and also panel Darla says in the Quran enamul me noon alladhina either Luke here Allah who were Geeta kulu boo home, were either to Leah to LA him I to who? That whom imana why Allah be him yet our Calhoun the believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful. Let us examine the state of our hearts is the heart attentive towards Allah. And when his Verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith. Again, let us examine our hearts. The purpose of listening to the Quran of reading the Quran is to increase in our faith, to strengthen our faith. So let us not just listen to the Quran with our ears, allow it to reach the heart. What allow Rob

00:01:37--> 00:02:33

Bohemia to work alone, and upon their Lord. They rely because when they learn the Quran, they learn who their Lord really is. So they begin to rely upon him. And as they learn the Quran, they're moved to action which action a levina up Muna Salah woman mas akuna humean. Phil Kuhn, the ones who established prayer and from what We have provided them, they spend, Allah says about such people, Allah ecomo mina haka, those are the believers in truth, la Honda Raja tuner, endora be him, for them are degrees of high position with their Lord, when mouthfeel and forgiveness what is on Kadeem and a noble provision. In these verses we learn that when the verses of Allah are recited upon the

00:02:33--> 00:03:30

believers, it increases them in faith. She has already said that this means that the reason for this is that they listen to the verses of Allah with a present heart. They listen to the verses of Allah with attentiveness. So when they listen, they actually reflect upon them. And when they reflect upon the verses, this results in their increase of faith, because the double reflect reflecting upon the Quran is actually one of the actions of the heart. So when a person does the boot on the Quran, what happens? First of all, they get to know meanings which they were unaware of, or they get reminded of matters which they had forgotten, or they develop the desire to perform good deeds, or the desire to

00:03:30--> 00:04:18

receive the generosity and reward of their Lord, or the fear of punishment, and the fear of sin is produced in their heart. And all of these matters, increased faith. I asked Allah subhanaw taala, that as we go through the Quran, as we reflect upon each juice every day, this becomes a means of increase in our faith also, so that we come to know of what we were previously unaware of, we get reminded of things which we had forgotten, we develop the motivation to perform good deeds, we develop the desire to receive the reward of our Lord, and we develop the fear of his punishment, and we stay away from sin. May Allah subhanaw taala increase us in our faith, I mean,

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

inshallah, we'll begin just number three of the Quran

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

tilka also lufa Baraka whom Allah barab min hohman Kalam Allah will have our barber Honda Rajat those messengers, some of them we caused to exceed others. Among them were those to whom Allah spoke and raised some of them in degrees. We see over here, that Allah subhanaw taala mentions his profits His messengers, the fact is that Allah subhanaw taala has sent prophets and messengers in every era for the guidance of

00:05:00--> 00:05:54

Mankind, it is said that there were about 124,000 prophets or in some narrations 114,000. Regardless, there have been over 100,000 prophets, and out of them 300 were messengers, there were Russell, and among them also, Allah subhanaw taala chose some above others in different ways. For instance, five of the messengers they're known as a Lula Azzam, those of determination and there are no alayhis salaam Ibrahim alayhis, salaam masala has said I'm reciting his Salaam and Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So these messengers were such that some of them were given preference over others. And this was in a number of different ways. We see that even within the creation, we

00:05:54--> 00:06:42

see how things are not always equal. The five fingers on your hand are not the same. They're not identical, people do not have equal wealth, all trees are not the same. And there are multiple wisdoms behind these differences. We so our job is not to constantly compare between things, and where something has been given preference over another, you we should accept that reality, we should not feel jealous over there, because this is the decision of Allah subhanaw taala This is his distribution. And if we are given preference in some way, then we should be grateful for that, we should acknowledge that and we should thank Allah subhanaw taala for that. So the messengers, some

00:06:42--> 00:07:30

of whom Allah chose above others, how was that Allah tells us, among them were those to whom Allah spoke, meaning he directly spoke to some of them, such as musala his Sanam or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he raised some of them in degrees, meaning they were given preference in other ways. For example, Ibrahim or a salon was made the Imam he is the father of the prophets. He has the title of Helene Allah, the friend of Allah. And we gave Isa the son of Miriam, clear proofs, what kind of clear proofs he could heal the blind, the leper, he performed various miracles that were unique to him amongst all of the prophets and messengers, and he performed them all by the

00:07:30--> 00:08:14

permission of Allah. And we supported him with the pure spirit, meaning with the angel gibreel. So he started his Salaam even spoke as a child. If Allah had willed, those exceeding them, would not have fought each other, after the clear proofs had come to them, but they differed, and some of them believed, and some of them disbelieved, meaning. This is what happened to the nations of the prophets. And if Allah had willed, they would not have fought each other, but Allah does what he intends, meaning Allah gives freedom to his servants, and some and some of them misuse this freedom. Then the believers are addressed. Yeah, uh, you have levena amanu. All you who have believed

00:08:14--> 00:09:06

unfaithful spend from what mimar was a canal comb from that which we have provided you give forward pass on from the things that we have given you. Don't just keep everything to yourself, and why give for your own benefit. Before there comes a day meaning the Day of Judgment, what kind of it is that in which there is no exchange and no friendship and no intercession and the deniers they are truly the wrongdoers, so those who do not believe in Allah, do not give him his right. Such people are lying, they're committing loan wrong on themselves. It hasn't been said that those who do learn those who do wrong commit Cofer know, those who commit kufr are the ones who commit volume. So this

00:09:06--> 00:09:57

shows us that disbelief is actually a form of injustice. And now, the greatest verse of the Quran is mentioned, which is Ayatollah could see the verse of the throne, which is the best description of Allah azza wa jal. This is a verse that protects the reciter against the shale clean against the devil's it is a verse which takes its reciter to paradise. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever recites if at all could see immediately after every fall prayer after every prescribed prayer, then there will be nothing standing between him and his entering paradise except death, meaning the person who recites it after every Salah, then they will go to Jana. So add this to the

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

list of things that you're going to do that

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

I must recite ayatul kursi after every fault prayer, what is ayatul? kursi Allah hula ilaha illa who will hire you as a young lad who do who sin atone wala Nome, la Houma is semi watty when I fill up, man, the Lady ashfur who in the Who? Ellerbee ibni Yara Allah Ma Ma baina ad him one our hongfa home. What are you here Luna B Shea mineral mi e Illa. V Masha was the arco cu who somehow Swati well. What are your Oda who have low Houma wahoo will early eular Aleem.

00:10:40--> 00:11:38

We learned earlier about the power of Allah's Name, the greatness and the blessing that his name contains this ayatul kursi contains five names of Allah, not one, but five. And it also contains 26 attributes of Allah, the attributes of Allah are His qualities, his traits, such as the fact that he is one or the fact that drowsiness and sleep do not overtake him. This idea is filled with the praises of Allah. And this is why it is the greatest verse, not the longest, but the most magnificent, the greatest verse, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in, in Allah Halle sun and worship attain to conditional Malik that it, it has a tongue and lips and it declares the

00:11:38--> 00:12:35

purity, the holiness of the sovereign, meaning it glorifies Allah subhanaw taala What does this I mean, Allah, there is no deity except Him, meaning Allah is the only one worthy of worship. Why? Because he because He alone is Allah He alone is the one true God, Who is he? And hey, are you the ever living the Sustainer of all existence, he is the ever living, he is the one who is perfect in his existence. So he was always there, and he will always remain because he is perfect in himself, he is perfect in all of his qualities. This is why he will never die, he will never suffer any decline, because he is free from any imperfection he is independent of all in fact, he is the source

00:12:35--> 00:13:35

of life and hate. And along with that, he is a young, the Sustainer of all existence. So he is extremely independent. So he needs no one. But everyone needs him. Everyone depends on him. He is perfect in his actions. Otherwise, how could anything exist? And how you look a young you see if we don't get food, we die. If we develop respiratory issues, we don't get oxygen, we would die. A tiny microscopic virus can cripple us It can bring our lives, our infrastructures, our businesses to a complete halt. This is why we must learn to rely upon not ourselves but Allah And hey, what our color Anil Hey yo levy layer mood, Allah says, rely upon the ever living the one who does not die.

00:13:36--> 00:13:53

Our reality is that can lumen la have fun, everyone upon the earth will perish. waivable call wedge hula beaker dual jelly while a crumb and they will remain the face of your Lord, owner of Majesty and Honor. So who is Allah?

00:13:55--> 00:14:50

So who is Allah He is and how you will consume. Not only does everyone's life and existence depend upon him, their sustenance also depends upon him. So if he does not give, if he does not allow, not a thing could exist, our existence is proof of His perfection. Our existence is proof of his knowledge of his care. So perfect is he that neither drowsiness overtakes him nor sleep, neither sleep overcomes him, nor does he sleep by choice, because sleep remember is a form of imperfection, and Allah is free of any imperfection he is and how you will consume, he does not get tired, he does not need rest, so do not confuse him with the creation. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens,

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

and whatever is on the earth, meaning he is the real owner. So everything besides Him is actually owned by him. He

00:15:00--> 00:15:56

is the creator. So everything besides him is his creation, he is the giver. So everything besides Him is provided by him. So all our power less before the all powerful, how power less? Who is it that can intercede with him except by his permission, no one can even speak before him without his permission. This is why our ultimate concern should be to please Allah subhanaw taala because the dunya and the Akira both belong to Allah, He knows what is presently before them, and what will be after them. This is how vast his knowledge is, remember, Allah's knowledge is a Shamil meaning it includes everything. So nothing is absent from his knowledge, it is kamin it is perfect, so it is

00:15:56--> 00:16:46

free of any error, no matter what place it is, no matter what time it is, no matter what date it is, Allah knows about it all. So no one can lie to him, no one can hide from him, no one can escape him. And they encompass not a thing of his knowledge, except for what He wills. You see, we are only able to learn something, when Allah allows us to know about it. So knowledge is actually sustenance, it is a gift from Allah. And we are only able to know about Allah, that which he allows us and that is only through revelation, because he is more knowledgeable about himself than anyone else. So if we want to know who Allah is, let us not make assumptions, let us not hear what people say, let us see

00:16:46--> 00:17:42

how he describes himself was the okoto cu who somehow worked, he went out of his core to see his footstool extends over the heavens and the earth, meaning it is so vast that it could contain all of the skies and all of the earths and yet the curacy is not his greatest creation, that is there are so vast his his soupon and their preservation tyres him not. He's been guarding them from the beginning, constantly providing deciding giving, and his treasures have not diminished. And he is allegedly ultra lean, He is the Most High. So he is above all, and everyone is beneath him. Everyone is below him. And he is ultra lean, the most Great, so he is greater than all and everyone is weak

00:17:42--> 00:18:31

before him, learn a claw have a dean, there shall be no compulsion in the religion. This means no one can force another to become Muslim. And there is no need to do so. Because the right course has become clear from the wrong. So when a person is Muslim, they must adhere to the laws of Islam. But when someone is not Muslim, then there is no need to force them. There's no need to coerce them, because the truth is clear. So whoever disbelieves in pa hoots. And remember thought is anything that is worshipped besides Allah, whatever name it has, whoever disbelieves in thought huit and believes in Allah, only Allah, then such a person has grasped the most trustworthy handhold such a

00:18:31--> 00:19:25

handhold that has no break in it, meaning he has adopted a religion that will provide a solution to every problem, an answer to every confusion, and Allah is Ever hearing and ever knowing Allah who will be your Lavina amanu. Allah is the ally of those who believe this is the benefit of a man that a person receives the friendship of Allah, the help of Allah. And what happens when Allah is a friend, to those who believe you who read your home in a lumati ila node, he brings them out from darkness into the light, because he loves them. So he rectifies their affairs for them, he takes care of them, he helps them and he does not surrender them. He does not leave them to anyone else.

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

He ensures their guidance, he gives them light, the light of a man, the light of knowledge, the light of clarity. And when Allah is the wellI of a person in the world, this means that he will be their welly their friend in the hereafter as well. This is why make this your ultimate goal. Make Allah your friend so Allah who will be your friend, and those who disbelieve those who reject Allah, those who turn away from their Lord than their allies are thought and what do they do then they take them out of the light

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

Into Darkness Subhan Allah, once upon a time there were in light, but when they turned away from Allah than the TA who took them away, out of light into darkness, so now they're misguided, falling in wrong ways. Those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide eternally they're in. And this is such a terrible end that a person can have. Now in the following verses, through different stories, we are shown how Allah subhanaw taala is the Wali, the friend of those who believe how he guides them, how he strengthens them. Have you not considered the one who argued with Ibrahim about his Lord, merely because Allah had given him kingship? It is said that this was Kingdom route. When

00:20:46--> 00:21:29

Ibrahim said, My Lord is the one who gives life and causes deaths. What an excellent proof Ibrahim art is set on gave related to the origin final end of the creation. So this man said, Nimrod said, I give life and I also cause death. It is said that he sent for two prisoners, and he killed one of them. And he spared the other and he said, See, I gave death and I and I let one live. Ibrahim, right. He said, I'm said, Indeed, Allah who brings up the sun from the east. So bring it up from the west. Ibrahim Reddy said I'm didn't argue here. He just gave him another challenge. Okay, if you claim that you do all of these things, then try this. Show us your power. So what happened? The

00:21:29--> 00:22:17

disbeliever was overwhelmed, overwhelmed by astonishment, he was left speechless, but still he did not accept the truth. Why? Because Willa hula deal, como Gali mein and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing, people who are the wrongdoers, those who refuse even after seeing the truth, those who have made up their mind to deny no matter what evidence is presented to them. Now one other example is given or consider such an example, as the one who passed by a township which had fallen into ruin. He said, how will Allah bring this to life after its death? Meaning he wondered about the afterlife, about the resurrection, like many people do. So Allah caused him to die for 100 years.

00:22:17--> 00:23:01

Then he revived him. And he said, How long have you remained, the man said, I have remained a day or part of a day, Allah said, rather, you have remained 100 years, look at your food and your drink. It has not changed with time, meaning your food and drink did not grow stale or moldy, because that is what Allah subhanaw taala wanted. But it should remain unchanged over time. And look at your donkey. It is said that it was completely we learned in the ayat that it was completely decayed, the bones were rotting, and we will make you a sign for the people. How because this man woke up after 100 years, this was truly a miracle. And look at the bones, meaning of your donkey, how we raised them,

00:23:01--> 00:23:49

and then we cover them with flesh. So literally, the donkey was revived back to life in front of him. And and when it became clear to him, he said, I know our alemu I know that Allah is over all things competent, Allah can do all things Allah can bring life to those who are dead. We see that Nimrod was not guided, even though he was given a clear evidence. Why? Because he had already made up his mind about what he wanted to believe. So he was merely arguing with Ibrahim or his son, he was not seeking answers, he was debating. This person, on the other hand was guided. Why? Because he had questions. He was curious, he wanted to know. So Allah subhanaw taala guided him, what is the

00:23:49--> 00:24:42

difference? The difference is that one came from a place of arrogance, and the other person came from a place of genuine, humble curiosity. Remember, it is not wrong to ask it is not wrong to wonder. But it is wrong to think I know it all. It is wrong to be arrogant before the Lord of the worlds. So we need to look into ourselves. If we are really seeking guidance than Allah who will grant us certainty he will dispel our doubts because Allah who will he EULA Dena amanu Allah is the friend of those who believe he guides them. And now a third example is given and mentioned when Ibrahim said my lord show me what I'll be adding me Oh my Lord, show me gave it to heal Mota, how

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

you will give life to the dead. Allah subhanaw taala said, Have you not believed? Ibrahim said yes when aquileia Toma in Nickleby, but I asked only that my heart may be satisfied. We see that Nimrod had denied the second person was dead.

00:25:00--> 00:25:50

For, and Ibrahim on his salon was certain in faith. And yet Ibrahim alayhis salam wondered, the thing is that each person wonders, but from a different place. Ibrahim right his center wanted intimate Nan, he wanted contentment because the heart seeks assurance. So Allah subhanaw taala granted him that assurance how Allah said, Take four birds and commit them to yourself, train them, then after slaughtering them, put on each Hill, a portion of them and then call them, they will come flying to you in haste, and know that Allah is Exalted in Might, and wise. So he can do all things, nothing at all is hard for him. So remember, there are levels of your pain, there are levels of

00:25:50--> 00:26:37

conviction, the first level is available, you're clean, to be convinced of something because of factual knowledge, then is I know your pain, to be convinced of something because of observation. You have seen it with your own eyes, and then is helpfully a pain to be convinced because of experiencing the reality of something. No matter how well a person knows about something, and believes it lace and hubzu calm or aiyana. seeing something is not like knowing it. Observation brings a higher level of faith. And this is why Ibrahim already has said I wanted to see he said Eddie me, show me how will resurrection happen. And it is necessary for us also to strengthen our

00:26:37--> 00:27:29

European to increase to grow in our conviction, because as even Masaru little della horn who said earlier Pino Emmanuel kulu, your pain is complete faith, it is the highest level of faith. So if Ibrahim alayhis salaam requested for intimate Nan for greater conviction, than we are more worthy of that, we should also seek ways of strengthening our faith, learn, ask, seek clarity, but always from a place of humility, always from a place of faith, not rejection, not arrogance, not argumentation. Remember, he man, faith grows with knowledge, and it also grows with righteous deeds. So what kind of good deeds should we perform? We have learned in Surah Al Baqarah, about various good deeds, we

00:27:29--> 00:28:25

have learned about Salah about fasting about Vicar, other good. And here in the following verses we learn about sadaqa specifically spending in the way of Allah, what is sadaqa sadaqa charity the word sadaqa is actually from sleep, which is truthfulness when a person actually truly gives. When a person actually truly believes, then they will spend of what they have. And when a person gives, when a person spends, then it shows the truthfulness of their belief. How true is this person in their love of Allah? How true how honest is this person in believing their religion of Allah, in believing the promises of Allah? So what is the reward of spending in the cause of Allah? Allah says

00:28:25--> 00:28:34

methylone larina Yun Hakuna Amala homefree sebelah the example of those people who spend their wealth in the way of Allah

00:28:35--> 00:29:29

in the way of Allah, what is that example? It is like that of a seed, meaning of grain, which grows seven spikes, one seed, it grows into seven spikes, seven stocks, and then each spike is 100 grains. So how many grains do we have now? 700 and Allah multiplies his reward for whom He wills and Allah is all encompassing and knowing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that whoever spends in the cause of Allah feasable Allah, it will be recorded for him 700 fold. You see one is to spend on those in need, for example, that you spend on their food on their clothing, shelter, medication, and this is excellent. This is Southern coffer which has reward which will be a means of protection for

00:29:29--> 00:29:59

a person on the Day of Judgment. But imagine, if a person spends on Allah, a person spends for his being. You see, one has to spend on a person on a human being for his food for his needs, and the others to spend on Allah for his religion. How blessing is that money which is given to Allah for the cause of his religion, so that people can learn it and they can practice it.

00:30:00--> 00:30:48

They can learn it so that their doubts are removed. Their questions are answered. They develop in there your pain. You see we spend on the promotion of our businesses. But how blessing would that money be, which is spend for the promotion of Allah's religion, the spending, this kind of spending is such that the reward is multiplied. Why is the reward multiplied? Why is it more than any other form of charity, because its impact is far reaching. When you feed a hungry person, you only benefit that hungry person once, and you only benefit one person, they eat the food, and that's it. But when you spend on the religion of Allah, you benefit many, and you benefit them perpetually, in this

00:30:48--> 00:31:39

life, and in the next life. For example, if you'll give money to cover the costs of, for example, an online platform from where people can learn their religion, then imagine every single person who learns from it, who does something good because of what they learned from their, and they're saved from the fire of hell, because of what they learned. And they earned the rewards in paradise because of what they learned. Guess what? You have a share in all of that your charity reached so far, your contribution had an impact on someone's eternity. So then what do you expect? The reward will be for such charity? Why would Allah not multiply your rewards for you, you see, the way that Allah has,

00:31:39--> 00:32:29

the way that Allah has superiority over his creation, than spending on the religion of Allah also has superiority over spending any other cause, this is the most often the most superior form of spending. So make sure that as you spend in different causes, spend, especially for the cause of Allah, to support the religion of Allah so that people can learn the religion spend on such causes. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if somebody gives charity, something that is equal to a date, meaning something very small, from their honestly earned money, because nothing a sense to Allah accepts good than Allah will take it in, in his right hand. And Allah will bring it up for its

00:32:29--> 00:33:16

owner, as any one of you brings up a baby horse till it becomes like a mountain. Imagine, like a mountain. Add to this, the fact that this charity is given in the cause of Allah, how great would be its reward, then it is said, Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, and then do not follow up what they have spent with reminders of it that I gave such and such, or other injury, that I sponsored this platform, and yet, I never got a free entry. Such people will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve, because they have made their investment with the one who definitely causes growth. So we learn the etiquette of

00:33:16--> 00:34:03

spending in the way of Allah from here that do not hurt the feelings of those who have in fact, helped you by accepting your charity. Because remember, there will be a time when there will be nobody to accept your charity, then what will you do? Being able to give is actually a privilege. It's an honor, it's in fact a favor on you, not the one whom you give to so instead of hurting them, and reminding them of the favors that you have done, what is better? Oh, Lamar, roof, kind speech and forgiveness are better than charity, followed by injury. You see hurting people is something that destroys our acts of charity. So first, focus on kind speech on good manners so that when you

00:34:03--> 00:34:48

do give something, you're able to preserve its reward. Willa, honey Yun haleem. And Allah is free of need and forbearing meaning he does not need you to give to his servants and then cause them hurt. Forgiveness as mentioned over here, why? Because sometimes those whom you give to are the same people who actually hurt you, so forgive them. And if you cannot be generous with your money, then be generous with your words, because well, Kelly Matata Heba to sadhaka a good word is a charity than Allah says, Yeah, uh, you Hello, Dina amanu led to the Quito soda, coffee, calm bill money while other all you who have believed do not invalidate your charities with reminders or injury, as

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

does one who spends his wealth only to be seen by the people. Meaning when you give in the way of Allah, then do not show off. Do not give it in order to be seen by others because such a person

00:35:00--> 00:35:45

He does not believe in Allah and the Last Day, because if he did, then he would have given it with sincerity. He would not remind people of it, because if he gave it for Allah, then it doesn't matter whether people remember it or not, Allah remembers it. His example is, his example is like that of a large smooth stone upon which has dust and is hit by a downpour that leaves it bare. they're unable to keep anything of what they have earned. And Allah does not guide the disbelieving people. Meaning whatever they have done, will go waste it will bring no reward whatsoever, their entire reward will be wasted. Their effort will be washed away. The problem is that sometimes we indirectly mentioned

00:35:45--> 00:36:29

the favors we have done to others. Things like you know, we say things like we financially help someone, we got groceries for them, or we paid for their fees, or we gave a ride to someone and this hurts their honor. So be private when it comes to your charity. Because you're not doing this for the sake of people. You are doing this for the sake of Allah. So keep it buried, keep it hidden. Keep it safe and secure with Allah. Don't waste it away. Just like rain washes mud off of stones, leaving them bear don't wash away your good deeds. Those who give charity with sincerity, and then do not follow it with reminders and hurtful words. It is such people who will be saved from fear and

00:36:29--> 00:37:21

grief. And the example of those who spend their wealth seeking means to the approval of Allah Eva de la umodel. Bertie, what does retirement unfussy him and assuring reward for themselves? What is their example it is like that of a garden on high ground which is hit by a downpour. So it yields its fruits in double and even if it is not hit by a downpour than a drizzle is sufficient and Allah of what you do is seeing. So this is what happens when a person gives with sincerity. When a person spends happily whether it is a cat or sadaqa. Than then they experienced the joy, the sweetness of faith, as it is mentioned over here. AB de la Mata la de la What does bita min unfussy him, the

00:37:21--> 00:38:08

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever does three things will experience the thumb, the sweetness of a man and of them is what are applause the cat family he but he bottom behind of Sue, that he happily gives the cat of his wealth. That is do you want him happily? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructed us to fear Allah and perform the five prayers to keep the fasts in the month of Ramadan. And to give the cat happily gives the cat happily and obey the leader. What is the benefit, he said you will enter the agenda of your Lord. So spending for the sake of Allah with happiness with sincerity is a means of entering paradise. Remember, that giving

00:38:08--> 00:39:03

is something that helps the giver before it helps others. Research and positive psychology shows that giving actually makes us happy. Studies have shown that when subjects are given $5 for example, with instructions to give the money to a stranger, their happiness increases more than subjects who are given $20 to spend on themselves. Imagine giving something to someone else will bring you more joy compared to what you spend on yourself. Giving even has a positive impact on our health. Giving promotes cooperation, it promotes social connection, it evokes feelings of gratitude. Giving is contagious, so spend and benefit yourself and bring benefit to others. Allah subhanaw taala asks us

00:39:04--> 00:39:54

would one of you like to have a garden of palm trees and grape vines underneath which rivers flow in which he has from every fruit, but then he is afflicted with old age and has weak offspring. And at that time, his garden is hit by a whirlwind containing fire and all of it is burned. Would you like that to happen to you? Thus does Allah made clear to you his verses that you might give thought. This is the example of the person who works hard for their entire life, investing a whole lot of money into his garden, so much work and effort. But then at the end, it is burned to ashes. It ends when it is completely destroyed when he is in most need of it.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

So remember, if a person's intention is corrupt

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

If they follow their charity, with react with showing off and reminding people of, of the favorite that they have done them of hurting their feelings, then what's going to happen on the Day of Judgment, when they will be most in need of their good deeds, they will find nothing. their deeds will be scattered dust ashes. So a person's so a person should spend, spend on good causes, but spend for the sake of Allah spend with sincerity and do not show off. Just as we take care of our hard earned money, we must also pay attention to preserving our hard earned good deeds. Allah says yeah, are you Hello, Dina amanu Oh, you will have believed spend from the good things which you have

00:40:45--> 00:41:31

earned. Another thing we learned here is that, when we give, we should give from our own earnings and from that which we have produced for you from the earth, meaning give food also. And do not aim toward the defective there from spending from that, while you would not take it yourself except with closed eyes. So give to others what you would like to receive yourself and know that Allah is free of need, and praiseworthy. shaitan threatens you with poverty. Meaning when you're about to give what is good shaitan makes you fear that what will become a view if you give what you have to others, and try lawn orders you to immorality, to be stingy, and to give what is not worth taking,

00:41:31--> 00:42:17

or to show off, while Allah promises you forgiveness from him, and bounty. And Allah is all encompassing and knowing you did hikmah Tamiya Shah, he gives wisdom to whom He wills, and whoever has been given wisdom has certainly been given much good, and none will remember except those of understanding. You see wisdom has mentioned over here. What is wisdom? What is this? Which of a person has they have abundant goodness, they have much good. hikma has been interpreted as the understanding of the Quran, or the knowledge of religion, or the fear of Allah, or the ability to make the right decision, intelligence. And if you think about it, all of this is related to wisdom.

00:42:17--> 00:42:59

Because when a person has wisdom, and they also have resources at their disposal, then they understand they realize what the best investment is, which they can make. Who is it that they should spend on? What cause should they give in? How much should they give. And this is why this is how they accumulate a lot of reward. A lot of goodness, you see people who have good sense of money, they make a lot of profit with their money, they invested in good places. And there are other people who don't have that good sense. So they have that money just sitting with them. They're just spending from it, or just keeping it it's not growing. So the person who has wisdom, who understands

00:42:59--> 00:43:40

how to spend their resources, how to use their time, the resources that are lost pounds, Allah has given them the opportunities that are less panel Tata has given to them how to use them in the best way, then such people accumulate a lot of good and this is why such a person is actually worth envy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told that to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said that, that there's two people who are worth envy, and one of them is a man to whom Allah has given wisdom. So he acts in accordance with it, and he teaches it to others, because such a person accumulates much good. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us wisdom, and whatever you

00:43:40--> 00:44:29

spend of expenditures, or make a vows, Indeed, Allah knows of it. And for the wrongdoers, there are no helpers. What does this ayah show us that Allah knows about what we spend on our personal needs, on our desires, on charity, on entertainment, on his religion, for his pleasure, he knows where our money goes, what our spending habits are, what our spending pattern is, and this is something that should make us reflect that my way of spending is is something that Allah subhanaw taala would like, and Allah subhanaw taala knows the intention behind why we spend and also he knows the amount that we give for in the law, Hajar alemu wamalwa law, aluminium and Ansari and for the wrongdoers, there

00:44:29--> 00:44:59

are no helpers. So this verse also shows us that those who spend who given a lost cause then they're the ones who receive Allah's help, because the wrongdoers the stingy or those who do not spend on those in need, who do not give Zakat or who are even stingy with their own families. Such wrongdoers do not have any helpers, but those who spend in good causes, then Allah subhanaw taala is their helper and this shows us that when we face any

00:45:00--> 00:45:46

hurdle in any matter? How is it that we should solve that? We should solve that with sadaqa with charity than the loss Panthera tells us in tribute to sankaty for nerima. He, if you disclose your charitable expenditures, they're good. Meaning sometimes spending publicly is actually very good. Letting your charity be known to others is good. Why? Because that encourages other people to spend. But if you conceal them, and give them to the poor, it is better for you, not just for the dignity of the poor, but also for your intention and he will remove from you some of your misdeeds thereby. So the person who fears their sins their misdeeds, then what should they do? They should begin

00:45:46--> 00:46:33

spending in the way of Allah because then their sins will be erased, the fire of their sins will be extinguished, and their circumstances will improve. And Allah with what you do is fully acquainted. We learn in the heydays, that secret charity is something that calms the anger of the Lord. So when we fear the wrong that we have done, we are afraid that Allah may be upset with us, then what is it that we should do? Give sadaqa especially give sadaqa privately, lay sorry, Laika, who their home, not upon you is responsibility for their guidance, but Allah guides whom He wills, and whatever good you believe or spend, is for yourselves. Apparently, when you're spending, it seems as though you

00:46:33--> 00:47:15

are giving it to someone else. But in reality, it is going in your own record of deeds, and you do not spend except seeking the face of Allah walmartone futuna, Elizabeth de la awaji Hilah. This should be our ultimate goal, the reason why we spend that we seek the face of Allah, the thing is, that between us and our Lord is a wall of our sins, our own sins become a barrier. So when we give sadaqa, this wall breaks down. And this will enable us to see Allah directly on the Day of Judgment, and to be with him.

00:47:16--> 00:48:00

And whatever you spend of good, it will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged, you will get it back. Again, when you give to others, it seems as though you are losing, you're losing your money. But that is not the case. When you give in the way of Allah, you're actually your money is actually being secured. Why is it that we take our money to the bank? Why do we keep it there, in order that it may be safe, even though we know that it's not sitting in a box in the bank, know the bank is using it, but we trust the bank to use our money. And then when we need it, we have that confidence that we can always get it from there. So the fact is that our money is safer with Allah,

00:48:00--> 00:48:49

it is actually increasing with Allah. But it is important that we have in house we have sincerity, when we spend for the sake of Allah. In our heads we learn that Allah does not accept any deed, except that which is purely for him and seeking his face. And we learn that Allah subhanaw taala will be pleased with those who gave, you know, had these we learn that whoever spends in order to seek the face of Allah, why does he spend to see Allah and he ends on that meaning this is how his life ends, then he will enter Jenna. So when you give, give leverage Hilah. Now who is it that we should spend on Allah subhanaw taala tells us charity is especially for the poor, who have been

00:48:49--> 00:49:27

restricted for the cause of Allah, unable to move about in the land, meaning night and they they're busy with the religion of Allah, learning it, defending it being in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and these were the most horrible suffer people who had migrated to Medina, in order to be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they did not have their homes or their families in Medina, they did not have any source of income and their entire time would be spent in the service of Islam. Allah says an ignorant person would think them self sufficient because of their restraint, but you will know them by their characteristic sign. They do not ask

00:49:27--> 00:49:59

people persistently and whatever you spend of good Indeed Allah is Knowing of it. So give to those who serve the deen of Allah. Especially. You see, when there is a poor person, right when there's a poor person, then you when you when you give them something, there's no expectation of a return. When you give a gift to a wealthy person, then you know that it will be reciprocated, you will get something back from them. But here the fukumura are mentioned the poor

00:50:00--> 00:50:43

are mentioned because when you will give them you know that you will not get any return from them. And this is in fact pure for you. And this is also better for the religion of Allah. Because this will not cause people to beg. So give before someone comes begging to you, when you know that, that someone has a need fulfill that and let the you know you don't feel cornered. Um, well, a humble lady, we're gonna have those who spent their wealth in the way of Allah, when, by night and by day, how do this how is it that they spend secretly and publicly, so to act upon this idea, give some charity in the nighttime, especially in the month of Ramadan, in the middle of European when you

00:50:43--> 00:51:29

take a break, don't just sit there on your phone, scrolling through your Instagram feed, also make a donation in the night so that you are of those who follow this idea. They will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve? So we see in this idea that sadaqa is actually a cure for what for fear and grief. On the day of judgment, when people will be in fear. Those who give charity will be safe. When people will be sad. Those who give charity will be secure, they will have no worries. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that little mini yomo pmet sadakazu the shade of the believer on the Day of Judgment is

00:51:29--> 00:51:30

his charity.

00:51:31--> 00:52:20

So these verses were about those who give those who spend on others. Now the following verses are about those who are greedy, who are always concerned about taking even from those who are poor, and lead in a Karuna Riba, those who consume interest interest Riba such people, they cannot stand on the Day of Resurrection, except as one stands, who is being beaten by shaitan into insanity. Why? Because look at how insane they are, they give a loan to someone, and in return, they take back more than what they gave, they exploited the poor, they take advantage of the need of the poor. That is because they say trade is just like interest. They rationalize it, but Allah has permitted trade and

00:52:20--> 00:53:12

has forbidden interest, so they cannot be the same. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what his past and his affair rests with Allah, but whoever returns to it, those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide there in eternally returning to interest going back to taking interest. This is a huge crime. You see, giving and taking interest, both are wrong, both are sinful. In fact, interest has been has been described as one of the unforgivable sins allottee lotto farm. In a Hadees we learned that he who eats interest will be resurrected on the day of judgment as an insane person beaten to insanity, like how a person is when they're possessed by a

00:53:12--> 00:53:22

jinn. Because the greed for wealth has made them crazy. And just like that, on the day of judgment, they will stand like a crazy person, like an insane person.

00:53:24--> 00:54:06

And remember that every person who is associated with interest is cursed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cursed the acceptor of Riba, the one who takes the Riba and it's bear akeelah. Reba, we're Moo killer, who the one who feeds rebar to others. Our problem is that based on this idea, we say all eating interest is wrong. Giving interest is not wrong. What did the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam say? He cursed the people. He cursed the people who give Riba How can we be settled with that? How can we be okay with that? The person who records it, the two witnesses, and he said they're all equal.

00:54:08--> 00:54:55

In another Hadees, we learn about severe punishment that was being given to the people who consumed interest and this punishment was shown to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the fact is that the Riba is really not worth it. It is really not worth it. It is a sin for which is punishment in this world. And in the next life, young hakala who Reba where you'll be sort of caught, Allah destroys interest, and he gives increase to charities, Allah destroys interest, meaning he orders that it'd be abolished, that it'd be erased. Even our boss said that Allah does not accept the charity, the striving, the hedge, or the seller, of the one who deals with interest, meaning any

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

good deed that they do, they're not accepted. On the other hand, Allah gives him

00:55:00--> 00:55:47

priests for charities, meaning he orders the charity must be given an even our best set about this, that Allah rewards those who give charity in this world and he blesses their wealth and in the hereafter also, he will reward them multiply times and Allah does not like every sinning disbeliever gafford in a theme, so if a person deals with interest, then they will be deprived of Allah's love. Because Willa hula your hibou Allah does not like such people who is Kufa. Kufa is an extreme denier, meaning the person who denies the seriousness of interest, the crime of interest, a theme sinful, meaning he consumes interest, and hence he commits sin. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:55:47--> 00:56:32

sallam said that no one increases their wealth with interest, except that their outcome will be shortage of wealth, meaning they won't actually increase in their wealth. But because of the interest, their wealth will actually reduce. Over time, they will have less and less because young hakala who Riba there can be no blessing in the wealth that is stained with interest. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the one who earns unlawful wealth, and then frees a slave with it, or gives to the relatives from it, then this will be a source of punishment for him, meaning instead of getting reward, he's actually going to earn more sin for using that haram that unlawful money. So

00:56:32--> 00:57:21

stay away from it, it is not worth it, make the intention to leave it. Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and gives a cat they will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. Will you who have believed fear Allah, Fear Allah, and give up what remains due to you of interest? If you should be believers, if you have a man, then leave Riba and if you do not, then be informed of a war against you from Allah and His messenger. If you don't want to leave river, then come and fight Allah Come and fight his messenger stuff, it'll law. But if you repent, you may have your principle. Thus you do no wrong,

00:57:21--> 00:58:10

nor are you wronged. And if someone meaning someone who has taken a loan from you is in hardship, then let there be postponement until a time of ease, meaning don't charge them interest now, but if you give the loan as charity, meaning you pardon it completely, then this is better for you. If you only knew what the Coolio mental Gerona, fee Illallah, and fear a Day when you will be returned to Allah. Remember, you're not staying in this world forever, then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will not be treated unjustly. So do not put your at risk for the temporary gains of this life. So total Baqarah has the greatest verse in it, I could see and it also has the

00:58:10--> 00:58:58

longest verse of the Quran in it which is Ayah to Dane, or you who have believed when you contract a debt for a specified term, then write it down and let a scribe write it between you injustice, you see, even when you lend something to a relative recorded, because a lot of conflict stems from money mismanagement. So to save yourself from doubt, and to save other people from doubt, to have clarity, write down such transactions. And let escribe righted between you and justice. Let no scribe refuse to write, as Allah has taught him. So let him write, and let the one who has the obligation dictate meaning the one who's taking the loan should be the one to dictate to the scribe, and let him fear

00:58:58--> 00:59:42

Allah, his Lord, and not leave anything out of it. But if the one who has the obligation is of limited understanding, or weak or unable to dictate himself, then let his guardian dictate injustice, and bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men available than a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses. Why so that if one of the women ORS, than the other can remind her, meaning the other will only assist her when there is a need, and let not the witnesses refuse when they're called upon and do not be too weary to write it, whether it is small or large for its specified term that is more just in the sight of Allah and

00:59:42--> 00:59:59

stronger as evidence and more likely to prevent a doubt between you except when it is an immediate transaction, which you conduct among yourselves, meaning a transaction that you conclude immediately, there is no need to write that. But when there is a delayed payment, when there is borrowing when there is lending.

01:00:00--> 01:00:44

Then make sure you record that. For then there is no blame upon you if you do not write it and take witnesses when you conclude a contract for official business transactions or bigger contracts, make sure that there are witnesses along with documentation. Let no scribe be harmed, or any witnesses for if you do, indeed, it is grave disobedience in you, and fear Allah, and Allah teaches you, and Allah is Knowing of all things. And if you are on a journey, and cannot find a scribe, then a security deposit should be taken as collateral. And if one of you interests another than let him who is interested, discharged his trust faithfully, and let him fear Allah His Lord, and do not conceal

01:00:44--> 01:01:34

testimony, for whoever conceals it, His heart is indeed sinful. And this shows us that even the heart can commit sin, there are Sins of the heart, and there are Sins of the tongue and their sins of the hands, and Allah is Knowing of what you do. And now the final concluding verses of Surah Baqarah Lila Hema is somehow worth a woman feel to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is in the earth, whether you show what is within yourselves or conceal it, Allah will bring you to account for it, then he will forgive whom He wills and punish whom He wills, and Allah is over all things competent. Even Abbas rodilla horna reported that when this verse was revealed, that

01:01:34--> 01:02:25

whether you disclose what is in yourselves or you, or you conceal it, then Allah will call you to account for it. They're entered in the minds of the companions, a fear that had never entered their minds and hearts before meaning, the companions became very afraid that how can we have control over what is in our hearts? If we are held accountable for what is in the heart, then we will be doomed. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them say, Samir, now we're Aparna was alumna that we have heard, and we have obeyed and we have submitted ourselves. So even our boss said, on this, Allah filled their hearts with Eamon because when a person here is a command of Allah, whether it is

01:02:25--> 01:03:11

related to charity, or interest or anything else, and he says in his heart, Samir, now well, Tara now was the alumna, that Oh Allah, now I have come to know of this, and I have made the intention, I will obey you, I submit to you, I will not resist, I will do this than Allah will fill the heart of such a person with a man. And so what happened? Then Allah subhanaw taala revealed the next two verses, which are the last two verses of Surah Baqarah. And remember, these two verses, like Sultan Fatiha are from a treasure trove beneath the throne of Allah. And a person does not recite any any word of these verses, except that they're benefited because of them. And this is why the Prophet

01:03:11--> 01:03:55

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam urged us to recite them. He said it crop recite a attainment our historical Baccarat recite the last two verses of Surah Al Baqarah. These two verses are so powerful that if a person recites them in the night, then Kavita, who they will suffice him, meaning they will be enough for his protection, forgiveness, and some have said that they will also be enough for his reward for night prayer and they will dispel his fears, they will dispel his stress, his worries, his anxieties, and the Prophet sallallahu. Earlier Selim also said that these two verses are not recited in a house for three nights, except that shaitan will not be able to come close to

01:03:55--> 01:04:10

it. So fortify yourself, fortify your home and the people within your home by reciting these verses every night. Make it a point to memorize them and recite them regularly. What are these verses?

01:04:11--> 01:04:56

Another solo Bhima owns de la la Hema Robbie, he will make me known, the messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and so have the believers Subhana Allah, Allah accepts their Amen. The man of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the man of the companions, this man is approved, what is it that they believed in? All of them, all of them have believed in Allah and His angels, as we learned to the beginning of cervical bacara and larina umina believe they believe in the unseen and they also believe in his books and his messengers as we learn to the beginning of sorbitol belcarra when livina umina Bhima on Zilla Lake warmer on xeomin kabylake. They believe in

01:04:56--> 01:04:59

all of Revelation. They say we make note

01:05:00--> 01:05:51

distinction between any of his messengers. So we see that this idea covers all of the pillars of Eman, the belief in Allah, the belief in his angels in his books in his messengers, but you might say, what about belief in Divine Decree? That is not mentioned over here. Why? Because that is actually a result of believing in all of this. And it is covered in the words we'll call loose Sameera. Now we're Alterna and they say, we hear and we obey, you see, believing in Divine Decree is to accept the decrees of Allah, the decisions of Allah, both his religious commands, and his decrees related to our lives, that whatever is happening, whatever is coming my way, my circumstances. All

01:05:51--> 01:06:39

of this is by Allah's decree. So I accept it, and I will do whatever my Lord has commanded me to do. But then you realize how imperfect you are. So the roof ronica burner, we seek your forgiveness Our Lord, what he lay, can mislead. And to you is the final destination. There's no escape from you, except to you. So we see over here, that before asking for forgiveness is a summer and thora to listen and to obey, then ask forgiveness. So this shows us that whenever we want to seek forgiveness than before that we should try to do something good. We should try to perform some act of obedience. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever performs will do as I have and remember

01:06:39--> 01:07:26

making will do is an act of worship. It's an act of obedience, and then he prays to dakara without letting his thoughts wander, then all of his previous sins will be forgiven. So when you want to seek forgiveness proceeded with some act of obedience. Sometimes the guilt of sins was heavy in the heart. You think about all the things you have done wrong in your past, because of your ignorance and your foolishness and you wonder, how do I fix that? This is how you fix that. You do something good, you pray tilaka you beg Allah for forgiveness, keep doing good. Keep seeking forgiveness. Allah says later you can live Allahu nevsun illa was Aha. Allah does not charge a soul except with

01:07:26--> 01:08:19

that within its capacity lahoma Casa but while a hammock does, but it will have the consequence of what good It has gained, and it will bear the consequence of what evil it has earned. Meaning a person is responsible for the choices that they make, because you reap what you sow. This is shows us that every command of Allah, whether it is of the Calif komiya meaning related to our worldly matters, or the Khalif schutter iya religious obligations, every decree of Allah is such that it is doable for us. Because the fact is that there is no one who knows us better than Allah subhanaw taala so if he decides something for our lives, or if he commands us to do something, that it can't,

01:08:19--> 01:08:43

then it cannot be beyond our ability. It cannot be beyond our strength. But still, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for ease, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for help because La hawla wala quwata illa Billah there is no power, no strength, except with Allah. So we asked him, we prayed to him robina led to a hidden in nesina. O

01:08:45--> 01:09:36

our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or aired. If we have made a mistake, we will obey you. But we also know that there will be times when we will forget and we will make mistakes on account of our ignorance, because we are hooked our own. We are those who error or burner. What are tamela Alena is Soren karma Hamilton who are Latina, mencoba Lena, our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden, what kind of burden obligations or restrictions like that which you laid upon those before us? Meaning do not give us a burden that is difficult, like the one that was imposed on the people before us, meaning make our religion and your decrees easy for us. Little

01:09:36--> 01:09:59

burner, while to hamdulillah mulato catalana be our Lord and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear meaning the trials of life or commands and religion or the impositions any make them easy for us. work for an end pardon us erase and wipe our shortcomings

01:10:00--> 01:10:58

erase our neglect welfare learner and forgive us conceal our errors while to him and have mercy upon us. Do not humiliate us on the Day of Judgment until mowlana. You are our protector, you are all able to protect and help us and we only have you to turn to unter mowlana from sadhana Allah Carmel Catherine. So you give us victory over the disbelieving people, meaning your Allah help us against our internal hurdles, and the external hurdles. So these verses show us that our ability is limited, that we are truly weak. And this is why we ask Allah to give us what we can bear. Remember, these are ours are actually accepted to us. Because every time that the Sahaba recited one of these, we

01:10:58--> 01:11:42

learned in Hades that Allah subhanaw taala responded by the file to cut file to meaning Done, done. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala has made this religion easy as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, this really this religion is an Hanif iya a somehow the easy and gentle one. And we see this, that Islam is not such that it pushes us to the point of breaking in the name of grit, or in the name of resilience or in the name of piety. Know the nature of Islamic law is such that when things become unbearably hard for people, the law provides them concessions, it lightens the burden from them, we see that if a person just intends to do something wrong, no sin is written for them,

01:11:42--> 01:12:30

until they actually commit the sin. If a person forgets, or is course to do something wrong, again, they're not guilty of sin. If a person does something wrong out of ignorance, and then they repent later, Allah subhanaw taala pardons them. And if a person is going through reusser, through difficulty, Allah also gives them usage. He also gives them ease. So these verses bring us hope. They bring us courage, we express our need of Allah in these verses, we express our dependency on Allah subhanaw taala in these verses, and remember, these verses were gifted to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam at the mirror Raj, so make the recitation a part of your routine, your

01:12:30--> 01:12:40

nightly routine, so that you also get hope and courage, and you also connect with your Lord. And you also get the ease that Allah subhanaw taala has promised.

01:12:41--> 01:13:30

So not earlier, Enron, sort of earlier, Enron, just like pseudo tillbaka has a lot of virtue. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, learn the Quran, for it will come as an intercessor on the Day of Judgment, learn pseudoscalar, Baccarat, and earlier imraan. And he said, learn these two lights, for they will come on the Day of Judgment, as if there were two clouds, or two shades or two flocks of birds in rows, pleading for those who recite them. So we see that the knowledge the recitation of the sutras is something that will be a means of protection for a person on the Day of Judgment Bismillahirrahmanirrahim In the name of Allah, be Entirely Merciful, be Especially

01:13:30--> 01:14:19

Merciful, lF learn meme, Allah hula ilaha illa, who will hi Europa Yun, Allah, there is no deity except Him, the EverLiving, the Sustainer of existence, he has sent down upon you or prophet, the book in truth, confirming what was before it. And he revealed the total and the Injeel. Before as guidance for the people. So remember, the purpose of the book of Allah is to guide people. And he revealed the furqan the criterion, Indeed, those who disbelieve in the verses of Allah will have a severe punishment. And Allah is Exalted in Might, the owner of retribution. Remember, Allah did not reveal his books so that they're rejected by people, or that they're ignored by people, that people

01:14:19--> 01:15:00

put them away and pretend as if they don't exist. If a person rejects the book of Allah, then there will be retribution from Allah also, indeed, from Allah, nothing is hidden in the earth nor in the heavens, it is he who forms you in the wombs, however he wills so however you are however someone is, that is what Allah subhanaw taala wanted. So Love the Way Allah subhanaw taala has created you and do not criticize your physical form or the physical form of another. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might the wise, it is he who has sent down to you Oh Prophet, the

01:15:00--> 01:15:41

Book in it are verses that are more commands that are precise, meaning they're clear in their meaning and they contain clear commands. And these verses they are the foundation of the book, meaning the majority of the Quran is like that. And such verses serve as the foundation for understanding the rest of the Quran. And then there are other verses which are Muta, shabby hats, others that are unspecific, meaning verses whose meaning we cannot specify, because Allah and His Messenger have not done so. For example, underflow mean, what does it mean we do not know. So we should not obsess over these verses, or these things that are mentioned in the Quran, nor argue and

01:15:41--> 01:16:27

debate over them. But as for those people in whose hearts is deviation from truth, they will follow that of which is unspecific, meaning they obsess over them as if the entire religion is based upon them as if the only thing that the Quran contains are these unspecific verses. Why do they do that? seeking discord and seeking an interpretation, meaning that is suitable to them, and no one knows its true interpretation except Allah. But those Fermin knowledge say, we believe in it, all of it is from our Lord, and no one will be reminded except those of understanding who are they? What is their prayer, Robin Allah to zylka lubaina BARDA, it had atana who say Our Lord, let not our hearts

Indeed, you were the restore the liberal restore of gifts. So shower your gifts upon us, you are the giver. So gift us with guidance and steadfastness upon guidance, that we neither leave this path, nor Forget about it. Remember, that the perseverance of the heart, which is mentioned over here and this is, this is something very, very important, because if the heart is in the right place, if the heart is guided, then there is Amen. And then a person's actions are also guided. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

01:17:13--> 01:17:44

sallam said, a person's faith cannot be correct, until his heart is correct, and his heart cannot be correct until his tongue is correct. The heart is the most important part of your being. It is the heart where the COA is a Dakota hoonah it is in the heart where decisions are made. This is why ask Allah to guide the heart Allahumma Nickleby was a deadly Sani was slow Sahih Mata Colby, that Oh Allah,

The way you clean a white cloth from stains. And remember that seeking forgiveness is something that cleans the heart. The Prophet sallallahu

01:18:41--> 01:18:52

alayhi wa sallam said there is at times some sort of shade like a cover, you know some kind of shade upon my heart and I seek forgiveness from Allah 100 times a day.

01:18:53--> 01:19:41

So seek forgiveness and clean the heart. pray to Allah to protect you from the evil of your own hearts. Woman shall be alone many out to become an surely summary woman surely boss sorry woman shall release any woman surely call me Oh Allah protect me from the evil of my heart.

01:20:00--> 01:20:21

The love and unhealthy attachment that they have developed, then pray for them also. Allahu mushfiqur that Oh Allah heal his heart, wash v Sakuma, and cure his heal and cure his illness Allahumma de kalba the roller guide his heart, Allahu Masha, Allah, Allah cure his heart,

01:20:22--> 01:21:08

our Lord, surely you will gather the people for a day about which there is no doubt, Indeed, Allah does not fail in his promise. Indeed, those who disbelieve never will their wealth, or their children, avail them against Allah at all. And it is they who are fuel for the fire, there's is like the custom of the people of fit our own, and those before them. An example is given from history. They denied our signs. So Allah sees done for their sins, and Allah is severe in penalty. So we should fear Allah, lest we are caught because of our sins. Say to those who disbelieve you will be overcome. The disbelievers who came to bother to fight the Prophet sallallahu earlier said them are

01:21:08--> 01:21:51

being warned over here that just as you were defeated, and brother, in no time you will be complete, you will be completely defeated and gathered together to hell, and wretched is the resting place. Already there has been for us sign in the two armies which meant one fighting in the cause of Allah and another of disbelievers. At brother, they saw them to be twice their own number by their eyesight. So at better what happened is that each side viewed the other as twice their own number. So the Muslims actually saw the McKinsey's only 600 or so. And this uplifted them, and the mccanns saw the Muslims as 2000 and this frightened them, but Allah supports with his victory, whom He wills

01:21:51--> 01:22:40

indeed, and that is a lesson for those of vision. Xena, Lena, see her Boucher, her word beautified for people is the love of that which they desire, meaning these desirable things are made beloved to people, what are these desirable things of women and sons heaped up sums of gold and silver, fine branded horses, and cattle untilled land, that is the enjoyment of worldly life, a source of some enjoyment, just right now, but Allah has with him the best return. So this love, which is in the hearts of people is there, but it is actually a test. Allah subhanaw taala did not create our hearts void of any feeling void of any love, not this love and attraction, this attraction for pleasure, it

01:22:40--> 01:23:25

will be there. But it is a test that are you going to get lost in it? Or are you going to prefer Allah? Are you going to just enjoy these things? Or are you going to use them in pursuing the pleasure of Allah? Say, shall I inform you of something better than that? All owner B will come behind him in Valley con, these things are great. and enjoying them liking them is not something bad. But what is problematic is that a person thinks that they're everything. And so he makes them his ultimate goal. And he gets immersed in enjoying them and does not look forward to what is better. And what is that what Allah has saved for the hereafter? Remember, to get to the higher

01:23:25--> 01:24:14

levels of Jenna, some desires need to be curbed. Some desires need to be disciplined. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, what I fear for my nation has three things and of them is desire that is followed. And he also said, the sweetness of this world can be bitterness in the hereafter. And the bitterness of this world can actually be sweetness in the hereafter. So remember, this world is not everything, there is something much better. And what is that? For those who fear Allah will be gardens, gardens that are eternal in the presence of their Lord, beneath which rivers flow were in they will abide eternally, and purified spouses and approval from Allah. So no one will be single

01:24:14--> 01:24:57

in Jannah. And Allah is seeing of his servants. Who are they, those who say, Our Lord, indeed we have believed, so forgive us our sins, and protect us from the punishment of the Fire. Who are these fortunate people of flubbing, those who are patient, those who are true, the obedient those who spend in the way of Allah and those who seek forgiveness before dawn, amazing. They get up before budget and seek forgiveness from Allah. So we should compare ourselves to the characteristics that are mentioned over here that do I possess them. What's the first one a subsidy, those who are patient, Emile Khayyam said there are three forms of patients, one over commands, so a person

01:24:57--> 01:25:00

fulfills them second, over

01:25:00--> 01:25:49

ambitions so a person avoids them. Third over decrees. So a person does not get upset because of them. Then we saw the pain, those who are truthful. But that said, there are those who are true in their intentions, in their actions in their hearts also, and their tongues, they're upright, who are good, in private, and in public, this is truthfulness. This is honesty, that a person is not two faced, well, carnitine, those who are devoutly obedient, that whatever Allah commands them with, they do it how, with humility, and consistency, one 115 and those who spend meaning they spend in the ways that Allah subhanaw taala has commanded them on relatives on those in need in the way of

01:25:49--> 01:26:33

Allah will almost all fit in a bill as hell. And they seek forgiveness at the time of dawn, because they realize there since and this shows us the importance of seeking forgiveness before dawn, this time is very important. This is the time when Allah descends to the lowest heaven, and he asks, who was there who will call upon me? So I will answer him who was there who will ask me so I will give him who was there who will seek forgiveness from me, so I will forgive him. And this continues until fudger. So seek forgiveness at that time, Allah who witnesses that there is no day to accept him, and so do the angels and those have knowledge that he is maintaining creation in justice, there is

01:26:33--> 01:27:18

no data except Him, the Exalted in Might the wise, indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ, except after knowledge had come to them. Why, out of jealous animosity between themselves and whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah than, Indeed, Allah is swift in taking account. So if they argue with you say, I have submitted myself to Allah in Islam, and so have those who follow me. And you say, to those who were given the Scripture, and to the unlearned, have you submitted yourselves, and if they submit in Islam, then they're rightly guided, but if they turn away, then upon you is only the duty of

01:27:18--> 01:28:01

notification. And Allah is seeing of his servants, those who disbelieve in the signs of Allah, and kill the profits without right and kill those who order justice from among the people give them tidings of a painful punishment. They are the ones whose deeds have become worthless in this world and in the hereafter. And for them, there will be no helpers. Do you not consider those who are given a portion of the Scripture, they're invited to the scripture of Allah, that it should arbitrate between them, then a party of them turns away, and they're refusing? Meaning they don't want to see what the book of Allah says? They don't want to know. They're, they're wrong. This

01:28:01--> 01:28:51

behavior is a result of what reason? This is because they say, never will defy or touch us, except for a few number days. And because they were diluted in their religion by what they were inventing. So how will it be when we assemble them for a day about which there is no doubt and each soul will be compensated in full for what it earned and they will not be wronged? Gunilla? Houma, Malakal, mulk say, oh, Allah, owner of sovereignty, tell Malcolm and Tasha, you give sovereignty to whom you will. So if someone has any power, any sovereignty, any level of ownership, it is Allah's favor upon them within zero moral commitment, the Shah, and you take sovereignty away from whom you will, what

01:28:51--> 01:29:42

to the lumen the Shah, and you What do they lumen Tushar? What do resume and Tasha, what is the lumen Tasha, you honor whom you will, and you humble whom you will, in your hand is all good, be ethical, higher, indeed you are over all things competent. So remember, good is from Allah. Hide is from Allah. So any ability or opportunity to do good that a person has, has actually been given to them by Allah subhanaw taala. So we should ask Allah to use us in good work to give us more and more opportunities of good work. You cause the night to enter the day and you cause the day to enter the night, such a massive change. So consistently, Allah subhanaw taala causes to happen, and you bring

01:29:42--> 01:29:50

the living out of the dead, and you bring the dead out of the living, and you'll give provision to whom you will without account.

01:29:51--> 01:29:59

Let not believers take disbelievers as allies, rather than the believers. And whoever of you does that has nothing with Allah

01:30:00--> 01:30:53

Except when taking precaution against them in prudence, and Allah warns you of himself and to Allah is the final destination. Say, whether you conceal what is in your chests or you reveal it, Allah knows about it. And he knows that which is in the heavens, and that which is on the earth. And Allah is over all things competent, the day, the day of judgment, that day is not far, when every soul will find what it has done of good present before it, and what it has done of evil, it will wish that between itself and that evil was a great distance. Imagine when the records will be laid open, and our deeds will be on display. A person will be so embarrassed, he will wish to be far away from

01:30:53--> 01:31:46

his sins from his deeds, you will wish for his sins to be removed from him. But the time to remove them is now where you have Vito qumola, who nafsa and Allah warns you of himself and Allah is often very bad. He is kind to his servants Subhan Allah, Fear Allah, and also have hope in his kindness. Because remember, a man is supposed to be between fear and hope. Any extreme is unhealthy, so remain in the middle. So this is a warning and who fear is Allah? Who is it that develops the fear of Allah in the mail shala him and everybody here Allah, Allah tells us that it is those who have knowledge among his servants who actually fear him. So the more a person knows Allah, the more they fear

01:31:46--> 01:32:34

Allah, man kana biLlahi Rnm can Allah hoo hoo have and who is true in their claim of loving Allah? Allah tells us pull in contempt to Hebron Allah say, if you should love Allah for to be Rooney, then follow me what will happen you become Allah, then Allah who love you and forgive you your sins, what you fear will be removed from you. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Amazing, following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is actually a proof of a person's love for Allah. Everyone claims to love Allah. But the real proof of that is in following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and if a person does not do that, then their claim of loving Allah is actually false. Why

01:32:34--> 01:33:22

follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because he did whatever Allah commanded him. He did what Allah subhanaw taala loves. There is nothing that is beloved to Allah. There is nothing that Allah loves his servants to do, except that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did that he encouraged that he taught that. So when we will follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we will automatically be doing things that Allah subhanaw taala loves. And remember, you show love to someone by doing what they like, not what you like. Loving Allah means doing things that Allah loves, not what your heart desires. And this love that we have for Allah is not just about singing

01:33:22--> 01:34:03

songs in praise, or kissing the Quran, or kissing a pendant that has God's name on it. No, this love is to be expressed through action through obedience. We see that once some people came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Bahrain. And when the Prophet sallallahu Asana made will do, they ran to catch the will the water that fell from him. So whatever they managed to catch, they drank it and whatever they couldn't catch and it fell on the ground. They wet their hands with it, and wipe their hands over their faces and their heads and their chests. So the Prophet sallallahu already sent them ask them, What made you do this? They said, Love for you, that perhaps Allah will

01:34:03--> 01:34:15

love us or messenger of Allah, meaning we did this out of love for you, because we hope that one we will love you, Allah will love us. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If you truly love Allah,

01:34:16--> 01:34:59

if you truly love that Allah and His Messenger should love you. Then guard three qualities do three things. He told them about three things that they could do action points, and what are they sled school holidays, be true, truthful in speech. Secondly, adapt will Amana fulfill your trusts and thirdly person would you be a good neighbor because hurting the neighbor erases good deeds as the sun erases snow? Cool aqui Allah wa rasuluh say, obey Allah and the messenger. But if they turn away for a new Allah, Allah you hibel Catherine, then Indeed Allah does not like the disbelievers. Why would he like those who turn away from his

01:35:00--> 01:35:36

Beloved. So remember, the love of Allah necessitates obeying Allah, it means we must obey Allah and we must obey the messenger of Allah. So those who do not obey, obey the messenger, that Allah does not like them. So we need to check how is it that we respond to the commands of Allah and to the commands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Indeed, Allah chose Adam and Noah, and the family of Ibrahim and the family of Emraan. Over the worlds we we now learn about some people whom Allah subhanaw taala loves

01:35:37--> 01:36:02

the return by Wilhelm embezzled, they were descendants, some of them from others. And Allah is hearing and knowing who were the earlier man, why were they chosen? What caused them to be chosen? Allah says in quality monitor imraan mentioned when the wife of Iran said that, my Lord, indeed I have pledged to you what is in my womb, she was also chosen.

01:36:03--> 01:36:50

She said, I pledged to you what is in my womb, meaning my child consecrated for your service, small Helen photocurable Mini so accept this for me. Indeed, you are the hearing the knowing. You see, there are many types of people. There are some people whom Allah subhanaw taala has chosen for both the deen and the dunya. So he gives them of this world and he also blesses them with his religion. They have both. They excel in both. And then there are some people who only have Deen like the US herbal sofa, right, the unsought, they were farmers, they had money, they had property, the mahadji rune also they were traders, and the US herbal sofa, they were dedicated to the deen completely. And

01:36:50--> 01:37:40

this has always been the case. There are some people who have to make that sacrifice. They have to give up their worldly pursuits, to pursue the religion of Allah. And this is what this woman wanted for her child. She wanted her child to be dedicated for worship exclusively, nothing else. So she said, This child of mine will be more Hello, meaning freed from any obligation to me, free from any worldly occupation completely dedicated to the worship of Allah to the service of his religion. So what happened for the Mahabharata, but when she delivered her, she said, My Lord, I have delivered a female, she thought her child would be a boy, because it was boys at that time who did such work? So

01:37:40--> 01:38:30

look at her, she's talking to Allah. She says, Allah, she said, Robbie, my lub in the water to her own sir, she's talking to Allah. Remember that the best solution to our problems is in talking to Allah, befriend Allah, and your life will become easy. Talk to Allah. You see, we want to talk to people, but people are not always available. Sometimes they even charge us, right? You go for therapy, and you have to pay a whole lot of money. And of course, if you need therapy, you must go. This is not anything against that. But my point is that people are not always available or accessible. Right? But when you talk to Allah, Allah subhanaw taala has always they're always

01:38:30--> 01:39:17

accessible. You send a message to a person, they haven't even read your message yet, or better yet, they leave you on read, and it is so hurtful. So talk to Allah, and actually verbalize your feelings before Allah. Don't just keep them in your heart, like this lady did. She said rabine will bar to her own sir. Allah says Allah who RLM will be Mahabharat and Allah who was most knowing of what she delivered, sometimes we don't make Dora we don't talk to Allah because we think Allah already knows. Yes, he knows. But when you talk to Allah, that is when you will feel closer to him. That is when you will, unburden yourself, you will feel relieved. Remember, a relationship is not just about

01:39:17--> 01:39:28

knowing what someone is going through. It is with communication. So communicate with your Lord, talk to Allah, pour your heart out before him cry.

01:39:30--> 01:39:59

And the male is not like the female. Well, he said the Caracal onza meaning they're not identical. Yes, there are similarities, but there are also fundamental differences. And each has their own unique set of traits, strengths, ways in which Allah subhanaw taala has chosen them. So at times, one can do what the other cannot. A woman can do what a man cannot. So you don't have to be someone else to do something. You have to

01:40:00--> 01:40:46

Be who you are, to do something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala she says, and I have named her magium and I seek refuge for her in you, and for her descendants from shaitan be expelled from the mercy of Allah. So the first thing she did is that she gave her child in the protection of Allah. What does Allah say, for the Kabbalah hora boo hobbico bulan Hassan so her Lord accepted her with good acceptance, Allah accepts the deeds which are done with sincerity. And he caused her to grow in a good manner. Remember, Allah subhanaw taala is the one who causes children to grow, he develops them, he nourishes them, he sustains them, he provides them parents only put in some efforts. Allah

01:40:46--> 01:41:28

subhanaw taala is the one who truly better Ha. So give your children in Allah's care. Make doors, that will Allah as you took care of yourself in Egypt, as you took care of Moosa in the house of our own, you protect my child, you guide my child. And Allah put her in the care of Zakat a year, who was a prophet of his time, and also the relative of Miriam, who could be a better Guardian, who could be a better teacher, a better mentor. So she stayed in the mosque in her madhab in her prayer chamber, devoted in worship and study. And because her father was not alive, profits or Korea would care for her. Allah says every times a Korea entered upon her in the prayer, every time a Korea

01:41:28--> 01:42:21

entered upon her in the prayer chamber, he found with her provision, he said, Oh, Miriam, from where is this coming to you? Where did you get this from? She said, it is from Allah. Indeed, Allah provides for whom He wills without any account who Malika daza curry yarrabah at that Zakaria called upon his Lord, my lord or be heavily Milla Dunker, the return to Yuba. Oh my Lord, grant me from yourself, I want from you. Because I know you have I know you can give and I know you were generous. So I want from you. I want a good offspring. Indeed. You are the hearer of supplication. You see, Zachary alehissalaam saw how a young woman was being blessed by Allah subhana wa tada and seeing her

01:42:21--> 01:43:08

blessings made him call upon Allah. Look at how his hope in Allah increased. So when you see someone with a blessing, and you like it, then ask Allah that He Allah, you gave it to them, I wanted to. So what happened? The angels called upon the angels called him while he was standing in prayer in the chamber. Indeed, Allah gives you good tidings of yahia Subhan. Allah, his daughter was accepted. Allah gives you good tidings of yahia, confirming a word from Allah, and who will be honorable, abstaining from women and a prophet from among the righteous. The criada has said, I've said, My Lord, how will I have a boy, when I have reached old age, and my wife is barren, amazing. He made

01:43:08--> 01:43:52

the Dora and now he himself is surprised. The angel said such is Allah. He does what He wills look at the earliest Salaam said, My Lord, make for me a sign. So I know for sure. He said, your sign is that you will not be able to speak to the people for three days except by gesture. And remember your Lord much and exalted with praise in the evening and in the morning, and this is how we should receive we should welcome the blessings of Allah when we hear the good news of Allah subhanaw taala his blessings. For example, a good proposal for marriage or news of pregnancy or acceptance into a program that you really wanted a job interview, whatever it is, you hear the good news, you read the

01:43:52--> 01:44:44

email, you get the notification, then immediately thank Allah immediately praise Allah, engage in Vicar engage in sb chaker. Give sadaqa turn to Allah with quality Mullah iica and mentioned when the angel said all Maryam Indeed, Allah has chosen you and purified you have chosen you above the women of the world's or money um, be devoutly obedient to your Lord because Allah has chosen you, you also become obedient to Allah and prostrate and bow with those who bow in prayer. So this shows us that when Allah has blessed you with something, then you must Humble yourself even more before Allah Valley come in amber Eloy binu Hey Lake, that is from the news of the unseen which we reveal to you

01:44:44--> 01:44:59

or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you are not with them when they cast their pens as to which of them should be responsible for medium nor were you with them when they disputed and mentioned when the angel said all Maryam Indeed Allah gives you good news of a word.

01:45:00--> 01:45:41

from him, whose name will be the mercy, or Isa the son of mme distinguished in this world and the Hereafter, and among those brought near to Allah Subhana Allah now that Miriam is an adult, look at how Allah subhanaw taala employs her for his Deen uses her for his Deen. Her mother wanted to dedicate her for Allah, she didn't know how that would actualize. So, make good intentions, and then fulfill your dreams, your promises to Allah subhanaw taala and see how Allah subhanaw taala will bless your efforts, you will bring the intention and the effort and Allah subhanaw taala will guide.

01:45:42--> 01:46:26

And also we see here that those who give are not deprived, whether it is your time that you give for the sake of Allah, your effort, your money, your career, whatever it is that you give to Allah for the sake of Allah, He will multiply it for you. Just try it. When the angel said, well Maryam, Indeed, Allah gives you good tidings of a word from him, meaning a child who will be born because of Allah's word can, now from a father, who's named will be the mercy Raisa the son of money, I'm distinguished in this world and the Hereafter, and among those brought near to Allah, He will speak to the people in the cradle, and in maturity, and will be of the righteous, she said, My Lord, how

01:46:26--> 01:47:10

will I have a child when no man has touched me, it was said it will happen, such as Allah, He creates what He wills. When he decrees a matter, he only says to it be, and it is, and this is why he started cinemas also described as calima t Minho, a word from him, meaning he was created out of the word of Allah subhanaw taala. And He will teach him writing and wisdom, and the Torah and the Gospel, or he will teach him the book and the Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel, and make him a messenger to the children of Israel, he will who will say, indeed, I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, a miracle, what miracle in that I designed for you from clay, that which is like the

01:47:10--> 01:47:55

form of a bird, then I breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah, and I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead by permission of Allah, and I inform you of what you eat, and what you store in your houses. Indeed, and that is a sign for you, if you are believers, and I have come confirming that what was before me of the total, and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you, and I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear Allah and obey me in the law, how to be one a book on fire. buddhu Indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him, Not Me, obey me, but worship, only Allah had a slit autumn was the theme. That

01:47:55--> 01:48:43

is the straight path. And this shows us that we can only be on the straight path when we worship only Allah, when our sacrifice, when the good that we do the Salah that we pray, the charity that we gave, all our life is dedicated for Allah subhanaw taala alone, that is very bad, and that is Serato must stop him. But when restarted a salon felt persistence and disbelief from them. He said, Who are my supporters for the cause of Allah, the Hawaii Yun, the disciples, they said, We are supporters for Allah, we will support you, even though the people deny you know, no onsala we have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims. So we see that they showed their utmost support. And this is

01:48:43--> 01:49:28

why they were called hawara Yun. They said, Our Lord, we have believed in what you revealed, and have followed the messenger. So register us among the witnesses to truth and the disbelievers planned but Allah planned in return. And Allah is the best of planners, meaning the people were not able to harm reciting his sin. Allah subhanaw taala saved him mentioned when Allah said Orisa Indeed, I will take you and raise you to myself, and purify you from those who disbelieve and make you and make those who follow you superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection, then to me is your return. And I will judge between you concerning that in which you used to differ.

01:49:28--> 01:49:59

And as for those who disbelieved. I will punish them with the severe punishment in this world and the hereafter and they will have no helpers. But as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, he will give them in full their rewards for you or fee him or Jura home and Allah does not like the wrongdoers. So this shows us that real reward, complete reward is actually in the hereafter. That is what we recite to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam of our verses and the precise and wise message

01:50:00--> 01:50:45

This is coming from Allah. Indeed, the example of Risa to Allah is like that of Adam. He created him from dust. Then he said to him Be and he was, the truth is from your Lord. So do not be among those who doubt, then whoever argues with you about it, after this knowledge has come to you, then say, Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves than supplicate earnestly together and invoke the curse of Allah upon the liars, meeting, when people do not accept the evidence, then this is supposed to be done in the head, Allah who will cost us will help. Indeed this is the true narration and there is no data except Allah. And indeed, Allah is the

01:50:45--> 01:51:31

Exalted in Might the wise, but if they turn away, then Indeed Allah is Knowing of the corrupters say, yeah, Al Kitab Diallo, Illa Kalimantan Sawa in Benin, our webinar calm, all people have the scripture come to a word that is equitable between us and you. And what is that? That we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with him alone our Buddha in the law? Well, I know shreeka he Shay, wilayah berguna Bergen or baba min Daniela and we will not take one another as Lords instead of Allah for intoa lo for coolish. hadoo be anomalously moon, but if they turn away, then say bear witness that we are Muslims, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent

01:51:31--> 01:52:10

this idea to the Roman king who was a Christian. So he used this idea when calling people to Islam. We also learn in a hadith in Sahih Muslim that even our boss for de la Horne, who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite this ayah in the second record of the Sunnah, prayers of budget. So we should also memorize this idea and recite it in the Sunnah prayers of budget. In the second record, all people have the Scripture, why do you argue about Ibrahim? While the Torah and the gene were not revealed until after him, then will you not reason? Here you are those who have argued about that of which you have some knowledge for why do you argue about that,

01:52:10--> 01:52:56

of which you have no knowledge? And Allah knows, well, you know, not Ibrahim was neither a Jew nor a Christian, because you see both the Jews and the Christians, they they claimed him that that we are His followers and you are not, who was he then he but he was one inclining to where truth, a Muslim, and he was not of the polytheists. Indeed, the most worthy of Ibrahim among the people are those who followed him, meaning those who submit to Allah, and this prophet, and those who believe in his message. And Allah is the ally of the believers, when luckily you will move meaning all believers, a faction of the People of the Scripture, wish they could mislead you, but they do not mislead except

01:52:56--> 01:53:38

themselves and they perceive it not remember, anyone who tries to harm another is in fact harming themselves, or People of the Scripture. Why do you disbelieve in the verses of Allah, while you witness to their truth? Or People of the Scripture? Why do you compete? Why do you confuse the truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while you know it? And a faction of the People of the Scripture say, meaning to each other. This was a, this was a scheme, a conspiracy, you know, a trick that they came up with that believe in that which was revealed to the believers at the beginning of the day and rejected at its end, that perhaps they will abandon their religion. Meaning, turn people away

01:53:38--> 01:54:26

from Islam through these tactics, and do not trust except those who follow your religion, say, tell such people? Indeed, the true guidance is the guidance of Allah. Do you fear lest someone be given knowledge like you were given? Or that they would thereby argue with you before your Lord? Why are you trying so hard to cover the truth? Say, indeed, all bounty is in the hands of Allah, He grants it to whom He wills and Allah is all encompassing and wise yaka. Suraj Mahima Yasha. he selects for his mercy who he wills and Allah is the possessor of great bounty will law who will fog Lila Aleem? So we should also ask Allah for his great favor. Aloma igneous Luca min fugly color Aleem.

01:54:27--> 01:55:00

And among the people of the Scriptures he who if you entrust him with a great amount of wealth, he will return it to you. And among them is He Who if you entrust him with a single silver coin, he will not return it to you unless you are constantly standing over him demanding it, meaning they're different. So don't generalize, do not stereotype. And this is something that we should remember that just because a person is from a certain group, and you've had a bad experience from someone who is from that group, then don't cancel on

01:55:00--> 01:55:44

All of them don't stereotype. That is because they say those who do wrong among them, Why do they do it? It is because they say, there is no blame upon us concerning the unlearned, meaning the Gentiles, the Arabs, we can treat them however we want. And they speak on truth about Allah while they know meaning Allah has not said anything of the sort, Bella MANOVA br D, but yes, whoever will, whoever fulfills his commitment, what the call and fears Allah, for in namaha, you have been almost 13, then Indeed, Allah loves those who fear Him. Indeed, those who exchanged the covenant of Allah and their own oaths for a small price will have no share in the hereafter. And Allah will not speak

01:55:44--> 01:56:26

to them, or look at them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will he purify them, and they will have a painful punishment. And indeed, there is among them a party who altered the Scripture with their tongues, they distort the speech of Allah. So you may think it is from the Scripture, but in fact, it is not from the Scripture, and they said this is from Allah, but it is not from Allah. And they speak on truth about Allah. Well, they know this is also a huge crime, that one attributes to Allah, what Allah has not said, or one tampers The Book of Allah, changing his verses to suit their own desires. It is not allowable, it is not possible for a human that Allah should give him the

01:56:26--> 01:57:08

Scripture and authority and Prophethood and then he would say to the people be servants to me, rather than Allah, meaning he would never turn people away from Allah. But instead, he would say, the Robin Hien be pious scholars learned men of the Lord be devoted to your rub, because of what You have taught of the Scripture, and because of what you have studied. So remember, the main objective of learning of studying of teaching the book is to become Rabbani to become devoted servants of Allah, a Buddha said, you cannot be knowledgeable until you become a learner, and you cannot be truly knowledgeable until you become armel. Meaning those who act on what they know. And it is

01:57:08--> 01:57:48

sufficient sin for you that you always argue and debate. So stop using knowledge for argumentation, start learning and start applying. This is a truly knowledgeable person, nor could he ever order you to take the angels and prophets as lords, would he order you to disbelief after you had been Muslims. And recall, when a lot of the covenant of the Prophet saying, whatever I give you up the Scripture and wisdom, and then there comes to you a messenger, confirming what is with you, you must believe in him and support him. Allah said, Have you acknowledged and taken upon that my commitment, all of the Prophet said, we have acknowledged it, he said, then bear witness, and I am with you

01:57:48--> 01:58:33

among the witnesses. And whoever turned away after that, they were the defiantly disobedient, so is it other than the religion of Allah the desire, while to him have submitted all those within the heavens on Earth, willingly or by compulsion, and to him they will be returned? Islam is submission, the entire universe submits to Allah. So this is the natural religion, because we all exist because of him. And our return is also to him. So for now, in the middle also, we should submit to Him say oh Prophet, we have believed in Allah, and then what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Ibrahim is smart he is how clear qub and the descendants and in what was given to Moosa and Risa and

01:58:33--> 01:59:18

to the profits from their Lord, we make no distinction between any of them, meaning we believe in all of them without discrimination, and we recognize the distinction given to each one of them. And we are Muslims submitting to Allah, and whoever desires other than Islam as religion, never will it be accepted from him, and he in the hereafter will be among the losers. Remember, the only religion acceptable to Allah is Islam. What are we to locomole Islam Medina, this is why we should be content with Islam, and we should say, are the two biLlahi raba weebill Islam Idina? Wahby Mohammed and sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to be here, how shall Allah guide to people who disbelieved after

01:59:18--> 01:59:59

their belief, and had witnessed that the messenger is true, and the clear signs had come to them, and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing, people, those their recompense will be that upon them as the curse of Allah and the angels and the people all together, abiding eternally, they're in the punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved, except for those who repent after that, and correct themselves. For Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful, meaning if they err, they apostate but then they repent, they make amends, Allah will forgive them the Arab how vast is your forgiveness. Indeed, those who reject the message after

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

their belief and then increase in disbelief. Never will their claimed repentance be accepted, and they are the ones astray. So those who make this religion into a joke that one day, I'm Muslim another day, I don't know, I don't know what I follow. This is a serious matter. This is not a joke, that when a person feels like it, they say they're Muslim, and their practice and when they don't feel like they leave it that this I don't identify as a Muslim, any This is not a joke take this matter very seriously. Because who knows? What if the tofield is completely taken away. Indeed, those who disbelieve and die while they're disbelievers, never with the whole capacity of the earth

02:00:41--> 02:01:28

in gold, to be accepted from one of them, if he would seek to ransom himself with it, meaning if you offered so much gold on the Day of Judgment, that take all of this and set me free, spare me, it will not be accepted, for those will be a painful punishment, and they will have no helpers, we see that if a person does an atom's weight of good today, in this life, it will be accepted, it will be multiplied. But on that day, on the Day of Judgment minute, we'll have the fill of the earth in gold will not be accepted. Charity will not be accepted on that day. So give it today, do it today. We learned that the person with the least punishment in hell will be brought out and asked would you

02:01:28--> 02:02:14

offer the earth spill in gold as ransom to come out of hell? He will say Yes, my lord. And Allah will say you have lied, I asked you for what was less and easier than that as of it was easier. And what was that? That you do not associate anything with me? But you did not even do that. So remember, if a person gives something today, if a person does something good today, if they believe today, only then will they be successful in the hereafter. And if a person does not have a man right now, then on the Day of Judgment, the Earth's fill of gold even will not suffice. This shows us how precious how valuable even is and it is something that we should be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala

02:02:14--> 02:03:01

for not that we start thinking of Islam as a burden, the commands of Islam as a burden. No, they're a blessing. So we say Samir inna? Well Alterna was alumna Allah we have heard, we have a bid we have surrendered to you. So you pardon us and you help us and and to do good, a person must keep seeking the help of Allah subhanaw taala if a person gives even half a day to in charity, that could save him. So don't be Don't be lazy over here. Do whatever good that you can and expect the best reward from Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all tofi to zakum Allah hiren subhanak Allahumma will be handig eyeshadow Allah ilaha illa Anta astell Furukawa a Tobu a lake a Salam or aleikum wa

02:03:01--> 02:03:03

rahmatullah wa barakato.

02:03:07--> 02:03:55

When it comes down and deliver God who is our killer, Karen casita, sister Tamia Baraka Luffy ki, can we take some questions? Sure, inshallah. Okay. So what is the difference between a messenger and a prophet? What were the five messengers in the first time you mentioned and whom are they exactly? Okay. So the difference between prophets and messengers is that generally, the difference that is mentioned is that a messenger is sent with a new revelation, or do you message for the people and a newbie a a prophet only revives the message of the previous messenger prophet before him. So for example, masala Salaam was era soon a messenger Allah subhanaw taala gave him kilowatt, and after

02:03:55--> 02:04:29

him, there were many prophets that came to you, and they didn't bring in your book. They weren't given a new scripture, they only revived the message of the total art and they only told people to go back to the tollbooth and follow it. And the five messengers that I mentioned at the beginning, there the Lula, Azzam, the prophets, the messengers who had determination and these are Ibrahim no Holly is Hello. Ibrahim alayhis salaam masala is Sunnah, restarted his Sunnah and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

02:04:32--> 02:04:42

The next question is if a rich person has ability to do soccer in Way of Allah, because Allah provided for him, How can a poor person earn something excellent.

02:04:43--> 02:04:59

Remember, when you give for the sake of Allah? Yes, the quantity is something that matters, but more than the quantity, it's the quality. So just because a person does not have much It doesn't mean that they cannot give anything. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

02:05:00--> 02:05:45

Save yourself from the fire, even if it is with half of a date. Meaning if, if that is all you have, and that is all you can give, then give it. And we learned that some of the companions, they would work so hard earlier, they'll do a lot more on who he, he worked for someone, and he watered their lands, their fields. And he worked for so long because such hard labor and the amount that he earned was very little. And, and that is all he had to offer. So he brought it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to give him the way of Allah. So it's not about any don't compare yourself to others. Look at what Allah has given you. And look at what you can give from what you have, and then

02:05:45--> 02:05:46

give that with sincerity.

02:05:48--> 02:05:52

Can you give some examples of spending for Allah is religion.

02:05:54--> 02:06:30

spending on Allah's religion, like I mentioned, I gave you an example of how if there's an online platform such as even this one, right? And Mashallah, so many people are getting to learn Quran, you know, learn different things. And so if a person spends on this, for instance, they cover the cost of this online platform or another online platform from where people can learn Islam can learn the Quran, then this is a way of spending on the religion of Allah spending on the religion of Allah is to spend on the promotion, the advancement, the preservation

02:06:31--> 02:06:56

of the religion of Allah. Likewise, if a person spends on a Masjid, right spends on publications on books, you know, things like that, so that people can learn Islam, they can learn what to do, and bees and this knowledge will answer their questions, it will remove their doubts, then all of these are different forms of spending on the religion of Allah.

02:06:58--> 02:07:06

Okay, my husband also listened to these lessons or is it only for sisters? This is for everybody. inshallah, Quran is wrong.

02:07:08--> 02:07:30

What are the three ways to get sweetness of demand and system? Yeah, I was thinking that these questions like what are the meanings of conviction, they can really listen to the lesson and write those points inshallah short shall, what if we, if you need to take a loan, because you're poor, for example, my friend wants to go to university, but she cannot afford it.

02:07:32--> 02:07:34

So the first thing is that

02:07:35--> 02:07:51

starting your career with a huge loan is one of the worst things that you could do to yourself, because for the next 1015 years, you're in debt, and you're trying to pay it off, and who knows if you'll be able to pay it off or not. So it's not really a wise way to start your career.

02:07:52--> 02:08:13

You know, look for different ways in which you can pay off, you know, for your education, as you were studying, and there's so many different options out there. You know, for example, take a co op or, you know, work study, do different things, so that you're not sitting with a loan, and that loan is not accumulating interest.

02:08:16--> 02:08:46

Just with me, there are many questions about mortgages and all those type things, they can go to Islam QA dot info, and you can find answers of most of the questions in Shanghai, you can also go to faith essentials.com and you can find different questions related to interest, mortgage, etc. so that you can have clarity and childlike faith essential stock. Okay, so certainly so at IQ, faith iq.com.

02:08:48--> 02:08:51

would one day we can decide

02:08:54--> 02:09:47

what does it mean not to take disbelievers as allies? Are we not allowed to have non Muslim friends? You see, ally is is not just a friend, any friendship in the sense that, you know, they are you, they're your acquaintances, you work with them, you know, you have different types of relationships with them, that's okay. As long as they're permissible, it's fine. What is forbidden is that you take them as your closest allies, so you prefer them over Allah subhanaw taala and His Messenger, you prefer them over Islam, and you believe and accept everything that they say, and you accept their influence. Because, you know, being so close to them will certainly have an impact on your

02:09:48--> 02:09:59

religion, it will have an impact on your lifestyle on your habits. So it's not that we are being forbidden to, you know, to talk to them or be on good terms with them. That is

02:10:00--> 02:10:15

something completely permissible, or what is impermissible is that you develop such a strong bond with them, that they begin to influence your everyday choices. They begin to influence your faith. And that is something that a person must be wary off.

02:10:18--> 02:10:25

I have a question regarding anxiety and depression. What is the Islamic view on getting medical help? Is it allowed?

02:10:26--> 02:10:58

Absolutely, it is allowed. I mean, if if a person needs to take medication for this purpose, it's completely fine. And like I mentioned, if a person needs therapy also that is completely fine. Allah subhanaw taala has not sent down any disease except that he has also given its cure. So we have to seek the cure, we have to seek the treatment. And just as the body can get ill, the the mind in the UK can also get ill. And for that a person must seek treatment.

02:10:59--> 02:11:28

Last question, can we pledge what our child would be like the wife of Iran? What if later, the child wants to do something else when you pledge? I mean, why why have that fear from before? Right? You've made the intention and inshallah, when you have your child, you encourage them from the beginning. And you, you provide those opportunities to them, so that inshallah they can do good work. And Trump is a killer Karen Casitas.
