00:04:27 --> 00:04:31

going back to the very beginning of World War Two and was

00:04:32 --> 00:04:59

yeah you will Muslim and we gave the context here last session. The story of revelation who the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam was and we mentioned, this is one of the first revelations what's an important point for us to take from this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in order to handle all the difficulties of social reformulation of bringing a new message for people to correct where people went wrong to bring about the message of Allah subhanaw taala with its details later on as well in

00:05:00 --> 00:05:41

waterfront a prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, to handle the difficulties of Dawa, to bring re formation and goodness and salvation for people? What did he need, he needed some kind of training, some kind of preparation. And of course, who best to prepare you to change the world than the one who created the world who best to prepare you to benefit other people and train other people and change the hearts and lives of other people than the one who created these hearts. And these lives. In the United States alone on an annual basis. It is estimated that companies pay almost $100 billion dollars a year to train their employees or their clients. And I want you to consider whether

00:05:41 --> 00:06:16

you're a volunteer, you're older, you're younger, at any capacity, the idea of training, not just through a company, not just corporate training, but any kind of training you've ever saw a program, you sign up for a class, you sign up for a workshop, you sign up, sign up for personal development books that you read, because these things are important, right, you're developing yourself, you're overcoming a lot of things, you're letting go of a lot of things of the past that you experienced. And as you're developing yourself, I want you to think of the following point. When we pay for things, especially the things that are paid for when we pay for these things, it's because we

00:06:16 --> 00:06:50

believe that the one who is training us helping us that book that you're reading the video series that you sign up for the live class as well, that there is something in that product or that individual that has value expertise and proficiency in a specific fields or knowledge that will benefit you. You're not going to go for example, to a random person and say train me and you have no idea what their qualifications are. Now again, people pay a lot of money to be trained, and they will pay more money to be trained by people with more experience with people with more knowledge people with more understanding more wisdom, in this area of life. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:06:50 --> 00:07:25

sallam was being trained, prepared by Allah subhanho wa taala. And if you want to change the world, you must look to the training that was given to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam and the great companions, especially those from the earliest days of Islam, in order to understand how to change yourself and to change other people. Because if you want to be successful in raising children, or righteous children, if you want to be successful, as a believer, if you want to be successful, successful with helping, let's say, Muslims and non Muslims, helping your community, it doesn't matter what specifically your scope is, if you want to be successful from the Islamic paradigm, you

00:07:25 --> 00:08:03

need to first be trained, meaning you need to work on the condition within yourself. Many times we rush to fix other things, and we're not focusing on on the things internal to us, that would, if they were corrected, would completely change the way that we deal with societal issues or family issues or relationships. And so the emphasis here is for you to begin with training from Allah subhanaw taala for yourself. And by definition, many forms of training are not easy takes a lot of effort. When you are, for example, training your body. Let's say there's a competition bodybuilding competition or someone is training for a marathon or someone is training, let's say to drop 50

00:08:03 --> 00:08:38

pounds, 100 pounds and just a year or two years, depending on what their goal is. It's it doesn't come easy, there's going to be effort, there's going to be difficult to you're going to you're not going to be lazy. So for you to accomplish your goal, you need expertise, you need a plan, you need to know what to do. But it all begins internally. And it must begin internally. And no Muslim can say no, no righteous, true Muslim who understands what Islam is, can say I want to change society and the world for the better. But I don't want to I don't want to do so through the training that Allah provides. Why? Because you're going to make a lot of mistakes, otherwise, you're going to fall

00:08:38 --> 00:09:14

short you're going to be ineffective compared to the potential you can reach if you are to utilize this training regimen. So what is the training from Allah subhanaw taala it begins with you animals. And of course later we will cover you how to move inshallah and so when we talk about Yeah, you had a Muslim and we explain what this what this was, Oh, you who is covered or you miss wearing your garment? Oh, you is asking the media. When is a media cover me cover me when he came back after the first revelations on the Lohani Salam, holding later in La Jolla stand for the entire night in prayer except for a little and we'll talk about the rest of it leader in sha Allah. So what are some

00:09:14 --> 00:09:46

things we can take to train ourselves because this is not going to be easy. But the end result the prophets Allah Islam changed the world in 23 years, the Sahaba who learned and were trained by him directly and very closely and they followed the ruins of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. They change the world as well. Even after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam if you want to change the world, you must begin with a training program to change the world and that comes from the One who created the world. One of the lessons we can take here is yeah, you when was the middle coming later? Illa Polina, there are many things that worry you in life. Everyone has worries to some capacity to some

00:09:46 --> 00:10:00

degree, and things that scare people and different forms of fear and degrees of pain and anxieties. Even right now during our live class right now. Perhaps everyone here has their own concerns about something whether for this life or the next life something you

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

You're going through, and we are reminded through the incidence of the first revelation and how the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam went to her digital the Lohana and how Allah subhanaw taala here is addressing him. Yeah, you want to zoom in for me later? elcon ila, that you can be healed from a lot of the worries that you have a lot of the anxieties and pain and concerns about this world. You can be healed through what through a proper consistent habits of a clear, manly woman, Leila de la Kalia. Additionally, we can say that a single raka has the potential, a single rocker that you pray sincerely in the depths of the night, without other people known without posting on social media

00:10:38 --> 00:11:10

without even hinting indirectly on responding to messages or calls at 4am When people know I'm asleep, no, I'm awake. And now I'm praying none of that purely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala in the darkness of the night, you're praying that single as a prayer or Torah cause that is better for you then this dunya and everything of this world so if you're someone who sees a really nice car, a mansion brand, name, a job certain income, and you're like, wow, I really want that while these people on social media, they have really nice cars, these people have really nice houses, oh my god, they built their own million dollar home and we're looking at these things all over the

00:11:10 --> 00:11:49

internet. And you think to yourself for a moment I want that, right? I wish I had that. And we're not talking here of course about the desire of a dunya but rather the perspective on the value of a dunya versus that play on really that tool has that you pray to get out of your bed and pray two rakaat sincerely for the sake of Allah in the darkness of the night it's better than this world and everything in it wants to penetrate allow us to be consistent in this habit Aloma I mean, number three another thing we can take another lesson, notice how in these two swords the next sword as well and Sharla Yeah, you honeymoon home for and the Prophet solo is and I was told stand and give

00:11:49 --> 00:12:29

our warm people. So now the machine has started home for under this is one of the first revelations and then you have an assault on Muslim and the one we're covering right now, probably later in life on either. So you have two things stand and give Dawa stand and convey stand and preach. And you have here stand in the prayer throughout the night except for a little. These are two very powerful reminders from the very beginning before the mission of life is fulfilled. That great and noble aspirations and goals and objectives. You cannot achieve them with laziness, or seclusion from everything else sitting around doing nothing wasting time. You cannot achieve social reformulation.

00:12:29 --> 00:13:02

being lazy, you cannot achieve the greatest heights of who you are being lazy, you simply cannot. And we know this. And this is a constant struggle in life. And of course, we're always working to improve no matter what the situation is. But think about these two, these two formulas, the components, comfort and the formulator Illa Cadila. These two components stand and give our stand in the night. Basically, in other words, you have to take action, you have to take action if you're looking at people online or offline and you see them accomplishing things. You're like, wow, mashallah she saw accomplished, he saw accomplished, they're doing this, they're doing that. And you

00:13:02 --> 00:13:42

say, Well, I wish I was in that position. Are you doing something with your current life, to to exemplify to reflect someone who is standing and wanting standing and giving Dawa standing and praying during the night in some capacity. And so these are two reminders that laziness does not lead to the results that you want. Number four, when you think of these two components of training for the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam formulated Illa Paulina, on the Ender, you recharge your spiritual and your psychological states at night, in order to be successful with your mission, your lifelong mission during the day. And so you have during the day obligations that people have upon

00:13:42 --> 00:14:15

you, your livelihood and our whatever it may be your job, your your studies, your family, the raising of your children, but then at night, you have a private conversation with Allah at night before you sleep every night you're praying at least Turaga sincerely for the sake of Allah, and consistently throughout your life, you're praying and you're reading Quran, and you're not missing for example, Fajr prayer. So you take care of this private time between you and Allah to recharge to recharge who you are, and you will find your psychological state and benefiting from this like nothing else. Number five another benefits from yet you want to zoom in as a reflection is that the

00:14:15 --> 00:14:48

night prayer Cleon will lay in many of its forms, whether you can pray or not, whether you're just making dua, you're making stuff while you're reading Quran, it is one of the greatest acts of worship in the sight of Allah and of course, it requires a much longer separate lecture. But one thing to keep in mind, this is one of the greatest ways for all of us today to really build our last our sincere sincerity and your service with Allah subhanho wa taala. Yes, you may be a volunteer, you may be a parent, you may be a community member, you may be posting things on social media, all of that is great hamdulillah so long as you are sincere. May Allah keep us all sincere. But what's

00:14:48 --> 00:14:59

more important than that are the private deeds between you and Allah? If there are no private deeds between you and Allah whatsoever, then there's something to worry about. May Allah protect us? I think there should be private deeds and I don't say this to scare you, but rather

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

To remind us to awaken the heart that is becoming heedless and connected just to what people see May Allah protect us true sincerely with Allah will come through private deeds, whatever you can make private make it private as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam advised in terms of being burned out. So when you pray a clam will late at night, every night before you seek to rock house or if you're able to tahajud you wake up at night, pray to rock as whatever it is that you can do. This is one of the greatest ways to build sincerely, this is one of the greatest ways to to show that you are true to your covenant, your commitment with Allah subhanaw taala. And these days, unfortunately, as we all

00:15:33 --> 00:16:12

know, right now, a lot of people may Allah protect us all are affected by showing off my public praise, credit, status theme social media posts, images, about their works, images, about their messages, volunteerism, images, about their local dollar organization, images about their upcoming programs, or whatever it is that you're doing, or even about their children about their Ramadan the way that they are worshiping. And so it's not always going to be easy with all of this to be consistently private, to make everything private. But what you pray of Liam in private, what you pray at night in terms of prayer, in privacy, you know, it is sincere because you're not doing so

00:16:12 --> 00:16:44

for anyone else. And that's one of the greatest ways to help yourself. Purify your intentions with external deeds as well because you have now strong, reliable relationship with the one that is sincere so it will ensure Montana benefit you in other areas of life as well. And number six, in the last point in sha Allah, on you and resentment, when you think of social reform mission, and you think of history and you think of changing the world, this idea that people have that they want to be good and they want others to be good, and to inspire others to leave something behind to raise good children, whatever it may be that your goal is, there is no messenger, there is no prophet who

00:16:44 --> 00:17:23

was sent to convey a message to people except that ALLAH subhanaw taala commanded them first to perfect their a banner. Before their mission they were commanded to work on their relationship with Allah in private why? Because social reform mission to change the world for the better. Social reformulation is a lifelong commitment and it comes with what as we all see, comes with a lot of obstacles, enemies, opponents, opposition, difficulties, challenges, and so on and so forth. A lot of severe difficulties and times. And generally speaking, when you think of difficulties, difficulties require you to be one firm. So you know, here that re formation, to give Dawa to be

00:17:23 --> 00:18:01

good to raise your children. It'll come with severe difficulties we recognize it's a package and these severe difficulties however severe they may be require you to be firm require, still calm a firmness, and nothing will give you firmness, nothing will give you is still common for the believing social reformer here, like a strong relationship with Allah subhanaw taala, through your reburn through your acts of worship, so through your Ibadah like the prophets and messengers that came before through your Alibaba, you're able to then start to change others, you're then able to stay consistent, you're able to persevere. A lot of people burn out when they volunteer, a lot of

00:18:01 --> 00:18:36

people burn out when they start to give a dime. A lot of people even when they're seeking knowledge, they start with a lot and there's no foundation, they don't have enough of the loss of data and then suddenly they burn out. May Allah protect us being consistent and having a strong foundation in acts of worship, connection with Allah you will resemble COVID later in LA Palina. You stand for the night prayer you will find yourself strong you will find yourself persevering when people attack you insult you, whatever it may be, you're calm, you're cool, you're collected, you're wise, you're strategic, you're rational, you are connected to Allah subhanho wa taala. And as we all see, we need

00:18:36 --> 00:19:12

that we are in need of that. And if you if you consider and reflect on the many famous names you know of people who were credited with, let's say, Hamad Al Fattah, the conquest or Liberation's of certain cities or regions in history, or the famous names Alladhina, you will have Mala and you go even all the way back all the way to Omar Abdulaziz, you go to even our Pablo the long run. When you think of these names, you really cannot think of someone who is not connected to Allah. You're not thinking of someone who's not praying the night prayer you're not thinking of someone who's for example, Salahuddin was known in many cases, not always, but he was known to surround himself not

00:19:12 --> 00:19:46

just with any soldiers or generals, but those who had memorized the Quran and we're praying for yam will lead with it. And before the liberation in 1187. Before the liberation of inputs, for example, they will be praying during the night a group was reciting the Quran. So you have here a connection to Allah before you are trying to change the world. And this doesn't mean don't take action now because your connection to Allah is weak. Take Action, keep taking action. If you're a volunteer, you're an activist, you're doing something good, keep doing it. And of course do so in the right way. But make sure you are working really strongly, really consistently on your private relationship

00:19:46 --> 00:20:00

with Allah there is nothing that will amplify your Dawa and your social reformation and the raising of righteous social reformers as well than to be righteous yourself and this is something we are in need of May Allah subhanaw taala all of us to utilize this and to benefit from

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

As training, again training from Allah subhanaw taala to human beings to the prophets and messengers, Omen Leila Illa Kalia, now we describe the beginning of the surah This is why we're on course Minho. Calida Ozy dolly he wanted in Khurana Tata. So pray during the entirety of the night we mentioned it was an obligation in the beginning it was an obligation to pray for the family. How much of the family all of the night except for a little you can estimate half of it or a little less than that or a little more than that. And we're arterial Khurana Tata. What Tyrion Khurana Tata recite the Quran with a tarty with a beautiful resuscitation tell Tina here means recite it slowly.

00:20:39 --> 00:21:16

Recite it while you're focusing, recite it with contemplation, and why are you reciting slowly and pausing and thinking you're contemplating what you're reciting? For example, when you hear about I don't like to use this term, but I think some of you have heard this before or you've seen videos like this unfortunately, the so called Ferrara Imam, the kind of Imam that unfortunately May Allah guide them May Allah guide May Allah guide them, they're taught to think that the objective of tearaway heracleum will lead is to finish a certain number of broadcasts and it's not to emphasize the the actual Quran that you're reciting. So instead of saying Alhamdulillah here or be LA, me, how

00:21:16 --> 00:21:49

are they reciting some little blonde? I mean that off my lucky mannequin with any I can oh, they're gonna sign in there some other stuff and then Allahu Akbar, like what just happened in and a lot did you even did you even think about any area you just recited? If you think about anything at all, did you pause at the end of the I want to borrow an atom tila? Now, there are some cases sometimes in which you may recite a little quicker than other times. Sometimes you may be reciting to review a page 2030 times so yes, naturally, you're going to recite quickly don't recite too slowly. But generally speaking, when you're praying when you're praying or you're reciting Quran for your

00:21:49 --> 00:22:27

HeartMath for your Tilawat for your daily with and everyone should have their daily connection when you're reciting you should be reciting with emphasis slowly pausing with a pleasant tone as much as you can you pause at the end of the ayah so that you comprehend what you just recited. For example, every time you recite e Kirner, mu E. Canis starin you're not supposed to be thinking oh, I just finished this. I'm moving on to the next you're not supposed to be resetting very quickly. Why do you recite slow and pause as the Prophet sallallahu Knysna pas er can do what he can assign this is the A that summarizes all of Islam and the heart of salted Fattah O Allah it is You we worship and

00:22:27 --> 00:23:00

You will rely upon we trust in You we turn to you, we depend on you. We have nothing else and no one else to rely upon it. Oh Allah. So imagine the difference between your psychological state your mental health, your spiritual health, when you recite this is slowly and you think you pause. Compare that to the one who thinks of Salah as a physical thing, or a checklist. I just got to finish my prayer. I just got to check it off the list. I just gotta get so out of the way and then I can hang up. Focus on yourself. Don't rush it. You're a conversation with Allah the King of all kings recite it slowly one on tears but Anna Tata, so you're reflecting when you recite a name of

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

Allah subhanho wa taala. For example, the end of salted hash, resending all these beautiful names Allah or you're reciting one one a cliche and for the one who will ask these over four and so on and so forth, recite it and think about the beautiful names along the power of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala who will be equally shaken and we recited in the last little at the end of Surah, Turgeon right what how can we condition adda ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala knows every single thing in terms of knowledge. And so when you think about that name of Allah in your Salah, as you read Quran, what Attila Khurana Tata, what would happen to us brothers and sisters, naturally naturally you're going

00:23:34 --> 00:24:11

to be moved your Eman will increase you'll find yourself reinforced, you'll find your hearts becoming stronger your mind becoming more at ease more connected to Allah or inspired by His Majesty his glory subhanho wa Taala when you recite an ayah about Jana and I about mercy, what are you supposed to say she was to ask Allah for His mercy, Allah Mohammed automatically was here Oh, alarming and so you can so when you recite an A about mercy, pauses will reflect and ask Allah for that mercy. ask Allah for that mercy when you recite an eye about the anger of Allah or the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala contrasting that with the first what do you do Aloma German

00:24:11 --> 00:24:46

enough? So you ask Omar to protect you. But what happens if you're flying through every Surah you're flying everyday in your recitation of the Quran? Are you going to reflect will your heart benefit from that salah? Will your mind find ease when would you find your mental health improving through the recitation of the Quran? What antenatal Khurana Tala Tina? So think about it the rulings of the Carandang are only a few 100 amongst the 6000 ions but even those when you recite think about the hook on the ruling Am I applying this in my life? And generally speaking, we say what it is called an authority that when any Muslim tries to recite the Quran if you're able to recite whatever it is

00:24:46 --> 00:25:00

you can recite, recite it with a consideration of the meaning with a pause with a focus and think about Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu it was in how did he use to recite the Quran? I shot all the along on how reported he used to recite the

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

sought out slowly, so much so that it would be longer than the sources that were actually longer than its meaning what he would recite sometimes so slowly, some lies and have to contemplate to reflect with pausing at the end of the ayat, sometimes to the point where it may have seemed like it's much longer than a surah that actually is longer than it and it's really a long one was asked about the recitation of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam imagine brothers and sisters being in that place and time to hear the prophets Eliasson and recite the Quran. Imagine that feeling of praying behind him in the masjid, so and so on. The long run was asked about the recitation and he

00:25:35 --> 00:26:16

said he used to elongate the letters, so you're not reciting for example, or off Mani Rahim No. overwash manual war he the Prophet slicin them took his time. On sentimental the long run, it was asked the same question. She responded that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam recited every area separately and distinctly and he observed a pause at the end of every i So when he would recite Surah Al Fatiha despite the fact that it's permissible to connect and combine some Ayat Al hamdu, Lillahi Rabbil aalameen or Manuel Rahim, it is permissible. However, what is much more encouraged is to follow in the footsteps of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and again, it's not about Havana

00:26:16 --> 00:26:58

haram here. But what's encouraged you to follow in his example, because there's a benefit here. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is an OSA he's a role model for all of us. So when you recite Al Hamdulillah Hirak be Lalani and you pause for a moment to reflect. You just praised Allah subhanaw taala and you acknowledge all praise in the universe is due to Allah subhanaw taala The Lord of the worlds and then our watchman Elohim pause Manichaean within pause reflect you are in a conversation with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada are they follow the long run reported one time I stood beside the Prophet salallahu Salam, ala Yun will lay the night prayer to see how he recited the Quran. I noticed that

00:26:58 --> 00:27:33

he glorified Allah where he should be glorified. For example, some very small optical arena, you're supposed to pause and say what Subhan Allah will be Alana. So you glorify Allah, perfect the perfection of Allah subhanaw taala and he would what invoke and supplicate Allah where he should be invoked in supplication make dua for mercy at certain ions, the ions of Jana the atom, Allah's mercy, ask Allah for mercy, and is permissible in the prayer by the way, and when you would read a an AI about punishment or the anger of Allah or people of evil, you would seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala. So you would ask Allah Subhana Allah for protection along the northern becoming not

00:27:33 --> 00:28:10

along the edge of Namita not and so on and so forth. Even Ambassador the long run, if you want to look to the Companions as well, he said, It is more beloved to me, it is much more beloved to me to recite a single a single eye or a single Surah of the Quran than with contemplation than to recite the entire Quran without meaning. It's better for us to reflect with contemplation to recite with terrible contemplation on the IR to their meanings, the translation if you need it as well, there's no problem with that. And in addition to this brothers and sisters, up to this point, all we discussed was the slavery citation. And all we discussed was the contemplation what we want to add

00:28:10 --> 00:28:47

to this no matter who you are, what your background is. When you read the Quran, follow the advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam which is beautify your beautify the Quran with your voices when you recite the Quran try to beautify as much as you possibly can. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us what they you know, they you know, meaning make beautiful or adorn the Quran is a you know Khurana V or Swati come. So when you recite try your best to beautify your voice. Don't feel embarrassed, don't feel shy, you're being rewarded for this. May Allah Subhana Allah bless you all, may Allah allow us to work on what we have and improve what we have and continue seeking Allah

00:28:47 --> 00:29:23

subhanaw taala as pleasure don't look at what other people are doing, try to do the best you can possibly do. And the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said he is not from amongst us, the one who does not try to recite the Quran nicely meaning put in effort. Don't just say hamdulillahi rabbil, Alameen Rahmani Raheem, try try to recite hamdulillah here on Billa. Let me mean sometimes you're slowing down and focusing on the different pitches and sometimes listening to recite it over and over and over will help you inshallah Tada. And these are just a few reminders, but in the law in terms of what arterial Khurana Tatianna, there was a weak Hadith According to some scholars reported

00:29:23 --> 00:29:59

by level we from even Masaru that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said, do not scatter the recitation of the Quran, like the scattering of the sand and do not rush through that re citation, like the hasty re citation of poetry, stop at its amazing parts and make your heart move with it. And none of you should allow his concern or her concern to be to reach the end of the surah meaning what don't recite, we're thinking, Well, I just want to finish the entire product. You want to finish a surah for the sake of a number for the sake of a checklist for the sake of competition. No, I want to I want to read through these ayat and enjoy the journey. Meaning what don't look at the

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

finished Mark.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:41

Don't Don't look at the end, basically the end of the resuscitation or goal. Think about the process as you're resetting every single day. May Allah subhanaw taala make us all amongst those who follow this command, what to call the Anatole Tila, the recitation of the Quran with proper slow focus and to try to beautify as much as you can within your capacity and they almost have had a strength in our hearts through the Quran and allows to be devoted to it along the Amin along with me. Now, the next passage here, the next passage in the Surah, so after what it will call Anna Tata, Allah subhanaw taala reminds the prophets lie Selim and reminds us so 21st century you're wondering about

00:30:41 --> 00:31:18

the way that the Quran shapes the world and changes the world for the better and many non Muslims as well affected by the goodness of Islam even though they have not directly heard about Islam. Allah subhanaw taala says in the next day, in us a nuclear Laker Poland tequila, surely we are sending down upon you a very weighty Word weighty meaning a very heavy revelation of Poland Sakina. So you have a responsibility. Now everyone has some kind of responsibility Old and young. We have some very young people mashallah here and of course, other young people here as well. hamdulillah everyone has or has had some kind of responsibility in life, you may have a responsibility with your job raising

00:31:18 --> 00:31:53

your children, you may be a mother, you may be a father, a wife, a husband, you may be a student you are studying, you have assignments tonight for example, may Allah Subhana Allah protect us from procrastinating alone. I mean, everyone has a responsibility. But we know in addition to that, not every responsibility is the same. Not all responsibilities are equal. Some responsibilities you have are greater than others. Your responsibility for example, to pray your prayers is not like your responsibility to clean your room there. There's one is for your outfit or for gender protection from now on. It's an obligation cleaning your room is important, right? But if you had to choose at

00:31:53 --> 00:32:29

this time, do I do this? Do I do that and it's time for Salah of course Salah comes first. Why am I mentioning this? So Allah Subhana Allah says that we are bringing down to you in a salute the article Poland's Aquila, a very weighty, very heavy word. So this responsibility is a very heavy one, you are taking now or Rasulullah, one of the heaviest responsibilities for all human beings throughout the history of mankind, which is what you convey a message from God, to his creation, from Allah to his creation. So what's happened, he's been trained, he's being prepared. When you're raising your children upon Islam and Eman and you're training them to be strong people to be

00:32:29 --> 00:33:03

responsible people. One of the things we should recognize is that they should be aware and should have some understanding expectations in advance of what kind of responsibility is given to them in different areas of their lives. Now you've reached this point where you are responsible, let's say for your, for cleaning your room, you're responsible for your homework, you're responsible for reading Quran and you're irresponsible for praying on your own without people following up why because Allah is watching you and you're old enough to understand in advance, prepare and train the individual, old and young regardless of what it is we're talking about training and preparation and

00:33:03 --> 00:33:40

expectations about the responsibility that you're going to need. Through this heavy responsibility through this very difficult responsibility. You're going to need the proper expectation to follow the commands of Allah demonstrating the Quran the Prophet slicin was like a call and a teaching of the Koran walking as a human being manifesting in a human being demonstrating its teachings explaining the Quran inviting others to it, and completely bringing about just a revolution for mankind and the entire world an entire revolution in terms of a system of belief, a system of thought, a system of morals and manners etiquettes of people and with people the rights that people

00:33:40 --> 00:34:19

have upon one another, the change in civilization reforming social life, and generally speaking, this is this is the greatest weightiest task we can possibly think of for any human being throughout history. And Allah subhanaw taala uses the word fajita heavy, not just here but elsewhere in the Quran surah to the Sun which we will cover later in our series inshallah. Inshallah Allah, moon and Arjuna while you're the Runa Yeoman Sakina Surely these pagans these disbelievers they love this world this fleeting world allows you the quick life they're attached to money they're attached to well they're attached to brand names that attach a chilling that's all they want. They don't want

00:34:19 --> 00:34:55

anything else. And what do they do? Well, they are their own our own they are totally neglecting throwing like behind them like turning away from wire their own our own humans Athena, neglecting a heavy day away the day ahead of them. It's guaranteed but they're ignoring it. So here you have this heavy responsibility and inevitable day the heaviest day you will ever experience in the day of judgment and yet these people are ignoring you. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada utilizes the word itself Lila there and the word Sakina. Here Poland, Takeda and yeomen thought leader a heavy day and also have a speech and so for you to be successful and safe on that heavy or weighty or severe day. You

00:34:55 --> 00:34:59

need to take advantage today. You need to take a hold of today.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:36

and follow to the the heavy speech code and tequila that is available accessible in the Quran the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you follow golden tequila here in this world through your free will and you follow this responsibility and you fulfill it, and you share it with others, you will find the Day of Judgment, Yeoman Thumbelina a very easy day for you may Allah subhanho wa Taala is our affairs and allow us to be prepared for that day along with me. Now, why else is it colon felida? Some of you know that from the Syrah the way the Quran came down to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam was very heavy, even though he could have been made easy, but it's very

00:35:36 --> 00:36:11

heavy. This is the speech of Allah from Jeopardy nanny serve to Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu Salam so when he received the Quran, when he received the way physically they could tell psychologically they could tell they had been through the Allah one who says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam received received some why revelation while he was sitting basically next to me, his thigh was basically right next to his thigh, like on top of part of it. And he said, my thigh my foot was almost crushed because of the weight of the Revelation. In another Hadith, a lot of Hadith like this many, many narrations. This was reported, obviously, from the beginning of prophethood, from Ilpo,

00:36:11 --> 00:36:47

all the way until the last knees, how did the Prophet sighs I've received the way. He said Ali salatu salam in terms of the revelation sometimes it comes to me like the ringing of a bell and it is most severe upon me, that's the most severe form. So it's like a really loud sound as the y is coming down. And the Quran is basically coming to the Prophet sallallaahu salam from Djibouti Lani setup. He said, and then this state passes away from me after I have grasped what is revealed to me what what is inspired, and sometimes the angel comes to me in the form of a human being in the form of a man, and he talks to me and basically he recites and then I grasp whatever he says, so he

00:36:47 --> 00:37:25

recites the Quran, I repeat it, I repeat it, I repeat it until I've memorized it. So these are some of the forms of why, again, imagine the ringing of a bell the prophets are supposed to sweat a lot. You should only log on and said one time, of course, she saw many occurrences of why she said one time I saw him receiving revelation and the sweat dropping from his forehead on a very cold day as the revelation ended. So the Prophet SAW I sent him was was facing this this heavy speech, even in the physical world, it's not just heavy symbolically in terms of its value. Action on the long run has said that if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received why, while he was writing on an

00:37:25 --> 00:38:02

animal, imagine a camel or a horse. If he received it while he was riding on an animal it would begin moving the bottom of its neck intensely so even the animal would feel the weight, basically coming down on it as if it's crushing it. And we are reminded, just as the Quran is heavy in this world, polenta cleaner, it will also be heavy on the day of judgment in the skills so recite as much of it as you can memorize as much of it as you can. No Muslim who is educated who has the money and time and ability to to connect with the Quran to memorize on a daily basis. No Muslim should say that's not my goal in life. I don't care about that. I'm like, this is the heaviest thing you can

00:38:02 --> 00:38:14

take. This is the heaviest thing you can take to your skill of these on the day of judgment and that skill is the one that you will want to be filming Allah subhanaw taala fill our skills with good deeds and heavy deeds along with me

00:38:15 --> 00:38:55

in as a nuclear alayka polenta cleaner and then Allah subhanaw taala says so now we are Aya number six in the shelter lady here I should do what one will occur one more Kayla. So in the next verse, Allah subhanaw taala saying, Indeed, the rising at the nighttime, it's very difficult and potent and it's good for governing the soul, and it is most suitable for understanding the word of Allah subhanaw taala what is Nasha Nasha at La La Shia means multiple things. Number one, we'll mention four of them. Number one, it implies the one who rises to pray at night. Number two era, it refers to the hours of the night number three, it refers to the rise in Clea Moonglade and number for the

00:38:55 --> 00:39:28

rising after having slept for some time. So let's say you're chilling until 1am. And then you say you know what, I'm gonna get up and pray to her Do you haven't slept yet? Will you be rewarded? Is it clear? Milady? Yes, absolutely. Don't ever say this is not rewarding enough. No, it's rewarding, great. But what's more rewarding than that is for the one who slept and then woke up and prayed and that is a difficult deed. For the one who does so regularly and consistently, they will find themselves building towards something much greater. And that's a conditioning of the self that we should all strive for on a nightly basis May Allah subhanaw taala keep us consistent, sincere alarm

00:39:28 --> 00:40:00

I mean even if it means your family doesn't know even if it means your loved ones are not aware to take advantage of the connection with a lot at night. If you cannot pray during the night when you have a habit of waking up every single night. Wake up anyway and make Hulu or making the kid and dua Facebook unlimited decurrent Dua recite the Quran, and so on and so forth. But take advantage take advantage of that time. Sometimes as we all know, you wake up at 2am or 3am You did not intend to that night or you did not intend to at that time before your let's say, to hedge your time before your family before Fajr if you wake up

00:40:00 --> 00:40:20

That night take advantage making sure sometimes you're sitting up in your bed making dua for 510 15 minutes. It's greater than what going back to sleep and ignoring the fact that maybe Allah sent an angel to eat your meal. Maybe Allah subhana sent or caused your angel to wake you up and there are many references to this in many a hadith. If we have the time we'll cover that later Inshallah, but take advantage of that blessing.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:59

When we talk about the the inertia of the night, the hours of the night, and every hour of the night is Nasha. So refers to like the periods of time you're standing to pray, we can say here that the darkness of the night is an opportunity, it is a full of slot for your heart to be filled with a light with a * through the Quran, or through prayer and thicker. So take advantage in the depths of the darkness is of the night to be filled in terms of your home, your heart, your mind with a light that is from Allah subhana wa Tada. We all desire, a type of tranquility, comfort, pleasure. And when you're willing to give up your physical pleasure for a spiritual pleasure, you've

00:40:59 --> 00:41:34

controlled yourself, you control your neffs. The neffs generally generally wants to be physically comfortable that you're wearing something comfortable, you're warmed up, you have your blanket, and you're thinking what it's called, I don't feel like getting up and praying not tonight, and you're maybe not even thinking clearly. When you are willing to give up to forsake your bed to give up your sleep. To make the right tool not just for 10 minutes to pray to rock us for 10 minutes. You're basically taking control of your knifes and you are training it disciplining it, you're automating something you are conditioning, a muscle, your spiritual muscle here that is stronger than your

00:41:34 --> 00:42:10

physical muscle. And how is it stronger, you can say for example, young person, maybe some of us here if you're able to handle a walk, you're able to exercise you're healthy, generally speaking, may Allah preserve you on your health and grant all all of us Shiva and our loved ones. If you are physically healthy and strong, and let's say you're even young, it does not necessitate because of your physical health and conditioning or the fact that you can benchpress 300 pounds or you're lifting that dumbbell or you can run on the treadmill for three hours. That's not the strength we're talking about here. Because that person can sleep, wake up 4pm and ignore wake up for fidget, ignore

00:42:10 --> 00:42:44

and they go back to sleep. Whereas someone in their 80s and 90s they might be struggling in their bodies, they might they might be dealing with a test in terms of their health, as many people do at that age. And yet when they wake up at night, they get out of bed they're used to they've conditioned their nerves, they get out of bed and they pray to Allah subhanaw taala why because here they've conditioned themselves for a long time they've disciplined the physical body and the knifes to say what know my Eman is stronger than my desire to sleep? My comfort? My pleasure. Yeah, even resentment, Allah is not addressing just anyone here are you who is covered? Are you whose clothes

00:42:44 --> 00:43:19

are you in garments? Think of the one who is under the blanket brothers and sisters. Yes, this was about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but it's also about us. It's also about you, it's about your family, are you who is covered are you who is under that blanket Are you is comfortable, physically speaking in terms of your bed for me later, Illa Canina stand and pray during the night even if it's a short amount of time. The other thing we consider here is not when you pray at night or you connect with Allah, when when when you hear all this noise in society, all the noise of social media current events, not just the pandemic, everything that's constantly happening. We all we all know

00:43:19 --> 00:43:54

the experience of reading too much of the news and I don't personally believe, you know, like, there's too much for everyone depends on who you are and what you do. For some people, awareness is more important than others. But generally speaking, generally speaking, we know that experience went on some days or some weeks, the news seems to be one difficulty, after difficulty after difficulty, and people start to become more pessimistic, negative feeling down. And so when you think of that experience, and how sometimes people are struggling in terms of their hearts, in terms of their mental health, in terms of their mind, we want to produce internally a conditioning, and a thought

00:43:54 --> 00:44:26

process that is positive and connected to Allah. And that confidence and optimism doesn't come from me, it does not come from you comes from Allah subhanaw taala. And you want to create a harmony between your heart your beliefs internally, and your external state. You know, oftentimes when you talk about characters, in movies and novels, you talk about a character who they are. It's not necessarily what people see. So if you're writing the first person, you're hearing about the character, you're reading this character, you're like, I know who this person is. But then you hear about how they're talking and how people are perceiving them. And they are two different things. Now

00:44:26 --> 00:44:59

forget other people. What about the character and what they are doing externally? Maybe there's a tension between what they're doing externally and what they feel internally and they need to fix something in terms of the harmony between their inner state and their outer state. There is nothing that produces that harmony in the heart, that harmony of iman of beliefs and conformity between the interior and the exterior of this person. Then the night prayer then, Melinda and a connection with Allah subhana wa. And we all know this, we seek comfort we seek tranquility, despite and in spite of all the noise in the

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

world and if you want to find it within your own home within your own capacity, it's available to you every single night and the one who does so clearly is doing so due to sincerity. They're not doing so to show off or because they were forced. No, we're talking about the one who abandons their bed and the comfort of their bed, they get up and they pray they get up they make dua for 10 minutes, and then they arrest again and they build that habit from there. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us may Allah Subhan the greatest sincerely May Allah keep us consistent Allama mean take advantage of Korea Malaysia it is life changing is life changing, it is life changing. May Allah

00:45:33 --> 00:46:12

Subhana Allah keep us consistent upon it until the day that we die along with me the next day in America in a hurry Subhan Allah verily for you in the daytime is a lengthy sub sub Helen Babila. What is this lengthy sub, this is according to many of the Sahaba as they were explaining it, this is basically referring to leisure, aspirations, activities, goals, livelihood, this is referring to your needs, your livelihood, your job, your studies, and the night is purely for religious devotion so purely for you and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala said this when clear Milady was wajib it was obligatory, and then Allah blessed his servants and his creation and made it easier for

00:46:12 --> 00:46:46

them and remove the obligation of pm only. We'll talk more about that obligation later on and shall long time. And verse number eight. What good is mellow beaker whatever tell elated Tila, so now we know that we are thinking of ourselves as a Muslim, you are the covered one, the one that Allah is addressing, stand and pray during the night we know that this is about the Prophet sallallaahu Salam but think of this addressed to you, or you who is covered in your comfortable clothes, your comfortable, comfortable bed, your comfortable apartment or home, stand and pray during the night stand and connect with a long train yourself. Train yourself, condition yourself. And this is how

00:46:46 --> 00:47:24

you're able to change and create change and other places in society whether it's through a coalition or volunteerism, or volunteering for your masjid, an organization Dawa whatever it may be even the raising of righteous children, reformers for the world, you must have conditioning from the One who created the soul with charisma not because but related to the night prayer, take advantage of the daytime to be productive in terms of your livelihood in terms of other types of Riba. And then remember Allah subhanaw taala regularly what Tibetan elating Tatiana, so remember a lot with goddess model, because I mentioned his name often, whatever tell it at the means devote yourself to Him with

00:47:24 --> 00:48:01

a strong true complete devotion. Now, this is similar to the saying of Allah that many of us read into the AMA for either federal funds on when you've finished with your basically occupations with your job when your livelihood financial means devote yourself to Allah to the worship of Allah, you finish your work your workshift devote yourself to lay finished your studies devote yourself to Allah some people misunderstand this they assume this means that Salah comes second and everything else comes second know what this means is that when you've completed the thing that you absolutely need, which also you're intending for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala at its right time in place,

00:48:01 --> 00:48:34

so it doesn't come before Salah does not come before obligations. But when you finish the things that you have to finish anyway, turn to Allah more in devotion to Allah and even increased devotion and remember his name often. When you remember the name of Allah subhana wa regularly you will find yourself being trained, you're training yourself for something strong, you're training yourself for something great for something noble, you want to change the world and you don't mention that even when Allah subhanaw taala then the definition of success that you're looking for is not the one that is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala that's not the type of change Allah is looking for. It's for you

00:48:34 --> 00:49:14

to recognize that you are a Muslim male you are amongst as Killeen Allah cathedral with that, you know, to the men and women who remember Allah frequently. And a devout worshiper, as even Jerry Rahim, Allah said, is called Alma Tibetan. So the one who is devoted to Allah what Tibet, tell la tierra, devote yourself to Allah with a strong Tabata. Now, don't misunderstand this, we're not talking here about anything beyond what the Prophet slicin have taught, because it has limits. Now, some people are surprised there are limited how much I can worship Allah. Yes, actually there are. And the limits here means we don't mean your physical limitations. If you become an extremist,

00:49:14 --> 00:49:52

meaning if you cross certain lines, then you have transgressed into a tobacco that is not permissible. Tobacco, for example, is for the one who says, I'm going to devote myself to God, and nothing else in this world, I will not work, I will not study I will not get married, I will never break my first meal fast every single day, I will never have a day off. So all of these are transgressions. This is Tibetan that is prohibited. This means a total devotion to rituals to a badass and avoiding getting married, avoiding, at least for the one who's able to avoiding getting married, avoiding our work avoiding livelihood, avoiding studies. No, that's not what worship is

00:49:52 --> 00:50:00

about. There are rituals about that at certain times and places. But if you transgress, and you abandon everything else, meaning

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

You no longer have anything else on this world terms of your pursuit, your family, your livelihood, you've crossed the line. Now, some people, of course, will misunderstand this and say, well, let's just take it easy. Allah says don't become extreme. That's not what we're talking about. We're talking about the type of person who thinks that Islam is like a monk worship, the one who basically is like monks in their monasteries, who go out to basically to their monasteries, they live lives of pure rituals, and they don't connect to society to anyone else. They don't do anything, they don't get married and all of this they basically tried to suppress every single desire, even the ones that

00:50:31 --> 00:51:09

Allah made permissible and this is a tobacco that is prohibited whatever tell eater dealer, devote yourself to Allah subhanaw taala with a devotion that is permissible, meaning in other words, devote yourself completely to Allah, your focus in life, everything that you have is for the sake of Allah. But in the Salah to honest Okay, well, Mahalia Almighty Allah, he probably learned me. So indeed, all of my prayers, my sacrifice, my life, my death, for the sake of Allah, Lord of the Worlds, may Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those who devote their time their efforts towards him. And may Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst a decade in a law cathedral with that good also those who will

00:51:09 --> 00:51:20

remember Allah frequently amongst the believing men and women. And may Allah Subhana Allah forgive us for our shortcomings in devotion along that I mean, what Boolean machinery will not reveal

00:51:21 --> 00:52:07

who factor in who Joaquina ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada alone is the Lord of the East and the West, none has the right to be worshipped by him. So take him alone as a walkie what is a working Disposer of affairs? And what is the IOU recite everyday to emphasize that you depend on a disposer of affairs? Yeah, can I do oh yeah, can assign. Now a word key is someone that you take to manage your affairs. If someone let's say a billionaire, or a trillionaire logged into this Tafseer class right now, life and said you know what, I'm going to offer everyone who's on or live for this Tafseer class, all 30 people on this call, I'm going to offer you every single thing that you need financially, I will

00:52:07 --> 00:52:44

take care of it for you. So you have limitless funding, limitless funding Yet Allah would you have a reason to really be worried about finances after that, and let's say that there are no hidden fees, no strings attached limitless funding your school, your job, your home, whatever it wherever you want to live, taking care of your family, and so on and so forth. So you've trusted this person, let's say they said I'm your wacky when it comes to wealth, I will take care of you. Now a white kid can also be someone who represents you, someone who does something on your behalf, right? You've taken someone as our kid, for example, for the court system, so they are speaking on your behalf. Do

00:52:44 --> 00:53:19

you have a reason to worry when the one who is your Joaquin, let's say is the Prophet sallallahu so what do you worry? What do you feel like I'm not sure I can trust I'm not sure I can right now, of course, you know, no doubt whatsoever you can trust and rely. Now what if the one who's you're working is the one who says couldn't fire couldn't be and it is the one who created this universe and every single thing in this universe and every atom and every cell belongs to Him meaning he possesses it controls it allows patterns aware of it. Who is Rob bull machinery well Mazuri La ilaha illa who Fatah who Akela you're not taking me as your disposal of affairs or the person logged on

00:53:19 --> 00:53:56

this call or the person next to you in your home. The one that you are trusting in the one you are relying upon is Robin metrically. When mother in law, there is no true deity there is no one who has the right to be worshipped except Allah. He is the controller and the Lord of all the East and the worst meaning of everything. Allah subhanaw taala couldn't fire couldn't be and it is Allah subhanaw taala taking care of you, how can you worry? If Allah is taking care of you? How can you worry if Allah is taking care of you, your opponents, your enemies, no matter who they are, or what strength they have in terms of military or physical strength, or anything else? They cannot do anything to

00:53:56 --> 00:54:37

you. If Allah subhanaw taala is protecting you for Abu what's our karate worship him and put your trust in Him? May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst al mutawa Killeen. Again, the one who manages the east and the west can manage your affairs as well. This is the point of the i in terms of the freezing. Robert illustratively when lovely La Ilaha telework Isla, who can tell us why this is important. In light of our discussion on the training of the Prophet sallahu wa salam the training that he'll need for this mission, who can tell us why this is so important. This Ira here, what are some lessons we can take from this i about the training of the believer who needs let's say strength

00:54:37 --> 00:55:00

and perseverance for their their mission in life to to spread goodness for social re formation. Why is this verse so important? What you're going to be doing changing society, you're going up against the elites and the chiefs and all of this. It seems like it's almost impossible. Like this is a very difficult thing. You're not doing anything, you're doing something significant, something magnificent. So it seems like an almost impossible to

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

Ask in other words, to connect the dots, you're going to need trust in Allah, you're going to need to rely upon Allah subhana wa Bucha who are totally put your trust in Him. When you're training yourself and other people to be strong in times of pain in times of difficulty, you're going to need certain components, certain types of things that will help you to be strong. The same way that if you're preparing for a basketball game for a marathon for your exam, you need certain things that will help you to to succeed to be strong in that sense, or that definition of strength. Here you're talking about being a strong human being. For you to be a strong human being in a social reformer,

00:55:36 --> 00:56:11

you absolutely need to live by this I got bullied mercilessly while mother de la ilaha illa who Satterfield who Akina May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst Omotola Killian when you put your trust in Allah brothers and sisters, don't only put your trust and love when things get difficult. Don't only put your trust and law when it gets cold and you're shivering. You say, Well now I need to trust in Allah to help me know the one who has trust in Allah true complete telecom. So that's what you should always aim for. is constant trust, trust in times of ease, and times of difficulty. trust in Allah subhanaw taala with things you think you're in control of and things that you think

00:56:11 --> 00:56:49

are out of your control, put your trust in Allah subhana wa Tada and you will be the most resilient of human beings you can get through the most difficult times and situations. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst me to work it in along with me. Now this next passage 10 to 14 all at once, I attend to 14 as a reminder again, components of training, a reminder about solder and your etiquette with people who are evil. How do you deal with people online people have evil, your own colleagues, your classmates, someone who insults you someone who oppose you someone who physically is attacking Muslims or is trying to stop Muslims from giving Dawa like in many places around the world where

00:56:49 --> 00:57:25

Muslims cannot even be openly Muslim May Allah protect them and relieve them and grant them justice and allow us to to be in their cause. Allama Amin so we start here with another part of the training program. What else do you need was Mira Anna, Maya, Hulu one Jerome Hassan Jamila wala is one of the most beautiful verses that many Muslims themselves in Dawa are not fulfilling May Allah protect us and forgive us why observed southern patients against what they say. So brothers and sisters when that person insults you, trolls you makes fun of Muslims. The first thing you have to have a slavery if you're not ready, if you're not ready to be patient, when that person just insults you, Allah

00:57:25 --> 00:58:00

Maya Angelou, how are you going to be patient with anything else. If you can't be patient, when people are just talking, it's very easy to to provoke you. It's very easy for you to get riled up, it's very easy for you to get defensive, it's very easy for you to explode emotionally, then you have to work on that element of solder internally, psychologically, because everything else that you're going to go through in life, you're going to need that level of slavery as a minimum, as a minimum. And for you to also be facing basically opposition to be facing people or to have different beliefs and be facing people who might not want the best for you Muslims or non Muslims. You're

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

going to need perseverance, restraint, Saudi to be cool, calm, collected, obviously, everything at its time and place was Villa Maria, who they said very hurtful things to the Prophet Salam Isola, they used to insult him they used to talk about about and they used to lie about him, and who is this person they are lying and talking about about? This is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and sometimes even his own uncle, one of his uncle's obviously was an enemy of Islam, even his own uncle would be attacking insulting rasool Allah and ally. So let me imagine how he felt as a loving person. May Allah subhana, Allah allow us to to follow the footsteps of the messenger, and in his

00:58:35 --> 00:58:54

Salatu was Salam. And even then, by the way, he did not abandon his family, he did not stop giving them down. He didn't give up on them. Some people as soon as their parents say something, their spouses say something their children say something someone says something about them automatically, they explode, may Allah protect us. We need to have some restraint. We need to have some restraint. We need to have some

00:58:55 --> 00:59:32

passivity, perseverance, some willpower, I'm not going to stoop to that level that you would like in terms of provoking In fact, that's what the devil wants. That's what the shape on once every everyone has with them, an angel and a devil, the angel calling and advising you to do good, and the devil calling people to to towards something evil May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. And so when someone is on the receiving end of any kind of injustice, and insult, emotional abuse, whatever it may be, the first reaction was, was it was random I of course, there are ways of dealing with every situation, but it must begin with solid now with these people in particular non Muslims, insulting

00:59:32 --> 01:00:00

Muslims, non Muslims attacking the prophets lesson verbally and the Companions as well. Allah subhanaw taala saying Be patient, so don't respond to them like they are responding to you. Don't deal with them like they are dealing with you respond with grace, respond to something better. And so the first thing you take is the perseverance and the second thing is the emphasis. Second half of this is well 100 or 100 on Jimena and many Muslims in Dawa and generally volunteers and generally young Muslims as well may struggle with this 100

01:00:00 --> 01:00:37

100 on jameelah that when they are trying to stay away from certain people or forsake them, they are doing so in a very disgusting way in a very low way in a very immature way May Allah protect us, while Jordan forsake them had your own jameelah with a forsaking that is a gracious because you are a Muslim, they are not your teachers meaning don't go to Don't stoop to their level when they when they become immature when they insult you a certain way when they lie about you gossip about you Don't stoop to their level to get back at them to feel like oh I fulfilled my ego that's what the shape on wants. Know your level and the one who teaches you comes from where? From Allah and His

01:00:37 --> 01:01:17

messengers from ally send them so when you're 100 on Jamila, you are not talking here about a random conversation. We are talking here about someone opposing Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as they are insulting and attacking, he's being told what to be patient while you're on Hajj Ron Jamila. Elsewhere in the Quran was Samba one jameelah be patient with a patient's that is beautiful when you're 100 on Jamila leave them abandoned and walk away from them without their level without being immature, had your own Jamia with a very beautiful etiquette with grace and class because you are a believer, and your character comes from the Prophet SAW Selim, who was taught and trained by a

01:01:17 --> 01:01:57

loss of Hannah Witter. Even the action of cutting someone else off here like those who are insulting and attacking shouldn't be done so graciously. And the Quran teaches Allah subhanaw taala teaches us not to fight fire with fire, not to fight disrespect with disrespect not to to to respond to injustice with another injustice or to evil with another evil with a wrong turn to another one. May Allah protect us infallibility here, right? Allah subhana tells us Repel evil with that which is better that which is best in fact, now for the believer, even even with an enemy of Islam, even with an opposition was attacking them and their families and their loved ones. We're being told here that

01:01:57 --> 01:02:34

there's an etiquette to how you cut off. If you think about this type of solder the willpower you need, as a young or old Muslim men and women all around the world. We think about solder mentioned locker and perseverance in many contexts. Solder is not just patients, because that's a very honestly weak translation. And I think some of you may see, and you have heard that this is the word that's been utilized everywhere. No. So that is very limited patience, sorry is very limited slobber is multi layered. It has many meanings. So in one context, somebody means willpower or restraint holding back What are you holding back from submit in other cases to push yourself to do something

01:02:34 --> 01:03:09

willpower to do something so so that you can take a number one other poor acts of worship, more standard reliability? So you're you're having perseverance, willpower, restraint against your laziness, you're getting out of bed and praying fajr prayer on time. So there and in Marcia, you have a patience or perseverance or willpower to stay away from sinfulness. You're about to commit that sin and this time so you know what, I'm stronger than that. I'm stronger than my desires. I'm stronger than the whisper the sheet on the trick of this bad friend, the peer pressure of these people I'm stronger than that in the home and yet why yes, they're the one who has got consciousness

01:03:09 --> 01:03:27

and they restrain themselves. And there's also subid when it comes to decree of Allah calamities difficulties was Mirada, Maya Julio right here, be patient, be patient in terms of your capacity with other people. Be patient. Sometimes Muslims stoop to the levels of other people online

01:03:28 --> 01:04:04

and in person unfortunately, someone says something insulting so they insult them back someone says something bad about Stan so they stoop to their level they start cussing up is that really is that really your level your standard that you're taking their their character and responding to them with the same exact character? Or do you have someone greater teaching you have a greater standard to follow? The the also the the example of the Prophet sallallahu Newson? Verse number 11. Whether only one will can be mean or only nominate one lucky nobody that leave me Leave me to those who basically insult you with lies. Those who shout their lies without anyone will can they be not only now mighty

01:04:04 --> 01:04:42

on the human body that there was possessed of bounties and respite them a while, basically. In other words, Leave them to me, I will take care of them for you. The Prophet slicin is constantly reminded. This is the training that you need social re formation. Remember we started with profit Neuheisel up to sorta no profit, no headaches and what did he 950 years and patients 950 years of giving down 950 years of social re formation of taking insults and attacks and abuse profit no honey Salam handler for 950 years. Why you know that in the end you're leaving their situation. Their final judgment to Allah subhana wa Tada the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salam was never known to be

01:04:42 --> 01:04:43

someone of that character.

01:04:44 --> 01:04:46

Generally speaking, when people are talking

01:04:48 --> 01:04:59

let's say about a Tesco recommendation do you know so and so for businesses for marriage people call all the time do you know so and so? Is he writes his house his characters, the printer machine, people ask about each other why? One

01:05:00 --> 01:05:37

Other things that they want to know about is the character. The manners mannerisms are extremely important. And when you think of the concept of manners here in a small village where people all know each other living amongst one another for decades, all knowing their families and in this case, the tribes that knew each other Prophet Muhammad, Salah, Lohani sunnah even before way before profit or before Yeah, even Muslim and before Quran, he was known as a person of noble character, his manners were of the highest standard, even before he received revelation. So his fifth row was basically intact. In other words, natural disposition to be someone of great etiquette, and nobody

01:05:37 --> 01:06:13

can ever lie about that nobody can say yes, this person is an evil advocate. This person is abusive, no profit slice. I've never hit anyone the prophets I've never hit any of the spouses or any of the children, the prophets, Allah said there was no to be very kind. The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam was, was not to be very respectful and you spoke to him, even to his enemies. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam had an etiquette and after revelation, of course, this this, this is something that became a teaching a model for other people to follow. So Allah subhanaw taala, made this instruction part of the Quran. And the reason for that is that the foolish people can know here,

01:06:13 --> 01:06:49

that we being quiet or not responding to someone's abusive remarks or insults about Islam. That's not a sign of weakness. Rather, this is the way of the noble people this is the way of the Prophets and Messengers. This is the command of God. This is the command of Allah. So this is a reminder for people who don't know the the etiquette of Islam, that just because we're quiet doesn't mean that we don't have a response for you or that doesn't mean that we need to respond to you. Sometimes being silent is better than speaking sometimes being silence is loud enough as it is that I'm leaving you now, after all of this conversation after all of this and you're rejecting the truth and attacking

01:06:49 --> 01:07:31

Islam. I'm leaving you to Allah subhanho wa Taala I cannot change your heart, I cannot stop you from doing what you're doing. I can leave your affairs to Allah subhanaw taala He will take care of those who deny so they are being reminded here those who deny the message are being threatened actually, by Allah subhanaw taala. So the next three verses are all about that 1213 and 14 all as a reminder, any threat, a warning to those who are ignoring the Prophet salallahu Salam or the message of Islam even today, in year 2021, those who attack in salt ignore and so on and so forth. They are the ones who are being reminded 1213 and 14 in Alladhina and Kerlan Wajima surely with us, meaning for in the

01:07:31 --> 01:08:15

hereafter our fetters, chains and a severe heat or Hema that is referring to the hellfire and Carla refers to shackles or feathers or chains. And color was also referred to the chains that would bind sometimes the animals so they are being reminded here that they are going to be punished with with ankola in a severe place in a place of severe heat. While I'm under Losartan rather than Lima verse 13 food that chokes them and a painful punishment. These are people who try to choke the profit size and try to kill the profit size and try to stab and persecute and insult later on led to of course ethnic cleansing genocides, in many places, genocides even today, do you think that these people are

01:08:15 --> 01:08:49

getting away with their evils? Do you think that they simply die and disappear? No, of course, the one who recognizes that recognizes that there's good and evil, the one who recognizes morality, the person who wants social reformulation knows that there's a duty to that command, there's a virtue to being a virtuous and so when you are being virtuous, it's because you recognize that there's something good about it inherently, and out of love for Allah, you are doing so. And for these people who attack who * who kill who steal all of that against Islam and the Muslims and innocent people. Allah is reminding them that there is a punishment for them. The reminder here severe Yes,

01:08:49 --> 01:09:22

it is very explicit. Why? So that they can reflect so they can see this is not a joke, there's not a minor thing, that the punishment really is severe so that they turn away from that lifestyle today. Not everyone will need a reminder about hellfire, like some of these individuals, meaning for some people, the reminder of just death, the reminder of meeting Allah is enough to motivate them. For other people, they are so far away. They are so far away from the Mercy of Allah in terms of their actions and their arrogance that they need a more explicit reminder to awaken their hearts and everyone has their own journey. When you get to a position where Iman fluctuates, it rises and falls

01:09:22 --> 01:09:48

and you find yourself desensitized to sin you find yourself basically far from ALLAH SubhanA wa. Turn back to the things that awaken your heart may Allah protect us. Verse 14, Yama Tojo, follow one Jeeva and work on a Digi by Luca thema Heda upon that Day when the earth and the mountains will shake and the mountains will become a heap of crumbling sand. I want us for a moment to reflect on mountains. Has anyone here ever climbed a mountain? Anybody here hike the mountain?

01:09:49 --> 01:09:54

Oh, I'll give you an example. So in Banff National Park in Canada,

01:09:55 --> 01:09:59

we had I think a few hours before a lecture this was for them.

01:10:00 --> 01:10:35

I wonder if seminar we had a few hours before the next commitment. So we went hiking, they said, you know, like, we want to take you an hour west and we'll hike a mountain. So how long will it take just so I have like some idea of the time, they said, so about an hour and a half. So that's a good amount of time. We went and it was one of the most beautiful experiences and as you climb for any of you have trekked before or hiked mountains, you know that with a higher altitude, your breath basically feels like it's shorter, and you can barely breathe at some point for some people, especially if you're running and there's less oxygen. So it took us about an hour and a half and we

01:10:35 --> 01:11:11

climbed it was one of the most beautiful climbs. When you're up there, you're looking at all these mountain ranges, you're thinking Subhanallah human beings are so fragile, like so little so weeks of * just in the face of something like one mountain, just one mountain. And when you think about this iron right here, you'll Matobo juphal Oldowan Jeevan the day that the earth in the mountains upon it will quick what Colonel tinggi Bernal Kathina Mahira The Mountains will become a heap of crumbling sand, meaning what they will disappear destroyed. Like there was nothing there. There are not going to be valleys or hills. There's no up or down no inclination, no rise or fall, everything

01:11:11 --> 01:11:51

flattened out on that day. And Allah subhana reminds us about this in many places in the Quran so that the human being becomes humble. That mountain you climbed in 2021 And subhanAllah people have made like a tourist industry out of climbing mountains and posting on social media. May Allah protect us all from any kind of superficial goals. We're talking here about something as severe as significant and mighty and magnificent as a mountain or mountain range completely crumbled completely gone. Whereas Luna Canyon Jima and for Julio and seIf who have not been asked by other Hawaiians have suffer later. Have you ever wondered, when you think of these verses from solid PLA,

01:11:51 --> 01:12:27

Allah subhanaw taala says they asked you about the mountains respond back to them, my Lord will indeed scatter them and blast them as particles of dust me there will be nothing, he shall cause them to be leveled as a smooth plane, you will see nothing there in that is crooked or curved. In other words, even the mountains will be wiped away on that day. So what about the small, tiny physically the human being? So take heed, this is the section here as a reminder for them. And then verses 15 to 19. This next passage, these four I add together in our center in a common law school and Shahina they can come out on Sunday, you know if you're on rasuna. So in this next passage, I

01:12:27 --> 01:13:05

want you to think about this for a moment. You're being reminded of a nation of the past. Now we all have heard many times, I believe, the story of Musa infidel, the story of Prophet Musa Moses, we've heard it many times, the people of Quraysh were denying Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and they were persecuting him and the Muslims, like many people today are persecuting Muslims. And it's not always the case throughout history. But this is our situation today. They were being reminded about the people of Iran, and how Fidel had way more wealth and power than them. And we have surely sent a messenger to you or people of courage or Meccans as a witness upon you Shahidan Alikum. As we sent

01:13:05 --> 01:13:43

to fill out a messenger, this is Prophet Musa Ali Salam, what happened, verse 16, for us all if you don't know rasool Allah who has been one year round disobey the messenger, the entire story of museflower. What's happening here? What do you notice about this? It's summarized, it's summarized in three words for our sore throat and also, it's summarized in three words that are hot now after the webinar. Now elsewhere in the Quran later on as well. You have a lot of details. The most reference story and prophets in the Quran is Prophet Musa alayhis salam, more than 130 times in the Quran, Prophet Muhammad SAW ISIL and binding as mentioned explicitly, just five times once as four

01:13:43 --> 01:14:28

times as Mohamed Salah Lysander so all of the details of the story of Musa the salam summarized with just this one I have I also have it on the wall so that I have no idea why Mila so we took him with a very severe punishment so this is a regarding fit around he was taken so fit around was known to be not just someone of someone who had like authority it's not just some random like a governor or king even throughout history that I was known to be someone who had a lot of military might a lot of power in terms of the worldly sense. So the eyes of human beings the the worldly definition, it looked like and it looks like from from a human perspective, it might look like Musa Allison is this

01:14:28 --> 01:14:59

obeying fit around it looks like Lusa SLM is going against the ruler who is phenom, but from a spiritual perspective if you are to define things accurately from a spiritual, theological, philosophical perspective and ethical moral perspective. It was fit around who disobeyed Musa the Center for ASA firaga rasuna. Make sure you are thinking about the framework here and how we think about the world today that are underrepresented. What an ancient and mighty kingdom for many, many generations with a long history behind it.

01:15:00 --> 01:15:42

A lot of pride in its learning and science art organization power and of course, enslaving other people. Musa alayhis salam was leading a small group of people they were affected the most many of them were a weak collectors of wood people who brought water people who are let's see in terms of the Western in terms of the the modern understanding of systems, they were the lower class, they were following the truth they follow on accepting the message of Prophet Musa Islam. However, the might of Allah subhanaw taala was with them. It was behind them it was surrounding them. They were the ones who were at the coast of the Sea and behind them as an enemy that was coming to kill them

01:15:42 --> 01:16:24

and enemy that had generations of power that had a mighty worldly civilization. So from a worldly perspective, they looked like this was a mighty ruler taking care of a group of rebels. And yet the reality is the might and power of Allah was with those who are upon the truth. And what happened, as as you know the story Mousavi Mousavi salaam, reminded his people color in a very obese God, My Lord is with me, he is with us basically will guide me we need the next step will be made clear to us. And of course, he was commanded to hit the water the splitting of the sea took place. They walk through it. Now imagine, imagine the arrogance of someone like frown, and even his minions of the

01:16:24 --> 01:17:08

soldiers. They see. They see a body of water splitting before them. They witnessed a miracle. How much arrogance must a person have to still pursue these innocent people this messenger this prophet and try to kill them? Yeah, Allah Think of how much arrogance and pride it takes to ignore that empirical sign you're asking for. So as I said, I don't I don't know almost, he disobeyed Musa. It was not Musa who disobeyed for all from an ethical, moral, spiritual perspective. The one who disobeyed was Fidel. And he as a result was taken by Allah subhanaw taala. So regardless of his worldly might, his military strength, his economic strength, everything he had, what happened to it,

01:17:09 --> 01:17:51

what became of the wisdom and the power and the armies of philology even further on himself, what happened to them completely wiped out. Fossil fuels, almost all brothers and sisters, when we look at the world, and we study geopolitics, and society and psychology and civilizations and history, it's important to remember that you don't determine the truth based on who has more money, who has a nicer car, who has a better degree, who is in a certain position in society, even amongst Muslims, you don't promote people to certain positions, or make someone a certain thing in your community or an organization because he or she has more power, or authority or money or degrees. That's not how

01:17:51 --> 01:18:27

you determine truth. The truth is always determined in terms of what Allah subhanaw taala revealed to us in terms of the framework and methodology that we have, and the might of Allah subhanaw taala is with that truth, even if they are a small group of people, even if it has Muslims that others look down upon, even if it is generally speaking just the entire Muslim Ummah, the sight of truth, the sight of justice is where the mighty of Allah subhanaw taala is, so the might of Allah was with Musa Salaam and his few followers, and this helped him to overcome the entire civilization of Fira and he was drowned because of his disobedience towards the messenger and towards Allah subhanaw

01:18:27 --> 01:19:05

taala and that lesson was taught, and yet our people learning from these lessons are people learning in terms of their perspective and what is first world what is truly first world. Is it people who are enlightened by Allah subhanaw taala spiritually, or is it people who have more money, people have more power people have more military? What is it that determines a first world nation state a first world civilization for Keifa takuna inconvertible Mio, Maya, jungle wilderness Shiva. And of course, of course, obvious disclaimer. I'm not saying here that as Muslims, we should not aim for a worldly success. No, on the contrary, Muslims should be the most advanced of civilizations as we

01:19:05 --> 01:19:40

work from 750 to 258. But rather what I'm saying is that that's not the determining measurement or factor of where you stand upon truth or with Allah. Because Allah had all of that and that ended up being what actually the the fitna the tests that he had, that he felt he became arrogant he disobeyed. Allah disobeyed the messenger, he was wiped out. But of course as Muslims we are encouraging Muslims, not only to be connected to Allah spiritually, but also to seek to seek His pleasure through the worldly advancements, the social advancements for the sake of benefiting mankind as well for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala number 17. For caverta tahona inconvertible

01:19:40 --> 01:19:59

Nehemiah joggle wilderness Shiva, how will you save yourself if you disbelieved on a day that will turn even children will turn children into white haired adults, meaning they will become old and stressed out with the fear of that day? What is it that causes a child to skip school?

01:20:00 --> 01:20:36

apps to, to to jump from being a child, a young child. And and skipping all of these models and all of these steps in terms of life in terms of time, you should just like fast forward on this child's life and automatically their old as for the believers, and then what we know and what did Allah subhanaw taala say about them for whom in furthering Yama, Eden, they are safe from all of the fears and stress of that they laugh at him while at home. Yes, and if you don't want to stress on that day, on the Day of Judgment, then do what you're supposed to do here. If you don't want to stress on that day and go through the difficulties and hardships of that day, then you're going to have to put

01:20:36 --> 01:21:13

in the effort to train yourself and condition yourself for the hardships of this life, meaning the efforts of this life, the slavery of this life for the sake of Allah, so that on that day, you are completely safe, you are smiling, you are relaxing in the shade of the Throne of Allah, you are not worrying about your state, you are not worrying about what will happen next. And the reality here is they are being reminded and humans are being reminded. If you are if already you deny, and this obey Allah in this life of probation, then how can you stand up to Allah subhanaw taala on the day of judgment that they have a terrible reality. This is a day in which again the world and the world

01:21:13 --> 01:21:49

will be different, the Earth will shake, the moments will be crumbled, a child will become like an adult meaning they will stress out and fear immediately meaning symbolically here, that even children because of the fear of that they it's as though now they are adults, they've skipped all the levels all the steps of life and time and so on and so forth. They are reminded here of all the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala upon them, and for them to to know their true purpose is to follow it for them to recognize truth is to follow it. But they reject it and they reject the Prophet they reject every sign they reject every message the Prophet SAW I said them as a witness against his own

01:21:49 --> 01:22:27

people. And this is actually a verse that made him cry mentioned in an authentic hadith verse 41 of Surah Nisa they keep her energy and I'm equally Almighty Misha II wodgina Because Allah Allah issue here Prophet sunlighten have totally been Mr. O to recite the Quran, and even mustard was surprised. Should I recite to the one it was revealed upon me two years? Well, I mean, I feel like embarrassed awkward I can't be reciting to you. The Prophets the lesson and said I like to hear others reciting. So I'm the lovingness neutral, the long run recited from the beginning of Surah, Nisa, and he reached i a 41. And when he reached this idea, he saw the profit slice and I'm crying. And he said,

01:22:27 --> 01:23:03

stop the profit slice and was crying Why? They cleaver either equally Almighty Misha here, because Allah will show you, how will it be when we bring from every nation, every meaning nation that was given a messenger, a witness, and we are going to bring you as a witness over these people. The prophets lie Selim, his heart is so soft, he wants people to accept the truth. He wants all people to become Muslim. He wants people to be saved. And yet they themselves what are they doing? They're insulting him attacking him. What are they doing? They are basically insulting the one who is who is loving them and loving their own salvation. They are insulting the one and they are mistreating the

01:23:03 --> 01:23:09

one they are persecuting and harassing the one who's trying to bring them to safety and salvation. Yeah, Allah.

01:23:10 --> 01:23:41

Now, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this here and reminds people that they should be aware that by denying this messenger here, you're going to be like the people of Iran and the earlier nations learn from history. Learn from history, learn from history, and as Muslims. We have today the 21st century, we have the greatest responsibility when it comes to studying history. Why? Why do you have the greatest responsibility when it comes to studying history? Why do we have the greatest responsibility when it comes to studying history? What's the reason?

01:23:42 --> 01:24:18

It's because we have the greatest quantity, the greatest amount of history to study, meaning what everything of history is behind us. So you have more information, more stories, more incidents to study from. And so generally speaking, when we say we have more to study from we are required to put in the effort, we are required to put in the effort to actually apply these lessons today. Learn from the mistakes of the people before you and you will find yourself progressing. And this is part of social reformulation. This is part of being someone who truly knows how to change the world for the better meaning your own time and place your own efforts. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us.

01:24:19 --> 01:24:56

Now on that day, of course, the believers will be safe, may I was Patternmakers for months and people will be running from each other. But the believers will be close to those who had tough all the close. And if you don't want to be running on that day, that one towards the loss of data in this life. Strive in this life, train yourself in this life at a center on funding on Vica while doing my phone on that day, the heavens the sky is basically it becomes very heavy and it's rent asunder with it. And his promise must is promised in terms of its actual fulfilled must be accomplished kind of while we move forward. I mean, it will happen. So when we think of what this

01:24:56 --> 01:24:59

idea is talking about, I want you to think about the

01:25:00 --> 01:25:33

The the DUA that you make. When you're praying to Allah you believe you have to accept it. You're supposed to believe it's accepted because the Promise of Allah is true. It can be accepted obviously in many different forms. Tonight when you make dua, and every night and morning when you make dua, believe in that dua believe that it's accepted the same way you would last night of Ramadan. Ramadan is around the corner here last parting ranters life till then Alana me the same way you would on a day Ivanova, the same way you would between Adam and karma, when you're breaking your fast when you go through oppression when you go through calamity. Make dua to Allah doing his promise will always

01:25:33 --> 01:25:42

be fulfilled and on that day it will be fulfilled as well. There is no other way around it. It's inevitable. Verse 19, in the Hadith that this is indeed a reminder.

01:25:44 --> 01:26:04

Feminine shall I tell her that you know, don't be Sabina so let him who will take away to his Lord me, basically the one who wants seek a path towards Allah, the One who wants success, work towards that path, meaning the path of Allah subhanaw taala how many reminders do we have every single day, reminders of ALLAH, so I would say limitless countless why.

01:26:05 --> 01:26:42

Because the one who knows what a sign is what a reminder is a vicar. A reminder from Allah subhanaw taala or attend Kira, rather, recognize that that sign is all around like your own, for example, for you to be aware that you're breathing, for you to walk for you to sit for you to turn on the lights in your room for you to log into your computer, every everything you type on your laptop, everything you're doing depends on how you are perceiving it, the more you think of everything around you as a sign of a loss of heart and in some way, the more you reference Allah subhanaw taala connect everything to him, even your relationships, your spouse, your parents, your siblings, even the books

01:26:42 --> 01:27:19

that you're reading the articles you're reading the studies that you have the assignments that you have, the job that you work, everything can be connected back to Allah in some way. And so when you try to connect everything back to Allah subhanaw taala, you automatically will increase the number of things that will benefit you on a daily basis. And so yes, there are levels of reminders here. The Quran is the greatest reminder in the Hadith. You know, this is a reminder from Allah, who needs the reminder, we're all in need. This is the one who created us, Allah subhanaw taala is giving us this this line right here to suffice. The entire Quran is attached to everything of the Quran.

01:27:19 --> 01:27:56

That's why one of the names of the Quran is and declare that which reminds people and that which is a remembrance of Allah subhanho wa taala. And so how many of the signs do you take when you're on social media? Some people love social media, and they're just like, scrolling mindlessly through it. Like they are just like flying through through social media. And the point here is when you're connected to these reminders, or sorry, when you're exposed to these reminders, are you connected? Are you taking that reminder, Someone should tell that, you know, obviously, that's your freewill. That's the decision you have to make every single day. We also had to make us amongst the people who

01:27:56 --> 01:28:16

see these reminders and accept them and act upon them along the mean so that we are truly conditioning ourselves and changing the world for the better. Let's take the last and final area of the surah Yes, this is no longer I in number 20 until the end of the solar balaclava. So, this long i i want to give you some context about it.

01:28:17 --> 01:28:58

In this long as you have some references, for example to Zika and this is why some scholars say based on the authority of Hardy shallowly Lohana, so reporting from IHL no longer that this last idea was revealed a year later, one year after the first 19 ayat of surah, Muzammil you are trained for one year by Allah subhanaw taala some people sign up for like 90 day programs, one month programs 30 day running 20 days water this 20 days that Allah subhanaw taala gave the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and the early companions training in terms of this particular word and this particular obligation for one year that they prayed Clea, Molina it was wajib upon. And then this

01:28:58 --> 01:29:18

last I was revealed and this basically light in the situation. Now, there's one Hadith that mentions it was one year. And of course, I do have to mention this there is another report that indicates it might have been 10 years later, Allah Subhana Allah knows best. Some scholars say it's possible. It's possible that it was actually the second report Why

01:29:19 --> 01:29:58

10 years later, because 10 years later was in Medina, and this article references Zika and if it references a Kazakh, it was not revealed in Mecca. For those who remember from the secret was revealed in Medina. So perhaps this idea came down 10 years later, for 10 years praying to Mali. Can you imagine if we were able to live, believing it was worship to practically emulate every single way to get up and pray? And I mean, like not just like half the night, or a little less than that, let's say two hours every single night minimum two hours, every single night for 10 years of gambling. What kind of spiritual revolution takes place in the heart and in the in the lives of

01:29:58 --> 01:29:59

people around you? But of course
