Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:09--> 00:00:29

are going to show Pinilla Dean Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish likely Sati were Sidley Emery. wahala Dr. tam melissani. yufka who Kohli Allahumma the Colby was a deadly sin. He was also him at the Colby mania I mean,

00:00:31--> 00:01:16

Mr. Machar below him. Obama said that when you recite the Quran, then recite in a way that both your ears can listen and your heart can comprehend, because the ears are the connection between the tongue and the heart, which means that when a person recites the Quran, they should not just recite with the intention of completing a certain portion of the Quran, but the intention should be to benefit from what they are listening to. So when you come across a verse, for example, that mentions the mercy of Allah, then interact with the Quran, meaning seek Allah subhanaw taala as mercy when you come across a verse that mentions punishment, then again, ask Allah subhanaw taala for

00:01:16--> 00:01:57

protection from the punishment. And when you come across in ayah, that gives hope, then ask Allah subhanaw taala with hope call upon him with hope. And we see that this was the way in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would also recite the Quran. We learned that when he recited the verses which refer to the glory of Allah, He glorified him, and when he recited the verses which tell how Allah subhanaw taala is to be begged, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would then beg from Allah and when he recited the verses dealing with protection from the Lord, then he sought his protection. So as we read through the meaning of the Quran, you know, interact with this meaning

00:01:57--> 00:02:53

keep asking Allah subhanaw taala accordingly, Jews number 25 Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, la EULA Darrelle Massara woman the hood you mean some alati men accompany her woman? Woman on sir. Wanna tell her elaborating me way? Oh, my unity him aina Shaka, he corlew the NACA mean, nermeen. Shahid, to Him alone is attribute it knowledge of the hour, and no fruits emerge from their coverings, nor does a female conceive or give birth, except with his knowledge. And the day he will call to them, where are my partners, they will say, we announce to you that there is no longer among us any witness to that, and last from them will be those they were invoking before. And they will be

00:02:53--> 00:03:45

certain that they have no place of escape. Here, Allah subhanaw taala has vast knowledge is being mentioned. And particularly those matters have been mentioned, which are known exclusively to Allah. And the first of those matters is the knowledge of the hour, which no prophet or Angel knows about. And no matter what we do, we can never ever figure out or estimate or guess, or be certain about the exact time of the hour. This is knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala has kept with himself. What we know is that the hour is certainly coming, it is near. And instead of obsessing over when it is going to be, we really need to obsess over preparing for it. That is what we should be concerned

00:03:45--> 00:04:28

about, instead of dwelling over the signs of the Day of Judgment, because for some people, everything strange that happens in the world, everything unusual that happens in the world is a sign of the hour. Yes, it is a sign of the hour, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the fact that he came is a sign of the closeness of the hour. But that is not the only thing that we should dwell over. What we need to really be concerned about is to prepare for the hour. Likewise, the fruit that emerged from their coverings, he This is also knowledge that only Allah subhanaw taala knows as to when this is going to happen. And we see that regardless of where a fruit is, any no fruit, no

00:04:28--> 00:05:00

flower sprouts, no bud emerges. No, no bud turns into a fruit except that Allah subhanaw taala knows about it, meaning he knows when the fruit will become ripe. And this is something that we see in our kitchen also, you know, we bring fruit and we know that it is not ripe yet we keep it outside or we keep it in the refrigerator thinking that within a few days it will be ripe, but then by the time we cut it, so panela it's overripe. So these are matters that we don't know and no female gets pregnant.

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

Whether human or animal, except that Allah subhanaw taala knows about it. And at times it takes several weeks before a woman even realizes she's pregnant. And when exactly a child is going to be born, yes, salam, can he no one has that knowledge except Allah subhanaw taala. So we see in these verses that Allah subhanaw taala knows what people can never know. Or Allah subhanaw taala knows what people don't know yet, meaning he knows, even before we know why, because Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge is common. It is perfect, it is charming, it is inclusive of all it is not limited to the past, or the present, meaning time is irrelevant when it comes to the knowledge of Allah

00:05:47--> 00:06:34

subhanaw taala. And it is ever relevant when it comes to our knowledge. We know one thing one day and forget about it, the next day we study so well. But when the exam appears before us, it is as if we never read those words before. So Alyssa Palatine is the only one who is perfect in his knowledge. And no one besides Allah is like that. So how could they be God? How could they be worshipped, so those who worship others besides Allah, such people will be humiliated on the Day of Judgment, that where are the beings that you used to adore that you used to worship? So the fact is that there is no one who shares in Allah subhanaw taala his knowledge, no one knows as completely

00:06:34--> 00:07:26

and perfectly as Allah subhanaw taala does, and this is why no one shares in his Ulu here, meaning he alone is worthy of worship, because He alone is God lyase Emeril insano mendorong in hide what in massage Shang fayer also can old man is not weary of supplication for good things. But if evil touches him, he is hopeless and despairing. And he This is so true. We never stop wishing for more. We never stop wishing for good things. We always want more, and you know, nicer things. Even if it's food, you know, we want to try a new, you know, different foods, better foods. When it comes to our health, we want better health when it comes to opportunities in life, we want more and better

00:07:26--> 00:08:13

opportunities, better privileges. This is part of human nature. And we see that even if our condition has improved significantly in the past years, our desires and wishes and goals have only increased. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say that if the son of Adam, were given a valley full of gold, he would love to have a second one. So Panama, any This is the reality of human beings that our greed is endless. The problem though, is in giving up hope, because that is what is being mentioned over here that if evil touches him, he is hopeless. And despairing. They say that it's always easier to go up the ladder, but very hard to go down. Meaning a lot of people find it

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

easy to, you know, adjust to a better way of living. But when it comes to scaling down, then that is something that many people find hard. It demotion is very hard. If players don't get drafted for a season or two, even though they're swimming in money, any they they go through so much depression, and they're so upset, they have to go through therapy and whatnot. And this struggle, of course, it's understandable because now you have to adjust to a new and a very uncomfortable reality. But a person must have hope, and patience. This is what can help a person thrive through difficulties in life. And if we let him taste Mercy from Us, after an adversity, which has touched Him, He will

00:09:00--> 00:09:45

surely say, this is due to me, meaning I deserve this. I earned it. I worked really hard. And finally, I have the result of my effort. And he says, I do not think that our will occur, meaning he got so busy in enjoying his life that he forgets about the afterlife. And even if I should be returned to my Lord, indeed, for me, there will be with him the best. Meaning if I have good things now, I'll have good things later as well. If God because the concept here is that I have good things right now because God loves me. He's happy with me. He likes what I'm doing. So you know what, even after I die, God will be happy with me, and he will give me good things. But remember, having good

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

things in life is not a sign of Allah soprano, todos pleasure with you. But we will surely inform those who disbelieved about what they did, and we will surely make them taste a massive punishment. So in these verses, to very

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

reprehensible human traits are mentioned and what are they that first of all in hardship, man despairs, he becomes sad like someone who has despaired, is said, and secondly, when he received some blessing, he forgets that Allah subhanaw taala is the giver, he believes that he deserves it. So it has pride, he thinks that he is right. And he keeps on going and going on in in the wrongs that he is already committing. And this affects a person's belief and preparation for the hereafter. You see, despair, is also a result of pride is actually another face of pride. Because a person, you know, when they believe that I deserve my blessings, of course, this is pride. But what is despair?

00:10:48--> 00:11:33

despair is that how come I didn't get this meaning I deserve this, and I should have this and if I don't have this, this is very unfair. So I am going to quit, I'm going to quit on life, I'm going to quit on God. There is no point in living, this is a complete disaster, etc, etc. And one form of despair is to give up praying to give up calling upon Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the door of the servant is granted, as long as he does not supplicate for sin, or for severing the ties of kinship, or he does not become impatient. So the Prophet sallallahu, Arneson was asked that, what does it mean by becoming impatient? And he said, that a

00:11:33--> 00:12:24

person says that, oh, today, I made the law, I made the law, but I did not find it being responded, meaning my da was not answered. And so he becomes frustrated and abandons making da, this is also a form of despair. And remember, despair is a major sin, just like pride is because it's coming. It's the it's another face of pride. We learn in a Hadith, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do not even ask about three people, meaning, don't even ask me about what kind of a terrible punishment they will be given. Who which three people Firstly, the man who tries to snatch away from Allah, his cloak of greatness, and his, his cloak of his his out of honor, any the person who tries

00:12:24--> 00:13:11

to compete with Allah in greatness and an honor. Secondly, a man who has doubt in the command of Allah, things like I wonder if God is even there? Or why would God do such a thing, make such a thing or decide such a thing? And thirdly, the man who despairs from the mercy of Allah, Connaughton, Allah Mattila. Ne this is this is something very serious, this is very, very offensive, that Allah subhanaw taala has created you He has given you so much and if he has tested you with the hardship, why are you giving up so quickly? And when we bestow favor upon men, he turns away any This is what many people do, they turn away from remembering Allah from even acknowledging that what

00:13:11--> 00:13:56

they have is from Allah, and he distances himself, meaning he goes even further away from Allah, he forgets about him, as if now it is to beneath him to worship Allah to obey Allah. But when evil touches him, then he is full of extensive supplication, meaning, in good times, he completely forgets about Allah. And in difficulty he makes long long Dawn's say, Have you considered if the Quran is from Allah, and who disbelieved in it, who would be more astray than one who is in extreme dissension? Now remember that it is it is perfectly fine that in hardship a person begs Allah subhanaw taala even more, that is something that we should do. But what is being condemned over here

00:13:56--> 00:14:39

is that in good times a person completely forgets about Allah, and he distances himself from Allah soprano, tada, this is not healthy. And so if hardship is a means of drawing this close to Allah when he left his hand, but then this means that once Allah spawn tada removes that trouble from us, then we should not forget about him, we should still remember him and thank him, say have you considered if the Quran is from Allah, and you disbelieved in it? Who would be more history than one who is an extreme dissension meaning the Quran is guidance, and if a person leaves it, then such a person will be far away from guidance, they cannot be guided then send him a a Tina, we will show

00:14:39--> 00:15:00

them our signs were in the horizons and within themselves, until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth, the truth is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord, that he is over all things a witness, meaning even if people don't see and realize all the evidence is in the

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

selves or in the world around them. Still is it not sufficient that Allah subhanaw taala has said about this book that it is lovely Buffy that there is no doubt in it. We don't need science to prove the truthfulness of the Quran to us. We don't need life experiences to teach us that the Quran is true. Allah subhanaw taala His Word is sufficient. So we see over here that Allah subhanaw taala shows people through different signs, which are within themselves, and also around them. What does he show them, and that will help that it is the truth that the Quran is true. And also the fact that he is true. Meaning through one's own life experiences through the ups and downs in life, through

00:15:45--> 00:16:36

experiencing loss of control, through failure through illness through weakness through agonies. Allah subhanaw taala shows us the truth, again and again. So that we accept it. We accept that Allah is true, that his promise is true, that he is just that he is the greatest that he is the owner that he has absolute power, that we are truly his slaves, we realize that we are weak, that we are completely dependent on Allah subhanaw taala. So we must accept that truth. And we must show that acceptance by submitting to him by following his commands, not by resisting him and by drawing away from him. Allah Inna houfy Media Tim Melaka era be him unquestionably they are in doubt about the

00:16:36--> 00:17:24

meeting with their Lord. unquestionably he is of all things encompassing. The fact is that there are many people who believe and they are certain that they will meet Allah, yet they don't prepare for that meeting accordingly. And remember that knowledge of this fact alone is not enough. Aroma bin Abdulaziz once he ascended the pulpit, and he praised and Glorified Allah, and then he said, Oh, people, I didn't gather you here to give you some new instruction, but I reflected over the matter that you are going to return to Allah. And I have realized that the one who believes in this return is foolish, and the one who denies it is going to be ruined. And then he descended the member. Now,

00:17:24--> 00:17:58

what did he mean by saying that the person who believes in returning to Allah is foolish, meaning that even though he knows and believes in this meeting, he isn't really preparing for it as he should. He is still wasting his time in heedlessness in desires and in persistence in sin. And what is this other than foolishness? So we all need to think about ourselves? that yes, I believe I know that I'm going to return to my Lord, I'm going to meet him. But how am I preparing for that meeting?

00:17:59--> 00:18:51

Sula to shuara this Millennium Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem hammy Am I in scene cough? Thus has he revealed to you Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to those before you, who has you revealed? Who is the one who has revealed, Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Wise, To Him belongs, whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is in the earth, and He is the Most High, the most great, the heavens almost break from above them. Why? Out of fear of their Lord, or because of what the idolaters say, and the angels exalt Allah with praise of their Lord and ask forgiveness for those on earth? unquestionably, it is Allah who is the Forgiving the merciful Subhana Allah again, the angels

00:18:51--> 00:19:03

are mentioned that they seek forgiveness for those on Earth. Why? Because those on Earth are constantly inviting Allah subhanaw taala His wrath upon themselves a little low.

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

How by what they say and what they do.

00:19:08--> 00:19:53

Remember that if Allah subhanaw taala were to punish people for what they do if I allow her to punish us for what we do, not a single creature would remain alive on Earth. So the angels who carry the throne of Allah, they are afraid they keep glorifying and praising Allah and they keep seeking forgiveness for those on Earth. We learned that four of those angels they say some Hanukkah would be handy Carla hen myka burger in Mecca. Glory be to You and all praise be to You for Your forbearance. After your knowledge and the other angels This is so power Naka will be hungry Carla Africa Barbara Padilla tikka, All Glory be to You and praise be to you over the fact that you pardon, even though

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

you are fully able to execute revenge and give punishment and those who take us allies other than him.

00:20:00--> 00:20:49

Allah is yet Guardian over them, and you are not over them a manager. And thus we have revealed to you and Arabic Quran that you may warn the mother of cities, meaning the people of Makkah, and those around it and warn of the day of assembly, about which there is no doubt, a party will be in Paradise and a party in the Blaze, one group in Paradise and another group in hell. And if Allah willed, He could have made them off one religion, but he admits whom He wills into his mercy and the wrongdoers have not any protector or helper, or have they taken protectors or allies besides him, but Allah, He is the protector for Allah who who will when he and he gives life to the dead, and he

00:20:49--> 00:21:40

is over all things competent, one of the left to fee him and Shay in for hokhmah, who in a law and in anything over which you disagree. its ruling is to be referred to Allah say, a valley como la hora be that is Allah, my Lord, are they you talk to upon him, I have relied what he need. And to him I turn back, we see that in this world. there is disagreement over every little thing upon the law, whether it is a religious matter or worldly matter, within a family even any there's differences, even within the same methodology within the same fields, you know, people differ, whether it is a you know, business models or health issues or medicine, anything, people have

00:21:40--> 00:22:24

different opinions. Why? Because people think differently, people have different levels of knowledge, different life experiences, and they come from different backgrounds and the think accordingly. So when there are differences, how should they be resolved? For Hoku, who in a law, its judgment rests with a law, meaning First of all, see what Allah subhanaw taala says regarding that, meaning check the Quran checked a lot that Allah soprano Tara has revealed. And secondly, this means that for hoopoe in Allah, its decision will come from Allah, meaning the solution to the differences that you have will come from over. So make dua to Allah, ask Allah to give you clarity. And then we

00:22:24--> 00:23:07

see that there are matters which can never fully be resolved in this world. So again, for Hoku Illa, Allah who will judge regarding them on the Day of Judgment. So whatever differences we may have, they know sometimes these differences create a lot of, you know, tension in one's life, a lot of difficulty, you know, it's trains relationships. So what is necessary that for Hoku Illa, ask Allah turn to Allah, He is Creator of the heavens and the earth, He has made for you from yourselves mates, and among the cattle also mates. Why? Because he multiplies you thereby, there is nothing like unto him, laser cometh v Shea, and he is the hearing the seeing well who is semi or the bus

00:23:07--> 00:23:49

lead? So remember, Allah subhanaw taala has no equivalent, no one who is like him, he has no partner, he is one he is unique. That means that we should not compare him to the creation. We should not think of him as we think about the creation. And we should not build an image about God that resemble the creation because he lies above that he is beyond our perception laser committed he Shay well, who was 70 robustly and at the same time, do not deny the attributes of Allah. Allah has mentioned himself, the fact that he is hearing the fact that he is seeing and other attributes lahoma Polly do similar work you will have to Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth. He

00:23:49--> 00:24:36

extends provision for whom He wills and restricts it. Indeed he is of all things knowing. So we see that Allah soprano tada is the owner of all treasures, and the person who believes in this with conviction, then such a person has no hesitation in asking a law that he or Allah, you have what I need, and you give you extend provision, and I need this and I beg you to give this to me. So the treasures that people possess, remember that Allah subhanaw taala is also the owner of those of those treasures. So there is nothing except that Allah subhanaw taala owns it, nothing that any servant has, except that Allah subhanaw taala has given it to them. So in a hadith we learned that

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

Allah, Allah says, All my servants, all of you are astray, except those whom I have guided. So seek guidance from me and I shall guide you, all my servants, all of you are hungry, except those whom I have fed. So seek food for me and I shall feed you, all my servants all of you are naked, except those whom I have clothed. So seek clothing from me and I shall clothe you

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

servants if the first of you and the last of you and the humans of you and the interview, were all to stand together in one place and ask of me, and I were to give everyone what he requested, then that would not decrease what I possess, except what is decreased of the ocean, when a needle is dipped into it, Allahu Akbar, when you dip a needle in the ocean, how much water is taken out by the needle? Hardly anything. So when you ask Allah subhanaw taala, to realize that Allah has a lot to give. So, whether it is a material thing that you need or a spiritual, remember Allah is the owner of it, and he is the one who gives it. So ask Him and He will provide it in his ways, through the

00:25:44--> 00:25:53

ASVAB that he has created, shutout Allah calm, he has ordained for you of religion, what he enjoined upon knew, and that which he has,

00:25:54--> 00:26:38

he has ordained for you of religion, what he enjoined upon knew, and that which We have revealed to you, or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what we enjoined upon Ibrahim and Moosa, under Isa. And what is that to establish the religion and not be divided there in difficult for those who associate others with Allah is that to which you invite them, a lot, chooses for himself whom He wills, and guides to himself, whoever turns back to him. So we see that the religion that has been given to the last messenger Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, is the same as the religion that was given to the first messenger know how it is set up, and all of the prophets and messengers in between, and

00:26:38--> 00:27:20

what is that religion and a team would do one at a time for Goofy, meaning worship only Allah and do not become divided. And this is in complete contrast to what the idolaters do, they worship multiple different gods and hence they have become divided. One worships a human, another worships an idol, another, an animal, so on and so forth, and the wish the keen find to hate very upsetting. So it is said here kabuna or then we should Akina Mata the oom LA. Why? Because they think that their gods are being insulted. So remember, that all prophets of Allah brought the same teachings, meaning the main principles of religion have always been the same, because all the prophets came for one

00:27:20--> 00:28:03

purpose, and that was to call people to the worship of Allah. So the core beliefs of religion have always been consistent, and what are they to worship only Allah, to believe in the prophets to believe in the scripture to believe in the hereafter? But of course, the ways of worship, the commands the law, that has always varied. Why? Because things changed drastically. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that prophets are brothers in faith, having different mothers, their religion is one, meaning the religion is one. And yes, the laws, the details of the law, they were different. Why? Because Because things changed over time. And this shows us that Islam is the

00:28:03--> 00:28:44

natural religion. Why is it that the beliefs have always been the same? Because facts are facts. They don't need to be revised. They don't need to be changed. Why not the phone Roku, and they did not become divided, meaning the followers of the prophets only became divided until after knowledge had come to them. Why, out of jealous animosity between themselves, like people who denied he started his salon, and then people who denied Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What was the reason? Was it ignorance? No, it was jealous animosity. And if not for a word that proceeded from your Lord until a specified time, it would have been concluded between them, meaning they would have

00:28:44--> 00:29:28

been punished severely, they would have been removed from the surface of the earth. But that is not the way of a law. And indeed, those who are granted inheritance of the scripture after them concerning it are in disquieting doubt. So here the reason for religious divisions is mentioned that it is the greed for greatness for being right and more popular and dominant, that has led many people to stick to their errors than to accept the truth, funny, danika feather Ooh, so to that invite meaning to the religion of Allah to the worship of Allah alone. This is what you should be inviting people to. What's the theme come out, omit and remain on the right course, as you are

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

commanded, and do not follow their inclinations. But say, I have believed in what Allah has revealed of the Quran, and I have been commanded to do justice among you. Allah is our Lord and your Lord, for us are our deeds and for you, your deeds, there is no need for argument between us and you, alone will bring us together and to him is the final destination. So we see here that the Prophet sallallaahu organism has been given a beautiful instruction that you believe yourself, and then invite people to believe

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

As well believe in who believe in the oneness of Allah. And then be firm, be steadfast remain on the right course. Meaning be firm in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Only then don't get deviated after that. Amen as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Messenger of Allah tells me something of a snag, which I do not need to ask about from anyone after you. He said, cool mm to BelAir. So Mr. Kim, that say, I believe in Allah, and then be firm. He said, so what is it that I should be that that I should be careful about? Meaning what is it that I should avoid? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pointed towards his tongue, meaning be firm, in Islam, in

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

worshiping Allah, and also be careful about your tongue meaning how you use your tongue, the kind of words that you say, in another Hadees weiteren is stuck in while tossing Hello, cook, that be firm, and your character should be beautiful, your your whole look, your manners should be excellent. Because the most important thing after believing is to remain steadfast to maintain that faith, to uphold that faith, and to not let go of it because of difficulties or because of the criticism of people or, you know, not get distracted, so that a person's intention becomes someone other than Allah. No, this is to karma is very important. And then, as you were trying your best to be firm,

00:31:31--> 00:32:09

you must also be considerate of people. being considered of people doesn't mean that you start compromising on your faith. No, being considerate means that you are good to them in the way that you speak to them in the way that you deal with them. Our problem is that we start doing something good, you know, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. But then we also become very harsh with people. And we think that that harshness means that we are now being firm in religion, no, harshness is not something because of which people are blessed. Allah subhanaw taala blesses people because of their gentleness because of their good character. So yes, worship Allah. You know, for example,

00:32:09--> 00:32:52

these days you start reciting the Quran, but then as you start reciting your children coming to interrupt, so then Watch your tongue, watch your manners be firm, meaning keep reciting, don't leave your recitation, but then also watch your manners. When Medina you have Juna phila, human body, Mr. De Bella who, and those who argue concerning Allah, meaning his oneness, and his religion, after he has been responded to their argument is invalid with their Lord, and upon them is his wrath, and for them is a severe punishment, meaning when the truth is established, and people are still arguing about its validity, then they're just wasting their time. So don't lend them an ear. And remember,

00:32:52--> 00:33:34

such people will never succeed. It is Allah who has sent down the book in truth, and also the balance, and what will make you perceive, perhaps the hour is near, notice how three things are mentioned in this ayah the revelation of the Quran, and the fact that there is truth and justice, and then the fact that the hour is near, what's the connection here that follow the book, now that it has come. And when you follow the book, you will be able to do what is right, and you will be fair. And be careful about that because the hour is coming, and your deeds will be weighed and accounted for. So now you know, and your actions must change accordingly. Those who do not believe

00:33:34--> 00:34:22

in it, are impatient for it because they don't understand how serious the Day of Judgment is. So they keep asking when is it going to be? When is it going to be? But those who believe are fearful of it, and know that it is the truth. unquestionably, those who dispute concerning the hour are in extreme error. So we see here that the reason why a person would fear the Hereafter is because they actually believe in it. Because remember, it also believe in the hereafter. Why do they believe in the hereafter? Because in this world, full compensation and absolute justice is impossible. It's not possible. And as humans in EU we yearn for justice, when we see so much unfairness around us that

00:34:22--> 00:34:51

how is it fair, that a person who is in his own home is assaulted and killed? A person who has jogging in his own neighborhood is assaulted and killed any without any criminal record? For no crime? A person is killed with so much force that is used against them. Doesn't your conscience tell you that this is not fair, that there must be a sequel that there has to be, you know, a

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

justice, that must be a compensation that must be given? So we see that human economy

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

demands that there must be justice. And this is why the home of the Hereafter is there. The world is just one side of the equation. And this is why if we only believe in this world and nothing after this, no afterlife, we can never ever be at peace. So those who believe in the Hereafter, they prepare for it. And they're fearful about it. And this is a sign of truly believing in the hereafter. You see, shaitan also believes that the day of judgment is coming, but he doesn't have a man. He doesn't fear the coming of the our Eman in the hereafter means that a person accepts, accepts the fact he doesn't just know about it, but they surrender and they do what their faith

00:35:46--> 00:36:31

necessitates. So a person who lives with such fear than Allah subhanaw taala will grant them security on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a lot the exalted says, By my honor, I will not gather on my servant to securities and to fears. Meaning if you live insecurity in the world from me, then I will put him in fear on the day that I gather my servants. And if you live in fear of me in the world, then I will grant him security on the day that I gather my servants. And if you think about it, the concept of fearing the meeting with Allah, fearing the meeting, living with this fear, this concept is only in Islam. In other religions where there is

00:36:31--> 00:37:13

belief in the afterlife, you know, people think death means Heaven, that now you become an angel or now you're just in paradise. And even with the belief in the hereafter they live with a man with security in the world without any fear of God, which is why they go on doing whatever they please, but they're real believers, meaning those who truly believe in the Hereafter, they combine hope with fear. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would pray, Allahu maletto zini young multi ama, that will Allah do not humiliate me on the Day of Judgment, and we should also make the Allahumma inni are all becoming liquid dunia will leave the young will piano that Oh Allah, I seek

00:37:13--> 00:38:01

your protection from the constriction of worldly life and the constriction of the Day of Judgment, meaning save me on that day. A love will not leave from beer a buddy, Allah is subtle, and kind with his servants, he gives provision to whom He wills and he is the powerful the Exalted in Might. Allah subhanaw taala is a leaf and a leaf is the one who is ever kind ever kind with his servants. But what do we think kindness is we think kindness is you know, cotton candy and marshmallows endless laughter and you know, fulfillment of every wish and desire. You see if you if you saw a child being treated this way in the name of kindness, you would be worried for that child that may God protect

00:38:01--> 00:38:45

the child's health for you know, you will you'll be worried for the for the child's teeth, that if they're getting sugar on sugar on sugar, any in the name of love and kindness, then what's going to become of this child you're going to worry for their life that how will they survive? So kindness doesn't mean that to fulfill every wish, of those whom you are showing kindness to know what ilaha methylone Allah Allah subhanaw taala is lovely from beriberi he's ever kind with his servants. What does that mean? This means that when his servants seek his help, and when his servants rely upon him, after having despaired from the creation, and his servants turn toward him, then Allah subhanaw

00:38:45--> 00:39:34

taala accept, then Allah subhanaw taala accepts his servants, Allah subhanaw taala turns towards them, Allah subhanaw taala is kind. So he accepts their little effort, and he gives them heavy rewards for the little that they do. A loss of avatar that's kind to his servants. So he mends the brokenhearted and he creates ease for them. He is kind to his servants. So he doesn't give them immediate punishment when they disobey, nor does he disappoint those who place their hope in Him. He is kind so he conceals their faults. He is kind so he forgives those who repent. He is kind so He is merciful to even those who don't show mercy to themselves soprano Allah. Remember, Allah is more

00:39:34--> 00:39:59

kind to you than you are to yourself. And it is mentioned here that yellow zucco Manisha he provides whom He wills. So what does this mean that we trust him in the matter of provision that we ask him with a lot of hope, and we should believe that Allah subhanaw taala provides, he is the giver. And the fact is that Allah has given you more than what you ever

00:40:00--> 00:40:50

Ask him for and he gives you from where you do not even expect and he is alcovy EULA Aziz, he is not kind out of weakness, no, he is ever strong, he is fully able to execute his wrath on us if he wants, but instead of punishing us immediately he is kind to us, he chooses to be kind. So, he keeps giving us more and more chances. And he has other Aziz, he is ever mighty, he gives more to some less to some, not because of some limitation, not because of stinginess or fear, no, he is capable of giving more than what you can ever imagine. He's not stingy. But the but the decisions of a law regarding provision. They're based on his on his wisdom. Montana Ud duhallow said, Men Cana UD to

00:40:50--> 00:41:38

wholesale l Hera, nesina, woofie. Healthy, whoever desires the harvest of the Hereafter, we increase for him in his harvest, meaning we multiply his rewards many times over. And whoever desires the harvest of this world Subhanallah we give him there off, but there is not for him in the hereafter any share, Allahu Akbar. You see, when you when you sow a seed, what do you expect that a plant will grow? Right? Some people, what they want is that when they do something, they want the result, the reward immediately. Now in this world, I'm making the law I want an answer today, I'm asking Allah to heal me, I want to be healed today. I want money, I want ease. I want that today. And then there

00:41:38--> 00:42:21

are other people who when they worship Allah, when they asked him for something, then they expect the reward from Allah subhanaw taala, in the hereafter. That is what matters. It's not the things of the world, which are the goal. It's the Diwan of Allah, the approval of a lion, the Hereafter, that is their ultimate goal. So they trust the plan of Allah subhanaw taala. They trust his decision, and they keep on worshiping Allah, they keep on asking him, they keep on praying to Him. So remember, Allah subhanaw taala gives in this world, and he also gives in the hereafter. In this world, you only get what is fixed for you, what is recorded for you, not more, and not less, you don't have

00:42:21--> 00:43:05

control over that what you do have control over is what you want in the hereafter. So the question is, what is it that you are focused on? So now how is it that we can make sure that we are seeking the harvest the result of the Hereafter, that first of all, we do things now, that will benefit us there? meaning all of our focus and energy should not just be on getting results here, that for example, I am cleaning my house now. So that I can be you know, I can have a relaxed evening. Okay, that's fine. But all of your energy should not just go into your house, spare some time, make some time for what will benefit you in the hereafter.

00:43:06--> 00:43:53

And then this also means that you spend your money in causes in things that will benefit you in the hereafter. Think about it, aren't there funds that you set aside for your children's future, which they can only access after a certain age or for yourself that you can only access after you retire? So set aside some funds for your asset or also where one will be multiplied 700 times over? How much does the government you know, give when you invest in your in your Children's Fund. Sometimes, you know, they will match it. Sometimes they will, you know, give a certain benefit, or sometimes the government will add to your retirement fund. But no one offers you 700% Allah subhanaw taala offers

00:43:53--> 00:44:36

you that So spend of your money in the hereafter also meeting spending causes that will benefit you in the hereafter. And especially in the month of Ramadan. And in these days and nights when we're seeking Laila to cuddle. Because imagine if you spend $1 imagine that will be like you spent for 1000 years how much the reward has been multiplied. So make it a point that every single day and every single night of these remaining days and nights of Ramadan, you give something, even if it's just $5 $10, whatever it is that you can afford, but give something and don't just give, you know to your friends and family. Indeed, that is excellent, of course. But especially spend in the way of

00:44:36--> 00:45:00

Allah because that is the best form of charity to spend in the way of Allah that brings the greatest results in the hereafter. So whoever desires the harvest of the hereafter Allah soprano tada will increase that for them, which means that when we work, we should have the law in mind. That should be our intention and our manner should also be according

00:45:00--> 00:45:38

Li the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us that whoever does the work of the hereafter for worldly gain, will have no share in the hereafter. So our Nia should be correct, or have they? Or have they other deities who have ordained for them a religion to which Allah has not consented, meaning what is it that they're following a law other than which Allah has revealed, but if not for the decisive word, it would have been concluded between them. And indeed, the wrongdoers will have a painful punishment, you will see the wrongdoers fearful of what they have earned, and it will certainly befall them. And those who have believed and then righteous deeds will be in lush regions

00:45:38--> 00:46:11

of the gardens and paradise, having whatever they will in the presence of their Lord. That is what is the great bounty. It is that of which Allah gives good tidings to his servants who believe and do righteous deeds, say Oh, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I do not ask you for this message, any payment, but only goodwill through kinship, and whoever commits a good deed, we will increase for him good there in Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Appreciative. The prophets of Allah who were to send them remember, he was related to

00:46:13--> 00:46:57

all of the, you know, different people within Makkah, right in one way or another. And regarding the ties of kinship, any paying regard to the ties of kinship, this was something very, very important in our culture, this was a very important value. So here it is said that at least have regard for me because of the blood that we share. And even our best explained that this means Oh kodesh you should keep good relation with me. Any all I expect from you is that after all your my relatives, so leave my opposition, leave my opposition meeting, even if you don't want to believe in me find don't, but at least have regard for the fact that I am related to you. Or do they say he has invented about a

00:46:57--> 00:47:42

lot a lie. But if Allah willed he could seal over your heart, and Allah eliminates falsehood and establishes the truth by his words. Indeed he is knowing of that within the chests. Well who are ledee Yakubu, Tabata and everybody and it is he who accepts repentance from his servants. Why are foreigners say he and he pardons misdeeds? Why are lemuel McAfee alone and he knows what you do? Allah accept repentance from his servants. This is a fact that Allah soprano data is telling us about why does he accept repentance? Because people are his very bad, they're his slaves. So he is kind to his slaves, he knows their weaknesses, their deficiencies, and he owns them. So why would he

00:47:42--> 00:48:26

reject them when they admit their mistakes and they come to him with humility. We are after all his very bad. And this is his promise will love We are a Docomo filata men who Allah promises you forgiveness from himself. And remember Allah is very, very pleased with the repentance of his slaves. So we must first believe that we are not perfect that we do wrong, we make mistakes. And then we must believe that Allah, Allah forgives those who turned to him who know that there is no one to forgive sins, except he because He alone is God. As we learned in a Hardee's that last point, Allah says that whoever knows that I am able to forgive since then I will forgive him. And I will

00:48:26--> 00:49:09

not mind as long as he does not associate anything with me. And even when a person keeps repeating sin, because they're human, and repeating sin in the sense that, you know, you save yourself from one sin, but then you slip here, and then again, you make Toba from that, and then you slip there, and then you fix one thing, and then you slip there any we're humans, we keep falling in one way or another. So it is important that we believe that Allah subhanaw taala keeps forgiving. We are in a hadith that a man came upon a skull, meaning he saw a human skull. And he said, Oh, Lord, You are you and I am I you keep forgiving and I keep sinning. And he fell in prostration. So it was said,

00:49:09--> 00:49:52

raise your head for you keep sending and I keep forgiving, and that man was forgiven. So this is what we should also believe that Allah subhanaw taala forgives sins, we should admit our mistakes were thought of to be done be that will Allah I admit my sins, I confess them. I know I am wrong. I know I have all of these mistakes. I have many shortcomings, but I also know that you forgive sins. So y'all Allah, forgive me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Indeed, Allah accepts the repentance of a slave as long as his soul does not reach his throat. So keep seeking forgiveness, and he answers the supplication of those who have believed and unrighteous deeds and increases for

00:49:52--> 00:50:00

them from his bounty. So one of the ways of having our drawers accepted is that we also do righteous deeds. Any if you ever want

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

But you know, I've been making the I've been making the call my daughter is not being answered, maybe we need to reflect over our actions, that are we also supporting our daughters with good deeds because good deeds are a means of acceptance of the grace. And Allah increases for them from his bounty, meaning Allah gives people more than what they ever asked for, but the disbelievers will have a severe punishment. And if you think about it, did we pray for everything we have? Know, Allah subhanaw taala has given us way more than we ever asked for. But in this world, remember, Allah subhanaw taala gives us within a certain limit. He doesn't give us everything that we wish for. Why?

00:50:41--> 00:51:22

Because and if Allah had extended excessive leaf provision for his servants, they would have committed tyranny throughout the earth. But he sends it down in an amount which he wills, indeed, he is of his servants Acquainted and Seeing, meaning Allah subhanaw taala knows that if he gave us everything we wanted, then what would we do liberal open up, we would commit tyranny on Earth, there will be much corruption and oppression. And we see this, that people who do have a lot of wealth than what happens to them, they become oppressive, they become rebellious, they become more destructive. So it is for our own good that Allah subhanaw taala gives us within a certain limit.

00:51:22--> 00:52:04

And the any Think about it, this is human nature, that if we don't have limits, if we don't have boundaries, we really become uncontrollable. If you think about your own children, how is it that you're set, that you're always setting boundaries for them, even when it comes to the screen time? You know, 15 minutes, 20 minutes, one episode, you know, one, once only you can play any we set all of these boundaries. Why? Because we know that these boundaries are healthy for them. So just like that, Allah subhanaw taala has restricted, you know, our our freedoms and our blessings, because he knows us. He knows that if there were no restrictions, then we would end up harming ourselves. And

00:52:04--> 00:52:44

it is he who sends down the rain, after they had despaired and spreads His mercy, and he is the protector of the Praiseworthy, meaning he doesn't leave people in absolute and perpetual misery. He brings them relief, sometimes brief periods of it. But there is certainly relief because allies actually he is an Hamid, so call upon your friend, your protector, and he's praiseworthy, so praise Him and thank him for the gifts that he showers on you. And we see rain as mentioned here, the prophets of Allah who already said and loved rain, we learned that at one occasion, rain fell, and he removed his cloth from his from his from his upper body, meaning he exposed his shoulders. And

00:52:44--> 00:53:27

the companions asked that Why did you do that? He said, because the rain has just come from Allah, the Exalted, and obvious signs of the creation of the heavens and earth, and what he has dispersed throughout them of creatures, and he for gathering them when he wills is competent, and whatever strikes you of disaster, it is for what your hands have earned, but he pardons much, or pardon us all. And you will not cause failure to Allah upon the earth. And you have not besides a lot any protector or helper, Allahu Akbar, and you've Ally's angry with you, then where will you go, and of His signs are the ships in the sea like mountains, if he will, he could still the wind and they

00:53:27--> 00:54:14

would remain motionless on its surface, indeed, and that are Signs for everyone patient and grateful. And we see that we see that when a person is traveling over water, any there are moments when you feel very afraid. And you also feel greatly relieved. So be patient in fear and be grateful, when relieved, fear invites one to be patient and relief in invites one to be grateful, or he could destroy them for what they earned. But he pardons much and that is so those are dispute concerning our signs may know that for them, there is no place of escape. So whatever thing you have been given, it is but for enjoyment of the worldly life, but what is with Allah is better and more

00:54:14--> 00:54:58

lasting. But who is this for? It is for those who have believed and upon their Lord, they rely, and those who avoid the major sins and immoralities and when they're angry, they forgive what is Islam Kabbalah isn't they avoid sins, sin, remember, is that which your heart is uncomfortable with, and you dislike that it would be disclosed to other people, meaning the action which you which when you do it, your heart tells you this is wrong, and you don't want people to find out about it, so they avoid major sins. And when a person is careful about the major sins they also avoid minor sins because they realize that even minor sins are enough to destroy a person because remember, too many

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

minor sins are consistent

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

Minor sins, that they become equal to a major sin.

00:55:04--> 00:55:50

And the inner conscience doesn't let a person be immoral to commit profanity to enjoy loot and dirty things. So, so they avoid for law which also immoralities and we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from immoralities we learned that Abdullah de la Horne who one of his Dora's we meeting of the art that he would make very frequently was a little burner asleep. Sabina wadena sebelah Salah, one of Jean Amina Luna Mati Eleanor was sort of final for heisha Malhotra minha baton webedi kanopy. smarty now what, Swati now what color will be now as well Gina with Leah Tina, what to berlina in Mecca and Tata wearable Rahim internatia Kadena linear Matic. Mata Nina be her car Elena,

00:55:50--> 00:56:38

Bihar, me Marlena amin, and part of this draw is that Oh Allah turn away from us all in moralities, those which are apparent and those which are hidden, meaning save us from immoral behavior, immoral actions. And then anger is mentioned that when they get angry, they forgive Allahu Akbar, which means that you will get angry. This is only normal, this is only natural, but just because you're angry, it doesn't mean that you express it, that you unleash it on people uncontrollably, no, you must control your anger, you must forgive those who have angered you, whether it is your child, or your spouse, your co worker, or and whatever reason that they have angered you for forgive them.

00:56:38--> 00:57:16

Why? Because as we learn here, the agenda good reward is promised to such people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said let the love wanna come. Don't be angry and you will have genda and we learned that a person asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that what is it that will distance me from the anger of Allah, He said left of the Don't get angry, meaning you control your anger and you'll pardon people and Allah soprano Tata will also pardon you remember that excessive anger. This is not only a spiritual disease, it's also an emotional problem. And it leads to many, many problems. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said not doubled

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

up, don't get angry. When people would ask him for advice he would say not doubled up. Why? Because a man said I reflected over this and I realize for even a lot of who yet tomorrow shovel could lose. Because anger gathers all evil, any it leads to a lot of evil because in anger, we save things we do things which we later on regret, will loneliness the job will be him. And those who have responded to their Lord did nice for them, that he Allah, this is your command, love bake, I surrender. This is my pleasure, I will obey you. And they established prayer and whose affair is determined by consultation among themselves what um, Rome short avena home and from what We have provided them

00:58:00--> 00:58:43

they spend this doesn't mean that they consult people regarding every big and small thing. And every single matter of there's no, I would have been denied recited this if he said that even our best said we shall we won't the burden of any. Consult people in some matters, which matters matters which are related to them. Meaning when you know that something that you're going to do is going to affect other people, then you better consult them. Don't just you know run your house as if you're a dictator, don't run your own, you know, your work or your department as if you're a dictator, no man, you must consult them, you must consult them because when you consult people that are has an

00:58:43--> 00:59:19

adversity said that people never seek advice, meaning seek consultation without being guided to the best possibility available to them. Meaning it leads you to a better decision. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also, he would consult the companions, we learned that when I know the masjid was built in Medina and people would come for Salah. At the beginning, there was no event. So a lot of times, you know, people would come early or they would come late and they would miss the Salah. So there was, you know, discussion about how is it that people should be called to prayer. So some said, let's do what the Christians do. Meaning let's use belts than other suggested No, let's

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

use a horn like Jews. So people suggested different things in our model della horn, who said, Why don't you send a man to announce the time for prayer? So the Prophet salallahu already sent him like that. And he told me that that will be gnarly, get up and give the call to prayer, meaning make the announcement to prayer. So this is how the time began. Imagine and those who when tyranny strikes them, they defend themselves meaning they don't just keep suffering that okay, you hit me on my right cheek now hit me on my left cheek also know they defend themselves. And the retribution for an evil act isn't even one is an evil one like it, but whoever pardons and makes reconciliation, his

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

reward is do you

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

from Allah. Indeed, he does not like wrongdoers, and whoever Avengers himself after having been wronged, those have not upon them any cause for blame. So remember, patience doesn't mean that you just put up with the oppression and you accept it. No patience means that you try to change your situation. And part of patience is also to forgive the oppressor to forgive them. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala has guaranteed reward for those who forgive in these verses, reward is guaranteed for who those who forgive, and we learn a lower zero agenda or for one year hibbeler awful, that Allah subhanaw taala is ever forgiving and he loves to forgive. So what should we do? We ask Allah to

01:00:47--> 01:01:19

forgive us. So we should also show forgiveness to people. When you forgive people. You're actually helping yourself. It might feel like you are accepting the oppression No, you're not accepting it wrong is wrong, it will never be called right? But when you forgive someone, you are freeing yourself and you are inviting the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Be merciful, you will receive mercy, forgive and Allah will forgive you. I shall do a lot more and has said that the prophets of Allah whoever it is that have never took revenge on his own behalf

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

unless something that Allah had forbidden was transgressed in which event, he took revenge for it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So this shows us that when it's a personal matter, yes, you forgive and you don't take revenge, and that is excellent. But when it's a public matter, or a religious matter, where other people are being affected or could get affected, then we see that the way the Prophet sallallaahu already said it was that he took disciplinary action. In Nima subito, Allah live in a lovely moon and as the causes only against the ones who wrong the people and tyrannized upon the earth without right, those will have a painful punishment. So those who commit

01:01:58--> 01:02:39

oppression, then such people are worthy of of, of being punished, that revenge be taken from them. And Allah subhanaw taala will also take revenge from such people we learn how these that Allah gives rest by to the oppressor, but when he lays his hand upon him, he does not let him go, a little law and people who are as loom emammal loom a leader who is oppressive, such a person will not even receive the intercession of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment, and whoever is patient and forgives, indeed, that is of the matters requiring determination, meaning this is not something that the ordinary people can do. And he will Allah sends a stray for him,

01:02:39--> 01:03:21

there is no protector beyond him. And you will see the wrongdoers when they see the punishment saying is there for return to the former World anyway? Meaning can we get just one more chance and you will see them being exposed to the fire humbled from humiliation, looking from behind a covert glenns meaning they'll be afraid to even look at the punishment, embarrassed to even look up. And those who had believed will say, indeed, the true losers are the ones who lost themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. unquestionably, the wrongdoers are in an enduring punishment. So real losers are those who put themselves and their families in loss. And this is, you know,

01:03:21--> 01:04:04

greater injustice that neither did the person do what is right themselves, nor did they allow or teach their family. Sometimes people stop their own family members from doing what is right. So many women soprano love their husbands don't allow them to wear hijab, their husbands don't allow them to study a Koran. their husbands don't allow them, you know, to do what is right, Allahu Akbar. And he wonders that you're putting yourself in loss, but now you're also forcing other people. This is greatest loss. Wilma, Canada hoomin Alia am soluna home a doula and there will not be for them any allies to aid them other than Allah And whoever Allah sends us trade for him, there is no way

01:04:04--> 01:04:50

respond to your Lord is the G boullier have become before a day comes from Allah, of which there is no repelling nor refuge Will you have that day nor for you, will there be any denial meaning that no one can change your situation or help you so do something today make use of your life make use of your time, because death is coming? The day of judgment is coming result is coming for in Arnaldo but if they turn away, then we have not sent to all profit over them as a guardian upon you is only the duty of notification. And indeed, when we let men taste Mercy from Us, he rejoices in it he gets so happy, so arrogant. But if evil afflicts him for what his hands and put forth, then indeed man is

01:04:50--> 01:04:59

ungrateful. He blames Allah and he begins to despair lilla he will cause somehow it will have to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He creates what he

01:05:00--> 01:05:45

wills he gives to whom He wills, female children, and he gives to whom He wills, males, or he makes them both males and females, and he renders whom He wills barren. Indeed, he is knowing and competent. And he this has completely Allah subhanaw taala his decision. Notice over here that girls, daughters are mentioned before sons, why? As if people's attention is being drawn to the blessing of having daughters, the daughters should be cherished, they should be looked after they should be cared for not buried alive or looked down upon or treated differently. But unfortunately, this is common till today that in religious, knowledgeable families, even girls are mistreated, that

01:05:45--> 01:06:21

you know, they're treated as if you know, you're going to leave us very soon anyway. So why should we bother investing in your education? Why should we bother spending money on you stuff in a law, we learned that I shall Dylan Miranda, she's she mentioned about how a woman came begging for food. And I shall do more on her only had a few dates with her. So she gave this woman three dates. So this woman, she gave one day to each to two of her daughters. And the third day she was going to eat herself, but her daughters began looking at her. So she divided her date into half and gave each daughter one piece, and the mother did not have anything herself. So Pamela, and I shall do a lot

01:06:21--> 01:06:40

more I mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu earlier sent him that, that this was amazing. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever it is tested that, and he that whoever is good to his daughters, then they will be sit down men and know that they will be a shield for him from the fire. Meaning when a person

01:06:41--> 01:07:27

that when a person, you know raises daughters spends on them, is good to know, raises them well, educates them, etc, then this will be a means of protection for him from the fire. And it is not for any human being, that Allah should speak to him except by revelation, or from behind a partition, or that he sends a messenger to reveal by his permission, what He wills Indeed, he is most high and wise. So this is a fact that in this life in this world, unless pronto does not speak to any human being directly. And if the last panel title spoke to the prophets, that was also that was always through why or from behind a screen musasa did not see Allah when the Prophet sallallahu or his hand

01:07:27--> 01:08:13

was taken on Mirage, he did not see Allah. No, he did not. And the fact is, that, in this world communication is only through revelation. But remember, on the day of judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will directly speak to us. in Hades we learned that no doubt, each one of you will stand before Allah. And there will be neither a curtain nor an interpreter between him and Allah had these we learned there will be none among you, but his Lord will speak to him. And there will be no interpreter between them, nor a screen to screen him. And this is a conversation that he asked we should look forward to, but we should be really afraid about that. What is my lord going to say to

01:08:13--> 01:08:22

me? What is he going to ask me about? How am I going to answer him? What am I going to say? How am I going to justify my laziness and my wrongdoing?

01:08:24--> 01:09:08

And thus, and thus we have revealed to you and inspiration of our command, you did not know what is the book or what is faith, the Prophet sallallahu already said was being told over here, you had no idea about what the Quran is what a man is, but we made it a light by which we guide whom we will have our servants, and indeed, oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you guide to a straight path, the path of Allah, to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, unquestionably, to Allah do all matters, evolve, all matters and up with him, they returned to him. So the final decision will be his. Here, the blessing of the Quran is mentioned that there was a

01:09:08--> 01:09:48

time when you did not know what a treasure This is, you did not even know this book existed, that this book was going to be given to you. You thought Yes, there are people who you know, and if we relate this to ourselves, you know, there are people we used to think that yes, there are people who, you know, memorize the Quran, who recite the Quran, or who read the translation, and 100 Allah, Allah has given us the opportunity, the ability to recite some of it, to memorize some of it, to learn some of it. This is truly a gift, it rahima inaud it guidance from Allah subhanaw taala in blessing that we need to cherish and we need to be grateful for and you see, the Quran is called

01:09:48--> 01:09:59

rule over here. And what is room soul spirit? Why is it called spirit or soul because it brings life to the heart. It keeps the heart blooming.

01:10:00--> 01:10:49

Just like spring does. You see, rule is a source of life for a body. And the Quran is a source of life for the heart, it turns ignorance into awareness. So when people learn the Quran, it is as if they have come to life, it is as if they have woken up it is as if they have become a new human being. Malik even Denard would say all people have the Quran. What has the Quran cultivated in your hearts? Meaning what has the Quran planted in your hearts? Because the Quran is the spring of the heart, just as rain is to the soil, meaning when when it is springtime, and rainfall rainfalls what happens to the soil? Does it mean barren and empty? No, something grows something blooms, there are

01:10:49--> 01:11:34

flowers, there is color there is beauty. So we need to think what has the Quran cultivated in my heart? How has the Quran revived my heart? What has blossomed and bloomed in my heart? Is there love for Allah? Is there love for his book? Are there any good deeds that I am doing now has the Quran made me better? You see, the spring season completely changes the landscape, the colors the variety of plants, and you can see it these days. Right there is growth everywhere. The ground is full The earth is full trees are full. So we need to see how has the Koran filled me and has it changed me for the better? Am I blooming? Am I blossoming with the Hold on.

01:11:36--> 01:12:18

I will say though that he said that he asked the Prophet sallallahu earlier said that he had also Allah advised me and he said you must remember Allah and recite the Quran for it as a source of mercy for you in the sky, and the means of your good mentioned in the earth. And this is why we should take nursia deep music melden for your hoekman Garden vehicle dog long dog at the end of which we say that antigen or the animal be or can be that Oh Allah make the whole on the springtime of my heart. Meaning that when we spend more time with the poorer our actions should change, our lives should become transformed sooner to zakharov Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. hammy him well keytab

01:12:18--> 01:13:04

in Moo bean by the clear book, indeed, we have made it an Arabic Koran that you might understand, meaning only Arabic has the capacity to convey the Quran. This is the language the medium that Allah soprano Tara chose, and indeed it is in the mother of the book with us exalted and full of wisdom, then, should we turn the message away? disregarding you, because you are transgressing people? No, we will tell you, even if you don't want to know. But that is said by Allah if the Quran was taken away, because the first people of this woman rejected it, they would have been destroyed. So it is Allah's mercy, that he continued to, to reveal the Quran on people, even though they rejected it

01:13:05--> 01:13:47

will come on salamina Bian fil a Willie, and how many a prophet we sent among the former peoples, but there would not come to them a prophet except that they used to ridicule him, and we destroyed greater than them in striking power. And the example of the former peoples has proceeded. And if you should ask them, who has created the heavens and the earth, they would surely say they were created by the Exalted in Might, the knowing, the one who has made for you the earth, a bed and made for you upon it roads, that you might be guided, you can travel place to place, and who sends down rain from the sky, in measured amounts, even our best set that he did not send water down from the sky, like

01:13:47--> 01:14:35

he sent it down at the flood of new hardy center. Because if that would happen, that water is falling down from the sky, you know, in, in, in unlimited quantities, that what would happen, life would be impossible, and we revive there by a dead land. Thus will you'll be brought forth, meaning after a rain, you will also come back to life and who created the species all of them and is made for you of ships and animals, those which you mount, that you may settle yourselves upon their backs and then remember the favor of your Lord, when you have settled upon them and say Suba Hannah lady Sahara Nana hada lahmacun Allahu mccreaney. We're in Isla abena lemon Cali Boone Exalted is He who

01:14:35--> 01:14:59

has subjected this to us, and we could not have otherwise subdued it, and indeed we to our Lord will surely return. So this shows us that when we also travel, especially when we sit in a vehicle, whether it is a car or a train or a bike, what should we do? We should make the raw and we should say this one, because this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, we learned that once early they'll do a lot more and who is

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

He He sat on his right. And when he placed his foot in the stirrup, he said Bismillah three times Bismillah Bismillah Bismillah. And then he said, Alhamdulillah and then he said this door Subhana Allah de Sahaja, Luna and then he said Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah they said, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And then he said, so the harmonica in the column to nuptse, fulfilled Li for in the hula for the Nova Illa, anta glories to you, indeed, I have wronged myself, so forgive me, for indeed none forgive sins except you. And then he smiled. So he was asked that, why did you do this? He said, This is what I saw the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm doing

01:15:40--> 01:16:23

meaning he sat on his animal in the same way. He said the same things. And then he smiled. Why did he smile? Because indeed, your Lord is very pleased with his worshiper, when he says that Oh my Lord, forgive me my sins, indeed, no one other than you forgive sins. So when we travel also, we should glorify and praise alone, we should seek forgiveness from Allah soprano Tara. And remember, travel should cause us to reflect. And these days, especially every single time that we step out of the house, when death seems ever so certain, any, it's it's so frightening every single time that you step out of your house, we should think about our return to Allah. Travel should remind us of

01:16:23--> 01:17:05

our journey through life, of the transitory nature of this life, that just as we head towards a certain destination, we are also moving towards the end of our lives, that one day, we will depart this world and we will return to Allah. So we are in fact, travelers, we are not meant to stay here in this life. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Be in this world as if you were a stranger, or traveler. So when you're traveling, the focus is not on the journey itself. The focus is always on the destination. Likewise, our purpose in life should not become this world itself. We should not forget the destination. When you sit in a plane, you don't start making yourself at home

01:17:05--> 01:17:46

in your seat. No, you're just waiting to get off. And this is why in this life also our focus should be on our return to Allah, but they have attributed to him from his servants a portion indeed men is clearly ungrateful, or has he taken out of what he has created daughters and chosen for you have chosen you for having sons. And when one of them has given good tidings of that which he attributes to the Most Merciful In comparison, his face becomes dark and he suppresses grief meaning the people of Makkah, the Arabs, many of them hated having daughters. Yet they would ascribe daughters to a loved meaning, they would say that angels are Ella's daughters. So is one brought up in ornaments

01:17:46--> 01:18:26

while being during conflict on evident attribute to Allah, meaning this is what you attribute to them. And they have made the angels who are servants of the Most Merciful females, did they witness their creation? Have they seen their bodies are the actual female, their testimony will be recorded, and they will be questioned? And they save the Most Merciful had willed, We would not have worship them, they have have that no knowledge they are about falsifying This is a false argument, or have we given them a book before the Quran to which they're adhering? We have given them no proof, rather than say, indeed, we found our fathers upon a religion and we are in their footsteps rightly guided

01:18:26--> 01:19:08

meaning they're only blindly following their forefathers. And similarly, we did not send before you any Warner into a city, except that it's affluent said, Indeed, we found our fathers upon a religion and we are in their footsteps following and they had no proof besides that, each Warner said, even if I brought you a better guidance than that religion upon which you found your fathers, they said, Indeed, we in that with which you were sent our disbelievers we're not going to believe in you fun to come namun home. So we took group so we took retribution from them. So see how was the end of the deniers and mentioned when Ibrahim said to his father and his people, indeed I am dissociated from

01:19:08--> 01:19:49

that which you worship Ibrahim Rene, Sam did not blindly follow his forefathers except for he who created me and indeed he will guide me if he created me. I'm going to take his guidance and he made it a word remaining among his descendants that they might return to it meaning Ibrahim artists and and believed in though hate and he established though hate and now he's an example that however, I gave enjoyment to these mean the people of Makkah and their forefathers until they came to them the truth and a clear messenger. But when the truth came to them, they said this is magic and indeed we are concerning and disbelievers and they said why was this quote are not sent down upon a great man

01:19:50--> 01:20:00

from one of the two cities they said why Mohamed Salah local produce and and why not some rich person of influence from Makkah or from thought if it is said Do they distribute the mercy of

01:20:00--> 01:20:41

Our Lord, It is we who have apportioned among them their livelihood in the life of this world, and have raised some of them above others in degrees of rank, that they may make use of one another for service, but the mercy of your Lord is better than whatever they accumulate. So here in this ayah, we see that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who decides who should get what people don't get to decide that. And Allah subhanaw taala has kept differences in people how that He has given more power, more status, more wealth, more popularity, more abilities to some individuals, and not to others. And this is not a sign of Allah subhanaw taala his approval with some and disapproval of

01:20:41--> 01:21:25

some No, Allah subhanaw taala has made this division based on his wisdom, we learn in a hadith that Indeed, Allah has divided amongst you your manners, just as he divided amongst you your provisions, meaning he decides who should get how much, and there is a wisdom, there's a reason behind that. And what is that reason that See, if every person had everything that they needed, then what would happen, people would not be in need of one another. By placing our needs in others, Allah subhanaw taala has created a dependency within us there is a healthy dependency, we need one another. Because if we did not need one another, we would abandon each other, and that would, you know, harm us. So

01:21:25--> 01:21:59

we are in need of each other. And this is also a test that how is it that we are going to treat one another? That How is it that we're going to work with one another? Are we going to cheat? Are we going to cut corners? Are we going to be honest, are we going to be oppressive? Are we going to be rude? What are we doing? abou de la jolla Horne who mentioned that once there was an argument between him and another man whose mother was a non Arab, and in that argument, who de la hora, and who, you know, he said some bad names to to the other person's mother. And this is something that you know, people do because they're used to it. So the man complained to the prophets of Allah.

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

And the Prophet sallallahu already said and asked a Buddha, did you abuse so and so a Buddha said yes. He said, Did you call his mother about names? He said, Yes, I did. He said, you still have the traits of Jay Z in you. Meaning This is not something that befits a believer, a believer does not talk like this. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that they meaning your slaves or servants, they're your brothers, and Allah has put them under your command. So the one under whose hand Allah has put his brother should feed him of what he eats, and give him dresses of what he wears, and should not ask him to do a thing beyond his capacity. And if at all, he asks him to do a

01:22:38--> 01:23:18

hard task, then he should help him in that. So if Allah subhanaw taala has put you in any capacity above other people, this is not because you're the best. No, this is your test, when OLAP in your corner, NASA omata wahida and if it were not that the people would become one community of disbelievers, we would have made for those who disbelieve in the Most Merciful for their houses, ceilings and stairways of silver upon which to mount meaning less proud of would have given them a lot in this world. But then what would happen, people would think that not believing in Allah is the right thing to do, because people get so easily influenced by money, and for their houses, doors and

01:23:18--> 01:24:03

couches of silver upon which to recline and gold ornament. But all that is not but the enjoyment of worldly life, sopran Allah, no matter how much a person has of this world, eventually it is going to come to an end and the hereafter with your Lord is for the righteous woman you're sure and victorious man, and whoever is blinded from remembrance of the Most Merciful, we appoint for him a devil, and he is to him a companion, a stuff that a law, and he shed upon then becomes his guide, his companion, his friend, of who, of the person who neglects the remembrance of Allah, this is his punishment. This means that the angels leave this person and shaitan draws near this person, and

01:24:03--> 01:24:44

then what happens, and indeed the devils avert them from the way of guidance, while they think that they are rightly guided, a little low. So then what happens is that the vicar of Allah becomes even more difficult for such a person, and they don't even realize that what they're doing is wrong. So the shell team, the devil is friends, they take them further and further into error. But the person who remembers Allah, then remember, Allah subhanaw taala helps him the angels help him. Remember that Vicar is your fortification against shape on your hair at a salon. He gathered the bunnies through you, and he addressed them. And one thing that he said in that address was that I command

01:24:44--> 01:25:00

you to remember a lot a lot, because the example of the person who remembers Allah a lot is like a person who is being chased by an enemy. The enemy is right behind him. And what happens this person then comes into a

01:25:00--> 01:25:40

fortress, which is very, very strong, so he gets inside of it, and now he is safe. And just like that, as long as a person is remembering Allah, they are in a fortress, they are protected and who is that enemy, it is the shape on so every time you leave the vicar of Allah shake on it is able to keep company with you. He's able to attack you, he's able to put Westwater in you so it is necessary that we fortify ourselves with the the kind of Allah and the vicar of Allah includes what it includes the recitation of the Quran, it includes the vicar in the morning and in the evening. at an end it includes they could throughout the day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that

01:25:40--> 01:26:20

there is no one among you, but there has been appointed for him, one companion from among the jinn, and another companion from among the angels. You know how these we learned that when a person goes to bed, an angel, and the devil both rushed to him, the angel says, and your day with good, and the shaitan says mdrd with evil. So if the person who remembers Allah until sleep overtakes him, meaning he's making Vicar, soprano, low and humble and La, la, la, la Cava is making the cut, and while making Vicar, the person falls asleep, then the angel expelled the shape on and spends the night watching over him. And when he wakes up, and Angel and a devil, hasten towards him, the angel sets

01:26:20--> 01:26:59

says, start your day with good and the shape Vaughn says, start your day with evil. So if a person praises Allah, than the angel expels the shape on and spends the day watching over him, so proud Allah, but if we fail to remember Allah, then who are we giving space to? Who are we allowing next to us in our company, it is shaitan whether you have a builder, so fortify ourselves with the vicar of Allah. In other Hadees, we learned that whoever says La ilaha illallah wa, la sharika. Now mercola will handle your hair where you meet, well, who are alike Alicia and Cody 10 times after Muslim, then Allah subhanaw taala will send for him protectors, angels to guard him from shaitan

01:26:59--> 01:27:43

until he reaches the morning meeting, then you're protected against a pan until the morning. So remember, when a person makes the color of Allah, then the hold and effect of shaitan decreases, it weakens. But when a person fails to remember Allah than champion only gets stronger. And as long as you remember Allah, Allah remembers you. And this is why we need to remember Allah, individually, but also collectively, as groups, meaning in your family, also as your home, don't just focus on your own recitation or your own Vicar, your own Salah also worship together, had Elijah Anna until when he comes to us at judgment, he says to his companion, or I wish there was between me and you

01:27:43--> 01:28:26

the distance between the East and West, how wretched a companion stuffit Allah, and you personally will say to that shape on Pauline, that shaitan friend, that Trayvon companion that I wish I never knew you. I wish I never saw you. I wish you had never been with me. So it is important that we ask ourselves, who is it that we're spending time with? What is the first thing we do when we wake up? Is it the phone? Who is it? What is it that we mentioned when they in Fira como neoma Islam tone? and never will it benefit you that day when you have wronged that you were all sharing in the punishment? Then will you make the deaf hear or guide the blind or he who is in clear error and

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

whether or not we take you away in depth indeed we will take retribution upon them or whether or not we show you that which we have promised them indeed we are Perfect in Ability for STEM sick, believe it or hear a lake. So adhere to that which is revealed to you hold on to the Quran, remain connected with it. Keep making the kind of Allah fortify yourself. Don't get distracted by one thing or another. Because you see, these are all attempts of shaitan. Like for example, when we wake up, the first thing we want to do is check our phone. When you start checking your phone, what are you doing, you're failing to make the kind of a law and the more time you spend with your phone, the

01:29:07--> 01:29:48

less time you're spending in the vicar of Allah. So first I'm sick hold on to his thumb sockets to hold on to something firmly in one's hand and hold it firmly in your hand. So we need to see what is firm in our hands these days. Is it the most health or is it the phone for STEM sick bility who here a lake in Carlisle set up and Mr. Kane, indeed you are on a straight path. And indeed it is a remembrance for you. This quote is a vehicle for you a source of great honor, because sometimes we feel that if we're spending time with the Quran, we're missing out. No, you're not missing out. It is a source of great honor for you. When you call make an altar for your people. And you all are

01:29:48--> 01:29:59

going to be questioned and asked those we said before you have Our Messengers have we made besides the Most Merciful deities to be worshipped and certainly we did send Moosa with our science to fit our own and his establish

01:30:00--> 01:30:37

And he said, Indeed, I am the messenger of the Lord of the worlds. But when he brought them our signs at once they laughed at them. And we showed them not a sign, except that it was greater than its sister greater than the sign before it. And we sees them with affliction, that perhaps they might return to faith. And they said to Moosa, every single time that all magician Invoke for us, your Lord, by what he has promised you, indeed, we will be guided, mainly because of your position you call upon Allah and if he removes this affliction from us, then we will believe. But when we remove from them the affliction at once they broke their word, they did the very things they

01:30:37--> 01:31:17

promised to leave, and for their own called out among his people. He said, Oh, my people, does not the kingdom of Egypt belong to me? Am I not the king, and these rivers flowing beneath me? What a lie, then do you not see? Or am I not better than this one who is insignificant and hardly makes himself clear, meaning he was making fun of masahisa because mozzarella salon would at times stumble in his speech. So he made fun of him, that look, he's insignificant, that he is from the buddy is a slave nation. And he hardly makes himself clear, whereas musasa was actually very clear in his message. He was very, very clear in his speech, he made the rubbish lovely, sorry, where Sydney

01:31:17--> 01:32:00

Emery? Why hello, Europa melissani. So musasa was clear in his message unless Panasonic gave him soltanto mubin a clear authority, clear evidences, but for their own failed to see that he failed to acknowledge that, then why have there not been placed upon him bracelets of gold? Or come with him the angels in conjunction meaning if he's really the Messenger of God, how can you support? How come he's not wearing a lot of gold? How come he's not impressive? How come there's no, you know, angels around him? So he bluffed his people, he tricked them, and they obeyed Him. Indeed, they were themselves the people defiantly disobedient of Allah. And when they angered us, for them as a

01:32:00--> 01:32:31

foreigner, we took retribution from them and drowned them all. And we made them a precedent and an example for the later peoples. And when the son of Millennium was presented as an example, immediately your people laughed aloud, the people of Makkah laughed out loud, and they said, Are our gods better? Or is he they did not present the comparison except from your argument. But in fact, there are people prone to dispute. So there is a certain incident behind this once the prophets of Allah already sent him said that nothing that is worshipped besides Allah

01:32:32--> 01:33:12

has good in it mean there is nothing that is worshipped besides Allah except that it is void of Hyatt. So the mercy came, they said, Well, what about the son of Medina, meaning a Salah, his son, and he is also worshipped besides Allah that means there is no good in him. So this ayah was revealed that they said this, not because they were seeking truth. They said this to belittle the truth. And likewise, there are questions that people you know, come up with today, not out of genuine curiosity, but simply to mock at the truth. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us He said, No people go astray after having followed right guidance, but those who indulge

01:33:12--> 01:33:56

in disputes, and then he recited this ayah so refrain from arguing for no reason. And if you have a question, ask, but from a place of genuine curiosity, not to mock, he started his salon was not but a servant, upon whom We bestowed favor, and we made him an example for the children of Israel in and if we will, we could have made instead of you angels succeeding one another on the earth, meaning what do you think of yourself, Allah, Allah can replace you. And indeed reset is that I will be assigned for knowledge of the hour meaning when he will return that will be assigned at the hour is very near. So be not in doubt of it, and follow me. This is a straight path and never let shaitan

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

over you. Indeed he is to you a clear enemy, Allah, Allah clarifies the matter of reciting his Sunnah. And when he started, he said on broad clear proofs, he said, I have come to you with wisdom, and to make clear to you some of that over which you differ, so fear Allah and obey me. Indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. This is a straight path. So this was the message that he said is that I'm gay. He never told people to worship him. What happened then, but the denominations from among them differed and separated. So woe to those who have wronged from the punishment of a painful day, meaning people differ amongst themselves and they came up with these

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

false beliefs regarding a Saudi asylum, are they waiting except for the hour to come upon them suddenly, while they perceive not a healer Yama, even Bardo home liberal dinner I do. In my claim, close friends that day will be enemies to each other except for the righteous. You see, a friend is supposed to be someone who supports you, someone who helps you in need and if they leave you at a time when you're in

01:35:00--> 01:35:45

difficulty that means they're not really a friend. So real friendship is actually between people who fear Allah. It is between people who center whose cause reason for loving one another is Allah zildjian. This is why the Buddha clean, they will remain friends with their friends in the Hereafter, they will not become enemies to one another. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the most firm handhold of a man is to love for Allah and to dislike also for the sake of Allah. Why? Because when you love someone for the sake of Allah, then the company of such people increases you in a man because they love you for the sake of Allah, not for you. And this is why

01:35:45--> 01:36:29

they will not hesitate to tell you when you're doing something wrong, to help you to to remind you, and remember, a person in the hereafter will be with those whom he loves. A man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said, O Messenger of Allah, what do you say about a man who loves some people but cannot catch up with their good deeds? Any he can never be like them? Because they're they're way better than him. Or he he hasn't met them because they lived before him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said everyone will be with those whom he loves. You see, there are people that we know of. Right? We admire them, and we love them. And sometimes they also know us

01:36:29--> 01:37:14

and they love us in return. And yes, this is very healthy because a lot minoo yet Li foo, foo believer loves and is loved. This is part of Eman And we see that there are many bonds between people, right people love each other for because they're married or because of family ties. Or because you know, personalities just click right or you admire what they do. For example, their performance, they play sports really good, or the fact that they represent your country etc. These are bonds, right? But remember the strongest bond that will outlast any other bond and that will survive any hurdle is the bond of loving one another for the sake of Allah zoologia and if a person

01:37:14--> 01:37:23

has not experienced this kind of love, they have not experienced the sweetness of faith. They have not actually enjoyed Eamonn

01:37:24--> 01:38:07

and loving for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Remember, it is the fruit it is the byproduct of loving Allah, because when you love Allah, then you love everything that reminds you of Allah, that helps you know a lot better and worship a lot better. That is connected with worshiping Allah soprano Tada. So loving someone for the sake of a love means loving those who are on the path of Allah, which means loving the prophets of Allah and the angels of Allah, loving the companions of the Prophet sallallahu earning the Send them loving the righteous, the scholars, why because of their piety, because you see this love is because of the love of love of Allah. For example, we love

01:38:07--> 01:38:20

a bucket of the Allahu anhu not because he gave us gifts, you know, because he helped us financially he gave us money. No, we love him because of his Eman. We love him because of Allah azza wa jal

01:38:21--> 01:38:38

and loving someone for the sake of Allah. This will be a source of honor on the Day of Judgment. Allah subhanaw taala will say on the Day of Judgment, amen mother have buena be Jalali. Where are those people who love one another? Because of my honor. Today I will give them shade.

01:38:39--> 01:39:21

And this is a day when there is no shade except my shade of a Muslim holiday. He said that I said tomorrow Do you love Mourinho? That by Allah I love you for the sake of Allah. Any little hip Book of Allah, I love you for the sake of Allah. So for our little de la Mourinho, he drew him close, and he said, What did you say? So he repeated himself. So Mara de la Martin, who said that I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that those who love each other for the sake of Allah will be on podiums of light on the Day of Judgment, and they will be under the throne of Allah, on a day when there will be no shade except the shade that Allah gives. So Muslim said that I left from that

01:39:21--> 01:40:00

place and I came to Oba and summit and I mentioned this hadith to him. So he said, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that a lot the exalted says that my love is guaranteed for those who love one another for my sake, my love is guaranteed for those who spend on one another for my sake. My love is guaranteed for those who visit one another for my sake, they will be on podiums of light in the shade of the throne, when there will be no other shade besides it. So we should purify our love. We should purify our friendship. You know if you really love someone, love them for the sake of Allah and how do you

01:40:00--> 01:40:38

Do that, that you love them for their piety, and which means that if you really love them, then you will do something to call them to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. So that they draw closer to Allah, right? They become a better servant to Allah, you will share the poor on with them, you will share good things with them. And I would encourage you that we have a few days left now in this program, people that you love your good friends, your family, you know, your spouses, your children, people that you live with people that you work with, share this goodness with them, if you really love them, you want the best for them. And you want that that relationship that you have with them,

01:40:39--> 01:41:24

you know, lasts forever, but that will only be if both of you are on the same page. Both of you have the same goal which is to please Allah subhanaw taala and how is it that we can learn how to please Allah subhanaw taala what will remind us what will teach us what will encourage us it is the book of Allah. So purify your love, strengthen your love, strengthen your friendship, by making it lilla and filler for the sake of Allah, er a body, such people will be told all my servants, no fear will there be concerning you this day? Nor will you grieve? Imagine, people are drowning in their sweat. And if you love someone for the sake of Allah, you are in sha Allah, on a podium of light, under the

01:41:24--> 01:42:11

shade, in the shape of the throne of Allah under the throne of Allah, Allahu Akbar, no fear, no fear, no grief. But who are these people? You who believed in our verses, and were Muslims enter Paradise, you and your kinds delighted until more as well you calm and remember as large means spouses, it also means those who are like you, meaning those who are similar to you, who you work with, to whom you are will be delighted. So those who love each other for the sake of Allah, our friends for the sake of Allah, they will stay together, circulated among them will lead plates and vessels of gold, and they're in his, whatever the sole desire, and what delights the eyes, and you

01:42:11--> 01:42:58

will abide there in eternally, until v. Holly Dune, gold and silver dishes are mentioned here. And drinks and food is mentioned here. And the delight of the eyes, we learned that the that there will be a person in genda, who will wish to drink something. And the picture of the cup will come itself to him. So Pamela, you don't even have to order it will come itself with the local agenda. And that is paradise which you are made to inherit, why for what you used to do for you there is much fruit from which you will eat. On the other hand, indeed the criminals will be in the punishment of hell, abiding eternally, it will not be allowed to subside for them and they they're in our in despair and

01:42:58--> 01:43:43

despair is so painful. You see a blast is to despair in such a way that makes a person completely silent. nothing left to say. And we did not wrong them. But it was they who were the wrongdoers and they will call all Malik lecture Lord, put an end to us just finish us terminate us. He will say indeed you will remain. We have certainly brought you the truth. But most of you to the truth, we're averse and we need to examine our hearts that what is our attitude towards the truth abramo Amman or have the device some affair? Do they have some way of escape? But indeed we are devising a plan? Or do they think that we hear not their secrets and their private conversations? Yes, we do. And our

01:43:43--> 01:44:25

messengers are with them recording kelemen Cathy bean, say, if the Most Merciful had a son than I would be the first of his worshipers. exalted is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, Lord of the Throne above what they described. So the fact is that Allah has no son, no child, no equal, no partner, so leave them to converse vainly and amuse themselves until they meet their day, which they are promised. And it is Allah who is the only day to the heaven and on the earth, the only day to you meaning He is worthy of worship up in the skies and down here on earth. And he is the wise the knowing what about all Kennedy and bless it is he to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and

01:44:25--> 01:45:00

the earth, and whatever is between them, and with whom his knowledge of the hour and to whom you will be returned. And those they invoke, besides Him do not possess power of intercession, but only those who testify to the truth can benefit and they know so no one can intercede without the permission of Allah. And if you ask them who created them, they would surely say Allah, so how are they diluted? What can Leanna be in her una como la you may know. And Allah acknowledges his saying, who's saying the saying of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his complaint

01:45:00--> 01:45:38

That oh my lord indeed These are people who do not believe. So what should you do first for her and home so turn aside from them and say Salaam peace but they're going to no meaning don't get affected by what they say distance yourself from them with peaceful words, and soon they will find out about what they deserve Sugata Doohan Bismillahirrahmanirrahim how meme by the clear book indeed we sent it down during a blessing night indeed we were to warn mankind. Here the blessing night is mentioned Laila Timbo Baraka, which is later to

01:45:40--> 01:46:25

the night of power. Why? Because this is the night in which the Quran was revealed. And it is Laila to mubaraka the blessing at night because it is the night in which the Quran was revealed and it is better than 1000 months as Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran. Remember, the Quran is mobarak right? It is bless it, it is full of Baraka. And this night in which the Quran was sent down his ultimate bottle, it is full of Baraka. So the person who worships Allah on this night, Allahu Akbar, such a person will reap great benefits, great blessings. This is why seek this night how don't just wait for the signs to appear, no worship Allah subhanaw taala every single night of the

01:46:25--> 01:46:32

last of the remaining nights of the month of Ramadan, exert yourself a great deal. That was the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

01:46:34--> 01:47:15

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this month has come to you and in there, and in it, there is a night that is better than 1000 months, whoever is deprived of it is deprived of all goodness, and no one is deprived of its goodness, except one who's truly deprived. So exert your effort, try hard sleep during the day, you know, do something during the day so that at night you're able to worship Allah subhanaw taala. And part of that worship should be that you pray PM, you know, the 100 and then recite some Quran and also give sadaqa make Vickers and also because now you're with your family, also hold a gathering of meaning share something good with your family, because

01:47:15--> 01:47:53

this is also a way of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. One good thing that you have learned today, share that with your family tonight, so that in sha Allah, they will also do something good. And as a result of that you will increase in your hustle net. And we learned that this night is called layer two mubaraka also because the angels descend on this night, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he described the night of power a little cuddle. And he said in this night, there are more angels on earth than the number of pebbles. So imagine there's so many angels that are witnessing your deeds in sha Allah, your good deeds. Now these angels, what do you think? Aren't

01:47:53--> 01:48:31

they going to pray for you? Aren't they going to intercede for you? A low fee? Hi, you've rokoko lu embrun Hakeem, on that night is made distinct every precise matter. I mean, this is the night of the night of decrees. So this is why we should also make Dora Yes, we should engage in worship, but also make Dora and write down things that you want to ask Allah subhanaw taala for, you know, get a book of doras you know, download an app in which all of these beautiful daughters of the prophets have a level or two cinema recorded so that you don't miss out. You also ask Allah subhanaw taala for good for good things.

01:48:32--> 01:49:19

Remember that the decrees of Allah are written in four places, there are four records, one is low harm are fools, right? Where 50,000 years before the creation was created, all of the decrees were written. Then there is the clear remedy, which is an Al Kitab bottle, or Maria, which is the decree of a person's life, which is written when when the child is in the womb of the mother. And then thirdly, there is the record which is called a duck doodle heavily or send away the annual decree and this is what is given to the angels on Laila toccata. Meaning the angels are told are commanded on this night this is what's going to happen this is what you're supposed to do in the coming year.

01:49:19--> 01:50:00

Who is to die who is to get sick who is to win or lose or earn learn or forget something traveled somewhere or not travel go for Hajj or not eat, buy sell everything that is given to the angels and this is why we must make a lot of offer ourselves that Yeah, Allah decree what is best for us. And then finally, the fourth is duck little yummy daily meaning the angels record our deeds every day. And this is also a record and it is recorded as we perform our deeds. So remember kulu Shay in because everything is by decree, even inability and intelligence, meaning every thing is decreed by Allah soprano Carlo and the decree of Allah is an

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

Rule Hakeem ne It is based on his wisdom. Indeed, we were to send a messenger Ramadan middle of big as mercy from your Lord. Indeed he is the hearing the knowing. Remember, Lana Takata is the same night on which not only the Quran was revealed, but previously, all the scriptures were revealed in Ramadan, also in Laila to mobile aka, Lord of the heavens and the earth, and that between them, if you would be certain, there is no deity except Him and He gives life and causes death. He is your Lord and the Lord have your first forefathers. But they are in doubt, amusing themselves, then watch for the day, when the sky will bring a visible smoke, Allahu Akbar, what an important night. But

01:50:44--> 01:50:59

unfortunately, a lot of people don't realize. So they spend the night this wasting it away, eating this going out, you know, watching stuff, talking away. These are precious moments, every single moment is precious.

01:51:00--> 01:51:17

So they are amusing themselves, but this is not going to last forever, because the signs of the hour going to appear very soon. And of them is the visible smoke, covering the people. This is a painful punishment, our beloved and our beloved in our best will deliver on who

01:51:18--> 01:52:01

he meant. A lot of the Lockhart who not sure which our delight is, but he mentioned that this smoke was actually the result of the famine that the people of Makkah experience because when they refuse to obey the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, the Prophet sallallahu earthen Madara against them, so they were stricken with famine and fatigue, so much so that they ate even bones. And a man would look towards the sky and imagine seeing something like smoke between him and the sky, because of extreme fatigue. So this is the de Haan. But we also learned in Hades that a Doohan is certain Smoke will appear very close to the Day of Judgment. So when that will appear, people will say Our Lord

01:52:01--> 01:52:41

removed from us the tournament. Indeed we are believers. But how will there be for them a reminder at that time, it's too late. And there had come to them a clear messenger that they turned away from him and said he was taught and is a madman. Indeed, we will remove the torment for a little and this happened with the people of Makkah, their famine was removed, and they were given rain and blessings. But what happened? Indeed you disbelievers will return to disbelief, but this is not going to last forever. The day we will strike with the greatest assault indeed we will take retribution and we had already tried before them the people of our own and their came to them a

01:52:41--> 01:53:22

Noble Messenger Musashi said I'm saying, render to me the servants of Allah. Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger and saying, Be not arrogant with Allah. Indeed, I have come to you with clear authority, and indeed I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me. But if you do not believe me, then leave me alone. And finally, he called to his Lord, that these were criminal people, unless had been set out with my servants by night, indeed you are to be pursued and leave the sea in stillness, meaning leave it as is don't bother to close it after you have crossed it. Indeed, they're an army to be drowned. And what happened after that, how much they left behind have

01:53:22--> 01:54:11

gardens and springs and crops and noble sites and comfort wearing they were amused thus and we cause to inherit it another people, Allahu Akbar, everything was left behind, and the heaven and earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved. No one felt pity for these criminals. They weren't missed, a little love. The thing is, that the earth the ground, on which you worship, Allah also loves you. Which means that when you stop worshiping Allah, it misses you. Remember the member, the, the stump, on which the prophets of Allah where it is and would stand and address people, when it was replaced, that stump it it wept in wailed, meaning these things also, they begin to love you

01:54:11--> 01:54:52

when you worship Allah. But when people commit facade on Earth, they commit corruption on Earth, when they leave the earth, neither the earth cries upon them, nor the sky, meaning they are actually relieved that these oppressors are removed. And we certainly saved the children of Islam, from the humiliating torment from fear own Indeed, he was an arrogant one among the transgressors. And we certainly chose them by knowledge over all the world's ills. pelotonia raised those weak and oppressed people. Why, because of their knowledge, and we gave them of signs that in which there was a clear trial. Indeed, these disbelievers are saying, there is not been our first death and we will

01:54:52--> 01:54:59

not be resurrected, then bring back our forefathers if you should be truthful, are they better meaning they think so highly of themselves?

01:55:00--> 01:55:41

Are they better are the people of Dunbar who were ancient Yemeni kings and those before then we destroyed them, for indeed they were criminals. And we did not create the heavens and earth and that between them in play, this is not a place of entertainment. We did not create them except in truth, but most of them do not know in neoman. Firstly, my call to action Marine, indeed, the day of judgment is the appointed time for them all the day, when no relation will avail a relation at all, nor will they be helped, except those believers on whom Allah has mercy. Indeed, he is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful allies alara Aziz on Rahim.

01:55:42--> 01:56:33

inicia Jota zacco. Indeed, the tree of the comb is food for the sinful like murky oil, it will boil within their bellies like the boiling of scalding water, it will be commanded, seize Him, and drag him into the midst of the Hellfire, then pour over his head from the torment of scalding water, it will be said taste indeed you are the honor the noble This is what you believed about yourself, that you are very respectable and very honorable and to high and to and to great to worship Allah in the hazama going to be eaten tone, indeed, this is what you use to dispute. Indeed, the righteous will be in a secure place. Look agenda, how it is being described, Muhammad amin is a cure place within

01:56:33--> 01:57:17

gardens and springs, because you see security is a blessing. In fact, without security, you cannot enjoy anything, wearing garments of fine silk and brocade facing each other. Thus, and we will marry them to fair women with large beautiful eyes because no one will be singled in gender, they will call their in for every kind of fruit safe and secure. Again, safety is mentioned, especially safety when it comes to eating. And this is something that we can relate with. Very, very well today. So panela someone even when you're buying food from the grocery store, you have your fears. You have your apprehensions, right, then what if the virus is on this apple that I am picking a look at? How

01:57:17--> 01:57:47

much are you going to clean? How much are you going to wash your hands, this lack of a man lack of security, this is agonizing. It's truly agonizing. So we should really repent to Allah and beg Allah that Allah give us a man again. And this is a reminder that real Amen, real security is only and only in Jannah. Allah subhana wa tada is unmukt Min, the giver of security, so we should call upon Him, we should ask him to give us Amen.

01:57:48--> 01:58:30

And you see, especially when it comes to food, we eat with apprehension, right? The fear of the calories or the heartburn or the bill that we have to pay or the stomach issues or the shortage of food or the next grocery trip trip that we have to make. But people in general, they will call they're in for every kind of fruit safe and secure. May Allah give us the fruits of jedna layer the Kona fee hunt mode, they will not taste death they're in except the first death any there is no death now in Jenna. And there is no sleep even in Jenna and he will have protected them from the punishment of Hellfire mean people will not need to sleep so they will not be overcome by sleep. If

01:58:30--> 01:59:17

they want to rest and take a nap any of course that's a luxury so why not as bounty from your Lord? That is what is the great attainment. And indeed, we have ease the Quran in your language in your tongue that they may be reminded. So this shows us that the Koran is easy in a lot of complicated book of philosophy that is above and beyond the average person. No, it is so relatable. It's reminders are so beautiful. So watch indeed they are watching for your end, meaning they're also watching. So you also wait then who is ultimately successful. sudo Sujatha Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. How mean? The revelation of the book is from Allah, the Exalted in Might the wise indeed

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

within the heavens and earth are Signs for the believers and in the creation of yourselves and what he disperses of moving creatures are Signs for people who are certain in faith and in the alternation of night and day, and in what Allah sends down from the sky of provision and gives life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and in his directing of the winds are Signs for people who reason. So here, signs of Allah soprano, todos greatness and his oneness are mentioned. The fact that he has created the skies in the earth. He has created people and animals the night and the day, the ray that he sends down the girls, all of this is pointing towards what these are the verses of

01:59:56--> 02:00:00

Allah which we recite to you in truth. They point to

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

oneness His perfection, then in what statement after Allah and His verses will they believe, meaning what will move them is this if this Quran doesn't want to every sinful liar who hears the verses of a live recited to him, then persists arrogantly as if he had never heard them. So give him tidings of a painful punishment, hear tidings of a painful punishment has been given to who the person who is sinful, and is a liar, who hears the verses of Allah. But then he goes on, pretending and living as if he never heard a thing, meaning he arrogantly rejects them, and he does not change his way at all. Whether you are the biller, and this is something that we need to think about also, that when

02:00:46--> 02:01:23

we hear when we learn what happens to us, and when he knows anything of our verses, he takes them in ridicule, if he learns anything of the formulas to market the Quran, those will have a humiliating punishment before them as hell and what they had earned will not avail them at all, nor what they had taken besides Allah as allies, and they will have a great punishment this quarter on his guidance, and those who have disbelieved in the verses of their Lord will have a painful punishment of foul nature, it is Allah who subjected to you the sea, so that ships may sail upon it by his command, and that you may seek of his bounty, you may travel to places and perhaps you will be

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

grateful, maybe Are you going to be grateful, and he has subjected to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, all from him. Indeed, in that are Signs for people who give thought, say to those who have believed that they should forgive those who expect not the days of Allah Allahu Akbar, forgive people who don't believe in the Hereafter, why forgive them,

02:01:47--> 02:02:26

because this forgiveness will benefit you. So that he may recommend to people for what they used to earn, leave the recompense to Allah, whoever does a good deed, it is for himself. And forgiving people is also a good deed, you will benefit yourself and whoever does evil, it is against the self meaning, meaning he will suffer because of it, then to your Lord, you will be returned. And we did certainly give the children of Israel the Scripture and judgment and Prophethood and we provided them with good things in this life and prefer them over the worlds and we gave them clear proofs of the matter of religion. And they did not differ except after knowledge had come to them out of

02:02:26--> 02:03:08

jealous animosity between themselves. Indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ. Then we put to you a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on an ordained way on the shed era, concerning the matter of religion. So follow it and do not follow the inclinations of those who do not know, meaning the religion that you have is from Allah, ordained by him, so follow that don't follow the desires of people. Why? Because indeed, they will never avail you against a law at all. And indeed, the wrongdoers are allies of one another. But Allah is the Protector of the righteous. So never feel alone and afraid. This Koran is

02:03:08--> 02:03:47

enlightenment for mankind, and guidance and mercy for people who are certain in faith. So this shows us that the coming up known for those who have been then this Quran will enlighten them, it will be a source of guidance and mercy for them a healing for them? Or do those who commit evils think we will make them like those who have believed and unrighteous deeds, that we will make them equal in their life and their death? Evil is that which they judge, they can never be the same. And this is so clear, that there's two completely different ways of living two completely different paths, and therefore, the destinations are also completely different. We learned that fallait amenorrhea he

02:03:47--> 02:04:30

would worship through the night and he would say that I wish I knew which of the two groups I belong to a loved one is a group of people who believe and do righteous deeds, and the other is of those who commit evil, both will not be the same in the Hereafter, they will have different results. So this is why this is called the if that makes worshipers cry, because no one knows what and they will have. And Allah created the heavens and earth and truth and so that every soul maybe recompense for what it has earned, and they will not be wrong. Have you not seen He who has taken as his God, His own desire, stuck with Allah, He is led by his desire, meaning he's a slave, a worshipper of his

02:04:30--> 02:05:00

desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge. Meaning even though this person has knowledge is knowledge has not helped him and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision, a veil. So who will guide him after Allah? Then will you not be reminded? And this shows us very clearly, that we must not be a slave to our desires. Even our best said wherever the desire of the novices mentioned in the Quran. It has been

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

condemned, meaning it has never been mentioned in a positive way. This is why whenever you are in doubt, meaning you have two options before you don't know whether to do this or to do that, then we'll have people will not be set the goal with that which your knifes does not like, meaning go with that, which are novices least inclined to why because that will be the better option. So soheila to three he would say that your desires your disease, if you oppose it, then then you will be cured. So we should not follow our desire blindly. And they say there is not but and they say there is not but our worldly life, we die and live and this is why some people their ultimate goal

02:05:39--> 02:06:15

is what to satisfy their desires here, and nothing destroys us except time. And they have of that no knowledge they're only assuming. And when our Verses are recited to them as clear evidences. Their argument is only that they say bring back our forefathers if you should be truthful, while resurrection is going to happen, but it's time after the this world has been destroyed. It's not going to happen right now. Say Allah causes you to live then causes you to die, then he will assemble you for the Day of Resurrection about which there is no doubt, but most of the people do not know and to allow belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And the day that our

02:06:15--> 02:06:59

appears that day the faults of fires will lose. And you will see every nation kneeling what are called lomatin Jeff iya, kneeling from fear being today, people stand arrogantly tomorrow all their greatness will go away. Every nation will be called to its record and told today, you will be recompense for what you used to do this, our record speaks about you in truth. Indeed, we were having transcribed whatever you used to do in code Nana stancy, who malcontent, Dharma Loon. Remember, everything that we're doing is being recorded by the angels, killam and ketamine and at times, you know, take a moment and think, look to your right and to your left and remind yourself

02:06:59--> 02:07:40

there there is angels here recording what I am doing, even this is being recorded. So as for those who believed in the righteous deeds, their Lord will admit them into mercy into his mercy.
