Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

are we lagging in a show Pinilla Jean Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Hello Kitty team. Rubbish writing is suddenly where suddenly MD

a loss of panagora says in the Quran enamel minuman alladhina either do Kira la who would you that kulu boom what either to Leah to Allah him a to who that whom amen while our beat him yet our Calhoun the believers are only those who when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful. Let us examine the state of our hearts is the heart attentive towards Allah. And when his Verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith. Again, let us examine our hearts. The purpose of listening to the Quran of reading the Quran is to increase in our faith to strengthen our faith. So let us not just listen to the Quran with our ears, allow it to reach the heart. What Allah Allah

00:01:36--> 00:02:31

beaming at our Kowloon and upon their Lord, they rely because when they learn the Quran, they learn who their Lord really is. So they begin to rely upon him. And as they learn the Quran, their move to action, which action alladhina up Muna sada woman ma Rosa Punahou, me and Phil Kuhn, the ones who established prayer and from what We have provided them, they spend, Allah says about such people, hula aka Hmong, mean una hepco. Those are the believers in truth, la hum Dora Jatin are in dollarbie him, for them are degrees of high position with their Lord, when mouthfeel and forgiveness what is going to carry him and a noble provision. In these verses we learn that when the verses of Allah are

00:02:31--> 00:03:27

recited upon the believers, it increases them in faith. She has already said that this means that the reason for this is that they listen to the verses of Allah with a present heart. They listen to the verses of Allah when attentiveness so when they listen, they actually reflect upon them. And when they reflect upon the verses, this results in their increase of faith, because the double reflect reflecting upon the Quran is actually one of the actions of the heart. So when a person does the double on the Quran, what happens? First of all, they get to know meanings which they were unaware off, or they get reminded of matters which they had forgotten. Or they develop the desire to

00:03:27--> 00:04:17

perform good deeds, or the desire to receive the generosity and reward of their Lord, or the fear of punishment. And the fear of sin is produced in their heart. And all of these matters increase faith. I ask Allah subhanaw taala that as we go through the Quran, as we reflect upon each Jews every day, this becomes a means of increase in our faith also, so that we come to know of what we were previously unaware of. We get reminded of things which we have forgotten, we develop the motivation to perform good deeds. We develop the desire to receive the reward of our Lord, and we develop the fear of his punishment, and we stay away from sin. May Allah subhanaw taala increase us in our

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

faith? I mean,

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

inshallah, we'll begin just number three of the Quran

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

till Cal rasuluh for Bernard Barba whom Allah burb Minh home man kalama la, one of our Barlow, the hondajet those messengers, some of them we caused to exceed others. Among them were those to whom Allah spoke and raised some of them in degrees. We see over here that Allah subhanaw taala mentions his profits His messengers. The fact is that a loss of panel data has sent prophets and messengers in every era for the guidance of man

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

unkind It is said that there were about 124,000 prophets or in some narrations 114,000. Regardless, there have been over 100,000 prophets, and out of them 300 were messengers, there were rustle and among them also Allah subhanaw taala chose some above others in different ways. For instance, five of the messengers they are known as mooloolah as those of determination and there are no la sera Ibrahim RD is Salaam masala is Salaam, Risa de Sena, and Hamad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So these messengers were such that some of them were given preference over others. And this was in a number of different ways. We see that even within the creation, we see how things are not always equal. The

00:05:57--> 00:06:46

five fingers on your hand are not the same. They're not identical, people do not have equal wealth, all trees are not the same. And there are multiple wisdoms behind these differences. We so our job is not to constantly compare between things, and where something has been given preference over another, we should accept that reality we should not feel jealous over there, because this is the decision of Allah subhanaw taala This is his distribution. And if we are given preference in some way, then we should be grateful for that, we should acknowledge that and we should thank Allah soprano data for that. So the messengers, some of whom Allah chose above others, how was that Allah

00:06:46--> 00:07:34

tells us, among them were those to whom Allah spoke, meaning he directly spoke to some of them such as musar de Sena, or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And he raised some of them in degrees, meaning they were given preference in other ways. For example, Ibrahim or he sent them was made the Imam. He is the father of the prophets. He has the title of Halina law, the friend of Allah, and we gave Isa the son of money on clear proofs, what kind of clear proofs he could heal the blind, the leper, he performed various miracles that were unique to him amongst all of the prophets and messengers, and he performed them all by the permission of Allah. And we supported him with the pure

00:07:34--> 00:08:20

spirit, meaning with the angel gibreel. So he started his Salaam even spoke as a child. If Allah had willed, those exceeding them, would not have fought each other after the clear proofs had come to them. But they differed, and some of them believed, and some of them disbelieved, meaning. This is what happened to the nations of the prophets. And if Allah had willed, they would not have fought each other. But Allah does what he intends, meaning Allah gives freedom to his servants, and some and some of them misuse this freedom. Then the believers are addressed. Yeah, uh, you had levena, Amano. All you who have believed unfaithful spend from what mimar was a canal comb from that which

00:08:20--> 00:09:10

we have provided you give forward pass on from the things that we have given you. Don't just keep everything to yourself, and why give for your own benefit. Before there comes a day meaning the Day of Judgment, what kind of it is that in which there is no exchange and no friendship and no intercession? And the deniers they are truly the wrongdoers so those who do not believe in Allah, do not give him his right. Such people are learning they're committing loan wrong on themselves. It hasn't been said that those who do learn those who do wrong, commit cowfish know, those who commit COVID are the ones who commit learning. So this shows us that disbelief is actually a form of

00:09:10--> 00:09:59

injustice. And now, the greatest verse of the Quran is mentioned, which is if you could see the verse of the throne, which is the best description of Allah azza wa jal, this is a verse that protects the reciter against the shall clean against the devils. It is a verse which takes its reciter to paradise. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever recites i a tool could see immediately after every fun prayer after every prescribed prayer, then there will be nothing standing between him and his entering paradise except death, meaning the person who recites it after every Salah, then they will go to Jenna. So add this to the list of things that you're going to do

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

that

00:10:00--> 00:11:04

must recite ayatul kursi after every fault prayer what is a little could see Allahu La Ilaha Illa who will hire you will kill you? Letter who sinner tune one unknown. La Houma is semi wati wa marfil of men the lady in the who Ellerbee ibni yanapuma Bina ad him one alpha home. What are you halona vishay in mineralnye he Illa de Masha was the arco cu who somehow what you will, what are you do who have Luna wahoo Li Li eular, Aleem. We learnt earlier about the power of Allah's Name, the greatness and the blessing that his name contains. This ayah, I could see contains five names of Allah, not one, but five. And it also contains 26 attributes of Allah, the attributes of Allah are His

00:11:04--> 00:12:01

qualities, his traits, such as the fact that he is one or the fact that drowsiness and sleep do not overtake him. This ayah is filled with the praises of Allah. And this is why it is the greatest verse, not the longest, but the most magnificent, the greatest verse, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in in Allah Holy Son and worship attain two condition medic, that it it has a tongue and lips, and it declares the purity, the holiness of the sovereign meaning that glorifies Allah subhanaw taala. What does this mean? Allah, there is no deity except Him, meaning Allah is the only one worthy of worship. Why? Because he, because He alone is Allah, He alone is the one true God

00:12:01--> 00:12:58

who is he and he and chi you the EverLiving, the Sustainer of all existence, he is the ever living, he is the one who is perfect in his existence. So he was always there, and he will always remain because he is perfect in himself, he is perfect in all of his qualities. This is why he will never die, he will never suffer any decline, because he is free from any imperfection, he is independent of all in fact, he is the source of life and hate. And along with that, he is alpha you the Sustainer of all existence. So he is extremely independent. So he needs no one. But everyone needs him. Everyone depends on him. He is perfect in his actions. Otherwise, how could anything exist? And

00:12:58--> 00:13:53

how you look at you, you see, if we don't get food, we die. If we develop respiratory issues, we don't get oxygen, we would die. A tiny microscopic virus can cripple us It can bring our lives, our infrastructures, our businesses to a complete halt. This is why we must learn to rely upon not ourselves but Allah And hey, what are what color and and how you lead Elijah mood. Allah says rely upon the EverLiving The one who does not die. Our reality is that could luminara Lee have fun? Everyone upon the earth will perish. wearable call wedge will not be cuddled Jalali will a crumb and there will remain the face of your Lord, order of Majesty and Honor. So who is Allah?

00:13:55--> 00:14:49

So who is Allah He is and how you will kill you. Not only does everyone's life and existence depend upon him, their sustenance also depends upon him. So if he does not give, if he does not allow, not a thing could exist, our existence is proof of His perfection. Our existence is proof of his knowledge of his care. So perfect is he that neither drowsiness overtakes him nor sleep, neither sleep overcomes him, nor does he sleep by choice, because sleep remember is a form of imperfection, and Allah is free of any imperfection he is and how you will consume, he does not get tired, he does not need rest, so do not confuse him with the creation. To Him belongs whatever isn't the heavens

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

and whatever is on the earth, meaning he is the real owner. So everything besides Him is actually owned by him. He

00:15:00--> 00:15:55

is the creator. So everything besides him is his creation, he is the giver. So everything besides Him is provided by him. So all are powerless before the all powerful, how powerless, who is it that can intercede with him except by his permission, no one can even speak before him without his permission. This is why our ultimate concern should be to please Allah subhanaw taala. Because the dunya and the earthhero both belong to Allah, He knows what is presently before them, and what will be after them. This is how vast his knowledge is. Remember, Allah has knowledge is a shaman, meaning it includes everything, so nothing is absent from his knowledge, it is common, it is perfect, so it

00:15:55--> 00:16:46

is free of any error, no matter what place it is, no matter what time it is, no matter what date it is, Allah knows about it all. So no one can lie to him, no one can hide from him, no one can escape him. And they encompass not a thing of his knowledge, except for what He wills. You see, we are only able to learn something when Allah allows us to know about it. So knowledge is actually sustenance, it is a gift from Allah. And we are only able to know about Allah, that which he allows us and that is only through revelation, because he is more knowledgeable about himself than anyone else. So if we want to know who Allah is, let us not make assumptions, let us not hear what people say. Let us

00:16:46--> 00:17:42

see how he describes himself. Was there a call to see you who somehow work he will have his call to see his footstool extends over the heavens and the earth, meaning it is so vast that it could contain all of the skies and all of the earths and yet the curacy is not his greatest creation. That is the ouch so vast is his salon and their preservation tires him not. He's been guarding them from the beginning, constantly providing deciding giving and his treasures have not diminished and he is an early alim He is the Most High. So he is above all, and everyone is beneath him, everyone is below him and he is under Aleem the most Great, so he is greater than all and everyone is weak

00:17:42--> 00:18:31

before him. Let ecola have a dean, there shall be no compulsion in the religion. This means no one can force another to become Muslim. And there is no need to do so. Because the right course has become clear from the wrong. So when a person is Muslim, they must adhere to the laws of Islam. But when someone is not Muslim, then there is no need to force them. There's no need to coerce them, because the truth is clear. So whoever disbelieves in Paul who and remember the hood is anything that is worshipped besides Allah, whatever name it has, whoever disbelieves in thought hood and believes in Allah, only Allah, then such a person has grasp the most trustworthy handhold such a

00:18:31--> 00:19:25

handhold that has no break in it, meaning he has adopted a religion that will provide a solution to every problem and answer to every confusion. And Allah is Ever hearing and ever knowing. Allahu Allah you levena amanu Allah is the ally of those who believe. This is the benefit of a man that a person receives the friendship of Allah, the help of Allah. And what happens when Allah is a friend to those who believe you could lead your home mina lumati, in a new, he brings them out from darknesses into the light, because he loves them. So he rectifies their affairs for them. He takes care of them, he helps them and he does not surrender them. He does not leave them to anyone else.

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

He ensures their guidance, he gives them light, the light of a man, the light of knowledge, the light of clarity. And when Allah is the wellI of a person in the world, this means that he will be their welly their friend in the hereafter as well. This is why make this your ultimate goal. Make Allah your friend so Allah will be your friend. And those who disbelieve those who reject Allah, those who turn away from their Lord than their allies are thought who and what do they do then they take them out of the light

00:20:00--> 00:20:35

Darkness Subhan Allah, once upon a time there were in light, but when they turned away from Allah, then the thought took them away, out of light into darkness. So now they're misguided, falling in wrong ways. Those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide eternally they're in. And this is such a terrible end that a person can have. Now in the following verses, through different stories, we are shown how Allah soprano tada is the Wali, the friend of those who believe how he guides them, how he strengthens them.

00:20:36--> 00:21:19

Have you not considered the one who argued with Ibrahim about his Lord, merely because Allah had given him kingship? It is said that this was Kingdom route. When Ibrahim said, My Lord is the one who gives life and causes death. What an excellent proof Ibrahim already said, I'm gay, related to the origin final end of the creation. So this man said, Nimrod said, I give life and I also cause death. It is said that he said for two prisoners, and he killed one of them, and he spared the other and he said, See, I gave death and I get and I let one live. Ibrahim or his Sam said, Indeed, Allah brings up the son from the east. So bring it up from the west. Ibrahim Addison, I'm didn't argue

00:21:19--> 00:22:07

here, he just gave him another challenge. Okay. If you claim that you do all of these things, then try this show us your power. So what happened? The disbeliever was overwhelmed, overwhelmed by astonishment, he was left speechless, but still he did not accept the truth. Why? Because will love who les delco Moberly mean, and the law does not guide the wrongdoing people who are the wrongdoers, those who refuse even after seeing the truth, those who have made up their mind to deny no matter what evidence is presented to them. Now another example is given or consider such an example, as the one who passed by a township which had fallen into ruin. He said, how will Allah bring this to life

00:22:07--> 00:22:51

after its death? Meaning he wondered about the afterlife, about the resurrection, like many people do. So Allah causes him to die for 100 years. Then he revived him. And he said, How long have you remained, the man said, I have remained a day or part of a day, Allah said rather you have remained 100 years, look at your food and your drink. It has not changed with time, meaning your food and drink did not grow stale or moldy, because that is what Allah subhanaw taala wanted, that it should remain unchanged over time. And look at your donkey. It is said that it was completely we learned the ayah that it was completely decayed, the bones were rotting. And we will make you assign for the

00:22:51--> 00:23:39

people how because this man woke up after 100 years, this was truly a miracle and look at the bones meaning of your donkey, how we raised them, and then we cover them with flesh. So literally the donkey was revived back to life in front of him. And and when it became clear to him, he said I know our level. I know that Allah is over all things competent, Allah can do all things Allah can bring life to those who are dead. We see that Nimrod was not guided, even though he was given a clear evidence. Why? Because he had already made up his mind about what he wanted to believe. So he was merely arguing with Ibrahim Are you set up? He was not seeking answers, he was debating. This

00:23:39--> 00:24:31

person, on the other hand was guided. Why? Because he had questions. He was curious, he wanted to know. So Allah subhanaw taala guided him, what is the difference? The difference is that one came from a place of arrogance, and the other person came from a place of genuine, humble curiosity. Remember, it is not wrong to ask, it is not wrong to wonder. But it is wrong to think I know it all. It is wrong to be arrogant before the Lord of the worlds. So we need to look into ourselves. If we are really seeking guidance, then Allah will grant us certainty he will dispel our doubts because Allah Who will you lead in Amano, Allah is the friend of those who believe he guides them. And now a

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

third example is given and mentioned when Ibrahim said My Lord, show me what I'll be adding me. Oh my Lord, show me came for to heal Mota, how you will give life to the dead. Allah subhanaw taala said, Have you not believed? Ibrahim said yes, what I can do to my inner Colby, but I asked only that my heart may be satisfied. We see that Nimrod had denied the second person was dealt

00:25:00--> 00:25:51

And Ibrahima is Sam was certain in faith. And yet Ibrahim alayhis. Salam wondered, the thing is that each person wonders, but from a different place. Ibrahim right his center wanted it to meet men, he wanted contentment because the heart seeks assurance. So Allah subhanaw taala granted him that assurance how Allah said, Take four birds and commit them to yourself, train them, then after slaughtering them, put on each Hill, a portion of them, and then call them, they will come flying to you in haste, and know that Allah is Exalted in Might, and wise. So he can do all things, nothing at all is hard for him. So remember, there are levels of your pain, there are levels of conviction, the

00:25:51--> 00:26:41

first level is available your pain, to be convinced of something because of factual knowledge, then is the idea clean, to be convinced of something because of observation, you have seen it with your own eyes, and then is helpfully attained to be convinced because of experiencing the reality of something. No matter how well a person knows about something, and believes it lace and herbal iukl more aiyana seeing something is not like knowing it. Observation brings a higher level of faith. And this is why Ibrahim or you said I wanted to see he said areni show me how will resurrection happen. And it is necessary for us also to strengthen our yaqeen to increase to grow in our conviction,

00:26:41--> 00:27:26

because as even as rhodiola Martin who said earlier Kino and a man who could lose your cane is complete faith, it is the highest level of faith. So if Ibrahim or any Sam requested for intimate none for greater conviction, than we are more worthy of that. We should also seek ways of strengthening our faith, learn, ask, seek clarity, but always from a place of humility, always from a place of faith, not rejection, not arrogance, not argumentation. Remember, amen. faith grows with knowledge, and it also grows with righteous deeds. So what kind of good deeds should we perform? We have learned

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

about various good deeds, we have learned about Salah about fasting about the good, other good. And here in the following verses we learned about sadaqa specifically spending in the way of Allah, what is sadaqa sadaqa charity, the word South Africa is actually from slick, which is truthfulness. When a person actually truly gives. When a person actually truly believes then they will spend of what they have. And when a person gives, when a person spends, then it shows the truthfulness of their belief. How true is this person in their love of Allah? How true how honest is this person in believing the religion of Allah, in believing the promises of Allah? So what is the reward of

00:28:22--> 00:28:34

spending in the cause of Allah? Allah says, methadone, levena Yun Fukuyama whom feasibility law, the example of those people who spend their wealth in the way of Allah

00:28:35--> 00:29:29

in the way of Allah, what is that example? It is like that of a seed, meaning of grain, which grows seven spikes, one seed, it grows into seven spikes, seven stocks, and an image spike is 100 grains. So how many grains do we have now? 700. And Allah multiplies his reward for whom He wills and Allah is all encompassing and knowing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that whoever spends in the cause of Allah fie sebelah it will be recorded for him 700 fold, you see, one is to spend on those in need, for example, that you spend on their food on their clothing, shelter, medication, and this is excellent. This is sadaqa for which is reward, which will be a means of protection for a

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

person on the Day of Judgment. But imagine, if a person spends on a law a person spends for his theme, you see, one is to spend on a person on a human being for his food for his needs. And the other is to spend on a love for his religion. How blessed it is that money which is given to Allah for the cause of his religion, so that people can learn it and they can practice it.

00:30:00--> 00:30:49

They can learn it so that their doubts are removed. Their questions are answered. They develop in their yaqeen. You see we spend on the promotion of our businesses. But how blessed would that money be, which is spent for the promotion of Allah's religion, the spending, this kind of spending is such that the reward is multiplied. Why is the reward multiplied? Why is it more than any other form of charity, because its impact is far reaching. When you feed a hungry person, you only benefit that hungry person once, and you only benefit one person, they eat the food, and that's it. But when you spend on the religion of Allah, you benefit many, and you benefit them perpetually in this life. And

00:30:49--> 00:31:39

in the next life. For example, if you give money to cover the costs of, for example, an online platform from where people can learn their religion, then imagine every single person who learns from it, who does something good because of what they learned from their, and they're saved from the fire of hell, because of what they learned. And they earn the rewards in paradise because of what they learned. Guess what, you have a share in all of that your charity reached so far, your contribution had an impact on someone's eternity. So then what do you expect, the reward will be for such charity? Why would a lot not multiply your rewards for you, you see, the way that Allah has,

00:31:39--> 00:32:28

the way that Allah has superiority over his creation, than spending on the religion of Allah also has superiority over spending any other cause, this is the most often the most superior form of spending. So make sure that as you spend in different causes, spend, especially for the cause of Allah, to support the religion of Allah so that people can learn the religion spend on such causes. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if somebody gives in charity, something that is equal to a date, meaning something very small, from their honestly earned money, because nothing a sense to a leg sets good than Allah will take it in his right hand. And Allah will bring it up for its

00:32:28--> 00:33:16

owner, as any one of you brings up a baby horse till it becomes like a mountain. Imagine, like a mountain. Add to this, the fact that this charity is given in the cause of Allah, how great would be its reward, then it is said, Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, and then do not follow up what they have spent with reminders of it that I gave such and such, or other injury, that I sponsored this platform, and yet, I never go to free entry. Such people will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve, because they have made their investment with the one who definitely causes growth. So we learn the etiquette of

00:33:16--> 00:34:03

spending in the way of Allah from here that do not hurt the feelings of those who have in fact, helped you by accepting your charity. Because remember, there will be a time when there will be nobody to accept your charity, then what will you do, being able to give is actually a privilege, it's an honor, it's in fact, a favor on you, not the one whom you give to so instead of hurting them, and reminding them of the favors that you have done, what is better kolu maruf kind speech and forgiveness are better than charity, followed by injury. You see hurting people is something that destroys our acts of charity. So first, focus on kind speech on good manners so that when you do

00:34:03--> 00:34:50

give something you are able to preserve its reward will love ohanian haleem. And Allah is free of need and forbearing meaning he does not need you to give to his servants and then cause them hurt. Forgiveness as mentioned over here. Why? Because sometimes those whom you give to are the same people who actually hurt you, so forgive them. And if you cannot be generous with your money, then be generous with your words. Because while Kalamata Heba to Sadako, a good word is a charity. Then Allah says, Yeah, au Halina amanu led to lupino sada Kati COVID. Manual either, all you who have believed, do not invalidate your charities with reminders or injury, as does one who spends his

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

wealth only to be seen by the people. Meaning when you give in the way of Allah, then do not show off. Do not give it in order to be seen by others because such a person

00:35:00--> 00:35:13

He does not believe in Allah and the Last Day, because if he did that he would have given it with sincerity. He would not remind people of it, because if he gave it for Allah, then it doesn't matter whether people remember it or not, Allah remembers it.

00:35:15--> 00:36:02

His example is, his example is like that of a large smooth stone upon which has dust and is hit by a downpour that leaves it bare. they're unable to keep anything of what they have earned. And Allah does not guide the disbelieving people. Meaning whatever they have done, will go waste, it will bring no reward whatsoever, their entire reward will be wasted, their effort will be washed away. The problem is that sometimes we indirectly mentioned the favors we have done to others. Things like you know, we say things like we financially help someone, we got groceries for them, or we paid for their fees, or we gave a ride to someone and this hurts their honor. So be private when it comes to

00:36:02--> 00:36:46

your charity. Because you're not doing this for the sake of people. You are doing this for the sake of Allah. So keep it buried, keep it hidden. Keep it safe and secure with Allah. Don't waste it away, just like rain washes mud off of stones, leaving them bear don't wash away your good deeds, those who give charity with sincerity, and then do not follow it with reminders and hurtful words. It is such people who will be saved from fear and grief. And the example of those who spend their wealth seeking means to the approval of a law, a beauty law a model bottle, what does the term mean and foresee him and assuring reward for themselves what is their example, it is like that of a

00:36:46--> 00:37:35

garden on high ground, which is hit by a downpour. So it yields its fruits in double and even if it is not hit by a downpour than a drizzle is sufficient and Allah of what you do is seeing. So this is what happens when a person gives with sincerity. When a person spends happily whether it is a cat or sadaqa. Then Then they experience the joy, the sweetness of faith, as it is mentioned over here it with the law of mobility law. What does bita mean unfussy him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever does three things will experience the farm, the sweetness of a man and of them is what our foster care family he, by the bottom be had enough soup that he happily gives the

00:37:35--> 00:38:26

cat of his wealth. That is do you want him happily? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructed us to fear Allah and perform the five prayers to keep the fasts in the month of Ramadan. And to give the cat happily gives the cat happily and obey the leader. What is the benefit, he said you will enter the agenda of your Lord. So spending for the sake of Allah with happiness with sincerity is a means of entering paradise. Remember, that giving is something that helps the giver before it helps others. Research and positive psychology shows that giving actually makes us happy. Studies have shown that when subjects are given $5 for example, with instructions to give the money

00:38:26--> 00:39:21

to a stranger, their happiness increases more than subjects who are given $20 to spend on themselves. Imagine giving something to someone else will bring you more joy compared to what you spend on yourself. Giving even has a positive impact on our health. Giving promotes cooperation, it promotes social connection, it evokes feelings of gratitude. Giving is contagious, so spend and benefit yourself and bring benefit to others. Allah subhanaw taala asks us would one of you like to have a garden of palm trees and grape vines underneath which rivers flow in which he has from every fruit, but then he is afflicted with old age and has weak offspring. And at that time, his garden is

00:39:21--> 00:39:54

hit by a whirlwind containing fire and all of it is burned. Would you like that to happen to you? Thus does Allah made clear to you his verses that you might give thought. This is the example of the person who works hard for their entire life, investing a whole lot of money into his garden, so much work and effort. But then at the end, it is burnt to ashes. It ends when it is completely destroyed when he is in most need of it.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

So remember, if a person's intention is corrupt and it

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

They follow their charity, with rehab with showing off and reminding people of of the favor that they have done them of hurting their feelings than what's going to happen on the Day of Judgment, when they will be most in need of their good deeds, they will find nothing, their deeds will be scattered dust ashes, so a person's so a person should spend spend on good causes, but spend for the sake of Allah spend with sincerity and do not show off just as we take care of our hard earned money. We must also pay attention to preserving our hard earned good deeds. Allah says Yeah, uh you Halina Amano, oh you will have believed spend from the good things which you have earned. Another

00:40:47--> 00:41:32

thing we learned here is that, when we give, we should give from our own earnings and from that which we have produced for you from the earth, meaning give food also. And do not aim toward the defective there from spending from that, while you would not take it yourself except with closed eyes. So give to others what you would like to receive yourself and know that Allah is free of need, and praiseworthy. shaitan threatens you with poverty. Meaning when you're about to give what is good shaitan makes you fear that what will become a view if you give what you have to others, and ChildLine orders you to immorality, to be stingy and to give what is not worth taking or to show

00:41:32--> 00:42:18

off. While Allah promises you forgiveness from him and bounty and Allah is all encompassing and knowing you did hic Mata mania Shah, he gives wisdom to whom He wills and whoever has been given wisdom has certainly been given much good and none will remember except those of understanding. You see wisdom is mentioned over here. What is wisdom? What is this which of a person has they have abundant goodness, they have much good. hikma has been interpreted as the understanding of the Quran, or the knowledge of religion, or the fear of Allah, or the ability to make the right decision, intelligence. And if you think about it, all of this is related to wisdom. Because when a

00:42:18--> 00:43:02

person has wisdom, and they also have resources at their disposal, then they understand they realize what the best investment is, which they can make. Who is it that they should spend on? What cars should they give in? How much should they give. And this is why this is how they accumulate a lot of reward. A lot of goodness, you see people who have good sense of money, they make a lot of profit with their money, they invested in good places, and there are other people who don't have that good sense. So they have that money just sitting with them. They're just spending from it or just keeping it it's not growing. So the person who has wisdom, who understands how to spend their resources, how

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

to use their time, the resources that are lost count Allah has given them the opportunities that are less powerful Tara has given to them how to use them in the best way than such people accumulate a lot of good and this is why such a person is actually worth envy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told that to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said that, that there's two people who are worth envy, and one of them is a man to whom Allah has given wisdom. So he acts in accordance with it, and he teaches it to others, because such a person accumulates much good. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us wisdom, and whatever you spend of expenditures, or make a vows,

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

Indeed, Allah knows of it. And for the wrongdoers, there are no helpers. What does this ayah show us that Allah knows about what we spend on our personal needs, on our desires, on charity, on entertainment, on his religion, for his pleasure, he knows where our money goes, what our spending habits are, what our spending pattern is, and this is something that should make us reflect that my way of spending is is something that Allah subhanaw taala would like, and Allah subhanaw taala knows the intention behind why we spend and also he knows the amount that we give for in the law here alone. What do you mean, I mean, unsolved and for the wrongdoers, there are no helpers. So this

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

verse also shows us that those who spend who given a lost cause then they're the ones who receive Allah's help, because the wrongdoers the stingy or those who do not spend on those in need, who do not give us a cat or who are even stingy with their own families. Such wrongdoers do not have any helpers, but those who spend in good causes, then Allah subhanaw taala is their helper. And this shows us that when we face any hurt

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

In any matter, how is it that we should solve that we should solve that with sadaqa with charity, then the last punctata tells us into little sidecar definire merhi. If you disclose your charitable expenditures, they're good meaning sometimes spending publicly is actually very good. Letting your charity be known to others is good. Why? Because that encourages other people to spend. But if you conceal them and give them to the poor, it is better for you, not just for the dignity of the poor, but also for your intention and he will remove from you some of your misdeeds thereby. So the person who fears their sins their misdeeds, then what should they do, they should begin spending in the way

00:45:47--> 00:46:34

of Allah, because then their sins will be erased, the fire of their sins will be extinguished, and their circumstances will improve. And Allah with what you do is fully acquainted, we learn in a Hadith, that secret charity is something that calms the anger of the Lord. So when we fear the wrong that we have done, we are afraid that Allah may be upset with us, then what is it that we should do? Give sadaqa especially give sadaqa privately, laser alayka, who their home not upon you is responsibility for their guidance, but Allah guides whom He wills, and whatever good you believers spend is for yourselves. Apparently, when you're spending, it seems as though you are giving it to

00:46:34--> 00:47:15

someone else. But in reality, it is going in your own record of deeds, and you do not spend except seeking the face of Allah will mentone Fiona Liberty law or wedgie Hill, this should be our ultimate goal. The reason why we spend that we seek the face of Allah, the thing is that between us and our Lord is a wall of our sins, our own sins become a barrier. So when we give sadaqa, this wall breaks down. And this will enable us to see a lot directly on the day of judgment and to be with him.

00:47:16--> 00:48:00

And whatever you spend of good, it will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged you will get it back. Again, when you give to others, it seems as though you are losing, you're losing your money. But that is not the case. When you give in the way of Allah, your act, your money is actually being secured. Why is it that we take our money to the bank? Why do we keep it there, in order that it may be safe, even though we know that it's not sitting in a box in the bank know the bank is using it, but we trust the bank to use our money. And then when we need it, we have that confidence that we can always get it from there. So the fact is that our money is safer with Allah, it is

00:48:00--> 00:48:50

actually increasing with a law. But it is important that we have laws we have sincerity, when we spend for the sake of Allah. In a Hadees we learned that Allah does not accept any deed except that which is purely for him and seeking his space. And we learned the last panel tada will be pleased with those who give in a Hadees we learned that whoever spends in order to seek the face of a law. Why does he spend to see a law and he ends on that meaning this is how his life ends. Then he will enter Jenna. So when you give, give leeward you Hilah. Now who is it that we should spend on a last panel Carla tells us charity is especially for the poor, who have been restricted for the cause of a

00:48:50--> 00:49:29

law, unable to move about in the land, meaning night and day. They're busy with their religion of a law, learning it defending it being in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and these were the most horrible suffer people who had migrated to Medina in order to be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they did not have their homes or their families in Medina, they did not have any source of income and their entire time would be spent in the service of Islam. Allah says an ignorant person would think them self sufficient because of their restraint, but you will know them by their characteristic sign they do not ask people persistently and whatever you

00:49:29--> 00:49:59

spend up good Indeed Allah is Knowing of it. So give to those who serve the deen of Allah. Especially, you see, when there is a poor person right when there is a poor person, then you when you when you give them something, there is no expectation of a return. When you give a gift to a wealthy person, then you know that it will be reciprocated. You will get something back from them. But here the fukuhara are mentioned the poor

00:50:00--> 00:50:45

I mentioned because when you will give them you know that you will not get any return from them. And this is in fact pure for you. And this is also better for the religion of Allah because this will not cause people to beg so give before someone comes begging to you when you know that that someone has a need fulfill that and Medina Yun feel Kona and Wella whom bill le wanna have those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, when, by night and by day, how do this how is it that they spend secretly and publicly, so to act upon this ayah give some charity in the nighttime, especially in the month of Ramadan, in the middle of European when you take a break, don't just sit there on your

00:50:45--> 00:51:30

phone scrolling through your Instagram feed, also make a donation in the night so that you are of those who follow this ayah they will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve? So we see in this ayah that sadaqa is actually a cure for what for fear and grief. On the day of judgment when people will be in fear. Those who give charity will be safe, when people will be sad. Those who give charity will be secure, they will have no worries. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that little mini yom will be empty sadaqa to who the shade of the believer on the Day of Judgment is his charity.

00:51:31--> 00:52:20

So these verses were about those who give those who spend on others. Now the following verses are about those who are greedy, who are always concerned about taking even from those who are poor, and lead in a akuna Riba, those who consume interest interest Riba such people, they cannot stand on the Day of Resurrection, except as one stands, who is being beaten by shaitan into insanity. Why? Because look at how insane they are, they give a loan to someone, and in return, they take back more than what they gave, they exploit the poor, they take advantage of the need of the poor. That is because they say trade is just like interest, they rationalize it, but Allah has permitted trade and

00:52:20--> 00:52:59

has forbidden interest, so they cannot be the same. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord, and the cysts may have what is past and this affair rests with Allah, but whoever returns to it, those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide there in eternally returning to interest going back to taking interest. This is a huge crime. You see, giving and taking interest, both are wrong, both are sinful. In fact, interest has been has been described as one of the unforgivable sins and multilateral

00:53:00--> 00:53:22

in a heartbeat. We learned that he who eats interest will be resurrected on the day of judgment as an insane person beaten to insanity, by how a person is when they're possessed by a gene. Because their greed for wealth has made them crazy. And just like that, on the day of judgment, they will stand like a crazy person, like an insane person.

00:53:24--> 00:54:06

And remember that every person who is associated with interest is cursed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cursed the acceptor of Riba, the one who takes the Riba and its spare activity Akela liba. We're malkina who the one who feeds rebar to others. Our problem is that based on this ayah we say, oh, eating interest is wrong. Giving interest is not wrong. What did the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam say? He cursed the people. He cursed the people who give Riba How can we be settled with that? How can we be okay with that? The person who records it, the two witnesses, and he said they're all equal.

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

In another Hadees, we learned about severe punishment that was being given to the people who consumed interest and this punishment was shown to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the fact is that the Rebbe is really not worth it. It is really not worth it. It is a sin for which is punishment in this world, and in the next life young helpful. LaHood Lieber Reba, when you saw the cards, Allah destroys interest, and he gives increase to charities. Allah destroys interest, meaning he orders that it'd be abolished, that it'd be erased. Even our boss said that Allah does not accept the charity, the striving, the hedge or the seller, of the one who deals with interest, meaning any

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

good deed that they do. They're not accepted. On the other hand, Allah gives him credit

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

crease for charities, meaning he orders the charity must be given an even our best set about this, that a lot of rewards those who give charity in this world and he blesses their wealth and in the hereafter also he will reward them multiply times and Allah does not like every sinning disbeliever get fat in a theme. So if a person deals with interest, then they will be deprived of Allah's love, because will love will lay your head boo. Allah does not like such people who is Kapha Kapha is an extreme denier, meaning the person who denies the seriousness of interest, the crime of interest, a theme sinful, meaning he consumes interest, and hence he commits sin. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:55:47--> 00:56:30

wa sallam said that no one increases their wealth with interest, except that their outcome will be shortage of wealth, meaning they won't actually increase their wealth. But because of the interest, their wealth will actually reduce. Over time, they will have less and less because the young have to love Riba there can be no blessing in the wealth that is stained with interest. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the one who earns unlawful wealth, and then frees a slave with it or against to the relatives from it, then this will be a source of punishment for him, meaning instead of getting reward, he's actually going to earn more sin for using that how long that

00:56:30--> 00:57:19

unlawful money, so stay away from it. It is not worth it, make the intention to leave it. Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and gives a cat they will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. Will you who have believed fear Allah, Fear Allah and give up what remains due to you of interest, if you should be believers, if you have a man, then leave Riba and if you do not, then be informed of a war against you from Allah and His messenger. If you don't want to leave river, then come and fight Allah Come and fight his messenger stuff, it'll law. But if you repent, you may have your principle.

00:57:19--> 00:58:08

Thus, you do no wrong, nor are you wronged. And if someone meaning someone who has taken a loan from you is in hardship, then let there be postponement until a time of ease, meaning don't charge them interest now, but if you give the loan as charity, meaning you pardon it completely, then this is better for you. If you only knew what the whoa yo mental Gerona, fee Illa law and fear a Day when you will be returned to Allah. Remember, you're not staying in this world forever, then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will not be treated unjustly. So do not put your data at risk for the temporary gains of this life. So little bacala has the greatest verse in it, I

00:58:09--> 00:58:55

could see and it also has the longest verse of the Quran in it which is ayah. Today in all you who have believed, when you contract a debt for a specified term, then write it down and let a scribe write it between you injustice, you see, even when you lend something to a relative recorded, because a lot of conflict stems from money mismanagement. So to save yourself from doubt, and to save other people from doubt, to have clarity, write down such transactions and let his cry right in between you in justice. Let no scribe refuse to write as Allah has taught him. So let him write and let the one who has the obligation dictate meaning the one who is taking the loan should be the one

00:58:55--> 00:59:40

to dictate to the scribe, and let him fear Allah, his Lord, and not leave anything out of it. But if the one who has the obligation is a limited understanding, or weak or unable to dictate himself, then let his guardian dictate injustice, and bring two witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men available than a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses. Why, so that if one of the women ORS, than the other can remind her meaning the other will only assist her when there is a need, and let not the witnesses refuse when they're called upon and do not be too weary to write it, whether it is small or large for its specified term that is

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

more just in the sight of Allah and stronger as evidence and more likely to prevent doubt between you except when it is an immediate transaction, which you conduct among yourselves, meaning a transaction that you conclude immediately, there is no need to write that. But when there is a delayed payment, when there is borrowing when there is lending

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

Make sure you record that. For then there is no blame upon you if you do not write it and take witnesses when you conclude a contract for official business transactions or bigger contracts, make sure that there are witnesses along with documentation. Let no scribe be harmed, or any witnesses for if you do, indeed, it is grave disobedience in you, and fear Allah, and Allah teaches you, and Allah is Knowing of all things. And if you are on a journey, and cannot find a scribe, then a security deposit should be taken as collateral. And if one of you interests another, then let him who is interested, discharged his trust faithfully, and let him fear a lot his Lord and do not

01:00:44--> 01:01:34

conceal testimony, for whoever conceals it, His heart is indeed sinful. And this shows us that even the heart can commit sin, there are Sins of the heart and their sins of the tongue and their sins of the hands. And Allah is Knowing of what you do. And now the final concluding verses of Surah Al Baqarah lilla Hema for some RP woman feel to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is in the earth. Whether you show what is within yourselves or conceal it, Allah will bring you to account for it, then he will forgive whom He wills and punish whom He wills, and Allah is over all things competent. In our bustle. dilla Horner reported that when this verse was revealed, that

01:01:34--> 01:02:25

whether you disclose what is in yourselves or you, or you conceal it, then Allah will call you to account for it. They're entered in the minds of the companions, a fear that had never entered their minds and hearts before meaning, the companions became very afraid that how can we have control over what is in our hearts? If we are held accountable for what is in the heart, then we will be doomed. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them see Sameer now with a bar now was salamina that we have heard and we have obeyed and we have submitted ourselves. So even our best said on this, Allah filled their hearts with Eamon because when a person here is a command of a law, whether it is

01:02:25--> 01:03:11

related to charity, or interest or anything else, and he says in his heart, Sameera, now what authority now was alumna that Oh Allah, now I have come to know of this, and I have made the intention, I will obey you, I submit to you, I will not resist, I will do this than Allah will fill the heart of such a person with a man. And so what happened? Then Allah subhanaw taala revealed the next two verses, which are the last two verses of Surah Baqarah. And remember, these two verses, like Soto Fatiha are from a treasure trove beneath the throne of Allah. And a person does not recite any any word of these verses, except that they're benefited because of them. And this is why the

01:03:11--> 01:03:56

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam urged us to recite them. He said it crop recite a attainment or he resorted bacala recite the last two verses of Sudoku bacala. These two verses are so powerful that if a person recites them in the night, then Kapha tahu, they will suffice him meaning there will be enough for his protection, forgiveness. And some have said that they will also be enough for his reward for night prayer and they will dispel his fears. They will dispel his stress, his worries, his anxieties. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said that these two verses are not recited in house for three nights, except that shavon will not be able to come close to it.

01:03:56--> 01:04:44

So fortify yourself, fortify your home and the people within your home by reciting these verses every night. Make it a point to memorize them and recite them regularly. What are these verses? Another Sulu, Bhima una de la la humans will be well known. The messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord. And so have the believers sopran Allah, Allah accept their Eman the man of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the man of the companions, this man is approved. What is it that they believed in? All of them, all of them have believed in Allah and His angels, as we learned at the beginning of cervical bacala and larina umina believe they believe in the unseen

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

and they also believe in his books and his messengers, as we learned to the beginning of Soto Dakota, will livina umina Bhima on Zilla Lake, warmer on Zillow in public, they believe in all of Revelation. They say we make no deal

01:05:00--> 01:05:52

distinction between any of his messengers. So we see that this ayah covers all of the pillars of Amen, the belief in Allah, the belief in his angels in his books in his messengers. But you might say, what about belief in Divine Decree that is not mentioned over here. Why? Because that is actually a result of believing in all of this. And it is covered in the words we'll call to Sameer and our Alterna, and they say, we hear and we obey, you see, believing in Divine Decree is to accept the decrees of Allah, the decisions of Allah, both his religious commands, and his decrees related to our lives, that whatever is happening, whatever is coming my way, my circumstances. All of this

01:05:52--> 01:06:39

is by Allah's decree. So I accept it, and I will do whatever my Lord has commanded me to do. But then you realize how imperfect you are. So the whole front cover of banana, we seek your forgiveness, our Lord, what he likened, mislead, and to you as the final destination. There's no escape from you, except to you. So we see over here, that before asking for forgiveness is a summer and thora, to listen and to obey, then ask forgiveness. So this shows us that whenever we want to seek forgiveness, than before that we should try to do something good. We should try to perform some act of obedience. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever performs will do as I

01:06:39--> 01:07:26

have, and remember making will do is an act of worship. It's an act of obedience, and then he prays to the car without letting his thoughts wander, then all of his previous sins will be forgiven. So when you want to seek forgiveness proceeded with some act of obedience. Sometimes the guilt of sins was heavy in the heart. You think about all the things you have done wrong in your past, because of your ignorance and your foolishness and you wonder, how do I fix that? This is how you fix that. You do something good, you pray to dakara you beg Allah for forgiveness, keep doing good. Keep seeking forgiveness. Allah says, law you can leave alone, Epson Illa was Aha. Allah does not charge a soul,

01:07:26--> 01:08:18

except with that within its capacity, lahemaa cassava, while a hammock Tessa, but it will have the consequence of what good It has gained, and it will bear the consequence of what evil it has earned. Meaning a person is responsible for the choices that they make, because you reap what you sow. This ayah shows us that every command of Allah, whether it is of the Calif konia meaning related to our worldly matters, or the callee of sialorrhea religious obligations, every decree of Allah is such that it is doable for us. Because the fact is that there is no one who knows us better than Allah subhanaw taala so if he decides something for our lives, or if he commands us to do something, that

01:08:18--> 01:09:10

it can then it cannot be beyond our ability. It cannot be beyond our strength. But still, we ask Allah subhana wa tada for ease. We ask Allah subhanaw taala for help because of our holder, when our pool water illa Billah there is no power, no strength except with Allah. So we asked him, we pray to Him or a banner lead to a hidden in the center our thought now, our Lord do not impose blame upon us, if we have forgotten or aired. If we have made a mistake, we will obey you. But we also know that there will be times when we will forget. And we will make mistakes on account of our ignorance, because we are our own. We are those who error or Bana what I mean or Elena is stolen, gamma

01:09:10--> 01:09:59

Hamilton who are either Latina men, commelina our Lord and lay not upon us a burden, what kind of burden obligations or restrictions like that which you laid upon those before us? Meaning do not give us a burden that is difficult, like the one that was imposed on the people before us, meaning make our religion and your decrees easy for us would have been a while to have a llama lotto catalana be our Lord and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear meaning the trials of life or commands and religion or the impositions, any make them easy for us, work for us. And pardon us erase and wipe our shortcomings

01:10:00--> 01:10:57

erase our neglect will fill in and forgive us conceal our errors while Hamner and have mercy upon us. Do not humiliate us on the Day of Judgment until molana You are our protector, you are all able to protect and help us and we only have you to turn to untie mowlana phone. So now a little cold milk caffeine. So you give us victory over the disbelieving people meeting. Yeah, Allah help us against our internal hurdles, and the external hurdles. So these verses show us that our ability is limited, that we are truly weak. And this is why we ask Allah to give us what we can bear. Remember, these are ours are actually accepted. They're ours, because every time that the Sahaba recited one

01:10:57--> 01:11:40

of these, we learned Hadees that Allah subhanaw taala responded, or the file to cut the file to meaning Done, done. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala has made this religion easy as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, this really this religion is a heavy failure, as somehow the easy and gentle one. And we see this, that Islam is not such that it pushes us to the point of breaking in the name of grit, or in the name of resilience or in the name of piety. Know the nature of Islamic law is such that when things become unbearably hard for people, the law provides them concessions, it lightens the burden from them. We see that if a person just intends to do something

01:11:40--> 01:12:28

wrong, no sin is written for them, until they actually commit the sin. If a person forgets or is coerced to do something wrong, again, they're not guilty of sin. If a person does something wrong out of ignorance, and then they repent later, Allah subhanaw taala pardons them. And if a person is going through, through difficulty, Allah also gives them usage. He also gives them ease. So these verses bring us hope. They bring this courage, we express our need of Allah in these verses, we express our dependency on the last panel tada in these verses, and remember, these verses were gifted to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the mayor of orange. So make the recitation a

01:12:28--> 01:12:40

part of your routine, your nightly routine, so that you also get hope and courage and you also connect with your Lord. And you also get the ease that Allah subhanaw taala has promised.

01:12:41--> 01:12:58

So not earlier Emraan sort of Allium Ron, just like sutan baka has a lot of virtue. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, learn the Quran, for it will come as an intercessor, on the day of judgment, learn sooner

01:12:59--> 01:13:48

and earlier in Milan, and he said, learn these two lights, for they will come on the Day of Judgment, as if there were two clouds, or two shades, or two flocks of birds in rows, pleading for those who recite them. So we see that the knowledge the recitation of the sutras is something that will be a means of protection for a person on the Day of Judgment Bismillahirrahmanirrahim In the name of Allah, be Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful Elif learn meme, Allahu La Ilaha Illa who will hi Yokai you Allah, there is no deity except Him, the EverLiving, the Sustainer of existence, he has sent down upon you or prophet, the book in truth, confirming what was before it.

01:13:48--> 01:14:34

And he revealed the Torah and the Injeel. Before as guidance for the people. So remember, the purpose of the book of Allah is to guide people. And he revealed the fourth con, the criterion. Indeed, those who disbelieve in the verses of Allah will have a severe punishment. And Allah is Exalted in Might, the owner of retribution. Remember, Allah did not reveal his books so that they're rejected by people, or that they're ignored by people, that people put them away and pretend as if they don't exist. If a person rejects the book of Allah, then there will be retribution from Allah also. Indeed, from Allah, nothing is hidden in the earth nor in the heavens. It is he who forms you

01:14:34--> 01:14:59

in the wombs, however he wills so however you are however someone is, that is what Allah subhanaw taala wanted.

There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might the wise, it is he who has sent down to you or profitable

01:15:00--> 01:15:42

in it are verses that are more commands that are precise meaning they're clear in their meaning and they contain clear commands. And these verses they are the foundation of the book, meaning the majority of the Quran is like that. And such verses serve as the foundation for understanding the rest of the Quran. And then there are other verses which are Mota shall be had others that are unspecific, meaning verses whose meaning we cannot specify, because Allah and His Messenger have not done so, for example, on the fly mean, what does it mean we do not know. So we should not obsess over these verses, or these things that are mentioned in the Quran. No argue and debate over them.

01:15:43--> 01:16:27

But as for those people in whose hearts is deviation from truth, they will follow that of which is unspecific, meaning they obsess over them as if the entire religion is based upon them as if the only thing that the Quran contains are these unspecific verses. Why do they do that? seeking discord and seeking an interpretation meaning that is suitable to them, and no one knows its true interpretation except Allah. But those Fermin knowledge say, we believe in it, all of it is from our Lord, and no one will be reminded except those of understanding who are they what is their prayer, or have been allowed to zylka lubaina BARDA in had atana who say Our Lord, let not our hearts

So gift us with guidance and steadfastness upon guidance, that we neither leave this path, nor Forget about it. Remember, that the perseverance of the heart, which is mentioned over here in this ayah This is something very, very important, because if the heart is in the right place, if the heart is guided, then there is emotion, and then a person's actions are also guided. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:17:13--> 01:17:44

said, a person's faith cannot be correct, until his heart is correct, and his heart cannot be correct until his tongue is correct. The heart is the most important part of your being. It is the heart where the code is a decoy hoonah it is in the heart where decisions are made. This is why ask Allah to guide the heart. A love Maddie can be was a deadly sin he was also he may be that Oh Allah.

And remember that seeking forgiveness is something that

01:18:39--> 01:18:52

cleans the heart. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there is at times some sort of shade, like a cover, you know, some kind of shade upon my heart, and I seek forgiveness from Allah 100 times a day.

01:18:53--> 01:19:42

So seek forgiveness and clean the heart. pray to Allah to protect you from the evil of your own hearts. Woman surely I'll be alone many are the becoming surely summery woman surely but sorry, woman surely the Sani woman surely can be Allah protect me from the evil of my heart.

01:20:22--> 01:21:08

our Lord, surely you will gather the people for a day about which there is no doubt, Indeed, Allah does not fail in his promise. Indeed, those who disbelieve never will their wealth, or their children available against Allah at all. And it is they who are fuel for the fire, there's is like the custom of the people of fit our own, and those before them. An example is given from history. They denied our signs. So Allah sees them for their sins, and Allah is severe in penalty. So we should fear Allah, lest we are caught because of our sins. Say to those who disbelieve you will be overcome. The disbelievers who came to bother to fight the Prophet sallallahu or to send them are

01:21:08--> 01:21:51

being warned over here that just as you were defeated and bothered, in no time you will be complete, you will be completely defeated and gathered together to hell, and wretched is the resting place. Already there has been for us sign in the two armies which meant one fighting in the cause of Allah and another of disbelievers at brothers. They saw them to be twice their own number by their eyesight. So at button what happened is that each side viewed the other as twice their own number. So the Muslims actually saw the Munchkins as only 600 or so. And this uplifted them, and the mccanns saw the Muslims as 2000 and this frightened them, but Allah supports with his victory whom He wills

01:21:52--> 01:22:40

indeed, and that is a lesson for those of vision. The unit in se her Boucher, Howard beautified for people is the love of that which they desire, meaning these desirable things are made beloved to people, what are these desirable things of women and sons heaped up sums of gold and silver, fine branded horses and cattle and tilled land, that is the enjoyment of worldly life, a source of some enjoyment, just right now, but Allah has with him the best return. So this love, which is in the hearts of people is there, but it is actually a test. Allah subhanaw taala did not create our hearts void of any feeling void of any love, no, this love and attraction, this attraction for pleasure, it

01:22:40--> 01:22:56

will be there. But it is a test that are you going to get lost in it? Or are you going to prefer Allah? Are you going to just enjoy these things? Or are you going to use them in pursuing the pleasure of Allah? Say, shall I inform you of something better than that?

01:22:57--> 01:23:46

I will not be Oh, come behind him in Veliko. These things are great. and enjoying them, liking them is not something bad. But what is problematic is that a person thinks that they're everything. And so he makes them his ultimate goal. And he gets immersed in enjoying them and does not look forward to what is better. And what is that what Allah has saved for the hereafter? Remember, to get to the higher levels of genda some desires need to be curbed. Some desires need to be disciplined. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, what I fear for my nation has three things and all of them is desire that is followed. And he also said, the sweetness of this world can be bitterness in the

01:23:46--> 01:24:33

Hereafter, and the bitterness of this world can actually be sweetness in the hereafter. So remember, this world is not everything, there is something much better. And what is that for those who fear Allah will be gardens, gardens that are eternal in the presence of their Lord, beneath which rivers flow wherein they will abide eternally, and purified spouses and approval from Allah. So no one will be single in general. And Allah is seeing of his servants. Who are they, those who say, Our Lord, indeed we have believed, so forgive us our sins and protect us from the punishment of the Fire. Who are these fortunate people are celebrating those who are patient, those who are true, the obedient

01:24:33--> 01:25:00

those who spend in the way of Allah and those who seek forgiveness before dawn, amazing. They get up before budget and seek forgiveness from Allah. So we should compare ourselves to the characteristics that are mentioned over here that do I possess them? What's the first one a CBT those who are patient me okay him said there are three forms of patience. One over commands, so a person fulfills them second over person

01:25:00--> 01:25:49

ambitions so a person avoids them. Third over a decrease. So a person does not get upset because of them, then what are the pain those who are truthful. But as I said, there are those who are true in their intentions, in their actions in their hearts also, and their tongues, their upright, who are good, in private, and in public. This is truthfulness. This is honesty that a person is not two faced, while carnitine those who are devoutly obedient, that whatever Allah commands them with, they do it how with humility, and consistency, while 115 and those who spend meaning they spend in the ways that Allah Subhana, Allah has commanded them on relatives on those in need in the way of Allah.

01:25:50--> 01:26:34

While most don't fit in a bill as hell, and they seek forgiveness at the time of dawn, because they realize their sins. And this shows us the importance of seeking forgiveness before dawn, this time is very important. This is the time when Allah descends to the lowest heaven, and he asks, who was there who will call upon me? So I will answer him who was there who will ask me so I will give him who was there who will seek forgiveness from me, so I will forgive him. And this continues until February. So seek forgiveness at that time. Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him. And so do the angels. And those have knowledge that he is maintaining creation in justice, there is no

01:26:34--> 01:27:20

data except Him, the Exalted in Might the wise, indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them. Why, out of jealous animosity between themselves and whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah, then Indeed, Allah is swift in taking account. So if they argue with you, say, I have submitted myself to Allah in Islam, and so have those who follow me. And you say, to those who were given the Scripture, and to the Unlimited, have you submitted yourselves, and if they submit in Islam, then they are rightly guided, but if they turn away, then upon you is only the duty of notification. And Allah is

01:27:20--> 01:28:05

seeing of his servants, those who disbelieve in the signs of Allah, and kill the prophets without right and kill those who order justice from among the people give them tidings of a painful punishment. They are the ones whose deeds have become worthless in this world and in the hereafter. And for them, there will be no helpers, do not consider those who are given a portion of the Scripture, they're invited to the scripture of Allah, that it should arbitrate between them, then a party of them turns away, and they're refusing meaning they don't want to see what the book of Allah says. They don't want to know. They're, they're wrong, that this behavior is a result of what reason

01:28:05--> 01:28:53

this is because they say, never will defier touch us except for a few number days, and because they were diluted in their religion, by what they were inventing. So how will it be when we assemble them for a day about which there is no doubt and each soul will be compensated in full for what it earned, and they will not be wronged? Polina, Huma Malik Al mulk, say, oh, Allah, owner of sovereignty. Tim, welcome, and Tasha, you give sovereignty to whom you will say if someone has any power, any sovereignty, any level of ownership, it is ullas favor upon them. Within zero will come in man, Tasha, and you take sovereignty away from whom you will, what to the lumen Tasha, and you?

01:28:54--> 01:29:30

What is the lumen Tushar what is zoom and Tasha, what is the lumen Tasha, you honor whom you will and you humble whom you will, in your hand is all good, be ethical, higher, indeed you are over all things competent. So remember, good is from Allah. Hide is from Allah. So any ability or opportunity to do good that a person has, has actually been given to them by Allah soprano parlor. So we should ask Allah to use us in good work to give us more and more opportunities of good work.

01:29:31--> 01:29:50

You cause the night to enter the day, and you cause the day to enter the night, such a massive change. So consistently, Alyssa pathauto causes to happen, and you bring the living out of the dead and you bring the dead out of the living and you give provision to whom you will without account.

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

Let not believers take disbelievers as allies, rather than the believers. And whoever of you does that has nothing with Allah

01:30:00--> 01:30:53

Except when taking precaution against them in prudence, and Allah warns you of himself and to Allah is the final destination, saying, whether you conceal what is in your chests or you reveal it, Allah knows about it. And he knows that which is in the heavens, and that which is on the earth. And Allah is over all things competent, the day, the day of judgment that is not far, when every soul will find what it has done of good present before it, and what it has done of evil, it will wish that between itself and that evil was a great distance. Imagine when the records will be laid open, and our deeds will be on display. A person will be so embarrassed, he will wish to be far away from his

01:30:53--> 01:31:47

sins from his deeds, he will wish for his sins to be removed from him. But the time to remove them is now when you have Vito qumola, who nafsa and Allah warns you of himself and Allah is often very bad, he is kind to his servants Subhanallah fear Allah and also have hope in his kindness. Because remember, a man is supposed to be between fear and hope. Any extreme is unhealthy, so remain in the middle. So this is a warning and who fears Allah? Who is it that develops the fear of a law in the May of shala Hamid everybody here will oma Allah tells us that it is those who have knowledge among his servants who actually fear him. So the more a person knows Allah, the more they fear Allah men

01:31:47--> 01:31:49

cannibal Allah He RM Canada who

01:31:50--> 01:32:37

and who is true in their claim of loving Allah. Allah tells us going in, continue to hibben Allah say, if you should love Allah, for Toby Ronnie, then follow me what will happen your bitcomet Allah, that Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, what you fear will be removed from you. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Amazing, following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is actually a proof of a person's love for Allah. Everyone claims to love Allah. But the real proof of that is in following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and if a person does not do that, then their claim of loving Allah is actually false. Why follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

01:32:37--> 01:33:25

because he did whatever Allah commanded him. He did what Allah subhanaw taala loves. There is nothing that is beloved to Allah. There is nothing that Allah loves his servants to do, except that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did that he encouraged that he taught that. So when we will follow the Prophet sallallahu wasallam we will automatically be doing things that Allah subhanaw taala loves. And remember, you show love to someone by doing what they like, not what you like. Loving Allah means doing things that Allah loves, not what your heart desires. And this love that we have for Allah is not just about singing songs in praise or kissing the Quran, or kissing the

01:33:25--> 01:34:06

pendant that has God's name on it. No, this love is to be expressed through action through obedience. We see that once some people came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Bahrain. And when the Prophet sallallahu Arizonan made will do, they ran to catch the water that fell from him. So whatever they managed to catch, they drank it and whatever they couldn't catch and it fell in the ground. They left their hands with it, and wipe their hands over their faces and their heads and their chests. So the prophets of Allah already sent him ask them, What made you do this? They said, Love for you, that perhaps Allah will love us or messenger of Allah, meaning we did

01:34:06--> 01:34:15

this out of love for you, because we hope that when we will love you, Allah will love us. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If you truly love Allah,

01:34:16--> 01:34:59

if you truly love that Allah and His Messenger should love you. Then guard three qualities do three things. He told them about three things that they could do action points, and what are they slipped will Hadith be truthful in speech? Secondly, adapt will Amana fulfill your trust? And thirdly, hosting dua be a good neighbor because hurting the neighbor erases good deeds as the sun erases snow will alter your law How long was Sol say obey Allah and the messenger? But if they turn away for in Allahu Allah, you have a bull calf feeding, then Indeed Allah does not like the disbelievers. Why would he like those who turn away from his

01:35:00--> 01:35:36

Beloved. So remember, the love of Allah necessitates obeying Allah, it means we must obey Allah and we must obey the messenger of Allah. So those who do not obey, obey the messenger, than Allah does not like them. So we need to check, how is it that we respond to the commands of Allah, and to the commands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Indeed, Allah chose Adam and knew, and the family of Ibrahim and the family of Emraan over the worlds, we now learn about some people whom Allah subhanaw taala loves

01:35:37--> 01:36:02

them the lineitem Babu Hummingbird they were descendants, some of them from others. And Allah is hearing and knowing who would Allah Iran? Why were they chosen? What caused them to be chosen? Allah says in quality ma utter Emraan mentioned when the wife of Iran said that my Lord, indeed I have pledged to you what is in my womb, she was also chosen.

01:36:03--> 01:36:48

She said, I pledge to you what is in my womb, meaning my child consecrated for your service more Hello, one further couple minutes Mini. So accept this for me. Indeed, you are the hearing the knowing you sing. There are many types of people. There are some people who will have soprano tada has chosen for both the dean and the dunya. So he gives them of this world. And he also blesses them with his religion. They have both. They excel in both. And then there are some people who only have been like the most horrible suffer, right? They saw, they were farmers, they had money. They have property, the Mahajan also they were traders, and the US herbal sofa, they were dedicated to the

01:36:48--> 01:37:37

deed completely. And this has always been the case. There are some people who have to make that sacrifice. They have to give up their worldly pursuits, to pursue the religion of Allah. And this is what this woman wanted for her child. She wanted her child to be dedicated for worship exclusively, nothing else. So she said, This child of mine will be more helpful, meaning freed from any obligation to me, free from any worldly occupation, completely dedicated to the worship of Allah to the service of his religion. So what happened? fundamental data, but when she delivered her, she said, My Lord, I have delivered a female, she thought her child would be a boy, because it was boys

01:37:37--> 01:38:29

at that time who did such work? So look at her, she's talking to Allah. She says that, she said, What be my love in the world are to her. She's talking to Allah. Remember that the best solution to our problems is in talking to Allah, befriend Allah, and your life will become easy. Talk to Allah. You see, we want to talk to people, but people are not always available. Sometimes they even charge us, right? You go for therapy, and you have to pay a whole lot of money. And of course, if you need therapy, you must go. This is not anything against that. But my point is that people are not always available or accessible. Right? But when you talk to Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is always they're

01:38:29--> 01:39:16

always accessible. You send a message to a person, they haven't even read your message yet, or better yet, they leave you on read, and it is so hurtful. So talk to Allah, and actually verbalize your feelings before Allah. Don't just keep them in your heart, like this lady did. She said, What are Believe me What are to her own sir, Allah says, will law who RLM will be Mahabharat and Allah was most knowing of what she delivered. Sometimes we don't make Dora we don't talk to Allah because we think a lot already knows. Yes, he knows. But when you talk to Allah, that is when you will feel closer to him. That is when you will, unburden yourself, you will feel relieved. Remember, our

01:39:16--> 01:39:28

relationship is not just about knowing what someone is going through it is with communication. So communicate with your Lord, talk to Allah, pour your heart out before him cry.

01:39:30--> 01:40:00

And the male is not like the female. While he said the chemical owns, meaning they're not identical. Yes, there are similarities, but there are also fundamental differences. And each has their own unique set of traits, strengths, ways in which Allah subhanaw taala has chosen them. So at times, one can do what the other cannot. A woman can do what a man cannot. So you don't have to be someone else to do something. You have to be

01:40:00--> 01:40:45

Who you are to do something for the sake of Allah soprano Carla. She says, and I have named her Millennium and I seek refuge for her in you and for her descendants from chez pon the expelled from the mercy of Allah. So the first thing she did is that she gave her child in the protection of a law. What does the law say? For the Kabbalah Hara boo hobbico Boolean Hasson so her Lord accepted her with good acceptance. Allah accepts the deeds which are done with sincerity and he caused her to grow in a good manner. Remember, Allah soprano Todd is the one who causes children to grow, he develops them, he nourishes them, he sustains them, he provides them parents only put in some

01:40:45--> 01:41:28

effort. Allah soprano tada is the one who truly Bertha Ha. So give your children in Alice care make Doris that will love as you took care of yourself in Egypt, as you took care of Moosa in the house of our own, you protect my child, you guide my child. And Allah put her in the care of Zakat a year, who was a prophet of his time, and also the relative of money, who could be a better Guardian, who could be a better teacher, a better mentor. So she stayed in the mosque in her mikulov in her prayer chamber, devoted in worship and study. And because her father was not alive, prophets of Korea would care for her. Allah says, Every time that could he entered upon her in the prayer every time so

01:41:28--> 01:42:19

could he have entered upon her in the prayer chamber, he found with her provision, he said, Oh, Maria, from where is this coming to you? Where did you get this from? She said, it is from Allah. Indeed, Allah provides for whom He wills, without any account, who analiza draza yoruba at that zekeriya called upon his Lord, my Lord will be heavily militant. The return to Yuba, Oh my Lord, grant me from yourself, I want from you, because I know you have I know you can give and I know you are generous, so I want from you. I want a good offspring. Indeed, you are the hearer of supplication. You see, the criada is ceram saw how a young woman was being blessed by Allah subhana

01:42:19--> 01:43:07

wa tada and seeing her blessings made him call upon Allah. Look at how his whole Pinilla increased. So when you see someone with a blessing, and you like it, then ask Allah that Allah, you gave it to them, I wanted to. So what happened? The angels called upon the angels called him while he was standing in prayer in the chamber. Indeed, Allah gives you good tidings of yahia sopran. Allah, his door always accepted. Allah gives you good tidings of yahia, confirming a word from Allah, and who will be honorable abstaining from women and a prophet from among the righteous is a clearly he said, I've said, My Lord, how will I have a boy, when I have reached old age, and my wife has barren,

01:43:07--> 01:43:51

amazing he made the DA and now he himself is surprised. The angel said, such is Allah, he does what He wills, the Quran he said, I'm said, My Lord, make for me his sign. So I know for sure, he said your assigned is that you will not be able to speak to the people for three days except by gesture. And remember your Lord much and exalted with praise in the evening and in the morning. And this is how we should receive, we should welcome the blessings of Allah when we hear the good news of Allah subhanaw taala his blessings. For example, a good proposal for marriage or news of pregnancy or acceptance into a program that you really wanted a job interview. Whatever it is, you hear the good

01:43:51--> 01:44:41

news, you read the email, you get the notification, then immediately thank Allah, immediately praise Allah, engage and engage in this be sure give sadaqa turn to Allah with quality melodica and mentioned when the angel said or Miriam, Indeed, Allah has chosen you and purified you have chosen you, above the women of the worlds or millennium. Be devoutly obedient to your Lord because Allah has chosen you, you also become obedient to Allah and prostrate and bow with those who bow in prayer. So this shows us that when Allah has blessed you with something, then you must Humble yourself even more before Allah. Valley come in Amber ellaby, New Haven, a lake, that is from the

01:44:41--> 01:44:59

news of the unseen which we reveal to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you were not with them when they cast their pens as to which of them should be responsible for medium nor were you with them when they disputed and mentioned when the angel said oh money I'm Indeed Allah gives you good news of a word.

01:45:00--> 01:45:41

from him, whose name will be the mercy, or Isa the son of money I'm distinguished in this world and the hereafter and among those brought near to Allah Subhana Allah now that mme is an adult, look at how Allah subhanaw taala employs her for his Deen uses her for his Deen.

And also we see here that those who give are not deprived, whether it is your time that you give for the sake of Allah, your effort, your money, your career, whatever it is that you give to Allah for the sake of Allah, He will multiply for you. Just try it. When the angel said, or mme. Indeed, Allah gives you good tidings of a word from him, meaning a child who will be born because of Allah has word con, not from a father, whose name will be the mercy Risa the son of money on distinguished in this world and the Hereafter, and among those brought near to Allah, He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of their righteous, she said, My Lord, how will I have a

01:46:27--> 01:47:11

child when no man has touched me? It was said it will happen such as Allah, He creates what He wills when he decrees a matter he only says to it be and it is, and this is why he started Salaam is also described as Kadima to Minho a word from him, meaning he was created out of the word of Allah subhana wa Tada. And He will teach him writing and wisdom and the Toba and the gospel, or he will teach him the book and the Wisdom and the total and the gospel and make him a messenger to the children of Israel, he who will say, indeed, I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, a miracle, what a miracle in that I designed for you from clay, that which is like the form of a bird,

01:47:11--> 01:47:57

then I breathe into it. And it becomes a bird by permission of a law, and that cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead by permission of Allah. And I inform you of what you eat, and what you store in your houses. Indeed, and that is a sign for you, if you are believers, and I have come confirming that what was before me of the total and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord. So fear Allah and obey me in the law huddle be with a book on fire boo. Indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him, Not Me, obey me, but worship only Allah had us laid off on Mr. Clean, that is the straight path. And

01:47:57--> 01:48:44

this shows us that we can only be on the straight path. When we worship only Allah, when our sacrifice, when the good that we do, the salon that we pray, the charity that we give, all our life is dedicated for Allah subhanaw taala alone, that is a bother and that is Serato Mr. Cream. But when he started his salon felt persistence and disbelief from them. He said, Who are my supporters for the cause of Allah, the herati Yun the disciples, they said we are supporters for Allah, we will support you, even though the people deny you know, onsala we have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims. So we see that they showed their utmost support. And this is why they were called

01:48:44--> 01:49:29

her were to Yun. They said Our Lord, we have believed in what you revealed, and have followed the messenger. So register us among the witnesses to truth and the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned in return. And Allah is the best of planners, meaning the people were not able to harm or he started his Salam. Allah subhanaw taala saved him mentioned when Allah said or Isa, indeed, I will take you and raise you to myself, and purify you from those who disbelieve and make you and make those who follow you superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection, then to me is your return. And I will judge between you concerning that in which you're used to differ. And as for

01:49:29--> 01:49:59

those who disbelieved. I will punish them with the severe punishment in this world and the hereafter and they will have no helpers. But as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, he will give them in full their rewards for you or fee him or jeweler home and the law does not like the wrongdoers so this shows us that real reward, complete reward is actually in the hereafter. That is what we recite to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam of our verses and the precise and wise message

01:50:00--> 01:50:45

This is coming from Allah. Indeed, the example of ERISA to Allah is like that of Adam. He created him from dust. Then he said to him Be and he was, the truth is from your Lord. So do not be among those who doubt, then whoever argues with you about it, after this knowledge has come to you, then say, Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves, then supplicate earnestly together and invoke the curse of Allah, upon the liars meeting, when people do not accept the evidence, then this is supposed to be done in the Heather who will cost us will help. Indeed this is the true narration and there is no deity except Allah. And indeed, Allah

01:50:45--> 01:51:30

is the Exalted in Might the wise, but if they turn away, then Indeed Allah is Knowing of the corrupters say, Paul, lol kita, Toronto Illa Kalimantan Sawa in vain in Albania calm or People of the Scripture come to a word that is equitable between us and you. And what is that, that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with him, and then our Buddha in the law will unleash licchavi Shay, when is the bourbon bourbon or bourbon Dune in LA? And we will not take one another as Lords instead of Allah for intoa lo, foolish Adobe anomalously moon, but if they turn away, then say, bear witness that we are Muslims, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

01:51:30--> 01:52:09

sallam sent this ayah to the Roman king who was a Christian. So he used this ayah when calling people to Islam, we also learn in a hadith in Sahih Muslim that women are best for the love more and who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite this ayah in the second lucara of the Sunnah, prayers of budget. So we should also memorize this ayah and recited in the sinner prayers of budget in the second record, all people have the Scripture, why do you argue about Ibrahim? While the total and the and Gene were not revealed until after him? Then will you not reason? Here you are those who have argued about that of which you have some knowledge. But why do

01:52:09--> 01:52:55

you argue about that of what you have no knowledge, and Allah knows? Well, you know, not Ibrahim was neither a Jew nor a Christian, because you see both the Jews and the Christians, they they claimed him that that we are His followers, and you were not, who was he then he but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim, and he was not of the polytheists. Indeed, the most worthy of Ibrahim among the people are those who followed him, meaning those who submit to Allah and this prophet, and those who believe in his message. And Allah is the ally of the believers will love when he you will move many are believers, a faction of the People of the Scripture, wish they could mislead you, but they

01:52:55--> 01:53:36

do not mislead except themselves and they perceive it not remember, anyone who tries to harm another is in fact harming themselves or People of the Scripture. Why do you disbelieve in the verses of Allah while you witness to their truth? Or People of the Scripture? Why do you compete? Why do you confuse the truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while you know it? And a faction of the People of the Scripture say meaning to each other. This was a, this was a scheme, a conspiracy, you know, a trick that they came up with that believe in that which was revealed to the believers at the beginning of the day and projected at its end, that perhaps they will abandon their religion,

01:53:36--> 01:54:25

meaning, turn people away from Islam through these tactics, and do not trust except those who follow your religion, say, tell such people? Indeed, the true guidance is the guidance of a law. Do you fear lest someone be given knowledge like you were given? Or that they would thereby argue with you before your Lord? Why are you trying so hard to cover the truth? Say, indeed, all bounty isn't the hand of Allah He grants to to whom He wills and Allah is all encompassing and wise. Yasuhiro hemmati he Manisha he selects for his mercy whom He wills and Allah is the possessor of great bounty will love without a lien. So we should also ask Allah for his great favor, Allahumma inni lucam in fugly

01:54:25--> 01:54:26

color Aleem,

01:54:27--> 01:54:59

and among the People of the Scripture is He Who if you entrust him with a great amount of wealth, he will return it to you. And among them is He Who if you entrust him with a single silver coin, he will not return it to you, unless you are constantly standing over him demanding it, meaning there are different so don't generalize, do not stereotype. And this is something that we should remember that just because a person is from a certain group, and you've had a bad experience from someone who is from that group, then don't cancel out.

01:55:00--> 01:55:43

Have them don't stereotype. That is because they say those who do wrong among them. Why do they do it? It is because they say, there is no blame upon us concerning the Unlimited, meaning the Gentiles, the Arabs, we can treat them however we want. And they speak on truth about Allah while they know meaning Allah has not said anything of this sort, but a man Oh, five, VIP, but yes, whoever, whoever fulfills his commitment, what the call and fears Allah, for in the law, you have been with the team, then Indeed, Allah loves those who fear Him. Indeed, those who exchange the covenant of Allah and their own oaths for a small price will have no share in the hereafter. And

01:55:43--> 01:56:25

Allah will not speak to them, or look at them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will he purify them, and they will have a painful punishment. And indeed, there is among them a party who alter the Scripture with their tongues, they distort the speech of Allah. So you may think it is from the Scripture, but in fact, it is not from the Scripture, and they said this is from Allah, but it is not from Allah. And they speak on truth about Allah. Well, they know this is also a huge crime, that one attributes to Allah, what Allah has not said, or what tampers The Book of Allah, changing his verses to suit their own desires. It is not allowable, it is not possible for a human, that alone

01:56:25--> 01:57:07

should give him the Scripture and authority and Prophethood and then he would say to the people be servants to me, rather than Allah, meaning he would never turn people away from Allah. But instead he would say, Be Rabbani yean, be pious scholars learned men of the Lord, be devoted to your love, because of what You have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied. So remember, the main objective of learning of studying of teaching the book is to become little Bernie, to become devoted servants of Allah, Buddha that said, you cannot be knowledgeable until you become a learner, and you cannot be truly knowledgeable until you become a Brahmin, meaning those who act on

01:57:07--> 01:57:47

what they know. And it is sufficient sin for you that you always argue and debate. So stop using knowledge for argumentation, start learning and start applying. This is a truly knowledgeable person, nor could he ever order you to take the angels and prophets as lords, would he order you to disbelieve after you had been Muslims. And recall, when Allah took a covenant of the Prophet saying, whatever I give you up the Scripture and wisdom, and then there comes to you a messenger, confirming what is with you, you must believe in him and support him. Allah said, Have you acknowledged and taken upon that my commitment, all of the prophets said we haven't acknowledged it. He said, then

01:57:47--> 01:58:31

bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses. And whoever turned away after that, they were the defiantly disobedient, so is it other than the religion of Allah the desire, while to him have submitted all those within the heavens on Earth, willingly or by compulsion, and to him they will be returned? Islam is submission, the entire universe submits to Allah. So this is the natural religion, because we all exist because of him. And our return is also to him. So for now, in the middle also, we should submit to Him say, oh, Prophet, we have believed in Allah, and then what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Ibrahim is mareel, is how PR qub and the descendants and in

01:58:31--> 01:59:15

what was given to Moosa, under Isa, under the profits from their Lord, we make no distinction between any of them, meaning we believe in all of them without discrimination, and we recognize the distinction given to each one of them. And we are Muslims submitting to Allah, and whoever desires other than Islam as religion, never will it be accepted from him, and he in the hereafter will be among the losers. Remember, the only religion acceptable to Allah is Islam. What are we to locomole Islam Medina, this is why we should be content with Islam, and we should say, literally to be the hero. What bill Islam Idina, wabi Mohammedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to be here, how shall

01:59:15--> 01:59:59

Allah guide people who disbelieved after their belief, and had witnessed that the messenger is true, and the clear signs had come to them, and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing, people, those their recompense will be that upon them as the curse of Allah and the angels and the people all together, abiding eternally, they're in the punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved, except for those who repent after that, and correct themselves. For Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful, meaning if they err, they apostate but then they repent, they make amends, Allah will forgive them, the Arab how vast is your forgiveness. Indeed, those who reject the message

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

after

02:00:00--> 02:00:41

their belief and then increase in disbelief. Never will their claimed repentance be accepted, and they are the ones astray. So those who make this religion into a joke that one day, I'm Muslim another day, I don't know, I don't know what I follow. This is a serious matter. This is not a joke, that when a person feels like it, they say they're Muslim, and their practice. And when they don't feel like it, they leave it that they say I don't identify as a Muslim. And this is not a joke take this matter very seriously. Because who knows? What if the tofield is completely taken away. Indeed, those who disbelieve and die while they're disbelievers never would the whole capacity of the earth

02:00:41--> 02:01:28

in gold be accepted from one of them, if he would seek to ransom himself with it. Meaning if you offered so much gold of the Day of Judgment, that take all of this and set me free, spare me, it will not be accepted, for those will be a painful punishment, and they will have no helpers, we see that if a person does an atom's weight of good today in this life, it will be accepted, it will be multiplied. But on that day, on the day of judgment, middle of the fill of the earth in gold will not be accepted. Charity will not be accepted on that day. So give it today, do it today. We learned that the person with the least punishment in hell will be brought out and asked would you offer the

02:01:29--> 02:02:14

earth spill in gold as ransom to come out of hell? He will say Yes, my lord. And Allah will say you have lied, I asked you for what was less and easier than that as of it was easier. And what was that? That you do not associate anything with me? But you did not even do that. So remember, if a person gives something today, if a person does something good today, if they believe today, only then will they be successful in the hereafter. And if a person does not have a man right now, then on the Day of Judgment, the earth spill of gold even will not suffice. This shows us how precious how valuable even is and it is something that we should be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for now,

02:02:15--> 02:03:01

when we start thinking of Islam as a burden, the commands of Islam as a burden, no, they're a blessing. So we say severe now, what Alterna was alumna although we have heard, we have obeyed we have surrendered to you say you pardon us and you help us and and to do good. A person must keep seeking the help of Allah soprano Tada. If a person gives even half a day to in charity, that could save him. So don't be Don't be lazy over here. Do whatever good that you can and expect the best reward from Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all delfy to Zeljko malachite on sabbatical. lahoma will be handed a shadow Allah Illa illa Anta a stone Furukawa to a lake Assalamu alaykum
