Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone. I hope you all are excited about Ramadan so Ramadan Mubarak to everyone may not enable us to make the most of this Ramadan May Allah enable us to get forgiveness this Ramadan, amin and unhandled Allah handled Allah subhana wa tada gave us this precious month again. So Not everyone gets this opportunity right in handle there were many people who were present with us last year in Ramadan, but they are not here anymore. There were many people who were able to do so much more but panela now we don't have many people or they don't have the ability to do a lot. So Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala has chosen us for another precious month,

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

we should make the most of this month and we should be very very happy about this month and inshallah we should have a solid plan to begin this month. So inshallah Let's begin by praising almost panatela first and then inshallah we're going to talk about our their eyes and some reminders in Alhamdulillah medu and a sign who want to stop you when our to be law he means Rory and fusina women say Dr. Melina May the love and mobile era woman your bill hufa Hi Deanna. I said, you know in Allahu wa luxury Ghana, I shall do Anam hamedan Abdu l rasuluh that will be leguminosae Guana regime. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Robbie frightening surgery where you Sidley Omri, watnall oculata

00:02:28--> 00:03:15

melissani of early probenecid Lima Allahumma poppin fvd. May Allah give us the correct understanding of the the And may Allah enable us to benefit from these sessions in Ramadan. So inshallah a few reminders before we talk about the duras so inshallah quick Ramadan reminders that there are only few number of days sometimes you think it's like it's like a month, so we will be able to do a lot, but Subhanallah the way Ramadan usually slips away, it's faster than any other month, you must have noticed that right? So take it like number of days, so that you can make the most of this month in Java. So maximize your time by worshiping in it and try to minimize the other usual tasks, the

00:03:15--> 00:04:00

chores, and if you can, you know, do something in order to just make them shorter. And if you can just find some shortcuts for your other chores which are not related to worship, then inshallah try to do that. So most of your time to go in worship, and the best way to plan and plan out your worship is that inshallah if you can schedule your acts of worship around your Salah timings, and when you do that you won't forget because Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah majority of us are not going to miss Salawat right, we won't miss our five daily prayers. So inshallah, if your schedule of adding some uscar some memorization of the Quran, some recitation of the Quran is there in your

00:04:00--> 00:04:09

schedule, then inshallah attach those amazing good deeds with Salah time so that you don't forget those amazing good deeds. inshallah, that really, really helps.

00:04:10--> 00:04:51

And avoid all unimportant tasks. They may be some tasks, they're good tasks, but they're not important. You can always do it after Ramadan, that if it's the case, please delete. Like if you're feeling like, you know, drawing something or stitching something, and if you can avoid that, and if you can do it afterwards, then please don't use don't use your time in that. Because you know, there were plenty of months and cello where you would be able to do that. So this month is for worship, and this month is to get the forgiveness and freedom from hellfire. So that's something we should not lose. It's just like a precious month, which is a month of sales, as we have talked about

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

before. So we want sit home and wait a waste this opportunity right? Imagine if massive sale is going on and if

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

It's not a lockdown situation and you're able to go then you would go and especially when it comes to the products and things you need, so the products you need, they're on sale, you cannot miss them. So it's not smart to miss them. So similarly this month is amazing, it has the gifts we need, so we can't be dumb enough to miss out the opportunity or miss out the rewards we can gain in this month inshallah these were just a few reminders and on humble Allah, schedule it that's very important if we have everything jot down, if we have our task list checklist, it becomes easy for us to follow it. So Alhamdulillah there is a beautiful checklist by alhuda so if you want to take a

00:05:44--> 00:06:14

screenshot of this, it has tasks and it also has boxes for all the months hamdulillah so inshallah if you want to have you know this as a guide you can add more to it I wouldn't say delete anything from it but add more to it inshallah and make your own checklist as well but for now this is a good starting point if you don't have anything on on you already Alright, or maybe you can get some ideas from it and add to your existing lists inshallah. So let's move on

00:06:15--> 00:06:24

so inshallah two doors which is the thing we had covered yesterday, we are going to do them together. Both of our doors for today are to us of protection.

00:06:26--> 00:07:04

So to those of protection we're going to cover today inshallah, so these are going to be our seventh and $8 so I will do our list is also getting lengthy, which is great. And I'm humbler Today is Friday, right for all of you. So inshallah Don't forget to make all of these dollars before mother in shock, especially the last hour before mother when scholars you know they they suggest that that's the hour on the Friday when our daughter accepted then inshallah please make the most of that hour don't do anything but dos last hour on the private inshallah

00:07:06--> 00:07:10

sister Cora tonight try to take screenshots in class, so it'd be easier for you.

00:07:12--> 00:07:55

So let's do the Dora This is a very beautiful one it has blessings mentioned but we asked one of us and one avatar for protection against the blessings amazing. Allah O Allah, in me are also bigger, I seek refuge with You minja is su from an evil neighbor, woman zojirushi boonie our blood machine and a spouse It doesn't say husband or wife so either one and a spouse who causes me to grow old before old age woman what are the Guna I'm a Reba and from a child who will become a master over he will become a rub over me Master over

00:07:56--> 00:08:27

me money your guru IRA yada yada, and the wealth which will become a punishment from woman highly in in marketing iE nobuta Ronnie pecan boo you're on. And also from a cunning friend, a sharp friend in a wrong way, who, who's always watching for false in me, and whose heart is plotting and planning against such that and next part

00:08:29--> 00:09:02

era Hassan attend have an aha, when he sees any good in me, he defends it right, the fun is what he buries it. When he sees anything good. he buries it, he doesn't tell no one about it. But when he sees anything evil, what you say he added, and then he makes it public. Then he broadcasts it, then he spreads it, Panama. So this is a very, very beautiful dog. The reference is right here and it was one of the usual dogs of us will have lost a lot of seven.

00:09:03--> 00:09:50

And five lessons are mentioned in the story our neighbors, spouse, children, wealth, and friends. All of these are very important for us, isn't it? But we're asking Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from these protect us from the evil of all of these blessings. So what is the lesson for us in every blessing, there may be something evil, so we want Allah to protect us from that. Alright, so let's try to memorize it in an easy way. So if you just divide the whole data into five parts, and you will notice that a sort of loss or sentiment he would make the store you would just add a bit of detail with every category you want to say that you know save me from bad neighbor, bad wife for bad

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

or bad son, bad daughter, or bad wealth or bad friend, not just like that, but a little bit of detail, but when it came to Hollywood, which is friend

00:10:00--> 00:10:49

He mentioned quite a lot, right? Because Subhanallah friends sometimes, you know, we prefer them over others a lot, or sometimes friends are very important part of our lives, especially if you are living far away from our families, so they can become a big problem in our lives. And sometimes we are heartbroken because of that, isn't it? Sometimes we trust them so much. But then, you know, they are the backstabbers, right, so we're making dua that will save us from such cunning friends who are not good for, you know, save us from fake friends. So they appear that they're very close to you, but they don't mention anything good about you to anyone. And they always mentioned the false in as

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

the status thing, right? Subhanallah

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

so let's look at this.

00:10:54--> 00:11:31

Allah Allah in me are also becau Indeed, I asked you for refuge in You from jar which is neighbor, a su a suit means evil men zote from spouse, who will make me all before I get old, what does that mean, annoying spouse, who will give such hard time that a person will become old before the old age and from a child who will become like a master who will not even listen? Who would boss around

00:11:32--> 00:11:59

his parents. So we should make for that as well. And also from the world will will which will become other punishment. What does that mean? Sometimes wealth becomes a big problem people they can't even sleep. They can't even have a sound sleep. Why? Because they're worried about their wealth. They're worried about making money or they're worried about saving money, or they're worried about losing money. So that becomes another prep for them.

00:12:00--> 00:12:07

And sometimes, if it is, aren't too hard means it does become another an afterlife as well.

00:12:08--> 00:12:33

And last but not the least, a friend who looks at your faults all the time. And his you know that his job or that her job. So we asked him Allah subhanaw taala to protect us against Pat neighbor's annoying spouse, domineering children destroying wealth and insincere friends. So May Allah protect us all against all of these?

00:12:34--> 00:13:18

So this is a beautiful Why would you guys say? Isn't it so we should include it in our routine. The second offer today is that there are of protection to do with eight things hamdulillah so all law let's look at the Arabic first Allahumma inni are also becoming an HMI while hasn't while our dizzy while castle, while ubani one bowl. with Bella, ideally, we'll hire a better wager, Allah, I seek refuge in You from worries, and from grief and from helplessness and from laziness, and from cowardice and from miserliness. And from the overpowering of debt and domination of the people.

00:13:21--> 00:13:34

So let's see. So the, sorry, the reference of this Hadeeth, Sal Buhari, and honestly the law, and he mentioned that he was traveling with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam once, and he heard him saying this a lot.

00:13:35--> 00:14:17

So not just once, but many times, even while traveling, he was worried about all of these eight matters. So let's look at them one by one. What is a worry? Worry is something to do with future. Right that what will happen tomorrow? Will I have the job or not? Will I get married or not? Will I have a you know, good family or not? So that's where we are. So we asking a lot to save us from worries because future is not in our hands. The second is hasn't grief, grief has to do with past. So we don't want to grieve over something which has already gone, right, which which has passed already spam.

00:14:18--> 00:14:49

And third is odds, which is helplessness, when you are weak to do anything, when you want to do something but you don't have the ability or you don't have the resources. And this is very painful. You know, sometimes you really have a solid plan, a great thing, a great idea, but you cannot implement it because of your health business. Or sometimes you you want to help people with you yourself is helpless. And that's a very, very sad states.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

And that kind of annoys a person a lot. So we are asking Allah to save us from helplessness and also when it comes to dealing with family man

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

and stuff. That is also another aspect of helplessness that we don't want to be dependent on people we just want to be dependent on Allah. That's all. Next is castle laziness and Subhanallah laziness is one of the biggest problems of today, right. So inshallah especially in Ramadan, we don't want to be lazy, we cannot waste this precious Ramadan, fifth one juban which is covered is so which is you know being scared or fearing. But this is not a fear which is healthy. So, we are not even able, we are not even able to defend ourselves or we are not even able to say the truth.

00:15:43--> 00:15:52

And next is vocal which is miserliness. And we all understand that. So me Allah save us from miserliness, so that we can be generous that we can spend on others

00:15:53--> 00:16:37

whether I vain and we want to be saved from the debt, especially a lot of debt, which we can't pay off. So, this is a very beautiful door, that to stay safe against debt as well. And the last one is the domination of people. I don't want people to boss around to bossed me around, I don't want people to overpower me, no one wants that right. So inshallah that's something you can make the offer and Allah subhanaw taala will protect us against all of these eight. So May Allah reward each and every one of you for paying attention. Please include these drawers in your lists, because these are Muslim laws. These are the laws of rule of law sallallahu wasallam if you memorize them, and if

00:16:37--> 00:17:05

you repeat them inshallah, you can hope for the reward the following soon as well. And of course on top of that, this is a dua these are the drawers and also these are the acts of worship, easy ways to panela to get a lot of rewards just for asking for many things apart. So Alhamdulillah we are done for today, desert mano Kanga sera so panagia Lomo behind bigger eyeshadow a la ilaha illa and as the federal governor adieu LA

00:17:08--> 00:17:17

inshallah, I'm going to show you the references one more time.

00:17:36--> 00:17:40

So this one is the heel Why are these number five four to five

00:17:42--> 00:17:44

and the one with five blessings.

00:17:45--> 00:17:47

hamdu lillahi Ramadan Mubarak to you. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to spend this month with the Quran And may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to earn his forgiveness through this month in sha Allah.

00:19:25--> 00:19:45

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

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever Allah wishes good for he gives them the understanding of religion. So this is Allah subhanaw taala has huge mercy

00:20:00--> 00:20:51

upon us, that he is giving us a chance to connect with his religion. It is his great mercy that He has given us the love for his religion. And it's understanding Alhamdulillah because loving the religion is something good, but loving it alone is not enough knowledge, knowing it, understanding it, that is essential, because the person who understands the deen then they're able to accumulate much good by which they benefit in this life, and they also benefit in the next life. And remember that learning sacred knowledge, the knowledge of the Quran, this is also an act of worship, because Allah subhanaw taala commands us to learn farlam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:20:51--> 00:21:40

specifically told us that I lemuel Quran, learn the Quran and reflecting upon the Quran is also in obedience to Allah's command, because Allah says a fillet at the baronial Quran, meaning they should reflect on the Quran. So, an altar remember that reviewing the Quran with someone meaning reading it together. This is a Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because he used to review the Quran with gibreel every night of the month of Ramadan. Allah subhanaw taala tells us that eurofer illa, who levina amanu Minh come when levina ocular enema, Dora Jatt, that Allah will raise those who have believed among you, and those who are given knowledge by degrees, meaning with an increase

00:21:40--> 00:22:13

in knowledge, and by that an increase in a man. This is something that increases a person in their rank near Allah subhanaw taala also, so we should not have any hesitation in spending time with the book of Allah in this month. If this time that we spend together where we reflect upon the Quran, we review it together. This helps us recite the Quran better, it encourages us and reminds us to worship our Lord, then this is an act of Riba.

00:22:14--> 00:23:00

We learned that Jehovah and his daughter sukeena she asked her father, that is it not that the scholars of Hades would put away their books of Hades in the month of Ramadan and only focus on the recitation of the Quran, meaning they would only focus on their personal worship and they would not engage in learning and teaching and studying. Is this correct? she asked him that is this month only for the Quran? So shall I stop the study of books of Hadees etc. So he answered that this the fleece this specification has no basis in the Sunnah. What is known from the Sunnah is an increase in the recitation of the Quran in the month of Ramadan. It doesn't mean that we have to only recite the

00:23:00--> 00:23:51

Quran and do nothing else. No, we can also engage in seeking knowledge in learning in teaching in studying etc. But along with that, we should also increase in the recitation of the Quran. So feel no guilt, because sometimes people feel guilty that you know what I should be spending this time and the recitation of the Quran, not in things related to Darlene even Okay, Rahim. Allah said that as for reflecting upon the Quran, then it is to fix the eyes of the heart upon the meanings of the Quran, and focusing all of one's thoughts on understanding and reflecting upon it. And this is the very objective the very purpose of the revelation of the Quran. Mere recitation, without

00:23:51--> 00:24:33

understanding and reflection is not the objective. So if we are only reciting Our goal is to just complete five recitations of the entire course or 10 or 15. Or, or how many ever that is good, but the recitation alone without any understanding without any reflection, that is not the objective of the revelation of the Quran. So Alhamdulillah we're getting the opportunity to learn the meanings, review the meanings, or reflect upon the meanings and in sha Allah. This is something that will help us improve our recitation in sha Allah Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Jews number five.

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

One more Sana to Mina Nisa, Illa Malika Amer nucalm Kitab Allah here la come, what oh hell, lella komazawa ra alikhan and tableta who will be unwelcome mostly Nene, Laila Mousavi hain and also prohibited to you for marriage are all married women, except those your right hands possess.

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

meaning those that follow us captive. This is the decree of Allah upon you. Meaning This is something that Allah subhana wa tada has decided, and lawful to you are all other women beyond these, provided that you seek them in marriage with gifts from your property, meaning you must marry them properly, and give them their due. And when you marry, then desire chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse, meaning don't just pay a woman in order to enjoy her sexually, nor have a temporary marriage simply to have relations with her. So for whatever you enjoy of marriage from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you

00:25:45--> 00:26:36

mutually agree. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is Ever knowing and wise. So we see in this idea that the man is obligated to give the Mahalo to his wife. This is not something that is just to be mentioned in the marriage contract, or it is to be spoken off at the time of marriage. No, it is actually a financial obligation upon the man. And until he gives it to his wife, he hands it over to her, making it her complete possession. It is a debt on him. So at the time of nica, at the time of marriage, the man must give the woman her mother. However, if she willingly for goals, part of it or all of it, with her volition, not by

00:26:36--> 00:27:24

compulsion, then that is something which is permissible. And this verse also shows us what a legal relationship between a man and a woman looks like. You see Allah subhanaw taala has created human beings with different desires, there is the desire for food, the appetite of the stomach, and there is the desire for sexual pleasure. But just as there are boundaries that have been set, when it comes to food and drink, there are also boundaries for sexual pleasure. This is what sets apart a person who has surrendered to Allah from the one who has not the person who has surrendered to Allah will not go on fulfilling their desire, whenever and however, and with whatever that they please,

00:27:24--> 00:28:16

rather, they will remain within the bounds of what is permissible. And remember, the goal of these boundaries is not deprivation, but it is for our own benefit and protection, because in the law, how can I Lehman hekima Indeed Allah is Ever knowing, ever wise. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that all young men, those among you who can support a wife should marry for it restrains eyes, and preserves one from immorality, but he who cannot afford it should observe fasting for it as a means of controlling the sexual desire. Woman lemmya Stelter, men control and and whoever among you cannot find the means the means to what the means to marry free believing women, then what should he

00:28:16--> 00:29:02

do, then he may marry from those whom your right hands possess of believing slave girls, meaning set, meaning set her free, a slave woman, but then the condition is that she must be a believer, and then you can marry her. And Allah is most knowing about your faith will Allah who are alone will be Imani calm. You see, when it comes to the faith of people, we must deal with them based on their external, their outward, and Allah subhanaw taala knows the reality of the hearts of people. The fact is that we don't even know what our level of faith is at times. Then how can we speak confidently about the faith of someone else? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I

00:29:02--> 00:29:51

have not been ordered by Allah to search the hearts of the people or cut open their bellies, meaning I am supposed to deal with people based on their outward so we're Allahu Allah mawby Imani Khan, Allah is most knowing about your faith. You see, sometimes we hear about a certain individual who embraced Islam, and then they married you know, a Muslim, and then people wonder that they embraced Islam for the sake of marriage. There Islam is not sincere, we should refrain from passing such judgment. Because Allah subhanaw taala is the one who knows why someone became Muslim. And if they are really Muslim or not, well, Allah who are level B he manickam you believers are off one another.

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

Meaning all of you are children of Adam. You see in this iron, the men are being allowed to marry a slave.

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

A woman right provided that she is a believer and when it comes to marrying someone who is of a lower social status, then this is something that people are, you know very concerned about that they hesitate. But this is a reminder you believers are off one another, that the socio economic status of a person is not everything that defines them. There is more to a person than their lineage than their wealth than their physical appearance. So, let us not be superficial when it comes to marriage. It is said so, marry them with the permission of their people and give them their due compensation, according to what is acceptable, meaning even to a slave woman, give her the Maha then

00:30:45--> 00:31:27

what do you think about a free woman? Remember, what makes nicca different from Xena is the fact that Nika is public. And Xena is secret sonika should be marriage should be with the permission of the woman's family. This Nika should be known. They should be chaste. Neither of those who commit unlawful intercourse randomly, nor those who take secret lovers, but once they are sheltered in marriage, if they should commit adultery than for them is half the punishment for free women. This is for him, among you, who fears sin, but to be patient is better for you. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

00:31:28--> 00:32:00

Here in this ayah, we see that slavery is mentioned. And when it comes to slavery, this is a complicated topic that, quite frankly, is very hard for many people to comprehend. The problem is that when we think of slavery, we think of the transatlantic slave trade. We think of ices we think of movies such as a book such as 12 years of slave, and we can only imagine then that slavery is something evil. And the very mention of such things in the Quran makes us extremely uncomfortable.

00:32:01--> 00:32:48

Remember that slavery was something common at the time when the Quran was revealed, not just in Arabia, but everywhere, it was a global reality. And like everything else, guidelines regarding slavery were given that would eventually lead to its abolition. And if not that, then if slavery does exist, ever in a place or time, then Islam is clear about the rights of the slaves, how should how they should be treated, how they should be viewed, and so on and so forth. And I want you to try and look, look beyond look past the biases that we have developed, and appreciate this idea that how a Muslim man is being encouraged to marry a slave woman, to set her free to give her mother to seek

00:32:48--> 00:33:26

permission from her family, and then marry her. Does this not tell us about the status of those in slavery in Islam? And this verse, unfortunately, many people use to show that you know it that in Islam, it is allowed to rape, female war captives and slave women. Remember that slavery in Islam is not legalized rape, as some people like to claim. Consider the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said, Whoever strikes his slave sharply or slaps him, then the expiation for the sin is to set the slave free.

00:33:27--> 00:34:17

If beating is not allowed, if hitting is not allowed, then what do you think about sexual violence? Would there be any room for that? We learned that Mr. Michel Fairey he said that as for sexual intercourse, its purpose is pleasure. And no one may be forced into it, meaning coercion goes against the very nature of this act. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he urged the fair and kind treatment of the week, he said is so so Bill busara Hi, Ron, that I enjoin you to treat prisoners well benissa in hi Ron, I enjoin you to treat women well also. And in his final illness, he urged his oma to pay special regard to two matters, a select woman Melaka, a man

00:34:17--> 00:34:59

who can pay attention to your Salah and also pay attention, meaning fear Allah regarding the slaves, you read Allah holy, you obey in Allah calm, Allah wants to make clear to you, meaning all of these matters are laid out clearly over here, so that you know what is lawful and what is unlawful and he intends to guide you to the good practices of those before you and to accept your repentance. And Allah is Knowing and wise, will law who you read to Enya tuber Aleykum and Allah wants to accept your repentance, but those who follow their passions, want you to digress into a great deviation. You read the law Who are you huffy foreign co

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

And Allah wants to light and for you, meaning your difficulties, your burdens, Allah subhanaw taala intends to create ease for you Why will only call insano Bear Eva and mankind was created week. So we see that the commands that are given in the sutra and in the Quran, the allowances that are given, they are actually for our ease. And we see that all of these commands and all of these restrictions and prohibitions and allowances. They are realistic, they are practical laws, which ensure justice for all people. And apparently, when we study Islamic law, especially that which is related to marriage, we may feel that there's so many restrictions, there's too many rules. But if

00:35:45--> 00:36:34

you think about it, yes, restrictions do make us uncomfortable. But restrictions are also healthy boundaries are actually necessary. Because too much freedom can actually create difficulty for people think about it. Why do we have traffic lights? Why do we have lane markings? Why do we have speed limits, because too much freedom on the road can be devastating. So just like that, when Allah subhana wa tada has given us these boundaries, these laws, this is not to deprive us, this is not to put us in hardship. This is actually to create ease for us. Yeah, a U haul levena amanu. All you who have believed, do not consume one another as wealth unjustly meaning do not adopt illegal ways of

00:36:34--> 00:37:25

acquiring wealth, whether it is theft, or burglary, or interest or bribe or fraud or any other way, but only in lawful business by mutual consent. When the Cthulhu enforcer come and do not kill yourselves, or this also means do not kill one another. Because killing another Muslim is like killing oneself. Because Muslims life is sacred. We are supposed to be one body and the punishment for manslaughter is death. So laughter Cthulhu, enforcer, calm, and literally, do not kill yourselves. And this tells us very clearly that suicide is how long it is not something permissible. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful in the law, her cannot become rahima This is why Allah

00:37:25--> 00:38:12

subhanaw taala has set these boundaries for us. You see, sometimes what happens is that a person feels exasperated by their circumstances, and they think that it is better to just end their life. Remember, the only thing that is certain in your life is actually your death. Sooner or later, you are going to die. You're not going to live in this world forever. But because Allah subhana wa tada is the one who has given you life. He is the one who has the right to take it away. This is not a choice that we make ourselves. This is a choice that is with the owner, this decision belongs to the owner alone, and the desire to die. If you think about it, it comes from a place of despair. And it

00:38:12--> 00:38:44

is important to remember in these moments that inala cannot become rahima that yes, life is tough. It can feel unbearably difficult. But Allah does not like you to harm yourself. He has compassion towards you. So you should also have compassion towards yourself, you are worthy. Well, many of our values are the one and will Luma and whoever does that in aggression and injustice, then we will drive him into a fire and that for Allah is always easy.

00:38:46--> 00:39:37

integer Tony bukoba era Martin hona and if you avoid the major sins, which you are forbidden, we will remove from you your lesser sins and admit you to a noble entrance, meaning we will admit you then into Jannah it is necessary that we avoid major sins. And remember a major sin even our best will the Allahu anhu explained is a sin for which is threat of hell, or the curse of Allah or his wrath. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam clearly informed us what major sins are. He said, shall I tell you which is the worst of major wrong actions? And the companion said yes, a messenger of Allah. And he replied, associating partners with Allah and disobeying parents Subhan Allah after

00:39:37--> 00:40:00

shidduch, disobeying parents, and then he was reclining at the time, but he sat up. And after sitting up, he said, and false witness, meaning giving false testimony, this is also a major sin. In another head, these we learn, he said, avoid the seven great destructive sins. So the people asked what are they? And he said to join others in worship along with Allah to practice

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

Just magic to kill the life which Allah has forbidden to eat Riba to eat up and orphans wealth, to give back to the enemy and fleeing from the battlefield at the time of fighting, and to accuse chest women who never even think of anything touching their chastity. And they're good believers, meaning accusing them of Zina and things like that. So we seen this idea that if a person avoids major sins, then their minor sins will also be erased, and their good deeds will erase their sins. There's a condition and the condition is that the major sins should be avoided. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the five daily prayers and one jamara to the next one Friday prayer to the next

00:40:47--> 00:41:38

Friday prayer, and one Ramadan to the next Ramadan. All of these deeds are expiation for the sins committed in between either gitana Bell cabal it provided that a person avoids the major since. So it is necessary that we avoid major sins if we want the forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once ascended the member and he said up Shirou up Giroux, he said, I swear I swear No, I swear oxymoron. up she grew up she wrote good news, good news. Whoever performs the five daily prayers and avoids major sins will enter Jenna from whichever gate that he wants. Subhan Allah avoiding major sins is a means of forgiveness. And when a person avoids major

00:41:38--> 00:42:24

sins, then La ilaha illa Allah helps them and then their good deeds help them. Well uttama Noma for bola la hoopy he barbacoa Allah about and do not wish for that by which Allah has made some of you exceed others. The fact is that Allah subhanaw taala has created a difference between people, meaning some people have been given what appears to be more and better than what others have been given. But this doesn't mean that some have been given nothing. No, Allah subhanaw taala has given each creature something. So each person has certain strengths and certain deficiencies. Now the problem is that when you compare yourself to others, yes, you do realize that they have what you

00:42:24--> 00:43:12

don't have, and that you have what they don't have. But this constant comparison is actually very unhealthy. Why? Because it leads to his superiority complex, where a person begins to feel that you know what I am better than others because I have this and they don't have it. Or it leads to an inferiority complex where a person feels that they're inferior compared to others because they don't have what others have. So what we need is as what some call it interiority which is to live without comparison. It is to be yourself and to not worry constantly about comparing yourself to others. Because when we are constantly comparing ourselves to others, we fail to see what Allah has given us

00:43:12--> 00:44:02

and we feel jealous over what others have. And Allah subhanaw taala prohibits us from this one our data man No man football Allahu Allah He battled Akuma Allah BB levy jalin acebo mimica Sabu well in Nisa in acebo min max seven, for men is a share of what they have earned, and for women is a share of what they have earned. This is what matters what you earn. So even though Allah subhanaw taala has created people different and given people you know, different rights, different privileges, there is still equal opportunity for all how how is there equal opportunity for all that the door of equity sab of earning, of doing this is open to all meaning you can do something good, where you

00:44:02--> 00:44:48

are, and as you are, and Allah subhanaw taala has granted real freedom to people, which is spiritual freedom, not physical. And each and every person can accomplish any a lot just by embracing who they are. By using by harnessing the the unique abilities and strengths that are lost plant Allah has given them the paths that Allah subhanaw taala has opened for them. So instead of viewing our limitations as obstacles, we need to view them as avenues. We need to understand that at times, the obstacle is the way you know, sometimes we think that because I'm a woman, I cannot do this or that because I'm young, because I'm old because it's cold because it's hot because it's Ramadan because

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

I'm fasting because I'm not fasting, any we make our condition, our situation and excuse whereas our condition the situation that Allah subhanaw taala puts us in

00:45:00--> 00:45:49

The the rights or the obligations that he has imposed upon us, or the the opportunities that he has taken away from us. Any whatever situation we are in, is actually not a deprivation, it is an opportunity. And remember that as a Muslim, every single person has a fair chance to succeed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that we'll ever do either tuck or bow who will alter Amalia who follow who are drawn, that if a slave fears Allah and obeys his master, then he too will get a double reward. Imagine a slave, what kind of freedom does a slave enjoy? Not much. But if a slave is beautiful to Allah, and is obedient to his master, meaning the human one, then the last

00:45:49--> 00:46:42

part, I will give them double reward. Imagine such a person will be in Jenna, they were a slave in the world, but they will be in Jannah in the hereafter. So remember, for a believer, every situation is actually an opportunity. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, amazing is the case of the believer. Why? Because if he's in difficulty, he is patient and that patient is good for him. If he is with blessing, he is grateful and that gratitude is good for him. So our success is not in becoming an identical imitation of another person. know our success is not becoming is not in becoming someone else. Our success is in being pleased with Allah subhanaw taala is decree for us

00:46:43--> 00:47:30

in focusing on what we can do, because that is what we will be asked about. We will not be asked about what we could not do. We will be asked about the things that we were able to do and we still did not do them was alula hum and fogli and ask Allah of his bounty in Allah be cliche in Lima. Indeed, Allah is Ever of all things knowing. So instead of envying what others have been given, ask Allah for his favor, you see, at least was envious and look at where his envy took him. So instead of being upset with the, you know, with the framework of legal rights and responsibilities that our last panel Tata has given us, we need to accept these realities and focus on action, focus on what

00:47:30--> 00:48:17

we are supposed to do, and what we can do. And when you send some kind of shortage, and then call upon Allah subhanaw taala, who is the source of all blessings, your dollars will take you somewhere, but your jealousy won't. We learned that a man once came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a guest, and he the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent someone to his family to bring food, but there was no food at his house. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made Dora Allahumma in the SLO come in fugly. kawara Matic for inner hula yummly koha illa, anta that Oh Allah, I ask you of your favor, and your mercy for non onset except you. And he had made this da and very soon, a

00:48:17--> 00:48:43

gift of some cooked meat was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wanted food, he made Dora, and food was brought to him. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at that, that this is Allah's favor, and we await his mercy. So when you want something, when you feel that something is missing you you are in need of it, then call upon Allah subhanaw taala ask Him for His favor.

00:48:45--> 00:49:25

And for all people, we have made heirs to what is left by parents and relatives, and to those whom your Olds have bound to you give them their share. Indeed, Allah is Ever of over all things a witness. So we see that when it comes to inheritance, for example, Allah subhanaw taala has appointed the shares. And when it comes to these shares, they're not all equal. There are certain relatives who get you know, who whose share is greater compared to the share of others. So when you see these differences on the surface, it seems like all of this is unfair, but this is Allah subhanaw taala his decision, and instead of wishing for what others have been given, we should focus

00:49:25--> 00:49:53

on what we have been given and we should focus on at SAP on doing something because remember, that the door of action is open. Indeed, Allah is Ever all things a witness than it is said. A regehr Luca were Muna Allah Nisa, men archiwum over women, men are in charge of women. Why Bhima fotball Allah who Baba whom Allah about webi ma un* uhlmann amreli him.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

Men have been described as a worm over women who is a co worm. A worm is a

00:50:00--> 00:50:47

person who rises much, who stands up? Who gets up a lot again and again very often. Why? The one Allah is to get up? Why in order to take care of someone because you're responsible for them. You see, for example, when there's a little child, a new baby, then what happens? The new parents will stay up at night, constantly over and over again. They will go check on their new baby, they will nurse the baby, then they will go change the baby and then they will go try to put the baby to sleep. Any a warm Allah is someone who is constantly getting up again and again. Why? Because they have a responsibility on their shoulders. They're not just there for their own pleasure and their

00:50:47--> 00:51:34

own enjoyment pursuing their own, you know, joys in life? No, they have a huge responsibility to take care of someone. So who is it that men are supposed to take care of a well, Mona Island Lisa, they're supposed to take care of women. They're in charge of them, meaning they must take on this responsibility. They're supposed to take care of them. As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What led you to Robin, Allah le by T. A man is a shepherd over the people of his household. How it means that men cannot abandon their wives or neglect them neglect their needs, it means that they must spend on them, they must not demand money from them. It means that they must look after

00:51:34--> 00:52:19

them, not abuse them or leave them to fend for themselves. It means that they should ensure the safety the well being of the women who are related to them, they should help them they should do their work, they should fulfill their needs. Original comun Allah Nisa, why is it that Allah subhanaw taala has has made men that are Well, the reason is given by right of what Allah has given one over the other, and because of what they spend from their wealth. So firstly, because Allah has given men preference over women in certain ways, meaning Allah subhana wa tada has given them that by which they can actually take care of women. So the men must use what they have, what Allah

00:52:19--> 00:52:35

subhanaw taala has given them, to uplift women, to take care of them, not to bring them down, not to abuse them. And what is it that men have been given more of this varies from time to time and place to place in person to person, any at times it is such that

00:52:37--> 00:53:23

men have greater physical strength, right? They have better job opportunities, they have certain social privileges that women don't always enjoy. So it is not fair that a woman should have to fend for herself. No men are a worm over women. And secondly, the reason why I lost Pandora has made them qalam is because the men are required to spend on women. And this begins from the time of marriage, where the man has to give him or her. So the person who spends also has a greater status, they have greater, right. And this is something that Allah subhanaw taala has clearly mentioned in his book, and this is an undeniable reality. So if this is what men are supposed to bring to the relationship,

00:53:23--> 00:54:07

what about the women should they just be receiving and taking and giving nothing back? No, Allah subhanaw taala says for solly how to carnita so righteous women are devoutly obedient to who to Allah, and also to their husbands, because it is only with cooperation, and agreeableness that a relationship can thrive. If there's constant resistance and rejection or neglect on either party, then that relationship cannot survive and have a lot too little vibe such women are guarding in the husband's absence, what Allah would have them guard, meaning these women guard in obedience to Allah, what is hidden from their husbands. And this includes their own chastity. So this means they

00:54:07--> 00:54:53

do not cheat on their husbands. And this also includes the wealth of the husband, the house, the property, whatever it is, and also the private matters of the household, the secrets or you know, the information that is confidential, or a righteous woman keeps that within the family. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that the world is but a quick passing enjoyment. And the best enjoyment of the world is a pious and virtuous woman. Because you see a righteous woman is not only good toward her husband, he is truly fortunate just by having her company and also by having her as his life partner. Why, because the things that she will do, will also benefit her husband. We've learned in

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

holidays, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when a woman gives some of the food in her house, which is not spoiled, meaning

00:55:00--> 00:55:35

charity, then she gets a reward for what she gives. And her husband also gets a reward for what he earned. Even though he doesn't know about the food that was just given us charity. He didn't give that food as a charity, but he trusted his wife, he gave her money, right? He gave her the food so that she can do whatever she wants with it. And now when she makes such decisions, then he will benefit as well. Why because the money is his and he trusted his wife, he enabled her he he empowered her to make such good choices.

00:55:36--> 00:56:20

Then Allah subhanaw taala mentions, but those wives from whom you fear new shoes, and remember no shoes. This is not just any disobedience or you know someone having a different opinion, a woman voicing her opinions or just existing no new shoes is arrogance. This is ill conduct and according to some This is infidelity. So those wise from whom you fear infidelity, first advise them, then if they persist, then forsake them in bed, meaning express your disapproval by distance by distancing yourself, and finally strike them meaning in order to discipline them. This is to shock not to hurt, but if they obey you once more, seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is Ever exalted and grand.

00:56:20--> 00:57:07

Remember, in the Lucha Cana early Yun Kabir, ah, this means that any a husband should not get upset and annoyed and irritated over little things. And he don't start hurling abuses at your wife over petty issues, and don't hurt her for no real reason. Even if a man believes that he is 100%, right, because some men, you know, in their head, they just believe that men are always right, and women are always wrong. Even if a man is like that. And he is extremely, you know, misogynistic, sexist, etc. Even if he believes that his wife is in the wrong, still, it does not allow him to become abusive. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, He who believes in Allah and the

00:57:07--> 00:57:50

hereafter, if he witnesses any matter, then he should talk in good terms about it or keep quiet. Meaning if you see something, and you have something to say you want to say something, make sure it is good. If it is not good, then remain silent. You don't have to comment over everything. You don't have to give your you know, comments over everything that you witness. And he said act kindly towards women, act kindly towards them. And he gave a reason for a woman is created from a rib and the most crooked part of the rib is its top. So if you attempt to straighten it, you will break it. And if you leave it, it's crookedness will remain there. So act kindly towards women. What is this

00:57:50--> 00:58:35

head he's telling us that there are some things that you will never see eye to eye on? There are times when a man will completely disagree with his wife, or for example, he will believe that he is right and his wife is wrong. Okay? We accept that you are right, she is wrong. But that doesn't mean that you start abusing her. That doesn't mean that you become you know, you start showing your anger towards her all the time. No, you must restrain your anger and restrain your temper. restrain your ego because if you harm someone unjustly than the Prophet sallallahu or do you send them said love Dora will have the wrong woman Barbara, Barbara, Allah who be woman sharp, sharp Allah, Who are they

00:58:35--> 00:59:18

he do not cause harm or return harm. Whoever harms others, Allah will harm him. Whoever is harsh with others, Allah will be harsh with him. So notice how this ayah ends in Allah Cana I Li yen Kabira. Indeed, Allah is Exalted. He is high. He is Kebede he is Grande. We learned that Obama's Rudra de la hora reported that he was once beating a slave of his. And while he was beating his slave, he heard someone from behind him saying, it alum abama rude lulla who arkadelphia la come in Kerala, he know Obama's rude that Allah has more power over you than you have over him.

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

So I'm almost rude. He turned around and he saw that it was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he said, O Messenger of Allah, I have freed my slave for the sake of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If you have not done so, you would have been burned in the fire of hell. Think about it. If this is with respect to the treatment of slaves, then what do you think about the treatment of one's own wife? We learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said a believing man should not hate a believing woman, meaning you should not hate his wife and some men. Some men based on these verses, any day literally develop a hate for women. A contempt for women.

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

They consider their wives to be any non human. And when you think of a person like this, that they're that they're not human, their emotions, their feelings, their desires, you know, their needs, they don't matter, then you start abusing them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a believing man should not hate a believing woman, if he dislikes one of her characteristics, and it's quite possible that something about her really annoys you. Maybe it's the way she talks, maybe it's the way that she voices her opinions. Maybe it's the fact that she, he does not cook great food, right? Whatever it is that you don't like about her. Still, there is something that you still

01:00:40--> 01:01:24

like about her. So focus on what you like, not, not on what you dislike. The fact is that there is no human being that will always be 100%, according to how you want them to be. Then it is said, and if you fear dissension between the two, meaning the marriage is just not working out, then send an arbitrator from his people, and an arbitrator from her people. If they both desire reconciliation, Allah will cause it between them. Indeed, Allah is Ever knowing and acquainted with all things. So we see that the only thing that can allow a marriage to survive is the willingness to make it work on the side of both individuals, meaning both the man and the woman must have that willingness to

01:01:24--> 01:02:07

make their marriage work. So once you believe that your spouse is worth living with, then give your relationship the best that you can offer. And this is shows us that sometimes to help figure out the differences to come to better understanding any intervention is needed. So in situations like this, do not hesitate going for marriage counseling. Why would Allah Willa Toshiko be shy, then it is said, worship Allah and associate nothing with him and to parents do good and to relatives, orphans, the needy, the near neighbor, the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side, the traveler and those whom your right hands possess. So the people who are around you, whether they are around

01:02:07--> 01:02:50

you physically or virtually, be considerate of them, whether you are working with them, or sharing a space with them, traveling with them, living with them sitting next to them, respect them, Be courteous, do listen towards them. Why, Indeed, Allah does not like those who are self deluding and boastful, meaning the people who are lost in their own greatness only who only know about their own rights, their own privileges, and they don't care about others. And if they have something that others don't have, then they become arrogant and boastful. They begin to belittle others. Allah subhanaw taala does not like such people. So avoid such a HELOC. Whether this is at home or outside

01:02:50--> 01:03:35

or even when online and let the neighbor alone, those who are stingy and enjoin upon other people stinginess, and conceal what Allah has given them of his bounty, and we have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment. Why do they hide the blessings of Allah so that no one asks for them? Because they don't want to share? So remember, it's okay to have your own personal stash of you know, chocolate or things like that, but it is wrong to hide it with the intention to not share with others. Because remember, stinginess is something that is one of the worst traits that a human being can possess. stinginess prevents a person from spending on others from giving what is

01:03:35--> 01:04:20

due whether it is a cat or or spending on guests, or on ones dependence, and stinginess, is a sign of being weak. Right? It shows that a person is emotionally weak, spiritually weak. This is what Allah cantata mentioned in the Quran, where either muscles muscle Hiroo menorah, that when good touches him, he becomes very stingy and it's the worst human trait the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said shovel Murphy Rajan, Sharon Halloran with juban and Holly own, the worst thing that can exist in a person is stinginess with cowardice. And the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said and warned us against it the for sure, beware of show. And also those who spend of their wealth to be seen by the people

01:04:20--> 01:04:59

and believe not in Allah, nor in the last day, and he to whom shaitan is a companion than evil is he as a companion? And what harm would come upon them if they believed in Allah and the Last Day, and spent out of what Allah provided for them, and Allah is Ever about them knowing? Indeed, Allah does not do injustice, even as much as an atom's wait. While if there is a good deed, he multiplies ich and gives from himself a good reward. This is Allah's favor. So how will it be when we bring from every nation a witness and we bring you up

01:05:00--> 01:05:44

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam against them as a witness that day. Those who disbelieved and disobeyed, the messenger will wish they could be covered by the earth, and they will not conceal from Allah a single statement. This is a warning for those people who disobeyed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who disregard his teachings saying things like, Oh, this is not in the Quran? Yeah, are you Hello, Dina amanu all you who have believed, do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated, until you know what you are saying. Now this was revealed before the prohibition of wine. You see, one day a person led the people in prayer while he was intoxicated, and as he was

01:05:44--> 01:06:30

reciting the Quran, he made serious errors. So this idea was revealed that do not pray while you are intoxicated. And this shows us that when we are overcome by sleep, for example, then we should stop the recitation of the Quran at that time, or do something to wake up. Why, because then we will end up making grave errors. And in general also, we should know the meaning of what we are saying in Salah, we should know the meaning of what we are reciting, so that we can avoid errors. So do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated until you know what you were saying. Or in a state of Geneva, except those passing through until you have washed meaning your entire body. And if you are

01:06:30--> 01:07:17

ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and find no water than seek clean Earth meaning make to mum and wipe over your faces and your hands with it. Indeed, Allah is Ever pardoning and forgiving. So in this ayah Taya mom is mentioned, which is done in the absence of or inability to use water. And remember the tiamo is a substitute for Voodoo and for hosel. So wherever the time of prayer comes in, and a person is not able to make will do because there is no water or their condition is such that they are not able to use water for example, they're they're sick, then what should a person do? They should make to mom and pray.

01:07:17--> 01:08:03

Meaning Do not leave Salah still pray. And remember that entire mom we use Earth, right? We just have to pat our hands on the ground on clean ground. And you don't have to take handfuls of sand, but simply pat on it and then wipe your faces and then your hands and remember that sand of mud is not something dirty. Okay, unless there is clearly some fifth on it. In a narration It has been said the Messiah who will have for inner become Barbara that touched the ground because it is good to you.

01:08:03--> 01:08:15

previous prophets and nations. And one of the things he mentioned was would your ala Talia Aldo Masjid and what the hurun that the entire Earth has been made a place of worship, and a means of purification for me.

01:08:17--> 01:09:01

Alam Torah illa levina autosleep amin Al Kitab, Have you not seen those who are given a portion of the Scripture? What do they do what is so astonishing about them? They purchase error and wishing and they also wish you would lose the way And Allah is most knowing of your enemies. And sufficient is Allah as an ally. And sufficient is Allah as a helper? How beautiful worker fabula he will a young worker fabula Hina Sierra, you see, sometimes we get very scared when we find out that certain people don't like us, or certain people are, you know, planning to harm us or they're talking bad about us, or that they're spreading, you know, hate hateful things about us. Yes, this is scary, but

01:09:01--> 01:09:48

we must learn to depend upon Allah subhanaw taala because if we depend on ourselves, we will get exhausted. We have to learn to depend upon Allah because Allah sufficient as a Wali, as a friend as a helper and as an a sleeve. Among those who became Jews are those who distort words from their proper usages. And they say Sameera now are a Cena we hear and disobey and was smart later on was smart here, but being not heard. And alar ina, meaning instead of saying, Samir, Noah, Aparna they you know, they play on words, right? And why and why do they do this? How do they do this? twisting their tongues? Why defaming the religion? And if they had said instead Samir, now what Alterna we

01:09:48--> 01:09:59

here in obey, and they had said was smart one Luna wait for us to understand, it would have been better for them and more suitable. So remember, we always have the choice to use

01:10:00--> 01:10:18

Better language to use better words, we can always express ourselves in a respectful way. And the corruption of the tongue shows that there's a deeper problem. There is a problem in the heart, which needs to be fixed. But Allah has cursed them for their disbelief. So they believe not except for a few,

01:10:19--> 01:11:02

or you who were given the Scripture, believe in what we have sent down, confirming that which is with you, before we obliterate faces, and turn them toward their backs, or curse them, as we cursed the Sabbath breakers, and ever is the decree of Allah accomplished. Meaning Do you not fear Allah, when you make fun of his book, when you reject his book, when you make fun of his messenger? Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with him, but he forgives what is less than that for whom He wills, and he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin. So remember, shank is a major sin, and it must be avoided at all costs. Alam thora illa Dena use a

01:11:02--> 01:11:52

corner and foster home, Have you not seen those who claim themselves to be pure, rather, Allah purifies whom He wills and injustice is not done to them even as much as a thread, what kind of a thread if a team a thread which is inside a date seed, so inshallah today is your break your fast, then when you open your date, any look at the thread, which is inside, it is so fine, that at then and most of the time, it just gets stuck to the seed, that you don't even see it. so tiny, Allah subhanaw taala does not even do that much injustice to people. So we see in this idea that we have been advised against believing ourselves to be perfect, believing ourselves to be innocent and being

01:11:52--> 01:12:36

pure. Any, there's no need to brag. If a person is able to do something good, or they're able to avoid some sin, then they should not get diluted that you know what I'm such a good person. One of the scholars said that the person who never blames himself in life, meaning they always consider themselves to be good and right, and they never oppose themselves. He this person never opposes himself in any situation, and never does in his life, what his nuts dislikes, than such a person is in deception, and the one who believes himself to be the best, then such a person has ruined himself. So I'm Tara, Ella, larina, user corner and foster home. Have you not seen those who claim

01:12:36--> 01:13:19

themselves to be pure? The fact is that none of us are pure, none of us are perfect. None of us are innocent. We are all guilty of sin, and the good that we do, even that has so many deficiencies in it, so many problems with it. But this does not mean that a person constantly puts themselves down. No, we must remain between fear and hope. Remember that a believer is hopeful of Allah's mercy, and also afraid with regards to their deeds. And this is something that allows parents are mentioned in the Quran, while larina you tuna otter wa kulu Bois de la, those who give what they give, meaning that they give the charity, but then at the same time, their hearts are fearful. They're afraid. Why

01:13:19--> 01:14:00

are they afraid? Because they know that they have to return to their Lord. They have to face the consequences of their deeds, and they know how imperfect their deeds are. So such people Allah says Allah iica you Sorry, aroona Phil, hi, Rod. Such are the people who hasten to good deeds. They're the ones who rush in doing good deeds, they get ahead of others. Because when a person begins to believe that you know what, I'm good, I'm good as I am, I'm perfect. Then they stop working hard, but a person who remains between fear and hope, then they keep striving. Look how they invent about Allah untruth. And sufficient is that and sufficient is that as a manifest error, Have you not seen

01:14:00--> 01:14:45

those who are given a portion of the Scripture who believe in superstition and false objects of worship, and say about the disbelievers that these are better guided than the believers as to the way you see the previous nations, they also pursued gypped gypped The superstition even though they had the book of Allah, and this is a mistake that many Muslims make even today that even though we have the book of Allah, we turn to words, superstitious things, superstitious objects, we resort to superstitious beliefs. Allah subhanaw taala says those are the ones who Allah has cursed and he whom Allah curses, never will you find for him a helper. So remember, magic and superstition. These

01:14:45--> 01:14:59

things don't actually solve any problems. They only aggravate the problems because they invite the curse of Allah or have they a share of dominion. Then if that were so they would not give the people even as much as the speck on a date. See

01:15:00--> 01:15:44

Meaning This is how stingy they are, or do they envy people for what Allah has given them of his bounty. But we had already given the family of Ibrahim the Scripture and wisdom and conferred upon them a great kingdom, and some among them believe in it, and some among them believed in it. And some among them we're averse to it, and sufficient is hell as a blaze. So remember, those who reject the messenger don't actually harm the messenger, they harm themselves. Indeed, those who disbelieve in our verses, we will drive them into a fire. Every time their skins are roasted through, we will replace them with other skins, so they may taste the punishment. Indeed, Allah is Ever Exalted in

01:15:44--> 01:16:35

Might and Wise. Remember, the punishment of hell? Whether it is for an hour, or a day or a year, it is something terrible. So we must bring ourselves to leave all that which leads to hellfire. We must take those means that protect us from the fire of hell. And we must repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness. You see the nature of the punishment that is mentioned over here, repeated punishment every time the skins are roasted through, they will be replaced. Why? Because denial, their crime is denial, disbelief, and disbelief or denial is something that is repeated in different ways. They rejected Allah. Then they rejected the messenger. Then they rejected his book, not just once, but in

01:16:35--> 01:17:19

many ways. Over and over. we seen the previous verses how their mockery is mentioned, their aversion is mentioned there turning other people away from Islam as mentioned there twisting the words of ALLAH is mentioned. And this is why the punishment won't just be once, but it will be repeated, because remember this rule, and Joseph woman Jensen amahl. The recompense is similar to the deed itself. But those who believe and do righteous deeds. What a contrast, Allah says, We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow were in, they abide forever for them. They're in our purified spouses, and we will admit them to deepening shade Subhan Allah, in the La Jolla Moodle

01:17:19--> 01:17:30

calm and to adult Amana de la liga. Indeed, Allah commands you to render trusts to whom they are due. Meaning when you have to give an amount of

01:17:31--> 01:18:18

a responsibility, then give it to the people who are worthy of it. People who are worthy of fulfilling it, carrying its responsibility, not those whom you like, or those whom you want to do a favor to. And if someone interests you, with an Amana, with their property, for example, or irresponsibility, then you preserve it, you guard it, and then you hand it over when you're asked because Allah is telling us unto a dual amanat. And when you judge between people to judge with justice, any don't favor someone just because you like them, or because you owe it to them. No, be just and fair. Excellent. Is that which Allah instruct excellent is that which Allah instructs you

01:18:18--> 01:19:00

mean in this instruction that Allah has given us excellent, and this is what will lead to prosperity? Indeed, Allah is Ever hearing and seeing, yeah, you are Latina, armano I'll clean your illa Huwa aku you're a soul. All you will have believed, obey Allah and obey the messenger, what will um remain calm and those in authority among you, meaning those who are appointed as leaders, whether this is in the family, or it is in an organization, in any capacity, someone who is in a position of authority, then you must obey them. And if you disagree over anything, then refer to Allah and the messenger. Why because the final authority rests with them. So obedience to the leader

01:19:00--> 01:19:39

will only be in obedience to Allah and His Messenger, which means that if the leader is telling you to do something wrong, then you don't obey them, you will be alone the messenger, you will voice your opinion, you will disagree with them, you will challenge them and you will bring them to the book of Allah. If you should believe in Allah and the Last Day, that is the best way and best in result, or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you and what was revealed before you they wish to refer legislation to pohutu while they were commanded to reject it, and shaitan wishes to lead them far astray. And when

01:19:39--> 01:19:59

it is said to them come to what Allah has revealed and to the messenger, you see the hypocrites turning away from you in a version. You see the hypocrites in Medina, when they did not want the judgment of the Quran, when they did not want the judgment of the Prophet sallallahu earlier send them and why is that so? Because that

01:20:00--> 01:20:45

Judgment, that decision, that ruling did not suit them. What would they do? They would leave the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and take their disputes to someone else to solve, even though they claim to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or they claim to believe in the Scripture, instead of taking the ruling that the scripture gives, they would go to other people, why? because other people would give them what their hearts desired. of us. panatela says okay for either asaba to mostly baton. So how will it be when disaster strikes them because of what their hands have put forth. And then they come to you swearing By Allah, we intended nothing but good

01:20:45--> 01:21:33

conduct and accommodation, we had a very good intention, our intention was pure. Now here we learn another important lesson. And that is the fact that many times a person is troubled by difficulty, because of their own sins, and because of disobedience to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So in times of hardship, because you see it says either asaba to mostly Bhutan, a disaster strikes them. And there is a reason for that disaster. So when a person is facing a hardship, then what should they do? They should repent to Allah, our bus throw the Allahu anhu he prayed, or Allah, no tribulation descends, except because of a sin. And it is not removed except by repentance. So if we

01:21:33--> 01:22:17

are experiencing any hardship in our lives, then it is necessary that we make Toba to Allah, we repent to Allah, we seek forgiveness from Allah. And remember that the time of tribulation is not the time of entertainment. Because this is what some of us have done. We have busied ourselves inside our homes, just having fun entertaining ourselves, watching one movie after the other, watching one TV show after the other. So this is not time for entertainment, this is time to repent to Allah subhanaw taala those are the ones of whom Allah knows what is in their hearts, so turn away from them, but admonish them and speak to them a far reaching word. Well, my arcelormittal

01:22:17--> 01:23:05

Assouline. eleuthero, rb is Neela. And we did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah. So the fact is that a prophet is to be obeyed, not ignored, not disobeyed. And if when they wronged themselves, they had come to you, and asked forgiveness of Allah and the messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance, and merciful. But no, by your Lord, they will not truly believe until they make you will Prophet, a judge concerning that over which the dispute among themselves, and then find within themselves, no discomfort from what you have judged, and submit, in full, willing submission. This is a requirement

01:23:05--> 01:23:43

of a man, that we don't just believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that we accept everything that he taught, we accept the decisions that he made. And if we had decreed upon them, that kill yourselves or leave your homes, they would not have done it, except for a few of them. But if they had done what they were instructed, it would have been better for them and a firmer position. So you see, the first thing we learned in this ayah is that whatever that Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do, is not impossible. So we should not dislike it, we should not be averse to it, because Allah has not commanded us that we kill ourselves. He hasn't he has not

01:23:43--> 01:24:28

commanded us that we leave everything. No, the commands that Allah has given us are very realistic, very practical, we are able to follow them. And then we learn that this is well unknown Farah Luma you are going to be if they had done what they were instructed to do, then that would have been better for them. And it would have made them firmer, which shows us that when a person acts by their knowledge, then Allah subhanaw taala increases them in their knowledge also, Allah subhanaw taala teaches them what they previously did not know. And by that Allah subhanaw taala also gives them firmness and stability in good things. And then we would have given them from us a great reward and

01:24:28--> 01:24:59

we would have guided them to a straight path. So remember, using what Allah has given you of knowledge is a way of showing gratitude and gratitude yields increase. When if a person does not act on their knowledge, then that knowledge is lost, then a person loses it. In fact, that knowledge becomes detrimental. So if you hadn't been arena said if knowledge does not benefit you, it will actually harm you. When my filter Illa Howard Rasool and whoever obeys Allah and them

01:25:00--> 01:25:44

messenger, whoever puts that knowledge into action for hula ikoma alladhina anomala who are lay him, those will be with the ones whom Allah has bestowed favor upon, and who are they? They are the prophets, the steadfast firmers of truth, this would be a pain that you had that the martyrs and the sila hain the righteous and excellent are those as companions. What a What a great company this will be what an excellent companionship this will be. But this is for who those who obey Allah and the messenger Allah who made your loving home Valley call for Lumina Allah that is the bounty from Allah Waka fabula. Here I Lima and sufficient is Allah as nor

01:25:45--> 01:26:35

Yeah, you have Medina amanu. All you who have believed who do Hydra come take your precaution and either go forth in companies or go forth all together. Remember that the Muslims in Medina were constantly under attack. So they were, they were instructed over here to be vigilant, to be careful to take their precaution. So remember, when you fear a real threat, when a threat is real, then you must take your precaution, then you cannot be careless over there. Believing in Allah and relying upon him, doesn't mean that a person becomes careless, no, whoa, Hendra can take your precaution, do those things which are necessary to protect yourself to protect your health, your safety, your well

01:26:35--> 01:27:16

being, we're in them in koulamallah you Berkeley and and indeed, there is among you, He who lingers behind meaning there are people who are lazy, who stall who don't obey right away, who don't go forth in the way of Allah right away, they delay as much as possible. And if disaster strikes you, meaning you suffer some loss, he says Allah has favored me in that I was not present with them. 100 Allah I was not there. This is what they say. The Muslims are suffering, and will and what does he say? Alhamdulillah was not there the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm suffered. And he says Alhamdulillah was not there. When in asaba, conferred lumen Allah. But if bounty comes to you from

01:27:16--> 01:27:59

Allah, meaning Allah gives you success, some victory, He will surely say, as if there had never been between you and him any affection, Oh, I wish I had been with them. So I could have attained a great attainment, meaning this person is not really in the way of Allah. He is only out for personal gain. And this is something we need to ask ourselves that when we do something religious, what is the intention? Is it just personal gain? Is it to become famous? Is it to make some money? Is it to impress some people? What is it for you cartel Fie, Sabine. Illa. So that those fight in the cause of Allah, who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter, meaning when you do something good, do

01:27:59--> 01:28:22

it for the sake of Allah only, and he who fights in the cause of Allah, and is killed or achieves victory, we will bestow upon him a great reward. And what is the matter with you, that you fight not in the cause of Allah, and for the oppressed among men, and for the, and for the oppressed among men, women and children who say, Our Lord, take us out of the city.

01:28:23--> 01:29:06

Our Lord, take us out of the city of oppressive people, and appoint for us from yourself a protector, and appoint for us from yourself a helper, those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of the hoot. So fight against the allies of shaitan. Indeed, the plot of shaitan has ever been weak. So be firm and do your best. So what do we see in these ayat that a believer cannot just sit back and take it easy and focus on their own comfort? No, we have to be concerned about the greater good. We have to be concerned about the people who are being oppressed in different places. Sometimes in our own families, sometimes in our own cities, we

01:29:06--> 01:29:08

must become a voice for the voiceless.

01:29:10--> 01:29:57

And I'm Tara Isla, Lena kilala home, Have you not seen those people who were told, Khufu, adea calm restrain your hands, meaning from fighting? You see, the Muslims were not allowed to fight at the beginning meaning to participate in battle, even though they were being persecuted. They were not allowed to raise weapons to defend themselves or to take revenge. What were they told instead, and established prayer and gives the cat now this was a very important trading period. And then this is a huge lesson for us that our first response to every trial should not be to you know, fight back. It should be to turn to Allah first. And every conflict is not solved with violence and

01:29:57--> 01:29:59

confrontation. There are other ways

01:30:00--> 01:30:44

The Muslims in Makkah were told pray Salah focus on Salah gives a cat. And remember that salah and the cat, these are two ways of fighting the nerves. So the first thing to do before any other is to fight your own self to discipline your own self. You see some people they become very emotional when it comes to Islam and the first thing they want to do is just pick up a gun pick up a knife, pick up a weapon, and go kill you know the enemy. What we learn over here is that the first thing to do is to discipline yourself a claim of solid will or to zakat. Aqui masala established the five daily prayers What does that mean? discipline your knifes if you cannot leave your bed at fudger time,

01:30:44--> 01:31:25

then what are you talking about fighting the enemy? discipline yourself first discipline your ego first your desires first and after the cat give be a giver. Instead of fighting people think about what you can give them focus on generosity. But then what happened later, when when fighting was ordained for them meaning later on in Medina when the Muslims were commanded to fight the enemy at once a party of them feared men as they feared Allah or with even greater fear, meaning they were afraid they did not want to fight. They said Our Lord, why have you decreed upon us fighting? If only you had postponed it for us for a short time? Allah subhanaw taala says Cole Matera dunya

01:31:25--> 01:32:18

khaleel say the enjoyment of this world is little and the Hereafter is better for he who fears Allah and injustice will not be done to you even as much as a threat inside a date seat suparna Allah. Remember, no matter what you get in this life, it is little, it is not as good as what Allah subhanaw taala has stored in the hereafter. So don't just be greedy for what you can get right now. Don't settle for less, be eager for what is more, what is greater seek Allah's approval, no matter kuno wherever you may be, you direct Komal mode, death will overtake you, Willow, quantum feeble rugi Masha yada, even if you should be within towers of lofty construction, because the angel of

01:32:18--> 01:32:58

death will reach there also. There is nothing that can keep the Angel of Death out. There is nothing that can that can block him out. No, he will certainly come and take you away when it is time. So death is coming. Prepare for it. But if God comes to them, they say this is from Allah, and if evil befalls them, they said this is from you. They blame the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for their losses. And there are some people who will blame Islam, they will blame their fasting, they will blame their Salah. They will blame the fact that they're Muslim. Say all things are from Allah. So what is the matter with those people that they can hardly understand any statement. So this is

01:32:58--> 01:33:43

the trait of the hypocrites, that they don't understand the word of Allah. They don't understand the decrees of Allah. May Allah protect us masaba come in haseltine Femina, Allah, whatever comes to you have good is from Allah, woman, or Saba come and say he attained from enough sick, but what comes to you of evil is from yourself. And this doesn't mean that we have to blame ourselves and just drown in guilt. This means that we have the ability to change our condition. Because if a mistake a wrongdoing on our part, caused the difficulty, then that means that we could remove the cause, and then the difficulty will go away. It means that we do have control over our situation. We're not

01:33:43--> 01:34:26

just victims, we're also luckily nasty Rasulullah and we have sent to you or Prophet sallallahu earlier send them to the people as a messenger. And sufficient is Allah as witness. He who he who obeys the messenger has, in fact obeyed Allah, but those who turn away we have not sent you over them as a guardian. And they say we pledge obedience. This is the hypocrites, but when they leave you, a group of them spend the night determining to do other than what you say. But Allah records what they planned by night. So lb Allah, you see the hypocrites what they will do is that in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they would say yes, yes, of course, yes, far, we will do

01:34:26--> 01:34:59

this, but then immediately that but then as soon as they would leave the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they will begin criticizing the decision of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they will start mocking and backbiting and objecting. span Allah. If we are ever consulted in regard to something and an agreement is made with consultation, then stick to the plan. Stick to the decision, even if you don't agree with it. If it is religiously wrong, that is different. But if it's just a different opinion than yours,

01:35:00--> 01:35:34

Do not oppose the jamara do not leave the congregation and avoid this reprehensible behavior that before the people in the meeting during the discussion you are quiet and then after it is over at home or with like minded people, now you start backbiting and criticizing the entire group. If you believe in something different, say it, disagree voice your opinion, but there is a time and place for it. Once you get up from that gathering, then call us because Allah Al majali. So Amana gatherings are an Amana. They're a trust.

01:35:36--> 01:36:23

So leave them alone and rely upon Allah and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs fellow at the Brunello Quran, then do they not reflect upon the Quran? We are being asked over here. And through this question, we are actually being reprimanded that what is wrong with you? Why don't you reflect upon the Quran, you must reflect upon the Quran. And if it had been from any other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction, you see that the book is to go into the depths of the meanings of the Quran, it is to reflect upon the meanings of the Quran, why in order to take lesson from it, in order to bring theory into practice. So reflect on the Quran, dive into its meanings, so

01:36:23--> 01:37:08

that you know for sure that yes, this is qalamoun law. Yes, this is isononyl Kalam vaccinal Hadees. And you develop your theme has an unbundled he said that the Quran was revealed, so that it may be reflected upon and acted by. But people have taken its recitation as action, meaning people think it is enough to just recite it. Even taymiyah said that whoever reflects upon the Quran, seeking guidance from it, than the way of truth will become clear to him, only then the Huck will become clear to him. So if we want guidance from the Quran, then we must reflect upon it. And when there comes to them information about public security or fear, they spread it around, this was the way of

01:37:08--> 01:37:53

the hypocrites that they would spread news, especially worrying troubling news very quickly. And when such information is, you know, passed around people, you know, they add their spices to it to make it more exciting to make it more shocking. And then the truth is mixed with falsehood, things are blown out of proportion, conspiracies arise, and then people are not able to distinguish between what is true and what is untrue. And because of this, so many people suffer, and we can see in you know, this day and age also how because of you know false information, fake news, right being spread so quickly amongst people. No, there are people who believe that any Coronavirus is being spread

01:37:53--> 01:38:35

through 3g you need this is ridiculous. This is an insult the people who are losing their lives. So ever. So whenever we hear such things, what is our responsibility? Almost palitana tells us over here, but if they had referred it back to the messenger, or to those of authority among them, meaning ascertain first, is it even true, then the ones who can draw correct conclusions from it would have known about it, meaning lead those in authority, lead those of knowledge, make the announcements, no one has hired you as the town crier. So you don't need to spread news all the time. And this is something that we should be very careful about. Because some of us we have taken

01:38:35--> 01:39:17

it as our responsibility that you know any piece of information that we hear that we receive, we must forward it to the world right and put it in every whatsapp group and forward it to everybody in your you know in your contact list. This is the month of Ramadan, the time of ibadah Please let us focus on the vicar of Allah. Let us focus on the Quran on return on the recitation of the Quran. Let us read more Quran and less of WhatsApp messages seriously. Let us listen to more Quran and listen to less of you know these random videos that are based on false information fake information, any use your time wisely.

01:39:18--> 01:39:59

For cartel visibility, led to colorful illusion of suck the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is instructed over here. So fight in the cause of Allah. You are not held responsible except for yourself. Meaning you must do something even if nobody is with you. Lead by example, by action. Don't just preach but practice also. And encourage the believers meaning to join you that perhaps Allah will restrain the military might have those who disbelieve and Allah is greater in might and stronger in exemplary punishment. My as far chifa Arthur has sent a 10 year cola hoonah Cebu minha

Whoever intercedes for good cause will have a reward there from and whoever intercedes for an evil cause will have a burden there from And ever is Allah over all things a keeper. This is a very important thing. interceding for a good cause means to advocate for someone so that they can get some benefit or the conflict that they're that they have with someone gets resolved and advocating for someone interceding for someone also includes making door offer them. My Yes, Varsha Farrington, hustler Shuafat, and Hassan includes all of these things, making peace between people resolving their conflict, making their offer them requesting, making a request on their behalf so that they

01:40:44--> 01:41:27

can get some benefit. And interceding for a bad cause means causing dissension among people spreading gossip, aggravating conflict, right or advocating for sinful wrong causes. And this is it shows us the importance of advocacy for good causes for people who are not able to advocate for themselves that if Allah has given you a voice, the ability to you know, use your platform or a place of influence, then use that to give voice to those who are not being heard. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said and said his federal fund to geroux intercede and earn reward. And at the same time be careful because if you become an advocate for something sinful for something that is

01:41:27--> 01:42:12

unjust, then the guilt of all who follow you will also be on you will either who used to be the hay yet in and when you are greeted with a greeting then greet in return with one that is better than it or at least return it Indeed Allah is Ever over all things and accountant so say Salaam spread the salon, because saying Salah means praying for someone safety security their well being that a Sarah more Aleikum, may you be free from worry May you be safe from grief from any hardship from any loss, this is a drop. And remember that saying Salaam to one another. This creates an air of safety. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said officious Salaam de slomo spread Salaam and you will be

01:42:12--> 01:42:50

safe, which is why we should say Salaam to one another even at home. You see sometimes we reserve the greeting of Salaam just for strangers. But for people that we are living with our own spouse, our own children when we meet them first thing in the morning when we see them we don't say Salaam so we should say Salaam of should Salaam, the slum and and saying Salaam is one of those things that brings about forgiveness by through Salaam and there is reward for saying set up. It's a way of increasing love. It's a way of increasing a man. And remember that a person who does not even say why they call center, then they're truly stingy. It is a sign of their book.

01:42:52--> 01:43:23

Allah, there is no deity except Him, He will surely assemble you for account on the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt and who is more truthful than Allah in statement. Then it is said What is the matter with you that you are two groups concerning the hypocrites. While Allah has made them fall back for what they earned? Do you wish to guide those whom Allah has sent a stray and he whom Allah sends a stray? Never will you find for him a way of guidance, these hypocrites they wish.

01:43:24--> 01:44:04

These hypocrites wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved. So you would be alike, so do not take from them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them. And take not from among them any ally or helper, meaning if an if on the outward, they say that they're with you, but then they come to fight you, then you have to take you have to give preference to their actions over their words, because actions speak louder than words. If they're treating you as an enemy, then you also have to treat them as an enemy. Except for those who take refuge with the people between yourselves and whom is a treaty, or

01:44:04--> 01:44:42

those who come to you, their hearts strained at the prospect of fighting you or fighting their own people beating some people just don't have that choice. And if Allah had willed, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you. So if they remove themselves from you, and do not fight you and offer you peace, then Allah has not made for you a cause for fighting against them. You will find other hypocrites who wish to obtain security from you and to obtain security from their people. Every time they're returned to the influence of disbelief, they fall back into it. So if they do not withdraw from you, or offer you peace, or restrain their hands, then seize

01:44:42--> 01:44:59

them and kill them wherever you overtake them, meaning them they're your enemy. So that is how you should treat them. And those we have made for you against them. A clear authorization woman can only move meaning. A Jaco Tula meenan illa. Hopper and never it is for a believer to kill it.

01:45:00--> 01:45:14

believer except by mistake, meaning a believer can only kill another believer by accident, never on purpose. This is something that cannot be any allowed or expected it does not befit a believer.

01:45:16--> 01:46:01

And whoever kills a believer by mistake than the freeing of a believing slave and a compensation and a compensation payment presented to the deceased family, you need two things are needed. Firstly, a person has to free a slave. And secondly, they have to give the DHEA the blood money to the heirs of the victim, unless they give us charity, meaning the heirs a pardon the killer. But if the deceased was from a people at war with you, and he was a believer, then only the freeing of a believing slave, meaning the no blood money, and if he was from a people with whom you have a treaty than a compensation payment, presented his family and the freeing of a believing slave and whoever does not

01:46:01--> 01:46:45

find then instead, if asked for two months consecutively, like for example these days, any a person cannot free a slave. But if accidentally they kill another Muslim, what are they supposed to do, they cannot free a slave. So another option is given fast for two months consecutively. This means that if a person misses one fast, then they have to start the two months of fasting all over again, non stop fasting every day. This is the expiation for involuntary manslaughter. Because remember, this is a violation against Allah and against human beings, seeking acceptance of repentance from Allah and Allah is Ever knowing and wise, but whoever kills a believer intentionally on purpose than

01:46:45--> 01:47:29

his recompenses hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment, so never even think about committing this evil. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us that everything belonging to a believer is sacred. His honor, his blood and his property, the entire believer is sacred. Yeah, are you Halina amanu all you who have believed when you go forth to fight in the cause of Allah, then investigate and do not say to one who gives you a greeting of peace, that you're not a believer, aspiring for the goods of worldly life. For with Allah are many acquisitions. What happened was that there was a

01:47:29--> 01:48:12

shepherd, outside of Medina. And when the Muslims saw him, the shepherd said Salaam to them. But the Muslims thought that this man was actually a spy or something. And the his saying Salaam was just to, you know, protect his life. So they fought him. And that Shepherd died in the process and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam became very upset with the companions. And this idea was also revealed that when someone says Salaam to you, they say that they're a Muslim, you have to accept their outward because their Liquor Control min cobble you yourselves were like that before, then Allah conferred his great favor upon you. So investigate, Indeed, Allah is Ever with what you do

01:48:12--> 01:48:55

acquainted. The thing is that we should never forget our past, we should remember how we used to be the mistakes that we used to make, because sometimes we're very quick to pass judgment on others, and to, you know, penalize them and to be and we become very harsh with them. So be tolerant, think about yourself. Think about how many times you made the very mistakes that you see your children making, be forgiving. And instead of constantly, you know, being harsh with people, create a safe space for them, so that they're allowed to make mistakes, and then they're allowed to learn from their mistakes. Our problem is we don't kill people, but we hurt them so much. We insult them so

01:48:55--> 01:49:04

much, that we literally kill them from the inside, we damage their personality. And this is something that we have to be very careful about.

01:49:06--> 01:49:10

Then it is said not equal are those believers remaining at home

01:49:11--> 01:49:50

other than the disabled, and the Mujahideen who strive and fight in the cause of Allah who with their wealth and their lives. One is a person who is sitting at home focusing on their personal life. And there's another person who is striving in the way of Allah striving for the religion of Allah. Of course, both people since their effort is different, their work is different, their levels will also be different near Allah. Allah has preferred the Mujahideen through their wealth and their lives over those who remain behind by degrees there is a difference of many degrees between them. And to both Allah has promised the best reward, but Allah has preferred the Mujahideen over those

01:49:50--> 01:49:59

who remain behind with a great reward. The Raj Chetty Minh who Amalfi ratangarh Hema degrees of high position from him and forgiveness.

01:50:00--> 01:50:40

Mercy and Allah is Ever Forgiving and Merciful. And this is why each and every one of us should think about how can I serve the deen of Allah? How can I help? You know serve Allah? What can I do, even if it's just a difference of a drop that I can make, that I can perhaps share something good with someone, any any effort that I can make for the cause of Allah, I should take that as an honor, I should take that as a great opportunity. Indeed, those whom the angels taken death, while wronging themselves the angels will say in what condition were you they will say we were oppressed in the land, the angels will say, was not the earth of Allah spacious enough for you to emigrate there in

01:50:41--> 01:51:27

for those there refuges, hell and evil it is as a destination, except for the oppressed among men, women and children who cannot devise a plan, nor are they directed to away. For those It is expected that Allah will pardon them. And Allah is Ever pardoning and forgiving, and whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth, many alternative locations and abundance and whoever leaves his home as an immigrant to Allah and His Messenger, and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent on Allah, and Allah is Ever forgiving, and merciful. So we see that the place or the space, where you end up disobeying Allah subhanaw taala, where you find it hard to

01:51:27--> 01:52:16

control yourself, or you have no option but to violate the limits that Allah has set, then you must leave that place, you must move away from that space with dignity. This is also a form of digital will mohajir Oh, man, hedgerow man, man holla who and who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the immigrant is the one who immigrates from what Allah has forbidden him from. So yes, hedra at times means that you have to move from one city to another like the Sahaba made hedra. But sometimes, hijra is also deleting a certain app on your phone. Sometimes hedra is unfollowing certain pages on social media because you know that every time you open that app, every time you you

01:52:16--> 01:52:34

know, open that page, you end up looking at something wrong, you end up listening to something wrong, and that is leading you away from Allah. And don't fear scarcity, because there is an abundance of good things out there. There is an abundance of better options out there, but you won't find them until he goes search for them.

01:52:36--> 01:53:16

And when you travel throughout the land, there is no blame upon you for shortening the prayer. If you fear that those who disbelieve may disrupt or attack you, indeed, the disbelievers are ever to you a clear enemy. So remember that at the beginning Salah was shortened during travel because of the fear that the Muslims faced everywhere outside of Medina. But remember that this is an allowance, a gift that Allah subhanaw taala extended beyond that, and this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would shorten his prayers in all of his travels even after the conquest of Makkah. So shortening the prayer while traveling is actually his Sunnah. Now the manner of the

01:53:16--> 01:53:55

fear prayer is mentioned. And when you are among them and leave them in prayer, let a group of them stand in prayer with you and let them carry their arms and when they have prostrated, let them be in position behind you, and have the other group come forward which has not yet prayed and let them pray with you taking precaution and carrying their weapons. Those who disbelieve wish that you would neglect your weapons and your baggage, so they could come down upon you in one single attack. But there is no blame upon you. If you are troubled by rain or are ill for putting down your weapons. But take precaution. Indeed, Allah has prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment.

01:53:55--> 01:54:37

There's a number of benefits over here. You see, even if during Salah one is supposed to be vigilant, meaning on guard, because you seen the fear prayer, the Muslims are told to carry their weapons. So for example, in the middle of a battle, or when there's a risk of an attack, then the the Muslims should not just pray carelessly, now they should pray in this manner that is described in this ayah and they should carry their weapons. So if in Salah you have to be vigilant, then what do you think about other situations? Remember praying at home these days and not in the masjid, this is all part of precaution and we should not feel guilty. We should not feel bad because this is

01:54:37--> 01:54:59

something that Allah subhanaw taala has taught us to take the necessary precaution. And also this shows us that if in a situation like extreme fear, extreme danger, Salah cannot be left. This means that we cannot leave Salah for what is less than that. Unfortunately, sometimes we delay our Salah or we completely leave it alone over worldly things.

01:55:00--> 01:55:42

Party issues. So this is something that we have to be careful about. And when you have completed the prayer, then remember Allah standing, sitting or lying on your sides. But when you become secure than re establish regular prayers being then pray in the regular manner. Indeed, prayer has been decreed upon the believers a decree of specified times, meaning there are fixed times for Salah, so we cannot delay all of our prayers and just perform all of them just before we sleep. No, we must perform Salah on time. Well, after he knew Liberty law, he will come and do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy. Why? Because if you should be suffering, if it is hard, so are they suffering as you're

01:55:42--> 01:56:26

suffering, but you expect from Allah that which they do not expect? So strive, as a seeker of general should strive and Allah is Ever knowing, and wise. You see, there are people who strived so hard for their worldly goals, who worked so hard for their short term goals? Then what about the people who want the agenda of eternity? Who want the home of the hereafter? Should we not exert ourselves? You know, when the when the month of Ramadan comes, then an announcement is made that your belly and Lady a couple, that oh seeker of good come forward? This is the time when you rush when you exert extra effort in doing good in seeking your, your your Lord's pleasure. So don't be

01:56:26--> 01:57:11

lazy over here and just look out there how much effort people exert for their worldly goals, you should also do something in under lurker like Al Kitab. Indeed, We have revealed to you the book in truth, why so you may judge between the people by that which Allah has shown you, and do not be for the deceitful and advocate. So before you advocate for someone, before you support them, make sure that what they're doing is right was don't fiddle and seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Ever Forgiving and Merciful, and do not argue on behalf of those who deceive themselves. Indeed, Allah loves not one who is a habitually sinful deceiver. So people who are very deceptive, and

01:57:11--> 01:57:54

people whose deception becomes known, then don't advocate for them because they're not believable. They're not believable. Be cautious. Yes, the phone Amina nurse, they conceal from the people, they try to hide their evil intention, intentions from the people, but they cannot conceal from a law. And this is for everybody. No one can hide from a law. And he is with them, when they spend the night in such as he does not accept of speech, meaning when people are saying wrong things, even in a very private setting, in the privacy of their home. Allah subhanaw taala is listening. He knows what we are saying And ever is Allah of what they do encompassing here you are those who argue on

01:57:54--> 01:58:38

their behalf in this worldly life, but who will argue with Allah for them on the day of judgment? Or who will then be their representative? You see, sometimes we side with certain individuals, even though we know that they are in the wrong? Why do we side with them, just because their family or their friends? You know, for example, we see a clear injustice in our own household where we see for instance, that our brother or our son is mistreating his wife, or we see for example, that our husband is not being good to his mother. So why is it now that we're just going to side with the people that we like, be just over there because while you may defend them right now, who is going to

01:58:38--> 01:59:05

defend them before Allah, this is not love. Love is that you help them recognize their mistake, that you protect them, you save them, you stop them. When a yarmulke Tzu and and whoever does a wrong or wrongs himself, but then seeks forgiveness of Allah will find Allah Forgiving and Merciful. So the fact is that everybody makes mistakes. But what is needed is that we seek forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada.

01:59:06--> 01:59:50

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that any Muslim who commits a sin then makes Voodoo and performs to dakara and asks Allah for forgiveness than Allah who will certainly forgive him for that. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited this ayah. So we should also seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. And whoever commits a sin only earns it against himself, and Allah is Ever knowing and wise, but whoever earns an offense or a sin, and then blames it on an innocent person, to preserve his own self image to save himself of guilt. What does he do? He blames someone else than such a person. Even if he gets away with it. He has taken upon himself his lender

01:59:50--> 02:00:00

and manifest sin. And if it was an if it was not for the favor of Allah upon you and his mercy, a group of them would have determined to mislead

02:00:00--> 02:00:40

They do, but they do not mislead except themselves, and they will not harm you at all. Because you see some people that came to the Prophet sallallahu recently regarding one of their personal disputes, and the person who was guilty, convinced the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or at least tried to, you know, with his, with his eloquence, he tried to portray himself as someone very innocent. So Allah subhanaw taala protected His Messenger over here by revealing the truth. So it shows us that just because someone is very eloquent, and they're very persistent, it doesn't mean that we accept everything that they say, we have to look beyond the words. And Allah has revealed to

02:00:40--> 02:01:21

you the book and wisdom, and has taught you that which you did not know, and ever has the favor of Allah upon you been great. The fact is that someone who has given the Quran, any portion of the Quran, someone who learns something about the Quran that they previously did not know, this is truly Allah's fuddle Allah's favor upon them, no good is there in much of their private conversation. This is about the hypocrites, because and in general, also, if you think about it, when people, you know, have their private conversations, they're whispering to each other, what kind of conversations are these, it's either a waste of time or it's sin. Rarely is it for a good cause. So this shows that we

02:01:21--> 02:02:03

shouldn't do this, that much, we should avoid it, except for those who enjoy charity, or that which is right, or conciliation between people. And whoever does that seeking means to the approval of Allah, then we are going to give him a great reward. So this shows us that when we are in public, then we should not whisper amongst ourselves, excluding some people, because it makes those individuals feel left out. And they feel suspicious. They think that they're being spoken about in a negative way. And remember that everything does not have to be said privately, in the ears of people. Why are we so afraid that we always need to whisper you know, if something is truth, if it

02:02:03--> 02:02:40

is fair, then have no shame and have no guilt in openly saying it. But at times, we see that whispering is actually good when the exceptions are mentioned over here, when there is a matter of sadaqa. So for example, someone whispers into the ear of another to give sadaqa Why do they whisper because if they were to say it out loud, and others found out, then you know he would feel embarrassed, or the person to whom the charity is going to be given, they would feel embarrassed. Likewise, the second thing is when someone whispers into the ear of another to do something maruf something good. So for example, you want to remind your, you know, son to eat with the right hand.

02:02:40--> 02:03:24

And if you say to him in front of everybody, he will feel embarrassed. So if you go whisper to him eat with your right hand, then that is excellent. And then also for Islam between people reconciling them. And that is also something that is greatly virtuous, and whoever opposes the messenger, after guidance has become clear to him, and follows other than the way of the believers, we will give him what he has taken and drive him into hell and evil it is as a destination. This shows that we should stick to the congregation. Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with him, but he forgives what is less than that for whom He wills and he who and he who associates others with Allah has certainly

02:03:24--> 02:03:46

gone far astray. This is why it is so important for us to learn what Schick is so that we can avoid it. Because remember, schicke is a major sin, a sin that is unforgivable. And remember that the good deeds of a mushnik will not be accepted. In a Hades we learned that the gates of Paradise are opened on Mondays and on Thursdays. And every servant

02:03:47--> 02:03:51

who associates nothing with Allah is forgiven.

02:03:52--> 02:04:39

So who has not forgiven them, those who associate others with Allah, except for the man who has a grudge against his brother about them, it is said delay these two until they're reconciled. In their own I mean dooney illa in earth, they call upon instead of him none but female deities goddesses, and they actually call upon none but a rebellious che Pon and there is no reality to these idols. And when a person worships anyone other than Allah, in reality, they're worshipping the shaitan, who was trained on Liana who law whom Allah has cursed, will call Allah at the heathen Amina, everybody can asleep on my robot, for he had said I will surely take from among your servants, his specific

02:04:39--> 02:04:59

portion. Remember shaitan has taken an oath not just one multiple oaths to mislead mankind to harm them. So it is necessary that we are on guard that we are careful, we recognize this enemy and we take this enemy as an enemy

02:05:00--> 02:05:14

We don't forget about this enemy, we don't become oblivious to this enemy, even claim said that aware of shaitan is that he smells the knifes of a person until he knows which trait is more firm in him.

02:05:16--> 02:06:00

Meaning what are his strengths? What are his weaknesses? This is what shaitan first checks, right? He checks whether, you know a person is more firm, or he is lazy. So if he sees that a person has weakness and lack of courage, meaning he's lazy, then triathlons tries to make him firm in that meaning he tries to make him more and more lazy, to weaken his resolve, and to make him weak hearted regarding what he is commanded to do, and make it very heavy on him. So he finds it easy to just leave it completely. So then he ends up abandoning the good or becomes negligent in it and becomes lazy. And if he sees that a person has the strength of firm will, because some people you know,

02:06:00--> 02:06:48

they're they're very strong in their determination, they have deep resolve, then he tells him, that this is not good enough, you know, what you're doing is not good enough, you need to do what is different. And then a person burdens himself with what he cannot handle, a person goes on taking more and more upon themselves to a point that they break. This is also one of the tricks of shaitan, that he either makes us very lazy, if we're already prone to being lazy. Or, if we are very committed, you know, we are very energetic, we exert effort, we are hardworking, than shaitan, he tells us that what we're doing is not good enough, that we need to do more. And so we keep exerting

02:06:48--> 02:07:29

and exerting until we are no longer able to do anything. So be wary of the tricks of shaitan and say, are all the Billahi min, Ash shaytani r rajim. Any time a negative thought comes to your head, well, it will be Lennar home. Well, Omen, Nia na home. While there are more on the home, he said, and I will mislead them. And I will arouse in them sinful desires, and I will commend them, so they will slit the ears of cattle. And the Arabs would do that, to dedicate their animals to the idols, and I will commend them. So they will change the creation of a law people will not be satisfied with the way that Allah Spano Tata has created them, they will want to change themselves.

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

And this is so true, where it's amazing how a woman is not even satisfied with the shape of her eyebrows. So even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam clearly cursed the, you know, the women who do this, a woman will still do it. And then we see that people are not satisfied with the shape of their nose, they're not satisfied with the shape of their face. And then people will change the creation, that Allah subhana wa tada has made them in. And then this goes on to even changing one's gender and things like that. Whoever takes shape plan as an ally, instead of Allah has certainly sustained a clear loss. This is why we see that there's no end to it, you know, people

02:08:08--> 02:08:41

will get stuck in this habit where they keep modifying their body, there is no end to it. Yari. To Whom were you money, him shaitan promises them and arouses desire in them. He makes them believe that you know what, just this one change of colors colors, just just a little bit. And that's it. No, no, no, it's not going to be that said there is going to be something else after that. But che plan does not promise them except delusion. So the thing is, that che plan makes sinful things very attractive, and che upon presents the truth as false and false hood as truth to us.

02:08:43--> 02:09:28

This is why so Fianna 30 he said that innovation bedarra is more beloved to a police than sin. Why? Because a sin is repented from when a person knows that they're committing a sin, eventually they will leave it or they will, perhaps they will leave it. But an innovation is not repented from when it comes to bigger a person believes they're doing something good. So why will they leave it? So remember, shaylen has his eyes on you. He's always after you to try to mislead you. And shaitan knows your weaknesses. We learn in the Hadees. But how when other one is that I was created to choke on went and observed the body the form. And he said that this is a creature that will not be able to

02:09:28--> 02:09:59

control his desire. Meaning shaytaan knows our weakness that we are weak before our desires. So shame upon comes to us through the door of desires. And this is why fasting is so important. Because when we're fasting, we're closing all those doors. We're closing all those gaps, all those means through which a Python app has access to us. Right she upon any we're not allowed to eat or drink any Why? What

02:10:00--> 02:10:49

What's the benefit? Because we are closing the way of shaitan we learn in a hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the tripod has a despaired that you will ever worship idols right meeting in Arabia. However, he is hopeful that you will do that which you belittle. Meaning he he, he tries to mislead you through sins that you belittle. So shippon belittles sins for us. So beware. Never say about us and Oh, it's so small. It's okay. What's the big deal? No, it is a big deal, because it's a sin against Allah. Allah ikawa home jahannam the refuge of those will be hell, and they will not find from it and escape. But the ones who believe and do righteous deeds, we will

02:10:49--> 02:11:36

admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow were in they will abide forever. It is the promise of Allah which is truth, and who is more truthful than Allah in statement. Paradise is not obtained by your wishful thinking, nor by that of the People of the Scripture. Whoever does wrong will be recompense for it, my yarmulke Tzu and you just be and he will not find besides Allah, a protector or a helper, and whoever does righteous deeds, whether male or female, while being a believer, those will enter Paradise and will not be wronged even as much as the speck on a date seed and who is better in religion than one who submits himself to Allah while being a doer of good. So we see that

02:11:36--> 02:12:26

the intention is good, and the action is good, and follows the religion of Ibrahim, the manner is good inclining toward truth, and Allah took Ibrahim as an intimate friend, what the herd Allahu Ibrahima Halima. Why is this being mentioned? Because we are encouraged to follow the wave Ibrahim arias center. We are being told that Ibrahim is Sam is a leader who is worth following. Why? Because he attained what the believer desires. he attained hula friendship of Allah subhanaw taala with the heart Allahu Ibrahim Halima and remember that this is the highest level of love. And how is it that Ibrahim is and I'm got that How did he attain that by being obedient to Allah subhana wa Tada. We

02:12:26--> 02:13:06

learned in the Quran about Ibrahim alayhis salaam, that it call it a hoorah boo, a slim submit, he said a slum to the rock pillar alameen I have submitted to the Lord of the worlds when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked what is Islam? He said a use Lima cup. He said I use Lima called bucola Allah heater Allah that you submit your heart to Allah what unto what g How would you Hakka a llama heater Allah and you direct your face to Allah? What does it mean? You submit to Allah, meaning you obey Him, when Allah says something when Allah commands us of something like bake Allahumma bake, when Allah has prohibited us from something, okay, my job I will leave it. This is

02:13:06--> 02:13:45

Islam. This is submission that your heart surrenders to Allah, and that you direct your face to Allah, meaning you make your focus your ultimate goal, the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. And whatever you do, you seek Allah, you see when you when you're doing something, for example, for someone, you're preparing some food, you think about them, but when a believer is doing something for Allah, he thinks about Allah. So this is what it means by unto What do you have when Shaka Illa Allah, when Allah Hema is somehow with you will never feel old, and to Allah belongs, whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is on the earth, and ever is a law of all things encompassing and the

02:13:45--> 02:14:25

request from you or profit, illegal ruling concerning women say, Allah gives you a ruling about them, and about what has been recited to you in the book concerning the orphan girls, to whom you do not give what is decreed for them. And yet you desire to marry them, and concerning the oppressed among children, and that you maintain for orphans, their rights, injustice, and whatever you do have good Indeed, Allah is Ever knowing of it. We see over here, that the orphans are mentioned that we should be concerned for their rights, and we should be just with them. And this is a responsibility upon all of us, that we should take care of the needs of the orphans and this Ramadan make the

02:14:25--> 02:14:59

intention to take care of some orphan, even if you can give some money, if you can send some money somewhere anywhere, so that an orphan is fed so that an orphan receives an IID gift perhaps do that participate in that were any more than half at min barley, her new shoes, and if a woman fears from her husband contempt or evasion and this happens sometimes that people are married, but they seem to be not interested in one another. And especially in the case of a woman this can be very difficult because now

02:15:00--> 02:15:44

Any what what option does she have. So, there is an allowance that is being given over here, which is that there is no sin upon them, if they make terms of settlement between them, and settlement is best and present and present in human souls is stinginess, but if you do good and fear Allah, then Indeed, Allah is Ever with what you do acquainted. So, the fact is, that in every relationship, there are differences, differences will always be there, but it is important to work on the solutions and not dwell on the problems. So, if there is ever a difference, a problem, men that solve the problem solve the conflict, and it is important to not just have expectations of the other

02:15:44--> 02:16:28

to not just be demanding from the other, but also be giving because a relationship is meant to be two ways. And whatever it is that you want from the other, for example, you want your spouse to become more, you know, you want them to listen to you start listening to them more, and also have realistic expectations. And in this ayah, we are told, soul is best. And you see, so, a compromise is settlement cannot be made unless and until there is communication. So communicate, communicate your expectations, communicate your wishes, your intentions, your goals, your hurt, don't just be a riddle, that the other person has to solve all the time. And you see, this is a weakness that is in

02:16:28--> 02:16:48

human beings, what little till emphasis should show greed is ever present in the hearts of people. What is the sure that a person is eager for good for themselves only, they don't want to give anything they just want to take. And this is present in human beings. And if we're honest with ourselves, many times we're acting on our show.

02:16:49--> 02:17:28

This is why we're told well my yoga shahana see for Ola, ecoman, muesli home, whoever is saved from the shores of himself, then such people are successful. And he will never be able to be equal in feeling between wives, even if you should strive to do so. So do not inclined completely toward one and leave another hanging meeting in the limbo. So she's neither treated like a wife, nor is she free to marry another. And if you amend your affairs and fear Allah, then Indeed Allah is Ever Forgiving and Merciful. The fact is that the matter of the heart is not always in a person's control, your emotions, your feelings are not always controllable. But what is controllable is your

02:17:28--> 02:18:07

actions what you do, but if they separate, Allah will enrich each of them from his abundance, and ever is Allah encompassing and wise, and to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And we have instructed those who are given the Scripture before you and yourselves to fear Allah, but if you disbelieve them to Allah belongs, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and ever is Allah free of need and praiseworthy, what Allah He manifest, some are worth you, Mr. Phil ARB, and to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs, if you will, he can do away with you or

02:18:07--> 02:18:55

people and bring others in your place, and ever is Allah competent to do that? Man can a UD do so Abba? dunya whoever desires the reward of this world than with Allah is the reward of this world and the hereafter. So the question is, what is it that you want? What is it that you desire? Allah is capable of giving both? What are you choosing And ever is Allah hearing and seeing so make your intentions sincere? And whatever you do, make a hero, your your goal, make the pleasure of Allah your ultimate goal? Yeah, are you Hello, Dina amanu, all you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it'd be against yourselves, or parents and

02:18:55--> 02:19:39

relatives, whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not personal inclination, lest you not be just and if you distort your testimony, or refuse to give it, then Indeed, Allah is Ever with what you do acquainted. So we're told in this idea that we should be just that we should stand for justice, and we should not follow the desire, especially if we are in a position of making judgment between people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there are three types of judges, one of whom will go to Jannah and two will go to help. The one who will go to Jenna is a man who knows what is right and gives judgment accordingly. So they learn and then they

02:19:39--> 02:20:00

make judgment, according to that knowledge. But a man who knows what is right and acts wrongfully in his judgment will go to hell. And a man who gives judgment for people when he's ignorant, will also go to hell. So be just in making decisions. And when you're making a decision, if you are in a position where you

02:20:00--> 02:20:27

You have to decide certain things then learn learn what is lawful and what is unlawful do not speak without knowledge. Yeah, uh you Halina amanu amino, all you who have believed, believe believe in who in Allah and His messenger and the book that he has sent down upon His Messenger, meaning have a conscious email and a man that will that will reflect in your actions.

02:20:29--> 02:21:15

So believe in the book that he has sent down upon His Messenger and the scripture which he sent down before you and whoever disbelieves in Allah, His angels, his books, his messengers in the last day has certainly gone far astray. Indeed, those who have believed, then disbelieved, then believed them disbelieved and then increased in disbelief. Never will ALLAH forgive them, nor will he guide them to a way, who are these people give tidings to the hypocrites, and when I feel that there is for them a painful punishment. Who are they, those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers? Do they seek with them honor, but indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely for inilah

02:21:15--> 02:22:00

izettle illa he Riviera. And this is something that we all need to think about. That are we seeking to? are we seeking honor before people? Is it that we want to become very respectful in the eyes of people? And if that is the goal, then are we doing things that displease Allah in the process by which we anger Allah? Who is it that we're really trying to please people or Allah? What are the nuzzle Allah config Kitab. And it has already come down to you in the book, that when you hear the verses of Allah recited, they're denied that they're being denied by them and ridiculed. Meaning there are people who are making fun of the verses of Allah rejecting them, then do not sit with

02:22:00--> 02:22:41

them, until they enter into another conversation, meaning either defend their religion over there, or leave, don't be a part of such gatherings. Indeed, you would then be like them, Indeed, Allah who will gather the hypocrites and disbelievers and hell all together. So this shows us very clearly that we should not be in such gatherings where Allah's verses are being mocked up, who are the hypocrites, those who wait and watch you, then if you gain a victory from Allah, they say, were we not with you? Meaning if you have something good, they want to have a share in it. But if the disbelievers have a success, they say to them, did we not gain the advantage over you, but we

02:22:41--> 02:23:17

protected you from the believers? Allah will judge between Allah who will judge between all of you on the Day of Resurrection, and never will Allah give the disbelievers over the believers away, meaning temporarily the believers may suffer at their hands. However, in the final outcome, Allah subhanaw taala will always give success the upper hand to the believers in the Muna Filipina you hold your own Allah indeed the hypocrites think to deceive Allah, but in reality, he is deceiving them. And when they stand for prayer, they stand lazy Lee

02:23:18--> 02:24:00

what either como de la sala, como que cela their hearts are not in the Salah at all. They don't feel like praying at all. They don't want to pray. So the stall as much as possible, then why do they pray your own and Nast just showing themselves to the people so that nobody says that Oh, they didn't pray and not remembering Allah except a little. Remember Salah is for the purpose of remembering Allah. Akina salata levy Cree, so if we don't remember Allah and Salah, then when will we remember Allah? So in Salah, try to make yourself focus on the remembrance of Allah. And we see over here that laziness with regards to Salah is a sign of NIF Ark, it's a sign of hypocrisy

02:24:01--> 02:24:34

and, and especially delaying swallow, stalling. This is also from hypocrisy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that is the prayer of the hypocrites. What is it? What is that he sits watching the sun until when it is between the horns of the shaitan he stands and pecks out four units of prayer, meaning just as a chicken, right? It just backs on the ground. A bird just like that the hypocrite quickly performs the former karratha not remembering Allah in them but a little

02:24:35--> 02:24:59

wavering between them belonging neither to the believers nor to the disbelievers. And whoever Allah leaves a stray, never will you find for him away, or you who have believed do not take the disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do you wish to give Allah against yourselves a clear case, meaning if your friendship with them is affecting your deen? Then you better be careful

02:25:00--> 02:25:48

Indeed, the hypocrites will be the lowest depths of the fire and never will you find for them a helper. Why? Why the lowest depth of the fire because their actions are lowly Illallah Dena Tabu will Ursula who except for those who repent, correct themselves hold fast to Allah and are sincere in their religion for Allah, meaning they stop showing off they make their worship sincere, for those will be with the believers. And Allah is going to give the believers a great reward. So for conditions of dobar mentioned over here, Toba is holding on to Allah sincerity and being with the believers. This is all part of Toba may have our Luma hoobie or other become in Shackleton, we're

02:25:48--> 02:26:34

airman Tom, what would Allah do with your punishment, if you are grateful and believe, meaning Allah has no need to punish you, Allah doesn't get any benefit by punishing you. What he wants from you is that you show gratitude, and that you shall belief not that you become ungrateful for the blessing of a man for the blessing of Islam, so that you begin to resent it. And then you begin to complain about it. And then you leave it and then you waver. No, in ceccato we are meant to work on Allah who Shakeel and alima and Allah is Ever appreciative and knowing so when you do something good, Allah knows about it. Allah appreciates it. So be sincere to him, stop seeking the approval of people seek

02:26:34--> 02:27:21

the approval of Allah is is the reward that Allah gives. Not enough. It's way more than what people can offer you. And then we see over here in this ayah that sugar is mentioned before he man and this shows us how important sugar is because sugar gratitude is something that leads us to more worship. And gratitude is something that strengthens our EMA. And this is why one of the things that we should do, especially while we're fasting is to thank Allah for the ability to worship him to thank Allah for the blessings that He has given us. instead of complaining about what we cannot do, let us start appreciating what we can do. And this is something that we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for

02:27:21--> 02:27:58

help for we should make the Aloma journey look at the Cal on Latasha Callen that Oh Allah made me someone who is ever remembering of you and ever grateful to you, or be Ernie Allah Vic rica was shook Rica, that Oh Allah helped me to remember you and help me to be grateful to you.
