Long,

00:00:06--> 00:00:11

long, long, long,

00:00:17--> 00:00:19

long, long,

00:00:20--> 00:00:22

a long

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

way.

00:00:33--> 00:01:20

Since I'm already logging ago, how's everyone doing today? Is everyone ready for another session of Sham Ramadan book and inshallah we're going to cover a very beautiful art today inshallah. Milani ballista. Cover books today. So let's begin now mother who want to say Leonardo da Vinci Kareem and mbarara were all will be learning in a shavon Raji rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, rubbish roughly surgery were silly Omri workflow cordata melissani yokocho Kali lahoma popping up with email or give us the correct understanding of the deen May Allah enable us to make the most of this Ramadan. And today we're going to talk about suhoor. So as we know, that month of fasting is Ramadan, and we've

00:01:20--> 00:01:33

talked about the Hadees and Quranic IR to do with the month of fasting, but whenever we think of fast, we think of surah inshallah, today we're going to cover the suhoor part. So what do we know about su let's see,

00:01:35--> 00:02:19

from a breeder, the we know that a Buddha he narrated three things are from the traits of prophethood, first to hasten, and second to delay the savour and third to put the right hand on top of the left hand insula. You know, when you're standing in VR, and we place our right hand on top of left, that's what it is referring to. And we also know about a suroor and a lot of benefits. So now inshallah jot down the references so if you ever want to coat them or if you need them for your own motivation, they will inshallah help. First of all, so who are meal is a blessing for a believer there are blessings as a whole and it is also a Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:19--> 00:03:05

So the Hadees goes, it says, take us a whole meal for there isn't it much blessing, so we should not leave it because you know, we understand what Baraka is, this meal will be sufficient for us. It will give us enough energy to fast the whole day. There is another narration about it as well. So Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he invited Arbaaz bin Zarya or the other one to join him for suhoor. And then he also said, Hi, Luma Elana vada le mobarak come to the blessed morning meal. So like it's like a blessed morning meal this so good to come to that. So there's a beautiful way to invite by mentioning the quality of the sewer. Also, there is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa

00:03:05--> 00:03:40

Taala into her. And what is that? Abdullah bin How is he narrated from a person amongst the companions of Prophet sallallahu wasallam that he wants went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was eating food. So he sallallahu Sallam said, This su is a blessing that Allah has given you so do not leave it. So it's a gift from Allah. So don't leave it. If someone gives you something precious. You don't ignore it and you don't leave it. So similarly. So who should not be abandoned? It should not be ignored. It should not be taken as something which is just another meal.

00:03:42--> 00:03:47

There's another narration from sin and unnecessary it says nephalem bin Maddie curb

00:03:48--> 00:04:34

your crib you carried actually. So methadone bin Maddie, Maddie kariba he said from muscle loss and ally usnm you all should make the morning meal compulsory upon yourselves and as it is the best food of the morning. So 100 of you must have noticed that the word the word Baraka and Novara is coming over and over again, we're so good. So that is a big motivation for all of us to not skip it and not plan to skip it. If we accidentally do that's a different story, but we should not ever plan to skip it. And even if it's just one sip of water you know some people say like you know, I cannot eat so you don't have to have to eat this at least wake up at that time. Have something drink something,

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

even if it's just like a few sips of water. The sudo Allah sallallahu Sallam said there is Baraka in eating suroor. So do not leave it even if one is to drink a sip of water. So we should inshallah obey him if he can't eat a proper meal and that's totally fine. And it is also a mercy time to get mercy. Because you know, sometimes we are like, Okay, I'm up for supper, but I'm up at two

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

time but I don't want to have some more meal. Instead I want to make a car I want to do the hours.

00:05:06--> 00:05:50

I want to pray a bit more. So at this point inshallah This is going to help you this Hadees so Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, Verily Allah and His angels send mercy upon those who eat sewer. So when you're eating your sewer, even at that time, you know wasting your time actually, angels and Allah they are sending Salawat on you, they are sending blessings upon you. So this is a beautiful time, then we need mercy, we need their blessings. So we need this precious time so inshallah once you are a person who don't feel bad, don't feel that you're wasting time you're actually making the most of this time. So this means Allah showers His mercy and blessings upon the people when they are

00:05:50--> 00:06:33

enjoying and also angels, they pray for mercy and forgiveness for them. So when we look at the word, and you know, you saloon here, so Allah showers His mercy and blessings is what it means. And when we look at the word use alone in terms of Mullah Rica, then it means that angels pray for mercy. An angels pray for forgiveness for such a person. And what is the best who're best who can be dates? How do we know that again from Rasoolallah sallallahu Sallam he said how excellent our dates as the believers tour so we can eat a balanced and healthy meal it's a good time in order to stay active throughout and fresh throughout the day and be able to perform our worship properly and with energy

00:06:33--> 00:07:15

inshallah. So a checklist as we usually do for support. So don't miss a word. Also remember that it has Baraka so that you feel good about it. And remember that you get the hours of angels and mercy from Allah practice moderation in preparation so it should not become a feast. It should not become like another tour. It should not become like another two hour marathon in the kitchen. Avoid greasy food, eat healthy and again dates are a good option and it's like it again is a command or you can say in a way and suggestion of a little loss of hours and and for us you can also have milk you can also have your honey water at that time inshallah that's another so now you can add don't cook more

00:07:15--> 00:07:43

than required and give leftover food to the ones in need. If you accidentally did cook more and rejoice, you're following a Sunnah you're enjoying your food but on top of that you're also following the sun as an handler such a beautiful blessing from Allah we eat we still get a lot of reward. So yesterday we're supposed to talk about other eyes so we're going to do it today inshallah now because we were not able to do it yesterday, can you all seen the door slide now

00:07:51--> 00:07:58

can handle up so this was supposed to be done yesterday, so I'm just gonna go over it quickly because ever today's though is so beautiful. I really want to give it time

00:07:59--> 00:08:42

Bismillah Ar Rahman AR surveys we have done a similar door in morning evening at car but it comes like this as well like just a shorter version. And this can be said whenever we feel stressed out whenever we feel that we are in some type of distress, some type of anxiety some type of pressure, we feel that we can make this all What does it mean? All living all self sustaining sustainer bira motyka in your mercy as Cerise do I seek relief? What is the proof for saying that when ever Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he was stressed out he would say this so References So he already had his number 4777

00:08:43--> 00:08:48

again, very few words easy to memorize you already know them. If you want to change it into

00:08:49--> 00:08:57

a plural form, you're just going to change us the lease into masteries Alright, just add a new one so let me just add it for you.

00:09:03--> 00:09:53

So instead of hanza year you're going to just skip that hanza and you will just add a new one here like this joined with a flutter and just forget about this I left so that's the base so Oh Allah we all seek Your mercy this what it means all right, and your help with your mercy we're asking for your help. Alright, so the offer today is the are from a longer Dora but a short we can say phrase or two phrases to be exact. So you can add a llama before it or you can also add Aloma in the before it because it's a part of a longer that's why it was supposed to start from well, because we are just making this da why in the beginning doesn't really make sense. So we're gonna say Allahumma

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

inni por la indeed I as a Luca I asked you for what leather than now

00:10:00--> 00:10:16

But sweetness of looking at you, and sweetness of looking ILA to what shake your face. So sweetness of looking at you, I am asking for that. And that will be the the gift, the biggest gift in Jannah inshallah

00:10:17--> 00:11:05

was show quietly laliga iq and a longing to meet you, I desire to meet you. I want to see you and I want to meet you, Oh Allah, in easy words. So this comes from a long Dora from the NSA, the longer is very beautiful. I really want to go over it with all of you. But let me just tell you the context of the studies that, you know, where do we learn it from and what was the context? So we learned from Arthur, that from his father who said, I'm Mr. vinyasa or the other one, he led us in prayer, but he made it short. And some of the people they said to him, indeed, you have paraded short and very light. So he replied, can I not do so. And then he also made a statement, indeed, I made other

00:11:05--> 00:11:33

are in this Salah, which I heard from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And then is to to leave a man from the people followed him, and that was the father of the narrator. So he asked him, that wisdom was that like you made and made it that made your Salah short, but still, you know, it was good enough. So what was that? And then he taught this, or then he mentioned this, that he learned from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And let's just look at that.

00:11:34--> 00:12:18

So we're going to look at it phrase by phrase. But before we get there, actually, we'll come back to this. We still have time, right? So let's just look at the Torah phrase by phrase, the whole Aloha, maybe I'll make a line or the rhotic. Allah by your knowledge of the unseen and by your power Island, upon your creation. Now we're asking for something What is that? Really my island and higher, the higher only let me live. If you know the life is good for me, what was funny is our island, delver Fatah, hi, Ronnie, and let me die. If you know that that is good for me. So enable me to live for as long as it is good for me. And if it's not good for me, if it's if it's going to harm

00:12:18--> 00:12:29

my ophira then I better you know leave so it's a it's not encouraged in Aberdeen to make the offer that but if the situation is really really really tough, this is a very beautiful to

00:12:30--> 00:13:14

Allah, Oh Allah. For us, I Luca hatia, tagovailoa Shahada, I asked you to grant me the blessing of having the fear of you in private and also in public. So it's a very beautiful to offer ask Allah to have his questia so that we can also have proper taqwa with us, Olga Kelly, will look utterly mad and happy for your reader will have other and I asked you to make me say make me utter a statement of truth, in the times of contentment, and also in anger. Because you know, sometimes when you're really happy, you forget about our limits. Other times when you're very angry, you forget about our limits, and we say things which are not good, or sometimes you say things, which are actually

00:13:14--> 00:14:03

crossing the bounds or limits. So this is the beautiful there are to keep us, you know, in check or also to keep us under control sort of thing. So like, it is asking a lot for self control in terms of words, in terms of in terms of our words in a different way, well as a local cost of inventory. While Lena and I asked you for moderation, when in a state of wealth, or when in a state of being rich and also in poverty. So I should stay moderate no matter what I have. For us, I look and I even lie and fed and ask you for the blessings that never sees the pile. So I want a lot of blessings. And I don't want them to ever get interrupted they get interrupted or get stopped from me well as a

00:14:03--> 00:14:52

lukaku, rather than Katia and I asked you for the coolness of my eyes that never ends, to whatever gives me coolness of my eyes. Be at the at my family, so all lovelies make it never end for us I lugar with a brother and I asked you to make me pleased with your decree after the decree. So wherever I go through in my life, may Allah make it pleasing from I should be able to accept it hamdulillah well as a Luca bardella is Shiva idol mount. And I asked you for a life of ease comfort and tranquility after death. So Allah said covers dunya and akhira both the holder well as I look I love that another Isla watch it and I asked you for the delight of looking at your face your Allah

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

and the joy of meeting you will show the Elana fi for your way Ribeira mother within Voila.

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

Nothing mobile

00:15:01--> 00:15:50

and the joy of meeting you without any harm and misleading trials, so without any hurdles, so this should be a beautiful meeting. And the last two phrases Allahumma Xena, Xena, the EMA or Allah adorn us with the adornment of fate. Allah beautify us with this blessing of a man was your alumna who that mock daddy and make us from those who are guided and also the one who guide others Subhanallah such a beautiful There are even if you can memorize it, today's Friday, at least make it inshallah before you're before you're not gonna have time insha Allah This is an easy way to memorize our chunk for today. I Luca I asked you less than us, less than other sweetness of looking either to

00:15:50--> 00:16:14

watch with your face. Sorry, WA and you can write in here I show called the longing ILA towards your meeting bar colloquium. Everyone may like set this up from all of us. So this was made in the childhood by Mr. vinyasa, desert MANOVA and his years of Hannibal mo behind the guy shadow law in India and as the film cover it, really, as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa about a

00:16:20--> 00:16:26

long, long, long,

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

long, long, a long,

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

a long way.

00:16:40--> 00:16:45

A long, long, long,

00:16:50--> 00:16:53

00:17:20--> 00:17:22

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:17:47--> 00:18:06

are the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish rocklea Sabri were silly MD. workflow looked at a melissani of the holy along Matthew Colby quality was sadly Sani West roots of Hema Takagi Armenia O'Brien Ameen.

00:18:07--> 00:18:56

As we study the Quran, and we reflect over its meanings, and especially in the month of Ramadan, as we spend more time in the recitation of the Quran, our ultimate concern should be to really act upon the Quran that we follow its teachings, we learned that our Bucklin Mohammed bin Hussein Allah God said that when a person studies the Quran with comprehension and attention, then his only concern is to follow what Allah has commanded him with and to stop from what Allah has forbidden him from his concern is not when the surah will end. So our concern should not be every day that when is the surah going to end? When is this page going to end when we are reciting it? Rather, our focus should

00:18:56--> 00:19:42

be on deriving lessons that we can actually implement in our lives. So it is not correct that a person listens and appreciates or reads and appreciates the meanings of the Quran, but then nothing is reflected in their life. We learn that you have been sorry, the reported that are the Leben Massoud set to a certain men that you are in a time when men of understanding meeting fuqaha are many. And the and the reciters of the Quran are few meaning there aren't that many people who were who have memorized the entire Quran, or who recite a lot of the Quran. When the limits of behavior defined in the Quran are guarded and its letters are lost. Meaning Yes, there are people who who

00:19:42--> 00:19:52

don't know much of the Quran they have not memorized it, but at least they understand its message and they follow its teachings.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

He said when few people ask and many give when they make the prayer long and the hotbar short

00:20:00--> 00:20:49

put their actions before their desires, meaning you are in a very good time. Because now very soon a time will come upon men, when they're fuqaha. When there are people of understanding will be few, and their Quran reciters will be many. When the letters of the Quran are guarded carefully, meaning people will pay a lot of attention to reciting the Quran with perfection, but its limits are lost, meaning they don't really care about following the Quran. When many will ask, but few will give when they make the hotbar long but the prayer short and put their desires before their actions. We see that hasn't robustly said that by Allah reflecting upon the Quran is not the preservation of its

00:20:49--> 00:21:28

words, meaning it is not enough to just know what the words mean. While neglecting its set limits. There is one of them who says, I have recited the entire Quran, while nothing of the Quran can be seen in his character or action. So it is not enough for us to just read the Quran to understand its meanings. It is essential that the Quran is reflected in our character and in our actions. So we should focus on that also. And ask Allah subhanaw taala for tofik that he or Allah give me the ability to act upon this knowledge that I am gaining.

00:21:29--> 00:22:25

Just number 12 Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim woman in button fill out Li Illa Allah Allah hid his school her ye ar allama Mustafa raha WeMo dhara her cologne fi kitabi muy bien. And there is no creature on earth, but that upon Allah is its provision, and he knows its place of dwelling, and place of storage. All is in a clear register. We see that Allah subhanaw taala has created a great deal of diversity in his creation. Different kinds of creatures are scattered all over the earth, in the coldest regions, and in the hottest, there's creatures that live in the forests and deserts, in water, inside caves on mountains, and these creatures do not carry their food on their shoulders.

00:22:26--> 00:23:17

Allah subhanaw taala provides sustenance to all of them. As Allah says in the Quran, worker a human button, let the hamilo rescue her that there are so many creatures who do not carry their food. But it is Allah who yells Zuko, what a year come It is Allah who provides them and he also provides you, we see that every single creature has its own unique needs. Some creatures migrate great distances to reach their sustenance. And there are some that lie in wait for their sustenance to reach them. Allah subhanaw taala didn't just create the creation and abandon them, he has also created their sustenance that each creature is in need of. And just as the creatures are many and diverse, their

00:23:17--> 00:24:09

sustenance is plenty and diverse. So we see in this idea that it is upon Allah to provide every creature, meaning this is a responsibility, a promise that Allah subhanaw taala has made a responsibility that he has taken a guarantee that he's supposed to who gives, even though he is not obligated to do so. But out of his mercy and immense favor, he creates the creation and then provides them and guides each creature to its sustenance also. Now, if you think about it, if this is the case with animals, then what do you expect for the creation that Allah subhanaw taala has chosen Above all, meaning the human beings. So in this idea, we are being informed of a very

00:24:09--> 00:24:59

important fact a promise from Allah, that he provides every creature what it needs. And remember, the provision the sustenance for every creature was decided and decreed. Before even we entered the world. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that for the son of Adam, four things are already to create the Hulk the whole risk and agile and part of these and part of these four things is risk provision, meaning the provision is already decreed. Then it is said, Why are l'amour moussaka, raha Musto? Dara ha, that Allah knows the dwelling place of each creature on earth, meaning where it is going to be developed, which room and then must occur, meaning it's held

00:25:00--> 00:25:50

bittered its home, its nest or its burrow, wherever it lives. Allah subhanaw taala knows it. And he also knows it's most older, where it will rest, meaning the place where its body will be deposited after it dies. And if you think about it, these two things sometimes are completely hidden from the eyes of people. Only Allah subhanaw taala knows. So how vast and how complete is the knowledge of Allah soprano Tada. Kowloon v kitabi muy bien, all is in a clear register. So not only does Allah subhanaw taala know about this, but he has also recorded all of this in low Hill mouthfuls. So we should not worry about worldly provision. Our fear should not be about worldly provision, because

00:25:50--> 00:26:38

that is something guaranteed. What we need to worry about is the provision of the Hereafter, because that is conditional. Remember that the blessings of Allah upon people are of two kinds. First are blessings that are limited and restricted to this life, worldly things such as food, health, wealth, etc. And these blessings are for all types of people, regardless of their actions, some are given more, others are given less, some are given quickly, and others are given later. But this is something that is guaranteed that even if a person tries to avoid the provision that is written for him, it will still reach him. So this is why a person should not worry too much about worldly

00:26:38--> 00:27:26

provision. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that we're the son of Adam, run from His provision, the way he runs from death, his provision would reach him, just as death will reach him, meaning there is no avoidance. But the second kind of blessings. The second type of risk is though is that is that provision those blessings which are unlimited, which will never ever end? And these are the blessings of Jenna. But for them, one has to work, one has to strive with a man and with righteous deeds. So Allah subhanaw taala, has guaranteed worldly provision. So we should not obsess over too much. Yes, we have to exert the effort to acquire it. But our ultimate concern should not

00:27:26--> 00:28:14

be to make money here, our ultimate concern should be our home of the hereafter. Then it is said, well, who will lead the Holocaust summer work you will have, and it is he who created the heavens and the earth in six days, what can now sugar unelma, and his throne had been upon water, Allah subhanaw taala is informing us here of how he began the creation, that before even the creation of the skies and the earth, there was creation that Allah subhanaw taala already created. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that, first of all, there was nothing but Allah, and his throne was over the water. And he wrote everything in the book, and he created the heavens and the earth. Now

00:28:14--> 00:29:02

the purpose of this is not to inform us of the science of how things were created, because unfortunately, this is how some people take this verse that they try to start, you know, explaining scientific theories about the origin of the universe, etc. That is not the purpose of this verse. What we are being informed over here is of the fact that Allah created the creation in stages, gradually, with knowledge and with wisdom and giving it care and attention. So all of this is not haphazard and random, the process of creation is very deliberate, very thorough, very well planned. So how could it be that you, you are human beings were created for nothing? So why is it that we

00:29:02--> 00:29:54

were created, we are informed, Leah Beluga, calm or you can assign what Amala that he might test you as to which of you is best in deed? Meaning it is our actions which are being observed, what we do that is being checked, that who will do deeds that are best, and who will not? Now the question is, what are those deeds which are best? Remember that a deed is good, meaning it is good to Allah and in reality, something good when the intention behind it is good, and the manner in which it is done is also good? What is it that makes the intention good, when the action is done for the sake of the one who created you? And what is it that makes the manor good when it is done in a manner that the

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

creator approves of that Allah subhanaw taala has taught and that is the way

00:30:00--> 00:30:47

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But if you say, indeed you are resurrected after death, those who disbelieve will surely say, this is not but obvious magic, meaning they will refuse to believe. And if we hold back from them the punishment for a limited time, they will surely say what detains it, meaning they will mark unquestionably, on the day it comes to them, it will not be averted from them, and they will be enveloped by what they use to ridicule, meaning what they think is impossible right now, which is the punishment, it will certainly come upon them. Whether in other corner insert, I'm in no rush, Martin. So manners are now hamin in the hula, also in kofoed. And if

00:30:47--> 00:31:40

we give men a taste of Mercy from Us, and then we withdraw it from him, indeed, he is despairing and ungrateful. This is the state of people, that when a certain blessing is taken away, they despair, and they become very upset and very ungrateful. They have failed to see the blessings that they still have. They're only focused and upset about what they have lost, that why did this happen to me, but if we give him a taste of favor, after hardship has touched Him, He will surely say, bad times have left me meaning he will say, all my problems are gone, his expectations sore, indeed, he is exultant and boastful. So instead of showing gratitude, he becomes very arrogant. So most of the

00:31:40--> 00:32:33

time, we see that regardless of what the situation is, people are ungrateful, both in difficulty and in ease. The thing is, that nothing in this life is permanent, the day ends and the night also ends. So do good things, they come to an end, and difficulties also come to an end. And we see that in the night and day is if t laugh, meaning they alternate, and so do different situations in our lives. We see that when a person is going through difficulty, eventually there is ease, say a gr Lola who say a joke or Lula who bother asserting your straw that Allah will certainly bring about after hardship, ease, but many people get caught up in the moment, and they forget the big picture. The fact is,

00:32:33--> 00:33:27

that Allah subhanaw taala does not owe us anything, if he gives us remember, he does not have to, this is his favor and his generosity. So if he gives, he has the right to not give also, if he gives, he has the right to take away what he has given. And in any of these situations, he is not being unfair at all. So never take the blessings of Allah for granted. Never take good times for granted that I deserve these things. And that good things will always remain as they are, they should always remain as they are. And then do not despair in difficulties. That now I am Dude, that now I am doomed, or that God hates me and things like that. But thank Allah in every state and

00:33:27--> 00:34:23

remain humble before him in every state. Recognize that it is Allah who gives recognize that it is Allah who takes who withholds and He bestows. So majority of the people are ungrateful. whether things are easy, or they're tough. Elon larina Subaru, we're only in a slightly hat, Ola ecola Houma fill out on what a German Kebede except for those who are patient and do righteous deeds, those will have forgiveness and great reward. If you think about it, generally in the Quran, it is mentioned alladhina amanu, what are middle solly health, those who believe and do righteous deeds, but here in place of Ave, it is Subaru, that those who are patient, why? Because sobor is a man, patience is

00:34:23--> 00:34:59

faith. See, patience is to claim to Allah subhanaw taala it is to believe in Him, regardless of the circumstances. It is to believe that the blessing is from him and the trial is from him. It is to believe that my lord is Generous and Merciful, and he is wise and knowing. So I should neither despair, nor should I criticize his decision. And for everything, he has decreed a term so why despair. So just as good things and this difficulty will also end

00:35:00--> 00:35:58

So basically suburb patients is to wait out the storm is to know that this difficulty will also pass. So remember, he man is stubborn, and patience is with faith and suburb, we see that ala Latina suburu Whammy lasala hat, patience comes before righteous action, because without patience, a person cannot do much good. So people who are patient over loss, meaning they do not despair, nor do they become ungrateful, rather, they say, in that ilahi were in that era he Raji rune, that we belong to Allah, and to Him, we will return and they don't exalt in their blessings, but they remember Allah subhanaw taala, then such people are able to focus on Amazon solely on doing righteous action.

00:35:58--> 00:36:45

They're able to remember the purpose of life that we weren't sent here to enjoy good things. Yes, Alhamdulillah, Allah has provided blessings and we use them and we're grateful for them. But the purpose the objective of life is not to have a great time, the objective of life is to worship Allah subhanaw taala because Allah already informed us that He created us, and he put us over here in this world, why to test us as to which of us are good in deeds? And how is this test going to come if things always remain the same? So our circumstances are changed? Why, so that we are tested. And this is why it is necessary that both in good times, and in difficulty, we focus on normal tsali

00:36:45--> 00:37:21

regardless of our circumstances, we focus on worshipping Allah soprano Tada. So for such people, there is forgiveness and a great reward. Why? Because they surrendered to Allah, they were pleased with his decree. So Allah will also please them, then would you possibly leave out some of what is revealed to you? Or is your chest constrained by it? Because they say, Why has there not been sent down to him a treasure or come with him an angel, but you are only a warner and Allah.

00:37:23--> 00:38:11

But you are only a warner and Allah is Disposer of all things. The fact is that the words of people can in fact be very hurtful. Their judgment can be very discouraging, that at times, a person really feels like giving up. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he felt that way, that perhaps he you would leave out some of what is revealed to you, or at least you feel very uncomfortable, because of their criticism. So if the Prophet sallallahu earlier said and felt that way, we have a greater probability of feeling this way. But we see that this is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam felt at the beginning of prophethood. And over time, his resolve increased and this is

00:38:11--> 00:38:59

necessary. So he is reminded over here, that you are only a warner meaning you must focus on doing your job. And Allah is what keel over everything, he is the one who decides and this is something that gives so much consolation. You see, we have to learn to filter out the noise of undue criticism. Your concern should not be to get accepted by people, that they stop criticizing you, but it should be to do your job. And this is what the prophets of Allah whoever it is, and I was reminded of in Namah antenna, the you are only a warner. So keep warning. Or do they say he invented it, say, then bring 10 suitors like it that have been invented and call upon for assistance,

00:38:59--> 00:39:38

whomever you can besides Allah, if you should be truthful, and if they do not respond to you, far level and number on zero burial Mila, then you should know that the Quran was revealed with the knowledge of Allah and that there is no data except him than would you not be Muslims. You see, the Quran was revealed with the knowledge of Allah and this is the reason why there is nothing at all that can compete with the Quran. Because it was own Zilla berrimilla and this is why we should give it the most importance in our lives.

00:39:39--> 00:39:59

Man can you read will hire the dunya was enough to her whoever desires the life of this world and its adornments we fully repay them for their deeds they're in and they're there in will not be deprived, meaning those who seek only the world, the limited risk the limited provision

00:40:00--> 00:40:51

Then Allah subhanaw taala gives that to them, how much whatever that was written for them, neither more nor less. But then Allah iica levena lay Salah, whom Phil harati illa. Now, those are the ones for whom there is not in the Hereafter, but the fire. Why? Because the provision of the Hereafter is conditional. And they neither intended that provision, nor desired it, nor worked for it. And last is what they did they're in and worthless is what they used to do. Why because all of their efforts died in the world. This is the outcome of those who do not believe in the Hereafter, and only live for this world, that they will get something of this world, but then nothing in the hereafter. Why?

00:40:51--> 00:41:38

Because they never intended it, they never wanted it. And this is also the outcome of those people who show off who are doing good things, apparently righteous actions in the best of manners according to the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But the intention is not sincere. The goal is to seek the rewards of this world, what rewards that they get a good name, they develop a good reputation, that people praise them. So such people, yes, they will be praised in the world, they will get that reputation, but in the Hereafter, they will have no reward. In our heads, we learn that the first of people against whom judgment will be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection

00:41:38--> 00:42:26

will be a man who died as a martyr, he will be brought, and Allah will make known to him his favors, and the person will recognize them, he will acknowledge them, then Allah who will say, and what did you do about them, he will say, I fought for you, until I died a martyr, Allah will say you have lied, you did fight. But you did that it might be said of you that he is courageous. And so it was said, meaning you got your reward in the world, and then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face, until he is thrown in the fire of hell. And the same will be done with a person of knowledge and with a person who used to spend a lot in the way of Allah. So it is very important

00:42:27--> 00:43:00

that as we pay attention to the correct manner, we also pay attention to our intention, that why is it that we are doing these things? Remember, this world and everything in it, the great reputations that people have the great titles that they accomplish, and the praise that people offer them, all of that will come to an end, no matter how much it is. So aim for what is permanent, not what is temporary.

00:43:01--> 00:43:14

So is one who stands upon a clear evidence from his Lord. And this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who is truthful, and one who is confirmed, he was given clear evidence, knowledge revelation,

00:43:15--> 00:44:02

and a witness from Allah follows it, meaning there's visible evidence of his truthfulness, and that his his actions, his face showed that he was not a liar. And the Quran itself was a witness to his truthfulness. And before it was the scripture of Moosa to lead and as mercy. So revelation is not something new. Those meaning the people who recognize the evidence, believe the witness, they're the ones who believe in it, meaning on seeing the truth, they believe in the Quran. But whoever disbelieves in it from the various factions, the fire is has promised destination, so be not in doubt about it. Indeed, it is the truth from your Lord, but most of the people do not, do not

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

believe. So the truth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being established over here. You see some people, when they see the evidence, they see the truth, they accept it. And then there are other people who when they see the evidence, they see the truth, but they don't like it, they still reject it. So we need to see who are we and who is more unjust than he who invents a lie about Allah. How by associating partners with Allah, or ascribing to him what he has not said. Those will be presented before their Lord, and the witnesses will say, these are the ones who lied against their Lord. unquestionably, the curse of Allah is upon the wrongdoers what humiliation this will be.

00:44:45--> 00:44:59

Imagine facing the one you have lied against. And then there are witnesses also. And who is this this is Allah azzawajal, who has complete power and authority over people. So how could a person who has lied against a

00:45:00--> 00:45:50

Law ever, ever succeed? Who are these people? There are those who averted people from the way of Allah and sought to make it seem deviant. While they concerning the hereafter were disbelievers. Those were not causing failure to Allah on earth, nor did they have besides Allah, any protectors. For them, the punishment will be multiplied, they were not able to hear, nor did they see, those are the ones who will have lost themselves and lost from them is what they used to invent. assuredly, it is they in the hereafter who will be the greatest losers. So this is the outcome of leading people astray. And there are many who do this. They're astray. And they lead others astray. In alladhina

00:45:50--> 00:46:46

amanu, or amilo solly hats. Indeed, they who have believed and done righteous deeds were a harbor to Allah be him and humbled themselves to their Lord, Allah ecosse, horrible Jenna, those are the companions of Paradise, whom fee her Holly Dune, they will abide eternally, they're in. Remember that hubs is a long tract of ground that has become low and leveled. So it is soft, and compact, and easy to walk on, easy to drive and ride on. So they are back to meeting they lower and humble themselves before Allah, out of fear that is firm in their hearts. So they're consistently humble and obedient before Allah, they're not arrogant. And this is in complete contrast to the people that

00:46:46--> 00:47:32

are mentioned above, who deny clear evidence out of arrogance, and hinder people from the way of Allah. So the people who humble themselves before Allah, they're the ones who will have Jenna, the example of the two parties, which two parties, those who believe, and those who do not, is like the blind and deaf beening, a person who can neither see nor hear. So how will he learned, but remember, this is not physical disability. This is in fact, spiritual disability, because there are many who have eyes with which they can see who have ears with which they can hear. But they fail to see the truth, they fail to hear it. And the seeing and hearing meaning in contrast to this person is

00:47:32--> 00:48:19

someone who is able to see able to hear not physically but spiritually, are they equal in comparison? Not at all, then will you not remember? So who are you? Each person needs to see that when I learn of something from the truth, what is my response? When I hear good advice? What is my response? Now the stories of various prophets are mentioned. First, the story of no holidays Salaam. And we had certainly sent knew her they sent him to his people. And he said, Indeed, I am to you a clear Warner meeting, my warning is not ambiguous, that you not worship except Allah. Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a painful day. So the eminent among those who disbelief from his people

00:48:19--> 00:49:06

said, we do not see you but as a man like ourselves, you're just a human, how could you be a prophet, and we do not see you followed except by those who are the lowest of us. And at first suggestion, meaning it doesn't take long to realize that your followers are of the lowest in the society. And you know what, they're too impressionable, which is why they have believed you. And we do not see in you over us any merit. Rather, we think you are liars. Meaning we don't see that you are very wealthy, or that you have something special about you. So we think that you're lying. Remember that a prophet of Allah is to convey the message of Allah. But people always judged the

00:49:06--> 00:49:57

prophets of Allah, by superficial standards, that do they have money, or the followers or the supporters rich? The prophets came to offer hedaya guidance, not money. He said, Oh, my people have you considered, if I should be upon clear evidence, meaning I have firm knowledge, I have revelation from my Lord, while he has given me mercy from himself. Meaning this Prophethood is in fact, a mercy from Allah. But it has been made an apparent to you meaning you fail to see it because of your bias. Should we force it upon you while you are averse to it? How can I compel you to see what you're not even interested in? And oh my people, I asked not of you for any wealth. That's not my goal. So look

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

past this world. My reward

00:50:00--> 00:50:46

is not but from Allah. And I am not one to drive away those who have believed. You see, they demanded that the poor be removed from his company so that they could come and sit with him if he wanted them to hear his message. They didn't want to be even seen with those of lower social status. Indeed, they will meet their Lord, so know how they sit, I'm telling them that I cannot drive them away, they will meet their Lord, meaning Allah knows what their true status is, and that will become very visible and clear when they will meet Allah. But I see that you are a people behaving ignorantly remember that unfuckable? Well, Alina burdell, outwardly, Allah Allah, that real richness

00:50:46--> 00:51:03

and poverty is going to be after meeting Allah subhanaw taala after being held accountable by Allah subhanaw taala the richness that people have today, or the poverty that a person suffers from today, that is not permanent, nor is it real.

00:51:04--> 00:51:57

The real poverty and richness is in the hereafter. So at times, we begin to look down at individuals who don't have a lot of wealth. And sometimes we actually look down at ourselves if we don't make a lot of money. And if we don't have a lot of what you know, people a measure, measure the worth of people by so don't do that. Don't feel that you are less just because you have less of worldly blessings. And don't think in contrast that you are safe and that you are right, and that you are good. Just because you have a lot. The real status of a person will be determined in the hereafter based on their deeds, and all my people who would protect me from Allah. If I drove them away, then

00:51:57--> 00:52:45

will you not be reminded? Meaning Imagine if someone is loved by Allah subhanaw taala. And if we mistreat them, what would become of us? This is why we should be very careful when we mistreat individuals, when we mock them or when we belittle them. We don't in the Hadees Allah subhanaw taala says ma na da li Willa Yun faqad elven to who will help that I will declare war against him who shows hostility to a pious worshipper of mine. You know, sometimes we just develop this dislike for certain individuals, and there's no real justification for it. And we be little certain individuals, because we are jealous, or for whatever reason, but be careful. Because if this is a person who

00:52:45--> 00:53:35

worships Allah, who has faith, and you have enmity towards them, well, what if they're more beloved to Allah than you are? What if their deeds are more pleasing to Allah, so don't be an enemy, to the believers, with an akula comer in the hawza in Allah, and I do not tell you that I have the depositories containing the provision of Allah, or that I know the unseen, nor do I tell you that I am an angel, meaning I am not what you want me to be. Nor do I say of those upon whom your eyes look down, that Allah will never grant them any good. You don't see good in them, but I do. But still, I do not pass judgment on the future of people. Allah is most knowing of what is within their souls.

00:53:35--> 00:54:21

Indeed, I would then be among the wrongdoers. kalu, ya know, they said, Oh, no, you have disputed us and been frequent in dispute with us, meaning you have been arguing with us for so long, so panela they're the ones who raised all of these objections, and knew how they said I'm only responded. And when he responded when he spoke, they said you are arguing. So bring us what you threaten us, meaning we don't want to hear you anymore. Just bring about the punishment that you warned us off, if you should be of the truthful. He said Allah will only bring it to you. If he wills, it's not in my hand, and you will not cause him failure. You won't be able to escape them. And my advice will

00:54:21--> 00:54:59

not benefit you. Although I wish to advise you, if Allah should intend to put you in error, he is your Lord and to Him you will be returned. So remember, only that person is guided whom Allah subhanaw taala guides. This is why we should keep asking Allah subhanaw taala for guidance, or do they say he invented it meaning about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, if I have invented it, then upon me is the consequence of my crime. But I am innocent of what crimes you commit, meaning instead of just focusing on me, how about you reflect on yourself? We're all here ILA. No.

00:55:00--> 00:55:47

It was revealed to new that no one will believe from your people, except those who have already believed. So do not be distressed by what they have been doing wassenaar a full cabbie, are you Nina? Well, we're Hina and construct the ship, under our eyes, we are watching you. This is so comforting. You see, sometimes you're working so hard, and you're struggling, and you're all alone. So remind yourself, Allah is watching me, I am not alone. And our inspiration, meaning we will teach you and guide you, and do not address me concerning those who have wronged don't even intercede for them now, indeed, they are to be drowned. And he constructed the ship. And whenever and assembly of

00:55:47--> 00:56:35

the eminent of his people passed by him, they ridiculed him that now Oh, you're a carpenter, you're now a fisherman, or where's the sea? He said, If you ridicule us, then we will ridicule you, just as you ridicule, meaning in reality, you are being foolish, and you are going to know who will get a punishment that will disgrace him on earth, and upon whom will descend an enduring punishment in the hereafter. So we see that a lot of times, that was so we see that the Prophet of Allah was made fun of. And a lot of times this happens, that people who are following the religion of Allah, can they get made fun of the way they speak, or the way they dress or the way that they recite the Quran, or

00:56:35--> 00:57:25

the way that they're fasting every day, or that they're going to the masjid, etc. The prophets were marked at a lot, even though they were the best people, the best individuals from their communities. But people were unable to see the good in them, because of their own fault, not because the prophets were at fault. So what was the response of the prophets, they tolerated this painful mockery, they did not give up. Remember that the prophets of Allah were tested more severely. And part of how they were tested, was the ridicule of their own people. And so the people who are next in righteousness, meaning the more righteous a person is, the more he will be tested. And sometimes these tests are at

00:57:25--> 00:58:09

the hands of people where they make fun of you, they ridicule you. And sometimes what happens is that you just want to get away from everybody. You don't want to, you know, be around them. You don't want to be visible, you just want to be quiet, and stop telling people and perhaps stop practicing certain things also. But remember, it is better to be patient. Instead of cutting off from people. We learn in a Hadees that the believer who mixes with people, and bears their annoyance with patients will have a greater reward than the believer who does not mix with people and does not put up with their annoyance. So we see that the prophets of Allah, Yanni they had the greatest of

00:58:09--> 00:59:02

enemies, but those enemies eventually embraced Islam. Why? Because of the patience and the tolerance of the prophets of Allah. So don't take people's mockery to heart, don't get very offended by their ridicule, learn to filter out this noise. So it was until when our command came, and the oven overflowed a tunnel overflowed now to notice either a certain place or it was literally an oven from where the water first began to gush out. And that is how the flood began. We said load upon the ship of each creature to mates and your family, except those about whom the word has proceeded, and include whoever has believed, but none had believed with him, except if you know how to his Salaam,

00:59:02--> 00:59:59

preached for over 900 years. And yes, only a few people believed in him it is said only about 80 people or less believed in him. And even his own family, his own wife and his son, were of those who did not believe in him. How painful how difficult this must have been. So sometimes it happens that your effort is very, any very intense. You've been striving for very long, but you don't see a lot of good results. At least for now. You don't see it. But remember that the real result for the person who is seeking Allah is not in this world. The real result is where it isn't the hereafter. We'll call our kabu Fie ha and no set to them. Bismillah himadri hair we're mortal Sahaba that

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

embark there

01:00:00--> 01:00:49

In how Bismillah imagery in the name of Allah is its course, one mole of Sahar, and it's encouraged in Nabila photo Rahim indeed my lord is Forgiving and Merciful. So embark the ship. How? By taking the name of Allah, meaning say Bismillah why Bismillah because taking his blessing name brings a blessing in whatever it is that you are doing their safety, there is blessing and there is reward. And remember, it is the Sunnah of the prophets that they began doing important things by taking the name of Allah so we should also do the same. So we see here that no honey Salaam, when he's boarding the ship, he says Bismillah himadri. How Omarosa her in Nabila photo Rahim. In Hadees, we learned

01:00:49--> 01:01:36

about how when a person is that when a person gets on their mount, like on their vehicle, or or whatever means of transportation that they're using, at that time, also, they should say, Bismillah, and it was the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that whenever he did something important, he said Bismillah first. In fact, some people complained to him that yellow Sula, any we eat, but we don't feel satisfied. We eat our food, but we don't feel satisfied. So he said, perhaps you eat separately, eat together, meaning at the same time. And with Kuru smilla, he tala Ali mentioned the name of Allah upon it, what will happen, you bet it click on fee, you will have

01:01:36--> 01:02:17

blessing in it, then Allah will put blessing in it. Because remember, the name of Allah is very powerful. So when you mentioned the name of Allah, then there will be Baraka, and then there will also be protection. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when night falls, then keep your children close to you. Why because the child pains spread out. And then after some time, then you can let them go out and close the gates of your house at night. And mentioned Allah's Name. Meaning when you close the door, say Bismillah This is why when you enter the house, say Bismillah, when you close the door, say Bismillah Subhana. Allah, we have more reliance on Lysol

01:02:17--> 01:02:58

wipes than the name of Allah, we are so particular these days, that we will keep on cleaning over cleaning to the point that we are uni, we become obsessive. And yes, you should take precaution. But the best precaution that we can take is to take the name of a law. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, mentioned the name of Allah when you close the door and cover your utensils, and mentioned the name of a lot there. They're upon meaning even when it comes to food, when you're handling food when you're handling your dishes, and say Bismillah so when you bring groceries in? Yes, you you can you know if you start thinking about well, what if someone touched this apple? And

01:02:58--> 01:03:38

what if there is, you know, traces of the virus on it still any? If you start thinking about it in it, this would mentally drain you? Yes, of course you should wash the food. And yes, you should be careful when you go outside, but mentioned the name of Allah, take the name of Allah, and then put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala. So he said, mentioned Allah's Name upon it. And if you don't have anything to cover your, your dishes with, then you put something across it, meaning even if it's a spoon or something, but cover the dish, don't leave them open, especially at night. So for example, sometimes you know we have our water with us at night, and then we leave it open, this is

01:03:38--> 01:04:22

not right, cover it with something. Remember that Bismillah when you mentioned the name of Allah, this is a shield between you and the shaitan. We learn in a Hadees that the screen between the eyes of the jinn and the nakedness of the children of Adam, when one of you enters the area of relieving yourself meaning when you enter the washroom is to say Bismillah so when you say Bismillah then you are concealed from shaitan shaitan cannot harm you. He cannot see you. He cannot any do anything to bother you. So say Bismillah and protect yourself knew how to you sit down. Imagine he's entering the ship. There's a massive flood. People are drowning. And what is it that he tells his people

01:04:22--> 01:04:35

those who believed in him that say Bismillahi Madre how Omarosa her in Nabila, her photo Rahim and this is a dog that we should also say, when we board a ship or a plane or a vehicle, anything like that.

01:04:36--> 01:04:59

And it sailed with them through waves like mountains imagine so much water and no he called to his son, who was apart from them because he had not boarded the ship. He did not believe in knew how to his son. He's he said, All my son, come aboard with us and do not be with the disbelievers. But he said I will take refuge

01:05:00--> 01:05:52

on a mountain to protect me from the water, know how they sit on said there is no protector today from the decree of Allah except for whom he gives mercy law sliema yo mermin umbrella Illa Rahim and the waves came between them and he was among the drowned no holidays Salaam was trying to convince his son till the very end advising him that oh my son Yeah, boon a year, any please enter the ship and then you will be safe. But you see that when the son of the Prophet did not believe in Him, then his lineage did not save him. And this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that he who was made slow by his actions will not be speeded by his lineage. Meaning if you don't do good

01:05:52--> 01:06:44

yourself, then your blood will not save you. Your family cannot save you. You have to believe and do good yourself. And then secondly, we've seen this I have the response of new holiday Sam, when his son said, I don't need you, because I got the mountain. I don't need to come to you. I don't need to seek refuge where you're seeking refuge meeting with Allah subhanaw taala I'm going to handle this myself. I'm going to go and protect myself by climbing the mountain. Remember that no one is safe. unless Allah subhanaw taala saves them Lao simile, Yeoman Omri lay in Lama Rahim, worldly means are not enough to protect us. Because means only work when Allah subhanaw taala allows them to work. And

01:06:44--> 01:07:35

remember, Allah is not limited by the means, there are no means no precaution that we can take that is to, you know, by which we will avert the decree of Allah. No, if Allah subhanaw taala wishes to benefit someone, give them something, then nothing at all can can avert that benefit. And if Allah subhanaw taala decrees that someone should suffer from something, then again, no one can repel that either. So Allah I'll see my Leo moment amarilla the only person who is safe is the one on whom Allah subhanaw taala bestows His mercy. So it isn't necessary that we seek refuge with ALLAH against all evils, whether it is the evil of shape plan, or the evil of our knifes, or, you know the evil of

01:07:35--> 01:08:23

a certain disease or a virus or whatever it is, we need to seek refuge with Allah. Because remember, that when it is time for a person to die, then even if they're locked in a fortress they need, they will die. So real safety is with Allah. So seek it with him. What happened, and it was said, on Earth, swallow your water, and all sky, withhold your rain, and the water subsided, and the matter was accomplished. And the ship came to rest on the mountain of God. And it was said, away with the wrongdoing people and knew called to his Lord and said, My Lord, indeed My son is of my family. And indeed your promise is true. Meaning you said that my family would be saved. And you are the most

01:08:23--> 01:09:15

just of judges. I have no objection at your judgment. But I wonder how come my son was drowned? Kala ya know how in the who lay some in ethylic? He said, Oh, no, indeed, he is not of your family. He this shows us that the prophets of Allah were very compassionate individuals, any, they weren't hard hearted. They felt pain, they felt sad. Indeed, he is one whose work was other than righteous. So ask me not for that about which you have no knowledge, meaning you don't know what the reality of your son was, indeed, I advise you, lest you be among the ignorant. So we see here, that the only real permanent relationship that we have with people is through a man in Allah subhanaw taala. If we

01:09:15--> 01:09:59

believe and they believe, then and only then our relationship can be everlasting. And if someone does not believe that even if they're related through blood, this relationship will end with death, and then there will be permanent separation. And on the other hand, when there is a man, there is permanent connection. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the closest people to me on the day of judgment will be those who fear Allah and with the cone, whether they are close in lineage or not. Meaning even if they're not related to me, but because of their dacor they will be closest to me. So the real bond is the bond on

01:10:00--> 01:10:46

Have faith and piety. And then we see that children can be a source of contentment when when they're righteous. And in the hereafter also, there will be meeting meaning people will be together with their families, if parents and children both are righteous. So our concern when it comes to our children should be to raise them as righteous servants of Allah to teach them a man to the best of our ability and leave the rest with Allah subhanaw taala You know, sometimes we obsess over the physical health of our children, sometimes we obsess over their worldly education or their sports, it cetera, et all of these are good, but we should be equally In fact, we should be more concerned

01:10:46--> 01:11:38

about their Deen because that is what will keep our connection permanent. And that is when they will be a source of coolness and comfort for our eyes. But we also see over here that you can do your best but ultimately, guidance is in the hand of Allah only color or be in the aerobic, no holidays Salaam said, My Lord, I seek refuge in You from asking that of which I have no knowledge. He said, My Lord, I seek refuge in You from asking that of which I have no knowledge. And unless you forgive me and have mercy upon me, I will be among the losers so knew how to sell apologized. It was said oh no disembark insecurity from us, and blessings upon you, and upon nations descending from those who

01:11:38--> 01:12:21

are with you, but other nations have them, we will grant enjoyment, then there will touch them from us a painful punishment. So remember that knew how they said I was the first messenger. And then after this, and when and then when this flood came. Due halia Santa was the first messenger. And when this flood came, then all of the people who rejected Him who disbelieve who committed, who believed in idolatry, they were destroyed. So now it was only believers who inhabited the earth, but knew how they said I was told over here, that soon after you there will be nations. And some of those nations will believe and others will disbelieve

01:12:22--> 01:13:09

that is from the news of the unseen which we reveal to you. You knew it not neither you nor your people before this. So be patient. Indeed, the best outcome is for the righteous. So this was the first time that the Prophet salallahu Urdu center was given the story of new highly his Salaam, and what is the lesson here that Be patient just as he was patient, and remember that the good outcome is for who little motor pain, and to rod we sent their brother who they are to his son, and he said, All my people worship Allah, you have no deity other than Him, you are not but inventors have false hood, meaning when you worship other than Allah, this is false hood, all my people, I do not ask you

01:13:09--> 01:13:51

for it to any reward. My reward is only from the one who created me, then will you not reason, meaning I have no hidden agenda over here, and all my people, ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him, He will send rain from the sky upon you in showers and increase you in strength, adding to your strength, and do not turn away of being criminals. These are the benefits of seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. You see, one of the first things that we should teach people is to seek forgiveness from Allah, and also teach them how to do so. This is something that we should teach children also, we learned that when a person would come to the Prophet sallallahu

01:13:51--> 01:14:12

alayhi wa sallam asking him that how he should make Dora the Prophet sallallahu where it is, and we'll teach him to say, say Allah humo fiddley we're how many were howdini or zucchini? Very simple and short the Allahumma COVID li or Allah forgive me, what? How many have mercy on me? What did he guide me? What zucchini and provide me?

01:14:13--> 01:14:59

They said Oh, who'd you have not brought us clear evidence. And we are not wants to leave our gods on your sessile nor are we believers in you. We only say that some of our gods have possessed you with evil Subhana Allah. People said to him, that we think that you are possessed. We think that you have gone crazy, Something terrible has happened with you. He said Indeed, I call Allah to witness and witness yourselves that I am free from whatever you associate with Allah, meaning I am in my senses, there is nothing that is wrong with me, other than Him, so plot against me altogether, then do not give me rest bite so he openly challenged them. He said Indeed, I have relied upon Allah, my

01:14:59--> 01:15:00

Lord and your Lord.

01:15:00--> 01:15:46

There is no creature, but that he holds its forelock. Every creature is in the control of Allah. Indeed, my lord is on a path that is straight. And we should remember that now see it be a dick that Oh my Lord, my NASA, my forelock is also in your hand, meaning you have complete control over my life, this is why I surrender to you, and I trust in You. But if they turn away, say, I have already conveyed that with which I was sent to you, my Lord will give succession to people other than you, and you will not harm him at all. Indeed, my lord is over all things, guardian. And we see this that one generation after the other, any, you know, they replace each other in the world, and no people

01:15:46--> 01:16:35

can cause harm to Allah. And when our command came, we saved who'd and those who believed with him by Mercy from Us, and we saved them from a harsh punishment. Again, we see that there is no salvation, no safety, no protection. Without Allah's mercy, be my team Mina. It is not your own work your own effort that can save you in this world, and beers, and it is not your work or your effort that can save you in the hereafter either. We do our part, we have to do what is within our ability, but we have to understand that it is not our actions that can protect us It is Allah who protects. It is not our actions that will admit us into Jenna. It is Allah's mercy that will admit people into

01:16:35--> 01:17:20

Jenna, this is why we should ask Allah for his mercy. And that was odd, who rejected the signs of their Lord and disobeyed His messengers and followed the order of every obstinate tyrant. Meaning they left what the Prophet told them, and followed what the worldly people said, what the tyrants told them to do, and such tyrants Jabarin or need in a Hadees we learn that such people will be in hell. And they were therefore followed in this world with a curse, and as well on the Day of Judgment, unquestionably denied their Lord, then away with God, the people of who'd, and to the mood. We sent their profit slowly, early his Salaam, notice how a prophet is called a brother of his

01:17:20--> 01:18:06

nation, because he was from his nation. And the end there people knew their profit from before he was not a stranger. He said, Oh, my people worship Allah, you have no data other than Him, He has produced you from the earth and settled you in it, ask forgiveness of him, and then repent to him. Indeed, my lord is an evil mujeeb My Lord is near and he is responsive. A huge misconception is removed over here. You see some people, they assume that they're so sinful and so distant from Allah subhanaw taala that even if they call upon Him, they will never be heard and they will never be forgiven. But remember, Allah is corrib he is near he is Mujib. He is responsive. But what is

01:18:06--> 01:18:49

mentioned before kariba Mujib, that first ofuro seek forgiveness from him and repent to him. So when you feel very distant from Allah subhanaw taala How do you cover those distances by seeking forgiveness by repenting to Allah subhanaw taala so make Toba make us default, ask Allah for forgiveness, and these days and hamdulillah that you're up at the time of servitude, that is the perfect time to seek forgiveness, because that is the time when Allah subhanaw taala invites people that is there anyone who will seek forgiveness from me so that I will forgive him. But unfortunately, we spend this time either, you know, on our phones, or we are watching TV, or we are

01:18:49--> 01:19:36

just talking amongst themselves, or we're so groggy, any whatever it is that you're doing, as you're preparing food, or you know, you're you're you know in the kitchen, etc, say a staff ferula say a staff it again and again. They said also earlier, you were among us a man of promise before any what has happened to you. What have you started now, we had such great expectations of you and you've become so religious. Do you permit us to worship what our fathers worshiped? And indeed We are about that to which you invite us in disquieting doubt. This is what happens when a person rejects the truth after knowing it, that they are in a doubt, that takes away their peace of mind. They're

01:19:36--> 01:19:59

constantly restless. You see, the heart is not just you know a a lump of flesh. Allah subhanaw taala has created the heart as a monitor. Meaning it tells you it tells you that this is wrong or this is good. For example, if you have the opportunity. So for example, if somebody asks you for a glass of water

01:20:00--> 01:20:40

And you say no, then what will happen later on you will feel bad that, oh, I could have given it. But then you justify it that, oh, I have to teach them a lesson that they shouldn't just always be asking me, and I'm not their servant. But why is it that you're justifying it to yourself? Why is it that you're consoling yourself? because deep down, you do feel bad. So this is a fact that when a person rejects the truth, when a person rejects what is right, then there's a discomfort in the heart. This is why I said, it's tough to call back. Ask your heart, even if people give you fatawa, you check with your heart? Does it settle well with you? And the thing is that when it doesn't

01:20:40--> 01:21:25

settle well with us, that is when we go ask people, why? Because we want them to give us permission. We want to hear someone agree with us that yes, what you did was okay. He said, All my people have you considered if I should be upon clear evidence from my Lord, and He has given me mercy from himself, who would protect me from Allah if I disobeyed him, so you would not increase me except in loss. And all my people, this is the she camel of Allah, she is to you a sign a miracle, because that candle was not born as a normal candle is it actually came out from a mountain because that is what they demanded. They said, if you're a prophet, show us a miracle, and show us this. And that's

01:21:25--> 01:22:09

exactly what happened. So he said to them, let her feed upon Allah Earth and do not touch her with harm, or you will be taken by an impending punishment. But that camel would actually drink a lot of water. So they got fed up, and they hamstrung her, but they have stronger they killed the camel. So he said, enjoy yourselves in your homes for three days. That is a promise not to be denied. So we see that they were given another warning, if final warning, openly that you have three days, they were given another chance. But still, they did not benefit from it. Now we see that only one man among them killed the camel, but everyone was guilty of it. Why? Because they approved of it. They

01:22:09--> 01:22:55

wanted it they supported him. Remember the least of faith is that you disapprove What is wrong in your heart. Even if you cannot actually stop it with your hands or your words, you believe it is wrong. But when you but but when a person likes what is wrong, even if they don't have a share in it, they're equally responsible, they're equally guilty. So when our command came, we saved slowly, and those who believed with him by Mercy from Us, and save them from the disgrace of that day. Indeed, it is your Lord, who is the powerful, be Exalted in Might, and the shriek sees those who had wronged and they became within their homes, corpses fallen prone, meaning just as a bird lands on

01:22:55--> 01:23:45

its chest, they also were on their chests, meaning they were laying lifeless, fallen upside down on their faces, as if they had never prospered. They're in unquestionably similar, denied their Lord, then away with some old, they lived lives of prosperity that were very well settled. But one earthquake was enough to destroy them. So we see here, that one nation after the other is being mentioned. And we see the pattern being repeated, that the Prophet is clear in his message, but the people in their bias and their hatred, refuse to accept it there. They're not willing to accept the truth because it requires them to change to change what they're doing. And then we see that people

01:23:45--> 01:24:33

are given warning, but they don't even take that seriously. And this is something that we need to pay attention to. You see when Allah subhanaw taala put some tribulation on people. This is not a time of mockery, and making fun. This is a time of observing humility and fear before Allah subhanaw taala so any light humor it's understandable, but always making fun of Oh Coronavirus joke this and that joke, any, this is not appropriate. We're not supposed to be mocking at this predicament. We're supposed to be humbling ourselves before Allah. So we see that these nations they marked again and again, they did not benefit from the warnings that they were given. And then eventually, their time

01:24:33--> 01:24:43

came to an end with every other Billa and certainly did Our Messengers come to Ibrahim with good tidings, good news. What was the good news that they brought

01:24:44--> 01:24:59

along time had passed and Ibrahim Ali Salaam had no children, and he wanted to have children. So they brought the good news of a son. They said Salaam because Salam is the Hey mo Baraka it's a blessing greeting. He said salah and did not delay in bringing them

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

roasted calf Subhanallah people are coming to his house. He doesn't know them. He doesn't know why they have come. They just say Salaam and Ibrahim alayhis salam immediately brings the food that he has. So what does he do? He serves his guests. So remember, there are some etiquettes of serving guests that we can learn from this idea that first of all, serve guests immediately Don't delay that people have come and other sitting and waiting and it's been two hours and even the appetizers have not been given any This is not fair. This is not right. When a guest comes then serve immediately, sometimes we delay by asking, would you eat Would you like to eat? And then if you do want to eat

01:25:44--> 01:26:26

what is it that you would like to eat and if someone has come they have come to your house, not a restaurant, so bring them what you have. If it is time to eat, then serve what you have. We learned that Ibrahim on his son I was a first host meaning he was the first person to actually host guests in the that the first person to host guests we learnt in a Heidi's was Ibrahim Arneson he was truly a leader. Then we see that serving guests generously as a part of Amen. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said whoever believes in Allah in the last day should honor his guest. And the guest deserves to be served. He said, What in the lizo riccar. Laika Huck, your visitor has a right upon you. So

01:26:26--> 01:27:12

whatever you have, just bring it. Sometimes what happens is that we don't bring anything we don't serve anything. Why? Because it's not perfect. No, because law hire a female lawyer, you leave there is no good in the person who does not host his guests well, meaning whatever you have, just bring it and be hospitable. According to your ability. Do not burden yourself. Don't bear to cut loose by, you know, serving a whole lot of variety of foods. Ibrahim already said I'm just served one thing, meat that was it. So it is not permissible that a person takes on a burden that they cannot bear and they become pretentious. This is something that is disliked remodel de la Horne who said new Hina I

01:27:12--> 01:27:16

need to call off, we were forbidden from being pretentious.

01:27:17--> 01:27:57

But when he saw their hands not reaching for it, meaning he saw that they were not eating the food, he distrusted them and felt from them apprehension, apprehension, because obviously any if you offer something to someone and they don't accept it, you're gonna feel like what's wrong with me or with them? Or they don't trust me, why is it that they don't trust me or they or maybe they have come with a bad intention? Because you see, a friend accepts your generosity, they don't reject it. So they said, fear not. We have been sent to the people of Lucca, meaning we are angels, and we have been sent to carry out a loss command over there. And his wife was standing and she smiled. Then we

01:27:57--> 01:28:44

gave her good tidings of his help, and after his help yaku Why? Why did she smile because she was relieved. And so at that she was given good news. She said Well, to me, shall I give birth? Well, I am an old woman. It is at that she was very old at this point. And this My husband is an old man. Indeed, this is an amazing thing. So panela Yes, she was an old woman. And she was being given the news of a child. Ibrahim and his son was also very old. Remember, this is from Allah Sophia, that even in old age, a person is sometimes able to do what typically young people do. And out of all the things what is truly a privilege is that a person is able to worship Allah, even in old age. So make

01:28:44--> 01:29:27

the offer that they said, Are you amazed at the decree of Allah? May the mercy of Allah and His blessings be upon you, or people of the house? Indeed, he is praiseworthy and honorable. And yes, the blessings of Allah and His mercy continue to descend on the family of Ibrahim till today because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was from his descendants. And every time that we say Aloma Sunday, Allah Muhammad Ali Muhammad conocer. Later on Abraham, we're at an early Ibrahim in Mecca. homido Marine, Ibrahim Hassan has mentioned and when the fright had left Ibrahim, meaning once he realized that Okay, these are angels, I don't need to worry what happened and the good tidings had

01:29:27--> 01:29:59

reached him the good news of his son, he began to argue with us concerning the people have looked amazing. This is a penny. These words represent who a believer is, a believer is happy with the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given them but a believer is also concerned for others, concerned for humanity. Ibrahim, Sam received two types of news at the same time, one good one personal and one

01:30:00--> 01:30:48

Bad which was not technically related to him. But we see that yes, he was happy about the good news. But then he didn't just care about himself only the let me just celebrate and enjoy. No, he began arguing with Allah, meaning pleading to Allah. Regarding Gu, regarding the people have loot that they should not be punished. They should be given some more time. Allah explains in Ibrahim la halimun a where Han muneeb. Indeed, Ibrahim was for bearing, grieving and frequently returning to Allah. This was the character of Ibrahim alayhis, salaam. You see haleem is a person who is very tolerant, a person who does not get angry very quickly. A person who is not quick to take revenge

01:30:48--> 01:31:34

from the one who has wronged him. A wow is a person who is concerned for all so he's constantly calling upon Allah, because he he grieves in his heart, and muneeb constantly turning to Allah with love with devotion with prayer with obedience. But the first quality that is mentioned over here is haleem. Because this is truly a great quality, Ibrahim RN is Salaam was very good mannered, he would not get annoyed and riled up at the ignorance of the ignorant. So he said he was pleading over here that the people of loot should be given more time. The angel said, Oh, Ibrahim, give up this plea. Indeed, the command of your Lord has come this is a final decision. And indeed, there will reach

01:31:34--> 01:32:11

them a punishment that cannot be repelled. You see, the people of Luther and his son were committing a crime, a sin that no one before them had done. Remember that when it comes to rectal intercourse, because this was homosexuality rectal intercourse is something that is unlawful between men and men and between men and women. in Hades we learn we learn Maroon man Walker Allah behemoth in Maroon on Manami anomala Cami loop that cursed is the person who does the action of the people of Luth. So it is very simple.

01:32:12--> 01:32:53

Allah subhanaw taala has set this boundary. Just as we cannot eat everything that we want, we cannot drink everything that we want. Even when it comes to such relationships, there is a boundary. So this is something not permissible within marriage. And it is also not permissible outside of marriage, this act itself is forbidden. And when Our Messengers meaning the angels came to North isrm, he was anguished for them and felt for them great discomfort and said this is a trying day. And as people came hastening to him, why because the angels came in the form of men. And before this, they had been doing evil deeds. He said, Oh my people, these are my daughters, meaning if you

01:32:53--> 01:33:35

really want to satisfy your desire, do it the right way. They're pure for you. So fear Allah, and do not disgrace me concerning my guests. Is there not among you a man of reason, a man of reason meaning someone who is sensible and confident who can do what is right and even tell others to do what is right. They said, You have already known that we have not concerning your daughter's any claim, you know that we have no interest in women. They said this outright, that as men, we do not like women, we don't feel attracted to them. And indeed, you know what we want, meaning you know that we find men attractive. He said, If only I had against you some power or could take refuge in a

01:33:35--> 01:34:22

strong support. You see shahadat desires are in human beings. And shaitan really plays with our desires, any sometimes there are things which are unlawful, but shaitan makes them very attractive to us. And then there are things which are lawful, but shaitan makes them attractive to us. See, Allah subhanaw taala has made Islam very easy and practical. A person is not guilty for their feelings of attraction. What they are responsible for is their actions. If a person is not able to get married, it does not mean that they can make zinna lawful for themselves. And just like that, if a person does not find the opposite gender attractive, they cannot even think about getting married,

01:34:23--> 01:34:59

then it doesn't mean that they make this sin lawful for themselves. The essence of Islam is submission and surrender to Allah. And earlier we learned that the reward for a person is in proportion to the effort that they're putting in. The angel said, Oh Lord, indeed we are messengers of your Lord. Therefore they will never reach you. So set out with your family during a portion of the night and let not any among you look back except your wife. Indeed. She will be struck by that which strikes them indeed their appointment is for the morning. is not the morning near

01:35:00--> 01:35:51

So we see here, that the wife of Lutheran Islam, even though she was married to a prophet, that marriage was not enough to save her. Why? Because she approved of the sin, she supported it, even though she herself did not commit it. Any, this is something so important for us to understand. We cannot call what is unlawful to be lawful, we cannot call what Allah has declared a sin to be something good. Okay, if people want to choose it, that's their decision, but we cannot change the law of Allah. And if we cannot stop people, because we're not in a position to do that, or we cannot, you know, stop them verbally in any way whatsoever. Because certain sometimes there are

01:35:51--> 01:36:38

those limitations, then, the least we are required to do as believers is to dislike What is wrong in our hearts. This is the least that that is required of us. So when our command came, we made the highest part of the city its lowest, and rained upon them stones of layered hard clay, which were marked from your Lord will so women are in the Robic and Allah's punishment is not from the wrongdoer is very far. So there were literally turned upside down. We learned that they were lifted up by debris or a salmon thrown back down. And this punishment came upon them early in the morning. Why? Because a lot of times, people who follow their desires, their habit is that at night, they

01:36:38--> 01:37:20

will waste their time, fulfilling pursuing their desires. And in the morning, when it is time for Baraka, that is when they sleep, that is when they're most negligent. So that is when the punishment came upon them. So what is the lesson here, that Oh, Prophet, you Be patient, the the good outcome, and the help of Allah is with the prophets of Allah, the next story and to Medina and we sent their brother sure aid, he said, Oh, my people worship Allah, you have no deity other than Him, and do not decrease from the measure and the scale. Indeed, I see you in prosperity. But indeed, I fear for you the punishment of an all encompassing day, we see that the Prophet of Allah, sure, I've already

01:37:20--> 01:38:02

said, I'm just like the other prophets, they brought, he brought the same message, what was that message of no hate, that worship only Allah. And remember, this is the most important thing in our lives, because we were created for the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is why we should give utmost importance to Reba. Reba comes first, and everything else comes secondary. So these days, also, focus on your fast on your PM, on your Salah, on your T dolla. And then when you're done, then Okay, take some time to do other things. But your focus should be on everybody. Now, of course, this doesn't mean that your family is being neglected, because that is also your obligation.

01:38:02--> 01:38:45

I'm talking about the things that we do to you know, take a break, like for example, we spend time on social media. So that should come after our ibadah not before. And secondly, we see that the prophets of Allah, they also called out the wrong things called out on the wrong things that their nations were doing the specific evil that was common in them, the prophets of Allah pointed those things out and stopped people from them. And all my people give full measure and weight in justice and do not deprive the people of their due meeting, when you owe something to people give them in full, whether it is by weight or by measure by number and do not commit abuse on the earth spreading

01:38:45--> 01:39:34

corruption. We learnt in the Hadees that when people continue to cheat in weight and measure, then what will happen they will be struck with famine, severe calamity and oppression of their oppression of their rulers. He said what remains lawful from Allah is best for you, if you would be believers, but I am not a guardian over you. Meaning what is little, but it is lawful, that is far more blessing and beneficial than what may be a lot but is acquired through unlawful means. Sometimes what happens is that what is unlawful seems so tempting. Why? Because it seems so accessible. Or it seems like you know that this is all we want, and this is a better deal. No, just because it seems

01:39:34--> 01:39:59

like a better deal. It doesn't mean it will actually be better for you. Because remember, what is unlawful is void of blessing. And when there is no blessing in when there's no Baraka in something, then no matter how much it is, you will not be able to enjoy it. And even if you do get to enjoy some of it in this life, that enjoyment will be temporary. It will not make it to the hereafter well

01:40:00--> 01:40:47

A person earns money through lawful means and enjoys it in a lawful way that you know what? They're rewarded for it. And so the blessing the reward will become permanent because of that. And when a person earns through unlawful means, then there's our the ARB upon or the ARB upon either in this life and in the next. And remember, what is decreed for you will reach you. Your test is in how you acquire it. They said, Oh, sure, he does your prayer command you that we? He they said, Oh, sure, he does your prayer command you that we should leave what our fathers worship Subhanallah they were taunting him mocking, mocking him for his Salah. And a lot of times people begin to accuse, you

01:40:47--> 01:41:30

know, religion or not? Or is it that we should not do with our wealth? What we please meaning Why are you telling us how we should, you know, deal with our wealth, how we should earn our income, etc. And this is what a lot of people like to do. They like to separate religion, from worldly life. They want religion to be just in the masjid, that's it, just in Ramadan. And, and the rest of the time they want to do whatever they want, however they want. They said, Indeed, you are the forbearing the discerning This is sorry, sarcasm, that you are so forbearing that now you cannot even tolerate how we earn our money, you want to tell us how to earn our money, call a comb, he

01:41:30--> 01:42:03

said, All my people have you considered if I am upon clear evidence from my Lord, and He has provided me with a good provision from him, and I do not intend to differ from you, in that which I have forbidden you I only intend reform as much as I am able, and my success is not but through Allah upon him I have relied and to him, I returned, and all my people, let not your dissension from me cause you to be struck by that similar to what struck the people of North or the people of who'd or the people of Somalia, and the people of loot are not from you far away.

01:42:05--> 01:42:51

Take lesson from history and ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to him. Indeed, my lord is Rahim wa dude, merciful and affectionate. You see, every prophet urged his nation to turn to Allah, seek forgiveness, Repent, and look at how they gave hope. My lord is what I am and what dude, who is what Dude, what dude means two things. First of all, one who loves so Allah loves his prophets, his messengers, his righteous servants. And what dude also means one who is loved, meaning he deserves to be loved. And he is loved by the believers, you hit boom, where you have boonah? Who? So this is two sided love. But what was their response? They said, Oh, sure, if we do not understand much of

01:42:51--> 01:43:33

what you say it's too complicated. But was it really complicated was simple message. And indeed, we consider you among us as weak. And if not for your family, we would have stoned you to death and you were not to us one respected, we don't really care about you. He said all my people, is my family more respected for power by you than Allah, meaning you care about my family, not Allah subhanaw taala you see the people of McCall so they feared the family of the Prophet sallallahu, reducing his uncle obatala but you put him behind your backs in neglect? How dare you? Indeed my lord is encompassing of what you do, and all my people work according to your position, indeed, I am

01:43:33--> 01:44:18

working, you are going to know to whom will come a punishment that will disgrace Him and who is a liar. So watch. Indeed I am with you, a watcher awaiting the outcome. And when our command cave, we save your aid, and those who believed with him, by Mercy from Us notice how this fact is mentioned again and again. Only the one on whom is Allah's mercy is safe in this world and in the Hereafter, and the shriek seized those who had wronged and they became within their homes, corpses fallen prone, as if they had never prospered they're in then away with muddy and as smooth was taken away. And we certainly sent Moosa with our signs and a clear authority to fit our own and his

01:44:18--> 01:44:42

establishment, but they followed the command of our own and the command of our own was not at all discerning It was not right at all. He will proceed his people on the Day of Resurrection and lead them into the fire and wretched is the place to which they're LED. What a contrast for their own will lead people into the fire and his wife ESEA will actually be the leader of the women in Jenna, what a difference.

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

What ought to be roofie her the healer and attend well Mel piano and they were followed in this world with a curse and on the Day of Resurrection and wretched is the gift which is given. That is from the news of the cities which we relate to you of them. Some are still standing

01:45:00--> 01:45:47

There remains are there today, and some are as a harvest mowed down, and we did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves and they were not availed at all by their gods which they invoked other than Allah, when there came the command of your Lord, and they did not increase them in other than ruin, and thus is the seizing of your Lord when he seizes the cities while they're committing wrong. Indeed, his seizing is painful and severe. Meaning when Allah sees as a people for their wrongdoing, then that is truly painful and severe lahoma in Nana's local raffia. Indeed, and that is a sign for those who fear the punishment of the hereafter meaning this is happening in the world. Imagine the

01:45:47--> 01:46:37

hereafter imagined the Day of Judgment, that is a day for which the people will be collected. And that is a day which will be witnessed, and we do not delayed except for a limited term. It's not far the day it comes, no soul will speak except by his permission, and among them will be the wretched and the prosperous, as for those who were destined to be wretched, they will be in the fire for them there in his violent exhaling and inhaling. The Hellfire is a noisy place, there are loud screaming disturbing noises. People will hear the terrible noises of hell, and of each other loud noises of inhaling exhaling out of agony because of the severe punishment. And remember Loud Sound is also a

01:46:37--> 01:46:52

way of torture. It can be very painful to hear people screaming, their own voices will be like the brain of donkeys. They will be abiding there in as long as the heavens and the earth and your except what your Lord should will.

01:46:53--> 01:47:33

Indeed your Lord is an effector of what he intends. And as for those who are destined to be prosperous, they will be in paradise abiding therein as long as the heavens and the earth and your except what your Lord should will, a bestowal uninterrupted in a Hades we learned that when the people of Paradise have reached paradise, and the people of hell have also reached hell. And announcer will announce that all people have fire, there is no death for you, you will remain here forever. And all people have Jenna, there is no death for you, you will remain here forever. So Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Do not be in doubt as to what these polytheists are worshipping.

01:47:34--> 01:48:16

They worship not except as their as their fathers worshiped before, meaning they're only blindly following without any evidence, and indeed, we will give them their share on diminished and we had certainly given most of the Scripture, but it came under disagreement, just as the Quran is today. And if not for a word that proceeded from your Lord, it would have been judged between them, meaning Allah would have immediately punished the people who denied and indeed they are concerning the Quran in disquieting doubt. And indeed, each of the believers and disbelievers your Lord will fully compensate them for their deeds indeed he is acquainted with what they do first the Pim so remain on

01:48:16--> 01:49:05

the right course. Come out, Oh, Mr. As you have been commanded woman, tada, Mark, and those who have turned back with you, and do not transgress Indeed, he is seeing of what you do. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is being commanded to remain firm, that no matter what you must not give up, while our total Kanu Elan larina mo, and do not incline toward those who do wrong. You see, rakuen is too inclined towards someone with love. So do not approve of their wrong actions, do not be accepting of their crimes. Why? lest you be touched by the fire and you would not have other than Allah any protectors, then you would not be held helped or acclaimed as solid and established prayer

01:49:05--> 01:49:52

at the two ends of the day, and at the approach of the night. These are the five daily prayers. Why pray? Because in Al Hassan at you the heaviness say he had indeed good deeds, do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember. So we see that it's the farm seeking forgiveness. Yes, it's supposed to be verbal, but we also seek forgiveness from Allah, how by doing good deeds, and especially has an add what is their benefit you the hibino say he, they removed since we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the example of the person who commits sins and then performs good deeds is like that of a man on whom is a tight deter. deter is a is a shirt of chain

01:49:52--> 01:50:00

mail, which is reaching up to his throat so it's really tight, but when he performs good deed, one link breaks when he performs.

01:50:00--> 01:50:19

Another good deed another link breaks until all of it falls to the ground and he is free in the house and as you Hybels say, this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that follow a bad deed with a good one. And what is and what is the good deed going to do? Dumb whoever it is going to erase the sin.

01:50:21--> 01:51:02

And especially because this has mentioned after Salah, remember, Salah is a means of forgiveness of sins, we learn in the Hadees that whoever does will do like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made will do, and then he prays Salah, so he prays, load, then whatever sins he committed since budget will be forgiven, then when he prays also, that all the sins that he committed since Lord will be forgiven. Then when he prays, motive, then whatever sins he committed since month, since also will be forgiven, and so on and so forth. So every next prayer is a means of forgiveness for all the sins that were committed between it and the previous prayer, because in the lesson at you

01:51:02--> 01:51:48

the heaviness say he was made and be patient, for Indeed, Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good. So why so why were there not among the generations before you those of enduring discrimination forbidding corruption on Earth, except a few of those we saved from among them, but those who wronged pursued what luxury they were given, they're in and they were criminals. So Allah subhanaw taala is demanding that there must be some people who forbid corruption in the land. And your Lord would not have destroyed the cities unjustly. While there people were reformers. So as long as people are, people are reforming themselves, then they're safe. And if your Lord had

01:51:48--> 01:52:31

willed, He could have made mankind one community, but they will not cease to defer, he could have taken away their freewill but that is not the way of Allah except whom your Lord has given mercy in lamb Allah hemara book, they will be on guidance. And for that he created them, meaning he created people for for test to test them with their freewill, that what is it that they're going to choose to do, but the word of your Lord is to be fulfilled, that I will surely fill Hell with jinn and men altogether. Meaning even if all people rebel, that hell has a lot of room in it. And each story we relate to you from the news of the messengers is that by which we make firm your heart man who thug

01:52:31--> 01:53:13

b2b, hateful adeq This is the reason for mentioning these stories, that you realize that you're not alone in your striving and your difficulty, that you're not the first person to struggle. There are so many examples before. So stories are definitely very comforting. And this is why these are stories that we should share with one another and especially These are stories that we should teach children and their has come to you in this the truth and an instruction and a reminder for the believers. So hold on to the truth and say to those who do not believe work according to your position, indeed we are working and wait indeed we are waiting and to Allah belong the unseen

01:53:13--> 01:53:42

aspects of the heavens and the earth. Allah knows at all and to Him will be returned to the matter, all of it for our Buju so worship him what's the local IRA and and rely upon him warm out of buka below fill in on matar Malone, and your Lord is not unaware of that which you do. So every effort that you make every moment of your struggle of your patience, Allah knows about it. So don't fear and don't grieve and expect the best from your Lord.

01:53:43--> 01:54:31

The next is Surah to use of solitude, which has the stories of the prophets. The message of solitude is remain firm, be patient, the good outcome is for you, and Allah is with you. He will not let you go waste as his help was with the previous prophets when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah's help will also be with you and unsuited use of the messages that know that the outcome of patients is good. And when you are being patient, when you're going through different trials in your life, things don't always make sense. You don't always get it that what is happening, and why is it happening? But you focus on what you have to do and leave the outcome to Allah and Allah will create

01:54:31--> 01:54:59

the best results for you. So what is the surah Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim le of lamb rah, these are the verses of the clear book. Indeed, we have sent it down as an Arabic hold on that you might understand, meaning Allah subhanaw taala chose the Arabic language for the Quran. Why? Because it is only Arabic that could contain the meaning the message the wait

01:55:00--> 01:55:43

The beauty of this Quran This is why it is important for us to try to learn the meaning of the Quran in Arabic. Now this doesn't mean that we go and study Arabic for like 10 years and only then we're able to understand the Quran. No, you can understand the meaning of the Quran by studying the Arabic text of the Quran. Right now we're just reading the translation, and that is good Alhamdulillah but there is a better way a deeper way. So each person should strive to understand the text of the Quran. In Arabic. We relate to you the best of stories in what we have revealed to you have this Quran, although you were before it among the unaware, meaning you did not know the story of use of

01:55:43--> 01:56:29

artemisinin before you will only come to know about it over here. And really this is a miracle of the Quran because the story of you of use of artemisinin was a story that was completely unknown to the Arabs and the Arabs were an unlettered nation, they did not have access to Scripture. So they did not know the stories of the past. So, the story of use of odious Anam it is described as a central costless, the best of stories, because its contents are the best. Any, it is not just a story that is nice. But it is a story that teaches so many lessons, we see how loved ones are separated from one another, we see how there is decline in life. And then there is also gain, you

01:56:29--> 01:57:13

lose some you win some, we see that there is pain and there is joy, we see that a times there is a lot of times there is very little, we see that at times there's rejection, and then there are other times when there is acceptance. So this is the reality of this life. of the stories mentioned when you subset to his father, oh my father, indeed I have seen in a dream 11 stars and the sun and the moon. I saw them prostrating to me. Now, of course, this was a very strange dream, but obviously very nice because so many things were prostrating to use of the sun. So his father said, Oh, my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers, or they will contrive against you a plan. Indeed, che

01:57:13--> 01:57:59

plan to man is a manifest enemy, meaning hide your blessing, keep it private, until it becomes evident, until the need is fulfilled, until the goal is achieved. And after the blessing is complete, the goal is achieved. Then what can you do for what I'm doing here, Matthew, Rob Baker for heard this, then you can talk about the blessing that Allah has given you. But still, when you talk about the blessing that Allah has given you do not flaunt why, because then others will feel jealous, do not mention a lot of detail. And especially when you know that you have competitors, or people who are very envious of you, even though they may be very close to you, then be careful and

01:57:59--> 01:58:46

conceal your blessings. Now, at the same time, we have to be careful that we should not be suspicious of people all the time. Yes, jealousy is real. But we should not be suspicious of people all the time. That you know what everyone is jealous of me, I trust nobody and their evil eye is going to affect me. No, you should be careful. But you shouldn't be always suspicious. You should preserve your blessings, with privacy, and also with sugar. Also with gratitude, and when Allah has given you a blessing, then we eager to benefit others with it. And even if someone is jealous of you, and they harm you, like it happened with use of his setup, then bear that test with patients.

01:58:47--> 01:59:28

You don't know what Allah subhanaw taala has planned for you. So don't develop hatred for people. Our problem is that we develop a resentment towards people that you know what it's their evil eye that has affected me and it is their jealousy because of which I have not been able to to thrive in my career in my life, etc. Okay, people jealousy is they're fine. Yes, they may try to harm you. And yes, they're evil, I may affect you. You take the necessary precaution to preserve your blessings, not flaunt them, but at the same time, don't be resentful of people. Because we see that what happened with us of Ernie celeb. Yes, he did not share his dream with his brothers, but still there

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

came a point when his brothers harmed him. But what happened even though his brothers tried to harm him, was use of earnest and I'm still a victim. No, he was not. Even though his life was hard and he suffered, did Allah subhanaw taala waste his reward? He did not. And through difficulty, Allah subhanaw taala gave him so much. So don't resent people and thus will your Lord choose you and teach you the interpretation of narratives.

02:00:00--> 02:00:42

to complete his favor upon you, and upon the family of your home, as he completed it upon your father's before Ibrahim and his how indeed your Lord is knowing and wise. So we see that the story of use of our lesson begins with a dream. And it's important that we understand what dreams are, and what they mean. So remember that there's three types of dreams. One dream is that which is from Allah, it is a good dream. One dream is Hadith and knifes is just your own, you know, mind that is basically, you know, repeating different experiences that you have had through the day, or it's bringing to you the fears that you have. So this is how these are knifes. Alright, and these are

02:00:42--> 02:01:31

meaningless, random, random things that you see in your dream. And thirdly, there's a dream from shaitan, which is a frightening dream, a scary dream, a nightmare, or off, you know, dirty nature. So this is from shaitan. When it comes to a good dream, remember, do not brag about it, do not brag about it, do not tell people about it in a Hadees we learn one who sees a person who sees a good dream, should feel pleased, but he should not disclose it to anyone except the one whom he loves, meaning the person whom you trust. And when you see a good dream, thank Allah for it in our Hadees, we learn folia remodelaholic, he should thank Allah for that blessing. And when you see a bad dream,

02:01:32--> 02:01:45

then don't mention it to people to anybody at all. Rather seek Allah's refuge against the shaitan. This is what we have been taught, and there are different laws that we can make in order to be safe from the attack of shaitan.

02:01:46--> 02:02:30

Certainly there, certainly we're there in use of and his brother's Signs for those who ask, when they said use of at his brother are more beloved to our father than we, while we are a clan, we are more worthy of that love. Indeed, our Father is in clear error. So we see that their problems started with jealousy, and Iblees. Also, his problem began with jealousy. Look at how dangerous jealousy is this kill use of or throw him out to another land, the countenance of your face will then be only for you when use of is gone, then our life will be good. And you will be after that a righteous people you're gonna repent and you know, things will be good, you'll be good people after.

02:02:30--> 02:03:10

And sometimes we justify our sins like this, that you know what commit the sin right now. And later on, we'll do tobei still said a speaker among them. The eldest of them do not kill use of both throw him into the bottom of the well. Some travelers will became up if you if you would do something they were children of Prophet of Allah. So at least they had some good sense. They said, Oh, our Father, but now the question was, how do you throw him into the well? They said, Oh, our Father, why do not entrust us with use of while indeed we are to him sincere counselors. Look at them. They're blackmailing their father, this at send him with us tomorrow, that he may eat well and play. And

02:03:10--> 02:03:53

indeed, we will be his guardians. You're depriving him jacoba salaam said indeed it saddens me that you should take him and I fear that a wolf would eat him while you are off him unaware. So you're a cobra, Listen, I've expressed his fear before them. And it is necessary for us to understand that just as we don't share every blessing with everybody. We should not share our fears with everybody also. Why? Because some people might use your fears against you exactly what the what the brothers of us have already said I'm did. They said if a wolf should eat him while we are a strong clan, indeed, We will then be losers. They're lying. So when they took him out and agreed to put him in

02:03:53--> 02:04:33

the bottom of the well, but we inspire to him that threw him in the well. But Allah subhanaw taala inspired to you so that you will surely inform them someday about this affair of theirs. While they do not perceive your identity meeting just wait out the storm. Just be patient. A time will come when you will see your brothers face to face. And they will not even be able to recognize you. And they came to their father at night weeping fake tears. They said oh our father, indeed we went racing each other and left us with our possessions and a wolf a tomb. But you would not believe us even if we were truthful. And they brought upon his shirt false blood. jacobina said I'm said rather

02:04:33--> 02:04:59

your souls have enticed you to something. So patience is most fitting and Allah is the one sought for help against that which you described. It's upon Allah. He knew there were not being honest. So he did not accept their word, yet he did not humiliate them by punishing them. This is an example of err Rob of turning away exactly what the prophet sallallahu already said it was told to do with the hypocrites who came and lie to his face. You don't accept

02:05:00--> 02:05:42

There lies, but then you also don't argue with them. You just turn away from them. So we see that your courtesan was not deceived by the fake tears. Yeah, Bakun and we can see there to face sadness that how when they spoke to the Father that were so nice and behind him they were completely different. Sometimes the stab comes from the back, someone who is closest to you. It's easy to avoid real enemies, the backstabbers they're worse, the limb of the will corba the oppression the injustice of someone who is close to you, related to you, that's very difficult to navigate very difficult to put up with. But here are Kubernetes and on what was his response for sablon Jamil

02:05:42--> 02:06:29

patients is beautiful, meaning my patient is going to be a beautiful patients. And what is that? It is a patient's of rebar versus a patient's of jezza patients of rebar. Meaning a person is pleased with Allah's decree. So they're not upset with Allah. And because they're not upset with Allah. They don't go on complaining to people all the time. And they don't complain in the sense that why me and why did this happen to me? And sovereign Jamil also means that you don't claim purity, that What crime did I ever commit that I should have to suffer this way? I don't deserve this. This is not somebody Jimmy. Sub Ron Jamil is a patient's in which a person does not complain is not upset with

02:06:29--> 02:07:14

Allah. This is a patient's with dignity and composure. And this is a patient's of fortitude, and choice, meaning a person chooses to be patient, would you say your tone and there came a company of travelers, then they sent their water drawer, and he let down his buckets into the well we're use of our lesson on was, he said good news here is a boy. And they concealed him taking him as merchandise and Allah was knowing of what they did. And they sold him as a slave for a reduced price a few their homes. And they were concerning him of those content with little because they had no idea who use of early Salaam was. And yes, this happens that there are people who are truly very worthy in the sight

02:07:14--> 02:08:02

of Allah, but people don't respect them at all. Sometimes it happens, that people don't treat you with any dignity, they undervalue you. So at this also be patient and the one from Egypt, who bought him set to his wife, make his residents comfortable, perhaps he will benefit us or we will adopt him as a son. And thus we established use of in the land, all the way from the village. Now he was in the city, be in the house of a very noble man, in a life that was comfortable. Allah says we established the use of in the land, why that we might teach him the interpretation of events. And Allah is predominant over his affair, but most of the people do not know. So stop resisting and

02:08:02--> 02:08:49

start submitting to Allah decree. And when you submit, when you accept it, then you'll be able to figure out what you should do. Because remember, difficulties teach you what ease cannot teach you. So instead of wasting our time complaining, we should focus on what we can do at the moment. And when use have reached maturity, we gave him judgment and knowledge and thus we reward the doers of good more sinning, and she in whose house he was sought to seduce him, Subhan Allah another test, things had barely settled that another trial began. And this is the life of the believer that one test after the other. This is not because Allah dislikes you. This is not because Allah is punishing

02:08:49--> 02:09:32

you. No, this is because there is something good that Allah is giving you through these trials because no pain, no gain. She closed the doors and said calm you. He said I seek the refuge of Allah. Indeed, he is my master who has made good my residents. Indeed the wrongdoers will not succeed, meaning I cannot commit this crime, I cannot commit the sin. Allah has given me so much, and my my human Master, and he has been so good to me. It doesn't befit me to commit this action. And she's certainly determined to seduce him, and he would have inclined to her had he not seen the proof of his Lord, and thus it was that we should avert from him evil and in morality, indeed, he

02:09:32--> 02:09:59

was of our chosen servants. So we see will have seen a Mullah servant, a person who is sincere than he is protected because of his sincerity. Allah subhanaw taala gives them the fortitude to reject what is wrong, that even when it is not a level playing field, when the power dynamics are very different use of artisan was a slave. He was a man all odds were against him here. But still he said no. And remember

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

You always have the power to say, No, you don't have to submit to what people demand from you, you have the power to say no. So use that power, what happened, and they both raised to the door, use awareness and ran from the place of sin. And this is what we need to do. Run away and avoid, get away from places where there is potential of sin. And your heart will tell you, your own inner voice will tell you when things are not going right. So leave that place. Don't be complacent over there. And she tore his shirt from the back. And they found her husband at the door. She said, What is the recompense of one who intended evil for your wife, but that he should be imprisoned or given a

02:10:49--> 02:11:29

painful punishment. He This was her love. This was her infatuation. In fact, her selfish love, where the goal was to simply satisfy her own desire, she didn't care about use of art his center. And this is how a lot of people are, they trap individuals with their so called love. But that is not love. And we should not be so desperate for the love and attention of others, that we forget about what is right and what is wrong. A lot of times young women get trapped into things like this. So block out such individuals who invite you to sit no matter what they offer, no matter how they tempt you and try to lower you and try to show you that you know what they love you the most. They're sending you

02:11:29--> 02:12:11

flowers, and they're sending you cute emojis, and they're sending you sweet words, know what is wrong is wrong, block it out. Use it as Sam said, It was she who sought to seduce me and a witness from her family testify that if his shirt is torn from the front, then she has told the truth and he is up the liars. But if his shirt has torn from the back, then she has lied and he is up the truthful. So when her husband saw his shirt torn from the back, he said indeed it is of the women's plan. Indeed your plan is great meaning very difficult to avoid use of ignore this. And my wife, you asked forgiveness for your sin. Indeed you were of the sinful. And women in the city said the wife

02:12:11--> 02:12:57

of Aziz is seeking to steal. And the women in the city said the wife of the Aziz is seeking to seduce her slave boy, meaning if she was gonna, you know, have an affair with someone. Why are slave boy, he hasn't passionate or would love Indeed, we see her to be in clear error. We see that she locked the doors and yet the news spread. They told us the very center, be quiet. Don't talk about it, ignore this move ahead. But still, the sin did not remain hidden, it became exposed and this is the reality of such affairs. People think you know what, nobody's gonna find out. But Allah knows. And eventually people also find out. So when she heard of their scheming, she sent for them and

02:12:57--> 02:13:43

prepared for them a banquet and gave each one of them a knife and set to use have come out before them. And when they saw him, they greatly admired him and cut their hands because he was so handsome. And said perfect is Allah. This is not a man. This is none but a noble Angel. She said that is the one about whom you blame to me, meaning you think you said I am crazy. I am wrong to you know, like him. But look at you, you guys. You ladies cut your own hands when you saw him. So what do you think is gonna happen to me? So panela she's justifying her herself. And this is a huge mistake. Any okay? There is a temptation for sin. Okay, understandable. There is desire inside

02:13:43--> 02:14:23

there's, you know, temptation, there's shaitan. But then don't go prove it to people and don't insist on it. And I certainly sought to seduce him, but he firmly refused. And if he will not do what I ordered him, he will surely be imprisoned and will be of those debased. He said, My Lord, prison is more to my liking than that to which they invite me. And if you do not avert for me their plan, I might inclined toward them, and thus be of the ignorant sopran Allah, he was so eager to protect himself from sin, regardless of what he has to give up for it. So his Lord responded to him and averted from him their plan. Indeed, he is the hearing the knowing, you see now It wasn't just

02:14:23--> 02:15:00

one woman after him, it was all of these women. So what should he do? Imagine if a person is getting so much attention of the opposite gender? What would they do? They would literally be out of control, but use of our his center. He is so fearful of a license, I would rather go to prison than it appeared to them after they had seen the signs. his innocence was known, yet, they decided that Allah Aziz should surely imprison him for a time. So use of Rene Senna was now in prison. Things are getting more and more difficult, and they're entered the prison with him two young men.

02:15:00--> 02:15:38

And one of them said, and this was not coincidental. One of them said, Indeed, I have seen myself in a dream pressing wine. The other said, Indeed, I've seen myself carrying upon my head some bread, from which the birds were eating, inform us of its interpretation, indeed, we see you to be of those who do good. Now, use of earnest I was able to benefit from the knowledge of the interpretation of the interpretation of dreams that Allah subhanaw taala gave him. Remember, you can learn all you want, but that knowledge is useless until unless you actually implement it, you are able to use it. And in order to use it, to apply it. Allah will put you through tests, for example, you learned

02:15:38--> 02:16:19

about the virtues of patience, how rewardable is what Slobodan Jamil is, and then what happens, you get up and then your own children start misbehaving. That is your test. That is the time when you actually apply the knowledge that you just learnt Phyllis puntata give us autofeed. And they said to him, we see you as a Morrison, we see that you are a doer of good sopran Allah, he was a Morrison, as a slave, he's a morson as an inmate, he said, You will not receive food that is provided to you except that I will inform you of his interpretation before it comes to you. That is from what my lord has taught me. Indeed, I have left the religion of people who do not believe in Allah and they

02:16:19--> 02:16:55

in the hereafter are disbelievers. So use of ARIA celeb first tells them that I won't be long. But there is something important that I want to tell you. So he uses this opportunity to call them to Allah subhanaw taala. But he is not long in his address in his message in his speech. And this is something very important when we're having a conversation. Don't be the only person who is talking. If you have a lot to say, then you know what, go right about it, or go give a lecture about it. But in a conversation, don't dominate the conversation that nobody else gets a chance to say anything and people's ears are hurting from just listening to you. And I have followed the religion of my

02:16:55--> 02:17:37

father is Ibrahim is help and your code. And it was not for us to associate anything with Allah, that is from the favor of Allah upon us and upon the people. But most of the people are not grateful, oh my two companions of prison are separate Lords better or Allah, the One the prevailing you worship not besides him except mere names, you have named them you and your father's for which Allah has sent down no authority, legislation is not but for Allah He is the Creator and he decides he has commanded that you worship not accept him. That is the correct religion. But most of the people do not know, or two companions of prison. As for one of you know, he tells him the

02:17:37--> 02:18:21

interpretation, he will give drink to his master of wine, but as for the other, he will be crucified and the birds will eat from his head, the matter has been decreed about what you both enquire and he said to the one whom he knew would go free, mentioned me before your master, but shaitan made him forget the mention to his master and use of it Asana remained in prison several years. And subsequently, the king said, Indeed, I have seen in a dream seven fat cows being eaten by seven that were lien and seven green spikes of grain and others that were dry, all eminent once explained to me my vision, if you should interpret visions, use of artists that are thought in order to get out of

02:18:21--> 02:19:02

prison, he should have to advocate for himself and that is necessary, but Allah subhanaw taala had a better plan. And what was that, that the king should come in need of use of early Salah. Not that use of realism should go to the king in his need. They said it is but a mixture of false dreams and we are not learned in the in the interpretation of dreams. But the one who was freed and remembered after a time said I will inform you of its interpretation so send me forth he said use of all manner of truth Subhanallah any now that he needs he is already set up he comes to him and now he's praising him. But before that he had completely forgotten him. explained to us about seven fat cows

02:19:02--> 02:19:43

eaten by seven that were lien and seven green spikes of grain and others that were dry that I may return to the people perhaps they will no use of it Salaam said you will plant for seven years consecutively. And what you harvest leave in it spikes except a little from which you fall will eat. Then will come after that seven difficult years which will consume what you saved for them except a little from which you will store you see how the same theme is being repeated use of our his salon First of all, he doesn't just give the interpretation he also gives a solution and then we see how there is difficulty and then there is ease and then there is difficulty and then there is ease. This

02:19:43--> 02:19:59

is how life is nothing at all is permanent. Then it will come after that a year in which the people will be given rain and in which they will press olives and grapes. And the king said he was fascinated Mind blown. He said Bring him to me. But when the message

02:20:00--> 02:20:47

came to use of our his salon to call him that Come let's go out of prison The king is calling you use a brace and I'm looking at his patients, he said return to your master and ask him, what is the case of the women who cut their hands? Indeed, my lord is knowing of their plan, use of our histogram establishes his innocence first and this is important, because he is a prophet of Allah. And he was he wanted to be trusted with you know, and later on, he was going to be trusted with a huge responsibility. So before that, any his record had to be clear Otherwise, how would people trust him? said the King to the women. Now there was an official investigation into the case. What

02:20:47--> 02:21:39

was your condition when you sought to seduce use of they said, perfect is Allah we know about him no evil, meaning use of earlier Salaam committed no sin. And such a profits. They're innocent before they're credible. Sorry, there are innocent and this is why they are credible. The wife of Allah Aziz said, Now the truth has become evident It was I who sought to seduce him, and indeed he is of the truthful. So she publicly confessed now and this is a fact the truth will become evident sooner or later if not in this life than on the Day of Judgment. That is so Allah Aziz will know that I did not betray him in his absence, and that Allah does not guide the plan of betrayers will anila laya

02:21:39--> 02:22:27

DK the heart in in. This is why we should stay away from piano to the best of our ability. In fact, this is something that we cannot allow ourselves to do, no matter how intense the pressure is. And no matter how strong the temptation is, you see use of earliest setup, he was in a situation where he had a choice to either betray his trust or any fear or loss upon him. And he chose the fear of Allah above piano. And this is why this is how you serve artists that have succeeded. We allow ourselves to cheat. We say it's okay because it's going to help me become successful. we justify it because we say it's only a means to a better goal. But even if it's a means to a good goal, it's not

02:22:27--> 02:22:46

worth it. So stay away from it. Because Allah is not on the side of those who betray, he does not guide them.

Okay, so um, you have till July 15 to finish all the quizzes, okay.

02:25:49--> 02:26:05

Yes, emails posted right there by SR Nisa, on their left. Okay, so let's look in shall now be liking the shape on origin for smilla rahmanir rahim is number eight in certain use of when they said meaning the brothers, Yusuf and his brother

02:26:07--> 02:26:14

are more beloved to our father than we while we are a clan, indeed, our Father is in clear error.

02:26:16--> 02:26:17

So then,

02:26:18--> 02:26:23

what is this feeling that this brothers have? What would it be called?

02:26:25--> 02:26:26

Yes.

02:26:28--> 02:26:48

jealousy. Jealousy. Envy, right? Yes. So the brothers were jealous. Right? Why were they're jealous. They were jealous that Yusuf Ali Salaam and Binyamin were more beloved to their father than they were. Yes, severely jealous.

02:26:50--> 02:27:01

Okay, so they had a lot of envy towards them. But what was the reason what made the jacobellis alum their father, love,

02:27:02--> 02:27:04

usefully, some in Binyamin more?

02:27:07--> 02:27:12

Yes, it totally landed on some Hola. Because Subhanallah they were better children.

02:27:13--> 02:27:17

Right? They were obedient. And Subhanallah they kept themselves neat.

02:27:19--> 02:27:29

Okay. Yeah, it wasn't because they were the youngest Subhanallah it was because they had better manners. When we see how Yusuf Alayhi Salaam addresses his father.

02:27:31--> 02:27:32

How does he address his father?

02:27:34--> 02:27:45

Yes, lovingly. Right? very respectfully. And then how do the brothers respect How do they brothers SubhanAllah. How do they treat him?

02:27:46--> 02:27:53

How do they address him? Yes, he did. Yes, very rudely. Right. They just say father.

02:27:55--> 02:28:06

Yeah. So then who is the father going to have more inclination towards the one that says yeah, but the my father, or the one that just screams? That them? Subhan? Allah?

02:28:09--> 02:28:27

Yes, exactly. Dad. Yeah. Yeah, those are show respect, right. So it wasn't, the love wasn't there because of their age, or who their mother was, it was because of the fact that they were more obedient children.

02:28:28--> 02:28:30

They were Kinder.

02:28:31--> 02:29:06

Right. And they took care of themselves and how they dressed how they looked. And when we see a small child, if we see a small child who's just taking a shower, and they have clean clothes on in there, they don't have any stains from food or their noses and running, then don't we just automatically just want to go and give that child a hug and a kiss, right? versus a kid who may be extremely cute, but who has food all over their clothes? Who smells who hasn't been given a shower, and sometimes whose hair is a mess?

02:29:07--> 02:29:10

We don't we're not inclined towards that kid as much.

02:29:12--> 02:29:26

Right? So appearance matters as well. Yes, the natural inclination, it has nothing to do with the shape of their nose or their skin color or their eyes. It has everything to do with what they're doing to keep themselves neat.

02:29:28--> 02:29:31

Yes, very true. These weren't even small, cute kids wanna?

02:29:33--> 02:29:54

Right? So the more obedient we are to our parents, the more respect we'll get from them. Right? So if we're not getting along with our parents, then check, right what is my attitude towards my parents? What am I doing wrong? Maybe my other sibling is more loved by my parents. What's what is it that they're doing? right but parents remember

02:29:56--> 02:29:57

we're not allowed to

02:29:58--> 02:29:59

make open

02:30:01--> 02:30:09

differentiation between our children, right? That's not in our Deen, right? What's in the heart is in the heart, but openly we're not allowed to

02:30:11--> 02:30:16

favor one child over the other. Okay? So make sure that we don't take this the wrong way.

02:30:19--> 02:30:20

Okay. So, what is jealousy?

02:30:22--> 02:30:53

has said in Arabic is destructive jealousy is among the most destructive emotions or feeling when a man may have which a man may have towards his fellow human being. It causes him to wish evil for others and to be happy when misfortune befalls them. Okay, so what is jealousy? Number one is one of the most destructive emotions, right? And is towards another human being. And what is this feeling? You want evil for someone?

02:30:54--> 02:31:01

And when something terrible happens to them, you're happy. Right? So time to self check.

02:31:03--> 02:31:10

Right? Am I happy when I hear something didn't work out for someone? Am I happy when I find out that someone is in some kind of difficulty?

02:31:13--> 02:31:18

Yes, results are never good. Very true. Okay, so what are some

02:31:20--> 02:31:30

points that we can ensure load? Check on to see, am I jealous? Do we have these state type of statements? Are we always saying it's not fair?

02:31:32--> 02:31:42

Are we looking at others and saying it's not fair that I have to go through this and this person doesn't have to go through this? Or I want this? Why didn't I get it?

02:31:44--> 02:31:46

Right? Why did so and so get it?

02:31:48--> 02:31:50

Or I should have gotten this?

02:31:52--> 02:32:01

that other person Subhanallah wasn't entitled to this? Or do we feel like I deserve this? Why did they get it?

02:32:02--> 02:32:13

Yes, it's in your heart. Exactly. So what kind of statements Am I making about other people? And number one, why am I even looking towards what they've been given?

02:32:16--> 02:32:19

The problem is that we don't see what we have.

02:32:20--> 02:32:29

Our focus is on what are other people getting? If we honestly were to reflect on what we have, so when Allah we will be very content.

02:32:33--> 02:32:37

Right, but shaytaan What does he want us to do? Yes, Joker is the key.

02:32:40--> 02:33:03

He wants to keep us busy with these things. When we're busy with these things. Do we have time to pray to Allah subhanaw taala with her shoe? Do we have time to Subhanallah sit down and recite some Quran? Do we have time to join up or on class and get a deeper meaning of the Quran? We just learned today that we should be understanding the Quran in Arabic Alhamdulillah we have a course for that.

02:33:04--> 02:33:15

Do we have time to do that? And then those of us without hamdulillah last month Allah has blessed us with the ability to understand the Quran in Arabic. How much are we pondering on it?

02:33:16--> 02:33:33

So when we are jealous of people that are focuses on people, and Subhanallah we lose sight of everything. Yeah, too busy conspiring negative thoughts. Exactly. preoccupied. spatola. So what is the cycle of jealousy? Number one, you feel hatred,

02:33:34--> 02:34:04

right? And then secondly, it turns into backbiting. Because when we are our heart is full of all of this venom upon a light it's going to come out on our tongue, right? What's in the heart is on the tongue. Right? So then what are we doing? We're jealous of this person, we want to make sure no one else sees any good in them. So, all we do then is just backbite about them constantly see, what is what we feel is the right thing

02:34:05--> 02:34:06

to point out their

02:34:07--> 02:34:09

their shortcomings.

02:34:10--> 02:34:26

Right and then so patola then people turn to other ways of physically harming some people turn to magic, some people some kind of lead turn to other ways of plotting and planning. And may Allah Allah save us from all of this. So the first step we see is hatred.

02:34:27--> 02:34:36

Right? So we have to remove this from our heart. Because if we don't remove this from our heart, then Subhanallah it turns into backbiting and then it can turn into something even greater.

02:34:37--> 02:34:59

Right and we can see in the news all the time people are Subhanallah hurting each other in different ways. out of jealousy, nothing else. Yes, trying to justify our Subhan Allah thoughts and feelings. So what is jealousy? The hoodies tells us and even magic the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said jealousy devours good deeds.

02:35:00--> 02:35:02

like fire devours, would

02:35:04--> 02:35:16

ever see a wood burn a piece of wood you like fire to it and how quickly so hon Allah, it starts to eat it up and it turns black paving eventually it turns into just ash.

02:35:17--> 02:35:40

So this is what happens to our good deeds. So perhaps we're praying on one end. And then on the other side, as soon as we're done praying because she's done, you know, he's very smart. Well, we're praying, you'll put a thought in our head. And then as soon as we're done praying, we won't even do our scar. Forget the so now get on the phone, or text somebody and tell them about someone else.

02:35:41--> 02:36:31

Right, so what happened then even though we prayed Subhan Allah, we've lost all that. adjure. Yes. I mean, the end result is zero. So this is what jealousy does to our good deeds. It completely burns them up. Yes, waist. So jealousy is a disease. So we have to treat it as a disease. If we find out we have a heart problem. Do we just sit back and say, it's okay? Yeah, my heartbeats irregular? I feel chest pain all the time? Are we just going to sit home and just ignore it? And just be like, don't it's not something I need to worry about? Of course not. Right, we're going to run to the doctor, we're gonna go to the emergency room. Alright. So the same way we have to get this disease

02:36:31--> 02:37:14

out of our hearts, we have to clean it out. And Alhamdulillah that it's possible that we can do it at home, right? We don't have to go to a doctor for this disease. And we just First of all, we have to recognize it so that inshallah we can clean it. Alright, so what is this? Number one? The name is jealousy? And what is it? It's a type of chronic heart disease, right? There are diseases, the heart in jealousy is one of them. And what is the cause? Love of this world? Right, so different things that people want to achieve in this dunya? Only? They're not thinking about the athlete? And what is the analysis? What is the result of this lower respect to swannanoa? So what is the symptoms to be

02:37:14--> 02:37:42

displeased with another's blessings, right? We see someone has something, someone got a house, somebody got a car, somebody had a baby, somebody got married, somebody got a promotion, right? Somebody got a new outfit, somebody's got that purse, you wanted somebody bought some shoes, it doesn't matter what it is, hey, maybe somebody learned how to cook a dish. It's to be displeased with whatever somebody else has. And you don't want them to have it anymore.

02:37:43--> 02:37:46

And so you feel discontent in your heart.

02:37:49--> 02:38:00

And so what is the cure, there is a cure number one, except that we are jealous. Because if we don't recognize this trait, then we can't fix it. Right? So number one, accept that we are jealous.

02:38:01--> 02:38:30

And then number two, turn to a light asked him to lift the jealousy from our heart. Hey, this is something we can make dua for and it works. Less panda will take those feelings away if we truly desire them to be taken away. Right? But then we have to make sure shaitan doesn't come back. Okay, so no more backbiting. If we absolutely have to talk about somebody, then three and four, praise the one you're jealous of.

02:38:31--> 02:38:39

Hey, don't say bad things about them. undo what you've done. How can we undo what we've done? If we've said something bad about someone, now praise them?

02:38:41--> 02:38:45

Right, we've discussed their bad qualities. Now number four, discuss their good qualities.

02:38:47--> 02:39:04

Okay, so train our enough's train ourselves to take this jealousy away from us. Yes, continue doing the good Yes. What if I strive to get the same? Is that also jealousy? No. If you see somebody has something and you want it,

02:39:05--> 02:39:22

be happy for them and make do offer the same thing? Or even better? Right? Why not? Since we're making girl make for some may go off for something even better than that. And there's nothing wrong with that. Right? Because how will we know what we want unless we see it? So if I see something

02:39:23--> 02:39:34

may Allah Subhana Allah bless them, right? Give them duar Baraka Allah, May Allah give you Baraka in what he's giving you, and then turn around and make go to a loss panda asked for that and better.

02:39:35--> 02:39:39

Yes, and then know that you've asked the one who can give

02:39:42--> 02:39:46

Yes, so no problem you like something may go off for it.

02:39:47--> 02:39:50

And you will see a loss panda will give it in some way or another.

02:39:51--> 02:39:56

Right and if nothing else, at least Allah Subhana Allah will put contentment in your heart.

02:39:58--> 02:39:59

Thanks, so let's strive to

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

To be the best.

02:40:01--> 02:40:25

Allah's messengers, Elias alum was asked who are the best of people? He replied, the one with a clean heart and truthful tongue. Remember a lot yesterday we talked about lying. They asked, we understand a truthful tongue. But what does a clean heart mean? He answered, It is a heart of one that is pious, pure and free of sin, transgressions, hatred and has said

02:40:27--> 02:40:31

right, so inshallah, we practice upon our truthful tongue, and

02:40:33--> 02:41:15

also to get rid of this hazard. And when is envy allowed in two cases, the Hadees also tells us and we look is allowed in two cases, in the case of a man whom Allah has given the Quran and who recites it throughout the night and day, and the man on whom Allah has bestowed wealth, who gives it away throughout the night and day. So if we see a loss founder is blessed someone with any of these qualities, then we can ask Allah subhanaw taala for these qualities as well, so that we can inshallah incorporate these traits as well. Yes, when Islam and wealth we see both things are for the sake of Allah. Right. So our focus is the author,

02:41:16--> 02:41:17

not the dunya.

02:41:19--> 02:41:26

Right. So self analysis do be degrade or harm others to get some attention. Right. So let's say someone made a dessert,

02:41:27--> 02:41:47

right? Someone made a dessert, and it's really good. And all our friends are just raving about how amazing it is. Right? So then you get jealous. So what do you say, you know, this dessert has a lot of fat, it has a lot of it has a lot of cream in it. It's actually not good for us. So now what happens?

02:41:48--> 02:42:33
