Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

Dr. melissani Yakubu Kohli, along with Matthew Colby was a deadly Sani was will schemata Colby amin Europa alameen.

00:00:38--> 00:01:26

We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he sent more either bingeable and Abu Musa Allah Shirdi both of them to Yemen and often they would meet one another and they would discuss their matters together. So one day more on the bingeable he asked Abu Musa that cave attacker Al Quran, how do you recite the Quran? Meaning given that you have so much work to do, at what time and in what way do you recite the Quran? So Abu Musa said I recite it our Eman Waqar Eden where Allah wa haloti that I recited while I am standing, I am sitting or writing my animal meeting as I'm going about in my day, whenever I find the time I recite the Quran and he said at times I recited at the

00:01:26--> 00:01:27

word fuckable

00:01:29--> 00:02:19

at the other for worku, the for walkin meaning at times I recited in, you know in intervals, you whenever possible for me basically. And then Abu Musab asked more of that, how do you recite the Quran. So he said that I sleep in the first part of the night. And then I get up after having slept for some time. And then I recite the Quran as much as I am able to whatever that Allah subhanaw taala has decreed for me. And I hope that Allah soprano tada will reward me for my sleep, and also for what I pray in the night. So we see over here two different people, you know, having similar work, but different, you know, different strengths. And this is why we see that one person, you

00:02:19--> 00:03:01

know, he is reciting the Quran in the night and another person is reciting the Quran whenever that they get a chance to do so. Which means that our ultimate goal, you know, our main goal should be to recite as much as possible. And don't compare yourself to people. rather focus on what you are able to do. And don't just wait for that perfect time when you can sit down, you know, without any distractions and you can recite the entire Jews, you know, in one setting, rather make use of whatever time that Allah subhanaw taala has given you. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at times he would recite the Quran, while he would be resting his head on the lap of our a

00:03:01--> 00:03:22

shuttle de la marinha. And then we see that once the Prophet sallallahu where he was sitting was heard reciting the Quran while he was writing his camel. So this shows us that we should just like the remembrance of Allah. We should also recite the Quran whenever that it is possible for us in sha Allah. Jews number 20

00:03:23--> 00:04:22

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. Amen holla Kasama YT will Aldo unzila la comida sama eema for embedded nabee he had a bada bada Jatin Maracana Allah come unto me to shadow raha Illa Humala balloon comb er de Lune is he not best, who created the heavens and the earth and sent down for you rain from the sky, causing to grow thereby gardens of joyful beauty, which you could not otherwise have grown the trees they're off? Meaning who is that being? Who is causing all of this to happen? Is there a deity with Allah? No, but they are a people who ascribe equals to him. The fact is that Allah subhanaw taala alone is the creator, he is highly kukuli shape. So whatever that we see, has actually been

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

made by Allah subhanaw taala. It didn't come into existence by itself. So when Allah alone is the creator, then that means that he alone is the one who is worthy of worship. So we should only worship Allah subhanaw taala because He alone is Allah. It is said here Isla whom Allah is there and Allah with Allah, meaning no, it is not possible. And remember that Illa literally means the object of worship, meaning the one who is worshipped. So it is not enough for us to believe that God is the Creator but that

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

He alone deserves worship. This is also something that is part of our belief. So believing in the oneness of Allah includes that we believe He alone is the Lord the Creator, and that He alone is the one who is worthy of worship. We learned in the Quran, that valley como la hora, bukem, La Ilaha Illa. Who Holly Coco Lee Shay, far, boo, that that is Allah, there is no god worthy of worship except he, He is the creator of everything, therefore worship only him. And this is why we see that all of the prophets of Allah, they invited people to worship Allah alone. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his main invitation was also to what to the worship of Allah. He said, What are you

00:05:48--> 00:06:33

what had Allah allow you shall accomplish a meeting. My message is that only Allah should be worshipped, that people should not associate anything with him. And this is the first message that people deserve to be told. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent Morag they'll do a lot more on who to Yemen. He told him that failure could actually matter the room, then that the first thing that you should call people to is that you Wahidullah, Darla, that they should worship only Allah, the Exalted, and when a person believes in this truth, and dies upon it, only then they are successful. We learn in a hadith that no servant says La Ilaha Illa sincerely with his heart, except

00:06:33--> 00:07:27

that the doors of the sky are opened up for him until it reaches the throne, as long as the major sins are avoided. In another head, these Weaver no servant says La ilaha illa Allah and then dies upon that, except that he will enter Jenna. Amanda Allen of the Colorado what Darla Helena hi and Hello, what Darla? Hello well see what Darla Beynon baja Elena how jeiza Isla, Houma LA, Bella XL, whom lay on the moon, is he not best who made the earth a stable ground, meaning who is it that has made this earth so stable beneath your feet? If you think about it, not only is the earth spinning at 1000 miles per hour, but it is also gliding through space at about 30 kilometers a second around

00:07:27--> 00:08:11

the sun. And then within the earth also there is so much movement, we see that there is magnitude to and smaller earthquakes that occur several 100 times a day worldwide. Yet this earth is stable, it is habitable, we don't feel dizzy, we don't feel like it is moving. So who has made this earth such and placed within it rivers, meaning fresh, flowing water, and made for it firmly set mountains and placed between the two seas a barrier so that the two waters don't mix immediately. And you can find freshwater even in underwater caves. So who is he? Is there a deity with Allah? No, but most of them do not know.

00:08:13--> 00:09:06

And may God will motala eva da, is he not best meaning Who is it? Who responds to the desperate one? When he called upon him? Way up? She was so and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah? Little Do you remember? Each person, you know experiences something of this nature in their life? That moment when they feel completely alone, when all material means have cut off, or they have failed? So this ailing, frightened, desperate heart, what does it do? It's creams for help for relief. And at times, there is no person in sight to even hear their screams to even console them. So in such a state, what does a person do? They call upon a law either there are

00:09:06--> 00:09:31

who they call upon Allah alone with the hate. And that is when Allah subhanaw taala responds to the smoke bomb this person who is desperate and yet she was so he removes the harm from him. So we also need to turn to Allah, no matter who we are, and no matter what we have done, because it hasn't been said over here, that he only responds to the believer or to the righteous, but to who?

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

The one who is desperate, either there or who when he calls upon Allah alone. So this is the key call upon Allah alone. And remember, the greater the difficulty is, the greater our dependence on Allah subhanaw taala is so in that state of law in that state of desperation, when a person calls upon Allah, then Allah responds to them. So keep calling upon him. Is he not

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

Best, who guides you through the darkness of the land and the sea, and who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy? Who is he? Is there a deity with Allah, hi is Allah above whatever they associate with him? Is he not best, who begins creation and then repeats it? Meaning Allah subhanaw taala is the one who creates and then recreates any the cycle of creation, and it keeps repeating itself generation after generation. And then also when something dies, Allah subhanaw taala revives it any we see how trees die and then Alice pans out and revives them every single year for us to see. And then on the Day of Judgment, he will also resurrect the dead, and who provides for you from

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

the sky and the earth? Is there a deity with Allah say, produce your proof, if you should be truthful, say none in the heavens and earth knows the unseen except Allah, and they do not perceive when they will be resurrected. Meaning those that you call upon, or those who think are creators or providers are actually themselves dead, they themselves are in need of Allah subhanaw taala you simply are maintaining life, you think that they can help you believe Docker evohome fill a hero, rather their knowledge is arrested concerning the Hereafter, meaning they don't know anything about it, meaning they don't know when the hour is going to be. And this is a knowledge that people cannot

00:11:32--> 00:12:13

discover why because it is in the unseen and the intellect, the mind cannot reach the unseen, rather, they are in doubt about it, meaning they have no faith in it, rather, they're concerning it blind. And this is why they don't even prepare for it. So the fact is that only Allah subhanaw taala knows about when the Day of Judgment is going to be an hour obsession should not be to figure out when the Day of Judgment is going to be because you see anything strange or anything unusual that happens in the world. A lot of people you know, they become obsessed with you know, the the Day of Judgment is very near. Now, this is a sign of the hour. This is you know a sign of the Day of

00:12:13--> 00:12:59

Judgment. The Day of Judgment is certainly coming. There is no doubt about it. And when people ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when the Day of Judgment is going to be once a man asked he said what are the what is it that you have prepared for it? So that is what we should be focusing on? Not which day which year which century? You know, that should not be our concern. Our concern should be preparing for our and those who disbelieve say, when we have become dust as well as our forefathers will be indeed be brought out of our graves. We have been promised this we and our forefathers before. This is not but legends of the former peoples meaning they don't believe in the

00:12:59--> 00:13:46

hereafter they think it's just folklore, say travelled through the land and observe how was the end of the criminals meaning you can see what became of the people who denied the our one at the Hacienda la him and oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Do not grieve over them. What are the configurations by pain, nor be in distress, Maryam Kowloon from what they conspire, meaning you have done your part in conveying the message. Now you don't grieve and you don't be in distress. Now this is something very, very important that we must try to bring ourselves out of grief. Meaning Yes, we will be sad. But it is important that we don't dwell in that sadness and distress. Along with that

00:13:46--> 00:14:29

sadness, we still have to strive to do our work. Because if we dwell in that state, in that sadness, in that distress, we won't be able to do anything. Remember that the different emotions that Allah subhanaw taala has created within us, he there for a reason. It is that that there are three parts to an emotion. And the first is a subjective component, meaning how you experience the emotion. So for example, you feel very sad, or you feel very angry. And that feeling is something that you experience. Secondly, there's a physiological component, meaning your body also reacts to that emotion, for example, you're feeling very sad and, and you know the trees, sorry, tears start, you

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

know, coming into your eyes. And then there's the expressive component meaning how you behave in response to that emotion. So you may not have control over how you experience the emotion and how your body reacts to it. For example, you cannot eliminate the sadness in your heart, nor can you control those tears and that heavy breathing, but you certainly have control over the expressive component of your emotions. And that is what you say and what you do and that

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

times, remember that what we feel meaning our emotions are actually a result of our judgment. So for example, if we interpret a situation as upsetting, but then we also realize that it is not all that bad, then yes, we may feel sad as a result of our judgement. But we may not feel angry, or at least our sadness will not be extreme. So to not grieve and to not be in distress, we need to do two things. First is try to change the way that you interpret the situations that you are in trying to give a positive spin, find the good in that situation, find that light, because b&e can hide in Allah's hand is all good, and in tomorrow's to do useful with difficulties ease. And then secondly,

00:15:47--> 00:16:33

instead of finding those tears, and pretending like you're not sad, or you're not upset, focus instead on your expression and your response. So for example, you're overwhelmed with grief, with worry, and that feeling is inside of you that emotion is inside of you. There is no running away from it. Then what you do choose to focus on the expression. For example, make the make liquid and then be more deliberate and be more careful about what you say and what you do. Way aluna mata hadn't word and they say, when is the fulfillment of this promise, if you should be truthful, say perhaps it is close behind you some of that for which you are impatient. And indeed your Lord is

00:16:33--> 00:17:20

full of bounty for the people. But most of them do not show gratitude. And indeed, your Lord knows what their chests conceal, and what they declare, and there is nothing concealed within the heaven and the earth, except that it is in a clear register. So realize that every detail is known to Allah subhanaw taala. And he it is happening with his knowledge by his permission, so trust him in the handle, and indeed, this Koran relates to the children of Islam eel, most of that over which they disagree. And indeed, it is guidance and mercy. Little meaning for the believers. Notice how this is only for the believers, because they are the ones who benefit from the Koran. Indeed, your Lord will

00:17:20--> 00:18:07

judge between them by his wise judgment. And he is the exalted in the knowing fatawa Karla law, so rely upon a law, learn to rely upon the law, soprano, tada and this is the way out of many problems, that you put your faith in Allah, you entrust your affair to him, that Allah will take care of this matter, I have done my part. But there is nothing else that I can do beyond this point. So now, I put my trust in Allah, that he will take care of my situation. This is similar to how you know when the laws pensado protects you. But if there's ever a legal case that you're involved in, you know, that you cannot handle that matter yourself. So this is why you go hire a professional, you go hire

00:18:07--> 00:18:51

a lawyer, to defend you or to fight for you. Because you know, that you cannot do that yourself. And just like that, you do your best, you know, you do whatever you can to the best of your ability. And then where you see your limit, where you see, you know, a something that prevents you from you know, going forward. Now you know that things are beyond you. That is where you must depend on Allah subhanaw taala indeed you are upon the clear truth. Indeed, you will not make the dead here, nor will you make the deaf hear the call when they have turned their backs retreating. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been consoled over here that you are upon the truth, and you are

00:18:51--> 00:19:35

doing your job. The problem is actually in these people who are alive, yet they are dead. How are they dead, that they fail to understand and see and benefit from what you're telling them. It is as if their hearts are dead, they're lifeless. And then it is as if they are deaf meaning they don't hear anything. Even though you're calling them you're calling them so clearly. woman to be handler Oh Youngblood Allah to him, and you cannot guide the blind away from their error. You will only make here those who believe in our verses. So they are Muslims, meaning those who surrender to Allah are the ones who benefit from the guidance which is in the Quran. This is the key those who surrender to

00:19:35--> 00:20:00

Allah, which means that if a person refuses to submit to Allah, instead they want to follow their own desire, then you cannot help them and when the word befalls them, meaning when the day of judgment will be near them what will happen, we will bring forth for them a creature from the earth adab bottom up, just like the camel was brought out from the mountain for the people of

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

The mood close to the Day of Judgment, it creature is going to come out of the earth and this creature is going to be speaking to them, it is going to talk to people. And what is it going to say? saying that the people were of our versus not certain in faith. So in Hades, we learned that the sun will rise from the west, and one day, this creature will come out of the earth, meaning it will emerge before the eyes of people, they will see it coming out, and it will talk to people and it will tell people to believe so we see that when there will be no people left to do a little bit more aloof to command what is right to forbid what is wrong to call people to worship Allah soprano

00:20:42--> 00:21:28

Tada, then look at allows mercy, Allah will send an animal even as a final proof against humanity. And very soon after that, the hour will begin and warn of the day, when we will gather from every nation, a company of those who deny our signs, and they will be driven in rows, until when they arrive at the place of judgment, he will say, Did you deny my signs while you encompass them not acknowledge when I'm due hateful behavior Illa, meaning without even enough evidence or research or knowledge? You had the audacity to deny my versus any, you did not even give them the due attention that they deserve? You just outright denied them? or What was it that you were doing? Remember that

00:21:28--> 00:22:14

any person who denies the Quran, who claims that there are, you know, errors in the Quran, or that odd is, you know, it's it's not factual? It has, you know, scientific errors, etc, then such claims are actually based on ignorance, or on lack of evidence, remember that the put on is not a book of science, it is a book of signs. So when certain things regarding the creation are mentioned over in the Quran, we're not being given lessons in science, that, you know, this is how the earth is, and this is how it spins. And this is what happens. And this is what happens. That's not why the Quran, the Quran mentions signs from the perspective of the viewer, meaning from our perspective, how we

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

see things and why so that we can understand them, we can relate with them. And this is how the Quran is relevant to all people, people who have you No, never studied any science and people who have, you know, studied a great deal of it, ie the Quran is relevant to all people. And so this is why, you know, people just look at the surface of certain verses of certain words, and they say, Oh, this is an error, this is an error, this is an error. And when people deny with, you know, in this manner, the fact is that they haven't bothered to pay attention to the Quran, they haven't reflected deeply enough. And even if they say that there's something in the Quran, which contradicts, you

00:23:00--> 00:23:45

know, science, for example, then the fact is that whatever we know of science is just based on our observation. And science is built on the premise that, you know, we will continue to observe, we will continue to test, we will continue to research, right. And based on that, we will keep revising what we know, meaning science is meant to be humble, right? It's meant to be self correcting. This is this is the whole premise. So why is it that when we see something in the Quran that appears to be non scientific, we jump to a conclusion, why don't we accept that humility, that humility, that perhaps we don't know enough, yet, perhaps we don't know everything yet, we need to study a little

00:23:45--> 00:24:31

bit more research more, and over time, perhaps we will gain clarity. So remember, one is the Quran, this is Revelation, this is from the creator of the universe, and it cannot have errors in it. And the other is what we have understood based on our limited observation, our limited knowledge, and we should be humble about that, that you know what, we know this, but yes, it could be wrong. So we will keep our eyes open, we will keep researching we will keep studying, so that we can increase in our understanding. But this should not lead to arrogance, that we go on denying the Quran and the decree will befall them further wrong they did and they will not be able to speak meaning on the Day

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

of Judgment, they won't be able to defend themselves then do they not see that we made the night? Do they not see that we made the night that they may rest they're in and the day giving sight indeed in that are Signs for people who believe and warn of the day the Trumpet will be blown, the horn will be blown and whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth will be terrified except whom Allah wills meaning only those who illustrate

00:25:00--> 00:25:50

Karnataka gives security to will be secure and safe, and all will come to him humbled. And you see the mountains, thinking them rigid, while they will pass as the passing of clouds, meaning this is what will happen to mountains on the Day of Judgment, they will be blown away. It is the work of Allah who perfected all things. Indeed, he is acquainted with what, indeed he is acquainted with that which you do, Mangia or bill has sanity fellow who Hiraman ha, whoever comes with a good deed will have better than it will whom in fuzzer, anioma, even me known, and they from the terror of that day will be safe. Remember, any good deed that a person does? Then Mangia a bit, hasn't it?

00:25:50--> 00:26:39

Follow Hiram minha, meaning the reward will be better than the good that a person has done. We do little and the reward from Allah is always greater, because he is the rich, the generous, the appreciative, his reward is better than our effort in this world. So often, you know, the work that you do is way better than the pay you get for it, or the credit, the praise that you get for it. Sometimes you don't even get acknowledged for the work that you do. But the good that you do for Allah subhanaw taala, then remember, his reward will be better than your work, because your work can have deficiencies, his reward is perfect. Your work can be little, his reward is not it is abundant,

00:26:39--> 00:27:26

your work can be temporary, but his reward is not it is eternal. You say one word Alhamdulillah. And Allah fills the scales for you a small word, a huge reward, you recite 10 verses in the night. And he gives it to him for a reward, a heap of reward, which is better than the world and everything that is in it. So even when you do a little bit Alyssa penalty on his reward is generous. So the reward of Allah is better than the action that you do the word that you say that the code that you make, the approval of a love for the slave is better than the action of the slave is better than the effort of the slave. Because Allah rewards 10 times for one good deed, the reward is multiplied 10

00:27:26--> 00:28:10

times. And if you think about it, a person believes and does good for a very short duration. Any Think about it, any a yellow Mar do that? A few days, right? A short life of maybe 60 years, 70 years, 20 years, so proud a lot. And in that also for how long is a person you know, doing a bad job or doing something good for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you can easily you know, count that time you can easily quantify that effort. It's very easy to do that. But the reward that Allah subhanaw taala gives a level above it is everlasting. It is eternal. So He rewards for the little things. Also, we learned in the Hadith that whoever removes something harmful from the road of the

00:28:10--> 00:28:53

Muslims, that Allah subhanaw taala will record it has enough for him and whoever is such that a hustler, a good deed is recorded for him. Then Allah will admit him into Jelena. We learned another Hadees that almost Pankaj has said that whoever does a good deed, then he will have 10 times it's like, or I will increase that even more. And whoever does evil, then he will only have its equivalent, or I will pardon Allahu Akbar. And whoever comes with an evil deed, their faces will be overturned into the fire Are you recompense except for what you used to do? Meaning This is justice. You get what you deserve. This is what you brought upon yourself. say oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:28:53--> 00:29:38

wa sallam, I have only been commanded to worship the Lord of the city, who made it sacred and to whom belongs all things, and I am commanded to be of the Muslims of those who submit to Allah, what an attorney will call on and I have been commanded to recite the Quran, and whoever is guided is only guided for the benefit of himself. And whoever strays say I am only one of the Warners. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was instructed to recite the Quran, meaning to keep on reciting it. Why, in order to keep inviting people to it. So keep delivering the message. Even if people are turning away, you keep reciting the Quran to them. Why? Because the Quran is sufficient. It is

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

perfect. It is enough to invite people to guidance because sometimes what happens is that you know, you when you try to do something one way and it doesn't work, you know, you change your strategy. You come up with something that is better. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only use the Quran from the first day to the last day to invite people to Allah soprano Tada. So what actually was

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

Hold on, and this shows us the perfection of the Quran, which means that we should never get bored of it, we should never get tired of it. We should never think that all I have read enough Quran now, I have, you know, recited it enough number of times now I should perhaps move on to something else. No, you never move on from the Quran, you move with the Quran. You never say that I used to recite the Quran? No, you continue to recite the Quran. And along with that, yes, you do other things in life also. And it is 100% possible to do that. So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is told that you should recite the Quran. And this shows us that he was to recite the Quran, over and over

00:30:43--> 00:31:23

again. Why? Because when you do that, then the truths and the messages that are contained within within the Quran become manifest to you time and time again. You know, in one month, when you recite a certain ayah, you understand it differently because of the situation that you were in. And then when you recite the same ayah, let's say after a year, or after a couple months, given that your situation is different, or given that you have learned something else recently, that will add to your understanding of the Quran, to the benefit that you take from the Quran, this is why keep reciting it, keep learning it and the Quran is mobarak right mobarak is what something whose Baraka

00:31:23--> 00:32:10

whose benefit is endless, any the good that you derive from it, it just keeps growing. It just keeps increasing. So what an actual Quran, keep reciting keep reading, why, for your own benefit. And it also shows that recite the Quran to yourself and also to others. Because sometimes what happens is that we we want to recite the Quran only, you know, in privacy, we don't want people to listen to us. So we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the person who recites the Quran in a loud voice meeting such that others can hear them, then he is like the person who gives charity openly. And the person who recites the Quran quietly, meaning in their own privacy so that

00:32:10--> 00:32:55

nobody can hear them is like a person who gives charity secretly, so both are permissible. The main thing is our intention should be sincere. And this shows us the importance of listening to the Quran. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said I was taught over here to recite the Quran to people, meaning people need to listen to the Quran. Because yes, when you recite the Quran, it benefits you. But there's a completely different benefit you derive by listening to the Quran. So listen to the Quran also, work on it hamdulillah and say All praise is due to Allah, He will show you his signs, and you will recognize them and your Lord is not unaware of what you do. So little causes

00:32:55--> 00:33:44

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim porcine meme tilka Isaiah tolki, terrible movie between. These are the verses of the clear book, we recite to you from the news of Moosa and fit our own In truth, for the benefit of a people who believe meaning there is a huge lesson in the story of Messiah and for our own, for who, for people who believe in Allah. What is the story, it is that indeed find our own exalted himself in the land and made its people into factions, meaning he divided them up. And that is how he ruled them, oppressing a sector among them, how he was slaughtering their newborn sons and keeping their families and keeping their females alive. Indeed, he was of the corrupters. So we see

00:33:44--> 00:34:29

that to gain power to keep his power. He divided the people into factions. So there was a great political divide. There were those who loved fiddletown will literally worshipped him, there were his supporters. And then there were those that he oppressed that he had enslaved. And these were the bunnies saw him, and he had made them into sheoran, as it is said in this ayah and this word, she is it means into factions, but it also means Cheyenne, which has dried up grass and thin and you know, twigs, basically that are used to light fire. Why? Because they burn very quickly. So people were like weightless firewood before fit our own worthless and powerless, their lives were being wasted

00:34:29--> 00:34:59

away. So he divided them. Why so that they could not unite against him. They were busy fighting one another. So how could they think of holding him responsible? And also, if you think about it, to portray himself as a hero he needed he needed a villain. So he criminalized half of his people, blaming them for every evil that existed, and so he slaughtered their boys, and he kept their females alive in order to oppress them in order to perhaps

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

control their population alone are them what the reason was, but any heat tyrannized them.

00:35:06--> 00:35:40

And we wanted to confer favor upon those who were oppressed in the land and make them leaders and make them inheritors. A low above any look at how hard fit our own was trying to oppress the Bani Israel to, you know, subjugate them to keep them as slaves and to deprive them. But Allah subhanaw taala wanted something else for the bunny is slavery. So remember, even if the whole world were to gather together to harm you, they would not be able to harm you except with what Allah subhanaw taala has already decreed for you.

00:35:41--> 00:36:20

And if Allah subhanaw taala wishes to benefit you, and everybody tried to prevent that from you, any they wouldn't be able to prevent it, Allah subhanho todos will, will prevail and and establish them in the land, and she'll fit our own and his minister Harmon and their soldiers through them that which they had feared, you see for their own and his people, they feared losing their power. And that is exactly what happened. And this was the plan of Allah subhanaw taala if you think about it, Allah subhanaw taala could have said Khan and one day if Iran could have died and his entire, you know, people could have been ruined. But Allah subhanaw taala brings about change gradually,

00:36:20--> 00:36:57

progressively. Why? In this is his mercy upon both parties, those who are committing oppression, and those who are being oppressed. How is it mercy for those who are committing oppression, because they get a chance to recognize their errors to write their wrongs, but for their own, you see how Musashi Sam came showed him miracles he fit our own saw sign after sign after sign if you wanted to accept the truth he could have accepted in the first moment, but he didn't. So when Allah subhanaw taala punished him wasn't that punishment justified? This is how Allah subhanaw taala executes his plan.

00:36:58--> 00:37:44

Now some of us remember is a story of Musa alayhis salaam, and we see a huge role played by multiple women in the life of Masada Hassan. So the story of Musa SNM begins with a woman also, Allah, Allah says what oh hanaa Isla ami Moosa and of the E. And we inspire to the mother of Moosa that you should suckle him, you should nurse your baby. So we see here that Allah subhanaw taala inspires good things in the hearts of his believing servants, even though they may not be prophets. So Allah subhanaw taala inspired her put her in her heart that she should nurse her baby Moosa that she should nurse him so that he is not hungry, she should nurse him so that he gets used to her milk,

00:37:45--> 00:38:31

and she should nurse him because the mother's milk is best for the baby. So nurse him on demand, and right before leaving him for either 50 or Li, but when you fear for him, that fit our owns men will find him and kill him. Because remember that people have had our own would, you know, go go out looking for, you know, little boys, and basically infants, and then kill them. So when you fear for his life, when you fear that his life is in danger, then what should you do? You should cast him into the river, Allahu Akbar, throw him in the river in order to save him. Honey, it's amazing. You would think that your baby is safe in your arms. But no, here the baby was safe in the water, not in

00:38:31--> 00:39:14

the arms of the mother. While at the half he will let the honey and do not fear for his life and safety and do not grieve over being separated from him. Why because Inaba do have a lake. Indeed, we will return him to you, which are Illumina and more saline. And we'll make him one of the messengers. So what happened then, and the family of our own picked him up meaning out of the river, so that he would become to them an enemy and a cause of grief, indeed, for their own and Harmon and their soldiers were deliberate sinners, Allahu Akbar, for their own, his family found baby moose on the water, they picked him up. And they adopted him, and for their own had no idea that this very

00:39:14--> 00:39:59

child would become his enemy and a source of grief for him. So we see that Allah subhanaw taala saved Musashi Salaam by using our own by using the enemy of masala his Salah. And we learned in a Hadees, that Allah subhanaw taala may support his religion with an unchaste, evil, wicked person even meaning Allah subhanaw taala can use anybody to accomplish his goals. So never be content with the fact that you are doing something religious, or that you are helping a good cause. Yes, that is excellent. But what matters more is that your effort is accepted by Allah, because only then will it be rewarded by Allah. And remember, efforts are accepted by Allah when they're done for his

00:40:00--> 00:40:44

sake and in the way that he has legislated so that our own his family picked up baby Moosa, what happened and the wife of her own said, He will be a comfort of the eye for me and for you, meaning she brought the baby in. And of course for their own when you recognize that this child was at the bunny ears, so he, he was he had ordered that the baby be killed. So she said, let Dr Lu who don't kill him, perhaps he may benefit us, or we may adopt him as a son, and they perceived not, they had no idea who that child was. So for their own agreed to keep baby Moosa. But notice how us here the wife of her own, she said, that this baby is over to finally wellock that he is a comfort of the eye

00:40:44--> 00:41:29

for me and for you, meaning for our own admitted, this child is so cute, any, it's amazing how any this woman convinced her husband, to not kill this baby. A lot of times, you know, women complain that my husband doesn't listen, he doesn't, you know, agree he's very difficult to deal with. But the thing is that you should know how to talk to him. never hesitate speaking your mind, never hesitate expressing your wishes. And we see over here the importance of giving good suggestions that even though you fear, you know, you know that people, you have that strong feeling that people are not going to breno perhaps listen to you still keep suggesting good things. Because no matter how

00:41:29--> 00:42:14

corrupt people are, there can still exist within them good individuals. So those good individuals, when our last panel, it gives you a good thought a good you know, idea, and don't hold back, the little good that you can do can also make a huge difference, it can at least minimize the evil. So we see over here, this is the second woman who is playing a role in saving moosari his salon. And we see that the first woman was who the mother of massages and she did not have much authority. And as he also she did not have much authority. But she spoke she did what she could do. Now on the other hand, what was happening, and the heart of musala, asylums, mother became empty of all else. And

00:42:14--> 00:42:51

imagine if she found out that her child when she discovered that her child had been was now in the house of her own, she was trying to save her baby from her own and her baby ended up in the house of her own. She was about to disclose the matter concerning him, had we not bound fast her heart that she would be of the believers. Because you see if she panicked, that my baby, my baby, the people would have found out and then musar isn't it would certainly have been killed. So Allah subhanaw taala gave her that courage to remain patient over there to remain quiet. And she said to his sister, follow Him, follow Him, meaning go follow the baby and see what's happening. So she watched

00:42:51--> 00:43:36

him from a distance while they perceived not. And what did she see? And we have prevented from him meaning from musar. Listen, I'm all wet nurses before, meaning most artists would not take, you know the milk of any woman. You see a baby recognizes his mother's scent. So musante salon refused every nursing woman that was brought to nurse him. And can you imagine the chaos, there is a crying hungry baby in the palace, because the Queen has just adopted him. So you can imagine the chaos one woman after the other you know, people are coming to, you know, console the baby to nurse the baby, but the baby is rejecting everyone. So these people were desperate for help. And in that instance, what

00:43:36--> 00:44:16

happened? So she meaning the sister of most artists, and I'm said, shall I direct you to a household that will be responsible for him for you while they are to him for his upbringing sincere. What an intelligent girl, you know, she brought them so much relief over here. So we see this is the third woman now who is playing a role in saving musalla history. So we restored him to his mother, it was just a matter of time within a very short time. Baby Musa was brought back to his mother, that she might be content and not grieve, and that she would know that the promise of Allah is true, but most of the people do not know. They don't know that unless promise is true, which is why they never put

00:44:16--> 00:44:59

their faith in a lie in the first place. They never take that you know that bold step in the first place. So remember, it is the belief in the truthfulness of Allah's promises that allows a person to make a sacrifice that allows a person to take such bold steps. And you see sometimes a person has to let go of something they love. They have to put it in the river for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and what happens Allah subhanaw taala gives them what is even better. So we see here that not only was Musashi sin and returned to his mother, but now because she was you know, taking care of the royal baby, any She was also being paid for it. So

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

She was now being paid to look after her own child soprano law. He alone does not close one door with his wisdom except that he opens to with his mercy. This is something that we must believe in. Remember that at sonho davia Romano de la Mora who was very, very upset. It felt like such a big failure, that the Muslims were not able to do aroma, and they have to agree to a treaty that seemed so unfair. And Allah subhanaw taala revealed at that time, enough attention Allah Catherine Medina, that we have given you a clear victory. So Romano de la Mourinho asked, Is this a victory? And he was totally Yes, it is. Because not only did the Muslims get to do oma insecurity The following

00:45:44--> 00:46:29

year, this peace treaty opened the door to so many victories, eventually leading to the conquest of Makkah. So remember, when a door closes, when an opportunity is no longer there, then this is when you're supposed to expect the very, very best from Allah and nothing else. Nothing else. Look at the mother of moosari isn't any there is that waiting time in the middle where you have to be patient. And patients over here means you believe in Allah promise, you don't lose hope. And you keep doing what you're supposed to. And Allah subhanaw taala will open the gates of His mercy upon you. And when he attained his full strength, and was mentally mature, We bestowed upon him judgment and

00:46:29--> 00:46:45

knowledge, and thus do We reward the doers of good. So we see here that most artists Anam was given hillclimb, he was given good judgment and also knowledge and he was a Merson, he was excellent, and this is reason why I'm most proud of rewarded him with that.

00:46:47--> 00:47:01

Now what happened, and he entered the city at a time of inattention by its people, and found there in two men fighting one from his faction, meaning one was from Bani Israel, eu, and one from among his enemy, one was of the people.

00:47:03--> 00:47:51

And the one from his faction, called for help to him against the one from his enemy, so Maasai Salaam in order to help him he struck the other guy, and unintentionally killed him without his son and said, this is from the work of shaitan Indeed, he is a manifest misleading enemy. This shows us how strong Musashi Sena was any it's it's as if he he almost recognized how strong you know how much strength Allah subhanaw taala had given him he only intended to strike that men but that one blow you know it it killed them in soprano law, that this was accidental murder and musar histogram call this the work of shavonne Why? Because remember, Allah subhanaw taala has created us upon a good

00:47:51--> 00:48:34

sound nature. Our fifth is supposed to be saline, it's supposed to be good and sound there is good within us and then it is shaped upon that urges us to do what is wrong. So color be in new Welcome to Neff. See, follow fiddly. Follow, follow Allah musar Listen, I'm sad, my lord. Indeed I have wronged myself. He confessed that he Arab I have made a huge mistake. What have I done fulfilled Lee so forgive me. And what happened? Allah forgive him. Indeed he is the Forgiving, the Merciful. Mossad exam didn't justify it. But oh, I never intended to kill him. He didn't deny it. Because murder is murder, even if it's accidental. So he asked Allah for forgiveness, and he confessed

00:48:34--> 00:49:17

before Allah. Remember, it is only Estefan that through which we can be saved from the consequences of our sins. Qatada said that by Allah Musashi said I knew the way out of difficulty. This is why he asked for forgiveness. So when you do something wrong, and you will because you're human and sometimes you know there's accidents bad bad accidents, may Allah protect us. But sometimes these things happen. So what is the way out immediately turn to Allah soprano tada Yeah, Allah forgive me. Yeah, Allah, I made such a huge mistake. And you see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was Marisol. He was completely innocent of sin. Yet he would seek forgiveness more than 70 times a day.

00:49:17--> 00:49:57

And when his companion Abubakar, Dylan Warren, who so righteous and pious, when he asked him to teach him a dog that he could say in Salah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam taught him to say I love them but in the Lenin to nuptse that will Allah Indeed, I have wronged myself lunamon Kafeel on a lot of wrong a lot of injustice. Meaning I've committed many many sins against myself, while I young Pharaoh de Nova Illa, anta and there is no one who can forgive sins except for you fulfill Lee so forgive me mouthfeel or terminar Indyk in a forgiveness that is especially from you, me, when it will be from you then it will be great forgiveness and that is what I need. What how many and then

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

after that have mercy on me also enough

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

Until a photo of our human DD we're Forgiving and Merciful. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah is amazed at his servant when his servant says La ilaha illa Anta in the code Islam to Neff See, fellow fiddley, the newbie in the Himalayan field, Luba Illa.

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

Allah, Allah says, My servant knows that his Lord can forgive him and can punish him too. So this is why he has asked me for forgiveness. So Allah, Allah is amazed any he likes this when a servant says this that all others know God worthy of worship, but you I have wronged myself, so forgive my sins, because no one can forgive sins except for you. Mussolini's and I'm said, My Lord, for the favor that you bestowed upon me, I will never be an assistant to the criminals. This is repentance, that a person seeks forgiveness for what was done, and then they promise never to repeat that crime again. But then you see musar Listen, I miss tested. Because, you know, when we recognize our mistake, and

00:51:00--> 00:51:42

we seek forgiveness, we say that Oh Allah, I repent to you, then Allah, Allah will test you are you really sincere in your repentance? So what happened was on his Salaam, he became inside the city fearful and anticipating exposure, when suddenly the one who sought his help the previous day, cried out to him once again, the same guy now he was fighting someone else. So most artists that have said to him indeed, you are an evident, persistent deviator. Again, you're fighting. And when he wanted to strike the one who was an enemy to both of them, needing to stop the fight, he said, almost, do you intend to kill me as you killed someone yesterday, he exposed Masada, Santa, you only want to be

00:51:42--> 00:52:23

a tyrant in the land and do not want to be of the offenders. SubhanAllah Mossad. Islam had helped him the day before. And now what was this guy doing? He was turning against massages. And this is how many people are, they use you, and then they turn against you because they will only use you to their advantage. They don't care about you. And a man came from the farthest end of the city running because now the matter had been exposed. He said almost Indeed, the eminent ones are conferring over you intending to kill you. Because you see musasa even though he grew up in the house of our own, he was clearly from the bunny his heartbeat, right? And so of course there were people who didn't like

00:52:23--> 00:53:08

him. And so they just needed an excuse, you know, to to to kill him. So leave the city this man said indeed I am to you have the sincere advisors just leave from here because if you stay, they're coming to get you they're gonna kill you. So masahisa nam exactly where he was he left. He didn't even go anywhere. He left the city fearful and anticipating apprehension. He said My Lord saved me from the wrongdoing people have been a genie meaning comilla worldly mean. You see how Masada Sam is constantly talking to Allah, any at every step, there is a mistake he calls upon Allah, his mistake doesn't get exposed. He thinks Allah right. And now that he's in difficulty, then he turns back to

00:53:08--> 00:53:56

Allah will a method with johathan madeon. And when he directed himself toward Medea, meaning that's the direction that he began traveling in Allah, He said ourselves to be a de Silva, a Sabine, perhaps my Lord will guide me to the sound way, meaning I put my trust in Allah. And I hope I believe I ask that Allah subhanaw taala will guide me to the sound way, meaning the most correct way that will lead me straight to my goal without any hardship. Any the most direct and easy way. Just about everything means that this means make me go on a path that is suitable that is easy, a road that is easy without any difficulty, and will lead me to my goal meaning that will save me I will

00:53:56--> 00:54:39

really be saved from this trouble. So most artists are called upon Allah, and he made his way towards Medan. And when he came to the well of Medan, he found there a crowd of people watering their flocks. And he found aside from them to women driving back their flocks. So he realized instantly that something was not right. Because, you know, if people have brought their flocks to a watering place, then why are these ladies you know, keeping their flocks away? So what's happening? So he took notice, and he went up to them and he said, What is your circumstances? Everything okay? How come you're not able to water your animals. They said we do not water until the shepherds

00:54:39--> 00:55:00

dispatch, meaning with their flocks. And it shows us how modest these women were that they did not like to go into the crowds of men and some women Subhana Allah they will push and shove men to reach the height of a sweat. Remember, even if we're doing something good, we must do it the right way. And our father is an old man so he is not able to bring the

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

flock here, we have to bring it. So what most artists do, he said, he saw he watered their flocks for them, meaning without even they're requesting him and without even you know, setting a, you know is some kind of compensation. He just took their flocks and took them to the water watered them and then he went back to the shade and said a lot be in nee Lima and delta Ella Yemen Highland fucky he said, My Lord, indeed I am for whatever good you would send down to me indeed again he is talking to Allah subhanaw taala This is one of the best things that we can do when we're alone was our listener was alone. So you see how he's calling upon a lot over and over again he's talking to a lot and what

00:55:45--> 00:56:32

is this girl that Oh Allah, I am in need of any good you can send my way I am copied. And remember when a person shows their fuckin their poverty their neediness before Allah and then asks that almost Panasonic accepts their request. This is a way of inviting the last panel Tara's mercy. Because remember, Dora is all about showing humility to Allah Subhana toaster, he said there is no way that can draw a person close to Allah than the way of exhibiting dependency and poverty. So for example, when you're making Dora don't just go on asking, say, Oh Allah, I don't know, teach me, Oh Allah, I have done wrong, forgive me. Or Allah, I am a need fulfill my need, or a lot, I am hungry.

00:56:32--> 00:57:13

You know, sometimes you're tired, you're hungry, and you have to do so much work still, you know, you need something you need clothes. Yeah, Allah, I need clothes. You know, express your, your humility before Allah go to a lot as a beggar. Don't go with pride, go to him as a as a beggar someone who is desperately in need, because that is truly our state. In our heads, we learned that our last panel, tada is merciful, he is generous. And he feels shy, that his servants should raise his hands before him. And he does not put something good in them. You see what a beggar you know, extends their hand before you begging you asking you to put something in their hand, what do you do,

00:57:13--> 00:57:58

sometimes you put something in their hand and other times you don't, Allah subhanaw taala does not like to return that hand empty handed, he will put something in it. So begging him, ask him as a beggar. And then we see the dignity of lusardi his son in this in this ayah that how, you know he took the flock, watered them and then returned the flock and then went back, you know, to the shade and sat over there, meaning he did not hang up with the girls. He did not ask them for some compensation. Nor did he you know, take their flock or he nor did he bother them. He just did the work and you know, left them. And this is real manliness that gave what you want to give, offer what

00:57:58--> 00:58:16

you want to offer and then back off, do not invade a woman's personal space or privacy. So what's your number? So where do you live? Are you married? If you want something good, please ask Allah subhanaw taala. But don't go on doing inappropriate things. Just because you got a chance to help someone

00:58:17--> 00:59:06

who then one of the two women came to him walking with shyness, honesty here is the here is to observe a great deal of HIA and what is high up composure, Grace, modesty. So she came here, as if she had full mastery over it any a perfect display of modesty and acquiring rights as if hideout was an animal and she had its harness in her hand. And she was not coming across as someone who's very weak or meek. You know, when we think of shyness, we think it is like that of jasmine, you know, Jasmine and Aladdin. Right that that is almost flirtatious. That is not China's that's the exact opposite of Hyatt. She walked guarding her modesty because she realized that she had a presence. She

00:59:06--> 00:59:53

was not walking provocatively she did not come in that manner at all. And she walked on us to hear some say Allah means in spite of meaning because she had to and there are times when you know you must do something no matter how shy you feel. So yes, you you go and do what is necessary, but then you don't lose your modesty in that process. Because remember, hire me man go together, we'll hire hire on colo hire is all good. And when one when a man when one of the two leaves meaning if a man leaves that hideout will also leave and if hire leaves and a man will also leave and hire remember it is a virtue that leads to paradise because it guards against sin and indecency. So she said,

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

Indeed, my father invites you that he may reward you for having watered for us will silence

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

I'm so fortunate, Allah subhanaw taala makes and meet such good people. Any this lady was first of all modest and confident. Her father is a man of dignity, that he appreciates the kindness of the stranger and wishes to pay him. So in musar day Sam came to him, he didn't refuse any if he was being offered a reward and he was in need. So he accepted it musala sam came to him, and related to him, the apostles the story, the man said, fear not, you have escaped from the wrongdoing, people. This is so beautiful. The first thing he does is that he comforts most artists and them that now you are not in the land of fit our own, you are safe here. One of the women said, All my father hire

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

him. Indeed, the best one you can hire is the strong and the trustworthy, meaning he doesn't have any place to go. And he's certainly very capable. It is said that Musashi said I'm in the process of watering their animals, he had moved a huge boulder that typically multiple men would push together. So she had seen his strength. And really, we have seen how Masada was very, very strong, he just punched one man and the man died. So she said that he is strong and trustworthy. And this shows us that strength and trustworthiness are two qualities because of which a person should be hired, because of which a person should be given. You know, some work, a lot of times we get attracted to

01:01:29--> 01:02:09

people's, you know, physical appearance, or the connections that they have, or the bribe that they can offer. But that is not what matters. What matters is, do they have to work and do they have a manner. These are two very important characteristics. And this is truly a rare combination in people. Romano de la Mora who would say that Oh Allah, I complain to you of the power of the sinful and the weakness of the reliable any there are so few people that I can find who are fit for the work that I want to assign the father set to Masada, his son, and indeed, I wish to wed you one of these my two daughters on the condition that you serve me for eight years. So prior to law, any, the

01:02:09--> 01:02:54

father was also a very intelligent man, he wouldn't just hire, you know, a man, well, he has two daughters, because that would cause any problem. But if you complete 10, it will be as a favor from you. So he gave him a choice eight years or 10 years. And I do not wish to put you in difficulty, meaning I'm not forcing you, it's totally up to you, you will find me if Allah wills from among the righteous, you see, musala salam was in need. And this family was also in need, right? And look at how Allah subhanaw taala brought them together. So the fulfilment of one person's need was in being with the other. This is, this is so beautiful, Allah subhanaw taala has not made us perfect in the

01:02:54--> 01:03:36

sense that each and every single one of us has their deficiencies, has their weaknesses. And sometimes, you know, we resent our weaknesses, that why why why am I like this? Why has it made me like this? Or why why is there you know, this thing missing in my life. But remember, as human beings, we are meant to compliment one another. Allah subhanaw taala has created a healthy dependency within people that we are in need of one another. So you cannot survive on your own. We must learn to exist with people, we must learn to live with them. And remember that if you know living with with people, you know, for example, when it comes to marriage, yes, there are you know

01:03:36--> 01:03:49

that those unpleasant things also, but there's also the fulfillment of many other needs. So you see how both of these parties now were a perfect complement to one another.

01:03:50--> 01:04:33

On allelic, Albania, Albania, Musashi, Sam said that is established between me and you, whichever of the two terms I complete meaning eight or 10 years, there is no injustice to me. I think it's very fair. And Allah over what we say is witness. So now we see that musasa now he gets a job, a job security, family housewife, he is completely settled. And again, we see the role of a woman over here where this lady she suggested to her father that please hire him keep him don't don't lose him. So how did this begin? How did Mussolini's Sam have so many, you know, supporters in the journey and how allows parents to help him in so many different ways? Because first of all, this was a loss

01:04:33--> 01:04:59

plan. He Allah subhanaw taala wanted to help and rescue the bunny his saw and that was going to happen through Musashi salon. And then we see that Masada is Sam, especially when he when he left Medina, he put his trust in Allah. He put his trust in Allah. He didn't pity himself. And because of that, when he got the opportunity to help someone to women who are in need, he came forward and he assisted

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

And what happened when he helped others, Allah subhanaw taala also helped him. And this is something important that we need to remember that when we are in difficulty, let us not just be celebrating our pity party. No, we must put our faith in Allah and we must see what we are capable of doing, what benefit we can bring, and you don't know because of how you help someone, Allah subhanaw taala will help you. So don't be stingy over there. Don't become selfish over there. Be good to others, show them mercy and Allah subhanaw taala will show mercy to you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah will remove from him one of the

01:05:40--> 01:06:25

groups of the day of judgment and whoever alleviates the need of a needy person. A love will alleviate his needs in this world and in the hereafter. And when Masada Salaam had completed the term, he fulfilled his commitment. And in a Hadees we learned that this was the longest of the meaning 10 years he stayed and was traveling with his family. He perceived from the direction of the mount a fire, he said to his family stay here indeed I have perceived a fire perhaps I will bring you from there some information or burning wood from the fire that you may warm yourselves. But when he came to UC Masada Sam is truly a man any he doesn't send his wife that Okay, go Go check who's

01:06:25--> 01:07:05

there and bring some fire because unfortunately, this is what many men do. They just like to be at home and the women are always going out running the errands, bringing groceries, cooking food, picking up the dishes, any the profits of the novel or to send him some knows what that he would serve his family. This is prophetic son, that the prophets of Allah looked after their families. But when he came to it, he was called from the right side of the valley in a blessed spot from the tree or Moosa. Indeed, I am Allah, Lord of the worlds, and he was told, throw down your staff. But when he saw it, moving as if it was a snake, he turned in flight and did not return a lesson almost

01:07:05--> 01:07:47

approach and fear not, indeed, you are of the secure, insert your hand into the opening of your garment, it will come out white without disease, and draw in your arm close to you as prevention from fear. Meaning whenever you feel afraid or anxious, then then do this. Draw your arm close to you. And this is something that we do in Salah out so that we put our arms, you know close to close to ourselves. And this is something that really calms the person down. For those are two proofs from your Lord to fit our own and his establishment. Indeed they have been a people defiantly disobedient will Sorry, I said I've said my lord indeed I killed from among them someone and I fear that they

01:07:47--> 01:08:30

will kill me and my brother Houghton is more fluent than me in tongue. So send him with me as a support verifying me indeed I fear that they will deny me Allah spawn tada said we will strengthen your arm through your brother and grant you both supremacy. So they will not reach you. Meaning a loss of data will protect you. It will be through our signs that you and those who follow you will be the predominant but when lusardi son came to them with our signs as clear evidences they said, this is not accept invented magic. And we have not heard of this religion among our forefathers. And most artists that I've said, My Lord is more knowing than we are you have who has come with guidance

01:08:30--> 01:09:16

from him and to whom will be the succession in the home. Indeed, wrongdoers do not succeed and find our own said, Oh, eminent ones, I have not I have not known you to have a god other than me Look at how insecure Finn Arlen is then ignite for me, Oh, hi man, a fire upon the clay and make for me a tower, a tall tower, that I may look at the God of Musa and indeed I do think he is among the liars. So if you're always making fun of masayoshi son, I'm here. And he was arrogant. He and his soldiers in the land without right. And they thought that they would not be returned to us. So we took him and his soldiers and threw them into the sea. So see, look, how was the end of the wrongdoers? And

01:09:16--> 01:09:58

we made them leaders inviting to the fire. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will not be helped. And we cause to overtake them in this world a curse. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will be of the despised. So this shows us that we should not follow people blindly. And we see how Allah subhanaw taala brought this tyrant down. And we gave most of the scripture after we had destroyed the former generations as enlightenment for the people and guidance and mercy that they might be reminded this was the purpose of the book and you or Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were not on the western side of the mount when we reveal to Moosa the command and you are not among the

01:09:58--> 01:09:59

witnesses to that meeting.

01:10:00--> 01:10:43

You weren't present there to witness all of that. How did you know? Through revelation, but we produced many generations after Moosa and prolonged was their duration. And you were not a resident among the people of Medina. reciting to them our verses, but we were senders of this message to you, it is Allah who has informed you of the story. And you are not at the side of the Mount, when we called Musa but were sent as a mercy from your Lord to warn the people to whom no warner had come before you that they might be reminded. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't see it himself. He didn't read about it on his own. He didn't hear about it from anybody This was based on

01:10:43--> 01:11:20

on revelation only. And if not that a disaster should strike them from what their hands put forth of sins. And they would say, Our Lord, why did you not send us a messenger? So we could have followed your verses, and been among the believers? So why is it that Allah subhanaw taala has sent this revelation as guidance for people so that on the Day of Judgment, people don't have an argument. They don't say that oh, we never knew. But when the truth came to them from us, they said, Why was he not given like that which was given to Musa meaning? How come the Prophet sallallahu oralism didn't perform similar miracles like you know, a stick a staff turning into a snake, then it would

01:11:20--> 01:11:58

have been easy for us to believe also, it has said, Did they not disbelieve in that which was given to Musab before did for their own believing that? They said there they are the two works of magic supporting each other. And indeed We are in both disbelievers. Say, then bring the scripture from Allah which is more guiding than either of them that I may follow it if you should be truthful. So the people of Makkah denied not just the Quran, but also the Torah. So it is said that, okay, this is not good enough for you then bring something else. But if they do not respond to you, then know that they only follow their own desires, meaning they don't actually follow guidance, they're

01:11:58--> 01:12:43

actually following desire. This is the real problem. And a lot of people make the same mistake. They don't follow in, they follow desire, and who is more astray than one who follows his desire without guidance from Allah. Indeed, Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. So it is very important that we don't leave knowledge and follow desire. This is very dangerous. And part of this is that once we learn what the prophet sallallahu wasallam has taught, then we don't disregard that and start coming up with other things and following other things. No, we must always follow what the Quran says what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and we and we have repeatedly conveyed

01:12:43--> 01:13:25

to them the Quran, that they might be reminded those to whom we gave the scripture before it, they are believers in it. So yes, there were people from among a little Kitab who when they learned about the Quran, they believed in it, he was okay but nofal in Medina there was 11 Sonnambula de la Mourinho. And when it is recited to them, they say, we have believed in it, indeed, it is the truth from our Lord. Indeed, we were even before it, Muslims meeting, we had already surrendered to Allah. So now that a new scripture, a new message has come from Allah, we believe in that also, again, we surrender to Allah, those will be given their reward twice, because when a person from the People of

01:13:25--> 01:14:07

the Book accepts Islam, then they get double reward for what they patiently endured. And because they avert evil, through good, and from what We have provided them, they spend any something very beautiful has been mentioned over here, double reward for what for the fact that they believed for the fact that they were patient, for the fact that they spend out of what Allah has given them. And then something is mentioned in the middle, which is where the owner bill has entered this a year. they repel evil through good meaning when someone harms them, that they bear that pain, but they respond in a better way. Meaning what happens typically is that if someone hurts us, we try to take

01:14:07--> 01:14:52

revenge immediately. And sometimes in taking revenge, we become worse than the harm that was, we become worse than the person who harmed us, right? We do more harm to them than the harm that they did to us. Or what we will do is we will just be quiet. We won't say anything, right? We will just mind our own business. But here we see that they repel evil with good energy. This is another level of air sign that if someone has hurt you, you actually say nice words to them in response, you actually smile at them, you actually do good to them. And for this a person needs a whole lot of determination and self discipline. And when they hear ill speech, they turn away from it and say,

01:14:52--> 01:15:00

for us are our deeds and for you or your deeds. Peace be upon you. We seek not the ignorant meaning we don't need to fight over

01:15:00--> 01:15:41

Here, we don't want to fight in Nicoletta demon above, indeed, or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. You do not guide whom you like. But Allah guides whom He wills and he is most knowing of the rightly guided. You see, when you learn you're naturally worried about your loved ones that they should also know. They should also pray. They should also do good things. But sometimes you keep saying you keep telling them, but they're not interested. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was delivering the message, and some of the closest people to him, the people that he loved a lot did not believe. And of course, that was Abu Talib, his uncle, that even at the deathbed of

01:15:41--> 01:16:22

doubleton of the prophets on a novel already sent him kept urging him say the Kadima just say law, in law in the law, but he refused to say it, because of what Abuja Hall and his friends were telling him. So the fact is that you cannot guide those whom you love. Guidance has only in the hand of Allah, the Exalted, and he knows who is deserving of guidance. And they say, if we were to follow the guidance with you, we would be swept from our land, meaning if we follow Islam, if we become Muslim, then we will suffer a lot of those parents are the says, Well, I'm Noah Killa. Home, how long have we not established for them a safe sanctuary, to which are brought the fruits of all

01:16:22--> 01:17:03

things as provision from us, but most of them do not know. Any look at your present situation and look at your past? is Allah subhanaw? taala? Not the one who has been providing you? Is he not sure? rasik? Is he not your provider? So what do you think if you worship Allah subhanaw taala you think I was going to abandon you? He is still your Razzak. If he has given you so much, when you were ignorant, when you didn't know any better when you are doing something wrong? Then what do you expect from Allah? subhanaw taala? Isn't he going to still give you once you know, once you seek him once you worship Him? And how many a city have we destroyed? That was insolent in its way of living?

01:17:03--> 01:17:46

That we are an economic force, and we can do whatever we want. And those are their dwellings which have not been inhabited after that, except briefly, and it is We Who were the inheritors, meaning so many examples are there before you will people. There were nations who were proud of their worldly advancement of their money of their success. But look what happened? Did it last forever? No, it didn't. So don't compromise on, you know, don't, don't give up worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. For the dunya, because this dunya is not meant to stay. And never ever be deceived by what you have. It is from Allah, and he can take it away whenever he wants. So don't forget to love because of these

01:17:46--> 01:18:31

things. And never would your Lord have destroyed the cities until he had sent to their mother, meaning a central town, a messenger reciting to them our verses, because then the message can disperse. It can spread to different places, and we would not destroy the cities except while there are people were wrongdoers, and whatever thing you people have been given, it is only for the enjoyment of worldly life and adornment some attacker will hire to dunya was enough to have one more in the law higher or whatever call and what is with Allah is better and more lasting. So will you not use reason? Any Think about it. One is a house that we make here in this world with the little

01:18:31--> 01:19:12

money that we have. And one is the house which is supposed to be in general, and that is supposed to be made with our deeds. What is in this world is just going to help us here a little bit, it's going to decorate us here a little bit and it's going to come to an end. But what is with Allah the home of the Hereafter, that is way better. And if you were to walk around your house right now, would you find any problems in your house, maybe there's a leaky faucet, maybe there's, you know, a wall, the painter which has just ruined, or maybe, you know, the carpet is now getting old or maybe you know there, there's things that are not functioning properly in your house and you see that. So our

01:19:12--> 01:20:00

concern should not just be our worldly homes, use these blessings to earn the home of the Hereafter, then is he whom we have promised a good promise which he will obtain, like he for whom we provided enjoyment of worldly life, but then he is on the Day of Resurrection among those presented for punishment in hell. And Warren of the day, he will call them and say Where are my partners which we used to claim, those upon whom the word will have come into effect will say, Our Lord bees are the ones we lead to error. We lead them to error just as we were in error. We declare our dissociation from them to you. They did not use to worship us. Look at how people

01:20:00--> 01:20:42

will be abandoned then, and it will be said invoke your partners and they will invoke them, but they will not respond to them because they don't even exist. And they will see the punishment. If only they had followed guidance and mentioned the day he will call them and say, What did you answer the messengers? How did you respond to the call of the messengers, but the information will be unimpaired to them that day, so they will not be able to ask one another, meaning they won't be able to respond. But as for one who had repented for a moment, Tabitha, what am I gonna wear Amina solly ha. But as for one who had repented, believed and unrighteousness it is promised by Allah that He

01:20:42--> 01:20:44

will be among the successful

01:20:45--> 01:21:31

what a book is, loco Masha, oh, well, and your Lord creates what He wills and chooses not for them was the choice. It is entirely Allah subhanaw taala his choice, Exalted is Allah and high above what they associate with him. So we see here that Allah subhanaw taala chooses what He wills, He creates what He wills, He chooses what He wills. People don't have that choice. Unless parlato chose jabril. He chose Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, ne he chose the month of Ramadan, we don't make these decisions. Allah subhanaw taala does, and whatever Allah decides whatever he chooses, is truly the best. And this is why when we have to decide something, also, when we have to choose something, what

01:21:31--> 01:22:13

should we do? We should ask Allah subhanaw taala for help, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for hate, for goodness, which means that we should make istikhara we consult people, of course, we ask them for their suggestions. But then don't forget to ask Allah subhanaw taala because we don't always know what is best for us. Allah knows what is best. We are limited in our knowledge in our perception. Allah subhanaw taala knows everything. So how is it that we should do is to huddle pray to the car yourself yourself, which means you don't need to hire anybody. You don't need to ask people to make a staccato for you, you do it yourself. And the Prophet sallallahu radiocentre would

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

teach the companions is to kata exactly as he would teach them the assuta from the Quran meaning that he would emphasize it he would teach people to make us to holla so make it yourself and read it as you read the Quran yourself. So when there is something that you know, that you you need to decide, then consult people you know, think about the matter. And then once you once you are inclining towards a certain decision, then before you actually make that decision, make a staccato ask Allah subhanaw taala to put clay in your decision is to hora doesn't mean that you will praise the heart and then all of a sudden you'll have a dream or you'll have some, you know, Revelation and

01:22:54--> 01:23:33

then that will tell you, this is best for you. No, is staccato literally means seeking goodness. Meaning when you're making the decision, you're praying to Allah subhanaw taala that Yeah, Allah make this good for me. Meaning This is what I think is good for me. Make it good for me also. And even when you're doing something good, meaning even when you're deciding to do something good, that at that time also praise to write, like for example, we learned about saying ability a lot more unhappy than when she was, you know, sent a proposal from the prophets of Allah who were designed for marriage she said, I am not going to do anything until I seek my lord's decision. So she went to

01:23:33--> 01:24:19

her Masjid meaning the place where she used to pray and she performed is the hora so mama never be shows that this shows that even in sorry mama No, he said that this shows that even when a person is intending to do something good, they should pray is the hotter any is better. So Yeti for example, you're going for Hajj, you know you have made the decision you have you know, paid for it, etc. But then again you still make a staccato because you're asking a lot to make this decision. Good for you. And the Dorado is the hora inshallah you can find it in any, you know, book, any app inshallah, where there are the rods from the Sunnah. One of the scholars said that any person who prays is

01:24:19--> 01:24:59

staccato, and consults people, and then is steadfast in what he does, then he will never face embarrassment, meaning that he will not regret Allah subhanaw taala will bring good to this person. And sometimes it happens you make a decision based on the best of your knowledge, you know, consulting people, you praise to harder, and then you suffer, right meaning, for example, things don't always work out in your favor. Yes, it seems as though things are not working out in your favor, but in reality that is still good for you. And your Lord knows what their chests conceal and what they declare and He is Allah there is no danger.

01:25:00--> 01:25:43

accept him to him as do all praise in the first life and the hereafter, and his is the final decision. And to him, you will be returned, say, Have you considered if Allah should make for you the night continuous until the Day of Resurrection? What data other than Allah could bring you light? Then will you not here, say, Have you considered if Allah should make for you the day continuous until the Day of Resurrection? What data other than Allah could bring you a night in which you may rest, then will you not see, and out of his mercy he made for you the night and the day, that you may rest there in and by day seek from his bounty and that perhaps you will be

01:25:43--> 01:25:43

grateful?

01:25:45--> 01:26:31

What a blessing of Allah, any so many blessings we take for granted. The night is also a blessing. But sometimes we complain about it. The day time is also a blessing, yet we complain about it. So the fact is that we don't always know or perceive what is best for us. And we see over here the blessing of the night, the blessing of the day. They both serve a purpose. And we learn over here in this ayah that Allah has made the night for what four liters Goofy, right so that you may rest there in any the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He He said that beware of conversing after the night is still meaning don't spend your night in chit chat. Spend it in resting. Right? And then during

01:26:31--> 01:27:12

the day in the morning, especially the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Oh Allah bless my people in their early mornings. But our problem is we like to chitchat at night. And then right after budget we like to sleep. So then how can we have blessing and Warren of the day, he will call them and say Where are my partners which we used to claim and we will extract from every nation a witness and say produce your proof and they will know that the truth belongs to Allah and last from them is that which they used to invent. Now the story of our own has given, indeed, our own was from the people of Moosa, but he tyrannized them, and we gave him of treasures whose keys would burden a band of

01:27:12--> 01:27:56

strong men there upon his people said to him Do not exalt Indeed, Allah does not like the exalted. He was from the bunny his thought he, yet he turned against them. And there are people like that who turn against their own people. And the last parameter had blessed him with a lot of wealth, so much that we see here a band of strong men would just carry the keys, and he think about the treasures now. But what did he do? He used to exalt he used to show off, he was very, very proud. So his people said, Don't exalt because Allah, Allah does not like Fatih hain. You see the fun, the happiness, the joy, that leads the person to gratitude, that is good, but the happiness that makes a

01:27:56--> 01:28:24

person proud, boastful, making him forget Allah soprano, tada, then this kind of happiness is not good. So we should also check ourselves that when we become happy over something, what kind of happiness? Is that? Is it that I'm feeling so proud of myself that I'm the best, or I am something great? Or is it that I'm happy for the blessing that Allah Subhana Allah has given me so the words of sugar and haven't come out of my mouth, we need to keep that eye on ourselves, you know, we need to check ourselves.

01:28:26--> 01:29:07

We see that in general also any? Absolutely, we should be grateful for the blessings that Allah Subhana Allah has given us, but we should never feel, you know, boastful about them, or extremely proud of them. That Oh, I'm so happy I have this I have that any all of our happiness should not be based on material things. Because sometimes these material things can actually be any a source of punishment for a person, as we have seen in in the previous rulers. This is why we learned that the righteous they would actually worry, when they had a lot of wealth. They didn't become arrogant and boastful over there, they became worried. We learned the thought of having to obey the law, once he

01:29:07--> 01:29:54

looked very upset. So his wife asked her that asked him, so once we learn that palha even obey the law. He looked very upset. And his wife noticed that so she asked him that, Did I do something wrong? He said, No, you are very good wife. But the thing is, that I have so much wealth now that I don't know what to do with it. She said Don't be upset, call some people and distribute it. And that is what he did. SubhanAllah the companions, they got worried when they had a lot of things. WebRTC FEMA attack Allah with data, but seek through that which Allah has given you, the home of the Hereafter, meaning it's not evil to be rich, but making this world your only focus that is not

01:29:54--> 01:29:59

healthy. And yet do not forget your share of the world. What is your share of the world

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

It is your the time that you spend the effort that you spend in doing good things in using the blessings of Allah lawfully, Yanni, what they're telling him basically is that don't indulge so much in the blessings that Allah has given you that you forget about the afero that you forget about doing good things. And he don't just consume everything here. Don't just consume everything here, prepare something for your future also.

01:30:31--> 01:31:12

And this is very important that we need to remember also, that the good things that are lost parents are has given us they're not just for us to enjoy here. So all of our time should not just be going in, you know, preparing delicious foods and then eating them and then enjoying them and then cleaning up after that and then the cycle repeats itself. No, we should also be making some time for a bother for the recitation of the Quran. Yes, eat good food. But that should not be your only concern. You weren't just created to enjoy good things in life. You were created to do Arsalan to the to worship Allah subhanaw taala and yes, you see Allah subhanaw taala approval through the

01:31:12--> 01:31:45

things that you do any when you do them in the right way with a good intention. We do them for the approval of Allah soprano Tara, you do them in the way that Allah Allah has legislated, you will be rewarded. But remember, there are different degrees, right? meaning all good deeds are not of the same level. So also make time to do things which will bring you more reward. And this is especially relevant to you know, women, especially these days, you know, sometimes you don't always get the time to,

01:31:47--> 01:32:21

you know, make sure that, you know, for instance, pray in the night or recite a lot of the Quran. So yes, you should be more deliberate and conscious when you are looking after your family and make that intention sincere for the sake of Allah. Tada, do that in the best way possible. Absolutely. inshallah, you will be rewarded for that. But then also be honest with yourself, be honest with yourself, you know, just because you're a mother doesn't mean that you now have the license to or now you are not required to recite the Quran anymore, or that now you're not required to make the could anymore, that now your children are your ultimate focus, because Allah tells us, let duly come

01:32:21--> 01:33:02

and welcome Allah, Allah to come and clean, do not let your children and your wealth distract you from the remembrance of Allah. So be honest with yourself, and see where you have the time, that free time, where's that time going? Any, you know, as women, we make time out to, you know, do our makeup and hair etc. And sometimes we can spend hours doing such things. And we let us be honest with ourselves, we also have to make time for a bother. And yes, it can be challenging, yes, it can be a bit difficult, but push yourself a little bit. And you will find that time you will be able to and you know what, when you will recite the Quran, your children will also learn it's important when

01:33:02--> 01:33:47

you will make the cut, your children will also make the cut. So be a role model, right? Be a good example for your children. And it is possible to do that. So they told they advised him that don't forget your share of the world. Meaning don't just, you know spend your life in enjoying good things here also worry about the home of the hereafter. Because in our heads, we learned that the wealthy people will have little reward on the Day of Resurrection except upon whom Allah has converted goodness. And then he's he spends it to his right his left in front of him and behind him, meaning he keeps spending it in good causes. And this is how such a person will be successful.

01:33:49--> 01:34:33

And remember, we are going to be asked about where we spend our time and you know our wealth, how we earned it, and where we spent it. And they told him and do good as Allah has done good to you, and desire not corruption in the land. Indeed, Allah does not like the corrupters and he Allah has been good to us so you also be good to others. And in addition, we learned that Allah subhanaw taala has selected certain people for his blessings, why in order to benefit His servants through them. So he keeps giving them as long as they keep spending on Allah's creation. But when they become stingy, when they become selfish when they stop giving than Allah subhanaw taala also takes those blessings

01:34:33--> 01:34:59

away from them and gives them to someone else. So this is why they reminded him do good as Allah has done good to you. And desire not corruption in the land, because Allah does not like the corrupters. And you see when a person is just focused on fulfilling their desires, right, their pleasure. And especially this happens this becomes even more tempting when a person has a lot of money. Right? Then now a person is buying this product and that product and that

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

product. And now one thing after the other, look at the garbage that we produce and tell me what is this garbage except for facade anywhere? Where is all that plastic going? Where is all that garbage going? Is? Isn't that destroying our planet? So just because the Lord has given you money, it doesn't mean that you spend it on every desire. No, you spend it on your needs, absolutely you do. But then remember that these blessings were not given for you to enjoy life here. Allah subhanaw taala gave you these blessings so that you make an even better home for yourself in the hereafter. So do good to others as Allah has been good to you, and do not do not spread corruption in the lead,

01:35:44--> 01:36:03

because I lost friends on it is not like that. He said cardones response was, I was only given it because of knowledge. I have a stuff that Allah, he said, This is mine. So I can do whatever I want. I earned it, I deserve it. And I can do whatever I want. You don't tell me how I should spend my money.

01:36:04--> 01:36:46

It is said Did he not know that Allah had destroyed before him of generations, those who are greater than him in power and greater in accumulation. But the criminals about their sins will not be asked any? Didn't they earn a lot of money also? Yes, they did. What happened? Did it save that? No, it didn't. So a person should never ever be proud of the knowledge that a lost parents art has given them. And the ability the opportunities that almost Panther has given them. And never think that just because Allah has given you a blessing. Now you can do whatever that you want with it. No, Allah, Allah gave it and he will question you about it. So one day qarun he came out before his

01:36:46--> 01:37:31

people in his adornment. So those who desire the worldly life said, Oh, would that we had like what was given to our own If only we had the same. They felt that yearning, that greed in their heart, indeed, he is one of great fortune. But those who had been given knowledge said, Woe to you, the reward of allies better for he who believes and does righteousness, and none are granted except the patient. These are true, older alien people of knowledge, who remember they're in when they need it, and they don't get affected by the wealth of the wealthy. And it is said here, what are you the AHA Illa sabi rune any the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believe and do good, but none

01:37:31--> 01:38:22

can believe and do good except for those who are patient. Patience is needed to learn patience is needed with Eman patience is needed in order to do good deeds, and we cause the earth to swallow him and his home. And there was for him no company to aid him other than Allah. nor was he of those who could defend themselves. Nobody could pull him out. And he could not come out himself either. For almost sorry cartoon was so proud of his wealth, and he was swallowed in the earth with his wealth. Remember, Alice Pousada does not like pride at all, we learned a Hadees that there was a person who was walking with pride, because of his fine clothes. And he was well pleased with his appearance.

01:38:22--> 01:38:25

And he was very impressed by the way that he was looking.

01:38:26--> 01:38:32

And Allah made him sink in the earth. And he would go on sinking in that until the Day of Resurrection.

01:38:33--> 01:39:07

Any we are on Earth, we are down below. And we should be humble. We should not be arrogant. And just because we're wearing nice clothes, we've got a nice fancy bag on right or we are, you know that you know, decked out you know, we have adorned ourselves, it doesn't mean that we start feeling that we are so great, we should be humble. And those who had wished for his position the previous day began to say Oh, how Allah extends provision to whom He wills of his servants and restricts it mean this is a love decision.

01:39:08--> 01:39:49

If not that Allah had conferred favor on us, he would have caused it to swallow us, meaning we could be like our own also. And remember, a person will be with those who he loves, or how the disbelievers do not succeed. This is the result of pride. The person who thinks highly of himself because of his riches will never succeed, delicate Dell will a hero, that home of the Hereafter, we assign to those who do not desire exalted ness upon the earth, or corruption, and the best outcome is for the righteous. So we see that the blessings of this world, yes, they're given to those who are righteous and also those who are not righteous and the blessings of this world no matter how

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

many there are, there are temporary, but the blessings of the hereafter the home of the Hereafter, who is worthy of that let you redo that order when fill of the winner, facade

01:40:00--> 01:40:45

Those who do not desire exalted ness upon the earth or corruption, meaning the meaning gender is for people who are humble for people who don't cause corruption. So sudo cosas begins with the story of our own. And towards the end we see the story of our own. And both of them were given power, they were given a lot of wealth, but look at their end, look at their final outcome. So it is said well are are able to deal with the pain. The final the best outcome is actually for the righteous and where is that? It is in paradise. So be humble here. Mangia. Erbil has an anti fella who hi Ron minha. Whoever comes on the Day of Judgment with a good deed will have a better than it. And whoever

01:40:45--> 01:41:24

comes with an evil deed, than those who did evil deeds will not be recompensed except as much as what they used to do. Indeed, he who imposed upon you the Quran, will take you back to a place of return the Prophet sallallahu already said as being promised over here that Allah will take you back to Makkah, say, My Lord is most knowing of who brings guidance and who isn't clear error. And you are not expecting that the book would be conveyed to you, but it is a mercy from your Lord. So do not be an assistant to the disbelievers. And never let them avert you from the verses of Allah after they have been revealed to you and invite people to your Lord and never be of those who associate

01:41:24--> 01:41:43

others with Allah. When after the rumor Allahu Allah Han and do not invoke with Allah another day to only call upon him. There is no day to accept him, everything will be destroyed except his face, his his the judgment and to Him He will be returned, so be his servant

01:41:45--> 01:42:12

sudo to the anchor booth Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Alif Lam Meem do the people think that they will be left to say we believe and they will not be tried. This is what they think that they will say la ilaha illa Allah and then there will be no test after that. No way. This life is a test. Every person is tested. And the believer is tested a little bit more

01:42:13--> 01:43:02

in proportion to the level of his faith. We learn in a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu rayson was asked that who is tested most severely and he said the prophets then the righteous then the next best. A man is tested according to the level of his faith. Meaning if his religion is firm, his test is increased. And if his faith is weak, then his test is reduced. It is lightened. So this is the way of law that he tests his believing servants. He tests he tests them to see if they're really true, and also in order to purify them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Bala tribulation will continue to befall on the believing men and the believing woman in their body, in

01:43:02--> 01:43:46

their wealth in their children, until they will meet Allah and there will be no sin on them. Allahu Akbar. But we have certainly tried those before them. And Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars, Allah subhanaw taala already knows. But he tests and examines through tests because this is His justice. He will not judge people based on his knowledge only he will give them a chance to do what they will do. And then he will give them the reward or the punishment accordingly, or do those who do evil deeds think they can outrun us evil is what they judge do they think that they can go on doing whatever they want, and then they will not

01:43:46--> 01:44:27

be held accountable? No way, there will be consequence for what they are doing. And this is something that that should really frighten us. That should really worry us. We learned that once a man came to the Prophet sallallahu Oradea sentiment said that he understood Allah I have some slaves. You know, sometimes they lie to me, sometimes they cheat me. Sometimes they don't listen to me. So I beat them at times and I you know, I'm a little harsh with them. So then what will happen with me, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied that they're cheating and their lies and their disobedience will be compared to you're punishing them. So if you're punishing them is greater

01:44:28--> 01:44:51

than what they have done to you, then the punishment will be on you, meaning that you will you will be punished for the wrongs that you have done to them. And if their crimes against you are equal to what you do to them as punishment, then Okay, any you have you you have executed justice yourself.

01:44:52--> 01:44:59

And if what what they have done to you is worse than what you do to them, then you will be granted justice.

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

So this man became so worried that he began crying before the Prophet salallahu. Early he was second. And then the Prophet sallallahu earlier said and recited the ayah that whenever I read masino pista Leo Milka Yama, that we will establish the scales of justice on the Day of Judgment, and then no person will be wronged at all. And even if there is mythical the habit even harder than any the tiniest amount of something illustrata will bring it and ally sufficient as one who takes people to account. So we have to be very careful, man canaille juliaca Allah, whoever should hope for the meeting with Allah. Indeed, the term decreed by Allah is coming, meaning piano is not far.

01:45:43--> 01:46:29

And remember, death is closer than the shoelace on a person's foot. And he is the hearing the knowing, so don't be impatient. Yes, sometimes things get tough tests are, you know, they can become very, very difficult. But remember, no difficulty in this life is permanent. It has an ending to it. So be patient, and, and have hope in the meeting with Allah remind yourself, I have to meet Allah. So let me be patient right now, let me keep working hard right now. So that Allah subhanaw taala will be pleased with me and the last parameter that will reward me, woman gehad for India, my yuja hidden enough See, and whoever strives only strives for the benefit of himself. So when you exert

01:46:29--> 01:47:11

any effort for the sake of Allah, any you are benefiting yourself. Indeed, Allah is free from need of the worlds. So if you lose, you lose, if you do good, you do good for your own self love is a needier worship, and those who believe into righteous deeds, we will surely remove from them their misdeeds, and will surely reward them according to the best of what they use to do. This is Allah's mercy, and we have enjoined upon men goodness to parents, but if they endeavor to make you associate with me, that are which you have no knowledge, do not obey them. So remember, we are supposed to obey our parents, but not unconditionally, there is no human In fact, when we obey unconditionally,

01:47:11--> 01:47:49

except for the for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, if parents are telling you to do Schick, then do not obey them, to me is your return and I will inform you about what you used to do. So we've heard that sounds it'll be a long horn when he embraced Islam, his mother, she took an oath that I will not eat or drink or anything until you leave Islam. Right. And she said that, you know, your your God tells you that you should be good to your parents. So why aren't you being good to me? So she remained like that without eating and drinking for a very long time, and she became really weak, so some of her other children forced her to eat. So when she regained her consciousness, she

01:47:49--> 01:48:28

started praying against sad little dilla horn. So of course, this was very worrisome for him. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed this ayah that No, you did the right thing. If your parents are telling you to do Schick, then you will not obey them. If your parents are telling you to do something unlawful, you will not obey them, you will dis disobey them. But respectfully, soprano law, respectfully, not rudely, which means that even if your parents are not Muslim, you don't have the right to be rude and harsh with them. That what do you think about parents who are Muslim, and those who believe and do righteous deeds, we will surely admit them among the righteous into

01:48:28--> 01:48:50

paradise. And other people are some who say we believe in Allah. But when one of them is harmed for the cause of Allah, and this certainly happens, they consider the trial of the people as if it were the punishment of Allah. And so what does this person do? He stops obeying Allah, any, this is something that is normal, when you do something, when you bring about a change that is very visible.

01:48:51--> 01:49:30

You know, sometimes people will be very harsh with you. So don't think that the harshness of people is actually a less punishment. So now you should stop doing good because you just got punished for it. No, this is not punishment, this was a test. But if victory comes from your Lord, they say, indeed, we were with you, meaning they want all the benefits is not Allah, most knowing of what is within the chests of all creatures. So check yourself Why are you worshiping Allah? Why are you doing good? Is it to receive good in this life? Or is it for the sake of Allah, if it's for the sake of Allah, then it doesn't matter what hardship what what difficulty you face along the way, you must

01:49:30--> 01:50:00

keep going until you meet Allah, and Allah will surely make evident those who believe and He will surely make evident the hypocrites and those who disbelieve, say to those who believe follow our way and we will carry your sins, but they will not carry anything of their sins. Indeed, they're liars, any they'll never ever free them of their burdens. On the day of judgment. They won't say okay, you committed the sin because of me, give me the sin. Give me the punishment because a they will not be able to me they will never be willing to

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

Because each person will now be, you know, running away from even their their close loved ones trying to save themselves, while a Milan escala, whom was Carla Mara calling him, but they will surely carry their own burdens and other burdens along with their burdens of whom they lead astray. And they will surely be questioned on the Day of Resurrection, about what they used to invent. So be very careful when you tell somebody to do something, if it is good, then remember that inshallah they will get the reward of the good that they're doing and you will also be rewarded for it. But if it is something bad, then yes, they will be responsible for what they're doing, but you will also be

01:50:41--> 01:51:25

responsible, you will also have to carry the burden of sin. So be careful. And we certainly sent a note to his people, and he remained among them 1000 years minus 50 years. This is mentioned in the Quran 950 years, no holidays, and I'm state among them. And the flood sees them while they were wrongdoers, but we saved him and the companions of the ship, and we made it a sign for the worlds and we sent Ibrahim, when he said to his people, worship Allah and fear him that is best for you, if you should know, you only worship besides Allah idols and you produce a falsehood, any there is no truth, these idols these are all lies. Indeed, those who worship besides Allah, do not possess for

01:51:25--> 01:52:10

you the power of provision, they don't give you anything. So seek from Allah provision and worship Him and be grateful to him, to Him you will be returned. So when you came from him, and you have to go back to him, then why do you forget him now? And if you people deny the message, already nations before you have denied and there is not upon the messenger except the duty of clear notification? Have they not considered how Allah begins creation and then repeats it? Why do they deny indeed that for Allah is easy, say, travel through the land and observe how he began creation, that Allah will produce the final creation. Indeed, Allah over all things is competent, he punishes whom He wills,

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

and has mercy upon whom He wills, and to Him you will be returned, and you will not cause failure to Allah upon the earth, nor in the heaven, any you cannot escape, you cannot get away, and you have not other than Allah, any protector or any helper, and the ones who disbelieve in the signs of Allah and the meeting with him. Those have despaired of My Mercy, and they will have a painful punishment. And the answer of Ibrahim's people was not but that they said, kill him or burn him. But Allah saved him from the fire indeed, and better signs for people who believe. And Ibrahim said, very important, he said, You have only taken other than Allah idols as a bond of affection among you in worldly

01:52:54--> 01:53:37

life, meaning you worship these idols not because of the idols, but you worship them, because, you know, this is something that connects you all together. And this is your social structure. This is what brings you all together socially. Right? Your life revolves around them, they, these idols have become the center of your lives, right? And your social lives also revolve around these idols, you meet one another, you prepare food together, you offer a sacrifice together, you observe your festivals together, etc. and which means that really, it's it's not about the idols, it's not about the people, it's about, you know, just what you have become accustomed to. So think about it

01:53:38--> 01:54:12

question. And this is something that we need to reflect over also, that why is it that we go to the masjid? Is it just for the community? Or is it for Allah? subhanaw taala? Why is it that we do certain things? Is it just for that? So that sense of you know, social belonging? Or is it really for Allah soprano, tada, because the one who worships Allah will worship Allah, when there is a community and also when there is no community, definitely, the community is beautiful, it is excellent, it has its place, it has its importance. But you know, like a buck will do a lot more and who said, at the, at the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that whoever used to

01:54:12--> 01:54:53

worship Muhammad Sallallahu earlier, should know that Muhammad has died. But whoever used to worship Allah should know that Allah is Ever living. So we need to check ourselves, that why is it that we do certain things, and then even when we love certain people, and we work with them, and we worship almost punctata with with them, you know, when we do good things with them? What is it that is bringing us together? Is it that they feel a social void in our lives? Or is it that we really truly love them because of Allah for the sake of Allah, because if that friendship is for the sake of Allah, then that friendship will last forever, that love will outlive this world. Then on the Day of

01:54:53--> 01:54:59

Resurrection, you will deny one another and curse one another, which shows that if people come together for a cause others

01:55:00--> 01:55:38

Allah, and they cooperate in sin in aggression and this friendship will turn into enmity, this love will turn into hatred. And if people love another loved one another for the sake of Allah, then that love will last forever. And your refuge will be the fire, and you will not have any helpers. And Luther believed him. Ibrahim already said I'm said, Indeed, I will emigrate to the service of my Lord, I will emigrate to my Lord, meaning I will go wherever my Lord tells me, indeed, he is the Exalted in Might the wise, and we gave to him is how can you are called, and placed in his descendants Prophethood and scripture, and we gave him his reward in the world, and indeed, he is in

01:55:38--> 01:56:19

the hereafter among the righteous, and mentioned loot, when he said to his people, indeed, you commit such immorality, as no one has preceded you with from among the world's, indeed you approach men and obstruct the road, meaning they were also highway robbers, and you commit in your meetings, every evil, meaning openly in your gatherings you commit lewd acts in one is to do such things in privacy. And if Allah has covered you, then Okay, you cover your sin. But the other is that a person openly in front of other people probably, you know, together in groups, they're committing evil stuff in a love. And the answer of his people was not but that they said, Bring us the punishment of

01:56:19--> 01:56:27

Allah, if you should be of the truthful or not have been soalnya idol Coleman was sitting in he said, My Lord, support me against the corrupting people.

01:56:28--> 01:57:09

And when our messengers came to employ him with the good news with the good tidings of the birth of a son, they said, Indeed, we will destroy the people of that city meaning of the city of loop or the center. Indeed, its people have been wrongdoers, Ibrahim, is that I'm said indeed, within it is a loop. How can you destroy that place, they said, We are more annoying of who is within it, we will surely save him and his family except his wife, she is to be of those who remain behind. And when our messengers came to loot, he was distressed for them and felt for them great discomfort because he didn't know they were angels. They came in the form of men. They said Fear not nor grieve, indeed

01:57:09--> 01:57:55

we will save you and your family except your wife, she is to be of those who remain behind. So you see the people have built artists and have they didn't just commit this act in in the privacy of their homes. We learned that you know, it was mentioned earlier that they used to the corona Sabine, they used to obstruct the road they were highway robbers, and it is said that they would also Guinea attack the travelers. So if ever somebody was passing through their city, or you know stop there to rest supanova they would any rape other men by force soprano law any their evil had gone beyond limits. Yet Luther early Sam continued to preach he continued to advise them So what happened?

01:57:56--> 01:58:35

Indeed we will bring down on the people of the city punishment from the sky and because they have been defiantly disobedient Yep, so Cohn defiantly disobedient, and we have certainly left of it his sign as clear evidence for people who use reason and he not only the ruins but their story is preserved not just in the Quran, but even in the Bible. And Timothy and we sent their brother charade, and he said, Oh, my people worship Allah and expect the last day and do not commit abuse on the earth spreading corruption, but they denied him so the earthquake sees them and they became within their home corpses fallen prone, and we destroyed our than Simone and it has become clear to

01:58:35--> 01:59:17

you from their ruined dwellings, and shavon handmade pleasing to them their deeds. This is the real problem when chez Pon beautifies, the sins of a people and averted them from the path and they were endowed with perception of stuff that Allah will count almost up Sweetie, it wasn't that they were, you know, mentally retarded, or they were mentally, you know, illogical. They didn't have good sense. They were endowed with perception, yet they didn't benefit from it. And we destroyed our own and fit our own and Hammad and Moosa had already come to them with clear evidences, and they were arrogant in the land, but they were not out runners of our punishment, they couldn't escape. So each

01:59:17--> 01:59:56

We seized for his sin. And among them were those upon whom we sent a storm of stones. And among them were those who were seized by the blast from the sky. And among them were those whom we cause the earth to swallow. And among them were those who we drowned and Allah would not have wronged them, but it was they who were wronging themselves or stuff at a law. This is why we should keep asking Allah tada for protection that he Allah protect me. My sins are many, but your mercy is also great. A level my knees are all the big becomings availing arithmetic what the hell we are filtek what Pooja Tina qmatic What's your mirissa Holic

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

the example of those who take allies other than

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

Allah because you see qarun dependent on his wealth fit our own dependent on his power, right. And these other nations like the people of Ibrahim right he said they depended on their social structure, any any any ally that people take other than Allah that they choose over Allah subhanaw taala that ally whether it is an idol or a system or you know material blessing anything, what is it? It's reality is like that of the spider who takes a home. And indeed the weakest of homes is the home of the spider if they only knew. And he all supports besides Allah are like a spider's web. Can you? Is it can it can it ever protect, it doesn't protect the spider, the spider is so visible, any

02:00:53--> 02:01:40

Yes, it is possible to trap some food in there. But any it doesn't shelter the spider against the whether or against its, you know, enemy. No, it is so visible. You see other creatures, they will go hide in a hole, they will go, you know, make a nest somewhere, they will go hide in a cave, they will take shelter in different ways. But the spider its web is such that it keeps it completely exposed. It doesn't protect it at all. So just like that, when a person depends on someone other than Allah, then no matter how robust, and how strong and how firm, it seems, it's actually very very infirm. Because yes, the spider's web is truly amazing. Any if you think about the web itself,

02:01:40--> 02:02:32

the way it is structured, and the you know, the the web itself, any it's it's amazing, it's so fine. Yet it is so so beautiful at times and it is okay for the spider, it's able to catch its prey in that. But at the same time, it is very, very feeble. It is very weak. And just like that anything that we depend on, other than Allah subhanaw taala Don't be deceived by its appearance. In reality, it is weak, it is impermanent, it is going to break it is going to snap sooner or later. Indeed, Allah knows whatever thing that they call upon other than Him. And indeed, Indeed, Allah knows whatever thing they call upon other than Him, and He is the Exalted in Might the wise, and these

02:02:32--> 02:03:19

examples we present to the people, but none will understand them except those of knowledge. Haleakala who somehow worked, he will, Allah will help. Allah has created the heavens and the earth in truth. Truly It is he who is the creator, it is only he who deserves worship, and it is only he that we should rely upon in a fee Valley Kala area to live macmini indeed and that is surely a sign for those who believe. Meaning those who believe in Allah subhanaw taala should learn from the creation that they see that it is only Allah soprano tada who is reliable. So let us put our trust in Allah and let us worship only Allah and let us hold on to him and never give preference to

02:03:19--> 02:03:33

anything over him. But let us give preference to Allah over everything else. So panicle law whom will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta as the Furukawa Tobu lake was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
