How y'all doing?
No matter who went to Somalia, Sudan Karim and my birth Ruta Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
Allahu Allah be wasa deadly Sani weslo Salima taco v. We will begin from Salt yacine
us have a look at
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim In the Name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, be Especially Merciful, lovely blown Mathurin us haben. Korea and present to them and example, the people of the city when the messengers came to it, when we sent to them to, but they denied them. So we strengthen them with a third messenger. And they said, Indeed, we are all messengers to you, the people said, You are not but human beings like us, and the Most Merciful has not revealed anything, you are only telling lies. Three messengers came to them, one after the other. What happened? The people denied the messengers, they called each and every one of them a liar. And notice this was not one messenger
came, he left and then another messenger came No, this was three messengers together at the same time. Because you see, when you hear something coming from only one individual, you have reason to doubt. But if the same message you're hearing, not just from one person, but from three people, then you have no reason to doubt over here. But what happened, the people refuse them. The messenger said, Our Lord knows that we are messengers to you. And we are not responsible except for clear notification. They said, Indeed, we consider you a bad omen. If you do not desist, we will surely stone you, and they will surely touch you from us a painful punishment. This is something so
hurtful, that when somebody says that you are a bad omen for us, what does that mean? That since you have come, you have only brought problems in our lives, you have only brought difficulty to us that you are bad luck. The fact is that there is no bad luck. anything bad or good that happens in a person's life is by whose will Allah will, and I left us with good and with bad, but to blame somebody that you are the root cause of all our problems. This is something very hurtful. And they said that if you do not stop, we're going to kill you. The messenger said, Your ohlman is with yourselves, meaning it's just in your head. You think that we have brought you a bad omen? It's in
fact with yourselves? Is it because you are reminded? Meaning Why are you so angry with us or upset with us that you're willing to kill us? Is it because we reminded you rather you are a transgressing people, and they're came from the farthest end of the city. Amen. Running. He said oh my people, follow the messengers. Follow those who do not ask
Any payment, and they are rightly guided, we see that where the whole nation denied the messengers what happened unless and one person, one person from so far away, who believed in the prophets? And he said, and why should I not worship he who created me, and to whom you will be returned? Should I take other than Him false deities, while if the Most Merciful, intense for me some adversity, their intercession will not avail me at all, nor can they save me. Indeed, I would then be in manifest error. Indeed, I have believed in your Lord. So listen to me, it was said enter Paradise. He said, I wish my people could know of how my lord has forgiven me and placed me among the honored, we see
that when the people rejected the prophets, three prophets that were sent to them, Allah subhanaw taala held the profits by sending them a person from such a foreign place who believed in them. And he didn't just believe in the profits, but he also told the people to believe in the profits. And we see that this was no ordinary step. This was basically putting his own life in danger. Because earlier, the people had said to the prophets that if you do not stop, we're going to kill you. Were going to stone you to death. So when this man came and spoke in support of the prophets, what happened? The people killed him, they killed him, they didn't spare his life. And we see that Allah
subhanaw taala loved this deed of this person so much that as soon as he was killed, immediately, it was sad. Although Liliana entered Ghana, he was admitted into paradise. Now we see that apparently, it was a terrible and that this person, he speaks the truth, and he is robbed of his life. Apparently, this was very sad. And but in reality, this was a beautiful beginning. This was his beginning were in Jannah. And this is something that we need to remember that many times, people look at things that are going on in a person's life, and they're creating him. But in reality, his status near Allah is very great. And we see that this person when he's admitted into janma, he does
not forget his people. He still says, I wish they knew. I wish they knew the reward that my lord has bestowed upon me. Why is it that he wants them to know that they too would believe this is sincerity? This is sincerity. What happens with this generally, is that when we win in something, immediately we look down at those who we have defeated. Immediately, we look down at them, even if it is something as small as getting ahead of someone while driving. I mean, we really look down on others, but look at this great man, that how he's wishing for people that I wish they knew.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah gives wealth to those whom he loves, and also to those whom he does not love. But he gives a man only to those whom he loves. Verily, when Allah loves a servant, he gives him faith, He bestows him with faith. So this person, he had sincerity in him, you can see what a big heart This man had. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala bestowed him with faith, and greater than that is the blessing of the sweetness of faith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, He who performs three meaning he who does three actions will taste the sweetness of faith, what are they, the one who worships Allah alone, who, the one who
worships Allah alone. Secondly, that he believes that there is no god worthy of worship, but Allah and he lives that he lives that lifestyle, that there is no one worthy of my love my attention, other than who Allah subhanaw taala. And thirdly, he gives a cat of his wealth, happily, which is mandatory on him every year, meaning every year that he has to give the cat he gives it how happily not begrudgingly. So the person who comes forward in the way of Allah in this way, that even if he has to give his life, he gives it happily, even if he has to give a part of his Well, he gives it happily, even if he has to give up some of his sleep he gives it happily. This is what really
enjoying the sweetness of faith. This is really relishing faith because this person has no resentment in his heart. rather he loves a lot and he loves to do whatever a last panel doctor wants from him, a Buddha rodilla moron who said that I asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that what is it that saves the servant from the fire and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Amen bill. It is faith in Allah. So when a person has been granted faith, then this is truly a huge blessing of Allah and those who are deprived of faith, then they are truly deprived. Allah says and we
did not send down upon his people after him any soldiers from the heaven, nor would we have done so it was not but one shout, and immediately they were extinguished, meaning just one shout was sufficient to destroy all those people. Yeah, has rotten Island, a bird, how regretful for the servants, or what a pity there did not come to them any messenger, except that they used to ridicule him, Have they not considered how many generations we destroyed before them, that they to them will not return. The fact is that this life is only one chance that we have. And once a person dies, he's not returning to this world. So this life is so critical that we make use of the days that Allah has
given to us over here of the nights that Allah has given to us over here, the opportunities that Allah has blessed us with over here. Why, because when a person leaves, he's not coming back. And indeed, all of them will yet be brought present before us, and assigned for them as the dead Earth, we have brought to it life and brought forth from it grain, and from it, they eat. And we placed there in gardens of palm trees, and grape vines and cause to burst forth, they're from some springs, meaning if you want to see a las favors, if you want to recognize a law, just look around you just look at how much rain fell, that they may eat of his fruit, and their hands have not produced it. So
Will they not be grateful? Like really the blessings that we enjoy? What is it that we have made of all these blessings that we use? Did we make the fruits did we make the grain? Did we make the trees not at all? Exalted is He who created all pears because every creature What does it need? It needs a pair. Every creature is incomplete without its pair. Because in pairs, what happens? The creation it completes one another it complements one another perfect one another. For example, if you have one shoe, one shoe, what good is it to you one sock even? What good is it to you what happens when you get a hold in one sock? The other sock you keep it for some time thinking that perhaps someday
you'll use it but eventually you get rid of it because it's no use it's useless. So this is the reality of the creation we are incomplete we are imperfect. But Allah azza wa jal, he is the only one who is one unique. Exalted is He Who has created all pairs from what the earth grows and from themselves, and from that which they do not know. Meaning, it's quite possible that there is a creation whose spare we do not know. But it certainly has a pair. And a pair doesn't necessarily mean that it has to be exactly of the same type. It could be something completely different, but it complements the other it completes the other. Like, for example, the moon is no moon without the
sun, or is it? Is it? No, the moon has no light of its own without the sun. Even though there's a huge difference between the sun and the moon, but the sun and the moon complement each other, they complete one another. What is the day the day will not be known and recognized except with its opposite, which is the night so everything is in pairs. And assigned for them as the night we removed from it the light of day. So they are left in darkness. And the sun runs on course toward its stopping point. That is the determination of the exalted in mind the knowing and the moon we have determined for it phases until it returns appearing like the old date stock so thin and fine,
barely visible in the sky. It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day. But each in an orbit is swimming. It is moving, it is moving in its own orbit. And each is within its own limits, that we don't see the sun and the moon colliding into each other. We don't see that happening. Why because for each is a role for each is a task and each is obediently doing what it is required to do. And in our lives also, we can only be productive and useful and beautiful when we recognize what our roles are, what our obligations are. And we perform them to the best of our ability without interfering into the work of other people.
And assigned for them is that we carry the forefathers in relationship and we created for them the likes of it, which they arrived, meeting new Elisa Lam, the survivors with him, what is it that they were saved on the ship? And today also, what is it that people ride when they have to cross the water, various forms of vessels that help us transport and travel from one place to another
and we created for them the likes of it.
Which they ride? And if we should will, we could drown them, then no one responding to a cry would there be for them, nor would they be saved? Just imagine in the middle of the ocean could be a boat that just turns over. Who was it that hears their screaming? Who is it that saves them. So the fact that we are safely able to travel from one part of the world to the other, this is exclusively Allah's mercy, except as a mercy from Us and provision for a time. But when it is said to them, beware of what is before you and what is behind you. Perhaps you will receive mercy, meaning take lesson from history. take lessons from the past, take lesson from what is going on in the world
right now. From the accidents that happened today, that you witness that you come to know of honor so many sad news that we come to know of so many disasters, so many casualties. So these events that happen these incidents that happen, they are to teach us a lesson, when it is said to them take a lesson. Beware of what is before you and what is behind you. Perhaps you will receive mercy. What happens and no sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord, except that they are from it turning away. The fact is that a believer lives this life with his eyes open. He is very observant. And he takes a lesson from everything that is around him. Even if something happens far from him. Still,
when he comes to know of it, he takes lesson from it. He doesn't turn a blind eye to the rain that falls and the trees that grow and the accidents that happen. No he takes lesson from that he realizes from all of these incidents, the greatness of his Lord, his own vulnerability, his own dependence and need of Allah need of the Creator. And this is the reason why he continues to worship His Lord preparing for the hereafter. And when it is sent to them spend from that which Allah has provided for you. Those who disbelieve say to those who believe should we feed one whom if Allah had willed, He would have fed you or not, but in clear error, what logic that if a loved one or to feed
them, he would have fed them, why should we feed them? Well, the fact is that Allah has tested them the poor by giving them less and Allah has tested you by giving you more and they say, when is this promise if you should be truthful, they do not wait except one blast which will seize them while they are disputing. And they will not be able to give any instruction nor to their people can they return, meaning they cannot leave any last minute messages. They cannot even send any last minute messages and they cannot return to their family. This is how suddenly death comes and the horn will be blown. One will feel of his soul. And this is referring to the second blowing of the trumpet and
at once from the graves to their Lord, they will hasten meaning at once when the Trumpet will be blown, what will happen? Immediately resurrection will take place and people will rush to the place of gathering. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said since the time that the angel who is to blow the trumpet was given his task, he has been ready with his eyes set up on the throne, afraid that his eyes might be deviated when the order comes. So the angel is Rafi who is appointed to blow the trumpet. How is he right now ready? Waiting? Where are his eyes set upon the throne? Meaning he's waiting for the command from a law that alone will order him and immediately instantly he will
blow the trumpet. And as he will blow the trumpet, the Day of Judgment shall be established. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, How can I be at ease? When the angel of the trumpet has placed his mouth upon the trumpet? He has placed his mouth where upon the trumpet, bent his forehead and is awaiting the command of his Lord. How can I be addressed? How can I be addressed? This is just like if there is somebody sitting in the car with their hand on the keys, and you are still outside? Can you walk slowly? What are you going to do? You're going to run because a car is going to start any second. Any moment. This is like you're running to catch a bus and the bus driver is
sitting waiting with his foot on the brake. And all he needs to do is just release his foot and then that said the bus is going to move. So what are you going to do at that time? Walk slowly. How do you find people? When they're running to the bus stop? Do you see them running? Yes, they're running running with all their might with all their effort rushing to get to the bus stop so that they can get into the bus. Isn't that so? So this is our reality. We cannot delay until tomorrow to perform a good deed. We cannot wait until we are 15 until then
20 to perform a good deed, when we learn about something, and we have the ability, we have the opportunity, then we have to make use of this time right now. Because we never know when death is going to come to us. And at once from the grave to their Lord, they will hasten, they will say, Oh, woe to us, who has raised us up from our sleeping place. What does this reply indicate these words, what do they indicate that the stay in the graves will seem like rest to the people, and we learned that in the graves will also be punishment? So why is it that when people will rise from their graves, they will say, who woke us up from our sleeping places, because the resurrection, it's hard,
it's punishment, its severity is far worse than what people saw in their graves, they will be told, this is what the Most Merciful had promised. And the messengers told the truth, it will not be but one blast, and at once they're all brought present before us. So today, no soul will be wronged at all, and you will not be recompense except for what you used to do in the US haberl genitalium official, in fact, Jihoon indeed the companions of Paradise that Day, will be amused in joyful occupation, meaning what will be their occupation that day, in general, only joy and pleasure, that is their occupation, they and their spouses in shade, reclining on adorned couches. For them,
they're in this fruit and for them is whatever they request, handpiece, a word from a merciful Lord, meaning in general, all that a person needs to do is wish that's it. In general, a person doesn't even need to place his order. He doesn't even need to do that. whatever they wish, whatever they request, whatever they imagine, it will be brought to them. We don't know how to use that once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was narrating something, and a Bedouin was sitting with him. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said one of the inhabitants of Paradise will ask Allah to allow him to cultivate the land.
Can you imagine a person in genda who will say Oh Allah, please allow me I want to plant my garden. Alright, Why will he say that because a person who loves to do these things in this life? Then, of course, when they want to go to gender they want to fulfill their desire. So even if their desire is to work, what will happen alone will ask him are you not living in the pleasures you like? Meaning Why do you need to work and plant your own garden? He will say yes, but I like to cultivate the land. I like to plant my own garden. It's my hobby, I find pleasure in it, I like to do this, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam added when the person will be permitted, then he will sow the seeds and
the plants will grow up and get ripe, ready for reaping and so on. Till it will be as huge as a mountain within a wink. Meaning within the blink of an eye, what will happen, the seed will germinate the plant will come out the fruit will grow it will be ripe ready for picking and so big so much produce that that produce will be like that of a mountain within how much time
blink of an eye. This is so quickly a person's wishes will be fulfilled. And Allah will then say to him, also Nevada, take here you are gather all of this nothing satisfies you. Anything you agreed your desire is astonishing. When is it that you will be satisfied. So what this hadith illustrates is that gender is the home of desires, whatever it may be, whatever it may be, whatever that desire may be, we learned that also engender a person when he will desire to have a child in gender. And this is something that's natural, especially for women, they love to have children, many women, they love to have children. And the reason why they find childbearing difficult is what the difficulties
that come along with childbearing and looking after children. So when a person will wish to have a child in general, then it will be carried in pregnancy born and complete in his aging in an hour. Meaning a person will have the child the exact age that he wants the child to be alright. Because complete is aging, meaning the aging that is according to the wishes of the person in general. Meaning if he wants a newborn or can you born five month old, okay, five to 10 month old, okay? 12 month old 15 month old, whichever age because you see there are different ages that people like. Like sometimes you want to raise your child that please don't grow anymore. Never Grow up because
you're so cute as you are. So imagine in general, a person can have children so quickly
right within an hour, within an hour, long field half marathon, one of whom may have their own, they will have whatever they wish, whatever they asked for. All they need to do is just wish and their wishes will be fulfilled and be a word from a merciful Lord, then he will say, but stand apart today or you criminals, the criminals will be told you stand apart, meaning even though you had been mixed with the believers in the world, today, you'll be separated. Did I not enjoin upon you all children have Adam, that you should not worship the shavon? For indeed he is to you a clear enemy, why did you listen to him? And that you worship only me, this is a straight path, and he had already led
astray from among you much of creation, so did you not use reason? This is the Hellfire, which you are promised, you are warned of this, enter to burn they're in today for what you use to deny what this ayah clearly states is that those who deny they will not make it to paradise, those who do cover they will make it where what is their destination hellfire. This may be careful of Allah, denying Allah, denying the messengers, one messenger even denying the shadow or denying any of the tenets of faith or denying any part of what Allah has revealed. So for example, denying that there is something such as Salah that a person says yeah, I believe in Allah. But But I don't believe that
there's anything such as solid that a Muslim has to observe this is also a kind of goofy, or denying that for example, hijab, that a person says, No, there is no hijab. No, there is hijab, it's clear in the Quran and Sunnah. It's different that a person finds it difficult to do. And they say that I don't find myself ready to do it right now. And I hope I will do it someday, this is not covered cover is when a person says oh, there is no hijab, there is no Salah, there is no fasting, there is no Ramadan, this is covered. And this kind of cover is something that would lead a person to hell. We learned the profits of a lot of upset on the Day of Judgment, that what will happen is that an
announcement will be made, that let every nation follow what they used to worship. So the people of the cross will go to their cross, and the people of idols will go to their idols, and the people of every God, meaning every fall today it will go with their God, still there will remain those who used to worship Allah, both the obedient ones, and the disobedient ones. And also, some people have the scripture that people have the book, the Jews and the Christians, then hell will be presented to them as if it were a mirage, then it will be set to the hood. What did you use to worship? They will say we used to worship as the son of Allah, one of the prophets whom they associated with a law.
This is a particular group of the Jews. Now they don't even exist, or perhaps they do, but this kind of belief did exist at one point in time in the Jews. So it will be set to them. You are liars, for Allah has neither a wife nor a son, what do you want? Now? They will reply, we want you to provide us with some water, then it will be set to them drink and they will fall down in hell instead, then it will be set to the Christians What did you use to worship? They will reply we used to worship Isa the son of Allah, it will be said you are liars. For Allah has neither wife Nora son, what do you want now, they will say we want you to provide us with water, it will be sent to them drink and they
will fall down in hell instead. So the fact is that anyone who does go for even if it is the cover of one messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is something that will ultimately lead the person were to help five. This is why we should never ever be in doubt and think that oh everybody will go to Paradise eventually somehow or the other. This is something very serious Eman is a very serious matter. We need to be careful about our faith and also the faith of others.
