Don't try to memorize your dials. So so far we have covered four dials in these sessions. Actually if we include our two more dials from
you know the first stage and we talked about welcoming Ramadan by citing the moon, so altogether six doors so how many of you tried memorizing them they were very short and easy and someone was asking yesterday the when that when should we make these doors, we can make these doors in our sujood as well in our Salah. So all these doors we can make in our suit, so inshallah you can make your sudo longer you can make your Salah beautiful by memorizing these doors, it is good to have a copy in your hand as well. But of course when you are in to do you won't be able to do that right? So inshallah it's good to have the iBooks it's good to have some posters and and you know some posted
about the dials, but the best is that you have these two aisles in your heart, inshallah and this way you will be able to, you know, ask Allah for everything ask Allah for your heart out in every Salah stir mana because these are mazumder as we are doing right Surah Surah Lhasa so he used to make these rounds. So we can also make these dogs inshallah and they are also an Arabic so there is no such difference of opinion about it that we can make these dogs in our suit or not. All right, so let's begin inshallah, today's session tomorrow there is for today in the hamdulillah medu and is dying who wanna start bureau when I will be learning in sruti and fusina woman's the Dr. Marina

What I should do Anna Mohammed Abu rasuluh are all the way let him initiate one a genius Mullah Rahmani Raheem irbis roughly surgery where your silly Omri watnall aka melissani of cannoli May Allah give us the correct understanding of the deen May Allah enable us to benefit from these sessions May Allah enable us to have from a man may only get us forgiveness this Ramadan Annie, May Allah give us forgive us this sermon and all right to insha Allah, we are going to talk about the sister nausea I'm going to show you a class. So we have done these for the other ready. So Alhamdulillah very easy short to memorize. If you haven't done it inshallah, try doing it today at
least one today. And today we are going to do two more dots. Both our the eyes for today are to do with hearts.
And Subhanallah we all are preparing for Ramadan. And we are cleaning our houses, we're making sure that everything is neat and clean. So what about our hearts, you need to clean our hearts as well, because Sahaba rhodiola one, they would enter Ramadan with clean hearts, not just clean clothes, but clean hearts. So inshallah that's something we should do as well. So we want all of you to you know, make this pact with yourself that I'm going to forgive everyone this Ramadan, maybe you can start with the easiest option first and then you know move yourself upwards one by one, forgive one person every day inshallah.
inshallah curriculum will show you towards the end.
And let's move on. So our driver today is Allahumma let's just do it together Allah malby Allah guide my heart was the diddly Sonny
and make my tongue truthful. Westlaw certainly matapalo. ob and remove graduates from my heart. Such a beautiful day. We are talking about hard twice in the store. And we are asking Allah for a truthful tongue. So if we get this sorted for us, what else do we want? Right and Hamdulillah, a good heart, a guided heart, a heart with no grudges and a tongue which is truthful. And another these are the two problems we have to deal with. Right? These are the two things they bother so much our tongue slips and our hearts. They get.
You can say sick, or sometimes they get sad, and they start thinking evil about others. So if these two things are sorted and humbler we have a great blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So here we're going to learn about the reference of this euro Where are we getting it from? So we are getting it from so II and the narration goes Rasulullah sallallahu Sinan us to meet this there are any if you notice, it's a longer the
DA starts from here rugby I need. So this is a beautiful long euro we are just memorizing the last phrase of it. Why? Because sister Tamia quoted that yesterday and it's easy to it's easy to do it like this
When we go phrase by phrase instead of trying to memorize something longer, but in shall have a screenshot. And you can make this every day in Ramadan because it's beautiful, like not just once you can make it many times because we're asking a line just offer them guidance. We're also asking a lover or ease. We're asking Allah for help. You're asking a lot for being grateful. And also a person who remembers a lot much so many amazing things and also forgiveness. Towards the end we're asking Allah for the guided heart, and straighten tongue and a heart with no ill feelings. So easy way to memorize this word is or la dee dee Colby guide my heart. One part was sadly This was sadly
sunny and straighten my tongue was slow and remove Salima grudges, rancor, hatred, ob for my heart, beautiful hamdulillah. And while we're talking about ill feelings, there is a Hadees and Alhamdulillah today's Thursday, so, we can avail this opportunity today. So the Hadees goes is from Sahih Muslim, the gates of Jannah are open on Mondays and Thursdays. So today is one of the days Allah forgives everyone who does not do shirk except a person with hatred between himself and his brother. So between two people, it will be said about that person about are about these two people who are hitting each other, who have problems with each other with grudges for each other, delay
these two until they reconcile until the sort of their matters until they fix their issues. Delay these two until they reconcile delay these two until the reconcile twice.
So we can get forgiveness every Thursday every Monday but Subhanallah just because we're holding grudges just because we are delaying this amazing you know
blessing from Allah of getting forgiveness
This is like a it's a it's a big loss to me Allah enable us to make use of every Monday and every Thursday. Another beautiful there is a long Habib Elena Emad or Allah endured a spate was a was a in houfy Rubina and beautify our hearts with faith. What karela in uncovered well for so well is young and cause us to hate disbelief, sins and transgression. So in this there are we asking Allah subhana wa Taala for two things. We want a man to be fixed in our hearts we should love the man we asking Allah that Allah enable us to love the man. And at the same time we asking Allah subhanaw taala to make us hate could not just go for but also for so different types of sins. You can say deviance, in
other words, and RCN rebellion crossing limits,
asking Allah subhanaw taala for such a precious heart, if this door is accepted in our favor, then it's the greatest gift of Allah subhanaw taala because we won't even feel like doing anything wrong. You won't even feel like committing sins, you won't even have any attraction to any of the wrong activities out there.
So May Allah enable us to make these doors and May Allah grant us all these doors handle it. So just $2 for today, both are to do with hearts, and we need to remember that inshallah we are going to enter Ramadan, we are going to welcome Ramadan with clean hearts. No matter what a person has done to you. It's not worth putting your forgiveness at putting your forgiveness, forgiveness at stake for that, remember that. So we cannot miss out this opportunity of forgiveness every Monday and Thursday by keeping graduates and you know, when you keep a grudge, it doesn't harm the person you are hating it, it kind of harms you. Because you're thinking about the whole situation over and over
again. The other person doesn't even though so you are giving your brain your heart to someone you hate or dislike. So don't do that. We don't need to hate anyone. We can hate the bad actions but not the people inshallah. So with that reminder for all of us will conclude panic alarm will become bigger. I shall have a la ilaha illa under as the federal it really said I'm already going to live a very

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
are all the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish Rashi sodbury were silly emri watlow looked at a melissani yufka who Kali Allahumma Nickleby was a deadly Sani was salute so hematol be Armenian, your berada mean?
Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran what inna who will attend Zilla Rob Billa alameen kneser lobby here ruhul amin, Allah kobika liter Khun Amina moon zerene and indeed the Quran is the revelation of the Lord of the worlds. the trustworthy spirit, meaning gibreel has brought it down upon your heart, all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you may be of the Warner's, we see in this in these verses, we see in these verses that the Quran is the speech of Rabbul aalameen of the Creator of the Universe, and it was sent down to the world from above. The thing is that everything we see around us is actually a creation. It is Luke, but the Quran, the Book of Allah that is before
us. This is kalaam Allah, it is the speech of Allah. So it is literally from out of this world. And this is the reason why the words of the Quran are not like any other words, their mere recitation is blessing and they don't just bring information to the reader, but they bring much more than that. What is it that they bring to a person? Allah tells us in the Quran? Yeah, a yohannes for the year at como ella to Mila become where she fell on Lima for sudo where who don't worry, moto lil meaning Colby fugly Allah He will be Raj Mati Furby Malika folly of rato, who will hire me Maya, my own, that all mankind, there has come to you instruction from your Lord and healing for what is in the
chests, and guidance and mercy for the believers. Say, in the bounty of Allah and in His mercy in that let them rejoice, it is better than what they accumulate. The Quran brings instruction and healing, guidance and mercy. It is the fuddle of Allah, the huge favor of Allah and His mercy, something for which we should rejoice because it is better than everything that people accumulate. Imagine this, all of the things of this world, it's money, it's gold, and whatever else that people like to collect. All of that is less compared to the Quran. The Quran is better. And this is why we should rejoice, we should feel happy. We should feel delighted that we're able to spend time with
the Quran Alhamdulillah we have now
completed three Jews. What a blessing. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to complete all of the Quran and to read it again and again. Because Samuel kalami Kalam Allah, the best speech is in fact the speech of Allah and because it is directly from him, this is why it is one of the strongest and most effective ways of drawing close to Allah subhanaw taala. Even Raja Rahim Allah said, that of all the voluntary deeds, by which a slave can attain nearness to Allah is the frequent recitation of the Quran and listening to it with reflection, attentiveness and comprehension. The thing is that we do different voluntary deeds in order to draw close to Allah subhanaw taala we perform Nuffield
prayers, we say a does B hat, etc. But the voluntary deed that will instantly help us connect with Allah subhanaw taala feel closer to him azzawajal is spending time with the book of Allah. Why? Because as hubub even said, that draw near Allah as much as you are able and know that you can never draw near him with anything more beloved to him than his speech. His speech is from him. So if you want Allah then grab on to what has come from him, which is also his rope, the Quran, so we should happily spend time with the book of Allah and eagerly listen to it. May Allah subhanaw taala fill our hearts with the love of the Quran.
So let's begin just number four.
Are all the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim lanton Allah will be reflected on fecal matter a boon walmartone Phil Coleman Shea in for in the La Habra here Eileen, never will you attain the good reward, you will never attain piety until you spend from those things which you love. And whatever you spend, Indeed, Allah is Knowing of it. Many people believe themselves to be good people. And the thing is that when we do something good, then very quickly, we begin to feel satisfied with it. But real piety, real goodness is of the person who spends what they love for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And here bill has been mentioned lantana lobera, you can
never attain beard and bear signifies ample, extensive goodness, meaning you cannot attain extensive goodness, meaning you have not done much good until you spend of what you love. You cannot reach a higher level of piety, you cannot reach the next level until you give of what you love. Or you cannot attain the fuddle the extensive favor of your Lord, which is Jenna and good reward until you gave of what you love. What are the things that we love? Yes, it is wealth. Because as Allah says what in the hoonah have been highly lusha deed. And indeed, the human being is in love of money, in love of wealth, very intense. So when a person spends their money which they love, why they spend it
out of love for Allah subhanaw taala because when you love someone you spend on them, you give them the best that you have done such a person receives Allah's love in return. And Allah subhanaw taala grants them higher levels of piety of his favours of paradise. But if we think about it, money is not everything that we love, it is not all that we love. Sometimes our love for sleep can in fact be greater than our love for money. Sleeping in can be so enjoyable, but to get what a person does not have, they have to cut down on some of that enjoyment. And some of you are having to give up your rest, your sleep, perhaps your own personal time, your downtime, or your hobbies or perhaps a
favorite TV show in order to spend time with the Quran. May Allah subhanaw taala grant you bid for what you are giving up in his way. Remember, to get somewhere you have to give up certain things and sometimes giving up those those things can be incredibly hard on the knifes giving up those things can be incredibly hard on the knifes but we do
make such sacrifices for our worldly goals, right? We spend 1000s of dollars and 1000s of hours in order to make our resumes impressive. The same way. If we want to increase in piety, if we want the high levels of Paradise, the generous, ample reward of our Lord, extensive reward of our Lord, then we have to spend of what we love. We have to make some sacrifices. Let's look at the companions. What did they do? And as of Malik reported that when this idea was revealed about on how to do a lot more and who got up and he said O Allah's Messenger, Allah says lantern Allah will build a habitat on fecal matter a boon and the most beloved of my property to me, is the barrel her garden, so I
give it in Allah's cause. Urdu be raha Well, the hahaha in the love, I hope to receive good out of it, I hope to receive its bid and to have it stored for me with Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said back in back in the valley, c'mon, Robbie hone, Valley Kemal on Robbie Holden, excellent, excellent. This is a property that is profitable. Meaning This is an investment that you have made from which you will be you will get profit. Remember that this garden of ultra huddle de la Mourinho, was located across from the masjid and even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to go there and drink its water and rest there. Today, this garden is no more the place where
the palm trees stood, is covered in stone. And it's an all of it is basically covered by stone and it's all part of the mustard. The garden is gone from the world, but it is forever preserved with Allah. So preserve what you love, by giving it to Allah subhanaw taala hoping for a bit with the Hahaha, in the law. Even taymiyah said that when a person seeks nearness to Allah, by spending what they love, then it becomes more superior to other things which are of equal value to it, meaning your love for something increases its value. And therefore, when you spend that in the way of Allah, the reward will also be more it will be greater. So the sentimental value of things is known to
Allah subhanaw taala and He rewards accordingly for in Allah be here, alim, Indeed Allah is Knowing of it. You see, typically, we love things that are valuable. So our Deen teaches us the best of manners. It gives us the highest moral standards that before you give anything, check, is it something that I would like for myself? Is this something that I love to use? liking for others? What one likes for oneself is a requirement of iemon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, lie You mean or other Dune? Hector, you haeberli, Effie, Hema you're hobbling up, see him in and hide, that a slave cannot truly believe until he loves for his brother, what he loves for himself of
good things. And yes, when a person gives what they love, it is painful for sure. But that momentary pain is later replaced with bid and its reward. We learned that remodeled yellow horn who, when he got a piece of land in Claiborne he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he said, I have a piece of land which is better than any property that I have ever received. So what do you advise me regarding it yellow suit Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What should I do? The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said If you wish, you can keep it as an endowment, meaning as a walk, to be used for charitable purposes. And that is what are muddled. EULA Horne who did he gave that land
as charity, on the condition that the land would neither be sold nor given as a gift nor as inheritance and it would constantly be be dedicated for good causes. So its yield the profit that would come from it, it would be used for the poor and the emancipation of slaves and for travelers and other charitable causes. So are muddled EULA Horne who also gave what he love and look at what he reaped. And sometimes it is necessary to give up what we like what we love, why in order to discipline the soul, because if you keep feeding the soul, everything that it wishes for, then you will become a slave to it. When we give we typically give what is extra and that is good.
But a higher level of giving is that you gave what you love most. But look at Allah subhanaw taala has mercy over here, it hasn't been said that you have to give all of what you love, but mimma to have been some of what you love and the reward that Allah gives for what you give him for what you give for his pleasure. No one else can give that one I don't feel Coleman Shay in for in Allah be here I lean he knows what you're giving. He knows how much you love it. He knows how much pain you're feeling. But your love for Allah is greater than your love for these things. So give it for his sake, and attained the bit that Allah has promised. Then it has said, all food, meaning that is
lawful, was also lawful to the children of Israel, he except what is the law, he had made unlawful to himself before the Torah was revealed, say O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So bring the Torah and recite it. If you should be truthful, here, in response to some of the criticism of the Jews is being given. They said to the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam that if you claim to be a follower of Ibrahim, then how come your dietary law is different from ours. So it is clarified over here that originally all the things that are permissible now were permissible before and then your Cobra a Salaam had made certain things unlawful on himself due to his health. And also remember that
certain things were forbidden on the Bani Israel as a result of their wrongdoing. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was only reviving the original law. And whoever invents about Allah untruth after that, then those are truly the wrongdoers. And this shows us that when there is something clearly mentioned in the Scripture, and when a person rejects it, then this is wronging oneself. All sadhak Allah say, Allah has told the truth, the fact is, that we will find many conflicting statements out there. So what is true, what is not true? We look at what Allah tells us, we look at the Quran called sadaqa Allah, so follow the religion of Ibrahim inclining toward truth,
and he was not of the polytheists. Indeed, the first house meaning for worship that was established for mankind was the one at Makkah, bless it, and a guidance for the world's another objection they raised was regarding the Qibla. That if the first pillar is better marketers than why not face it, so it is clarified here, that the first pillar, the first house of worship was always the one which is in bucka. bucka is another name of Makkah, and it was the first place of worship, the Kaaba, and it was for leanness for all people. And this house, this bait, it is mobile rock, it is blessing. Even in the Bible. It says bless it are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on
pilgrimage as they pass through the valley of bucha. They make it a place of springs. The autumn rains also covered with pools. They go from strength to strength, to each appears before God in Zion, Hear my prayer. Lord God Almighty, listen to me God of Jacob lebay Kala Humala bake.
So mobarak is the karma. Now, remember that mobarak is a thing that is abounding in benefits. Mubarak is something that has Baraka in it, meaning that you get a lot out of it. And Baraka is when what appears to be limited becomes more it increases. So the Kaaba is mobarak. Why? Because there are so many religious and worldly benefits one can get by simply visiting it. We see that for example, if a person prays in a muster how long then the reward for Salah is so much. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, one prayer in the sacred mosque is better than 100,000 prayers anywhere else. hygiene or mineral can only be performed at the Kaaba. And we see that when a person
performs hygiene or Umbra, then they get forgiven the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, well, Anil hijjah Yeah, the MoMA cannot Pablo who that hedge destroys meaning it sent it erases, it completely destroys the sins that were committed before it. And a person returns from hedge free of sin. Like he wasn't the day that he was born. There is so much reward for the love for sorry for the recitation of the Quran. For the Tobia for the vicar and the draws that you make at the Kaaba. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
That the pilgrims meaning those who go for Hajj and Umrah, they're the guests of Allah. So if they call upon him, he answers them. And if they seek forgiveness from him, he forgives them. And remember that when a person visits the Kaaba regularly meaning for Hajj and for Umbra, they go constantly than this is something that removes poverty and sin. There is abundance of risk, there is that feeling of community, that ability to worship together, and
collectively, it has a completely different impact on the heart, the love that you develop for Allah over there, the eagerness that you develop over there to repent to Allah. So yes, going for Omar going for Hajj, yes, it can be difficult at many different levels, the journey can be long, it can be very expensive, or there's the discomfort of travel, you know, using the washrooms over there, etc. But the worship that is performed at the Kaaba is worth it. So a person should always have that intention and that desire to go there and worship Allah over there. It is said in it ours, in it are clear signs such as macom Ibrahim, the standing place of Ibrahim, and whoever enters it shall be
safe. And this is one of the first things that a person experiences when they visit the house of Allah, the peace of heart, just looking at the Kaaba brings that feeling. And as you make power off, you feel closer to Allah subhanaw taala. And the person who goes to it, meaning who goes to the Kaaba for Hajj than they are in Allah subhanaw taala has protection. Even we learned that towards the end of time, when the jail will appear, then those in Makkah will be safe. And due to Allah from the people is a pilgrimage to the house for whoever is able to find their to away, but whoever disbelieves that Indeed Allah is free from need of the worlds. We see over here that Hajj is an
obligation on who on those who are able, and an obligation should not be delayed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, hasten in fulfilling the obligation of Hajj for none of you knows what may come before him as an obstacle. Subhan Allah, we also learn in a Hadees that Allah subhanaw taala says, when I have given health to a servant in his body, and given him ample provision, and yet five years go by, and he does not come to visit me meaning my house, then such a person is my room. They're truly deprived. The Prophet sallallahu early cinema to warned us take benefit from this house, for indeed, it will be raised two times, and the third time it will be lifted up. And
this is something that we can really feel these days when we see the pictures of the Kaaba, around the Kaaba, how it's empty. May Allah subhanaw taala give us a tow vehicle to go there have the intention that he or Allah, I am going to go visit your house, I am going to go for oma, I am going to go for Hajj. Say all people have the Scripture. Why do you disbelieve in the verses of Allah, while Allah is witness over what you do? Meaning Allah is watching your actions, your behavior, so do not deny the verses of Allah say, all People of the Scripture, why do you avert from the way of Allah, those who believe seeking to make it seem deviant while you are witnesses, and Allah is not
unaware of what you do. So these objections that they were raising all the time, they were not for the sake of the truth. They were just to make Islam seem deviant? Well, you will have believed if you obey a party of those who were, who were given the Scripture, they would turn you back after your belief to being unbelievers, the Muslims are being warned over here.
And how could you disbelieve? While two you are being recited the verses of Allah and among you is His Messenger, will k photographer owner or untung total Aleykum, Ayatollah Wolfie come Rasulo. And whoever holds firmly to Allah has indeed been guided to a straight path. You see, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in Medina, when these verses were revealed. And the Muslims at the time were surrounded by many enemies. They were the hypocrites. They were the people of the book, and there was a constant pressure from them. And they used different tactics to convince Muslims to leave Islam. And some of those are actually mentioned earlier and sort of earlier in one. So how is
it that the Muslims were to remain steadfast in such a toxic environment? Meaning when there were so many external pressures, constant, you know, criticism on their religion, and the use of trickery and deceit to turn the people away from Islam? How were they supposed to survive? We see in this ayah Allah says
How could you disbelieve meaning you cannot you have no reason. When there's two things, the first thing was untung. toddler Alaykum Ayatollah, that when the verses of Allah are recited to you, so we see that listening to the verses of Allah. Listening to the Quran is a means of becoming steadfast on Islam. A person can recite the Quran themselves also, they can read a book of the seed on their own. But listening to the verses has a completely different impact. And secondly, what he called rasuluh. among you is His Messenger, being in the company of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, having his guidance, having his example. This is also a source of sebat of stability and steadfastness on
Islam, the presence of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, itself was a source of firmness for the companions. So if we want to be firm on Islam, what do we need? We also need the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and how is that going to be? That is going to be when we learn the Syrah when we study the Hadees, and we don't just study it once and then put it away. But we stay connected with it. Just as we stay connected with the Quran. We don't just read it once, but we read it again and again, we listen to it again and again. We stay connected on a regular basis with the Quran and with the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is something that is
essential for us and for our families, for our communities. Allah subhanaw taala says Yeah, uh, you her levena amanu all you who have believed it the hula fear Allah, how haka Ducati he, as he should be feared? Well after Mouton, Illa unto Muslim own, and do not die, except as Muslims, meaning leave this world in the state of Islam. And this is something that we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for that he or Allah keep us firm on Islam. And it should be our wish that the last words we say before we die are La ilaha illa Allah. So in this ayah we are told it duckula helper to party, Fear Allah as he should be feared. This does not mean that you become terrified, and you leave everything and
you never get up from the prayer rug. This doesn't mean that a person do that a person does not do anything in their lives, that they just become sad all the time that they don't socialize, they don't get married, or they don't take care of their family or they leave their job, etc. No thorough cadonia is not a taco. Taco is not about quitting the car doesn't mean the fear of God doesn't mean that you don't do anything. One of the companions explained the core as gathering your glow your clothes together when walking through a path that is surrounded with thorny bushes. So the core is not that you sit and you don't go anywhere. No, you have to go through life. You have to go through
those paths that are surrounded by thorny bushes, but you have to learn to protect yourself. And that is only possible when a person remembers Allah. So what is the core? The core is that a person lives in this world. They engage with people, they do the things that they're supposed to. However, dakwah is a Utah fella euro saw that a person fears Allah that a person obeys Allah, and they don't disobey Him.
Find your Torah follow your Assad that Allah should be obeyed and not disobeyed. What I used to call a fella yoke for that Allah should be shown gratitude to not in gratitude when you've got a fella Yun, sir, and that Allah should be remembered and not forgotten. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it tequila hazlemere konta fear Allah wherever you are, meaning whatever situation you are in, whoever it is that you are dealing with whatever work that you are doing, Fear Allah at that time in that moment in that place in that work. Koala doesn't mean that you don't do anything worthwhile. So you will be heavily Lehi, Jimmy I want to for Rocco, and hold firmly to the
rope of Allah, how jamea all together? What is the rope of Allah, it is the book of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said him told us that he said, Kitab Allah, who are heavily Allah, the Book of Allah is the rope of Allah, which is a man dude in a summer a lot of which has been locked down from the sky to the earth, meaning it has been sent down from above to you to connect you with Allah subhanaw taala so hold on to it firmly. Hold on to it.
Firmly spend your life with the Quran. If you hold on to it, then your connection with Allah will remain strong. And if that is the case, then you will remain on the right path and hold on to the rope of Allah Jimmy are together. Meaning that it together it's not just important for one person to hold on to the Quran, but for all of us. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah likes for you three things, that you worship Allah, and do not associate anything with him. That all of you hold on to the rope of Allah firmly, and that you are sincere to your leaders. So this is something that Allah likes for us, that all of us together, hold on to the Quran, why together so
that you're a source of strength for each other. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained the relationship between the believers, he said the believer to another believer is like a building whose different parts strengthen one another. And when he said that, he clasped his fingers together, the thing is that we need one another. We need each other, we cannot survive on our own. And one of the best ways of staying connected is through the Quran. And then it is said well after for Rocco, and do not become divided, meaning instead of bringing one another down, we need to lift one another up. And the person who reads the Quran, the Quran truly enters their heart, then such a
heart expands a great deal. There is compassion and there in that heart, there's empathy. There's concern for others, that a person has the ability to forgive, to pardon to overlook to be generous one after four Rocco do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you when you were enemies, and he brought your hearts together, and you came by and you became by his favor brothers Subhan Allah, consider the state of the Muslims before Islam, the Arabs were constantly fighting one another. And because of Islam, what happened? They became united like brothers, and this bond of brotherhood through Islam, this bond of sisterhood through Islam, this bond at times is stronger
than even blood relationships. When you come together because of the Quran, you learn to love one another for the sake of Allah. And this kind of love is actually everlasting. And this can only be with Allah's favor. Remember the favor of Allah upon you. Previously, you were enemies, and Allah by his favor, joined your hearts together. So this shows us that when the hearts of people are united, they're together. This is a sign of Allah's favor upon them. It shows that they're doing something right that Allah has blessed them with Unity. But if the hearts are divided, there's jealousy. There's disrespect, lack of trust fighting argumentation, then such people are deprived of Allah's
Then it is said, and you were on the end, you were on the edge of a pit of the fire, and he saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you his verses that you may be guided? Walter commencal oma Tonia Runa Ellen Hale, and let there be arising from you or Muslims, a nation, meaning a group, and what does this group do? inviting to all that is good, meaning you Muslims should be your people who call everyone to what is good. And there should be some people amongst you, who are dedicated to this cause who give this cause 100% of their time? And what is this cause? call people to what is good, what is good, call on is good. Everything that the Quran calls to is good, all works of
righteousness are good. So call people to goodness to hide. Call them in different ways. Invite them in different ways. Use your skills, use your talents, use your abilities, be creative, and call people to hide. Because if Allah guides even one person through you, then that is better for you than a whole lot of worldly treasure. Well, Madonna Bill Maher, roofie way and hohner Anil munkar they should enjoy what is right and forbid what is wrong, what Allah eco home will mostly home and those will be the successful. So we see here that the people who do these three things what that what you know higher calling people to good honorable maroof when a handle Moncure commanding what
is right for bidding what is wrong, then such people are successful, and do not be like the ones who became divided and deferred after the clear proofs had come to them. And those
We'll have a great punishment. On the day some faces will turn white, and some faces will turn black. As for those whose faces turned black, this this is referring to the gloom and the depression and the fear. To them, it will be said, Did you disbelieve after your belief, then taste the punishment for what you use to reject, but as for those whose faces will turn white, shining, they will be within the mercy of Allah, they will abide there in eternally. These are the verses of Allah, we recite them to you in truth. These are truths and Allah wants no injustice to the worlds to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and to Allah will all
matters be returned.
kuntum Hira matin, you are the best nation, Allah is saying that the Muslim Ummah is who Hira omitting the best nation, the best people. Why reject lameness, because you have been produced for mankind, meaning for the benefit of human beings, for delivering to people, prophetic messages, showing people prophetic examples, because now no more profits are coming. So this responsibility is on our shoulders. So we must do this. And this shows us that as Muslims, we cannot just focus on our personal lives on our personal worship, we have an obligation, we have to be concerned about the greater good. We have to call people to that which is good, we have to bring benefit to mankind, we
have to be concerned about their afterlife. But when is it that we can be the best nation that morona Bill Maher roof? What an hohner Anil munkar? What took me know when a bill when we do these three things, what are they you enjoy what is right and forbid What is wrong? and believe in Allah?
You enjoy what is right and forbid what is wrong. This is being honest with people, this is being sincere to them, that you tell them what is right. Even if the truth hurts, it doesn't mean that you become harsh in the way you tell them. But you must tell them. The thing is that all of us need a push to do what is right. Because the enough's finds it hard to do good. So you need that encouragement. We need voices that urge us we need good reminders to push us to encourage us and at the same time. We also need someone to warn us to stop us from wrong. Why? Because the knifes is attracted to sin, Chopin, also beautifies sin. This is why this is an obligation upon the Muslims
that we command one another, we remind one another of what is right and we forbid one another from what is wrong. So if we want to be the best Amati meaning of the best of the oma of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam then we have to do these three things. Remember maruf is every deed that is considered good. That is well known as something good. It is not considered bad. And Mancha is everyday that Allah subhanaw taala dislikes that the believers also condemn the intellect the and the fitrah. Human Nature also rejects it. So commanding what is right for bidding what is wrong. This is something very important in Islam. We cannot just focus in our own lives and say, oh, let
people do whatever they want. No, we have to inform people. Of course we have to inform them with wisdom, with care with empathy, not with arrogance and judgment that we push people away. No, we have to use wisdom over there. But we cannot say to each their own. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Islam has eight shares, meaning there is different ways to excel in Islam. There is Islam, there's Salah, there is a cat, there's fasting there's Hajj, and there is a mobile maroof and nahi and and Mancha and jihad. So according to this Hadees, we see that honorable maruf nahida in one cut are very, very important.
In another head, these we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said or people, Allah the Exalted says, and listen to this carefully, Allah the Exalted says, You must command what is right. And you must forbade what is wrong before a time comes that you call upon me and I will not answer you. You ask me and I will not give you you seek help from me and I will not help you. Meaning if you stop taking care of one another. If you stop taking care of Allah's Deen, then Allah will also abandon you. And our problem is that we have raised such huge barriers between ourselves and
People that we don't let people say anything to us that this is my life, my choice, I will do whatever I want, and you don't tell me anything. The thing is that truth hurts, truth stings. And when someone reminds you of what is right are warns you of what is wrong, it is easy to see it as judgment. We think that advice is criticism, but it is not always criticism, it is not always judgment. And remember, the worst place to be is inside an echo chamber, meaning that a person does not want to receive any feedback. They just want people to agree with them on everything. And if that is the case, then a person will be unaware of their own mistakes. So how can they improve? This
is why someone said that your true friend is the one who tells you the truth, not the one who always agrees with you.
Then it has said if only the People of the Scripture had believed it would have been better for them. Among them are believers, but most of them are defiantly disobedient. You see the People of the Book failed to command what is right and forbid what is wrong. And when we begin to call everything okay. And we fail to distinguish between people's desires and God's guidance, then we confuse the truth with falsehood. Last Pandora says laniado rule Camila other, they will not harm you except for some annoyance, meaning all they can do is just hurt you with their words, they can actually cause you any damage. And if they do fight you, they will follow and if they do fight you,
they will show you their backs, then they will not be aided. They have they have been put under humiliation By Allah, wherever they are overtaken, except for a covenant from Allah and a rope from the Muslims, and they have drawn upon themselves anger from Allah and have been put under destitution. That is because they disbelieved in the verses of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That is because they disobeyed and habitually transgressed. Lay so so they're not all the same. What a just statement among the People of the Scripture is a community that is standing meaning with the obedience of Allah, reciting the verses of Allah during periods of the night and
prostrating. So we see over here, the recitation of the Quran in the night is mentioned such that in the night is mentioned. So remember, staying up at night to recite the Quran, is actually something very virtuous. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also recited Quran in the night to gibreel when he would meet him every night in the month of Ramadan. The thing is that during the day, you don't always get the chance to recite the Quran, because of the noise and the chaos and you know the different things that you have to do. So, if you're not able to make time during the day, make time during the night for yourself for the time that you spend with Allah subhanaw taala in worship, and
this is important as part of self care. And sometimes staying in the night staying up in the night for the recitation of the Quran can also include studying the Quran studying sacred knowledge, even Buhari mentions a summary Baylor ilmi chatting at night about knowledge or other enemy while Illa to belay, teaching knowledge and admonition at night, in his books are he Buhari, because in the night you were able to focus. So if this is for the sake of Allah, then when you stay up at night to study sacred knowledge, this is something rewardable you may know in a biller, he will yo Miller here, they believe in Allah and the Last Day and they enjoy what is right and forbade what is wrong and
hasten to good deeds. What will he come in a slightly hain, and those are among the righteous. So these are the qualities of the righteous, and whatever good they do, never will it be removed from them because Allah is appreciative. And Allah is Knowing of the righteous, Indeed, those who disbelieve, never will their wealth or their children, avail them against Allah at all. And those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide there in eternally. The example of what they spend in this worldly life is like that of a wind containing frost, which strikes the harvest of a people who have wronged themselves, and that wind destroys that crop. And Allah has not wronged them, but
they wronged themselves. So we see that when a person commits sin, when they do wrong, they actually invite difficulties and problems upon themselves. Allah subhanaw taala does not wronged people. It is people who wronged themselves
So committing sin is one of the worst ways of self harm, if you think about it, and we're seeing this idea that what is being condemned is spending only on worldly life. So when a person only believes in this life, they don't believe in the Hereafter, they don't prepare for the hereafter. And all of their resources, their time, their money, you know, they're, they're thinking, everything, their effort is going into worldly things that now Okay, I want to eat here and there. And now I want those clothes and those shoes. Now I want to travel here. And now I want this good thing and that good thing. A person is only concerned about worldly life than all of that spending.
All of that investment is Like what? Like a storm that destroys a crop. Imagine meaning on the Day of Judgment, when they will need some harvest, when they will need some reward, they will not find it. Why? Because all of their spending and their effort got destroyed with the world. So we need to think about ourselves that where is the majority of our wealth and our attention going? Is it going only in worldly pursuits and worldly comforts? Or are we also preparing for the hereafter?
Well, you will have believed, do not take as intimates those other than yourselves, for they will not spare you any ruin. So don't be naive. They wish you would have hardship, meaning they love to see you suffer. Hatred has already appeared from their mouth, and what their chests conceal is greater. We have certainly made clear to you the signs, if you will use reason. Here you are loving them, but they are not loving you. Amazing. Believers heart is vast, right? So a believer thinks good about others, and also has love for them. But everyone is not like that. There are people who do not wish well for others. And sometimes you you experienced this from people that no matter how
much you want to good for them. They don't want good for you. While you believe in the Scripture, all of it. And when they meet you, they say we believe but when they're alone, they bite their fingertips at you in rage, say die in your rage. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of that within the chests. If God touches you, it distresses them. Why? Because they're jealous of you. They don't like you. But if harm strikes you, they rejoice at it, like a lover who could do this is someone who is happy. They're rejoicing at the suffering of another. ie This is very lowly, despicable behavior. This is being two faced, the believer is happy at the blessings of others and sad at their suffering. An
enemy is someone who will rejoice at the suffering of the other. So how is it that you deal with such enemies, that when you get hurt, they're laughing at you. They're rejoice over that? How is it that you should respond? We're in the middle with a taco layer, do recon k dome shape. And if you are patient and you fear Allah, their plot will not harm you at all. Indeed, Allah is encompassing of what they do. Meaning if you're a patient, and you fear Allah, then they they're laughing. They're mockery, their desire to harm you is not going to work. What is patience? What is stubborn, that you don't lose heart? That you don't, that you don't get? You don't get affected by their
mockery? What is the core that you fear Allah, and you keep doing what is right. So sobor patient says that you don't believe what your haters say about you. What they say about you to you is their problem, not yours. What is the core that you don't forget that you are still a servant of Allah. So you have to do what is right.
So in this ayah, we see that if a person has suffered and taqwa, then the harm of the enemies will not actually harm him, the efforts of the enemies will not actually harm him. And we also see in this idea, that people who are too faced meaning who show you their good side, but behind you, they try to harm you than such people are not actually your friends, they are in reality your enemies. So ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from such people. There is a beautiful era in which we learn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us Allahumma in the road to become inggeris su, that Oh Allah, I seek your refuge from an evil neighbor, woman zodion to show you booni public machine
and I seek your refuge from a spouse who makes me old before all
Old age, meaning they give me so much trouble. They cause so much stress that I become old before I actually become old. And this happens with so many people, that they look so much older than they are because of the stress in their life. Women will add in your corner Allah yarrabah and I seek your protection from a child who becomes a master to me. When a man in your corner Allah you're either born and I seek your refuge from a from a property from wealth that becomes a source of torture for me. Let me clean and mark it in and from a friend a so called friend who is constantly plotting how that I know who toorani is, I is watching me will call buoy Ronnie, and his heart is
also keeping a guard is also guarding how Indra hasn't eaten the fun haha if you see something good in me, he hides it.
What either I say he attend either Aha. And if he see something bad in me, he spreads it.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from such people. Now some things about the Battle of or heard are mentioned what a little dopamine Alec and remember when you are Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left your family why to post the believers at their stations for the battle and Allah is hearing and knowing the prophets, insightfulness, preparation organization, all of this is being praised over here and before that, the fact that he left his family to go for battle is being mentioned. You see leaving one's family even for a short while can be very difficult. But Allah is Samir on alim. Allah hears he knows the sacrifices that you're making, Allah is hearing because when
you go out for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. When you do something for the sake of Allah, you talk to the people around you, sometimes positive things, sometimes complaints, sometimes there's victory, sometimes there's daraz what is it that we are saying?
When two parties among you were about to lose courage? Why because our beloved obey the hypocrite, he left the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and 300 people went back to Medina with him. And there were some sincere Muslims who lost courage because of that. And they also began thinking of leaving, but Allah who was their ally, so he gave them strength to remain and upon Allah, the believers should rely and already had Allah given you victory at the Battle of better while you were few and number than fear Allah, perhaps you will be grateful, meaning you should not lose heart when you face new and different challenges. Don't you remember how Allah granted you success before? How
he helped you navigate such a complicated situation? So is he not going to help you again? What do you expect from Allah? What did the Muslims haven't bothered? They only had the help of Allah. And how is it that they succeeded because of their subber they did not give up because of their taqwa. They were mindful of Allah. So remember, the real help comes from Allah. Remember, when you said to the believers, is it not sufficient for you that your Lord should reinforce you with 3000 angels sent down? Yes, if you remain patient and conscious of Allah, and the enemy should come upon you attacking in rage, your Lord will reinforce you with 5000 angels having marks of distinction and
Allah made it not except as a sign of good tidings for you and to reassure your hearts thereby and victory is not except from Allah, woman not through a laminar in dilla. Who is Allah, Allah Aziz al Hakim be Exalted in Might the wise that he might cut down a section of the disbelievers or suppress them so that they turn back disappointed. Lay Salah communal Emery Shea, not for you will Prophet sallallahu wasallam is the decision whether he should cut them down or forgive them or punish them for indeed they are wrongdoers. You see when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam got injured at the Battle of Ohio. He said how will these people be guided when they have done this to their
messenger? So it is made clear here that it is Allah who guides and at times, people who have gone very far away from guidance are the ones whom Allah subhanaw taala gives guidance to. So never be judgmental about people, neither about yourself nor others, that so and so could never be guided. I could never be guided no lace Allah camino Amity Shay. Can you imagine there were people who came to fight the Muslims, individuals whose goal was to kill the profits.
Allahu Allah Sutherland and some of them actually managed to physically harm him, break his tooth, he was bleeding, and yet among them are those whom Allah guided. So, yes, you may have done horrible things in your past, you may have said horrible things, unmentionable things, you may think that there is no hope for you, but lace Allah camino Emery Shea, this is not for you to decide, if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not have any say in this matter, nor do you and I lay Salah communal and reshade guidance is in the hands of Allah. Our job is to keep praying for guidance for ourselves and also for others, and to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is on
the earth, He forgives whom He wills and punishes whom He wills and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
All you who have believed, do not consume interest doubled and multiplied, but fear Allah that you may be successful. Why is the prohibition of interest being mentioned over here within the verses about the Battle of are heard, because what was the reason why the Muslim suffered at the Battle of Ohio, it was their love for wealth, when the Muslims saw that the enemy had retreated. And some Muslims were already collecting the war booty. Those who had been posted at certain positions, left their positions in order to go get a share for themselves. So it was the love of wealth that caused so much suffering. So remember, love for wealth, greed for wealth is actually destructive. It can
make a person disregard what is lawful and what is lawful. So the Muslims are advised over here Leave Riba with the canal allottee or a debt relief, caffeine and fear the fire which has been prepared for the disbelievers and obey Allah and the messenger that you may obtain mercy was Sadie Oh, and hasten Isla ma filati Mira become to forgiveness from your Lord. What genetic alto has somehow to an arm and a garden which is as wide as the heavens and the earth. But who is that place for? That little with the pain prepared for the righteous, so don't go lazy Lee but rush to Allah. you exert so much of your life over the little houses in the world. Don't sell yourself short. Don't
settle with less rush to what is better. Remember, Jana is vast, Jenna is prepared for the mood, the pain. how vast is Jana? We learn in a Hadees that the distance between two shutters of the gate of Jana is 40 years. So imagine if a gate of Jana is so huge. What do you think about what is inside? Who is this Jenna for? How do you get there? How can you get entry into Jenna? It is for a Latina Yun Fukunaga is a ra he was the RA he, those who spend in the cause of Allah when during ease and during hardship, spending for the pleasure of Allah is mentioned over here. The first thing is the first quality that is mentioned is Yun feel Kuhn that they spend, because the love for wealth is
intense in people. And when a person spends for the sake of Allah, it really shows their love for Allah is greater than the love of things. You see, there are people whom Allah subhanaw taala has given a lot to so if they give a lot, you're not surprised. All right. And then there are those who have very little, and you don't expect them to spend anything. And that is also okay. But those who are in the middle, meaning they're hopeful of increasing their wealth, and they're afraid of financial decline if they spend this person spending is the best, because they're between hope and fear. And they put their trust in Allah. And then they spend, they put their desire their own, you
know, their own pleasure, at risk, meaning they sacrifice their own desire, and they give preference to Allah subhanaw taala. And this is a proof of a truly generous person that they spend in ease and in hardship, that they're focused on giving, regardless of what their own circumstances are. So they give in a looser and looser when things are easy. And when things are hard, when they have little, when they fear shortage for themselves when they don't know how things will be in the near future, but they still give for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm advised a smell or de la Mourinho led to read for you A Allahu our Lake, do not be retentive. Do not
be greedy that you keep counting your own
money and you keep it safe in your wallet. Don't do that. Because then Allah subhanaw taala will treat you in the same way. Italy must authority spend as much as you can. So remember, generosity is a habit. stinginess is a habit. So those who are generous in good times, they can also be generous in hard times, while Cal liminal hails, and those who suppress their anger while our feanor and Ines and their pardon people will love who you have been more sinning, and Allah loves the doers of good. Jana is for such people who, those who discipline their desire, their ego, their anger, the fact is that everyone gets angry. Cat lemina are those whose hearts get filled with anger, but they exert
tight control over it, just like a bottle is full to the brim, you seal the mouth, you don't let the water spill out. And just like that, when the anger is bubbling inside kalama is to keep tight control over to not let it explode. And when a person is not able to control their anger, then this is a sign of their spiritual and emotional weakness. It can even be an illness, because remember, uncontrolled anger has a very negative impact on a person's physical health, on their mental health, on their relationships, also, suppressing anger kaleena lave This doesn't mean that a person is not allowed to express themselves. suppressing anger means not expressing oneself in an aggressive way.
Because remember, there are always better ways of communicating. suppressing anger means finding a healthier and a more effective way to express yourself without losing control. And this requires a lot of effort. And those who exert this effort, Allah subhanaw taala loves such people will love who you are hibel Merci, Nein. We don't in a Hadees that whoever suppresses their anger, even though if they wanted, they could have acted on it, meaning they could have shown their anger they could have acted on that anger, but they suppress it. Then Allah will fill their heart with hopes on the Day of Judgment, meaning on the Day of Judgment, when people will be afraid such a person will be calm. A
man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed me of a deed which will lead me to Jenna and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Do not get angry. And for you as Jenna la de la wellacre Jana will Latina either far lufa Hey schatten, Allah more amphastar home, the Corolla. And those who, when they commit and immorality are wrong themselves, the more sinning are not perfect. They're human. So they do make mistakes. So when they make those mistakes, what do they do? They remember Allah, and then they seek forgiveness for their sins, they fix the damage that they have caused, and who can forgive sins except Allah, and who do not persist in what they have done while
they know. Meaning they don't knowingly persist. They learn from their mistakes. And when they realize their mistake, they do something, they try different things in order to avoid making the same mistake again. So they work on changing themselves. And this is so encouraging. The problem is that when we do something wrong, shape plan makes us believe that will never be forgiven, that we're a lost cause that we can never get better, that we are just bad. And then what happens is that we don't work on improving ourselves. We must start believing in the good that Allah subhanaw taala has put inside of us, the good inside of us the ability to heal the ability to improve the ability to
get better. The thing is that the brain and it's something amazing, right? neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to adapt and change. We're not hard wired to fixed patterns, the brains nature is such that it can be changed, our behaviors are changeable, our bad habits can be broken. So why give up on yourself so quickly? Remember that Iblees shaitan said to Allah subhanaw taala that by your might and Your Honor, I will continue to mislead the children of Adam, as long as their souls are in them. And you know what Allah subhanaw taala said, Allah subhanaw taala said by my might and my honor, I will continue to forgive them as long as they seek forgiveness of me. So keep seeking
forgiveness and do not feel bad because in another head these we learn a loss Panthera says, All son of Adam, I shall go on forgiving you so long as you pray to me and seek my forgive.
This, whatever may be your sins, all son of Adam, I do not care if your sins should pile up to the sky. Imagine so many sins, that they reach up to the clouds. And even then, if you should beg pardon of me, I will forgive you. I do not mind, lamb belly, or son of Adam. If you come to me with an earth full of sins, imagine the whole world. Imagine committing that many sins, and then you meet me, not associating anything with me in worship, I will certainly grant you as much pardon as will fill the earth. Allah subhanaw taala has mercy and forgiveness is greater than our sins. So never lose hope. No matter what you have done, remind yourself I can improve. I can get better. And yes,
not in one day. Not in one week. It will take many tries, but I have to keep trying. hula eeka Jessa Omar Farah to Milla be him. Those their reward is forgiveness from their Lord and gardens beneath which rivers flow meaning in Jenna, wherein they will abide eternally and excellent is the reward of the righteous, similar situations as yours have passed on before you know warning is being given to the enemy to the to the mushrikeen, who came to fight the Muslims. So proceed throughout the earth and observe how was the end of those who denied this Quran is a clear statement to all the people and the guidance and instruction for those conscious of Allah will after he know. So do not weaken
while at the zoo, and do not grieve what until are alone and you will be superior, you will be successful when in control would mean even if you are true believers, you see the Sahaba had made such a huge mistake. They had experienced such a huge setback. And the same thing happens in our lives. Also, everything is not always easy. There are times when you're not able to do what you believed you could what you thought you could do, you fail a course you get fired, you don't meet your goals. And this can be very upsetting. You begin to doubt yourself, you begin to wonder what is wrong with you. Remember, these setbacks do not mean that you have fallen in the eyes of God, that
you are now a bad person, that you're no longer worthy. These setbacks do not mean that you're a loser, that you'll never get more opportunities in the future that this was your last chance, no things change. So let me know let us know what until are alone. Look forward to the future. You will be superior Allah will give you success, but you have to believe you have to believe em says come around, if a wound should touch you, because remember, the Muslims had 70 casual they had 70 casualties in this battle.
If a wound should touch you, there has already touched the opposing people a wound that is similar to it at brother. The machine also lost 70 people and these days of varying conditions. We alternate among the people, meaning things don't always remain the same for everyone. Why? So that Allah may make evident those who believe and may take to himself from among you martyrs, and Allah does not like the wrongdoers. Well uma has Allah who levena amanu William Heckle Catherine and that Allah May purify the believers and destroy the disbelievers. So the thing is, that trials, purify a person trials prepare a person for bigger challenges, trials Polish a person, they build his capacity,
build his stamina, because the person who is not able to bear little things with patients, then they cannot handle bigger things either. The higher you want to go, the greater hardships you have to bear. So when Allah subhanaw taala makes you go through some hardship. It is not to torture you. It is just to make you stronger, because there's something much better that is coming ahead. Um, has a button Enter the Hello Jana, or do you think that you will enter paradise?

and you had certainly wished for martyrdom before you encountered it. And you have now seen it before you while you were looking on many companions wished for Shahada before the Battle of or heard, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not but a messenger. Other messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die, or be killed, would you turn back on your head?
To unbelief, at the Battle of or hurt, or rumors spread about the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we learned that many companions felt weak in their hearts, they felt really faint in their heart at that time and thought, why should we bother to continue? So Allah subhanaw taala reminds them that if he's to die, or to be killed, are you going to turn back on your heels? Are you going to go back to your former ways? Are you just going to quit? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all, but Allah who will reward the Grateful so we all need to check ourselves? Why is it that we're really striving in our lives, for whose sake is it for the
sake of a person? Is it for the sake of a material goal? If that is the case, then our striving, our struggle, our efforts will be momentary. If our goal is Allah subhanaw taala. If our eventual any goal and purpose is to please Allah subhanaw taala then we will go on and continue until the very end of our lives. Wilma cannoli, nevsun untar motor, elaborate Neela and it is not possible for one to die except by the permission of Allah at a decree determined and whoever desires the reward of this world, we will give him their off and whoever desires the reward of the Hereafter, we will give him their off, and we will reward the Grateful and how many a prophet fought and with him fought
many religious scholars, but they never lost assurance due to what afflicted them in the cause of Allah. Their hearts did not break, nor did they weaken or submit. They did not quit. And Allah loves the steadfast notice how shackling are mentioned over here saw bidding are mentioned over here. And their words were not but that they said our Lord, forgive us our sins and the excess committed in our affairs and plant firmly our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people. Notice how Allah Subhana Allah mentions that there were so many there were Ruby, unica theory of great numbers, yet they did not rely upon themselves. They relied upon Allah subhanaw taala and they combined
patients with is the fall. This is how we face difficult situations in life, that on the one hand, we observe patients, we do not give up no matter what happens. And on the other hand, we also beg Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness. So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the good reward of the hereafter. And Allah loves the doers of good.
Yeah, a U haul. levina amanu all you who have believed, if you obey those who disbelieve, they will turn you back on your heels and you will then become losers. But Allah is your protector, and he is the best of helpers, we will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah, of which he had not sent down any authority and their refuge will be the fire and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers. So we see in this ayah that schilke associating partners with Allah is something that weakens a person, it brings fear in their life, it removes blessing from their life. So learn to purify your faith in Allah, learn to purify your reliance upon
Allah subhanaw taala that you only rely on him, expect from him, fear him seek Him.
And Allah had certainly fulfilled his promise to you, when you were killing the enemy by his permission, meaning at the beginning of the battle, you Muslims were certainly victorious by the help of Allah, until when you lost courage, and fell to disputing about the order and disobeyed after he had shown you that what you love among your some who desire this world and among your some who desire the Hereafter, then he turned you back from them defeated, that he might test you and he has already forgiven you. And Allah is the possessor of bounty for the believers. Remember, when you fled and climbed the mountain without looking aside at anyone while the messenger was calling you
from behind? So Allah repaid you with distress upon distress. Why? So you would not grieve for that which had escaped you or for that which had befallen you, and Allah is acquainted with what you do.
So the main thing is that Allah subhanaw taala does not want us to grieve over worldly loss. The reality of this world is that it is not meant to stay forever. And if a person keeps grieving and yearning for what has gone, they cannot appreciate and make use of what they have.
The nature of this world is such that every single moment we are losing something, right, every single moment, we are losing for instance time, but at the same moment we are also receiving Allah subhanaw taala is constantly replacing what we are losing with something else, something better. So if we only focus on what has gone, we will be sad and grieved. We need to focus on what is coming, what we are receiving. Now, of course, grief and sadness, this is something natural, it is real, but too much of it can be debilitating. It can weaken a person and this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would frequently make the raw Allahumma in the road to becoming a lamb he will
hasn't will rGz well castle will do bunny will bowl will bowler it then he will holla but a region that Allah I seek her I seek refuge in You from worry and grief and hum while hasn't. So when you lose something, say other Allah wa Masha afar This was Allah decree whenever Allah wanted has happened, and then bring yourself together and try to move forward. Then after distress, he sent down upon your security in the form of drowsiness. Subhan, Allah, you see sleep after an episode of stress is very much needed.
And this is the same thing that happened with the Muslims. after enduring all of that difficulty at the Battle of a herd, they actually felt drowsy, some of them fell asleep, overcoming a faction of you, while another faction worried about themselves, meaning they just couldn't relax. Why thinking of Allah other than the truth, the thought of ignorance, saying, Is there anything for us to have done in this matter? These were the hypocrites thinking negative thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala say, indeed the matter belongs completely to Allah. It's not about what we want. It's about what Allah decides. They conceal within themselves, what they will not reveal to you. They say, if there
was anything we could have done in the matter, some of us would not have been killed right here. Say, even if you had been inside your houses, those decreed to be killed would have come out to their deathbeds. It was so that Allah my test what is in your chests and purify what is in your hearts and Allah is Knowing of that within the chests in alladhina, toe Holloman calm, yo multiple gem Iran. Indeed, those of you who turned back on the day the two armies met. Why is it that the hypocrites left it was shaped on who caused them to slip because of some blame they had earned. Or this is referring to the one lomenzo meaning those Muslims who turned away from their places with
the prophets of Allah who were who sent him had appointed them on why did they move? Why did they end up disobeying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam shaitan caused them to slip because of some blame they had earned. So remember, it is because of our own weaknesses, our own sins, because of which a THON gets the better of us. But Allah has already forgiven them. So don't talk bad about the companions. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and forbearing Yeah, uh, you Halina amanu all you will have believed, do not let all you who have believed, do not be like those who disbelieved and said about their brothers, when they're travelled through the land or went out to fight. If they had been with
us, they would not have died or have been killed. So Allah makes that a regret within their chests. And it is Allah who gives life and causes death, and Allah is seeing of what you do. So we should not say such things that you know, oh, if I had not done such and such, then I wouldn't have suffered this loss. No, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said be keen on what benefits you and seek help from Allah and do not give up and if anything afflicts you do not say Lo, if I had done such and such, then such and such would not have happened. rather say other Allah, wa Masha foreign because saying lo is something that opens the door for shaytaan. So don't welcome shade on
and if you were killed in the cause of Allah or die, then forgiveness from Allah and mercy are better than whatever they accumulate. And whether you die or are killed unto Allah, you will be gathered. This is such an excellent way to dispel anxiety. You know, when you're feeling very anxious, ask yourself okay, what's the worst thing that will happen? bring to mind all of your worries and concerns and ask yourself okay, then what? Then what will happen? Okay, then what will happen?
What's the worst thing I'll die? Okay, that is going to happen anyway, we're all going to die anyway. So process your fears, don't avoid them for the Moto Moto, minella, healing tele home, so by mercy from Allah or messenger, you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah. Indeed, Allah loves those who rely upon him. Allah subhanaw taala especially bless the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with leniency and softness with gentleness. And this gentleness is very, very important for a
good leader. For the person who calls people to Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, gentleness is not an anything except that it makes it beautiful. Even within a household within the family, gentleness is essential. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, no people of a house are given gentleness except that it will benefit them. And no people of a house are deprived of gentleness except that it will harm them. So we see that people who are not gentle people who are not easy going with one another, they suffer, they suffer themselves, and they also cause others to suffer. So don't just wait for people to be gentle with you. First, you initiate the
gentleness, Ian sort of como la who Fela Holly Bella calm. If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you. But if he should forsake you, who was there that can aid you after him? And upon Allah let the believers rely. So ask him for help. It is not attributable to any prophet that he should act on faithfully in regard to war booty, and whoever betrays taking unlawfully will come with what he took on the Day of Resurrection, then will every soul be fully compensated for what it earned, and they will not be wronged? So is one who pursues the pleasure of Allah, like one who brings upon himself the anger of Allah, and whose refuges hell, and wretched is the destination using these
people are the same? No, there are varying degrees in the sight of Allah. And Allah is seeing of whatever they do. Local demand Allah who are a little more meaning, certainly did Allah confer great favor upon the believers, when he sent among them a messenger from themselves, reciting to them his verses, and purifying them, and teaching them the book and wisdom, although they had been before it in manifest error, Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't just impart knowledge. He didn't just recite the Quran, he also purified the people use a key him. So with Darlene, does gear purification, growth is very important. Remember, sacred knowledge is not just
for the sake of information. We don't just study sacred knowledge in order to increase in our information. No, it is for the purpose of improvement, so that we purify ourselves, our character, our behavior, our lives.
Why is it that when a single disaster struck you, this was on the day of or hurt, although you had struck the enemy, previously in the Battle of button, with something twice as great, you said, from where is this? The Muslims were shocked at the Battle of Earth? That How did this happen? Say it is from yourselves. Indeed, Allah is over all things competence. And what struck you on the day of the two? And what struck you on the day the two armies met was by permission of Allah, that he might make evident, the true believers? You see, sometimes you wonder that I am trying to do something good. Why is it so hard for me? So remember, the hardship that you're facing is by the permission of
Allah, it is not random. It was selected for you, not to destroy you, but to improve you to make you better than before. Well, he Allah Molina now for who and that he might make evident those who are hypocrites, for it was set to them come fight in the way of Allah, or at least defend. They said, if we had known there would be fighting, we would have followed you what a lie. You see the hypocrites. They tried to deceive the Muslims and at the Battle of or hurt, the hypocrites were exposed because a friend in need is a friend. Indeed, they they abandoned the Muslims. So it was made very clear that these people are not sincere to you. They were nearer to disbelief that day than to faith
saying with their mouths, what was not in their heart.
And Allah is most knowing of what they conceal.
Those who said about their brothers while sitting at home, if they had obeyed us they would not have been killed. Say, then prevent death from yourselves if you should be truthful when at the Savannah Latina coti, rofi Sabina Allah He um water and never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead, rather they are alive with their Lord receiving provision.
One of the first things we feel for someone who has died is pity that Oh, they never got to see this. They never got to experience that you know they missed out. And Allah subhanaw taala tells us that the person who dies in his way is not missing out. Because the Shaheed the martyr, is given provision, sustenance and reward in the life of barza even before they enter Jannah before the Day of Judgment for the hanaa Bhima atta Humala home and fugly rejoicing in what Allah has bestowed upon them of his bounty, and they received good tidings about those after them who have not yet joined them, that there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve their rejoice. They received
good tidings of favor from Allah, and bounty and of the fact that Allah does not allow the reward of believers to be lost. And loneliness, the jab Buddha he was sold, those believers who responded to Allah and the messenger after injury had struck them. This is so beautiful for those who did good among them and feared Allah is a great reward. You see, right after the Battle of her when the Muslims returned to Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam feared that the Messiah came the enemy would return and try to attack the Muslims again. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam decided that the Muslims should go and pursue the enemy and face them outside. So the Muslims who
were injured, who had barely recovered from the Battle of boyhood, when they were asked to go face the enemy to go pursue the enemy, they got up and they went, they were physically and emotionally wounded. They were tired, but still, they went in obedience to Allah and His messenger. So Allah says, Those who do Hassan and sometimes it happens, that you know, you are exhausted from one fast and then you have to fast again the next day. You are tired from your fast and then you have to do pm. So yes, this is tiring. But remember, those who do ersan those who fear Allah, Allah has a huge reward for them. those to whom Hippocrates said, Indeed, the people have gathered against you, so
fear them, but it merely increased them in faith, and they said has been a law sufficient for us is Allah, meaning Allah alone is enough for us. Even if all odds are against us. Allah is enough, because Allah is all powerful. And he is when they're men were killed the best Disposer of affairs, meaning he is the best one to rely upon these words, has been Allah who an airman were key. They're very powerful. And when things got really hard, we should also say the same words, Ibrahim alayhis. Salam also said these words, when he was thrown in the fire by his people, difficult things will become easy, when we say has been Allah. So what happened, they returned with favor from Allah,
meaning with victory and bounty, no harm having touched them, and they pursued the pleasure of Allah and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. And so this turned their defeat back into victory, because Medina was defended. The enemy did not pursue the Muslims with the Muslims pursued them. So we see that another test after a setback allows you to mend your situation, to fix your mistake. So we see over here, look that the companions, they received for rewards of tawakkol, of relying upon Allah subhanaw taala of not quitting, and what are these four rewards? nerima Allah is blessing, and that was victory fuddle more more favor. And that was the treaties of peace that they had made
safety and also the robot Allah approval, that is only shaped pawn who frightens you of his supporters, so fear them not, but fear me, if you are indeed believers, and do not be grieved by those who hasten into disbelief, indeed, they will never harm Allah at all. Allah intends that he should give them no share in the Hereafter, and for them is a great punishment. Indeed, those who purchase disbelief in exchange for faith, never will they harm Allah at all. And for
them is a painful punishment. And let not those who disbelieve ever think that because we extend their time of enjoyment in it is better for them.
And let not those who disbelieve ever think that because we extend their time of enjoyment, it is better for them. We only extend it for them so that they may increase in sin, and for them is a humiliating punishment. McCann Allah julio de la mina, allameh, and tumor LA, Allah would not leave the believers in that state you are in meaning things are not always going to remain the same. They will be turned upside down, you will be tested and tried until he separates the evil from the good, nor would Allah reveal to you the unseen, but instead, Allah chooses of his messengers whom He wills, so believe in Allah and His messengers. And if you believe and fear Him, then for you is a
great reward. And let not those who greedily withhold what Allah has given them of his bounty, ever think that it is better for them. Rather, it is worse for them, their necks will be encircled by what they withheld on the Day of Judgment. And this is the punishment of not giving a cat that that wealth that property will be will be wound around the neck of the person and to Allah belongs to the heritage of the heavens and the earth. And Allah with what you do, is fully acquainted. Allah has certainly heard the statement of those who said, Indeed, Allah is poor, while we are rich, Subhan Allah, when Allah says in the Quran, that who will give to Allah a goodly loan, some people, you
know, they market this, and they did. And they marked at this at the time of the Prophet sallallahu radiosonde them as well. Then why is Allah asking for a loan? Is he poor, we are rich. And they said this only to mark Allah says he has heard such people look at the summit Allah, Allah asks us to spend on his religion, not because he is in need, but to give us an opportunity, we will record what they said, and their killing of the prophets without right and we will say, and we will say, taste the punishment of the burning fire. That is for what your hands have put forth. And because Allah is not ever unjust to his servants, there are those who said, Indeed, Allah has taken our promise not
to believe any messenger until he brings us an offering, which fire from heaven will consume. Say, there have already come to you messengers before me with clear proofs, and even that of which you speak. So why did you kill them, if you should be truthful? Meaning these are all excuses, then if they deny you, so we're messengers denied before you who brought clear proofs and written ordinances and the enlightening scripture, called Luna Syndra ecotel mode, every soul will taste death. And you will only be given your full compensation on the Day of Resurrection, not now, but in the hereafter. So he who was drawn away from the fire, and admitted to paradise has attained his desire, meaning
such a person is successful, and what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion? So the person who thinks that this life and it's things are everything is truly deceived, they're mis directed, they've got it all wrong, and those who've got it, right, those who are not deceived, or those who focus on what is to come after death, meaning the hereafter so they prepare for it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Indeed, the space in Paradise, which is taken up by a whip, a whip is like a belt. something so small, a place an area that is so small, that area in general, is better than the world and whatever that is in it. Recite if you wish femen zorzi. Heron
and now what are the hidden agenda for codifies woman higher to dunya Illa matar who wrote a
letter Willa winavi, unworldly, calm what unfussy calm, you will surely be tested in your possessions and in yourselves. And you will surely hear from those who are given the Scripture before you and from those who associate others with Allah, much abuse. So be prepared, this will happen. But if you are patient and fear Allah again sobre entocort are mentioned. Indeed, that is of the matters worthy of determination. And a person who has determination is able to do something only they are able to reach higher levels. So Allah subhanaw taala has informed us over here, let Tableau one now you will be tested, so be ready. And the fact is that everyone is tested, so be prepared for
hardship. Life is not going to be a bed of roses, there will be obstacles.
And never think that you're having it worse, that all problems are for you that somehow you're the only one who attracts to tribulation. No, everyone is tested. Because what happens is that sometimes in self pity, we begin to think that our tests are the most difficult, and that perhaps Allah subhanaw taala is being unfair to us. That is not the case. The fact is that everyone is being tested because this life is supposed to be for a test, because we become biased. This is why we see our problems as the worst and other problem and other people's problems as if they're nothing. The Prophet sallallahu raisonne was asked which people are tested the most severely, he said, the
prophets and the righteous and then the next best meaning according to their level, and he said, a person is tested according to the level of his religion. If there strengthen his religion, his trial is increased. And if there is weakness in his religion than his trial is lightened. In other Hadees we learn that a believing men and believing woman is tested in their body wealth or children continuously, so that when they meet Allah, there is no sin left on them. Subhan Allah, this is why, no matter what the test is, we should never be upset with Allah, because from an earlier fella who liberal, whoever is pleased, then he will get Allah's approval woman cellular fella who salt and
whoever gets upset with Allah, then he will find Allah upset as well. And mention a prophet when Allah took a covenant from those who are given the Scripture saying, you must make it clear to the people and not conceal it. But they threw it away behind their backs and exchanged it for a small price, and wretched is that which they purchased, and never think that those who rejoice in what they have perpetrated and like to be praised for what they did not do. They haven't done anything, yet they want to be praised. They want the rewards, never think them to be in safety from the punishment, and for them is a painful punishment will allow him will cause some are worth he will
own and to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is over all things competent, he is capable of all things. And now the last verses of Surah Al Imran begin. And these verses, were very dear to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam the night that these verses were revealed upon him, he wept so much he got up he prayed, and he wept so much that the ground on which he did such the became wet. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said about these verses that woe to the one who recites them, but does not reflect upon them. In another Hadees, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu, earlier Sunnah would recite these verses, on waking up at the time of
the hedgehog. So this is something that we should also do. What are these verses in nephew hope is somehow it will, indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of the night and the day are Signs for those of understanding. So we should reflect on how there was nothing, and Allah created at all. And how Allah subhanaw taala changes the night into the day and the day into the night, we should learn that Allah subhanaw taala can bring things from where we cannot even imagine. He can make what was not. And he can change things in the most subtle way. So trust him, Have faith in Him, who are those of intellect, there are those who remember Allah while
standing or sitting or lying on their sides, and they give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth. And they say, Our Lord, you did not create this aimlessly Exalted are You then protect us from the punishment of the Fire. So we see over here, that victory is mentioned that there are those who remember Allah. And they remember Allah while sitting, standing, laying down hinny all the time, they remember Allah and they contemplate they reflect over the creation. So Vicar is mentioned before figured before difficult because for guidance, intelligence alone is not enough. The light of Allah Vicar is also needed. Under that was asked, how was a Buddha? And she
said that he would mostly be occupied with contemplation with difficulty he would reflect a lot and she was asked what do you think? Is contemplation even an action? She said yes, it is a deed through which one acquires conviction, meaning it is a process
through which you develop your pain, you need to think and contemplate. This is why even erlin said that reflection, removes heedlessness and produces the fear of Allah in the heart, just as water irrigates land and prepares it for growth. So if we want to do something, if we want to be obedient righteous servants of Allah, we need the fear of Allah first. So how do we develop that? How is it that we water our hearts with contemplation? They say, Our Lord, indeed whoever you admit to the fire, you have disgraced him and for the wrongdoers, there are no helpers they realize that the real humiliation is an entering hell, our Lord, indeed we have heard a caller calling to faith saying,
believe in your Lord, and we have believed our Lord. So forgive us our sins are a burner folfiri Lennar, no no burner, worker feeder, anessa Tina, and remove from us our misdeeds, what are phenomenal abroad, and causes to die with the righteous little burner, our Lord, and grant us what you promised us through your messengers, and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, you do not feel in your promise. Notice so many doors are mentioned over here. And they all begin with a burner or a burner burner, our Lord. And so Allah says first the jab Allahumma boom. And their Lord responded to them. A Buddha that said, may Allah have mercy on the believers, they keep
saying robina robina until their their hours are accepted. So we should also make Dora in the same manner. When you call upon Allah, call upon my singular burner or be my rub our Lord call upon him. This is a way of having your dog answered. There is such a beautiful Hades in which we learn that a man committed a sin and said, Rob, be my Lord, I have committed a sin Please forgive me. So his Lord said my slave knows that he has a lord who forgive sins and punish us for it. So I have forgiven my slave and then the servant again after some time committed a sin, a sin and said, Rob, be my Lord, I have committed another sin Please forgive me. So unless panel tada forgives him, again, a person,
the same person commits a sin and says it'll be my Lord, I have committed another sin, please forgive me. And Allah says my slave knows that he has a lord who forgives sins and punishes for it. Therefore, I have forgiven my slave, I have forgiven my slave. So we should also make the line the same manner, but I'll be my Rob. And these drawers that are inserted earlier Man, these verses these are accepted durrells because Allah says first the jab Allah whom Allah responded to them, these are other already accepted. So we should make them what is the response that Allah gave, Never will I allow to be lost the reward of any worker among you, whether male or female eating, there's no
gender discrimination, you are of one another. So those who emigrated or were evicted from their homes, or were harmed in my cars, or fought or were killed, I will surely remove from them their misdeeds. And I will surely admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow as reward from Allah, and Allah has with him the best reward. So those who believe and bear hardship in Allah zwei, they don't give up, they don't quit, then Allah subhanaw taala will reward them so generously, Be not deceived by the uninhibited movement of the disbelievers throughout the land, meaning those people who move about in the world in their freedom, despite their disbelief, and since never, ever think
that this is a sign of their success. No, just because a person has an easy life. It doesn't mean that they're successful. Why Mataram khaleel it is a small enjoyment, and remember, enjoyment that his little his little than their final refuges, hell, and wretched is the resting place.
So remember, the real life is of the Hereafter, not of this world, but those who feared their Lord will have gardens beneath which rivers flow abiding, eternally daring, as a commendation from Allah, and that which is with Allah is best for the righteous. And indeed, among the People of the Scripture are those who believe in Allah and what was revealed to you and what was revealed to them being humbly submissive to Allah. They do not exchange the verses of Allah for a small price. Those will have their reward with their Lord. Indeed, Allah is swift in account. Yeah, uh, you Hello, Dina amanu. All you will have believed is spirou. Be patient. Don't give up. Be strong. Be patient.
Be patient, be persistent. While saburo and endure meaning encourage one another to be patient. compete in patience and be patient in facing challenges. Don't give up what are beautiful and remain stationed for good work. Stay put, remain steadfast, keep connected, stay together with the color and fear Allah Laura lecanto fle hoon. In order that you may be successful, we see again sobor and the core are mentioned so many times suburban core mentioned together in the sutra. Why? Because these are keys to success, Southern over what is painful, because life is not easy. Things are not always going to be what you expect them to be or what you want them to be, you will be disappointed,
you will be surprised. So you must have suburb and then toccoa. The core, meaning remain firm over obedience even in painful situations. Both are necessary. It's not either or, but both. You see some people they only have the core, they don't have Sabra, for example, they will fulfill their obligations, such as they will perform Salah they will leave what is unlawful, but when they fall ill when they're tested in their wealth, they lose it. They don't have patients over there. Some people only have suburbs, and they don't have the core. For example, they'll be very courageous in the face of hardship, but they don't fulfill their duty towards Allah. And then there are some who
neither have suburb North Dakota, in Santa Julio kahaluu either Mr. Sherwood azura as Allah says in certain Vantage, so we have to develop both suburb and Tacoma. How start practicing one thing at a time. And one of the most effective ways of building suburb call is Salah, Salah. start focusing on your prayer, be consistent with your prayers. Just pick up Salah one thing and focus on it and you will notice your strength, improving your capacity increasing your tolerance, your endurance it will build. So focus on Salah, start practicing it regularly. Don't neglect it, and you will increase in your sub antiqua
Sula, Tony sir Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. Yeah, a urinal suta Pura back home, all mankind, fear your Lord, have the core of your Lord, who is your Lord who created you from one soul and created from its mate and dispersed from both of them Adam and However, many men and women and fear Allah again, what duckula through whom you ask one another, and the wounds, Indeed Allah is Ever over you an observer. Remember the suta was revealed after the Battle of boyhood. And in the Battle of Earth, many Muslims were martyred. And so there were now so many households where there were widows, there were orphans. So there are many verses in the suta which are related to the rights of the weak, the
people who are often neglected in the society and the surah begins with the instruction to observe the core, have the core have fear of Allah, be conscious of Allah. Why? Because when there is the core, the only then will a person do right? Then they will fear Allah and not commit oppression. Then there will be social justice, then the week will be cared for. When murottal de la Mourinho was being sent to Yemen, as a leader of the people over there. He asked a messenger of Allah advise me and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, are they Kavita cola must have thought you must have the koala as much as you are able, meaning to the best of your capacity, Fear Allah. And then
the Prophet sallallahu already said I'm also advised another man will seek a better koala, for inner who, secondly Shea that you must have the core of Allah because it is the foundation it is the basis of everything.
What are toliet hammer and wila home and give to the orphans their properties and do not substitute the defective of your own for the good of theirs. Meaning don't take their good things and give them your bad things and do not consume their properties into your own. Indeed, that is ever a great sin. So who can abstain from this the person who has the
taking guardianship of an orphan is something very virtuous, very, very rewarding. rewardable provided that a person observes the fear of Allah, we learn in a Hadees the guardian of the orphan, whether the orphan is his own or someone else's will be with me in general like this, as long as he fears Allah and Mr. Malik, when he inherited this Hardee's he joined his two fingers together. So, taking care of the orphan, whether it is your own So for example, if a man die
Leaving a five year old child and now that the mother is left to raise the child on her own, she also comes in this, if she raises a child with the color of Allah, or if the grandparents, for example, raise their orphan grandchildren with the taqwa of Allah, that they will be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you have other women two or three or four. And this is a permission that is being given what certain conditions and what are those conditions. But if you fear that you will not be just meaning between your wives, then marry only one or those your right
hands possess that is more suitable that you may not inclined to injustice. You see, this teaches us that if a person fears that they may not be able to be just in a certain situation, that they might not be fair, or that they might not be able to do something properly, then they should stay away. Even if it is something permissible, even if it is something rewardable stay away half the core of Allah and only take on what you know, you can handle and give the women upon marriage, their bridal gifts graciously, meaning give them a hug. Happily, this is an obligation. But if they give up willingly to you anything of it, then take it in satisfaction and ease, but don't force them to give
it up. And this is unfortunately so common in so many Muslim societies where women are not given their money. And they're told big amounts at the time of marriage, but they're never given their money. In a Hadees we learned that whichever man marries a woman over him or her whether it was smaller, big, but in his heart is no intention to give her that model and he dies in that state without giving her her right, then he will meet Allah on the day of judgment as a fornicator. This is something that should be taken very seriously. We'll have to suffer her unwelcome and do not give the weak minded your property. Meaning when the last panel God has given you wealth, then don't give
it to those who don't know how to manage it, who don't know how to look after it, because then your wealth will get wasted. What is wealth, wealth is something important. Allah has made a means of sustenance for you, you need it, but provide for them with it and clothe them and speak to them words of appropriate kindness. So neither be tight fisted with them nor be careless. Be responsible. When it comes to money. We're better lulea Tama and test the orphans meaning in their abilities until they reach marriageable age, then if you perceive and them sound judgment, then release their property to them, and do not consume it excessively and quickly, anticipating that they will grow up
and whoever is self sufficient should refrain, meaning whoever is acting as a guardian of an orphan should refrain from taking from the wealth of the orphan, if he has enough money, if he is self sufficient, but if he's poor, Allah subhanaw taala says, woman can affect Iran and whoever is poor, then let him take according to what is acceptable, he can charge a fee but moderately than when you release their property to them, bring witnesses upon them, and sufficient is Allah as accountant Lily jolliness label me methodical worthy Danny will occur a boon willingly sir in a stable mathematical world and he will occur a boon for men is a share of what the parents and close
relatives leave and for women is also a share of what the parents and close relatives leave, meaning men get to inherit. And women also have rights of inheritance via little or much, regardless of how much the estate is, and how big or small the shares become. Women are legal heirs, just as men are legal heirs, no sleep, I'm a frugal and obligatory share. What either How about this matter, and when other relatives and orphans and the needy are present at the time of division, than provide for them and speak to them words of appropriate kindness, meaning when an estate has been divided amongst the legal heirs, and some other people come up, some other people show up. And even though
they don't have a legal share, still give them something. And if you cannot give them something that at least speak to them nicely. So when someone comes to you, expecting that you will give them something, then don't leave, don't send them away. Don't reject them, give them something, acknowledge them, even if it's just a smile, even if it's just a good word, but give them something don't hurt them, and don't disappoint them. And let those executrix and guardians fear injustice, as if they themselves had left
Weak offspring behind and feared for them. So let them fear Allah and speak words of appropriate justice, meaning put yourself in that situation, how would you want your children to be treated after your death. So when, when you're dealing with orphans, deal with them the way you would want your children to be treated after you. Indeed, those who devour the property of orphans unjustly are only consuming into their bellies fire, and they will be burned in a blaze. Now the law of inheritance as mentioned, Alliance trucks you concerning your children, for the male, what is equal to the share of two females. Remember that when it comes to the law of inheritance, then these
shares are appointed by Allah subhanaw taala. So this means that no person is allowed to modify them. And if Allah subhanaw taala has appointed these chairs, then these chairs are perfect. They are based on his wisdom on his perfect justice. So why is it that the male has the share of two females, because remember, financial burden, financial responsibility rests on the shoulders of men, they're obligated to spend on their dependence, they're obligated to give her to the wife on getting married, and enough aka meaning spending on her and the family all lifelong. And inheritance is the only time that men actually received something for free. So this is why the share of the son is
twice as that of the daughter, because what is the son going to do with his share? He has to spend it on his dependence. Now, what about the daughter? What about the woman she can do whatever she wants with her money, but the man is obligated to spend it on his family. Remember, even if a woman is a millionaire, she's not required to spend on her husband and her children, and a man must spend on his wife on his children. This is a religious obligation on him. So a woman is never obligated to spend on others, but a man must spend on his family, he must. So the poor guy only receives something at the time of inheritance.
But if there are only daughters, two or more for them is two thirds of one's estate. And if there's only one for her is half, and for one's parents, to each one of them, mother or father is a sixth of his estate if he left children, but if he had no children, and the parents alone inherit from him, then for his mother is a third. And if he had brothers or sisters, for his mother, as a sixth, after any bequest, he may have made or debt, your parents or your children, you know not which of them are nearest to you and benefit. These chairs are an obligation imposed by Allah. Indeed, Allah is Ever knowing and wise, so do not object at this, at this, this division, be pleased with it, because
Allah subhanaw taala knows you do not know and for you is half of what your wives leave, if they have no child, but if they have a child, for you is 1/4 of what they leave, after any bequest they may have made or debt, and for the wives is 1/4 if you leave no child, but if you leave a child, then for them as an eighth of what you leave, after any bequest, you may have made or debt, and if a man or woman leaves neither ascendance nor descendants, but has a brother or sister than for each of them is a sixth, but if they are more than two, they share a third after any request which was made or debt. This is an ordinance from Allah and Allah is Knowing and forbearing. So remember,
inheritance is only to be divided after fulfilling the request, as long as the request the will the will see is not unjust, and the loans have also been paid off. Till Corrado, the law. These are the limits set by Allah And whoever obeys Allah and His messenger will be admitted by him to gardens and paradise under which rivers flow abiding eternally they're in and that is the great attainment. And whoever disobeys Allah and His messenger and transgresses his limits, he will put him into the fire to abide eternally, they're in and he will have a humiliating punishment. Those who commit unlawful sexual intercourse of your women bring against them four witnesses from among you, who have actually
witnessed the act, and if they testify, confined the guilty women to houses until death overtakes them, or Allah ordains for them another way, and if there are no witnesses, then they're innocent until proven guilty. And the two men and the two who commit it meaning Zinner among you, dishonor them both, but if they repent and correct themselves, leave them alone. Indeed, Allah is Ever
Accepting of repentance and merciful. So remember those who repent, then Allah accepts their repentance. The repentance accepted by Allah is only for those who do wrong in ignorance or carelessness, and then repent, soon after, it is those to whom Allah will turn in for forgiveness. And Allah is Ever knowing and wise. What is Johanna, what is ignorance, ignorance can also be carelessness, that a person does something wrong, because they don't know it is wrong, or that they don't remember it is wrong. They don't remember that they're being watched. And this is usually when a person is overcome by their emotion. They're blinded by their desire, when they started tober to
the lady in ar meluna say he had, but repentance is not accepted of those who continue to do evil deeds up Until when death comes to one of them. He says, indeed, I have repented now, or of those who die while there disbelievers for them, we have prepared a painful punishment. So remember, forgiveness is for those who repent, and the person who does not repent or does not repent in time, then how will they be forgiven? In a hadith we learn Malaya to live to barley, he the one who does not repent, then his repentance is not accepted because he never repented in the first place. So repent before it's too late. Then it is said all you who have believed it is not lawful for you to
inherit women by compulsion, women are not properties you cannot inherit them and do not make difficulties for them in order to take back part of what you gave them unless they commit a clear immorality. Where are she ruhuna Bill Maher roof and live with them in kindness. Here is special instruction is being given to the husband, Archie ruhuna. Bill Maher roof, live with your wife in a good way. And a call to B says this includes give her her money and spend on her without being cheap and stingy. Do not secondly, do not be too serious and upset with her without a reason. Thirdly, be friendly and loving in speech. Fourthly, do not be rude or harsh. And fifth, do not inclined to
other women do not take interest in other women, meaning there should be no infidelity, he should be faithful to her. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the best of believers are those who are best in their character. And the best of you in your character, are those who are best in character to their wives. So, if you are the most charming person outside the house, but to your wife, you are not, then your good luck, your good manners do not matter at all. Remember, the harshness of the husband is very, very difficult for the wife to bear. When he cheats her, when he hurts her, this is something very painful for her, when he does not give her her rights. Again, this
is something very painful for her. And this includes sexual gratification. Also, many women are, are deprived of this in their marriages, where the husband is only concerned about his own pleasure. And the pleasure of the wife is considered immoral. While she ruhuna Bill Maher roof, then Allah says For if you dislike them, for encourage you to move on now. If you dislike them, then perhaps you dislike a thing. And Allah makes they're in much good. So look at the positive side and overlook what you dislike in people. The thing is that no person, no human being can be exactly the way you want them to be. So you have to take the the annoying parts of a person with their good side. So you
have to be patient over what bothers you. You don't get angry and upset over little things. And it's quite possible that something that bothers you, Allah subhanaw taala brings out so much good out of it for you. So don't obsess over what you dislike in your relationship. focus on the positive. And you know, some people they're very difficult to deal with, but they remind you of your reality. So you don't become arrogant. They remind you of your shortcomings. So you keep turning back to Allah. And then it is said, but if you want to replace one wife with another, and sometimes it happens that the marriage that the relationship is just not working out. So then ended don't just stay married in
a toxic relationship, just because of what people will say, No, unless panthro does not torture us like that. If you must end a marriage, then even if you have given one of them a great amount, meaning at the time of nica, you gave your wife a whole lot of wealth as my her or as gifts, then do not take back from it anything. Would you take it in injustice and manifest sin. And many people do this. Then when they intend to divorce and they they realize that after divorce, the woman will take whatever was given to her
Then what they do is that they start accusing her of crimes that she never committed. Why? So that she will, in desperation, seek color. Right? And in that case, she will have to return what she took. So unless panatela says we'll pay for that, who do know who and how could you take it, while you have gone in unto each other, meaning have respect for the fact that regardless of whatever has happened, you have been intimate with her, that does not give you the right to take back anything from her and they have taken from you a solemn covenant. And this is very unfortunate, are so many women are abused. They are any brought to that they are put in such a difficult situation that they
don't know how to save themselves. While our turnkey Humana Cahaba will come and do not marry those women whom your father's married, except what has already occurred. Indeed, it was an immorality, and hateful to Allah, and was evil as a way prohibited to you from marriage or your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, any you cannot marry your own mother, you cannot marry your own daughter or your own sister. Marriage is not lawful. But this is so unfortunate that in Muslim households, even women, young girls are not safe from their own male relatives. So it is necessary that girls are taught to protect themselves. They're taught what sexual abuse is, so that if ever a girl senses a
threat of the sword, she is able to speak up, she's able to defend herself she's able to seek justice. And if there ever is a situation like this, then do not remain silent about this abuse. nor should you tell your girls to remain silent for the sake of family's reputation.
