Santa Monica What are you about a cat Oh?

00:00:27--> 00:00:48

Are the bigger him in a shape line of law Jeanne Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, WA Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish lacking Sati were Sidley Emery workload iraq data melissani Yakubu Kohli among medical B was said did listen he was rude to him at Appleby amenia liberal mean.

00:00:49--> 00:01:14

Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, yeah, Are you her nurse or the jar of kombucha Nomura become one zelner eleiko neuron Nabina that all mankind, there has come to you a conclusive proof from your Lord. And we have sent down to you a clear light. The Quran is described as a light

00:01:15--> 00:02:09

in light shows you your way, when you're surrounded by darkness, light brings you comfort, when you are afraid. And the light of the Quran is the same. Not only does it brings guidance, the ability to distinguish between right and wrong, but it also brings hope. It also brings comfort when a person is experiencing difficulties in life. This is why it is so important for us to constantly hold on to the book of Allah. And this is one of the last pieces of advice that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave to the oma, he said that all people I am a human being a messenger, meaning an angel from my lord is going to come to me very soon, and I shall respond, meaning my death is near. And I

00:02:09--> 00:03:00

am leaving among you two heavy things. The first is the book of Allah in which there is guidance and light. So hold fast to it and adhere to it. So we see that in this hadith he mentioned that the book of Allah is guidance and light, so hold fast to it, adhere to it, because if you leave it, then you will stumble in the darkness. If you leave it, then you will feel frightened and then you won't know how to find your way we learn in another report that due upon you is the recitation of the Quran and the remembrance of Allah because it is a means of your good mentioned in the sky and a light for you on the earth. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to benefit from the light of the Quran and made this

00:03:00--> 00:03:58

light be forever with us. Just number nine Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Allah Al mela la Vina stuk Babu minakami he Lenovo region nakaya Shuaib one levena Manu Marika min Kalia, Tina oletter odunayo female Latina color avaloq una carry him set the eminent ones who are arrogant among his people, we will surely evict you or schreibe and those who have believed with you from our city, or you must return to our religion. Shoaib early his Salaam said, even if we were unwilling, we see that every prophet of Allah was opposed by the elite of his nation, who started his Salaam faced with our own the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dealt with the elders of the Quraysh. And here we see that

00:03:58--> 00:04:51

before them sure it is Sam was heavily opposed by the molap, the elite, the eminent ones from his nation. Why this is because such people who is stuck baru, who think highly of themselves, believe that they are more worthy of being followed. And that if Prophethood was to be given to anybody, it would have been given to them. The thing is that a person who thinks highly of themselves, actually feels threatened by the success of other people. They have a scarcity mindset. So they become greedy for power. And because of that, they fail to see the good in other people and the greed for power and status. The fear of losing what they have makes them so irrational, that they resort to threats.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

So they said to her, so they satisfy Maria Salaam that we will not put up with you. We will not accept you. You are not welcome.

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

Come here. And if you want to stay here, then you have to become like us. The response of sure as Sam was a while O'Connor caddy hain, even if we were unwilling, the thing is that a sincere believer cannot even imagine leaving. Amen. Why? Because a man is their identity. There are things in your life that you know, you move on from even people. I know people get married, and then their marriage doesn't work out and they get divorced and they move on. You live in a certain place in a city and then for some reason, you have to move you move on. But a man is not something from which a believer can move on from because he man is their identity. It is what defines them. It is their life, it is

00:05:51--> 00:06:43

their source of joy, and their comfort. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, no one will experience the sweetness of faith until he loves someone and loves him only for the sake of Allah. And until he would prefer to be thrown into the fire, than to revert to unbelief, after Allah has delivered him. And until he loves Allah and His Messenger, more than anything else. So this hadith is talking about the Hillel, what we eat the sweetness of faith. And one of the signs of experiencing sweetness of faith is that a person would rather be thrown into a fire than to revert to unbelief. Meaning that a sincere believer is not willing to give up their faith at any cost

00:06:43--> 00:07:09

whatsoever. And the sweetness of faith. Remember, this is experienced when a person has shut her sudden, when they have fully embraced faith in their chest, when their heart is inhabited by a man imbued with it. And then they're so pleased with it, they have so much confidence in it, that this is their source of joy. This brings about this brings.

00:07:11--> 00:07:51

This allows them to experience a sweetness in the heart, just as honey is sweet in the mouth. So faith becomes a pleasure that is felt by the heart. So how can a person even imagine leaving it? They said, We would have invented against a law a lie, if we returned to your religion, after Allah had saved us from it. And it is not possible for us to return to it except that Allah our Lord should will. Our Lord has encompassed all things in knowledge, meaning Allah knows the future.

00:07:55--> 00:08:50

They say that one may akun will enter a narrow Daffy hat Illa insha Allah hola buenas boonah, that it is not possible for us to return to disbelief. unless Allah our Lord wills sopran Allah, a prophet of Allah even is not assuming about himself, that he will forever remain on IE man, he conditions it to the will of Allah. Because the fact is that Nothing good can be done without the will of Allah. So a person should never assume that if they're able to do something good today, they will forever be like that. They should have that hope and intention. But they should also realize that it can only be possible by the tofield of Allah only by his favor. This is the way of the

00:08:50--> 00:09:39

righteous. They believe that a man and righteousness are in fact a favor from a law, not their own personal greatness. Because we see that very quickly. A person can stray from the right path. If you think about it, a blease was once upon a time a righteous person. So the fact is, that we can only do good as long as Allah allows us as long as he facilitates for us. This is why we should keep making dua to Allah. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to shut down even close, that when you see people hoarding and collecting gold and silver, then you should collect these words, meaning that you should say these words frequently. What are these words? It's a long

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

Dora but it begins with Allahumma inni Luca sebata Phil. Willa z matar the rushed, that Oh Allah, I asked you for steadfastness in the matter, meaning of Islam, and I ask you for determination on guidance, meaning you allow me to remain on guidance.

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

Because the heart The cloud is such that it experiences the unloop meaning it turns about it state can completely change any moment. So they said, are the law Hito Kellner upon Allah, we have relied, meaning we don't rely on ourselves. We rely on Allah. And then they parade on a benefactor, Sabina ouabain, Amina will help the Hyrule fatty hain, our Lord, decide between us and our people in truth, and you are the best of those who give decision.

00:10:38--> 00:11:28

The threats that believers face can be very real. But leaving faith compromising on faith is not something that the believer can even consider. So what is a person supposed to do in a situation like this? First of all, they rely upon Allah, not upon themselves. And secondly, ask Allah for strength. One of the draws that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would make was, yeah, when they yell Islam, you will miss sicne Islam or Hector, Al Kaka LA, that all Wali of Islam and its people, meaning Oh Allah, you are the guardian of Islam, and you are the guardian of the Muslims, keep me upon Islam until I meet you upon it. So the thing is that we are truly weak, especially in the face

00:11:28--> 00:12:18

of hardships, is those hardships that come from people. And we see that a times. Even one West facade, shave time can lead a person history, one social pressure can cause a person to compromise on their Deen and shaitan tries incessantly to lower a person away from the straight path. We don't know what might become a fixture. So never, ever be arrogant about your faith, and never take it for granted. Your faith and the good that you do, value it, treasure it, be grateful for it and ask Allah subhanaw taala to increase you in it set the eminent ones who disbelieved among his people, that if you should follow shape, indeed, you would then be losers. So they began spreading lies

00:12:18--> 00:13:04

about the Prophet of Allah. So the earthquake sees them and they became within their homes, corpses fallen prone. You see, they tried to shake the faith of sherry Braddock is Sam and his companions, how with their threats to evict them. But in fact, they themselves were shaken by the violent earthquake. They threatened the believers and were themselves destroyed. They were removed from the earth, because a jezza woman Jensen, the punishment, the recompense for a deed is similar to the deed itself. Those who deny trade, it was as though they had never resided there. Those who deny trade, it was they who were the losers, if you think about it, the people of Srebrenica them, they

00:13:04--> 00:13:55

were businessmen, they were trades people that were very, very well established. Their their economy was flourishing. But there came a point when it was as if they never lived there. Everything was finished. And he turned away from them. Sure, I barely saw them left and he said, Oh my people, I had certainly conveyed to you the messages of my Lord. And I advised you, so how could I agree for disbelieving people, meaning I did my part, and we sent no city a profit when I was seven nephew committeemen newbiggin. Illa, a hudna Allah Hi, Bill, But sir, he will perro de la la homeo la own, and we sent to no city a prophet, except that we seized its people with poverty and hardship. Why?

00:13:55--> 00:14:41

That they might humble themselves before Allah, they may invoke him so that he would remove the affliction from them. So Allah subhanaw taala tested those people who denied their profits, with what with hardships. Why, so that they would think about Allah and humble themselves before him. But then when they did not humble themselves, what happened, then we exchanged in place of the bad condition, good, a lesser penalty to change the trial from bad from a difficult state to a good state. Why, so that perhaps they will be grateful because some people they come towards Allah, through the door of hardships, and other people, they come towards Allah through the door of

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

blessings and gratitude. So Allah subhanaw taala gave both opportunities until they increased and they prospered. So we see over here, that they're that they prospered, they increased in their worldly blessings, and they failed to recognize that that was also a test.

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

So remember, prosperity and hardship are both tests from Allah subhanaw taala. Generally, we think that hardships are a test. But we don't view prosperity this way. You see, blessings are a test of should have gratitude, and Romano Dylan Warren who said that bolina bid the law he fuss about now, what bolina bisola, if alumnus bid, that we were tested through hardship, and we were patient, why? Because we understood that hardship is a trial. But then when we were tested with ease, we were not patient, meaning we failed to recognize that ease is also a test. So we see here that when people denied their prophets, Allah subhanaw taala, tested them first with hardship, so that they would

00:15:51--> 00:16:36

humble themselves and repent, and then with ease. So remember, Allah subhanaw taala tests people in different ways. Allah subhanaw taala gives people multiple chances. But we see that majority of the people fail both tests, because neither the first condition nor the second condition compelled them to change their ways. They said, Our fathers also were touched with hardship and ease, they did not comprehend Allah's wisdom. So we seize them suddenly, while they did not perceive. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the matter of the believer is amazing, because nothing that a lot decrease for him, except that it is better for him. If it strikes him he is

00:16:36--> 00:16:42

patient and that is better for him. If he's given some raw he thanks a lot for it, and that is better for him.

00:16:43--> 00:17:31

Now we are informed of what preserves blessings, it is said what an akula Manu with dako la de la him Baba katomina summer he will. And if only the people of the cities had believed and feared Allah, we would have opened upon them blessings from the heaven and the earth when that came coverable but they denied the messengers for a hide the now whom be mad, can we oxy boon, so we seize them for what they were doing, Amina to law, then did the people of the cities feel secure? From what and yet to whom, but sooner Bharat and wahome not immune from our punishment coming to them at night while they were asleep, so that their eyes never open again? Or did the people of the

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

cities feel secure from our punishment coming to them in the morning while they were at play, meaning in their hustle and bustle as they get busy in worldly occupation? So both past both possibilities are mentioned over here, that what if the punishment comes upon you suddenly in the night or suddenly during the day when you don't even expect it? This is why a believer should always be fearful of Allah subhanaw taala be afraid of Allah. When you say something rude when you write something rude when you do something inappropriate that what if the disaster the punishment of Allah falls upon me at this very moment? Do I really want to die in the state? FME? No. makalah then did

00:18:17--> 00:19:10

they feel secure from the plan of Allah, but no one feels secure from the plan of Allah, except the losing people, meaning such people will certainly suffer loss. Why? Because they fail to understand the mucker of Allah. They feel secure in their lives, and they don't expect any consequence. So they carry on committing more and more crimes, and then they're suddenly caught. Remember, the person who feels afraid, is careful before they open their mouth against someone. And before they say things and do things in their ignorance. They're careful. So even if they do make a mistake, then because of their fear, they repent. So the person who feels hurt, thinks, but the person who feels secure,

00:19:10--> 00:19:59

there is no introspection. And when there's no introspection, there is no repentance in a hadith return, that Allah gives rest bite to the oppressor. But then when he takes him, he never releases him. The believer feels afraid. The believer is afraid of his sins, like a mountain is suspended over his head, and has an imbecile He said, The believer performs the acts of worship, all the while fearing Allah in fright and anxiety, and the fact that the wicked person commits the acts of disobedience while feeling safe. When I'm Johan De La Nina, URI Sunil album embody Elisa, Alona Shah or a celebrity now whom be the newbie him has it not become clear to those who inherited the earth

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

After its previous people, that if we willed, We could afflict them for their sins, but we seal over their hearts, so they do not hear. These are two consequences of sins that a person suffers from muslimah a calamity. And secondly, they suffer from the hardness of the heart. And when the heart when the heart becomes hard, then a person does not even feel the feel any pain or any shame over sin.

00:20:31--> 00:21:21

Deacon Khurana pasar Aleikum in amber YHA, those cities we relate to you or profit some of their news, and certainly did their messengers come to them with clear proofs, but they were not to believe in that which they had denied before. Thus does Allah seal over the hearts of the disbelievers? And we did not find for most of them any covenant, but indeed, we found most of them defiantly disobedient. So my birth name embody who Mousavi Tina. Then we sent after them musala his Sunnah with our signs to who to fit our own and his establishment, but they were unjust to word them, they refuse to believe in the science. So, see, how was the end of the corrupters. So, from

00:21:21--> 00:22:13

here begins the story of musar de Sena and we have been directed here to pay attention to the result of the corrupters fun lo Look, how was the result of aloof city, the people who cause corruption who cause problems. You see, there are people who are not at peace in themselves. So wherever they go anywhere, in in person, or online, wherever they go, their goal is to just cause problems. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us over here funds Look, look and learn. What was the result of the people who cause corruption? Did they succeed? No, they did not work Allah Musa Fernando Indira Sula, Mirabella al amin, and moosari is Sam said often our own, I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds who is

00:22:13--> 00:22:57

obligated not to say about Allah except the truth, I have come to you with clear evidence from your Lord. So send with me the children of Islam, he. So we'll start in Santa had two main goals, first of all, to inform Fiona and his people to worship Allah alone. And secondly, to tell him to let the bunny is when you go to set them free. So if your own said, if you have come with a sign, then bring it forth if you should be of the truthful. So musala is sent out through his staff, and suddenly it was a serpent manifest, and he drew out his hand thereupon, it was white with radiants for the observers, said the eminent among the people of our own. Indeed, this is a learned magician, who

00:22:57--> 00:23:30

wants to expel you from your land through magic. So what do you instruct, they said, postpone the matter of him and his brothers and send among the they said postpone the matter of him and his brother, meaning how long are you send them and send among the cities gathers, who will bring you every learned magician, and the magician's came to fit our own, they said, Indeed, for us is a reward if we are the predominant sopran the law, the first thing that the magicians demanded was a compensation from fit.

00:23:31--> 00:24:16

And we see that musar SNM did not demand any kind of compensation. Why? Because a prophet of Allah seeks his reward from Allah. And those who are the footsteps of the prophets do the same, but people whose goal is dunya before they do anything, they always find out what's in it for me. He said, yes, you shall have a reward. And moreover, you will be among those made near to me, they said almost, either you throw your either you throw meaning your staff, or we will be the ones to throw first meaning Would you like to go first or should we go first musante salaam said a little cuckoo, you throw and when they threw meaning their sticks, they bewitched the eyes of the people and struck

00:24:16--> 00:24:59

terror into them and they presented a great magic. So here we see the Musashi Sam, let let the magician's go first, what was the wisdom behind this allow arland but we see that when you let others go first you are able to see what they are capable capable of doing, what their potential is, and then you have a target to beat and you get the last word. So that will have a lasting impact on people. So what happened now, Alice lb Darla says what oh hyena Illa Moosa an LPR sock and we inspire to Moosa throw your staff and at once it devoured what they were falsifying. So the truth

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

was established and abolished was what they were doing for workers who were both all American we are malloon. You see these verses talk about the destruction of magic, that how and I mean, at level one area one miracle was enough to destroy and break the magic of these expert magicians. And the fact is, that the effect of magic can be broken with the very recitation of the Ayat of Allah, of the verses of Allah. We see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he broke the effect of magic from himself, meaning when someone had done magic on him, he broke the effect of that magic. He destroyed that magic How? By reciting them or with attain, pull out a little bit Fennec and pull out

00:25:49--> 00:26:37

the little finesse. So if ever there is a fear that someone is under the effect of magic, then the recitation of this verse is very beneficial. What Oh hanaa illa Moosa and LPR sock for either he atellica familia, Fie Khun, for work RL Haku obatala. Can we are Malone and other verses in the Quran also, that that mentioned the same concept of how magic is being destroyed by the signs by the Ayat of Allah, then such verses should be recited frequently and find our own and his people were overcome right there and became debased. What will be your Salah to saggi, Deen and the magicians fell down in prostration autopia. They were thrown into such that it was as if something from

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

within, pushed them to prostrate to Allah to surrender to Allah, they said, and below below alameen we have believed in the Lord of the worlds of be musawah, Harun the lord of Moosa, and Harun. You see, magicians know what magic is. And they understand its limitations. So these magicians who were experts and experts in their field, they knew right away that what musasa was doing was beyond magic. It was far greater than magic. It was real stuff. And this is the reason why they believed right away, they did not feel arrogant over here, that How dare he beat us? and How dare he destroy our magic. They weren't like a police. They weren't like fit our own. And this is, you know, this is

00:27:27--> 00:28:11

how some people are, some people are just stubborn in their ways. unrelenting, not willing to even consider anything else, because they have made up their mind as to what they're going to do. So there is no point in wasting your time and your energy in arguing with such people. And then there are other people who, when they see the truth, they instantly recognize it. They wholeheartedly accept it. And they don't fear the criticism of any critic, said for their own you believed in him before I gave you permission. Indeed, this is a conspiracy which you conspired in the city to expel there from its people, but you are going to know. So we see that for our own. He immediately blamed

00:28:12--> 00:29:01

the magicians, that you know why you conspired with Moosa, this is all a plan, and then he threatened them. He said, I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides. And then I will surely crucify you all. You see, if they're cut from the same side, apparently, that this is something that causes death immediately, but fit our own. His goal was to torture them to the max. Why in order to teach his nation a lesson that none of you should dare even to believe in lusardi is set up. So the magicians when they believed, and they were given this threat by fit our own, what was their response? Did this account did they feel afraid? Did they give up? No. They said indeed,

00:29:01--> 00:29:52

to our Lord, we will return meaning what's the worst thing that that's going to happen? We'll die. Well, we have to die anyway. So we see that the fear of death departed from them. Why? Because they had Sakina. Woman moving in an Amana Be it rabina lemenager Atlanta, and you do not resent us, except because we believed in the signs of our Lord when they came to us, meaning Why are you so vengeful? How is this a crime even? And then they pray to Allah because there's no point in arguing with someone who is not even listening on a burner, a thriller, Alena, sobre, LA, whatever phenol muslimeen they said, Our Lord, pour upon us patience, meaning keep us firm on truth, when it has

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

become very difficult, and let us die as Muslims as those who were in submission to you. You see fit

00:30:00--> 00:30:51

threat was no ordinary threat. He it's difficult to even imagine hands and feet being cut from the opposite sides. And then a person is crucified, they're hung basically to die. Any, this is something painful to even imagine. So they asked Allah subhanaw taala for sub. And this is what we need to learn that in the face of fear, don't give up. And that can only be that resiliency can only come with the help of Allah. So turn to Allah asked him for sub, as they did on a burner, a frill, Alena sobre, that Oh, our Lord, pour on us patience, meaning give us all of it, a thrill of it is like, If love is when a bucket is turned upside down, so all of its contents are, are turned over.

00:30:51--> 00:31:41

So basically, they're not just asking for little bit of suburb, what they're saying is, we need a whole lot of suburb more than average suburb. And sometimes, a person can feel like this, at times a test. At times, the tests that a person faces in life can seem so daunting, they can feel it feels impossible. They're so frightening. Sometimes, you know, the fear and the anxiety is real. And sometimes it can just be in the mind of the person. And especially when that fear and anxiety is in the mind. And other people, they deny it, because they cannot see it. But just because it is invisible. It doesn't mean that that fear and that anxiety is not real for the person who is

00:31:41--> 00:32:28

suffering from it. So one of the things we should do in such situations, is to ask of us a panel data for a lot of subjects that are abana, a Phil Marlena, Sabra. And the second thing they asked for, is that what do I find? I mostly mean that Oh Allah, take us in depth while we are Muslim. They prayed for death upon Islam, because hakima belhaj is very, very important. As I mentioned earlier, shaitan tries to lure people from the truth, even at their death, he doesn't stop. This is why even the prophets of Allah prayed for a good end, the righteous prayed for a good end. And we should also ask Allah for a good end. And the eminent among the people of our own said, Will you leave Moosa and

00:32:28--> 00:33:11

his people, meaning they said this to fit around that? Are you just going to leave muslin? Is people any okay? you dealt with the magicians, but now what about most of these people? Are you just going to let them be to cause corruption in the land and abandon you and your gods. So you see over here that fit our own, he felt very defeated. by acting on his wrath, he didn't really make a difference. And we can see over here the influence of bad companionship. When an oppressor gets the support of other oppressors who incite him into more evil than this is one of the worst things that can happen to a person, because then to appease those friends. Now, what is found doing now his own authority

00:33:11--> 00:34:03

is at risk, his cabinet is turning against him. So he's desperate to get their support. So he says, We will kill their sons and keep their women alive. Beating, we will, we will begin another episode of you know, such terror against the bunny isela. Eve, that we're going to go and kill their sons, and we're going to keep their women alive. And indeed, we are subjugated over them, meaning we have control over them, because they are slaves to us, and we can control them by force. Now imagine hearing such dreadful news. Karla musala comi he, Musa alayhis salaam said to his people, is there a new Billa he was biru seek help through Allah and be patient, Allahu Akbar. He said, Indeed, the

00:34:03--> 00:34:53

earth belongs to Allah, not to find our own. Allah causes to inherit it, whom He wills of his servants. And right now, yes, fit our own has been given some power over the land, but Allah is the one who gave it to him in a luck and also take it away whenever he wants. When are our people to deal with the pain and the best outcome is for the righteous, so remain righteous remain God fearing. You see every single difficulty, whether it is big or small, our first response should be to think about Allah subhanaw taala That should be our first thought that Allah, you know, he or Allah, you heard, you know, Allah, you know what's happening, and then seek Allah's help by doing

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

something. What Southern Salah as we learned in South Africa, was there a new visibly was Salah.

00:35:00--> 00:35:53

At times we think that well, Allah knows what I'm going through. So why does he not remove this problem for me? Because you see, you have to make da, you have to worship Allah subhanaw taala. You see, through ease and through hardship, through your joys and through your pains, you are meant to turn to words, Allah subhanaw taala. This is the reason why we are afflicted with hardship. So, don't just sit there thinking that well, Allah knows what I'm going through know, make Dora, talk to him, seek help from him, ask him. And sometimes a person can feel so overwhelmed. That getting out of bed even can seem very, very daunting. So as you were laying down as the tears are rolling out or

00:35:53--> 00:36:42

not, just start talking to Allah. Start asking him for help. Is there a new biller, seek help from Allah, and then what's the rule and be patient. And remember, the first step of patience is to acknowledge your fears, to acknowledge your anxieties, because suburbia begins with acceptance, that you allow yourself to embrace the pain, the shock of what has come your way, you let it in, you don't resist it. And then you say, it'll lead to it'll be my Lord, I am pleased. Because as long as we are in denial, we are resisting, someone cannot come suburb can only come after we have accepted what what is happening. So what's below and be patient. And when a person approaches a difficulty

00:36:42--> 00:37:31

like this, then they can find the calm in the storm. Remember, Subbu endora doesn't mean that instantly your problems will go away, that you won't need to cry, and that your sadness will depart. But Subbu means that you will find moments of calm when you call upon Allah subhanaw taala it means that you will find those moments of calm, those serene moments where you will feel relief from your restlessness, the external change the change in your circumstances, of course that will come in it's due time. But because of suburb and girl, you will experience internal relief. So and remember that only when you are feeling that relief in your heart, when your heart is at ease, then you can think

00:37:31--> 00:38:17

rationally. So musala is Sam's advice over here is beautiful. He said Is there a new biller? He was Bill, seek help through a law and be patient. And this is something that perhaps we can also write down for ourselves as a reminder is 30 no Billa he was little, the bunny is slightly ill said we have been harmed before you came to us. And after you have come to us musasa was indeed hurt by his own people. You know, when people say rude things, yes, it hurts. But remember what the prophets had to face. They said tools are a salon, that you're coming has made no difference. Because before you came, we were being persecuted. And after you have come again, we are being persecuted Musashi as

00:38:17--> 00:39:04

Sam said, perhaps your Lord will destroy your enemy, and grant you succession in the land for young Zola. And then he will see how you will do. Meaning even when this problem is gone, your tested life will continue. It will just be a different kind of a test, but it will still be a test. So at times, we think that relief from a certain problem is the best thing for us. And yes, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for our fear. But the thing is that we don't realize that perhaps when the problem is gone, and we begin to enjoy our lives, we will become very corrupt in our actions, we will go even further away from Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah subhanaw taala in his mercy at times lengthens the

00:39:04--> 00:39:15

trial for us. Why? So that our actions may be good, because when we are paying, at least we think about Allah. And when things are good, generally, we tend to forget him very quickly.

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

And we certainly sees the people of fit our own with years of famine and a deficiency in fruits that perhaps they would be reminded another chance for fit our own. And you see fit our own didn't benefit from his setup from his good times. So he was given the raw hardship and they were given years, multiple years of famine that perhaps they would understand. And you see a data rahimullah he said that the mean the years of famine would affect the farmers. So the people in rural areas and noxa, Meena thammarat the deficiency in fruits that would affect the people of the cities, and sometimes it is like that, that certain calamities are not just local in certain areas.

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

But they're more widespread. Everyone is sharing that difficulty. Why lie Lumia that comun perhaps they would remember, they would remember their need of God, they would realize their sins. But when good came to them, they said, this is ours. As if you're finally it's about time, just like qarun said, that innama ot to Allah in that I was given all this wealth because of my knowledge, I deserve this. And if a bad condition struck them, they saw an evil Omen in Musashi Salaam and those with him. unquestionably, their fortune is with Allah, but most of them do not know. So we see here that when they got something good, they took credit. But when they suffered something a loss, immediately

00:40:50--> 00:41:38

they blamed masayoshi son and his people, scapegoating and marginalizing them even more. And we see that even today, for example, religious minorities, and certain ethnicities, they're scapegoated for various social and social and economic problems, and even individuals are guilty of this behavior. You see, scapegoating is a defense mechanism. And it's it's a way through which people deny, you know, their own guilt, how by projecting responsibility and blame on other people. And when they do this, it allows them to distract themselves from negative feelings about themselves. And it also allows them to justify their aggression against those whom they are blaming. And this is what Finn

00:41:38--> 00:42:23

our own and his people did. We'll call mama attack Tina became an 18 litres Helen Abby, her former nanny Lockerbie meaning, and they said, no matter what sign you bring us with, they said, no matter what sign you bring us with which to bewitch us, we will not be believers in you. So they had already made up their mind that they were not going to believe. So we sent upon them the flood, flood which destroyed their homes, and locusts, which destroyed their harvest their food supplies, and lice. So imagine how disgusting it would be that there's lice everywhere on everybody, and frogs, so there was no peace and quiet and blood, it is said that they had incessant nosebleeds. So

00:42:23--> 00:43:06

constant discomfort. All of these were sent upon them as distinct signs, not all at the same time, but separately, one after the other, so that perhaps they would learn, but did they learn? Did they reflect, but they were arrogant, and were criminal people. And when the punishment descended upon them, they said, almost Invoke for us, your Lord, by what he has promised you. Amazing. They didn't humble themselves. They didn't make their themselves. They said you invoke your Lord. If you can remove the punishment from us, we will surely believe you, and we will send with you the children of Israel. But when we remove the punishment from them, until a term which they were to reach, then at

00:43:06--> 00:43:49

once they broke their word, they returned to their old ways of naming home. So we took retribution from them, and we drowned them in the sea, because they denied our signs. And we're heedless of them. So why were they drowned? Because of their technique, their denial, and what can or unhealed love feeling because of their love, love? And love law is to be oblivious to be heedless of remembering something, to basically forget about something? Why? Because it's not important to you. So this was there a version, a version from the signs of Allah? If you think about it, how could a person ever forget something like this? Imagine, you know, all of these things that are mentioned

00:43:49--> 00:44:36

over here, the flood, and the locusts and the lice and the frogs and the blood you need? How can a person ever forget an experience like that in their lives, but they forgot about it? Why? What does this mean, they didn't learn anything from it, they didn't really care. And this is something that we need to think about. That in every person's life, you know, they experience some kind of hardship in the past, you know, a moment where they really felt overcome by their circumstances, and then a lost pounds on a brings them out. So don't forget those episodes from your life. Remember the lessons that those trials taught to you. Don't forget about them, don't ignore them. Don't be loving

00:44:37--> 00:44:59

towards them. And we cause the people who had been oppressed who the bunny is saw Eve to inherit the eastern regions of the land and the western ones, which we had blessed. And this is the land of Philistine and the good word. The promise of your Lord was fulfilled for the children of Israel Eve, because of what they had patiently endured upon the law. This is the reward

00:45:00--> 00:45:51

Southern, they were told is their inability was biru. So they had hope they were patient. And remember where alum and inositol na sub, the help of Allah comes with your patience and we destroyed all that fit our own and his people were producing and what they had been building and it's amazing how their their remains stand till today their buildings, their writings, their their records, all of that is there, but it is useless. It's all a mystery. All of their techniques are lost how they built those pyramids, we don't know about it. He all of that just last winter was nappy Bunny is saw Elan behera and we took the children of Islam across the sea. Then they came upon a people intent in

00:45:51--> 00:46:41

devotion to some idols of theirs. And I imagine some people who are very devoted to their idols and it looks very It seems as though they're there's so much at peace and it looks so nice to see people you know worshipping so dedicated. So they said oh Bossa make for us. Oh, God, just as they have Gods as the hospital. They said, We want an idle busara Sam said in Coleman Elune. Indeed, your people behaving ignorantly. Because the real ignorance, the greatest ignorance is to not know Allah subhanaw taala. Who is Allah, the One who created us, the one who owns us, the one who provides or is the one who rescues us from all our predicaments. We think it was a medication, we think it was a

00:46:41--> 00:47:28

doctor, we think it was a therapist, they were a means and their effect only came about by the will of Allah. Allah is the one who created those means, and who provided those means to you, and enable those means to work for you. So now that everything is good, you will forget him. This is Jen. This is the height of ignorance. And this is why associating partners with the lies the greatest injustice, because he is the one who created us. So it makes no sense to worship someone else. So he said in a compound, saloon. And this shows us that the ignorant people blindly follow others. Remember, every trend is not worth following. Just because you see something online, it doesn't mean

00:47:28--> 00:48:10

that you also have to do it. Be conscious and careful as to what you choose to do. And what you choose to say. Indeed, those worshipers destroyed is that in which they're engaged, and worthless is whatever they were doing, meaning this ship of theirs, this worship of theirs is not going to help them at all. He said Is it other than Allah, I should desire for you as a god, while he has preferred you over the world's a lot preferred you Allah chose you, he saved you, and you choose someone else. And recall or children of Islam, when we saved you from the people of our own, who were afflicting you with the worst torment, killing your sons and keeping your women alive. And in

00:48:10--> 00:48:22

that was a great trial from your Lord. The torture was from our own, but it was actually a trial from Allah. And that means that only a lock and remove that tribulation.

00:48:23--> 00:49:10

And we made an appointment with Moosa for 30 nights and perfected them by the addition of 10. So the term of his Lord was completed as 40 nights. masala Salaam was taken away from his nation, away from the bunny is hide away from everything, why, to the mountain? This is where the meeting was, and why was he taken over there to learn the book of Allah. The thing is, to learn the book of Allah, we need to focus on the book of Allah. And for that, we have to isolate ourselves, at least for some time, to allow the book of a lot to sink in. You deserve this from yourself to spend time with the book of Allah, just you and the Quran and nothing else. And for that it is important that you cut

00:49:10--> 00:49:45

off all the distractions, sometimes what we do is that we are listening to the Quran, or we are reading the Quran, but then we also have the chat open and we're reading every comment and we're reading every, you know, text message that is coming, we're going to our Instagram feed. I mean, how is it that the Quran will sink in if you're so distracted? So I would advise you that even now, as you're spending time listening to the Quran, make sure that you have the translation of the Quran open in front of you so that you can follow along. Because when you listen with your ears, and you read yourself, you need the Quran will have a greater impact on you. And if you don't have the

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

translation available to you, you're listening online right now you can always go to court calm and open up the translation from there, so follow along. Don't Don't get distracted. So what happened when moosari has said I'm left massages and I'm said to his brother Hello

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

Because he was going for so long, that take my place among my people will say, Listen, I'm didn't leave them on their own, he appointed a guardian for them because he knew that there were so gullible. And he said, do right by them, and do not follow the way of the corrupters. This was his parting advice, that keep fixing things meant solve problems. And when people make mistakes, guide them and if they insist in their corruption, then do not follow them learn to ignore them. And when Musashi is Sam arrived at our appointed time, and his Lord spoke to him, what can lemma hula boo soprano law? He said, My Lord, show me yourself that I may look at you in this was the love and the

00:50:43--> 00:51:25

eagerness that most artists and I'm had. Because you see, when you love someone you want to see them? Why is it that we FaceTime because we want to see our loved ones, right? Mozart has sent him a love spoke to him, and that any it increased him in his yearning in his eagerness for Allah subhanaw taala. So he requested that you know what, if Allah allowed me to speak to him, perhaps he will allow me to see him. So Allah subhanaw taala said, you will not see me but look at the mountain. If it should remain in place, then you will see me but when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He manifested His glory upon it, he rendered it level, the entire mountain crushed, and Musa alayhis

00:51:25--> 00:52:16

salam fell unconscious. And then when he awoke, he said, subhanak Exalted are You to go to a lake I have repented to you, and I am the first of the believers. You see, the mountain uni so huge, so solid and compact, it was unable to bear any, just any Allah subhanaw taala He manifested His glory upon the mountain, the mountain could not bear it. So what do you think about the human being, we learned a narration of the Prophet sallallahu Ortiz and recited this ayah and then any in the narration, we learn one of the narrator's indicating how much of those panels are shown his light upon the mountain. And it was just me it was expressed by any the tip of the finger So just imagine

00:52:16--> 00:53:04

any the tip of the finger just a little bit. And what happened to the mountain, it collapsed, it broke and musalla center fell unconscious, and look at his humility, that when he got up, he, he said, I should not even have made this request. Subhana Allah you are perfect. Paula yamasa, Allah said, obasa I have chosen you over the people with my messages and my words to you. So take what I have given you and be among the grateful. Remember that seeing Allah subhanaw taala This is a privilege and a reward that is reserved for the hereafter. And this is a privilege and a reward that will supersede any other reward. Any it will supersede any other pleasure.

00:53:05--> 00:53:15

This is why we should ask Allah subhanaw taala as a new can lead that another Li illogic that Oh Allah, I ask you for the pleasure of looking at your face.

00:53:17--> 00:53:23

Give me that privilege by allowing me to see you because when you love someone you want to see them.

00:53:25--> 00:54:12

So we see in this IML LS powder reminded Musalia scenario of the fact that most artists have had been chosen. How over the rest of the people with my messages and my words because a Les Brown Tara spoke to him. And this was truly an honor. So what was it that musasa was supposed to do? We'll come for hoodman Take a look. We'll come in a shackling take what I have given you and be among the Grateful This is the mark of religiosity, gratitude and emote, express exercise gratitude, what could have been Allah who feel unwell. And we wrote for him on the tablets, something of all things, instruction and explanation for all things, saying, Take them with determination for whom have you

00:54:12--> 00:54:41

COVID-19 take these teachings with determination meaning with the strength of heart with firm resolve, because that is what brings consistency in actions. Remember, when there's weakness and the intention, then there is weakness in the actions as well. So for hold the habit covert in an order your people to take the best of it, because all of the commands of Allah are good, but some are best and we should aim for the best because then we will also do the good.

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

I will show you the home of the defiantly disobedient I will turn away from my signs those who are arrogant upon the earth without right. So remember, the arrogant are not gifted with the guidance with the guidance of Allah soprano tada and this is a severe

00:55:00--> 00:55:17

mourning, and this arrogance can be towards people and it can also be towards a loss of avatar. What is arrogance? The Prophet sallallahu wasallam defined it as a thought and help will humbleness. It is to reject the truth. And it is to belittle, people look down on them, that they're not worthy.

00:55:18--> 00:55:36

And if they should see every sign, they will not believe in it. And if they see the way of consciousness, rectitude, righteousness, they will not adopt it as a way, but if they see the way of error, they will adopt it as a way that is because they have denied our signs and they were heedless of them.

00:55:38--> 00:56:22

We're lilina because there will be a a Tina, what do you call it? Have you thought? To whom those who denied our signs and the meeting of the hereafter their deeds have become worthless? Are they recompensed except for what they used to do? So why how does this begin because of arrogance. So we see that arrogance is something that deprives a person of guidance in this life and success in the hereafter. It is said Leonardo l'oeil Maha Yun when I'm stuck between the person who is too shy, and the person who is too arrogant, cannot learn. Whoever cannot bear the humility of learning for an hour will remain in the humility of ignorance forever.

00:56:23--> 00:57:10

What the other call Moosa mimbar the human holy him, and the people of Musa made after his departure from their ornaments, a calf and image having a lowing sound, did they not see that it could neither speak to them nor guide them to a way they took it for worship simply because when the wind blew through it, it produced a sound and it was made of gold. They took it for worship, and they were wrongdoers, and when regret overcame them, and they saw that they had gone astray. They said, if our Lord does not have mercy upon us and forgive us, we will surely be among the loot among the losers. Well, I'm not Roger Moosa, either call me he'll burn a sefa. And when Moosa returned to his people,

00:57:10--> 00:57:58

this was after 40 nights, how? How was his reaction? What was his response? He was angry and grieved when he saw his people worshipping the idol. He said, How wretched is that by which you have replaced me after my departure? Were you impatient over the matter of your Lord. You see, the bunny is sloppy. They couldn't wait for Musa alayhis salaam to return they became impatient, and they made the calf, sometimes waiting can be very hard for people. So they take matters in their own hands, and then they start causing more damage than good. It is very, very important that we respect the time, the the agenda, you know, the the destined period that Allah subhanaw taala has decided for

00:57:58--> 00:58:43

different things. Because if we become impatient, then we will actually cause more damage. You know, for example, because of the lockdown some people, they're, they're being very hasty. They don't want to stay in lockdown anymore. And as we become impatient, and we go out and we go meet people, and then we go to public places, and we continue with our public gatherings, this is something that will cause more damage than good. So, it is necessary to be patient with the decree of Allah. Now, hastiness is something that is very, very detrimental, even if it is for a good reason, it is still not justified, one is sort of out solara is to be prompt to be on time, and that is excellent, but

00:58:43--> 00:59:24

the other is Arjuna to be impatient and to do things before their designated time. For example, praying before the time enters right or breaking your fast before the time enters. So this kind of Argento this kind of hastiness is from shaitan in Hades we learnt calmness and tranquility is from Allah and hastiness is from shaitan. But the person who is prompt, then, of course, they get more reward compared to those who delay. For example, we learned in the Hadees, that those who come on time for Salatu. Juma, then their reward is much greater compared to the reward of those people who come at the last moment.

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

And he threw down the tablets, Mozart, Islam was so angry, he threw down the tablets and seized his brother by the hair of his head, pulling him toward him. Well, sorry, Sam was clearly angry, not for his own sake, but for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and the prophets of Allah were like that I shall deliver on her said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never took revenge for himself, but he would take revenge for the sake of Allah. How long are you sad? I'm sad, oh, son of my mother. Indeed. The people oppressed me and we're about to kill me. So let not the enemies rejoice.

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

Over Me and do not place me among the wrongdoing people, meaning I tried to stop them, but how much could I have done? They would have killed me. And then he says that do not, do not let the enemies rejoice over me, meaning if you punish me, and if you treat me like this, then my enemies are going to laugh over me. And this is something that we should seek protection against. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Dara will be let he seek refuge with Allah mindjet little better from the difficulties of severe calamities well done okay shopkart from having an evil and was so ill Cabo and a bad fate wish Amanda till Arda and from the malicious joy of enemies are a little bit

01:00:45--> 01:01:29

fiddly when he or he was sorry, Sam said, My Lord, forgive me and my brother, what other hidden field automatic and admit us into your mercy? What uncut or herbal Rahimi, for you are the Most Merciful of those who show mercy. So the believer turns to Allah in every situation. Indeed, those who took the calf for worship will obtain anger from their Lord and humiliation in the life of this world. And thus do We recompense the inventors of falsehood, but those who committed misdeeds and then repented after them and believed, indeed your Lord thereafter is Forgiving and Merciful. So mistakes will happen. But then with doba they will also be forgiven. And when the anger subsided in

01:01:29--> 01:02:15

Masada is silent. He took up the tablets, he picked them up. He wasn't arrogant over here that oh, I had thrown I put them down earlier. Why should I pick them up? No, he took them up. He picked them up, and in their inscription was guidance and mercy for those who are fearful of their Lord. Notice guidance and mercy for who little levina, whom near a billion euro harpoon. So remember, the good of the world and of the hereafter depends on the fear of Allah. The more a person fears Allah, the more benefit they will receive from Allah, and musala salaam chose from his people, 17 men for our appointment, they were taken to seek forgiveness on behalf of the entire nation. And when the

01:02:15--> 01:02:53

earthquake sees them, because when they got there, they demanded to see a light. Instead, we'll say Elisa Lam prayed. He said, My Lord, if you had willed, you could have destroyed them before me as well. Would you destroy us for what foolish for what the foolish among us have done? This was a request, that that only Yeti, he's he's asking Allah subhanaw taala that only some people made this demand, everyone did not ask to see you. In so pardon us. And we see over here that sometimes it happens that a whole group is destroyed because of the crimes of some people.

01:02:54--> 01:03:30

We learn in a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu or Hassan mentioned that an army will read the Kaaba, and when it reaches a desert land, all of them will be swallowed up by the earth. So I shall do more on how to ask the messenger below why all of them because everyone is not the same in their level of guilt and crying. So he answered, all of them will be swallowed by the earth, but they will be raised for judgment according to their intentions. So sometimes we say things like, oh, but what about the animals and, you know, the innocent children, innocent children, especially, What crime did they commit, you don't need to worry about it. Allah subhanaw taala is more merciful than we

01:03:30--> 01:04:18

are. This is not but your trial, by which you send this tray whom you will and guide whom you will remember, every trial is like that some people increase in their guidance because of it, and other people decrease. You are our protector. So forgive us and have mercy upon us. And you are the best of the forgivers work to blend if he had he dunia has Anna Warfield Pharaoh and decree for us in the world, that which is good, and also in the hereafter. Indeed, we have turned back to you. Allah said, My punishment, I afflict with it whom I will, but my mercy encompasses all things. What are hemmati was the article lashay so I will create, especially for those who fear me and gives a cat

01:04:18--> 01:04:59

and those who believe in our vs. So if we want the mercy of Allah, permanently, any in the hereafter as well, then we have to do these things. And what else do they do? Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Injeel the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had many traits, but why is the fact that he was only unlettered dimensioned over here, because the bunny is what you really look down on the on the unlettered people on the people who never had any scripture before. And Allah subhanaw taala sent His messenger among them, and almost Pousada gave his omega

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

It knowledge which was not even with the people of the book. So Allah has mercy will be for those who believe in and Nebbiolo me, the messenger is He Who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. You see, the People of the Book were burdened by religious obligations and restrictions. And you think about how difficult the Sabbath was, how good foods were made unlawful for them, and this was a recompense for their own wrongdoing. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was sent with a new law, the goal of which was

01:05:44--> 01:06:26

to create ease. This is why he said I was not sent with Judaism or Christianity, but I was sent with the religion of monotheism, the easy one, and the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam like to create ease for his oma, this is the reason why he did not establish the mo ln in the month of Ramadan in the masjid, out of fear that it would become obligatory and imagine if it was obligatory. How hard every single day and night of Ramadan would be for us right now, even though he wanted that people should clean their mouths before Salah he did not make miswak compulsory in will do. Why? Because it is hard for people to have to do miswak in every world.

01:06:27--> 01:07:13

So they who have believed in him, honored him supported him and follow the light, which was sent down with him. It is those who will be the successful, Kalia yohannes say oh mankind in Neela sudo la la caja Meera indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you all. every prophet was sent to his nation only, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to all people, as he said Weber is to enter nursey Kapha I was sent to all of mankind. I am the messenger of Allah to you all. To Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth meaning this is Allah The one who has sent me he owns everything. There is no deity except Him. He gives life and causes death. So believe in Allah

01:07:13--> 01:07:44

and His Messenger the unlettered prophet who believes in Allah and His words and follow Him that you may be guided. So remember, people's salvation is in believing and following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we don't have the Hadees that by him in whose hand is the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he who amongst the community of Jews or Christians hears about me, but does not affirm his belief in that with which I have been sent with and dies in that state of disbelief, that he shall be of the people of the fire.

01:07:45--> 01:07:47

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

01:07:48--> 01:08:22

Someone once said to him, good news for the one who sees you and believes in you, meaning we are truly fortunate that we believe in you and we have met you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Good news for the one who sees me and believes in me, but good news, and more good news and more good news for the one who believes in me, but has not seen me. And another time he said, I wish I could meet my brothers. The companion said, Are we not your brothers, he said, You are my companions. My brothers are those who will believe in me without seeing me.

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

Women call me Musa automaton. And among the people of Musa is a community which guides by truth, and by it establishes justice, and we divided them into 12 descendant tribes as distinct nations. And we inspire to Moosa when his people implored him for water, strike with your staff, the stone and their gushed forth from it. 12 Springs, and this was a miracle. Every people knew its watering place, so organized so that people won't fight over water. And we shaded them with clouds and sent down upon them, man and son were saying, eat from the good things with which we have provided you and they wronged us not, but they were only wronging themselves, Allah opened his blessings upon them, but

01:09:08--> 01:09:29

through their ingratitude and their heedlessness, their blessings were taken away, and mentioned when it was said to them, dwell in the city and eat from it wherever you will, and say, relieve us of our burdens, and enter the gate bowing humbly, we will then forgive you your sins, we will increase the doors of good meaning we will give them even more reward.

01:09:30--> 01:10:00

But those who wronged among them, change the words to a statement other than that which had been set to them. So we sent down upon them a punishment from the sky for the wrongs that they were doing, and ask them about the town that was by the sea, when they transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath, when their fish came to them openly under Sabbath day. And the day they had no Sabbath. They did not come to them. Does did we give them trial because they were defiantly disobedient. So remember, disobedience

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

Brings roadblocks, obstacles, Hitman deprivation of risk, this restriction was given to them. Why? Because of their disobedience. Because when people are repeatedly irresponsible and disobedient, then you have to be more strict with them. stricter measures are needed. But what did they do? They resorted to cheating. So they would put their nets in on Friday, and take them out on Sunday. So what happened? And when a community among them said, Why do you advise or warn people who Allah is about to destroy, or to punish with a severe punishment, they meaning the advisor said, to be absolved before your Lord, and perhaps they may fear Him. And when they forgot that by which they

01:10:44--> 01:11:30

had been reminded, we saved those who had forbidden evil, and sees those who were who wronged with a wretched punishment, because they were defiantly disobeying. So when they were insolent about that which they had been forbidden, we said to them, be a despised. So remember, those who tried to deceive Allah, who cheat Allah, such people can never be successful. And we see here that out of all the three different groups, those who those who transgressed regarding the Sabbath, those who stopped them from it, and those who just prefer to mind their own business, out of all the the three groups which one was saved, the second one, those who stopped the transgressors. This is why it is

01:11:30--> 01:12:13

important, that we continue to speak the truth, even if people don't want to accept it, and mentioned when your Lord declared that he would surely continue to descend upon them until the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with the worst torment. Indeed, your Lord is swift and penalty, but indeed, he is Forgiving and Merciful. And we divided them throughout the earth into nations, of them somewhere righteous, and all of them somewhere otherwise would have been, oh, now whom bill has an earth he was say he at, and we tested them with good times and bad, why are loomio Jeroen that perhaps they would return? So the purpose of a trial is to bring us back to Allah. And

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

there followed them successors, who inherited the Scripture, while taking the commodities of this lower life, meaning they would take bribes from their people, and they would sell fatawa they will change the love of Scripture, in exchange for money. And they will justify that by saying, it will be forgiven for us. And if and if an offer like it comes to them, they will again take it meaning, even though they say, say you falana they go back to the same sin, they returned to the sin. So think about it. If you believe that forgiveness is required for a deed, then that means it's a sin. So how could you return to it knowingly, was not the covenant of the Scripture taken from them, that

01:12:55--> 01:13:43

they would not say about Allah except the truth, and they studied what was in it, and the home of the Hereafter is better for those who fear Allah. So will you not use reason, when livina uma scicluna, Bill keytab, but those who hold fast to the book must second is to grab, to grab something, to, to hold on to something, to not let go of it. Any to, to hold on to it consistently until the very end. Over and over again, they hold fast to the book of Allah, they recite it again and again, they reflected the act by it, and they establish prayer. Indeed, we will not allow to be last the reward of the reformers, these people are rightly guided, who hold on to the book of Allah,

01:13:43--> 01:14:26

and mentioned when we raised the mountain above them, as if it was a dark cloud, and they were certain that it would fall upon them. And Allah said, take what we have given you with determination. And remember, what is it that you might fear Allah? What is a hurdle of becoming Benny Adam amin loogootee, Hamza reata, whom, what a shadow whom Allah and forcing him as to be able to become and mentioned when your Lord took from the children of Adam, from their loins, their descendants, and made that testify of themselves, saying to them, Am I not your Lord? They said, Yes, but a shahida. Now, yes, we have testified this, lest you should say on the Day of

01:14:26--> 01:14:54

Resurrection, indeed we were of this unaware, or lest you say, it was only that our fathers associated others in worship with Allah before, and we were but descendants after them, then would you destroy us for what the faults of fires have done? And thus do We explain in detail the verses and perhaps they will return? So here, a very important incident is mentioned and that is our honest and we learn about it only from the Quran from the revelation

01:14:56--> 01:14:59

that all the souls that are to come until the day of God

01:15:00--> 01:15:47

were produced at the same time and allow us panel to ask them, Am I not your Lord? And all of them, including you? And I? We said yes. The question is, how did they know what they had not even learned at that time when nonprofits and revelation had been given as of yet because this was before otherwise Sudan was sent to the world. How is it that we knew that Allah is our Lord, when no Prophet told us when no revelation was given to us, because Allah subhanaw taala has already put this in our very nature. This is in our fitrah, the innate nature of human beings to submit to Allah subhanaw taala. So without Allah, even teaching us we know that we should surrender to Allah. This

01:15:47--> 01:16:36

is what we were created upon, it is in our very nature, before the nurture. So remember, our nature is not that of a blank state of a blank slate. That's not how we come into this world. No, we come into this world upon fitrah. You see, when Allah subhanaw taala created Adam or his sin, and he put the room into him, and the room in other medicinal started to come alive starting from the head down. So when it reached his nose, he sneezed. And he said, Alhamdulillah, how did other listener know Alhamdulillah. So this is our nature. This is how Allah subhanaw taala has created us. And then on top of that, he also took a pledge from us. So it will claim said that the fitrah is the soil

01:16:37--> 01:17:03

which is any fertile, and the seed is Islam. So the soil alone is not enough. And the seed, any alone also is not enough. You need both. Allah subhanaw taala has created as upon the fifth law, the innate nature to submit to Allah. And then when people learn about the Quran about the message of the prophets, then what happens when they accept Islam? Then the tree of Eman is complete.

01:17:05--> 01:17:58

What Who are they who never led attina who is Tina, and recite to them the news of him to whom we gave knowledge of our signs fun Salah humming Ha. But he detached himself from them for at the bar who shaved on so shaitan pursued him for catamenial Halloween, and he became of the dva eaters, because shaytaan misled him. Even after learning. The whispers of shame pawn can remove a person can take a person far away from the truth. This is the story of a scholar of a knowledgeable person whose heart became filled with the love of the world. So what did he do? He left the Ayat of Allah and began pursuing the dunya. So remember, leaving the Ayat of Allah and pursuing the dunya The

01:17:58--> 01:18:46

world is shaped Pani Yo, this is a satanic act, not following the ayat. Despite knowledge is the it shows that a person is under the influence of shape time. And if a person does not free himself of it, then what will happen shaitan will keep leading him until eventually a person will go far astray. So it is very important that we act on what we know that we don't detach ourselves from the Quran, from the Ayat of Allah, it is not enough to just know to have information of what the Quran says. It is important to be true people have knowledge that this quote on this knowledge becomes a part of our lives, our actions, because if, if that doesn't happen, then shale Khan's influences

01:18:46--> 01:18:49

there and then champon will lead the way.

01:18:50--> 01:19:34

And if we had willed, We could have elevated him thereby meaning through the verses of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala could have given this person, a lot of the jack in the world also, because the Koran is mobarak we're in the hula veeco laka welive komik. It is a source of greatness. We learned that there was a man at the time of Romano de la Moran, who even observed he was a slave. He was once upon a time a slave, but because he was very knowledgeable in the Quran, the leader of Makkah, actually appointed him as the leader in his absence. Subhana Allah, the Quran is a source of honor. When a sheep now a lot of foreigner who Bihar but what did he do? He adhered in step to the earth

01:19:34--> 01:19:59

and followed his own desire, instead of abiding by what he knew. He gave preference to his base desires. A lot of lowering himself. A lot could have raised him high, but this person brought himself low. So remember, for armor, we need rain, and we also need the right company. We also need the right people around us because sometimes we know we

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

What right is what we should do, but we don't have the courage or we forget or the influence of shaitan is there. So when you surround yourself with the right people, whether it is virtually or physically when you surround yourself with the right people, then this is a means of staying on the straight path. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said adhere to the Congregation for the wolf eats only the straggling animal. So his example is like that of the dog. If you chase him, he pants or if you leave him, he still pants, you see a dog pants all the time, whether it is cold, or hot, night or day, whether it is hungry or not thirsty or not. Why? Because that is how a dog's body

01:20:47--> 01:21:36

temperature is regulated. panting helps a dog cool down. But when the dog is constantly panting, in the sense that the tongue is always out of the mouth, it appears as though it's always hungry and greedy for more. That is the example of the people who denied our signs. So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought. So this is how this person is endlessly greedy, regardless of his circumstances, like the dog who is always panting, night day, easy situation or difficult, always greedy for more. So this is the person who leaves the eye out of Allah turns away from them, reject them, whether you warn him or you don't warn him, his greed for the world blinds him. And even

01:21:36--> 01:22:25

though there may be moments where he gets it, he's still overcome by his greed. This is why the greed for this dunya is one of the most dangerous things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to hungry wolves, sent in the midst of a flock of sheep are no more destructive to them, than a man's greed for wealth and fame is to his religion. So this greed needs to be controlled. How evil An example is that of the people who denied our signs and use to wrong themselves. Maria de la hufa hu l mu d, whoever Allah guides, he is the rightly guided and whoever he sends us tray, it is those who are the losers. And We have certainly created for how many of the jinn and mankind meaning they

01:22:25--> 01:23:11

will certainly end up in hell. Why? Because the home kulu bhulaiyaa Kahuna beha. They have hearts with which they do not understand why their hearts are enamored with the world. So why would they think about the offer? Why would they think about the deen they have eyes with which they do not see and they have ears with which they do not hear. They do have these faculties but they don't use them. They're like a neuron like livestock. But their lives are just a little fancier compared to those of livestock, because essentially, they're doing the same thing, feeding their bodies procreating and living for as long as possible and then close. Rather, they are more astray. Why are

01:23:11--> 01:23:39

they more stray than livestock even because livestock still recognize their owner. So Pinilla any these animals know who brings them food, who takes them out to pasture, and then they follow their owner? Right? They follow the shepherd, and they understand what is good for them and what is bad for them. But people who fail to use the faculties that are lost pronto has given them

01:23:40--> 01:24:25

any, they're worse than animals because they don't recognize their owner. They don't recognize Allah subhanaw taala they don't listen to they don't obey Allah subhanaw taala it is the who are the heedless. Animals actually can be amazing. You can train a dog and it will be very loyal, you can raise a lion and it will show you so much love. But people who reject their Lord, the one who owns them, sustains them guides them. If they ignore him turn away from him, then definitely such people are worse than animals will allow him to smell we'll have snacks for the room will be here and to belong to the best names so invoke him by them and leave the company of those who practice deviation

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

concerning His names. They will be recompense for what they have been doing. Allah's names are truly husana they're beautiful, they sound good, and they also have a deep impact on the heart, just listening to them is so comforting and their meanings are also excellent. So call upon him by his names. This means Firstly, praise him by his names in the record in such the when you humble yourself Subhan Allah Bian are Allah that my lord is an arleigh, the highest soprano bill alim. He is the greatest

01:25:00--> 01:25:47

So praise Allah through his names. Secondly, this includes that when you make daura, then do so by mentioning the names that are relevant to your condition. Allah inika or alpha one, or Allah indeed you are who you love to part of. So far foreign nice. Oh, pardon me. And then thirdly, this means that worship Him in a way that His name's demand from you. So Allah subhanaw taala is a web that he is the acceptor of repentance that make Toba repented to him, this is not just for you to know, but to do. But all this is only possible when we know his names and we understand them. in Hades, we learned that whoever encompasses the 99 Names of Allah, then he will enter Jannah and what does it

01:25:47--> 01:26:29

mean by encompassing the names of Allah, it means believing in them, learning them, understanding them, using them saying them, reciting them when a person is making law and worshipping a lie in a manner that the names necessitate. And those people who do it had in his names, who commit deviation in his names, whether it is that they deny them or they change them, or they give a lot names that he does not have than such people. You should not be like them. Leave them when we met Hakuna Matata, Yeah, dude, I will help will be here, The Loon. And among those we created is a community which guides by truth and thereby establishes Justice illustrata praises them here. But those who

01:26:29--> 01:27:14

deny our signs, we will progressively lead them to destruction from where they do not even know send us that residual boom, progressively. This is the lodge that a person has taken towards destruction, step by step so gradually that they don't even realize and how does this happen? This is when Shay Pon beautifies a person's sins for him. So he thinks what he's doing is really good. And because of that he will never repent. Or this is when a person is diluted by the presence of blessings. So he thinks God must be happy with me. I am doing what is right, because if there was a god, I would be punished for my denial. And so he remains distracted because of his blessings he carries on in his

01:27:14--> 01:27:54

deviance send us the degree to whom in Hazel iarla Moon and I will give them time. Indeed my plan is firm, then do they not give thought there isn't their companion meeting Hambleton Allahu alayhi wa sallam no madness, he is not but a clear Warner? Do they not look into the realm of the heavens and the earth? This is an invitation to reflect and everything that Allah has created and think that perhaps their appointed time has come near. So in what statement hereafter? Will they believe if they don't believe in the Quran, then what is it that's going to convince them? Whoever Allah sends us trade, there is no guide for him. And he leaves them in their transgression wandering blindly,

01:27:54--> 01:28:33

they ask you a prophet about the hour, a yen mo Sahar, when is its arrival, but this is not a beneficial question. A man asked the prophets on the local radio send them that when will the hour be? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him What have you prepared for it? So this is what our concern should be also, not when is the day of judgment going to be, but what are we preparing for it? Some people are obsessed with the signs of the day of judgment and everything strange that happens in the world is a sign of the Day of Judgment for them. So they think that because of the Coronavirus now the jail is coming out anytime, okay. All right. Yes, the hour is

01:28:33--> 01:29:17

coming. The signs of the Day of Judgment are real, they will occur. But instead of being obsessed with the time that the that the day of judgment will occur, we should be concerned about preparing for it. So they ask you about the hour. When is its arrival say it's knowledge is only with my Lord, none will reveal its time except him. it leans heavily upon the heavens and the earth, it will not come upon you except unexpectedly. They ask you as if you are familiar with it. So they would keep asking him again and again. Say it's knowledge is only with Allah, no one else but most of the people do not know remember when the Prophet when when to be asked the Prophet sallallahu

01:29:17--> 01:29:59

radiocentre about when the hour is, he said the one who is being asked, Does not even does not know any better than the one who is being asked meaning you and I are the same when it comes to our ignorance of the time of the day of judgment. For law I'm legally enough's enough I'm allowed the raw say oh Prophet, I hold not for myself the power of benefit or harm, except what Allah has willed. So remember, good comes from Allah, and evil can only be prevented by Allah. Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not have any power regarding this

01:30:00--> 01:30:06

A man once said to the Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, whatever you will and whatever alone, whatever Allah wills and what you will.

01:30:07--> 01:30:17

And he said, Did you make me an equal to Allah. And he don't even say that in your speech is only what Allah wills in law, Masha Allah.

01:30:18--> 01:31:01

And if I knew the unseen, I would have acquired much wealth, and no harm would have touched me. I am not except to Warner and the bringer of good tidings to people who believe it is He Who created you from one soul and created from it, it's meat, that he might dwell in security with her. So remember, the relationship between that between the husband and the wife is meant to be a relationship of sukoon. So maintain that respect that, but but for it, somebody is required. Otherwise, through our impatience, we can turn our homes into help. And when he covers her, she carries a light burden and continuous dairy. And when it becomes heavy, meaning her pregnancy progresses, they both invoke

01:31:01--> 01:31:46

Allah their Lord, that if you should give us a good child, we will surely be among the grateful. But when he gives them a good child, sound and healthy, they ascribe partners to him concerning that which he has given them. Exalted is Allah above what they associate with him, do they associate with him, those who create nothing, and they are themselves created, and the false deities are unable to give them help, nor can they help themselves. And if you invite them to guidance, they will not follow you. It is all the same for you, whether you invite them or you were silent, meaning they won't respond. Indeed, those you polytheists call upon besides Allah, are merely servants like you.

01:31:46--> 01:32:28

So how can you exalt another servant who was like you to such a high position? So call upon them and let them respond to you try it? If you should be truthful? Do they have feet by which they walk? Or do they have hands by which they strike? Or do they have eyes by which they see or do they have ears by which they hear you see here, the tools allowed to learn We're sorry, we're definitely Nussle in the tools the faculties of learning of movement and defense are mentioned over here. And this is something that we should really be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for that, yeah, Allah, you have given me the ability to use my hands or to move about and even sometimes, you know, if a person has

01:32:28--> 01:33:16

a health issue, or a disability, that handed in love for, for technology, that you don't even have to move your hands at times, all you need to do is just give a command to Siri or Alexa and she'll set a reminder for you. So any what a what a blessing these things are the ability to hear the ability to see all of these abilities whether a person has many or some every single faculty that we have is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala that we should use, we should use for learning good things for doing good things as much as we are capable. say oh profit, meaning challenge them, call your partners and then conspire against me and give me no rest bite. Indeed, my protector is Allah who

01:33:16--> 01:34:01

has sent down the book and he is an ally to the righteous or who is Oh Allah slowly hain so how do you get the friendship of Allah? How do you prefer befriend Allah, how do you get his love by holding on to this book, by being righteous by doing the things that Allah subhanaw taala likes, and those you call upon besides him are unable to help you nor can they help themselves. And if you invite them to guidance, they do not hear and you see them looking at you while they do not see. So how to deal with such people could allow for take what is given freely or who also means pardon. So adopt pardon, meaning keep pardoning keep forgiving them keep overlooking their mistakes, enjoying

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

what is good, and turn away from the ignorant. And there is a beautiful incident that illustrates this verse. We learned that a man Rena and his son, his nephew and help in case was very knowledgeable in the Quran. And so he was close to a mono de la Mourinho because a multilevel moron who would have such people who were knowledgeable in the Quran around him a lot to be his advisors and to consult them etc. regardless of their age, so alone urban so Briana asked a horrible place that you know, you are close to her model de la Mourinho. I want to talk to Roman rhodiola horn who so asked him if I can come talk to him. So Herman place got that permission. And when Rena came, he

01:34:44--> 01:34:59

said, All son of Hata By Allah, you neither give us sufficient provision, nor judge among us with justice he accused or model de la maranoa being unjust and unfair. So Ramona pelajaran, who became very angry so much that he

01:35:00--> 01:35:47

into that he intended to punish Rena so unhealthy. He was knowledgeable in the Quran right? He said, Oh, a mutant meaning Allah said to His Messenger, who they laugh What, what mobiler odfi What are the new Jia Helene, and this man is of the Jay Haley. So pardon him. So he said that or model de la Horne who did not overlook this verse, When this verse was recited before him, and he observed the orders of Allah His book very strictly. So he didn't, he did not take revenge. He forgave Marina. Why? Because Rena said, what he said, however, is ignorance. And a lot of times it happens that people say ignorant things to you or about you. So what should you do? Just ignore, overlook, focus

01:35:47--> 01:36:33

on what you have to do focus on your work Don't get distracted. And if an evil suggestion comes to you from chez Pon, like what I can, negative thought it was was a whether it is about Allah or about other people, that suddenly you become very angry, then what should you do first there even be lower than seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, he is hearing and knowing in alladhina taco indeed those who fear Allah when an impulse touches them from shape on to the goal, they remember and at once they have insight. They recognize that this was fossa is from shavon sorry, the bungee bait said this is the person who gets very angry. But then he begins to make the cause until his anger subsides. So try

01:36:33--> 01:37:15

this when you get angry. Just start making the cut until you can cool down, which I had said this is the person who intends to do something wrong. But then he remembers Allah and changes his mind. So remember, shaitan is always trying to incite negative thoughts was was even shed on tries to interrupt the recitation of the Quran. interrupt our focus in Salah. So anytime there is an interruption from shaitan then seek refuge with Allah. Remember, the power of the name of Allah, it is so strong, that it keeps shaitan away. Yeah, here it is. Sam said that I order you to remember Allah. For the one who remembers Allah is like the one who is being pursued by an enemy, and he

01:37:15--> 01:37:42

takes shelter in a strong fort. So whenever a person remembers Allah, He saved from the attacks of shapeless. This is why Dora invaded his fortress of the believer and counter every negative thought with the vicar of Allah. In a Hadees we learned that whoever is afraid of the night or stingy to spend his money or week before an enemy than he should increase in saying Subhana Allah He will be handy he.

01:37:43--> 01:38:23

So these thoughts must be countered immediately. Don't allow yourself to dwell upon them because then they can become obsessive, and that it's very difficult to shake them off. But they're brothers meaning of shape off shape on the devil's increase them in error, then they do not stop short because they don't remember a lot. And when you do not bring them assign meaning a miracle as they demand they say, Why have you not contrived it, just make it up, say I only follow what is revealed to me from my lord, this put on his enlightenment from your Lord and guidance and mercy for people who believe an important instruction is not being given. So when the Quran is recited for you, then

01:38:23--> 01:39:06

listen to it and pay attention, that you may receive mercy. So two things are mentioned here. When the Quran is recited is demarre. Listen attentively, and then in slot remain quiet, don't talk, she has already said observing silence is in the apparent that a person should not talk or occupy himself with something that will distract him from listening to the Quran. And as for listening attentively than it is to be present with his listening to be attentive with his heart. So, listening attentively, is on the inside and insult is on the outside. And whoever observes these two rules, while the book of Allah is being recited, then such a person will receive the mercy of Allah.

01:39:06--> 01:39:51

So it is very important that we don't make the recitation of the Quran, like background noise. Because some people what they do is that they just start listening to the Quran, as background noise in order to study in order to read, or for example, it's just playing in the house and they're talking and they're, you know, doing other things. So listening to the Quran is very important. It is something enjoyable. Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved to listen to the Quran. But in order to receive mercy, by listening to the Quran, we have to observe a steamer and inside we have to be present on the outward and with our hearts, with good luck, if enough secret till the war

01:39:51--> 01:39:59

on workiva. And remember your Lord within yourself in humility and in fear without being a parent in speech in the mornings, and the

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

evenings and do not be among the heedless, Vicar endora is mentioned here. When when should it be done in the morning, and in the evening, and you see these days that you are home and You're up early, can develop this habit that in the morning, make sure you say your morning, morning, the hours and the same thing in the evening. But there are and because remember, it should be with humility and fear. And it should be both quietly and loud enough but not yelling. So it shouldn't be that you are reading daraz from your book, and you're frowning at your children at the same time, or you're yelling out Allahu Akbar, in Salah. If your kids do something naughty, the remembrance of

01:40:39--> 01:41:00

Allah should be remembrance of Allah. And it should be done in a manner that His Majesty deserves. So be attentive, and be humble, and develop a habit of making Vicodin drop in your heart and on your lips, Audible, whether it is audible, or it is quiet whispers

01:41:01--> 01:41:47

Indeed, those who are near your Lord are not prevented by arrogance from his worship, and they exalt Him and to him they prostrate, meaning the angels never stop worshiping Allah. And remember, in general, people will make the could as easily as one breeds. So, we should develop the habit of making beakers and make the kit in different ways. quietly, silently, loudly, in your heart on your tongue, different forms of the could the recitation of the Quran making Dora but you notice we had because as long as you remember Allah, Allah remembers you. Now, this ayah is the eye of such that due to our such that our is a such a lowering of oneself because of the recitation of a verse of the

01:41:47--> 01:42:23

Quran. And there are 15 verses in the Quran, where the prostration of recitation is required. Whether these Verses are recited in Salah or outside of Sunnah. It would almost said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to recite the Quran to us. And if you reached a verse where such that was prescribed, he would say Allahu Akbar, and make such that and we would do likewise, meaning we would follow him. So, Allahu Akbar when going into such that, you don't have to say a level but when getting up from such that level, unless you are in Salah. And there were times when the Sahaba they wouldn't even find the space to put their forehead on the ground. So they would just

01:42:23--> 01:43:04

lower Ben themselves wherever they were. And this shows us that we'll do is not required for such that the dollar because it is not part of Salah it is a such an act of humility that is required because of the recitation of a certain idea of the Quran. And we learnt in a hadith about how shaitan feels so upset, and he weeps when a person makes sajida because he says that war to me, the son of Adam was commanded to prostrate and he prostrated and paradise was for him, and I was told to make such and I refused and I am doomed to hell. But see how stubborn he is still doesn't repent. And when it comes to such a dilemma, what is it that you should say, you can say any prescribed they

01:43:04--> 01:43:42

could order that can be read in such the so you can see soprano bill Arla All right. And there are some there are others as well which we learn about which can be said specifically in such that in our, for example, Allah Homo fiddley be her 11 were hooked on ubia was run will definitely be her shukran with the Cabal harmony Kanata coupledom in arctica such that Oh, so when you recite this verse, or listen to its recitation, then make sure you do such that. We just read the translation. So we don't need to do this such that in our next surah Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim sola till and foul syllable and foul remember it was revealed concerning the Battle of better and unfair or the

01:43:42--> 01:44:26

spoils of war. And this was the first battle that the Muslim spot in the way of asthma, the day of the battle and but that is called the Yeoman foot on the day of criterion, because it made very clear as to who is untruth and who is not, the Muslims were only around 300 with one horse or two, and the machine their enemy were 1000 with over 300 horses. This battle was in the second year after the digital in the month of Ramadan. It was an unexpected battle, which brought an unexpected victory. The Muslims just showed up with whatever that they had. They put their trust in Allah and Allah subhanaw taala granted them success, and this victory brought many spoils of war. And when

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

there is money, even good people become weak. So what happened? The sooner begins with yes aluna carnal and fan. They ask you about the bounties meaning of war, that who gets it because before Islam, the custom was finders are keepers. So who gets a share of the war booty say the decision concerning bounties is for Allah and the messenger or the unfair, they actually belong to Allah and His messenger. So forget about the M file. This is not your problem. What you need to do is you

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

What you need to do is first duckula fear Allah will Asli who that are by Unicom and amend that which is between you, meaning Why are you fighting over money and obey Allah and His Messenger, if you should be believers. Remember, money is a fitna and even the most intelligent and reasonable people end up in arguments and fights over it. We learned about them in summit said that the pseudo was revealed regarding us who were at bothered when we differed over the distribution of the booty. And our luck was not appropriate in this regard. So a lot of this decision away from us. And then the Messenger of Allah says Allah what word instead of divided amongst the people fairly,

01:45:42--> 01:46:27

because you see what happened is that those who fought in the front forefront, they claimed that they had a greater right, and those who are defending from the back, they claim that they had a greater right, so who who gets what share? So before even the law is given, attention is brought to what is far more important than money? And what is that foot duckula will Asli who that of a nickel, mending relationships out of the fear of Allah. Remember, unity and love are more precious than any amount of wealth, even our basketball, Dylan Warren who said about this idea that this is an injunction from Allah to the believers to fear Allah and to put things right between them, put

01:46:27--> 01:46:40

things right between them. So it is not okay, if we are estranged from some of our relatives, blood relatives, or that there are people against whom we harbor enmity and hatred and bad feeling in our heart.

01:46:41--> 01:47:28

In the middle would mean alladhina either to Quito Lago or Judith kulu, whom the believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful. And when his Verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith and upon their Lord. They rely, as Sudhi said, this is the person who intends to do something wrong, or he intends to commit a sin. But when he is reminded that fear Allah, Allah, Allah as mentioned, he actually gets scared. So this is the state of the person who truly believes in Allah, that when Allah is mentioned, their heart moves, and then their actions also change when they hear their verses of the Quran, their Eman increases, and when the man will

01:47:28--> 01:48:12

increase when the heart has moved, then the actions will also change accordingly. This is why it is said, a Latina up bonus solid, the ones who established prayer women man was a canal who moon, moon, and from what We have provided them they spend, those are the believers, have God truly for them are degrees of high positions, higher high ranks with their Lord, and forgiveness and noble provision. It is just as when your Lord brought you out of your home. This was for the Battle of whether in truth, while indeed, a party among the believers were unwilling, they were hesitant. They weren't mentally ready for battle, arguing with you concerning the truth, after it had become clear, as if

01:48:12--> 01:48:56

they were being driven toward death while they were looking on. They were genuinely afraid. But remember, all believers when Allah promised you one of the two groups, because remember, there was the trade caravan, which the prophets of Allah what word is that I'm intended to intercept. But then the machine brought an army of 1000 men to defend their caravan. So a lot of promise to you one of the two groups that either you would gain victory over the enemy over the army, or the caravan, that it would be yours, and you wish that the unarmed one would be yours because it was easier, but Allah intended to establish the truth by his words, and to eliminate the disbelievers. SubhanAllah. So

01:48:56--> 01:49:39

often, it happens that we have the you know, we have two possibilities before us. And we want the easy option, right? Because we think that that would be better for us. But then circumstances are beyond our control. And we are literally thrown into a situation that we were actually trying to avoid, that we did not want at all. So remember, there is greater good for you in that if Allah subhanaw taala brought you to it, then there must be benefit for you with that, that he should establish the truth and abolish also, even if the criminals disliked it. Remember when you asked help of your Lord is that still he still not back home? Is the stilley sooner become when you asked

01:49:39--> 01:49:59

help of your Lord, it hasn't been said is that the rune when you were calling upon your Lord, but that's still the saloon because endora we should beg in desperation. So this is how the Muslims were calling upon Allah subhanaw taala How are model dylanglen who mentioned about how when the prophets of Allah

01:50:00--> 01:50:44

realism saw the enemy, there were so many of them. He faced the Qibla he stretched forth his hands, and he began calling upon Allah, or Allah fulfill what you promised me or Allah, if you destroy this band of adherence to Islam, you will not be worshipped upon the earth. And he continued making Dora with his hand stretched facing the Qibla until his upper garment fell down from his shoulders, and abubaker came, and he took the upper garment and placed it back upon his shoulders, and then said to him, or prophet of Allah, you have sufficiently besieged your Lord, indeed, Allah will promise will fulfill what he promised you is the stilley funaro book and we need to see how are our draws? First,

01:50:44--> 01:51:27

the Geobella comb, and he answered you, that indeed, I will reinforce you with 1000 from the angels following one another. And Allah made it not but good tidings, and so that your hearts would be assured thereby, and victory is not but from Allah. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. Remember, when he overwhelmed you with drowsiness, giving security from him, and sometimes really, sleep gives security, it gives you a break from your anxiety, and sent down upon you from the sky rain by which to purify you, and remove from you the evil suggestions of shavon and to make steadfast your hearts and plant firmly there by your feet. So Allah has helped came in different

01:51:27--> 01:52:10

ways. Remember, when your Lord inspired to the angels, I am with you so strengthen those who have believed strengthen their hearts with Sakina I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved. So strike them upon the next and strike from and strike from them every fingertip. That is because they opposed Allah and His Messenger, and whoever opposes Allah and His messenger. Indeed, Allah is severe and penalty, that is yours meaning punishment so tasty, and indeed for the disbelievers is the punishment of the Fire. Notice disgrace in the world, and punishment in the fire. Or you will have believed when you meet those who disbelieve advancing for battle, do not turn

01:52:10--> 01:52:55

to them, your backs inflate, and whoever turns his back to them on such a day, unless swerving as a strategy for war, or joining another company has certainly returned with anger upon him from Allah and His refuge as hell and wretched is the destination. So only turn back as a tactic as a maneuver, not to escape, you can change your strategy, but you should not quit. Because when one person leaves than more leave, and you did not kill them, but it was Allah Who killed them, and you through not to win you through but it was a lovable through that he might test the believers with a good test. Indeed, Allah is hearing and knowing sopran Allah He tested and he helped, and then he rewarded how

01:52:55--> 01:53:43

merciful is our Lord. And you see how victory is described as Bella and hasn't had a good test. It is still a test, that is so and also that Allah will weaken the plot of the disbelievers. If you disbelievers seek the victory, the defeat has come to you. And if you resist, it is best for you. But if you return to war, we will return and never will you be availed by your large company at all, even if it should increase and that is because Allah is with the believers. You see before the machine left to fight the Muslims. They wanted the carbine held the kiss, swab the Kaaba asking that the one on truth be given victory. So, they asked for for victory and a last Panthera showed them

01:53:43--> 01:53:45

through better as to who was upon the truth.

01:53:46--> 01:54:34

Will you who have believed obey Allah and His messenger and do not turn away all you who have believed obey Allah and His messenger and do not turn from him while you hear his order, and do not be like those who say, Samir, now we have heard we know while they do not hear, because if they actually heard, it would have been visible in their manner in their actions. So remember, it is not enough to just here to just listen, it is important to bring about the necessary change in our lives. Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are the deaf and dumb, who do not use reason. This is not people who are unable to hear or people who are not able to see this is

01:54:34--> 01:54:55

people, not with the physical, any disability, but this is people who, despite having the ability to hear and see and speak, they fail to use reason. They fail to use reason and how is that that they listen, but then they ignore? They learn, but then they

01:54:57--> 01:54:59

choose to ignore. They don't act upon their knowledge.

01:55:00--> 01:55:42

Had Allah known any good in them, he would have made them here and Subhanallah there's so many people who maybe not be able to hear with their ears, but still they're willing to hear to find out what Allah subhanaw taala has said, What Allah soprano TARDIS collab means so they use every possible means within their ability to find out what the message of the Quran is. So those who are eager, those who are genuine, that it doesn't matter whether they have certain abilities or not, certain faculties are not Allah subhanaw taala it gives them the ability, Allah subhanaw taala gives them the ability to hear the odd to learn the Quran. And if he had made them here, they would still

01:55:42--> 01:56:09

have turned away while they were refusing such are some people the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said on the membered ones, be merciful, and you will be treated with mercy, forgive, and Allah will forgive you woe to those who only hear war to those who knowingly persist on their sense, meaning they just hear with their ears, and that's it. And they think they have done enough, just by hearing with their ears, their actions don't change.

01:56:10--> 01:56:56

Or you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the messenger, when he calls you to that which gives you life and know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart, and that to Him you will be gathered, Allah subhana wa tada has access to your heart direct access, because He is the Creator. So fear him with the ofits netten. And fear a trial, which will not strike only those who have wronged among you exclusively, they must be stopped. Otherwise, the punishment will be common upon all and know that Allah is severe in penalty. And remember, when you were few and oppressed in the land, the Muslims are told to think about the days they spent in Makkah, fearing that people

01:56:56--> 01:57:35

might abduct you, but he sheltered you, in Medina supported you with his victory, and provided you with good things that you might be grateful. So when Allah subhanaw taala has blessed you a great deal. You also come forward in the way of Allah a great deal, you also obey Allah a great deal, all you who have believed, do not betray Allah and the messenger or betray your trusts while you know, betraying Allah and the messenger means not obeying properly and completely, for example, betraying Allah, an example of that is that while a person is praying Salah they actually don't have will do, or that inside, they're looking here and there.

01:57:36--> 01:57:47

This is a form of betraying Allah and His messenger. So do not betray a lie in the messenger or betray or trusts, meaning when someone has trusted you then fulfill that trust, while you know.

01:57:48--> 01:58:31

We're level. And number unwelcome. We're allowed to configure and know that your properties and your children are a bit of trial, and that Allah has with him a great reward. So yes, properties and children, they are a blessing. But along with that, they're also a test how that they keep us so busy, that sometimes we forget to remember Allah. So yes, you have to take care of your children, you have to take care of your property, but don't get so preoccupied with them that you forget about Allah and his right. And there are tests in another way as well. That Are you going to be grateful for them? Or are you just going to focus on things that are not working for you, or things that are

01:58:31--> 01:59:19

annoying you? Yeah, you have levena Avenue, into Tacoma, er local for corner, all you have believed if you fear Allah, He will grant you a criterion and will remove from you your misdeeds and forgive you, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. So we see over here the benefit of the poor, of being conscious of Allah, of being mindful of him. When a person is more alert, more aware, they remember Allah than what happens. Allah subhanaw taala gives them full con. And what is this full con it is the ability to make the right decision. This is when a person is able to identify their own mistakes, their own slips and falls and wrong things. For con, any, it's the ability to tell

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

between two to four to five, to differentiate between what is right and what is wrong. So often, people are blind to their own mistakes. So the taqwa of Allah leads to self awareness. And taqwa of Allah also brings Christ also brings clarity to a person, even by himself that Furqan includes the light with which the believer distinguishes between right and wrong. And the more taqwa a person has, the closer he is to Allah, the more he is able to distinguish between right and wrong, the more self aware he becomes, and remember when those who disbelieved plotted

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

against you against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to restrain you or kill you or evict you from Makkah, this was before the hedgerow, but they plan and Allah plans and Allah is the best of planners. And when our Verses are recited to them, they say we have heard, stop it. We know enough, if we will, we could say something like this not impressive at all. This is not but legends of the former peoples. This is the behavior of the arrogant towards the Koran. And remember when they said, Oh Allah, if this should be the truth from you, then rained down upon a stones from the sky, or bring us a painful punishment. So Pamela, the people of Makkah would say this not as a door opener

02:00:38--> 02:01:15

as a challenge, because they believed so firmly that what they were doing what they were clinging to, was perfect, it was the right thing to do. But Allah would not punish them while you are among them, and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness. So as long as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was among them, they were safe. But then when the Prophet salallahu already sent a migrated from Mecca to Medina, now the punishment was unleashed against them. And this is why so many of them were killed at the Battle of but and this is shows us that there are two things that protect people from the punishment of Allah, first of all, the presence of a prophet. But secondly,

02:01:15--> 02:01:59

when the Prophet is no longer there, then seeking forgiveness because a love would not punish them while they seek forgiveness. So as long as a person seeks forgiveness of Allah, He is safe from the punishment of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, The servant is when he is safe and secure from the punishment of Allah as long as he seeks forgiveness of Allah. And even the angels who are told to record the deeds, they are instructed to wait for some time before recording the sin of a person. Why for Enigma was still follow him into that if he feels bad, and he seeks forgiveness from Allah for that sin, then that sin is not written. But if he doesn't, then it's

02:01:59--> 02:02:42

written as only one sin. This is why we should keep seeking forgiveness. Keep seeking forgiveness, make it a habit to do is to fall morning and evening. But why should a law not punish them meaning Now, while they obstruct people from a muscular how long and they were not fit to be its guardians, its true guardians are not but the righteous, but most of them do not know. So remember, the people who have Taqwa are the people who deserve to be the caretakers of the masjid, the guardians of the masjid, as we learned in a Hadith, and must you do by to conclude that the masjid is the house of every happy, every righteous person. And their prayer at the house was not except whistling and

02:02:42--> 02:03:21

hand-clapping mean, this is what the people of Makkah would do when they would go around the Kaaba to worship Allah, whistling and hand-clapping. So takes the punishment for what you're disbelieved. This is what some people have done, they think ariba is all about entertainment. Indeed, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to avert people from the way of Allah, so they will spend it, then it will be for them a source of regret. And this shows us that the improper use of wealth will be a source of regret for a person, even in this life, then they will be overcome, and those who have disbelieved unto hell, they will be gathered. This is so that a lot may distinguish the wicked from

02:03:21--> 02:04:01

the good, and place the wicked, some of them upon others, and heap them all together and put them into hell. It is those who are the losers, this is real bankruptcy. soprano law, say to those who have disbelieved that if they sees what has previously occurred will be forgiven for them because they came at bothered to fight the Muslims, right. And the Battle of butter taught them a very important lesson. So learn from this, and stop your hostility against the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam if they cease, than what has previously occurred, will be forgiven. But if they return meaning to hostility, then the precedent of the former peoples has already taken

02:04:01--> 02:04:45

place, meaning you saw what happened with you and bothered. And then the messenger of allies told and fight them until there is no fitna and until the religion all of it is for Allah. And if they cease, then Indeed Allah is seeing of what they do. Meaning of they don't seize their hostilities against you, then you have to fight back. But if they turn away, meaning they continue to be hostile, then know that Allah is your protector. farla mu and Allaha Mola comb nierman Mola, when near Amanda seed, excellent is the Protector, and excellent is the helper. And remember, I heard when Abu sufian said that we have erza you have no reserve, the Prophet sallallahu Ortiz, and I'm

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

sad to the companions, that why don't you answer him back? And they said, what should we say? He said, say, Allah is our helper Allahu mowlana. When our molalla comb, Allah is our molar, and you in fact have no molar

02:05:00--> 02:05:34

And so this realization that Allah is our molar. This should always bring us hope. And it should always bring us confidence in the face of hate. And in the face of the arrogant who threaten us who make Islam difficult for us. Never ever lose hope because Allah is your Mola we lost a panel Tada. forever be our molar, our Willie soprano. calavo morbihan big a Chateau La Ilaha Illa.
