Sooner or later imraan the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, recite the two bright ones. What are the two bright ones? The two bright sutras Surah Al Baqarah and Surah Al Iran. Why? Because on the Day of Resurrection, they will come as two clouds, or two shades or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. So Alhamdulillah we conclude we read a little Baccarat. Now, let's begin. So earlier in Ron also so that we can be amongst these people
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, la Fleur meme, Allah, there is no deity except Him, the EverLiving the Sustainer of existence, he has sent down upon you the book in truth, confirming what was before it. And he revealed the Torah and the Gospel before as guidance for the people and he revealed the Koran. Indeed, those who disbelieve in the verses of Allah will have a severe punishment and Allah is Exalted in Might, the owner of retribution, indeed from Allah, nothing is hidden in the earth, nor in the heaven. It is he who forms you in the wombs However, he wills there is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might the wise, it is he who has sent down to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam the book in it are verses that are precise, they are the foundation of the book and other verses are unspecific, meaning there are verses whose meaning we cannot specify why, because Allah and His Messenger did not specify the meaning of those verses. So for example, Alif Lam Meem What does it mean? How many What is the meaning can we specify, we cannot specify why because Allah did not tell us the specific meaning, the messenger sallallahu Sallam did not tell us. So those people in whose hearts is deviation, they will follow that of it, which is unspecific. Those people whose hearts are deviated, what is it that the take from the Quran, these verses which are whose meaning
is unspecific, why seeking discord and seeking an interpretation that is suitable to them. And no one knows its true interpretation except Allah, but those Fermin knowledge, they say, and unabie he, they say we believe in it. So whenever you come across something in the Quran, that you don't understand the meaning of you don't fully understand, say I am a newbie, I believe in a TR A, B, all of it is from from our Lord, and no one will be reminded except those of understanding. They say, Robin Allah to Zico, lubaina, Bertha it had a Tana, our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us, Oh Allah, after this gift of guidance that you have given to us, do not let our
hearts deviate. Because it's so easy, so easy for a person to slip, and keeps slipping and slipping and slipping. It's so easy for a person to let go of that firm handhold and then just drop and when he drops, he falls, it's so easy to go astray. Because think about the dangers that are there in this world. First of all, there's enough, there's a constantly the nafs that is constantly calling us to disobey Allah, then there is a chiffon, then there are the people around us, then there are the temptations of this world. So the people who truly believe they value their faith, they recognize their faith as a treasure. And because they recognize it as a treasure, they want to keep
it when they want to keep it. They want it to be safe. So they ask Allah to keep it safe. Just like when you have a good car, which is in a good condition. What do you want that your car stays in good condition? When you have a piece of jewelry? A ring, for example? What do you do you wear it when you're doing dishes? You don't wear it? When you're cleaning? You don't wear it every now and then you clean it. When you're putting cream on your hands. You take that ring off, isn't it? So why? Because you're protecting it. Because you recognize its value. The people who have a man, they recognize the value of a man and they know that they cannot protect it themselves. They need Allah's
help. So they ask Allah, Oh Allah, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from yourself mercy. Indeed, you are the restore our Lord, surely you will gather the people for a day about which there is no doubt we should also think of the ACA as real, as real as we think about this day. Indeed, Allah does not fail in his promise. Indeed, those who disbelieve never will their wealth or their children avail them against a law at all. And it is they who are the fuel for the fire today. What is it that people are pursuing? What is it that they're running after
dounia but the same dounia What does Allah say it will not benefit them in the hereafter at all, what Allah ecohome will do now, and they will be the fuel of the fire. Theirs is like the custom of the people around and those before them an example from history is being given. Look at your own, look at how much wealth he had. But what happened, they denied our signs. So Allah sees them for their sins, and Allah is severe in penalty, say to those who disbelieve you will be overcome. Over here, the references to the disbelievers who came to bother fighting against the Muslims. They're being warned that just as you were defeated and bothered, in no time you will be completely overcome
satola boon you will be overcome and gathered together to hell, and wretched is the resting place. So we see that they were warned from before. Before this outcome, they were warned that if you do not seize, then this is the outcome jahannam already there has been for you assigned in the two armies which meant when asked by the one fighting in the cause of Allah and another of disbelievers. They saw them to be twice their own number by their eyesight, the disbelievers saw the Muslims to be twice their own number. But Allah supports with his victory whom He wills. Indeed, and that is a lesson for those of vision in nifi, that adicolor ibra Lin Alba saw what is that a bra? What is that
lesson that look at how Allah gradually seizes those who do wrong and makes them and they brought a lesson for others. Because sometimes what happens is, when we're doing something wrong, we think it's okay, nothing will happen. And we do it. And yes, nothing happens. And apparently, it seems like we are improving, we're going to be successful, we're going to be fine. Like for example, if a person takes how long money initially, he's hesitant, should I go sign that rebar contract or not? But then he does it anyway thinking it's okay. Unless the food over him. It's okay, doesn't matter. I'm not eating it. I'm just giving it for getting the the profits on the laws. And I'm also the one
who gave interest. So what happens when a person does it initially nothing happens. And then what happens one sin leads to another sin, which leads to another sin. One, how long contract leads to another head on contract, which leads to another one and another one and another one, so much so that a person does not even think the same to be a sinner anymore. And then what happens? Then Allah sees as the person suddenly, because Allah gave him many chances to repent. He gave him so much time to repent, but he did not he did not change his condition. So what happens? Then Allah seizes him suddenly. So we should never move from one thing to the next thinking that oh, I did it the first
time and nothing happened. So it's okay I can do it another time and nothing will happen. And law says that in fa colorable utterly absurd. There is a warning, a lesson for people who have vision for people who see. Now generally what are those things that make us disobey Allah? What are those weaknesses? It is the things of this world. beautified for people is the love of that which they desire. What is it that they desire of women and children heaped up sums of gold and silver and in particular from children's sons? It's amazing how across various cultures, different different countries. What is it that we see, when it comes to a doctor, people feel sad when it comes to a
son, people feel extremely happy.
So of women and sons heaped up sums of gold and silver, fine branded horses and cattle and tilled land, property. All these things are beloved to people. Allah says that is the enjoyment of worldly life. And these things are not of much value before Allah. Because if they had even as much value as that of a mosquito, then Allah would not give to a calf or even a sip of water. So the fact that Allah gives to those who deny Him, Allah gives to them, what does it give to them water, food, health, wealth, success, worldly success, he gives it to them, right? What does it show that this dunya is nothing before Allah. It's as unimportant as a mosquito. It's as invaluable as a mosquito.
But Allah has with him the best return. This is why we should pursue this world in moderation. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, be moderate in seeking worldly things. Be moderate, meaning don't spend excessive energy, excessive amounts of your money, of your effort and just seeking worldly things be moderate over there. What do we do the exact opposite. When it comes to the deen we say, Take it easy, be moderate, but when it comes to the deen, we say fasting the whole month.
Take a break, going pm every night, take a break, take it easy, take it easy. The prophets have a lot is an upset, be moderate in seeking worldly things. Why? Because with Allah is a better reward. And remember the one who makes his goal this dunya, then he will definitely suffer in his and the one who makes his goal after he will have to compromise he will have to let go of at least some of his dunya say, shall I inform you of something better than that better than what better than all of these things that are mentioned over here? For those who fear Allah will be gardens, what kind of gardens what kind of property that is eternal, eternally beautiful, in the presence of their Lord
near their Lord, beneath which rivers flow wherein they abide eternally, and purified spouses with them, and approval from Allah and Allah is seeing of his servants. But this is for who those who say robina in Nana, Amana, those who say, Our Lord, indeed we have believed, fall fit learner. So forgive us because we have arrived. We have made mistakes. So forgive us for Finland, no banana, walking our other banana. They say Oh Allah forgive us our sins and protect us from the punishment of the Fire. Who are these people who will be saved from the punishment of the Fire of slavery in those who are patient was saw the pain, those who are true, honest, truthful, while carnitine those
who are obedient, well known for clean and those who spend in the way of Allah while most of us have and those who seek forgiveness before dawn in the last part of the night. Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him. And so do the angels and those have knowledge that he is maintaining creation, in fairness, there is no deity except Him the Exalted in Might the wise in the dinner in the law, Hill Islam. Indeed, the religion the only religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who are given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them. Why, out of jealous animosity between themselves and whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah than Indeed
Allah swift in taking account, so if they argue with you, then say, I have submitted myself to Allah in Islam. Many times people come and argue with you, why do you have this hijab? Why are you fasting? Why are you waiting for this Quran? Why Why? What's the response as salaam to word here Lila? I have submitted myself to Allah. When you also wonder when you also think to yourself, is this really necessary? Is it even worth it? Tell yourself a slump the wedge here Lila, I am doing this while surrendering myself to who to Allah? And so have those who follow me and say to those who are given the Scripture, and to the unlearn it, have you submitted yourselves, those who criticize
as them have you submitted yourself. And if they submit in Islam, they are rightly guided, but if they turn away, then upon you is only the duty of notification, and Allah is seeing of his servants. So what is the responsibility of the diary, just informed if the other accepts or not, that is his problem. Those who disbelieve in the signs of Allah and kill the prophets without right and kill those who ordered justice from among the people give them tidings of a painful punishment, because the person who doesn't surrender to Allah, then what happens? He does not like being told to surrender to Allah and anyone who tells him to obey Allah, he becomes angry with him, even if he is
a prophet of Allah, even if he if he is a righteous person, and he becomes violent against him. So we see that there were people who killed prophets of Allah, Who killed those who ordered them good. They are the ones whose deeds have become worthless in this world and the Hereafter, and for them, there will be no helpers. Do you not consider those who were given a portion of the Scripture? All Muslims, Have you not seen their stand? People who were given a portion of the Scripture, meaning it is not necessary that those people who have been given some knowledge, then their condition, their actions, they also improve? It is not necessary that a person who has been given in he also does
amen on that he also act upon that aim, it's not necessary, because look, strange is the condition of these people who have been given a portion of the book, meaning they have some knowledge, but look at their actions, so strange. What is it that they're doing? They are invited to the scripture of Allah, that it should arbitrate, it should judge between them. But what do they do? Then a party of them turns away and they are refusing. They have some knowledge of the
Have a look, they don't have it all, because the fact is that who can claim that they have all knowledge of the Book of Allah, none of us can claim that. But what happens that some people, they become deceived with this little knowledge. And they think that what they have the little that they have is enough, and they become so proud about it, that when they're called to the book of Allah, they think they do not need it. When they're called, come learn some more, they say, We don't need it. Allah says, Have you seen the state of these people? Why do they think like this, because of the wrong beliefs that they have developed? It's their wrong belief that has corrupted them. What is the
wrong belief? That is because they say, never will defier touch us, except for a few number of days, they think I'm good, I'm perfect. Fire will not touch me, I'm never going to help. And even if I do, just for a few days, and because they were diluted in their religion, by what they were inventing, they invented many things in their religion, and because of that, they think they're perfectly fine. Unless so how will it be when we assemble them for a day about which there is no doubt and each soul will be compensated in full for what it earned and they will not be wronged? Say Allahumma Malik Al mulk, or Allah, owner of sovereignty, tell Malcolm and Tasha, you give sovereignty to whom you will,
what? 10 zero, Malcolm, Tasha, and you take sovereignty away from whom you will, what tourism and Tasha, you honor whom you will, what do they lumen Tasha, and you humble whom you will be a decal, hide in your hand is all good. In Nicaragua coalition in Korea, indeed, you are over all things competent, all of this comes from you, you give it you take it and your decisions are the best, you cause the night to enter the day and you cause the day to enter the night and you bring the living out of the dead and you bring the dead out of the living and you give provision to whom you will without account. So if a person has been granted anything, whether it is a lot or it is little,
whether it is money, or it is power, authority, whatever it may be, it is all from Allah, He gives it he takes it and why has he given it to some people? That is his decision? What is our job, see what Allah has given us and make the most of it and value what Allah has given us and use that to serve him even more. Let non believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever of you does that has nothing with Allah meaning then his connection with Elias finished, except one taking precaution against them in prudence, meaning you're being proactive. And this is why you've made a deal with them. And you are taking this as precaution. And Allah warns you of
himself, while you have veto como la Hoon epsa, Allah warns you of himself, fear Him, be afraid of him, and to Allah is the final destination. Say, whether you conceal that which is in your breasts or reveal it, Allah knows it, and he knows that which is in the heavens, and that which is on the earth. And Allah is over all things competent, the day, that day, that day is not far, which day, when every soul will find what it has done of good, where will he find it, present before it, whatever we have done of good any good deed, we will find it in front of us, we will see it in front of us on the Day of Judgment. But in addition to that, what else will we see whatever it has done of
evil. And when a person will see his own sins, He will wish that between him and that evil was a great distance. Because think about it even in this world when we are shown our mistakes, do we want to see them? Do we want to see them? If there's a test paper that is returned to us with all red?
attesting to it we have failed do we even have the confidence to see it? No, we just want to put it away. But the fact is, that distance is also the end. So on the Day of Judgment, even if there is a distance between a person and his record, eventually that distance will come to an end. So we must remember that we have to face our deeds. So do only that which you can face. Do only that which you can face.
Say only that which you can see which you can hear.
Because sometimes we don't even listen to ourselves. We don't even think about what we are saying.
Allah says that that day every soul will find every soul will find present in front of himself what every good that it has earned and every evil that it has earned. When you have below common law when epsa and along warns you of himself, make a note of this. Allah warns you of himself when you have little common law when we think Allah is all love. God is all love. Yes, he is loving. Yes, he is more merciful, but he also punishes
Allah is kind to his servants call in kuntum to a boon Allah hoffa Tabby Rooney say if you love a love and Follow me Follow who the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he want to show your love for Allah. Then follow the messenger, then follow the Beloved of Allah.
What will happen? Allah will love you, and He will forgive you your sins, and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. So let's show our proof of love, love for who allows love? How? By following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How by obeying him giving importance to his son. This is why the scholars used to say that an Eric Assad will be soon at Nigeria, holding on adhering to the Sunnah is salvation, meaning when a person holds on to the Sunnah, then he is successful. And when he will leave the sooner then he's headed on the path of destruction of failure. Because so now what is it essentially, it is the way that Allah likes. It is the way of the Beloved of a lot of the Messenger
of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the way he it, that is the best way of eating, the way he drank. That is the best way of drinking. The way he spoke the way he remembered Allah, the way he worshipped Allah, that is the best way of worshipping Allah. So if you love Allah, then follow the messenger say, obey Allah and the messenger. But if the turn away, then Indeed, Allah does not like the disbelievers. Why would he like those who turn away from his beloved? The Sahaba said, that we would be in the company of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he used to order us to do something only once, and we will do it only once, and we would do it. What is our condition? How many times do
we have to hear Hadees and order a command of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in order to change our behavior? Think about it when we receive messages in our phone, a notification how we jump up to respond, how we leave for that phone, reach out for that phone, even when our eyes are have closed, we are overcome with sleep. But what happens we're trying to look at the phone see who remembered us who ordered us who instructed us who said what to us.
Those who love the Prophet sallallahu sallam, then they also jump. They also leave forward in order to a battle Sula, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the law has to offer them one hand. What Allah Ibrahim there in Milan, I mean, Indeed, Allah chose Adam and no and the family of Ibrahim and the family of Emraan over the world's either made a mistake. Imagine, but still, when he repented a lecture was him. So who is it that a lot chooses those who are honest with Allah, those who turn back to Allah? Unless you as a some people above others for his work over here we see the people that are mentioned a lot chose them for what? For his Deen, these are prophets. These are families
that were chosen for the work of Allah. Why is it that I'm not sure some people he knows best, he knows best why he chooses some and not others. But what we need to see is that has Allah chosen me in some way, has Allah preferred me in some way over others menu to the left will be higher on you for
whoever Allah wishes good, for he gives him the understanding of religion. So if Allah gave us the ability to spend some time today, several hours today, with his book, to read his book to reflect on his book, isn't that a lot using us, giving us a good opportunity, because think about it, this time could have been spent even were standing in the kitchen, doing laundry, trust me, you could have spent this whole time just doing laundry and your laundry would not be finished. This time could have been spent just cleaning up the house, just cooking. And the work would not finish this time could have easily been spent staring at your phone, staring at the computer, at the television
screen, just chatting, just going around. It could have been spent right? But when Allah gives us the ability to leave that and come here, why for his book for a few hours, this is what a lot choosing us. Allah giving us the ability, Allah giving us that they'll feel that we made that intention, I am going to do this. I want to do it. And that ability to exert that effort also, and then finally do it too. Because we could have gotten up and left five minutes after the program began, right. We could have gotten up half an hour after that. But the fact that we're still here right now, we have the determination to sit through even though the back is hurting a little bit.
Now we're getting tired a little bit. Allah has given us though feast. So when Allah has chosen us, what should we do? We should be grateful. We should be thankful that era B my time could have been spent in something else, but now it is being spent with your book.
So what we need to do is look at how Allah has chosen us, chosen me, has preferred me, benefitted me gifted me. Let's not look at what has been given to other people. Because when we keep looking at what others have been given, then what does that bring in our heart envy, Misery, then we become miserable, envious. When we look at the treasure that Allah has given us, then we can make the most of what Allah has given us. Who are these people? They were the Rican Babu Hummingbird. They were descendants, some of them from others children of each other and Allah is hearing and knowing
