And indeed for you in grazing livestock is a lesson, we give you a drink from what is in their bellies, between excretion and blood, pure milk for lateral to drinkers. Amazing. I mean, the milk comes out of the other and the other is what does fat flesh blood, and there's milk coming out of it. It's amazing. What an amazing system Allah has created. And milk in itself is so good. The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said, I know nothing that suffices in place of food and drink other than milk. This is also from celestial bodies of Sahaja. Meaning when you're hungry, and you can't find food and you're thirsty, and you can't find water was the best thing to have milk if you find
it. Right. It's the best thing to have. So if any day you are running short on time for the hoof, what is it that you can have for sure, milk and milk the prophets of Allah sent him also said that he who gives to another some silver or gold as a gift, or a water container, or he feeds him some milk, we couldn't find anything to give you just give some milk, then it is as if he freed the slave. This is from Muslim and from the fruits of the palm trees and grape lines, you take intoxicant and good provision indeed and that is assigned for people who reason well how to book a Elana Hill and your Lord inspired to the be a lot trained to be take for yourself among the
mountains, houses and among the trees and in that which they construct, then eat from all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord laid down for you. Because the honeybee doesn't fly randomly. They fly in a particular way, there emerges from their bellies, a drink, varying in colors, in which there's a healing for people. Indeed, and that is a sign for people who give thought, the source of honey is also the belly of a creature. Milk is also coming from inside an animal and honey is also coming from inside a bee. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the example of the believer is like that of a bee. It does not eat anything except good and does not produce except what is good. So
what do we consume? And what do we produce? That's something that we need to think about. Because the believer should be like the bee, and other heads tells us the example of the believer is like the bee, it eats what is good, and produces what is good. And whatever it lands on. It does not break it, nor does it ruin it.
So gently it lands on a flower goes inside it takes the nectar without breaking the flower. But have you ever seen rabbits or like goats or something like that these animals when they attack a plant, what happens? It's finished, destroyed. But a bee look at how it takes so gently. So a believer should be like that. So when we're taking something, giving something working with someone, what's the manner that we need to adopt? gentleness? And what do we learn in this ayah that there's chifa a cure a healing in honey, even our best full blown who said healing is in three things. A drink of honey, drink of honey, what does it mean? Drink it, don't take a drop of it and lick your finger and
lick the spoon. Take like a sip, a sip or two. Okay, drinking of the honey. Also cupping, cupping that is also cure and cauterizing with fire but the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has forbidden cauterization which is basically through burning. And Allah created you, then he will take you in death. And among you is He who is reversed to the most decrepit old age, extremely old age, so that he will not know after having had knowledge a thing Indeed Allah is Knowing and competent. And Allah has favored some of you over others and provision. But those who are favored would not hand over their provision to those whom their right hands possess so they would be equal to them there in then
is it the favor of Allah they reject and Allah has made for you from yourselves mates, and has made for you from your mates, sons and grandchildren, and has provided for you from the good things than in false or do they believe and in the favor of Allah they disbelieve, and they worship besides Allah that which does not possess for them the power of provision from the heavens and the earth at all. And in fact, they are unable. So do not assert similarities to Allah because there is no one similar to Allah. Indeed, Allah knows and you do not know. So do not describe him as you please and do not associate partners with him that you wish a lot presents an example a slave who is owned and
unable to do a thing and he to whom we have provided from us good provision. So he spends from it secretly and publicly can they be equal Praise to Allah, but most of them do not know that how can the creator and the creation be the same? And I love presents an example of two men, one of them dumb, unable to do a thing. While he is a burden to his guardian. Wherever he directs him he brings no good is he equal to one who commands justice while he is on a straight path? Then who is better the idol that is dependent or God
Is the provider Allah And to Allah belongs the unseen aspects of the heavens and the earth. And the command for the hour is not but as a glance of the eye or even near, Indeed, Allah is over all things competent, and Allah has extracted you from the wombs of your mother's not knowing the thing, and he made for you hearing and vision and intellect, perhaps you would be grateful How to Be grateful. Don't use the eye for what Allah does not like don't use the ear for what Allah does not like, don't use the mind to entertain thoughts that Allah does not like, don't give them any space in your heart. And the body must also be used correctly. The profits on lots of them said the first
blessing men will be questioned about on the Day of Judgment is that it will be set to him. Did I not correct your body for you, and feed you cold water? Allah will ask us the sound body that Allah gave us. What are we doing with it? The Sleeping with it is feeding it over indulging in physical pleasures? Or are we also using this body to stand in PM, praying to Allah using our mouth to recite the Quran? Do they not see the birds controlled in the atmosphere of the sky? None holds them except Allah indeed and that are Signs for people who believe and Allah has made for you from your homes, a place of rest and made for you from the hides of the animal stance, which you find light on your day
of travel and your day of encampment. And from there wolfer and here is furnishing and enjoyment for a time and Allah has made for you from that which He has created shadows, and has made for you from the mountains, shelters, and has made for your garments which protects you from the heat and garments which protect you from your enemy in battle. Thus does he complete his favor upon you, that you might submit to Him for interval No. But if they turn away, then only upon you as responsibility for clear notification. They recognize the favor of Allah then they deny it and most of them are disbelievers. You see on the Day of Judgment, we will be asked about gratitude that were you
grateful or not, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Allah will say on the day of judgment or son of Adam, I carried you on horses, camels, and how do you married and give you authority for a in a sugar alley?
For a initial crude Alec? So where is the gratitude for this? Where is the gratitude for the blessings that Allah has given us? gratitude should be for every bite and sip the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Allah is pleased with the servant who says 100 Allah while taking a morsel of food and while drinking Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah and mentioned the day when we will resurrect from every nation a witness, then it will not be permitted to the disbelievers to apologize or make excuses, nor will they be asked to appease Allah. And when those who wronged see the punishment it will not be likened for them, nor will they be reprieved. And when those who are associated others
with Allah see their partners, they will say Our Lord, these are our partners whom we used to invoke besides you, but they will throw at them the statement indeed you are liars, indeed, who are liars, what a big loss and they will embark to Allah that day, their submission and last from them is what they used to invent. Because that is surrender is not going to help those who disbelieved and diverted others from the way of Allah we will increase them in punishment over their punishment for what corruption they were causing, and mentioned the day when we will resurrect among every nation a witness over them from themselves and we will bring you as a witness over your nation and we have
sent down to you the book as clarification for all things and as guidance and mercy and good tidings for the Muslims in the law high up Moodle bill idly Well, if Sonny what eater it will weigh in her annual fascia he will moon curry well Bobby, you're a local La La come to the karoun Indeed, Allah orders you to be just Indeed Allah orders with justice, fairness, Allah idle, and other is to do to the other what he deserves. And the other also means moderation. Allah orders you that you be moderate, when your son and also good conduct meaning give to the other more than what he deserves. And also accent means beautiful work, meaning whatever you do, do it beautifully and given to
relatives and forbids in morality. What is it that Allah forbids shameless things, fascia are those actions the purpose and result of which is sexual pleasure? unlawful sexual pleasure. So Allah forbids you from that when mongkol and also bad conduct, while Bali and oppression going beyond one's limits and taking what others are deserving off? Whether it is the right of the creation or the right of the Creator, you're a local La La Quinta karoon he admonishes you that perhaps you will be reminded. So once you have been reminded, then do what you have been commanded and leave what you have been forbidden from and fulfill the covenant of Allah when you have to
It Oh believers, and do not break Olds after their confirmation, while you have made a law over you a witness, Indeed, Allah knows all that you do, and do not be like she who untwisted her spun thread after it was strong, meaning all night long, this woman spent the time spinning the wheel, making yarn, and in the morning, she broke it up, she destroyed it. So Allah says, Do not be like this woman who destroys her own work. How would you do that? By taking your old as means of deceit between you because one community is more plentiful in number or wealth than another community, meaning you become biased, you become unfair, why? For the sake of some temporary worldly benefits?
Well, in fact, what you're doing is you are destroying your own good work, because sins, what do they do, they erase the deeds of a person, Allah only tries you thereby and He will surely make clear to you on the Day of Resurrection, that over which you used to differ. So do not waste your deeds. And if Allah had willed, He could have made you have one religion. If Allah wanted, he could have made people all the same, having no differences whatsoever, how but he causes to stray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills, and you will shortly be questioned about what you used to do. And do not take your oath as a means of deceit between you. Meaning don't swear oaths for the purpose of
deceiving other people, that you take their confidence by swearing an oath, and then you do what you please, lest a foot slip after it was once firm, because when there's mistrust because of people breaking their promises, or going against the odds that they have sworn, then what happens then the foot slips What this means is that a person who wants to trusted you now is not going to trust you anymore. The person who wants found you to be reliable is not going to find you reliable anymore. And especially this is with respect to a person who has just embraced Islam, who is inclined to Islam, but because of your bad conduct, his foot slips, he doesn't see any good in Muslims. So he
loses his faith in the religion of Allah also. So you will taste evil in this world, for the people that you diverted from the way of Allah and you will have in the hereafter a great punishment, and do not exchange the covenant of Allah for a small price. Indeed, what is with Allah is best for you. If only you could know whatever you have will end it will be exhausted, the treasures, whatever you have accumulated, it will deplete it will run out, but what Allah has is lasting, and we will surely give those who are patient, their reward according to the best of what they used to do. Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer, what's the condition, ie man, it
doesn't matter whether a person is man or woman with the condition is that there must be a believer, then this person, we will surely cause him to live a good life and we will surely give them their reward in the Hereafter, according to the best of what they used to do. A good life doesn't necessarily mean a happy life free of problems. A good life means a productive, useful, beneficial life in which a person makes something, he earns something, he leaves a good impact. So a person who lives like this, Allah says we will make him live a good life and in the Hereafter also, after this person dies, his efforts are not going to be wasted. rather he is going to be rewarded according to
the best that he used to do. So when you recite the Quran, first seek refuge in Allah from shavon be expelled from his mercy. So if you didn't say our will the Billa herself. Now say it, I said it I don't know about to each and every one of us is reading the Quran here, whether it's the translation or the ayah we are reading the Quran. So let us seek refuge with ALLAH against shaytaan because when a person is doing a good deed, even like reciting the Quran, reading the Quran, then shaitan becomes active. Shelton tries to distract a person tries to make him feel bored. Or even though he may be sitting the mind is elsewhere so the person is not enjoying is not benefiting from what they're
doing. So seek refuge with ALLAH against re laundy expelled, how is she upon the expelled because he is expelled from the mercy of Allah. Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord. So those who have faith in their Lord, who rely upon Allah than Shelton the devil, he cannot affect them, he cannot mislead them. His authority is only over those who take him as an ally, and those who threw him associate others with Allah. So shaitan has power over who those who befriend him those who listen to him
And the one who remembers Allah, then shaitan has no control over him. In a hadith we learned the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said that if there are three men in a village or in the desert, three men anywhere, why is the desert mentioned or the village mentioned, because there is no population over there, no people over there, meaning they're alone, it's just the three of them. And prayer is not offered by them together, then the Shelton has got mastery over them. Meaning of these three people do not perform the prayer and they do not perform it together, then what will happen, children will have control over them. So what is it that we learned from this, that people who
neglect prayer, people who neglect remembering God, then what happens? The devil has more control over them, he is able to affect them more, he's able to make them do more worse deeds, as opposed to the one who gives himself in the protection of Allah than he is safe from the attack of shaken. And when we substitute a verse in place of a verse, And Allah is most knowing of what he sends down. They say you are but an inventor of lies, but most of them do not know. Meaning when they hear the Quran, they say that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has fabricated it. This is his speech, Allah says most of them do not know. Because if they really paid heed to the Quran, they would never say that
this is the word of men say the pure spirit has brought it down from your Lord in truth, to make firm those who believe and as guidance and good tidings to those who surrendered. And we certainly know that they say it is only a human being who teaches the Prophet because there were some foreign slaves in Makkah, and they said, Oh, this man, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has learned all these stories from these foreigners, and he's putting it together in the form of the Quran. Allah says the language of the one they refer to as foreign, these foreigners don't even speak Arabic. And this Koran is in a clear, eloquent Arabic language. Indeed, those who do not believe in the verses of
Allah, Allah who will not guide them, and for them as a painful punishment, they only invent falsehood, who do not believe in the verses of Allah, and it is those who are the liars, who are liars, those who don't believe in the words of Allah, whoever disbelieves in Allah after his belief, except for one who is forced to renounce his religion, while his heart is secure in faith, but those who willingly open their heart to disbelief upon them as wrath from Allah, and for them as a great punishment. Why? Because that is because they preferred the worldly life over the hereafter. They chose the worldly benefits, the worldly enjoyment over the eternal reward that Allah has in store
for people, and that Allah does not guide the disbelieving people. Those are the ones over whose heart and hearing and vision Allah has set a seal. Why? Because when a person does not use a faculty that Allah has given him, eventually it stops functioning, it stops working, and it is those who are the heedless, assuredly, it is they in the hereafter who will be the losers than indeed your Lord to those who immigrated after they had been compelled to renounce their religion, and thereafter fought for the cause of Allah, meaning they went to this length even that if someone raised weapons against them, they also defended themselves, and they were patient, less liberal. Why were they patient,
because living as a person who has surrendered to Allah, this kind of life is not easy. This requires a lot of patience. Indeed, your Lord after that is Forgiving and Merciful, on the day when every soul will come disputing for itself, and every soul will be fully compensated for what it did, and they will not be wronged. Allah will forgive such people on this day. And Allah presents an example, a city which was safe and secure. Its provision coming to it in abundance from every location, the city is the city of Mecca.
But it denied the favors of Allah, how did they deny the favors of Allah, that when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam came to them, they refuse to believe in him. And this is also a form of in gratitude. Remember, that if we reject even one blessing of Allah, then that is as though we are rejecting all of the blessings of Allah, because who is the sender of that blessing? Allah is. So if we reject even one, if we're ungrateful for even one, then that is an attitude of gratitude. That is an attitude of ungratefulness. And so over here, Allah says that when the disbelieved in the messenger, it was as though they denied all the favors of Allah, and for in gratitude, what are the
consequences? Allah made it taste the envelopment of hunger and fear for what they had been doing, then good times turned into bad times, then ease turns into hardship, and there had certainly come to them a messenger from among them.
selves, but they denied him. So punishment overtook them while they were wrongdoers, we learned earlier that when a person is grateful, then his blessings increase. And this is something that's very logical because what we appreciate, appreciates, it grows in front of us in its value also, and what we are ungrateful for, then what happens, it diminishes, we don't even notice it in front of our eyes. And this is what happens that when a person is grateful, then his blessings are increased for him. And when a person is ungrateful, than his blessings are diminished for him, then each of what Allah has provided for you, which is lawful and good because this is also a form of gratitude,
that the blessings that Allah has given you, use them, enjoy them, and be grateful for the favor of Allah, wash guru near Matata law, be grateful for the blessing of Allah, you see, when a blessing is taken away from us temporarily, and then eventually were able to enjoy it, then what happens then we feel grateful. And Ramadan is an experience of this. Alright, then when all day we're not able to eat and drink. What happens when you're able to take that first sip of water? How you appreciate that, isn't it? You appreciate it. Even the food doesn't matter whether it's too salty or cold or soggy doesn't matter. You are hungry, you will enjoy it. Right? Why? Because you didn't have
anything to eat all day. But what happens with us, we enjoy it. But we forget to thank Allah because we're so busy eating, we forget to thank Allah. So consciously thank Allah, especially when you break your fast. When you break your fast Remember to praise and glorify Allah, thank you for the food and thank you for the blessing of being able to fast the hub a woman who was 10 Latina was Sotherton, Angelou, insha Allah reward by the will of Allah, if Allah wants is going to be secured in kuntum, Yehuda Boone, if it is, indeed him that you worship, he has only forbidden to you dead animals blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah, but
whoever is forced by necessity, neither desiring the unlawful nor transgressing its limit, then Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful, and do not say about what your tongues assert of untruth. This is lawful and this is unlawful to invent falsehood about Allah. Because the fact is that the law concerning lawful and unlawful especially when it comes to food, this is complete. Allah has revealed it in his law in the Quran, the prophets are the laws that have taught us what is lawful, what is unlawful. So we as human beings, as believers, we do not have the authority to declare something that Allah made unlawful, as lawful, or vice versa. Why? Because this is like inventing
falsehood about Allah, because What proof do we have, that Allah made it lawful? What proof do we have that Allah made it unlawful? If we don't have any proof from the Quran and Sunnah, then that would be lying about Allah. Indeed, those who invent falsehood about Allah will not succeed, they will never be successful. It is but a brief enjoyment and they will have a painful punishment. And to those who are Jews, we have prohibited that which we related to you before, meaning they have more restrictions, they were given more, more prohibited things, and we did not run them thereby meaning when those foods were made unlawful for them, this was not oppression against them. They
were wronging themselves. And what is it that they did, they made these lawful foods unlawful for themselves, they change the law that Allah made that Allah gave for them. And when they changed it when they alternate, then Allah impose those hardships upon them. You see how careful the prophets on a lot of them was that even though he loved praying in the night, and the Sahaba also loved praying with him in the night. What happened? We learned Buhari that in one of the nights of Ramadan, the last night of Ramadan, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was found praying by himself by some Sahaba. So what did they do? They went and joined him. And then the next day people found out
so what happened more people came and then more people came and then they came and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam never showed up for Salah, he was praying in his house. So they were a little, you know, taken aback that what happened. We want to pray with you. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not do that. Why? Because he was afraid that if I make this a habit to lead everybody in prayer every night, then this will become an obligation and everybody. So even though he loved it, he didn't do it. Why? Because we are no one's to change the law of Allah. When we change the law of Allah, we will only create difficulties for ourselves, then, indeed your Lord to those who have done
wrong out of ignorance, and then repent after that and correct themselves. Indeed your Lord thereafter is Forgiving and Merciful indeed, is
Ibrahim was a leader. Ibrahim was an oma he was like a nation he did the work of a nation and he was a leader, devoutly obedient to Allah what made him an oma, what made him a great leader. The fact that he was a devout servant of Allah inclining toward truth, and he was not of those who associate others with Allah. How else was he Shakira Lee and Rumi. He was grateful for his favors. He was grateful for the blessings that Allah bestowed upon him. And we learned about his grace earlier about his prayers, that however I humor this and I'm at such an old age, when he receives the good news of children and when he has children, then what happens? He doesn't say, Well, finally, he
doesn't show any anger or any frustration over there. Rather, he says, Alhamdulillah he led he will heavily Ll kebari is married, that all praises for Allah, Who granted me a child, despite my old age, in not be less than Mira. Indeed, my lord is the one who responds to the law, who responds to prayers. This was the gratitude of Ibrahim Ernestina, that in no situation, was he ungrateful to Allah, even when he received what he wanted, so late? Still, he was grateful. And when a person has these qualities in himself, of gratitude of surrendering to Allah, then he is chosen by Allah, He taba who Allah chose him Wada who illustrata Mr. Kane, and Allah guided him to a straight path. And
we gave him good in this world because this is a lost promise, the servant who is righteous the servant who is obedient, a lot does not waste his reward. And indeed, in the Hereafter, he will be among the righteous, then we revealed to you to follow the religion of Ibrahim. So as Muslims, who is it that we follow who's our leader, who's also one of our leaders, Prophet, Ibrahim alayhis salaam. So we revealed to you to follow the religion of Ibrahim inclining toward truth and he was not of those who associate with Allah. So let's not associate any partner with Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is not a partner to Allah. He started his anime is not the son of Allah. No, Allah
is one unique having no partner, no one is equal to Him, because He is the only creator and everything else besides Him His creation, so his status is higher.
The Sabbath was only appointed for those who differ over it. And indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ. invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction. When you invite somebody to worship Allah alone, then invite them wisely and with good instruction, and argue with them, meaning discuss with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from his way, and he is most knowing of who is rightly guided. And if you punish an enemy, meaning if an enemy becomes violent towards you, and you have to take revenge, then do so with an equivalent of that, with which
you are harmed. Meaning do not exceed what was done to you. Because if you do that, then you will be the oppressor. But if you are patient, and you forgive, that it is better for those who are patient, whether in sobre, la highroller, sabihin. And this is something that we need to adopt in our personal lives also, that when we are dealing with anybody, and they annoy us, they hurt us, then let's do in return only as much as they have done to us not more than what they have done to us. And indeed what is better is that we just overlook and pardon and forgive what they have done to us. Why? Because patience and forgiveness, gentleness, they bring results that harshness and revenge
they never bring, whilst bear and be patient. Well, masaoka illa Billah and your patience is not but through Allah, meaning a person can only be patient if Allah gives him the strength to be patient. So let us ask Allah this month, this month of sobor that Oh Allah grant a suburb that we have patience over our stomachs that we can control our hunger and our thirst give us the ability to control our tongues also, to control our attitude to control our thoughts also. So when masaba Luca, in lavilla, and do not grieve over them and do not be in distress over what they conspire in Allah Hama and Medina taco, when levena, whom mercy noon, Indeed Allah is with those who fear Him, and
those who are the doers of good because a person can only do good when he fears Allah and a person when he is patient. Then what does it mean that he has fear of Allah. So we see that Allah orders us to do your son to do good to others, and he who listens to the command of Allah
Then remember that Allah will also help him because what prevents us from being good to others from showing forgiveness and tolerance is that then we will suffer. But what do we learn here that when a person is obedient to Allah then Allah will also help him. So if we want the help of Allah, then we have to obey Allah, especially with respect to being good to the servants the creation of Allah subhanaw taala will be humble Misha de la ilaha illa Anta nastasi Luca wanted to boo la Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
