are other Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam are a lot of Sunil Karim will be shortly suddenly were Sidley, MD Washbrook data melissani of kuqali Allahumma de Colby was sadly Sani was through so he moto Colby Armenia a little bit I mean,

00:00:23--> 00:01:01

just number 19 suited for con. We're calling a lead in July or June Alico, Anna Lola on Zilla, Elena and Mila eager to Oh, Nola banner, la casa de stackable roofie unfussy him where I tell were to when Kabira and those who do not expect the meeting with us say, why we're not angels sent down to us? Or why do we not see our Lord, they have certainly become arrogant within themselves and become insolent with great insolence.

00:01:02--> 00:01:52

We see in this verse, that people who do not believe in the Hereafter, who do not even imagine or expect that they will one day meet Allah subhanaw taala such people demand that if God is there, then how can we do not see him? That if angels come down to the messenger, how come they don't come down to us and tell us that he is the Messenger of Allah, or in fact, tell us directly what is being conveyed to us through the messenger. So it is made clear here, that such people do not make such demands out of a genuine need or reason. They're actually demonstrating great pride. They're being very audacious and bold. They're not asking this from a place of genuine curiosity, but from a place

00:01:52--> 00:02:43

of arrogance, from a place of denial and contempt. Yo, yo, Onan mela eco de la Bushra. Yo ma la mujer de mein way ocho, Luna Hadler Maha doula, the day they see the angels, no good tidings will there be that day for the criminals? And the angels will say, prevented? And in accessible, meaning Yes, one day they will see the angels. But that day is not going to be a day of good news. It's not going to be sick, it's not going to be said that Oh, finally, you see the angels, rather, the angels will bring upon them punishment and Wrath of Allah. And so they will be told, prevented and in accessible, meaning you can no longer do what you have been doing now Your time is up, and that

00:02:43--> 00:03:28

Allah subhanaw taala. His favor and his mercy are now prohibited upon you. And your entry into paradise is impossible, headed on my doula. And remember that this is going to be the date of death. Because a person sees the angels on the day of death when the angels come to take their soul. Also on the Day of Resurrection when people will be brought back to life and in the great gathering in the Heschel and then forever onwards. But those people who live with such denial and arrogance, than when they will see the angels, the angels will not bring them good news, they will bring them punishment. And so they will be hedged on Maha Shula meaning that now they will be caught, they will

00:03:28--> 00:04:19

have lost all their freedom and they will be unable to escape what gardena a llama I'm Illumina Amylin federal now who have a mensual Ah, and we will regard what they have done off deeds, and we will make them as dust dispersed, meaning whatever great things that they accomplished in the world. Whatever progress they made, however advanced they became all of their achievements, all of their accomplishments will be blown away turned into dust, meaning none of that is going to benefit them on the Day of Judgment. The thing is, that this world and everything in it belongs to Allah subhanaw taala, including us and whatever there is at our disposal. So if a person works in this life without

00:04:19--> 00:05:00

a man without following the way that Allah subhanaw taala approves off, then such work will be worthless on the Day of Judgment. Think about it. If you study the wrong book for an exam. If you do not follow the rules of the game, then you're dismissed, your efforts will not bring any benefit. So are the lab and MOBOTIX said that these are deeds which are done for other than Allah, meaning such deeds will be blown away, they will be turned into dust that is dispersed Mujahid said that these are deeds that will not be honored by acceptance, meaning these are actions

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

Allah subhanaw taala will not accept. And these are not just people who live in disbelief and who associate partners with Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us, he said, I know other people from my oma, who will come on the Day of Judgment with good deeds like that of the mountain of Li Hama, meaning huge, massive collections of good deeds. But Allah will turn them into scattered dust. He said, beware, they are your brothers of your skin, meaning they're human like you, they look like you. They take a portion of the night for worship as you do. But there are people who when they are alone, they indulge in the forbidden things, meaning they commit forbidden

00:05:48--> 00:06:35

deeds in privacy, in privacy, they are worse than they are in front of you. Meaning they only fear you, they don't actually fear Allah, when they do something good. It is just to impress people, it is not to seek the approval of Allah and this is why there is such you know, to face sadness that in front of people so pious and righteous, but in privacy, so horrible, may Allah subhanaw taala protect us. So such deeds will be blown away on the Day of Judgment, they will be rendered worthless. It is said the companions of Paradise that day, are in a better settlement, and better resting place what I said no mipela and you see mckaela is the place or time of a Lula and play Lula

00:06:36--> 00:07:19

is to take a nap, meaning during the day. So we see that the people in paradise will take a Lula Why, why will they take a nap? because why not? Why? Why do you take a nap on the day? Right? It's it's not because you are very sleepy or you're very tired. But this is just something that we enjoy doing when we are relaxed. So just like that, people in paradise will take a nap. And it is actually a Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to take a short nap in the afternoon. And I saw the Allahu anhu said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would visit his house meaning the house of unece, that Alain la de la noir and who used to spread a leather mat for him.

00:07:20--> 00:08:03

And he used to take a midday nap on that lead on that mat, meaning even if he was not at home, he was somewhere else. If it was time for a nap, he would take a nap. But remember that a nap clay nullah is actually a very short nap. It is not that a person is now sleeping during the day for hours and hours. So we see that the London Miss Rue de la de la hora and who when he saw that the shadows shifted from west to east, meaning the you know, meaning that people were now reaching the end of the day. It was original de la Mourinho, he would say to the people who were still taking a nap that get up any time spent after this is for shapen. So any person that he passed by who was

00:08:03--> 00:08:46

still sleeping, he would wake them up. So it is good to take a nap in the in the afternoon, but to remember that the snack should not be very, very long, because then it makes a person groggy and you know it can also cause headaches, even when a person is fasting is how can we have the law said that taking kulula is from the deeds of the people of goodness of a new height. And it strengthens the heart because you see when you're well rested, even if you've taken a short nap, any it It allows you to feel at ease so it strengthens the heart you're mentally you know more fresh and it gives power to pray in the night. Meaning you also find the physical strength to worship Allah soprano

00:08:46--> 00:09:34

Tada. So it is very important that especially in the month of Ramadan, we take a short nap in the afternoon. Not a very long one, but a short one insha Allah and mentioned the day when the heaven will split open with emerging clouds and the angels will be sent down in successive descent, meaning the sky will open up and then the angels will come forth surrounding from all around. So where will people escape to? Ullman. cuyama ebenen headcollar man, true sovereignty that day is for a man the Most Merciful subparallel law, only his judgment will prevail. The Day of Judgment is certainly very frightening. But the fact that the name of our man is mentioned in this context brings so much

00:09:34--> 00:10:00

comfort and hope that Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned his ultimate sovereignty and power over here with his name of our man, the extremely merciful, meaning whose mercy encompasses everything and 99 parts of his mercy are reserved for that day. Remember, Allah subhanaw taala is more merciful to his servants than they are to themselves. So to be worthy of His glory.

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

Mercy on the Day of Judgment, we have to do what pleases him right now. What can a young man lol caffeine Ric law, and it will be upon the disbelievers a difficult day. Meaning Allah is extremely merciful. But remember that those who deny that his mercy is not for them. In this world, His mercy is for all. But in the hereafter It is only for those who are worthy of it. And the day the wrongdoer will bite on his hands, why, out of regret out of anger, and we see that even in this life, when a person is extremely angry and regretful, they resort to self harm. So on the Day of Judgment, a person will bite at his own hands, what is the regret over he will say, Oh, I wish I had

00:10:46--> 00:11:31

taken with the messenger away. I wish I had accompanied the messenger, I had been on the path of the Prophet sallallahu early he was sending them, oh, Woe to me, I wish I had not taken that one as a friend, he led me away from the remembrance after it had come to me. So choose your friends carefully. Because we see that this person will have many regrets on the Day of Judgment, the first regret will be for not following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that he will wish that he had followed the messenger that he had obeyed the messenger that he had not left his way. And remember, this is not just people who don't believe in the Prophet sallallahu, or the USA, we

00:11:31--> 00:12:13

learned that on the Day of Judgment, some people will be prevented from reaching the Prophet sallallahu earlier sentiment, the Health Council. And when he will try to intercede for them, it will be said that you don't know what they changed in the religion after you, meaning they learned about your way, but then they modified it. They they change the religion, they added things to it as if they knew better than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So such people will be in immense regret on the Day of Judgment. So we really need to see that. How closely Are we following Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam? Is it that we are doing things as we please? Or are we doing

00:12:13--> 00:12:56

things the way that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught and never even think of overstepping his way because we are told in the Quran led to a demo, don't even try to get ahead of Allah and His Messenger, meaning stay behind, stay behind the messenger, let him be your leader. Meaning when he is your leader, that means you follow Him, you don't come up with your own ways. You have to follow him. So people who get distracted from his way, sometimes even in the name of piety, then this will be a source of great regret on the Day of Judgment. So it is important that we learn about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam not just his life story, because when we think about

00:12:56--> 00:13:38

the messenger sallallahu wasallam generally we only think about his sera which battles he participated in, or the you know, the companions names, etc. Yes, that is important. But we also have to study his teachings, his habits, his manners, his etiquette, the way that he worshipped Allah, the way that he lived the Quran. And for that it is necessary that we also study the Hadith, because remember the Hadith, it is the words which preserves the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his actions, his behavior, his interactions with people. So in order to follow Him, first we must learn. And then secondly, we see in these in these verses, that this person will

00:13:38--> 00:14:24

regret over having friends that led him away from the Vickers meeting that led him away from the Quran. The thing is, that as human beings, we all need friends, you know, we need that sense of belonging, we, we want those people to have conversations with, to have fun with, but sometimes a person can also get trapped within their social circle, where their friends, the people that are around them, are not really, you know, conducive to, to them, you know, achieving their goals, rather, their social circle is becoming any as an obstacle for them, that they're not allowing this person to follow the prophets of Allah who are to send them to follow the Quran to remember it, I

00:14:24--> 00:14:59

think about it, if for example, at work, there are certain people who you know affect your, your your productivity, meaning they constantly keep talking to you, they keep distracting you. And then you you see that that is affecting your work, which could put your, you know, job at risk, then you You do have to, you know, put some hard boundaries. If your child for example, is getting distracted from his studies because of a certain friend again, you will do something about that. But it's unfortunate that we have all the rules for our children but no rules for ourselves. So if someone is affecting your afterlife,

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

If someone is preventing you from the Quran, and this is not, not always directly, but indirectly also, if someone is taking you away from the Quran from reciting it from following it, then there is a big problem here. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us, that a person is under, under religion of his friend. So each person should see who is it that he has befriended? Because remember, you are an average of the five people that you surround yourself with the most. So who is it that you surround yourself with? Each person needs to see that the people that I hang out with? Are they such that they helped me with the purpose of my life, which is to worship Allah subhanaw

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

taala? Or are they becoming a hurdle

00:15:45--> 00:16:31

And ever is shaped on to man, a desert her and friends who are like shaitan are the same, they lie they betray, they use and then they leave the abandoned at the end, we'll call it was soon. And then to add to all of this, the messenger will see, the messenger will complain, the messenger will testify what that era be, oh my lord. Indeed my people have taken this hold on as a thing abandoned, meaning they have abandoned the Quran. And module ra is not just something that is abandoned, but it is also an object of mockery. Meaning the prophet will testify against the people who have abandoned the Quran, and this will be on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will

00:16:31--> 00:17:14

say, Can you imagine leaving the Quran abandoning the Quran is no small thing. In a hadith we learned that whoever places the Quran behind his back then then it will drive him to hellfire. It will push him towards hellfire. And imagine on the Day of Judgment, even the messenger will testify against such a person. The question is how does a person leave the Quran? How is it that a person makes a mockery of the Quran? How is it that he abandons it? It will claim Rahim Allah writes that Hadrian, Quran abandoning the Quran is in a number of ways. One is that a person does not listen to it, that they don't even bother to, you know, pay attention to its words, they don't believe in it,

00:17:15--> 00:17:58

then it is to not live by it. Meaning to not regard it's lawful as lawful, it's unlawful as unlawful, because there are people who believe in the Koran, who do listen to it, but they only believe in it and listen to it, you know, for the purpose of worship, you know, for the purpose of just earning some good deeds, not to follow. This is also a form of abandoning the Quran, then abandoning the hold on is also to not pay regard to its law to its rulings, believing that it is not necessary to follow the law of the Quran. But now it is irrelevant. And then it is to not reflect upon it. This is also a form of abandoning the Quran, to not bother to understand its meanings or to

00:17:58--> 00:18:29

learn them. And finally, abandoning the Quran is also by not seeking she fought through it. Meaning when a person falls ill, whether it is, you know, a spiritual illness, immoral illness, you know, mental illness or physical illness, if a person's only seeks treatment through other things, and they don't see treatment through the Quran, because they think, oh, the Quran does not heal, then this is also a form of abandoning the Quran.

00:18:30--> 00:19:13

The Quran is a healing and we must believe in that we must accept that. And remember that when we tell people for example, the importance and necessity of you know, seeking therapy, for instance, then please, please do not diminish the importance of the Quran. You know, people will say things like, and unfortunately I've heard this from many professionals, people will say things like, if you have a broken bone, you will not tell a person to recite the Quran, you will tell them to go to the doctor. So just like that if a person has a mental illness, don't tell them to recite the Quran, tell them to go to the therapist tell them to go to the professional. This is a very unfair and

00:19:13--> 00:19:57

wrong and disrespectful comparison. When we are suffering, whether it is from a spiritual illness or a physical illness, our first step should be to seek healing through the Quran. Because a lot tells us that the Quran is Shiva and to diminish and disregard the value of the Quran. Any This is extremely disrespectful. The Quran is not just empty words. The Quran is divine words. It is blessing words it is robotiq did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam not tell people to seek healing through the Quran? Did he not say Allah g hubie Kitab Allah? If the Quran heals physical ailments, then what do you think about spiritual or emotional wounds? The whole uncertainly heals.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

If a person has

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

The time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the companions were traveling and they came across the people, their leader was bitten by a venomous creature, and one of the companions just recited. So the Fatiha and the man was healed and the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sort of approved of this, any of the put on heals the physical body. What do you think? Will it not heal? What is in the mind? Absolutely, it will heal. So never ever diminish the power of the Quran by saying that, Oh, don't recite the Quran. Only go to the therapist. No, you go to the therapist. Absolutely you do. You go to the doctor, absolutely you do you take the medication. Absolutely you do. However, part of

00:20:42--> 00:21:24

your treatment plan must be the book of Allah. And if we think that the book of Allah does not heal, then this is a way of abandoning the Quran. We have so much faith in the DSM five, but we don't have faith in the book of Allah, any all of these sciences are new, they're, they're still you know, there's still research being done. And we accept that and we try and we are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for all the things that we are learning the different techniques that we can apply, but we must not dismiss the value of the Quran because remember, the Quran is the words of Allah, who will Hiraman my edge Maroon, it is cunnamulla. So understand what this is. And we don't want to

00:21:24--> 00:22:08

be of those people against whom Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam complains on the Day of Judgment, that my people abandoned the Quran, they had more faith and trust in other things than the Quran. So encourage people, make them understand the importance of therapy and medication. But don't do that by bringing the Quran down. That is unfair, and that is loden. In my mission, PT, he writes that every Muslim who is afraid of standing before his Lord should reflect over this verse, he should reflect deeply in order to save himself from this great calamity, and make a way out of this extreme difficulty that has actually affected all Muslims in the world. And what is this great

00:22:08--> 00:22:54

difficulty? What is this extreme calamity? It is the abandoning of the Quran that almost all Muslims are suffering from. So we all need to take a look at this I have personally that how much is the Quran really in my life? And remember that the healing from the Quran, it comes from its words, meaning it's mere recitation, the healing from the Quran, it comes from, you know, listening to it, but the healing also comes from understanding the Quran reflecting upon it, because a lot of times, you know, the problems that we are experiencing, they are, you know, to do with the way we think so the Quran helps us think correctly. What can Alakazam nikolina be, you know, I do 1 million woody

00:22:54--> 00:23:39

mean, and thus have we made for every prophet and enemy from among the criminals who opposed who opposed the profit, but sufficient as your Lord as a guide and a helper. And those who disbelieve say, why was the poor are not revealed to him all at once. Thus it is that we may strengthen their by your heart, see this, the Quran was not all given at once, because the Quran is meant to strengthen the heart. What does that mean? That the Quran brings strength through the heart to the heart, and we have spaced it distinctly meaning this is on purpose if Allah subhanaw taala wanted, all of the Quran could have been given to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one day. But

00:23:39--> 00:24:22

that was not the case. It was revealed over the course of his life over 23 years. Why? So that it would bring him healing and strength. And don't we see this in the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam how he was at the beginning of the Prophet hood, how upset he used to be, how sad he used to be, how worried he used to be so much that Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran that perhaps you would kill yourself any he would almost die from the stress and the anxiety and the fear and what brought him strength. It was the Quran, it was a constant connection with the Quran. So really, we are doing ourselves a disservice, we are really being unfair to ourselves, if we seek

00:24:22--> 00:25:00

treatment through this and through that, you know, through trial and error, and we fail to benefit from what is guaranteed, and that is the Quran. And they do not come to you with an argument except that we bring you the truth and the best explanation in response to it. And this is one of the wisdoms behind why the Quran was revealed gradually, because every time that people came up with, you know, a a question, then revelation would be sent accordingly. Every time that the Prophet sallallahu earlier seven was in some difficulty, the guidance of the Quran was given to him to help him solve the problem and the same is for us. The

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

Hold on is relevant till today will lie. It is relevant to you. If you take it as a source of guidance, and when you will open it, you will feel as though the Quran is speaking to you. It's amazing one day you're sad, you open the Quran and the Quran brings you relief. One day you are wondering about how to deal with your children the way that they're behaving, and you learn such a beautiful solution from the Quran. No matter what problem you're going through in your life, you stay connected with the Quran, and Allah subhanaw taala will guide you the ones who are gathered on their faces to hell. Those are the worst in position and farthest astray in their way. And We have

00:25:39--> 00:26:22

certainly given Musab the Scripture, and appointed with him his brother held on as an assistant. And we said go both of you to the people who have denied our signs, then we destroyed them with complete destruction. And the people have no meaning the same thing happened with them. When they denied the messengers, we drowned them, and we made them for mankind a sign and we have prepared for the wrongdoers a painful punishment, and we destroyed odd and some mood and the companions of the well, and many generations between them. And for each we presented examples. And each we destroyed with total destruction. And they meaning the people of monka have already come upon the town, meaning of

00:26:22--> 00:27:03

the people of Luke, which was showered with the reign of evil, so have they not seen it, but they are not expecting resurrection, meaning even when they come across the ruins of the people of the past, they don't learn a lesson. And when they see you, they take you not accepted ridicule. supanova The Prophet sallallahu radiocentre was such a noble, respectable man, he was known as someone honest and trustworthy. And once and then when he started calling people to the worship of Allah. All of a sudden, people started calling him crazy, they would make fun of him. And this happens today as well, that they're individuals who are very respectable. People are absolutely cool

00:27:03--> 00:27:50

and perfect with them until they mentioned the Quran then they say, Oh, he's a he's a little weirdo, saying is this the one whom Allah has sent a messenger? He almost would have misled us from our gods, had we not been steadfast in worship of them, but they are going to know when they see the punishment who is farthest astray in his way of our eight Amanita hola illa Huwa ephah antetokounmpo alayhi wa keila Have you seen the one who takes as his God his own desire? then would you be responsible for him? Have you seen the person who worships himself, meaning he is very, very obedient to his desire, so he fulfilled every wish. He is so obedient to his desire, that it is as

00:27:50--> 00:28:40

if his desire is his God. He obeys his wishes as a god is obeyed. And remember, the urges of the nuts they only mislead a person because in a nutshell, a monotone bizu the naps only urges a person to do what is evil, and it leads him on incorruption Allah says in the Quran, welaka tiberi however you like and Sabina Allah, do not follow the desire because it will mislead you from the path of Allah. So remember, following every wish, and every desire is not self care. This is narcissism. It is selfishness. It is worshiping the desire. It is about being blind to the needs of others, being blind to one's obligations towards Allah subhanaw taala is putting one's desire over the commands of

00:28:40--> 00:29:23

Allah. And this is what is being condemned over here, that a person does whatever they feel like they leave whatever they feel like they just do what they please. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that under the sky of all the gods that are worshipped besides Allah, the worst in the sight of Allah is the desire that is obeyed. So remember, the Muslim, the one who has surrendered to Allah is not the one who has surrendered to his desire, no, he has surrendered to Allah. This is why the Muslim will do things which the nuts does not like the desire does not like, which in fact is contrary to to the desire. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam warned us that Hellfire

00:29:23--> 00:29:59

is surrounded by all kinds of desires and passions, while Paradise is surrounded by all kinds of disliked and undesirable things. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said that how many people are those who pursue their desires, meaning they are, they are engrossed in fulfilling their desires, and they will have on the Day of Judgment, nothing but hell, nothing but hell, which means that if we want to go to agenda, then we have to bring ourselves to do things that we don't always like. But if Allah subhanaw taala likes them, then we have to do those things.

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

Or do you think that most of them here or reason, they are not except like livestock rather, they're even more astray in their way, have you not considered your Lord, how he extends the shadow and if he will, he could have made it stationary, then we made the sun for it and indication any, the the sun could have just been still, like, you know, fixed in one place. But the way that Allah subhanaw taala has created the system it is such that we see the sun moving, yes, we know that the earth is moving okay. But then from our perspective, it's as though the sun is moving and because of that any of the shadows on earth also shift, the light also dims, you know, it increases it decreases. And

00:30:45--> 00:31:32

how beautiful is that, then we hold it in hand for a brief grasp meaning for the duration of the night. And it is he who has made the night for you as clothing, and sleep a means for rest, and has made the day a resurrection. And it is he who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy. And we sent down from the sky pure water that we may bring to life there by a dead land and give it as drink to those we created of numerous livestock and men. And We have certainly distributed it among them that they might be reminded, but most of the people refuse except disbelief. And if we had willed, We could have sent into every city a warner so do not obey the disbelievers which I hate

00:31:32--> 00:32:21

whom big hadn't Kabira and strive against them with it. A great striving with what with the Quran, because at this time remember this is a Maki sola. At this time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had the honor in his hand in his heart, not a not a weapon. So strive against them with this Koran, meaning the striving of yours should be copied, it should be great. It should be a great struggle, meaning the more people reject it, the stronger you should be in believing in the Quran. And in conveying the message of the Quran. Don't succumb before their threats, and don't become afraid. No strive with your utmost and conveyed to people, as many people as you can. Don't just

00:32:21--> 00:33:05

struggle to make the other part of your life but strive to take it to others as well, because people deserve to know. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did strive a great deal, he would go to the markets, he would walk through the tents in Minar, he would go to individuals, he would go to crowds, he would go and recite the Quran, and he would teach it to individuals, he even sent letters, he spared no effort whatsoever. And it is he who has released simultaneously the two seas, meaning all types of water, all bodies of water are not the same, one fresh and sweet and one salty and bitter. And we and he has placed between them a barrier and prohibiting partition. Meaning

00:33:05--> 00:33:51

when these large bodies of water meet, they don't mix immediately. They don't blend instantly. They they remain true to who they are for a very long time. So it is important for us to embrace this diversity within the creation that Allah subhanaw taala has created, because there's benefit in that saltwater serves a purpose. And freshwater also serves a purpose. And it is he who has created from water a human being and made him a relative by lineage and marriage and ever is your Lord competent meaning with regards to his creation, but their worship rather than Allah, that which does not benefit them or harm them. And the disbeliever is ever against his Lord and assistant meaning to

00:33:51--> 00:34:41

shape on. So we should support each other in good things. Not that we start listening to shame on and become an assistant to him. And we have not sent to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam except as a bringer of good tidings and a warner say, I do not ask of you for it any payment. Only that whoever wills might take to his Lord a way that is all I ask of you what our color and how you lead Elijah mood and rely upon the EverLiving who does not die. Put your faith in Allah. Allah does not die and exalt Allah with his praise. Whenever you worry, whenever you get sad, then sub be handy and sufficient is he to be with the sins of his servants acquainted. Allah knows what people are

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

doing. He who created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six days and then established Himself above the Throne, the Most Merciful. He is a Russian man, first lb hubiera. So ask about him. One well informed meaning when you want to know about a loss

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

panatela don't go on asking people who don't know Allah. Ask those who know Allah who are well informed. And who is that that is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So remember, if we want to know about Allah, we have to see what is mentioned in the Quran about Allah azza wa jal, and how the prophets of Allah who already has said have described his Lord as religion, we don't come up with our own descriptions. And when it is said to them, prostrate to the Most Merciful was delivered man, they say, women are human, and what is the Most Merciful? They don't recognize him, they say, should we prostrate to that which you order us, and it increases them in aversion, meaning they get

00:35:41--> 00:36:25

offended when the name of a lot of our man is mentioned. So the fact is that many people don't understand who our man is. Remember, our man is also one of the major Names of Allah subhanaw taala. In fact, it is the second most important Name of Allah, the primary name is Allah, and then it is a man, because so often in many places, that a man comes immediately after Allah Bismillahirrahmanirrahim In the name of Allah, Who is he? He is a regimen of Rahim. So this shows us that when we think about Allah subhanaw taala, we should not just think that yes, that He is God, absolutely, he is God, He is the one who we worship. But the first thought that that should come to

00:36:25--> 00:37:12

our mind about Allah subhanaw taala is that he is extremely merciful. He is extremely compassionate. And this is what we need to teach our children out. So you see, typically, little children, we threaten them, we frightened them, that Allah will punish you a little throw you in hell, Allah will, you know, do this and do that to you. And so people, you know, children, you know, they grew up with more fear of God than love for God. So we have to, you know, keep that balance. But, of course, Allah subhanaw taala has mercy, remember is greater than his wrath, it overcomes his wrath. So make sure you emphasize on rahima more than rather tell people about the other of Allah subhanaw

00:37:12--> 00:37:59

taala also, but tell them about his llama even more so that they have more hope to God Allah Kalani Blessed is he who has placed in the sky great stars, and placed there in a burning lamp, meaning the sun and luminous moon, well who are lidija Allah Laila wonderhowto Hill fatten. And it is he who has made the night and the day in succession, meaning one goal so that the other can come, for whoever desires to remember, or desires, gratitude, meaning the cyclical rotation of the night and day, the stark differences between the night and the day, they remind us of very important things. And they also teach us they also bring about feelings of gratitude in us. And just like that, when things

00:37:59--> 00:38:43

change in our lives, you know, good times, they leave and some trial comes in and trial goes. And then, you know, we experience a blessing, this constant shift, you know, this cyclical rotation of night and day of good times, you know, of ease and hardship, what is this, it brings about reminder, it teaches us very important lessons. And it also brings about schicken feelings of gratitude. So there is a purpose behind all of this. And we see that specifically because of the night and day. You see, this creates the circadian rhythm within us, which not only allows us to rest and recuperate, but also allows us to make sense of time. And we have this natural biological clock, and

00:38:43--> 00:39:26

because of that, you know, the change in time, it helps us remember what we may have forgotten, Lima or other and, and also, we see that when, you know, we're getting so tired because of the fact that we've been working all day and then when we fall asleep, and you know, as, as we're getting into our beds, any, it's, it's really, you feel that gratitude that Alhamdulillah that Allah has, you know, brought the night so that we can rest that Alhamdulillah Allah has given us the chance to, you know, freshen up again. So, this is a blessing. And this is something that should teach us lessons. And it should also bring about feelings of gratitude. And also, you know, the fact that things change, the

00:39:26--> 00:39:59

time changes. It allows us to remember things that we have forgotten, because if things always remain the same, then we lose track of time we don't make we don't we don't have that sense of time. And these days upon the law because we're indoors constantly we forget, we even forget which day it is. We forget even which date it is soprano law. So when we are connected with the nature, you know, we see the night the day we see the changing of the moon, we we have the sense of time, and that allows us to remember things that we have forgotten. In our heads. We learned

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

He who forgets the prayer should say it when he remembers it. And there's and that is the kafala for it. Meaning when you when you remember, then you perform the prayer, where he bowed the man and the servants of the Most Merciful are

00:40:16--> 00:41:06

the slaves of the Most Merciful, the true worshipers of man, meaning those worshippers of Allah, who truly deserve his special mercy, his extreme mercy, who are they? What kind of actions do they do? Remember, all people are allowed by their Allah servants. But when Allah soprano tada mentioned someone as an OG, sometimes this is to really show that they are excellent worshipers, for example and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is described in the Quran as Allah zero out. That is to teach us to remind us that, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the best worshiper. So we should follow his example. So a bad man, the true worshipers of a man who seek His special Rama,

00:41:06--> 00:41:55

who will be worthy of his special Dharma, what kind of Riba do they do? What is their worship? Like? First of all, there are those who walk upon the earth easily, not leisurely, as if they have no life. But with humility, not arrogance, but gently not roughly firmly with dignity, without you know, creating noise or panic or causing harm to others. And em Shula Yes, it is walking, but driving is also similar. So I'm sure not only honan because they're evaluated manner calm in their minds. They're mindful, they're focused, they're focused on the Dharma, you know, they have that hope inside of them, they expect us Rama, so their walk their behavior, their manner also reflects

00:41:55--> 00:42:36

that. That's why they don't panic because they know Rahman is there, he will take care of their situation. And when the ignorant addressed them harshly, they say words of peace, meaning they respond to ignorance with peaceful words, not ill speech, or indecent words. So they're not rude or ill tempered in response to ignorant behavior. Remember, ignorance generally is of two kinds. One is that literally someone does not know. So when they don't know such as children, and children, sometimes in their Shahada in their ignorance, they behave in a very foolish way. They they say things that are completely illogical. So when someone doesn't know any better than Why get

00:42:36--> 00:43:18

frustrated and rude with them, because it's not going to help the situation anyway. The second type of jihad is that a person knows but they're behaving ignorantly. Why are they behaving ignorantly because of being overcome by emotion, such as their anger or their jealousy? So because they're not in the right state of mind, then saying peaceful words will actually solve the problem. And responding to fire with fire will only aggravate the situation. This is why what either hot above murgia halona call to Salama they say words of peace. And this is something that we need to practice especially these days when we are home. Because people you know, either we are dealing with our

00:43:18--> 00:44:01

children more than ever, who really are in many ways Jehan, and he they don't understand, they don't know. So there is no need to respond to their ignorant, you know, demands with harshness, and you know, with rudeness, and with, you know, anger, because that's not going to solve any problem. And if people ever get overcome by their anger, or their jealousy or their panic, or they're worried because everybody is stressing out about their work, then again, don't add fire to fire, but rather say peaceful words to help calm the situation down. But remember, this does not justify the wrongs of the ignorant. No, it doesn't justify that. But when someone is behaving ignorantly, with you,

00:44:01--> 00:44:38

then you save yourself and do not stoop to their level. Didn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam deal with people in that way? Absolutely. He did. When there was a man who came and urinated in the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said peaceful words, when the man came and pulled on, you know, the shell of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did not aggravate the situation by becoming angry over there. So always focus on the solution, not the problem. When Medina Joby tuna Lila beam suggestion what the AMA and those who spend part of the night to their Lord, prostrating and standing in prayer, meaning they spend the

00:44:38--> 00:44:59

night worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Remember pm is to worship in the night, any part of the night and it could be any worship but especially Salah because you see so Jordan What began as mentioned such the prostration and standing in prayer is mentioned which means that when we're praying in the night, these two parts of the prayer the pm and the such the especially

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

deserve our attention, meaning that our recitation should be long. And our such there should also be long. Sometimes what happens is that we focus on the recitation so much that for example, we are just aiming to complete you know, the entire just in the Salah. So our schedule becomes very very short that we're barely able to assess upon it'll be an arleigh. You know three times very quickly. So suggest then notice how such days mentioned first prostration is mentioned first. Because in such that is when you connect with Allah, you make Dora you ask. In PM, you recite the Koran and in such the you beg Allah. So remember praying in the night, this is something that Allah subhanaw taala is

00:45:43--> 00:46:25

praising over here. And this is the way of the righteous, the quality of the people of paradise. In fact, it is a prophetic way. And it is the best prayer after obligatory prayers. And it is a means of drawing close to a law, it is a means of earning forgiveness, it is a way of showing gratitude, and the believers honor is in praying piano name. And remember that even if a person is able to recite a little bit of the poem in the night, then it is worth it. We learnt in the Hadees that if a person recites 10 verses in the night, then have been thought of reward is written for him and thought of reward is better than the world and whatever that is in it. So yes, there are some nights

00:46:25--> 00:47:09

when we're really tired. Perhaps it is on the day when you missed your food. And you had a lot of work to do during the day. So by the time Russia hits, you are exhausted and you just want to sleep, just push yourself a little bit more pray to God pray for record and just recite 10 verses. And what does that mean does recycleable had called are the global fellow all over the globe and NASA even if you recite that a few times, and you have recited more than 10 verses, and for that the reward is a compiled a heap of reward better than the world and whatever that is. And if a person recites 100 verses in the night, then the reward of the entire night's worship is written for them. So make use

00:47:10--> 00:47:51

of These Nights, because remember, the pm in the nights of Ramadan is even better. It brings forgiveness of sins. And when a man asked the Prophet sallallahu earlier said that if I were to do pm in the nights of Ramadan, then then who would I be amongst? And he said unto ominously de Akina was Shahada, you would be among the truthful and the martyrs meaning amongst the best of Allah servants on the Day of Judgment. So every single night matters. And those who say Our Lord have heard from us the punishment of hell. Indeed, it's punishment is ever adhering. Indeed it is evil as a settlement and residents. So we should also make dua to Allah, that he or Allah, a journeyman and

00:47:51--> 00:48:38

na, O Allah save me from the punishment of hell. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us seek a loss protection from the punishment of hell. And when you seek refuge from hell, any three times even Hellfire says Allahumma ajeet human need Oh Allah save him from me. Allahumma journeymen and na Aloma Jitney Mina na Allahumma journeymen and and there are those who, when they spend, do do so not excessively or sparingly, but are ever between that justly moderate meaning they're neither cheap, nor are they wasteful. And those who do not invoke with Allah another day tea or kill the soul which Allah has forbidden to be killed except by right and do not commit unlawful sexual

00:48:38--> 00:49:25

intercourse and whoever should do that, meaning any of these sins will meet a penalty their consequences for this multiplied for him is the punishment on the Day of Resurrection, meaning that punishment will be ever increasing and growing one after the other and he will abide there in humiliated, unable to come out. Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous deeds for them. Allah will replace their evil deeds with good And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. And he who repents and does righteousness does indeed turn to Allah with accepted repentance Subhanallah you see sincere repentance, we see the benefit of that in these verses that it converts sins into

00:49:25--> 00:49:59

good deeds, meaning now a person is rewarded as if they had performed good deeds of similar amount. So sincere repentance, what is that? It is when a person when they think of their sins, they don't say, Oh, I missed that. Or that was fun. No, they say in a delay. We're in a eulogy. Oh, yeah, Allah erase that sin for me. They seek forgiveness, they cry, and they don't just stop there. They get busy and doing good things that I need to make up for all of that. So when they do good than in the house or not, you

00:50:00--> 00:50:45

hipness, say, good deeds, erase bad deeds. And every time that a person repents, they seek forgiveness, they do something good, then we don't even have these that, you know, sins are like chainmail, that that is around a person. So every time that a person does something good, then a link from that cheat meal is broken. So when a person increases and there is the fault in their good deeds, then that chain meal completely breaks down until that person is completely free. This is why we are taught that if you commit a sin, then replace it with a good one, a private one in private, and a public one in public, meaning depending on the nature of the sin, if you did it privately,

00:50:45--> 00:51:20

then replace it with a private good deed. If you committed a sin openly, then commit a good deed openly meaning that is the kafala for it. That is the expiation for it. We learned that a man came to the Prophet of the Lord instead of and he asked that yellow suit of law. What do you think of a man who did every single sin, meaning every sin in the book he's done it? He did not leave any sin whatsoever? did not leave any desire, big or small, except that he fulfilled it. Is there any Toba for him? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Did you accept Islam? He said, Yes, I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship of Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

00:51:20--> 00:52:02

sallam is the Messenger of Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, do good deeds, and leave sins, and Allah will turn all your sins into good deeds, Allahu Akbar. And we learned that on the day of gentlemen, a person will be brought, and it will be set present all of his minor sins, and all of his minor sins will be presented. And it will be said, Did you do this? And did you do this? And did you do this? And the person will admit, yes, I did this, I did this, I did this. And he will be so afraid that these are just my minor sins, what about my major sins, and it will be said, that give him in place of every sin a good deed. So when he will see all of his sins, his

00:52:02--> 00:52:46

minor sins being converted into good deeds, he will say Allah, I see some other major sins, which I committed, but I know that I have committed some major sins but there but but I don't see them over here. So Pamela, why? Because Allah will convert the sins into good deeds, meaning now a person will be rewarded. This is the benefit of Toba. So repent, a stuffin a lover, a tubal la seek forgiveness make Toba every day, multiple times a day, and never ever think about yourself that Oh, What sin did I ever commit? Don't lie to the KU enforcer calm, don't claim yourselves to be pure. Allah knows who you are. And there are those who do not testify to falsehood, meaning they do not give false

00:52:46--> 00:53:28

testimony. And they don't observe they don't look at what is untrue. falsehood does not attract them, even if it's for the purpose of entertainment. And when they pass near ill speech, a level will How do they pass, they pass by with dignity, meaning they don't participate in it, they avoid it in a dignified way without getting affected by it. So Allah subhanaw taala is praising such people. And those who, when they're reminded of the verses of their Lord, do not fall upon them deaf and blind. No, they listen attentively. They try their best to understand the verses of Allah, and they follow them to the best of their ability. And those who say, Our Lord, grant us from among our

00:53:28--> 00:53:40

spouses and offspring comfort to our eyes, and make us an example for the righteous, it'll been a habit dynamin as YG now with the the Yeti now kurata our union, which is a little cleaner.

00:53:42--> 00:54:30

So they pray, not just for themselves, but their loved ones, also, that your Allah make them a source of polworth argued for us, a coolness for our eyes. And what does that mean? That when we see them, when we see their actions, when we see the good deeds that they're doing, we are delighted, because remember, when you when you see your family doing good things, a bad when you see them worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. And in sha Allah in the Hereafter, you see the reward that they are given for that this is what will bring you true joy and absolute pleasure in it. This is this is real pride, you know, real happiness. You know what, yes, we are happy when we see our families, you

00:54:30--> 00:55:00

know, achieving their worldly goals. We are very happy when we see our children, you know, accomplishing something, you know, get get a certain medal or win a certain contest and that is excellent. But our main concern should be that Yeah, Allah make them obedient, righteous servants to you, so that they don't just bring us comfort here, but they bring us true happiness and delight in the Hereafter, which are undeniable with the kena EMA and make us a leader. An example of that.

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

Those who are righteous, meaning make them righteous make our children and our families righteous. Why? Because if they're righteous, then they will also help us be righteous. Because you see children who are God fearing they also remind their parents, the dad, this is not allowed. Mom, this is not okay. And poorly said that there is nothing more pleasing to the believer, than seeing his wife and his children, obedient to Allah, the Exalted, and Allah subhana wa tells us that save yourselves and your families from the fire. This is why we must focus on our families as well and teach them and make the offer them especially you see a moral dilemma and how she took us to the

00:55:43--> 00:56:23

service of the Prophet sallallahu, early usnm. She wasn't just concerned about, you know, the good health of her son, but she wanted him to have the best company. So we should be concerned about the religious upbringing, the religious welfare of our loved ones also, and remember me as well Gina as well just includes husband and wife. And it also includes those who are like you, meaning your companions. So make the law not just for your self, or your children or your spouse, your family, your loved ones, but also your companions that Yeah, I love people that I work with, make them righteous, make them a source of comfort for us. Not that we're always you know, caught up in

00:56:23--> 00:57:11

arguments and fights and demanding you know, things from one another granted sukoon in our families, feel our you know, home with your worship, so that we we enjoy true pleasure forever and for always and make us righteous servants to you. Those will be awarded the chamber alone Fatah meaning and paradise for what they patiently endured, you see subud Reba requires suburb and they will be received there in with greetings and words of peace abiding eternally very good is a settlement and residents. So over here, many characteristics of man are mentioned. And these are characteristics that we should review on a regular basis. So that we also practice them in sha Allah say, What would

00:57:11--> 00:57:43

my lord care for you, if not for your supplication? Meaning a lot of Allah is not in need of you, you are in need of Allah. So keep calling upon a lot keep asking him for you have denied so your denial is going to be adherent. So the one who does not seek Allah that allowed so he does not need him Allah, Allah is actually angry with the person who does not call upon him. So let us keep calling upon him. Let us keep expressing our you know dependence on Allah subhanaw taala and let us keep begging him as origin.

00:57:44--> 00:58:34

Sunita Shara Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, pase Meem. These are the verses of the clear book. The Quran is a clear book, meaning it is unapologetic in its truths. It is convincingly clear, it is manifest it is unambiguous in its message, perhaps Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you would kill yourself with grief, that they will not be believers. Look at his concern for humanity, if we will, we could send down to them from the sky a sign from which their next would remain humbled. Meaning we can see that we can show them miracles that they would be unable to refuse, we can compel them to believe. But this is not the way of Allah. He does not force people. People have to embrace

00:58:34--> 00:59:19

the truth themselves. And this is the test of life. And no revelation comes to them a new from the Most Merciful, except that they turn away from it, for they have already denied but there will come to them the news of that which they used to ridicule, did they not look at the earth, how much we have produced the rain from every normal kind? Anyhow, what diversity Allah has created on the earth, and it's amazing how even through cracks, any plants are growing forth. Indeed, and that is a sign but most of them were not to be believers, and indeed your Lord, He is the Exalted in Might the merciful what a nada, burka, la huella Aziza Rahim and mentioned when your Lord called Moosa saying

00:59:19--> 00:59:40

go to the wrongdoing, people, those who are doing work on themselves by committing sin because remember, oppression is not just harming other people. When a person commits a sin, the first one they oppress is actually themselves. And that is what fit our own and his nation were doing. They were wronging themselves. And of course there were also oppressing the bunny is that are you?

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

So he was told and mentioned when your Lord called Moosa saying go to the wrongdoing, people, the people of fit our own, will they not fear Allah? Musa alayhis salam said, My Lord, indeed I fear that they will deny me. So the fear of denial. The fear of rejection is very normal, he said and mighty

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

Chest will tighten. I feel extremely uncomfortable and my tongue will not be fluent. Meaning I'm afraid that out of my fear, I will not be able to express myself clearly. So send for how don't send him instead, somehow the law Musashi said I was nervous, he was afraid. And this shows us that it is very, very normal to feel nervous around people. You know, sometimes we experience social anxiety, but sometimes we experience social anxiety in front of certain individuals, and that is fine, it happens. This is part of being human. But then how do you help yourself in a situation like that? Look at Musashi Sam, he asked Allah subhanaw taala for OC Isla Harun send her own instead. And what

01:00:46--> 01:01:31

what happened? Allah subhanaw taala sent out on early Sunnah as his assistant. So seek help through Allah subhanaw taala. And look for people ask Allah subhanaw taala to send you people who will be a source of support and comfort for you. And he said, and they have upon me a claim due to sin, meaning I accidentally killed one of them. So I fear that they will kill me. Unless pound Allah said, No, go both of you with our signs. Indeed we are with you listening in Morricone Muslim your own. So both of them were sent together. Why? Because at times, you know, certain responsibilities, certain burdens are too heavy, to be carried by one individual alone. So it is very important that

01:01:31--> 01:01:49

we share the burden. We share the responsibility with like minded people with people who are willing to support us. And when you don't find any supporters ask Allah subhanaw taala to send you people who will aid you who will support you just like just like Masada is surrounded,

01:01:50--> 01:02:33

fat to fit our own, go to fit our own and say, We are the messengers of the Lord of the worlds commanded to say send with us the children of Islam, he fit our own set, did we not raise you among us as a child? And you remained among us for years of your life? Have you forgotten that? And then you did your deed which you did? And you were of the ungrateful? Do you remember what you did? You killed one of us and you just fled? Musashi, Salah, he doesn't get defensive here, he doesn't get angry over here, he admits, he said, I did it. Then at that time, while I was of those astray, meaning it was a mistake, it was an accident. And then I fled from you when I feared because you are

01:02:33--> 01:03:17

not just unfair. So I feared you. And that is why I fled. Then my lord granted me wisdom and prophet who had appointed me as one of the messengers, meaning this is a less favorite of me. So Pamela, you see some people, they constantly remind you of the favors that they have done to you. And they constantly remind you of the mistakes that you make, that you made, sometimes mistakes that you made in your childhood, and to try to bring you down and try to make you feel bad by reminding you of your mistakes. And this is the worst thing that can be done. If someone has changed. What they need is encouragement and support. Not that we keep bringing them down by shaming them by reminding them

01:03:17--> 01:04:04

of their past. So when you see positive change in people, please refrain from judging and criticizing them, give them hope and encouragement. And here we see that for their own only reminded Moosa has some of the favorites that Fiona had done to musasa and he forgot about his own crimes. So Massara Hey, Sam said and Is this a favor of which you remind me that you enslave the children of Israel in meaning, why was I raised in your house anyway, because you were killing my people. If you weren't killing my people, I would not have been in your house. So we see here that forgetting one's own crimes, and remembering one's favours on others in need. This is a fit our own IQ act. This is

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

from the behavior of our own. So in general also, we should refrain from reminding people of the favors that we have done them, even to our children. Why? Because this is a reprehensible thing. People don't like it and Allah does not like this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there are three people whom Allah subhanaw taala will not even speak to on the Day of Judgment, he will not even speak to them, he will and in another Hadees we learn that there are people who Allah will neither accept their obligatory deeds nor voluntary deeds, soprano law, and who are these of them is aluminum, being the person who does a favor to others and then keeps reminding them for the

01:04:46--> 01:04:59

rest of their life. Do you remember Do you remember? Do you remember? You owe it to me? You owe it to me. And this has reprehensible a loss. Pousada hates this said fit our own beating now that he was speechless, he said and what is the Lord

01:05:00--> 01:05:40

Have the world's Guinea receive it constantly for hours avoiding the message that most artists and others giving and he's coming up with different ways to distract Musashi Suleiman the people. Musa alayhis salam answered, he said, The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and that between them, if you should be convinced that our own set to those around him, do you not hear, Musa said, your Lord and the Lord have your first forefathers, for their own said, Indeed, your messenger who has been sent to you is mad, was already set up again. He doesn't care about what our own is saying. He says, Lord of the east and the west, and that between them if you were to reason, so musar. s&m does not

01:05:40--> 01:06:20

take any of this personally, he doesn't get angry. He doesn't get distracted by what ferroan is trying to distract him with. He's focused on conveying his message that our own said confidant got annoyed. He said if you take a god other than me, I will show the place you among those imprisoned was artists that I've said even if I brought you prove manifest, that Arlen said then bring it if you should be truthful, so most artists that I'm through his staff, and suddenly it was a serpent manifest, and he drew out his hand thereupon, it was white for the observers for our own set to the eminent ones around him. Indeed, this is a learned magician, Subhan Allah, He wants to drive you out

01:06:20--> 01:07:00

of your land by his magic. So what do you advise? Most artists have never said that I am here to expel you or to take over your civilization. All he said was let the bunny is slot you go set them free, but yet for our own called the miracles magic, and he said that this man has some hidden agenda. They said postpone the matter of him and his brother and send them on the city's gatherers who will bring you every learned skilled magician. So the magicians were assembled for the appointment of a well known day, and it was set to the people will you congregate, that we might follow the magicians if they are the predominant and when the magicians arrived, they said to fit

01:07:00--> 01:07:42

our own. Is there indeed for us a reward if we are the predominant Subhanallah first thing the magician's demanded what's in it for us? He said yes. And indeed you will then be of those near to me. Masada said I've said to them throw whatever you will throw so the through their ropes and their stamps and said by the might have fit our own beer is that if it our own? Indeed it is we who are predominant we shouldn't say such things. Beer is a tea so and so no, it should only be beer is a tiller he will put it in fact, even when we were in pain, we are taught to say Bismillah r all the beer is Attila he will ponder it him and surely Merida will have it. And we should say the seven

01:07:42--> 01:08:25

times is the best pain medication that moosari served through his staff. And at once it devoured what they were what they falsified. So the magician's fell down in prostration to Allah because they knew they understood. They said, We have believed in the Lord of the worlds, the Lord of Moosa and Harun frown got really upset he said, You believed Musa before I gave you permission. Indeed, he is your leader who has taught you magic, so Pinilla he is his imagination is running wild. If he just accepted the truth as it was, he would be at so much peace, but you are going to No, I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will surely crucify you all. The Magician

01:08:25--> 01:09:12

said Lal blade, no harm, whatever, indeed to our Lord, we will return. You see the strength of enough of a man truly, you know, it takes a person's fear away. Yes, the person feels afraid, but then because of their fear subsides, they're able to look at the big picture, and they're able to rely upon Allah soprano Tada. They said, Indeed, we aspire that our Lord will forgive us our sins, because we were the first of the believers. And we inspire to Moosa traveled by night with my servants make the digital leave at night, indeed, you will be pursued that fit our own scent among the city's gatherers, and said, Indeed, those are but a small band, and indeed, they are enraging us

01:09:12--> 01:09:51

this bunny is so ill, they have fled, and they're not they're not that many, and they have made us very angry. And indeed, We are a cautious society. So you know what, we're going to preserve our civilization. We're going to go catch them, and we're going to bring them back. So we removed them from gardens and springs and treasures and honorable station, thus, and we cause to inherited the children of Islam. So they pursued them at sunrise. And when the two companies saw one another, because remember, now the bunny is failing right in front of the water. They don't know which way to go. And behind them now is who for our own and his great army, the companions of Masada, Sam said

01:09:51--> 01:09:59

indeed we are to be overtaken inanimate raccoon. That's it. We're doomed. Call a Kela Musashi Sam said no

01:10:00--> 01:10:50

way, in number era be indeed with me as my Lord say a dean, He will guide me musallam is Sam is the Prophet of Allah and look at his level of faith and his hope in Allah subhanaw taala that even though on one side is the water, and on the other side is for their own and his army, any How do you escape? Do you go up? Do you fly somehow? Do you dig into the earth somehow an escape, which which way is the way out? You don't see any way out but you know that Allah subhanaw taala is there and Allah will make a way. So remember, when may yet the pillar her Yoda Allahu Maharaja, whoever fears Allah. Then Allah subhanaw taala certainly creates a way out for them. And Allah subhanaw taala

01:10:50--> 01:11:42

provides them from where they cannot even expect from where they cannot even imagine. So sometimes the taqwa of Allah means not losing hope. It means believing in the promise of Allah having this year clean, that my Lord will not abandon me. So muthaiga salaam said in Mariela be say a headin and what happened then, for Oh hanaa either Mussa, a new three br sock and then we inspire to Moosa strike with your staff the sea and parted and each portion was like a great towering mountain. This was a miracle. But this miracle came about when when Musashi Sena affirmed his faith in Allah subhanaw taala. He said, in the marinova be with me is my Lord. And remember, Maria of Allah, that

01:11:42--> 01:12:23

Allah subhanaw taala is when to his servants. He is Markham. aina Mata Kunal he is with you and he knows what you're doing. Wherever you are, you cannot exist without him. You cannot exist you cannot live you cannot do anything without his helping you and enabling you without his allowing you But remember, there is our Maria, General Maria for all servants. But then there's the house the special Maria the special help of Allah soprano Prado for his special servants, just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the cave. He said, Let the husband in the Lucha Marina that will abubaker Don't be sad, Allah is with us, and alosa primadonna helped him in the cave. And here

01:12:23--> 01:13:09

Masada has set out, he is trapped between our own and the water. And he says Allah is with me. And Allah helped him how that the sea was parted. And we advanced there to the pursuer. So we'll say somebody is like you, they went into the path through the water, and for their own and his army pursued them, and we saved Musa and those with him all together, then we drowned the others. You see, it is important that we call upon Allah subhanaw taala at such times, and that can only be when we believe in the might of Allah, the perfection of Allah and His mercy. And that is what is mentioned here. Indeed, and that is a sign a lesson but most of them are not to be believers, and

01:13:09--> 01:13:57

indeed your Lord He is the Exalted in Might the merciful. We can only call upon Allah subhanaw taala at such times when we realize that our Lord is a disease, that our Lord is a Rahim who is Allah Aziz Allah Aziz is the one who is mighty who overcomes everything, and none can overcome him. Allah Aziz is the exalted so none can reach his greatness, the unparalleled so none is like Him and who is laheem remember a Rahim the difference between the name of our Haman Omar amount of Rahim signifies a less Pantheon has special mercy to words the believing servants. So what happened over here Mossad, his son and found himself trapped, but he called upon Allah and Allah subhanaw taala created

01:13:57--> 01:14:43

a way out for him, because he is an Azizi is capable. He is a Rahim he's Especially Merciful towards his believing servants, it will pay him said that there is no door that Allah closes with his wisdom, except that he opens to with his mercy to with his mercy. And look at what happened over here. Two mercies came upon musante his setup. One is that yes, he found his way out. And the other was that his enemy fit our own was drowned. So that was also a lesser penalty at his mercy. What do I lay him never able to hear him and recite to them the news of Ibrahim, when he said to his father and his people, what is it that you worship? They said, We worship idols and remain to them devoted.

01:14:44--> 01:14:59

He said, do they hear you when you supplicate or do they benefit you or do they harm? Very solid questions, real questions, they said, but we found over father's doing this. He said, Then do you see what you have been worshipping? Are you just going to follow them or are you going to think about it yourself?

01:15:00--> 01:15:48

Also, you and your ancient forefathers. Indeed they are enemies to me except the Lord of the worlds so I worship only the Lord of the worlds. Who is he? A lady Hello Connie for Hua howdini, who created me and He it is Who guides me. One lady who are you very moody, we are skinny, and it is he who feeds me and gives me a drink what either Maria do for who Ah, Fini, and when I am ill, it is he who cures me. I am ill, because generally we fall ill because of our own ignorance, our own desires. So who is it that heals us? It is Allah subhanaw taala who heals, whether it is a spiritual, emotional or physical problem. Alyssa Pembleton is the one who heals. A man came and said to the

01:15:48--> 01:16:34

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Neeraj. Habib. I am a puppy, meaning I'm a man who, who heals people and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allahu Labib, it is Allah who healed. But until Rajaram Rafiq, you are just a kind person, a gentle person, whereas healing it actually comes from Allah subhanaw taala only. And this is why when we are ill, we Yes, we take the medication and we go to the doctor, etc. But we believe that the real healing comes from who it actually comes from alone, not from the means. And this is why in illness we made Dora emsa Hilbert, Sava vaness, BIA, deca, Shiva laka, Shiva who illa Anta, that in your hand is healing, Oh Allah, and no one can remove

01:16:34--> 01:17:16

this ailment except you. So remember, Allah is the one who gives healing to his servants, through means, and also without means, sometimes, there, you know, almost primarily gives healing to his servants through means that they can see that they can understand that like medication, any it makes sense. For example, this was the deficiency in the body, you know, and and you take a medication to make up for that deficiency. And now, the body is fine. Right? You understand the process. But then the last part is sometimes heals His servants through ways that we cannot fully comprehend, like, for example, Jacobo Saddam's eyes, and he had become blind. And how is it that his vision was

01:17:16--> 01:18:02

restored, not with medication, not with surgery, but with the shirt of use of his setup? So Pamela, so it is Allah who heals, he is the source of healing. So this is why we should call upon Allah subhanaw taala that Oh, Allah heal me. Will Allah give me Shiva? Once a child was brought to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam and that child's arm had gotten terribly burnt. So the Prophet sallallahu earlier said it would apply his you know, he applied his saliva on the burn, and he made the offer that child he said it had been several bananas. washy anta Shafi, sorry, as he built several bananas, washy anta Shafi, last Shiva, Illa, Shiva, Shiva unless you have a coma. So these

01:18:02--> 01:18:48

are the hours that we can find in, you know, different books, different apps, and these are the hours that we should use. Because as we can see, these days, we don't always have a pill, have a treatment for every, you know, sickness. We we don't have a vaccine for every sickness we don't, we don't have the means always. So healing is truly in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala never, ever forget that and who will cause me to die, and then Bring me to life and who I aspire that he will forgive me my sin on the Day of Recompense. This door is also very important that all I hope that you will forgive me my sins on the Day of Judgment. We learned that there was a man who shamika

01:18:48--> 01:19:28

Molina, who did many works of charity yet he was famous for his philanthropy, but he never said this though. That bill fiddly. huddly a to Medina so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that his deeds will not benefit him. Then Ibrahim already said I made the law he said it'll be heavily hookman will hopefully be slowly hain My Lord grant me authority, Grant me wisdom and join me with the righteous What a beautiful girl, Grant me hokum, wisdom, the ability to do the right thing at the right time to make the right decisions to be decisive. And so often in our lives, we suffer because we are indecisive, or because we're constantly making wrong decisions. And you know,

01:19:28--> 01:19:59

indecision can really become a uni it can really make us extremely anxious. So it's important that we ask Allah subhanaw taala that Oh Allah grant me hokum. And then he prayed for a righteous company in this life and in the next life because good friends are really a blessing. You feel secure around them, you feel at ease around them, which is really send us lidocaine fill a hearing, and grant me a reputation of honor among later generations. Meaning that after

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

I am gone. I am still mentioned in a good way that people people take me as a good example in model and this this should be lisanna Seidel clean, any truthful not false. Now that people think that I am so righteous, but my reality is completely different. No listeners slippin, which are leaving water, 30 genitourinary, and place me among the inheritors of the Gardens of Pleasure, and forgive my father, indeed, he has been of those astray and do not disgrace me on the day, they're all resurrected. Meaning saves me from being humiliated because of my father and this is why his father will not come on the day of judgment in his own form illest parent I will change this form so that

01:20:43--> 01:21:34

it would not hurt Ibrahim or his son on the day when there will not benefit anyone wealth or children. 11 Attila Habib colbyn Salim, but only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart. And this is why our ultimate focus in this life should be the health of our hearts, we are very, very obsessed with the health of our wealth, the well being of our wealth, the growth of our wealth, and that of our children. Yes, that is important. This is a manner that will last pound God has given us but our heart deserves a lot of attention also, because on the Day of Judgment, that is what will benefit us. And this is why the you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the

01:21:34--> 01:22:21

Eman of the slave cannot be upright until his heart is upright. So if the heart is sound, the body is sound in this life, the actions will be good in the grave, a person will be safe and in the hereafter also, the person will be saved because we learned that in the grave. Any a person's good deeds will protect him from the punishment. So those good deeds a person is only able to do them if the heart is good. So our well being depends on the well being of our heart. So it is important that we do something about that. And the question is what is the sound heart? due to sorry, has Cindy he explains that the Saleem heart the sound heart has five characteristics. The first is that it has a

01:22:21--> 01:23:09

slimmer, meaning that it has become submissive to Allah it has a Somali law. Secondly, that it has selama literary rasulillah that it has given itself up to meaning it has given authority to the command of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Thirdly, that it has assessed Salaam Alaikum wa alayhi wa Qatari that it has completely resigned and surrendered itself to Allah decree, meaning it is completely accepting of Allah subhanaw taala his decisions, then fourthly, it has Salima mean Kali Maya Thoreau who are Neela, who will decree that it has escaped and has become safe by getting away from everything that comes between it and Allah and His remembrance. And then

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

finally, the fifth is that it has Salah, meaning Salah Odia of law, that it has reconciled with itself and with the friends of Allah subhanaw taala. So this is a study of heart that has surrendered to Allah that has accepted the authority of the Messenger of Allah that has fully resigned to the decree of Allah and that it has fled from everything from or that comes between it and Allah subhana wa Tada. And then it has made peace with the righteous servants of Allah also. So we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked in which people are the best. And he said the best of people is every person who has a clean heart and a truthful tongue. And he said

01:23:54--> 01:24:38

mahamudra middle calm. So the people said we know what truthful tongue is, but what is Maha will call, what is this clean heart? He said, Every heart that is God fearing because it has surrendered to Allah, and it is clean in which has no sin, rebellion, hatred or jealousy, any, neither is he angry with the decree of Allah, nor is he angry with the friends of Allah, rather it is at peace. So a person who is at peace here will be at peace there. And remember Salim is also someone who has survived, meaning a snake bitten but they didn't die because of that. And yes, they are trials in this life difficulties very, very painful situations in this life, but when a person holds on to

01:24:38--> 01:25:00

Allah subhanaw taala they remember that Allah is there. So they Yasuo Bella, and he clings to Allah holds on to Allah than such a person survives and that is what we need. And that is what we should pray for. Well as Luca, Calvin Salim and Dr. Rob, give me a heart that is sound. Some of the righteous, they would say that the

01:25:00--> 01:25:30

soundness of the heart is with five things. And what is that? First of all the recitation of the Quran with reflection. Secondly, eating little meaning keeping the heart empty, sorry, keeping the the stomach empty, meaning allowing your stomach to be empty at certain times. Thirdly, praying in the night, standing in prayer in the night, then at the level beside the level beside, meaning,

01:25:31--> 01:26:15

calling upon Allah subhanaw taala, with humility at the time of sohus. And then finally, being in the company of the righteous. These are things that help a person have a clean heart, and paradise will be brought near that day to the righteous and Hellfire will be brought forth for the aviators and it will be set to them. Where are those who used to worship other than Allah? Can they help you or help themselves, so they will be overturned into Hellfire they and the deviator is, and the soldiers of a blease all together? Who are the soldiers of Iblees those who follow Him, they will say, while they dispute there in By Allah, we were indeed in manifest error, when we equated you

01:26:15--> 01:27:02

with the Lord of the worlds then they will admit, and no one misguided us except the criminals. So now we have no intercessors and not a devoted friend when I said you can harm him, then if we only had a return to the world, and could be of the believers, indeed in that as a sign, but most of them were not to be believers, and indeed your Lord, He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful, the people of New denied the messengers, when their brother new set to them, will you not fear Allah? Indeed I am to you a trustworthy messenger, Sofia, Allah and obey me. And I do not ask you for it any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds, Sofia, Allah and obey me. They said, should

01:27:02--> 01:27:44

we believe you while you were followed by the lowest class of people? He said, at what is my knowledge of what they used to do? their account is only upon my Lord, if you could perceive and I am not one to drive away the believers. I am only a clear Warner. They said if you do not desist or no, you will surely be of those who are stoned we will kill you. He said, My Lord, indeed my people have denied me, then judge between me and then with decisive judgment, and save me and those with me of the believers. So we saved him and those with him in the laden ship, then we drowned thereafter. The remaining ones, indeed, and that is a sign but most of them were not to be believers, and indeed

01:27:44--> 01:28:23

your Lord, He is the Exalted in Might the merciful are the denied the messengers, when their brotherhood said to them, will you not fear Allah? Indeed I am to you a trustworthy messenger. So fear Allah and obey me. And I do not ask you for it any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds Do you construct on every elevation is sign amusing yourselves, and you're just preoccupied with worldly things, and take for yourselves palaces and fortresses that you might abide eternally, meaning you have made your homes such that, you know, as if you are going to live here forever. So all of your focus and attention and your time and energy and resources, and your mental,

01:28:23--> 01:29:04

you know, capacity, all of it is dedicated to your homes, are you going to abide here eternally, and when you strike, you strike as tyrants. So if you're alive, obey me, and fear he who provided you with that which, you know, provided you with grazing livestock and children and gardens and springs. Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a terrible day. Look at their response, they said, It is all the same to us. Whether you advise us or are not of the advisors, we are not going to listen to you. This is not but the custom of the former peoples, and we are not to be punished. You're just you know, saying this to make us afraid we don't believe you. And they denied him. So he destroyed

01:29:04--> 01:29:47

them, indeed, and that is a sign but most of them were not to be believers, and indeed your Lord, He is the Exalted in Might the merciful again, this has been repeated. Some will deny the messengers when their brothers Salim said to them, will you not fear Allah? Indeed I am to you a trustworthy messenger. So fear Allah and obey me and I do not ask you for any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds to takuna FEMA Hakuna Avi Nene. Will you be left in what is here secure from death? Beating? Do you think you're going to live here forever in this security, it's not going to last forever. You think you're going to be here forever within gardens and springs and fields of

01:29:47--> 01:30:00

crops and palm trees with soften fruit and you carve out of the mountains homes with skill. So fear Allah and obey me and do not obey the order of the transgressors, who cause corruption in

01:30:00--> 01:30:44

The land and do not amend meaning your role models should be those who do is lie, meaning who make amends, not those who cause corruption. They said, You are only of those affected by magic. You are but a man like ourselves. So bring the sign, if you should be of the truthful, he said, this is a chic casual for her as a time of drink, and for you as a time of drink each unknown day, they had to take turns, and do not touch her with harm, lest you be seized by the punishment of a terrible day. But they didn't care. They hamstrung her, and so became regretful, and the punishment sees them indeed, and that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers, and indeed your Lord, He is

01:30:44--> 01:31:31

the Exalted in Might the merciful. The people of Luke denied the messengers, when their brother Luke said to them, will you not fear Allah? Indeed I am to you are trustworthy messenger. So fear Allah and obey me, and I do not ask you for any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds. Do you approach males among the worlds and leave what your Lord has created for you as mates, but you are people transgressing? Remember, if the haraam is tempting, it is accessible, it doesn't mean that you are obligated or you are being compelled to indulge in it. Know, Allah subhanaw taala tests us with different desires, and with different options that are made available to us. So it is up to

01:31:31--> 01:32:16

us what we choose. And that is what we will be held accountable for, we will not be held accountable for the desire that we have in our heart, because that is not always by choice, we will be held accountable for the choices that we make. They said if you do not desist or lose, you will surely be of those evicted, we will kick you out, you will not be allowed to stay here. He said, Indeed, I am toward your deed of those who detest it. He said, I do not accept this action of yours. I detest this deed of yours. And this is very important for every believer, my Lord saved me and my family from the consequences of what they do. So we saved him and his family, all except an old woman among

01:32:16--> 01:32:55

those who remained behind any she was a woman. She didn't participate in this deed herself. But because she agreed with it, she supported it. She was destroyed with them. Then we destroyed the others, and we rained upon them a rain of stones and evil was the rate of those who were warned, indeed, and that is a sign. But most of them were not to be believers, and indeed your Lord, He is the exalted might, the Merciful. The Companions of the thicket of the forest denied the messengers, when sure I have said to them, will you not fear Allah, indeed I am to you a trustworthy messenger. So fear Allah and obey me. He looked at these stories at the same message was given by prophet after

01:32:55--> 01:33:38

prophet after Prophet, and I do not ask you for any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds give full measure, and do not be of those who caused loss, meaning don't cheat, don't be dishonest, and weigh with an even balance, and do not deprive people of their do and do not commit abuse on Earth, spreading corruption, and fear he who created you and the former creation, they said, You are only of those affected by magic. The people also responded in the same way human nature is the same. You are but a man like ourselves. And indeed, we think you are among the liars. You've just made all of this up yourself. So cause to fall upon us fragments of the sky if you

01:33:38--> 01:34:25

should be up the truthful, a little bit RLM ob matar Malone, he said, My Lord is most knowing of what you do, and they denied him. So the punishment of the day of the black cloud sees a gun. Indeed, it was the punishment of a terrible day. In the fee value column I a woman can mean indeed and that is a sign but most of them were not to be believers. What in Arabic Allahu Allah xizor Rahim and indeed your Lord, He is the Exalted in Might the merciful. These verses are repeated eight times in the solar eight times, that in the people of the past and in the creation that is around you, there are signs, yet majority of the people fail to benefit from those signs. And these signs

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

they reflect the might of Allah and the mercy of Allah both at the same time. But yet people fail to recognize their Lord. What you know who Lattanzi Laura biller, Al amin, and indeed the Quran is the revelation of the Lord of the worlds and this is enough virtue, that Allah is the one who has revealed this book. the trustworthy spirit has brought it down more virtue of this book, the best Angel delivered, intelligent breed when beginning the revelation process and the best month in the best night of the year, upon your heart, which is

01:35:00--> 01:35:46

The best part of the human body, Lita, Konami, dalmunzie, in that you may be of the Warner's. So it was revealed upon the best of the creation, a human being. And among them also, the best person Muhammad Sallallahu were to us alone, given to the best nation in the best city, and in this quote on is only virtuous, it's only important in every aspect. So truly unfortunate are those who fail to see the virtue of this call on and thereby fail to benefit from the good, which is in this poll on in a clear Arabic language. And this shows us the importance of learning the Quran in Arabic because this is mentioned so many times in the Quran. So remember, the person who learns the Quran and

01:35:46--> 01:36:27

teaches it, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Cairo comb mentai lemon for an hour Allah, when this Quran is so important than any person who learns it, and then they teach it, even if it's just recitation of it any, then such a person becomes the best. And indeed, it is mentioned in the previous. And indeed, it is mentioned in the scriptures of former peoples meaning in the previous scriptures. Also, the good news of the final scripture was given, how important is this book then? And has it not been assigned to them, that it is recognized by the scholars of the children of Islam, he didn't walk up in nofal recognize it. And even if we had revealed it to one among the

01:36:27--> 01:37:06

foreigners, meaning a non Arab, and he had recited it to them perfectly, they would still not have been believers in it. Thus have we inserted disbelief into the hearts of the criminals, they come up with one excuse or another. So they will not believe in it until they see the painful punishment, and it will come to them suddenly, while they perceive it not. And they will say, may we be reprieved? Can we have another chance? Can we have some time? So for our punishment, are they impatient, then Have you considered if we gave them enjoyment for years, and then there came to them that which they were promised, they would not be availed by the enjoyment with which they were

01:37:06--> 01:37:52

provided. So no matter how long a person enjoys life in this world, it is not going to ultimately benefit a person. So our main goal should be the life of the hereafter. And we did not destroy any city, except that it had Warners as a reminder, and never have we been unjust. And the devils have not brought the revelation down because this is what the people of Morocco would say. It is not allowable for them, nor would they be able, indeed, they from its hearing are far removed, meaning shayateen are kept away from even listening to the Quran. So do not invoke with Allah, another deity, and thus be among the punished one VEDA, Sheila carabin and warn your closest kindred, worry

01:37:52--> 01:38:33

about them, tell them and the Prophet salallahu already sort of did warn his family right after this verse was revealed he got up and he went and he said, Oh polish, save yourselves. I cannot save you from Allah. He said open your abdomen f i cannot save you from Allah or abass I cannot save you all Sofia, I cannot save you or Fatima I cannot save you. You will have to save yourself. Well, Phil, Jenna hacker, and lower your wing to those who follow you of the believers we see that the Prophet sallallaahu word is and was given this instruction. Many times in the Quran. They'd be humble with the believers, meaning be approachable. Don't be you know, up in the sky, like a flying bird. You

01:38:33--> 01:39:22

know, don't be so unapproachable and scary and arrogant that they're afraid to be around you rather welcome them. And if they disobey you then say indeed I am dissociated from what you are doing. What What can Allah Allah Aziza Rahim and rely upon the Exalted in Might, the Merciful. This is the ninth time the names lrcs of Rahim are appearing together in the sudo. Earlier we learned what in Arabic Allah hula Aziza Rahim your Lord is indeed surely he is the mighty, the Merciful. And here it is said, rely upon Allah Z's of our hain. Why? Because there is no safety, except with LR Z's, and levier aka hanaa Docomo, who sees you when you arise, meaning when you get up, meaning from your

01:39:22--> 01:39:59

sleep, or when you get up to stand before people to address them. Or when you're standing in prayer. Allah is looking at you with the Kaluga cafe Sadie and your movement among those who prostrate so he watches you when you're alone. He watches you when you are amongst people. And when you worship Allah in the who who was semi early and indeed he is the hearing the knowing the people of Mecca said that this Koran is just poetry and that you know, some shout liens and jinn they inspire Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam as the federal law so it is said Shall I inform you upon whom this

01:40:00--> 01:40:42

Devil's descend, they descend upon every sinful liar, the Prophet sallallaahu word isn't, is not a liar, and you know him, they pass on what is heard, they pass on what is heard meaning without any confirmation, and most of them are liars and the poet's only the deviator is follow them. And remember, the poets were the, you know, the speakers of that time, any people who are very famous, so only the deviator is follow them. Do you not see that in every Valley their role, meaning when they're saying their poetry, they talk about all sorts of random things in in one sentence and one phrase, they will bring Every valley together in every aspect together, and that they say what they

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

do not do, meaning what they say is not realistic at all, it is far from reality. And the Quran is not like that, except those poets who believe and do righteous deeds and remember Allah often and defend after they were wronged, and those who have wronged are going to know what kind of return they will be returned. So we see that apparently, it seems that poetry is being condemned. But remember that all poetry is not bad. Because poetry can actually be very effective. It can be excellent for self expression, and also for teaching important concepts. And this is why we see that there were people at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who are great poets, and

01:41:24--> 01:42:03

when they use that poetry in the way of Allah, to defend Islam, to defend the Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam any that was, that was welcomed. But when people used poetry, to, you know, to just waste their time, and to delve into, you know, useless things, then this kind of poetry is what is being condemned over here. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, it is better for a man to fill the inside of his body with pus, than to fill it with poetry. And this is something that we need to be careful about also, because you see the songs that we listen to, the rhymes that we listen to, they get stuck in our head. So at one time, you know, either it's those, those

01:42:03--> 01:42:50

soundtracks or those songs that are playing in your head or it is the words of Allah subhanaw taala. So be careful of what you listen to, because that will certainly have an impact on your thinking. Similar to Nemo Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim tahseen. These are the verses of the Quran and a clear book as guidance and good tidings for the believers. This is the Quran who then was Shah, who established prayer and gives a cat and of the Hereafter, they are certain in faith. These are the people who benefit from the Quran. On the contrary, indeed, for those who do not believe in the Hereafter, we have made pleasing to them their deeds, so they wander blindly. Those are the ones for

01:42:50--> 01:43:37

whom there will be the worst of punishment in the year and in the hereafter. They are the greatest losers, why? Because they never prepared for it. And indeed, you receive the Quran, from who, especially from the one who is Hakeem and Eileen, who is wise and knowing, you see how over and over again, through different ways we are being taught the words the status, the importance of the book of Allah, that this Quran is from Allah who is Hakeem, who is Eileen Haney, this is not the word of a human being, this is the word of Allah, and Allah is most wise, any, he is the one who has decided everything for you about you in your life and in this world, this is his hokum which prevails, and

01:43:37--> 01:44:27

he is I mean, he is knowing of everything. Do you doubt his words? He you have hesitation in accepting and following in reading his words, he what why deprive yourself. If columbu Salli ala he mentioned when Moosa said to his family, indeed, I have perceived a fire, I will bring you from their information, or will bring you a burning torch that you may warm yourselves and this is a testament to the care that musala Sena had for those around him. How he took care of his family, and then after that his people, but when he came to it, he was called bless it is whoever is at the fire. And whoever is around it was super Hannah, law hero Bella aalameen. And Exalted is Allah, Lord

01:44:27--> 01:45:00

of the worlds Subhana. Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Ameen. This is also a way in which we can glorify Alyssa. Generally when we say this via we say soprano law, or soprano law, he will be handy soprano Allah Hi, Darlene. And this is also based upon a little bit earlier mean. In fact, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say this in the night, that in the night, it'll be open. QRP said that I could. I would sometimes spend the night outside the door of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I could hear him saying in the night super happy

01:45:00--> 01:45:48

Allah Europe been around the mean. And he would repeat that for a while. So we should also repeat these words, especially when we're trying to fall asleep. Almost indeed it is I Allah, the Exalted in Might the wise, and he was told throw down your stuff. But when he sighed reading as if it were a snake he sighed, moving as if it were a snake he turned in flight and did not return a lesson almost. Fear not, indeed, in my presence, the messengers Do not fear, otherwise he who wrongs then substitutes good for evil. Indeed, I am Forgiving and Merciful, was our histogram he had made a huge mistake in his past, he had killed a man by accident. And any a person who you know who, who is very

01:45:48--> 01:45:53

honest, who is, you know, honest with themselves a person of good conscience

01:45:54--> 01:46:39

for them, if their mistakes they linger on, they don't just forget about them. So, it is as if, you know, his, his mistake was being hinted at that you don't need to be afraid now because yes, you made a mistake, but then you substituted it with good, you replace that evil with something good. So a person who follows a bad deed with a good one, or who fixes the mistake that he made, that Allah subhanaw taala is Forgiving and Merciful towards them. And this is any, it is so encouraging, because we cannot be perfect. We will definitely make mistakes any there is mistakes we make unintentionally, accidentally. We meant to do something else and we ended up doing something else

01:46:39--> 01:47:24

because we're human, we're completely imperfect. But then look at the way out that Allah subhanaw taala has created for us, a Llama Llama, some Ubud de la snan bar the zoo, replaced that evil with something good, and put your hand into the opening of your garment, it will come out white without disease. These are among the nine signs you will take to fit our own and his people. Indeed, they have been a people defiantly disobedient, but when they came to them, our visible signs they said this is obvious magic, and they rejected them. While their inner selves were convinced they're all they knew inside that it was true. It was not magic. They knew inside that this was divine. This was

01:47:24--> 01:48:08

miracle, but they still rejected out of injustice and arrogance. So see how was the end of the corrupters when I called attina, the Buddha was Sulayman or EMA. And we had certainly given to the Buddha and so they man knowledge Subhan Allah, Allah had given them many blessings, they were kings, they were prophets. They had their own unique strengths and miracles that are less powerful God had blessed them with, but out of all the things, what's the first thing that is mentioned here? The fact that Allah gave them knowledge. So remember, the blessing, the virtue of knowledge is above other blessings. You need knowledge is more important to other blessings that you have been given.

01:48:09--> 01:48:53

This is why the Prophet sallallahu Ernestina was told well, Cora will call or visit in your email that said, Oh, my Lord, increase me in my knowledge of Buddha Allah de la hora, and who narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, an A in dunya meluna. unquestionably, indeed the world is cursed, what is in it is cursed, except for the vicar of Allah, the remembrance of Allah and what is conducive to that meaning what helps you what is an assistant to you in remembering Allah in worshiping Him and where are the man Oh, man, and in knowledgeable person, and the person who is learning the person who is studying, any bs people are not cursed, otherwise, everything else

01:48:53--> 01:49:36

in the world, it is melatonin, it is cursed, which means that you know, it is attached with problems and discomfort, and, and all of that, and it is something whose benefit will not benefit who whose benefit will not continue for long, but when it comes to knowledge, and when it comes to the Kabbalah, then this is something you need that will continue to benefit a person forever. So Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that would insult a man and the fact that Allah gave them knowledge and they said, praise is due to Allah, who has favored us over many of his believing servants, they were given in Unreal Engine is that a person remains humble to Allah. This is real knowledge that a

01:49:36--> 01:49:59

person thanks and praises Allah. Knowledge doesn't mean that a person does not have time for ibadah know, when a person is truly knowledgeable, then they worship Allah, they glorify and they praise Allah. When a person is truly knowledgeable. They understand that what they know is from Allah, so they remain humble. And Sulaiman inherited that wood. He said, Oh people, we have been taught

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

The language of birds is power law. And we have been given from all things. Indeed this is evident bounty. You see, he is telling his people that Allah has given us these privileges. He's not boasting here. He's not making them proud here. Rather, he is reminding them that this is unfeasible. Maybe this is a less evident favor on us, that we should not take for granted. And gathered for so a man where his soldiers of the jinn and men and birds, what a massive army that must have been. And they were marching in rows, meaning they were organized, it was not a random crowd.

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

Until when they came upon the Valley of the ends, and and said, Oh, and enter your dwellings, that you will not be crushed by so a man and his soldiers while they perceive not. So panela and and recognized so a man or these sit up, and remember that an ant colony is actually a nation among the nations that glorify Allah, that is how the prophets Allah, whoever it is that I'm described it. So this end, you know, it didn't blame. instill a man listen and accept that perhaps they will trample over you, while they perceive now because they're not able to see you. So so a man or a son because Allah made him hear the conversation of the end. So the man are nice, and I'm smiled, amused at her

01:51:27--> 01:52:11

speech. And this shows is that the prophets of Allah would smile, even the Prophet sallallahu where it is, and it would, he would smile a lot. In fact, he would smile more than anyone else. And he would laugh, but occasionally, sometimes he would laugh to the point that his molars could be seen, but never with his mouth open so wide, that his uvula could be could be seen. So remember, lol laughing out loud. This is not from the Sunnah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he did not laugh mustard Mian meaning as if his all his entire body was involved like you know, really laughing uncontrollably that was not the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so smiling is a Sunnah

01:52:11--> 01:53:00

it is an act of charity. It doesn't break your fast, however, smiling must be according to the Sunnah also. So so the mannerisms smiled. He was amused at her speech and said, My Lord are a bl Zerhouni and Ashkelon, arithmetical Leti, an entirely wireless wireless, they are metal solid handle the word he liberal medical theory by the Casali hain, he said, My Lord, enable me, you control me to be grateful for your favor which you have bestowed upon me. As if he is asking Allah Yama, you control me that I don't want to become arrogant. So allow me to be grateful for your favor which you have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and allow me to do righteousness of which you approve.

01:53:00--> 01:53:22

And this should be our concern that we do actions which Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with, and admit me by your mercy into the ranks of your righteous servants, what a great king, and look at his humility. And he took attendance of the birds and said, Why do I not see the hoopoe? Or is he among the absent meaning he noticed one bird Hood Hood, it was missing.

01:53:24--> 01:54:09

So panela, I will surely punish him with a severe punishment or slaughter him until unless he brings me clear authorization. So we see that today manner is an M, he was a great king of a great kingdom. But he was also very, very vigilant, and very, very aware. And he was also very firm about the rules. But the hoopoe, the Hood, Hood state not long and said, I have encompassed in knowledge that which you have not encompassed and I have come to you from Subbu with certain news. Indeed, I found there a woman ruling them and she has been given of all things and she has a great throne. I found her and our people prostrating to the sun instead of Allah and shaitan has made their deeds pleasing

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

to them, and averted them from his way, so they're not guided. And so they do not prostrate to Allah, who brings forth what is hidden within the heavens and the earth and knows what you conceal and what you declare a law. There is no data except Him, Lord of the great throne. Subhana Allah, this is a bird and look at the birds observation. Birds are truly fascinating creatures and their vision, their observation, and it's amazing, because you see it said I helped to be mallam to help to be I have encompassed what you did not encompass and really birds are able to see what we are not able to see. Amazing. So a man earlier Sam said, we will see whether you were truthful or aware of

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

the liars, meaning we will investigate. Take this letter of mine and deliver it to them. Then leave them and see what happens.

01:55:00--> 01:55:39

They will return. She said, Oh, eminent ones indeed to me has been delivered a noble letter. Indeed it is from such a man. And indeed it reads In the name of Allah be Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. So please, when you send a letter, give a note to someone, send a message, make sure that you, I, you know, identify yourself. So they matter. Listen, I'm saying, This is from Sulaiman and begin with the name of Allah. And what was the message, be not hot, he'd be not arrogant with me, but come to me in submission as Muslims, because remember, he was a prophet of Allah. And so he invited them over here from a position of strength and power, because that is what Allah subhanaw

01:55:39--> 01:56:19

taala had given him. She said, Oh, eminent once advised me in your in my affair, I would not decide a matter until you witness for me, she takes their suggestions. And this is so important if you really want to rule people, if you really want to not rule people, any, if you want to lead them truly lead them, you know, lead their hearts, then it is important that everybody feels heard. And everybody feels involved. It should not be a dictatorship, even at home. You know, sometimes what happens is that when it comes to cooking food, you know, we just prepare whatever we want. And we tell people, well, you know what, too bad like it or leave it any take people's suggestions, get

01:56:19--> 01:56:59

them to be on the same page, whether it is a small matter or a big one. So we can see how she's not hasty she's very deliberate. They said, We are men of strength, and a great military might, but the command is yours. So see what you will command, we will accept your decision. She said, Indeed, Kings, when they enter a city, they ruin it, and render the honored of its people humbled, and thus do they do so it's better to come to some agreement, some kind of compromise instead of conflict. But indeed, I will send to them a gift and see with what reply the messengers will return. Again, we see that she is also very deliberate. She's not a tasty, but as I said, may Allah have mercy on her,

01:56:59--> 01:57:40

she was very wise, both in ship and in Islam. And in our basil de la hora, who said that she said this, she said to her people, that absolutely man accept the gift, that he is an average kink, and that you can easily find him. But if he doesn't accept it, that he is different than he is really a prophet, as he says, so we will obey him then. So when they came to Solomon, he said, do you provide me with wealth, but what Allah has given me is better than what he has given you. Meaning I'm not in need of this wealth of yours these gifts. Rather, it is you who rejoice in your gift, return to them, for we will surely come to them with soldiers that they will be powerless to encounter. And we

01:57:40--> 01:58:20

will surely expel them. They're from in humiliation and they will be debased. So they matter they slam said, Oh, assembly of gin, which of you will bring me her throne before they come to me in submission, a powerful one from among the gin said, I will bring it to you before you rise from your place. And indeed, I am for this task, strong and trustworthy. Meaning you can trust me I am capable of this. And I can bring it to you, within you know, a couple of hours before you get it from this meeting of yours. But then said one who had knowledge from the Scripture, and linear in the rainbow mineral Kitab, he said, I will bring it to you before your glands returns to you meeting within a

01:58:20--> 01:59:05

blink. You see there in knowledge is better than physical power, because one is able to accomplish with the knowledge, what they cannot accomplish with physical power alone. So it is said that this was gibreel, who had knowledge of the Book of the Scripture, and that is how he's praised over here. And when Solomon saw the throne placed before him, he said this is from the favor of my Lord has been followed Leela be, this is entirely a lost favor on me. I am neither worthy of it, nor capable of it on my own, nor have I done anything because of which I deserve this favor of my Lord, this is truly his favor upon me. And why is this favor given to me to test me whether I will be grateful or

01:59:05--> 01:59:47

ungrateful and whoever is grateful, his gratitude is only for the benefit of himself, and whoever is on grateful that indeed my lord is free of need and generous. So we see here that this will be near Mattila talking about the blessing of Allah. Remember, this is part of gratitude, and not talking about Allah as blessings shows that we don't recognize them, that we're not acknowledging them. He said disguise for her her throne, we will see whether she will be guided to truth or will be of those who is not guided. You see that sort of modernism is very deliberate and he is constantly testing and we see that the Queen of Sheba also she was also very deliberate. So when she arrived,

01:59:47--> 02:00:00

it was said to her is your throne like this? She said, It is as though it was it. And so we see over here that you can easily mannerless and I showed her it

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

Miracle by having the throne brought before she arrived. And we were given knowledge before her. And we have been Muslims in submission to Allah, and that which she was worshiping other than Allah had averted her.

02:00:16--> 02:00:58

And that and that what she was worshipping other than Allah had averted her meaning before from submitting to Allah. Indeed, she was from a disbelieving people. And that is why she was like that, but once she came to know of the truth, what happened? She was told enter the palace, but when she saw it, she thought it was a body of water, and uncovered her sins to wade through. Because, again, we see she was not hasty. She was very deliberate and careful. I'm sure narellan only hona. So he said, Indeed, it is a palace whose floor is made smooth with glass and it was so shiny, that it was reflecting the image. So she thought it was wet. She said, My Lord, indeed, I have wronged myself,

02:00:58--> 02:01:06

and I submit when the suit a man to the Lord of the worlds, so here, yes, she recognized the superiority of today man earlier.

02:01:07--> 02:01:46

But she didn't just surrender. She believed in Allah, she recognized the superiority of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is what the prophets came to do. Whatever they had, they use their power, their privilege, their resources to help people recognize the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala not their own personal glory. And we had certainly sent to some of their brothers earlier saying worship Allah. And at once they were two parties conflicting. He said all my people, why are you impatient for evil instead of good? Why do you not seek forgiveness of a lot that you may receive mercy, they said, We consider you a bad omen, you and those with you. He said, Your Omen is with Allah. Rather

02:01:46--> 02:02:23

you are people being tested, and they were in the city nine family heads causing corruption in the land and not amending its affairs. They said take a mutual oath by Allah, that we will kill him by night, he and his family, then we will say to his executer we did not witness the destruction of his family, we will lie and indeed we are truthful, and their plan to plan and we plan to plan. Well, they perceive not and the people of moko came up with a very similar plan to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but then look how was the outcome of their plan? They failed, that we destroyed them and there are people all of the Prophet sallallahu Ortiz Animoto, he fled Makkah, he

02:02:23--> 02:02:37

left Makkah in peace and security. So those are their houses desolate because of the wrong they had done. Indeed, and that is a sign for people who know you see here how we attend bml Lola mu, even our boss said,

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

I find and Allah His book that injustice destroys homes, and he recited this verse. So remember, injustice, oppression is something unlawful, and it ruins the family. So any kind of injustice whether it is verbal, or it is physical, against a spouse or children, it is not going to allow the house or the family to stay together, just injustice destroys.

02:03:04--> 02:03:45

And we save those who believed and used to fear Allah and mentioned loot when he said to his people, do you commit immorality while you were seeing? Do you indeed approach men with desire instead of women rather, you are a people behaving ignorantly. But the answer of his people was not except that they said, expel the family of loot from your city. Indeed, there are people who keep themselves pure. So we saved him and his family except for his wife. We destined her to be of those who remain behind and we rained upon them a rain of stones and evil was the rain of those who were warned. CODEL hamdulillah say All Praise be to Allah wa salam o nada arriba de la de nos buffer, and may

02:03:45--> 02:04:29

peace be upon His servants whom he has chosen, Allah who hired on Am I usually call and ask them is Allah better or what they associate with him? So the Prophet salallahu already sent him his talk to say this, and we should also say this, that first all praises to Allah, and then Peace and blessings upon Allah has chosen servants. Why, why should we say this, especially when you know a hope our speech is begun to seek the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala and generally also, this is a fact that we should remember that Allah subhanaw taala when he sent messengers, he sent messengers to guide people. So all praise to Allah for his kindness for his mercy for his generosity, and all and

02:04:29--> 02:04:57

maleness, penetrative, bless those people who endured such great difficulty who were so patient, in conveying God's message to mankind was Salam when Allah arriba de La Nina Stouffer Allahumma salli wa sallam, or then abena Muhammad wa ala early Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam inshallah we'll conclude over here so Chronicle lahoma will be handed a shadow a la ilaha illa Anta, a stone filco a tuple la casa la mar Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
