Is there not in hell a residence for the disbelievers? Aren't they deserving of it, and the one who has brought the truth and they who believed in it, those are the righteous, those are the ones who truly fear Allah. Those are the ones who will be saved from the punishment. We see that in this world, majority of the people, they entertain incorrect thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala. And these thoughts, they turn into beliefs. And we see that majority of the people what they believe about
Allah is based on pure falsehood and mere assumptions. We see that every ideology about a loss of panel data that is based on untruth, what is it, it is a lie? It is falsehood. So it is basically lying about Allah subhanaw taala meaning having any thought, any faith, any belief about Allah that contradicts reality, thinking of him, what he is not thinking about Allah what he is not, then this is lying about Allah subhanaw taala and we see that in every era, there have been people who have had false beliefs about Allah subhanaw taala. Shin is part of this gopher is part of this. atheism is also part of this, and this has been from the beginning. It's just that these beliefs have
transformed over time. But we see that many people in every era they have entertained incorrect beliefs, incorrect thoughts, false beliefs about Allah subhana wa Tada. This is why the first priority of a person should be to know his Lord, to recognize his Lord, that who is my Allah? Who is the one who made me who sent me here. Who is it that I worship? This is why Allah says in the Quran, that far lamb and the hula Illa Allah who you should have knowledge, that there is no god worthy of worship, but Allah. So this is of those matters that we must learn about, that we should not remain in any confusion about this, that who is Allah, what are his attributes? And when a person if he has
not come to know about who Allah really is, then what good was his life? What is the outcome of his life?
If he has spent years and years in this world, but he has not managed to recognize his creator, his maker, his master, then what use was his life? What good was his life? What did his life bring him? So we see that this is pure ignorance and pure loss if a person does not come to know about Allah subhanaw taala. So it should be our priority to learn about who Allah is. And we see that Allah has not left people to themselves that figure out who your Creator is, figure out yourself, why you are here who sent you here know, Allah sent prophets in every era to guide mankind. And then after the prophets ended, meaning Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam being the last messenger after him, Allah
subhanaw taala preserved his teachings, he preserved the Quran. And after the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we see that there have been numerous people in every era to spread the authentic teachings of the Quran and Sunnah. So when the truth comes to people, whether it was through the prophets, or it came after the prophets, we see that people have divided into two groups. One is a group of those who believe in the prophets of Allah, who believe in Allah the way they should believe in, and these people, unless as they are
the one who brought the truth, and the one who believed in it, who are they the moutoku, they're the ones who truly fear Allah, they are the righteous, they will be saved from punishment. And the other group of those who have rejected the truth, who have rejected correct belief in Allah, then Who are they? Allah says la Sufi, Johanna mammoth, well, Catherine, then such people, do they're not deserve to be in hell is that not the bullet that they deserve? Is that what they're not worthy off? Because if they have not recognized Allah, then what have they come to know? If they have not worshipped Allah, then what have they done in their lives with their lives? So for us, our number one priority
in life should be to know Allah to worship him to increase in our love, in our fear in our adoration of Allah azza wa jal, otherwise, we have not fulfilled the purpose of our existence. lahoma Yeshua owner in darabi him, those who do believe in Allah and lidija of his slick will set the copy those people Allah says they will be saved, and where will they be? They will be in Ghana, they will have whatever they desire with their Lord, because they recognize their Lord in the world in this life. So in the Hereafter, what will they get whatever they wish, that is the reward of the merci Nein of those who do good. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if you wish that Allah and His
Messenger should love you. If you wish that Allah should love you, His Messenger should love you. Then guard three characteristics. Firstly, truthful speech, be truthful. Be truthful. Meaning, listen to truth. Speak to the truth, believe in the truth, live by the truth. Secondly, return trusts, meaning if an Amana has been given to you, then look after it properly. And thirdly, be a good neighbor.
Be a good neighbor. These are three matters three qualities that make a person beloved to Allah, and they also make him beloved to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and number one is adhering to truth. Luca ferula, who are on whom a sweat, olevia Emmylou, that allowed me removed from them the worst of what they did, meaning, the righteous those who do believe in the truth, who affirm the truth, who live by it, then after all, they're human beings and the worst sins that they have committed. What does Allah say, Allah will remove those sins from them.
What a great good news. This is the worst sins, look at this, the worst of what they have done, Allah will clean their records, and he will reward them they're do for the best of what they used to do. So their worst sins will be finished, eliminated, then what do you think about the little since they too will be eliminated, and there will be according to the best deeds that they used to perform. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a believer will be brought to his Lord, the Exalted and glorious on the Day of Resurrection, and Allah will place upon him his side. And Allah will make him confess his faults and say, Do you recognize your faults? And that believer will
say, My Lord, I do recognize them, meaning you will admit why because he was truthful. He lived by the truth in this world and on the day of judgment when he will be asked about his sins, He will be truthful over there also. So Allah will say I can seal them
for you in the world, and today, I forgive them. And he will then be given the book containing the accounts of his deeds, and he will see that his sins are erased, and he will be given his reward according to the best of his deeds. This is true success. But this comes from what? From holding on to the truth from believing in the truth and holding on to it. Because many times it happens that we agree with the truth. We agree with what Allah has revealed with what he has commanded. But what happens in our practical life, what happens over there we fall short in obeying Allah. So this reward is for those who are left the jet a bit set up was Sundar kabhi. He confirms the truthfulness
of the words of Allah by living them, by practicing them by bringing them in his life, unless as la sala, who be cuffin. is Allah not sufficient for his servant? Yes, he is very much so. Why? Because he is the owner of all the treasures, he is the one in whose hand is everything. But sadly, instead of looking up to Allah, we look at people for help and support, that when we are in any weakness and any difficulty, we turn towards people looking at them, that who is it that will help me today? Who is it that will support me today? every prophet of Allah, what was his statement has been Allah, when there are multiple key ally is enough for me, and sufficient is he as a trustee, and the
prophets of Allah remembered a lot at the time of every need. So la sala will be coughing.
And yet, they threaten you with those other than Him, meaning they threaten you with others, with people with idols, or with false gods. And for us, what is the greatest fear people? It's amazing how young girls even if they want to pray, or young boy, even if he wants to pray, they're trying to take their Deen seriously, who frightens them, it's their own families that frighten them, frighten them of who have other people, that what are others going to say? If you put this hijab on, people are going to look at you, people are going to stare at you. People are not going to be happy, you're going to be the only person you how we Phonak they try to find new with those other than Him but the
fact is, that the one who really believes in Allah, He truly fears Allah also. And whoever Allah leaves a stray. For him, there is no guide, and whoever Allah guides for him, there is no one to mislead, no one can misguide him, even if he is all alone, even if he is in the midst of people who reject Allah, still, Allah will keep him guided. So isn't it necessary that we keep asking Allah for guidance? Is not Allah Exalted in Might and owner of retribution? And if you ask them, who created the heavens and the earth, they will surely say Allah, then Have you considered what you invoke besides Allah? If Allah intended me harm? Are they removers have any difficulty? Meaning if Allah
was to inflict harm on me, can those besides Allah remove that harm from me? No way, if he intended me mercy, are there with holders of His mercy. Because you see, sometimes a person is in difficulty and the whole world is trying to help him. The whole world is trying to rescue him. But that pain, that illness cannot be taken away unless Allah takes that difficulty away from a person. Likewise, a person is receiving some mercy from Allah, something valuable, something beneficial, and others are not happy. They're not happy at all. Can that be removed? No way. So we see that Allah subhanaw taala, he teaches us all has to be Allah, trust upon Allah and say, sufficient for me is Allah in
every worry in every difficulty in every trial, I do not need to go to any day at any rate, Allah, Allah is enough for me, my lord is enough for me, upon Him alone rely the wise rely errors, meaning those who truly rely, who is it that they rely upon? Allah soprano, tada and they're the ones who are successful, because relying upon other than Allah that is not reliance, relying upon other than Allah, is it reliance, no way. Like, for example, if a person is spawning, and he tries to hold on to a spider's web, is that reliance? Would you call that reliance? Would you call that strategy? No way. What is it? It's a pathetic attempt. It's useless. It's not going to get a person anywhere. A
person is making a fool of himself, likewise relying upon anyone other than Allah. It is as if a person is holding on to is reaching out
For a cobweb, when he's falling, so has to be on law upon him, our lay here to our Colonel matava chiune upon him should those who rely rely upon say, oh my people work according to your position, for indeed I am also working and you are going to know to whom will come a tournament disgracing him and on whom will descend an enduring punishment. Indeed, We sent down to you the book for the people in truth. This Quran is for who for all of mankind. So the question is that how many people are we taking this on to? You know, this is something that we really need to take seriously. Allah says that inner and zelner are legal kita leanness for all people. So how many people Am I taking this on
to? So whoever is guided, it is for the benefit of his soul. And whoever goes astray, only goes astray to its detriment. And you are not a manager over them. Meaning if you call somebody to the Quran, and they benefit, good for them, but if they don't, they're not going to harm you. So why not at least try and call people to the book of Allah? The question is, how is it that we can take the Quran to other people? How is it that we can tell them about what is in the Quran? How can we do that?
I'm asking you, it's not a rhetorical question. So I really need answers from you. How is it that we can take the Quran to people so that they get to know what Allah has revealed? Okay, so first of all, at least learn ourselves this is the first step because if we haven't known what is in the Quran, what can we tell other people about the Quran? You know, for example, we say to others that Oh, Quran is the book of Allah, it's the most truthful book. And when the people ask us questions about the Quran, we have no idea how to answer them. Or we say that we believe in the book of Allah. And when we're asked, okay, what does it say? I don't know. So the first step is that we must come
to know about what is in the Quran, this should be the priority of every Muslim man and every Muslim woman, this should be our priority, then we think about it school, is it not necessary? It is right? How many children who say I don't want to go to college, I don't want to go to university and what did the parents say? No way. You don't have a choice. You have to go. Likewise, high school, even so many children, they're like, I don't want to go, but what happens? The parents, they don't give them a choice. So likewise, on is something that we should not give ourselves a choice about, should I learn about it? Or should I not learn about it? No, we must learn about it. Okay, now, what's the
next step? How can we practically tell other people about what is in the Quran?
Yes, that when somebody is going through a particular issue, and then you tell them about what is in the Quran, you relate what they're going through in their lives with the Quran, then what happens? They find guidance from the book of Allah. Okay, so bringing the Quran in our conversations, that is one way, what's another way?
Okay, our actions, our behaviors, what else? How else can we tell people about what is in the Quran? How about giving them a Quran
so this Ramadan, and hamdulillah there are many organizations who are preparing, for example, new Muslim gift boxes, or for instance, Koran for the purpose of Dawa and it doesn't really cost much $5 $10 maximum. So see where you can contribute inshallah, even if one person is guided through you, that is better for you, then 100 red camel, that's better for you. I equals 100 a lot. This class also is an attempt to get to know about what is in the Quran. So we call ourselves how about telling somebody else also inshallah, because Alhamdulillah we're reaching the end. So make sure that you call at least one more person, maybe your daughter, your cousin, your niece, your sister, whoever it
is, call them 100 Ella, now schools are off. Many mothers are at home, and 100 a low over here. And I know that we also have a children's program, running parallel to this class to make it easier for women. Because generally women find it difficult to go to classes because of children. We cannot even go and listen to a hotline peace. So hamdulillah here in Charlotte, the kids can also enjoy and we can also get to study Quran in peace, inshallah. So make sure you take this message forward. Likewise, we share things on our public profiles and all of that online, on social media sharing something from the Quran also, because Allah says that in Angela alagille kita Lin Nancy will help.
It is for the people. So it would be unfair, if we keep this treasure to ourselves, this would be injustice. Allah takes the souls at the time of their death, and those that do not die He takes during their sleep, meaning in sleep, our soul also departs partially
leaves the body partially. This is why sleep is a sister of death. It's very similar to death. Because when a person is dead, does he talk? Does he listen? No. Can he eat and drink and walk? No. And likewise a person who is asleep is the same way can they walk sometimes people sleep walk, but they cannot recall what they were saying where they were going. So it's like a dead person basically. Now this is a sign that Allah subhanaw taala shows to us daily. He puts us to sleep and he wakes us up. So sleep should remind us of death. And the neurons that the profits or losses that I'm taught us to say before we fall asleep, they also remind us of death. What is it that we say
before we sleep Allahumma Bismillah AR Muto or wismec Aloma Moto, in your name idi and in your name, I shall rise likewise we learned the profits on a loss and I would say bismi cannot be well back to Jambi what we can offer who in M sector and FC from him. In m sector and FC if you retain if you keep my soul meaning you don't send me back then for him her show mercy to it. Well in autocentre have a follow habima follow up are you by the Casali hain you see that there's something that we cannot control, sleep is that something we can control? No. Where is it that we fall asleep sometimes in the most awkward positions in the most awkward places, daily we experienced death.
Sleep is something that reminds us that death is real, it is coming. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he would wake up in the morning, he would say Alhamdulillah Hilary ohana, ba de la mattina la handschuh All Praise to Allah who gave us life after he caused us death. Also we learned the prophets of the laws and and would say Alhamdulillah Hillary iPhone if you just study what de la rue de La Nina Lee be decree that all praise to Allah who kept my body in a good condition. And he returned my soul to me and allow me to remember him. So these are all the doors that we can save before sleeping and also on waking up. And on hamdulillah the other app which is free for Apple,
Android, you can search for it in Sharla in that is also a section of dogs before sleeping and doors on waking up. So make sure you benefit from this treasure. Because it's a way of remembering a lot before we sleep and after we wake up because generally what happens we are in bed lying in bed waiting to fall asleep. So that the best time to remember Allah
then he keeps those for which he has decreed death and releases the others for a specified term. Indeed in that are Signs for people who give thought, indeed, and that are Signs for people who give thought so reflect on sleep, that even our sleep we want to make everybody and when we wake up, we want to make use of the time that we are awake in amid the human donella issue. Or have they taken other than Allah as intercessors say, even though they do not possess power over anything, nor do they reason say to Allah belongs the right to allow intercession entirely To Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, then to Him you will be returned. And when Allah is mentioned
alone, the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter shrink with a version. But when those worshiped other than him I mentioned, immediately they rejoice. This is the state of the machine. And also many people who claim to be Muslim, that when only a Koran is mentioned, only Allah is mentioned. They say oh, this is boring. But when the stories false stories of certain individuals are mentioned, made up stories, then they find it very amusing. They find it very attractive, and that is what they enjoy. But only one core arm is mentioned. They're not interested. Colella, Hama, Falco sama what you will say, Oh Allah, Creator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen
and the witnessed, you will judge between your servants concerning that over which they used to differ. You see, there's so many issues, so many differences in life to which there seems to be no solution by for example, family issues. Now, why should a person to get caught up in these problems? No, some things Yes, you can resolve but other things, you cannot solve them. So what should you do? rely upon Allah and ask him for guidance. And if those who did wrong had all that is in the earth entirely, and the like of it with it, they would attempt to ransom themselves thereby from the worst of the punishment on the Day of Resurrection, and they will appear to them from a law that which
they had not taken into account, whether there are homes a year to Makkah Sabu and they will appear to them that
evils they had earned, and they will be enveloped by what they used to ridicu. This is so frightening. Imagine all of a person's sins are displayed before him, the sins that he had forgotten, that he didn't even consider to be sin, all will appear, and a person will be surrounded enveloped by what he used to ridicule, or what he used to mock at. Because today, we have freedom. When we wake up from sleep, we think, you know, we have the freedom to do whatever we please. And so we misuse the freedom that Allah subhanaw taala has given us. And because of that, we mock at others, we make fun of other people, we ridiculed the truth. We look down on the Koran, we don't
give attention to the vicar of Allah. These are all big mistakes, which will haunt a person on the Day of Judgment, surround a person, not let him get away. Because this is reality. You see in this life, what happens, we do certain things, and we completely overlook them. We say certain things, and we don't even think about them. And when somebody reminds us of our mistakes, we say Quiet, quiet, quiet. Don't say it. Don't talk about it. Sometimes children remind us, or sometimes our friends remind us, has it ever happened that people remind you of the things that you used to do while you were a child?
Or maybe 10 years ago? The silly things that you did? Do we like to hear those stories? No way? Not at all. So imagine on the Day of Judgment, a person sins will be displayed before him. So remember, this freedom that we have right now is for very, very limited amount of time. So let's not misuse it. Let's use it in obedience to Allah. And when adversity touches man, any kind of adversity, poverty, illness, some worry, what does he do, he calls upon us, then when we bestow on him a favor from us, he says, I have only been given it because of my knowledge, meaning whatever he has, he begins to think it was because of his own effort. He forgets a law's gift and thinks of himself, he
gives credit to himself. He gives credit to his own efforts. He gives credit to people do the things in this world, for the information that he found for the knowledge that he had, and he forgets to thank Allah soprano, tada, he says in number 82, who I learned,
I have this job because of my degree. Well, we know people who have big degrees, but they don't have good jobs. A person may be very knowledgeable in their field, very knowledgeable, but what job do they have? What rank Do they have hardly anything. So the fact is that whatever blessings we enjoy, when any hardship is turned into ease, when any problem is taken away, remember, this is by Allah's mercy, not just because of our efforts, our efforts, in fact, are a part of Allah's mercy, part of Allah's mercy on us, because how many people there are, for whom, literally, their success is in front of them, all they need to do is just put in a little bit of effort, but do they know they
don't? Clever minds, intelligent people, but they're not interested in studying, they're not interested in working, they're not interested in pursuing something big in life. They don't want to do it. Right. So the fact that we got the right information, we got the right kind of people, we got the right opportunities, and then we could actually benefit from them. All of this is allows gifts upon us. Allah says rather it is a trial, but most of them do not know. Most of them do not know that this was a trial that Allah had put them in. those before them had already said similar words, but they were not availed by what they used to earn. What happens when a person receives something
good in this life, he begins to think Oh, it was because of me. My effort. I'm the best. Right? I'm so hardworking. I'm so smart. I'm so intelligent. Well, people before said bigger words. But what happened? Did their education did their degrees did their career. did their money, save them from death? No. Did their power save them from problems in this life? No way. What happened for all Saba homes a year to Mecca Sabu. The evil consequences of what they earned struck them and those who have wronged of these people will be afflicted by the evil consequences of what they earned and they will not cause failure
