Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:11--> 00:00:31

are the be Lamia shape Piniella Jean Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam are a lot of Sunni he's getting. I'll be sure he saw that he were Sidley, MD, while slowly rock Dr. melissani of Kahu Kohli Allahumma. Handy Pallavi was said the Lisa Annie was sleuth Sophie moto Colby amenia. But I mean

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

what a person recite the Quran or the study its meanings, they reflect upon it, their ultimate goal should be to please Allah subhanaw taala and it should be to gain the rewards of the hereafter. We learned that I was sorry the Hadith he said that I heard Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that after 60 years will come a generation that will neglect the solder. It will pursue desires and will meet evil, after them will come a generation that will recite the Quran, but it will not go past their throats. And he said there are three kinds of people who recite the Quran, the believer, the hypocrite and the wicked. And then he explained who these people are. So we see

00:01:24--> 00:02:16

that our goal when we are reciting the Quran should not be to earn worldly benefits. Our recitation should not just be in our mouths, our reading our study should not just be intellectual, it should be for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala even but Paul said that this means that the recitation of the wicked and of the hypocrite does not ascend to Allah. Why because it is not for him. So when it is not for him, it is not accepted by him. So the recitation the reading, it ends here in this in this world, it is it does not ascend up to Allah subhanaw taala. The only recitation that is worthy of acceptance is the one by which the face of Allah is sought, and the intention is to seek nearness

00:02:16--> 00:02:34

to him. So we should make sure that our recitation is is with sincerity, our study our reflection, our our, you know, learning plan is for the sake of Allah, so that it ascends to him as a religion, because only then will it be beneficial.

00:02:35--> 00:03:37

Just number 13 Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. wama Oberlin una FC in nannup, Salah Amala to be su LML Rahim Allah be in our ob la food over him, and I do not acquit myself. Indeed, the soul is a persistent enjoyer of evil, except those upon which my lord has mercy. Indeed, my lord is Forgiving and Merciful. Yusuf Alayhi Salam says this about himself, that even though my innocence is established, but in spite of that, I do not claim that I am pure, that I am perfect. And in the Quran, we are told fella to Zaku and full circle, that do not claim yourselves to be pure and perfect. Do not think about yourself that you are very pious, that you are free of sin, that you

00:03:37--> 00:04:31

have never made any mistake. No, because every human being in one way or another does make mistakes at some level. And the more taqwa a person has, the closer a person is to Allah subhanaw taala, the more fearful he or she is, than a person is able to see their own shortcomings and because of that, they fear Allah subhanaw taala even more, we see that the prophets of Allah are innocent of sin, yet use of earliest Salaam in his humility in his honesty, he makes this statement that the knifes definitely incites to evil. It is a persistent enjoyer of evil. And this is a lesson that we need to take for ourselves as well, that we don't go on claiming to be perfect before others. We learned

00:04:31--> 00:05:00

from this ayah about the nature of the knifes that it does urge a person to do evil, just like an untamed horse that is very difficult to control. So a person can easily be defeated by their own knifes except for who in lemma Rahim Allah be except for the person or accept those moments in which Allah has mercy protects a person from his

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

own nuts. This is why we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us against our own knifes Allahumma Atty. nuptse, taqwa that Allah gave my knucks it's the Aqua was that key have purify it.

00:05:17--> 00:06:01

In another hour we learned are all the becoming sheltered enough see that Oh Allah, I seek your protection from the evil of my soul and this is part of the draw which we recite in the morning and in the evening that Yeah, Allah you protect me from my own evil. Because a person can get deceived by their own knifes very easily, a person can fall prey to the tricks of the knifes because the knifes beautifies sin and wrongdoing. So a person thinks that what is wrong is actually beneficial. And so he ends up doing it and then later on, there are only regrets. We see that in the Quran. three characteristics of the knifes are mentioned that first of all, it is a moment to be super, it

00:06:01--> 00:06:54

persistently enjoins of evil meaning it urges a person to commit sin. And when does that happen? When a person is already that when a person knowingly commits a sin, then he becomes weak before his own desire. So the notes then urges it to follow its desire over and over again. Secondly, the novice is also described as nevsun lawanna, meaning the knifes that reproaches and blames meaning after we do something wrong and 100 in law for the ability of the knifes to feel that wrong. And so your own nuts tells you that this was not okay. It reproaches you and we should listen to the voice of of the knifes when it reproaches us when it regrets over the sin that was committed. Why? Because

00:06:54--> 00:07:21

this leads to repentance. But if you silence this voice over and over again, then the nosode Lama dies. And then there is Nelson multimo in the knocks that is satisfied, and that is after Toba after making repentance and after doing good things, this is when a person can really feel contentment, whereas before it it was upset and sad and angry.

00:07:22--> 00:08:06

So we see in this ayah that will not be enough see in enough Salah Amala to be su Illa moto hemara be and then look at the names of a lot that are mentioned here in Nabila. fudo Rahim, my lord is Forgiving and Merciful. So, even if a person has fallen prey to their own nups there is hope of recovery. This ayah is proof that it is not impossible to leave what is wrong, whether it is an unlawful relationship or it is some bad habit, it is bursts of anger that a person is not able to control initially violent actions, foul language, whatever it is, you are able to move past it with the help of Allah subhanaw taala. But for that you have to begin with acknowledgement you have to

00:08:06--> 00:08:53

begin with humility, and then you seek the help of Allah subhanaw taala and then you strive and when you strive then allow us help will also be with you. We learn in a hadith that the best of believers in Islam is the one from whose Tongan hands other Muslims are safe. And the best Jihad the best striving is of the person who strives against his own nuts for the sake of Allah. And the best of the immigrants is the one who strives against his nuts and desire for the sake of Allah soprano dhara. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for help against our own knifes, a lot of them are Metallica or Jew, or Allah, I seek Your mercy fanatically in an FC port for 13. So do not leave me

00:08:53--> 00:09:44

to my soul, even for the blink of the eye. And the king said, Bring him to me. I will appoint him exclusively for myself. And when he spoke to him, he said indeed you are today established in position and trusted. So we see that the king was greatly impressed by use of it as an app. And when he met him, he spoke to him he was even more impressed that he wanted to have use of a salon, be his personal advisor, use a part of his time said appoint me over the storehouses of the land. Indeed, I will be annoying Guardian use Avaya. Sam offered to do what he believed he was more capable of doing what he was good at doing. If you think about it, the king offered him to be his personal advisor

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

and being the Kings confidant would be a great privilege. Being the personal advisor to the king. Any it would be awesome. But Yusufzai his salon chose to do something else something better because he was not seeking that

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

privilege in the world, he was not seeking power. He was he was trying to use his abilities and his strengths in the best way possible. And this is the reason why he said that appoint me over the storehouses of the land, I will be annoying Guardian, he was not bragging over here that I am very knowledgeable, and I'm very trustworthy, no, he was not bragging, he was offering his services, and he was mentioning his strengths, so that he will be trusted. And so we learned that in general, it is not permissible, it is not something liked, that a person should go on talking about their strengths, and you know, their skills and their accomplishments that I have done this and I have

00:10:42--> 00:11:06

done that, and I'm capable of this and I'm capable of doing that any this is showing off. It is not permissible, unless there is a reason and what would that reason be, for example, here that he's offering a service. So when you're applying for a job, for example, it is completely permissible, but in casual conversation, and he This is not something that is pleasant for other people to put up with.

00:11:08--> 00:12:00

co worker that he can occasionally use to fill out and thus we established use of in the land to settle there in wherever he will surround the law. He had so much freedom and power now, after so many restrictions, things change, but how by the mercy of Allah, no slave will be lamattina Manisha we touch with our mercy, who we will well our newly agilon mercy, and we do not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good. Remember, Allah's mercy is an evil man and mercy need, it is close, it is ever near to those who do good. So in difficulty in hardship, it is necessary that we focus on what we are able to do what we can do, and whatever it is that we can do, let us do it with

00:12:00--> 00:12:45

excellence in the best way possible. And that is a sign that a person does the best that they can. Why? Because they know that my lord is watching me. And even if and and the meaning exam is that you do good as though you can see Allah. And if you cannot bring about that feeling, then you remind yourself that Allah is watching you. This is what makes a person's actions. Excellent and beautiful. So when a person does a sand, even in hardship, like Yusuf Ali Hassan did, he was a Morrison everywhere. And his exam was basically his sub, his patience, that he did not give up. And he did not get upset in the hardships that he endured. And he focused on what he could do. He was patient

00:12:45--> 00:13:35

in the well, he was patient as a slave, he was patient in the face of temptation. He was patient in the prison. And he he was patient everywhere. And he his patients was that neither did he give up and get upset, nor did he focus on just his problems that you know, Woe is me. And this is so horrible. I am being oppressed and this is unfair. No, he focused on what he could do. He contributed wherever that he was, he was excellent in worship, wherever that he was. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala as mercy reached him at its right time newsleave will be like mattina, Manisha when annuli Angela mercy Nene. Allah does not waste the reward of those who do good, meaning sooner

00:13:35--> 00:14:26

or later, Allah does reward them. Even in this life. We learned in the Hadees that the help of Allah comes in proportion to the difficulty that a person endures and patience also comes in proportion to the trial. And so we see that because of his sub, because of his patients, he had his he had honor, because of his patience, even though he was oppressed, and he was humiliated by people. Allah subhanaw taala honored him What a jewel Aquila to hide, and surely the reward of the Hereafter is better. But for who little Medina Amano, what can we get the cone for those who believed and were fearing of law, use of it his son didn't just have subud he also had duckula he feared Allah because

00:14:26--> 00:14:47

of which he refrained from sin. Even though the invitation was sin was not just once, but it was multiple times. So we see over here the reward in the world for those who do good. And from that, just try to estimate just try to imagine what the reward in the hereafter will be.

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

has an adversity he said that do not detest the misfortunes that befall you, for what you detest, may be the cause of your salvation. And what you like

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

may be the cause of your ruin. So what is subud? What is the club that a person accepts the misfortune that has befallen them, and that, that a person has stuck with meaning they do not inclined to sin and wrongdoing, just because they're having a difficult time.

00:15:18--> 00:15:59

Then another turn of events and the brother is abusive already his salon came meaning they came to Egypt to buy food, because everywhere else in the area there was famine. But in Egypt use of it saddam had been prepared from before. And they entered upon him and he recognized them. But he was to them unknown, because they had gotten rid of him by throwing him in the well, they could have never imagined that this would be useful for your setup. And when he had furnished them with their supplies, he said, Bring me a brother of yours from your father, meaning your your your brother, that you did not bring this time, bring him on your next trip, and perhaps in conversation, it came

00:15:59--> 00:16:42

out that they had another brother back home, don't you see that I give full measure, and that I am the best of accommodators. Again, he's not showing off over here or praising himself, but he's building trust. But if you do not bring him to me, no measure will there be hereafter for you for me, nor will you approach me. They said, We will attempt to dissuade his father from keeping him and indeed we will do it. And use of it as Sam said to his servants put their merchandise into their saddlebags meaning the payment they gave, put it back into their bags secretly without their knowledge. Why? So they might recognize it when they have gone back to their people, that perhaps

00:16:42--> 00:17:29

they will again return. So when they return to their father, they said oh our father, further measure has been denied to us. So send with us our brother that we will be given measured, and indeed we will be his guardians. gone ahead. Manu, como la causa hell, new como la in la cama Ameen to come Allah He human Kabal, he said, should I entrust you with him except under coercion? As I entrusted you with his brother before? Should I make the same mistake? No, I'm not. But Allah is the best Guardian, you keep claiming that you will guard and protect. The fact is that Allah is the Guardian, and He is the Most Merciful, of the Merciful. So it is very clear here that the brothers

00:17:29--> 00:18:11

of use of ITSM had lost their trust, their father did not trust them anymore. Because a person when he lies over and over again, then they lose their credibility, then even their close ones don't rely on them anymore. They don't believe their words anymore. And we see here that our Cobra is Sam says that follow who hiren have evolved a lot is the best guardian. And the fact is that anything is safe when Allah subhanaw taala makes it safe. So when you're leaving something, even if it's your loved ones, then give them in the protection of Allah subhanaw taala which I had said that I want to talk with someone and we met our beloved or model de la Mora who, when it was time to leave, he said, I

00:18:11--> 00:18:55

do not have anything to give you but I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that when you leave something in Allah's protection, he guards it. So I entrust to Allah, your religion, your safety and the outcome of your deeds as though they are Lucha Dena, Kuma What? Amana tecoma, Mahatma monokuma. And when they opened their baggage, they found their merchandise returned to them. They said, Oh our Father, what more could we desire? Meaning if we go back, and we take our brother with us, because that's the only way that we can purchase more food, it will basically food that will be free of cost. This is our merchandise returned to us. And we will obtain supplies for our family and

00:18:55--> 00:19:44

protect our brother and obtain an increase of a camels load. That is an easy measurement. So your Kubernetes son and he realized how it was necessary to send his children to buy more food because they were suffering from a drought. He said never will I send him with you until you give me a promise By Allah, that you will bring him back to me. So make a promise by Allah in Allah's Name, swear an oath that you will bring him back to me unless you should be surrounded by enemies. So we see that a believer is realistic. A believer does what they can they take the necessary measures for their protection, but they also realize that ultimately things are in Allah's control. Nothing can

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

happen without the will of Allah.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

And when they had given their promise, he said Allah over what we say is witness, meaning we rely on Allah subhanaw taala I don't rely on you on your words, but I put my trust in

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

Wah. And he said, Oh my sons do not enter from one gate, but enter from different gates. Why did he say this? Because he had any these were 11 young men who were also very handsome. And if they're entering the city together, they would certainly draw attention. And it was possible that the locals would feel threatened. And it was possible that they would get affected by the evil eye. So this is why he told them to enter this way to avoid attracting any attention. But then he also made it clear that I cannot avail you against the decree of Allah at all. Meaning despite my effort and my willingness to protect you, ultimately, alas, decree will prevail. Now, remember that the evil eye

00:20:47--> 00:21:37

it is definitely something real. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and I know how it is true, it is real, and its effect can really be disastrous. And remember, that the cause for evil eye is not only jealousy, it can also be looking at someone or something with excessive admiration, that can also lead to the evil eye. Basically, when a person looks at something with feelings of jealousy, or excessive admiration, then this is something that empowers shame upon and then shame upon is able to harm the person who is being stared at, or even claim explained that it is like an arrow that launches to word the victim. And if the victim if the person is not shielded, then what

00:21:37--> 00:22:25

happens is that the arrow hits him by the will of Allah. And in Hades, we learn that the evil eye can literally land a person in their grave, or it can cause a person to suffer from severe illness to slip and fall and have strange unexplainable conditions. So your Kubernetes AMS strategy, where he told his children to enter from multiple gates but not together and not together at the same time from the same gate, and he This proves that it is permissible to take precaution against evil eye. But that precaution is not by using evil eye blockers that you can order off of Amazon. No, it is not a black mark that you put, you know somewhere, it is not a blue eye charm. It is not certain

00:22:25--> 00:23:03

jewelry or amulets that you hang around your house or on your children. No, this is not the way to fortify yourself from the effect of the evil eye. It is to do what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us and that is the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used different color to protect himself from the effect of the evil eye. And then when the more or with a 10 suited put out a bit of luck and color with a bit of bitterness when these two suitors were revealed to him, that he would recite them for his protection. So we should do the same thing. Recite these for our protection, morning and evening after every Salah

00:23:03--> 00:23:49

whenever you feel afraid, and also teach your children to recite them on themselves in order to protect themselves and there's also another us which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught for protection against the evil eye. And he said in in Hoku Illallah The decision is only for Allah. And this is something that we have to remember. Because sometimes we take our precaution we read over the hours and still, you know, something happens. So we wonder that our does not work, know that there are always any it works. But the thing is that Allah subhanaw taala any he decides that something should touch you at a certain time. Why? Because even on the surface, it appears to be bad

00:23:49--> 00:24:39

and harmful in reality is good for you. In reality, it works in the favor of the believer. We learned that in the Quran, when the believer say that could lay you sleep in at 11 cuttable Allahu lenor, that nothing will reach us nothing will hit us except for what Allah has decreed for us. What does that mean? It means that whatever that Allah has decreed for us in regards to us, it is actually in our favor, even if it appears to be painful and bad, and harmful. In reality, it is good for us. And this is something that we have to remember that for the believer, really there is no harm. There is always the believer is always in a win win situation. So it is helpful in learning

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

that sometimes you read your doras and you know, you take your precaution and then still you see that you know you get sick or that what you like gets damaged or that you suffer in your property in your family. And you still accept that with somebody and with little that Allah I know there is good in this for me. I trust your decision.

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

How can one inland in LA, he said la he taught Cal to upon him I have relied. And you see, when you rely on someone, what does it mean? You believe in their plan, you don't question them. Because if you keep questioning them, and you keep criticizing them their decision, that means that you have not relied on them, or lay he telecoil to upon him I have relied, and upon him lead those who would rely, indeed rely. So he's teaching his children also that you should put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala.

00:25:33--> 00:26:17

And when they entered from where their father had ordered them, it did not avail them against Allah at all, except it was a need within the soul of your code which he satisfied. Meaning despite all the care that he took, whatever was meant to happen, indeed happened, because Allah will prevails. And indeed, he was a possessor of knowledge. Jacobo Hassan was not superstitious, he did not tell his sons to do what he told them out of ignorance and superstition. But he gave those instructions based on knowledge. How was he knowledgeable because of what we had taught him, but most of the people do not know. We see this in the life of your Cobra, his son, and he tells his son use of

00:26:17--> 00:27:05

don't tell your dream to your brothers. Otherwise, they will conspire against you. But they conspired against him. Anyway, here he told his sons enter the city in this way, but they still got harmed. Anyway. And this is a beautiful lesson that we learned that you know what? Yes, you should take your precautions. And yes, you have to do what is in your in your ability. But at the end, remember that what is decreed for you will happen. But if you put your trust in Allah, and you believe you surrender, then unless plans will always work in your favor. And when they entered upon Yusuf Ali SNM, he took his brother beating, I mean, his full brother to himself, he embraced him. He

00:27:05--> 00:27:49

hugged him, he said, Indeed, I am your brother. So do not despair over what they used to do soprano, but it doesn't, he's telling them we're not going to talk about the bad things that happened. We're going to forget about it. Now. Let us enjoy our time together. The thing is that when we see our loved ones, yes, you know, we want to pour out our hearts with our, you know, painful experiences and that is okay. Any, it's it's okay to talk about your painful experiences, because that does bring you some kind of relief. But don't spend all of your time just talking about your painful past. Because that will make you dwell in your past. When Allah subhanaw taala has given you the

00:27:49--> 00:28:33

opportunity to enjoy time with your loved ones, then spend that in you know, in good things, talking about the blessings of Allah and enjoying the moment. Right and and enjoying and talking about the fact that Allah subhanaw taala You know, he has still given you so much for guru, Allah, Allah talks about the blessings of Allah so that you may be successful. Because when we talk about negative things, negative experiences, that we only increase in our worry and our sadness, and our grief. So use of artists that I'm told them told Binyamin finat Tabitha is the Macan we are Milan, just forget about what they have been doing. And this shows that use of our his time had truly forgiven his

00:28:33--> 00:29:26

brothers. This is the reason why he was not resentful. He was not vengeful, he was able to move, move forward from his past, and he gave the same message to his brother. Remember that forgiving people? Yes, it does not change the past. It does not what happened in the past is any it's it's written, it's recorded. But forgiving people allows you to enjoy your present life, and it makes your future more beautiful. So when you forgive someone, and you allow yourself to heal, if you keep poking at that same wound, it's not going to get better, it's not going to heal. You're only causing yourself to suffer for longer. So allow yourself to heal and forgive people so that you can enjoy

00:29:26--> 00:29:59

the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given you. So when he had furnished them with their supplies, he put the gold measuring bowl into the bag of his brother Vinnie. I mean meaning use of it. Sam put that bowl in the bag of Binyamin himself, and then an announcer called out old caravan. Indeed, you are thieves. Perhaps you surprised him did that on purpose? Or perhaps he did that in order to give Binyamin a gift? So what happened? They said while approaching them the brothers of heusler he said I said what is it that you were missing?

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

They said we are missing the measure the measuring cup of the king. And for he who produces it is the reward of a Campbell's load and I am responsible for it. They said by Allah, you have certainly known that we did not come to cause corruption in the land, and we have not been thieves, meaning don't call us thieves were not themes. The accuser said, then what would be its recompense if you should be liars. The brother said, it's recompense is that he in whose bag it is found, he himself will be its recompense, meaning according to our law, the thief is imprisoned with who with the person whom he has stolen from, thus do We recompense the wrongdoers even though the love of Egypt

00:30:43--> 00:31:08

was different, but the but the brothers of use of earliest and I mentioned the lot that they followed, so he began the search with their bags before the bag of his brother, then he extracted it from the back of his brother. So now what happened? Now, Binyamin was seen as a thief, and what that meant was that Binyamin would be kept as a prisoner with who with use of arisa. Thus did we plan for use of

00:31:10--> 00:31:56

Allah planned this for use of it as an app? Even if you suffer Edison and deliberately put that cup? Any how often does it happen that people try to make a plan but that plan doesn't always work. So if you suffer the asylum intended to do this, any in this plan only worked by Allah subhanaw taala has permission by his facilitation, or any This means that use of it Sam did not plan this at all. He was just giving that cup as a gift. But then at the same time, the cup of the cane went missing. And as they searched for it, they discovered another cup, which belonged to use of ITSM and not the king. And as a result, Binyamin would now be imprisoned with use of race and now a las panatela says

00:31:56--> 00:32:42

Matt can Eliot Khuda ha hoo fee Dean and Malik, he could not have taken his brother within the religion of the king, except that Allah will not follow Donna jetty Manisha we raise in degrees, whom we will will focus could only be a min Eileen, but over every possessor of knowledge is one more knowing. Meaning, no matter how knowledgeable a person is, there is always someone else who knows more than them. And someone else who knows more than them and someone else who knows more than them until Allah subhanaw taala He knows everything. He is alima lavey was Shahada. So a person should be humble with regards to their knowledge, no person should think that I know everything. And

00:32:42--> 00:32:53

I've got everything in control. No, this is all knowledge is with Allah subhanaw taala. And if you know something, this is Allah subhanaw taala his favor upon you.

00:32:54--> 00:33:39

They said if he steals a brother of his has stolen before Subhana Allah any it shows how much they hated use of racism that even after all of these years, they had not forgotten him. So when Binyamin was accused of theft, they distance themselves immediately from him. And they said that well a brother of his once upon a time also committed theft, use a buddy Sam did not commit theft. So use have kept it within himself. He was so composed, he remained silent over here, and he did not reveal it to them. He did not reveal his identity to them. And this is somebody and he could have said that what do you mean I committed theft? Do you know who I am? How dare you accuse me? He He could have

00:33:39--> 00:34:30

come against them with full force? And yes, that would have satisfied his ego, but it would not have brought about a good outcome. Sub patience includes being silent at times, not saying anything in response. Why? Because if you don't remain silent over there, then the problem is, is only going to get worse. And then shaitan is going to get the better of the situation. So speak when it is beneficial and remain silent when speaking is harmful. This is also from wisdom. So use of RSM was patient over here. He didn't say anything. But he said in his heart, that you are worse in position hinny how bad and you're accusing me of something I never did. But look at you. After all these

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

years, you still harbor such ill feelings. And Allah is most knowing of what you describe what a beautiful statement. Anytime someone accuses you of something that is not in you, and you are not in a position to defend yourself and remind yourself that you know what Allah knows, Allah knows the truth of the situation. And if Allah knows that is sufficient, because he will bring about justice. They said or Aziz soprano law just moments ago.

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

They call the use of RSM a thief. And now because they don't know It is him, they call him Aziz. Oh, honorable one. Indeed he has a father who is an old man. So take one of us in place of him in an archimedean City. Indeed we see you as a daughter of good soprano law. They call him a moisten as well. Use of art his Sam was truly immersing consistently good and generous, consistently as a slave in the prison. And now, even when he has so much power and authority, he is a moisten. So his brothers also who actually hate him, one day don't recognize him, they're able to see his heir son. He said, I seek the refuge of Allah, to prevent that we take except him with whom we found our

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

possession me, may Allah protect me that I should do something like this. Indeed, we would then be unjust, meaning there is no way that I will be unjust here. So when they had despaired of him, they realized that he's not going to budge. They secluded themselves in private consultation, the eldest of them said, Do you not know that your father has taken upon you an oath by a law, and that before you failed in your duty to use of now they're thinking about use of race now. So I will never leave this land until my father permits me or Allah decides for me, and he is the best of judges will who will hide on hacky mean? He said, return to your father and say, oh, our Father, indeed Your son has

00:36:36--> 00:37:23

stolen, and we did not testify except to what we knew. Meaning we wouldn't call him a thief, unless we had seen with our own eyes, that the cup was extracted from his bag. And we were not witnesses of the unseen, meaning we didn't see him commit the theft. We just saw the cup being extracted from his belongings, and asked the city in which we were and the caravan in which we came, and indeed, we are truthful. They're trying so hard to convince their father that we are speaking the truth. We're not making this up. We did not do something to Binney, I mean, just as we did to use it once upon a time. But Dr. Koop it is Sam said, rather, your souls have enticed you to something so Pamela,

00:37:23--> 00:38:13

they're not believable at all. Because you see the pattern was the same. We learned that a person keeps on lying, until he has written before Allah a liar. And remember, the boy who cried wolf, this is the problem with lying, that a person loses their credibility that when even they're truthful, people don't believe them. So jacobellis and I'm sad for sabaton Jimmy so patience is most fitting, perhaps Allah will bring them to me all together. Indeed it is he who was the knowing the wise supprimer law, your Cobra Hassan has now lost three sons of his, but he says for subaltern, Jamil, and how incredibly hopeful he is, he says, perhaps Allah will bring all of them back. And remember I

00:38:13--> 00:38:20

saw when it's used for Allah subhanaw taala. Perhaps Allah perhaps doesn't mean maybe? No, it means for sure.

00:38:21--> 00:39:13

So why is it that your Kubernetes tiller is so hopeful, because now his trial was getting even harder before he had lost only one son, and now all of a sudden he had lost three sons, three suns were removed from him. So this is a fact that when things get really really difficult, then relief is actually near. It is very close. This is something that Allah subhanaw taala shows to us, even in the nature that is around us the creation that is around us that when the night darkens Daybreak is near, so this is why you your Cobra, Sam says for several don't Jimmy, I am going to have beautiful patience. And in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned sablon Jamil had you on Jimmy and

00:39:13--> 00:39:37

suffering Jimmy, Southern Jimmy is to be patient beautifully with dignity, with contentment, and without any complaint and hygiene, Jimmy is to leave those who bother you in terms of your religion without causing any harm to them. And suffering Jamil is to pardon someone who has annoyed you without getting upset with them.

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

And he turned away from them. And he said, Oh my sorrow over use of and his eyes became white from grief. He cried so much. He became blind. For he was of that a suppressor? Meaning Yes, he was grieving a lot. But he also suppressed his grief. Meaning he cried, but he did not wail. So remember, it is permissive.

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

To Cry, what is wrong is wailing. Crying is not wrong. Being able to cry is actually a cause of inviting unless penalties and mercy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Listen, Allah does not punish for the weeping of the eye, nor the sadness of the heart. But he punishes for this meaning for the tongue, or he shows mercy, meaning because of what you say in grief, either you get punishment, or you get mercy from Allah soprano Tada. And he pointed towards his tongue at the same time. So being able to cry is a sign of soft heartedness. And there's nothing wrong with that. But that crying should not turn into wailing. Because two sounds we learned Hadeeth are cursed in this

00:40:45--> 00:41:31

world and in the hereafter. One is the sound of Miss mob, wrongful celebration, in a time of blessing, that a person becomes very boastful and there is music and there's, you know, screaming out of extreme joy in these kind of sounds, noises. Allah does not like and wailing at the time of Muslim. And remember, wailing is something that invites shaitan we learned that Osama when her husband died Abu Salah when he died, she said that I am going to whale in such a way that people are going to remember my whaling they're going to talk about the way that I wailed. So she she went into her house in order to whale and another woman also any she went to, to join her in wailing, and the

00:41:31--> 00:42:19

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do you want to admit shaitan into a house from which Allah subhanaw taala expelled him? You need if you're going to wail in this way, you're not going to invite Allah's mercy, you are only going to invite shape on. So remember that in sadness, crying is perfectly fine. But we have to control the sounds that we make the words that we say. They said by Allah, you will not cease remembering use of soprano law they were so any harsh with your Cobra, he said, he is crying. And basically they're telling him Stop crying, stop remembering use, even though he was not complaining to them. But they didn't like the fact that he was grieving. And there are

00:42:19--> 00:43:06

some people like that who who do not empathize with those who are hurt. They said you will continue to remember him until you become fatally ill, or become of those who perish. In NEMA ESCO bethey were Hosni in a law. He said, I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah. This is sovereign, Jimmy, healing. I am not complaining to you. I'm not crying before you Because remember, he had turned away from them. And there he cried before Allah in Salah indorama. But they didn't like that either. They got annoyed by that. So he said I complain of my suffering in my grief to Allah. And this is completely permissible. When you are sad, then yes, complain to Allah. Don't

00:43:06--> 00:43:53

complain to people cry before Allah. This does not contradict sobol there's nothing wrong with that. And he said, I know from Allah, that which you do not know. This is why I am hopeful. And look at his hope. He says oh my son's go and find out about use of and his brother and despair not of relief from Allah. Indeed, no one despairs of relief from Allah except the disbelieving people. So remember, a believer because of his Eman And Allah He remains hopeful that okay, even though this loss is huge, this pain is very severe. Allah subhanaw taala is such that be ethical Hi, in your hand, oh, Allah is all good. So I expect the best from you. So the believer because of his email,

00:43:53--> 00:44:37

does not despair of relief from Allah, he feels sad, but he does not give up on Allah. despair is to give up on Allah, that Allah will not heal me, Allah will not help me that Allah will abandon me. This is something that does not benefit the person who believes in Allah. So when they entered upon use of this ad or disease, adversity has touched us and our family, and we have come with good and we have come with goods, poor in quality, but give us full measure and be charitable to us. So indirectly, they're asking him to be charitable to us. Meaning please, as a favor to us, let our brother go, indeed a lot rewards the charitable. So basically, there there is there came before use

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

of artists that have in a very, any humbled state, and they were almost begging for food. They were almost begging for, you know him to be generous to them to give them charity. And these are the people who had harmed use of his center, not just physically but also verbally before him and also behind his back

00:45:00--> 00:45:17

Kenny, this is something so painful to bear. Right? But use of our his salon. Look at him, his heart melts. He says, He says, Do you know what you did with use of and his brother when you were ignorant? Alone,

00:45:18--> 00:46:01

he could have made them feel horrible at this time by recounting their crimes and failures, that you know what? You are in such a pathetic state? Look at me, you tried to harm me. But guess what you couldn't. And you remember when you did this? And you did that, and you did this. And you did that. And now you're asking me for charity. Get away from me. I'm not going to give you anything. He could have taken revenge over here. But look at him. He just mentioned enough so that they understand they remember, they realize who he is. And he gives the benefit of the doubt. He says in anthem je Lune when you were ignorant, when you didn't know any better, meaning it's okay. Now, you know, now

00:46:01--> 00:46:50

you're older. Now you understand. So we see how gentle use of his center was. Remember, even if we have to point out someone's mistake, we should do so in a gentle way. Not in a harsh way. Because with gentleness, we get the results, which we cannot get with harshness. So we see here, that use of our hair salon he was gentle. And what results did this produce? Look at the brothers of use of audio setup? They said in Nicola, Auntie Yusuf, they said are you indeed user, he said I am use of and this is my brother, Allah has certainly favored us. I mean, this is only a last favor on us. Indeed, he who fears Allah and his patient, that Indeed Allah does not allow to be lost the reward

00:46:50--> 00:47:40

of those who do good. And his brother said they that By Allah, certainly Allah has preferred you over us. And indeed We have been sinners look at them, they admit their mistake. So one way of making people realize their mistake is by shaming them, by being harsh towards them by embarrassing them. And the other is to do so gently. When a person does so gently than Allah soprano, tada adds beauty to that situation. And because of that beauty, look at the results. The results are also good and excellent. So user friendly, Sam said, Amanda lover, Elena, that Allah has indeed been kind to us. Any he could have said over here that, you know, I survived. It was tough, but I survived. He

00:47:40--> 00:48:27

doesn't mention any pain, any suffering that he endured, because of what his brothers did to him. What did he mentioned here, the favors of Allah. The thing is that there's some people who view themselves as victims, no matter what happens, so and so is evil I, so until it's jealousy, you know, they're mean words. And because it's so cold, and because the nights are short, and because I am fasting, and because of this, and because of that any always viewing themselves as victims, and such people, they're negative, they spread negativity, and they're unable to make the make you know that they're unable to enjoy their life. they're unable to maintain healthy relationships. And then

00:48:27--> 00:49:20

there are people who are able to look past those bitter experiences, and they're able to see, you know, what, yes, I suffered, but I also got something. Yes, it was hard. But Alhamdulillah Allah also blessed me. And this is the attitude that we need to develop in our lives. The other man Allahu Marlena, Allah has truly favored us. He has truly bestowed huge blessings upon us. This is a way of sugar. And then he says that in the human yet the key wildsmith for inilah hilarya Leo agilon. Marcin, there's three words over here, the Aqua, the fear of Allah Subhan, patience, and sn, being excellent in what a person does. And these three things, these three qualities, lead use of our DSLR

00:49:20--> 00:49:59

to his success. This is what made him successful. So if you want things to be in your favor, regardless of your circumstances, then these are the three things that we need to do. The power of Allah in every situation that I must not do or say what a lot will be displeased with. And then Southern, that bear the hardship, any Don't, don't go on falling before the hardship and giving up bear it with strength for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and the one who tries that Allah subhanaw taala also helps him and this is a person that this is excellence. This is what allows a person to do good when you avoid wrong

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

When you are patient, only then you have the energy, the strength to focus on doing good. Otherwise, if you're stuck in self pity, then you cannot do much good. So this is the fruit of the court and somebody that Allah does not waste the reward of such a person. They said by Allah certainly has Allah preferred you over us and indeed we have been sinners. Look at that. They admitted their mistake. This is how use of artists Alam turned his enemies into his friends, by repelling evil with good. Can you know what, when someone has harmed you, one is that you try to take revenge yourself. How, by backbiting by planning how to, you know, harm them by, you know, becoming a victim. And the

00:50:51--> 00:51:35

other is that you seek the help of Allah subhanaw taala you seek Allah's help through sub through patience. And when you do that, you're able to rise above the situation, and you're able to make the most of the situation. This is why I Lost Planet, Allah says, a different ability here are some repel. With that, which is best, meaning if someone does bad to you, then do the best that you can in return. And that is what you said earlier, Sam did. He said no blame will there be upon you today? So he forgave them after so much. And you see that the three? This means that I will not even mention, we're not even going to talk about what happened. We're just going to move past it. We're

00:51:35--> 00:52:14

going to forget about it. Because you see, sometimes what happens is that we tell people yeah, I forgive you. But then we keep reminding them. Remember what you did. Remember what you said, Remember this, remember that yellow federal law who will come not only does he forgive them, he also praised for their forgiveness. May Allah forgive you. He gives them hope Allah will forgive you. Well, who are humbled Rahimi, and He is the Most Merciful of those who showed mercy. We think that if we forgive people, then any we are missing out any This is we are being unfair to ourselves. But the fact is that a person who forgives others, that Allah subhanaw taala raises them in honor, far

00:52:14--> 00:53:01

full, you're a zoo como la, pardon, and Allah will give you honor, in a hadith we learn charity does not in any way, decrease the wealth of a person and the servant who forgives that Allah adds to his respect the person who forgives that Allah adds to his respect. In another Hadees, we learned he who does not show mercy, Allah does not show mercy to him, and he who does not forgive, then he is not forgiven. So if we want to be forgiven, we should also show forgiveness. He said, Take this my shirt and cast it over the face of my father, he will become seeing and bring me your family all together. So proud Allah, the first shirt that was stained with blood started the ordeal of use of your

00:53:01--> 00:53:44

Kubernetes center. And now another shirt, the use of an Instagram sent it Why so that he would he would be able to see again, it was not something in the shirt. But the thing is, that it was the grief that was in the heart of your Kubernetes system that had caused him to become blind, and only when his grief would depart would he return to to becoming buslee again, and his grief would only depart now, when he would be with use of his setup. So this is why the smell of use of our data center it that was taken by his shirt, any that is how the Kubernetes and was able to see again, and when the caravan departed from Egypt.

00:53:46--> 00:54:31

And when the caravan departed from Egypt their father said indeed I find the smell of use of and I would say that he is alive if you do not think me weekend in mind, meaning you think I'm crazy, but I actually smell use of. But Allah subhanaw taala enabled him to smell use of at this time, because there was a time when use of his time was not far from home. He was in the well, and jacobellis and didn't know where he was. They said by Allah, indeed, you are in your same old errors, how disrespectful. And when the bearer of good news arrived, he cast it over his face. And he returned once again, seeing he said, Did I not tell you that I know from Allah, that which you do not know

00:54:31--> 00:55:00

this at all. Our father asked for us forgiveness of our sins. Indeed, we have been sinners. He said, I will ask forgiveness for you from my Lord. Indeed it is he who is the Forgiving and Merciful. And when they entered upon the use of he took his parents to himself, he hugged them, and he said enter Egypt, Allah willing, safe and secure, and he raised his parents upon the throne, and all of them bow to him in prostration. And he said

00:55:00--> 00:55:44

My father, this is the explanation of my vision of before this is my dream. My dream is coming to reality. My Lord has made it a reality. And he was certainly good to me when he took me out of prison and brought you here from Bedouin life after shaitan had induced estrangement between me and my brothers. Indeed, my lord is subtle in what He wills. Indeed it is he who is the knowing the wise, so the dream of use of artists and amla he saw the sun, the moon, the stars prostrating to him. Now, this was actually happening. You see, the sun isn't the day and the moon is in the night, and the stars are also in the night. But here, they were together in his dream they were together.

00:55:44--> 00:56:32

And we see that right now was also a beautiful family reunion, where use of his time and his brothers and his parents, all of them were united again, after having been separated. My Lord, look at his girl, or because at a tiny middle model, where I learnt any mentor will Hades, my Lord, You have given me something of sovereignty, if I have this, this is your gift. And you have taught me of the interpretation of dreams. He doesn't say, Oh, I got all of this because of my knowledge. No, he remembers the source of his knowledge. Allah gave me this knowledge or Creator of the heavens and the earth. You are my protector in this world, and in the hereafter caused me to die a Muslim and

00:56:32--> 00:57:22

join me with the righteous. There is no pride over here. He is so humble over here and soprano law, he has everything. He has sovereignty, he has knowledge, he has his family, he's on good terms with his brothers. And his heart is attached to who to Allah, tala Li, you are my Wali, all along, you have always been there. And this is a fact. Because people, even those who we love, and we trust and they love us in return. They cannot always be by our side. We cannot always have them with us. The reality is that people no matter how good they are, no matter how sincere they are, they're not permanent. They're not dependable, because they're imperfect. The only being that is dependable is

00:57:22--> 00:58:09

Allah subhanaw taala so befriend him under Willie ye. And how do you befriend Allah soprano tada that no matter what situation you are in, you have Taqwa you have subban you do your son, you remember that he is watching you. You act as though you can see him. You are my Wali, in this world, and in the Hereafter, and what is his concern to a funny Muslim and we're unhappy besides the hate. You see, when dunya leaves our hands we become poor. But when the dunya leaves the heart, then a person becomes a Wali of Allah use of it Sam is not attached to any of these worldly things. He is attached to a loss of panel data. And he prays for death upon Islam, that Oh Allah when I die, I ask

00:58:09--> 00:58:56

you, that you enable me to surrender to you even at that moment. Because remember, the blessings can only be complete and perfect on a person. If that person leaves this world in a state of submission to Allah, and this is why we should pray for a good end Allahumma telefono mostly mean what a hyena mostly mean? Well, how can I be slightly he later Hosea what am of tuning that, oh, Allah raises as Muslims meaning when we leave this world allow us to die as Muslims. The final draft of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alone little fiddly. What how many will hypnotize Rafiq, Oh ALLAH forgive me Have mercy on me and join me with the best company with the highest company. They only

00:58:56--> 00:59:38

come in and lie that is from the news of the unseen which we reveal to you, and you are not with them. When they put together their plan. Well, he conspired. So you only know of this through revelation. And most of the people, although use try for it are not believers. They don't believe they don't understand. And you do not ask of them for it any payment. It is not except a reminder to the worlds and how many assigned within the heavens and the earth do their Passover while they while they there from our turning away. And most of them believe in Allah, except while they associate others with him. Then as they live their lives in such heedlessness, that they don't pay attention

00:59:38--> 00:59:59

to Allah or his ayat. And do they feel secure, that there will not come to them an overwhelming aspect of the punishment of Allah or that the hour will not come upon them suddenly, while they do not perceive they should fear Allah say this is my way I invite to Allah with insight, and I and those who follow me and Exalted is Allah

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

And I am not of those who associate others with him. And we sent not before you as messengers, except men, to whom we revealed from among the people of the cities. So have they not traveled through the earth and observed how was the end of those before them, and the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah, then will you not use reason. They continued until when the messenger is despaired. And we're certain that they had been denied their came to them our victory, meaning when things got really tough, as we see, even in the story of use of a setup that allows help came of them victory came, and whoever we willed, was saved, and our punishment cannot be

01:00:41--> 01:01:29

repelled from the people who are criminals. There was certainly in their stories, a lesson for those of understanding never was the poor on a narration invented, but a confirmation of what was before it, and the detailed explanation of all things, and guidance and mercy for people who believe so where the story is a proof of the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam of the Quran, it also teaches us many lessons. But those lessons are only relevant to those of understanding the story encourages us to observe the possible errors and to put our faith in Allah. This story teaches us that ultimately, Allah is in control of everything, that things are not happening at random, the

01:01:29--> 01:02:13

gifts that you have the losses that you experience, the freedoms that Allah has given you. The restrictions that you experience in life, all of them are planned by Allah. This is not all random. So if you want to be successful, through the different stages of your life, through the different trials, through the darkness, and through light, then you have to have suburbs, and Tacoma because they are the foundation of success. Similar to Lord Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, Alif Lam, Meem LA. These are the verses of the book, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth. But most of the people do not believe it is Allah, Who erected the heavens without pillars that you can

01:02:13--> 01:02:58

see. Then he established Himself above the Throne, and made subject the sun and the moon, each running its course for a specified term, he arranges each matter, he details the signs that you may have the meeting with your Lord be certain surprised Allah, the sun and the moon are subjected. It means that if the sun and the moon, which are the biggest things that we see in the sky, this means that the rest of the stars are also subjected. And there are mentioned here specifically, because they're the most obvious and most useful to us, and it is he who spread the earth, and placed there in firmly set mountains and rivers. And from all of the fruits he made there in two minutes, he

01:02:58--> 01:03:46

causes the night to cover the day, indeed, and that are Signs for people who give thought. So we see that even in fruits, there are different kinds of different varieties. And in certain produce, there's the male and the female end, this is mentioned in the Quran, and within the land, our neighboring plots, and gardens of grape vines, and crops and palm trees, growing several from a root or otherwise watered with one water, but we make some of them exceed others in quality of fruit. Indeed, in that our signs are people who reason, so proud of the water is the same, the Earth is the same, and at times the tree is the same, but the fruit, any one is sweet, more delicious, and the

01:03:46--> 01:04:38

other is less delicious. So all of this variation that Allah has created in the creation, and in terms of different types of land, different types of plants, different types of, you know, flavors, different types of, you know, different levels of quality, all of this variation. This is not just something that we benefit from and use. But this is something that should provoke us to reflect over this life, over how fragile life is and how knowledgeable how merciful how wise how perfect, the creator is. And if you are admonished, sorry. And if you are astonished, if you are amazed. That astonishing, is they're saying, when we are dust, will we indeed be brought into a new creation,

01:04:38--> 01:04:59

meaning if their disbelief amazes you, then yes, what they say is truly astonishing. It is shocking. Those are the ones who have disbelieved in their Lord, and those will have shackles upon their necks, and those are the companions of the Fire. They will abide there in eternally. They impatiently urge you

01:05:00--> 01:05:48

To bring about evil before a good meeting instead of asking for guidance, they asked for punishment, while there has already occurred before them similar punishments to what they demand and indeed your Lord is full of forgiveness for the people, despite their wrongdoing, and indeed your Lord is severe in penalty, soprano law, what a balance. Your Lord is laduma filati leanness, and he is also Nasha de douleur calm, so always remained between hope and fear that he has Allah forgives people, despite their wrongdoing. But he has also made clear that his punishment is severe. So a person should neither become overly fearful, because then that leads to despair. Nor should a person become overly

01:05:48--> 01:06:31

hopeful, because this leads to transgression, we should have both fear and hope, but from the to slightly more hope, because having more hope is encouraging. It is something that motivates a person, we learned that a man was close to his death and the Prophet sallallahu already said, I'm asked him, How do you feel? And he said, I have hope in Allah. But I also fear my sins. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, these two things meaning hope and fear, do not coexist in the heart of a person in a situation like this. But Allah will give him that which he hopes for, and keeps him safe from that which he fears. And those who disbelieved, say, Why has assigned not been

01:06:31--> 01:07:18

sent down to him from his Lord, You are only a warrior, and for every people is a guide, the Prophet sallallahu Ortiz and it was not sent to, you know, show miracle upon miracle this was not supposed to be like a show, a magic show. No, he was supposed to give warning. Allah knows what every female carries whether human or animal, what is in the uterus, what is in the womb of a woman, and what is going on inside of her body. Sometimes even she is completely unaware. Allah knows what is going on inside, what she is carrying, and what the wombs lose or exceed, because there is growth inside the womb and a times outside the womb, outside the uterus, any and how things appear and the disappear.

01:07:18--> 01:08:05

All of this alone knows about it. And a woman also has no idea of what's going on inside of her body. And everything with him is by deal measure, meaning everything has a specific quantity. And you see for a woman to go through a miscarriage for example, is very painful for a woman to live with. And to live with certain conditions can be very painful fibroids and you know, other conditions very, very painful. But remember, everything is by do measure. Allah knows what is going on. So ask him for Shiva asked him to heal you to take that pain away. Early will he be with Shahada? He is the Knower of the unseen and witnessed and Kabira Muhtar, the grand the exalted This

01:08:05--> 01:08:52

is why express his glory, glorify Him, exalt Him and say when you begin so Allah Subhana Allah Houma will be handed What about or cast smoke? What are our larger look, whether either have a look expresses glory, because these words are the most beloved words to Allah subhanaw taala. So what will mean comb, it is the same to him concerning you, whether one conceals his speech or one publicize it, publicizes it, and whether one is hidden by night, or conspicuous among others by day, meaning no matter what a person does, expresses verbally or keeps it in his heart, or a person is alone or somewhere out and about. There is no place no state, no condition that is hidden from Allah

01:08:52--> 01:09:45

soprano. Tada la humar Akiva to mania day 100 fee for Luna huimin amarilla. Not only does Allah know about where we are, what we're doing what we're thinking, but Allah has also appointed angels over us. So it is said for each one are successive angels before and behind him. Successive angels because these angels come in shifts they came to they come in turns, and these angels are before and behind every person. What do they do, who protect him, they protect the person, how, by the decree of Allah Subhana Allah, angels guarding human beings from the front and from the back. Any we don't care that much about ourselves as much as Allah subhanaw taala cares about us. We don't guard and

01:09:45--> 01:09:59

protect ourselves as much as Allah subhana wa tada guards us and he is watching us and his knowledge alone is enough. But along with that, he has also appointed angels any look at the length to which he Allah is guarding.

01:10:00--> 01:10:47

Cuz he's protecting us, and that shows His endless mercy, his llama, which I had said, there is no person who does not have an there is no person except that he has an angel appointed to protect him when he is asleep, and when he is awake, against what against the jinn, other people, and even savage beasts, none of these come to him, but the angel tells it, keep away, stay away, except for that which Allah has given permission to befall him, then the angel moves aside and what is meant to hit the person hits him, what is meant to reach him, and infect him infects him. So it is only by the protection of Allah. And especially when a person recites I could see, we learned that when a

01:10:47--> 01:11:32

person besides idle could see that in the night, especially before going to bed, then there is a half a guardian that is appointed by Allah over that person who will not allow shaitan to come near him until the morning and if you say 10 times after motive, La Ilaha Illa De La Hoya de vous la sharika level woodco Allah will hound you he will you meet will who are alike Alicia in Cardiff, you say this 10 times after Muslim. Then we learned that the angels guardian angels in the bay come to protect a person for the entire night. Karbala. Well, he said that if Allah had not appointed angels to guard when you were eating when you are drinking, and in your privacy, then certainly the jinn

01:11:32--> 01:12:15

would have snatched you away, meaning you would not be alive, you would not be able to live. So Allah subhanaw taala has appointed these angels to guard us to guard us against all types of evils and harms and dangers those we can see and those that we cannot see those that are invisible to us. And these angels also guard our deeds the faloona woman under the law, the guard our deeds. So we're in our Lake home the healthy lane killam and Kathy been yada yada Muna metaphor alone. So Allah knows what we say and what we keep inside. And the angels also do. Which is why when a person intends to do something good, the angel records it as a good deed. When a person actually does it.

01:12:15--> 01:12:58

It's recorded as 10. And when a person intends to do something evil, it's not recorded. But if a person changes his mind that Noah suffered a lot, this was not right, than the angels recorded as something good. And when a person intends and when a person does something bad, then the angels do not record the sin immediately. They wait for some time. So yeah, for Luna woman amarilla, guarding us how grateful we should be to Allah subhanaw taala for the blessing of these angels, Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for people ill there is no repelling it and there is not for them besides Him. Any patron.

01:12:58--> 01:13:40

It is he who shows you lightning, causing fear and aspiration and generates the heavy clouds soprano low what we see in the sky, and lightning massive clouds, different colors. They inspire us with fear and hope at the same time. Any it's also beautiful, yet so frightening. It's all inspiring. And this is why when we look at what isn't the sky with for example, lightning and huge clouds. Yes, we should feel happy that Okay, there will be rain and there is rain, and that is Allah's mercy. But there should also be fear, because that is how the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam responded when there was a storm approaching.

01:13:41--> 01:14:27

And the thunder exalts Allah with praise of him and we learned in the narration that a valid Thunder alarm is also the name of an angel. And the sound is actually the sound of thunder is the sound of that Angel glorifying of LA, one Mullah. He ketamine he fatty and the angels as well from fear of him, soprano Allah, this is what we should do. When we feel fear of Allah, we should glorify Allah, we should do the spear. And he sends thunderbolts and strikes there with whom He wills while they dispute about Allah, meaning here they are forgetting Allah disputing about him, Does God Exist? How many gods are there? What are the attributes of God? Is God here or there? Is he above? Or is he

01:14:28--> 01:14:28

there any?

01:14:30--> 01:14:58

This is so despicable that we are just wasting our time disputing about Allah. Even amongst Muslims, there's so many debates and so much dispute concerning Allah subhanaw taala. And this is something that we should be fearful of. And see this as mentioned when we use the donor filler. Well, who didn't we have, when you talk about Allah, talk about him with absolute respect, and he is severe an assault.

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

So when

01:15:00--> 01:15:14

We hear thunder and E we should have fear of Allah, our beloved ones obaidul de la Mourinho when he would hear thunder, he would become quiet. And he would say, super Hana man, you said be harar to be handy one mila ecademy

01:15:15--> 01:15:16

he would say

01:15:18--> 01:16:10

Subhana my new Serbian behavoir to be handy one Miller economic activity, that Glory be to the one who whom the thunder praises with his praise. And the angels also glorify out of his fear. So when we hear the sound of thunder, this is not a time to keep talking, and keep, you know, discussing random things. This is a time that we become silent, we hear the sound of thunder, we allow ourselves to feel afraid of Allah subhanaw taala and then channel that fear into glorifying and praising him. Lahu Dawa, to help to Him alone is the supplication of truth. And those they call upon besides Him, do not respond to them with a thing except as one who stretches his hand toward water

01:16:10--> 01:16:52

from afar, calling it to reach his mouth, but it will never reach it, meaning of a person who wants water, and he just extends his hand and says, Come here, come here, it's never going to come. And just like that, when a person calls upon the creation, worshiping the creation, then there is going to be no answer. And the supplication of the disbelievers is not but in error, meaning it is futile It is useless, and to Allah prostrates whoever is within the heavens and the earth, willingly or by compulsion, and their shadows as well in the mornings and the afternoons. So when our body our shadow prostrates to Allah, we should prostrate to a low willingly and this is why this this is an I

01:16:52--> 01:17:33

have sent you the meaning when you do it to our when you recite it, or when you listen to its recitation, then you should also make such that if possible, make such that willingly, to practically exhibit that submission to Allah, that Allah I surrender to you by choice, say, who is Lord of the heavens and earth, say, Allah say, Have you been taken besides him Allah is not possessing even for themselves any benefit or any harm, say, is the blind equivalent to the seeing, or is darkness equivalent to light or have they attribute it to a lot of partners who created like his creation, so that the creation of each seemed similar to them, say, Allah is the Creator of all

01:17:33--> 01:18:23

things, and he is the one the prevailing, he sends down water from the sky, rain and, and valleys flow according to their capacity. And the torrent, the flood carries a rising foam, and from that, or which the heat in the fire desiring adornments and utensils is a form like it, meaning when such metals are heated in the fire, then form appears at the surface at the time also. Thus, Allah presents the example of truth and falsehood. As for the fall, eventually, it vanishes being cast off, you throw it away. But as for that, which benefits the people that gold, indeed that remains on the earth, that Thus does Allah present examples. So we see that rain is mentioned over here. And we

01:18:23--> 01:19:06

learned that revealed knowledge is similar to rain. Because with this knowledge is the life of the heart, just as with rain, is the life of the body and the earth. And the place of knowledge is the heart. And just as different types of land, respond differently to rain, hearts also respond differently to knowledge. Some river beds are such that they're very deep, very spacious, and they're able to contain a lot of water, they fill up with rainwater. And some hearts are also like that. They make room for a lot of knowledge and wisdom. They accept it, they act upon it, they believe in it. So Allah subhanaw taala increases them in their knowledge in their understanding, he

01:19:06--> 01:19:51

blesses them with wisdom. And there are other people who have very little capacity. There's no idea like this. No, this is uh, this is problematic. But what about this? And what about that, so each person takes according to their capacity, and according to their interest. And we see that when when there's rain and the river beds, you know, they, they they get flooded, the garbage, the foam rises to the surface, just like that when the heart is filled with knowledge revealed knowledge, you are able to recognize your own weaknesses. You're able to recognize your own deficiencies, they rise to the surface knowledge allows you to see yourself to understand yourself. So now you have the option.

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

What are you going to do? Are you going to get rid of that garbage that has appeared to you? Or are you just going to let it be and putrefy and remember that when there's

01:20:00--> 01:20:45

garbage that is sitting on top of water, eventually it's going to rot and it's going to make the water dirty as well. So, once you come to know of your weaknesses, then work on getting rid of them seek forgiveness from Allah soprano Tada. And then we see that similar foam and dirt appears on, on the order that it is heated in the fire. Like for example, when gold is heated in the fire, it is purified. And as it is purified, that you know the dirt appears at the top. And you know going through heat is something painful. And just like that, Allah subhanaw taala puts a person in hardship through different life experiences. And that is when a person is able to apply what they

01:20:45--> 01:21:39

know apply their knowledge and difficulties purify a person just as heat fire, it purifies gold and silver, then you're able to become something before it was just or and now after being heated and purified that or has turned into a useful utensil or an adornment. So we see the benefit of knowledge here and life experiences. So accept them and improve yourself with what you learn. And, and and allow the different life experiences to teach you different lessons so that you can become better than before. For those who have responded to their Lord and responding to a Lost Planet. It means obeying a law, responding to his decrees, with patience with ribba. With with acceptance. So

01:21:39--> 01:22:23

for those who have responded to their Lord, with obedience, Allah commands, they accept the obey, Allah decrees this they surrender. So for them is the best reward. But those who did not respond to him, if they had all that isn't the earth entirely and the like of it with it, they would attempt to ransom themselves thereby those will have the worst account severe interrogation for all of their sins, and yet no forgiveness and their refuge as hell. And Richard is the resting place, then is He who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth, like one who is blind, can they be the same? No, they will only be reminded who are people of understanding

01:22:25--> 01:23:12

who those who fulfill the covenant of Allah and do not break the contract. And those who join that which Allah has ordered to be joined and fear their Lord and are afraid of the evil of their account. Several qualities are mentioned over here. One is that they join what Allah has ordered to be joined and that is blood ties, blood relationships, and these are definitely difficult to maintain, and even harder to join once they have broken once they have become problematic once they have become estranged. But if remoto de la Mourinho, he said that he who fears his Lord because you see how she has mentioned COVID mentioned in the same ayah he who fears his Lord and joins ties of

01:23:12--> 01:23:24

relationship, then his life will be extended, his wealth will be increased, and his family will love him. Look at what use of release and empty isn't he's such an excellent example for us.

01:23:25--> 01:24:00

And even Norma didn't say this based on no evidence the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught something similar. And he said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no person opens the door of gift giving to mend relationships, except that Allah will open the door of abundance for him. A lot of you see when it comes to giving gifts we like being generous to our friends, and you know, making good donations etc. But when it comes to relatives, we become a little stingy over there, because relatives, given that they are close to us.

01:24:01--> 01:24:45

And given that they expect a lot from us, they do end up hurting us directly or indirectly, right it happens and the people who have hurt us and yet we cannot be any cut off from them, it becomes very difficult to be good to them. So still those who yes saloon those who join the relationship that Allah subhanaw taala created because these relationships end we don't choose ourselves It is Allah who decides. So we don't have the right to cut our relatives of. So when a person is generous towards his relatives, why, in order to mend the relationship, then Allah subhanaw taala will open the door of abundance for the servant meaning Allah will give him a lot of wealth alone will

01:24:45--> 01:24:59

increase as well for him. So hamdulillah This is the month of Ramadan readers coming up an excellent time to give gifts to our relatives. Now you might say that we are in lockdown. There is also another gift called read gift there either money which will help

01:25:00--> 01:25:44

Vanilla these days can be easily transferred in different ways. So think about which relatives you're going to spend on to earn this reward. Will Latina suburu and those who are patient, why are they patient, seeking the face of their Lord and establish prayer and spend from what We have provided for them secretly and publicly and prevent evil with good soprano law. We had little owner bit hesitant at this a year. They avert evil with good, those will have the good consequence of this whole. So yes, mistakes happen. You know, sometimes there are fights between relatives, but then apologize, follow it with something good make up for it, in one way or another. gardens have

01:25:44--> 01:26:08

perpetual residents, they will enter them with whoever were righteous among their fathers, their spouses and their descendants, and the angels will enter upon them from every gate saying, peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. And excellent is the final home soprano Allah. Allah will join families together in general also, along with your loving home,

01:26:09--> 01:26:56

and the angels will congratulate them. But those who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it, and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined, they cut, they sever their relationships, and they spread by that corruption, corruption on Earth, for them as the curse and they will have the worst home. Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts it, and they rejoice in the worldly life, while the worldly life is not compared to the Hereafter, except brief enjoyment. So worldly life is a brief enjoyment, the life of the Hereafter, that is permanent enjoyment. So aim for that, strive for that, but it is not for free, you have to do sub, because you see the angel

01:26:56--> 01:27:31

said, when they when the angels enter upon them, they will say, peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. So funny home, it had to do nearly there are some people who just rejoice over worldly life, they're very happy with the things of this life with the accomplishments of this life. And okay and 100 of course, these are blessings of Allah, but that should not be our ultimate goal and concern. And those who disbelieved, say, Why has assigned not been sent down to him from his Lord say, Indeed, Allah leaves a stray whom He wills and guides to himself, whoever turns back to him,

01:27:33--> 01:28:05

those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah and letting me know what takelma in Nakuru, bumili killer, Allah be the killer he lahaie turtleman email kulu. unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah, hearts are assured. Remember, that the heart was made for Allah azza wa jal, the heart is supposed to be obedient to Allah, that is the function of the heart. in Hades we learn in the lillahi an ear to mean

01:28:07--> 01:29:00

that Allah has certain vessels from among the people of the earth, and what are those vessels, what are needed to become to lube the vessels of your Lord or the hearts of rebellion slightly hanaa is righteous servants. So, the heart is made for Allah. It is supposed to be obedient to Allah, it is supposed to surrender to Allah, it is supposed to remember Allah. And when you do when you fulfill the purpose of or the reason behind why something exists, only then can it be healthy. Only then can it be sound. If you don't use it, it's going to deteriorate over time, if you misuse it. Again, it's going to deteriorate over time. So the health of the heart, the soundness of the heart, depends on

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

what on the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala by giving the heart what it needs, this is why this fact has been mentioned over here, that unquestionably it is with the remembrance of Allah, that the hearts are assured meaning not without the the remembrance of Allah.

01:29:19--> 01:29:59

And even if a person momentarily feeds you know, find some joy and you know, reassurance and comfort by being distracted from Allah subhanaw taala that is not real comfort, it is just, you know, soothing yourself temporarily, it is not going to solve the problem. So, the vicar of Allah, that is what truly brings joy and reassurance and comfort to the heart. Now, sometimes a person feels that you know what, I am making liquid, but I still feel very restless. So look at how the ayah begins. alladhina amanu those who believe and

01:30:00--> 01:30:43

Their hearts find assurance with the remembrance of Allah say begins with Amen. So check the state of your Amen. And amen doesn't just mean that you have belief in your heart. It means that you look at your actions, you look at your words, how strong is your obedience to Him. So when you combine obedience with faith and remembrance, that is when you will truly find comfort and joy. Without it, there can be no comfort, and the deacon of Allah, any This is what makes the heart alive. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm setting the example of the one who celebrates the praises of his Lord in comparison to the one who does not, is like that of a living creature compared to a dead

01:30:43--> 01:31:15

one. So, the person who remembers Allah, their heart is alive, those who have believed and unrighteous deeds you see again, Eman is mentioned. And with a man Armand Salim is mentioned righteous deeds has mentioned, a good state is theirs and a good return. Meaning in this life, they're in a good state, regardless of the circumstances, and because of that, they will have a good return. dunia is good, is good. Thus have we sent down to you thus have we sent you to a community before.

01:31:16--> 01:31:57

Thus we have sent you to a community before which other communities have passed on. So you might recite to them that which we reveal to you while they disbelieve in the Most Merciful, say, he is my lord because he was sick enough market they didn't believe in unwire man, say he is my Lord, there is no data except him upon him I rely and to him is my return. And if there was any Koran by which the mountains would be removed, or the Earth would be broken apart, or the dead would be made to speak, it would be disqualified because the machine apoco would keep demanding other miracles right? So it is mentioned that you know this quote on is the miracle This is it. But to Allah belongs the

01:31:57--> 01:32:43

affair entirely. Thus, then have those who believed not accepted that had Allah willed, He would have guided the people, all of them. And those who disbelieved, do not cease to be struck for what they have done by calamity, or it will descend near their home, until there comes the promise of Allah. Indeed, Allah does not fail in his promise, and already were other messengers ridiculed before you and I extended the time of those who disbelieved then I sees them and how terrible was my penalty. So we see there is a rest bite, and then time is up. fm and who are called emona, la colina sin Bhima, cassava, that is He who is a maintainer of every soul, meaning Allah subhanaw taala. He

01:32:43--> 01:33:25

maintains every creature, knowing what it has earned, like any other. No, there's no comparison, but to Allah, they have attributes and partners, say, name them, or do you inform him of that which he knows not upon the earth, or of what is apparent of speech, meaning, you've come up with these so called Gods which are just figments of your imagination, there is no reality. Rather, their own plan has been made attractive to those who disbelieve and they have been diverted from the way and whomever Allah leaves astray, there will be for him no guide, for them will be punishment in the life of this world. And the punishment of the Hereafter is more severe, and they will not have from

01:33:25--> 01:34:12

Allah any protector. The example of Paradise, which the righteous have been promised, is that beneath it, rivers flow, its fruit is lasting, and it's shade. That is the consequence for the righteous. And the consequence for the disbelievers is the fire. And the believers among those to whom we have given the previous scripture, rejoice at what has been revealed to you. But among the opposing factions are those who deny part of it. Say, I have only been commanded to worship Allah and not associate anything with him, to him, I invite unto him as my return. And thus, we have revealed it as an Arabic legislation. The Quran is an Arabic, otherwise, the people of the time

01:34:12--> 01:34:51

around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they would not understand because of the language barrier, and if you should follow their inclinations, after what has come to you of knowledge, meaning, when a person has knowledge, then they should not follow the desires of people, the whims and the assumptions, the lies of people. If you do that, you would not have against Allah, any ally or any protector. And we have already sent messengers before you and assigned to them wives and descendants they were human. And it was not for a messenger to come with a sign except by permission of Allah. And for every term is a decree for everything is a fixed time so trust alas plan, Allah

01:34:51--> 01:34:59

eliminates what He wills or confirms. And with him is the mother of the book meeting low held by fooled where everything is recorded, and whether we show you part

01:35:00--> 01:35:37

To what we promised them or take you and death upon you is only the duty of notification and upon us is the account so you do your job and leave the rest to a law Have they not seen that we set up on the land reducing it from its borders, and this is any physically this could be physically that literally the earth is shrinking in size. Or it could mean that the freedom that people have is reducing by day. And that happened at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Oradea center where you know, more and more people were embracing Islam. So those who opposed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he they were losing their freedom. And we experienced this today that we are we are

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

losing our freedom. And you were not able to go freely out of our own houses. We are confined to our own homes. nanpu Hammond Otto raffia he This is a warning. Don't they see this? Don't they learn from this? And Allah decides there is no adjuster have his decision alone. But when Elon decides l'amour optimally hooked me, no one can change his decision.

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

And he is swift in account and those before them had plotted but to Allah belongs the plan entirely so people can do whatever they want. It is Allah's decision that prevails. He knows what every soul earns. So focus on that, and the disbelievers will know for whom is the final home. And those who have disbelieved, say, less than mortal Salah you are not a messenger sale Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kafa biLlahi shahidan benei ouabain accom sufficient is Allah as witness between me and you, and the witness of whoever has knowledge of the Scripture. I don't need you to testify because Allah His testimony is enough. Surat Ibrahim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. And if lamb rah This is a

01:36:48--> 01:37:38

Book which We have revealed to you, that you might bring mankind out of darkness into the light. So the Quran enlightens people, it enlightens the minds, the lives of people, it is most progressive. It brings people out of darkness, darkness of worry of fear, of confusion, of doubt, of disbelief of ignorance, but how, by permission of their Lord by his tofi, to the path of the exalted in mind the Praiseworthy, who is he? He is Allah, to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is on the earth, and we'll go to the disbelievers from a severe punishment. Who are they? unleaded is there, a Buddha, higher the dunya and a hero, the ones who prefer the worldly life over the

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

Hereafter, you see, yes, the Buddha, this is the love worldly life a great deal, so much so that they give it preference over the hereafter. So they would rather have worldly and enjoyment and worldly benefits than the reward in the hereafter. And this is why they don't care about how they make their dunya how they earn worldly benefits, even if it's through unlawful and unfair and immoral ways. And by that they put their hereafter at risk. So those who do this, and also avert people from the way of Allah by their low cheap ways, for example, seeking to make it seem deviant finding imaginary faults and Islam. Those are in extreme error, they're making a huge mistake, they

01:38:23--> 01:39:08

will never be successful. And we did not send any messenger except speaking in the language of his people, to speak clearly for them. And Allah sends a stray there by whom He wills and guides whom He will and he is the Exalted in Might the wise. And we certainly sent Moosa with our signs saying, bring out your people from darknesses into the light, and remind them of the days of a law, a young lad, this refers to major historical events, remind your people on what happened in the past. Why, because indeed, in that are Signs legally so bad in Chicago, for everyone patient and grateful, you see someone and should have been mentioned together, because basically, there are two sides of the

01:39:08--> 01:39:09

same coin.

01:39:10--> 01:39:46

You see, either a person has an ease, or they're in difficulty. So subud is to remember Allah, to remain obedient to Him in hardship, and sugar is to remember Allah and be obedient to Him in ease. So in every circumstance, subud and chaker means that a person remembers a law and they're focused on fulfilling their duty to Allah. Now, sugar gratitude is something that you know, a lot of a lot of people talk about, but this is something that we don't fully understand. Sugar is that a person recognizes the gift of the giver.

01:39:48--> 01:40:00

And they have feelings of love, admiration, humility, and submission. This is gratitude. This is sugar. So the person who does not recognize the

01:40:00--> 01:40:48

Blessing is unaware of it cannot offer gratitude. And the person who recognizes the gift but does not recognize the giver of the gift than even he cannot offer gratitude. And the person who recognizes the blessing and the giver, but rejects the blessing by refusing it. He's also not showing gratitude, and the person who recognizes the blessing, and he recognizes the giver of the blessing, but does not show humility before the giver, nor loves him, nor is pleased with him. He is also not showing gratitude. Gratitude isn't the person who recognizes the blessing, the giver of the blessing, he acknowledges the blessing is humble before the giver, loves him, is pleased with him,

01:40:48--> 01:41:40

and uses the blessing in a way that the giver would like it. That person is showing gratitude. So even though I am said, to be thankful to Allah implies manifesting the effects of Allah's blessings on you. So this means that the heart witnesses these blessings, the heart acknowledges Allah and the blessing and loves him for it. He loves a love for it and your ally, you gave me this, I love you. The tongue acknowledges these blessings and praises him for it. And then the body submits and obeys him because of it. This is sugar. Because sometimes we say that yes, I am grateful. But are we really grateful? This is something that we need to, you know, check in ourselves. And recall the

01:41:40--> 01:42:24

children of Israel when Musa alayhis salaam said to his people, remember the favor of Allah upon you, when he saved you from the people of our own, who were afflicting you with the worst torment and we're slaughtering your sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord. And remember, when your Lord proclaimed let in Shackleton let us see the knuckle if you are grateful, I will surely increase you. But if you deny indeed my punishment is severe, have a beer aside, that if you are grateful, meaning for my favors, then let us see the nickel I will give you even more. And this is why it is said that sugar not only preserves blessings, it also brings

01:42:24--> 01:43:11

more for in the Chicago idol mo Jude, it preserves what is present was seidelman code, it brings what is missing, has an anniversary said if you are grateful for our las favors, then I will give you even more ability to worship me. So that as he then knuckle means I will give you more ability to worship me because sugar is a form of Riba. So when you are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala, Allah will allow you to worship him even more, in even better ways. So we need to think of ourselves because sometimes we see that it's the month of Ramadan. And really, we don't have many responsibilities in the sense that because of lockdown, we're home. Okay, life is different, but

01:43:11--> 01:43:46

it's definitely easier. But still, if a person is not able to do either, they're not able to worship a lot than they need to check themselves. Maybe I'm not being grateful. Because sugar draws you close to Allah. Sugar is something that earns you Allah approval. And only when Allah is pleased with you, will he give you the trophy, to worship Him? This is why express gratitude, regardless of your situation, regardless, because there are blessings that are visible to us and then there are blessings that are invisible to us, that are not known to us.

01:43:47--> 01:44:32

So this is why in good times, say 100 in law, and in difficulty, say 100 Elahi I love holy hell 100 in every state as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, even an illness, when a person is sick, or when a person is in difficulty, they should express gratitude to Allah. Why there is a hadith in which we learned that when the slave is ill, Allah sends two angels to him. And these angels look at what this person says to his visitors. The words that he says if he praises Allah glorifies him, thanks. And then they take that up to Allah. And Allah already knows. But Allah says, If I make my slave die, I will make him enter Jenna. And if I heal him, I will replace his flesh

01:44:32--> 01:44:59

with better flesh and his blood with better blood and I will face his evil cents. So Pamela, any gratitude, even in pain, even in difficulty, because, okay, there are blessings. You know, I am in pain, but there's still so many blessings. And even if I can't see much, I cannot recognize many blessings. There are certainly Boulting hidden blessings which I need to be grateful for. And in gratitude is something

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

That leads to hellfire. The Prophet sallallahu already said I mentioned that other people have gender Miss, and for selke and when he was asked to why they said these are the women who are extremely ungrateful, neither grateful when given something nor patient when tested. So any gratitude begins where, in our closest interactions, that for example, how is it that uh, that a person is towards their spouse towards their children? Are we always complaining? Or are we appreciative? Any This is a lifestyle you know, this is a way of thinking in a manner, a disposition. We'll call a Moosa and Masada is Sam said, If you should disbelieve you and whoever is

01:45:45--> 01:46:24

on the earth entirely. Indeed, Allah is free of need, and praiseworthy has there not reached you the news of those before you, the people of New and odd and some mood and those after them. No one knows them. But Allah, their names even are not known. They're messengers brought them clear proofs. But they returned their hands to their mouth in shock and denial. And they said, Indeed, we disbelieve in that with which you have been sent. And indeed We are about that to which you invite us in disquieting doubt. It's not convincing. Their messenger said, Can there be doubt about Allah, Creator of the heavens and earth who made all of this, he invites you that he may forgive you of

01:46:24--> 01:47:02

your sins, and he delays your death for a specified time for a specified term. He's giving you a chance. They said you are not but men like us, who wish to avert us from what our fathers were worshipping. So bring us a clear authority. Look at how they belittle the prophets. Their messengers said to them, we are only men like you. Yes, we are human. But Allah confers favor upon whom He wills of his servants. It has never been for us to bring you evidence except by permission of Allah and upon Allah let the believers rely and why should we not rely upon Allah, while he has guided us to our good ways, and we will surely be patient against whatever harm you should cause us

01:47:02--> 01:47:50

willingness to be run, Allah Ma, the tuna. So remember, Southern is over the different things that allow us to decrease in our lives. So for example, a person falls ill, there's something over that, but someone is also in the face of how people harm you people try to hurt you. And upon Allah, let those who would rely indeed rely and those who disbelieved set to their messengers, we will surely drive you out of our land, or you must return to our religion. So their Lord Inspire to them, we will surely destroy the wrongdoers and we will surely cause you to dwell in the land after them. But this is for who that is for he who fears my position and fears my threat. So this good promise of

01:47:50--> 01:48:37

living in gender, because when a new skin under common Alba, this could be of the world or it could refer to the home of the hereafter. And he This is for who the one who fears Allah, the One who fears his position, the one who fears Allah's warning. And remember, the believer does fear Allah, the believer fears disobeying Allah called me a half in our sight to be either biomin or the I fear that if I disobey my Lord, there will be punishment. And for the one who has fear of Allah is Jenna, what even half I'm a kamado be Jonathan for the one who fears the position of his Lord will be to gardens. And this fear is what allows a person to control themselves what a man and how from a comma

01:48:37--> 01:49:21

b one 100 up Saarinen Hawa the person who fears a position of his Lord and stops the knifes from following the desire for in nogen netta he and Mariah, then such a person will have gender as his abode and they requested victory from Allah and disappointed therefore, was every obstinate tyrant Jabbar in our need. You see Jabbar is such an arrogant person who doesn't think he owes anyone anything. And our need is a person who is stubborn and opposing to the truth. So such people will end up in hell before him as hell and he will be given a drink of permanent water. And this is the excretions from the wounds and burns of the people of hell stuff it'll law, he will gulp it, but

01:49:21--> 01:49:59

will hardly be able to swallow it. And death will come to him from everywhere meaning every part of his body, even the toes, any they will be on fire, you know in extreme pain, but he is not to die, and before him is a massive punishment. The example of those who disbelieve in their Lord is that their deeds are like ashes, which the wind blows forcefully on a stormy day. soprano law no use at all. they're unable to keep from what they earned a single thing. That is what is extreme error. Have you not seen that a lot

01:50:00--> 01:50:41

created the heavens and the earth and truth, if you will, he can do away with you and produce a new creation. And that is not difficult for Allah. And they will come out for judgment before Allah all together. And the week will say to those who are arrogant, indeed we were your followers, so can you avail us anything against the punishment of Allah, they will say, If Allah had guided us, we would have guided you. It is all the same for us. Whether we show intolerance or our patient, there is for us no place of escape, or stuck with a law. You see, when a person hopes for guidance in this world, and he is patient, then that will benefit a person. But if a person does not hope for guidance now

01:50:41--> 01:51:00

than hoping for guidance on the Day of Judgment, is not going to help. And then you see, they will say so on arlena, Jazeera, no savarna, it's the same, it's going to make no difference whether we are patient or we're impatient, our situation is not going to change in this life. If a person is patient allows health outcomes.

01:51:01--> 01:51:44

We'll call a shaytaan. And shaitan will say when the matter has been concluded, meaning when people have gender and gender when people have health or in health, then shaitan will speak he will give a hope. He will say Indeed, Allah had promised you the promise of truth. And I promised you, but I betrayed you. But I have no authority over you, except that I just invited you and you responded to me. So do not blame me. But blame yourselves. I cannot be called to your aid. So don't ask me for help. Nor can you be called to my aid. So stop crying. Indeed, I deny your association of me with Allah before indeed for that, indeed for the wrongdoers is a painful punishment.

01:51:45--> 01:51:48

Honey, these words are so

01:51:50--> 01:52:35

the federal law any basically is telling the people in hell to just be quiet, and leave him alone and not say anything to him and not even blame him. Because you see these words of shaitan they will neither add to their knowledge, nor will they bring the people of hell any relief. They will only make the people of hell feel even more angry, more upset, more regretful and more hurt. Yet what does he say? That I cannot respond to your aid to to crying meaning if you're crying to me, I cannot help you. So stop crying, stop screaming, stop blaming me. Stop at any if someone harms you, it hurts but then when they come in admitted to your face without any regret, or any pity any that

01:52:35--> 01:53:07

hurts even more. So any it's very obvious that shaitan is our enemy, enemy. And he's he will say himself that I only invited you and you responded to me. So remember, shaitan can only invite to sin, He cannot force us to sin. He only suggests and encourages he only makes him attractive attempting he does not force people he cannot force us. So remember, you have the power to refuse. You have the power to say our own to be loved.

01:53:09--> 01:53:31

And those who believed and did righteous deeds will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow abiding eternally they're in by permission of their Lord and their greeting there in will be PD Salaam in gender peaceful words there's so much love so much peace any alone. There will be selected from Allah there will be selected from the angels allow from one another.

01:53:32--> 01:53:39

So beautiful and unhealed. There's only blaming and shaming and saying you know what, don't even talk to me Don't even call me

01:53:40--> 01:54:09

what a difference. And I'm Tara Have you not considered how Allah presents an example making a good word and Kadima to pi yerba which is the heat La ilaha illa Allah, this is like a good word. This is like a good tree. Meaning a good word is like a good tree whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches are high in the sky, because this tree is tall and the branches all grow at the top.

01:54:10--> 01:54:52

What is this tree it is the date palm tree. So it produces its fruit all the time by permission of its Lord and Allah presents examples for the people that perhaps they will be reminded. So this is the date palm tree a bunch of date date fruit was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he recited this ayah and he said it is the date palm tree. So the believers Eman is being compared to the date palm tree. Why because a date palm tree is a date palm tree when it has three things when its root is firm and strong. When its trunk is straight and tall, and when its branches are all the way at the top. And this is how amen is it has a firm solid foundation in the heart

01:54:52--> 01:54:59

there is the pain affirmation in the heart, in the root and then the trunk there is acknowledgement at the tongue, the tongue

01:55:00--> 01:55:40

is also straight Hulu colon sadita. So a person acknowledges Eman says it expresses it with their tongue. And then there's tall that there's branches at the top, meaning that the believer also performs actions of a man. So a man has three components. There's the sleep in the heart, there is just deep in the heart meaning our formation in the heart. There is a cloud on the tongue affirmation on the tongue, and then there is an action on the limbs. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the example of the believer is like that of a date palm. Whatever you take from it will benefit you can eat the believer like the date palm is very useful, very

01:55:40--> 01:56:25

productive, which is why we see that it produces its fruit all the time because faith results in action. Faith includes action, by permission of its Lord meaning by Allah selfie, so ask Allah for selfies. And the example of a bad word of [???] is like a bad tree uprooted from the surface of the earth, not having any stability. Allah keeps from those who believe with the firm word in worldly life and in the Hereafter. And the lessons have strayed the wrongdoers and Allah does what He wills. So we see that when a person believes in La Ilaha in the law, they don't commit ship than Allah subhanaw taala is the Wali of such a person. So unless a penalty gives this person firmness, when in

01:56:25--> 01:57:11

this life, in worldly life, through their difficulties Allah tada gives them firmness and stability, courage and confidence. And in the hereafter also, which begins with the time of death, and the questioning in the grave. Remember the three questions? Who is your Lord? Who is your prophet? What is your religion? So when a believer is asked these questions, by the angels, the believer is given to us beat by Allah. So he is able to answer these questions. And so Allah is the one who gives stability. So, when a person is firm in their faith in this life, then Allah subhanaw taala will give them firmness in the grave of soul. And if the first stage of the hereafter the grave, if that

01:57:11--> 01:57:52

is good, then what follows will also be good, but a lovely mean those who do wrong what happens to them they go astray in this life, the slightest difficulties, make them weak. Why? Because the route that was not strong the faith in Allah was not there. And so such a person goes astray in this life and in the grave. Also, on the three questions will be asked we don't know Hadees. That asked for the the calf is the one who denies and in other versions, we don't ask for the monastic the hypocrite, the one who has doubt, anyone he will be questioned these three simple questions Who is your Lord? Who is your prophet? What is your deen? He will say Ha ha, la de he, I don't know. Don't

01:57:52--> 01:58:33

ask me. He will say I heard people saying something. So I also said it. I only said what I heard people saying meaning there was no real Eman in the hearts. There was no real acknowledgement at the tongue and the actions did not match. So then there will be severe punishment in the grave. And if a person fails here, then there will only be failure and ruin later. Have you not considered those who exchange the favor of a lover disbelief. Allah gave them favor blessing, but they switched it with disbelief. Meaning instead of a man, they showed denial and settled their people in the home of ruin. You see when a love gives us blessings that is an opportunity for growth. But there are people

01:58:33--> 01:59:16

who will not be grateful for that blessing. So they end up in more ruin. It is held which they will enter to burn and wretched is the settlement and they have attribute it to Allah equals to mislead people from his way. Say in Enjoy yourselves for indeed your destination is the fire. All Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell my servants who I believe to establish prayer and spend from what We have provided them with Eman there must be action spent how secretly and publicly why for your own benefit before a day comes in which there will be no exchange nor any friendships. It is Allah who created the heavens and the earth and sent down rain from the sky and produced there by some

01:59:16--> 01:59:55

fruits as provision for you and subjected for you the ships to sail through the sea by his command and subjected for you the rivers and he subjected for you the sun and the moon continuously in orbit and subjected for you the night and the day. And he gave you from all you asked of him what to do near Matala, he led to her so her and if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them because you can only count what you know what you can see what is finite and the blessings of Allah are beyond your knowledge, so many blessings that you don't even see. So how could you even count them? There are so many that you don't have the capacity to count them. Indeed,

01:59:55--> 01:59:59

mankind is generally most unjust and ungrateful.

02:00:00--> 02:00:30

Love workbook. And mention when Ibrahim said My Lord, make this city secure and keep me and my children away from worshipping idols, look at his concern, my Lord, indeed they have led astray mean these idols have led astray many among the people. So whoever follows me, then he is off me and whoever this and whoever disobeys me indeed you are yet Forgiving and Merciful. Allah code, he's so kind. He's praying for the guidance of their of his children of his progeny, and also for their forgiveness.

02:00:32--> 02:01:11

And the Prophet sallallahu really was and was also sent as a mercy to the worlds. So don't pray against people pray for their forgiveness and guidance. He said, Our Lord, I have settled some of my descendants in an uncultivated Valley, near your sacred house, our Lord, that they may establish prayer, so make hearts among the people inclined toward them, and provide for them from their fruits that they might be grateful. So remember, Ibrahim, or he said, I'm left is married and his mother had in Makkah, and he was abandoned, it was empty. There was nothing over there. No people, no plants, nothing. So he made the wrong he said, Oh Allah, you provide them, their physical

02:01:11--> 02:01:51

sustenance, fruits, their emotional sustenance, love, their spiritual sustenance, the ability to worship, and these are the hours that we should be making for our children as well. Our Lord, indeed you know, what we conceal and what we declare, and nothing is hidden from Allah on the earth, or in the heaven. Alhamdulillah Praise to Allah who has granted to me in old age is married and is how, indeed, my lord is the hearer of supplication Ibrahim, our listener was very old when his children were born, and he praises and glorifies a love for that. But unfortunately, many people if that was the case with them, they would probably complain that now at this time, a big Hollywood famous

02:01:51--> 02:02:41

celebrity woman, Dory, Yeti, he said, My Lord, make me an establisher of prayer. And many for my descendants Robin our cabin Dora our Lord and accept my supplication Robin ofili our Lord forgive me while he while he they want meaning me and my parents and my bullet and the believers when yo maya Kumar hisab, the day the account is established, so Ibrahima has center. It's so much higher than him, look at all the drawers that he's making, first, his sacrifices, and then his drawers, he made the URL for you. He said, I've been affiliate delivery The minute he made the offer all the believers allow a quote, and never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only

02:02:41--> 02:03:22

delays them for a day, when eyes will stare in horror racing ahead, their heads raised up their glands does not come back to them, because they will be unable to blink their eyes out of the terror that they will witness and their hearts will be void and warn the people of a day when the punishment will come to them. And those who did wrong will say Our Lord delay is for short term, we will answer your call and follow the messengers but it will be said had you not sworn before that for you there would be no cessation Didn't you think that your life would forever be good and you lived among the dwellings of those who wronged themselves and it had become clear to you how we

02:03:22--> 02:04:04

dealt with them. Yet you persisted in your denial and in your in gratitude. And we presented for you many examples, but you took no heed and they had planned their plan. But with Allah is recorded their plan allows full control over their plan, even if their plan had been sufficient to do away with the mountains. For that there's a vanilla mostly for where the hero Sula, so never think that Allah will fail in his promise to his messengers. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and owner of retribution, it will be on the day, the earth will be replaced by another Earth completely transformed, and the heavens as well and all creatures will come out before Allah, Allah his or her,

02:04:05--> 02:04:53

the one the prevailing, so no one will be able to hide their hide themselves from Allah. And you will see the criminals that day bound together in shackles, all those arrogant people now coming before Allah bound in shackles, their garments of liquid pitch which is highly flammable, and their faces covered by the fire, the federal law This is how they will be punished. Why, so that Allah will recompense every soul for what it earned? Can you what people are doing here? There's got to be a sequel a next chapter. Indeed, Allah is swift in account. Heather Bella holiness, this karate is notification for the people. This message is for all people put honest for all, every single human

02:04:53--> 02:04:59

And we also encourage our families, our friends to learn the message of the Quran, because every single person deserves to know every single person needs to know. So acquire take this head for yourself and also share it with others.
