00:01:19--> 00:02:06

Beautiful handle Langella Today we are going to learn about if there are part so inshallah without if there of course there is no fasting. So whenever we think of Ramadan we think of if they're first I think before so good to panel. So let's just talk about that and shall we going to begin the way we usually begin. So inshallah we're going to begin by praising Allah subhanaw taala first, and then we're going to learn about if that really in the hamdulillah and Amadou Anna Steiner, who was the Pharaoh, when I will do Billahi min, sureiy and fusina Lamine say Dr. Molina, Maria de la Vela mobila woman you will for her Deanna eyeshadow Allah either in the LA Watteau Lucha de Cana.

Nadine, May Allah give us the correct understanding of the deen? May Allah enable us to do all the deeds he loves, and merely enable us to stay away from everything, which he just likes and hates.

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

So with that, let's begin.

00:02:35--> 00:03:15

Today we're going to talk about if that if that is something which we enjoy, and that there is nothing wrong with that, because you know, sometimes people make you feel bad about it, that you know, you've even though it's the month of Ramadan, and you're supposed to think about fasting, and you guys are thinking about food, it's no good, but you know, we have a proof, you have a proof to be happy, and that proof is wrong. So he had these from an authentic narration. So let's just look at that. There are two joys for the fasting person as sort of La sallallahu wasallam said, in this beautiful Hades, the assignee for Haida and for the one who is fasting, there are two joys, to

00:03:15--> 00:03:56

pleasures. So there are two pleasures for the fasting person, one at the time of breaking his fast, and when and the other is, at the time, when he will meet his Lord, then you please because of his fasting, you will be pleased because of his fasting. What does that mean? He be pleased that He fasted because of the surprise reward we talked about earlier. Because Allah subhanaw taala he hasn't told us about the reward right? So there will be something which will make him happy. Also, if we have been fasting, and if he had, if he had been obeying Allah subhanaw taala inshallah, this meeting is going to be beautiful. And remember that the RVM memorized yesterday. So you're asking

00:03:56--> 00:04:12

Allah to meet him, and we asking Allah to put this longing of meeting with him so inshallah that will be a beautiful meeting inshallah. And I hope you guys have memorized this Torah. And you know, there is another habit as well about

00:04:13--> 00:04:52

it was narrated by Irish are on the line and she was, she asked us a little loss that I was going on once about meeting ally, there was a conversation and Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam said, Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet him as well and whoever dislikes to meet Allah, Allah dislikes to meet that person as well. So inshallah this like this liking for meeting or this looking forward to meet Allah is something which is beautiful, we should have it because then inshallah we are hoping that Allah will would love to meet us as well. And that will be the best thing ever right? meeting your Creator would be the best feeling you can ever ever have. Because we can never

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

meet anyone like that,

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

you know, in this world, right panela

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Malay enable us to meet him happily. And may Allah enable it enable us to do something where we can meet him happy. I mean, there's another beautiful narration, and it tells us what to do when it comes to fasting. So it is most known, it is a Sunnah to break the fast early. So we should have the fast breaking meal prepared, and we should have it ready, and we should have at least if nothing is very, then we should at least have our date ready and water ready. And then we should not delay it. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Now yes, Agnus the people will continue to do

00:05:42--> 00:06:23

is I will now also be hired, the people will continue to do well. Now I my genuine faith, as long as they hasten to break the fast. So he'll be hiring her this number 1957. And somehow this is something very important because many of us are forgetting this. And many of us delay opening our fast thinking that we're doing something righteous. And it has been noticed that people will keep searching and making the eyes. And they don't even talk at that time. And they don't even want to eat anything and they delayed for good three, four or five minutes. Sometimes it's not right. Because what does it say? We are going to stay on higher as long as we're going to break it

00:06:24--> 00:06:59

early. Early doesn't mean before time early doesn't mean even few seconds before it has to be right on time inshallah. So London love with the help of technology with the help of the time apps with the help of the apps to do with when to open the fast when to break the fast it's very easy now Alhamdulillah. So the moment it is time in your area in your locality for if our then just break with us. And that is a swindler. Don't feel bad about it don't feel that I'm less righteous than the others who are delaying it actually is better, right and hamdulillah.

00:07:01--> 00:07:38

So don't feel bad actually also tell other people to want to delay Do not delay because they will be against sooner to delayed. And may Allah enable us to do the right thing. Also what to use in order to break your fast. So very clear instructions from a Hadees. Again, there are two narrations explaining them, which we're going to cover today. In this book, first one is from so he Ajani sorry, it says, If any one of you is fasting, let him break his fast with date. In case he does not have them then with water. Verily water is a purifier

00:07:39--> 00:08:21

for enema, but who barely water is a purifiers is going to purify you is going to make you feel good. And it is going to be enough for you hamdulillah. So what is the first option, the first option is date. And then if you don't have dates to break your password, then it is water. We don't find no narration talking about salt. Some people do and they take salt as soon as well. We don't really find any narration for that. So we should not worry about salt, pepper, and and hamdulillah if you don't have dates, we still have water, right? Everyone can have some water, if not a lot. So inshallah that can be following soon apart. So not only we are breaking the fast, that's rewarding

00:08:21--> 00:08:34

act. On top of that we're following another center. So we can power up our fasting by adding as many centers as possible. It's like adding reward points for your fast handling.

00:08:35--> 00:08:53

And this this is very beautiful. It kind of gives us a schedule for how to go about it when it comes to fasting or sorry, sorry when it comes to iftaar. Like what to do first what to do next. So Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he would raise his fast with fresh dates before praying.

00:08:54--> 00:09:22

What is it? What does it show before praying so he would not have his full meal according to this, so he would have his fresh date, then go Primavera, come back and then eat so you can do the same. And your dates are enough to give you enough energy to pray your mother, isn't it? So Prophet sallallahu Sallam he would break as fast with fresh dates before praying. If there were no fresh dates, he would eat dry dates. What we get is usually dry date isn't it?

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

So we can we are still following the sun.

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

And if there are no fresh dates, then he would eat dry dates. If there were no dry dates, he would drink a few sips of water. Again, focus on few sips of water, some multiple the water, not glasses of water, not a bottle of water, not a big bottle of water. Just few sips because if you don't drink a lot of water, that time, you won't be able to perform well. You won't be able to do your you won't be able to do anything properly after that because you'll be overburdened with that water and it will won't be helpful for you. So enjoy

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

Allah be smart be wise about your time and it is very rewarding to feed someone else and help someone break their fast was with Ullah sallallahu wasallam said he who gives food to a fasting person to break his fast will receive the same reward as in Panama same as that person except that nothing will be reduced for the fasting person's reward. So it's like double for you and the fasting person is not losing any rewards anyways because you're getting anything because Allah subhanaw taala he is generous he can give as much as you want there is you know for him it's not hard to give anyone any reward. So this is a very you can say a beautiful opportunity because of Hanukkah this

00:10:48--> 00:11:35

year we are not able to invite people to feed them maybe this is this is a time when we can feed the ones are actually need the ones who don't even have little bit on there. So inshallah make sure if you're able to if you can afford please you know with every of our viewers there should be at least one other person breaking his or her fast with your you know help with your donations or with your meals the meals provided by you inshallah. So if you can afford please do that it is like you're fasting twice. So in one Ramadan, it's like you fasted to Ramadan, or in one Ramadan if you can afford to then you're fasting through Ramadan, which is beautiful, if you cannot do it for the whole

00:11:35--> 00:11:50

month, how about just once a week, but you know, at least some people should benefit from you inshallah this this way. And now, we will look at the authentic to our of breaking the fast when it comes to the other.

00:11:51--> 00:12:33

You know, there are which is mentioned, even in this book, you will notice there is a fine print or there is right after Mikado mesabi is a had these you know, great mention it says life writers dive. So just ignore that. And don't you don't need to make that drive because the eighth means maybe Rasul Allah never said this, right? So it's better to stick to something which is authentic. And we have a beautiful authentic one. So we're going to stick to that. So let's look at that. The hammers one Oh, thirst has gone? Why would they let it rock and the winds are wet. Whatever further ado, and the reward is your insha Allah, if Allah wills, let's look at the breakdown, they have a one our

00:12:33--> 00:13:21

thirst has gone by batalla Del Oro, our trees are moist, or rains or wet or moist, while sebata azrou and the reward is confirmed. Insha Allah, if Allah wills while we're on insha, Allah just wanted to mention one more thing. I've noticed a lot of people writing in sha Allah insha as one word, that would be a different word altogether. So inshallah Remember, this is a separate word. Sure is a separate word. And of course, we all know, Allah is the name of Allah. Let's move on. And let's see when to say restore, because we're used to saying that famous da, which is not authentic, before wasing, right? Sorry, before breaking the fast, but this is for after. So before you eat or

00:13:21--> 00:14:01

drink, you're gonna say Bismillah then you're going to have your dates and your water. And then you will say this though, right? Because when you look at the meaning, it makes sense. It has to be afterwards not before that, because it will be sort of a false statement that art is a read and everything is weighing read and whatnot, even though like your arteries are no it just isn't gone because we haven't even had anything. So inshallah be wise about your dossier Bismillah before and after you have had something then you can make that door and that will make sense. There's another door we still have two minutes to ensure we can cover that. So there is a there are which you can

00:14:01--> 00:14:10

give or you can which you can make for the one who provides if there for you to someone who sent you some food, right so you can make this

00:14:11--> 00:14:44

not hard to memorize insha Allah so let's try that or if even if it's hard for you to memorize, you know, you can just write it down somewhere. Keep it on your phone, so that you can give this to our to the one who fed you. Alright, so let's look at the day. After I in the Kumasi in May the fasting people break fast with you will Akana Diana, aka the I'm sorry acara Diana Komal abrar and the righteous people take share and your meals they eat from your meals

00:14:46--> 00:15:00

while son that is a common mela eater and the angels pray for blessings for you. Beautiful right three statements. May the fasting people keep breaking fast with you. Like you have good company other Muslims breaking fast with you.

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

And may Allah give you enough risk that you can share with others and second part the righteous people are are they

00:15:09--> 00:15:54

they are with you eating your meal damage from your meals they eat with you. So good company and last part is beautiful was solid on a common manner acre and angels pray for blessings for you to panela so we are like scepters to our for all the people who ever share their food with us. And this is a very beautiful way to thank them inshallah, right so here's the translation where the fasting ones break their fast with you and the pious eat your food and the angels pray for blessings on you. So May Allah enable us to do all of that in sha Allah. And now our checklist make the opposite of third time and don't delay in breaking your fast memorize this authentic there are if you don't know

Samar de como Rahmatullahi wa barakato.

00:17:36--> 00:18:27

When a person recites the Quran, or they study its meanings, they reflect upon it, their ultimate goal should be to please Allah subhanaw taala and it should be to gain the rewards of the hereafter. We learned that Oh sorry, the Hadith he said that I heard Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that after 60 years will come a generation that will neglect the Salah. It will pursue desires and will meet evil, after them will come a generation that will recite the Quran, but it will not go past their throats. And he said there are three kinds of people who recite the Quran, the believer, the hypocrite and the wicked. And then he explained who these people are. So we see

00:18:27--> 00:19:18

that our goal when we are reciting the Quran should not be to earn worldly benefits. Our recitation should not just be in our mouths, our reading our study should not just be intellectual, it should be for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala even but Paul said that this means that the recitation of the wicked and of the hypocrite does not ascend to Allah, why because it is not for him. So when it is not for him, it is not accepted by him. So the recitation the reading it, it ends here in this in this world, it is it does not ascend up to Allah subhanaw taala The only recitation that is worthy of acceptance is the one by which the face of Allah is sought, and the intention is to seek nearness

00:19:18--> 00:19:36

to him. So we should make sure that our recitation is is with sincerity, our study our reflection, our our, you know, learning the Quran is for the sake of Allah so that it ascends to him or zoa Jen, because only then will it be beneficial.

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

Just number 13 Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wama Oba de una FC enough Salah Amala to be su e llama, Rahim Allah be in Nairobi refer Rahim and I do not acquit myself. Indeed, the soul is a persistent

00:20:00--> 00:20:58

In joinder of evil, except those upon which my lord has mercy, indeed, my lord is Forgiving and Merciful. Yusuf Alayhi Salaam says this about himself, that even though my innocence is established, but in spite of that, I do not claim that I am pure, that I am perfect. And in the Quran we are told fella to Zakho and full circle, but do not claim yourselves to be pure and perfect. Do not think about yourself that you are very pious, that you are free of sin, that you have never made any mistake. No, because every human being in one way or another, does make mistakes at some level. And the more taqwa a person has, the closer a person is to Allah subhanaw taala, the more fearful he or

00:20:58--> 00:21:52

she is, then a person is able to see their own shortcomings and because of that, they fear Allah subhanaw taala even more, we see that the prophets of Allah are innocent of sin, yet use of artists Salaam in his humility in his honesty, he makes this statement that the knifes definitely incites to evil. It is a persistent in joiner of evil. And this is a lesson that we need to take for ourselves as well, that we don't go on claiming to be perfect before others. We learned from this idea about the nature of the knifes that it does urge a person to do evil, just like an untamed horse that is very difficult to control. So a person can easily be defeated by their own knifes except for who

00:21:52--> 00:22:18

Elana rahima be except for the person or accept those moments in which Allah's mercy protects a person from his own knifes. This is why we should ask Allah Subhana thada to help us against our own knifes Allahumma Atty. nuptse, taqwa that Oh Allah give my enough's it's the Aqua was that key her purify it.

00:22:19--> 00:23:03

In another dollar we learn are all the becoming surely enough see that Oh Allah, I seek your protection from the evil of my soul. And this is part of a dog which we recite in the morning and in the evening that you're Allah, you protect me from my own evil, because a person can get deceived by their own knifes very easily, a person can fall prey to the tricks of the knifes because the knifes beautifies sin and wrongdoing. So a person thinks that what is wrong is actually beneficial. And so he ends up doing it and then later on, there are only regrets. We see that in the Quran, three characteristics of the knifes are mentioned that first of all, it is a monotone bisou it

00:23:03--> 00:23:56

persistently enjoins of evil meaning it urges a person to commit sin. And when does that happen? When a person is already that when a person knowingly commits a sin, then he becomes weak before his own desire. So the knifes then urges it to follow its desire over and over again. Secondly, the enough's is also described as Neff sulloway, ama, meaning the knifes that reproaches and blames meeting after we do something wrong Alhamdulillah for the ability of the knifes to feel that wrong, and so your own nerves tells you that this was not okay. It reproaches you and we should listen to the voice of of the knifes when it reproaches us when it regrets over the sin that was committed.

00:23:56--> 00:24:23

Why? Because this leads to repentance. But if you silence this voice over and over again, then the knifes of Loma dies, and then there's not some Multimap in the nafs that is satisfied. And that is after Toba after making repentance and after doing good things. This is when a person can really feel contentment, whereas before it it was upset and sad and angry.

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

So we see in this idea that Walmart will bury NFC in enough Salah, a model to be su Illa moto Hammurabi and then look at the names of Allah that are mentioned here in Nabila Fuhrer. Rahim my lord is Forgiving and Merciful. So even if a person has fallen prey to their own knifes, there is hope of recovery. This idea is proof that it is not impossible to leave what is wrong, whether it is an unlawful relationship or it is some bad habit. It is bursts of anger that a person is not able to control initially. violent actions foul line

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

Language whatever it is, you are able to move past it with the help of Allah subhanaw taala. But for that you have to begin with acknowledgement. You have to begin with humility and then you seek the help of Allah subhanaw taala. And then you strive and when you strive, then Allah's help will also be with you. We learned in the Hadees that the best of believers in Islam is the one from whose Tongan hands other Muslims are safe. And the best Jihad the best striving is of the person who strives against his own knifes for the sake of Allah. And the best of the immigrants is the one who strives against his knifes and desire for the sake of Allah soprano Darla. So we should ask Allah

00:25:42--> 00:26:33

subhanaw taala for help against our own knifes Allah hamara hermetica or a Jew or Allah, I seek Your mercy fanatically Ilana super Fatah I'm so do not leave me to my soul, even for the blink of the eye. And the king said, Bring him to me, I will appoint him exclusively for myself. And when he spoke to him, he said, Indeed you are today established in position and trusted. So we see that the king was greatly impressed by use of his setup. And when he met him, he spoke to him, he was even more impressed that he wanted to have use of his salon to be his personal advisor. You Safari, his Salaam said, appoint me over the storehouses of the land. Indeed, I will be annoying Guardian use of

00:26:33--> 00:27:22

ARIA has Salaam, offered to do what he believed he was more capable of doing what he was good at doing. If you think about it, the king offered him to be his personal advisor. And being the Kings confidant would be a great privilege, being the personal advisor to the king, any it would be awesome. But you suffer his Salaam chose to do something else, something better, because he was not seeking privilege in the world. He was not seeking power. He was he was trying to use his abilities and his strengths in the best way possible. And this is the reason why he said that appoint me over the storehouses of the land, I will be annoying Guardian, he was not bragging over here that I am

00:27:22--> 00:28:02

very knowledgeable, and I'm very trustworthy, no, he was not bragging, he was offering his services, and he was mentioning his strengths, so that he will be trusted. And so we learned that in general, it is not permissible, it is not something liked, that a person should go on talking about their strengths, and you know, their skills and their accomplishments that I have done this and I have done that and I'm capable of this and I'm capable of doing that. And he this is showing off it is not permissible unless there is a reason and what would that reason be, for example, here that he's offering his service. So when you're applying for a job, for example, it is completely permissible,

00:28:02--> 00:28:09

but in casual conversation, any This is not something that is pleasant for other people to put up with.

00:28:10--> 00:29:02

Walker Valley comma cannoli use to fulfill our job and thus we established use of in the land to settle there in wherever he will sopran Allah, he had so much freedom and power now, after so many restrictions, things change, but how? By the mercy of Allah, no sleep will be Allahumma Tina Manisha we touch with our mercy whom we will well I know we're a general mursaleen and we do not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good. Remember, Allah's mercy is variable mineral mosinee it is close, it is ever near to those who do good. So in difficulty in hardship, it is necessary that we focus on what we are able to do what we can do, and whatever it is that we can do, let us do it with

00:29:02--> 00:29:48

excellence in the best way possible. And that is a lesson that a person does the best that they can. Why because they know that my lord is watching me. And even if and and the meaning exam is that you do good as though you can see Allah and if you cannot bring about that feeling, then you remind yourself that Allah is watching you. This is what makes a person's actions. Excellent and beautiful. So when a person does a son, even in hardship, like Yusuf Alayhi Salam did, he was a moisten everywhere. And his son was basically his son, his patients that he did not give up and he did not get upset in the hardships that he endured, and he focused on what he could do. He was patient in

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

the well. He was patient as a slave. He was patient in the face of temptation. He was patient in the prison. Any he was patient everywhere, and he his patients was

00:30:00--> 00:30:51

that neither did he give up and get upset, nor did he focus on just his problems that you know, Woe is me. And this is so horrible. I'm being oppressed and this is unfair. No, he focused on what he could do. He contributed wherever that he was. He was excellent in worship, wherever that he was. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala has mercy reached him. At its right time, no slave will be Raj mattina, Manisha, well, our newly agilon mercy Nene. Allah does not waste the reward of those who do good, meaning sooner or later, Allah does reward them, even in this life. We learn in the Hadees that the help of Allah comes in proportion to the difficulty that a person endures. and patience

00:30:51--> 00:31:42

also comes in proportion to the trial. And so we see that because of his sobor because of his patients, he had his he had honor, because of his patients, even though he was oppressed, and he was humiliated by people. Allah subhanaw taala honored him. What a jewel, erotic hide, and surely the reward of the Hereafter is better. But for who little Idina armano What can we get the cone for those who believed and were fearing Allah, use of it as Sam didn't just have sobor he also had the COA, he feared Allah, because of which he refrained from sin. Even though the invitation was sin was not just once, but it was multiple times. So we see over here the reward in the world for those who

00:31:42--> 00:31:49

do good. And from that, just try to estimate just try to imagine what the reward in the hereafter will be.

00:31:51--> 00:32:19

has an adversary he said, that do not detest the misfortunes that befall you, for what you detest, may be the cause of your salvation, and what you like may be the cause of your ruin. So what is subud? What is the core that a person accepts the misfortune that has befallen them, and that that person has adequate meaning they do not inclined to sin and wrongdoing, just because they're having a difficult time.

00:32:20--> 00:33:02

Then another turn of events and the brothers of use of his salon came meaning they came to Egypt to buy food, because everywhere else in the area, there was famine. But in Egypt, use of ARIA Salaam had been prepared from before. And they entered upon him and he recognized them. But he was to them unknown, because they had gotten rid of him by throwing him in the well, they could have never imagined that this would be use of his cellar. And when he had furnished them with their supplies, he said, Bring me a brother of yours from your father, meaning your your your brother, that you did not bring this time, bring him on your next trip, and perhaps some conversation, it came out that

00:33:02--> 00:33:45

they had another brother back home, don't you see that I give full measure, and that I am the best of accommodators. Again, he's not showing off over here or praising himself, but he's building trust. But if you do not bring him to me, no measure will there be hereafter for you from me, nor will you approach me. They said, We will attempt to dissuade his father from keeping him and indeed, we will do it. And you'll suffer as Sam said to his servants, but their merchandise into their saddlebags meaning the payment they gave, put it back into their bags secretly without their knowledge. Why? So they might recognize it when they have gone back to their people, that perhaps

00:33:45--> 00:34:31

they will again return. So when they return to their father, they said oh, our Father, further measure has been denied to us. So send with us our brother, that we will be given measure, and indeed, we will be his guardians color hell Armando Kuma la color hell am Manu Kumar, la, la la cama Ameen to come Allah human Kabal, he said, should I entrust you with him except under coercion? As I entrusted you with his brother before? Should I make the same mistake? No, I'm not. But Allah is the best Guardian, you keep claiming that you will guard and protect. The fact is that Allah is the Guardian, and He is the Most Merciful, of the Merciful. So it is very clear here that the brothers

00:34:31--> 00:34:59

of use of a cinema had lost their trust, their father did not trust them anymore. Because a person when he lies over and over again, then they lose their credibility, then even their close ones don't rely on them anymore. They don't believe their words anymore. And we see here that our Cobra Islam says that for Allah who hate on half the law, Allah is the best guardian and the fact is that anything is safe when Allah subhanaw taala makes it

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

If so when you're leaving something, even if it's your loved ones, then give them in the protection of Allah subhanaw taala which I had set that I went to Iraq with someone and we met or the Lebanon remodel deal on war on him. When it was time to leave, he said, I do not have anything to give you. But I heard the Prophet sallallahu earlier said him say that when you leave something in Allah's protection, he guards it. So I entrust to Allah, your religion, your safety and the outcome of your deeds as though they're Allah Dena Kuma what Amana Tacoma, WA Hawa tema, Amma lucuma. And when they open their baggage, they found their merchandise returned to them. They said, Oh, our Father, what

00:35:41--> 00:36:26

more could we desire? Meaning if we go back, and we take our brother with us, because that's the only way that we can purchase more food, it will basically food that will be free of cost. This is our merchandise returned to us. And we will obtain supplies for our family and protect our brother and obtain an increase of a camels load. That is an easy measurement. So your Kubernetes Anam, he realized how it was necessary to send his children to buy more food because they were suffering from a drought. He said, Never will I send him with you until you give me a promise By Allah, that you will bring him back to me. So make a promise by Allah in Allah's Name, swear an oath, that you will

00:36:26--> 00:36:48

bring him back to me unless you should be surrounded by enemies. So we see that a believer is realistic. A believer does what they can they take the necessary measures for their protection. But they also realize that ultimately things are in Allah's control. Nothing can happen without the will of Allah.

00:36:49--> 00:37:36

And when they had given their promise, he said, Allah over what we say, is witness, meaning we rely on Allah subhanaw taala. I don't rely on you on your words, but I put my trust in Allah. And he said, All My Sons do not enter from one gate, but enter from different gates. Why did he say this? Because he had any these were 11 young men who were also very handsome. And if they're entering the city together, they would certainly draw attention. And it was possible that the locals would feel threatened, and it was possible that they would get affected by the evil eye. So this is why he told them to enter this way to avoid attracting any attention. But then he also made it clear that I

00:37:36--> 00:38:25

cannot avail you against the decree of Allah at all. Meaning despite my effort and my willingness to protect you, ultimately, Allah's decree will prevail. Now, remember that the evil eye it is definitely something real. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and I know how it is true, it is real, and its effect can really be disastrous. And remember, that the cause for evil eye is not only jealousy, it can also be looking at someone or something with excessive admiration, that can also lead to the evil eye. Basically, when a person looks at something with feelings of jealousy, or excessive admiration, then this is something that empowers shame upon and then show

00:38:25--> 00:39:13

plan is able to harm the person who is being stared at or even claim explained that it is like an arrow that launches to word the victim. And if the victim if the person is not shielded, then what happens is that the arrow hits him by the will of Allah. And in Hades we learn that the evil eye can literally land a person in their grave, or it can cause a person to suffer from severe illness to slip and fall and have strange unexplainable conditions. So your Kubernetes AMS strategy, where he told his children to enter from multiple gates but not together and not together at the same time from the same gate and he This proves that it is permissible to take precaution against evil eye.

00:39:14--> 00:39:56

But that precaution is not by using evil eye blockers that you can order off of Amazon. No it is not a black mark that you put, you know somewhere it is not a blue eye charm. It is not certain jewelry or amulets that you hang around your house or on your children. No, this is not the way to fortify yourself from the effects of the evil eye. It is to do what the prophet sallallahu Urdu said taught us and that is the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala we learned that the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said i'm used different of God to protect himself from the effect of the evil eye and then when the more or with a tan suit collaro the bureau will follow and call are with the Bureau of bananas when these

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

two suitors were revealed to him that he would recite them for his protection.

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

We should do the same thing, recite these for our protection morning and evening after every Salah whenever you feel afraid, and also teach your children to recite them on themselves in order to protect themselves and there is also other laws which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught for protection against the evil eye. And he said in in Wroclaw, Illa Lila, the decision is only for Allah. And this is something that we have to remember, because sometimes we take our precaution we read overdraws and still, you know, something happened. So, we wonder, did overdraws not work, know that there are always any it works, but the thing is, that, Allah subhanaw taala any, he decides

00:40:43--> 00:41:33

that something should touch you at a certain time. Why? Because even on the surface, it appears to be bad and harmful. In reality, it is good for you. In reality, it works in the favor of the believer. We learned that in the Quran when the believer say that could lay asleep burner Illa Khattab Allahu lenor, that nothing will reach us, nothing will hit us except for what Allah has decreed for us. What does that mean? It means that whatever that Allah has decreed for us, in regards to us, it is actually in our favor, even if it appears to be painful, and bad, and harmful. In reality, it is good for us. And this is something that we have to remember that for the believer,

00:41:33--> 00:42:17

really there is no harm. There is always the believer is always in a win win situation. So in ill health, no ill alila sometimes you read your doors, and you know, you take your precaution. And then still you see that you know you get sick or that what you like gets damaged, or that you suffer in your property, your family, and he still accept that with suburb and with the river. That Allah I know there is good in this for me, I trust your decision in in hook more inland Allah. He said la Hito Cal to upon him I have relied. And you see when you rely on someone, what does it mean, you believe in their plan? You don't question them. Because if you keep questioning them, and you keep

00:42:17--> 00:42:34

criticizing them their decision, that means that you have not relied on them, or lay he telecom to upon him, I have relied upon him let those who would rely, indeed rely. So he's teaching his children also that you should put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala.

00:42:35--> 00:43:19

And when they entered from where their father had ordered them, it did not avail them against Allah at all. Except it was a need within the sole of your code which he satisfied. Meaning despite all the care that he took, whatever was meant to happen, indeed happened, because Allah's Will prevails, and indeed, he was a possessor of knowledge, your Cobra de Sena was not superstitious. He did not tell his sons to do what he told them out of ignorance and superstition. But he gave those instructions based on knowledge. How was he knowledgeable because of what we had taught him, but most of the people do not know. We see this in the life of your Cobra, his salon, he tells his son

00:43:19--> 00:44:08

use of don't tell your dream to your brothers, otherwise they will conspire against you. But they conspired against him. Anyway, here he told his sons enter the city in this way, but they still got harmed anyway. And this is a beautiful lesson that we learn that you know what? Yes, you should take your precautions. And yes, you have to do what is in your in your ability. But at the end, remember that what is decreed for you will happen. But if you put your trust in Allah, and you believe you surrender, then Allah's plans will always work in your favor. And when they entered upon use of his salon, he took his brother video mean his full brother to himself, he embraced him. He hugged him,

00:44:08--> 00:44:54

he said, Indeed, I am your brother. So do not despair over what they used to do. Subhan Allah it says if he's telling them we're not going to talk about the bad things that happened, we're going to forget about it. Now. Let us enjoy our time together. The thing is that when we see our loved ones, yes, you know, we want to pour out our hearts with our you know, painful experiences and that is okay, any it's okay to talk about your painful experiences because that does bring you some kind of relief. But don't spend all of your time just talking about your painful past because that will make you dwell in your past. When Allah subhanaw taala has given you the opportunity to enjoy time with

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

your loved ones. then spend that in you know in good things, talking about

00:45:00--> 00:45:42

The blessings of Allah and enjoying the moment. Right and and enjoying and talking about the fact that Allah subhanaw taala. You know, he has still given you so much for guru, Allah, Allah, talk about the blessings of Allah so that you may be successful. Because when we talk about negative things, negative experiences, then we only increase in our worry and our sadness and our grief. So use of artists that I'm told them to old Binyamin, Fela tableta is Bhima. Can we are alone, just forget about what they have been doing. And this shows that use of artists and I'm had truly forgiven his brothers. This is the reason why he was not resentful. He was not vengeful, he was able

00:45:42--> 00:46:33

to move, move forward from his past and he gave the same message to his brother. Remember that forgiving people? Yes, it does not change the past. It does not what happened in the past is any it's it's written, it's recorded. But forgiving people allows you to enjoy your present life, and it makes your future more beautiful. So when you forgive someone, any you allow yourself to heal, if you keep poking at that same wound, it's not going to get better, it's not going to heal. You're only causing yourself to suffer for longer. So allow yourself to heal and forgive people so that you can enjoy the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given you. So when he had furnished them with

00:46:33--> 00:47:15

their supplies, he put the gold measuring bowl into the bag of his brother Binyamin meaning use of artists and and put that ball in the bag of Binyamin himself. And then an announcer called out all caravan. Indeed, you were thieves. Perhaps you surprised that I'm did that on purpose. Or perhaps he did that in order to give Binyamin a gift. So what happened? They said while approaching the brothers of use of art, I said I'm said what is it that you were missing? They said we are missing the measure the measuring cup of the kink and for he who produces it is the reward of a camels load and I am responsible for it. They said by Allah you have certainly known that we did not come to

00:47:15--> 00:47:58

cause corruption in the land, and we have not been thieves meaning don't call us thieves. We're not thieves. The accuser said then what would be its recompense if you should be liars. The brothers said its recompense is that he in whose bag it is found, he himself will be its recompense, meaning according to our law, the thief is imprisoned with who with the person whom he has stolen from, thus do We recompense the wrongdoers even though the law of Egypt was different, but the but the brothers of us have already said I mentioned a lot that they followed. So he began the search with their bags before the bag of his brother, then he extracted it from the bag of his brother. So now what

00:47:58--> 00:48:45

happened? Now Binyamin was seen as a thief, and what that meant was that Binyamin would be kept as a prisoner with who with use of art history. Thus did we plan for use of artisanal Allah planned this for use of earliest Salaam even if use of artisan I'm deliberately put that cup any how often does it happen that people try to make a plan but that plan doesn't always work. So if you suffer a salon intended to do this, any if this plan only worked by Allah subhanaw taala permission by his facilitation or any This means that you suffer and SLM did not plan this at all. He was just giving that cup as a gift. But then at the same time, the cup of the king went missing. And as they

00:48:45--> 00:49:31

searched for it, they discovered another cup, which belonged to use of it. He said I'm and not the king, and as a result, Binyamin would now be imprisoned with use of earliest sinner. Allah subhanaw taala, says mercan Eliot who the AHA who feed in Al Malik, he could not have taken his brother within the religion of the king, except that Allah will not follow the legitimate Nasha we raise in degrees, whom we will, will fall or could live here illman Eileen, but over every possessor of knowledge is one more knowing. Meaning. No matter how knowledgeable a person is, there is always someone else who knows more than them. And someone else who knows more than them and someone else

00:49:31--> 00:49:55

who knows more than them until Allah subhanaw taala He knows everything he is early will they be with Shahada? So a person should be humble with regards to their knowledge, no person should think that I know everything, and I've got everything in control. No, this is all knowledge is with Allah subhanaw taala and if you know something, this is Allah subhanaw taala has favor upon you.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

They said if he steals a brother of his history

00:50:00--> 00:50:44

And before Subhana Allah ne it shows how much they hated use of a Salaam that even after all of these years, they had not forgotten him. So when Binyamin was accused of theft, they distance themselves immediately from him. And they said that well, a brother of his once upon a time also committed theft, Yusuf Ali Salam did not commit theft, so use of captured within himself, he was so composed, he remained silent over here, and he did not reveal it to them, he did not reveal his identity to them. And this is sub any he could have said that. What do you mean, I committed theft? Do you know who I am? How dare you accuse me, he he could have come against them with full force.

00:50:44--> 00:51:33

And yes, that would have satisfied his ego. But it would not have brought about a good outcome. suberb patience includes being silent at times, not saying anything in response. Why? Because if you don't remain silent over there, then the problem is gone, is only going to get worse. And then shaytaan is going to get the better of the situation. So speak when it is beneficial and remain silent when speaking is harmful. This is also from wisdom. So use of early salon was patient over here. He didn't say anything. But he said in his heart that he were worse in position hinny how bad you're accusing me of something I never did. But look at you. After all these years, you still

00:51:33--> 00:52:20

harbor such ill feelings. And Allah is most knowing of what you describe what a beautiful statement. Anytime someone accuses you of something that is not in you, and you are not in a position to defend yourself, then remind yourself that you know what Allah knows, Allah knows the truth of the situation. And if Allah knows, that is sufficient, because he will bring about justice. They said or Aziz Subhana Allah just moments ago, they call the use of artists and I'm a thief. And now because they don't know It is him. They call him Aziz. Oh, honorable one. Indeed, he has a father who is an old man. So take one of us in place of him in Nana Raka middleware see need, indeed we see you as a

00:52:20--> 00:53:10

Dewar of good Subhana Allah, they call him a moisten as well. Use of ARIA Sam was truly a Morrison, consistently good and generous, consistently, as a slave in the prison. And now even when he has so much power and authority, he is a blessing. So his brothers also who actually hate him, when they don't recognize him, they're able to see his ersan he said, I seek the refuge of Allah, to prevent that we take except him with whom we found our possession, meaning May Allah protect me, that I should do something like this. Indeed, we would then be unjust, meaning there is no way that I will be unjust here. So when they had despaired of him, they realized that he is not going to budge. They

00:53:10--> 00:53:55

secluded themselves in private consultation, the eldest of them said, Do you not know that your father has taken upon you and oath by Allah, and that before you failed in your duty to use of now they're thinking about use of early cinema, so I will never leave this land until my father permits me or Allah decides for me, and he is the best of judges will who will hire on hacky mean, he said, return to your father and say, oh, our Father, indeed Your son has stolen, and we did not testify except to what we knew. Meaning we wouldn't call him a thief, unless we had seen with our own eyes, that the cup was extracted from his bag. And we were not witnesses of the unseen, meaning we didn't

00:53:55--> 00:54:41

see him commit the theft. We just saw the cup being extracted from his belongings and ask the city in which we were and the caravan in which we came, and indeed, we are truthful. They're trying so hard to convince their father that we are speaking the truth. We're not making this up. We did not do something to Binyamin just as we did to use of once upon a time but he our Cobra his Salaam, said, rather, your souls have enticed you to something so panela they're not believable at all. Because you see the pattern was the same. We learned that a person keeps on lying, until he has written before Allah a liar. And remember, the boy who cried wolf, this is the problem with lying,

00:54:41--> 00:54:59

that a person loses their credibility that when even they're truthful, people don't believe them. So yeah, Kubernetes and I'm sad for sabalan Jimmy so patience is most fitting, perhaps Allah will bring them to me all together. Indeed it is he who is the knowing the why

00:55:00--> 00:55:22

sapan Allah jacobellis salam has now lost three sons of his. But he says for sablon Jimmy, and how incredibly hopeful he is. He says perhaps Allah will bring all of them back and remember arsa when it's used for Allah subhanaw taala perhaps Allah perhaps doesn't mean maybe, no, it means for sure.

00:55:23--> 00:56:15

So why is it that iacobelli salaam is so hopeful because now his trial was getting even harder, before he had lost only one son. And now all of a sudden he had lost three sons, three sons were removed from him. So this is a fact that when things get really really difficult, then relief is actually near. It is very close. This is something that Allah subhanaw taala shows to us, even in the nature that is around us the creation that is around us, that when the night darkens, Daybreak is near. So this is why your Cobra Sam says for sovereign Jimmy, I am going to have beautiful patients and in the Quran Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned subbrand Jimmy Hedren Jeremy and

00:56:15--> 00:56:39

Suffern Jamil sovereign Jamil is to be patient beautifully with dignity, with contentment and without any complaint. And headroom, Jimmy is to leave those who bother you in terms of of your religion without causing any harm to them. And suffering Jamil is to pardon someone who has annoyed you without getting upset with them.

00:56:40--> 00:57:26

And he turned away from them. And he said, Oh my sorrow over use of and his eyes became white from grief. He cried so much he became blind. For he was of that a suppressor? Meaning Yes, he was grieving a lot. But he also suppressed his grief. Meaning he cried, but he did not wail. So remember, it is permissible to cry. What is wrong is wailing. Crying is not wrong. Being able to cry is actually a cause of inviting Allah subhanaw taala is mercy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Listen, Allah does not punish for the weeping of the eye, nor the sadness of the heart. But he punishes for this meaning for the tongue, or he shows mercy. Meaning because of what you say

00:57:26--> 00:58:11

in grief, either you get punishment, or you get mercy from Allah soprano Tada. And he pointed towards his tongue at the same time. So being able to cry is a sign of soft heartedness. And there's nothing wrong with that. But that crying should not turn into whaling. Because two sounds we've already had ether cursed in this world and in the hereafter. One is the sound of mismarked wrongful celebration, in a time of blessing that a person becomes very boastful and there is music and there's, you know, screaming out of extreme joy in these kind of sounds, noises. Allah does not like and wailing at the time of mostly. And remember, wailing is something that invites shaitan we

00:58:11--> 00:59:00

learned that from Salah when her husband died Abu Salah when he died, she said that I am going to whale in such a way that people are going to remember my wailing, they're going to talk about the way that I wailed. So she she went into her house in order to whale and another woman also in a she went to to join her in whaling. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do you want to admit shavon into a house from which Allah subhanaw taala expelled him? You need if you're going to wail in this way, you're not going to invite Allah's mercy. You are only going to invite Shea upon. So remember that in sadness, crying is perfectly fine. But we have to control the sounds that we

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

make the words that we say. They said by Allah, you will not seize remembering use of sopran Allah there were so many harsh with our Cobra, he said, he is crying. And basically they're telling him Stop crying, stop remembering use, even though he was not complaining to them. But they didn't like the fact that he was grieving. And there are some people like that who who do not empathize with those who are hurt. They said you will continue to remember him until you become fatally ill, or become of those who perish. Karla innama a scuba fever Hosni Illa Allah, he said, I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah. This is sovereign, Jamil Heaney. I am not complaining to you I

00:59:47--> 01:00:00

not crying before you Because remember, he had turned away from them. And there he cried before Allah insula in Dora. But they didn't like that either. They got annoyed by that. So he said, I called

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

complain of my suffering in my grief to Allah and this is completely permissible. When you are sad, then yes, complain to Allah, don't complain to people cry before Allah. This does not contradict sobor there's nothing wrong with that. And he said, I know from Allah, that which you do not know, this is why I am hopeful and look at his hope. He says, Oh my son's go and find out about use of and his brother and despair not of relief from Allah. Indeed, no one despair is of relief from Allah except the disbelieving people. So remember, a believer because of his Eman And Allah, He remains hopeful that okay, even though this loss is huge, this pain is very severe. Allah subhanaw taala is

01:00:46--> 01:01:30

such that viatical hide in your hand, oh, Allah is all good. So I expect the best from you. So the believer because of his email, does not despair, of relief from Allah, he feels sad, but he does not give up on Allah despair is to give up on Allah, that Allah will not heal me, Allah will not help me that Allah will abandon me, this is something that does not benefit the person who believes in Allah. So when they entered upon us, so if they said, or Aziz adversity has touched us and our family, and we have come with good, and we have come with goods, poor in quality, but give us full measure, and be charitable to us. So indirectly, they're asking him, be charitable to us. Meaning

01:01:30--> 01:02:21

please, as a favor to us, let our brother go. Indeed, Allah rewards the charitable. So basically, they're there in their came before use of artists that I'm in a very, any humbled state. And they were almost begging for food. They were almost begging for, you know him to be generous to them to give them charity. And these are the people who had harmed use of RT his center, not just physically but also verbally before him, and also behind his back, Kenny, this is something so painful to bear. Right? But you Safari has sat down, look at him, his heart melts. He says, He says, Do you know what you did with use of and his brother, when you were ignorant? Allahu Akbar. He could have made them

01:02:21--> 01:03:05

feel horrible at this time by recounting their crimes and failures, that you know what? You are in such a pathetic state? Look at me. You tried to harm me, but guess what you couldn't. And you remember when you did this? And you did that? And you did this? And you did that. And now you're asking me for charity. Get away from me. I'm not going to give you anything. He could have taken revenge over here. But look at him. He just mentions enough so that they understand they remember they realize who he is. And he gives the benefit of the doubt he says in Anton j Lune. When you were ignorant when you didn't know any better, meaning it's okay. Now you know, now you're older. Now you

01:03:05--> 01:03:54

understand. So we see how gentle use of his center was. Remember, even if we have to point out someone's mistake, we should do so in a gentle way. Not in a harsh way. Because with gentleness, we get the results which we cannot get with harshness. So we see here that use of alia Salaam he was gentle, and what results did this produce? Look at the brothers of use of his salon? They said in Nicola anta use of they said are you indeed use of he said I am use of and this is my brother, Allah has certainly favored us. I mean, this has only Allah, US favor on us, indeed, he who fears Allah and his patient, that Indeed Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good. And

01:03:54--> 01:04:44

his brother said they that By Allah, certainly Allah has preferred you over us. And indeed We have been sinners look at them, they admit their mistake. So one way of making people realize their mistake is by shaming them, by being harsh towards them by embarrassing them. And the other is to do so gently. When a person does so gently. Then Allah subhana wa tada adds beauty to that situation. And because of that beauty, look at the results. The results are also good and excellent. So Yusuf Ali Salaam, said are the man Allahu Allah, that Allah has indeed been kind to us. Any he could have said over here that, you know, I survived. It was tough, but I survived. He doesn't mention any

01:04:44--> 01:04:59

pain, any suffering that he endured because of what his brothers did to him. What did he mentioned here? the favors of Allah. The thing is that there are some people who view themselves as victims, no matter what happens.

01:05:00--> 01:05:48

So once I was able, I so and so's jealousy, you know their mean words. And because it's so cold and because the nights are short, and because I am fasting, and because of this and because of that any always viewing themselves as victims, and such people there are negative, they spread negativity, and they're unable to make the make you know that they're unable to enjoy their life. they're unable to maintain healthy relationships. And then there are people who are able to look past those bitter experiences, and they're able to see, you know, what, yes, I suffered, but I also got something. Yes, it was hard. But Alhamdulillah Allah also blessed me. And this is the attitude that we need to

01:05:48--> 01:06:37

develop in our lives. The other man, Allahu Allah, Allah has truly favored us. He has truly bestowed huge blessings upon us. This is a way of sugar. And then he says that in the Houma yet the keyway, elsewhere, for in Allahu Allah, you'll do agilon, worsening. There's three words over here, the Aqua, the fear of Allah Subhan, patience, and sn being excellent in what a person does. And these three things, these three qualities, lead use of earliest salon to his success. This is what made him successful. So if you want things to be in your favor, regardless of your circumstances, then these are the three things that we need to do the pull of Allah in every situation that I must not

01:06:37--> 01:07:23

do or say, what Allah will be displeased with, and then suffer, that bear the hardship, any Don't, don't go on falling before the hardship and giving up Barrett with strength for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and the one who tries then Allah subhanaw taala also helps him and this is a person that this is excellence. This is what allows a person to do good when you avoid wrong when you are patient, only then you have the energy, the strength to focus on doing good. Otherwise, if you're stuck in self pity, then you cannot do much good. So this is the fruit of dukkha and suffer that Allah does not waste the reward of such a person. They said by Allah certainly has Allah preferred

01:07:23--> 01:08:16

you over us and indeed we have been sinners. Look at that. They admitted their mistake. This is how use of rd Salaam turned his enemies into his friends by repelling evil with good. And you know what, when someone has harmed you, one is that you try to take revenge yourself. How, by backbiting by planning how to, you know harm them by, you know, becoming a victim. And the other is that you seek the help of Allah subhanaw taala you seek Allah's help through sub through patience. And when you do that, you're able to rise above the situation. And you're able to make the most of the situation. This is why the last panel Tara says in the far ability here are some repel with that which is best

01:08:16--> 01:08:56

meaning if someone does bad to you, then do the best that you can in return. And that is what use of early sounded. He said no blame will there be upon you today? So he forgave them after so much. And you see latter three, this means that I will not even mention, we're not even going to talk about what happened. We're just gonna move past it. We're going to forget about it. Because you see, sometimes what happens is that we tell people yeah, I forgive you. But then we keep reminding them. Remember what you did. Remember what you said, Remember this, remember that? Yo fetullah hula comb, not only does he forgive them, he also prays for their forgiveness May Allah forgive you, He gives

01:08:56--> 01:09:42

them hope Allah will forgive you. Well, who will our hammer raha mean and He is the Most Merciful of those who showed mercy. We think that if we forgive people, then any we are missing out any This is we are being unfair to ourselves, but the fact is that a person who forgives others, then Allah Subhana, WA tada raises them in honor, for a full year izuku Allah, pardon and Allah will give you honor, in a Hadees we learn charity does not in any way decrease the wealth of a person and the servant who forgives, then Allah adds to his respect the person who forgives that Allah adds to his respect. In another Hadees we learn he who does not show mercy. Allah does not show mercy to him and

01:09:42--> 01:10:00

he who does not forgive, then he is not forgiven. So if we want to be forgiven, we should also show forgiveness. He said take this my shirt and cast it over the face of my father, he will become seeing and bring me your family all together. So panela the first shirt that

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

Was stained with blood started the ordeal of use of aviar Cobra Salaam and now another shirt use of his Salaam scented why so that he would he would be able to see again, it was not something in the shirt, but the thing is that it was the grief that was in the heart of your Cobra, his salon that had caused him to become blind, and only when his grief would depart, would he return to, to becoming bullied again, and his grief would only depart now when he would be with use of his solo. So this is why the smell of us have already a salon. It was that that was taken by his shirt, and he that is how jacobellis and I was able to see again. And when the caravan departed from Egypt.

01:10:49--> 01:11:33

And when the caravan departed from Egypt, their father said indeed I find the smell of use of and I would say that he is alive if you do not think me weekend in mind, meaning you think I'm crazy, but I actually smell use of, but Allah subhanaw taala enabled him to smell use of at this time, because there was a time when use of Arsenal was not far from home, he was in the well. And our Cobra Islam didn't know where he was. They said by Allah, indeed, you are in your same old error, how disrespectful. And when the bearer of good news arrived, he cast it over his space. And he returned once again, seeing he said, Did I not tell you that I know from Allah, that which you do not know

01:11:33--> 01:12:20

this at all, our father asked for us forgiveness of our sins. Indeed, we have been sinners. He said, I will ask forgiveness for you from my Lord. Indeed, it is he who is the Forgiving and Merciful. And when they entered upon use of he took his parents to himself, he hugged them, and he said, enter Egypt, Allah willing, safe and secure. And he raised his parents upon the throne. And all of them bowed to him in prostration. And he said, Oh, my father, this is the explanation of my vision of before this is my dream. My dream is coming to reality. My Lord has made it a reality. And he was certainly good to me when he took me out of prison, and brought you here from bedwin life after

01:12:20--> 01:13:05

shaitan had induced estrangement between me and my brothers. Indeed, my lord is subtle in what He wills. Indeed, it is he who is the knowing the wise, so the dream of use of artists and he saw the sun, the moon, the stars prostrating to him. Now this was actually happening. You see, the sun is in the day, and the moon is in the night. And the stars are also in the night. But here, they were together in his dream they were together. And we see that right now was also a beautiful family reunion, where use of early cinammon, his brothers and his parents, all of them were united again, after having been separated. My Lord, look at his dog, or because I tighten him in a model where I

01:13:05--> 01:13:51

learnt any mentor will Hades, my Lord, You have given me something of sovereignty, if I have this, this is your gift. And you have taught me of the interpretation of dreams. He doesn't say, Oh, I got all of this because of my knowledge. No, he remembers the source of his knowledge. Allah gave me this knowledge or Creator of the heavens and the earth. You are my protector in this world. And in the hereafter caused me to die a Muslim and join me with the righteous. There is no pride over here. He is so humble over here, and sopran Allah, he has everything. He has sovereignty, he has knowledge, he has his family, he's on good terms with his brothers. And his heart is attached to

01:13:51--> 01:14:38

who, to Allah until Allah ye You are my Wali, all along, you have always been there. And this is a fact. Because people, even those who we love, and we trust and they love us in return. They cannot always be by our side. We cannot always have them with us. The reality is that people no matter how good they are, no matter how sincere they are, they're not permanent. They're not dependable, because they're imperfect. The only being that is dependable is Allah subhanaw taala so befriend him until Willa Yee. And how do you befriend Allah subhanaw taala that no matter what situation you are in, you have DACA you have sobald you do Hassan, you remember that? He is watching you, you act as

01:14:38--> 01:14:59

though you can see him. You are my Wali in this world and in the Hereafter, and what is his concern to a funny Muslim and well how can he be slightly hain You see, when dunya leaves our hands we become poor. But when the dunya leaves the heart, then a person becomes a Wali of Allah use of farnesol does not attach to it.

01:15:00--> 01:15:49

Any of these worldly things. He is attached to a Lhasa panel tada and he prays for death upon Islam, that Oh Allah when I die, I ask you that you enable me to surrender to you even at that moment. Because remember, the blessings can only be complete and perfect on a person. If that person leaves this world in a state of submission to Allah, and this is why we should pray for a good end. Allah Houma toa Fatah mostly mean what a Hina muslimeen will Hakuna decidely hain later Hosea Well, I'm of TuneIn that Oh Allah raised us as Muslims meaning when we leave this world allow us to die as Muslims. The final Dora of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alone little fiddly. What?

01:15:49--> 01:16:31

How many? What unhackable Rafi? Oh ALLAH forgive me Have mercy on me and join me with the best company with the highest company. They rarely come in Amber, it'll hide that is from the news of the unseen which we reveal to you, and you are not with them. When they put together their plan. Well, they conspired. So you only know of this through revelation. And most of the people, although use try for it are not believers. They don't believe they don't understand. And you do not ask of them for it any payment. It is not accepted reminder to the worlds and how many assign within the heavens and the earth to do the Passover while they while they're there from our turning away. And most of

01:16:31--> 01:17:14

them believe not in Allah, except while they associate others with him. Then, as they live their lives in such heedlessness, that they don't pay attention to Allah or his ayat. And do they feel secure, that they will not come to them an overwhelming aspect of the punishment of Allah, or that the hour will not come upon them suddenly, while they do not perceive should fear Allah say, this is my way I invite to Allah with insight, and I and those who follow me and Exalted is Allah, and I am not of those who associate others with him. And we sent not before you as messengers, except men, to whom we revealed from among the people of the cities, so have they not traveled through the earth

01:17:14--> 01:17:57

and observed how was the end of those before them, and the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah, then will you not use reason? They continued until when the messengers despaired and we're certain that they had been denied their came to them our victory meeting when things got really tough, as we see even in the story of use of Rania, Sarah. Then Allah's help came, then victory came, and whoever we willed, was saved, and our punishment cannot be repelled from the people who are criminals. There was certainly in their stories, a lesson for those of understanding never was the Quran, a narration invented, but a confirmation of what was before it, and a detailed

01:17:57--> 01:18:43

explanation of all things and guidance and mercy for people who believe so where the story is a proof of the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam of the Quran, it also teaches us many lessons. But those lessons are only relevant to those of understanding the story encourages us to observe the core Saba Hassan, to put our faith in Allah. This story teaches us that ultimately, Allah is in control of everything, that things are not happening at random, the gifts that you have the losses that you experience, the freedoms that Allah has given you. The restrictions that you experience in life, all of them are planned by Allah. This is not all random. So if you want to be

01:18:43--> 01:19:30

successful, through the different stages of your life, through the different trials, through the darkness, and through light, then you have to have subud and toccoa because they are the foundation of success. sola toward Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, lF Lam Meem rah, these are the verses of the book, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth. But most of the people do not believe it is Allah who erected the heavens without pillars that you can see. Then he established Himself above the Throne, and made subject the sun and the moon, each running its course for a specified term, he arranges each matter, he details the signs that you may have the meeting with

01:19:30--> 01:19:59

your Lord be certain Subhan Allah, the sun and the moon are subjected. It means that if the sun and the moon which are the biggest things that we see in the sky, this means that the rest of the stars are also subjected, and they are mentioned here specifically because they're the most obvious and most useful to us. And it is he who spread the earth and placed there in firmly set mountains and rivers and from all of the fruits he made there in two minutes.

01:20:00--> 01:20:49

He causes the night to cover the day, indeed in that are Signs for people who give thought. So we see that even in fruits, there are different kinds different varieties. And in certain produce, there's the male and the female, any This is mentioned in the Quran, and within the land, our neighboring plots, and gardens of grape vines and crops and palm trees, growing several from a root or otherwise watered with one water, but we make some of them exceed others in quality of fruit, indeed, in that are Signs for people who reason, so panela, the water is the same, the Earth is the same, and at times the tree is the same, but the fruit, any one is sweet, more delicious, and the

01:20:49--> 01:21:39

other is less delicious. So all of this variation that Allah has created in the creation, in terms of different types of land, different types of plants, different types of, you know, flavors, different types of, you know, different levels of quality, all of this variation. This is not just something that we benefit from, and use. But this is something that should provoke us to reflect over this life, all over how fragile life is and how knowledgeable how merciful how wise how perfect, the creator is. And if you are admonished, sorry. And if you are astonished, if you are amazed, then astonishing is they're saying, when we are dust, will we indeed be brought into a new

01:21:39--> 01:22:28

creation, meaning if their disbelief amazes you, then yes, what they say is truly astonishing. It is shocking. Those are the ones who have disbelieved in their Lord, and those will have shackles upon their necks. And those are the companions of the Fire. They will abide there in eternally. They impatiently urge you to bring about evil before a good meeting. Instead of asking for guidance. They asked for punishment, while there has already occurred before them similar punishments to what they demand. And indeed your Lord is full of forgiveness for the people despite their wrongdoing. And indeed your Lord is severe in penalty sopran Allah, what a balance your Lord is ladoo Mughal filati

01:22:28--> 01:23:13

leanness, and he is also an usher deedle record. So always remain between hope and fear that he has Allah forgives people despite their wrongdoing. But he has also made clear that his punishment is severe. So a person should neither become overly fearful, because then that leads to despair. Nor should a person become overly hopeful, because this leads to transgression, we should have both fear and hope, but from the to slightly more hope, because having more hope is encouraging. It is something that motivates a person, we learned that a man was close to his death and the Prophet sallallahu early sent him asked him how do you feel? And he said, I have hope in Allah. But I also

01:23:13--> 01:23:56

fear my sins. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, these two things meaning hope and fear, do not coexist in the heart of a person in a situation like this. But Allah will give him that which he hopes for, and keeps him safe from that which he fears. And those who disbelieved, say, Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord, You are only a warner. And for every people is a guide, the Prophet sallallahu where it isn't, it was not sent to, you know, show a miracle upon miracle. This was not supposed to be like a show, a magic show. No, he was supposed to give warning. Allah knows what every female carries whether human or animal, what is in the uterus, what is in the

01:23:56--> 01:24:45

womb of a woman, and what is going on inside of her body. Sometimes even she is completely unaware. Allah knows what is going on inside, what she is carrying, and what the wombs lose or exceed, because there's growth inside the womb and a times outside the womb, outside the uterus, any and how things appear and the disappear. All of this alone knows about it. And a woman also has no idea what's going on inside of her body. And everything with him is by deal measure, meaning everything has a specific quantity. And you see for a woman to go through a miscarriage for example is very painful for a woman to live with. And to live with certain conditions can be very painful fibroids

01:24:45--> 01:24:59

and you know other conditions very, very painful. But remember, where everything is by deal measure, Allah knows what is going on. So ask him for Shiva asked him to heal you to take that pain away. Early will he be washed

01:25:00--> 01:25:48

herder. He is the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed and cubbyhole masal the grand the exalted. This is why, express his glory, glorify Him, exalt Him and say when you begin Allah Subhana Allah Houma will be handed. What about aka smoke? What are our larger Duke? Well, our ilahi ROC express his glory, because these words are the most beloved words to Allah subhanaw taala. So remain calm, it is the same to him concerning you, whether one conceals his speech or one publicize it, publicizes it, and whether one is hidden by night, or conspicuous among others by day, meaning no matter what a person does, expresses, verbally, or keeps it in his heart, or a person is alone or

01:25:48--> 01:26:37

somewhere out and about, there is no place, no state, no condition that is hidden from Allah subhanaw taala laahu more akeeba to membrane Nia de waman, healthy for Luna, who am an umbrella, not only does Allah know about where we are, what we're doing what we're thinking, but Allah has also appointed angels over us. So it is said for each one are successive angels before and behind him. Successive angels because these angels come in shifts, they came, they come in turns, and these angels are before and behind every person. What do they do, who protect him, they protect the person, how, by the decree of Allah Subhana Allah, angels guarding human beings from the front and

01:26:37--> 01:27:26

from the back. Any we don't care that much about ourselves as much as Allah subhanaw taala cares about us, we don't guard and protect ourselves as much as Allah subhanaw taala guards us and he is watching us and his knowledge alone is enough. But along with that, he has also appointed angels any look at the length to which any Allah is guarding us, he is protecting us, and that shows His endless Mercy is Rama, which I had said, there is no person who does not have an there is no person except that he has an angel appointed to protect him when he is asleep, and when he is awake, against what against the jinn, other people and even savage beasts. None of these come to him, but

01:27:26--> 01:28:12

the angel tells him keep away stay away, except for that which Allah has given permission to befall him. Then the angel moves aside and what is meant to hit the person hits him, what is meant to reach him and infect him infects him. So it is only by the protection of Allah. And especially when a person recites ayatul kursi. We learned that when a person recites idol could see that in the night especially before going to bed, then there is a Hatfield, a guardian that is appointed by Allah over that person who will not allow shaylen to come near him until the morning and if you say 10 times after mohareb La ilaha illAllah hula hula sharika lah whole moon koala will hand you here where you

01:28:12--> 01:28:58

meet where who are allowed to Alicia included you say this 10 times after mohareb. Then we learn that the angels guardian angels in evey come to protect a person for the entire night. Karbala cabal he said that if Allah had not appointed angels to guard when you are eating when you're drinking and in your privacy, then certainly the jinn would have snatched you away meaning you would not be alive you would not be able to live. So Allah subhanaw taala has appointed these angels to guard us to guard us against all types of evils and harms and dangers those we can see and those that we cannot see those that are invisible to us. And these angels also guard our deeds. Yeah for Luna humann

01:28:58--> 01:29:39

umbrella they guard our deeds. So in our Aleikum le havoline killed almond Cathy been Yara Yara, la Muna, matter of alone. So Allah knows what we say what we keep inside. And the angels also do. Which is why when a person intends to do something good, the endl Records it as a good deed. When a person actually does it. It's recorded as 10. And when a person intends to do something evil, it's not recorded. But if a person changes his mind that Noah suffered a lot, this was not right, than the angels recorded as something good. And when a person intensity and when a person does something bad then the angels do not record the sin immediately. They wait for some time. So yeah, for Luna woman

01:29:39--> 01:29:59

amarilla, guarding us how grateful we should be to Allah subhanaw taala for the blessing of these angels, Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intense for people ill there is no repelling it and there is not for them besides Him. Any

01:30:00--> 01:30:42

patron It is he who shows you lightning causing fear and aspiration and generates the heavy clouds sopran Allah, what we see in the sky, any lightning massive clouds, different colors, they inspire us with fear and hope at the same time. And he it's also a beautiful yet so frightening. It's all inspiring. And this is why when we look at what is in the sky, with for example, lightning and huge clouds, yes, we should feel happy that okay there will be rain and there is rain, and that is Allah's mercy. But there should also be fear, because that is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam responded when there was a storm approaching.

01:30:44--> 01:31:29

And the thunder exalts Allah with praise of him and we learned in the narration that of Lord thunder, Allah is also the name of an angel. And the sound is actually the sound of thunder is the sound of that Angel glorifying of LA, one Mullah eager to minifee 40. And the angels as well from fear of him Subhana Allah, this is what we should do. When we feel fear of Allah, we should glorify Allah, we should do the speed, and he sends thunderbolts and strikes there with whom He wills while they dispute about Allah, meaning here they are forgetting Allah disputing about him, Does God Exist? How many gods are there? What are the attributes of God? Is God here or there? Is he above?

01:31:29--> 01:31:31

Or is he there any?

01:31:32--> 01:32:00

This is so despicable that we are just wasting our time disputing about Allah. Even amongst Muslims, there's so many debates and so much dispute concerning Allah subhanaw taala. And he, this is something that we should be fearful of. And it see this has mentioned well, whom you Jad, the donor phila, why why should they don't be held, when you talk about Allah, talk about him with absolute respect, and he has severe an assault.

01:32:01--> 01:32:16

So when we hear thunder, any we should have fear of Allah, or the lebens obaidul dilla horn who, when he would hear thunder, he would become quiet. And he would say, Subhanallah you said be her to be handy? Well, Mullah ecademy,

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

he would say

01:32:20--> 01:33:12

Subhana Allah you sub be heard to be handy, while Mullah he ketamine, he fatty that Glory be to the one who whom the thunder praises with his praise. And the angels also glorify out of his fear. So when we hear the sound of thunder, this is not a time to keep talking, and keep, you know, discussing random things. This is a time that we become silent, we hear the sound of thunder, we allow ourselves to feel afraid of Allah subhanaw taala and then channel that fear into glorifying and praising him. Lahu Dawa, to help to Him alone is the supplication of truth. And those they call upon besides Him, do not respond to them with a thing except as one who stretches his hand toward

01:33:12--> 01:33:54

water from afar, calling it to reach his mouth, but it will never reach it. Meaning if a person wants water, and he just extends his hand and says, Come here, come here, it's never going to come. And just like that, when a person calls upon the creation, worshiping the creation, then there is going to be no answer. And the supplication of the disbelievers is not but an error, meaning it is futile It is useless, and to Allah prostrates whoever is within the heavens and the earth, willingly or by compulsion, and their shadows as well in the mornings and the afternoons. So when our body our shadow prostrates to Allah, we should prostrate to Allah willingly. And this is why this this is an

01:33:54--> 01:34:35

if such the meaning when you do it's still our when you recite it, or when you listen to its recitation, then you should also make such though if possible, make such the willingly to practically exhibit that submission to Allah, that Allah I surrender to you by choice, say, who is Lord of the heavens and earth? Say, Allah say, Have you ever been taken besides them allies not possessing even for themselves any benefit or any harm, say is the blind equivalent to the seeing? Or is the darkness equivalent to light or have they attribute it to Allah partners who created like his creation, so that the creation of each seems similar to them, say, Allah is the Creator of all

01:34:35--> 01:34:59

things and he is the one the prevailing he sends down water from the sky, rain and and valleys flow according to their capacity. And the torrent the flood carries a rising form, and from that, or which the heat and the fire desiring adornments and utensils is a form like it, meaning when such metals are heated in the fire

01:35:00--> 01:35:49

Then form appears at the surface at the time also. Thus Allah presents the example of truth and falsehood. As for the form, eventually it vanishes being cast off, you throw it away. But as for that, which benefits the people that gold any that remains on the earth, that Thus does Allah present examples. So we see that rain is mentioned over here. And we learned that revealed knowledge is similar to rain. Because with this knowledge is the life of the heart, just as with rain is the life of the body and the earth. And the place of knowledge is the heart. And just as different types of land respond differently to rain hearts also respond differently to knowledge. Some river beds

01:35:49--> 01:36:27

are such that they're very deep, very spacious, and they're able to contain a lot of water, they fill up with rainwater. And some hearts are also like that. They make room for a lot of knowledge and wisdom. They accept it, they act upon it, they believe in it. So Allah subhanaw taala increases them in their knowledge in their understanding, he blesses them with wisdom. And there are other people who have very little capacity this Uh, no, I don't like this No, this is uh, this is problematic, but what about this and what about that, so, each person takes according to their capacity, and according to their interest. And we see that when, when there is rain and the

01:36:27--> 01:37:10

riverbeds you know, they, they, they get flooded, the garbage, the phone rises to the surface, just like that when the heart is filled with knowledge revealed knowledge, you are able to recognize your own weaknesses, you're able to recognize your own deficiencies, they rise to the surface knowledge allows you to see yourself to understand yourself. So now you have the option, what are you going to do are you going to get rid of that garbage that has appeared to you, or are you just going to let it be an putrefy and remember that when there's garbage that is sitting on top of water, eventually it's going to rot, and it's going to make the water dirty as well. So, once you come to know of your

01:37:10--> 01:38:01

weaknesses, then work on getting rid of them seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. And then we see that similar foam and dirt appears on on the ore that is heated in the fire. Like for example, when gold is heated in the fire, it is purified. And as it is purified, that you know the dirt appears at the top. And you know going through heat is something painful. And just like that, Allah subhanaw taala puts a person in hardship through different life experiences. And that is when a person is able to apply what they know apply their knowledge and difficulties purify a person just as heat fire, it purifies gold and silver, then you're able to become something before it was just

01:38:01--> 01:38:53

or and now after being heated and purified that or has turned into a useful utensil or an adornment. So we see the benefit of knowledge here and life experiences. So accept them and improve yourself with what you learn. And, and and allow the different life experiences to teach you different lessons so that you can become better than before. For those who have responded to their Lord and responding to Allah Spanish Allah means obeying Allah, responding to his decrees, with patients with rare law, with with acceptance. So for those who have responded to their Lord, with obedience, Allah commands, they accept the obey, Allah decrees this they surrender. So for them is the best reward.

01:38:53--> 01:39:25

But those who did not respond to him, if they had all that is in the earth entirely and the like of it with it, they would attempt to ransom themselves thereby those will have the worst account severe interrogation for all of their sins, and yet no forgiveness and their refuge as hell and wretched is the resting place, then is He who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth, like one who is blind, can they be the same? No, they will only be reminded who are people of understanding

01:39:27--> 01:39:59

who those who fulfill the covenant of Allah and do not break the contract, and those who join that which Allah has ordered to be joined and fear their Lord and are afraid of the evil of their account. Several qualities are mentioned over here. One is that they join what Allah has ordered to be joined and that is blood ties, blood relationships, and these are definitely difficult to maintain, and even harder to join once they have broke

01:40:00--> 01:40:26

Once they have become problematic once they have become estranged, but if they are multi Longhorn, who he said that he who fears as Lord because you see, crusher has mentioned hope as mentioned in the same if he who fears his Lord and joins ties of relationship, then his life will be extended, his wealth will be increased, and his family will love him. Look at what use of Rene surrounded, isn't he such an excellent example for us.

01:40:27--> 01:41:02

And even Armand didn't say this based on no evidence the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught something similar. And he said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no person opens the door of gift giving to mend relationships, except that Allah will open the door of abundance for him, Allahu Akbar, you see, when it comes to giving gifts, we like being generous to our friends, and you know, making good donations etc. But when it comes to relatives, we become a little stingy over there, because relatives, given that they are close to us.

01:41:03--> 01:41:47

And given that they expect a lot from us, they do end up hurting us directly or indirectly, right it happens and the people who have hurt us, and yet we cannot be any cut off from them, it becomes very difficult to be good to them. So still those who justly lose those who join the relationship that Allah subhanaw taala created. Because these relationships end we don't choose ourselves It is Allah who decides. So we don't have the right to cut our relatives off. So when a person is generous towards his relatives, why, in order to mend the relationship, then Allah subhanaw taala will open the door of abundance for the servant meaning Allah will give him a lot of wealth, Allah will

01:41:47--> 01:42:30

increase as well for him. So 200 Allah, this is the month of Ramadan, read this coming up an excellent time to give gifts to our relatives. Now you might say that we are in lockdown. There is also another gift called read gift, their aid money, which Alhamdulillah these days can be easily transferred in different ways. So think about which relatives you're going to spend on to earn this reward. When Latina suburu and those who are patient, why are their patient, seeking the face of their Lord and establish prayer and spend from what We have provided for them secretly and publicly and prevent evil with goods panela weird little owner bill has Santa to say he they avert evil with

01:42:30--> 01:43:10

good, those will have the good consequences of this home. So yes, mistakes happen. You know, sometimes there are fights between relatives, but then apologize, follow it with something good make up for it in one way or another. gardens of perpetual residents, they will enter them with whoever were righteous among their fathers, their spouses and their descendants, and the angels will enter upon them from every gate saying, peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. And excellent is the final home Subhan Allah, Allah will join families together in Geneva also, along with your loving home,

01:43:11--> 01:43:58

and the angels will congratulate them. But those who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it, and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined, they cut, they sever their relationships, and they spread by that corruption, corruption on Earth, for them as the curse and they will have the worst home. Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts it and they rejoice in the worldly life, while the worldly life is not compared to the Hereafter, except brief enjoyment. So worldly life is a brief enjoyment, the life of the Hereafter, that is permanent enjoyment. So aim for that, strive for that, but it is not for free, you have to suffer. Because you see the angel

01:43:58--> 01:44:34

said, when they when the angels enter upon them, they will say, peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. So funny, who will hire to dunya there are some people who just rejoice over worldly life, they're very happy with the things of this life with the accomplishments of this life. And okay 100 Allah, of course, these are blessings of Allah, but that should not be our ultimate goal and concern. And those who disbelieved, say, Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord say, Indeed, Allah leaves astray whom He wills and guides to himself, whoever turns back to him.

01:44:35--> 01:44:59

Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah and levina armano What Alma in nakoda won't be the Killa Allah be the killer he tell to my email kulu unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah, hearts are assured. Remember, that the heart was made for Allah or zoologia the heart is

01:45:00--> 01:45:08

Supposed to be obedient to Allah, that is the function of the heart. In a Hadees, we learned in nearly lay Ania to mean

01:45:09--> 01:46:01

that Allah has certain vessels for among the people of the earth. And what are those vessels were Ania tobecome ko lube, that the vessels of your Lord are the hearts of everybody a slightly hain of his righteous servants. So the heart is made for Allah. It is supposed to be obedient to Allah, it is supposed to surrender to Allah, it is supposed to remember Allah. And when you do when you fulfill the purpose of or the reason behind why something exists, only then can it be healthy. Only then can it be sound. If you don't use it, it's going to deteriorate over time, if you misuse it. Again, it's going to deteriorate over time. So the health of the heart, the soundness of the heart,

01:46:01--> 01:46:20

depends on what on the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala by giving the heart what it needs, this is why this fact has been mentioned over here, that unquestionably it is with the remembrance of Allah, that the hearts are assured meaning not without the the remembrance of Allah.

01:46:21--> 01:47:10

And even if a person momentarily fiends, you know, find some joy and, you know, reassurance and comfort, by being distracted from Allah subhanaw taala that is not real comfort, it is just, you know, soothing yourself temporarily, it is not going to solve the problem. So, the vicar of Allah, that is what truly brings joy and reassurance and comfort to the heart. Now, sometimes a person feels that you know what, I am making liquid, but I still feel very restless. So look at how the eye begins alladhina amanu. Those who believe and their hearts find assurance with the remembrance of Allah say begins with a man. So check the state of your email in an email doesn't just mean that you

01:47:10--> 01:47:54

have belief in your heart. It means that you look at your actions, you look at your words, how strong is your obedience to Him. So when you combine obedience with faith and remembrance, that is when you will truly find comfort and joy. Without it, there can be no comfort, and the vicar of Allah Guinea, this is what makes the heart alive. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm setting the example of the one who celebrates the praises of his Lord in comparison to the one who does not, is like that of a living creature compared to a dead one. So the person who remembers Allah, their heart is alive, those who have believed and unrighteous deeds, you see, again, he man is mentioned.

01:47:55--> 01:48:17

And when a man Arnold solid is mentioned righteous deeds, as mentioned, a good state is there's no good return. Meaning in this life, they're in a good state, regardless of the circumstances, and because of that, they will have a good return. dounia is good, is good. Thus have we sent down to you thus have we sent you to a community before.

01:48:18--> 01:48:59

Thus we have sent you to a community before which other communities have passed on. So you might recite to them that which we reveal to you while their disbelief in the Most Merciful, say, he is my Lord, because he the machine of Makkah, they didn't believe in Allah man, say, he is my Lord, there is no data except him upon whom I rely, and to him is my return. And if there was any Quran, by which the mountains would be removed, or the Earth would be broken apart, or the dead would be made to speak, it would be this Quran because of Moshe kena fucka would keep demanding other miracles right? So it has mentioned that you know, this Quran is the miracle This is it, but to Allah belongs

01:48:59--> 01:49:45

the affair entirely. Thus, then have those who believed not accepted that had Allah who will, he would have guided the people, all of them. And those who disbelieve, do not cease to be struck for what they have done by calamity, or it will descend near their home until there comes the promise of Allah. Indeed, Allah does not fail in his promise, and already were other messengers ridiculed before you and I extended the time of those who disbelieved that I sees them and how terrible was my penalty. So we see there is rest bite, and then Time is up for a man who will call him on earlier Coleen of sin Bhima. cassava, then is He who is a maintainer of every soul, meaning Allah subhanaw

01:49:45--> 01:49:59

taala. He maintains every creature, knowing what it has earned, like any other. No, there's no comparison, but to Allah, they have attributed partners say name them, or do you inform him of that which he knows now?

01:50:00--> 01:50:43

upon the earth, or off what is apparent of speech meaning, you've come up with these so called Gods which are just figments of your imagination, there is no reality. Rather, their own plan has been made attractive to those who disbelieve, and they have been diverted from the way and whomever Allah leaves astray, there will be for him no guide, for them will be punishment in the life of this world. And the punishment of the Hereafter is more severe, and they will not have from Allah any protector. The example of Paradise, which the righteous have been promised, is that beneath it, rivers flow, its fruit is lasting, and it's shade. That is the consequence for the righteous. And

01:50:43--> 01:51:25

the consequence for the disbelievers is the fire. And the believers among those to whom we have given the previous scripture, rejoice at what has been revealed to you. But among the opposing factions are those who deny part of it, say, I have only been commanded to worship Allah and not associate anything with him. To him, I invite and to him as my return. And thus, we have revealed it as an Arabic legislation, the Quran is an Arabic, otherwise, the people of the time around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they would not understand because of the language barrier, and if you should follow their inclinations, after what has come to you of knowledge, meaning when a

01:51:25--> 01:52:03

person has knowledge than they should not follow the desires of people, the whims and the assumptions, the lives of people, if you do that, you will not have against Allah, any ally or any protector. And we have already sent messengers before you and assigned to them wives and descendants, they were human. And it was not for a messenger to come with a sign except by permission of Allah. And for every term is a decree for everything is a fixed time, so trust Allah's plan, Allah eliminates what He wills or confirms. And with him is the mother of the book, meaning lo Halima fold where everything is recorded. And whether we show you part of what we promised them, or

01:52:03--> 01:52:42

take you in depth upon you is only the duty of notification and upon us is the account so you do your job and leave the rest to Allah have they not seen that we set up on the land reducing it from its borders, and this is any physically this could be physically that literally the earth is shrinking in size. Or it could mean that the freedom that people have is reducing by day. And that happened at the time of the Prophet sallallahu an incident where you know, more and more people were embracing Islam so those who oppose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Indeed, they were losing their freedom. And we experienced this today that where we are losing our freedom, and you were not

01:52:42--> 01:53:04

able to go freely out of our own houses. We are confined to our own homes. Nunca Soham in outer raffia Kinney This is a warning. Don't they see this? Don't they learn from this? And Allah decides there is no adjuster of his decision alone. But when Allah decides l'amour actively hooked me, no one can change his decision.

01:53:05--> 01:53:50

And he is swift in account and those before them had plotted but to Allah belongs the plan entirely so people can do whatever they want. It is Allah's decision that prevails. He knows what every soul earns. So focus on that, and the disbelievers will know for whom is the final home and those who have disbelief say less than more Salah you're not a messenger, SEO prophets of Allah who are who said no kafa biLlahi shahidan veiny Robaina come sufficient is Allah as witness between me and you, and the witness of whoever has knowledge of the Scripture? I don't need you to testify. Because Allah's testimony is enough. Surat Ibrahim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, le of lamb rah. This is a

01:53:50--> 01:54:41

Book which We have revealed to you, that you might bring mankind out of darkness into the light. So the Quran enlightens people, it enlightens the minds the lives of people, it is most progressive. It brings people out of darkness, darkness of worry of fear, of confusion, of doubt, of disbelief of ignorance, but how, by permission of their Lord by his Sofia, to the path of the Exalted in Might, the Praiseworthy, who is he? He is Allah, to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and woe to the disbelievers from a severe punishment. Are they a levena is the Hey boodle. Hi, Arthur dunya. Allah here are the ones who prefer the worldly life over the hereafter.

01:54:41--> 01:54:59

You see, yes, the high buena, this is the love worldly life a great deal. So much so that they give a preference over the hereafter. So they would rather have worldly enjoyment and worldly benefits than the reward in the hereafter. And this is why they don't care about how they

01:55:00--> 01:55:44

make their dunya how they earn worldly benefits, even if it's through unlawful and unfair and immoral ways. And by that they put their hereafter at risk. So those who do this, and also avert people from the way of Allah, by their low, cheap ways, for example, seeking to make it seem deviant finding imaginary faults in Islam, those are an extreme error, they're making a huge mistake, they will never be successful. And we did not send any messenger except speaking in the language of his people, to stick clearly for them. And Allah sends a stray there by whom He wills and guide whom He wills and he is the Exalted in Might the wise. And we certainly sent Moosa with our sign saying,

01:55:44--> 01:56:11

bring out your people from darknesses into the light, and remind them of the days of Allah, a yam Allah, this refers to major historical events, remind your people of what happened in the past. Why, because indeed, in that are Signs liquidly so bad in Chicago, for everyone patient and grateful. You see suburb and sugar have been mentioned together. Because basically, there are two sides of the same coin.

01:56:12--> 01:56:48

You see, either a person is an ease or they're in difficulty. So sobor is to remember Allah, to remain obedient to Him in hardship, and sugar is to remember Allah and be obedient to Him in ease. So in every circumstance, subdued, and sugar means that a person remembers a law, and they're focused on fulfilling their duty to Allah. Now, sugar gratitude is something that you know, a lot of a lot of people talk about, but this is something that we don't fully understand. shocker is that a person recognizes the gift of the giver.

01:56:50--> 01:57:39

And they have feelings of love, admiration, humility, and submission. This is gratitude. This is sugar. So the person who does not recognize the blessing is unaware of it cannot offer gratitude. And the person who recognizes the gift but does not recognize the giver of the gift, then even he cannot offer gratitude. And the person who recognizes the blessing and the giver, but rejects the blessing by refusing it, he's also not showing gratitude, and the person who recognizes the blessing, and he recognizes the giver of the blessing, but does not show humility before the giver, nor loves him, nor is pleased with him. He's also not showing gratitude. Gratitude is the person who

01:57:39--> 01:58:33

recognizes the blessing, the giver of the blessing, he acknowledges the blessing is humble before the giver, loves him, is pleased with him, and uses the blessing in a way that the giver would like it. That person is showing gratitude. So ignore him said, to be thankful to Allah implies manifesting the effects of Allah's blessings on you. So this means that the heart witnesses these blessings, the heart acknowledges Allah and the blessing and loves him for it. He loves Allah for it. And he Allah, you gave me this, I love you. The tongue acknowledges these blessings and praises him for it. And then the body submits and obeys him because of it. This is sugar. Because sometimes

01:58:33--> 01:59:17

we say that Yeah, I am grateful. But are we really grateful? This is something that we need to, you know, check in ourselves and recall our children of Israel when Mossad is Salaam said to his people remember the favor of Allah upon you when he saved you from the people of our own, who were afflicting you with the worst torment and were slaughtering your sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord. And remember, when your Lord proclaimed let in Chicago tune let us see the nakum if you are grateful, I will surely increase you. But if you deny indeed my punishment is severe, revere said that if you are grateful meaning for my favors, then let

01:59:17--> 01:59:59

us see the nickel I will give you even more. And this is why it is said that sugar not only preserves blessings, it also brings more for inna Shukla Badal mo dude, it preserves what is present, will slave in my food, it brings what is missing, has an adversary said if you are grateful for Allah favors, then I will give you even more ability to worship me. So let us see the NACA means I will give you more ability to worship me because sugar is a form of ibadah. So when you are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala Allah will allow you to worship him even more and even

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

better ways. So we need to think of ourselves because sometimes we see that it's the month of Ramadan. And really we don't have many responsibilities in the sense that because of lockdown, we were home. Okay, life is different, but it's definitely easier. But still, if a person is not able to do a bother, they're not able to worship Allah than the need to check themselves. Maybe I'm not being grateful. Because sugar draws you close to Allah. Sugar is something that earns you Allah's approval. And only when Allah is pleased with you, will he give you the trophy, to worship Him? This is why I express gratitude, regardless of your situation, regardless, because there are blessings

02:00:42--> 02:00:48

that are visible to us and then there are blessings that are invisible to us, that are not known to us.

02:00:49--> 02:01:33

So this is why in good times, say Alhamdulillah and in difficulty, say Alhamdulillah Allah coolly Han Alhamdulillah in every state as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, even an illness, when a person is sick, or when a person is in difficulty, they should express gratitude to Allah. Why there is a hadith in which we learned that when the slave is ill Allah sends to angels to him. And these angels look at what this person says to his visitors. The words that he says if he praises Allah glorifies him, thanks him. Then they take that up to Allah. And Allah already knows, but Allah says, If I make my slave die, I will make him enter Jannah and if I heal him, I will

02:01:33--> 02:02:18

replace his flesh with better flesh and his blood with better blood and I will efface is evil since SubhanAllah. Any gratitude, even in pain, even in difficulty, because, okay, there are blessings. You know, I haven't paid but there's still so many blessings. And even if I can't see much, I cannot recognize many blessings. There are certainly Baldwin hidden blessings, which I need to be grateful for. And in gratitude is something that leads to Hellfire, the Prophet sallallahu earnings that I mentioned that of the people of genda, Miss alpha sock, and when he was asked to why are they said these are the women who are extremely ungrateful, neither grateful when given something nor patient

02:02:18--> 02:03:04

when tested. So any gratitude begins where in our closest interactions, that for example, how is it that that a person is towards their spouse towards their children? Are we always complaining? Or are we appreciative, any This is a lifestyle. This is a way of thinking, a manner, a disposition, we'll call a Moosa and Musa alayhis salam said, If you should disbelieve you and whoever is on the earth entirely, Indeed, Allah is free of need, and praiseworthy has there not reached you the news of those before you, the people of New and odd and samode and those after them, no one knows them, but Allah, their names even are not known. Their messengers brought them clear proofs, but they returned

02:03:04--> 02:03:43

their hands to their mouth in shock and denial. And they said, Indeed, we disbelieve in that with which you have been sent. And indeed We are about that to which you invite us in disquieting though it's not convincing. Their messenger said, Can there be doubt about Allah, Creator of the heavens and earth, who made all of this, he invites you that he may forgive you of your sins, and he delays your death for a specified time for a specified term. He's giving you a chance. They said, You are not but men like us, who wish to avert us from what our fathers were worshipping. So bring us a clear authority. Look at how they belittle the prophets, their messenger set to them. We are only

02:03:43--> 02:04:26

men like you. Yes, we are human, but Allah confers favor upon whom He wills of his servants. It has never been for us to bring you evidence except by permission of Allah and upon Allah let the believers rely and why should we not rely upon Allah while he has guided us to our good ways, and we will surely be patient against whatever harm you should cause us will on us be Rhonda, Allah ma the tuna. So remember, subud is over the different things that Allah subhanaw taala decrees in our lives. So for example, a person falls ill there's several over that, but somebody is also in the face of how people harm you people try to hurt you. And upon Allah, lead those who would rely,

02:04:26--> 02:05:00

indeed rely and those are this believed set to their messengers, we will surely drive you out of our land, or you must return to our religion. So their Lord Inspire to them, we will surely destroy the wrongdoers and we will surely cause you to dwell in the land after them but this is for who that is for he who fears my position and fear is my threat. So this good promise of living in Jana because well no skin Anna Komal Alba this could be of of the world or it could refer

02:05:00--> 02:05:46

To the home of the Hereafter, and he This is for who the one who fears Allah, the One who fears his position, the one who fears Allah's warning. And remember, the believer does fear Allah. The believer fears disobeying Allah called any harmful in our sight to Robbie either biomin early I fear that if I disobey my Lord, there will be punishment. And for the one who has fear of Allah is Jenna will even hoffa calm or be Janata for the one who fears the position of his Lord will be to gardens, and this fear is what allows a person to control themselves. What a man hoffa McComber a big one 100 of sarin al Hawa the person who fears the position of his Lord and stops the knifes from following

02:05:46--> 02:06:31

the desire for in the agenda to heal Ma, then such a person will have Jenna as his abode. And they requested victory from Allah, and disappointed therefore, was every obstinate tyrant Jabba in irony, you see Jabbar is such an arrogant person who doesn't think he owes anyone anything. And our need is a person who is stubborn and opposing to the truth. So such people will end up in hell before him as hell and he will be given a drink of Peruvian water. And this is the excretions from the wounds and burns of the people of hell, the federal law, he will gulp it, but will hardly be able to swallow it. And death will come to him from everywhere, meaning every part of his body, even the tos, any

02:06:31--> 02:07:19

they will be on fire, you know, in extreme pain, but he is not to die, and before him as a massive punishment. The example of those who disbelieve in their Lord is that their deeds are like ashes, which the wind blows forcefully on a stormy day sopran Allah, no use at all. they're unable to keep from what they earned a single thing. That is what is extreme error. Have you not seen that Allah created the heavens and the earth and truth, if he wills he can do away with you and produce a new creation. And that is not difficult for Allah. And they will come out for judgment before Allah all together. And the week will say to those who are arrogant, indeed we were your followers. So can you

02:07:19--> 02:07:59

avail us anything against the punishment of Allah, they will say, If Allah had guided us, we would have guided you, it is all the same for us. Whether we show intolerance or our patient, there is for us no place of escape. staford Allah, you see, when a person hopes for guidance in this world, and he is patient, then that will benefit a person. But if a person does not hope for guidance, now, then hoping for guidance on the day of gentlemen, is not going to help. And then you see, they will say so on arlena at a zero now I'm sober now. It's the same, it's going to make no difference whether we are patient or we're impatient, our situation is not going to change in this life. If a

02:07:59--> 02:08:02

person is patient, Allah's help comes,

02:08:03--> 02:08:46

we'll call it shaitan. And shaitan will say, when the matter has been concluded, meaning when people have generic agenda, when people of hell are in hell than shaitan will speak, he will give a hope. He will say Indeed, Allah had promised you the promise of truth. And I promised you, but I betrayed you. But I had no authority over you, except that I just invited you and you responded to me, so do not blame me. But blame yourselves. I cannot be called to your aid. So don't ask me for help. Nor can you be called to my aid. So stop crying. Indeed, I deny your association of me with Allah before. Indeed for that, indeed, for the wrong doors is a painful punishment.

02:08:47--> 02:08:50

Henny these words are so

02:08:52--> 02:09:37

stuffit Allah any basically is telling the people in hell to just be quiet, and leave him alone and not say anything to him and not even blame him. Because you see these words of shaitan they will neither add to their knowledge, nor will they bring the people of hell any relief. They will only make the people of hell feel even more angry, more upset, more regretful and more hurt. Yet, what does he say? That I cannot respond to your ad to your crying meaning if you cry to me, I cannot help you. So stop crying. Stop screaming stop blaming me. Stafford allay any if someone harms you, it hurts but then when they come in admitted to your face without any regret, or any pity at that hurts

02:09:37--> 02:09:59

even more. So it's very obvious that shaitan is our enemy, enemy. And he's he will say himself that I only invited you and you responded to me. So remember, shippon can only invite us and he cannot force us to sin. He only suggests and encourages he only makes it attractive and tempting.

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

He does not force people, he cannot force us. So remember, you have the power to refuse, you have the power to say are all the Billa

02:10:11--> 02:10:33

and those who believed and did righteous deeds will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow abiding eternally they're in by permission of their Lord and their greeting there in will be peace Salaam in gentle peaceful words there's so much love so much peace any Allah will. There will be celeb from Allah there will be Salah from the angel Salaam from one another.

02:10:34--> 02:10:41

So beautiful and in hell, there's only blaming and shaming and saying you know what, don't even talk to me Don't even call me

02:10:43--> 02:11:11

what a difference. And I'm Tara Have you not considered how Allah presents an example making a good word and Kalamata yerba which is the hate La ilaha illa Allah, this is like a good word. This is like a good tree. Meaning a good word is like a good tree whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches are high in the sky, because this tree is tall and the branches all grow at the top.

02:11:12--> 02:11:55

What is this tree it is the date palm tree. So it produces its fruit all the time by permission of its Lord. And Allah presents examples for the people that perhaps they will be reminded. So this is the date palm tree a bunch of date date fruit was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he recited this iron he said it is the date palm tree. So the believers he man is being compared to the date palm tree. Why because the dead palm tree is a day palm tree when it has three things, when its root is firm and strong, when its trunk is straight and tall. And when its branches are all the way at the top. And this is how he man is it has a firm solid foundation in the heart there is

02:11:55--> 02:12:38

the pain affirmation in the heart, in the root. And then the trunk there is acknowledgement at the tongue the tongue is also straight Google colon sadita. So a person acknowledges he man says it expresses it with their tongue. And then there's tall that there's branches at the top, meaning that the believer also performs actions of a man. So a man has three components. There's the sleep in the heart, there is just leak in the heart meaning information in the heart, there is a cloud on the tongue formation on the tongue and then there is an action on the limbs. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the example of the believer is like that of a date palm. Whatever you take from it

02:12:38--> 02:13:21

will benefit you can either believer like the date palm is very useful, very productive, which is why we see that it produces its fruit all the time because faith results in action. Faith includes action, by permission of its Lord meaning by Allah Sophia. So ask Allah for tofi. And the example of a bad word of Sheikh is like a bad tree uprooted from the surface of the earth, not having any stability. Allah keeps firm those who believe with the firm word in worldly life and in the Hereafter. And Allah sends astray the wrongdoers, and Allah does what He wills. So we see that when a person believes in La ilaha illa Allah, they don't commit schicke than Allah subhanaw taala is the

02:13:21--> 02:14:07

Wali of such a person. So Allah subhanaw taala gives this person firmness. When in this life, in worldly life, through their difficulties, Allah Spano Tata, gives them firmness and stability, courage and confidence, and in the hereafter also, which begins with the time of death, and the questioning in the grave. Remember the three questions? Who is your Lord? Who is your prophet? What is your religion? So when a believer is asked these questions, by the angels, the believer is given to us Beats by Allah. So he is able to answer these questions. And so Allah is the one who gives stability. So, when a person is firm in their faith in this life, then Allah subhanaw taala will

02:14:07--> 02:14:48

give them firmness in the grave also. And if the first stage of the hereafter the grave, if that is good, then what follows will also be good. But a lot of mean those who do wrong what happens to them, they go astray in this life, the slightest difficulties, make them weak. Why? Because the root there was not strong, the faith in Allah was not there. And so such a person goes astray in this life and in the grave. Also, when the three questions will be asked we learn in the Hadees. That as for the the cafe, the one who denies and in other versions, we don't ask for the monastic the hypocrite The one who has doubt, anyone he will be questioned these three simple questions Who is

02:14:48--> 02:15:00

your Lord? Who is your prophet? What is your deen? You will say Ha ha, la de he, I don't know. Don't ask me. He will say I heard people saying something. So I also said it. I own

02:15:00--> 02:15:39

He said what I heard people saying, meaning there was no real emotion in the heart, there was no real acknowledgement at the tongue and the actions did not match. So then there will be severe punishment in the grave. And if a person fails here, then there will only be failure and ruin later. Have you not considered those who exchange the favor of Allah for disbelief, Allah gave them favor blessing, but they switched it with disbelief, meaning instead of a man, they showed denial, and settled their people in the home of ruin. You see, when Allah gives us blessings, that is an opportunity for growth, but there are people who will not be grateful for that blessing. So they end

02:15:39--> 02:16:21

up in more ruin. It is hell, which they will enter to burn and wretched is the settlement and they have attribute it to Allah equals to mislead people from his way, say in Enjoy yourselves for indeed your destination is the fire. All Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell my servants who have believed to establish prayer and spend from what We have provided them with a man there must be action, spend how secretly and publicly why for your own benefit, before a day comes in which there will be no exchange nor any friendships. It is Allah who created the heavens in the earth and sent down rain from the sky and produce thereby some fruits as provisioned for you and subjected for you

02:16:21--> 02:17:01

the ships to sail through the sea by his command and subjected for you the rivers and he subjected for you the sun in the moon continuously in orbit and subjected for you the night and the day. And he gave you from all you asked of him, were in terror do near Matala, he led to sue her. And if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them because you can only count what you know what you can see what is finite and the blessings of Allah are beyond your knowledge, so many blessings that you don't even see. So how could you even count them? There are so many that you don't have the capacity to count them. Indeed, mankind is generally most unjust and ungrateful.

02:17:02--> 02:17:33

Allahu Akbar, and mentioned when Ibrahim said My Lord, make the city secure and keep me and my children away from worshipping idols, look at his concern, my Lord, indeed they have led astray mean these idols have led astray many among the people so whoever follows me then he is off me and whoever this and whoever disobeys me indeed you are yet Forgiving and Merciful. Allah club, he's so kind. He's praying for the guidance of their of his children of his progeny, and also for their forgiveness.

02:17:34--> 02:18:13

And the Prophet sallallahu earlier son was also sent as a mercy to the world's so don't pray against people pray for their forgiveness and guidance. He said Our Lord, I have settled some of my descendants in an uncultivated Valley near your sacred house, our Lord, that they may establish prayer. So make hearts among the people inclined toward them, and provide for them from their fruits that they might be grateful. So remember, Ibrahim already said I'm left is Mary and his mother huddled in Makkah, and he was abandoned, it was empty. There was nothing over there. No people, no plants, nothing. So he made the call. He said, Oh Allah, you provide them their physical sustenance,

02:18:13--> 02:18:53

fruits, their emotional sustenance, love, their spiritual sustenance, the ability to worship and these are the hours that we should be making for our children as well. Our Lord, indeed you know, what we conceal and what we declare, and nothing is hidden from Allah on the earth, or in the heaven. Alhamdulillah Praise to Allah who has granted to me in old age is smart, and his heart. Indeed, my lord is the hearer of supplication Ibrahim our listener was very old when his children were born, and he praises and glorifies Allah for that. But unfortunately, many people if that was the case with them, they will probably complain that now at this time, or BGR lemo famous Salah to

02:18:53--> 02:19:43

them in the re Yeti. He said My Lord make me an establisher of prayer. And many for my descendants are burn out the Cabal Dora our Lord and accept my supplication Robin ofili our Lord forgive me while he while he they? Yeah, well meaning me and my parents and my brother and the believers when yo my appointment hisab. The day the account is established. So Ibrahima, his center had so much higher than him, look at all the dials that he's making, first, his sacrifices and then his draws, he made golf for you. He said Robin are fairly well evaluated in what meaning he made the offer all the believers, Allahu Akbar, and never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He

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

only delays them for a day when eyes will stare in horror racing ahead. Their heads raised up their glands does not come back to them because they will be unable to blink their eyes out of the terror that they will witness and their hearts will be void

02:20:00--> 02:20:40

warn the people of a day when the punishment will come to them. And those who did wrong will say Our Lord delay us for a short term, we will answer your call and follow the messengers. But it will be said, had you not sworn before that for you there would be no cessation Didn't you think that your life would forever be good, and you'll live among the dwellings of those who wronged themselves and it had become clear to you how we dealt with them. Yet you persisted in your denial and in your in gratitude, and we presented for you many examples, but you took no heed, and they had planned their plan. But with Allah is recorded their plan, Allah has full control over their plan, even if their

02:20:40--> 02:21:24

plan had been sufficient to do away with the mountains for Lata SubhanAllah. Mostly for where the hero Sula, so never think that Allah will fail in his promise to his messengers. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might, and owner of retribution, it will be on the day, the earth will be replaced by another Earth completely transformed, and the heavens as well. And all creatures will come out before Allah, Allah hid him or her, the one the prevailing, so no one will be able to hide their hide themselves from Allah. And you will see the criminals that they bound together in shackles, all those arrogant people now, coming before Allah bound in shackles, their garments of liquid pitch,

02:21:24--> 02:22:12

which is highly flammable, and their faces covered by the fire stuff in a law This is how they will be punished. Why, so that Allah will recompense every soul for what it earned? Can you what people are doing here? There's got to be a sequel a next chapter. Indeed, Allah is swift in account how the Allahu linas this Quran is notification for the people. This message is for all people called honest for all, every single human being deserves to know what the Quran says, while in the Ruby, so that they may be warned thereby. And they understand that a very difficult Day is coming up. While you're a little more than that they may know a number who are ILA who had this is the message of the Quran,

02:22:12--> 02:22:58

that he is but one god this is a fact that every single person must come to know of when he or that girl album and that those of understanding will be reminded they will take lesson they will wake up this is the purpose of the Quran. So it is very important that we learn the Quran ourselves. And we also encourage our families, our friends to learn the message of the Quran, because every single person deserves to know every single person needs to know. So acquire take this hair for yourself and also share it with others. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all tofi inshallah, we'll conclude here so panicle lahoma will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta esto fuuka la assalamu aleikum

02:22:58--> 02:23:00

wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

02:23:11--> 02:23:23

relay money shavon Urdu Miss Miller off money Rahim. Al comm their love we've completed another beautiful gestures aka Hydra dysrhythmia Java, we'll see you tomorrow. Okay, so we'll have a quick

02:23:24--> 02:23:29

recap on one point in shuttler. I'm going to enable text.

02:23:32--> 02:23:34

So let's have

02:23:36--> 02:23:48

our recap session and shuttler nanocellulose really Kareem and my bad if I was to blame ni[???]ani rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim rubbish roughly Sunday assembly Emily water Dr. De melissani of Ali.

02:24:10--> 02:24:10

Okay,

02:24:11--> 02:24:24

so Mashallah, we have reached just 13. So let's take a lesson in shot love from this juice, and we're going to take it from so Ibrahim and number seven.

02:24:27--> 02:24:32

Okay, and what is this idea and remember when your Lord pre proclaimed

02:24:35--> 02:24:41

if you are grateful, I will surely increase you in favor but if you deny indeed my punishment is severe.

02:24:44--> 02:24:49

So what are we being told that if we are grateful, then what was the last panel ADO?

02:24:51--> 02:24:58

He will Yes, increase us. Right. But if we deny, then what is the outcome

02:25:03--> 02:25:22

Yes. Punishment, punishment. Yes. So let's see. So the gratitude for a blessing increases the blessing, right? So the more we thank Allah subhanaw taala, for what he has given us, the more or less panthella will increase us in that blessing.

02:25:23--> 02:25:26

It's a what is it that we want more of?

02:25:28--> 02:25:39

Everything? Right? Is there anything that we don't need more of? Subhan Allah. So what is gratitude? Number one, gratitude is acknowledging a blessing.

02:25:40--> 02:25:50

Right? So first, we have to recognize that it's a blessing. There are blessings all around us. And we don't even notice them. We take them for granted.

02:25:52--> 02:25:57

Right? So for example, your phone charger, or your laptop charger?

02:25:59--> 02:26:01

How many times have we thanked Allah for that?

02:26:02--> 02:26:06

What happens when our battery starts to go below? 50%?

02:26:08--> 02:26:11

How much we start to worry.

02:26:13--> 02:26:16

We don't you know, wrestle threats under law.

02:26:19--> 02:26:31

Right? So yes, we start to panic, Subhan Allah. Right, so then next time, when we plug in our devices to charge, then we need to what do we need to praise Allah Subhana Allah for it, thank him.

02:26:32--> 02:26:48

Okay, and then be happy about it. Sometimes we look at the things we have, and we think, you know, this is so old looking, or I want the latest model that Alhamdulillah that we have this Yeah, the electricity to Subhan Allah very true.

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

Yes, sugar is a type of your body as well. And then sharing it with others, maybe somebody needs some help, right, and we can offer it to them through our device.

02:27:04--> 02:27:10

And so, sharing with others also Subhan Allah is a way of showing our gratitude

02:27:13--> 02:27:21

and then spending it in Allah zwei. So Alhamdulillah the fact that we are in class today, that itself is spending our devices in the way of Allah,

02:27:25--> 02:27:26

Allah, that we are,

02:27:28--> 02:27:44

we've been given an opportunity to use it for good and that we are using it this way. Alhamdulillah. So look at everything we own and see, how is it that I can praise Allah for it? How can I be happy about it? How can I share it with others? And how can I spend it in Allah zwei

02:27:45--> 02:27:57

so for everything we have, inshallah, this is the recipe for gratitude. And so Alas, Panda told us in the ayah in gratitude is severe punishment. So what is in gratitude?

02:27:59--> 02:28:05

It's not acknowledging a blessing, right? We've been given a blessing, but we don't acknowledge it.

02:28:06--> 02:28:09

We act like it's not even there.

02:28:10--> 02:28:21

So how many of us had some water this morning at supper time? And how many of us truly said 100? Allah? from the bottom of our heart?

02:28:25--> 02:28:33

Right, yes, we complaints upon Allah. Yeah, we did be little things. Even in good times, yes. When you say Alhamdulillah

02:28:35--> 02:28:35

in order to

02:28:37--> 02:29:01

preserve the blessing, right? So then if we are not grateful, we can't recognize the blessing that we have. Right? And then there's no way we're going to praise Allah Mandela for it. We're not going to thank him for it. In our heart, we're going to not be content with what we have. So we're going to be restless in our hearts. And we're going to be looking at what other people have all the time.

02:29:03--> 02:29:17

Right, constantly be looking at what we don't have, whether it's online, or it's in a magazine, or it's in someone else's hand, constantly looking at what others have and what we don't have, what other

02:29:19--> 02:29:28

items are out there and that they are not in my hand. Yes, definitely going to be grumpy. And yes, this leads to jealousy. Exactly.

02:29:29--> 02:29:47

Yeah, we need to recognize his hidden blessings. Exactly. Subhan Allah, so it ties into yesterday's lesson, right. So why is it Cofer, why is in gratitude, Cofer because we're not accepting that Allah gave us something we're denying that Allah gave it to us.

02:29:48--> 02:30:00

Right. So, if somebody is giving you something, right, look at it from a point of view that inshallah we can understand more quickly, that someone keeps giving you

02:30:00--> 02:30:06

something and you're just you just keep taking it. You keep taking it, you never thank them.

02:30:07--> 02:30:13

And when someone asks you about it, you completely ignore it. You don't give that person any credit.

02:30:14--> 02:30:21

You completely deny that they've given it to you. It's like it doesn't exist, yet you benefit from it.

02:30:23--> 02:30:44

And you keep using it, but you don't acknowledge it exist. And you never thank the person for it. Right. So this is Cofer. Yes, exactly. It's like arrogance, and you're not even appreciating it. You should accept that Allah give you ice cream and give your mom credit. Yes. Good.

02:30:46--> 02:31:03

Yeah, blessings are so easily coming and we forget about the giver. Right? So even if it is someone else that's given you something in your life Alhamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah has put that person in your life, right? So everything always goes back to Allah. subhanaw taala.

02:31:06--> 02:31:08

Right. Yes.

02:31:09--> 02:31:11

They do that a lot of vanilla.

02:31:12--> 02:31:27

Right? Yeah, suffering. Sugar is a way of remembering a less panda. So do we want more blessings? Yes, definitely. We all need an increase in all of this good Allah. Allah has blessed us with. So what are we going to do? We're going to be grateful.

02:31:28--> 02:31:33

Right? So no matter what it is, big or small.

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

Thank Allah and Allah for it. Right? Every drop of water is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala.

02:31:44--> 02:31:50

That we have to feel it in our heart. And there's nothing wrong with making the offer things in this world.

02:31:51--> 02:32:01

Right, we see something we want we ask Allah Subhana Allah for it. Allah sponza use it to us. We continue to thank him.

02:32:04--> 02:32:14

Yeah, exactly the air we breathe Subhanallah Imagine if oxygen was only pumped out in Subhanallah increments. It's all around us. Subhan Allah.

02:32:18--> 02:32:27

So we are dependent on Allah. So what should we do? We should be obedient and grateful, in what will allow us to do,

02:32:28--> 02:32:41

he will give us more. Right? So it's only a win win situation, when we are obedient to Allah subhanaw taala when we're doing what we're supposed to be doing, that itself gives us contentment in our hearts, right?

02:32:42--> 02:33:10

When we know we should be praying, and we're not praying or when we know we should be giving hours again, we're not doing and we know, we should be good to people and we're rude to people. Right? All of this just makes us restless and upset all the time. So when we are obedient, we actually bring peace to ourselves. Right and when we are grateful, Allah Subhana Allah gives us more. Yes, true health is something we take for granted as well.

02:33:11--> 02:33:22

That Yes, exactly. The ventilators these days so when Allah May Allah Subhana, Allah protect everyone, those who are ill, may Allah grant them and complete Shiva. I mean,

02:33:25--> 02:34:02

yes, so there's another benefit of being grateful, which is that we stop the shrinking of our brain, right? Because when we are ungrateful, we become stressful, right through the stress from negativity shrinks your brain. In 1996 Stanford study suggests it's time to stop complaining or even being complained to listen to this complaining ourselves or even being complained to by other people for 30 minutes or more can physically damage the brain. According to the study.

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

researchers used MRI scans and found links between long term stressful like life experiences, long, long term exposure to hormones produced during stress and shrinking of the hippocampus. Okay, this is a part of the brain. The study's authors wrote in what is the hiccup hippocampus is a region of the brain involved in the formation of new memories, and also associated with learning and emotions.

02:34:35--> 02:34:53

Okay, so what are we learning here? SubhanAllah. If we complain ourselves, or we listen to someone else complain for 30 minutes or more, we physically damaged the brain because of the stress hormones that are produced. And this shrinks our hippocampus.

02:34:54--> 02:35:00

Right, and what is the hippocampus is the part of the brain that's in

02:35:00--> 02:35:15

involved in formation of new memories. Do you do we do things and forget, like, for example, where did I put my keys when I walked into the house? Or where did I put that book that I really need right now to study from?

02:35:16--> 02:35:29

Or when was the last time Subhanallah I had my appointment with my doctor, we forget small things all the time, right? And perhaps it's because our hippocampus is shrinking and we can't make new memories.

02:35:31--> 02:35:39

Right? And it's also associated with learning and emotions. Right? So we see that people who complain a lot

02:35:40--> 02:35:42

are also desensitized.

02:35:44--> 02:35:57

Right, they don't have Subhan Allah, they don't have empathy towards other people. Because they're so self absorbed. So panela and perhaps your hippocampus has shrunk as well.

02:35:58--> 02:36:11

Right? And sometimes we say I memorized this idea and I can't remember it or I used to remember this recipe and I can't remember it anymore. So panela again learning is also affected by this

02:36:12--> 02:36:17

Yes, of course it can be reversed. inshallah the recipe for that's coming up.

02:36:19--> 02:36:20

Yes upon Allah insha Allah

02:36:23--> 02:36:27

being thankful is a win win situation gratitude increase our memory indirectly. Yes.

02:36:32--> 02:36:50

Yes, you can mistake but on on your phone. No problem. Yes, negative thoughts result in negative talk this damages physically and spiritually. And so the study found that the worst part is the average person complains between 15 to 30 times a day, so on

02:36:51--> 02:37:00

average person, and then those who are Subhanallah used to complaining continuously. A lot while I'm how big their numbers.

02:37:01--> 02:37:06

Life, so 15 to 30 times a day. SubhanAllah. So what should we do?

02:37:07--> 02:37:09

Who are we going to benefit if we stop complaining?

02:37:11--> 02:37:13

Yes, we need to overcome negativity.

02:37:15--> 02:37:26

Yes, we're going to benefit ourselves first. And then what if other people are complaining? Yeah, awesome. People who have to hear us exactly. What if someone else is complaining?

02:37:29--> 02:37:38

What are we going to do in that case? Because even listening to 30 minutes of complaining is going to SubhanAllah. shrink our brains. Yes, dry, divert them.

02:37:41--> 02:37:41

Yes.

02:37:43--> 02:37:45

comfort them and change the subject.

02:37:46--> 02:37:52

So help them listen to them for a few minutes. And then inshallah bring their

02:37:54--> 02:37:56

thoughts to something more positive.

02:37:59--> 02:38:02

At work, it happens a lot. So Hon, Allah May Allah Subhana Allah protect.

02:38:03--> 02:38:08

So one way we can do this in sha Allah is to start a gratitude journal.

02:38:09--> 02:38:12

Write write three things daily that we are grateful for.

02:38:14--> 02:38:15

Okay.

02:38:17--> 02:38:23

Write three things daily that we are grateful for. And they have to be three new things every day.

02:38:25--> 02:38:54

Right? So by the end of the day, when we're tired, and we just feel like you know what, that's it, I can't do anymore. No, sit down at that time. And just write three things you're grateful for. It can be on a note on your phone, it can be in a notebook. A lot of times we have notebooks really nice one sitting around that we haven't touched, right? Because these days, people write less and less upon Allah. Right? So start from just pick one of those up? Or just do it on any device? It doesn't matter.

02:38:56--> 02:39:14

Yes, very true. It shows the link between doing so far and having a good memory, right? How can we remember our mistakes upon Allah? If we can't even smile? How can we seek forgiveness? We can't even remember them. Right? And so make sure there are three new things every day. Yes, it will be countless.

02:39:16--> 02:39:32

And then, after you write those, imagine what life would be like without these three blessings. No, just keep adding, don't erase. Just keep adding. So that inshallah when you go back and you look at them, then you can be even more grateful.

02:39:33--> 02:39:39

Right? So whatever it is that I'm grateful for. Imagine my life would be like if I didn't have them.

02:39:42--> 02:39:47

Right? So even just right now i'm sure things are coming to mind like Subhanallah How could I live without that?

02:39:50--> 02:39:54

And then don't just count your blessings, but share them.

02:39:55--> 02:39:59

Right. So every day think of a way how can I share the blessings

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

I've been given

02:40:02--> 02:40:32

because when we share Subhan Allah Allah subhanaw taala increases us and when we are grateful the last mother's already increasing this right so it's just a win win win situation inshallah. So my last pantalla enable all of us to be grateful. Maybe take away all of the negativity in our lives and inshallah have a very good fast we'll conclude here and we'll see you all tomorrow. Okay, so Hannah, come on, we'll be hunting I shouldn't lie and as tough you're going to be like Islam Allah camara de la Heba barakato
