Find a co working with Allahumma barakatu How's everyone doing today?
handling US and China. We're going to begin our session and today because we just have to memorize $1 and it's very short one. So we're going to cover the book we were supposed to cover in the session. So is everyone very, so inshallah let's begin. So today we are going to talk about some names of Ramadan, some you can say titles and some description about Ramadan and Alhamdulillah the book we have got it has all the proofs but in total we're going to talk about a few more things to inshallah, remember these details and benefit from the month of Ramadan. Alright, inshallah we're going to begin properly by praising Allah subhanaw taala and sending Salawat on sudo Allah
sallallahu Sallam first, and then from there, I will go and start talking about Ramadan in the handler medigoo and assign a woman as the hero when I was a bit lagging in sruti and fusina mean say yeah, Dr. Melina Mejia de Lange for now mobile Lana mama you will find a hi Deanna pasado en la isla in the long wagon, luxury Cara eyeshadow ana Muhammadan arbitrable or Zulu elder Villa him in a shade one or Jean Bismillah R Rahman Al Rahim, rubbish roughly surgery where you silly Omri watnall okidata melissani yokocho only Allah homophobic navidi near la give us the correct understanding of the the relay enable us to benefit from this month and also from these sessions.
So Ramadan is the blessed month in which Allah showers is special mercy and blessings on his servants, all of us the devils are chained and Allah encourages His servants to excel in good deeds so that performing good deeds is easier for us. Why because devil are chained and there are two names which are going to cover today inshallah. So one is that Ramadan is the month of mercy, Shahada Rama, it's the month of mercy and how do we know that there's a hadith from a Muslim it says is a Ghana Ramadan foot he had a guava Walkman when it is the month of Ramadan, the gates of mercy are opened. So this is a great opportunity for all of us, that we all are in need of mercy. And we
have talked about mercy before as well in other draa. So in this Hadees, we also learned that this is the month when it's easier for us to attain mercy, because the gates are opened. So you know, it's just like, when gates are open for something, you know, it's an easy access, right? But it doesn't mean that you just sit there and do nothing and hope to mercy, hope or mercy to come to you, instead of going towards it. You know, just like let me give an example to do with shopping. So you know that there are there's a shop and its doors are open. And you're sitting home and very happy that the shops doors are open and really excited shops doors are open but you're not going you're
not getting what you want, then you're not benefiting from those open doors Make sense? So similarly, yes, Ramadan, opens doors for us have mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But if you're not going to avail this time, if you're not going to do good deeds, we won't be able to benefit from this mercy. So inshallah, the smart thing to do would be to do something in order to get Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala as May Allah enable us to do that. And another name today we're going to cover is shadow Baraka. So Ramadan is a month of blessings. So there's another Hadees to prove that and the best point about the is that whatever we say we have to bring some proof otherwise we have no
right to say anything about any month, about any day about any deed somehow. So Alhamdulillah there is a proof for that as well. That this month is a month of blessing because you know we are we used to have seen these terms a lot with so blessed it's amazing there's so much Baraka, but we need to have a proof in order to say that yes, there is Baraka so in hamdulillah is a proof for Ramadan that it is a month of Baraka so this is look at that. It's not just one Hadees there are others as well. But we are quoting a very comprehensive one from Masada because it covers many things in hamdulillah. For the Hadees goes on and talks about Ramadan. Khadija Akuma Ramadan, Ramadan has come
to you Sha Harun mobarak right here is a proof, a blessed month a Mubarak month. Allah has made obligatory upon you, it's fasting so it's mandatory for you. It's further upon you to fast when in this month. In it, the gates of heaven are open and the gates of hell far are closed and the evil devils are chained.
Allah belongs a night in it, which is better than 1000 months. Which night are we referring to here? Laila to further the Night of Decree, right Alhamdulillah
who whosoever is prevented from it's good that he has been deprived. So whoever doesn't make the most of this Mubarak month, or whoever doesn't make the most of this Mubarak night, last night, then that person is my home that person is deprived, deprived from read, deprived from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. deprived from the benefits, we could have a wailed from the month of Ramadan. So now inshallah, let's see how to make the most of this month of mercy and month of blessings. Before we move on and talk about the checklist part. I just wanted to mention one more point about Mubarak, you know, you must have noticed that whenever someone achieved something in life, and whenever we
want to give someone a doll, it's a habit of Muslims, that we give the door if Baraka isn't it, there will Lockwood Baraka in it or varkala right. So, and also there are, you know, Muslim doors as well like, especially when people are getting married, this is the artery with Baraka, when someone gets a child, there is the owl which starts with the word to do with Baraka. So, what exactly is Baraka? So, Baraka is understood in three ways by the scholars.
So, you can jot down the details if you want. So, Baraka is understood in three ways, and what are those three ways? One is that Baraka is that you don't have enough, but Allah subhanaw taala makes it sufficient, we understand that, right? So we don't have much time, but we're able to do more, we don't have enough. Also panela means that we're able to achieve whatever we wanted to achieve. We don't have enough food, but it is sufficient for everyone. So this is Baraka. Make sense? Alhamdulillah. Alright, so another point about Baraka, which I really, really love, is that, let's say you have enough, you don't need Baraka in it, but you're scared that it can be stashed away.
So, the second understanding of Baraka is protection. So, first is increase, second is protection. So, you have an M a lot, but you don't want it to be taken away. So, you make the offer Baraka so Alhamdulillah we all have this beautiful month of Ramadan with us and upon us So, what should we do make that may Allah enable us to aware from the barrack office this of this month, so that it is not taken away from us and we don't get lazy and we protect our good deeds we keep striving we keep doing the good deeds inshallah. And the third meaning is fulfillment.
Right. So, the first is increased, second is protection and third is fulfillment. So, fulfillment is a feeling good part. So Alhamdulillah Ramadan gives us all three because you know the same 24 hours we get them before Ramadan after Ramadan as well but in Ramadan we are able to do much more candelilla and protection May Allah protect our good deeds mail enable us to do a better job this Ramadan as well and protect our good deeds and protect this month so that we don't lose out and fulfilment Alhamdulillah we feel really happy about this month.
So this is a mobarak month but this Baraka definition can fall under all the Baraka points, you know, are all the burqa we ever talked about inshallah so our today's checklist is to make the most of month of mercy and blessings so let's see what can we do? So do charity daily so there is Baraka help someone daily so there is Baraka greet other people usually the first one reading people so if you haven't really talked to your relatives yet or haven't sent them Ramadan Mubarak yet, so inshallah do that now. Like not now do that today inshallah after class, smile more often be nice and pleasant for the people who are around you at home because you know, people are stuck with you
for many days. You don't want to make it an unpleasant you know,
time for them inshallah so keep smiling keep doing the nice things for each other. also work on self improvement because that will be the Baraka you want to see in yourself after Ramadan and also pray extra Salah lot don't mister are we pray your Novato and also don't miss Salah to Doha and make the offer safety from your own soul. This is very important because this is going to take away Baraka. You know, sometimes we know what's good, but we still don't do it. Sometimes we are able to manage more in less time, but we don't do that. Why? Because of our naps because of our soul because of the laziness.
But because of the love for sleep or maybe love for entertainment so we need to make the our to stay safe from these desires and the beautiful dog which is part of our morning evening routine. And that is yeah here we are by noon, B RAF medical histories asleep Leisha and Nicola whether the kidney era Nazi bar for dying or ever living or self subsisting by your mercy, I seek your help I seek assistance, rectify for me, all of my affairs, and do not leave me to myself, even for the blink of an eye, even for a second, even for a little bit, because then I can easily slip away. It's a very beautiful, why we ensure joining Allah subhanho wa Taala our weakness, you're showing humility, and
we are asking Allah subhanaw taala for help, and we are acknowledging that yes, we are we when we need your help in order to make the most of this month. And of course, this is not just Ramadan, this is by us like a routine to our from Muslim dials every morning once and every evening once inshallah so next time you make this work, think about all of these things we have talked about, what is the reference of this there are and who was taught this, there are two, there's 100 of them, had these to go with it. And another the other one, he said that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said to Fatima rodella, Juana that what will stop you from practicing my advice. And then he gave the
advice more was that you should recite following draw every morning and every evening. So Alhamdulillah this was the art of a father, for his daughter, and amazing father and amazing daughters, and inshallah we gonna learn this da from them handling that. So this is for your ears, if you want to take a screenshot of it, because the font is big, maybe will be easier for you to read from it. And one tip to do with your Ramadan, analyze your energy level every day.
And you know, especially in a day as well, to analyze your energy level today, that at what time you felt really, really energetic, at what time you were spiritually, you know, really good. and at what time you were sort of down, and at what time you're able to do more. And then once you're able to identify all of this, then you can plan out your day. So save energy for the things which require more of your time, and more or more of your effort. So let's say you want to memorize some parts of the Quran, this Ramadan, for that you need a lot of energy because you need your brains, you need to focus you need to concentrate and you need to avoid distractions at the same time. So you need a lot
of energy for that. Also, if you want to ponder over the Quran, you cannot do it when you are low, spiritually low, or you know you're tired, you're not able to focus because you Your body is aching and whatnot. So don't choose a time which is like a nighttime or let's say evening time when you're really tired and rained to start pondering over the Quran because you won't be able to benefit from the Quran that much. You know, when we are tired, we can still do chores, because you know, we don't really need to use a lot of our effort to do chores and unless you're used to doing them, so use time wisely. And for your ibadah especially the latter which requires a lot from you, you should
give your best time of the day for them inshallah, like for thermal Quran you're giving the best time and hamdulillah that's the smartest thing to do at this point and hands on enough. So now we are going to just look at one there are very quick
inshallah it is going to be for all of you. So very short, very easy. Let me just share the slides with all of you. Okay, so this is going to be our 11th to our for today. And that is only forwards. Allah Allah in me indeed I as I asked you, her work for your love. So if we get Allah subhanaw taala Islam, what else do we want? Right? You're all set and hamdulillah so what is the reference of this Hadees This is mentioned internet ultimately. And the Hadees tells us about Rasul Allah that I was in and told us that it was from the eyes of that rule that he set up. Right so it was a draft of the Prophet along in me as a Luca hogberg, Lahore Burma in your handbook. While I'm an old lady, you buy
a new one in her book, and you know, you can tell memorize the whole if you want, but for now, or for today, only these words are enough. Desert Milan Frank is here. Baraka lofi Kumbh Mela, reward you all for your patience, and May Allah reward you all for paying attention. We only accept all our readers and maila lovers and May Allah grant all of us His love subhanak Aloma behind deca eyeshadow en la ilaha illa Anta esta Furukawa Dubois Lake

I said I'm already coming to LA he will Baraka who
are the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, WA Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim from slightly Sabri were silly emri wash Lupita melissani yufka who Kohli Allahumma had the Colby was sadly Sonny was also him at Appleby, Armenia, Bill Amin. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if anyone pursues a path in search of knowledge, then Allah will thereby make easy for him a path to paradise. And he who is made slow by his actions, will not be speeded by his lineage. So we see in this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, that we are given a goal, a reason, a goal as to why we should study sacred knowledge. And as we spend
time with the Quran over here, learning the verses of Allah reflecting over them, our ultimate goal should be to seek agenda it should be to seek the approval of Allah subhana wa Tada. And how is it that the path to Jannah is made easy for the person who seeks knowledge? Because the person who seeks knowledge then finds out and learns and is reminded of different ways through which they can please Allah Subhana thada a lot of times it happens that a person knows what good deeds are, but they don't remember them. And when they keep studying, then they're reminded of those deeds. Sometimes what happens is that a person does not know. And so when they learn, they get to know of
different ways to please Allah subhanaw taala so our intention every day, as we sit together, and we review the Quran, we reflect over its versus our ultimate goal should be to seek the pleasure of Allah so that we can be in his Jana in sha Allah, amin
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Jews number seven
what either semi Roma on Zilla illa wosu Tara Are you know whom to field Amina dummer mimma Allah for mineral help your co lunala burner Amana for October now Mara Shahid in and when they hear what has been revealed to the messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they have recognized of the truth. They say Our Lord we have believed so register us among the witnesses. Crying upon listening to the Quran is the way of the righteous servants. The people of knowledge, have fear of Allah in their hearts. And out of that fear. They cry when they hear the words of Allah. When they hear his column. They cry, but they don't faint. They beg, they don't yell. They
weep. They don't become miserable. Their response is, as Allah subhanaw taala has described in the Quran, that Allah who knows Zilla Arsenal Hadees Kitab Amata shabbiha masani The kosher elumen who julu de la Vina Shona boham so mottolino julu, whom were kulu boom, Isla Vickery Allah, that Allah has sent down the best statement. It consists
Book wherein is reiteration. This skins shiver there from of those who fear their Lord, then their skins and their hearts relax at the remembrance of Allah. The fact is that if a person lends an ear, if a person listens to the words of Allah without any bias, and they bring to mind the fact that the Quran is Allah's speech, so they surrender before it, they don't resist before its words, they become honest with it, they reflect upon themselves, then the Quran will certainly hit the core, it will certainly have an impact on the heart and when the heart is moved, then tears flow from the eyes, it will claim rahula said that there are three types of people. One is a person whose heart is
dead, and such a person even if he hears the Quran, the Quran is not a reminder for him. Second is the person whose heart is alive and alert. But he does not listen attentively to the Quran. Why? Because either the verses have not reached him, or because they reached him at a time when his heart was distracted, it was preoccupied with something else. So even though he has an alive heart, even though he is capable of taking the effect of the Quran, the Quran did not move him at that time, why, because of his own negligence. And third is a person whose heart is alive and alert, and he is ready and willing to receive admonition from the Quran. So, when the Verses are recited to him, he
listens with an alert heart and preoccupies his heart with only trying to understand what he is listening to, and he does not pay attention to anything else. So because his heart is present, and he is also listening attentively, then such people benefit from the verses which are recited. Such people benefit from the Quran, their heart moves, they are literally moved to tears. And remember, the person who cries from the fear of Allah than such a person is truly fortunate. This idea was actually revealed regarding the joshy, the king of Abyssinia and when he heard the recitation of pseudo medium from jaar foto de la hora and who Naja she was moved to tears. Our problem is that we
try a lot to suppress our tears, we hold them back. In fact, we feel embarrassed if we are seeing crying. And people also shame those who cry. But crying is an expression of the softness of the heart, not its weakness. It is a sign of humility, not frailty. Now the problem is that perhaps we associate crying with weakness because mostly people cry, not out of the remembrance of Allah. But because of the remembrance of people. We cry sometimes, but not out of shame over sin. But when someone hurts our ego, our crying should be out of the fear of Allah subhanaw taala because the person who cries out of the fear of Allah than they're truly fortunate, the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam said that there are three whose eyes will not even see the fire on the Day of Judgment. And one of them is a person who cries out of the fear of Allah. Are you known Beckett's min Hershey Attila? So our tears should flow in the remembrance of Allah in all of him. Allah subhanaw taala is praising those who cry when they hear the Quran. And then they respond. Yoku Luna robina I'm in fact Tobin, Mr. Ushahidi in, they say Our Lord, we have believed. We believe in what you have sent down. We don't deny it. So register us among the witnesses. Who are these witnesses that they want to be a part of? Even our bus with your loved one who said Mara Mohammedan were oma
to that with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his oma. Why? Because they are ohmmeter Shahada. They are the oma of the witnesses. How because in order to be part of this oma one has to bear witness one has to testify to what to the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala. A person has to say, as hairdo Allah ilaha illa Allah, I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah, a person has to testify to the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam what I shall do
Mohammed Al Rasulullah and then on the Day of Judgment, the Muslim Ummah has to testify against the different nations as Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, Lita, kulu Shahada, Allah nurse, so that you will be witnesses against mankind.
Woman and Allah minoo Billa. They said, and why should we not believe in Allah? And what has come to us of the truth? Well, tomorrow I knew the hill on our buena maral calm is slowly hain and we hope we aspire that our Lord will admit us with the righteous people were into paradise. So we see here that a man creates hope in a person. Because he man when a person believes that Remember, all of their previous sins are forgiven. And when a man when a person believes Yes, a person doesn't become an angel, they don't become perfect, free of sin. No, they do commit sin, they do fall and make mistakes, they realize their sins, but they also have this hope. that yes, even though my sins are
many, but my Lord's mercy and forgiveness is also vast, and I hope for his paradise, I hope that he will make me among the righteous servants for thaba, whom Allah who bml carlu. So Allah rewarded them for what they said. And what is the reward that Allah will give them with gardens and paradise beneath which rivers flow were in they abide eternally. And that is the reward of a more sinning the doers of good. So we see here that there is Jenna because of Bhima kalu. For what they said, there is Jenna for saying good words. Remember, if we're not able to earn reward by giving a lot of money, because we don't have much, or by working with our hands by doing something to benefit people, then
we can still earn reward by saying good words, saying Alhamdulillah just once fills the scales, it is not hard to move our tongue that you know we are such that we like to talk. So it is important that we use this tongue to say good words, the words of remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala words that are kind to people words that are encouraging words that uplift them, because there is reward in saying good things. Remember, the first address that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave when he entered Medina, he said of Shi Salaam were awfully Bill kalaam
he said I'm sure Salaam that oh people spread the Salaam be good in speech, join relations stand in the night when people are sleeping, and you will enter Jannah in peace. So one of the first messages that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave was that people speak good words. And remember, even a single good statement can be a source of your salvation. So don't be stingy. Don't hesitate in saying good things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a slave of Allah May utter a word which pleases Allah. And the slave does not even realize he does not even give it much importance. But because of that, according to one Hadees we learn Allah who will raise him two
degrees of reward. Allah will raise him to degrees off great reward Allah will increase their ranks and another headies we learn that because of that one statement, Allah subhanaw taala records his approval for the servant until the day that the servant meets him. So we see that the increase in ranks in the Hereafter is with good words, and forgiveness and Allah approval is also with good words. So remember, and Kelly matoba yerba to sadaqa that a good word is a charity. It is something rewardable so be eager to say good things. But those who disbelieved and denied our signs, they are the companions of Hellfire, or you who have believed, do not prohibit the good things which Allah
has made lawful to you. Allah is merciful to you. So he has given you good things for your benefit your enjoyment. So do not deprive yourself and do not transgress there should be a balance do not transgress how in the use of what is lawful, meaning use with moderation and do not misuse or waste the good things that Allah has given you? Why? Because in the law hello you hibel Martha Deen Indeed, Allah does not like transgressors. So remember
Good things are permissible for the believers, and we're not allowed to make them unlawful for ourselves in the name of piety. Typically, we see that in various religions, people think that prohibiting good things, abstaining from the good things in life is basically piety. So here we learn that good things should not be made unlawful. Obviously, they should be enjoyed within proper bounds. But a person should not make what is lawful into unlawful. And we see that in a Hadees, we learned that some people prohibited certain good things in the name of piety, where for example, one person said that he was always going too fast, another set that he was not going to marry. And the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam greatly disapproved of this. So remember, our Deen is very balanced, it is very moderate. It is realistic and practical. There are boundaries so that we don't, we don't become a slave to our desires. And yet at the same time, there are freedoms so that we don't end up harming ourselves and we enjoy what is lawful, without any shame and guilt, and each of what Allah has provided for you, and what is that which is lawful and good, and fear Allah in whom you are believers, so he man necessitates that you fear Allah your Lord. Allah will not impose blame upon you for what is meaningless in your oats, but he will impose blame upon you for breaking what
you intended of oats. So it's expiation is the feeding of 10 needy people from the average of what you feed your own families or clothing them or the freeing of a slave, but whoever cannot find that, then a fast of three days is required. That is the expiation for olts when you have sworn, but guard your oaths, Thus does Allah make clear to you his verses, that you may be grateful,
you see, every person, they develop certain words, certain habits, in their speech, that they say many things unintentionally, they say them out of habit. So, it is made clear over here, that if a person takes oaths without intention, but out of habit, such as some people, they have the habit of saying, well law, he will law he on every little thing, then such oaths which are not intended, they don't count, they are pardoned, but when a person intends to take an oath, then they are answerable for it. And this means that when a person intentionally makes an oath, then they must fulfill it. And when a person is not able to fulfill that, then they have to give a kafala they have to give an
explanation, which is mentioned over here. But remember, taking a false oath, meaning a person knowingly lies and to support that lie, they take an oath, then this is a major sin. We learn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever takes a false oath Cathy burn while lying or with the army then deliberately finally at about what beware g MacArthur whom in and then he should make his place his seat in the fire meeting, his space is going to fall in the fire. So this is something that will cause people to enter hell.
We learn in the holidays, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that one should not take a false oath at this pulpit of mine, even on a green to stick on a green miswak meaning do not take false oaths for something petty for something that is very little, why because then he will make his abode in hell or hell will be certain for him. So we must be careful about what we say. Yeah, uh you Halina amanu in normal humble well may serial well ensemble, well as lamb will read you soon. All you will have believed indeed, intoxicants gambling, sacrificing on stone altars and divining arrows are but defilements minimalis shaitan from the work of shaitan so what should you do fudge any boo
hoo. So avoid it, stay away from these demonic things, like unlock them to free home so that you may be successful. And this means that if you do not stay away from them, then you cannot be successful. So for success, it is incumbent to leave all of these deeds, all of these satanic things. offering sacrifices to idols is mentioned in the same list as intoxicants and gambling. Remember that just as the worship of idols has no place in Islam, intoxicants and gambling are also not permissible. They are haraam we learned in heaven
These that Verily, Allah, the Exalted has forbidden intoxicants. Allah has exalt Allah, the Exalted has forbidden Hummer wine. So who hears this verse? And he has anything of it with him, he should neither drink it nor sell it. So what did the companions do? We learned that the people brought whatever they had of wine in their homes, into the streets, and they spilt it all. They didn't sell it. They didn't finish it quickly. And remember, that even if a large quantity of something intoxicates then a little bit of that substance is also unlawful. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Keep away from Hummer from wine. Why? Because it is the key to every evil. We learn
another Hadees that a man leaves a person at the time when they drink wine. Well, I yes, Rob will hombre Hina shabu Hawa, who mean? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that gibreel came to me and said that Allah has cursed wine.
Allah has cursed the person who presses it, for whom it is pressed, the person who drinks it, the person who carries it, the one whom it is carried to the one who buys it, the one who sells it, the one who serves it, and those who have it served. I don't know if it can be any clearer than this. It is very clear from the Quran and Sunnah that alcohol, wine, intoxicants, these are forbidden. And along with that gambling is also prohibited. Why? Because you see both of them are addictive. They damage a person's Deen and a person's dunia. They damage a person spiritually, physically and emotionally. And also in their relationships. They also damage a person's dignity. In a Hadees we
learn that if anyone says to his friend, come and I will gamble with you. Meaning if a person just invites a friend to a game of gambling, then he must repent from it and how should he repent from it? He should give sadaqa he should give charity as a compensation for the invitation to gamble.
shaitan only wants to cause but between you animosity and hatred through intoxicants and gambling and to avert you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer. So will you not desist? Why has Allah forbidden intoxicants and gambling? Is it to deprive people to not let them have fun? No, because through intoxicants and gambling shaytaan causes strife between people. You see, when intoxicated, people say and do things that are very damaging. Through games of chance, a person can lose their hard earned money very quickly, or make money very quickly. And this can damage the relationship between the players. This can damage the relationship between the people who are
gambling and their families. And then we see that gambling is something that leads to many crimes, being in a state of intoxicated. Being intoxicated also can cause the person to commit many crimes. And we see that there's theft, there's cheating, and there's even murder. And they're both a waste of money and time. Gambling is evil. It makes a person rely on chance on luck on wishful thinking instead of working hard, and a person turns towards intoxicants and gambling in order to relax themselves, but they actually end up increasing in their stress levels, which causes them to spend even more time gambling and getting drugged. So a person gets caught up in a vicious cycle that
becomes very, very difficult to escape. And remember that both intoxicants and gambling can actually lead to addictive disorders, they can impact a person's physiology and their psychology. And most importantly, both of these are a trick of shaytaan to turn people away from remembering Allah and from Salah. Because when a person becomes dependent on a substance, and all they can think of is the next game that they can play the next game of gambling that they can play, then this obsession, this dependency will not allow them to focus on their obligations. They won't know what they're saying in sauna and instead of remembering Allah, their mind will always be preoccupied with these things. So
Allah asks us for help and to monta Hoon, so will you desist? Will you leave these things already, and obey Allah and obey the messenger and beware, and if you turn away, then know that upon our messenger is only the responsibility for clear notification.
Les Sarla levena amanu while I'm in LA slowly healthy, Juna one, there is not upon those who believe and do righteousness.
Any blame concerning what they have consumed? Meaning if they consumed any intoxicants in the past or anything of haram foods that they ate in the past, then there is no sin upon them. When if they now fear Allah, meaning once they come to know of the prohibition, then they avoid these things that Allah Subhana Allah has forbidden and this is the Oba that yes, you made mistakes out of ignorance in the past, but now that you know, then you should leave and believe and do righteous deeds and then fear Allah and believe and then fear Allah and do good will Lahu your Hepburn mercy Nene. And Allah loves the doers of good. So we see that the taqwa of Allah is extremely important in order to
stay away from such things. You see the companions, they wondered about those who had passed away before the prohibition of alcohol and gambling, that what about them or this info for what they consumed. So it is made clear here that there is no sin before prohibition. And what needs to be done is that now that you know, you leave it, and this verse shows us that the taqwa of Allah is needed, even in matters related to food, and one can only reach the level of ASN when they when they fear Allah regarding what they eat, what they consume. And we also learn from this idea that the level of taqwa with your son is better than it is above the level of taqwa with a man because it is
said so matakohe Amano. So, matakohe Sano, first is the core with a man then is the core with Exxon and then it is mentioned Willa, who you have Woolworths in in? You see, one is to fear Allah and refrain from sin. But a higher level is that with the fear of Allah, a person is also a moisten, meaning they worship Allah as though they can see him. And they're not just refraining from sin, now, they're doing good with excellence. So they're not content with the bare minimum, that okay, at least I'm not doing harm. No, they do ersan so they do more, they do better. And taco can be just in personal matters, but when a person practices sn, then they bring benefit to themselves, and also to
those who are around them. And what about intoxicants and gambling, they make a person extremely selfish. And Allah subhanaw taala likes those who do Hassan who are good to others who are not greedy, who are not blind in the pursuit of their desires, but those who are generous those who remember their Lord. Yeah, uh, you Halina amanu. All you who have believed, Allah will surely test you through something of the game that your hands and spears can reach. Game meaning hunt, meaning animals that are hunted. So sometimes, unlawful things can be very easily accessible to a person.
And these situations are in reality, a test. So when you leave an opportunity to sin, out of the fear of Allah, then you have passed the test. And we see that these days, online gambling can be so accessible, easy money can be so tempting. So remember, getting an opportunity to sin is actually a test. So this verse, it was revealed regarding sort of how they BIA that when the Muslims were in a state of Islam, and remember when you're in a state of Islam, this is a state in which certain things are not permissible, and of them is hunting. So in the journey, there were animals that they could easily hunt birds that they could literally catch by their hands if they wanted, but they
restrained themselves. And this was indeed very tempting, very difficult, that something is within your reach. And it's an opportunity that doesn't come every day, but you leave it out of the fear of Allah. Why does Allah subhanaw taala test us through such situations that Allah may make evident those who fear him unseen, and whoever transgresses after that for him is a painful punishment. So this is a test of a person's kusha of Allah, their fear of God, because many people will say that yes, I do fear Allah, but the fear of Allah is exhibited, it is truly brought to surface when a person is in a situation like this. You see, there are some places some actions in which you are on
your own. People are not watching you. Only Allah is watching you. When is it that a person can restrain themselves, for example, from watching something that is inappropriate, sometimes on their phone in the palm of their hands in the privacy of their bedroom? The fear of people remember, it cannot always prevent a person from doing wrong.
It can prevent them at certain times, but not always. It is the fear of Allah that ultimately saves a person from doing wrong. Or you have believed, do not kill game, meaning do not hunt, while you are in the state of Iran. And whoever Have you kills it intentionally than the penalty is an equivalent from sacrificial animals to what he killed Subhan Allah, our religion is so realistic, it is not idealistic, meaning it is known that yes, the rules are made clear to people, but people are human, they're prone to error. So even though even though hunting in a state of Iran is not permissible, there will be mistakes. So if a person ends up, so if a person ends up hunting in a
state of Iran, then what there is, is solution a way out, and that is given over here, that whoever have you killed it intentionally, then there is a penalty, and what is that penalty and equivalent from sacrificial animals to what he killed, as judged by to just men among you, meaning to just men will decide the worth of the hunted animal and suggest its equivalent from domesticated animals. And then that animal will be sent as an offering to Allah deliver to the Kaaba, meaning this sacrifice has to be sent to MacAllan or an expiation, the feeding of needy people, or the equivalent of that in fasting, that he may taste the consequence of his deed. And remember that a photo an expiation is
something that erases the sin. So our religion gives us hope, a way out of sin, a way out of mistakes. Allah has pardoned what has passed, but whoever returns to violation, then Allah will take retribution from him. And Allah is Exalted in Might and owner of retribution. Lovell to you is game from the sea, and its food as provision for you and the travelers. So catching sea animals, fishing is something allowed, even in the state of Islam, but forbidden to you is game from the land as long as you are in the state of Islam. Why? Because you can find other foods on land, but on water at sea, you depend on sea life and fear Allah to whom you will be gathered. Allah has made the Kaaba,
the sacred house standing for the people and has sanctified the sacred months and the sacrificial animals and the Garland's that is, so you may know that Allah knows what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, and that Allah is Knowing of all things. Why are there so many restrictions related to Iran, and related to you know, Hajj and Umrah? Why so that we remember that Allah knows us, Allah knows what we are doing it Allah mu, you should know that Allah is severe in penalty. And you should also know that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful, he is should either call and he is a photo Rahim. Notice how Allah has mentioned mercy in his name. So remember that urashima is actually an attribute
of Allah. Allah is Rahim. And Allah has mentioned are that in his action, he is shaadi.com he is severe in giving the punishment. So the giving of punishment is not mentioned in his names. So there is a difference between name and action. And also remember that in both giving our that and eclub in giving punishment, and giving penalty, His mercy prevails, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companions, give me the allegiance, that you will not worship anything besides Allah, you will not steal, you will not commit Zina, and he listed some other sins. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever among you fulfills his pledge, his reward
is with Allah And whoever commits something of such sins and receives the legal punishment for it in this life, that will be considered as the expiation for that sin. So, this is Allah's mercy, that there is called the penalty actually becomes a source of purification. So the penalty is also in fact a mercy. And whoever commits something of such sins and Allah screens him, then it is up to Allah, whether to excuse or punish him, meaning if you want, he can punish this person, and if he wants, he will have mercy to him. So there is a possibility of His mercy and His mercy is expected over there also. So no matter what happens, always have hope in the mercy of Allah, not upon the
messenger, his responsibility, except for notification, meaning the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is simply to convey not force people to accept Allah is the one who gives the ability to accept to people
and the Prophet is only expected to convey and Allah knows, whatever you reveal, and whatever you conceal. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam delivered a sermon on the on the day of Naha. And he said, no doubt, your blood and your properties are sacred to one another, like the sanctity of this day of yours in this month of yours in this town of yours, till the day that you meet your Lord. No doubt. Haven't I conveyed Allah's message to you. And the companion said, Yes, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allahu Mashhad or Allah be a witness, for Luba Lily shahidullah him and then he said, it is incumbent upon those who are present to convey to those
who are absent. So now, after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the obligation to convey is on who it is on us. It is on the oma of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gulyas, the will hobby so whatever you say, not equal are the evil and the good. They're not the same. So what are you going to choose? Are you going to choose the evil or the good, whether this is in your deeds are in your speech, or in what you eat, in the in your clothing, in your income, in your thinking, remember, good and bad are not the same. Although the abundance of evil might impress you, sometimes it happens, that what is wrong becomes very common, it becomes easily available everywhere, and we
forget that wrong is wrong. So fear Allah all you have understanding that you may be successful. Remember, that good things have a good impact in this life and also in the next life and bad things, bad actions, bad words, they have a bad impact in this life and also in the next life. So they can never be the same. One is in Jannah and the other is in jahannam. How can they be the same? So whether it is actions or words or wealth, remember, Allah subhanaw taala likes a YouTube he likes what is good, what he has made permissible. In a hadith we learn in Allah you boon la Yakubu Illa for yerba or people, Allah is good. And He therefore accepts only that which is good. So even when
you want to spend in the way of Allah, you have to spend out of lawful money. Because sometimes people say that yes, we will gamble so that we can win a whole lot of money. We can, you know, participate in that lottery so that when we make a whole lot of money, we can give it in charity. No, Allah accepts only that which is good. And remember good words assent to him. Good actions. Take them up la heels or they'll Kalamata. Yep. Well, Amarillo, Solihull yellow Pharaoh, good words are sent to him and righteous actions. Take those words up and impure wealth. Remember, it does not benefit a person at all. Instead, it is a source of loss and suffering in this world and in the
hereafter. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, Leah means Allah who hobbies I mean, where do your other hobbies Ababa who Allah BB for your Kuma, who Jamia and for your journey, who houfy jahannam. This is so that allowed me to distinguish the wicked from the good, and place the wicked, some of it upon other and heap it all together and put it into hell. So remember that the final destination of Hobbes, of that which is impure, that which is bad is hell, and good will be in Jannah. So remember, by you, even if it is very little.
It actually it is better than Hobbes, even if Hobbes that which is impure is more in quantity, because the YouTube has blessing in it, and Hobbes has a burden in it. When a person does what is good, uses what is good, then that becomes sufficient, and it is better for him. And if a person has a lot of hobbies, and the quantity is great. In fact, it becomes a burden from him. In our heads, we learn what is little and sufficient is better than what is more and distracting. So don't be tempted by the abundance of hobbies Don't be diluted by even the abundance of people who do what is hobbies? Yeah, uh, you have levena amanu. All you who have believed, do not ask about things which if they're
shown to you will distress you. So excessive questioning is something that is disliked. Why? Because this makes religion difficult for people and no one likes to be interrogated all the time. But if you ask about them while the Quran is being revealed, they will
will be shown to you, Allah has pardoned that which has passed and Allah is Forgiving and forbearing. So, remember all the details that we are in need of to practice our religion they have been given. So there is no need to complicate the religion by asking unnecessary excessive questions of people asked such questions before you, then they became thereby disbelievers. Allah has not appointed behavior or set a bar or whistling Allah or ham. These were animals of different ages and different characteristics that the machine would dedicate to their idols. Allah subhanaw taala did not legislate any of this. People innovated this on their own. But those who disbelieve, invent
falsehood about Allah, and most of them do not use reason. And when it is said to them, come to what Allah has revealed, and to the messenger, they say, sufficient for us is that upon which we found our forefathers, so the way of the forefathers, it doesn't have any worse when it contradicts the religion of Allah. When it comes to any religious action, there must be evidence from the Quran, from the Sunnah. But many people continue to practice wrong things simply because it is a family tradition. But these traditions have no words when they contradict the religion of Allah. And such excuses will not be accepted in the hereafter. So it is said, even though their fathers knew
nothing, nor were they guided. So a cause of misguidance, for many people, is the blind following of traditions, and leaving the guidance of Allah because of that. And this is a problem that extends to our cultural practices as well. There are things that we have invented in our cultures, you know, in our cultural practices, and we think that they're a must, no matter how burdensome and how difficult they may be. For example, when it comes to weddings, we have made certain traditions mandatory, that there must be this party and that event, and this kind of dressing and this kind of food, and these kinds of decorations, even though they may be financially, very heavy on people, very burdensome.
And it's amazing how, you know, we plan our weddings, and we, we, we spend so much and we resent it, we resent all the work that we're putting in, and the people who are forced to come to the weddings also and sit through all those hours, they're also resentful of the time that they're wasting, they will complain about the food, they will complain about how, you know, the food was not served on time, that it took way too long, or it was too loud, or it was too boring, so on and so forth. So there's no need to make our lives difficult with such practices. And then on the other hand, we have invented certain prohibitions, you know, we have prohibited certain things and ourselves in the name
of culture, which are clearly permissible in our religion. So for example, in certain cultures, it is almost how long to marry someone outside of their family or outside of their culture. So all of these extremes should be avoided. Yeah, uh, you Halina amanu? Are they la calm and for SATCOM, all you who have believed upon you is responsibility for yourselves, meaning you must worry about yourselves. Those who have gone astray will not harm you, when you have been guided to Allah is your return altogether, then he will inform you of what you use to do. So do not destroy yourself over others, do not worry so much about other people that you end up neglecting and harming yourself.
Some people think that this idea means that Just mind your own business and stop worrying about what others do To each their own. And so there's no need to do a mobile maruf and no one on one call. But this verse is actually indicating that if a person strives their best to tell other people, and still other people don't listen, they persist in their ways, then that is not your responsibility. You are not obligated to compel them, you just inform them and leave them and then you worry about yourself. Some people are too preoccupied about other people. Their concern is, you know, the religiosity of others that Oh, look, so and so now even they have left her job. And now so and so
now, even they're doing this or doing that, okay, okay, this hurts you. This worries you, but your ultimate concern should not be that you're counting the sins of other people. Also count your own sins, because you are always responsible for yourself. When it comes to other people. You can only convey to them you are not responsible for what they do. What you will be held responsible for is what you
all you have believed testimony should be taken among you, when death approaches one of you at the time of bequest that have to just men from among you or to others from outside, if you're traveling through the land, and the disaster of death should strike you. You see, death has been mentioned, as a disaster over here. Why? Because when a person loses their life, then there is no return. If you lose money, if you lose your house, may Allah protect you. But But if you lose anything in this life, even if it's your favorite human being, there is always a substitute. There's always a replacement, but not for life. And even though death is a great disaster, a bigger disaster is that
a person becomes heedless of death, that they don't remember it, that they don't think about it, that they don't prepare for it. They don't work for it. And this shows us the importance of remembering our death and being prepared for it. And part of being prepared for our death is to make it we'll see you and remember, we'll see you is a will, that you can make in the favor of a non heir of up to a third of your wealth. And even with regards to your other wealth, there should be clarity, that what is it that you own? What are your assets, so that there is no confusion, after you pass away, there is no argument among your heirs. So make these matters very clear.
detain them after the prayer, and let them both swear by Allah, if you doubt their testimony, saying, We will not exchange our old for a price, even if he should be a near relative, and we will not withhold the testimony of Allah. Indeed, we would then be of the sinful. So here, sudden death is mentioned that when a person is traveling, and is near death, that he should make a will regarding his property, and his dependents at that time, and those present with him should convey that should convey that will to his heirs. And if the heirs have a reason to doubt those people, then they should call them to testify. But if it is found that those who are guilty of perjury let
two others stand in their place who are foremost unclaimed from those who have a lawful right and let them swear by Allah. Our testimony is truer than their testimony and we have not transgressed Indeed, we would then be of the of the wrongdoers that is more likely that they will give testimony according to its true objective, or at least they would fear that other at that, that other Olds might be taken after their olts what duckula who was smart who and fear Allah And listen, listen with the core, learn, pay attention and obey because hearing alone is not enough. And Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people. So we see here that if a person does not listen, and
listening does not just mean listening with the ears, listening means obeying, following. So if a person does not follow these commands, they don't fear Allah regarding these commands, then they would be of the facet pain and Allah does not guide the facet pain those who defiantly disobey, meaning such people are not led to good actions two good ways or two the path of paradise. yo maya jamala hood will still be warned of the day when Allah who will assemble the messengers via kulu mother ojibwa to Him and He will say what was the response you received? Our Lula ilma Lana? They will say we have no knowledge in NACA Antara alemu Indeed, it is you who is Knower of the unseen
This is not literal that you know the, that the prophets of Allah will deny having any knowledge. Of course, they they do know, but they will say this out of the fear of Allah, that such fear will overcome them, that they will forget what they witnessed, they will forget what they experienced firsthand why, because of the horrors of the Day of Judgment. And finally, when their fear will subside, then they will be a witness against or for their nations. And this is something that should really make us think about ourselves. Sometimes people come up with such strange, you know, explanations they will say things like, oh, when Allah will ask me about Salah, I will say this and
this, I will give such and such excuse that how come this and how come that if the prophets will be terrified to speak on the Day of Judgment, you think you and I will be able to speak in Kala who your Isa that day when Allah Jose, or Isa son of Miriam, remember my favor upon you and upon your mother when I supported you with the pure spirit gibreel and you
To the people in the cradle, and in maturity. And remember when I taught you writing and wisdom and the total art and the Injeel. And when you designed from clay, what was like the form of a bird with my permission, then you breathed into it, and it became a bird with my permission, and you healed the blind and the leper with my permission. And when you brought forth the dead with my permission, and when I restrained the children of Israel from killing you, when you came to them with clear proofs, and those who disbelieved among them said, this is not but obvious magic. You show the miracles, and they call those miracles magic. So basically, we see in this verse, that rubia, is
being negated from research to his center, that Esaias center is not rob, he is not Lord, He is not God, rather, he is a human, a prophet is slave. Why? Because he said, that I did. I do all of this with the permission of Allah. You see how it is mentioned, that after every miracle that you did this with my permission, meaning with the permission of Allah, and this is something that we should also remember that everything happens by the permission of Allah, because sometimes we develop this fear of people, or fear of, you know, certain things, or we, you know, we develop expectations of people, we should place all of our fears and expectations in Allah alone. Why? Because the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Remember, if all the people gather to benefit you, they will not be able to benefit you except that which Allah has already decreed for you. And if all of them gather to harm you, they will not be able to harm you with anything except with that which Allah has already decreed for you. So the real power is with Allah. What if Oh, hey to Al Howard again. And remember, when I inspired to the disciples, what believed in me, and in my messenger, Isa, they said, We have believed so bear witness that indeed, we are among Muslims. Allah inspired them to believe and to support SRT has said I'm also and remember when the disciples said, Orisa, son of
Maria, can your Lord send down to us a table spread with food from the sky? He said, he said, I'm sad, Fear Allah, if you should be believers. They said, We wish to eat from it. And let our hearts be reassured and know that you have been truthful to us and be among its witnesses reciting this and I'm sure so many miracles of such variety, yet they wanted another miracle, one more miracle. Restart. He said, I'm said, he started he said, I'm the son of money. I'm said, Oh Allah, our Lord, sent down to us a table spread with food from the sky, to be for us, a festival for the first of us and The Last of Us and aside from you, and provide us and you are the best of providers, how
affectionate the prophets of Allah were beside his son Madara to Allah to fulfill the miracle that the hawala Yun asked for. And we see that he made Dora and he said, What is Zuko? Now? We're under higher adversity. We should also ask Allah for risk because he is the provider. And if we have any financial constraint, or worry that we should ask Allah even more, what zakenna were untitled recipient, especially these days, a lot of people are afraid about their income about their jobs. A lot of people have lost their jobs. A lot of people are worried about their businesses. They don't know how they're going to be, you know, paying for their rent, or paying for different things. So
ask Allah wa Zuko now, we're under higher velocity. Remember, the keys of all provision are with Allah, not with the creation, and our effort alone is not enough. We have to work to get the risk. But we also have to ask Allah for the risk. Allah said, Indeed, I will send it down to you. But whoever disbelieves afterwards from among you, then indeed will I punish him with a punishment by which I have not punished anyone among the worlds when the truth is clear. It has become evident, then it is a must let people surrender to Allah. And Beware the day when Allah will say, or Isa, son of Miriam, did you say to the people, that take me and my mother, as de tes besides Allah? Did you
tell them to worship you? Call a super hanoch he will say Exalted are You? It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. He started his son and will begin his answer by saying subhanak he will glorify Allah first. Because this is a place of expressing humility before Allah. Remember, Subhana Allah is said, to declare Allah's perfection. The fact that Allah is above any imperfection that could be ascribed to him. So out of fear of Allah's might, out of fear of Allah.
was rough, he will say sober Hannah. And sapan. Allah is also said, to declare one's own innocence. So recently said, I will say, subhanak, you are free of any partner, I am afraid of your might. And I also declare my innocence before you, he will say Exalted are You it was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, you would have known it, you know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within yourself. And this also makes it very clear that Assad is said and did not possess any divine attributes. Indeed, it is you who is a Knower of the unseen and we see over here how he started his salon shows so much respect before Allah, He says inaka into Allah will
who YouTube and this is something that we should also remember, whenever we talk about Allah, when we talk to Allah, when we make da we should also mean we should always maintain respect, we should always exhibit other any Who are we? And who is Allah Heaney? We we are His creation. We have no right to speak in a disrespectful way about Allah subhanaw taala or to Allah subhanaw taala ma kotula home Illa Allah Mr. Attorney Bay, I said not to them, except what you commanded me to worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord, and I was a witness over them as long as I was among them, but when you took me up, you were the observer over them and you are over all things. witness. So remember,
Allah is a witness over everything. We're under Allah cliche in Shaheed and Fela Mata were fatally contact under raqib Allah him Allah is Allah. Allah is Shaheed Allah Himself is a witness, and he is also appointed angels over the creation to witness and observe the, the the deeds of people. So no matter where we are, no matter what time it is, remember will can Allahu Allahu Alicia era peba Allah is over all things. over all things are paved, he is an observer. Allah is got a mana Allah coolin fcmb, maca Sabbath, Allah is maintainer of every soul, knowing what it has earned, we learned that the angels you know, they say to Allah, when a person commits when a person intends to commit a
sin, they say that Oh Allah, the servant of yours has intended to commit a sin. And Allah subhanaw taala says, or kubu who watch him, if he commits it, then write it against him. But if he refrains from it, then write one good deed in its place, because he left it because of me, he left it for my sake. So remember, Allah is that a peep over us, and he has appointed angels over us also, bizarrely, has said I will say, into our labor home for in Hungary badak if you should punish them, indeed they are Your servants were in tow Villa home, but if you forgive them, for in naka antilla, Aziz will hacking him, then indeed, it is you who is the Exalted in Might the wise, notice, he will
not say over here, that you are allowed to fold over him that you are Forgiving and Merciful, but that you are allowed, Aziz will Hakeem. And this also is out of extreme Adam, extreme respect for Allah subhanaw taala. Because when Allah will be angry at that time, this is not the place for intercession. And remember, this is a place of Bogota, this is a place of dissociating oneself from those who committed such heinous crimes. And it also means that Oh Allah, if you forgive them, then that would be from your might and knowledge, not because you are unable to take revenge, or because you are unaware of their crimes. You are allowed. Aziz, you are a Hakeem. In a hadith we learn that
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited a verse of the Quran, and then he recited this verse, and then he raised his hands up, and he said, Allahu Allah Almighty, Almighty, or Allah, my alma, my oma and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wept, and he wept so much, that Allah subhanaw taala centered you but even to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you go and ask him, what is it that makes you cry? So gibreel said, so debri went and asked the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even though Allah subhanaw taala already knew, so deep so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed him that I that I'm concerned about my oma and Allah subhanaw
taala said, Oh, jabril go to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and say that Verily, We will please you with regard to your oma and you will not be displeased. May Allah subhanaw taala make us such people who will be a source of pride for our Prophet, call Allah who had a young million followers
sluggy Tennessee the ko home, Allah who will say this is the day when the truthful will benefit from their truthfulness. It is truthfulness that will benefit a person on the Day of Judgment. For them our gardens in paradise beneath which rivers flow were in, they will abide forever. Allah being pleased with them and they with him, all the Allah who are on home world, Warren Valley, Cal fosun, Alain, that is the great attainment. Remember, if you want Allah to be pleased with you, then you'll be pleased with Allah. You'll be pleased with Allah's decrees, his decisions, whatever that he has decided for your life, for your health, for your wealth for your well being the different ways that
he has tested you the different obligations that he has laid upon you be pleased with Allah, so that Allah who will be pleased with you. And this verse makes it very clear that honesty, truthfulness is something that leads to paradise. kumbhakarna Rasulullah sallallahu he was settled on that in the silica Yeah, de la belle were in Erbil yati era Jana, that indeed, truthfulness leads to piety and piety leads to Jenna. So we should pray to Allah. Luca colourbond salema and will he sign on Sadiq Khan, the role I asked you for a heart that is sound and a tongue that is truthful to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and whatever is within them, and he is over all things
competent. So this was pseudotumor either. Now surah, two amraam Surah Al anon is a murky surah so it will be very different from the soonest that we have read so far. And it was revealed in one instance. In some narrations, we learned that 70,000 angels were present at the time of its revelation. And in the surah the false beliefs and and arguments of the polytheists are refuted. Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Alhamdulillah he levy Hello customer worth he will watch Allah Lulu Matthew one new. So Medina Kufa Ruby, Ruby him era de Lune All praise is due to Allah who created the heavens and the earth, and he made the darkness and the night and the light. Then those who
disbelieve equate others with their Lord Alhamdulillah. Remember, hand is Allah's right? He deserves that his slaves praise Him because He is perfect, He is worthy of praise. He deserves that his slaves praise him with love with adoration with reverence with gratitude, because He alone is the Bestower of blessings. A man from the tribe of boo Jame related that he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Messenger of Allah, what do you invite people to? And he replied, I invite to Allah alone, he who when some calamity strikes you, you call upon him, and he removes it from you. When you are in the wilderness and lose your way you call upon him, and he delivers you, he rescues
you, when you are struck by famine and call upon him he causes vegetation to grow. So Alhamdulillah five surahs of the Quran, begin with Alhamdulillah why because we are being taught to praise Allah, because Allah is worthy of praise forever. And for always Alhamdulillah does not mean that I praise Allah. now in this moment, rather it means All praise is for Allah. Because no matter what era it is, what period of time it is, what place and what situation it is, Allah is always worthy of praise. He is worthy of praise for what he decreed before what he created in the past, for what he is decreeing. Now, what he has created right now, and for what he will bring about in the future.
And remember, and hamdulillah This means that we should praise Allah, for what we experienced in our childhood. What we got last year, what we got yesterday, and Alhamdulillah for today.

Alhamdulillah means All praise is only for Allah because there is no one like him. He is perfect in his being he is perfect in his qualities.

And in this idea it is mentioned and hamdulillah he lady Hanukkah summer what he will have what jar love lumati When Lord and hamdulillah that he
created the skies and the earth, one so high and the other solo. They didn't exist, he brought them into being you and I didn't exist he brought us into being. So All praise is for Allah and Alhamdulillah that he created darkness and light. Because if there was no darkness, how would the light be known? The necessity, the warmth, the comfort that light brings, it is evident yet so melodien aka Federal Bureau Bohemia de Lune. There are people who worship others with Allah. So all people do not associate any with your worship, when He alone is the one who made you when all favors are from him, then worship should also be for him. The people of Makkah believed in the fact that
Allah alone was the creator. They believed in Allah Zahra will be here in his lordship, but they dedicated worship to other than Allah. They did shake in Oulu, here in worship. And this is what is being criticized over here, that when Allah alone is the creator, He alone is perfect, and He alone is worthy of all praise, then why worship others along with him, it is He Who created you from clay, and then decreed a term and a specified time known to him, then still you are in dispute. And He is Allah, the only deity in the heavens and the earth, He knows your secret, and what you make public and he knows that which you earn, all your deeds, good and bad are known to him. And no sign comes
to them from the signs of their Lord, except that they turn away they're from remember more Elaine errorlog is to turn away from reflection and contemplation and reflection on both the revealed signs, which are the verses and the created signs, meaning the creation that is around us, reflection on both of them is a must, it is an obligation on us. For they had denied the truth when it came to them, but there is going to reach them the news of what they use to ridicule when a person fails to reflect, to learn from the signs that Allah subhana wa tada has put all around us. And this is something that leads a person to rejection, to refusal to denial, have not seen how many
generations we destroyed before them, which we had established upon the earth as we have not established to you, meaning the people before you were way better than you. And we sent rain from the sky upon them in showers and made rivers flow beneath them, then we destroyed them for their sins and brought forth after them a generation of others. It's very clear here that sins cause blessings to decline. Allah subhanaw taala gave them blessings, many blessings abundantly, but they responded with rejection. They responded within gratitude. So they were destroyed because of their sins. Allah was not unjust to them. They were unjust to themselves. And so they were finished, they
were replaced by others. It was their own sins that brought about their decline. So this is why we should not be little, any sin. Rather, we should keep on repenting. We should keep on making Toba to Allah and seek His forgiveness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, beware of the sins that are belittled, because they accumulate upon a person until they destroy him. And even if we have sent down to you, oh, Prophet, a written scripture on a page, and they touched it with their hands. The disbelievers would say, this is not but obvious magic. And they say why was there not send down to him an angel, but if we had sent down an angel, the matter would have been decided
beating then there would be no test, then there would not be reprieved. And if we had made him an angel, we would have made him appear as a man. Because how are human beings supposed to learn from an angel see an angel and we would have covered them with that in which they cover themselves, their problem would still not be solved. And already we're messengers ridiculed before you but those who marked them were enveloped by that which they use to mock. So if a person is ridiculed for who they are, if a person is ridiculed for their Salah for their Clean Language for their clean habits for their halaal income, their their recitation of the Quran, they're leaving of sin. And you know what,
don't be sad. If people make fun of you for something good that you do. Don't be sad. And sometimes, this mockery, it comes from those who are closest to you. You open up the Quran to recite, and people start making fun of you people in your own home. Start making fun of you, you're making doll and then people start making fun of you. So yes, this is hurtful. But do not let the mockery of people stop you from doing good
goalsi refill of say travelled through the land, then observe how was the end of the deniers say to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth, say to Allah, he has decreed upon himself mercy cutterbar Allah enough See, he'll Rajma He will surely assemble you for the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt those who will lose themselves that day do not believe. Meaning, no matter what proofs are brought to them, they will not believe we see in this idea that Allah subhanaw taala has made mercy a law for himself cut about a bukem cutterbar Allah nfcu Rama, the Prophet sallallahu Ernest and I'm also told us this, that your Lord wrote for himself with his
own hand before he created the creation. What that Raj Mati Saba hobby that my mercy overcomes my wrath, meaning Allah's mercy is always greater than his wrath. So ask Allah for his mercy Allahumma fiddley were how many were our Fini, where Vinny was zucchini that Oh Allah, forgive me, have mercy on me, pardon me, guide me and provide me ask Him for His mercy, so that his mercy is perpetually on you in this life, and in the next life. And To Him belongs that which reposes by night and by day, and he is the hearing the knowing, say, is it other than Allah, I should take as a protector, Creator of the heavens and the earth, while it is he who feeds and is not fed? Say, indeed, I have
been commanded to be the first among you who submit to Allah, and I was commanded, do not ever be of the polytheists say, indeed, I fear Allah. If I say, indeed, I fear if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is told to say this, that if I disobey my Lord, I am afraid of punishment. What about us? Do we fear Allah, when we disobey Him, we should also have the sphere because he from whom it is averted, that day, Allah has granted him mercy, and that is the clear attainment, whoever is saved from the punishment of the Day of Judgment, then such a person has truly received the mercy of Allah and such a person has become
successful. What am seska Allah who be looted in Fela Kashif Allahu Allahu, and if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him. And if he touches you with good, then he is over all things competent. So if he alone can remove the harm, he alone can give good than ask him, realize that if the affliction is from him, then its removal will also be from him. So the intelligent person, the wise person, when they are afflicted by some difficulty, they realize that it came by Allah's permission, so they turn to Allah, not away from Allah. They remember Allah, they don't forget Allah, they thank Allah and they become even more humble before Allah. This is why
after Salah we should say la ilaha illa Allah hula hula shery Kala lagoon Kula who will hand wahoo Allah coalition in kadhi Allah whom Allah many idema are played or Allah, no one can withhold what you give what are more clearly Mammon Earth and no one can give what you withhold What are yen further journeymen cultured, and the riches of a rich person cannot avail him against you?
Will who will call hero folk or a body and he is the subject Gator over his servants HIS WILL prevails? Well, who will hacky will hobby and he is the wise be acquainted with all say one thing is greatest in testimony say Allah is witnessed between me and you. And this Quran was revealed to me so that I may warn you thereby and whoever it reaches, so remember the Quran is for all it is a message for all whom it reaches? Do you truly testify that with Allah, there are other deities say, I will not testify with you say, indeed he is but one God and indeed, I am free of what you associate with him. those to whom we have given the Scripture recognize it, as they recognize their
own sons. Those who will lose themselves in the hereafter do not believe meaning even though they recognize the truth of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam The truth of the Quran just as well as a person recognizes their own child.
Still, these people pretend like they don't know. They pretend like they don't recognize. So pretending like the truth doesn't exist only is a form of bringing loss upon oneself. And who is more
And just then one who invents about Allah a lie or denies his verses, indeed the wrongdoers will not succeed and mentioned the day we will gather them all together, then we will say to those who are associated others with Allah, where are your partners that you use to claim with him, then there will be no excuse upon examination except that they will say, by Allah, our Lord, we were not those who are associated, they will outright deny their crimes, see how they will lie about themselves. And last from them will be what they used to invent women whom is the Mirror Lake, and among them are those who listened to you, being listened to you when you recite the Quran, but they don't
listen to seek guidance. We have placed over their hearts coverings lest they understand it, and in their ears, deafness, and if they should see every sign, they will not believe in it, even when they come to you arguing with you.
Those who disbelieve say, this is not but legends of the former people's. The Quran does not impact their heart. Why? Because their hearts are veiled. It's the same book. Some people when they hear the Quran, their hearts melt, their lives are completely transformed. And there's some other people who remain stubborn as ever. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for tofik that Oh Allah, allow me to benefit from the Quran. That Oh Allah. Let the Quran be a guide for me, softened my heart through this Quran transformed my life through this Quran. And to benefit from the Quran, it is necessary that we keep our hearts clean. And how is that done? By is too far. Because a sinful heart is too
full. It is too filthy to understand the meanings of the Quran. Sins prevent a person from understanding the Quran. Because remember, sins received the heart, Allah. Allah says in the Quran Kela Bell, Ronna Allah, aka Ruby Hema can we xe boon, what they have earned, meaning their sins, they have covered their hearts with rust. So instead of benefiting them, when a person listens to the Quran, they begin to object they begin to criticize. So if ever, we are not able to understand something in the Quran, then we need to seek forgiveness from Allah, because it is quite possible that this is a result of our own sins, that the verse is not sinking in. Even taymiyah, he would
refer to 100 of our seed at times, to try to understand the meaning of a verse. And if he still did not understand he would do is too far, he would seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. So we should also seek forgiveness from Allah, and seeking forgiveness from Allah is basically seeking the solution, not dwelling on the problem. Well, humean honer on Hawaiian owner on and they prevent others from him, and are themselves remote from him. And they do not destroy except themselves, but they perceive it not. If you could see if you could but see when they're made to stand before the fire, and will say, oh, would that we could, or would that we could be returned to life on Earth,
and not deny the science of our Lord and be among the believers. Just one more chance, please. But what they concealed before has now appeared to them. They're hidden since they're corrupt, evil intentions, which they tried so hard to cover in the worldly life, all of them will become manifest on the Day of Judgment.
And even if they were returned, they would return to that which they were forbidden. And indeed, they're liars. The fact is that in this life, Allah subhanaw taala gives many opportunities, multiple opportunities to every person, so that a person can recognize their mistakes, and make and repent from them seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. So if a person says on the day of judgment that I want one more chance, the fact is that they are lying, because Allah subhanaw taala already gave them many more chances. And they say, there is none but our worldly life, and we will not be resurrected. So among the pre Islamic Arabs, there were also people who denied the hereafter.
They denied resurrection completely, if you could But see, when they will be made to stand before their Lord, He will say is this not the truth? They will say yes, by our Lord. He will then say, so taste the punishment because you're used to disbelieve, again, denying a reality. pretending like a truth does not exist does not make that truth go away, or the hasura larina kozub will be called Illa. Those will have lost who denied the meeting with Allah, those who deny that there is no hisab no account, then such people will truly suffer until when the hour of
resurrection comes upon them unexpectedly, they will say, oh, how great is our regret over what we neglected concerning it, while they bear their burdens on their backs unquestionably evil is that which they bear? So remember, on the day of judgment, Alice puntata, will ask people, that also and so, did I not honor you? Did I not make you the chief of your people and provide you a spouse and subdue for you, horses and camels and afforded you an opportunity to rule over your subjects? And the person will say, yes, Oh Allah, you indeed gave me all of this. And then it will be said, Did you not think that you will meet us? And that person will say no, so it will be said, Well, we
forget you, as you forgot us, woman hyah to dunya Illa, Allah, Allah. So we should remember Allah, do not forget the hereafter over this dunya Why? Because what is the reality of this dunya and the worldly life is not but amusement and diversion. But the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah. So will you not reason what is worldly life it is described as lerab and low. Remember, the Hereafter is for the Moodle clean. And the reality of this world has been described over here. It's reality compared to the hereafter.
That worldly life is just Larry, Larry is play the buisiness of the limbs. And Lao is amusement, the buisiness of the heart. Live is related to what the limbs do, meaning a person's activities, their work, the kind of actions that they do. And Lao is related to the heart, the interests of a person, it cetera. lerab is the physical engagement which serves no outcome. Meaning it's the actions the work that a person does, which brings no real benefit. And level is what keeps a person entertained and amused in the heart. So when a person is focused on the Hereafter, only then can their heart to be free of this low, worldly occupation. Remember, worldly occupation, the kind of things that we do
in worldly life, no matter how important it seems, in fact, it is largely because no matter what you do for the dunya, its outcome is that it will ultimately finish it will ultimately be destroyed, it will eventually come to nothing. And we witnessed this on a regular basis, giant businesses collapse, well maintained, homes are sold, perfect bodies die, and they deteriorate in the graves. And the thing is that these worldly activities, they keep us busy and distracted and preoccupied.
But remember, that the activities of the hereafter meaning what a person does in this life, for the home of the Hereafter, and the occupation of the heart, with the whole of the Hereafter, that is not Larry below, it is actually a Bada, it is worship, it is the so it is rewardable poor to be said that the believers life is with righteous actions. So it is not play and amusement. So we all need to reflect on ourselves that what are my activities all about? What are my concerns all about? What is it that I do? And what is it that I am ultimately seeking from the things that I'm doing? dinar alemu, we know that you owe profit are saddened by what they say. And indeed they do not call you
untruthful, but it is the verses of Allah that the wrongdoers reject. You see, sometimes people hurt us. And it is necessary that we learn to bounce back to recover from that hurt because we cannot always control what people say. And life is too short. We cannot waste it away because of what people say to us. So there are certain things that stunted recovery. One of those things is personalization. The belief that we are at fault that you know what if somebody has said something to me than it is because I deserve it. And that is not true. What people say to you is not always true. The way people hurt you is not because you deserve it. People hurt the prophets of Allah who
are to send them also. And what does Allah say, are the Nara animal in the hula Zulu kala, the Yoko loon we know you feel sad because of what they say for whom la you can be buena, but they're not actually denying you. These people are actually denying the verses of Allah, the problem is in them, it is not in you. So don't personalize it. Don't take to heart, the hurtful things that people say to you. And certainly we're messengers
denied before you, but they were patient over the effects of denial and they were harmed until our victory came to them. Allah's help comes to those who are patient and none can alter the words of Allah. And there has certainly come to you some information about the previous messengers. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said uploadable Eman is sobre sama how the best of Eman is patience and softness, gentleness, and even though we know this, that it's important to be patient, a reminder is needed. the help of Allah comes when we are patient. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said wireless is an industrial model sobor know that the help of Allah comes with patients.
So when you're experiencing difficulty, then exhibit some patients and Allah's help will come accordingly. And if they're evasion is difficult for you, then if you are able to seek a tunnel into the earth or stairway into the sky to bring them assign then do so. But if Allah had willed, He would have united them upon guidance. So never be of the ignorant in Namaste ajibola deny a smear on only those who here will respond. But the dead Allah who will resurrect them, then to him, they will be returned. The believer listens. The believer tries to understand and the believer responds, and the person whose heart is dead, sealed, then he doesn't listen. He doesn't accept he doesn't
respond. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that, that a believer has been created such that he will be put in many trials. He is often repenting and very forgetful. The believer forgets. However, when he is reminded, he accepts admonition in the myos, the DB Latina has smart own work ALU and they say, Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord say, Indeed, Allah is able to send down a sign, but most of them do not know. And there is no creature on or within the earth or bird that flies with its wings, except that there are communities like you, we have not neglected in the register a thing Allah knows about everything, then unto their Lord, they will be gathered.
So do you not see these things as signs? But those who deny our verses are deaf and dumb, within darknesses whomever Allah wills, He leaves a stray and whomever He wills, He puts him on a straight path, say have you considered if they're came to you the punishment of Allah or their came to you the hour? Is it other than Allah you would invoke? If you should be truthful? No, it is him alone, you would invoke and he would remove that for which you invoked him, if you will, and he would forget what you associate with him. And we have already sent messengers to nations before you then we seize them with poverty and hardship that perhaps lulla homea Toba rune for him, perhaps they
might humble themselves. You see, when Allah subhanaw taala gives us difficulty. And sometimes that difficulty is followed up by another form of difficulty. What is the reason? What is the purpose is to torture us? No, it is so that we humble ourselves because we were created to worship Allah. And very frequently we forget to worship Allah. Even though we are praying, right? We are praying Salah we are you know, performing our obligations, we fail to truly remember Allah, we fail to truly humble ourselves before Allah. So difficulties are supposed to shake us. They're supposed to wake us up. They're supposed to bring us out of our slumber la Allahumma tagawa rune and this is what we
need to do that when we are in any difficulty, let us cry before Allah and remember a lot of problems. They become easy when you cry before Allah, when you cry before people, then yes, people will, you know feel bad for you, they'll give you a hug and these days upon Allah, that physical connection is even gone. Right? So it is necessary that when when we are cut off, you know, in so many ways from so many different people. We should remember the connection that we have with Allah subhanaw taala and we should humble ourselves before Allah, raise your hands and ask him, humble yourself before him cry before him. Because a person who does not ask Allah and the Prophet
sallallahu earlier said I'm setting my lemmya le Allah, yo Bob Marley. Whoever does not ask Allah than Allah becomes angry with him. So ask him, keep turning back to him. keep crying before him. Then why when our punishment came to them, did they not humble themselves, but their hearts became hardened and shed
Time made attractive to them that which they were doing. And this is truly an are the hub on a person that the difficulties in life don't wake them up that they justify their wrongdoing. fella Myrna sumeru kilbey fatahna la him Ababa Kula Ababa poolish. A. So when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, we open to them the doors of every good thing until when they rejoiced in that which they were given. we seize them suddenly, and they were then in despair. This is also a kind of punishment, that a person keeps sinning, and worldly things become more accessible to them. So remember, the abundance of worldly blessings and their constriction, both are a trial.
The abundance of worldly blessings and their constriction, both are a trial. So whether we are in good times, or we are experiencing difficulty, the main thing is that no situation should distance us from Allah. The real problem is in being distant from Allah, it's not the presence or the absence of blessings. Remember that. Just because a person has so many blessings, it doesn't mean that Allah is happy with them. And just because a person is going through trial, it doesn't mean that Allah is angry with them. But when a person is cut off from Allah, a person is distant from Allah, they fail to remember Allah and thank him and worship Him, then this is a sign of wretchedness. For Kota
ardabil comilla Dena wala mu, so the people that committed wrong were eliminated. Well, hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. And praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds, this is good riddance, that those who commit oppression when they're removed from the earth, then this is actually a blessing,
a blessing for who a blessing for the earth for the inhabitants of the earth. Once we learned that a funeral person that that a funeral procession passed by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said Mr. De Haan was thora. Herman, relieved or relieving? So the people said, What is relieved and relieving? He said, a believer is relieved by deaths from the troubles and hardships of the world, and leaves departs for the mercy of Allah, while the death of a wicked person relieves the people, the land, the trees, and animals from him. So we need to see what kind of people are we? What kind of people are we? Are we those who bring comfort to others around us? Or are we such that
when we go away, people, praise Allah, thank Allah that Alhamdulillah so and so is gone. Say Have you considered if Allah should take away your hearing and your sight and set a seal upon your hearts? Which de t other than Allah could bring them back to you? Look how we diversify the verses, then they still turn away. Say, have you considered if the punishment of Allah should come to you unexpectedly? Or manifestly Bolton? Oh, Jonathan, and remember, both are scary. But it is scarier. When you can see a punishment or is an other a tournament in front of you, you can see it approaching. And this is something that we can experience these days. You see the fear that oh, we
might get affected by this disease, we might get affected by this virus. This fear itself is so debilitating, any it is something that has taken away the comfort and peace from our lives, where we are afraid to even step out of the house. We are afraid to shake hands with people where we're afraid when something comes inside the house. We don't want to touch it. We clean it so much. So Botha rotten. Hell, you will echo lol Qawwali moon will any be destroyed but the wrongdoing people we should always ask Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness, and also for safety. And we send not the messengers except as Bringers of good tidings and Warner's. So whoever believes and reforms there
will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. So Eman and esla. Both are necessary. Believe and also correct yourself. Leave bad habits do good things now. But those who deny our versus the punishment will touch them for their defiant disobedience. say oh Prophet, I do not tell you that I have the depositories containing the provision of Allah or that I know the unseen nor do I tell you that I'm an angel. I only follow what is revealed to me say is the blind equivalent to the seeing then will you not give thought what unveil be Hila de Nyah homophone and worn by the Quran, those who fear what do they fear that they will be?
gathered before their Lord, for them, besides Him will be no protector and no intercessor. So remind them, warn them that they might become righteous, and do not send away those who call upon their Lord morning and afternoon seeking His countenance. You see, there were some companions that were poor, and some companions, who were, who didn't really have social status and wish to kin of Makkah. They said to the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that send these people away, if you want us to sit with you. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed that no letter to the lady and you cannot send them away. Why? Because they call upon their Lord in the morning and in the afternoon, and they seek his
face, not upon you is anything of their account and not upon them is anything of your account. So were you to send them away, you would then be of the wrongdoers. So we see here that Victor is mentioned remembering Allah morning and evening and such people are worthy of the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. You see in the morning, and in the evening, we usually become very busy. But the person who manages to remember Allah in the morning and in the evening, it shows that the last panel thought is most important to them.
And also remember that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I sit in the company of the people who remember Allah, from morning prayer until the sun rises, is dearer to me that I emancipate for slaves from the children of Israel. And then I sit with the people who remember Allah from our sort of prayer until the sunsets This is dearer to me than that I emancipate for slaves. So we should also be of those who remember Allah in the morning. These days, a lot of people you know, after they eat some food, they're not able to sleep right away. So make use of that time. And remember Allah, wait until the sun rises, and then pray and then perhaps take a nap. What could
alika fatahna Baba whom he borrowed, and thus, we have tried some of them through others that the disbelievers might say is it these whom Allah has favored among us, is not Allah most knowing of those who are grateful? What either Jirka Latina, you mean wanna be IR Tina, for call Salaam Alaikum. And when those come to you who believe in our verses, say, peace be upon you, your Lord has decreed upon himself, mercy, Cotabato, buku, Milan FC Hiroshima, that any of you who does wrong out of ignorance, and then repents after that, and corrects himself, indeed, he is Forgiving and Merciful. Allah is Forgiving and Merciful to such people. So we should repent from our sins, we
should try to correct and improve ourselves at all times, and do is the thought for sins morning and in the evening, we learn in a Hadees that Allah subhanaw taala stretches out his hand during the night so that the people may repent for the sins committed from dawn until dusk, meaning the sins that you committed all day long, you get the opportunity at night to seek forgiveness from them.
Sorry, you get so. So
in this Hades, we learned that the sins that we have committed all day long, then in the night, we get the opportunity to seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala for all of those sins, and then it's not over. The Hadith continues, that Allah stretches out his hand during the day, so that the people may repent for the sins committed from dusk to dawn, meaning any sins that were committed at night, you have the opportunity to seek forgiveness for them during the day. So this means that anytime we commit a sin, and we realize, then don't just sit with that guilt, ask Allah to forgive you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever is good in what remains of this life,
then he will be forgiven for what has passed, and whoever does evil in what remains of his life, meaning he deliberately does not repent, does not change himself does not do his law, then he will be punished for what passed and what he does later.
And thus do We detail the verses and thus the way of the criminals will become evident? Say, indeed, I have been forbidden to worship those you invoke besides Allah say, I will not follow your desires, for I would then have gone astray and I would not be of the rightly guided say, indeed, I am unclear evidence from my Lord and you have denied it. I do not have that for which you are impatient. The decision is only for Allah, he relates the truth. And he is the best of deciders. Say, if I had that for which you are impatient, meaning you want me to bring the punishment right away. If I if I could do that, and I did that, then the matter would have been decided between me and you. But Allah is
most knowing of the wrongdoers. We're in
The human fatty her Liebe layer, Allah Maha Illa, who and with him are the keys of the unseen, none knows them except he. So the real unseen is known only to Allah. And he knows what is on the land, and in the sea, anything big or small, that is somewhere on the earth, or it is somewhere in the ocean, Allah subhanaw taala knows about it. And we barely know of what is on the land of what exists in the sea of what exists in the water, it is said that we know more about the surface of the moon, than we know about the surface of the ocean bed, not a leaf falls, but that he knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth, and no moist or dry thing, but that it is written
in a clear record. Not only does Allah subhanaw taala know about everything he has also, he has also recorded everything. And we admire the knowledge of people so much, that will, it's amazing how much they know. But we should also be amazed with the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala because the knowledge of people no matter how much they know, it becomes outdated, very soon, it becomes discredited within very short periods of time. Allah subhanaw taala knows about every seed, who will eat it, where it will rest what will become of it, he knows about every leaf when it will fall, where it will blow to which land it will fall on and so on and so forth. Our knowledge is so
deficient and Allah's knowledge is perfect, so trust Him, and it is he who takes your souls by night and knows what you have committed by day. We forget what we do during the day, but Allah subhanaw taala knows, then he revives you there and
then he revives you there in that a specified term may be fulfilled. So my la he Magiera come, then to him will be your return, then he will inform you about what you use to do. We will be answerable to him well, who will call hero phulkari body and he is the subjugate her over his servants and he sends over you guardian angels Until when death comes to one of you. Our Messengers take him and they do not fail. They do not fail in their duties. They take the soul when it is time to take it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when the time of unbelievers departure from this world draws near the angel the descent to him from the sky, whose faces are as bright as if they
were the sun, they bring with them the shroud of Jenna and it's fragrance this sit at the distance of his visions extent. Then the angel of death comes and sits by his head and says a year 200 of super yerba all satisfied soul oh good soul will hora de Isla mo filati min Allah He will bland come out to Allah's forgiveness and Allah approval. So his soul exits the body like a water drop drips out of a vessel, and the Angel of Death receives it but in less than the blink of an eye, the other angels take the soul and cover him in the shroud of Jenna and apply fragrance on him which they have brought and such fragrance emanates from his body, like a whiff of fragrance that is smelled on the
earth. They take his soul and ascend up to the heavens, we should also ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us a good death. So Maru do Illallah himolla whom will help then then they His servants are returned to him there, then they His servants are returned to a law. Their true Lord, unquestionably, his is the judgment and he is the swiftest of the accountants say who rescues you from the darknesses of the say, who rescues you from the darknesses of the land and sea when you call upon him employing allowed and privately if he should save us from this crisis, we will surely be among the thankful holy law who Yuna g commend her say it is Allah who saves you from it, woman
Cooley, Colvin. And from every distress, any distress that you experience, whether it is physical, mental, emotional, financial, remember, Allah is the one who rescues us from it. So when in difficulty, ask Allah to rescue you. So my Phantom tertiary cone, then you still associate others with him, you'll give credit to others say he is the one able to sand down upon you affliction from above you or from beneath your feet, or to confuse you, so you become it, you become sex, and you make and make you taste the violence of one another. Allah is able to do that, look, how we diversify the signs that they might understand. So the cure to all of these
troubles is still far, but your people have denied it. While it is the truth say I am not over you a manager, liquid Lena by a muster car was solfatara Moon for every happening is a finality, there is a fixed time for it and you are going to know our problem is that we get very hasty, we find waiting extremely hard. But we need to become patient, we need to remember that whatever is going on is happening by Allah's will. And there is a fixed time that Allah subhanaw taala has already set for it. You see when a woman is pregnant, the pregnancy is hard, but the pregnancy has its term, it cannot be delayed it and it cannot be shortened. And so when we are going through any difficulty in
our lives also let us not become impatient. We see we make wonder ah and we say our problem should go away like this in an instant. But that's not how things are. There is a leak only Nava a muster call for every happening is a finality, meaning for everything that occurs is a term when it will come to an end. But it's the ignorant who don't understand who object at Allah's decisions. And when you see those who engage in offensive discourse concerning our vs. Meaning people who are arguing about the ayatollah, criticizing them, making fun of them, then turn away from them until they enter into another conversation. And if shaitan should cause you to forget because radon does cause us to
forget good things, then do not remain after the reminder with the wrongdoing people. So we learned that we should avoid such gatherings, whether it is of Muslims or those who are not Muslim. When people are making fun of the book of Allah when they're criticizing the Quran, when they're arguing about the Quran, then do not stay in such a place. Because remember, the Quran is for guidance. It is not to make us argue the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever seeks knowledge in order to argue with the foolish or to show off before the scholars or to attract people's attention than Allah who will admit him to hell.
So we're seeking knowledge is highly virtuous, seeking it for the wrong reason, is also sinful. The Prophet sallallahu earlier Sallam said do not argue through the Quran, nor deny parts of it with other parts meaning do not bring in one idea from one place and another idea from another place and then show them that you know what this idea contradicts this idea. Don't do that. By Allah. If the believer argues through the Quran, he will be overcome. Meaning the believer will always surrender he will not disrespect the Quran. And if the hypocrite argues through the Quran, he will overcome so he will end up disrespecting the Quran. So there is no real benefit in arguing about the Quran, you
will only end up dishonouring The Book of Allah accept every Ayah as it is, when Allah levena takuna Madhavi him and Shay and those who fear Allah are not held accountable for the disbelievers at all.
So this means that if you leave them, then you are not guilty, because you have to save yourself. It is not your responsibility to go prove Islam to every single person. Yes, you you should take the message of the truth to people. But when people are arguing for the sake of arguing, they're arguing from a place of arrogance and denial, then don't waste your time over there. Don't put your faith at risk, then go and do other important things, but only for a reminder that perhaps they will fear him. So do remind them do advise that is your obligation. However, once you see the things are beyond your ability, then leave with dignity and leave those who take their religion as amusement
and aversion and whom the worldly life has diluted. This is the reason why they make fun of Islam. So remember, the religion is something honorable, it is dignified. It is not for the purpose of argumentation and pastime. But in the name of freedom of speech. People say whatever they want about the Quran, even Muslims, so remember, that leave those who take their religion as amusement and diversion. You don't have to be with such people. You don't have to do that. You see our job is to change ourselves, not the Quran, but remind with the Quran, lest a soul should be given up to destruction for what it earned. Because remember, sins trap a person in this life and in the next.
So it is necessary that we keep reminding people of what the Quran says so that they come out of their sense, it will have other than Allah, no protector and no intercessor and if it should offer every compensation it would not be taken from it. Those are the ones who are given to destruction for what they have earned for them will be a drink of scalding water.
a painful punishment because they used to disbelieve, say, shall we invoke instead of Allah, that which neither benefits us nor harms us. And we turned back on our heels after Allah has guided us. If we were to do that, then we would be like one whom the devil's enticed to wander upon the earth confused, while he has companions inviting him to guidance, calling him that come to us, say, in the hood, Allah who will who the indeed the guidance of Allah is the only guidance, and we have been commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds. So remember, anytime that you have questions, and you have, you know, concerns and you read an eye of the Quran, and you want to understand why something
has been mentioned, then always ask Allah for guidance. Before you ask people that Oh, by the way, this is what the Quran says. And what does that mean? ask Allah for guidance, because guidance comes from him. It doesn't come from intellectual reasoning alone. We're an acclaimed salata. Taku, and to establish prayer and fear him and it is he to whom you will be gathered, and it is he who created the heavens on earth and truth. And the day he says Be, and it is His word is the truth. And His is the dominion on the day the horn is blown. He is the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed. And he is the wise the acquainted with Karla Ibrahim Ali Abhi. And mentioned when Ibrahim said to his
father, as do you take idols as deities, indeed, I see you and your people to be in manifest error. So Ibrahim alayhis, salam, he made the truth known over here. And this was not disrespectful, speaking the truth is not being disrespectful. It is the way in which we speak that may be disrespectful. And thus did we show Ibrahim the realm of the heavens and the earth, that he would be among the certain in faith. Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, ne he was a less friend. He was a he was devout before Allah subhanaw taala. And he's truly a role model for us an example. So we must reflect on his descriptions in the Quran to learn from them. Who was he? He was not of those who commit Schick.
He was a Muslim, he fully surrendered to Allah. He was Allah's friend. And he is an excellent example. Allah says go to Canada, como sweater has an atone fee, Ibrahim. So when the night covered him with darkness, he saw a star. He said, This is my Lord. But when it said, he said, I like not those that disappear. And when he saw the moon rising, he said, This is my Lord. But when it said, he said, unless my lord guides me, I will surely be among the people gone astray. And when he saw the sun rising, he said, This is my lord, this is greater. But when it said, he said, All my people, indeed I am free from what you associate with Allah. Indeed, I have turned my face to word he who
created the heavens and the earth inclining toward truth, and I am not of those who associate others with Allah and His people argued with him. He said, Do you argue with me concerning Allah, while he has guided me, and I fear not what you associate with him, unless my lord should will something meaning no matter how much you threaten me, no matter how much you, you threaten me that your idols are going to harm me, because I have rejected them. Your threats are not going to harm me at all. Unless and until Allah should will something my lord encompasses all things in knowledge, then will you not remember. So this is a beautiful lesson for us, because sometimes people do threaten us and
we begin to feel afraid because of their lies. So in this ayah is so much encouragement, that don't fear the empty threats of people. Sometimes what people say is just words, it doesn't, it's shallow, it doesn't have any truth to it. What what is true and real is what Allah subhanaw taala says, so put your trust in Allah and don't fear what people say, what Kay for a harmful matter. shiocton and how should I fear what you associate while you do not fear that you have associated with Allah that for which he has sent down to you know, authority, in reality, you are at fault, we are not at fault, because you are denying Allah, you are rejecting Allah. So don't think that we are at fault.
So which of the two parties has more right to security? If you should know? How do you feel safe in this earth, Allah Earth, knowing that Allah subhanaw taala is all powerful over you? A livina Manu wollam el de su imana, whom below him, they who believe and do not make
their belief with injustice, and what is the greatest injustice? It is sure those people who are ecola, whom will undo those will have security while methadone and they are rightly guided. So remember, real safety, real security and true peace is only felt by the one who believes in Allah alone. The one who associates partners with Allah, the One who believes that there are other things, other entities that are as strong or or as powerful as Allah subhanaw taala. Then such people can never feel contentment, they can fake it. But real contentment is for those who worship Allah alone, and this contentment, this peace, this security will last forever. in Jannah the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam said, He who meets Allah without associating anything with Allah will enter Paradise, and he who meets him, associating anything with him, will enter hellfire. And that was our conclusive argument, which we give Ibrahim against his people, we raised by degrees, whom we will, indeed your Lord is wise, and knowing. So these are the fruits that Ibrahim already said and received because of his towhead because of the fact that he believed in the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala he loved Allah subhanaw taala the most he feared Allah subhanaw taala the most. And this is, and these are some of the fruits that he received. What were they that last panel Todd have
raised his ranks Allah, Allah gave him confidence, he a pain in the face of rejection, and he gave him the ability to remain firm, he raised his ranks, so he got his reward in the world, and in the hereafter also, he will be given a great reward. Allah gave him preference over the people of the worlds and we gave and we gave to Ibrahim his help and your code, all of them we guided and knew we guided before and among his descendants that would answer a man and a tube and use of and Moosa and her own thus do We reward the doers of good Ibrahim Ali Salaam. You see when he was
when he was calling people to Allah, he was alone. Hardly anybody believed in him. But look at his determination, he did not give up and what happened? Allah subhanaw taala cause that good to continue for centuries. That even today, we take the example of Ibrahim Ernie his center. So sometimes we feel afraid and we feel very disappointed when we are rejected by people but there's no need to feel disappointed over there. Because you are believe you are putting your trust in Allah. And remember, Allah will not waste your sincere effort. And Zachary Yeah. And he and he are here, and Risa and ilias colombina Sally hain. All were of the righteous one prophet after another one
nation after another. And this marine and Alia sir, and Eunice and loot were Coolen for Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah amin, and all of them, we preferred over the worlds and some among their fathers and their descendants and their brothers, and we chose them and we guided them to a straight path, their Lika who the law that is the guidance of Allah. Yeah, they may be he may a shot luminary body by which he guides whomever He wills of his servants. But if they had associated others with Allah than worthless for them would be whatever they were doing. So remember, schicke is not accepted by Allah subhanaw taala, no matter who it is, even if it's a prophet of Allah, because you see, so many
prophets are mentioned here. If they were to do schicke, then their deeds would be wasted. May Allah protect us from any form of major or minor. Those are the ones to whom we give the Scripture and authority and Prophethood but if the disbelievers deny it, then we have entrusted it to the people who are not there in disbelievers. So if the people of Makkah denied the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, No, no harm, no loss, because Allah subhanaw taala brought another people so when a person rejects Allah, they're only depriving themselves will equal Latina had Allah those are the ones whom Allah has guided for be who they are who makuta de so from their guidance, take an example follow
their example, say I asked you for this message, no payment. It is not but a reminder for the world's without a doubt Allah Hakka Paddy and they did not appraise Allah with true appraisal. The fact is, that they have not recognized Allah. The fact is, they don't know who Allah is. This is why they dare to reject Him and they dare to reject His messengers, especially when they said Allah did not reveal to a human being anything
Say, who revealed the scripture that Moosa brought as light and guidance to the people. You make it into pages, disclosing some of it and concealing much. And you were taught that which you knew not, neither you nor your forefathers say, Allah revealed it, then leave them in their empty discourse amusing themselves, let such people be. And this Quran is a book, which we have sent down, bless it, and confirming what was before it, this quote on his mobile rock, it's a source of blessing, that you may warn the mother of the cities and those around it because Makkah Central, those who believe in the hereafter believe in it, and they're maintaining their prayers, and who is more unjust than
one who invents a lie about Allah? Or says, it has been revealed to me, while nothing has been revealed to me. And there have been many people who have made this false claim. Remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the last and final messenger and prophet and no prophet is coming after him. And one who says I will reveal something like what Allah has revealed, meaning those who say, Oh, this Quran, it's nothing, we can also produce something like such people are greatly unjust. And if you could see when the wrong doors are in the overwhelming pangs of death, while the angels extend their hand saying, discharge your souls, today, you will be awarded the
punishment of extreme humiliation for what you used to say against Allah, other than the truth, and that you were towards is vs be being arrogant. So the thing is, that any person who is arrogant to accept the book of Allah, any person who is arrogant to surrender to Allah should think that How long will I have my freedom? How long am I going to live? Eventually, I am going to die. And is it not safer to believe in Allah? Any what's the harm? What is really the harm? If I believe in the hereafter if I believe in Allah, and he, how does it damage me? How does it harm me, it doesn't harm at all. In fact, the healthy boundaries that Islam gives, for instance, they only benefit a person.
So those who live with such arrogance, look at their end, it is horrible. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when the disbeliever slave is about to depart this world and move to the Hereafter, angels come down to him from the heavens, with dark faces, bringing sackcloth from hell, they sit in front of him, as far as the eye can see, then the Angel of Death comes and sits at the head and says, all evil soul, come out to the anger of Allah and His wrath, then it then it coworkers within the body, meaning the, the the soul, it goes and tries to hide within the body and is dragged out like a, like an iron skewer is passed through wet wool. Any What do you think is
going to happen to that world, it's going to be torn to shreds in so painful, it will be set to them. And you have certainly come to us alone, individually, as we created you the first time and you have left whatever We bestowed upon you behind you everything you had gone, it's in the past, and we do not see with you your intercessors, which you claimed that there were among you associates of Allah, it has all been severed between you and lost from you is what you use to claim. So this is a reality, that every person will be alone on the Day of Judgment, without the support of their family, without the support of their wealth, or their worldly privilege, or their worldly
privileges, or their false beliefs and their claims, each person will be alone. So each person should be concerned about that meeting. Indeed, Allah is the cleaver of grain and date seeds, he brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living, that is Allah. So how are you diluted? He is the cleaver of daybreak, and has made the night for rest and the sun and moon for calculation. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might the knowing and it is he who placed for you the stars, that you may be guided by them through the darkness of the land and sea. We have detailed the signs for people who know. And if you think about it, the world is such a perfect home
for us. And he even though we are surrounded by so many things that could destroy life on Earth, yet we are so safe, so safe. So who is enabling all of this, who has made all of this and it is he who produced you from one soul and gave you a place of dwelling and of storage. And this isn't the grave. We have detailed the science for people who understand and it is he who sends down rain from the sky and we produce thereby the growth of all things we produce from it greenery from which we produce grains arranged in layers and from the palm trees of its emerging fruit our clusters hanging low, and we produce gardens of grape vines and olives and pomegranates similar yet
varied look at each of its fruit when it yields and at its ripening. Indeed in that are Signs for people who believe. Notice how when the fruit bunches are mentioned the fact that they're hanging low is also mentioned. So Allah subhanaw taala has not just created provision for us, He has also made it accessible to us. This has Allah's mercy and we are told over here, look at the fruit when it yields and at its ripening. So when you eat your fruit salad today inshallah with your thoughts, make sure that you also reflect on the food that you eat, appreciate the colors, the textures, the fragrance, the fragrance, which are Lula he shall occur and Ginny will holla home, but they have
attributed to a lot partners, the jinn while Allah has created them. This was the wish the king of Arabia and have fabricated for him sons and daughters without knowledge, Exalted is He and high above what they describe. He is Originator of the heavens and the earth, how could he have a son when he does not have a companion, and he created all things, and he is of all things knowing, that is Allah your Lord, there is no day to accept him, the creator of all things, so worship Him, and He is Disposer of all things. So put your trust in Him, led to the Ricoh Abu Saud, vision perceives him not, but he perceives all vision, and he is the subtle, the acquainted. So anywhere we see anywhere
we look, Allah subhanaw taala knows what we're looking at. So guard your vision, there has come to you enlightenment from your Lord. This quote of mine is an invitation. So people reflect, think about it. So whoever will see does so for the benefit of his soul, and whoever is blind, does harm against it, and say, I am not a guardian over you. I can only tell you, and thus do We diversify the verses. Yet the disbelievers will say you have studied, meaning they only increase in their denial when the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam recited the Quran to them, they said oh you learned this and this from such and such. And so we may make the Quran clear for people who know, follow Prophet,
what has been revealed to you from your Lord, there is no deity except Him and turn away from those who associate others with Allah. Don't listen to them. But if Allah had willed, they would not have associated and we have not appointed you over them as a guardian, nor are you a manager over them and Do not insult those they invoke other than Allah, Do not insult their idols Do not insult their gods, lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge, and then you will be a cause of that. So even when you are responding to people who show hate to a snap, be dignified, thus we have made pleasing to every community, their deeds, then to their Lord is their return. And he will inform
them about what they used to do. And they swear by a lot their strongest oaths, that if a sign came to them, they will surely believe in it. Say, the signs are only with Allah. And what will make you perceive that even if a sign came, they would not believe meaning their demand for miracles is only an excuse one or a label of either to whom were able sada, whom come along you umino be a well, Amara, and we will turn away their hearts and their eyes, just as they refuse to believe in it the first time when other home fields, the lionni him, Yama Hoon, and we will leave them in their transgression, wandering blindly. So remember, a person who shows arrogance towards Allah, and his
book and His Messenger, then such people because of their arrogance, they're turned further away in their misguidance because Allah does not like arrogance, but a person who comes from a place of genuine and humble curiosity than such people on last panel title so guides them my last panel tada protect us from arrogance, and we are lost pounds are makers, his humble servants who seek His approval.
