said Mr. equal or not ally you America too. How's everyone doing today? Is everyone ready for another session of Ramadan and hamdulillah so inshallah we are going to continue and talk about something very very important to do with Ramadan today at hamdulillah. So let's begin. Now module one also Leonardo Zhu Li Karim and mbarara they're all will be laying in a shape on a regime Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, rubbish ratney soldering where your city Omri water Aqua de melissani early alarm of opinion after Dean alarm and binary matter it Lem dinner or I Lim Namah yo Wagner Was it an hour I mean your life enable us to benefit from the session and will enable us to do whatever

00:01:53--> 00:02:37

we are required to do in order to please and mean so inshallah another name of this month is Chateau sada, the month of charity, the month in which we are supposed to be more generous than other months, in a month when we can inshallah earn Allah Subhana. Allah does love and we can also get his pleasure by being more charitable. So charity is an amazing good deed anyways, but especially it has a beautiful link with Ramadan. So let's just talk about what is the link and why is charity very important in Ramadan. We learned from the character of Rasool Allah sallallahu wasallam that how he was in Ramadan, so May Allah enable us to learn from him and act like Him and follow Him close the

00:02:37--> 00:03:28

army. Ramadan is the month month of mercy, and it's a month of arms giving investor generosity of Prophet sallallahu wasallam new low bound Abdullah bin abass rhodiola one he narrated, that was a little loss at ally asylum. He was larger than us, he was the most generous of the people. But he used to be more so in the month of Ramadan, when Angel gibreel he would visit him and gibreel used to meet him every night of Ramadan till the end of the month, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam used to reset the Holy Quran to realize around and when gibreel met him, he used to be more generous than a fast wind. So panela a very beautiful example is given a fast wind, the fast when reaches

00:03:28--> 00:04:16

everywhere, the fast wind doesn't leave anything, you know, left on its own or alone. So it touches everything. So from this, we learn that we should try to reach everyone, we should try to reach every cause. You should try to do as maturity as possible, but in different types of categories for different causes. Like let's say you want to do you want to be charitable this month, then how about you feed some people but at the same time you help the masjid. At the same time you help some orphans at the same time you help with some data projects, such as many different things. And this is how we can implement this in our life, the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And we

00:04:16--> 00:04:49

also learn that it's evident from this narration that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used to give more charity compared to other months in Ramadan. And he used to go even more surely to the poor and needy and his generosity touched and benefited everyone just like the wind that which is everywhere. Similarly, we should also try to spend more in Ramadan and remember that giving charity does not decrease. And there is another narration in you know internet, authentic Hadees that

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

sadaqa doesn't decrease wealth. So inshallah we should never have this fear that because I'm going to give charity I'm going to become poor. You will never find a person telling you

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

That in his or her life, that because I used to give the card or because I used to give Salah for now I'm poor, it never happened to have. And when we give charity, our reward is increased and Allah subhanaw taala returns it to us, many volts of Han Allah. So which is a totally something to, you know, look forward to. And apart from spending on family members, relatives and the poor, we should also engage in welfare activities. And we should benefit the community, you should also construct and renovate masajid and rest areas for travelers, we should also get involved in digging wells, and build and improve waterworks to provide clean drinking water for the people who don't have access to

00:05:43--> 00:06:23

clean water. Also, we should spend on propagation and learning of religious knowledge and meeting the expenses of the students who have set out on this path. And because this is one of the best acts of seeking knowledge, but also helping someone seek knowledge is something even, you know, amazing because it becomes a certified area activity. So learning knowledge is also certified area because if you're learning and teaching, but also if you're helping someone learn, that is also so the highest area. So this is because spending the cause of Allah, while seeking only his pleasure is considered by Allah to be alone upon him subhana wa. So anything which is a cause of a love and be

00:06:23--> 00:07:10

spent in it, it is like we are giving a loan to Allah. And he takes the responsibility of returning it because who would be more fair and just than him so handle not so what a glad What a beautiful good news, we're glad tiring for all the Muslims, Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Al Baqarah animatronics are 245 man, the lady your pergola her bandhasana, for you The IFA, hula hoop, I often get it wrong, who is it that will loan Allah a goodly loan, so he may multiply it for him many times over. So not only just we should spend on, you know, all of these, but we should also help someone open their fast because that is something which is exclusive to Ramadan, and also exclusive to

00:07:10--> 00:07:52

fasting. So we cannot do it. Otherwise, if someone's not fasting, so it is something which is, you know, some good deed or some charitable cause, which is available to us in Ramadan. And when someone is fasting, so what should we do, there is a Hades, which we have covered before as well, but it's a very beautiful one, to bring it back. So whoever provides the food, for a fasting person to break his fast with them, for him is the same reward as his, as the one was fasting, without anything being diminished from the reward of the fasting person to find Allah, this is something we can do. And to highlight some of the countries, it's not even very expensive to try to find if you're not

00:07:52--> 00:08:34

able to afford someone in the country you're living in. And you know, in terms of paying for their if their everyday, maybe you can find some other country where you can feed more people for the same amount, maybe, you know, you know, if you spend like $10 per meal for us, there may be people we can be like five people in $10, you know, for one fast, so inshallah, why not try to find some good ways, and it's how to reach out to the people and help them break their fast, because so many people, they can't even afford to eat just one date, and you know, one glass of milk, so until we can maybe help them with that at least. And if we can help someone financially, we also get the

00:08:34--> 00:09:21

reward for that good deed. It's not exclusive to, you know, a charity or a charity only or feeding anyone it's in anything such as it comes in a heartbeat. Whoever helps in breaking the fast of another person or helps in the preparation of another person who is leaving to fight in the way of Allah will get a reward equal to that of the person who is helped. So any good deed a person is doing, if you're going to help them, like let's say someone wants to start a project or you know, sponsor an orphan and you're just helping them spreading the news or in you know, letting people know about it, you're gonna get a reward for that. Also, if you're just helping them with the cause

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

of the project, then inshallah you're going to get the reward for the whole project. Anyway, so number this is something which is amazing and it motivates us to do more and inshallah help the other people are already doing good, because you know, sometimes it's not very easy for us to initiate something, but if someone's already doing good, then we can inshallah be part of that project, and just help them sometimes financially, sometimes with your, you know, word of mouth, whatever you can do in job. So some things to do are checklists for month of charity. First of all, try to be more generous than other months. Open your heart door.

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

Don't feel clinging to the world. Don't feel like don't feel like you know don't become I would in other words miserly. So don't be miserly. Open your heart spend as much as you can, in the way of a larger Ramadan. So spend of course on your family first to spend on your spouse or your children, your parents and other relatives in the way it is allowed. So don't do a Seraph but you know spend on them, make sure their needs are fulfilled. And then you can arrange for other people as well. And arrange Of course, it's our meals for people including poor needy, and also your relatives even if they're not needy. So arrange our meals for as many as you can. They don't have to mean needy, but

00:10:44--> 00:11:25

of course, we have to start off with someone who deserves more or he is in need more help all needy people of your community. So, if you know some people who are needy in your community, then reach out to them earn the reward of continuous charity by spending on students were seeking religious education. So inshallah someone who is already learning or memorizing put on then we can inshallah help them and on hover Yes, we have a link so you can inshallah contribute and you can just add how you want to sponsor students. So sister ENISA has posted a link so you can inshallah sponsor students and also sponsor zoom rooms and spa sponsor course portal sponsor anything which is helping

00:11:25--> 00:12:09

and you know, get this knowledge across hamdulillah and also spend on the learning and propagation of religious knowledge is not only just a teaching learning also help with publications also help with the content for students to learn from and contribute to social and welfare projects like construction and renovation of masajid hospitals and other community works. It is important for us to pay ourselves if you haven't given us a tougher this year. Start off with that because that is the first charity that is the first type of financial charity you should be giving inshallah if you don't have anything to give, just smile and say a good word to others as acts of charity. You know

00:12:09--> 00:12:49

are also not just financial charities but also you can do a lot of other for your car Are you certified your good manners are you certified your smile and saying something good is also as other few tips and Chava make a list of people you want to help this Ramadan and inshallah keep this list handy for every Ramadan you just know you don't need to make a new list every time you can build on it every time though. So inshallah that is something we can do. Also, gift giving is also sort of ha so inshallah if you're planning to give gifts if you're not trying to give gifts then please plan to give gifts if you're already planning to give gifts then inshallah make a list of your relatives

00:12:50--> 00:13:32

whoever you're going to give gifts inshallah this Ramadan and also this is so even for a wherever you want to give you can give in Ramadan and inshallah you can make the most of this month Alhamdulillah so yesterday Mr. Pena mentioned to the US and Allah you already know them so I'm just going to give them to you quickly, so that you know, you know what to add to your list. So one is the DA which is to be said in the childhood, right and what do we know about it? We know that Abubakar Abubakar rhodiola one the friend reference will last a lot longer than he asked him yeah Rasul Allah, O Messenger of Allah or Lim ne Teach me there are an era the OBE sarathi through which

00:13:32--> 00:14:25

What Luma or here la camino kitabi wa akima Sala. In na sala totternhoe en el fasher you will Mancha what are the CRO Allah He

00:17:23--> 00:18:06

will la who your alemu Matheson our own, recite or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what has been revealed to you of the book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing. And the remembrance of Allah is greater and Allah knows that which you do. We see over here that Allah subhanaw taala is instructing His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to do three things, first of all, to recite the Quran, secondly, to establish the prayer and then the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala is mentioned.

00:18:07--> 00:18:54

And if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being given this command, then this means that this is even more important for us, because it will soon Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a perfect example for us. So the first thing that has been mentioned here is autonoma. Who here la camino keytab recite what has been revealed to you of the book, meaning in order to truly benefit from the Quran, a person must keep reciting the Quran. And to our doesn't just mean recitation, it also means to follow because that one is to do the thought war, meaning to follow and reciting the Quran frequently. Remember, it increases a person in their insight in their understanding, and it

00:18:54--> 00:19:42

opens the treasures of knowledge upon them. So the more a person recites the Quran, the more they benefit from the Quran, the more strongly they're able to follow the Quran. And as a person continues to recite the Quran, they learn what they previously did not know. So the recitation of the Quran opens up the treasures of the Quran gradually upon a person. And remember that the Quran doesn't just give us information. The Quran is supposed to be for action for guidance, and for that we need to keep we need to keep reciting the Quran, we need its constant reminders and the motivation that it provides. So it is not enough to recite the Quran only once. So otterloo recite,

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

and this means recite for your own personal benefit, and also recite to others. So this shows us that the Quran is not just to be read by the eyes that we open up the most often just look at the text and follow with our finger. No It should be recited with the mouth meaning the words should become

00:20:00--> 00:20:45

coming out of your mouth, it should be audible. And then we see that the recitation of the Quran is actually one of the rights of the Quran. Shaquille even Salah said that someone passed by Abdullah de la Mourinho with the most half that was adorned with gold. So he said, Indeed, the most beautiful way in which the most half is adorned, is by its rightful recitation. So don't just focus on you know, a beautiful must have having a wonderful golden copy of the Quran. No, the best way that you can beautify the Quran is by reciting it. And when we recite it, our fear of Allah subhanaw taala should be should be there, it should be visible. I shall do a lot more on her narrative that the

00:20:45--> 00:21:29

best of the people with respect to the recitation is the one who when he recites you can see that he fears Allah. And when you recite, recite calmly, don't rush the recitation because sometimes especially in the month of Ramadan, what happens is that we're so focused on completing our, you know, our Joseph or whatever portion that we have decided for ourselves that we don't really pay much attention to what we are reciting, and we're just focused on completing the recitation. So are a lot of the loved one who said that do not recite the Quran quickly, as if it were poetry, and do not toss it aside as cheap dates are tossed aside, but rather pause at its wonders and move hearts

00:21:29--> 00:21:40

with it, meaning recite with, you know, with attention with beauty, and we also learn that this recitation of the Quran should be with willingness, meaning don't recite the Quran,

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

as if you have been punished.

00:21:45--> 00:22:30

Meaning do not recite the Quran as if you have been punished, recite the Quran happily enjoy that recitation. In a Hadees. We learned that recite the Quran as long as your hearts agree to do so. And when they don't, then get up meaning and leave the recitation for for the time being and return to it again. The second thing that has been mentioned over here up the Miss Salah performed the prayer, meaning properly performed the prayer. Don't just do the Salah, but perform the Salah, meaning with attention with who sure with submissiveness, with stillness, because it is such a prayer which actually benefits a person and of the benefits of solar is that it inhibits a person from indecency

00:22:30--> 00:23:13

and wrongdoing. So we see that solar should have an impact on a person's life. And it is not just something that involves the body, meaning it is not just mere movements and words. It is actually something that impacts a person's life, how that it should stop a person from committing sin. We learn in a hadith that once a man complained to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam that so and so prays in the night, and then in the morning, he goes and steals meaning he commits the sins during the day. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in the Huseyin who may have cool, meaning his prayer will prohibit him, it will stop him from committing sin. And then we see

00:23:13--> 00:23:57

that when a person performs Salah, then definitely their burden of sin is lightened, we learn in the headaches that when a person stands to pray, then his sins are placed upon his shoulders. And every time that the person goes into such the, into the core, meaning they bow down, they prostrate their sins fall off of them. And remember that when a person is forgiven for the sins that they have committed, then they're able to stay away from those sins also. So the thing is that when you press on any it compels you, it forces you to look into yourself. Because generally what happens is that we're so distracted, because of the things that we're doing and the people that we're living with,

00:23:57--> 00:24:40

that the people that we're working with also, that you don't get to spend any time with yourself. You don't get that moment of silence, but in prayer, because you're not able to do anything else and you're not allowed to talk to people either. It allows you to connect with yourself, to look into yourself to realize your weaknesses and your mistakes. So, okay, Miss Lola established the prayer because it will help you become a better person. And then finally, we'll have Victrola he talks about the remembrance of Allah is the Greatest meaning it is extremely beneficial to a person. So whatever that a person is doing, whether it is the recitation of the Quran, or they're performing

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

Salah, or any good deed, what should they do? They should remember Allah subhanaw taala more and more in it. In a Hadees we learned that there is nothing that brings more salvation from the punishment of Allah than the remembrance of Allah, meaning it will definitely rescue and save a person from punishment will have

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

Kuru Allah Akbar.

00:25:02--> 00:25:43

And do not argue with the People of the Scripture except in a way that is best, except for those who commit injustice among them. Meaning do not argue with the people of the book, unless and until you must have a discussion that is best meaning in which there are questions, and then there's answers there is back and forth. But the manner should always be excellent, except for those who commit injustice among them. Meaning, don't even argue with such people. And don't entertain discussions with them. Because they're not seeking guidance with their injustice with their harshness with their rudeness and their mockery. They're only trying to bring you down. They're not trying to listen. So

00:25:43--> 00:26:30

there's no point in arguing with such people and say, we believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you and our God and your God is one, focus on the similarities focus on the common grounds and build some trust. This is how interfaith is supposed to be, and we are Muslims in submission to him, meaning to Allah, and thus we have sent down to you the Quran, and those to whom we previously gave the Scripture, believe in it. And among these meaning Arabs are those who believe in it, and none reject our verses except the disbelievers. And you Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not recite before in any scripture, nor did you inscribe one with your right hand,

00:26:30--> 00:27:12

meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was completely unlettered, he did not know how to read or how to write. Otherwise the faults of fires would have caused would have had caused for doubt. So we see that the inability of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wasallam. To read and write was not a fault or deficiency in him, it was actually an asset for him. For us, it is an IT IT IS SOMETHING any deficient in us if we don't know how to read or write. But for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it was an evidence of his truthfulness. Because a person of such background could never ever invent something so eloquent, so beautiful, and so perfect. And this shows us that at

00:27:12--> 00:27:17

times, our deficiencies can truly bring us the best blessings also.

00:27:18--> 00:28:07

Rather, the Quran is distinct versus Bell Hua yet on big net feel soloed in larina autoloader in the colon is distinct verses that are preserved within the chests of those who have been given knowledge, meaning a sign of a person of knowledge is that they have some Quran preserved within their chest, and none reject our verses except the wrongdoers. And this shows us that if we want to be considered amongst the people of knowledge, that we must have some put on preserved within our heart, meaning we should increase in our memorization. We should not settle with what we memorized. You know, when we were little, we should increase in our memorization of the Quran. Because

00:28:07--> 00:28:49

remember, being able to memorize the Book of Allah is actually a blessing. It is a privilege that Allah has given to this oma hasn't robustly said, we're pleased to have the hill on metal Hitler, that this oma has been given the gift of memorization of the book of Allah, meaning the people before the previous nations, they weren't able to memorize their scripture, they were only able to recite it when they opened it when they had it in front of them. So it was only people who knew how to read, who could actually recite and read the Scripture, the average person could not, and they could not even memorize the Scripture. It was only the prophets among them who had memorized the

00:28:49--> 00:29:37

Scripture. So we see that in the Muslim oma Subhan Allah the Quran is not just preserved in writing, it is actually preserved in the chests of the people in the hearts of the people. So we should also strive to be among people who learn the Quran. And such people who are masthead who are proficient in the Quran, they will be with the noble and blessing angels, meaning their status will be very high in the Hereafter, and there will only be honor upon honor. In a Hadees we learned that the person who memorize the Quran will come on the Day of Resurrection. And the Quran will say, yo Robbie Henley or Lord decorate him. So he will be adorned with a crown of nobility, meaning a crown

00:29:37--> 00:30:00

will be placed on his head imagine the honor and then the Quran will say you're a busy Jew or Lord give him even more. So then he will be adorned with the suit of nobility. And then the Quran will say yarrabilba and who Oh Lord be pleased with him. So Allah subhanaw taala will be pleased with him. Imagine if the Quran will be interceding on behalf of the person you

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

See, we learn in a Hadees that even the parents of a helful will be honored on the Day of Judgment. If you've ever attended, attended a graduation ceremony. It is truly a beautiful experience, especially if you're the one who's graduating, and you walk with that robe and that hat on, and that blank piece of paper that is rolled up, you know, you hold it in your hand and you walk and your parents feel so proud of you. But then after the ceremony who returned the robe, you throw the paper away, and then you know, you take a few pictures, you post them on Instagram and Hello, that's it. Right now. Yes, you have a piece of paper that shows that you have a certain degree. But remember

00:30:39--> 00:31:24

the real honor, real crowning is on the Day of Judgment, when the her father will graduate. We learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the person who has memorized the Quran will be made to wear the crown of respect and dignity, and his parents will be made to wear silky robes and they will be more precious than the world and whatever that is in it. So both of them will ask that why have we been given this and they will be told because of your teaching your child the Quran. You see, even if there you know if a person has the best of teachers to to teach them memorization, parents still play a huge role in their child's memorization of the Quran. Ask any

00:31:24--> 00:32:02

mother, any father, how much they have had to pray, and how much they have had to struggle. And it is a very difficult journey. It can be very, very exhausting, any there's so many things in your life that you have to cut off on. You know, there's so many things that you can attend so many places you cannot go because now your focus is to have your child to help your child memorize the Quran. But all of this effort is not going to be in vain. Look at the honor that Allah subhanaw taala will give to people who have memorized the Quran and who have made their children memorize the Quran also. But remember that we should not just be content with the memorization. memorization of

00:32:02--> 00:32:46

the Quran is something huge. But what is even more important. The next step after that is that we learn the meaning also, in your claim said that some of the pious predecessors would say that the Quran was revealed to be acted upon. But the people have taken its recitation as its action. This is why the people of the Quran were considered to be the people who act by the Quran and follow whatever is in it, even if they do not know the Quran by heart. But the person who merely memorizes it, but does not understand it, nor act by it, then he is not of the Koran, even if you recite the letters and that the dream perfectly, just as arrows are straightened perfectly. So our goal should

00:32:46--> 00:33:28

be to take as much of the Quran as possible, memorize as much as possible. But memorization is not the end all be all. It's not the goal after which you stop, no, you memorize. And then you also increase in your understanding in your knowledge so that you're able to reflect upon it, you're able to act upon it so that you can truly be among the Quran. And never ever be, you know, discouraged or, or, you know, give up on yourself that it's too late for me to always remind yourself the Prophet sallallahu earlier said and began receiving the Quran when he was 40 years old. Subhan Allah, so with the tofik of Allah with the help of Allah, you are able to memorize, you know, keep

00:33:28--> 00:34:14

trying, keep putting in that effort, even if it's just one small idea a day, it's okay. Because no matter how much of the Quran you take, you gather for yourself in sha Allah, this will be a source of honor for you. But they say why are not signed, sent down to him from his Lord, say the signs are only with Allah and I am only a clear Warner and is it not sufficient for them that we reveal to you the book which is recited to them indeed in that is a mercy and reminder for people who believe so the people of moko would constantly demand miracles from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and it is made clear over here that the Quran is itself a miracle. He and he called on its words, its

00:34:14--> 00:34:57

contents, its recitation, the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the one who was conveying it. This itself is a miracle. You need a collection of every aspect of the Quran is a miracle, every aspect of it, even its collection, its preservation, its writing, it sounds, you know, the fact that it is memorized by so many people, its meanings, its teachings, you know, its contents. Everything about the Quran is a miracle. Remember that every prophet of Allah, yes, he was given some miracle but that miracle ended when the Prophet left the world, or that miracle was only temporary, witnessed only by the people who were present at the time at that place. But the Quran is

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

an eternal miracle.

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there was no prophet among the prophets, but was given miracles because of which people believed in him. But what I was given was the divine inspiration, which Allah revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will be more than those of any other prophet on the Day of Resurrection. Why? Because his miracle is going to, because his miracle is eternal. And this is why until people come, and they learn from the Quran, the miracle of the Quran is going to convince them to accept the Quran. And so this is why the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said his followers will be the most on the Day of Judgment, say sufficient is Allah between me and you as

00:35:42--> 00:36:26

witness, he knows what isn't the heavens and earth, and they who have believed in falsehood and disbelieved in Allah. It is those who are the losers, and they urge you to hasten the punishment, and if not, for the decree of a specified term, punishment would have reached them, but it will surely come to them suddenly, while they perceive not. They argue, they urge you to hasten the punishment. And indeed, hell will be encompassing of the disbelievers. On the day, the punishment will cover them from above them and from below their feet. And it has said, taste the result of what you use to do. Just imagine any being trapped in the fire. There is no way of escape. He this

00:36:26--> 00:37:20

punishment is very severe. You're a birdie, all my servants alladhina amanu, those who have believed in early West era, indeed, my Earth is spacious, it is vast for a year for a boon. So worship only me, meaning if you are in any place, in any environment, any situation where you're where the haraam or the unlawful seems to be your only option. Never think that this is the only option? No, you can always say no, there is always other opportunities and other places and other options present. Because Allah subhanaw taala has created the world such that it is full of abundance, it is full of opportunities. And our problem is that we fail to recognize and see that abundance. Why? Because

00:37:20--> 00:38:05

we're not aware of it. We don't believe sometimes those opportunities are obvious to us. And sometimes they're not obvious to us. But we have to first believe that there are other options. You know, there are other possibilities. And when you believe that there are other possibilities, then you start looking and you ask Allah subhanaw taala for help. And Allah subhanaw taala also shows you He guides you so never ever, you know, convince yourself that the Haram the unlawful is my only option. And remember Kowloon have sinned that equal to mode, every soul will taste death, then to us will you be returned. So we have to leave this world ultimately. So always remember this and keep

00:38:05--> 00:38:49

that end in mind. That How is it that I want to meet Allah subhanaw taala in a state of obedience, or in a state of disobedience, and those who have believed and done righteous deeds, we will surely assign to them of Paradise elevated chambers beneath which rivers flow wherein they abide eternally excellent is the reward of the righteous workers. So those people who seek better options, lawful options who focus on worshiping Allah subhanaw taala, then Allah subhanaw taala will give them excellent reward for their effort also. But this effort requires patience, those who have been patient, and upon their Lord, they rely and how many a creature carries not its provision, Allah

00:38:49--> 00:39:35

provides for it and for you, and he is the hearing the knowing. So you see, many times when we, you know, just accept the unlawful opportunities before us, you know, we we think that the world is very scarce, or we think that, you know, if we don't benefit from this opportunity, then we're going to miss out. So this is reminding us that look at the world around you look at the different creatures around you. Do they carry the burden of providing themselves? Do they carry their provision upon their backs? No, Allah is the one who provides them and he also provides you. So remember, that worldly provision is something that is written it is decreed, meaning you cannot get more or less

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

than what is written for you. So don't panic. And remind yourself that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who provides everyone, whether someone is very eager for provision or they're not. They're greedy for more or their content with what they have. They need a lot or they need a little they plan a lot or they plan a little. Still, no matter what a person does. Ultimately, provision is in the hands of Allah. So

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

No one should think that because of their strength, they have a lot or because of their weakness, they have been deprived. No, it is Allah subhanaw taala who gives, and this teaches us that we have to strive, we have to strive to, you know acquire risk, but we have to stay within the rules, because breaking the rules is not going to get you any more. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said edge menoufia thought a bit dunia adopt beauty and moderation in seeking worldly things. Meaning don't don't resort to unlawful ways. Because when you can, you can use lawful ways to earn what is decreed for you, then why resort to unlawful ways and this is something that is you know,

00:40:44--> 00:41:34

something that we should remember, not just in terms of money, but also in terms of relationships, you see, love is also part of risk, it is also provision, marriage, you know, having a healthy relationship. This is you know, having a loving relationship with someone, this is also risk. So remember, when you resort to unlawful ways, in order to, you know, be with someone that you love, or in order to marry them, then you are only harming yourself, you are only depriving yourself of that blessing. So when if someone is written for you, any if if your marriage to someone is written for you, it will happen no matter how much people oppose it. So when you have this realization that if

00:41:34--> 00:42:19

this person is written for me, it will happen if they're not written for me, this relationship will never work out. So any, then it allows you to use lawful ways, right? To to get what you want to get what you like. So stay within the rules that Allah subhanaw taala has legislated, don't break them. Because breaking those rules is only going to bring you harm and suffering not just in this life, but also in the afterlife. Because every limit and boundary that Allah spent Allah has said, every single time that you cross it, guess what you're earning sin, you are going to be responsible for that you're going to suffer because of that. So have the CFP, this you know, realization that what

00:42:19--> 00:43:02

is written for me will reach me. So I don't need to, you know resort to cheap and unlawful ways to get what I like. And for this, we have to put our trust in Allah, not in our job or in our business. Because then again, if we put our trust in, you know, our job, our business or for example, certain people, then we will panic, we will worry and when people panic and worry, they make really, really bad decisions. In our heads we learn that if you were to rely upon Allah with the reliance that is due, meeting with the reliance that he deserves, then you would be given provision like the birds, they go out hungry in the morning and come back with full bellies in the evenings, soprano Allah.

00:43:03--> 00:43:46

And then this also means that when Allah subhanaw taala is the provider we should strive to get provision and we should also ask him for provision beg Allah subhanaw taala when a man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that How should I make Dora? He said Allah himself, he said, say Allah homophily were how many wha Fini was zucchini for things that Oh ALLAH forgive me Have mercy on me, protect me and give me sustenance give me give me provision. And when you have a need, then say Allah Marzocco Allah, O Allah provide us in a Hadees we learned that when you say Allah homos zucchini, or Allah, you give me you provide for me, called Allah. Allah says, Put Val to I have done

00:43:46--> 00:44:31

that. And he This is Allah's promise that he will provide you. So don't panic, and don't resort to unlawful ways to get what you like. If you ask them, who created the heavens and earth and subjected the sun and the moon, they would surely say Allah, then how are they diluted? Allah extends provision for whom He wills of his servants and restricts for them. Indeed, Allah is of all things knowing. And if you ask them, who sends down rain from the sky and gives life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness, they would surely say Allah say Alhamdulillah All praise is to Allah, but most of them do not reason. And this worldly life is not but diversion and amusement, and indeed the

00:44:31--> 00:44:59

home of the hereafter. That is the eternal life. If only they knew this, the life of this world is compared to what play an amusement any is temporary just as a game in this world is that while the game is going on, there's so much excitement, I there's so much fear, anxiety, apprehension, and then what happens when the game ends, people leave the stadium, right and the stadium is just empty seats.

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

And then even seasons get cancelled one after the other. And so certain teams end they remain champions for another year Michelle law, right? But we see this, that end screens turn off, the glittery images are gone, stadiums become empty and just like that, our eyes also will close, we will leave this world and everything in it, any whatever is in this world is not going to come with us. So the real home is the home of the hereafter. We're in the Hirata here. dakara of us parents it says in the Quran, that the home of the hereafter that is the home of stability, meaning that home is going to last this life is not going to last. And when they board a ship, they supplicate Allah

00:45:47--> 00:46:28

sincere to him in religion, meaning when they make Durrell in a time like this, they call upon only Allah, but when he delivers them to the land at once they associate others with him, meaning in difficulty, they remember Allah but when things are back to normal, they forget about him, so that they will deny what we have granted them and they will enjoy themselves, but they are going to know Have they not seen that we made mcha a safe sanctuary, while people are being taken away all around them, that in false hood do they believe and in the favor of Allah they disbelieve? Because you see the people of Makkah they hesitated believing because they said that if we believe that we will lose

00:46:28--> 00:47:17

out on our worldly blessings. So they're being reminded of the blessings that Allah God has already granted them but who has given you this? And who is more unjust than one who invents a lie about Allah or denies the truth when it has come to him? Is there not in Hell is sufficient residence for the disbelievers when levina jaha Davina and those who strive for us learner Deanna whom sabudana we will surely guide them to our ways we're in the Lucha lemma is more sinning and Indeed Allah is with the doers of good. So we see over here that guidance he Daya is connected with what with Jihad with striving, meaning the person whose tribes will find guidance and the more persons tribes, the more

00:47:17--> 00:47:55

guided they will be ignore claim says that Allah subhanaw taala has conditioned guidance with Jihad over here. So the person whose tribes more will have more guidance, and the most important Jihad the most important form of striving is to strive against the knifes the desire, the shaitan and the world for things to strive against the knifes the desire, the shaitan and the world. So he who strives against these four things for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala then Allah will guide him on the paths of his approval letter the unknown sabudana Allah will guide them

00:47:56--> 00:48:36

and these paths will lead such a person to Jenna and the person who stops striving then they're deprived of guidance in proportion to how much they leave striving so these days Masha Allah A lot of you are striving a great deal and he I find it difficult to talk okay but how do you listen to two hours Masha Allah and then you also recite the Quran and you're fasting and some of you Mashallah you're doing this in the middle of the night or late in the evening or first thing in the morning because of you know, the time but any This is striving and this striving is worth it. Because this striving in sha Allah it will increase your near guidance think about it every single

00:48:36--> 00:49:17

day, you know, when you listen when you read to a new juice, you come across something that you perhaps did not know before, or you get reminded of something that you had completely forgotten about, or you're motivated to do something that you had neglected or no you are you are you know continuing with the same good deeds but but within you know, with with greater a man with greater motivation with with more eagerness for a loss lb todos reward. So definitely, when a person strives in the way of Allah, and the striving requires first of all that you strive against yourself against your desire, you know, the nups desires sleep, desire is what you just want to sleep on, you want to

00:49:17--> 00:49:59

eat, you want to just chill, you want to just play a game maybe, but you oppose that, right? you oppose that. And then you oppose the temptation of shaitan and then the world so this will bring you in sha Allah, more he Daya. So for guidance, struggle is essential. It is extremely important. So remember, disciplining your knifes striving against your nuts is the greatest jihad. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Almunia he do Mangia had enough so who feel thought Attila? The Mujahid is the one who strives against himself in obedience to Allah because what does the knifes urge

00:50:00--> 00:50:40

person to do to commit sin, right in an upsell a model to be Su. But when a person does not listen to the nups and makes the neffs worship Allah, then this is a form of striving. Right? And the Prophet sallallahu earlier son was asked that a unity of love, which amongst people is the best, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a man who strives in the way of Allah, with his wealth and with his knifes with his wealth and with his knifes and yes, your wealth probably is also going into this because if you're, you know streaming something live every single day for two hours perhaps your internet is you know, Masha Allah some of you are listening while you're on the go,

00:50:40--> 00:51:26

your data is probably completely exhausted. So you are, you know, investing your money in this and you are striving against your knifes in this so it is worth it. And remember that when a person's tribes in the way of Allah, in Hades we learn that a person will be told that a person will be Yanni allowed to enter Jannah from any of its gates, for into who and why because striving in the way of Allah is for a nobleman available Gemma is one of the gates from among the gates of Paradise, meaning it is something that will allow a person to enter Paradise. And because of it, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said you people love will be in Hama Hama, that Allah grant I will remove worry

00:51:26--> 00:52:13

and grief from a person because of their striving. Because when you're striving in the way of Allah, you have a greater goal now, right? You have something to look forward to something better, something you know that that requires you to focus. And because of that, you know the little little things that used to bother you once upon a time. Now they don't bother you anymore, but hamdulillah surah to Rome Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, la flamme meme, Woody but your room, the Romans have been defeated in the in the nearest land, but they after their defeat will overcome their enemy within three to nine years to Allah belongs the command before and after. And that day the believers

00:52:13--> 00:52:54

will rejoice. So here a prediction was given us of the future was given. You see at the time of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. The Romans and the Persians were constantly at war the the Byzantines and the Persians were constantly at war. And remember that the Romans were Christian, and the Muslims, of course, they felt closer to them, and the Persians were idolaters, and the machine of Makkah felt closer to them. Alright, so when the Romans were defeated, the mushrikeen of Morocco were very, very happy. But these verses were revealed that within a few years, Romans will be victorious again, and on that same day, Muslims will rejoice for another reason. When these verses

00:52:54--> 00:53:39

were revealed, the Muslims didn't know what that reason would be. And they found out on the day of birth, because when they were victorious at Burger, on the same day, the Muslims received news about the victory of the Romans, in the victory of Allah, meaning the believers will rejoice, why in the victory of Allah the victory that Allah will give them, He gives victory to whom He wills, and he is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful, it is the promise of Allah, Allah does not fail in his promise. But most of the people do not know, you see when a person is defeated, or they even feel defeated, any, it is something that makes you feel very sad and worried. And any time like this, a person

00:53:39--> 00:54:22

needs comfort, they need to know that things will change, they need to be told that their loss is not permanent. And the Quran brings us so much hope. That is when you read these verses, you see that defeat is not permanent. Right? It is not something that defines you. Failure is an event in life, any it's not something that defines you, which means that it will go away within a very short time. The days feel long, but the years are truly short. So this is why it's so important that we keep reciting the Quran because the Quran gives you hope it lifts you up when you're feeling down. They know what is apparent of the worldly life meaning majority of the people who don't know about

00:54:22--> 00:55:00

the promises of Allah, they know what is apparent of the worldly life only, but they have the hereafter are unaware. And he These are people who don't believe in Allah's promise. Why? Because they don't believe in the hereafter. And what is it that they believe in? What is it that they're focused on? Only on worldly life? And this is a case of the majority of the people that in worldly matters, very skilled experts, you know, Mashallah very, very knowledgeable, but when it comes to the Hereafter, the fact that there is resurrection that there is hisab that there is Jenna. There is

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

Now, they don't even know the basic things, hustle and bustle. He said there is among people who can scratch a coin with his fingernail. And he can tell you how much it weighs, yet he just by touching it, just by feeling it, he can tell you how much that coin weighs. But he does not. And he does not make a mistake in that. But he does not even know how to pray.

00:55:24--> 00:56:03

He does not even know how to pray. Meaning when it comes to worldly matters, experts, you know, so well, you know, experienced and skilled but when it comes to the matters of Deen, completely ignorant. And there are many people who are like this. And this is something that should not make us judge other people but reflect over ourselves. That, you know, for example, a woman might might feel very, very skilled in the kitchen that she can turn, you know, any ingredient into the best dish ever. Right? But when it comes to the matters of the deen, then how skilled am I? When it comes to the knowledge of Deen? How much of that do I know? And we see that in a lot of people when it comes

00:56:03--> 00:56:45

to worldly matters because we earn money through our worldly skills, right? So So when it comes to worldly matters any we're very skilled, we take this very, very seriously. But when it comes to the matters of the Hereafter, we're generally very, very, you know, careless about it. We're like, yeah, it's okay. When it comes to his account. For instance, we we calculate, you know, we don't pay much attention to calculating it correctly, and carefully. But when it comes to filing for taxes, etc, then we we count every cent every penny Subhanallah, we learn in a Hadees, that there is nothing that will bring you close to genda, except that I have ordered you have it. And there is nothing

00:56:45--> 00:56:48

that will draw you close to hell, except that I have forbidden you from it.

00:56:49--> 00:57:30

So we must learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what he has brought also. Because if we're just focused on the law hit on the apparent app aspect of this world, then what is the difference between us and animals? Really, if you think about it, animals also know the raw head of this world really, really well, sometimes even better than us. They know when storms are coming. They know how to prepare for the winter months, they know how to find and gather and store their food, how to build their homes, how to travel, you know, north south, or whatever direction that they're going in any day. No, all of these law had aspects really well. And if our focus is also

00:57:30--> 00:58:15

just the law had aspects of the world, then what is the difference between us and the animals. So remember, it is not wrong to you know, have worldly skills. But it is wrong, that a person only has worldly knowledge. And when it comes to the matters of the Hereafter, they don't pay much attention to that, because, and they dismiss it. I will amiata fucka Rafi unfussy him, do they not contemplate within themselves. Allah has not created the heavens and the earth and what is between them except in truth, and for a specified term. And indeed, many of the people in the matter of the meeting with their Lord or disbelievers have not traveled through the earth, and observed how was the end of

00:58:15--> 00:58:57

those before them, they were greater than them in power, and they plowed the earth and built it up more than they have built it up. SubhanAllah if you think about it, the pyramids that fit our own are standing till today, what technology was that we don't even know. And their messengers came to them with clear evidences, and Allah would not have ever wronged them, but they were wronging themselves, then the end of those who did evil was the worst consequence, because they denied the signs of Allah and used to ridicule them, Allah begins creation, then he will repeat it, then to him, you will be returned. So never forget that. And the day that our appears, the criminals will be

00:58:57--> 00:59:43

in despair, and there will not be for them among their alleged partners, any intercessors and they will then be disbelievers in their partners, and the day that our appears that day, they will become separated. And as for those who had believed and unrighteous deeds, whom Pharaoh but in your boon, they will be in a garden of Paradise, delighted. This is real success. And notice how it is said home there, because they will be together. But as for those who disbelieved and denied our verses, and the meeting of the Hereafter, those will be brought into the punishment to remain for silverhand Allah. So Exalted is Allah when you reach the evening, and when you reach the morning when we take

00:59:43--> 00:59:59

this for granted, right? We really take this for granted. Every single time that we reached the evening we're able to complete our fast we're able to break it, Masha, Allah ne This is Allah's blessing that we should be grateful for. Every time that we enter the morning. This is another blessing that we

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

I've received but we teach. But But we take each day and each night for granted. And to him is do all praise throughout the heavens and the earth and Exalted is He at night. And when you are at noon, he brings the living out of the dead, and brings the dead out of the living and brings to life the earth after its lifelessness and thus Will you be brought out. So remember, only Allah is the Creator of life, we could fertilize an egg in a lab, but it will only grow and become a living creature, when Allah subhanaw taala puts life into it. And obvious signs is that he created you from dust, then suddenly you were human beings dispersing all from one human being, woman Aya T, and of

01:00:47--> 01:01:34

His Signs is that he created for you from yourselves mates, meaning spouses from your own species, human beings, why that you may find tranquility in them and also remember that what was made from them. So there is no like competition between men and women that men are supposed to be enemies to women or vice versa. No, we're from each other were the same, any will we're all from the same source. Why has the last panel Tata created for you from yourselves mates, that you may find tranquility in them you may find sukoon and he placed between you Mahwah death and wahama affection and mercy indeed in that are Signs for people who give thought. So we see here that mutual love,

01:01:34--> 01:02:20

affection, mercy, kindness, compassion between a husband and wife is an iron Minaya Tila, it is a sign from among the signs of Allah, because the two are not even related by blood, sometimes from completely two different parts of the world. But then as they come together in marriage, they love one another so much. And this shows us that one of the objectives of marriage is what Lita schooner la her to find tranquility and sukoon, through your spouse, meaning, if marriage is not bringing sukoon On the contrary, it is bringing pain and suffering and there's abuse, then it defeats the purpose of marriage, that is not marriage. Marriage is meant to bring sukoon to a person. And if

01:02:20--> 01:03:03

that's the qun is not coming, there is constant, you know, pain and suffering, then perhaps that marriage is not supposed to, you know, continue, because marriage is meant to bring sukoon and sometimes what happens is that we've absolutely forbid the option of divorce, we think it is how long it is not unlawful, any a person is not required to live in a relationship that is destroying them, that is bringing them grief and suffering on a daily basis. Why because almost puntata has has legislated the option of divorce any we have borrowed from other religions, concepts and we have made them Islamic. You know, it's it's not an Islamic concept that you're supposed to, you know,

01:03:03--> 01:03:46

stay together until death do us apart? No, this is not an Islamic concept. This is a Christian concept. So, marriage is meant to bring sukoon and we see that what brings sukoon in marriage, that peace and tranquility is the love and mercy that Allah subhanaw taala blesses a couple with because what jar Allah, He has made love and mercy. And Allah soprano Toronto blesses a couple with love and mercy when they're loving and merciful to one another. So show that love and mercy and ask Allah subhanaw taala for that love and mercy. Because when people don't show that love and mercy, then and they don't fear Allah, they become disrespectful, abusive, and they neglect the rights of one

01:03:46--> 01:04:30

another, then marriage becomes a living hell. The thing is that we show compassion to children. We show compassion to even our animals, our pets, but remember, your spouse also deserves compassion from you. You see what's mentioned here, Mahwah, death and wahama. Your spouse deserves love and compassion, mercy from you. What does that look like? It means that you understand their needs, you care about their needs, it means that you are forgiving towards them. You understand their fatigue, you know you have empathy, and you are there for them in order to support them. You're not just concerned about what you deserve from them, but you're also concerned about what you can give them

01:04:31--> 01:04:59

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said hydrocodone hydrocodone is the best of you are those who are best to your wives best to your families. So mercy towards your spouse means that you help them and that you were useful towards them. And I had these we learn a habit everybody it Allahu taala And Pharaoh only really the most beloved of servants to Allah or those who are most beneficial to their families. mercy towards your spouse means that you show love and you let that love

01:05:00--> 01:05:37

be known when the Prophet sallallahu artesan was asked a UNESCO, like which among the people is the most beloved to you, he said, Our insha Allah shall deliver on how he said it was his wife. And loving your spouse having mercy towards your spouse means that you accept them as they are, I should have done more and has said that I would eat from a piece of meat, and the Prophet sallallahu Urdu son would eat from the same piece of meat from the same place, he would bite it at the same place as I did. And she said that at times, I would remember your rating. And she said I would I would drink from the cup. And you know, he would drink from the same place. They would share, not just food, but

01:05:37--> 01:06:21

even dishes Subhan Allah. In the end, you see, this love and care has to be both sided. It's very normal to have disagreements. It's human to make mistakes. It's human to offend each other, and sometimes hurt each other inadvertently. But it's imperative that we don't dwell in those conflicts. We don't prolong them. We learn in a Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, shall I not inform you of your women in paradise? He said they are lewd, what do they mean? He described them and then he said that when she gets angry, or she was offended, or her husband is angry, she says My hand is in yours, and I will not sleep until you're fine. So panela any I'm not okay with

01:06:21--> 01:07:04

you being mad, I'm not okay with us, you know, being angry with each other, I will only sleep once we solve this problem Subhan Allah. And if a couple is like this, that they're quick to resolve conflict, they don't dwell on their conflict, only then they will have love and mercy towards one another. So remember, your spouse will not be perfect, they will not be perfect. And because you're married to them, you live with them, you will see faults in them that others don't, because you are closest to them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no believing man should hate a believing woman, meaning his wife, if there is something that he dislikes in her, there will be

01:07:04--> 01:07:46

another that he likes. So yes, there may be things about your spouse that really annoy you, but don't focus on them. Focus on things, you know, on their strengths on the good that they have to offer. And show that mercy show that love so that love and mercy will increase and of His signs as the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. And this variation, any it shows that this is you know, this this variation is is a sign of Allah soprano, todos Greatness, this diversity is a miracle. But we have used this as a way to discriminate against people sopran Allah, Allah has created this diversity. And that means that

01:07:46--> 01:08:30

unless punctata knows your language, your unique way of expressing yourself. So talk to Allah. And of His Signs is your sleep by night and day, and you're seeking of his bounty, indeed, in that are Signs for people who listen. And other signs is that he shows you the lightning, causing fear and aspiration. And he sends down rain from the sky by which he brings to life the earth after it's lifelessness indeed, and that are Signs for people who use reason. And all His Signs is that the heaven and earth remain by his command, then when he calls you with a single call from the earth, immediately you will come forth, and To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and earth, all are to

01:08:30--> 01:09:12

him devoutly obedient and it is he who begins creation and he repeats it, and that is ever and that is even easier for him meaning repeating the creation, repeating the process of creation is even easier for Allah subhanaw taala. So why do you have doubt in resurrection? To Him belongs the highest attribute in the heavens and earth and he is the Exalted in Might the wise, he presents to you an example from yourselves? Do you have among those whom your right hands possess any partners in what We have provided for you so that you were equal there in and would fear them as you fear as your fear of one another within a partnership? Thus do We detail the verses for people who use

01:09:12--> 01:09:56

reason? Think about it. If you have money, would you ever give complete ownership of that and equal authority over that to just another random person? No, you won't any Subhanallah some people are so careful. They're so stingy that they don't even share their money with their spouse. Any the wife has absolutely no access, no access whatsoever. She has to constantly beg the husband please, I need money to buy groceries. I need money to buy, you know, clothes for myself or the children or etc. Any as human beings, we become so greedy with our wealth that we would never want to share that with another human. And yet there are people who think that Allah has a partner that Allah has a child

01:09:56--> 01:09:59

uni How is that possible? You don't want any

01:10:00--> 01:10:50

Human to be equal to you, yet us crime equals to God. Billy taba alladhina, Lala Moo ha ha ha humby later in, but those who wrong follow their own desires without knowledge, then who can guide one whom Allah has sent a stray and for them there are no helpers, so direct your face to word the religion inclining to truths adhere to the fitrah of Allah upon which he has created all people the nature, no chain should there be in the creation of Allah, that is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know. So, in this IRA, we learn about the fitrah, that Allah subhanaw taala has created people upon you see, farfara is to open up and fall clear is the creator, the originator. So

01:10:50--> 01:11:33

fifth, right is that it is as if Allah subhanaw taala opened us up and put something inside of us any It is our intuition, it is something that is already within us. It is the nature that Allah subhanaw taala has created us upon and what is that nature that almost Pantera has created us upon that we submit to Allah, it is our natural disposition to surrender to Allah to worship Allah. And this is the fifth row which causes us to submit to Allah, you know, naturally it is ingrained within every single child. In the Quran. We learn one molecule general insert in early obudu. I have not created jinn and men except that they should worship me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:11:33--> 01:12:17

said that every child is born upon the fitrah upon the nature, and what is that nature? What does fitrah teach us? It teaches us that Allah is our Lord. Allah is our God, it teaches us morality, it has that you know, because of that we have conscience, that we feel bad when we have done something wrong. So this is the nature that Allah subhanaw taala has created us upon, but then what happens in Hades, we learn that every child is born upon the fitrah. And then his parents make him into a Jew or a Christian, or into some other, you know, religion. So basically, it is the nurture then that corrupts a person. Right. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala has sent revelation, he has sent

01:12:17--> 01:13:03

prophets to nurture people in Islam. So the nature is to surrender to Allah, and the nurture the way we are raised, that definitely has an impact on us. It's undeniable. And that this is a reason why alesse puntata has sent prophets to guide people to Islam. Mooney, Bina LA, adhere to it, turning in repentance to him, and fear him and establish prayer and do not be of those who associate others with Allah, or of those who have divided their religion and become into sects into different groups, every faction rejoicing in what it has. And when adversity touches the people, they call upon their Lord, turning in repentance to him, than when he lets them taste a mercy from him at once a party of

01:13:03--> 01:13:44

them, associate others with their Lord, so that they will deny what we have granted them, then enjoy yourselves for you are going to know or have we sat down to them and authority, and it speaks of what they were associating with him. And when we let the people taste mercy, they rejoice they're in, but if evil afflicts them for what their hands have put forth, immediately to despair. Notice it has been said over here, that if evil afflicts them, for what their hands have put forth, meaning because of their own actions. So it is important that when we're struck by difficulty, we don't begin to despair, we don't get exasperated, because that's not going to take any problems away. What

01:13:44--> 01:14:27

is going to help our situation is when we change our actions, be my ultimate ID him. So when you change your action, you change your situation, do they not see that a like sense provision for whom He wills and restricts it, indeed, in that are Signs for people who believe and this is also a part of life, fluctuation of wealth, you see, sometimes we have a lot, sometimes less, and this is something that draws us to Allah subhanaw taala makes us think more about the home of the hereafter. So give the relative his right, as well as the needy and the traveler, that is best for those who desire the face of Allah and it is they who will be the successful. So, in this ayah, we are being

01:14:27--> 01:15:00

told that we should get that we should give the relative his right and then of course, those are need and the travelers why because this is best. Meaning if you want to benefit yourself, then what should you do, you should spend on the relatives as well. Generally when we think about you know, giving money for the sake of Allah, we only think about you know, giving charity to the poor, right and that is fine. People who are hungry people who are in need we should spend on them, but we should also spend on our

01:15:00--> 01:15:41

relatives. And this is something that will increase in your risk. And it's and it is actually a charity that will bring you double reward. Because in Hades we learned that giving charity to a needy person is a charity. But giving charity to a relative brings double reward, one for charity, and one for being good to a relative because the last part God has commanded us to do that. And the best form of charity, remember, is to give to a relative who is a cashier. cashier is someone who is estranged or secret enemy, any you know that in their heart, they don't like you, so they avoid you. And they're mean to you, you know that they try to stay away from you. So spending on them.

01:15:43--> 01:16:23

And whatever you give for interest to increase within the wealth of people will not increase with Allah, any apparently when you give interest or when you take it apparently, it seems like your money is growing, but in reality it is not. But what you give is a cat desiring the face of Allah, those are the multipliers. So here we're being taught to give us a cat. And this shows us that the only time when we spend in the way of Allah should not just be the cat, we should give the cat but we should also spend otherwise, because you see earlier, General spending or general so the call was mentioned and here specifically is a cat as mentioned. So we should focus on both types of spending.

01:16:23--> 01:17:01

And here we learned that we should give the cat for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala only for the sake of Allah. And remember it is an obligation. But when you fulfill this obligation, there is a huge reward depending on your intention. givings a cat is something that will save a person from fear and grief in the hereafter. It protects a person from the evil of their own wealth. in Hades we learn whoever gives a cause of his wealth, then the shallow the evil of his wealth will go away. So it purifies wealth. And when a person gives a cat, the end, and they also fulfill, you know other obligations than shallow they will be among the severe pain and show her that on the Day of

01:17:01--> 01:17:41

Judgment. And remember giving the cat draws a person closer to paradise, it takes them away from hell. And it's a means of entry into paradise. So to give yours a cat, seriously, Allah is the one who created you, then provided for you that will cause you to die, and then we'll give you life. Are there any of your partners? Who does anything of that? Do they give life and death? Exalted is He and high above what they associated with him. So who is God God is supposed to be who the one who creates the one who gives life The one who gives death, the one who is eternal. So when people ascribe a child to God, you need that child is able to give life is able to give death. Well,

01:17:41--> 01:17:51

apparently people killed him. Any that that cannot be God, who is God, God is supposed to be perfect. And hey, the giver of life, the one who will never die

01:17:53--> 01:18:42

luchador alpha shadowfell Berry well, corruption has appeared throughout the land and see why, by reason of what the hands of people have earned. Why Why does the last pound Allah allowed this corruption to spread? Why doesn't he prevent it from happening? So, he may let them taste part of the consequence of what they have done? Why? that perhaps they will return? What an important idea for us to understand. A lot of times people wonder, why is there evil on earth? Why does God not stop evil from happening, animals are dying people are dying, this is happening that is happening. We learn here that any kind of corruption any kind of evil, that has spread on land or in sea sea is

01:18:42--> 01:19:25

also mentioned the waters are also mentioned here. Any kind of corruption that has spread. This is a direct result of what of what the people have done. This is a direct result of their own actions. And Allah subhanaw taala lets that evil spread. Why so that people may see the result of their own actions Allah spawn Tada, lets them taste that you know what, when you do this, when you do such actions, there are going to be consequences. And why does a less parent ought to let that happen? Learn on your own so that people will return they will think about what they're doing, they will realize their mistake and they will stop the wrongdoing and this will teach them the the bigger

01:19:26--> 01:19:59

lesson, which is that there is life after death and there will be consequences for what we are doing right now. So this is why we have to be careful. So we see that because of facade. Sorry because of the actions of people. There is corruption, devastation, both tangible and intangible, both tangible and intangible. And remember that facade is a result of disobeying Allah and His messenger. We learned a Hadees that jurina Villa to asaro

01:20:00--> 01:20:46

humiliation and disgrace is placed on who on those who oppose the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam meaning such people will definitely suffer. Those who belittle the sooner those who ignore it than such people will be belittled and humiliated. We learned that our words have consequences. The our shuttle de la Mourinho once she, you know, gestured with her hand about how short someone was. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you have said a word, which if it was added to the water of the sea, it would make it completely it would make it bitter Guinea, it would this is, this is the reality of what you have said. So, remember that our words our actions

01:20:46--> 01:21:31

definitely have consequences. And at times, unless panel data allows us to experience that, you know, for example, the spread of a disease even this is something that should not make us question God, Oh, where is God? and How come? You know God has allowed this to happen? This should make us question ourselves, that what on earth what were we doing? Because of which we were deprived of God's mercy? When Allah is a rock man, he has created the world so beautifully. He has given us everything that we need over here. When he is compassionate, he is forgiving. He is unhealthy in the forbearing yet we are suffering so much why don't point fingers at God point fingers at yourself?

01:21:31--> 01:22:17

Check yourself what what are we doing right now? And there are so many warnings that we have been given in the Quran and Sunnah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that when fascia when indecency will spread in people, so much so that indies that that people commit indecent things out in the open without any shame, then what's going to happen by our own plague, and strange diseases will spread among them diseases which which the people before them, were completely unaware of, they had no idea about them non existent before. So this is a result of what our own actions so we need to look into ourselves, what are we doing? And remember, what a loss products are, allows us to suffer.

01:22:17--> 01:23:05

This is also His mercy, because it makes us contemplate on our situation, and, and really improve ourselves. If we didn't suffer, how would we learn? So it's, it's a it's a lesson for us say, oh, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam traveled through the land and observe how was the end of those before. Most of them were associators. So direct your face to word the correct religion, before a day comes from Allah, of which there is no repelling that day, they will be divided, whoever disbelieves upon him as the consequence of his disbelief, and whoever does righteousness they are for themselves preparing that he may reward those who have believed and unrighteous deeds out of his

01:23:05--> 01:23:49

bounty. Indeed, he does not like the disbelievers. And all the signs is that he sends the winds as Bringers of good tidings, and to let you taste His mercy. And so the ships may sail at his command. And so you may seek of his bounty, and perhaps you will be grateful. So this shows us that when the wind blows, it blows by the command of Allah, so we should never curse the wind that Oh, it's so windy, and we should not complain about it. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us Do not curse the wind is only doing what Allah has commanded it to do. instead make the ask Allah subhanaw taala for its good, then the DA is Allahumma inni Luca hi raha hai Rama Fida? Well, hi Rama

01:23:49--> 01:24:01

all sila to be what are all to become in Shirdi Murphy Hawa Shalimar all sila to be well what are the becoming Charlie what Charlie Murphy who shall remain or Scylla to be the role I asked you for the good that is in it.

01:24:02--> 01:24:41

That all I asked you for its goodness, the good that is in it and the good that it was sent with and I seek your protection from its evil, the evil that is in it and the evil that it was sent with. And another law is Allah whom Allah can learn or payment that Allah make this wind fertilizing, not barren, and we have already sent messengers before you to their peoples, and they came to them with clear evidences, then we took retribution from those who committed crimes and incumbent upon us was support of the believers. It is Allah who sends the winds and the stir the clouds and spread them in the sky, however, that he wills and he makes them fragments. So you see the rain emerge from within

01:24:41--> 01:24:59

them. And when he causes it to fall upon whom He wills of his servants, immediately they rejoice they become so happy, although they were before it was sent down upon them before that in despair. So observe the effects of the mercy of Allah any changes your mood, even how he gives life to the earth.

01:25:00--> 01:25:42

After its lifelessness indeed, that same one will give life to the dead, and he is over all things competent. But if we should send a bad wind, and they saw their crops turned yellow, they would remain thereafter, disbelievers. You need the despair of people is astonishing. It's ever growing. So indeed, you will not make. So indeed you will not make the dead here. Nor will you make the deaf hear the call, when the turn their backs retreating, and you cannot guide the blind away from their error, you will only make here those who believe in our verses. So they are Muslims in submission to Allah. Allah is the one who created you from weakness, then made after weakness, strength, then made

01:25:42--> 01:26:24

after strength, weakness and white hair, he creates what He wills and he is the knowing the competent sopran Allah utter weakness at the beginning. And then there is growth and then decline and weakness. Again, this is from the signs of Allah, there is a purpose to this, that we should remember our reality and never ever become proud. And we should realize that a loss patata has complete power over all of our faculties. And the day that our appears, the criminals will swear they had remained but an hour that thus they were diluted, meaning in this life also people are deluded, they think that they will stay here forever. So they completely forget about the hereafter.

01:26:24--> 01:27:06

And on the Day of Judgment, they will say, Oh, we lived in the world for only a short time. But those who are given knowledge and faith, notice the combination of E Ll well Eamon both, they will say you remained the extent of Allah's decree until the Day of Resurrection. And this is the Day of Resurrection, but you did not use to know sopran Allah, you see over here, l and E man are mentioned together. And this is something that benefits a person in this life, and it will also benefit them on the Day of Judgment. So that day, their excuse will not benefit those who wronged nor will they be asked to appease Allah. And We have certainly presented to the people in this Quran from every

01:27:06--> 01:27:37

kind of example. But if you should bring them aside, the disbelievers will surely say you believers are but falsifies, they won't believe this does Allah seal the hearts of those who do not know so no matter which eye they see, they don't benefit. So be patient. Indeed, the promise of Allah is truth. And let them not disquiet you who are not certain in faith well as the refund Nicola Deena up known being the people who don't have conviction, don't let them make you weak. Don't Don't listen to them. Don't get affected by them.

01:27:38--> 01:28:26

So not Look, man Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, la flamme meme, the these are verses of the wise book as guidance and mercy for the doers of good And who are they? There are those who establish prayer and gives a cat and they have the hereafter are certain in faith. In some of through bacala. We learned that these are the mood, the mood, the cane, the people who have Taqwa, right, who benefit from the Quran and who have these qualities. And here we see that such people are more sinning, those who are doers of good So the fact is that the person who has the COA who is conscious of Allah will definitely do good because the consciousness of Allah makes you you know do what you're doing

01:28:26--> 01:29:15

with excellence with more care Allah He Karla, who the mirror be him those are on right guidance from their Lord, what Allah eco home will mostly home and it is those who are the successful and all the people is He who buys Lucha, well, Hades, the amusement of speech, why to mislead others from the way of Allah without knowledge? And who takes it in ridicule? Those will have a humiliating punishment. You see Lawal, Hadeeth is mentioned here. Level is a thing in which a person delights himself, meaning something in which a person is so occupied and they're having so much fun, that they're diverted, they're distracted from what is more important. So Lawwell had his speech that is

01:29:15--> 01:29:57

low is idle talk or distracting, you know, frivolous, amusing speech or discourse. And this could be in the form of song It could be in the form of a story, something that is read something that is heard or something that is watched. So here we learn that love will Hades What does it do? Leo Lin Lauren Sevilla, it leads a person away from the path of Allah. So now when Hades remember it takes a person away from us and in Hades. Hades is the Quran and I will talk such things they distract a person from the best speech because the heart and mind can only have any one thing

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

meaning the heart and

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

mind can only be occupied with one thing at a time, they have a limited capacity. So I'll be very sad that these are those new and latest things in which a person spends their time in order to amuse themselves. So for example, the TV show that they're watching another episode that they're watching, or, for example, a new song that they're listening to, so new and latest things in which a person is spending their time. But what is the reason to amuse themselves to find pleasure, but then the problem is that they make a person heedless. So this could include song, humor, comedy, and everything that does not teach any lesson, meaning it doesn't really benefit a person. And why is

01:30:42--> 01:31:28

this a problem? Because they arouse a person's base desires and they get him occupied with useless things, they make a person lawful negligent, so Qatada said that it is possible that a person does not by law will Hades with their money, but when they enjoy it, then it is like they have bought it because they have given preference to it, meaning they have given preference to it over the Quran under the common law. So it will Kathy said that this is very detrimental to a person that they give preference to what is false and fake and unrealistic and wrong over truthful speech. So in Abdullah mosteiro de la Horne who was asked about this idea, he said, Will la isla de la ilaha illa who By

01:31:28--> 01:32:07

Allah, the One besides on there is no god worthy of worship, this is Alina This is singing, meaning this is singing and music. And he said this three times. So any definitely when you when you've been listening to a song, for example, and it plays in your head over and over again, then what's going to happen even in Salah that same song is going to be on repeat in your head. If you've been watching, you know, for example, a certain show and you're anticipating any what's going to happen in the next one in Salah also you're thinking about that, then you're not going to find comfort and joy in the recitation of the Quran, you're going to want something that moves your your you know,

01:32:07--> 01:32:47

your your desire your nuts, that that satisfies your knifes and the thing with enough's is that very quickly it gets bored. Once you start feeding the nuts, it will never ever be satisfied, isn't it that when you get used to one cup of coffee, then you want a second cup, right? You want an even stronger cup. So this is the reality of the knifes. So when you feed that desire than it's going to take over you, it's going to distract you from what is more important. So it occurred to be sad that this Lina means that song which moves the soul and incites desires and disobedience and such songs that mentioned the beauty of women and you know, their praise, alcohol and other unlawful things you

01:32:47--> 01:33:29

need these things must be avoided. And he said that those songs which are free from these vices, what vices, musical instruments, and you know, for harsh lyrics, they can be listened to, but for a short period of time, that specific events, any even if you're listening to a sheet for example, it shouldn't be that the machine is playing non stop in your car, non stop in your head, that you've got those headphones on and the entire time you know that that machine is playing in your head, because then you'll be singing the words of Nasheed and not the words of the vicar of Allah, then you won't be able to make space for Quran in your life. So remember, Lawwell Hadees is going to take

01:33:29--> 01:34:12

you away from the hassanal Hadees. What are you going to choose? What is your goal, and when our Verses are recited to them, he turns away arrogantly as if he had not heard them, as if there was in his ears, deafness, so give him tidings of a painful punishment. Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds for them are the guardians of pleasure, wherein they abide eternally. It is the promise of Allah which is truth, and he is the Exalted in Might the wise, he created the heavens without pillars that you see, and has cast into the earth firmly set mountains, lest it should shift with you and disperse there in from every creature. And we sent down rain from the sky, and made

01:34:12--> 01:34:59

grow there in plants of every noble kind, had the huncle law. This is the creation of Allah. So show me what those other than Him have created. Rather the wrongdoers are in clear error. Well occurred at a local man al hikma and we had certainly given look man wisdom, and what was the essence of that wisdom? What was the main the first lesson the first, the impact of that wisdom? anish Colella that be grateful to Allah. Remember, Look, man was a wise man. He was not a prophet. But yet his words of wisdom are actually recorded in the Quran. Because the person was given wisdom is given a lot of good. The doors of goodness are opened up for them and the first part of wisdom is

01:35:00--> 01:35:45

is to be grateful to Allah. A lot of people will practice gratitude and he This is something that is, you know, the new trend. You'll see this in every, you know, class where, or every book or you know, every every thing that people suggest, you know for self growth and etc, that you know, practice gratitude, practice gratitude, but then gratitude for two words who gratitude is meaningless if it's not expressed to the giver, the giver of blessings, so anishka, but not just Oscar, but Oscar Lila, be grateful to Allah. We don't just practice gratitude for the sake of gratitude, we practice gratitude towards Allah subhanaw taala we show gratitude to Allah, when my

01:35:45--> 01:36:28

Yesh confer in them is cruel enough, see, and whoever is grateful is grateful for the benefit of himself, woman Kufa, and whoever denies his favor, than Indeed Allah is free of need and praiseworthy. He doesn't need your gratitude, and mentioned when Look, man said to his son, while he was instructing him, that Oh, my son, do not associate anything with Allah, and all parents must teach their children about this. Indeed, association with him is great injustice, this is very, very wrong. You see, a wise person begins with their family, Look, man advised his son, and we have enjoined upon men care for his parents. Why? Because his mother carried him increasing her in

01:36:28--> 01:37:12

weakness upon weakness, and his weaning isn't two years. So even more weakness, be grateful to me and to your parents, to me is the final destination. So we have to be grateful to Allah. And we also have to be grateful towards people and among people. First is who our parents. Why, because they took care of us, they raised us, they taught us, Sophia Marina said, that he who offers the five prayers, then he is thanking Allah, and whoever after every prayer, praise for his parents, then he is also thanking his parents. So this is the minimum that we can do and make it a habit that you know, when you pray Salah Madara for your parents are a bit hungama Kumara biani Selena, it's a

01:37:12--> 01:37:14

short door, but try to learn and try to memorize it.

01:37:15--> 01:38:01

And you see over here, Allah subhanaw taala specifically mentions the struggle of the mother, the biological mother. And this shows us that is the biological mother that deserves you know, our gratitude, that thank you for carrying me thank you for giving birth to me, even if she didn't raise you, but the fact that she gave birth to you, you need that as enough. She She deserves gratitude from you. And Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning the struggle of the mother here. Why is so that people know, what pains the mother has, has taken in order to, you know, give birth to them. So this shows us that Yanni, as people, we should also teach children about the sacrifices that their

01:38:01--> 01:38:42

parents have made. Any parents are not supposed to, you know, remind their children that, oh, I did this, I did that for you, and you should be grateful to me. No, it's the job of other family members. It's the job of other relatives to help that, you know, children and their families recognize the effort and the sacrifice and the gifts of their parents. But unfortunately, a lot of times we are focused on making, you know, children turn against their own parents. But if they endeavor to make you associate with me, that of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them, but accompany them in this world with appropriate kindness and follow the way of those who turned back

01:38:42--> 01:39:26

to me in repentance, then to me will be your return and I will inform you about what you used to do. And look man said, Oh, my son, indeed, if wrong should be the way to have a mustard seed, and should be within Iraq or anywhere in the heavens or in the earth. Allah will bring it forth. Indeed, Allah is subtle and acquainted supanova in is something as small as a mustard seed. If it is somewhere in the darkness of the night, somewhere in the sky are in the earth. Allah subhanaw taala knows where it is, oh, Allah Subhana Allah knows what it is. Like we don't even know what is on our hands. If we're carrying a certain virus on our clothes on our hands on a certain surface, we have no idea and

01:39:26--> 01:39:40

Allah subhanaw taala knows about the tiniest things even. So realize Allah subhanaw taala has power. And this shows us that we should not do anything wrong even in privacy. That pride equal to a mustard seed even is not accepted.

01:39:42--> 01:39:59

So teach our children to fear alone, not you, or my son established prayer, enjoying what is right forbid what is wrong, and be patient over what befalls you. Indeed, Allah indeed all that, indeed, all that is of the matters requiring determination.

01:40:00--> 01:40:41

Do not turn your cheek in contempt toward people and do not walk through the earth exultantly. Indeed, Allah does not like everyone self, deluded and boastful. So be moderate, not arrogant. Don't swagger. Even if you think you're the biggest gangster on the on the planet still walk with dignity and calmness, and the Prophet sallallahu Urdu Sena would walk in a way that would show he was neither weak nor was he lazy, nor arrogant. And the Prophet sallallahu earlier said that Allah has revealed to me that you must be humble, so that no one oppresses another or boasts over another. And look, mindset. Be moderate in your pace, and lower your voice meaning Don't yell. Indeed, the most

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

disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys. So your speed in walk and talk should be moderate, not hasty or arrogant, walk with dignity and calmness and talk in the same way. And these verses we learn about some very important you know, etiquette or or tips rather, of dealing with our children. Firstly, we learned about the importance of talking to your children, any have proper, deep conversations, serious conversations with your children. Don't think that the only thing you can tell your children is you know, sit here, go here, do this, eat this pick up your toys, do your homework, etc. have meaningful conversations with them. Look at the kinds of things that look man is

01:41:27--> 01:42:07

telling his son secondly, speak with love. Because look at how look man says yeah, buena Yamuna Yeah, oh my dear son, Oh my dear son. Then thirdly, the first thing we should build in our children we should teach our children is though hade that the Shrek Billa. This is the foundation. This is the first lesson that children need to learn and this is something that needs to begin very, very early. Then fourthly, teach them to thank Allah. And remember when you teach them to be grateful to Allah, Allah will teach them to thank you. Because initially when we validate this is from Allah, sometimes we complain our children are not grateful. Well, because maybe we have not taught them to

01:42:07--> 01:42:47

be grateful to Allah. And then we see continued to show love and more love because Look, man says yeah, Buddha Yeah, again and again. And then teach the facts right? Build the fear of Allah in them with love, then teach though he'd teach them a last point on his names, his attributes, because see, look, man says that even if there is something as small as the as a mustard seed, Allah subhanaw taala knows about it. So teach them about Allah and His attributes, and then teach them rules. Teach them the things that they have to do. Pray Salah, teach them responsibility command, what is right forbid what is wrong, teach them resilience. Be patient over what strikes you teach them why,

01:42:47--> 01:43:28

because in the Valiquette mannerisms or mood this is something very, very important for life. Teach them good manners, teach them respect and courtesy will add to the calmness don't don't turn your cheek to people and don't walk in the earth proudly and teach them why not because people will think you're weird, but because Allah subhanaw taala does not like such people. And then teach them calmness to be deliberate to be mindful works with FEMA schicke. Teach them composure, that they should not be noisy, and teach them the ability to take less than from what they see. Because see, look, man says in uncle Swati la SoTL honey, that the worst sound is that of the donkey, and teach

01:43:28--> 01:44:10

all of this with hikma with wisdom, not just beautiful, flowery words, not that you make them sit down and then lecture them. But teach them with your action with your own wisdom because wisdom is the ability to put knowledge into action. So it is not just with your words that you teach your children, teach them with a practical demonstration Also, do you not see that Allah has made subject to you, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, meaning for your benefit, and amply bestowed upon you His favor is both apparent and an apparent blessings you see and blessings that you don't even see blessings that are tangible and intangible material in material blessings that

01:44:10--> 01:44:20

you don't even realize he has amply bestowed upon you, but of the people as he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening book from him.

01:44:21--> 01:44:59

And when it is said to them follow what Allah has revealed. They say rather, we will follow that upon which we found our fathers, even if shaitan was inviting them to the punishment of the Blaze, and whoever submits his face to Allah, while he is a doer of good that he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold surrender to Allah, and also do good, then a person has grasped the most trustworthy handhold and to Allah Who will be the outcome of all matters, and whoever has disbelieved. Let not his disbelief grieve you to us as they're returned, and we will inform them of what they did. Indeed, Allah is

01:45:00--> 01:45:46

Knowing of that within the chests, we grant them enjoyment for a little than we will force them to a massive punishment. And if you ask them who created the heavens and earth, they would surely say Allah say all praises due to Allah, but most of them do not know, to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and earth. Indeed, Allah is the free of need the Praiseworthy, and if whatever trees upon the earth were pens, and the sea was ink replenished thereafter, by seven more seas, the words of Allah would not be exhausted. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. The fact is, that we could never praise Allah enough. Your creation and your resurrection will not be but as that of a

01:45:46--> 01:46:32

single soul, It is that easy upon Allah. Indeed, Allah is hearing and seeing, do you not see that Allah causes the night to enter the day, and causes the day to enter the night and has subjected the sun and the moon, each running its course for a specified term, and that Allah with whatever you do, is acquainted. That is because Allah is the truth. Any Allah does that because he is the truth, he is truly God. And that what they call upon other than Him is false hood. And because Allah is the Most High, the grand, do you not see the ships sail through the sea by the favor of Allah, that he may show you of His signs, indeed, and that are Signs for everyone patient and grateful. And really,

01:46:32--> 01:47:17

when you're at sea, when you're in the middle of the, you know, when you're surrounded by water, you really learn what subud and sugar is, and the importance of salt and sugar. because things are scary. They're not always according to plan. So you need that patience, and then you appreciate every blessing that that you have. So teachers You should also and when waves come over them like canopies, they supplicate Allah sincere to him in religion, but when he delivers them to the land, there are some of them who are moderate in faith, and non rejects our signs except everyone treacherous and ungrateful. All Mankind, fear your Lord and fear a Day when no father will avail his

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

son, nor will a son avail his father at all, indeed the promise of a lies truth. Select not the worldly life delude you, and Be not deceived about Allah by the deceiver, and that deceiver is shaytaan Don't let him put thoughts and doubts in your, in your head about Allah subhanaw taala that you begin to despair and you detach yourself from Allah. Indeed, Allah alone has knowledge of the hour, and sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. And no soul perceives what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul perceives in what land it will die. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and acquainted in nulla highly mon hobbies suited to such that

01:48:03--> 01:48:46

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite surah two such that before going to sleep. And he would also recite this in his fudger prayer on Friday. And this is something that should encourage us to memorize the suta also, and recited in Salah. And if you start reciting it at night, and at least if you begin by listening to it, then inshallah over time, you'll be able to memorize it and once you've memorized it, you'll be able to follow the Sunnah. How beautiful Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, la flamme meme, this is the revelation of the Book about which there is no doubt from the Lord of the worlds or do they say he invented it. Rather, it is the truth from your Lord,

01:48:46--> 01:49:33

that You may warn people to whom no warner has come before you. So perhaps they will be guided. It is Allah who created the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between them in six days. Then he established Himself above the Throne, you have not besides Him, any protector or any intercessor So will you not be reminded? He arranges each matter from the heaven to the earth, any all the way from above, to all the way down any there is nothing that happens except that Allah subhanaw taala has arranged it, then it will ascend to him in a day the extent of witches 1000 years of those which you count, that is the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, the Exalted in Might, the Merciful. So

01:49:33--> 01:49:59

remember the angels, they carry out the commands of Allah, but then they also take up those reports back to Allah, even though a loss pantile already knows. And if we were to try to cover that distance between earth and the sky and try to reach that place where the angels go, it will take us 1000 years, we wouldn't be able to. And that just shows us how massive how expansive the skies are. That is the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed the

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

Exalted in Might, the Merciful, who perfected everything which he created and began the creation of man from clay. Then he made his posterity, meaning his children out of the extract of a liquid disdained that he proportioned him and breathed into him from his creative soul and made for you hearing and vision and hearts. Little are you grateful sopran Allah, the ability to hear the ability to see the ability to comprehend, you know, whether it is with the eyes that a person sees, or with their mind, they're able to visualize are able to fully understand a reality, Kenny, and the heart, feelings that we have this these are huge blessings, because there are people who have these

01:50:49--> 01:51:32

faculties but they fail to benefit from them. And there are people who are not able to see and hear, but it's upon Allah, their soul, you know, they're able to accept the truth and bring so much benefit. So karela matters Kuru little are you grateful? Vinnie, this shows us that we should really take our faculties whatever that allows portada has endowed us with as a blessing from Allah, we should not take them for granted. And we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to preserve these for us Alomar alfine fieberbrunn. He in the morning and in the evening, Alomar alfine fee summary Alomar off and up basa de la Ilaha. Illa, anta that O Allah, protect me in my body, keep my body safe, keep

01:51:32--> 01:51:36

my hearing and my vision safe. There is no god worthy of worship except you.

01:51:37--> 01:52:18

And sugar. gratitude for these blessings means that we use them in the right way. So what is it that we're listening to? What is it that we're looking at? And how are we looking at things? And they say, when we are lost within the earth, will we indeed be recreated in a new creation. Rather they are in the matter of the meeting with their Lord disbelievers. Say, the Angel of Death will take you who has been entrusted with you than to your Lord, He will be returned. So remember, the time of our death is also fixed, if you could But see, when the criminals are hanging their heads before their Lord saying, Our Lord, we have seen and heard so return us to the world, we will work righteousness.

01:52:18--> 01:53:03

Indeed, we are now certain. And if we had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, meaning every single person could have been forced to accept guidance. But the word for me will come into effect that I will surely fill Hell with gin, and people all together stuff in a law. So taste the punishment, because you forgot the meeting of this your day. Indeed, we have accordingly forgotten you and taste the punishment of eternity for what you use to do. Only those believe in our verses who, when they are reminded by them, fall down in prostration and exalt Allah with praise of their Lord, and they are not arrogant. These are the true believers, those who truly believe in the

01:53:03--> 01:53:52

Quran. In the verses of Allah, what that when they are reminded of the verses of Allah, they fall down in prostration. They become humble, and they glorify and praise the Lord. They're not arrogant. We learned that anytime the Prophet sallallahu wasallam heard something or received something that caused him pleasure, any which made him glad he would make such the to Allah, out of gratitude, and really sometimes learning and I have the Quran that brings you joy, that nothing else can. So when you learn something beautiful at that time also makes such the to Allah fall down in frustration to Allah such that the sugar, they arise from their beds, they supplicate their Lord in fear and

01:53:52--> 01:54:33

aspiration, and from what We have provided them they spend, this is the sign of who the people who truly believe in the verses of Allah, that they don't stay sleeping all night long. No, they're not just concerned about their physical comfort. They also make time to worship Allah subhanaw taala so even though the bed is there, but still they make time to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. You know, had these we learned that there are three people whom Allah subhanaw taala loves, he loves because of them, and he rejoices over them, who the first is He who lost his group his battalion. But

01:54:37--> 01:54:59

the first is He who lost his battalion but continues to fight by himself for the sake of Allah. And either he is killed or Allah grants him victory and suffices him. So loss puntata says look at my servant, how he has made himself patient for my sake, meaning he could have given up but he doesn't give up he has not given up he was patient for my sake. Secondly, the man

01:55:00--> 01:55:37

Who has a beautiful wife, and a soft, comfortable, good bed. But what does he do? He leaves his bed and he goes to worship Allah. So Allah says, he leaves his desire and remembers me and talks to me, fired qurani where you now Genie, and if you wanted, he could have slept. And the third is the person who is on a journey with a group of people who have all fallen asleep because of the exhaustion of the journey. But he stands in prayer that sounds in ease and in hardship. So people who do that that Allah subhanaw taala he loves them. allama Dr. Lemon home,

01:55:38--> 01:56:23

and no soul knows what has been hidden for them of comfort for eyes as reward for what they used to do. Meaning when a person worships the last panel, tada in secret, with consistency through ease, and through hardship, and the sacrifice their desire, and their comfort, to worship Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala will give them a reward that is unknown to anyone but Allah Subhana Allah, meaning that reward is also a secret, you know, with Allah, because they kept their deeds secret, Allah has got that reward secret. So this person will only find out what that reward is, once they enter Jannah along with them at home. And we learn in our head these, that last panel Tara has said,

01:56:23--> 01:56:43

that I have prepared for my pious servants which no AI has ever seen, no ear has ever heard, no human heart has ever perceived. But it is mentioned in the Book of Allah has testified in the Prophet sallallahu where it is the number cited this via we don't know how these that most artists that I'm asked is Lord, that who amongst the inhabitants of Paradise has the lowest in rank.

01:56:44--> 01:57:23

And Allah subhanaw taala said, the person who would be admitted into paradise last of all among those deserving of Paradise were admitted to it, it would be set to him enter Jannah and that person will say y'all up, how should I enter? Well, the people have settled in their homes and taken the shares meaning Where do I go and gentlemen, it's all occupied. So it will be set to him, would you be pleased if there is for you, like the kingdom of a king amongst the kings of the world. So he will say I am pleased with that, my lord. So last month, I will say for you is that and like that and like that and like that and that. So when Allah hunter will say that, the fifth time, the person

01:57:23--> 01:58:07

will say, I am pleased My Lord. So Allah will say it is for you and 10 times like it and for you is what your soul desires and your eye enjoys. So the person who will say that will lead to rugby My Lord, I am pleased. So we'll start he said I'm sad. He wondered then that which is the highest other inhabitants of Paradise, Yanni, if this is the case with the person with the lowest rank of john in Jannah, then what about the person who has the highest rank and Jenna so last panel, Donna said they are those whom I choose to Karama to whom via D, I have planted their honorable homes with my own hand, and then I have set a seal over it. So that it has which no eye has seen, no ear has heard,

01:58:07--> 01:58:52

and no human mind has perceived. Because you see, sometimes certain things end just because something has been seen, it becomes you know stayed, right it's it's no longer special. So these rewards are even more special because no AI has even seen it. So to reach these levels, we have to sacrifice the sleep of the night and spend of our money also. And we have to ask Allah subhanaw taala Allah my news article, Jenna, all I asked you for Jenna, and I had these we learn when a person makes the offer agenda three times then even Jenna intercedes for him, that allows them to feel who or Allah admit him. So Allahumma in the local Jenna Allahumma in the local Jenna Allahumma

01:58:52--> 01:59:35

in the local Jana, then is one who was a believer, like one who was defiantly disobedient, they're not equal, as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, for them will be the gardens of refuge as accommodation for what they used to do. But as for those who defiantly disobeyed their refuges the fire, every time they wish to emerge from it, they will be returned to it, while it is set to them, taste the punishment of the Fire, which you used to deny, and we will surely let them taste the nearer punishment short of the greater punishment meaning we will let them suffer in the world. Why? that perhaps they will repent. So difficulties are meant to take us towards doba and who is

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

more unjust than one who is reminded of the verses of his Lord, but then he turns away from them. Indeed, we from the criminals will take retribution. And we certainly give most of the Scripture so do not be in doubt over his meeting. And we made the total guidance for the children of Israel he and we made from among them, leaders, guided by our command when they were patient.

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

Subhan Allah, a leader is only able to lead when they have sub. And when they were certain of our signs when they have been in the promises of Allah. So these two qualities are essential, whether it is that you want to lead your family, your children, or people that you're working with, you must have Subbu you must have patience, and you must have your clean your conviction in the promises of Allah subhanaw taala indeed your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection, concerning that over which they used to differ, has it not become clear to them? How many generations we destroyed before them as they walk among their dwellings? Indeed, and that are signs, then do they

02:00:40--> 02:01:09

not here have not seen that we drive the water in clouds to barren land, and bring forth their by crops from which their livestock eat and they themselves can do the Nazi? And they say, when will this conquest if when will be this conquest if you should be truthful? Say on the day of conquest, the belief of those who had disbelieved will not benefit them, nor will they be reprieved, so turn away from them and wait, indeed, they are waiting.

02:01:10--> 02:01:59

pseudo Bismillahirrahmanirrahim Rahim. Yeah, uh, you Hanegbi you all Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is never addressed in the Quran by his name. Allah subhanaw taala always addresses him in the Quran with one of his titles. Yeah, are you gonna be you when it comes to the other prophets? We see? Yeah, Adam. Yeah, no. Yeah. Ibrahim yeah Moosa. Yeah. Isa, yeah, Zachary. Here, any profits are addressed by name. But when it comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam His name is never mentioned. And in the sense that he's not he's never addressed with his name. He's always addressed with his title. And this actually is a lesson

02:01:59--> 02:02:41

for us. That when we talk about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We should talk about him in the most respectful way. Allah is teaching us this etiquette. So Oh Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fear Allah, how much more than we need to fear Allah, and do not obey the disbelievers and the hypocrites. Meaning don't succumb to their pressure, just because they want you to do things their way. Don't listen to them, Fear Allah, and do what Allah has commanded you to do. Indeed, Allah is Ever knowing, and wise. And the same lesson is for us, that the people who, who tell us to do things differently from what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded them, no matter how much they

02:02:41--> 02:03:27

insist, and no matter how much they, you know, pressurize us, don't succumb to their pressures, and follow that which is revealed to you from your Lord. Indeed, Allah is Ever with what you do, acquainted with our color, Allah, Allah and rely upon Allah and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. Allah has not made for a man to hearts in his interior, you only have one heart in your body. And he has not made your wives whom you declare unlawful, your mother's meaning either this woman is your wife, any she's your wife, she cannot be your mother, meaning a wife is a wife, and a mother is a mother. Don't confuse between the two. Give your wife her right, and give your mother

02:03:27--> 02:04:07

her right. A lot of men think it's either my wife or my mother. No, it's not that competition. You keep your wife at the at her place, and you keep your mother at her place. And when you give your mother her right, and when you give your wife her right, then there will be no conflict. So a lot of times this conflict between, you know, the mother in law and the daughter in law, why is that? So? It's because men don't know how to balance or or how to give, you know, their mother what they deserve, and their wife what she deserves. So it's important that men take this matter seriously. Any hear a clear distinction has been made, that your wife is not your mother. And yes, this is

02:04:07--> 02:04:49

about a certain context where the Arabs would, you know, it was a form of divorce, that a man would say to his wife that you are like my mother. So it has made clear here that she cannot be your mother, she is not your mother. And he has not made your adopted sons, your true sons. That is merely you're saying by your mounts, and you're saying does not change any reality. But Allah says the truth, and he guides to the right way, will do rumely Abba, he him, call them by the names of their fathers, meaning if you have adopted a child, then don't give them your own surname. Let that child know who his real biological father is. It is more just in the sight of Allah This is fair,

02:04:49--> 02:04:59

but if you do not know their fathers, then they're still your brothers and religion and those entrusted to you. And there is no blame upon you for that in which you have erred but only for what your heart's

02:05:00--> 02:05:39

intended And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. So Allah will forgive the past mistakes, if you correct your present state. And we learn something very important here, that adoption, meaning adopting a child raising the child as your own. And he This is something beautiful this is something excellent. But in that process, a child's real identity should not be changed. Meaning a child should be known by their parents in the sense that they should take their last name. Don't give them someone else's last name. And this is a major sin. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said himself that he who claimed for another person, one is sorry, he who claimed for another one, his fatherhood

02:05:39--> 02:06:20

besides his own father, knowingly, then Paradise is forbidden to him. If a person does this deliberately takes on the name of someone who is not their father, than Jenna is held on upon them. Sometimes truth hurts any you don't want to hurt those children by saying that, you know, I'm not your real dad. Your real dad was actually such and such person or we don't even know about him. We don't even know if he's alive, etc. truth hurts. But you know what, it is really the only thing that brings comfort. So if you love the children that you've adopted, that you are raising as your own, don't hide the truth from them. And maybe you owe labile meaning I mean, unfussy him, the prophet is

02:06:20--> 02:07:01

more worthy of the believers than themselves. You see, what is the invitation of the knifes of the desire and the other is the invitation of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the knifes insist that we do evil, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam instructed us to do what is best. So even when his teachings go against the knifes, what should we do obey the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam because he is more worthy than our own knifes. He is more deserving, because what He will teach us is better for us than what we can come up with for ourselves. And his wives are in the position of their mothers and those of blood relationship are more entitled to inheritance in the

02:07:01--> 02:07:42

decree of Allah than the other believers and the immigrants, except that you may except that you may do to your close associates a kindness that was in the book inscribed, meaning Allah subhanaw taala has decided who your relatives are, and they have certain rights upon you and you cannot change those. But let's say you have certain religious friends who are not relatives and you want to be good to them, you want to leave them some of your estate, you're allowed to do that through we'll see you right which is up to a third of your wealth maximum. But any you cannot change the law of Allah, just because of how you feel about certain people. And mentioned when we took from the

02:07:42--> 02:08:23

prophets, their covenant and from you meeting Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and from New and Ibrahim and Moosa and Risa, the son of Miriam and we took from them his solemn covenant, that he may question the truthful about their truthful, and he has prepared for the disbelievers a painful punishment, or you will have believed, remember the favor of Allah upon you, when armies came to attack you and we sent upon them a wind and armies to counter to counter them, which you do not wish you did not see why, how did you not see them because they were angels, and ever is a lot of what you do seeing this is referring to the Battle of hundreds, or the Battle of trench, which is also

02:08:23--> 02:09:07

known as the Battle of a hub. Why is it called a hub because different have different groups of people from different areas came together to fight the Muslims, it was an army of 10,000 people. And they, they basically joined their forces together against Muslims. So it is said here remember, when they came at you from above you meaning from the north and from below you from the south also. And when I shifted in fear, you were terrified that what are you going to do? And hearts reached the throats? And you assumed about Allah various assumptions? What were you thinking this was truly a test. There, the believers were tested and shaken with the severe shaking. And sometimes this

02:09:07--> 02:09:19

happens, that we see the difficulty or the trial approaching us from every direction, and the heart is turning about in extreme fear and anxiety. So what is it that we think about Allah at that time?

02:09:20--> 02:10:00

And remember, when the hypocrites and those whose hearts is disease said, Allah and His Messenger did not promise us except delusion. This is hypocrisy, that in difficulty, a hypocrite thinks that Allah's promise was nothing. This was only a delusion. Now I'm going to suffer. And when a faction of them said oh people have yesterday there is no stability for you. So return home, and a party of them asked permission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, indeed our houses are unprotected. While they were not exposed. They did not intend except to flee, meaning they actually did not want to participate in the battle. So they came up with these excuses. So we see here that

02:10:00--> 02:10:38

The hypocrites at this difficult time were more concerned about themselves. And their fear kind of overcame them. So they were thinking about, so they were thinking of ways to escape to avoid difficulty. They didn't care about anybody else. They only cared about themselves. And if they had been entered upon from all its surrounding regions, and fitna had been demanded of them, meaning if they were asked to betray the Muslims, then what would they do, they would have done it and not hesitated over it, except briefly, why because their loyalties are not really with you. And there are some people like this were only out to benefit themselves, they don't care about anybody else.

02:10:39--> 02:11:24

And they had already promised Allah before not to turn their backs and flee And ever is a promise to Allah, that about which one will be questioned, say, never will flee and benefit you, if you should flee from death or killing. And then if you did, you would not be given enjoyment of life except for a little. So remember, there is absolutely no escape from death, a person cannot avoid death, it is certain, any, it's going to happen one way or another, and men because it gives, you know, a beautiful comparison through a story, that the example of a person is like, you know, someone who is being chased by a lion. So this person finds a well, and he jumps into it in order to save himself.

02:11:25--> 02:12:05

So there's a rope, and he's hanging by that rope. And at the bottom of the well, there are other creatures like snakes or something. And then what happens the lion is now sitting at the mouth of the well. But that rope is being eaten by mice. So you see what's happening, any one way or another, the person will die. And this person, what he does, is in the well, that he starts eating honey, because he finds a honeycomb over there. So this is what happens with us. We know death is coming. Yet we fall into just you know, pleasing ourselves in those few moments that we have. And our entire entire concern is about escaping death. Right? We think we're running away from death, but we're not

02:12:05--> 02:12:52

actually running away from death, death is going to come to us we are going to die. So it is said, Who is it that can protect you from Allah, if he intends for you and ill or intends for you a mercy and they will not find for themselves besides Allah, any protector or any helper already, Allah knows the hinders among you. And those hypocrites who say to their brothers come to us and do not go to battle, except for a few. So yes, there are people who will avoid you know such situations. And then they will also discourage others who don't do good themselves. And they also discourage other people from doing good. And this is from hypocrisy. indisposed toward you, they really don't care

02:12:52--> 02:13:33

about you. And when fear comes, you see them looking at you, their eyes revolving like one being overcome by death. But when fear departs, they lash you with sharp tongues in disposed toward any good, meaning they really don't care about you. They get overwhelmed by fear. And then when things are back to normal, they're extremely rude and harsh toward you. Why? Because they want to get benefit out of you, those who have not believed so Allah has rendered their deeds worthless, and never is that for Allah easy. They think the companies have not yet withdrawn because eventually they have left. But the hypocrites we're still living in so much fear, because the one who does not

02:13:33--> 02:14:21

fear Allah, then he fears people a lot. And if the companies should come again, they would wish they were in the desert among the Bedouins inquiring from afar about your news. And if they should be among you, they would not fight except for a little. So remember, a hypocrite does not care about other people. a hypocrite is only concerned about themselves, they're selfish. This is what differentiates a believer from a hypocrite, the Prophet sallallahu where it is, and I've described the believers as what as one body, as a building, such that you know, each each brick is coming together with the other brick in order to any make a solid, firm structure, right and a single body

02:14:21--> 02:14:59

such that if one part of it hurts, the entire body feels the pain. So this is how the believers are supposed to be not selfish. There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah, an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and to remember is Allah often you see, the current situation that we are in Yes, this was completely any out of nowhere we could have never imagined and we don't really have anything to look back into our own lives to compare it to right or or anything in recent history. But

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

When we look into the life of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, we will find a lesson for every single situation that we find ourselves in. Yes, we are suffering from financial crisis, we are suffering from fear, we don't know from from where we could get hurt and harmed, we don't know. And the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sent a multi experience that wasn't the Battle of his ad like that the Muslims were surrounded by enemies. And this, you know, basically the dad came and laid a siege for an entire month. And it was extremely cold, there was no food supplies going in or out, the Muslims were constantly guarding the trench. And then there were people amongst you know, the the

02:15:39--> 02:16:20

anokhi tap the Jews who lived in Medina who basically betrayed the Muslims. So the Muslims were surrounded by danger, living in extreme fear, day in and day out, they had to exert so much effort to defend themselves. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam survived that. So if we want to know how to survive, how to go through difficulty in our lives, we must look at the beautiful example of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam. And this is why we must take him as a role model and follow Him in every matter, not just in Salah, and in the cart and in South Africa, but also in how we speak to one another, how we respond to different situations. And when the believers saw the

02:16:20--> 02:16:54

companies, they said, This is what Allah and His Messenger had promised us, and align His Messenger spoke the truth, and it increased them only in faith and acceptance. Earlier, the hypocrites were mentioned here, the response of the believers has mentioned that when the believers see a difficulty, they don't say, Why did this happen? They said, this is exactly what Allah and His Messenger had promised, as we were told about this, that life is meant to be difficult. Life is meant to have trials. And we go through these trials, by learning from what the Quran teaches us. And, and by looking at the example of Rasulullah sallallahu. Early he was suddenly among the

02:16:54--> 02:17:32

believers are men, true to what they promised Allah among them is He who has fulfilled his vow and among them as he who awaits his chance, and they did not alter the terms of their commitment by alteration, the thing is that we you know, we come up with this with these great intentions that your Allah, I will do this for you, and I will do that for you. And then one last point on it puts us in difficulty. That is, when we're being tested, are we going to be true to the promise we made to Allah or are we going to break it, though, that allowed me to reward the truthful for their truth, and punish the hypocrites if he wills or accept their repentance? Indeed, Allah is Ever

02:17:32--> 02:18:11

Forgiving and Merciful. See what he said about the hypocrites, Allah may accept their repentance. So never ever judge yourself or anybody that their tobei is not going to be accepted. Always be willing to repent to Allah and encourage people to repent to Allah. And Allah repel those who disbelieved in their rage, they came to harm the Muslims, but they ended up harming themselves, not having obtained any good and sufficient was Allah for the believers in battle, and ever is Allah powerful and Exalted in Might. And he brought down those who supported them among the People of the Scripture from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts, so that a party you killed and you took

02:18:11--> 02:18:49

captive, a party, this was the bundle canela, who betrayed the Muslims at this time, and the detail of this is another suitor that is coming up, and he calls you to inherit their land and their homes and their properties and the land, which you have not tried and, and ever is Allah over all things competent. So we see the greater problems at times bring you greater victory. So don't resent the difficulty, celebrate the victories that are coming up. Oh, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say to your wives, if you should desire the worldly life, and its adornment, then come, I will provide for you and give you a gracious release. But if you should desire Allah and His messenger and the

02:18:49--> 02:19:24

home of the Hereafter, then Indeed Allah has prepared for the doers of good among you, a great reward. So we learned that the wives of the prophets of Allah who already sent him at one point, they demanded a lot of money from him. So they were given this option, so that if you want to learn the home of the Hereafter, if you want Allah, His Messenger, the home of the Hereafter, then you have to make some sacrifices here. And if that is not your goal, your goal is worldly things, then you cannot be with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So what do you think they chose? The Prophet sallallahu radiocentre went to it Chateau de la Mourinho and recited this ayah before her

02:19:24--> 02:19:59

and told her to consult her parents first before making a decision. And she said, Why would I need to consult my parents I choose Allah, His Messenger, the home of the hereafter. Yeah, nissa unabie or wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whoever of you should commit a clear immorality, for her the punishment would be doubled to fold and ever is that for Allah easy. So remember, when the honor is great than responsibility is also great. And of course the reward is also great. So when Allah subhanaw taala has blessed you with a certain privilege.

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

Even if it's beneficial knowledge, then take that matter seriously and strive to the best of your ability and expect the best from Allah subhanho wa Taala inshallah we'll conclude over here so pentacle, lahoma behenic. A shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta as the Furukawa to Lake wa salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh barakato

02:20:32--> 02:20:43

would you be let him initiate en rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Alhamdulillah my last candle enable all of us to implement what you have learned is ocular her sister Tamia

02:20:44--> 02:20:49

students. I'm going to inshallah, enable your chat. And let's have a quick review.

02:20:51--> 02:21:03

Now Hello, cellular Sunil Karim and my bad phone will be lagging the shavon urging Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Rubbish roughly said there Yes Really? Emily 100 of the Tamil is any of the Hokulea

02:21:10--> 02:21:13

Okay, so 100 Allah we are on June 21.

02:21:45--> 02:21:58

So I marry one of most interesting students in our lesson today was to look man, so let's take a look at two of those if shuttler.

02:21:59--> 02:22:02

Okay, so so little of mine, and number 12.

02:22:04--> 02:22:37

And we had certainly given Lockman wisdom and says Be grateful to Allah, and whoever is grateful is grateful for the benefit of himself. And whoever denies his favor, then Indeed, Allah is free of need and praiseworthy. Okay, so we see that last month, says he had given lachemann A Salaam wisdom, and we see his wise words. Alright, so let's take a look at what is this exactly? Okay. So what is wisdom? Is there a difference between wisdom and knowledge?

02:22:40--> 02:22:43

Yes. So knowledge

02:22:44--> 02:23:04

is information of which someone is aware, right? So from their love, we're gaining knowledge every day that we come to class. Yes, wisdom is applying it. Knowledge is also use to mean the confident understanding of a subject, potentially with the ability to use it for a specific purpose.

02:23:06--> 02:23:41

And then wisdom is the ability to make correct judgments and decisions. It is an intangible quality gain through our experiences in life. Right, Mashallah. All of your comments are correct. So what is wisdom is the ability to reach the level of excellence by acquiring knowledge and having the ability to act accordingly as well. Right so Allah, Allah spent, Allah has given us the chance to acquire knowledge now, what would be the wisdom for everything that we've been learning for the past 21 days?

02:23:44--> 02:23:54

Yes, knowledge is informational. Wisdom is transformational. Very good. Yeah, implement it. Right. So what would be wisdom during class?

02:23:57--> 02:24:00

What would be the wise thing to do during class?

02:24:02--> 02:24:04

Of course, use common sense. Yes. True.

02:24:06--> 02:24:08

listened attentively. Yes. Take notes.

02:24:12--> 02:24:15

Yes, listen carefully and take notes.

02:24:16--> 02:24:23

If not, then SubhanAllah. Yeah, note some action points. Wisdom gets polished with the combination of knowledge.

02:24:24--> 02:24:25

Okay.

02:24:28--> 02:24:52

Yes, share it with others. So you don't forget, make the intention to act upon it. Practice and yes, let your family know as well. Take notes to implement. Right. So imagine that we've all been coming. Right? And if someone is distracted at that time, or they're not really paying attention, it's just playing it as background sound. Right then that's not wisdom.

02:24:53--> 02:24:55

Right that might not even be knowledge spot.

02:24:57--> 02:24:59

Yeah, reflect on ourselves. Spread out.

02:25:00--> 02:25:10

On the good words of a les panthella, right? Okay, so like one of you has already typed Mashallah wisdom is to use the right thing at the right time in the right way.

02:25:12--> 02:25:23

So if we are in class, then Alhamdulillah, we need to take that opportunity during that time and each other use it in the correct way. So, this applies to everything.

02:25:26--> 02:25:29

So, some other ways wisdom

02:25:30--> 02:25:42

shows up in our life. So, knowledge speaks, but wisdom, what does it say it listens. So, why is people if you've met someone wise, do they talk a lot?

02:25:45--> 02:25:46

No, so

02:25:48--> 02:25:55

they speak when needed, but usually they're quiet. Yes, they're thinking.

02:25:56--> 02:26:07

Right. And people who have just learned something, right. And perhaps they're even boastful about it. What do they do?

02:26:11--> 02:26:14

Yeah, they listen to everything was speak less, right. That wasn't wisdom.

02:26:15--> 02:26:18

Yes, exactly. They give advice and observe a lot.

02:26:21--> 02:26:34

Yes. talk talk talk, right? Those who just have information. And Subhanallah are a little bit boastful as well. Yes. Like empty vessels make the most noise?

02:26:35--> 02:26:59

Yeah, Action Point. We're not you're not our tongue. Yes. So something to think about. Right? judge ourselves? Do I do a lot of talking? I might just like, going on and on and on and on. Right. And so probably like, even when we're advising people, sometimes we just talk, talk, talk, talk talk. What happens when someone gives you a long lecture, because of one little thing you've done wrong?

02:27:00--> 02:27:02

How much attention do we pay?

02:27:03--> 02:27:05

Yeah, it's very tiring. So

02:27:06--> 02:27:10

yes, we get bored. Yes, we don't pay any attention.

02:27:12--> 02:27:47

Yes, we tune them out. Right. So if we are parents, then we need to be careful, right? If we're giving our kids long lectures on everything, believe me, they're not listening, as we all know. Right. So then we need to use wisdom. Yes, we lose the essence we tune them out. We get irritated. Yes, we just like it right. You're tired. So we need to use wisdom. Speak less. Right? Speak to the point, pick up the Sunnah of the Prophet Salaam Salaam, ah, this Hadith of the profits or loss of them? Are they really, really long are the pages and pages?

02:27:48--> 02:28:19

No, right? They're very short, very concise. Yes. Imagine if there were very long, it would be so hard to read them, right? Because then it would be like reading a book every time. Exactly. They're short and sweet. Alright, so let's pick that up. So knowledge is knowing what to say wisdom is knowing whether to or not whether or not to say it. Right. So sometimes we have the perfect thing to say. But sometimes if we say it, it causes a bigger problem.

02:28:21--> 02:28:30

Right? So just because we know something, it doesn't mean we have to say it at that time. Right? We need to be wise and judge is this the right time or not?

02:28:34--> 02:28:52

So just because I know the answer to something doesn't mean I have to say that that time. Yes. Think before you speak. And yeah, of course, actions speak louder than words. True. So another point about wisdom. Knowledge is knowing tomato is a fruit. Right? So scientifically,

02:28:54--> 02:29:00

a tomato is classified as a fruit. Right? But wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

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

So yes, scientifically, it comes under a fruit a tomato. But how many of us put that in our fruit chat?

02:29:13--> 02:29:18

No One No One says I'm putting tomatoes with my bananas and my grapes, right?

02:29:21--> 02:29:33

Yes, so this is the wisdom right? So just because we know scientifically it's a fruit. It doesn't mean we go and use it as we use our apples or bananas.

02:29:34--> 02:29:35

You forecast

02:29:37--> 02:29:49

Okay, and knowledge is to learn something every day girl hamdulillah. So we are learning every single day. But wisdom is to remove something every day.

02:29:50--> 02:29:55

Right? So wisdom is to remove something every day. So what is it that we should be removing?

02:30:00--> 02:30:03

Yeah, bad habits exactly my shut up point on

02:30:04--> 02:30:20

mistakes, bad manners, bad feelings for others sins, toxic behaviors, obstacles, things that are not useful Mashallah Baraka. Exactly right. forgiving others, removing grudges,

02:30:21--> 02:30:22

mental clutter.

02:30:25--> 02:30:35

distractions, right. So if we have not removed anything from our life, then somehow that means our knowledge isn't benefiting us, right?

02:30:36--> 02:30:40

Knowledge benefits us. Only if we use it in the right way.

02:30:41--> 02:30:47

Yeah, stop dwelling in the past worrying about the future. Yes. laffel Hadees.

02:30:48--> 02:31:01

It's all 100 that we know, because we've been learning, but now wisdom is to implement it. Yeah, remove all the trashy things in us. And so we've already studied this door.

02:31:02--> 02:31:23

But just a reminder that this was made by Ibrahim Ali Salaam, right. And he was asking for wisdom, right, Robbie Hubley. Come on, well, his name is Salim. So just this part can be decided just the beginning part. Or if someone would like them, they can inshallah, add the rest of it as well.

02:31:24--> 02:31:28

So this is found in sort of the shorter I number add.

02:31:29--> 02:31:30

So we see that

02:31:31--> 02:31:36

he asked for wisdom and to be relaxed, united with the righteous

02:31:37--> 02:31:45

wisdom. So Pinilla will only take you towards the right path, right? And it'll take you and it will unite you with those who are righteous.

02:31:48--> 02:31:58

So this is a very short, Dwyer if you just remember the beginning of it, so inshallah everyone can make a note of that. Kamala spatola accepted from all of us.

02:32:00--> 02:32:06

So the next part of the i o was sugar, right? Look, my name is lamb advises son

02:32:07--> 02:32:17

to have sugar. Right. And so we've talked about this. So let's just make it very quick. Shout low. Sugar is acknowledging the blessing

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

and proclaiming the blessing. So two parts, right, so if we can't see the blessing, then we definitely cannot proclaim it.

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

So it is first to recognize it. Right? And so

02:32:35--> 02:32:38

if we can see it, then and only then can we be grateful for it.

02:32:40--> 02:32:54

Alright, so Alhamdulillah we've been going through the Quran for so many days, has our attitude changed at all? Are we more grateful in sha Allah for the little things and then definitely for the bigger things

02:32:55--> 02:33:05

Alhamdulillah so here it says God gave you a gift of 8000 86,400 seconds today.

02:33:06--> 02:33:09

Have you used one to say thank you.

02:33:10--> 02:33:13

So have how many seconds have we Subhanallah spent

02:33:15--> 02:33:26

thanking Allah Subhana Allah or even the people around us? That's true not complaining is also shaker Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah so when we look at it we have a lot of times Subhan Allah

02:33:30--> 02:33:33

tala The morning of car Yes, grateful for everything every time.

02:33:35--> 02:33:39

That's true. No matter how many times we say it is not enough.

02:33:41--> 02:33:45

So that's a lot of seconds that we have every single day Subhan Allah and then one day.

02:33:47--> 02:33:52

So highlight my last point that I forgive us all one day, we don't this timer runs out.

02:33:53--> 02:33:54

It just says zero.

02:33:56--> 02:33:58

All the other numbers are gone.

02:34:01--> 02:34:06

So let's use every second that Allah Allah has given us in the best way.

02:34:09--> 02:34:10

If we want mercy,

02:34:12--> 02:34:39

the unthankful heart discovers no mercies. But let the thankful heart sweep through the day and as the mat as a magnet finds the iron so it will find in every hour some heavenly blessing. So that ungrateful heart in doesn't see any mercy from Allah Subhana Allah in their in its life, right? But a thankful hearts upon Allah just like magnet

02:34:40--> 02:34:57

attracts iron. Right? Even if you put a magnet at a distance, if there's iron there, it will automatically move towards it right? And so just like that, a thankful heart is going to find something at least once hour a day. It's about Allah.

02:34:58--> 02:34:59

Yes, we're

02:35:00--> 02:35:07

grateful last $1 will increase this. That's true that of your family requires requires itself 100 or less.

02:35:09--> 02:35:25

Exactly. That's why we shouldn't take things for granted. Because then our heart dies. We don't notice anything anymore. Okay, so some things to think about. If wealth had been the secret to happiness, then the rich should be dancing on the streets.

02:35:26--> 02:35:36

But only poor kids do that height, do we see Subhanallah that the rich kids are on the streets and enjoying themselves.

02:35:38--> 02:35:43

All right. It's only the poor kids who come out and play,

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

reflect. If power ensures security, then officials should walk unguarded. But those whose lives simply sleep soundly.

02:35:58--> 02:36:03

Right, so people, there's a lot of people who are different powerful positions in the dunya.

02:36:04--> 02:36:07

But then, how many guards are around them?

02:36:08--> 02:36:15

Right? If they're going anywhere, first of all, the area has to be secured and then everyone who's going to be in that area has to be checked.

02:36:17--> 02:36:22

But then those who live simply they don't have any of these issues and

02:36:24--> 02:36:34

they just come home Go to sleep, no problem. And that powerful person is worried is my security guard there is the gate on the locks locks.

02:36:40--> 02:36:40

Yes.

02:36:42--> 02:36:52

Okay, and then ponder beauty and frame fame bring ideal relationships, then celebrities should have the best marriages.

02:36:55--> 02:36:56

Is this so in the dunya?

02:36:59--> 02:37:05

The most gossip comes from Subhanallah the lies of the celebrities? Yes.

02:37:07--> 02:37:08

So

02:37:09--> 02:37:11

these are not our goals?

02:37:14--> 02:37:17

Yes, no satisfaction because they don't have a less penalty.

02:37:20--> 02:37:25

Right. So some things to Subhanallah be grateful for five a simple life Alhamdulillah

02:37:26--> 02:37:28

I have so much to be grateful for.

02:37:31--> 02:37:41

So the benefits of sugar. Like we all I've already mentioned, there light increases the blessing. The Blessing is secured and there is reward.

02:37:45--> 02:37:57

Yes, definitely be grateful for what we have. Because it is enough, it is sufficient. But because we're not grateful. We don't notice upon what we have.

02:37:58--> 02:38:05

And then the end of the IRA said and whoever denies his favor, meaning whoever is ungrateful, whoever it is Cofer.

02:38:06--> 02:38:10

Alright, so one of the meanings of kufr is to be ungrateful.

02:38:12--> 02:38:20

Because someone who's doing Cofer is basically hiding the truth. So one of the truths that people hide is

02:38:21--> 02:38:26

all the blessings that they've been given. So, whoever denies

02:38:27--> 02:38:35

whatever is ungrateful, basically a lie is free of need and praiseworthy. So, alas, my God, he doesn't need our sugar

02:38:37--> 02:38:42

high but he's so generous that if we do sugar then Subhan Allah He increases us.

02:38:44--> 02:38:46

Yeah, exactly. We are in need of him.

02:38:48--> 02:38:51

That's true. Recognizing a blessing is a blessing itself.

02:38:54--> 02:38:58

Yes, we content less and less Division of Risk.

02:39:05--> 02:39:07

Okay, and then that was 12.

02:39:09--> 02:39:27

Let's look at number 19. Before we conclude, inshallah, it's a very interesting idea and be moderating your pace. Can we talked about walking yesterday, so we won't discuss that too much. And lower your voice? Indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of home.

02:39:31--> 02:39:36

Yes, good point. Pour grateful praise Allah more Subhan Allah. Yes, the donkey.

02:39:37--> 02:39:49

So the most disagreeable, disagreeable of sounds is the voice of down donkeys. Has anyone heard a donkey bring has very loud How is it pleasant?

02:39:52--> 02:39:54

Scary. Hello. Yeah.

02:39:56--> 02:39:59

It's very irritating, right? You just wanted to stop irritable.

02:40:00--> 02:40:11

Yes, so we need to keep a check on our voice. Our goal not to sound like a donkey. Right when someone gets really angry and start shouting.

02:40:12--> 02:40:14

This is what they sound like.

02:40:16--> 02:40:24

Have you ever heard anyone shout? get angry and Subhanallah just go on around at high pitch volume.

02:40:25--> 02:40:34

Now when you compare it to a donkey, isn't it the same upon Allah? It's irritating, it's hollow. It's loud. You want it to stop.

02:40:36--> 02:40:39

So how spot on the Quran?

02:40:41--> 02:40:43

Yes, very annoying.

02:40:44--> 02:40:48

Yeah, it's meaningless because no one's really listening. They just want you to be quiet.

02:40:50--> 02:41:03

So when you just stop shouting at other people, whether it's Subhan, Allah, our parents that were shouting at or children that were shouting at or our spouses, or siblings, whoever it is our neighbors.

02:41:06--> 02:41:10

Right, so yeah, the Quran covers everything. Subhan Allah.

02:41:11--> 02:41:21

So we need to be moderate. How we can get our point across without raising our voice. Exactly. We end up losing it Subhanallah

02:41:23--> 02:41:28

Yes, it's ineffective. Exactly. It's ineffective what we're saying at that time.

02:41:30--> 02:41:39

Right. So if we're shouting at a child, for example, all they're seeing is this scary person in front of them. They're not hearing what they're being told.

02:41:41--> 02:41:51

Right? And then when we're shouting at our parents upon Allah for Allah, then all our parents see is a disrespectful child. Again, they're not listening.

02:41:53--> 02:41:53

Yeah.

02:41:54--> 02:41:59

Actions speak louder than words. Very true. Our voice is also going to be questioned. Yes.

02:42:01--> 02:42:07

Yeah, everyone gets very immune very fast. Yes. Use it wisely. Very true. Use our voice wisely.

02:42:08--> 02:42:12

So people sound like donkeys while laughing as well. Yes. Very good point.

02:42:13--> 02:42:20

Very good point. So weather don't go to extremes either way, right when you're angry or when you're having fun.

02:42:22--> 02:42:31

Yes, soft tones are more understandable, very true. And they touched the heart and the person hearing it feels bad, right that they've done something wrong.

02:42:33--> 02:42:52

inshallah Yes, Vicar of Allah can help us from such situation. So saying out to be like him in a shape honor regime. It's a very short statement. I love it, but extremely, extremely powerful. So let's use this whenever we need it. So don't let che down. even enter.

02:42:53--> 02:42:56

Just swallow the close the door on him.
