Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:20--> 00:01:16

are other Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish. rocklea sorry, were silly MD. Dr. tam melissani Yakubu Kohli Allahumma the combi was said the listening was fooled. schemata can be an in your opener I mean, just number 26 Sunil cough Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. How Meem then z Lu kita, Amina la healer Aziz and Hakeem How mean? The revelation of the book is from Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Wise, we did not create the heavens and earth and what is between them, except in truth, and for a specified term. But those who disbelieve from that of which they are warned, are turning away at the beginning of

00:01:16--> 00:02:07

the sooner, just like at the beginning of many other suitors. Allah subhanaw taala praises his book, Allah subhana wa tada reminds us of the fact that this keytab this book is truly from him, that it is Allah who has revealed this book gradually, and Allah is an Aziz the Exalted in Might. So this book is also mighty, and he is ever wise and Hakeem so this book is full of wisdom. So remember, that this Quran, this book has come to prevail, not to be prevailed over, it has come to judge not to be judged by people, it has come to guide not to be led by people. So we must benefit from the Quran. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, by this book, Allah will exalt some

00:02:07--> 00:02:52

people and degrade others. Meaning through this book, those people who believe in it, who follow it, that Allah subhanaw taala will honor them, because Allah is Allah disease. And his book is also a disease, it is honorable, and so those who live by it, that Allah subhanaw taala will also honor them, and those who reject it, those who turn away from it, those who fail to benefit from it, then this will be a source of their degradation. And also we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever places the Quran before himself, it will lead him to paradise, and whoever places it behind his back, then it will drive him to hellfire. So we must believe in this book in

00:02:52--> 00:03:45

its correctness in its benefit in its divine source, and we must reflect upon it, learn it and follow it because giving this book its due attention and respecting it is in fact part of showing respect to Allah azza wa jal even Masuda de la Mourinho said that in the kulambu, when you hit boo, boo, that every individual worthy of respect, loves that he is that he is treated with due respect, every individual worthy of respect, loves that he is treated with due respect. And he said, What in that other Billa he'll earn and indeed respect for Allah is the Quran, meaning, the way you show up to Allah is by showing up to the book of Allah by paying regard to his book, and that is by

00:03:45--> 00:04:34

believing in it by following it by reflecting upon it by learning it. And Shelton's focus is to keep people away from the Quran. To keep them in ignorance. IGNOU Josie Rahim Allah Allah said that you should know that the first trick of shaytaan to prevent them from that the first trick of shaitan is to prevent them from learning. It is to prevent them from accessing, why because knowledge is a light. So when their lamps are extinguished, they are left to wander about and stumble in darkness. So this is what shaitan wants that people should stay in darkness. And Allah subhanaw taala sent his book to bring this out of darkness. So shaitan also makes learning the Quran difficult for people.

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

So for example, in who baileigh lahemaa hula, he said that after plots have shaken is to turn people away from reflecting upon the Quran, because he knows that the Quran is guidance and that guidance can only be obtained from the Quran through reflection. So when Allah subhanaw taala has revealed this book, then he has revealed it for our guidance, so we must learn it we must reflect

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

act upon it, and we must not turn away from it. And then we see that with the revelation of the book, the creation of the skies and the earth is also mentioned, the fact that Allah subhanaw taala created all of this for a reason. And what's the connection over here? The connection is that the one who has revealed this book is the one who has also created the skies and the earth. So our understanding of this world can never ever be correct. It can never be complete. Unless and until we learn what this book teaches us what the creator tells us about the purpose of creation, what the creator tells us about the origin of this universe and its outcome. So remember that no matter what

00:05:46--> 00:06:33

we observe, no matter what we test, no matter what we theorize and hypothesize, etc. all that knowledge is incomplete and useless, unless we learn what the Creator has informed off, unless we supplement our knowledge with the knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala has revealed. In fact, the Quran should form the basis and the foundation of our knowledge and understanding and our worldview. So this entire existence, Allah subhanaw taala informs is here, it is not for no purpose, nor is it going to remain forever. Allah subhanaw taala created us for his worship, and there is an end to this world, and after that is recompense for what we do. But yet there are people who do not believe

00:06:33--> 00:07:17

and whenever they are warned, they turn away, they fail to benefit from the Quran, say, oh, Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa send them Have you considered that which you invoke besides Allah, show me what they have created of the earth? Or did they have partnership in creation of the heavens, bring me a scripture revealed before this, or a remaining trace of knowledge, if you should be truthful, meaning there is not a thing, except that Allah subhanaw taala is its creator, this universe existed even before these idols were made. And Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created all of this. So when He is the Creator, when he is the first, then he alone deserves worship, and who is more astray

00:07:17--> 00:07:59

than he who invokes besides Allah, those who will not respond to him until the Day of Resurrection, and they have their invocation are unaware soprano law, you may have experienced this, that at times you called someone and you're getting really annoyed that how come they're not answering my call? How come they're not responding to my messages, and then you find out that they don't even have their phone with them, you find out that their you know, phone is lost. And this is why they're they don't even know that you're calling them. So this is in fact, the state of those who are being called upon besides Allah, they have no idea. Those who are in the graves have no idea that they're

00:07:59--> 00:08:40

being called upon, that people are coming to worship them. So how is it that they will ever respond? And even if they knew that they were being called upon, how could they respond? How could they answer when they don't even have power to protect themselves? if they had any power? Would they be in the graves or would they be on earth soprano law? What either Hoshi lon Nestle canula whom are the and when the people are gathered that day, they who were invoked besides Allah, will be enemies to them, and they will be deniers of their worship. And when our Verses are recited to them, as clear evidences, those who disbelieve, say of the truth when it has come to them. This is obvious

00:08:40--> 00:09:24

magic, meaning when they don't have anything to refute it with because the truth is clear. And it is established them they just say that it is magic, or do they say he has invented it, say, if I have invented it, you will not possess for me the power of protection from Allah at all. He is most knowing of that in which you are involved, sufficient as he as witnessed between me and you, and he is the Forgiving, the Merciful, say, I am not something original among the messengers, meaning I am not an you know, a first messenger. Rather prophets have come before me, nor do I know what will be done with me or with you, meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not have absolute

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

knowledge. He did not know what was going to happen to him in the future or to anybody else in the future. It is only Allah soprano tada who knows that I only followed that which is revealed to me and I am not but a clear Warner. So we learn from this very clearly that no one knows what a person's final outcome will be. besides Allah subhanaw taala only Allah knows what a person's final end will be. We learned that a lady at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. omala she she

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

Was her and her family. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam established the bond of brotherhood between her family and earth men, even his own little dealer horn who who had migrated. So basically, they're the ones who hosted him. So he lived with them. Now what happened is that Earth man will do a lot more on who Earth minded was around, he fell ill, and he died. So when he died, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came. And when he was sitting over there, omala she said, Oh, I saw him. May Allah's mercy be on you? And I bear witness that Allah subhanaw taala has honored you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, How do you know that Allah has honored him?

00:10:42--> 00:11:27

She said, I do not know. May my father and my mother be sacrificed for you all as messenger, but who else is worthy of it, if not Earth man, meaning he made his law and he fell ill and he died, any, if Allah subhanaw taala will not honor Him, then who else will be honored? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that as to him by Allah that has overtaken him, and I hope the best for him by Allah, even though I am the messenger of Allah, yet I do not know what will be done to me. So Omar that said that by a lot, I will never assert the piety of anyone after him. But this made her sad. And then later on, she had a dream that there was a flowing stream for both men and women. So she

00:11:27--> 00:12:09

told the Prophet sallallahu rvsm, about that. And he said that that symbolizes his good deeds. So the fact is that we should have good expectation, we should have good assumption, we should have good hope. And we should also make the law but we should never ever pass judgment, neither on ourselves nor on other people, that this person is definitely this individual is definitely going to be honored by Allah, this individual is certainly going to paradise. We are not in that position to pass judgment. It is only Allah soprano tada who has the authority to do that. Say, have you considered if the Quran was from Allah, and you disbelieved in it, while a witness from the children

00:12:09--> 00:12:47

of Israel Ah, l has testified to something similar and believed while you were arrogant, Indeed, Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. So remember, among the People of the Book, there was our beloved in San Angelo de la Mora, who, who wasn't just an ordinary person, he was a knowledgeable man, he was a scholar among them. And he believed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that when he saw the face of the Prophet sallallahu, earlier said, and he knew that that was not the face of a liar, even though he believed of dilepton senem still his people, they did not accept his testimony, they turned away. And those who disbelieve, say, of those who believe, if it

00:12:47--> 00:13:32

had truly been good, they would not have preceded us to it. And when they are not guided by it, they will say this is an ancient falsehood. We see that the people of MCI especially, they look down on the believers on the fact that the believers were not that well off, they were not that you know, wealthy, etc. So this is a reminder to us that Islam is not just for the elite. Islam is not just for the wealthy, for the powerful, or for those who are highly educated. For those who are academic know the honors for all people. Islam is for all people, and before it was the scripture of Moosa to lead and as a mercy. And this is a confirming book in an Arabic tongue to warn those who have

00:13:32--> 00:14:23

wronged and as good tidings to the doers of good in alladhina Carlota buena WA, indeed those who have said, Our Lord is Allah, so must accountable and then remained on the right course, because they believe that Allah is their Lord. So now there's trying to please Him. So now so now they have become firm on the right course there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. Those are the companions of Paradise abiding eternally, they're in as reward for what they used to do. Lois Lane in Santa BYD day he is Santa. And we have enjoined upon men to his parents good treatment. Why? Because hemella to mukuru ha, well, our to call her his mother carried him with hardship, and

00:14:23--> 00:15:00

give birth to him with hardship. Well, how many who was the asylum who said are thrown a shock law and his gestation and weaning period is 30 months. There are three verses in the Quran that begin like this, that will assign an incentive be led, that Allah subhanaw taala says that we have instructed the human being to be good to his parents, meaning Allah subhanaw taala has instructed us to be good to our parents. Why? Because the greatest right among the creation is of the parents meaning your greatest obligation.

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

And your greatest duty is towards your parents, not to your children, it is towards your parents, even if their religion is different, the Prophet sallallahu and his son was asked a EULA Amelie a Hubble interval, which deed is the most beloved to Allah. And he said, US Allah to unlock the prayer at its proper time. And he was asked, then which one he said, so mobility and wedding, then it is to be good to your parents. And remember, as we see in this ayah, that from the parents, also the mother and the mother and the father, it is the mother that deserves even better treatment, meaning her right is greater than that of the Father. We all know that famous Hades where the person came

00:15:44--> 00:16:27

and asked the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, that who amongst people deserves my best treatment? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Oh, milk, your mother, the question was repeated again. He said, your mother, your mother, he said this three times. And then he said, your father, meaning be three times more respectful and more kind to your mother than you are to your father. Why? Because the mother does for her child, what even the father does not do what the Father cannot do. And there are three things that really only the mother does, and they're mentioned in this ayah What are they first of all, the gestation the pregnancy, which is which is when and I know widening, meaning it is

00:16:27--> 00:17:13

hardship upon hardship, and no one shares the load of her pregnancy. There is ever increasing difficulty each day she feels weaker than the previous her life is at risk. Her body is transforming her life changes, there is fatigue, there's great discomfort, there's body aches, there is back ache, and then secondly, giving birth hemella to omo Cohan WordArt, who called her she bears the child with difficulty, and then she delivers the child with great difficulty also in which is excruciating pain, and it nearly kills her. And then the third thing that she says that the mother only does is the nursing of the child, meaning she alone, nurses, the child will Hamlet who have

00:17:13--> 00:17:56

insomnia, who's the latona shadow and 30 months going this entire duration, which is physically and mentally exhausting for the mother. So we see that the father does not have any share in these three things. Yes, he is there. He may be there he may be very supportive. Yes, he may spend, but the actual exertion is by the Mother Earth I mean, Rahim Allah said that the Father only has pleasure, meaning in the creation of the child, and the mother nearly dies, meaning she nearly dies in giving birth to her child. And this is the reason why the mother's right is three times greater than that of the Father. And this is why when the mother needs her children, then the greatest virtue for a

00:17:56--> 00:18:33

person is to take care of the mother and to help her we see in Hades, that being good to the mother is actually more important than even going for jihad in the way of Allah. We learned that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and said O Messenger of Allah, I want to go for Jihad with you, seeking there by the face of God and the hereafter. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Is your mother alive? So the he said, Yes, she is. He said, Go back and honor her, go back and take care of her. So this companion, any he approached, the Prophet sallallahu arisen from the other side repeated the same question. And the Prophet sallallahu Ortiz and again told her go

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

back and honor her. And this happened three times. Why? Because the individual the person who has who has experienced so much hardship, for your sake, who has dedicated so much love, even if the mother did not, you know, give birth willingly, or, you know, have you willingly, but still she experienced great hardship because of you, then what does she deserve, she deserves good treatment from you. And our Dean teaches us that we should do good to those who have done good to us that we should do exam to those who have done to us. Sometimes we see that it happens that the parents are in need of their children, they need their children to, you know, drive them around, to talk to them

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

to do errands for them, and they're not able to do things themselves anymore. And in such a time, children must take care of their parents, and they should not underestimate what they do to serve their parents. Because it is more important than voluntary prayer also, because remember, you can break your voluntary prayer and fulfill the needs of your parents. And then you can go and complete your prayer later. The rights of the parents, especially the mother has its own place and never think that because you're doing so many good things. You can neglect your parents. You can you are you can never justify neglecting your parents. Remember that

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

We learn in a hadith that there was a woman who called her son while her son whose name was Junaid, who was a monk. It he was he was praying at that time. So his mother came and he called her and she called him that older age. And due to age, he was worshipping at the time and he said, Oh Allah, here is my mother. And here is my prayer. What do I do? And he continued with his prayer, he ignored his mother. So his mother again said, Oh gerade Audra. He called him three times. And Junaid ignored his mother. So she got really hurt. And she got angry with him. And she said, Oh Allah Do not let Jude age die until he sees the faces of prostitutes and stuff at Allah. Yoni, he was so righteous

00:20:46--> 00:21:25

and you know such a devout worshiper, but he was neglecting his mother so much. So his mother also initially reached her limit. So she prayed against him. And what happened? There was a woman who gave birth and when people asked her, that, Whose child is this, she said, this is a child of God, meaning she accused him of having committed Zina. So then people you know, they came, they came out in anger and rage that you know, you're supposed to be a monk and someone so righteous and you are committing Zina. So drage went to the baby and said, Oh child, who is your father, and the child, the baby spoke, that it is actually the shepherd. So Allah subhanaw taala, also exonerated him. But

00:21:25--> 00:22:11

we see that Allah subhanaw taala accepted the draw of the mother against her son, even though her son was a righteous, devout worshiper. So never, ever think that just because you were doing good things, you have the right to neglect your parents. No, you must strive to please your parents, to make them happy. You should try to listen to their problems and help solve them. Even if they're non Muslim. You help them in whatever way possible, even if they're doing things that are illogical, they are telling you to do things which are illogical, you disagree with them. 100%. But still, you must be respectful towards them a smack into the bucket when her mother was visiting. And her mother

00:22:11--> 00:22:50

was not a Muslim. She asked the prophets of Allah who are who said that what do I do? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said slightly omake, that join ties with your with your mother, meaning be good to her. And this is of course, in lawful and good things. Meaning, if your parents asked you to do what is wrong, then of course you do not cooperate with them. But even that should be with utmost respect. Meaning you must disagree with respect. And sometimes it happens that you know, you cannot get along with your parents, no matter what you do. In fact, parents can be abusive, verbally or even physically, or they may have done certain things to you know, really damage you and hurt

00:22:50--> 00:23:36

you. And it's very difficult for you to move on from that. But still, you know, you will not be held responsible for your feelings. You are responsible for your behavior, for your actions for what you say and what you do. So be so guard your your external around your parents, meaning don't say disrespectful things, don't behave in a rude and arrogant manner around them, you can be quiet, but you should not be rude, you should not be harsh, you can avoid argument, but you should not argue and insult them, no matter how much you disagree with them. And we see that when a person takes care of their parents, then this is this is a means of forgiveness for major since we learned that a man

00:23:36--> 00:24:19

asked even our basketball, Dylan horn who about you know, the fact that this man had committed certain major sins he had committed murder, and had been our boss asked him that is your mother alive? The man said no. So he said, repent to Allah as much as possible, and try to draw near him as much as you can. So later on, someone asked him that Why did you ask him if, if his mother was alive, he said, even our best said, because I don't know of any deed that draws a person closer to Allah, other than dutifulness to the mother, meaning when you're good to your mother, then this is a deed that really draws you closer to Allah subhanaw taala. So today, as we study this, as we talk

00:24:19--> 00:24:57

about this, that make sure you do something good with your mother, with both your parents, but especially with your mother, give her some gift, make her happy, help her somehow, if they are near, go help them. And if they're far, then do something else. And if they have passed away, then give sadaqa on their behalf. So that when they see their rank being increased in the Hereafter, and they wonder why that is happening. They're told that this is because of the doors of your children. This other call that your children have given the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that indeed, a lot raises the rank of a righteous servant and paradise. So the servant says, Oh my Lord, how did I

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

get this? Why did this happen? A little

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

pound dollar says, because of that is the father of your child for you, meaning because your child used to seek forgiveness for you, this is why your ranks have been elevated. So for parents who have passed away, then make dos for them, gifts, other call for them, seek forgiveness for them. And this is all very helpful for them. And remember, it is important that the husband and wife support one another and encourage one another in doing this bedroom, Wiley Dane is an excellent deed that Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do. So a wife should encourage her husband, to be good to your mother, be good to father, and the husband should support his wife, that goal be good to your

00:25:41--> 00:26:21

mother, be good to your father, because this is something that Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do encourage each other, to spend on on your parents to spend time with them to take care of them. And this is very, very important in which we need the support of each other. And parents also should be children also should encourage their parents that you know that they should be good to their parents. So the so this is something that we need encouragement in. And also remember that no matter what you have done for your parents, it is never ever enough. Because sometimes we think that you know what, they were sick, and we took care of them. Or you know what, they have no place to

00:26:21--> 00:27:05

live. So now they're living with us, or we help them with this. And we help them with that. No matter what you do for your parents. Remember that you can never ever pay them back. We learned that even our modal dialog moron who he saw a Yemeni man going around the Kaaba while carrying his mother on his back. And he was saying that I am your camel, if her mount is if amount of someone is frightened, I am not frightened, meaning no matter what, I will not leave you I will not, you know ignore you, I will take care of you. So then this man asked even Omar that what do you think have I repaid her and it almost said no, not even for a single grown, meaning when she gave birth to you,

00:27:06--> 00:27:51

she suffered such excruciating pain that you can never ever pay her back. So never be content with the gift that you gave your mother last year, or that you massaged her her head a long time ago, or that you honored her request once upon a time, no matter what you do, they always deserve more. And this is what is sad is what is said that sometimes, even when someone has mistreated you, you still do good to them. You still do good in response to them. You see, parents must be good to their children. But parents are after all human. And you know what, especially you know, the first child, you know, the first the adult child, he suffers a lot at the hand of new parents. Because you know,

00:27:51--> 00:28:34

parents are experimenting, basically. So any parents, whatever they do, they do it with the best that they know. And sometimes they have great expectations of their children. And sometimes, you know, they do make mistakes because they're human. But we should remember that parents are human, they are not perfect. They made their share of mistakes. But still Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to be good to them. And you know what, when you do good to someone, even though you have been hurt by them, remember, this is a way of indefatigability here isin this is a way of repelling that which is bad with something good. And when you will do that Allah soprano title will

00:28:34--> 00:29:16

turn your enmity into friendship. A lot of people complain that you know what I try my you know, I really want to be close to my parents, I want to have a good relationship with them. But I cannot Why? Why is it that we cannot have a good relationship with our parents because sometimes we only dwell on the mistakes that our parents have made, or the mistakes that our parents are still making. We are only dwelling on them. And we are completely overlooking and ignoring the good that we have received from our parents, you know, the fact that they are spending on our education, the fact that they have provided us a comfortable home, the fact that they that they you know give us money, the

00:29:16--> 00:30:00

fact that we are able to travel the world because of them. The fact that you know they have provided us financial security, and so much more. Okay, they're human and you know, they yell and they get angry and they get annoyed. their deeds are for them. Remember that they're responsible for how they treat you. But you are responsible for what you do. So instead of focusing on the mistakes of your parents, start focusing on what you are supposed to do with them on how you are supposed to treat them. So remember that parents deserve a son. And part of that exam is that we remember and we talk about the good that they have done to us. Not that we

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

dwell on their mistakes. And we should also make the offer our parents, we learned that Abu Nainital de la Mourinho, he wants to return from a journey. And when he entered his, you know, area, he shouted out in his loudest voice, that Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu it all mother, meaning, oh, my mom, you know, Oh mom, may peace be upon you may the mercy of Allah and His blessing be upon you. And she replied, and peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah and His blessing be upon you to remember, a boy who never has mother at one point did not want him to be a Muslim. Remember that she did not like the fact that a Buddha was Muslim, who requested the profits at a level where

00:30:45--> 00:31:26

he was done that make the offer my mother, that she accepts Islam, and she didn't accept Islam. So now look at this, what a beautiful relationship they have. And it is possible that even though you have been estranged from your parents, for many years, there have been many, many, many uncomfortable things. Many, you know, a lot of bitterness, a lot of hurt, it can be overcome with a son. So a boyhood I don't have a lot more I know. He said, may Allah have mercy on you, as you raised me when I was a child. Look at what a Buddha does, remembering the fact that she raised him, not the fact that she was hostile to his Islam for so many years. And she resisted and she disliked

00:31:26--> 00:32:14

it. No, he, he, he did not focus on that. He focused on the fact that she that she raised him and she replied, My son, may Allah reward you well, and be pleased with you. As you were beautiful towards me when I was old, Allahu Akbar had either better or should the who were below her Albertina Senate. And he grows until when he reaches maturity and reaches the age of 40 years. You see 40 years is mentioned over here. Because typically, a person begins to value their parents when they're older, when they're 40 years old. Why? Because this is the age of maturity. This is the age when a person finally begins to take life seriously. And perhaps they have you know, children of their own

00:32:14--> 00:32:53

by now who get on their nerves. So now they can finally appreciate their parents. Because when you face the struggles of parenting, you remember your own parents. So what who should the who were better on barinas? anathan. And you see at this age when a person is 40. You know, typically a person is very busy. Why? Because they have their own aging parents. And they also have a young family of their own. And both of them need you. So you feel very divided. That what do I do, you feel very divided that on the one hand, you have to help your children, for example, do their homework, but on the other hand, you also know you haven't seen your parents for a few days, you

00:32:53--> 00:33:34

need to go spend some time with them. Right? So you you are torn between your children and your parents. And no matter what you do, no matter how much you strive to, you know, be good to your parents, but because you know there's so much stress of your work and then the stress of parenting you do become slightly irritable and and what happens is that even though you're not trying to be rude with your parents, sometimes that stress is reflected in the way that you speak with them in the way that you deal with them. And sometimes your fatigue you know you are tired and exhausted and even though you wish to do good to your parents but you're not able to you want to go and do that

00:33:34--> 00:34:19

you know errand for your parents but you are not able to because you only have limited capacity. You only have so much time so then what do you do? How do you live with that guilt? You turn to Allah you seek a loss of primatologist help a lot of money an ash Cora near Metallica, Letty anon de la. Yeah. Where are they? Oh, well, he the year. He says My Lord enabled me to be grateful for your favor, which you have bestowed upon me and upon my parents. Yeah, Allah, you give me the ability to be grateful to you and to you for the favors that you have given me directly. And for the favors that you bestowed on me through my parents, any I am not able to express to could on my own, I need

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

your help. I need your help you Allah. And this is a fact that we must remember we cannot treat our parents good without the help of a law. So if you are struggling, if you are struggling with this, that you are not able to, you know, be good to your parents that no matter what you do, you still you know come across as rude, you answer back and then later on you regret. seek the help of Allah learn this and make the star of a las panatela has taught us this surah in the Quran. So this should be your goal. Learn this Torah and make it every day that he or Allah, you give me the ability. You give me the strength

00:35:00--> 00:35:43

This is a favor that you have bestowed on me. And I am not able to appreciate this favor. So you give me the ability, I need your help. And then you see that it is mentioned in this door that you give me the ability to be grateful for the favor which you have bestowed on me, and also upon my parents, because there are many blessings that we enjoy, because of our parents, through their status, through their education, through their financial and social stability, their good character, and especially their, their religion. Remember, the children benefit a great deal from what their parents have, if you think about it, people study, they work this settle, why to have a family and

00:35:43--> 00:36:29

to take care of that family. And so often, parents don't get to enjoy the money that they earn. Why? Because all of it or a major portion of it is going and going on who on their children, because they want their children to study in Islamic school. So they're paying private school fees, they're paying for their own education, they're paying so that they can take them for over for Hajj, Subhan, Allah, any all of these expenses that your parents have incurred for your religious upbringing, right. So you have benefited a great deal, because of your parents. Remember that we are the first beneficiaries of the blessings that our parents receive, even if our parents were not Muslim. Still,

00:36:29--> 00:37:12

the fact that they raised us the fact that they gave us food and drink any, whatever it is, whatever we received through our parents, we benefited from that, whether it was a lot, or it was little, whether it was religious, or it was material, any any blessing that we have received to our parents is is worth appreciating and being grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for remember that even the mistakes of your parents, in fact, can be a blessing for you. Because the mistakes that your parents make those mistakes teach you that you know what I am going to be better than this. I am not going to be like this. You know, there are people who, for example, they were neglected by their parents.

00:37:13--> 00:37:55

But then when they become parents themselves, they become very attentive parents towards their children, they become very, very loving towards their children very caring towards their children. So don't dwell on the mistakes of your parents move on from that, focus on what you can do. And remember that when a person is grateful, they only benefit themselves. So he prays that Oh, my lord enabled me to be grateful for your favor which you have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and to work righteousness of which you will approve meaning allow me to do in my remaining life, something worthwhile, and make righteous for me my offspring, meaning make them a coolness of the eyes for me,

00:37:55--> 00:38:17

and also make me a coolness of the eyes for my parents, indeed, I have repented to you, and indeed, I am of the Muslims. So this shows us that at the age of 40, a person must make Toba and a person must consciously revive their faith and must consciously analyze their life, that how am I towards my parents, towards my children? And what is it that I am doing in my life?

00:38:19--> 00:39:06

So we see over here, that we must be grateful for the blessings that we have received through our parents. Remember that when it comes to being good to our parents, this can be in a number of ways. This can be in the way of us helping them and supporting them in doing good. Like it's my father and his son. He helped Ibrahim alayhis salam how in building the karma, we learned that both of them constructed the karma is Mariela his son would bring the stones and Ibrahim Ernest and I would build the walls of the karma, use of Islam. When he, when he was on the throne. He he made their own. He honored his parents, and he left far away here and then right so you honor your parents who do

00:39:06--> 00:39:53

assign to your parents, not just by helping them, but also by honoring them by showing respect to them. And then by spending on them also, you see we spend in our families, because we know that that is our responsibility, but we must also spend on our parents and again for this, the husband and wife should support and encourage one another. You see, when when a husband went What if a woman sees that her husband is spending on his mother on his father, he she should be happy that unhemmed in law 100 Allah he's pleasing Allah subhanaw taala because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, he encouraged people to spend on their parents in the Quran. Also, we learned that when it

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

comes to voluntary spending, rewardable spending, it's the parents that are mentioned first

00:40:00--> 00:40:37

Likewise, when a woman is spending on her parents, the husband should be happy. He should be supportive. In fact, he should give her money that you know what? Go buy a gift for your go buy a gift for your parents. And this is not something that we should be stingy about. This is a way of earning rewards with Allah subhanaw taala. This is something that pleases Allah. This is something that earns a person Jana, we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I saw in my dream that I entered paradise. And there I heard the recitation of the Quran. So I asked Who is this? And I was told it is Hadith. Norman and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Kodak can

00:40:37--> 00:41:25

be connected and bid. Why? Because how does Allah de la Mourinho Wakanda above Renae Naseby Rumi, he was the most beautiful of people to his mother, any he out of all people, he was the one who would take care of his mother the most. So goodness towards parents is something that leads to agenda. Don't compare yourself to others. Look at your own situation, and see what you can do. Given your situation and your relationship with parents. What is it that you can do? What little can you do? And how can you improve so that in sha Allah, you also earn Jana, you also earn Jenna through this gate. Those are the ones from whom we will accept the deeds. Those are the ones from whom we will

00:41:25--> 00:42:06

accept the best of what they did, and overlook their misdeeds, their being among the companions of Paradise. This is the promise of truth, which they had been promised. But the one who says to his parents off to you, Do you promise me that I will be brought forth from the earth. Any there are other children who become so disrespectful towards their parents that look at how they speak to them, and they reject Islam, they reject the resurrection, when generations before we have already passed on. Any so many people died before no one has been resurrected yet. And you say that there's resurrection. What are you talking about? Look at this arrogant attitude over here. Well, they call

00:42:06--> 00:42:50

to Allah for help. And to their son Walter, you believe indeed the promise of Allah is truth. But he says this is not but legends of the former people. So you see, there are some pious parents whose children turn out to be like this. And remember, it is our duty to be respectful towards our parents. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah has made it prohibited for you to be disrespectful to your mother's any This is not accepted by Allah. Allah Allah, Allah does not like it at all. In a hadith we learn, learn to love woman Subbu. While he, Allah has cursed the person who insults his parents, so you can have your disagreements, you can disagree with them, and you can

00:42:50--> 00:43:32

know that your parents are wrong. But most of the time parents are actually right. But even if you're 100% sure, still, you don't have the right to be disrespectful. Those are the ones upon whom the word has come into effect, who will be among nations which had passed on before them of jinn and men. Indeed, they all were losers when he called Linda Raja to mimar Emmylou and for all there are degrees of reward and punishment for what they have done. And it is so that he may fully compensate them for their deeds, and they will not be wronged. Remember, there are 100 levels in Paradise, and each person will get their level according to their deeds. And the day those who disbelieved are

00:43:32--> 00:44:14

exposed to the fire, it will be said, You exhausted your pleasures during your worldly life and enjoyed them. So this day you will be awarded the punishment of extreme humiliation because you were arrogant upon the earth without right and because you were defiantly disobedient. So we see here, that a person should be very grateful and remain fearful when enjoying good things in life, that perhaps, a person might be told on the day of judgment that you already enjoyed your share in the world, you are compensated there. So in the Hereafter, there is nothing for you. You see, when you receive good things in life, thank Allah, and also also have that fear and also beg Allah that He or

00:44:14--> 00:44:57

Allah don't make this a means of my deprivation in the hereafter. We learned that the companions would cry when good things of this life were brought to them. Once Abdullah was fasting, and food was brought to him to break his best, and he said most of the winner made was martyred and he was better than I. Yet he was shrouded in a sheet such that if his head was covered, his feet were exposed and if his feet were covered, His head was exposed, and then worldly wealth was bestowed upon us. We are afraid that the reward of our deeds has been given to us in this life. And he wept so much that and he left the food he couldn't eat, and mentioned Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

sallam, the brother of odd when he was

00:45:00--> 00:45:42

His people in the region of cough and Warner's had already passed on before him and after him saying, do not worship except Allah Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a terrible day, they said, Have you come to delude us away from our gods, then bring us what you promise us. If you should be truthful, he said, knowledge of its time is only with Allah. And I conveyed to you that with which I was sent, but I see you to be a people behaving ignorantly. And when they saw it as a cloud approaching their valleys. They said, this is a cloud bringing us rain. Rather, it is that for which you were impatient, meaning the punishment, a win within it is a painful punishment. within

00:45:42--> 00:46:24

it, a painful punishment, destroying everything by command of its Lord, and they became so that nothing was seen of them except their dwellings. Thus do We recompense the criminal people, and we have certainly established them in such as we have not established you. And we made for them hearing and vision and hearts, but their hearing and vision and hearts avail them not from anything of the punishment, when they were continually rejecting the signs of a law. And they were enveloped by what they used to ridicule, sopran Allah, and he, they had their eyes and ears and hearts, but they were too busy in the world. And so they did not turn to Allah, neither listening to nor reading the vicar

00:46:24--> 00:47:06

of Allah, then this is what became of them, that all of their faculties were useless, will occur, the alaknanda Helder comb, and we have already destroyed what surrounds you of those cities. And we have diversified the signs or verses that perhaps they might return from disbelief, then why did those they took besides Allah as deities by which to approach him, not aid them? Where did they go when the punishment came upon them, but they had strayed from them. And that was their false hood, and what they were inventing what is sort of net la corona phenomenal Jean, and mentioned when we directed to you a few of the gene, a group of the jinn, listening to the Koran, and when they

00:47:06--> 00:47:52

attended it, they said, Listen quietly, be quiet. And when it was concluded, they went back to their people as Warner's, what good souls, these genware this was their first encounter with the Quran. And when they heard the Quran the first time, they realized that they had to show other and this is why he didn't listen to the Quran attentively. They also told each other Be quiet. And listen, they showed respect. And that is why they were able to absorb the Quran and take its effect. And when they internalized it, they were able to pass it on, they were able to convey it. And this is what is mentioned in the Quran that people should learn the deen and then when little coma homido Roger la

00:47:52--> 00:48:32

him they should go warn people when they return to them. Remember that whatever we learn of the Quran is not just for us to enjoy, you know, just at that moment, no, this is for us to internalize and for us to pass on. So these gene became one vidrine meaning they went and they became Warner's to their people meaning to the rest of the gene. So we see that profits were sent among the humans, but Warner's were sent among the gene also. And remember that the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said I was sent as a messenger to the jinn to, which is why at several occasions he recited the Quran to them, and the jinn asked them as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam several questions, and he guided

00:48:32--> 00:49:15

them in those matters. They said, Oh our people, indeed we have heard a recited book revealed after Mussa, meaning this has been revealed after the total, confirming what was before it, which guides to the truth and to a straight path they didn't mention in the book because the law was actually the tone of all our people respond to the Messenger of Allah and believe in Him, Allah will forgive for you your sins, and protect you from a painful punishment. But he who does not respond to the color of Allah will not cause failure to him upon earth, and he will not have besides him any protectors, those are in manifest error. Do they not see that Allah who created the heavens of the earth and did

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

not fail in their creation? He did not get tired after created them is able to give life to the dead. Yes, indeed, he is over all things competent. And the day those who disbelieved are exposed to the fire, it will be said, Is this not the truth? They will say yes, by our Lord, then they will admit he will say then taste the punishment, because you used to disbelieve phosphate, Kumar sobre una Azmi Mina Russell, so be patient or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as were those of determination among the messengers and do not be impatient for them. Meaning Do not ask for punishment for your people. Why? Because it will come at its due time. It will be on the day. They

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

see

00:50:00--> 00:50:48

Which they were promised as though they had not remained in the world except for an hour of the day. This is notification and will any be destroyed except the defiantly disobedient people, meaning only those who disobey Allah than destruction is for them. sunart Mohammed Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, Allah vena cava Wu was adoring Seville Illa Allah, Allah whom those who disbelieve and avert people from the way of Allah, Allah will waste their deeds, their efforts will become useless, and those who believe and do righteous deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad, and it is the truth from their Lord, Allah will remove from them their misdeeds and amend their condition,

00:50:49--> 00:51:23

Allah will forgive them, and he will also amend their condition improve their condition. Why? Because that is because those who disbelieve follow falsehood, and those who believe follow the truth from their Lord. Thus does Allah present to the people their comparisons. So when you meet those who disbelieve in battle, strike their necks until when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds and either confer favor afterwards, or ransom them, until the war lays down its burdens. So here are some rules concerning the battle are being taught.

00:51:24--> 00:52:11

So remember that even with regards to battle, we have been given commands. Why? Because we're not to follow our desires in any aspect of our lives. That is the command. And if Allah had willed, He would end if Allah had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them himself. But he ordered armed struggle to test some of you by means of others and those who are killed in the cause of Allah. Never will he wastes their deeds, He will guide them and amend their condition and admit them to paradise which he has made known to them. Allah has made genda known to the believers, how how do they know about it through the Quran and through the Sunnah. And if you think about it, there's so

00:52:11--> 00:52:52

many details and descriptions of gender that are given in the Quran and in the Sunnah, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that, and specifically remember, Allah subhanaw taala will make gender very, very familiar to the people who will enter it, meaning they will know their rank, they will know their home their address without making any mistake, they will not have to ask about the way soprano law it will be ever familiar to them, as if they always belong there. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said by him in whose hand the life of Muhammad is, everybody will recognize his home in genda. Better than he recognizes his home in the world, Allahu Akbar.

00:52:53--> 00:53:30

And we also learned that people will enter agenda with their families, meaning those who are righteous, the righteous families will stay together in gender. And how is it that Allah subhanaw taala has made these homes in Ghana you see when you hit a woman janitor Allah for Allah home? So how is it that you need a home in Ghana, we learned from several a hadith about how you can get a home in Ghana, for example, when you pray the son in law tiba, the 12 so none of us that you pray with fudger and loja and Asa and Margaret and Trisha, right, the two with budget for six with level

00:53:32--> 00:54:13

three, sorry, two with mother and then two with Russia. So these 12 o'clock are out these are some relative of whoever performs them, then they will get a home in general. We also learned about praying for record at the time and for before the hook that whoever performs them will get a home in general, making a Masjid whoever builds a Masjid for the sake of Allah, Allah will build for him a house engine, remembering a low and entering the mall when entering the marketplace. So reciting sort of pseudo class 10 times, meeting someone for the sake of a law, this is also something that will give a house give a person a house in general, being patient in trial and filling gaps when we

00:54:13--> 00:54:59

form rules and leaving arguments. These are all causes of earning homes in Paradise, all you who have believed if you support Allah, He will support you and plan firmly your feet, meaning Allah subhanaw taala will give you firmness when you when you help the religion of Allah. Remember that Allah subhanaw taala does not need our help. So what is meant here is helping the religion of Allah, meaning financially help it in order that it may be spread, it may be taught, and then also take it to others learn it and teach it and when you will do that Allah subhanaw taala will give you stability also, but those who disbelieve for them his misery, and he will waste their deeds.

00:55:00--> 00:55:42

That is because they disliked what Allah revealed. So he rendered worthless their deeds, meaning when they disliked the Quran, then their good efforts will be wasted. Have they not traveled through the land and seen how was the end of those before then Allah destroyed everything over them and for the disbelievers is something comparable. That is because Allah is the Protector of those who have believed and because the disbelievers have no protector in Aloha, you're the hero Latina Ave. Why middle slowly, Hattie gymnotus, integrity min tactical and Ha. Indeed, Allah will admit those who have believed and unrighteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow. But those who disbelieve,

00:55:43--> 00:56:30

enjoy themselves and eat, as grazing, livestock eat, and the fire will be will be a residence for them. If you think about it, animals, their only concern is what to eat and to procreate. That's it. And unfortunately, many people live with the same purpose. So their obsession is to just eat well and have great relationships. But the believer has a greater goal. And that goal is the home of the hereafter. So believers not just concerned about fulfilling their pleasures here, they sacrifice some of their pleasures, they inhibit some of their pleasures, they, they, they contain them within the bounds of the lawful, so that they can get a home in Paradise, and how many a city was stronger

00:56:30--> 00:57:16

than your city which drove you out? We destroyed them, and there was no helper for them. So is he who is unclear evidence from his Lord like him to whom the evil of his work has been made attractive, and they follow their own desires. The description of Paradise, which the righteous are promised is what it is such that we're in our rivers of water on altered rivers of milk, the taste of which never changes, rivers of wine, delicious, to those who drink and rivers of purified honey. So four kinds of rivers are mentioned, in which they will have from all kinds of fruits and forgiveness from their Lord, is this like that of those who abide eternally in the fire and are

00:57:16--> 00:57:20

given to drink scalding water that will sever their intestines?

00:57:22--> 00:58:03

Any there's no comparison over here? Look at the blessings in Jenga. endless supply and look at the punishment in hell. There is no comparison. So think about it. Where are you going? What are you heading towards? And among them are those who listen to you until when they depart from you. They say to those who were given knowledge, what has he said just now? Any apparently they're listening to the Quran, but then later on, they talk about it as if it was something strange, as if it is something not even worth remembering. Those are the ones of whom Allah has sealed over their hearts, and who have followed their own desires. And those who are guided will Idina tetto zyada home houda

00:58:03--> 00:58:46

ally increases them in guidance, what I tell them toccoa home and he gives them their righteousness. So every time they hear the Quran, they learn something about it. They only increase in their guidance, a love image on them in home, then do they await except that the hour should come upon them unexpectedly. But already there have come some of its indications, then what good for them when it has come, will be the remembrance, meaning, what good will it be when the hour has come? You need to do something right now to create that positive change right now. Fire alarm. So you should know that there is no deity except Allah, knowledge comes first. And then ask forgiveness for your sin,

00:58:46--> 00:59:27

knowledge comes before action, and for the believing men, and believing women, and Allah knows of your movement, and your resting place. So we see over here that our last primatologists telling us messenger fire alarm, you should know that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah don't just repeat that statement. You should have knowledge and understanding of the statement. Just like that we have been told in the Quran Ariela Mo, you should know the reality of this life, that it is only play and amusement. We are told in the Quran, Ariela moon, you should know that your wealth and your children are a trial, that they are a test. So, we should have we should learn we should take

00:59:27--> 01:00:00

knowledge very seriously. And humble allow we have been given the opportunity to your last point Allah gave us the ability to go through the translation and brief you know, reflections brief explanation of some points, and we should make it make it a goal for ourselves that we want to study the Quran in more detail. We want to study these verses in greater detail. Today, my daughter was asking me that how can you only read the read the translation? So I explained to her that I only have a limited amount of time, and I cannot read the Arabic. So the fact is that the Arabic of the question

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

is worth understanding directly, that we need to understand the words of the Quran. And this should be our goal that we should, that we would that we desire to increase in our knowledge of the Quran. And you know, 100 and now with the ability that Allah gave you, you managed to do this in, you know, so many days in a row consistently every single day without a break. So insha Allah after this, you know, intend to join another program, where you study every verse of the Quran, every word of the Quran, because that will bring you greater knowledge in sha Allah. And that will lead obedience to ls command fire alarm, you should know increase in your knowledge, the Prophet sallallahu earlier

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

center was told that you should pray or visit near EMA. Oh my lord, increase me in knowledge. Because remember, action is not possible without knowledge. And if a person does not have knowledge, and they act, they work with ignorance, they could actually be making a huge error. So their effort could actually be a complete waste and not just a waste, but something that will bring them regret on the Day of Judgment. So it is important that we seek knowledge of the Quran, we increase in our knowledge of the Quran. So I would encourage all of you that make the intention right now that after Ramadan in sha Allah, join another class, join another program in which you study the Quran in

01:01:25--> 01:02:04

greater detail. Those who believe say, Why has a sutra not been sent down? Meaning the people, the Muslims at the beginning they would say that how come we have not been commanded to fight already? You know, we have enemies who have been so you know, who have been harming us for so long, we want to take revenge. So how come a pseudo of that nature has not been revealed yet? But then when a precise surah is revealed, and fighting as mentioned there in you see those in whose hearts as hypocrisy, looking at you with the look of one overcome by death, and more appropriate for them would have been obedience and good words, any sometimes it happens that in our eagerness, we get so

01:02:04--> 01:02:44

excited that you know what I want to do this, I want to do this. But then when we are given the opportunity we get afraid. So what is better obedience and good words? Meaning even when you are afraid of facing your new reality, still say good words? And what are those good words that you ask Allah subhanaw taala for help you Allah, you help me Don't say things like oh my god, this is impossible. Oh my god, this is too hard. I cannot do this. This is unbearable. You know what I I'm changing my mind. No, say good words, say husband, Allah, say your Allah, I started this, I made this good intention. Now I need your help. And say insha Allah, I will complete this. And don't

01:02:45--> 01:03:25

waste your effort on your reward through negative words. And when the matter of fighting was determined, if they had been true to Allah, by fulfilling their word, it would have been better for them. So would you perhaps if you turned away, cause corruption on earth and sever your ties of relationship. So this shows us that when a person turns away from the command of a law, and they cause corruption, then they actually severed ties of relationship, and severing ties of relationship. And this is something very, very serious. Remember that there are two two types of rain, two types of blood types. One is that General, you know, relationship between all human

01:03:25--> 01:04:03

beings, the fact that we're all children of Adam, and specifically, we are closer to those who believe. So it is important that we, you know, take care of one another, we are kind and respectful. And this is a sign of faith, that we help one another, that we don't hurt them, but rather we are a source of peace for one another. And then secondly, there's that hos that specific relationship, which Allah subhanaw taala has created between you and the people who are closest to you through blood. And this includes both paternal and maternal relationships. So it is necessary that we are good to them, we spend on them, we look out for them, we are there for one another, and the person

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

who severs ties of kinship, then remember that Allah subhanaw taala will cut off from him. This is a warning that we have been given in Hades. And there is great harms that a person suffers in this life and the next life because of severing ties of kinship. We learned that a person who does this will suffer sooner or later in this life, meaning even before they die, they will suffer the consequences of severing ties of kinship. So we should make the elbow from this. Remember that every Muslim was forgiven when deeds are presented during the week, Mondays and Thursdays except for who?

01:04:40--> 01:05:00

Except for people who who have abandoned one another, right. And part of abandoning one another is to is to sever ties of kinship. So it is not permissible for us to sever ties of kinship. You we are allowed to be angry with each other, but the maximum duration for that is

01:05:00--> 01:05:41

Three days, after three days you must force yourself to get back in touch and to mend the relationship. It doesn't mean you have to be buddy, buddy with everybody. But it means that you have to be, at least on speaking terms and your heart should be clean. Those who do so are the ones that Allah has cursed, who those who spread corruption in the earth and several relationships are cursed by Allah. So he has deafened them and blinded their vision. And this is why people who cut off from their relatives, even when they're advised to do something good, they come up with excuses and arguments falaya to the balloon Al Quran, Allah to be up falou How do they not reflect upon the

01:05:41--> 01:06:31

Quran? Or are there locks upon their hearts? You see, when a lock is put on a door, that means that the door is closed, that means no one can go inside, and nothing can come outside. So the heart Remember, it needs to be opened, so that Amen, faith and Quran can enter. So we must put aside our biases, our preconceived notions, our assumptions about the Quran, or about things in life. Allow the Quran to enter your heart and when you will allow the Quran to enter your heart. Only then will you heal. Only then will you overcome your past grievances. You see, we are so stuck in our past, we're not able to move on from you know how our parents said something to us 20 years ago, right? Or

01:06:31--> 01:07:15

how they did something 15 years ago, and we don't allow ourselves to heal. It's like we are keeping those, you know, wounds inside and we have put locks on our hearts. So unlock your heart. Let the Quran enter. accept what the Quran is telling you. Try it, you know, try it and allow yourself to heal. When Allah subhanaw taala tells us to do exam to our parents. What do you think there's a lot not know that parents are imperfect? What do you think there's a lost part or not know that parents make mistakes when raising their children. Allah knows that. Of course he knows that. But still he has told us not once in the Quran, but repeatedly in the Quran to be good towards our parents. Why?

01:07:15--> 01:08:01

Because our healing will come when we will be good to our parents. And if you stay distant from your parents, and you stay on bad terms, you will never heal. You can pretend like you're better off, but you're actually not better off because that there's that aching pain inside, which you can try to put away but it will keep coming up again and again. And again. You can try to suppress it, but it will kill you. It will hurt you it will eat you up from inside. So allow the Quran to enter your heart. Don't lock your heart up. And locking your heart up means that you don't accept the teachings of the Quran. So whatever our last thought is telling us in the Quran accepted, follow it, try it

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

and this is what will heal you. This is what will improve your condition. And this will allow you to unlock your full potential. remember Allah subhanaw taala has given you a lot of ability, he has put a lot of good in you. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam explained that people are like marauding, like like caves like mines, meaning there's so much good that's hiding inside. But that good is not going to come out until and unless you benefit from the Quran. Allow the Quran to improve your life and see how beautiful Your life will become. But we unfortunately hold on to our wrong ways. You know, for example, our wrong attachments to certain individuals we know that we shouldn't be you know,

01:08:45--> 01:09:29

maintaining a certain long relationship but we keep falling back into the same pattern. Why? Because we're afraid we'll never marry the person that we love. And then what happens? We deprive ourselves, follow the Quran, and Allah subhanaw taala will not deprive you. So your full potential will only be realized when you follow the Quran. don't deprive yourself, don't lock yourself up you have a treasure within unlock it with the Quran. Indeed, those who reverted back to disbelief after guidance had become clear to them, shame upon entice them and prolonged hope for them. That is because they said to those who disliked what Allah sent down, we will obey you in part of the

01:09:29--> 01:10:00

matter. These were the hypocrites. And you see they disliked what Allah sent down. And Allah knows what they conceal that how will it be When the angels take them in death, striking their faces and their backs? That is because they followed what angered Allah and disliked what earns his pleasure. So he rendered worthless their deeds or do those in whose hearts as disease think that Allah would never expose their feelings of hatred. Allah will expose that and if we withhold, we could show them

01:10:00--> 01:10:38

To you, and you would know them by their mark, but you will surely know them by the tone of their speech and Allah knows your deeds. So the fact is that we can try to pretend before people, but Allah subhanaw taala knows who we are and what we are, and we will surely test you until we make evident those who strive among you for the cause of Allah and the patient, and we will test your affairs, meaning we will not leave you untested and untried. Indeed, those who disbelieved and diverted people from the path of Allah and oppose the messenger after guidance had become clear to them. Never will they harm Allah at all, and he will render worthless their deeds, they will never

01:10:38--> 01:11:14

be successful. Will you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the messenger and do not invalidate your deeds when October cleaner Armada comb? This is such a frightening verse, believers are being addressed that all believers obey, align the messenger and do not waste your own deeds. How is it that a person destroys their own hard work by committing disbelief after a man or by following up their good deeds with sins, or by showing off, or by leaving their good deeds halfway unfinished by quitting, and also

01:11:15--> 01:11:57

also bitter meaning, following innovation, because such deeds are rejected. All of that effort will be useless. Indeed, those who disbelieved and diverted people from the path of Allah and then died while they were disbelievers. Never will ALLAH forgive them. So do not weaken and call for peace while your superior and allies with you and will never deprive you of the reward of your deeds. This worldly life is only amusement and diversion. And if you believe in fear Allah, He will give you your rewards and not ask you for your properties. If he should ask you for them and press you meaning of if Allah compelled you obligated on you that you spend everything in his way, what would

01:11:57--> 01:12:37

you do, you would withhold, and he would expose your unwillingness. So the fact is that Allah subhanaw taala has only commanded us what is realistic, what is possible, what is easy. So let us do that happily, here you are those invited to spend in the cause of Allah. But among you are those who withhold out of greed. And whoever withholds only withholds benefit from himself. Any, when you don't spend in the way of a lie, you're actually depriving yourself and allies the free of need, while you are the needy, you need the reward in the hereafter allows religion doesn't need your financial contribution. And if you turn away, he will replace you with another people, then they

01:12:37--> 01:13:19

will not be the likes of you, Allahu Akbar. You see, giving one's wealth in the way of Allah is certainly a noble deed, the person who spends in worldly causes, but does not spend in Allah's way, then such a person is actually stingy. They're actually stingy. And we need to think about it. How much do we spend on our food? Just think about it, how much do we spend an hour if thought any, we want luxurious of thought every day, right? So we will spend on expensive ingredients, because we want to try new recipes now that we're home, and we're trying one thing after the other soprano love, and when it comes to spending just $1 a day in the way of a lovely become stingy over there.

01:13:20--> 01:14:04

Really, any how much is our grocery bill, and how much is our charitable contribution this month, you know, remind yourself that we're supposed to be fasting, the you know, our attention is supposed to be less when it comes to, you know, on eating on food. And greater attention should be on worship. So let's cut down a little bit on our grocery bill. And let us spend more in the way of Allah. Again, look into what you have, and see what you can give, and try to be that extra generous now, and especially sign up for recurring donations, so that you don't miss out giving, giving charity on any day or any night. And I would encourage you that, for example, sign up for a

01:14:04--> 01:14:49

recurring donation for one religious cause, you know, for a religious Institute. Why? Because masajid religious Institute's they need financial help right now. Because, you know, while your businesses, they may be you know, all of us are concerned about our financial, you know, condition, but we need our massage to run we need our religious institutions to be there because who's going to teach us and our children in the future. And Allah subhanaw taala he doesn't need us because he can replace us with someone else. So if we are able to contribute, then this is our privilege. This is something that is benefiting us, not anybody else, this is going to benefit us. And at the same

01:14:49--> 01:15:00

time, because it's the month of Ramadan, also spend on those who are hungry, those were in need, and there's so many great causes, you know, so every single day

01:15:00--> 01:15:45

every single night give something for that also. And yes you're giving the cat but in addition to the cat give extra sidecar to because for men komiya Bahama Yamaha Alfa, Romeo Bahadur nuptse, don't deprive yourself. don't deprive yourself because imagine if you give sadaqa on on later to look harder than it is as if you give sadaqa For how long? 4000 years, imagine the reward. So imagine the regret on the Day of Judgment, though I wish I had spent that money on such and such cause instead of ordering pizza that night, so panela any we pay for Netflix, we play for our memberships we planned for, you know, we paid for so many things, why can we not pay for, you know, a course fees?

01:15:45--> 01:16:36

Why can we not pay for something that will in fact, benefit us, not just right now, but forever for eternity. And if you turn away, he will replace you with another people than they will not be the likes of you. So the fact is, that if we don't work, if we don't strive, if we don't contribute, Allah will bring in other people. Allah doesn't need us. So let us not. So let us not be stingy with ourselves over here. So little fat. So little fat is an amazing surah it's, it's a gift. Fat means victory. And this surah was given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right after the Treaty of her baby, which was actually a very difficult experience for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and

01:16:36--> 01:17:24

the Muslims. They had gone to make Ramona in the sixth year of hedgerow, and the mosquito prevented them from entering Makkah from entering a mystical harem. Imagine they went all the way and they weren't allowed to enter. And so what happened is that the machine of Makkah, they instead agreed to peace negotiations, so they made a peace treaty. And that peace treaty was apparently not in the favor of the Muslims at all, in all of the stipulations seem to be unfavorable for the Muslims. And a lot of the Muslims were unhappy with the terms of that treaty, including urban Cotabato de la Mourinho. However, Allah subhanaw taala called this a victory. So we learned that after the Prophet

01:17:24--> 01:18:10

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam slaughtered the the sacrificial animals, meaning the Muslims exited the state of your hand, and they headed back to Medina. Allah subhanaw taala revealed this sutra calling the Treaty of her they via a manifest victory and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, look at the Zealot area to hear I have boo la Yamuna dunya Jumeirah that certainly Evers has been revealed to me which is more beloved to me than the entire world. And what is this verse? Enough Athena like a fat ham Rubina? Indeed, we have given you a clear conquest. And this clear conquest is actually the Treaty of Abia, which was apparently a defeat for the Muslims, because the Muslims were

01:18:10--> 01:18:52

neither able to perform Roma at that time, nor were the conditions of the treaty in their favor. But still Allah subhanaw taala called that a victory. Our beloved Missouri and other companions would say that you consider the conquest of Makkah to be unfettered, while to us unfettered is actually the Treaty of her they be your mama Zhu Li said that there was no conquest greater than her they be, because the mustachian finally made peace with the Muslims. And this allowed many people to finally interact with the Muslims and listen to the Quran. And within the next three years, many, many people embraced Islam. So this is a proof that when you avoid conflict for the sake of Allah, and

01:18:52--> 01:19:41

you humble yourself for the sake of Allah, that Allah will certainly honor you. This is a proof that when you accept with real Bob with happiness with contentment, what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed that Allah subhanaw taala will not fail you He will not give you failure rather he will bring you success because a lot of times good time you know, good opportunities are coming our way how through hardships in you have to go through that painful step in order to reap the benefits. So this is why don't resent the hardships in life. consider them to be a factor, a conquest evictory Leo ferulic Allahu methylcobalamin them become a matter of harm, that Allah may forgive for you what proceeded

01:19:41--> 01:19:59

of your sin and what will follow and complete his favor upon you and guide you to a straight path soprano law as a result of this great patience. Look at the reward that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam got, which is complete forgiveness and perfection of Allah's blessing and complete guidance.

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

Straight Path. And even though the Prophet sallallahu radiocentre was forgiven for all of us for all of his shortcomings, yet he strove and he exerted a great deal in worship. Imagine if we were told that all of your sins are forgiven, what would we do? We would just sit back and perhaps indulgent a few wrong things as the fiddle love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stood in prayer for so long, and this is voluntary prayer, that his feet swelled up and I showed a lot more and had asked him that why, why, why did you do that? When Allah has forgiven all your sins, and she mentioned this one Allah has forgiven for you might have put them in lumpy kawamata a home and the

01:20:42--> 01:21:22

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If Allah were hibou, an akuna, then shockula should I not like to be a grateful servant? So remember, one is to worship Allah from a place of fear, and that is fine, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed out of love and gratitude, and that is a higher degree. You know, what is that you do your Salah, because you're like, if I don't pray, then I'll be punished. And you just do it for the sake of doing it. Right. But the other is that you do it with happiness, with love with gratitude that he or Allah, you gave me trophies. Yeah, Allah, you gave me this and you gave me that. Yeah, Allah, you are so generous, you are so kind. I love you, my

01:21:22--> 01:22:06

lord. And with that feeling you pray, that prayer will be far more enjoyable. And And remember, that your reward for prayer for worship is in proportion to the you know, the effort that you exert, and how you feel in that prayer in that worship way on soda, Cola, hoonah, Sonia Aziza, and that Allah may aid you with a mighty victory. It is he who sent down tranquility, into the hearts of the believers, that they would increase in faith along with their present faith, and to Allah belong the soldiers of the heavens and the earth. And that And ever is Allah knowing and wise. So we see that the Sahaba experienced sakeena tranquility. In her they be how that even though it was such a tense

01:22:06--> 01:22:44

moment, where people could have resolved, you know, could have turned to a physical, you know, a violent conflict that was very much inevitable. But still, they experienced Sakina. So they were able to put their trust in Allah and believe in his promise and be patient over his decree, they were able to have composure, so their fear was relieved and their sadness was comforted. So because of Sakina they were dignified in their manner, and they were wise in their actions. So we learned that the companions asked the Prophet sallallahu Runyan sentimental messenger of Allah, we know what will happen to you now, because Allah has said Leah felucca, love them at the moment Danby cometa

01:22:44--> 01:22:55

aha, but for my infrared Obinna, what about us? So let's print out a reveal the following verse, and that he may admit the believing men and the believing women to gardens.

01:22:57--> 01:23:39

And that he may admit the believing men and the believing women to gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide there eternally and removed from them their misdeeds And ever is that in the sight of Allah agreed attainment. So remember the great the real success is of the Hereafter, and that he may punish the hypocrite men and hypocrite women and the polytheist men and the policies to women, those who assume about Allah and assumption of evil nature upon them as a misfortune of evil nature, and Allah has become angry with them, and has cursed them and prepared for them hell and evil it is as a destination and to Allah belong the soldiers of the heavens and the earth And ever is Allah Exalted

01:23:39--> 01:24:25

in Might and Wise, or prophet, indeed, we have sent you as a witness and the bringer of good tidings and a warner, that you people may believe in Allah and His Messenger, and honor Him, and respect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and exalt Allah morning and afternoon. So our job is to believe in Allah and in His Messenger, and to also honor the messenger to zero who, and remember Thorazine is to help and cooperate, which is not possible without honoring the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So to zero who basically means obey Him, and then to work through the key is to respect with to respect someone, which is to believe in their dignity and their honor, and

01:24:25--> 01:24:59

then verbally express that to so we should also show that respect. When we talk about the Prophet sallallahu early he was setting them so obey Him, and then also show respect to him. When especially when you're talking about him. And sometimes we think that you know, believing in the Prophet sallallahu earliest in the means that every time you mentioned him you say on Habib, and that you you know saying something in his praise. That is not all that is not the only way of showing respect to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, Allah subhanaw taala has told us over here to a zero to a poo

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

Which is through obedience and through other obedience meaning follow his comments, follow his Sunnah. That is how you show respect to him. That is how you honor Him. And then when you take his name, mentioned his name properly, with respect, and then you glorify Allah, morning and evening. Indeed those who, indeed those who pledge allegiance to you, they're actually pledging allegiance to Allah, the hand of Allah is over their hands. So he who breaks his word only breaks it to the detriment of himself. And he who fulfills that which He has promised Allah, He will give him a great reward. Those who remain behind of the Bedouins will say to you, our properties and our families

01:25:43--> 01:26:22

occupied so ask forgiveness for us. We were so busy at home, you know, children, and housework too busy, so make make door offer us they say with their tongues what is not within their hearts, say, then who could prevent a lot at all, if he intended for you harm, or intended for you benefit. Any of these are all excuses, rather ever is Allah with what you do acquainted, but you thought that the messenger the believers would never return to their families. This is what they thought when the Prophet sallallaahu already said it was going for Obama. They thought that you know what, they're going in the lion's den, they'll never survive. This is what they were hoping for ever. And that was

01:26:22--> 01:26:58

made pleasing in your hearts and you assumed an assumption of evil and became a people ruined. And whoever has not believed in Allah and His Messenger, that indeed we have prepared for the disbelievers a blaze and to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He forgives whom He wills and punishes whom He wills and ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. Those who remain behind will say when you set out toward the war booty to take it meaning another expedition, they will say let us follow you meeting let us accompany you so that we can also have a share of the benefits. They wish to change the words of Allah say never Will you follow us. Thus did Allah say

01:26:58--> 01:27:36

before and this shows us that when we deliberately stay back from certain opportunities that Allah gives us, then we are deprived in the future, we are not given the same opportunities again. So they will say rather you envious but in fact, they were not understanding except a little say to those who remain behind of the Bedouins, you will be called to face the people of great military might, you may fight them or they will submit so if you obey Allah will give you a good reward. But if you turn away as you turned away before, He will punish you with a painful punishment. There is not upon the blind any guilt, or upon blame any guilt, or upon the ill any guilt for remaining behind,

01:27:36--> 01:28:13

meaning someone who has a genuine excuse Allah, Allah knows that and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, he will admit him to gardens beneath which rivers flow, but whoever turns away, He will punish him with a painful punishment. law. The law certainly was a law please, with the believers, when they pledged allegiance to you under the tree. This was at her they be when it was Manuel de la Horne who went to Makkah to negotiate and he did not return, then the Muslims thought that respond will do a lot more and who had been killed. They were not prepared for battle, but they still give their pledge to the prophets of Allah who were to us and know that we will fight if needed, we will

01:28:13--> 01:28:52

defend ourselves if needed. And this was the subpoena that Allah subhanaw taala sent upon them, and he knew what was in their hearts. So he sent down tranquility upon them and rewarded them with an imminent conquest and much war booty which they will take forever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise, Allah has promised too much booty that you will take in the future, and has hastened for you this victory in withheld the hands of people from you, that it may be assigned for the believers, and that he may guide you to a straight path. And he promises other victories that you were so far unable to realize which Allah had already accomplished And ever is Allah over all things competent.

01:28:52--> 01:29:33

And if those Moroccans who disbelieve had fought you at her davia, they would have turned their backs in flight, then they would not find a protector or helper. This is the established way of a law which has occurred before and never will you find in the way of a law any change. And it is he who withheld their hands from you and your hands from them within the area of Makkah after he caused you to overcome them, and ever is Allah of what you do, seeing. So Pamela, so many benefits are mentioned over here. The benefits that came about because of the Treaty of her they be. And it is also made clear that if Alice punctata wanted, he could have let the war happen, and that would only

01:29:33--> 01:30:00

cause the machine to suffer. But Allah subhanaw taala let this so happened, peace happened because through this much better benefits were brought to the Muslims. They are the ones who disbelieved and obstructed you from a muscular how long while the offering was prevented from reaching its place of sacrifice. And if not for believing men and believing women whom you did not know living in Makkah, then you might trample them and they would befall you because of them dishonor without your

01:30:00--> 01:30:40

Knowledge, then you would have been permitted to enter Makkah and unless punctata would have allowed you to fight, but alas, Pousada did not in order to protect them, this was so that Allah might admit to His mercy whom he will, if they had been, if they had been apart from them, we would have punished those who disbelieved among them with painful punishment. So the thing is that when things happen, we don't fully understand all that is happening behind the scenes, we only look at the surface, one aspect which is before us, and Allah subhanaw taala knows, you know, there is wisdom behind why Allah, Allah allows certain things to happen. We only see one side, only one aspect,

01:30:40--> 01:31:22

Allah subhanaw taala is protecting us from so many different from from so many different ways. So trust Allah subhanaw taala is decree and accept his decree and realize that it is the best, even if you don't fully comprehend it at the moment. When those who disbelieved had put into their hearts chauvinism, the chauvinism of the time of ignorance, and this was their pride and bias against the Muslims, you know, blind, you know, bias against the Muslims, because Never before had anyone been prevented from entering Makkah and performing armineh. This was the first time ever, but Allah sent down his tranquility upon His Messenger, and upon the believers and imposed upon them the word of

01:31:22--> 01:32:07

righteousness, and they were more deserving of it and worthy of it And ever is a law of all things knowing. So we see that those who have Taqwa than a lot of gives them the ability to speak with the core and those who have that, you know, Jamelia in them, bias in them, that they are prevented from even thinking rationally. And their efforts are useless. localizado Kala hula Sula, who will help certainly has Allah show to this messenger the vision in truth, you will surely enter almost to the harem. if Allah wills in safety, with your heads shaved and hair shortened, not fearing anyone, he knows what you did not know and has arranged before that a conquest near at hand, you intended only

01:32:07--> 01:32:53

Rama and Allah subhanaw taala wanted something much more and better for you. So yes, the Muslims did not get to perform or not the same year, but they got to perform another following year. And then through through that trip, they didn't just get aroma. They also got so many other benefits, and all of them are listed in the sutra. And when we study the sila, we see how much good came out of Saudi Arabia. So trust Allah subhanaw taala is plan who will lead the onset of Masuda who bill Buddha, it is he who sent His messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, to manifest it over all religion. And sufficient is Allah as witness, Muhammad Rasulullah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

01:32:53--> 01:33:36

sallam is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him, his companions are forceful against the disbelievers merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating and prayer seeking bounty from Allah and His pleasure. This was their outward appearance. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration. Meaning you can tell by their faces that they didn't sleep at night, you can tell that they were worshipping Allah, that is their description in the total. And their description in the Gospel in the gene is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them. So they grow firm and stand upon their stocks, delighting the sores so that Allah May enraged

01:33:36--> 01:34:17

by them, the disbelievers. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them, forgiveness and a great reward. So this is the description of the companions in the engine. And this isn't the book of Mark this it says, This is what the kingdom of God is like a man scatter seed on the ground, night and day whether he sleeps or gets up the seed sprouts and grows. Though he does not know how, all by itself the soil produces grain first the stock then the head, then the full colonel in the head. So the companions How are they? They were just a few at the beginning. You know, those who are afraid and look at how Allah subhanaw taala caused them to grow and increase and

01:34:17--> 01:34:59

now it's upon Allah. They were so strong that the machine agreed to make a peace treaty with them. They finally recognized them and accepted their force. Allahu Akbar, sutra 200 euro Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, all you who have believed, do not put yourselves before Allah and His messenger. This shows us that we should not give preference to what we think over what Allah and His Messenger have said, have commanded. We should neither contradict what Allah has said what His Messenger has said, nor should we pretend like we know better, do not say in contradiction to the Quran that I think otherwise I feel otherwise

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

But what about this? And what about that? No, our response should be severe. Now we're Aparna but fear Allah, Indeed Allah is hearing and knowing all you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or be loud to him in speech, like the loudness of some of you to others, meaning when you talk to him, be very respectful. And when you speak in his presence again, do not be loud. Why lest your deeds become worthless, while you perceive not think about it. If we're not allowed to raise our voice above the voice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then what will become of us if we raised our opinions, our analogies

01:35:44--> 01:36:25

over his clear statements. Remember, we are supposed to follow the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we are supposed to show utmost respect. And this includes showing respect when we visit his Masjid salallahu alayhi wasallam. So when you go to the loader, please, please do not raise your voice. Do not be rude over there and start fighting with one another and start running as if you were running in a mall, no show other even in the way that you walk. There were people once Who were you know, talking loudly in the masjid of the prophets of Allah who were to sell them. And Romano de la Martin would call them and he said, Where are you from? Who are you guys and they said,

01:36:25--> 01:37:04

We are visited. We are visitors in Medina. So he said, if you were from Medina, I would have punished you. I would have been very strict with you. Because we're not allowed to raise our voices in the midst of the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this also includes that when you are in a gathering of knowledge when you're sitting in the presence of a scholar, then be respectful, because the scholars are the heirs of the prophets. So instead of you know showing objections and and denying there should be a willingness to understand. So think good about Allah and His messenger. Indeed, those who lower their voices before the Messenger of Allah. They're the ones

01:37:04--> 01:37:31

whose hearts Allah has tested for righteousness for them is forgiveness and great reward. Meaning This is proof of taqwa sooner than hurt a lot teaches us good manners. Because remember, it is not just enough for us to do you know, to follow the rules, in terms of, you know, you know, related to rituals only. This is how we're supposed to fast this is, this is when we start fasting This is when we end our fast. Yes, this is important, but other

01:37:33--> 01:38:11

good manners. This is a major part of our religion and sooner to Allah teaches us other and other begins with knowing how to show proper to Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Indeed, those who call you from behind the chambers, most of them do not use reason. You see people, new visitors would come into Medina and they would stand outside the houses of the prophets of Allah who already have one of his apartments. And they would say, yeah, Mohammed, Elena, please come out. We used to talk to you a stuff that a lot so disrespectful. So Allah says most of the people do not use reason. And if they had been patient until you could come out to them, it would have been better

01:38:11--> 01:38:49

for them. But ally is Forgiving and Merciful. And this shows us that part of showing other to someone that you are seeking knowledge from is to not constantly nag and interrupt them. You know, when people would go to our bicycle dealer Mourinho to ask him something, they wouldn't even knock on his door, they would just sit outside and wait for him to come out, and then ask him, they wouldn't disturb him. But we think that if someone you know is acknowledged that we have full right to disturb them at any time, send message after message after message, harass them with one email after the other any when they're able to they will answer but we we you know, prioritize ourselves

01:38:49--> 01:38:50

and we forget about other

01:38:51--> 01:39:29

Will you who have believed if they're comes to you a disobedient one with information, investigate, lest you harm a people out of ignorance and become over what you have done regretful meaning only take action, after you have ascertained the news that has reached you. You see, there is a background to this where it's been almost a duck, they had embraced Islam and on a certain day, they were supposed to give there is a cap. So they sent a group of people to find out why the mystery of the prophets of Allah Who are you sending was delayed. Now the person the emissary of the Prophet sallallahu earthen he came from Medina. And as he was approached as he was approaching them, the

01:39:29--> 01:39:59

group of people who who was coming from but who mustered up towards Medina, he this was a group of them. So this man who was coming from Medina, he thought that these people are coming to fight me, because they were armed. And at that time, you have to be armed when traveling through the desert for your own safety. So he went and told the Prophet sallallahu, where to send them that they have rejected to give the car, they have rejected the cab, and they're coming to kill me. So basically, this meant that now let's prepare to fight against them. And as they were contemplating that they

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

The group of the booster they came to Medina and they came to inquire what had happened. So this shows us the dangers of misinformation, the dangers of reading in of acting on impulse. And it is very important that before taking any action, first of all, we find out what is it that we are dealing with, who is it that we're dealing with, before passing on any information, investigate, because a fantastic person, the person who is sinful, any his news is based on what doubt and assumption because he doesn't have that fear of Allah. And since don't pinch him that much. So he he, you know, blows things out of proportion. So it is very important that when you receive any

01:40:45--> 01:41:29

information, then investigate before taking action, and do not pass on everything you hear, because this could be very offensive near Allah subhanaw taala. And it also shows the lack of honesty, the lack of integrity in a person when he passes on everything that he hears, and there is severe punishment for this severe punishment for spreading lies. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said it was shown a man whose cheek was being torn stuff at a law, his cheek was being torn, with, you know, an iron hook from one side and then the other side, and then the back to the first side, and then back to the next day. And when he asked that, who was this man, he was told this is the person who used

01:41:29--> 01:42:08

to tell lies, and the people will report those lies on his authority to this spread all over the world. So be very, very careful. We're number one, and you should know that among you is the messenger of Allah. If you were to obey you in much of the matter, you would be in difficulty. But Allah has endeared to you the faith and has made it pleasing in your hearts, and has made hateful to you disbelief, defiance and disobedience. Those are their brightly guided, who are the rightly guided the people who have a man in their hearts, in whose hearts a man is adorned, because only then they will be able to follow the guidance. So we should also make Dora Allahumma Xie Na buzina,

01:42:08--> 01:42:48

te man was your unknown who that the dean or Allah adorn us with the adornment of faith, and make us rightly guided those who guide others. It is it is as bounty from Allah and favor, and Allah is Knowing and wise. And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against it, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the command of Allah. And if it returns, then make settlement between them and justice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly. So this shows us that when people are fighting, when Muslims are fighting one another, then don't just be a

01:42:48--> 01:43:28

bystander. Don't just be a silent observer. It's not just their problem. It's also your problem. So you better intervene and try to make peace between them. Because it is like charity that Allah subhanaw taala loves. This is one of the deeds that Allah tada likes, the believers are but brothers, so make settlement between your brothers. And it's unfortunate that when people are fighting, others will just sit back and enjoy the fight, they will enjoy the argument. And they will watch it escalate. In fact, they will add fuel to the fire so that it will escalate and fear Allah that you may receive mercy. So we see here that believers are supposed to be brothers, any, this is

01:43:28--> 01:44:10

the bond that Allah subhanaw taala has created within believers, that we should show respect to one another, we should watch out for one another. Even if we're not related, we still have to watch out for one another. Why because blood relations will suffer if the religion is not the same, but religious bonds will remain permanent in the hereafter. So remember that all believers are related by a man regardless of the difference in color, race, culture, background language. So this is why we should look out for each other. And what is it that causes conflict, those things are mentioned here now, or you who have believed, let not a people ridicule and other people, perhaps they may be

01:44:10--> 01:44:47

better than them, nor let women ridicule other women, perhaps they may be better than them, being the person whom you're making fun of thinking that they're less than you. Because oftentimes it is the faults and people that are picked on and that is how they're teased. So it's quite possible that those people are actually better than you. You know how these we learned it is sufficient evil for a man to look down on his Muslim brother. So when you begin to see faults and other people think that what if they have some really good qualities because of which Allah subhanaw taala likes them, because of which they're actually better than than me. And sometimes you see people feel insecure

01:44:47--> 01:44:59

about themselves or they have low self esteem, where they have some jealousy or some inferiority complex or superiority complex because of which they make fun of others, they begin to attack them and by that they feel better about themselves.

01:45:00--> 01:45:41

This is really reprehensible, the son of the righteous, they were extremely careful about making fun of others are must have been should have been said that if I see a man drinking milk directly from a goat other and I laugh at him, I fear that I will end up doing the same thing that he has done, meaning I will fall in the same behavior and then I will also be laughed at so Do not laugh at someone, even if they fall or, or fumble when they speak. You know, sometimes a person is speaking and they you know, they have a slip of the tongue and it sounds really funny. So we start laughing at them. And then Okay, it's, you know, natural to, you know, giggle a little at that time, but then

01:45:41--> 01:46:22

later on, tease them about it, and keep reminding them and keep, you know, teasing them about it. This is very reprehensible. We learned that once I shall do a marinara sauce, some people laughing at Mina. So she asked, What is it that's making you laugh? They said, Oh, this person stumbled, you know, on a rope and he was about to fall. And he was about to break his neck and he was about to lose his eyes. So she said don't laugh, because I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu earlier said I'm saying that if a Muslim runs a thorn, meaning gets pricked by a thorn or gets into trouble, more more, you know, worse than this, meaning whether something small or big happens to a believer,

01:46:22--> 01:47:05

there is a short for him a higher rank and his sins are obliterated. So panela here is a person who suffers in front of you. their sins just got erased, their ranks just got elevated and you are laughing at them. You are belittling them. How unfortunate when I tell Meizu, enforcer calm and Do not insult one another. Do not insult yourselves. Because the thing is that when you insult someone, you're actually insulting yourself, because now you're inviting that person to insult you in revenge. And when you insult a Muslim, what are you doing? You're actually insulting yourself because Muslims are supposed to be like one body, right? So don't pick on yourself and insult

01:47:05--> 01:47:46

yourself. Don't insult one another. And we learned that this is not the way of the believer lays a lot. minnow guitar on the believer is not done at all being someone who insults and do not even retaliate by insulting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if a man abuses and shames you for something which he finds in you, then you do not shame him for something which you find in Him, He will bear the evil consequences for it. So don't take revenge like this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said do not look for the faults of other people and do not spy on one another do not hate each other do not deserve to one another and all Allah slaves be brothers.

01:47:46--> 01:48:32

Remember, it's a major sin to attack the honor of a Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the most prevalent kind of interest is going to length in talking unjustly against a Muslims honor. How is this interest? This is interest This is river because people will attack someone's honor and reputation. Why to make their own name and reputation. Right? make a video insulting the character the religion of a reputable famous person and what will happen all of a sudden you will get 100 likes, you will get maybe 50 more followers, and now you will become more famous a stuff it'll lead this is so low, so cheap, when athanassios will be uncarved and do not

01:48:32--> 01:49:15

call each other by offensive nicknames. So remember, nicknames should be respectful. And if someone does not like to be called by a certain name or title, then please do not annoy them and do not hurt them by calling them with a name that they do not like. And if you do that, to tease them, it is said wretched is the name of disobedience after once faith meeting you have a man and this is what you do. This is wretched, this is horrible. So do not do any of these things in any way. Whether it is through the signals of the eye or through words or gestures or body language by writing rap video, any format and whoever does not repent, then it is those who are the wrongdoers so remember

01:49:15--> 01:49:56

the life of the believer, the wealth of the believer and the honor of the believer, all of that is sacred Will you have believed avoid much negative assumption? Indeed, some assumption is seen and we make assumptions very quickly over what someone has said. You know, we overanalyze, we overthink and then we form judgments. What is the one it is the wrong judgment? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said beware of suspicion for it as the worst of false tales, any it's completely baseless. It's a lie. And Abdullah said that the person who has had something stolen from him continues to be suspicious until he becomes worse than the thief Allahu Akbar yenni. The thief committed one sin by

01:49:56--> 01:49:59

committing theft but when you are assuming

01:50:00--> 01:50:12

about so many different people Oh, he stole Oh histo histo histo. And then you are acting on that false assumption, then guess what? Now you have earned more sin than the person who committed theft.

01:50:13--> 01:50:42

So be careful and avoid those matters which lead to bad assumption, and do not spy or backbite each other. Meaning do not pursue the faults of people and either search for them, nor talk about them, nor stalk people online, do not spy over them. No, nobody hired you to do that, to see what the mistakes of people are. And then to spread them. It's better if you mind your own business. And if you see a fault in someone inadvertently, then focus on

01:50:43--> 01:51:09

getting them. And if you're not in a position to correct them, then again, mind your own business. The thing is that the justices spying on one another, this actually corrupts people, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If you search for the faults of the people, you will corrupt them or you will nearly corrupt them. And this is a serious offense. We learned in ahaadeeth that if someone listens to the talk of some people who do not want him to listen to us eavesdropping

01:51:10--> 01:51:50

or they run away from him eager trying to get away from him, they don't want him to listen to their conversation. But he still manages to listen through different ways in these days upon a lot of people will hide, you know, cameras and things like that, then molten lead will be poured into his ears on the Day of Resurrection, molten lead in ears, a stuff that a lot. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? Do not back by because backbiting is like this, you would detest it, and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and merciful. The thing is that we take the matter of backbiting, very, very lightly, we don't consider it to be a sin. What is

01:51:50--> 01:52:27

backbiting? backbiting is that you talk about a person behind their back in a way, or something which is in them, but they dislike that you talk about it, meaning it is true, they have that fault. It is not an imaginary fault. It is a real fault in them, but they don't want you to talk about it, they will not like it, if they find out that you were talking about it. And this could be something about their body, about their manner about their work about their behavior, about their spouse, about their parents about their children, you know about the fact that they frown or this minor their, you know, their teeth, something like that. Whatever it is, I shall de la Mancha mentioned

01:52:27--> 01:53:10

the short height of someone. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you have just, you know, done the labor. And he This is also a labor. So commenting over people unnecessarily Oh, she's short or she's tall, she's this she's that he's This is that, or, you know, commenting on people all the time. This is like cannibalism. This is like cannibalism, eating a human being and eating a dead person. And that that person is who your own brother or stuff in a law. This is so graphic and so disgusting. Why? Because if you think about it, a person who is dead is not able to defend themselves, right. And just like that a person who is absent is not able to defend

01:53:10--> 01:53:51

themselves. And sometimes this happens that in a meeting, when someone is not there, we can lay all the blame on them, that you know what, this is their fault, I couldn't do my work because it's their fault, where and because they're not able to defend themselves we take advantage over there. So be careful, because when you misrepresent someone, you put you portray them as someone who is guilty of something that they have not done any This is worse than LIBOR. LIBOR is that you talk about something that is a fault which is in a person, and Bhutan is a slender that you accuse someone of something that is not even in them, that is worse. So just because a believer is absent, or is

01:53:51--> 01:54:22

unable to defend themselves, then it doesn't give you the right to attack them. If you attack them. It is like you're eating of their flesh, you're eating a dead human being that is your brother, whether you're the biller, even our boss for the long haul, and who explained that eating the dead is forbidden. It is detestable. And just like that liba is forbidden. It is detestable. Qatada said that just as you refuse to eat the meat of a dead human, you must refuse to eat the flesh of your living brother by backbiting him. So remember that backbiting

01:54:23--> 01:54:57

and the way of the righteous was that they would neither back by themselves nor would they allow people to back bite in front of them. So when someone you know back bites and other in front of you defend that believer don't participate in that. Our beloved Mr. Rude said that once we were with the prophets of Allah, what were you sending when a man got up and left and when he did? Then another man began speaking ill of him. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said clean your teeth, floss your teeth. So the man said why I didn't eat anything, the Prophet salallahu earnings and I said no doubt you ate the flesh of your brother, a stuffit Allah and remember that backbiting is not

01:54:57--> 01:55:00

just with words. It can also be with gestures, with

01:55:00--> 01:55:26

The hand the signal of the hand or the eye, or a smirk even wear something that we write or type. So, ly yellow to be able to come Barbara do not backbite I'm openhouse was once going with his companions when he came across a dead new. Imagine a dead animal the body had swelled up. He said by Allah, if a person eats this meat to his fill, that would be better for him than eating the flesh of a Muslim.

01:55:27--> 01:56:10

I challenge you go stand in front of the garbage can look inside and look at the rotting garbage and ask yourself what I eat this, what I eat this and if I will not eat this, then I better not eat the flesh of other Muslims by insulting them by backbiting them, Romano dilla Horton who said iya como de con nurse, but in the hood, or people beware of talking about people because this is a sickness. This is a disease where I lay comedically law and you must make Vicar of Allah you must talk about Allah for innaloo Shiva because that is a healing, that is a cure. So even when you're bitter about something, you're hurt because of what someone has said, then you know what, there is no benefit

01:56:10--> 01:56:48

that you're going to get by talking bad about them. What you're gonna, what is going to benefit you is when you remember Allah when you say what will fall will do me in Allah, Allah knows the truth. Well, you have believed, indeed we have created you from male and female, and maybe peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you, indeed, alized knowing and acquainted, so who is the one who refrains from the reprehensible things that are mentioned over here? The Veterans say we have believed say, you have not yet believed, but say instead, we have submitted for faith has not yet entered your hearts.

01:56:49--> 01:57:27

And if you obey Allah and His Messenger, he will not deprive you from your deeds of anything indeed Ally's Forgiving and Merciful. The believers are only the ones who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, and then doubt not, but strive with their properties of their lives and the cause of Allah. It is those who are the truthful, say what you acquaint Alo with your religion, while Allah knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And Allah is Knowing of all things. They consider it a favor to you that they have accepted Islam, say, do not consider your Islam a favor to me. Rather Allah has conferred favor upon you that he has guided you to the faith if you

01:57:27--> 01:57:44

should be truthful. Indeed, Allah knows the unseen aspects of the heavens and the earth and alive seeing of what you do sort of cough sort of cough is a sort of that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would recite on big occasions in large gatherings, he would recite it even in Juma

01:57:45--> 01:58:25

and in fudger, salah and read Salah, so the Sunnah needs to be revived. Men especially should try to memorize the sutra, at least the beginning of it. Why so that they can recite it when they're leading Salah right when they're leaving their family and salon even in budget, you can recite to the cop you're reviving a sinner when Allah gives you the trophy to give Jehovah again, recite some of the sutra revive this Sunnah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite the sort of so frequently on the member, that only a sham mentality has said that I memorized sort of off just by listening to it from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam what is the solar Bismillah R Rahman r

01:58:25--> 01:59:10

Rahim cough by the honored Koran Alma G. The Quran is honorable, but they wonder but they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves and the disbelievers saying this is an amazing thing. When we have died and have become dust, when we return to life, then that is a distant return. How's that possible? We know what the earth diminishes of them. And with us is a retaining record everything is recorded with the law, but they denied the truth when it came to them. So they are in a confused condition. So the fact is that when when people reject the truth than they are in confusion, have they not looked at the heaven above them, how he structured it and

01:59:10--> 01:59:52

adorned it and how it has no rifts and the earth. We spread it out and cast there and firmly set mountains and made grow there in something of every beautiful kind, giving insight and a reminder for every servant who turns to Allah and we have sent down bless it rain from the sky. Remember, rain has Baraka in it. It is my mubaraka so even our basketball de la Mourinho whatever it would rain he would order his servant to have his quotes put out for him because he would go outside and get wet and then immediately change and this is something that we should also do that when it rains. Allow the rain to fall on you because it is my unbroken it is blessing water, but then don't stay

01:59:52--> 02:00:00

wet. Go change immediately. For unbuttoned OBE Jeanette in and made grow there by gardens and grain from

02:00:00--> 02:00:42

The harvest and lofty palm trees having fruit arranged in layers as provision for the servants, and we have given life thereby to a dead land. Thus is the resurrection. The people have no denied before them and the companions of the well and smooth and odd and fit our own and the brothers of Luke and the companions of the thicket, and the people of towbar all denied the messengers. So my threat was justly fulfilled. Did we fail in the first creation? Did Allah get tired No way, but they are in confusion over a new creation, meaning they think allies that they think that it is difficult for a lot to recreate people. Why would it be difficult when he created the first creation, and we

02:00:42--> 02:01:27

have already created men and know what his soul whispers to him and we are closer to him than his jugular vein. We are closer to him than his jugular vein. Remember that Allah subhanaw taala is well aware of our thoughts, all those connections that are happening in your brain. And we cannot even keep track of that, right? It's mind boggling to even think about the millions of connections that are happening in your brain within a single second, Allahu Akbar. Any thought that crosses your head, Allah, Allah knows about it. No one knows us as well as Allah subhanaw taala does. And Allah subhanaw taala has appointed angels to record our deeds. He doesn't need to do that. But these

02:01:27--> 02:01:59

angels are appointed. Why? Because the records are being made as evidence against us. This is why the Pilla hazlemere quanta fear Allah, no matter where you are, when the two receivers receive seated on the right and on the left, meaning these are the two angels. Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared to record. So every grep every gasp and every word, even if backbiting any it is being recorded.

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

We are constantly under surveillance, we are being watched. So have regard for that. And angels are recording which Sacra tool multiball help and the intoxication of death will bring the truth meaning the certain reality of death of every human being, it will come that is what you were trying to avoid. Meaning all your life you were trying to run away from death, but here it is, and look at the word jet, this is past tense, because it shows that death is near and it is certain and we see cyclotron mount because death is painful. This is why we should make Dora a level menarini or the Illuminati mode was a karate mode or Allah helped me against the difficulties the pangs of death,

02:02:45--> 02:03:24

and the horn will be blown. That is the day of carrying out the threat and every soul will come with it. A driver and a witness be the angels will be right there. As soon as a person comes out of his grave he will not be able to escape. One Angel will drive him another angel will be a witness against him. It will be said you were certainly in a mindfulness of this and we removed from you your cover. So your sight this day is sharp meaning now you see the news of lay before you now the veil of the unseen has been removed and his companion the angel will say this record is what is with me prepared. So there is an angel to testify. And now there is also written evidence of all that you

02:03:24--> 02:04:09

have done. Allah will say, throw into hell. Every obstinate, disbeliever preventer of good monera will hate you see selfish, stingy aggressor and doubter who made us equal with Allah another day t then throw him into the severe punishment, his devil companion will say, Our Lord, I did not make him transgress I didn't force him, but he himself was an extreme error, a love will say do not dispute before me, while I had already presented to you the warning, the word will not be changed with me and never will I be unjust to the servants. You see, today, we we easily justify a wrong saying Oh, check on affected me. I mean, on the day of life, which I will not take any

02:04:09--> 02:04:25

responsibility. So don't blame shaitan and then settle with that. Okay. shikon put that was was a breach upon didn't force you. You chose your words and your behaviors take responsibility so that you can seek forgiveness and seek forgiveness right the wrong

02:04:26--> 02:04:59

Yamanaka Lulu jahannam hallym talathi waterpolo helmy muzzin on the day we will say to hell have you been filled and it will say Are there some more stuff in a law so many people will end up in heaven May Allah protect us and paradise will be brought near to the righteous not far it will be so this is what you were promised for every a web heavy for every returner to Allah and keeper of his covenant who is a web. A web is the person who glorifies and praises

02:05:00--> 02:05:42

Allah repeatedly. And a web is the person who remembers a lot in private one alone, and he remembers his sins and seeks forgiveness. And also you remember the love and he is amongst people. He thinks of Allah. And he seeks forgiveness and every gathering. So a web is basically the person who keeps turning back to Allah with obedience with repentance with his stick fall. And this is a habit that we need to develop. A web is a person who keeps turning back to Allah with worship. And this is why Sonata Doha is called Salatu a wellbeing, because in the morning at that time, there is no particular prayer that has been the end there is no obligatory prayer, right? But it is only a

02:05:42--> 02:05:48

person who likes to turn back to Allah, who will pray at that time also between fudger and lower because it's a long duration.

02:05:49--> 02:06:34

And her feel, her feel is the person who diligently guards his tongue, his thoughts, his actions, his worship, who feared the Most Merciful, unseen, and came with the heart returning in repentance, and turn it in peace. This is the day of eternity, Allahu Akbar. They will have whatever they wish they're in and with us is more even more. And what is that? Seeing a law? Allah approval? And how many a generation before them did we destroy? Who were greater than them in striking power and had explored throughout the lens? They traveled far and wide? Is there any place of escape? Is there any place in the world you can run to, so that you can save yourself from a less punishment? Indeed, and

02:06:34--> 02:07:14

that is a reminder for whoever has a heart or who listens while he is present. So this shows us that we should be present in our heart attentive, when we're listening to the Quran, only then will will we be able to derive benefit and we did certainly create the heavens and earth and what is between them in six days and they're touched us no weariness, Allah did not get tired. phosphate so be patient over what they say. and exalt Allah with praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before it's setting Subbu is mentioned and the speed is mentioned. This shows us that the way you get some of the way you practice patience and the way that you increase in your patience when

02:07:14--> 02:07:59

you're dealing with difficulties in life is by making the speed by glorifying a lot in the morning and in the evening. Because the speed strengthens your heart and input and in part of the night exalt Him and after prostration so in the night we yes we pray Salah, meaning clamor lay but we should also make this be don't just sit the panel a bit our limbs panel to be Arline such then record that is good.

And listen. On the day when the caller will call out from

02:07:59--> 02:08:46

a place that is near the day they will hear the blast of the horn and truth that is the day of emergence from the graves. Indeed, it is we who give life and cause death, and to us is the destination on the day the earth breaks away from them, and they emerge rapidly. That is a gathering easy for us. We are most knowing of what they say. And you are not over them a tyrant, meaning you are not to compel people to believe, but remind by the Koran, whoever fears my threat, similar to that yet Bismillahirrahmanirrahim by those wings, scattering dust dispersing windstorms, and those clouds carrying a load of water, and those ships sailing with ease, Allahu Akbar, and those angels

02:08:47--> 02:09:09

appropriating each matter. In number two, I do not know sardick. Indeed, what you were promised is true. Meaning the Day of Judgment is certain. So take lesson from the blowing wind and the falling rain that the Lord at whose command all of this is happening. The day of judgment will also happen at his command. You don't see the wind, but you feel its effect.

02:09:10--> 02:09:50

Just like that. You don't know when the hour is coming, but your life has a proof that there is going to be a Recompense. And the one who is able to do these amazing things creates such amazing phenomenon. Why would it be hard for him to resurrect the dead? And indeed the recompense is to occur by the heaven containing pathways indeed, you are in different speech mean people have different opinions about the Day of Judgment, diluted away from the Quran is He who is diluted destroyed are the faults of fires mean those who are just guessing, who are within a flood of confusion and he blessed they don't come out of their ignorance towards knowledge. They like to stay

02:09:50--> 02:10:00

in their ignorance. They ask when is the Day of Recompense, they should actually be asking about what they need to do for it, not when it is going to be

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

It is the day they will be tormented over the fire and will be told taste your torment. This is that for which you were impatient.

02:10:44--> 02:11:24

of the night, not to chitchat or to watch movies, but they used to sleep a little in the night in order to worship Allah, meaning at a time when the body desires comfort and rest.

02:11:24--> 02:12:00

taala. So remember, in general, we were supposed to sleep in the night, and then also pray in the night, not that we stay up all night long. But in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, the Prophet salallahu already sent him his way was slightly different. I shall deliver more on her said that with the start of the last 10 days of Ramadan, the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam used to tighten his waist belt.

So this is something that that we need to observe also will be as howdy homea, stuffy, rude. And in the hours before dawn, they would ask forgiveness

02:12:00--> 02:12:05

because at this time Allah invites people Is there anyone who will seek forgiveness from me so that I will forgive him
