automa or here la comunidad kitabi Joaquim is Sala in a Sala Tottenham I needed fascia he will moon cow. What are they call la he

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

will la who yarlung Matheson our own recite or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what has been revealed to you of the book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing. And the remembrance of Allah is greater and Allah knows that which you do. We see over here that Allah subhanaw taala is instructing His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to do three things, first of all, to recite the Quran, secondly, to establish the prayer and then the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada is mentioned.

00:01:30--> 00:02:18

And if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being given this command, then this means that this is even more important for us, because it will soon Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam is the perfect example for us. So the first thing that has been mentioned here is aluma. Or here la comida Al Kitab. Recite what has been revealed to you of the book, meaning in order to truly benefit from the Quran, a person must keep reciting the Quran. And to our doesn't just mean recitation, it also means to follow because that one is to do the third word meaning to follow and reciting the Quran frequently. Remember, it increases a person in their insight in their understanding, and it opens

00:02:18--> 00:03:08

the treasures of knowledge upon them. So the more a person recites the Quran, the more they benefit from the Quran, the more strongly they're able to follow the Quran. And as a person continues to recite the Quran, they learn what they previously did not know. So the recitation of the Quran opens up the treasures of the Quran gradually upon a person. And remember that the Quran doesn't just give us information. The Quran is supposed to be for action for guidance. And for that we need to keep we need to keep reciting the Quran, we need its constant reminders and the motivation that it provides. So it is not enough to recite the Quran only once. So otterloo recite, and this means recite for

00:03:08--> 00:03:51

your own personal benefit, and also recite to others. So this shows us that the Quran is not just to be read by the eyes that we open up the most often just look at the text and follow with our finger. No, it should be recited with the mouth, meaning the words should be coming out of your mouth. It should be audible and then we see that the recitation of the Quran is actually one of the rights of the Quran. Shakib Eben Salah said that someone passed by Abdullah de la Mourinho with the most half that was adorned with gold. So he said, Indeed, the most beautiful way in which the most half is adorned, is by its rightful recitation. So don't just focus on you know, a beautiful must have

00:03:51--> 00:04:35

having a wonderful golden copy of the Quran. know the best way that you can beautify the Quran is by reciting it. And when we recite it, our fear of Allah subhanaw taala should be should be there it should be visible. Our shuttle de la Mourinho narrated that the best of the people with respect to the recitation is the one who when he recites you can see that he fears Allah. And when you recite, recite calmly, don't rush the recitation because sometimes especially in the month of Ramadan, what happens is that we're so focused on completing our, you know, our job or whatever portion that we have decided for ourselves that we don't really pay much attention to what we are reciting. And

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

we're just focused on completing the recitation. So our beloved the Longhorn who said that do not recite the Quran quickly, as if it were poetry, and do not toss it aside as cheap dates are tossed aside, but rather pause at its wonders and move hearts with it, meaning recite with, you know, with attention with beauty, and we also learn that this rescue

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

The Quran should be with willingness, meaning don't recite the Quran

00:05:05--> 00:05:06

as if you have been punished.

00:05:08--> 00:05:53

Meaning do not recite the Quran as if you have been punished. recite the Quran happily enjoy that recitation. In a Hadees. We learned that recite the Quran as long as your hearts agree to do so. And when they don't, then get up meaning and leave the recitation for for the time being and return to it again. The second thing that has been mentioned over here, update massala. Perform the prayer, meaning properly performed the prayer. Don't just do the Sunnah, but perform the Salah, meaning with attention with who sure with submissiveness, with stillness, because it is such a prayer, which actually benefits a person and of the benefits of Salah is that it inhibits a person from indecency

00:05:53--> 00:06:36

and wrongdoing. So we see that Salah should have an impact on a person's life. And it is not just something that involves the body, meaning it is not just mere movements and words. It is actually something that impacts a person's life, how that it should stop a person from committing sin. We learn in a hadith that once a man complained to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam that so and so praise in the night. And then in the morning, he goes and steals meaning he commits the sins during the day. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in the Huseyin how who may have cool, meaning his prayer will prohibit him, it will stop him from committing sin. And then we

00:06:36--> 00:07:21

see that when a person performs Salah, then definitely their burden of sin is lightened. We learn in a hadith that when a person stands to pray, then his sins are placed upon his shoulders. And every time that the person goes into such the, into the core, meaning they bow down, they prostrate, then their sins fall off of them. And remember that when a person is forgiven for the sins that they have committed, then they're able to stay away from those sins also. So the thing is that when you press on any it compels you, it forces you to look into yourself. Because generally what happens is that we're so distracted, because of the things that we're doing and the people that we're living with,

00:07:21--> 00:08:05

that the people that we're working with also, that you don't get to spend any time with yourself. You don't get that moment of silence, but in prayer, because you're not able to do anything else and you're not allowed to talk to people either. It allows you to connect with yourself, to look into yourself to realize your weaknesses and your mistakes. So a famous Allah established the prayer because it will help you become a better person. And then finally, one of the crolla he Akobo the remembrance of Allah is the Greatest meaning it is extremely beneficial to a person. So whatever that a person is doing, whether it is the recitation of the Quran, or they're performing Salah, or

00:08:05--> 00:08:25

any good deed, what should they do? They should remember Allah soprano Tada, more and more in it. In a Hadees, we learned that there is nothing that brings more salvation from the punishment of Allah than the remembrance of Allah, meaning it will definitely rescue and save a person from punishment when a victim Allahu Akbar,

00:08:26--> 00:09:06

and do not argue with the People of the Scripture, except in a way that is best, except for those who commit injustice among them. Meaning do not argue with the people of the book, unless and until you must have a discussion that is best meaning in which there are questions, and then there's answers there is back and forth. But the manner should always be excellent. Except for those who commit injustice among them. Meaning, don't even argue with such people. And don't entertain discussions with them. Because they're not seeking guidance with their injustice with their harshness with their rudeness and their mockery. They're only trying to bring you down. They're not

00:09:06--> 00:09:52

trying to listen. So there is no point in arguing with such people. And say, we believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you and our God and your God is one, focus on the similarities focus on the common grounds and build some trust. This is how interfaith is supposed to be and we are Muslims in submission to him, meaning to Allah. And thus we have sent down to you the Koran, and those to whom we previously gave the scripture believe in it. And among these meaning Arabs are those who believe in it, and none reject our verses except the disbelievers. And you Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not recite before in any scripture, nor did you inscribe one

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

with your right hand, meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was completely unlettered. He did not know how to read or how to write

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

Otherwise the faults of fires would have caused would have had cause for doubt. So we see that the inability of the prophets of Allah or to send them to read and write was not a fault or deficiency in him, it was actually an asset for him. For us, it is an error. It is something any deficient in us if we don't know how to read or write, but for the profits of Allahu alayhi wa sallam, it was an evidence of his truthfulness. Because a person of such background could never ever invent something so eloquent, so beautiful and so perfect. And this shows us that at times, our deficiencies can truly bring us the best blessings also.

00:10:42--> 00:11:30

Rather, the Quran is distinct verses, but who are yet to begin at fucile duty Latina o toller. In the Quran is distinct verses that are preserved within the chests of those who have been given knowledge. Meaning a sign of a person of knowledge is that they have some form on preserved within their chest, and none reject our verses except the wrongdoers. And this shows us that if we want to be considered amongst the people of knowledge, then we must have some clothes on preserved within our heart, meaning we should increase in our memorization. We should not settle with what we memorized. You know, when we were little, we should increase in our memorization of the Quran.

00:11:30--> 00:12:13

Because you remember, being able to memorize the Book of Allah is actually a blessing. It is a privilege that Allah has given to this oma has an imbecile he said, or to have the oma to Hitler, that this oma has been given the gift of memorization of the book of Allah, meaning the people before the previous nations, they weren't able to memorize their scripture, they were only able to recite it when they opened it when they had it in front of them. So it was only people who knew how to read, who could actually recite and read the Scripture, the average person could not, and they could not even memorize the Scripture, it was only the prophets among them who had memorized the

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

Scripture. So we see that in the Muslim Ummah, Subhana Allah the Quran is not just preserved in writing, it is actually preserved in the chests of the people in the hearts of the people. So we should also strive to be among people who learn the Quran. And such people who are married, who are proficient in the Quran, they will be with the noble and blessed angels, meaning their status will be very high in the Hereafter, and they will only be honored upon honor in a heavy sweeter and that the person who memorize the Quran will come on the Day of Resurrection. And the Quran will say, Yara be Halle. Oh Lord, decorate him. So he will be adorned with a crown of nobility, meaning a crown

00:13:01--> 00:13:43

will be placed on his head. Imagine the honor and then the Quran will say you're a busy dude who, oh Lord, give him even more. So then he will be adorned with the suit of nobility. And then the Quran will say you're a builder on who Oh Lord, be pleased with him. So Allah soprano tada will be pleased with him. Imagine if the Quran will be interceding on behalf of a person. You see, we learn in our bodies that even the parents of a healthy will will be honored on the Day of Judgment. If you've ever attended, attended a graduation ceremony. It is truly a beautiful experience, especially if you're the one who's graduating any you walk with that robe and that hat on. And that blank piece of

00:13:43--> 00:14:25

paper that has rolled up, you know, you hold it in your hand and you walk and your parents feel so proud of you. But then after the ceremony, you return the robe. You throw the paper away. And then you know you take a few pictures, you post them on Instagram and cut offs. That's it right now. Yes, you have a piece of paper that shows that you have a certain degree. But remember the real honor, real crowning is on the day of judgment when the whole fall will graduate. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the person who has memorized the Quran will be made to wear the crown of respect and dignity and his parents will be made to wear silky robes and they will

00:14:25--> 00:14:59

be more precious than the world and whatever that is in it. So both of them will ask that why have we been given this and they will be told because of your teaching your child the Quran. You see even if they're, you know, if a person has the best of teachers to to teach them memorization, parents still play a huge role in their child's memorization of the Quran. Ask any mother, any father, how much they have had to pray and how much they have had to struggle and it is a very difficult journey. It can be very, very exhausting, any there are so many things in your life that you have

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

To cut off on, you know, there's so many things that you can attend so many places you cannot go because now your focus is to have your child to help your child memorize the Quran. But all of this effort is not going to be in vain. Look at the honor that Allah subhanaw taala will give to people who have memorized the Quran and who have made their children memorize the Quran also. But remember that we should not just be content with the memorization. memorization of the Quran is something huge, but what is even more important. The next step after that is that we learn the meaning also, in Okay, you said that some of the pious predecessors would say that the Quran was revealed to be

00:15:39--> 00:16:23

acted upon. But the people have taken this recitation as its action. This is why the people of the Quran were considered to be the people who act by the Quran and follow whatever is in it, even if they do not know the Quran by heart. But the person who merely memorizes it, but does not understand it, nor act by it, then he is not of the Koran, even if he recites the letters and the treat perfectly, just as arrows are straightened perfectly. So our goal should be to take as much of the Quran as possible, memorize as much as possible. But memorization is not the end all be all. It's not the goal after which you stop. No, you memorize, and then you also increase in your

00:16:23--> 00:17:06

understanding in your knowledge so that you are able to reflect upon it, you're able to act upon it so that you can truly be among the Koran, and never ever be, you know, discouraged or or, you know, give up on yourself that it's too late for me, always remind yourself the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began receiving the Quran when he was 40 years old. Subhan Allah, so with the tofik of Allah with the help of Allah, you are able to memorize, you know, keep trying, keep putting in that effort, even if it's just one small Ayah a day, it's okay. Because no matter how much of the Quran you take, you gather for yourself in sha Allah, this will be a source of honor for you. But they

00:17:06--> 00:17:50

say, Why are not signed, sent down to him from his Lord, say the signs are only with Allah, and I am only a clear Warner. And is it not sufficient for them that we reveal to you the book which is recited to them, indeed, and that is a mercy and reminder for people who believe so the people of Morocco would constantly demand miracles from the Prophet sallallahu ala usnm. And it is made clear over here that the Koran is itself a miracle. Guinea, the Quran, its words, its contents, its recitation, the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the one who was conveying it. This itself is a miracle. You need a collection, every aspect of the Quran is a miracle, every

00:17:50--> 00:18:33

aspect of it, even its collection, its preservation, its writing, it sounds, you know, the fact that it is memorized by so many people, its meanings, its teachings, you know, its contents. Everything about the Quran is a miracle. Remember that every prophet of Allah, yes, he was given some miracle. But that miracle ended when the Prophet left the world, or that miracle was only temporary, witnessed only by the people who were present at the time at that place. But the Quran is an eternal miracle. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there was no prophet among the prophets, but was given miracles, because of which people believed in him. But what I was given was the divine

00:18:33--> 00:19:17

inspiration, which Allah revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will be more than those of any other prophet on the Day of Resurrection. Why? Because his miracle is going to be because his miracle is eternal. And this is why until people come, and they learn from the Quran, the miracle of the Quran is going to convince them to accept the Quran. And so this is why the Prophet salallahu Urdu sedums followers will be the most on the Day of Judgment, say sufficient is Allah between me and you as witness. He knows what isn't the heavens and earth, and they who have believed in falsehood and disbelieved in Allah is those who are the losers, and they urge you to hasten the

00:19:17--> 00:19:59

punishment, and if not, for the decree of a specified term, punishment would have reached them, but it will surely come to them suddenly, while they perceive not. They argue, they urge you to hasten the punishment. And indeed hell will be encompassing of the disbelievers. On the day the punishment will cover them from above them and from below their feet. And it is said, taste the result of what you used to do. Just imagine any being trapped in the fire. There is no way of escape. hitting this punishment is very severe. You're a birdie, all my servants alladhina amanu those who have believed in the ugly West

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

are indeed my Earth is spacious, it is vast for a boon. So worship only me, meaning if you are in any place, in any environment, any situation where you're where the hilum or the unlawful seems to be your only option, never think that this is the only option? No, you can always say no, there's always other opportunities and other places and other options present, because Allah subhanaw taala has created the world such that it is full of abundance, it is full of opportunities. And our problem is that we fail to recognize and see that abundance. Why? Because we're not aware of it. We don't believe sometimes those opportunities are obvious to us. And sometimes they're not obvious to

00:20:51--> 00:21:35

us. But we have to first believe that there are other options. You know, there are other possibilities. And when you believe that there are other possibilities, then you start looking and you ask Allah soprano Katana for help. And Alyssa Pendleton also shows you He guides you. So never, ever, you know, convince yourself that the Halong the unlawful is my only option. And remember coluna saying that equal to mode, every soul will taste death, then to us will you be returned. So we have to leave this world ultimately. So always remember this end, keep that end in mind. That How is it that I want to meet Allah subhanaw taala in a state of obedience or in a state of

00:21:35--> 00:22:22

disobedience, and those who have believed in the unrighteous deeds, we will surely assign to them of Paradise elevated chambers beneath which rivers flow wherein they abide eternally excellent is the reward of the righteous workers. So those people who seek better options, lawful options, who focus on worshiping Allah, soprano, darada, than Allah subhanaw taala will give them excellent reward for their effort also. But this effort requires patience, those who have been patient, and upon their Lord, they rely and how many a creature carries not its provision, a law provides for it and for you, and he is the hearing the knowing. So you see, many times when we you know, just accept the

00:22:22--> 00:23:06

unlawful opportunities before us, you know, we we think that the world is very scarce, or we think that, you know, if we don't benefit from this opportunity, then we're going to miss out. So this is reminding us that look at the world around you look at the different creatures around you. Do they carry the burden of providing themselves? Do they carry their provision upon their backs? No, Allah is the one who provides them and he also provides you. So remember, that worldly provision is something that is written it is decreed, meaning you cannot get more or less than what is written for you. So don't panic. And remind yourself that a loss of peloton is the one who provides

00:23:06--> 00:23:47

everyone, whether someone is very eager for provision or they're not, they're greedy for more or they're content with what they have, they need a lot or they need a little they plan a lot or they plan a little still no matter what a person does, ultimately, provision isn't the hand of Allah. So no one should think that because of their strength, they have a lot or because of their weakness, they have been deprived. No, it is Allah subhanaw taala who gives and this teaches us that we have to strive, we have to strive to you know acquire risk, but we have to stay within the rules, because breaking the rules is not going to get you anymore. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:23:47--> 00:24:37

edge middlefield plan a bit dunia adopt beauty and moderation in seeking worldly things. Meaning don't don't resort to unlawful ways. Because when you can, you can use lawful ways to earn what is decreed for you, then why resort to unlawful ways and this is something that is you know, something that we should remember not just in terms of money, but also in terms of relationships, you see, love is also part of risk, it is also provision, marriage, you know, having a healthy relationship. This is you know, having a loving relationship with someone, this is also risk. So remember, when you resort to unlawful ways, in order to you know, be with someone that you love, or in order to

00:24:37--> 00:25:00

marry them, then any you are only harming yourself, you are only depriving yourself of that blessing. So when if someone has written for you, any if if your marriage to someone is written for you, it will happen no matter how much people oppose it. So when you have this realization that if this person has written for me, it will happen if

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

They're not written for me, this relationship will never work out. So any, then it allows you to use lawful ways, right? To get what you want to get what you like. So stay within the rules that Allah subhanaw taala has legislated, don't break them. Because breaking those rules is only going to bring you harm and suffering, not just in this life but also in the afterlife. Because every limit and boundary that allows Pandora has said every single time that you cross it, guess what you're earning sin, you are going to be responsible for that you're going to suffer because of that. So have this, this, you know, realization that what is written for me will reach me. So I don't need to, you know,

00:25:46--> 00:26:29

resort to cheap and unlawful ways to get what I like. And for this, we have to put our trust in Allah, not in our job or in our business. Because then again, if we put our trust in, you know, our job, our business or for example, certain people, then we will panic, we will worry and when people panic and worry, they make really, really bad decisions. In our heads, we learned that if you were to rely upon Allah with reliance that is due meeting with the reliance that he deserves, then you would be given provision like the birds, they go out hungry in the morning and come back with full bellies in the evenings soprano law. And then this also means that when the last panel Tata is the

00:26:29--> 00:27:14

provider, we should strive to get provision and we should also ask him for provision, beg Allah subhanaw taala when a man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that How should I make Dora he said 11 month he said, say Allah homophily or how many were afeni or zucchini for things that Oh ALLAH forgive me Have mercy on me, protect me and give me sustenance give me give me provision. And when you have a need than say, a love of Mozilla, Oh Allah provide us in a heartbeat. We learned that when you say a llama zucchini, or Allah, you give me you provide for me. carnamah Allah says platfarm to I have done that. And he This is Allah promise that he will provide you. So don't panic,

00:27:15--> 00:28:02

and don't resort to unlawful ways to get what you like. If you ask them, who created the heavens and earth and subjected the sun and the moon? They would surely say Allah, then how are they diluted? Allah extends provision for whom He wills of his servants and restricts for them. Indeed, Allah is of all things knowing. And if you ask them, who sends down rain from the sky and gives life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness, they would surely say Allah say Alhamdulillah All praise is to Allah, but most of them do not reason. And this worldly life is not but diversion and amusement, and indeed the home of the Hereafter, that is the eternal life. If only they knew this, the life of this

00:28:02--> 00:28:49

world is compared to what play and amusement any is temporary, just as a game in this world is that while the game is going on, there's so much excitement, I there's so much fear, anxiety, apprehension, and then what happens when the game ends, people leave the stadium, right and the stadium is just empty seats. And then even seasons get canceled one after the other. And so, certain teams end they remain champions for another year in martial law, right. But we see this that end screens turn off, the glittery images are gone, stadiums become empty and just like that, our eyes also will close, we will leave this world and everything in it any whatever is in this world is not

00:28:49--> 00:29:32

going to come with us. So the real home is the home of the hereafter. What in the Hirata here, Darrell calm of us, Panther says in the Quran, that the home of the hereafter that is the home of stability, meaning that home is going to last, this life is not going to last. And when they boarded a ship, this supplicate Allah sincere to him in religion meeting when they make Doral in a time like this, they call upon only Allah. But when he delivers them to the land at once they associate others with him, meeting in difficulty, they remember Allah, but when things are back to normal, they forget about him, so that they will deny what we have granted them and they will enjoy themselves,

00:29:32--> 00:29:59

but they are going to know Have they not seen that we made Makkah a safe sanctuary, while people are being taken away all around them than in falsehood, do they believe and in the favor of Allah they disbelieve? Because you see, the people of Makkah hesitated believing because they said that if we believe that we will lose out on our worldly blessings. So they're being reminded of the blessings that are lost Pantera has already granted them then who has given you this

00:30:00--> 00:30:47

And who is more unjust than one who invents a lie about Allah or denies the truth when it has come to him? Is there not in hell a sufficient residence for the disbelievers when Medina jaha delphina. And those who strive for us Lennar Deanna whom sabudana, we will surely guide them to our ways. We're in the Lucha Lama Island morosini and Indeed Allah is with the doors of good. So we see over here, that guidance he Daya is connected with what with Jihad with striving, meaning the person who strives will find guidance, and the more a person's tribes, the more guided they will be in no Khayyam says that Allah subhanaw taala has conditioned guidance with Jihad over here. So the person

00:30:47--> 00:31:19

who's tribes more will have more guidance, and the most important Jihad the most important form of striving is to strive against the knifes the desire, the shaytaan and the world for things to strive against the nups the desire, the shaitan, and the world. So he who strives against these four things for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala then Allah will guide him on the paths of his approval Leonard the unknown sabudana Allah will guide them

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

and these paths will lead such a person to Jenna and the person who stops striving then they're deprived of guidance in proportion to how much they leave striving so these days Masha Allah A lot of you are striving a great deal any I find it difficult to talk okay but how do you listen to two hours Masha Allah and then you also recite the Quran and you're fasting and some of you Mashallah you're doing this in the middle of the night, or late in the evening or first thing in the morning because of you know, the time but you need this is striving and this striving is worth it. Because this training in sha Allah, it will increase your your guidance, think about it every single day,

00:32:00--> 00:32:41

you know, when you listen when you read to a New Jersey, you come across something that you perhaps did not know before, or you get reminded of something that you had completely forgotten about, or you're motivated to do something that you had neglected or now you are you are you know continuing with the same good deeds but but within you know, with with greater a man with greater motivation, with with more eagerness for less powders reward. So definitely when a person's tribes in the way of Allah and this tribe and requires first of all that you strive against yourself against your desire, you know, the nuts desires, sleep, desire is what that you just want to sleep on, you want to eat,

00:32:41--> 00:33:31

you want to just chill, you want to display a game maybe, but you oppose that, right? you oppose that. And then you oppose the temptation of shaitan and then the world so this will bring you in sha Allah more hedaya so for guidance, struggle is essential. It is extremely important. So remember, disciplining your knifes striving against your nuts is the greatest jihad. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and Buddha he do Mangia had enough Sophia. Attila the Mujahid is the one who strives against himself in obedience to Allah. Because what does the knifes urge a person to do? To commit sin? Right and in an upset a model to be sued? But when a person does not listen to the nuts

00:33:32--> 00:34:10

and makes the nups worship Allah, then this is a form of striving. Right? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked that a unity of love, which amongst people is the best, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a man who's tribes in the way of Allah with his wealth and with his knifes with his wealth and with his nuts and yes, your wealth probably is also going into this because if you're, you know streaming something live every single day for two hours perhaps your internet is you know, Mashallah some of you are listening while you're on the go, your data is probably completely exhausted. So you are, you know, investing your money in this and you are

00:34:10--> 00:34:55

striving against your knifes in this so it is worth it. And remember that when a person's tribes in the way of Allah, in a hadith we learn that a person will be told that a person will be allowed to enter Jenna from any of its gates for into who and why because striving in the way of Allah is in a Babel min of wabbit agenda, it is one of the gates from among the gates of Paradise, meaning it is something that will allow a person to enter Paradise. And because of it, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said youth Ebola will be in Hama wilhelma that allows parents I will remove worry and grief from a person because of their striving. Because when you're striving in the way of Allah,

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

you have a greater goal now, right? You have something to look forward to

00:35:00--> 00:35:48

something better something, you know that that requires you to focus. And because of that, you know, the little little things that used to bother you once upon a time. Now they don't bother you anymore and handed in the sooner to room Bismillahirrahmanirrahim and if Lam Meem lilibet your room, the Romans have been defeated, in the in the nearest land, but they after their defeat will overcome their enemy, within three to nine years to Allah belongs the command before and after, and that day the believers will rejoice. So here it prediction was given us of the future was given. You see at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The Romans and the Persians were constantly at

00:35:48--> 00:36:28

war that the Byzantines and the Persians were constantly at war. And remember that the Romans were Christian, and the Muslims, of course, they felt closer to them. And the Persians were idolaters, and the machine of Makkah felt closer to them. All right. So when the Romans were defeated, the machine of Morocco were very, very happy. But these verses were revealed that within a few years, Romans will be victorious again, and on that same day, Muslims will rejoice for another reason. When these verses were revealed, the Muslims didn't know what that reason would be. And they found out on the day of beggars, because when they were victorious, at bothered, on the same day, the Muslims

00:36:28--> 00:37:14

received news about the victory of the Romans, in the victory of Allah, meaning the believers will rejoice, why, in the victory of a lot of victory that Allah will give them he gives victory to whom He wills, and he is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful, it is the promise of Allah, Allah does not fail in his promise. But most of the people do not know, you see when a person is defeated, or they even feel defeated. Any is something that makes you feel very sad and worried. And any at a time like this, a person needs comfort, they need to know that things will change, they need to be told that their loss is not permanent. And the Quran brings us so much hope that when you read these

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

verses, you see that defeat is not permanent. Right? It is not something that defines you. Failure is an event in life, any it's not something that defines you, which means that it will go away within a very short time. The days feel long, but the years are truly short. So this is why it's so important that we keep reciting the Quran because the Quran gives you hope it lifts you up when you're feeling down. They know what is apparent of the worldly life meaning majority of the people who don't know about the promises of Allah, they know what is apparent of the worldly life only, but they have the hereafter are unaware. He These are people who don't believe in a less promise. Why?

00:37:59--> 00:38:41

Because they don't believe in the hereafter. And what is it that they believe in? What is it that they're focused on? Only on worldly life, and this is a case of the majority of the people that in worldly matters, very skilled experts, you know, Mashallah very, very knowledgeable. But when it comes to the Hereafter, the fact that there is resurrection, that there is hisab, that there is gender, there is not they don't even know the basic things, hustle and bustle, he said there is among people who can scratch a coin with his fingernail. And he can tell you how much it weighs, yet he just by touching it, just by feeling it, he can tell you how much that coin weighs. But he does

00:38:41--> 00:38:46

not. And he does not make a mistake in that. But he does not even know how to pray.

00:38:47--> 00:39:27

He does not even know how to pray. Meaning when it comes to worldly matters, experts, you know, so well, you know, experienced and skilled, but when it comes to the matters of Dean, completely ignorant, and there are many people who are like this, and this is something that should not make us judge other people but reflect over ourselves. That, you know, for example, a woman might might feel very, very skilled in the kitchen that she can turn, you know, any ingredient into best dish ever. Right? But when it comes to the matters of the deen than how skilled Am I when it comes to the knowledge of D? How much of that do I know? And we see that in a lot of people when it comes to

00:39:27--> 00:40:00

worldly matters because we earn money through our worldly skills, right? So So when it comes to worldly matters any we're very skilled we take this very very seriously. But when it comes to the matters of the Hereafter, we're generally very very, you know, careless about it. When they get it's okay when it comes to the cat. For instance, we calculate you know, we don't pay much attention to calculating it correctly and carefully. But when it comes to filing for taxes, etc, then we we count every cent every

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

Every penny soprano law, we learn in our hobbies, that there is nothing that will bring you close to Agenda except that I have ordered you have it. And there is nothing that will draw you close to hell, except that I have forbidden you from it. So we must learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, what he has brought out so, because if we're just focused on the law head, on the apparent aspect of this world, then what is the difference between us and animals, really, if you think about it, animals also know the law head of this world really, really well, sometimes even better than us. They know when storms are coming, they know how to prepare for the winter months, they know how to

00:40:41--> 00:41:24

find and gather and store their food, how to build their homes, how to travel, you know, north south, or whatever direction that they're going in any they know all of these LaHood aspects really well. And if our focus is also just the law had aspects of the world, than what is the difference between us and the animals. So remember, it is not wrong to, you know, have worldly skills. But it is wrong, that a person only has worldly knowledge. And when it comes to the matters of the Hereafter, they don't pay much attention to that, because, and they dismiss it. I will admit the photography unforeseen Do they not contemplate within themselves, Allah has not created the heavens

00:41:24--> 00:42:04

and the earth and what is between them except in truth, and for a specified term. And indeed, many of the people in the matter of the meeting with their Lord or disbelievers have not traveled through the earth, and observed how was the end of those before them, they were greater than them in power, and they plowed the earth and built it up more than they have built it up. subpanel if you think about it, the pyramids that are fit our own are standing till today, what technology was that we don't even know. And their messengers came to them with clear evidences, and Allah would not have ever wronged them, but they were wronging themselves, then the end of those who did evil was the

00:42:04--> 00:42:50

worst consequence, because they deny the signs of Allah and used to ridicule them, Allah begins creation, then he will repeat it, then to him, you will be returned. So never forget that. And the day that our appears, the criminals will be in despair, and they will not be for them among their alleged partners, any intercessors and they will then be disbelievers and their partners. And the day the hour appears, that day, they will become separated. And as for those who have believed and unrighteous deeds, whom fetullah to your balloon, they will be in a garden of Paradise delighted. This is real success. And notice how we decide whom they because they will be together. But as for

00:42:50--> 00:43:33

those who disbelieved and denied our verses, and the meeting of the Hereafter, those will be brought into the punishment to remain for Suhana law. So Exalted is Allah when you reach the evening, and when you reach the morning, and we take this for granted. Right? We really take this for granted, every single time that we reach the evening we're able to complete our fast we're able to break it, Masha Allah, any This is Allah is blessing that we should be grateful for every time that we enter the morning. This is another blessing that we have received, but we teach, but but we take each day, and each night for granted. And to him is do all praise throughout the heavens and the earth. And

00:43:33--> 00:44:23

Exalted is He at night, and when you are at noon, he brings the living out of the dead, and brings the dead out of the living and brings to life the earth after its lifelessness and thus Will you be brought out. So remember, only Allah is the Creator of life, we could fertilize an egg in a lab, but it will only grow and become a living creature when Allah subhanaw taala puts life into it. And obvious signs is that he created you from dust, then suddenly you were human beings dispersing for all from one human being woman at he and of his science is that he created for you from yourselves mates, meaning spouses from your own species, human beings. Why? That you may find tranquility in

00:44:23--> 00:44:59

them and also remember that however, was made from Adam. So there is no like competition between men and women that men are supposed to be enemies to women or vice versa. No, we're from each other. We're the same any we're all from the same source. Why has a lust penalty created for you from yourselves mates, that you may find tranquility in them you may find sukoon and he placed between you my wife and Warhammer affection and mercy indeed in that are Signs for people who give thought. So we see here that mutual love, affection mercy

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

kindness, compassion between a husband and wife is an ayah. Minaya Tila, it is a sign from among the signs of a law, because the two are not even related by blood, sometimes from completely two different parts of the world. But then as they come together in marriage, they love one another so much. And this shows us that one of the objectives of marriage is what letus cuando la ha, to find tranquility and sukoon through your spouse, meaning if marriage is not bringing sukoon On the contrary, it is bringing pain and suffering, and there's abuse, then it defeats the purpose of marriage, that is not marriage. Marriage is meant to bring sukoon to a person. And if that sukoon is

00:45:44--> 00:46:28

not coming, there's constant you know, pain and suffering, then perhaps that marriage is not supposed to, you know, continue because marriage is meant to bring support. And sometimes what happens is that we absolutely forbid the option of divorce, we think it is Haha, it is not unlawful. Any a person is not required to live in a relationship that is destroying them, that is bringing them grief and suffering on a daily basis. Why Because Allah, Allah has has legislated the option of divorce any we have borrowed from other religions, concepts, and we have made them Islamic. You know, it's it's not an Islamic concept that you're supposed to, you know, stay together until death

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

do us apart? No, this is not an Islamic concept. This is a Christian concept. So, marriage is meant to bring sukoon and we see that what brings sukoon in marriage, that peace and tranquility is the love and mercy that Allah subhanaw taala blesses a couple with because we're jharna He has made love and mercy. And Allah subhanaw taala blesses a couple with love and mercy when they're loving and merciful to one another. So show that love and mercy and ask Allah subhanaw taala for that love and mercy. Because when people don't show that love and mercy, then and and they don't fear Allah, they become disrespectful, abusive, and they neglect the rights of one another, then marriage becomes a

00:47:11--> 00:47:56

living hell. The thing is that we show compassion to children. We show compassion to even our animals, our pets, but remember, your spouse also deserves compassion from you. You see what's mentioned here, my webtitan What are your spouse deserves love and compassion, mercy from you? What does that look like? It means that you understand their needs, you care about their needs, it means that you are forgiving towards them, you understand their fatigue, you know, you have empathy, and you are there for them in order to support them. You're not just concerned about what you deserve from them, but you're also concerned about what you can give them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:47:56--> 00:48:38

sallam subclade, Ohio complaint Nyssa the best of you are those who are best to your wives best to your families. So mercy towards your spouse means that you help them and that you are useful towards them. in Hades we learn a habit or a body in a light Allah And Pharaoh only really the most beloved of servants to Allah or those who are most beneficial to their families. mercy towards your spouse means that you show love and you let that love be known. When the Prophet sallallahu Hardison was asked a university public which among the people is the most beloved to you? He said, Arusha. I showed the love on him, he said it was his wife. And loving your spouse having mercy towards your

00:48:38--> 00:49:15

spouse means that you accept them as they are. I should have done a lot more and has said that I would eat from a piece of meat and the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said it would eat from the same piece of meat from the same place. He would bite it at the same place as I did. And she said that at times, I would we mentioned rating. And she said I would I would drink from the cup. And you know, he would drink from the same place. They would share not just food but even dishes soprano love it. And you see this love and care has to be both sided. It's very normal to have disagreements. It's human to make mistakes. It's human to offend each other, and sometimes hurt each other

00:49:15--> 00:49:59

inadvertently. But it's imperative that we don't dwell in those conflicts. We don't prolong them. We learn in our Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, shall I not inform you of your women in paradise? He said there are widowed widowed women, he described them and then he said that when she gets angry, or she was offended, or her husband is angry, she says My hand is in yours and I will not sleep until you're fine. soprano law any I'm not okay with you being mad. I'm not okay with us, you know, being angry with each other. I will only sleep once we solve this problem. So hon Allah and if a couple is like this, that they're quick to resolve conflict, they don't dwell

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

Under conflict, only then they will have love and mercy towards one another. So remember, your spouse will not be perfect, they will not be perfect. And because you're married to them, you live with them, you will see faults in them that others don't, because you are closest to them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no believing man should hate a believing woman, meaning his wife, if there is something that he dislikes in her, there will be another that he likes. So yes, there may be things about your spouse that really annoy you, but don't focus on them focus on things or you know, under strengths on the good that they have to offer. And show that

00:50:39--> 00:51:24

mercy showed that love so that love and mercy will increase. And of His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the diversity of your languages and your colors. And this variation, any it shows that this is a you know, this this variation is is a sign of Allah, soprano Tardos Greatness, this diversity is a miracle. But we have used this as a way to discriminate against people, soprano law has created this diversity. And that means that Alice punctata knows your language, your unique way of expressing yourself. So talk to Allah. And obvious signs is your sleep by night. And they and you're seeking of his bounty, indeed, and that are Signs for people who

00:51:24--> 00:52:09

listen, and obvious signs is that he shows you the lightning, causing fear and aspiration. And he sends down rain from the sky by which he brings to life the earth after it's lifelessness indeed, and that our science for people who use reason, and of his science is that the heaven and earth remain by his command, then when he calls you with a single call from the earth, immediately you will come forth, and To Him belongs whatever isn't the heavens and earth. All are to him devoutly obedient and it is he who begins creation and he repeats it is ever and that is even easier for him reading, repeating the creation, repeating the process of creation is even easier for Allah subhanaw

00:52:09--> 00:52:50

taala. So why do you have doubt in resurrection? To Him belongs the highest attribute in the heavens and earth and he is the Exalted in Might the wise, he presents to you an example from yourselves? Do you have among those whom your right hands possess any partners in what We have provided for you so that you are equal there in and would fear them as you fear as your fear of one another within a partnership? Thus do We detail the verses for people who use reason? Think about it. If you have money, would you ever give complete ownership of that an equal authority over that to just another random person? No, you won't be surprised a lot. Some people are so careful. They're so stingy that

00:52:50--> 00:53:38

they don't even share their money with their spouse. Any the wife has absolutely no access, no access whatsoever. She has to constantly beg the husband please I need money to buy groceries. I need money to buy, you know, clothes for myself or the children or etc. Any as human beings, we become so greedy with our wealth that we would never want to share that with another human. And yet there are people who think that Allah has a partner that Allah has a child any How is that possible? You don't want any human to be equal to you, yet you ascribe equals to God balita Valentina, Lola, Mo, a humble lady in but those who are wrong, follow their own desires without knowledge, then who

00:53:38--> 00:54:26

can guide one who Allah has sent us tree and for them there are no helpers, so direct your face to word, the religion inclining to truth, and here to the fitrah of Allah upon which he has created all people the nature, no change should there be in the creation of Allah, that is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know. So in this ayah we learn about the fifth Allah that Allah subhanaw taala has created people upon you see Fatah is to open up and validly it is the creator, the originator. So fifth law is that it is as if Allah subhanaw taala opened us up and put something inside of us and it is our intuition. It is something that is already within us. It is the nature

00:54:26--> 00:54:59

that Allah subhanaw taala has created us upon and what is that nature that almost pentire has created us upon that we submit to Allah, it is our natural disposition to surrender to Allah to worship Allah. And this is the fifth law which causes us to submit to Allah. You know, naturally it is ingrained within every single child in the Quran we learned will not hold up to genuine insert inelia boo, I have not created jinn and men except that they should worship me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that every child is born upon the fifth law

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

upon the nature, and what is that nature? What does fitflop teach us? It teaches us that allies Our Lord, Allah is our God. It teaches us morality, it has that you know it because of that we have conscience, that we feel bad when we have done something wrong. So this is the nature that almost pentatonic has created us upon. But then what happens in Hades, we learn that every child is born upon the fifth law, and then his parents make him into a Jew or Christian, or into some other, you know, religion. So basically, it is the nurture then that corrupts a person. Right. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala has sent revelation, he has sent prophets to nurture people in Islam. So the

00:55:45--> 00:56:29

nature is to surrender to Allah, and the nurture the way we are raised, that definitely has an impact on us. It's undeniable, and that this is a reason why let's print out some profits to guide people to Islam. Mooney, Vina la adhere to it, turning in repentance to him, and fear him and establish prayer, and do not be of those who associate others with a law, or of those who have divided their religion and become into sex into different groups, every faction, rejoicing in what it has. And when adversity touches the people, they call upon their Lord, turning in repentance to him, than when he lets them taste a mercy from him at once a party of them. There's what their Lord,

00:56:29--> 00:57:11

so that they will deny what we have granted them, then enjoy yourselves for you are going to know or have we sat down to them and authority, and it speaks of what they were associating with him. And when we let the people taste mercy, they rejoice they're in, but if evil afflicts them for what their hands have put forth, immediately did a spear notice it has been said over here, that if evil afflicts them, for what their hands have put forth, meaning because of their own actions. So it is important that when we're struck by difficulty, we don't begin to despair, we don't get exasperated, because that's not going to take any problems away. What is going to help our situation is when we

00:57:11--> 00:57:53

change our actions, be my partner Matt, Id him. So when you change your action, you change your situation, do they not see that a like sense provision for whom He wills and restricts it, indeed, in that are Signs for people who believe and this is also a part of life, fluctuation of wealth, you see, sometimes we have a lot, sometimes less. And this is something that draws us to Allah subhanaw taala makes us think more about the home of the hereafter. So give the relative his right, as well as the needy, and the traveler, that is best for those who desire the face of Allah, and it is they who will be the successful. So, in this ayah, we are being told, that we should get that we should

00:57:53--> 00:58:36

give the relative his right. And then of course, those in need, and the travelers, why because this is best. Meaning, if you want to benefit yourself, then what should you do, you should spend on the relatives as well. Generally, when we think about, you know, giving money for the sake of Allah, we only think about you know, giving charity to the poor, right, and that is fine. People who are hungry people who are in need, we should spend on them, but we should also spend on our relatives. And this is something that will increase in your risk. And if it is actually a charity that will bring you double reward. Because at Hardee's, we learn that giving charity to a needy person is a

00:58:36--> 00:59:05

charity, but giving charity to a relative brings double reward, one for charity, and one for being good to a relative because the last part that has commanded us to do that. And the best form of charity, remember, is to give to a relative who is a cashier. cashier is someone who is estranged or secret enemy, any you know that in their heart, they don't like you, so they avoid you. And they're mean to you, you know that they try to stay away from you. So spending on them.

00:59:07--> 00:59:48

And whatever you give for interest to increase within the wealth of people will not increase with Allah. Any apparently when you give interest or when you take it apparently it seems like your money is growing, but in reality it is not. But what you Givens a cat, desiring the face of Allah, those are the multipliers. So here we're being taught to gives a cat. And this shows us that the only time when we spend in the way of a law should not just be the cat, we should give the cat but we should also spend otherwise, because you see earlier, General spending or general so the call was mentioned in here specifically the guy has mentioned. So we should focus on both types of spending. And here

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

we learn that we should give us a cat for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala only the sake of Allah and remember it is an obligation, but when you fulfill this obligation, there's a huge reward depending on your intention.

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

Givens a cat is something that will save a person from fear and grief in the hereafter. It protects a person from the evil of their own wealth. You know how these we learned whoever gives a copy of his wealth, then the shell, the evil of his wealth will go away. So it purifies wealth. And when a person gives a cat, and they also fulfill, you know, other obligations, then they will be among the city clean and shuhada on the Day of Judgment. And remember, giving the card draws a person closer to paradise, it takes them away from hell. And it's a means of entry into paradise. So to give you as a cat, seriously, Allah is the one who created you, then provided for you, that will cause you to

01:00:40--> 01:01:15

die, and then we'll give you life. Are there any of your partners? Who does anything of that? Do they give life and death? Exalted is He and high above what they associated with him? So who is God God is supposed to be who the one who creates the one who gives life The one who gives debt, the one who is eternal. So when people describe a child to God, you need that child is able to give life is able to give debts Well, apparently people killed him. You need that that cannot be God, who is God, God is supposed to be perfect and hate the giver of life, the one who will never die.

01:01:17--> 01:02:06

Lahontan fosatu Phil burry. Well, corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea. Why, by reason of what the hands of people have earned. Why, why has Allah allowed this corruption to spread? Why doesn't he prevent it from happening? So he may let them taste part of the consequence of what they have done? Why that perhaps they will return? What an important idea for us to understand. A lot of times people wonder, why is there evil on earth? Why does God not stop evil from happening, animals are dying people are dying, this is happening that is happening. We learned here that any kind of corruption, any kind of evil, that has spread on land or in sea sea is also

01:02:06--> 01:02:51

mentioned, the waters are also mentioned here. Any kind of corruption that has spread. This is a direct result of what of what the people have done. This is a direct result of their own actions. And Allah subhanaw taala lets that evil spread. Why so that people may see the result of their own actions, Allah, Allah lets them taste that you know what, when you do this, when you do such actions, there are going to be consequences. And why does the last point I let that happen in your room so that people will return, they will think about what they're doing, they will realize their mistake, and they will stop the wrongdoing. And this will teach them the the bigger lesson, which is

01:02:51--> 01:03:38

that there is life after death, and there will be consequences for what we are doing right now. So this is why we have to be careful. So we see that because of facade. Sorry, because of the actions of people. There's corruption, devastation, both tangible and intangible, both tangible and intangible, and remember, that facade is a result of disobeying Allah and His messenger. We learned in our Hadees that jurina Villa to Assad. That humiliation and disgrace is placed on who on those who oppose the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning such people will definitely suffer. Those who belittle the Sunnah, those who ignore it, then such people will be

01:03:38--> 01:04:26

belittled and humiliated. We learned that our words have consequences are Chateau de la Mourinho, once she, you know gestured with her hand about how short someone was. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you have said a word, which if it was added to the water of the sea, it would make it completely it would make it bitter. Any it would mean this is this is the reality of what you have said. So remember that our words our actions definitely have consequences. And at times the last parameter that allows us to experience that, you know, for example, the spread of a disease, even this is something that should not make us question God or where is God? and How come?

01:04:26--> 01:04:59

You know God has allowed this to happen? This should make us question ourselves, that what on earth what were we doing? Because of which we were deprived of God's mercy? When Allah is our man, he has created the world so beautifully. He has given us everything that we need over you. When he is compassionate, he is forgiving. He is unhealthy the forbearing yet we are suffering so much. Why don't point fingers at God point fingers at yourself. Check yourself what what are we doing right now. And there are so many

01:05:00--> 01:05:46

any warnings that we have been given in the Quran and Sunnah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that when fascia when indecency will spread into people, so much so that it is that the people commit indecent things out in the open without any shame, then what's going to happen? Our own plague and strange diseases will spread among them diseases which which the people before them were completely unaware of, they had no idea about them non existent before. So this is a result of what our own actions so we need to look into ourselves. What are we doing? And remember, when a loss prompter allows us to suffer, this is also His mercy, because it makes us contemplate on our

01:05:46--> 01:06:33

situation, and, and really improve ourselves. If we didn't suffer, how would we learn? So it's a it's a lesson for us say, oh, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam traveled through the land and observed how was the end of those before most of them were associators. So direct your face toward the correct religion, before a day comes from Allah, of which there is no repelling that day, they will be divided whoever disbelieves upon him as the consequence of his disbelief, and whoever does righteousness they are for themselves, preparing that he may reward those who have believed and unrighteous deeds out of his bounty. Indeed, he does not like the disbelievers. And all these signs

01:06:33--> 01:07:16

is that he sends the winds as Bringers of good tidings, and to let you taste His mercy. And so the ships may sail at his command. And so you may seek of his bounty, and perhaps you will be grateful. So this shows us that when the wind blows, it blows by the command of Allah. So we should never curse the wind that Oh, it's so windy, and we should not complain about it. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us Do not curse the wind, and is only doing what Allah has commanded it to do. instead make the law ask Allah subhanaw taala for its good, then the Dora is Aloma in the local Hydra. Well, hydro mafia. Well haoma osita to be what are all the becoming surely

01:07:16--> 01:07:24

mafia will shed Lima or sila to be what are all the becoming? Surely our surely mafia was at the mercy let's Be the role I asked you for the good that is in it.

01:07:25--> 01:08:05

The oil I asked you for its goodness, the good that is in it, and the good that it was sent to it. And I seek her protection from its evil, the evil that is in it and the evil that it was sent to it. And another Dora is Allahumma la con la kleemann. That will not make this wind fertilizing, not barren. And we have already sent messengers before you to their peoples. And they came to them with clear evidences that we took retribution from those who committed crimes and incumbent upon us with support of the believers. It is Allah who sends the winds and the stir the clouds and spread them in the sky, however, that he wills, and he makes them fragments. So you see the rain emerge from within

01:08:05--> 01:08:49

them. And when he causes it to fall upon whom He wills of his servants, immediately they rejoice, they become so happy, although they were before it was sent down upon them before that in despair. So observe the effects of the mercy of Allah any changes your mood, even how we give life to the earth after its lifelessness indeed, that same one will give life to the dead and he is over all things competent. But if we should send a bad wind, and they saw their crops turned yellow, they would remain there after disbelievers Yanni the despair of people is astonishing. It's ever growing. So indeed, you will not make So indeed you will not make the dead here. Nor will you make the death

01:08:49--> 01:09:29

here the call when the turn their backs retreating, 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 in submission to Allah. Allah is the one who created you from weakness, then made after weakness, strength, then made after strength, weakness and whitehair he creates what He wills and he is the knowing the competent soprano Illa utter weakness at the beginning. And then there is growth and then decline and weakness. Again, this is from the signs of Allah, there is a purpose to this, that we should remember our reality and never ever become proud. And we should realize that a lost cantata has

01:09:29--> 01:09:59

complete power over all of our faculties. And the day that our appears, the criminals will swear they had remained but an hour that thus they were diluted, meaning in this life also people are diluted they think that they will stay here forever. So they completely forget about the hereafter. And on the Day of Judgment, they will say, Oh, we lived in the world for only a short time, but those who are given knowledge and faith, notice the combination of in an Iranian way Amen.

01:10:00--> 01:10:40

Both, they will say you remain the extent of Allah's decree until the Day of Resurrection. And this is the Day of Resurrection. But you did not use to no soprano law. You see over here, amen and amen are mentioned together. And this is something that benefits a person in this life, and it will also benefit them on the Day of Judgment. So that day, their excuse will not benefit those who wronged nor will they be asked to appease Allah. And We have certainly presented to the people in this code on from every kind of example. But if you should bring them aside, the disbelievers will surely say you believers are but falsifies, they won't believe dust as a law seal the hearts of those who do

01:10:40--> 01:11:01

not know. So no matter which I add, they see they don't benefit. So be patient. Indeed, the promise of Allah is truth. And let them not disquiet you who are not certain in faith when as the defender kalinina lay up known being the people who don't have conviction. Don't let them make you weak. Don't Don't listen to them. Don't get affected by them.

01:11:02--> 01:11:50

sooner. Look, man, Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, Alif Lam Meem these are verses of the wise book as guidance and mercy for the doors of good And who are they? There are those who establish prayer and gives a cat and they have the hereafter are certain in faith. Instead of alcohol we learned that these are the mood, the mood, the cane, the people who have Taqwa, right, who benefit from the Quran and who have these qualities. And here we see that such people are more sinning, those who are doers of good. So the fact is that the person who has taqwa who is conscious of Allah will definitely do good. Because the consciousness of Allah makes you, you know, do what you're doing with excellence

01:11:50--> 01:12:41

with more care will add a Corolla who the mirror be him, those are on right guidance from their Lord, what will their ego who will mostly hone, and it is those who are the successful and other people is He who buys low and Hades, the amusement of speech, why to mislead others from the way of Allah without knowledge, and who takes it in ridicule, those will have a humiliating punishment. You see that one Hadith is mentioned here. Level is a thing in which a person delights himself, meaning something in which a person is so occupied and they're having so much fun, that they're diverted, they're distracted from what is more important. So law one Hades speech that is low is idle talk or

01:12:41--> 01:13:21

distracting, you know, frivolous, amusing speech or discourse. And this could be in the form of song, it could be in the form of a story, something that is read something that is heard or something that is watched. So here we learn that language Heidi is what does it do? Leo lilla and Sabina it leads a person away from the path of a law. So law one Hades, remember it takes a person away from us and and Hades. Accidental Hadith is the Quran. And I will talk such things they distract a person from the best speech, because the heart and mind can only have any one thing.

01:13:22--> 01:14:03

Meaning the heart and mind can only be occupied with one thing at a time, they have a limited capacity. So I'll be very sad that these are those new and latest things in which a person spends their time in order to amuse themselves. So for example, the TV show that they're watching another episode that they're watching, or, for example, a new song that they're listening to, so new and latest things in which a person is spending their time. But what is the reason to amuse themselves to find pleasure, but then the problem is that they make a person heedless. So this can include song, humor, comedy, and everything that does not teach any lesson, meaning it doesn't really

01:14:03--> 01:14:49

benefit a person. And why is this a problem? Because they arouse a person's basic desires and they get him occupied with useless things, they make a person lawful negligent, so Qatada said that it is possible that a person does not by law when Hades with their money, but when they enjoy it, then it is like they have bought it because they have given preference to it. Meaning they have given preference to it over the Quran and the Quran, Allah Saybrook a few said that this is very detrimental to a person that they give preference to what is false and fake and unrealistic and wrong over truthful speech. So in our beloved Mr. odilo horn, who was asked about this idea, he

01:14:49--> 01:14:59

said, Well, la isla de la ilaha illa, who by Allah, the One besides whom there is no god worthy of worship, this is Alina This is singing I mean, this is singing and music.

01:15:00--> 01:15:38

He said this three times. So, any definitely when you when you be listening to a song, for example, and it plays in your head over and over again, then what's going to happen even in Salah that same song is going to be on repeat in your head. If you've been watching, you know, for example, a certain show, and you're anticipating what's going to happen in the next one in Salah also you're thinking about that, then you're not going to find comfort and joy in the recitation of the Quran, you're going to want something that moves your, your, you know, your your desire your nuts, that that satisfies your nuts. And the thing with the nuts is that very quickly, it gets bored. Once you

01:15:38--> 01:16:19

start feeding the nuts, it will never ever be satisfied, isn't it that when you get used to one cup of coffee, then you want a second cup, right? You want an even stronger cup. So this is the reality of the nuts. So when you feed that desire, then it's going to take over you it's going to distract you from what is more important. so eloquently said that this laner means that song which moves the soul and incites desires and disobedience, and such songs that mentioned the beauty of women, and you know, their praise, alcohol, and other unlawful things, any of these things must be avoided. And he said that those songs which are free from these vices, what vices, musical instruments, and you

01:16:19--> 01:17:04

know, for harsh lyrics, they can be listened to, but for a short period of time, at specific events, any even if you're listening to Nasheed, for example, it shouldn't be that the machine is playing non stop in your car, non stop in your head, that you've got those headphones on and the entire time, you know that that machine is playing in your head, because then you will be singing the words of Nasheed and not the words of the Corolla, then you won't be able to make space for karate in your life. So remember, level Hadith is going to take you away from the sun and Hades, what are you going to choose? What is your goal, and when our Verses are recited to them, he turns away arrogantly as

01:17:04--> 01:17:48

if he had not heard them, as if there was in his ears deafness, so given tidings of a painful punishment, Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds for them are the guardians of pleasure, where they abide eternally, it is the promise of a law which is truth, and he is the Exalted in Might the wise, he created the heavens without pillars that you see. And as cast into the earth firmly set mountains, less it should shift with you and disperse they're in from every creature, and we sent down rain from the sky, and made grow there in plants of every noble kind, How the hell can law This is the creation of a law. So show me what those other than Him have created. Rather the

01:17:48--> 01:18:34

wrongdoers are in clear error. When attina documented hikma and we had certainly given look man wisdom, and what was the essence of that wisdom? What was the main the first lesson the first the impact of that wisdom anish coated in the be grateful to Allah. Remember, Look, man was a wise man. He was not a prophet. But yet his words of wisdom are actually recorded in the Quran. Because the person who was given wisdom is given a lot of good, the doors of goodness are open up for them. And the first part of wisdom is to be grateful to Allah. A lot of people will practice gratitude and this is something that is you know, the new trend. You'll see this in every, you know, class where

01:18:34--> 01:19:19

or every book or you know, every every thing that people suggest, you know, for self growth and etc, that you know, practice gratitude, practice gratitude, but then gratitude for towards the who gratitude is meaningless if it's not expressed to the giver, the giver of blessings. So a niche core, but not just wish core but which coronella be grateful to Allah. We don't just practice gratitude for the sake of gratitude, we practice gratitude towards Allah subhanaw taala we show gratitude to Allah, when my Yash confer in them is cruelly nuptse. And whoever is grateful is grateful for the benefit of himself, woman kafala and whoever denies his favor, than Indeed Allah is

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

free of need and praiseworthy. He doesn't need your gratitude, and mentioned when look man said to his son, while he was instructing him, that Oh, my son, do not associate anything with Allah and all parents must teach their children about this, indeed, Association within this great injustice. This is very, very wrong. You see, a wise person begins with their family. Look, man advised his son, and we have enjoined upon men care for his parents. Why? Because his mother carried him increasing her in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning isn't two years so even more weakness, be grateful to me and to your parents, to me

01:20:00--> 01:20:38

The final destination. So we have to be grateful to Allah. And we also have to be grateful towards people and among people. First is who our parents. Why? Because they took care of us, they raised us they taught us, Sophia had been arena said that he who offers the five prayers, that he is thanking Allah, and whoever after every prayer, praise for his parents, that he is also thanking his parents. So this is the minimum that we can do and make it a habit that you know, when you praise Allah, make the offer your parents love their hammer Commando bernisa Lila, it's a short term, but try to learn it, try to memorize it.

01:20:39--> 01:21:26

And you see over here, a lost parent artist specifically mentioned the struggle of the mother, the biological mother. And this shows us that it is the biological mother that deserves you know, our gratitude, that thank you for carrying me thank you for giving birth to me, even if she didn't raise you. But the fact that she gave birth to you in that is enough. She deserves gratitude from you. And Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning the struggle of the mother here. Why so that people know what pains the mother has, has taken in order to you know, give birth to them. So this shows us that any, as people we should also teach children about the sacrifices that their parents have made, any

01:21:26--> 01:22:08

parents are not supposed to, you know, remind their children that, oh, I did this, I did that for you, and you should be grateful to me. No, it's the job of other family members. It's the job of other relatives to help their children and their families recognize the effort and the sacrifice and the gifts of their parents. But unfortunately, a lot of times we are focused on making, you know, children turn against their own parents. But if they endeavor to make you associate with me, that of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them, but accompany them in this world with appropriate kindness and follow the way of those who turn back to me in repentance, then to me will be your

01:22:08--> 01:22:52

return and I will inform you about what you use to do. And look man said, Oh, my son, indeed if wrong should be the weight of a mustard seed, and should be within a rock or anywhere in the heavens or in the earth. Allah will bring it forth. Indeed, Allah is subtle and acquainted soprano law, it is something as small as a mustard seed. If it is somewhere in the darkness of the night, somewhere in the sky or in the earth. Allah subhanaw taala knows where it is, oh, Allah knows what it is. And we don't even know what is on our hands if we're carrying a certain virus on our clothes on our hands. On a certain surface, we have no idea and unless peloton knows about the tiniest things even

01:22:53--> 01:23:04

so realize the last parameter is power. And this shows us that we should not do anything wrong even in privacy. That pride equal to a mustard seed even is not accepted.

01:23:06--> 01:23:49

So teach our children to fear alone, not you. Well my son established prayer enjoying what is right forbid what is wrong, and be patient over what befalls you. Indeed, Allah indeed all that indeed, all that is of the matters requiring determination, and do not turn your cheek in contempt toward people and do not walk through the earth exultantly. Indeed, Allah does not like everyone self deluded and boastful. So be moderate, not arrogant. Don't swagger. Even if you think you're the biggest gangster on on the planet still walk with dignity and calmness and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would walk in a way that would show you was neither weak nor was he lazy nor

01:23:49--> 01:24:34

arrogant. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah has revealed to me that you must be humble, so that no one oppresses another or boasts over another. And laquan said, be moderate in your pace and lower your voice meaning Don't yell. Indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys. So your speed in walk and talk should be moderate, not hasty or arrogant, walk with dignity and calmness and talk in the same way. And these verses we learn about some very important you know, etiquette or tips rather, of dealing with our children. Firstly, we learn about the importance of talking to your children, any have proper, deep conversations, serious

01:24:34--> 01:24:59

conversations with your children. Don't think that the only thing you can tell your children is you know, sit here, go here, do this, eat this pick up your toys, do your homework, etc. have meaningful conversations with them. Look at the kind of things that look man is telling his son secondly, speak with love. Because look at how look man says yeah, buena Yamuna yeah Oh my dear son. Oh my dears.

01:25:01--> 01:25:37

Then thirdly, the first thing we should build in our children we should teach our children is though hate that the Shrek Bella, this is the foundation. This is the first lesson that children need to learn. And this is something that needs to begin very, very early. Then fourthly, teach them to thank Allah. And remember when you teach them to be grateful to Allah, Allah will teach them to thank you. Because initially when you validate, this is from Allah, sometimes we complain, our children are not grateful. Well, because maybe we have not taught them to be grateful to Allah. And then we see continued to show love and more love because Look, man says yeah, banana again and

01:25:37--> 01:26:17

again. And then teach the facts right? Build the fear of Allah in them with love, then teach the hate, teach them almost patatas names, his attributes, because see, look, man says that even if there is something as small as the as a mustard seed, Allah, Allah knows about it. So teach them about all those powers, attributes, and then teach them rules. Teach them the things that they have to do. Praise Allah, teach them responsibility command what is right forbid what is wrong. Teach them resilience. Be patient over what strikes you teach them why, because in the valley governor as much or more this is something very very important for life. Teach them good manners, teach them

01:26:17--> 01:27:00

respect, and courtesy will add to the curliness. Don't, don't turn your cheek to people and don't walk in the earth proudly and teach them why not because people will think you're weird, but because Allah subhanaw taala does not like such people. And then teach them calmness, to be deliberate, to be mindful works with the machine, teach them composure, that they should not be noisy, and teach them the ability to take less than from what they see. Because see, look, man says in uncle Swati la Sultan Hamid, that the worst sound is that of the donkey, and teach all of this with hikma with wisdom, not just beautiful, flowery words, not that you make them sit down and then lecture them.

01:27:00--> 01:27:40

But teach them with your action with their own wisdom, because wisdom is the ability to put knowledge into action. So it is not just with your words that you teach your children, teach them with a practical demonstration Also, do you not see that Allah has made subject to you, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, meaning for your benefit, and amply bestowed upon you His favor is both apparent and unapparent blessings you see and blessings that you don't even see blessings that are tangible and intangible material, immaterial blessings that you don't even realize he has amply bestowed upon you. But of the people is He Who disputes about a law without

01:27:40--> 01:27:43

knowledge or guidance or enlightening book from him.

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

And when it is set to them, follow what Allah has revealed. They say rather, we will follow that upon which we found our fathers, even if chef Han was inviting them to the punishment of the Blaze, and whoever submits his face to Allah, while he is a doer of good that he has grasped the most trustworthy hand hold, surrender to Allah, and also do good, then a person has grasped the most trustworthy handhold and to Allah will be the outcome of all matters. And whoever has disbelieved. Let not his disbelief grieve you to us as they're returned, and we will inform them of what they did. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of that within the chests, we grant them enjoyment for a little, then

01:28:28--> 01:29:16

we will force them to a massive punishment. And if you ask them who created the heavens and earth, they would surely say Allah say all praises due to Allah, but most of them do not know to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and earth. Indeed, Allah is the free of need the praise worthy, and if whatever trees upon the earth work pens, and the sea was a replenished thereafter, by seven more sees the words of Allah would not be exhausted. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. The fact is, that we could never praise Allah enough. Your creation and your resurrection will not be but as that of a single soul, It is that easy upon Allah. Indeed, Allah is hearing and seeing, do

01:29:16--> 01:29:59

you not see that a law causes the knight to enter the day and causes the day to enter the night and has subjected the sun and the moon, each running its course for a specified term, and that Allah with whatever you do is acquainted. That is because Allah is the truth, Kenny a lot does that because he is the truth he is truly God and that what they call upon other than Him is false hood. And because Allah is the Most High, the grand Do you not see the ships sailed through the sea by the favor of Allah that He may show you of His signs, indeed and that are Signs for everyone patient and grateful and really when you're at sea, when you're in the middle of the you know when you're

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

surrounded by

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

Water, you really learn what suburban sugar is, and the importance of suburban sugar, because things are scary. They're not always according to plan. So you need that patience, and then you appreciate every blessing that you have. So it teaches you should also and when waves come over them like canopies, this supplicate Allah sincere to him in religion, but when he delivers them to the land, there are some of them who are moderate in faith, and none rejects our signs except everyone treacherous and ungrateful. All Mankind, fear your Lord and fear a Day when no father will avail his son, nor will a son avail his father at all, indeed the promise of a lies truth, select not the

01:30:47--> 01:31:25

worldly life delude you, and Be not deceived about Allah by the deceiver, and that deceivers shaytaan Don't let him put thoughts and doubts in your, in your head about Allah subhanaw taala that you begin to despair, and you detach yourself from Allah. Indeed, Allah alone has knowledge of the hour, and sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. And no soul perceives what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul perceives in what land it will die. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and acquainted in the la hora de mon hobbies, similar to such that

01:31:27--> 01:32:10

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite sort of such that before going to sleep. And he would also recite this in his fudger prayer on Friday. And this is something that should encourage us to memorize the suta also, and recite it in Salah. And if you start reciting it at night, and at least if you begin by listening to it, then inshallah over time, you'll be able to memorize it. And once you've memorized it, you'll be able to follow this sooner. How beautiful Bismillah Al Rahman and Rahim and if Lam Meem. This is the revelation of the Book about which there is no doubt from the Lord of the worlds, or do they say he invented it. Rather, it is the truth from your Lord, that You

01:32:10--> 01:32:57

may warn people to whom no warner has come before you. So perhaps they will be guided. It is Allah who created the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between them in six days. Then he established Himself above the Throne. You have not besides Him, any protector or any intercessor So will you not be reminded? He arranges each matter from the heavens to the earth, any all the way from above, to all the way down any there is nothing that happens except that Allah soprano Tara has arranged it, that it will ascend to him in a day the extent of which is 1000 years of those which you count, that is the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, the Exalted in Might, the Merciful. So remember the

01:32:57--> 01:33:42

angels, they carry out the commands of Allah. But then they also take up those reports back to a law, even though it was punked out already knows. And if we were to try to cover that distance between earth and the sky and try to reach that place where the angels go, it would take us 1000 years, we wouldn't be able to. And that just shows us how massive how expansive, the sky is our that is the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed the Exalted in Might, the Merciful, who perfected everything which he created, and began the creation of men from clay. Then he made his posterity, meaning his children out of the extract of a liquid disdained that he proportioned him and breathed

01:33:42--> 01:34:30

into him from his created soul and made for you hearing and vision and hearts. Little are you grateful soprano law, the ability to hear the ability to see the ability to comprehend, you know, whether it is with the eyes that a person sees or with their mind, they're able to visualize they're able to fully understand a reality can he and the heart feelings that we have this these are huge blessings, because there are people who have these faculties but they fail to benefit from them and there are people who are not able to see in here but sopran Allah, their soul You know, they're able to accept the truth and bring so much benefit. So Alina matters guru little are you grateful that he

01:34:30--> 01:34:59

this shows us that we should really take our faculties whatever that allows parent Garda has endowed us with as a blessing from Allah, we should not take them for granted. And we should ask almost panatela to preserve these for us a low morale fluffy bed early in the morning and in the evening. Alone Moroccan aefi summary Alomar often if people saw de la ilaha illa Anta that Oh Allah protect me in my body, keep my body safe, keep my hearing and my vision safe. There is no god worthy of worship except

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

To you

01:35:01--> 01:35:42

and shook gratitude for these blessings means that we use them in the right way. So what is it that we're listening to? What is it that we're looking at? And how are we looking at things? And they say, when we are lost within the earth, will we indeed be recreated in a new creation. Rather, they are in the matter of the meeting with their Lord disbelievers. Say, the Angel of Death will take you who has been entrusted with you than to your Lord, He will be returned. So remember, the time of our death is also fixed, if you could But see, when the criminals are hanging their heads before their Lord, saying, Our Lord, we have seen and heard so returns to the world, we will work righteousness.

01:35:42--> 01:36:26

Indeed, we are now certain. And if we had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, meaning every single person could have been forced to accept guidance, but the word for me will come into effect that I will surely fill Hell with gin, and people all together, a little law. So taste the punishment, because you forgot the meeting of this your day. Indeed, we have accordingly forgotten you, and taste the punishment of eternity for what you used to do. Only those who believe in our versus who, when they are reminded by them, fall down in frustration, and exalt Allah with praise of their Lord, and they are not arrogant. These are the true believers, those who truly

01:36:26--> 01:37:10

believe in the Quran. In the verses of Allah, what that when they are reminded of the verses of Allah, they fall down in prostration. They become humble, and they glorify and praise the Lord. They're not arrogant. We learned that anytime the Prophet sallallahu wasallam heard something or received something that caused him pleasure, any which made him glad he would make such that to Allah, out of gratitude, and really, sometimes learning and I have the Quran that brings you joy, that nothing else can. So when you learn something beautiful at that time also makes sense that to Allah fall down in frustration to Allah says that the sugar

01:37:11--> 01:37:57

they arise from their beds, they supplicate their Lord in fear and aspiration, and from what We have provided them, they spend, this is the sign of all the people who truly believe in the verses of Allah, that they don't stay sleeping all night long. No, they're not just concerned about their physical comfort. They also make time to worship Allah soprano Tada. So even though the bed is there, but still they make time to worship Allah subhanaw taala. In these we learned that there are three people whom Allah subhanaw taala loves, he laughs because of them, and he rejoices over them, who the first is He who lost his group his battalion. But

01:38:01--> 01:38:45

the first is He who lost his battalion but continues to fight by himself for the sake of Allah, and either he is killed or Allah grants and victory and suffices him. So last point, Allah says, Look at my servant, how he has made himself patient for my sake, meaning he could have given up but he doesn't give up he has not given up he was patient for my sake. Secondly, the man who has a beautiful wife and a soft, comfortable, good bed, but what does he do? He leaves his bed and he goes to worship Allah. So Allah says, he leaves his desire and remembers me and talks to me, fired koroni where you, Jeannie, and if you wanted, he could have slept. And the third is the person who is on a

01:38:45--> 01:39:01

journey with a group of people who have all fallen asleep because of the exhaustion of the journey. But he stands in prayer at such an ease and then hardship. So people who do that that Allah soprano tada he loves them, alone majority of them in home.

01:39:02--> 01:39:47

And no soul knows what has been hidden for them of comfort for eyes as reward for what they used to do. Meaning when a person worships Allah soprano tada in secret with consistency through ease and through hardship and the sacrifice their desire and their comfort to worship Allah that Allah soprano tada will give them a reward that is unknown to anyone but Allah subhanaw taala meaning that reward is also a secret, you know with Allah because they kept their deeds secret alows pronto has got that reward secret. So this person will only find out what that reward is. Once they enter Jenna, along with them in home. And we learned our Hadees that last panel Tara has said that I have

01:39:47--> 01:39:59

prepared for my pious servants which no eye has ever seen. No ear has ever heard. No human heart has ever perceived. But it is mentioned in the Book of Allah has testified in the Prophet sallallahu Ortiz number cited this Bible

01:40:00--> 01:40:07

We don't believe that most are listed and asked his Lord, that who amongst the inhabitants of Paradise as the lowest in rank,

01:40:08--> 01:40:47

and Allah said, the person who would be admitted into paradise Last of all, among those deserving of Paradise were admitted to it, it would be set to him enter agenda. And that person will say, Yara, how should I enter? Well, the people have settled in their homes and taken the shares meaning Where do I go and gentlemen, it's all occupied. So it will be set to him, would you be pleased if there is for you, like the kingdom of a king amongst the kings of the world, so he will say I am pleased with that, my lord. So let's prank I will say for you is that and like that, and like that, and like that, and that. So, when all those times I will say that, the fifth time, the person will say, I am

01:40:47--> 01:41:33

pleased My Lord. So Allah will say it is for you and 10 times like it, and for you is what your soul desires and your eye enjoys. So the person will say, it'll lead to be my Lord, I am pleased. So we'll start here, Sam said he wondered then that which is the highest of the inhabitants of Paradise, any of this is the case with the person with the lowest rank of john in general, then what about the person was the highest rank in general, soulless pantalla said they are those whom I choose to kilometer whom via D, I have planted their honorable homes with my own hand, and then I upset a seal over it. So that it has which no I have seen, no ear has heard and no human mind has

01:41:33--> 01:42:17

perceived because you see, sometimes certain things and just because something has been seen, it becomes you know, stained, right? It's it's no longer special. So these rewards are even more special because no eye has even seen it. So to reach these levels, we have to sacrifice the sleep of the night and spend of our money also. And we have to ask Allah subhanaw taala I love my nice article, Jenna, all I asked you for agenda. And I had these we learned when a person makes the offer agenda three times, then even Jenna intercedes for him, that allows them to clearly who or Allah admit him. So I love them in the local Jenna Allahumma igneous local agenda, a lahoma in the local

01:42:17--> 01:42:59

agenda, then, is one who was a believer, like one who was defiantly disobedient, they're not equal, as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, for them will be the gardens of refuge as accommodation for what they used to do. But as for those who defiantly disobeyed their refuges the fire, every time they wish to emerge from it, they will be returned to it, while it is set to them, taste the punishment of the Fire, which you used to deny, and we will surely let them taste the nearer punishment, short of the greater punishment, meaning we will let them suffer in the world. Why? that perhaps they will repent. So difficulties are meant to take us towards doba. And who is

01:42:59--> 01:43:17

more unjust than one who is reminded of the verses of his Lord, but then he turns away from them. Indeed, we from the criminals will take retribution. And we certainly get most of the Scripture, so do not be in doubt over his meeting. And we made the thota guidance for the children of Israel.

01:43:18--> 01:43:58

And we made from among them, leaders, guiding by our command when they were patient soprano law, a leader is only able to lead when they have sub, and when they were certain of our signs when they have your team in the promises of Allah. So these two qualities are essential. Whether it is that you want to lead your family, your children, or people that you're working with, you must have Subbu you must have patience, and you must have your clean your conviction in the promises of Allah soprano Tada. Indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection, concerning that over which they used to differ, has it not become clear to them? How many generations we destroyed

01:43:58--> 01:44:33

before them as they walk among their dwellings? Indeed, and that are signs, then do they not here? Have they not seen that we drive the water in clouds to barren land, and bring forth thereby crops from which their livestock eat and they themselves when do they not see? And they say, when will this conquest if when will be this conquest if you should be truthful? Say on the day of conquest, the belief of those who had disbelieved will not benefit them, nor will they be reprieved, so turn away from them and wait, indeed, they are waiting.

01:44:34--> 01:44:59

So little Bismillahirrahmanirrahim Yeah, a un bu O Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is never addressed in the Quran by his name. Allah subhanaw taala always addresses him in the Quran with one of his titles. Yeah, you have no bu when it comes to the other prophets. We see ya

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

Adam? Yeah, no. Yeah, Ibrahim yeah Moosa uresa. Yeah, zekeriya any profits are addressed by name. But when it comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his name is never mentioned in the sense that he's never addressed with his name. He's always addressed with his title. And this actually is a lesson for us. That when we talk about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we should talk about him in the most respectful way. Allah is teaching us this etiquette. So old Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fear Allah, how much more than we need to fear Allah, and do not obey the disbelievers and the hypocrites. Meaning don't succumb to their pressure, just because they

01:45:46--> 01:46:31

want you to do things their way. Don't listen to them, Fear Allah, and do what Allah has commanded you to do. Indeed, Allah is Ever knowing, and wise. And the same lesson is for us, that the people who, who tell us to do things differently from what else penalty has commanded them, no matter how much they insist, and no matter how much they, you know, pressurize us, don't succumb to their pressures, and follow that which has revealed to you from your Lord. Indeed, Allah is Ever with what you do, acquainted with our Colorado law, and rely upon Allah and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. Allah has not made for a man to hearts in his interior, you only have one heart in your

01:46:31--> 01:46:39

body. And he has not made your wives whom you declared unlawful, your mother's meaning either this woman is your wife.

01:46:40--> 01:47:20

She's your wife, she cannot be your mother, meaning a wife is a wife, and a mother is a mother. Don't confuse between the two. Give your wife her right, and give your mother her right. A lot of men think it's either my wife or my mother. No, it's not that competition. You keep your wife at the at her place, and you keep your mother at her place. And when you give your mother her right, and when you give your wife her right, then there will be no conflict. So a lot of times is conflict between, you know, the mother in law and the daughter in law. Why is that? So? It's because men don't know how to balance or or how to give, you know, their their mother what they deserve, and

01:47:20--> 01:48:02

their wife what she deserves. So it's important that that men take this matter seriously, you need here, a clear distinction has been made, that your wife is not your mother. And he has this about a certain context where the Arabs would, you know, it was a form of divorce, that a man would say to his wife that you are like my mother. So it is made clear here that she cannot be your mother, she is not your mother. And he has not made your adopted sons, your true sons. That is merely you're saying by your mounts, and you're saying does not change any reality, but unless as the truth and he guides to the right way, we'll do humbly Abba him, call them by the names of their fathers, meaning

01:48:02--> 01:48:41

if you have adopted a child, then don't give them your own surname. Let that child know who his real biological father is. It is more just in the sight of Allah, this is fair. But if you do not know their fathers, then they're still your brothers in religion and those entrusted to you. And there is no blame upon you for that in which you have erred, but only for what your heart's intended, and ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. So Allah will forgive the past mistakes, if you correct your present state. Now we learn something very important here. That adoption meaning adopting a child raising a child as your own, any This is something beautiful, this is something excellent. But in

01:48:41--> 01:49:23

that process, a child's real identity should not be changed. Meaning a child should be known by their parents in the sense that they should take their last name. Don't give them someone else's last name. And this is a major sin. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he will claim for another person. One is sorry, he who claimed for another one his fatherhood besides his own father, knowingly, then Paradise is forbidden to him. And if a person does this deliberately takes on the name of someone who is not their father than Jenna is how long upon them. Sometimes truth hurts any you don't want to hurt those children by saying that, you know, I'm not your real dad.

01:49:23--> 01:49:59

Your real dad was actually such and such person or we don't even know about him. We don't even know if he's alive, etc. truth hurts. But you know what, it is really the only thing that brings comfort. So if you love the children that you've adopted, that you're raising as your own, don't hide the truth from them. And maybe you olavi mininum and unfussy him, the prophet is more worthy of the believers than themselves. You see, what is the invitation of the knifes of the desire and the other is the invitation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The nuts insists that we do evil. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructed us to do what is best

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

So even when his teachings go against the nuts, what should we do obey the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he is more worthy than our own knifes. He is more deserving, because what He will teach us is better for us than what we can come up with for ourselves, and his wives are in the position of their mothers. And those of that relationship are more entitled to inheritance in the decree of Allah than the other believers and the immigrants, except that you may, except that you may do to your close associates a kindness that was in the book, inscribed, meaning Allah subhanaw taala has decided who your relatives are, and they have certain rights upon you, and

01:50:42--> 01:51:21

you cannot change those. But let's say you have certain religious friends who are not relatives, then you want to be good to them, you want to leave them some of your estate, you're allowed to do that through will see you right, which is up to a third of your wealth maximum. But any you cannot change the law of Allah, just because of how you feel about certain people. And mentioned when we took from the prophets, their covenant and from you meaning Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and from New and Ibrahim and Musa and Teresa, the son of Miriam and we took from them his solemn covenant, that he may question the truthful about their truthful and he has prepared for the

01:51:21--> 01:52:05

disbelievers a painful punishment, or you have believed, remember the favor of Allah upon you, when armies came to attack you and we sent upon them a wind and armies to counter to counter them, which you do not which you did not see why how did you not see them because they were angels, and ever is a lot of what you do seeing this is referring to the Battle of 100 or the Battle of trench which is also known as the Battle of a HAZOP. Why is it called a HAZOP? Because different have different groups of people from different areas came together to fight the Muslims. It was an army of 10,000 people. And they came they basically joined their forces together against Muslims. So it is said

01:52:05--> 01:52:43

here remember, when they came at you from above you meaning from the north and from below you from the south also. And when I shifted in fear, you were terrified that what are you going to do? And hearts reached the throats? And you assumed about Allah various assumptions? What were you thinking this was truly a test. There, the believers were tested and shaken with the severe shaking. And sometimes this happens, that we see the difficulty, or the trial approaching us from every direction, and the heart is turning about in extreme fear and anxiety. So what is it that we think about Allah at that time,

01:52:44--> 01:53:22

and remember, when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts as disease said, Allah and His Messenger did not promise us except delusion, this is hypocrisy, that in difficulty, a hypocrite thinks that Allah has promised was nothing. This was only a delusion. Now I'm going to suffer. And when a faction of them said oh people of yesterday, there is no stability for you. So return home at a party of them asked permission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, indeed, our houses are unprotected. While they were not exposed, they did not intend except to flee, meaning they actually did not want to participate in the battle. So they came up with these excuses. So we see

01:53:22--> 01:54:03

here, that the hypocrites at this difficult time were more concerned about themselves. And their fear kind of overcame them. So they were thinking about, so they were thinking of ways to escape to avoid difficulty. They didn't care about anybody else. They only cared about themselves. And if they had been entered upon from all its surrounding regions, and fitna had been demanded of the meaning if they were asked to betray the Muslims, then what would they do? They would have done it and not hesitated over it except briefly, why because their loyalties are not really with you. And there are some people like this were only out to benefit themselves, they don't care about anybody else. And

01:54:03--> 01:54:49

they had already promised a lot before not to turn their backs and flee And ever is a promise to Allah, that about which one will be questioned, say, never will fleeing benefit you, if you should flee from death or killing. And then if you did, you would not be given enjoyment of life except for a little. So remember, there is absolutely no escape from death. A person cannot avoid death, it is certain any it's going to happen one way or another and men because it gives, you know, a beautiful comparison through a story that the example of a person is like, you know, someone who is being chased by a lion. So this person finds a well and he jumps into it in order to save himself. So

01:54:49--> 01:54:59

there is a rope and he is hanging by that rope. And at the bottom of the well there are other creatures like snakes or something. And then what happens the lion is now sitting at the mouth of the well but that

01:55:00--> 01:55:43

The rope is being eaten by mice. So you see what's happening here at one way or another, the person will die. And this person, what he does is in the well, that he starts eating honey because he finds a honeycomb over there. So this is what happens with us. We know death is coming. Yet we fall into just, you know, pleasing ourselves in those few moments that we have. And our entire entire concern is about escaping death. Right? We think we're running away from death, but we're not actually running away from death, death is going to come to us, we are going to die. So it is said, Who is it that can protect you from Allah, if he intends for you and ill or intends for you a mercy and they

01:55:43--> 01:56:30

will not find for themselves besides Allah, any protector or any helper already, Allah knows the hinders among you. And those hypocrites who say to their brothers come to us and do not go to battle, except for a few. So yes, there are people who will avoid you know such situations. And then they will also discourage others who don't do good themselves. And they also discourage other people from doing good. And this is a form of hypocrisy, in disposed toward you, they really don't care about you. And when fear comes, you see them looking at you, their eyes revolving like one being overcome by death. But when fear departs, they lash you with sharp tongues, indisposed to word, any

01:56:30--> 01:57:10

good, meaning they really don't care about you, they get overwhelmed by fear. And then when things are back to normal, they're extremely rude and harsh toward you. Why? Because they want to get benefit out of you. Those have not believed so Allah has rendered their deeds worthless, and ever is that for Allah easy, they think the companies have not yet withdrawn because eventually they have left. But the hypocrites we're still living in so much fear, because the one who does not fear Allah, then he fears people a lot. And if the companies should come again, they would wish they were in the desert among the Bedouins inquiring from afar about your news. And if they should be among

01:57:10--> 01:57:42

you, they would not fight except for a little. So remember, a hypocrite does not care about other people. a hypocrite is only concerned about themselves, they're selfish. This is what differentiates a believer from a hypocrite. The Prophet sallallahu already kind of described the believers as what as one body, as a building, such that you know, each each brick is coming together with the other brick in order to any make a solid, firm structure, right, and

01:57:43--> 01:58:31

a single body such that if one part of it hurts, the entire body feels the pain. So this is how the believers are supposed to be not selfish. There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah, an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and who remembers Allah often, you see, this the current situation that we are in Yes, this was completely any out of nowhere we could have never imagined. And we don't really have anything to look back into our own lives to compare it to right or anything in recent history. But when we look into the life of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, we will find a lesson for every single situation that we find

01:58:31--> 01:59:10

ourselves in. Yes, we are suffering from financial crisis, we are suffering from fear, we don't know from from where we could get hurt and harmed, we don't know. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also experienced that wasn't the Battle of a hisab like that the Muslims were surrounded by enemies. And this, you know, basically, the facade came and laid a siege for an entire month. And it was extremely cold. There was no food supplies going in or out, the Muslims were constantly guarding the trench. And then there were people amongst, you know, the unoccupied the Jews who lived in Medina who basically betrayed the Muslims. So the Muslims were surrounded by danger, living in

01:59:10--> 01:59:51

extreme fear, day in and day out, they had to exert so much effort to defend themselves. And the Prophet sallallahu already said and survived that. So if we want to know how to survive, how to go through difficulty in our lives, we must look at the beautiful example of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And this is why we must take him as our role model, and follow Him in every matter, not just in Salah, and in the cloud and in South Africa, but also in how we speak to one another how we respond to different situations. And when the believers saw the companies they said, This is what Allah and His Messenger had promised us and align His Messenger spoke the truth, and it increased

01:59:51--> 02:00:00

them only in faith and acceptance. Earlier the hypocrites were mentioned here the response of the believers is mentioned that when the believers see a difficulty, they don't

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

Why did this happen? They said this is exactly what a line is messenger had promised, as we were told about this, that life is meant to be difficult. Life is meant to have trials. And we go through these trials by learning from what the Quran teaches us. And, and by looking at the example of Rasulullah sallallahu, early he was

02:00:17--> 02:00:56

among the believers are men, true to what they're promised a law. Among them is He who has fulfilled his vow, and among them as he who awaits his chance, and they did not alter the terms of their commitment by alteration, the thing is that we, you know, we come up with this with these great intentions, that you're alone, I will do this for you, and I will do that for you. And then one last time sort of puts us in difficulty. That is, when we're being tested, are we going to be true to the promise we made to allow Are we going to break it, though, that allowed me to reward the truthful for their truth, and punish the hypocrites if he wills or accept their repentance Indeed, Allah is

02:00:56--> 02:01:34

Ever Forgiving and Merciful. See what it said about the hypocrites Allah may accept their repentance. So never ever judge yourself or anybody that their Toba is not going to be accepted. Always be willing to repent to Allah and encourage people to repent to Allah. And Allah repels those who disbelieved in their rage, they came to harm the Muslims, but they ended up harming themselves, not having obtained any good and sufficient was a love for the believers in battle, and ever is Allah powerful and Exalted in Might. And he brought down those who supported them among the People of the Scripture from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts, so that a party you

02:01:34--> 02:02:10

killed, and you took captive, a party, this was the bundle quinella, who betrayed the Muslims at this time. And the detail of this isn't another student that is coming up. And he caused you to inherit their land and their homes and their properties and the land, which you have not tried him, and ever is a love over all things competent. So we see the greater problems at times bring you greater victory. So don't resent the difficulty, celebrate the victories that are coming up, oh, Prophet sallallahu already who was setting them, say to your wives, if you should desire the worldly life, and its adornment, then come, I will provide for you and give you a gracious release. But if

02:02:10--> 02:02:45

you should desire Allah and His messenger and the home of the Hereafter, that Indeed Allah has prepared for the doers of good among you, a great reward. So we've heard that the wives of the prophets of Allah where you send him at one point, they demanded a lot of money from him. So they were given this option, so that if you want to learn the home of the Hereafter, if you want Allah, His Messenger, the home of the Hereafter, then you have to make some sacrifices here. And if that is not your goal, your goal is worldly things, then you cannot be with the messenger sallallahu already he was setting up. So what do you think they chose? The Prophet sallallaahu already son went to

02:02:45--> 02:03:27

Chateau de la Marina, and recited this ayah before her and told her to consult her parents first, before making a decision. And she said, Why would I need to consult my parents I choose Allah, His Messenger, the home of the hereafter. Yeah, and he said, an OB, or wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whoever of you should commit a clear immorality. For her the punishment would be doubled twofold And ever is that for Allah easy. So remember, when the honor is great than responsibility is also great. And of course the reward is also great. So in the last panel data has blessed you with a certain privilege, even if it's beneficial knowledge, then take that matter

02:03:27--> 02:03:43

seriously, and strive to the best of your ability and expect the best from Allah subhanaw taala inshallah, we'll conclude over here so panicle locomobi handig A Chateau de la Ilaha. illa Anta as the hirokawa A to LA wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
