Alright, so let's begin inshallah properly by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala and sending Salawat on was rule of law sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Alhamdulillah. Madhu Ana starring in rule one as the pharaoh when are allowed to be law he means chivalry and fusina one is Dr. Melina May the you know phenomenal builder woman you will follow her Deanna shadow and ina in Allahu Allahu luxury para eyeshadow unnamed Muhammadan RD wa rasuluh all below him in a shade Juan Oji Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim rubbish Rafi sorry well you're certainly on

And it is also like it translates into the month of Ramadan. So we're going to talk about Ramadan and other names of Ramadan, the benefits of Ramadan, the things we can do in Ramadan. So while we're talking about Ramadan Are you all ready for Ramadan? Did you prepare for Ramadan? Anyone?
Ready for Ramadan prepared anything who Ramadan What did you do? We don't even have a week left right. So there should be something you would have done. So inshallah we can type so that we can inshallah build on it. Because we will talk about a checklist now we're going to talk about few things we do in order to prepare for Ramadan. So if you share yours, I will share mine. How's that?
Very good. So you are you have goals you have checklist ready? You have some printouts you have some planners very good.
Okay, you have a timetable. That's nice. You started recitation of the Quran already. That's beautiful. hamdulillah you started fasting already? inshallah, just hang in there and start fasting whenever the sun begins. Okay, you can't hear me
is my voice Oh,
Wouldn't it be someone saying that you can hear me? You join this course? Yes, exactly. That's the best preparation you can do for Ramadan by going over the Quran hamdulillah Zach mono Kanga, Sita stresa Al Hamdulillah so you have a plan to recite after every Salah. Very good, you have a Ramadan cheat on you, that's good hamdulillah very good. So you are going to have consistency in your Salah and your level x beautiful.
Very good. So you have some prayer goals, you have some foot on goals, and you have some books set up to read. That is very good. That's like very smart. It seems like you all are pretty much ready. So let's see what I have got on my list and inshallah then we can compare and see what we can add and what I can learn from your list and what can you learn from my list? Anyway, so I got my list from a doctor for atheism his book anyways, so inshallah It is very extensive and amazing list. So Alhamdulillah we are almost there. We do have our plan ready for Ramadan. But let's see if we have all of this or not. So, did you prepare and you know, by listening or reading about Ramadan? Like do
you know what are the benefits of Ramadan? Do you know what will happen when you fast everyday in Ramadan? You know what will happen when you stand in the arm every night in Ramadan? Do you know what's the benefit? What is the benefit?
You will get forgiveness. Remember those those three, almost similar I had these one talks about man comma Ramadan.
And one says one Swami Ramadan, whoever fasting Ramadan and then whoever stands in Ramadan, not just when you stand randomly, right? It's about when you stand in Ramadan, to pray for young at night. Not just stand for nothing stand to pray, stand and leave your comfort. And then do worship of Allah subhanaw taala especially the night prayer of Yama light is mentioned in the third Hadees It is very similar talks about standing in the Knights of
in the night of Laila to color and of course, it will be like all tonight because we are going to be seeking the night of mother inshallah. Alright, so that's one, did you read anything or listen to anything because we need this motivation, even though we would have heard a lot of lectures before this Ramadan, but we need to revive that. And unhandled if you have attended sister Dana's session on how to prepare for Ramadan, and especially with your families. Second is mentally prepare yourself and your family. How that what are you going to do and you know, your planners, ideas and your timetable ideas were amazing. They are going to help them get in the mode, then educate others,
not just family, but also friends. And how are you going to do that? Alhamdulillah we have social media, right? 100 we still have internet, so we can contact them. We can tell them we can share these checklists with them. Whatever we learn. Sometimes we share really big planners, and we you know, bombard with you know, heavy files. Instead of doing that, how about you make something yourself and share something customized with them? That'd be amazing, isn't it? Because you know when we look at amazing PDF files, we love it, but how many times do we ever use them? Especially you know, the 40 pages long the 90 pages long? Yeah, they're very nice, but who uses them? Hardly
very few amazing people do but not everyone, right? So inshallah make something yourself and then sure, of course presented nicely that will be a very good gift. Then organize your home clean your house and also organize your belongings whatever you would need throughout Ramadan have like your about a corner or maybe just a shelf where you have everything you need, like your books your iBooks and inshallah some books you want to read like maybe you want to read surah this Ramadan, do something extra this Ramadan inshallah alright
and then acquire like we have talked about the DA books, but inshallah da diary we're going to talk about it in a bit towards the end of the session in sha Allah, do all your Ramadan and eat shopping now of course you can only buy fruits for the whole month but you will other things which you can buy beforehand until you can buy them so that you don't have to worry about you know, putting them down again on your shopping list and going again for them so inshallah few things you can go and get them fresh, but whatever is you know, like your rice you don't have to buy them fresh. Similarly pastor you don't have to buy buy a dress or whatever. You can buy it beforehand. Please do that so
that you can save some moments in Ramadan. You don't have to go to that aisle in that grocery shop to get that you can just do it once for the for Ramadan and eat all together. Also if you want to get some clothing and whatnot or gifts for family and friends, or aid then inshallah do
That before Ramadan, so that we don't miss out on the precious moments of this amazing month, which is coming. Also plan out your Southern Hall venues like where are you going to give your donations? Where are you going to give your charity, it should be many different type of you can say outlets, so you can give charity to feed the poor people, you can also give charity to build a mustard, you can give charity to help people like help patients and help with the building of an orphanage and whatnot to ensure a different types of charities you should have in mind or jot them down somewhere so that in Ramadan, you're not wasting time searching for them, do it now inshallah. So have a list
of every day I'm going to give to a different project every day I'm going to give to an amazing cause. You can also sponsor students like this course is offered as a proper course as well. Do you all know that, like this course, you can take as take it as a Certificate course. And you can get a certificate at the end. And they will be quizzes and maybe some resources, they be shared with you through your course portal. So let's say there are some people they want to take it as a course, but they don't have the means they just lost their job. They don't they can't really afford to pay so until you can sponsor for them, and that's a big sort of idea, inshallah. And then you can also make
a list for daily house chores so that you don't have to fight over house chores when it's Ramadan. There was your job it was my job no make a plan beforehand, make a timetable so that it doesn't become a big deal when Ramadan comes. So enter Ramadan well prepared inshallah. And set goals for daily worship. Like after budget, I'm going to sit and recite this much on and I'm going to make sure that I'm going to do all my uscar and I'm going to sit there on a prayer mat till it's time for a shrug or Salah to Doha. And I will pray that and then I'm going to move right to all of these planning should be done now. Alhamdulillah we still have time, like three or four days, right?
depends where you are. So the handle Alright, so now let's say we are done with all of these checklist items. Now we're going to welcome Ramadan What is one thing you think of?
Well, like what is one so now you think of when you think of welcoming Ramadan? Can you think of one thing
very good, very smart system marine. Exactly. So it is citing the moon hamdulillah so it comes in a Hadees from Sahih Muslim whenever you cite the new moon observe fasting and when you cite it with one the next moon which is the moon after Walden break it so hamdulillah from this we learn that either or Aidan when you see it, so inshallah we should go out and see it.
So this is how we're going to welcome Ramadan this year that we will try to see it so if you can see it from your home, if you can go up on some type of mountain and see it inshallah do that. Is it something which is not so common?
If you're allowed to do that, and inshallah like if it's not curfew situation, then of course, like alanda it's not here so we can go out. So we'll go out and see it inshallah.
Sister Samia is about to join us shortly inshallah.
Exactly. All right. Do you think it's, it's weird to go out and sign the moon? How many of you think it's weird? And it won't be like so cool. It'd be
people would think they were crazy. No, we should not think that why don't people go out for fireworks? Don't people go out for weird things? Right? So not that I'm endorsing fireworks in any way that we should go and enjoy them or whatnot. It's like total waste of money and whatnot. But if people can go out for all of those crazy things, why can't we go out for dinner? And why can't we make a make it a big deal? Why can't we make it a fun thing? inshallah so that is something we can do. If you can just go to the top of the building and see it inshallah you can do that, too. So this is how we're going to welcome Ramadan and there's a beautiful there are two doors, one door Are we
going to cover today and one we're going to do tomorrow. How's that? So this is this is a shorter one. This is from so here, Timothy. It says Allah Allah, Allah, male who I Nina, bring it over us or upon us, Bill you me when he man with blessing and with faith was salamati when Islam and with security and Islam, Robbie, my lord Warren Buccola, and your Lord is Allah. So all law bring it over us like this month, with blessing with a man with
Security and with Islam, we are asking Allah for things so amazing. Such a beautiful one. How many of you have it memorized already?
Good on handler, so you can take a screenshot of this page as well. So you still have, how many days? Let's say you have four days. So in these four days or five days, you can memorize this word easily. These are hardly three phrases, isn't it? And the last part is very beautiful. Something which is common between us and the moon, which we're citing right now. is Allah Robbie, my Lord, we're a book and your Lord or who are we talking to you talking to the moon here? That my Lord and your Lord is Allah. Beautiful, right. So this is something which makes us closer to each other more than us.
So insha Allah reference if you want for this drop, it's right here. It's a utterly and Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam he used to make this drop, that's where the star is very important. So inshallah I'm going to skip the next two hours quickly so that we can cover it tomorrow because it's the at the other device very beautiful. And let's talk about an amazing example. Well, sorry, we're going to talk about this example tomorrow. So sister thing is here so we won't waste any of our minute. So inshallah get ready take out your notebook so that you can make the most of the session document Okay, in case you ever paying attention to cinema, I'd even want to delay you, America to see you
tomorrow and john.

We ask Allah subhanaw taala that He grant us sincerity, and that he accepts our efforts. May our intentions be sincere for him, and May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with us.

Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran our the Billahi min ash shaytani r regime
Allah energy Tama it in Sewell jinu Allah a yet to be Mythili have a call on layer to not be Miss Lee wallow can Ababa whom Lee bobbins mahira say, if mankind and Jane, all of them gather together in order to produce the like of this put on, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other assistance, the Quran, the Book of Allah, the speech of Allah is a message and a miracle. It is a guidance and a healing. It is instruction and blessing. The one who follows it is upon guidance, and the one who leaves it is upon misguidance The one who follows it is led to the ways of peace sabula salaam to the straight path slid off when was stuck beam is brought out of
darkness Mina Lulu Matt into light Eleanor. So Allah azza wa jal tells us to reflect on his book Kitab on ends Allahu la como Bara con Leah de Bumble Aya t Walia tada Cara all l BB. This is a blessitt Book which We have revealed to you or profit that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded and taking lesson from this book is something that Allah subhanaw taala has facilitated. He has made it easy, while Accordia some nelco annelie Vic for helmy Mu decade and we have certainly made the Quran easy for remembrance. So is there any who will remember,
learning the Quran is one of the best gifts a person can give themselves. Spending time with the book of Allah is one of the best forms of self care. Our beloved Massoud rhodiola horn, who said, Man Allah dollar lm, Felisa will pour on whoever intends to acquire knowledge that he should reflect on the Quran. This is knowledge that doesn't just bring information to a person, but knowledge that lets them have a taste of eternal pleasure. Even taymiyah said, there is no pleasure in the world that is the same as the pleasure of the Hereafter, except for the pleasure of a man and the pleasure of knowledge. Ignore him Rahim Allah said that Allah the Exalted has made knowledge for hearts like
rain is to the earth. So just as there is no life for the earth without rain, there is no life for the heart without knowledge. So let us begin with calling upon Allah or zoologia Allah human foreigner, Bhima Alam Tana or Allah benefit us by what you teach us, where I live now Marian for owner and teach us what will truly benefit us. What is zuke una illman tanforan rb and give us knowledge by which you will benefit us. I mean
Surah Al Fatiha even our bus rhodiola Horne who reported that while gibreel was sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he heard a creaking sound above him. He lifted his head and said, this is a gate that is opened in heaven today, which had never been opened before. Then when an angel descended through it, he said, this is an angel who came down to the earth who had never come down before he greeted, and he said rejoice over two lights given to you which have not been given to any profit before you saw total Fatiha and the concluding verses of Surah Al Baqarah. He said you will never recite a letter from them for which you will not be given a reward. The more
Farsi rune have listed 36 names for sootel Fatiha and this also tells us how important the sutra is. This is in fact the only surah that is actually praised in the Quran by Allah exalted. Allah subhanaw taala says one occurred at a NACA sobre minalima Thani, one coronella Aleem And We have certainly given you a prophet seven of the oft repeated verses meaning the verses of Surah Fatiha and the great Quran. Surah Fatiha has seven verses. And it begins with Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem. In the name of Allah be Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful Allah. Allah's Name is very blessitt. It is very powerful. And this is why we begin
By taking his name to Bell Rock a small a beaker will Jalali well Ikram, Allah's Name is blessing because it is his primary and most comprehensive name, and it incorporates and necessitates all of his beautiful and perfect names. Because Allah, the One who was worshiped is and must be a rough man. He must be a rahane. He must be Aleem and Albacete, he must have the most perfect names, or else he wouldn't be worshiped. So when a person says Bismillah, In the name of Allah, they're actually invoking Allah, by all of his beautiful and most perfect names, realize the power of Bismillah who is Allah? He is unlike man, the one who is extremely merciful, whose Mercy is where
Sarah, it is all encompassing. It is um, it affects everybody, He is Allah Haim, the one who is ever Merciful, over and over again, whose Mercy is worse. It is continuous. So when the name of Allah is taken, there is blessing, and there is mercy. This is why we begin the recitation of the Quran. We first we begin with the recitation of the Quran by first seeking Allah's refuge against the evil of shaitan. And then we invoke Allah for his blessing and mercy. So are all the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. And Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, we beg Allah for protection, and we beg Allah for his blessing, so that we are able to gain the benefit that we seek from the Quran.
And hamdulillah here a bill Rabbil aalameen. All praise is due to Allah, Who is the Lord of the worlds and hamdu kulu all praise, every kind of praise is for Allah. Hand is with old it is verbally expressed, where as sugar, gratitude can be just in the heart and Hound is more than just gratitude. It is to praise and commend someone would love and reverence for the good that they possess, not just in return for a favor that one has received from them that is sugared. Ham, this to praise with love and reverence. This is why a lost pounds Allah says worku lil hamdulillah say Alhamdulillah This is verbally expressed what p lol hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen in Jana, it will be said all
praises for Allah, Lord of the worlds. The question is why Alhamdulillah? Because why am I becoming neuromedin fermina Allah, all that we have, every single blessing that we have is in fact from Allah, especially the blessing of the Quran. The fact that Allah has given us this opportunity that he gave us the ability to open his book, he gave us the ability to exert the effort and spend some time with it. He gave us his love. He gave us the love for his book, The eagerness to remember him, this is a blessing. And remember, if we do not praise Allah, then it does not matter. Because everything in the existence is already praising Allah, what a min Shea in Illa u sub B will be handy
and there is not a thing except that it exalts Allah by his praise. Even at this moment, the sky is praising Allah, the ground you are on is praising Allah, everything, the trees and the rocks, and even our bodies. So how excellent it would be, if we join in. And we praise Allah, on our tongues, a praise, that is with gratitude in our hearts would love a praise that is offered with love with adoration, and with reverence Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah for all his blessings, the blessings which he prepared for us before we were even created Alhamdulillah for the blessings which he bestowed on us in our lives, and Alhamdulillah for the blessings which he has prepared for his select servants
in what is to come after this life. And hamdulillah who is Allah, He is Rob Bula alameen the rub of all the world's the creator of all the provider of all the owner of all from whom we have come and to whom is our return Alhamdulillah This is a phrase that fills the scales done let will meezan the scales in which deeds will be weighed on the Day of Judgment.
So when a person says Alhamdulillah with their hearts consciously, then the reward is great. When a slave praises Allah, Allah does not return them empty handed. And on the Day of Judgment also the best servants, the most superior servants will be a hammer Dune, those who praise Allah the Most. Why do they praise Allah? Because he is a little Bula alameen and he is a rush manual Rahim. The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, repeatedly merciful, meaning Allah is not only Rob, not only the Creator, but his favours are also many think about it. He gave us sustenance and he has given us good things in life and his mercy encompasses everything. While Mati was here at color
Shea. Every Muslim men cafard will now feel every single person is affected by His mercy. But remember that his special mercies are for his special servants, because he is a rough man and on Rahim, His mercy will be continuous upon his special servants in the hereafter forever and for always, they will receive his special mercy. And that is Jenna, about which Allah has said until rahmati or Hamill became an Asha, you are only My Mercy by means of which I shall show mercy to those whom I wish. We ask Allah to admit us into genital for those with his special mercy, because even though our deeds are not worthy, His mercy is truly vast. So Allah describes himself over here
by His mercy, and His mercy has mentioned four times already two times in Bismillah, and two times over here in this ayah. So all praises for him, for he is the hub of all the Restore of His mercy and His mercies are endless. And at the same time, he is not limited by His mercy. Maliki oma Dean, who is Sovereign of the Day of Recompense, to whom everyone will return Allah asila Jun is Malik, the sovereign to whom everyone will return on the day when all of us will be repaid for our deeds. And on that day, Allah says Mangia a bill has sanity fellow who hire men her, whoever comes on the Day of Judgment with a good deed will have better than it woman Java SE e Atif. Allah youjizz
alladhina amela say e ad Illa Bhima can we are alone and whoever comes with an evil deed than those who did evil deeds will not be recompensed except as much as what they used to do.
A year cannot will do what a jackass 13 it is only You we worship and only You we ask for help. Meaning when you are Allah Worthy of all praise, and all blessings and good things are from you, then you alone are worthy of worship also. So we show humility and servitude to you, you're up. And remember ibadah worship is based on three foundations, commanded herb, absolute adoration, commanded love, absolute hope, and commanded health, absolute fear. Meaning that we love him the most, we have unflinching hope in Him, and we also fear him the most. And we also seek His help with a yak and a serene meaning we pray to Him, we make daraga to him, because there are is the essence of worship.
It is in fact worship. And because le hula wala quwata illa Billah there is no mite and no power, except with the help of Allah. Even taymiyah said, when I reflected over which there are is the most beneficial, da meaning the best and the most important supplication, I realized that it is the draw for seeking Allah's help to perform deeds, performed deeds that please Him. And I found this draw in the words a year can are buddhu what year can a serene The fact is, we need Allah's help, to worship Him, to obey him to leave sin to be patient over the trials of this life, and at the time of death. Also, we need his help, and we need his help over what follows death. And there is no one who is
able to help us in these matters except Allah. This is why what a year canister ain. And remember that ibadah worship is not just a state of heart, but it includes ritual worship also. And in fact, it includes every word and every
Indeed, whether it is internal in the heart in private, or it is external, on the limbs or in public, that Allah subhanaw taala loves and is pleased with. So any word that we say any action that we do, even if it's a thought, If it pleases Allah, if it is done in the way that Allah subhanaw taala likes, then in fact, it is Riba It is something rewardable a year konar will do what yuckiness 13 a dino slid off and was the theme, your guide us to the straight path. guidance is one of the most important things one can pray for. Because if a person has guidance, that means that they have the COA, they have consciousness of Allah. And if they have Taqwa, they will find a way out from
every trouble and receive sustenance from where they cannot even imagine. And so when a person has the core, they're truly successful. This is why we should ask Allah for guidance repeatedly. Think about it in the five daily prayers. We ask Allah for guidance at least 17 times when we recite sudo Fatiha, why? Because we are in need of guidance, always in need of guidance. Or the you know, the Allahu anhu said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised me keep asking Allah, Allah who mendini was said digney that Oh Allah, direct me to the straight path and make me adhere to the straight path. Meaning Don't let me go here and there. Let me remain firm on the straight path. And
even when someone bothers you, when someone harms you, then pray for their guidance. don't pray against them. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked to pray against the tribe of dos. He said Allah Houma did those sun, Oh Allah guide the people of those. So we say a dino slid off almost Hakim, your Allah Guide us to the straight path, the path that will take us to your pleasure. And what is that path, it is slid off on levena Anantara lay him The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, meaning the path of the people that you are pleased with later in my Luba, I lay him not of those who have evoked your anger will have been lean, or of those who are
astray. Meaning we want to be on the path of the righteous, and who are they, they're the prophets, the truthful, the righteous. The martyrs are Allah, the way they were sincere to you, and the way they worked to please you, You grant us the ability to be sincere to you, and to do things that please you. And you save us from being like those who ended up with your anger, those who are given knowledge, but they did not act upon it. And we also don't want to be like those people who want to stray from the straight path. We want to be on the path of those who were upon guidance. I mean, this was suited to Fatiha, which is a surah unlike any other. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam said that Allah has not revealed in the Torah, nor in the NGO, any surah like pseudo Fatiha and Allah subhanaw taala says about the surah that I have divided this between me and my slave, and the surah is called a Salah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah says, I have divided the prayer into two halves between myself and my servant, and my servant shall have what he asks for. So when the servant says, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. Allah says, My servant has praised me. When the servant says a man of Rahim, Allah says, My servant has glorified me. When the servant says Maliki young Medina, Allah says, My servant has interested all matters to me. When he
says a yak and our Buddha, yak and a serene, Allah says, This is between me and my servant, and my servant shall have what he asks for. And when the servant says a Dina slid off and Mr. Hakim slid off and levena Anam Tara, lay him laid in my lobby or lay him one of our lien. Allah says, This is for my servant, and my servant shall have what he asks for. mean Surah Al Baqarah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, recite Surah Al Baqarah for reciting it is a blessing and leaving it is a cause of grief and the magician's cannot counter it. A Buddha said I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, Do not turn your houses into graveyards. shaitan runs away from
the house in which Surah Al Baqarah is recited. Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim la flamme meme Valley Kalki tabula
Buffy who the limit again, this is the Book about which there is no doubt, it is a guidance for those who are conscious of Allah, Who are the queen, who are those who are always conscious of Allah who think about him. They are, and levena you may know and I believe those who believe in the unseen, which is an action of the heart were up more to fall out. And they establish prayer, which is an action of the limbs, when we model is a canal, whom you and feel Kuhn and spend out of what We have provided for them. This is the right of the creation. So the motor pain, those who benefit from this book, are those in whose internal is Allah's remembrance. So they believe in Allah, the way
they should believe, and they fulfill the requirements of a man. And in their external state also, they practically exhibit that faith. So they properly established salah and they spend what they have on Allah's creation, they pay full regard to the rights of the Creator, and the rights of the creation and those who believe in what has been revealed to you and what was revealed before you and of the hereafter there are certain so part of the core and of the conditions of guidance is that a person believes in everything that was revealed on Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam everything that he brought, and everything that he taught, and that is in the form of the Quran, and
also in the form of hikma, which is also called sooner or Hadees Allah subhanaw taala says, what ends and Allah who are lakehill Kitab al hikmah. And Allah has revealed on you the book and the Wisdom, where Allah command and control them and taught you what you did not know what can afford Lu maharlika Lima and the favor of Allah on you is ever great. Therefore, benefiting from the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to actually benefit from Allah has special favor. The person who gets to benefit from the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has truly received Allah's favor. And remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left both the Quran
and the Sunnah with his oma and he urged his ummah, to hold on to both in order to remain guided, what Bill irati homeopathy known, and of the Hereafter, there are certain European conviction, your pain is to believe with certainty, without any doubt, your pain is the highest rank of knowledge. It is a station which allows a person to see what the average II does not see. This is why for the alcohol, the word man is not used over here, but your pain has been used. When there is your pain. Only then do actions change. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Are people truly there is no blessing that people are given in the world that is better than your pain and our raffia
conviction and safety. So ask Allah for both the person who has the pain, then they have no doubt. They're absolutely sure. Faith is a reality to them. It is their worldview, it is their worldview. It is their conscious and subconscious. They know that Allah is true, His Word is true. His promises true, the meeting with him is true. Paradise is true. Hell is true. And the hour is true. And it is because of your pain that a person can surrender themselves to Allah, trust in Allah and depend upon Allah and repent to Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, How excellent are five things? Whoever beats Allah, while believing in them with conviction will enter Paradise. Whoever
believes in Allah, the last day, paradise, hell, resurrection after death and the accounting, those who have such characteristics Allah says Allah He Karla, who the mirror be him, those are upon right guidance from their Lord, what Allah ecomo mostly her own and it is those who are the successful, those whose external, internal, their relationships with people, all our sound, this is the standard of guidance. We asked Allah for guidance in pseudo Fatiha and Allah shows us over here what guidance looks like the conditions are given over here that if one fulfills these conditions, they meet this criteria, then they are upon guidance. And if there's guidance, what hula ecohome will mostly hone
then there is success. So the key to success has been given over here. In contrast, as for those people who deny it is said, Indeed, those who disbelieve it is all the same for them. Whether you warn them or do not warn them, they will not believe meaning when there's no faith, no belief
Then warning does not help. Why Allah has said a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil, and for them is a great punishment. When does this happen? This happens when a person rejects the truth, after knowing it. And secondly, when a person increases in sin, when sins are many than hearts become sealed, may Allah protect us from this, then, if third category is mentioned, and that is of those who are somewhere between a man and Cofer, and they're the hypocrites, Allah says, And of the people are some who say, meaning with their mouths, we believe in Allah and the Last Day, but they're not believers in reality, Subhana Allah, they say
what their amounts that they believe. But Allah does not accept their claim. Why? Because they're not truthful in their claim. And because their practical life does not reflect what they claim to believe in both their speech and their actions contradict a man, they go against what they claim, they don't do what they say, they think, to deceive Allah, and those who believe, but the deceived not accept themselves and perceive it not meaning by showing a man, they try to protect their image. But in reality, they're deceiving themselves, they think they're safe, but they're not actually safe. Vehicle ob him model in their hearts is a disease, what disease, this is of hypocrisy, or
according to some other mufa serum, the disease of the love of this world. So Allah has increased their disease, meaning their love and inclination for this world has increased, and for them as a painful punishment, because they have been actually used to lie. Remember that the love of the world is a disease because of which a person is deprived of the pleasure and the sweetness of emotion. And when it is said to them do not cause corruption on the earth. Because the thing is that when words and actions contradict one another, when there's deception, when there's lies, then this causes corruption. This causes problems. They say, we are but reformers, meaning we're actually trying to
get along with everybody. they justify their sins, they justify their lies. They say, we're just trying to be in everyone's good books. So wherever there's a need to lie, we do that. But the fact is that such lies only cause more problems. They don't truly bring benefit, unless as unquestionably It is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive it not.
And when it is said to them, believe as the people have believed, meaning believe like the Sahaba, they say, should we believe as the foolish had believed in their eyes, the Sahaba were foolish, the truthful or naive? unquestionably, it is they who are the foolish but they know it not. And when they meet those who believe they say, we believe, but when they're alone with their evil ones, they say, indeed, we are with you. We were only mockers. Subhan Allah, making fun of Islam, of Muslims of people who follow Islam. This is a sign of hypocrisy. How can a person make fun of Islam when they say they believe? How can they love and mark at the verses that Allah has revealed? The commands
that Allah has given what Allah has declared sacred, they think they know better, so that they can criticize the religion of Allah. Such people are truly foolish, Allah says, But Allah mocks them, and prolongs them in their transgression while they wander blindly. Meaning Allah has given them the freedom to do what they want right now, and to think what they're doing is good. They live in a fool's paradise, they're completely oblivious to their errors. And on the Day of Judgment, they will be mocked at how their light will be extinguished, and they will be left in darkness alone and bewildered. Allah says those are the ones who have purchased error in exchange for guidance. So
their transaction has brought no profit, nor were they guided. Their example, is like that of the one who kindled a fire, meaning at first he believed there was light, but when it illuminated what was around him, Allah took away their light and left them in darkness, so they could not see. Remember, the light of the heart. Amen. is in Allah's hand. This is why we should pray. Allah Houma, Gylfi, calbee new raw, Oh Allah make light in my heart. They did have light at the beginning. But when they feared worldly loss because of Deen when they saw the glitters of this world, they left the deen for the dunya. So the darkness of their desires, the darkness of their doubts
disbelief took over and the inner light of faith was extinguished. And so they wander in misguidance. Unable to find the way. Allah says they are deaf, dumb and blind, so they will not return, meaning they're unable to hear the words of guidance. When they hear such words. The sounds bounce back. The words don't reach the heart. they're unable to speak the truth. they're unable to see to absorb the truth. The signs are laid out across the earth, but they fail to see them. The verses of Quran are filled with truth and guidance, but they don't benefit. Allah says so they will not return for whom lie of G rune, meaning they will not return to faith, they will remain in
Or their example is like a rainstorm from the sky, a heavy downpour within which is darkness, thunder and lightning. And this is referring to the verses which are being revealed in which is light, but also some risks, things that are not always easy to do. What do the hypocrites do? They put their fingers in their ears against the thunderclaps in dread of death. They avoid the heart things, they avoid the commands that are difficult on the knifes they don't want to hear anymore. They don't want to come to guidance. They feel it's too much when lahoma hailstone bill caffeine, but Allah is encompassing of the disbelievers. A person should think, where can I escape from Allah
with sky which earth will shelter me, when the angel of death will come? There will be no escape, no getting away, then I have to stand before Allah. So before that time comes, it is necessary that I prepare for it. Allah says, ye caddell berco yafo Abba sobre home, the lightning almost snatches away their site. Every time it lights the way for them. They walk they're in. But when darkness comes over them, they stand still. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken away their hearing and their sight. Indeed, Allah is over all things competence, but he has given them some time right now. When there is a command that seems easy. When things seem easy, hopeful, they're willing to
follow the religion, but when there's some difficulty, they stop, and Allah has not fully taken the means of guidance away from them. If he wanted, he could have taken away their hearing their vision, and remember that these are the means of guidance, but he's still giving them a chance. if we're honest with ourselves, we would admit that there are times when our words do not match our actions, when there is laziness in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala when the love for the world is intense, even Omar Abdullah Horne, who would ask her they for adoring him In the name of Allah that tell me is my name amongst the names of the hypocrites that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed
you of hummed on a lot. The Allahu anhu said naffaa callahans Allah, he was afraid for hypocrisy for himself. The Companions feared hypocrisy for themselves. And here we are thinking ourselves to be perfect sincere believers who are safe from hypocrisy. Remember, the person who feels secure from hypocrisy is the one who is truly at risk of hypocrisy. The believer is afraid of Nirvana. So we should keep praying. We should keep asking Allah subhanaw taala Allahumma Matera now be a Submariner. What about sorry, now? We're cool. We're Tina, ma. Hey, Tina, what your Ullapool word is, I mean, oh, Allah, allow us to benefit from our hearing, our vision, our strengths, don't take
them away from us, for as long as we live and make them outlive us meaning or Allah, enable us to have these abilities these means of guidance until we die, so we can be on guidance. Now Allah addresses all of mankind. Yeah, uh, you harness all mankind, worship your Lord, devote yourselves to him, love him the most have reverence for him, Who is he? He created you, you are here because of him, you are who you are because of him. And he also created those before you that you may become righteous. You may be safeguarded in the world against sin, and from falling in difficulty and in the hereafter from falling in hell, who is your Lord recognize Him, He is the one who made for you
the earth a bed and the sky is ceiling and sent down from the sky rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provisioned for you. So do not attribute to Allah equals while you know, when you know that He alone is doing all of this, then He alone is worthy of your worship. La ilaha illa Allah And remember, for a bada guidance is necessary.
One needs to know what Allah likes and what Allah does not like and for that it is essential that one learns the Quran. So the authenticity of the Quran is established, we're in quantum field a bin. And if you are in doubt about what we have sent down upon our servant, then produce a surah the like they're off and call upon your witnesses, your helpers other than Allah, if you should be truthful, but if you do not, and you will never be able to because it is impossible for anyone to produce anything like the Quran, then Save yourselves fear the fire whose fuel is men and stones prepared for the disbelievers.
This shows us that if the Quran is missing from a person's life, if they don't have put on in their life, the guidance of Quran in their life then the outcome is very serious, on the other hand, and give good tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds, that they will have gardens in Paradise, beneath which rivers flow, whenever they are provided with a provision of fruit there from they will say, this is what we were provided with before meaning they will be given familiar food, but of course, the deliciousness will be different each time and it is given to them in likeness, meaning even though in color and appearance, they will look the same. In reality, they will be
different, and they will have their in purified spouses, and they will abide there in eternally that life is never ending. It is eternal. So prepare for that life. But there are two conditions Eman and normal slowly, faith and righteous action. And remember that righteous action has four components. First of all, real knowledge, one must do it with knowledge. Secondly, near the intention should also be good for the sake of Allah, then sobol do it with patients don't give up and quit too easily. Then finally, last do it only for Allah wa who without any partner. This book is the great Quran. And Allah has made this Quran easy for the servants. It is Allah speech. And it is also
understandable to people. If you think about it, the speech the language of people, especially those who are advanced in their knowledge is sometimes very hard to comprehend. The more a person knows, the more complicated their speech becomes. But Allah Allah Buddha, Allah mean speaks to people in a way that they can understand. And this is why there are examples in the Quran. But when people fail to find fault in the Quran, they mark at the examples, they mark at the contents of the Quran. So Allah says, Indeed, Allah is not shy, Allah is not timid to present an example, that of a mosquito, or what is smaller than it and those who have believed know that it is the truth from their Lord.
Every detail of the Quran is important to them. But as for those who disbelieve, they say, What did Allah intend by this as an example? They don't understand because the hearts are covered. Allah misleads many thereby and guides many thereby and he misleads not except the defiantly disobedient.
So the reason for their misguidance is people's own deviation. It is their own faults. Allah says fella Mirza, who, as of Allah who kulula home when they deviated Allah caused their hearts to be deviated. The person who surrenders before the command of Allah, Allah gives them guidance, but those who are facet pain, who defiantly disobey, who violate the boundaries set by Allah and pursue their desires than such people are deprived of guidance. They are those who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined, especially relationships, and they cause corruption on Earth. It is those who are the losers. We learned
earlier about them with the pain, the mortar Dean, the Sally hain, and here the facet pain are mentioned. Those who break the promises that they make with Allah, they have no regard for La ilaha illa Allah, they take the name of Allah, they make promises in his name and swear olts in his name, and then don't fulfill them and their relationships that Allah has commanded that they should be joined. They cut them off. Remember, the people who sever ties of kinship are deprived of Allah's mercy. And such people are Hussey rune, they suffer loss
In this world, and in the Hereafter, there are two things that increase when a person joins ties of kinship. And they are life and risk sustenance, and everyone wants to live longer and have more money. And the key to this is to be good to one's relatives, when when they do good to you, and also when they don't do good to you. Because remember, that a believer doesn't just reciprocate, a believer is good. He does good regardless of how people treat him. Allah says k Fatah, Corona Bella, how can you disbelieve in Allah, when you were lifeless? Where did you come from? Who put life in you, and he brought you to life, then he will cause you to die, meaning you're not in this world
forever, this life is short, then he will bring you back to life. Yes, there is another life and then to him, you will be returned. And then there is no death. So there's two deaths and two lives. And this shows us that our life is not just in this world, the real life is the life of the hereafter. So we must prepare for what is coming ahead. It is he who created for you, all of that which is on the earth. Then he directed himself to the heaven and made them seven heavens, and he is knowing of all things. Now, the origin of mankind is mentioned that where did people come from? Who was the first human being? What if caller a boo columella iica. And mentioned O Muhammad sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, when your Lord said to the angels, indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority. They said, will you place upon it, one who causes corruption there in and sheds blood, they weren't objecting, they were just expressing their concern and fear. While we declare your praise and sanctify you, meaning if the purpose of man's creation is to worship You, we're already doing that. Allah said, Indeed, I know that which you do not know. You do not know the reason the wisdom behind the creation of human beings. And he taught Adam the names, all of them, meaning a login of knowledge to human beings, before sending a login of knowledge to Adam or a salon before
sending him on Earth. Then he showed them to the angels and said, inform me of the names of these if you are truthful. This is Allah subhanaw taala his favor upon human beings, that Allah has given us knowledge of what we did not know. It is knowledge that was given before the foods of Jannah it is knowledge that was given to Adam alayhis salaam before a spouse, and it is knowledge with which Adam was given preference over the angels, the angel said Suba Hannah color in Milena a llama I lantana eggs Exalted are You we have no knowledge except what You have taught us? Indeed, it is you who is the ever knowing the ever wise, Allah said, or Adam informed them of their names. And when he had
informed them of their names, he said, Did I not tell you that I know the unseen of the heavens and the earth, and I know what you reveal and what you have concealed and mentioned when we said to the angels prostrate before Adam, so they prostrated except for a beliefs he refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers. And we said, Oh Adam, dwell you and your wife in Paradise and eat there from in ease and abundance from wherever you will, but do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers. But Chai upon caused them to slip out of it slowly and gradually he convinced them to eat the very fruit, they were forbidden and remove them from that condition in which they
had been. And we said go down all of you as enemies to one another. Man is enemy to shaitan and shaitan is enemy two men and you will have upon the earth a place of settlement and provision for a time. So Allah created them human beings for Earth. And in Jenna there was a test to show that if a person disobeyed is their rub, then they cannot have Jenna. In order to be in Jenna. One has to please Allah. Then Adam received from his Lord some words, and he accepted his repentance. Indeed, it is he who is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful. Allah subhanaw taala gave out the money he said on that realization to repent. And then Allah taught Adam the words of repentance, and then
accepted the repentance of Adam
Subhan Allah, mercy upon mercy. Allah is pleased with the repentance of his servant. Allah rewards his servant when his servant repents. And this is good news, your tube Allah who are Lamin tab, the person who repents, then Allah accepts their repentance. So we should also repent to Allah from all of our sins. We said, Go down from it, all of you. And when guidance comes to you from me, whoever follows my guidance, there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. This is the benefit of following guidance, Indonesia, and their fear and their grief will keep departing from them.
Will levena cafaro worker there will be Aya Tina, and those who disbelieve and deny our signs, those will be companions of the Fire, they will abide there and eternally, after addressing all mankind. Allah subhanaw taala addresses the bunny is slightly Ill now specifically, remember that this is one of the first soldiers to be revealed in Medina. And at the time, besides the Arabs, three tribes of Bani Israel lived in Medina and the bunny is slightly ill were the descendants of your pobrania salaam, prophets. musala. He said, I'm recently sent out and many other prophets were sent to them. And several scriptures were also given to them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also
sent to them. So they're addressed over here. Yeah, Bunny is sloppy, or children of Islam II. Remember my favor which I have bestowed upon you the many religious and worldly blessings that I have given to you specifically, and fulfill my covenant upon you, that I will fulfill your covenant, when you will obey me, I will make you enter Jannah and be afraid of only me, and believe in what I have sent down, confirming that which is already with you, and be not the first to disbelieve in it, and do not exchange my signs for a small price and fear only me. You see, everybody knew that the bunny is slightly ill were the People of the Scripture. There were supposed to be people of
knowledge, religious folk. So everyone would ask them about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But they would say unclear things about him, leaving people in doubt and confusion, so they're advised against that overhear? Let the truth be known. Do not conceal it, and do not sell my religion for a petty worldly gain.
And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know and establish prayer and gives a cat and bow down with those who bow, the most important act of worship that is being mentioned again. Now over here, a Salah? Do you order righteousness of the people and forget yourselves while you recite the Scripture, then will you not reason your words and actions should not be in contradiction? That is hypocrisy, therefore, was there you notice somebody was Salah, and seek help through patience and prayer, when in difficulty, seek Allah's help. And indeed it is difficult except for those who are humbly submissive to Allah. Those people who are humble before
Allah, who willingly surrender before him, they pray Salah, happily. Remember, Salah is a test. It is a scale that will show you who you really are, what the level of your faith is. So check yourself what is the state of your heart when the event is made? When the time of Salah enters? How do you view the place of prayer? Is it a garden or a prison? Remember Subodh and Salah they actually create ease in life because Allah says seek help through patience and prayer. All of the prophets of Allah would seek ease through patience and prayer. And this was the way of the righteous Also, remember that when sada was held captive by the king, and he intended to harm her, she began praying. And
Ibrahim already has said I'm also began praying at the same time and Allah delivered her from that tyrant. Salah brings Allah's mercy and protection. So who are people who actually likes Allah, who don't find it difficult? A lady nail Luna anomala corabi him, those who are certain that they will meet their Lord, and that they will return to Him, they have your pain. Again, it is said all children of Israel. Remember my favor that I have bestowed upon you, and that I prefer you over the worlds and fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, nor will intercession be accepted from it, nor will compensation be taken from it, nor will they be aided, no one will help
there. So many are affairs now. Now
The bunny is slightly reminded of different blessings so that they realize their need of Allah and surrender to Him with gratitude.
And recall when we save your forefathers from the people of our own, who afflicted you with the worst torment, slaughtering your newborn sons and keeping your females alive, and in that was a great trial from your Lord. And recall, when we parted the sea for you and saved you, and we drowned the people of our own while you were looking on. This was necessary for the bunny is to let you to see the armies of fit our own drowning, because if they didn't see that they wouldn't have closure, they would constantly live in fear. And recall when we made an appointment with Moosa for 40 nights, then you took for worship the calf after him while you were wrongdoers, then we forgave you after
that. So perhaps you would be grateful. And recall when we gave Moosa the Scripture and criterion that perhaps you would be guided. So the book of Allah is for guidance. And recall when Moses said to his people, all my people, indeed you have wronged yourselves by your taking of the calf for worship. Imagine Allah subhanaw taala rescued them, they watched their enemy drown, but instead of showing gratitude to Allah, they began worshipping the calf. So musar Listen, I'm set to them. So repent to your Creator, and kill yourselves kill one another. That is best for all of you. In the sight of your Creator, the punishment was severe for this, then he accepted your repentance. Indeed,
he is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful. And recall when you said almost, we will never believe you until we see Allah outright. So the Thunderbolt took you while you were looking on. Then we revived you after your death, that perhaps you would be grateful. And we shaded you with clouds and sent down to you Munna and quails saying, eat from the good things with which we have provided you and they wronged us not, but they were only wronging themselves. And recall when we said, enter the city and eat from it wherever you will in ease and abundance and enter the gate bowing humbly and say HIPAA, which means a stuffit Allah, that Allah relieve us of our burdens, we will then
forgive your sins for you, and we will increase the doors of good in goodness and reward.
But those who wronged change those words to a statement, other than that which had been set to them, instead of saying HIPAA, they said hemper, which means wheat grain, so they basically marked, so we sent down upon those who wronged a punishment from the sky, because they were defiantly disobeying, meaning there was nothing else to do than to punish such people. This is a punishment which they brought upon themselves. And recall when Moosa prayed for water for his people, so we said, strike with your staff, the stone and their gushed forth from a 12 Springs, and every people knew its watering place, eat and drink from the provision of Allah, and do not commit abuse on the earth,
spreading corruption. And recall when you said almost, we can never endure one kind of food, we can eat the same food every day. So call upon your Lord to bring forth for us from the earth. It's green herbs, and it's cucumbers, and it's garlic, and it's lentils and it's onions, meaning we want the things that the earth grows Masada Salaam said, Would you exchange what is better for what is less you want to give up man and Salwa heavenly food for earthly food? If that is the case, then go into any settlement. And indeed, you will have what you have asked, you can go get it yourself then. And they were covered with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger from Allah upon them. That
was because they repeatedly disbelieved in the signs of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That was because the disobeyed and were habitually transgressing. So why did the Wrath of Allah befall these people because of these reasons, and especially their habitual transgression, they're breaking the limits set by Allah, they're crossing the boundaries shamelessly in pursuit of their desires. We see that when the chosen people who were favored with many blessings, when they were punished because of their transgression and denial. What does that mean? Why is this being mentioned over here, so that we take a lesson? We are very proud of the fact that we are Ahmed of Muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And yes, this pride is fitting. We must be grateful to Allah for this, but we also have to watch ourselves. Remember that on the Day of Judgment, some people will come to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
But they will be removed far away from him. They will not even get to drink from the held. How will they get his intercession? So we have to follow the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in the true sense, we have to have Taqwa and remember that taqwa includes saving yourself from sin and transgression. And that is what will ultimately save a person from punishment in the hereafter. We have to stop ourselves from sins, where the limits of Allah come, we have to stop, because remember that one sin, one violation leads to another, and then a person gets stuck in that quick stand there in that quicksand, and they are worthy of Allah's wrath. And this is what happened with the bunny Islam he
now it general invitation is given, Allah says in Medina amanu, well, levena had one nosara was Sabine, Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or sabians, meaning before the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam, those among them who believed in Allah and the Last Day ended righteousness will have the reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve? So we see that a man with righteous deeds, this is what saves a person from fear and grief, a life of obedience to Allah, Mayor affiliation to a group is not enough, simply identifying with a certain group is not sufficient, there must be faith and righteous action.
And recall when we took your covenant, or children of Israelite, you, and we raised over you the Mount, saying, Take what we have given you with determination, and remember what is in it, that perhaps you may become righteous, you may be saved, we have been given the same command that we hold on to this book firmly, because when a person follows this book, only then do they have the COA, then you turned away after that, and if not for the favor of Allah upon you, and His mercy, you would have been among the losers. So it is Allah's mercy that he saved them, and he gave them another chance. And the fact is, that Allah keeps giving us more and more chances. You see different
trials, different tests that we experienced in our lives, whether it is sickness, or some financial trouble. Why is that? So? Why do these difficulties come to draw our attention to Allah, so that we turn to Him, we inclined towards him, we run towards him. But when we get lost in those trials, and don't connect with Allah, there is a warning over here. every difficulty that you that you face, think, did this difficulty bring me closer to Allah, or take me farther away from him? fortunate as the person who uses that time to draw near to Allah subhanaw taala.
And you had already known about those who transgressed among you concerning the Sabbath. Remember that they were forbidden from fishing on Saturday. So they would put the nets in on Friday, and remove them on Sunday. And they would say we didn't catch the fish, the fish came themselves. What are you trying to fool Allah? Are you trying to outsmart him? So we set to them, be apes despised and we made it a determined punishment for those who were present and those who succeeded them and a lesson for those who fear Allah. So what is the lesson for them with the clean that no one can deceive Allah? deception is the way of the hypocrites and recall when Moses said to his people,
Indeed, Allah commands you to slaughter a cow. They said, Do you take us in ridicule? Are you kidding? He said, I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant rubella. Remember, that a person of knowledge a person of intelligence, does not make fun of others does not make does not mock at others because making fun of others is a sign of Lj lien, those who are ignorant, making fun of people's appearance, the way they talk walk, or an error they make in their speech. This is not good luck. This is gehele masala Salaam said are all the biLlahi an akuna Minal Jaya Helene, may Allah protect me from ridiculing my people by using Allah's name by using Allah's commands.
Allah tested, the bunny is slightly over here. You see they had lived amongst the people that are on for a very long time. And they used to worship multiple gods. So they were they were in love with the cow. Because the fact is that your surroundings impact you. So in order to purify there, in order to purify their faith, Allah subhanaw taala tested them over here. So tests are for the purpose of pure
defying our faith, Allah subhanaw taala commanded them to slaughter a cow out of all things, to purify their faith, so that they would become completely submissive to Allah subhanaw taala. But they found this command very hard. So they said, You're joking, you cannot be serious. And then they stalled. They asked many questions. They said, Call upon your Lord, to make clear to us what it is. Moses said, Allah says it is a cow, which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that so do what you are commanded. Meaning Just do it. Don't delay. The fact is that the right to servants of Allah, don't delay in obeying Allah. The angels are prompt in obeying Allah. The Sahaba were also
very prompt in obeying the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. The man said that I saw a man whose opinion was accepted by the people, and whatever he said, they submitted to him. So I asked Who is this man? And they said, this is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So let us check ourselves, whose footsteps are we on? Those of the Sahaba? Or those of the bunny is slightly? Then they said, Call upon your Lord, to show us what is its color. He said, he says it is a yellow cow, bright in color pleasing to the observers, but there we're still not satisfied. So the said, Call upon your Lord, to make clear to us what it is, indeed, all cows look alike to us. We're confused.
And indeed We in sha Allah, if Allah wills will be guided. So finally, they said insha Allah, and because of that, they were able to find the cow. masala Salaam did not get exasperated by their questions. He didn't tell them to go away. mozarella salaam said, he says it is a cow neither trained to plow the earth nor to irrigate the field, one free from fault with no spot upon it. They said, Now you have come with the truth. When they ran out of questions. I said Finally, it is clear. So they slaughtered it. But they could hardly do it. It was very difficult for them to find a car like that. Mossad SNM brought the truth the first time. But it is because they did not want to
follow. It didn't appear to be clear to them. So they kept asking questions until they ran out of questions and things became very hard for them. They did not want to slaughter the cow. This is the problem, because they thought that something terrible would happen. It would be a source of bad luck. But the exact opposite happened. The slaughtering of the cow obeying Allah subhanaw taala in regards to this matter, actually brought ease in their situation, because at the same time, someone had been murdered, and people were being accused. So in that chaos, what happened? Allah says and recall when you slew a man and disputed over it, but Allah who was to bring about that which you
were concealing, so we said, strike the slain man with part of it, meaning with part of the cow. And when the deceased was struck with a with a part of the cow, he spoke the name of the murder. This was a miracle that they were shown in the time of musalla Sena. Thus does Allah bring the death to life, and he shows you His signs that you might reason so what is the lesson? The lesson is that a person should leave superstition, and leave that those fears that prevent them from obeying Allah subhanaw taala do what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded without any fear. And this is how you will get ease in your life. Allah says thammakaset kulu buco member daedalic then your hearts became
hardened after that, being like stones, or even harder for indeed there are stones from which rivers burst forth and there are some of them that split open and water comes out and there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allah and Allah is not unaware of what you do. Here, three kinds of stones are mentioned that represent three kinds of people first, stones through which rivers gush forth and this is in places where a lot of water has get has gathered, and springs gush out because the water cannot stay contained anymore. So the rocks the stones, they burst forth, they break away, giving way to water and some people are like that, the knowledge, the goodness, the desire to do
good, the love for religion, it keeps gathering and increasing and then comes a time when it gushes out as if it was rivers so many among the creation benefit from the good that they produce. The second type is of people who are such that their good doesn't come out immediately. It is it is inside deep inside, but a major incident like him. Like Like a difficult
trial causes them to crack, a big hurt, you know, it has a huge impact on them. So some water trickles out. And some people are like that, that they keep absorbing the good, but it doesn't come out at first. But when something causes them to crack, a hardship than good comes out, and third, rocks that fall from the fear of Allah, because of an earthquake or some landsliding some gravitational pull rocks that fall down. So some people appear to be stubborn like rocks. But when they develop the fear of Allah, they also bend, they also repent from their sins. So we see here that stones, rocks, they can break, good can come forth from something that is so dry and hard, and
apparently impermeable, but they can also be a source of benefit. So don't cancel people. Don't be judgmental about people, it is possible that some individuals appear to be too stubborn, very, very hard to deal with. But a day comes that they become a source of much late, they break they crack and so much good comes out of them. And some people are like that they appear to be stones you try to communicate in different ways, but there is no response. But then something in their life causes them to surrender before Allah and the good that was hidden deep comes out. So never despair. Never ever despair. But we see in this ayah Allah says about the bunny is sought yield that your hearts
became harder than stones. Some people are different. So we should ask Allah to keep our hearts soft, that we continue to benefit from the verses of Allah. May Allah protect us from the evil of our souls. yBnL Kalyan Rahim Allah said that there are five things that corrupt the hearts. Number one fix, number one, mixing frequently with people socializing excessively, not having alone time with Allah subhanaw taala with oneself, secondly, following the desire, meaning doing only that which pleases the nups. Thirdly, loving someone more than loving Allah. Fourthly, excessive sleep. And number five, excessive consumption of food. This is just like, you see, when the stomach is
upset, then no good food benefits, the best food is even rejected by it. Similarly, when the heart is corrupt, than nothing good, has an impact. So Allah subhanaw taala addresses the believers saying, Do you cover it? Do you hope all believers that they would believe for you, you really think the bunny is slight you will believe while a party of them used to hear the words of Allah, and then distort the total, after they had understood it. While they were knowing how hard were their hearts, they refuse to change themselves. They tried to change the words of a law. And when they meet those who believe they say we have believed, but when they are alone with one another, they say do you
talk to them about that? Do you talk to them about what Allah has revealed to you so they can argue with you about it before your Lord, then will you not reason? But do they not know that Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare. And among them are unlettered ones, those who don't know the book, who do not know the Scripture, except in wishful thinking, or that they only know how to read the book without understanding its meaning. But they're only assuming. We've seen this idea that not knowing the book of Allah is actually ignorance. Even if a person knows many other things. If they don't know the book of Allah, then they are unlettered. So woe to those who write the
Scripture with their own hands, then say this is from Allah, in order to exchange it for a small price. Whoa to them for what their hands have written, and water them for what they earn. And they say, never will the fire touch us except for a few days. This is the corruption of their belief. Say, have you taken a covenant with Allah, for Allah will never break his covenant? Or do you say about Allah, that which you do not know? Bella Mancha, Saba say he attorn Yes, whoever earns evil and his evil, his sin has encompassed him, meaning he is surrounded by his sin, not he is surrounded by his sin, not leaving it, not coming out of it. Those are the companions of the Fire, they will
abide there and eternally for a beer even Hussein said, this is the person who commits sin and dies in that state without repentance. Remember, little sins that are many
are enough to destroy a person. And who knows what if a person is not even able to repent from those since this is why a person should remain fearful of Allah and seek forgiveness of Allah throughout the day that Oh Allah, forgive me, all of my sins, but they who believe and do righteous deeds, those are the companions of Paradise, they will abide there and eternally. And recall when we took the covenant from the children of Islam, he do not worship except Allah, and to parents do good, and to relatives, orphans, and the needy, and speak to people good and establish prayer and gives a cat, but then you turned away, except a few of you, and you were refusing. A covenant was taken from the
bunny is sought yield. But why are we being told about it? So that we know that these are important things to do? What are they, first of all, worship only Allah, then sn with parents, because after Allah, the greatest right is of the parents. And remember, your son is not just reciprocation, that only when they speak nicely to you, you speak nicely in return. And if they yell at you, you yell back, no, your son is to do good, even in return for bad. So regardless of what parents do to you say to you how they are to you, you must be good to them. This is Allah's command, and then your son, not just towards parents, but extend this to other relatives too. And then expand further
include the orphans and those in need, because they are the part of society that is not generally given much importance, nor are they treated well. So show your Sam to them. And then what is the minimum level of ersan that doesn't cost anything we'll call in nursey has now speak to people good words, kindly, decently meaning if you cannot give them anything, at least speak to them nicely. This is the bare minimum. So if someone is with actions, and hirschorn is also with speech, Al Kelly matoba ubatuba sadaqa. A good word is charity, spreading Salaam and speaking kindly our deeds that bring about forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala there are among Mooji battle mafia, so say salam
to everyone and speak good in a way that is good. Make sure that your words are truthful, necessary, respectful, courteous, free of arrogance, free of boastfulness free of rudeness and other ills make your column husen May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the a bit of give give us all the ability to speak good to say what is good in a way that is good. And then they were told to perform salah and gives a cat because these are also very important, along with good luck. It's not either or, it is both This is complete, Dean. Do we not know that these are important things we all do. But reading it today is a way of reminding ourselves because we are human and we forget the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam reviewed the Quran with gibreel every Ramadan. Why? Because reviewing the Quran allows you to remember what you know, recall what you have forgotten, increase in your Eman and to have the motivation to do good.
What is 100 meter kakum and recall when we took your covenant saying do not shed each other's blood or evict one another from your homes, then you acknowledge this while you're witnessing, then you are those same ones who are killing one another, and evicting a party of your people from their homes, cooperating against them insane and aggression. And if they come to you as captives, you ransom them, then you remember your folk, although their eviction was forbidden to you in the first place. So do you believe in part of the Scripture and disbelieve in part, this was not allowed for the bunny is to let you nor is this allowed for us that we just select from the religion what we
like and we leave what we don't like. Then what is the recompense for those who do that among you, except disgrace in worldly life, when a person only takes from the religion what they like and leave the rest than this is something that brings about humiliation and on the Day of Resurrection, they will be sent back to the severest of punishment each time they try to come out they will be sent back. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. So remember, that he man requires from us that we surrender to our Lord, fully and completely. Those are the ones who have bought the life of this world in
exchanged for the hereafter. So the punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be aided. And we did certainly give most of the total, and followed up after him with messengers. And we gave Risa the son of Miriam clear proofs, and supported him with the pure spirit meaning gibreel. But is it not that every time a messenger came to you or children of Israel, he, with what your souls did not desire? You were arrogant, and a party of messengers you denied, and another party you killed? Meaning if someone told you what was right, what was wrong, you didn't want to hear them. And this is the height of arrogance. And this is something that we need to reflect over also,
because the moment someone tells us what is right or what is wrong, we tell them to mind their own business. We don't allow this anymore. This was the behavior of the bunny is Surah Al, Allah says, we'll call your Kuru buena. And they said, Our hearts are wrapped. Meaning we're full of knowledge we don't need to know. But in fact, Allah has cursed them for their disbelief. When a person does not wish to learn anymore, does not wish to be reminded them this is a sign of danger. So little is it that they believe
and when they're came to them a Book from Allah, confirming that which was with them, although before they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieved. They were waiting for the final messenger. But then, when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu radiocentre was not from among them, he was an Arab. So the curse of Allah will be upon the disbelievers. How wretched is that for which they sold themselves, that they would disbelieve in what Allah has revealed, because of their outrage, that Allah would send out his favor upon whom He wills from among his servants. So the real problem was actually
jealousy. That why has this messenger come from the Arabs? Why not from us? So they returned, having earned wrath upon wrath, and for such disbelievers is a humiliating punishment. And when it is said to them, believe in what Allah has revealed, they say we believe in only what was revealed to us. And they disbelieve in what came after it, while it is the truth, confirming that which is with them, meaning the Quran confirms the thought. It does not reject it, but they reject the Quran say, then why did you kill the prophets of Allah before? If you are indeed believers, if you claim to believe in your book, then why did you kill the very prophets who reminded you to follow that book?
And Moosa had certainly brought you clear proofs. But then you took the calf in worship after that, while you were wrongdoers. Imagine the Prophet of Allah was amongst them, and yet they worship the calf. How shocking is that? What is 100? Me soccer comb and recall when we took your covenant, what a foreigner folk okumoto and we raised over you the mount saying who Duma Tina combi take what we have given you with determination was Maru. And listen, they said instead, Samir, now, we're all Cena, we here and we disobey. We're not going to listen, we're not going to comply. We choose to do differently. Why? Why did they say this? What we should he will feel kulu behemoths radiological
free him and their hearts absorbed the worship of the calf because of their disbelief. This shows us that when a person knowingly chooses to disobey Allah, then they get caught in some other fitna, in the extreme love of something else, so much so that they forget themselves. And they also forget Allah say, how wretched is that which your faith enjoins upon you, if you should be believers, meaning you claim to be believers is this belief.
say oh profit, if the home of the hereafter with Allah is for you alone, and not the other people then wish for death if you should be truthful. You see, just like us. The bunny is what you believe that Jenna was reserved for them, no matter what they did. You see, we should have hope. And we should have your pain that yes, the one who says La Ilaha Illa Ma. Ultimately they will enter Jannah but with that hope there should also be fear. We should be hopeful of Allah's mercy and forgiveness, but we should also fear his disapproval. Because think about it. How many sins did Adam really ceram commit because of which he was removed from Jenna. It was just one bite, only one violation and
because of how many counts
was a belief removed from Allah's mercy. It began with just one rejection, one refusal. And we learn in Hades that a person utters one word, and he doesn't even think much of it. But because of that one word, he falls in hell for 70,000 years. We should not despair of Allah's mercy. But we should also not be blind to our reality. We should remain fearful of Allah. And remember that this is only an Allah's hand, it is up to him, he can forgive whom he wants, and he can punish whomever he wants. So we should keep seeking forgiveness from Allah, that Allah forgive us for what we have done knowingly, and forgive us for what we have done unknowingly.
But they will never wish for death ever, because of what their hands have put forth, meaning they know exactly where they stand. And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers and you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life, even more than those who associate others with Allah. Meaning the mercy Cain are not even as greedy for life, as these people are. One of them wishes that he could be granted life for 1000 years. But it would not remove him in the least from the coming punishment, that he should be granted long life. And Allah is seeing of what they do. Meaning a long life does not save one from their final outcome. or delay does not mean avoidance. Ultimately, all
of us have to return to Allah. Say whoever is an enemy to Djibouti, it is none but he who has brought the Quran down upon your heart Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by permission of Allah, confirming that which was before it, and as guidance and good tidings for the believers. You see the Bani Israel they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but who is it that brings you revelation? And he told him it is gibreel they said, Oh, but we don't like him because your bill used to bring punishment. Allah subhanaw taala says over here for a no hoonah Zilla who are la kobika be hidden in La gibreel does not bring any revelation or any other without the command of
Allah. And then we see in this idea that what jabril brings Revelation the Quran it is who then will Bushra lil MOOC meaning it is guidance and good news. For those who believe Subhan Allah, the Quran gives instruction. It brings you guidance. It shows you the way and it also brings good news. It also gives hope and encouragement. Man can I do well Lila, whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels, and as messengers, and gibreel and Mika eelde, then Indeed, Allah is an enemy, that Indeed, Allah is an enemy to the disbelievers.
And We have certainly revealed to you verses which are clear proofs, and no one would deny them except the defiantly disobedient. Is it not true that every time they took a covenant, a party of them threw it away, meaning every time they made promises with Allah, they broke them. But in fact, most of them do not believe. And when a messenger from Allah came to them, confirming that which was with them, a party of those who had been given the Scripture, through the scripture of Allah behind their backs, as if they did not even know as if they had no idea about what the scripture said. Remember, throwing the book of Allah behind the back means that a person gives more importance to
other things, instead of the book of Allah. They would rather recite, read, study something else, they would rather spend time with something else. It is not wrong, to read other things, it's perfectly fine. But if a person does not give importance to the Quran at all, they prefer other things, other speeches, other books, other things over the Quran, then this is a problem. And this is something that we all need to reflect over. We all need to check ourselves that how much of our time is spent with the Quran, and especially reflecting on the Quran. Because remember, reciting the Quran is good. memorizing the Quran is excellent. But the purpose of the Quran is not fulfilled by
just reading and memorizing it. The Quran is supposed to be understood. It is supposed to be followed. It is supposed to remove darkness from our lives. So understanding the Quran is necessary for all of us. And it is not enough to just read the translation once or twice. revision is important. Studies important and a person must continue to reflect on it. Sofia Bennett, Rena said the people have decorated the
On with silk covers. They have decorated it with gold and silver, but they fail to act upon it. And this is they're throwing it behind their backs. Meaning they've made the book very expensive, very beautiful, but they don't actually fulfill its purpose. So the bunny is through he abandoned the book of Allah. They threw it behind their back as if it did not exist. It did not exist in their lives. It had no place in their lives. So what is it that they turn to? What is it that they filled their time with? What Theobroma turtle shell clean, and they followed instead, what the devils had recited during the reign of Sulaiman. It was not so a man who disbelieved but the devils
disbelieved. What was that disbelief? What was that coffered? It was teaching people magic. When the people when people leave the Quran, then what is it that they pursue? It is things like this. So they followed the so they, so they followed, instead of the book of Allah, they followed what the devils recited. They taught people magic, and what was revealed to the two angels at Babylon, her route and my route. But the two angels did not teach anyone unless they said, We are a trial. So do not disbelieve by practicing magic. And yet they learn from them, that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife, and you see this disease has become so prevalent today. So
many people suffer because of magic. Families are destroyed. people's health, people's wealth, their peace of mind. It's ruined. Why? What is the reason? Why do people resort to magic jealousy, that they're not happy with the blessings that other people have? And this jealousy, remember, it goes against a man. A McDuffie is a person whose heart is clean, and what he feels pain, of hurt of enduring difficulty. And that is perfectly fine. You're allowed to feel hurt, you're allowed to feel pain, but he does not keep resentment and jealousy in their heart for others. And remember that every time you feel some pain in your heart, because of some old wounds even because, because
certain things that trigger old wounds, right, they trigger that pain, and every single time that a person turns to Allah, then there is reward, there is reward in that pain. But the believer does not bear jealousy. And that jealousy does not lead him to cause harm to others, to resort to lowly ways, such as doing magic on others. But they do not harm anyone through it, except by permission of Allah. And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the children of Israel, you certainly knew that whoever purchased it would not have in the hereafter any share, and wretched as that gain for which they sold themselves if they only knew.
So remember that magic?
Bismillah AR Are you able to hear No?
Okay, and 100 enough Sorry about that.
Or the building the ship analogy. So in this idea, we see that magic has its effect, but only with the permission of Allah. So instead of being afraid of magic, and fearing that someone might do magic on us or they have done magic on us, instead of living with this constant fear, we need to turn to Allah subhanaw taala to protect us. You see when it is cold outside, you protect yourself by wearing
warm clothes, when it is hot, you make arrangements. So just like that when you sense the jealousy of people, or when you fear the evil of shaitan then regularly read draws for your protection. And remember that the vicar of Allah is actually a fortress, it is a protection, you are safe because of the vicar of Allah. And because of the vicar of Allah, nothing can harm you. So be confident. Allah says Willow under whom amanu what the coal lemma Suba to Minar in dilla he hide low can we Allah moon and if they had believed and feared Allah, instead of practicing magic, then the reward from Allah would have been far better. Only if they knew if they only knew.
Yeah, uh, you Halina amanu all you who have believed, do not say laurina, meaning to Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but instead say, on Luna, and listen attentively, and for the disbelievers is a painful punishment. You see, the Sahaba over here are taught the etiquettes of a gathering, that when you are sitting in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and you wish for him to repeat something for you then do not say La Nina, use a better word. The word loreena was actually misused by the people of the book, they would say to the Prophet, sallAllahu, wasallam or Arina, instead of Marina, they would miss pronounce it. Why, because there are no means
our shepherd. So they would say that in order to make fun of him, and their inner animosity would come out like this, it would surface like this in cheap ways. So people will behave like this. There's no need to waste your time arguing with them. Simply change your ways. And there are certain people who like to tease you who like to belittle you who like to shame you, or pick fights with you on every little thing. So don't waste your time fighting them. Simply avoid conflict. What a beautiful lesson we have been taught over here.
Neither those who disbelief from the People of the Scripture nor the polytheists wish that any good should be sent down to you from your Lord. But Allah selects for his mercy whom He wills and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. We do not abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, except that we bring forth one that is better than it or similar to it. alum darlin and Allah Allah cliche in caddied Do you not know that Allah is over all things competent? alum thar alum and Allah Allah whom will cause somehow it will? Do you not know that to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and that you have not besides Allah muhuali Yin, will aniseed, any protector or any
helper, or do you owe believers intend to ask your messenger as Moosa was asked before, are you going to treat your profit the way the bunny is thought you've treated theirs, and whoever exchanges faith for disbelief has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way.
Many of the People of the Scripture wish they could turn you back to disbelief after you have believed. Why, out of envy from themselves, even after the truth has become clear to them. So pardon and overlook until Allah delivers his command. How beautiful Indeed, Allah is over all things competent, will appeal solid, what are two circuit and established prayer and gives a cat that's it. know where to cut the Moly unfussy come in higher and whatever good you put forward for yourselves, that you do who are in the law, you will find it with Allah, meaning every little and big deed that you do for the sake of Allah, you will find it with him. Indeed, Allah of what you do, is seeing.
You see sometimes we think that as long as we have prayed our Salah, and we have given our as a cat, that's enough, then there's nothing else that we need to do. We think that's the maximum good that we can do. And then we are free to do whatever we want, we can indulge in the world and pursue our desires. And yes, any as long as it's permissible, it is fine. But remember, that there is no limit to the good that you can do. The door to good is vast. Any good deed you do big or small, whether it is internal or external, in the heart, or on the body, private or public in word or inaction, any deed that Allah loves and approves off, then we should be eager to do it. The believer is eager for
height. We're about to cut the Molly unfussy come in hide in that you do who are in the law. Sometimes
We look at other people and we say, oh, they're not doing much. So why should I bother? No. Our example should be a Serbia Kuhn, those who are ahead of us, not those who are lingering behind, and they say, none will enter Paradise except one who is a Jew, or according to Christians, a Christian. Allah says, that is merely their wishful thinking that they assume that they're upon the truth, that they are the ones who are going to paradise say, produce your proof if you should be truthful. This problem is also common in many Muslims. There are so many sectarian divisions and these labels that we give one another and to ourselves, and then we declare people to be janessa T or Johanna me and
things like that. Allah says Bella Muslim or what you hula. Yes, on the contrary, who was that that will be saved? Whoever submits his face in Islam to Allah, La bake my Lord, you commanded me? I will surrender to you, man s lemma would you hula la vie. kolomela bake wahoo or more sin while being a doer of good fella who a Jew who were in the lobby. So he will have his reward with his Lord, what a homophone are lay him, Well our homea has are known, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve? It is such people who will be free of worries, who will be free of fear. So what is the lesson in this is that we must have a class, we must be sincere to Allah, and we must have
your son, we must be excellent, do the best that we can in worshiping and obeying Allah subhanaw taala. The Jews say, the Christians have nothing true to stand on. And the Christian say, the Jews have nothing to stand on, although they both recite the same scripture. Thus, the polytheists speak the same as their words, but Allah who will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ. So it's important that instead of basing our lives on whims and assumptions, we should learn what Allah really wants us to do. Woman alemi mama nama saggi the law and who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of Allah for being mentioned, in his
mosques. They prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in his mosques and strive to word their destruction. They cause a disturbance in the masjid,
bloodshed, noise, fighting facade, all of these are serious crimes, it is not allowed for them to enter them except in fear for them in this world is disgrace. Why? Because they turn their places of worship into crime scenes. So for them is disgrace in the world, and they will have in the Hereafter, a great punishment. Remember, causing facade. disturbing the peace of any place is wrong, but disturbing the peace of the mothership is worse. And remember that the masjid is for Allah, it should be used to elevate his name. So we should all be careful and refrain from doing things that cause people to run away from the masjid.
And also we see over here, that such people for them is humiliation in the world and a great punishment in the hereafter. So we should ask Allah to protect us from disgrace in the world and punishment in the hereafter. Allahumma CINAHL Kubota now Phil ohmori coonley her What a good name and his your dunya where are they bill Akira? Well, Illa Hill machico Alma herb and to Allah belongs the east and the west. So wherever you might turn, there is the face of Allah. Indeed, Allah is all encompassing and knowing they say, Allah has taken a son, Exalted is He super Hana, who, To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. All are devoutly obedient to Him. Everything obeys
Allah, ask yourself, What do I do? The fact is that he is Originator of the heavens and the earth. When he decrees a matter. He only says to it be and it is, this is Allah's power. Those who do not know say, Why does a lot not speak to us, or they're come to us a sign thus spoke those before them like their words, their hearts resemble each other. We have shown clearly the signs to a people who are certain in faith in our Salah kabil help, but she run one of the run. Indeed, we have sent to you a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the truth as a bringer of good tidings and a warner the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give good news to those who obey Allah. And he gave warning
to those who disobey why to threaten them to
Shame No, no in order to help them stop their wrongdoing, and you will not be asked about the companions of hellfire.
And the fact is that never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you, they will never approve of your religion of your law of your way of your Prophethood of your book until you follow their religion. Say Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the only guidance all in the Huda Mahi, who will Huda. If a person wants to be guided, then they have to follow the guidance of Allah, if you were to follow their desires, after what has come to you of knowledge, you would have against Allah, no protector or helper. So after gaining knowledge, one should not follow the desires of people or the desires of the nups a normal human machine said that shaylen has snares and traps, the traps of
shade plon they are to exalt ungratefully in the blessings of Allah, to boast about the gifts of Allah, to have pride at the expense of the slaves of Allah, and to follow desire for other than the sake of Allah, meaning instead of obeying Allah, when a person follows their desire, then such a person has actually been caught in the trap of shaytaan so they must do something to set themselves free alladhina artina whom will Kitab those to whom we have given the book yet Luna who helped katella watty they recite it with its true recital, Allah iica you may know Nabil, they are the ones who truly believe in it.

It is not just to recite it with perfect that gwede or with beautiful voice, but it is to declare the lawful of the Quran as lawful and the unlawful as unlawful. It is to believe in it's more come and the Mata shabby to believe in every in all of the contents of the Quran. And it is to follow the morcom meaning the commands that the Quran gives that a person should follow them.

Do something for yourself before that day. We're at patella Ibrahima. Oh boohoo be Kelly Martin for uttama Han and mentioned when Ibrahim was tried by his Lord with commands, and he fulfilled them. Allah said, Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people. The one who passes the test is worthy of leadership, Ibrahim said Is this also for my descendants. Allah said my covenant does not include the wrongdoers. So this leadership is not inherited. And mentioned when we made the house, a place of return for the people, the Kaaba,
and a place of security. And take all believers from the standing place of Ibrahim A place of prayer. And we charged Ibrahim and a smart eelde saying, purify my house, clean the Kaaba, for those who perform tawaf and those who are staying there for worship and those who bow and prostrate in prayer. We learned in this idea that the Kaaba is Mahabharata Lynas, a place of return for the people, may Allah allow us to return to his house again and again. And mentioned when Ibrahim said, My Lord, make this a secure city and provide its people with fruits, whoever of them believes in Allah and the Last Day, Allah said, and whoever disbelieves I will grant him enjoyment for a little
meaning in this life, then I will force him to the punishment of the Fire. And wretched is the destination and mentioned when Ibrahim was raising the foundations of the house, and with him his Marine, both father and son, worshiping Allah, building his house, saying
robina Taco Bell Mina, our Lord, accept this from us, in Naka, anta Samir al alim, indeed you are the Hearing, the Knowing they were building the house of Allah, the Kaaba, and still they were calling upon him.
And what were they saying? Allah accept this from us. The believer is concerned about the acceptance of their deeds, not just performance. This is their wish that he or Allah, please accept this. And this was the humility of these great prophets. And we should also be humble that no matter what we do, we should beg Allah to accept our deeds, we should not take it for granted, nor should we boast about our deeds or consider that we are doing a lot of favor by doing something no this is Allah's favor on us. Robin our dear Allah Muslim any luck woman's the Ria Tina ohmmeter Muslim utter luck, our Lord and make us Muslims in submission to you and from our descendants in Muslim nation in
submission to you what Eddie Naaman se Cana and show us our rights, our ways of worship, what toolbar Alena and accept our repentance in Naka under the web of Rahim, indeed, you are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful more the laws of Ibrahim in a smart he'll look at their draws, that it will, we are constructing this building, but you also give us the ability to worship you. You see, sometimes we participate in the building of mosques, and in the various activities and services that are offered at the mosque. But what about worship? What about worship? Allah Ibrahim is that I'm said, well, arena man se Cana show us our ways of worship, meaning enable us to worship

And remember that just because we're not able to go to the masjid these days, it doesn't mean that we stop worshiping Allah. We should busy ourselves in making Dora in making Likud and especially doba Ibrahim Ali Salaam, was making girls over here. And his daughters were not just for himself or for the people of his time. But he was also making darauf for the people to come. He was truly a visionary. What was he praying for? He said, what have been our birth fee him Rasulullah our Lord and send among them meaning my progeny, the people who will live in this land, the people who will
come in the future, send among them a messenger from themselves. What will he do?

Indeed you are the Exalted in Might the wise, look at the concern that Ibrahim already said I'm had for his descendants, that will Allah, send them a prophet who will recite your book to them? Who will teach them your book, who will teach them wisdom, who will purify them from the inside and the outside? Who will make them better people? Think about it. What do our authors do
we make for our children, even if we don't have children right now. But what do I What do we make for our future generations? That what should they get? What what is it that we pray for? For our children? That what should they get in our lives? And even after our lives? Typically we pray for their marriage. We pray for their education. We pray for their wealth and their health. What about their Deen? We should pray for both Robinette atina. for dunya has center will actually roti Hassan and Ibrahim are nice and I'm also prayed for both. He said provide them of fruits, give them food give them sustenance, but he wanted not just worldly sustenance, not just physical sustenance, he
wanted spiritual sustenance because the real life is the life of the hearts. So we need to think are we concerned for the religious education of our children, their spiritual development as we are for their physical and worldly development? We are concerned about their physical health. What about their spiritual health? We are concerned about their worldly education. What about their religious education? Why are we concerned only about this life? We should be concerned about this life and the eternity the afterlife.

In a hadith in Sahih Muslim even our bus for the Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite this ayah in the first record of the Sunnah prayers of budget.

Just like when a cloth is dyed with a certain color, that color becomes its identity. And so the religion of Allah, worshipping Allah
alone should become our identity, say, oh, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, do you argue with us about Allah, while he is our Lord and your Lord? For us?

Someone asked that, how often should we recite Surah Al Baqarah to get these benefits?
Well, this is something that should be done regularly. So even if you're you know, a person is not able to recite all of sootel Baccarat every day, then at least some of it. So, perhaps you can make it a habit to recite the beginning verses of Surah Al Baqarah, in in your Salah. Maybe the last few verses of Surah Baqarah at another time during the day, but you need this should be something consistent. And if you are unable to recite yourself perhaps you can play the recitation, but sweater Baccarat it should be recited in the house any on a more regular basis not that we only recited in the month of Ramadan.
