Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim that's number 18. A SoTL. Allah if
you have any Adam, or children of Adam, who do Xena taco, take your Xena.
If you notice how again and again a lot of times it says yeah buddy Adam Yeah, buddy Adam,
do arouse the sense that other medicine is our father.
And shaitaan deceived him
shaitan tempted him and he humiliated him. He took his clothes off. How can you like Chevron? How can you like him? How can you listen to him? How can you find the same trap? Be very careful.
So yeah, many other who do Xena taco take your adornment were in the masjid at every
day cure Xena.
What does Xena mean?
Beauty, adornment, that which beautifies that which is used for the purpose of beautification.
So take your beautification at every Masjid, meaning every time of worship at every occasion of worship. So what does it mean by Xena?
Xena is understood as physical Tina,
as well as intangible Tina.
So tangible physical Zina is within. For instance, a person wears clothes First of all,
such clothes that cover his nakedness that cover his armor.
And this is different for men and women. For instance, for a man, when he's praying, he must wear such clothing that covers his shoulder, as well as it covers his shoulders.
For a woman, she should wear such clothes that cover her entire body, including her head.
So hello, Xena don't wear your clothes.
And notice how close they're being called Xena. Why? Because clothes beautifier person
clothes, beautify a person. without clothes, a person looks horrible. You don't want to look at him or her.
And it's people who have a very bad taste who like to look at nudity. Something very filthy.
That person has such a bad taste that he enjoys looking at nudity.
Whereas in reality looking at nudity is something that even children are very uncomfortable with, even they don't like looking at it.
So who knows in other containers, you know, what does it mean? First of all tangible clothing meaning where your claws that cover your shoulder.
where your Xena meaning make sure that you are clean, physically clean.
Put on some articles of adornment, but on some fine dresses. When you are praying. Generally, we have kept our nice clothes for what?
But what does Allah say where your nice clothes when you are praying?
Similarly, we wash up, we brush our teeth, we shower, we comb our hair when we were going out. But what does Allah say that when you are praying, make sure that you are physically present.
So wear clean proper clothes, and not just clothing. But you should also wear some kind of perfume, some kind of fragrance.
Similarly, brush your teeth, which is why it is highly recommended to do miswak.
Comb your hair because that is what adorns the body.
In sometimes I don't understand how. You know when people wake up in front of sauna.
They pray and they go back to sleep. And many times what is it that makes you go back to sleep because you haven't fully woken up?
Why you didn't brush your teeth. You didn't wash your face properly. You didn't change your clothes.
Obviously you're still in that state of sleepiness. If you go to the washroom you wash up yourself nicely. you brush your teeth you comb your hair, and you wear your good clothes. Then Believe me, you will not be sleepy after coluzzii nautico you'll be awake.
Secondly, hello Xena taco, Xena over here is intangible beauty. And what is it that beautifies us Allah when a person has a class when a person has for sure. When he's focusing in the salon he has fear of a lion is hard.
So take your Zener in the Colima sit every Master, meaning at every occasion of worship, whether you're praying or you're performing poetry or you're going to the masjid. Make sure you're dressed up nicely.
Make sure you're dressed up nicely when you're going to the masjid you
Wearing clean clothes,
you're wearing clean socks. Because sometimes people reuse their socks for many, many days. And as a result, what happens
when they're praying when they take their shoes off when you go down to such that the carpet stinks, or the person before you, they're spending a lot their socks are spending a lot. Just imagine, if you're standing in prayer and a person comes standing next to you who hasn't showered for several days, who hasn't brushed their teeth, you will have any clutter in your Salah? No,
you will not have. So don't be a cause of disturbance for other people either. Just as you don't want anybody else to be like that. You don't be like that for anybody else. So hello zenas aquamarina coolmuster
Welcome to wash amo and eat and drink one or two seafood and do not do so.
What is it's rough
that when a person does beyond need
so if you are doing will do and you are wearing nice clothes, then don't go into another extreme that you're spending half an hour spending so long to get your proper clothes and to iron them and to whereas you could make do with other nicer clothes as well for which you could spend less time dressing up. So what are 234 don't overdo it.
Similarly lead to seafood is rough includes wasting.
And so often foods spending something in sinful ways.
So don't do it stop. Why? Because in the hula, you have will muslimeen Allah does not like those people who do Islam. So what do we learn from this ayah about the importance of dressing up nicely at the time of Salah
whether it is that a person is reciting the Quran, or he is doing record, or he is attending the Quran class because this is also a form of worship.
So when you're coming here, when you are going to the masjid, when you're praying the salon, make sure that you're clean, make sure that you're looking good. It doesn't mean that you don't wear the uniform and trying to look good, or that you cross the limits. Because for women, we know that it's not appropriate for them to wear fragrance in front of other men.
So just make sure that you stay within the limits. But make sure that you wear nicer coats.
Remember that when your hijab is fragrant when you're at home and your prayer mat, on which you're praying, even that is fragrant.
It's going to be such a peaceful experience for you.
As opposed to you're going down into salute and pray right stinks and you can't wait to get up.
So make sure that you're clean. your surroundings are clean, so that you can pray with OSHA, you can enjoy it. It's not a burden on you.
And another very important lesson we learned from this ayah is warning against Islam.
Because sometimes in the name of dressing up in the name of being nice and clean, even for worship, we go to another extreme.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said,
as I mentioned to you earlier that eat and drink and clothe yourself without his love and without arrogance.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said especially with regards to eating because it has been said to be here Kudo wash la boo
that the son of Adam will not fall apart worse for himself that his stomach.
If a person commits, his throbbing eating is overeating. Then he's filling a vessel that is worse for him to fill.
It is enough for the son of Adam to eat a few bites that strengthen his spine, if he likes to have more than let him fill a third with food, a third with drink and leave a third for his breathing.
But what do we do, just because we like a particular food, it tastes so good on the tongue. We have one after the other after the other to the point that we feel sick to the point that we feel so sleepy that we can't even stay awake.
Coleman Hama Xena de la he let the ordinary buddy say, who has forbidden the adornment of a law which he has produced for his servants.
Because many times people go to another extreme that out of piety after righteousness, they will leave all in.
One extreme is that in the name of piety or not even in the name of piety, people go to the extreme of over adorning themselves and wearing Zina.
And the other extreme is that people make it unlawful on themselves.
If Allah has provided these things for us, and he has made these things lawful for us, and he likes it if we use them so he's questioning us. Men how Rama Xena de la de la te a huddle everybody.
Whether that Xena is Levesque,
or it is other things of comfort and enjoyment of life that are highlighted and pure
If Allah has created them and he has provided them to you, he has not made it out on upon you.
Who has made it home upon you? No one has.
So if people in the name of monasticism in the name of piety, if they made certain lawful things harm, then it is a fabrication.
Because Allah says a little earlier he By the way, he produced it for his servants meaning for their needs for their enjoyment.
We learned a little bit about Cora Haleakala calm method of the Jumeirah He has created for you everything in the year.
It's for our benefit.
No one has written these things therefore take advantage. Use them.
What are you bad at? And the good things mean a risk of provision?
Meaning the lawful and good foods, hello beneficial foods, who has forbidden them? Allah has not forbidden them. So who are you to make it hard on yourself?
Allah has allowed you to enjoy good clothing, to enjoy clean clothes, to wear nice clothes to eat good food.
Allah has admitted how long so don't make it hard on yourself. When Allah has produced it for his servants,
all say meaning all prophets are allowed to sit and say, here it is. What is the Zener that people wear? And secondly, the thing about the good foods that people eat? It is Lin Latina Amano. Phil Hi atonia.
It is for those people who believe in the worldly life, meaning out of all of humanity. It is the believers who have the most right upon what Allah has made lawful.
Look at this little Medina Amano Phil hyah Tony.
It is a believers who have the most right to enjoy this.
For example, if you have something good
and you want to give it to one of your children who you give it to the one who was most obedient. So Allah has produced these good things, he has produced a Xena, but who is most deserving of it. Those who believe in him.
Highly certain, and it is exclusively for who for the relievers when young will pm on the Day of Resurrection on the Day of Judgment.
It is exclusively for them not for anyone else, good foods, and Xena were engine
exclusively for them.
It is also that the call is often because Holly says that which is pure, which is unmixed, unpolluted.
So in the Hereafter, they will have the You bet, and they will have the Xena in their purest forms,
in their unpolluted forms, in this dunya what happens? You're having a very nice juicy apple.
But you wonder how it was made to turn red, whether it was gas, or was it ripen on the tree? You wonder, right?
You wonder these potatoes that you're having, how many pesticides how many things were sprayed onto them.
So even though they may appear to be very good, you don't really know if they're really clean. If they're really in the purest forms.
So they're harmless, often meaning there are pure in their purest forms in the hereafter for who for the believers. yarmulke gamma on the Day of Judgment
gadelha confiscated at the coming out of the moon. Thus do We explain the ayat for who for people who know?
meaning those people who know those people who have knowledge, they will understand and they will know how to implement these verses.
They're the ones who will have moderation in their lives, who
people who are knowledgeable.
One who is knowledgeable is one who is able to implement the ayatollah properly with moderation.
This is why we see that the knowlegeable the scholars of the past, they enjoyed the Xena.
They ate good food, but they did it without Islam. They did it without kibosh
and they used it with gratitude.
For instance, we learn about Mr. Malik, he used to wear a new garment every day.
He could afford it. So he would wear it. Not with arrogance, not with pride not to show off that I can't repeat these words. But he would wear them and he would give them in South Africa.
This is moderation that Allah subhanaw taala has given
You, you don't have a wardrobe that is so huge that you don't know where to put your clothes anymore. Because sometimes this happens that we have so many clothes, we don't know where to put them.
If you've used something, you've enjoyed it, that somebody else enjoy it now.
So he would enjoy, and he would give it to somebody else to enjoy. Why keep it for like 10 years with this gift that I've wanted only once.
Why heward only once. And if you could wear it again, you would have wanted by now.
If you didn't, you're not going to wear it anymore. Give it to someone else who can enjoy it before it gets spoiled.
He would only once and he would give it away.
Do you understand?
Especially if you can afford it if you can't afford it, that's another thing but Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah has given you so many other clothes Why should you keep something saying I have worn it only once? I have to wait more.
Similarly, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
a man once said to him, I like to wear nice clothes and shoes is that arrogance? He asked him
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam replied, in the lodge and even you have Jamal.
Allah is beautiful. And he loves beauty.
arrogance is what bottle will help with humbleness. arrogance is to refuse and deny the truth. And belittle people consider them inferior.
So wearing clothes,
whether they're expensive when they're very beautiful, or enjoying good food, with gratitude is something that is beneficial for a person. It is something that Allah likes.
Because Allah has made these things for you. And he says over here that it is for believers.
But if a person wears good clothes, or he eats some particular food, for the purpose of gaining fame, for the purpose of showing off, if there's arrogance, then that is disliked.
We see over here that Los Angeles has cadaveric and fasudil IIT Komiyama it's only those people who have been who will benefit. Why? Because in this Quran, Allah subhanaw taala has started the etiquettes of what is appropriate, what is inappropriate, how we should wear what we should not wear.
So if a person learns only then he can implement and if a person does not learn, then how can you implement? How will you have moderation.
Now going back on the fact that wearing good clothes is not something that is forbidden in our body, as long as a person does it, with humidity with gratitude.
And he doesn't do it with the intention to get fame, or out of arrogance for the purpose of showing off. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he once wore a shawl which was worth 1000.
a shawl that was worth 1800 very expensive. Even today. Imagine somebody wearing a shawl worth 1000.
It's a big deal. But he wore it. But he didn't do it with arrogance.
And at the same time, he used to give a lot of sudden
we need to check ourselves that if we're buying expensive clothes, Yes, go ahead. If our sponsor has given you the means go enjoy, wear. But at the same time also think about the poor.
What do we learn that in the month of Ramadan, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would be as fast as the wind in getting Southern.
He would give sadaqa so much.
So if you're buying some clothes for yourself, why don't you buy some clothes for some needy person as well? Why not? If you're buying a nice hijab, a nice job, a nice pair of clothes, buy it for some needy people as well.
And I mentioned you that story earlier with the Prophet settlements and he was wearing something, a shawl that was very beautiful and a person came and he said it's so beautiful. Please give it to me. And he gave it he gave it.
So yes, he wore something extremely expensive. But at the same time he was also very charitable, and he didn't wear it with arrogance. Why do we think that if this person wears the same clothes as mine, then how am I going to be unique?
I was reading Reader's Digest and there was a joke in which they had said that the reason why women don't play football or something some game is because you cannot find 11 women wearing the same outfit in public.
So for us the problem is we cannot stand another person wearing the same clothes as ours.
This is why we will not give away something that we like or buy the same thing for another person.
And if a person thinks that also printer has given this to me, I should
Enjoy it I should let other people enjoy it as well. There is no arrogance. There is no self conceit, there is no pride
because you can tolerate somebody else wearing the same thing.
Similarly hanifa he owned a shawl which was worth 400 silver coins
400 silver coins, silver coins, a shawl that was that expensive. He worked. He had it. So it's not wrong.
Especially if a person is wearing good clothes, not to show up before people especially when going to weddings, but he's wearing good clothes where
Kudu, Xena tocom are in the masjid, Mr. Malik, he would wear a new pair of clothes every single day. Why? Because he used to teach. He was a teacher.
And he could afford it. So every single day, he would teach in the mosquito net week, and he would wear new clothes every day. Why? Because he was in a coma in the Kalima state, we spent 1000s on wedding dresses, on clothes that we can wear on other people's weddings,
a lot of money, and that is purely for the sake of fame for the sake of showing off for the sake of getting approval from people, literally, which is why we will not repeat our thoughts. If we were in on one wedding, we will not wait another wedding.
The problem is what what will people say? What will they say?
And sometimes, if you go to a wedding, people will comment on your clothes only.
That's all that you have to say. If somebody is wearing clothes, that's all you have to say that you have to comment on their clothes. Are you wearing the same outfit again.
And literally you feel that all that is left of weddings is dressing up. wearing clothes and dressing up all that is left of parties is dressing up. Which is why sometimes we have a party, we emphasize no hijab, no job, what's the big deal? If somebody is comfortable wearing nicer clothes, they'll wear it. If they're not they want.
Don't force your opinions and other people don't force your views and other people. And it's possible that they were in their house, but they're not comfortable wearing in other people's houses because it's possible that their brother will come with their father will come or that there's no concept of proper hijab. They're not comfortable, so don't force them. And we need to develop this in our lives is that our main focus is not just clothes, get out of this.
This is why when you see someone don't always talk about their clothes that are of this what is the loss of hematite? So what devisor turquoise Erica Hi.
Yes, Xena is permissible, if you can afford it, if you can afford it, and if you have the opportunity. Sometimes people will not leave other girls on weddings. Oh, why are you wearing a job? or Why are you wearing a hijab? When at least is wearing nice clothes lever? Why are you wearing the same clothes? Maybe she cannot afford more clothes. Maybe she doesn't have the opportunity. Maybe she doesn't have the time. Maybe she doesn't have that ability to go and buy clothes all the time. Maybe you have 100 and maybe she doesn't.
So stop talking about other people's clothes for God's sake, stop commenting on them and start making people feel insecure and that they will be attacked any moment in a public gathering. Get out of this.
Our weddings, our parties are not honorable clothes
are not all of our clothes. If you have to wear good clothes, what is the last transparency in the Kalima street?
Not for showing off? Not for display before people?
Yes, Allah has given you Xena.
If you have the opportunity if you can afford go ahead if you cannot don't force other people and don't pass comments on them either. So be very careful next time you go to a wedding before passing comments on somebody.
call in and I have another bill for washer. Say my lord has only forbidden immoralities My Lord has not forbidden Xena. What has my art forbidden in moralities. indecent acts
being naked. This is something that Allah has forbidden
Masada minha whether it is law hid, whether it is apparent whether it is done openly, woman batana and that which was hidden,
whether it is done openly or it is done secretly.
Whether it is done publicly or in private, it is something that Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden, what is meant as well as sin,
meaning acts of disobedience. Even those he has forbidden one belly and rebellion, meaning oppressing people that is also forbidden. So why does
act of disobedience to allow soprano Darla and what is really what is really
oppression against against people
because it will help without any right meaning no one has the right to oppress others. It is completely unjust

and that you associate partners with Allah even that is forbidden.
malam Yunus will be so foreigner, that for which he has not given any authority, any evidence,
so associating partners with Allah, that is something that Allah has forbidden, and he has not given any authority to people to do that. Well until kulu, Allah humanitarian won't and that you say about a lot what you do not know, even that Allah has forbidden.
So when it comes to religion, sometimes for some, it's about how you dress up,
which is why the moment they will become serious about the religion, they will wear a particular kind of garment, maybe a hijab, maybe a job, maybe a particular type of hijab, maybe a particular type of job. And they think that that's all that it is.
Whereas piety is not just about your physical garments.
It's about your actions
that my lord has forbidden for lakish My Lord has forbidden nudity,
anything that goes against modesty, whether it is swearing, or it is lying, or it is yelling at innocent people,
Mazel homina uomo button
and other things that are mentioned in the ayah
such things are forbidden.
And our focus should not just be on the outward appearance. Again, our focus should be on the inward as well, if you look at the balance in these ayat
that were Libous has mentioned about at the core, as mentioned,
where Zenith is mentioned. And also panatela teaches us as he has benefited from it but at the same time don't do this off.
Where physical appearance is important when it comes to piety. Similarly, a person's heart should also be good when it comes to buy. A person's should also be good when it comes to buy it.
When he couldn't do math, in Agile, and for every nation is an appointed term for every generation, for every nation is an appointed term.
What does it mean by this is
a term for its existence, in which they have the freedom to do whatever they want.
similarity this can refer to the time of their and the time of their death or the time of their destruction.
For either a judge to whom, then when they're appointed term will come
layers that hidden a certain they cannot delay for an hour while you're stuck the moon nor can they advance. They cannot delay even a millisecond. And they cannot bring it before it's your time. Meaning it will come at the right time. At its fixed time.
Why is this being mentioned over here? You see the machine were mentioned earlier
that they used to say that we do the work without any clothes because this is how Allah made us and we don't worship Allah in our clothes that we sent him.
And similarly, people have other types of justifications for doing whatever they want to wearing whatever they want to.
But what is the last parameter to say that for every person for every nation, is a time of expiring?
Every person is eventually going to be
this dunya is a test. Your closer That's for you. Your Zenith is a test for you Your food is a test for you. Your opportunities are a test for you, everything is a test for you.
And when your time will come,
you cannot avoid it at all.

indeed, if messengers come to you from among you, meaning whenever messengers come to you from among you,
Yokozuna, they relate or lay come upon you at my versus what does is refer to my account, my comments.
My messengers they come to you, telling you about my comments,
family, then whoever adopted Aqua,
meaning whoever feared Allah and accepted the instructions of the messenger
and stayed away from that which is forbidden
Well, I'll slow her and he also reformed, reformed what his deeds, his actions for the homeowner lay him, whatever whom he has known then such people, they will have no fear, nor will they agree
otherwise, and when he was sent to the dunya, this was said to him and his progeny,
that messengers will definitely come. And when they come,
they will tell you about the commands of Allah.
Whoever believes, accepts, changes his ways improves his ways, he will have no fear, no regret in the hereafter. But on the other hand, the person who does not accept the person who does not change his ways,
his hereafter will be full of fear and regrets.
So what's the lesson in this ayah for us,
that the way out of prison, and home is adopting the core and doing Islam,
fearing Allah, and reforming our lives,
that is what leads to life without fear life without prison.
One or the other will be it. And on the other hand, those people who deny our Iet
who don't accept them, was stuck on her. And they're arrogant towards them.
Meaning they consider the commands to be outdated, they consider the commands to be irrelevant, not beneficial. And hence, they don't believe in that they don't accept them. They're too proud to accept them. They think that if they accept them, they will go backwards. These commands came 1400 years ago. Wake up. This is your today here in this world, in this present time. So you have to dress accordingly. You have to wear clothes accordingly. This is what is take love. What does Allah say those people who deny our eye out and they're too arrogant towards them? When that equals have enough houfy Holly don't. They are the image of the hellfire. And they will be in it forever.
Sometimes, when it comes to our closing,
we don't take this matter seriously. But I can only close no big deal.
But the fact is that even your claws are a test.
And with regard to them, Allah subhanaw taala has sent us specific instructions. And if we say no, no, I can never wear the hijab.
No, no, I can never wear loose clothes.
I can never wear clothes that completely cover my body. I cannot wear these baggy pants. No, I can't do that.
This is what arrogance.
And this is something serious.
Just as we're concerned about eating about drinking when it comes to lawful and unlawful. Similarly, we should be equally concerned about wearing clothes, we should take this matter seriously as well. Because a lot of times it has instructed us with regards to every matter of our lives, every single metric.
And we have to take it seriously. Because if we don't, then the consequences are very severe.
on the apparent it seems like the issue of clouds
but in reality, what is it? It's the test of whether a person obeys a law or not.
Just as if this was tested
on the apparent he was made to prostrate before other restaurant but in reality what was that? A test of his obedience to Allah soprano.
That such there was only an excuse, it was only a means. Similarly, these clothes that were given, it's only a mean it's only excuse. What is actually being seen
whether we obey a law or not, because a person might say, Well, why is the metrical code so serious that a person? No, we're being warned over here that those who don't accept they're arrogant, they'll end up in the Hellfire eternity. What does that show
the clothes they demonstrate whether a person is going to obey a law or not.
And based on his obedience and disobedience, his his final result is his final
presentation of these
