Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish rocklea sadri were silly MD. workflow loksatta melissani yokocho Kali Allah along with the Colby was sad did listen he was rude Sophie moto Colby amin you're a bit odd I mean, inshallah we will continue with our study of pseudo tobacco and today inshallah we will begin from the third juice from IRA number 253. Allah subhanaw taala says tilka rusu lufa Guanabara whom Allah BB Min humann Kalam Allah waterfire Barba, Honda Rajat those messengers, some of them we cause to exceed others. Among them were those to whom Allah spoke to and raised some of them in degree. In the

00:01:34 --> 00:02:17

previous verses, we learned about how Allah subhanaw taala gave victory to the Bani Israel under the leadership of La Lu against their enemy dilute. And we also learned in those verses how Allah subhanaw taala caused the wood early his Salah, who was at the time an ordinary man, an ordinary soldier, to kill their enemy jackboot, when we learned that Allah subhanaw taala gave that with his Salaam Prophethood and wisdom and a lot of worldly power. And Allah subhanaw taala gave him special gifts, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is assured that we're in Mecca, laminal mousseline that you are indeed among the messengers, meaning even if people deny you, you are still

00:02:17 --> 00:03:03

a messenger of Allah. And now, a very important thing we learn about the messengers of Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala has given some of them preference over others, meaning Allah subhanaw taala gave certain prophets certain messengers, certain unique gifts and qualities, which he did not give to others. For example, the will the earliest Salaam, was given the ability to glorify and praise Allah subhanaw taala in a very beautiful way, so much so that even the mountains and the birds would, would respond to him meaning they would also repeat that the spear the glorification of Allah subhanaw taala when they would early Salaam made the spear, so here it is mentioned the ticker

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

Russolo Fabiola Barba whom I love about those messengers, some of them we cause to exceed others. The fact is that Allah subhanaw taala has created differences between his creation and these differences do not always mean that one is better than the other. But in some matters, this is actually the case where one creation has been given superiority compared to another one has been given what another has not been given, one has been given more compared to another and behind this distribution behind these differences that Allah subhanaw taala has kept within the creation behind this is of course, Allah subhanaw taala his decision, his knowledge and his wisdom. So this shows us

00:03:52 --> 00:04:39

that seeking a world where everyone is exactly the same is unrealistic, it goes against the very nature of this world. However, despite the differences, there are some things that we should remember. And what are those things? Firstly, we should remember that since Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has kept these differences, who has given one creation preference over another, then we must accept these differences, we must acknowledge them, we must not look at the creation of Allah subhanaw taala as if everything is exactly the same. We should not be for example, colorblind know Allah subhanaw taala has kept the differences and we should acknowledge those differences. Secondly,

00:04:39 --> 00:04:59

we must remember that since Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has kept these differences. It doesn't mean that we have the right to boast or belittle that if Allah has given us a certain blessing, because of that we should not feel arrogant because of the unique blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given to someone which

00:05:00 --> 00:05:48

did not go on boasting or belittling those who have not been given the same blessings. So remember that these differences are a necessary part of the world, not something over which we should create divisions, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself said, led to her Eurozone membranous ambia that do not give me preference over other profits. And you see if everything was the same, if everyone was the same, then things would be very, very boring. So the variety and the creation, what does that show? It shows us the perfection of the haluk, the the supreme creator, it shows us the power of Allah subhanaw taala. So here, the messengers have been mentioned that these

00:05:48 --> 00:06:33

messengers of Allah, some were given preference over others, meaning they were given unique gifts, and some were given more compared to others. So for example, we look at other ways Cena, Allah subhanaw taala created him by his own hand, we see no herlig is Salaam, Allah subhanaw taala describes him as other than checotah a very grateful slave. He was given a very long life. We learned about a YouTube or they set up a last panel tortoise called him sabbir on a patient slave near Malibu, what an excellent slave he was. So a man or a sinner, Allah gave him a kingdom that he had not that he did not give to anyone else. We learn about units or they get sent a unit study

00:06:33 --> 00:07:15

Salaam, he realized he had made a mistake he called upon Allah subhanaw taala. seeking His forgiveness, he said La ilaha illa Anta super Hannukah in the consuming of Bali mean. And in the end, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that any Muslim who calls upon Allah subhanaw taala by this surah then he will certainly be responded to we see Ibrahim our Lagos center allows Panther to call him his Helene, his friend, his marine early his Salah, he is described as what can our endora be Maria, he was very pleasing to his Lord, use of earning his son of the Prophet sallallahu early was in him described him as Al Karim, the noble one, ignore Kareem, the son of the

00:07:15 --> 00:07:57

noble one, ignore Kareem, who was the son of the noble one who was the son of the noble one, meaning the lineage of use of artemisinin is so noble when it comes to Musa alayhis salaam we learn what killam Allah moussaka calima Allah subhanaw taala spoke to Masada, his center, he started to set up, Allah describes him as what g Hanford dunya will offer honorable in the world and also in the hereafter. And when it comes to the last messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam truly Allah subhanaw taala gave him many privileges, many preferences over others, we see that he was a messenger sent to all people, whereas the previous messengers were sent to their nations in

00:07:57 --> 00:08:43

particular, the Prophet sallallahu, Urdu Sunday was the seal of all profits, the final profit, the last prophet and messenger, after whom no other profit is coming. And then we see he was sent as a mercy to the worlds and he was given the greatest miracle, the miracle of the Quran, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself said, that will live through our other ambia EBC that I have been given superiority over the other prophets in six matters. And he listed them of them is the fact that he was given the fact that the entire Earth has been made a source of purification, and a place of worship for him. And the fact that, you know, he was sent to all people, whereas the

00:08:43 --> 00:09:25

prophets before him were sent to their nations in particular, and the fact that he is the lust of prophets, and he and he mentioned the six ways in which Allah subhanaw taala gave him preference over the rest of the messengers. And we see that on the Day of Judgment, the Prophet sallallahu earlier said and will be say you do one or the other, he will be the leader of the children of Adam, he will be the first to be brought out of his grave, he will be the first to intercede. He will be emammal nabin. He will be the leader of the profits. They're their hot lead their speaker, the one who will initiate intercession, and he said well for her, and there is no boasting in this, he will

00:09:25 --> 00:10:00

be the first to cross the bridge, the first to enter Jenna, and Subhanallah, his Oba will also be the most numerous. But despite the fact that Allah subhanaw taala gave him all of these preferences. The Prophet sallallahu earlier send them said, Do not give me preference over the rest of the prophets, meaning do not go on belittling the other prophets in comparison to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He also said that no one should say that I am better than Yunus even Mehta meaning Yunus are they his center so

00:10:00 --> 00:10:43

Remember that the virtues the preferences that Allah subhanaw taala gave to his prophets to his messengers, we are supposed to believe in them, we are supposed to appreciate them. Not that we begin to pass our judgment and start comparing and saying that all this profit is better than that profit. And that Prophet is better than that one. No, we don't need to give such commentary. Allah subhanaw taala knows the privileges that He has given to his messengers, and that is sufficient for us. You know, our our judgment is not needed. Our commentary is not needed. What would benefit us is our faith. One of our about the home that Rajat and Allah subhanaw taala has raised some of them in

00:10:43 --> 00:11:30

degree, which shows us that the status of some prophets was greater than that of others. And the one the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sent them also went for the ascent the mirror Lodge. Then we learned that he met different prophets at different levels. What attain our Isa been Amalia Melba unity what a year the nahu biru * kudos. And we gave Risa the son of Miriam clear proofs, and we supported him with the pure spirit. So we see that he started his salaams example is given over here, that how Allah gave him clear evidences, the fact that you know, the very birth of SRT is set up itself was a miracle, you know, a means through which Allah subhanaw taala gave him preference over others. But

00:11:30 --> 00:12:17

then, in addition to that, almost punctata also gave him many clear proofs, proofs which showed that he was indeed a prophet of Allah. For example, the fact that he spoke in the cradle, the fact that he could heal the person who was born blind, and many other miracles that he performed, what a year to now who below him kudos, and we supported him with the pure spirit, and this is jabril. So jabril was his aide, he was his supporter, Willow shout Allah who moko Catalan Latina mimbar de him, member de magia at home will be Hina. If Allah had willed, those succeeding them would not have fought each other after the clear proofs had come to them, while lacking his stellar foo, but they differed from

00:12:17 --> 00:13:07

inhuman Amina women, human Kufa, and some of them believed and some of them disbelieved what is being mentioned over here, we are being informed that if Allah subhanaw taala wanted, he could have forced everyone to believe, meaning every messenger that came to his people, Allah subhanaw taala could have forced every people every nation to believe in their Prophet, but this is not the will of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala has given people choice to the ability to choose what they want to do. So for men whom an Amana woman human cover, and as a result of this free will that Allah has given to people, some people believe and others don't. They disbelieve, it is because of this, that there

00:13:07 --> 00:13:51

are divisions amongst people. And it is because of these divisions that are tying people even fight with one another. And if Allah subhanaw taala wanted, he could have forced everybody to believe so there would be no differences, no fights, no divisions, no wars, but this is not the will of Allah, for the people of the world. Remember that Allah subhanaw taala has created this world. Allah Palin's Allah has created people for what in order to test them to see who would believe and who would not to see who would do us an excellent deeds and who would turn away. So basically the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being consoled over here, that there is no prophet before

00:13:51 --> 00:14:37

you, whose entire nation believed in him at once. No, every prophet of Allah was such that some people believed in him and others did not. And the same is happening to you. While Oh sha Allah who mahkota Lu. And if Allah had willed, they would not have fought each other, meaning the people of the nations of the different prophets, they would not have found each other. When I came to La Jolla for Luma you read but Allah does what he intends. And this is what Allah subhanaw taala intended that people should have the choice to do what they want, and based on what they do, Allah subhanaw taala will recompense them. Now one thing that is being mentioned in this ayah again and again, if

00:14:37 --> 00:14:59

Allah will, if Allah willed and Allah does what he intends, so this is something important that we need to understand. What does it mean when we say what Allah wills and the will of Allah, what Allah intense. So the Arabic word for this is erotica, right erotic meaning intent. So remember that when Allah subhanaw taala intends

00:15:00 --> 00:15:46

Something, then this is of two kinds. One is irida konia, and the other is irata. shutter iya Illa. konia is what Allah subhanaw taala intends with regards to, you know, worldly matters or the creation in general. This is basically the decree of Allah, which certainly comes into effect. And this includes matters that he likes and also matters that he does not like. So for example, Allah subhanaw taala decrees He wills, that someone should die, or that someone should be in an accident, or that someone should suffer from a certain illness, or that is live should go through a certain pain through some difficulty. So remember, that these are matters which always happen meaning

00:15:46 --> 00:16:31

because Allah subhanaw taala has decreed them, they will certainly happen. And it doesn't mean that Allah subhanaw taala loves these matters, he likes these matters. And it doesn't mean that if these matters happen to someone, so for example, someone is getting sick, or someone is recovering from an illness, it doesn't mean that the servant is liked by Allah, or that Allah subhanaw taala does not like this particular individual, these are worldly matters. And these happen to all all creatures irrespective of their piety, irrespective of you know, their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala but the second type of era, the era the shutter iya This is the commands that Allah subhanaw taala

00:16:31 --> 00:17:19

has given any the orders that Allah subhanaw taala has given to us, and these are orders or commands, matters which Allah subhanaw taala loves, meaning he wants us to do these things. And only those people are able to do them who have the tofik from Allah subhanaw taala. So we must remember that everything that happens in the world, yes, it happens by the will of Allah. But it doesn't mean that a loss penalty loves it. No, he has given people the freedom to choose what they want to do. And based on what they choose, they will be recompensed. Yeah, you have levena Manu unfill Kumar was upon outcome, all you who have believed spend from that which we have provided for you, meaning all

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

believers, out of the things that we have given you, out of the blessings that we have given you the different provisions that we have given you spend from them, don't just keep everything, don't hoard everything. Don't just use everything no spend on others. Also, why spend for your future for your eternity, because Minh company and yet to yo mala Bay are on fee when a whole Latin one as well as shafa. Before there comes a day in which there is no exchange, and no friendship and no intercession, meaning this life that you're living is not going to last forever. These things that you have these provisions that Allah has given you, you're not going to have them forever, you have

00:18:05 --> 00:18:48

them for some time. So don't just be concerned about how you can use and enjoy them right now. Think about your future. Also, you see, this is something that any intelligent person thinks about that if they have money, they think about how they can invest it for their future, for their retirement, for their children, for their grandchildren. Why? Because they know that while they have a source of income right now, while their financial condition is very stable at the moment, it doesn't mean it's going to stay like that forever. So, just like that, prepare for that day, for the Day of Judgment, on which you will not be able to engage in any trade, there is no bayar, there is no trade, meaning

00:18:49 --> 00:19:33

you cannot use your money on that day to get certain benefits in this world if you are in trouble. What is it that you use your money in order to bring yourself out of difficulty or in order to gain the benefit that you want? Then we see that on the Day of Judgment there is no hoonah either what is hula hula is the highest level of love, the highest, the strongest level of love and friendship that can exist between two people. So on the Day of Judgment, no one is going to be of benefit to you. Meaning in this world, what happens is that, you know, people who are very close to you who love you, they're willing to even, you know, offer a transplant, right? If you need a kidney, they will

00:19:33 --> 00:19:59

offer that they are more than willing to make a sacrifice in order to help you in order to save you. But on the Day of Judgment, no one is going to come you offering their blood or offering you know an organ, nothing like that is going to happen. no in fact people are your best friends are going to be avoiding you running away from you. Your own family is going to be avoiding you. So prepare for that day. And then there is no chef

00:20:00 --> 00:20:45

are either no intercession even intercession shofars advocacy so no one is going to advocate for you. All of that is going to happen when Allah subhanaw taala allows and if Allah subhanaw taala allows it for certain people. So Aren't you going to do something for that date Aren't you going to spend right now so that you you are protected on that day so that you have some provisions for that day. So spend of your wealth right now give yours a cat and give yours a cattleman, I'll give you as a cattle fitter, give for the sake of Allah, give for his curb, spend on old hair, you know, the best days in the world are the best, the greatest day of the world is coming up yo now have the day

00:20:45 --> 00:21:34

of sacrifice. So offer old Hey on that day, give sadaqa these days are such that, you know, a good deed that is done in these days, his most beloved to Allah Most rewardable so give in these days, so give why for your own benefit. In a Hadees we learned that all son of Adam, if you spend the surplus, it will be better for you. And if you retain it, it will be bad for you. Meaning when you give, you're only going to benefit yourself while caffee Runa Houma lolly moon and the deniers they are truly the wrongdoers. Those people who deny are truly wronging themselves. They are presenting themselves for harm on that day. So don't be in denial of that day, believe in it. But then don't

00:21:34 --> 00:22:22

just say you believe in it, show it as well with your actions, show it as well by the way in which you use the resources that Allah has given you. Now I could see, I also could see, remember it is the greatest verse of the Quran. When a man asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that au I attend filco ne RM? Which verse of the Quran is the greatest the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied it is Allahu La Ilaha Illa who will hire a young letter hoodoo sinner to Allah No. Meaning ayatul kursi Why is it the greatest? It is the greatest verse because it describes the greatest one. It describes Allah subhanaw taala as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this idea to

00:22:22 --> 00:23:05

cut the soul Melek it sanctifies it declares the purity of the sovereign meaning of Allah subhanaw taala and because of this reason, this idea is also a defense against shaytaan we learn in a Hadees of a hora de la Mourinho was appointed to guard certain property overnight, and we learned that someone came and began stealing it in the night so we would I don't know the law more on who he he caught the thief. And the thief begged him and said Please let me go. He made many excuses abou hora de la Mora who let him go, but this happened for a few days in a row. And then finally, a Buddha. I don't know the Longhorn, who said I'm not going to let you go this time. And then that feves said,

00:23:05 --> 00:23:48

that I will tell you something, which if you do, then you will have a guardian from Allah to protect you all night. that feeds said that whenever you go to your bed, recite ayatul kursi for then a guardian from Allah will be guarding you, and shaitan will not approach you until dawn. So the next day abou Reto de la Mora, who mentioned this to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu. Earlier Salim said he told you the truth, meaning that thief told you the truth, even though he is actually a liar. And that thief was who it was actually shaytaan himself. So she thought he himself gave this out. That if you recite ayatul kursi then what's going to happen if you

00:23:48 --> 00:24:33

recited at night, then you will, you will be protected all night long shaytaan will not be able to come near you. So I too could see is a defense against shaitan. So this is why we should recite it in the morning. We should recite it in the evening. We should recite it at night, we should teach it to our children, and we should also recite it after every Salah as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that whoever recites either could see immediately after each file the prayer then there will be nothing standing between him and his entering paradise except death. Meaning if a person dies, then they will enter Jannah so what is ayatul kursi ayatul kursi is Allah who loves La Ilaha Illa who

00:24:34 --> 00:24:59

Allah the ayah begins with a small janella with Allah subhanaw taala is named with the Greatest Name and this word itself is a very powerful blessing a word we learned about our customer a big rahbek the name of your Lord is blessing. Ne it is full of goodness it is full of blessing. How that when you take the name of Allah

00:25:00 --> 00:25:45

When, for example an animal is being slaughtered, then the meat of that animal is lawful for consumption. And if Allah subhanaw taala, his name is not taken, then the meat of that animal is not lawful for consumption. It is the mention of Allah's blesseth name that makes the meat of the animal lawful. It is the mention of Allah subhanaw taala, his powerful name blesseth name, that becomes a source of protection for us against shaytaan. We learn in a Hadees that the screen between the eyes of the jinn and the nakedness of the children of Adam, when one of them removes his clothes is to say, Bismillah meaning when you say Bismillah, then shaitan is not able to see you shaitaan is not

00:25:45 --> 00:26:35

able to harm you. When you say Bismillah as you enter your home shaitan is not able to enter your house, when you say Bismillah before you eat before you drink, than shaitan is not able to participate in the food that you're eating and drinking. So Bismillah In the name of Allah, when you take the name of Allah, then this is your protection, against shaytaan against harm and danger. So look, this ayah begins with the isml July Allah Allah who is Allah, He is Allahu La Ilaha Illa who he is the one who is such that there is no god worthy of worship, except he, there is no deity except Him. Why? Because he is the only God as we learned in the Quran, the valley can be an Allah

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

who will help. The fact is that it is Allah who is unhealth who is the truth, meaning he is the only true God. What a pneumonia the rune I mean, dooney He who will Boulton and whatever else that people call upon besides Allah, it is actually false hood and it is not actually God, it is not worthy of worship. So La Ilaha Illa, who there is no god except Allah. And this means that it is only he who is supposed to be worshipped. It is only he whom the creation turned to with love with neediness with reverence, he is the one on whom the creation depends on. So there is only one God what Isla, who can Isla, whom were head. And since there is only one God, this means that we should only

00:27:27 --> 00:28:15

worship Allah, as we learn in the Quran in the knee and Allahu La ilaha illa Allah forbidden he, Allah subhanaw taala said to Musashi Salaam, that indeed it is I Allah, there is no god worthy of worship except I therefore worship me. Meaning when Allah is the only god This means that we worship only Allah, we learn the Hadees that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that ma'am in a hidden Yesh hadoo Allah ilaha illa Allah wa unnormal hammer the rasulillah say the common call be Illa her mama hula who are linen, there is no person who testifies sincerely with his heart, that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, that

00:28:15 --> 00:29:03

except that Allah who will save him from the fire of *, meaning when a person says this with his heart, with belief, with sincerity, with knowledge, then such a person will be saved from the fire of *. So La Ilaha Illa. Allah is a fact that we should believe in it is a fact that we should have knowledge of because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Mamata wahiawa Yara level anahola illa Illa. Allah, the halal Jana, whoever dies while he knows that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah, then such a person will enter Paradise, it is because of this a man that a person will eventually be brought out of *, meaning if because of some major sins, a person falls into *,

00:29:03 --> 00:29:58

then because of their amen in La ilaha illa Allah, eventually they will be taken out, even if that man is very little, even if it is, as we learn in the Hadees the weight of an atom, meaning very, very tiny amount. So when there is no god worthy of worship, but Allah when he is the only God, then we should worship only Allah. And what's the evidence that La Ilaha Illa who the evidence is that he is a high yield to you, he is a Hey, the ever living a you the Sustainer of all existence, he is a Hey, the name and hey, denotes the fact that he is perfect in all of his attributes. And the name kalume denotes the fact that he is perfect in all of his actions, how and he means the ever living

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

meaning the one whose life

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

is coming, meaning perfect, which means that he always was alive, he is and he will always remain, meaning he doesn't have a beginning or an end, which means that there is no one like him, who will Hey you La Ilaha Illa who and as we learn in Hades can Allah willamina convey in vital there was Allah and there was nothing else besides Him, meaning he always was and he will always remain, how will he always remain, because he is perfect in himself, he is perfect in all of his qualities, all of his attributes, he does not suffer any decline, while low higher on what other car, he is best and ever lasting. So, he is perfect in every way, in his power, in his knowledge in his hearing in

00:30:52 --> 00:31:45

his seeing in his goodra any and every way, he is perfect. Therefore, what the look cooler than Hey, EULA the layer mode, put your trust in the EverLiving one who does not die. So, he is a high and he is a young alpha, you meaning he is self subsisting. So he does not need any support, because he is extremely independent, he doesn't have any needs. Rather, he is such that everyone and everything entirely, completely depend on him, which means that if he did not support them, if he did not maintain them, they wouldn't exist. If he did not create them, if he did not will, that they should exist, if he did not allow that they should breathe, that they should have oxygen, then they would

00:31:45 --> 00:32:39

not be able to survive Subhanallah any out our lives, our forms are so fragile. And the only way that we can exist is if Allah subhanaw taala makes us exist if Allah subhanaw taala enables us to exist. And if we don't get to breathe for a few minutes, we would die. If our lungs are working, but we don't get oxygen, then again we would die. If our heart does not pump just one muscle, we would die. So we are entirely dependent on Allah subhanaw taala. And remember, that, you know, we are existing, we are alive, because of so many factors because of so many things that Allah subhanaw taala is causing to happen in every single moment. So Allah subhanaw taala is a You are the one who

00:32:39 --> 00:33:31

is maintaining every single creature, which means that if he would not maintain them, if he would not provide for them, they wouldn't exist at all. So the fact is that the creation cannot be a you. Why because we depend on each other, we need each other, only Allah is a you, he is free of need, and he is the maintainer of all. He is independent of all as Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, yohannes and Tamil fukada illa Allah or people, all of you are desperately needy, poor, before Allah will Allah who will hernial Hamid and Allah He is the one who is truly the ever rich free of need ever praiseworthy. So we see over here, that Allah is and how you look are you and remember that and

00:33:31 --> 00:33:52

how you are you are also very powerful Names of Allah subhanaw taala by which we should call upon him. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned regarding our last panel thought his greatest name is Willa Hill, our alum. And we learned in the narration that these names are in Surah Al Baqarah, earlier Iran and

00:33:53 --> 00:34:37

so one of the one of you mentioned that I searched for Islam is Mullah Harlem in these three sutras. And I found that these names are actually how you look a young because these names are mentioned in in all of these sutras and then we see that whenever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would be in some kind of distress, he would say yeah, hey, you you're uh, you better have medical histories or ever living also stater of all I beseech you by your mercy, meaning you are all powerful, you are all perfect in all of your attributes you are ever living and you are independent of all everything depends on you. I depend on you. Yeah, Allah I need you. So the Prophet sallallahu Urdu some would

00:34:37 --> 00:34:59

say this at a time of distress. He even taught his own daughter father model the long run how to say this in the morning and the evening. What he or Hey, you hear a young, dramatic story delete a slightly shut Nicola who will after kill de la nfcu porfa terrain, that all ever living or Sustainer of all, I beseech you by your mercy

00:35:00 --> 00:35:51

Correct all of my affairs and do not leave me to my soul for even the the blink of an eye, meaning for the shortest moment even do not leave me to the whims of my soul. Because if I were left to the mercy of my soul, then I would actually harm myself. So your Allah you protect me from even the evil of my own self. So Allah La Ilaha Illa who he is and how you're a human, and he is such that letter who the who sinner to Allah known, neither drowsiness overtakes him nor sleep, he does not get drowsy and he does not even he and he does not even sleep. Now remember that sinner that is mentioned over here that hoodoo sin atone similar is sluggishness or yawning, it is the initial

00:35:51 --> 00:36:42

stage of slumber. And no is when when someone eventually sleeps. So Allah subhanaw taala does not even get sleepy, sleep does not overcome him. Why? Because he does not need rest. He is an Hey, that ever living he is aka you, the one who does not have any needs. He doesn't depend on anything. He is a way that ever strong he's a disease the ever Almighty, He is an 18. So, the so Allah subhanaw taala does not need any sleep at all. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the law has the agenda lejana mu, Allah the Exalted does not sleep and it does not befit him, that he should sleep. So Allah does not get tired, he does not sleep, which means that he is always available,

00:36:42 --> 00:37:29

there is nothing that is difficult for him. So call upon him, call upon him again and again. He's listening lahoma for his summer worth, you wanna fill out, Allah is such that To Him belongs whatever is in the skies and whatever is on the earth, whatever is in the skies, meaning whatever is above us, whatever is in the earth, meaning whatever is around us and below us. So whether it is the higher world or the lower world, everything, Allah subhanaw taala owns it. So remember, everything besides Allah is owned, is is the creation of Allah. And Allah subhanaw taala is the one who owns it all, as we learned in sort of medium in collusion for some are working well on the Inner Earth, your

00:37:29 --> 00:38:19

money or other there is nothing there there is nobody in the skies and the earth except that they will come to the Most Merciful as a slave, meaning all of them belong to Allah, there in his domain. So it is up to Allah, whatever that he wants to decide concerning them, or order them to do and he has no share in this regard whatsoever, as weird and suitable for con en la de la who will cause sumati will, he is the one to whom belongs the dominion of the skies in the earth. So everything belongs to a love everything is in his control. Instead of Zoomer is 67 we learn one or the other Allah hackery will undo germier and Kabbalah to hooyo multi Yama was similar to moto iya to be a

00:38:19 --> 00:39:08

meanie. On the day of judgment, the entire earth will be in his grasp, and all of the skies will be rolled up in his right hand. So everything is in his grasp in his his in his control. And the fact is that no one else has this power besides Allah in sorbitol Merida is 76 we learn a terrible Dune I mean dunlea Himalayan licola can burn well enough. Do you worship besides Allah, that which does not have the power to harm you or to benefit you? Meaning Why do you do that? They're not actually God, Who is God? It is Allah, Allah who was severely arleen. It is Allah, to Whom belongs everything in the heavens and the earth. He has the power to bring benefit to cause harm and to also protect his

00:39:08 --> 00:39:53

slaves from harm, and he owns all the provisions so he gives what he wants and he withholds what he wants instead of Eunice i a 31 we learn cool Mayor Zuko, convenor summer he will have who provides you from the sky and the earth amazingly cool summer I will have Assad who has the power over your hearing and your vision any of he wants to take away your ability to listen your ability to see what could you do when you read you will hear human and my youth who brings out the living from the dead well you could it will make you terminal Hey, and who brings out the dead from the living will pay you the bill um, who is it that regulates all matters for say a cool lunula they will say it is

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

Allah And yes, it is Allah. So then for call a fella taco, tell them we'll we'll use

00:40:00 --> 00:40:56

Fear Allah, any when everything belongs to Allah, then do you not have fear of Allah? Do you not have shyness before him? manda lovey Yesh for or in the who Ellerbee Edney who is it that can intercede with him except by his permission, Allahu Akbar, who can even speak before Allah, without his permission, this is his power. This is his control. Remember, Allah alone is Maliki yo muddied the Sovereign of the Day of Judgment. And this is why our main concern should be to please Him, because this world and the hereafter all belong to Allah. No one can even speak before Allah without his permission. Everyone is a slave before Allah, in need of Allah, powerless and week before Allah,

00:40:57 --> 00:41:48

yar Allah Ma Ma baina ad him woman hall for whom he knows what is presently before them, and what will be after them. And he Allah subhanaw taala knows everything about everything. He knows about our present, and he knows about our future and our past. He knows all times and he knows all places, and he knows all actions that we do. He knows what we reveal, and what we conceal. Because his knowledge is camel, it is perfect. His knowledge is shamel it is all inclusive, Nothing escapes it. Allah knowledge is perfect, free of any error. It is complete free of any deficiency, as musala his Salaam said, layer Li Lula be well I answer my Lord does not make a mistake nor does he forget

00:41:48 --> 00:42:38

because he knows everything. Intro to tala i a 12 we learn Allah who led the Hello cassava. So my wealth in wamena are limitless Hoon yet unnecessarily. I'm Robaina hoonah litella mu n Allah Allah Kohli Shea in perdere. What an Allah How can I help a bit cliche in Elma. Allah has encompassed everything in his knowledge, so he knows what is before us, what is behind us. And this means that there is nothing that exists in the sky or in the earth except that Allah knows it. Allah, Allah tells us in sort of a hedge, i a 70 alarm, Tara lamb and Allah Yara level, my first summer he went out in the valley, Kofi Kitab, in the valley current Allah He a seed, do you not know that Allah

00:42:38 --> 00:43:22

knows whatever is in the sky, and the earth, all of that is actually written. And all of that is actually very easy for Allah. He doesn't just have knowledge of everything. He has also recorded everything. He has also preserved everything in writing, and that is not difficult for Allah. So whether something goes into the earth or comes out of the earth, whether something ascends into the sky or descends from the sky, whether something comes out of our heart, or goes into our heart, Allah subhanaw taala knows about it. So let us be conscious of Allah. Let us mend our affairs with Allah. Because not even the tiniest of things is hidden from Allah. As we learn, that he knows what

00:43:22 --> 00:44:08

is in the in the land and also in the sea. And there is no leaf that falls except that Allah knows about it. And there is no grain in the darknesses of the earth, nothing fresh or dry, except that it is preserved in a clear record. Almost a panel thought his knowledge is so perfect. He knows everything, even before it comes into existence. He even before it is created, even before it is born, Allah subhanaw taala knows about it. And what we don't know Allah subhanaw taala knows that what we cannot know Allah subhanaw taala knows that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the keys of the unseen are five, and none knows them, except Allah. None knows what is in the

00:44:08 --> 00:44:56

womb, meaning no person knows what exactly is in the womb of a mother, whether she is carrying something or not. And what is it that is in her womb? Is it a human? Is it a fetus? Or is it some? Or is it a cancer as girls? Any What is it? Nobody knows except Allah subhanaw taala and if it is a fetus, how many 123 only Allah knows. And then what is the gender and and and what is the name going to be? And and and what are the actions going to be any all of this is known only to Allah. And then the second thing is that none knows what will happen tomorrow except for Allah. The third is that none knows when it will rain except Allah. The fourth is that none knows where he will die, except

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

Allah meaning only Allah knows where each person is going to

00:45:00 --> 00:45:51

And the fifth is that none knows when the hour will be established except Allah. So we are helpless. We are powerless and Allah subhanaw taala is all powerful with all his knowledge. When are you here Puna be Shea mineral me he Ellerbee Masha, and they encompass not a thing of his knowledge except for what He wills. So remember, all knowledge is with Allah, which means that no one can learn anything except what Allah subhanaw taala lets them learn what Allah subhanaw taala enables them to learn, he encompasses everything and knowledge, and we can barely know about something when he lets us know about it, when he teaches us meaning even when we come to know of something by Allah's

00:45:51 --> 00:46:35

permission, that knowledge is also incomplete. It is still a very tiny fraction, the Prophet sallallahu earlier seldom is told in the Quran, where Allah Command and Conquer Allah. Allah is the one who has taught you what you did not use to know, the angel said Larry Milena inla miralem Tana, we have no knowledge except the knowledge which you have given us. So what do we know? Our knowledge is within the knowledge of Allah. Think about all the knowledge that human beings have from the first human to the last, whether it is about their personal lives, or something that they witnessed something that they realized through observation and through contemplation and through studies and

00:46:35 --> 00:47:25

through research and through reading, whatever means, who is the source of that knowledge, it is Allah subhanaw taala and all of that knowledge that people have, what is it, it is within the knowledge of Allah, as a leader said to moosari Sam, that my knowledge and your knowledge compared to the knowledge of Allah is just like a drop compared to the ocean, the drop that a bird can take out of a body of water, any something so small, so insignificant. So, let us remain humble. And let us not feel arrogant because we have studied a thing or two, because we have researched a matter or to know let us always remain humble before Allah, that he or Allah, I don't know anything except

00:47:25 --> 00:48:17

that what You have taught me and what Allah subhanaw taala knows is so much more. So let us remain humble. And let us not now you know with our knowledge begin to challenge the commands of Allah and act as though we know better. And secondly, this also means well are you here Tony Shea Minar in me in lobby Masha, that people cannot encompass anything of his knowledge, meaning about him, other than what Allah subhanaw taala lets them know. Meaning we can only know about Allah what Allah allows us to know. We can only learn about Allah what Allah teaches us, because led to the Ricoh will absorb, vision cannot perceive him. So how could we know about Allah? We can only know anything

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

about Allah, his names, his attributes, how? By looking at what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed. So as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said under command at Nita Island apsic you are as you have praised yourself. And this also shows us that we should not go on forming opinions about Allah based on our own whims and imagination, that I feel like this, or I think like that, or so and so said this, and so and so said that, no, Allah subhanaw taala is as he has described himself, so if we want to know who Allah is, let us learn the Quran. Let us learn what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us about Allah was jarocho to see you who somehow what he will have. His

00:49:01 --> 00:49:54

courtesy extends over the heavens and the earth. His call to see has the capacity for the skies and the earth, meaning it has encompass the skies and the earth within them. Any US currency is so vast, it is so huge. And what is the currency? The currency is not the throne. It is different from the throne in fact, it is smaller than the throne. The throne is the biggest creation of Allah. The next biggest creation is the curacy. And how vast is this currency? In a hadith we learn that all of the skies compared to the Kuru sea are like a ring in a desert. Just think about it. A ring, a small ring thrown in the middle of a desert and is there even any comparison over here? What would be the

00:49:54 --> 00:49:59

ratio any there is no comparison. The The ring is so small

00:50:00 --> 00:50:54

And just like that, and the entire universe that we know of the skies, all of them compared to the curtsy are so tiny honey, this just shows us who we are what we are, how tiny and significant of a creation we are. So what befits us is only humility and surrender to the Lord of the worlds. What are your Buddha who have a logo and their preservation tires him not you see at the zoo is when something becomes burdensome, when something becomes heavy, to carry very tiring and exhausting, not difficult, but tiring. And this is something that happens over time, that you might not find that a certain weight or task is difficult for you, it is doable for you. But over time, you begin to get

00:50:54 --> 00:51:42

tired. So you need to break even for example, when it comes to listening, the act of listening itself is not difficult or painful. You don't have to do anything. But over time, we need to break even in listening, we need silence we need quiet. So this is the weakness of off human beings of the creation, that we get tired over time. But Allah subhanaw taala does not get tired over time. When I get older who have lahoma their preservation, any preserving the skies and the earth does not tire him. He is constantly preserving them, constantly protecting them. And this shows us that the very nature of the skies and the earth is that they need guarding, they need preservation. Meaning if

00:51:42 --> 00:52:24

Allah subhanaw taala would not guard them. If Allah subhanaw taala would not protect them. They would cease to exist, they would perish. So remember, creating the skies on the earth did not tire Allah subhanaw taala as we learn that will occur Calacanis sumati will Alomar Bina whom if you sit at a Yamin warm, I'm a tsunami lube, that certainly we created the skies and the earth and whatever that is between them in six days, and no fatigue touched us, Allah subhanaw taala did not get tired. And then looking after the skies and the earth, preserving them also does not tire him as his origin. And so the Prophet sallallahu earlier send them would say, Allah, Allah can hand and the ke

00:52:24 --> 00:53:18

musawah it will early woman fee him that Oh Allah for you is all praise. You deserve all complete perfect praise, because you are the PI him, the maintainer of the skies and the earth. So when I owe the who have lucuma wahoo Allah Allah EULA, Aleem and He is the Most High, the most great to more Names of Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in ayatul kursi He is an early allele meaning he is the ever hi how in his that, first of all, in his being, meaning he is above the creation, so everyone in everything is below him. We see that he sent down the revelation Allah spawn tada and zillah he sent down the revelation which means that he is above the creation, he is above the ocean. So muster wa

00:53:18 --> 00:54:03

Allah Ouch, he rose above the Throne. And when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam tested that girl to see if she was a believer or not. He asked him, ain't Allah sorry, he asked her that ain't Allah Where's Allah? And she said, for some in the sky meaning above us, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding her, that she is a believer. So remember that Allah subhanaw taala is literally meaning he is high, he is above his creation, and he is an early meaning he is high in his attributes, in his attributes also, which means that there is nothing like him. Lisa cometh cliche for dial Allah who further Allah on my you shikun Allah subhanaw taala is above all that they

00:54:03 --> 00:54:52

ascribe to him. So anything that you can think of about Allah, Allah is above that he is allele and he is an alim, he is ever great. He is ever great how in his that in his being, he is greater than all and also in his, in his attributes. He is greater than all we learned in the DA garble bar rhodiola and who said that had it not been for some words which I said, the Jews would have turned me into a donkey meaning with their magic. So what is it that he said to to protect himself? He said, I used to say the words or rules will be wedgie healer, healer Aleem and Lady lays a shade on our other men who will be Kelly Mattila hit Mattie let Elijah was una Barun will FRG Ron will be a

00:54:52 --> 00:54:59

Smith Illa Hill her snarkily her ma Lim to mean how am lm RLM min. Shirley mahalo Cabrera weather

00:55:00 --> 00:55:44

Very powerful draw. It's been reported in water in my mallet, and it means I seek refuge with the immense face of Allah. We went to Hilah Hill alim, the great the ever great face of Allah I seek refuge in that there is nothing greater than and with the complete words of Allah, which neither the good person nor the corrupt can exceed, and with all the Most Beautiful Names of Allah, what I know of them, and what I do not know from the evil of what he has created and originated and multiplied, meaning I seek Allah subhanaw taala is protection from any evil. So, we should call upon Allah by these names and Ali alim. I know her these we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:55:44 --> 00:56:29

said to our little de la Mourinho that celena teach you words, which if you were to say them, you would be forgiven, and these words are La ilaha illa Allah will Halle mill Karim La Ilaha Illa ma hula le EULA Aleem there is no god worthy of worship except Allah. Allah is a haleem the forbearing al Karim the noble, he is La ilaha illa Allah He is allele and Arlene the Most High the most great Subhan Allah here are busy my work is summary What are biller? Oh Sheila Aleem al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen even when going to bed, there is a there are in which these names are mentioned and that there are is La ilaha illa Allah Who is the hula shriek Allah Lowell ma ko Allah who will hand

well who are equally Shay in Kadir la how Hello La quwata illa Billah Hill Ali healer Aleem Subhan Allah will hamdulillah Willa ilaha illAllah who Allahu Akbar the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to said that whoever says these words when going to bed that all of his sins will be forgiven, even if they are like the foam of the seat. So remember Allah subhanaw taala is literally so everyone is below him, he is Aleem, so everyone is small before him Subhan Allah He will be handy Subhan Allah healer Aleem, then it is said la equal haffi Deen there shall be no compulsion in the religion. Why? Because the bayona rush to mean lie. the right course has become clear from the wrong

00:57:18 --> 00:58:04

even our best little deal on more on who reported that, that amongst the Arabs, there was a custom that when the children of a woman, meaning in the times of joy helliya did not survive, meaning if it so happened that every time she had a child, the child would die, then she would take a vow, she would make another you know she would take an oath that if her child survives, she would raise him as a Jew. Why? Because according to the Arabs any at the time, it was the People of the Book Who were you know, knowledgeable who were supposed to be, you know, people of religion. So she would you know, take a vow that you would convert her her child into a Jew. So when we learned that, after

00:58:04 --> 00:58:41

Islam, there were some children of the unsavoury of the people of Medina, who who had been raised as Jews as as people of the book. So they said we are not going to leave our children, meaning we will we will force them to accept Islam, they must accept Islam. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed this idea that like Rafi Deen, there is no need to force people to accept Islam, there is no compulsion in the religion. Why? Because compulsion is needed. When when people are not convinced of the truth of something

00:58:43 --> 00:59:10

or when they know that it is wrong. So that's not the case with Islam. Islam is perfect, it is true with all of its evidences. So if someone accepts Islam good for them, it is their privilege that Allah subhanaw taala has guided them to accept the truth and if someone rejects it, then it only shows their ignorance their own lack of understanding. So, by no rush demeanor lay the right course has become clear from the wrong

00:59:11 --> 00:59:59

for my year corbetta hooty when you mean Billa so whoever disbelieves in pa hood and believes in Allah, then such a person for cordis thumbsucker biller otowa till willscot lanphier sama Lucha wala who Samir on earline such a person has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it, and Allah is Ever hearing and ever knowing. So here what is mentioned is that first of all, it No one needs to be forced to accept Islam. Why? Because Islam is evidence any it's its truth is evident. So if anyone accepts it, good for them, and if anyone does not, then they're only causing harm to themselves. So who is the person who is truly fortunate? Who is the person who is

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

on the path to success, it is the person who Yuk photobooths the Houthi, where human Billa two things are mentioned. Firstly, he disbelieves in thought, and secondly he believes in Allah. Yes, on the one hand, we have to deny, we have to reject what is untrue. And on the other hand, we have to believe in we have to accept what is true, both are necessary. So, what is the whole remember that the root, the word root is derived from Julian and Julian is rebellion. So, the fact is that everything besides Allah is Maha Luke, right? It is created. It is a slave to Allah. It is owned by Allah. It is in need of Allah. It is completely entirely dependent on Allah. So Abraham explains

01:00:52 --> 01:01:44

that tahu is kulu matter Jr. was a beloved who had the home Mr. Boudin oma to bring on mortarion it is any slave that rebels from its limit of servitude to Allah, whether it is that it becomes an object that is worshipped or followed, or obeyed, instead of Allah, meaning, that when it creature is is treated as God it is worshiped besides Allah or it is obeyed, in contradiction to the command of Allah, it is followed in contradiction to the command of Allah, then such a being is what it is the hoots and it will claim further explains that there are many fo r leads, but there are mainly five heads, meaning there are five main Kahoot What are they? Firstly, it believes because please,

01:01:44 --> 01:02:30

certainly has rebelled against Allah. And he calls people to his own worship, meaning he calls people that they should obey Him and disobey Allah subhanaw taala. Secondly, the oath also includes any slave that is worshiped besides Allah and it is pleased with that. Any, for example, a person whom people prostrate to Subhan, Allah, people will even go and make such that to and to a human being. And that human being is perfectly fine with that. So that is also a hoot. Thirdly, anyone who calls people to its own worship. Fourthly, anyone who claims knowledge of the unseen And fifth, anyone who gives judgment that contradicts the law, that Allah subhanaw taala has revealed. So what

01:02:30 --> 01:03:02

do we learn here that we are supposed to reject thought who would not believe in it, and nor accept it? And you notice how one of the thought is the one who claims knowledge of the unseen and this means This also includes, for example, someone says, you pay me I will do staccato for you. And I will tell you, what is good for you and what is bad for you know, they're claiming knowledge of the unseen, they're claiming something that is, that is only Allah subhanaw taala does, you know, right, or, or or in his power.

01:03:03 --> 01:03:55

Likewise, if someone says that they can predict your future for you, they can tell you what's going to happen, and this could be done in a number of ways. So, anyone who claims knowledge of the unseen then this is also Kahoot. So we should reject such such things, not fall prey to them, and then human Billa believes in Allah. So such a person fucker, this thumbsucker billet roadwatch till was called lungfish Hamada. Such a person has grasp the most trustworthy hand hold any such a person has his thumb sucker, his thumb sucker is too clutch, you need to grasp with, with all of one's might, in the in the most with the most strength. It's like as though a person is falling, how would they

01:03:55 --> 01:04:44

hold on to something with dear life? So it's thumbsucker Bill arola Tosca roadwatch. is a latch handhold and and was the most strong and trustworthy one, the most reliable one the most secure one that will not break it's unbreaking. So strong is it that lungfish formula, there is no break in it, meaning it will not even crack because it is unbreakable. So what is this firm handhold this firm handhold is Islam. It is Islam is the religion of Allah. It is the religion taught by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam that Allah subhanaw taala revealed on his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a Hadees we learned Abdullah bin Salaam Isla de la Mourinho, he mentioned his dream to the

01:04:44 --> 01:04:59

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in his dream he saw that he was holding on to a handhold and and there was nothing else beneath him now. And the Prophet sallallahu earlier said and told him that that rule word that you were holding on to that is Islam, so hold

01:05:00 --> 01:05:51

Hold on to it until you die. He said for odawa to Islam that was the handhold of Islam. So this shows us that a belief is not just, you know, some feelings in your heart, the path to success is not just, you know, saying that I love God, or saying that, you know, you should just be a good person you should just be giving you know, positive vibes and you should always be you know, thinking, good and positive and be kind and all of that, yes, all of that is excellent. But what is that means that will, that will take you to success that will bring about your salvation. That means is the handhold of Islam, and who is the person who is holding on to this handhold this rodilla the

01:05:51 --> 01:06:35

person who believes in Allah, who denies Allah who's such a person is upon Islam, and Islam is something new from from this description over here we see that Islam is something that must be held on to meaning it is not always easy to cling to the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah. There are times when it can be very, very difficult. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu Arneson have advised that hold on to it with your molders with your molders meaning with the best of your strength, even when things could really really hard, but you must cling to it, you must hold on to it because this is your only path to salvation. If you leave this path, you will not be upon

01:06:35 --> 01:06:36


01:06:37 --> 01:07:25

Allah who will lead you levena amanu Allah is the ally of those who believe how you hold your home in a lumati. Eleanor, he brings them out from darknesses into the lights. Allah is the friend of who of those who believe he is their protector, he is their ally. Remember that Allah subhanaw taala Yes, he is the Mola he is the protector of his entire creation. As we learned in the Quran in surah Yunus I have 30 that what we'll do in Allah himolla who will help that they meaning all people will return to Allah who is their true Mola. Right? So the fact is that Allah is everyone's molar. But there are people who get Allah subhanaw taala those special wilaya special friendship and

01:07:25 --> 01:07:58

protection, which means that they receive the love of Allah, they received the support of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala takes care of them. Allah subhanaw taala rectifies their affairs, he is Especially Merciful towards them, he does not abandon them. Rather, he is always guiding them, helping them. And this is only for those who believe. Because we're Allahu aliy. You mean? Allah is the friend that ally of the believer is will know who will you will move to clean. Allah is the ally, the friend of those who fear Him.

01:08:00 --> 01:08:45

And we learned well who is the one lasala hain, Allah befriends the solly hain, the righteous of his slaves. So when Allah is the ally of those who believe, then remember that Allah will be their ally in this world, and also in the next world. In a Hadees we learned that there is no servant, whom Allah subhanaw taala is an ally to in the world, and then he will hand him over to someone else on the Day of Judgment. No, that's not going to happen. Meaning if Allah is a friend to someone in this world, he will be his friend in the hereafter as well. And this is what the 99 parts of his mercy are reserved for meeting for his Olia for his friends. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst his

01:08:45 --> 01:09:31

Olia. So what so what is the benefit over here? Allah Willie you Latina Allah know when Allah is the friend of those who believe. Then what happens? You heard you may know guru Murthy Illa. Note, he brings them out of darkness into light beating he ensures their guidance. He gives them light, which light the light of EMA and of knowledge of clarity. Remember that there are three main darknesses there's three main lumads The first is the Luma of ignorance, of lack of knowledge, when a person does not know. And in that ignorance a person is in confusion going randomly here and there. Then there's the darkness of disbelief. And then there is the darkness of disobedience of fisc of

01:09:31 --> 01:09:47

disobeying Allah soprano Carla. And in contrast, there are three lights, there is the light of knowledge, there is the light of Amen. And there is the light of the color of piety of the fear of Allah. So when a person

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

believes in Allah when a person denies the falsehood, and he holds on to Islam at all costs, then what happens? Allah subhanaw taala is the outline of

01:10:00 --> 01:10:43

Such a person, which means that every time that a person goes through some darkness, Allah subhanaw taala will bring them out, Allah will guide them towards light. So Allah subhanaw taala will replace their ignorance with knowledge. Allah subhanaw taala will replace their doubt with the pain with conviction. Our last panel title will replace their confusion with conviction with clarity, unless panel title will help them leave their sins and become more righteous, become more obedient. Allah subhanaw taala will give them the ability to stay away from sin to stay away from what is unlawful and do what the last panel Tata has commanded them to do to perform good deeds. So Allah

01:10:44 --> 01:11:21

to you redo Mina guru Mati Illa node, he brings them out of darkness into light, when levina kifaru but as for those who disbelieve Olia, omoto, hood, who's there allies are actually thought, and what happens when their allies are thought would you redo in a home in a naughty in a womb that they bring them out of light into darkness, meaning once upon a time they were in light, but what happened because they befriended the thought root, they come out of light, and they end up in darkness, because they, they,

01:11:22 --> 01:12:11

their, their, their grasp of Islam, they let go right focal distance a couple of world war two was but they're no longer holding on to Islam firmly, right, when their grip becomes weak, when their grasp becomes weak, when their a hammer becomes weak, when they become shaky, then what happens is that the thought would lead them astray. They take them out of light into darkness, hula ecosse, horrible naughty home fi her Holly Dune, those are the companions of the Fire and they will abide eternally. They're in remember that there are remember that when it comes to guidance, when it comes to hedaya There are three types of hidayah or three stages of hedaya. The first stage of hedaya is

01:12:11 --> 01:13:00

he Daya is shared that a person is given that a person is given knowledge and guidance and direction as to what is right and what is wrong, what Allah has commanded and what Allah Subhana Allah has forbidden. The second level of hedaya is he Daya of tofik that after knowledge, now a person even has now a person has the ability to do what Allah subhanaw taala likes to actually bring that knowledge into action. And this happens only by the dough feet of Allah. And the third level of guidance is hedaya test beats. And what is that that a person becomes firm, consistent, and stable and steadfast, not that they become, you know, shady, and sorry, shaky, and then they become

01:13:00 --> 01:13:54

unstable and inconsistent, and eventually they quit. So, so all of these stages are necessary. And this means that we must seek desire guidance, first and foremost, and keep asking the last panel Tara for that guidance. And if we, if we become weak, whether that is in our knowledge or in our action, then remember that the thoughts are many, the darkness is great, and the danger is great. So protect yourself, save yourself, hold on to a rule where tools are at all costs. And keep asking Allah subhanaw taala for guidance, and never do anything that will that will make that that will deprive you of Allah subhanaw taala is wilaya keep asking Allah subhanaw taala for his friendship,

01:13:55 --> 01:14:40

hula equals harboe natrium Fie her Holly don't, because it isn't clarified over here, that those who go from light into darkness than such people will be the inmates of *, and they will abide there in eternally. Now there's an illustration of how Allah subhanaw taala is the Willie, the friend of those who believe how he guides them, how he brings them out of darkness into light. The first example the first story that is given and then thought about either levy had Ibrahima fear or be an utter hula, hula mulk. Have you not considered the one who argued with Ibrahim about his Lord? Why? Because Allah had given him kingship. It is said that this was an improved Allah subhanaw taala gave

01:14:40 --> 01:14:59

him kingship. He was a great king, a very powerful King. And because of that, what did he do? He argued with Ibrahim or any Salaam about Allah, about the existence of Allah. So what happened in color in color, Ibrahim, Robbie, a lady you're here where you meet when you brought

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

him said, My Lord is the one who gives life and causes death. What an excellent evidence. Ibrahim already said I'm give that Allah is the one who is the source of life, and he is the one who gives death also. So if anything is alive, it's because Allah created it. So he basically said that Allah subhanaw taala is the cause the reason behind all of this existence, Allah, Allah or he will meet that king. He said, I am the one who gives life and who gives death. And it has said that he had to have his prisoners brought and one he spared and the other he killed. So he said, Look, I give life I control life, I control death. Ibrahim RSM didn't argue over there because clearly, the man was

01:15:44 --> 01:16:29

shallow in his knowledge. Carla Ibrahim offer in the La Jolla tiba Shem, * and machete fat TBM in a Muslim fabu heater lady Kufa. So Brahim already said I'm sad Indeed, Allah brings up the sun from the east. So you bring it up from the west. So what happened? February tala de Kufa the disbeliever was overwhelmed. He was speechless. He was shocked, dumbfounded. He didn't know what to say, when la hula de como, el amin, and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. So we see over here that this incident illustrates the belief in the existence of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is the first step. This is the foundation of guidance that first and foremost a person believes that

01:16:29 --> 01:17:18

there is God. And what is the and what is the proof of that the proof of that is that if there's anything living, if there's any, any life, anything that exists, well, where did it come from? Where did this earth come from? Any we know the things don't happen randomly, things don't just appear out of nowhere. Everything exists because it came from somewhere, there is a cause. So if we were to go back to the cause of the of this entire existence, this beautiful creation, which is not random, it's by design, then that cause, right, who was it that caused all of this that brought all of this into existence? That being is Allah, He is God, He is the one who we worship. He is the one who owns

01:17:18 --> 01:17:23

everything, and he is the one who, who deserves that we worship Him.

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

Another evidence of this is the fact that Allah subhanaw taala. I mean, the fact that a lie exists, is the fact that that the sun any comes from the east, right, it rises from the east, meaning all the changes that are happening, whether that changes big or small, there's someone who is causing all of that to happen. So who is that being? That being is Allah subhanaw taala he, he is the one who created the heavens and the earth, and he is the one who causes the night to overcome the day and he causes the day to overcome the night and these are all evidences of the existence of God. The next story illustrates belief in the power of God. So it is said oh can lead the mandala Allah

01:18:10 --> 01:18:56

creating what he how we are to know urrutia Allah, you he had the healer who BARDA motiva or consider such an example, as the one who passed by a township which had fallen into ruin, it is said that this was relayed earlier his center and he was passing by this town. And it was such that the entire town was in ruins, meaning the entire population had been destroyed. No sign of life, no people living over there. But the houses were there, empty, desolate walls had fallen ceilings, you know, the roofs had fallen, any It was very obvious that once upon a time, this place was inhabited by people. It was full of life. But now that place was empty. So when he saw all that death and

01:18:56 --> 01:19:47

destruction, he wondered Allah, Allah you he had the Hila who BARDA mo Tia he wondered that how will Allah bring this to life after its death? And he he wasn't wondering, how is it even possible, but he was wondering the nature of it, that when when there is death and destruction at such a large scale, then how will this entire population be brought back to life? Anyone they died such a long time ago? How is it possible to find their remains in all of this mess and decay and ruin? So as he was wondering, what happened for him at the hula who made a Domine sama Bertha, so Allah subhanaw taala caused him to die for 100 years, and then He resurrected him he revived him. After 100 years,

01:19:47 --> 01:20:00

Allah come lavista and then Allah subhanaw taala asked him that How long have you remained here? The man said otter the best to Yeoman overblown, he said I have remained here a day or just a part of a day. Not very

01:20:00 --> 01:20:49

Long Kala Bella Vista Miyata Rahman, Allah subhanaw taala said rather you have remained here for 100 years from La Isla Tamika sharabi, Colombia to Santa. So take a look at your food and your drink. It has not decayed. Any your food and drink has not changed with time. It has not gone stale or become moldy. One little ila haemolytica wehlener jelica Iota, Lynas and look at your donkey and we will make you a sign for the people one lol lol elomi k for non Shizuka through Monique suhaila and then look at the bones of your donkey how we raised them and then we cover them with flesh follow Matt obey yen Allahu Allah, Allah and Allah Allah Cooley Shay encoded and when it became clear to him, he

01:20:49 --> 01:21:36

said, I know that Allah is over all things competent. And the in the story we see basically what happened is that it is said that this was relayed early histogram. And when he saw that entire town, a the entire population had died. He wondered how will every single one of these people be resurrected? And and this was out of curiosity. And he really wanted to know, he was not debating over here. He was not denying over here. He was wondering, but we see how Allah subhanaw taala brings clarity and guidance to the people who seek guidance to the people who want guidance. So what happened almost prarthana caused him to die for 100 years. And then during that time, we see that

01:21:36 --> 01:22:13

the man's food and drink remained exactly as it was unchanged over time. And what happened to the donkey the donkey died. It's it had turned into bones. It was decaying basically. And then the last panel tada and he mentioned this to him that look your food and drink is right there. Now food Okay, it's understandable food. Okay, fine. It's amazing that it did not, you know, decay, but drink, any drink is something water or any other form of drink any you you would expect that it it would, you know, evaporate over time, but it was there.

01:22:14 --> 01:23:00

And then we see that the donkey Allah subhanaw taala resurrected the donkey, before him any the bones and the flesh and everything, he made a presenter listen and witness all of this by, you know, with his own eyes. And, and so he said that I know that Allah is over all things competent. So there's a number of things we learned from this. First of all, this incident illustrates to us the power of Allah subhanaw taala. Remember, it is not enough for us to believe that God exists. It is also necessary for us to believe that almost prenyl Tada has the power to resurrect the dead, and he will resurrect the dead. The the Day of Judgment is true. The accounting before Allah is true, it is

01:23:00 --> 01:23:48

happening because Allah subhanaw taala did not create all of this world and this life and everything in vain. There is a consequence to all of this. So believing in Allah and believing in the last day, both are essential. Both are primary pillars of faith, you could say. And then we see in this in this example, the power of Allah subhanaw taala, that we believe that God exists, and we also believe that God is all powerful. He is La Ilaha Illa who, and he is a high yield to you. And only when a person believes that God is all powerful, can they actually believe in Allah? Can they actually believe in God? The reason why many people doubt the existence of God is because they don't

01:23:48 --> 01:24:37

understand who God is. They when they think of God, they think of the creation, they think of the limitations of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala is above those limitations. So Allah subhanaw taala can resurrect what he wants, when he wants, he can give death when he wants and he can bring to life what and when he wants. So he is such that and Allah Allah Alisha in Cadiz, the fact is that Allah is over all things competent. And then we also learn in this example about how it is important for us to always ask from a place of faith, from a place of genuine curiosity. Whenever we find something difficult to comprehend, let us not come with arrogance that Oh, how come it's like this

01:24:37 --> 01:24:59

and how come it's like that. But you know, this is what studies show and this is what science shows and this is what you know happens in the in the animal kingdom. Don't Don't go on bringing your little knowledge challenging God's commands, know, Allah subhanaw taala he is all perfect, so be humble before him.

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

And when you have a question, when you are wondering about something, then yes, wonder, ask, but always from a place of faith and a place of humility, and a place of genuine curiosity. What if Allah Ibrahim will not be at any k for two, he'll melta. A third example is given over here and mentioned when Ibrahim Ali said, I'm setting my Lord, show me how you give life to the dead. So we see that now, first is the example of Nimrod, right? Who came from a place of arrogance and denial. Then was the example of Zadar who said, I'm looking for a place of faith, of course, but from place of curiosity. And then we see the example of Ibrahim or his center, who wanted to increase in his

01:25:44 --> 01:26:29

conviction. So, you see, there are levels of faith, right? Or there are levels there are people who deny there, there are people who barely believe there are people who yes who accept, then then there are people who have knowledge. So increase in your faith increase in your understanding why you call Abraham or be at any kafer to *, Mota. So by hearing, listen, I'm saying, My Lord, show me how you give life to the dead. Meaning Give me the ability to see it happen with my own eyes, I want to see it. Allah, Allah to mean Allah subhanaw taala asked him, Have you not believed Ibrahim Erna Salaam said, Allah Bella, well, aculeata my inner calbee? Yes, of course, I believe, but I asked

01:26:29 --> 01:27:23

only that my heart may be satisfied. So the reason behind this request was not doubt. It was not how a resurrection would be possible. He wasn't wondering, no, he wanted to see with his own eyes in order that his heart may be completely satisfied. The thing is that your pain, any conviction, even or, or knowledge or faith has its levels? One is that you know something you believe in something because you have heard about it, right? Someone someone reliable has informed you. And this is really a pain. The other is, I know your pain that you are you believe in something because you have seen it with your own eyes, you have firsthand, you know, experience and in terms of in terms of

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


01:27:25 --> 01:28:12

And the third is how can your pain to be to have absolute conviction, because now you have experienced it yourself. So for example, a person may have heard that a certain fruit is bitter, right? Why? Because they read it in a book. And then they see with their own eyes that someone is eating it and they're making these weird faces, right? So it's very obvious that that that what they're eating is bitter. But then when a person eats it themselves, and they realize Yes, it is actually bitter. This is any, as we learn in Hades, that laser have a local Marina, that hearing about something is not like observing it and experiencing something yourself is not even like

01:28:12 --> 01:28:33

observing it. Right? When you experience it yourself. When you witness something with your own eyes, the level of your faith, your conviction, it increases. So even with root rhodiola Mourinho said earlier, Keanu alima, new Kullu that your key in conviction is actually faith. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for your pain.

01:28:34 --> 01:29:18

And we should we should seek your pain by increasing our knowledge by increasing our understanding. And by always asking Allah subhanaw taala for guidance, because when a person has a pain, then their sins will be forgiven. When a person has a pain, then they will be admitted into paradise. So Ibrahim on has said I'm asked Allah for Roberto minified, Allah subhanaw taala said take for birds for solar hoonah la cathedrale Allah Cooley, Jubilee Min hoonah Jews and then commit them to yourself, meaning tame them. And once you have tamed them, then you should slaughter them and put on each Hill a portion of them some other ruhuna and then you should call them yet Tina casaya they

01:29:18 --> 01:29:59

will come flying to you in haste. We're alum and Allah her Aziz and Hakeem and you should know that Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. And it's amazing when a person has tamed a bird that even when they're outside if they call their bird, their bird will come to them, even though their bird has the ability to fly away. But because the owner who has tamed the bird is calling the bird the bird will come flying. Why? Because the bird knows that this is my owner, right? This is the one who will give me food. This is the one with whom I am safe. This is the one whom I trust. So boy, he ran his center and was told that train the birds first team them and then slaughter them and put their

01:30:00 --> 01:30:48

You know pieces of their flesh on different hills, and you will see that they will come to you running, rushing, when you will call them. Right. So what does this show this shows that even if any, this was of course, a miracle that happened to Ibrahim or Islam, this wouldn't happen to you or if if we, if we were to do this, but what this incident illustrates is first of all, that even if the remains of a person are scattered all over the earth, it is not difficult for Allah subhanaw taala to bring them together, it is not difficult for Allah subhanaw taala to resurrect the dead, it is not, it is not hard for Allah in Nevada and Allah he has seen this is easy for Allah. And then

01:30:48 --> 01:31:38

what this incident illustrates also is that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created the creation, Allah subhanaw taala owns them, Allah subhanaw taala has, has created them on a fitrah where each creature and every body knows that Allah is the Creator. So when the last panel Tata will call them, Why will they not respond? They will respond. This is the nature on which Allah subhanaw taala has created the creation. So this incident again, what does it illustrate the evidence of of the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is all powerful, and that he will certainly resurrect the dead. So these are two matters that we must believe in with absolute conviction, the oneness of Allah, and

01:31:38 --> 01:31:40

the certainty of the Day of Judgment.

01:31:41 --> 01:32:31

Now, Allah subhanaw taala says my fellow Latina Yoon acuna am Wella, home feasability lahaie, Kamath, le Hubba. When a person believes in Allah, when a person realizes that the that the return is to Allah, when a person realizes that Allah is the one who has bestowed so many favors on me Everything I have is from Allah, then that person strives to earn the approval of Allah, then a person's tribes to obey and worship Allah soprano thought and then a person's tribes to do something for that day, when no trade, no friendship, no intercession is going to help. So all those deeds is to spend for the sake of Allah in the cause of Allah. So the example of such people is given a loss

01:32:31 --> 01:33:04

Panthera says methylone lilina. The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, what is their example it is chemically herberton It is like a seed meaning a seed of grain, what kind of seed of grade um, but that sub rasa Nabila frequently some bulletin may have to have been, which grows seven spikes, and in each spike is 100 grains, will Allahu yubari Fuli mania Sha, and Allah multiplies his reward for whom He wills.

01:33:05 --> 01:33:10

Willa, who is here on our team, and Allah is all encompassing, and knowing

01:33:12 --> 01:34:01

this is the example of the people who spend in the cause of Allah. What does it mean by that to spend in the cause of Allah feasable Allah, it is to spend for the religion of Allah, for the pleasure of Allah for the cause, that Allah subhanaw taala likes. And we see from this example, that when a person spends in this cause, then the returns are on limited. Remember, that when you spend in the way of Allah, then that money is not going into some black hole? No, that money is actually being invested. It will continue to yield, multiplied returns. We see over here that Allah subhanaw taala grows the good deed for its dewart Allah subhanaw taala grows the charity for its giver. So

01:34:01 --> 01:34:53

when you spend even a hubber, even a grain, meaning even $1.01, whatever big or small, amounted maybe that last panel title will cause it to multiply. So one will turn into 700. And each of those 700 has the potential to become even more to grow even more Subhan Allah. So remember, that in our heads, we learned that when a person gives even a date, any a date fruit, something so small, Allah subhanaw taala can make it as big as a mountain. You bring one good deed Allah subhanaw taala will multiply it many times over. So it is the quality of those who believe those who believe what do they do? They spend their wealth in the way of Allah. And when they spend their wealth in the way of

01:34:53 --> 01:34:59

Allah. Their reward is massive. Why is it massive? Why is it

01:35:00 --> 01:35:48

Unlimited, because the impact of such a charity is massive, and at times it is unlimited. You see, one form of charity is that you, for example, buy some food for a person who is hungry and that is excellent. You buy food for them, you feed them, their, you know, they are extremely grateful you feel, you know, a sense of accomplishment that you know, you you help someone and insha Allah, your reward is with Allah. And in sha Allah, you hope that Allah subhanaw taala will not leave you hungry or in need, when you are in a situation like that, that you helped someone. So Allah subhanaw taala will help you, you help the slave of Allah, and Allah subhanaw taala will help you on the Day of

01:35:48 --> 01:36:37

Judgment. All right. But then the other is that you spend on the religion of Allah. So for example, you spend on let's say, on an app, right, which is being developed for put on learning for, for instance, right, you spend on, you know, purchasing some books you spend on, you know, some publications. And what happens as a result of that. What happens is that people get to learn who Allah is, because of those publications because of because of that app. People get to learn what the Quran is, people get to learn how they're supposed to worship Allah. Now, what are they going to get out of that knowledge? Are they going to get one meal that's going to satisfy them at one time? No,

01:36:37 --> 01:37:22

if they learn how to recite the Quran, then what does that mean? Every single time they're reciting the Quran, let's say for the next 30 years, guess what, you are getting rewarded for it as well. If they learn how to pray Salah, and they praise Allah for the next 4050 years, guess what, you're also getting a portion of that reward. So think about it, when you spend for the religion of Allah hynny This is the best use of your money. This is the best investment that you could ever make. And a person who spends in the way of Allah, we learned that such a person will be called from all the gates of Paradise, meaning they will be invited from all the gates of Paradise to enter Jannah. And

01:37:22 --> 01:38:08

remember that the way that Allah subhanaw taala has superiority over his creation, spending on the religion of Allah also has superiority over other causes. So this is the most often the most superior form of charity, the best form of charity, the Prophet sallallahu earlier seldom said that of losada Carty, the most virtuous of all charities is lufa slotland feasable illa is to give the shade of attempt in the cause of Allah, honey, even if it is a tent, and umbrella that you're giving to someone who is in the way of Allah. So for example, someone's going for hedge, someone's going for a minute you give them you give them an umbrella, right? Or you are you you spend on you know,

01:38:08 --> 01:38:50

you give a donation for, you know, a Masjid, that is renovating their roof. So this is what you are providing shade for people who are in the way of Allah. And then he said, A giving a servant and the cause of Allah. And he at that time, yes, you know, the people had helpers, etc. And even now, in different parts of the world, this is the case, but any means of facilitation that you can give for those who are in the way of Allah. The other day I happened to be in a Masjid and I didn't have a prayer rug. And here in the mosques, the case is such that if you want to pray, you have to bring your you have to register and you have to bring your prayer rug, and I didn't have it. So that meant

01:38:50 --> 01:39:39

I could not enter the mosque I could not pray. So I was turning around in order to go back to my car. And so panela on the way I saw a whole stack of prayer rugs that someone has, you know, had given as a donation. So all you needed to do was just to take that prayer rug, you use it but you have to take it along with you any any kind of assistance that you can give for people who are in the way of Allah or riding camel in the cause of Allah is this is the best form of charity. So the result the impact of this is truly far reaching. It is endless. You don't know how far your charity will go. So think about these causes of charity. Don't just Yes, absolutely. You should give for you

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

know, to relatives to people in need. But don't limit your charity to that diversify your charity. diversify it give to all different causes. And then it is said alladhina Yoon feel Kona Amala Hoon feasable illa so Malaya to be Runa Ma and for Coleman and Weller other those who spend their wealth

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

in the way of Allah, and then do not follow up what they have spent with reminders or other injury, any yes we should spend in the way of Allah. But there's some etiquette here also. And what is that etiquette that when we give for the sake of Allah and His approval, then let us give it only for his approval. Don't Lord over people afterwards, don't keep reminding them that remember the donation I gave for you know the the project that you are working on? Do you remember I helped you in that cause I helped you in this cause, and then other others to cause injury to hurt. So don't do that. It those who spend their wealth purely for the sake of Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala is praising

01:40:45 --> 01:41:32

such people over here lahoma jus marinara be him Hola, hola, la him? Well, Ahuja has an own, they will have their reward with their Lord and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve, because they did not put others in fear, they did not cause sadness to others. So Allah subhanaw taala will also protect them from fear and sadness and regret on the Day of Judgment. So it is important that we know that we do not hurt the feelings of the people whom we spend on, we should remember that if we manage to spend on someone, they have actually helped us. Why? Because if the money was sitting with us, then what good would would it be, it's only a means of reward for you,

01:41:32 --> 01:42:13

when you're able to spend it on someone when you're able to give it to someone as charity. They have cooperated with you by accepting your charity. So don't think that they have done that that you have done a favor to them. The fact is that you are being favored through them. What is the reason? Why is it that we remind people of the favors that we have done them, because we want to get more out of them. So Allah subhanaw taala says, well, atom noon, stuck there, do not show favor in order to increase any Don't, don't remind people of the favors that you have done so that now they owe it to you. So now they're also doing favors to you, and you can get advantage of them. Because a person

01:42:13 --> 01:42:56

who does this than such a person is hated by Allah, we learned the Hadees that there are people whom you can share with whom Allah Allah subhanaw taala hits them, and of them is a person who ulma nano, that what valva hilman nanba he'll stingy. On the one hand, a person is stingy. And secondly, when they give, if they ever give them they keep reminding of the favors that they have done others. So there's severe punishment for this, we learned the touch people have lost puntata will not even speak to on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala any he does not like this behavior at all. And there is deprivation from paradise for a person who behaves this way. So remember that this is an

01:42:56 --> 01:43:36

attitude, reminding people of the favors that you've done them. This doesn't happen in a vacuum, there are many other diseases associated with this, it happens because the person was not sincere. It happens because a person you know gave their charity in order to show off it happens because now a person wants to take advantage of others. It happens because of you know lack of faith it happens because of piano because of lack of mercy, lack of compassion, lack of gratitude, and either as many illnesses combined over here, then it is said oh Luma roof on one Murphy rotten Hiraman solder cotton yet baru her other wala hula Nian haleem kind speech and forgiveness are better than charity

01:43:36 --> 01:44:26

followed by injury. And Allah is free of need and forbearing Willa hula knee Yun haleem So, we see over here that if a person is not able to give sadaqa then what should they do? They should give a kind word why because while calima to playbar to sadaqa, a good word is a charity. And also they should give forgiveness meaning they should forgive people overlook their mistakes. Sometimes what happens is that we do people a favor, and then when they when they do something that annoys us, we remind them of the favor that we have done them. Instead, what is better is if we forgive them, and and what is even better is that any we we give without reminding them off favors. So when you give

01:44:26 --> 01:44:59

Don't, don't follow it up with reminders of favors. And when you give and people you know annoy you, forgive them, say a kind word that is better than a charity that is followed by reminders, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that well Kali Mata Eva to set up a good word is a charity, which means that if we cannot be generous with our money, this is another scenario. If a person does not have money to give, then they should show generosity to people through intangible means and how

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

Start with kind words with forgiveness. The Prophet sallallahu earlier sentim said it the coonara will be shipped kitten rotting for a lamb 32 fabric Halima tin for yerba. Save yourselves from the fire, even if it is with half of a date. And if you don't find that, then with a good word, what does this show this shows is that when we give charity than we're actually saving ourselves from the fire, we are, we are doing ourselves a favor. So don't think that you're doing others a favor. And when a person does not have money to give, then it doesn't mean that they give nothing. No, give what you can, even if it's a smile, meaning don't come in front of people, all grumpy, and annoyed

01:45:44 --> 01:46:28

and angry. No, come with a pleasant face, as we learned in a Heidi's that do not look down upon any good work. And when you speak to your brother, show him a cheerful face, this is also my roof, and protecting people from your own harm. This is also a form of charity. And if if you're not able to give than being silent over there, that is also a form of charity. And it has said over here that Allah is lynnie haleem, Allah is rich, he doesn't need your charities, he's given you an opportunity to give. So don't think you're doing others a favor, and Allah is haleem him is to not punish even when one is able to punish. And him is to delay giving, you know in giving consequences to someone.

01:46:29 --> 01:47:12

So a person who reminds others of the favors that he has done them is actually worthy of punishment. But Allah subhanaw taala is haleem. So he gives people the chance to realize their mistake and to repent, to make amends. And then very clearly Allah subhanaw taala tells us yeah, you are Latina, amanu la tuba three Lucidchart party con bill money while other all you have believed do not invalidate your charities with reminders or injury. Meaning if you remind people of the charity that you've given them, and you keep hurting them because of that, you think that now you can say whatever you can treat them however, then this is something that would invalidate the reward of your

01:47:12 --> 01:48:04

charity. And the example of such a person is kalevi, Yun filco Mela, who are a nasci what are you mean Oh Billa he will yo mill acid. It is like that of the person who, who only spends his wealth to be seen by people and does not believe in a lion the last day who is this a hypocrite because a hypocrite does good only to be seen by people. And a hypocrite does not truly believe in a lion the last day. So we see over here that the person who reminds people of his charity is like a hypocrite like the one who gives to show off bear the same How are they the same, because the objective is the same self exaltation, the objective is not the pleasure of Allah. And we see that such a charity

01:48:04 --> 01:48:05

will not bring any reward to a person.

01:48:07 --> 01:49:00

So, so what is the example of such people from other Luca methodius have won in LA he to Robin for our Saba who were belong Fatah Raka, who salda his example is like that of a large smooth stone upon which is dust and it is hit by a downpour that leaves it bare. So, such a ground where you know the ground is such that it's basically just a thin layer of dust on a stone, what will it grow, it will grow nothing. And if there's rain, then what is it going to do that rain is actually going to wash off that that dirt that dust. So, what this means is that the charity of such a person is of no avail to him on the Day of Judgment, the reward will not be multiplied. In fact, there is no reward

01:49:00 --> 01:49:45

layer kurunegala Shea maca Sabu they're unable to keep anything of what they have earned, will love will layer they'll Komal Catherine and Allah does not guide the disbelief in people. And just like this, those who show off, then their charities will be erased from their record. Their good deeds will be blown away. Why? Because they weren't done for the sake of Allah, so they will have no reward for it whatsoever. So these verses make it very clear that when we give something even if it's a very tiny amount, please let us give with sincerity. Remind yourself only for Allah only for the sake of Allah. As we learned in Silikal insan wildberry Muna Brahma Allah who behaved miskeen

01:49:45 --> 01:50:00

and were team and what a Syrah, they give food to others. Why out of His love, meaning because they love Allah. That is why they give food to people and they give to who the one in need.

01:50:00 --> 01:50:46

The orphan and even the prisoner and they say in the monitor mo completed your healer, learn to remain calm Joseph and well as shockula we feed you for the face of Allah, we don't expect from you, we don't want from you any kind of reward or gratitude. You know, sometimes we say things like just make the offer me, right someone that for example, you you help someone, and they, and they say thank you. And you know, they start thanking you praising you. And you say just make the offer me you by asking them to make the offer you you're actually seeking a reward. So don't even ask people to make the offer you them. Why when you are sincere in the sense that you only want reward from

01:50:46 --> 01:51:25

Allah that means you want nothing from people. You don't want a thank you message. You're not expecting a thank you note, you're not expecting them to mention your generosity and family gatherings and before your friends, or to make a public mention of it online or anything like that. No, you're not expecting anything like that. And you're not even going to ask them remember mean you're there, when you give for the sake of Allah than give purely for his sake and expect all reward from Allah subhanaw taala only. And remember, that hidden ship, right hidden ship is what it is showing off Ria doing things doing good in order to be seen by people. And there's actually

01:51:25 --> 01:52:03

punishment for this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever does a good deed in order to show off, Allah will expose his intentions on the Day of Resurrection. Allah will expose such a person on the Day of Judgment. And we learn that you know one person who will be brought on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will have given him different types of wealth in the world. And Allah will ask him that what did you do with all of this? And that person will say that, Oh Allah I spent it, you know, in good causes for your sake, and a lost parent, I will say you have lied, you did it so that you would be called a generous person. So you got your reward in the world, you were

01:52:03 --> 01:52:44

called generous, you were called a philanthropist, you are called this and that you got all those labels and titles. So now you have nothing and then he will be dragged to the fire of *. So it is very important that when we give we give for the sake of Allah, so Allah Subhana Allah says when my fellow Latina Yun akuna Amala home, those the example of those who spend their wealth, why do they spend their wealth? First of all, ibbity law, a mandala Tila seeking means to the approval of a law This is a reason they give it only to seek more words of Allah. They want to please Allah. They want Allah to be happy with them. What does be the mean unfussy him? How do they give what is the manner

01:52:44 --> 01:53:32

in which they give? They give a showring reward for themselves. What does this mean? This means that they give with confidence that yes, I'm giving for the sake of Allah. And the reward that Allah will give me is enough for me. I don't need acknowledgement from people. I don't need their praise and their reward. No, I have faith that Allah is promises true. That when you give for the sake of Allah, Allah will reward you multiply times when you give for the sake of Allah, Allah will not leave you empty handed and He will give you something better in return. And this bita min unfussy him also means with happiness. And he they give happily, they don't treat it as a burden, that Oh,

01:53:32 --> 01:54:21

what a burden I have to give again, no, they give happily. So the example of such people whose intention is sincere, and whose manner is beautiful. Then their example is comically Jen nuttin is like that of a garden, what kind of a garden be Rubble, a tin, which is located on high ground asaba where balloon which is hit by a downpour, heavy rain. So what's going to happen for us at akula Halle Berry Fein, so it yields its fruits in double, double produce for illumio scible. However, they don't fall. And even if it is not hit by a downpour than a drizzle is sufficient. Allah will be my Dharma Luna both lead and Allah of what you do is seeing. So what's happening in this example,

01:54:22 --> 01:55:00

you see the person is the garden, the location of this garden, which is blahblah high ground, that is the sincerity of the person, and the rain is the charity that he gives, and that could be a lot or it could be little. So we see that when the soil is good, the location is good. When there is sincerity, then whether there is a lot of rain or a little rain, a lot of charity or a little charity, the quantity of the rain, the quantity of the charity, the amount has little impact on the harvest. And just like that when a person gets

01:55:00 --> 01:55:42

with sincerity, then whether they're giving a lot of money or a little money, it doesn't matter, because the reward will be massive, the reward will be massive. And even when there is no rain, we see that the moisture in the air is sufficient, because the location is perfect a drizzle or morning do will suffice. But when the soil is not good, the location is not good. You can water that garden for hours and hours, and the harvest the produce will be scant. So what do we learn from this, we learn over here that when a person gives him the way of Allah, there are two kinds of challenges that they face. One is the challenge of the the test of the year, that am I giving this for the

01:55:42 --> 01:56:36

praise and acknowledgement of people. And the second is hesitation from from within the weakness of intention, the lack of you know, trust and faith in Allah, the lack of confidence that if I give, then I will be left empty handed I will have little. So we see over here that the people who give with sincerity and the people who gave with confidence, putting their trust in Allah, then look at the results. The result is a massive reward, which doesn't need a great quantity of charity, a great amount of charity, a little bit even is sufficient. So instead of focusing so much on the amount that we're giving, we need to focus on the state of our heart that give it with utmost sincerity and

01:56:36 --> 01:57:19

give it with utmost confidence and trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. And then we see over here, Kamata, lagenda, timbira Burton asaba, Hawaii nonfat ocular *, their fame, the rain is mentioned that at times the rain is a downpour heavy and at times, it is just very little, just a drizzle. And this is how we should be. If a Lost Planet Allah has blessed us with a lot of wealth, then our charity should be such that it should be a great amount. And if we are experiencing some financial difficulty, that doesn't mean we give nothing, no, then still we should give something because a person who is truly seeking the approval of Allah, they will figure out a way to give it the cause

01:57:19 --> 01:58:04

of Allah, even if it is something very, very little. And we see this in the companions, the companions were not all wealthy, there were there were not such that they had a whole lot of wealth sitting with them all the time. No, have almost rude rhodiola Mourinho meaning he mentioned how, whenever, you know inverse, whenever the Prophet sallallahu earlier send them would instruct us to spend, we would go towards the market. And we would work as porters meaning carrying, you know, people's belongings, right in order to transport them. And we would get a mud like a handful of dates basically. And that is when we would give in charity. So if they had a lot of wealth, they

01:58:04 --> 01:58:52

would spend a lot, but if they had nothing or little, they would figure out a way that how can I earn money, how can I spend from what I have. So it is the sincerity and the effort with which a person gives, which matters. And we learned that even the female companions would earn money and they would give we learned about about the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Xena, but on the long run her the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned that her hand was that that the first of his wives to meet him would be to join him would be the one whose hand is the biggest right and the wider the Prophet sallallahu Urdu send them you know, they began measuring their hands with

01:58:52 --> 01:59:33

comparing their hands with one another. And then when Xena * love Martin had passed away they realized that what he meant by that was generosity, and I shall do love more in her said that cannot thermal obeah de * with the sun double. She used to work by her hand, meaning earn an income and with that income she used to give in charity. So figure out a way to get in the way of Allah don't that don't fall behind in this matter? And then it is said I would do a hadoken enter cornella who agenda to Mina healing we are Navid tangy demon, Tatiana, and how would any one of you like to have a garden of palm trees and grape lines underneath which rivers flow fee I'm in colusa Morocco in

01:59:33 --> 01:59:59

which he has from every fruit, any a perfect garden? What asabe old Kiba voila who to Rhea todorova. But at the same time he is afflicted with old age and he has weak offspring dependent children for our Saba aerosol rune fee now on fighter rocket, and at that time, his garden is hit by a whirlwind containing fire a storm of fire and the garden is fully burned. Would anyone of you like that you wouldn't cut

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

Malika ubu Nola Hola, como iottie la la quinta qarun Thus does Allah make clear to you his verses so that you might give thought. So this is the example of who of the people who show off, meaning they give charity, but then they destroy the reward of the charity themselves, just like a person who has a garden. And then right at the time when he is most in need of it, that garden gets burnt. And just like that, a person gives charity and on the Day of Judgment, when he is most in need of his good deeds, those good deeds will not be there, they will be burnt about a month surah destroyed. Why, because they weren't for the sake of Allah. So don't destroy your own good deeds by showing off.

02:00:46 --> 02:01:28

Secondly, it has also been said that this is the example of the person who is negligent with respect to the rights of Allah, meaning he goes on pursuing the pleasures of the world, and he does not obey Allah. So he will be in extreme regret on the Day of Judgment, because imagine the regret of this person, that he has a perfect garden in which he has basically spent his entire life and then what happened, he is old, his children are unable to help him and his garden gets burnt, and he what will be the state of this person's regret. So this is how some people will be on the Day of Judgment, which people, the people who are neglectful in the rights of Allah. And thirdly, it has also been

02:01:28 --> 02:02:12

said that this is the person who, at the end of his life, he does bad, meaning he ends his life with sins and disobedience. And he all his life, he was careful. But then right at the end, he does things which are so wrong, which are so inappropriate, that they cancel out all the good that he has done. So would any one of you like that? You wouldn't? So ask Allah subhanaw taala for hedaya ask Allah to guide you to the best of ways. ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you tofik to do what is best, ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you sincerity and ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you test meat to give you firmness and steadfastness until the end of your life. inshallah, we will conclude

02:02:12 --> 02:02:26

over here and remember that tomorrow inshallah we will complete the study of Surah Surah Baqarah. So, inshallah I'll see you tomorrow. So panicle lahoma, will be handing a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta, stuffy Luca Tobu la wa salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato
