Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

Alhamdulillah

00:00:12--> 00:00:33

are all the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim er Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim. publisher it is Audrey way acidity emri whiterock. That Amelie Sani Yakubu Kohli along Matthew Kirby was said deadly Sani was full to him at akorbi Armenia but I mean,

00:00:34--> 00:01:25

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a believer who recites the Quran is like an orange is citrus fruit, whose fragrance is sweet and whose taste is also sweet. A believer who does not recite the Quran is like a date which has no fragrance, but at least it is sweet in its taste. And the hypocrite who recites the Quran is like a basil, whose fragrance is sweet, but whose taste is bitter. And the hypocrite who does not recite the Quran is like the color Singh, which has no fragrance and it also has a bitter taste. So remember, we see in this Hadees, that a person who recites the Quran, believes in it and acts upon it is among the best of Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:25--> 00:02:21

servants, and we should all try to increase our rank in this month of Ramadan by improving in our recitation by improving in our action and our reflection. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those who are sweet and our fragrant juice number six Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, la you have Billa who will be soon so emotional, totally in lemons. lolium. What can Allahu semiya idema Allah does not like the public mention of evil, except by one who has been wronged And ever is Allah hearing and knowing. The fact is that there are words we speak, that Allah subhanaw taala likes and approves off. And words we speak that he does not like law you hibou Allah does not like certain words. There

00:02:21--> 00:03:06

are words that Allah subhanaw taala likes, for example, the words of the when a person says subpoena law and handed in La La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, they're praising Allah remembering Allah glorifying him thanking Him, then these kind of words are liked by Allah, they become a Hubble canal, the most beloved of speech. And in this ayah we learn about words which Allah subhana wa tada does not like and this is something that we need to pay attention to. We need to pay attention to what we say with our mouths, the words that we uttered, the expressions that we use, are these words that are bringing us Allah subhanho Tatas approval, or are these words that are taking us away from

00:03:06--> 00:03:55

Allah subhanaw taala his approval. So in this ayah, we learned about the words which Allah subhanaw taala does not like the speech that he does not approve of, and that speech is Allah Jalla be su immunol COVID the public open loud mention of evil, remember that evil whether it is in thought or speech or action, this is something that Allah subhanaw taala does not approve. And publicising spreading evil is something that a lot does not like when this is verbal, unless pound dollar does not like such language at all. He does not like such statements at all. And these statements can be in the form of, for example, a person making Dora against another, a person invoking curses against

00:03:55--> 00:04:43

another or this can also be backbiting another saying bad things about another even though they may be true. And then thirdly, this can also include speaking in an evil way to someone, for example, using harsh language rude words to someone. Here we learn that almost penalty Allah does not like such words, in layman's lilliam except by one who has been wronged, meaning the oppressed has been allowed to make the law against the oppressor. The oppressed has been allowed to talk about the wrong that was done to them, whether this is in therapy, or it is in order to warn other people, and the oppressed has also been allowed to respond to the one who has been verbally abusive to them. But

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

how in like manner, why? Why has this permission been given, so that instead of becoming physically violent, or suffering from the suppressed pain, a person has a healthy Avenue or the ability to express themselves so that they can feel really

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

their anger may subside. So remember, it is not sinful. It is not disrespectful. It is not considered backbiting. When a person says something bad about another when they have been oppressed in order to seek justice, or in order to get help, or in order to seek Allah subhanaw taala as help, and therefore this is not sinful. We learn in a hadith that a man came to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam demanding his depths. And when he came, he started behaving very rudely with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, the companions intended to stop this men, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, leave him, because the creditor has the right to speak,

00:05:44--> 00:06:36

meaning do not stop him, even though it appears to be disrespectful, but he has the right to demand. But remember, that even the oppressed person should be very careful. So only speak as much as is true. And do not embellish your complaints with lies and with false accusations, do not pray against the oppressor, what he does not deserve, do not respond in a worse way. Because then you're going to become the aggressor. If as long as a person is speaking only what is true and fair, that is permissible. Even if the words seem inappropriate. What can Allahu semir in Lima, and Allah is Ever hearing ever knowing, meaning he hears the complaint of the oppressed, he hears the daraz of the

00:06:36--> 00:07:27

oppressed, and he knows what the oppressor has done. And remember, Allah subhanaw taala knows both sides. So he will be completely just in a narration we learned that are the major sins is that a person attacks the honor of a Muslim without any right, and of the major sins is that a person hurled two insults in response to one insult that was hurled towards him. A lot of times this happens that when someone has been verbally abusive towards us, we become so angry, and we believe that we have the right to say whatever we want. And so when a person responds with double wrong, then this is injustice. In fact, it is a major sin, then it is said intubate, do hiren. If instead

00:07:27--> 00:08:18

you show some good out to who or you can seal it out, therefore I'm suing, or you pardon and offense for in the law can or for one pudiera, then Indeed, Allah is Ever pardoning and competent. You see what Alyssa penalty likes, is the concealment the privacy of righteous deeds, but a person is not always able to do that. Why? Because the nature of certain deeds, certain good deeds is that they are public, you're not able to keep them private, or a person does not always have privacy. So if he leaves it because of that, that he loses the opportunity to do good. So whether good is done publicly, or privately, it is good in tubu. Hi, Ron, out of both cases are permissible. What matters

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

is a person's intention,

00:08:21--> 00:09:14

outdoor foreign suing, or if you pardon an offense. And remember, if a person pardons the evil that was done to him, then that is excellent. Because a person should remember that Allah is our fool. Allah is a deed. Allah is Ever pardoning. And at the same time, he is all able to execute his punishment on those who do wrong, yet he forgives. So if you show pardon to others, then Allah will also pardon you. Remember, forgiving people benefits you before it benefits them. And forgiving them is only easy when a person realizes their own imperfections, their own mistakes, that you know what, if they have done wrong to me, then I have also done wrong too many. I am also guilty of many sins.

00:09:14--> 00:09:25

So let me pardon them. Perhaps Allah will also Pardon me. And if I start taking revenge on every little thing, then what if I am also treated the same way by Allah?

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

Romano de la Martin who said that the one who does not show mercy is not shown mercy. The one who does not forgive is not forgiven. The one who does not show pardon is not shown pardon. The one who does not accept apology is not accepted apology from and the one who does not save himself from sin is not saved from sin. So treat people the way you want to be treated. We all want to be excused for our mistakes. We all want to be forgiven.

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

for our sins, so let us show forgiveness. And let us come up with many excuses for the mistakes that people made. Make, and especially these days when we are at home, when we are constantly with our family members, and sometimes we get hurt by what they say, annoyed by what they say, learn to overlook, learn to ignore, learn to forgive and pardon. People should feel safe at home. Not that they feel that they're constantly being criticized, constantly being stopped, constantly being, you know, told what to do what not to do, give space to people make their life easy, and Allah subhanaw taala will also make your life easy. So do not dwell on the mistakes of people show pardon. In an in

00:10:44--> 00:11:28

a hadith we learn or for amandla lemak pardon the one who has wronged you join with the one who cuts off from you. Do good to the one who is bad to you, and speak the truth, even if it be against your self. And remember that when you pardon someone that you actually receive the help of Allah, when you overlook the mistakes of other people, when you ignore the wrongs that they do the annoyances that they cause, you know, just sometimes we get very irritated by certain individuals, by the manner that they speak the kind of words that they use, you know, their language, we get very irritated by them. Sometimes they're very presence is a source of annoyance for us. So learn to

00:11:28--> 00:12:16

overlook and ignore, especially when they're harming you. Still, if you ignore them, and if you forgive them, if you pardon them, then remember that Allah subhanaw taala has helped will be with you, because Allah is on the side of the oppressed, not the oppressor, in a Hadees we learn in them in Mooji battlefield of the things that necessarily bring about forgiveness, meaning because of which a person is certainly forgiven is what bed lucilla spreading the Sunnah, eating constantly saying Santa's making golf for others. Assalamu alaykum Assalamualaikum warahmatullah, spreading the sun and this is something that necessarily brings forgiveness waha snoodle, Kalam and good speech,

00:12:16--> 00:12:59

meaning speaking nicely with others, even if we believe they don't deserve it, even if we believe that they are in the wrong. So in retaliation also, even though we are allowed to speak in like manner, but give preference to good speech, say what is better, so that Allah will be on your side. And remember, this is prophetic behavior. We learned from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that at one point when he had been affected by magic, and the charm was destroyed, and Allah subhanaw taala cured him. I showed you a lot more and he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Are you not going to expose this magic? Meaning Are you not going to expose the

00:12:59--> 00:13:40

person who did magic on you? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied, what an honor for UCLA who an Athena alumnus he shoves that As for me, I dislike to provoke evil among the people, meaning when Allah has cured me, then as gratitude, I'm not going to talk about this, I'm not going to spread this. Why? Because evil only leads to more evil. And when a person responds with forgiveness, when a person responds at times with silence with pardon, then this is something that puts an end it puts a stop to the evil. It doesn't spread any more than

00:13:41--> 00:14:27

Indeed, those who disbelieve in Allah and His messengers, and wish to discriminate between Allah and His messengers, and say, we believe in some and disbelieve in others, meaning we will do whatever we want to do. We will choose to believe in whatever we want. You don't tell us anything, and such people who wish to adopt a way in between. Those are the disbelievers truly, we have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment, unless as about such people that they are Ola eco humble cafe Luna hepco. Remember their religion, Islam is not to be interpreted, however, one feels like a person cannot pick and choose what they want to believe in, and what they don't want to believe in

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

what they want to follow and what they don't want to follow. The religion is not about desire. This is about surrendering to Allah azza wa jal, but they who believe in Allah, when levena amanu Bella he was also Lee, but they who believe in Allah and His messengers, and do not discriminate between any of them, meaning they believe in all of the prophets of Allah, to those he is going to give their rewards and ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. So this shows us

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

Very clearly, that in order to be saved from the humiliation of the Hereafter, in order for one's faith to be valid and rewarded, one must believe in all of the prophets of Allah and all of the pillars of faith. Yes. iluka Anil keytab, the People of the Scripture ask you, they demand from you what to bring down to them a book from the heaven. But they had asked of Musa alayhis salam, even greater than that, and said, show us Allah outright. So the Thunderbolt struck them for their wrongdoing. And then they took the calf for worship, after clear evidence has had come to them. And we pardon to that, And We gave Moosa A clear authority. What Tina Moosa, suparna Medina, you see,

00:15:47--> 00:16:32

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would feel very hurt and upset by the demands of people. And by the way, people would hasten into unbelief. And here we learned that the example of Musashi is Sam is given. Musa alayhis salam was truly hurt by his own people. They didn't obey him much. And they said very hurtful things to him. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam often remembered the patience of Masada, his son, and we learned that once a man accused the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of being unfair in the distribution of some property. And when the Prophet salallahu earlier center was informed about that, he was visibly upset. But then he said, the musar

00:16:32--> 00:17:20

alayhi salatu was Salam. Salam in valic for sabara. They hurt Musashi sallam, way more than this, but he was patient. So remember, the harsh, rude, unfair treatment of people is something that is very difficult to bear. But remember, people spare nobody. We learn that Allah is patient over the wrong that people attribute to him. The prophets were also patient over the unfair demands that were made from them, and the hurtful things that were set to them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was patient by remembering the patience of musar de Sena. So when you remember the patience of the prophets, then it's easy to have somebody, then it's easy to show pardon, then it is easy to

00:17:20--> 00:18:07

not stoop to the level of the aggressor. What a foreigner folk omotola me therapy him, and we raised over them the amount for refusal of their covenant, and we sat to them enter the gate bowing humbly, and we said to them do not transgress on the Sabbath, and we took from them a solemn covenant. But what did they do? Did they fulfill those covenants? No, they broke them. For the man luckily he meetha home and for their breaking of the covenant. What gouffre him Biya Tila and their disbelief in the signs of Allah will continue he will ambia ability help and their killing of the prophets without right will probably him Kuru buena wolf. And they're saying our hearts are wrapped by Baba

00:18:07--> 00:18:52

Allah Who are they have be cuddly him. Rather, Allah has sealed them because of their disbelief. Further, you mean una de la kalila. So they believe not except for a few. So remember, the people who break their promises with Allah, Who transgress against the very individuals who are good to them, meeting the prophets of Allah, they tried to kill them. And they and the people who refuse to listen to anything good, who consider themselves to be perfect as they are because they say our hearts are wrapped meaning we know enough so you don't tell us what is right and what is wrong. Then such people, the ability to do good is taken away from them. Then a seal is set over their hearts.

00:18:53--> 00:19:37

Remember, a mistake can be made by anybody. But the believer feels bad. They feel remorse, they feel guilt. And they turn that remorse into humility before Allah seeking His forgiveness, not becoming stubborn and arrogant. That Who are you to tell me and who are you to advise me Mind your own business. I know enough. I know already. This kind of arrogant behavior is not from the believer. would be cool for him. We'll call him Allah Maruyama. butanna Lima, and for their disbelief, and they're saying against Millennium a great slender, meaning the bunny is slightly they accused her of committing Zina, even though they knew of her piety. So because of such reasons, Allah subhanaw

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

taala curse them. We'll call him in that paternal mercy. And they're saying proudly, that indeed we have killed the mercy. Isa, the son of money on the Messenger of Allah. Look at the audacity. That one is that a person does something wrong. The other level is to brag about it. To be arrogant about it to be proud

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

Out of the sense that a person has committed and they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but another was made to resemble him to them. It is said that he sorry. So that was what the harati Yun when the people were coming to kill him. So he asked his Harada Yunus to who would volunteer himself to take his place. And one of the hawala Yun did. So he was made to look like a Sally is set up. And when the people came and killed that men, they thought that they had killed a Sally setup, but in reality, they have not killed him, nor did they crucify him. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. And the fact is that the People of the Book do differ over until

00:20:40--> 00:21:28

today. There is no single standard version within Christianity even as to what happened to a Saudi Sena. Some say that he died on the cross. Some say that he was resurrected after that, some say that he remained for 40 days after the resurrection. The fact is, they have no knowledge of it, except the following assumption. But what is factual? wema otterloo yaquina and they did not kill him for certain Then where did he go? bumrah Farah who long in a rather Allah raised him to himself, well can Allahu Aziz and hekima And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise? Remember, Allah subhanaw taala took his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, up into the heavens at the time of Islam, the

00:21:28--> 00:22:16

Night Journey, marriage, the ascension, and he also raised reciting his Salam before that. Why How? Because Allah is Allah disease. He is a disease and hekima he is almighty, for whom nothing is hard. He is Hakeem his hokum, his judgment, his decision prevails. And remember, our disease also means that Allah honors His servants. He is the source of their reserves. So when He is the Lord of honor, the one who has all honor, that he gives it to whom he pleases, he gives it to his friends. So the person who Allah defends the person who Allah shelters, the person who Allah helps them remember, nobody at all can harm him. So do not be afraid of what people say, or what people might say.

00:22:17--> 00:23:02

Remember, Allah is as easy and hekima did Allah not defend his righteous servants? Did Allah not protect his prophets and his messengers he did. So don't be afraid in obey Allah subhanaw taala then it is said, and there is none from the People of the Scripture, but that he will surely believe in a Sati Salaam before his death, and on the Day of Resurrection, he will be against them a witness, remember that ERISA is set up, we'll certainly return to the world. We learned in the Hadees that he will land on a minaret in Damascus. And there are over 17 narrations that mentioned the return of a Saudi SNM with so much detail, the very place that he will descend in what his appearance, physical

00:23:02--> 00:23:27

appearance will look like. You know, the kind of clothes that he will be wearing, and what he will do all of these descriptions are given. We learned that he will kill the judge, the judge might judge will be destroyed because of his draw, and there will be peace in the world. He will establish justice, there will be hedge there will be aroma, and all people will be Muslim, all evil and wrongdoing will come to an end, the only religion will be Islam,

00:23:28--> 00:24:17

for building Amina Latina hairdo. So because of wrongdoing on the part of the Jews, we made unlawful for them certain good foods, which had been lawful to them previously. And because of their averting from the way of Allah, many people, two things are mentioned over here, which become two crimes, which become a source of deprivation. The thing is, we all want good things in life. And sometimes we feel that the law that Allah subhanaw taala has given us is such that it deprives us It doesn't allow us to enjoy good things. But the fact is that a person can only enjoy good things in the true sense. When Allah subhanaw taala gives them what allows the panel data enables and allows by

00:24:17--> 00:24:52

violating the commands of a law, by disobeying a law, we're not going to get true enjoyment. by stopping people from the way of a law, we're not going to get true enjoyment. true joy is attained by obeying Allah subhanaw taala. And if even momentarily, a person gets to enjoy some things here and there, then that enjoyment will only be temporary, it is not going to be eternal. It is not going to be everlasting. Because look at what happened with the people of the book when they committed injustice.

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

And one is not just in the form of killing another human being loden is also in the form of sinning discipline.

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

Allah openly and proudly violating the limits that Allah has set, then what is the consequence of this, the consequences how alumna or lay him play you, but good things become unlawful, and they don't just become unlawful in the way that they were made unlawful for the bunny is slightly, that literally the good things are made, how long upon them. But sometimes this is also in the form of deprivation, where a person does not get the ability, or the opportunity to enjoy good things. For example, they lose their health, they lose their peace of mind, they lose their, you know, their, their their freedom. Or for instance, that you know, there's so many problems in life, so many

00:25:42--> 00:26:29

worries that concern them, that even though the best food is in front of them, they're not able to enjoy it. Why? Because their heart is grieving. Why? Because they're upset, and they're worried. So remember, true enjoyment is in obeying Allah. It is by obeying Allah, not by disobeying Allah, what the human Riba and because of their taking of interest, what God knew who and who, while they had been forbidden from it was actually him unwell a nasty bit badly. And because of their consuming other people's wealth and justly, we all need to reflect on ourselves, if we feel any kind of deprivation, that we feel that we are not getting to enjoy the blessings of Allah for whatever

00:26:29--> 00:27:19

reason, then we need to reflect upon ourselves. Is our source of income lawful? Is our wealth mixed with Riba? And are we taking money from people unlawfully? What artisanal cafe Dena mean, whom are the Urban alima and we have prepared for the disbelievers among them a painful punishment, but those firm in knowledge among them, lacking it Rossi hoonah, filler elemi Minh home, but those firm in knowledge among them, one won't be known. And the believers what do they do? They believe in what has been revealed to you or profit and what was revealed before you and the established years of prayer and the givers of Zakat and the believers in Allah and the Last Day, those we will give a

00:27:19--> 00:28:09

great reward. So here alasa hoonah filler in our mentioned, those who are firm in knowledge, who are the Nazir Eben yazeed said that there are those who are humble before Allah, and who are eager to seek His approval. They do not seek to exalt themselves over those who are greater than them, nor belittle those who are inferior. This is the sign of a truly knowledgeable person, that he is humble before Allah subhanaw taala. eager to please Allah, not to please people, no eager to please Allah. They do not exalt themselves over those who are greater than them, meaning they recognize that Allah subhanaw taala has given certain individuals privilege over them, whether it is through status or it

00:28:09--> 00:28:52

is through knowledge, or it is through piety, or it is through their age, or whatever social position they have. They recognize the worth of people, they recognize the greatness in others, nor do they belittle those who are inferior. They don't look down on those who have less than them. Some said that last year filler in is the one who has four things and we should all think about ourselves. Because if ever we are asked, Do you know about Islam, we will say of course we do. But what is the level of our knowledge these signs will show. The first thing is with his Lord, he has taqwa. Secondly, with the creation, he is humble. Thirdly, towards the world, he is disinterested,

00:28:53--> 00:29:46

And fourthly, against his knifes, he's tribes. So a truly knowledgeable person has the fear of Allah is humble with people and is disinterested in the world. He's not greedy for this world, and his tribes against his own nuts, he disciplines his own desire. So you see, there are many people who learn, but there are very few who actually become firm in their knowledge and firmness and knowledge only comes when a person acts upon that knowledge when a person is willing to to accept the effect of that knowledge. Indeed, We have revealed to you as we revealed to new and the prophets after him, and we revealed to Ibrahim ismar he is how they are called the descendants. Risa a eWb, Eunice Harun

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

and Sulayman and two that would we gave the book of zebu weru Sudan called the cosna Houma la come in kaaboo was also an alumna, so sama lake and we sent messengers about whom we have related

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

They're stories to you before and messengers about whom we have not related to you. And the fact is that if we look at the Quran, there is only about 25 prophets or so that have been mentioned that we know about. And we learned in Hadith that there were many more profits than that. Over 100,000 profits that Allah subhanaw taala sent. And Allah spoke to Masai Salaam with direct speech, meaning the way speech is done. Allah subhanaw taala spoke to Masada Salaam. Who were these messengers? Why were they sent? A letter tells us little Sula, MOBA Shireen women, VT, we sent messengers as Bringers of good tidings and Warner's so that mankind will have no argument against Allah. After the

00:30:45--> 00:31:15

messengers, nobody will be able to say that, oh, we did not know no one came to guide us And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise, lacking in La Jolla shadow Bhima unzila Lake, if people do not believe, then don't worry, why, because but Allah bears witness to that which he has revealed to you. He has sent it down with his knowledge. Remember, unzila who berated me, this is based on Allah.

00:31:16--> 00:32:07

And Allah zielen is perfect. His knowledge is perfect. So this book, The Quran, is all facts. You see, everything that we read or study, it is such that it is prone to some kind of error. And this is the reason why books are revised. Right? There are new journals every now and then there's do new publications, there are newer additions, and then there's reputations and corrections, there's science, there's pseudoscience, any the knowledge of human beings is ever evolving. Why? Because it is not. It is not absolute truth. It is just based on people's understanding at the time, or their observation at the time. And we are limited in what we can understand what we can observe what we

00:32:07--> 00:32:54

can know. But the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala, the one who created an eye Allah woman Hala, the one who created does he not know, of course he knows everything. So unzila who bear in me, the Quran is all help. So we should have full confidence and full trust that nothing in this book is wrong. Nothing. There is absolutely no error in this book at all. Anything else that we read? Yes, it can have errors in it. We can have our doubts, we can have our reservations. But when it comes to the book of Allah, we can be free of this fear and Zilla who berated me, Allah has revealed it with his knowledge. One minute, Equatoria shadows, and the angels also testify worker fabula he shahida

00:32:55--> 00:33:39

and sufficient is Allah as witness. It's amazing how we take the knowledge of people so seriously, right? We are willing to spend our lives learning it, we are willing to spend a lot of our money into learning the theories, the definitions, the studies, which are done by people, and that is perfectly fine. I'm not belittling that. But remember that the knowledge of people has its place, and the port on has its own place. And the place of the Quran, the status of the Quran is greater than the status of the knowledge of people. The Quran deserves greater attention. But the fact is that we have not given the Quran what it deserves. We read it a little, we memorize it, perhaps. And

00:33:39--> 00:34:23

then we think that we have done our part, we think we have done enough. And then for the rest of our lives, we don't need to open the book of Allah. No, the Quran deserves our attention, that we keep opening it, we keep reflecting upon it. We keep diving into its deep meanings, we keep benefiting from it. And the person who learns the Quran, then truly, they have received a huge favor, or thought said that when one of us learned the Quran, about Abdul Rahman tsunami would say that you have taken from the knowledge of Allah, you have taken from the knowledge of Allah, and the best of you can only be the one who acts by it. So remember the Quran and zillah who obey me, it contains

00:34:23--> 00:34:57

the knowledge of Allah. So having it knowing the Quran, learning the Quran, is a great privilege. And the best is the person who actually act upon that knowledge. Indeed, those who disbelieve and avert people from the way of Allah have certainly gone far astray. How is it that a person averts people from the way of Allah by their own actions? This is not always done verbally. Yes, there are people whose goal in life is to stop people from Islam. So they will make such videos and write such articles and fill them with lies and you know,

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

blow things out of proportion.

00:35:00--> 00:35:48

And Miss, represent the truths and distort the truths. There are people who will do that. But think about ourselves, how is it that we end up stopping people from the way of Allah when we don't follow the Quran, when we say that we are believers in Allah, but our actions are so hurtful. Our behaviors are so deceitful. This is how people are stopped from the way of Allah. So we all need to take a look at our lives and see how much do our lives align with the book of Allah? Indeed, those who disbelieve and commit wrong or injustice, never will ALLAH forgive them, nor will he guide them to a path except the path of hell. They will abide there in forever. And that for Allah is always easy.

00:35:48--> 00:36:34

Yeah. And you have NASS all mankind, but the Jacomo rasuluh Bill hachimura, become the messenger has come to you with the truth from your Lord. And what is the truth that the messenger has brought? It is the Quran and the Sunnah. So what should you do for me? No, so all of you believe haima Lacan, this is better for you. What intercoastal and if you disbelieve, then you should know that indeed to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth And ever is Allah knowing and wise. Yeah, lol kita all People of the Scripture lambda Hello, Phoebe Unicom. Do not commit access in your religion, or people of the book. Consider this title. Who are your folks? Who are you? You are the People of

00:36:34--> 00:37:20

the Scripture, that is your identity. So what benefits you check yourself? Are you really following the scripture? Let the Hanafi Dini comb, do not commit access in your religion. You see Hulu in religion is that a person goes beyond the limits that their religion has set for something. The Jews did a Lulu How? By denying and opposing reciting his sin and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Christians went to another extreme in their love and adoration of reciting his Sunnah. So they called him God's Son. And remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us against Hulu. He said a year come when Hulu or people you must fear Allah and do not let shavon get

00:37:20--> 00:38:09

the better of you. Do not let shape on get the better of you. I am Mohammed, the slave of Allah, the son of the slave of Allah and His Messenger, I am the messenger of Allah. And by Allah, I do not like that you exalt me above the position that Allah has given me. Meaning do not do Hulu. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Hulu, beware of vanilla because it destroyed the people before you. So we should be very careful sometimes in our love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in singing his praises, we take his level to the level of Allah and some people who need to take that even higher stuff it alone, do not commit to know Remember, the beauty of

00:38:09--> 00:38:56

something is in it being itself while at the corner of Allah in the UK and do not say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah or Isa the son of money um, was but a messenger of Allah and His word, which he directed to Millennium and the soul created at the command of Allah. For amino Bella he was also Li so believe in Allah and His messengers, when at the Hulu Sonata, and you should not say senesce So the concept of Trinity is being rejected into who stopped this desist, it is better for you, what is better for you that you give Allah His right, that Allah is the only God worthy of worship, and everyone else besides Him, whether it is reciting of Senna or Muhammad sallallahu

00:38:56--> 00:39:45

alayhi wa sallam, they are Allah servants in Nam, Allahu Allahu wa ahead. Indeed Allah is but one God, super Hannah, who Exalted is He above having a son, To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is on the earth. Waka fabula he joaquina and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. So remember, Allah, the first and the last, everything belongs to him. He is not in need of a son or a partner. Everything is owned by him, all our Allah servants lanius Thank you for mercy. Never would the mercy disdain he would never ever look down. He would never think that it is beneath his level, what is beneath his level, to be a servant of Allah, nor with the angels near Allah, and

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

whoever disdains his worship and is arrogant, he will gather them to, he will gather them to himself all together. Remember, the greatness of a slave of Allah isn't being a slave to others.

00:40:00--> 00:40:54

Look, this is the highest level of praise that a human being can be given. When they perfect and embody absolute servitude to Allah. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is called our ullas slave in the Quran many times. And this is what the prophets of Allah aspired for also, that they should be good slaves to Allah. So remember, you are not doing the Prophet, any favor with your Hulu, because the prophets of Allah found their honor, in servitude to Allah. They did not Yes, then give, they did not think that worshipping Allah was beneath them, that it was humiliating to be God's worshiper. No, they understood that their honor was actually in being a worshiper, a slave to

00:40:54--> 00:41:44

Allah subhanaw taala. And no person should think like this, that if I am called Allah slave, then this is an embarrassment that this is derogatory. So why do you feel that you are insulting a prophet of Allah by calling him Allah slave, being a slave to Allah is not an insult, it is actually an honor. The problem is that many people, you know, they do actually feel embarrassed to worship Allah. They feel that obeying Allah, you know, in certain commands, that is beneath their level, it is embarrassing. Whereas the true believer does not feel embarrassed to obey Allah. He understands that his honor, and his dignity is actually in obeying a law. You know how these we learn that the

00:41:44--> 00:42:02

believers are humble and compliant, like the friendly camel, which if LED, it yields, if it is driven, it complies, and if it is made to kneel, and sit down on rocky ground, it will kneel down it will sit down over there.

00:42:03--> 00:42:44

But sometimes, we become very stubborn. We don't want to be told what to do, or what not to do, what to wear, or what not to wear. We just want to be following our own desires. We think that following the commands of Allah is beneath our level of stuff that Allah we should free ourselves of such arrogance. And as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, he will give them in full their rewards and grant them extra from his bounty. But as for those who disdain, meaning, who feel embarrassed to worship Allah, and were arrogant, who refused, then He will punish them with a painful punishment, and they will not find for themselves besides Allah, any protector or helper,

00:42:44--> 00:43:30

all mankind, there has come to you a conclusive proof from your Lord, meaning the Quran, and we have sent down to you a clear light, the Quran is light, it is a conclusive proof. We learned that we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You must recite the Quran, and you must remember Allah, because it is a means of your good mention in the sky, and a light for you on the earth. So those who believe so those who believe in Allah and hold fast to him, where the sun will be, how is it that a person can hold fast to Allah by calling upon him by putting one's trust in Allah seeking Allah's help, depending upon him in trusting one's affairs to him and holding on to

00:43:30--> 00:43:46

his book, because this is what it means to believe in Allah, then such people, he will admit them to mercy from himself and bounty and guide them to himself on a straight path, meaning a level guide such people who those who hold on to a law,

00:43:47--> 00:44:30

they request from you a legal ruling, say, Allah gives you a ruling concerning the calella, who is the kallada, a person who has neither descendants nor ascendance, meaning as heirs. B, so he only has siblings when he dies. So if a man dies, leaving no child but only a sister, she will have half of what he left, and he inherits from her if she dies, and has no child, but if there are two sisters or more, they will have two thirds of what he left. If there are both brothers and sisters, the male will have the share of two females, Allah makes clear to you His law, lest you go astray and Allah is Knowing of all things. So we see over here that the law that Allah subhanaw taala has

00:44:30--> 00:44:50

given whether it is the law of inheritance or any other law, it is not to make our lives difficult. He has revealed this law why you begin a law hula comb until a new to save us from misguidance to save us from getting lost from making mistakes from committing errors from being unjust.

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

Similar to man either. similar to mine either, is a Madani Sula, and it was revealed towards the end of the maddening era, which means that none of us

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

commands of the soldier have been abrogated their final commands and we see that

00:45:06--> 00:45:56

in the Quran over at times a lost pounds it says here a un livina. Armando, all you have believed and in this sort of along there are 16 verses and begin with a un Latina amanu or you will have believed and that is how the sooner begins also, yeah, are you Hello, Tina amanu our full bit of code, all you who have believed, fulfill all contracts, meaning all obligations that are imposed upon you, whether from Allah or from the people that fulfill them lawful for you are the animals of grazing livestock, except for that which is recited to you hunting not being permitted, while you are in the state of Islam. Indeed, Allah ordains what he intends in the law Yakumo may you read, so

00:45:56--> 00:46:41

your job is to follow and obey. In certain Lisa, we learned that the People of the Book failed to fulfill the covenants that they made with Allah. And it was because of their breach of the covenants that Allah subhanaw taala was displeased with them. And as a result they suffered in this life and there is more that is prepared in the hereafter. So this sutra begins with the command that all believers, you should fulfill your covenants, you should fulfill your promises. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, let me manna, Lima, la amanatullah, who will Edina Lima, la de la who there is no faith in the one who does not fulfill trusts, and there is no worship in the one who

00:46:41--> 00:47:10

does not fulfill covenants. So remember, whether a promise is between two individuals or two nations, the sign of a believer of a religious servant is that he fulfills his promises. We think that we think that the religion is only on the prayer mat. And if we want to worship Allah, then we just, you know, praise Allah, and that's it. No religion, obedience to Allah worship, amen. This extends beyond the prayer rug.

00:47:11--> 00:47:58

This is something that has an impact on the way that we interact with people. So pay regard to the covenants, pay regard to the promises. And part of that is to be mindful of Allah with regards to what you eat, eat only that which he has made lawful for you. And remember, it is up to Allah to decide that, or you who have believed, do not violate the rights of Allah, or the sanctity of the sacred month, or neglect the marking of the sacrificial animals and garlanding them, or violate the safety of those coming to the sacred house, seeking bounty from their Lord and His approval. But when you come out of Iran, then you may hunt, and do not let the hatred of a people for having

00:47:58--> 00:48:44

obstructed you from a monster that how long lead you to transgress. This is so beautiful. You see, there was once a time when the Muslims constantly suffered at the hands of their enemy. When the Muslims went to MCI in order to perform law, the machine did not allow them to enter imagine, and And there came a point where the Muslims were victorious. Allah subhanaw taala gave, gave conquest of Makkah to His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Muslims are advised that now that you have the upper hand, now that you have that freedom, then do not let the hatred of a people lead you to transgress. Yes, once upon a time they hurt you. They annoyed you, they persecuted you. But now

00:48:44--> 00:49:29

get over that past and if they have repented, if they have made amends, then you should also move on. And also you see someone sometimes you know, they have wronged you in the past and then when you are dealing with them, you are tempted to take revenge. So yes, you are allowed to take revenge, but only as much as the wrong that was done to you. You're not allowed to cause more damage. Because if you cause more damage, if you are to do if you transgress, then you become the transgressor and a lot does not like such people. This is how just our religion is what are our new albizia toccoa and cooperate in righteousness and piety. So any person, whether they are our friend or foe, when

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

they're doing something good, and they need our cooperation, than cooperate with them. So here we see bid and taco are mentioned, they're paired together, that if someone is doing good, then join them. You see in taco is the pleasure of Allah and in bid is the pleasure of people. Bid includes the doing of all righteous deeds, whether their obligations or their recommended and taqwa includes leaving all forbidden things and it is not just enough to do good

00:50:00--> 00:50:41

It is also important to have Taqwa to refrain from what from what Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden. We learned in a Hadith, that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that on every Muslim there is enjoined a compulsory charity, meaning every Muslim must give charity every day. So the people said, What if he has nothing, and no money to give? The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said he should work with his hands, so that he may benefit himself and give in charity. They said, if he cannot work or does not work, he said that he should help the oppressed, the people who are sad. They said, if he does not do that, meaning if he's not in a position to help others, he

00:50:41--> 00:51:24

said that he should enjoin what is right. They said, What if he's not able to do that? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that he should refrain from doing evil, for that will be considered for him as a charity. So remember, refraining from wrong is also necessary, it is not enough to just cooperate in you know, charitable causes, that we raise money for different good causes, that is good. But we should also cooperate in order to stop one another, and to stop people from doing wrong things. With our new ability with duck Wah, you see, there are good things that you can do on your own. But then, there are things that you cannot, that you cannot do alone, they are

00:51:24--> 00:52:09

greater tasks or bigger goals. So they require greater effort for which one person alone is not enough. You need to join hands, you need the support of one another. So what is the lesson that we are being given over here, support one another, help one another in different ways. And sometimes offering that support can just be giving an encouraging word, or giving an ear listening to someone, right? being there to help them giving them a reminder. And remember that when you help someone do something good, then you also get reward for the good that was done. We learned how to do that once a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, asking for a mount meaning a means of

00:52:09--> 00:52:51

transportation. And he said that my mind has been ruined. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said go to so and so. So the man went to him. And that man gave him an animal. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever leads to good, then for him is the same reward as the one who does it, or acts upon it. So darwino, idle, busy with taco cooperate, and especially even when people are fasting, when people are, you know, tired, they're sleep deprived, or people are worried, you know about the work. And so many people are in a position like that, where they have work to do, and then their children are home. And then they have the family to look after. Also, you know,

00:52:51--> 00:53:29

before people would eat lunch, at work, or at school, but now there is breakfast at home lunch at home dinner and others. You know, before there were if thought is now every thought is going to be at home. So it's important that we create ease for each other, we help and support one another. So for example, if you go into the kitchen, and help your wife, help your sister help your mother, right, even if it's just doing the dishes, or doing a little bit of household work then so that your wife, your sister, your mother, they're not exhausted and they're also able to worship a lot they're also able to recite some Quran and this then you have a share in that so increase and multiply your

00:53:29--> 00:53:34

rewards by cooperating in good in righteousness.

00:53:35--> 00:54:22

And then what are we no lol is me What are the one but do not cooperate insane and aggression, do not cooperate in this isn't is to do what Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden under the one is to transgress the boundary that Allah subhanaw taala has set to commit what is unlawful. And also remember that Islam is saying is against oneself, or with respect to the rights of Allah and earth when aggression, transgression. This is a sin that harms other people. So don't cooperate in committing sin. don't cooperate in committing injustice in wronging people. Sometimes we see that our friends, our own loved ones are doing something wrong, they're committing the sin, then do not

00:54:22--> 00:54:59

appreciate them. Do not praise them over there. Don't support them over there. Sometimes we see that our loved one is committing aggression. Our own parents at times can be the ones who are being unjust with certain individuals, and they ask for our cooperation, they expect our cooperation so do not cooperate with them in that regard. respectfully disagree. Be just even if it is against you. And temporarily if someone becomes upset with you, that How dare you don't support me? How dare you don't cooperate with me? Then be persistent because eventually they will understand and if

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

They don't then leave it to Allah subhanaw taala. Remember, sometimes people expect wholehearted and unconditional support from us that even when they choose to commit a sin against Allah, that for example, someone decides that, you know, they're they're not going too fast, or they decide that they're not going to, you know, for example, eat only what is lawful or they say that you know what i can dress however I want, I can say whatever I want, and they expect wholehearted support from you know, remember, nobody, nobody at bulk, no human being at all deserves our wholehearted and unconditional support. This is a false concept. This is a false expectation that we say that if you

00:55:47--> 00:56:29

love me, and if you like me, then accept me how I how I am. No, we will accept you the way you are when you when you obey Allah subhanaw taala It doesn't mean that I will turn violent against you. No, it doesn't mean that I will hurl abuses at you. No, but I will call wrong wrong. I will not call wrong, right? Sometimes it happens that people in our own families within our own friends circle, you know, they want to do something wrong and they expect our support. We should not offer our support over there. It doesn't mean that we cut off from them. It doesn't mean that we become rude with them. It doesn't mean that now we start cursing them. No, we in fact, we have to show more love

00:56:29--> 00:57:11

over there. But in showing that love in showing that kindness, we should not change the words of Allah. We should not change the law of Allah. So do not cooperate insane and aggression. We learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is the one who is being oppressed. So the people said Allah's Messenger. It is understood that if you know if someone is being oppressed, and we support them, but how should we help him if he's the oppressor, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, by preventing him from oppressing others. So remember, stopping people from injustice is one of the best ways of supporting them.

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

What the law in the law has shadowed a cop and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is severe in penalty that it is mentioned, prohibited to you are dead animals. And this shows us that everything is not allowed in Islam. There are things that are allowed, and things that are not allowed. And we are to change our desires according to the law of Allah, not change the law of Allah to suit our own desires prohibited to you, which means some things are not allowed in Islam, prohibitive to you are dead animals meaning consuming them, eating them blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah, and those animals that are killed by strangling or by a violent blow,

00:57:57--> 00:58:44

or by a headlong fall, or by the goring of horns. So those are mutual, and those from which a wild animal has eaten, except what you were able to slaughter meaning before it dies, and those which are sacrificed on stolen altars, and also prohibited is that you seek decision through divining arrows. This was a game of chance that the Arabs would play gambling, that is grave disobedience. This day. Those who disbelieve have despaired of defeating your religion, so fear them not, but fear me Filatov showhome was shown me Aloma achimota la cadena calm this day, I have perfected for you your religion? Well, it's too early come near Mati. And I have completed my favor upon you what will lead

00:58:44--> 00:59:32

to local Islam, Medina, and I have approved for you Islam as religion, but whoever is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to say that Indeed, Allah is Forgiving, and merciful. So we see over here, the blessing of the completion of the religion of Islam, that there is guidance regarding every matter. And this, in fact, is a huge blessing. This is the perfection of blessings, the completion of blessings. And this shows us that beyond Islam, there is no need of another religion. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the final prophet, the Seal of the Prophets, and remember that the religious commands the commands of Quran of the sooner they are enough,

00:59:32--> 01:00:00

they're sufficient, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there is nothing that draws you closer to Jenna, except that I have instructed you of it. And there is nothing that draws you closer to hell, except that I have forbidden you from it. So really, there is no need to add anything to Islam, because Islam is complete and perfect. Yes. aluna kamada halal home, they ask you what has been made lawful for them.

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

Call Haleakala Comdata, you back. Say lawful for you are all good foods, all good things, meaning everything is Hello, except for what has been declared unlawful. And also lawful for you is the game caught by what you have trained of hunting animals, which you train as Allah has taught you. So each of what they catch for you, and mention the name of Allah upon it, and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is swift in account, it doesn't take long for him to call people to account. So we see in this ayah, that only that hunt is lawful, which was hunted properly, and what is the proper way of hunting that before shooting the arrow or releasing the train hound, a person takes the name of Allah, and he

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

sees that the hound has actually caught the prey for him and not itself. And this is shows us the virtue of knowledge of training, that the hunt, the catch of a hound that has been given knowledge that has been trained, is lawful, because Mark McKinley been to early Muna Honda Mimara lemma comala. So this shows us the virtue of knowledge on the oma or Hey, Lola Comdata you back this day, all good foods have been made lawful for you. And the food of those who were given the Scripture is also lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them, because both of you mentioned the name of Allah. But remember that if a Muslim slaughters an animal and does not mention the name of Allah,

01:01:32--> 01:02:12

then that animal is not any deliberately leaves it out knowingly leaves it out, then that animal is not going to be lawful for consumption. And likewise, the people of the book also have this slaughter and they don't mention the name of Allah than eating that animal would be sinful. As it is mentioned in the Quran, in the who fisc and lawful in marriage are chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who are given the Scripture before you. But what is the condition? If a man wishes to marry a woman from the people of the book? What is the condition either to move or not would you run when you have given them their due compensation, meaning you

01:02:12--> 01:02:54

have to give them their mother as well. This is so important, whether a man is marrying a slave woman, a free woman, a Muslim woman, or a Christian or Jewish woman from the people of the book, then he must give them a hug to her. This is an obligation. The mahad is not as the right of a free Muslim woman. The man has the right of every woman that a Muslim man marries, whether she is a slave, or she is free, or she is Muslim, or she is a Jew or a Christian. And of course, it is well known that a Muslim man is not allowed to marry a Muslim woman that has already been mentioned in certain Baccarat. We learn in a Hadith, that the mode by which a woman is made lawful to a man

01:02:54--> 01:03:45

belongs to her. Meaning the moment becomes her property. It is her legal right. And after Nika after the marriage, whatever is given to her father, or brother or guardian as an honor belongs to him. And a person is most deserving to be respected because of his daughter or his sister, Subhan Allah, we are being told in this Hadith, that a man deserves to be respected, because of the fact that his daughter is your wife, that his sister is your wife, any a man deserves respect for this. But it's unfortunate how we consider in laws to be worthy of no respect, especially the family of the woman. It's as if they have no worth whatsoever. If they come over, that's a problem. And if they don't

01:03:45--> 01:04:34

give gifts, if they don't give hefty sums at the time of marriage, then they will forever be disrespected. We feel that they have no rights whatsoever. Any it's amazing in what kind of manners have we adopted from from which cultures This is an Islamic. So we see in this hadith that you know the person who gives you their daughter or their sister in marriage, they deserve respect them, the person who has any raised their son, and now that that son of theirs is your husband, he that that those parents deserve your respect. So in laws are not to be mistreated. They're not enemies, they're not to be disrespected. They are to be respected mursaleen desiring chastity layer on wasafi

01:04:34--> 01:04:59

hain, not unlawful sexual intercourse, when I would definitely have done or taking secret lovers. So even if a Muslim man intends to marry a Christian woman, for example, then this relationship should be established in the right way, in the legal way, and that is through Nika. Meaning don't just keep her as a girlfriend. No marry her properly, just because she's not a Muslim, and she doesn't know about her rights.

01:05:00--> 01:05:14

Then it doesn't mean that you take advantage of her know, give her her due rights and whoever denies the faith, his work has become worthless. And he in the hereafter will be among the losers. He will be a bankrupt person.

01:05:15--> 01:05:55

Will you who have believed when you rise to perform prayer, then wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows, and wipe your heads and wash your feet to the ankles. And if you are in a state of Geneva, then purify yourselves, meaning take a bath. But if you are ill, or on a journey, or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself, meaning you need to make will do to pray, or you have contacted women and do not find water if you need to make a Muslim now but you cannot find water, then seek clean Earth, meaning make diamo Howe and wipe over your faces and hands with it. Allah does not intend to make difficulty for you. And this is the reason why Allah has created these

01:05:55--> 01:06:38

Allah, Allah. Allah has legislated these allowances, but he intends to purify you. This is the reason why if you cannot make rudall then you should make tyerman because remember, yes will do purifies us physically. But it's not just physical purification will do is also a means of spiritual purification. It is a means of removing sin. This is why when a person cannot make will do, they're supposed to make to move because they am also will be a source of purification, if not physically, then certainly spiritually and Allah wishes to complete his favor upon you, that you may be grateful. So remember, Waldo is actually a blessing. It is not a chore. It is a blessing. It is a

01:06:38--> 01:06:58

means of purification for us. apparent and hidden the law had and the bathroom the external and the internal, and we'll do is a part of faith. We learn is better when we'll do perfecting will do meaning properly making will do is shot through a man. It is a big portion of a man it is a part of a man.

01:06:59--> 01:07:39

We also learned in a Hadees that none of you who uses water for ablution and renders his mouth sniffs up water and blows it but the sins of his face and his mouth and his nostrils fall out when he washes his face. As Allah has commanded him. The sins of his space fall out from the end of his beard with water than when he washes his forearms up to the elbows, the sins of his arms fall out along with water from his fingertips. And when he wipes his head, the sins of his head fallout from the points of his hair along with water and when he washes his feet up to the ankles, the sins of his feet fall out from his toes along with water and if he stands to pray and praises Allah and

01:07:39--> 01:08:24

glorifies him with what what is what He is worthy, and shows wholehearted devotion to Allah than his sins will depart, leaving him as innocent as he was on the day his mother gave birth to him sopran Allah, this is why make will do happily. Whenever it feels difficult to make will do remember that this will do is going to claim me it's going to draw me closer to Allah. And remember that on the Day of Judgment, the oma of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how will they be? We've heard that on the Day of Judgment. My the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said my people will come with bright faces, bright hands and feet. Why from the traces of Voodoo, so if any one of you can

01:08:24--> 01:09:09

lengthen his brightness, let him do that. And that is done by making Waldo more frequently, and making Budo perfectly with guru near Matala. Here they come and remember the favor of Allah upon you which favor of Islam and his covenant, which with which he bound you when you said we hear and we obey and fear Allah. Indeed Allah is Knowing of that within the trusts. So this shows us that we should remember the favors of Allah, in our heart, also, we should mention them in our tongue. And because of that gratitude, we should also work in obedience to Allah, we should also perform acts of worship happily, not as a burden. Will you have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah,

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

witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of people prevent you from from being just so this means that even an enmity be fair. So there is no room for extremism in Islam, be just that is nearer to righteousness and fear Allah, Indeed, Allah is acquainted with what you do. So we see in this ayah, that justice has been mentioned that when a person is just unfair, then this is closer to the COA, and this is something that will bring them closer to Allah on the Day of Judgment. Also, we learned in a Hadith, that the people who are just those who practice or other they will be on vulpix of light, to the right of Allah subhanaw taala, meaning they will be close to Allah Subhana Allah.

01:09:57--> 01:10:00

Allah has promised those who believe and

01:10:00--> 01:10:44

do righteous deeds that for them there is forgiveness and great reward. But those who disbelieve and deny our signs, those are the companions of hellfire. All you have believed, remember the favor of Allah upon you, when a people determined to extend their hands against you, some people wanted to harm you, but he withheld their hands from you. So they weren't able to harm you, a lot protected you and fear Allah and upon Allah let the believers rely, because Allah is the one who protects. And Allah had already taken a covenant from the children of Islam Eve, and we delegated from among them, 12 leaders, and Allah said, I am with you. If you establish prayer, and gives a cat, look at the

01:10:44--> 01:11:29

condition. If you want the help of Allah, then you have to do these two things, establish prayer, and gives a cat and believe in my messengers and support them. And Lord Allah, a goodly loan spend in the way of Allah. And why is it called a loan, it's called a loan because Allah will repay you, I will surely remove from you your misdeeds and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow, but whoever view disbelieves after that, has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way, such a person has gone astray for the man knuckle de meetha home. So for their breaking of the covenant, we see that again, their breaking of the covenant is met is mentioned what happened, when they violated

01:11:29--> 01:12:15

when they breach the covenant, we curse them and made their hearts hard, a soft a law. You see when a person breaks the promises that they make with Allah, what is that, like, for example, a person begins a good deed that he or Allah, I promise, I will do this. Now. I will do this for your sake. But then they stop, they discontinue, they go back, then this is a way of breaking the promise of breaking a promise with the law, you made that commitment with a law, not with people, not with yourself. This was a commitment you made with a law and then breaking that is going to have consequences. learner home. Think about it. If a person begins doing something good, right? They

01:12:15--> 01:13:02

they sign a contract, they say that they will do something with you or for you, and then they stop, then, of course, you're not going to appreciate that. So likewise, people who break their covenants with lala land now home, we curse them when janicoo casia their hearts, we made them hard. And what is the meaning of a hard heart that in the heart does not feel that love for Allah, that fear that reverence for Allah. It doesn't feel that humility before Allah than a person is okay with more acts of disobedience than a person is okay with committing sin after sin. And then nothing bothers them. Donna kulu casia would rather Billa what happens as a result of that they distort words from their

01:13:02--> 01:13:48

proper usages that they begin to miss. They begin to distort the meanings of the book of Allah also, why to suit their own desire. And they have forgotten a portion of that, of which they were reminded. They literally forget. They literally forget whether you're the biller, you see what the heart is heart, that a person is distanced from beneficial knowledge. And a person begins to forget the religion that he once upon a time knew when a person leaves, what is truly beneficial for them. And they forget what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded. They don't act upon the knowledge that they know, then their condition does not improve, it deteriorates. If it was true, they'll do a lot more

01:13:48--> 01:13:55

and who said, Sometimes a person forgets a portion of knowledge because of his sin. And then he recited this ayah

01:13:56--> 01:14:37

and you will still observe deceit among them except a few of them because they, they, they don't fear Allah. They just fear people, but pardon them and overlook their misdeeds. Indeed, Allah loves the doors of good. And from those who say we are Christians, we took their covenant, but they forgot a portion of that, of which they were reminded. So we caused among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. They also ignored, put aside, put behind their backs, left it in their past, what the things that Allah subhanaw taala had commanded, they forgot it, and forgetting it doesn't mean that literally a person does not recall forgetting it also means pretending as if one

01:14:37--> 01:14:59

doesn't know. And Allah is going to inform them about what they used to do. All people have the Scripture, there has come to you, our messenger, making clear to you much of what you used to conceal of the Scripture and overlooking much there has come to you from Allah, a light and a clear book. Yeah, the big law by which Allah guides

01:15:00--> 01:15:46

Who those who pursue his pleasure Manitoba ideal Bwana Who? The one who wants the pleasure of Allah. Then he needs to look at the book of Allah. He needs to see what the book of Allah says. Where you could see Buddha Salaam, to the ways of peace. When you read you mean Illuminati either No. And he brings them out from darkness into the light, be the new he by his permission, where the last little time was stopping him, and he guides them to a straight path. soprano la subida salam is mentioned over here that through the Quran, a person is guided to cebula salaam, what are simple SLM. Remember, a Salaam is Allah, it is one of the names of Allah. So if you want to be on the way of

01:15:46--> 01:16:32

Allah, the way that leads to Allah, Allah Who is the source of Salaam, then you have to follow the Quran, you have to open the book, you have to read what it says you have to reflect on what it's teaching, and you have to bring that into action. And if you want peace, if you want to be secure, you want to feel secure, then follow the Quran. Because the Quran guides to Subala Salaam, the ways that lead to Islam and Islam can also mean safety and security. But that is only possible with the delfy cavalla. Remember, when a person eagerly desires to please Allah soprano Tara and his tribes, he exerts effort, whether that effort is to read the book of Allah, listen to the book of Allah, try

01:16:32--> 01:17:20

to understand the book of Allah, then Allah guides this person, if the intention is good, that the yearning is sincere, that Allah subhanaw taala will guide this person and remember so Buddha Salah, the end of the destination of these ways, is Janna, which is data set out the home of security, we learn in a Hadees that when a servant remains busy in the pursuit of Allah's pleasure, and keep striving towards it, that Allah says to God, that my servant is in pursuit of my pleasure. So bear in mind, that my mercy is on him. So jabril says, May Allah's mercy be on so and so. And the carriers of the throne also say the same, and the angels around them say the same, and the

01:17:20--> 01:18:02

inhabitants of the seven heavens say the same, and then the statement is descended to the earth. So then people also say that May Allah's mercy be on so and so. Aloma join them in home? They have certainly disbelieved who say that Allah is Christ, the son of millennium, this is not a man this is COVID say, then who could prevent Allah at all, if he had intended to destroy Christ, the son of money, or his mother, or everyone on the earth, and to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between them, he creates what He wills, and Allah is over all things competent. But the Jews and the Christians say, No, no urbanite will law, national Aboriginal law,

01:18:02--> 01:18:44

what are HIPAA? Or they say, we are the children of Allah and His Beloved, say, then why does he punish you for your sins, rather, you are human beings from among those whom he has created, he forgives him, he wills and he punishes whom He wills and to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between them. And to him is the final destination. We see that the people of the book, they felt secure. They felt secure in their wrongdoing in their disobedience, and they felt secure from committing anything wrong, and such people are most at risk of falling into error. We learned that once a build up of the loved one who was praying, and he made

01:18:44--> 01:19:30

the wrong in his Salah, seeking refuge of Allah against nifa against hypocrisy. So after sada some people asked him that about though that May Allah forgive you, what have you got to do with hypocrisy? anyway? What Why are you asking Allah to protect you from hypocrisy? You're not a hypocrite about the de la de la hora and who said Allah homophone, Allah homophone, Allah homophone. Oh Allah your pardon, I beg your pardon, I beg your forgiveness. And then he said, He who is fearless of a trial is not protected against it. He who is fearless of a trial is not protected against it, by Allah, in a single moment, a person is put into trial, and that can turn him away

01:19:30--> 01:20:00

from his religion. So a person must always be afraid, between fear and hope. Always. Yes, we do good to earn less pleasure. And yes, we seek forgiveness for the mistakes that we make. But we should never feel that you know what, I am perfect. I am fine. I'm definitely going to gender. And you see the statement of the Jews and the Christians and the urban Allah who are Hebrew. We are the Beloved of Allah. Allah loves us and many people have

01:20:00--> 01:20:47

This assumption that you know what Allah loves me, they confuse between God's mercy and God's love. Remember God's mercy, or Rama is for everybody. And in that there is no discrimination in this world, Allah subhanaw taala affects everyone with his or her mind. But his love his muhabba is for those who obey Him, those who worship Him. So we should not just be in this, you know, fantasy, that you know what God loves me, God loves me and especially people think like this, when this when they have good things in life, they confuse mercy with love, we should have that good hope that in sha Allah, because I love Allah, and I strive to please Him, I hope that allowed to loves me, and we

01:20:47--> 01:21:27

should make the law that he or Allah, I asked you for your love along with me as Erica hubback I beg you for your love. But we should never assume and take this for granted that you know what? I am the Beloved of Allah. Because when a person has this, you know false concept, then they become arrogant, and when they become arrogant, then they feel it's okay for them to commit sin to cross the limits of Allah to compromise here and there to disregard some of the commands of Allah. Yeah, hello kita. All people have the Scripture, there has come to you, our messenger to make clear to you the religion, after a period of suspension of messengers, lest you say there came not to us any bringer

01:21:27--> 01:22:05

of good tidings or a warner. But there has come to you a bringer of good tidings and a warner and Allah is over all things competent, and mentioned Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When Musashi, Sam said to his people, that all my people remember the favor of Allah upon you, when he appointed among you prophets, and made you possessors and gave you that which he had not given anyone among the world's most artists that have reminded us people of the blessings of Allah, why, so that they would feel grateful, and they would feel that they would have that motivation. And that willingness to obey Allah to follow Allah commands. And then he gave them the command, he said, Oh,

01:22:05--> 01:22:44

my people enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned to you, and do not turn back from fighting in a lost cause, and thus become losers. Remember, the bunny is slow he, when they were set free from federal and across the sea, then eventually he they were not just to wander in the desert, they were supposed to go back to the place that they were originally from, and that was Palestine. So most artists and I'm told them to enter the city. But to enter the city, they would have to engage in some kind of battle. But they hesitated. They said, almost, indeed, within it is a people of tyrannical strength. And indeed, we will never enter it until they leave it. But if they leave it,

01:22:44--> 01:23:25

then we will enter we have no problem entering the city. But we have a big problem. In fighting with these people said to men, from those who fear to disobey upon whom Allah had bestowed favor, enter upon them through the gate, for when you have entered it, you will be predominant and upon Allah rely, if you should be believers, you see, when you want something good from Allah subhanaw taala, you have to take the first step, you take the first step, Allah will take 10 steps towards you. You have to do what is within your ability, and Allah will give you the strength, Allah will open the ways for you, Allah has helped will also come. But if you just sit in one place, and say, I'm not

01:23:25--> 01:24:07

going to do anything I want Allah's help first, then how can a person who does not help himself, expect the help of others because Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change what is within themselves. They said, almost, indeed, we will not enter it ever as long as they're within it. So go You and your Lord and fight in hoonah Cardon, indeed, we have remaining right here, a still fit of law. They said this to most artists around that we're not going to do anything. And this is yes, shocking to us. But sometimes, this is what we do as well, where we just want to believe in our heart and do nothing in our practical lives. We just want to intergender based on

01:24:07--> 01:24:49

what we say we claim to believe, we don't want to do anything. We don't want to slam to dictate how we eat, how we dress, how we speak, etc. We want to do whatever we want. And we say in our one acari tone, Musa alayhis salam said, My Lord, indeed I do not possess except myself and my brother. So part of us from the defiantly disobedient people will sorry, said I was also fed up now. He wanted to be distanced from such people. Allah subhanaw taala said that indeed, it is forbidden to them for 40 years in which they will wander throughout the land. So do not grieve over the defiantly disobedient people. Amazing. How could the person who does not even try except expect any aid if we

01:24:49--> 01:25:00

want to help? If we want good, then we have to take the first step and recite to them the story of Adams two sons in truth when they're both offered a sacrifice to a level

01:25:00--> 01:25:41

And it was accepted from one of them. Why? Because his intention was good, but was not accepted from the other because the intention was wrong. He said the latter I will surely kill you because he was angry and jealous, said the former Indeed Allah only accepts from the righteous will fear him. Subhana Allah, on the surface two people did the exact same action, but the action of one was accepted, and the action of the other was not accepted. What's the difference? The difference is the intention. One person's intention was sincere. He did what he did from a place of taqwa with the taqwa of Allah, there was the coin, the heart, the fear of a lion, the heart and there was the

01:25:41--> 01:26:27

quote, that was exhibited in the manner also. So remember, the acceptance of deeds is not based on the mere performance of deeds. Just because we have done something we should not take it for granted that you know what, this is accepted. No, the acceptance of deeds is based on the intention, the taqwa the fear of a law, with which it was done, let imbecile put in a duck. If you should raise your hand against me to kill me, I shall not raise my hand against you to kill you. Indeed, I fear Allah, Lord of the worlds Indeed, I want you to obtain there by my sin and your sin. So you will be among the companions of the Fire. And that is the recompense of wrongdoers. He's warning him and his

01:26:27--> 01:27:13

soul permitted him the murder of his brother, so he killed him and became among the losers, you see how one thing leads to another and it all begins with a corrupt intention, a bad intention, which leads them to jealousy, to hatred, to cut them, to murder, to oppression, loss upon loss. So what happened? Then Allah sent a curl searching in the ground, to show him how to hide the disgrace of his brother because this was the first depth. So he didn't even know what to do with the body. He said, Oh, woe to me. Have I failed to be like this curl and hide the body of my brother. And he became of the regretful but the regret alone did not save him. It was too late. Regret alone is not

01:27:13--> 01:28:00

enough. Remember, sometimes we feel horrible because of the wrong things that we have done. And we sit with that horrible feeling. No, move beyond that horrible feeling. do something with that regret. And that regret should turn into seeking forgiveness from Allah soprano without being humble before Allah. So anytime that you feel bad in your heart, about what you did, about what you said, about what you you know how you treated someone, or the fact that you neglected in your duty to Allah, then don't just loathe yourself. And don't just curse yourself that you know what, I'm so bad. No, saying I'm so bad is not enough. Doing something after that is what is required. We're not

01:28:00--> 01:28:47

what is expected from us is not that we just put ourselves down. That is not the goal that we put ourselves down, that we hate ourselves. No, that is not what is required of us. what is required of us is that when we feel that guilt, that shame, then we turn to Allah. We say y'all Allah forgive me, yeah, Allah, I am sorry, yeah, Allah I made a mistake, turn that guilt into humility. And so far, because of that, we decreed upon the children of Islam, that whoever kills a soul, unless for a soul, or for corruption done in the land, it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And this shows us the enormity of the crime of murder. And whoever saves one, it is as if he had saved mankind

01:28:47--> 01:29:22

eternally, sorry, and whoever saves one, it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. Saving one life is like saving all people. This is how sacred human life is. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proves that Indeed, many of them, even after that, throughout the land, were transgressors. Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and this waging war is specifically referring to disrupting peace in the land,

01:29:24--> 01:29:59

which is to witches by inviting war against a lion is messenger by committing acts of violence. And this is why the Roma have said that this is that this is that this refers to crimes such as highway robbery, or rape, or acts of aggression and violence. Then remember, for such violence, there is severe penalty. So those people who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive upon earth to cause corruption, they disrupt the

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

Peace in the land so people don't feel secure anymore. People remain in fear. A woman does not feel safe even stepping out of our house, going to the market to just fulfill basic needs any. So often it happens that children are not safe. Women are not safe forget about children and women, men are even not safe because of violent acts in society, then such violent people need to be punished very severely. What is the punishment for them? Allah says it is not, but that they'd be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides, or that the or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world, and for them in the Hereafter is a

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

great punishment, except for those who return repenting before you apprehend them and know that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Yeah, uh, you have levena amanu. All you who have believed fear Allah, Weber turbo la Hill was sila and seek the means of nearness to him and his tribe in his cause, that you may succeed, meaning, do things that will draw you closer to Allah, wa Alberto la Hill was sila. He do something to be close to Allah. And how is that any perform and acts of righteousness? You see, we do such thing lowly things at times, just to be in the good books of people, just so that people remember us. They don't forget about us, right? We do different favors

01:31:31--> 01:32:17

to the end. That's okay. That's fine. But we should think about, you know, if we truly love Allah, then how much are we trying to be close to him? What is it that draws us close to Allah? It is acts of righteousness. For example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a sweater to Oban. Salah is a means of closeness to Allah. Such the prostrating upgradeable may akuna Abdullah be here who has said the closest that a person can be to his Lord is when this person is in a state of such that the recitation of the Quran because remember, who are the people of Quran, whom Allah Allah, they are the people of Allah, they're his special servants, and then worshipping Allah at certain times,

01:32:17--> 01:33:01

because we are accountable may akuna, Rob boomin and ibdv jiofi laden acid, the closest that the Lord is to the servant is in the last portion of the night. So worshipping Allah at that time reciting Quran making the raw, so wilberto la univerzita, do something and seek the means of nearness to him. It's not just based on your wishes, you know, I love God, and I love to be close to him. wilberto who seek that, seek that connection, do something to have that connection. And this also means that when you're making the wrong, then before you make the wrong, seek, and we'll see the meaning perform righteous deeds before you make the law, so that your dog is accepted. Indeed,

01:33:01--> 01:33:44

those who disbelieve if they should have all that isn't the earth, and the like of it with it, by which to ransom themselves from the punishment of the Day of Resurrection, it will not be accepted from them, and for them is a painful punishment, they will wish to get out of the fire, but never are they to emerge there from and for them is an enduring punishment. As for the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed, as a determined as a determined punishment from Allah. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. Remember, the laws that allow us prime data has given in Islam, therefore reason, remember that there's some goals that

01:33:44--> 01:34:27

there are some mocassin, some objectives of the laws of the [???]tier. And one of them is the preservation of the wealth of people, that people's wealth, their property should be safe. So if anyone violates that, and, and harms people financially, by stealing, by committing theft, then there's going to be serious consequences for that. And remember, this the punishment for theft itself shows us that theft is a serious crime. And this is something we need to teach our children from a young age that theft is not allowed, because it is these habits, you know, that develop at a very young age. And then, and then when these people, even as they grow older, they don't have any

01:34:27--> 01:34:59

shame in taking the property of others. Remember, when a person commits theft, then he man leaves them at that time. So this is not just a sin against people. This is a sin against Allah. But whoever repents after his wrongdoing, and remember doba is not just, you know, feeling guilt and seeking forgiveness after Toba is also with us Lucha and he and he reforms and part of that reform is to return the stolen option.

01:35:00--> 01:35:16

Part of that reform is to reform oneself. So a person makes that intention that I'm not going to back to the I'm not going back to the same crime again. Then Indeed, Allah will turn to Him in forgiveness. Indeed Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

01:35:18--> 01:36:00

This is also so beautiful. You see if someone has ever committed something wrong against us, we never forgive them. We always remember their wrongdoing, even if it was committed, like 20 years ago and we will pass on that resentment to our children who will grow up with that resentment and they will keep that resentment, right. We don't allow. We don't allow ourselves to forgive. And we should remember that if Allah forgives people for in the La Jolla tube or LA in the la foto Rahim if Allah forgives, then who are we? What are we? Why do we think of ourselves as such a big deal that we think we cannot forgive people? Do you not know that to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens

01:36:00--> 01:36:42

and the earth. He punishes whom He wills and forgives whom He wills and Allah is over all things competent, will messenger let them not grieve you who hasten into disbelief of those who say, we believe with their mounts, but their hearts believe not, these are the hypocrites, and from among the Jews, they're avid listeners to falsehood listening to another people who have not come to you. Meaning they only come to spife. For them, they distort words beyond their proper usages, saying, if you are given this, take it but if you are not given it, then beware meaning only if the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suit you then take them and if they don't suit you, then

01:36:42--> 01:37:26

don't take them. This is not servitude. Remember, we should be pleased with all of the commands of Allah, all of his decrees all of his decisions, whether we find them easy or hard, but he for whom Allah intends fitna, never will you possess power to do for him a thing against Allah. Those are the ones for whom Allah does not intend to purify their hearts, for them in this world is a disgrace, and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment. And remember, if the heart is not pure, if the heart is not cleaned, then what will become of such a person? Allah does not intend to purify the hearts of such people. But his lack of a person depends on the Islam, the correctness of their

01:37:26--> 01:37:44

heart, some Marina del Caribe, a calluna Desert, they are avid listeners to falsehood devours of what is unlawful? You see, just as we should not feed our bodies impure foods, we should not feed our ears falsehood either.

01:37:45--> 01:38:29

We're very particular about how long food but we're not that particular about what we're watching what we're listening to, we will make it such a big deal if we find out that there is a Muslim who drinks alcohol and yes, it is a big deal. We will condemn them and we will shame them and we will go to any length in order to you know oppose their behavior. We need to really reflect on ourselves. Okay, we may not be drinking alcohol, but we need to check what is going into our ears. What kind of conversations do we participate in? Do we listen to backbiting? Do we listen to vulgar songs do we listen to you know sounds that are less proud? There's not a lot that there's not like so we have to

01:38:29--> 01:39:06

be careful about what we feed our bodies, what we feed our hearts and what we feed our wallets. We have to be concerned about how we are earning money because a calluna list cert cert is mentioned over here. unlawful wealth, and unlawful wealth is called search because it destroys good deeds it obliterates them, it ruins a person's dignity. We learned a hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that oh people have shyness of Allah. That is the human Allahu hepple higher have shyness of Allah the way he deserves that you should have shyness.

01:39:08--> 01:39:52

So the companion said that we are shy of Allah. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this is not what I mean. how unhappy to have shyness of a love the way he deserves, is that you guard the head and what it contains, and that you guard the stomach and what it contains, and that you remember death and the deterioration the disintegration of bones. Meaning having shyness of Allah means that you guard what your head contains, meaning you guard your eyes, your ears, your mouth, have sharp have shyness of Allah, you guard the stomach and what it contains, meaning Be careful of what you put in your stomach, but only lawful food. And remember the stomach doesn't just

01:39:52--> 01:40:00

refer to the button the part where the food goes, but also the torso which includes any the primary

01:40:00--> 01:40:46

part also the hands the feet have shyness of a law. So, summer owner and Kevin a calluna and asserts a loss pensado says about such people for injure uhq for colombina, who are available on home, if they come to you, then judge between them or turn away from them. And if you turn away from them, never will they harm you at all. And if you judge judge between them with justice, Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly. But how is it that they come to you for judgment, while they have the law, in which is the judgment of Allah, then the turn away, even after that, but those are not in fact, believers, indeed, We sent down to tota, in which was the guidance and light in which was

01:40:46--> 01:41:29

guidance and light, the prophets who submitted to Allah, judged by it for the Jews, as did the rabbis and the scholars, by that which they were interested of the Scripture of Allah, and they were witnesses there too. So do not fear the people, but fear me and do not exchange my verses for a small price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, then it is those who are the disbelievers. And we ordained for them they're in a life for life and eye for an eye, a nose for a nose and ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth and for wounds is legal retribution. So remember this, there is a sauce for wounding someone for injuring someone. So for example, if a person breaks the

01:41:29--> 01:42:14

tooth of another, then the sauce is that the person who broke the tooth on the other hand, his tooth will be broken in retaliation, this is the law of loss. But then it is mentioned that whoever forgives, then that is better. And remember, that when apart when a person pardons another, no servant pardons and injustice, except that Allah will increase him in honor because of that, on the day of judgment. So yes, we have the sauce is allowed. pardoning forgiving is something better, and it will be a source of honor for a person not just in this life, but also on the Day of Judgment. And we sent following in their footsteps, he saw the son of money on early he said on confirming

01:42:14--> 01:42:52

that which came before him in the total, and we gave him the MG, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which proceeded it of the law as guidance and instruction for the righteous. And let the people have the gene judged by what Allah has revealed there and, and whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient. You see the people of the book, what they would do is that if ever they did not want to follow the law, their scripture, they would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam expecting that perhaps his judgment will be easier, it will be according to our desires. So it is being said, basically, that here you are

01:42:52--> 01:43:09

denying the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and yet you come to him for judgment, you deny him because you say you are the People of the Scripture, while you have the Scripture, why don't you follow it. So the fact is that these people didn't really believe they actually followed their own desires.

01:43:10--> 01:43:52

And we see that when people disregard the law of Allah, that we learn in Hades, that poverty will spread among them in another narration, there will be strife between them. So the law that Allah has revealed in the Quran, that is to be followed, not ignored. And we have revealed to you a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the book in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture, and as a criterion over it, so judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. to each of you. We prescribed a law and a method had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation, but he intended to test you in

01:43:52--> 01:44:37

what he has given you. So raised to all that is good, faster vehicle Hi, Rod. You see, there are some people who use the law to follow their desire so they pick and choose. And then there's other people who use the law, to, to rush in good work to accumulate good deeds to Allah is your return altogether. And he will then inform you concerning that over which you use to defer and judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them less they tempt you away from some of what Allah has revealed to you. And if they turn away, then know that Allah only intends to afflict them with some of their own sins. And indeed, many among the

01:44:37--> 01:44:59

people are defiantly disobedient. So we've seen this ayah very clearly the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told what after who, who or whom do not follow their desires. So remember, following one's own desire or the desires of people. This is a means of misguidance for hoekman Jia helia Tia boo Hoon, then is it the judgment of the time of ignorance they see

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

But who is better than Allah in judgment? For people who are certain in faith? What is ignorance? What is joy Hillier? It refers to the era prior to Islam. So dragalia is the opposite of Islam. What is the law of Allah? That is guidance? It is light, it is knowledge, and anything that contradicts the law of a law that opposes the law of a law that goes against it, then that is your helliya that is darkness and ignorance. Yeah, uh, you Halina Ave, all you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies, they're in fact, allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you than indeed he is one of them. Indeed, Allah guides, not the wrongdoing people. You see

01:45:46--> 01:46:25

the hypocrites clung to their previous alliances with the people of the book, even though the People of the Book had declared their open enmity to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So it is said to the Muslims, that are you going to take the Prophet as your enemy? Meaning if you're going to keep your alliances with the people of the book, who have declared war against the Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam? Then what are you doing? You are siding with those who are the enemy to the messenger? Are you going to be an enemy to your own messenger? So you see those in whose hearts is disease, hastening into association with them, saying, we are afraid of misfortune may strike us

01:46:25--> 01:47:10

meaning we have to keep those alliances for our own safety, but perhaps Allah will bring conquest or a decision from him, and they will become over what they have been concealing within themselves, regretful and those who believe will say, Are these the ones who swore by Allah, their strongest old that indeed they were with you? their deeds have become worthless, and they have become losers? Yeah, you're Latina Amano, oh, you will have believed whoever Have you should revert from his religion, meaning if there's any Muslim who is thinking about leaving Islam, then you know what, go ahead. But remember, for Sophia de la who become Allah will bring forth of people meeting in your

01:47:10--> 01:47:24

place, Allah will bring another people. The fact is that your Islam is a favor to nobody but you, Allah does not need you. And so if you leave Islam, you cannot cause any harm to Allah.

01:47:25--> 01:48:17

You will only cause harm to yourself and Allah will replace you with someone else. You hit boom, when you hit buena. These people, Allah will love them, and they will love him. He will love you have boom he will love them when you have buena who and they will love him. This is so beautiful. You see, Allah loves his righteous servants, and when his righteous servants also love him. This is such a beautiful relationship. Because love is beautiful when it is reciprocated. All people claim to love Allah. But what matters is if Allah loves them in return, if Allah accepts their good deeds, and remember, that he man when a person has faith, this is a sign that Allah subhanaw taala loves

01:48:17--> 01:49:04

them in a Hadees we learned that in the law, ut mallamma, you hibou woman law, your hibou that Allah gives wealth to those whom he loves, and also those whom he does not love. What are you till he man at 11 but he does not give a man except to the one whom he loves. So when Allah loves a servant, he gives him a man, a lung gives him faith. So be grateful for the blessing of a man. This is a privilege. This is a gift and do not take it for granted. Do not think that you're doing anyone a favor. In fact, favor has been done to you. Those who are humble toward the believers, they care for one another powerful against the disbelievers. They strive in the cause of Allah and do not fear the

01:49:04--> 01:49:52

blame of a critic confident that is the favor of Allah, He bestows it upon whom He wills and Allah is all encompassing and knowing your ally is none but Allah and therefore His Messenger and those who have believed those who established prayer and gives a car and they bow in worship, their obedient to Allah, and whoever is an ally of and whoever is an ally of Allah and His messenger and those who have believed indeed the party of a law, they will be predominant. Yeah, you have Latina Avenue, or you will have believed. Take not those who have taken your religion in ridicule and amusement among the ones who are given the Scripture before you, nor the disbelievers as allies.

01:49:52--> 01:49:59

Someone who makes fun of your religion who ridiculed your religion. They're not a friend, so don't be deceived by them.

01:50:00--> 01:50:47

Fear Allah, if you should truly be believers, what even data it is solid, and when you call, and when you call to prayer, they take it in ridicule and amusement. Why? That is because there are people who do not use reason, meaning they make fun of the other than you see a reasonable person, an intelligent person does not make fun of others. He doesn't find mockery of others entertaining at all. When musasa was asked by his people, are you joking with us? Are you making fun of us, he said, are the biLlahi and akuna Minal Jay Z. I seek Allah's protection lest I be of those who are ignorant. This is a sign of being unintelligent, that a person has fun by making fun of others by

01:50:47--> 01:50:59

mocking them. Remember, when the event is made, we should listen attentively, we should respond, we should not make fun of the event. Sometimes it happens that the person who is making the event you know, they they sound

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

strange, their voice becomes too shrieky, etc. No, focus on the words that are being said.

01:51:08--> 01:51:48

We don't in a hadith either Samaritan or NIDA for kulu bislama yaku. I think that when you hear the other than say, what the oven says, meaning respond to the event, and then after that make the raw, say, oh, people at the Scripture, do you resent us except for the fact that we have believed in Allah? Why do you make fun of us? Is it because we believe in Allah, and what was revealed to us and what was revealed before and because most of you are defiantly disobedient. So remember, if someone who marks at you, it doesn't mean that there's a problem with you, there's actually a problem with them. Say, shall I inform you of what is worse than that as penalty from Allah, it is that of those

01:51:48--> 01:52:28

who Allah has cursed, and with whom he became angry and made of them, apes and pigs and slaves of thought, those are worse in position, and further astray from the sound way. And when they come to you, they say we believe, but they have entered with disbelief, and they have certainly left with it. And Allah is most knowing of what they were concealing, and you see many of them hastening into sin and aggression, and the devouring of what is unlawful, how wretched is what they have been doing. Why do the rabbis and religious scholars not forbid them from saying what is sinful and devouring what is unlawful? You see over here, the religious color is of the Jews and Christians are

01:52:28--> 01:53:07

the rabbi, the rabbis, the rabbis of the Al Khattab, they're being condemned, that you know the Scripture, you know the law, yet you don't stop people from doing what is wrong. And this is a responsibility of the people of knowledge, that when people are doing something wrong, that stop them when people are behaving ignorantly then teach them. Knowledge is not just something of privilege, something that you know, you're proud over that you have a degree, you have a certification and you just hang that handout on your wall and you're proud of it. No knowledge is supposed to be taught. It's supposed to be disseminated so that people come out of darkness, how

01:53:07--> 01:53:47

wretched is what they have been practicing. So stop people from the wrongs that they're doing. And a lot of times people are doing wrong simply because they don't know. People are not doing right because simply they don't know. And sometimes we come up with things like you know what, to each their own. No, we don't in our heads, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, When sin is done in the earth, He who is present there and disapproves of it will be considered as though he was not present. But he who is not present and approves of it will be considered as though he was present as though he was a participant. So when you approve of a sin, then you are also guilty of it. So do

01:53:47--> 01:54:32

something, voice, your concern, at least express the truth in whatever way that you can. But please be wise, be careful, don't be aggressive, don't be arrogant, and don't start, you know, passing judgment on people commanding what is right for bidding what is wrong does not mean passing judgment. That Oh, you know what? You're going to help? No, commanding what is right, forbidding what is evil means informing people that you know what this is not right. This is actually against the law of Allah. This is something that is not permissible. And once you have done your part, that is sufficient, but please, be wise, be courteous. Observe the prophetic o'clock. Our problem is that

01:54:32--> 01:54:41

we become very aggressive. When we do a little bit more often the hidden mode will become very rude. very harsh, we start condemning people to eternal damnation.

01:54:42--> 01:54:59

We start belittling them. And this is the reason why a lot of times people don't want to be told. They say Mind your own business. And don't tell me and this is something we need to be careful of, even online, but I would say especially online, we see a post and immediately we start saying this is how long

01:55:00--> 01:55:46

Immediately we don't know them. And we start sending messages to people that you know what this is. This is something that is, you know how if you're saying something is how long then you better present an evidence, and you better do it with courtesy. You better do it in a nice way in the way that the prophets did. We'll call it area hoodoo. Your doula Hema Lula, and the Jews say, the hand of Allah is chained, chained are their hands and cursed are they for what they say. Rather, both his hands are our extended belly Adele, who mobis who taught and he spends, however, he will think about it. How much does Allah subhanaw taala give to his servants? every single moment, Allah subhanaw

01:55:46--> 01:56:34

taala is showering his blessings upon His servants. Yet, there are some among people who have the audacity to say that Allah is stingy as the federal law. How tolerant is a law though? How forbearing a lot is in a healthy sweetener. No one is more patient than Allah. They claim he has a son, and yet and they attribute a partner to him. And yet He grants them security. He protects them. He provides them and he gives them blessings. So proper law. And this is something we need to think about. That if people do not spare God, if they don't spare a law, do you think they will spare you and I and that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in

01:56:34--> 01:57:16

transgression and disbelief. And we have cast among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war against you, Allah extinguished it, Allah protected you and this tribe throughout the land causing corruption, and Allah does not like corrupters and if only the People of the Scripture had believed and feared Allah, we would have removed from them their misdeeds and admitted them to Gardens of Pleasure, soprano law. After all this wrongdoing, Allah still invites them to repent. Yes, Allah invites everybody to repent. Remember, in Hades, we learned that if you were to commit sin, until your sins reached the heaven,

01:57:16--> 01:58:00

the sky, then you were to repent, your repentance would be accepted. And if only they upheld the law of the total, how is it that the law of the Scripture is upheld, that a person learns it, and then he acts upon it, if they had upheld the law, the tota and the MG, and what has been revealed to them from their Lord, meaning the Quran, they would have consumed provision from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them are a moderate community, but many of them evil is that which they do supine Allah. This is the benefit of following the book of Allah, of learning the book of Allah and following it, what that a person will then eat from above and from below, meaning they will be

01:58:00--> 01:58:47

showered with the blessings of Allah. Allah will open the doors of His provision upon them. In our best said this is rain from above, and vegetation from the earth because we may tequila Hydra Allahu Maharaja, where the cumin Hazel as the SIP, whoever fears Allah, Allah creates a way out for him and provides him from where he does not even expect so much provision that a person cannot even imagine. But a lot of times when it comes to following the Quran, you know, we have this fear we have FOMO we fear that we're not going to be able to enjoy good things in life. Now, you obey Allah. And remember sustenance comes from Allah. And if you please Him, if you become His Beloved, and Allah loves you,

01:58:47--> 01:59:24

then do you think he is going to deprive you? And remember learning the deen learning sacred knowledge, in fact, opens the doors of provision for a person, we learn in their heads that there were two brothers during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And one of them used to come to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in order to learn and the other would work meaning he had some business. So the man the brother who would work he came to the Prophet sallallahu urges them and complained that you know what my brother comes here every day and he doesn't come to work with me. And you know, he should work with me so we should have more wealth, etc. And the Prophet sallallahu

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

alayhi wa sallam said, perhaps you are provided because of him, that perhaps because of the blessing of your brother, learning, sacred knowledge, you are also being provided. So remember, we need to study the book of Allah, and we also need to implement it and then the good things in life will be opened up to us. We learned that some of us sitting said that we got ourselves busy with the Quran, and blessings and good things in the world enveloped us. We learn a Buddha used to say that

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

Because of the recitation of the Quran, a house becomes vast for its inhabitants. The angels are present in it, the devils leave it and its goodness increases and when on is not recited in a house, that it becomes constricted for its inhabitants, the angels Leave it, the devils are present in it, and it's goodness is decreased. Yeah, uh, you have Rasool, Allah messenger announced that which has been revealed to you convey what has been revealed to you from your Lord. And if you do not, then you have not, then you have not conveyed his message. And Allah will protect you from the people. Indeed, Allah does not guide the disbelieving people. So remember, everything that the Prophet

02:00:38--> 02:01:16

sallallahu already have said on top, whether it is in the form of Quran, the verses of the Quran, which are recited, or the teachings that he gave meaning Hadees all of that is based on revelation. So we have to take both, say, all people have the Scripture, you're standing on nothing until you uphold the law, the total the gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord, and that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief, so do not grieve over the disbelieving people. Indeed, those who have believed meaning in the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, and those before Him, who were Jews, or sabians, are Christians,

02:01:16--> 02:01:54

those among them who believed in Allah and the Last Day ended righteousness, no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve? We had already taken the covenant of the children of Islam Eve, and had sent to them messengers, whenever there came to them a messenger with what their souls did not desire, a party of messengers they denied, and another party they killed, and they thought there would be no resulting punishment. So they became blind and deaf, then a lot turn to them in forgiveness, he gave them another chance because Allah is a tool well, then again, many of them became blind and deaf, as if they heard nothing. They saw nothing. They played ignorant, and Allah

02:01:54--> 02:02:33

is seeing of what they do. They have certainly disbelieved who say, Allah is the Messiah, the Son of Mary, while the Messiah has said, Oh children of Islam, he worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord, indeed he who associates others with Allah, Allah has forbidden him paradise and his refuge as the fire and there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers. They have certainly disbelieved who say Allah is the third of three. And there is no god except one. This is the reality. And if they do not desist from what they're saying, they will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment of Elijah to Buddha in law, so will they not repent to Allah? After learning all this?

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

Will they not make Toba? wastop Fiona and seek His forgiveness? Why do they hesitate? Do they feel that Allah will not?

02:02:42--> 02:02:44

Do they feel that Allah will not forgive them?

02:02:46--> 02:03:16

Because we're la hola foto Rahim and allies Forgiving and Merciful. You see, sometimes we hesitate saying sorry to people, because we know that they will not accept our apology. So we are afraid to further humiliate ourselves. But don't think like that, when you have to seek forgiveness from Allah. Allah loves to forgive. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said or Isha. If you ever go close to a sin, then seek forgiveness because regret and seeking forgiveness are repentance.

02:03:17--> 02:04:01

The Messiah son of Miriam was not but a messenger. Other messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth, sleep deca, they both used to eat food. Look at how we make clear to them the signs, then look how they are diluted. Money I'm already a Santa is praised over here she's called slick, deca. Remember, the opinion is a very high station. It is a station after that of prophethood and it is for men and for women. slubby is a person who is habitually truthful, who always speaks the truth. So there is a person who is unquestionably believing, ever confirming, attesting to and believing in the truth that it does leak. So his mother was a Siddiqa. And we

02:04:01--> 02:04:03

should also be of those who speak the truth.

02:04:04--> 02:04:45

And yet, we see that the bunny is slightly ill did not spare her. They accused her of Xena say, Do you worship besides Allah, that which holds for you know power of harm or benefit? While it is Allah who is the hearing the knowing, say, oh People of the Scripture, do not exceed limits in your religion beyond the truth, and do not follow the inclinations of people who had gone astray before and misled many and have strayed from the soundness of the way. Don't change your religion, in imitation of others. Cursed were those who disbelieved among the children of Islam, by the tongue of the Buddha and of the Son of money, and that was because they disobeyed and have bitterly

02:04:45--> 02:04:59

transgressed. Imagine these prophets curse their own people, how much these people must have harassed them. They used to not prevent one another from wrongdoing that they did, how wretched was how wretched was that?

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

Which they were doing. So by not forbidding evil, they became equally guilty. You see many of them becoming allies of those who have disbelieved. How wretched is that which they have put forth for themselves, in that Allah has become angry with them, and in the punishment, they will abide eternally. And if they had believed in Allah and the Prophet, and in what was revealed to him, they would not have taken them as allies, but many of them are defiantly disobedient, you will surely find the most intense of the people and animosity toward the believers to be the Jews and those who associate others with Allah, the polytheists and you will find the nearest of them and affection to

02:05:39--> 02:06:27

the believers, those who say we are Christians. Why, why the difference? That is because among them are priests and monks, and because they are not arrogant. So you see arrogance. This is the root cause of a lot of evil. It is arrogance that does not allow us to forgive people. It is arrogance that makes us stubborn on our wrong. It is arrogance that prevents us from repenting to Allah subhanaw taala. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to be humble servants to be lost in hona failure in those who accept the impact of knowledge so that they fear Allah, they're humble with the creation, and they do not belittle people. And they also don't don't disregard the honor

02:06:27--> 02:06:40

that Allah subhanaw taala has given people love them, I mean, just below head on Highlands so panicle level Moby handig eyeshadow La ilaha illa Anta esto Furukawa a todo la Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
