Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu How's everyone doing today?
How did your worship go last night?
Did you start worshiping for the last 10 nights? Was it better than last year? Were you more prepared?
handler and handler that's good handle. That's beautiful. So how about you there are diaries or the wall list? Or checklist, checklists? Alhamdulillah going good. Perfect. So that's beautiful inshallah, today we are going to talk about something which is also very important for Ramadan and it can only be done in Ramadan. So that is it. So let's begin inshallah. Now who I know salia elara Sudhi and Corinne, Amanda. I'm all the way down Jimenez shavon rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Rubbish roughly suddenly, we're certainly Omri waterflow, OData melissani of Guru Kohli Robin as in our itema Aloma popping up Indeed, he may Allah give us the correct understanding of a readied.
We'll enable us to make the most of this Ramadan. And may Allah enable us to benefit from these remaining nights. And May Allah forgive us all. So let's look at our next chapter. In this book, the chapter is talking about the Sunnah of erotica.
The way Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used to perform his practice his way and his method and his method some other way he was going to spending time in the masjid being devoted to the worship of Allah and seeking nearness to Allah is called aitikaf. So it has to be in the masjid. The reason should be just to please Allah subhana wa Tada. And it is to be done by a piece a few people from every city and every town or every every community. Because it is called a Sona which is a key the key fire. So it's a tsunami, Akira sobre, la Saracen, um, he would perform it every year, but it is key fire, even if a few people do it. So but it should be encouraged and there should be someone
from every community staying in the masjid in Ramadan. So if not you we should help someone else to do that. So that there are actually people doing it in any community. Because if someone does it, you know, we don't have like, we don't have to worry about it. But if no one does it, then of course, we are answerable. So it is something that we should encourage others to perform.
Also, it is done during the last 10 days of Ramadan. During this time a person stays away from all worldly pursuits, family members, household chores, desires and distractions and devote himself or herself completely to the worship of Allah. So this exactly is called the artega. So inshallah we're going to look at where do we get it from? What are the references as well all of the references or majority of the references are found in Sahil Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. And first reference is missing here Buhari was tells us about Rasulullah sallallahu sillens wait. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to perform at calf every year in the month of Ramadan for 10 days. And then
it was the year of his dead, he stayed in ethica for 20 days, the last year of his life, but before that, it was 10 days throughout. And if someone is not able to do it GAF for all 10 days, then he can try to do as many days as possible, but they won't be most known. Remember that that's just you know, taking time out to worship Allah, it just delegating some of the hours of the days for Allah subhanaw taala but it won't be considered ethical. And we should avoid using the term ethical for them anyways. So can we do it for less days? How do we know we know it from a narration from Omar or the other one actually from even Omer. It the incident is about Amara the anon.
So the son of Omar medela one he narrated that his father honor,
he made a vow right before he became
Muslim. And then after that, he asked us what a loss Allah Lord, he was selam your rasulillah I vowed in the pre Islamic period of ignorance to stay in article for one night in muscle Haram. So what do I do now? Like it was like before Islam, but I did make this promise with Allah that I'm going to do epigraph in one for one night in your mustard. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam told him ofI be nazarick fulfill your another, fulfill your route. So that's the real, you know, some scholars take from it that you can also do it for one day. Or maybe some people say that just because it was the well, which was made like that, that's why was allowed. So Allah knows best. So
if we really want to experience it, we can try it for a day we can try for three days, but we should not call it yeah, I forgot. Because Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he never stayed for less than 10 days. And that's what we know from the authentic narrations. I shall or the other one her She also narrated, that you know how to do ethica so these are some things people usually ask and they asked pretty much every year. And somehow all of these are summed up in one Heidi's for our EAS and hamdulillah. So that so I shall on the other one how she narrated the practice for one who is observing a diva in the masjid is to not visit a sick person. So even if someone's very close and
that person is sick, so you cannot just go to wizard a sick person well while you are in Attica, also you cannot attend a funeral prayer. If it's in the same muster that's a different story but you cannot attend a funeral I can take the body to the
graveyard and but not and also it's not allowed to touch or embrace one's wife or to go out for anything but necessary purposes. What does that mean? So one should not leave the masjid. What would be a necessity necessity would be let's say in the masjid, there is no shower area and a person needs to take a mandatory shower like has to tail whistle, then of course, that person would have to leave the muscle but just for the shower and just for the whistle and then person should come back. Similarly, when you are sitting in the masjid, for at gaff, yes, they are washrooms. Alhamdulillah. But when you are in Haram, when you are either in mustard another week, or you are in mustard Haram
in Makkah, there are no washrooms inside the masjid. So people have to leave, right? So that is a necessity. And that is understood. But not just for other things not for Okay, let me just go by something that's a shop a new prayer mat. Or how about about a new massage? No, not for that just for something which is an accessory and without that you won't be able to, you know, have your either golf even because like if you have to do both, so you have to do both. So what can you do, and there is no editor without fasting. So it's not that you're not fasting when you're doing it.
You have to be in the fasting state so it's not too old to week or on your period. And there is no ethical except in mustard which is called Jamia Masjid, or congregational mosque where Juma is done, where other prayers are done in JAMA. Okay, so it's not, it should not be like, you know, a so called a new type of location and you start calling it Master, it has to be a proper main master area. And that's what we learn from that Howdy. So when do we begin, I think it's right after the buzzer prayer of the 20th of Ramadan. So it's not the night of 19th rather it is the 28th of Ramadan. That's what we find from the practice of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and again we have
talked about that's a condition that we should be fasting
then it will be easier to graph so that's something to remember and woman should also observe ethical ratio the allowance she reported. Let me show you the reference.
So he Muslim had this number 2784 Priscilla said I said I'm he used to observe a teacup in the last 10 days of Ramadan till Allah called him back like chill he passed away. So no longer when he was in then his wives observed at gap after him. So it is a Sunnah that we can learn from the as well as our personal loss and our center. So we can also do an autograph and handling.
But remember the conditions so what are some of the things to do to take leave from work if possible to perform at golf? At least you know few times in your lifetime. If you're not able to do it, encourage others do it. If you are able to do it, still encourage others do it inshallah help others in performing it. Like how can you help others who are who are in the state of ethnographer who are in mustered for aitikaf you can maybe get them close.
from home, you can help them with whatever they would need. And you know, you can go and ask them, they do need anything to eat, or do you need anything from home, I can go to your place I can get your books, I can get your clothes, I can get you your shampoo and stuff. So whatever you can do for them, so help others when they are inactive, and make a timetable for anything else if you are in it for yourself, inshallah
and spend your time in prayers, recitation and reflection, instead of thinking about Okay, when will we have Athar? When will we have some more? I wonder what what will we get today, I wonder who is sponsoring our food for today, this is not why we are there for so inshallah spend your time reflecting on the Quran, reflecting on the signs of Allah subhana wa, tada, recite as much as possible, a lot of people are able to complete their, you know, recitation of the whole Quran in 10 days. And that is easily done, especially when you're not doing anything, no chores, no responsibilities,
and refrain from useless conversations, and pointless arguments because it happens that when you are in a take off the other people with you, and you notice, you know, strange things, and you notice some, you know, some things which are new to you. So that's not the time to ask them. And that's not not the time to discuss matters, you can discuss them after Ramadan as well, inshallah, so refrain from all the arguments, and do a lot of liquor and make all your the aisles in Sharla. Because that's the best time and observe patients very important because of how, when we are not in our home, when we leave our comfort zone, things are not of course ideal. And they would be situations
and they would be, you know, people, they will make it hard for you. And they sometimes not do it intentionally, but it does happen. So do suffer. And once you're out of intagram don't complain, don't complain about any discomfort. That is the way this is actually suffer suffer is that you don't mention anything negative. And so while we don't understand that we keep, we keep complaining, and we you know, we are adding the sentence in the middle here and there as well. That you know, I was very somber, I was doing server that's not server, whereas your server now, so don't complain and complain about any discomfort because you were doing it for Allah anyways. You were not doing it
for people. So Alhamdulillah that was ethika one more point about a decaf. A lot of people they say that Subhanallah you know, we were very busy, we cannot do that we have a lot of responsibilities. Was there anyone more busy than the sort of loss at a loss and he did it every year? Was there anyone with more responsibilities to guide the whole market the whole humanity to begin with? So Paula, Was there anyone with more responsibility bigger responsibility than that of a pseudo loss that annoys him, he never made this an excuse to not perform a beautiful a bad it's a beautiful ibadah sadly, we don't have the opportunity to do it this year, because massages are close. But
insha Allah make it and make it your intention, make it a goal that you're going to do it next year in Shell just 10 days for Allah securities ask me a question, can women do it back at home? And not that we know of any authentic narration to back it up? And a majority of scholars all major ones, they don't allow that and they don't can't count it as a decaf. But again, you know, just to experience it, you can do it but don't call it ethical. Right? It's not the real aitikaf and Allah knows best. You can worship Allah right? You can dedicate three hours, four hours maybe all on like these days all night for Allah subhanaw taala not talking to anyone not doing anything extra. But
you know a guy would be in the masjid. And also ladies would do a take off in the masjid. So heavier would do a pickup in the masjid. So we also do ethical in the masjid Alhamdulillah so it is optimal, okay and Kassir for your patience. I'm just going to show you a few there As you may already know them so in Shall we don't have to, you know go over them
a lot. So let me just pull out the slideshow so I can show you.
So we have covered few few of the doors to do with
waking up and sleeping. Alright, so let me just show you.
So this is an easy one and many of us we already know it there are different versions of it. Some begin with Peacemaker worm. Some begin with along my bismack all of them are authentic and hamdulillah for that so don't worry if you have memorized the one starting off with this me this week alone, that's totally fine as well. along my business model or law in your name idi
In your name I live it's a very beautiful to end your day to remind yourself that you know, for Allah I live and for Allah idi. So what's the reference? Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam? He would say this when he would, you know, sorry when he would go to sleep and you would say another drawing, he would wake up and what is that another, it is Alhamdulillah Hindi, Ariana Verdana and tener la you know, sure, it's thanking Allah that He gave us our soul back, Allah. All praise is due to Allah who revived our souls after causing their debt. And to him is the resurrection. There's another beautiful there are from zaharie to do with sleeping and that is this mega Robbie whether it Jambi
in your name, my Lord, I lay my side down, where we go, I will and in your name, I raise it. So in your name, I'm putting my body on the bed, and I'm putting my soul on the bed, I'm putting myself on the bed, and I am going to raise myself in your name, beautiful way to affirm or to show our need of Allah subhanaw that has helped all the time. In unsuk NFC for HANA and if you take my soul, then have mercy upon it. Like if I die today, in my sleep, then if you take my soul, then have mercy on it. We're in ourselves for Africa. And if you release it if you send back my soul, then protect it panela why, how do you protect it be my first movie I buy the Kasai then protected with that which
you protect your righteous worshipers to the handler.
So May Allah enable us to make this why every night if you don't have it memorized, inshallah, there is an app by alhuda you can download it sleeping and waking up with car app, and this dries there. Also, it is in your ear going to sign book, I guess it is there. If it's not in charge, just take a screenshot and you can have it on your phone. Please make this every night and mail enable us to keep doing it. May Allah have mercy on our results. And may Allah protect our results to Xochimilco Frank is here for being attended to panic a long while behind viga eye shadow Illa Illa Illa under as the Furukawa to be like I said, I'm already Guadalajara America.

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
Are we the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish rockne Sabri were silly emri workflow looked at and melissani yufka who Kohli Allahumma de Colby was sadly Sani was through him at the Colby Armenian Oberon Ameen.
Mama chabi Allahu Allah said that when you recite the Quran, then recite in a way that both your ears can listen and your heart can comprehend. Because the ears are the connection between the tongue and the heart, which means that when a person recites the Quran, they should not just recite with the intention of completing a certain portion of the Quran, but the intention should be to benefit from what they are listening to. So when you come across a verse, for example, that mentions the mercy of Allah, then interact with the Quran, meaning seek Allah subhanaw taala has mercy. When you come across a verse that mentions punishment that
Again, ask Allah subhanaw taala for protection from the punishment, and when you come across in ayah that gives hope. Then ask Allah subhanaw taala with hope call upon him with hope. And we see that this was the way in which the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would also recite the Quran. We learned that when he recited the verses which refer to the glory of Allah, He glorified him, and when he recited the verses which tell how Allah subhanaw taala is to be begged the prophets of Allah who are to send him would then beg from Allah and when he recited the verses dealing with protection from the Lord, then he sought his protection. So as we read through the meaning of the Quran, you
know, interact with this meaning keep asking Allah subhanaw taala accordingly, Jews number 25 Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim la he Yura Dewar el Massara Juan Mata hood you mean some Marathi min a Khmer me her? Woman attack me lumen on sir. Well tell her illa ilmi where Will my unity him aina Shoraka he orlu the NACA ma'am in Nam in Shaheed, to Him alone is attribute knowledge of the hour and no fruits emerge from their coverings, nor does a female conceive or give birth except with his knowledge. And the day he will call to them. Where are my partners, they will say we announced to you that there is no longer among us any witness to that, and lost from them will be those they were
invoking before. And they will be certain that they have no place of escape. Here, Allah subhanaw taala has vast knowledge is being mentioned. And particularly those matters have been mentioned, which are known exclusively to Allah. And the first of those matters is the knowledge of the hour, which no prophet or Angel knows about. And no matter what we do, we can never ever figure out or estimate or guess or be certain about the exact time of the hour. This is knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala has kept with himself. What we know is that the hour is certainly coming, it is near. And instead of obsessing over when it is going to be we really need to obsess over preparing for it.
That is what we should be concerned about, instead of dwelling over the signs of the Day of Judgment, because for some people, everything strange that happens in the world, everything unusual that happens in the world is a sign of the hour. Yes, it is a sign of the hour, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the fact that he came is a sign of the closeness of the hour. But that is not the only thing that we should dwell over. What we need to really be concerned about is to prepare for the hour. Likewise, the fruits that emerge from their coverings, ie This is also knowledge that only Allah subhanaw taala knows as to when this is going to happen. And we see that
regardless of where if fruit is any no fruit, no flower sprouts, no bud emerges. No, no bird turns into a fruit except that Allah subhanaw taala knows about it, meaning he knows when the fruit will become ripe. And this is something that we see in our kitchen also, you know, we bring fruit and we know that it is not ripe yet we keep it outside or we keep it in the refrigerator thinking that within a few days it will be right. But then by the time we cut it Subhan Allah, it's overripe. So these are matters that we don't know. And no female gets pregnant, whether human or animal, except that Allah subhanaw taala knows about it. And at times, it takes several weeks before a woman even
realizes she's pregnant. And when exactly a child is going to be born. Yes, salaam Henny no one has that knowledge except Allah subhanaw taala. So we see in these verses that Allah subhanaw taala knows what people can never know. Or Allah subhanaw taala knows what people don't know yet, meaning he knows even before we know why, because Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge is camel, it is perfect. It is shamel it is inclusive of all it is not limited to the past, or the present, meaning time is irrelevant when it comes to the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala. And it is ever relevant when it comes to our knowledge. We know one thing one day and forget about it the next day we study
so well. But when the exam appears before us it is as if we never read those words before. So Allah subhanaw taala is the only one who is perfect in his knowledge. And no one besides Allah is like that. So how could they be God? How could they be worshiped? So those who
Worship others besides Allah, such people will be humiliated on the Day of Judgment, that where are the beings that you used to adore that you used to worship? So the fact is that there is no one who shares in Allah subhanaw taala his knowledge, no one knows as completely and perfectly as Allah subhanaw taala does, and this is why no one shares in his Ulu here, meaning he alone is worthy of worship, because He alone is God lyase Amal insano min Dora in hide what a master who shall fail, awesome can old man is not weary of supplication for good things. But if evil touches him, he is hopeless and despairing. And he This is so true, we never stop wishing for more. We never stop
wishing for good things. We always want more, and you know, nicer things. Even if it's food, you know, we want to try a new, you know, different foods, better foods. When it comes to our health, we want better health, when it comes to opportunities in life, we want more and better opportunities, better privileges. This is part of human nature. And we see that even if our condition has improved significantly in the past years, our desires and wishes and goals have only increased. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm used to say that if the son of Adam, were given a valley full of gold, he would love to have a second one Subhan Allah, and he This is the reality of human beings, that
our greed is endless. The problem though, is in giving up hope, because that is what is being mentioned over here that if evil touches him, he is hopeless. And despairing. They say that it's always easier to go up the ladder, but very hard to go down. Meaning a lot of people find it easy to, you know, adjust to a better way of living. But when it comes to scaling down, then that is something that many people find hard. emotion is very hard. If players don't get drafted for a season or two, even though they're swimming in money, any they go through so much depression, and they're so upset, they have to go through therapy and whatnot. And this struggle, of course, it's
understandable because now you have to adjust to a new and a very uncomfortable reality. But a person must have hope, and patience. This is what can help a person thrive through difficulties in life. And if we let him taste Mercy from Us, after an adversity, which has touched Him, He will surely say, this is due to me, meaning I deserve this. I earned it. I worked really hard. And finally, I have the result of my effort. And he says, I do not think that our will occur, meaning he got so busy enjoying his life that he forgets about the afterlife. And even if I should be returned to my Lord, indeed, for me, there will be with him the best. Meaning if I have good things now, I'll
have good things later as well. I've got because the concept here is that I have good things right now because God loves me. He's happy with me. He likes what I'm doing. So you know what, even after I die, God will be happy with me, and he will give me good things. But remember, having good things in life is not a sign of Allah subhanaw taala is pleasure with you. But we will surely inform those who disbelieved about what they did, and we will surely make them taste a massive punishment. So in these verses to very reprehensible human traits are mentioned and what are they that first of all in hardship, man despairs, he becomes sad, like someone who has despaired is sad. And secondly, when he
received some blessing, he forgets that Allah subhanaw taala is the giver, he believes that he deserves it. So it has pride, he thinks that he is right. And he keeps on going and going on in in the wrong that he is already committing. And this affects a person's belief and preparation for the hereafter. You see, despair, is also a result of pride. It is actually another face of pride. Because a person you know when they believe that I deserve my blessings. Of course, this is pride. But what is despair? despair is that how come I didn't get this meaning I deserve this and I should have this and if I don't have this, this is very unfair. So I am going to quit. I'm going to quit on
life. I'm going to quit on God. There is no point in living. This is a complete disaster, etc, etc. And one form of despair is to give up praying to give up calling upon Allah subhanaw taala
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the Dora of the servant is granted, as long as he does not supplicate for sin, or for severing the ties of kinship, or he does not become impatient. So the Prophet sallallahu artesan was asked that, what does it mean by becoming impatient? And he said, that a person says, the URL to the URL to I made the raw, I made the raw, but I did not find it being responded, meaning my dog was not answered. And so he becomes frustrated and abandons making Dora. This is also a form of despair. And remember, despair is a major sin, just like pride is because it's coming. It's the it's another face of pride. We learn in the Hadees that the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do not even ask about three people, meaning, don't even ask me about what kind of a terrible punishment they will be given. Who which three people, firstly, the man who tries to snatch away from Allah, his cloak of greatness, and his, his cloak of his ease out of honor, any the person who tries to compete with Allah in greatness and an honor. Secondly, a man who has doubt in the command of Allah, things like I wonder if God is even there? Or why would God do such a thing, make such a thing or decide such a thing? And thirdly, the man who despairs from the mercy of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala, Raj Mattila, ne this is this is something very serious,
this is very, very offensive, that Allah subhanaw taala has created you He has given you so much. And if he has tested you with a hardship, why are you giving up so quickly? And when we bestow favor upon men, he turns away any This is what many people do, they turn away from remembering Allah from even acknowledging that what they have is from Allah, and he distances himself, meaning he goes even further away from Allah, he forgets about him, as if now it is to beneath him to worship Allah to obey Allah. But when evil touches him, then he is full of extensive supplication, meaning, in good times, he completely forgets about Allah. And in difficulty, he makes long launder us, say, Have you
considered if the Quran is from Allah, and who disbelieved in it, who would be more astray than one who is in extreme dissension? Now remember that it is, it is perfectly fine that in hardship a person begs Allah subhanaw taala even more, that is something that we should do. But what is being condemned over here is that in good times, a person completely forgets about Allah, and he distances himself from Allah subhanaw taala. This is not healthy. And so if hardship is a means of drawing this close to Allah, when Allah he'll hand, but then this means that once a loss puntata removes that trouble from us, then we should not forget about him, we should still remember him and thank
him, say, Have you considered if the Quran is from Allah, and who disbelieved in it, who would be more astray than one who is an extreme dissension, meaning the Quran has guidance, and if a person leaves it, then such a person will be far away from guidance, they cannot be guided then saluti him Aya Tina, we will show them our signs were in the horizons and within themselves, until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth, the Quran is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord, that he is over all things a witness, meaning even if people don't see and realize all the evidences in themselves or in the world around them? Still, is it not sufficient that Allah subhanaw
taala has said about this book that it is loudly Buffy that there is no doubt in it? We don't need science to prove the truthfulness of the Quran to us. We don't need life experiences to teach us that the Quran is true. Allah subhanaw taala His Word is sufficient. So we see over here that Allah subhanaw taala shows people through different signs, which are within themselves, and also around them. What does he show them and the whole Hulk that it is the truth that the Quran is true, and also the fact that he is true, meaning through one's own life experiences, through the ups and downs in life, through experiencing loss of control, through failure through illness through weakness
through agonies. Allah subhanaw taala shows us the truth again and again. So that we accept it. We accept that Allah is true, that his promise is true, that he is just that he is the greatest that he is the owner that he has absolute power, that we are truly his slaves. We realize that we are weak that we are completely
dependent on Allah subhanaw taala. So we must accept that truth. And we must show that acceptance by submitting to him by following his commands, not by resisting him. And by drawing away from him. Allah in the home familia Tim Melaka era be him, unquestionably, they are in doubt about the meeting with their Lord. unquestionably he is of all things encompassing. The fact is that there are many people who believe and they are certain that they will meet Allah, yet they don't prepare for that meeting accordingly. And remember that knowledge of this fact alone is not enough. Or my bin Abdulaziz once he ascended the pulpit, and he praised and Glorified Allah, and then he said, Oh,
people, I didn't gather you here to give you some new instruction, but I reflected over the matter that you are going to return to Allah. And I have realized that the one who believes in this return is foolish, and the one who denies it is going to be ruined. And then he descended the member. Now, what did he mean by saying that the person who believes in returning to Allah is foolish, meaning that even though he knows and believes in this meeting, he isn't really preparing for it as he should? He is still wasting his time in heedlessness in desires and in persistence in sin. And what is this other than foolishness? So we all need to think about ourselves? that yes, I believe I know
that I'm going to return to my Lord, I'm going to meet him. But how am I preparing for that meeting?
surah two Shura Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, Han I mean, I ain't seen cough. Thus has he revealed to you, oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to those before you? Who Has he revealed, who is the one who has revealed, Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Wise, To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is in the earth, and He is the Most High, the most great, the heavens almost break from above them. Why? Out of fear of their Lord, or because of what the idolaters say, and the angels exalt Allah with praise of their Lord and ask forgiveness for those on earth? unquestionably, it is Allah who is the Forgiving the merciful Subhan Allah again, the angels are mentioned that they
seek forgiveness for those on Earth. Why? Because those on Earth are constantly inviting Allah subhanaw taala His wrath upon themselves still fit Allah.
How by what they say and what they do. Remember that if Allah subhanaw taala were to punish people for what they do if allow her to punish us for what we do. Not a single creature would remain alive on Earth. So the angels who carry the throne of Allah, they are afraid they keep glorifying and praising Allah and they keep seeking forgiveness for those on Earth. We learned that four of those angels they say Subhana Allah will be handy Carla Hill maker bar there in Mecca, Glory be to You and all praise be to You for Your forbearance. After your knowledge and the other angels This is how Annika will be handy Carla off wicker bar the karateka. All Glory be to You and praise be to you
over the fact that you pardon, even though you are fully able to execute revenge and give punishment and those who take as allies other than him. Allah is yet Guardian over them, and you are not over them a manager and thus we have revealed to you an Arabic Quran that you may warn the mother of cities meaning the people of Makkah, and those around it and Warren of the day of assembly, about which there is no doubt a party will be in Paradise and a party in the Blaze, one group in Paradise and another group in hell. And if Allah will, he could have made them of one religion, but he admits whom He wills into his mercy and the wrongdoers have not any protector or helper or have they taken
protectors or allies besides him. But Allah He is the protector for Allah who who will well he and he gives life to the dead and he is over all things competent woman telephone fee him and Shay in for hakuho in a law and in anything over which you disagree. its ruling is to be referred to Allah say, a valley como la hora b that is Allah My Lord, are they here to look into upon him I have relied what he need and to him
I turned back, we see that in this world, there's disagreement over every little thing. So panela whether it is a religious matter or worldly matter, within a family even any there's differences, even within the same methodology within the same fields, you know, people differ, whether it is uh, you know, business models or health issues or medicine, anything, people have differing opinions. Why? Because people think differently. People have different levels of knowledge, different life experiences, and they come from different backgrounds and to think accordingly. So when there are differences, how should they be resolved? For her qemu illa Allah, its judgment rests with Allah,
meaning First of all, see what Allah subhanaw taala says regarding that, meaning check the Quran, check the lot that Allah subhanaw taala has revealed. And secondly, this means that for hoopoe, Illa, Allah, its decision will come from Allah, meaning the solution to the differences that you have will come from Allah. So make dua to Allah, ask Allah to give you clarity. And then we see that there are matters which can never fully be resolved in this world. So again, for hokhmah, who is Allah, Allah who will judge regarding them on the Day of Judgment. So whatever differences we may have, you know, sometimes these differences create a lot of, you know, tension in one's life, a lot
of difficulty, you know, it's trains, relationships. So what is necessary that for hokhmah, who Illa Allah, ask Allah turn to Allah, He is Creator of the heavens and the earth, He has made for you from yourselves mates, and among the cattle also mates. Why? Because he multiplies you thereby, there is nothing like unto him, lays a committee he Shay, and he is the hearing the seeing well, who was severely bullied. So remember, Allah subhanaw taala has no equivalent, no one who is like him, he has no partner, he is one he is unique. That means that we should not compare him to the creation, we should not think of him as we think about the creation. And we should not build an image about
God that resembled the creation because Allah is above that he is beyond our perception laser committee he shaped where he was semi robustly, and at the same time, do not deny the attributes of Allah which Allah has mentioned himself, the fact that he is hearing the fact that he is seeing and other attributes Lahu McCauley do some are worth he will owe to Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth, he extends provision for whom He wills and restricts it. Indeed, he is of all things knowing. So we see that Allah subhanaw taala is the owner of all treasures, and the person who believes in this with conviction, then such a person has no hesitation in asking a law, that he or
Allah, you will have what I need, and you give you extend provision, and I need this and I beg you to give this to me. So the treasures that people possess, remember each other Allah subhanaw taala, is also the owner of those of those treasures. So there is nothing except that Allah subhanaw taala owns it, nothing that any servant has, except that Allah subhanaw taala has given it to them. So in our heads, we learned that Allah, Allah says, All my servants, all of you are astray, except those whom I have guided. So seek guidance from me and I shall guide you, all my servants, all of you are hungry, except those whom I have fed, so seek food for me and I shall feed you, all my servants, all
of you are naked, except those whom I have clothed, so see clothing from me, and I shall clothe you, all my servants, if the first of you and the last of you and the humans of you and the general view, were all to stand together in one place and ask of me, and I were to give everyone what you requested, then that would not decrease what I possess, except what is decreased of the ocean, when a needle is dipped into it, Allahu Akbar, when you dip a needle in the ocean, how much water is taken out by the needle? Hardly anything. So when you ask Allah subhanaw taala, realize that Allah has a lot to give. So whether it is a material thing that you need or a spiritual, remember, Allah
is the owner of it, and he is the one who gives it. So ask Him and He will provide it in his ways, through the ASVAB that he has created, shut our local, he has ordained for you of religion, what he enjoined upon knew, and that which he has, he has ordained for you of religion, what he enjoined upon knew, and that which We have revealed to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and what we enjoined upon Ibrahim and Moosa and Isa, and what is that to establish the religion and not be divided there in difficult for those who associate us
There is with Allah is that to which you invite them. Allah chooses for himself whom He wills and guides to himself whoever turns back to him. So we see that the religion that has been given to the last messenger Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, is the same as the religion that was given to the first messenger, no, are they his Salah, and all of the prophets and messengers in between? And what is that religion and again with Dean Wella, Tata for Kofi, meaning worship only Allah and do not become divided. And this is in complete contrast to what the idolaters do, they worship multiple different gods and hence they have become divided. One worships a human, another worships an idol, another an
animal, so on and so forth. And the wish the keen find to hate very upsetting. So it is said here coupled Arlen, we should Akina matter the room LA. Why, because they think that their gods are being insulted. So remember, that all prophets of Allah brought the same teachings, meaning the main principles of religion have always been the same, because all the prophets came for one purpose, and that was to call people to the worship of Allah. So the core beliefs of religion have always been consistent, and what are they to worship only Allah, to believe in the prophets, to believe in the scripture to believe in the hereafter? But of course, the ways of worship, the commands the law,
that has always varied. Why? Because things changed drastically. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that profits are brothers in faith having different mothers, their religion is one, meaning the religion is one. And yes, the the laws, the details of the law, they were different. Why? Because Because things changed over time. And this shows us that Islam is the natural religion. Why is it that the beliefs have always been the same? Because facts are facts? They don't need to be revised. They don't need to be changed. What matter for Rocco, and they did not become divided, meaning the followers of the prophets only became divided until after knowledge had come to them.
Why, out of jealous animosity between themselves, like people who denied eSATA his Salaam, and then people who denied Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. What was the reason? Was it ignorance? No, it was jealous animosity. And if not for a word that proceeded from your Lord until a specified time, it would have been concluded between them, meaning they would have been punished severely, they would have been removed from the surface of the earth. But that is not the way of a law. And indeed, those who are granted inheritance of the scripture after them concerning it are in disquieting doubt. So here the reason for religious divisions is mentioned. That it is the greed for greatness, for being
right and more popular and dominant, that has led many people to stick to their errors than to accept the truth, fairly radical further through. So to that invite meaning to the religion of Allah, to the worship of Allah alone. This is what you should be inviting people to was the theme come out, omit and remain on the right course, as you are commanded, and do not follow their inclinations. But say, I have believed in what Allah has revealed of the Quran. And I have been commanded to do justice among you. Allah is our Lord and your Lord, for us are our deeds and for you your deeds, there is no need for argument between us and you, Allah will bring us together and to
him is the final destination. So we see here that the Prophet sallallahu earlier son was being given a beautiful instruction, that you believe yourself, and then invite people to believe as well. Believe in who believe in the oneness of Allah. And then be firm, be steadfast remain on the right course, meaning be firm in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Only then don't get deviated after that. Man as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that whole messenger of Allah, tell me something of Islam, which I do not need to ask about from anyone after you. He said, cool man to be. So Mr. Kim, that say I believe in Allah, and then be firm. He said, so what is it that I should be
that that I should be careful about? Meaning what is it that I should avoid? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pointed towards his tongue, meaning be firm, in Islam, in worshipping Allah. And also, be careful about your tongue, meaning how you use your tongue, the kind of words that you say, in another headies we learn is the theme, Walters and holo cook, that be firm, and your character should be beautiful, your your hornak your manners should be excellent. Because the most important thing after believing is to remain steadfast to maintain that faith to uphold that faith and to not let go of it.
Because of difficulties or because of the criticism of people, or you know, not get distracted so that a person's intention becomes someone other than Allah. No, this is to karma is very important. And then as you are trying your best to be firm, you must also be considerate of people. being considered off people doesn't mean that you start compromising on your faith, no being considered means that you are good to them in the way that you speak to them in the way that you deal with them. Our problem is that we start doing something good, you know, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. But then we also become very harsh with people. And we think that that harshness means that
we are now being firm in religion, no, harshness is not something because of which people are blessed. Allah subhanaw taala blesses people because of their gentleness because of their good character. So yes, worship Allah. You know, for example, these days you start reciting the Quran, but then as you start reciting your children come and interrupt. So then Watch your tongue. Watch your manners be firm, meaning keep reciting, don't leave your recitation. But then also watch your manners. When Lydia you had Juna filla, human bardi mas de Bella who, and those who argue concerning Allah, meaning his oneness, and his religion, after he has been responded to their argument is
invalid with their Lord, and upon them is his wrath, and for them is a severe punishment, meaning when the truth is established, and people are still arguing about its validity, then they're just wasting their time. So don't lend them an ear. And remember, such people will never succeed. It is Allah who has sent down the book in truth, and also the balance, and what will make you perceive, perhaps the hour is near. Notice how three things are mentioned in this idea, the revelation of the Quran, and the fact that there is a truth and justice, and then the fact that the hour is near, what's the connection here that follow the book, now that it has come. And when you follow the book,
you will be able to do what is right, and you will be fair. And be careful about that because the hour is coming, and your deeds will be weighed and accounted for. So now you know, and your actions must change accordingly. Those who do not believe in it, are impatient for it because they don't understand how serious the Day of Judgment is. So they keep asking when is it going to be? When is it going to be? But those who believe are fearful of it, and know that it is the truth. unquestionably, those who dispute concerning the hour are in extreme error. So we see here that the reason why a person would fear the Hereafter, is because they actually believe in it. Because
remember, it also believe in the hereafter. Why do they believe in the hereafter? Because in this world, full compensation and absolute justice is impossible. It's not possible. And as humans in you, we yearn for justice, when we see so much unfairness around us that how is it fair, that a person who is in his own home is assaulted and killed, a person who is jogging in his own neighborhood is assaulted and killed any, without any criminal record? For no crime? A person is killed with so much force that is used against them, doesn't your conscience tell you that this is not fair, that there must be a sequel that there has to be, you know, it is a justice, that that
must be a compensation that must be given. So we see that human conscience demands that there must be justice. And this is why the home of the Hereafter is there. The world is just one side of the equation. And this is why if we only believe in this world, and nothing after this, no afterlife, we can never ever be at peace. So those who believe in the Hereafter, they prepare for it. And they're fearful about it. And this is a sign of truly believing in the hereafter. You see, shaitan also believes that the day of judgment is coming, but he doesn't have a man. He doesn't fear that the coming of the hour. He man in the hereafter means that a person accepts, accepts the fact he doesn't
just know about it, but this surrender and they do what their faith necessitates. So a person who lives with such fear that Allah subhanaw taala will grant them security on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, though, that Allah exalted says, By my honor, I will not gather on my servant to securities and to fears, meaning if you lives in security in the world from me, then I will put him in fear on the day that I gather my servants and if you live in fear of
Me in the world, then I will grant him security on the day that I gathered my servants. And if you think about it, the concept of fearing the meeting with Allah, fearing the meeting living with this fear, this concept is only in Islam. In other religions where there is belief in the afterlife, you know people think death means Heaven, that now you become an angel or now you're just in paradise. And even with the belief in the hereafter they live with a man with security in the world without any fear of God, which is why they go on doing whatever they please. But the real believers, meaning those who truly believe in the Hereafter, they combine hope with fear. This is why the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would pray, Allah who maletto Xeni young will piano that Oh Allah do not humiliate me on the Day of Judgment, and we should also make the Allahumma inni. Rubicam in liquid dunia will be up on will piano that Oh Allah, I seek your protection from the constriction of worldly life and the construction of the Day of Judgment, meaning save me on that day. Allah who luckily for me or ebrd, Allah is subtle and kind with his servants, he gives provision to whom He wills and he is the powerful, be Exalted in Might. Allah subhanaw taala is a lovely an unlucky leaf is the one who is ever kind, ever kind with his servants. But what do we think kindness is we think
kindness is you know, cotton candy and marshmallows, endless laughter and you know, fulfillment of every wish and desire. You see if you if you saw a child being treated this way in the name of kindness, who would be worried for that child? That may God protect that child's health? For you know, you will you'll be worried for the for the child's teeth, that if they're getting sugar on sugar on sugar, in in the name of love and kindness, then what's going to become of this child you're going to worry for their life that how will they survive? So kindness doesn't mean that you fulfill every wish, of those whom you are showing kindness to know. When Eli methylone Allah, Allah
subhanaw taala is locally from bury body he's ever kind with his servants. What does that mean? This means that when his servants seek his help, and when his servants rely upon him, after having despaired from the creation, and his servants turn toward him, than Allah subhanaw taala accept, then Allah subhanaw taala accepts his servants, Allah subhanaw taala turns towards them, Allah subhanaw taala is kind. So he accepts their little effort, and he gives them heavy rewards for the little that they do. Allah subhanaw taala is kind to his servants. So he mends the brokenhearted and he creates ease for them. He is kind to his servants. So he doesn't give them immediate punishment
when they disobey, nor does he disappoint those who placed their hope in Him. He is kind, so he conceals their faults, he is kind so he forgives those who repent. He is kind so He is merciful to even those who don't show mercy to themselves. Subhan Allah. Remember, Allah is more kind to you than you are to yourself. And it is mentioned here that Yoda zuku, Maja Shah, he provides whom He wills. So what does this mean that we trust him in the matter of provision that we ask him with a lot of hope, and we should believe that Allah subhanaw taala provides, he is the giver. And the fact is that Allah has given you more than what you ever asked him for, and he gives you from where you
do not even expect and he is a Rockaway EULA Aziz, he is not kind out of weakness. No, he is ever strong, he is fully able to execute his wrath on us, if he wants, but instead of punishing us immediately, he is kind to us, he chooses to be kind. So, he keeps giving us more and more chances. And he is Aziz, he is ever mighty, he gives more to some less to some, not because of some limitation, not because of stinginess or fear. No, he is capable of giving more than what you can ever imagine. He is not stingy. But the but the decisions of Allah regarding provision. They're based on his on his wisdom, mankind. Are you ready to help mankind? Are you ready to how to sell our
hero, Nancy dilla houfy How to say whoever desires the harvest of the Hereafter, we increase for him in his harvest, meaning we multiply his rewards many times over and whoever desires the harvest of this world Subhan Allah we give him there off, but there is not for him in the hereafter any share. Allahu Akbar. You see when you when you say
A seed. What do you expect that a plant will grow? Right? Some people, what they want is when they do something, they want the result, the reward immediately. Now in this world, I'm making the all I wanted answer today, I'm asking Allah to heal me, I want to be healed today. I want money, I want ease. I want that today. And then there are other people who, when they worship Allah, when they ask him for something, then they expect reward from Allah subhanaw taala, in the hereafter. That is what matters. It's not the things of the world, which are the goal. It's the Ridwan of Allah, the approval of a lion, the Hereafter, that is their ultimate goal. So they trust the plan of Allah
subhanaw taala. They trust his decision, and they keep on worshiping Allah, they keep on asking him, they keep on praying to Him. So remember, Allah subhanaw, taala gives in this world, and he also gives in the hereafter in this world, you only get what is fixed for you, what is recorded for you, not more, and not less, you don't have control over that what you do have control over is what you want in the hereafter. So the question is, what is it that you are focused on? So now how is it that we can make sure that we are seeking the harvest the result of the Hereafter, that first of all, we do things now, that will benefit us there? meaning all of our focus and energy should not just be on
getting results here, that for example, I am cleaning my house now. So that I can be you know, I can have a relaxed evening. Okay, that's fine. But all of your energy should not just go into your house, spare some time, make some time for what will benefit you in the hereafter.
And then this also means that you spend your money in causes in things that will benefit you in the hereafter. Think about it, aren't there funds that you set aside for your children's future, which they can only access after a certain age or for yourself that you can only access after you retire? So set aside some funds for your athlete or also where one will be multiplied 700 times over? How much does the government you know, give when you invest in your in your Children's Fund. Sometimes, you know, they will match it, sometimes they will, you know, give a certain benefit. Or sometimes the government will add to your retirement fund. But no one offers you 700% Allah subhanaw taala
offers you that So spend of your money in the hereafter also meeting spending causes that will benefit you in the hereafter. And especially in the month of Ramadan. And in these days and nights when we're seeking Laila to cuddle. Because imagine if you spend $1, imagine that will be like you spent 4000 here's how much the reward has been multiplied. So make it a point that every single day, and every single night of these remaining days and nights of Ramadan, you give something, even if it's just $5 $10, whatever it is that you can afford, but give something and don't just give, you know to your friends and family any that is excellent, of course, but especially spend in the way of
Allah because that is the best form of charity to spend in the way of Allah that brings the greatest results in the hereafter. So whoever desires the harvest of the Hereafter, Allah subhanaw taala will increase that for them, which means that when we work, we should have the arsenal in mind. That should be our intention, and our manner should also be accordingly. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam warned us that whoever does the work of the hereafter for worldly gain, will have no share in the hereafter. So our Nia should be correct, or have they? Or have the other day teas who have ordained for them a religion to which Allah has not consented, meaning what is it that they're following a
law other than which Allah has revealed, but if not for the decisive word, it would have been concluded between them. And indeed, the wrongdoers will have a painful punishment, you will see the wrongdoers fearful of what they have earned, and it will certainly befall them. And those who have believed and done righteous deeds will be in lush regions of the gardens and paradise, having whatever they will in the presence of their Lord. That is what is the great bounty. It is that of which Allah gives good tidings to his servants who believe and do righteous deeds, say oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I do not ask you for this message any payment, but only goodwill
through kinship and whoever commits a good deed, we will increase for him good there in Indeed Allah is Forgiving and Appreciative. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remember, he was related to all of the you know, different
People within makaha, right in one way or another. And regarding the ties of kinship, any paying regard to the ties of kinship, this was something very, very important in our culture, this was a very important value. So here it is said that at least have regard for me because of the blood that we share, as even our best explain that this means all Quraysh you should keep good relation with me. Any all I expect from you is that after all, you're my relatives, so leave my opposition, leave my opposition, meaning even if you don't want to believe in me, fine, don't but at least have regard for the fact that I'm related to you. Or do they say he has invented about Allah a lie? But if Allah
willed, He could seal over your heart, and Allah eliminates falsehood and establishes the truth by his words. Indeed, he is knowing of that within the chests will who will lead the Yakubu, Tabata and everybody and it is he who accepts repentance from his servants. We are foreigners say he, and he pardons misdeeds. We are a matter of our Loon. And he knows what you do Allah accept repentance from his servants. This is a fact that Allah subhanaw taala is telling us about why does he accept repentance? Because people are his very bad, they're his slaves. So he is kind to his slaves, he knows their weaknesses, their deficiencies, and he owns them. So why would he reject them when they
admit their mistakes, and they come to him with humility. We are after all his very bad. And this is his promise will love we your Edo Kumar filata Minh, who Allah promises you forgiveness from himself. And remember, Allah is very, very pleased with the repentance of his slaves. So we must first believe that we are not perfect that we do wrong, we make mistakes. And then we must believe that Allah subhanaw taala forgives those who turned to him who know that there is no one to forgive sins, except he because He alone is God, as we learn in a Hadees, that a loss punctata says that whoever knows that I am able to forgive since then I will forgive him. And I will not mind as long
as he does not associate anything with me. And even when a person keeps repeating sin, because they're human, and repeating sin in the sense that, you know, you save yourself from one sin, but then you slip here, and again, you make Toba from that and then you slip there, and then you fix one thing and then you slip there any we're humans we keep falling in one way or another. So it is important that we believe that Allah subhanaw taala keeps forgiving. We learned in a Hadees that a man came upon a skull, meaning he saw a human skull. And he said, Oh Lord, You are you and I am I you keep forgiving and I keep sinning. And he fell in prostration. So it was said, raise your head
for you keep sinning and I keep forgiving, and that man was forgiven. So this is what we should also believe that Allah subhanaw taala forgives sins, we should admit our mistakes were thought off to be them be that Oh Allah, I admit my sins, I confess them I know I am wrong. I know I have all of these mistakes. I have many shortcomings. But I also know that you forgive sins. So your Allah, forgive me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Indeed, Allah accepts the repentance of a slave as long as his soul does not reach his throat. So keep seeking forgiveness. And he answers the supplication of those who have believed and unrighteous deeds and increases for them from his
bounty. So one of the ways of having our drawers accepted is that we also do righteous deeds. Any if you ever wonder that, you know I've been making I've been making the all my draw is not being answered, maybe we need to reflect over our actions, that are we also supporting our daughters with good deeds, because good deeds are a means of acceptance of grace. And Allah increases for them from his bounty, meaning Allah gives people more than what they ever asked for, but the disbelievers will have a severe punishment. And if you think about it, did we pray for everything we have? No, Allah subhanaw taala has given us way more than we ever asked for. But in this world, remember, Allah
subhanaw taala gives us within a certain limit. He doesn't give us everything that we wish for. Why? Because and if Allah had extended excessively, provision for his servants, they would have committed tyranny throughout the earth, but he sends it down in an amount which he wills indeed he is of his servants Acquainted and Seeing, meaning Allah subhanaw taala knows that if he gave us everything we wanted, then what would we do liberal Whoa, fill up, we would commit tyranny on Earth, there will be much corruption and oppression. And we see this that people who do have a lot of wealth, then what happens to them, they become oppressive, they become rebellious. They
become more destructive. So it is for our own good that Allah subhanaw taala gives us within a certain limit. And the any Think about it this is human nature, that if we don't have limits, if we don't have boundaries, we really become uncontrollable. And you think about your own children. How is it that you're said that you're always setting boundaries for them, even when it comes to the screen time? You know, 15 minutes 20 minutes one episode, you know, one, once only you can play any we set all of these boundaries. Why? Because we know that these boundaries are healthy for them. So just like that, Allah subhanaw taala has restricted, you know, our our freedoms and our blessings,
because he knows us. He knows that if there were no restrictions, then we would end up harming ourselves. And it is he who sends down the rain after they had despaired and spreads His mercy and he is the protector of the Praiseworthy, meaning he doesn't leave people in absolute and perpetual misery. He brings some relief, sometimes brief periods of it, but there is certainly relief because Allah is unwilling, he is a Hamid, so call upon your friend, your protector, and he's praiseworthy, so praise Him and thank him for the gifts that he showers on you. And we see rain is mentioned here the Prophet sallallahu Urdu son loved rain, we learned that at one occasion, rain fell, and he
removed his cloth from his from his from his upper body, meaning he exposed his shoulders. And the companions asked that Why did you do that? He said, because the rain has just come from Allah, the Exalted, and of His Signs of the creation of the heavens and earth, and what he has dispersed throughout them of creatures, and he for gathering them when he wills is competent, and whatever strikes you of disaster, it is for what your hands have earned, but he pardons much, or pardon us all. And he will not cause failure to Allah upon the earth. And you have not besides Allah, any protector or helper, Allahu Akbar. And if Allah is angry with you, then where will you go, and of
His signs are the ships in the sea, like mountains, if he will, he could still the wind, and they would remain motionless on its surface, indeed, and that are Signs for everyone patient and grateful. And we see that we see that when a person is traveling over water, any there are moments when you feel very afraid, and you also feel greatly relieved. So be patient in fear and be grateful, when relieved, fear invites one to be patient and relief in invites one to be grateful, or he could destroy them for what they earned. But he pardons much and that is so those who dispute concerning our signs may know that for them, there is no place of escape. So whatever thing you have
been given, it is but for enjoyment of the worldly life, but what is with Allah is better and more lasting. But who is this for? It is for those who have believed and upon their Lord, they rely, and those who avoid the major sins and immoralities and when they're angry, they forgive what is ism Kabbalah isn't they avoid sins, sin, remember, is that which your heart is uncomfortable with, and you dislike that it would be disclosed to other people, meaning the action which you which when you do it, your heart tells you this is wrong, and you don't want people to find out about it. So they avoid major sins. And when a person is careful about the major sense they also avoid minor sins
because they realize that even minor sins are enough to destroy a person because remember too many minor sins or consistent minor sins, that they become equal to a major sin.
And the inner conscience doesn't let a person be immoral to commit profanity to enjoy loot and dirty things. So so they avoid for wha haish also immoralities and we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from immoralities we learned that Abdullah the Allahu anhu one of his daughters, we the meaning of dog that he would make very frequently was on a burner asleep Bina wa Dena subida Sabina Salaam, when a jean Amina Lumet to Eleanor was three final for wha heisha. Mahara mean how am I baton Wa barik Lana fee a smarty now what up sorry now what kulu been our as word you know, with the Ria Tina, what to ballerina in Mecca and Dr. Webber Rahim. What's your Elena shekhinah Lynette Matic
madonnina be her pa ilina be her. We're Atomium her Alena and part of this draw is that Allah turn away from us all in moralities those which are apparent and those which are hidden, meaning save us from immoral behavior, immoral actions, and then anger is mentioned that when they get angry, they forgive Allahu Akbar, which means that you will get angry
This is only normal, this is only natural. But just because you're angry, it doesn't mean that you express it, that you unleash it on people uncontrollably. No, you must control your anger, you must forgive those who have angered you. Whether it is your child, or your spouse, your coworker, for whatever reason that they have angered you for forgive them. Why? Because as we learn here that Jenna good reward is promised to such people. The Prophet sallallahu earlier cinema also said that that love will occur Jenna, don't be angry and you will have Jenna and we learned that a person asked the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that what is it that will distance me from the anger of Allah?
He said, a lot of them don't get angry, meaning you control your anger and you pardon people and Allah subhanaw taala will also pardon you remember that excessive anger. This is not only a spiritual disease, it's also an emotional problem. And it leads to many, many problems. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Lata Hold up, don't get angry. When people would ask him for advice he would say Lata Hold up. Why? Because a man said I reflected over this and I realized for either lovable yeji Maru Sharla kulu because anger gathers all evil. Yanni it leads to a lot of evil because in anger, we say things we do things which we later on regret, when
loneliness, the Jabu lira be him. And those who have responded to their Lord denies for them that he or Allah This is your command, lab bake, I surrender. This is my pleasure, I will obey you and they established prayer and whose affair is determined by consultation among themselves what room shoe rabina home and from what We have provided them they spend this doesn't mean that they consult people regarding every big and small thing and every single matter of there is no I'm would have been dinar recited this iron. He said that even our bear said wash our home fee barbil any consult people in some matters, which matters matters which are related to them. Meaning when you know that
something that you're going to do is going to affect other people, then you better consult them. Don't just you know run your house as if you're a dictator, don't run your you know your work or your department as if you're a dictator. No, Ma, you must consult them, you must consult them because when you consult people that are has robustly said that people never seek advice, meaning seek consultation without being guided to the best possibility available to them, meaning it leads you to a better decision. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam also, he would consult the companions, we learned that when I know the masjid was built in Medina and people would come for Salah. At the
beginning there was no other than so a lot of times, you know, people would come early or they would come late and they would miss the Salah. So there was, you know discussion about how is it that people should be called to prayer. So some said let's do what the Christians do. Meaning let's use bells than other suggested No, let's use a horn like Jews. So people suggested different things in our model dilla horn who said, Why don't you send a man to announce the time for prayer? So the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm like that, and he told me that Oh, but I'll get up and give the call to prayer. Meaning make the announcement to prayer. So this is how the other man began. Imagine
and those who when tyranny strikes them, they defend themselves waiting they don't just keep suffering that okay, you hit me on my right cheek now hit me on my left cheek also know they defend themselves. And the retribution for an evil act is an even one is an evil one like it. But whoever pardons and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from a law. Indeed, he does not like wrongdoers, and whoever Avengers himself after having been wronged, those have not upon them any cause for blame. So remember, patience doesn't mean that you just put up with the oppression and you accept it. No, patience means that you try to change your situation. And part of patience is also to
forgive the oppressor to forgive them. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala has guaranteed reward for those who forgive in these verses reward is guaranteed for who those who forgive, and we learn a lower zoa gela or for when you have Bula foo that Allah subhanaw taala is ever forgiving and he loves to forgive. So what should we do? We ask Allah to forgive us. So we should also show forgiveness to people. When you forgive people. You're actually helping yourself. It might feel like you are accepting the oppression No, you're not accepting it wrong is wrong, it will never be called right? But when you forgive someone, you are freeing yourself and you are inviting the mercy of
Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Be merciful, you will receive mercy forgive and Allah will forgive you. I shall do more on how
The Prophet sallallahu already said I've never took revenge on his own behalf
unless something that Allah had forbidden was transgressed in which event, he took revenge for it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So this shows us that when it's a personal matter, yes, you forgive and you don't take revenge and that is excellent. But when it's a public matter, or a religious matter where other people are being affected or could get affected, then we see that the way the Prophet sallallaahu Ernest and was that he took disciplinary action in nema subido, Allah larina le Muna nurse, the cause is only against the ones who wronged the people and tyrannies upon the earth without right those will have a painful punishment. So those who commit oppression, then
such people are worthy of of, of being punished, that revenge be taken from them. And Allah subhanaw taala will also take revenge from such people we learn Hadees that Allah gives rest bite to the oppressor, but when he lays his hand upon him, he does not let him go stuffit Allah and people who are loom emammal loom a leader who is oppressive, such a person will not even receive the intercession of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam on the Day of Judgment, and whoever is patient and forgives, indeed, that is of the matters requiring determination, being this is not something that the ordinary people can do, and he whom Allah sends a stray for him, there is no protector beyond
him. And he will see the wrongdoers when they see the punishment saying is there for return to the former World anyway? Meaning can we get just one more chance and you will see them being exposed to the fire humbled from humiliation, looking from behind a covert glance, meaning they'll be afraid to even look at the punishment, embarrassed to even look up. And those who had believed will say, indeed, the true losers are the ones who lost themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. unquestionably, the wrongdoers are in an enduring punishment. So real losers are those who put themselves and their families in loss. And this is, you know, greater injustice, that
neither does a person do what is right themselves, nor did they allow or teach their family. Sometimes people stop their own family members from doing what is right, so many women Subhanallah their husbands don't allow them to wear hijab, their husbands don't allow them to study a quarter on their husbands don't allow them, you know, to do what is right, Allahu Akbar. Any one is that you're putting yourself in loss. But now you're also forcing other people. This is greatest loss. Wilma, Canada hoomin Alia I am sorona hoomin dunlea. And they will not be for them any allies to aid them other than Allah. And whoever Allah sends us to pray for him, there is no way respond to your Lord
is the G boullier have become before a day comes from Allah, of which there is no repelling, no refuge Will you have that day, nor for you? Will there be any denial, meaning that no one can change your situation or help you so do something today, make use of your life make use of your time, because death is coming, the day of judgment is coming result is coming for in Urdu. But if they turn away, then we have not sent you Oh prophet over them as a guardian upon you is only the duty of notification. And indeed, when we let men taste Mercy from Us, he rejoices in it he gets so happy, so arrogant. But if evil afflicts him for what his hands have put forth, then indeed man is
ungrateful. He blames Allah and he begins to despair. Lila, he will cause somewhat he will have to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills, He gives to whom He wills, female children, and he gives to whom He wills, males, or he makes them both males and females and he renders home He wills barren, indeed, he is knowing and competent, any This is completely Allah subhanaw taala his decision. Notice over here that girls daughters are mentioned before sons. Why? As if people's attention is being drawn to the blessing of having daughters, that daughters should be cherished, they should be looked after they should be cared for not buried alive
or looked down upon or treated differently. But unfortunately, this is common till today that in religious, knowledgeable families, even girls are mistreated, that you know, they're treated as if you know you're going to leave us very soon anyway. So why should we bother investing in your education? Why should we bother spending money on you stuff and Allah, we learned that I should have done more on her. She's she mentioned about how a woman came begging for food. And I shall do more on her only had a few dates with her. So she gave this woman three dates. So this woman, she gave one date each to two of her daughters, and the third date she was going to eat herself but her
daughters began looking at her. So she divided her date into half
gave each daughter one piece, and the mother did not have anything herself. So Pamela, and I shall deliver on her mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu earlier said him that, that this was amazing. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever it is tested that, and he that whoever is good to his daughters, then there will be Citroen Mina now, that they will be a shield for him from the fire, meaning when a person
that when a person, you know, raises daughters spends on them, is good to them, raises them, well, educates them, etc, then this will be a means of protection for him from the fire. And it is not for any human being, that Allah should speak to him except by revelation, or from behind a partition, or that he sends a messenger to reveal by his permission, what He wills, indeed, he is most high and wise. So this is the fact that in this life, in this world, Allah, Allah does not speak to any human being directly. And if Allah subhanaw taala, spoke to the prophets, that was also that that was always through Ye, or from behind a screen was RS and did not see Allah when the Prophet sallallahu
rosena was taken on Mirage, he did not see Allah. No, he did not. And the fact is, that, in this world communication is only through revelation. But remember, on the day of judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will directly speak to us. In a hadith we learn that no doubt, each one of you will stand before Allah, and there will be neither a curtain nor an interpreter between him and Allah had these we learned there will be none among you, but his Lord will speak to him, and there will be no interpreter between them, nor a screen to screen him. And this is a conversation that he has, we should look forward to, but we should be really afraid about that. What is my lord going to say to
me? What is he going to ask me about? How am I going to answer him? What am I going to say? How am I going to justify my laziness and my wrongdoing?
And thus, and thus we have revealed to you an inspiration of our command, you did not know what is the book or what is faith, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu son was being told over here, you had no idea about what the Quran is what a man is. But we made it a light by which we guide whom we will have our servants, and indeed, oh prophets of Allah, who already know send them, you guide to a straight path, the path of Allah, to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, unquestionably, to Allah do all matters, evolve, all matters and up with him, they returned to him. So the final decision will be his. Here, the blessing of the Quran is mentioned that there was a
time when you did not know what a treasure This is, you did not even know this book existed, that this book was going to be given to you. You thought Yes, there are people who, you know, and if we relate this to ourselves, you know, there are people we used to think that yes, there are people who, you know, memorize the Quran, who recite the Quran, or who read the translation, and and hamdulillah Allah has given us the opportunity, the ability to recite some of it, to memorize some of it, to learn some of it. This is truly a gift, era hammer in or a guidance from Allah subhanaw taala a blessing that we need to cherish and we need to be grateful for and you see, the Quran is
called rule over here. And what is rule soul spirits? Why is it called spirit or soul because it brings life to the heart, it keeps the heart blooming, just like spring does. You see? A rule is a source of life for a body and the Quran is a source of life for the heart. It turns ignorance into awareness. So, when people learn the Quran, it is as if they have come to life. It is as if they have woken up it is as if they have become a new human being. Malik even dinar would say all people have the Quran. What has the Quran cultivated in your hearts? Meaning what has the Quran planted in your hearts? Because the Quran is the spring of the heart, just as rain is to the soil meaning when
when it is springtime and rain, rain falls what happens to the soil? Does it remain barren and empty? No something grows something blooms, there are flowers there is color there is beauty. So we need to think what has the Quran cultivated in my heart? How has the Quran revived my heart? What has blossomed and bloomed in my heart? Is there love for Allah? Is there love for his book? Are there any good deeds that I am doing now? Has the Quran made me better? You see the spring season completely changes
The landscape, the colors the variety of plants, and you can see it these days. right there's growth everywhere The ground is full The earth is full trees are full. So we need to see how has the Quran filled me and has it changed me for the better? Am I blooming? Am I blossoming with the hurun
abou sorry the hood that he said that he asked the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that Yasuda Allah advise me and he said you must remember Allah and recite the Quran for it as a source of mercy for you in the sky, and a means of your good mentioned in the earth. And this is why we should also make the Dora Allahumma in the Duca webinar, abdic wobbu ematic Nasir the medic Maldon via Whoa, como gardinen vehicle doc long Dora, at the end of which we say that antigen, Anna, Robbie or Colby that Oh Allah make the Quran the spring time of my heart, meaning that when we spend more time with the Quran, our actions should change our lives should become transformed. Surah zakharov Bismillah al
Rahman al Rahim, how Meem wolky tamil movie in by the clear book, indeed, we have made it an Arabic Quran that you might understand, meaning only Arabic has the capacity to convey the Quran. This is the language the medium that Allah subhanaw taala chose, and indeed it is in the mother of the book with us exalted and full of wisdom, then, should we turn the message away? disregarding you, because you are transgressing people? No, we will tell you, even if you don't want to know. But that is set by Allah if the Quran was taken away, because the first people of this oma rejected it, they would have been destroyed. So it is Allah's mercy, that he continued to, to reveal the Quran on people
even though they rejected it. Welcome, oh, salami, newbiggin, fil a welline. And how many a prophet we sent among the former peoples, but there would not come to them a prophet except that they used to ridicule him, and we destroyed greater than them in striking power. And the example of the former peoples has proceeded. And if you should ask them, who has created the heavens in the earth, they will surely say they were created by the Exalted in Might, the knowing, the one who has made for you the earth, a bed and made for you upon it roads, that you might be guided, you can travel place to place, and who sends down rain from the sky, in measured amounts. Even our bear said that he did not
send water down from the sky, like he sent it down at the flood of new hardy center. Because if that would happen, that water is falling down from the sky, you know in, in, in unlimited quantities, then what would happen, life would be impossible, and we revive there by a dead land. Thus Will you be brought forth meaning after a rain you will also come back to life and who created the species all of them and has made for you of ships and animals those which you mount that you may settle yourselves upon their backs and then remember the favor of your Lord when you have settled upon them and say sober Hannah lady is a hot Alana Heather warmer canola who mockery Nene? What in Isla Bina
lemon Cali Boone Exalted is He who has subjected this to us, and we could not have otherwise subdued it, and indeed we to our Lord will surely return. So this shows us that when we also travel, especially when we sit in a vehicle, whether it is a car or a train or a bike, what should we do? We should make draw, and we should say this one, because this is what the prophet sallallahu wasallam said. We learned that once our little dilla horn who he he said on his ride, and when he placed his foot in the stirrup, he said, Bismillah three times Bismillah Bismillah Bismillah. And then he said Alhamdulillah, and then he said, This da Subhana Allah, the Sahaba Elena, and then he said,
Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah they said, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And then he said, Subhana Allah in the cuddle Welcome to NFC. Fulfill Li for in the Himalaya, through the mobile illa Anta glories to you, indeed, I have wronged myself, so forgive me, for indeed none forgive sins except you. And then he smiled. So he was asked that Why did you do this? He said, This is what I saw the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm doing meaning he sat on his animal in the same way. He said the same things. And then he smiled. Why did he smile? Because indeed, your Lord is very pleased with his worshiper, when he says that Oh my Lord, forgive me my sins indeed, no one
other than you forgive sins. So when we travel also, we should glorify and praise Allah and we should seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. And remember, travel should cause us to reflect and these days especially every single time that we step out of the house, when death
Seems ever so certain, any, it's it's so frightening every single time that you step out of your house, we should think about our return to Allah. Travel should remind us of our journey through life of the transitory nature of this life, that just as we head towards a certain destination, we are also moving towards the end of our lives, that one day, we will depart this world and we will return to Allah. So we are in fact, travelers, we are not meant to stay here in this life. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Be in this world as if you were a stranger, or a traveler. So when you're traveling, the focus is not on the journey itself. The focus is always on the
destination. Likewise, our purpose in life should not become this world itself. We should not forget the destination. When you sit in a plane, you don't start making yourself at home in your seat. No, you're just waiting to get off. And this is why in this life also our focus should be on our return to Allah, but they have attributed to him from his servants a portion indeed, man is clearly ungrateful, or has he taken out of what he has created daughters have chosen for you, and chosen you for having sons. And when one of them has given good tidings of that which he attributes to the Most Merciful In comparison, his face becomes dark and he suppresses grief meaning the people of Makkah,
the Arabs, many of them hated having daughters. Yet they would ascribe daughters to Allah, meaning they would say that angels are Allah's daughters. So is one brought up in ornaments, while being during conflict on evidence, attribute it to Allah, meaning this is what you attribute to Allah, and they have made the angels who are servants of the Most Merciful females? Did they witness their creation? Have they seen their bodies are they actual female, their testimony will be recorded, and they will be questioned, and they save the Most Merciful had willed, We would not have worshipped them, they have of that no knowledge, they are about falsifying This is a false argument, or have we
given them a book before the Quran to which they're adhering, we have given them no proof. Rather, they say, indeed, we found our fathers upon a religion, and we are in their footsteps rightly guided meaning they're only blindly following their forefathers. And similarly, we did not send before you any Warner into a city, except that it's affluent said, Indeed, we found our fathers upon a religion and we are in their footsteps following and they had no proof besides that, each Warner said, even if I brought you a better guidance than that religion upon which you found your fathers, they said, Indeed, we in that with which you were sent our disbelievers we're not going to believe in you, fun
to come namun home. So we took group so we took retribution from them. So see, how was the end of the deniers and mentioned when Ibrahim said to his father and his people, indeed I am dissociated from that which you worship Ibrahim, right? I said, I'm did not blindly follow his forefathers, except for he who created me and indeed he will guide me if he created me. I'm going to take his guidance. And he made it a word remaining among his descendants, that they might return to it, meaning Ibrahim artists that I'm believed until hate and he established though hate and now he's an example, that he's a role model for all people who wish to worship only Allah. However, I gave
enjoyment to these meaning the people of Makkah and their forefathers until their came to them the truth and a clear messenger. But when the truth came to them, they said, this is magic, and indeed, we are concerning a disbelievers. And they said, Why was this Quran not sent down upon a great man from one of the two cities? They said, Why Mohammed sallallahu? where it is and and why not some rich person of influence from Makkah, or from PA, if it is said, do they distribute the mercy of your Lord? It is we who have apportioned among them their livelihood, in the life of this world, and have raised some of them above others in degrees of rank, that they may make use of one another for
service, but the mercy of your Lord is better than whatever they accumulate. So here in this ayah, we see that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who decides who should get what people don't get to decide that. And Allah subhanaw taala has kept differences in people how that He has given more power, more status, more wealth, more popularity, more abilities to some individuals and not to others. And this is not a sign of Allah subhanaw taala is approval with some and disapproval of some No, Allah subhanaw taala has made this division based on his wisdom. We learn in a hadith that Indeed Allah has divided amongst to your manners, just as he divided amongst you your provisions,
meaning he decides who should get how much and there is a wisdom. There's a reason behind that. And what is that reason? Let's see, if every person had everything that they needed, then what would happen, people would not be a need
of one another, by placing our needs in others, Allah subhanaw taala has created a dependency within us, there's a healthy dependency, we need one another. Because if we did not need one another, we would abandon each other, and that would, you know, harm us. So we are in need of each other. And this is also a test that how is it that we are going to treat one another? That How is it that we're going to work with one another? Are we going to cheat? Are we going to cut corners? Are we going to be honest? Are we going to be oppressive? Are we going to be rude? What are we doing? A Buddha rhodiola Horne who mentioned that once there was an argument between him and another man whose
mother was a non Arab, and in that argument without aldila horn, who, you know, he said some bad names to to the other person's mother. And this is something that you know, people do because they're used to it. So the man complained to the Prophet sallallahu, earning seven. And the Prophet sallallahu already said, I'm asked a Buddha, did you abuse so and so a Buddha said yes. He said, Did you call his mother bad names? He said, Yes, I did. He said, you still have the traits of joy helliya in you, meaning this is not something that befits a believer, a believer does not talk like this. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that they meaning your slaves or servants, they're
your brothers, and Allah has put them under your command. So the one under whose hand Allah has put his brother should feed him of what he eats, and give him dresses of what he wears, and should not ask him to do a thing beyond his capacity. And if at all, he asks him to do a hard task, then he should help him in that. So if Allah subhanaw taala has put you in any capacity above other people, this is not because you're the best. No, this is your test will Allah or your corner nurse or ohmmeter wahida. And if it were not that the people would become one community of disbelievers. We would have made for those who disbelieve in the Most Merciful for their houses, ceilings and
stairways of silver upon which to mount meaning the last panel tada would have given them a lot in this world. But then what would happen, people would think that not believing in Allah is the right thing to do, because people get so easily influenced by money, and for their houses, doors and couches of silver upon which to recline and gold ornament. But all that is not but the enjoyment of worldly life, so pound Allah, no matter how much a person has of this world, eventually it is going to come to an end. And the hereafter with your Lord is for the righteous woman er, sure and victory, man, and whoever is blinded from remembrance of the Most Merciful, we appoint for him a devil, and
he is to him a companion stuff at a law. And he shall upon then becomes his guide, his companion, his friend, of who have the person who neglects the remembrance of Allah, this is his punishment. This means that the angels leave this person and shaitan draws near this person, and then what happens and indeed the devils avert them from the way of guidance, while they think that they are rightly guided staford Allah, so then what happens is to the vicar of Allah becomes even more difficult for such a person. And they don't even realize that what they're doing is wrong. So the shell team, the devil is friends, they take them further and further into error. But the person who
remembers Allah, then remember, Allah subhanaw taala helps him the angels help him. Remember that Vicar is your fortification against shaitan? Yeah, hey Allah, his salon. He gathered the Bani Israel and he addressed them. And one thing that he said in that address was that I command you to remember a lot a lot. Because the example of the person who remembers Allah a lot is like a person who is being chased by an enemy, the enemy is right behind him. And what happens, this person then comes into a fortress, which is very, very strong, so he gets inside of it, and now he is safe. And just like that, as long as a person is remembering Allah, they are in a fortress, they are protected and
who is that enemy? It is the shaitaan so every time you leave the vicar of Allah shaitaan is able to keep company with you, he's able to attack you he's able to put waswas in you so it is necessary that we fortify ourselves with the the code of Allah and the decree of Allah includes what it includes the recitation of the Quran, it includes the vicar in the morning and in the evening. at an end it includes liquid throughout the day. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there is no one among you, but there has been appointed for him, one companion from among the jinn, and another companion from among the angels. in Hades we learned that when a person goes to bed, an
angel and a devil both rushed to him, the angel says, end your day with good and the shaitan says, end your day with evil. So if the person remembers Allah until sleep overtakes him beating he's making the curse upon Allah 100 Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Akbar.
Making liquid and while making liquid, the person falls asleep. Then the angel expels the shade plan and spends the night watching over him. And when he wakes up, an angel and a devil hasten towards him, the angel sets says, start your day with good and the shaitan says, start your day with evil. So if a person praises Allah than the angel expels the shaitaan and spends the day watching over him, sopran Allah, but if we fail to remember Allah, then who are we giving space to? Who are we allowing next to us in our company is shaitan What are ya to Billa so fortify yourself with the vicar of Allah. In another Hadees we learned that whoever says La ilaha illAllah Hola, sharika. They
will will call Allah who will handle you he will you meet? Well, who are Alicia and Cody 10 times after Maghrib then Allah subhanaw taala will send for him protectors, angels to guard him from shaitan until he reaches the morning, meaning then you're protected against a plan until the morning. So remember when a person makes Vicar of Allah, then the hold and effect of shaitan decreases, it weakens. But when a person fails to remember Allah, then shaitan only gets stronger. And as long as you remember Allah, Allah remembers you. And this is why we need to remember Allah, individually but also collectively, as groups, meaning in your family also as your home. Don't just
focus on your own recitation or your own Vicar or your own Salah also worship together had either Jia Anna, until when he comes to us at judgment, he says to his companion, or I wish there was between me and you the distance between the East and West, how wretched a companion staford Allah, any person will say to that shape on clean that shaitan friend, that Trayvon companion that I wish I never knew you. I wish I never saw you. I wish you had never been with me. So it is important that we ask ourselves who is it that we're spending time with? What is the first thing we do when we wake up? Is it the phone? Who is it? What is it that we mentioned? When a and Pharrell Coolio my alarm
tone? and never will it benefit you that day when you have wronged that you are all sharing in the punishment? That Will you make the deaf here or guide the blind or he who is in clear error and whether or not we take you away in death indeed we will take retribution upon them or whether or not we show you that which we have promised them indeed we are Perfect in Ability for STEM sick billary who here a lake. So add here to that which is revealed to you hold on to the Quran, remain connected with it. Keep making the kind of Allah fortify yourself, don't get distracted by one thing or another. Because you see, these are all attempts of shaitan. Like for example, when we wake up, the
first thing we want to do is check our phone. When you start checking your phone, what are you doing, you're failing to make the could of Allah. And the more time you spend with your phone, the less time you're spending in the vicar of Allah. So for some sake, hold on to Islam sack is to hold on to something firmly in one's head, and he hold it firmly in your head. So we need to see what is firm in our hands these days. Is it the most half? Or is it the phone? First I'm sick Believe it or here he like in Carlos Laughlin musta came indeed you are on a straight path. And indeed it is a remembrance for you. This Quran is a victory for you a source of great honor. Because sometimes we
feel that if we're spending time with the Quran, we're missing out. No, you're not missing out. It is a source of great honor for you. When you call make an altar for your people, and you all are going to be questioned. And ask those we said before you have Our Messengers have we made besides the Most Merciful day teas to be worshipped? And certainly we did send Moosa with our science to figure out in his establishment. And he said, Indeed, I am the messenger of the Lord of the worlds. But when he brought them our signs at once they laughed at them. And we showed them not a sign except that it was greater than its sister greater than the sign before it. And we sees them with
affliction, that perhaps they might return to faith. And they said to Moosa, every single time that oh magician, Invoke for us your Lord, by what he has promised you, indeed, we will be guided meaning because of your position, you call upon Allah and if he removes this affliction from us, then we will believe. But when we remove from them the affliction at once they broke their word, they did the very things they promised to leave, and for their own called out among his people. He said, Oh my people, does not the kingdom of Egypt belong to me? Am I not the king and these rivers flowing beneath me? What a lie, then do you not see? Or am I not better than this one who is insignificant
and hardly makes himself clear, meaning he was making fun of Mossad he's set up because most artists that I'm good at time stumble in his speech. So he made fun of him. That look he's in significant and he is from the bunny is a slave nation.
And he hardly makes himself clear Where's Mozart isn't I was actually very clear in his message. He was very, very clear in his speech he made there are rubbish Rahi sodbury, where suddenly every workflow could utter melissani. So musasa was clear in his message Allah subhanaw taala gave him silcon and will been a clear authority, clear evidences, but fit our own field to see that he failed to acknowledge that, then why have there not been placed upon him bracelets of gold? Or come with him the angels in conjunction meaning if he's really the Messenger of God, How come he's so poor? How come he's not wearing a lot of gold? How come he's not impressive? How come there's no, you
know, angels around him. So he bluffed his people, he tricked them, and they obeyed Him. Indeed, they were themselves the people defiantly disobedient of Allah. And when they angered us, fella, as a foreigner, we took retribution from them and drowned them all. And we made them a precedent, and an example for the later peoples. And when the son of muddy and was presented as an example, immediately your people laughed aloud, the people of Makkah laughed out loud, and they said, Are our gods better? Or is he they did not present the comparison except for mere argument. But in fact, there are people prone to dispute. So there's a certain incident behind this once the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam said that nothing that is worshipped besides Allah
has good in it to me, there is nothing that is worship besides Allah, except that it is void of higher. So the mercy came, they said, Oh, what about the son of Maria, meaning a Sally is that um, he's also worship besides Allah, that means there is no good in him. So this IO was revealed that they said this, not because they were seeking truth. They said this to belittle the truth. And likewise, there are questions that people you know, come up with today, not out of genuine curiosity, but simply to mock at the truth. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam warned us He said, No people go astray after having followed right guidance, but those who indulge in disputes, and
then he recited this idea, so refrain from arguing for no reason. And if you have a question, ask but from a place of genuine curiosity, not to mock, he started his salon was not but a servant, upon whom We bestowed favor, and we made him an example for the children of Israel he and if we will, we could have made instead of you angels succeeding one another on the earth, meaning what do you think of yourself, unless Pandora can replace you? And indeed, he saw this and I will be assigned for knowledge of the hour, meaning when he will return that will be assigned at the hour is very near. So be not in doubt of it, and follow me This is a straight path, and never let shaitan avert you.
Indeed he is to you a clear enemy. Allah consol clarifies the matter of reciting his Sunnah. And when he started his sin, I'm brought clear proves he said, I have come to you with wisdom, and to make clear to you some of that over which you defer Sofia Allah and obey me. Indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. This is a straight path. So this was the message that he saw. He said, I'm here. He never told people to worship him. What happened then, but the denominations from among them deferred and separated. So woe to those who have wronged from the punishment of a painful day, meaning people differed amongst themselves and they came up with these false beliefs regarding
resigning. Are they waiting except for the hour to come upon them suddenly, while they perceive not a healer uyama even Babu homely Berliner I do in little motor cane, close friends that day will be enemies to each other except for the righteous. You see, a friend is supposed to be someone who supports you, someone who helps you in need, and if they leave you at a time when you're in difficulty, that means they're not really a friend. So real friendship is actually between people who fear Allah, it is between people who center whose cause reason for loving one another is Allah azzawajal. This is why the 13 they will remain friends with their friends in the Hereafter, they
will not become enemies to one another. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said he said the most firm handhold of a man is to love for Allah and to dislike also for the sake of Allah. Why? Because when you love someone for the sake of Allah, than the company of such people, increases you in a man because they love you for the sake of Allah, not for you. And this is why they will not hesitate to tell you when you're doing something wrong, to help you to to remind you and remember, a person in the hereafter will be with those whom he loves. A man came to the Prophet sallallahu earlier sentiment he said, O Messenger of Allah. What do you say about a man who loves some people but
cannot catch up with their good deeds, any he can never be?
like them because they're they're way better than him or he hasn't met them because they lived before him. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said him said everyone will be with those whom he loves. You see, there are people that we know off, right we admire them and we love them. And sometimes they also know us and they love us in return. And yes, this is very healthy because a lot minoo yeah leafa EULA for the believer loves and is loved. This is part of a man. And we see that there are many bonds between people, right people love each other for because they're married or because of family ties, or because you know, personalities just click right or you admire what they do. For
example, their performance, their their play sports really good, or the fact that they represent your country, etc. These are bonds, right? But remember the strongest bond that will outlast any other bond and that will survive any hurdle is the bond of loving one another for the sake of Allah zoologia. And if a person has not experienced this kind of love, they have not experienced the sweetness of faith, they have not actually enjoyed Amen.
And loving for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Remember, it is the fruit it is the byproduct of loving Allah, because when you love Allah, then you love everything that reminds you of Allah, that helps you know Allah better and worship Allah better, that is connected with worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. So loving someone for the sake of Allah means loving those who are on the path of Allah, which means loving the prophets of Allah and the angels of Allah, loving the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loving the righteous, the scholars, why? Because of their piety, because you see this love is because of the love of love of Allah. For example, we love Abu
Bakar Allahu anhu. Not because he gave us gifts, you know, because he helped us financially he gave us money. No, we love him because of his he man. We love him because of Allah azzawajal
and loving someone for the sake of Allah. This will be a source of honor on the Day of Judgment. Allah subhanaw taala will say on the Day of Judgment, amen. Mata ha buena be Jalali. Where are those people who loved one another because of my honor. Today I will give them shade.
And this is the day when there's no shade except my shade of a Muslim a hole and he said that I said tomorrow there will be a lot more on who? That by Allah. I love you for the sake of Allah. in me, Lu Hey buka fella, I love you for the sake of Allah. So more of that I'll do a lot more on who he drew him close. And he said What did you say? So he repeated himself. So morado de la hora. And who said that I heard the prophets of Allah who already said him said that those who love each other for the sake of Allah will be on podiums of light on the Day of Judgment, and they will be under the throne of Allah, on a day when there will be no shade, except the shade that Allah gives. So but wisdom
said that I left from that place and I came to Oh, by the oven summit, and I mentioned this Hadees to him. So he said, I heard the Prophet sallallahu. Urdu Selim say that Allah the Exalted says that my love is guaranteed for those who love one another for my sake, my love is guaranteed for those who spend on one another for my sake, my love is guaranteed for those who visit one another for my sake, they will be on podiums of light in the shade of the throne, when there will be no other shade besides it. So we should purify our love, we should purify our friendship, you know, if you really love someone, love them for the sake of Allah. And how do you do that, that you love them for their
piety, and which means that if you really love them, then you will do something to call them to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala so that they draw closer to Allah, right? They become a better servant to Allah, you will share the Quran with them, you will share good things with them. And I would encourage you that we have a few days left now in this program, people that you love, your good friends, your family, you know, your spouses, your children, people that you live with people that you work with, share this goodness with them, if you really love them, you want the best for them. And you want that that relationship that you have with them, you know lasts forever, but that
will only be if both of you are on the same page. Both of you have the same goal which is to please Allah subhanaw taala and how is it that we can learn how to please Allah subhanaw taala what will remind us what will teach us what will encourage us it is the book of Allah, so purify your love, strengthen your love, strengthen your friendship, by making it lilla and filler for the sake of Allah. You are a body
Such people will be told all my servants, no fear will there be concerning you this day nor will you grieve? Imagine, people are drowning in their sweat. And if you love someone for the sake of Allah, you are in sha Allah, on a podium of light, under the shade, in the shape of the throne of Allah under the throne of Allah, Allahu Akbar, no fear, no fear, no grief. But who are these people? You who believed in our verses, and were Muslims enter Paradise, you and your kinds delighted unto more as word you comb. And remember as wadge means spouses, it also means those who are like you, meaning those who are similar to you, who you work with, differ on you all will be delighted. So those who
love each other for the sake of Allah, our friends for the sake of Allah, they will stay together, circulated among them will be plates and vessels of gold, and they're in his, whatever the souls desire, and what delights the eyes, and he will abide there in eternally will until fee her Holly Dune, gold and silver dishes are mentioned here. And drinks and food is mentioned here. And the delight of the eyes, we learned that there will be a person in general who will wish to drink something. And the picture and the cup will come itself to him Subhanallah You don't even have to order it will come itself, what he'll call Jenna, and that is paradise which you are made to
inherit, why for what you used to do for you there in as much fruit from which you will eat. On the other hand, indeed, the criminals will be in the punishment of hell, abiding eternally, it will not be allowed to subside for them, and they they're in are in despair and despair is so painful. You see a blast is to despair, in such a way that makes a person completely silent. nothing left to say. And we did not wrong them. But it was they who were the wrong doers. And they will call Oh Malik. Let your Lord put an end to us just finish us terminate us. He will say indeed you will remain. We had certainly brought you the truth. But most of you to the truth, we're averse and we need to
examine our hearts that what is our attitude towards the truth? abramo ameron? Or have the device some affair? Do they have some way of escape? But indeed we are devising a plan? Or do they think that we hear not their secrets and their private conversations? Yes, we do. And our messengers are with them recording killam and Cathy been, say, if the Most Merciful had a son, then I would be the first of his worshipers exalted as the Lord of the heavens and the earth, Lord of the Throne above what they described. So the fact is that Allah has no son, no child, no equal, no partner, so leave them to converse vainly and amuse themselves until they meet their day, which they are promised. And
it is Allah, Who is the only day team that heaven and on the earth, the only day to meaning He is worthy of worship up in the skies and down here on Earth, and he is the wise the knowing what about aka lady, and bless it is he to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens of the earth, and whatever is between them, and with whom is knowledge of the hour, and to whom you will be returned. And those they invoke, besides Him do not possess power of intercession, but only those who testify to the truth can benefit and they know. So no one can intercede without the permission of Allah. And if you ask them who created them, they would surely say Allah, so how are they diluted? Well, clearly he
will be in the hula eco moolah, you may know and Allah acknowledges his saying, Who saying the saying of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his complaint that oh my lord indeed These are people who do not believe so what should you do first for her on home, so turn aside from them and say sell piece but they're going to no meaning don't get affected by what they say. distance yourself from them with peaceful words, and soon they will find out about what they deserve. salata Doohan, Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, how imeem by the clear book. Indeed, We sent it down during a blessing night. Indeed we were to warn mankind. Here. The Blessing at night is mentioned Laila Timo
Baraka, which is later to
the night of power. Why? Because this is the night in which the Quran was revealed. And it is Laila to mubaraka the blessing at night because it is the night in which the Quran was revealed and it is better than 1000 months as Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran. Remember the Quran is mobarak right? It is blessing it is full of Baraka. And this night in which the Quran was sent down
is also Mubarak it is full of Baraka. So the person who worships on the on this night Allahu Akbar, such a person will reap great benefits, great blessings. This is why seek this night how don't just wait for the signs to appear, no worship Allah subhanaw taala every single night of the last of the remaining nights of the month of Ramadan, exert yourself a great deal. That was the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this month has come to you and in there, and in it, there is a night that is better than 1000 months, whoever is deprived of it is deprived of all goodness, and no one is deprived of its goodness, except one who's truly deprived. So exert your effort, try hard sleep during the day, you know, do something during the day so that at night you're able to worship Allah subhanaw taala. And part of that worship should be that you pray the arm, you know tahajjud and then recite some Quran and also give sadaqa make Vicar and also because now you're with your family. also hold a gathering of meaning share something good with your family, because
this is also a way of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. One good thing that you have learned today, share that with your family tonight, so that in sha Allah, they will also do something good. And as a result of that you will increase in your hesa. net. And we'd heard that this night is called laya. Toma Baraka also because the angels descend on this night, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he described the night of power Laila to others. And he said in this night, there are more angels on earth than the number of pebbles. So imagine there's so many angels that are witnessing your deeds in sha Allah, your good deeds. Now these angels, what do you think? Aren't they going to
pray for you? Aren't they going to intercede for you allow a commodity fee? Hey, you've Rocco kulu amarin Hakeem, on that night is made distinct, every precise matter, meaning this is the night of the night of decrees. So this is why we should also make Dora Yes, we should engage in worship, but also make the call and write down things that you want to ask Allah subhanaw taala for, you know, get a book of the hours, you know, download an app in which all of these beautiful daughters of the Prophet sallallahu Urdu cinema recorded so that you don't miss out. You also ask Allah subhanaw taala for good for good things.
Remember that the decrees of Allah are written in four places, there are four records, one is lo heard mouthfuls, right, where 50,000 years before the creation was created, all of the decrees were written. Then there is the clear rumery which is Al Kitab battle. Maria, which is the decree of a person's life, which is written when when the child is in the womb of the mother. And then thirdly, there is the record which is called a doc Darrell heavily or sent away the annual decree and this is what is given to the angels are Laila to other meaning the angels are told are commanded on this night. This is what's going to happen. This is what you're supposed to do in the coming year. Who is
to die who is to get sick, who is to win or lose or earn, learn or forget something traveled somewhere or not traveled, go for Hajj or not eat, buy, sell everything that is given to the angels, and this is why we must make a lot of oil for ourselves that Allah decree what is best for us. And then finally, the fourth is stuck with a little yo me daily meaning the angels record our deeds every day. And this is also a record and it is recorded as we perform our deeds. So remember could Lucia in because everything is by decree, even in ability and intelligence, meaning every thing is decreed by Allah subhanaw taala and the decree of Allah is an unreal Hakeem. And he It is based on
his wisdom. Indeed we were to send a messenger around meta mill Robic as mercy from your Lord. Indeed he is the hearing the knowing. Remember, Laila The other is the same night on which not only the Quran was revealed, but previously, all the scriptures were revealed in Ramadan, also, in Laila, Timo Baraka, Lord of the heavens and the earth, and that between them, if you would be certain there is no deity except Him He gives life and causes death. He is your Lord and the Lord have your first forefathers but they are in doubt amusing themselves. Then watch for the day when the sky will bring a visible smoke Allahu Akbar, what an important night but unfortunately, a lot of people don't
realize so they spend the night just wasting it away, eating this going out, you know watching stuff, talking away. These are precious moments, every single moment is precious.
So they are amusing themselves but this is not going to last forever because the signs of the hour going to appear very soon.
Have them is the visible smoke covering the people. This is a painful punishment. Our beloved and Mr. Abdullah had been our best for the long run who
he mentioned. So Abdullah Abdullah Hart, who not sure which are the light is, but he mentioned that this smoke was actually the result of the famine that the people of Makkah experienced because when they refuse to obey the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, the Prophet sallallahu aurizon may draw against them. So they were stricken with famine and fatigue, so much so that they ate even bones. And a man would look towards the sky and imagine seeing something like smoke between him and the sky, because of extreme fatigue. So this is the Doohan but we also learn in Hades that a Doohan, a certain Smoke will appear very close to the Day of Judgment. So when that will appear, people will
say Our Lord removed from us the tournament. Indeed, we are believers. But how will there be for them a reminder at that time, it's too late, and there had come to them a clear messenger. Then they turned away from him and said, he was taught and is a madman. Indeed, we will remove the tournament for a little, and this happened with the people of Makkah, their famine was removed, and they were given reign and blessings. But what happened? Indeed, you disbelievers will return to disbelief, but this is not going to last forever. The day we will strike with the greatest assault indeed we will take retribution and we had already tried before them the people of our own and they're came to them
a Noble Messenger Masada has said I'm saying, render to me the servants of Allah. Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger and saying be not arrogant with Allah. Indeed, I have come to you with clear authority, and indeed I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me. But if you do not believe me, then leave me alone. And finally, he called to his Lord, that these were criminal people. Allah said, then set out with my servants by night indeed you are to be pursued and leave the sea in stillness, meaning leave it as is don't bother to close it after you have crossed it. Indeed, they're an army to be drowned. And what happened after that, how much they left behind
have gardens and springs and crops and noble sights and comfort wearing they were amused thus and we cause to inherit it another people alone talk about everything was left behind, and the heaven and earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved. No one felt pity for these criminals. They weren't missed stuff at Ulla. The thing is, that the earth the ground, on which you worship Allah also loves you. Which means that when you stop worshipping Allah, it misses you remember the member, the the, the stamp, on which the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, would stand and address people. When it was replaced. That stump it it wept and wailed, meaning these things also, they begin to love you when
you worship Allah. But when people commit for sad on Earth, they commit corruption on Earth, when they leave the earth, neither the earth cries upon them, nor the sky, meaning they are actually relieved that these oppressors are removed. And we certainly Save the Children of Islam, from the humiliating torment from fit our own Indeed, he was an arrogant one among the transgressors. And we certainly chose them by knowledge over all the world's alesse proton arrays, those weak and oppressed people. Why because of their knowledge, and we gave them of signs that in which there was a clear trial. Indeed, these disbelievers are saying, there is not but our first death and we will
not be resurrected, then bring back our forefathers if you should be truthful. Are they better meaning they think so highly of themselves? Are they better are the people of dilbar, who were ancient Yemeni kings, and those before them? We destroyed them, for indeed they were criminals, and we did not create the heavens and earth and that between them in play. This is not a place of entertainment. We did not create them except in truth, but most of them do not know in Nyoman Firstly, me a call to whom a Jew marine. Indeed, the day of judgment is the appointed time for them all the day, when no relation will avail a relation at all, nor will they be helped, except those
believers on whom Allah has mercy. Indeed, he is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful, Allah is Allah Aziz or Rahim,
inertia giornata zacco. Indeed, the tree of the comb is food for the sinful like murky oil. It will boil within their bellies like the boiling of scalding water, it will be commanded, seize Him and drag him into the midst of the Hellfire, then pour over his head from the torment of scalding water. It will be set taste indeed, you are the author.
entered the noble This is what you believed about yourself that you are very respectable and very honorable and to high and to and to great to worship Allah in the head Mr. Quantum beaten tone, indeed this is what you use to dispute. Indeed the righteous will be in a secure place. Look at Jenna, how it has been described Muhammad amin is secure place within gardens and springs, because you see security is a blessing. In fact, without security, you cannot enjoy anything. Wearing garments of fine silk and brocade facing each other. Thus, and we will marry them to fair women with large beautiful eyes because no one will be single and Jana, they will call they're in for every
kind of fruit safe and secure again, safety is mentioned, especially safety when it comes to eating. And this is something that we can relate with. Very, very well today. So panela someone even when you're buying food from the grocery store, you have your fears. You have your apprehensions, right, but what if the virus is on this apple that I'm picking a look at? How much are you going to clean? How much are you going to wash your hands, this lack of common lack of security, this, this is agonizing. It's truly agonizing. So we should really repent to Allah and beg Allah that Allah give us amen again. And this is a reminder that real Amman, real security is only and only in Jannah.
Allah subhanaw taala is a man, the giver of security. So we should call upon Him, we should ask him to give us a man.
And you see especially when it comes to food, we eat with apprehension, right? The fear of the calories or the heartburn or the bill that we have to pay or the stomach issues or the shortage of food or the next grocery trip trip that we have to make. But people in genda they will call they're in for every kind of fruit safe and secure. May Allah give us the fruits of jedna layer the corner fee hell mode they will not taste death they're in except the first death any there's no death now in Jana, and there is no sleep even in Jenna and he will have protected them from the punishment of Hellfire meaning people will not need to sleep. So they will not be overcome by sleep. If they want
to rest and take a nap any of course, that's a luxury so why not as bounty from your Lord? That is what is the great attainment and indeed we have ease the Quran in your language in your tongue that they may be reminded. So this shows us that the haoran is easy in a lot of complicated book a philosophy that is above and beyond the the average person No, it is so relatable. It's reminders are so beautiful. So watch indeed they are watching for your end, meaning they're also watching. So you also wait that who is ultimately successful. subroto jatiya Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. How mean? The revelation of the book is from Allah, the Exalted in Might the wise indeed within the
heavens and earth are Signs for the believers and in the creation of yourselves and what he disperses of moving creatures are Signs for people who are certain in faith and in the alternation of night and day, and then what Allah sends down from the sky of provision and gives life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness. And in his directing of the winds are Signs for people who reason. So here, signs of Allah subhanaw taala has greatness and his oneness are mentioned. The fact that he has created the skies in the earth, He has created people and animals the night and the day, the rain that he sends down the girls, all of this is pointing towards what these are the verses of
Allah which we recite to you in truth, they point to Allah's oneness, His perfection, then in what statement after Allah and His verses will they believe, meaning what will move them is this if this Quran doesn't war to every sinful liar, who hears the verses of Allah recited to him, then persists, arrogantly as if he had never heard them, so give him tidings of a painful punishment, hear tidings of a painful punishment is being given to who the person who is sinful, and is a liar, who hears the verses of Allah. But then he goes on, pretending and living as if he never heard a thing, meaning he arrogantly rejects them. And he does not change his way at all. While you're here, the Billa and
this is something that we need to think about also, that when we hear when we learn what happens to us, and when he knows anything of our verses, he takes them in ridicule if he learns anything of the Koran minister, market, the Quran, those will have a humiliating punishment before them as hell and what they had earned will not avail them at all, nor what they had taken besides Allah as allies and they will have a great punishment.
This Quran is guidance and those who have disbelieved in the verses of their Lord will have a painful punishment of foul nature. It is Allah who subjected to you the sea, so that ships may sail upon it by his command, and that you may seek of his bounty, you may travel to places and perhaps you will be grateful, maybe Are you going to be grateful, and he has subjected to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, all from him. Indeed in that are Signs for people who give thought, say to those who have believed that they should forgive those who expect not the days of Allah Allahu Akbar, forgive people who don't believe in the Hereafter, why forgive them,
because this forgiveness will benefit you. So that he may recommend some people for what they used to earn, leave the recompense to Allah, whoever does a good deed, it is for himself. And forgiving people is also a good deed, you will benefit yourself and whoever does evil, it is against the self meaning meaning he will suffer because of it, then to your Lord, you will be returned. And we did certainly give the children of Israel the Scripture and judgment and Prophethood and we provided them with good things in this life and preferred them over the world's and we gave them clear proofs of the matter of religion. And they did not differ except after knowledge had come to them out of
jealous animosity between themselves. Indeed your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ. Then we put to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on an ordained way on the Shetty era, concerning the matter of religion. So follow it and do not follow the inclinations of those who do not know meaning the religion that you have is from Allah, ordained by him. So follow that don't follow the desires of people. Why? Because indeed, they will never avail you against Allah at all. And indeed, the wrongdoers are allies of one another, but Allah is the Protector of the righteous. So never feel alone and afraid.
This Quran is enlightenment for mankind, and guidance and mercy for people who are certain in faith. So this shows is that live call me You can own for those who have your pain, then this Quran will enlighten them, it will be a source of guidance and mercy for them a healing for them? Or do those who commit evils think we will make them like those who have believed and unrighteous deeds, that we will make them equal in their life and their death. Evil is that which they judge, they can never be the same. And this is so clear, that there's two completely different ways of living two completely different paths. And therefore, the destinations are also completely different. We learned that for
a living, he would worship through the night. And he would say that I wish I knew which of the two groups I belong to Allahu Akbar. One is a group of people who believe and do righteous deeds, and the other is of those who commit evil, both will not be the same in the Hereafter, they will have different results. So this is why this is called the idea that makes worshipers cry, because no one knows what and they will have. And Allah created the heavens and earth and truth and so that every soul maybe recompense for what it has earned, and they will not be wronged. Have you not seen He who has taken as his God, His own desire? Stop it Allah, He is led by his desire, meaning he's a slave
of worship or of his desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge. Meaning even though this person has knowledge has knowledge has not helped him and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision a veil. So who will guide him after a law, then will you not be reminded? And this shows us very clearly, that we must not be a slave to our desires. Even our boss said wherever the desire of the knifes as mentioned in the Quran, it has been condemned, meaning it has never been mentioned in a positive way. This is why whenever you are in doubt, meaning you have two options before you you don't know whether to do this or to do that, then we'll have people will
not be set that goal with that which your knifes does not like, meaning go with that which are novices least inclined to why because that will be the better option. So, Sahara two three, he would say that your desires your disease, if you oppose it, then then you will be cured. So we should not follow our desire blindly. And they say there is not but but and they say there is not but our worldly life we die and live and this is why some people their ultimate goal is what to satisfy their desires here, and nothing destroys us except time and they have of that no knowledge they're only assuming. And when our Verses are recited to them as clear evidences. Their argument is only
that they say bring back our forefathers if you should be truthful, while the resurrection is going to happen, but at its time, after the this world has been destroyed, it's not going to happen right now. Say Allah causes you to live then causes you to die. Then he will ask
unbeliev for the Day of Resurrection about which there is no doubt, but most of the people do not know. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And the day that our appears that day the faults of fires will lose. And you will see every nation kneeling without our cooler or mutton Jeff here, kneeling from fear being today, people stand arrogantly tomorrow all their greatness will go away. Every nation will be called to its record and told today, you will be recompense for what you use to do this. Our record speaks about you in truth. Indeed, we were having transcribed whatever you used to do in con Nana stancy, who merkon TomTom alone. Remember,
everything that we're doing is being recorded by the angels killam and ketamine and at times, you know, take a moment and think, look to your right into your left and remind yourself there's angels here recording what I'm doing. Even this is being recorded.
So as for those who believed in did righteous deeds, their Lord will admit them into mercy into his mercy. That is what is the clear attainment. But as for those who disbelieved, it will be said we're not our verses recited to you, but you were arrogant and became a people of criminals. Again, you see pride as being mentioned, because it is arrogance that prevents a person from accepting the truth. And from submitting to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is why there is no place for arrogance in Jannah. And when it was said Indeed, the promise of Allah is true than the hour is coming. No doubt about it. You said we know not what is the hour we don't know what you're talking about. We assume
only assumption we are not convinced and the evil consequences of what they did will appear to them and they will be enveloped by what they used to ridicule. And it will be said today we will forget you as you forgot the meeting of this day of yours and your refuges Hell is the fire and for you there are no helpers. That is because you took the verses of Allah in ridicule and worldly life deluded you so that day, they will not be removed from it meaning from the fire, nor will they be asked to appease Allah, no excuses will be accepted for Lila Hill home than to Allah belongs all praise, a little bit summer work you want to build earlier Oh Bella alameen, Lord of the heavens and

So this shows us that greatness. grandeur is only for Allah subhanaw taala. And what befits us is humility and surrender, that we realize the greatness of Allah and we keep submitting to him.

News. Oh, yes, we did that.
Yeah, this otherwise on telegram as well. inshallah I'll share all the links. Let me just
find them while we have the review.
Okay, shape I shared the form. Okay, does that go Okay. So now my work is done. Okay. We're helping out.
Okay. This journey says also shared. So
let's begin. So we're going to cover one idea, which we ask Allah to allow us to benefit from, and that is idea number 38 and Sugata Shura. So let's
begin. Yeah, for the below him and actually Banerji spoiler hunter him.
Okay, and those who have and those who have responded to their Lord and established prayer, and whose affair is determined by consultation among themselves, and from what We have provided them they spend.
Okay, so the first beginning of the isn, those who have responded to their Lord, right, so what does that mean? That means that they heard the command of a less panatela and they immediately acted upon it. Have we heard any commands over the past 25 days?
Many Savonarola, plenty of commands, right. And so we need to inshallah implement as many as possible before we forget, right, because the only way to remember is to practice. Okay, if we don't practice we will forget.
It's, so it's guaranteed. The only way to remember is to bring it into practice, inshallah. Okay, so we have to respond immediately, and establish prayer. Okay, and under that we talked about Salah a
couple of days ago. So what does it mean to establish, alright, it means we fulfill the prerequisites, meaning like we do
our clothing, right? We complete the pillars, meaning we make sure that we have performed every position that Allah panda has ordered us to fulfill in salah and fulfilling the conditions and meaning having Herschel being still
residing, what is to be decided in every position. Yes, Salah is the key to paradise. Okay, and then the next part of the I was and whose affair is determined by consultation among themselves. Okay, so we see that this is the third thing that is mentioned. So this shows its importance, doesn't it? Because the first thing was to
respond to a less command. Right. Is that necessary?
Is that something that's further upon us?
Yes, definitely. Right. What about Salah? That was the next thing that was mentioned. Is that important? Yes. Right. So then this is part of a list of important things to do. So does this mean that counts
rotation is important. Is this something that we can overlook or just forget about?
But equally important, okay, so what is it? What is sre, a group of people?
A group of people reflect on different aspects of a situation. Okay, so short our means to consult, right? So we're going to consult a group of people, they exchange their opinions and views. And they come to a consensus. Right? So is when we're consulting with someone, are we going to do what we want to do?
Yes, like an advisory committee? Exactly.
No, how are we going to come to a conclusion?
Yes, the final decision can be hours true. Right? mutual agreement, consensus. weigh the pros and cons. Yes, we take in everyone's need and opinions. Right. Like when we heard the story of sulamani salon, do you remember the queen of Saba?
Right. So yes, at the end, it was her decision. But she consulted and made sure that everyone else was on board as well. Yes, taking the best out of it, definitely. So when do we need to consult? When is it important? Anytime there's some new change, right, something new, that is going to happen.
And then also, when we need when we're starting something new, then we need new ideas as well, right? We can't keep doing the same old things.
So we need some new fresh ideas. So that will also come from consulting others, right? Because perhaps we haven't thought of something, but someone else has.
And also, if we need to analyze the current situation, let's say there's something happening. And we need to go over and see what's going on and what we need to do.
Right? So yes, when it involves everyone Exactly. And for some important matters, there's some change happening, something's someone's coming over, someone's leaving, someone's moving. So things like that. And any change in the system, right? So anytime there's anything new happening,
right? Something new happens, or is going to happen? We need to consult
others, and how can we consult?
especially nowadays, we can't have one on one meetings, right? I'm with those who are not in our household, but SubhanAllah. There's many other ways as well, right? Yes, to keep everyone in the loop. So we can call a meeting, perhaps a zoom meeting, right? online? Yes. Or we could take a survey, right? Maybe it's concerning the community? community members, right? So then take a survey, don't just implement things and expect them to follow along, take a survey, see where the community stands? Are you gonna have a suggestion box? Okay, if you have, that can be an online way of submitting suggestions. Or it can be a physical box, you could have a phone call with someone,
right? give someone a phone call, and go over what's going on and consult with them. You can send an email, you could take a poll, right? So is it difficult to consult? Is there only one way to do it? No. Right? So depending on how many people if it's just one person, then make a phone call, right or make a conference call.
Make it in writing make it in? While you're speaking. There's many ways of handling Yes. So who do we need to consult?
Yeah, you can have a whatsapp group true. First of all, we need to consult a las panatela.
First and foremost, because who knows better than Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala no one.
No matter how many people we consult, at the end of the day, it is Allah Subhana Allah Who Knows Best? Yes.
And then the next people we need to consult are the people who are directly related to what is going to happen.
Thanks to those who are directly related. So does it matter how old they are?
Does it matter what their statuses or position is no, but anyone who is going to be directly affected should be consulted. Alright, and
So consult consultation sometimes means getting everyone's idea. And other times it also means to inform right informed them.
we saw in the story of Gouda lay seller,
right, his son, who was much younger, had a much better idea on how to deal with this situation.
So, sometimes someone younger, can have something smart to say yes to brainstorming. Exactly. Right. It's the hotter and shallow we'll get to that. And so then, the next people are the smart and intelligent people. So someone you know, who has dealt with this situation, previously, right? So you can inshallah pick their brain a little bit as well. Trying to get ideas, an expert in the field. So perhaps, um, it's a medical situation, then you're going to call on a doctor, right? If you have an engineering issue, then you're going to try to find an engineer. Experienced definitely counts. Yes. Are children people have knowledge? Yes. Someone who's been through it before? Exactly.
Right. And then make sure they're sincere and serious people.
Not someone who's just going to be wasting our time not someone who doesn't well wish well for us. Just because someone's an expert or someone's smart or
they have a lot of experience it doesn't mean that they will wish well for us. Right so make sure it's someone who is sincere to us. Right they wish well for us as well. Yes. trustworthy.
Okay, and so when we talk about
consulting with Allah subhanaw taala you all know the dwarf or is the Hydra
heard of it? At least? Yes. Okay. Oh hamdulillah. So this can be found. If you don't know it. If you haven't memorized it's not a problem, right? You're going to inshallah pray to Raka
now fill Salah, and then after the Salah is complete, you can open up the book or the app and inshallah read the doors from there. Okay, you can find this though i n e I can assign
and it's also on the app as well. Okay, so let's look at the Hadees that goes along with it. Jabir bin Abdullah De La Hoya narrated that Allah's Messenger sallallahu Sallam used to teach us the way of doing is the Hara. in all matters, just like you taught us the chapters of the Quran. So how important is this? The
prophet SAW Salam used to teach it just like he taught the surah of the Quran. Yes, very, very important.
Okay, he used to say, if any one of you intends to do something, he should offer to Raka prayers, other than the compulsory prayers after finishing it, he should say,
okay, and this is the DA, because of time, I'm going to skip over the translation.
Okay, so you will make wudu if you don't have to do already, or stand up, pray to Raka. And then when you end the Salah, you'll recite this to her. Okay, so who should you not consult those people who aren't have nothing to do with the situation?
Okay, and then those people were far from being because, let's say, if you have a problem coming to class, right to this class, for example, right, so someone who is not interested in Dean, are they going to help you to log in? Are they going to help you and giving you good advice on how you can schedule your day? No. Right? Because they're not interested in this. Right. So we're not going to consult them. And we're also not going to consult self centered people. Why is that? Exactly. They're going to discourage you. They're irrelevant, right?
Yes, even they will discourage.
Right? Even they will discourage.
Okay, so the benefit of consultation is because it's in the Quran, it's a command of Allah pantalon we see the order that it was coming in, right. It was obey Allah commands, Salah consultation, and then after that is to give sadaqa
Okay, so there'll be Baraka.
Okay, there's everyone's going to be happy because no one's going to feel left out. Okay, so then when everyone's happy, what happens? It becomes easier to do the task, right? Because everyone pitches in. You get more ideas, you get more suggestion. And then the work becomes efficient because everyone's helping and there's unity because everyone is on the same page.
Yes, the results are shared as well. Exactly. Things get easier.
Alright, so how do we advise?
We should give advice when asked. Okay, so don't go imposing our ideas and our advice on people who are not asking us. And then when we advise someone, make sure we're sincere to them. Hey, look at the situation, give practical advice.
I don't know what, sorry, what's meant by there, but then don't impose your advice. Right. So you give advice and you step back? Yes, it's in a manner very true.
Right. So if someone doesn't follow your advice, don't impose your job was to advise not implement.
Okay. And so how are we going to decide what to do? You're going to research it, well, whatever the situation is, you're not going to be hasty. And you're going to put in your effort. Right? So
don't be in a rush all the time, then you're going to rely on our last pantalla. Right? Once you've done your research, you've put in your effort, right? And you've been thorough leave it to Allah, okay, what happens then are the burden is lifted from our heart and soul.
Right and then whatever the outcome is, it came from Allah Okay, it is how Allah wished it, it couldn't have been changed.
So, after we do both of these things, then whatever happens is up to our last panel All right. So a moment stays calm because the power of the worker is upon
us and then the next hook on was to spend from what has been provided right. So I have to we have to conclude here. So inshallah, those of you who are on the portal can inshallah, take a look at this slide.
And inshallah we will conclude here and meet again tomorrow. If you have any questions. I know I wasn't able to answer everyone's questions if you can please email DQ [email protected]
Okay, so you can send your questions there inshallah we can answer them. Okay, them to panic alone will be humbling. I should then lay the hayleigh and start to be like Islam. aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
