Are you in a shape Pinilla? Jean Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim wa Salatu was Salam are a lot of sodium Karim rubbish rahane suddenly way assembly MD where he will have the term melissani Yakubu Kohli along Matthew Colby was said deadly Sani was rude Salima de calbee amin aerobill. Al Ameen.

00:00:29--> 00:01:26

So any action that we begin with sincerity, remember that it results in a very beautiful outcome also, because the result of an action depends on the intention on how that action began. So if we are spending so much time learning the Quran reflecting upon the Quran, reading the Quran, what is it that we should intend? What should we intend with this effort of ours? First and foremost, it is important that we seek the approval of Allah subhanaw taala that we want to please Allah through this effort. Secondly, we want to spend time with the Quran in order to increase in our righteous deeds. Remember that this is like an investment that will bring you benefit not just in this life,

00:01:26--> 00:01:57

but also in the next life. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, in the levena at Luna kita Bella, what are called masala what unfuckable mimma was upon our home silver Anwar alania tan yo Joon at Java Lang taboo. Those who recite the book of Allah established prayer and spend out of what We have given them openly and secretly expect a trade a profit, a game that will never perish.

00:01:58--> 00:02:50

Thirdly, we should study the Koran in order to revive our heart. Because remember, without the Quran, the heart is barren and desolate. So the plan is like rain that brings life to empty to dead land. And Allah subhanaw taala sends down rain from the sky to revive to revive the earth and he also sends down his verses to revive hearts. Then we should study the Quran in order to get contentment and peace in our hearts because Allah be Vickery, Larry Takoma inula kulu. unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah, hearts are assured. Also remember that when a person learns the Quran, they recite the Quran, the Quran is also a healing, because Allah says we're known

00:02:50--> 00:03:41

as the luminol for any man who has she fell on wahama to limit meaning, and we send down of the Quran, that which is healing and mercy for the believers. So as you spend time with the Quran right now, have the intention of seeking healing, that Oh Allah, heal me, my physical, spiritual, emotional ailments, all of them. Also, we should study the Quran for guidance, because the Quran has been sent to guide us we should study the Quran in order to increase our Eman our faith, because the believers are such that when they listen to the verses of Allah, what he that truly utterly him as to who that whom he manna, it increases them in in aemon. Also, when a person spends time with the

00:03:41--> 00:04:26

Quran, then this is actually an act of worship. We are reading, listening to the book of Allah because this is an act of servitude to Allah, something by which we hope for reward, and we should study the Quran in order to be saved from the fire of hell. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if the Quran was put in a skin and thrown in the fire, it would not burn. So by keeping the Quran by bringing the Quran in our lives, we are as though protecting ourselves from the fire of hell. Also remember that when a person spends time with the Quran, then they will get the intercession of the Quran on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said an

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

animal Scheffer own when Maha non Muslim upon the Quran is an intercessor. It truthful prosecutor meaning when a person will spend time with the Quran will allow the Quran to lead him a person will follow the Quran, then the Quran will also lead him to paradise on the Day of Judgment. And we should study the Quran to improve our lives to make our lives better, because the quote on his mobile rock it's blessing is abundant in no time said that if people knew

00:05:00--> 00:05:53

What isn't the recitation of the Quran with contemplation, they would leave everything to occupy themselves with the recitation and reflection of the Quran. And finally, we should study the Quran for worldly and for eternal benefits, especially Jenna to fit those in, we'll call him said there is nothing more beneficial for the slave, neither for this life nor the next, nothing that will draw him closer to salvation than the book, reflection on the Quran. and spending time reflecting upon it, and focusing all of his thoughts upon the meaning of its verses. So reciting the Quran, learning the Quran, listening to it, reflecting on its meaning, is one of the best things that a person can

00:05:53--> 00:05:57

do. So with this intention, we will begin Jews number two

00:05:59--> 00:06:54

are other Billahi min ash shaytaan of regime say, oh no. sufa amin anass malwa la human capability humility. khanewal la Ha. Colella Hill. machico. Well, marieb ye D Manisha illa sloturi Mr. Cream, the foolish among the people will certainly say what has turned them away from their Qibla which they used to face, say to them, to Allah belongs the east and the west, he guides whom He wills to his trade path. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated to Medina, then for the first 1617 months, he prayed facing the Kaaba, sorry, I'll begin again. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated to Medina, then for the first 16 or 17 months, he prays Salah, facing the vital

00:06:54--> 00:07:45

muck this which is in Jerusalem, and this was also the Qibla of the People of the Book. And then he was instructed to pray facing the Kaaba. And on this change of Qibla, there was an uproar, there was a lot of criticism, from the hypocrites from the people of the book, and also the polytheists. And what was the criticism that if this first blow was valid, then why change it? And if this and if the carrabba is the right Qibla, then why face the previous one for so long? So Allah subhanaw taala responds, say a coup Lucifer, ha, the foolish will say, meaning, those who criticize say this, because of their foolishness, those who criticize, criticize because of their foolishness, because

00:07:45--> 00:08:37

remember, it is not the direction of the East, or the direction of the West that has virtue in it, the virtue is actually in obeying Allah, only law Hill machico Well, mohareb, both the east and the west belong to Allah. Therefore, the main thing in worship is actually obeying Allah subhanaw taala. Remember that everybody worship is to comply with the commands of Allah, whether the deed is internal or external, it is a word or an action or bother is to do it in the way that Allah subhana wa tada likes, the way that he has legislated. And this is the essence of worship. So if Allah commands his slave, that the slave should face the East in prayer than the servant who seeks Allah's

00:08:37--> 00:09:31

approval, we'll turn towards the east without any hesitation. So the believing servant, who has surrendered to Allah is not in the place of criticizing the command of Allah. This goes against the very spirit of surrender. The person who objects who criticizes the commands and decrees of Allah is actually being called foolish over here. And this is something that teaches us a very important lesson, that if there are people who criticize Allah, then what do you think about yourself? Will people not criticize you? Sometimes you are 100% right? You are saying something that is true, yet people criticize you, they call you crazy. So what should a person do in this situation? Do not

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

allow this toxicity to affect you do not pay attention to it. However, check yourself that am I doing what is right? What I am doing? Is it according to the commands of Allah. If it is, then I should do it with full confidence and determination. And if it is not, then I should correct myself. Sometimes people comment on the different aspects of your life. Some comments are in fact so hurtful, so

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

Painful that they bring you to tears. And these are matters over which you don't always have control. For example, if a person is not married, people keep pestering. When will you get married? If a person does not have children? Well, why don't you have children? If a person went through divorce? Well tell me your entire sad story. So learn to ignore such comments. Because a lot of time, a lot of times these comments are actually coming from a place of foolishness, a place of safaga ignorance. So if we're not doing anything wrong, if the choices that we have made are in accordance with Allah commands, then do not care about what people say. Because if we make our goal

00:10:45--> 00:11:39

the pleasure of people, then we will be miserable. The main thing is to seek the approval of Allah azza wa jal. So the person who rises above the criticism of people, only they can be consistent in doing good and such a person is intelligent. In contrast, the person who objects who criticizes the words of Allah, the commands of Allah and His Messenger than such a person is foolish. So are you going to listen to the fools? Are you going to be affected by what they say? Never work ellika john nachum oma don't wear CELTA and thus we have made you it just community. What's up also means best, an excellent oma. Why, so that you will be witnesses over the people, and the messenger will be a

00:11:39--> 00:12:27

witness over you. So view people and their matters, in light of the knowledge that Allah has given you. Don't blindly imitate or accept everything. Use the knowledge that Allah has given you. And remember that on the day of judgement, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be a witness over you. And we did not make the Qibla, which you use to face before, except that we might make evident who would follow the messenger from who would turn back on his heels, meaning this was just a test. So remember, that when circumstances in life change, from ease to difficulty, from health to sickness, free time to occupation, and vice versa? These are all different shades of trials in life.

00:12:27--> 00:13:16

Remember that this entire life is in fact a test. Leah Beluga comb, a Yukon arson where am Allah, that Allah is testing you? Which of you is best indeed. This is the main thing, that regardless of how the circumstances are, one thing, one thing should not change. And that is our servitude to Allah, that we continue to worship Allah with righteous deeds. And remember that a deed is righteous, when it is done with sincerity, his love for Allah and in the way that Allah soprano, tada likes the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is exactly what was being examined over here, that who is it that will obey Allah and follow the messenger? And who is it that

00:13:16--> 00:14:07

will turn back on his heels? And indeed, it is difficult? It is difficult, the change of Qiblah like many other things in life is actually hard for many people. The thing is, that change is something that people find hard. Why? Because we fall into set patterns, we fall into set routines, and we go on autopilot, and when things change, we get uncomfortable and we get frazzled. However, what in Halak hubiera, it is difficult, except for who except for those whom Allah has guided. So the person who is guided by Allah, the person who accepts those changes, and remains obedient to Allah, then that change is not difficult for him. And never would Allah have caused you to lose your faith.

00:14:08--> 00:14:59

Salah is actually being called faith, amen over here, meaning the prayers that you performed facing the previous Qibla there is still valid and this shows us how important Sunnah is, Allah has not, Allah will never allow to be lost. Allah will never cause you to lose your faith, meaning Allah will not waste your previous prayers. So the companions were assured over here, that your deeds have not gone to waste because you prayed in the previous direction, in obedience to Allah, just as now you will pray in this direction, in obedience to Allah. So the main thing is actually obedience to Allah. Indeed, Allah is to the people, meaning to all people. He is ever kind and ever

00:15:00--> 00:15:10

merciful. These are some names of Allah. And these names tell us that Allah subhanaw taala is ever kind, ever Merciful or oath, Rahim

00:15:11--> 00:16:03

comes after rahima when it is said so and so is that I hate, it means they're kind, but when they're very kind, they're also described as little Oof. And the fact is that Allah azza wa jal is truly kind to his servants. In fact, he is most kind to his servants, more than anyone else. He is more affectionate to his servants than a mother is to her child. He is kind to his servants in this world and also in the next he opens ways of guidance for his servants and provides ease to his servants, as he says in Nara, Buchan, la Ufa Rahim, indeed your Lord is to you, surely affectionate and merciful. Now, some details of the change of color are given, we have certainly seen the turning of

00:16:03--> 00:16:49

your face toward the sky, because remember that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam expected this command, and in anticipation, he would look up to the sky, and we will surely turn you to a Qibla with which you will be pleased. So turn your face to word unless you that harm. So the command came. And wherever you believers are, turn your faces toward it. Indeed, those who have been given the Scripture, well know that it is the truth from their Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what they do. And if you brought to those who were given the Scripture, every sign, they would not follow your Qibla. So the fact is, that the people who don't want to believe you who don't want to accept you,

00:16:49--> 00:17:38

they will never accept you. So stop worrying about their criticism, nor will you be a follower of their Kibler. So don't try to appease them, nor would nor would they be followers of one another's Kuebler. You see, the Jews would face one side, the Christians would face another site. So when they're not united in their Qibla, how dare they point fingers at you. So if you were to follow their desires, after what has come to you of knowledge, indeed, you would then be among the wrongdoers. So this shows us that following the desires of people, after gaining knowledge is actually a form of a form of wrongdoing. And levena atina, whom will keytab yardi funa. Who come I

00:17:38--> 00:18:29

already found out Urbana home, those to whom we gave the scripture know him, as they know their own sons, and a person has no difficulty in recognizing their own child. But indeed, a party of them conceal the truth. While they know it, they recognize the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, yet they conceal the truth about him. So remember, concealing knowledge is actually a major crime. It's a major sin. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he who was asked something he knows and he conceals, it will have a bridle of fire put on him on the Day of Resurrection, and help him in Robic The truth is from your Lord. So never be among the doubters. While he couldn't be with your

00:18:29--> 00:19:20

hat on who am well leha for each is a direction to word which it faces, meaning each person has some center of life, a goal towards which they keep turning to. So what should be your center of life, what should be your goal, Allah tells us first the vehicle highlight. So race to good, meaning you Muslims should compete should try to get ahead in doing good things. And this is something that we need to think about. How do we make use of our free time when we are done with our obligations? What is it that we tend to do? We tend to scroll our phones? And if that is what we do? What is it that we watch? What is it that we read? Is it just things of pastime, or also something that will

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

increase us in good deeds? What is it that we share? What is it that we read? What is it that we watch? This is something that we need to think about? Allah says foster the whole hierarchy and sybok is to compete to race in something so rush Don't delay. And in general also, we need to think about our lives that before we get to free time. What is it that we are always preoccupied with? For some people, their center of life is their work or their home or their kitchen or their children? What is your center of life? What is it that is consuming you? What is it

00:20:00--> 00:20:53

That is that your health, your wealth, your time are going into, wherever you may be, Allah will bring you forth meaningful judgment all together. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent. So from wherever you go out meaning for prayer, then turn your face to word, administer the alarm. And remember, there is a consensus on this, that for Salah for obligatory prayer, facing the Qibla is a precondition meaning without it, prayer is not valid. And indeed, it is the truth from your Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. And from wherever you go out for prayer, turn your face toward a mystical Hold on, and wherever you believers may be, turn your faces to word it in order

00:20:53--> 00:21:43

that the people will not have any argument against you. Except for those of them who commit wrong meaning some people will forever criticize you for that they'll show home so fear them not will show me but fear me, Do not fear people fear Allah. And remember that the person who fears Allah inclines to Allah and the person who inclines towards Allah obeys Allah, and Allah will complete his blessings upon such a person, whether you take money or material a comb, and it is so I may complete my favor upon you when our local methadone and that you may be guided. So this shows us that Allah will show such people the path of guidance. So remember, it is the sign of the guided that they fear

00:21:43--> 00:22:35

Allah, the prophets of Allah. They feared only Allah wale Shona who when I shown a hidden in the law, they feared Allah and they did not fear anyone else except Allah. The angels also were home in Hershey, it must be Kuhn, they are fearful out of all of him. The righteous and Lydian as shown on the home, there are those who fear their Lord. So so the believers should fear Allah, instead of fearing people, and especially in matters of religion, they should rely upon Allah and keep obeying Him. So when it is time to worship, obey Allah Do not fear people, whether it is the matter of Salah, of wearing the hijab of earning a lawful income of speaking the truth, Fear Allah, because in

00:22:35--> 00:23:23

the fear of Allah is salvation, it ultimately saves a person. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said three things save a person, and one of them is kushtia to LA he facility will alanya fearing Allah, in private and in public. And remember that the eyes that weep from the fear of Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, such eyes will not enter the fire until the milk returns to the other, meaning it's impossible. Such eyes such a person will certainly be saved. Come out autosol nafi como una sola min calm, just as we have sent among you a messenger, another blessing that Allah has given us that He has sent a messenger to us, who is this messenger, he is

00:23:23--> 00:24:12

from yourselves a human reciting to you our verses, and purifying you, and teaching you the book and wisdom and teaching you that which you did not know. So Allah has sent a role model for the guidance of the believers. And this role model, this messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did four things. What are those four things, he recited the verses he purified the people, he taught them the book and the Wisdom. So as part of his oma, this should be our goal also, that we learn the verses that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited, and we recite them to others, that we purify ourselves with the teachings that he brought, and we purify others, that we learn the book that he taught, and we

00:24:12--> 00:24:17

teach it to others, that we learned the wisdom that he taught, and we teach it to others.

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

For the guru knee at code comb, wash guru Li while at UK falloon. So what is it that you should do in return for or in response to such a huge blessing? Remember me, I will remember you and be grateful to me and do not deny me? What is it that the believers have been commanded over here to remember Allah? Allah says in the Quran, what guru la casa de la remember Allah much, abundantly, a lot. Why law law come to fly home, in order that you may be successful. Remember that the nikolova law is one of the best things that a person

00:25:00--> 00:25:26

can do. And in fact, the best deed is that a person departs the world they leave from this world, while they are remembering Allah. Allah says that I am with my servant, as long as he remembers me and move and moves his lips in my remembrance. And remember that the way that we remember Allah is the way that we will be remembered by him as

00:25:27--> 00:26:17

the vicar of Allah is a source of reward. It increases a person in their faith, it increases them in the love of Allah and fear of Allah, it brings them closer to Allah. And it is also a source of strength. Ibrahim said, of the benefits of the kid is that it gives strength to a person so that he is able to do with the vicar of Allah, what he could not even think of doing without it. So anything that you find hard, then increase in the vicar of Allah and Allah subhana wa tada will give you the strength that you need to do your work. And remember that the best form of the Quran is Sunnah. Yeah, uh, you Hello, Dina armano Is there a new discovery was Salah, oh, you who have believed seek

00:26:17--> 00:27:10

help through patience and prayer. Indeed, in Allah hamara. Sabine, Indeed Allah is with those who are patient, he helps them so we see that after they could and sugar sobor is mentioned they can is to remember Allah sugar is to be grateful for the blessings of Allah Subhan is to be patient over hardships. And the way to practice. All of these is through Sunnah. So the person who prays ends up remembering Allah and thanking Allah, and is in fact observing patience, and such people receive the help of Allah, they are successful in the Lucha masabi routine. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Raja Polycom real movement, amazing is the state of the believer, meaning he

00:27:10--> 00:27:12

wins in every situation.

00:27:14--> 00:28:04

The most painful loss that a person can experience is death, the loss of a loved one. So it is said and do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah, they are dead, rather, they are alive, but you perceive it not meaning you do not know how it is life. You see, for patients, we really have to change the way we think. When we change our thinking, we make it positive, then we can be patient. Remember that everything has two sides to it. Even if something seems terribly painful in one way, there is certainly good for the believer in it in another way. So when you look at the glass as half full, and not half empty, when you realize that the departure from this life is

00:28:04--> 00:28:56

only the beginning of another than it is easy to have patience, because now you're not just viewing the loss. You're not just looking at what you have lost, you're actually looking at what you have gained. So summer is possible with the shift in thinking with a change of perspective. And submit is something that we need throughout our lives, because in life, there will be many trials, what kind of trials will in a blue one now come and we will surely test you with what with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits wobba should is slobby Dean but give good tidings to those who are patient. So remember that each person will be tested in one way or another.

00:28:56--> 00:29:23

Through these massage eclampsia, the five trials which Allah has already told us about, so we should be prepared. What are these trials sometimes there will be fear like that of an enemy, or on what the future holds of a disease of loss. The mother of Masada, his Salah, feared for the safety of her child, the bunny is sorry, we're afraid when fit around came from behind them.

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

Sometimes there will be joueur hunger, literally having nothing to eat. Sometimes there will be financial loss or the loss of lives, the death of a loved one. And sometimes there will be loss of fruit and fruit is the outcome of a process. So at times, a person sees the product of their hard work, the fruit of their labor, they see it get ruined before their very eyes. And this can be something incredibly painful. For example, parents raise their child

00:30:00--> 00:30:53

With so much love and effort, they invest so much in his or her upbringing, education, and right when that child is all grown up, fully settled in their career in their life, death comes knocking. And truly, the loss of a child is something very painful. We think that's such a time this should not have happened. But we cannot object. We cannot criticize the decree of Allah, because the real owner only took back what rightfully belongs to him. So our effort did not actually go waste. Our now this is time for us to be patient, and those who are patient will have a measurable reward. As Allah says in the manual for sabi Luna Angela home bill at his job, those who are patient will get

00:30:53--> 00:31:51

their reward without any measure. Remember, losing something does not mean that it has ceased to exist. When a believer suffers loss and is patient than what he has lost is actually saved with Allah preserved for eternity. So remember, impatience is actually a lot of good. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said wylam enough is Sabrina Taka who hyaluron kathira and know that in being patient over what you dislike is much good. What Is that good? Allah tells us in the Quran, that the men and women who are patient will slub Idina will solve your odds, Allah has prepared for them are the Lola home model feel I will add you on our Lima forgiveness and a great reward. The

00:31:51--> 00:32:49

question is, what is what does it look like? subway is in a person's response. It is in what a person says how a person behaves at the time when disaster first strikes, and also later on, at the time when a person recalls that disaster thinks about it. So what is it that the patient say? And levena either asaba Tomasi, baton palu in La la, he was in LA he Roger own, who, when disaster strikes them, they say, indeed, we belong to Allah, and indeed, to him, we will return. So when a person remembers the Hereafter, then difficulties of this life actually become bearable. You see, patience is hard. When a person thinks that this life is everything. And if a person looks at only a

00:32:49--> 00:33:36

fraction is small percentage of the entire story, then the problem does seem unbearable. But when a person remembers the whole picture, sees things in their context, and they realize that this world is not everything, then they're able to bear the pain with patience. If a loved one has gone, they remember that we too are going they went first, we will follow soon, it's just a matter of time. So the person who remembers the hereafter who remembers their return to Allah, then sobor becomes easy for them. And besides, when a person is patient, then Allah gives them the best compensation in this life. Also, on Santa Marta de la Mora and her when she lost her husband. She said in early lair who

00:33:36--> 00:34:28

were in La Jolla, June Allahumma junee. Famously Betty will actively hide on minha or Allah reward me in my hardship and replace it with what is better than it and what happened. Allah gave her the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as her husband. So as at such a time, say in alila, he was in La Jolla do turn to Allah and also say Alhamdulillah WHY, WHY Al Hamdulillah? Because there is good for the believer, even in the loss that he experiences. What good is there a lot of good, more than what a person can imagine? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when the slave is ill, Allah sends two angels to him. And they look at what he says to his visitors. If he praises Allah, and

00:34:28--> 00:35:00

glorifies Allah, when they come to Him, they take that up to Allah, even though Allah already knows what his slave has said. And Allah says, If I make my slave die, I will make him enter Paradise. If I heal him, I will replace his flesh with better flesh and his blood with better blood and I will face his evil deeds. This is the benefit of sober This is the benefit of saying Alhamdulillah at a time of loss, whatever

00:35:00--> 00:35:56

person loses a child and says in Nadella he were in la de la de Rouen and praises Allah. Allah says to His angels build a house in paradise for my slave and name it the house of praise. beighton hemd una de la sala were to middleby him. Those are the ones upon whom our blessings from their Lord, what our humor and special mercy what Allah iica humble Mota Dune and it is those who are the rightly guided three rewards for patience Salawat Allah's blessings with ullas mercy, he Daya ullas guidance and a person is desperately in need of guidance at a time like this. Then what do I do now? How do I navigate? How do I go about in this new reality? Allah says masaba muesli betting elaborate

00:35:56--> 00:36:52

vanilla one minute min Bella. Yeah, the one law will be cliche in early, no disaster strikes except by permission of Allah. And whoever believes in Allah, Allah will guide his heart. And Allah is Knowing of all things. And now, an excellent example of patience is given in the next verse, the example of Hajj of the woman who was left alone, in the barren and empty valley of Makkah, with a baby. Basically, as a single mother, there was not a house, no source of water, or another soul in sight. How did she survive in that wilderness? How did she spend those lonely days and nights? She spent it with sub with patients. And the thing is, that self pity is one of the most crippling

00:36:52--> 00:37:25

things. self pity does not allow a person to be patient to bear the hardship with sub or to exert effort and do what they can do and reap the rewards of patience. self compassion isn't necessary, but self pity is destructive. the patience of harder was so beautiful, that Allah preserved the various steps she took and made it a ritual for the pilgrims. It is a walk that men have to take.

00:37:27--> 00:37:27

It is

00:37:28--> 00:38:02

it is a ritual and Hajj, something that strong men have to do in her footsteps. Allah says in Nussle farewell more watermen, Shara Illa, indeed, of safa and marwah are among the symbols of Allah. So whoever makes Hajj to the house or performs aroma, there is no blame upon him for walking between them. And whoever volunteers good within Li does good than Indeed Allah is shakin, Allah is appreciative. He is arleen. He is knowing.

00:38:04--> 00:38:57

Indeed, those who conceal what we sent down have clear proofs and guidance, after we made it clear for the people in the Scripture. Those are cursed by Allah, and cursed by those who curse except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident those I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful, Indeed, those who disbelieve and die, while they're disbelievers, upon them will be the curse of Allah, and all the angels and the people all together. Such people are deprived of Allah's mercy, who, those who leave this world when they reject Allah, or his books, or his prophets, or his angels, or the Hereafter, or Divine Decree, because remember,

00:38:57--> 00:39:01

rejecting one pillar of faith is like rejecting all of them.

00:39:02--> 00:39:54

abiding eternally, they're in the punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved. What Allah who Camila Who? Our head and your God is one God, there is no deity worthy of worship except Him, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. So remember, the Lord of us all, the one who all should worship is only one God, Allah, who has no partner no equal, and what is the evidence of this? What are the signs of his oneness of the fact that he alone deserves worship, look at the creation around you. Allah says a nephew hope is somehow it will have all of this did not exist since forever. Allah created it. So indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

alternation of the night and the day, and the great ships which sailed through the sea.

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

With that which benefits people and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth, after it's lifelessness and disparate and dispersing, they're in and dispersing. They're in every kind of moving creature, and his directing of the winds and the clouds, control between the heaven and the earth are many signs for people who use reason. All of these things, draw our attention. They're inviting us that seek the one who has made all of this, who is making all of this happen. The one who has made all of this is the only one deserving of worship. So surrender to Him, humble yourself before him. Remember him, pray to Him, seek His approval, with

00:40:51--> 00:41:47

your sacrifice, your charity, your fasting, your words and your deeds, and all of your righteous actions. They should be done out of love for him in dedication to him, woman and nassima who mean don't lie under the and yet there are those among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals equals to him how you hate buena honker hubzilla, they love them, as they should actually love Allah. So remember, that the love of creation, whether it is of an idol, or a person, something inanimate, if it exceeds beyond proper bounds, and grows more than the loved one has for Allah. then this becomes chick fil Marhaba. And this kind of love should be avoided. Because Allah says when

00:41:47--> 00:42:28

levena Amano, I said to her Bella, but those who believe are stronger in love for Allah. So we need to look into our hearts. Who is it that I think have the most? Who was it that I remember the most? Who was it that is most important to me? Who is it that I put my trust in? Who is it that when I talk to them, or think of them, I become happy? I feel relieved? Who was it that I entrust my affairs to? That when I get hurt? Who is it that I remember first? When I am happy? I received some good news, then who do I remember first, when I get some wealth? Who do I?

00:42:30--> 00:43:28

Who do I save it for? The one you do it for is in fact your mark booth, the one whom you worship. Remember, the one that a person loves the most is in fact their Mar booth what they worship. So if we accept Allah as our mark booth, then we must love him the most. And when a person loves someone, they give them preference over everything else. They're able to make great sacrifices. Allah says, and if only they who have wronged would consider that when they see the punishment, they will be certain that all power belongs to Allah, and that Allah is Severe in punishment. So remember, love shows, it is reflected in our words, in our deeds, and love for Allah is the same. It is visible in

00:43:28--> 00:44:18

the way that a person interacts with people. It is visible in a person's lifestyle. When a person loves Allah, this tribe to worship Him, they're active, they're willing to serve the deen of Allah. They're eager to please Allah. There is a hence a strong greed, a yearning. Such a person finds joy in talking to Allah. They're pleased with the decrees of Allah. They're eager to meet Allah. A person who loves Allah finds peace in the remembrance of Allah. And when a lie is not remembered, they feel extremely anxious, very uneasy. A person who loves Allah loves to be alone with Allah. So he runs away from people. Such a person prefers being alone, and the love of the world leaves his

00:44:18--> 00:44:19

heart.

00:44:20--> 00:44:33

And there is love for all whom Allah loves every person and every deed that Allah loves. And such a person gives preference to Allah over everyone besides Allah.

00:44:34--> 00:44:59

And they should consider and they should consider that when those who have been followed dissociate themselves from those who followed them, and they all see the punishment and cut off from them or the ties of relationship, meaning those whom they loved besides Allah will be the same ones who will abandon them on the Day of Judgment, completely disowning them

00:45:00--> 00:45:49

And those who followed will say, If only we had another turn at worldly life, so that we could disassociate ourselves from them. As they have dissociated themselves from us, meaning we will abandon them the way they have abandoned us, we would never love them the way that we did. This was such a huge mistake that we made. Thus will Allah show them their deeds as regrets upon them, and they're never to emerge from the fire. This is the outcome of those who are drowning in the love of dunya. Right now, the love of labor of love lot of other than Allah, that they will be forever in regret, regret at the time of death, regret in the grave, and certainly a lot of regret regret on

00:45:49--> 00:45:49

the Day of Judgment.

00:45:51--> 00:46:43

Now in the following verses, some commands are given. And remember that so little bacala is actually a very comprehensive solar. It contains commands, Romano de la Martin, who took 12 years to learn sootel, Bakula, and the day that he completed it, he slaughtered a camel out of gratitude to Allah. Then we learned that his son is an aroma he learned in eight years, and we want to learn it in two and a half days. Alhamdulillah. spending any amount of time with the Quran is excellent. But after this make the intention to study the surah in detail, to spend more time learning what the solar teaches us because the solar contains knowledge of what is lawful and unlawful. It also contains

00:46:43--> 00:46:50

matters of acleda our beliefs, and it also teaches us a HELOC manners, though, the way that we should deal with one another.

00:46:52--> 00:47:40

Yeah, a yohannes all mankind, all people are being addressed over here, because this is something what is being said over here is relevant to all people, what is being said, eat from whatever is on the earth that is lawful and good. And do not follow the footsteps of shaytaan indeed he is to you a clear enemy. Two rules pertaining to food have been given over here. The first that the food should be halal, it should be lawful. And second, it should be. It should be good, clean, delicious and suitable for your health. And this is something that we should ask a lot for Allahumma inni iluka illman nafion What is company even when I'm alone with the Kabbalah they're all I ask you for

00:47:40--> 00:48:07

beneficial knowledge. I asked you for this country, even pure provision and and deeds that are accepted by you. We should ask Allah for lawful risk lawful provision, Allahu mfine be helideck and how long will elneny be public government see work, and we should pray what Zuko now, what untitled was a thing that will allow you to provide for us and you are the best of providers. Allah says over here,

00:48:08--> 00:48:58

let when at the W Hotel watershape on do not follow the footsteps of shape on indeed he is to you a clear enemy, how he only orders you to evil and immorality, and teaches you to say about Allah, what you do not know. And when it is said to them, follow what Allah has revealed. They say rather, we will follow that which we found our forefathers doing. Allah asks, even though their fathers understood nothing, nor were they guided, will they still follow their the example of those who disbelieved is like that of a shepherd, who shouts at what here is nothing but calls and cries, meaning sheep, so calling upon other than Allah is like this. There are deaf, dumb and blind, so

00:48:58--> 00:49:47

they will not understand. Now the people of men are specifically addressed or you will have believed eat from the good things which we have provided for you and be grateful to Allah. If it is indeed him that you worship. A lot of the believers over here. What he tells his messengers to do. Yeah, uh, you have Russell Coloma not a bad word. Malou saleha. All messengers, eat of the good things and do righteous deeds. So eat what is lawful, but also make sure that it is good. And when you eat what is good, can be grateful to Allah do righteous deeds. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the believer is like the honeybee. It eats what is good, it produces what is good, and it neither

00:49:47--> 00:49:59

breaks nor ruins when it lands on. So eating good food is not wrong, but eating carefully and thanking Allah subhanaw taala This is important

00:50:00--> 00:50:54

Not thanking the logic the provider that is wrong. So eat lawful, good. And then thank Allah. And remember that thankfulness sugar is a three levels. Remember three words, emote, express and exercise, meaning, feel the emotion of gratitude in your heart. feel gratitude in your heart. Secondly, express it verbally. And thirdly, exercise gratitude, meaning do good things of gratitude to a loss of power. And when a person eats what is lawful, and shows gratitude than eating also becomes an act of worship, something that is rewardable he has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah. But whoever is

00:50:54--> 00:51:42

forced by necessity, neither desiring it nor transgressing its limit, there is no say upon him, there is no sin upon him. So if a person must eat what is unlawful to survive, in order to save themselves from dying, then they can eat what is unlawful, but they must not indulge, and they must not desire it. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Indeed, they who conceal what Allah has sent down of the book, and exchange it for a small price, they consume not into their bellies except the fire, and Allah will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will he purify them, and they will have a painful punishment. Those are the ones who have exchanged guidance for error and

00:51:42--> 00:52:36

forgiveness for punishment, how patient they are in pursuit of the fire, that is deserved by them, because Allah has sent out the book and truth. But Indeed, those who differ over the book are in extreme dissension than it is said, lay sell below unto Alou, would you How come people al machete Well, marieb, a very comprehensive description of piety is given over here. This is why this verse is called a little bit, the verse of piety. So if you want to know what piety really is, then learn this ayah Allah says, righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west. But true righteousness is in one who believes in Allah, the last day, the angels, the book, and the

00:52:36--> 00:53:25

prophets. So the first thing is that our belief should be correct, then the good to the creation, how, and who gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives gives wealth to the relatives, relatives first, why, because there's double reward in giving to the relatives, then orphans, why, because they're little, and they're also in need, then the needy, because they have unfulfilled needs, then the traveler, because they're tired from their journey, and are in need of hospitality. And then those who ask, even if they're not in need, because some people beg and you can see that they're not in need, but still give them and for freeing slaves, because this is a greatly virtuous

00:53:25--> 00:54:11

deed, then the rights of a law are mentioned, and who establishes prayer and gives a cat and then fulfill their promise when they promise this is especially mentioned over here, a mark of a righteous person is that they fulfill their commitments. they complete their contracts, and those who are patient in poverty and hardship, and during battle. Notice how patience is also highlighted over here, because it is the foundation of righteous deeds. The one who does not have patience, cannot do good deeds. And if he doesn't, if he does perform some good deeds, he is not able to remain consistent without patience, nor is he able to preserve the reward of good deeds without

00:54:11--> 00:54:56

patience. Because if a person does not have patience, it is very easy to give up. It is very easy to waste the reward of good deeds by showing off by reminding people by boasting. Those are the ones who have been true, this is truthfulness. And it is those who are the righteous. So these are the traits of the righteous the people of taqwa the people have been who will be successful. Then it is said, all you who have believed prescribed for you is legal retribution for those who have been murdered. The free for the free, the slave for the slave and the female for the female, meaning the killer will be killed not anyone else in his place. But whoever overlooks from his brother anything

00:54:56--> 00:55:00

meaning if the air pardons the murder then there

00:55:00--> 00:55:45

Should be a suitable follow up and payment to him with good conduct. This is an alleviation from your Lord and of mercy. But whoever transgresses after that will have a painful punishment. And there is for you in legal retribution, life, meaning a saving of life, when the cartel, the murder is punished severely than the lives of many will be saved. Apparently, it seems as if another life has been lost, but in reality, many lives will be saved like this, or you people of understanding that you may become righteous. Now, when someone dies, they leave their property behind what should be done with that, it is said prescribed for you, when death approaches any one of you, if he leaves

00:55:45--> 00:56:37

wealth, is that he should make a bequest, it will for the parents and near relatives according to what is acceptable, a duty upon the righteous have gone along with the green meaning those who have the core, make their wills and they also fulfill the wills of the deceased. Remember, that inheritance should only be distributed after the will of the deceased has been carried out, because Allah says in the Quran mimbar they will say you can use our behalf after carrying out the will of the deceased when it comes to inheritance, then the legal heirs and their and when it comes to inheritance, then the legal heirs and their respective shares have all been appointed by a law. So a

00:56:37--> 00:57:26

person cannot choose which relative of theirs should inherit from them, and which relative of theirs should not inherit. This is something that Allah subhanaw taala has already decided, but Allah has also given a gift to his servants, by allowing them to make a will Seiya a will in the favor of a non heir of up to a third of their property only and even a third has been described as a lot. Why has this permission been given? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Xia de la Combe Fie our Malecon as a means of increasing you in your good deeds, so that a person can leave some of their estate for righteous, noble causes. Why? So that they may continue to receive reward, even after

00:57:26--> 00:58:03

they have left this world. So in one's life, a person should spend their wealth in righteous causes, and also for after they have died, they should leave a will, it will see you then whoever alters the bequest after he has heard it. The same is only upon those who have altered it. Remember, altering the will of a deceased is something sinful. Indeed, Allah is hearing and knowing. But if one fears from the bequeath either some error or sin and correct that which is between them, there is no sin upon him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

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

Then it is said, Yeah, are you Hello, Idina Amano. All you who have believed quotevalet como siyam decreed upon you is fasting, as it was just as it was decreed upon those before you. Why, what is the purpose, low contact akun that you may become righteous, so that you may be protected, you may be safeguarded. Remember, fasting is an act of worship. It is an obligation, which in the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is fuddled on mood dizzy on, it is an obligation that will serve that will suffice a person in the hereafter. It is a very unique act of worship in the hula, hula, it has no equivalent, it is agenda is shield. When a person fasts with faith and expectation

00:58:55--> 00:59:45

of reward, all their past sins are forgiven. It is a deed that is private between the servant and his Lord. This is why Allah says in the holy, what a juicy be, it is for me, and I will give reward for it. And we learned in this ayah fasting produces the poor, and the person who has dukla then all their affairs become easy. This is why fast happily, an entire month of fasting has been prescribed. Why so that we can develop the Aqua the ability to leave sin to avoid sin. Just as we leave our favorite foods and our favorite drinks while fasting. We should also leave since the last panel data does not approve off deeds that are lost count it does not like because taqwa means that a person

00:59:45--> 00:59:49

does good and taco also includes leaving sin.

00:59:50--> 00:59:59

fasting for a limited number of days, not all year round. So whoever among you is ill or on a journey during them then and eat

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

call number of days meaning there to be made up later on. So missed fasts must be made up later in the year and upon those who are able to fast but with great hardship such as someone who is very old or is terminally ill than they should give a ransom as substitute and what is that feeding a poor person for each day of fasting. So the video for one fast is feeding a poor person one meal and whoever volunteers excess so for example, they give two meals or feeds more people, it is better for him. So there is no limit to doing good. But too fast is better for you. If you only knew so at least try shadow Ramadan and Lady ncfe hilker on the month of Ramadan is that in which was revealed

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

the Quran? In fact, all divine scriptures were revealed in the month of Ramadan. So Ramadan is important because of the Quran. So what do you think about the Quran itself? What do you think about the blessings of the Quran, and the mercy that it brings, because of which this entire month was chosen for fasting, and the night in which it was revealed was made Laila to cut? What is the Quran, it is a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever cites meaning the new moon of the month, then let him fast it and whoever is ill, or in a journey than an equal number of other days, Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship. So when

01:01:35--> 01:02:21

you're not able to fast in Ramadan because of a temporary condition, that make up the fasts later, this is the ease and he wants for you to complete the period. So make sure you complete the number of fasts and to glorify Allah for that to which he has guided you, and perhaps you will be grateful. So another objective of fasting, besides the poor is sugar. And remember, in the month of Ramadan, one should pay special attention to making the raw so Allah says what either Salah curry body or knee for a new corrib and when my servants asked you concerning me, that where's our Lord is in the air is he far, tell them indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he

01:02:21--> 01:03:16

calls upon me, there and then meaning Whenever you call upon Allah in the morning, or in the evening, at home, or at home, because now there is no work from outside, work from home also, wherever you are, night or day, any place when you call upon Allah, Allah responds. Allah says, Foley esta je Bulli. So let them respond to me. Because remember, a relationship is two ways. So if you want to be heard, you better hear and you listen to the other. Do not take anyone for granted. Don't just be a taker, also be a giver. And remember that sins actually become a barrier between the servant and his Lord. So if we want our daughters to be accepted, then we should also respond to

01:03:16--> 01:04:00

Allah. We should accept Allah's commands, and they should believe in me, they should have hope, they should pray with determination that they may be rightly guided. The fact is that we need to make the laws for our own benefit. We need guidance. So keep making the law, in order that you may be guided by Allah throughout your life, no matter what you are going through. And Ramadan is one of the best times to make the wrong especially for those who are fasting, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there are three people whose draw is not rejected, and one of them is will slow mo Hector, you flood the fasting person until he breaks his fast. So as long as you're fasting, make

01:04:00--> 01:04:49

the raw. Now some more rules related to fasting are given. It has been made permissible for you, the night preceding fasting, to go to your wives meaning for sexual relations, because during the past, this is not permissible. But during the night, it is their clothing for you, and you are clothing for them. And a person is in need of their clothes. Remember that clothes, cover a person, protect a person and beautify a person. So take care of this dress. This this garment that Allah has given value it value this relationship and give it the attention that it deserves. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, meaning you were having relations in the night while you were initially

01:04:49--> 01:04:59

unsure of its permissibility in the month of Ramadan. However, he has accepted your repentance and forgave you. So now have relations with them and seek that

01:05:00--> 01:05:42

which Allah has decreed for you, meaning the enjoyment that Allah has made permissible for you, then seek it without guilt, and eat and drink, meaning in the night until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread of the night, meaning until the time that the fast begins, then complete the fast until the sunset, and do not have relations with them, as long as you are staying for worship in the mosques, meaning during erotica, if this is not allowed, these are the limits set by Allah, so do not approach them. Because if you approach them, then you will fall into them, you will violate them. Thus does Allah make clear his ordinances to the people that they

01:05:42--> 01:06:14

may become righteous? They're saved from a bad outcome in this life, and in the next, and do not consume one another as wealth unjustly? And how is that through theft or deception, cheating, robbery fraud, so do not do that. nor should you send it in bribery, to the rulers in order that they might aid you to consume a portion of the wealth of the people in sin. While you know. Meanwhile, you know that it is that it is unlawful for you don't do that.

01:06:16--> 01:07:06

He has aluna Garnet Hill, they ask you about the new moons, meaning about the changing form of the moon, how it increases decreases, its waxing and waning. Tell them their measurements of time for the people and for hedge. So the increase decrease of the moon. This is basically a calendar which Allah has given you, which allows you to determine the times of worship when to go for Hajj, when to fast in Ramadan when Ramadan begins and it ends. And it is not righteousness to enter houses from the back. But righteousness isn't one who fears Allah and enter houses from their doors and fear Allah that you may succeed, enter houses from their doors, because the Arabs, they used to think

01:07:06--> 01:07:53

that it would bring bad luck if they returned from Hajj and they entered the house from the main door so they would enter from the back door. So what is this ayah teaching us that do things in the right way? Don't be superstitious. approach things from the right way. adopt the correct manner. fight in the way of Allah, those who fight you but do not transgress Why? Indeed, Allah does not like the transgressors. So do not transgress In the name of Allah as religion also. Because if you do that, you will lose a lot of love, and kill them wherever you overtake them, and expel them from wherever they have expelled you meaning Makkah, and pfitzner is worse than killing their religion.

01:07:53--> 01:08:38

they persecuted you because of your religion that is worse than killing, and do not fight them at all unless you that how long until they find you there. But if they fight you, then you will to kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. And if they seize, then Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. A lot of people will quote the previous ayah, but they will not think about this ayah if they cease, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. fight them until there is no fitna. And until worship is for Allah. But if they seize, then there is to be no transgression, except against the oppressors. fighting in the sacred month is for aggression committed in the sacred month, meaning if

01:08:38--> 01:09:26

someone fights you in it, then you may fight them back. Otherwise, this is not allowed, and for all violations is legal retribution. So whoever has assaulted you, then you assault him in the same way that he has assaulted you. You're allowed to take revenge, but fear Allah and fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who fear Him. So do not commit transgression in his name. Do not violate his limits. If you want the help of Allah, then you better have the power of Allah and spend in the way of Allah and do not throw yourselves with your own hands into destruction. Because remember, stinginess is something that leads to destruction, and do good Indeed, Allah loves the doors of

01:09:26--> 01:09:59

good. So if you wish to gain the love of Allah, then be good, do good. We saw in the previous verses how we're encouraged to spend on relatives and on those who are in need, and that is excellent. Here we are being told to spend in another way, which is the subete Illa. For the deen of Allah for its advancement, promotion, its strength. Generally, when we think about charity, we only think about people in need, and that is certainly charity. But it is not the only way of spending for the pleasure.

01:10:00--> 01:10:21

Allah, we must also think about spending on our massage on our mosques on our religious institutions. Why? Because if the massages are there, if the religious institutions are running, only then will we have our Deen and if our Deen is there, then we are safe. And if not, then we are ruined.

01:10:22--> 01:11:07

Then Hajj is mentioned and complete the Hajj and aroma for Allah, purely for Allah's pleasure for his sake, not for the sake of getting a title had or had, you know for the sake of Allah, nor should you do it for the praise of people. What a team will have dual immortality law for the sake of Allah. But if you are prevented, then offer what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals, meaning if you are meaning if you intend to go for Hajj and you have left for Hajj already, but something has prevented you from completing the Hajj, then you have to offer the sacrificial animal and do not shave your heads until the sacrificial animal has reached its place of slaughter. And

01:11:07--> 01:11:55

whoever among you was ill or has an ailment of the head than a ransom of fasting three days or charity or sacrifice and when you are secure, then whoever performs aroma during the Hajj months followed by Hajj offers with can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals and whoever cannot find or afford such an animal than a fast of three days during Hajj and of seven when you have returned home. Those are 10 complete days. This is for those this rule is for all those whose family is not in the area of mustard in heaven and fear Allah and no gain knowledge that Allah is severe in penalty. So in this ayah we learn about some rules related to hedge. Remember, hedge is an

01:11:55--> 01:12:09

obligation and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said consecutively perform hajj and umrah why, because doing so removes poverty and sins just as a furnace removes filth from iron

01:12:10--> 01:12:55

hatch is during well known months. So whoever has made Hajj obligatory upon himself there in by entering the state of your Halong there is to be for him, no sexual relations and no disobedience and no disputing during Hajj. So how does not a honeymoon nor is it a time to fight? The entire focus should be on Allah azza wa jal and whatever good you do in the journey of Hajj Allah knows it whatever Salah you perform charity you gave there are you make Vicar you do? And some say that when you enter Makkah, then you should not leave it before the before completing the recitation of the entire Quran. So whatever. So whatever good you do, Allah knows it. And take provisions, whatever

01:12:55--> 01:13:41

you need for the journey, take that along with you. But indeed, the best provision is fear of Allah. So go there with the fear of Allah so that you harm no one and you also perform the rituals properly and fear me will you have understanding, there is no blame upon you for seeking bounty from your Lord during Hajj. But when you depart from out of fat, then remember Allah, Allah, Allah, she didn't hold on, and remember him as he has guided you, not in your own made up ways. remember Allah, the way that he has instructed, for indeed you were before that among those astray, then depart from the place from where all people depart, you see the kadesh, they would consider themselves too special

01:13:41--> 01:14:34

to go out of the Hallam to alpha. So they're told over here depart from the place from where all the people depart. Meaning at hedge everyone is equal, and ask forgiveness of Allah. This should be our ultimate concern that Hajj Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. And when you have completed your rights, remember Allah like your previous remembrance of your father's or with much greater remembrance. Remember a line a better way with more attentiveness. And among the people is He who says, a little banana, Tina fifth dunya our Lord give us in this world, meaning he only prays for the world and such a person will have in the hereafter no share at all. But among them is He Who

01:14:34--> 01:14:42

says robina attina fifth dunya hacer una woodfill era de hacer una working are either but na

01:14:43--> 01:14:59

among them is He Who says our Lord, give us in this world that which is good health safety Eman dako tawakkol love of Allah, mercy and in the hereafter also that which is good forgiveness, seeing Allah

01:15:00--> 01:15:45

Gentle for those, the company of the righteous, Allah give us good here in this life and also give us good in the next life in the hereafter and protect us from the punishment of the Fire, meaning take us safely and directly into paradise, not through hell. So when you go for Hajj, when you make daraz, don't just ask for dunya don't just go for worldly benefits have a greater goal, because Allah can give us both Allah can give us dunya and the hill and this is the route that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would make very, very frequently, because it combines all the good things of this life and of the next life, those will have a share of what they have earned. And

01:15:45--> 01:16:34

Allah is swift in account. So each person will get what they have earned, whatever a person strives for, is what they will get. The thing is, that when a person becomes greedy for this world, then by default, they neglect the hereafter. And since the Hereafter is better than this world, this world is just like a wing of a mosquito or less than that near Allah, then such a person is settling for what is less, and when they are lowering their standards, they also fall in the sight of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us that our is drawing near, and people are only increasing in their greed for the world. And by that they're only increasing in their distance from

01:16:34--> 01:17:21

Allah. So yes, it is fine to like the things of this world to want the things of this world to have worldly goals, but they should not become our ultimate concern. Our ultimate concern should be the success, the good things of the hereafter. And remember a lot during spec. And remember Allah during specific numbered days, meaning the days of Hajj, then whoever, then whoever hastens his departure in two days, meaning for me now, this isn't a yam with the sheep, there is no sin upon him. And whoever delays until the third, there is no sin upon him. For him who fear is Allah. Again, the main thing is taqwa. We give a lot of importance to the external aspect of righteous deeds. But the

01:17:21--> 01:18:09

internal state is also very important, and fear Allah and know that unto him, you will be gathered, and of the people is he whose speech pleases you in worldly life, and he calls Allah to witness as to what is in his heart. Yet he is ulladulla Hassan, the fiercest opponents. You see, there's some people who do sweet talk, but when you deal with them, they're quick to fight and argue. They want people to listen to their words only. They don't want to be criticized or told anything. And God forbid, if someone does, they get triggered, and they fight with all their mind, overreacting, exploding in their rage, and Abdullah Hassan, and this is something that needs to be changed,

01:18:10--> 01:19:00

because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the most despicable amongst people in the sight of Allah is the ruthless, argumentative person. People also avoid such individuals. And Allah also does not like them, will who are alleged to have Islam, this is something that we need to avoid, do not argue, do not be stubborn. And when he goes away, he's tribes throughout the land, to cause corruption during and destroy crops and animals. And Allah does not like corruption, but a destructive personality, with people also arguing, fighting, hurting, and outside also with the environment also destructive. And when it is said to him, Fear Allah, then what happens, pride in

01:19:00--> 01:19:51

the sin takes hold of him, meaning he gets worse than before. sufficient for him is hell, and how wretched is the resting place, and of the people is He who sells himself seeking means to the approval of Allah, so humble, no ego problem whatsoever. Such a person is willing to give their life even to please Allah. This is how eager they are to please Allah. So if they're willing to sacrifice their life, what do you think? Will they not be able to control their tongue, they will bite their tongue instead of unleashing it, they will control their anger, instead of exploding with it. We'll learn how to open billary burn and such people who makes such great sacrifices for the sake of

01:19:51--> 01:19:59

Allah, that in order to protect themselves and others from a greater evil, they stop arguing than Allah is kind

01:20:00--> 01:20:50

To his servants, don't have the fear of missing out. Don't think you have to always fight for everything. Allies compassion and when you sacrifice for the sake of Allah, when you are humble for the sake of Allah, then Allah is kind towards his servants, expect his kindness or you have believed, enter into Islam calf pattern completely, and do not follow the footsteps of shaitan Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy. So whether it is the matter of marriage, or income, or food or divorce in every matter of life, follow the commands of Islam shaitan will distract you to other ways, but do not follow shaitan for internal tone, but if you deviate, after clear proofs have come

01:20:50--> 01:21:08

to you then know that Allah is Exalted in Might ny is any fear Allah, do they await but that Allah should come to them in covers of clouds, and the angels as well. And the matter is then decided, and to Allah all matters are returned,

01:21:09--> 01:21:55

as the children of Islam, ie how many a sign of evidence we have given them, and whoever exchanges the favor of Allah for disbelief after it has come to Him, then Indeed, Allah is severe in penalty. beautified for those who disbelieve is the life of this world. Why? Because this is all they know. And they ridiculed those who believe they make fun of the Muslims. But this is not going to stay like this forever. This is not going to last forever. But those who fear Allah are above them on the Day of Resurrection, the tables will turn and Allah gives provision to whom He wills without account. Mankind was of one religion, meaning at the beginning, all people were upon the same

01:21:55--> 01:22:43

religion. Then Allah sent the prophets as Bringers of good tidings and as Warner's and sat down with them the scripture in truth, why to judge between the people concerning that in which they differed, and none differed over the Scripture, except those who are given it, after the clear proofs came to them. Why, out of jealous animosity among themselves, many times, despite knowledge, people differ with one another. The reason is not ignorance. It is not that they don't know. It is actually ego. It is jealousy. It is pride. And Allah guided those who believed to the truth concerning that over which they had different in all of those differences. Those who asked Allah for guidance, those who

01:22:43--> 01:22:59

did not harbor jealousy and pride in their hearts, Allah subhanaw taala guided them to the truth by his permission, and Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path. This is why we should keep praying, a dino slid off but it was still came.

01:23:00--> 01:23:55

Now, trials and tests are mentioned has a bottom? Or do you think that you will enter paradise? Do you think you will enter gender without any effort without exerting any effort? without doing any hard work? Do you think entry to gender is that easy? While such trial has not yet come to you, as that which came to those who passed on before you, they were touched by poverty and hardship, and were shaken until even their messenger and those who believed with him said, When is the help of Allah, Mata Nasrallah? What is the Luz response? Allah in nanostone, la Hikari. unquestionably, the help of Allah is near. What do we see in this ayah? Allah tests, even his messengers, and his

01:23:55--> 01:24:47

believing servants, and sometimes these tests, these hardships go on for a very long time, to a point that even the prophets wondered, when is the help of Allah coming? Isn't it about time that we got relief? And remember, that when in difficulty fields too long, it trial fields too long, that remind yourself of international law corrib the help of a law is just coming. So what does that mean? That when there is a trial, especially something that affects your dean, then remain firm, and seek the help of Allah, through patience and through prayer, and do not give up because the help of Allah is coming shortly? Yes, aluna kamada unicorn, they ask you, what is it that they should spend,

01:24:47--> 01:24:59

say, whatever you spend a good is to be for parents and other relatives, and orphans and those in need, and the traveler And whatever you do have good indeed.

01:25:00--> 01:25:22

Why is knowing of it. So spend in different causes of goodness the opportunities are many, any good cause that you spend it. Allah is Knowing of it. This is why whatever you good, this is why whenever you give, give it for him, give it for his sake, not as a favor to others

01:25:23--> 01:25:58

than it is said, fighting has been enjoined upon you. While it is hateful to you, were a Santa crochet and wahoo highroller comb, but perhaps you hate a thing, and it is good for you were assigned to him, Bush a and what was Sharla calm, and perhaps you love a thing, and in reality, it is bad for you. So who knows, we'll love We are the moon. And Allah knows what untold laterna Moon while you do not know the person who understands this idea, their life becomes easy.

01:25:59--> 01:26:49

Think about the different things that you find hard. And remind yourself now that it is all about perspective, it is all about perspective, it's quite possible that what we find hard is in reality, good for us. And what we find easy is in reality, hard or difficult or in reality bad for us. So who knows what is really good for us and what is really bad for us. Allah knows. This is why trust his decisions, trust his decrees when a lot decide something for you, and accept it. realize that there is good in it for you, no matter how painful that situation is for you. Sometimes there is something that you desperately desire. You believe that it is excellent for you. But it is just out of reach.

01:26:49--> 01:27:17

It is unattainable, you are not able to get it. So don't remain sad over it. Don't be miserable over it. It looks pretty, it looks attractive. It looks like the best option for you. But remind yourself that every glittering thing is not gold, except the decree of Allah. And the one who accepts the decree of Allah believes in Allah, then Allah guides his heart when my human belay Yeah.

01:27:19--> 01:28:13

And also remember that every trial for the believer is actually a blessing. How, because a loss can become a means of expiation of since patients over loss, patients over hurt can become a means of great immeasurable reward for the believer. So for the believer, both hardship and ease are in reality, blessings, has an imbecile he said, Do not resent the tribulations in your life. Why? Because it is quite possible that your salvation lies in the very thing you hate. It is quite possible that what you hate what you dislike, what you find so painful, is the very way to your success. The obstacle is the way Yes, aluna currently, Cheryl, however, may peterlin Fie. They ask

01:28:13--> 01:28:58

you about the sacred month about fighting, they're in sin fighting, they're in his great sin, but averting people from the way of Allah and disbelief in him and preventing access to a master bomb and the expulsion of its people there from our actually greater evil in the sight of Allah. And fitna persecution is greater than killing, and they will continue to fight you until they turn you back from your religion, if they're able. And whoever of you reverts from his religion to disbelief and dies while he is a disbeliever. For those their deeds have become worthless in this world, and in the Hereafter, and those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide there in eternally. This

01:28:58--> 01:29:51

is the punishment for the apostate for the one who leaves Islam. This is why we should keep praying to Allah, Allah Bonilla to the Kuru Bana, our Lord, do not allow our hearts to be deviated. Indeed, those who have believed and those who have immigrated and fought in the cause of a law, those who do something, they're the ones who expect the mercy of Allah and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. They ask you about wine and gambling? Are they permissible? Are they good? Say in them is great sin. And if something is sinful, it is not allowed. And yet there is some benefit for people, but their sin is greater than their benefit. So whatever has more evil, more sin must be left. And when Allah has

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

said that there are sin in wine, then how could it be permissible and they ask you what they should spend you see

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

A person ends up spending a lot of money in gambling and online, then they're not able to spend in good causes. So it is said they ask you what they should spend, say the excess, meaning beyond your needs, then spend that in the way of Allah. Thus Allah makes clear to you the verses of Revelation, why that you may give thought to this world and the Hereafter, don't just think about now, don't just think about your immediate pleasure, also think about the hereafter. And they ask you about orphans say improvement for them is best. So ask yourself what is what is in the best interest of the orphans that are in your care. And if you mix your affairs with theirs, then they are your

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

brothers. This is permissible. And Allah knows the corruptor from the offender, meaning he knows your intentions. And if Allah had willed, He could have put you in difficulty. And he would not have allowed you to mix the affairs of the orphans in your care with your own, but he has granted you that allowance for your ease. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. Now, some laws related to marriage are given and do not marry polytheistic women until they believe and a believing slave woman is better than a polytheist. Man, even sorry. And a believing slave woman is better than a polytheistic woman, even though she might please you. So a Muslim man is not allowed to marry in

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

wish lick woman until she embraces Islam, and do not marry polytheistic men, meaning to your women, until they believe the same rule is for for a Muslim woman. And a believing slave is better than a polytheist even though he might please you, those polytheists invite you to the fire. But Allah invites you to paradise and to forgiveness by his permission. And he makes clear his verses to the people that perhaps they may remember.

01:32:04--> 01:32:50

You see a person takes on the effect of those that he lives with. This is why when it comes to marriage, a person must pay special attention to the Dean of the other to the religion of the other because the because their religion, their religiosity will certainly impact yours. With aluna Karen inhaled, and they asked you about menstruation. What is it say? It is harm. It is something painful, but it is not a disease. So keep away from your wives during menstruation, meaning do not have sexual intercourse. That's the only thing that is not allowed. And do not approach them until they're pure, not because they're unclean, but for their health. And when they have purified

01:32:50--> 01:33:38

themselves, taken a bath after the end of their period, then come to them from where Allah has ordained for you meeting then have sexual relations and the permissible way. Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves in the law, your habitual well being when you have Buddha Helene. Notice Toba is mentioned doba brings about inner cleanliness, it purifies a person of their sins, and bahara is of the body. Allah loves people who purify themselves from the inside and the outside. Nisa will come health or lack home, your wives are a place of sowing of seed for you. So treat them with due regard and do you care. So come to

01:33:38--> 01:34:25

your place of cultivation however you wish and put forth righteousness for yourselves and fear Allah, yes, fear him in the bedroom also, and know that you will need him. So don't disobey Allah, even in this. So don't disobey Allah, even in this very personal matter, and give good tidings to those who believe while at the jar Lula haram butterly a man who come and do not make your oath by Allah, and excuse against being righteous and fearing Allah and making peace amongst people, meaning don't swear an oath that you will not do good, such as I will never pray, I will never fast etc, don't make such oaths and Allah is hearing and knowing Allah does not imply that Allah does not

01:34:25--> 01:34:48

impose blame upon you for what is unintentional in your bolts, but he imposes blame upon you for what your hearts have earned. And Allah is Forgiving, and forbearing for those who swear not to have sexual relations with their wives is a waiting time of four months. But if they're returned, then Indeed Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. This is a lab

01:34:49--> 01:34:59

for which is a maximum duration of four months, meaning if a if a man takes an oath that he will not be with his wife, he will not sleep with his wife, then there is a maximum duration

01:35:00--> 01:35:09

For this period for months, he cannot keep his wife like that forever. And if they decide on divorce, then Indeed Allah is hearing and knowing.

01:35:10--> 01:35:58

When multiple apart now the rules related to divorce are mentioned, divorced women remain in waiting for three periods. And it divorced women remain in waiting for three periods. And it is not lawful for them to conceal what Allah has created in their wombs, if they believe in Allah and the Last Day. So when a man pronounces divorce against his wife, there is a waiting period, meaning she's not allowed to marry someone else right away, she has to wait for three menstrual cycles. Why to reveal pregnancy, so that if she's pregnant, the paternity of the child is known. And their husbands have more right to take them back in this period of waiting, if they want reconciliation, meaning only if

01:35:58--> 01:36:39

they intend to live properly and decently with them, then they should take back their wife. And if the waiting period is over, and there was no reconciliation than the two, then the two shall separate. And due to the wives is similar to what is expected of them according to what is reasonable, when I wouldn't admit the Lula de la hinda Bill Maher, Wolf, meaning there are similar rights of the husband, and of the high end of the wife in a marriage. They're similar in our best formula Martin who said, I like that I should look nice for my wife. Just as I like that she should look nice for me, because Allah says, Allah who knows me through la de la hinda been maroof. And

01:36:39--> 01:37:21

then it has also said, well originally or la hypnagogia, but the men have a degree over them. This is not about piety, but in terms of responsibility and authority in the relationship of marriage, because there has to be one person to lead. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. Some people have a very hard time accepting this, the Raja that Allah has given to men, but if a person does not accept this knowledge of this rank, then there is double harm in this disobedience to Allah, and also denial of reality. We see over here that within the laws of divorce, rights and responsibilities of marriage are given. Why, because a marriage ends in divorce, when these rights

01:37:21--> 01:38:00

and responsibilities are compromised, of Allah comala time tan revocable divorce is two times then either keep her in an acceptable manner, or release her with good treatment. And it is not lawful for you to take anything of what you have given them, unless both fear that they will not be able to keep within the limits of Allah, meaning that if the man is giving divorce to his wife, then he cannot take back anything from her that he spent on her. No Maha, he cannot take back the gift that he gave her at the time of marriage, and he cannot take back anything that he gave her. After that.

01:38:01--> 01:38:49

Remember that Pollock is it remember that Pollock means to release to set free. So it is to end the marriage so that a woman is free to marry someone else. And the correct way of giving Pollock of giving divorce, that it should be first of all, given at a time when a woman is in a state of purity, when she's not menstruating, and in a period in which there were no sexual relations with her. Secondly, it should be pronounced only once at a time. Even our best will do love Martin who greatly reprimanded a person who gave his wife three divorces in one sitting, he said there are slight of a buck, you have disobeyed your Lord. And Pollock should not be used to abuse women,

01:38:49--> 01:39:31

neither to threaten them, nor to harm them. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam warned people against this. He said Aloma in the lead you have a very feigning Allahumma in the heritage you have called very fame Alia team Wilma, that Oh Allah bear witness that I have issued a warning concerning the rights of the two week ones, the orphans and the women. So the person who abuses a woman in this regard, then Allah will hold that person responsible. So if you fear that they will not keep within the limits of Allah, then there is no blame upon either of them concerning that by which she ransoms herself, and this is referring to hold up, in which case she will return the mob

01:39:32--> 01:40:00

that her husband gave her. These are the limits of Allah, so do not transgress them, and whoever transgresses the limits of Allah, it is those who are the wrongdoers and if he has divorced her, and this is referring to the third and final divorce, then she is not lawful to him afterward, until after she marries a husband other than him this is referring to halala and that should not be done deliberately. This is something my room meaning something for which

01:40:00--> 01:40:43

People are cursed if they do it deliberately, all the parties involved. But if it happens coincidentally, then that is fine. And if the latter husband divorces her or dies, there is no blame upon the woman and her former husband for returning to each other, if they think that they can keep within the limits of Allah, meaning if they think that if they marry again, and they can stay married, they will actually take their married seriously, only then they should get back together. These are the limits of Allah, which he makes clear to people who No, we see that as emotionally overwhelming divorce is, it is still important to go through this process in the right way,

01:40:44--> 01:41:03

according to the laws that Allah subhanaw taala has given with care and with attention because there is a due process. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a year come with Johanna yaku will Whoa, dude, beware of hell. Beware of the limits of Allah, meaning the commands that Allah has given, take them seriously.

01:41:04--> 01:41:48

And when you divorce women, and they have nearly fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms, or release them according to acceptable terms, and do not keep them intending harm to transgress against them. And whoever does that has certainly wronged himself before anyone else he is bringing harm upon himself more harm than he is causing to others. And do not take the verses of Allah in just how is that by not following them properly. And remember the favor of Allah upon you, and what has been revealed to you of the book and wisdom by which he instructs you, and fear Allah, and know that Allah is Knowing of all things. And when you divorce women, and this is

01:41:48--> 01:42:33

referring to the third time and they have fulfilled their term, then do not prevent them from re marrying their former or prospective husbands, if they agree among themselves on an acceptable basis, that is instructed to whoever Have you believes in align the last day that is better for you and pure, and Allah knows, and you do not know. So we see in this ayah that a divorced woman has the right to remarry, she should not be prevented. Now, the children are mentioned, mothers may breastfeed their children to complete yours, for whoever wishes to complete the nursing period. During this time, it is upon the father to provide the mother's provision and clothing according to

01:42:33--> 01:43:22

what is acceptable, meaning the man is supposed to give a stipend. That meaning the man is supposed to give a stipend to the mother of his child, even after he has divorced her. No person is charged with more than his capacity. And no mother should be harmed through her child, no father through his child. Amazing. The rights of both parties are preserved over here, because a lot of times after divorce, it is the children who are used to take revenge against the other party. And upon the father's heir is a duty like that, like who like that of the Father. So if a father if the father dies or goes missing, then his family has to provide for his children. And if they both desire

01:43:22--> 01:44:03

weaning through mutual consent from both of them, and consultation, there is no blame upon either of them. So a child may be weaned before two years, if necessary. And if you wish to have your children nursed by a substitute, there is no blame upon you. It is not wrong or sinful, as long as you give payment according to what is acceptable, and fear Allah and know that Allah is seeing of what you do. This is so beautiful. We see over here, that the rights of the child of the children are being preserved, the rights of the mother arms are being preserved, the rights of the father are also being preserved. You see, the breaking of a family is something painful, but it is still possible to

01:44:03--> 01:44:46

be just and fair, even after divorce. It is possible that the children are not deprived of what they deserve. The mother is not deprived of what she deserves, and the father is not deprived of what he deserves. And those who are taken in death among you, and leave wives behind. Now the case of the widow is mentioned. So they meaning the widows should wait for four months and 10 days. This is according to the lunar calendar and this is the Hadar the waiting period for a widow in which she should not remarry. And when they have fulfilled their term, meaning the waiting period, then there is no blame upon you for what they do with themselves in an acceptable manner, meaning when they

01:44:46--> 01:45:00

wish to remarry, then let them remarry. And Allah is fully acquainted with what you do. There is no blame upon you for that to which you indirectly allude concerning a proposal to women or for what you conceal within your

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

selves, Allah knows that you will have them in mind, but do not promise them secretly except for saying a proper saying, meaning when you are going to propose to a woman, then do so in the right manner. Do not slide into the DMS do not promise them secretly do so in the right manner, and do not determine to undertake a marriage contract until the decree period reaches its end. Meaning if the woman was recently divorced, let her waiting period come to an end before she marries again, if she's a widow, again, let her waiting period come to an end before she remarries and know that Allah knows what is within yourself. So be aware of him. Allah knows what is in your heart, and know that

01:45:45--> 01:46:17

Allah is Forgiving and forbearing there is no blame upon you, if you divorce women, you have not touched nor specified for them and obligation, meaning neither did you have relations with them, nor did you appoint a Maha and the divorce happened, no sit on this, because sometimes, there is a need, however, give them a gift of compensation, the wealthy according to his capability and the poor according to his capability, it provision according to what is acceptable, this is a duty upon the doers of good

01:46:18--> 01:47:08

and if you divorce them, before you have touched them, and you have already specified for them and obligation, then give half of what you specified unless therefore go the right meaning the man or the woman whose hand the the one in whose hand is the marriage is the marriage, the or the one in whose hand is the marriage contract, meaning the way he forgoes it, and to forego is nearer to righteousness. What that then so we'll have a nut comb. And do not forget graciousness between you soprano LA. Don't forget to do good at this time. At the time of divorce. Follow is to do more than what is do extra favor, meaning show kindness, show generosity at the time of divorce. Yes, Latin

01:47:08--> 01:47:52

someone Pablo bainer come because the upper hand is better than the lower hand. At the time of divorce. Typically people become greedy. There are very few people who fear Allah and think about what is their duty? What is it that the other party deserves? Latin several fabula bainer comb, Indeed Allah of whatever you do is seeing so when you do good, you do good to yourselves. So we see in this ayah neither forget the favors that others have done to you, nor forget to do favors to other people. You see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never forgot the follow the favors of Khadija de la Mourinho even years after she had passed away. Why? Because what in her husband alaric

01:47:52--> 01:48:35

demeanor, he man, proper faithfulness, remembering the good treatment of others. This is part of a man and the person who forgets the favors of others is such that Allah does not care for them.

Upon the righteous, thus does a lot make clear to you his verses that you might use reason. Now some important lessons are taught to some stories of the past. And I'm Tara Illa Latina How did you mean dare him? Have you not considered those who left their homes in many 1000s? Why did they leave fearing death.

01:50:47--> 01:51:29

This is a great investment opportunity. And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned. Remember, this is a Madani Sula, and every few months the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had to face another battle, the Muslims were being attacked from everywhere. So the Muslims were encouraged over here to spend in the way of Allah. And this was not just for that time, or only for one cause, but called hassane, a goodly load. Remember, it is what a person gives to Allah, in the way of a love for the religion of Allah. And Allah takes it as a loan upon himself, meaning something, that he will certainly return to the giver in this life and in the

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

next

01:51:31--> 01:52:17

lesson is to give in the way of Allah, while expecting reward from Allah, it is to give happily, and then a person is to give from lawful wealth on person is to give in the way of Allah without reminding of the favor later on, or causing hurt, then another story is mentioned. Have you not considered the assembly of the children of Islam in this was after the time of Musa when they said to a prophet of there's a point for us a kink, and we will fight in the way of Allah? Their Prophet said, Would you perhaps refrain from fighting if fighting was prescribed for you? They said, and why should we not fight in the cause of Allah when we have been driven out from our homes and from our

01:52:17--> 01:53:03

children, but when fighting was prescribed for them, they turned away except for a few of them. And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers. And their Prophet said to them, Indeed, Allah has sent to you by loot as a king. They said, How can he have kingship over us, while we are more worthy of kingship than him, and he has not been given any measure of wealth. According to them, a leader must be wealthy. The Prophet replied, Indeed, Allah has chosen him over you, and has increased him abundantly in knowledge and in stature, and Allah gives His sovereignty to whom He wills, and Allah is all encompassing in favor and knowing. So they said this about our loot, because they expected

01:53:04--> 01:53:32

that they would be given that position. Instead, instead of loot, they wanted that position of authority. And remember, that it is actually disliked that a person should seek a position of authority. But if a person is given a position of authority, then they should accept it, and they should seek Allah's help over it, and use that position to draw closer to a law not far away. The verse also shows us that those who have knowledge have given

01:53:33--> 01:54:19

the verse also shows us that those who have knowledge have pref have preference over those who do not have knowledge. Why was palu chosen because of his religion? Allah says Allah Allah is the winner Dina Yala moon, Valentina, Laila moon, those who know can they ever be equal to those who do not know? And secondly, he was chosen, because he had the strength that was needed for this position. So a leader must possess these two qualities, knowledge and strength. And their Prophet said to them, indeed, a sign of his kingship is that the chest will come to you in which is Sakina assurance from your Lord, and a remnant of what the family of Musa and the family of her own had

01:54:19--> 01:54:59

left carried by the angels, indeed, and that is assigned for you, if you are believers, Sakina is mentioned over here Sakina is the contentment and peace that Allah places in the hearts of his servants. Sakina brings calmness and courage at a time of fear, it gives strength to the heart of the believer, so that a person does not become weak or panic in the face of trial. Rather, they increase in their conviction, they increase in their faith in milk I am says Sakina is actually a station. It is a

01:55:00--> 01:55:32

rank of nearness to Allah that is given by Allah, meaning the person cannot acquire it by themselves, they cannot get there by themselves. This is something given by Allah. This is why a person must pray for Sakina and recite the verses of the Quran that mentioned Sakina. And these are six verses, one verse in Surah Baqarah verse 248, two verses instead of the Toba, verses, 26 and 40, and three times instead of

01:55:33--> 01:56:01

three verses in certain verses 418 and 26. So recite these verses, and listen to them, so that Allah will give you Sakina and when you will have Sakina you will be protected from the onslaught of of satanic whispers, you will be protected from the onslaught of satanic whispers, you will be when you recite these verses, and you have Sakina

01:56:12--> 01:57:01

And they will remove your fear. They will replace your fear with courage and they will strengthen your faith. Recite these verses so that you can get Sakina from Allah azza wa jal. And when pollut went forth with the soldiers, he said, Indeed, Allah will be testing you with a river, a test in the way of Allah. So whoever drinks from this river is not of me. And whoever does not taste it is indeed of me, accepting one who takes from it in the hollow of his hand. This was a test of self control, but they drank from it except a very few of them. Then when he had crossed it, along with those who believed with him, they said, there is no power for us today against jelutong and his

01:57:01--> 01:57:50

soldiers. Why did they say this? Because overindulgence is something that makes a person weak, but those who were certain that they would meet Allah, they said, How many a small company has overcome a large company by permission of Allah, so get up and do your part. And Allah is with the patient. And when they went forth to face dilute and his soldiers, they said robina A frill, Marlena sobre la, our Lord, pour upon us patience with a bit Aqua mana and plant firmly our feet warm.

dilute and Allah gave him the kingship and Prophethood and taught him from that which He willed. And if it were not for Allah, checking, meaning removing some people by means of others, the Earth would have been corrupted, but Allah is full of bounty to the worlds. So we see in this ayah that Allah protects his servants himself. He defends them, he saves them from the oppression of oppression of oppressors. Because if the oppressors have all their freedom, they would cross all limits. So this is the way of Allah, that he breaks the power of the oppressors. How? By bringing others even though jello was so mighty, he was defeated by pollute and his army and would This is the only Sam he
