Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

00:00:11--> 00:00:32

I want to begin by welcoming you to this virtual gathering of hours. A gathering which I remind myself and you is only for one purpose, and that is to reflect over the book of Allah in order to please Allah azza wa jal.

00:00:33--> 00:00:57

It is the book of Allah that has brought us together over here in this gathering, and it is the love for Allah that has brought us to his book, we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he grant his sincerity, and that he accepts our efforts, may our intentions be sincere for him, and May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with us.

00:00:58--> 00:01:58

00:02:43--> 00:03:43

Alyssa subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, our Billahi min ash shaytani r Rajim Gula energy Tamar it insol jener Allah A to B mythri Havel call an lei to NaVi meet Li walo Cannavaro loomly, Berlin rahila say, if mankind and jinn, all of them gathered together, in order to produce the light of this put on, they could not produce the light of it. Even if they were to each other assistance. They put on the book of Allah. The speech of Allah is a message and a miracle. It is a guidance and a healing. It is instruction and blessing. The one who follows it is upon guidance, and the one who leaves it is upon misguidance The one who follows it is led to the ways of peace sabula salaam to

00:03:43--> 00:04:33

the straight path slid off him was the theme. He is brought out of darkness means Lulu mat into light Illa No. So Allah azza wa jal tells us to reflect on his book Kitab en Anza now alayka Mubarak Han, Leia, W AR T. Walia tawakol Al Bab. This is a blessing Book which We have revealed to you Oh Prophet, that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded and taking lesson from this book is something that Allah subhana wa tada has facilitated, he has made an easy one aka Dr. Sumner for analytic for helmy Mu decade, and we have certainly made the Quran easy for remembrance. So is there any who will remember,

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

learning the Quran is one of the best gifts a person can give themselves. Spending time with the book of Allah is one of the best forms of self care. Our dilemmas Rue de la de la hora, who said man in Fallujah will call on whoever intends to acquire knowledge that he should reflect on the Quran. This is knowledge that doesn't just bring

00:05:00--> 00:05:51

information to a person, but knowledge that lets them have a taste of eternal pleasure. Even taymiyah said, there is no pleasure in the world that is the same as the pleasure of the Hereafter, except for the pleasure of a man and the pleasure of knowledge. It will pay him rahimullah said that a lot of the exalted has made knowledge for hearts, like rain is to the earth. So just as there is no life for the earth without rain, there is no life for the heart without knowledge. So let us begin with calling upon Allah azza wa jal Allahumma and foreigner Bhima Alam Tana or Allah benefit us by what you teach us where I live now Marian for owner and teach us what will truly benefit us

00:05:51--> 00:05:59

what Zuko Nariman, 10 Pharaoh Nairobi, and give us knowledge by which you will benefit us. I mean,

00:06:01--> 00:06:51

sudo to effect the Hell, even our bass rhodiola horn who reported that while gibreel was sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he heard a creaking sound above him, he lifted his head and said, this is a gate that is opened in heaven today, which had never been opened before. Then when an angel descended through it, he said, this is an angel who came down to the earth who hadn't been down before he greeted, and he said, rejoice over two lights given to you, which have not been given to any profit before you solo till Fatiha and the concluding verses of Surah Baqarah. He said, You will never recite a letter from them for which you will not be given a reward. The

00:06:51--> 00:07:50

Mufasa would have listed 36 names for so little fatty hair. And this also tells us how important this sutra is. This is the only sutra that is actually praised in the Quran, by Allah the Exalted Allah subhanaw taala says what are called lt NACA sobre, Armenian mitanni, one called Anna Aleem, and we have certainly given you a prophet seven of the oft repeated verses meaning the verses of surah through Fatiha and the great Quran. Surah Fatiha has seven verses. And it begins with Bismillahirrahmanirrahim In the Name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, Allah, Allah His name is very blessed ID It is very powerful. And this is why we begin by taking his

00:07:50--> 00:08:47

name. Tarbell Raka smaller because he will generally when he kromm, Allah His name is bless it, because it is his primary and most comprehensive name. And that incorporates and necessitates all of his beautiful and perfect names. Because Allah, the One who is worshipped is and must be a man. He must be a Rahim He must be an Arlene and overseed He must have the most perfect names, or else he wouldn't be worshipped. So when a person says Bismillah, In the name of Allah, they're actually invoking Allah, by all of his beautiful and most perfect names, realize the power of Bismillah. Who is Allah? He is unlike man, the one who is extremely merciful, whose Mercy is where sear, it is all

00:08:47--> 00:09:36

encompassing. It is it affects everybody, He is Allah Haim, the one who is ever Merciful, over and over again, whose Mercy is worse lately. It is continuous. So when the name of Allah is taken, there is blessing and there is mercy. This is why we begin the recitation of the Quran. We first we begin with the recitation of the Quran by first seeking Allah's refuge against the evil of shaitan. And then we invoke Allah for his blessing and mercy. So our Oh Billahi min ash, shaytani r Rajim and Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, we beg Allah for protection, and we beg Allah for his blessing, so that we are able to gain the benefit that we seek from the Quran.

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

And hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen all due to Allah, Who is the Lord of the worlds and hamdu kulu all praise, every kind of praise is for Allah. How is with all it is verbally expressed, whereas sugar gratitude can be justified

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

Heart and Hound is more than just gratitude. It is to praise and commend someone would love and reverence for the good that they possess, not just in return for a favor that one has received from them, that is should how to praise would love and reverence. This is why Allah, Allah says wako little hamdulillah say Alhamdulillah This is verbally expressed what p lol hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. In general, it will be said all praises for Allah, Lord of the worlds. The question is why Alhamdulillah because we may be coming near metting fermina Allah, all that we have, every single blessing that we have is in fact, from Allah, especially the blessing of the Quran. The fact that

00:10:53--> 00:11:42

Allah has given us this opportunity that he gave us the ability to open his book, he gave us the ability to exert the effort and spend some time with it. He gave us his love. He gave us the love for his book, The eagerness to remember him, this is a blessing. And remember, if we do not praise Allah, then it does not matter. Because everything in the existence is already praising Allah, what a man Shay in Illa you sent be he'll be handy and there is not a thing, except that it exalts Allah by his praise. Even at this moment, the sky is praising Allah, the ground you are on is praising Allah, everything, the trees and the rocks, and even our bodies. So how excellent it would be, if we

00:11:42--> 00:12:40

join in. And we praise Allah, on our tongues a praise, that is with gratitude in our hearts would love a praise that is offered with love with adoration, and with reverence Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah for all his blessings, the blessings which he prepared for us before we were even created, and handed in law for the blessings which he bestowed on us in our lives, and Alhamdulillah for the blessings which he has prepared for his select servants in what is to come after this life. Alhamdulillah who is Allah, He is a bola aalameen the rub of All the Worlds the creator of all the provider of all the owner of all from whom we have come and to whom is our return. Alhamdulillah

00:12:41--> 00:13:33

This is a phrase that fills the scales tamela will meezan the scales in which deeds will be weighed on the Day of Judgment. So when a person says and handed in law with their heart consciously, then the reward is great. When a slave praises Allah, Allah does not return them empty handed. And on the Day of Judgment also the best servants the most superior servants will be a hammer Dune, those who praise Allah the Most Why do they praise Allah? Because he is a little Buddha Allah mean and he is a Romana Rahim. The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, repeatedly merciful, meaning Allah is not only love, not only the Creator, but his favours are also many think about it. He gave us

00:13:33--> 00:14:30

sustenance and he has given us good things in life. And his mercy encompasses everything when it was the right color shade. Every Muslim Min cafard were nerfed every single person is affected by His mercy. But remember that his special mercies are for his special servants, because he is a rare man and of Rahim, His mercy will be continuous upon his special servants in the hereafter forever and for always, they will receive his special mercy. And that is Jenna, about which Allah has said until a committee on hammer became an Asha. You are only My Mercy by means of which I shall show mercy to those whom I wish. We ask Allah to admit us into genital for those with his special mercy, because

00:14:30--> 00:15:00

even though our deeds are not worthy, His mercy is truly vast. So Allah describes himself over here by His mercy, and His mercy has mentioned four times already two times in Bismillah and two times over here in this ayah so all praises for him, for he is the rub of all the Restore of His mercy and His mercies are endless, and at the same time, he is not limited by His mercy. Maliki me

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

Dean who is Sovereign of the Day of Recompense, to whom everyone will return Allah azza wa jal is Malik, the sovereign to whom everyone will return on the day when all of us will be repaid for our deeds. And on that day, Allah says Mangia a bit hasn't it fella who Hyo minha whoever comes on the Day of Judgment with a good deed will have better than it woman just say it for now you deserve Nadine army Lucy ad in ob McCann we are Malone. And whoever comes with an evil deed than those who did evil deeds will not be recompensed except as much as what they used to do.

00:15:42--> 00:16:39

A year cannot will do what a year can us 13 it is only You we worship and only You we ask for help. Meaning when you are a law Worthy of all praise and all blessings and good things are from you, then you alone are worthy of worship also. So we show humility and servitude to you your robe. And remember Rebbe worship is based on three foundations command on herb, absolute adoration, commando, Lucha absolute hope and come out and have absolute fear. Meaning that we love him the most, we have unflinching hope in Him, and we also fear him the most. And we also seek His help with a canister in meaning we pray to Him, we make the rod to him, because there are is the essence of worship. It is

00:16:39--> 00:17:30

in fact worship. And because learn how Allah What are quwata illa Billah there is no mic and no power except with the help of Allah. Even taymiyah said, when I reflected over which the law is the most beneficial, da meaning the best and the most important supplication I realized that it is the DA for seeking Allah's help to perform deeds, performed deeds that please Him. And I found this dog in the words a year cannot will do what a year canister in the fact is, we need a less help to worship Him, to obey him to leave sin to be patient over the trials of this life. And at the time of death. Also, we need his help. And we need his help over what follows death. And there is no one who

00:17:30--> 00:18:23

is able to help us in these matters except Allah. This is why what a year can is 13. And remember that a bother worship is not just a state of heart, but it includes ritual worship also. And in fact, it includes every word and every deed, whether it is internal in the heart, in private, or it is external, on the limbs or in public that Allah subhanaw taala loves and is pleased with. So any word that we say any action that we do, even if it's a thought, If it pleases Allah, if it is done in the way that Allah subhanaw taala likes, then in fact, it is a bother. It is something rewardable iya can or will do with a canister in a dino slit author Mr. Kim, you guide us to the straight path.

00:18:23--> 00:19:09

guidance is one of the most important things one can pray for. Because if a person has guidance, that means that they have the core, they have consciousness of Allah and if they have Taqwa, they will find a way out from every trouble and receive sustenance from where they cannot even imagine. And so when a person has the core, they are truly successful. This is why we should ask Allah for guidance repeatedly. Think about it in the five daily prayers. We ask Allah for guidance at least 17 times when we recite so to Fatiha. Why, because we are in need of guidance, always in need of guidance. Or you know the Longhorn who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised me

00:19:09--> 00:19:57

keep asking Allah Allahu mendini was a Disney that Oh Allah, direct me to the straight path and make me adhere to the straight path. Meaning Don't let me go here and there. Let me remain firm on the straight path. And even when someone bothers you, when someone harms you, then pray for their guidance. don't pray against them. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked to pray against the tribe of DOS, he said Allahumma de dos and will Allah guide the people of those. So we say if Dino slipped off and was the team, he or Allah Guide us to the straight path, the path that will take us to your pleasure. And what is that path, it is slid off on Medina and I'm entirely him

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

The path of those upon whom You have

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

bestowed favor, meaning the path of the people that you are pleased with, laid in a lube era him, not of those who have evoked your anger, one of the lean, or of those who are astray, meaning we want to be on the path of the righteous, and who are they there the prophets, the truthful, the righteous, the martyrs, or Allah, the way they were sincere to you, and the way they worked to please you, You grant us the ability to be sincere to you, and to do things that please you, and you save us from being like those who ended up with your anger, those who are given knowledge, but they did not act upon it. And we also don't want to be like those people who went astray from the

00:20:47--> 00:21:34

straight path. We want to be on the path of those who were upon guidance. I mean, this was suited to refer to her, which is a sutra unlike any other. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that Allah has not revealed in the Torah, nor in the in any sort of like pseudo Fatiha and Allah subhanaw taala says about the sutra that I have divided this between me and my slave and the sulla is called a Sunnah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah says, I have divided the prayer into two halves between myself and my servant, and my servants shall have what he asks for. So when the servant says, and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. Allah says, My servant has praised me. When the

00:21:34--> 00:22:25

servant says, a man that Rahim Allah says, My servant has glorified me. When the servant says Maliki and Medina, Allah says, My servant has entrusted all matters to me. When he says a yak and our Buddha you're gonna stare in, Allah says, This is between me and my servant, and my servant shall have what he asks for. And when the servant says it didn't sit often was the clean slate off like levena Anantara lay him, laid him of lube era him one of the lien. Allah says, This is for my servant, and my servant shall have what he asks for. Amin soonercon belcarra, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, recite Surah Al Baqarah for reciting it is a blessing and leaving it is a

00:22:25--> 00:23:15

cause of grief and the magician's cannot counter it. Of what I said. I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, Do not turn your houses into graveyards. shaitan runs away from the house in which pseudo tobacco is recited. Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, Alif Lam Meem Valley Kochi tabula la Buffy, who then live with the clean. This is the Book about which there is no doubt it is a guidance for those who are conscious of Allah, who are the most clean, who are those who are always conscious of Allah who think about him. They are alladhina umina, Bill habe, those who believe in the unseen, which is an action of the heart when you came on a Sadat and they established prayer,

00:23:15--> 00:24:00

which is an action of the limbs, woman Manas, ekonomi and physical moon and spend out of what We have provided for them. This is the right of the creation. So then with the clean, those who benefit from this book, are those in whose internal is ullas remembrance so they believe in Allah the way they should believe, and they fulfill the requirements of a man and then their external state also, they practically exhibit that faith. So they're properly established salah and they spend what they have on Allah's creation, they pay full regard to the rights of the Creator, and the rights of the creation and those who believe in what has been revealed to you and what was revealed before you and

00:24:00--> 00:24:45

of the hereafter there are certain so part of taqwa and of the conditions of guidance is that a person believes in everything that was revealed on Warhammer, the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, everything that he brought, and everything that he taught, and that is in the form of the Quran, and also in the form of hikma, which is also called sooner or Hadees Allah subhanaw taala says, What unzila Allahu la Kitab al hikma and Allah has revealed on you the book and the Wisdom, where I limit command and control him and taught you what you did not know what kind of follow the law here la Kalima and the favor of Allah on you is ever great. Therefore, benefiting from the

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to actually benefit from ullas special favor. The person who gets to benefit from the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has truly received Allah

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

favor. And remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left both the Quran and the Sunnah with his oma and he urged his oma to hold on to both in order to remain guided, will be a hero to whom you can own and of the Hereafter, there are certain European convicts conviction, your pain is to believe with certainty, without any doubt, your pain is the highest rank of knowledge, it is a station which allows a person to see what the average eye does not see. This is why for the alcohol, the word a man is not used over here, but your clean has been used. When there is your clean, only then do actions change. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh people, truly there is no

00:25:48--> 00:26:37

blessing that people are given in the world that is better than your pain and our raffia conviction and safety. So ask Allah for both the person who has the opinion, then they have no doubt. They're absolutely sure. Faith is a reality to them. It is their world we it is their worldview. It is their conscious and subconscious. They know that Allah is true, His Word is true, his promises true, the meeting with him is true. Paradise is true, Hell is true. And that our is true. And it is because of your pain that a person can surrender themselves to Allah, trust in Allah and depend upon Allah and repent to Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, How excellent are five things,

00:26:37--> 00:27:22

whoever beats Allah while believing in them with conviction will enter Paradise. Whoever believes in Allah, the last day, paradise, hell, resurrection after death and the accounting. Those who have such characteristics, Allah says, Allah, Allah who the mirror be him, those are upon right guidance from their Lord, what Allah ecohome will mostly hone and it is those who are the successful, those whose external, internal, their relationships with people, all our sound. This is the standard of guidance. We asked Allah for guidance in so little Fatiha. And Allah shows us over here, what guidance looks like the conditions are given over here that if one fulfills these conditions, they

00:27:22--> 00:28:09

meet this criteria, then they are upon guidance. And if there is guidance, what Allah ecohome will move the home, then there is success. So the key to success has been given over here. In contrast, as for those people who deny it has said, Indeed, those who disbelieve it is all the same for them. Whether you warn them or do not warn them, they will not believe. Meaning when there is no faith, no belief than warning does not help. Why Allah has set a seal upon their hearts, and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil, and for them is a great punishment. When does this happen? This happens when a person rejects the truth after knowing it. And secondly, when a person increases

00:28:09--> 00:28:53

in sin, when sins are many than hearts become sealed. May Allah protect us from this. Then his third category is mentioned. And that is of those who are somewhere between Eamonn and Crawford. And they're the hypocrites. Allah says, And of the people are some who say, meaning with their mouths. We believe in Allah and the Last Day, but they're not believers in reality, soprano law, they say what their amounts that they believe, but Allah does not accept their claim. Why? Because they're not truthful in their claim. And because their practical life does not reflect what they claim to believe in both their speech and their actions contradict each other and they go against what they

00:28:53--> 00:29:40

claim. They don't do what they say, they think to deceive Allah, and those who believe, but the deceive, not accept themselves and perceive it not meaning by showing a man they try to protect their image, but in reality, they're deceiving themselves. They think they're safe, but they're not actually safe. Vehicle obey Him Mara, in their hearts is a disease, what disease This is of hypocrisy, or according to some other mufa pseudo the disease of the love of this world. So Allah has increased their disease, meaning their love and inclination for this world has increased, and for them as a painful punishment, because they have bitterly used to lie. Remember that the love of

00:29:40--> 00:30:00

the world is a disease because of which a person is deprived of the pleasure and the sweetness of a man. And when it is said to them do not cause corruption on the earth. Because the thing is that when words and actions contradict one another, when there's deception, when there's lies, then

00:30:00--> 00:30:31

This causes corruption. This causes problems. They say we are but reformers, meaning we're actually trying to get along with everybody, they justify their sins. they justify their lines. They say, we're just trying to be in everyone's good books. So wherever there's a need to lie, we do that. But the fact is that such lies only cause more problems. They don't truly bring benefit. Allah says, unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive it not.

00:30:32--> 00:31:19

And when it is set to them, believe as the people have believed, meaning believe, like the Sahaba, they say, should we believe as the foolish have believed, in their eyes, the Sahaba were foolish, the truthful or naive? unquestionably, it is they who are the foolish but they know it not. And when they meet those who believe they say, we believe, but when they are alone with their evil ones, they say, indeed, we are with you. We were only mockers. SubhanAllah, making fun of Islam, of Muslims, of people who follow Islam. This is a sign of hypocrisy. How can a person make fun of Islam when they say they believe? How can they laugh and mock at the verses that Allah has revealed? The commands

00:31:19--> 00:32:02

that Allah has given what Allah has declared sacred, they think they know better, so that they can criticize the religion of Allah. Such people are truly foolish. Allah says that Allah mocks them, and prolongs them in their transgression while they wander blindly. Meaning Allah has given them the freedom to do what they want right now. And I think what they're doing is good. They live in a fool's paradise, they're completely oblivious to their errors. And on the Day of Judgment, they will be shocked at how their light will be extinguished, and they will be left in darkness alone and bewildered. Allah says those are the ones who have purchased error in exchange for guidance. So

00:32:02--> 00:32:50

their transaction has brought no profit, nor were they guided. Their example, is like that of the one who kindled a fire, meaning at first he believed there was light, but when it illuminated what was around him, Allah took away their light and left them in darkness so they could not see. Remember, the light of the heart. Amen. is in Allah's hand. This is why we should pray alone majority of the new law or Allah make light in my heart. They did have light at the beginning. But when they feared worldly loss because of Deen, when they saw the glitters of this world, they left the dean for the dunya. So the darkness of their desires, the darkness of their doubts and disbelief

00:32:50--> 00:33:33

took over and the inner light of faith was extinguished. And so they wander in misguidance. Unable to find the way Allah says they are deaf, dumb and blind, so they will not return meaning they're unable to hear the words of guidance. When they hear such words. The sounds bounce back, the words don't reach the heart. they're unable to speak the truth. they're unable to see to absorb the truth. The signs are laid out across the earth, but they fail to see them. The verses of Quran are filled with truth and guidance, but they don't benefit. Allah says so they will not return for whom they have your own meaning they will not return to faith, they will remain in hypocrisy.

00:33:35--> 00:34:17

Or their example is like a rainstorm from the sky, a heavy downpour within which has darkness thunder and lightning. And this is referring to the verses which are being revealed in which is light, but also some risks, things that are not always easy to do. What did the hypocrites do? They put their fingers in their ears against the thunderclaps in dread of death. They avoid the hard things. They avoid the commands that are difficult on the nuts. They don't want to hear anymore. They don't want to come to guidance. They feel it's too much will love him or hate him bill caffeine. But Allah is encompassing of the disbelievers. A person should think, where can I escape

00:34:17--> 00:34:59

from Allah with sky which earth will shelter me, when the angel of death will come? There will be no escape. no getting away, that I have to stand before Allah. So before that time comes, it is necessary that I prepare for it. Allah says yeah, cuddle Berkeley after Hua busara home, the lightning almost snatches away their sight. Every time it lights the way for them. They walk there in but when darkness comes over them, they stand still. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken away their hearing and their sight. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent, but he has given them some time right now. When there is a command that seems

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

is easy. When things seem easy, hopeful, they're willing to follow the religion. But when there is some difficulty they stop. And Allah has not fully taken the means of guidance away from them. If he wanted, he could have taken away their hearing their vision. And remember that these are the means of guidance, but he is still giving them a chance. if we're honest with ourselves, we would admit that there are times when our words do not match our actions, when there is laziness in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. When the love for the world is intense, even the amount of love the alohar and who would ask her they for adoring him In the name of Allah that tell me is my name amongst the

00:35:42--> 00:36:30

names of the hypocrites that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam informed you off handler on the Longhorn who said naffaa callahans Allah He was afraid for hypocrisy for himself. The Companions feared hypocrisy for themselves. And here we are thinking ourselves to be perfect sincere believers who are safe from hypocrisy. Remember, the person who feels secure from hypocrisy is the one who is truly at risk of hypocrisy. The believer is afraid of new FARC so we should keep praying. We should keep asking Allah subhanaw taala Allahumma materia gnaeus Marina, what are the sadena working with Tina Marie atana, which are a good word is I mean, Oh Allah, allow us to benefit from our hearing,

00:36:30--> 00:37:20

our vision, our strengths, don't take them away from us, for as long as we live and make them outlive us meaning or Allah, enable us to have these abilities, these means of guidance until we die, so we can be on guidance. Now will addresses all of mankind. Yeah, you harness all mankind, worship your Lord, devote yourselves to him, love him the most have reverence for him, Who is he? He created you, you are here because of him, you are who you are because of him. And he also created those before you that you may become righteous. You may be safeguarded in the world against sin, and from falling in difficulty and in the hereafter from falling in hell, who is your Lord recognize

00:37:20--> 00:38:11

Him, He is the one who made for you the earth a bed and the sky is ceiling and sent down from the sky rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provision for you. So do not attribute to Allah equals while you know, when you know that He alone is doing all of this than He alone is worthy of your worship. La ilaha illa Allah And remember, for ibadah guidance is necessary. One needs to know what Allah likes and what Allah does not like and for that it is essential that we'll learn to the Quran. So the authenticity of the Quran is established what income to field a been. And if you are in doubt about what we have sent down upon our servant, then produce a suit of the like they're off and call

00:38:11--> 00:38:32

upon your witnesses, your helpers other than Allah, if you should be truthful, but if you do not, and you will never be able to because it is impossible for anyone to produce anything like the Quran. Then save yourselves fear the fire whose fuel is men and stones prepared for the disbelievers.

00:38:34--> 00:39:16

This shows us that if the Quran is missing from a person's life, if they don't have put on in their life, the guidance of put on in their life than the outcome is very serious, on the other hand, and give good tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds, that they will have gardens in Paradise, beneath which rivers flow whenever they are provided with a provision of fruit there from they will say, this is what we were provided with before meaning they will be given familiar food, but of course, the deliciousness will be different each time and it is given to them in likeness, meaning even though in color and appearance, they will look the same. In reality, they will be

00:39:16--> 00:39:59

different and they will have their and purified spouses and they will abide there in eternally that life is never ending. It is eternal. So prepare for that life. But there are two conditions Eman and Arnold slowly, faith and righteous action. And remember that righteous action has four components. First of all in knowledge, one must do it with knowledge. Secondly, Nia, the intention should also be good for the sake of Allah. Then sub, do it with patience. Don't give up and quit too easily. Then finally, last do it only for Allah wa

00:40:00--> 00:40:48

The Who, without any partner. This book is the great Quran. And Allah has made this Quran easy for the servants. It has Allah speech. And it is also understandable to people. If you think about it, the speech the language of people, especially those who are advanced in their knowledge is sometimes very hard to comprehend. The more a person knows, the more complicated their speech becomes. But Allah little Buddha either mean speaks to people in a way that they can understand. And this is why there are examples in the Quran. But when people fail to find fault in the Quran, they mock at the examples, they mock at the contents of the Quran. So Allah says, Indeed, Allah is not shy, Allah is

00:40:48--> 00:41:20

not timid to present an example, that of a mosquito, or what is smaller than it, and those who have believed know that it is the truth from their Lord. Every detail of the Quran is important to them. But as for those who disbelieve, they say, What did Allah intend by this as an example? They don't understand, because the hearts are covered a lot misleads many thereby and guides many thereby and he misleads not except the defiantly disobedient.

00:41:23--> 00:42:10

So the reason for their misguidance is people's own deviation, it is their own fault. Allah says Allah Mazda who as Allah who palooka home, when they deviated Allah caused their hearts to be deviated. The person who surrenders before the command of Allah, Allah gives them guidance, but those who are facet pain, who defiantly disobey, who violate the boundaries set by Allah and pursue their desires, then such people are deprived of guidance. They are those who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it, and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined, especially relationships, and they cause corruption on Earth. It is those who are the losers. We learned

00:42:10--> 00:43:01

earlier about them with the clean, the mortar Dean, the solid hain, and here the festivities are mentioned, those who break the promises that they make with Allah, they have no regard for La ilaha illa Allah, they take the name of Allah, they make promises in his name, and swear oaths in his name, and then don't fulfill them. And their relationships that Allah has commanded that they should be joined. They cut them off. Remember, the people who sever ties of kinship are deprived of Allah's mercy. And such people are ha see rune, they suffer loss in this world, and in the hereafter. There are two things that increase when a person joins ties of kinship. And they are life and risk

00:43:01--> 00:43:48

sustenance. And everyone wants to live longer and have more money. And the key to this is to be good to one's relatives, when when they do good to you, and also when they don't do good to you. Because remember, that a believer doesn't just reciprocate a believer is good. He does good regardless of how people treat him. Allah says Kay Fatah Khurana Bella, how can you disbelieve in Allah, when you were lifeless? Where did you come from? Who put life in you, and he brought you to life, then he will cause you to die, meaning you're not in this world forever, this life is short, then he will bring you back to life. Yes, there is another life and then to him, you will be returned. And then

00:43:48--> 00:44:35

there is no death. So there's two deaths and two lives. And this shows us that our life is not just in this world, the real life is the life of the hereafter. So we must prepare for what is coming ahead. It is he who created for you, all of that which is on the earth. Then he directed himself to the heaven and made them seven heavens and he is knowing of all things. Now, the origin of mankind is mentioned that where did people come from? Who was the first human being? What is the color of bucola Mela aka and mentioned or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam when your Lord said to the angels, indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority. They said will you place upon it,

00:44:35--> 00:45:00

one who causes corruption, they're in and sheds blood. They weren't objecting, they were just expressing their concern and fear. While we declare your praise and sanctify you, meaning of the purpose of man's creation is to worship you we are already doing that. Allah said Indeed, I know that which you do not know. You do not know the reason the wisdom behind the

00:45:00--> 00:45:53

Creation of human beings. And he taught Adam the names all of them, meaning a lot gave knowledge to human beings before sending a lack of knowledge to Adam or a pseudonym, before sending him on Earth. Then he showed them to the angels and said, inform me of the names of these if you are truthful, this is a loss of primatologists favor upon human beings, that Allah has given us knowledge of what we did not know. It is knowledge that was given before the foods of Jenna. It is knowledge that was given to Adam or SNM before a spouse, and it is knowledge with which Adam was given preference over the angels, the angel said Subhana color in Mallanna a llama Alevtina Exalted are You we have no

00:45:53--> 00:46:41

knowledge except what You have taught us? Indeed, it is you who is the ever knowing the ever wise, Allah said, Will Adam inform them of their names. And when he had informed them of their names, he said, Did I not tell you that I know the unseen of the heavens and the earth, and I know what you reveal and what you have concealed and mentioned when we said to the angels prostrate before Adam, so they're prostrated, except for a police. He refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers. And we said, Oh, Adam dwelle you and your wife in Paradise, and either from ease and abundance from wherever you will, but do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers.

00:46:42--> 00:47:32

But che upon caused them to slip out of it slowly and gradually, he convinced them to eat the very fruit, they were forbidden, and remove them from that condition in which they had been. And we said go down all of you as enemies to one another man his enemy to shape on and shape on his enemy to men, and you will have upon the earth a place of settlement and provision for a time. So Allah created Adam, human beings for Earth. And in general, there was a test to show that if a person disobeys their rub, then they cannot have Jenna. In order to be agenda. One has to please Allah. Then Adam received from his Lord some words, and he accepted his repentance. Indeed, it is he who is

00:47:32--> 00:48:25

the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful, Allah subhanaw taala gave otherwise set up that realization to repent. And then Allah taught Adam the words of repentance, and then accepted the repentance of Adam Subhana Allah, mercy upon mercy. Allah is pleased with the repentance of his servant. Allah rewards his servant when his servant repents, and this is good news. He or two below our land tab, the person who repents, then Allah accepts the repentance. So we should also repent to Allah from all of our sins. We said, Go down from it, all of you. And when guidance comes to you from me, whoever follows my guidance, there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.

00:48:25--> 00:48:34

This is the benefit of following guidance in donia. And their fear and their grief will keep departing from them.

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

Will levena aka photo worker will be a attina and those who disbelieve and deny our signs, those will be companions of the Fire, they will abide there in eternally after addressing all mankind, Allah subhanaw taala addresses the bunny is so Ill now specifically. Remember that this is one of the first soldiers to be revealed in Medina. And at the time, besides the Arabs, three tribes of Bani Israel, you lived in Medina and the bunny is what you were the descendants of your cooperia salaam. prophets, Musashi said I'm reciting his Sunnah and many other prophets were sent to them. And several scriptures were also given to them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also

00:49:17--> 00:50:00

sent to them. So they're addressed over here. Yeah, Benny Islam he or children of Islam, he remember my favor which I have bestowed upon you the many religious and worldly blessings that I have given to us specifically, and fulfill my covenant upon you that I will fulfill your covenant. When you will obey me, I will make you enter Jenna, and be afraid of only me and believe in what I have sent down, confirming that which is already with you and be not the first to disbelieve in it and do not exchange my signs for a small price and fear only me. You see, everybody knew that the bunny is surreal were the People of the Scripture. There were

00:50:00--> 00:50:21

Supposed to be people of knowledge, religious folk. So everyone would ask them about the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. But they would say unclear things about him, leaving people in doubt and confusion. So they're advised against that over here, let the truth be known. Do not conceal it, and do not sell my religion for a petty worldly gain.

00:50:22--> 00:51:10

And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know, and establish prayer and gives a cat and bow down with those who bow, the most important act of worship that is being mentioned again Now over here Upsala, do you order righteousness of the people and forget yourselves while you recite the Scripture, then will you not reason your words and actions should not be in contradiction? That is hypocrisy, therefore, was 30 nubus. Somebody will Sunnah and seek help through patience and prayer, when in difficulty, seek Allah's help. And indeed it is difficult except for those who are humbly submissive to Allah. Those people who are humble before Allah, who

00:51:10--> 00:51:56

willingly surrender before him, they pray Salah, happily. Remember, Salah is a test. It is a scale that will show you who you really are, what the level of your faith is. So check yourself what is the state of your heart when the other end is made? When the time of Salah enters? How do you view the place of prayer? Is it a garden or a prison? Remember sobald and Sunnah. They actually create ease in life because Allah says seek help through patience and prayer. All of the prophets of Allah would seek ease through patience and prayer. And this was the way of the righteous Also, remember that when Sato was held captive by the king, and he intended to harm her, she began praying, and

00:51:56--> 00:52:46

Ibrahim Reyes and I also began praying at the same time, and Allah delivered her from that tyrant. Salah brings Allah's mercy and protection. So who are people who actually likes other who don't find it difficult and levena Luna and the Humala corabi him, those who are certain that they will meet their Lord, and that they will return to Him, they have your pain. Again, it is said all children of Israel II remember my favor that I have bestowed upon you, and that I preferred you over the worlds and fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, nor will intercession be accepted from it, nor will compensation be taken from it, nor will they be aided, no one will help their so

00:52:46--> 00:52:56

menu or fairies now. Now, the bunny is slightly reminded of different blessings so that they realize their need of Allah and surrender to Him with gratitude.

00:52:57--> 00:53:42

And recall, when we save your forefathers from the people of our own, who afflicted you with the worst torment, slaughtering your newborn sons and keeping your females alive, and in that was a great trial from your Lord. And recall, when we parted the sea for you and saved you and we drowned the people of our own. Well, you were looking on. This was necessary for the bunny is lucky to see the armies of fit our own drowning, because if they didn't see that they wouldn't have closure, they would constantly live in fear. And recall, when we made an appointment with Moosa for 40 nights, then you took for worship the calf after him while you were wrongdoers, then we forgave you after

00:53:42--> 00:54:26

that. So perhaps you would be grateful. And recall when we gave Moosa the Scripture and criterion that perhaps you would be guided. So the book of Allah is for guidance. And recall when Moses said to his people, all my people, indeed you have wronged yourselves by your taking of the calf for worship. Imagine a lesser penalty to rescue them, they watch their enemy drown, but instead of showing gratitude to Allah, they began worshiping the calf. So mozzarella is an asset to them. So repent to your Creator, and kill yourselves kill one another. That is best for all of you. In the sight of your Creator, the punishment was severe for this, then he accepted your repentance. Indeed,

00:54:26--> 00:54:59

he is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful and recall when you said almost, we will never believe you until we see a law outright. So the Thunderbolt took you while you were looking on. Then we revived you after your death, that perhaps you would be grateful. And we shaded you with clouds and sent down to you Munna and quails saying, eat from the good things with which we have provided you and they wronged us not, but there were only wronging themselves. And recall when we said enter the city

00:55:00--> 00:55:19

And eat from it wherever you will in ease and abundance and enter the gate bowing humbly and say HIPAA, which means a softer law, that will Allah relieve us of our burdens, we will then forgive your sense for you, and we will increase the doors of good in goodness and reward.

00:55:20--> 00:56:03

But those who wronged change those words to a statement, other than that which had been set to them, instead of saying HIPAA, they said hemper, which means wheat grain, so they basically marked, so we sent down upon those who wronged a punishment from the sky, because they were defiantly disobeying, meaning there was nothing else to do than to punish such people. This is a punishment which they brought upon themselves. And recall when Moosa prayed for water for his people, so we said, strike with your staff, the stone, and they're gushed forth from a 12 Springs, and every people knew its watering place, eat and drink from the provision of Allah, and do not commit abuse on the earth,

00:56:03--> 00:56:47

spreading corruption. And recall when you said almost, we can never endure one kind of food, we can eat the same food every day. So call upon your Lord, to bring forth for us from the earth. It's green herbs, and it's cucumbers, and it's garlic, and it's lentils and it's onions, meaning we want the things that the earth grows. Messiah, Sam said, Would you exchange what is better for what is less, you want to give up money and sell our heavenly food for earthly food? If that is the case, then go into any settlement. And indeed, you will have what you have asked, you can go get it yourself then. And they were covered with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger from Allah

00:56:47--> 00:57:33

upon them. That was because they repeatedly disbelieved in the signs of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That was because they disobeyed and were habitually transgressing. So why did the Wrath of Allah befall these people because of these reasons, and especially their habitual transgression, they're breaking the limits set by Allah, they're crossing the boundaries shamelessly in pursuit of their desires. We see that when the chosen people who were favored with many blessings, when they were punished because of their transgression and denial. What does that mean? Why is this being mentioned over here, so that we take a lesson, we are very proud of the fact that

00:57:33--> 00:58:15

we are omens of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And yes, this pride is fitting, we we must be grateful to Allah for this. But we also have to watch ourselves. Remember that on the Day of Judgment, some people will come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but they will be removed far away from him. They will not even get to drink from the help, how will they get his intercession? So we have to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the true sense, we have to have Taqwa and remember that taqwa includes saving yourself from sin and transgression. And that is what will ultimately save a person from punishment in the hereafter. We have to stop ourselves

00:58:15--> 00:58:59

from sins, where the limits of a law come, we have to stop because remember that one sin, one violation leads to another and then a person gets stuck in that quick stand in that quicksand and they are worthy of Allah's wrath. And this is what happened with the bunny Islam he now it general invitation is given. Allah says in the Latina era know, when Latina had one masala wasabi in, Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or sabians, meaning before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, those among them who believed in Allah and the Last Day ended righteousness will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor

00:58:59--> 00:59:20

will they grieve? So we see that a man with righteous deeds, this is what saves a person from fear and grief, a life of obedience to Allah, mere affiliation to a group is not enough. Simply identifying with a certain group is not sufficient, there must be faith and righteous action.

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

And recall when we took your covenant, or children of Israelite, you, and we raised over you the Mount, saying, Take what we have given you with determination, and remember what is in it, that perhaps you may become righteous, you may be saved, we have been given the same command that we hold on to this book firmly, because when a person follows this book, only then do they have the power, then you turned away after that, and if not for the favor of Allah upon you and his mercy, you would have been among the losers. So it is Allah's mercy that he saved them.

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

He gave them another chance. And the fact is that Allah keeps giving us more and more chances. You see different trials, different tests that we experience in our lives, whether it is sickness or some financial trouble. Why is that? So? Why do these difficulties come to draw our attention to Allah, so that we turned to him, we inclined towards him, we run towards him. But when we get lost in those trials, and don't connect with Allah, then there is a warning over here. every difficulty that you that you face, think, did this difficulty bring me closer to Allah, or take me farther away from him? fortunate is the person who uses that time to draw near to Allah subhanaw taala.

01:00:48--> 01:01:31

And you had already known about those who transgressed among you concerning the Sabbath. Remember that they were forbidden from fishing on Saturday. So they would put the nets in on Friday and remove them on Sunday. And they would say we didn't catch the fish, the fish came themselves. What are you trying to fool Allah? Are you trying to outsmart him? So we set to them, be apes despised and we made it is determined punishment for those who were present and those who succeeded them and a lesson for those who fear Allah. So what is the lesson for them with the pain that no one can deceive Allah? deception is the way of the hypocrites and recall when musasa to his people, Indeed,

01:01:31--> 01:02:18

Allah commands you to slaughter a cow. They said, Do you take us and ridicule? Are you kidding? He said, I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant rubella. Remember, that a person of knowledge a person of intelligence, does not make fun of others does not make does not mock at others because making fun of others is a sign of Lj Helene, those who are ignorant, making fun of people's appearance, the way they talk walk or an error they make in their speech. This is not good luck. This is Joel moosari Sam said our Oh bill he an akuna Minal Jia Helene, may Allah protect me from ridiculing my people by using a last name by using a lust commands.

01:02:19--> 01:03:07

Allah tested the bunny is hot over here, you see they had lived amongst the people have been around for a very long time. And they used to worship multiple gods. So they were they they were in love with the cow. Because the fact is that your surroundings impact you. So in order to purify their, in order to purify their faith, Allah subhanaw taala tested them over here. So tests are for the purpose of purifying our faith, Allah subhanaw taala commanded them to slaughter a cow out of all things, to purify their faith, so that they would become completely submissive to Allah subhanaw taala. But they found this command very hard. So they said, You're joking. You cannot be serious.

01:03:07--> 01:03:50

And then they stalled. They asked many questions. They said, Call upon your Lord, to make clear to us what it is. Musa said. Allah says it is a cow, which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that so do what you are commanded painting, just do it. Don't delay. The fact is that the right to servants of Allah, don't delay in obeying Allah. The angels are prompt in obeying Allah. The Sahaba were also very prompt in obeying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a man said that I saw a man whose opinion was accepted by the people. And whatever he said, they submitted to him. So I asked Who is this man? And they said, this is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa

01:03:50--> 01:04:35

sallam. So let us check ourselves, whose footsteps are we on? Those are the Sahaba or those of the bunnies saw even? Then they said, Call upon your Lord, to show us what is its color. He said, he says it is a yellow cow, bright in color pleasing to the observers, but they were still not satisfied. So they said, Call upon your Lord, to make clear to us what it is, indeed, all cows look alike to us. We're confused. And indeed We insha Allah if Allah wills will be guided. So finally they said, insha Allah, and because of that, they were able to find the cow. Maasai Salam did not get exasperated by their questions. He didn't tell them to go away. mozarella sam said he says it is

01:04:35--> 01:05:00

a cow neither trained to plow the earth nor to irrigate the field, one free from fault with no spot upon it. They said now you have come with the truth. When they ran out of questions. I said finally it is clear, so they slaughtered it, but they could hardly do it. It was very difficult for them to find a colleague that Massara Sam brought the truth the first time, but it is because they did not want to follow

01:05:00--> 01:05:44

It didn't appear to be clear to them. So they kept asking questions until they ran out of questions and things became very hard for them. They did not want to slaughter the cow. This is the problem, because they thought that something terrible would happen. It would be a source of bad luck. But the exact opposite happened, the slaughtering of the cow obeying Allah subhanaw taala, in regards to this matter, actually brought ease in their situation, because at the same time, someone had been murdered, and people were being accused. So in that chaos, what happened, Allah says, And recall when you slew a man and disputed over it, but Allah was to bring about that which you were

01:05:44--> 01:06:29

concealing. So we said, strike the slain men with part of it, meaning with part of the cow. And when the deceased was struck with a with a part of the cow, he spoke the name of the murder. This was a miracle that they were showing in the time of Messiah Sena. Thus does Allah bring the death to life? And he shows you His signs that you might reason so what is the lesson? The lesson is that a person should leave superstition, and leave that those fears that prevent them from obeying Allah soprano parlor, do what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded without any fear. And this is how you will get ease in your life. Allah says, The Mikasa guru buco member daedalic, then your hearts became

01:06:29--> 01:07:18

hardened after that, being like stones, or even harder, for Indeed, there are stones from which rivers burst forth, and there are some of them that split open and water comes out. And there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allah. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. Here, three kinds of stones are mentioned that represent three kinds of people, first, stones through which rivers gush forth. And this is in places where a lot of water has get has gathered, and springs gush out because the water cannot stay contained anymore. So the rocks, the stones, they burst forth, they break away, giving way to water, and some people are like that, the knowledge, the goodness,

01:07:19--> 01:08:11

the desire to do good, the love for religion, it keeps gathering and increasing. And then comes a time when it gushes out, as if it was reverse, so many among the creation benefit from the good that they produce. The second type is of people who are such that they're good, doesn't come out immediately. It is it is inside deep inside, but a major incident like and like like a difficult trial causes them to crack, a big hurt, you know, it has a huge impact on them. So some water trickles out. And some people are like that, that they keep absorbing the good, but it doesn't come out at first. But when something causes them to crack, a hardship, then good comes out. And third,

01:08:11--> 01:08:52

rocks that fall from the fear of Allah, because of an earthquake or some landsliding some gravitational pull rocks that fall down. So some people appear to be stubborn like rocks. But when they develop the fear of Allah, they also bend, they also repent from their sins. So we see here that stones, rocks, they can break good can come forth from something that is so dry and hard, and apparently impermeable, but they can also be a source of benefit. So don't cancel people. Don't be judgmental about people, it is possible that some individuals appear to be

01:08:53--> 01:09:39

very, very hard to deal with. But a day comes that they become a source of much hate, they break they crack and so much good comes out of them. And some people are that they appear to be stones you try to communicate in different ways, but there is no response. But then something in their life causes them to surrender before Allah and the good that was hidden deep comes out. So never despair. Never fear. And we see in this ayah Allah says about the Bani Israel that your hearts became harder than stones. Some people are different. So we should ask Allah to keep our hearts soft, that we continue to benefit from the verses of Allah and May Allah protect us from the evil of our souls. It

01:09:39--> 01:09:59

will pay him rahimullah Allah said that there are five things that corrupt the hearts. Number one, fix, number one, mixing frequently with people socializing excessively, not having alone time with Allah subhanaw taala with oneself. Secondly, following the desire beating doing only

01:10:00--> 01:10:45

That which pleases the naps. Thirdly, loving someone more than loving Allah. Fourthly, excessive sleep. And number five, excessive consumption of food. This is just like, you see, when the stomach is upset, then no good food benefits, the best food is even rejected by it. Similarly, on the heart is corrupt, then nothing good has an impact. So Allah subhanaw taala addresses the believers saying, Do you cover it? Do you hope or believers that they would believe for you? You really think the bunny is right, you will believe while a party of them used to hear the words of Allah, and then distort the total, after they had understood it. While they were knowing.

01:10:46--> 01:11:29

How hard were their hearts, they refuse to change themselves. They tried to change the words of a law. And when they meet those who believe they say we have believed, but when they are alone with one another, they say, do you talk to them about that? Do you talk to them about what Allah has revealed to you so they can argue with you about it before your Lord, then will you not reason? But do they not know that Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare? And among them are unlettered ones, those who don't know the book, who do not know the Scripture, except in wishful thinking? Or that they only know how to read the book without understanding its meaning. But they're

01:11:29--> 01:12:17

only assuming we seen this ayah that not knowing the book of Allah is actually ignorance. Even if a person knows many other things. If they don't know the book of Allah, then they are unlettered. So woe to those who write the Scripture with their own hands, then say this is from Allah, in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and water them for what they earn. And they say, never will defier touch us except for a few days, this is the corruption of their belief. Say, have you taken a covenant with Allah, for Allah will never break his covenant? Or do you say about Allah, that which you do not know. But a man cassava, say he at 10 Yes, whoever

01:12:17--> 01:13:10

earns evil, and is evil, his sin has encompassed him, meaning he is surrounded by his sin, not he is surrounded by his sin, not leaving it, not coming out of it. Those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide there eternally, or be or even who they've said, this is the person who commits sin, and dies in that state without repentance. Remember, little sins that are many, enough to destroy a person and who knows what if a person is not even able to repent from those sins. This is why a person should remain fearful of Allah and seek forgiveness of Allah throughout the day, that will Allah forgive me, all of my sins, but they who believe and do righteous deeds, those are the

01:13:10--> 01:13:57

companions of Paradise, they will abide there and eternally. And recall when we took the covenant from the children of Islam, he do not worship except Allah, and to parents do good, and to relatives, orphans, and the needy, and speak to people good and establish prayer and gives a cat. But then you turned away, except a few of you. And you were refusing. A covenant was taken from the Bani Israel. But why are we being told about it? So that we know that these are important things to do? What are they, first of all, worship only Allah, then, if Sam with parents, because after Allah, the greatest right is of the parents, and remember, your son is not just reciprocation, that only

01:13:57--> 01:14:48

when they speak nicely to you, you speak nicely in return. And if they yell at you, you yell back, no exam is to do good, even in return for bed. So regardless of what parents do to you say to you how they are to you, you must be good to them. This is a lost command. And then yes, I'm not just towards parents, but extend this to other relatives too. And then expand further include the orphans and those in need, because they are the part of society that is not generally given much importance, nor are they treated well. So show your sign to them. And then what is the minimum level of your son that doesn't cost anything we'll call in see his now speak to people good words, kindly, decently,

01:14:48--> 01:14:59

meaning if you cannot give them anything, at least speak to them nicely. This is the bare minimum. So if Sam is with actions, and your son is also with speech ALC

01:15:00--> 01:15:13

moto moto. sadhaka a good word is charity, spreading sundown and speaking of deeds that bring about forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. There are among Mooji baton Mahavira

01:15:14--> 01:16:04

to everyone and speak good in a way that is good. Make sure that your words are truthful, necessary, respectful, courteous, free of arrogance, free of boastfulness free of rudeness and other ills make your Calum herson May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the a bit of give give us all the ability to speak good to say what is good in a way that is good. And then they were told to perform salah and gives a carrot because these are also very important, along with good of luck. It's not either or it is both. This is complete, Dean. Do we not know that these are important things we all do. But reading it today is a way of reminding ourselves because we are human and we forget the Prophet

01:16:04--> 01:16:21

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reviewed the Quran with jabril every Ramadan. Why? Because reviewing the Quran allows you to remember what you know, recall what you have forgotten, increase in your Eman and to have the motivation to do good.

01:16:22--> 01:17:07

What is 100 meter kakum and recall when we took your covenant saying do not share each other's blood or evict one another from your homes, then you acknowledge this while you're witnessing, then you are those same ones who are killing one another and evicting a party of your people from their homes, cooperating against them insane and aggression. And if they come to you as captives, you ransom them, then you remember your folk, although their eviction was forbidden to you in the first place. So do you believe in part of the Scripture and disbelieve in part, this was not allowed for the Bundesliga. Nor is this allowed for us that we just select from the religion what we like and we

01:17:07--> 01:17:54

leave what we don't like. Then what is the recompense for those who do that among you, except disgrace in worldly life, when a person only takes from their religion what they like and leave the rest, then this is something that brings about humiliation, and on the Day of Resurrection, they will be sent back to the severest of punishment, each time they try to come out they will be sent back. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. So remember, that he man requires from us that we surrender to our Lord fully and completely. Those are the ones who have bought the life of this world in exchange for the hereafter. So the punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they

01:17:54--> 01:18:38

be aided. And we did certainly give most of the Toba and followed up after him with messengers, and we gave Risa the son of money, um, clear proofs and supported him with the pure spirit meaning to be, but is it not that every time a messenger came to you or children of Islam, even with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant, and a party of messengers you denied, and another party you killed? Meaning if someone told you what was right, what was wrong, you didn't want to hear them. And this is the height of arrogance. And this is something that we need to reflect over also, because the moment someone tells us what is right or what is wrong, we tell them to mind their own

01:18:38--> 01:19:06

business. We don't allow this anymore. This was the behavior of the bunny is to Allah. Allah says, we'll call okolona wolf. And they said, Our hearts are wrapped meaning we're full of knowledge we don't need to know. But in fact, Allah has cursed them for their disbelief when a person does not wish to learn anymore, does not wish to be reminded. And this is a sign of danger. So little is it that they believe

01:19:07--> 01:19:49

and when their came to them a Book from Allah, confirming that which was with them, although before they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieved. They were waiting for the final messenger. But then, when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not from among them, he was an Arab. So the curse of Allah will be upon the disbelievers. How wretched is that for which they sold themselves, that they would disbelieve in what Allah has revealed, because of their outrage, that Allah would send out his favor upon whom He wills from among his servants. So the real problem was actually

01:19:49--> 01:19:59

jealousy. Then why has this messenger come from the Arabs? Why not from us? So they returned having earned wrath upon wrath.

01:20:00--> 01:20:36

For such disbelievers is a humiliating punishment, and when it is set to them believe in what Allah has revealed, they say we believe in only what was revealed to us. And they disbelieve in what came after it, while it is the truth, confirming that which is with them, meaning they'll call on confirms that it does not project it, but they reject the Quran say, then why did you kill the prophets of Allah before? If you are indeed believers, if you claim to believe in your book, then why did you kill the very prophets who reminded you to follow that book?

01:20:37--> 01:21:14

And Moosa had certainly brought you clear proofs. But then you took the calf in worship after that, while you were wrongdoers. Imagine the Prophet of Allah was amongst them, and yet they worship the calf. How shocking is that? What is 100 meter cocoon? And recall when we took your covenant, what a foreigner vocal Komodo, and we raised over you the Mt. Saying, who Duma attina combi Cova take what we have given you with determination was Maru. And listen, they said instead semir. Now, where are

01:21:15--> 01:22:00

we here? And we disobey. We're not going to listen, we're not going to comply. We choose to do differently. Why? Why did they say this? What we should leave will feel Columbia himolla originally kufri him and their hearts absorbed the worship of the calf because of their disbelief. This shows us that when a person knowingly chooses to disobey Allah, then they get caught in some other fitna, in the extreme love of something else, so much so that they forget themselves. And they also forget Allah say, how wretched is that which your faith enjoins upon you, if you should be believers, meaning you claim to be believers, is this belief.

01:22:01--> 01:22:47

Say, oh Prophet, if the whole of the hereafter with Allah is for you alone, and not the other people that wish for death, if you should be truthful, you see, just like us. The bunny is what you believe that Jenna was reserved for them, no matter what they did. You see, we should have hope. And we should have the opinion that he is the one who says La ilaha illAllah. Ultimately, they will enter Jannah but with that hope there should also be fear. We should be hopeful of Allah's mercy and forgiveness, but we should also fear his disapproval. Because think about it. How many sins did Adam and Sam commit because of which he was removed from Jenna, it was just one bite, only one violation.

01:22:47--> 01:23:32

And because of how many crimes was a police removed from Allah's mercy, it began with just one rejection, one refusal. And we learned in Hades that a person utters one word, and he doesn't even think much of it. But because of that one word, he falls in hell for 70,000 years. We should not despair of Allah's mercy. But we should also not be blind to our reality. We should remain fearful of Allah. And remember that this is only an Allah's hand, it is up to him, he can forgive who he wants, and he can punish whomever he wants. So we should keep seeking forgiveness from Allah, that Allah forgive us for what we have done knowingly, and forgive us for what we have done unknowingly.

01:23:33--> 01:24:19

But they will never wish for death, ever, because of what their hands have put forth, meaning they know exactly where they stand. And Allah is Knowing of the wrong doors, and you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life, even more than those who associate others with Allah. Meaning the mushrikeen are not even as greedy for life, as these people are. One of them wishes that he could be granted life for 1000 years, but it would not remove him in the least from the coming punishment, that he should be granted long life. And Allah is seeing of what they do. Meaning a long life does not save one from their final outcome. A delay does not mean avoidance. Ultimately, all of

01:24:19--> 01:25:00

us have to return to Allah. Say whoever is an enemy to duty, it is none but he who has brought the Quran down upon your heart Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by permission of Allah, confirming that which was before and as guidance and good tidings for the believers. You see, the bunny is fine. They asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then who is it that brings you a revelation, and he told him it is gibreel they said, well, but we don't like him, because GPL used to bring punishment. Hello Sir pantherella says over here for inner hoonah Zilla who are now conducted in La gibreel does not bring any revelation or any other without the

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

command of a lot. And then we see in this ayah that what gibreel brings revelation, the Quran, it is who then will Bushra limit meaning it is guidance and good news. For those who believe Subhana Allah, the Quran gives instruction, it brings you guidance, it shows you the way. And it also brings good news, it also gives hope and encouragement. Men can or the will lilla whoever is an enemy to Allah, and his angels, and his messengers, and gibreel and Mika, even then, Indeed, Allah is an enemy, that Indeed, Allah is an enemy to the disbelievers.

01:25:43--> 01:26:29

And We have certainly revealed to you verses which are clear proofs, and no one would deny them except the defiantly disobedient. Is it not true that every time they took a covenant, a party of them threw it away, meaning every time they made promises with Allah, they broke them. But in fact, most of them do not believe. And when a messenger from Allah came to them, confirming that which was with them, a party of those who had been given the Scripture, through the scripture of a love behind their backs, as if they did not even know as if they had no idea about what the scripture said. Remember, throwing the book of Allah behind the back means that a person gives more importance to

01:26:29--> 01:27:19

other things, instead of the book of Allah. They would rather recite, read, study something else, they would rather spend time with something else, it is not wrong, to read other things, it's perfectly fine. But if a person does not give importance to the Quran at all, they prefer other things, other speeches, other books, other things over the Quran, then this is a problem. And this is something that we all need to reflect over, we all need to check ourselves that how much of our time is spent with the Quran, and especially reflecting on the Quran. Because remember, reciting the Quran is good. memorizing the Quran is excellent. But the purpose of the Quran is not fulfilled by

01:27:19--> 01:28:08

just reading and memorizing it. The Quran is supposed to be understood, it is supposed to be followed, it is supposed to remove darkness from our lives. So understanding the polygon is necessary for all of us. And it is not enough to just read the translation once or twice, revision is important. Study is important, and a person must continue to reflect on it. So if you had been Reena said, the people have decorated the Quran with silk covers. They have decorated it with gold and silver, but they fail to act upon it. And this is they're throwing it behind their backs. Meaning they've made the book very expensive, very beautiful, but they don't actually fulfill its

01:28:08--> 01:28:57

purpose. So the money is thought either abandoned the book of Allah, they threw it behind their back as if it did not exist. It did not exist in their lives. It had no place in their lives. So what is it that they turned to? What is it that they filled their time with? What the bedroom into the shower clean, and they followed instead? What the devil's had recited during the reign of Sulaiman It was not so a man who disbelieved but the devil's disbelieved. What was that disbelief? What was that coffee? It was teaching people magic. When the people when people leave the Quran, then what is it that they pursue? It is things like this. So they followed the so they, so they followed, instead

01:28:57--> 01:29:51

of the book of Allah. They followed what the devils recited. They taught people magic, and what was revealed to the two angels at Babylon. How wrote Mr. Rhodes, but the two angels did not teach anyone unless they said, We are a trial. So do not disbelieve by practicing magic. And yet they learn from them, that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife, and you see this disease has become so prevalent today. So many people suffer because of magic. Families are destroyed. people's health, people's wealth, their peace of mind. It's ruined. Why? What is the reason? Why do people resort to magic jealousy? That they're not happy with the blessings that other people have? And this

01:29:51--> 01:29:59

jealousy Remember, it goes against Amen. And looked up as a person whose heart is clean and Motoki feels pain.

01:30:00--> 01:30:44

have hurt, have enduring difficulty. And that is perfectly fine, you're allowed to feel hurt, you're allowed to feel pain. But decay does not keep resentment and jealousy in their heart for others. And remember that every time you feel some pain in your heart because of some old wounds even because because certain things, they trigger old wounds, right, they trigger that pain. And every single time that a person turns to Allah, and there is reward, there is reward in that pain. But the believer does not bear jealousy. And that jealousy does not lead him to cause harm to others, to resort to lowly ways, such as doing magic and others. But they do not harm anyone through it, except

01:30:44--> 01:31:03

by permission of Allah. And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the children of Islam, you certainly knew that whoever purchased it would not have in the hereafter any share. And wretched is that game for which they sold themselves if they only knew.

01:31:04--> 01:31:06

So remember that magic.

01:31:09--> 01:31:37

So remember that magic has its effect, but only with the permission of Allah. So instead of being afraid of magic, and fearing that someone might or might do magic or has already done magic, instead of living in the sphere, we need to turn to Allah to protect us. You see when it is cold? What do you do? You wear warm clothing? You guard yourself? You protect yourself like that?

01:31:40--> 01:31:41

Are you able to hear me

01:31:50--> 01:31:50

Bismillah

01:31:54--> 01:31:55

AR Are you able to hear?

01:31:58--> 01:31:59

Is the voice clear?

01:32:07--> 01:32:08

Are you able to hear now?

01:32:11--> 01:32:12

Are you able to hear now?

01:32:17--> 01:32:19

Okay, sorry about that.

01:32:21--> 01:33:11

Or the apology. So in the side we see that magic has its effect, but only with the permission of Allah. So instead of being afraid of magic, and fearing that someone might do magic on us, or they have done magic on us, instead of living with this constant fear, we need to turn to Allah subhanaw taala to protect us. You see when it is cold outside, you protect yourself by wearing warm clothes. When it is hot, you make arrangements. So just like that when you sense the jealousy of people, or when you fear the evil of champagne, then regularly redraws for your protection. And remember that the vicar of Allah is actually a fortress, it is a protection. You are safe because of the vicar of

01:33:11--> 01:33:38

Allah. And because of the vicar of Allah. Nothing can harm you. So be confident. Allah says Willow, under whom am I know what taco lemma sobre to Marin della Hi, lo can we are the moon. And if they had believed and feared Allah, instead of practicing magic, then the reward from Allah would have been far better. Only if they knew if they only knew.

01:33:39--> 01:34:23

Yeah, and you have levena amanu. All you who have believed, do not say loreena meaning to Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but instead say, Lorna, and listen attentively, and for the disbelievers is a painful punishment. You see, the Sahaba over here are taught the etiquettes of a gathering, that when you were sitting in the company of the Prophet sallallahu, already he was setting them and you wish for him to repeat something for you that do not say loreena use a better word. The word of Arina was actually misused by the people of the book, they would say to the Prophet sallallahu, or to send them a loreena instead of Arina. They would mispronounce it. Why

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

because there are no means our shepherd. So they would say that in order to make fun of him, and their inner animosity would come out like this, it would surface like this in cheap ways. So people who behave like this, there's no need to waste your time arguing with them. Simply change our ways. And there are certain people who like to tease you, who like to belittle you who like to shame you, or pick fights with you and every little thing, so don't waste your time fighting them. Simply avoid conflict. What a beautiful lesson we have been taught over here. Neither those who disbelieve from the people of the script

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

Nor the polytheists wish that any good should be sent down to you from your Lord. But Allah selects for his mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the possessor of great bounty. We do not abrogate a verse, or cause it to be forgotten, except that we bring forth one that is better than it or similar to it. And I'm Tara lamb, and aloha Galicia in Cadiz. Do you not know that Allah is over all things competent? And I'm Tara lamb, and Allahu Allahu macusa mawashi will? Do you not know that to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and that you have not besides Allah muhuali Yin, willen, asleep, any protector or any helper? Or do you owe believers intend to ask your messenger as

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

Musab was asked before? Are you going to treat your prophet the way the bunny is thought you've treated theirs. And whoever exchanges faith for disbelief has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way.

01:36:02--> 01:36:55

Many of the People of the Scripture wish they could turn you back to disbelief after you have believed. Why, out of envy from themselves, even after the truth has become clear to them. So pardon and overlook until Allah delivers his command. How beautiful Indeed, Allah is over all things competent, will clean was solid. What are two Zakat and established prayer and gives a cat That's it, know what not to cut the Molly unfussy come in Hi. And whatever good you put forward for yourselves, that you do or in the law, you will find it with a law, meaning every little and big deed that you do for the sake of Allah, you will find it with him. Indeed, Allah of what you do is

01:36:55--> 01:37:42

seeing. You see sometimes we think that as long as we have prayed our Salah, and we have given our as a cat, that's enough, then there's nothing else that we need to do. We think that's the maximum good that we can do. And then we are free to do whatever we want, we can indulge in the world and pursue our desires. And yes, any as long as it's permissible, it is fine. But remember that there is no limit to the good that you can do. The door to good is vast. Any good deed you do big or small, whether it is internal or external, in the heart, or on the body, private or public in word or inaction, any bead that Allah loves and approves off, then we should be eager to do it. The believer

01:37:42--> 01:38:26

is eager, filleted woman to cut the moody unfussy coming hide in that you do her in the law. Sometimes we look at other people and we say, oh, they're not doing much. So why should I bother? No. Our example should be a sabya. Kuhn, those who are ahead of us, not those who are lingering behind, and they say none will enter Paradise except one who is a Jew, or according to Christians, a Christian. Allah says that is merely their wishful thinking that they assume that they're upon the truth, that they are the ones who are going to paradise say, produce your proof if you should be truthful. This problem is also common in many Muslims. There are so many sectarian divisions and

01:38:26--> 01:39:16

these labels that we give one another and to ourselves, and then we declare people to be Jenna T, or Johanna me and things like that. Allah says Bella men as Lama would you have Gunilla? Yes, on the contrary, who is it that will be saved? Whoever submits his face in Islam to Allah, love bake my Lord, you commanded me? I will surrender to you, man as Lama Raja hula lobby kolomela bake. Well, one more sin, while being a doer of good fella who Angelou who were in the lobby. So he will have his reward with his Lord, what are How can I lay him? What are homeadvisor noon? And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve? It is such people who will be free of worries, who

01:39:16--> 01:39:59

will be free of fear. So what is the lesson in this ayah that we must have a class we must be sincere to Allah, and we must have your son, we must be excellent, do the best that we can in worshipping and obeying Allah subhanaw taala. The Jews say the Christians have nothing true to stand on. And the Christians say the Jews have nothing to stand on. Although they both recite the same scripture. Thus, the polytheists speak the same as their words, but Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ. So it's important that instead of basing our lives on whims and assumptions, we should learn what Allah really wants.

01:40:00--> 01:40:21

To do woman, a woman menara messaggi the law and who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of a law for being mentioned in his mosques. They prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in his mosques and strive toward their destruction. They cause disturbance in the masjid,

01:40:22--> 01:41:05

bloodshed, noise, fighting facade, all of these are serious crimes, it is not allowed for them to enter them except in fear for them in this world is a disgrace. Why? Because they turn their places of worship into crime scenes. So for them is disgrace in the world, and they will have in the Hereafter, a great punishment. Remember, causing for sad and disturbing the peace of any places wrong, but disturbing the peace of the masjid is worse. And remember that the mustard is for Allah, it should be used to elevate his name. So we should all be careful and refrain from doing things that cause people to run away from the mustard.

01:41:06--> 01:41:53

And also we see over here, that such people for them is humiliation in the world and a great punishment in the hereafter. So we should ask Allah to protect us from disgrace in the world and punishment in the hereafter. Allahumma sinner occupat and I feel almost equally her agenda metaphyseal dunya Where are the hero? Well, Illa, Hill, machico and Muslim and to Allah belongs to the east and the west. So wherever you might turn, there is the face of Allah. Indeed, Allah is all encompassing, and knowing they say, Allah has taken a sun Exalted is He so the Hannah who, To Him belongs, whatever is in the heavens and the earth. All are devoutly obedient to Him. Every single

01:41:53--> 01:42:45

day is Allah, ask yourself, What do I do? The fact is that he is Originator of the heavens and the earth. When he decrees a matter. He only says to it be added is this is a lost power. Those who do not know say, Why does a lot not speak to us, or they're come to us a sign that spoke those before them like their words, their hearts resemble each other. We have shown clearly the signs to people who are certain in faith in also NACA will help but she one one of the line. Indeed, we have sent to you or Prophet sallallahu ala you will send them with the truth as a bringer of good tidings and a warner the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give good news to those who obey Allah and he give

01:42:45--> 01:43:35

warning to those who disobey. Why? to threaten them to shame them No, in order to help them stop their wrongdoing. And you will not be asked about the companions of hellfire. And the fact is, that never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you, they will never approve of your religion, of your law of your way of your Prophethood of your book, until you follow their religion. Say Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the only guidance all in who the lucky who will Huda if a person wants to be guided, then they have to follow the guidance of Allah, if you were to follow their desires, after what has come to you of knowledge, you would have against Allah, no protector or helper. So

01:43:35--> 01:44:26

after getting knowledge, when should not follow the desires of people, or the desires of the nups and Merman. niboshi said that shavon has snares and traps, the traps of shaitan they are to exalt ungratefully in the blessings of Allah to boast about the gifts of Allah, to have pride at the expense of the slaves of Allah and to follow desire for other than the sake of Allah meeting instead of obeying Allah. When a person follows their desire, then such a person has actually been caught in the trap of shape on so they must do something to set themselves free. And Medina attina who will keytab those to whom we have given the book yet Luna who helped katella watty they recite it with

01:44:26--> 01:44:59

its true recital? Let me know and Abby, they are the ones who truly believe in it. And whoever disbelieves in it, it is they who are the losers to our of the book recitation of the book, not just mere recitation, but how often our what is held up to our to recite it with true recital. It is not just to recited with perfect the dream or with beautiful voice, but it is to declare the lawful of the Quran as lawful.

01:45:00--> 01:45:48

The unlawful as unlawful, it is to believe in it's more calm and the motto shabby to believe in, in all of the contents of the Quran, and it is to follow the Mohican, meaning the commands that the Quran gives, that a person should follow them. When they do that, then they're truly reciting the book, or children of Israel II. Remember my favor which I have bestowed upon you, and that I preferred you over the worlds and fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, and no compensation will be accepted from it, nor will any intercession benefit it, nor will they be aided. Do something for yourself before that day will either be tele Ibrahim or boohoo be Kelly

01:45:48--> 01:46:41

Martin for uttama. Han and mentioned when Ibrahim was tried by his Lord with commands, and he fulfilled them. Allah said, Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people. The one who passes the test is worthy of leadership, Ibrahim said Is this also for my descendants, Allah said my covenant does not include the wrongdoers. So this leadership is not inherited. And mentioned when we made the house, a place of return for the people, the Kaaba, and a place of security. And take all believers from the standing place of Ibrahim, a place of prayer. And we charged Ibrahim and his Marines saying, purify my house, clean the carb, for those who perform the love and those who are staying

01:46:41--> 01:47:27

there for worship and those who bow and prostrate in prayer. We learned in this ayah that the karma is metabo Lynas, a place of return for the people, may Allah allow us to return to his house again and again. And mentioned what Abraham said, My Lord, make this a secure city and provide its people with fruits, whoever of them believes in Allah. And the last day, Allah said that whoever disbelieves I will grant him enjoyment for a little meaning in this life, then I will force him to the punishment of the Fire. And Richard is the destination. And mentioned when Ibrahim was raising the foundations of the house, and with him is married, both father and son, worshiping Allah,

01:47:28--> 01:47:30

building his house, saying,

01:47:31--> 01:48:24

have been at Taco Bell Mina, our Lord, accept this from us in the semi earlene indeed, you are the hearing the knowing they were building the house of Allah the curb, and still they were calling upon him. And what were they saying? Allah accept this from us. The believer is concerned about the acceptance of their deeds, not just performance. This is their wish to Allah. Please accept this. And this was the humility of these great prophets. And we should also be humble that no matter what we do, we should beg Allah to accept our deeds. We should not take it for granted. nor should we boast about our deeds were considered that we're doing a lot of favor by doing something. No, this

01:48:24--> 01:49:16

is a last favor on us have been our Darla Mosley maniac, woman Sylvia Tina omata, muslimah Turlock, our Lord, and make us Muslims in submission to you and from our descendants in Muslim nation in submission to you. What Edina manasi Cana ensures our rights, our ways of worship, what tilbyr Elena and accept our repentance in Naka under the web of Rahim, indeed, you are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful Mordor as of Ibrahim and is married, look at their drawers that Allah we are constructing this building, but you also give us the ability to worship you. You see, sometimes we participate in the building of mosques, and in the various activities and services that are

01:49:16--> 01:50:00

offered at the mosque. But what about worship? What about worship? Allah, Ibrahim raised and I've said well, you know, monastic gonna show us our ways of worship, meaning enable us to worship you also. It is not enough to just have a Masjid. It is important to worship Allah. And remember that just because we're not able to go to the masjid these days, it doesn't mean that we stop worshiping Allah. We should busy ourselves in making Dora in making Vickers and especially doba Ibrahim Ibrahima is Santa was making the rounds over here and his drawers were not just for himself or for the people of his time. But he was also making the raw for the people to come

01:50:00--> 01:50:46

He was truly a visionary. What was he praying for? He said, what have been our birth fee him Rasulullah our Lord and send among them, meaning my progeny, the people who will live in this land, the people who will come in the future, send among them a messenger from themselves. What will he do yet? Who are they him aka tick, who will recite to them your verses where you are lemuel Kitab al hikma and He will teach them the book and the Wisdom will use a key Him and He will purify them in the disease. Would Hakeem? Indeed you are the Exalted in Might the wise, look at the concern that Ibrahim already said I'm had for his descendants. That will Allah, send them a prophet who will

01:50:46--> 01:51:31

recite your book to them? Who will teach them your book, who will teach them wisdom, who will purify them from the inside and the outside? Who will make them better people? Think about it. What do we make for our children, even if we don't have children right now, but what dollars do we make for our future generations? That what should they get? What what is it that we pray for? For our children? That what should they get in our lives? And even after our lives? Typically we pray for their marriage. We pray for their education. We pray for their wealth and their health. What about their Deen? We should pray for both Robin attina dunya has an errata Hassan and Ibrahim is and I'm also

01:51:31--> 01:52:16

prayed for both. He said provide them a fruits, give them food give them sustenance, but he wanted not just worldly sustenance, not just physical sustenance, he wanted spiritual sustenance because the real life is the life of the heart. So we need to think are we concerned for the religious education of our children, their spiritual development as we are for their physical and worldly development? We are concerned about their physical health. What about their spiritual health? We are concerned about their worldly education. What about their religious education? Why are we concerned only about this life? We should be concerned about this life and the eternity the afterlife.

01:52:18--> 01:52:30

When my you'll have our military, Ibrahim in alarm, and Sufi hand up, sir, and who would be averse to the religion of Ibrahim except one who makes a fool of himself?

01:52:31--> 01:53:24

Who would be averse to the wave Ibrahim, except someone who is a fool. meaning they're only pursuing the world. And we had chosen about him in this world. And indeed he in the hereafter will be among the righteous. What is so special about Ibrahim? What was the way of Ebola him in Allah la hora boo, a slim, when his Lord said to him submit all a slum to the Lord bilello mean, he said, I have submitted to the Lord of the worlds. And Ibrahim instructed his sons to do the same. And so did your job. What did they say? They said, Oh my sons, Indeed, Allah has chosen for you this religion, so do not die. Except while you are Muslims. How important is this there are for us also, that we pray for

01:53:24--> 01:54:09

the Islam of our children. And we also make them promise. We teach them, we prepare them that you must guard your faith. We teach them that without Islam, there is no salvation. So they should worship Allah until the very end of their lives. Or were you witnesses when death approached Dr. Paul, meaning he was at his last breaths. When he said to his sons, what will you worship after me? And we need to think, have we ever asked our children the same question? What is it that you worship? What is it that you will worship for the rest of your lives? They said, We will worship your God and the God of your fathers Ibrahim and his smile he and his how one God and we are Muslims

01:54:09--> 01:54:58

in submission to him. Ibrahim on Instagram said a slum to the orbiter, amin and his children. his grandchildren also said nullah who Muslim moon Allah says tilaka oma kala, that was a nation which has passed on the Hama Casa that's what a comarca sabaton it will have the consequence of what it earned. And you will have what you have earned. Each person will be compensated for what they did. And you will not be asked about what they used to do. And this is something we need to reflect over Also, our elders have gone with their deeds. They gathered their righteous deeds and left at their time. So we should not settle with just pride over their accomplishments that we are their children,

01:54:58--> 01:54:59

that we are their grandchildren.

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

They will have their own deeds, we need to do something for ourselves, they say be Jews or Christians. So, you will be guided just as many people claim today, join this group join the sect and only then you will be guided Paul Bellamy letter Ibrahim say rather we follow the religion of Ibrahim inclining towards truth and he was not out the machete King kulu Amana Villa Hulu, all of you should say, Allah Nabila. We have believed in Allah, wa one sila Elena, and we have believed in what has been revealed to us. One man one Zilla, Illa Ibrahim, and what was revealed to Ibrahim what is smart and what is help we are cool what about and what was revealed to his Mary and is how many

01:55:55--> 01:56:40

are called and the descendants mean the profits from among the bunnies saw in Walmart Oh tmo salaries. And we believe in what was given to Moosa under Isa warmer OT and OB Yuna, middle of beat him and we believe in whatever was given to the profits from their Lord, learn for Leah Cobain and I hadn't been home, we make no distinction between any of them. We believe in all of them. We honor all of them. When a hula hoop Muslim moon, and we are Muslims in submission to him to Allah alone. So Muslims believe in all of the prophets of Allah, in all revelation that alesund down, and this is what perfects the religion, because remember, denying even one prophet is like denying all of them.

01:56:40--> 01:57:29

In a hadith in Sahih Muslim, even our best for the love Martin who reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite this ayah in the first knockout of the sinner prayer is a budget. So we should also memorize this ayah and recite it in Sunnah pulu Billa woman Sita Elena woman Zilla Illa Ibrahim was smart he was help were called when asked about woman Oto musawah Isa one ma ot n ob Unum Allah be him learn for Li kobina Heidi Minh home one a hula hula Simone. So if they believe in the same as you believe in meaning of the rest of the people believe in the same way, as the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam believed, then they have been

01:57:29--> 01:58:19

rightly guided, but if they turn away, they're only in dissension and Allah will be sufficient for you against them. forsake FECA human law, Allah will be sufficient for you against them. So don't fear them. Well, who is semirara lean? And he is the hearing the knowing sybilla law and say, ours is the color of a law, the color of Allah. Yes, this refers to the religion of Allah, meaning this is what we adopt. And you should also adopt that. Why? Because women accent Amina Allah, his labor, and who is better than Allah in ordaining religion whose religion could be best when a hula hula be doing, and we are worshipers of him. You see, the religion should become such a part of our lives,

01:58:19--> 01:59:04

it should become our identity. That is something constant no matter where we go, no matter what we are going through. Just like when a cloth is dyed with a certain color, that color becomes its identity. And so the religion of Allah, worshipping Allah alone should become our identity. say oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, do you argue with us about Allah, while he is our Lord and your Lord, for us, our our deeds and for you or your deeds? And we are sincere to him? Or do you say that Ibrahim is married and is how can you are Kolb and the descendants were Jews are Christians? Meaning did they belong to a group like this? Did they carry all these labels? Say, are you more knowing or

01:59:04--> 01:59:54

is Allah and who is more unjust than one who conceals a testimony he has from Allah and Allah is not unaware of what you do tilaka omoton called harlots, that is a nation which has passed on lahoma Casa but wonderful Mecca sabaton it will have the consequences of what it earned. And you will have what you earned while at aluna America and we are Madonna Lune and you will not be asked about what they used to do. This ayah has been repeated again. Why? So that a person does not rely on the on the accomplishments of others on the good deeds of other people, that my parents, my ancestors were very righteous, that we are from the womb of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam Yes, this is

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

something to be proud of, but not something to rely upon. Each person is required.

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

sponsible for what they do, and each person will get what they have earned, no bearer of burden will bear the burden of another and each person will get the result of their own deeds. No one will be questioned about the deeds of another and on the Day of Judgment, no person's lineage no persons can will benefit them. So we all need to take our lives seriously. We all need to prepare for the day that we will meet Allah, Maliki oma Dean. And for that, we have to ask Allah subhanaw taala for help a year canal boo, what a year kindness 13 you will only worship You will only ask for help.
