I said I'm already come What? Allah He will Barakatuhu

00:00:41--> 00:00:43

00:01:16--> 00:02:18

sort of earlier in Ron I am number 92 Lenten Allah will build your head tone FICO Mima to a boon warmer tone FICO min Shea in for in the Lucha be here Eileen, never will you attain the good reward, you will never be able to attain piety, until when until you spend from those things which you love. And whatever you spend, Indeed Allah is Knowing of it. A last panel thought it says over here lantana will be over. You can never attain you can never reach bed at all. Now bid includes all kinds of deeds of piety and reward that take their door to Jenna to paradise. So you can never attain a beer. Until when until you spend from that which you love. Now, the fact is that we love

00:02:18--> 00:03:09

many things. And we're not always required to give only those things which we love. But definitely this should be a part of our giving habit, that we give, we spend of those things which we love for ourselves. First of all, remember that successful are those people who give those people who spend regularly on themselves on others on their family, their friends, their neighbors, those who are in need, on people's education for the religion of Allah, so on and so forth. And then secondly, when we develop a habit of giving, then we should see what is it that we are giving is it things which are good or things which are worthless, which are defective, or have no no value at all, which

00:03:09--> 00:04:01

people do not like, what we give should be of benefit to others, it should not be a burden to others, but then when we give we should also see that is it is this something that I like for myself, because when a person gives to others what they like for themselves, then this is a sign of faith. This is a sign of Amen. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that by the one in whose hand is my soul, lie you mean you're either doing a slave cannot truly believe until he loves for his brother, what he loves, for himself of good things, meaning of good things of you know, have different things of value. Whatever you love for yourself, when you love that for others, than that

00:04:01--> 00:04:52

is an evidence that is a sign of faith. And this has actually been this is actually a good deed that takes a person to Jenna, like we learn in total Bukhara We're at almanor Allah who be that pieties of those people who give wealth, despite their love for it, meaning they give of those things. They give those things, even though they love those things for themselves. In sootel insam, we learn about the description of the abroad of the people of Paradise, the pious, the righteous. One of their qualities is that when you remove barama Allah who be miskeen and weigh a team and what a Syrah that they give food, in spite of love for it, meaning, even though they love to eat that food

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

themselves, they still give it to others. They won't eat it themselves, but they will feed it to others and

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

And who is it that they give it to miskeen a person in need way a team and an orphan what a sealer and a prisoner. So remember, it's good to feed others. But a person can only attain bid, the higher levels of reward a means of entering paradise when they give the food which they love to eat themselves. Now, this is where we need to check ourselves, which piece of meat do we take in our plate, and which piece of meat do we give others, which slice of pizza, the one with more pepperoni, the one with more meat, the one with more chicken, the one that's bigger, is that what we take for ourselves? Or is that what we offer others? Remember that if we live just to please ourselves, then

00:05:47--> 00:06:37

life would actually become quite boring and lonely, when we give to others, we get to connect with them. When we give others we actually feel happier, the satisfaction, the joy that we receive by giving is nowhere near the same, as you know, is very different it is it is much greater than the joy that we experienced simply by, you know, feeding ourselves, or by satisfying our own desires. Now, minmatar a boon what you love, this could be anything, you know, this could be the food that we love, the drink, that we love, the money that we love, it could be our own life, our own time, our preferences, you know, the things that we love to do. It's the it could be the individuals, the

00:06:37--> 00:07:26

people that we love, you know, our children, our friends, this can also include our ego, you know, I am right business. You know, we love our opinions, we love to exert our authority, we love that people should accept our suggestions, our opinions. So what we love, this could be something tangible, it could also be something intangible. So giving of what you love, this is something that increases you in piety, this is something that increases you, in your nearness to Allah subhanaw taala. Now, there could be many reasons to give up what we love, and sometimes to give up what we love. You see, sometimes there's something that we love, but it is not loved by Allah, so we have to

00:07:26--> 00:08:14

give it up. It could be something that is not permissible for us. So we have to keep away from it. It could be something that we love, but it is distracting us from Allah subhanaw taala. So again, we have to leave it sometimes what we love occupies, you know, a huge place in our heart, a huge, you know, chunk of our time, so, and it could be an app, it could be a game, so where it is distracting us from Allah subhanaw taala, then that, then that becomes a reason to, you know, give up what we love. So the thing is that what we love of this world, can actually hold us back from realizing our dreams. And these could be both religious and also worldly. So at times, we have to give up what we

00:08:14--> 00:08:58

love, for greater goals for success. And sometimes what we love can actually become an obstacle between us and Allah subhanaw taala. And sometimes, you know, the things that we love are neither an obstacle, nor are they, you know, something that is holding us back from realizing our dreams, but still we should give of what we love, why to attain higher levels in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala like a Buddha, how did you learn more? And who will tell how did you learn more and when he heard about this idea, he came to the Prophet sallallahu early he was sending them and he said that all messenger of Allah Allah subhanaw taala says that London aloe vera head data and fecal matter a

00:08:58--> 00:09:41

boon and there is no property of mine which is more beloved to me. Then, then the land of mine, which is Badal Ha. And remember that this this particular property of his was prime real estate, it was very, it was actually across the masjid of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would often go into that garden, and he would, you know, rest over there, he would drink the water over there. So, so we thought, why don't you learn more and who said that I wish to give this, you know, in the way of Allah subhanaw taala in order to attain beard, and I make you a witness. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam congratulated him and he praised

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

him a lot for giving that land in the way of Allah subhanaw taala for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually told him to divide that property amongst his relatives, and that is what Ableton How did you learn more and who did he divided that property amongst his own cousins and relatives as well?

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

As the according to the suggestion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, sometimes you know, what we love, yes, it is being a hurdle or it is being a distraction or it is something that is leading us to sin, but other times it is not problematic at all. It is just, you know something that we enjoy something that we you know, find pleasure in something that is, you know, adding to the quality of our life, but even then, you know, this is this is an opportunity to really draw closer to Allah subhanaw taala to experience the joy of faith so learn can and will build raw habitat on fecal matter a boon one atone for common Highland for in Allah be here Arlene. Then it is

00:10:47--> 00:11:35

said coliform you can a hell a Liberty SRL all food was lawful to the children of Israel ill in llama ama how Roma israa ayllu Allah NFC except what is wrong il had made unlawful to himself mean commonly antenas Zilla telrad, before the Torah was revealed, qualified to be thorough refer to her in quantum saw the pain, say so bring the Torah and recite it if you should be truthful. Now here a response to some of the criticism of the People of the Book is being given the Jews they said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that if you claim to be a follower of Ibrahim, then how come you don't follow the law of the Torah? How come your dietary law is different from ours? And how was it

00:11:35--> 00:12:18

different? Specifically, we see that you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he ate and he, you know declared permissible you know, the eating of camel meat. And we see that in, in the law of the Jews you need this is something that is not permissible. They don't eat the meat off camels. So it is clarified over here that originally all the things that are permissible now, were actually permissible before and then your Kubernetes salon, he made certain things unlawful on himself. And from narrations. We learned that this was because of his health. And camel meat was one of those things which your Kubernetes lamb would not eat. And we see that later on certain good things were

00:12:18--> 00:13:06

made impermissible on the bunny is slightly ill as a result of their wrongdoing as a result of there since So, it is clarified over here that the law of the tow rod was not always observed. Nor is it meant to be followed forever. It was for the bunny is for you. It was revealed to Masai Salaam and the prophets after him. And we learned that even in the book of Genesis it is mentioned how after knew how they said I'm disembarked the ship, he was told everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Meaning the color pharmacann a hill and all all food meaning anything that is edible, was something permissible for people for the money is slightly and then later on things were

00:13:06--> 00:13:51

forbidden because of different reasons. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was only reviving the original law. He was not, you know, coming up with a completely different law. No, he was only reviving the original law. And then it is said from an if there are Lola Hill, Kenny bamidbar, the valic and whoever invents about Allah untruth after that for Allah ecomo volley moon and those are truly the wrongdoers meaning even after this clarification, if you come up with excuses and reasons to deny what you've been told, then that is nothing but injustice. So this shows us that when you have proof, you know from the Quran, from the Sunnah, then rejecting that proof that evidence would

00:13:51--> 00:14:39

be injustice, injustice against to against oneself, and also against others, because through such denial, a person is not only going to stray themselves, they're also leading other people astray. Earlier we learned about how it is it is important that we give of what we love in order to attain piety. And sometimes what we love is actually ourselves, our opinions, or the habits that we have developed or, you know, the way that we have always been thinking, and sometimes it is essential that we change that in order to adhere to the truth. Because you know, we're not perfect, and with time we realized that what we were doing previously was wrong, or what you know, what we had learned

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

previously was wrong. So when we learn about the truth from the Quran, from the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. Then here is a chance to attain bid. And how do we do that by giving of what we love by by sacrificing our ego and by admitting that yes, I will

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

Wrong. And now I have learned about the truth and I will accept it and I will change myself. But those people who remain stubborn than such are a lowly moon. Call sadhak Allah say Allah has told the truth for Tibet Rumi letter, Ibrahima hanifa. So follow the religion of Ibrahim, who was such that he always inclined to the truth, one Academy now mushrikeen and he was not of the polytheists. So it is made clear here, that what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed in the Quran, what Allah subhanaw taala has stated in the Quran, whether it is about you know, about dietary laws or it is about, you know, about about iacobelli has Salaam or no Hallo Sam, or the law, etc, that whatever

00:15:48--> 00:16:33

Allah has said, Whatever Allah has revealed in the Quran, that is the truth, and whatever contradicts that is untrue. And this is something that we need to believe in. This is something that we should remember that sadhak Allah, Allah has spoken the truth. What why would Allah's word not be the truest when Allah subhanaw taala is the creator of everything, he is the one who knows everything, he is the first and the last. So how, how is it that Allah subhanaw taala statement would not be the truest any, when it comes to people, you we should admit our limitation, we should be humble and we should accept that we don't know everything. And perhaps what we have discovered,

00:16:34--> 00:17:19

perhaps what we have observed, could be wrong, perhaps what we have, you know, concluded, you know, it's, it's, it's possible that it is wrong. So, we should be humble, and we should not bring you know, statements and, you know, results from different researches and bring them in contradiction to the Quran that you know, this is what science says. This is what research says. This is what you know, these many studies show and all of this contradicts the Quran. This is a very wrong approach. Remember, sunak Allah, Allah subhanaw taala statement is true. Every statement of the Quran is fact Valley colicky, taboo love a Buffy This is a book in which there is no doubt, nothing at all is

00:17:19--> 00:18:05

doubtful. Nothing at all is is erroneous, nothing at all is wrong. So call sadaqa Allah for Toby romila, Ibrahima, hanifa, wema catamenial mushrikeen. So be true followers of the way of Ibrahim and his center and Ibrahim was not of those who are wish the king those who associate partners with Allah. So this shows us that the people who are not really following the way of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, then such people are actually associating partners with Allah, how are they associating partners with Allah, it could be associating their own ego right themselves or something else with Allah subhanaw taala because Ibrahim It is said I'm his way was off, complete submission to Allah.

00:18:05--> 00:18:55

His way was off of pure monotheism. He was a Hanif one Academy now mushrikeen. Then another clarification is given in the Oh, one debating will the early nasci Lola de Baca, indeed, the first house of worship that was established for mankind was that at makaha it is the one which is in Makkah, or bucha. And this house is Mubarak and it is blessing. And it is where who de Lille al amin a guidance for the worlds and we see that the People of the Book brought another objection regarding the Qibla meaning if you say that you are the follower of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, then how come you face the Kaaba when you pray? Why is it that you have changed your Qibla from vital markers to the

00:18:55--> 00:19:41

Kaabah to masjidul head on, because Ibrahim Raya Salah migrated to Sham and the prophets after him were also in a sham and by to mock This is in a sham and that was the place of worship. So how come the Muslims have left that and now you know they have taken the Kaaba as their pillar, because according to them, the beighton marketers which is a sham that is the original place of worship. So it is made clear over here that that in fact, the original Qibla was always the Kaaba, because it is the first place of worship that was ever built. And it was for all people, not just for the bunny is slightly ill, and that house is mobarak. So it is clarified that the first Qibla the first house of

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

worship was the Kaaba, not baitul muchness. So we learn here that Makkah, is called bucha. Right the house which is in bucha. Now bucha is one of the ancient names of maca, and maca has many names and one of them is bucha. And we see that the Valley of

00:20:00--> 00:20:52

Baca is also mentioned in the Bible. Now, what is the meaning of burqa? We see that the word bucha Yambuku, it means to tear or to break something up. So it is called bucha. Because the next of the arrogant, the next of people who are very mighty and very stubborn, their necks are broken when they go to Makkah, meaning they also become humble. They also, you know, break down before Allah subhanaw taala, this journey to Mecca, and the worship that is performed in Makkah, it really breaks, you know, the ego, and the stubbornness of those who are stubborn. So, so this is one of the reasons why mcca is called bucha. And then it's also called bucha, because it brings booka booka is to cry to

00:20:52--> 00:21:35

weep. And so, you know, people who may be very arrogant, very hard hearted, even their hearts, you know, they become soft in Makkah, and they begin to cry. And we see that, especially when it comes to hedge, you know, or omona, because everyone is dressed in the same way. Of course, the men, you know, they're dressed in the same way, two sheets of cloth for a home, you you cannot really tell who is from which country, you know, whose job is what, who status is what. So there's really a sense of equality, that humbles people. Because in general, what happens is that we become very arrogant because of the car that we're driving, you know, the clothes that we're wearing, the, you

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

know,

00:21:36--> 00:22:25

our background, etc. But in mucca, big because everyone is looking the same. Everyone has to do the exact same acts of worship, you know, that there there's a there's a sense of equality which humbles people. So this is why mcca is called bucha. And the word Baca also gives a sense of, you know, crowding, so mcuh is called bucha. Because people yeka bacuna, fi has meaning people crowd over there, there is a huge gathering of people over there. So this house, which is in bucha, is the first house of worship. We learned that a Buddha or the Longhorn who he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that all messenger of Allah, which mosque was the first on the surface of the

00:22:25--> 00:22:49

earth, meaning which mosque was built first. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, I must do their harm. He asked, then which one and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, must jewel Aqsa meaning vital markers, which is in Jerusalem. So this is the original, the ancient the first house of worship that was built for people. And this is a reason why

00:22:50--> 00:23:39

this is the reason why Muslims face it in salah and this house is mobarak Mubarak means that which is filled with goodness and benefit. And truly there are many religious and worldly benefits that we can derive from that place. You see some places are more blessed that there are more virtuous compared to others. And what is it that makes those places more virtuous? It is when Allah subhanaw taala gives them special significance. maca is special. Why? Because the karma is there, Ibrahim and his senang the person whom Allah subhanaw taala made his colleague, right Khalid Allah, He is the friend of Allah Guinea. He built the Kaaba at the command of Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah subhanaw

00:23:39--> 00:24:27

taala has blessed the land in which the Kaaba stands. And this is so amazing. And I had these we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was leaving Makkah, he was migrating from Mecca to Medina, he turned to look back at MOCA, and he said, in the killer Hiroo, early lahaie, you are the best Earth of Allah being the best land of Allah, meaning out of all the places on the earth, you are the best place on the earth, what a horrible early lay in Allahu zoa gela and you are also the most beloved land to Allah, the Exalted meaning out of all the places on the earth. mcca is the most beloved land to Allah. Now, if you think about it, mcca is what it is a barren

00:24:27--> 00:25:00

Valley, it is a dry desert, it's surrounded with rock and sand, yet it is more virtuous than, you know the Rockies or Yosemite or the hohenzollern or any other you know, beautiful place on earth or any any beautiful mountain. Why is it more special? Because Allah subhanaw taala has given it that significance, Allah subhanaw taala is worshiped over there. And this is, you know, the place the Kaaba is what we face when we pray. And the fact is that you

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

You can worship Allah subhanaw taala in any place on the earth worship is valid in all places, but some places are more virtuous. So if a person worships there, the reward is greater. And mcca is one of those places. We see that it is so blessed that the reward for one Salah is so much more the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said one Salah in and must have been Haram, which is in Makkah is better than 100,000 prayers anywhere else. Allah Akbar, we see that Hajj and Romano can only be performed in a muscular home in Makkah, and there are cause of removal of sin. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, well, Anil hedger yeah de mama can acaba who that Hajj destroys

00:25:44--> 00:26:26

whatever that is before it, meaning any sin that a person has committed before hedge that is destroyed, it is erased, It is finished. And so if a person does hedge mob rule, a hedge that is filled with goodness, a hedge that is accepted, then a person returns home, so clean and pure of sin, like the day that they were born. And we see that when a person goes for hygiene or not consecutively. Then in hedis, we learned that this is something that removes poverty and sin, and there is more sustenance over there. And so the apostles if 58, we learn about Makkah, that you Jabba, alayhi salatu, Kula shake, all all fruits are brought into Makkah. And then we see in this

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

ayah, that Mecca is also where who the lilla Allah mean a guidance for people. This is so beautiful. Remember that guidance is of many kinds, there is guidance of your shad houda which is of his shared meaning, knowledge, awareness, Monifa when a person you know, develops awareness, then this is a source of guidance when a person gains knowledge, then this is a source of guidance, this is a form of guidance. Secondly, who that guidance is also a field of armor of action. Meaning when a person does something good, then this is a part of guidance. And then who that is also often beat this beat meaning steadfastness and firmness. Now, when a person visits mcca, and they see the Kaaba, they see

00:27:14--> 00:27:59

Safa Marwah, they see maqam Ibrahim, they witness all of these places themselves, then they increase in their knowledge in their awareness. When a person goes to Makkah, you know, they get to listen to more Quran, they get to recite more Quran, sometimes they get to, you know, sit in the gatherings of knowledge, you get to really learn in Makkah, and then we see that there is more Amil in Makkah, more worship in Makkah, how you get to hear the event five times a day, right you you get to pray in the masjid, you are more inclined to worship Allah subhanaw taala over there, you give more charity, you say more Salaam, right. You you practice more self restraint, you pardon people more, you are

00:27:59--> 00:28:49

more generous to people. So there is the houda of armor of action. And all of this becomes a means of strengthening your faith. So through by visiting mcca you know you you get to increase in guidance. So Allah subhanaw taala says it is we're who then Leela aalameen it is a guidance for the people of the worlds fee a atom by Hina tune, Mocambo Ibrahim, in it are clear signs such as the standing place of Ibrahim, meaning within bucha. within the city of Makkah, there are clear signs, clear signs of what clear signs of the fact that it was actually Ibrahim on a Sam who built the Kaaba, meaning the Kaaba was built, where before, before masjidul oxa. It was built where before the

00:28:49--> 00:29:34

beta doctors, so there are clear signs in Makkah. And there are clear signs that Allah subhanaw taala has honored this place. And Allah subhanaw taala has chosen this place of others. And we see that the macom Ibrahim, it's the it's the rock of the stone on which the impressions of Ibrahim artists and feet are still there. And that itself is a clear sign. And we have been told in fact that what does he do memahami Ibrahima masala that take them a common Brahim as a place of prayer meaning and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam demonstrated that, that after the love a person should, you know pray to the car and they should pray those two rock are facing matam Ibrahim. Now

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

remember that Macaulay Brahim actually used to be situated right next to the Kaaba. And then later on remodeled the Longhorn who he moved macabre him, you know, a little away from the Kaaba. Why is that the people who are doing the laugh could do you know could make tawaf easily without disturbing those who are, you know, praying next to the mechanic Brahim after they're tough, so fee is to buy

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

Net Mocambo Ibrahim. And then under sad woman, the holla who can Amina and whoever enters it is safe or shall be safe. Now this is a statement of fact that whoever enters Makkah will be safe. And that is the case. We see that even in the time of diarrhea in the time before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If a person wanted safety, they would run into Makkah. Why? Because over there, everyone's life was safe. So if a person even came across the murder of his own father, he wouldn't do anything. Why? Because woman de holla who can Amina and this has mentioned in the Quran that our Lamoureux unnatural. Holloman Amina that, do they not see how we have made how long as a place that

00:30:47--> 00:31:37

is safe, with the help of NASA mean holy, whereas the fact is that people all around them are being snatched away, meaning all over the earth people are being attacked, but in Makkah, people are safe. This is mentioned in sort of Quraysh also, Lila feel Quraysh right. And then finally our Buju log, behead and bait, a levy of Rama hoomin. During while I'm in a human health, that Olivia therma home enduring Allah subhanaw taala is the Lord of this house who, who provides, you know, the people of Makkah with food and protects them from hunger, and what Elena human health and he has granted them security against fear, meaning in mucker, they are safe. So MCI is truly a safe refuge for those who

00:31:37--> 00:32:02

are in a state of fear for those who are in a state of anxiety. And truly, this is one of the first things that you experience. When you enter Makkah that you have a sense of calm, there is a sense of security. And then we see that even animals cannot be frightened. You know, in Makkah, they cannot be chased out of Makkah, and those in Morocco will actually be safe from the fitna of the gel.

00:32:03--> 00:32:52

So and those who go towards Mecca, they are, you know for pilgrimage they are in Allah subhanaw taala is protection. So woman, the Hala who cannot Amina This is a statement of fact that whoever enters it is safe. And this can also be taken as a command that whoever enters it shall be safe, meaning whoever enters Makkah should be safe, meaning Allah subhanaw taala is commanding us that we are not allowed to cause harm to those who are in the harem. their property, their honor their life, you know, their safety, all of that is extra, you know, secure in that place of sanctity. So woman the Hala who cannot Amina and then it is said well Illa here Allah nursey head jewel Beatty many

00:32:52--> 00:33:41

still para la he sebelah and due to Allah from the people is a pilgrimage to the house for who for whoever is able to find their to away woman kufan off in the law honey Yuna Angela Allah mean, but whoever disbelieves then Indeed Allah is free from need of the worlds. Now here we see the clearly the obligation of which has been mentioned well Illa, Allah naseeha jailbait, it is the right of Allah, and an obligation on people, that people must do Hajj for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala they owe this to Allah, this is a rite of Allah on them, that people must visit the house, they must do the Hajj. But this is of course for who Minister thora la Sevilla, not an everybody it is on

00:33:41--> 00:34:25

those who are able to find a way over there. What does this mean? This means that they're able to afford the journey they have sufficient provision for the journey. And secondly, also a means of getting there in means of transportation. So minister, thar la he sebelah and of course, you know, you know, for women, for instance, they must have a maharam right, a person must be in a state of you know, good health, that you know, able to make the journey of Hajj. So my name is Dr. Elahi sebelah. And then it is mentioned that whoever disbelieves then Indeed Allah is free of need of the world's meaning of a person does not do Hajj, then this is called fronto nirma. This is extreme in

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

gratitude. And and if a person denies the obligation of Hajj, then this actually is covered. Meaning if a person says no, it's not necessary to do, how do there's no way I'm going to do hedge the end they don't do hedge then this actually is covered. In a hadith we learned that whoever is able to do hedge and they refuse to do it, they don't do it. The gist of the Hadith as such, then Allah Subhana Allah does not care about that person, whether that person dies is a Jew or a Christian. So uncuff Allah for in Allah honey Yoon is an enemy. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said Are you her nest

00:35:00--> 00:35:39

follow the law who are Aleikum? Well, have you ever had for her do that oh people Allah has obligated Hajj on you, therefore, do Hajj may catch it is one of the best deeds after he met the Prophet sallallahu Urdu someone was asked a EULA Emily affable, which deed is the best is the most superior in terms of reward of the Prophet sallallahu earlier Sallam said a man who believed he was solely to believe in Allah and His messenger. Then he was asked then what? So he said, algea defeasible Allah striving in the way of Allah. Then he was asked then what he said had you mob rule, a hedge that is accepted a house that is filled with goodness, and remember that the people who go

00:35:39--> 00:36:23

for Hajj are actually in the way of Allah, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in Alhamdulillah Murata min Seville Allah, Hajj and Umrah are from the way of Allah meaning they're part of what is considered the way of Allah and a person is rewarded for every step that they take in order to go for Hajj. Therefore, we should not delay if we have not done how much we should make the intention and we should prepare for it and preparing for it means saving for it, sometimes not just for one year, but for multiple years. Any save money in order to go for Hajj, make that intention that I want to go for Hajj and pray to Allah subhanaw taala you know, make dog and May

00:36:23--> 00:37:05

Allah subhanaw taala you know, grant us all safety and security everywhere and May and May the you know way for her to be opened up for all of us so that we can visit the house of Allah again and worship Allah subhanaw taala over there. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, hasten in fulfilling the obligation of Hajj for none of you knows what may come before him as an obstacle. Allahu Akbar, we never expected that there would be a time when people would not be allowed to go for Hajj, where there would be a very, you know, a very, very few people performing hajj This is something that we never expected never imagined. And this is a lesson for us that when something is

00:37:05--> 00:37:52

you know and obligation upon us that we should not delay it unnecessarily. Because we don't know what what might happen in the future, what might become an obstacle. And, and so well Illa here Allah Nasir hyjal Beatty minister thar la Sabina. And if a person does not go for Hajj, does not even think about it. In the Hadees, we learn that Allah subhanaw taala says that when I give when I have given health to a slave in his body, and given ample provision to him, and five years go by, and he does not come to me, meaning still he does not go he does not visit mcca does not do Hajj or Umrah then such a person is truly deprived. So we should make the intention we should have that

00:37:52--> 00:38:34

desire, that wish that yearning that he or Allah I want to go. And it should not just be, you know, a wish, but a wish that we are actively, you know, working on to fulfill by you know, for example, making the intention, you know, planning in advance, saving up the Prophet sallallahu earlier said and warned us he said take benefit from this house, the benefit from the house of Allah, because indeed it will be brought down twice, meaning two times it will be demolished. And the third time it will be lifted up. Meaning just because the carbine is there, don't think that it will that it will always be accessible to you. You don't know first of all what's going to happen in your own personal

00:38:34--> 00:39:18

life. The last panel tried to protect us but we don't know how our circumstances may change. And then we don't know how the circumstances in the world may change. And then the Kaaba is also not meant to stay in the world forever. Because close to the Day of Judgment, it's going to be removed from the earth. So it's truly a blessing it is mobarak and we should be eager to benefit from it and not take it for granted. Then it is said earlier a Hillel Kitab Lima tuck furono be at Lehi. Well Allahu shahidan Allah matar Malone, say all People of the Scripture, why do you disbelieve in the verses of Allah, while Allah is witness over what you do? So the people of the book are being

00:39:18--> 00:39:59

reprimanded over here, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu centum is being told to say to them, Allah Subhana Allah does not even address them directly over here that Yeah, hello Kitab No, it is cool. Yeah. Al Kitab or messenger, you say to them, you say to them, so look at the distance that is created over here that you ask them? Why do you disbelieve in the verses of Allah, while Allah is a witness over what you're doing? And really, this is a lesson for all of us. That why be dishonest with ourselves with others with Allah subhanaw taala when Allah subhanaw taala knows our truth, when Allah subhanaw taala knows what we're doing. There's no hiding

00:40:00--> 00:40:49

from Allah, there's no deceiving Allah. So let us stop pretending. Let us stop being fake because Allah knows what we're doing. Cool Yeah, lol Kitab limiter so dooner and Seville Allah human armineh de Luna her Eva Jen, what? untung shuhada? One Allah who be laughing, unmet arm alone, say all people have the Scripture, why do you avert from the way of Allah? Those who believe seeking to make it seem deviant? What? Why are you trying to trying so hard to turn people away from the religion of Allah, especially those who have already believed any one crime was the people who had not believed, you know, that they would turn them away? Because you see, the people of Arabia, they were not

00:40:49--> 00:41:28

People of the Scripture. And the people of the book, there were People of the Scripture. So the people of Arabia, the only us they would look up to the Al Kitab. So to conclude, you know, to learn about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to see, you know, to to investigate his case, they actually went up to the people of the book, and they would ask them, that, what do you say about him? Is he really a prophet of Allah? And instead of telling them the truth about the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, they would deny the signs of Allah, they would deny the verses of Allah, whether it was the verses present in their scripture, which contained the evidence is the

00:41:28--> 00:42:12

signs of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Or it was, you know, the verses that were revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam they were in denial. And through that, they were turning people away from the religion of Allah, they were turning people away, they were stopping people from from Islam. And then people who had already believed, what would they do, they would hinder them also, how double hoonah her rewards by seeking to make Islam deviant. And these are efforts that were present at the time of the Prophet sallallahu earlier sentiment, they have actually continued since then, any even today, you will find people who are actively trying to turn Muslims

00:42:12--> 00:42:14

away from Islam. So

00:42:16--> 00:42:58

the people of the book are being asked, Why do you do that? Why are you working so hard to hinder people from Allah? What untung shuhada while you are witnesses, leading your witnesses to the truth, you know about it yourself? One Mullah who be lawful in a matter I'm alone. A threat is given over here, and Allah is not unaware of what you do. Now, Allah subhanaw taala directly addresses the believers. Yeah, a U haul. levina Manu, notice the difference when it comes to the people of the book, Allah subhanaw taala tells us messenger sallallahu earlier send them to to speak to them. Allah Subhana Allah does not address them directly. But when it comes to the believers, Allah

00:42:58--> 00:43:49

subhanaw taala addresses them directly. Yeah, are you Hello, Dina, Manu, interpleader ofori, a commoner. levina Auto keytab. If you obey a party of those who are given the Scripture, not all of them, some of them specifically certain groups, if you were to obey them, what would happen? Yo do compare that Imani calm caffeine, they will turn you back after your belief to being unbelievers. So here, the Muslims are being warned, that do not follow the People of the Book, do not follow their ways. Why? Because they are not upon guidance. And especially some of them are actively trying to turn you away from Islam. Be very careful. Do not listen to them. do not obey them. Why? Because if

00:43:49--> 00:44:34

you obey them, then they're going to turn you back into disbelief. You will no longer remain believers, you're going to get influenced by them, you're going to get affected by them. And this is a fact you do get affected by the company you keep, you certainly get affected by the people that you listen to, by the things that you read. So be careful. And here, you know, we also learn that you that you should not obey, you know or or, or imitate or be like those who are not of your religion. Why? Because you should be yourself. You know, when a person begins to imitate others, then they don't remain true to their own identity. And eventually they become who they are not. They

00:44:34--> 00:44:59

know that they become fake, that they're living a life of pretense. So be careful. You are those who believe in Allah you are those who submit to Allah, your goal in life is to please Allah subhanaw taala and you have guidance regarding every matter. You have the book of Allah, you have the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu

00:45:00--> 00:45:17

Ready to sell them. So why should you follow others? Why be careful? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you will follow the wrong ways of your predecessors, so completely and literally, that if they should go into the hole of a lizard, you too will go there.

00:45:18--> 00:46:04

And the companions asked Allah's Messenger Do you mean the Jews and the Christians, any who is it that you mean by our predecessors, and the Prophet sallallahu early send him said Who else meaning of course, them, meaning you will follow them, you will go after them, you will imitate them, and this is not the way of the believers any This is not the way of the sincere believers because in another Hadees, we learn that it is the evil among this oma who will follow the ways of those before them, the people of the book. So, we must be extremely careful, before we follow any trend, before we hold you know any opinion before we promote anything, whether it is about women's issues, or

00:46:04--> 00:46:54

gender issues, or it is you know, regarding dress or the concept of modesty, or food or gender interaction, etc. Let us check our religion first. Let us check ourselves are we conforming to the teachings of Islam? Or are we conforming to the ways of the people of the book? Who is it that we are truly following? So here we are being warned to be careful what k for tech furuno we're uncomplete la la comme IR to mA e Wi Fi comm rasuluh and how could you disbelieve while to your being recited the verses of Allah and among you is His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning you are Muslims who you have the Quran, you have access to the verses of Allah. You have the example

00:46:54--> 00:47:39

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his Syrah his life. And he why and how would you disbelieve? What kafer you see Kay for how this is for our job. This is to express amazement, that those who have access to all of this yet they disbelieve, they need their case is truly astonishing. Now, primarily, this is referring to the companions, because it was the companions who directly heard the verses of Allah being recited by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was the companions, among whom was the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But then this also applies to the rest of the Muslims, that even though the Prophet salallahu, early Islam is not

00:47:39--> 00:48:28

physically amongst us, his example is there, his sila is there, his Sunnah is there, his Hadith is there, and then the Quran, the verses of the Quran are there and truly, they are recited to us constantly, you know, in Salah, and, and otherwise, also, we get to hear the verses of the Quran. So how is it that we leave that and we turn to those who lead by their desires, any how, how sad it is that you have all of this treasure, we have all of this treasure, and yet we disregard that, and, and follow the ways of other people. And this is something that should really cause us to reflect on ourselves. That how well have I studied, read the book of Allah? How well have I studied and read

00:48:28--> 00:49:12

the way of the Prophet sallallahu? alayhi wasallam? the Hadees, the Syrah, the Sunnah, how much of the Quran and Sunnah have I learned how I studied, and how much of my time has gone into studying other things. I'm not saying that studying other things is wrong, it's fine. It's okay. But check yourself that how much you know how, how much of ourselves have we devoted to the book of Allah and the teachings of the messenger? sallallahu wasallam? And how much of ourselves have we devoted to other worldly things, worldly education, and when it comes to worldly education, and it's it's a known fact that this is not something that the Muslims have particularly excelled in. So when we're

00:49:12--> 00:49:51

studying any science, any matter, it is not, you know, the Muslims, their opinions and their researches, generally, that we are studying it is those of other people. It is not the principles that was established by Muslims but the principles that were established by other people that we're studying. Again, it's not wrong, it's fine. Because we're not being told over here to completely cut off from the people or the book we're being told if you follow some of them, not all some of them. But it but in this comparison, in this Iowa cave attack furuno Anton took laliga Maya to LA he will FICO rasuluh and he This should make us reflect on ourselves. That how much of our of our life is

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

connected with the Quran and Sunnah and how much of our life is connected with other things? What is our source of knowledge? What is our source

00:50:00--> 00:50:29

Have you know of guidance? What is it that we take as an example to follow? So, when they are testing biLlahi faqad hoodia, Isla Seraphim was the theme, then it is said and whoever holds firmly to Allah has indeed been guided to a straight path. And this shows us how important it is to hold firmly to Allah. How is it that a person holds firmly to Allah,

00:50:30--> 00:51:17

you hold firmly to Allah by staying connected with the verses of Allah because that is what is mentioned in this I thought La La comm is that listen to the verses of Allah stay connected with the Quran, and then what he called rasuluh second, being the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam how the stay connected with the Sunnah. Stay connected with his teachings, learn about the Syrah, learn about the Hadees learn these things directly. So when you hold on to the Quran, sooner you hold on to Allah and such a person then is who the Alaska author muster came, such a person is guided to a straight path. So remember, guidance on the straight path is not just, you know, knowing

00:51:17--> 00:52:04

what the straight path is, it is also staying on the straight path. And you can only stay on the straight path when you hold on to the means that keep you firm that keep you steadfast. The Prophet sallallahu earlier seldom said the rock to feed Come on rain. I have left in you two things, meaning I have left you with two things. lamentably Lu mathema secton be Hema you will never go astray as long as you hold on to them. And what are those two things Kitab Allah was soon that's gonna be the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when my yarraka sin biLlahi faculty who de la Seraphim was the pain and holding on to Allah is not just you know, but by

00:52:04--> 00:52:55

the study by the mere study of the Quran and Sunnah it is when you when you adhere to the Quran, when you adhere to the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when you when you worship Allah subhanaw taala when you follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that is how you practically hold on to Allah. Then it is said yeah, a U haul levina armano all you who have believed it the phala haka to party fear Allah, as he should be feared, what are some alternate in our unto Muslim own and do not die, except as Muslims. First of all we are told in this ayah fear Allah as he should be feared, have Taqwa of Allah, meaning go through your life carefully. Remember the taqwa

00:52:55--> 00:53:43

one of the companions is described as how when a person is passing through is going on a path that is surrounded by thorny bushes, then what would then a person will bring their clothes together, right and they will take each step carefully. So, the quad is about being conscious being aware of your surroundings, the quote is about guarding yourself protecting yourself and then keep moving forward. The core is not about doing nothing, no, taqwa is that you keep moving forward because you have to cross that path you have to go on this path you have to go through life, you have to you know go and work you have to go and study you have to go and meet with people you have to get

00:53:43--> 00:54:26

married, you have to you know, have children etc. You have to go through these different stages of life, you have to go to you know, different, you know, places you are going to be in different scenarios. The core doesn't mean that you avoid everything and you just stay at home. No, taqwa is that as you are moving forward in life, as you are going through different you know, situations you are, you know, you know, in different circumstances, you are aware of your surroundings, you know, what is a thorn and what is a flower, you know, what is dangerous for you what is beneficial for you, you know, what you have to avoid, you know, what your weaknesses are, you know, where you have

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

to, you know, guard yourself, protect yourself. So, sometimes the point looks like, you know, you have to lower your gaze, sometimes duck well looks like you have to be careful when you are speaking to someone because you know that they're irritating you, you know that they're getting on your nerves. So you really have to, you know, watch your temper, you really have to control yourself. Sometimes that means that when you are, you know, offered, you know, a very good deal but it involves interest. Then you remember, this is a thorn and you stay away. You guard yourself. You stop yourself over there. So yeah

00:55:00--> 00:55:19

Are you Hello Dina Ave it the cola haka to party fear Allah as he should be feared. So remember the tequila is that a person avoids sin and that a person fulfills their obligations. This is how a person guards themselves protect themselves from the punishment.

00:55:21--> 00:56:07

And then we also learn that a taqwa of Allah how katikati fear Allah is a should be feared. This means that Allah should be obeyed and not disobeyed, no matter what is going on, whether it is your wedding day, or it is your graduation day, or it is your first day at work, you know, first day at your new job, right? Remember, Allah should be obeyed over there not disobeyed. And that Allah should be shown gratitude to not in gratitude, this is also part of the to remember Allah usual thanks to him. And then he should be remembered and not forgotten. Don't go on through you know different situations in life as if you don't even believe in God stuff at Allah. Know, remember

00:56:07--> 00:56:51

Allah, whether it is that you are bungee jumping or you are, you know, going on a hike with your friends, whether you are on vacation, or you are, you know, at school at work, you're online, or you are with your family, Henny, you should live your life, remembering that Allah is there, remembering Allah is watching me. So be careful. Be conscious, it duckula Helga Ducati he remember the quad is important for every single one of us, every single one of us sometimes we are very, you know particular about our children being you know, you know, staying away from sin, but then when it comes to ourselves, we become very easy going. In the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says we're going

00:56:51--> 00:57:40

to assign a Latina author Kitab him in Cabo de como a year come and Tacoma, that a las panatela enjoying this on the people before us and also to us, that all of us should fear Allah. So the court is important for every single one of us. Whether someone, you know, prays in the masjid, you know, goes for Hajj, or, you know, they're an average Muslim. You know, someone is a Haffield. They have memorized the Quran, or they're just learning how to recite the Quran. Every single one of us is in need of taqwa. We have to observe the core, in all places, no matter where we go, at the mall, or at home, in every single place, whether it's a virtual gathering, or an in person meeting, the Prophet

00:57:40--> 00:58:24

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it dakila Haytham akhanda fear Allah no matter where you are, wherever you may be. The caller is supposed to be in private and in public. The Prophet sallallahu Urdu cinema advised a Buddha who speak a bitter koala, he feels silly amrik while Ania tea, I advise you to observe the taqwa of Allah, in your private affairs and in your public matters. And we should fear Allah as much as we are able to you need to the maximum capacity. And remember when a person has the power, then they become honorable near Allah in a chromosome or in the law he Arkham and the people of toccoa will be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hereafter. The Prophet

00:58:24--> 00:58:54

sallallahu earlier sent him said in Ola Naseby Alma Koon, the closest of people to me are those who fear Allah, men candle, whoever they may be, well, Hazel Kanu, and wherever they may be, and those who observe taqwa are the people who will enter Jannah of Buddha, it'll be a lot more and who narrated that the Prophet sallallahu Erlandsson was asked about the reasons which will cause people to enter Jannah meaning what is the most common reason?

00:58:55--> 00:59:40

What is the most common cause? That will, you know, be the reason for people to enter paradise? And the Prophet sallallahu earlier sent him said that the plot of Allah and good character, the Aquila, who has known her look, and then it is said what after mutanda illa, anta Muslim own and do not die, except that you are Muslims, except that you are in a state of submission. And this is only possible if we live our lives with the fear of Allah with the consciousness of Allah, because death can come suddenly, in fact, it does come suddenly no matter how prepared a person may be, how ready they may be, at the time of death is not known. The Time of death is not known. And we don't know when our

00:59:40--> 00:59:59

turn is coming. We don't know. Death is, you know, not just for those who are older. For those who are, you know, in palliative care, no death is four. It can come to any what any person at any time, those who are young, those who have just been married, those who you know

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

are at work those who are at home. We hear about these things all the time. So one atom Alterna in our anti muslim moon, how can a person in short that they die in a state of submission to Allah by living a life of submission to Allah, meaning every moment, a person is only in submission to Allah in either not doing something in disobedience to Allah. And then it is said where tousling will be heavily law he jummy are unwell after for Rocco is he we should also pray to Allah that Allah give me horsnell hotma Give me a good end any make my death good as well. Then it is said where towsley will be heavily ledger Miran well after for Rocco and hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together

01:00:44--> 01:01:30

and do not be divided. What is the rope of Allah, the rope of Allah is the book of Allah. It is the Quran. We learn, Abdullah Abdullah Mourinho said that this trade path is very busy, and the devils the shell clean, you know, come to it very frequently. Meaning on this trade path, the shell clean, calm, and they say, all servant of Allah calm this other way. Meaning when a person is doing something good shape, Han actively comes after him and says, Go go the other way, go do something else. So he said, Hold on to the rope of Allah. Indeed, the rope of Allah is the Quran. What does this mean? This means that we're constantly you know, in this life, we are constantly being tested,

01:01:30--> 01:02:16

right? And there are always invitations to sin. And you don't have to go outside of your house. Now, to be invited to sin, though you could simply be holding your phone in your hand and you could be invited to sin. So what is it that we have been told to remain firm on the straight path, to remain in submission to Allah, to continue to observe that the whole of Allah hold on to the rope of Allah, a rope that has been led down? Why in order to save you in order to rescue you? Imagine if you're falling. Imagine if you were in you are in a state like that. And somebody gives you a rope to hold on to what would you do? Would you leave it? No, you won't you know, that this is your source of

01:02:16--> 01:03:04

salvation. So the Quran is like that. It is your source of salvation. Your safety depends on it. Your life depends on it. So hold on to it with all your might, with all your strength, don't let go of it. The Prophet sallallahu earlier Selim said Kitab, Allah Azza wa Jalla, who are habit Allah, the Book of Allah, the Exalted is the rope of Allah, whoever follows it is upon guidance, and whoever leaves it is on misguidance the Prophet sallallahu releasing them also said, The Book of Allah is the rope of Allah, which has been led down from the sky to the earth. And he This is something that this book, Allah subhanaw taala has sent down to us from himself, why? To save us, to

01:03:04--> 01:03:49

protect us to guide us. So where it does seem, will be heavily hinged Amira, hold on to the book of Allah, hold on to the rope of Allah. And don't let go of it. Your connection with Allah subhanaw taala is through is through the Quran. Your steadfastness on the on the religion of Allah is through the Quran. As long as you hold on to the Quran, you will be on the straight path in sha Allah. And then it is said Jimmy on all together, meaning every single one of you, you should collectively hold the Quran, meaning not even one of you should leave it. This means that we should hold on to the Quran ourselves. And we should encourage one another, our family, our friends, to hold on to the

01:03:49--> 01:04:30

Quran as well to get connected with the book of Allah as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah likes for you three things, what are they, that you worship Allah and do not associate anything with him, that all of you hold on to the rope of Allah firmly, and that you're sincere to your leaders. And he when we hold on to the Quran, collectively, then this is something that Allah subhanaw taala loves. So we should check ourselves that as a family, for example, at home, do we collectively hold on to the Quran? And he do we make sure that the Quran is being recited by all of us, right? And this is something that we need to do encourage one another, right,

01:04:30--> 01:05:00

that, that spouses, you know, they're encouraging each other to recite the Quran, parents and children encouraging one another, reminding one another, to, you know, to recite more, to learn more. And then not just as a family, but as a community, you know, with your friends, with with the people, you know, with whom you pray in the masjid. Right. Why together because when you hold on to the Quran together then you are a source of strength for each other. And remember

01:05:00--> 01:05:42

That a believer is supposed to be a source of support for others anyway. And when collectively we hold on to the Quran, then this is a source of strength for for each individual. Because when we, when we hold on to the Quran together, for example, together we are reflecting on the Quran together, we are learning the Quran that we are weaker to remind one another, we get to correct one another, we get to help each other we get to cooperate with with each other in in doing good things. And also remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he had the law here our little jamara that the hand of Allah is on the jamara on the congregation, meaning when people are together

01:05:42--> 01:06:30

than the last panel thought his hand is on them, any they such people are truly blessed. And then we also learn well at the foreigner code do not become divided. We learned in the Hadees that algebra to rahima unity is a mercy will fit onto our dub and division is a form of punishment. So stay together hold on to the book of Allah and do not become divided. You see there will always be differences among people always. But differences do not mean that we get we become divided. Without the for Rocco, the people who hold on to the Quran, they will stay united when the Quran is more important to us than we will learn to you know, get past our differences. But when the ego is more

01:06:30--> 01:07:14

important than the Quran, then what will happen then there will be division, then there will be no compassion, then then there will be a constant effort to bring one another down and such people are removed far away from the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada melos panel thought to protect us with Kuroneko Matala, here Aleikum and remember the favor of Allah upon you in quantum order and for Allah verbena kulu become when you were enemies, and Allah brought your hearts together. For us back to him veneer Mati Juana, and you became by his favor brothers. Now this was revealed about the house and husband, right? The tribes of Medina, remember that before Islam, there were enemies to

01:07:14--> 01:08:01

each other, even though they lived in the same city. And any they were the same people essentially. But because they were from different tribes. They were constantly at war with one another, and they had great enmity and hatred for each other. And the conflict, you know, that that were that prevailed between them or were there for a very long time, many, many battles, many deaths, a lot of loss of, you know, life and property. And when they became Muslim, what happened? They became brothers for us, baton binaire Mati Juana, they became united, their relationships were now good with each other, they were no longer enemies. So they're told to remember that blessing of Allah on

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

them. And then we see that specifically through the prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. You know, their, their division turned into Unity, their hatred, turned into love, because now they had the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as a leader who unified them, and this was truly a favorable law upon the US and hesitant. And this is something that should again, make us reflect on ourselves. You see if the hearts are united, this is a sign of Allah's blessing on a people. And when the hearts are disunited, when people are not getting along with each other, whether it is coworkers, or it is people at home, then this is a sign that this group of people have been deprived of Allah's favor.

So ask Allah subhanaw taala for his favor and look into your life that what is it that I am neglecting? With regards to the you know, rights of Allah subhanaw taala because of which, perhaps I'm being penalized this way. Think about your duty to Allah. Are you fulfilling that? Think about your connection with the Quran is it strong and the result of that inshallah will be that you will have better relationships, there will be unity, but if there is neglect with regards to the right of Allah, and there is neglect with regards to the book of Allah, then there will not be any unity there will be this unity.

So the companions the people of Medina before the Prophet sallallahu are instead of migrated over there, and they were literally at the edge of a pit of the fire, meaning the only thing that was preventing them from falling

01:10:00--> 01:10:45

into hell fire was death. And what happened? Allah subhanaw taala bless them with Islam, and so they were saved. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, my example in the example of the people is that of a man who made a fire. And when it lighted what was around it, moths and other insects started falling into the fire. The man tried his best to prevent them from falling in the fire, but they overpowered him and rushed into the fire. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Now similarly, I take hold of the knots at your waist belts, meaning I try to grab you from behind you, in order to prevent you from falling into the fire, but you insist on falling into it. Allahu Akbar. So, when

01:10:45--> 01:11:24

when a person receives the guidance of the blessing of Islam, then this is this is truly a gift from Allah subhanaw taala. And so we should not take the Quran for granted we should not take Islam for granted we should not take the ability to worship Allah subhanaw taala for granted, we should appreciate these blessings and benefit from them. Maybe Allah subhanaw taala guide us all. inshallah we will conclude over here for today, and we will resume with the next verse tomorrow in sha Allah Subhana Allah Allah will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta as the hirokawa Tobu la wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
