Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim In the Name of Allah, the entirety Merciful, the Especially Merciful Alif Lam Meem sod kita boon owns de la la caja falaya confused Federica Harada Minh who literally in the lobby he was he clearly I mean, this is a book reveal to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So let there not be in your chest, any distress there from don't feel uncomfortable on reading this book and learning this book. Why? Because this book when you have it, then you may warn thereby. And as a reminder to the believers, this hold on is a reminder for who for those people who believe, what does it remind them of? It reminds them of forgotten lessons. Each time a person reads the
Quran, he is reminded, think about it, many of you have studied the sutra in great detail. You have memorized the work to where translation, you have done the tests and you have also submitted the assignments. But what happens when you revisit these verses? And you just read the translation and reflect just a little bit on it? Does it not give reminders? It does. So this reminder who needs it? All of us need it. Why? Because we forget therefore it Tubby aroma Anzhi de la COVID la become follow all people what has been revealed to you from your Lord and do not follow other than him any allies. Little Do you remember a Neelam Matta the cartoon?
Because the thing is that studying the Quran once it is not sufficient at all. Why? Because a person studies at once he learns about it, he learns what Allah has ordered what Allah likes what Allah dislikes, and then because we're human beings, we learn, but then we forget. And then just within a few days, we learn about something else which clearly contradicts the command of Allah. And then what happens we begin to follow that. We are impressed by that, despite knowing what Allah has ordered our actions, they don't conform to the book of Allah, why? Because we have forgotten, because remember, where Allah is calling us shame upon is also constantly calling us. Our nuts is
also constantly pulling us and then there are people in this world who are also constantly calling us to something other than the book of Allah to something other than the way of Allah. So then, if you leave this connection, if you leave this rope, then what will happen? What will happen, you will earn you will make a mistake, you will fall. So what is necessary that every now and then we take the time to review the Quran, we take the time to reconnect with the book of Allah, why so that we may follow what has been revealed to to us from
Our Lord whenever Tubby Roman dooney Oh Leah Alam method karoun
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I have left two matters with you, as long as you hold on to them, you will not go the wrong way. They are the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Notice over here, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, If you hold on to them, hold on to them.
You know, for example, if you're holding on to your phone, why so that you can get your reminders you can get your notifications, holding onto your phone doesn't mean owning a phone. Because you could own a phone, it's fully charged, but it's on silent and it's in your bag. Somewhere in the house. What good is that phone?
What good is that phone? It's useless, isn't it? So when is that phone going to benefit you? When it's in your pocket. So that every time you get an alert, you get it, you get a notification, it buzzes and then you read it, you you know what you're supposed to do. You're still in touch. What happens is that we take the study of the Quran as a goal, okay, I've studied it my Jesus complete. I've taken a test done the assignment from the lab, the certificate done colosse. Now let's move on to something else. No.
It's like purchasing a phone. Okay, putting all the updates, putting all the nice apps and then putting it away. It's useless. The Quran is meant to be acted upon. And we can only act upon it if we remember, we can only remember if we keep in touch with it will come in Korea tin alakina ha. And how many cities have we destroyed and our punishment came to them at night or while they were sleeping at noon, and their declaration when our punishment came to them was only that they said indeed we were wrongdoers, because after knowing a person can forget, and when he forgets he could make serious errors and he could be caught while committing those serious errors.

levena audyssey la la him one n s n n l mursaleen. Then we will show the question those to whom a message was sent. And we will surely question the messengers on the Day of Judgment, everyone will be asked funen upasana Allah him barickman wa konoha A bien, then we will surely relate their deeds to them with knowledge, everything they did will be put before them. And we were not at all absent, what was new yoma eternal Hulk and the weighing of deeds that day will be the truth, records of deeds will certainly be weighed. This is true, our deeds, their records, the records in which those deeds are written down recorded, those records will be weighed. So those whose scales are heavy, it
is there who will be successful. Earlier we learned that each has adonijah according to his deeds, and these are our job, these levels will be determined by this wasn't by this way, this means an because this this means an shows the worth of the deeds that a person is is performing. We may be performing many deeds, but what is their worth? What is their value, that will be determined by what this scale on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, on the day of judgment, huge scales will be set up. so huge that even if the sky and the earth were to be weighed in it, it would become vast for it. Being it's that big that it It could contain even the sky and
the earth. You know, sometimes we wonder, since the beginning of my life, I've done so many things. I wonder how many, many pages that would be
What what record? Not possible, we begin to doubt. But what do we see here? That the scale is so huge, that even if you were to fit the earth and the sky,
it can actually carry the earth and the sky in it. It is that huge. So all of our deeds, no matter how many there are, no matter how many they are, they will be weighed. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the scale will be set up, and the angels will ask Who are these for whose deeds will be weighed in it. And Allah will say, whoever I please from among my servants, the angels will say, silver Chanukah, ma arriba de nakka help kariba take Glory be to You. We have not worshipped you, as you deserve to be worshipped. There's so much that we could do because the scale is so big, but we did not do enough. We did not do enough. So what do we see? That this means then is real
deeds will serve
be weighed. So first of all, we should never think that we have done enough. We should never ever think that we have done enough.
There's always room to do more. And secondly, what we really need to be concerned about is the worth of the deeds that we are performing. Are they even acceptable to Allah? Are they done in a way that Allah would be pleased with? it? was the intention correct? Was the methodology correct? was it done really to earn the pleasure of Allah and those who scaled our light? They are the ones who will lose themselves for the injustice they were doing to word our verses what is injustice? What is this one? learn is to not give something it's how the right that it deserves. What is the right of the verses of Allah that they believed in that they be followed? And if a person does not believe in them does
not recite them does not follow them, then he's doing one. So for Ola equal Nadine hospital and Busan be McCann will be a Yeah, Tina Yaga the moon. And We have certainly established you upon the earth and made for you there in ways of livelihood. Little are you grateful kalila Mehta, Sharon, remember that sugar is also an action, it is also a deed. Because it will carry a lot of weight in the scale. And if you think about it, gratitude sugar is something that leads us to action.
When a person is feeling ungrateful,
do they have any motivation to do anything? No, they just want to sit down and just sit in their misery. But when a person is feeling grateful, happy than what happens, they're active, they want to do something, they cannot sit still. When a person is happy, he rushes to do something. So unless has karela Mathur spoon little it is that you show gratitude, meaning how little is it that you show obedience to your Lord. And We have certainly created you or mankind and given you human form, then we set to the angels Prostrate to Adam, so they're frustrated except for Iblees. He was not of those who frustrated on us, let alone one who reported that when Allah created Adam Iblees began going
around Adam observing him, like you can you can see that the hatred and the jealousy, like he's going around Adam looking very carefully scanning in metrotile. If only I could see one fault, or some weak point in him. And when he saw that Adam was hollow, meaning the stomach was there, the stomach, all right, hollow, he said, I will win against him, because he has been created with something that he has no power over.
He has no power over and what is that? Our need to eat? Because when we're hungry? Do we lose control of ourselves? Do we Ramadan is coming and it will show how much control we really have over ourselves and how much control we don't have of ourselves. Right? So it bleeds said that because he's hollow from inside, he's got a stomach, I can win over him. Because this is his weak point.
So shaitan leads us astray health,
through our stomach, what we eat, because sometimes we eat that which is not right, or we eat too much excessively, is rough and what happens, then we're not able to do anything good. So Ramadan is a time to control this desire to eat. Why? Why? Because this weakness of eating right? It has overpowered us in the past year. So develop strength against the enemy through fasting. Allah said, What prevented you from frustrating when I commanded you at least refused? So I said, Why didn't you do it? I ordered you and this is something that we need to remember also, when a loss order is clear, then why should we not do it? Isn't it sufficient that Allah has ordered ShareFile and said I
am better than him. You created me from fire and you created him from clay. Allah said descend from Paradise. Get out from here for it is not for you to be arrogant there in so get out. Indeed you are of the debased 400 in Mecca, Mina Salim. So what do we learn humiliation and disgrace is for who? Those who disobey their Lord,
not those who obey their Lord, those who obey their Lord, they will be honored in this life and the next and those of disobey their Lord. There is dishonor, humiliation for them in this world and in the next on, he said, shaytaan said, reprieve me until the Day they are resurrected, meaning give me a very long life to live don't cause me to die until the day of judgment. Allah said indeed you are of those who are reprieved. shavon said because you have put me in error. I will surely sit in wait for them on your straight bath. This is a blessing.
You're blaming a law for one's own wrongdoing. You made me sound Oh Allah. You didn't let me pray. It's not my fault. That's exactly what she did. Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left and you will find and you will not find most of them grateful to you while you do a thorough homeshare kitty. So what do we see? The chair ponds ultimate goal is to make us feel ungrateful. Why? Because in Shackleton,
it's a lost promise that if you're grateful, alone will increase the blessings for you. We appreciate appreciates. It increases Indonesia and India clearer and for ingratitude for coffered, the punishment is severe. So shame porn, what does he want, that we should become ungrateful because when we're ungrateful to Allah, then what will happen? our good deeds will decrease our hope, our faith and alone will weaken, our obedience to Him will also decrease our worship of Allah will also decrease. And then our relationships will also get damaged in gratitude is very dangerous. It seems very batty, but it's actually very dangerous. Because Chevron's goal is what will lead you to act on
Shaklee. Then we see another thing in this ayah the children said I will come to them meaning to people from before them from behind them from their right from their left. Meaning there is not a thing we do except the trip on interferes in it.
Except the chip on interferes in it. Anything we do shaitan His goal is to bother us even in our sleep. He tries to frighten us, even when we are praying, he tries to distract us, even when we're reciting the Quran. This is why we're told first Billahi min ash shaytani regime, isn't that when we're trying to eat shaitaan interferes in that. I want you to imagine this, that there is somebody who is just next to you, constantly commenting on what you're doing, interfering in what you're doing, criticizing you for what you're doing. And suggesting that you do things differently. Just imagine you sit down and imagine somebody right behind you right next to you. Don't sit here Sit
there. Fine. You get up and you sit there. No, no. Why are you sitting you should be standing. You cook something? Why are you cooking this way? You go somewhere you drive? Why are you going this direction? go the other direction? Right? These people people who who instruct us while we're driving? What do we call them backs backseat? drivers, right? You want to drive come drive. But if you're not driving, then let me drive. Just imagine if somebody's constantly commenting on what you're doing? Will it bother you?
Will you consider that person to be a friend?
No way. What happens? Our mother is if they tell us? Why are you wearing this dress? Go change it? this scarf doesn't match. Change your shoes? Why aren't you studying right now? Eat some more? Why are you eating so much? Drink some water. Go to school now. What do you say, Mom?
I know what to do.
And if that person happens to be a mother in law, God save her.
Or if he happens to be the husband, then what will happen? We don't consider these people to be our friends do we?
Where do we if somebody is constantly commenting, criticizing, would we consider them to be a friend never ever shavon he interferes in every everything that we do. When you go to your house, when you sit down to eat something. Anything you do shelf on is there to bother you. But the thing is, we don't see him. And this is why we don't take him as an enemy. But Allah is telling us here what shavon said that I will come to them from before from behind from their lot right from their left. And what's his objective? Why does he interfere to ruin the work that we're doing? Because when you're doing something like for example, imagine you're baking, okay? And you're counting, okay, I
put three tablespoons I needed to I need to put two more and somebody who's constantly talking what happens you get confused to level three or four. You get confused, right? And then you can't you can't remember if you would put baking soda or not. So you put it again anyway and then what happens in baking soda cookies. Not chocolate chip cookies, baking soda cookies, because all you can taste is baking soda.
So Aren't you mad at that person that they ruined what you were doing? They destroyed it. Your effort is gone waste. That is shape and scope. That whatever deed we're doing, we're giving charity. We're fast.
We're praying, he wants to ruin it for us so that they don't have worth any worth in the hereafter.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the shale pawn is present with any one of you in everything he does.
In everything he does shavon is present with you in everything he does, he is present even when a person eats food. So if any one of you drops a mouthful, he should remove away any filth on it, and eat it and not leave it for the devil. And when he finishes the food, he should lick his fingers for he does not know in what portion of his food the blessing lies.
This is why we have been taught that the barrier between us and shavonda thing that will come between us and JSON is what the name of Allah Bismillah
saying Bismillah when a person says Bismillah unlocks the door chiffon cannot open it. When a person says Bismillah and eats and drink chiffon cannot have a share in that even when it comes to sexual intercourse. They're also the DA What is that? Bismillah because you find it interferes in everything.
So this is something we need to remember and in order to protect ourselves from shaitan remember the name of Allah. Allah said get out of Paradise, reproached and expelled whoever follows you among them I will surely fail Hellfire with you altogether. So many people will follow Shay upon and oh Adam dwell you and your wife in Paradise and eat from wherever you will but do not approach this tree lest you be among the wrongdoers. Adam Arsalan was tested with only one tree, and we are also tested with just a few 100 things. Everything is lawful, just these things are how long
but look at what shavon will do. He will make that which is prohibited. attractive. There's so much food so many options, what the shape on sale for that tree, so many things to do, but what the shape and say, do it the wrong way. He makes how long attractive, so easy. So when we choose the Haram option, then who are we listening to chiffon he is doing with us exactly what he did to Adam and he set up for us was Allah Houma. shaytaan. But children whisper to them. You see here shavon started on the first day, his mission he started on the first day, he didn't wait for other medicine to go on Earth, even though other medicine was created to live on Earth. But before he was sent on Earth,
he was placed in Jenna for a test. All right, and I thought what did he do? He started that same day, he didn't wait for next month for next year. What do we do?
What do we do?
I'll do something in childhood. And then what happens when the time comes, we forget.
So whatever is necessary, just do it. Now. chiffon whisper to them, and what was his goal, to make a parent to them that which was concealed from them of their private parts, meaning he wanted, he wanted their bodies to be exposed, how he wanted that the that the claws they had been given in general, they should be taken away from them. And when they will be taken away from them, their body will be exposed, causing them embarrassment. So that was his goal. He said, Your Lord did not forbid you this tree except that you become angels or become of the immortal what a lie.
What a lie. And chiffon also tells us the same kind of lies. Just take this mortgage, within a few years you'll own the house, really, you'll be living in debt for the rest of your life.
That's that's the reality of it.
That is the reality of it.
But your thought tells us you own a house, you own it, how will you own it?
How can you if you cannot afford it now, if you can't afford rent, how can you afford a mortgage? You understand, Chetan is a liar he lies to us. He tells us that what Allah has forbidden, it is good for us. He said to Adam, your Lord did not forbid you this tree except that you become angels or become of the immortal will cause some of whom Ah, and he swore by Allah to them. And sometimes shavon brings such people in front of us who will swear who will tell us that? No, this is the only option you have you better do it you are in a state of necessity. Indeed I am to you from among the sincere advisors.
He comes to us also in the same way such great deception. You see other artists and I've had never seen an enemy. At this point. Forget an enemy. He had never seen a man at this point another man because it was just him and her. That's it the only two human beings right? So this was his first encounter with someone who was very cunning. So what happened for the lahoma blue, so he made them fall through deception and when they do
stead of the tree, their private parts became apparent to them, meaning the clothes of gentlemen, were taken away from them. The honor that they were given an agenda it was it was taken away from them. And that's exactly what happens. When we commit a sin, then what are we doing, we're embarrassing ourselves, we are now depriving ourselves of the blessings that Allah has promised us. Remember, there is not even one morsel of food that is written for you, except that you will eat it before you die.
Not a morsel of food, if it's ready for you, you will eat it you cannot die until you eat it. You cannot. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, edge milovan Allah, seek what Allah has decreed for you in a beautiful way.
That is what you are being tested about. How do you seek it? How do you get it? If a house is written for you, you will have it. You will have it. Nobody can keep that away from you. And this is our belief in God. If an education is decreed for us, it is decreed for us no one can prevent us from it. What is our test? A Jamil oufit Paula, BB beautiful in acquiring it and seeking it. And when we don't, then who are we embarrassing ourselves? Who are we humiliating ourselves? Who are we depriving of the honor in ourselves?
So they began to fasten together over themselves from the leaves of Paradise instantly they started covering themselves because this is within the people of Eman. The people of hire. They do not like to expose their bodies and their Lord called out to them did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you that Trayvon is to you a clear enemy called Rob Burnett, alumna and for Santa
Fe learner, water Hamner, learner coonan Amina, ha serene. They said Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves. We made a mistake. And if you do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, we will surely be among the losers.
This is the door that we need to make. Also, when we make a mistake, mistakes happen. None of us is perfect. But when a mistake happens, first of all, at least acknowledge Robin Avalon for Santa, we did well, but we need your forgiveness column to come battledome liberal denardo Allah said, descend being to one another enemies and for you on the earth is a place of settlement and enjoyment for a time. This is where you have to live for a while. Life is where
only on earth because Allah said, then you will live and then you will die and from it you will be brought forth. Not from the moon.
Not from Neptune not from Mars From where? From the earth, or children of Adam. We have bestowed upon you clothing to conceal your private parts and as adornment clothing. What does it do? It covers us and it beautifies us and Allah says and zelner alaykum we have sent it down on you. Because if you think about it, every other creature on earth doesn't need clothing.
Do they need clothing? No. Why? Because they're already created in such a way that what is necessary for them is on their body.
Isn't it? Have you ever seen camels in Canada? Have fur on the thick fur? Isn't that amazing?
Why? Why do they have thick for the camels in the deserts don't have it. Why? Because they need it here. Right? We have not been created with jackets on how do we know Allah did not create us in such a way that our bodies do not need to be covered? No. We need covering we need clothing for what purpose for protection for covering and also for the purpose of beautification.
It is what adorns us it is what beautifies us and Ansel now we have sent this down on you, meaning we decreed this for you. We have ordered you we have commanded you to clothe yourself. When the vessel taqwa the Lika has high but the clothing of righteousness that is best. What is the clothing of righteousness? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam pointed to the chest, his heart and he said a taco Ravana taco is here. Meaning taco is what we should adorn ourselves with. The heart also needs to be dressed properly with the adornment with the beautification of the core. And what does that mean that the intention should be good? That is from the signs of Allah that perhaps they will remember.
So what do we see here that Allah has ordered us to wear clothes. It is by his decree that we need clothes and he has provided us the materials also.
Our Dean instructs us to cover our body to cover our body
Those parts of the body that must be covered now shall pawn. What does he do? He attacks us through our stomach. Right? Why? Because that's a weakness. This is also a weakness that he attacks us through were through our clothes, just as Adam and how he wanted that their clothes be taken away, what does he want, that we also willingly leave our clothing, either completely or partially, that is what he wants. Now, if a person adopts Hillel the correct way, then he becomes the Beloved of Allah. And when a person does not do that, then he becomes distant from Allah, and he gets closer to shavon.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever leaves
whoever leaves ostentatious clothing, meaning clothing that a person wears for the purpose of, you know, feeling proud about himself, I look the best, I look great. I look better than everybody else. A person who leaves such kind of clothing, out of humility for Allah, while he is able to afford it, then Allah who will call him on the Day of Judgment, before the entire creation, and let him choose whichever clothing of the court that he pleases. He can wear meaning on the Day of Judgment, Allah will honor him with special clothing, who the one who dresses up in humility to Allah. So he leaves what makes him feel arrogant.
Or Children of Adam lecture thought tempt you as he removed your parents from Paradise, stripping them of their clothing, to show them their private parts. Indeed, he sees you he and his tribe from where you do not see them. Indeed, we have made the devil's allies to those who do not believe because when Medina cafaro Alia Oh,
their friends are thought and what do they? Do? They take them out of light into darkness, they affect them. Now, what do we see in this ayah? The champion sees us but we don't see him. And that's why we don't take him as an as an enemy. But imagine an enemy with his eyes fixed on you, gun pointed at you. Maybe Have you ever seen seen that on TV? And then like a sniper gun is just fixed on a person, they're moving and it's moving with them, right?
That's how she upon targets of square is it that this person becomes negligent of a lot that I can attack? I can destroy him, I can ruin him, I can corrupt the work that he is doing. That is what champon does. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, when the woman goes out, meaning every time a woman goes out of her house, then what happens? She upon pays attention to her meaning he directs his attention to her.
Especially a woman. Why?
Why? Because if he manages to mislead her, then who's going to follow her? Her family?
Isn't it? So what do we learn from this? That trade on is constantly looking for those times when he can destroy us and he can destroy others through us also, just imagine an enemy looking at you. What do you do? Don't look at me. You know, even if it's not an enemy, a friend, if they're looking at you, or you go to a party and somebody's just staring at you do feel awkward. I don't want this person's looking at me. Better go from here. I can What's wrong? You feel uncomfortable, Siobhan is looking at you. So be on guard, when he either far lufa heisha, thin and when they commit an immorality, they say we found our father's doing it. And Allah has ordered us to do it. Say Indeed
Allah does not order in morality. Allah never ordered you to do this. He ordered you to wear clothes, do you say about Allah that which you do not know. We seek the machine. They used to perform the tawaf of the Kaaba, naked. And it was the more righteous amongst them who did it. Why? Because they said that we come to Allah in our original form. As He created us, what logic are they said, that we send in these clothes. So when we come to Allah, we get rid of these clothes, while you send in your body,
and shave your head and cut your body off and do something. I just bring your soul logic, right reasoning. And even today, people who say that, no, we don't need to wear clothes. What do they say this is how I was made.
I'm proud of my body. I'm not trying to show it because this is how I am. Right? This is the logic and that's exactly what the machine came up with.
Right? adorn decorated speech. So Allah says, glomerata be Bilkis say, My Lord has ordered justice and that you maintain yourselves in worship of him at every place or time of prostration and invoke him sincerely
To him in religion, just as he originated you, you will return to life for the purpose of his app, a group of you He guided and a group deserve to be an error. Why? Why, why is it that a group deserve to be error because indeed they have taken the devil as allies instead of Allah while they thought that they were guided
