Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:10--> 00:00:29

are all the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Hill Karim Baba slightly acidity were Sidley Emery was slowly rock data melissani of coho coli along with Matthew Colby was a deadly sin. He was also him at the Colby Armenia a little bit earlier mean

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

the status and paradise of those who read the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that on the Day of Judgment, the Quran will appear in the form of a lean human being. And it will say, Do you recognize me? So the person will say No, I do not recognize you. The Quran will say I am your companion, the one who kept you thirsty in the day, who kept you thirsty in the scorching heat and awake in the night. Meaning even though it was so hot, you still recited the Quran, and you got thirsty. And there were times when you were fasting and you were not able to drink water. But you did that why in order to recite the Quran, and you stayed awake in the night again reciting the

00:01:22--> 00:02:12

Quran, it will say that every trader would pursue his articles of trade. And today instead of being with any trader, I am here for you, meaning people go after what they love. So the Quran will be with the person who spent time with the Quran, then he will be given kin, then he will be given kingship in his right hand and eternity in his left hand, he will be made to wear the crown of respect and dignity, his parents will be made to wear two silky robes that will be more precious than the world and whatever that is in it. They will both ask, why have we been given this. So they will be told because of your teaching your child the Quran, then the carrier of the Quran will be

00:02:12--> 00:02:29

asked on the day of judgment to start recitation of the Quran and begin ascending the ranks of Paradise and read slowly and beautifully as you did in the world for your final grade will be the recitation of the last verse with you.

00:02:30--> 00:03:10

And this hadith shows us that the time that we spend with the Quran, we should really do it with happiness end we should really recite the Quran, listen to it with happiness, because this is an investment that we are making into ourselves. And this is something that we also need to teach our children so that they don't get bored. And they and they actually feel encouraged for memorizing the Quran or learning it's recitation, because all of us need that motivation. And one more thing that we see in this hadith is that a person will be told on the day of judgment to recite slowly and beautifully and this is something that we also need to pay attention to that especially when we are

00:03:10--> 00:04:08

reciting. Let us not rush to complete the page or to complete the sutra. Let us recite with beauty and take as long as it needs. But don't rush in sha Allah. Just number 17 Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, sola till ambia it Katara Bella Nancy Hey Sabu, whom were whom feel of letting more Elune the time of their account has approached for the people while they are in heedlessness turning away, meaning the day of death, the day of judgment is drawing near, with every passing moment, it seems far, but in fact, it is not. And there is hisab there is accounting, when we will be interrogated, we will be asked about what we spent our lives doing, what kind of things we did. We see that every

00:04:08--> 00:04:59

now and then, we are reminded of our mortality, but we soothe ourselves with worldly comforts, distracting ourselves, but being distracted from a reality does not make it go away. The person who realizes that this life is not forever, that there is hisab there is questioning after death, then they're able to control their desires. They're able to turn towards Allah subhanaw taala in repentance, and then they feel comfort in doing good things. They don't turn away. They turn to words Allah soprano tada the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us very clearly about the newness of this day. He said, I do not belong to the world, nor does it belong to me. I was sent

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

While the hour is racing with me Nesta vehicle, meaning both are as if trying to get ahead of each other. This is how soon the Day of Judgment is going to occur. in another direction. He demonstrated its nearness by joining his two fingers together, OBEY Him in Cabo de la hora and who said that when a third of the night had passed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up and he said, Oh people, remember Allah. remember Allah, the Raja convulsion is coming, followed by the LA diva, the subsequent, the subsequent one and he was referring to the tremors, the earthquakes that will happen at the Day of Judgment, death and what it brings is coming, death and what it brings is coming. So

00:05:45--> 00:06:25

wake up, get up and do something. Don't sleep in your heedlessness don't turn away in your heedlessness. So remember, with each passing day, and with each passing night, our death is drawing near. And the Day of Judgment is drawing near. The countdown has already begun. And with each day worldly life is only getting shorter. So we are drawing closer to death than to life. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us about how suddenly the Day of Judgment is going to come. And he also said the agenda is near.

00:06:27--> 00:06:53

He also said the agenda is nearer to you then your shoelace and so is the fire of hell. So don't think it's far more yet D him in victory Mila be him more death in elastomer Oh, who were whom you and our boon. No mention comes to them a new from their Lord, except that they listen to it while they are at play with their hearts distracted.

00:06:55--> 00:07:40

Lucha tan kulu boom with their hearts distracted, meaning they hear the Quran with distracted hearts. They listen to the Quran, while they are completely inattentive, they're too busy having fun to pay attention to the Quran. And when a person does this with the book of Allah, then they fail to benefit from it. No matter how powerful those verses may be, they will not have an impact on the heart of such a person who is distracted. Why? Because this person will fail to comprehend the meaning of those verses, they will fail to comprehend the wisdom which is contained within those verses, and then their heart is not going to move. And those who do wrong, conceal their private

00:07:40--> 00:08:22

conversation saying is this prophet except a human being like you? So would you approach magic while you are aware of it? So we see this is how the people of Morocco would dismiss the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by saying things like, Oh, he's only a human being. So are you really going to follow him? And they would dismiss the impact of the Quran by calling it magic. So instead of paying attention to its message, they would think of ways to to thwart its effect. So the response of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. To such lies, to such rejection to such baseless criticism, what should it be? The Prophet said, My Lord knows, whatever is said throughout the

00:08:22--> 00:09:13

heaven and earth, and he is assumere the hearing and Arlene, the knowing, but they say, the revelation is but a mixture of false dreams, rather, he has invented it, rather he is a poet. So we see that there was not a single any insult or accusation except that they smeared the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with it, they said, so let him bring us a sign, just as the previous messengers were sent with miracles. Alice Panthera says Mad Men at popular woman calm yet in Atlanta her Fr. homeodomain, on Not a single city, which we destroyed, believed before them, so will they believe meeting the previous nations received miracles? They did not believe so what makes them

00:09:13--> 00:09:57

different now, and we sent not before you except men, to whom we revealed. So ask the people of the message if you do not know. Meaning always Allah subhanaw taala has sent human beings as prophets. So if people find that strange, they should look at an addict, the people of the previous scriptures, meaning the Jews and the Christians look at their scripture, what do they say? Who were the previous prophets were they human or something else? And in general also, we learned a very important rule from this part of the ayah that asked the people have the message if you do not know. Meaning that when you do not know about something, then find out don't settle with being ignorant

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

with not knowing find out

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

what the truth is find net find out what the answer is. Mmm as Julie said, that the bearer of the Quran studies the Quran to discipline himself according to it, and he is not pleased with himself to perform with ignorance, what Allah the mighty and majestic has obligated upon him, because he has made knowledge and comprehension, his guide towards every goodness. So, a person who wants to live by the code on then they will not settle with, you know, questions that are not answered, they will find out. And sometimes Yes, we hesitate asking, we feel shy, that people will judge us that you don't even know this much, but it is important to ask so that we can know. And we did not make the

00:10:45--> 00:11:32

profits forms, meaning the profits did not have such bodies not eating food, nor were they immortal on Earth. They died and they left this world. Then we fulfilled for them the promise, and we save them and whom we will and destroyed the transgressors, Lacan and zelner la con keytab and fee, the crew comb FNS RP loan, we have certainly sent down to you a book in which is your mentioned that will you not reason? Meaning, aren't you going to pay heed? Aren't you going to give some attention to this book, which is about you fee the croco and fee, the colloquium. What this means is that the Quran mentions you, meaning it talks about you, you are the subject of the Quran, so Aren't you

00:11:32--> 00:12:17

going to take any interest in it? So proper law, any if you find out that your name was mentioned in a news article, you will take that clipping and save it for your great great, great grandchildren to see. And the Quran talks about us. And we need to take interest in the Quran. The Quran, it mentions Phoebe Cracow, meaning it mentions what is good in you, and what is bad in you, your strengths and your weaknesses, the good things that you do and the mistakes that you make. So if you really want to know yourself, if you really want to understand yourself, then you have to study the Quran. Because the Quran is like a mirror. It helps you see yourself, it helps you understand yourself. And

00:12:17--> 00:13:01

then fee lukaku also means that it brings honor and glory to you if you follow it. And fee the curriculum also means that it mentions details related to your religion, so that you can do what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded you of if you don't know, then you will be living life in ignorance. And it also mentions the things that you need to know on which your life and success depends on silica and zelner la con ketevan fee be critical. And we see that in the time of the companions, especially at the time afterwards that there were people who were previously slave and because of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala gave them so much dignity and honor. Romano de la Horne,

00:13:01--> 00:13:48

who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that by this book, Allah will exalt some people and degrade others. And how many a city which was unjust have we shattered and produced after it another people? Now this surah is Sunil ambia, the suit of the profits. So we will see that a lot of verses are related to profits, the tests that they faced the difficulties that they endured at the hands of their people, and then how Allah subhanaw taala help them and how they responded to their nations. And when its inhabitants perceived our punishment at once they fled from it. Some angel said, Do not flee, but returned to where you were given luxury and to your homes. Perhaps you

00:13:48--> 00:14:37

will be questioned learn the country alone. They said Oh, woe to us. Indeed we were wrongdoers, any of that time, they admitted, and this happens with so many people that all their lives people are in heedlessness just pursuing desires. But then when death comes knocking at the door, at that time, a person is filled with regrets in the corner. Lovely mean. And that declaration of theirs did not cease until we made them as a harvest mowed down extinguished like a fire. Meaning there were like a pile of ashes, not a degree of life remained in them. Women Hakuna sama, our auto Mama baina Humala, a been and we did not create the heaven and earth and that between them in play, meaning this was

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

not all aimless, for fun. No, this is all for a good reason. Had we intended to take a diversion, meaning a game to amuse ourselves with we could have taken it from what is with us, meaning then we would not have created you, if indeed we were to do so. Rather we dash we hurl the truth upon falsehood ended.

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

destroys it, and thereupon it departs. And for you is destruction from that which you describe, meaning once the truth comes, then falsehood cannot remain. To Him belongs, whoever is in the heavens and the earth, and those near him are not prevented by arrogance from his worship, nor do they tire. These are the angels who are near Allah. And how are they described, that they are not prevented by arrogance from his worship, nor do they get tired, they don't get bored. And because of their humility, what happens? You said, beehoon and Layla when the whole layer two rule, they exalt Him night and day and do not slacken, meaning they don't even take a break. They don't get tired by

00:15:49--> 00:16:35

worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the sky that heaven creeks, and it has every right to Creek, because there is no place that could contain four fingers in the heavens, except that there is an angel over there standing, making bluecore or making such that to Allah, meaning it is worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. Constantly, whether it is night or it is day, whether years have gone by, they're constantly worshiping Allah, and they don't slack and they don't get it. They don't get bored. They don't stop any bees are angels. But what happens to us we of course, we lose interest, we get distracted, we begin to yawn. And this is the etiquette

00:16:35--> 00:17:16

that we have been taught actually, that we recite the Quran, as long as your heart is in it. And once you start to feel tired, any Don't, don't push yourself to recite the Quran in us in a state where your heart is not interested. Because then you will begin to resent it, you will begin to dislike it. And then your intention will not be that pure, your effort will not be that beautiful. And that will affect your reward also. So at that time, take a break when you're too sleepy when you're getting tired, take a break, freshen up, and then come back and then start again. So this is us, right? us human beings, we have our limitations, our weaknesses, but it doesn't mean that we

00:17:16--> 00:17:56

begin to feel very lazy now. And then every time we open the Koran, because we're not that interested, we don't even try. We don't even exert any effort. No, we have to exert effort, we have to push ourselves. And you know what, we have to set goals for ourselves on a regular basis. You know, sometimes what happens is that we start making bacon and then someone comes in, starts talking to us, you know, children, they interrupt us, and then we forget what we were saying. And then we forget to complete our you know, of course. So it is very important that we set our goals and we fix certain times. And then we also communicate with our children, that you know, Mama is doing her car

00:17:56--> 00:18:43

right now, just give me a few minutes, then I will talk to you. Right, so they should also know so that we are able to complete our adkar or have men taken for themselves Gods from the earth who resurrect the dead, had there been within the heavens and earth Gods besides Allah, they both would have been ruined. So Exalted is Allah, Lord of the Throne, above what they describe, we see that when there is anything over which multiple individuals have power over, then any we see how those things, those places, those items, how they get ruined, they get destroyed. Why because each each does whatever they please. And then there is conflict and because of that conflict, we see how

00:18:43--> 00:19:34

things places even children, at times they suffer. So the fact that the heavens and the earth are any existing in such harmony, what does that prove that there is only one God? So Exalted is Allah, Lord of the Throne above what they describe, Lao use Allah if you were home use alone, he is not questioned about what he does, but they will be questioned. So remember, no one can ask Allah about what he does. But he has the right to ask everyone about what they do. Allah subhanaw taala is not to be questioned about what he decides regarding his creation. Rather, he has the right to ask his creatures about what they do. So we should not be obsessed about you know, thinking all the time.

00:19:34--> 00:20:00

Why did God allow this? Why was this destined? And why did Allah commanded us to do this? We should be concerned about the fact that we will be asked about what we are doing. We have to realize who we are, and we have to realize who our Lord is. He is not questioned. He is the owner. He is an alim. He is a Hakeem. He can do whatever he wants, and who are we we are

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

Look, we are owned by him, and he is the one who has commanded us. So there is no equality over here. So we should remember our place, or have they taken God's besides Him, say, produce your proof. This Quran is the message for those with me. And the message of those before me meeting the previous nations were also given scriptures, but most of them do not know the truth. So they're turning away, and we send them out before you any messenger except that we reveal to him that there is no day to accept me. So worship me this was the message in every scripture brought by every messenger, and they say, the Most Merciful has taken a son, Exalted is He rather they are but

00:20:45--> 00:21:11

honored servants, they cannot proceed him in Word, and they act by his command, he knows what is presently before them, and what will be after them. And they cannot intercede except on behalf of one whom he approves. And they from fear of him are apprehensive. This is the state of Allah servants, that they are afraid of Allah, they're apprehensive.

00:21:12--> 00:21:52

So, a lot of times, you know, people will come up with things regarding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, for example, that he will intercede, and he will say whatever he wants, and he will fight for his oma. And then Allah will not be able to say anything to him anyway, it's a stop at Allah. It's difficult to even listen to such songs of poetry and praise for the prophets of Allah who were to send them, even if you know, you know, in poetry, yes, it's, it's understandable that things are not always realistic, but we have to be truthful. We cannot go on raising the status of the prophets of Allah who are to send them and the servants of Allah over Allah zildjian ne remember

00:21:52--> 00:22:43

the place of the creation, that it is that the creation is below the Creator. So they from fear of him are apprehensive, and whoever of them should say indeed I am a god besides Him, meaning even if a righteous servant of Allah says that, that one we would recompense with hell. Thus do We recompense the wrongdoers have those who disbelieved, not considered that the heavens and the earth were a joint entity, they were together, they were one one thing, meaning it was a state of singularity, and we separated them and made from from water every living thing, then will they not believe? So two very important facts are mentioned over here. That how the skies and the earth were

00:22:43--> 00:23:27

joined entity. And a lot of what exactly this means garble about said that Alice puntata, separated the sky and the earth by admitting air between the two space between the two, it came I said that the sky was closed, the earth was closed, so no water rained and no plant group. And today, there is a big bang theory, any allowable arm, but the fact is, that the sky and the earth did not exist as they exist today. Allah is the one who brought them into existence. And all of this variety of creation that we see did not exist before. Allah is the one who brought every living thing alive from water, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said kulu Shea in Holyoke on a map,

00:23:28--> 00:24:03

everything was created from water meaning every living thing was created from water. So now you know will they not believe so? Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created us any then what are we supposed to do? This life is not for plain amusement. All of this has a purpose and we are supposed to be spending this time in servitude to Allah soprano Tada. So what is it that we are doing and we placed within the earth firmly said mountains less than it should shift with them and we made they're in mountains passes.

00:24:04--> 00:24:51

And we made they're in mountain passes as roads that they might be guided meaning natural roadways, highways through the mountains so that people can find their way and travel from place to place and we made the sky a protected ceiling, but they from its signs are turning away while home or at home or at a loon and this shows us how important it is for us to pay attention to both types of Iet remember there are two types of IR is shutter iya meaning versus that Allah soprano tada has revealed the code on that deserves our attention. And then I add konia the signs that Allah subhanaw taala has placed within the creation for us to observe to listen to to understand to pay attention

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

to. So both of these deserve our attention. So we must learn about them, study them, reflect them.

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

reflect upon them. And if it's done with the right intention, then this is also a bother. Sometimes what happens is that if a person is studying, for example, at school, you know, they begin to think that it's a waste of my time. This is not a waste of time, when it's done with the right intention, when you do it with the intention that I am studying Allah's creation. And it is he who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, all heavenly bodies in an orbit are swimming. And we did not grant to any man before you eternity, meaning on Earth. So if you die, would they be eternal. So we see here that even prophets had to leave the world who said to the Prophet

00:25:42--> 00:26:27

sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, that live however long you want, you will indeed die, love whomever, whomever you want, you will eventually leave him. So the fact is that there is no permanence in this world, there is no together forever in this life. And there is only eternity were in the home of the hereafter in general. So the people of Makkah, you know, they would say about the prophets of Allah who were to send them that just wait for him to die, you know, very soon he is going to die in this new religion that he's come up with is going to come to an end. So it is said efa emit for Mohali dunes, if you die, would they be eternal. So don't wish for people to die because even if they die

00:26:27--> 00:27:18

in a year, you're not living in this world forever. Every knifes every soul will taste death, and we test you with evil and with good as trial and to us you will be returned. So we see over here that death is certain for every nups every human. And in this life, Allah subhanaw taala tests us with what when evil and with good and evil and good both are a trial. And after this, we have to return to Allah subhanaw taala. So things don't happen at random in this life. And we see that there is an either all ears in this life nor hardship, there is a blend of both. And they come You know, ease and hardship, you know, they come and leave just like seasons do. Why? Why is it that things are

00:27:18--> 00:28:00

always changing, so that the patient and the Grateful are set apart from the rest. So that we are tested through things that we like, and also things that we don't like, so that we remember that good things in this life are not going to last forever. This life is not everything. There is something better that awaits us, because you see when we go through some difficulties and pain in life. Any What does it do? It ruins worldly pleasure, right? It ruins worldly pleasure. And then that allows you to think about the home of the hereafter. And then you're like, Okay, you know, you're you're more inclined to, you know, performing more righteous deeds, you're more inclined to

00:28:00--> 00:28:43

giving sadaqa that same money that you were so attached to before, because you went through hardship. Now you're so eagerly You know, you're willing to spend it in good causes. And when those who disbelieve see you they take him not except in ridicule, saying is this the one who insults your gods, and they are at the mention of the Most Merciful disbelievers. Subhan Allah, you see the people of makup they loved their idols, they had way too much respect for their idols. So if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that La Ilaha in the law, there is no god worthy of worship except for Allah, they would take that statement as an insult, that this is an insult to our gods.

00:28:43--> 00:29:29

However, when Allah subhanaw taala was described as a Russian man, the Entirely Merciful, the extremely merciful, they would reject that. So it is mentioned over here that they have so much tolerance for multiple Gods but when it comes to the beautiful descriptions of Allah subhanaw taala they cannot tolerate that. They cannot accept that. And this is the reason why when Bismillah R Rahman Rahim was written in Saudi Arabia in the treaty, any they had that removed, because they wouldn't accept it? Holy cow, insane woman, Nigerian man was created of haste. And this is the reason why as human beings, we get anxious, we get impatient and worried. We fret and fear we panic

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

and worry, you know, we regret and we grieve. And because of all of this, we fail to exist in the present. You see, because of our hastiness, we either dwell in our past or in our future, because any we're always thinking about what happened before it might happen again. And so because it might happen again, I have to, you know, that fear causes us to become extremely anxious.

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

So it is said here, I will show you my signs, so do not impatiently urge me. So we see that even though we are naturally

00:30:10--> 00:31:00

predisposed towards being anxious and hasty, we're still able to manage and control this hastiness because if it was not possible, then Allah subhanaw taala would not have commanded us, let the strategy alone, do not impatiently urge me. So how is it that we can manage this urge Allah, this hastiness that we, that we learn to folk, we practice focusing on the present than now that we take things one day at a time, because if we keep thinking about everything that happened in the past, and then everything that might happen in the future, and he we would get overwhelmed, and that would really cause us to panic. So, take it one day at a time, one task at a time, bring yourself back to

00:31:00--> 00:31:23

the moment, bring yourself back to the task at hand. And you see when we become anxious, that is when we become hasty, right? We make quick decisions, which are sometimes detrimental, and we regret later on. So be more mindful of the present practice mindfulness, so od comm iottie falletta strategy Loon.

00:31:24--> 00:32:08

And we see that calmness which is the opposite of urgent, any This is also in our federal meaning. This is also something that Allah subhanaw taala has created as upon any we're not only predisposed to being hasty and impatient and anxious, we also have the capacity to be calm. So we learned the Hadees that once a certain delegation came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as soon as they arrived, everybody, you know, as they were, they just jumped to be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and to begin kissing his hands, and you know, embracing him, etc. And then finally, one of the men he came, because he came later, because first he went to his luggage,

00:32:08--> 00:32:47

he changed his clothes because they had just arrived after a journey. He changed his clothes, he washed up, and then he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and he met him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to him, that, that you have two qualities that Allah subhanaw taala likes, gentleness and deliberation. So he asked, Have I acquired them or has Alas, penetrative created them in my nature? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No, Allah has created them in you. So he said, Alhamdulillah that Allah has created these abilities in me or these characteristics in me. So yes, some people they are no more calm. And other people have to make

00:32:47--> 00:33:36

themselves calm, right? But they are able to it is possible to calm you know, to keep yourself calm in the face of, you know, anxiety or in the face of challenges. And it is important that we don't allow our hastiness to drive us to lead us because then we will suffer. Where colonna Mata hadn't worked in kuntum saw the pain, and they say, when is this promise if you should be truthful, if those who disbelieved but knew the time, when they will not avert the fire from their faces or from their backs, and they will not be aided. Rather, it will come to them unexpectedly and bewilder them, and they will not be able to repel it, nor will they be reprieved. And already were messengers

00:33:36--> 00:34:20

ridiculed before you, but those who mock them were enveloped by what they used to ridicule, say, who can protect you at night, or by day from the Most Merciful, but they are from the remembrance of their Lord, turning away. Notice how the night is mentioned before the day who can protect you at night, or by day? Why is the night mentioned first because if you think about it, night is the default, right? There's darkness and light is because of the sun, because of the rising of the sun. So, night is the default and then the day comes and leaves. And then also in the context if you think about it, the night is more scarier than the day we are more vulnerable in darkness than we

00:34:20--> 00:35:00

are in in light. So it is Allah subhanaw taala he protects us in darkness when we are unable to see what dangers are are ahead of us. Or do they have gods to defend them other than us, they are unable even to help themselves, nor can they be protected from us. But on the contrary, we have provided good things for these and their fathers until life was prolonged for them. Because typically what happens is that when people get wealth and you know and good things in this life, generation after generation, then they stop worrying about their deeds, about their beat about their actions because they don't

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

need to worry about anything. So they feel that they're good times will never end. And they're very satisfied with their circumstances. So they're not concerned anymore about pleasing Allah subhanaw taala. So when people experience blessings for a long time, then what happens is that majority of the people, they get deceived, whereas in reality, it is a test, then do they not see that we set upon the land reducing it from its borders, so it is they who will overcome. And at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, it happened with the machine that, that politically, any overtime, they were losing their freedom. So don't they see that they're losing control of the land,

00:35:46--> 00:36:28

say, I only warn you by revelation, but the deaf do not hear the call when they're warned. And if as much as a whiff of the punishment of your large touch them, they would surely say, Oh, woe to us. Indeed, we have been wrongdoers, and we placed the scales of justice for the Day of Resurrection, meaning on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will set up the scale in which our deeds will be weighed. And this is something that we have to believe and this is part of our faith, this is part of a man will after all, so, no soul will be treated unjustly at all, why? because well wasn't new yoma eternal Hulk, and if there is even the weight of a mustard seed, we will bring it forth,

00:36:28--> 00:37:15

because that scale is very sensitive, it is very just It is very sale, it is very, it is very fair. So, if there is something that is equal to the weight of a mustard seed, even that will be brought and sufficient are we as accountant. So the scale is basically a formality of us. primadonna is not in need of it. He is just without even using the scale. But the scale, the wasn't will be used on the Day of Judgment, to establish justice, to prove to people that no injustice has been done to you. And this is the reason why we have to pay attention to the little things as well. Earlier I had mentioned to you how La ilaha illAllah Allahu Akbar subhana wa Alhamdulillah These are words which

00:37:15--> 00:37:55

are having in the scale, the vicar of Allah, which we don't really pay much attention to, is very heavy in the scale. So we have to make sure that during the day during the night, we you know, we keep our tongue busy with the vicar of Allah, that our tongue should not just be busy talking to people, and especially now that everybody's home, all of our time and our energy should not just go in just talking to each other. Yes, there's there should be time talking to one another, but there should also be time spent in making Likud remembering Allah subhanaw taala because these words will be very, very heavy in the scale. And then it is said that there will be no judge no injustice at

00:37:55--> 00:38:39

all, no injustice whatsoever. So, we learned that on the Day of Judgment, a person will be brought and his records which will be in the form of 99 registers, they will be placed on one side of the scale and these records will be so huge and they will be filled with deeds and this person any he will be asked to do deny any of this meaning any of the sins that are mentioned over here that are recorded in these books. Do you deny any of that? And he will say no, he will be asked did my angels wrong you were they unfair to you? Did they write something that you did not do? No. Do you have any excuse no you I don't have any excuse. So the person will think that I am me I'm done because all of

00:38:39--> 00:39:32

my deeds are being weighed against me. And then a card is small card will be placed on the other side of the scale and that card will have on it a shadow Allah ilaha illAllah or unknown Mohammed Abu who will assume and because of that card, the scale will tip soprano love the scale will tip meaning this is the value the weight of the Kadima La Ilaha Illa law to believe is not something small, what are called Athena musawah hold on and full con and we had already given more sun, how long the criteria and the total which was a light and a reminder for the righteous, who fear their Lord and seen while they are of the hour apprehensive and this put on is a blessing message vicon

00:39:32--> 00:40:00

Mobile rakuen which we have sent down then are you with it unacquainted really are you unfamiliar with the book of Allah, this book which is mobarak, which is full of Baraka and remember Baraka is increased and permanence and the growth. So, this book is not like any other book. Its benefit is endless. It is ever increasing. You see in different times in different places. People have benefited from the Quran in so many different

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

ways they have benefited spiritually materially from you know, financially in their, in their ibadah in their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala in their lives in their families, because of this Koran. So antem lumen Kiran, are you going to turn away from this? Are you going to remain unacquainted and unfamiliar with the book of Allah? So don't Don't be like that don't deprive yourself, take it happily, lovingly, and increase in your blessings by spending more time with the book of Allah. And we had certainly given Ibrahim his sound judgment before. And we were off him well knowing when he said to his father and his people, what are the statues to which you are

00:40:40--> 00:41:21

devoted? They said, We found our fathers worshipping worshipers of them. And we see that when it comes to idolatry, this is really the only proof that people have that it is tradition. He said, You were certainly you and your father's in manifest error. They said, Have you come to us with the truth? Or are you of those who just he said no, rather your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, who created them, and I to that am of those who testify. So I'm not joking around over here. I'm serious. And I swear by Allah, I will show the plan against your idols after you have turned and gone away. So he made them into fragments except a large one among them, that they might return to

00:41:21--> 00:42:06

it. They said, who has done this to our gods, indeed, he is of the wrongdoers. They said we heard a young man mentioned them who is called Ibrahim, they said then bring him before the eyes of the people that they may testify. They said, Have you done this to our gods or Ibrahim? He said rather this the largest of them did it so ask them if they should be able to speak? So he did this, at the meeting, he broke their idols, this was a very drastic measure, but he did this to make them realize, to make them understand, so that they would think and then when he said that ask them meaning the idols who broke them, perhaps it was the largest of them any ask ask them if they can

00:42:06--> 00:42:50

speak they will be able to tell you so they returned to blaming themselves and set to each other. Indeed you are the wrongdoers you are at fault. Ibrahim is right, these idols neither speak nor are they able to defend themselves. So they got it, they understood what it is and I was showing them but then they reverse themselves saying you have already known that these do not speak they admitted the inability of their idols to speak he said then do you worship instead of Allah that which does not benefit you at all nor harm you off to you and to what you worship instead of Allah? What are you doing? Now? Will you not use reason? They said burn him and support your gods. If you are to act

00:42:51--> 00:43:41

cola Yeah. nanocone bottle then what's an M and Allah Ibrahim? Allah said, All fire be coolness and safety upon Ibrahim Subhana Allah. They refuse to accept the truth even after seeing it even after admitting in their hearts. They refuse to accept it. And then what did they do? They decided to burn Ibrahim or a sinner just finish him completely kill him alive. And they plotted. They built a huge fire. But their plot to remember was still in Allah soprano TARDIS control. Remember, if the fire burns, it burns by the law of Allah by the permission of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala can change that any moment anytime, for whoever that he wants. This is why he said Bowden was Salomon, Allah

00:43:41--> 00:44:15

Ibrahim be coolness and senem meaning the coolness and safety because cold can freeze right and that can also be detrimental. It can it can cause any, it can literally kill a person, frostbite, etc. It can kill a person. So the fire was not just called it was also security. It was also safety. And then either Ibrahim it was only for Ibrahim or his son and not for the rest of the people. Otherwise the nature of fire would be changed until the day of judgment.

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

Without Adobe he Caden and they intended for him harm, but we made them the greatest losers. And we delivered him and loop to the land which we had blessed for the world's unlucky Baraka fee her and this is the land of beta marked as Jerusalem

00:44:34--> 00:44:59

and we gave him his help and your coop In addition, and all of them we made righteous, Allah subhanaw taala blessed Ibrahim and he sent him with his help or the his center. Meaning is how can I send him his son? And then jacoba nephew Nathan, your coop and addition? Who was your Cobra Sam his grandson, meaning Allah subhanaw taala gave him more than he had asked for. He didn't pray for grandson. He prayed for a son.

00:45:00--> 00:45:43

And the last prime target gave him a son and a grandson. This is Allah subhanaw taala his generosity, Ibrahim and I said ma da will be heavily meaner Saudi hate that, Oh my Lord grant me among those who are righteous meaning grant me righteous, good children. And Allah subhanaw taala gave him sons and grandsons, any what a blessing. This is how Allah is you, you take one step Allah will give you even more than what you imagined. And we made them leaders, guided by our command, and we inspire to them the doing of good deeds, establishment of prayer, and giving of Zakat, and they were worshippers of us. So we see that among his children, there were many righteous worshipers and

00:45:43--> 00:46:33

to loot, we gave judgment and knowledge and we and we saved him from the city that was committing wicked deeds. Indeed, they were people of evil, defiantly disobedient, and we admitted him into our mercy. Indeed, he was of the righteous Lutheranism was solid and his nation his people they use to terminal haba is they used to commit wicked deeds, what a contrast when you hand and mentioned when he called to Allah before that time, so we responded to him and saved him and his family from the great distress mean and accountability alim. And what was this COVID Aleem that know how to use Sam was faced with this is of course referring to the long time that he spent calling people to the

00:46:33--> 00:47:20

worship of Allah subhanaw taala only. And remember, when people reject you, not just once or twice, but over and over again, and their rejection turns into hostility and mockery. And then abandonment, any, it's very hurtful, it turns into unconditional leave. And the longer it trial is, the more difficult it feels. So it was a great distress. But Allah subhanaw taala relieved him from that electronic data saved him from that. And it has said that on COVID, Arlene can also refer to the flood, the drowning, because that certainly is very, very distressful. And we saved him from the people who denied our signs. Indeed, they were a people of evil. So we drowned them all together,

00:47:21--> 00:48:06

and mentioned that wood and Sulaiman when they judged concerning the field, what was this incident, this was when the sheep of a people overran it at night. So it is said that there were two neighbors, one was a shepherd, and the other was a farmer. So in the nighttime, the sheep of the shepherd ran into the field of the farmer. And you can imagine if sheep have, you know, if they've become loose in, in, in a, in a farm in a garden, what's going to happen to it, so they completely destroyed it. So what happened, these two people came for justice to that would sit down, and we were witness to their judgment, and we gave understanding of the case to slay man it is sent out,

00:48:07--> 00:48:50

though there is no rule that the owner of the field, the farmer should keep the sheep. Okay. And so the man already said, I'm sad that no the owner of the field should be given the sheep to benefit from until the shepherd tends to the field and restores it, and once the field that the farm has been restored, then the flock should be returned to him, and each owner should take back his property, what a beautiful decision. So, so, they matter and I sent him he was given understanding of this case, and sometimes it happens that you know, you are, you know, you face such questions or such situations, which are very difficult to comprehend, you don't understand how to solve that

00:48:50--> 00:49:33

issue. And then you talk to different people, you know, you you take their suggestions, and you make da and then eventually and 100 Allah, you come to a good decision. So remember, good for him, good understanding of a matter. This is from Allah subhanaw taala. Because it has said for for him now has today man, we gave understanding to Philemon earliest. So whenever you're struggling to understand something, ask Allah subhanaw taala that he will fahima soon a manner for him me that Oh Allah, you gave comprehension today, man, you give me comprehension as well. You give me good good decision and good judgment as well. And then it is said, well, Colin attina hookman where Elmer and

00:49:33--> 00:50:00

to each of them. We gave judgment and knowledge. And we subjected the mountains to exalt us along with Deadwood and also the birds. And we were doing that. So we see here that even though Sulaiman Ernie Salaam was the son, he was younger, and he Allah subhanaw taala gave him understanding in that situation. So sometimes it is possible that people who are younger than you are able to suggest what is better people who may have less life experience than you less knowledge

00:50:00--> 00:50:19

than you. And you might just not pay any attention to them, but it is worth listening to them. Because you never know, Allah subhanaw taala could have given them understanding of that point. So don't dismiss people just because they're younger, they know less, or they speak a different language. They don't do what you do, but rather be open,

00:50:20--> 00:50:21

learn from

00:50:23--> 00:51:09

learn from those who are around you listen to what people have to say. And then we see that though there is Sam, even though his understanding at this time was not the best, he is not condemned here. He's not condemned over here. Why? Because when a judge makes a judgement based on his knowledge and best ability, he is still rewarded, even if that judgment even if that ruling ended up to be wrong, but he is still rewarded for his sincerity and his effort. But if a person makes the right decision, the conclusion is good. Then remember there is double reward, double reward. And if a person is lazy, and with ignorance, they make a wrong ruling that they give a wrong ruling, then for that, of

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

course, is sin. So we have to be very, very careful. And we taught him the fashioning of coats of armor, to protect you from your enemy in battle for hell until Shakeel alone, so will you then be grateful? So we see that the prophets of Allah, especially though they're the same was mentioned over here, they weren't just given scripture and religious knowledge. There were also given worldly skills, which we benefit from till today. And then it is said that anthem Shakira, will you be grateful? Meaning, aren't you going to use the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given you in obedience to Allah, because that is sugar. And to slay man, we subjected the wind blowing forcefully

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

soprano law that were there his son was given mastery over iron. So iron was very soft for him, it was very pliable for him, he could mold it however he wanted. And so a man or a sudden wind was subjected for him. So one was given something solid and the other was given air. Amazing. And we see that wind can be very destructive, and it can also be very productive. So wind was in his control, proceeding by his command toward the land which we have blessed and we are ever of all things knowing, and of the devils were those who died for him and did work other than that, and we were of them a guardian soprano Allah, Allah subhanaw taala had given him control over the jinn also.

00:52:36--> 00:53:01

And mentioned a tube when he called to his Lord and Nima Sania boo, what under Hello, rahimian, indeed, adversity has touched me and you are the Most Merciful of the Merciful festa jibon, Allahu Fattah, Chef nama became in blue, so we responded to him and removed what afflicted him of adversity, a local club,

00:53:03--> 00:53:47

we see that every every person, you know, they suffer from some kind of adversity, some kind of personal adversity, which they experience either in their body, in their children, in their family situation, in their circumstances. hynny. And some conditions are such that a person is not evil, is not even able to diagnose it. And you go to doctor after doctor and they don't even know what's going on with you. And even if they know what is going on with you, they're not in a in a position to help you, because they don't know how to treat your condition. Or because circumstances don't allow. So any boom, when it touches you, then you call upon Allah subhanaw taala like you've already

00:53:47--> 00:54:31

surrounded. And you see a huge array of synapse adversity have prolonged for a very, very long time, it is said that he was he was suffering for 18 years. And when we are suffering from a pain from it for a very long time, then that that duration adds even more pain to the pain that exists. You know, what is the pain which is in your body? Then there is the pain that you don't know what's happening. And then there is the pain that you know it's been going on for so long. When is this going to end? So look at what you've already said. I'm said and Nima 70 of the room. were under our hammer rahimian and look at the word mess any you see must is what it's just a touch. It's just a touch a

00:54:31--> 00:54:59

human he said I was suffering in his body, in his family, in his money in his wealth, any in every aspect of his life he was suffering yet he called all of that suffering what just a must just take touch any it's all about perspective, right? That has a last panel title only given you difficulty or with that difficulty has also given you something else. So we need to remember that we should not

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

blow things out of proportion, we have a headache, and we pretend like we are going to die, any Subhanallah we're fasting, and we think like, we cannot do anything else. So keep things you know, see things in their proper size, don't blow things out of proportion. And always remember that in the morongo city you saw in numerosity, you saw with difficulties ease with the same difficulties and other ease. So yes, there is though, but there is also a blessing that Allah has given and whatever it is that you focus on, is what will grow. So look at how he describes his condition that adversity has just touched me it has not overtaken me, it has not destroyed me, it has not

00:55:46--> 00:56:34

overwhelmed me, because Allah you have also blessed me with so much any you can see the patients here. And the gratitude over here. What a hammer la Haney and look at how he's calling upon a law that Yeah, Allah, you are the Most Merciful of those who showed mercy. So we responded to him. And we removed what afflicted him of adversity. It had been so long, 18 years and Allah subhanaw taala removed all of that. And we give him back his family and the like they're off with them as Mercy from Us. And a reminder for the worshipers of Allah when they crawl, Leila RBD what is the lesson that Allah subhanaw taala tests His servants, however, that he wants to use alarm if I do? Well,

00:56:34--> 00:57:19

when we use alone, Allah is not questioned about what he does when he decides we are going to be questioned about what we do how we respond. So the first lesson is that it is up to Allah, it is his decision, it is His will, to test his servants, however, that he wants. And then when we are going through some difficulty, it is important that we must not hate ourselves, nor should we judge people who are going through difficulty, because you see a YouTuber, and he said, he was a prophet of Allah. He was an avid, he was a worshipper. He was a good servant, a modeled servant, yet Allah subhanaw taala tested him. So sometimes what happens is that when a person is going through trial,

00:57:19--> 00:58:05

they think that you know what, I must be very, very evil. I must be very, very bad. So God hates me. Or people wonder why does God hate me? Because in general, anyone we are going through some difficulty. We do think that this is because of our sins. And this is something that we have been taught. But it is it is true that trials affect us because of our sins. But those who worship aladar are the dean. And remember, for them, trials are not a punishment. trials are only a means of purification and growth and increase in reward and further submission to Allah, which raises them even higher in the sight of Allah soprano. Tada. So no matter what you're going through, don't hate

00:58:05--> 00:58:52

yourself. And don't let anyone tell you that God hates you. No, this is an opportunity for you to focus on your ibadah be like a you've already set up be an AA bid, and you will see how the trial the difficulty will be in your favor, not against you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, My unity law will be higher on usuba main who whoever Allah wishes good for he puts him to trial. In another Hadees we learned that when Allah loves a people, he tests them, so whoever is patient, then he will have patience, and whoever is impatient, then that is what he will have, meaning he will grow in whatever he responds with. So always respond with subject and focus on everybody. And then

00:58:52--> 00:59:36

you will see that the trial will not be a punishment for you, it will be a purification of growth, a means of increase for you in sha Allah, and mentioned is Mary and Idris, and will kiefel. All were of the patient could not mean a submarine. You see, this is sort of MBR and we learned that the people who are tested the most severely were who the prophets of Allah, and then the next best, and then the next best, so people are tested in proportion to the level of their faith. So we see how the prophets are described as savini. Those who are patient, what does that mean? That they endured hardship, they face trials, and through those trials, they were patient, and we admitted them into

00:59:36--> 01:00:00

our mercy or other Hala home field mattina. So you see, after difficulty, any when a person is in difficulty in a trial and their patient, then then what comes next Allahumma Allah's mercy which Allah subhana wa tada blesses His servants with in this life, but of course, the greatest Mercy is reserved for the hereafter. What are the

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

Hello homefield, Raj mattina, in the Home Ministry, he indeed they were of the righteous. And this is what we need to focus on that whether things are easy or they're tough. We have to focus on being amongst solid servants of Allah. Even if when big mistakes happen, and mentioned the man of the fish unit and he sent out when he went off in anger, and sometimes this happens and he we get frustrated with our our situation. But that frustration is not going to help us units. Our listener got frustrated, he went off in anger, and thought that we would not decree anything upon him. He didn't think that Allah would disapprove of this. And he called out within the darkness, meaning he was

01:00:43--> 01:01:35

trapped in the darkness of the fish of the sea of the night. There was no ray of light and he called out to Allah soprano tada and La ilaha illa Anta subhanak in the colon terminal Bali mean that there is no daily except to you. exalted, are you? Oh Allah. Indeed. I have been of the wrongdoers. So Yunus earlier set out, admitted his mistake. And he called upon Allah, He declared the perfection of Allah. And what happened? festa Giblin Allah who so we responded to him alonside Hammad, so when Ajay now humming along, and we saved him from distress, from worry from sadness worker that he can deal with meaning and thus do We save the believers. Remember, Allah saves the believers, any when

01:01:35--> 01:02:17

we are put in a test, it is not to destroy us. And when we are in a trial, it is not that we have been left to fend for ourselves, know Allah rescues his believing servants. So if we want a lot to rescue us, that we have to call upon Him, we have to seek his help. And there's so many beautiful lessons that we can learn from the prophets of Allah. So we see here the example of units or the SNM, where he made a mistake. And the predicament that he found himself in was a result of his own wrongdoing, any his own his own mistake. And sometimes this happens when we are going through a certain hardship and we reflect on ourselves and realize perhaps this is a result of my own

01:02:18--> 01:03:01

injustice. Perhaps I am the reason why I am suffering from this. I have no one else to blame except myself. And even in that condition, you know what, you are still worthy. Even if you have every reason to blame yourself to condemn yourself you are still worthy. You are still able to call upon Allah subhanaw taala when you have no one to blame but yourself. You can still call upon Allah like Yunus earlier sit down and look at what happened when Ajay now humming along. Allah saved him from distress worker that he can only move meaning this is for all believers, not just for UNICEF at his center. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, should I not tell you about something which of

01:03:01--> 01:03:49

a person says when stricken with distress or trial from the trials of this world and praise to Allah? Allah will remove it from him. It was said yes. And he said the door of the noon this neuron in another Hadees we learned the supplication off the noon. Many of us already set up when he supplicated while in the belly of the whale was La Ilaha. illa Anta soprano aka indicando me nobody mean So indeed, no Muslim men supplicates with it for anything ever, except that Allah responds to him. So when you find yourself in hum, any kind of hum any kind of worry, distress, sadness, call upon Allah with these words, La ilaha illa Anta super Hanukkah in me come to mean a wildly mean, and

01:03:49--> 01:04:03

the love will rescue you. Just as he rescued his servant, Yunus already, he said, Now look at the trial of zirconia his setup was a Korea and mentions a Korea when he called to his Lord, my Lord, do not leave me alone.

01:04:04--> 01:04:48

Have a look but he had no child. He said Yoda Don't leave me alone. While you are the best of inheritors any Yes, cool luminol a a fun way of power Judo because originally was a club, but as human beings, we we need that connection. We need that personal connection. We need those people we can call our own. You know, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to about Fatima de la Marne had the cheese of me. You know, she she is she is a biller to many, she is a part of me. We need that as human beings. So as a career as Sam said, your job Don't leave me alone. While you are the best of inheritors. I accepted it whenever you decide to accept it, but this is also my wish. So

01:04:48--> 01:04:59

we responded to him. And we gave to him yeah here and amended for him his wife. Indeed, they used to hasten to good deeds. This drove hard

01:05:00--> 01:05:08

worshiping Allah, and they would supplicate us in hope and fear. And they were to us humbly submissive,

01:05:09--> 01:05:41

and mentioned the one who guarded her chastity. So this shows us that if we want our daughters to be accepted, then we have to do the same thing that we have to have hope, we have to have fear of a love fear of love means that we refrain from anything that Allah subhanaw taala does not approve of. So we should take a look at our lives and see, is there anything Halong that I am doing, which has become a reason for me being deprived of the risk of good provision, and then also excel in doing good deeds? You said your own official hire,

01:05:42--> 01:06:28

and mentioned the one who guarded her chest to tea, this was muddy, um, so we blew into her garment, through our Angel debris, and we made her and her son is signed for the world's Indeed, this your religion is one religion, and I am your Lord. So worship Me, all of the prophets had the same religion, what religion of worshipping only Allah, and I am your rub rub of all of you, so worship only Allah. So we see that all of the prophets faced a different kind of tribulation, a different shade of trial and test in this life. And look at how Allah subhanaw taala brought them relief, and yet, they divided their affair among themselves, but all to us will return. So whoever does

01:06:28--> 01:07:11

righteous deeds, while he is a believer, no denial will there be for his effort, and indeed, we have it, our recorders, everything is being recorded. So this is what we need to focus on effort, that is what will be appreciated, and there is prohibitionist upon the people of a city, which we have destroyed, that they will ever return. Meaning once a person has left this world, they're not coming back, until when the dam of yet jujin damage has been opened. This is meaning the return will only be close will be on the Day of Judgment. And when will the Day of Judgment happen when the signs of the hour will be fulfilled. And of them is the release of yet jujin juge and they from every

01:07:11--> 01:08:00

elevation will descend. Remember your judgment dude are a people they are from the children of Adam, and they are not presently free on Earth, because little codename put them behind the barrier, but they will emerge at the time, when Allah subhanaw taala will decide close to the Day of Judgment. And when they will emerge, they will be many, many in number, so many that people will not even try to fight them and they will take over the earth, meaning they will destroy all you know, sources of food, all trees, all our water sources also. And we see that the Muslims at the time will retreat to a mountain in a cave they will hide there with reciting his salah and they will beg Allah subhanaw

01:08:00--> 01:08:46

taala and Allah subhanaw taala will cause some insects some creature to infect their necks, and they will all die meaning yet due to my judge will all die like the death of a single soul. And then soon after that the day of judgment will happen will cataldo Belvoir will help. And when the true promise has approached, then suddenly the eyes of those who disbelieved will be staring in horror, while they say oh woe to us. We had been unmindful of this rather we were wrongdoers. Indeed, you meaning you or who deny and what you worship other than Allah or the fire would have held, you will be coming to enter it had these false deities been actual gods, they would not have come to it, but all

01:08:46--> 01:09:30

are eternal they're in for them. They're in his heavy sign. And they they're in will not here. It's so noisy and Hellfire, their own screams and shouts will be so loud they will not be able to hear anything. So we see here that in hell, both the wish the cane, the the people who are associated partners with Allah and the beings that they worship besides Allah, both will be in Hell, I mean, the idols that they worship. So then the people of muckety muck that Oh, he says worship besides Allah, are you saying that he will also be in there, it is said Indeed, those for whom the best reward has proceeded from us. They are from it far removed. They will not hear it sound while they

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

are in that which their souls desire abiding eternally liahona woman Fazal aka bomb, they will not be grieved by the greatest terror and that will be when the resurrection will occur. As people will be rising further from their graves, Allah subhanaw taala will grant His righteous servants calmness at that time, or it is the time when the people of hell will be taken into hell, or the time when hell will be closed on the or the time when death will be slow.

01:10:00--> 01:10:46

at all of these times, Allah subhanaw taala will grant them security, what are the lacava Wilma iica and the angels will meet them, welcoming them from every direction accompanying them saying how they will come on lady quantum to what I do and this is your day, which you have been promised. So those who do good here will be welcomed there. The day when we will fold the heaven, like the folding of a written sheet for the records soprano law right now, this guy is so vast, expanded, and on the Day of Judgment, all of this will be wrapped up like a squirrel is wrapped up. As we began the first creation, we will repeat it that is a promise binding upon us. Indeed, we will do it. And We have

01:10:46--> 01:11:09

certainly written in the book, meaning in zooboo, after the previous mentioned that the land of Paradise is inherited by my righteous servants, and this is the land that we should be seeking the land of Paradise in nifi had Ella Bella Han leucovorin RBD. And indeed in this Koran is a notification for worshipping people.

01:11:10--> 01:11:56

For those who worship Allah, in this Quran is a notification. Meaning if you want to worship Allah and you want to continue to worship Allah, then you have to keep listening to the Quran. You have to keep taking the reminders from the Quran. Allah Allah said NACA Mata Leela el amin, and we have not sent to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, except as a mercy to the worlds and we see that many people are benefiting from his mercy today. And in the Hereafter, people will benefit from his mercy endlessly because he was sent as a mercy, but it is only those who believe in him. So the La Jolla sentiment follow Him who will benefit from his mercy. Remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

01:11:56--> 01:12:40

wa sallam was sent to save people, not to condemn them to help. He was sent to rescue people from him, so that people believe in Him and follow Him. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whenever he was asked to invoke, you know, pray against a certain people, he would say I was not sent as a Laron as someone who curses were in them or is to Ramadan, I will send as a mercy as a gift in in another Hadees. We learn more that as a gift. And this is the reason why, as long as he was as long as he was present amongst the people of Makkah, the people of Macau were not even punished. It was only after he left, that the punishment was sent upon them in the form of different

01:12:40--> 01:13:23

battles. And then we see that on the Day of Judgment also, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will intercede for people, we learned shofar it Leonid caballo at min Almighty my intercession will also be for those who commit major sins among the people of my nation. Say, it is only revealed to me that your God is but one God, so will you be Muslims in submission to him? But if they turn away, then say, I have announced to all of you equally My message is for all and I know not whether near or far is that which you are promised meaning the day of judgment? Indeed, he knows what is declared of speech, and he knows what you conceal. And I know not, perhaps is a trial for you, and you are

01:13:23--> 01:13:52

given enjoyment for a time, caught on become will help. The Prophet has said My Lord, judge between us in truth, what a man and our Lord is the Most Merciful and Mustang, the one who's helping Assad or allow my Tesla foon against that which you describe. So all the false accusations that other people have maka hurled at him sallallahu wasallam all that he suffered because of them. Look at this beautiful response that he was taught that this is what you should say

01:13:53--> 01:14:48

sudo to hedge Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Yeah, uh, you Hannah suta Pura back home in Nazareth. Assa t Shea on our alim. All Mankind, fear your Lord. Indeed, the convulsion of the final hour is a terrible thing. Yes, the day of judgment will have isn't zenna an earthquake, such an earthquake that will cause even those who are buried in the depths of the earth to come out. And we've learned in the Quran that the earth will throw out its burdens, meaning everything that is hidden inside the earth will come out what it will kobudo birth unit, so imagine this Zelda that will cause the earth to turn inside out. It is shaped when our alim it is a terrible thing. It is real. It is coming. On

01:14:48--> 01:14:59

the day you see it. Every nursing mother will be distracted from that child. She was Nursing at that moment, and every pregnant woman will abort her pregnancy.

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

And you will see the people appearing intoxicated while they're not intoxicated. But the punishment of Allah is severe, and other people is He Who disputes about Allah without knowledge and follows every rebellious devil. This is how people go astray. It begins with arguing arrogantly without any evidence without any knowledge, arguing about Allah subhanaw taala Why did Allah say this? Why did Allah create this? Why did Allah make this any this kind of Gitane about Allah without any knowledge, this is a few title Gita which doesn't help a person at all. It only makes them be arrogant, and it only turns them further away from guidance. So first we see there is ignorance. And

01:15:47--> 01:16:35

then he attempts to quantify upon muddied, he follows every rebellious devil, meaning there is a following of desires. So such a person is clearly under the influence of shaytaan quotevalet it has been decreed for every devil that whoever turns to him, he will misguide him, and will lead him to the punishment of the Blaze, or people, if you should be in any doubt about the resurrection, then consider that indeed, we created you from dust, then from a sperm drop, then from a clinging clot, and then from a lump of flesh formed an unformed, subprime Allah, Allah is informing you of this, why, that we may show you and we settle you in the wounds whom and we settle in the wounds, whom we

01:16:35--> 01:17:23

will first specify term, then we bring you out as a child, and then we develop you, that you may reach your time of maturity. And among you is He who is taken in young death while still a child. And among you is He who has returned to the most decrepit old age that he knows, after once having knowledge, nothing at all. And you see the earth barren, but when we sat down upon it rain, it quivers and swells and grows something of every beautiful kind. So two proofs of resurrection are given over here, how people are born, and then how the earth is revived to life. So if Allah subhanaw taala, can create human beings from something so tiny, something so insignificant, in a

01:17:23--> 01:18:07

place that is so hidden, that even a woman does not know what is going on inside of her body. And if Allah subhanaw taala can do this, that he can alter resurrect people, that he could be anila who will have that is because Allah is the truth, and because he gives life to the dead, and because he is over all things competent, and that the hour is coming, no doubt about it, and that Allah will resurrect those in the graves, this is happening. And all the people is He Who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening book from him. And he there is no evidence, there is no revealed scripture, there is no sound sound judgment. So all of his argument basically is

01:18:07--> 01:18:50

based on what on desire on whims on whatever just came to mind. twisting his neck in arrogance to mislead people from the way of Allah, for him in the world is disgrace. And we will make him taste on the Day of Resurrection, the punishment of the burning fire. While it is said that is for what your hands have put forth, and because Allah is not ever unjust to his servants. So it is important that we remain humble, that when we see the truth, when we learn something from the Quran, especially when something is based on revealed knowledge that we don't stand arrogantly against it, we should be humble there, we should accept it. And yes, we will have questions. But remember,

01:18:50--> 01:19:32

questions should always come from a place of respect. And from a place of humility, humility, this is very, very important. The problem is that because we have discovered a few things, and we have learned about a few things, we have started to think so highly of ourselves, that we think we have the solution to every problem and we can protect ourselves from every danger. And then, and then our current situation shows us that really, we are nothing, and it's best for us if we stay humble, and we don't claim that we know everything. So we whenever we have questions about the Hereafter, about the origin of the creation, about how Allah subhanaw taala created human beings, any question that

01:19:32--> 01:19:59

we have, always ask with other with respect, not with arrogance, and ask with humility. Remind yourself that Allah subhanaw taala is greater. I am not he knows, I don't know. And it is necessary that we believe in the unseen that we believe in a lab. And if you think about it, how strong is our belief in the unseen these days, that even though we cannot see the virus with our own eyes,

01:20:00--> 01:20:35

So careful before we touch anything, before we step outside the house, we're extra careful, because we know that it exists even though we haven't seen it with our own eyes. So Pamela, so the, you know, if someone reliable tells you about someone believable, someone who is true, tells you about something, you believe in it, even if you haven't seen it with your own eyes. And the prophets of Allah were reliable, that were honest, they've never spoken, untrue statement. So we must have imagined in the unseen belief in the unseen

01:20:36--> 01:21:25

woman a nasty my yard? Will the law allow health and other people is He who worships Allah on an edge? How, if he is touched by good, he is reassured by it. But if he is struck by trial, he turns on his face sopran Allah, you see, when a person has a man when a person believes they're certainly tested, why, so that a person knows where they stand, and then they can strengthen themselves? You see, when a when you exercise a muscle, you don't exercise it in order to break it, right? You exercise it with the intention to strengthen it. Yes, the process is painful, but it is for a good reason. And people who don't exercise their muscles properly, any who are not exercising correctly,

01:21:25--> 01:22:13

then yes, they cause damage to their own bodies, right. So this is why it is important that when we first start exercising, we get trained, right? We do it with a trainer, someone who can teach us. So just like that, when we're going through trials in life, it is necessary that we take lesson from the Quran and Sunnah so that we don't snap, we don't break. So remember, we will be tested in regards to our faith. But what is being condemned over here is that this person is worshiping Allah on an edge meaning just about to fall. So if he's touched by good, if we receive certain blessings, he stays on Islam, but then the moment there is some hardship he falls off of the cliff. So we learn

01:22:13--> 01:22:47

in a Hadees, that among that, this ayah was revealed about a man who used to come to Medina. And if he is sorry, that this ayah was revealed about people who would come to Medina, meaning to embrace Islam, and then after embracing Islam, if, you know, they had a son, or his or their animals have children, etc, meaning they increased in their wealth and their prosperity, they would say this religion is really good. But if they did not increase in worldly terms, instead they suffered, they would say this religion is bad.

01:22:48--> 01:23:26

So we learn another Hadith that once a man came to Medina, and he accepted Islam, he gave his way out to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his pledge of allegiance. And then this man felt really ill. And this has happened with many people, even Brunello de la hora, who fell ill in Medina when he first arrived. So this man, he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said, cancel my oath, I don't want to be a Muslim anymore. So proud Allah, and he he blamed Islam for his illness. And this is what some people think that the or this is how some people behave with Allah subhanaw taala. As long as you know, their their hours are being answered in the way that they want.

01:23:26--> 01:24:07

They're very good, very nice, as long as their wishes are being fulfilled, there, they will be obedient, they will do righteous things. But as soon as they're hit by a difficulty, they fail a test. It's like I am doomed. Everything is ruined. Islam is horrible. Allah hates me. Allah doesn't like me, jumping to such horrible conclusions. Remember, problems are a part of life. So don't blame Allah. Don't blame the religion. Don't blame the Quran for the difficulties and problems in your life. These problems are here for a reason. So learn from them. He invokes instead of Allah, that which neither harms him nor benefits him, that he co who alone Allah will buried. That is what is

01:24:07--> 01:24:37

the extreme error because in some people turn away from Islam, and they start worshipping other gods, they start worshipping other beings instead of Allah subhanaw taala. So this shift is extreme error. He invokes one whose harm is closer than his benefit, how wretched the protector and how wretched the associate, so remember, there is no equivalent to Allah, no equivalent whatsoever. If a person turns away from Allah, there is nothing at all. Nothing at all. That can give him what Allah subhanaw taala could give him

01:24:38--> 01:24:59

in the law you the hero Latina Amano, where I'm you know, slowly had Jeannette integrity mentality, and how, Indeed, Allah who will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow Indeed Allah does what he intends. So those who are patient, those who are steadfast, Allah will not waste their effort. Whoever should think

01:25:00--> 01:25:12

Allah will not support his messenger in this world and the hereafter let him extend a rope to the ceiling, then cut off his breath and let him see will his effort remove that which enrages him?

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

So this idea can be understood in a number of ways. One interpretation is that if a person thinks that Allah subhanaw taala will not help him, then Okay, in your anger and in your frustration, go and even kill yourself, will that help your situation? No, it won't. Will it save you from your predicament? No, it won't, it's only going to further increase your problem. So the way of dealing with life's challenges is not with anger and rage. It is with acceptance and patience, because it is such people who survive. You see some people, they go to the gym once and then they get so tired, they get angry with the instructor, and they say, you know what, they were torturing me, I'm never

01:25:59--> 01:26:40

going to go back again. Okay, don't go back again, who's going to suffer, you will suffer. You know, the instructor is not there to torture you. Their goal is they don't find pleasure by making you work hard. No, they're there to help you. And, and to build you to make you stronger, to make you healthier. So if you if you don't like it, that's your problem. And only you are going to suffer. So it is very important that we take life's challenges in the in the same way as well. don't resent them. Don't be upset and annoyed and irritated all the time. That now it's this problem. And now it's that problem. And now this and now that no accept, and be patient, and see how of us punked out

01:26:40--> 01:27:21

his help will come and you will conquer one thing after the other until in sha Allah, He will enter agenda and that is our goal. And thus have we sent the Quran down as verses of clear evidence. And because Allah guides whom He intends, Indeed, those who have believed, and those who are Jews and the sabians of the Christians and the major ones and those who are associated with Allah, Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, Allah is over all things witness. Do you not see that to Allah prostrates whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth, and the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, the moving creatures, and many of the people, soprano

01:27:21--> 01:28:06

love, any such big things, the sun, moon, mountains, trees, they're all prostrating to Allah. They're submissive before Allah, they're doing whatever less private Allah has commanded them to do, and what are we doing? But upon many, the punishment has been justified, who those who refuse to make such that to Allah and he whom Allah humiliates. For him, there is no bestower of honor. Why may you hit a lair who, family who may macrame? Indeed, Allah does, what he will. So we see here that the sun, the moon, the stars, mountains, trees are mentioned here. Why because a lot of times people worship these these creatures. So it is mentioned here that any How can they be God when

01:28:06--> 01:28:48

Allah is the one who created them, He is the one who subjected them and they all prostrate to Allah. So remember, such that is only for Allah, not for anything else. So we should not bow down to any human. Sometimes in certain cultures, you know, we bow people bow down and in respect to their elders, this is also incorrect, because such there is only for Allah. And we learned that when a person prostrates to Allah, then this is something that Allah loves. The Prophet sallallahu already said was asked about the deeds which are most beloved to Allah. And he said, are Laika because it sujood make frequent prostrations before Allah, why, because you will not make a single such that,

01:28:49--> 01:29:33

without it, raising you a degree because of it, and removing a sin from you because of it. And remember, when a person has said that, you do such the on, on seven bones, on your forehead, nose, your your two hands, your knees and your feet, right. So these parts of the body are touching the earth when you make such them. And these parts of the body will not be consumed by the fire of hell. Meaning even if a person enters hell, because of some other crimes would or Yeah, the beloved if a person does enter hell because of some other crimes, these parts of their body will not be burned by the fire of health. And it is because of these parts of the body, that they will be recognized in

01:29:33--> 01:29:59

hell, and so they will be taken out by the intercession of the believers. These are two adversaries who have disputed over their Lord, meaning there are some people who surrender who submit and then there are other people who stand arrogantly who become angry with Allah, and who go on denying Allah. And there is a huge difference, but those who disbelieved will have cut out for them garments of fire, pull

01:30:00--> 01:30:45

Upon their heads will be scalding water by which is melted that within their bellies and their skins, stuff little clothing of fire is mentioned over here, just as fire wraps a person and becomes a person's identity. Certain people go around this world, identifying themselves, you know very proudly saying I don't believe in God I reject God I reject Islam any it's their identity. And remember the punishment for sin is similar to the sin itself. So they will have clothing a fire in hell. And it is also mentioned Heidi's about the shoes of fire in hell. And scalding water will be poured over their heads. So it will go down their heads burning through their heads down their

01:30:45--> 01:31:03

bodies, by which is melted that within their bellies and their skins that will come out of their feet. And for striking them are masons of iron, every time they want to get out of hell from anguish, they will be returned to it, and it will be said taste the punishment of the burning fire.

01:31:04--> 01:31:43

In contrast, Indeed, Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow, they will be adorned, they're in with bracelets of gold and Pearl. And their garments they are in will be silk, what a contrast. And you see here, out of all the blessings of Jenna bracelets of gold and Pearl are mentioned, Pearl bracelets are even mentioned in the Quran, not just gold, and other places we also learned about silver. So we learn that on the Day of Judgment, the jewelry of the believer will reach as far as his widow reaches

01:31:45--> 01:32:28

any this shows us that if you want to wear jewelry and paradise, especially bracelets, there are some people who really like jewelry, if you like that, then make sure you make whoodle frequently and properly, properly. Meaning you make sure that you rub the places that are supposed to be washed sometimes you know women become very extra careful when they have makeup on their faces. So they will not make will do the entire day. Or they will just resort to making to mom that is not correct by the way their mom is only allowed one will do is not possible. So when you wash your face, make sure you rub properly. When you wash your arms, make sure you rug properly so that no no part gets

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

left dry. And then make it frequently also don't be lazy in that. Because the jewelry of the believer will reach as far as his widow reached in the world. And they had been guided in worldly life to good speech and what is a good speech law either in the law and to hold on. So they accepted it, they followed it, they they adopted it, and this is why they were guided to the path of the Praiseworthy. illa serapion. Hamid, this is the path that Allah likes the path that takes to Allah approval, the path of Allah. Indeed, those who have disbelieved and avert people from the way of Allah, and from almost either harem, which we made for the people equal or the resident there in,

01:33:13--> 01:33:53

and one from outside, meaning whether a person is a resident of Makkah, or has come from outside of Makkah, every Muslim has equal right to access must do that. And whoever intends a deed therein of deviation in religion or wrongdoing, we will make him taste of a painful punishment. So remember, committing the sin anywhere is wrong, but committing the sin within the huddle within animosity that how long it is worse. This is why there is greater punishment for that. So be very careful. And mentioned when we designated for Ibrahim the site of the house, say, do not associate anything with me and purify my house for those who perform to laugh and those who stand in prayer and those who

01:33:53--> 01:34:33

bow and prostrate surprise Allah, Allah subhanaw taala chose the place where the cargo was to be built. And look at the message that was given to Ibrahim at that time, don't commit * with me, meaning this house of Allah is only going to be built for what purpose for the worship of Allah alone, not for the worship of Hassan or Hussein or anybody else, this is only for Allah. And then this house has to be clean, clean from what clean from ship, meaning only Allah subhanaw taala should be worshipped over there, nobody else should be worshipped. And then this also means that this this house of Allah should be clean, meaning from physical uncleanliness also, we learned that

01:34:33--> 01:35:00

in Hadees, that the deeds of my people the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the deeds of my people good and bad were presented before me. And I found the removal of something objectionable from the road among their good deeds, and the sputum, meaning the spit, that a person leaves and buried exposed in the masjid, among their evil deeds are stuff that a lot so be very careful when you go to the masjid before you get it from any place. Look around you

01:35:00--> 01:35:22

yourself. Did you drop a tissue? Did you drop a few crumbs? Did you leave anything pick that up? Well as infinera Sybil henge and proclaim to the people the Hajj pilgrimage, they will come to you on foot and on every lean camel. They will come from every distant pass from far off places, and this is true. Ibrahim Renison I made that announcement so long ago.

01:35:25--> 01:36:09

Until today, people go for Hajj from distant far off places. Why go for Hajj? What is the benefit? What is the reason Leah shadowman Fei the home that they may witness benefits for themselves. And these benefits can only be witnessed, they can only be experienced when a person goes for hunt. This is why it's a life changing experience. And they mentioned the name of Allah, unknown days over what he has provided for them of sacrificial animals, so eat of them and feed the miserable and poor. So remember, the first 10 days of the hedger, these are the best days ever. And these are days of the kind of Allah they are of little a young adonia there are the best days of the world. And the best

01:36:09--> 01:36:49

and any good deed that is performed in them is beloved to Allah subhanaw taala. And this is why we have been advised to increase in delille takbeer, the Hamid to say la ilaha illAllah to say Allah Akbar and to say Alhamdulillah and you see at Hajj when people have gathered from different places all over the world, when they worship together. You know, being able to worship together brings about another feeling, being able to remember a lot together brings about a different feeling. So that feeling is necessary, it strengthens you, it grounds you then let them end their untidiness because over the course of the days of Hydra person does get untidy, there's so much travel back and

01:36:49--> 01:37:27

forth, and fulfill their vows and perform tawaf around the ancient house that has been commanded. And whoever honors the sacred ordinances of a law, meaning the rituals that Allah tada has assigned the places of worship that he has designated the times that he has chosen. So whoever respects the honors them, it is best for him in the sight of his Lord, and permitted to you are the grazing livestock except what is recited to you. So avoid the uncleanliness of idols and avoid false statement. Notice how Chinook is mentioned and lion is mentioned right after, and we think lying is no problem at all.

01:37:28--> 01:38:14

And you see, idols have been called unclean over here, avoid the uncleanliness of idols. Why? Because loving them, adoring them worshipping them is as unclean for the heart as some filth is when it touches your body. And he it dirties the heart inclining only to Allah, not associating anything with him. So stay away from schilke and he who associates with Allah, it is as though he had fallen from the sky and was snatched by the birds or the wind carried him down into a remote place, stuff that allow meaning, such a person is completely destroyed, there is no hope for him and just like that, if a person ends up on the day of gentlemen, having committed shift that he did not repent

01:38:14--> 01:38:14


01:38:16--> 01:38:59

then remember Allah does not forgive Schick. That is so and whoever honors the symbols of Allah remember the symbols of Allah we have to honor and the symbols of Allah what anything which is part of Deen anything that I that that is that that is a part of our religion, whether it is for example, a beard that a man keeps, as, as as a son now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a hijab that a woman wears the Kaaba, the masjid, the Quran, in all of these are symbols of Allah. Indeed, it is from the piety of hearts, these are rituals, but their outward performance any yet these are rituals. And this is these rituals are to be done with the piety of the heart, because remember,

01:39:00--> 01:39:44

just focusing on the external is not enough. So for example, if a person wears a hijab, but then in the heart is not taqwa, then any it's not enough, you have to join the external with the internal, any focus on the external aspect of ibadah. And also bring about the color in your heart. For you, the animals marked for sacrifice are benefits for a specified term, then their place of sacrifice is at the ancient house, being there to be slaughtered at Amina, and for all people we have appointed a right that they may mention the name of Allah over what he has provided for them of sacrificial animals, meaning even the previous nations were required to slaughter their animals and mentioned

01:39:44--> 01:39:59

the name of Allah upon them, for your God is one God. So to him submit, and give good tidings to the humble web. ashida mohabbatein. Who are they? There are those who want to Allah is mentioned their hearts are fearful

01:40:00--> 01:40:03

Their hearts move They tremble and to the patient

01:40:05--> 01:40:44

and the patient over what has afflicted them, meaning their patient in difficulty, and the establishes of prayer, the established Salah, and those who spend from what We have provided them. This is a sign of being a humble person. A humble person is not someone who looks down. humble person is not someone who speaks very softly. A truly humble person is one who has humility in their heart. And because of that one allies mentioned, their heart trembles because of that they're a patient in difficulty, because of their humility. They establish prayer, they're not arrogant, they're not stubborn and lazy. And then because of their humility, they share the good that Allah

01:40:44--> 01:41:23

has given them with others, and the camels and cattle, we have appointed for you as among the symbols of Allah, because these are to be slaughtered in the name of Allah, especially at the time of how much for you there is good, so mentioned the name of Allah upon them when lined up for sacrifice, because camels are so huge that you cannot lay a camel down in order to slaughter it. So a camel has to be, you know, standing in a certain way. And when they are lifeless, other sides, then eat from them, and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have we subjected them to you that you may be grateful. So we see here, that the way of slaughtering these animals has been mentioned. And

01:41:23--> 01:42:04

what is being repeated again, is the fact that the name of a lot should be mentioned. And then secondly, once you have all of this meat, then don't just worry about yourself, that what what you know you're going to grill and what you're going to freeze and what you're going to enjoy later and what you're going to enjoy right now, no, enjoy it yourself. But then also share it with others. This is all part of sugar. Their meat will not reach a lot when you slaughter an animal. The meat doesn't reach a law, nor will their blood. But what reaches him is piety from you. That is what we need to focus on. Yes, we select the best animal. Yes, we slaughtered at the right time. Yes, we

01:42:04--> 01:42:49

slaughter in the best way we take the name of Allah. All of that is important. But remember, a ritual is not just an empty ritual. It has to be filled with the piety with the taqwa of Allah. And that is what makes it and that is what puts life in that act of worship. That is what makes it acceptable to Allah soprano Tada. So when a person does something with the taqwa of Allah, then remember the reward is preserved with Allah soprano Tada. We learned about ritual sacrifice that were among the Hanukkah from the hadoo lacquer in the Arabic that as for your ritual slaughter, it is preserved for you, it is stored for you with your Lord, meaning its reward is saved with Allah

01:42:49--> 01:43:32

for you. Thus have we subjected them to you, that you may glorify Allah for that to which he has guided you, and give good tidings to the doers of good Indeed, Allah defends those who have believed, Indeed Allah does not like everyone treacherous and ungrateful. Permission to fight has been given to those who are being fought. So here the Muslims were given permission to stand up for themselves and take revenge Now, why because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them victory. They are those who they are those who have been evicted from their homes without right only because they say Our Lord is Allah. They didn't commit any crime. There was no criminal

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

record, no murder, no theft, nothing. The only reason they settled up boonah law. And we're not that a lot checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished one as trees, churches, synagogues and mosques in which the name of Allah is mentioned. So why is it the Muslims are, were allowed at that time to fight the people of Makkah, because the power of the people of Makkah had to be broken, because in their transgression, they were, they were stopping at no limit. And so Allah subhanaw taala has given this permission to people to take revenge, and to Muslims especially why so that the oppression of the oppressors is broken, and Allah will surely support

01:44:13--> 01:44:58

those who support him when I am Soren Allah Humayun Soto, Allah does not need our help, he will help those who help him mean those who help his cause. Indeed, Allah is powerful lock away unit Aziz, he is powerful, exalted in mind, he can deal with his opponents himself, but he honors you by giving you a chance to support his the to see how loyal you are to him. And they are those who if we give them authority in the land, they will establish prayer and gives a cat and enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong. Any if Allah, Allah grants them freedom, this is what they will do, they will not become deceived by their freedom and power and to Allah belongs the outcome of all matters and

01:44:58--> 01:44:59

if they deny you

01:45:00--> 01:45:43

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so before them did the people have no and odd and some who would deny their profits, and the people of Ibrahim and the people of Lupe and the inhabitants of Medina and Moosa was denied. So I prolonged enjoyment for the disbelievers that I sees them, and how terrible was my reproach? And how many a city did we destroy while it was committing wrong, so it has now fallen into ruin, and how many and abandoned well, and how many a lofty palace, these structures are standing, but the inhabitants are gone. So have they not traveled through the earth and have hearts by which to reason for takuna home kulu boo Yong ki, Luna beha hearts by which to

01:45:43--> 01:46:30

reason and ears by which to hear. So having an ear functioning ear is not enough. It is to listen to what is good and benefit from what is good. That is what makes IRS any beneficial for Indeed, it is not the eyes that are blinded, but blinded are the hearts which are within the chests. And they urge you to hasten the punishment, but Allah will never fail in his promise. And indeed, a day with your Lord is like 1000 years of those which you count, this is why we become impatient. And for how many a city did I prolonged enjoyment while it was committing wrong, then I seized it. And to me is the final destination. say oh people, I am only to you a clear water. So those who have believed and

01:46:30--> 01:47:17

then righteous deeds for them is forgiveness and noble provision. They did noble deeds, they will be served in a noble honorable way. But the ones who strove against our verses seeking to cause failure, those are the companions of hellfire. And now an example of that is mentioned. And we did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke, or recited the Quran shavon threw into it, meaning some kind of misunderstanding, meaning shavon tried his best to interfere with the speech of the recitation of the Prophet and to disturb it, but Allah abolishes that which a pawn throws in then Allah makes precise his verses, meaning whatever shape on try to insert was

01:47:17--> 01:48:00

abolished, and Allah is Knowing and wise. So therefore, whatever the prophets conveyed, is pure from any adulteration, because a lot eliminated the work of shaitan. That is, but then why did Allah allow shaitan to, you know, interfere in the first place? That is, so he may make, which I found throws in a trial for those within whose hearts as disease and those heart of heart and indeed the wrongdoers are in extreme dissension. And so those who are given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord and therefore believe in it, and their hearts humbly submit to it. And indeed, it and indeed is Allah the guide of those who have believed to a straight path, despite the crafts

01:48:00--> 01:48:43

of shape on so we see that there are three types of hearts There are three types of people. The first is Alinea, feel Kuru be muddled those in whose hearts as a disease in which is a weakness. So faith is not complete. So shavon manages to affect such hearts. So when such people hear satanic suggestions, they hear satanic speech, they get deeply affected by it, and it becomes a trial for them. The second is, well, casia eukanuba home those whose hearts are hard, who don't get affected by any warning, no advice. And so they don't understand. They fail to comprehend the words of Allah and His messenger. So when they hear satanic suggestions, satanic words, they easily get influenced

01:48:43--> 01:49:29

because those satanic words only confirm their biases. And then third is those of knowledge. Those whose hearts are soft and tender, humble, believing. And so when chant thought when Shivani words, when satanic suggestions, and satanic speech is going around, they don't get affected. In fact, they actually become even more firm in their faith. The words through which a pawn misleads people become a means of further strengthening them in faith. Why? Because now they're able to see the truth even more clearly. You see, every now and then we hear some strange things, you know, people will raise controversies about the Prophet sallallahu Ortiz and about the Koran. So we see these responses and

01:49:29--> 01:49:59

people some people immediately get affected. So they will even go to the point of leaving Islam. Then there are other people who for them, such articles and such, you know, things are like fire for them, you know, so they, they they get so happy, they they get further into their disbelief, and they use that to lead other people astray as well. And then the people of Emad people have knowledge, they only become more firm in their email. through such trials. Millis panel data makers, among among them

01:50:00--> 01:50:42

But those who disbelieve will not cease to be in doubt of it, until the hour comes upon them unexpectedly, or their comes to them the punishment of a Baron de all sovereignty that day is for Allah, He will judge between them, so they, so they who have believed, and then righteous deeds will be in the Gardens of Pleasure. And they who disbelieved and denied our Signs for those, there will be a humiliating punishment, and those who emigrated for the cause of Allah, and then were killed or died, alone will surely provide for them a good provision, so don't pity them. And indeed, it is Allah who is the best of providers, He will surely cause them to enter an entrance with which they

01:50:42--> 01:51:26

will be pleased. And indeed, Allah is Knowing and forbearing that is so and whoever responds to injustice with the equivalent of that with which he was harmed and then is tyrannized a load surely aid him Leon Solana Hola, Indeed Allah is pardoning and forgiving. So this is Allah has promised that he certainly helps the oppressed. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu already said and warned us against the prayer of the oppressed. He said fear the prayer of the oppressed for it is lifted up on clouds. And Allah says, By my honor, and might, I will surely help him, even if it is after some time. So Liam surana, Allah, Allah will help him. And this I also makes clear that the

01:51:26--> 01:52:07

person who takes revenge only as much as the wrong that wasn't up to him, then he is not the aggressor. He's not doing the law on him the aggressor is the one who initiates the oppression and abuse, whether it is an insult, or it is, you know, a punch or anything like that. We don't know how to use that when two people revile each other, meaning they hurl verbal abuses at each other, the responsibility for what they say, rests on the first to speak, as long as the one who wronged does not become excessive. So be very careful, don't initiate a loan. That is because Allah causes the knight to enter the day and causes the day to enter the night and because Allah is hearing and

01:52:07--> 01:52:49

seeing, he knows what people have done, he hears them and and he is fully able to change the circumstances of people. That is because Allah is the truth. How was I able to do that because he is allowed is the truth. And that which they call upon other than Him is all falsehood. And because Allah is the Most High, the grand, do you not see that Allah has sent down rain from the sky and the earth becomes green? Look at how Allah changes things. Indeed, Allah is subtle and acquainted, To Him belongs what isn't the heavens and what is on the earth? And indeed, Allah is the free of need the Praiseworthy, do you not see that Allah has subjected to you, whatever is on the earth, and the

01:52:49--> 01:53:31

ships which run through the sea by his command, and he restrains the sky from falling upon the earth unless by his permission, Indeed Allah to the people love our Ufa, Lehane he is surely kind and merciful. Never forget that. And he is the one who gave you life, then he causes you to die, and then he will again give you a life indeed, mankind is ungrateful. For every religion, we have appointed rights which they perform. So each oma was given certain rituals. So all Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam let the disbelievers not contend with you over the matter, but invite them to your Lord because some people are very quick to criticize, you know, different rituals in

01:53:31--> 01:54:14

Islam. So, every religion has their own rituals. Indeed, you are upon straight guidance. And if they dispute with you then say, Allah who are lemuel Bhima Dharma loon Allah is most knowing of what you do. This is how you respond to people who stubbornly argue with you, not for the truth, but to insult you. Just remind them, Allah knows what you're doing. Allah will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which we used to differ. Do you not know that Allah knows what is in the heavens and the earth? Do you not know that Allah knows what is in the sky and earth? Indeed, that is in a record, Allah knows everything and everything is recorded as well. Indeed, that

01:54:14--> 01:54:28

for Allah is easy, and they worship besides Allah, that for which he has not sent down authority, and that of which they have no knowledge, no evidence whatsoever, and there will not be for the wrongdoers any helper.

01:54:30--> 01:54:59

And when our Verses are recited to them as clear evidence is you recognize in the faces of those who disbelieve disapproval, they're visibly upset, irritated, annoyed. They're almost on the verge of assaulting those who recite to them our verses, they get so angry. Say, Then shall I inform you of what is worse than that? It is the fire which Allah has promised those who disbelieve and wretched as that is the destination or people An example is presented solely

01:55:00--> 01:55:45

Listen to it. So all of us are being asked to listen to this carefully. Indeed, those you invoke besides Allah, meaning those you think are very capable of helping you, you think that they respond better than Allah does. So this is why you ask them, and you depend on them and you expect from them, Do you realize what they are, they will never create as much as a fly, even if they gather together for that purpose. And this is not just the idols that people used to worship once upon a time or they worship today. This is even, you know, the science that we saw depend on any Yes, we have advanced a lot 100 a lab, but are we capable of making even a fly? Really, we're not.

01:55:46--> 01:56:32

They will never create a fly, even if they gather together for that purpose, realize the weakness of the creation before the Creator. And if the fly should steal away from them a tiny thing, they could not recover it from him. Because you see now what is modern shake, it is atheism it is denial of God. So you think so highly of yourself? Well, what is what what is it that you're even capable of doing? You cannot make a fly and if the fly takes something away from you, you can never recover it. You cannot even track a virus week or the pursuer and pursued. Why do people deny Allah? Why do people associate partners with Allah because Malka de la have Kaka de they have not appraised a law

01:56:32--> 01:57:18

with a true appraisal. Indeed, Allah is powerful and exalted in mind. This is the real problem that people don't understand who Allah is. They don't even know who Allah is. They think Allah is not able to help them or that Allah could not have created something so perfect, something so massive and huge. Do you know who Allah is? The reason why people deny Allah is because they don't know him. This is a real problem. And sometimes people get disappointed making dua to Allah and then they start turning towards you know, different things different beings, that perhaps they will answer perhaps they will help any What do you think about Allah that He doesn't like you, that his

01:57:18--> 01:57:56

treasures will will diminish if he gives something to you? Allah subhanaw taala gives to those whom he loves and those whom he does not love. You don't have to be likable because Allah is that our man or him? And why should you think in the first place that Allah doesn't like you? Because there is nothing more honorable near Allah than Dora. Remember that when you call upon Allah, you become honorable in the sight of Allah. Allah chooses from the angels, messengers, and from the people. Indeed Allah is hearing and seeing. So Allah chose gibreel among the angels and he chose Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam amongst human beings. In a hadith we learn that Allah examined the hearts of the

01:57:56--> 01:58:42

servants and found the heart of Muhammad Sallallahu where to send them to be the best. So he chose him and sent him with his message. He knows what is presently before them, and what will be after them and to Allah will be returned all matters. Yeah, and you're letting me know all you who have believed.

strive for Allah with the striving due to him, the striving that he deserves, who which the vehicle, he has chosen you what modularly considered him and Howard and he has not placed upon you in the religion, any difficulty. So Aren't you going to strive because Allah subhanaw taala has not created any difficulty in Islam. The difficulty is actually inside of us, we find certain things difficult because of our weakness or our laziness. Allah has not paid the religion difficult. Look at how many things are lost Panasonic has made easy for us. When a person is not able to make will do then to mom is an option. When a person is not not able to pray standing, then they can sit in prayer. When
