Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
Arata Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim furbish La Jolla Saudi were silly emri workflow loksatta melissani yufka who Cali Allah My dear Colby was sadly Sani was roots of him with the Colby Armenia bill Amin.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it was the hallway in recite the two bright lights, meaning pseudoscalar bacara and sort of earlier in Ron, he also said the alemu learned sort of Baccarat and sort of earlier Ron. So these sutras remember that they are lights, they are a source of enlightenment, a source of light for those who seek Allah subhanaw taala because these sources provide not only knowledge that strengthens our Eman, proofs and evidences that strengthen our relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. But the surahs also offer a lot of guidance and instruction with regards to things that we should be doing, the way that we should be worshipping Allah subhanaw
taala, in order to seek His approval. Now, remember that many verses of the sooner they were revealed when a delegation of Christians had come to visit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in Medina, and these people had come from the drawn and when they insisted upon their belief in the divinity of reciting his Sunnah when they insisted to believe that Reese are his sin was a son of God suffered a lot. Then these verses were revealed, clarifying the truth of rissalah his Salah, that Who is he? How was he born? How come he was born only of a mother. And why is it that Allah subhanaw taala created him in that particular way? So here we are given the background of SRT he's
set up. So inshallah we will begin our lesson today from verse number 33. of sort of earlier on Allah Subhana. Allah says in Allah has luffa Adama, we're no han what Allah Ibrahima what Allah iwana Allah Allah Allah amin, Indeed, Allah chose Adam and knew. And the family of Ibrahim and the family of Iran over the world's is tougher is to select the best portion of something. It is to select the purest and the clearest part of something. Allah subhanaw taala has many slaves, all people belong to Allah. But not all people are the same. Some are pure than others. So Allah subhanaw taala select them over others exclusively for certain purposes. So here we learn that Allah
subhanaw taala chose Adam or as salaam, no la Salaam, the household of Ibrahim alayhis salam and the household of Imran. He chose all of them over the people of the world's meaning he chose them for his religion by giving them virtues over the people of their time by giving them Prophethood First of all, we see how Allah subhanaw taala chose Adam earliest. Allah created him with his hand. Allah subhanaw taala commanded the angels to prostrate to him, and Allah subhanaw taala tested at the Marley's salon by placing him in the garden. And when add the word to his Salah made the mistake of eating the fruit of the tree. He could follow the example of a police but he did not he turned back
to Allah subhanaw taala in repentance, so Allah subhanaw taala chose him into the Taha I 122. Allah is proud Allah says so
Much taba hora boo fatawa la he will have other than his Lord chose him and turn to Him in forgiveness and guided him. Allah subhanaw taala chose knew how to SLM by making him the first messenger and avenging the way that his people treated him. So all but those who believed in him were removed from the face of the earth. So new highlight his salon became the second Adam, the second father of humanity. And then we see a last parameter chose the household the Isle of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam, himself was chosen as the leader of mankind and his children. Also his family was chosen. His marine early his Salaam is how Karla has set out. So all
of the prophets after Ibrahim or his sin, were from his lineage, including the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the messenger before him. He sorry, his Sunnah was also from the descendants of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. And then we see here that Allah subhanaw taala, chose the household of Iran, or Iran. Now who was Iran, this is referring to the father of medium who was the mother of restarting his center. So remember that he sarena his salon being the closest messenger to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in the sense that there was no other prophet or messenger between them. Recently his Salaam was from Al Imran, the family of Iran. So here, the story of the
family of Iran is mentioned how Allah subhanaw taala chose them. The re uttam Babu Hummingbird descendants, some of them from others, meaning these people are all from one family. They are all human. And even though they did not live at the same time, they are like one family house supporters of one another same goals same cause there were same in their religion in their manners in their goodness in their etiquette. Willa who Sameera on alim and Allah is hearing and knowing meaning Allah subhanaw taala hears the prayers of his slaves, he knows the condition of their hearts. He knows the efforts and he knows the efforts that his slaves put in and also the circumstances that
his slaves are in. So now the story of how the family of Iran was chosen. If Carla team Roger imraan rugby in Nina though to laka Murphy button he mentioned when the wife of Iran said, What did she say, My Lord, indeed I have pledged to you. What is in my womb. More Hello, Ron consecrated for your service for the Hubble money. So accept this for me. In NACA, enter Samir al Eileen, indeed you are the hearing the knowing. Now this lady, the wife of Iran, it is said that her name was Hannah, or n. And she made it through Allah to Allah subhanaw taala. In general, when we think about the dog, we associate the concept of doll with, you know, asking Allah subhanaw taala for things that we desire.
We think that Dora is all about asking, asking for stuff. But here we see that she is actually offering something that she desires to who to Allah subhanaw taala and then she's asking for acceptance. What is she offering? She is pledging her child for a love. Her child is not even born yet. She is expecting a child. And she says that this child is in Nina doll to laka Murphy balcony that Oh my Lord, I am pledging my child to you. And this child of mine will be more Helen mohammadu means someone who has been freed up. So how is it that she is freeing her child? She is basically saying that my child will be liberated from worldly obligations, liberated from worldly chores and
dedicated purely for the worship of Allah. She's saying that her child will be liberated from having to serve her. Meaning she does not want her child to serve her. The mother she wants her child to be dedicated to serve the religion of Allah to be at the house of at the house of God at baitul marketers so she says in The Nether to like a Murphy botany mohair Roman, and then in her humility she says for the Cabal mini My Lord accept this for me. And she says in Mecca and the semi or leave indeed you are the hearing the knowing meaning you have heard my da you have heard my my dedication and you know my condition. The thing is that
That when you love someone, then you want to offer the best that you have. When we think about, you know, loving Allah subhanaw taala we think that loving Allah means only saying Alhamdulillah once in a while, or singing or listening to, you know, words of praise, etc. We think that is all about loving Allah, loving Allah requires any some, some evidence on our part, some proof on our part, and that is through our acts of service, our acts of dedication. So for example, we should look at ourselves that when I say I love Allah, what am I willing to give for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. In the Quran, we learn that the quality of the righteous of the people of Jana the abroad, is
that when you throw a Muna dorama Allah who be that they give food to others. And one interpretation of this is that they give that they give food to others, because of love for him, meaning because of the love that they have for Allah, what do they do? They go and feed people, and they feed different types of people. So Love is not something stagnant. Love is something that moves you to action. So we all need to check ourselves that if I claim that I love Allah, how do I express that love? What do I do in my love for Allah subhanaw taala. So this lady is dedicating her child, she's saying that my child will worship Allah, I do not have any expectation from my child. And if you think about it,
many parents have expectations from their children, sometimes emotional, sometimes financial, sometimes social, but this lady says my child will be free of me. I want my child to be dedicated fully for the worship of Allah for the service of his religion, but the Cabal mini in Mecca under Samir Allah alim, fellow Mahabharata, call it rugby in the world our to help answer but when she delivered her when she gave birth to her child, and notice the word whether her meaning the child was a girl, a female child. So the mother says, Hannah says, rugby in the regard to help answer that my Lord, I have delivered a female, she was actually hoping for a boy, because customarily, it was
actually boys, not girls, who were dedicated to, you know, to the worship of Allah. Basically, at that time, there was this tradition that people would take their children to bacon marketers, and they would leave their children over there, in order to be in the company of the Prophets, and the scholars, the prophet of that time, or the learned men, the righteous men. And so the children would actually remain within the vicinity of baitul marketers, and they would spend their entire time their entire lives basically, learning the religion and worshipping Allah, and taking care of, you know, the different rituals and and services that that that were there for the money is not you. So
she was expecting that her child would be a boy who would do something like this. And now, when it's a girl, she is as if offering an apology. So Allah subhanaw taala says, will love who are alemu Bhima woebot and Allah who was most knowing of what she delivered, meaning, there's no need to inform Allah, Allah subhanaw taala already knew of what child this lady had given birth to Allah subhanaw taala knew even before this child was born, even at the moment, when the mother was making her pledge, Allah subhanaw taala knew at that time will love our lamb will be my will darts. And then it is said well as a worker who can unser and the male is not like the female. So one opinion
is that this is the statement of the mother of Miriam Hannah, that she said this as a part of her apology, that this child of mine is a girl and girls are not, you know, and the male is not like the female, meaning girls don't do what I want my child to do. Now, this is an important concept, how will you know that we that we must remember that the male is not like the female, because there are indisputable differences between men and women. And these differences are both physiological and psychological. But of course, these differences do not imply that one is better than the other. But it simply means that we need to recognize these differences. And it is because of these differences.
That what is obligated on men will at times be very different from what is obligated on women. what is expected of men is at times very different from what is expected of women. Why because of the inherent differences that exists between men and women. But remember that while there are differences, it doesn't mean that there are you know, there are that men, for example, or women because some people think like that also, that one gender is better than the other. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in the money sell, Shaka ecoregion, that women are counterparts, or twin halves of men, meaning they're equal, in the sense that in religious matters, in general
terms, men and women are the same. Meaning both are required to pray Salah, and a man Salah will not be better, in the sense that it's not going to be more rewarded simply because of the fact that he is a man, the gender does not make one superior. It is other factors that make a person more noble, or more virtuous in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. But there are differences that exist between men and women. And the law that Allah subhanaw taala has given us recognizes those differences and accommodates them. And this is why we see that the rules that are at times given to men are not exactly the same as the rules that are given to women. And, and this is not an all matters, but in
some matters. Now well as a vicar who can answer it has also been said that this that this statement is actually the statement of Allah subhanaw taala in response to the apology that the mother of Medea Marlena cinema offered that yes, the male is not like the female, meaning there's a reason why Allah subhanaw taala created this child to be a female and not a male. Why? Because there are some things that yes, a man can do, which a woman cannot do. And other times there are things that a woman can do, which a man cannot do. And this is because of the differences that exists between men and women. And here in this situation to accomplish Allah subhanaw taala his plan of female was
needed, not a male. And this teaches us something extremely important. And that is that you don't have to become someone else in order to have worth in order to do something to please Allah subhanaw taala in order to do something good, we should accept what Allah subhanaw taala has made us accept who Allah subhanaw taala has made you accept the unique characteristics with which Allah subhana wa tada has shaped you accept the unique circumstances that Allah subhanaw taala has created for you. Sometimes we think that certain things in our life are actually an obstacle and impediment. But the fact is, that what we see as an impediment on our path, in fact, could be a gift. It could be a gift
from Allah subhanaw taala many times, you know, people complain about, you know, you know, the gender that Allah subhanaw taala has created them. And so for example, a lot of times, you know, some women will think that, you know, just because they're a woman, they're not able to do this, they're not able to do that or that they're less worthy, they're less capable, and that and, and that if they want to do something, they have to become very manly, they have to become very masculine, they have to be you know, less feminine, or they have to distance themselves from you know, feminine qualities. So, for example, from motherhood or you know, from from just accepting who
they are or what situation or loss Pousada has put them. And this is, and this is something that is a really unhealthy First of all, it's it's a very unhealthy way of living, that a person is constantly, you know, loading themselves or or that a person is not comfortable in their own skin, in their own body in their own life. And this discomfort is a result of not accepting what Allah subhanaw taala has given us, how Allah subhanaw taala has made us the matters which our last panel data has decided for us, when we accept the way Allah subhanaw taala has made us the unique circumstances the unique gifts that our last panel data has given us. Only then can we be
comfortable with who we are only then can there be self love, self compassion, and only then can
A person do something with their lives. So remember that a constraint what we see as a constraint, what we perceive as a limitation is not necessarily a limitation, it could very well be a guideline. So what we see as an obstacle may not necessarily be the obstacle, it could actually be, you know, a sign that this is the path This is the way this is what we're supposed to be doing. So here we're laser lucker who can answer the mother wanted a boy but Allah subhanaw taala decided that it should be a girl over here because a girl was needed if female was needed, in this case, what in the some made to her Maruyama? What in me are either have Vika with booty yet haha mina shaitana regime, she
said and I have named her motilium and I seek refuge for her in you and for her children for her descendants from the Shaitan be expelled. Now, this lady is very intelligent, she does two things over here. First of all, she gives a good name to her child. And secondly, she gives her child in Allah subhanaw taala has protection.
First of all, remember that it is important to give children good names. When we think about naming children we always some people like to find names which sound very different or names which are very unique and less attention is given to what the name means and more attention is given to how exotic that name is. Remember that giving a good name to a child any This is one of the rights of children that they are given a good name a meaningful name and the Prophet sallallahu earlier said um taught us to give you know names to children, after the after the names of the righteous the names of the Prophets, and whenever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam learned about you know a person or a
person came to to him and their name was not a good name, meaning it did not have a good meaning the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sending would change that name. So the first thing this lady does is that she names her child and she gives her daughter the name Miriam. Now what does the name Medea mean? It's a very beautiful name. You see the word money um it is said that it is derived from Rama Yeti. And Rama you remove is it means to depart from something. It means the borrowed to become distant and remote from something. And in Syriac, it means Marana toolbar, the bitterness of the sea, because the bitterness of the sea meaning the bitter water is avoided. You don't drink it. You don't
drink sea water, no matter how thirsty you are. So Miriam is someone who is distant from what is immoral. Someone who is distant from sin from worldly indulgences. So she is dedicated to her Lord, she is in the worship of her Lord. So it is said that Medea means allow better meaning, the one who worships her Lord, and Hardy Malila be her, the lady who worships and serves her Lord. So the mother of Madame gave her this beautiful name. And then she gives her child in the protection of Allah subhana wa Tada. You see, sometimes we think that we are our children's guardians and protectors. But the fact is, that Allah is the one who guards and protects our children. Allah is the one who
guards and protects all of his slaves. In fact, only he is safe who is in the protection of Allah subhanaw taala. So, as a parent, yes, you should worry about you know, keeping your children safe. But remember that you are not the ultimate guardian and protector of your children. It is Allah subhanaw taala and you experienced this in your life, how you can sometimes protect your children from what is visible. But what about the hidden dangers? What about those dangers which you cannot see? Especially the danger of shade pawn? Who goes straight to the heart and Lady us we Sophie's for duty NASS, the one who whispers into the chests of people. You see, sometimes you surround your
children with blessings, you try to teach them good things. But then still, your children are incapable of seeing the blessings they will find a reason to complain, they will still be ungrateful. Where's that in gratitude coming from? Where is that discontent coming from? It is coming from shaitan so the mother of
Maria, what does she do? She asks Allah subhanaw taala that Yeah, Allah, you guard you protect my daughter, and the children of my daughter from shaitana logy from the occurs shaytaan. You see, every parent wants their child to be safe from all kinds of dangerous from all kinds of harms. And the efforts to protect our children begins even before they're born. We see sometimes expectant mothers are so careful about what they're eating, about their physical movement, about their emotional well being. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised that even when a couple have intercourse, they may god they say Allahumma Janina shaytaan what Geneva shaitana
model zakenna that In the name of Allah, Allah, keep us away from shaitan and keep shaitan away from what you have bestowed upon us. And he said that if you say that, and if a child is ordained for you, then that child will be protected from the Shaitan, meaning shaitan will not be able to harm that child. So we should worry about the safety of our children. And remember, that yes, it is important that we protect our children from germs from, you know, physical dangers, etc. But the greatest danger that any human being has in this life is the danger shaitan in the shaytaan, a coma I do one for the hero, who are the word shaitan is an enemy to you. So take shaitan is an enemy. And
shaitan doesn't wait for, you know, for children to become adults in order to in order to lead them astray. In order to put what's assigned their heart. No shade plan begins from the moment the child is born. As soon as a child is born shaitaan hits the child, and he This is his hatred for human beings. So think about how you should be guarding your children, protecting them, not just you know, in physical terms in worldly terms with regards to their health, but also with regards to their heart with regards to their spirituality with regards to their luck, their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. And we see that even when the child is born, we should seek Allah subhanaw taala as
protection for that child. Now, many Muslims make the event in the ear of the newborn. And this is actually based on a weak narration, but the concept of reciting something at that time in order to seek Allah subhanaw taala is protection against a plan. This concept is correct. So as soon as a child is born, you know, recite ayatul kursi recite them what are we that in order to give the child in a loss protection these days upon Allah. As soon as a child is born people are worried about taking the perfect photos, any that is the time of making the vicar of Allah, of making draw for that child so that that child is safe from the evil of shaitan. So this lady gives her child in the
protection of Allah. What happened for the Kabbalah held a Buddha be a Boolean has an in so her Lord accepted her with good acceptance. What I'm better Hannah Beth and has Santa and caused her to grow in a good manner. Walker fella has a career and put her in the care of zekeriya early his Salah. Now three gifts are mentioned over here. First, the fact that Allah subhanaw taala accepted her with good acceptance. You see her mother, dedicated Miriam and yes, any Hannah dedicated her child and yes, this child was a girl and Allah subhanaw taala still accepted her. You see what matters is that she wanted her child to be dedicated to Allah and Allah subhanaw taala accepted that not necessarily
in the way that Hannah wanted, but she offered something to Allah and she prayed for the humble mini accept for me and Allah subhanaw taala says for the Kabbalah her, Allah subhanaw taala accepted her. So we learned that Hannah, she brought Madame to the bathroom marketers and she requested that her daughter be allowed to remain there. And Allah subhanaw taala created the means for her to have her own place her own quarters within the city within the vicinity of baitul. marketers and inshallah we learn about the details. Second, the second gift that Alice Pandora gave to Miriam is that what I'm better Hannah Burton has Santa. He caused her to grow in a good manner, meaning her upbringing was
excellent. So she had excellent conduct. Her character was excellent. Her knowledge was firm, and she received the company of the righteous. So she learned righteousness.
She learned knowledge she learned religion.
The third gift work her father has a career. Allah subhanaw taala put her in the care of Zakat era has set up, who was a prophet of Allah. You see, when money was born, we learned that her father Enron had already passed away. And her mother, Hannah was the sister of the wife of the curiosity, his center. And we learned that soon after Hannah also passed away. So automatically, Miriam was now in the care of Zakat he already has set up. But before that, even remember that when Hannah brought mme to byton, macness, Allah subhanaw taala, inspired the willingness to be the guardian of money in the hearts of the people in vital noctus. So they were actually fighting over this, they each and
every person wanted to be the guardian of money to be her mentor to be her teacher. So they actually had to cast lots in order to decide who gets the privilege of being her guardian. Now we see over here that Allah subhanaw taala specifically mentions the fact that Zachary ra said I'm a prophet of Allah was her guardian, it is very important for parents to make sure that their children receive the best company, the best environment, you know, righteous company, good teachers, it is not enough for us to fill our homes with, you know, the best toys and the best gadgets and to, you know, just pay for an education, we should also see who is it that our children are spending time with, who are
those people whom our children look up to, because the people that your children spend time with are the people whose personality whose character whose language whose behaviors are going to rub off on your children. So, it is important that we provide a healthy, safe religious environment to our children. So that they, because a lot of action and knowledge is learned, especially when it comes to children, not by you know, study, but by observation, through social interaction. So it is important to provide the right environment, what kind of school are your children going to? What kind of people are the hanging out with? What exactly are they watching on the television? What kind
of books are they reading? Who are they're talking to? These are things that parents must pay attention to. So here is the creality salaam was the guardian of medium meaning he was her teacher, and he would, you know, take care of her putting them at the holler les has a Korean marhaba whether they're in the herd his car, every time that's a curiosity slam entered upon her in the prayer chamber, he found with her sustenance he found with her provision. Now remember that, that money um, she lived within the vicinity of Bethel noctus. And there, as we see in this aisle she had her own may have, may have as in her own prayer chamber, her own place her own private quarters where she
would spend her time in the worship of her Lord. So as a career in a salon being her guardian, he was he was the only one who would come to her in order to teach her etc. In order to bring her food. So every time that he would come to her he would find with her food. So Carla Yeah, Maria mo amalaki her he said, Oh, Miriam, from where is this coming to you? Where did you get this from? Carla to I'm in her in the last she said it is from Allah in the La Jolla, Rosa Kuma Yasha, will be lady who served Indeed Allah provides for whom He wills without account. Now, once a can era Sam finds food with her. Of course, this is something strange in many ways, because firstly, Medea was not someone
to be going around the markets and bringing food for herself. She was dedicated for worship, and she was not want to go and steal, because he was a pious girl, a righteous girl. And on top of that, the food that was with her would be out of season food. So in the winter, the the fruit of summer would be found with her in the summertime, the fruit of winter time would be found with her. So as a guardians a curiosity is sent out. And he he must ask another lucky head. Where did you get this from? And this is a very important lesson that parents educators, mentors can take from hear that the children who are who are under your supervision, you should be aware of what they have, what
they're bringing what is in their hands, and you have the
right to ask Where did you get this from? Not because you doubt them, not because you don't trust them, not because you're accusing them. But to make sure that the children under your supervision are not developing any bad habits, or that they're not being manipulated. nobody's taking advantage of them. So you should be, you know, as a guardian, you have to be extremely attentive, very, very observant, that what is it in the bag of your child? What is it in the hand of your child? If they say that they ate something? Where did they get it from? If they say that they got, you know, a bus ticket? Where did they get the money from? unlucky harder. So be observant. Because it is through
small small things that you know, bad habits develop. And then we see that at times people also take advantage of children, where they will manipulate them sometimes even sexually harmed them. But they will, you know, tell them that, Oh, just eat this chocolate or you know, I'll give you a chocolate if you you know, stay quiet. If you don't tell anybody about this. This is you know, our little secret and every time we have our little secret you get you know this thing from me. So, as a guardian, you must be extremely careful. So the courier s&m says unnai. Lucky her. And then we see that as a prophet, he did not know the unseen. This is why he had to ask her where did you get this
from? And the word could lemma shows every time meaning this didn't just happen once or twice, but many times that could era Sam would find with her food. So he asked her where did you get this from? And millenniums response was who I'm entering the law in the law heroes Akuma your shirt will be lady who's up that this is from Allah. Allah provides when he wills without any account. And this is, you know, this, this basically shows us how Miriam would receive any special gifts from Allah subhanaw taala. And and you know, this is basically a Karama that, you know, a miracle, not because Marian was, you know, causing this to happen, but it just shows how Allah subhanaw taala You know,
he gave her preference. He gave her for Lila virtue in so many different ways. So what happened who nanika does a kuriyama Bahu and he from this it's very obvious how righteous Miriam was how acceptable she was near her Lord, and how much Allah subhanaw taala favored her and was generous to her. So seeing this, the courier is slammed, right there and then at that the courier called upon his Lord, he made the offer to Allah. And he said kala, he said, Robbie hubballi Mila Dunker, the Ria Tompa Heba, my Lord, grant me from yourself, a good offspring in nikka, Samira Dora, indeed you are the hearer of supplication.
We see over here that seeing the example of a young woman, a prophet of Allah is inspired to make girl the Curiosity Sam did not have any children at this point. And he was old, his wife, as we learned, the Quran was barren meaning she was never able to bear any children. And here once a three year on Islam sees how Miriam is receiving gifts from Allah, directly from Allah, and he there is no no apparent sub no apparent cause, then he his, his conviction increases, and he calls upon Allah right there and then who now liquor right there, and then any, he doesn't even wait till a later time, because of this, he calls upon Allah subhanaw taala immediately, and it is important that we
do the same. You see, sometimes there is a wish in our heart, you know, a desire, something that we, you know, want, and then we see, you know, people how easily they have received, you know, that very blessing that we desire. So at that time, he instead of feeling envious, or instead of feeling, you know, self pity, that Oh, poor me, you know, I also wish for this but there's no way I can ever have it. Any Zakat era so no, does not say, Well, you know, okay, good for her. And what can I do? I just don't have children. I don't know if I will ever have children. Look at how he calls upon Allah subhanaw taala when you see other people receiving the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala he this
should inspire you and encourage you that you know what, if Allah, God can give them he can also give me and don't hesitate. So criada immediately makes Dora I'll be happy.
Milligan, Koreatown Paiva he prays for a good child, the reattempt by Heba by Heba good, both physically, spiritually, you know, so he says, the reattempt and this is something that we should all wish for having righteous children. We learn in our holidays that when a person dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three things, meaning three things are a source of benefit for him, even when he has left this world. And one of those three things is a righteous child who prays for him. So the desire to have children, righteous children, is a good desire. There's nothing wrong in having this wish. And there's absolutely nothing wrong in asking Allah subhanaw taala for this. And
remember that every time that you make Dora, you're already being rewarded. So ask Allah and look at his conviction in the customer or girl, you are the hearer of supplication. Now, another important thing we see here is that the clearness time is not just praying for children. He's praying for righteous children. So anything that you ask Allah subhanaw taala, for also make God that it'd be good for you. So for example, when you ask Allah subhanaw taala, for help in, you know, in, in completing your degree, or in getting a certain job, or in getting married, or in, you know, buying a house moving somewhere, ask that it'd be good, and it'd be good for you. And this is one of the
reasons why we pray is the Hata. Because istikhara is about asking Allah subhanaw taala for goodness, that once you have made your decision, then you ask Allah that you're alive, this is good for me. You know, bless it for me, make it easy for me. And otherwise, also, when you ask Allah don't don't just ask for things, ask for things that are good for you. So what happened for that whole manner equal to so the angels called him? Not one Angel, but a group of angels called Zachary arella. His setup? Well, who will call him on while he was standing, you suddenly filled my hub
in prayer in the chamber meetings a career and he said I was standing, praying in his prayer chamber. And right there, the angels addressed him. And what did the angel say to him? That anila Yuba, Shiro can be here? Indeed, Allah gives you good news of you're here of john Mossad. DICOM be Kalamata min Allah, who will be confirming a word from Allah was say you're done and who will be honorable what how Soren and who will be abstaining. When a be your minister Ali hain and who will be a prophet from among the righteous. Zachary Ali Salaam is given the good news that he will have a son, but he's not just given this good news that you're gonna have a son. He's given the good news
that you're gonna have a son whose name will be yahia SubhanAllah. He's even told about the name of his soon to be born son.
And then he's told the qualities of the sun, what are the qualities? First of all, Mossad there can be Kalima, Mossad, the combi Kalima team in Allah He will be someone who will confirm a word from Allah, Who is Kadima to mean Allah. This is reciting his Sunnah. And why is there any solace and I'm called the word of Allah because he was conceived by the Kalima Khan, meaning when Miriam conceived him, this was not because of the act of a man rather, this was because of the Kalima con, the Kalima the word of Allah that be. So the birth of bizarrely Salaam was a miracle. So yeah, your earliest Salaam would be mosaddek for him, he would confirm him, he would be his supporter. And we'll start
the combi Kalamata Minerva secondly yeah he earliest salon would be was say hidden, and he will be a leader in knowledgeable leader alpha key hula Allium, a leader of the righteous say you will mean in the P, a righteous honorable man among his people, a Sharif meaning noble in his behavior. Very, very pious and honored by Allah, householder. And thirdly he would be hustled her sword is someone with great self restraint, meaning he will be completely innocent and pure of sin. In a Hadees we learned that there is no child from the children of Adam except that he made he committed a sin or at least he intended to commit a sin except for yet
Evans a career in a yarn is salon household, any with great self restraint, so he didn't even think about committing a sin. And then nebby Yamuna solly hain, our Prophet among the righteous. Now this good news was even better than the news of a child, the career listen I'm asked for the reattempt by Heba you know a good child and Allah subhanaw taala look at how x you know how, in such a beautiful way Allah subhanaw taala accepted his daughter. And this is important when we make girl and he have great hope. And you know, in Hades we learn that a Lost Planet Allah says, I am as my servant thinks I am. So what do you think about Allah? What do you expect from Allah? Remember, that when you think
good when you expect good, then Allah subhanaw taala will only fill you with goodness what then I lost pounds, I will only respond with goodness. You might not see it immediately. But But there is a lot of good coming your way. Because Hello, Joseph, will your sunny England USA, is there any reward for your son except your son? Meaning if you do good, then what do you expect from Allah? Allah will only give you good.
So when a being a minister Ali hain, a prophet from the righteous, now as a courier has sent him he is shocked. He is amazed so he says Allah or be a Nyah cannoli, Hola. He said, My Lord, how will I have a boy? We'll call the burner Honeywell keyboard. While when I have reached all age, when rottier awkward and my wife is barren. How am I supposed to have a child when I am extremely old and my wife is barren meaning she's never had any children. colloca valic he said yes, meaning the angel said that is how exactly it will be meaning you will be as you are an old man, your wife will be as he is. Yes, he is someone who's never had children. But coholic such is Allah Allah we have for you
Maya, Sha, Allah does whatever that he wants, meaning Allah subhana wa tada fulfills his will, because nothing is beyond him. Nothing. Nothing is beyond his power. Nothing is beyond his ability. So if he wants, he can create a child, he can give you a child. If he wants, he can give you a child as you are old and as your wife is, you know, barren. Or like a valley cola. We have our Lou Maya sharp now as a good era Salaam. He said this out of amazement. How this is amazing, because you see he he made the offer for a child and now that he's given this good news that you're going to have a child he's amazed. Why is he amazed? Is he doubting the power of Allah? No, that that's not the
case. This is like how Ibrahim alayhis salaam said Robbie Adeney. kafer to heal melda that my lord show me how is it that you will give life to those who are dead? And Allah pantherella as the Brahim or the sinner, I want them to come in. Do you not believe the Ibrahim right? I said I'm said of course I do. Bella will actually ultimate in Nickleby, but only so that my heart will be reassured, meaning I want to witness I want to see with my own eyes, how the dead will be resurrected. Because when I see it, then my heart will be you know, reassured that I will have you know, absolute clarity. Because the thing is that until we have clarity until we have witnessed something ourselves
until we you know, see some hard evidence.
We are in anxiety, we are anxious. So the criada has sent out. He asks for, you know, he asks for reassurance over here, basically, not because he doubts the power of Allah. Not because he doubts the news that the angel just gave him. But he he just wants that reassurance. And it's perfectly human to seek that reassurance. So what happened color arbitrarily, Aya he said My Lord make for me a sign meaning make for me a sign once my wife has conceived so that I know for sure that yes, I'm going to have a child. So what happened? Color Aiya Taka Allah to calima NASA thalassa Yamin illa runza he said your sign is that you will not be able to speak to the people for three days except by
gesture. And this was not because he would you know have a a physical deformity or something like that. No. In another place in the Quran we learn that he will be perfectly fine but he would be unable to speak to two people
But he wouldn't be able to communicate through science. So when that happens to you that means that your wife has conceived with called Rebecca kathira was Sabir Bella she you will encounter and remember your Lord much, and exalt Him with praise in the evening and in the morning, now's a good era, Sam wanted to sign so that he would know and be reassured that his wife had conceived. And you see, everyone seeks assurance, because the unknown keeps us anxious. So here we learn a very important lesson. So clearly, Islam is told that once you see the sign, then you should, when you once you experience the sign that you should engage in the vicar of Allah in the morning and in the
evening. And we learn elsewhere in the Quran, that he came and he gestured to his people, he signaled to his people that they should also, you know, make Vicar of Allah remember Allah in the morning and in the evening. So we see here, two things. First of all, when you receive a blessing from Allah, and when you receive, you know, it sound is a hard evidence that you know, what this blessing is on your way. So, for example, a doctor's visit, you know, that that tells you that, yes, you're going to have a child in Sharla, right? Or, for example, you know, you're now engaged Mashallah. Or, for example, you know, you get the admission letter, or, for example, you get the
call, that you know, you've got the job of your dreams, when you receive that, then this is a time of increasing in your the kerravala. A lot of times what happens is that this is when we start talking to people, that's fine. It's, it's okay to share the good news with people. It's okay. But again, you know, the, the one that you are close to Islam, whom you're going to want to be with, is the one whom you're going to want to talk to, is the one whom you're going to want to mention. So the person who, who truly loves Allah subhanaw taala. at such a time, they will certainly remember Allah subhanaw taala even more. So when we receive a blessing from Allah or good news that a
blessing is on its way, then this is a time of increasing our the kerravala Secondly, we see that when we are anxious, when we are anxious, and it's perfectly fine to feel anxious, then again, manage that anxiety with the vicar of Allah. So he's told to do that. Now what now this is how you're here to his son was born. And it through this we learn that the birth of yardi Sam was also a miracle. And the birth of yahaya salaam, in it was something amazing, and the qualities of your hair and his surname show how he was truly, you know, a righteous man, a leader of his people, a prophet of Allah. And if he is going to support restarted his salon, is there any doubt about the truth of
esrd center? Not at all. Look at who the mother of SRT cinemas millennium. Look at how, look at who the supporter of resop SLM is. Yeah, Haley center. So all of these things happened before we started center was even born to show his truthfulness. Now the birth of various artists and I'm How was he born? What is garnethill Mullah, eager to hear Maria and mentioned when the angel said all Miriam in Allah hasta faqih, Indeed Allah has chosen you what the hierarchy and Allah has purified you was the faqih, I learned he said Illa Allah mean and Allah has chosen you above the women of the worlds. Now earlier we learned about how a group of angels came to the criada his Salaam to give him the good
news of the birth of his son. We learn in another place in the Quran, how a group of angels came to Ibrahim Ernie is set up to give him the good news of a son. And here we see that a group of angels were sent to muddy him to give her to give her good news of the birth of a son. But before that the angels say to her that in Allah has the fact that Indeed Allah has chosen you. How is it that Allah prarthana has chosen you we learned earlier about how Allah chose earlier around the family of Iran and Miriam was from the household the family of Milan
and Medina was chosen because of, you know, her piety, her worship her her innocence, her belief. And then we see that she wasn't just chosen once in the last lavake rather she was chosen twice in the last faqih what the Hauraki was lucky. So she was chosen two times. The first time she was chosen, how she was you know, brought in
To marketers, how she worshipped Allah subhanaw taala. There, how her ibadah was so beautiful that she received, you know, food directly from Allah soprano parlor. And then the second time she was chosen was the faqir. I learned, he said, I'll amin over the women of the world's meaning out of all the women of the world, Allah subhanaw taala chose her to be the mother of restarting his center. But we see that between the two in the in the between the two is awfully far meaning the first time I chose her and the second time Allah chose her, but in the middle is the lead purification that first almost patata chose her. Then he purified her. And then he chose her again. Yes, Madame was
from a special household, but she only got the next privilege after purification. And how is it that she was purified from intangible filth, some say that this is referring to how she did not meant to rate but any. That's not not a big deal with the Hauraki. The purification over here is from intangible filth, any from from matters that degrade a person, that dishonor a person in the sight of Allah that distance a person from Allah. And this is, you know, bad habits, bad language, you know, bad a flock. So Maria was purified from all of this. And then the hierarchy She was also purified through different tests that she experienced, was the first year I learned sir Illa Allah
mean, and Allah has chosen you above the women of the words. Now, Madame was truly a chosen woman. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the best woman in her time was Medea, the daughter of Iran. And the best woman, meaning of the time of the Prophet sallallahu earlier sent him is Khadija, the daughter of playlet. Then we also learned the Prophet sallallahu early and sent him said that many men achieved perfection but among women, only medium the daughter of Iran and ESEA the wife of her own achieved perfection meaning they they reached levels that others did not, was the fact here Allah Nisa Illa Allah mean, we also learned that she will be the leader of the women
of paradise. So she's told Yeah, Maria makuuchi Lee Robic or Miriam be devoutly obedient to your Lord was Judy and make such the prostrate worker eema of rock Corinne and bow down with those who bow down, meaning make bluecore in Salah with those who make record in Salah when Allah subhanaw taala has chosen you, then what should you do? You should also be a devout worshiper will condotel Arabic and connote remember is to be consistently devoutly obedient or to remain in a state of worship for a very long time. So it has been said that this means I'll clean and pm fistula that make long clam in Salah, pray and worship for a long time, we'll call it the Robic meaning spend a
great deal of time in the worship of your Lord and then make such the especially Salah has been mentioned. So basically Miriam was instructed here to increase in her worship, to to perform even more worship. This is amazing. Wasn't she already chosen? Yes, she was. And it is only the chosen who who should is who who will we know worship Allah beautifully. But she is told over here to worship even more. Any there's never a position you know, a a state of you know about what your person can say that now, I am such and such. Therefore I don't need to, you know, worship the last panel. The fact is that the higher a person goes, you know, the higher person is in their ranks, the
more worship they should, they should dedicate to Allah subhanaw taala any, there is never a time when a person can say, I don't need to worry about my Salah or I don't need to worry about how much quantum reciting there should always be that eagerness to increase. And then especially when money over has been chosen for his special, you know, privilege, then how to show gratitude for that by increase in worship. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what was his way? We learned that when anything, you know came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which pleased him any any good news, then he would make such the out of gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala. So our response to
receiving a blessing from Allah should be
We increase in our worship. We also learn about the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sent him how he would, you know, do pm for so long that his feet would swell. And when he was asked that Why do you do that when all of your sins have been forgiven? He said a fella akuna Robin shockula should I not be a grateful slave? So out of gratitude increase in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala
Allah Subhana Allah says Valley come in amber la nahi Lake, that is from the news of the unseen which we reveal to you. What are contoller they him if you will Puna Coloma home and you are Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were not with them, when they were casting their pens. Why were they casting their pens? A you whom you are called ammonium, to decide as to which of them should be responsible for money. Who should be her guardian? Well, now quintella de him idiocracy, moon, nor were you with them when they disputed. So there was a dispute? Yes, there was, and why were people casting their pens into, you know, into the river? You see what happened is even God reports that
millenniums mother meaning Hannah, broad medium to beta marketers. And she brought Miriam tbaytel marketers to the you know to the rabbi's to the scholars who were present over there. And she said to them, that take this child because I have vowed I have pledged her, you know for the worship of Allah soprano tada and I have set her free, more held up. And I'm not going to take her back home. So they said that she is the daughter of our Imam. Why because Iran was there Mmm, as long as he was alive, he was there he Ma'am, he used to lead them in prayer. And we used to take care of their, you know, sacrificial rituals. So the creality sent him said, Give her to me meaning I will be her
guardian because her maternal aunt is my wife, meaning the maternal aunt of money is my wife. But they said that our hearts cannot bear that you take her because she is the daughter of our email. And he Okay, fine. You are related to her. But we also, you know, should have a chance because after all, Enron Her father was our leader,
our email, so there was a, you know, discussion about this, everybody wanted to be the guardian of medium. So what did they do, they decided to cast lots. And we learned that they went to the river. And they cast lots over there how by casting their pens in each person cast his pen into the river. And the idea was that whoever's pen remains a float and still would indicate in any would be the the the the guardian of Medea, he would have to take care of it. So everybody cast their pens, and it was the pen of the Curiosity salon that remained afloat, and it remained still. So the Curiosity senem became the guardian of medium. Now, this idea shows us many lessons. First of all, it
clarifies to us the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
because how could he have known all of this? Remember that the Arabs were known as the oma Yun, the unlettered people, people who did not have a scripture? They were completely unaware of the stories of the bunny, is he? So how is it that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam knew the story, he wasn't making this up? And he hadn't learned it from another person? And even if he did, how would he know so many details? So these verses, first of all point to the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And remember the background of these verses, a group of Christians had come from the drawn, so it was made very clear that this man is a prophet of Allah, these verses are
revelation from Allah. Secondly, it is made clear over here that the Prophet salallahu Urdu said and did not know the unseen, because you were not there. Right? It says very clearly, well, my content are they him, you were not present at the time, when they were casting their pens into the river, you were not present. So if the Prophet salallahu early is not conveyed any such news, this is because it was given to him through revelation by Allah subhanaw taala. And then thirdly, we also learn from the spy app about how Allah subhanaw taala accepts the draws of his righteous slaves, how the mother of magium offered the best that she had, in her love for Allah subhanaw taala as you
know, as her Buddha as our servitude to Allah subhanaw taala she pledged her child and even though the child was not a boy
She had expected look at how money was not only accepted by Allah, but look at how much people loved her. Look at how people wanted the privilege of being her guardian. So who put it in the hearts of those people? It is Allah subhanaw taala Who did that?
So now what happened Madame arlena salaam, she, she's in baitul Muftis. And now, from the next verse the story of the birth of reciting Assam is given how Millennium was chosen the second time for a greater privilege and inshallah we will
do that in our class tomorrow inshallah. So, we will conclude over here so panicle lahoma will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta, a stuffy recall at Lake wa salam or Aleikum, wa Rahmatullahi wa barakato
