Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu How's everyone doing today? Sonnambula we are back with another Shahid Ramadan session first because it has a lot a lot of dough as we've already covered, you know the one sister they mentioned yesterday so we just have one more addition or you can say one more version of that there are we going to cover towards the end but before that we're just going to go and start doing our book we were supposed to do in this session right so inshallah, today we are going to move on and talk about the next chapter and the next title of this month, and that is the month of fasting. So it's shadows.
So inshallah let's begin properly now hemudu Manasa Leonardo Zhu Ling Karim a mother I bow to Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Rubbish roughly sorry, we're certainly Omri waffling. oculata melissani of gahoo only probenecid Anna itema Aloma fabric nafi de May Allah give us the correct understanding of the deen rely enable us to make the most of this beautiful month. And may Allah enable us to get forgiveness this month. So Al Hamdulillah, another beautiful month, another beautiful session and so much to learn about this month from Quran and Sunnah both hamdulillah so we're going to start off by talking about this month, and why it is that important.
So let's begin. So, fasting is a very special act of worship of this month of Ramadan, which was made an obligation in chabanne second history. So it was made an obligation and Siobhan and after that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam observed this Ramadan throughout his life. So fasting was all was also an obligation not just for Muslims, but it was an obligation for previous nations as it is now for us, and how do we know that we know this from the Quran? So to Bukhara and everyone 83 Yeah, are you are Latina, Armando, or you have believed, decreed upon you as fasting, as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous. So that you may become from among those who are not
duping. There's another words, and we're 185 that also talks about Ramadan and fasting and in that we also find approve that why why should we fast and that is this part from an Shahe Domingo Masha Hara folia son, so whoever cites the new moon of the month, let him fast it, the reference for that is sort of abakada iO 185. So the obligation to fast is proved by several things of a solar loss algorithm as well. It was not only just copper on but also a lot of our hobbies, not just one, but many, and from different sources. So we're going to share some with you today. So the you know, the very main one which talks about the five pillars, is mentioned in Bihari and Muslim both, but here
we have chosen the words from so he must come to the Hadees goes on and says booney al Islam or either hums, Islam is built on five pillars. First one she had the testimony that there is no God but Allah, and that Muhammad is His slave and messenger. So the law using
what you call me sada and establishing prayer, what EDA is, and pains aka Maha jailbait and the performance of pilgrimage to the house and the house is garba was Swami Rama, lasagna Ramadan and the fasting in the month of Ramadan. So not only is fasting an obligation, but it also has many benefits and it is a source of earning immense rewards from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So not only it is fulfilling the obligation, but we're getting a lot of rewards not just one and there's so many benefits, like we can be saved from Hellfire we will be in January there will be special treatment for the people in July and or inshallah, let's just look at all of those points one after the other.
So first one, it's a means of entry into Jana. The soul Allah sallallahu wasallam he was asked by as a hobby, Abu Amarna, what the other one that I came to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and said, order me to perform a deed that will allow me to enter Jannah
He said Are they gonna be some stick to fasting are upon us fasting or take this fasting as your tool, but in the whole Miss letter because there is nothing like it there is nothing else which can get you the kind of rewards fasting can get to some panela so whenever you are feeling like getting more rewards even outside Ramadan stick to fasting and you all know that you know we can fast every Monday Thursday and inshallah once we are in Ramadan mode, so even after Ramadan it will be easy for you to carry on. So just keep fasting Mondays and Thursdays and don't lose this habit if it's very hard for you to do it every Monday Thursday, then at least three days, every month. So we'd also we
all know about the three days part right so the 13th 14th and 15th of every month. So let's say you can't even do them consecutively for whatever reason, then pick any three days in a month and there is another benefit of that inshallah some other way we can talk about that as well. So let's move on and talk about the next benefit of fasting. The next benefit of fasting is a special door in Jannah. We all know about it right? A lot of people they name their kids rayyan as well Rasul Allah sallallahu wasallam said, Indeed there is a gate of Jannah It is called a ray and it will be called on the Day of Judgment. Where are the ones who have asked so whoever is among the fasting ones they
will enter the store and the one who enters it will never be thirsty again. Because we bore the thirst today. We are not you know drinking while fasting and it may be a very long day or hard day, but still we're doing that so inshallah because of that Allah subhanaw taala will reward the fasting people with no Thurs. Especially for the people who will enter through the door of Orion. So May Allah make us among them. Whenever we hear about any reward to do with Jana. In any course while reciting while listening to a lecture, we should make the offer rate right away. That's the best way to go about it. In Sharla there's also a special reward to do it, like fasting because when it comes
to any other act of worship, we kind of know how much reward will we get like, you know, when it comes to recitation of the Quran, we know that for every letter, you're going to get 10 rewards, right? So and also when it comes to you know, our Salah we know that every civilized like 10 follow up, right so like one good deed gets us 10 good deeds at least the reward like it counts as if it's 10. But when it comes to fasting we find out from a Heidi sponsor here Buhari that every good deed of son of Adam is for him, except for fasting. Allah subhanaw taala said in Hades footsy it is for me and I shall reward the fasting person for it. So it's like a surprise. It will be a great honor
that Allah subhanaw taala will give some special surprise for that person.
So you know when it comes to any other good deed, we get rewards as we talked about earlier as well 10 rewards at least but it can go up to 700
but the reward for fasting we haven't been given any clue about it. That what exactly are you going to get? So that's like a surprise for us? Well, hamdulillah and it will be an amazing surprise. In sha
Allah subhanho wa Taala he is so merciful, he also appreciates whatever a fasting person goes through. So there is a Heidi's about that as well. Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam said by he in whose hand is my soul, the breath of the fasting person is more pleasing to Allah than the fragrance of musk You know, sometimes we're annoyed by it and whatnot, it doesn't mean that we should not stay clean. We should keep using Simba throughout the day. But you know, there is still something that you know bothers us because you know, of course we are not using a remote you're not using the passes so we will feel a bit weird but don't worry Allah subhanaw taala appreciates that as well.
hamdulillah fasting is a shield you know the way shield protects you against something like a firewall. So fasting is a shield it comes in, you know, Hades, or crmo Jonah fasting is a shield from what minnaar against Hellfire from Hellfire, like the shield of the person who is in Battlefield or the one who's fighting. So through fasting people are saved from all those sins which may lead them to hellfire. So May Allah make us among those who are saved from hellfire.
Every time we fast, we are distanced away from Hellfire which is amazing hamdulillah from Sahih Muslim we learn no slave fast one day in the way of Allah without Allah putting his face a 70 years journey away from the fire on account of that
They just one day will, you know, like let's say just one day is going to just throw us way too far from Hellfire, which is great. Now let us see what is the meaning of the word cm or some. In Arabic language. The word Seon literally means to stop and refrain from doing something completely. So like stopping something altogether completely, not just doing a little bit, like, you know, CME and other like religions, it's still there, but they can drink water, or they drink some type of food, and they don't drink. They don't eat other types of foods. But cm literally means to stop to stop completely, not just, you know, half heartedly or not just eating something and leaving something
this is complete cut off. So the situation in Syria, the definition is write it down. The complete definition is not in front of you right now, to show servitude to Allah, by abstaining from eating, drinking, sexual relations and other acts that nullify the fast from pre dawn to sunset with the intention of worship. Remember, intention counts, it has to be with the intention of worship.
Therefore, fasting is not just a means of abstaining from food and drink, but also of leaving many bad habits. That's why ignore Josie Rahim Allah, He divides the fasting into three levels. So let's just look at the levels. They're amazing. You can also find the details online about this. So just write down the name of the scholar it now Josie, he has stated three levels of fasting, one fast is on fast, which means ordinary fast. So ordinary fasting is to abstain from eating and physical desires. That's pretty much it, like usual Muslims, they do that, then it comes to the next level. And that is called fasting. And that is special fasting, it is to protect not only ourselves against
food and desires, but also protect our eyes, and our tongue, and our limbs, and all other organs of the body from sending. So not watching anything wrong, not saying anything wrong, I'm not listening to anything wrong, not going anyplace wrong. So hamdullah, that special fasting, now comes the best level May Allah make us among those who are going to be harsil class. So this is a unique type of fasting or you can say, super special fasting. So May Allah enable us to fast every fast on this level. So let's see what it is. It is that kind of fasting. On top of ordinary and special, we're going to include all of those, you know, you can say features of those facets in it, and on top of
them. Now the additional features of this fast is that we read the heart of every useless and baseless thought and of any idea that would distance one from Allah and fill the heart with the remembrance of Allah alone, not thinking not worrying about anything or anyone just focused just focused on Allah, just trying to make the most of this fast, trying to find ways to please Allah, not just obligations, but more and more and more inshallah not missing out any opportunity to get one more reward. So for this chapter, let's make a checklist.
We have learned about a lot of benefits to do with fasting so that how long we await them by turning it into a checklist. So our checklist for today is we should make sure that our intention is for Allah and we are solely fasting to please him not to please anyone else. And how are we going to keep a check on our intention? Like even asking ourselves why am I fasting? Is it to lose weight? No. Is it for any other reason? Is it because I want to please someone? Or is it because I want people to think that I'm a good Muslim? So inshallah fix all of that. No, we don't want people to think of us like this or that it's not about people. It is about Allah. It is a way to please Him.
So why miss out on this bigger award by just thinking about people, other people, because it's not worth it. What can they say? What what kind of reward can they give you? They can only say you're a good Muslim that said, how is it going to how's it going to help you in any way? So inshallah keep a check on your intention and fast only for Allah. Next point, don't leave a fast without a genuine excuse. inshallah some other way we can talk about the excuses, though the ones they can be genuine as well. Also abstain from all the nullifiers anything which can nullify your fast, protect your eyes, protect your years, protect her tongue, don't say anything wrong, don't hear anything wrong,
and don't watch anything wrong. And also rejoice be happy because you are fulfilling an obligation. And Allah gave you a trophy to do that many people they want to fast but they're not able to pass. So May Allah enable us to do that. I really really love this Halley's wanted to
Hear that you still have a minute so let's do that
there is a hadith which talks about if there's a person in the grave and he's a shrewdly, he's a true believer, his prayers will be positioned at his head, try to imagine it is aka on his right side is fasting on his left side, and the remainder of his good deeds will be towards his legs. So like charity, joint ties of kinship, good treatment of other people by his legs, punishment will try to approach this person from every side from every direction and each of those deeds will state you have no means of access here Access Denied so May Allah enable us to benefit from our goodies like that and we don't waste them so we should make the our
so we should make the offer for you know protection of our deeds, not just try to do a lot of good deeds that's great, but also try to protect them by not showing off and on but by not bragging and boasting about them. So May Allah enable us to protect our deeds May Allah forgive us and May Allah enable us to make the most of this month as well okay and because he has a panic alone while behind the eye shadow Allah you know, in the under a selfie recover it really SLM already can work much better cut.
Long, long, long.

she had been earth I mean said, that have the greatest means of the correctness of the heart, and its soundness is the excessive recitation of the Quran. Because the recitation of the Quran softens the heart and also increases the heart in firmness. Specifically, when a person recites it with contemplation and recites it while being aware of the fact that it is the speech of Allah, and he recites it. While he believes in the truth of its news, and he recites it while he adheres to its commands and leaves its prohibitions, then it can be expected that he will acquire a lot of good through this Quran. May Allah subhanaw taala enable us that as we go through juice after juice, we
increase in our understanding, in our ability to contemplate in our ability to recognize the commands of Allah subhanaw taala and to also act upon them, so that our hearts may be sound. And also we may have a stiff karma, we may have correctness and stability in our religion. I mean,
just number 11
Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, Allah subhanaw taala says yarda the Runa la can either la Jara to LA him, Allah tartufi Rue la nuit Mina la Combe but in a baton, Allah hoomin berekum wasa your Allahu Allah Kumara Zulu. So Mathura Duna Illa Allah mill AB was Shahada for Yuna bukom Bhima quantum Tama loon, they will make excuses to you, when you have returned to them. Say, make no excuse never will we believe you. Allah has already informed us of your news. And Allah will observe your deeds and so will His Messenger. Then you will be taken back to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, and he will inform you have what you used to do. These verses were revealed on the return from the
expedition have to book remember that the expedition of the book was truly a test of faith. Not only was the journey long, but the enemy was also far more dangerous than the than what the Muslims had encountered thus far. It was at a time when people were finally taking their life easy after the conquest of Makkah, and it was also harvest time. This is the occasion
Where abubaker I'll do Longhorn, who brought all of his property to support the expedition and remodel de la hora and who brought half of it. Many companions worked hard to earn money and to contribute or support themselves on this journey, and those who couldn't afford, they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to provide him to provide them mounts. And initially, when they were refused, they returned with tears, as we learned in the concluding verses of just 10. So where the sincerity and eagerness of the believers was very visible, the hypocrites also explored also exposed their true colors. Some of them made excuses, and some didn't. We see that an army of 10,000
Muslims left for to book marching 600 kilometers, in which 18 people would share one camel. And remember that in the book, there was actually no battle because when the other fan tribes who were the allies of the Romans learned that the Muslims had come all the way to fight, they resorted to just making peace, so there wasn't any battle. So the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said, I'm then returned, and the round trip was 50 days. So on the return journey, these verses were revealed, that when you will go back than the people who did not come along with you. Some of them will come to offer excuses, false excuses in apology simply to appease you. But the thing is, that words alone
are never enough to please someone. This is why it is said, say, Make no excuse, never will we believe you, meaning we will never believe your lies, we will never affirm them. Why? Because Allah has already informed us of your news. And Allah's Word is true, so we won't believe you. And there is no need to present these lies. And now Allah will observe your deeds, and so will His Messenger, meaning in this life, the actions of a person prove their honesty or their dishonesty, then you will be taken back to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed. Meaning you will return to Allah after you depart from this world, and from Allah, nothing at all is hidden. And he will inform you of what
you used to do, meaning the reality of your deeds, the words of your deeds, whether there were sincere or not, and what reward or punishment they deserve, all of that will be informed to you. So the fact is that a person's actions, their reality is exposed sooner or later, once a year, Allahu armella calm will rasuluh, the messenger will see in this life, meaning your actions will become clear to people. And this is why we see that even if a person tries to cover up their lies, with excuses, you know, they try to cover up their their faults with lies with excuses with pretense, their reality becomes exposed. And this is why instead of focusing on our external image before
people, we need to make amends on the inside that Who are we really, why are we striving? And who is it that we are trying to please how are we in private? And how are we in public, we look at ourselves in the mirror, and make sure that our physical appearance is good before people. But we also need to look inward, we need to introspect so that we can correct ourselves. Because remember, Allah does not look towards your faces, your physical appearances, nor does he look towards your deeds, but he looks at your hearts and your actions. So a person's good image, their reputation, their good name, will not aid them before Allah subhanaw taala because on the Day of Judgment, the
truth is going to be exposed. We learned in a long holidays, that how on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will call a person and he will say also, and so did I not honor you and make you the chief and provide you a spouse and subdue for you horses, camels, and gave you an opportunity to rule over your subjects? And the person will say yes, and then the person will be asked, Did you not think that you would meet me? And he will say no. So Allah will say, well, we forget you as you forgot us. And then the same question will be asked by another person. And he will say that, oh, my Lord, I affirmed my faith in you and in your book and in your messenger, and I observed prayer and
fasts and I give charity and He will speak in good terms like this, as he would be able to, and Allah will say, well, we will bring your witnesses against you. And the man will think in his mind, that who will bear witness against me, and then his mouth will be sealed and it will be set to his thighs, to his flesh and to his bones.
To speak, and so his thighs, his flesh, his bones will bear witness against him. And so why, because then he will not be able to make any excuses for himself verbally. And in the Hadith that has mentioned that this is the person who will be a hypocrite, and Allah will be annoyed with him. Because very often, we use our words to cover our deficiencies, but before Allah subhanaw taala, we will not be able to do that. They will swear by Allah to you, when you return to them, that you would leave them alone, meaning they make excuses so that you don't get upset with them. You don't reprimand them. So you know what, leave them alone. Don't reprimand them. Why? Because in the
homebridge indeed, they're evil, they're impure inwardly, so don't waste your time with them, and their refuges hell as recompense for what they had been earning. We see that a times someone's lies are very obvious. Any, you catch them red handed, but they still come up with a sob story of their innocence, crying crocodile tears. So how are you supposed to respond? Sometimes it is your own children who lie to you. Sometimes there's infidelity in marriage, and that is covered up with lies and tears, and such lies hurt the most. So one way is that you accuse them, you humiliate them, you prove them wrong, and you insult them and you threaten them. But what is the outcome? The outcome is
anger and fighting and abuse and the complete destruction of the relationship. But if you turn away from them, where you neither accept their lies, nor do you deny what they're saying, because they're using the name of Allah to defend themselves, then ignoring them, turning away from them is better. Neither say, Okay, I believe you, or I forgive you, nor be harsh with them, but simply turn away from them. Be silent over there, because you know what? argumentation and discussion helps when the other party is willing to acknowledge their mistake. But when the other party is not even willing to acknowledge their mistake, they're just lying with bigger lies one after the other, then why should
you waste your time with such people. So the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sentiment, the believers are told that when these people come and lie to you, then just turn away from them. Usually foreigner come later on home, they swear to you, so that you might be satisfied with them, meaning they just want you to be happy with them. And this is also from hypocrisy, that a person is obsessed with pleasing people. A person is obsessed with looking good in the eyes of people, they have no fear, no shame before Allah subhanaw taala but they have a lot of fear and a lot of shame before people. So it is said, but if you should be, but if you should be satisfied with them. Indeed, Allah is not
satisfied with the defiantly disobedient people. So the fact is, that even if we managed to please people with lies, and to face sadness, even if people don't find out about our betrayal, the fact is that Allah subhanaw taala knows, and Allah does not approve of such lies. So how could a person ever be successful? I will say, though, that he said that during the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. Some people among the hypocrites used to remain behind when he went out for a battle, and then they would be pleased to stay at home behind the Messenger of Allah. And when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu where it is and returned, they will put forward false excuses. And they will take
oaths, wishing to be praised for what they had not done. So you see, there are people who will lie at you at your face, they will lie to you at your face. And there are people who will backstab you who are very good at putting multiple masks on, they will be so good in front of you. They will come to you as your best friend as your advisor, but behind you, they're out to harm you, sometimes inciting your own friends and family, your own spouse and children against you. They don't come at you openly as enemies because of the benefits that they received from you. But they try to harm you from behind your back. We see that use of a salon. It was not the wolves who killed him. It was his
own brothers who tried to kill him who got rid of him. So we see that our times there are people who will pretend to be very nice to you. But in reality, they are your real enemies. There are people who will pretend piety before others, they will have these you know they will display fake you know religiosity superficial this
displays of religiosity that Oh, I'm so bad and other expressions and such pretense, remember is not pleasing to Allah lies do not please people lies are not acceptable near Allah and fake fake displays of religiosity are also not accepted by Allah. So, this is why it is necessary that we leave our sins and we stop covering our mistakes with lies. So, a person should always give preference to the approval of Allah subhanaw taala over the approval of people, our ultimate goal should not be to please people, that they should be happy with me, no, it should be to gain the approval of Allah subhanaw taala let us be more concerned about our image before people before Allah
subhanaw taala let us be more concerned about our image before Allah subhanaw taala then our image before people, so always consider when you do something, when you say something, whether it is to cover up a mistake, or it is to, you know, present an excuse that is this something that my Lord would accept? Would Allah approve this behavior of mine? And what is the benefit of pleasing? You know, people when Allah subhanaw taala is not pleased with us. We learn in the Hadees that whoever seeks Allah's pleasure by the people's wrath, then Allah who will suffice him from the people and whoever seeks the people's pleasure, by Allah's wrath, then Allah will entrust him to the people
Subhan Allah. This this is also shows us that if Allah does not approve of the fasciae clean of those who are defiantly disobedient, then we should also not approve of their sins, meaning never approve the crimes and the wrong actions of people. It doesn't mean that you you that you turn violent against them. It means that you don't accept what is wrong. You don't call what is wrong, right are arrabal Asha Dooku from when he fell call, the Bedouins are stronger in disbelief and hypocrisy. And more likely to know and more likely to not know the limits of what laws Allah has revealed to His Messenger. And Allah is Knowing and wise. Now, this is not a bias against people who
live in rural areas. But the thing is that the people who live in the desert, especially at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it meant that they were far from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, it meant that they had less access to him, and therefore less awareness. So we see that being distant from the Quran, being distant from the sooner means that a person will be ignorant, or he will forget what he wants knew. And that lack of knowledge, lack of action, lack of good company, is something that can create hypocrisy in a person, we've seen a Hades the two things will never be together in a hip in a hypocrite, good manners, and the understanding of the religion.
And we see that the that the Bedouins because they lived far from communities, meaning they lived mostly on their own. So we see that being disconnected from people, this is also something that is detrimental, because people hold you responsible, and they also keep you humble. So we see that studying the religion and healthy social interaction, whether it is in a religious setting, or worldly setting, any it is something that human beings are in need off. And we see that there's a kind of softness and courtesy in the people who have knowledge, whether it is worldly or religious knowledge, and there's a kind of crudeness and harshness in the people who have not disciplined
themselves with study. So we see that it is not enough to just study on our own even by reading books, or doing Google researches, it is essential that we discipline ourselves by being in the company of the people of knowledge, by learning from scholars by attending the gatherings of knowledge. And among the Bedouins are some who consider what they spend as a loss. Why? Because they don't understand. They don't have that awareness, that knowledge that when you spend Something in the way of Allah, then it is greatly rewardable and because of that, when they have to spend when they have to give the cat, they think that it is a fine, and they await for you turns of misfortune
upon them will be a misfortune of evil, and Allah is hearing and knowing. But we see that all Bedouins all village dwellers are not the same. So it is said but among the Bedouins are some who believe in Allah. Wa meenal Arabi my umino Billa he will Yeoman. They believe in Allah and
In the last day, and they consider what they spend as means of nearness to Allah Go to Bat in or in the law and of obtaining invocations of the messenger sallallahu Urdu he was on them, because when someone would bring charity to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, then he would make the offer them, unquestionably it is a means of nearness for them, Allah will admit them to His mercy. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. So we see that people, individuals are unique, everyone is not the same. So in any case, it is not correct to stereotype. But since we see in these verses that our environment, it has an impact on our behavior. So it is important to recognize ourselves, certain
individuals, they thrive when they're disconnected from people, they become more productive, they become more devoted and sincere in their worship. But such people are few majority of the people need social connection, they need a good environment, or else they begin to slip. So recognize who you are. Even Massoud radula horn who said that whoever has three things in him, Allah will fill his heart with Iman, what three things companionship of a scholar, recitation of the Quran, and fasting. So we see that there are among the Bedouins, who live far from the city, who are not prone to hypocrisy. So all of them are not the same. There are people who are different. So it is important
to recognize what is it that is best for your email, which situation which environment is best for the growth and for the increase of your email? Then we seen this idea that there are those among them who spend in charity, why as a means of drawing close to Allah. And the fact is that sadaqa is a means of drawing close to Allah. Why? Because when you spend for the sake of Allah, and you remind yourself, you know what, this is money that I love, this is money that I'd rather spend on myself, but I will spend this to make Allah pleased with me. Then instantly, any this person is trying to make a connection with Allah. And when a person takes one step towards Allah, Allah takes 10 steps
towards them. So when a person gives other COVID sincerity, then definitely it is globat it is something that will connect them that will bring them closer to Allah subhanaw taala. So anytime that you're feeling distant from Allah, then give sadaqa remind yourself that you know what this I'm giving to please Allah and you will feel closer to Allah. And then we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his way was that whenever somebody brought charity, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said and made the offer them, or the Leben ob opha said that the Prophet sallallahu or his son would say Allah Houma Sunday Allah early fool on that, Oh Allah bless, send your
blessings on the family of so and so. So, even Abby opha said that when he brought up at one point the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh Allah, send your blessings upon the offspring on the family off, even off of Abu opha meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed for the entire family, not just the individual. So we see that when a person gives sadaqa then their entire family benefits. And if you think about it, would the draw of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not be a means of drawing close to Allah? Of course it would be. So this teaches us that if someone gives you sadaqa or is a cat, why in order that you give it to the poor on their behalf,
then you shouldn't just say okay, I'll do this for you. No, you should also make door offer them like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed for the people who brought charity Why should you make the offer them? Because remember, the supplication of a brother is answered meaning when you have a brother in Islam for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and you may draw for them then that da is answered. So make draw for your friends for your friends in faith who are doing good things don't just praise them at their face that more oh wow Mashallah. This is so good. Now also make the offer them that may Allah bless you barakallahu li calm.
And then we see that here, Allah in the hacker betula home Cejudo, hello Humala. houfy rush Mati, look at the benefit Allah who will admit them into his mercy. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful was savvy Kunal aware Luna meenal mahadji Rena will onsolve and the first four runners in the faith among the more hygiene and the unsolved and those who followed them when levena terbaru, whom BSN those who followed them till the Day of Judgment, how with good conduct
rhodiola horn home what a Lutheran, Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with him. And he has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow were in they will abide forever. That is the great attainment. So we seen this idea that was sabich, Kunal away alone. And then who is mentioned when levena terbaru when BSN. So the first categories of the people who are the first four runners in faith, meaning they're ahead, and then there are those who follow them. So who is it that we should follow? We should follow those who are ahead of us, not those who are slow and lazy in terms of obeying Allah subhanaw taala and of course, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam who were the Sabbath comb the first foreigners in Islam. They are an excellent example for us, so we should follow them. But how should we follow them with sand when Ludhiana? terbaru hoon BSN. So we see that Allah is pleased with the sabya Koon even though we see that the quality of your sand is not mentioned over here for them. So the companions are an excellent example. But the people after them, whether it is the scholars, or it is the pious, they're only worthy of being followed in their Isaan. Meaning when they do good, then you take the example of their goodness, and that is what you follow. And what does it mean to follow the companions with ersan it means that we believe
as they did, that we do good as they did that we follow them in word and inactions. And then we follow the Quran and Sunnah as they did, because slit altar levina, a naantali him we want the path of those whom Allah subhanaw taala bestowed favor upon, and he indeed bestowed his favor upon them, because it is mentioned here that early Allah who are in whom what I'll do on Allah will be pleased with them, and they will be pleased with Allah. So if we want to Allah to be pleased with us, then we have to do with the companions did. And among those around you of the Bedouins are hypocrites, and also from the people of Medina, they have become accustomed to hypocrisy. So panela there are
some people who become experts when it comes to deception, when it comes to tricking other people and lying, and, you know, harming other people, they become experts in that you, oh, Prophet do not know them. Why? Because they're so good at hiding their reality. They're so good at their hypocrisy, but we know them. And the fact is that Allah knows the real state of the hearts of people, we will punish them twice, how once in the grave, and then second, on the day of judgment, then they will be returned to a great punishment. So the thing is that a person who is trying to hide their hypocrisy, who was trying to hide their true face from people, they don't just attempt to once but they attempt
over and over again, there is one lie, and then another lie, and then another story, and then another, you know, act of treachery. So because their crime is repeated, this is the reason why the punishment will also be repeated. What are Haruna thora forbiden ob him, and there are others who have acknowledged their sins, meaning they have come and confessed, they had mixed a righteous deed with another that was bad, meaning they're still struggling, perhaps Allah will turn to them in forgiveness because they're still trying. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving, and merciful. So when they repent, Allah will also be merciful towards them. So this shows us that if we want the forgiveness
and mercy of Allah subhanaw taala, then we have to make an actual change. A change of heart is good, but a change in the external in the actions is also necessary. What kind of actions should we do, especially charity sadaqa, because remember, sadaqa, especially sadaqa to sit, private charity that you give in secrecy, this is something that cools that calms the anger of the Lord, hold them in unworthy him. So the cotton, take a profit from their wealth, a charity by which you purify them and cause them increase to a hero home. What was the key him be her,
meaning this charity will purify them and it will increase them, it will increase them in their ranks, it will take them out of hypocrisy. It will take them to word sincere faith. So we see that hypocrisy is actually removed with righteous action, especially sadaqa was suddenly I lay him and invoke Allah's blessings upon them, indeed your invocations or reassurance for them, and Allah is hearing and knowing the fact is that sadaqa
Certainly purifies how it purifies a person's property. And it also purifies the soul of the person, it also cleans the record of a person, we see that for example, does the cat The cat actually means purification? Why? Because it purifies the wealth and it causes it to grow. And this is the reason why at the end of Ramadan, on greed, what do we have to give we have to give so the cotton filter? Why do we give so the cotton fitter? Why do we give charity on the day of read, we learn in the holidays, because it is to not only saw him, it is a means of purification for the fasting person, because every person who fasts any, we can never claim that our fast was perfect. We do things that
are useless, we get angry, we certainly sometimes, you know, say things that are inappropriate, because we're human. So this is why subtle call on the Dave read, what does it do? It purifies any, you know, mistake that a person did over the course of the month while a person was fasting. So we see in this idea that sadaqa certainly purifies a person, and it purifies a person, meaning their wealth, and also their their heart. And it also is a means of growth for them. I bring some out of hypocrisy, we see that the prayer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was truly comforting for the companions, when someone makes the offer you you feel so happy, right? You feel so good. Now
imagine if the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is the one making the offer his companions and we see so many examples where the Prophet salallahu Urdu center would pray for blessing in their wealth. And in order to receive his draw, they would be encouraged to give even better things in charity. So in the Salah, Taka second Allah home, when you see that someone is struggling in their faith, then yes, you encourage them to do good deeds, but you also make the offer them because when they find out that you're making the offer them, then they also feel encouraged, they feel happy. Do they not know that it is Allah who accepts repentance from his servants, meaning they should be hopeful, they
should not despair? Why acordo sada called and he receives charities. So even after sinning, if a person does good, give subtle call to compensate for his sin, that Allah subhanaw taala accepts that what anila who has doubled Rahim and that it is Allah, Who is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful wakulla Melo and say, Do as you will, for Allah will see your deeds and and so will His Messenger and the believers and you will be returned to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed and he will inform you of what you use to do. So your words are not enough. Now, your deeds are also important, what a Haruna Maru giovanelli amarilla. And there are others deferred until the command
of Allah, meaning their case is pending, whether he will punish them or whether he will forgive them and Allah is Knowing and wise. So we see that there were different types of people amongst the amongst those who around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there were those who were sincere, who yes made a mistake, but then they came out clean, they apologized. And then there were those who lied to cover up their mistakes, who tried to please the Prophet sallallahu or do something with their lies, and then there were those whose matter was deferred. It was postponed until later and we will learn about that in the coming verses. And then there are those hypocrites who took for
themselves a mask will Latina to hadoo Masjid and later on, they made a mask why in order to cause harm, they built a Masjid to harm the religion in the guise of piety. You see, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was heading to the book, the hypocrites made a mosque and they said they made the excuse that you know some people are old and sick and they cannot reach must youth Koba. So we want to make our own over here. And the purpose was to actually make it as headquarters for planning their attacks on the Muslims. And they wanted to ensure that no one would be suspicious of them. So this is why they said it's a Masjid. So the objective of the so called Masjid was not to
facilitate worship, but it was to cause harm to the Muslims. So yes, there are people who are actually wolves, but they come in the guise of friends and for disbelief, meeting instead of worshipping Allah, what did they want to do in the in that so called mosque, they wanted to engage in sinful actions over there, and also to create division among the believers because they've they've made a Masjid in parallel to Masjid Koba and as a station for whoever had Ward against Allah
messenger before this was a barometer of raw Him, who was a man from Medina. But after the Prophet sallallahu wasallam came, this man was so angry that he left for Makkah. He joined the mushy cane, and he urged them to fight the Muslims. And now he was working with these hypocrites to harm the Muslims again. And we see that now his plans failed. And eventually he went towards Rome, to incite them against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but he died on the journey, and they will surely swear we intended only the best. And Allah testifies that indeed they're liars. We see that they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to come and pray in that so called Masjid. So the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that on my return from to book, I will pray over there, but Allah subhanaw taala revealed these verses to His Messenger, that you are not going to go there. So it is said do not stand within it ever. a mosque that is founded on piety unrighteousness from the first day and this is referring to the masjid of Masjid Koba, that is more worthy for you to stand in. within it are men who love to purify themselves and Allah loves those who purify themselves. Subhana Allah, this is so amazing mustard kooba was built on the core of Allah, it was constructed so that people would worship Allah subhanaw taala It was built with sincerity. And Allah subhanaw
taala praises the people who, who attended mustard Koba. And what is the specific prayers, that they clean themselves, the purify themselves, remember that purification is needed, not just on the external, in our limbs that we clean our bodies, purification is also needed in the heart, that our intentions must be sincere. And this is what Allah subhanaw taala is praising these people for that they they purify themselves, they clean themselves. And the thing is that a person who is concerned about purifying themselves, no, they don't like filth, it's it's a, it's a lifestyle. They don't like filth, they don't like bad smells, whether it is in the mouth, or it is on the body, or it
isn't the clothes, or it is in the heart. So we should be concerned about cleaning ourselves at all of these levels. We see that the people of Cuba, they were asked that How come you were praised in this way? What is it that you do and they said that we clean ourselves on using the bathroom. Remember that there are three ways of you know cleaning one's private part after using the bathroom one way is that you just use you know stones or something dry, like toilet paper to remove the filth completely. And if you manage to remove the filth completely, with something like this, it is permissible This is called is the Jamal but then there's a better way which is his Ninja, which is
to wash with water. And then there is another way, which is to do is to Jamal and his Ninja, which is to wipe thoroughly and then wash thoroughly. And this is what the people of Cuba will do. Remember that at that time, water was scarce, it was not as easily available as it is for many of us today. So the people of Cuba at times will go to great lengths in order to make sure that they were completely clean. And this is something that earned them the love of Allah subhanaw taala You know, sometimes, especially when we're fasting, we have to exert a lot of effort to make sure that our mouth is clean. You know, you don't just brush your teeth in the morning in the evening, but you do
miss work, you know, you floss your teeth, you go to great lengths over and over again. And sometimes this can feel very burdensome, but don't get annoyed by this because moto pi macba herein are those who purify themselves. So when a person is constantly exerting effort to clean themselves, whether it is their heart, or it is their body, or it is their you know their their, you know mouse, Allah subhanaw taala likes this effort. And this is effort that will be rewarded by Allah. Allah who you Hey Boone, mata hearin Allah loves those who purify themselves. We see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there are five acts which conformed to the pure fitrah
circumcision, removing of the pubic hair, clipping the nails, plucking the underarm hair and trimming the moustache soprano Allah, our religion guides us to such basic things as well. Because when you when you clean your body, then this is something that makes you use to cleanliness, and then you are not okay with a corrupt intention, then a corrupt intention will bother you, then you will purify your heart as well. That as soon as a feeling of Ria comes about in the heart of showing off comes about in the heart you say are the biller? No, I'm not doing this for the people. I'm doing this for Allah. Then it is said then is one who laid the foundation of his building on
Out of fear of Allah and seeking his approval better, or one who laid the foundation of his building on the edge of a bank about to collapse. So it collapsed with him into the fire of hell look at the contrast between must have Koba and must have draw, one was built on piety and the other is built at the edge of a cliff, which one is going to last which one is going to make it to the hereafter and which one is going to going to end up in hell. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing, people, their building, which they built will not cease to be a cause of skepticism in their hearts until their hearts are stopped. And Allah is Knowing and wise, meaning they will continue to be in doubt,
until they leave this world. So we see that the external of a righteous action will not benefit a person until the foundation is also sincere. A small deed if it is done with sincerity, it can save a person from hell. This is why we are told that it cannot fear that save yourself from the fire even if it is with half of a date.
something so small can save you if it's done with sincerity, and a big deed like huge sadhaka Jihad with corrupt intention, it can become a cause for falling in hellfire. We see that in a Hadees we learned that there are three kinds of people who recite the Quran, there is the believer, there's the hypocrite, and there's the fathered the sinful. So one of the narratives he asked his his teacher that Who are these three. So he explained that the hypocrite denies it, meaning yes, even though he's reciting it in his heart, he actually denies it. He listens to it, okay, he's learning about it. But in his heart, he's denying it, there's no emotion in the heart, the wicked eats by it,
meaning the sinful person only uses the Quran to his advantage, so that he can get some material benefit out of it. And the believer believes in it. So based on the intention will be the result, we see that on the Day of Judgment, a person will be called. And he will say that you that you know what I did? Yeah, I learned the book of Allah, I recited it. And Allah will say to him that you're lying, you did it so that you were called a reciter. If potty and you were called a potty, you got your result in the dunya, your your reward in the dunya. And now there's nothing for you. So he will be thrown in hell. So we should not just be concerned about the outward aspect of our actions, we
need to look at the intention, and we need to purify it again. And again, you know, just as you purify your body again and again, you clean your mouth again and again. You need to clean your heart again and again also. Then it is said in the law hasta la mina Mina and foster home while I'm while at home, be another homeowner, Jana, Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers, their lives and their properties. In exchange for that they will have paradise, meaning their life is for Allah, they have sold their lives and their wealth, their properties to Allah. This means that they don't live as they desire. But they live in a way that would please Allah subhanaw taala. At times, we
fall into great deception. We think that the goal of life is to be happy. So do what pleases you live in a way that makes you happy. But the fact is that we were not created to worship our desire, we were not created to pursue our passions, we were created to worship Allah. So the believers, they have sold their lives and their properties to Allah. So now it is not about what they wish. It is all about what Allah wishes. And this is why they fight in the cause of Allah. So they kill and are killed. It is a true promise binding upon him in the Torah and the Injeel and the Quran, and who is truer to his covenant than Allah. So rejoice in your transaction which you have contracted, and it
is that which is the great attainment, this contract that you have made rejoice over it, because this is going to bring you great success. What an honorable contract This is, look at who the buyer is, it is Allah subhanaw taala look at what is being bought. It is the best that people have their life and their property. Look at what is being given in exchange. Jenna, look at look at where this transaction is recorded. It is recorded in the Quran in the Torah and the Injeel. In Revelation, look at the witness to this trade to this contract. It is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So could there be any doubt about the benefit of this contract? The value of this contract were done
early he helped call the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the silat Allah He
La Jolla in facilita. La he and Jenna know that the bargain with Allah is very expensive. It is very precious. It is Jenna. So remember genma is not cheap, it is not for free. The area of Jannah that is covered by a whip is far better than the world and whatever that is in it. But still, our deeds and sacrifices are not enough to buy Jana huid because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said none can enter Paradise through his good deeds. So it is only his favor that he is giving us a chance to earn something huge with the little that we have. So value your life and use your wealth in good causes. So that you can get Jenna in return from Allah soprano Tada. So, what are the terms
and conditions for this bargain? It was mentioned earlier that such people fight in the way of Allah. But this is not always possible for everybody. So now what a boon Allah be doing such believers are attack a boon, the repentant attack, a boon is a noun, it is not a verb, meaning there are those who there are people who have been actually repent. They're always repenting from all sins, leaving their sins, big ones and small ones, asking Allah for forgiveness at all times out of fear that this contract might get cancelled, it might get nullified.
We learn in our heads that every child of Adam ers and the best of those who err are those who seek forgiveness. So it begins with a, a boon, those who repent, because whenever you think about Jenna, whenever you think about the rewards that Allah subhanaw taala has promised, when you think about the higher levels of success, you think, oh, but I'm not worthy of that. Yes, we're not worthy of that, because our deeds are not perfect. Our sins are many, this is why utter a boon, those who repent. And then Allah be doing those who worship the worshipers who are consistent in servitude to Allah subhanaw taala, performing what is due on them, whether it is wedgie bath obligations, or the
recommended acts of worship, whether it is Salah, or pm, or the recitation of Quran or reflection upon it, remembrance of Allah, you need, they're always in a state of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala whether things are easy, or they're hard, whether they're at home, or they're traveling, alabi Dune, and how many Dune The praiser is of Allah, meaning there are those who are grateful. They're grateful to Allah in ease and in hardship and hamdu lillahi Allah coolly hurl All Praise to Allah in every situation, and only Hamad can do this, who is a Hammad a person who consistently praises and thanks Allah. Why, because he is able to see the blessings of Allah and appreciate the blessings of
Allah, such a person is able to acknowledge the apparent blessings and the hidden blessings. So he praises Allah for Allah's favors, they do hand in the heart, on their tongues, in conversation during the day, and during the night when things are easy, and when things are tough. And how many doon a sir at home, the travelers meaning those who travel not for the gram so that they can take all those fancy pictures and post them No, a say home those who travel for the sake of Allah. And what is that this is traveling in order to seek knowledge in order to strive in the way of Allah, for example, Hajj and Umrah in order to meet relatives, because remember, when you meet your
relatives, and yes, it can be very expensive at times. But when you travel to meet your relatives, so that you can be good to them. You can join relationships, then this is also traveling for the sake of Allah and every dollar that you spend. Remember, it did not go waste. It is not a waste when you travel for the sake of Allah than that journey is rewardable traveling for Dawa, to call people to Allah traveling to see the wonders of Allah's creation, traveling to earn a lawful income at home, meaning they're not just living in their comfort in their homes, they go out for the cause of Allah to earn Allah's approval or a salary home also means those who fast and those who fast
consistently are luckier own those who bow, a Sergi. Dune and those who prostrates meaning they make such the in prayer and this means that they pray a lot because record and such the can only be done a lot when a person prays a lot. Think about it in just to knock our Salah right there.
Our total course and for such this, so unlock your own a saggi Dune, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when a servant stands for prayer, he comes with his sins, and they're placed on his shoulders. So each time that he does recor or sujood, his sins fall from him. His sins fall from him so unburden yourself, and in the month of Ramadan, especially when it comes to the night prayer, when it comes to throw away, or it comes to PMO lay, then don't be lazy in that, that don't be lazy in that every tool rocker encourage yourself that I want to be among a rock your own a saggi Dune, because Salah is not a burden. Yes, it can be physically tiring. But just as you know, honey is
sweet on the tongue. Worship is sweet in the heart, even though it can be difficult on the lens. You know, for example, if you put honey in your eyes, it will stink, it will burn. But when you eat it, it's so delicious. And just like that worship, it can be very hard on the body, very painful, but there's a certain joy and a certain, you know, pleasure that you experience in the hearts which can only be there by worship. So record and such that are mentioned over here, even though they're part of arriba But this shows us that they do a lot of record a lot of subs. Um, your honor Bill maroof, those who enjoy what is right one now who not in one call, and they forbid what is wrong, because
what is worth believing? What is worth having, what is worth doing is worth sharing, will have your lunula How do they learn and those who observe the limits set by Allah, meaning they do not fall into what is unlawful, but wherever Allah has stopped them, meaning Allah has set a boundary, then they stop over there. So for example, now it is time to stop eating, stop eating. Now it is time to break your fast so now start eating. Well have you lonely? How do they love, they respect and guard the boundaries that Allah has set, whether it is with regards to speech, or it is with regard to food and drink or relationships or actions. And he wants to know the huddled, they respect them.
What does she mean, and give good tidings to the believers, that when they will do this, Allah will fulfill his promise to them, Allah will give them Jenna and remember, Allah's promises true, he doesn't go against it, nor is he weak to fulfill it. So sometimes, it is true that these actions can be hard on the knifes, but be glad, don't be sad. It is not for the Prophet, and those who have believed to ask forgiveness for the polytheists, even if they were relatives, after it has become clear to them, that they're companions of the Fire. And the request of forgiveness of Ibrahim for his father was only because of a promise he had made to him. But when it became apparent to Ibrahim,
that his father was an enemy to Allah, because he died in that disbelief, then he dissociated himself from him, indeed, was Ibrahim compassion, compassionate, and patient, meaning he was very sincere towards all. So we see here that as long as a non Muslim, whether their relative or friend, as long as they're alive, you pray for them, and you must pray for them. So that Allah subhanaw taala guides them, Allah subhanaw taala opens the doors of blessings upon them, so that they're led towards guidance. But once they die upon that disbelief, then it is not permissible for us to seek forgiveness for them. And this is where we have to align our preferences, our love with the
preferences of Allah subhanaw taala in a Hadees we learned that whoever gives for the sake of Allah withholds for the sake of Allah loves for the sake of Allah and also dislikes for the sake of Allah and even gets married for the sake of Allah, then such a person has perfected their Amen.
And Allah would not let people stray after he has guided them, until he makes clear to them what they should avoid. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of all things. This is Allah's guidance and mercy. Indeed, to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He gives life and causes death. And you have not besides Allah, any protector or any helper, Lakota, Allah Who are the newbie he will mahadji Lena will ansara Allah has already forgiven the Prophet, and the mohajir Dean, and the unsolved, who are they? And Medina tuber roofie sir Theodoros saw those who followed the Prophet sallallahu earlier sanlam in the hour of difficulty psara to eurosla. This was the book this army
was called j Xu Ursa, because this was truly a very difficult journey. You see, doing good things, performing good deeds, when things are easy when a person is healthy, when there's wealth when there's security, that is understandable. And yes Mashallah. It is excellent that up
person, you know, gives charity that a person prays that a person, you know, supports good causes that is really good. But when things are tough, really tough and tough, not just in one aspect of life, but in every aspect.
So for example, a person struggling financially or physically or socially, and this is something that we can relate with very well these days because of the current pandemic, in a time like this, supporting a good cause, that a person is not just selfishly looking out for themselves, but they're also concerned about others, and especially the religion of Allah, then this is a proof of their honesty, this is a proof of their commitment. So the companions there prove their commitment. And what happened, Allah subhanaw taala, pardoned them, Allah subhana wa tada forgave them. Especially this was at a time that after the hearts of a party of them had almost inclined to doubt meaning
there were some people who almost did not go, but they still went forth. So initially, there was hesitation, but then they went, so matabele him and then he forgave them. Why? Because they did not listen to their enough's. They still strove hard, and they obeyed Allah Subhana tada in the hooba hemraj. All for Rahim. Indeed, he was to them kind and merciful. So it is very important for us that we don't just do good things, when they're convenient, we should do what is right, we should do what is good. Even if at times it is difficult for us it is difficult on Linux. So we should obey Allah, we should do good, despite our personal difficulty. And you know what, very soon in sha Allah with
the help of Allah, you will overcome that difficulty. If we all if we only obey the knifes the soul the desire, then we will sell ourselves short, we cannot accomplish much in our lives. It is said that when you think you're done only 40 sorry, it is said that when you think you are done, meaning when you think that you have reached your maximum potential, that you cannot work any harder. The fact is that you are only at 40% of what your body is capable of doing. Meaning you have the potential to go further. So most of the time, the fact is that we sell ourselves short. So it is necessary that we push ourselves that we that we go the extra mile, you know we we strive a little
bit and the help of Allah subhanaw taala will also come because for enamal or three Yusra Allah will not leave you in difficulty, he will give you ease also, then we see here that difficult circumstances are actually an opportunity, because there was sorry to Ursula an hour of difficulty, but it also brought about forgiveness and mercy from Allah subhanaw taala. So when things are tough, do what you can and expect the best outcome, expect the best reward from Allah subhanaw taala. Allah has not put you in hardship to make things difficult for you, but to increase you and your rewards, we learned in the Hadees that a person has a certain rank near Allah, meaning Allah subhanaw taala
wants them to reach a certain level. And that person cannot reach that level, just by their good work. So Allah subhanaw taala puts them in hardship in a test in a difficulty. So they experience something painful, and then there's a financial loss, and then they're sad news. And then there's fear, and then there's illness and one test after the other. And because of his patients, he reaches the reward, the level that Allah subhanaw taala wants him to reach, so do not despair, because no difficulty is permanent. For the believer, Allah subhanaw taala will grant him ease. And also remember that the person who remembers a lie in times of difficulty, then Allah Subhana, WA Tada.
will, will certainly bestow His forgiveness and mercy upon them, as we see in this is where I left the last 30 Latina holy foo, and he also forgave the three who were left behind, meaning their repentance was not immediately accepted, their matter was left behind it was deferred. And now eventually, their matter was decided. And what was the decision that Allah subhanaw taala pardoned them? Who are these people? These were three companions who remained behind from the expedition of Tobruk. They intended to go out, but they just delayed and they ended up missing the entire expedition. And this is something that happens with us also, we keep saying, you know what, maybe
tomorrow maybe tomorrow, we procrastinate, and then we know it is too late. So for example, it is only a few days into the month of Ramadan and some of us are still thinking, yes, I will recite the Quran tomorrow in Sharla. Tonight inshallah we keep the leg. Don't delay until you lose the opportunity. Because this is what happened with these companions. They kept delaying until
It was too late. They couldn't join the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when the Prophet salallahu artesan returned, we see that the hypocrites they came lying and taking false oaths. And there were some other people who didn't even bother to apologize. But these three companions, they went, and they admitted their fault. They didn't fly, they admitted that it was their own laziness, and that if they wanted, they could have pleased the prophets of Allah who were to send him with lies, but they knew that Allah would not be pleased. So what happened, their matter was deferred. To the point that it was over, it was 40 days. And in those 40 days, the companions were told to
boycott and completely, so no one would speak to them. And their state, their their condition is described over here, that they were left behind to the point that the earth closed in on them, in spite of its vastness, and their souls confined them. You see social distancing. This was social distancing in the real sense, because no one spoke to them. When they looked at the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, No, he wouldn't smile at them. Can you imagine? loneliness is something very difficult, social isolation, solid, solitary confinement, is actually a form of punishment. And they experienced that. And there were certain that there is no refuge from Allah, except in him. So
they held on, they didn't lie, then what happened? So matabele him Leah Tobu. He turned to them so that they could repent. Indeed, Allah is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful. The fact is that they understood that there is no place where a person can find shelter or security by running away from Allah. They were certain that there is no refuge from Allah except to Allah, we cannot run away from him. There is no getting upset with Allah. There's no avoiding Allah, we have to return to Allah. In every state of ours. In our heads we learn, Allah says, Oh, my servants, all of you are straight, except those whom I guide, so seek forgiveness of me, I shall see guidance of me I shall
guide you, all my servants, all of you are hungry, except those whom I feed, so seek food for me and I shall feed you, all my servants all of you are naked, except those whom I have clothed. So seek clothing from me and I shall clothe you, all my servants you commit sins by day and by night, and I forgive sins, so seek forgiveness from me and I shall forgive you. So don't turn away from Allah turn towards Allah. What is the lesson? Yeah, are you Hello, Dina amanu, or you will have believed it. duckula fear Allah will call tomorrow saw the pain and be with those who are righteous, garbled yellow horn who who was one of the three companions, he said himself that the greatest blessing of
Allah on me after Islam was a trophy, the ability to speak the truth, otherwise I too, would have been destroyed as others were destroyed because of their lying. He held on to the truth. Even though it was so hard. He stuck with the truthful even though they had boycotted him. But he did not join the side of the liars, even though he could lie. So no matter how hard it is, still speak the truth.
Then it is said it was not proper for the people of Medina, and those surrounding them of the Bedouins that they remain behind after the departure of the Messenger of Allah, or that they prefer themselves over his self. This is because they're not afflicted by thirst or fatigue or hunger in the cause of a law. Nor do they tread on any ground that enrages the disbelievers, nor do they inflict upon an enemy, any infliction, but that is registered for them as a righteous deed. Subhan Allah, indeed, in the law halaya the Euro I did on my city, Allah does not work does not allow to be lost the reward of the doers of good. Remember, the reward for a good deed begins from the moment
that a person intends to do it. We learn in the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in a comfy Salatin mantle to move you have been in prayer as long as you have been waiting for it. So as long as a person is so from the moment that a person intends to pray, and then they're waiting for it, it is as if they're in prayer, they're start receiving the reward of Sunnah. And the reward for every deed, we see is in proportion to the effort that you exert in it. There are some people Mashallah they fast, very easily, they have no problem. And then there are those who get hungry, they get headaches, Subhanallah It is so hard for them to fast. So we see this idea that for
every moment of thirst and fatigue and hunger and step that a person takes in the way of Allah, a good deed is recorded for them. What you spend in the WAV Allah, you're rewarded for that also the Prophet sallallahu where it is and I'm set to I shall deliver on her omura that there is reward
equal to your hardship and your spending, meaning whatever amount you spend for the demo. And whatever hardship you bear, whatever fatigue you experience, you will be rewarded for that. So remember, bearing difficulty in the way of Allah is not just an expiation of sins, it also brings reward. Now, this doesn't mean that we make worship difficult for ourselves on purpose. No, we should create ease for ourselves. But sometimes, despite every effort, things are hard. So those who do ersan, who consistently do good, they don't mind bearing hardship for the sake of Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala does not waste their reward. So there are times when a person is not able to
continue the good that they were doing before. Like, for example, a person used to go to the masjid in the month of Ramadan for every Salah regularly, even though it was so hard, but they made a point to go and now that they're not able to go in sha Allah, their reward is still being recorded. Why? Because in a Hadees, we learn that when a person is unwell when a servant is unwell, Allah subhanaw taala tells the angels that right for him the good deeds that he used to do, because because I know that when he will be released from his illness, he will continue meaning the only reason why he's not doing those good deeds right now is because of his inability. It's a temporary situation. So in
the law, hello al, they are added on worsening. And a person is rewarded for what they have been actually due for what they regularly do. We learned that when a person is sick, or they travel, then their reward for pm is written, which they would do when they were healthy and while they were at home. And remember that there was reward even for a good intention. So don't be stingy. Allah subhanaw taala is generous, be eager for those rewards, nor do they spend and expenditure small or large, or across a valley, but that it is registered for them that allowed me to reward them for the best of what they were doing. So we see that Allah accepts the deeds of his servants, the big and
the small ones were mccannon with me, noona Leon, Womack Cannell movimiento, Anna Lee and funeral calf and it is not for the believers to go forth to battle all at once. So we see that the book was an exceptional situation where everyone was required to go. But this is not General, meaning everyone is not required to go for every single battle. Why? Because for there should separate from every division of them a group remaining to obtain understanding and their religion and warn their people when they return to them, that they might be cautious Subhan Allah going out to learn, dedicating yourself to study the religion of Allah, and then teaching it to people. This is what is
being encouraged over here. We think the only way of striving in the way of Allah is to pick up weapons. But what is it that we learned in Hades, that opening up a book, sitting in front of a teacher studying, working hard in learning, taking those tests, studying like this? This is important, because just as people are needed to defend the borders, why so that communities are safe. We also need individuals to learn and teach sacred knowledge. Why for the spiritual safety of our communities, people need officers to guard them. And people also need religious scholars to teach them to help them learn. This is a need in every community. So we see that seeking religious
knowledge and then teaching it. This is something that is truly Noble. In a hadith we learn the two people were mentioned before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam One of them was a worshiper, and the other was a scholar to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the superiority of the scholar over the worshiper is like my superiority over the least of you. Can you imagine the difference between the prophets of Allah who were to send a man, an ordinary person from this oma, the least of this ummah, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Indeed Allah, His angels, the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth, even the end in its hole, and the fish, they
send blessings, they pray for the one who teaches the people to do good. So you see, one is that a person prays for himself? How much can he pray for himself? How much dog can you make for yourself? But the other is that when you benefit other people, when you teach them good things, now what's going to happen? So many people are also going to pray for you. So yes, make time for worship, but also make time to learn the religion and share this goodness. So remember, knowledge is not just something that we acquire, but we should also strengthen our knowledge.
And then pass on what we have learned. Otherwise, we are wasting ourselves. And it really does not befit a person to do that, we learned that the example of the one who learns knowledge, but then does not spread. It is like the one who hoard is like the one who hoards a treasure. Imagine a person who has a huge treasure, gold and silver, lots of money, but then he does not spend from it. What a loss, and he has so much money, and he's not spending from it. Neither is he investing it to increase in his knowledge, nor is he spending it on himself to, you know, make his life easy. So likewise, a person who has knowledge but then they don't teach it to others, then they're doing
themselves a disservice. They're selling themselves short. We learn that whoever teaches a verse of the book of Allah one, I have the Quran, he will receive its reward as long as it is recited, so be eager for this treasure, will you who have believed, find those adjacent to you of the disbelievers, and let them find a new harshness and know that Allah is with the righteous. And whenever a surah is revealed, there are among the hypocrites those who say, which of you has this increased in faith, meaning they make fun of the Quran, that didn't really make a difference. As for those who believed it has increased them in faith while they're rejoicing. But as for those whose hearts is disease, it
has only increased them in evil, in addition to their evil, meaning they don't benefit at all. They only get worse, and they will have died while they're disbelievers. So remember, the Quran increases the believers in their faith, and it increases hypocrites in their hypocrisy. You might wonder how could the Quran increase a person in hypocrisy? Because if you think about it, if there is a bag, if there's a bin with rotting garbage inside of it, and you pour a jug of the purest fruit juice, which is packed with vitamins and all the good things, what's going to happen? What's going to happen? Is it going to become better? No, it's only going to get it's only going to rot. In fact, it's going to
become worse than before. This is why we learn that Mujahidin Qatada, they said that no one sits with the Quran except that he gets up with either increase or loss. Either you increase or you lose more. This is Allah decree that he has made the Quran that he that he has made that the Quran is a healing and mercy for the believers and it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss than it is said Do they not see that they are tried every year once or twice the hypocrites any be incident of the book it expose the reality? Do they not see that every year there is some kind of hardship some kind of test which makes them recognize their their, you know their trickery, their deceit, but
then they do not repent nor do they remember, you see when we make mistakes. When we are in hardship, we are given a chance to look at ourselves in the mirror. And at that time, we have two options. Either admit your weakness, and now work on improving yourself. There should be introspection, or a person denies it and says you know what? I'm perfectly fine. Everybody else is at fault. So the hypocrites don't improve. These are, you know, difficult circumstances are moments of introspection, not entertainment and distraction. And whenever Sula is revealed, they look at each other saying, does anyone see you? Why? Because they're bored. And then they dismiss themselves
meaning they slip away. Believe quietly, Allah has dismissed their hearts because there are people who do not understand la caja, a camera solo min unfussy comb, there has certainly come to you a messenger from among yourselves, grievous to him is what you suffer. He is concerned over you and to the believer is his kind and merciful. This was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What a beautiful, what a great, excellent leader. He was eager to save people from hell. He said my example. And the example of the people is that of a man who made a fire. And when it lighted what was around it, moths and other insects started falling into the fire. So the man tried his best to
prevent them from falling into the fire. But they overpowered him, and they rushed into the fire. So the prophets of Allah who were to send him said, Now similarly, I take hold of the knots at your waist, meaning I'm trying to grab you to prevent you from falling into the fire but you insist on falling into it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he worked so hard, he tried so hard to save people from hell. And he was so eager to even give up his own comfort, his personal comfort. In order to benefit the oma. We learned that once the Prophet sallallahu earlier Sena was fasting. He was taking a nap and at that time
NASA had to be performed, so that people did not wake him up. And they went and buried that lady, and later on when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam saw the grave that it was fresh, he asked that Who is this? So they told him, so he asked that why didn't you wake me? They said that you were resting. So he said, that you should have informed me, you should have told me next time, he said latter for Aloo laughter follow, don't do that. Again, if I'm ever resting and a janessa has to be performed, call me to the Prophet sallallahu where it is and then went to the grave. And then he prayed for the lady who was in the grave. The Prophet sallallahu already said it was very considered
very, very empathetic. He said that when I begin the prayer, I intend to make it long, but then I hear a child crying, and I shorten the Salah because of his mother's feelings. sopran Allah and what were his draws? He would pray Allahumma Mati Almighty Allah my oma my oma, he reserved his prayer is special draw for the hereafter so that he can intercede for his oma. And one occasion we learned that I shall, I shall do a lot more on how to ask the Prophet sallallahu earlier send him that Yasuda love me girl for me. So he prayed, Oh ALLAH forgive her for her earlier sins and later sins and what she did in private and in public, so I shall do a lot more on Hello. So happy she started
laughing and she put her head in the lap of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked, Did my dog make you happy? She said Why would it not make me happy? He said by Allah. This is my dog for my oma in every prayer of mine. This is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted for his oma, this is how he was towards his oma. So how should we be? Allah says for into Allah, but if they turn away for cool has to be Allah hula ilaha illa Who? Allah Hito culto who are a boon Asha alim, you should say sufficient for me as Allah, there is no de t except him. on him, I have relied and He is the Lord of the great throne. Meaning if the turn away, then they're turning away, they're
abandoning you is not going to harm you, because Allah will be enough for you. Now there is a fabricated narration in which we learn that it is said that whoever says this statement seven times in the morning and seven times the evening, it will suffice him against all worries. But this narration is not authentic. There's no sound evidence for this report. However, this statement is certainly very empowering, it is a positive affirmation. So anytime that you feel rejected by people, that for example, you know, you call people to something good, but they reject you. Right? You invite them to something good, and they reject you. So you feel very sad, you feel alone, and
you also feel afraid. So at a time like this, say has to be Allahu La Ilaha Illa who Allah He taught culto Allah He took him to a who are bull[???] or leave, that Allah is enough for me on him, I put my trust, and He is the Lord of the Throne. So his treasures are vast. What I need is with him, you know, sometimes people get very disappointed when there's a prospective, you know, proposal for marriage, and then it doesn't get it doesn't work. They feel so rejected, that you know what I feel like nobody wants me know, at that time, say has to be Allah. Because you know what Allah told his messenger to say has to be Allahu La Ilaha Illa who are les Hito cultiver horrible. Charlene. So Say
it, say it anytime that you want, and say it as many times as you want. Because if it was good for the prophets of Allah, whoever it is that I'm to say, then this will also be beneficial for us to say surah to Eunice so that Eunice is a mucky, surah and like many murky souls, it mentions in detail, the proofs of the oneness of Allah, the resurrection Prophethood and other matters related to faith. We see that sort of Toba ends with the mention of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so that Yunus begins with his mentioned also
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, lF lamb rah, these are the verses of the wise book, have the people been amazed that we revealed revelation to a man from among them saying war in mankind and give good tidings to those who believe that they will have a firm precedence of honor with their Lord Subhan Allah, the Quran gives such good news that those who believe will have other Muslim with their Lord, what is other Muslim became a position of honor. Can you imagine a position of honor near Allah, a position of honor that is certain that is any real and permanent from which is no decline or reward that is excellent for the deeds that they have sent ahead. So keep doing good. But the disbelievers
say Indeed, this is an obvious magician. Indeed, your Lord is Allah who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne, arranging the matter of his creation.
There is no intercessor except after his permission, that is Allah your Lord. So worship Him, then will you not remember, to him is your return all together? It is the promise of Allah which is truth. Indeed, he begins the process of creation, and then repeats it, that he may reward those who have believed and unrighteous deeds bill Lucas in justice. Because if you just look at this world, Kenny, it's very obvious that this world is not complete. It's not completely fair. There has to be a sequel, right? There has to be a second chapter where it will complete the story. And this is why the Day of Judgment is there to give people what they deserve been blessed. But those who
disbelieved will have a drink of scalding water, and a painful punishment for what they used to deny. It is he who made the sun is shining light, and the moon it arrived light and determined for it phases that you may know the number of years and account of time, Allah has not created this, except in truth. He details the signs for people who know only tomiyama Moon, this is why it's so important for us to learn not just religious texts, but we should also learn about the creation that Allah has created. Any you see the moon, the sun is mentioned over here, account of time as mentioned over here, but this knowledge should always be in the right context. It should always be
with the realization that Allah is the Creator. And this is when such knowledge will be beneficial to a person it will be a means of increase in faith. Indeed, in the alternation of the night and the day and in what Allah has created in the heavens and the earth are Signs for people who fear of law in alladhina Lael, Gianelli Hall and indeed those who do not expect the meeting with us, we're a little bit higher to dunya and are satisfied with the life of this world. Welcome a newbie her and they feel secure. They're in one ladina, whom on IR Tina Rafi known and those are heedless of our signs, what will happen to such people, for those their refuge will be the fire because of what they
used to earn. Look at the loss in being satisfied only with this world in thinking that this world is everything. So do whatever because YOLO you live only once, and if you don't have fun, then you will miss out. So a person should not make this world their ultimate concern. Because remember, forgetting the Hereafter, and making this world your ultimate concern is only going to bring loss upon loss. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever makes the world, his most important matter, Allah will confound his affairs and make poverty appear before his eyes, and he will not get anything from the world except what has been decreed for him. But whoever makes the
hereafter his most important matter, Allah who will settle his affairs and make him content in his heart, and the world will come to him, although he does not even want it.
In the levina amanu why middle solly had indeed those who have believed and unrighteous deeds he had the hammer of boom be Imani him, their Lord will guide them because of their faith. Look at the contrast Allah will guide them because of their Eman. beneath them, rivers will flow in the Gardens of Pleasure, meaning Allah will guide them to Jenna they're called there and will be Subhana Allah home Exalted are You Oh Allah, and they're greeting there and will be Salaam peace will include our way home and the last of their call will be an ill hounded Illa hero Billa alameen that Praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds these are the Grateful servants of Allah, those who are grateful in this
life and Hamadan and those who are grateful to Allah praising and thanking Allah in Jannah. Also, Allah Mulder and I'm in home. So we see in these verses, that because of the man a person is guided to doing good things in this life, and on the Day of Judgment, because of the man a person will be guided, they will be led to Jenna, this is why we say a dinner a dinner Serato musta came and a Serato was the theme. Yes it is in this life. But remember, there is also a split off on the Day of Judgment, which is over Hellfire, which all of us have to cross. So how is it that we can cross that bridge to Jenna when we have a man? So remember, because of a man a person will have is to karma. A
person will have steadfastness in their religion, because of their email and because of their faith. They will be able to cross that bridge safely. But remember, a man doesn't just mean that a person says I believe
For each man, a person must have knowledge a person must increase in their awareness, the person must act upon that knowledge, there must be real and amahl This is why hedaya guidance includes both hedaya it shad and diotrephes which means there is knowledge and there is action. This is why the companions would say that we learned amen then we learned the Quran. And as a result of that we increased in our Amen. So remember, knowledge increases a person and Amen, because knowledge leads to action. This is why we see that in the grave also, a person will have peace because of their Eman and good deeds. The example of the believer we learn in our Hadees with respect to his death is like
a person who has three friends, one is his wealth. So it says, Take whatever you wish, the second says, I am with you, but when you die, I will leave you
meaning this is his family. And the third says I am with you This is his actions, I will go with you and I will rise with you. Because the thing is that when a person goes to their grave, their wealth, any it will not benefit them, their family also will not stay with them. What is it that will bring comfort to a person in their grave? It is their good deeds. And we see that on the Day of Judgment also, as soon as a person will be resurrected, guidance to paradise will begin.
Even gerade said that this will be on the day of judgment when a person will come out of his grave he will be greeted by his deeds that will appear to him in a very beautiful pleasing fragrant form. So he will ask Who are you so that that person will say I am your deeds, so it will shine a light for him until he will enter Jenna. Yeah, de Moura boom, be Imani him. And if Allah who was to hasten for the people, that evil they invoke as he hastens for them, the good their term would have been ended for them. But we leave the ones who do not expect the meeting with us in their transgression, wandering blindly, meaning without any hardship in their life. And when affliction touches men, he
calls upon us whether lying on his side, or sitting or standing. But when we remove from him his affliction, he continues in disobedience, as if he had never called upon us to remove an affliction that touched him, thus is made pleasing to the transgressors, that which they have been doing. This is very selfish. And this is a mistake that unfortunately, many people make our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala shouldn't be such that only when we desperately need something, then we remember him. And then when things are good, we forget about him. Yes, of course, there should be an increase in worship, when things are difficult, but it should not be completely absent in good
times, because the out of La you feel a hot vrF Kofi should recognize and acknowledge Allah in times of ease, meaning remember him and in prosperity, and he will remember you in times of adversity, and we had already destroyed generations before you when they wronged and their messengers had come to them with clear proofs, but they were not to believe, thus do We recompense the criminal people, then we made you successors in the land after them, so that we may observe how you will do and when our work and when our Verses are recited to them as clear evidence is those who do not expect the meeting with us say, bring this up or on other than this or change it, they just don't like the
Quran, they'd rather follow something else. It's like, you know, they, they want to believe but they don't want to. So they say, Please change it, say, it is not for me to change it on my own accord. I only follow what is revealed to me, indeed, I fear if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous day, say, If Allah had willed, I would not have recited it to you, nor would he have made it known to you, for I had remained among you a lifetime before, then will you're not reason reading this is clearly from a lie, it's not from me. So who is more unjust than he who invents a lie about Allah or denies His signs, indeed, the criminals will not succeed? Now there should cause being
mentioned. And they worship other than Allah, that which neither harms them nor benefits them, and they say, these are our intercessors with Allah subhanaw taala so many people, I know they will call upon someone other than Allah. Why, with the same justification, that you know what we try to please them so that they will intercede on our behalf? Say, do you inform Allah of something he does not even know in the heavens or the earth? Meaning Are you trying to tell Allah about something that doesn't exist? Exalted is He and high above what they associate with him, and mankind was not but one community, meaning everybody was upon the worship of Allah alone, but then they differed. And if
not for a word that proceeded from your Lord, it would have been judged between them immediately concerning
That over which they deferred. And they say, why is a sign not sent down to him from his Lord, how come he doesn't show any fancy miracles. So say the unseen is only for Allah to administer. So wait indeed I am with you among those who wait. And when we get and when we give the people a taste of mercy, after adversity has touched them at once they conspire against our verses. So panela, immediately the turn against Allah say, Allah is swifter in strategy. Indeed, Our Messengers record that which you can inspire. So you cannot trick Allah. It is he who enables you to travel on land and sea until when you are in ships, and they sail with them by a good wind, and they rejoice.
They're in there comes a storm, wind, and the waves come upon them from everywhere, and they assume that they're surrounded. Now they feel like this is it, then they begin to supplicate Allah sincere to him in religion. If you should save us from this, we will surely be among the thankful. So remember, Allah subhanaw taala responds to the
meaning those who are in difficulty when they call upon Allah, even if they are those who don't believe in Allah, because many people in such situations they turn to Allah. And really we do experience moments where we realize that there is nothing, nothing at all that can bring us out of our difficulty, other than Allah subhanaw taala. You know, for example, a person has a health condition, and then they have a scheduled, you know, surgery or treatment or something like that. And what happens, all surgeries are canceled because of the current pandemic, all appointments, everything has been delayed and deferred. So you see that, yes, I want to get better. But I know
that this is not going to work. This is not going to work, who is going to help me, only Allah can help me. But there are some people who don't even break down before Allah. In such desperation. The hearts have become so hard that even in such difficult circumstances, people don't cry before Allah,
and the rest of the people, what is their behavior, that when he saves them at once they commit injustice upon the earth without right, or mankind, your injustice is only against yourselves, being merely the enjoyment of worldly life than to us as your return. And we will inform you of what you used to do. Indeed, be example of this worldly life is only like rain, which we have sent down from the sky, that the plants of the earth absorb those from which men and livestock ate, until when the earth has taken on its adornment and is beautified. And this is something that we can see these days, you know, all of these colors of spring sopran Allah, and its people suppose that they have
capability over it, what happens, there comes to it our command by night or by day, and we make it as a harvest one night, and what happens, one,
you know, there's frost or one storm, and everything finished, as if it had not flourished yesterday. Thus do We explain in detail the signs for people who give thought, the thing is that worldly life and the things of this world, they feel so important. But eventually hinny no matter how important something is, it becomes as though it never was. So no matter how expensive how valuable, something in worldly life is how hard you have worked for it. Remember, this world will come to an end, and it will be get alone toner bill as if it never existed before. So don't waste yourself away over what is temporary, over what is going to come to an end. And on the Day of
Judgment, worldly life will literally feel like nothing. But right now it feels like everything. And this is the reason why we obsess so much over it and we cry so much over it. But every year as the season changes, Allah subhanaw taala reminds us of the reality of the world. But we need that airbrush. We need to take that lesson and remember that lesson. We learned that on the Day of Judgment, a person from the people of hell will be brought out and this will be a person who lived a life of ease and plenty.
And he will be asked that Did you ever experience any blessing? And he will say by Allah never. I never experienced anything good. So hell, we'll make a person forget about every good thing that they enjoyed. So don't focus just on worldly enjoyment. also focus on the hereafter. And especially when you are enjoying the things of this world because they're not unlawful. Always check yourself. Is this something that my Lord would approve is
is something that would make Allah subhanaw taala happy? Is it something that would bring me closer to Allah to his pleasure? Or is this something by which Allah will be displeased with me? Even if people are very very impressed by me? Well, La Jolla, daru Isla Dar es Salaam and Allah invites to the home of peace and guides whom He wills to a straight path Salaam, home of safety and soundness where nothing deteriorates, where there's only increase in blessings lilina Arsenal has now was the other for them who have done good is the best reward and extra increase only increase no deterioration because Jenna is the home of Cena. And what does that increase in reward for the
people of Jenna, it is the the privilege of seeing Allah subhanaw taala no darkness will cover their faces nor humiliation, those are companions of Paradise, they will abide there in eternally. So there will be no gloom on them, no sadness on them, they will only be happy. We learned that in Jannah Allah subhanaw taala will ask the people of Jenna, that do you wish me to give you anything more? And they will say have you not brightened our faces meaning you have given us so much that the joy the nor is visible in our faces? Have you not admitted us into genma and saved us from the fire? Meaning what more could we desire? And then Allah subhanaw taala will show himself to them, they
will see Allah And at that time, they will feel that there is nothing more dearer, more enjoyable than the sight of their Lord, will Luca net will as a local love that and nobody eat what Jake.
But they have earned blame for evil doings, the recompense of an evil deed is its equivalent, and humiliation will cover them, they will have from Allah, no protector, it will be as if their faces are covered with pieces of the night. So covered and gloom are they those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide there and eternally and mentioned the day we will gather them all together, then we will say to those who associated others with Allah, remain in your place, you and your partners, then we will separate them. And their partners will say you did not use to worship us Subhana Allah, they will be abandoned by the very beings that they used to worship. And sufficient
is Allah as a witness between us and you that we were off your worship unaware. there on that day, every soul will be put to trial for what it did previously. And they will be returned to a law, their master the truth, and lost from them is whatever they used to invent, say, who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Or who controls hearing and sight? So then who should you worship? Whose pleasure should you seek? And who brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living? And who arranges every matter? They will say Allah so say, then will you not fear him? for that? is Allah your Lord, the truth? And what can be beyond truth except error? So
remember, there's only one how, because from other bardahl, healthy in the banal, so how are you averted? Thus, the word of your Lord has come into effect upon those who defiantly disobeyed that they will not believe, say, Are there of your partners, and he who begins creation and then repeats it? Meaning Is there anyone who is able to resurrect the dead? Say, Allah begins creation, and then repeats it. So how are you diluted? Say, are there of your partner's, any who guides to the truth? Say Allah guides to the truth? So is he who guides to the truth more worthy to be followed? Or he who guides Not unless he is guided? Then what is wrong with you? How do you judge anyone is a
creature who needs the help of others who is dependent on others, even an idol for example, it has to be transported, creation needs to be guided, they need to find their way. And Allah is the one who guides who creates, there is a huge difference between the creator and the creation. So don't make them equal. And most of them follow not except assumption, indeed, assumption avails not against the truth at all. One is fact. And the other is assumption. If theory, don't think that they're equal, they're not equal. And it was not, Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what they do. And it was not possible for this Quran to be produced by other than Allah, it can only be the word of
Allah, but it is a confirmation of what was before it, and a detailed explanation of the former scripture about which there is no doubt from the Lord of the worlds and if we remember this, that this Quran is from the Lord of the worlds that we would accept everything it says
Or do they say about the Prophet that he invented it, say, then bring forth the suta like it and call upon for assistance, whomever you can besides Allah if you should be truthful, because you know what, if I can do it, then you should be able to do it too. Rather, they have denied that which they encompass not in knowledge, and whose interpretation has not yet come to them. Thus did those before them deny, then observed how it was the end of the wrongdoers, and all of them are those who believe in it, and of them are those who do not believe in it, and your Lord is most knowing of the corrupters. And if they deny you, then say for me are my deeds and for you are your deeds, you are
dissociated from what I do, and I am dissociated from what you do. So let me do my work. And among them are those who listened to you, meaning they listened, but they don't understand. Because if they did, they would have believed, but can you cause the deaf to hear, although they will not use reason. So this shows us that mere listening is not enough. It is not enough to just listen to good things and to know about them. action is necessary. We learned a hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, war to those who hear the word but persist on what they have been doing while they know. Meaning they know they have found out but still they persist, so woe to them. So listen
to Quran in a way that it goes inside, it penetrates your soul so that it transforms you. And when you listen, listen for the purpose of changing yourself improving yourself. Listen so that you can learn things that you can do not just listen to things that you're like, oh, wow, that is amazing. And the next day Forget about it. And among them are those who look at you, but can you guide the blind, although they will not attempt to see the factories of the people of Mecca, saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they knew his flock his manner, his base was not that of a liar. But they refused to see the truth in him.
Abdullah bin Salaam said that when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam came to Medina, and everybody rushed to see him, he said, I saw him. And I knew that his face was not the face of a liar. Indeed, Allah does not run the people at all, but it is the people who are wronging themselves. And on the day when he will gather them, it will be as if they had not remained in the world, but an hour of the day, and they will know each other, any on the Day of Judgment, life of the world will seem so short that it will be as if they lived only for a day or part of a day. And then they will know each other, they will recognize each other. Those will have lost who denied the meeting with Allah, and
we're not guided, and whether we show you some of what we promised them, or we take you in depth to us as their return. Then either way, Allah is a witness concerning what they're doing. And for every nation is a messenger. So when their messenger comes, it will be judged between them and justice, and they will not be wronged. And they say when is the fulfillment of this promise, if you should be truthful, they impatiently demanded the punishment, say, I possessed not for myself any harm or benefit, except Allah should will. Because the fact is, that all power is with Allah and Allah alone, no one else, for every nation is a specified term, when their time has come, they will not
then they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they proceed it say, Have you considered if his punishment should come to you by night or by day? For which aspect of it with the criminals be impatient? meaning is the are the club even something that you should be eager for?
Then is it that when it has actually occurred, you will believe in it now, and you were once for too impatient? Then it will be set to those who had wronged taste the punishment of eternity? Are you being recompensed except for what you used to earn? And they ask information of you? Is it true? Meaning the day of judgment? Is it really true? Say yes, by my Lord, indeed, it is truth and you will not cause failure to Allah. And if each soul that wronged had everything on Earth, it would offer it in ransom, and they will confide regret when they see the punishment, and they will be judged injustice, and they will not be wronged, unquestionably, to Allah belongs whatever is in the
heavens and the earth. unquestionably, the promise of Allah is truth, but most of them do not know. And in their ignorance, they're so proud, who is God, who is Allah, Who is the one who is worthy of worship. He is the one who gives life and causes death and to Him you will be returned. So yeah, you have NASS all mankind on the journey at como ella to Milla become there has come to you instruction from your Lord, meaning you have received it now. When she fell only my fifth sudo and healing for what is in the chests. What is
healing the Quran, where who then and guidance what maternal meaning and a mercy for the believers could be fugly Allah He will be rajmachi say in the bounty of Allah and in His mercy for be vaniqa folio for who in that let them rejoice. Why rejoice? Because who are higher on my edge of my own, it is better than what they accumulate meaning on having the Quran, they should be happy. Why? Because it is better than everything that people accumulate. How is it better? Look at this. It's just one book, but so many benefits, it has so many benefits, a source of endless benefit. How, first of all, it's an effective admonition meaning, it tells you what you need to know. It doesn't just give
information, but it hits the heart so that it becomes transformative. And then the Quran is Shiva, meaning if you follow its prescriptions, this will heal you it will solve your problems, whether it is the waswas of shaitan or it is worry or grief or it has bad intentions or it has bad desires, whatever it is, the Quran will bring shifa, even clay him said there is no disease of the heart or of the body, except that the Quran can cure it. It can guide to its healing. So this is why we see that once a woman was being treated for something and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Ali g Hibiki tabula, treat her with the book of Allah. So yes, take the medication, yes, go for therapy,
but put it on us Shiva, take that as well. And then we see Quran is also who the guidance in this life in every matter, big and small. And in the next life also it will lead to gender. And then the Quran is mercy, because it will take a person to gender and even in the world and gatherings where people study the Quran, mercy envelops them. It is truly better than anything else that we have. So gather more and more of the Quran. It's recitation, memorization, knowledge, it's understanding, and of course, it's action and then be happy, because it brings delight folio for who they should be happy. Say, have you have you seen what Allah has sent down to you of provision of which you have
made some lawful and some unlawful, say, has Allah permitted you to do that? Or do you invent something about Allah, and what will be the supposition of those who invent falsehood about Allah on the Day of Resurrection, Indeed, Allah is full of bounty to the people, he is so generous to mankind, but most of them are not grateful Subhanallah and you are not engaged in any matter. Meaning any matter that you are busy in, whether it is something good or bad, whether you are in pain, or you're perfectly fine, whether you're struggling with what you're doing, or you're really enjoying it, whether it's morning or night, whatever it is that you're doing in whatever condition
that you're in, or recite any of the Quran, and you people do not do any deed, except that we are witness over you. Allah is watching us the entire time. And he sees he knows what people don't know what people don't see. Because you see, certain conditions are invisible. If a person has a broken arm, it's very visible, that they're in pain. But if a person is suffering from you know something in their heart, in their mind, that is invisible, so people don't acknowledge it. People don't even accept it. But Allah subhanaw taala knows what condition you are in and what you are doing. And this is why we must live with the consciousness and the remembrance of Allah and the fear of Allah. That
we should not do anything in any of our states that would be displeasing to Allah subhana wa Tada. So those who live like this, Allah in Olia, Allah, La homophone la him, while our homea has a known unquestionably, for the allies of Allah, there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve, meaning, even if they grieve for some time, their grief is not going to be permanent, because Allah subhanaw taala will bring them relief. Allah subhanaw taala will bring them moments of joy and delight and sweet pleasure, even in extreme pain, so much so that they can smile like ESEA did well for our own was torturing her. And we learned that in the hereafter what is going to
happen? Allah subhanaw taala will remove Allah will take away any fear and any grief from his friends His righteous servants. level for nearly him well elmia has known the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there are people from the servants of Allah who are neither prophets nor
martyrs, the prophets and martyrs will envy them on the Day of Judgment for their rank from Allah. So the people asked, Who are they? Who could they be? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there are people who love one another for the Quran, without having any mutual kinship and nor giving property to one another. I swear by Allah, their faces will glow and they will be sitting in pulpits of light, they will have no fear on the day when the people will have fear and they will not grieve when the people will grieve. And then the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said and recited this ayah so how does this begin? This begins by connecting with the Quran. So if we want to, to, if we want
that our grief and our fear leaves us forever, for good, then we must connect with the Quran. And when you connect with the Quran, it's not that immediately Your life will be perfect. Did you ever feel sad? No, you will, you will be sad, you will be afraid. But Allah subhanaw taala will not leave you in your fear and your grief, he will bring you relief and on the Day of Judgment, he will bring you permanent relief in sha Allah and levena amanu What can we add takuan there are those who believed and were fearing Allah. So because of their Eman because of their taqwa Allah subhanaw taala will give them relief in both worlds and Allah will give them what will satisfy them. So they
will say kodra Lena, your your rub, we are pleased for them are good tidings in the worldly life and in the Hereafter, no changes there in the words of Allah. That is what is the great attainment, meaning this is certainly going to happen. Allah will give them good news in this life and also in the hereafter. What is the good news in this life? We learned without ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Yasuda Allah What do you say about when a person does a good deed for the sake of Allah and then people love him for it. So he said that is the immediate glad tidings of the believer. Valley garaje to Bushnell movement. That is Bushra good news for the believer that when
you do something good with sincerity, then you see the good effects of it ripple effects of it, especially in your relationships, while a husband kokkola home and let not their speech grieve you, meaning stop caring about what people say, indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely. He is the hearing the knowing. And the thing is that when a person befriends Allah, than the fear of people, departs from their heart, unquestionably, to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and those who invoke other than Allah do not actually follow any partners, meaning those partners are not real, they follow not except assumption, and they are not but falsifying. It
is he who made for you the night to rest they're in and the day giving sight, indeed in that are Signs for people who listen, they have said, Allah has taken a sun. There are people who say, Allah has a son, Jesus, Exalted as he, he is the one free of need, he doesn't need a son, To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. You have no authority for this claim. How dare you say this? Do you say about Allah, that which you do not know, say, Indeed, those who invent falter about Allah will not succeed for them as brief enjoyment in this world, then to us as their return, then we will make them taste the severe punishment, because they used to disbelieve, and
recite to them the news of new when he said to his people, oh, my people, if my residents and my reminding of the signs of Allah has become burdensome upon you, meaning it's been too long, you're getting fed up with me, then I have relied upon of law. So you know what, resolve upon your plan, do something to harm me and call upon your associates call upon these gods that you worship, pray to them to harm me, then let not your plan be obscure to you be very clear about it, then carry it out upon me, and do not give me rest by
meeting he challenged them so openly. And if you turn away from my advice, the no payment have I asked of you, my reward is only from Allah and I have been commanded to be of the Muslims, but still, they denied him. So we saved him and those with him in the ship and made them successors, and we drowned. Those who denied our signs, then see how was the end of those who were warned. Then we sent after him messengers to their peoples, and they came to them with clear proofs, but they were not to believe in that which they had denied before. Thus we seal over the hearts of the transgressors, Subhana Allah, those who reject the truth, and there comes a point where it becomes
impossible for them to accept it later, because their ego blinds them. Then we sent after the Moosa and how rune to fit our own, and his establishment with our signs, but they behaved arrogantly and we're criminal people. So when there came to them the truth from us they said, Indeed, this is obvious magic was already set up.
Do you say thus about the truth when it has come to you? At the coluna? They'll help in a merger aka a sihon, however, is this magic. You can see the strength in his words. And he was annoyed that How dare you say this is magic. This is not magic. But magicians will not succeed. They said, Have you come to us to turn us away from that upon which we found our fathers and so that you too may have grander in the land you want to take over? And we are not believers in you and fit our own set. Bring to me every learned magician so the magician came was I said to them, throw down whatever you will throw. And then when they had thrown mozarella celeb said magic to be his second, when you have
brought his only magic in Allah has say you will play No, Indeed Allah who will expose its worthlessness Allah will destroy it in Allah hilariously, who am I well move city. Indeed, Allah does not amend the work of the corrupters when you hit the law who will help you Kelly Murti? Well, oh, Katie Hill Majidi moon and Allah will establish the truth by his words, even if the criminals dislike it. So remember, magic has no power against the Quran against the Ayat of Allah against the Hulk. Most artists performed one miracle and the magic of the magicians completely destroyed. But then after that, what happened? But no one believed Musashi Salaam except some youths among his
people, why out of fear of fit our own, and his establishment that they would persecute them. And this fear was real, it was not imaginary, because indeed, fit our own was hottie within the land very arrogant, and indeed he was of the transgressors. And Musa said, All my people, if you have believed in Allah, then rely upon him. If you should be Muslims. So the said Allah, Allah Hito Cana upon Allah, do we rely? And then they prayed or been Allah said, Your Honor, if it's not a little comunale mean, our Lord make us not objects of trial for the wrongdoing, people, meaning Don't let us suffer persecution at their hands, and also fitna that don't let us suffer because then they will
think they're right. And save us by your mercy from the disbelieving people. And Allah subhanaw taala responded to them when, when they relied upon him, and they made the right to him. Our problem is, we made the law sometimes we were very shaky, we're not that confident. So have our call and make draw. And we inspire to moose and his brother, subtle, your people in Egypt in houses and make your houses facing the Qibla. Or make your homes into places of worship, and establish prayer and give good tidings to the believers. So we see that the bunny is slightly ill in Egypt, they had no freedom, they were persecuted so much that they could not even congregate in order to pray together.
So what were they told pray at home. And the Quran is amazing. Such beautiful guidance for us in our current situation, that there are times when when we're not able to go to the masjid, because of different situations. It's beyond our control. So just because a person cannot go to the masjid doesn't mean that they stop worshiping. No, now worship at home, make your homes into places of worship. dedicate a place in your home, where the entire family gathers to worship Allah together, pray Salah, in congregation, and in the night, especially in the month of Ramadan. Make sure that your praying clan will live together so that no one is missing out. And musala salaam said Our Lord,
indeed you have given for our own and his establishment splendor and wealth in the worldly life, our Lord, that they may lead men astray from your way, meaning they have so much of this and because of that they're misguided and they're misguiding others, our Lord, obliterate their wealth and harden their hearts, so that they will not believe until they see the painful punishment will start as an upgrade against their own and his people. Allah said, Your supplication has been answered, so remain on the right course meaning be firm, and follow not the way of those who do not know, meaning Be patient, because there is a time for everything. And we took the children of Israel across the sea
and fit our own and his soldiers pursued them in tyranny and enmity until one drowning overtook him. He said, I believe that there is no data except that in whom the children of Israel have believed and I am of the Muslims, so lb Allah fit our own believed, right when he was drowning, he surrendered when he was dying. And a lot of people do the same thing that they keep waiting, waiting, waiting, and they say, you know what, when I'm older, I'll go for hedge. When I'm older, I'll start praying. Well, who knows? What if you never get to that state? And what if death comes suddenly have we not seen in recent days
How literally families, how many families hundreds and 1000s of people have died all of a sudden, any is the Isn't this an Ebro, so don't delay, it will set now, and you had disobeyed him before and we're off the corrupters. So today we will. So today we will save you in body, meaning he died at the time but his body was preserved. Why that you may be to those who succeed you assign that people will see your body and they will learn a lesson from you. And indeed, many among the people of our signs are heedless. And we had certainly settled the children of Israel in an agreeable settlement and provided them with good things. So their sorrow to the restaurant also passed on last panel to
change their difficulty into ease. So their difficulty was not permanent. And they did not defer until after knowledge had come to them. Indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they use to defer. So if you are in doubt or profit about that which We have revealed to you, the prophets that a lot of sudden was never in doubt it was the people who are in doubt. Then ask those who have been reading the scripture before you. The truth has certainly come to you from your Lord. So never be among the doubters, meaning there have always been prophets before Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not a new Prophet, and never be of
those who deny the signs of Allah, and thus be among the losers. Indeed, those upon whom the word of your Lord has come into effect will not believe even if every sign should come to them, until they see the painful punishment just like their own, then has there not been a single city that believed so its faith benefited it except the people of Yunus when they believed we removed from them the punishment of disgrace in worldly life and gave them punishment for a long time. So the people of Yunus are to his Salaam, their situation was truly exceptional. And they were fortunate how Uncle Sam left them, because he was angry with them because of their denial. And he was caught in the
fish, and the people back in the city became afraid. And then they repented. So their Toba was accepted, even though it was at the last moment. Otherwise, remember, doba is not accepted at the last moment at the time of death. We see that when in a hadith that when three things appear, faith will not benefit a person who has not previously believed or has derived no good from his faith. What are those three things, the rising of the sun, in its place of setting, meaning from the west, the appearance of the jail, and the Battle of the beast of the earth, which will come out very close to the day of judgment? And had your Lord willed those on Earth would have believed all of them
entirely. Luck would have forced people to believe, but he does not force them. Then would you compel the people in order that they become believers, any of Allah does not forced and why do you want to force? Why do you want to compel and it is not for a soul to believe except by permission of Allah, all blessings are in Allah's hand. Allah is control, including faith, and he will play as defilement upon those who will not use reason. So we should ask Allah for a man for strength of Eman, say, observe what is in the heavens and the earth, meaning look at it yourself, reflect over it, but have no avail will be signs or Warner's to people who do not believe they don't benefit. So
do their way to except for like what occurred in the days of those who had passed on before them? Say then wait, indeed I am with you among those away? Do you just want history to repeat itself? Do you want to be just like the nations of the past, then we will give, then we will save our messengers and those who have believed thus it is an obligation upon us that we save the believers gulia yohannes say all people, if you are still in doubt as to my religion, then I do not worship those which you worship besides Allah. But I worship Allah only Allah who causes your death, and I have been commanded to be of the believers. This is Allah subhanaw taala The one who controls our
death, meaning our return is to him and I have been commanded, direct your face toward the religion inclining to truth and never be of those who associate others with Allah and do not invoke besides Allah, that which neither benefits you nor harms you for if you did, then indeed you would be of the wrongdoers. The Prophet sallallahu already said I was never going to do Schick. But through him it is made clear that there is no exception to this rule. If a person calls upon other than Allah, then their worship will not be accepted. Such a person will be a loser in the hereafter. What am seska Allah
will be loaded in Fela Kashi fella who Illa Who? And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except him. So what should we do in times of difficulty, we should call upon Allah. Just as Eunice Alia said I'm called upon him La ilaha illa Anta subhanak in the container volley mean, we should call upon Allah, just as a bunny is not yielded, that Allah, Allah, Allah, he told us, they, they, they are called upon Allah subhanaw taala. So
if there should be adversity on you, there is no remover of it except Him. And if he intends for your good, then there is no repeller of his bounty. So don't fear that people will ruin your blessings for you, because they cannot, he causes it to reach whom He wills of his servants, and he is the Forgiving the merciful, say, oh, mankind, the truth has come to you from your Lord, the Quran is here, the message of the Quran is clear. So whoever is guided is only guided for the benefit of his soul. So if you change yourself, according to the book of Allah, that is better for you. And whoever goes astray only goes astray in violation against it.
Meaning, he is going to suffer himself, and I am not over you a manager, meaning I'm not here to compel you, and follow what is revealed to you, oh, Prophet, and be patient until Allah who will judge and he is the best of judges. So we see over here, that the prophets of Allah, who are his enemies told, follow what has been revealed, and at the same time, be patient. And these are two things that we need to do. We need to focus on what we can do, the ways in which we can obey Allah subhanaw taala, the the avenues of worship that Allah subhanaw taala has opened up for us, instead of only complaining about instead of instead of just complaining about the difficulty that we're
facing, and then secondly, we need to have some, we need to have Wait, we need to have patience, until relief comes. So both action and patience. And this shows us that patience doesn't mean inaction. It doesn't mean being passive that you do sit down and do nothing. No first what beer follow, and then what's been half patience.
Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim solitude, lF lamb rah, this is a book whose verses are perfected, and then presented in detail from one who is wise and acquainted. This is a law. Remember, this book is from him through a messenger saying do not worship except Allah. Indeed I am to you from him a warner and a bringer of good tidings and saying, seek forgiveness of your Lord and repent to him, and he will let you enjoy a good provision for a specified term. So remember, the prophet of Allah was not sent to judge people to say that you know what, you're going to hell and you're going to Hell no, he was sent to invite people to seek forgiveness from their Lord, and we need to do the
same thing. Instead of passing judgment on people. We need to bring them hope. And we need to show them the benefits of turning to Allah subhanaw taala that seek forgiveness and look, Allah subhanaw taala will open his blessings upon you and give every dollar a favor his favor, meaning Allah will not waste your effort. If you do good, Allah will do good to you. But if you turn away, then indeed, I feel for you the punishment of a great day.
In Allah He Moto G Welcome to Allah is your return. And he is over all things competence. unquestionably, they, meaning the disbelievers turn away their chests to hide themselves from him, meaning they turn away in order to hide themselves from Allah subhanaw taala. Or when they would see the Prophet sallallahu earlier Sunday, they would turn away in order to avoid him. But even when they cover themselves in their clothing, Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare. So even if a person is hiding under a blanket, but their phone is with them, and they're looking at things which are inappropriate, Allah knows what they're concealing and what they're declaring,
indeed, he is knowing of that within the chests. So remember, nothing at all is hidden from Allah, our external and our internal is known to Allah. So we should not be concerned about our image before people and obsessing over you know, people accepting us as good individuals. No, our concern should be to mend our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. And that is only possible if we fear Him, in private and in public. When we remember that Allah knows what we reveal, and what we hide. And Allah knows what we keep in our chests. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us his taqwa. inshallah, we will conclude over here suparna Columbo

Reveal very quickly.
Okay, and inshallah then we'll try to answer some questions. Okay.
Okay, so let's begin. Miss Mila. So Josie 11. Okay, so we went over
this story of the three people, when it was time for a battle that they stayed behind. And so, those of you who want to know about the story, I would encourage you highly encourage you to inshallah, when you get off, read, read the story of a cabin Malik and Cara De La Hoya. And it's an amazing story. And so here last month, I was telling us that the three were left behind. That means there were many people, right, who had gone for a battle that there were some who had stayed behind, and those who had stayed behind were basically the hypocrites, and among them were a few Muslims and this story is of these three.
so when the three as Pamela confessed, they told the truth, then Alice mother says that the earth basically closed in on them, right? It became very tight. And so
despite it being a vast Earth, it became tight because some vanilla restrictions were placed posted on them.
Okay, and so, what did they do? They returned in repentance to Allah subhanaw taala Okay, so these are the three companions who
had told the truth that they had stayed behind.
Okay, so as Goblin Malik murrah been our rabbir and Hillel been ami,
Okay, and then what were they left behind in? First of all the battle taking place in the middle and then from seeking forgiveness as well.
Okay, and so why did they stay behind? Now? That's an important question, right? Because I lost my other thing is they were the companions and we know that Allah panda has bestowed his special favor on the companion so why did they stay behind? Because Subhanallah It was a time
Where resources were a few. Okay, there was a shortage of mounts, there was a shortage of food and water, it was very hot. It was very far. Right. And most importantly, it was harvest time. Okay, so it was a time when, as how to lead the harvest for the year was, it was time to harvest. Okay, and so when we look at all of these reasons, these are why these are reasons why people stay behind. Okay. And gabin Malik, he thought he had a mount, okay, and he it will be quick. And so he thought he'll just start behind them. So he thought, okay, let them go ahead. Let me get some harvest, and leave it for my family, and then I'll catch up to them. So he had every intention of going, right,
but then what happens when you procrastinate?
It just becomes harder and harder, right? We think, okay, tomorrow. I'll do it tomorrow. I'll do it tonight. Right? We just keep putting it off. And so that's what kept happening. He kept calculating and thinking, Okay, I'll be able to make it I'll be able to catch up to them. Right And so, but it came a time when he realized that you know what, even if he leaves now, he won't be able to catch up to them. Yes, things start falling on top of each other.
Right, so Subhanallah this is what happened with him. Right? So do we see ourselves in this? Sometimes we have every intention. We have the best of intentions and then Subhanallah we procrastinate we delay and then the opportunity completely slips from our hands. Right? Yes. So inshallah point to be taken. Don't procrastinate.
Yeah, better to bite the bullet and just do exactly shakedowns advice. Yes.
Okay, so when they stayed behind, and they confessed to the truth, okay, so, all the hypocrites what they did is they came and gave excuses. And the prophet of Islam just accepted them, right? Well, because what is he going to do? But these three, they came and they told the truth. Okay, and so, les pantalla.
First of all, he ordered everyone to completely boycott them. So their family, their friends, everyone, their neighbors, everyone around them completely boycotted them to the point where if they went to the masjid, no one would answer their Salaam. Okay, that means they completely
left them. They didn't
associate with them anymore. Okay, so their friends aren't talking to them or their families are talking to them and they feel terrible, right? They're feeling horrible. First of all, they're feeling guilty. Okay. And then secondly, now everyone has left them.
But then Alice panda accepted their daughter. Okay, so they're in this state for many days unless mother then revealed the IOD saying that last month Allah has accepted their Toba and hamdulillah when they came to the masjid, the process on them was one of the first to greet them.
And so they were very lucky because in this dunya, they found out that they made a mistake made doba and Allah subhanaw taala accepted it.
And so what is this, this is from Allah subhanaw taala because the ability to even realize our mistake, or to turn to Allah and ask Him to forgive us is from Allah, none of them. Right? And why does this come? Because Allah, Allah loves us and He wants us to repent, he wants us to turn back to him. So if we have this thought, even if it's for one second because like we said yesterday right shade on doesn't let a good thoughts in our mind for very long, right? That it is from Allah.
So if I realize that you know, I made a mistake, I should probably ask this person for forgiveness or I should turn to Allah and seek forgiveness thing, grab that right away and realize that's from a las panatela right, but what happens usually when we hurt someone, we think you know what, I should seek forgiveness, then what happens? What a shaitan make us think
that you know, it wasn't that bad? Yeah, we get weak.
I don't want to see forgiveness because I'm going to look small, or that person is going to realize that I made a mistake.
Yeah, we'd become arrogant. Exactly. Yeah, it wasn't really our fault. Our ego gets in the middle. Right, but that thought that I should apologize was from a less panthella
Yeah, exactly. Then we start making excuses. I it's not my fault. It's their fault. Our pride gets in the middle. Yes. But unless my dog gives us a tofield to repent, to grab it, then Allah accepts our tobuy inshallah
May He make us among those whose forgiveness he accepts? And then he turns in mercy, right? That means mercy could be in this world, and it can be in the afra for sure, because if some of us will forgive someone, then Jenna is a great mercy of a less panatela.
So, is it enough to see forgiveness one time? I made a mistake once and I'm going to seek forgiveness once and it's over. Now, as humans, what do we do? We make a mistake only once upon Allah. We all perfect now that we've said stuff for Allah. No Subhan Allah, right? It doesn't work that way. Right? So we have to continuously seek forgiveness, right? Every time I make a mistake, I need to seek forgiveness. Sometimes we swear we're never going to do anything again, right? I swear, I'm never going to miss my Salah this way. I'm never going to sleep in at fudgier time. Or I swear I'm never going to raise my voice at my family members. Right? But then Subhanallah we slip?
Yes. Then we have to, again seek forgiveness. And know that Allah Subhana Allah will wipe our slate clean if we are sincere. Right? So when we're sincere that means we are repenting.
Right, and then we have regret.
So we're sorry. We want to change ourselves. So we reform.
Okay, and we fix our mistakes. Right and resolve never to do it again.
Okay, so these are the steps for repentance. Angela, question in the
chat box here.
Yes, rectify it through our actions. Yes. Now, these three people they told they told the truth. So let's see what is lying and how it affects the brain. Okay, so this is a research and it's originally published in Reader's Digest so you can go look it up and shut up. So what happened is they did a study. Okay, so Reacher's, researchers told the participants that overestimating the amount of pennies in a jar would lead to personal gain. Okay, so their jar of pennies and they told the participants that if you lie, if you overestimate how many jar how many pennies are in this jar and give us a number, it's going to lead to some personal gain. So the participants brains were
scanned for activity during their responses, when they first began exaggerating the number of pennies in the jar. There. Am I am I gotcha. gadalla. Okay, I don't know how to pronounce it. The brains built in Gods of right and wrong, responded strongly in reaction to their dishonesty. Okay, so the when they first started, what happened their brains activity just went
You know, it, it's kind of like just immediately started to respond to you. Okay, and when it responded, it's because that right and wrong. The part of the brain that understands right and wrong, strongly responded to their this dishonesty. Okay, but as their exaggerations increase the response of this part of the brain decreased, showing that the brain becomes desensitized to repeat rapid, repetitive dishonesty. So what happened, the more they kept lying,
that part of the brain that realizes that recognizes dishonesty, just started to calm down, it just started to Subhanallah stop responding.
Right, so with every lie, a person tells the brain fee essentially feels less and less guilty or ashamed, which can lead to larger and more frequent lies.
So when we lie for personal gain, our brain produces a negative feeling that limits the extent to which we are prepared to lie. However, this response fades as we continue to lie, and the more it falls, the bigger our lives become.
Right? So this may become a slippery slope, where small acts of dishonesty escalate into more significant lies.
And what is surprisingly enough, so quite a lot. Most people lie once or twice a day.
It's the first time we lie what happens to our brain. It lights up, it goes nuts, realize realizes and recognizes that this is a lie. Subhan Allah. And then what happens after that to our brains.
They just Subhanallah stop responding.
And so when they stop responding, Subhan Allah it gets easier and easier to lie.
Yeah, it relaxes smila so then the brain doesn't feel guilty or ashamed. It's
Makes in some Hanalei it makes it easier to tell bigger and more frequent lies.
Yeah, yeah, sure inshallah
you can share the screenshot. So this is what happens when it's like when we're lying. So the first time it's hard and then it becomes easier and easier.
Yes, it becomes a habit Subhan Allah, but if you're a student inshallah, this slide will be uploaded in the portal, so you can just get it from there. So and then the next idea is, Oh, yes, until the hurt heart turns back. Oh, you have believed fear Allah and be with those who are true. Right. So from the lesson of the story, we learned that eventually the truth is what one right event. So apparently when you read the story of gabin Malik rhodiola one you'll see how it was a struggle for him spot on like wasn't that easy? Right and we can just imagine being boycotted for so many days from the people.
And then have Taqwa right having the while having the fear and love of Allah Subhana Allah will inshallah take keep us on the truth. Right and what is it what is truth the difference between truth and life? Truth is a debit card. Pay first enjoy later lie is a credit card enjoy first and pay later. Alright, so we pay so Han Allah for lying in the dunya and in the ocra no one trusts us. Right? And hello, we stress ourselves out. But in the author Subhanallah it's just lost complete loss. Okay, so inshallah we'll conclude here. So if you're a student, you'll find this slide uploaded in the portal and inshallah you can get it from there. So we'll see all of you tomorrow,
inshallah. Okay, take care have a good fast and May Allah, smart Allah accepted from us is Vanek along we'll be hanging, actually in La Land. istockphoto going to be like Islam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
gosh, battlefield three was an ogre azima douche.
