Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh who

00:00:13--> 00:01:05

are other Billahi min ash shape line of latine Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool al Karim. Rubbish La Jolla sadi way acidity, Emery wash Luna rook Delta melissani Yakubu Kali Allahu Matthew Colby was a deadly sin he was sued, so Hema took all the menial, but I mean, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah has given an example of the straight path. And on the two sides of this path, there are two walls containing doorways. On these doorways, there are curtains that are lowered down at the gate of this path, there is a caller saying all people come and enter the straight path all together and do not get diverted. And another caller is

00:01:05--> 00:01:58

calling from the path. So when a person wants to open the curtain on any of these doors, he says water you do not open it, for if you open it, you will enter it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained that the path is Islam. The two walls are the set limits of Allah the Most High and the open doors are the prohibitions set by Allah the Most High. That color at the gate of the path is the Quran. It is the book of Allah. And the color on the path is Allah admonition in the heart of every Muslim. So we see in this Hadees the Quran the role that the Quran plays in our lives, that, that when a person stays connected with the book of Allah, when a person keeps learning about the

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

book of Allah, they keep reciting it, they keep studying it, then the Quran serves as a reminder, the Quran is a means of protecting ourselves from falling into sin. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to remember the call of the Quran Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Jews number 810 n Nanana zelner la human mela ekata What can lemahieu motor one oh and Nanana zelner la himal Mela equatorward can lemahieu Mota wa Hashanah la him coalition in Pula ma cannoli minnow Illa. sha Allah, while our kin acara homea Jihad Loon. And even if we had sent down to them, the angels and the dead spoke to them of it. And we gathered together everything which they demand in front of them, they would still not

00:02:58--> 00:03:51

believe, unless Allah should will, but most of them have that are ignorant. The fact is that ignorance becomes an obstacle in the path of guidance. Remember, knowledge alone is not enough. Intellectual reasoning alone is not enough to obtain guidance, because at times a person's own biases, their arrogance, which is another form of ignorance prevents them from seeing the truth. And this was the problem with the people of Makkah. It wasn't that they were not shown any miracles which they demanded. It wasn't that the message of the Quran was unknown to them, no, they knew, but they chose to remain ignorant despite knowledge. Why? Because the ignorance of pride and their

00:03:51--> 00:04:43

desires prevented them. They chose their Hauer which is desires over houda, which is guidance. And thus we have made for every prophet and enemy, devils for mankind and jinn. inspiring to one another decorative speech in delusion. But if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it. So leave them and that which they invent. Allah subhanaw taala comforts His Messenger, that just there are enemies for you, who deny your message, who cooperate with one another in your opposition, then this has always been the case. But if you break down the criticism of the critics, it is nothing but zoku file kolu law, it is nothing but decorated words fancy language by which the weak minded easily get

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

affected. But in reality, what they say is simply a play on words. It is not solid facts. In fact, many times it is lies that are decorated with fancy words. So this seemed believable. So no matter how

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

frightening their criticism may seem, no matter how far and wide their lies may be, how hateful their words are. Remember, they're just words so do not fear them. And people who oppose the truth this way are in fact devils because Allah says that we have made for every prophet and enemy, devils for mankind and jinn, such people are shall clean. Why? Because they're doing the work of shape on how by misleading themselves and misleading the naive Katahdin which I had said that the way there are devils among the jinn, there are also devils among mankind. Malik Eben dinar said that the devils among mankind are actually more difficult for me than the devils among the gene. Because when

00:05:49--> 00:06:20

I say our the villa, the devil among the jinn goes away, but the human devil openly comes before me and tries to drag me into sin. Think about Abu Talib, when he was close to his death, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was urging him to c'est la Ilaha in the law. What happened to Cheltenham came abou Jehan, and Abdullah bin omiya. And they kept on urging, I will tell you, to not leave the religion of his forefathers, and he died upon that.

00:06:21--> 00:07:10

And it is so the hearts of those who disbelieve in the hereafter will incline toward it, and that they will be satisfied with it, and that they will commit that which they are committing. So yes, there are people who are very gullible out there who get easily affected by decorated liars, they believe them, and they are happy with them. Why? It's not because they're unintelligent, it's because the lies allow them to carry on as they are. You see, the truth is sometimes very bitter. It requires that people make changes in their lives, the people of Makkah understood the truth of the message of the hate, but they did not want to change their lives. And, for example, even today, when

00:07:10--> 00:07:54

it comes to, for instance, current the current environmental problems in the world, there are people who simply don't want to believe the facts. So what will they do? They will distort the facts. Why? Because accepting those facts means that they have to change something about themselves, which they don't want to do. And just like that, yes, there are many lies out there about the Quran, that this is a book that teaches hate, or about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But why do people choose to believe those lies? Is it because they're foolish? Is it because they're unintelligent? No, because when they reject the Koran when they reject the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that

00:07:54--> 00:08:26

allows them to carry on as they are to keep on doing what they're already doing. And the majority of the people would rather follow their desire than follow guidance. But there are people who don't get affected by such lies, who use their reason, who are genuinely curious, who seek the truth. And when a person is sincere in their quest for truth, then Allah subhanaw taala allows them to see past all of the lies that are spread about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or about the Quran, we learn about the failure

00:08:28--> 00:09:08

to fail urban farmer who was visiting Makkah when the enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam warned him not to listen to the magician to the sourcer. So to fail the Longhorn who initially plugged his ears so that he would not even accidentally listen to the magic of the magician, meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But then, later on, he thought that well, I'm an intelligent men, I can discern between what is right and what is not. So he gave it a chance. He went and listened to the Quran from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And upon contemplation, when he allowed himself to look past his judgment, to look past his bias, he was able

00:09:08--> 00:09:55

to see the truth and embrace it. So what is the lesson in these verses that do not fear, the hatred that people spew about the Koran and about Islam? About the truth? Yes, you might fear that their lies are causing a lot of damage and the fact is that they are causing damage, but Allah subhanaw taala still guides to the truth. Those who are willing to seek the truth of Ohio law he evidently hackerman Well, who am levy en de la la como el kita mufa Sala, se, then is it other than Allah, I should seek as Judge to tell me what is right and what is not. While it is he who has revealed to you the book explained in detail, meaning you want me to leave the hole on and you want me to see

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

guidance from something else, and those to whom we previously gave the script

00:10:00--> 00:10:50

Know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters. So remember Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created everything. He is the one who owns everything, and he is the one who gets to decide what human beings should do and what they should not do. What Talmud Kalima Torah because say the time con where Abdullah and the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice, meaning the word of Allah is complete. It is perfect. It is based on absolute truth, and it is fair lambu Banque de la Nikolay Mati, there is none that can alter his words, meaning the Quran is unchangeable, it is unalterable, why, because only what is imperfect needs to be changed

00:10:50--> 00:11:41

and revised. And the longer and only what is imperfect, no longer remains relevant. And as a result of that it needs to be changed and revised. But the Quran is based on truth, on ultimate truth, and it is relevant for all people for all times, therefore, it does not need to be changed at all. Well, who was Sammy or Eileen, and he is the hearing the knowing what into their UC Thurman field audibly, you'll be Luke and Sabine in law. And if you obey most of those upon the earth, they will mislead you from the way of Allah, meaning the trend, the practice of the majority is not an evidence. There was a time when the majority of the people believed that the Earth was flat. The majority of the

00:11:41--> 00:12:27

people do not follow in, they follow their desire or they follow as it is mentioned over here yet to be Oona a loved one, they follow not except assumption, meaning based on simply what they have seen. And as a result of that, what they have assumed and they are not but falsifying. So the person who wishes to be on guidance, they should hold on to the Quran firmly, they should not take the practice of the majority as an evidence that because everybody does this, I should also do that or because nobody does this. I should also not do that. No, an intelligent person follows facts in not a burqa who are Loma Linda or unsavoury Lee. Indeed your Lord is most knowing of who strays from his way.

00:12:28--> 00:13:17

Well, who RLM will be the dean and he is the most knowing of the rightly guided, so eat of that meat upon which the name of Allah has been mentioned. If you are believers in his verses, you see the enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the people of Mecca, they would object that you eat what you slaughter yourself, but you don't eat what God kills meaning carrion. This was their, you know, logical fallacy. And remember that what is slaughtered is very different from what dies out of sickness or fall. Because an animal that dies because of a violent blow, for example, any it's it hasn't been slaughtered properly. And so, if a person were to eat a dead, it you know, it

00:13:17--> 00:14:01

carrying a body that is already decaying, then that that food will not be beneficial for a person in fact, it can be quite harmful. So it is mentioned over here that you should eat of that meat upon which the name of Allah has been mentioned. And why should you not eat of that upon which the name of Allah has been mentioned? While he has explained in detail to you what he has forbidden you, meaning Allah subhanaw taala has given us the entire law of what is Hillel? What is her mom? He has made all of that clear. So now what are you going to do? Just recite those verses and seek blessing through the words know you're supposed to follow the law that is contained within those words,

00:14:02--> 00:14:51

accepting that to which you are compelled, meaning when a person is compelled, and that is a different situation? And indeed, do many lead others astray through their own inclinations without any knowledge. Indeed, your Lord He is most knowing of the transgressors. So we see over here that following one's desires is a means of misguidance and following the command of a lion is messenger, that is guidance, whether law hero is me, well Tina, and leave what is a parent of sin and what is concealed. They're off, leave all sins, whether they are a parent or they are concealed, whether they are public or they are private. You see an example of a public a law his sin is for instance, a

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

person taunts another ridiculed another on their face and backbiting. A person is a form of

00:15:00--> 00:15:49

A hidden See, or a private sin. And remember, both are wrong. Because sometimes we justify backbiting by saying that you know what I can say to this person on their face? Well, just because you have the audacity to say hurtful words to someone, it doesn't mean that that is free of saying, No way lonely, cuddly houmas at a lumada and that includes both saying rude, harsh things to people on their face or behind their back. So whether la de la is me, what about Lena leave what is apparent of sin? And what is concealed? They're off. Why? Because in the leadin, a xe boondall isn't safe. Zone habima Can we Jaco telefoon Indeed, those who earn blamed for sin will be recompensed for

00:15:49--> 00:16:25

that which they use to commit. So remember, any sin, whether it is in words, or it is an actions, even an illicit relationship, whether it is made public, or it is kept private, we should leave all wrong things. Why? Because ultimately, our matter is with Allah subhanaw taala. And both our apparent and hidden, our public and private is known to Allah, hiding from people is not the goal, leaving the sin is the goal. Because if it is not left, then there are consequences.

00:16:26--> 00:17:15

One at pulumi manlam Youth carisma, La Jolla, la we're in the hula Fisk, and do not eat of that upon which the name of Allah has not been mentioned, when at the time of slaughter. Why, for Indeed, it is grave disobedience. This is so clear. And indeed do the devils inspire their allies, among men to dispute with you. And if you were to obey them, indeed, you would be associators remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also made it very clear, that we should only eat of that animal whose blood is made to flow, meaning it is slaughtered. And at the time of slaughter, the name of Allah was mentioned on it, only that meat is permissible, and the food on which the name of Allah is

00:17:15--> 00:17:51

not taken, then remember that food is actually for shaitan. In a narration, we learn that upon at least set to Allah that all night you have made the provision of the of every creature a clear to it. So what is for me, and it was mentioned FEMA num youth charisma IE, that on which My name is not mentioned. So we should make sure that we eat that we say Bismillah before we eat, and especially Bismillah should be said, when the animal is being slaughtered. A woman can or may turn for a hearing,

00:17:52--> 00:18:38

and is one who was dead. And we gave him life. There is a person who was once upon a time dead. What does that mean? It means that they didn't have Amen. This is referring to the death of the soul of the heart, that once upon a time, they did not have faith, their body was alive. But their inner person was dead, because they did not have faith. They were in ignorance. They neither knew who their Lord is, or who their messenger is. They didn't know about their Deen. They didn't know about the ohana. What happened for a hyena who and we gave him life, meaning Allah subhanaw taala gave this person a man. He gave him knowledge, awareness, understanding of the religion and made for him

00:18:38--> 00:19:27

light by which to walk among the people around the law. So he is living amongst people. But it's very different in the way that he lives, in his actions in his behavior in his language. And such is the impact of Eman. It not only revives the inner person, it not only revives the heart, bringing the heart back to life. But it also makes a person it gives a person clarity and knowledge and direction so that even in the midst of darkness, even when a person may be surrounded by those who are not upon faith, a person still knows what is right and what is wrong. So there is light on the inside and light on the outside. There is faith in the heart and there is obedience to Allah

00:19:27--> 00:20:00

soprano, tada on the outside as well. So a person is not just at peace themselves, they also become a means of a source of peace and comfort for the others. So such is a man it completely transforms a person's external and their internal. So can this person be like one who is in darkness never to emerge there from Why is he in darkness? Because he doesn't know what light is. He doesn't even know it.

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

If anything is wrong, so how would he emerge? There is a huge difference between these two people. Thus it has been made pleasing to the disbelievers that which they were doing. So they're very comfortable in their darkness. They do not even seek light. But a person success is when they know who their Creator is, when there's light on the inside, and there's light on the outside. What can that he could jarana he couldn't leave Korea in a cabin or Majidi Neha, Leon, Kofi her, and thus we have placed within every city, the greatest of its criminals to conspire they're in, but they conspire not except against themselves, and they perceive it not. And when a sign comes to them,

00:20:44--> 00:21:33

they say, never we never will we believe until we are given like that which was given to the messengers of Allah, we will only believe when we also receive Prophethood allies most knowing of where he places his message, he knows who is deserving and worthy of prophethood and who is not. There will afflict those who committed crimes debasement before Allah, and severe punishment for what they used to conspire for Man Utd law who do who, so whoever Allah wants to guide, yes, Sheila, Allahu Allah, Islam, he expands his chest for Islam to contain Islam. You see, there are two kinds of guidance. The first type is of his shot and his shot is Darlene meaning when a person gets to

00:21:33--> 00:22:24

know what Allah subhanaw taala wants, and this is something that is equally available to all people. The Quran, for example, is a guidance, any it's been presented for all people, everyone is allowed to come open the Quran, read it, listen to it. But many people, even though they know what the Quran says they don't follow it. Why? Because they don't have the second kind of guidance, which is the Hidayat of tofik, the ability to act on what you know. And remember that ability is from Allah. And that is by the opening of the chest, meaning the openness, the willingness to accept what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded to trust and believe in what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded, to be

00:22:24--> 00:23:15

comfortable with it, to have confidence in it, and to have the courage to follow it. So this has shut her solid. And when a person has shut her sudden, they're able to embrace Islam happily wholeheartedly, only then are they able to act upon it. So the person whom Allah wishes good for, he gives him the understanding of Deen for my udb law who and yet Thea who, Yeshua sadhana huli Islam, Allah opens their chest for Islam, one minute, annually, lo. And whoever he wants to misguide than what happens, he makes his chest tight and constricted, as though he were climbing into the sky. Imagine a person who is climbing up. And as they're going up, they're losing oxygen. So as they lose

00:23:15--> 00:24:05

oxygen, they begin to feel suffocated, they become out of breath. Or this has been interpreted as a person who is trying to go up, meaning they're trying to fly, but they won't be able to fly, because human beings are not able to fly. So no matter how much a person flaps their arms, they won't be able to go up. What they will get from this is absolute exertion and fatigue. So just as a human being cannot fly up to the sky, meaning on their own. Likewise, a man will not be able to enter the heart of this person. You see, if a person does not get oxygen, what happens? They can have respiratory failure. And this is something that we're hearing about these days a lot. And such as

00:24:05--> 00:24:54

this person, that the thought of Islam makes them feel like they're going to die like they cannot breed. They find Islam suffocating. They find the rules of Islam, very, very difficult. And so they they're very uncomfortable. They don't like it, they don't want it. Sun up on fasting Ramadan is like a prison sentence. This is why we learned that the hypocrite praise lazy Lee, they would sit in the gathering of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam all the way in the back propped up against the wall not listening, not paying attention at all, and would slip out whenever they would get a chance. So why because they didn't want to be there. Because the gatherings where Allah is

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

mentioned, where the Quran is recited where sacred knowledge is taught such gatherings are very

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

Heavy there unbearable for such people. So they find it very difficult to even listen to the Quran. Why? Because their heart their chest is closed for Islam. Thus does Allah place defilement upon those who do not believe. So it's not that these people want guidance, and Allah subhanaw taala does not want to give it to them. No, it's because there are already those who do not believe they have already rejected so they so they cannot fake it for long. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to expand our chest for Islam. Because the person whose chest is open to Islam, they will happily accept and follow the commands of Allah, then Salah will not be heavy, it will be the coolness, the

00:25:46--> 00:26:35

comfort for the eyes. Were you settling with a slimmer as Allah mentions in the Quran, they will fully and wholeheartedly surrender it Submit. But when the chest is not open, then every command feels like a mountain. Every statement of the Quran causes discomfort, then there's objection, then there's criticism. So we should ask Allah for guidance, we'll have a slaughter because the Pima and this is the path of your Lord, leading straight by the facade and that is Lee komiya. The Calhoun we have detailed the verses for people who remember incertitude Fatiha We ask Allah for slaughter, Mr. P. and here it is mentioned very clearly as to what's Littleton, Mr. Kim is and a person can only be

00:26:35--> 00:27:11

on Salatin was takim, when Allah allows them, so remember, two things are needed two types of guidance are needed, or even and we need both knowledge and action. And to receive both, we need the help of Allah. This is why we should ask Allah in a set autonomous docking, we should make the right to Allah rubbish rightly sorry, that Oh Allah, open my chest, expand my chest for Islam. And this ayah makes it very clear, we'll have that set off a little bit. There is only one slot, one path, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:27:12--> 00:27:58

Sorry, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wants to drew a line with his hand, meaning in the sand, and he said, how that Sabina la he was the payment, this is a less path that is leading straight. And he then drew lines to the right, and to the left of that line. And he said these are the other paths. And on each path, there is a devil who is calling to it. And then he recited this ayah. So this shows us that there are many voices out there that are calling us away from Islam. There are many ways many examples of people who have gone off the straight path and who are calling people off of this trade path as well. But it is important that we stay firm on it because it is Mr.

00:27:58--> 00:28:52

Team and no one can remain firm on it without the tofield kavala so never take this for granted. ask Allah for tofik ask Allah for hedaya never rely upon yourself but rely upon Allah, La whom darussalam your endora be him. For them will be the home of SNM with their Lord for who for those who go along this path. This is what often was the theme. What place does it lead to? It leads to down salon, the home of a salon and what will happen when they reach darussalam will Hoover Willie you home and he will be there protecting friend B Matt can we are Malone Why? Because of what they used to do. What is that was salon it is Jenna and it is called double salon. The home of a salon.

00:28:52--> 00:29:24

Why? Because a salon is Allah. So remember, gender is the home of a Salaam just as karma is called beta law. Now because Allah lives there, but it is called beta law his house as an honor, as a praise that this house is so noble. This house is so special and just like that, Jenna, it is in the neighborhood of a Salaam, remember genital for those is under the throne of Allah the Exalted.

00:29:25--> 00:29:59

So as salaam, Allah He is the Restore of safety, he is the perfection in himself. So the Home Depot seller, if you follow salon sort of become Mr. keema then you will be in those Salaam and Jenna is called dellosa lab because it is the home of everlasting safety, ever lasting security from all evil, all harm of any kind. Safety from death safety from old age safety from disease when when a place where when a person enters.

00:30:00--> 00:30:48

There is absolutely no disturbance, no discomfort. in Jannah people will be told that you shall have life and never die. You shall be healthy, and never be ill, you shall be young and never grow old, you shall live forever. You shall live in favor in blessing, and you shall never suffer difficult circumstances, we learned in another Hadees that they will not that the people in Jeddah will not even have to urinate, they will not even have to spit there will be no nasal secretions even because Jenna is darussalam there is absolutely no discomfort in gender and worldly life is plagued with discomfort, there is disease, there is death, there is old age, and gender is also called

00:30:48--> 00:31:36

darussalam. Because of the greeting of setup, that is special about it, remember, the greetings of the people agenda will be sent out. So, when they will enter agenda, they will be told Hulu Hulu Javi Sallam enter with Salah After settling in Jenna. Angels will enter them enter upon them from every door and they will say salaam aleikum and then conversation also they will be Salaam illa pillon salam and Salama and at the meeting with Allah will also be Salaam Salaam, Allah Mira Rahim and this is the place where Allah will be there when he Allah will be their friend, Allah will be their protector. This is why ESEA prayed or have they been a leader in the debate and fill agenda

00:31:36--> 00:32:22

that oh my lord, build for me near you a house intern. I want to house agenda but I wanted near you. So those who are on the straight path, then Allah will make them enter the salon Allahumma journeymen home and mention the day when he will gather them together and say all company have gene, you have misled many of mankind and their allies among mankind will say Our Lord, some of us made use of others. And we have now reached our turn, which you appointed for us. He will say the fire is your residents wherein you will abide eternally, except for what Allah wills indeed your Lord is wise and knowing and thus, and thus Will he make some of the wrongdoers allies of others for what

00:32:22--> 00:33:17

they use to earn Subhanallah those who are together in sin will be together in punishment as well. And we see in this ayah that the wrongdoers become allies and friends of those who do wrong. And this is one of the greatest tribulations on an oppressor that an oppressor a wrongdoer receives the help and support of other oppressors. Why How is this a tribulation? Because when he gets the support and help of other oppressors, then he is kept far from doing good from even realizing the wrong that he is committing. So he is led further and further away into wrongdoing. So never befriend an oppressor, never ever befriend an oppressor. And if someone supports you in doing

00:33:17--> 00:33:58

something wrong, then realize this is not actually help. This is Allah's punishment. Mr. shuttle Genie Well, it's all company of jinn and mankind did they're not come to you messengers from among you, relating to you my verses and warning you of the meeting of this day of yours, they will say we bear witness against ourselves and the worldly life had diluted them, and they will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers. Today, they're not willing to understand, but on the Day of Judgment, they will have no option but to admit guilt. That is because your Lord would not destroy the cities for wrongdoer for wrongdoing. While there are people were unaware, and for all

00:33:58--> 00:34:41

our degrees from what they have done, when he could lindora jaton mimma Emmylou, each person will have a rank in the Hereafter, according to their deeds. Remember, there are 100 levels of paradise. And the difference between two levels is like that of the sky and the earth. It's another world and the donnager the rank that a person will get in paradise will be according to their actions, according to their ummah. And I had these we learned that the reciter of the Quran will be told, recite and ascend, and their final rank will be the rank which at which they stop the recitation. So I shall do a lot more and have said that there are as many levels of Paradise as the number of the

00:34:41--> 00:34:59

verses in the Quran. So remember, the recitation of the Quran. Yes, it is a deed. But the real bearer of the Quran is the one who also acts by the Quran. Even though I am said that some of the pious predecessors would say the Quran was revealed to be acted upon

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

But the people took its recitation as its action. This is why the people of the Quran were considered to be the people who live by the Quran and follow whatever is in the Quran, even if they did not know the Quran by heart. But the person who merely memorizes it, but does not understand it, nor act by it than he is not of the Koran, even if he recites the letters and the wheat perfectly, just as arrows are straightened perfectly. So remember, the ranks of the hereafter are by Iman. And your Lord is not unaware of what they do. This is why it is said that if you want to see your rank before Allah, then take a look at your actions, they will tell you your position near Allah will

00:35:45--> 00:36:34

bucola honey you though Rama and your Lord is the free of need the possessor of mercy, if he wills, He can do away with you, and give succession after you to whomever He wills, just as he produced just as he produced you from the descendants of another people. Indeed, what you are promised is coming, death is coming it is approaching fast, it is on its way and you will not cause failure to Allah. Meaning Where will you hide? Where will you run to say, Oh, my people work according to your position for indeed I am working and you are going to know who will have succession in the home. Indeed the wrongdoers will not succeed. And the polytheists assigned to Allah from that which he

00:36:34--> 00:37:17

created of crops and livestock a shared meaning according to their own whims. And they say this is for Allah by their claim. And this is for our partners, meaning those whom they worshipped besides Allah, their idols. But the problem is, that what is for their partners does not reach a law, while what is for Allah, this reaches their partners. Evil is what their rule, you see the polytheists, they would allot shares of their produce, you know, different portions for different idols for different deities, but if ever, you know, they didn't have enough produce, they would take from a loss share, to give it to the other idols because they feared idols more than they feared. Allah

00:37:17--> 00:37:57

Subhana Allah, Allah is the one who created them, and who gave them sustenance, yet, they gave it to other than Allah, they've dedicated it to someone else. And we need to check ourselves that with our limited resources, whenever we are, you know, short on time, or, you know, we don't have much strength than what is it that we cut short on? Is it that we cut short on some of our entertainment, some of our, you know, talking to people, or is it that we cut down in our son on our call on our call? Who is it that we give preference to, and likewise, to many of the policies their partners have made to them.

00:37:58--> 00:38:38

And likewise, to many of the policies, their partners have made to seem pleasing the killing of their children, in order to bring about their destruction, and to cover them with confusion in their religion. And if Allah had willed, they would not have done so. So leave them and that which they invent, upon Allah, they feel good about having the choice to kill their children, they think it's empowering, to be able to get rid of a human that they don't want, whether it is still a fetus, or a child that has been born. This happened at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, before Prophethood in the time of jelenia, at the time of ignorance, and it continues in modern day

00:38:38--> 00:39:19

ignorance. And they say these animals and crops are forbidden, no one may eat from them except whom we will. They have made certain foods unlawful for certain people, all of this by their claim. And there are those camels whose backs are forbidden by them, meaning no one is allowed to ride them, and those upon which the name of a lie is not mentioned at the time of slaughter. All of this is an invention of untruth about Him, He will punish them for what they were inventing. And they say what is in the bellies of these animals is exclusively for our males, and forbidden to our females. But if it is born dead, that all of them have shares there and He will punish them for their

00:39:19--> 00:39:59

description. Indeed, he is wise and knowing. So we see over here certain things that the people of Makkah would do that how they had made certain good foods unlawful. Why? Because they had made them because they had dedicated those to their idols, for example, certain animals, they wouldn't find them when that animal would be dedicated to an idol. Allah created these things for your benefit, not so that you dedicate them to your idols, and then begin serving them. So all of this was untruth lies that they had invented. And they say what is in the bellies of these animals is exclusively for our males.

00:40:00--> 00:40:41

And forbidden to our females. So panela they wouldn't let their women eat certain animals. But if it is born dead, then all of them have shares there and He will punish them for their description. Indeed, he is wise and knowing those will have lost who killed their children in foolishness without knowledge and prohibited what Allah had provided for them, inventing untruth about Allah, they have gone astray and were not rightly guided. When a person commits such heinous crimes, that remember the heart also becomes hard. People who have no hesitation killing their own children and will wish to take the law of a lender on hand and make whatever they feel lawful and whatever they feel like

00:40:41--> 00:41:05

unlawful, then such people are deprived of guidance. Remember, we cannot please Allah by our own self invented ways, we can only please Allah through ways that he has legislated. So, a good intention alone is not enough. Good action is also necessary and what is a good action that which Allah subhanaw taala has legislated.

00:41:07--> 00:41:51

We learnt in a hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever innovates something in this matter of ours, meaning it is them, that is not part of it, will have it rejected. And it is Allah, Who is the one who causes gardens to grow both trellised and trellised mean different kinds of plants, some plants, there are creepers and crawlers, there are vines, and there are other plants that stand on their own different kinds of plants, and palm trees and crops of different kinds of food and olives and pomegranates similar and dissimilar, eat, eat of each of its fruit, when it yields and give it's due on the day of its harvest each of these things, but also when you harvest

00:41:52--> 00:42:43

that make sure you give the ocean there's a cat 1234 and do not be excessive. Why? Because in the hula, you have almost three feet. Indeed, he does not like those who commit excess. You see gratitude is that you enjoy the blessings that Allah has given them, you use them you don't. You don't prohibit them on yourself. But then you also share that blessing with others. This is why it is said give its help give it's due on the day of its harvest. Don't keep it all with yourself, but also share that with others. And gratitude also includes not wasting what Allah has given you. Lead 234 Do not be excessive. So it is important that the good things that Allah gives us the money that

00:42:43--> 00:43:11

our luck gives us, then we don't just spend it on ourselves, but we also spend it on those who are in need. When there is excessive wealth, there is a high chance of excessive consumption and wastage. So as already said, that is rough excessiveness. This is not to spend it this is to spend it in disobedience meaning to spend money in disobedience to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:43:12--> 00:44:07

So remember, spending a lot a great quantity that itself is not wrong, what is wrong is spending on sin, because that is a waste, because that is a waste of wealth. It is when when money is spent in sinful things, then that that then a person is not really taking the advantage, the benefit that they can truly get from that money. And also remember that spending only on oneself excessively, this is also a waste, because Allah subhanaw taala gave you this money, yes to fulfill your needs, but also to earn good reward. And how can you do that? by spending on others? So we need to check on ourselves that how often it is that you know, we spend money, for instance, on wedding dresses, but

00:44:07--> 00:44:53

how many times is a person going to wear that dress again? And why is it Why does it make sense that for the sake of the perfect photoshoot or to impress people that you don't even like you spent so much of your savings, even to be healthy reported that if there was gold equivalent to the amount of ablaze mountain, and a person spent that in Acts of obedience to Allah, so that he exhausts all of it, it would not be considered itself that would not be a waste. But if a person spends even a deal hump in disobedience to Allah, then that is Islam. That is a waste. So it's not about the amount of money only that you're spending, but where you are spending it on what you are spending the money.

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

So the shows is that just because a person has money and can afford to spend money

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

It doesn't mean that they can throw it around. In our heads, we don't eat, give charity and clothe yourself without being extravagant and without showing off. And we really need to check on our spending habits, you know, the the habits that we have developed over time. It's unfortunate that we don't mind spending on things like even decorations, and what happens to the decorations, they end up in garbage so quickly. But when it comes to spending in obedience to Allah, for example, paying for small fees for religious course, or to feed the hungry, we begin Penny pinching or whether any, this attitude needs to be fixed. We like spending on our status, we like spending on things that

00:45:45--> 00:46:33

make us look good so that we can get the perfect photos for the gram. And we pay way too much attention to detail on these matters. Just to look good in the eyes of people. We spent so much money on, you know, 50 different makeup products to look flawless. But why? What is the intention? Think in the hula, you have bull moose ravine? Indeed, Allah does not like those who commit excess. So we need to correct our intention, the reason why we spend money, and we also need to correct our behaviors. Where is it that our money is going? Does it really make sense that by such purchases, we facilitate the exploitation of the poor, the misuse of the world's resources, that there's so much

00:46:33--> 00:47:19

plastic waste, so much plastic waste, so much devastation on the planet, just because we are greedy to spend on our desires. So let us be more ethical, let us be more responsible, and let that reflect in what we spend our money on. And remind yourself in hula, you humble Muslim, Allah does not like those who commit excess. So just because you can afford it, it doesn't mean that you must buy it won't mean an army, Hamilton or Photoshop. And after grazing livestock are carriers of burdens. And those two small different types of animals for your benefit. Eat of what Allah has provided for you, and do not follow the footsteps of Shin Pon. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy. They meaning the

00:47:19--> 00:47:58

grazing livestock are eight mates of the sheep to the male and the female of the goats to male and female, say is it the two males he is forbidden or the two females? Or that which the wombs of the two females contained in farming with knowledge if you should be truthful, because this is what the people of Makkah had done. They had made certain animals unlawful, and other camels to the male and the female, and of the cattle to the male and the female, say, is it the two males that Allah has forbidden? Are the two females are that which the wombs of the two females contain? Or were you witnesses when Allah charged you with this? What proof do you have, then who is more unjust than one

00:47:58--> 00:48:27

who invents a lie about Allah to mislead people by something other than knowledge? This is misinformation. This is misguidance Indeed, Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people say, I do not find within that which was revealed to me anything forbidden to one who would eat it, unless it'd be a dead animal or blood spilled out, or the flesh of swine, for indeed it is impure, or it'd be that slaughtered in disobedience

00:48:28--> 00:49:08

dedicated to other than Allah, but whoever is forced by necessity, neither desiring it nor transgressing its limit, then indeed, your Lord is Forgiving and Merciful. And to those who are Jews, we prohibited every animal of an cloven hoof, and of the cattle and the sheep, we prohibited to them their fat, except what adheres to their backs or the trails or what is joined with bone by that we repaid them for their injustice. And indeed, we are truthful. So making things unlawful on yourself is a way of depriving yourself, why are you punishing yourself when Allah has made something unlawful? Don't make it unlawful on yourself. So if they deny you say your Lord is a

00:49:08--> 00:49:50

possessor vast mercy fekola bukem Lula, in West Sierra, and it is because of his mercy, that you were able to do what you want right now. But his punishment cannot be repelled from the people who are criminals. Eventually it will come Sofia, Allah, those who are associated with Allah will say, If Allah had willed, We would not have associated anything, and neither what our forefathers, nor would we have prohibited anything. You see a lot of people make this excuse to justify their wrongdoing, that if I'm doing something wrong, then you know what everything happens by the will of Allah. So if I'm doing this wrong action, then you know what Allah wants me to do this sound

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

familiar? Many people come up with sub justifications. So a lot of people like to put the blame on Allah for their wrongdoing.

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

Allah says

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

Cavalli caca de la Vina Min cobbly him likewise did those before denied until they tasted our punishment, say, do you have any knowledge that you can produce for us, you follow not except assumption and you are not but falsifying, meaning there is no basis for such a claim, we have to understand the difference between Allah's Will and ullas love, remember, everything happens, whether it is good or evil, and action of a human or animal, everything happens by the will of Allah, what does that mean? That means that for any effect to occur, there must be a cause a process, and Allah has created this universe such that it functions with us Bab through means rainfalls, and as a

00:50:50--> 00:51:40

result of that, plants grow, a person puts their hand in the fire and as a result of that, their hand will burn. But remember the effect the growing of plants, the burning of hand, this cannot occur on its own, it can only occur by the permission of Allah, which means that if Allah wants, he can prevent the effect from coming about, did Allah subhanaw taala not prevent the fire from burning Ibrahim re Sena? Yes, he did. So the effect the result of various processes is not independent of Allah, these things are not happening on their own. Nothing goes from one stage to another without Allah's will. So just like that, when we intend to do something, we cannot really act upon it unless

00:51:40--> 00:52:24

and until Allah allows us, Allah subhanaw taala lets us he gives us that permission, because he has the power to stop us to prevent us. Secondly, we should remember that just because Allah allows something, it does not mean that he loves it. We have learned how there are words, there are actions that Allah loves. And then there are those words those actions which Allah does not love. So if a person does something wrong, yes, they managed to bring their will into action only by the will of Allah, which means that if Allah wanted, he could have prevented them by force, because they cannot escape Allah. But it is not the way of Allah to force people to guidance. And this is the reason why

00:52:24--> 00:53:10

there is evil in the world. This is a reason why their crimes in the world horrific ones, but we should remember that this freedom that people have is not endless. There is hisab, there is record. So one should never feel diluted by their condition, that you know what, if I'm able to do all of these wrong things and not getting caught, then perhaps you know what, there's no God, or you know what, maybe I am doing something right. These are all delusions, what Allah subhanaw taala loves is what he has commanded us to do. What Allah subhanaw taala allows, is not always what he loves, but he lets that happen. Why? Because his is not the way of forcing people to guidance of forcing people

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

to stay away from committing error. Because if that was the case, if people had no free will, than what would be the test of this life, say with Allah is the far reaching argument. If he had willed, He would have guided you all, say, bring forward your witnesses who will testify that Allah has prohibited this, and if they testify, do not testify with them, and do not follow the desires of those who deny our verses, and those who do not believe in the Hereafter, while they equate others with their Lord, follow the truth, not the lies that people invent, called darlow atooma hunter amount of buku money come say, Come, I will recite. I will tell you what your Lord has prohibited to

00:53:53--> 00:53:54

you.

00:53:55--> 00:54:40

So what is it that Allah has prohibited and led to Shri Coby Shea, he commands that you not associate anything with him, shake is how long it is the greatest sin will be the wily de near Santa and to parents good treatment, meaning respect them, treat them well take care of them, obey them, and what is it that Allah has forbidden? When a W two Lu Allah de come in in law, and do not kill your children out of poverty, that if they're born, then how will we provide for them? No, we will provide for you and then so why the despair and do not approach immoralities the following. Don't even go near them. And what is this indecent, vulgar speech or images, nudity, porn, Zina,

00:54:40--> 00:54:59

homosexuality, all of these things don't even go near them, what is apparent of them and what is concealed, meaning whether they're done in private or in public, neither commit them while hiding from people nor commit them with their knowledge. Remember higher is with a man and when one leaves the other

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

leaves one after Cthulhu of sanity harem Allahu Allah will help and do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden to be killed except by legal right Vatican was sercombe that this has he instructed you with great emphasis, why there are no contact pillows that you may use reason. So it is essential for us to learn what is hunted and what is wrong. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is instructed in this verse, to recite to the people what is lawful and what is not why recite to them so that they know what is lawful and what is not. And the same obligation is on those who have knowledge that they must keep this knowledge to themselves, they must inform others

00:55:46--> 00:56:24

and also we see here that Allah is the one who decides what is lawful and what is not. So halal and haram is decided not by logic, by but by what Allah has revealed, whether that is mentioned in the Quran, or it is mentioned in the Sunnah, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is commanded over here, you tell people what Allah has made unlawful, you know, Hadees, we learned that there will come a time when a person will be sitting, reclining on his couch and he will say that we have the book of Allah and whatever we find lawful in it, we will consider that to be lawful, and whatever we find unlawful in it, we will consider only that to be unlawful meaning we will not care

00:56:24--> 00:57:09

about what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, this is wrong. This is not the way of the believer, we take the Hillel and haram from Allah subhanaw taala from Revelation, whether it is mentioned in the Quran, or it is mentioned in the Sunnah. And do not approach the orphans property, except in a way that is best until he reaches maturity, and give full measure and wait in justice do not diminish people their rights, we do not charge any soul except with that within its capacity. And when you testify, meaning when you speak, then be just even if it concerns a near relative and the covenant of Allah fulfill that ecomo sercombe. This has he instructed you learn to come to the

00:57:09--> 00:57:53

Cologne, in order that you may remember what another subtlety Mr. keema and moreover, this is my path, the path of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is straight, so follow it and do not follow other ways, for you will be separated from his way this has he instructed you that you may become righteous. So this shows us that yes, there are many ways out there, but we must follow the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then we gave most of the Scripture making complete our favor upon the one who did good and as a detailed explanation of all things, and as guidance and mercy that perhaps in the matter of the meeting with their Lord, they would believe what had that

00:57:53--> 00:58:40

keytab Enza now, and this Quran is a book we have revealed Movado cone, which is blessing for tiberiu. So follow it. Don't just recite its words, follow it. And to do that, you have to learn it. You have to understand it. You have to work you have to make the Quran your guide what the Buddha Allah come to hambone and fear Allah so that you may receive mercy. So whoever wants the mercy of Allah should follow this book. Allah's mercy is for the people who fear Him. So we see that Allah spent Allah tells us to follow the Quran. Why? Because every good thing which people are in need of knowing is mentioned in the Quran. And every evil that people need to refrain from is also pointed

00:58:40--> 00:59:25

out in the Quran. So follow the Quran. And this book is Mubarak. It is a source of endless continuous benefit and blessing. We think that the only benefit we can receive from the Quran is by reciting its words. So we just recited and on every letter, we get 10 good deeds, that is true, but that is not the only benefit that the Quran brings. Or we think that if we keep the Quran somewhere in our house, then our house will be safe in our car, our car will be safe. No, the Quran is not just for these things. The Quran is a source of endless, endless continuous benefit, there is a reward in reciting it in teaching it in learning it there is increase in faith. When a person when a

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

person contemplates on it, there is mercy when a person follows its teachings. When a person recites it in Salah, there's company of the angels, when a person establishes a connection with the book of Allah a constant connection, then there, then they are mentioned in good terms in the heavens above. It is a source of honor a source of dignity. It is a source of protection against sin, the Quran is healing, and it also brings blessing in the home. We learn that one of the scholars who would advise his student that increase in the recitation of the Quran

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

Do not leave it for what you seek will only be made easy for you according to how much you recite of the Quran, meaning, if you want the help of Allah in something, if you want certain things to become easy for you then start reciting the Quran in proportion to the amount of help that you need. And the help of a lot that you receive, will be in proportion to the time that you spend with the book of Allah. So this Quran is mobarak, it is a source of salvation in this world, and in the Hereafter, because of it, a person will be because of it, there will be ease in the questioning in the grave. Because of it, a person will be protected from the punishment of the grave. Because of it, a person

01:00:46--> 01:01:27

will receive intercession of the Quran on the day of gentlemen, he will have shade, on the day that there will be no shade, that he will be given a crowd of honor, and he will be given high ranks in Paradise. So follow this code on because it is mobarak We revealed it lest you say the scripture was only sent down to two groups before us. But we were off their study unaware or less to say, if only the scripture had been revealed to us, we would have been better guided than they. So there has now come to you with clear evidence from your Lord and a guidance and mercy, then who is more unjust than one who denies the verses of a law and turns away from them upon the law, the book is there,

01:01:27--> 01:02:17

but he doesn't bother to read it, or to reflect on it or to follow it, we will recommend those who turn away from our verses, with the worst of punishment for their having turned away. So remember turning away from the Quran is a crime. Do they then wait for anything except that the angel should come to them, or your Lord should come? Or that they come? Or that they're come some of the signs of your Lord, the day that some of the signs of your Lord will come? no soul will benefit from its faith, as long as it had not believed before, or had earned through its faith, some good say, Wait, indeed, we also are waiting. So do something good before death comes because at the time of death,

01:02:17--> 01:02:58

than a person will only have regrets that are below a halt any illa ajilon calib that will love Why did you not give me some more time so that I could give some more charity and I could be of those who are righteous, don't wait till then do it. Now, the Prophet salallahu orders and was asked about which charity is best. And he said to give when you are healthy and greedy, you are in good health. And you also like what you have you wanted for yourself and you hope to be wealthy and you are afraid of becoming poor. Meaning you have that risk that if you spend, then you will you might have less in the future. He said don't don't delay giving in charity till the time when you are on the

01:02:58--> 01:03:08

deathbed when you say give to so and so and give to so and so, because at that time any at the time of death now that your property is no longer yours, it belongs to others now

01:03:11--> 01:03:59

in the levina for Rocco Dena home Indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects, they have become divided into groups you will profit are not associated with them in anything, meaning they have nothing to do with the religion, their affairs only left to Allah, He will judge between them, then he will inform them about what they used to do. So this is shows us that we must avoid division and we must avoid innovating things in religion. Mangia Abele has an anti fella who are unfairly her. Whoever comes on the Day of Judgment with a good deed will have 10 times the like they're off to his credit. This is Allah's mercy, his favor upon His servants. And whoever comes

01:03:59--> 01:04:10

with an evil deed will not be recompensed except the like they're off and they will not be wronged. in Hades we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah subhanaw taala has,

01:04:11--> 01:05:00

has told the angels that whoever intends to perform a good deed, but does not do it, then write it down as a complete good deed. And if he intended to perform it, and he ended up performing it, then write it down as 10 good deeds up to 700 times and too many more times. And if a person intends to perform an evil deed, but does not do it, then it is written as a good deed. And if he intended it, and does it, then it is only written as one bad deed. This is Allah subhanaw taala his generosity. So if Despite this, a person's deeds are less on the Day of Judgment than who is to blame. Say, indeed My Lord has guided me to a straight path, a correction

01:05:00--> 01:05:54

Religion, the way of Ibrahim inclining toward truth, and he was not among those who associated others with a law called inner solidarity. One who Suki? Well, mahiya woman Mati lillahi, rabbil. alameen say, indeed my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds. This means that everything I do, whether it is prayer, or it is ritual slaughter, the food that I eat, or other things in my life, and the moment that I die, all of this is only for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. This is teaching us a class that we should do whatever that we do for the sake of Allah and Allah alone, whether it is a religious act of worship, or it is a worldly

01:05:54--> 01:06:39

matter, we should do it with sincerity for the sake of Allah, because Then, and only then will it be rewardable. And this ayah also means that my prayer and my sacrifice are lilla meaning by his command, not by my desire, so when it comes to worship, I worship Allah, the way that he has commanded me. And when it comes to sacrificing, meaning slaughtering animals, that also I do, according to the way that Allah subhanaw taala has taught, it is lilla it is according to Allah s command. Why am I here i a woman Mati my life and my death are also lillah meaning they are by his command. So when he gave life and he will give death than whatever that is in between the two should

01:06:39--> 01:06:41

also be according to His law.

01:06:42--> 01:07:29

So, in this one it when usuki when mahiya wama Mati lillahi, Rabbil alameen lashley luxury Cola, no partner has he, and this, I have been commanded, and I am the first among you of the Muslims. So whether others are submitting to Allah or not, when Allah subhanaw taala has ordered something, then we should obey, even if we are the only ones say is it other than Allah, I should desire as a lord, while he is the Lord of all things. And every soul earns not blame except against itself, and no bear of burdens will bear the burden of another, then to your Lord is your return. And he will inform you concerning that over which you used to differ. And it is he who has made you successors

01:07:29--> 01:07:56

upon the earth, and has raised some of you above others in degrees, in wealth in strengths and opportunities. He has kept differences between people, why, that he may try you through what he has given you. So your liberties are in fact a trial. Do not misuse them. Remember, indeed, your Lord is swift in penalty, so don't forget him. And indeed, he is Forgiving and Merciful, so always have hope in Him.

01:07:57--> 01:08:37

Sooner till are off Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. Alif Lam Meem Saad, this is a book revealed to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So let there not be in your chest, any distress there from? And why has this been revealed? That you may warn thereby, and as a reminder to the believers, so inform those who don't believe and remind those who already believe. So this shows us that the Quran is for people who don't believe who don't know, and it is also for those who believe those who know the Quran is for all because it

01:08:39--> 01:08:43

because the Quran informs and it also reminds

01:08:44--> 01:09:33

follow all mankind, what has been revealed to you from your Lord, and do not follow other than him any allies. Little Do you remember? And how many cities have we destroyed and our punishment came to them at night or while they were sleeping at noon? We should ask Allah subhanaw taala for protection for safety and well being because we don't know what may befall us in the night or in the day while we are awake or we are asleep while we are aware or we are unaware so every morning and every evening as per the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made this there are a lahoma in the SLO Kala raffia to fit dunya well I feel that Oh Allah, I asked you for wellbeing for safety in

01:09:33--> 01:09:41

this world and in the hereafter Aloma in the medical app for when our fear or Allah I asked you for forgiveness and well being fee Dini will do

01:09:42--> 01:10:00

it in my religious and my worldly affairs and my wealth, Allah homeless through the road It was a mineral ermelo were RT or Allah conceal my faults and calm my fears a level my father ni O Allah protect me Min benei a day you from being

01:10:00--> 01:10:20

For me woman comfy and behind me were only a meanie when she Marley and protect me from my right and my left woman foci and protect me from above me, what are all the be automatic and overturn them in 30 and I seek refuge in You from receiving unexpected harm from below me every morning and every evening.

01:10:21--> 01:11:05

And their declaration when our punishment came to them was only that they said indeed we were wrongdoers, then they admitted their mistake, but it was no use fallenness Elena Latina oversee de la him, while an S ln l mursaleen. That we will surely question those to whom a message was sent. And we will surely question the messengers. So each person will be questioned on the day of judgment because colloquium Robin will could look on this on another at each of you as a shepherd, and each of you will be questioned about his flock, then we will surely relate, then we will surely relate their deeds to them with knowledge, and we were not at all absent, when was new yoma even it'll help

01:11:06--> 01:12:00

and the weighing of deeds that day will be the truth, meaning deeds will most certainly be weighed on the Day of Judgment. In fact, people will be weighed, their records will be weighed deeds will be given a tangible form. So a bite of food given in charity, if it's given with sincerity, it will be like a mountain in the scale. And this weighing will be absolutely help when it wasn't even in Heck, it will be absolutely just and fair, because the Misa is not faulty, the scale is not faulty, and the deeds will be assigned their true worth on the Day of Judgment, because the scale is how and remember this scale is massive, it is able to weigh something that even that is as large as the

01:12:00--> 01:12:47

skies and the earth. So it doesn't matter how many deeds a person will bring that day because the scales can weigh them from and Saku Latimer was he knew who for Ola eco humble Mosley hoon. So those whose scales are heavy, it is they who will be successful. So what are the deeds that will be heavy in the scales unless they could the remembrance of Allah Alhamdulillah fields the scale Subhana Allah fields half of it sapan Allah He will be handy Subhana Allah here are lame are words that are very heavy in the scales. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there are two qualities or two characteristics, which will not be returned by any Muslim without his entering paradise meaning

01:12:47--> 01:13:44

of a person does them then he will enter agenda. While they're easy, those who act upon them are very few. What are they? One should say sapan Allah 10 times after every sada Alhamdulillah 10 times and Allahu Akbar 10 times, he said, that is 150 on the tongue 150 over the five prayers, but 1500 on the scale. See that? Only 150 on the tongue, but 1500 on the scale. And when he goes to bed The second thing is when he goes to bed he should say Allahu Akbar 34 times and hamdulillah 33 times and Subhana Allah 33 times, for that is 100 on the tongue, but 1000 on the scale. So the vicar of Allah is heavy in the scale. Then hurstville hollow, good character, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

01:13:44--> 01:14:30

sallam said, Mammon che in US Guru filmyzila mean herstellen hollow, there is nothing heavier in the scale than good character. Then silence, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me without Shall I not tell you of two things that are easy on the back, but heavy in the scale? Our Lake I'll be hosting in Holyoke, what will what will is something that you must have good character, and you must observe silence for long, don't always be talking. Don't be so talkative, because by the one in whose hand is my soul. No creature has done a better deal than these. So these deeds are heavy in the scale. Then we learned participating in the funeral going for burials. Each of these brings up

01:14:30--> 01:14:59

the loss of reward, which is heavier in the museum than Mount Hood. Patience over the loss of children. This is also heavy in the scales. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there are five things that are heavy in the scale. La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar was the parent Allah Al Hamdulillah. And a righteous child that dies and the parents are patient over this loss with expectation of reward. This is heavy, heavy in

01:15:00--> 01:15:32

scale. Also the property that a person makes work that a person dedicates in the way of Allah, that he that he says that, for example, this house of mind, this land of mine, I want that whatever income is made from it, it goes in the way of a law, this will also be very heavy in the scale. in Hades, we learn that, for example, an animal a horse that a person dedicates in the way of Allah, then even the waste that the animal produces, it will be weighed in the meezan. When was a young woman even in health,

01:15:33--> 01:16:00

and and those whose scales are light, they're the ones who will lose themselves for what injustice is, they were doing to word our verses. So remember, injustice will be a cause of deprivation for a person on the Day of Judgment, especially towards the poor. And We have certainly established you upon the earth and made for you there in ways of livelihood. Little are you grateful, and we have certainly created you and given you form.

01:16:01--> 01:16:26

Then we sent to the angels Prostrate to Adam, so they're frustrated except for your beliefs. He was not of those who frustrated. Allah said, What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you shaitan said, I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay. Allah said descend from paradise for descend from paradise for it is not for you to be arrogant there in

01:16:27--> 01:17:14

all of our beautiful minha Allah said descend from here, get out of here for it is not for you to be arrogant there in so get out. Indeed, you are of the debased. So we see here that those who are arrogant, they don't in reality become great. They don't deserve to be near Allah subhanaw taala greatness is, is of the one who is humble before Allah, and those who are arrogant, are disgraced. shaitan said, reprieved me until the day they resurrected give me a long life to live. And this is why at least has not died since then. Allah said indeed, you are of those who are reprieved. It believes his prayer was granted, but he makes us believe that our prayers will never be answered. So

01:17:14--> 01:18:00

we should not stop making Dora just because we have committed a sin shaitan said because you have put me in error I will surely sit in wait for them on your straight path. This is ugly See ya. What is ugly see the way of a police blaming Allah for one's own wrongdoing. This is what a police did, he said you have put me in error of law. And he said that I will surely sit in wait for them on your on your straight path. So this shows is the Chalfont sits on the straight path to lure people away from it. In an Irishman, we learned that this trade path is off frequented the devil's frequented often, and call out all servants of Allah come this other way. So hold on to the rope of Allah.

01:18:01--> 01:18:38

Indeed, the rope of Allah is the Quran. So shaytaan he calls people away from the path of Allah. If a person is about to embrace a step, are you really going to change your religion? Are you really going to change your whole life? Are you really going to do what you're what nobody in your family has done? And when a person is Muslim, then even then shame on keeps preventing them from doing good. Are you really going to go out in the way of Allah? Are you really going to study the Koran? Are you really going to wear hijab? How can you do that shavon stops a person from good work, he said, then I will come to them from before them, and from behind them, and on their right and on

01:18:38--> 01:19:24

their left, and you will not find most of them grateful to you. So Panama. See the reason behind much of our grief and our grievances is actually our own in gratitude. We fail to see the blessings of Allah. And this has shaped an assault on the human being, to make the human being focus on what is gone, to dwell on the problem and not seek the solution. Not see what Allah has given as a substitute. The thing is that life is ever changing. So we must learn gratitude. And gratitude is not always easy. It doesn't always come naturally. You have to practice it. You have to consciously practice it. You have to consciously bring to mind the blessings that Allah has given you.

01:19:25--> 01:19:36

So he said that I will come to them from all directions. And notice how he didn't say I will come from above them because he knew that above them is Allah. So your connection with Allah is always open.

01:19:39--> 01:19:59

Kala ruderman hammer oma mother, hurrah. Allah said get out of here, reproached and expelled, whoever follows you among them, I will surely feel hell with you all together. So this shows us that the way of shame pod is the way that leads to hell. And oh Adam, dwell you and your wife in Paradise and eat from wit and eat

01:20:00--> 01:20:43

from wherever you will, but do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers. But shavon whispered to them, he started on the first day, to make apparent to them that which was concealed from them of their private parts shaitan wanted, that their clothes which will give which were given to them in genma, would be taken away from them so that they would be exposed and they would be humiliated. So he said, to Adam, and however, that your Lord did not forbid you this tree, except that you become angels or become of the immortal, he made them forget that they were not to stay in Jenna forever. Anyway. They were supposed to be in Jeddah, temporarily, right? They were supposed to

01:20:43--> 01:21:29

go to Earth. But he said that this tree, any, you have only been forbidden to eat from it, so that you don't live here forever. So if you want to live here forever, then you must eat of the fruit of this tree. The thing is that shape Han makes sense, attractive. And he makes us believe in the benefits of what Allah has forbidden, so that we make what is unlawful lawful for ourselves. And he starts by making us think bad about Allah subhanaw taala, that your Lord forbid you from this so that you don't get this benefit. Right? This is the trick of shaitan. This is his deception. So it is essential that we learn what those tricks are so that we can avoid them. And he swore to them

01:21:29--> 01:22:14

What a liar, but with false offs, he managed to convince them, he said, Indeed, I am to you from among the sincere advisors. So he made them fall through deception. And when they tasted of the tree just tasted, their private parts became apparent to them. And they began to fasten together over themselves from the leaves of Paradise, they were embarrassed, and their Lord called to them did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you that shape on is to you a clear enemy. So remember, there are two kinds of sins. One type of sin is to refuse to obey Allah. And this is what obliques did. And the other type of sin is to do what Allah has prohibited. And this is what Adam or the celeb

01:22:14--> 01:22:35

did, and both are wrong. So Adam and Hawa Paul now, they both said, or have been LLM, nanfu Sena, our Lord, we have wronged ourselves with a lambda fiddling with our heavner and if you do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, Nicola nominal ha serene, then we will surely be among the losers.

01:22:37--> 01:22:43

And you see, this was the difference between Adam and shape on when shaitan made a mistake.

01:22:45--> 01:23:31

When shaitan earned one check on made a mistake, he insisted and persisted. When other SLM aired, when he made a mistake, he left the sin and he repented. The fact is that we are not perfect, we will make mistakes, there will be slips and falls. But remember, there are two options. A person does not fall by choice, a person falls by accident. So when there is a slip, when there is a fall, we have two options. One is that we remain fallen. And the other is that we get up, we learn and we dust off any dirt, any, you know, some any bad thing that has come at us, we dust it off, we straighten our clothes, we fix ourselves, and we continue.

01:23:32--> 01:24:15

This is what other money sent him did. And this is what we need to do that when we make a mistake when we commit a sin. Don't remain fallen over there. No, get up and learn from that experience that you know what, because I tripped over this. This is how I fell. Recognize the way through which shavon made you commit that sin, recognize the pattern, recognize the trick so that you can avoid it next time. And then don't make the mistake that obliques made. You see Iblees blamed Allah subhanaw taala you put me in error. And this is a mistake that we also make a lot that when something bad happens, we are quick to blame other people. I wasn't able to pray because you know what my mom

01:24:15--> 01:24:59

never taught me. My mom never gave me the habit of praying regularly. So it's her fault, not my fault. Don't blame other people and stop viewing yourself as a victim all the time. Allah subhanaw taala has given you ability he has given you liberty, so use that. And yes, sometimes people do cause us harm, but stop viewing yourself as a victim. Some people view themselves as a victim of the of Divine Decree. And you know what, because this isn't my color. This is why I will never be a good person. Don't consider yourself to be a victim. Do something you have the strength you have the ability get up don't remain fallen. If otherwise said I'm did it you can also do it. This is proof

01:25:00--> 01:25:39

Other money seven However, they asked for forgiveness and mercy. Why? Because forgiveness removes the trouble that one suffers because of their sin. And the Lima mercy brings good things and blessings. So they asked for mofetil and Lama. Allah said descend, being to one another enemies and for you on the earth is a place of settlement and enjoyment for a time. So being sent on Earth was not a punishment, either medicine I was going to come on earth anyway, Allah, Allah said in Nigeria, don't fill out the Khalifa. But before sending otherwise set up to Earth, Allah subhanaw taala showed him who his enemy is, and that is shaitan. He said, they're in you will live and they're in

01:25:39--> 01:26:26

you will die and from it you will be brought forth or children of Adam, we have bestowed upon you clothing to conceal your private parts and as adornment. So there are two objectives of clothing for both men and women. That first of all, clothing should cover us properly. And secondly, it should adorn us It should beautify us. So clothing is not just for adornment, so don't compromise on the covering just for the sake of wearing nice clothes. When the best toccoa velyka hide, but the clothing of righteousness that is best that is from the signs of Allah that perhaps they will remember Libous Dakota is better. Lavasa taco is clothing which reflects the poor clothing which

01:26:26--> 01:27:21

reflects piety and the fear of God. How? Because it conceals a person properly. It doesn't reveal a person's body. So labasa taqwa is clothing that reflects that yes, this person has fear of God. So that clothing is not too tight, or see through or short. And the Prophet sallallahu already sort of warned us against this. He said there are two types among the people who might have not yet seen and one of them is who, women who are naked in spite of being dressed. So it's not enough to just put some clothes on, it's important to make sure that those codes showed the Aqua they are in align with the taqwa of Allah that they cover properly. Lavasa, taqwa is clothing, which is piety itself,

01:27:21--> 01:28:12

meaning would really adorns a person, before Allah and before people is what not their physical garments that they're wearing, but their Amen, their fear of Allah, their good behavior, their righteous actions. So remember, it is piety that conceals one's sins also. And it brings about forgiveness also, it is piety, that beautifies a person more than fancy clothes, beautify a disobedient person. So our focus should not only be on our physical clothing, that you know what my clothes should be perfectly ironed, and that there should be no flaw in them and they should be of the latest design and they should be new and they should be clean. Yes, that is all important. But

01:28:12--> 01:28:17

more important is piety, righteous action, faith,

01:28:18--> 01:29:00

or the buzzer taqwa is the clothing that will be given because of the color and it will be given where in the hereafter the clothing that the righteous will wear in Paradise, it is May and bustling with the cone, it is what the pious will wear on the Day of Judgement. So don't just be concerned about the expensive and fashionable clothes in this life, that all of your money and your attention is going into it. And that you don't care about the guidance of a lot regarding clothing. Prepare for what will adorn you in the hereafter prepare for what will clothe you on the Day of Judgment, because remember, all people will rise from their graves unclothed on the Day of Judgment, and then

01:29:00--> 01:29:44

they will be given clothing. Ibrahim is and I will be the first one to be clothed on the Day of Judgment. Yeah, but he Adam, all children of Adam, lead not shaitan tempt you as he removed your parents from Paradise, stripping them of their clothing to show them their private parts. Don't let tripod convince you into dressing inappropriately, so that you end up revealing your body or you end up committing sins that will be a cause of removal of your blessings, removal of your dignity. Indeed, shaitan sees you he and his tribe from where you do not see them. So you have to be ever careful. Very, very vigilant. You see in movies how you know a person is trying to protect

01:29:44--> 01:29:59

themselves from an invisible enemy. And you can see the fear on the face. So this is our reality. shaytaan is our enemy who is out to harm us. So we can never ever let our guard down regarding us.

01:30:00--> 01:30:41

any aspect of our lives? Indeed we have made the devil's allies to those who do not believe. And when they commit an immorality, you see the machine, when they will perform the proffer on the Kaaba, they will do so while they were naked, because they would say we should come before Allah in an all natural state. They say we found our father's doing it. And Allah has ordered us to do with say, Indeed, Allah does not order in morality, he never ordered you to do this. Do you say about Allah, that which you do not know, say, My Lord has ordered justice, and that you maintain yourselves in worship of him at every place of frustration, and invoke him, sincere to him in

01:30:41--> 01:31:29

religion, just as he originated you, you will return. So Allah subhanaw taala. He wants his loss from us that we worship him with sincerity and we worship Him in the manner that he has legislated. A group of you He guided and a group deserve to be in error. Why, indeed, they have taken the devil's as allies instead of Allah while they thought they were guided. So you have any other or children of Adam, take your adornment at every Masjid Who? Xena tocom in the Kali Masjid, meaning when you worship Allah, then do so with your Xena. What is Xena What is this adornment, it is clothing, meaning dress appropriately, when you worship Allah subhanaw taala make sure that your

01:31:29--> 01:32:11

body is covered properly. Make sure that your clothing or not is not just covering you, but your clothing is clean. Also you feel fresh, because that affects your performance. So Xena over here refers to nice clean clothes, and it also refers to miswak that clean your mouth, clean your teeth before before worshiping Allah and it also includes perfume fragrance, but women if they're going to the mustard metalist pounce on that allow us to return to our massages. Women should not wear such a fragrance that spreads everywhere when they go to the masjid beautify and clean yourself for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. You see, when we were going to meet someone important, someone special

01:32:11--> 01:32:52

relating to methyl arella. But when there's something important, we make sure that we're dressed nicely, right that we are clean, our body doesn't smell. We in our heads we learn that when one of you prays he should wear two garments because wearing two garments was like wearing proper clothing at that time an upper and a lower garment. He said wear two garments Why? Because Allah is most deserving that you adorn yourself for him. So we should pay attention to this especially because we are home these days. When we were praying Allah let us make sure that our body is not smelly. Our clothes are not smelly, our mouth is not smelly. We should do something to clean our mounts to clean

01:32:52--> 01:33:39

our bodies, freshen up, make will do shower, change your clothes, but be fresh and clean. And also Pendleton is deserving of that. And especially when going for mustard. One should pay attention to this because the prophets of Allah organism emphasize this a great deal taking a bath before going for jamara wearing clean clothes. And also we learned about you know removing the extra hair from the body and clipping the nails etc. All of this is part of adorning oneself and Ally's most deserving of that what could overshadow one after three food and eat and drink but be not excessive meaning don't stuff yourself, eat and drink the level of things but don't eat so much that you stuff

01:33:39--> 01:33:54

yourself. And this is especially relevant these days, that when you break your fast, then please don't stuff yourself. Why? Because then you will not be able to worship comfortably. You might actually fall asleep at the dinner table and not be able to pray any

01:33:55--> 01:34:24

problem Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us he said the worst vessel the son of Adam can fill is his stomach. And when we're fasting, we sort of pity ourselves that you know we're only eating two meals a day. The Prophet sallallahu Urdu sometimes family did not eat two meals on one day, except that one of those two was dates. It was raw food, it was not cooked food, it was not prepared food. So one meal was cooked, the other was raw.

01:34:25--> 01:35:00

We also learned that the people who most eat to their fill in this world will be the most hungry on the Day of Judgment. So let us adopt more simplicity in our food, so that we can focus on everybody. Let us adopt moderation in what we eat and eat what is lame so that what we eat also becomes a means of earning reward in the hula hiboy masuri feen Indeed, he does not like those who commit excess sopran Allah Allah does not like musli feen say who has heard

01:35:00--> 01:35:03

The adornment of Allah, which he has produced for his servants,

01:35:05--> 01:35:49

and the good lawful things of provision. So we should not go to this other extreme that we go on for prohibiting the things that Allah subhanaw taala has made lawful say they are for those who believe during the worldly life, but exclusively for them on the Day of Resurrection. Thus do We detail the verses for people who know? So remember, Allah Spano Tata has not forbidden us from using good things in life, whether it is good clothes, or it is good food? No, it's not prohibited. But Allah, Allah has commanded us to be moderate, and to eat what is lawful, and to wear clothing that is appropriate. And also we see over here, that the blessings of this world, whether it is clothing, or

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

food, any there they always have some kind of difficulty associated to them. The food that we eat, especially what is good for our health is not always fun to eat. And then after we eat, then there's repercussions after that we feel bloated, we feel tired, etc. Sometimes certain foods don't, you know, suit our health. And then when it comes to clothing, there's hardship in obtaining them and maintaining them. So we see that in the Hereafter, good things will be exclusively for those who believe meaning they will enjoy them without any trouble or any hardship alone would you run them in home? Say, my lord has only forbidden a moralities major sins? Allah, Allah has forbidden, what is

01:36:36--> 01:37:22

apparent of them and what is concealed. So whether an immorality isn't speech, or inaction, or in the mind, whether it is concealed from people or it is done in front of them, so it could be on the television, or it can it or it could be on your phone so that only you can see it. It could be at a party at a theater, or it could be in the privacy of your home. Allah subhana wa tada has forbidden all a moralities all obscene things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained that the adultery of eyes is looking, the adultery of tongue is speaking, the soul desires and has a passion. And the private part confirms or falsifies it. So we have to be careful about our tongue also, that

01:37:22--> 01:38:08

don't, don't seek joy in in talking about, you know, dirty things. Because the Prophet sallallaahu artisan was not fair hash or mocha hash, he was not obscene, or coarse. So we should also avoid mean language, dirty jokes, lewd expressions, whether we express them in anger, or comedy, or pastime. We should avoid all of this, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said for patient of Irish immorality, this has got nothing to do with Islam, meaning they're not Islamic at all. And the last point Allah does not like such people in the law hilarya humble foundation with a fish this is the reason why he is forbidden such things. So let us seek Allah's forgiveness for such behavior. And

01:38:08--> 01:38:51

Allah has also forbidden sin, whether it is open or hidden, and oppression without right and that you associate with Allah, that for which he has not sent down any authority, and that you say about a law that which you do not know. So be very, very careful when speaking about a law. Make sure what you say is based on knowledge, and if you don't know then say that, when equally omit in Agile, and for every nation is a specified term. So when their term has come, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they proceed it or children of Adam, if their comes to you messengers, if there comes to all children of Adam, if they're come to you, messengers from among you, relating to you my

01:38:51--> 01:39:35

verses, then whoever fears Allah and reforms, they will be no fear concerning them, nor will they greed, Fear Allah and reform, meaning change your state, change our actions, according to the revelation that Allah has sent, but the ones who deny our verses and are arrogant toward them, those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide they're in eternal eternally, and who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah a lie or denies his verses? Those will attain their portion of the decree until when Our Messengers come to them, to take them in death. They will say, Where are those you use to invoke besides Allah, they will say they have departed from us, and will bear witness

01:39:35--> 01:39:38

against themselves that there were disbelievers.

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

Allah will say, enter among nations which had passed on before you have jinn and mankind into the fire. Every time a nation enters, it will curse its sister until when they have all overtaken one another. They're in all of the nations piled up one over the other in hell. The last of them will say about the first of them our Lord.

01:40:00--> 01:40:44

These had misled us. So give them a double punishment of the Fire, he will say for each is double, but you do not know. So remember, no person can offload their share of punishment, their burden on another. Each is responsible for what they have done. So be very careful when you follow someone, and the first of them will say to the last of them, that you had not any favor over us. So taste the punishment for what you use to earn. Indeed, those who deny our verses and are arrogant toward them, the gates of heaven will not be open for them, they will not be allowed to enter their souls will be rejected, thrown back down into the prison of 16. nor will they enter Paradise. This is as

01:40:44--> 01:41:33

impossible as until a camel enters into the eye of a needle, and that is not going to happen ever. And thus do We recommend and thus do We recompense the criminals they will have from hell a bed and over them coverings of fire, and thus do We recommend the wrongdoers but those who believed and did righteous deeds we charge no soul except within its capacity. Those are the companions of Paradise, they will abide there in eternally, and we will have removed whatever is within their chests of resentment. This is the real beauty of Jenna, that hearts will be united while flowing beneath them our rivers and they will say Alhamdulillah All praise is to Allah who has guided us to this and we

01:41:33--> 01:42:02

would never have been guided if Allah had not guided us. Certainly the messengers of our Lord had come with the truth. And they will be called This is paradise, which you have been made to inherit for what you use to do. So in order to go to Jenna armor is necessary. And even though our actions can never be enough, we should still do what we can because it is only by the favor of Allah that people will enter agenda.

01:42:03--> 01:42:45

And the companions of Paradise will call out to the companions of the Fire. We have already found when our Lord promised us to be true. Have you found what your Lord promised to be true? They will say yes, then an announcer will announce among them the curse of Allah shall be upon the wrongdoers who averted people from the way of Allah and sought to make it seem deviant. While they were concerning the hereafter disbelievers. And between them will be a partition to the people of gender in gender, the people of hell in hell. And on its elevations, meaning neither in gender nor in hell stuck in the middle will be who men who recognize all by their mark, who are these men on the road

01:42:45--> 01:43:32

off their cases pending. So they will look towards gender and will recognize the people in general. And they will recognize the people in hell also, who are the people and the odd off. It is said that these are people whose good deeds and bad deeds are equal. So they're neither going here nor there. So their case has been deferred. This is why we should not belittle any good deed, and even any sin because one sin can be a cause of the scales to tip against our favor. And one good deed can be a cause of our entry into paradise. So do not belittle any good deed. Even if it is half a date that you can give, give it because perhaps that act of charity will save you from the fire of hell. And

01:43:32--> 01:44:13

they call out to the companions of Paradise, peace be upon you, they have not yet entered it, but they long intensely. And when their eyes are turned toward the companions of the Fire, they say Our Lord Do not place us with the wrongdoing people and the companions of the elevations will call to men within help whom they will recognize by their mark saying of no avail to you was your gathering and the fact that you were arrogant? Are these not? Are these the ones whom you meaning inhabitants have held swore that Allah would never offer them mercy? Meaning, aren't you the same people who used to say about those were in general now that Allah will never give them anything, Allah will

01:44:13--> 01:44:57

never be merciful to them. Why did they think like this, because the believers suffered in the world. And this is true. The believer does experience many trials in the world. But there is a common misconception that only If a person's only if a person has wealth and prosperity in this life, will they have prosperity in the next life, but that is not true. Allah subhanaw taala tests His servants, sometimes through poverty, sometimes through other forms of hardship, but those who remain patient through those hardships and those who remain true to Allah through the ups and downs of life, that Allah subhanaw taala will admit them into Jenna will do. Hello, Jana de la Hoefler

01:44:57--> 01:44:59

alaikum, whatever Antonia has no

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

It will be set to them enter Paradise, no fear will there be concerning you, nor will you grieve. And the companions of the Fire will call to the companions of Paradise, pour upon us some water, or from whatever Allah has provided you, they will say, Indeed, Allah has forbidden them both to the disbelievers who took their religion as distraction and amusement, and whom the worldly life diluted. So today, we will forget them just as they forgot the meeting of this day of theirs. And for having rejected our verses, we see here that the people of hell will beg for water, they will request the people of Paradise, give us some water or some food, but they'll be told no, this is

01:45:46--> 01:45:58

forbidden on you. Unless count it has forbidden some things for us in this life. And if we don't respect that, then the blessings of Allah will be forbidden on such people in the hereafter.

01:45:59--> 01:46:51

Remember, giving water to the creation is a form of charity. And when a person realizes that there are too many sins than they should give water to others, in our bus will de la Mora who was asked which charity is the best, he said water? Don't you see that when the people of hell will beg, they will first beg for water. Meaning what the creation needs the most is water. What people need on Earth, what living things need most even animals is water. So give water to the creation today, so that you are safe tomorrow. Some of the time your own would say that the person who sins are many, then he must give water to others. Because Allah forgive the prostitute who gave water to a dog. So

01:46:51--> 01:47:30

what do you think of the person who gives water to a human being not a dog but a human being? This doesn't, and and giving water to the entire creation anywho whoever comes before you and you have the opportunity to serve them water, then don't be stingy. And these days, especially when you're at home, when it's time to break the fast, then be eager to be the one who gives water to people to break their fast. Sometimes we become very stingy over here, very irritated, that what is the matter with you, you cannot even get water yourself. You expect me to serve your water also, at the time of sahul at the time of if thought be eager to serve water to people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

01:47:30--> 01:47:38

sallam said, the one who has a well dug and then any thirsty creature, human bird drinks from it, he will be rewarded for it until the day of judgment.

01:47:40--> 01:48:20

A man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that which sadaqa do you like the most, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said water. So do not withhold water, when you have an opportunity to give water, give it because in another Hadees, we learned that the people who lost count I will not even speak to nor look at nor purify them, and for them will be a painful punishment of them is the person who has extra water. But he doesn't let the travelers drink from it. So don't be stingy with water. And We have certainly brought them a book, which we and we had certainly brought them a book which we detailed by knowledge for celebrities in as guidance and

01:48:20--> 01:49:06

mercy to people who believe so the people of faith, live by this book do they await except its result? The dance result comes? Those who had ignored it before will say the messengers of our Lord had come with the truth. So are there now any intercessors to intercede for us? Or could we be sent back to do other than what we used to do? They will have lost themselves and lost from them is what they used to invent. Indeed, your Lord is Allah who created the heavens and earth in six days, and then established Himself above the Throne. So remember, Allah is above the Throne, not nowhere everywhere. He covers the night with the day, chasing it rapidly. And he created the sun the moon

01:49:06--> 01:49:50

and the stars subjected by his command. unquestionably. His is the creation and the command. Bless It is Allah Lord of the worlds so choose to surrender him with the ruler back home. Tada, Ron, well, Javier can call upon your Lord in humility, and privately, indeed, he does not like transgressors. So when you make the law, when you perform any act of worship, than exhibit humility, not arrogance, don't complain to people as if you are doing Allah a favor because it is sometimes a mistake that we make while we're fasting. That from the beginning to the end, we're constantly complaining, Oh, I'm so tired. Oh, I'm so sleep deprived. Oh, I'm so thirsty. Refrain from this exhibit humility before

01:49:50--> 01:49:59

Allah. Allah, accept this deed from me and be healthier. Meaning be private about your good deeds, refrain from showing off

01:50:00--> 01:50:51

privately cry before Allah, because this is the only way that you can connect with your Lord. even look at him said that in the heart is a loneliness that cannot be removed except by engaging with Allah in private. In it is a sadness that cannot be removed except by knowing him and being honest with him. In it is an agitation that cannot be made still except by running towards him. So call upon Allah with humility and in privacy and cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation and invoke him in fear and aspiration whether he will have fun will camara stay between hope and fear, indeed, the mercy of Allah is near to the doors of good some people have an extreme

01:50:51--> 01:51:34

amount of fear of Allah, unhealthy fear, that is not good, it is not permissible fear that makes a person despair is not permissible. Some people have no fear at all. So we should remain in the middle when it comes to hope. Also, some people have way too much hope. So they go on doing whatever they want, committing all of the things, not obeying Allah and they have hope that Allah will forgive them. So hope should not make a person negligent and careless, it should not make a person fearless, we should have fear. And we should have hope, will who will let me use Ilia, Busan beignet, they are MIT analysts, he who sends it out. And it is he who sends the winds as good

01:51:34--> 01:52:21

tidings before His mercy until when they have carried heavy rain clouds, we drive them to a dead land, and we send out rain there in and bring forth thereby a sum of all the fruits, thus will we bring forth the dead, perhaps you may be reminded, and the good land, its vegetation emerges by permission of its Lord. But that which is bad, nothing emerges except sparsely with difficulty. Thus do We diversify the signs for people who are grateful, the rain, the water is the same. But depending on the land, the produce the outcome is different. And Such are the hearts of people Also, remember, Revelation is like rain, and the hearts of people are like soil Earth. So each person

01:52:21--> 01:53:04

responds differently to the Quran. We should ask Allah subhanaw taala to clean our hearts, to strengthen our hearts so that we benefit greatly from the book of Allah. Now the stories of the previous prophets are mentioned. We had certainly sent new to his people. And he said, Oh, my people worship Allah, you have no data other than him. Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a tremendous day set the eminent among his people. Indeed, we see you in clear error. No, I said, All my people, there is not error in me, but I'm a messenger from the Lord of the worlds. I convey to you the messages of my Lord and advise you and I know from Allah, what you do not know, then do you

01:53:04--> 01:53:46

wonder that there has come to you a reminder from your Lord through a man from among you? Is this the difficulty, that he may warn you, and that you may fear Allah, so you may receive mercy, but they denied him. So he saved him, and those who are with him in the ship, and we drowned those who denied our signs. Indeed, they were a blind people, not physically blind, but spiritually blind, who refused to see the truth. And to their odd. We sent their brotherhood he said, Oh, my people worship Allah, you have no data other than Him, then will you not fear him? said the eminent ones who disbelieved among his people, indeed, we see you in foolishness, and indeed, we think you are of the

01:53:46--> 01:54:33

liars. Who there is that I've said, All my people, there is not foolishness in me, but I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds Subhan Allah, Allah chose the best human beings to be his prophets, yet people gave them such wrong labels that you are in error, or you are foolish. And look at the look of the prophets. Know how they said, I'm said, there is no error in me who the RSM said, there is no foolishness in me. He didn't say you are in error, or you are foolish. No, this was not their response. And this really shows that they were sincere. They wanted the best for their people. So they tolerated the rudeness, the harshness of their people so much. He said, I convey to you the

01:54:33--> 01:55:00

messages of my Lord, and I am to you a trustworthy advisor, then do you wonder that there has come to you a reminder from your Lord through a man from among you, that he may warn you and remember when he made you successors after the people of Newark and increased you in stature, extensively fed guru Allah Allah larhonda come to flee hoon. So remember the favors of Allah that you might succeed. Success is a

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

Result of gratitude. They said, Have you come to us that we should worship Allah alone and leave what our forefathers have worshipped, then bring us what you promised us, if you should be of the truthful SubhanAllah. When it comes to religion, people hold on to tradition so strongly. But when it comes to other things, we always want newer designs, and newer, you know, homes and newer clothing. We don't look at how people dressed or ate or how they live 50 years ago, no, when it comes to worldly matters, we want to be as advanced as possible. But when it comes to religion, we cling to tradition. We don't want to learn the religion, what it really is, we don't want to

01:55:43--> 01:56:23

understand it. We don't want to own it. We just want to do what our forefathers used to do. This behavior needs to be corrected. Who there is Salaam said, already have defilement and anger fallen upon you from your Lord, do you dispute with me concerning mere names, you have named them, you and your father's for which Allah has not sent down any authority, then wait, indeed, I am with you among those who wait. So we saved him, and those with him by Mercy from Us. And we eliminated those who denied our signs. And they were not at all believers. And to the samode we sent their brother solid it sent him he said, Oh, my people worship Allah, you have no data other than Him, there has

01:56:23--> 01:57:04

come to you clear evidence from your Lord. This is the she camel of Allah sent to you as a sign because they demanded that from him, they said, show us this miracle, only then we will believe you. And and what happened salejaw lesson I've showed them the very miracle that they demanded. But then he also told them leave her to eat within Allah's land, and do not touch her with harm, lest their sees you a painful punishment. And remember, when he made you successors after the odd being nation of odd and settled you in the land, and you take for yourselves palaces, from its planes and car from the mountains, homes, meaning look at your, your craftsmanship. Look at the homes that you

01:57:04--> 01:57:49

build. And the fact that you dig out you carve out your houses, in, in in mountains, then remember the favors of Allah and do not commit abuse on the earth spreading corruption, said the eminent ones who were arrogant among his people, to those who were oppressed to those who believed among them specifically, that do you actually know that Sally is sent from his Lord? Why do you believe him? They said, Indeed we in that with which he was sent, our believers said those who are arrogant indeed we in that which you have believed are disbelievers. So how would they understand anything because of this bias that they had for arco nepata. So they hamstrung the she camel, they killed

01:57:49--> 01:58:29

her, and were insolent toward the command of their Lord and said, All solly bring us what you promise us. If you should be of the messengers, sopran Allah, they demanded the miracle, they were shown that miracle, and now they killed the camel. And they said, Bring it on, bring the punishment, look at the height of their arrogance. So what happened? So they saw the earthquake sees them and they became within their home corpses fallen prone, and he turned away from them and said, Oh, my people, I had certainly conveyed to you the message of my Lord and I had advised you, but the problem is that you do not like advisors, what actually led to a Buddha now say hain, the thing is

01:58:29--> 01:59:12

that the people who follow their desires do not like good advice, but still keep advising no matter what. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave good news to the whole of the strangers. And when he was asked, Who are they? He said, alladhina usili. Who, either faster than us. There are those who set things right. When people have become corrupt. When people cause corruption. They focus on creating positive change. And we had St. Louis when he said to his people, do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the world's? What was that immorality? Indeed, you approach men with desire instead of women. Rather, you are transgressing people. But the

01:59:12--> 01:59:53

answer of his people was only that they said evict them from your city. Indeed, there are men who keep themselves pure. They boasted over their sin, and they mocked at the Prophet. So we saved him and his family except for his wife. Why she was of those who remained with them, because she agreed with them. She sympathized with them, she supported them, even though she was from the family of Luther is and we rained upon them a rain of stones, then see how was the end of the criminals and to the people of Medina and we sent their brother Sure. He said, Oh, my people worship Allah, you have no data other than him. There has come to clear evidence from your Lord. So fulfill the measure and

01:59:53--> 02:00:00

wait because they used to cheat a lot. So he said, fulfill the measure and wait. Do not be dishonest and do not deprive people

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

People have their due, and cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation, that is better for you, if you should be believers, meaning what you earn through lawful means through honesty is better for you than what you earn through dishonesty and cheating, and do not sit on every path threatening and averting from the way of Allah, those who believe in Him seeking to make it seem deviant. And remember when you were few, and he increased you and see how was the end of the corrupters learn from history. And if there should be a group among you, who has believed in that with which I have been sent, and a group that has not believed meaning there is this division right

02:00:39--> 02:01:27

now, then be patient until a law judge is between us and He is the best of judges. So be patient and wait And with time, truth will become even more manifest, it is already manifest, but those who refuse to see the truth, then there will come a point when they will be forced to see the truth when they will have no option but to accept it, but then it will be too late to change. So it is necessary that a person looks past their biases. that a person is not arrogant, and with a genuine sincere heart they seek guidance and Allah subhanaw taala will guide the person who wants guidance Allahumma dynamin home inshallah will conclude here subclinical level will be having a shadow La
