Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Subhan Allah He Memphis semi wati

00:01:11--> 00:02:03

wa who will rz zona, Hakeem whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth exalts Allah, and he is the Exalted in Might, the Wise, again, Allah has the speed is mentioned, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, some words that are repeated are such that the one who says them is never ever deprived. What are they? Subhan Allah He will hamdulillah he wanna either Illa Allah, Allahu Akbar, the one who says these words, then he is never ever deprived, how many times does he have to say them 100 times. So anytime some deprivation in this life bothers you, do this be Allah will fill you with contentment. It is he who expelled the ones who disbelieved among the People of

00:02:03--> 00:02:41

the Scripture from their homes at the first gathering, you did not think they would leave. And they thought that their fortresses would protect them from Allah, but the decree of Allah came upon them from where they had not expected, and he cast terror into their hearts. So they destroyed their houses by their own hands, and the hands of the believers. So take warning or people have vision. We learned that in Medina, there were several Jewish tribes when the prophets of Allah said and migrated there, one particular tribe, the banana leaf. Initially, they had a pact with the prophets of Allah, Islam with the Muslims, binding upon them to side with the Muslims and not be treacherous.

00:02:41--> 00:03:20

And part of the treaty was also that if people of Medina they happen to commit an accidental murder, then the blood money is going to be shared by everybody. So what happened instead of abiding by this contract by this treaty, they attempted to kill the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he went to them in order to ask them to contribute in the blood money that the Muslims had to pay. And the circumstances that basically led to a siege, where these Vanunu leave, they had to lock themselves up in their fortresses. And eventually, they were expelled from the city. And when they were expelled from the city, they were allowed to take with them whatever they wanted. So what did they

00:03:20--> 00:04:04

do? They took even the door frames and the window frames of their houses, they destroyed their houses, empty their own houses. Allah says Derek lesson or people have vision or people who see take lesson from this. What is the lesson that Allah subhanaw taala gives people many blessings. But if a person is continuously ungrateful, using the blessings against Allah and His Messenger, and especially he opposes the deen, then Allah will take revenge from him in a way that is very subtle, and unknowingly. Without even the person's control, those blessings will be taken away from him. We see over here that the balloon elite were established in Medina living there for many, many years

00:04:04--> 00:04:48

for decades. And they had fortresses, strong houses, strong structures and buildings. But what happened, everything was taken away from them. When, when they opposed Allah, when they left the dean, what happens is that we leave the dean for the sake of the dunya. So we lose the dean. And Allah takes dunya as well. So a person is left with nothing, no Dean, and no donia these people had the Scripture, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to them, but they rejected the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Apparently they made a pact with him, but behind him, they tried to hurt him. So a lot took away their populated homes. Can you imagine your own house? Breaking it? Can you imagine taking

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

everything out? Remember that as Muslims, our exam is with the dean, our glory is with the dean, our comfort is with the dean. It shouldn't be that when things are

00:05:00--> 00:05:24

Easy we follow the dean and as soon as things get difficult we leave the dean that as Ramadan goes our Dean also goes as from when Quran comes to an end, Quran is also closed and put away. No, not at all. Quran is for life. It is for life. Its recitation connection with the Quran should be a conscious regular, deliberate connection for which a person has to put an effort

00:05:26--> 00:06:04

and remember that he who holds on to the dunya ultimately he will lose, but the person who holds on to the Quran and Sunnah he shall remain guided. Allah says, if not that Allah had decreed for them evacuation, he would have punished them in this world and for them in the Hereafter is a punishment of the Fire. Allah will was that they be exiled at this point and later on, they should be punished and that is what happened. later on. The prophet SAW the loss and I'm also conquered cable, then it could be an OSHA por la hora Sula, that is because they opposed Allah and His Messenger, and whoever opposes Allah, then Indeed, Allah is severe in penalty, whatever you have cut down of their palm

00:06:04--> 00:06:41

trees or left standing on their trunks, it was by permission of Allah. And so he would disgrace the defiantly disobedient. You see, Lena that is mentioned very Lena is also a name. And Lina is basically fresh, lush, healthy date palm tree. And the believer is also like a date palm tree. And what happened was that during the siege, the Muslims, they had to cut down some of the date palm trees. Why? Because the orchards they naturally protected the fortresses from the sides. So they had to cut down some of the trees, first of all, in order to weaken the hearts of the banana lead. Because these trees were like their most precious belonging, these trees were hundreds of years old,

00:06:41--> 00:07:24

some of them and it takes many years for a date palm tree to be at the age where it produces fruit. So when these trees were cut down, what happened, the hearts of the banana leaf, they sank, they sank, they became weak, and eventually, the Muslims were able to launch a proper assault on them. And eventually the banana lead they surrendered. But you can imagine there was so much noise over this that all Muslims they kept down date palm trees. Well, the Mona Lisa were trying to kill the prophets of Allah sent him that was not a problem. And it happens today also, that a Muslim makes one mistake. And it's not even a mistake, but it's blown out of proportion. So Allah defends the

00:07:24--> 00:08:00

Muslims over here, and what ally restored of property to his messenger from them, you did not suffer for it in an expedition any horses or camels, but Allah gives His messengers power over whom He wills, and Allah is over all things competent. So eventually, when the banana lead were expelled their properties that they left behind, of course, they could not take their land with them, they could not take their trees with them, if they could, they will do that as well, but they couldn't. So they had to leave it behind. And this fell into the hands of the Muslims. But since this was a different kind of gain, and this is called fate, the law concerning It was also different from

00:08:00--> 00:08:36

minima, minima is that which is obtained in a battlefield, fate was something that was a result of the enemy's surrender. And what Allah restore to his messenger from the people of the towns, it is for Allah and for the messenger, and for his near relatives and orphans and the stranded traveler, so that it will not be a perpetual distribution among the rich from among you. Because you see, generally the vanilla would be distributed amongst those who participated in the battle, large portions would be given to them. But what about those who could not go to battle who were weak? So Allah says, that now this faith is not going to go to you, it's going to go to who to the entire

00:08:36--> 00:09:19

community, otherwise, wealth will be concentrated with just a few people, and whatever the messenger has given you, one como rasuluh woman, a woman who fenter who, whatever the messenger has given you take it and whatever he has forbidden you refrain from it and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is severe in penalty, any command, the messenger gives you take it, not just the Quran, but anything besides that also, what should you do? obey the messenger because it's coming from the messenger? Allah is telling us except from the messenger, and those who do not do so, in the Lucha de Horeb. Allah is severe in penalty the punishment is severe. Why the punishment for disobeying the Prophet? Is there

00:09:19--> 00:09:56

a punishment for disobeying parents? Is there Yes, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Allah is forbidden disobedience to others, we learn about the people of our off that how some people will be prevented from entering gemba why because on the one hand, they did great works like jihad, and on the other hand, they disobeyed their parents, so their matter will be deferred. You understand? Their matter will be delayed. So if disobeying parents is a sin, what do you think about disobeying the prophets on the line is Allah is his status not greater than that of our parents. So disobeying the prophets of Allah Islam is not something small. The prophets of Allah sent him said, If I forbid

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

you to do something, keep away from it. And if I order you to do something

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

thing then do have it as much as you can. The Fate meaning this particular booty that was acquired, Allah says this is for the poor immigrants who were expelled from their homes and their properties seeking bounty from Allah and His approval and supporting Allah and His Messenger, meaning for them as a share. Those are the truthful, Allah calls them truthful, and the hypocrites What are they called liars, and also for those who were settled in Medina and adopted the faith before them, meaning some for the answer also to the Menagerie, and the answer. They love those who immigrated to them, allies praising the unsought over here, the people of Medina, the Muslims of Medina De Anza,

00:10:40--> 00:10:53

they love those who immigrated to them and do not find any need any want in their hearts of what the immigrants were given. Meaning if the mohajir owner given something, the answer don't mind.

00:10:54--> 00:11:33

Does it ever happen with us that somebody is given a gift and we are not given? How do we feel extremely angry and offended? And look at the unsought because they have their homes in Medina, right? And the Mahajan had left everything in Makkah, they had come empty and the answer had shared their wealth with them. But of course, when somebody sharing with you, it's not the same as having something of your own, isn't it? So this is the time when the Mahajan were given and Allah praises the unsolved that the inside do not mind at all. And instead, what do they do? They give them preference over themselves even though they are in need, meaning the unsought are not millionaires,

00:11:33--> 00:12:17

they themselves are in need, but when it comes to their need and the need of the mohajir own, who is it that they give preference to, to the mohajir own? This is the that one sacrifices by leaving his home and the other sacrifices by giving his home and by preferring others over oneself. And without this feeding. Remember this feeling of mutual love mutual support, Islam? How would it spread our efforts for the deen? How will they prosper this kind of love and bonding is necessary sacrificing for each other. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also sacrificed what he needed for others. And there's so many examples. His life is a testament to that. If he wanted, he could have lived a comfortable

00:12:17--> 00:12:20

life with Khadija De La Nina with his family he could have

00:12:21--> 00:13:02

we learned that a woman once brought a Buddha This is reported in Buhari, a woman once brought a Buddha it's basically a square piece of cloth having a very beautiful edge. And she said that you are a pseudo law. I have woven this with my hands for you to wear. And it shows how the Sahaba also they showed their love and support for the prophets of Allah is Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam took it as he was in need of it. And he came to us this harbor thing, he came to us wearing it, and he was wearing it as a waste sheet, meaning he had worn it as an easel as a lower garment. One man he said the other suit Allah, this is so beautiful. Give it to me, please. And the Prophet

00:13:02--> 00:13:47

sallallahu Sallam agreed to give it to him. He sat with the Sahaba for some time. And then when he returned home, he folded that waste sheet. And he sent it to that man, even though he was in need of it. So the people said to that, man, why did you do that? Why did you ask the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for that child? You knew that he was in need of it. And you know that he would never ever turn anybody's requests down. So why did you ask him? You shouldn't have asked him. And he said by Allah, I only asked him so that it would be my shroud when I die. He He was also justified. He wanted that when he dies, and he's buried. He's buried in a garment that the provenance of the loss

00:13:47--> 00:14:25

and Once Upon a Time War, that's what he wanted for himself. But at the same time, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in need. So many times what happens if people ask you for something, and they don't know what you're going through? They don't know what you're going through. It's just your test over there that what do you do? Do you prefer yourself? Or do you prefer the other person? Do you sacrifice at that time for the other person? Do you consider the needs of others greater than your needs. So if someone asks us for what we need, do not refuse as much as possible, as much as possible. You know, sometimes it's not big things. It's just water right before the time of the hood

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

is going to end.

00:14:27--> 00:15:00

There's a little bit water left in the jug. Either you pour it or therefore it either you drink it or they drink it. So you are in need of it. They're also in need of it. A selfish person will say that I needed I get really thirsty. I didn't get to drink enough water. But a giving person will say Allah will take care of me and I will give to him. Allah is praising this quality of the Sahaba. And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul, it is those who will be the successful show whoever

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

is protected from short, he is successful. What is Sure? Sure is extreme greed and extreme stinginess, do want something very badly. And you want it so badly that a person doesn't want to give it away. He doesn't want to share it even a little bit. So whoever is protected from sha Allah says he is successful. And this means that if a person is living with Sure, can he be successful? Never ever so ask Allah to protect you from Sure. This should be one of our daily doors. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said stinginess and faith will never be combined in a Muslims hearts, stinginess and Amen, selfishness and email they can never be together, one will take over the other. The

00:15:40--> 00:16:21

Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said during the horrible ones, save yourself from shore. Save yourself from this greed and stinginess. For those who were before you were annihilated. They were destroyed because of Sure. It ordered them to be stingy. And in order for them to cut off their relationships with those who are nearest to them in relationship and they cut off and it commanded them to sin. So they said they disobeyed Allah. So this show has something very dangerous. We'll let the manager remember the him and there is a share also for those who came after them, meaning the believers will come afterwards later generations of believers saying little benefit lanell when he

00:16:21--> 00:16:48

when in alladhina, sub Hakuna Villa Eamon waneta geography kobina Lila Lila Dena Armand Ravana in Nakuru for Rahim, they say Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and put not in our hearts any resentment toward those who have believed our Lord, indeed, you are kind and merciful. This door also we can make a time for the purpose of seeking forgiveness from Allah.

00:16:49--> 00:17:29

You see the door that is mentioned here, that Oh Allah forgive us, and also forgive those believers who became Muslim before us who did good before us. And don't let there be in our hearts, any resentment, any bad feeling for another believer? When we think of people have a man we think of Sahaba, the righteous, knowledgeable, very righteous people, naturally, you will have love for them. Why? Because you don't know them. Right? You don't know them, you haven't met them. If you met with them, and you sat with them, and you lived with them, then because they're human beings, there would be things that you would get annoyed by. The real test is what the people that you're living with

00:17:29--> 00:17:41

alladhina amanu those believers that you're living with, that we are working with, that we are studying with. Do we have rancor for them? Do we have resentment for them? Do we have ill feelings in our hearts for them?

00:17:42--> 00:18:27

You see any person, any person that irritates you, and there are people who irritate you, annoy you, that you just see them. And it's just that their attitude, their behavior, or their style of work or their style of speech, it just drives you crazy. It's possible. But if they are believers, then we should not have this resentment in our heart for them. Any person that makes you upset, make the O Allah make space for this person in my heart for they're a believer. He's a believer, she's a believer, make space in my heart for them, made my heart so spacious that I can accept this person. You see some relations, you have to accept them. If you're a boss somewhere, and there are people

00:18:27--> 00:19:07

working for you, you don't like them? Can you fire them? Yeah, you can fire them. You can say you're fired, unlike you go away. But can you fire your brothers and sisters? You're fired from being my siblings? Can you do that? You can't. Can you fire your in laws? You can't? Can you fire your cousins? You can't You can't do that they're part of your life. You can't eliminate them from your life. This is a test at the hospital. Right? So for that we need to make Dora also in what a beautiful dorm Allah teaches us in the Quran, that Oh Allah, let there not be in my heart, any hatred, any bad feeling for a person who believes in you, for a person who believes in you that they

00:19:07--> 00:19:47

believe in you or Allah, I want to love them. The Fault may be in me. The problem may be in me the bias may be in me, clean my heart or Allah. Have you not considered those who practice hypocrisy, saying to their brothers, who have disbelieved among the People of the Scripture, if you are expelled, we will surely leave with you. And we will not obey in regard to you anybody ever and if you are fought, we will surely aid you. But Allah testifies that they are liars. These people are not sincere to Allah. They're not loyal to him, and they're not loyal to his messenger. Then such a person his loyalty is for nobody. Even those whom he says that they're his friends. This is

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

basically about Abdullah bin obeyed. Who went and told the banana leaf that stay here you don't need to go anywhere because initially banana leaf thought you know what Muhammad Salah was a mysterious we should go but what happened to Lebanon

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

They went to them and he said, stay, you don't need to go, you have my support, I'm with you, I got you covered. And then what happened, when they were in need of the loving away was nowhere to be found. He didn't show up at all. Allah says if they're expelled, they will not leave with them. And if they're fought, they will not aid them. And even if they should aid them, they will surely turn their backs then thereafter, they will not be aided.

00:20:25--> 00:20:56

And this is the reality of fake friends, false lovers who say, oh, I'll die for you. Really? Nobody's gonna die for you. Learn to my shadow Robert and fucile do Rahim Allah, you believers are more fearful within their breasts than alami. They're more afraid of you than they're afraid of Allah. That is because there are people who do not understand because a person who fears people more than Allah, then his mind, his intellect is deficient at some level, how can he fear the one who is smaller, and not the one who is greater.

00:20:57--> 00:21:34

They will not fight you all except within fortified cities, or from behind walls, their violence among themselves is severe. You think they're together, but their hearts are diverse. That is because there are people who do not use reason again assign of people who do not use reason is what that they are constantly in disagreements and conflicts and fighting with each other, because they don't know how to work out solutions. There is like the example of those shortly before them, they tasted the bad consequences of their affair, and they will have a painful punishment. The hypocrites are like the example of Shannon when he says tremendous belief. But when he disbelieves he says

00:21:34--> 00:22:19

indeed I am dissociated from you. Indeed, I fear Allah, Lord of the worlds What a liar. He doesn't actually fear Allah. Because if he did, he wouldn't have said the things he said to Allah. So the outcome for both of them is that they will be in the fire abiding eternity they're in and that is the recompense of the wrongdoers bad friends, remember, they will be together in hell. Yeah, you have Latina hamanako law, or you have believed fear Allah was talented enough, some academically hard, and that every soul look to what it has put forth for tomorrow. Tomorrow, not as in Saturday since today's Friday. But tomorrow as an after the day of this life is over. And what is that next

00:22:19--> 00:22:24

day the next chapter in your life in your existence? It is the time after death.

00:22:25--> 00:23:06

Life After Death. Allah says, Look at what you are sending forth for your life after death. Prepare for that. We're mostly concerned about tomorrow in this life, but the real tomorrow is what we need to be most worried and concerned about and that is life after death. What the hola fear Allah, again, Fear Allah which we needed both sides at the beginning and a thing and in order to prepare for the author. Otherwise we will slip we cannot have as the farmer begin with the fear of Allah and continue with the fear of Allah in order to remain steadfast. Indeed, Allah is acquainted with whatever you do, when at the corner, kalinina sulla hoffa and sell home and foster home and be not

00:23:06--> 00:23:52

like those who forgot Allah. So he made them forget themselves. A person who forgets God, who has he forgotten in reality himself, those are the defiantly disobedient, you see, when a person forgets a law. A person he forgets that he is the servant, he is a servant to Allah, then he does not even know himself, he does not even understand his own reality, when he is detached from Allah, then he becomes attached to other things and he is stuck in this quicksand of sin. This is why a person must remember a lot the most and not forget him. Anytime, you know we all need to think about who is it that I think most about what is it that occupies my mind my thoughts, my feelings, whatever it is,

00:23:52--> 00:24:13

each time it comes to your mind. replace that thought with a thought about a loss upon upon remember a lot at that time, lie yesterday was horrible. nury was horrible. Jan. Allah says not equal are the companions of the Fire and the companions of Paradise is how wilderness human fair is own. the companions of Paradise. They are the attainers of success.

00:24:15--> 00:24:19

People who will go to Jenna they are successful.

00:24:20--> 00:25:00

Low ends in the huddle Allah Javelin lotto eight who Hashimoto for the unmin Kashi Attila will call em sarona bluboo holliness la lomita Corona karoun. If we had sent down this Koran upon a mountain, you would have seen it humbled and coming apart from fear of Allah. This is what would happen to a mountain. If the Quran was revealed on a mountain if the Quran was given to a mountain to observe and to follow. And how are we man is such that he reads the whole Koran is nearing its completion, but the heart doesn't feel weighed down. Doesn't feel any pressure, the

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

hardness does not go away, the heart does not melt actions do not change situation does not improve, then what kind of love and relationship with the Quran is this? The real impact of the Quran is that it breaks you.

00:25:15--> 00:26:01

Koran breaks your ego, it crushes the idol of your knifes of your desire, the idol of your desire, it crushes your heart. So all false idols are shattered, and a person is broken, and then fixed for who, for Allah. And these examples we present to the people that perhaps they will give thought, we all need to give thought to our state, where is my heart? What am I pursuing? What is it that I love the most? Is it truly beneficial for me? What is it that I am preparing for my tomorrow? What is it that I'm sending ahead for my tomorrow? Is it good deeds that I'm accumulating? Or is it something else that's occupying me so much so that I'm forgetting Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:26:01--> 00:26:23

sallam said, the example of the believer and his death are like the example of a man who has three friends. The first one says, Take what you want, as you please take whatever you want. The second one says, I am with you. But when you die, I will leave you. And the third one says, I am with you, and I will go with you.

00:26:24--> 00:26:46

So the first is his wealth. Take whatever you want of it, use whatever you want. The second is his family and children who say that we're with you. But when you die, you're going in your grave alone. And the third is his deeds, that say to a person I am with you, and I will go with you. So what is it that we love the most generally, it's our wealth and children.

00:26:47--> 00:27:31

For for action for doing good, generally, what do we say I have no time I'm busy. My kids keep me busy. My house keeps me busy. May Allah have mercy upon us, because it is only deeds that will go with the person in the grave that will accompany a person on the day of gentlemen, wealth will be destroyed with the destruction of the earth and family will leave us in the grave and on the Day of Judgment, they will run away from us. So who is it that we should be seeking Allah? Who is He Who Allahu la de la ilaha illa who He is Allah, other than whom there is no deity? the Mojave was Shahada. He is the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed. Who want Rahman Al Rahim. He is the

00:27:31--> 00:28:26

Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. Over here at names and attributes of Allah are mentioned his names are all descriptive. What are these names who Allahu la de la ilaha illa who He is Allah, other than whom there is no deity, Al Malik the sovereign and produce the pure a Salaam, the perfection, I mean, the Restore of faith, Alma Haman, the overseer, LR Z's, the Exalted in Might, or the honorable algebra, the compeller, Elmo, Taka bear, the superior silverhand Allah here on Manjushri cone, Exalted is Allah above whatever they associate with him. And produce is one of the names of Allah mentioned here. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he would be in racor Institute

00:28:26--> 00:28:32

when he would pray, he would say so boo Hoon, could do some herbal mela ekati are

00:28:33--> 00:29:20

very short so borhan produsen a la palma eco Salah also Name of Allah mentioned here after Sunnah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would say Allahumma anther, Salam I mean casilla tabarrok Tia that agility when it calm and Aziz also Name of Allah mentioned over here, Allah says that honor is my visa and pride is my clock. Whoever is with me regarding one of them shall be tormented meaning Allah is the one deserving of honor, so we should honor him most al Jabbar and Al Mata Kabir the Prophet sallallahu Sallam recited this eye on the member was similar to multiple yet and be a meanie Subhana who dollar my usually cone. And he said that Allah the Exalted will say, I know Jabbar, and

00:29:20--> 00:29:57
