Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

are the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish likely is further away assembly Md weidel. Iraq Dr. melissani Yakubu Kohli Allahumma. Haddad Colby was said deadly Sani was Sloot's, AHIMA Colby mean, you know better I mean,

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

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there is no permissible envy except of two people, a man whom Allah has given knowledge of the book, and he recites it during the hours of the night, or in another version, a man who has been given wisdom by Allah. And so he acts according to it, and teaches it to others, and a man whom Allah has given wealth, and he spends it in charity during the night, and in the hours of the day. So remember, being able to recite the Quran, whether it is in the day or in the night, and then being able to understand its meaning, so that a person can implement it in their real life. This is truly a privilege from Allah soprano, Tada. And this is

00:01:19--> 00:01:51

something that we must all strive towards, it is not enough to only recite the Quran, it is also important that we follow it, we act upon it. So in 100, Allah as we are completing one just a day, you know, we are getting excited, we are happy about the fact that we are collecting more and more of the Quran. But really a person is fortunate when they're able to implement what they're learning. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the tofik I mean, just number 23,

00:01:52--> 00:02:45

womanly Allah or Buddha, Lady Fatah, Ronnie, what la he told her own? And why should I not worship the one who created me, and to whom you will be returned? This is the statement of the person who believed in what the prophets had said that, oh people when we have come from Allah, and we have to return to him one day, then why should we forget about him right now? Why should we not worship him now? And he talks about himself that wema Leah, that what reason? Do I have to not worship Allah? And really, we need to think about this for ourselves also, that why should we not worship Allah azza wa jal? What justification do we have? What is there to prevent us? What excuse do we have?

00:02:45--> 00:03:36

What reason? Do we have to not worship Allah? And really, if we think about it, there is none. There is nothing, no excuse that we can come up with that we can say that oh, this is why I cannot worship a lot. Because the fact is that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has Fatah Who has created me, who has brought me into existence, meaning I am what I am because of Allah, I belong to Allah. So why should I not love him? Why should I not surrender to Him? Why should I not show servitude to him? Why should I not thank him and seek Him and OBEY Him and try to please him? Why should I give preference to others over him? Should I take other than Him false deities, while if the Most

00:03:36--> 00:04:25

Merciful intense for me some adversity, their intercession will not avail me at all, nor can they save me? Meaning these false gods are of no use whatsoever, they cannot even protect me. Indeed, I would then be in manifest error in the air meant to be able to become, indeed I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me, but instead, they killed him. It was said, enter Paradise. So these people neither listened to this man, nor did they show him any regard. But Allah subhanaw taala honored him for the very statement that his people killed him for what he said with sincerity became the reason for his entry into paradise. And what did this man say? He said, I wish my people could

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

know of how my lord has forgiven me and placed me among the honored even after this man is dead. He wants the best for his people. sopran Allah, even after they killed him, he wanted good for them. Think about it. If someone were to say, one harsh word to us, we would get so upset that we would make all sorts of exemptions for ourselves to take revenge to satisfy our wrath. But this guy, he's not even angry. So

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

Pure is he that he just wants people to know the truth so that they don't miss out. So this is not about him at all. This is all about people knowing Allah subhanaw taala and being able to recognize him and being able to worship Him so that they are also saved. They're also honored with great reward. And this is actually prophetic character. We learned that the most difficult day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam endured, in his words was actually the day of thought if, when people not only rejected him, but they also humiliated him. They pelted him with stones and insults, and they chased him out of the city. And while he rested in a garden, he looked up towards the sky,

00:05:45--> 00:06:28

and he said that I saw a cloud shading me unexpectedly, I looked up and saw debris, and he called me saying that Allah has heard your people saying to you, and what they have replied back to you, meaning Allah knows what you said, and how these people responded, and Allah has sent the angel of the mountains to you, so that you may order him to do whatever you wish to these people. And the angel the mountains called and greeted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then said O Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam order whatever you wish, if you like, I will let the two mountains fall on them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No, I hope that Allah will

00:06:28--> 00:07:11

let them have children, who will worship Allah alone, and will worship none besides Him. This is how the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was, this is beyond forgiveness. You know, what is that? We are angry with someone we are hurt. And so we are being patient. A higher level is that we forgive them. And an even higher level is that you're not concerned about yourself, you're concerned about the other that I want good for them. This is prophetic character. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was so patient in this regard, we learned that he was affected by magic. And the charm was discovered and destroyed. And zaytoven apcom said that no mention of that

00:07:11--> 00:07:53

was made to that Jew meaning the Jew who had performed magic and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't even say anything to him. And he did not see that in his space at all. And he, the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, it was so forgiving. And look at this man also so forgiving, so focused on bringing good to others, that he doesn't really care about himself. And we did not send down upon his people after him any soldiers from the heaven, nor would we have done so. It was not but one shout, and immediately they were extinguished. And he these people thought so highly of themselves. They thought they were so mighty, that they rejected

00:07:53--> 00:08:41

three prophets of Allah. And then this man also who invited them they killed him. But what happened with these mighty people? One blast was enough to finish them off. Yeah, has sletten Allah, Larry Bird, how regretful for the servants? Oh, what a pity there did not come to them any messenger, except that they used to ridicule them, meaning they never showed any regard for those who actually wanted good for them. Why did they deny? And why do people deny now have they not considered how many generations we destroyed before them, that they to them will not return. And indeed, all of them will yet be brought present before us. And assigned for them is the dead Earth, we have brought

00:08:41--> 00:09:32

it to life and brought forth from it grain. And from it, they eat and we placed there in gardens of palm trees and grapevines and cause to burst forth there from some springs, Leah kulu Minh cemetery he that they may eat of his fruit, meaning the fruit that we eat, the food that we consume, where who who does it belong to? It belongs to Allah subhanaw taala meaning he owns it, he is the one who has created it, and their hands have not produced it. So Will they not be grateful? Subhanallah and we feel so proud of ourselves, we feel beyond entitled. You know, when we buy food, we we take it you know, we we we feel that this is ours and we can do whatever we want. But the fact is that even

00:09:32--> 00:10:00

the food we eat belongs to Allah. So when we sit down to eat, let us observe the food and ask ourselves, did I make this fruit myself? Did I make these coffee beans myself? No I didn't. Which human made it? Is this the product of a factory of some fancy equipment? No, all of that would be useless if Allah subhanaw taala did not cause food to grow with this with its distinct

00:10:00--> 00:10:52

Characteristics fragrance, you know, color and features, etc. so fly your schoolroom so will there not be grateful meaning Aren't you going to think a law? So how is it that we should thank Allah especially after we eat? We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever he finished eating, or his dining sheet was taken away, he used to say and hamdu lillahi lebih grafana were unaware Erna Laila McPhee in one food in that Praise be to Allah who has satisfied our needs and quench our thirst, your favor cannot be compensated or denied. Yeah, Allah, we can never thank you enough. And we cannot deny the fact that this blessing is truly from you. At another occasion,

00:10:52--> 00:11:40

he said, Al hamdu, Lillahi rabina Laila McPhee and what am what they're in what Emma Stone and abana that all praise be to you, our Lord, your favorite cannot be compensated, nor can it be left nor can it be dispensed with our Lord, meaning we cannot survive without your favors your job. So it is very important that after we eat, we thank Allah subhanaw taala and you know, these doras Subhana Allah, they're, they're written in books, they are even in apps. You know, there's so many great apps that you can download and inshallah you can read these doors and express gratitude to Allah soprano tada Suba Hanna lady holla call as akula her Exalted is He who created all pairs from what the earth

00:11:40--> 00:12:30

girls and from themselves and from that which they do not know, Subhana Allah, this is set in amazement. That amazing is my lord do these people fail to recognize His glory, that he has created everything in pairs, plants, animals, humans, and Allah subhanaw taala is the creator, he is unique, he does not have any equal or partner. What I tullahoma lay and assign for them is the night we remove it, we removed from it the light of day, so they're left in darkness, and the sun runs on course to word its stopping point. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might the knowing soprano love the movement of the Sun is mentioned over here. You see if the sun is moving, and we

00:12:30--> 00:13:23

know that the sun alone is not moving everything around it means the entire galaxy any that is also moving along with the sun. Kenny This is massive. So what is that order? What is that system that force that energy with which this entire galaxy is moving? Any this space physics is not random? Like, you know, like someone said that it would take me more faith to believe there is no God than to believe that there is God. Kenny, this is all not random. This is the Cadiz delicata Cody. This is all determined plan decided by who by Allah disease. And Arlene, the one who is Aziz ever Almighty Who has subjected and controlled these mighty creatures. The one who is Arlene, ever

00:13:23--> 00:14:16

knowing who has planned every minute detail the specific angles, degrees, pressures, everything. Now do you recognize him? Well come on and the moon, we have determined for it phases until it returns appearing like the old date stock meaning it becomes so thin and fine that at times you don't even see it on the horizon. And then you have your battles has Ramadan begun or not, has Ramadan ended or not? So Pamela, it is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day. But each in an orbit is swimming. Every single celestial body has its own path, its own unique function. Each phenomenon has its own time and duration. This is also perfectly organized. So this

00:14:16--> 00:14:59

precision, this perfection, any it's mind boggling. So we see over here how the sun is moving along on its course the moon on its course the night comes as it edits time, the day comes at its time, but it's astonishing how we focus less on our work. And sometimes our focus is entirely on the work of other people that were constantly interfering, constantly interrupting and designed for them is that we carry their forefathers in a laden ship. This is the ship of new Harley is set up and we created for them from the likes of it that which they ride, meaning almost pantherella has also given us other means of transportation. So there's also the ship of the desert. The camera

00:15:00--> 00:15:52

And if we should will, we could drown them, then no one responding to a cry would there be for them nor would they be saved a low metta min except as a mercy from Us when matar and Illa hain and provision for a time so Pinilla anytime that you are, you know, on a plane or even on a boat, he so many things could could go wrong. So many things could cause, you know, devastation so many lives to be lost. So when Allah subhanaw taala causes us to land safely, to reach the shore, to turn the car off any This is truly a blessing from Allah. But we should remember that our freedom is not forever. This is a provision for a time. But when it is set to them, beware of what is before you, and what

00:15:52--> 00:16:34

is behind you have fear of Allah, something could come upon you from before you from behind you something you expect, you know, and the danger is that you don't even know think about what you've done what you're doing. Learn from the past, learn from the present and what may happen in the future. Meaning show humility to Allah, because you really don't have any control, show humility to Allah so that you receive His mercy, but what happens to them, and no sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord, except that they are from it turning away, they keep turning away from the signs of Allah, and when it is sent to them spend from that which Allah has provided for you. Those

00:16:34--> 00:17:22

who disbelieve say to those who believe should we feed one whom if Allah had willed, He would have fed you or not, but in clear error, soprano Allah, what an excuse to not give to those who are in need. The fact is that Allah subhanaw, taala can give everyone and he does, but he gives more to some people so that they get the opportunity to give to those who have less, perhaps through that they will earn some reward. So remember, the surplus money that a Lost Planet Allah has given us, it is not just for us to save for our fancy vacations, no, it is the right of others. So we should so we must give them and not come up with such lame excuses. And they say, when is this promise if you

00:17:22--> 00:18:07

should be truthful, they do not await except one blast, which will seize them while they are disputing. And yes, the day of judgment will come suddenly upon people. In fact, death also comes suddenly, sometimes when people are buying, selling, arguing in their gatherings in their markets. And now we don't even have to go to the marketplace or to a workplace to argue we have common tours. So please save your life. You know, your life is precious, don't waste it in frivolous argument. And they will not be able to give any instruction nor to their people can they return and the horn will be blown. This is referring to the Nicolas sword for the second time. And at once from the graves to

00:18:07--> 00:18:49

their Lord, they will hasten they will say oh woe to us, who has raised us up from our sleeping place, the reply will be this is what the Most Merciful had promised. And the messengers told the truth in Canada Illa say hetton wahida it will not be but one blessed, and at once they're all brought present before us. So today, no soul will be wronged at all, and you will not be recompensed except for what you use to do. Meaning on the Day of Judgment. You will see what you earned yesterday in the life of the world. In the US horrible jen natalio Murphy Shaolin faqih hoon.

00:18:50--> 00:19:38

Indeed the companions of Paradise that day will be amused in joyful occupation, meaning the people of Paradise will be taken quickly into their blessings and rewards. Remember that some people will be taken into paradise, even before the people of hell are taken into hell. Why? So that they're not disturbed by seeing them. We learn in a Hadith, the agenda will be brought into view to the people meaning people of gender will be able to see gender even before they enter it, and they will see gender in its full adornment and decoration. And Allah subhanaw taala will say, a man or a body, where are those servants of mine who fought in my way who were killed in my way, or oofy severely

00:19:38--> 00:20:00

who were hurt in my way? And they strove in my way, what jaha doofy severely, alas, punctata will say Where are those servants of mine, and it will be said enter agenda. So they will enter agenda without any hisab without any accounting alohomora on them in home, homework as well to whom they end

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

their spouses in shade reclining on adorned couches, and yes, nobody will be single in paradise. For them there is fruit and for them is whatever they request. You see fruit for the Arabs was a delicacy. It was a mark of luxury because it didn't grow in the desert. It was only brought from outside you know from the north of or from the south. So it was also very expensive. So this will be the food of the people of jedna. You know, luxurious food, Salamone and peace, a word from a merciful Lord. Subhana Allah, a word from a merciful Lord. Imagine getting direct,

00:20:42--> 00:21:30

directly addressed by Allah azza wa jal, one Tesla leiomyoma you Hello, Jerry moon, then he will say, but stand apart today, are you criminals, meaning in the world, you were mixed with the righteous, you've benefited from their presence. But now that time is up. Now you will be separated? Did I not? Did I not enjoin upon you or children of Adam, that you're not worship shaped on For indeed he is to you a clear enemy, and that you worship only me, this is a straight path. So remember, we are supposed to oppose shavon not obey Him. And remember that the call of shaitan is the up is opposite to the call of Allah subhanaw taala. One is the command of Allah, where las

00:21:30--> 00:22:17

panatela commands is, for instance, to pray or to fast, you know, to give the cat hijab or anything, anything like that. And then the call of shaytaan is what is opposite to that, that don't pray, don't give don't cover, this is the call of shikon. So the question is, who are we going to listen to? And he had already let us tray from among you much of creation, so did you not use reason. This is the Hellfire, which you were promised, meaning you are warned of this, enter to burn they're in today for what you use to deny. That day, we will see over their mouth, and their hands will speak to us and their feet will testify about what they used to earn. Yes, hands and feet will speak on

00:22:17--> 00:23:01

the Day of Judgment of where we went with them, what we did with them, who we hit who we pinched, what we typed what we wrote what we swiped Allah subhanaw taala will cause hands and feet to speak on the Day of Judgment. In our heads, we learned that when you will be brought on the Day of Judgment, your mouse will be sealed. And the first thing to speak from your body will be the thigh and the palm of your hand. In another Hadees we learned it would be set to his thighs, to his flesh to his bones to speak, and his thigh his flesh and bones will bear witness to his deeds. Why? So that he should not be able to make any excuse for himself. Meaning on the Day of Judgment, we will

00:23:01--> 00:23:50

not be able to give any explanations, or present any excuses that are law. I didn't do this. I didn't obey you in this matter because I have this and this reason, or I disobeyed you because of such and such reason. No, our words are not going to save us on the Day of Judgment. Our body will speak against us. It is our actions that will be visible willona sha Allah thomasnet Allah uni him, and if we will, we could have obliterated their eyes, and they would race to find the path and how could they see and if we will, we could have deformed them, paralyzing them in their places, so they would not be able to proceed, nor could they return. Imagine the freedom that Allah Spano Tata has

00:23:50--> 00:24:40

given us today, where we have different abilities to see, to hear, to talk, to communicate, to move around, to run, to walk, to climb, to go different places, these are all God given. And Allah subhanaw taala can take them away whenever that he wants. So we must realize that we belong to Allah, we don't belong to ourselves. So our lives should not just be about pleasing ourselves, fulfilling every wish that we have, we must use our lives to strive to please Allah subhanaw taala to do things his way. Women are men who do not kiss who feel Hulk, FLIR ketone, and he to whom we grant long life, we reverse in creation, meaning a person goes back to absolute dependence, utter

00:24:40--> 00:25:00

weakness, so will they not understand. So when you see an elderly person, see your future in them, remind yourself that this is what I am heading towards, and ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect you and realize at the same time, your temporary nature, the fact that you're faculty

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

your abilities, your strengths are all temporary. So do something before you lose them. Women alumna who share a woman Jambo Lila, and we did not give Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knowledge of poetry, nor is it befitting for him. It is not but a message and a clear quote on to warn whoever is alive and justify the word against the disbelievers. Subhana Allah we recite sort of the scene when someone has died, so that somehow we can transfer the reward to them alone. And whether that happens or not. Any there is a difference of opinion regarding that. But the thing is that the Quran has come to Warren Warren who men can Hadean the person who is alive, the person who has a living heart,

00:25:49--> 00:26:35

and that is the heart of the believer, the heart that is spiritually alive. But it is not enough to just believe in order to benefit from the Quran. It is important that the heart is also present. It is attentive, it is willing to accept to learn to benefit such a person benefits from the Quran, but the person whose heart is dead, or the person whose heart is inattentive, distracted, then even if they know the whole quote on, they won't benefit with every other Billa Do they not see that we have created for them from what our hands have made grazing livestock, and then they are their owners, soprano law, these are creatures that Allah subhanaw taala has made for our benefit. And yes, we

00:26:35--> 00:27:20

have become their owners. And we think that we can do whatever we want. We think so highly of ourselves because we own certain things. But it is Allah soprano Tada, who has, you know, created these docile animals so that we're able to tame them, we're able to domesticate them, we're able to easily milk them slaughter them. Imagine if goats and sheep were like lions and tigers, it would be impossible for us to benefit from them. Perhaps they would eat us more than we would eat them, whether lenahan at home, and we have tamed them for them, meaning these animals are tamed for us. So some of them they ride soprano la anywhere able to sit on these animals like a huge camel or a horse

00:27:21--> 00:27:54

and go place to place and enjoy the ride. And some of them they eat like cattle and sheep. What a home feed him and after a while Mashad him and for them, they're in our other benefits and drinks. So many drinks because now if you start thinking about the different types of drinks that you can make with milk, soprano law, so many, so will they not be grateful? fella Yesh, karoun a fella Yash guru, any we're not forbidden from eating and enjoying the blessings that Allah has given us. In fact, we must use them.

00:27:56--> 00:28:42

We must earn them lawfully. And we must take a last name and enjoy these blessings. But it is also very important that after we use them, we thank Allah for them. But it is so often that you know we take a sip of that cold, you know, dairy drink, and immediately we start complaining or to sweet or to this or to that he flh Kowloon, will they not be grateful. But they have taken besides Allah false deities that perhaps they would be helped, they are not able to help them and they themselves are for them soldiers in attendance, meaning people guard their idols, how are these idols supposed to protect them? familia Hassan kokkola whom so let not their speech greenview Indeed, we know what

00:28:42--> 00:29:28

they conceal and what they declare soprano law. You see, sometimes what people say, is far worse than what they keep in their hearts. So it is important to remember at that time, Allah knows what they conceal what they reveal, does man not consider that we created him from a mere sperm drop, then at once he's a clear adversary, He Has he seen his origin, what was he and he presents for us an example and forgets his own creation. He says, who will give life to bones while they are disintegrated. say he will give them life who produced them the first time and he is of all creation, knowing meaning he knows every kind of creation, every process of creation. Look at the

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

number of ways you know the different ways in which Allah subhanaw taala creates the creation. Not only has he initiated it, but he also repeats it, Allah. Allah knows how to create something in a womb, or in an egg or in a pouch or in the darkness and depth of the earth. Or he knows how to cause microscopic creatures to multiply and to spread any well who would be coonley halkyn Eileen and Lily jar Lola colmenar szegedi marinara

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

It is he who made for you from the green tree fire and then from it you ignite meaning you get fire from something that is so fresh, I will a salary Holocaust summer work you will be dealing on a local level is that he who created the heavens and the earth able to create the likes of them, Bella. Yes it is so well who will holla cola Aleem and he is the knowing creator. His command is only when he intends a thing that he says to it be and it is. So it is not difficult for a lot to create or to recreate for Super Hannah lady, BIA de Monaco to cliche what la he told her own. So Exalted is He in whose hand is the realm of all things and to him, you will be returned. He doesn't

00:30:54--> 00:31:04

just own the universe. He owns you and I and he will call us back. So what are we doing right now? This is what we need to pay attention to sooner to slough.

00:31:06--> 00:31:58

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim was fat Yusuf fuzzer jilla t Sehgal, fatale TV crawl by those angels lined up in rows, and those who drive the clouds. And those who recite the message. The angels are being mentioned over here. The fact that they form roles. And this is this is a fact that our last printout is telling us about that the angels form roles in the skies. Just as people form roles on earth to pray. The angels move together in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala in roles also. And on the Day of Judgment, again, they will come in rose, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he once came out to the companions. And he said, Will you not form rules, as the angels do so before their

00:31:58--> 00:32:38

Lord, they said, How do the angels do that? He said, they complete the first row, and fill the gaps in the rules. And this is how we should also make our stuff when we are praying. And remember, this is part of perfecting and beautifying the prayer. So even when you're praying at home, together as a family, make sure that you're forming your roles properly, fill the gaps stand foot to foot shoulder to shoulder, we learned in a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to pass through the rolls from one side to the other, he used to make sure that people were you know, standing straight, there were no gaps. And he would say do not be irregular, meaning do not have gaps in the

00:32:38--> 00:33:02

middle, and do not be such that one is, you know, a little forward and the other is a little behind. Don't do that stand straight together, shoulder to shoulder, otherwise, your hearts will be in disagreement. And he would say that a lion is angels, bless those who are near the first rows. So don't hesitate going forward, don't hesitate, moving a little to the right to fill the gap, make the rules beautifully and properly.

00:33:04--> 00:33:47

And then the angels are mentioned those who drive the clouds and those who recite the message meaning the angels who bring the revelation, what is the conclusion of the oath in Isla hukam lower head, indeed your God is one, this is the response to the oath, the do not see this organization and this discipline in the world. You think all of this is happening by itself. Think about it. One small event requires so much preparation, any we hire wedding managers now. And yet so many things go wrong. And this whole world this universe is functioning so perfectly. Why? Because behind that is the command of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala has arranged every matter and he has appointed

00:33:47--> 00:34:38

angels who do their work in a very organized fashion, their form rose, who is Allah, Lord of the heavens and the earth, and that between them and Lord of the sunrises, so He is the Lord of all the days, and of all the places and of all times in ASEAN, the semi adonia Indeed, we have adorn the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars. So remember the sky that we see is the summer adonia it is the nearest sky or, or the worldly sky. And this is this includes the entire known universe, because remember that we cannot go past the first sky. Because in Hades we learned that when the Prophet when the Prophet sallallahu earlington was taken on the night journey, the angel who took

00:34:38--> 00:35:00

him through a certain gate to go beyond the first sky and permission had to be taken at every gate. So we can we cannot do that. So imagine how vast, how huge how expansive, the universe is so huge that we're unable to figure out what size it is what shape it is. And this is all public.

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

What the first sky and imagine Allah subhanaw taala has created seven skies. Any how massive is this creation? And how little how tiny, how miniscule are we? And yet Allah subhanaw taala has adorned the sky, With what? With stars. Why? So that when we see it, we find it beautiful sopran Allah, Allah has made the sky beautiful for us to admire what heffalump mean cliche upon him added, and as protection against every rebellious devil, meaning this is not just empty decoration, but there's a useful function behind that. So they may not listen to the exalted assembly of angels, and are pelted from every side repelled and for them is a constant punishment, except one who snatches some

00:35:52--> 00:36:32

words by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing in brightness. We don't know how these the ones the companions were sitting with the Prophet sallallahu already sent him at night, and a meteor shot shot gave a dazzling light, meaning they saw a falling star. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam asked the people that what did you use to say in in the pre Islamic days about this, so they said Allah and His Messenger know best, we used to say that, that when there is a there is a falling stock, that there is a shooting star, a great man was born or a great man had died. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this is not because of the death or

00:36:32--> 00:37:16

anyone or the birth of anyone. The fact is that when Allah subhanaw taala, issues a command, when he decides to do something, then the angels that are around the throne, they glorify and praise Allah. Right? And then the angels that are under them, they begin to glorify and praise Allah, all the way down to seven skies to the lowest sky. And then they ask each other than what is it that your Lord has said, What command was given? So when that reaches the low, the angels have the lowest sky over there, the jinn try to listen to the conversations of the angels to try to know the jinns try to listen to the conversations of the angels to try to find out what is going to happen. So when the

00:37:16--> 00:38:03

jinns try to do that the angels chased them away with what with the stars for stuff to him, then inquire of them? Are they a stronger or more difficult creation, or those others we have created? Indeed, we created men from we created men from sticky clay, any This is the origin of human beings. But you wonder, while they're mock, there's two types of people. Some people are amazed at learning about the signs of Allah, and learning about the verses of Allah, at looking at the miracles that unless penalty has created, you know, they're amazed. And then there are other people who are just laughing away, who are making fun. What either to kyrou, layer karoun. And when they're reminded,

00:38:03--> 00:38:47

they don't remember, they don't they don't understand. They don't get a lesson. And when they see a sign, they ridicule, and they say this is not but obvious magic, this is brainwashing when we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected? And our forefathers as well say yes, and you will be rendered contemptible, it will be only one shout. And at once they will be observing, they will say Oh, woe to us. This is the Day of Recompense. You see, this is so shocking, that when something that you never expected, you never imagined, in fact, something that you believe was untrue, turns out to be true. It comes right in front of your eyes. This is what will happen to

00:38:47--> 00:39:32

the deniers on the Day of Judgment, they will be told, this is the day of judgment which you used to deny, it will be said gathered those who committed wrong, their kinds and what they used to worship other than Allah and guide them all together to the path of Hellfire, meaning take them all to hell together, who the people who committed wrong and there is wattage there as well. What does it mean by as well as it can mean spouses or it can mean companions, those who are like them. So remember, in the hereafter a person will be with those whom he likes, or sorry, a person will be with those whom he is like, of course, a person will also be with those whom he loves as the Prophet sallallahu

00:39:32--> 00:39:59

alayhi wa sallam said, but a person will also be with those whom he is similar to meeting people who do the same kind of actions will be together on the day of judgment in the hereafter. Just like in a prison. People have similar crimes are kept in the same prison. So together they and their spouses, meaning couples will be taken together into hell. Why? Because they were together in their crimes.

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

Or this means together with their partners in crime among the devils or amongst humans, they will be taken together because with each person is a shaitan. Right, who was trying to mislead him. So a person will go to hell with their shaitan stuff in a law, and then a person will be taken to hell with those who were like him. So for example, people who who are addicted to alcohol will be taken together. People who commit Zina will be among the people will be among those who commit Zina. In fact, we learn from Hades that the people who don't pray, will be with fit our own and Hamon. Why, because what was the problem with fit our own he was too arrogant to to surrender to Allah subhanaw

00:40:43--> 00:41:25

taala. And just like that, when a person refuses to worship Allah, what is the reason it is their pride, it is their Eagle. So those who are arrogant like this will be taken to hell together, and they will be taken with those they used to worship, meaning their idols, or obliques or whatever else that they worship. In a long Hadees we learn that Allah subhanaw taala will gather the first and the last. And people will wait for a very long time for 40 years for the judgment to begin. And then Allah will arrive, then an announcement will be made, that all people are you not pleased with your Lord who created you and gave you sustenance and commanded you to worship Him and to associate

00:41:25--> 00:42:07

nothing with him? Should you not go now with those you used to worship and befriend in the world instead of Allah? Is that not fair? They will say yes, because who could object now. So every community, every people will go with what they used to worship in the world. So some will go towards the sun, because that is what their worship some towards the moon because that is what they worship, or idols of stones, or whatever will resemble what they used to worship. Because remember that the prophets of Allah, you know, they're also worshipped, but they never want that worship, they never commanded people to worship them. So there will be things that will resemble them that will look

00:42:07--> 00:42:51

like them so that people will go go with their idols into Hellfire as the fiddle and stop them, indeed, they are to be questioned, even our best said that they will be interrogated about all of the words and all of their actions, they will be asked what is wrong with you? Why do you not help each other? Where is the power of your gods, where's the power of your group, but they that they are in surrender, and they will approach one another, blaming each other, the followers will say to the leaders, indeed, you used to come at us from the right, the oppressors will say, rather you yourselves were not believers don't blame us. And we had over you know, authority, but you were a

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

transgressing people. So remember, nobody at all, not even your parents will take responsibility for your choices. You are responsible for yourself, you will suffer alone for what you do. So never do wrong for the sake of other people. So the word of our Lord has come into effect upon us. Indeed, we will taste punishment, and we lead you to deviation, because indeed we were debaters. We are ourselves or deviated. So indeed they that day will be sharing in the punishment together. Indeed, that is how we deal with the criminals. Indeed, day one, it was set to them, there is no daily but Allah, they were arrogant, and they used to say, are we to leave our gods for a mad poet. Rather,

00:43:41--> 00:44:28

the prophet has come with the truth and confirmed the previous messengers. It will be said, Indeed, you disbelievers will be tasters of the painful punishment, and you will not be recompense except for what you use to do a lot a bad luck, hilma Holocene but not the chosen servants of Allah, they will not be in punishment. Those will have a provision determined, meaning they will have their reward and that reward will be familiar to them. What is that fruits wahome, okra moon and they will be honored, they will be served honorably, because they sacrifice their honor in the way of Allah feed Jeanette in their aim in Gardens of Pleasure. So remember in Jenna is a variety of foods. Once

00:44:28--> 00:44:59

a man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about a certain tree in paradise. So he explained that each tree will have in place of a thorn, something like a pouch that will be filled with 70 different kinds or colors of foods, each being unique and different from the other. The thing is that you eat with your eyes before you eat with your mouth. Right. So in general, the food is also beautiful, and there is an endless supply. You know, food is laden with flavor. It's delicious. Duh

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

Look at beautiful, either sudo remota carboline on thrones facing one another, they will be circulated among them a cup of wine from a flowing spring, you see of the blessings of Genoa is good company, because you can have the best food available to you. But if you're lonely, or if you feel excluded from a group or if you don't feel connected, you don't have that social connection, that that is very, very painful. So this is the beauty of Jana. No one will be lonely in paradise. They will be circulated among them a cup of wine from a flowing spring, white, glistening, and delicious to the drinkers, no bad effect is there in it, nor from it, they will be intoxicated. This is the

00:45:46--> 00:46:30

drink of Jenna, there is no hangover, nothing like that. We're in the home closer to perfect rain, and with them will be women limiting their glances with large beautiful eyes. What does this mean? This means that one of the interpretations is that these women will be limiting their glances to their husbands. Why? Because Mashallah, their husbands will also look really handsome. You see one of the companions, he would say that I like to dress up and look good for my wife, just as I like for her to look good for me. So this is the thing in general, that each person will be handsome and beautiful and so attractive to their spouse, that they will not desire anything else, as if they

00:46:30--> 00:47:09

were delicate eggs well protected, this is referring to their to the smoothness of their skins, and they will approach one another inquiring of each other. Now the conversations of the people of Paradise is mentioned, a speaker among them will say, indeed, I had a companion on Earth. I used to have a friend back on Earth, who would say, Are you indeed of those who believe that when we have died and become dust and bones, we will indeed be recompensed. And, you know, there are people like this who will ask you, you you really believe that there is life after death that there is resurrection, you really believe that? And such conversations, you know, when they happen between

00:47:09--> 00:47:56

coworkers or sometimes even family members? What Why do such conversations happen? Sometimes people say such things, why? To make you feel less about yourself, that you seriously believe in this? Like they're trying to make you feel bad. So he will say would you care to look and he will look and see him in the midst of the hellfire. He will say By Allah, you almost ruined me, if not for the favor of my Lord, I would have been of those brought in hell, if I had obeyed you, then I would be with you today, then are we not to die, except for our first death, and we will not be punished. Indeed, this is the great attainment. For the life of this. Let the workers on earth work, meaning we need

00:47:56--> 00:48:43

to work in order to get to agenda. Our words alone are not enough. Now these verses show us very clearly, that we need to be wary of the doubts of the doubters, of people who openly speak of their disbelief or who constantly question and criticize and mock and instill seeds of doubt. Do not get affected by them, resist and avoid the company of those who weaken your faith. You see, there are people who believe and there are people who don't believe and you meet all types of people, you interact with all types of people, and it is up to people what they want to believe in. However, if someone is calling you to disbelief, if someone is criticizing, mocking your faith, then you must be

00:48:43--> 00:49:26

careful, you must stay away from people who are a bad influence on you. You do this for your worldly security. For example, if you find out that a person you know is is committing a certain crime, you would stay away from them. Because you want to make sure that you don't get into trouble, right? You want to make sure that you're not putting your safety at risk. So you must do this for your eternal security as well. You must watch out for yourself. We learn in our hobbies that a good companion is like a man who has musk who is selling perfume. If nothing of it goes to you. It's fragrance will certainly go to you. Meaning even if he doesn't give you a free sample, the fact that you are

00:49:26--> 00:49:59

sitting around him you're going to smell some beautiful fragrance. And a bad companion is like a man who has bellows was working with fire. If the suit will not reach you it Smoke will certainly will. So yes, you have acquaintances you meet everyone nicely but the people in your inner in your closest circle. People that you really hang out with you to with you know you talk to you take advice from they must be righteous servants of Allah. We learn in a hadith that do not keep company of anyone except a believer.

00:50:00--> 00:50:44

And none but a righteous person should eat your food. Why? Because only such friendships will last we learned in the Quran Allah Villa Yama in bardoli. Berlin I do in love with the team, that best friends will be enemies to one another on the Day of Judgment except for the righteous except for the pious and make do offer such righteous friends. ask Allah subhanaw taala to Allah, you grant me good friends, people who will keep me firm people who will help me stay firm. In the Quran, Allah says that in the livina ama, no army no slowly had, say a doula human Rahman would, that need those who have believed in them righteous deeds, a man will appoint for them affection, he will give them

00:50:44--> 00:51:10

good friends. So ask Allah, Alec, Ohio, New Zealand, and shujaa to Zaku is paradise a better accommodation or the tree of Zaku stuffit along with a comparison. You see, in a hadith we learn that one drop of discipline would ruin the entire Earth. It would make life on Earth very, very hard. So what do you think about those whose only food is

00:51:11--> 00:51:53

indeed we have made it a torment for the wrongdoers? What is it? Indeed it is a tree issuing from the bottom of the Hellfire, it's emerging fruit, as if it was heads of the devils. And indeed they will eat from it and will fill with it their bellies. Why out of hunger, but it will be too bitter, so they will want to wash it down. So then indeed, they will have after it a mixture of scalding water, meaning extremely hot water that will be mixed with pus and wastewater, and wash waste of wounds the past and the wash waste of wounds of the people of health,

00:51:54--> 00:52:42

then indeed, their return will be to the Hellfire mean they will go back to the fire after their meal. Why? Why so much punishment, because indeed they found their fathers astray. So they hastened to follow in their footsteps, without any, you know, any thinking of their own without any question. Without any research. They just blindly followed, and there had already strayed before them, most of the former peoples and we had already sent among them Warner's then look, how was the end of those who were warned in arriba de la helmuth la scene, but not the chosen servants of Allah. May Allah grant us is lost as well, so that we are chosen when a Kadena Donna new home felonio Mooji Boone,

00:52:42--> 00:53:32

and new had certainly called us and we are the best of responders. Allah subhanaw taala responded to the door of new and we saved him and his family from the great affliction and we made his descendants those remaining on the earth and left for him favorable mentioned among later generations. peace upon new among the worlds in Napa Valley Canada zil masini indeed We thus reward the doors of good indeed he was of our believing servants, then we drowned the others. And indeed, among his kind was Ibrahim in just a bit who be called bin Salim when he came to his Lord with a sound heart. Remember that called Salim sound heart is mentioned two times in the Quran. And both

00:53:32--> 00:54:18

times it is mentioned in the context of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, which shows us that Ibrahima Sam's life has something to teach us about having a sound heart about having a club Saleem. You see, Celine is that which has survived, meaning, not someone who never suffered anything, not someone who, who was never attacked, but someone who has survived. So this shows us that there are trials in life. There are those questions, those personal wars, you know, those external forces that are pulling us away from Allah subhanaw taala. This could be the Chinook that is around you the faithlessness of people that is around you, or the doubts that creep up the questions that you have

00:54:18--> 00:54:59

the personal battles that you have to fight, but the person who holds on to Allah, then Allah also saves them. So that so the sound heart is the heart that is free of Schick that is safe, that is free of any association of partners with a law that is free of any shock of any doubt. Ibrahim, it is Sam hecto hate. And this is why he loved a lot the most. He was obedient to Him, He surrendered to Him fully. So there was nothing that he feared or loved or longed for, as much as he loved and feared and longed for Allah soprano Darla, and he had up he had ultimate Nan in hearts, which is why he suddenly automatic

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

Nickleby. I want my heart to be reassured. Because you see when we have doubt, even if it's a little bit, what does doubt do, it doesn't allow you to act. conviction brings you the strength to do something to do what you're supposed to do. So yet Ibrahima is so now, his heart was free of it was saved from any schicke. And any doubt, and with all that Ibrahim or his son, I was not bitter. He survived in that sense, also, urban city was asked, What is the sound heart? And he said, analogously Lillahi azzawajal fie hulky, that the one who is sincere to Allah in regards to his creation, meaning he wants the best for the creation of Allah. And Ibrahim renessa was like that.

00:55:45--> 00:56:31

Think about it. His father said to him, leave or I will kill you. His entire people threw him in the fire. But what but what was the response of Ibrahim or they sent him He said, I will seek forgiveness for you my father, when the angels came and told him about the punishment that they were going to bring upon the people of Luke earliest sinner. Ibrahim Ernestina pleaded with Allah to give them more time, Ibrahim or s&m left his child in the barren Valley. Why to populate that place, so that there would be a nation who would worship only Allah. Ne This is how Ibrahim artemisinin was, his heart was free of Schick filled with, you know, the belief in Allah subhanaw taala he was true

00:56:31--> 00:57:18

truly a survivor and he did not have any bitterness in his heart for people, none at all. And this is something very, very important in our religion. Jo de la de la Mora who said that I pledged to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be sincere toward every Muslim that I will want that I will in my heart want the best for every Muslim. This is the sign of a sound heart of calm Salim is not a heart that is yes making Vicar and he has claims that I love Allah and then in the heart is so much spite and anger and wrath and vengeance and jealousy for people. That is not a sound heart. A sound heart is a heart that is clean of such ills and vices. We learned in a hadith that six are the

00:57:18--> 00:57:58

rights of a Muslim over another Muslim. And when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was asked, What are these rights, he said that when you meet him, you offer him synonyms. When he invites you, you accept his invitation. When he seeks your counsel, you give it to him meaning you are sincere to him. Not that you're trying to cheat him and you know, trap him or give him bad advice in order to cause him to suffer. When he sneezes and says and hamdulillah you say your hammock Allah when he falls ill you visit him when he dies, you follow his janessa so it is a right of a Muslim that you want the best for them. And this is a trust and Amana, we learned that there are three things in

00:57:58--> 00:58:42

which the heart of the believer does not betray sincerity of action for the sake of Allah, offering sincere advice to the rulers of the Muslims and adhering to the jamara to the congregation. So Ibrahima is sent out, he had a sound heart, a clean, pure, sincere heart. And remember I mentioned earlier that Saleem heart is also one that has Salama that has made peace with others. Sometimes we are at peace with what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed for us. But we are not at peace with people. We don't forgive them. We don't pardon them. We still keep that, you know that enmity, that that grudge that hatred in our heart, we don't forgive them. And by that we are only torturing ourselves.

00:58:43--> 00:59:25

If Kali Abbey he will call me he mad at our balloon. When he said to his father and his people, what is it that you worship? Is it false hood as Gods other than Allah you desire? Then what is your thought about the Lord of the worlds? What do you think about worshiping, worshiping Him alone? And he cast a look at the stars and said, Indeed, I am about to be ill. He said this, you know, because this is what his his people would do. He didn't actually mean it. So they turned away from him departing. Then he turned to their gods and said, Do you not eat what is wrong with you, that you do not speak? And he turned upon them a blow with his right hand, he started breaking them. And then

00:59:25--> 01:00:00

later on, the people came to word him hastening, he said, Do you worship that which you yourselves carve, while Allah created you, and that what you do this add construct for him a furnace, a huge fire and throw him into the burning fire. And they intended for him a plan, but we made them the most debased This is a less power, we'll call it a need that he burned in on a B, C, D. And then he said, Indeed, I will go to where I am ordered by my Lord, I am going to my Lord, He will guide me. So because of this, the

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

The message that Ibrahim already sent, I was the first person to make his law to migrate for the sake of Allah to move away from a place where he wasn't able to worship Allah. He left, he left to go somewhere else. So he saw and loot, they left their people. And Ibrahim and he said I made Dora that'll be heavily mean Oh, sorry, hey, my Lord, grant me a child from among the righteous. So we gave him good tidings of a forbearing boy, Allahu Akbar, any he lost his father and his and his family. But Allah subhanaw taala gave him someone even better. And this is Ella's way. This is his promise, that when you give up something for the sake of Allah, Allah will give you something

01:00:43--> 01:01:31

better. And this is his promise, even when you spend something in the cause of Allah. You give in Allah's way, and Allah will compensate you. So what happened, Ibrahim is that I was given the good news of a boy who would be haleem. Very forbearing. What does that mean? You see in life, there are difficulties, things happen, which we don't always like, which we find very, very hard. halen is the ability to bear difficulty to not respond with impatience to not, you know, start wailing and fussing and crying over every little thing. And Subhanallah there are children who are like that, who are very courageous, who are very patient, who are very mature and very understanding. So it's

01:01:31--> 01:02:15

Mariela his salon was like that. And what was the proof of that? The story that is mentioned here, and when he reached with him the age of exertion, he said, Oh, my son, indeed, I have seen in a dream that I must sacrifice you. So see what you think. What do you say? What do you suggest? He said, Oh, my father, do as you are commanded, you will find me if Allah wills of the steadfast soprano law, this was his hidden. Why does it belong here? I said, I'm asked him, even though this was a command from Allah, he was not asking him that, should I or should I not, but he was getting his son to agree, so that his son would understand why his father would do such a thing. And so his

01:02:15--> 01:02:55

son would also be firm and willing, and patient. And this is very, very important that when we tell our children to do something, don't just come in, don't just tell them that you have to do this because I said, so no way. Tell them the reason that Allah is the one who has commanded, get them to agree so that they're also willing, so that they're also rewarded. And look at the response of his married, that if Allah wills, you will find me patient. Why does he say if Allah wills, because nothing is possible without the will of Allah. And saying, in sha Allah is a way of seeking the help of Allah. But we say in sha Allah when we don't want to do something, and we need to change that.

01:02:56--> 01:03:37

And look at his patients. In a hadith we learn that when Ibrahim artists and les is Mario on his forehead, this Marina was wearing a white shirt at that time. So he said, Oh, my father, I do not have another shirt in which you could bury me. So remove this from me. So you may shroud me in this shirt of mine. So bohemianism reached forward to remove the shirt, when he was called out from behind that, oh, Ibrahim, you have fulfilled your dream. When he looked back, there was a white Big Horn, Big Eye cheap that was standing over there. So it is said and when they had both submitted, and he put him down upon his forehead, notice how both had submitted. And this is what we should

01:03:37--> 01:04:24

desire, that we surrender to Allah and our children also, willingly surrender to Allah. But that is only possible when they know who Allah is not that they're obeying out of fear of you. So instill in your children, the fear of Allah, the love for Allah, the willingness to obey a law. And this is possible, even a little children, don't underestimate them. We call to him. All Ibrahim, you have fulfilled the vision. Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good indeed, this was the clear trial, no doubt about this. And we ran some him. And we ran some him with a great sacrifice. And we left for him favorable mentioned among later generations. So this is from where the tradition of offering

01:04:24--> 01:04:59

sacrifice begin. So remember, it's not about the meat or the blood. It's all about the state of the heart, because the sacrifice symbolizes the sacrifice of one's ego, of one's attachments and love for the creation. And we see here that when a person does something good, then Allah also gives them a good name. Meaning that people also remember that person or mention him in good terms. In a hadith we learned that when Allah intends good for a slave, he makes him sweet, our Salah who so the people asked How can he How can a person becomes sweet

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

like honey, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained that Allah opens the door of righteous action for that servant before his death, so that those around him become pleased with him. They're happy with him, they experience His sweetness. May Allah subhanaw taala sweeten us before our death also, we learned that a person is known by their deeds. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there is no person except that he has a certain name in the skies, by which he is known. And if that name is good, that is placed in the earth. So a person is known in good terms in the world also. And if that reputation is evil, then that same reputation is placed in

01:05:40--> 01:06:28

the earth. So yes, our goal is not to please people, to get people to talk about us in you know, in in positive words, that is not our ultimate goal. But it is definitely a reflection of who we are, that we need to see. And we need to pay attention to what people say about us, especially those who are closest to us. What do they say about you know, the way that we respond the way that we react? Do they say that we are very impatient, or the fact that we get angry very quickly, or the fact that we are very moody, or the fact that we are very difficult to get along with? Or do they say positive things about us? Because this is people's testimony, in our favor or against us? We learn in a

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

hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that soon you will be able to tell the people of Paradise from the people of hell. The Companions asked how or messenger of Allah, He said by praise and condemnation, because you are allows witnesses over one another. So the way that people talk about us, it does matter. But it doesn't mean that we make you know people's praise our ultimate goal, our goal should be to please Allah subhanaw taala and when you strive to please Allah, it is not possible that Allah subhanaw taala will not let that be known to others, meaning Allah will bestow His approval upon you, and that will spread amongst the people also. Salam O Allah Ibrahim,

01:07:11--> 01:07:57

peace upon Ibrahim Cavalli connectors in our city, and indeed, We thus reward the doors of good indeed, he was of our believing servants, and we gave him good tidings of his help a prophet from among the righteous, what good children and we blessed him and his Hawk, but among their descendants is the doer of good, and the clearly unjust to himself, soprano law, parents were righteous, but children were corrupt. This happened with the prophets also. So remember, the righteousness of our parents alone is not enough. We have to leave wrong ourselves. And at times, it happens that a person has done their best to raise good children. But despite their best efforts, they don't see

01:07:57--> 01:08:41

those good results. So don't blame yourself. This is not your fault. You did whatever was within your capacity. Yes, seek forgiveness from Allah for where you did fall short. But don't judge others either. You know, when you see that someone is righteous and their children are not any Don't say that, oh, they must be very evil to their being punished. Only Allah knows what the real story is. When a cada manana Allah musawah Harun, and we did certainly confer a favor upon Musa and how long and we saved them and their people from the great affliction, and we supported them. So it was they who overcame, they were victorious. And we gave them the explicit scripture very, very clear, and we

01:08:41--> 01:09:27

guided them on the straight path, and we left for them favorable mentioned among later generations. salmonella, musawah, harpoon, peace upon Moosa and our own Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good indeed they were of our believing servants, were in the Ilia, salamina, mousseline and indeed alias was from among the messengers, meaning he was sent to the bunny is Salaam, in when they openly began practicing idolatry. It Connolly called me he when he said to his people, and at the takuan Will you not fear Allah? Do you call upon Bari, this was a particular idol that they used to worship and leave the best of creators, Allah your Lord, and the Lord of your first forefathers, and they denied

01:09:27--> 01:09:59

him. So indeed, they will be brought for punishment, except for the chosen servants of Allah, those with his loves. Those who remain true to Allah who worship only Allah, those who have Sallim hearts, Allah subhanaw taala will save them. You save your heart right now you protected your garden, Allah will protect you on that day. And we left for him favorable mentioned among later generations. salon owner Allah se peace upon le s. Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good

01:10:00--> 01:10:42

Indeed he was of our believing servants. And indeed loot was among the messengers so mentioned when we saved him and his family, all except his wife among those who remained with the evildoers, then we destroyed the others. And indeed, you pass by them in the morning, and at night, then will you not use Reason being when you come across the ruins? Don't you take a lesson. And this is something that we should remember, you know, when we visit a museum or watch a documentary, it should not just be, you know, something that we admire things, you know, artifacts, etc. We're fascinated by that. Take a lesson that these were people who had all of this, yet Allah destroyed them. This did not

01:10:42--> 01:11:26

have any worth in the sight of Allah, what in the universe elemental mousseline? And indeed Yunus was among the messengers mentioned when he ran away to the late and ship, and he drew lots and was among the losers, because remember, when they were at sea, surrounded by the waves, there was a storm, they realized that somebody had to be thrown off of the boat so that the rest of the people could survive. So how did they do that? They drew lots and over and over again. Yunus and his lambs named came, so they ended up throwing him in the water. Then the fish swallowed him while he was blameworthy, and had he not been of those who exalt Allah, he would have remained inside its belly

01:11:26--> 01:12:18

until the day they're resurrected, so proud Allah. So what is it that saved us? Are the histogram any through which deed? Did His najat His salvation come? Allah subhanaw taala rescued him, of course. But why? because of the fact that he was among them who sub behave among those who make the spear. What does that mean? It means that he used to worship Allah and glorify Allah, before he he was trapped in the belly of the whale. And even when he was trapped in the belly of the whale, both who sat behind shows what his habit was, what he usually did, because remember, when you remember that good habits, pick up a person when he slips because of a mistake. So, hustle and bustle, he

01:12:18--> 01:12:57

said that he prayed in the belly of the whale, because he used to do good before. So in difficulty, he was remembered by Allah. And this is what we have been taught that you remember Allah in good times, and Allah will remember you in your difficulty. So make it a habit of doing the speed of worshiping Allah consistently. Don't just wait for that time when you will be old and sick, and then you will make da and then you will print the hijab, etc. you will only be able to do that. If you worship Allah now, because there are people who even go for Hajj, but they're not able to worship Allah. There are people who live through Ramadan, but they're not able to worship Allah, they're at

01:12:57--> 01:13:41

home, they have no obligations, any they have so much time, but yet they're unable to worship Allah. Why? Because in good times and easy times, they did not worship Allah. So we have to develop that habit of making the spear. And then secondly, we see that when we do find ourselves trapped in some difficulty, what is the way of escape, what is the way of getting out? It is the speed, make the speed assist upon Allah He will be handy soprano Allah hit Arlene and the speed also means Salah it also means prayer in Hades literature, you will find the word the spear being used for Salah. So make make Saba any not just your obligatory pervert voluntary prayer also and especially in the

01:13:41--> 01:14:25

month of Ramadan in the night. And he This is essential, this is how we will be taken out of our difficulties. And we learn that even when we are in difficulty when we make the wrong we should mention the good deeds that we have done in making the raw just like the people who are trapped in the cave, they called upon a lot that Oh Allah, if you know that I did such and such purely for your sake, then remove this, you know this boulder from us. And so they were freed eventually, but we threw him onto the open shore while he was ill and we cause to grow over him of gourd vine. And you see a gourd vine any a gourd pumpkin and it's different varieties zucchini etc. Any this is this is

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

also good for you and the prophets of Allah what is that and actually liked it a lot. And so the Longhorn who, you know, he mentioned how much the Prophet salallahu already sent him enjoyed eating a certain variety of pumpkin and he said that whenever I used to prepare food, I used to try my best to add it to that because the Prophet sallallahu already said and loved it. And so when unicycling was thrown out of the belly of the fish, his body was so weak and frail, and Allah subhanaw taala caused this particular plant to grow, which shows that there is healing in it. What Allah subhanahu elemi, elfin Oh is he doing and we sent him

01:15:00--> 01:15:44

to his people have 100,000 or more, and they believed, so we gave them enjoyment of life for a time. So inquire of them or Prophet sallallahu wasallam does your Lord have daughters while they have sons? Or did we create the angels as females while they were witnesses? unquestionably, it is out of their invented falsehood that they say Allah has forgotten, and indeed, they're liars. Has he chosen daughters over sons? This doesn't mean that, that sons are better than daughters. This was the, the belief of the people of Makkah of the Arabs that they gave preference to sons or daughters, so that their own, you know, customs are basically being used against them that this is what you think, and

01:15:44--> 01:16:20

you ascribe to God, daughters, how dare you? What is wrong with you? How do you make judgment, then will you not be reminded? Or do you have a clearer authority than produce your scripture if you should be truthful, and they have claimed between him and the jinn, a lineage but the jinn have already known that they who made such claims will be brought to punishment Subhan Allah here, I'm mostly phone exalted as a love of what they describe. You see, the people of Makkah, the Arabs, they used to believe a stuff that Allah that,

01:16:21--> 01:17:12

that God, you know, married the jinn. And then, you know, God had angels so angels are the daughters of God, Kenny, this is even difficult to comprehend stuff that a lot. So, any this this entire false belief is being, you know, criticized over here. So So Pamela here on my Asli phone, what what ridiculous concept is this exalted is a lot about what they describe, except the chosen servants of Allah, meaning they don't say such things about Allah subhanaw taala. They only they believe in the oneness and absolute perfection of Allah zoologia. So when they worship, so when they call upon Allah, they call upon Him alone with his names and his attributes for in nakoma tar Boone, so indeed

01:17:12--> 01:17:41

you disbelievers. And whatever it is that you worship, you cannot tempt anyone away from him, except he who is to enter and burn in the hellfire. The angel said there is not among us any except that he has a known position. And indeed We are those who line up for prayer soprano, let the beginning of the suta the roles of the angels were mentioned. And here they're fixed positions are mentioned, which means that none of them moves away from their fixed positions.

01:17:42--> 01:18:24

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that there is not a space of one foot or hand spent in the sky, except that there is an angel over there prostrating or standing in prayer in praise to Allah soprano Tada. So we see that the angels even when they worship and obey Allah, they do so with discipline with organization. And that that makes you know, that worship even more beautiful, and this is something that we should also pay attention to, you know, sometimes we are praying Salah, for example. And everything is, you know, a mess around us so that we're so distracted, we're looking here, there, we're not able to focus. So when you're praying, for example,

01:18:24--> 01:19:05

the part of your house which you have dedicated as a must have, because now you're home, make sure that that place is nice and clean and organized. And you know, it's it smells good, and everybody is standing properly, because that will help you focus in your prayer, it will just make that experience even more beautiful. And we're in Elena hermosa beehoon And indeed We are those who exalt Allah. So the angels make the spear. they glorify Allah. In fact, this is the best speech when the Prophet sallallaahu orders and was asked that which speech is the best. He said the speech that Allah has chosen for his angels, and that is Subhana Allah, He will be held the he in another Hadees

01:19:05--> 01:19:47

we learn that this is actually the food of the angels. This is the sustenance of the angels. So remember, the could is spirit spiritual sustenance, if you want to make your heart healthy. If you're concerned about the health of your heart, then you must feed it the vicar of Allah, that the speech of Allah this be saying soprano let that be of saying a level of the Hamid saying I'm hungry, let that leave allegedly saying La ilaha illa Allah and indeed the disbelievers used to say, if we had, if we had a message from those of the former peoples, we would have been the chosen servants of Allah. Ne they used to say once upon a time that we don't have a scripture, this is why we don't

01:19:47--> 01:19:55

believe If only we had a scripture, but now that the scripture has come, but they disbelieved in it. So they are going to know

01:19:56--> 01:20:00

and our word has already proceeded for our servants the message

01:20:00--> 01:20:46

jurors, that indeed they would be those given victory, and that indeed our soldiers will be those who overcome. So Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, leave them for a time and see what will befall them for they are going to see them for our punishment. Are they impatient, but when it descends in their territory, that evil is the morning of those who were warned and leave them for a time and see for they are going to see so the Hernando Becker, a biller is at a Mayo seafood. exalted is your Lord the Lord of Might, above what they describe. He is as perfect as he is free from the lies that are invented about him was salam, ala l mursaleen. And peace upon the messengers

01:20:46--> 01:21:32

where they spoke the truth and delivered the truth. When hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. And praise to Allah, Lord of the World's Fair he is the Exalted in Might. So we see now that there is the speed at the end of the sutra. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that at the end of a gathering, or at the end of you know a conversation, we must also say Subhana Allah Houma will be handed a shadow Allah Allah Allah illa Anta esta Furukawa to buoy Lake why, because this is a form of kuthodaw, expiation for anything wrong. That may have been said accidentally or out of ignorance. So we should also make it a habit to say that sunart slot Bismillahirrahmanirrahim slot one call

01:21:32--> 01:22:24

Annie, the Vic, saw by the Koran containing reminder, but those who disbelieve instead of paying attention to that reminder, what do they do? They are in pride, and dissension. Shinnecock, so they refuse to believe. You see, chicag is to oppose someone to refuse to believe to be very, very stubborn in one's denial. shockula rasa is to break a stick. So this stubbornness of theirs has created division. They they refuse to accept to believe come lucknam in cobbling him in counting how many a generation have we destroyed before them, and they then called out but it was not a time for escape. And they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves a human being

01:22:24--> 01:23:08

from their neighborhood. And the disbelievers say this is a magician and a liar. Has he made the gods only one God? Indeed, this is a curious thing. And the eminent among them went forth saying continue and be patient over the defense of your gods. Indeed, this is a thing intended, meaning this man has some hidden agenda over here. He has some bigger plan. So be firm about your idolatry. We have not heard of this in the latest religion. This is not but a fabrication. Has the message been revealed to him out of all of us? You see the people of Makkah, they were very, very arrogant. The the deniers among them, that if you know, someone had to be made a profit, Why him? Why him

01:23:08--> 01:23:45

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because they look down on him. They thought that it would be a rich person. And you see the people have thought if even when the Prophet sallallahu Ortiz in a went to them, you know, and he asked them for their support, to and also to believe one of them. He said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that I am not even going to speak to you. Because if you're really a prophet, then you are too holy. And if you are a liar, then you are too beneath me that I should even speak to you. So me these people were filled with pride. So the set has the message been revealed to him out of all of us. The real thing is, rather they are in doubt about my message.

01:23:45--> 01:24:27

Rather, they're not they're no longer in doubt they see the truth. The thing is, they have not yet tasted my punishment, so they're heedless? Or do they have the depositories of the mercy of your Lord the Exalted in Might the store? Do they decide? No? Or is there is the dominion of the heavens and the earth and what is between them? Then let them ascend through any ways of access, meaning show your might, they are but soldiers who will be defeated. They're among the companies meaning just like the people of the past, look at what happened to the great numbers of Pharaoh's army, any whether or not all drowned? Absolutely, they were the people of New denied before them, and the

01:24:27--> 01:24:59

tribe of odd and fit our own the owner of stakes. You see stakes are mentioned here, because in our own, he used to travel with his armies to far off places, and they would camp in different places. And they would use stakes to pitch their tents. So those are the companies and the tribes of the mood and the people of loot and the companions of the thinking. Those are the companies that were truly powerful, but what became of them, each of them denied the messengers so my penalty was justified, and these disbelievers await not but one blast of the horn.

01:25:00--> 01:25:42

for it, there will be no delay. And they say Our Lord, hasten for us our share of punishment before the day of account. This is extreme foolishness. But this is what the people of Makkah would say that you know, what is the punishment is coming, it should come right now. So the Prophet salallahu already sent him is comforted here, it's been earlier, my echo Don't be patient over what they say. And remember our servant that would the possessor of strength, indeed, he was one who repeatedly turned back to Allah. So take a lesson from his life. You see, whenever we are going through some difficulty, and of course, there will be a lot of difficulty in life. It is very important that we

01:25:42--> 01:26:24

read about we reflect over the stories of the prophets, because we will find inspiration we will find lesson the stories of the prophets were revealed in the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu artizan was informed about the stories of the prophets. Why? Because that was a source of comfort for him. So we also need that comfort. And so it is important that we reflect over the stories of the prophets for our own benefit, not just to increase in our knowledge, not just to learn about history about the past, but to take comfort to take lesson, so that will barely be sent out. Who was he? He was a man of strength, Allah had given him a lot of strength. And he was not arrogant. He was not

01:26:24--> 01:26:45

rebellious. How was he a web he repeatedly turned back to Allah, he would continue to seek Allah subhanaw taala as help. Indeed, we subjected the mountains to praise with him, exalting a lot in the late afternoon and after sunrise. So we should also make this be in the morning and in the evening.

01:26:47--> 01:27:27

We learn about the wilderness around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the recitation of the board was made easy for him. He used to order that his writing animals be settled and would finish reciting the board before even they were settled. And he would never eat except from the earnings of his own hard work. His own manual work was laid on my Shula 10 and the birds were assembled, all with him repeating praises. So any This is so beautiful. Imagine he's making this the hand the birds are also gathered around him, and the mountains any what what scene would that be? How beautiful so what is the lesson that the Prophet sallallahu Ortiz and it was being told

01:27:27--> 01:27:52

over here, that you also seek Allah's help through this be by glorifying Allah, that will be your sustenance, that will be your source of strength. So anytime you feel down, start making this be glorify and praise Allah. And we strengthened his kingdom, and gave him wisdom and discernment in speech. And all of these are great blessings.

01:27:53--> 01:28:33

And has there come to you the news of the adversaries when they climbed over the wall of his prayer chamber, when they entered upon the booth and he was alarmed by them. They said, fear not. We are two adversaries, one of whom has wronged the other, so judge between us with truth and do not exceed it and guide us to the sound path. They said Indeed, this My brother has a 99 us female sheep, and I have one. So he said, interest her to me, give, give yours to me so that I have 100. And he has overpowered me in speech, meaning through argument, he is trying to convince me he's trying to forcibly take my sheep away from me. So is that fair? Please solve our dispute for us. That

01:28:33--> 01:29:19

wilderness Sam said he has certainly wronged you in demanding your sheep in addition to his and indeed, many associates oppress one another, meaning a lot of people who work together, who are close to each other, end up oppressing one another except for those who believe and do righteous deeds, and few are they and this sudden, any incident where imagine he's busy in prayer, and two people all of a sudden jump over the wall and come in to present his case. And they asked him for an answer for a solution. This experience made the old earliest and I realized something else. puntata says, well, London, wood and David, and that wood became certain than we have tried him and he asked

01:29:19--> 01:29:57

forgiveness of his Lord and fell down bowing in prostration and turned in repentance to Allah, meaning that Buddha Salaam understood that this situation was teaching him a lesson and he understood that lesson. Now what exactly was that matter? Allah, Allah has not disclosed it over here, but though there is not understood, you see, Allah spawn tada guides us in different ways. One is that we are given instruction and knowledge right? This is the knowledge of the books the knowledge of, you know the verses of the Quran. If this happens, this should be done. This is right and this is wrong, this is the reward and this is the punishment, etc, etc. But then there's another

01:29:57--> 01:30:00

type of guidance which is situations

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

Which has baniya meaning through a different through a situation, a loss, pentatonic gives us clarity. By making us experience something, we are able to realize our mistake, we're able to see a better option, we're able to understand, you know, the depth of something, and we're able to any, to make the right decision. So, it is not essential, it is not enough to just learn from books, it is also important that we learn through our experiences, we learn lessons that life teaches us. And for that, we need to have an open mind and open heart We need to be honest with ourselves. And you see, this is why mozzarella salad was made to travel in the company of a hidden so that he would learn

01:30:47--> 01:31:12

through experience what he would not learn from a book. So the other is Sam understood through that situation, something that he needed to learn. And that made him realize his mistake. So the situation that he was in served as a sign. And sometimes this happens, you're going through a certain situation and you all of a sudden you come across a post that is so relevant to you,

01:31:13--> 01:31:54

you are going through a personal problem. And then you hear something in a lecture that is like exactly the solution that you needed. So what is this, this is Allah subhanaw taala this guidance that we should willingly accept, How beautiful are the ways of Allah for Allah fontanella who danik so we forgive him that and indeed for him is nearest to us and a good place of return. So you see, so you see the elderly submit center over here. So this is also a verse of prostration. I will say though, that he said that I saw in a dream that I am under a tree and I was praying and it was reciting sort of slot. And when I reached this ayah the tree prostrated and said 11 little fiddly,

01:31:54--> 01:32:32

beha 11. Mahathir, I need to have wisdom, with this levy has chakra with the Kabbalah, mini Kamata, cobalamin, arctica, the Buddha such that the who, that Allah forgive me because of this, and erase a sin of mine, and record this as gratitude for me, and accept this for me, as you accept it from the Buddha, his frustration, so of course it was there, it was amazed by this dream. So in the soil, he informed the Prophet sallallahu urges them about this. And the Prophet sallallahu already sent him asked him the Did you also make such that? He said, No, I didn't, he said that you are more worthy of making such that. So then the Prophet sallallahu radiocentre, recited sort of slot, until when he

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

reached this ayah he made such that, and he said the same that, that he had heard the tree saying, meaning this neuron. So this shows us that we should also make this neuron when we make such the tzedaka we said Oh, that would indeed we have made you a successor upon the earth. So judge between the people in truth, and do not follow your own desire as it will lead you astray from the way of Allah. Indeed, those who go astray from the way of Allah will have a severe punishment for having forgotten the day of account. And we did not create the heaven and the earth, and that between them aimlessly. That is the assumption of those who disbelieve, so woe to those who disbelieve from the

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

fire, or should we treat those who believe and do righteous deeds like corrupters in the land? Or should we treat those who fear Allah like the wicked? No way, they're not going to end up in the same place. This is a blessed book keytab on Enza now who alayka mobile raccoon, this is a blessing Book which We have revealed to you, all of it is blessing. Why have we revealed it to you, Leah double it so that they might reflect upon its verses? And then after reflection, what just admire the beauty of the Quran, because this is what many people you know, they find joy in that you know, just read book after book, or listen to lecture after lecture. And be amazed by all this was

01:33:56--> 01:34:42

mentioned the beginning and now this is being mentioned. And this word means this and this word means that just admire the beauty of the Quran is that the goal? No Walia to that cannot Allah Al Bab and that those of understanding would be reminded. And if this is the purpose of the book, that we take a lesson we remember it's its teachings, its messages, and we follow them. The Quran, remember, is not just to impress us, you know with its words, unfortunately, you know, we have become more lost in the beauty and the contents of the Quran, then the teachings of the Quran. When we think about, you know, our connection with the Quran, we think it is either to master its

01:34:42--> 01:34:59

recitation, so we go and we try to master and perfect its recitation. Or if we think about something else, we think about, you know, perfecting our understanding of the Arabic language and admiring the Arabic of the Quran. The Quran did not come to impress our minds.

01:35:00--> 01:35:27

The Quran came to change our hearts, our lives. And this is what we need to do. This is what we need to take from the Quran. So remember, learning Arabic, it is a means not a goal. Understanding that subset of the Quran is a means not a goal, perfecting the recitation of the Quran, memorizing its words, this is a means not a goal. What is the goal? Well, yet the color all

01:35:28--> 01:36:16

that the people of understanding would be reminded, take a lesson, implement this book, because I know how to Lakha our alayka the Quran will be an argument for you or against you, it will either argue for you that Oh Allah highly adoring him, or Allah be you know, zidoo give him more or Allah be pleased with him, either the Quran will argue for you, or it will argue against you to so we don't want to call on arguing against us. And then we see in this ayah that the Quran is Mubarak, meaning every single verse of the Quran is Mubarak it is bless it, how that every eye of the Quran, either it guides you do something good, or it stops you from something harmful, or it brings some

01:36:16--> 01:37:01

kind of benefit in this life, or in the next life. So there is nothing in this world that is as blessing as the Quran is every single ayah and this is why even when you recite Alif Lam Meem you get rewarded. So this Quran is mobarak. And we think that the blessing of the Quran is that you know, when a girl is getting married and leaving our house, you put the Quran up and you make her walk under it right? Or that before you sleep you put the must have under your pillow, or that you keep a copy in your in your in your car, right? The quote on his mobile cow when you recite it when you reflect upon it, when you implement it. So derive the full blessing from the Quran. What will

01:37:01--> 01:37:43

happen as a leader would assume a man and two that would we gave Sulaiman an excellent servant. Indeed, he was one repeatedly turning back to Allah mentioned when they were exhibited before him in the afternoon deploys, standing, raise horses, horses, beautiful. And he said, Indeed, I have loved these good things for the remembrance of my Lord, until the horses galloped away, going out of sight. Meaning he said, I love these horses for the remembrance of my Lord. I like them, because they remind me of Allah. I like them because of Allah, that Allah gave these horses to me. And their beauty and their strength reminds me of a less favours on me. This is why I like them. And another

01:37:43--> 01:38:09

way of interpreting this ayah is that he said, Indeed, I gave preference to the love of good things over the remembrance of my Lord, until the sun disappeared into the curtain of darkness, because it is said that he was admiring his horses until the sunset, and he was unable to make his you know, with of that time, meaning that the certain worship that he performed at that time, he missed that and sometimes it happens that we get so caught up in enjoying good things that we forget about our, our worship.

01:38:10--> 01:38:48

Now, we noticed here though, that horses are called height, good, because they truly are good. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that goodness is tied to the four locks of horses until the Day of Resurrection. So there is blessing in horses, so they manner they said, I loved horses, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved horses. And I had these we learned how he was, you know, twisting the fourth, he was twisting the for lack of a horse with his fingers. And he was admiring the horse. And he also said that rub the horses on their foreheads, and pray for Buttercup for them, and do not tie Finn ropes around their necks because that will hurt them. He said return

01:38:48--> 01:39:31

them to me and said about striking their legs and necks, or he was passing his hand over their legs and necks, meaning he began petting them. And we certainly tried so they met and placed on his throne, a body. Then he returned. It has said that, you know he prayed for he wanted a child who would inherit from him and he did have a child but that child was you know, have paralyzed. So then he turned back to Allah. And remember sometimes, you know, when we ask Allah, Allah for something, and we don't get exactly what we asked for, even that is teaching us something. You know, it's not that Allah has rejected you, Allah doesn't care about you know, Allah subhanaw taala decided that

01:39:31--> 01:39:59

particular result for you because there's something you need to learn from that experience. And so they manually listened and learned some anab he returned, he turned back to Allah. He said, My Lord, forgive me and grant me a kingdom such as will not belong to anyone after me. Indeed you are the Restore. You are unwell herb. You see, he asked for forgiveness before he asked for kingship for kingdom. Why? Because for the right to servant

01:40:00--> 01:40:41

Forgiveness is more important than the things of this world. Because the things of this world, they will come to an end, what we need is forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. So no matter what a righteous person has of this world, their Deen their ibadah their relationship with Allah is of utmost importance to them. So this girl was accepted, and no one got the power and abilities that Sulaiman or the username was given. So we subject it to him, the wind, blowing by his command, gently wherever he directed, and also the devils of jinn, every builder and diver and others bound together in shackles. So he even had control authority over the Jin sopran Allah, we said, this is

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

our gift, so grant, or withhold without account, meaning Allah gave him blessings. And he also gave him power and authority to do whatever that he wanted. And indeed, for him, his nearness to us, and a good place of return. And remember our servant, a eWb, an excellent example of patience, when he called to his Lord, indeed, shaitan has touched me with hardship and torment. This shows us that some illnesses are because of the effect of shaitan wood corbetta genic. So he was told, strike the ground with your foot, this is a spring for a cool bath and drink any This is Shiva right under your foot. And that healing is coming from what from water, but you can only see it and benefit from it

01:41:24--> 01:42:04

when Allah subhanaw taala allows when a lot puts healing in that for you. And we granted him his family and alike number with them as a mercy from Us and a reminder for those of understanding. So we see that a lot returned his health and his wealth, and he gave him better than what he previously had. And there is a huge lesson in this for us that when a person is patient in illness, and in trial than a loss pronto. Todos reward is generous. So if in sickness, a person does not complain, or become upset with Allah, instead, they're grateful and patient, then Allah will give them Shiva and their health will be better than what it was previously, we learned a hadith that the Prophet of

01:42:04--> 01:42:48

Allah eWb remained in his trial for 18 years. And the close and distant meaning all people that were around him, left him, and Allah inspired him to strike with his foot. And with that water that gushed out from where he stuck his foot, Allah subhanaw taala removed all his illness, and he became the most handsome he ever was, well, he would be a deca little fan. And we said, Take in your hand a bunch of grass, and take in your hand a bunch of grass, and strike with it and do not break your oath. You see an illness, people say things to their family, because of course, they're human. They don't always mean it. But you know, when a person is ill, sometimes they say things which they don't

01:42:48--> 01:43:33

really mean. So it is said that a YouTuber, his son, he was very, he was very upset with his wife about something. And he took an oath at that time, that whenever he would get better, he would hit her 100 times. But this would be completely unfair, any Why? So Allah subhanaw taala created a way out for him. Indeed, we found him patient, an excellent servant, indeed, he was one repeatedly turning back to a law. You see, and this shows us that if for the most part, a person is patient, then Allah subhanaw taala will overlook their deficiencies. Because Allah knows our situation. You know, when a person falls, ill and they're suffering in their body, you know, they're tired, they're

01:43:33--> 01:44:18

exhausted, they're in so much pain, then every little thing bothers you, right? And then you're trying to be patient, but you're only human, you will slip here and there. So you play Santa, any because he was so patient over all of us, tada, he pardoned him in this matter. And remember, our servants Ibrahim is how can you and your qub those of strength and religious vision only ad well absorbed, this is so beautiful, their hands are mentioned. And their vision is mentioned. Why? Because you need hands strength, ability, and you know to do good work. And you also need vision, understanding, perception, realization knowledge, in order to avail the opportunities that almost

01:44:18--> 01:44:28

pentatonic presents to you, in a house now home. Indeed, we chose them. Why for an exclusive quality and what was that the

01:44:29--> 01:45:00

remembrance of the home of the hereafter. When a person remembers that there is a home after this home there is a life after this life, then they use their hand and their vision in obedience to Allah and indeed they are to us among the chosen and outstanding, chosen and outstanding. Why? Because they remember the hereafter and they use their strength and there will be Allah and remember is Mary Elisa and will kephale and all are among the outside

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

Standing up. This is a reminder and indeed for the righteous is a good place of return. genetti Arden gardens of perpetual residents whose doors will be opened to them Subhanallah the doors of genda will be open for them even before they come to Geneva because remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will be the first to reach the gate of Jannah and he will intercede so that the gates of Jenna are opened, and then the gates of Jenna will be open we learned that there are eight gates of Paradise, and each gate is as wide as the distance between Makkah and Hermia or Mecca and Busan as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained, so these gates are huge. Why? So that

01:45:46--> 01:46:15

people enter Genoa, together, together. You see when you when you're in a queue, it feels so bad when you're all the way in the back and you see people entering into the grocery store before you Subhanallah you feel like you know that wave is so painful and you feel left out, you feel like you're going to miss out. So people in general will enter together because the gates of gender are vast, they're huge. So they will enter as rose as a spoof.

01:46:16--> 01:46:51

And we we learned that people will be called from different gates of Paradise and some people will be called from all gates of paradise. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that whoever spends to have any type of property meaning a complete set of pair, in the way of Allah will be called into agenda with the words all slave of Allah, this is good meaning come from here, whoever is among the people of prayer will be called from the gate of Salah. Whoever is among the people of jihad will be called from the gate of jihad, whoever is among the people of sadaqa will be called from the gate of sadaqa. Whoever is among the people of fasting will be called from the gate of

01:46:52--> 01:47:33

Allah yen and Allah Yan. What does it mean? It means someone who is well watered, meaning their thirst will be quenched. Allahu Akbar. So Bobo asked that on messenger of Allah, is it possible that someone will be called from all of the gates and he said yes, and I hope that you will be among them. So move on to hatherleigh who will have web reclining within them, they will call their in for abundant fruit and drink because now is the time to chill and enjoy. And with them will be women limiting their glances and of equal age. This is what you the righteous are promised for the day of account in the hether lettuce corner. Indeed, this is our provision. for it, there is no depletion,

01:47:33--> 01:48:17

this is so but indeed for the transgressors is an evil place of return. Hell, which they will enter to burn and wretched is the resting place. This select them taste it is scalding water and foul purlins and other punishments of its type in various kinds. its inhabitants will say, this is a company bursting in with you know, welcome for them, it's already really tight here. No welcome for them, indeed, they will burn in the fire, they will say nor you know, welcome for you, you our leaders brought this upon us and wretched as a settlement to see how they're fighting, cursing each other constantly. They will say Our Lord, whoever brought this upon us increase for him double

01:48:17--> 01:49:00

punishment and the fire. And they will say, why do we not see men who we used to count among the worst? Any people in hell will wonder how can we don't see certain individuals here? We used to think that they were the losers and he will look down on them. But we don't see them here. Where are they? Is it because we took them in ridicule when they weren't deserving of it? Or has our vision turned away from them that we cannot see them? The thing is that there are many people who are belittled who were looked down upon in the world who people condemn, judge and abandon, but such individuals may be very special in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. So we must be very careful

01:49:00--> 01:49:44

before we pass judgment on a believing servant of Allah. You don't know which repentance of their is will cause them to enter Jannah which good deed of theirs will cause them to reach the highest levels of paradise. And especially Don't belittle people because of their worldly disadvantages. We learn in a hadith that the first to enter Paradise among the creation of Allah will be the full cut off those who are poor and Mahajan, those who migrated and the Prophet sallallahu oralism explained about them, that some of them are such that they die with unfulfilled needs in the world. Meaning that meaning they have wishes and goals and you know things that they desire, but they never managed

01:49:44--> 01:50:00

to fulfill them. But Allah subhanaw taala will admit them into agenda and fulfill every wish of theirs in Nadella cola Hulk indeed that is truth, the quarrelling of the people of the fire. Say I am only a warner and there is

01:50:00--> 01:50:39

Not any deity except Allah, the One the prevailing Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them be Exalted in Might the Perpetual Forgiver say it is great news from which you are turning away. I had no knowledge of the exalted assembly of angels when they were disputing, meaning when the when Adam or Lisa was created, it has not been revealed to me except that I am a clear Warner, meaning I was not there, I didn't see it myself, I only convey what has been revealed to me. So mentioned when your Lord said to the angels, indeed, I am going to create a human being from clay. So when I have proportion to him and breathed into him of my creative soul, then fall down to

01:50:39--> 01:51:28

him in prostration. So the angels prostrated all of them entirely, except at least he was arrogant and became among the disbelievers. Allah said, Oh, at least what prevented you from prostrating to that which I created with my hands? Were you arrogant then? Or were you already among the hottie? Meaning what's the what's the reason? What reason do you have, he said, I am better than him, You created me from fire and created him from clay sopran Allah, at least was the first person to use analogy, PS, and this PS this analogy was very wrong, because fire is not better than clay, the nature of fire is that it is destructive. Whereas clay is productive. Fire is hot, it burns and clay

01:51:28--> 01:52:11

is cooling. Right? It's, it calms you. And so really, there one is not any fire is not better than clean, but shaken. And he said that fire is better than clay. And based on that analogy, he refused to obey Allah subhanaw taala. And we must be very careful, because sometimes we also come up with some, you know, arguments, which in our heads are very logical. And based on those arguments, we refuse to obey Allah subhanaw taala any of these arguments, they are based on ignorance, not logic, Allah, tada said, then get out of paradise for indeed you are expelled, and indeed upon you is my curse until the Day of Recompense. He said, My Lord, then reprieve me until the Day they are

01:52:11--> 01:52:55

resurrected, unless So indeed you are of those repre meaning you will live until when, until the day of the time well known the Day of Judgment, at least said by your might, I will surely mislead them all, except among them, your chosen servants, I will not be able to persuade them unless at the truth is my oath and the truth I say, that I will surely fill Hell with you and those of them that follow you all together, say Oh, Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I do not ask you for the Quran, any payment, and I am not of the pretensions. And I am not of the pretentious woman. No Minamata can defame meaning I state the truth exactly as it is. And really the Prophet sallallahu

01:52:55--> 01:53:37

already said it was not fake. He was not pretentious. He wasn't public, when he was in private. So it is very important that we remain true to ourselves regardless of where we are, be yourself. Because a fake display is not long lasting, it is not enduring. And part of this is to acknowledge your humility, your lack of knowledge, to not pretend to be annoyed, all we learned that a beloved Miss Rudra de la hora and who said that oh people, if somebody knows something he can say, but if he does not know what he should say, Allah knows better, because it is a sign of having knowledge to say about something which one does not know, to say that Allah knows better. Allah has said to his

01:53:37--> 01:54:14

prophet, that and then he recited this ayah which means that don't pretend to know everything, especially when you don't know everything, acknowledge your, your ignorance, and this is also part of knowledge to say that I don't know it, that Allah subhanaw taala knows everything. In what illogical Allah mean it is but a reminder to the world's called honest for all and you will surely know the truth of its information after a time meaning if right now you reject very soon will come a point where you will not be able to reject sooner to Zoomer Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim.

01:54:15--> 01:55:00

The revelation of the Quran is from Allah, the Exalted in Might the wise, indeed, we have sent down to you the book in truth. So worship Allah, being sincere to him in religion, unquestionably, for Allah is the Pure religion so worship is exclusively for Him, because He alone is God. And those who take protectors besides him say, we only worship them that they may bring us nearer to Allah in position sopran Allah, this is what the people at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Ernestina would say, what that we only hold on to these pious, you know, elders and these idols and these righteous and the saints. Why, so we can reach God through them because you know, we are

01:55:00--> 01:55:46

To sinful, so we cannot call upon him directly. So we go through the righteous. When we fail the this is a wrong analogy. Why compare Allah to a king of the world who is weak and arrogant? Allah subhanaw taala is corrib He is the all powerful he is aligning and he knows his creation. He is not too busy to listen to you. He is not any inaccessible just because you have committed a few sins. Allah subhanaw taala is buddy, you don't need an intermediary. So it is it is important that we call upon Allah directly Allah Allah Allah hid Dino Harless, Indeed, Allah will judge between them concerning that over which they differ, Indeed, Allah does not guide he who is a liar, and confirmed

01:55:46--> 01:56:30

disbeliever. So these ions make it very, very clear that whatever we do, we should do it sincerely for the sake of Allah, because in nevel armello, Binya and we learn that Allah does not accept any deed, except that which is purely for him and seeking his face. So whatever we do, whether you know, we are reciting the Quran, or it is that we are doing something in private or public, our goal should be to please Allah. Because if it's not for Allah, it will not be accepted by Allah, and then it will be useless. If Allah had intended to take a sun, he could have chosen from what he creates, whatever He willed, Exalted is He He is a love the one the prevailing, he created the heavens and

01:56:30--> 01:57:14

earth in truth, he wraps the night over the day and wraps the day over the night, and has subjected the sun in the moon, each running its course for a specified term, unquestionably, he is the Exalted in Might, the Perpetual Forgiver He created you from one soul, then he made from it, its mate, and he produced for you from the grazing livestock, eight meats, he creates you in the wombs of your mother's creation after creation within three darknesses that is Allah your Lord, To Him belongs dominion, there is no deity except Him. So how are you averted? Don't you get it? If you disbelieve, Indeed, Allah is free from need of you. And he does not approve of his servants disbelief while I

01:57:14--> 01:57:56

yelled by Larry Bird he and cowfish were in the school year, the hula comb, and if you are grateful, he approves it for you. That is what he likes for you. And no bear of burdens will bear the burden of another than to your Lord is your return. And he will inform you about what you use to do. Indeed, he is knowing of that within the chests. So we see over here that Allah subhanaw taala likes sugar good for us. He wants us to be grateful, because gratitude benefits us. And remember, on the last point, it gives us blessings. Why is that? Learn the Quran so that you are grateful, which is why on the Day of Judgment, and most parents are will call a person and will say all son of Adam, I

01:57:56--> 01:58:45

gave you this I gave you this I gave you this ain't a shocker. They're like where is the gratitude for that? So, when we use the blessings of Allah, we must show gratitude. And in a Hadees, we learned that authority will Shakib Beeman Zilla to salt msrb, that the person who eats and is grateful, is at the same position as the person who fasts and is patient. So any, the goal is not to deprive ourselves of blessings. The goal is that in whatever state, Allah subhanaw taala puts us, we we surrender to Him. So if a situation requires us to be patient, we observe patients. And if Allah, Allah has blessed us with certain blessings, than we enjoy them, and we show gratitude, and when

01:58:45--> 01:59:28

adversity touches men, he calls upon his Lord, turning to Him alone, than when He bestows on him a favor from himself. He forgets him whom he called upon before, and the attributes to Allah equals to mislead people from his way, say, enjoy your disbelief for a little indeed, you are of the companions of the Fire is one who is devoutly obedient during periods of the night press training and standing, fearing the Hereafter, and hoping for the mercy of his Lord like what who does not Are they the same, no way say are those who know equal to those who do not know only they will remember who are people of understanding. So two types of people are mentioned here. One is a person who

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

knows alladhina Yana moon, and the other is the one who does not know what ladina lay on the moon. The person who knows worships Allah in the hours of the night, making such the standing in prayer, combining fear with hope. And then there's the other person who sleeps through the night, lazy through the day, not worshipping Allah, not remembering Allah, rather, either he is an extreme fear. So he has despaired or he is an extreme hope so he has become heedless.

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

So remember, we have to first of all, give. So remember, we have to first of all, sacrifice, personal comfort at times in order to worship Allah subhanaw taala. This is why the night worship is mentioned here. It is good that we worship Allah during the day. Excellent. But we also have to dedicate some of the night in order to worship Allah. Because that that is an evidence of sincerity. If a person is praying during the day, then Okay, why not, but when you're sacrificing from your personal comfort and rest, and you're giving preference to worshiping Allah, that shows that a person is sincere to Allah, that shows that a person is not seeking the approval of people. And also

02:00:48--> 02:01:29

we see here that we have to combine hope and fear because this is the way of the knowledgeable, we don't become extremely afraid that we despair in Allah's mercy that we say you know what, there's no hope for me, nor do we go to the other extreme that we say that Oh, Allah will forgive me no matter what I do. We have to combine hope and fear. This is the way of the knowledgeable say or my servants who have believed fear your Lord, for those who do good in this world is good, and the earth of allies spacious indeed the patient will be given the reward without account in the manual for sobre una de la Hornby lady Hey Sal, Allahu Akbar. You see, for every other good deed the reward is

02:01:29--> 02:01:45

measured, it will be counted, it will be calculated, but the reward for sub ardila doula horn who said that it will be given in full, any without measuring, without even counting, it will not be measured, it will not be quantified because Allah says the lady herself.

02:01:46--> 02:02:29

So think about it. How great is patience, say indeed I have been commanded to worship Allah, being sincere to him in religion, and I have been commanded to be the first among you have the Muslims say indeed I fear if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous day, say Allah alone, do I worship sincere to him in my religion, so worship what you will besides Him, you do whatever you want. But as for me, I will only worship Allah say, indeed the losers are the ones who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection, unquestionably, that is the manifest loss, they will have canopies of fire above them, and below them canopies by that Allah threatens his

02:02:29--> 02:03:15

servants, all my servants, then fear me, we should fear Allah, but those who have avoided fabu, lest they worship it, and turned back to Allah for them or good tidings to give good tidings to my servants. Who are they, those who listen to speech and follow the best of it, meaning they listen to Allah's words, attentively, they pay attention, they're not distracted, and then they choose the best option for them. They don't look at the easiest or the most convenient, or the least, no, they they look for the best option. And then even our best said that this is the person who listens to all sorts of things, but then he only selects what is good for his own action. Any Fayetteville una

02:03:15--> 02:03:57

escena una ecola, da, da, da, Houma, LA, those are the ones whom Allah has guided. And those are people of understanding any, a person of understanding doesn't just repeat everything that he hears everything that he sees, no, he doesn't just do whatever he sees. A lot of people do that any trend that is famous, they start copying it, without even checking if it is acceptable to Allah, or they start repeating the same words that they have heard without even finding out what those words actually mean. So this is not a sign of a person of knowledge, a person of understanding, yes, they get exposed to different things. But when it comes to their actions, when it comes to their speech,

02:03:57--> 02:04:39

they're very careful, then, is one who has deserved the decree of punishment to be guided, then can you save one who is in the fire, but those who have feared their Lord, for them are chambers above them, chambers built high beneath which reverse flow? This is a promise of Allah, Allah does not fail in his promise. Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky and makes it flow as springs and rivers and the earth and he produces there by crops of varying colors, then they dry and you see them turned yellow, then he makes some scattered debris. Indeed, and that is a reminder for those of understanding this is how life is so is one whose chest Allah has expanded to accept Islam,

02:04:39--> 02:05:00

from inshallah, high level sadhana hulan Islam, and he is upon a light from his Lord, then woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah. Those are in manifest error. So there are two types of people. One, someone whose chest Allah has opened up for Islam, so it's them has now you know, it has taken

02:05:00--> 02:05:45

Place in their chest. It dwells in their chest. And then there is another person whose heart is hard to hard to even remember Allah. So the question is, how is it that we become the first category? How is it that we become of those people whose chest Allah has opened up to Islam, even if I am said that there are causes, there are reasons for this one is hedaya guidance. Anto hate meeting, strengthen your belief and the oneness of Allah and ask Allah subhanaw taala for guidance, rubbish rattling surgery, and Allah will open up your chest to Islam, then knowledge because knowledge, you know it, it gives you ease, it expands your understanding, then turning back to Allah again and

02:05:45--> 02:06:29

again, repeatedly asking ALLAH, then number four is remembering Allah subhanaw taala consistently, number five, treating people in a good way. Number six, being brave and courageous feeding when it's time to act upon the knowledge, then don't be hesitant over there. Be courageous over there. Number seven, cleaning the heart. Don't keep graduates in your heart. Number eight, leaving useless things. These are causes that will cause that will allow your chest to be opened up to Islam, for you to be able to follow Islam confidently for Islam to become a part of you your identity. Because you see, sometimes we have heard of things that we're supposed to do as Muslims, but we don't have the

02:06:29--> 02:07:12

courage, we don't have the confidence. So these are things that we need to do to develop that. And then the hardened hearts are condemned over here. The Prophet sallallahu radiocentre said, mercy is taken away only from him who is miserable. So how do you fix a heart that has become hard? Ask Allah subhanaw taala to soften your heart and then also practice compassion. How do you practice compassion? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said if you want to soften the heart, then feed the needy and pass your hand over an orphans head meaning go help those who are in need especially give them food and take it yourself. And then people children especially show them compassion, a

02:07:12--> 02:07:56

love una Zilla arsenal. Hadees Allah has sent out the best statement the Quran, a consistent book wherein is reiteration meaning there's repetition in the Koran, not contradiction. Why is there repetition so that if at one point a person doesn't understand something, they're able to understand it at another place? So what happens to the people who believe in it, the skins shiver there from of those who fear their Lord, then their skins and their hearts relax at the remembrance of Allah. That is the guidance of Allah, by which he guides whom He wills and one whom Allah leaves his tree. For him there is no guide. So the people who truly fear Allah, when they hear the Quran, their skins

02:07:56--> 02:08:42

shiver, their hearts tremble, why out of fear, but then as they keep listening, as they keep reflecting their hearts and their skins relax, why, out of hope, out of hope in Allah's mercy, so this is what the Koran does. It causes you to feel fear, sometimes a lot of fear, then you keep reading, you keep listening, and it also gives you hope. And this data, you've recited this verse, and he said, this is the characteristic of the Friends of a lot of the Olia of Allah, that when they listen to the Quran, their eyes weep, their hearts soften. It's not that they faint, or they stop thinking rationally where they go crazy. No, they remain very normal, but it's the heart that is

02:08:42--> 02:09:24

affected. So then their actions also change, then is He who will shield with his face the worst of the punishment on the Day of Resurrection, like one who is secure from it, and it will be set to the wrongdoers tastes, what you use to earn those before them denied and punishment came upon them from where they did not even perceive. So Allah made them taste disgrace and worldly life, but the punishment of the Hereafter is greater if they only knew And We have certainly presented for the people in this on from every kind of example that they might remember. They may wake up it is an Arabic on without any deviants that they might become righteous. Allah presents an example a slave

02:09:24--> 02:10:00

owned by quarreling partners, and another belonging exclusively to one men, are they equal in comparison? No way. One person's life is a living hell, and the other is at peace. Alhamdulillah Praise be to Allah that you understand, but most of them do not know. Which is why they keep caught they keep turning towards other than Allah. The thing is that if you make a law the center of your life, meaning that you are concerned about pleasing Allah azza wa jal, you are focused on worshiping Him, obeying Him and you measure everything in your life according to his standards than your life.

02:10:00--> 02:10:44

will be easy. But if your goal is to please people, this person and that person and those people, then you will only be creating difficulty for yourself in Nakama. Yet on what in the homemaker tone, indeed you are to die, and indeed they are to die, no matter how long you live, death is coming. Some in comio malkia material have become the dust the moon, that indeed you on the Day of Resurrection before your Lord will dispute, meaning on the Day of Judgment, you will argue with each other. Why, because each person will come demanding their rights and remedies we learn. The claimants will get their claims on the Day of Resurrection, meaning each person will come forward

02:10:44--> 02:10:56

making demands that this is my right Give it back to me. And I heard these return, that whoever has wronged his brother should ask for his pardon before his death, as in the hereafter there will be neither a dinner nor a dinner.

02:10:57--> 02:11:38

So on the Day of Judgment, you will not be able to pay people pay people back on that day they will ask you for your good deeds. And Hades we learned whoever dies owing a dinar or a dyrham. It will be paid back from his good deeds, because then there will be no dinner or the home.
