00:00:00--> 00:00:43

All you have believed, do not be like those who disbelieved and said about their brothers when they traveled through the land or went out to find that if they had been with us, they would not have died or have been killed. We are not allowed to say these kind of things, we are not allowed to make these statements, that if I had not gone out, I would not have had that accident. If she had not gone out, she would not have got that cold. If he had not gone on that flight, he would not have been killed. No. The fact is that no person dies except by the permission of Allah. And when a person dies, and at the place that a person dies, that is because that was decreed for him. So all

00:00:43--> 00:01:28

believers do not be like the disbelievers because disbelievers say this people who don't believe in Allah, they say such things. A believer knows that what has hit him could not have missed him. And what he has missed could never ever have reached him. So our Eman in Allah requires from us that whatever loss we suffer, we say in Allah, he were in LA he logical, we don't say, Oh, I wish I would have done this. Or I would have done that. No, I wish Oh, I wish low. This opens the door to shaitan. So Allah makes that misconception or regret within their hearts. Because if you keep thinking like this, I shouldn't have gone, why did I go? Why did I go? What happens? This is

00:01:28--> 00:02:03

something that makes you feel miserable in your heart. But when you incur that loss, and you say this is what Allah had decreed, then what happens? You are content. And it is Allah who gives life and causes death. And Allah is seeing of what you do, when the input is infeasible. And if you are killed in the cause of Allah or die, meaning any loss that you suffered in the way of a law, why are you feeling so miserable over it? Because if you do suffer any loss, even this loss, loss of your own life, then remember that forgiveness from Allah and mercy are better than whatever they accumulate in this world.

00:02:04--> 00:02:45

Just think, anything that we suffer in the way of a lie, you drove here this morning, didn't you? Or you came in some car or you maybe you took public transit, however you came? Did you spend some money you did. So any money even that you lose in the way of a law that you spend in the way of Allah? Remember, what is it bringing you a loss, forgiveness and mercy, every step that a person is taking in the way of Allah, every loss that he incurs in the way of Allah? What is that? a step closer to Allah azza wa jal, and whether you die or are killed, unto Allah, He will be gathered. So this money for example, how long are we going to have it, you keep $100 in your purse, thinking,

00:02:45--> 00:03:26

I'll save this for gas, what happens before you can go to the gas station, that $100 is gone, isn't it? Because whatever we've been given in this life, it is meant to go, it is meant to go, it's not meant to stay with us forever. Either it is going to leave us or we are going to leave it. So don't be sad, when you have to leave something for the sake of Allah or when something is taken away from you, when you are in the way of Allah. So by mercy from Allah or prophet, you were lenient with them, this is the leader This was Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam lenient with the Sahaba. And if you had been and if you had been rude in speech and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about

00:03:26--> 00:04:09

you. So pardon them, and ask forgiveness for them for who for the Sahaba for the mistakes that they have made, and consult them and matter in the matter. Take their advice, do consult them. And when you have decided, then rely upon a lot and don't, don't remain in indecision once a decision has been made, then tawakkol Allah Indeed, Allah loves those who rely upon him. If Allah should aid you, remember, no one can overcome you. But if he should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after him? And upon Allah let the believers rely. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was a mercy to the world, but he was especially kind to the believers. We learned and has been medic, he said, that once I was

00:04:09--> 00:04:45

walking with the prophets on the line in Salah, and he was wearing a particular kind of shawl that had a thick border to it. And a Bedouin followed him and pulled his shawl so violently, that I noticed the side of the shoulder of a loss messenger affected by that, by that show, because of because of the thick border, and because of that violent pole, and that Bedouin said, Oh Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, give me some of Allah's wealth, which is with you. So the prophets of Allah said and turned and looked at him and smiling, he ordered that he should be given something. He was so lenient with the people. Think about it. If we were in this position, what would we do? At least

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

give a dirty look, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he smiled and he said, Give this man something that he was gentle because Allah gives because of gentleness what he does not give because of harshness. It is not possible for any prophet. It does not

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

fit any profit, that he would act unfaithfully in regard to war booty, and whoever betrays taking unlawfully will come with what he took on the Day of Resurrection, then will every soul be fully compensated for what it earned? And they will not be wronged. So is one who pursues the pleasure of Allah, like one who brings upon himself the anger of Allah, and whose refuges Hell, no, they're not the same. wretched is the destination. They are varying degrees in the sight of Allah. And Allah is seeing of whatever they do. Look at the man Allahu Allah. Many certainly did Allah confer a great favor upon the believers, when he sent among them a messenger from themselves. And what did that

00:05:40--> 00:06:24

messenger do yet to do or lay him is he reciting to them his verses, while user key him purifying them while you are Lima homolka tab teaching them the book, while hikmah and the wisdom will encounter them in public life Ebola lima bean, although they had been before in manifest error, so these four blessings that are mentioned over here, what the law of the book recitation of the book does clear knowledge of the book, wisdom, these are gifts of Allah, there are a special favor and bounty of Allah. This is the legacy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which lives on till today. Now it is up to us. How much is it? That we also do these four things? Why is it that when a

00:06:24--> 00:07:06

single disaster struck you on the day of or although you have struck the enemy in the Battle of button with one twice as great, you said from where is this say it is from yourselves Indeed, Allah is over all things competent because the Muslims were surprised at how can we suffered? Why did we lose? Allah says this is because of you called woman during the unfussy calm don't blame anybody else? blame yourself? Why do trials come? Why do test tests come for our reform, for our correction for our improvement, but remember that when trials do come the believer his way is different from that of a hypocrite, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said that the example of a believer is like

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

that of a standing crop.

00:07:09--> 00:07:55

The example of a believer is like that of a standing crop. The wind sometimes shakes it and sometimes raises it up. And then it comes to its destined and, and the example of a hypocrite is that of a tree, which is not affected by anything that is uprooted once for all. You know, like a plant with a soft stem, what happens to it, it moves back and forth with the wind, but a tree, it just stands firm. And then with the wind, what happens it just gets uprooted. So a believer when he's going through tests and trials, he doesn't give up. He doesn't become arrogant, his foundation is firm. He changes himself. He sees Where do I need to move? How do I need to change he adjusts

00:07:55--> 00:08:40

himself. And this is the way of the believer will not asaba Komiyama call Gemma. And whatever struck you on the day the two armies met was by the permission of Allah, and that he might make evident the true believers, the true believers, when they are the Medina naffaa poo, and that he might make evident those who are hypocrites, Allah tests as believers, why? To get rid of hypocrisy, for it was set to down Come fight in the way of a law or at least defend. They said if we had known how to fight, we would have followed you. They were nearer to disbelieve that day than to faith saying with their mouths that which was not in their hearts. And Allah is most knowing of what they conceal.

00:08:40--> 00:09:20

Those who said about their brother as well sitting at home, if they had obeyed us, they would not have been killed. They're unhappy. Why? Because some Muslims went out in the way of Allah say, then prevent death from yourselves if you should be truthful. Okay, you want to sit at home? Then try to avoid that. Can you avoid that? No. While at the Savannah larina Kotaku, FISA de la he Amata and never think of those who have been killed in the way of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord receiving provision, rejoicing in what Allah has bestowed upon them of his bounty, and they receive good tidings about those after them who have not yet joined them. Meaning those who

00:09:20--> 00:09:59

have gone to Allah now, they are happy looking forward to those who will be martyred and join them, that there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they agree, such a great rank for who for the one who gave his beloved life to who to Allah lentinan will be on Pico minmatar hipbone they receive good tidings of favor from Allah and bounty and of the fact that Allah does not allow the reward of believers to be lost. Remember anila holla you do agile meaning the reward of the believers is not lost at all. So anything you suffer in the way of a law it's being recorded as reward

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

reward. Those believers who responded to align the messenger after injury had struck them, for those who did good among them and feared a lot is a great reward. This is about the injured the wounded Muslims who had barely returned from warhead that they had to pursue the enemy again, imagine the Sahaba had just buried 70 of their companions, the rest of them were wounded. They were emotionally hurt, physically wounded. And what happened, they were told, go and pursue the enemy. Go all the way to humbrol assets of the Muslims went all the way there in that injured wounded state. But what happened the enemy got scared that while these Muslims have come now, how many more must they be? So

00:10:39--> 00:10:48

they left and there was no battle? But it was just a test a lowest testing the believers. Do you even get up again after this loss?

00:10:49--> 00:11:33

Alina, Karla humaneness those to whom the people said, Indeed some people have gathered against you so fear them, but it merely increased them in faith. And they said sufficient for us as a law has been a law when they're men lucky enough for us as Allah and he is the best Disposer of affairs. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam said this, when he was thrown into the fire, and we see the believers also said this, when they had to go to when they had to go to fight the enemy again after the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said this has been Allah who and everyone Joaquin. So who should also say this? We should also say this, any time you find yourself worrying, how am I going to fast today?

00:11:33--> 00:11:40

How am I going to read for today? How am I going to go to class today? Any time you have this worry and fear?

00:11:41--> 00:12:23

How am I going to do it? You don't know how the time is gone? You don't know how just say husband Allah who will never mind what can we rely on Allah, not on ourselves. So they returned with favor from Allah with victory and bounty profits from trade they made they made trade over there and they returned with profit, no harm having touched them, and they pursued the pleasure of Allah and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. Allah says that was only shavon who was frightening you from his friends from his supporters, so fear them not, but fear me, fell at the halfway home, waha Fulani, if you are indeed believers, and do not be grieved by those who hasten into disbelief, indeed, they

00:12:23--> 00:12:52

will never harm a lot at all. Allah intends that he should give them no share in the hereafter. And for them as a great punishment. Indeed, those who purchase disbelief in exchange for faith never ever will they harm Allah at all, and for them as a painful punishment. And let not those who disbelieve everything that because we extend their time of enjoyment, it is better for them. No, we only extended for them so that they may increase in sin, and for them as a humiliating punishment.

00:12:53--> 00:13:33

Allah would not leave the believers in that state you are in presently until he separates the evil from the good. So remember, tests will come, trials will come, difficulties will come. Nor would Allah reveal to you the unseen he will love to tell you who's sincere believer and who is not. But who will reveal this, what will reveal this, the tests and the trials that you go through in life. But instead Allah chooses of his messengers whom He wills, so he tells him somebody, so believe in Allah and His messengers, and if you believe and fear Him, then for you is a great reward. And let not those who greedily withhold what Allah has given them of his bounty, everything, that it is

00:13:33--> 00:14:16

better for them. Rather, it is worse for them, there next will be encircled by what they withheld on the Day of Resurrection, and to Allah belongs to the heritage of the heavens and the earth, and along with what you do is fully acquainted. Allah has certainly heard the statement of those who said, Indeed Allah is for while we are rich, we will record what they said, and they're killing of the profits without right and we'll say, taste the punishment of the burning fire. That is for that is for what your hands have put forth. And because Allah is not ever unjust to his servants, highlight this will anila, laser beam, one, LeMond and arbete no matter what happens in life, a lot

00:14:16--> 00:14:59

is not unfair, he is not unjust. We make we harm ourselves. alladhina kalu there are those who said Indeed, Allah has taken our promise not to believe any messenger until he brings us an offering, which fire from heaven, heaven will consume, basically, the good one of their one of their objections is being refuted over here because they said that we cannot believe in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because a fire has to come down from the sky and consume his his offering the booty that has come from from the battle. When this will happen. Then we will know that Okay, he's a prophet of Allah. Allah says say they have already come to you messengers before

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

with clear proofs, there were profits before and this miracle happened. But even that, but what but what did you do? What did you do? The messengers came before with clear proofs, and even that of which you speak, the miracle was shown to you. So why did you kill them if you should be truthful than if they deny you saw were messengers denied before you who brought clear proofs and written ordinances and the enlightening scripture, Kowloon of sin, Eco mode, every soul will taste death. No living being is spared from this there is no escape from death. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was near his death, Fatima de la mer on her, she saw him in his pain. And she said, Oh, what pain

00:15:46--> 00:16:31

and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Oh, my daughter, what has come upon me is what Allah is not going to spare any man of until the day of judgment, meaning there is no human being except that he will go through the pain of death, he will go through death. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said, the son of Adam was fashion with 99 calamity surrounding him. Meaning throughout his life, there are so many reasons, so many things that come around him, that would cause him to die. If these calamities miss him, then he is stricken by extreme old age until he dies, meaning eventually he is going to die, if not because of some accident, because of some sickness, because some disease,

00:16:31--> 00:17:16

eventually what will happen, a person will become old and weak, and he will ultimately finish because most death is decreed for every creature. So don't flee death, prepare for it. And what is it that we should be concerned about our success after death, and you will only be given your full compensation on the date of resurrection. So he who is drawn away from the fire and admitted to paradise from an zorzi or an unnati? What are the halo janatha that he has attained success for Cardiff as he is successful, not the person who manages to live a few extra years in this world. Because no matter how long life is here, eventually there's death. Where is it that death will never

00:17:16--> 00:18:05

come? in general? Where is it that pleasure and happiness will never ever decline? in general? Where is it that beauty will never decrease? It will only grow on a weekly basis, regular basis because every Friday believers will meet Allah and will they when they will meet Allah, they will come back more beautiful. Beauty will only increase in general. But in dunya, it's the exact opposite. Children are so cute, so beautiful. But then what happens as they grow older and older. as people age, beauty declines, every blessing in this world will decline. So remember, we need to work for what for agenda for agenda, the one who is saved from hellfire. He's admitted into Jenna, then he is

00:18:05--> 00:18:48

successful. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion. It's only deception. And if we understand this, our perspective will change completely, then things would appear as they truly are, then we would not be greedy for what is unlawful, we would not desire something that Allah has not allowed. But we are deceived. We think that it is these things that we can find pleasure in, and we want them so badly that we will even compromise on what is lawful and unlawful. We will compromise on the Lord that Allah has given just to get pleasure right now. This is the deception of this life, you will surely be tested in your possessions and in yourselves, and

00:18:48--> 00:19:27

you will surely hear from those who are given the Scripture before you and from those who associate others with Allah much abuse. But if you are patient and fear Allah, indeed that is of the matter is worthy of determination, and mentioned on Mohammed, when Allah took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture saying, you must make it clear to the people and not conceal it. So this is not a new obligation that has been given to the Muslim Ummah, no, this obligation was given to every nation, every community of every prophet, that whatever the scripture you have been given, you must convey it. But they threw it away behind their backs, and exchanged it for a small price. They just

00:19:27--> 00:20:00

wanted worldly material benefits. So they put the book away, they ignored the message of the Scripture, and they pursued the world and wretched as that which they purchased. And never think that those who rejoice in what they have perpetrated the wrongs that they have done, but they're so happy about it. Never think that these people who like to be praised for what they did not do never think them to be in safety from the punishment, and for them as a painful punishment, and to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is over all things competent. So what should we do? We

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

should convey what Allah has given us off this book ourselves, we should make ourselves follow what Allah has given and we should also pass to others the knowledge that Allah has given us and with this the last verses of Surah Surah earlier Milan, now begin let's listen to the recitation of these verses

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

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

Me

00:23:30--> 00:24:16

these verses were the verses which were most beloved to the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam and authentic are these which is found in a sense that's also how we learned that I shadowed the low Arnhem reported that one night, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got up and said, Basha, let me worship My Lord. She said, By Allah, I love you to be with me, but I also love what pleases you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got up, purified himself, and he began his prayer. And in his prayer, he wept so much that his beard became wet, not just his beard, but even the ground on which he was prostrating, became wet with his tears. And he kept weeping until Bilal came to give

00:24:16--> 00:24:59

the other end. And when he found the profits on a lot of them crying, he said, Yeah, the sooner you cry, what Allah has forgiven all of your past and future sins. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, shall I not be a grateful servant? While Allah has revealed upon me these verses in the night, Woe to the one who reads them, but does not reflect on them. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam recited these verses, so let's read them and reflect on them. In nephew Hulk smls you will, indeed in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of the night and the day are Signs for those of understanding those people who remember a law while

00:25:00--> 00:25:50

standing or sitting or lying on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth. in their heart is remembrance of Allah. And in their minds, they reflect on the creation of Allah, saying, Our Lord, you did not create this aimlessly Exalted are You above such a thing? Men protect us from the punishment of the Fire. Our Lord, indeed, whoever you admit to the fire, you have disgraced him and for the wrongdoers, there are no helpers, our Lord, indeed we have heard a caller calling to faith saying, believe in your Lord, and we have believed our Lord, so forgive us our sins, and remove from us our misdeeds and cause us to die with the righteous mean, our Lord, and

00:25:50--> 00:26:39

grant us what you promised us through your messengers, and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, you do not fail in your promise, and their Lord responded to them. Never will I allowed to be lost the work of any worker among you, whether male or female, you are of one another. So those people who immigrated or were evicted from their homes, or were harmed in my cars, or fought or were killed, I will surely removed from them their misdeeds, and I will surely admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow as reward from Allah, and Allah has with him the best reward. These are the verses which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wept over. He was so grateful for

00:26:39--> 00:27:29

these verses. Why? Because these verses, what do they tell us, that those people who live their lives remembering Allah, who lived their lives, being mindful of what Allah has ordered them, those people whose desire is to enter Jannah to have Allah happy with them, whose greatest fear is the fire of hell. Those people who beg Allah for forgiveness, those people who have a man, those people who look forward to the promises that Allah has made, and because of this, they strive, they do their best, and in that they suffer Also, sometimes they have to do hedra sometimes they're driven out of their homes. If not that woofie severely this this suffer minor hurts or major hurts in the

00:27:29--> 00:28:23

way of Allah. Sometimes they're even made to give up their lives, such people, what does Allah say, la oka fear on Naren home sejati him? I will surely definitely, definitely forgive them there since these are the people for whom is forgiveness. Because the one who suffers for Allah, his suffering is not wasted. The one who is striving for Allah, his striving is not wasted. Allah is Shaku, Allah is most appreciated. So when he is so appreciative of our efforts of our miserable small efforts, then we should also be grateful to him for his favors. Such are the people who will be admitted into gardens beneath which rivers flow reward from Allah, and Allah with him is the best the best reward.

00:28:23--> 00:29:08

No one in this world can give us the best reward. Whatever award it would be, it would come with its own set of problems. Even if a person wins millions of dollars with that money will come a whole set of problems with everything in this world. There are problems. The best reward is in general, so aim for that layer or one noccalula Rena cafaro Philby lad, Be not deceived by the uninhibited movement of the disbelievers throughout the land. The people who live their lives in disobedience to Allah, they have freedom, they go about enjoying their lives. Allah says, Don't be deceived by that. It is but a small enjoyment because even if a person enjoys his entire life without suffering the

00:29:08--> 00:29:51

slightest hardship, still, that is nothing compared to the punishment of the officer. Why? Because on the Day of Judgment, we learned that among the inmates of hell, a person who had led the most luxurious life in this world will be brought up, he will be dipped in the fire and he will be asked or son of Adam, did you ever experience any comfort? Did you happen to get any luxury? And he will say By Allah, no, my Rob? No, my Rob. This is the person who lived the most luxurious life in this world. Allah says it is mobtown khaleel. It is temporary enjoyment. So don't be deceived by that. So mama home Johanna. Then their final refuge is hell will be selling me hard and wretched is that

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

resting place, but those who fear their Lord will have gardens beneath which rivers flow abiding eternally, they're in as a calmness.

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

from Allah, and that which is with Allah is best for the righteous best. And indeed, among the People of the Scripture are those who believe in Allah and what was revealed to you and what was revealed to them, being humbly submissive to Allah, this is what we need to develop. They do not exchange the verses of Allah for a small price, they're honest with the word of Allah, those will have their reward with their Lord. Indeed, Allah is swift in account. So don't think this reward is far. Yeah, you have Latina amanu all you have believed is to be patient. Yes, it's difficult. Yes, it hurts. Yes, you get tired, but be patient wasabia true, and endure, hold on, and encourage one

00:30:45--> 00:31:32

another to be patient, compete in patience. If one person is being patient, you try to be patient even more than them saburo will love you too and remain stationed for good work. Do not give up the good work that you're doing. stay firm, Robbie, Lu, and Robert, who also means keep connected, stay together and fear Allah, what the cola why La La come to fly home so that you may be successful. So what is it that we have been advised here at the very end of pseudo Alia and Ron, that we must be patient. And we must also encourage one another to be patient. And if someone is being patient, then we should try to be more patient than them not less. And for the service for the protection for the

00:31:32--> 00:32:14

preservation for the strengthening of the deen of Allah? What is it that we need to do always be ready to lobby to and also have regard for the bonds of friendship, the bonds of love that Allah has blessed us with? Because of his book through his book? And how is that by remaining connected? Let's not be divided. And this is only possible when a person gives up his beloved, ego, lengthen a little bit, and fecal matter a boon because when a person gives up his ego, he sacrifices his ego, he controls his arrogance, then what happens then he can be patient, then he can encourage someone else to be patient, then he can remain station for the service of the then he puts away and he

00:32:14--> 00:32:23

compromises on his own comfort and convenience to make the life of other people easier. And with this, we begin Sula, tune Nyssa
