Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim In the Name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful Luma Oh Hiya, la comunal kita recite what has been revealed to you off the book? Welcome is Sala and established the prayer in na sletten her Anil fascia a well known call indeed prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing. What are the crow law he Akobo and the remembrance of Allah is Great while La Jolla Allah momento snur own and Allah knows that which you do. Over here. Apparently the command seems to be for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam however, firstly he is addressed but after him, every single person who is listening to this is being addressed that aluma Oh hiya la
come in El kita recite whatever has been revealed to you of this book, meaning this book, The Quran has not been revealed in order to be put away this quote has been revealed. Why so that it is recited and recited not just for oneself for personal worship and reward, but recite to others as well. And how is it that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam implemented this? We see that the prophets on a lot of them recited the Quran in his Salah, outside of his Sunnah for himself, and also he recited the Quran to others. If he recited the Quran, just for himself, then would the light of Eman would the light of guidance would the light of this being wouldn't reach the people would it
spread out? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited the Quran at every occasion to people he taught them the book. And for this, all we need to do is just examine the Syrah and see how frequently the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited the Quran. And after tilava what is mentioned over here that will, Seamus Allah established the prayer because from among all the practical acts of worship, we learned that Salah is the most important why is it the most important because in Asana that then her Anil fascia he will mooncup indeed Salah it prevents a person it prohibits a person from committing immorality and wrongdoing. The fact is that Salah has a great
impact on a person's personality on his manner, on his etiquette. So Allah is something which brings humility to a person, it creates modified Allah in the heart of the slave. It increases the conviction in the meeting with Allah subhanaw taala. And also Most importantly, Salah is what establishes a connection between the servant and his Lord. So Salah when a person performs it regularly, properly the way he should perform, then what happens it affects his entire life. It affects his thinking, his mind his lifestyle.
While it changes his entire life, and this is why we see that Salah is of utmost importance when it comes to the acts of worship. Because if you think about it in a Salah, what is the person doing, he is basically engaging in the remembrance of Allah. He is cutting himself off from everything in this world, so much so that he's not even looking right or left. He's not even saying what he wants to say. This is the amount of self control that a person has to practice in his prayer. So this Salah, definitely it has an impact on the rest of the life of the believer also, when a person is performing Salah, what is he doing? He's humbling himself. He's bending himself before Allah. And
what is the lesson of sauna what is the practical effect of sauna, that outside of sauna also, a person learns to bend himself to humble himself before Allah, that a person is willing to give up his ego to give up his wish to give up his desire when it comes to the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, when a person learns to restrict himself within the limits that Allah has set in Salah, then what happens outside of Sala also, a person is able to refrain from forbidden matters in the salata tanha and in fascia, he wellmune calm and we see that Salah is a conscious effort to remember Allah subhanaw taala and what happens outside of sauna is that a person develops the habit of
remembering Allah and this is what produces the poor. This is what produces consciousness of Allah soprano Donna, and this is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam once a man came to him, and he said that he Otto suta Allah, so and so person he prays in the night and when morning comes this man he goes and commits theft, meaning in the night he prays and in the daytime, he goes and commits serious sins. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, what he is saying will soon prevent him meeting his prayer will soon prevent him from the wrong that he is doing. So Salah is the key to transformation, it is the key to personal reformation. It is the first step in personal reform. And
we see that because of Salah, a person's previous sins are erased, and his present state is also reformed. Once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam held two branches of a dried up tree. Just imagine fall season dried up branches and the prophets are a lot of them held them and think about it. If you would hold it what would happen, the leaves would fall immediately. So the prophets have a lot of them held the branches and the leaves they fell. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said indeed the Muslim servant performs the prayer, desiring by it allows face and the sins fall off from him. Just as the leaves fell off from this tree, Salah it destroys the sins of a person. It helps him get rid
of his past sins. And it also helps him get rid of his presence in his presence, things that he cannot get rid of Salah helps him get rid of bad habits. And then what is mentioned after a sauna, that one of the court of law he a couple. the remembrance of Allah is the Greatest. It is the greatest meaning it is greater than any good deed that a person could be doing. And at this time, I would like every person to be involved in the vicar of Allah, leave your phone, leave everything right now and focus on the the color of Allah. Right now. The Quran should be our attention and focus everybody please sit up straight, no need to lean against the walls. Everybody set up straight
hamdulillah and the Quran should be in front of us and we should be looking at the Ayat of Allah. Because we have not come. We have not left the comfort of our beds and the comfort of our homes just to spend time on our phones. We could be doing that at home also. Right now. Let's focus on the Quran. Allah says Allah the Quran, Allah He a kebab. The Vicar of Allah is the Greatest. What does it mean by that? Meaning it is greater than engaging in the remembrance of anything else, of anything else. It is a deed which when a person is involved in them, it is the best deed which a person could do. Meaning it is the most precious blessing that a person could have. That he gets the
ability that they'll feel to remember Allah because how many people there are, who are apparently involved in a good deed, but their hearts are distracted from the remembrance of Allah. So what do they get from that good deed from that Salah.
One African, Allah says that they don't remember a lot much even in prayer. When a Quran Allah Allah, Allah Allah. So the vicar of Allah is the greatest blessing that a person can receive. And this means that if a person is able to remember a law easily, then he should consider himself very, very fortunate. And if a person is far from Allah, they could, then this is true misfortune. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, should I not inform you of the best of your deed, and the purest of them with your master, the best deed that you could perform the purest deed near your master, and the highest of them in your ranks, and what is better for you than spending gold and
silver and better for you than meeting your enemy and striking their necks and they strike your next meaning, the best deed that you could perform, the Sahaba said, of course, your rasulillah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the remembrance of Allah the Most High. This is the best deed that a person could be engaged in more other than Jebel said, there is nothing that brings more salvation from the punishment of Allah than the remembrance of Allah, meaning this is an act that protects the person and the vicar of Allah. Of course, it includes the recitation of the Quran, it includes performing Salah, but it also includes the test to be heard saying so panelist panela he will be
handy he Alhamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Allah Ameen saying La Ilaha Illa La La hawla wala quwata illa Billah meaning saying all of these words, of glorifying of praising Allah on the tongue, but remember that the real remembrance is that which is in the heart. The real remembrance of Allah is that which is in the heart, that no matter what a person is engaged in, no matter what they are involved in, no matter what they are doing, they are thinking about Allah subhanho wa Taala. They're aware that my lord is watching me, my lord is listening to me. And each action is bringing the servant closer and closer to Allah, that no matter what a person sees, who is it that he remembers,
Allah, the greatness of Allah settled in the heart of the servant. This is the true remembrance of Allah. And at the end of the ayah, Allah says, Allah who you are now Matheson our own, and Allah knows that which you do, meaning none of your actions are hidden from Allah, none of your actions, whether you perform them secretly, or openly, publicly or privately, in the prayer or outside of the prayer, no matter what you do, or Allahu jamoma does not own wala to God do lol kitabi illegibility here, our son, and do not argue with the People of the Scripture, except in a way that is best meaning anytime you do argue with anybody, even if they be the people of the book, those who don't
agree with you, those who disbelieve in the book that you believe in, then do so are you how with good luck in a manner that is best meaning Do not let go of your of luck, except for those who commit injustice among them and say, we believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you and our God and your God is one meaning talk on common grounds, and we are Muslims in submission to him. And thus we have sent down to you the Quran and those to whom we previously gave the scripture believe in it. Meaning those who truly believe in the scriptures that Allah has revealed. When they come to know of this Quran, they will believe in the Quran also. And among these
people are those who believe in it, and then reject our verses except the disbelievers will not go into that lumen public human kitten, and you did not recite before it any scripture because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was unlettered, he did not know how to read he was not well read at all. When at the hotel will be me Nick nor did you inscribe one with your right hand, meaning you never expressed yourself in the form of writing in the form of poetry, either alone table mobile alone, otherwise the falsifies would have had cause for doubt, meaning then those who reject you, they would have a doubt that perhaps you have made this Come on up. You have invented it yourself. The
fact is, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam recited the Quran, and he was a man who was unlettered, who had never read a book, who had never been formally taught, who had never written who did not know how to express himself. And we know that people who have never learned the art of writing the art of expressing themselves.
Even in the form of art, or any form of art for that matter, whether it is color, or it is through language, or it is through poetry for them to spontaneously all of a sudden come up with the Quran as eloquent as this. It's impossible. So the fact that the Quran was recited about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam given who he was, is a testament to the truthfulness of the Quran, but who am by Hina. Rather, the Quran is distinct versus preserved within the breasts of those who have been given knowledge. Whereas the Quran preserved in the heart of those who have been given knowledge and non reject our verses except the wrongdoers. We think that if we have preserved the Quran, reflections
in the Quran, in a blog, or perhaps in a book, we have done our job, the real preservation of the Quran is where it is in the heart of a person will call a loo and they say, Why are not signs miracle sent down to him from his Lord, say the signs are only with Allah, he decides which one to send, and I am only a clear Warner. And is it not sufficient for them that we reveal to you the book which is recited to them is the Quran not enough of a miracle? Indeed, and that is a mercy and reminder for people who believe the Quran is a mercy and reminder for those who believe, meaning the stronger a person's faith is, the stronger a person's love and adoration for this book is than the
stronger his reflection will be, the more he will learn from this book, and the more mercy the more guidance he will receive from this book. So it all depends on a person's a man. And he man is about having faith conviction that he has this is how this is of benefit to me. This is true, this Koran is what has solutions for me, this is what I love. And when a person approaches the Quran with this kind of conviction and adoration than what we received from the Quran, only Higher, higher upon higher goodness upon goodness, this Quran will be a source of guidance for him, it will be a source of reminder and mercy for him. But if a person dislikes The Book of Allah doesn't believe in it with
conviction than what will happen even if the Quran is put before him, he will not receive any Lima. Any call from this book, say sufficient is Allah between me and you as a witness, he knows what isn't the heavens and earth, and they who have believed in falsehood. And this believed in Allah, it is those who are the losers. And they urge you to hasten the punishment. And if not, for the decree of a specified term punishment would have reached them, but it will surely come to them suddenly, while they perceive not. Because when a person is doing something wrong, when he's not caught, when he doesn't suffer, he begins to feel that he is doing right, and then he becomes arrogant and
stubborn on the wrong that he is doing. So Allah warns over here, that the punishment will come suddenly, while they perceive not. They urge you to hasten the punishment. And indeed, hell will be encompassing of the disbelievers. On the day, the punishment will cover them from above them, and from below their feet. And it is said, taste the result of what you use to do. punishment from above and below. The punishment of Hell is very serious. It is real. We don't think of it as real. We don't think of it as actual real pain, physical pain. We think that yes, perhaps some people yeah, they will be punished, but then eventually they will get used to it eventually they will finish No,
this punishment is real. It is ever enduring. And it is everlasting. And one should beg Allah that Oh Allah, you protect me from the fire. You save me from this terrible hellfire. I don't want to see it. I don't want to go in it. I don't want to be touched by it. The servants of Allah, the true worshipers of Allah, they bank a lot to protect them from the punishment of the Fire. We see this and the doors that Allah mentioned in the Quran, that how Allah servants, they ask Allah to protect them from the punishment of the Fire, we think of ourselves as guaranteed to be saved to be protected from the fire. Or if we think of the fire, we don't think that it is real punishment. It
is real punishment. The prophets all of a sudden used to seek forgiveness. He used to beg a lot to protect him from the fire, because this punishment is very, very severe. Look at this. The punishment will cover them from above them and from below their feet and this is fire. Fire. I don't know if you've seen images of people who have been struck by
The heat wave in different parts of the world, that how they're seeing pouring water on their heads. They're seeing, struggling to buy ice, struggling to find some shade, and really being afflicted by the intense heat of this world. The heat of this world. What do you think about the heat of the Hellfire, which is meant to be punishment?
What do you think about that? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, the person who will have the least punishment from amongst the Hellfire, on the Day of Resurrection will be a man under whose arch of the feet you know the arch of your feet, right the bend under that will be placed a smoldering Ember a burning coal. And because of that, his brain will boil, meaning the heat will be so intense that it will reach up to the head. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the fire will eat up the human body except the mark caused by the prostration, meaning the sudduth meaning the parts of the body which are used for servitude, the seven bones, the hands, the forehead, the knees, right
and the feed these parts of the body fire will spare the rest of it, they will be consumed. And what this shows to us is that there may be a person who performs regular prayers, who performs Salah because he performs to Jude. But because of the other actions that he does, and he is not seeking forgiveness from Allah and not seeking refuge with ALLAH against the fire, what will happen he will end up in hellfire. And so his body will be consumed burned by the fire and the only part spared will be which part the parts which touch the ground when a person is doing subdued.
So this is something that we need to really consciously ask Allah for that he or Allah saved me from the fire, this should be our regular draw. Every day we should make a law along a journeyman and not a llama in the role of becoming an ally seek your protection from the punishment of the Fire. Because the punishment of the Fire is indeed very painful. Allah says Yeah, everybody, all my servants, and levina armano those who have believed, indeed my Earth is spacious, so worship only me, meaning never compromise on worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why? Because the earth of Allah is vast. If you are not able to worship Allah in one place, then leave and go elsewhere, where you
find yourself stronger, and better able to worship Allah. This doesn't just mean that you should move from one country to the other. No, sometimes it means switching your company, switching your school, maybe switching your job, maybe whatever it may be. Any change that a person brings about in his life in order to better worship of law, than that is a form of hated law. And that is what we are being told to do. That if ever you find yourself weak in any place, in any situation, in any position, where you feel that you cannot worship Allah, then leave what is preventing you from Allah's worship, but don't leave the worship of Allah. Why? Because every soul will taste death. You
are not going to live in this life forever, then to us will you be returned and you will be answerable for what you have done, and those who have believed and unrighteous deeds, we will surely assign to them of Paradise, elevated chambers, elevated homes beneath which rivers flow wherein they abide eternally. Excellent is the reward of the righteous workers, workers, those who strove for Allah, Who are they? alladhina sabado we're allowed to be Mia, toa Kowloon, those who have been patient and upon their Lord, they rely.
So what are the two things that lead a person to Jenna, Southern and tawakkol in every matter of this Deen and every matter of the dunya also, every matter of Deen and every matter of dunya that for example, if a person is fasting, he is fasting with Subbu patiently for the sake of Allah and relying upon Allah not relying on the humongous hold that a person ate, or relying upon the 15 hours of sleep that he can manage to get in no tawakkol on who Allah azza wa jal and this is true with respect to Deen and also with respect to the matters of dunya. That when it comes to, for example, seeking cure, or for example, when it comes to earning money, earning an education, finding a
spouse, teaching your children, training your children, anything in life that a person could be involved in solving
And tawakkol those who bear patiently the hardships for Allah sake, and they rely upon Allah and reliance upon Allah means that they're striving for improvement. They're striving to better their situation. They're working to improve their condition. So those who work in this life strive in this life and as they do Arma they do suffer and tawakkol then these are the people who will be rewarded generously by Allah. What can a human but in letter Miller, his or her, and how many a creature carries not its own provision? When you see the birds migrating? Do you see them carrying their nests with them? Never. What do they have on their backs? Nothing? What do they have clutched in
their feet? Nothing. What do they have in their beaks? Nothing. Then how are they traveling from one part of the world to be other relying upon who Allah who provides them? Allah we have Zuko ha, Allah provides for it. What a year comb and Allah provides you also the Lord who provides all of these creatures, whether it is the ants, or the fish, or the birds, or the wild animals, whoever it may be, who provides for them, Allah. So the same Lord provides you also, these creatures, you don't see them carrying their food around, carrying their money around, carrying their homes around, and they go from one place to the other, constantly changing their homes, their dens their nests, and who
provides them food and shelter, no matter where they go. Allah provides them so why do you worry? Why do you worry? in Hades we learned that if the son of Adam were to run from His provision, which Allah decreed for him, the way he runs from death,
then his risk would reach him, his provision would certainly reach him, just as death reaches him. kind of person escaped death, can he no matter what he does, no matter what plan he comes up with, can he managed to escape death? No way. If it's not one accident, it will be some other disease, eventually a person will die. Likewise, if a person consciously strives to avoid the risk, the provision that Allah is sending his way can be avoided, no way he can never avoid it. What is meant to reach him will definitely reach him. Because Allah is he is the ultimate provider, the one who provides for every single creature. It's amazing how you don't see trees laden with berries and
fruits. But you see so many birds and so many squirrels running from here to there flying from here to there. Where are they getting their food from? A lot more of them. Allah is providing them. It's amazing how little little creatures they're storing their food for the winter months. Where do they find it from? How do they find it? How are these little little bodies, little bodies so vulnerable? living in so much danger, but yet Allah provides them. So why do you not have faith in Allah? trust in Him, He will provide you well, who was sent me earlier, and he is the hearing the knowing, so ask him for what you need, and he knows what you need. If you ask them who created the heavens and the
earth and subjected the sun and the moon? They will surely say Allah, then how are they diluted? If he is the one who's doing all of this, then how can they forget him? How can they not have trust in Him? How can they despair in him? A lovely up super rich Kalima, Yeshua, amen. Everybody, welcome, Allah. Allah extends provision for whom He wills of his servants and restricts for him. Indeed, Allah is of all things knowing meaning of there's constriction in risk, then in that is also Allah's wisdom. And if Allah has expanded the provision for a certain slave of his, then in that is also his wisdom. So this is all ullas Division, so do not be angry, rather ask him with patience, having
faith in him. And if you ask them, who sends down rain from the sky, and gives life thereby to the earth after it's lifelessness Who does that? Allah does that. They would surely say Allah say Alhamdulillah All praise is for Allah, but most of them do not reason. It's amazing how you go to sleep at night, there's no signup rain. And you wake up in the morning and you see it's all wet outside, the rain came it fell without even you knowing about it. And Allah, He brought the dead land back to life without even you realizing it does
And it happened so often, that you have plants outside and you forget to water them. And then when you go outside, you see they're still alive. In fact, they're better than how you saw them last. Why? Because Allah has been sending rain, keeping those plants alive. If this was left to us, then what would happen not a single plant would be alive today. Believe me, not a single plant would be alive today.
But Allah is the one who brings life to the dead land. He is the one who keeps his creation alive. You don't. He is the one who provides for his creation. You don't. Your provision also depends on a law
