Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

are the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish Swahili. Sorry were Sidley Emery. wahala rock Delta melissani Yakubu Kohli along with Matthew Colby was a deadly sin he was also Hema Colby mean aerobill amin,

00:00:37--> 00:01:31

Al Bara even as a little deal on Warren who reported from the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, that the deceased meaning a person who has just died, when they're buried, then they hear the beat of the sandals of people as they return from the grave. And at that moment, the angels arrive and ask him certain questions. The first question is also in soul, who is your Lord? And then what is your religion? And then who is your prophet? So when they ask him, Who is your Lord? He replies, my Lord is Allah. When they asked him, What is your religion? He replies, my religion is Islam. When they asked him, What is your opinion about the man who was sent among you? He replies, he is the

00:01:31--> 00:02:22

Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the angels asked him, Who told you all of this, so he replies, I read the book of Allah, and I believed in it, and I considered it to be true. So we see the benefit of studying the book of Allah, that it gives us not only certain knowledge, it gives us not only belief, but it also gives us confidence. Through this book, a person will be helped in the grave. During this questioning. We also learn that in the grave, a person will actually be protected from the punishment because of the recitation of the Quran. A Buddha will do a lot more on who reported that when a man is placed in his grave, and he's approached by punishment from the side

00:02:22--> 00:03:13

of his head, than his recitation of the Quran repels it, and when he is approached from his sides, then his charity repels it. And when he is approached from the side of his feet, then his walking to the masjid repels it. So we see that the recitation of the Quran is a means of protection in the grave from punishment. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to increase in our recitation, to increase in our understanding and in our knowledge, so that the Quran is a means of guidance for us in this life, and a source of protection and safety for us in the next life also, mean just number 15 sumoto Islam Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim In the Name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially

00:03:13--> 00:04:11

Merciful Subhana, Lennie isabey Abba de la la min and masjidul halloumi, Elon Musk gtil, Apple saw Elon Musk, judul Apple seletti Barack now Hello Who linaria whom in a Latina, in who who was semi early bus lead. Exalted is He who took his servant by night, from a muster that held on to administer the Aqsa whose surroundings we have blessed to show him of our signs. Indeed, he is the hearing the seeing the sola, sola to Islam. It begins with the speed that all glory is for Allah, that Allah is perfect. Meaning Yes, there is a truly astonishing news that is just about to be given here. But the fact is, that what people find shocking is in fact not difficult for Allah at all,

00:04:11--> 00:04:59

because he is above any weakness whatsoever. And what is being mentioned here is truly glorious. So yes, Subhana Allah. And what is that astonishing news? It is the fact that Allah subhanaw taala took his servant Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our Buddha who was Sulu he took him by night from a mosquito how long to a mosquito XL and back and what is a must you the Aqsa? What kind of a place is it? It is a lady Baraka hola who surroundings we have blessed. So what do you think about the masjid itself? It is indeed blessed not only physically where the land is fertile, but it has also been the birthplace and home

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

have many profits. So for a long time, and must do oxide, its surrounding area has been the place that has supported people's physical and spiritual sustenance. And what was the purpose of this journey? Leanne udia who Minaya Tina, to show him of our signs. So over here indication is to the journey of an Islamic and Amir Lodge, the night journey and the ascension. That was not only a gift for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but also a miracle. Remember that the slot is the journey from Mecca to Jerusalem. And mirror Lodge is the journey from Jerusalem to the heavens above it is the ascension. And remember that this journey was not a dream. It was a reality. So it

00:05:52--> 00:06:41

occurred in body and soul. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taken from Makkah to Jerusalem on the buraq which, contrary to what many like to believe, was not actually a winged horse. It was a creature that is described as white and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a mule, who would place its hoof a distance equal to the range of vision because we have local mela tarla Moon, Allah has created creatures that you don't even know off. So here in Jerusalem the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a muscular Aqsa, he led the rest of the prophets in prayer, which symbolized his leadership of all mankind, as he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and I say you do

00:06:41--> 00:07:25

with the Adam one alpha, that I am the leader of the children of Adam and there is no pride in that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taken to one must either x or y in order to perform Sunnah over there. Therefore, it is a Sunnah Remember to travel to unless you the Aqsa in order to pray there. And we as the oma of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should strive to visit this bless this blessed place and worship Allah subhanaw taala over there, because it is one of the most sacred places on earth, and the reward for prayer over there is multiplied. After this, we learned that gibreel took the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by hand and ascended into the heavens

00:07:25--> 00:08:10

above. Now remember, these are matters of the unseen to which we cannot apply the laws of physics as we know. So time and speed and distance. All of these matters are irrelevant over here. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taken up to the seventh heaven, to a level where no human has been even gibreel did not get to go beyond a certain point. And Allah azza wa jal spoke with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and at that time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given three gifts. One of them was the five daily prayers. The second was the concluding verses of surah three bacala and thirdly, forgiveness for those in his oma, who do not associate partners with

00:08:11--> 00:08:56

Allah. Now, in this journey, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was shown yet the signs of Allah subhanaw taala. So we learned that he was shown paradise and help, he was shown held coauthor and he was also shown the result of certain actions, both punishments and rewards. So we learned that he was shown the fate of those who backbite those who trampled people's honor, and such people were scratching their chests and faces with their copper nails. We learned that he was shown the fate of those who preach good things but don't practice themselves. their lips were being cut by scissors by scissors of fire, and he was shown the nations of different prophets. We learned that he

00:08:56--> 00:09:49

met many prophets and angels who gave messages and advice for the oma. So we learned that the angels, they said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that advise your oma to do hijama cupping, because it is good for health and a source of seeking treatment. Ibrahim alayhis salam, he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that say my salaams to your oma and tell them that Jenna has good fertile soil and sweet water, and it is plain and leveled land, and its plantations are sapan de la Alhamdulillah, La Ilaha in the LA and Allahu Akbar. So Subhana Allah, amazing, this is truly amazing. And Glory be to Allah, for this journey was a gift and a miracle, a source of much

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

benefit. We're at a normal cell keytab and we gave Musa alayhis salam the Scripture and made it a guidance for the children of Islam. He

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

That you that you not take other than me as Disposer of affairs and let that definitely do mean dooney work ILA, this was the message the essence of the Scripture that was given to Masada, his Salaam that the bunny is like you should know that they should not take anyone other than Allah as what key. Now remember that what keel is someone that you entrust your affairs to? So that they fulfill your needs, but only Allah is the one who is able to fulfill your needs. This is why and let that the human do any work ILA depends depend only on Allah subhanaw taala, or descendants of those we carried in the ship with no other his setup, meaning you are children of believers. Indeed, he

00:10:49--> 00:11:43

was a burden shockula he was a very grateful servant. We learnt earlier that Ibrahim or his son was described as shacket someone who is grateful for the favors that Allah gave him. And here Nohara his setup is described as Shaku and remember that Shaku is someone who is very, very grateful. And if we look at the life of new holidays, Sam, and he his life was a long life of extreme hardship, and continuous patience. He was patient, he remained hopeful, and he endured great hardship, he worked very, very hard. So remember, this is all part of sugar. Because gratitude is not just an emotion, it is meant to be expressed, it is meant to be exercised, and new highly his center was Shaku

00:11:44--> 00:12:36

meaning he was grateful in every situation. So just as he was grateful, you two should be grateful for you are his descendants. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also exhibited this level of gratitude that when he would pray in the night to a point that his feet would swell up, and he was asked that why do you pray so much when your sins have been forgiven? He said, FNS akun flr akun rather than shockula? Shall I not be a grateful servant? I've done Shaku so not shakin but Shaku. So remember, ishaku person works very hard, exerts effort in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Because he sees his inability to be sufficiently thankful. So he does his utmost in thanking

00:12:36--> 00:13:21

his Lord, and in performing worship, and almost a penalty Allah loves should we learn in a hadith that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with his servant who says Alhamdulillah while taking a bite of food, and while drinking a sip of water, meaning with every sip, and with every bite, when you say Alhamdulillah This is something that Allah subhanaw taala loves. So when you say Alhamdulillah, with every bite, you are expressing a lot of sugar. So Allah subhanaw taala loves that. And we conveyed to the children of Israel, he in the Scripture, that you will surely cause corruption on the earth twice, and you will surely reach a degree of great haughtiness or Lu one Kabila. So when the time of

00:13:21--> 00:14:12

promise, so when the time of promise came for the first of them, we sent against you servants of ours, those of great military might, meaning your enemy was way stronger than you. When you rebelled and killed the prophets, then a people more rebellious than you were imposed on you. And they probed even into the homes, meaning this spread everywhere in your lands, and fully assaulted you. And it was a promise fulfilled, then we gave back to you a return victory over them. And we and we reinforced you with wealth and sons and made you more numerous in manpower. So when you fixed yourselves that we fixed your condition as well, what is the lesson, the lesson is in a central

00:14:12--> 00:14:59

accent only unfussy calm, what in aceptan follow her that if you do good, then you do good for yourselves. And if you do evil, you do it to yourselves. And this rule is for all then when the final promise came, we sent your enemies to set in your faces, and to enter the temple in Jerusalem as they entered it the first time and destroyed it and to destroy what they had taken over with total destruction. So we see here that the bunny is slightly ill were warned very clearly, even before they enter Jerusalem, that if they committed corruption in the land, they would be evicted from it. And this is mentioned in the Bible also, in the book of Deuteronomy. It is said that

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

Messiah is

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

I've said to them, that after you have had children and grandchildren, and have lived in the land a long time, if you then become corrupt, and make any kind of idle, doing evil in the eyes of the Lord your God, and arousing his anger, I call heaven and earth as witnesses against to this day that you will quickly perish from the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess, you will not live long upon it, but will be utterly destroyed. And so it happened, we learned that the bunny is slightly were evicted from their homes at multiple occasions. The first time was in 516 BC, when Nebuchadnezzar attacked and destroyed the First Temple and sent them into exile. And the second time

00:15:44--> 00:16:33

was in 70 ad, when Titus destroyed the Second Temple, and literally scattered the money, so he dispersing them from their homeland. And this is something that didn't stop at that time. This is something that kept repeating. So we learn that any when a person when a nation when a community is good, then Allah subhanaw taala also blesses them. But when they become oppressive, then they're also treated with oppression. So this is a basic rule that in a sentence, I sent only unphysical what is acceptable, follow her. So the lesson is that we should live our lives with the fear of God. And we should realize that there are consequences to what we do, even in this world, ourselves, a

00:16:33--> 00:17:22

book home and your hammer comb. It is expected that your Lord will have mercy upon you and allow you to return meaning every time that you do good than Allah subhanaw taala will change your situation. But if you return meaning to sin, to oppression, then we will also return meaning with punishment. And we have made hell for the disbelievers a prison bed. So there's a huge lesson in this, that whether it is an individual, a family, it community, in nation, no one should feel secure from the punishment of Allah. Then it is said, in the hands of Anna Yadier, Letty, here a poem, indeed, this call on guides to that which is most suitable, and gives good tidings to the believers who do

00:17:22--> 00:18:13

righteous deeds, that they will have a great reward. We see that the Quran guides to that which is a poem that which is most correct, most suitable, meaning the best way of life, we see that in life, there are many times that we find ourselves, you know, making decisions, we don't know whether to go this way or that way. And there are so many, you know, difficulties and trials that we experience. So the Koran guides a person to the best options. So, a person cannot be on the straight path, a person cannot be doing what is right, until and unless they take guidance from the book of Allah. Because the Quran guides to that which is a cool, so curbelo de la hora and who he said hold fast to

00:18:13--> 00:19:05

the Quran. Because it is sharpness of the intellect, meaning it keeps the intellect sharp, and it is the light of wisdom. And it is a source of knowledge. It is the most recent book revealed by the Most Merciful and Allah revealed in the Torah, that oh Mohammed, I will reveal upon you a new total that will open blind eyes, deaf ears and heedless hearts. This is why hold on to the Quran. And the fact is that the person who's tribes even a little bit to understand the Quran, then definitely their life will be transformed. And the Quran gives good news to those people who believe and who do good deeds, good news that they will have a great reward. So we see that the Koran gives hope to us,

00:19:05--> 00:19:53

it saves us from despair, and that those who do not believe in the Hereafter, we have prepared for them a painful punishment, meaning the Quran also gives warning, way under insan will be shadley Dora who will hide what can an insane or a jeweler and man supplicates for evil as he supplicates for good, and men is ever hasty in our best old EULA Warren who said that this is when a person prays against himself or his children out of anger and frustration. While he does not actually want that prayer to be answered, meaning he doesn't actually mean it. But because of his impatience, and remember that impatience hastiness, this is from shaitan. Because of that, out of anger and

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

frustration, a person begins to pray against himself, that for example, a person is variable

00:20:00--> 00:20:48

Sick. So they start praying for death that a person is, for example, failing at something than they asked for, or the or they start praying for failure in every aspect of their lives, that a child has disappointed them. And they start making grace against that child that Oh Allah, I don't want these children anymore. Honey, this is impatience. And this is from shaitan. So those people who pray in anger against themselves or against their wealth or against their children, such people are being reprimanded, that they should be praying for ease in a time like this. Because remember, the person who is the person who is who is afflicted with difficulty, honey, that is the time to call upon

00:20:48--> 00:21:34

Allah soprano Tada, because Allah responds to the door of the person who is afflicted with difficulty. So this is not the time to be praying against yourself. We don't in a Hadith, do not invoke curse on yourselves, and do not invoke curse on your children, and do not invoke curse on your servants. And do not invoke a curse on your property. Lest you happen to do it at a time when Allah is asked for something and grants your request, meaning what if at that moment, your Dharma is accepted. And remember that if you pray against someone, and they're not worthy of it, then guess what that there are, will be turned against you, it will be turned against the person who has made

00:21:34--> 00:22:13

that thorough, so be very, very careful, careful. And always pray for good when it comes to your children. Because remember that there are three laws, which are certainly accepted. It is the draw of the oppressed, the door of the traveler, and the draw of the father for his children. So a father especially should only make the law for what is good, no matter how angry and upset he is. And be careful about what you ask. Because we learn that do not pray for anything except for good for yourselves, because the angels say mean over what you say.

00:22:14--> 00:23:03

So you don't want that while you're making draw against yourself. The angel says amen to that. And we have made the night and day two signs. And we erased the sign of the night and made the sign of the day visible, the night is dark, the day is bright, that you may seek bounty from your Lord, and may know the number of years and the account of time and everything we have set out in detail. So we see that different times are for different purposes. There is contrast in life, things change situations change, and there is a purpose behind that. So don't be impatient, but rather be patient and be grateful, what color insan in and for every person, we have imposed his fate upon his neck,

00:23:03--> 00:23:55

and we will produce for him on the Day of Resurrection a record which he will encounter spread open, meaning the deeds that a person commits, then remember their outcome is tied to the person meaning their outcome is in escapable. And on the Day of Judgment, a person's record of deeds will be spread open before them, meaning it will be displayed right in front of them. So nothing will remain hidden. And it will be said if caught up. keytab Uk read your record got Fabi enough Sega leiomyoma alayka has Siva sufficient is yourself against you this day as accountant meaning you can see for yourself what you deserve. And remember, a person's own limbs will testify against him your own

00:23:55--> 00:24:31

knifes meaning your own body is enough to come as a witness against you. And you can see based on your record, you can see for yourself what you deserve. So it is so important that we do this Maha Sabha, you know, this analysis, this interest, this introspection, in this life, that we should really be honest with ourselves, we should honestly hold ourselves accountable, we should be self aware, we should not be oblivious to our own actions, our own behaviors, our own words that we don't pay attention to them.

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

Whoever is guided, meaning whoever follows guidance. So and this is only possible when a person reflects on their condition and realizes what they need to improve. And then when they find out, they learn then they act upon that guidance. So whoever is guided is only guided for the benefit of his soul in a sentence or sentence the unfussy calm and whoever airs only airs against it, meaning no one else will

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

suffer in his place, and no bear of burdens will bear the burden of another meaning a person cannot put the blame on anybody else. And never would we punish until we sent a messenger. And when we intend to destroy a city, we command its effluent. But they defiantly disobey they're in. So the word comes into effect upon it, and we destroy it with complete destruction.

00:25:28--> 00:25:33

And how many? And how many have we destroyed from the generations afternoon?

00:25:34--> 00:26:21

And sufficient is your Lord concerning the sins of his servants as Acquainted and Seeing and we see that with the bunny is slightly also and the other nations of the past, we see that every time a nation defiantly disobeyed, their time eventually came to an end. So a person should not take their time and their freedom for granted that I can do whatever we want. I can say whatever I want. No, there is a consequence to what we do. There's a consequence to what we say to what we write, and we must take our actions very seriously. Whoever should desire the immediate meaning this life, that they want the reward in this life in this world, that we hasten for him from it, what we will to

00:26:21--> 00:27:17

whom we intend, then we have made for him hell, which he will enter to burn, censured and banished woman out of the theater was wasana has Surya her. Well, who am I mean on foot hula iica can you homeschool Ah, but whoever desires the Hereafter, their goal is not this world. But their goal is Jana. That Yeah, Allah, I want the home of the Hereafter, I want your approval, I want you to be pleased with me. So whoever desires the Hereafter, that is the goal and exerts the effort due to it, meaning it's not just a wish, but they also exert the right effort, while he is a believer, because remember, a good intention and good effort alone are not enough to save a person Eman is also

00:27:17--> 00:28:07

necessary, then it is those whose effort is ever appreciated by Allah. So two types of people are mentioned over here. There are those who seek this world. There are those people who seek immediate gratification for the effort that they're exerting, which is why when they don't immediately see any good result of their good actions, they become very upset, they become disappointed and they quit. And then there are others who seek the hereafter. So even if they don't see any immediate benefit, or any immediate result of what they're doing, then they still keep striving because Barbuda, Rebecca hedaya, Tia kalliopi you're supposed to worship your Lord until the very end of your life

00:28:07--> 00:29:02

until death. So the one who intends for the Hereafter, but then that wish alone is not enough. They also exert the right effort, because wishing for the reward of the hereafter without putting in the necessary effort. Remember, it is merely that it is just a wish, it is basically being delusional. Because when you want something, it is not enough to wish for it. When you want something, you have to strive for it, you have to work for it. So there must be intention, and effort. And along with that we're who we know and when a man with faith for Allah, aka kana sorry, you homeschool, then Allah will appreciate their efforts. A lot will appreciate they're striving, colon knowmad to help

00:29:02--> 00:29:53

Allah He will help Allah ma aka Arabic to each category we extend to these and to those meaning to the dunya seekers. We give them the little bit of dounia and to the our fellow seekers, they will get whatever that they desire from the gift of your Lord, and never has the gift of your Lord been restricted, meaning Allah soprano tada has a lot to offer. So don't settle with this world only. Look how we have favored in provision, some of them over others. But the Hereafter is greater in degrees of difference and greater in distinction. meaning there's a huge difference between people. And we see this even in this life, that people who work harder who study harder, longer. They reach

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

levels that people who don't study or work hard can reach. So there is a difference that

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

We see in the world and there's a much bigger difference that will be in the hereafter. Because there is a person who wants to hereafter and the other only wants to dounia the one who aims for the,

00:30:13--> 00:31:03

for the Hereafter, their level will be way higher than those who seek the dunya. We learned that the hypocrites they seek worldly benefits that is their ultimate concern, and they will compromise on the hereafter in order to obtain worldly benefits. And we learned in the Quran that the hypocrites will be in the lowest level of hellfire. So can there be any comparison between someone who is in the lowest level of hell to someone who is in the higher levels of Paradise, there is no comparison when a healer to UK boroondara Jatin Bharata Lila and remember, even within paradise, there are many levels according to a hadith 100 levels in gender. And the difference between two levels of Paradise

00:31:03--> 00:31:19

is like the difference between the sky and the earth. Imagine there's a huge difference. So aim for those heights for the heights for the high levels of Jenna, and pray for unfitted dose genital filled those

00:31:20--> 00:32:08

and now we are given certain commands. So let us pay attention to the commands that we are given so that we can observe them in order to in order to seek the home of the hereafter. Let the Jain Mara la isla Han Aha, do not make as equal with Allah another day t. y. Fatah Kuru them at the moment ma Lula, and thereby become censured and forsaken. Meaning if you call upon someone other than Allah, then you will in fact be abandoned, you won't be helped neither By Allah, because she is the greatest injustice, and nor by those that you call upon, because they're unable to help you. So this is a lose lose situation. And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him. And two parents

00:32:08--> 00:32:59

good treatment. And when they're old, then whether one or both of them reach old age while with you say not to them so much as off, and do not repel them, but speak to them a noble word, a respectable word. So here, we see that old age is mentioned specifically. Because in old age, remember, as people, they become weak and fragile, they deserve even more compassion and care. And especially if they're your parents, but because a person is typically busy at that time when their parents have become elderly. Why are they busy, because they have their own work, they have their own children. And of course, the Times have changed, then a person needs a lot of patience and tolerance with

00:32:59--> 00:33:50

their elderly parents, not just tolerance, but his son, because we're bill Wiley, Danny, Santa, you don't just put up with them, but you must be extra nice to them. So that means fanatic. Allahumma ofin do not even say off to them off is an expression of frustration. And it's a very small word, which means that if off is not allowed, then anything other than that is not allowed either. So do not express annoyance in response to their repeated requests, for example. And this also means that you should not scold them, you should not be harsh with them, you should not belittle them, especially when you have differences with them. And of course, there are going to be differences

00:33:50--> 00:34:39

between you and your elderly parents because your priorities are completely different. Your Goals are different. your lifestyle may now be very different from what they're used to. Your needs are different, your concerns are different. So there will be clashes. But remember, at this age, you cannot expect your parents to change that is unrealistic. You must be compassionate and respectful and gentle with your parents. Remember, being able to care for elderly parents is actually a privilege and hurting them not not earning genda by serving them. This is a huge loss. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, disgrace, disgrace, disgrace, the people set for who? And he said

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

he who sees either of his parents during their their old age, or he sees both of them, but he does not enter agenda. Why does he not enter agenda because he failed them. He failed to serve them. He failed to treat them kindly. So remember, Bill and Whalley Dane being good to parents is the

00:35:00--> 00:35:46

Best deed according to one Hadees the best deed after Salah. And if you want to see what kind of a person you are, then you look at two things, your duty to Allah and your duty towards your parents. How is your Salah? Is it on time? Is it proper? Is it that you are attentive? Or is it that you are negligent with regards to your prayer, that it gets delayed every other day? And secondly, look at your relationship with your parents. It's not necessary that you get along with them. 100% that your buddy buddy with them? No. It's about how you treat them. How you speak to them. Are you respectful? Do you show compassion and care? Well filled lahoma Jana had liminal rahima and lower to them the

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

wing of humility out of mercy. Remember hufbauer Jana is to humble oneself to come down just as a bird descends, it lowers its wing, when it is landing when it is coming down. So be humble before your parents, don't try to show that you are better than them. You must lower yourself. Don't be like that bird that is flying high. No, lower your wing come down. And even if they're speaking what is completely illogical to you, or perhaps it is backward, perhaps it is their language, perhaps it is their accent. Perhaps it's the it's the fact that they don't understand the world as you do. Still, there is no need to insult your parents or to speak rudely to them. Or to show that you know

00:36:35--> 00:37:21

better than them, or that you are better than them. Rather be humble. And do not argue with them. Well filled lahoma Jenna has doodle demeanor. Because remember, your rudeness and your harshness is very, very painful for your parents. Because think about it. They raised you they showed you love when you were illogical. Have you ever seen a child and they're terrible twos, any some children, they're terrible twos. They continue for many years. So they so they're extremely loud, very illogical. They're, they're throwing tantrums all the time. But your parents showed you love they cared about you. So remember who you were. And sometimes Yes, it is difficult to be patient and

00:37:21--> 00:38:10

respectful. You wonder what is happening to my parents, any they used to be so strong emotionally and they were so logical they were so understanding they were your source of support, they were so sensible. So it's very hard to see them becoming weak. So in that case, seek the help of Allah, that he should give them what you are not able to give them. Welcome Rob, Bill haemangioma, come out of biani Sal de la. So make the offer them. On the one hand, show humility, and be respectful. And on the other hand, make the offer them that my lord have mercy upon them as they brought me up when I was small, meaning they took care of me when I was little, and now they need care. And I can never

00:38:10--> 00:38:59

care for them as they cared for me. So your job you compensate, where I fall short, and I I am falling short in my duty towards my parents. But I've been hematoma, Oh Allah have mercy on them. And this includes good health. This includes their safety. This includes their patients, their dignity, and yeah Allah, you have mercy upon them. And remember that the mother deserves even more kind treatment than the father or a bukem RLM will be Murphy new fusi comb, your Lord is most knowing of what is within yourselves, meaning he knows what you go through as children. Allah knows the state of your heart. That why are you taking care of your parents? Is it to impress the world?

00:39:00--> 00:39:51

Or is it with resentment that when is it that I am going to become free? They looked after you, wishing for you good health and life. And many people look after their elderly parents wishing for and waiting for their death. soprano law, what a huge difference a lot. bukom are l'amour B Murphy new foresee calm. Allah knows what is within yourselves. He knows your intention. So this is a warning. And this is also a constellation because sometimes what happens is that a person tries their best to take care of their parents. They try so hard, but some parents any given their old age, given their illness or given their condition. They are never happy with what their children do.

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

In fact, they can actually be very abusive, or they begin to emotionally blackmail their own children that if you don't do this

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

And I will pray against you. And if your father is not pleased with you, if your mother is not pleased with you, then you have done no good. I am your mother, I have your right. So sometimes it happens that no matter what a child does, the parents are just not happy. So then what do you do on our buco our alarm will be Murphy no fullcycle Allah knows what is it that is in your hearts that you are trying to do your best you do want the best, however, in Turku, solly hain for in the whole candidate aware being of a folder, if you should be righteous in intention, then indeed he is ever to the often returning to him forgiving. Meaning Allah subhanaw taala will pardon you. So yes, there

00:40:45--> 00:41:27

are times when the most loving and caring children also slip, they end up hurting their parents, they end up falling short in their duty towards them. So then what to do at this time, turn back to Allah asked him for forgiveness. So Allah is to a webbing to those who turn back to him repeatedly, he is awful towards them forgiving. This is why we should make dua to Allah, that he Allah, you forgive me, you pardon me, with respect to my negligence when it comes to my parents that I don't, I don't respect them the way they deserve that respect. There are times when I fall short in my duty to my parents, so yeah, Allah, you forgive me.

00:41:28--> 00:42:15

So the state of your heart sometimes Yes, it changes. Sometimes even your feelings fluctuate, but your behavior is what you have to watch. Your attitude towards your parents should always be respectful, and where you do slip, then you seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. And give the relative his right, and also the poor and the traveler and do not spend wastefully What are two benefit to the euro. And you see to the this is to scatter seeds around. So don't scatter your money throwing it around. Why? Because Indeed, the wasteful are brothers of the devil's and ever has shaped lawn been to his Lord, ungrateful. So don't scatter your money in bits and pieces here and

00:42:15--> 00:43:05

there, like seeds are scattered, because then you'll run out. You see, the lead being wasteful, this is to spend more than what is necessary. It is to spend on things that are unnecessary. It is basically to waste one's money. How, by spending it on useless things on by spending it on every wish and every desire or on things which are wrong. Even Massoud explained, these are alladhina Yun mucuna few lady help, there are those people who spend money in wrong places where a person should not spend money. So to lead is something that we have to be careful about. And unfortunately, in this day and age where you know, no matter what you have is never enough, no matter what you have is

00:43:05--> 00:43:48

never new enough. So there's a lot of temptation. And we must be careful, because this is like a trap. Once you get caught up in it, then your money it keeps going away from you. And at the end, you're left with hardly anything. And so you're not able to spend it on good causes, then you're not able to spend it on those who need, you're not able to spend it in a way that will benefit you in the hereafter. In hobbies, we learned that there will be people from my alma, who will eat foods have various colors and types and will drink beverages of various colors and types, meaning a lot of variety, and they're only concerned about fulfilling their desires. And they will wear clothing of

00:43:48--> 00:44:35

various colors and types. They will be careless in speech and will ride on mounds of various colors and types. And these are the worst people of my own. Why? Because their ultimate concern is to look good to eat good to drink good candy, their only concern is to spend on their desires. So remember, we will be asked not just about how we earned our money, but also how we spent it and remember wasting money is something that Allah subhanaw taala dislikes. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah dislikes three things for you pain will call and a little man wasting money working through it so so wasting money, Allah, Allah does not like that. And if you must turn away

00:44:35--> 00:45:00

from the needy, awaiting mercy from your Lord, which you expect, then speak to them a gentle word, meaning sometimes people demand from you that you spend on them that you give them that you lend them, but you're not always in a position to do that. So even if you must refuse, refuse or excuse yourself gently and do not make your hand as chained to your neck or extended completely.

00:45:00--> 00:45:42

And thereby become blamed and insolvent. Meaning don't go to the other extreme and become stingy. Indeed, your Lord extends provision for whom He wills and restricts it. Indeed, he is ever concerning His servants Acquainted and Seeing, he knows what you're doing, and do not kill your children for fear of poverty, because we provide for them and for you, indeed, they're killing is ever a great sin. So we see the rights of children are mentioned over here, their right to live, and Allah subhanaw taala is more merciful to people than their parents are to them. People think that they should kill their children at times, when they when their children are a financial burden on

00:45:42--> 00:46:28

them. We learn in a Hadees that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked about the greatest sins, he mentioned, to kill your son, lest he should share your food with you. Meaning a person becomes so stingy so selfish, that he doesn't want to have a child who will share his food with him. In Nakata home can a hippo and Kabira they're killing is ever a great sin. So remember, once the fetus has life in it, then killing it, aborting it, that is also a murder, and do not approach unlawful sexual intercourse. Indeed, it is ever an immorality, and is evil as a way, don't even go near Xena and do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden except by right. And whoever is

00:46:28--> 00:47:11

killed unjustly, we have given his air authority, but let him not exceed limits in the matter of taking life. Indeed, he has been supported by the law and do not approach the property of an orphan except in the way that is best until he reaches maturity and fulfill every commitment will or will be, indeed the commitment is ever that about which one will be questioned. So be very careful when you give your word to someone when you commit to something. First of all, don't go on making promises over every little thing. And then when you do make a promise, then fulfill it. And if you're not able to fulfill it, then let the other person know in advance and apologize and find out

00:47:11--> 00:47:13

how you can make up for it.

00:47:14--> 00:48:02

What Oh, full Kayla either killed him and give full measure when you measure and weigh with an even balance that is the best way and best in result when after performing a silica be hearing and do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge because in the summer well basalt, oh well fu other kulula econda and houmous oola indeed the hearing the site and the heart about all those one will be questioned. So, we see here that a person should not pursue that of which they have no knowledge meaning a person should not confuse assumption with fact, meaning don't say something unless you are fully certain and do not base your actions or life on assumption based on fact and remember

00:48:02--> 00:48:50

revelation is fact. So in this ayah there is basically intellectual reform, you see there are levels of awareness, one is that you assume something, the other is that you know something based on certain knowledge and facts. So, when you speak, when you take action, when you do something, make sure it is based on factual knowledge and not mere assumption. And this includes not passing on every single thing that we have heard without confirmation. And we should not assume things about other people all the time either because we have been told to refrain from assumption because some assumption can actually be sinful. But that aside, do not say I have seen when you did not in fact

00:48:50--> 00:49:35

see or I heard when you did not actually hear or I know when you do not actually know because Allah will ask you about all of this. All of these faculties we will be questioned about them. Did you use them or not? And how did you use them? So we should use them in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala and do not walk upon the earth exultantly. Indeed, you will never tear the earth apart and you will never reach the mountains in height. Remember, it is a sign of Allah's righteous servants that they walk with humility, am schoon are the only homeowner and remember when there's humility inside, then there is contentment and there is a healthy confidence which is reflected in a person's manner of

00:49:35--> 00:49:59

walking as well. that a person does not walk leisurely, nor do they overspeed when there's calmness and composure inside it is reflected in a person's manner of walking also, and remember, walking arrogantly is something that brings about Allah's wrath. We learned that whoever if that if he mushiya t if that if he Misha t whoever is

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

arrogant in the manner of his walking, he will meet a lot while Allah will be held the band with him very angry with him. All that it's evil is ever in the sight of your Lord detested, so leave such things. That is from what your Lord has revealed to you of wisdom and do not make as equal with Allah another day at lest you be thrown into hell, blamed and banished again. We are warned against chick, then has your Lord chosen for you for having, then has your Lord chosen you for having sons and taken from among the angels daughters. Indeed, you say a grave saying, and we have certainly diversified the contents in this court on that mankind may be reminded, but it does not increase the

00:50:47--> 00:51:38

disbelievers except in a version say, if there had been with him other gods, as they say, then they each would have sought to the Owner of the Throne a way meaning there would be a lot of competition then Subhana who Exalted is He? and high above what they say by great sublimity to sub beholder who's similar to several well outdo woman fee when the seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them, exalt Him, and there is not a thing, except that it exalts Allah by his praise, but you do not understand their way of exalting indeed he is ever forbearing and forgiving. Imagine everything whether it is animate or inanimate, everything is glorifying Allah subhanaw taala. We learn in the

00:51:38--> 00:52:05

Hadees that even an ant colony is an oma, meaning umami to sub be who it is a community from among different communities that glorifies and praises Allah soprano Tada. Remember, this B is the best speech that you can make, it's the best words that you can utter. It is words that are beloved to Allah subhanaw taala that are chosen for his servants Subhan Allah Subhana Allah He will be handy what he does.

00:52:07--> 00:52:51

And when you recite the Quran, we put between you and those who do not believe in the hereafter a concealed partition, and we have placed over their hearts coverings lest they understand it, and in their ears is deafness. And when you mentioned your Lord alone in the Quran, meaning one, they turn back in aversion. So there are people who do not like the message of the Quran, they do not like its contents, and they do not understand the wisdom of the Quran. And they especially dislike it when La ilaha illAllah is mentioned, one lower either at the baddie in New fula. Osama bin Abdullah said that saying La ilaha illa Allah chases shaytaan away, and then he recited this ayah we are most

00:52:51--> 00:53:37

knowing of how they listened to it when they listen to you and of when they are in private conversation when the wrongdoer say you follow not but a man affected by magic. So they stop from believing themselves, and they also dissuade others from coming to you and believing. Look how they strike for you comparisons. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was far from being affected by magic, but they have strayed. So they cannot find a way and they say, when we are bones and crumbled particles, will we truly be resurrected as a new creation? Say be used stones or iron, meaning even if centuries go by, and your bodies have decomposed, and they have turned into the matter has turned

00:53:37--> 00:54:26

into stones or iron, or any creation of that which is great within your chests. Remember, resurrection is real, Allah will still resurrect you, no matter what your body turns into. And they will say, who will restore us who is capable of doing that? Say, he who brought you for the first time, Allah, then they will nod their heads toward you and say when is that say perhaps it will be soon on the day he will call you and you will respond with praise of him and think that you had not remained in the world except for a little while. killary birdie yaku Lottie here and tell them and tell my servants to say that which is best, indeed shavon induces dissension among them, indeed,

00:54:26--> 00:55:00

shaitan is ever to mankind a clear enemy. So we see here that if we truly want to be a lousy bad, Allah's good righteous servants, then we have to watch what comes out of our mouths. We are not machines. I mean, we are human, we get upset, we get hurt, we get annoyed, but we still have control over what we say. And if we speak carelessly, then remember shaitan becomes successful in damaging our relationships. So good speech now.

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

Not only saves the person from potential problems, it is in fact, something that brings about a loss forgiveness as well in our heads we learn that good speech, you double agenda, it brings about the result of gender meaning it definitely a person will enter agenda because of that little bukem RLM will become your Lord is most knowing of you, because sometimes we go on, you know, explaining ourselves, I said this because of such and such reason, you know, we go and justifying ourselves, Allah is most knowing of you, if he wills, He will have mercy upon you. Or if he wills, He will punish you, and we have not sent to you over them as a manager. And your Lord is most knowing of

00:55:41--> 00:56:25

whoever is in the heavens and the earth. And we have made some of the profits exceed others in various ways. And to the world, we gave the book, meaning zooboo say, invoke those you have claimed as Gods besides Him, for they do not possess the ability of removal of adversity from you. They're not capable of removing any hardship from you, or for its transfer to someone else. They can't do that. Those whom they invoke, who are they in reality, they actually call upon love themselves, any they are in need of a law. So it is said, they seek means of access to their Lord, striving as to which of them would be nearest, and they hope for his mercy and fear his punishment, indeed, the

00:56:25--> 00:57:10

punishment of your Lord is ever feared. Meaning it is definitely something worth fearing. We see that among the Arabs, there were people who would worship the jinn. And we learned that eventually, any those jinn who are worshipped by these people, those jinn became Muslim. And so they were very afraid that any, there are people who worship us. And these Jin would themselves seek the reward from Allah subhanaw taala and his mercy. So the people who continue to worship them are being reprimanded, that you are calling upon a creation, who itself is in need of Allah, Who itself is trying to please Allah subhanaw taala and is afraid of the punishment of Allah. So what are you

00:57:10--> 00:57:53

doing? What Eman polyethylene and there is no city, but that we will destroy it before the Day of Resurrection, or punish it with the severe punishment that has ever been in the register inscribed, and nothing has prevented us from sending signs except that the former people denied them. And we gave the mood the she camel as a visible sign, but they wronged her, and we send out the signs except as a warning. And remember when we told you indeed your Lord has encompassed to the people, so there's no need to fear them. And we did not make the site meaning the journey of Islam, which we showed you except as a trial for the people, as was the cursed tree that is mentioned in the Quran,

00:57:53--> 00:58:34

meaning there's a coup. Because when when the machine when they found out when they heard about these matters, they made fun of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that How could you have gone in one night? And there are people who will make fun of Islam and marriage even today? And they will find things in the Quran, which they find strange and they start making fun of it. So yes, this is a fitna, this is a trial for them, and we threatened them, but it increases them not except in great transgression, whether you have a Billa you see this information which is given in the Koran, whatever it is, this is to encourage us to worship Allah subhanaw taala better when Allah subhanaw

00:58:34--> 00:59:12

taala informs us of certain things, any This is to for to threaten us to stop us from our wrongdoing. But then there are people who don't benefit from that warning at all. And mentioned when we set to the angels Prostrate to Adam, and they prostrated except for a police. He said Should I prostrate to one you created from clay? Look at his arrogance, it bleeds said do you see this one whom you have honored above me? Look at his arrogance. He said any Adam made of clay you've honored him above me is even worthy of that. You see it please criticize Allah's decision.

00:59:13--> 00:59:59

Why? Because it believes in he thought he understood better. He knew better. And a lot of people make this mistake. They think they know better than Allah subhanaw taala. So they pass judgment. they criticize the Quran. they criticize what Allah subhanaw taala decrees. He said if you delay me until the Day of Resurrection, I will surely destroy his descendants except for a few. You see, Iblees is not just our enemy. He is also the enemy of our children, because he said that he can do reata who I will destroy his descendants, his children except for a few and look at this word. Then he can. Tanaka. This is when locusts eat whatever is on a certain piece of land.

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

Meaning that they have full mastery over it

01:00:04--> 01:00:58

with their mounts, because a hunk of hanoch is the mouth. So when an animal pulls out a plant from its root with its mouth, and he completely uprooting it, completely destroying it, this is a Teaneck. So I will completely annihilate, I will destroy his children, his descendants, and at NACA is also to have full control over an animal. So, for example, a horse when the mouse is, you know, strapped with, you know, when the rope is passed through the mouth, and the horse is in full control, this is also acting out, so, I will gain mastery over his children. So, I will lead them and I will command them and they will obey me. You see, a blease begins working on human beings and

01:00:58--> 01:01:42

harming them. From the moment a human being enters this world. Any as soon as the child is born? What does shaitan do? shaitan smacks the child so the child cries, in our best set, when someone is born shaytaan takes hold of him. And if Allah is mentioned, shaitan goes away. If Allah is not mentioned, he remains firm in his heart. This is why as soon as a child is born, any we should make it a point to make some bacon over there, recite ayatul kursi recite them or without and you know, recycle on over there to protect your child. Sometimes people will wait for you know the following day, or for like a couple of hours so that someone will come and make the event so that the shank

01:01:42--> 01:02:31

line will go in this has to happen as soon as a child is born. Don't wait. Call and have a lesson goal for whoever have them follows you. Indeed, hell will be the recompense of you and ample Recompense. What steps is minister tartar mean? Whom basaltic and incite to senselessness, whoever you can among them with your voice, and assault them with your horses and foot soldiers, and become a partner in their wealth and their children and promise them but champon does not promise them except delusion. So these are the ways of shaitan how he attacks and misleads mankind in their ebody Leyzaola Carla himself on indeed, over my unbelieving servants, there is for you know, authority,

01:02:31--> 01:03:19

meaning shaitan cannot harm them, because tripod cannot have control over them. And sufficient is your Lord as Disposer of affairs. So your biggest strength against shaitaan is your connection with Allah subhanaw taala. You are only safe with him. When you become of anybody. Allah has righteous servants. So don't do anything that will deprive you of Allah's love, and allow us protection. And when a mistake happens, then again turn back to a low. It is your Lord, who drives the ships for you through the sea, that you may seek of his bounty. Indeed, he is ever to you merciful. And when adversity touches you at sea, last are all those you invoke except for him, meaning then you start

01:03:19--> 01:04:03

calling upon one person after another one date he after another. And when you realize that nobody is coming to help you, there's no one that can come and rescue you. Then what do you do, then you call upon only Allah. But when he delivers you to the land, you turn away from him And ever is men, I'm grateful, then do you feel secure, that instead he will not cause a part of the land to swallow you? Any? Okay, fine, you're not on at sea anymore. You're on land, but you think Elon doesn't have power over land, or send against you a storm of stones, then you will not find for yourselves and advocate. So we see here that being able to travel in safety, being able to cross great distances,

01:04:03--> 01:04:55

whether it is oceans, or forests or deserts, any flying over them. This is a huge blessing. And, of course, when a person is in some difficulty, they call upon Allah subhanaw taala. But it is 50 we don't forget him at that time. Rather, we remember him or do you feel secure, that he will not send you back into the sea another time and send upon you a hurricane of wind and drown you for what you denied? Then you would not find for yourselves against us and Avenger. So how can we feel secure while sitting? And it's amazing how sometimes in an airplane any 1000s of feet above ground, people have the courage to watch sinful things to talk about sinful things. Any This is a place where

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

should where we should feel ever fearful of Allah subhanaw taala

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

And if Allah subhanaw, taala has taken out has taken us out of a difficulty, don't feel secure, because it's quite possible that very soon, you're in another difficulty. So who's going to save you then? And our ultimate return is to Allah. So let us not forget Allah. And We have certainly honored the children of Adam, and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things, and preferred them over much of what we have created with definite preference. So think the day we will call forth every people with their record of deeds, their leader, or we will call every people with their leader. So the question is, who is it that we want to be led by the one that we follow

01:05:48--> 01:06:36

today is going to lead us on the Day of Judgment, then whoever is given his Record in his right hand, those will be the records and injustice will not be done to them even as much as a thread on the date seed sopran Allah, you see a date, anyone, you open it on the seed, you can see a tiny thread that is 14. So no injustice will be done on the Day of Judgment. And sometimes, we belittle small deeds, and we leave them, we think that they're unimportant. And it is possible that it is those very tiny deeds that will save us on the Day of Judgment. Sometimes, we allow ourselves to commit a little bit of transgression here and there. But what if it is that little transgression,

01:06:36--> 01:07:18

that becomes a means of our destruction? When are you will a Mona Fatima, every little bit will be measured and counted on the Day of Judgment. And whoever is blind in this life will be blind in the hereafter and more astray in way. So those people who choose to be blind to the truth in this life, will be blind and lost on the Day of Judgment, they will be despairing on the Day of Judgment. And indeed, they were about to tempt you away from that which we reveal to you in order to make you invent about something else. And then they would have taken you as a friend, meaning the machine of Makkah, they basically wanted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to change the religion just a

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

little bit. So that it would be according to their wishes. And then they offered their willingness to accept the religion. So Allah says, When Allah and subbotnik and if we had not strengthened you, you would have almost inclined to them a little. Then if you had inclined to them and compromised, then we would have made you taste double punishment in life and double after death, then you would not find for yourself against us a helper. So we see here that each and every person depends on Allah subhanaw taala, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, everyone depends on Allah for guidance. So always beg Allah for guidance for firmness on Islam, that we live with a man and die on

01:08:05--> 01:08:55

it as well. It will pay him said that a person is only firm on faith with the help of Allah. Any a slave can never be in it will claim said that the slave can never be independent of Allah, for even the blink of an eye. Because if Allah does not make him firm, then his Eman would disappear. The sky and the earth of his Eman meaning the the high and the low in all of it would cease to exist. This is why we should make their alma mater Metallica filata, kidney, Elon FC bonfirecherry that era, don't leave me to my nerves for even a moment I need you. And indeed, they were about to drive you from the lead to evict you there from and then any if they manage to do that, they will not remain

01:08:55--> 01:09:36

there after you except for a little. And this is something that a person should think about that if you manage to harm someone unjustly, you think you will remain safe forever. That is our established way for those we had said before you have our messengers, and you will not find in our way any alteration, establish prayer at the decline of the sun, meaning when the sun begins to decline from the meridian at that time, establish the prayer meaning look, and then after that is sort of until the darkness of the night meaning eventually negative and very sharp. And also the Quran of dawn we'll call an ill fated meeting establish prayer at the time of fudges so the five daily prayers are

01:09:36--> 01:09:59

mentioned in this ayah but notice Salatu funded is actually called quote an Al fudges the Quran of dawn. Why? Because the most indeed the most important aspect of budget slaughter. The most visible aspect of budget prayer is supposed to be the recitation of the Quran. So this means that in fudger prayer, we should recite

01:10:00--> 01:10:48

More than we recite in other prayers, the recitation should be longer. And it is said in the Quran and federally kanima shuda Indeed, the recitation of Dawn is ever witnessed, meaning it is attended by the angels, because that is the time when the angels change their shifts, meaning the new group of angels arrives so that they will watch you and record your deeds and the angels who had been with you previously. Then there is their time to leave. So they're going to give that report to Allah subhanaw taala that what is it that you were doing? So this is why we must pay special attention to reciting Quran at the time of fudges and if a person does not know much Quran, meaning they have not

01:10:48--> 01:11:31

memorized A lot of it, so they're not able to recite it in sada, then at least after Salah they should recite some Quran, because in an alpha God can Masuda and from part of the night, pray with it as additional worship for you for the hedger, the biggie Nafisa Tilak, it is expected that your Lord will resurrect you to a praised station makalah mahamudra. So remember, if the herget prayer, this was an obligation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but it is voluntary for the oma. And it is mentioned here that perform it, because then Allah will give you mahkamah Mahmoud, Allah will give you a praised station. Remember macom Muhammad is the station of honor that is reserved

01:11:31--> 01:12:15

for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment, where he will be permitted to speak so he will glorify and praise Allah mahkamah Mahmoud. The fact is that when a person prays in the night, the hijab prayer, then this is truly a source of honor and shut off for the believer. This is why we should take this very seriously especially in the month of Ramadan. Because if a person establishes the night prayer in the month of Ramadan, whether it is in the first part of the night, or in the middle of the night, or the end of the night, whether it is before this leap or or on waking up from sleep, any praying in the night in the month of Ramadan reciting Quran in that

01:12:15--> 01:13:00

this is something that will be a means of forgiveness for a person. So take this matter very seriously. Even if it is just a little bit that you can pray, but pray every day. We'll call up be adequately mahalo, say the pin, and say, My Lord, cause me to enter a sound entrance and to exit a sound exit, and grant me from yourself is supporting authority and say, truth has come and falsehood has departed, indeed, is also it by nature ever bound to depart. Remember, the journey of Islamic marriage was towards the end of the mecca era, right before the hegemon. And so we see indications of Hitler in the surah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was now going to leave Makkah and

01:13:00--> 01:13:36

go to Medina, a new place. So what is he told, say, My Lord, cause me to enter a sound entrance. Sometimes you're entering a new phase of your life, a new stage of your life, you're going to a new place. So make this thought that Oh Allah, allow me to enter in a good way and exit whenever it is time, Grant me to exit in a sound way that I don't leave that place, damaged and hurt. No, but you protect me and you take care of me and grant me from yourself is supporting authority, so you support me so I don't slip and nobody takes advantage of me.

01:13:38--> 01:14:25

And we sat down of the Quran, that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss. The Quran is meant to be Shiva, a healing a mercy, but for who only for those who believe. And those who learn and when they read the Koran when they listen to the Quran, what happens to them, it only increases them in loss sopran Allah, which I hit them Qatada they said that no one sits with the Quran except that he gets up with either increase or loss. This is Allah decreed that he has made the Quran a healing and mercy for the believers and it does not increase the wrongdoers accepted loss. So we have to really check ourselves that what is it

01:14:25--> 01:14:59

that I take from the Quran? My connection with the Quran my recitation of the Quran when I spend time with the Quran, is this a source of mercy for me? Or is it that I suffer even more? Is it increasing me in my suffering, if there is suffering, that that that I if it is suffering that I get, then I need to check myself? Because it has said well I use it a lot. It means a lot Hassan it is the lovely mean. It is those who do learn who increase in loss. So remember, a person will be deprived of

01:15:00--> 01:15:45

Blessing of the Quran in proportion to the loan that they are committing, in proportion to the injustice they are committing, whether it is a sin in their personal life, or it is that they're harming someone, or that they're not giving someone their rights, any this one will prevent a person from benefiting from the Quran. And we learned that there are three kinds of oppression three kinds of load. One type of loading is that which Allah will not leave meaning you will not overlook. And this is the oppression that is between servants so there will be justice on the Day of Judgment. Secondly, is the loan that Allah will pardon and that is what is between the servant and his Lord,

01:15:45--> 01:16:24

meaning the sins that a person commits. And thirdly is the loan that Allah will not forgive. And that is chick, associating partners with Allah. So those who do learn, they are deprived of the blessing of the Quran, and the Quran, we see it as Shiva and mercy for the believers which means that one should recite the Quran for Shiva and not seeking she fought through it not seeking healing through it as a way of abandoning the Quran. Remember, the Quran is a healing for the body and for the soul. It is healing for doubts for ignorance, deviation, ill intentions, desires, any the Koran makes you better it helps you

01:16:25--> 01:17:11

but for that a man is unnecessary. And when we bestow favor upon the disbeliever, he turns away and distances himself. And when evil touches him, he is ever despairing. Say, each works according to his manner, but your Lord is most knowing of who is best guided in way, way as aluna cardinal rule, and they ask you about the soul, say, the soul is of the affair of my Lord and mankind have not been given enough knowledge except a little meaning when it comes to the reality of the root the soul, it is something that you cannot understand fully. Why? Because to grasp certain concepts, you have to have a certain level of knowledge, and to understand the reality of the soul. There is a certain

01:17:11--> 01:17:57

knowledge that we need, which we don't have. So because we don't fulfill the prerequisite, we cannot understand its reality. Suffice to say, what we can comprehend is that it is from the command of my Lord, meaning it comes by Allah's command, so a person is alive, and it goes by Allah's command, so the person is dead. And if we will, we could surely do away. And if we will, we could surely do away with that which we reveal to you, that you would not find for yourself concerning it, and advocate against us, except as a mercy from your Lord sopran. Allah is called on and if Allah wanted, he would have not given this Quran to us if he wanted, he could have removed it from us. So if we have

01:17:57--> 01:18:38

it, this is Allah's mercy, indeed his favor upon you has ever been great, save mankind in the jinn gathered in order to produce the light of this Koran, they could not produce the light of it, even if they were to each other assistance. So if you leave the Quran, what are you going to take whatever you take is going to be less than the Quran. And We have certainly diversify for the people in this quadrant, from every kind of example, but most of the people refused anything except disbelief. And they say, we will not believe you until you break open for us from the ground a spring, or until you have a garden of palm trees and grapes and make rivers gush forth within them

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

in force and abundance. Or you make the heaven fall upon us in fragments, as you have claimed, or you bring Allah and the angels before us, or you have a house of gold, or you ascend into the sky. And even then we will not believe in your Ascension until you bring down to us a book that we may read. And these were some demands that the people of Morocco made. And if you think about it, they asked for a book that they could read when they were unlettered, they were illiterate themselves, soprano Allah, say, Exalted as my Lord, was I ever but a human messenger, meaning I never claimed I could show you all of this. So we see here that the people of Makkah made many demands, show us this

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

miracle, show us that miracle. But Allah subhanaw taala did not show them. So remember, you don't have to respond to every request that is made or every demand that is made of you. You don't have to refute every argument or answer every question or answer every comment. And you don't have to give in just because someone is insisting you don't have to comply. Because you see if these demands were accepted, then what would happen? There would have been even more demands because the people who wanted to believe any for them the Koran was sufficient miracle. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to teach to guide them

01:20:00--> 01:20:41

Not to show miracle after miracle. His teachings themselves were miracle. And the people have to accept the miracle in the Quran. And remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Bashar Al Rasulullah, the human messenger, he did not come to establish His glory that people are fascinated by by his being. You see some some Muslims any their concern is or their debates revolved around was the prophets of Allah who were to send them made of light or something else? And did he have a shadow or not? Any of these things are irrelevant, that we we get caught up in these distractions, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not sent to establish his own glory that all people

01:20:41--> 01:21:25

be impressed by me know, he was sent to deliver a message. So focus on that. And what prevented the people from believing when guidance came to them, except that they said has Allah sent a human messenger say, if there were upon the earth, angels walking securely, we would have sent down to them from the heaven and Angel as a messenger, say sufficient is Allah as witnessed between me and you? Indeed, he is ever concerning His servants Acquainted and Seeing and whoever Allah guides, he is the rightly guided, and whoever he sends a stray, you will never find for them protectors besides Him. And we will gather them on the Day of Resurrection fallen on their faces, blind, mute, and

01:21:25--> 01:22:12

deaf, their refuges hell, every time it subsides, we increase them in blazing fire stuff at a law you see, fire cools down after burning, but hell will never die, because the fuel of hell will not die. In general, blessings are ever increasing and in hell, punishment is ever increasing. But you see the description that is given over here, that they will be raised on the Day of Judgment, how on their faces, blind, mute and deaf. Why? Because they turned blind and deaf to the obvious truths, unless data had given them the ability to comprehend to see to recognize, to understand to pay attention. But even though they recognize the truth, they pretended as though they never heard it.

01:22:13--> 01:22:54

They acted as though they never saw it. So they will be made like that on the Day of Judgment. So they will not be able to see anything that is pleasant, and they will not be able to hear anything that is pleasant. So remember, the way we treat the Quran right now is how we will be treated on the Day of Judgment. That is their recompense because they disbelieved in our verses, this was their crime. And they said, when we are bones and crumbled particles, will we truly be resurrected in a new creation? Do they not see that Allah who created the heavens and the earth is the one able to create the likes of them, and he has appointed for them a term about which there is no doubt but the

01:22:54--> 01:23:39

wrongdoers refuse anything except disbelief. say to them, if you possessed the depositories of the mercy of my Lord, then you would withhold out of fear of spending and ever has men been stingy people are any they're very stingy. And We have certainly given Moosa nine evidence signs. So ask the children of Israel, about when he came to them, and fit our own set to them. Indeed, I think or Moosa, that you are affected by magic mazarin, Sam said, You have already known that none has sent down the signs except the Lord of the heavens, and the earth has evidence. And indeed, I think of it our own, that you are destroyed, because you are knowingly rejecting the truth. So he intended to

01:23:39--> 01:23:44

drive them from the land, but we drowned him, and those with him altogether.

01:23:45--> 01:24:28

And we said, and we said after federal into the children of his salon, l dwell in the land, and when there comes the promise of the Hereafter, we will bring you forth in one gathering, and with the truth we have sent the Quran down, and with the truth, it has descended, and we have not sent to you except as a bringer of good tidings and a warner and it is a port on which we have separated by intervals, meaning it was not all revealed at the same time. Why, that you may recite it to the people over a prolonged period. And we have sent it down progressively. And this shows us that the Quran is meant to be a companion for life. Any it's not sufficient that a person just recite the

01:24:28--> 01:24:59

Quran, condensed version, right in just one part of their life and then for the rest of their life, they forget about it. No, it's supposed to be a companion for life over a prolonged period. Say believe in it or do not believe indeed those who were given knowledge before it. When it is recited to them. They fall upon their faces in prostration. Meaning their chins, they fall upon their chins in frustration. So they bend they lower their heads so that the chin

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

Is the chest and they say exalted is our Lord. Indeed the promise of our Lord has been fulfilled. This is the Quran, the revelation that we were waiting for way of eronel as cornea bokun and they fall upon their faces weeping way osito whom who shuara and the Quran increases them in humble submission. So remember, those who truly begin to understand the Quran, then the Koran moves their heart. So they experience a certain joy and a certain

01:25:36--> 01:26:28

fear and a certain humility because of which tears flow from their eyes. So every person who learns the Quran must reach this level, that they feel humility in their heart, I'm listening to the Quran, Muhammad tamie said, that the person who is given knowledge which does not make him cry, then in fact, he does not deserve that knowledge. Because the people have knowledge and livina autoren they are those who cry and humble themselves on listening to the Quran, and then he recited these verses. So it is necessary that we increase in our humility in our submission before Allah subhanaw taala as we listen to the Quran, and for this, we have to first try to understand the meaning of the Quran.

01:26:28--> 01:27:10

And we have to make a habit of listening to the Quran. He listened to the Quran as frequently as possible. This is something that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam also enjoyed. He once asked our beloved Mr Rue de la de la Mourinho to recite the Quran, and he began reciting surah to Nyssa. And then when our beloved mustard looked up to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he saw that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was crying, tears were falling from his eyes. So this is something that we also need to do, or what I'll do Omar I knew he would cry in Salah when he would recite in Nima Escobar fever, Hosni Illa. Any you would be sobbing, you could hear him crying all

01:27:10--> 01:28:01

the way in the back row. So listen to the Quran, and listen to it with silence. Listen to it with attention, listen to it with the presence of heart and let it move you let you allow yourself to cry, colada rula with a man say call upon Allah, or call upon the Most Merciful, whichever name you call to Him belong the best names and do not recite too loudly in your prayer or to quietly But seek between that and intermediate way and say Alhamdulillah Praise to Allah who has not taken a son and has had no partner in his dominion and has no need of a protector out of weakness and glorify Him with great glorification will Kabir hudak be law, so say Alhamdulillah and say Allahu Akbar, because

01:28:01--> 01:28:10

Allahu Akbar, when a person says it tamela Omar Bina somebody will have it fills the space between the sky and the earth, solar.

01:28:12--> 01:28:58

Solar totka have is a source of light for the person who recites it correctly. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he who recites a little calf, as it was revealed come out on zealots, that it will be for him a light from where he is, meaning his residents to Makkah, imagine such a huge distance will be covered with light for him on the Day of Judgment. And whoever reads its last 10 verses will be safe from the fitna of the jail when he emerges. So we see that the solar meeting memorizing its last 10 verses and according to another Hadith, its first 10 verses, then then this is a protection against the fix not of the job. And if this is a protection against the

01:28:58--> 01:29:48

fitting of the job, then what do you think about a fitna that is less than that. And remember, when a person recites it on Friday, then it will be a source of light for him in this world until the next Friday. So it is your week's supply of noon of light. So recite the sudo regularly every Friday and we see that in saluted calf Lima, the mercy of Allah is mentioned seven times. So some or they might say that because of that the seven mercies they there. They become sufficient for a person for the seven days of the week. Well, lo irlam Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu lillahi Leddy unzila Allah or Buddha Hill Kitab Wallonia Allah who every word, All praise is due to Allah who has sent

01:29:48--> 01:30:00

down upon his servant the book and has not made there in any deviance. Why all praise to Allah, because if we began appreciating him for every little

01:30:00--> 01:30:49

Big thing one by one, we would never be able to do so, because we cannot encompass His perfection. We cannot enumerate his favours. This is why Alhamdulillah All praise is for Allah, and especially Alhamdulillah. For what? For the fact that he revealed the Quran for the fact that there is no deviants in the Quran, he has made it straight, upright, balanced a reformer to warn of severe punishment from him, and to give good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds, that they will have a good reward in which they will remain forever. And to warn those who say, Allah has taken the sun, they have no knowledge of it, nor had their father's grave is the word that comes out

01:30:49--> 01:31:40

of their mouths, they speak not except a lie, then perhaps you would kill yourself through grief over them or Prophet sallallahu were to send them if they do not believe in this message, and out of sorrow. This was the grief of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam so much that he would almost die from it. Why he wanted people to believe this is this was his concern. He was concerned about the power of people. And unfortunately, we are only concerned about our worldly comforts. Look at the concerns of the prophets of Allah or do salah and look at ours. Indeed, we have made that which is on the earth adornment for it that we made test them as to which of them is best indeed. Meaning

01:31:40--> 01:32:28

everything that is on the earth is an adornment, it is a Xena a decoration, and a decoration is meant to be temporary. It is not meant to be hung forever. And just like that, this world, everything that is on it is not going to remain forever. And indeed We will make that which is upon it into a barren ground. This is what is going to become of the fancy things of this world. It's going to turn into a barren ground with nothing on the earth. This is why our ultimate concern should not be the world is headed dunya you have bukanlah have Zod towards this dunya meaning Don't be too involved in this dunya and what's going to happen Allah will love you. And was the head femur

01:32:28--> 01:33:13

in the nurse you have brokenness. And don't care Don't be. Don't be very interested in what is with people and people will love you. What interledger eluna merli house or even jus Rosa. Now the first story of the solar is mentioned the story of the people of the cave, it is said or have you thought that the companions of the cave and the inscription were among our signs a wonder you think this was something amazing? In fact, it was amazing. But remember, Allah can do even more amazing things mentioned when the youth retreated to the cave, why to protect their faith. And they said Our Lord, grant us from yourself mercy and prepare for us from our affair, right guidance. They went into self

01:33:13--> 01:33:56

isolation in order to protect their faith, but they called upon Allah, they said would have been a Tina meladerm karma because it is only with Allah's mercy that a person is safe, their worldly matters are secure, and their religious matters are secure. Well, he led him in a muddy narrow shadow, they prayed to Allah for guidance, because it is only Allah who guides His servants, and only the one who is guided by Allah is truly guided. So we see here that these youths, they left their homes in order to protect their Deen. This was in a way Hydra. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also had to make Hitler. Remember the earth is vast. And there's many, many

01:33:56--> 01:34:43

opportunities in the world. So when you when you are faced with an option, which is not permissible for you as a Muslim, then don't think that is the only option for you. This world is has many opportunities. So ask Allah subhanaw taala call upon Allah subhanaw taala for a little bit of any him. So Allah subhanaw taala responded to their draw, and save them how we cast, we cast a cover of sleep over their ears within the cave for a number of years. Imagine they're in the cave in self isolation. And Allah subhanaw taala granted them such security that they fell asleep. Then we awaken to them that we might show which of the two factions was most precise.

01:34:45--> 01:34:45

Excuse me.

01:34:48--> 01:34:59

Then we awaken them that we might show which of the two factions was most precise in calculating what extent they had remained in time. It is we who relate to you their stories

01:35:00--> 01:35:44

In truth, indeed, there were youth, there were young people who believed in their Lord, and we increase them in guidance. And we made firm their hearts when they stood up and said, Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. Never will we invoke besides him any deity, we would have certainly spoken then, and excessive transgression. So we see here that Allah subhanaw taala strength into their hearts, Allah subhanaw taala give them courage, because of which they were able to declare their faith openly, because of which they were able to stay calm, and confident in the face of opposition. These our people have taken besides Him, daddies, why do they not bring for

01:35:44--> 01:36:27

worship of them a clear authority, and who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah a lie, they said to one another, and when you have withdrawn from them, and that which their worship other than Allah retreat to the cave, look at how they made a plan, they didn't just go about randomly, your Lord will spread out for you of His mercy, and will prepare for you from your affair facility. So they decided where they were going to go, they were going to go hide in the cave, and they expected help from Allah. They expected Allah's mercy, they expected facility and ease from Allah. So we need to check ourselves, what do we expect from Allah? What kind of daraz do we make when we

01:36:27--> 01:36:31

are in hardship? Because Allah, Allah says, I am as my servant thinks I am.

01:36:33--> 01:37:14

And had you been present, you would have seen the sun when it rose inclining away from their cave on the right, so they would be undisturbed by the light of the sun, which is why they comfortably slept. Look at our last panel that has helped came. And when it's set, passing away from them on the left, while they were laying within an open space, they're off. So it was airy, it was roomy, that was from the signs of Allah, he whom Allah guides is the rightly guided, but he who he leaves a stray, never will you find for him in protecting guide. So the fact is that Allah subhanaw taala is able to guide his servants, no matter what situation the servants are in. But we have to ask for

01:37:14--> 01:37:55

that guidance. And we have to take that first step, just as these youths took the first step to towards Allah. And you would think them awake while they were actually asleep. And we turn them to the right and to the left, while their dog stretched his four legs at the entrance, if you had looked at them, you would have turned from them in flight, and been filled by them with terror. So we see that the that these people actually slept in the cave for a very, very long time. And How come nobody woke them up. Because if anybody ever came to the mouth of the cave, they would be afraid on seeing these people sleeping in the cave. So whether it was night or day, whether it was

01:37:55--> 01:38:28

cold or hot, these men, these youths were sound asleep, save from all the dangers that were outside the cave. And this happened for so many years. Allah subhanaw taala gave them security when they were surrounded by hardships. And Allah subhanaw taala is capable of doing that, that when you see only hardship and difficulty and and frightening things around you, Allah subhanaw taala is able to grant you a peace and calmness, but you have to turn towards him. And you have to take that first step towards him.

01:38:29--> 01:39:07

And similarly, we awaken to them. And this was after 300 years, that they might question one another. And it is said that when they fell asleep, it was the beginning of the day. And the time that they woke up after 300 years was at the end of the day. So they asked each other center speaker from among them, how long have you remained here, they said, We have remained a day or part of a day, they said your Lord is most knowing of how long you remained any This is not a relevant discussion, and there is no benefit in trying to find out how long we remained. Let's focus on what is important. And what is that. So send one of you with the silver coin of yours to the city and let

01:39:07--> 01:39:54

him look to which is the best of food and bring you provision from it. And let him be cautious. And let no one be aware of you. So Panama, everybody didn't go one person went and what was he to do find the food that was up to her that was as cap that was purest and cleanest, most halon. And then they said well, he has a lot of he should be careful. He should not draw unnecessary attention. You see, a man doesn't mean that a person becomes careless. You have to be careful, their lives were in danger. This is why they have to take extra care when going out in the world. Indeed, if they come to no of you, they will stone you or return you to their religion and never would you succeed than

01:39:54--> 01:39:59

ever. And similarly, we cause them to be found Subhanallah because this was after 300 years.

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

So when he went to buy food, the currency the money was ancient. And this is how it was known that these people, and he, they were gone missing for so long and they had actually been sleeping for so long. So this revealed the truth of the religion that they were upon of belief in Allah subhanaw taala alone. So we caused them to be found that they, and similarly we caused them to be found that they who found them would know that the promise of Allah is truth, and that our end of the hour There is no doubt. Because if Allah subhanaw taala caused them to wake up after 300 years, and he preserved their bodies, soprano Allah, Allah is able to do anything that was when they disputed

01:40:46--> 01:41:25

among themselves about their affair, and then set construct over them a structure because very soon after that, these youths they actually died. So then the people, they wondered, what should we do? So they said, Let's build a structure over their graves, their Lord is most knowing about them said those who prevailed in the matter, we will surely take for ourselves over them a mosque, meaning we will build a house of worship over their graves. And remember, this is something that's not allowed, because it leads to the worship of other than Allah. They will say, there were three, the fourth of them being their dog, and they will say, there were five, the sixth of them being their dog guessing

01:41:25--> 01:42:07

at the unseen, and they will say, there were seven and the eight of them was their dog say my lord is most annoying of their number. None knows them except a few. So do not argue about them except with an obvious argument, and do not inquire about them among the speculators from anyone. So we see that certain details any they're left out, they're left obscure. Why is it that we don't get stuck in the details? We don't get distracted by them. Rather, we have to focus on the lesson. And then we see here that when people argue about such details, then what is it that one should do? Don't Don't prolong that argument. While at the colon Alicia in in the fairing on valleca hada. And never say of

01:42:07--> 01:42:48

anything that indeed I will do that tomorrow. Except when adding if Allah wills Illa, Enya sha Allah. The thing is that the people asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the men who the youths who who had slept the Seven Sleepers, and the Prophet sallallahu already said and did not know about the answer. So he said, I will tell you tomorrow because he expected that revelation would be sent. However, it did not come for many days. So he was taught here, that when you make a promise, then you say in sha Allah, you have to condition it with the will of Allah. And remember your Lord when you forget and say, perhaps my Lord will guide me to what is nearer than this to

01:42:48--> 01:43:26

right conduct. So when you forget, meaning when you forget something, then remember Allah subhanaw taala because they will allow you to remember what you have forgotten. And when you when you forget and you become angry and trade pawn gets the better of you. Again, remember Allah subhanaw taala. So the effect of shaitan will go away. And when you forget to say inshallah, at the time when you make a promise than when you do remember, then say inshallah, and they remained in their cave for 300 years and exceeded by nine, say Allah is most knowing of how long they remained. He has knowledge of the unseen aspects of the heavens and the earth, how seeing is he and how hearing, they have not

01:43:26--> 01:43:56

besides him any protector, and he shares not his legislation with anyone, such an important story, such beautiful lessons, yet people get stuck in the details, they get distracted by their number, how long they remained, what their names were, etc, etc. Whereas what we need to focus on is the lesson that the story teaches about the perfection of Allah subhanaw taala, and the fact that we are in need of him, and that we must depend on him, and we must seek guidance from him.

01:43:57--> 01:44:42

And recite what has been revealed to you of the book of your Lord, there is no change of his words, and never will you find in other than him a refuge. recite the Quran. And keep yourself patient by being with those who call upon their Lord in the morning in the evening, seeking his space. Meaning surround yourself with people who remember Allah, and let not your eyes pass beyond them, desiring adornments of worldly life and do not obey one whose heart We have made heedless of our remembrance, and who follows his desire and whose affair is ever in neglect, meaning do not desire the company of such worldly people. So choose the right company because your company has a huge impact on you. And

01:44:42--> 01:44:59

don't judge people by their superficial, how wealthy they are, and how their clothes are, how famous they are no judge people or rather perceive them based on their actions. So those who remember a lot morning and evening, you should spend time with them. Those who have

01:45:00--> 01:45:15

remember Allah and those who have forgotten Allah, those who are distracted from Allah they're focused on on worldly things, then stay away because then you will develop the same inclinations, Malik Ibn de nafsa

01:45:16--> 01:46:01

tiempo de Hidalgo, tomorrow abre hydro laka. And couldn't her watermark assure that if you carry stones, meaning that the work that you do transferring them from one place to the other, with righteous people, meaning you're doing hard labor with righteous people, that is better for you than eating sweet things with eat with evil people. So spend time with the right type of people and say, the truth is from your Lord, so whoever wills let him believe, and whoever will let him disbelieve indeed we have prepared for the wrongdoers if fire hose walls will surround them. And if they call for relief, they will be relieved with water like murky oil, which will scald their faces, wretched

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

as the drink and evil is the resting place. Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds, indeed, we will not allow to be lost the reward of any who did well in deeds, those will have gardens of perpetual residents. beneath them rivers will flow they will be adoring, they're in with bracelets of gold, and will wear green garments of fine silk and brocade, reclining there and on adorned couches. Excellent is the reward and good is the resting place. Now, another story is mentioned and present to them an example of two men we granted to one of them to gardens of grapevines, and we bordered them with palm trees and placed between them fields of crop. You see,

01:46:46--> 01:47:32

the first story was about the test of faith. This the second story is about the test of, of wealth, that what happens when people are tested with money. So this man had two gardens, how are his gardens each of the two gardens produced its fruit and did not fall short there often anything, and we calls to gush forth within them a river, and he had fruit. So he said to his companion, while he was conversing with him, I am greater than you and wealth and mighty are in numbers of men, so proud and so arrogant and boastful. And he entered his garden, while he was unjust to himself, he said, I do not think that this will perish ever, and I do not think that the hour will occur. And even if I

01:47:32--> 01:48:14

should be brought back to my to my Lord, I will surely find better than this as a return. So because of his wealth, he went to the extent of denying the Hereafter, he became so delusional. And he started to think that he actually deserved good things. So he said, even if there is an afterlife, because I am good here, I will also be good there. his companion said to him, he was not intimidated at all. He said, while he was conversing with him, Have you disbelieved and he who created you from dust and then from a sperm drop and then proportion to you as a man? And you're thinking so you're speaking so highly of yourself? Do you realize what you are? Do you realize your reality your worth?

01:48:15--> 01:48:58

But as for me, even if you deny, I don't care, but for me, He is Allah, my Lord, and I do not associate with my Lord, anyone? And then he reprimanded him. He said, and why did you when you entered your garden, not say, Masha, Allah, La quwata illa Billah what Allah willed, has occurred, there is no power except in Allah, although you see me less than you in wealth and children. Meaning even if you see that you have more than I do, but still do not realize that what you have is because of Allah. Because it may be that my Lord will give me something better than your garden. All power is with Allah. If he gave you he can also give me something better than you have, and will send upon

01:48:58--> 01:49:47

it a calamity from the sky. If Allah gave it to you, he has full power over it and he can destroy your property, and it will become a smooth, dusty ground, or its water will become sunken into the earth. So you would never be able to seek it, meaning things can change very quickly. And so they did, and his fruits were encompassed by ruin. So he began to turn his hands about in dismay over what he had spent on it, while it had collapsed upon its trellises and said, Oh, I wish I had not associated with my Lord, anyone. This is the person who was diluted by his money, he relied upon his property. But remember, no matter how much we have, our success is only in relying upon Allah

01:49:47--> 01:49:53

subhanaw taala and fearing him no matter what, just as the youths did us how we did

01:49:55--> 01:49:59

and there was not for him, and there was for him, no company to aid him.

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

Other than Allah, nor could he defend himself, there the authority is completely for Allah the truth, he is best and reward and best in outcome. And in such situations, any It is made evident to us that all sovereignty is all for Allah, not for us, not for people, and not for the things of this life, because what is the reality of this life and present to them the example of the life of the world, it's being like rain, which we send down from the sky, and the vegetation of the earth mingles with it, and then it becomes dry remnants scattered by the winds, and Allah is Ever all thing. Allah is Ever over all things Perfect in Ability. You see the same beautiful plants, they

01:50:46--> 01:50:59

turn dull and dry, they become dead and broken, and the earth, after it has become lush, it becomes barren, what was so beautiful once upon a time, eventually become so ugly.

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

What was once so firm, become so weak. Such is the nature of life, it changes, there is illness after health, there is pain, there is death, there is separation, because this life is not meant to last forever, just as flowers are not meant to live forever. And the fact is that we don't have control, no matter how much we assume we do we think we do. Allah is the one who is makuta de la over everything, Perfect in Ability, wealth, and children are but adornment of the worldly life. But the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord, for reward and better for one's hope. So alamelu Unbeknown, these are for the world. And our motto, sila have righteous deeds, they are for the

01:51:51--> 01:52:41

hereafter. So what is it that we are focused on? What is it that our time is going into? Yes, children, we have to take care of them. And yes, our wealth also we have to take care of it, but they should not distract us from the vicar of Allah. Remember about Piazza solly had righteous deeds that endure that remain? How is it that they endure because they outlive you? They live beyond you, you you die? But the good deeds that you have done they last forever? And what are these good deeds, all good deeds, but specifically in Hades, we learn to say soprano law. Well hamdulillah wa ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, these words are about to slowly help. And they are much easier to say,

01:52:41--> 01:53:23

than just looking and staring at the things of this world. It's a problem. Well, we spend hours of time so long, just looking at the things of this world shopping around looking around. And what is it that's that that it's going to bring us a temporary benefit. So make sure that you also focus on Belka to slightly help and warn of the day when we will remove the mountains and you will see the earth prominent, and we will gather them and not leave behind from them anyone. And they will be presented before your Lord in rows. And he will say you have certainly come to us as we created you the first time, but you claimed that we would never make for you an appointment, and the record of

01:53:23--> 01:54:09

deeds will be placed open. And you will see the criminals fearful of that within it. And they will say, Oh, woe to us. What is this book that leaves nothing small or great except that it has enumerated it and they will find what they did present before them. And your Lord does injustice to no one. But as I said, they will get angry with the book they will complain that it has recorded everything, but they will not complain that it is unfair. Because this book the record of deeds, it will contain every little and big thing. This is why we should yes we should avoid major sins but we should also avoid the minor ones. Because little sins are enough to gather upon a person and destroy

01:54:09--> 01:54:52

him from a yarmulke with Kala dilaton hyena Yama Yama with another Latin, Shaolin euro, every little good deed and bad deed matters. And you see, sometimes we don't, don't pay much attention to certain things because we belittle them. But remember such little things also, we could be held accountable for them. Because remember, in the sweeter that a love will ask a person I asked you for water and you didn't give me and the person will say Allah you How could you need water when you're the Lord of the worlds and Allah will say my servant as to for water, and had you given him water? You would have found closeness to me. So giving water to someone and we don't think it's a big deal. So we

01:54:52--> 01:55:00

refuse sometimes, but we never know what might be there to save us and what is it that we will be helping

01:55:00--> 01:55:41

accountable for and mentioned, when we said to the angels Prostrate to Adam, and they're frustrated, except for a Billy's soprano was so many times this has been mentioned in the Quran, so that we don't forget this message. The chat pod is truly our enemy. He was at the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord, then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than me, while they're enemies to you? wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange, I did not make them witness to the creation of the heavens and the earth, or to the creation of themselves. And I would not have taken the Miss guiders as assistance. And Word of the Day when he will say call my partners

01:55:41--> 01:56:26

when you claimed and they will invoke them, but they will not respond to them. And we will put between them a valley of destruction. And the criminals will see the fire and will be certain that they that they are to fall there in and they will not find from it away elsewhere. And We have certainly diversified in this court on for the people from every kind of example, but man has ever been most of anything prone to dispute. People argue a lot. And this is something that we need to take care about. That we don't argue for something that is false, especially we should not argue against the Quran, against the truth against Allah subhanaw taala. And nothing has prevented the

01:56:26--> 01:56:38

people from believing when guidance came to them and from asking forgiveness of their Lord, except that there must be followed in the accustomed precedent of the former peoples, or that the punishment should come directly before them.

01:56:39--> 01:57:23

And we send out the messengers except as Bringers of good tidings and Warner's and those who disbelieve dispute by using falsehood, to attempt to invalidate their by the truth, and have taken my verses and that of which they are warned in ridicule. And who is more unjust than one who is reminded of the verses of his Lord, but turns away from them and forgets what his hands have put forth. soprano Allah. You see, when you keep listening to the Quran, it reminds you of your mistakes. And when a person turns away from the Quran, then they end up forgetting themselves. Indeed, we have placed over their hearts coverings less they understand it, and in their ears is

01:57:23--> 01:58:04

deafness. And if you invite them to guidance, they will never be guided than ever. And your Lord is a forgiving full of mercy. If he were to impose blame upon them for what they earned, he would have hastened for them the punishment rather for them as an appointment from which they will never find an escape. And those cities of the past that are well known to you, we destroyed them when they're wronged, and we made for their destruction and appointed time. So take warning, your time is also limited. And now the third story of the sutra, which is a test, which tells us about the test of knowledge, and mentioned when Moses said to his servant, I will not cease traveling until I reach

01:58:04--> 01:58:37

the junction of the two seas or continue for a long period. We are the most artists and I was once giving a hotel, and someone asked him that Who is the most knowledgeable person on earth, and most artists of them said I am. But this was a completely logical conclusion, but it was not humble. So Allah revealed to him that there is a servant of mine who knows more than you. So moosari is set up as to go to him and learn from him. So we'll start instead, I was told to take a fish in a basket and the place where he will lose the fish is the place where he would meet

01:58:38--> 01:59:21

the person who had more knowledge than will start a salon moosari his salon was an LLM. Yet he went to seek more in he was a busy man. Yet he went to learn some more, he practically demonstrated what a busy veneer illuma means that oh my lord, increase me and knowledge. You see, knowledge is something that we need to continue to increase it. Because if you don't keep learning, you're going to forget what you already know. And if you don't keep learning, you're not going to improve. And any effort that a person exerts in order to gain knowledge, whether it is that they're traveling, like most RNA is sent out, or it is that they're spending money, or that they're spending time,

01:59:21--> 01:59:28

whatever effort that they're putting in, it is worth it. We learned that Jabir bin Abdullah traveled

01:59:30--> 02:00:00

to for a month in order to listen to one Hadith from Abdullah bin, Ooh, nice. And he traveled for one month. And remember that the person who travels to seek knowledge who goes out to seek knowledge, then the path to gender is made easy for them. So keep learning and keep growing and never be too arrogant to learn that, oh, if I start learning this then people will think I don't even know this. Mozart is set out. He was so humble over here, and true knowledge is that a person

02:00:00--> 02:00:07

stays humble. They realize that there is someone who knows more than me and I still need to learn more.

02:00:08--> 02:00:50

But when they reach the junction between the two C's meaning the point where they were supposed to be clever, they forgot their fish, and it took its course into the scene slipping away. So when they had passed beyond it, Moosa said to his boy, bring us our morning meal. We have certainly suffered in this our journey, much fatigue, he said, Did you see when we retired to the rock where we stopped arrest, I forgot the fish over there. You see, Mozart s&m? He was hungry, he was tired. And now his servant had made a mistake. This was really not a good combination, hunger, fatigue, and worry, any, this is not a good combination. But Allah subhanaw taala tested him and this is what happens when

02:00:50--> 02:01:29

you start learning something you are tested, you are faced with difficulties, because this is a test for you that are you going to quit? Are you going to give up? Or are you going to keep going? It is said earlier in McCulloch that hood Baba, give knowledge all of yourself and you'll manage to take some of it. He said and done made me forget it except shame upon that I should mention it. And it took its course into the seat amazingly. So it was a mistake. But he admitted it was it Sam said that is what we were seeking. So they returned following their footprints. He didn't get angry over here. And they found a servant from among our servants. So as they went back to the place where they

02:01:29--> 02:02:16

had rested, where the fish had escaped, they found a hidden over there. And who was he Arbor demeanor Eva Dena, a servant from among our servants, to whom we had given him a lot from us, Mercy from Us, and we have taught him from us, real man is certain knowledge. You see a leader was a servant of Allah, meaning he belongs to Allah. So whatever he did, he did in obedience to Allah. And we see that everybody the fact that he was a servant, it worshiper is mentioned first, then Allah is mentioned and then knowledge is mentioned. And this is the process, you begin with Riba, you show compassion to people. And that is how you increase in your knowledge. And if there is knowledge

02:02:17--> 02:02:57

without compassion, if there is knowledge without worship, then that knowledge is not knowledge. It is an argument against a person, it is a burden, it is a curse, because it only hardens the heart. Masada has sometimes said to him, May I follow you on the condition that you teach me from what you have been taught to have sound judgment? He said, Indeed, with me, you will never be able to have patience, and how can you have patience for what you do not encompass in knowledge. And this is true. When people don't understand something, they become impatient. Musalia saddam said, you will find me if Allah wills patient, look at the willingness of Musa alayhis salaam. And this is the

02:02:57--> 02:03:38

willingness that we should show also, when it comes to learning that it's possible that initially we don't understand but be patient. Just wait, observe, and with time, you will know. But we are too hasty, and we jumped to conclusions too quickly. And he said I will not disobey you in any order. He said that if you follow me, do not ask me about anything until I make to you about it mentioned meaning you have to learn quietly. So they set out until when they had embarked on the ship and headed toward open he broke it. masala Sam said have you torn it open to drown its people. You have certainly done a grave thing. We'll start listening couldn't keep quiet. And Heather said Did I not

02:03:38--> 02:04:23

say that with me? You would never be able to have patience. Musashi Salaam said do not blame me for what I forgot. He shows humility and do not cover me in my matter with difficulty. So they set out a way that excused him until when they met a boy and killed him. Musashi Sam said have you killed a pure soul for other than having killed a soul? Beating an innocent child? You have certainly done a deplorable thing. So mozzarella is Sam here he reprimanded a Heather as if to ask him that, why did you do something like this? So why do you have to do all of this we will find out in the next juice. And this is our test when it comes to learning. Because sometimes we want to learn things very

02:04:23--> 02:04:59

quickly, immediately. But the process of learning requires time. It requires patience. It requires patience. So we should never think that we know everything, nor should we be too quick to criticize and jump to conclusions. And we should always be patient with knowledge. And the story especially teaches us the importance of learning by observation through real experiences. And for that silence is needed exactly as Musa alayhis salaam was told. inshallah we'll conclude over here so practical lahoma we'll be having a shadow Allah

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