00:00:02--> 00:00:46

lacell below unto aloo hukam cable and machinery, Walmart a righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west. righteousness is not that you just fixed yourself in a particular direction, that you hold on to just one thing, considering only one thing to be good, and you spend your entire life doing only that one good thing. No righteousness is more than that. What is righteousness? True righteousness is in one who believes in Allah, the last day, the angels, the book, and the prophets and gives Well, in spite of love for it, he loves it. Still, he gives it to others, to relatives, to orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask for help, and also for

00:00:46--> 00:00:50

freeing slaves, and those who established prayer and gives

00:00:51--> 00:01:35

those who fulfill the promise when they make a promise, and those who are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous. What do we understand from this, that righteousness is not that we adopt one good deed and just remain upon it, while ignoring everything else? No, we do what we have to do. But then there are other avenues of doing good too, as well, and they should not be ignored. We should be in search of what is necessary to be done right now that in this present moment, what is the best thing that I can do? What is the good thing that I can do right now. So for example, all year round we can

00:01:35--> 00:02:12

give in charity. But when it comes to the month of Ramadan, what is the best form of charity, giving food to the person who's fasting so that he can break his past that is one of the best forms of charity, all year round and hamdulillah we recite the Quran, we remember Allah, but what is necessary at this time that as a month of Ramadan is approaching, and we will be spending many hours in the recitation of the book of Allah be listening to the Quran in Kenya, in a way that we also remind ourselves of what is in the book of Allah, that its messages, those messages, we have forgotten the reminders that we have forgotten, we refresh those messages, we refresh those

00:02:12--> 00:02:51

reminders, so that we can truly benefit from the better that is upcoming. So righteousnesses what that a person sees what is needed of me right now. What can I do right now? what is best for me now today in this situation? Because sometimes we think, yeah, I pray five prayers. And I also wear the hijab and sometimes they give charity, I'm good. I don't need to review the Quran. I don't need to give a lot of charity. I don't need to pray extra prayers. I don't need to recite the Quran. I don't need to memorize the Quran. This is something that we think that just because I've put the hijab on, I am perfect. No righteousness is not that we fix ourselves and just one particular direction. No

00:02:51--> 00:03:31

righteousness is that we keep looking around, what more can I do? what is best for me right now, what does the current situation demand from me? Which is why we see that in this ayah even spending as mentioned, yeah, you have Latina Amano, or you will have believed prescribed for you is legal retribution. casaus. For who for those who have been murdered. And what is besides that when a person has killed someone, when a person has no respect for human life, then his life is not spared either than he is punished. And how was he punished that he is killed in return and have a little bit of hope, the free for the free, the slave for the slave and the female for the female, meaning

00:03:31--> 00:04:09

the killer will be killed not someone else in his place. But whoever overlooks from his brother anything meaning whoever forgives the party, the murder, then there should be a suitable follow up and payment to him with good conduct meaning then the blood money can be paid. This is an alleviation from your Lord and mercy. But whoever transgressors after that will have a painful punishment. And there's for you in legal retribution, saving of life, meaning all believers, when you practice the sauce, then what are you preserving human life? Are you people of understanding? Yeah, only Alba, that you may become righteous quotevalet come prescribed for you, when death

00:04:09--> 00:04:51

approaches any one of you that if he leaves wealth, what should he do, then he should make a bequest he should make a will. This was when there was no law concerning inheritance. Now, Allah subhanaw taala has a lot of the share of the heirs into the Messiah and when we read through them to say inshallah, we will read about the shares of inheritance, but for non IRS, then a person may leave something for them, he may allot a share of his property for them. So if there's any cause that is important to us, if there's any cause that is important to us, then we must ensure that we allot a portion of our wealth for that cause, so that when we die, that portion of our property goes in

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

support of that cause and what's the maximum It is only a third of our total wealth. So in total

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

Hang on, if he's leaving behind wealth, then he should Alessia he should make the will literally day in will be in Bill Maher who for the parents in the near relatives according to what is acceptable, and this is a duty upon the righteous, then whoever alters the bequest after he has heard it, the sun is only upon those who have altered it. Indeed, Allah is hearing and knowing. But if one fears from the bequeath there's some error or sin, and corrects that, which is between them, there is no sin upon him, meaning if a person who died, he left behind a wheel that was unjust, so for example, he said, Give all of my money to my son, whereas he's leaving behind two daughters also, he's

00:05:38--> 00:06:22

leaving behind his other relatives also, who do have a share in his property, then what happens? The whale must be changed, it should be altered. Allah says there's no harm, if the will has to be altered because of this reason. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving, and merciful. Yeah, you have Latina amanu, or you who have believed quotevalet colloseum, decreed upon you as fasting, as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous. When we're fasting, what do we leave halaal halaal, food halaal drink halaal relationship we leave it. And so for the rest of our lives, what is it that we need to leave, how long whether it is how long in and of itself, or how long in the way

00:06:22--> 00:07:03

that we have acquired it, fasting, Allah says it is for a Yama martlew that it is for a limited number of days, it's not forever, it's just one month, one month, either 29 or 30 days. So whoever among you is ill, or on a journey during these days, then an equal number of days are to be made up afterwards. Meaning if in Ramadan, a person is traveling, and so he's not able to fast due to the hardship of travel, or you become sick, he's not able to fast because of the hardship of a sickness, then what can he do? He can make up those fasts later on in the year he must make them up and upon those who are able to fast but with hardship around some a substitute of feeding a poor person, the

00:07:03--> 00:07:42

video, how much video each day, how much feeding one poor person, meaning those people who find extreme difficulty in fasting. So for example, a nursing mother, a pregnant woman, a sick person, or a person who is extremely old, then they may leave their fasts. But what do we learn they have to make them up later. However, if the condition is permanent, and there is no hope of recovery, so for example, the person is suffering from a terminal illness or person has become extremely aged. And because of that, they're not able to fast, then in that case, again, failure must be given. Failure must be given and this awareness must be spread amongst people, because this is the hock of Allah,

00:07:42--> 00:08:24

this is fun. And whoever volunteers excess, whoever does extra good, then it is better for him. But too fast is better for you until Sumo hietala calm, if you fast that is better for you, if you only new meaning, don't worry from before that the fast will be very long, I will get too tired. Perhaps I should think about leaving some fast here and there. No, don't think about that. Why? Because fasting, Allah says it is better for you. So don't think that you will get dehydrated, don't get worried about getting tired. Why? Because it is better to fast. When you will fast Allah will give you the strength. And remember that fasting and not fasting is not the same. Fasting in a month of

00:08:24--> 00:09:08

Ramadan and not fasting in the month of Ramadan. They're not equal. Likewise, if a person is fasting, then that is not equal to the person who is not fasting and giving Fabian mean giving fadia will make up for the obligation. But will it bring the benefits that fasting brings to a person no fasting? What does that develop taqwa? And when a person gives video? Does that bring the same kind of support that fasting brings? No So Allah says we're under Sumo heinola come if you fast that is better for you If you only knew, so, do not think about leaving your fasts for petty reasons for small reasons. Don't come up with little excuses that oh today I didn't wake up for so who so

00:09:08--> 00:09:56

perhaps I should leave my fast or today my school is going to Wonderland so perhaps I should not first know whether it is exam or work or children whatever it is, try your best fast because fasting isn't obligation. Shadow Ramadan and lady on syrupy Hill for the month of Ramadan is that in which the Quran was revealed and what is the Quran? a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. This is why it is necessary that in Ramadan, we spend most of our time with what with the book of Allah with the Quran? Because remember, Ramadan is important why? Because of Quran. So what kind of Ramadan would it be if we're not spending our time with the Quran if we're not spending

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

our time in the recitation of the Quran in surah of the Quran.

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

reciting Quran, what kind of Ramadan would that be? Ramadan is important because of Quran. So whoever cites the new moon of the month, then let him fast it and whoever is ill or in a journey than an equal number of other days, a lot intense for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and wants for you to complete the period. So the main thing is that we complete the number of fasts that whatever has been left must be completed later on. So make the intention and begin the journey. Even if it's 200 fasts that you have to make up, make the intention and start the journey and to glorify Allah for that to which he has guided you, and perhaps you will be grateful. Fasting is

00:10:38--> 00:11:23

obligated, why so that we become grateful, we value the blessings that Allah has given to us. We learn gratitude. Allahumma Jimena shackling, because, you see when we're fasting, and we leave our food and drink for a few hours, then what happens, we begin to appreciate that little food, we begin to appreciate a simple thing like water even otherwise, what happens we have food and various drinks before us but we become very picky. Fasting teaches us to be grateful for even the little and the simple food that we may have. What either sir Allah kyriba Dr. Niva inequality, and when my servants asked you concerning me, than indeed I am, believe I am near, would you boo darwaza Derrida, Darren,

00:11:24--> 00:12:16

I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon me, whenever Allah servant calls upon Allah, wherever Allah servant calls upon Allah, in the middle of the night or in the day, in private or in public in grief or enjoy. Then what happens? Allah, He does not just hear the call, but he also responds to the call, oh gee boo, I respond. He hears our call and he responds to it. So what should we do failure study bully, so let them respond to me also. Think about it. If Allah responds to us, should we not respond to him? When he calls us? When we call Allah, we want that our prayers are answered, when Allah calls us when he calls us to his obedience, then what should we do?

00:12:16--> 00:12:56

We should also respond with obedience especially when Allah says yeah, are you Han Latina? amanu Then what should our response be your A B? Yes, I will do it Sameera. Now what Alterna folio study bullied while you may know me, they should believe in me, they should have faith in me that I will respond to them narla homeodomain so that they may be rightly guided, because how is it that we find guidance in our lives through our doors, that whenever we are stuck whenever we are in indecision, whenever we don't know whether to go right or to go left? How do we make the decision call upon Allah asked him for help and have faith in him and take the leap. Take the step forward, Allah will

00:12:56--> 00:13:37

guide the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh people be merciful to yourself, meaning when you're making the law, you don't need to make it very loud. Be merciful to yourselves, for you are not calling a deaf or one who is absent. Rather you're calling upon the one who is with you. He is all here he is the ever near the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said call upon Allah while being certain of being answered when you make the RP certain that Allah will answer. Have faith, have trust Allah will answer don't make the R with doubt. Don't make Dora with this Chuck that perhaps Allah will ignore my door. No have faith make doll with conviction or hidden acoem it has been made

00:13:37--> 00:14:18

permissible for you the night proceeding fasting to go to your wives for what for sexual relations, because during the fast during the daylight hours, this is something that is not allowed their clothing for you and your clothing for them. The husband is the best for his wife and the wife isn't the best for her husband. Why are the husband and wife called clothing for each other? Because clothes What do they bring us comfort, they cover our faults, they beautify us clothes are a means of Zina of adornment, protection, closeness, intimacy. sukoon. And this is how the husband and wife are meant to be. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves that you were doing this in the

00:14:18--> 00:14:52

night while you were unsure whether it was permissible or not. Because initially this habit we're not sure if this was permissible in the nights of Ramadan. So he accepted your repentance and forgive you. So now have relations with them and seek that which Allah has decreed for you and eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread of the night, meaning until the time that the fast begins, then complete the fast until the sunset and do not have relations with your wives as long as you are staying for worship in the mosques meaning during Arabic If this is something that is not permissible, these are the limits set by Allah so do not

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

approach them. Because the halaal is clear and the hallowmas clear. When Allah has made these laws clear then we must not

00:15:00--> 00:15:49

violate them. Thus does Allah make clear his ordinances to the people that they may become righteous, and do not consume one another as well unjustly or send it in bribe to the rulers in order that they might aid you to consume a portion of the wealth of the people. And if you were to do this, you would be doing this insane. While you know that it is unlawful, meaning do not offer bribes to take other people's rights. Think about it. While we're fasting. What do we leave? halaal? So after Ramadan, will we consume heroin? No, Ramadan teaches us to live within the limits of halaal. Why do we go to Hong Kong out of our love for dunya for the fulfillment of our desires and

00:15:49--> 00:16:34

desires once a person begins to pursue them, these desires become more delicate, they destroy a person, they ruin a person. Remember that a person cannot die until he eats the last morsel of food that was written for him. Whatever is written for us, we will certainly get it, we will certainly gain it. This is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, as you may do with Allah, adopt beauty in seeking what Allah has decreed for you, meaning seek it in the right way in the correct way. Don't use wrong ways to get what Allah has written for you. Yes, Allah Quran, Allah Hilah. They ask you about the new moons, because the beginning and the ending of Ramadan is marked with the siting of

00:16:34--> 00:17:14

the new moon. So we are talking here about the new moon. So they ask you about the new moons meaning about the changing form the waxing the waning moon, say they are measurements of time for the people and for Hajj. And it is not righteousness to enter houses from the back. But righteousness is in the one who fears Allah, because the machine the people of pre Islamic Arabia, they had this tradition that if they left their houses for Hajj, and they had to return to their home for something, they wouldn't go in from the door, because they would say, in hajj in the state of Iran, there should be nothing on our heads, so we cannot fast from under a doorframe. So what would they do to enter their

00:17:14--> 00:17:59

houses, they will climb over the wall. So this is being abolished over here. The superstition is basically being refuted over here, that this is not the purpose of a home. This is not righteousness, you think you're doing this while you're being so righteous? No, this is not righteousness. What happens with us also is that we forget the spirit of Riba. We fast in the month of Ramadan. But when we fast, we are more concerned about our support, and our fo our eat and our third parties. We forget the spirit of fasting fasting teaches us to control our desire. But what happens when we break our fast we unleash ourselves and we just fulfill our desire. We forget the

00:17:59--> 00:18:46

spirit. Allah says that righteousness is not to enter the houses from the back but righteousness is in the one who fears Allah. So enter houses from their doors, do the things properly, Don't beat around the bush and fear Allah, that you may be successful fight in the way of Allah, those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed, Allah does not like to transgressors. This is our Deen that prohibits us from being unfair to the enemy. Even Allah says find those who fight you but do not transgress. Meaning Do not be unfair to your enemy, even then, how can we be unfair to our friends? How can we be unfair to our children, to our husbands to our parents? This is our Deen that teaches

00:18:46--> 00:19:19

us to be fair, fair with everybody, even the one who comes to fight to you walk to loo home and kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you. The culture basically being referenced. Those people who expelled the Muslims from Mecca and who waged war against them any Muslim they found anywhere in the land, they tortured him, they abused him, they killed him. So the Muslims are told that when these people are at war with you, they don't care for your life. You also don't care for them. You have to take revenge. You have to stand up for yourself. So for that, what will you do? wherever you find them, and they come raising weapons

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

against you, then you also have to fight them back. And remember that fitna is worse than killing and do not fight them at a Masjid al Haram. Why? Because that's a sacred place until they fight you there. If they fight you in that place, then you also have to fight them back. If they fight you then kill them such as the recompense of the disbelievers. And if this is that, Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. fight them until there is no more fitna. The concept of war in our religion is what that fight go to war. Why, to eradicate fitna to eradicate facade to eradicate oppression, persecution, not to get richer, not

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

To secure more lens, not for fame, no faulty loom hatherleigh takuna fitna way akuna Dino, and until worship is acknowledged to be for Allah meaning until people have the freedom to worship Allah for a Nintendo. But if this is then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors. fighting in the sacred month is for aggression committed in the sacred month. Meaning if someone fights you in it, then you may fight them back. Otherwise, fighting in the sacred months is something that is not permissible and for all violations is legal retribution. So whoever has assaulted you, then assault him in the same way that he has assaulted you and fear Allah and know that Allah is with

00:20:39--> 00:21:22

those who fear Him. Therefore, do not violate his limits. What unfeasible feasibility, and spend in the way of Allah and do not throw yourselves with your own hands into destruction? How by refraining from spending, think about it, if a person is hungry, and he has the money, he can't afford to buy food, but he doesn't buy the food and he starves, isn't that destroying yourself, it's harming your own self. Likewise as Muslims, we all have spiritual needs, we all need this religion. And so over here we are encouraged to spend for the cause of Allah also. Because if we do not spend for the promotion of the religion, if we do not spend for the deen of Allah, then what will happen? People

00:21:22--> 00:21:28

will spiritually starve and when they will spiritually starve, they will walk with dead hearts.

00:21:29--> 00:22:09

So spend, spend, whether it is for Hajj, or it is for the promotion of the deen in any way, spend in the way of Allah and do not be stingy in spending in the way of Allah. Think about it. Sometimes we give sadaqa for what reason for our own personal gain, because I want reward, or we're in some hardship. So we give so the cause of that that hardship is removed. When some problem we give sadaqa that Allah creates is for us. These are all good. And these are all correct ways. However, who's going to benefit only we will benefit. But a Muslim, a believer is one who's not selfish. When my mom was up now me and Phil cone they spend another is also they think who else needs my money? Where

00:22:09--> 00:22:52

else can I spend? What else are the needs of my family, my community, my community needs the they need the knowledge of the Quran. So the believer also spends for the cause of Allah for the promotion of the deen and complete the hedge. What Arsenault in the law, your humble morosini Allah says do good Indeed Allah loves the doers of good meaning any good deeds that we do, how should we do it with the accent, so when it comes to fasting fast with your son, when it comes to Hajj as we will learn the following Ayah do that with your son also what Adam will have Giovanna Rome Rasul Allah and complete the hygiene aroma for his pleasure for Allah for Allah pleasure. So don't keep

00:22:52--> 00:23:32

counting how many hygiene harmonizes we have done and keep telling people? No, this is for Allah. But if you are prevented, then offer what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals and do not shave your heads until the sacrificial animal has reached its place of slaughter. And whoever among you is ill or has an ailment of the head making shaving necessary, then what should he do, he should offer a ransom of fasting three days or charity or sacrifice and when you are secure than whoever performs or modal meaning during the Hajj months followed by Hajj, then whatever he offers, that can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals, meaning and other times in times of peace a

00:23:32--> 00:24:11

person can give whatever he can easily spend, and whoever cannot find or afford such an animal than a fast of three days during Hajj and f7. When you have returned home, those are 10 complete days. This is for those whose family is not in the area of muscular and fear Allah and know that Allah is severe in penalty. So in this ayah basically we're talking about some rules concerning how to that if a person is not able to go for Hajj he started the journey but he was not able to complete the Hajj he was prevented, then what should he do? The solution is given over here, but the end of the ayah What does it teach us? Fear Allah, what the pillow why Nemo anila shadow record, you should

00:24:11--> 00:24:57

fear Allah and have this knowledge that Allah is severe in penalty. Allah is very merciful. But at the same time, he has given a certain commands that we must observe and when we don't observe them, then what are we bringing about for ourselves Allah's penalty, because he has showed even Alhaji Ashura. maluma Hodge is doing well known months, so whoever has made Hajj obligatory upon himself there in by entering the state of Iran, there has to be for him no sexual relations, and no disobedience and no disputing during Hajj. The journey of Hajj is meant to be a peaceful journey, what kind of a journey, a peaceful journey, just like when a person is fasting? How should he be

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

peaceful the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the one who was

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

First thing he must not argue he must not fight and if someone does try to argue with him What should he say in return and saw him likewise when a person goes for Hajj, he must not indulge in any kind of fighting and argumentation.

00:25:15--> 00:25:58

So there has to be for him no sexual relations and no disobedience and no disputing during Hajj. And whatever good you do, Allah knows it and take provisions but indeed the best provision is the fear of Allah. Meaning go for Hajj with the fear of Allah, take what you need with you. But the best thing that you need with you for the journey of Hajj is what the fear of Allah taqwa of Allah, why, so that you don't oppress anybody, and so that you can also perform the obligations of Hajj correctly, what the punia Allah Al Bab and fear me or you have understanding, meaning if you have reason, if your mind understands, then you better if you're a law liaison, a commissioner, there is

00:25:58--> 00:26:11

no blame upon you for seeking bounty from your Lord during Hajj. But when you depart from that, then remember Allah at unmesh idle, how long and remember him as he has guided you, what guru who can

00:26:12--> 00:26:50

remember Allah as he has guided you, meaning vehicle must be done in the right way. Which way in the way that Allah has taught? Because if we make up our own ways of remembering Allah, then what would that be? That would be an innovation and what does innovation do? It leads a person to fire what guru who come back home, what incontinent, Amina burn lien For indeed you were before that among those astray. So Murphy, illumine Hazel frbm NASS, then depart from the place from where all the people depart and ask forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

00:26:53--> 00:27:32

And when you have completed your hydrates the rituals of Hajj, then remember Allah like your previous remembrance of your father's, or with much greater remembrance. So over here, we see that prior to Islam, Hajj was more like a festival for the people, they would go for Hajj together, they would gather together, eat together, they would have poetry competitions, they would impress one another with their charities with their sacrificial animals with their generosity. They would also talk about their stories, their accomplishments, they would praise their forefathers, they would show off their grand lineage. They would say all of this, Allah subhanaw taala reminds us what the

00:27:32--> 00:28:19

purpose of Hajj is, what is that purpose? It is to remember Allah, first guru LA Galaxy come back home or shed the claw. So anytime anywhere we go for the religion of Allah for the remembrance of Allah, whether it is a conference, a mosque and Islamic site, then let's not forget Allah, let's adopt seriousness. It is not for the purpose of amusement, it is for the purpose of remembering Allah azza wa jal, but those who go to these places, seeking dunya then what happens there their eyes are also for seeking dunya and among the people is He Who says robina attina fit dunya Our Lord, give us in this world, but one Allah who fill your Ottoman holla and he will have in the

00:28:19--> 00:29:03

hereafter no share. Those who are lost in the love of this world, they ask Allah only for dunya before their eyes is the poverty of this world. They're afraid of scarcity. So their their eyes are also revolving around just the world. Allah says such people, they will have no share in the hereafter. But among them as he who says robina Tina, Fredonia, Hassan Warfield irati hacer una joaquina either but now, he says, Our Lord, give us in this world that which is good, and in the hereafter also that which is good, and protect us from the punishment of the Fire. This is one of the best doors for us. Let's check our doors. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, soon

00:29:03--> 00:29:47

there will be in my own people who will sit in the masajid in the mosques, sitting in circles, but before them is only the concern for this world, meaning that is all that they will talk about. So do not sit amongst them, even though they're doing something which is apparently righteous, but in reality, they're seeking this world, for Allah has no need of such people. And this is something that we should be afraid of. Whether we are going to the bottom, we're going to get a class anywhere. If our purpose is not allows pleasure, then the entire effort is a waste. dunia can begin anywhere. But let's not use the dean to acquire worldly benefits. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

sallam said, the hour will draw near and the people will not increase except in greed for this world, and they will not increase except in distance from their Lord. So the more a person begins to

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

Love this world, the more he distances away from his Lord, Allah ecola homeless libo mimica Sabu Allah who said he or herself, those who ask Allah for good in this world and good in the Hereafter, those will have a share of what they have earned. And Allah is swift in account. And remember Allah during specific number of days, that whoever hastens his departure in two days, there is no sin upon him, and whoever delays until the third day, there is no sin upon him. For who for the one who fears Allah. So either you can leave after two days or three days. But what is most important is that you must fear Allah, what the law what level an accumulator Sharon, and fear Allah and know that unto
