And if you get a chance we're gonna do a third one as well. But until let's see how it goes. So let's begin in sha Allah in Alhamdulillah medu one is dying who want to start Pharaoh, when are allowed to be la HeMan sruti and fusina wamena sejati Melina Mejia de la vida mobile La Palma you Bill who follow her Deanna but I shall do an inner in the lower luxury color. But I shall do a Nam hamedan outdoor a solo. I want to be lying in a SharePoint team Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem rubbish ratty surgery where

me ally enabled us to benefit from these sessions melee enable us to make the most of this Ramadan and we make all our readers so inshallah keep adding the author list, not just the dogs in Arabic also your personal device, because Alhamdulillah This is a very blessed month and we should not miss out any opportunity of asking Allah for whatever we need and whatever we want, we can ask Allah subhanaw taala for everything so However, he has treasures, he can give us anything we want. At any time we want 100 Allah so inshallah with full faith with full Alhamdulillah conviction, we will ask Allah subhana wa Taala for many things this Ramadan and May Allah grant us all around me.
So are there are number one for today is going to be this easy, breezy Dora. Allah Allah Allah Allah in me indeed I as Luca I asked you men from Ferb lick your bounty, WA Matic and your mercy for him now. So indeed, it are indeed these two lie young Lekha Illa. And none hold possession of them but yourself. No one can give me these two, but only you. That's why Oh Allah, I'm asking you to grant me your father. And grant me Your beautiful, right. So let's just look at the word to word or you can see the easy way out. Or before we get there. Let's just look at the nice Hadees which talks about it. So before we go to the face to praise and easy memorization part, let's just look at the
Hadees first. So the Hadees is from the brani and it is authenticated by shekel Bonnie. So we're going to code that I'm running here. So from Abdullah bin Massoud rhodiola, one,
he said, a guest came to Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent someone or sent a message to his wives hoping that they would have some food for the guests. But there was no food with any one of them. So Rasul Allah sallallahu wasallam. At that point, he made other and this is that a lot of them in me as ello come in public or off Matic for inna Hola, yum, liqua L and all law indeed I asked of you for your bottle for your bounty for your work shoe. Wear medic and for your mercy for Enola, yam liqua. Ill and
indeed no one possesses these except you.
So after he made this era of the London muscle he quotes that I gave a gift of grace to cheap tourists with a lot of saliva center right around that time. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said something so beautiful.
her the harryman frog Lila, this is from the bounty of Allah will not know and we Nanda zero Ratna and we are waiting for his
Ramana are we waiting for his mercy now hamdulillah so this is puzzle part so half the door is accepted. Now we're waiting for his mercy. So this also shows that the race is also part of so whenever we are in need of more risk of any type, then inshallah we can make this door. Alright. Can you all hear me? Is the voice clear?
handed in the system ah
I think you will have to refresh maybe or if you're asking about my my voice to my voice is in good it's not clear but if the connection is good then Alhamdulillah
Allah in me as Luca min first phrase, Alma I indeed I asked you
from from what for lick your bounty what and dramatic Your mercy
so we want all law, your bounty I want risk from you Oh Allah, I want provision from your alma and your mercy, your mercy so that my tasks become easy from your mercy so that my life becomes easy for me Your mercy so that I can survive in this world happily and also your mercy so that I can make you to Jana insha Allah because Allah subhanaw taala has mercy is his Jana, right? That's what we find in the Quran, but also mercy we need all the time, because it is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because of that, we are still surviving, because the amount of sins were involved in the kind of wrong things people do, we could have been just done away with, but it is Allah's mercy that he
is keep forgiving us. It is Allah's mercy that he is keep on giving us another chance, another chance. So May Allah enable us to realize this before it's too late for in hula, Yom liqua illa and indeed no one possesses these except you. So, no one can give me the bounty and no one can give me the mercy. So, these two things, we cannot make them we cannot buy them, we cannot purchase them, we cannot steal them from anyone, these are the things are these are the amazing blessings on your luck and bestow upon us upon Allah. So, this is easy to rise in it. So start off from half the park today. Like I think right now, in the class, you can just memorize the first part, which is a long
in me as I look, I mean Firstly, because we know about Rama, we know a bit about fathers as well. So not too not too hard. And about this Hadees
scholar from the past
even Abby shaver he said
this is an era where when a person supplicants
upon any very sorry. So, he has a chapter in his book Anima Sana in his in the name of the chapter is what a person supplicates with when he is afflicted with hunger or his his sustenance is constrained. So, this gives us the indication that if we ever need if we ever are in need of sustenance, risk, or when we are, you know, hungry, then this is why we can make so maybe in Ramadan, when you feel hungry, you can also make this according to even Abby shaver and Allah knows best and hamdulillah another scholar he mentioned about the surah that regarding this surah these are the things no one can give us. So only a luck and that's why we are making the sauce and
hamdulillah we can understand that point clearly. The second offer today is very beautiful. Robbie Yamanaka, Saqqara lacava cara cara haga, the candidate won the Kermit wa laka must be de la liga, a Warhammer naeba My Lord, make me ever grateful to you
ever remembering Have you ever fearful? Have you ever obedient to you ever humble to you off turning and returning to you? It's so beautiful. So May Allah enable us to make these URLs and May Allah accept these doors for all of us? I mean,
the Hadees for this there are is that even above or below one he said, The Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to make this Torah. So what does it show? It was his usual door. So we should also try to make it our habit, our routine, and Subhanallah again, it's a longer that we are taking out just one part from it, because this part is also very important. Last time we covered a similar day where we have memorized another part already the last part right? This one Allah Matic. Well, we are right, right right here was a deadly sign. He was looking at the file. We were done with that. Now we're going to cover this one. So there are two versions of it. So don't get confused. The one we're covering right
now it has a shutdown on it, like on the words that Cara Shakira rahaga there is another one as you can look at this slide right now. It says Shakira, that rah rah Heba there.
The difference, but we're gonna stick to the shadow ones because that shows emphasis that shows continuity. So of course, we don't want to be in shock here ones. We don't want to be evacuate ones, or that euro ones or Shakira ones, we want to do it over and over again, isn't it? We want it to be our feature, right? We want it to be our characteristic, we want it to be our quality that we keep asking Allah for more and more, and we keep tagging along more and more, and we keep fearing a lot more and more and we're keep obeying Allah more and more inshallah, okay, this requires a lot of time, but instead we're going to try to do it. As soon as we can, we can try to sum it up, in few
words, inshallah. So let's look at each term.
If you look at this drop, then you're asking a law for either six things or seven things. It depends how you take the last two words. So inshallah, let's just look at the first word first. So we're asking Allah for
being grateful. We're not asking Allah for things here. Rather we asking Allah to give us the ability to do sugar, we asking Allah to make us grateful. But what kind of written gratitude check, ever read for Allah make me ever grateful.
And the Kira, Allah made me ever remembering of you. Make me someone who does your liquor over and over again, lacquer Harbor, someone who fears you. And then because of that fear stops himself or herself from doing any sense. So Oh Allah make me ever fearful breed of you. And it's not a bad type of fear. Remember that when we talk about fear, in connection with Allah subhana wa Tada. Then it is a fear which is healthy. It is a fear which makes you productive. It is a fear which makes you do more than handle. It's a fear which stops you from wrong. It's a fear which stops you from harming yourself. So it's a very positive type of fear. And then next thing we're asking Allah for is
obedience, that only two are ever obedient to you. I should never slip I should not be just a Ramadan Muslim, I should be ever obedient 24 seven Muslim, and for the entire year, not just one month, NACA mokuba. Ever humbled to you all La, La Liga, our her two words you after it off turning towards you off turning Monica returning to you. So Alhamdulillah, we still have few more minutes. So we can look at these terms in detail as well. 100 at that. So let's just look at sugar first. If you look at the word sugar, sugar is amazing. Sugar comes if you look at the root of it, or if you look at the dictionary meaning of it, it has a term which will make you remember it more in sha
Allah. So sugar is not just a thank you. Sugar is
there's a term in Arabic which says sugar, which means animal is grateful. But animal can't say thank you, right animal can't speak. So in Arabic language, when the animal eats, and it shows up on the animal's body, that animal is fed well, then that animal is considered what a grateful animal Subhanallah so when we show in our actions, some type of gratitude that is shirkers SubhanAllah. So May Allah enable us to be like that, that our sugar is obvious in our not only in our words, but also in our body language, also the way we deal with people Subhanallah so May Allah make us like that. So for sugar, if you can remember this, it will make your da inshallah a little more powerful.
Next part is remembering Allah. So we are asking Allah to make us remember him all the time. So like when we are making the RS or we when we are reciting Quran, or even when you're doing our chores, our mind should not wander here in there. We should focus on Allah, we should think about Allah. And we can think about Allah all the time. We don't even have to just utter the words, to show that we remember him, we can remember him while we are doing chores, thinking about him, and being grateful, you know, not even saying the words of gratitude but just being grateful that heart that there is also remembrance of Allah Al Hamdulillah. And also one more point about most beta book beta is a
combination of submission, obedience and love for Allah, which is very beautiful. And elaida our our hand is like when you miss someone so much, right? So Oh Allah, I'm missing you a lot too.
I keep coming back to you I'm missing a brother that some keep coming back to you. So Allah May Allah accept this to our from all of us. I mean deserve him alone crank is your vehicle Oh Pika, it is time for our next session. May Allah reward each and every one of you for paying attention your likes at all your daughter's this Ramadan and me subhanak Aloma become bigger eyeshadow La Ilaha Illa and as the physical activity a ceremony come to light even better cut.
Long, long, long.

Said mRNA como de la bella Kathu
our other Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish rajeswari were silly emri watlow looked at a melissani yufka who coli along the Kirby was said deadly Sani what's roots Hema Takara be amin Yoruba alameen
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a believer who recites the Quran is like an orange is citrus fruit, whose fragrance is sweet and whose taste is also sweet. A believer who does not recite the Quran is like a date which has no fragrance, but at least it is sweet in its taste. And the hypocrites who recite the Quran is like a basil, whose fragrance is sweet, but whose taste is bitter. And a hypocrite who does not recite the Quran is like the colo sink, which has no fragrance and it also has a bitter taste. So remember, we see in this Hadees that a person who recites the Quran, believes in it and acts upon it is among the best of Allah subhanaw taala servants, and we
should all try to increase our rank in this month of Ramadan by improving in our recitation by improving in our action and our reflection. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those who are sweet and are fragrant. Just number six Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim lei Yu hibel la hija hora de su immunol Kohli ilam and loulan What can Allah who semi or not Lima, Allah does not like the public mention of evil, except by one who has been wronged And ever is Allah hearing and knowing. The fact is that there are words we speak, that Allah subhanaw taala likes and approves off. And words we speak that he does not like lie you hibou Allah does not like certain words. There are words that
Allah subhanaw taala likes, for example, the words of wicked, when a person says Subhan Allah and hamdulillah La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, they're praising Allah remembering Allah glorifying him thanking Him, then these kinds of words are liked by Allah, they become a Hubble Kalam, the most beloved of speech. And in this idea, we learn about words which Allah subhanaw taala does not like. And this is something that we need to pay attention to. We need to pay attention to what we say with our mouths, the words that we add
Her the expressions that we use are these words that are bringing us Allah subhanaw taala approval or are these words that are taking us away from Allah subhanaw taala is approval. So in this ayah we learn about the words which Allah subhanaw taala does not like the speech that he does not approve off, and that speech is ultra hora de su immunol. Cole, the public open loud mention of evil. Remember that evil whether it is in thought or speech or action, this is something that Allah subhanaw taala does not approve. And publicising spreading evil is something that Allah does not like when this is verbal, Allah subhanaw taala does not like such language at all. He does not like
such statements at all. And these statements can be in the form of, for example, a person making Dora against another person invoking curses against another or this can also be backbiting another saying bad things about another even though they may be true. And then thirdly, this can also include speaking in an evil way to someone, for example, using harsh language rude words to someone. Here we learned that Allah subhanaw taala does not like such words, in Lamin lilliam, except by one who has been wronged, meaning the oppressed has been allowed to make draw against the oppressor. The oppressed has been allowed to talk about the wrong that was done to them, whether this is in
therapy, or it is an order to warn other people, and the oppressed has also been allowed to respond to the one who has been verbally abusive to them, but how in like manner, why? Why has this permission been given, so that instead of becoming physically violent, or suffering from the suppressed pain, a person has a healthy Avenue or the ability to express themselves so that they can feel relieved, their anger may subside. So remember, it is not sinful, it is not disrespectful. It is not considered backbiting. When a person says something bad about another, when they have been oppressed, in order to seek justice, or in order to get help, or in order to seek Allah subhanaw
taala is help and therefore this is not sinful. We learn in a hadith that a man came to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam demanding his depths. And when he came, he started behaving very rudely with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the companions intended to stop this man, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, leave him, because the creditor has the right to speak, meaning do not stop him, even though it appears to be disrespectful, but he has the right to demand. But remember, that even the oppressed person should be very careful. So only speak as much as is true. And do not embellish your complaints with lies and with false accusations, do not pray
against the oppressor, what he does not deserve, do not respond in a worse way. Because then you're going to become the aggressor. If as long as a person is speaking only what is true and fair, that is permissible, even if the words seem appropriate, inappropriate, what can Allah who semi or Lima and Allah is Ever hearing ever knowing, meaning he hears the complaint of the oppressed, he hears the doors of the oppressed, and he knows what the oppressor has done. And remember, Allah subhanaw taala knows both sides. So he will be completely just in a narration, we learn that of the major sins is that a person attacks the honor of a Muslim without any right and of the major sins, is that
a person hurled two insults in response to one insult that was hurled towards him? A lot of times this happens that when someone has been verbally abusive towards us, we become so angry, and we believe that we have the right to say whatever we want. And so when a person responds with double wrong, then this is injustice. In fact, it is a major sin. Then it is said into Purdue hi Ron. If instead you show some good oh tofu or you can seal it Eldar for en su in or you pardon an offense for in Allah Cana or for one pudiera then Indeed, Allah is Ever pardoning and competent. You see what Allah subhanaw taala likes, is the concealment the privacy of righteous deeds, but a person is
not always able to do that. Why because the nature of certain deeds, certain good deeds,
They are public, you're not able to keep them private, or a person does not always have privacy. So, if he leaves it because of that, then he loses the opportunity to do good. So whether good is done publicly or privately, it is good. In Tobu Hi, Ron out Ofu. Both cases are permissible. What matters is a person's intention
out our foreign Sue in or if you pardon an offense. And remember, if a person pardons the evil that was done to him, then that is excellent. Because a person should remember that Allah is our fool, Allah is studied, Allah is Ever pardoning and at the same time, he is all able to execute his punishment on those who do wrong, yet he forgives. So if you show pardon to others, then Allah will also pardon you. Remember, forgiving people benefits you before it benefits them. And forgiving them is only easy when a person realizes their own imperfections, their own mistakes, that you know what, if they have done wrong to me, then I have also done wrong to many, I am also guilty of many sins.
So let me pardon them. Perhaps Allah will also Pardon me. And if I start taking revenge on every little thing, then what if I am also treated the same way by Allah remodelled you Longhorn, who said that the one who does not show mercy is not shown mercy. The one who does not forgive is not forgiven. The one who does not show pardon is not shown pardon. The one who does not accept apology is not accepted apology from and the one who does not save himself from sin is not saved from sin. So treat people the way you want to be treated. We all want to be excused for our mistakes, we all want to be forgiven for our sins. So let us show forgiveness. And let us come up with many excuses
for the mistakes that people made. Make, and especially these days when we are at home, when we are constantly with our family members. And sometimes we get hurt by what they say, annoyed by what they say, learn to overlook, learn to ignore, learn to forgive and pardon. People should feel safe at home. Not that they feel that they're constantly being criticized, constantly being stopped, constantly being, you know, told what to do what not to do, give space to people make their life easy, and Allah subhanaw taala will also make your life easy. So do not dwell on the mistakes of people show pardon. In an inner Hades we learn or for our monthly lemak pardon the one who has
wronged you join with the one who cuts off from you. Do good to the one who is bad to you, and speak the truth, even if it be against your self. And remember that when you pardon someone that you actually receive the help of Allah, when you overlook the mistakes of other people. What do you ignore the wrongs that they do the annoyances that they cause, you know, sometimes we get very irritated by certain individuals, by the manner that they speak the kind of words that they use, you know, their language, we get very irritated by them. Sometimes their very presence is a source of annoyance for us. So learn to overlook and ignore, especially when they're harming you. Still, if
you ignore them, and if you forgive them, if you pardon them. Then remember that Allah subhanaw taala is help will be with you, because Allah is on the side of the oppressed, not the oppressor, in a Hadees we learn in Nam in Mooji, batten mouthfeel, all of the things that necessarily bring about forgiveness, meaning because of what your person is certainly forgiven is what birthed the loose Salaam, spreading the Salaam, meaning constantly saying Salaam making the offer others assalamu Aleikum As salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah spreading the salon. This is something that necessarily brings forgiveness. We're horsnell kalaam and good speech, meaning speaking nicely with others, even
if we believe they don't deserve it, even if we believe that they are in the wrong. So in retaliation also, even though we are allowed to speak in like manner, but give preference to good speech, say what is better, so that Allah will be on your side. And remember, this is prophetic behavior. We learned from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that at one point when he had been affected by magic, and the charm was destroyed, and Allah subhanaw taala cured him. I Chateau de la Mourinho asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Are you not going to
expose this magic meaning Are you not going to expose the person who did magic on you? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied, what a manna for Accra, who an author, Allah nasty shala. That As for me, I dislike to provoke evil among the people, meaning when Allah has cured me, then as gratitude, I'm not going to talk about this, I'm not going to spread this. Why? Because evil only leads to more evil. And when a person responds with forgiveness, when a person responds at times with silence with pardon, then this is something that puts an end it puts a stop to the evil, it doesn't spread any more than
Indeed, those who disbelieve in Allah and His messengers, and wish to discriminate between Allah and His messengers, and say, we believe in some and disbelieve in others, meaning we will do whatever we want to do, we will choose to believe in whatever we want. You don't tell us anything, and such people who wish to adopt a way in between. Those are the disbelievers truly, we have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment. Allah says about such people that they are Ola eco humble, kaffee Runa. Hakka Remember, the religion, Islam is not to be interpreted, however, one feels like a person cannot pick and choose what they want to believe in, and what they don't want to
believe in what they want to follow, and what they don't want to follow. their religion is not about desire, this is about surrendering to Allah azzawajal. But they who believe in Allah, will levena amanu Billa he will also Lee, but they who believe in Allah and His messengers, and do not discriminate between any of them, meaning they believe in all of the prophets of Allah, to those he is going to give their rewards and ever is Allah forgiving, and merciful. So this shows us very clearly, that in order to be saved from the humiliation of the Hereafter, in order for one's faith to be valid and rewarded, one must believe in all of the prophets of Allah and all of the pillars of
faith. Yes, Luca Al Kitab. The People of the Scripture ask you they demand from you what to bring down to them a book from the heaven, but they had asked of Musa alayhis salaam even greater than that, and said, show us Allah outright. So the Thunderbolt struck them for their wrongdoing. Then they took the cat for worship, after clear evidences had come to them. And we poured into that and we gave Musa a clear authority. What Tina Musa suparna Medina, you see, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would feel very hurt and upset by the demands of people. And by the way, people would hasten into unbelief. And here we learn that the example of Musa alayhis salaam is given
Masada, his Salaam was truly hurt by his own people. They didn't obey him much, and they said very hurtful things to him. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam often remembered the patients of musar to his center. We learned that once a man accused the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of being unfair in the distribution of some property. And when the Prophet sallallahu radiocentre was informed about that, he was visibly upset. But then he said, but the other Moosa alayhi salatu was salam, ack thirimanne valic. For sabara. They heard Musashi is Salaam, way more than this, but he was patient. So remember, the harsh, rude, unfair treatment of people is something that is very
difficult to bear. But remember, people spare nobody. We learn that Allah is patient over the wrong that people attribute to him. The prophets were also patient over the unfair demands that were made from them, and the hurtful things that were set to them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was patient by remembering the patients of Masada, his center. So when you remember the patients of the profits, then it's easy to have somebody then it's easy to show pardon, then it is easy to not stoop to the level of the aggressor. What are far enough Oklahoma told me therapy him and we raised over them the amount for refusal of their covenant, and we sat to them enter the gate bowing humbly,
and we said to them do not transgress on the Sabbath, and we took from them a solemn covenant. But what did they do? Did they fulfill those covenants? No, they broke them, Furby manically. He mitaka home and for their breaking of the covenant, while cuffley him bi, Atilla and their disbelief in the signs of Allah wa
Partly himal ambia ability help and they're killing of the profits without right will Koli him kulu, buena Wolf, and they're saying, Our hearts are wrapped by altaba Allah who are late hobbico for him, rather, Allah has sealed them because of their disbelief. Follow up noona illa kalila. So they believe not except for a few. So remember, the people who break their promises with Allah, Who transgress against the very individuals who are good to them, meeting the prophets of Allah, they tried to kill them, and they and the people who refuse to listen to anything good, who consider themselves to be perfect as they are because they say our hearts are wrapped meaning we know enough
so you don't tell us what is right and what is wrong. Then such people, the ability to do good is taken away from them, then a seal is such over their hearts. Remember, a mistake can be made by anybody. But the believer feels bad. They feel remorse, they feel guilt. And they turn that remorse into humility before Allah seeking His forgiveness, not becoming stubborn and arrogant. That Who are you to tell me and who are you to advise me Mind your own business. I know enough. I know already. This kind of arrogant behavior is not from the believer would be cool for him. We're calling him Allah Maruyama, Bhutan and alima and for their disbelief, and they're saying against Miriam, a great
slender, meaning the bunny is slightly they accused her of committing Zina, even though they knew of her piety. So because of such reasons, Allah subhanaw taala cursed them. We'll call him in our paternal mercy. And they're saying proudly, that indeed we have killed the mercy, or Isa, the son of money. I'm the Messenger of Allah. Look at the audacity. That one is that a person does something wrong. The other level is to brag about it, to be arrogant about it, to be proud of the sins that a person has committed. And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but another was made to resemble him to them. It is at that Esaias sedan was with the Hawaii Yun when the people were coming
to kill him. So he asked his Hawaii Eunice to who would volunteer himself to take his place. And one of the Hawaii Yun did. So he was made to look like a sorry, his setup. And when the people came and killed that man, they thought that they had killed a Salah, his Salah, but in reality, they had not killed him, nor did they crucify him. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. And the fact is that the People of the Book do differ over it till today. There is no single standard version within Christianity even as to what happened to Esau to his center. Some say that he died on the cross Some say that he was resurrected after that some say that he remained for 40
days after the resurrection. The fact is, they have no knowledge of it, except the following of assumption. But what is factual Well Mr. Potter Lu who your cleaner and they did not kill him for certain Then where did he go? Burn Rafa or hula hoop la rather Allah who raised him to himself, or can Allah who are Aziz and hekima And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise? Remember, Allah subhanaw taala took his messenger sallallahu wasallam up into the heavens at the time of Israel. The Night Journey met Raj, the ascension, and he also raised reciting his Salaam before that, why how because Allah is Allah Aziz, he is Aziz and hekima. He is almighty, for whom nothing is hard. He is
Hakeem his hokum, his judgment, his decision prevails. And remember, are these also means that Allah honors His servants. He is the source of Riza. So when He is the Lord of honor, the one who has all honor, then he gives it to whom he pleases, he gives it to his friends. So the person whom Allah defends the person whom Allah shelters, the person who Allah helps them remember, nobody at all can harm him. So do not be afraid of what people say, or of what people might say. Remember, Allah is Aziz and hekima did Allah not defend his righteous servants? Did Allah not protect his prophets and his messengers? He did. So don't be afraid in obeying Allah subhanaw taala then it is said, and
there is none from the People of the Scripture, but that he will surely believe in a Sati his Salaam before his death, and on the Day of Resurrection, he will be against them a witness, remember that a Saudi Salaam will certainly return to the world. We learned in the heydays that he will land on a minaret in Damascus. And there are over 70 narrations that mentioned the return of Esaias
Salaam with so much detail the very place that he will descend in what his appearance, physical appearance will look like, you know the kind of clothes that he will be wearing, and what he will do all of these descriptions are given, we learned that he will kill the judge, the judgment judge will be destroyed because of his draw, and there will be peace in the world, he will establish justice, there will be hedge, there will be aroma, and all people will be Muslim, all evil and wrongdoing will come to an end, the only religion will be Islam,
for the Lumina larina. How do so because of wrongdoing on the part of the Jews, we made unlawful for them certain good foods, which had been lawful to them previously. And because of their averting from the way of Allah, many people, two things are mentioned over here, which become two crimes, which become a source of deprivation. The thing is, we all want good things in life. And sometimes we feel that the law that Allah subhanaw taala has given us is such that it deprives us It doesn't allow us to enjoy good things. But the fact is that a person can only enjoy good things in the true sense. When Allah subhanaw taala gives them when Allah subhanaw taala enables and allows by
violating the commands of Allah, by disobeying Allah, we're not going to get true enjoyment. by stopping people from the way of Allah, we're not going to get true enjoyment, true joy is attained by obeying Allah subhanaw taala. And if even momentarily, a person gets to enjoy some things here and there, then that enjoyment will only be temporary, it is not going to be eternal, it is not going to be everlasting. Because look at what happened with the people of the book, when they committed injustice, wool, and wool is not just in the form of killing another human being lowen is also in the form of sinning, disobeying Allah, openly and proudly violating the limits that Allah
has set, then what is the consequence of this, the consequences how wrongness or lay him play you back, good things become unlawful, and they don't just become unlawful in the way that they were made unlawful for the bunny is slightly, that literally the good things were made, how long upon them. But sometimes, this is also in the form of deprivation, where a person does not get the ability or the opportunity to enjoy good things. For example, they lose their health, they lose their peace of mind, they lose their, you know, their, their their freedom. Or for instance, they ignore there's so many problems in life, so many worries that concern them that even though the best
food is in front of them, they're not able to enjoy it. Why? Because their heart is grieving. Why? Because they're upset and they're worried. So remember, true enjoyment is in obeying Allah. It is by obeying Allah, not by disobeying Allah, will the Hema Riba and because of their taking of interest, what are the know who are and who, while they had been forbidden from it were ugly him and well and nasty bill baffling and because of their consuming of the People's wealth and justly, we all need to reflect on ourselves, if we feel any kind of deprivation, that we feel that we are not getting to enjoy the blessings of Allah for whatever reason, then we need to reflect upon ourselves. Is our
source of income lawful? Is our wealth mixed with Riba? And are we taking money from people unlawfully with artisanal caffeine I'm in Homer urban Lima, and we have prepared for the disbelievers among them a painful punishment, but those firm in knowledge among them, lacking a rusty Horner filler enemy men home, but those firm in knowledge among them will not be known. And the believers, what do they do? They believe in what has been revealed to you or profit and what was revealed before you and the establishes of prayer and the givers of the cat and the believers in Allah and the Last Day, those we will give a great reward. So here are Rossi hoonah filler in our
mentioned, those who are firm in knowledge, who are they navair ibnu ziet said that there are those who are humble before Allah, and who are eager to seek His approval. They do not seek to exalt themselves over those who are greater than them, nor belittle those who are inferior. This is the sign of a truly knowledgeable person, that he is humble before Allah subhanaw taala eager to please Allah, not to please people
No eager to please Allah. They do not exalt themselves over those who are greater than them, meaning they recognize that Allah subhanaw taala has given certain individuals privilege over them, whether it is through status or it is through knowledge or it is through piety, or it is through their age or whatever social position they have. They recognize the worth of people, they recognize the greatness in others, nor do they belittle those who are inferior. They don't look down on those who have less than them. Some said that last year filler Elon is the one who has four things and we should all think about ourselves. Because if ever we are asked, Do you know about Islam, we will say
of course we do. But what is the level of our knowledge, the signs will show. The first thing is with his Lord, he has the core. Secondly, with the creation, he is humble, thirdly, towards the world, he is disinterested, And fourthly, against his knifes his tribes. So a truly knowledgeable person has the fear of Allah is humble with people and is disinterested in the world. He's not greedy for this world, and his tribes against his own knifes. He disciplines his own desire. So you see, there are many people who learn, but there are very few who actually become firm in their knowledge and firmness and knowledge only comes when a person acts upon that knowledge when a person
is willing to have to accept the effect of that knowledge. Indeed, We have revealed to you as we revealed to new and the prophets after him, and we revealed to Ibrahim is smart. He is how they are called the descendants, Risa, a YouTube, Eunice Harun and slay man and to the world we gave the book of zoo. We're also done called the castles now Homer la come and cabello we're also an alumna of sauce, Homer lake. And we sent messengers about whom we have related their stories to you before and messengers about whom we have not related to you. And the fact is that if we look at the Quran, there is only about 25 prophets or so that have been mentioned that we know about. And we learn in
Hadees that there were many more profits than that. Over 100,000 prophets that Allah subhanaw taala sent and Allah spoke to mousai salaam with direct speech, meaning the way speech is done. Allah subhanaw taala spoke to Masada his Salaam Who were these messengers? Why were they sent? Allah tells us will also allow mobile Shireen woman reading we sent messengers as Bringers of good tidings and Warner's so that mankind will have no argument against Allah. After the messengers, nobody will be able to say that oh, we did not know no one came to guide us And ever is Allah Exalted in Might, and wise, lacking illa huya shadow Bhima and Zilla lake. If people do not believe, then don't worry,
why? Because but Allah bears witness to that which he has revealed to you. He has sent it down with his knowledge, remember, and zillah who berated me, this Quran is based on Allah.
And Allah zerion is perfect. His knowledge is perfect. So this book, The Quran is all facts. You see, everything that we read or study, it is such that it is prone to some kind of error. And this is the reason why books are revised. Right? There are new journals every now and then there's new new publications, there are newer additions. And then there's refutations and corrections, there is science, there's pseudoscience, any the knowledge of human beings is ever evolving. Why? Because it is not how it is not absolute truth. It is just based on people's understanding at the time, or their observation at the time. And we are limited in what we can understand what we can observe what
we can know. But the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala The one who created an iarla momen hallak, the one who created does he not know, of course he knows everything. So unzila who bear in me, the Quran is all help. So we should have full confidence and full trust that nothing in this book is wrong. Nothing. There is absolutely no error in this book at all. Anything else that we read? Yes, it can have errors in it. We can have our doubts. We can have our reservations. But when it comes to the book of Allah, we can be free of this fear and Zilla who berated me. Allah has revealed it with his knowledge when Mullah eager to your shadows, and the angels also testify worker fabula he
shahida and sufficient is Allah
as witness, it's amazing how we take the knowledge of people so seriously, right? We are willing to spend our lives learning it, we are willing to spend a lot of our money into learning, the theories, the definitions, the studies, which are done by people, and that is perfectly fine. I'm not belittling that. But remember that the knowledge of people has its place, and the Quran has its own place. And the place of the Quran, the status of the Quran is greater than the status of the knowledge of people. The Quran deserves greater attention. But the fact is, that we have not given the Quran what it deserves. We read it a little, we memorize it, perhaps. And then we think that we
have done our part, we think we have done enough. And then for the rest of our lives, we don't need to open the book of Allah. No, the Quran deserves our attention, that we keep opening it, we keep reflecting upon it, we keep diving into its deep meanings, we keep benefiting from it. And the person who learns the Quran than truly they have received a huge favor, or thought said that when one of us learned the Quran, absorb the ramen, a tsunami would say that you have taken from the knowledge of Allah, you have taken from the knowledge of Allah, and the best of you can only be the one who acts by it. So remember the Quran and zela who obey me, it contains the knowledge of Allah.
So having it knowing the Quran, learning the Quran, is a great privilege. And the best is the person who actually acts upon that knowledge. Indeed, those who disbelieve and avert people from the way of Allah have certainly gone far astray. How is it that a person averts people from the way of Allah by their own actions? This is not always done verbally. Yes, there are people whose goal in life is to stop people from Islam. So they will make such videos and write such articles and fill them with lies. And you know,
blow things out of proportion, and Miss, represent the truths and distort the truths. There are people who will do that. But think about ourselves. How is it that we end up stopping people from the way of Allah when we don't follow the Quran? When we say that we are believers in Allah, but our actions are so hurtful, our behaviors are so deceitful. This is how people are stopped from the way of Allah. So we all need to take a look at our lives and see how much do our lives align with the book of Allah? Indeed, those who disbelieve and commit wrong or injustice, never will ALLAH forgive them, nor will he guide them to a path except the path of hell. They will abide there in forever and
that for Allah is always easy. Yeah, a yohannes. all mankind are the journey Acoma Rasul Allah will help him Rob become the messenger has come to you with the truth from your Lord. And what is the truth that the messenger has brought? It is the Quran and the Sunnah. So what should you do for me? No, so all of you believe heilala calm, this is better for you. We're in duck photo. And if you disbelieve that you should know that indeed to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth and Evers Allah knowing and wise, yeah, a Hillel Kitab or People of the Scripture lotta Hello Phoebe in econ. Do not commit access in your religion. All people have the book. Consider this
title. Who are you folks? Who are you? You are the People of the Scripture. That is your identity. So what befits you check yourself. Are you really following the scripture? Let the Hanafi Dini come do not commit excess in your religion. You see Lulu in religion is that a person goes beyond the limits that the religion has set for something the Jews did Hello? How by denying and opposing reciting his sin Um, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The Christians went to another extreme in their love and adoration of reciting his Sunnah. So they called him God's Son. And remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us against Lulu. He said a year come well
Hulu or people you must fear Allah and do not let shaytaan get the better of you. Do not let shavonne get the better of you. I am Muhammad, the slave of Allah, the son of the slave of Allah and His Messenger, I am the messenger of Allah. And by Allah, I do not like that you exalt me above the position that Allah has given me. Meaning do not do Hulu. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Hulu beware of Hulu because it destroyed the people before you. So we should be very careful sometimes in our love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in singing
His praises, we take his level to the level of Allah and some people you need to take that even hire a staff at Allah do not come in Hello. Remember the beauty of something is in it being itself while at the kulu Allah He in the hammock and do not say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Risa the son of Madame was but a messenger of Allah and His word which he directed to Millennium and the soul created at the command of Allah for me no Billa he was also Lee. So believe in Allah and His messengers. Well at the kulu Salah, and you should not say Salah sir. So the concept of Trinity is being rejected into who stopped this desist, it is better for you, what is better for you that you
give Allah His right, that Allah is the only God worthy of worship and everyone else besides Him, whether it is reciting Asana or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they are Allah servants in num Allahu Allahu wa ahead, Indeed Allah is but one god Subhana who Exalted is He above having a son, To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is on the earth, work of our biLlahi were keela and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. So remember, Allah, the first and the last, everything belongs to him. He is not in need of a son or a partner. Everything is owned by him. All are Allah servants lanius thankful mercy. Never would the mercy disdain he would never ever look
down. He would never think that it is beneath his level, what is beneath his level, to be a servant of Allah, nor with the angels near Allah, and whoever disdains his worship, and is arrogant, he will gather them to, he will gather them to himself all together. Remember, the greatness of a slave of Allah is in being a slave to Allah. This is the highest level of praise that a human being can be given. When they perfect and embody absolute servitude to Allah. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is called our Allah's slave in the Quran many times. And this is what the prophets of Allah aspired for also, that they should be good slaves to Allah. So remember, you are not doing
the Prophet, any favor with your Hulu because the prophets of Allah found their honor in servitude to Allah. They did not Yes, then give, they did not think that worshipping Allah was beneath them, that it was humiliating to be Gods worshiper. No, they understood that their honor was actually in being a worshiper is live to Allah subhanaw taala. And no person should think like this, that if I am called Allah slave, then this is an embarrassment that this is derogatory. So why do you feel that you are insulting a prophet of Allah by calling him Allah slave, being a slave to Allah is not an insult, it is actually an honor. The problem is that many people, you know, they do actually feel
embarrassed to worship Allah. They feel that obeying Allah, you know, in certain commands, that is beneath their level, it is embarrassing. Whereas the true believer does not feel embarrassed to obey Allah. He understands that his honor, and his dignity is actually an obeying Allah. You know how these we learn that the believers are humble, and compliance, like the friendly camel, which if lead, it yields, if it is driven, it complies, and if it is made to kneel, and sit down on rocky ground, it will kneel down it will sit down over there.
But sometimes, we become very stubborn. We don't want to be told what to do, or what not to do, what to wear, or what not to wear. We just want to be following our own desires. We think that following the commands of Allah is beneath our level of stuff at Allah, we should free ourselves of such arrogance. And as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, he will give them in full their rewards and grant them extra from his bounty. But as for those who disdained meeting will feel embarrassed to worship Allah and were arrogant, who refused, then He will punish them with a painful punishment and they will not find for themselves besides Allah, any protector or helper. All Mankind
there has come to you a conclusive proof from your Lord meaning the Quran and we have sent down to you a clear light, the Quran is light. It is a conclusive
proof. We learn that we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You must recite the Quran and you must remember Allah, because it is a means of your good mentioned in the sky and the light for you on the earth. So those who believe so those who believe in Allah and hold fast to him, where a dozen will be, how is it that a person can hold fast to Allah by calling upon him by putting one's trust in Allah seeking Allah's help, depending upon him in trusting one's affairs to him and holding on to his book, because this is what it means to believe in Allah, then such people he will admit them to mercy from himself and bounty and guide them to himself on a straight path, meaning
Allah will guide such people who those who hold on to Allah.
They request from you a legal ruling, say, Allah gives you a ruling concerning the calella who is the colada, a person who has neither descendants nor ascendance, meaning as heirs, me, so he only has siblings when he dies. So if a man dies, leaving no child but only a sister, she will have half of what he left, and he inherits from her if she dies, and has no child, but if there are two sisters or more, they will have two thirds of what he left. If there are both brothers and sisters, the male will have the share of two females, Allah makes clear to you His law, lest you go astray and Allah is Knowing of all things. So we see over here that the law that Allah subhanaw taala has
given whether it is the law of inheritance or any other law, it is not to make our lives difficult. He has revealed this law why you begin hula hula come until the loo to save us from misguidance to save us from getting lost from making mistakes from committing errors from being unjust.
Surah Toma either surah Toma either is a Madani surah and it was revealed towards the end of the madonie era, which means that none of the commands of the surah have been abrogated their final commands and we see that
in the Quran over 80 times. Allah Subhana Allah says yeah, are you Hello Dina Ave oh you have believed and in this surah alone there are 16 verses that begin with the A you are Latina amanu or you will have believed and that is how the sooner begins. Also, yeah, uh you Halina amanu Oh forbid are called all you will have believed, fulfill all contracts, meaning all obligations that are imposed upon you, whether from Allah or from the people, then fulfill them lawful for you are the animals of grazing livestock, except for that which is recited to you hunting not being permitted, while you are in the state of Islam. Indeed, Allah ordains what he intends in nulla Yakumo may you
read, so your job is to follow and obey. In certain Nisa, we learned that the People of the Book failed to fulfill the covenants that they made with Allah. And it was because of their breach of the covenants that Allah subhanaw taala was displeased with them. And as a result they suffered in this life and there is more that is prepared in the hereafter. So this surah begins with the command that all believers, you should fulfill your covenants, you should fulfill your promises. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Let imana Lima, Allah amanatullah, who will Edina Dena Lima Allah, Allah who there is no faith in the one who does not fulfill trusts. And there is no worship in the
one who does not fulfill covenants. So remember, whether a promise is between two individuals or two nations, the sign of a believer of a religious servant is that he fulfills his promises. We think that we think that the religion is only on the prayer mat. If we want to worship Allah, then we just, you know, praise Allah and that's it. No religion, obedience to Allah worship a man, this extends beyond the prayer rug.
This is something that has an impact on the way that we interact with people. So pay regard to the covenants, pay regard to the promises. And part of that is to be mindful of Allah with regards to what you eat, eat only that which he has made lawful for you. And remember, it is up to Allah to decide that, or you who have believed, do not violate the rights of Allah, or the sanctity of the sacred month, or neglect the marking of the sacrificial animals and garlanding them, or violate the safety of those coming to the sacred house seeking bounty from their Lord and His approval. But when you come out of Iran, then you may hunt and do not let the hate
treat other people for having obstructed you from a musty that can lead you to transgress. This is so beautiful. You see, there was once a time when the Muslims constantly suffered at the hands of their enemy. When the Muslims went to Mecca in order to perform law, the machine did not allow them to enter. Imagine. And then there came a point where the Muslims were victorious. Allah subhanaw taala gave, gave conquest of Makkah to His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the Muslims are advised that now that you have the upper hand, now that you have that freedom, then do not let the hatred of a people lead you to transgress? Yes, once upon a time they hurt you. They annoyed you,
they persecuted you. But now get over that past and if they have repented, if they have made amends, then you should also move on. And also you see someone sometimes you know, they have wronged you in the past and then when you are dealing with them, you are tempted to take revenge. So yes, you are allowed to take revenge, but only as much as the wrong that was done to you. You're not allowed to cause more damage. Because if you cause more damage, if you start to do if you transgress, then you become the transgressor and Allah does not like such people. This is how just our religion is what the our new our little bit toccoa and cooperate in righteousness and piety. So any person, whether
they are our friend or foe, when they're doing something good, and they need our cooperation, than cooperate with them. So here we see bill and taqwa are mentioned, they're paired together, that if someone is doing good, then join them. You see, interco is the pleasure of Allah and in bed is the pleasure of people. Bid includes the doing of all righteous deeds, whether their obligations or their recommended and taqwa includes leaving all forbidden things. And it is not just enough to do good. It is also important to have the court to refrain from what from what Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden. We learn in a Hadith, that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that on
every Muslim there is enjoined a compulsory charity, meaning every Muslim must give charity every day. So the people said, What if he has nothing, and no money to give? The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said he should work with his hands so that he may benefit himself and give in charity. They said if he cannot work or does not work, he said that he should help the oppressed, the people who are sad. They said, if he does not do that, meaning if he's not in a position to help others, he said that he should enjoin what is right. They said, What if he is not able to do that? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then he should refrain from doing evil, for that will be
considered for him as a charity. So remember, refraining from wrong is also necessary. It is not enough to just cooperate in you know, charitable causes, that we raise money for different good causes, that is good. But we should also cooperate in order to stop one another, and to stop people from doing wrong things with our new idol Barry with taqwa, you see, there are good things that you can do on your own. But then, there are things that you cannot, that you cannot do alone, they are greater tasks or bigger goals. So they require greater effort for which one person alone is not enough. You need to join hands, you need the support of one another. So what is the lesson that we
are being given over here, support one another, help one another in different ways. And sometimes offering that support can just be giving an encouraging word or giving an ear listening to someone, right being there to help them giving them a reminder. And remember that when you help someone do something good, then you also get reward for the good that was done. We learned in our heads that once a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asking for a mount, meaning a means of transportation. And he said that a mine Mine has been ruined. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said go to so and so. So the man went to him, and that man gave him an animal. So the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever leads to good, then for him is the same reward as the one who does it or acts upon it. So darwino I'll believe a taco cooperate. And especially, you know, when people are fasting, when people are, you know, tired, they're sleep deprived, or people are worried, you know about the work and so many people are in a position like that, where they have work to do and then their children are home and then they have the family to look after. Also, you know, before people would eat lunch at work or at school, but now there is breakfast at home luncheon
dinner and others, you know, before there were if Thor's now every thought is going to be at home. So it's important that we create ease for each other, we help and support one another. So for example, if you go into the kitchen and help your wife, help your sister help your mother, right, even if it's just doing the dishes, or doing a little bit of household work then so that your wife, your sister, your mother, they're not exhausted, and they're also able to worship Allah, they're also able to recite some Quran, then this then you have a share in that, so increase and multiply your rewards by cooperating in good in righteousness.
And then while at the r1, o, LL SME, what are the one but do not cooperate insane and aggression, do not cooperate in this isn't is to do what Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden and are the one is to transgress the boundary that Allah subhanaw taala has set to commit what is unlawful and ultra remember that Islam is sin is against oneself, or with respect to the rights of Allah and or Duan aggression, transgression. This is a sin that harms other people. So don't cooperate in committing sin, don't cooperate in committing injustice in wronging people, sometimes we see that our friends, our own loved ones are doing something wrong, they're committing a sin, then do not appreciate them.
Do not praise them over there. Don't support them over there. Sometimes we see that our loved one is committing aggression. Our own parents at times can be the ones who are being unjust with certain individuals, and they ask for our cooperation, they expect our cooperation, so do not cooperate with them in that regard. respectfully disagree. Be just even if it is against you. And temporarily, if someone becomes upset with you, that How dare you don't support me? How dare you don't cooperate with me, then be persistent. Because eventually they will understand and if they don't, then leave it to Allah subhanaw taala. Remember, sometimes people expect wholehearted and unconditional support
from us, that even when they choose to commit a sin against Allah, that, for example, someone decides that, you know, they're they're not going too fast, or they decide that they're not going to, you know, for example, eat only what is lawful, or they say that you know what i can dress however I want, I can say whatever I want, and they expect wholehearted support from you know, remember, nobody, nobody at all, no human being at all deserves our whole hearted and unconditional support. This is a false concept. This is a false expectation that we say that if you love me, and if you like me, then accept me how I how I am. No, we will accept you the way you are when you when
you obey Allah subhanaw taala It doesn't mean that I will turn violent against you. No, it doesn't mean that I will hurl abuses at you. No, but I will call wrong wrong. I will not call wrong, right? Sometimes it happens that people in our own families within our own friend circle, you know, they want to do something wrong and they expect our support. We should not offer our support over there. It doesn't mean that we cut off from them. It doesn't mean that we become rude with them. It doesn't mean that now we start cursing them. No, we in fact, we have to show more love over there. But in showing that love in showing that kindness, we should not change the words of Allah. We should not
change the law of Allah. So do not cooperate in sin and aggression. We learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is the one who is being oppressed. So the people said Oh, Allah's Messenger. It is understood that if you know if someone is being oppressed, and we support them, but how should we help him if he's the oppressor, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, by preventing him from oppressing others. So remember, stopping people from injustice is one of the best ways of supporting them.
What the hola in Allah Harsha de de la Cobb and fear Allah Indeed Allah is severe in penalty, then it is mentioned, prohibited to you are dead animals. And this shows us that everything is not allowed in Islam. There are things that are allowed and things that are not allowed. And we are to change our desires according to the law of Allah, not change the law of Allah to suit our own desires prohibited to you which means some things are not allowed in Islam. prohibited to you are dead animals meaning consuming them, eating them blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah and those animals that are killed by strangling or
by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by the goring of horns, so those from which are wild, and those from which a wild animal has eaten, except what you were able to slaughter meaning before it dies, and those which are sacrificed on stone altars, and also prohibited is that you seek decision through dividing arrows. This was a game of chance that the Arabs would play gambling, that is grave disobedience. This day. Those who disbelieve have despaired of defeating your religion so fear them not, but fear me for lotto showhome while shoni Aloma achimota la cadena comb this day, I have perfected for you your religion? Well at Manta la come near Mati and I have completed my favor
upon you what a Li to LA como Islam, Medina, and I have approved for you Islam as religion, but whoever is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin, then Indeed, Allah is Forgiving, and merciful. So we see over here, the blessing of the completion of the religion of Islam, that there is guidance regarding every matter. And this, in fact, is a huge blessing. This is the perfection of blessings, the completion of blessings. And this shows us that beyond Islam, there is no need of another religion. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the final prophet, the Seal of the Prophets. And remember that the religious commands the commands of Quran of the sooner they
are enough, they're sufficient, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there is nothing that draws you closer to Jenna, except that I have instructed you on it. And there is nothing that draws you closer to hell, except that I have forbidden you from it. So really, there is no need to add anything to Islam, because Islam is complete and perfect. Yes, aluna kamada rohilla home, they ask you what has been made lawful for them cool. Hey, Lola, como, se lawful for you are all good foods, all good things, meaning everything has Hello, except for what has been declared unlawful. And also lawful for you is the game caught by what you have trained of hunting animals,
which you train as Allah has taught you. So each of what they catch for you and mentioned the name of Allah upon it, and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is swift in account, it doesn't take long for him to call people to account. So we see in this ayah, that only that hunt is lawful, which was hunted properly. And what is the proper way of hunting that before shooting the arrow or releasing the train hound, a person takes the name of Allah, and he sees that the hound has actually caught the prey for him and not itself. And this is shows us the virtue of knowledge of training, that the hunt, the catch of a hound that has been given knowledge that has been trained, is lawful, because
more mccolley been too early Muna Honda mimma, Allah como la. So this shows us the virtue of knowledge. aleo mohila lokomotiva. At this day, all good foods have been made lawful for you. And the food of those who are given the Scripture is also lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them, because both of you mentioned the name of Allah. But remember that if a Muslim slaughter is an animal and does not mention the name of Allah, then that animal is not any deliberately leaves it out knowingly leaves it out, then that animal is not going to be lawful for consumption. And likewise, the people of the book also have this slaughter and they don't mention the name of Allah
than eating that animal would be sinful. As it is mentioned in the Quran, for inaho, Fisk, and lawful in marriage are chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who are given the Scripture before you. But what is the condition? If a man wishes to marry a woman from the people of the book? What is the condition, either title Muna or Judah Han, when you have given them their due compensation, meaning you have to give them their money as well. This is so important, whether a man is marrying a slave woman, a free woman, a Muslim woman or a Christian or Jewish woman, from the people of the book, then he must give them to her to her. This is an
obligation. The mahad is not as the right of a free Muslim woman. The man has the right of every woman that a Muslim man marries, whether she is a slave, or she is free, or she is Muslim, or she is a Jew or a Christian. And of course, it is well known that a Muslim man is not allowed to marry a mushrik woman that has already been mentioned in Surah Baqarah. We learned in our holidays, that the manner by which a woman is made lawful to a man belongs to her
Meaning the mother becomes her property. It is her legal right? And after Nika after the marriage, whatever is given to her father, or brother or guardian as an honor belongs to him, and a person is most deserving to be respected because of his daughter or his sister, Subhana. Allah, we are being told in this Hadees that a man deserves to be respected, because of the fact that his daughter is your wife, that his sister is your wife, any man deserves respect for this. But it's unfortunate how we consider in laws to be worthy of no respect, especially the family of the woman. It's as if they have no worth whatsoever. If they come over, that's a problem. And if they don't give gifts, if they
don't give hefty sums at the time of marriage, then they will forever be disrespected. We we feel that they have no rights whatsoever. Any, it's amazing, and in what kind of manners have we adopted from from which cultures This is an Islamic. So we see in this Hadees that you know, the person who gives you their daughter or their sister in marriage, they deserve respect them, the person who has any raised their son, and now that that son of theirs is your husband, any that that those parents deserve your respect. So in laws are not to be mistreated. They're not enemies, they're not to be disrespected. They are to be respected, more slean desiring chastity layer on more Sathya hain not
unlawful sexual intercourse, while I'm with Doheny, Dan, or taking secret lovers. So even if a Muslim man intends to marry a Christian woman, for example, then this relationship should be established in the right way, in the legal way, and that is through Nika. Meaning don't just keep her as a girlfriend, no, marry her properly, just because she's not a Muslim, and she doesn't know about her rights, then it doesn't mean that you take advantage of her know, give her her due rights, and whoever denies the faith, his work has become worthless, and he in the hereafter will be among the losers. He will be a bankrupt person.
All you who have believed when you rise to perform prayer, then wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows, and wipe your heads and wash your feet to the ankles. And if you are in a state of Geneva, then purify yourselves meaning take a bath. But if you are ill, or on a journey, or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself, meaning you need to make will do to pray or you have contacted women and do not find water you need to make listen now but you cannot find water. Then seek clean Earth meaning make to move how and wipe over your faces and hands with it. Allah does not intend to make difficulty for you. And this is the reason why Allah has created these allow Allah
tada has legislated these allowances, but he intends to purify you. This is a reason why if you cannot make whoodle then you should make to mom because remember, yes, we'll do purifies us physically. But it's not just physical purification will do is also a means of spiritual purification. It is a means of removing sin. This is why when a person cannot make will do, they're supposed to make to mom because they are mom also will be a source of purification. If not physically, then certainly spiritually and Allah wishes to complete his favor upon you, that you may be grateful. So remember, we will do is actually a blessing. It is not a chore. It is a blessing. It
is a means of purification for us. apparent and hidden the law had and the baffling the external and the internal and we'll do is a part of faith. We learned is bourbon we'll do perfecting will do meaning properly making will do is shut through a man. It is a big portion of a man it is a part of a man.
We also learn in a Hadees that none of you who uses water for ablution and renders his mouth snuffs up water and blows it but the sins of his face and his mouth and his nostrils fall out when he washes his face. As Allah has commanded him. The sins of his face fall out from the end of his beard with water than when he washes his forearms up to the elbows, the sins of his arms fall out along with water from his fingertips. And when he wipes his head, the sins of his head fall out from the point of his hair along with water. And when he washes his feet up to the ankles, the sins of his feet fall out from his toes along with water and if he stands to pray and praises Allah and
glorifies him with what what is what He is worthy of and shows wholehearted devotion to Allah than his sins will depart, leaving him as innocent as he was on the day his mother gave birth to him. So panela This is why make will do happen.
Whenever it feels difficult to make will do remember that this will do is going to clean me. It's going to draw me closer to Allah. And remember that on the Day of Judgment, the oma of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how will they be? We learn that on the Day of Judgment, my the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, My people will come with bright faces, bright hands and feet, why from the traces of wuhou. So if any one of you can lengthen his brightness, let him do that. And that is done by making will do more frequently and making will do perfectly with guru near Matala. Here I lay calm, and remember the favor of Allah upon you which favor of Islam and his covenant,
which with which he bound you when you said, we hear and we obey and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of that within the trusts. So this shows us that we should remember the favours of Allah in our heart, also, we should mention them in our tongue. And because of that gratitude, we should also work in obedience to Allah, we should also perform acts of worship happily, not as a burden. Well, you have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from from being just so this means that even an enmity be fair. So there is no room for extremism in Islam, be just that is nearer to righteousness, and fear Allah,
Indeed, Allah is acquainted with what you do. So we see in this ayah, that justice has been mentioned that when a person is just unfair, then this is closer to the COA, and this is something that will bring them closer to Allah on the Day of Judgment. Also, we learn in the Hadith, that the people who are just those who practice or other they will be on pulpits of lights to the right of Allah subhanaw taala, meaning they will be close to Allah subhanaw taala. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds, that for them there's forgiveness and great reward. But those who disbelieve and deny our signs, those are the companions of hellfire. All you have believed,
remember the favor of Allah upon you, when a people determined to extend their hands against you. Some people wanted to harm you, but he withheld their hands from you, so they weren't able to harm you. Allah protected you and fear Allah and upon Allah let the believers rely because Allah is the one who protects. And Allah had already taken a covenant from the children of Israel, and we delegate it from among them, 12 leaders, and Allah said, I am with you. If you establish prayer, and gives a cat, look at the condition. If you want the help of Allah, then you have to do these two things, establish prayer and gives a cat and believe in my messengers and support them and loan
Allah a goodly loan spend in the way of Allah. And why is it called a loan, it's called a loan because Allah will repay you, I will surely remove from you your misdeeds and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow but whoever Have you disbelieved after that has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way, such a person has gone astray Furby man, luckily, he meets Africa home. So for their breaking of the covenant, we see that again, their breaking of the covenant has met is mentioned what happened when they violated when they breach the covenant. We curse them and made their hearts hard stuff in a law. You see when a person breaks the promises that they make with
Allah. What is that, like for example, a person begins a good deed that he or Allah, I promise, I will do this. Now. I will do this for your sake. But then they stop, they discontinue, they go back then this is a way of breaking the promise of Allah breaking a promise with Allah you made that commitment with Allah. Not with people, not with yourself. This was a commitment you made with Allah and then breaking that is going to have consequences. learner home. Think about it. If a person begins doing something good, right? They they sign a contract. They say that they will do something with you or for you, and then they stop. Then of course, you're not going to appreciate that. So
likewise, people who break their covenants with Allah, Lana home, we curse them, would you or Nakuru boom casia their hearts we made them hard. And what is the meaning of a hard heart, then the heart does not feel that love for Allah, that fear that reverence for Allah. It doesn't feel that humility before Allah than a person is okay with more acts of disobedience than a person is okay with committing sin after sin, and then nothing bothers them. JOHN noccalula
casia will rear the villa. What happens as a result of that, they distort words from their proper usages, then they begin to miss, you know, they begin to distort the meanings of the book of Allah also, why to suit their own desire. And they have forgotten a portion of that, of which they were reminded. They literally forget. They literally forget whatever Yeah, the Billa. You see, when the heart is hard, that a person is distanced from beneficial knowledge. And a person begins to forget the religion that he once upon a time knew when a person leaves, what is truly beneficial for them. And they forget what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded. They don't act upon the knowledge that they
know, then their condition does not improve. it deteriorates, even Masaru little della horn, who said, Sometimes a person forgets a portion of knowledge because of his sin. And then he recited this idea. And you will still observe deceit among them, except a few of them because they, they, they don't fear Allah. They just fear people, but pardon them and overlook their misdeeds. Indeed, Allah loves the doors of good. And from those who say we are Christians, we took their covenant, but they forgot a portion of that, of which they were reminded. So we caused among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. They also ignored, put aside, put behind their backs, left it in
their past, what are the things that Allah subhanaw taala had commanded? They forgot it and forgetting it doesn't mean that literally a person does not recall forgetting it also means pretending as if one doesn't know. And Allah is going to inform them about what they used to do. All people have the Scripture, there has come to you, our messenger, making clear to you much of what you use to conceal of the Scripture and overlooking much there has come to you from Allah, a light and a clear book. Yeah, db Hilah by which Allah guides who those who pursue his pleasure, Manitoba it Luana, who, the one who wants the pleasure of Allah, then he needs to look at the book of Allah.
He needs to see what the book of Allah says, where you're headed you sabula salaam to the ways of peace, where you hold your home in a volumetric Illa node, and he brings them out from darkness into the light. B Isn't he by his permission, where d him ilsley Laughlin was stalking him and he guides them to a straight path Subhan Allah sabula salaam is mentioned over here that through the Quran, a person is guided to sabula salaam, what are similar salon, remember, a salon is Allah, it is one of the names of Allah. So if you want to be on the way of Allah, the way that leads to Allah, Allah Who is the source of Salaam, then you have to follow the Quran, you have to open the book, you have to
read what it says you have to reflect on what it's teaching, and you have to bring that into action. And if you want peace, if you want to be secure, you want to feel secure, then follow the Quran. Because the Quran guides to Subala Salaam, the ways that lead to Islam and Islam can also mean safety and security. But that is only possible with the trophy of Allah. Remember, when a person eagerly desires to please Allah subhana wa tada and his tribes, he exerts effort, whether that effort is to read the book of Allah, listen to the book of Allah, try to understand the book of Allah, then Allah guides this person, if the intention is good, the yearning is sincere, then Allah
subhanaw taala will guide this person. And remember sabula salaam, the end of the destination of these ways is Jenna, which is darussalam, the home of security, we learn in the Hadees, that when a servant remains busy in the pursuit of Allah's pleasure, and keep striving towards it, then Allah says to gibreel that my servant is in pursuit of my pleasure. So bear in mind, that my mercy is on him. So gibreel says, May Allah's mercy be on so and so. And the carriers of the throne also say the same, and the angels around them say the same, and the inhabitants of the seven heavens say the same, and then the statement is descended to the earth. So then people also say that May Allah's
mercy be on so and so, along the journey I'm in home. They have certainly disbelieved who say that Allah is Christ, the son of Miriam, this is not EMA, and this is coffered say then who could prevent Allah at all, if he had intended to destroy Christ, the son of money, or his mother or everyone on the earth, and to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between them, he creates what He wills and Allah is over all things competent.
But the Jews and the Christians say, no obernai Allah, no Abernathy Allah He was a Hebrew or they say, we are the children of Allah and His beloved say, then why does he punish you for your sins, rather, you are human beings from among those whom he has created, he forgives him He wills and he punishes whom He wills and to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between them. And to him is the final destination. We see that the people of the book, they felt secure. They felt secure in their wrongdoing in their disobedience, and they felt secure from committing anything wrong, and such people are most at risk of falling into error. We learned that
once with Durga or the loved one who was praying, and he made gras in his Salah, seeking refuge of Allah against the FARC against hypocrisy. So after sada some people asked him that about Dada, May Allah forgive you. What have you got to do with hypocrisy? anyway? What Why are you asking Allah to protect you from hypocrisy? You're not a hypocrite. About rodilla horn who said Allah homophone, Allahu Allahu, Allah your pardon. I beg your pardon, I beg your forgiveness. And then he said, He who is fearless of a trial is not protected against it. He who is fearless of a trial is not protected against it, by Allah, in a single moment, a person is put into trial, and that can turn
him away from his religion. So a person must always be afraid, between fear and hope. Always. Yes, we do good to earn a less pleasure. And yes, we seek forgiveness for the mistakes that we make. But we should never feel that you know what, I am perfect. I am fine. I'm definitely going to Jenna. And you see the statement of the Jews and the Christians and the Abernathy Allah, he was a Hebrew. We are the Beloved of Allah, Allah loves us. And many people have this assumption that you know what Allah loves me. They confused between God's mercy and God's love. Remember God's mercy. Rama is for everybody. And in that there is no discrimination in this world. Allah subhanaw taala affects
everyone with his Rama, but his love his muhabba is for those who obey Him, those who worship Him. So we should not just be in this, you know, fantasy that you know what God loves me. God loves me and especially people think like this, when this when they have good things in life, they confuse mercy with love, we should have that good hope that in sha Allah, because I love Allah, and I strive to please Him. I hope that allowed to loves me and we should make da that he or Allah, I asked you for your love Aloma in the Luca hubback I beg you for your love. But we should never assume and take this for granted that you know what, I am the Beloved of Allah. Because when a person has this, you
know false concept, then they become arrogant. And when they become arrogant, then they feel it's okay for them to commit sin to cross the limits of Allah to compromise here and there to disregard some of the commands of Allah. Yeah, hello, Al Kitab, or People of the Scripture, there has come to you, our messenger to make clear to you the religion, after a period of suspension of messengers, lest you say there came not to us any bringer of good tidings or a warner. But there has come to you a bringer of good tidings and a warner and Allah is over all things competent, and mentioned a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when moosari salaam said to his people, that all my people
remember the favor of Allah upon you when he appointed among you prophets, and made you possessors and gave you that which he had not given anyone among the world's most artists, and I'm reminded as people of the blessings of Allah, why, so that they would feel grateful, and they would feel that they would have that motivation, and that willingness to obey Allah to follow Allah's commands. And then he gave them the command. He said, All my people enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned to you, and do not turn back from fighting and Allah is cause and thus become losers. Remember, the bunny is Raji, when they were set free from our own and across the sea, then eventually, he they
were not just to wander in the desert, they were supposed to go back to the place that they were originally from, and that was Palestine. So most artists and I'm told them to enter the city, but to enter the city, they would have to engage in some kind of battle. But they hesitated. They said, almost, indeed, within it is a people of tyrannical strength. And indeed, we will never enter it until they leave it. But if they leave it, then we will enter we have no problem entering the city. But we have a big problem. In fighting with these people, said two men from those who fear to disobey upon whom Allah had bestowed favor, enter upon them through
gate for when you have entered it, you will be predominant and upon Allah rely, if you should be believers, you see, when you want something good from Allah subhanaw taala, you have to take the first step, you take the first step, Allah will take 10 steps towards you, you have to do what is within your ability, and Allah who will give you the strength, Allah will open the ways for you, Allah has helped will also come. But if you just sit in one place and say, I'm not going to do anything I want Allah's help first, then how can a person who does not help himself, expect the help of others, because Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change what is within
themselves. They said, almost, indeed, we will not enter it ever as long as they're within it. So go You and your Lord and fight in hoonah pari Lune. Indeed, we are remaining right here, a soffit of love. They said this to moosari surrounded we're not going to do anything. And this is yes shocking to us. But sometimes, this is what we do as well, where we just want to believe in our heart and do nothing in our practical lives. We just want to enter gender based on what we say we claim to believe. We don't want to do anything. We don't want to slam to dictate how we eat, how we dress, how we speak, etc. We want to do whatever we want. And we say in hoonah Cardon, mozarella his Salaam
said, My Lord, indeed I do not possess except myself and my brother. So part of us from the defiantly disobedient people will sorry, who said I was also fed up now, he wanted to be distanced from such people. Allah subhanaw taala said that indeed, it is forbidden to them for 40 years in which they will wander throughout the land. So do not grieve over the defiantly disobedient people. Amazing. How can the person who does not even try Excel expect any aid if we want help? If we want good, then we have to take the first step and recite to them the story of Adams two sons in truth, when they both offered a sacrifice to Allah, and it was accepted from one of them. Why because his
intention was good, but was not accepted from the other because the intention was wrong, said the letter I will show the kill you because he was angry and jealous, said the former Indeed, Allah only accepts from the righteous who fear him Subhana Allah, on the surface, two people did the exact same action, but the action of one was accepted, and the action of the other was not accepted. What's the difference? The difference is the intention. One person's intention was sincere. He did what he did from a place of the core with the taqwa of Allah, they were stuck when the heart the fear of a lion, the heart and there was the core that was exhibited in the manner also. So remember, the acceptance
of deeds is not based on the mere performance of deeds. Just because we have done something we should not take it for granted that you know what, this is accepted. No. The acceptance of deeds is based on the intention, the taqwa the fear of a law with which it was done, let imbecile Illa yada. If you should raise your hand against me to kill me, I shall not raise my hand against you to kill you. Indeed, I fear Allah, Lord of the worlds Indeed, I want you to obtain there by my sin and your sin. So you will be among the companions of the Fire. And that is the recompense of wrongdoers. He's warning him and his soul permitted him the murder of his brother, so he killed him and became among
the losers, you see how one thing leads to another and it all begins with a corrupt intention, a bad intention, which leads them to jealousy, to hatred, to cuttle, to murder, to oppression, loss upon loss. So what happened? Then Allah sent a crow searching in the ground, to show him how to hide the disgrace of his brother because this was the first death. So he didn't even know what to do with the body. He said, Oh, war to me, have I failed to be like this Crow, and hide the body of my brother. And he became of the regretful but the regret alone did not save him. It was too late. Regret alone is not enough. Remember, sometimes we feel horrible because of the wrong things that we have done.
And we sit with that horrible feeling. Oh, move beyond that horrible feeling, move, do something with that regret. And that regret should turn into seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala being humble before Allah. So anytime that you feel bad in your heart, about what you did, about what you said, about what you you know how you treated someone, or the fact that you neglected in your duty to Allah than don't just loathe yourself, and don't just curse yourself that you know what, I'm so bad. No, saying I'm so bad is not enough.
Doing something after that is what is required. We're not what is expected from us is not that we just put ourselves down. That is not the goal that we put ourselves down, that we hate ourselves. No, that is not what is required of us. what is required of us is that when we feel that guilt, that shame, then we turn to Allah, we say your Allah forgive me, your Allah, I am sorry, Your Allah I made a mistake, turn that guilt into humility. And so far, because of that, we decreed upon the children of Israel, that whoever kills a soul, unless for a soul, or for corruption done in the land, it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And this shows us the enormity of the crime of
murder. And whoever saves one, it is as if he had saved mankind eternally sorry, and whoever saves one, it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. Saving one life is like saving all people. This is how sacred human life is. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs, that Indeed, many of them even after that, throughout the land, war, transgressors, indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and this waging war is specifically referring to disrupting peace in the land.
Which is to which is by inviting war against a lion is messenger by committing acts of violence. And this is why the ruler might have said that this is that this is that this refers to crimes such as highway robbery, or rape, or acts of aggression and violence. Then remember, for such violence, there is severe penalty. So those people who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive upon earth to cause corruption, they disrupt the peace in the land, so people don't feel secure anymore. People remain in fear. A woman does not feel safe, even stepping out of her house, going to the market to just fulfill basic needs any so often it happens, that children are not safe. Women
are not safe. Forget about children and women. Men are even not safe because of violent acts in society, than such violent people need to be punished very severely. What is the punishment for them? Allah says it is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides, or that or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world, and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment except for those who return repenting before you apprehend them and know that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Yeah, you Halina amanu all you who have believed fear Allah, Weber tahu, la Hill was sila, and seek the means of
nearness to him and strive in His cause, that you may succeed, meaning, do things that will draw you closer to Allah wa Alberto la Hill was sila. He do something to be close to Allah. And how is that he performed acts of righteousness. You see, we do such thing lowly things at times, just to be in the good books of people, just so that people remember us. They don't forget about us, right? We do different favors to them. And that's okay. That's fine. But we should think about, you know, if we truly love Allah, then how much are we trying to be close to him? What is it that draws us close to Allah? It is acts of righteousness. For example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a
similar to Kuru burn, Salah is a means of closeness to Allah. Such the prostrating accruable Maya cannula Abu Mira be here who are Sajid the closest that a person can be to his Lord is when this person is in a state of center. The recitation of the Quran because remember,
the people of Quran whom Allah Allah, they are the people of Allah, they're his special servants, and then worshipping Allah at certain times, because we are an equitable Maya Kula rub woman and rbtv Jovi laden acid, the closest that the Lord is to the servant is in the last portion of the night. So worshipping Allah at that time reciting Quran making the raw, so Roberto la Hill was sila, do something and seek the means of nearness to him. It's not just based on your wishes, you know, I love God and I love to be close to him well, but to who seek that, seek that connection, do something to have that connection. And this also means that when you're making the wrong then before
you make the wrong seek a will sila, meaning perform righteous deeds.
Before you make draw, so that your draw is accepted, Indeed, those who disbelieve if they should have all that is in the earth, and the like of it with it, by which to ransom themselves from the punishment of the Day of Resurrection, it will not be accepted from them, and for them is a painful punishment, they will wish to get out of the fire, but never are they to emerge there from and for them is an enduring punishment. As for the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands, in recompense for what they committed, as a determine as a deterrent punishment from Allah. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. Remember, the laws that are lost punctata has given in Islam,
therefore reason, remember that there's some goals that there are some mocassin, some objectives of the laws of the [???]tier. And one of them is the preservation of the wealth of people, that people's wealth, their property should be safe. So if anyone violates that, and, and harms people financially, by stealing, by committing theft, then there's going to be serious consequences for that. And remember, this the punishment for theft itself shows us that theft is a serious crime. And this is something we need to teach our children from a young age that theft is not allowed, because it is these habits, you know, that develop at a very young age. And then, and then when these
people, even as they grow older, they don't have any shame in taking the property of others. Remember when a person commits theft, than a man leaves them at that time. So this is not just a sin against people. This is a sin against Allah. But whoever repents after his wrongdoing, and remember, doba is not just, you know, feeling guilt and seeking forgiveness, after tober is also what US law, her, and he and he reforms, and part of that reform is to return the stolen object. Part of that reform is to reform oneself. So a person makes that intention that I'm not going to back to the I'm not going back to the same crime again. Then Indeed, Allah will turn to Him in forgiveness. Indeed,
Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
This is also so beautiful. You see, if someone has ever committed something wrong against us, we never forgive them. We always remember their wrongdoing, even if it was committed, like 20 years ago, and we will pass on that resentment to our children who will grow up with that resentment and they will keep that resentment, right. We don't allow. We don't allow ourselves to forgive. And we should remember that if Allah forgives people for in the La Jolla tube or LA in the la foto Rahim if Allah forgives, then who are we? What are we? Why do we think of ourselves is such a big deal that we think we cannot forgive people? Do you not know that to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens
and the earth. He punishes whom He wills and forgives whom He wills, and Allah is over all things competent, all messenger, let them not grieve you who hasten into disbelief of those who say we believe with their mouths, but their hearts believe not, these are the hypocrites, and from among the Jews, they're avid listeners to false hood, listening to another people who have not come to you. Meaning they only come to spy for them, they distort words beyond their proper usage is saying, if you are given this, take it but if you are not given it, then beware meaning only if the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam suit you then take them and if they don't suit you,
then don't take them. This is not servitude. Remember, we should be pleased with all of the commands of Allah, all of his decrees all of his decisions, whether we find them easy or hard. But he for whom Allah intense fitna, never will you possess power to do for him a thing against Allah. Those are the ones for whom Allah does not intend to purify their hearts, for them in this world is a disgrace, and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment. And remember, if the heart is not pure, if the heart is not cleaned, then what will become of such a person? Allah does not intend to purify the hearts of such people. That is less of a person depends on the Islam, the correctness of
their heart, summer on a lil Caribe, a calluna Resort. They are avid listeners to false devours of what is unlawful. You see, just as we should not feed our bodies impure foods. We should not feed our ears falsehood either.
We're very particular about how non food but we're not that particular about what we're watching what we're listening to. We will make it such a big deal if we find out that there is money
Muslim who drinks alcohol and yes, it is a big deal. We will condemn them and we will shame them and we will go to any lengths in order to you know, oppose their behavior, but we need to really reflect on ourselves. Okay? We may not be drinking alcohol but we need to check what is going into our ears. What kind of conversations do we participate in? Do we listen to backbiting? Do we listen to vulgar songs do we listen to you know sounds that Allah subhanaw taala does not a lot that does not like so we have to be careful about what we feed our bodies, what we feed our hearts and what we feed our wallets. We have to be concerned about how we are earning money because a calluna is served served
as mentioned over here, unlawful wealth, and unlawful wealth is called search because it destroys good deeds. It obliterates them, it ruins a person's dignity. We don't know the holidays, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sent him said that all people have shyness of Allah, that is the human Allah he happens to have shyness of Allah the way he deserves, that you should have shyness.
So the companion said that we are shy of Allah. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this is not what I mean. How can hyah to have shyness of Allah, the way he deserves, is that you guard the head, and what it contains, and that you guard the stomach and what it contains, and that you remember death and deterioration, the disintegration of bones, meaning having shyness of Allah means that you guard what your head contains, meaning you guard your eyes, your ears, your mouth, have sharp have shyness of Allah, you guard the stomach and what it contains, meaning Be careful of what you put in your stomach, but only lawful food. And remember, the stomach doesn't
just refer to the button, the part where the food goes, but also the torso which includes any the private part also the hands, the feet have shyness of Allah. So, summer owner, Lil Kevin, a calluna lizards, Allah Subhana, Allah says about such people for injure oak for colombina, home, on home, if they come to you, then judge between them, or turn away from them. And if you turn away from them, never will they harm you at all. And if you judge judge between them with justice, Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly. But how is it that they come to you for judgment, while they have the total in which is the judgment of Allah than the turn away, even after that, but those are not, in
fact, believers. Indeed, we sat down to total in which was the guidance and light in which was guidance and light, the prophets who submitted to Allah, judged by it for the Jews, as did the rabbis and the scholars, by that which they were interested of the Scripture of Allah, and they were witnesses there too. So do not fear the people, but fear me and do not exchange my verses for a small price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, then it is those who are the disbelievers. And we are deigned for them there in a life for a life and I for an eye, a nose for a nose and ear for an ear, a tooth for tooth and for wounds is legal retribution. So remember this,
there is this loss for wounding someone for injuring someone. So for example, if a person breaks the tooth of another, then besides is that the person who broke the tooth of the other than his tooth will be broken in retaliation, this is the law of cause loss. But then it is mentioned that whoever forgives, then that is better. And remember, that when a person when a person pardons another, no servant pardons and injustice, except that Allah will increase him in honor because of that, on the day of judgment. So yes, work the sauce is allowed. pardoning forgiving is something better, and it will be a source of honor for a person not just in this life, but also on the Day of Judgment. And
we sent following in their footsteps there he saw the son of money, early his salon, confirming that which came before him and the total and we gave him the MG, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which proceeded it of the total as guidance and instruction for the righteous. And let the people of the NGO judged by what Allah has revealed there in and whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, that it is those who are the defiantly disobedient, you see the people of the book, what they would do is that if ever they did not want to follow the law of their scripture, they would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam expecting that perhaps his judgment will
be easier, it will be according to our desires. So it is being said basically, that here you are denying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and yet you come to him for judgment.
You deny him because you say you are the People of the Scripture? Well, you have the Scripture, why don't you follow it. So the fact is that these people didn't really believe they actually followed their own desires.
And we see that when people disregard the law of Allah, that we learn in Hades, that poverty will spread among them in another narration, there will be strife between them. So the law that Allah has revealed in the Quran, that is to be followed, not ignored. And we have revealed to you a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the book in truth, confirming that which preceded it off the Scripture, and as a criterion over it, so judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. to each of you. We prescribed a law and a method had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation, but he intended to test you in
what he has given you. So race to all that is good. First, the vehicle hierarchy. You see, there are some people who use the law, to follow their desire so that we can choose and then there's other people who use the law, to, to rush in good work to accumulate good deeds to Allah is your return altogether. And he will then inform you concerning that over which you use to defer and judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them less they tempt you away from some of what Allah has revealed to you. And if they turn away, then know that Allah only intends to afflict them with some of their own sins. And indeed, many among the
people are defiantly disobedient. So we seen this idea very clearly the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told one of whom do not follow their desires. So remember, following one's own desire, or the desires of people, this is a means of misguidance. If a hook manager helliya to boon, then is it the judgment of the time of ignorance they seek, but who is better than Allah in judgment for people who are certain in faith? What is ignorance? What is joy? helliya it refers to the era prior to Islam. So j Leija is the opposite of Islam. What is the law of Allah, that is guidance, it is light, it is knowledge, and anything that contradicts the law of Allah that opposes the law of Allah that
goes against it, then that is a helliya. That is darkness and ignorance. Yeah. Are you her Latina? Manu? Oh, you have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They're in fact, allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them, among you, then indeed, he is one of them. Indeed, Allah guides, not the wrongdoing, people. You see the hypocrites clung to their previous alliances with the people of the book, even though the People of the Book had declared their open enmity to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So it is set to the Muslims, that are you going to take the profit as your enemy? Meaning if you're going to keep your alliances with the people of the
book, who have declared war against the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, then what are you doing? You are siding with those? Who are the enemy to the messenger? Are you going to be an enemy to your own messenger? So you see those in whose hearts is disease, hastening into association with them, saying we are afraid of misfortune may strike us meaning we have to keep those alliances for our own safety, but perhaps Allah will bring conquest or a decision from him, and they will become over what they have been concealing within themselves, regretful and those who believe will say, Are these the ones who swore by Allah, their strongest olts? That indeed they were with you? their deeds
have become worthless, and they have become losers? Yeah, you have Latina or Manu, or you will have believed whoever Have you should revert from his religion, meaning if there is any Muslim who is thinking about leaving Islam, then you know what, go ahead. But remember, for Sophia Tila, who become Allah who will bring forth a people, meaning in your place, Allah will bring another people. The fact is that your Islam is a favor to nobody, but you, Allah does not need you. And so if you leave Islam, you cannot cause any harm to Allah.
You will only cause harm to yourself and Allah will replace you with someone else. You hit boom, when you hit buena. These people, Allah will love them and they will love him. He will love your hair boom. He will love them when you have Buddha who and they will love him. This is so beautiful. You see, Allah loves his righteous servants, and when his righteous servants also love him. This is such a beautiful, really
Because love is beautiful when it is reciprocated, all people claim to love Allah. But what matters is if Allah loves them in return, if Allah accepts their good deeds, and remember, that he man when a person has faith, this is a sign that Allah subhanaw taala loves them in a Hadees we learn that in Allah you till malama you hibou Allah you hibou that Allah gives wealth to those who he loves, and also those whom he does not love. What are you till he man ilam and Hubba. But he does not give a man except to the one whom he loves. So when Allah loves a servant, he gives him a man. Allah gives him faith. So be grateful for the blessing of a man, this is a privilege, this is a gift, and do not
take it for granted. Do not think that you're doing anyone a favor. In fact, favor has been done to you.
Those who are humble toward the believers, they care for one another, powerful against the disbelievers. They strive in the cause of Allah, and do not fear the blame of a critic confident that is the favorable law, He bestows it upon whom He wills, and Allah is all encompassing and knowing your ally is none but Allah, and therefore His Messenger, and those who have believed those who establish prayer and gives a cow and they bow in worship, they're obedient to Allah. And whoever is an ally of and whoever is an ally of Allah and His messenger and those who have believed indeed the party of Allah, they will be predominant. Yeah, Are you her Latina, Armand, oh, all you will
have believed. Take not those who have taken your religion in ridicule and amusement, among the ones who were given the Scripture before you, nor the disbelievers as allies. Someone who makes fun of your religion who ridiculed your religion, they're not a friend. So don't be deceived by them, and fear Allah, if you should truly be believers, what even datum is solid, and when you call, and when you call to prayer, they take it in ridicule and amusement. Why? That is because there are people who do not use reason, meaning they make fun of the other than you see a reasonable person, an intelligent person does not make fun of others. He doesn't find mockery of others entertaining at
all, when most our listener was asked by his people, are you joking with us? Are you making fun of us, he said, are the biLlahi and akuna minal jacquelene. I seek Allah's protection lest I be of those who are ignorant. This is a sign of being unintelligent, that a person has fun by making fun of others by mocking them. Remember, when the event is made, we should listen attentively, we should respond, we should not make fun of the event. Sometimes it happens that the person who is making the time you know, they sound
strange, their voice becomes too shrieky, etc. No, focus on the words that are being said.
We don't know how these either Sumitomo NIDA for colome. Islamia called more than that when you hear the other than say what the oven says, meaning respond to the event. And then after the event, make da say, oh, People of the Scripture, do you resent us except for the fact that we have believed in Allah? Why do you make fun of us? Is it because we believe in Allah, and what was revealed to us and what was revealed before and because most of you are defiantly disobedient. So remember, someone who marks at you, it doesn't mean that there's a problem with you. There's actually a problem with them. Say, shall I inform you of what is worse than that as penalty from Allah, it is that of those whom
Allah has cursed, and with whom he became angry and made of them, apes and pigs and slaves of thought. Those are worse in position, and further astray from the sound way. And when they come to you, they say we believe, but they have entered with disbelief, and they have certainly left with it. And Allah is most knowing of what they were concealing, and you see many of them hastening into sin and aggression and the devouring of what is unlawful, how wretched is what they have been doing. Why do the rabbis and religious scholars not forbid them from saying what is sinful and devouring what is unlawful? You see over here, the religious collars of the Jews and Christians are the rabbi.
They're rabbis, the rabbis of the Al Kitab they're being condemned, that you know this scripture, you know the law, yet you don't stop people from doing what is wrong. And this is a responsibility of the people of knowledge that when people are doing something wrong, then stop them when people are behaving ignorantly then teach them knowledge is not just something of privilege, something that you know, you're proud over that you have a degree you
Have a certification and you just hang that handout on your wall and you're proud of it. No knowledge is supposed to be taught. It's supposed to be disseminated so that people come out of darkness, how wretched is what they have been practicing. So stop people from the wrongs that they're doing. And a lot of times people are doing wrong simply because they don't know. People are not doing right because simply they don't know. And sometimes we come up with things like you know what, to each their own. Know, we learn in a Hadees the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, When sin is done in the earth, He who is present there and disapproves of it will be considered as
though he was not present. But he who is not present and approves of it will be considered as though he was present as though he was a participant. So when you approve of a sin, then you are also guilty of it. So do something, voice, your concern, at least express the truth in whatever way that you can. But please be wise, be careful, don't be aggressive, don't be arrogant. And don't start you know, passing judgment on people commanding what is right for bidding what is wrong does not mean passing judgment. That Oh, you know what, you are going to hell? No, commanding what is right for bidding what is evil means informing people that you know what, this is not right. This is actually
against the law of Allah. This is something that is not permissible. And once you have done your part, that is sufficient, but please be wise, be courteous. Observe the prophetic Allah. Our problem is that we become very aggressive when we do a movement model for nahan. And Wonka, will become very rude. very harsh, we start condemning people to eternal damnation.
We start belittling them. And this is the reason why a lot of times people don't want to be told, they say, mind your own business. And don't tell me and this is something we need to be careful of, even online, but I would say especially online, we see your post, and immediately we start saying this is how long, immediate we don't know them. And we start sending messages to people that you know what this is, this is something that is, you know, how long if you're saying something is how long then you better present an evidence. And you better do it with courtesy. You better do it in a nice way in the way that the prophets did. We'll call it tilia who do your doula hemo Lula, and the
Jews say the hand of Allah is chained? chained are their hands and cursed are they for what they say? Rather, both his hands are extend our extended bayada Houma Basu thought and he spends however he wills. Think about it. How much does Allah subhanaw taala give to his servants? every single moment, Allah subhanaw taala is showering his blessings upon His servants. Yet, there are some among people who have the audacity to say that Allah is stingy, a stuff it'll look. How tolerant is Allah though? How forbearing Allah is in a Hadees we learn, no one is more patient than Allah. They claim he has a son, and yet and they attribute a partner to him. And yet He grants them security. He
protects them, he provides them and he gives them blessings. sopran Allah, and this is something we need to think about. That if people do not spare God, if they don't spare Allah, do you think they will spare you and I and that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. And we have cast among them animosity and hatred, until the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindle the fire of war against you, Allah extinguished it, Allah protected you, and they strive throughout the land causing corruption, and Allah does not like corrupters and if only the People of the Scripture had believed and feared Allah, we would have
removed from them their misdeeds and admitted them to Gardens of Pleasure sopran Allah after all this wrongdoing, Allah still invites them to repent. Yes, Allah invites everybody to repent. Remember, in the Hadees, we learned that if you were to commit sin, until your sins reached the heaven, the sky, then you were to repent, your repentance would be accepted. And if only they upheld the law of the total, how is it that the law of the Scripture is upheld, that a person learns it, and then he acts upon it? If they had upheld the law, the total and the indeed, and what has been revealed to them from their Lord, meaning they'll put on they would have consumed provision from
above them and from beneath their feet. Among them are a moderate community, but many of them evil is that which they do Subhan Allah, this is the benefit of following the book of Allah, of learning the book of Allah and following it. What
that a person will then eat from above and from below, meaning they will be showered with the blessings of Allah. Allah will open the doors of His provision upon them. Even our boss said, this is rain from above, and vegetation from the earth. Because when we get the pillar hired your Allahu Maharaja, were zoku min Hayes who later said, Whoever fears Allah, Allah creates a way out for him and provides him from where he does not even expect so much provision that a person cannot even imagine. But a lot of times when it comes to following the Quran, you know, we have this fear we have formal, we fear that we're not going to be able to enjoy good things in life. No, you obey
Allah. And remember, sustenance comes from Allah. And if you please Him, if you become His Beloved, and Allah loves you, then do you think he is going to deprive you. And remember learning the deen learning sacred knowledge, in fact, opens the doors of provision for a person where they're at in their head, these that there were two brothers during the time of the prophets of Allah who are using them. And one of them used to come to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in order to learn, and the other would work me to get some business. So the man, the brother who would work he came to the Prophet sallallahu urges him and complained that you know what, my brother comes here every day, and
he doesn't come to work with me. And you know, he should work with me, so we should have more wealth, etc. And the Prophet sallallahu earlier said and said, perhaps you are provided, because of him, that perhaps because of the blessing of your brother, learning, sacred knowledge, you are also being provided. So remember, we need to study the book of Allah, and we also need to implement it, and then the good things in life will be opened up to us. We learned that some of our city in said that we got ourselves busy with the Quran, and blessings and good things in the world enveloped us. We learn a Buddha used to say that because of the recitation of the Quran, a house becomes vast for
its inhabitants. The angels are present in it, the devil's leave it and it's goodness increases and when put on is not recited in a house, that it becomes constricted for its inhabitants. The angels Leave it, the devils are present in it. And it's goodness is decreased. Yeah, a euroschool or messenger announce that which has been revealed to you convey what has been revealed to you from your Lord. And if you do not, then you have not, then you have not conveyed his message and Allah who will protect you from the people. Indeed, Allah does not guide the disbelieving people. So remember, everything that the prophets of Allah who already have said I'm taught, whether it is in
the form of Quran, the verses of the Quran, which are recited, or the teachings that he gave meaning Hadees all of that is based on revelation. So we have to take both, say, all people have the Scripture, you're standing on nothing until you uphold the law, the total the gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord, and that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief, so do not grieve over the disbelieving people. Indeed, those who have believed meaning in the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, and those before Him, who are Jews, or sabians, are Christians, those among them who believed in Allah
and the Last Day ended righteousness, no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve? We had already taken the covenant of the children of Israel, and had sent to them messengers, whenever there came to them a messenger with what their souls did not desire, a party of messengers they denied, and another party they killed, and they thought there would be no resulting punishment. So they became blind and deaf, then a lot turn to them in forgiveness, he gave them another chance because Allah is at the web, then again, many of them became blind and deaf, as if they heard nothing. They saw nothing. They played ignorant, and Allah is seeing of what they do. They have
certainly disbelieved who say, Allah is the Messiah, the Son of Mary, while the Messiah has said all children of Israelite Eve worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord, indeed he who associates others with Allah, Allah has forbidden him paradise and his refuges the fire, and there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers, they have certainly disbelieved who say Allah is the third of three. And there is no god except one. This is the reality and if they do not desist from what they're saying, they will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment of Elia to Buddha Ada law. So Will they not repent to Allah? After learning all this? Will they not make Toba? Were still Fiona
and seek His forgiveness? Why do they hesitate? Do they feel that Allah will not?
Do they feel that Allah will not forgive them?
Because Willa, hula photo Rahim and allies Forgiving and Merciful. You see, sometimes we hesitate saying sorry to people, because we know that they will not accept our apology.
So we are afraid to further humiliate ourselves. But don't think like that when you have to seek forgiveness from Allah. Allah loves to forgive. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said or Asha. If you ever go close to a sin, then seek forgiveness because regret and seeking forgiveness are repentance.
The Messiah son of Miriam was not but a messenger. Other messengers have passed on before him, and his mother was a supporter of truth Siddiqa. They both used to eat food, look at how we make clear to them the signs, then look how they are diluted money on already has Cena is praised over here she's called sleep de la. Remember, sleepy Thea is a very high station, it is a station after that of prophethood and it is for men and for women. So D is a person who is habitually truthful, who always speaks the truth. So there is a person who is unquestionably believing, ever confirming, attesting to and believing in the truth that image does do. So his mother was a significant and we
should also be of those who speak the truth.
And yet, we see that the bunny is slightly ill did not spare her. They accused her of Xena say do you worship besides Allah that which holds for you know power of harm or benefit? While it is Allah who is the hearing the knowing, say, oh People of the Scripture, do not exceed limits in your religion beyond the truth, and do not follow the inclinations of a people who had gone astray before and misled many and have strayed from the soundness of the way. Don't change your religion in imitation of others. Cursed were those who disbelieved among the children of Israel, by the tongue of their would have resigned the son of money and that was because they disobeyed and habitually
transgressed. Imagine these prophets curse their own people, how much these people must have harassed them. They used to not prevent one another from wrongdoing that they did, how wretched was
how wretched was that which they were doing. So by not forbidding evil, they became equally guilty. You see many of them becoming allies of those who have disbelieved how wretched is that which they have put forth for themselves, in that Allah has become angry with them, and in the punishment, they will abide eternally. And if they had believed in Allah, and the Prophet, and in what was revealed to him, they would not have taken them as allies, but many of them are defiantly disobedient, you will surely find the most intense of the people and animosity toward the believers to be the Jews and those who associate others with Allah, the polytheists and you will find the nearest of them in
affection to the believers, those who say we are Christians. Why, why the difference? That is because among them are priests and monks, and because they are not arrogant. So you see arrogance. This is the root cause of a lot of evil. It is arrogance that does not allow us to forgive people. It is arrogance that makes us stubborn on our wrong. It is arrogance that prevents us from repenting to Allah subhanaw taala May Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to be humble servants to be Rossi Hoon, a failure in those who accept the impact of knowledge so that they fear Allah, they're humble with the creation, and they do not belittle people.
