Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
to bring him in,
in the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful be Especially Merciful. All praise is due to Allah who created the heavens and the earth and made the darkness and the light. Then those who disbelieve, equate others with their Lord, it is He Who created you from clay, and then decreed a term and a specified time known to him, then still you are in dispute, and He is Allah, the only deity in the heavens and the earth, He knows your secret, and what you make public, and he knows that what you earn, he is fully aware of all what we do, whether we say something, or we keep it in our heart, whether we express it, or we hide it, nothing is hidden from Allah. And if that is the case, then
this means that we must refrain from disobeying Allah out of his fear. We don't disobey Him, neither in public nor in private, neither in our heart, nor from our mouth or our limbs. And secondly, this means that if a mistake has happened, then what do we need to do? seek forgiveness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of his most common drawers would be a low homophily, man, to woman, to woman, to woman, to woman, to woman, to the most common to all of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was what? That Oh Allah, forgive me for what I have done by accident. And forgive me for what I have done deliberately Forgive me for what I have done secretly, and what I have done openly, ignorantly
and knowingly because all of these mistakes happen, right? So this was the most common throughout of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. In another Hadees, we learned that once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam got up at night for Salah, and then before he said the Salaam after that the Shabbat as he was sitting Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. medora he said Allah homophily macadam to Walmart, to Walmart, to Walmart Ireland to Walmart, to Walmart, movie mini unten mocha demo
La Ilaha. Illa, anta that Oh ALLAH forgive me for the earlier and later open and secret since those that I did knowingly and those that you know of better than I, you are the first and the last there is no god but you so even before saying the Salaam, the prophets of Allah instead of seeking forgiveness, why? Because Allah knows what we yarlung will say rockin with wotja Huracan. We are allama Maxi Boone, he knows your secret and what you make public. And that which you earn. Because sometimes we say something, and we don't even know what we have earned. We do something we don't even know that we have earned, we look at something we listen to something and we don't even know
what we have earned. So we commit sins without even realizing without even thinking. So the profits are a lot of sort of mid profit or low whatever sins I have committed, and you will know best about what I have done. You forgive me for all of them. The fact is that none of us as an angel. Anybody sitting over here can claim that he is perfect that he doesn't commit errors, that she's just perfectly fine. No, but especially when we are alone.
Especially when we are alone, then what happens it's easier to make mistakes. Why? Because no people are there. So the fear of people is also not there. And that's why Chetan when he's sitting next to us and we forgot to say our the bit law. We forgot our
Morning, our evening a call, we didn't say Bismillah, then what will happen shaitan is with us, and he's not going to leave us alone. He's not going to leave us alone, he's going to keep telling us keep telling us until we end up making even a small mistake, but we definitely earn that is his goal. So remember, when we are alone, sitting by ourselves alone in the house, looking at a screen all by ourselves, then what happens? It's much easier to make a mistake, it's much easier to slip. So we need to become even more conscious when we are alone. Be afraid of yourself. Never be comfortable with your own soul. Be afraid of it because this can also be an enemy, because in the
nafsa, a monotone bisou the knifes the soul, it constantly over and over repeatedly urges us to do evil to disobey Allah. And this is why in secret in private, it is more difficult to control oneself. Likewise, when it comes to the state of the heart, when it comes to our actions, our words, can we control them somewhat? Yes, we can. But when it goes to the state of the heart, nobody knows what we're thinking. Like, for example, right now, it's quite possible that the thoughts that are going on in our minds are very negative, maybe about another person we're thinking negative thoughts about them so alone, back thoughts about them. And that is also a kind of a sin, or entertaining
doubts about the deen about the Quran about alone. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he told us that there are in the morning in the evening, what is that there are that Oh Allah protect me from the evil of my soul. What is that da?
Hmm Allahumma inni are older, becoming sharper enough, see, protect me from the evil of my soul. Because the soul also can be very, very lucid, it can really cause a lot of harm to a person. And no sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord, except that they turn away from them, for they had denied the truth when it came to them. But there is going to reach them the news of what they used to ridicule, have they not seen how many generations we destroyed before them, which we have established upon the earth as we have not established you, and we send rain from the sky upon them in showers and made rivers flow beneath them, then we destroyed them for their sins and brought
forth after them a generation of others. And if we had some down to you, or profit or written scripture on a page, exactly as the people demand is a written scripture was sent down, and they touched it with their hands. The disbelievers would say, this is not but obvious magic. And they say why was there not sent down to him an angel, but if we had sent down an angel, the matter would have been decided that they would not be reprieved. And if we had made him an angel, we would have made him appear as a man, and we would have covered them with that in which they cover themselves meaning then their confusion still would not go away. And already were messengers ridiculed before you but
those who mock them were enveloped by that which they used to ridicule, say, travel through the land and observe how was the end of the deniers. Only my math is somewhat old. Colella say to Whom belongs whatever isn't the heavens and the earth say it belongs to who lilla Allah owns all of this data on an fcn Rama Cotta island of Sierra Rama he has decreed upon himself Merci, Sunil anom is a Maki surah. And remember that this surah was revealed when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was migrating to Medina.
And this surah when it was revealed an entire group of angels came down with it, a delegation came down with the suta gibreel alone did not come, a group of angels came and the sutra was revealed in one go like a hot bath. All right, it was like in one go. The prophets of Allah said and received the sutra and the theme of the surah is the heat, believing in Allah as the only God The only creator The only one deserving of worship. This is the theme of the surah and this is why we see that in this surah there are so many facets of Allah subhanaw taala that are mentioned what are some attributes? If you remember the first day, I mentioned to you that as you read through the Quran now
as we reflect on the meanings of the Quran, also take note of the different names of Allah, their names Generally, we do notice them but when it comes to attributes of Allah, we tend to neglect them. So over here in this ayah when Allah says Lima math is somehow what you love, what say for what attribute is it that we learn about
Allah, what attribute that he is the owner, he is the master that everything belongs to him. There is nothing at all except that Allah owns it. There is nothing at all except that Allah owns it. Now this world if we start listing the things that are there in this world, the list would be endless. And this world compared to the universe is what? The universe that just we know. kolima math is somehow wacky. Well, the problem is that we read over this and we don't even think about it. I want you to feel I want you to think about what you're listening to what you're reading.
Lima Murphy's summer what you will out,
to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Who does it belong to? Who do we belong to? A law only law and this Lord Who is he Kabbalah nfcu Rama, he has decreed upon himself mercy, Leah, Gemma Anna, Camila, Yeoman Pia Mattila Roy, Buffy, He will surely assemble you for the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt those who will lose themselves that day do not believe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when Allah completed the creation, he wrote in his book which is with him on his throne, that my mercy overpowers my anger, one of whom is going to feel alien to her, and To Him belongs that which reposes by night, and by day, why does it belong to
him? Something that rests in the night or something that rests during the day? Why does it belong to him? How does it belong to Him, because He is the Malik. And that means even the crawling ends that you see crawling around everywhere, what happens to them at night hidden? They go and rest all day long. You see birds flying around chirping making noise, but then what happens at nighttime, they stop and they rest. So anything moving that we see moving, moving, and then what happens? It stops, who does it belong to? It belongs to Allah. Well, who was Samira Eileen, and he is the hearing the knowing. The thing is that if we really want to worship Allah alone, if we truly want to fear a law,
the way he should be feared, if we want to love a love the way he should be loved, if we want to recognize a love the way he should be recognized, if we really want to develop a class sincerity, then you know how that begins. It begins through reflection, reflection on what on Allah's creation, that everything that a person sees, even if it's a moving ant. A person doesn't just think, oh, how annoying. No, you think this and this little end? Allah made it? Allah knows where it is going? Have you ever found a fly going around in your house? And you wonder, where did it come from? Where is it going to go? What is it going to eat? Where is it going to sit on? Where is it going to die? Is it
going to be able to leave this house even? Or is it going to die before that? Every creature small or big moving? Or still every creature belongs to who Allah He is the Holic? He is the Malik. This is how great our Lord is. But we forget that well Malka de la haka de.
If we come across a person who is very rich, if we find out about a person who has become very rich, who has earned a lot of money, what is our concern? What did they do? What advice do they give? What books have they written? What articles have they written? What piece of advice do they give? And we're desperate for that guidance. Why? Because we're so impressed with their material wealth, who owns that person, and who owns whatever they have a law, then say, is it other than Allah, that I should take as a protector?
Should I leave alone and go seek others know, Allah is the Creator of the heavens and the earth? While it is he who feeds and is not fed, every creature is fed by Allah. And Allah does not need to be fed, saying, indeed, I have been commanded to be the first among you who surrendered to Allah and I was commanded, do not ever be of those who associate partners with Allah say, indeed, I fear if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous day. If I should disobey my Lord, then I am disobeying who, the master the owner of everything, and therefore, disobeying him is something that is not very minor. It's something very serious.
I fear the profits and loss of is being told to say say this, that if I disobey my Lord, I fear the punishment of a tremendous day, my use of Anhui oma identificado rahima he from whom it is averted that day, then yes, Allah has granted him mercy with a nickel frozen morphine and that is the clear attainment. What am Sasikala who Lin falaqa she fella who Illa? Who, and if Alicia touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except him. When he m saska be hierin for who are Allah Khalifa in karate? And if he touches you with good, then he is over all things competent. Why? Because everything is in his control, for he is the sole Master, the sole owner of the entire creation. What
do we see here? that any harm any adversity that strikes us who can remove it, only Allah and if it has struck us, it has struck us only by whose permission and will allow us will now recall anything that you have suffered in life, bring to mind anything that you have suffered in life? Perhaps you bumped into the side of your bed this morning? Perhaps you burned the hijab while ironing it? Perhaps you hurt yourself, as you were chewing your food. Perhaps you ate ice cream someday and had a brain freeze, freeze or brain brain freeze?
Or perhaps you walked in the sun and felt very hot. These are all What? Both?
Both. Perhaps you lost something very precious to you. Perhaps something that's very precious to you broke by your own hands. These are all what forums have.
Nothing of this door happens except by Allah as well.
If I bumped into my bed and hurt my knee, that's because Allah willed it. If I hurt my tongue while chewing on food, that's because Allah willed it. If I broke my favorite cup, that's because Allah willed it. Now the question is why? Why did Allah allow that to happen? What was my fault? What wrong did I do? Yes, think about the wrong that we did. Definitely. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no, I quivers, and no vain quivers from pain. What does it mean by that quivers from pain? Because when your eyes are hurting, is it as if they are shivering, like almost like quivering, right? And when you have pain somewhere deep inside, also that pain, it's like a
movement inside, even if it's very, very subtle and deep, it's a movement. Nothing like this happens. Except that it is because of the sense that the servant has committed and Allah pardons much Allah pardons much, meaning he doesn't punish us, because of every wrong thing that we have done. Now remember, any hardship, any mistake, any difficulty, any pain, stop and think. Don't stop and curse. Stop and think. Because generally what happens instantly we stop and we begin yelling and other people. We start screaming, and we start cursing and fighting. Think, what did I do? Yeah, Allah, this happened by your Will you will this for me? Perhaps I did something wrong? Yes, I did
something wrong. Definitely. I did something wrong. I don't know what I did y'all know, you know, better guide me. Tell me, what is it that I did show me my mistakes so that I can fix them. And if you really take a moment to think about it, why you bumped your leg in the side of your bed and hurt your knees so bad? If you really take a moment and think about it, you will know why. You will know exactly why, perhaps an arrogant thought crossed your mind.
Perhaps some negative thought about another individual crossed your mind.
These are all effects of our sins. And yes, Allah also does people for other reasons. But what we need to think is that when we are afflicted by hardship, then remember Allah willed it. So who can take it away? Who can take it away? Only Allah can take it away? Whether it is poverty, or it is hunger, or it is illness? Then remember, this is a time when we call upon Allah, Yara be ill fiddly. Oh my Lord, forgive me. I did something wrong. You forgive me. So he who recognizes his Lord, He will seek forgiveness from Allah at this time, and then he will ask a lot of to remove that affliction from him. When somebody hurts your feelings, even that is a form of affliction when
somebody yells at you, they're upset with
You This is also a form of the
recall and think about the wrong that we have done and beg Allah for forgiveness, and then ask a lot to create ease for you. Because even a relationship could be between husband and wife could be between brother and brother, it could be between sister and sister, mother and daughter, even if a relationship is causing you grief.
If a beautiful relationship that was meant to bring peace in your life, that was meant to produce love and mercy, if that is causing you to cry, day and night, if that is causing your heart to ache, this is a load from who, from Allah, Who can remove that those who can Allah can
so beg him to remove it, ask him to remove it, ask him to fix your situation for you, those who asked him, then yes, Allah autoresponse. To them, Allah also helps them because when a person is in a state of difficulty, and he calls upon Allah, then what happens? It's because of that difficulty that he was led to Allah. So that difficulty that brought it became a stepping stone for him in his journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala. A man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what is it that you call people to? What's this religion about? What do you teach? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I call to Allah, the Exalted and majestic alone, the one who, when you are afflicted
with some adversity, you call upon him, and he removes it from you. When you are afflicted with a year of famine, and you call upon him, he makes produce grow for you, and the one who, when you are in a desolate, empty land, and you get lost and you call upon him, he responds to you. When the man heard this, he accepted Islam that he has, I believe in the Lord like that, because only he hears only hear response, nothing happens except by his will, and nothing can change except by his will, or who will call hero phulkari body and he is the subject Gator over his servants. Well, who and how Kimo hobby. And he, he is the wise the acquainted with all he is a hit over his servants. He has
full control over his creation over what he owns, yet he has given us freedom,
freedom to do what to do what we please, to make the choices that we want, and then he will question us, usually in Shahada kulula say what thing is greatest in testimony say, Allah is witness between me and you. And this iron was revealed to me that I may want you there by and whomever it reaches, the Quran was revealed to who Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam for what purpose, so that he may warn people, and whoever this person reaches, that person is also warned by the Quran. So this Quran is for who
Quran is for all it is for everybody, it is for everyone. Why? So that they may know the reality of this life, they may know the reality of what is to come after death. They may know what is to follow after death, so that they may live their lives properly. Do you truly testify that with Allah there are other gods, if you say that say, I will not testify with you. This means that even if the whole world says something wrong, can we agree with them? We cannot agree with them. Even if a person says with a lot of conviction, that God has a son God has children, then what is Allah tell us say all lash had, I do not testify? I do not agree with this. I do not confirm this. I disagree with this.
Because it is not just enough to say I believe in Allah. What is necessary is that we also say, I believe that Allah is the only God and there is no god worthy of worship. But Allah La ilaha illa Allah, there is no god except Allah. Why is it necessary to say that because a person can only go to Jenna, if he believes in the heat and though he does complete with this negation and affirmation, negating every God except for who Allah affirming him as the only God and this is totally pure therapy. When a person believes in pure though he lives by it, only then he is going to
say, indeed he is but one God and indeed I am free of what you associate with him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whosoever will meet Allah without associating anything in worship with him, will go to Jenna will
Go to Agenda meaning ultimately that person is going to enter agenda for sure. In another had these we learned, he who worships Allah without associating any partner with him, establishes the prayer gives a cow hears and obeys that Allah who will admit him through any of the doors of Paradise that the servant wants, that the servant wants, meaning all gates of gentlemen who will be open for him and he'll be told you choose. Where do you want to go in from this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one or that one. And the prophets of Allah said him said, and Jenna has eight gates,
two factor hula hula, the gates of Jannah will be open for them, you choose how you want to go. But this is for those who believe in the hate and live by it refrain from Shin, then Allah will honor them that day, those to whom we have given the Scripture recognize it as they recognize their own sons, those who will lose themselves in the hereafter do not believe and who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah Li or denies his verses. Indeed, the wrongdoers will not succeed, and mentioned Oh, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the day we will gather them all together, then we will say to those who are associated others with Allah, where are your partners that you use to
claim with him, then there will be no excuse upon examination, except that they will say, by Allah, our Lord, we were not those who associated meaning that day they will deny having done any form of [???], see how they will lie about themselves. And last from them will be that which they used to invent. And among them are those who listen to you. But we have placed over their hearts coverings less they understand it, and in their ears, his deafness, and if they should see every sign, they will not believe in it, even when they come to you arguing with you. Those who disbelieve say this is not but legends of the former people. And they prevent others from it, meaning from the truth or
from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and are themselves remote from him. The one who stops people from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, is in fact far from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, because if you truly knew him, he would not stop people from him. Because we see that even there are people who do not believe in Islam. But when they have studied the life of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, then they have begun to appreciate the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they have begun to appreciate him. And this is something that's well known, because rasulillah his personality is such that when you learn even one story about him, it only grows you in love and
appreciation of that great man. What a kind man he was, what a different man he was, even when you compare him with the prophets of Allah. He started Santa Ibrahim run a salon, they will dissociate themselves from their nations. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he read those it wept over to Matsuyama my nation, but but my oma I don't want them to be punished. He was concerned for all people, every individual, even his enemies, so much of the profits or losses that have made Dora the aroma guide one of the two role models, and who are they guide one of those two intelligent people and Who were they? One was one of the longline who and the other was a Buddha. Can you
imagine Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is praying that a Buddha will be led to Islam, can you imagine are one of the lower the profits of the lesson is praying that he'd be left to Islam, he made the offer him if somebody gives us a dirty look, even once, just once one dirty look, we hate them for life. We treat them as our enemy. We never accept a word of advice from them.
We hate them with all our heart. Look at how forgiving and kind and generous this noble man was. So they prevent others from him, and are themselves remote from him. And they do not destroy except themselves, but they perceive it not. If you could not see when they are made to stand before the fire and will say or would that we could be returned to life on earth and not deny the signs of our Lord and be among the believers. But what they conceal before has now appeared to them. And even if they were returned, they would return to that which they were forbidden and indeed they are liars.
