I was a bit let him in the shade. James Miller has over him.
feeble youth in, in houses Edina, Allahu Allah has ordered, Allah has allowed and too far that it be raised where youth got off, and it'd be mentioned, what should be raised and what should be mentioned in the booth is smooth his name, meaning the name of Allah.
The question is feeble uten. What does it mean by this
feeble youth and has been understood in several ways? First of all, feeble utin meaning, the believers who have such Knuth, who have such guidance, who have such knowledge, where are they? Where do they live? Where are they on this earth? In such houses where Allah has commanded that his name should be remembered? His name should be mentioned.
Meaning the people who have Eman and their in their hearts, where will you find them? In places of in, in places where lm is learned where in a start?
Because whatever a person has in his heart, that's what he's interested in, whatever a person is interested in, that is what he is found with.
Like, for example, if a person loves shopping in his heart, where's he going to be found? in the mall? If a person loves a particular friend, where's he going to be found? at his house?
If a person loves a particular sport, where's he going to be found either in front of the television or at the stadium? Right?
Or somewhere where the TV is going to be on and he's watching the match, he's checking on the scores. He's checking the scores on his phone, he's checking the scores on his computer, he's checking everywhere, wherever he can possibly find. Why? Because he has the love for that thing in his heart.
Similarly, when a person has love for hidayah when a person has love for a man when a person has interest in the knowledge that our last parameter has given, where will that person be found? feeble, utin ebina, love and tufaro when you've got a few,
he will be found in such places.
And secondly, freebooting has also been understood as that such niches, such niches, the Muscat that was mentioned earlier, in which is the lamp these niches which which have lamps in them which are very bright, where will you find them typically, in Luton arena level and tougher where you've got to feed,
you will find them in such places in such houses.
And over here balut it can be understood as massage places that are specified for worship.
So a person who has hedaya in his heart, a person who has love of knowledge in his heart, he will be found in the masjid, what are called Blue Moroccan filled Masjid. And a person whose heart is dyed to the masjid you'll be found over there.
But you There has also been interested as the homes or such buildings such places where knowledge is learned, where knowledge is stopped?
Whether it is a must ship, or it is not a question.
So for example, the place that you're in, what is this place, it's a place where it was learned a place where in the store, so a person who has love for a man love for knowledge, where will he be found
in the classroom or the cafeteria, or the washrooms
in the classroom, when the class is going on, he will be found in the classroom, because he wants every bit of it.
He does not want to lose even one moment, even one second, even one subject, because he has love for knowledge. And when he has that love for knowledge, he doesn't want to give up an even one thing.
Even one subject, even one line, even one page, even one idea, he doesn't want to miss even one word, feeble utin he will be found in such houses
which houses how has a loss of parent are described them as being alone that Allah has allowed and Edina from even even as you know means permission, but when this word is used for a loss of data that even of Allah, it is understood in several ways.
It can be understood as even as an permission and also even as a command because even
Allah is county as well as shuttering when Allah allows something to happen in the county sense, like for example for a plan to grow fourth, for a person to die for a person to be born, this is what gonee and even Sheree, when Allah has given religious command
when Allah has allowed something in the religion, so adding a law unto Pharaoh, where youth coffee has grown, in such houses in the massage
in the places where these believers are found, there are such places where Allah has commanded he has ordered that his name should be raised and it should be mentioned.
Now the word too far is from Rafa is rough and rougher is to raise to elevate and this is done in two ways, in the tangible sense, like for example, will it yell for evil or he will collaborate and innovate, when you brought him or his son was raising the foundations of the house, that is what in the tangible physical sense
and secondly, refer is also in the intangible sense, which is when a person honors the other when he raises its macom its status, its position, its rank.
Like for example, a las panatela says not for de la Jatin, Manisha, we raise the ranks of whomever we will
meeting the rank of that person is elevated, it is made higher.
So over a year, when the name of Allah should be too far, it should be raised, it should be elevated. What does it mean by this?
It means that in his name, for the sake of His name, such houses, such places should be built, they should be set up, they should be put up so that people can come to these places and they can remember the name of Allah.
And also, to follow that Allah's name should be meaning it should be honored, it should be revered, it should be respected.
where youth coffee has moved and his name should be mentioned. Meaning in these houses,
you serve behala, who he glorifies for him who glorifies who does this be?
Who does this we're the people who have this email, the people who are found in these places
that when they go to these places, when they go to these buildings, when they go to the place where a limb is being learned and taught. What do they do over there?
What do they do over there? You sub beholder who he glorifies for him meaning such people glorify Allah soprano Tata in these places. They don't talk about worldly things. They don't talk about exalting themselves.
They don't talk about making money. No, what are they talking about? What are they busy doing? Doing the speed of Allah? You serve beholder houfy here will who do we in the morning? Well, Elsa and the evening
and we'll do is the Florida roadway.
And roadway is used for the early part of the day, the morning and outside is a Florida of a scene
and a scene is used for the evening. The afternoon, it is said that it refers to the time between acid and Madrid
the time between acid and muscle so it's basically the end of the day. So we'll do is the beginning of the day and our soil is the end of the day.
So you certainly heard of houfy have been overdue we will assign that his name should be remembered, it should be raised and he should be Glorified Allah should be glorified in these places in the morning and in the evening.
Now over here, this being it can be understood in two ways First of all, select
because remember earlier also we have learned that the word the spear is used for Salah.
So what does it mean by doing this we have Allah in the morning and the late afternoon. It refers to fudger sana as well as the our Salah,
one at the beginning of the day and the other at the end of the day.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said mon Sol Bodine the halogen, whoever prays the to cool prayers meaning budget and then such a person will enter agenda.
And secondly, this view can be understood as the the kind of glorification of Allah in whatever form it is done whether it is by reciting the Quran or glorifying and praising the last panel data in some other way. Obviously, some authentic way, then we will do we will our soil would mean all the time that Allah should be glorified in such places all the time round the clock, not just in the morning, but also in the evening.
Because the place that has been set up, that has been made for the remembrance of Allah, then people should not just remember all over there at certain times, at just one part of the day. No, there should be classes in the morning. And there should also be classes in the evening, around the clock all day long.
Because sometimes what happens, if people are told there is an evening classes and no evening is too late for us, we want to come in the morning lonely. But what do we see that a place that has been set up for the worship of Allah for the vicar of Allah, then a person will want to be there all day long, whether it's in the morning, or in the evening, and the people who have such a man in the heart they love such places?
So what do we see in this ayah
that people who are in receipt of ullas guidance and move then that guidance is reflected in their actions? How that first of all, their actions are constant. They're consistent.
u sub B Hello, fi here below do we will outsell
the actions of such people there evaluator of such people. The study of such people, the readings of such people, when they study the Quran, when they read the Quran, it's consistent, it's constant.
It's not just that a person says yes, I went to school in the morning. And that's enough, I don't need to open the column for the rest of the day. No, we'll do we will assign morning as well as evening.
Because think about something that you love, you're going to do it all the time. Isn't it
something that you love, you're going to do it all the time. For example, if you really like your phone, or just going to look at it once? No, people have their phones all the time. They have them in their hands literally, don't even put them in their bags. And every few minutes, you know, press the home button, unlock the screen. And then just in case something's new, Check Twitter, check this check that in case there's an update, there's something new, this is what people are doing. Why? Because they love it.
So love interest, it brings consistency in actions.
When a person has love for the knowledge that Allah has given, he will not just open the Quran in the morning, he will open it in the morning, he will open it in the evening.
So how is this a man reflected in the actions of a person first of all through consistency.
And secondly, that such a person who will be found involved in particular activities at particular places
that he will be found in the masjid. He will be found in places where the dean is being taught where the dean is being different.
Because sometimes people have this attitude that I have studied the Quran once I have my certificate, I have my diploma, therefore, I don't need to go back. And even if they do ever come back to the Institute, they will not sit in the class thinking that I've already done it. I remember once I was sitting before I used to teach only the word analysis part. I was sitting in your class. And one of the girls she asked me how come you're sitting here? I said, why not? She said, Don't you know this stuff already? Like even if I do, don't I need to revise this? Don't I need to get inspired by this even more? Don't I need this nourishment? Of course I do. So when a person loves
the deen when a person realizes the importance of knowledge, he doesn't think since I have studied this subject before, I do not need to listen to it again.
No, he does not think like this, especially when it comes to the crowd. He will find every opportunity to come and listen and revise and learn to rekindle that fire.
So this is the reality of a person whose heart has embraced the new that Allah Subhana Allah has given
and as a result, what happens? He doesn't just remember Allah. He is not just found in such places, but rather too far he also raises he also elevates he respects the name of Allah. He respects the book of Allah
will May your limb sha Allah for in the Herman dakolo kulu. Whoever honors the symbols of Allah Indeed, it is from the piety of the hearts. It is from the taqwa of the hearts.
And we see that over here in particular massage either mentioned, we chose that massage in the places where Allah subhanaw taala is worshipped the places where knowledge is learned and taught. These places they deserve respect.
Act, they deserved our lien. They deserved that we respect such places. And part of respecting the masjid is that a person does not cause noise, that a person does not raise his or her voice in the masjid.
We learned that, that once a person he said that he was standing in the masjid.
And a man threw pebbles at me. So I looked and I saw it was a modafinil, Hopper, or whatever katabi threw pebbles at him.
And he said, Go and bring me these two men.
So he threw pebbles way to get his attention. Obviously, it was in a way that did not hit him. It was just to get his attention. So he said, Go and bring me these two men. So this person, he said, I went and brought them to him.
And he said, to those two men, who are you are where you from? And they said, We are from a wife, or mother, they learn who said, if you had been from this town, I would have hit you, for you are raising your voices in the mustard of the Messenger of Allah. How dare you raise your voice and the mustard of Allah because you are guests. This is why I have spared you. If you are from this city, I would have hit you. I would have punished you because you're disrespecting the masjid.
So we see that it is an obligation upon us that we must respect the masjid too far, until for our offer intangibles that a person must respect due to a lien. So even when we go to the masjid, sometimes, for example, the gym or what was going on? If we're not attending the prayer, what are we doing? Sometimes the stocking talking so loudly?
This is extremely disrespectful. When the hookah is going on. We're not even allowed to say to the other person be quiet.
Do you know that we're not even allowed to say to the other person be quiet? We can't even say such statements, such brief statements, then how can we be talking about things of this dunya and things that are irrelevant and talking endlessly, just fulfilling the desires of our hearts? This is inappropriate, this is disrespectful.
Also, we see that when it comes to the masjid, a person cannot use it for his own personal benefit in the sense that he makes announcements for his lost items. Or he begins to buy and sell things over there to make profit. No, this is not permissible. We learned that a man called out in the masjid once and he said Has anybody said anything about a red candle? Perhaps he had lost a red candle of it. So he said, Does anyone have any news about it? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said me You'll never find it. The mustards were built only for what they were built for. Meaning they were not built for this purpose that you go. And you talk about worldly things. You talk about your
business, you talk about promoting your business, this is inappropriate.
Similarly, a person is not allowed to buy and sell in the masjid.
Recently, I visited this Masjid and there was a bookstore over there. And that was obviously, you know, to promote the knowledge of the deen and it was not really inside the place where people were praying. Because these days massage especially in this country, there are more like community centers where people pray and there are certain areas where they can buy, you know, religious books and things that are necessary for practicing the deen. So the stall was there.
And all of a sudden, this woman came with a huge bag, and she put it in the mustard which was across from the table in the masala area. And that bag had you know, scarves and dubov and clothes, the women and all the people who were coming towards the bookstore, they went towards buying the shawls and the buyers and the scarves and etc, etc. And I was so amazed was like first of all this is happening in the masala it is not permissible. And secondly, it is as though it is being done in competition against what the mustard is built for. I mean, the mustard is built to promote the knowledge of the deen so that people can learn that they can practice it. And this is competition.
So this is not allowed. This is disrespectful.
And a person who has a man in his heart who has Hidayat in his art he can never tolerate such things. He will never accept such things. He will never be a part of these things. Who are these people? Allah says reject alone. There are men into human beings.
Because what do we think that people who are too much into Deen or people who are very good at their hearts, people who are very much involved in the religion, we think that it can't be human. No, it's human. They're regeneron they're men. And Jan is a Florida Virgil and remember that Roger is used for a man in particular not women.
So this shows to us that it is the obligation of men to populate the masjid.
It's an obligation upon the men that they must populate the masjid.
The women Yes, they're allowed to go to the masjid the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said
If the wife of any of you asks for permission to go to the mosque, do not stop her. Let her go. However, whose obligation is it to go to the masjid men. Remember that for men iqama Salah establishment of Salah is not complete unless and until they pray in congregation
unless and until they pray in the masjid.
So it is our obligation as women that we must encourage, we must tell, we must encourage our husbands, our fathers, our sons, whoever, whichever men are around us, we must encourage them that they must go to the masjid at least once or twice a day, if not five times a day. Because whose obligation is it to populate the masjid to go to the masjid men? rejoice alone, and it is such men who go to the masjid who led to leave him, it does not distract them, delete him from the newsletters, Lam how well
and low is as you know, amusement, entertainment, something that distracts a person from what is more important. So not only him, it does not distract them. From what from us just from rebekka. From learning from teaching laterally, him What does not distract them dejohn any trade, whatever your own, nor any business, nor any bargaining from what einzige relay from the dhikr of Allah.
Notice it hasn't been said that they don't do anything.
They don't do any bear. No, they're normal human beings. They do the data, they do obey. However this tiara and bear it does not distract them from the curve of law.
They have to go to work. They do have to go make money, they have to go shopping, they have to do many, many things. However, at the same time, when it is time to go to the masjid, when it is time to go to class, when it is time to go for a Salah nothing distracts them, Salah Masjid becomes a priority.
Now, two words have been used over here, the Jonathan and Bayern and there are differences between the two. The Jarrah is such buying and selling that is done for the purpose of profit.
So for example, a person who trades goods, why in order to make profit, it's his business. That's the profession that he has.
And they are on the other hand is such buying, which a person does in order to fulfill his needs.
So you can imagine the jello to be like somebody's going to work and be around like somebody's going to the grocery store.
Okay, both maybe Buying and selling. One is for profit, the other is to fulfill your need.
So neither work distracts them
nor shopping distracts them. From what from the vicar of Allah
what economists Allah nor does it distract them from establishing the prayer what either is nor does it distract them from giving this okay
because typically what happens when the time comes for Salah when the time comes to go to the class, what happens? Let me buy this. Let me go here. Let me go there. Let me complete this work as well. But what do we see over here let us to leave the gelatin whenever you're on decree law, why ecommerce Allah Sala EDA is
nothing prevents them from fulfilling their obligations. Why? Because you have found that they fear Yeoman a day that Akala woofie. Hill kulu will absorb. They fear the day when hearts and eyes will be overturned.
That the color blue, the column of lambda and the column is the constant turning about of something
when something is constantly turning about.
So on that day, meaning the Day of Judgment, what's going to happen a lot of color, hearts are going to be constantly turning about and absorbed, bustle vision eyes. They're going to be constantly turning about as well.
Why? Because of extreme fear.
What happens when you are extremely fearful? What happens to your heart? It's constantly pounding,
isn't it constantly and what happens to your eyes? Are you able to look at one thing? No, you're looking here you're looking there. You're closing your eyes, you're opening your eyes, you're rubbing your eyes, you cannot stay focused.
So on the day of judgment because of the extreme fear that everyone will be overcome by
What's going to happen? The hearts and eyes of people are constantly going to be journeying about.
And because these people fear that day, this is why they have the right priorities.
This is why they do not compromise when it comes to the religion.
This is why they do what they know they must do.
They don't leave it. They don't neglect it.
Neither out of fear of people, nor out of fear of financial loss, that I will lose my job if I start doing this. If I start wearing the hijab, nobody's gonna hire me. I won't be able to go to school. I won't be able to continue with my career. No, nothing distracts them, nothing diverts them. Why? Because they have fear of the Day of Judgment.
They have a man in the heart and they also have fear of Allah.
So what do we see in this ayah
that in the previous ayah massages were mentioned, right. And in this ayah, the people who populate that Masjid, they are mentioned
that when they go to the masjid, they give the heck of the masjid.
And what is that half of the masjid? remembering ally in the masjid, establishing the Salah in the masjid.
Remembering a line in the masjid and establishing the center in the masjid, these two things are necessary. This is the hub of the masjid.
So, those people in whose heart is a man, those people who have known Allah know who have knowledge, guidance, he Daya then such people, they pay attention to the masjid they give the help of the masjid
in silicon, African Ayah number nine, Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, a human Latina, armano lateral you come on welcome, what are allowed to come and the killer. Oh, you have believed? Let not your wealth nor your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah.
Don't let them distract you. Don't let them distract you from the vicar of Allah.
Because whoever is distracted by them, then he is going to end up suffering great loss.
Because ultimately, this dunya is temporary.
this dunya is only for some time. Eventually a person is going to meet his end in the hereafter.
And a person who fears that end. A person who fears that Day of Recompense he will have the right priorities. He will not be distracted by dystonia. He will not be distracted by the things of this world know he will have the right priorities. He will pray for that on time, he will go to the masjid.
Now, this is primarily there for men. What about us? What about women?
As I mentioned to you, booth is not just massages but also places that are used for knowledge. Right? So many times what is it that distracts women from going to such places from coming consistently on time? not missing out even a minute? What is it that distracts us? It's the things of this dunya
but we see that when a person's goal becomes a hero, then nothing distracts him.
Exactly. There's women It is our responsibility that we must prepare such men. We must prepare such youth such men who populate the massages in this way will give the help of the machine in this way.
Leo Leanna Xia Humala, who so that allows me recompense them, meaning Leah does the lamb over here is a formula that they do the Spear of Allah, they remember Allah in the masjid. They are found in the massage they go to the masjid consistently. They're not distracted by the Java or by Why? Because they have a goal in mind.
They want to achieve something. And what is that? That Leah jizya whom Allahu Allah May recompense them. I cinema Emmylou, the best of what they have done, meaning the best recompense, the best recompense for the actions that they have done.
They want dessert from Allah, they want reward from Allah, this is why they do their best in whatever they do.
This is why they do their best in whatever they do, because they want reward from Allah.
Just as we discussed earlier, that when this hidayah when this fight is so special,
you have to make yourself worthy of it. You have to make yourself special as well. And once you have received it, you cannot have a passive attitude towards
you will give importance to it. And why will a person give importance to it? Because he wants reward from
When does he die so special when this knowledge
So special when this new resource special and the one who is given this notice or special and the reward for living by this new resource special, then should we not give importance to it?
Leanna Xia Houma la escena marami Lu Wei is either home in fugly and he may increase them out of his bounty. This is their goal, will love years ago Manisha the lady herself and Allah provides whoever he wills without any account
without any limit. Why is this mentioned over here that Allah rewards
the essence of what they have done, meaning the action reward. And then finally, he provides this to whomever he wants without any limit. Why is this mentioned over here? Because when a person's priority becomes the theme,
then he does not want the things of this dunya What does he want the reward in the hereafter?
This is why the Jarrah is not distracted.
This is why the things of this dunya the bear, it does not distract him.
The fear of people does not stop him.
Right? Because he has this confidence that whatever is written for me in this dunya I will get it regardless.
You see many times what happens people they don't wear proper hijab, even when they know they're supposed to, out of this fear that I'm not going to be able to work. I'm not going to get married. Nobody's going to propose me. Nobody's gonna like me. And literally, I've seen people who take off the niqab. Why, so that they can get some proposals so that men can propose them.
But if a person knows that I'm doing this for Allah,
I'm doing this for Allah, I know what the hookworm is and I'm doing it in obedience to Allah soprano, then you should be confident that will lower yours omega.
And ultimately, whatever I get up this dunya is temporary. What do I really want? What's my ultimate goal? there? Why did the hereafter. So when a person's goal becomes the reward of the Hereafter, then this dunya becomes very small before him.
that it does not frighten him anymore. It does not threaten him anymore.
It does not make him fearful anymore. No, because he knows Mangia a bit hasn't it further who actually
inserted an arm I 160 that whoever comes in the day of judgment with a single good deed, then he will have 10 times the like of it.
A lot multiplies the reward.
will love who you are if only Manisha. He multiplies the reward for whomever He wills.
And even in the dunya Allah subhanaw taala rewards such people. So never, ever compromise on the religion. Never ever leave the commands of Allah out of the fear of losing out in dystonia.
Because when a person sacrifices something for the sake of Allah, that Allah promises him something that is much better than what he has left.
We listen to the recitation then we'll continue.
V mu, Boo.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
These ayat they illustrate how knowledge benefits a person.
That when a person has knowledge of the deen, only then he will have love for the masjid. Only then he will have love for such places. Only then will he have interest into the Corolla in establishing the salon in giving the Zakat in fulfilling the obligations and only then will he have fear of the hereafter.
Only then will he look forward to the reward that Allah has promised and give less importance to the things of dystonia.
So, this happens with what with
with knowledge that a loss of paradigm has given. And you see this fear of the hereafter This is so important, because when a person has the fear of the Hereafter, then he knows that what he has done is not sufficient.
He knows that what he has done is not enough, he needs to do more.
Because many times what happens people get stuck between opinions with regards to certain things. You know, some say it's Mr. hub. Some say it's why'd you write, but if a person honestly asks himself, even if something is most of
it is something that's preferable. Have I done a lot of good deeds that I don't need to do something that's preferable?
You understand, when a person has fear of the Hereafter, it will motivate him to do more. It will motivate him to excel, do not stop anywhere.
This is why we learn into the movement on one Latina you tuna, Otto aku, myjalah anomala became Roger.
Those who do whatever they do, they give whatever they give, but their hearts are fearful. Why? Because they know they're going back to their Lord, will they use it or own a fill hierarchy or homeless
they're the ones who raised their head in doing good deeds. And they're the ones who outstrip others. They're the ones who get ahead of others.
So in these ayat, we have learned about the example of guidance, the example of hedaya that Allah subhanaw taala bestows His righteous believing servants when
and what happens to a person when he has received that guidance and knowledge
that his priorities change. His interests change the places that he goes to the places that he's interested in the things that he likes to do. All of them conform to what what Allah subhanaw taala likes. This is what happens to a person who is in receipt of guidance that is inside his outside, both of them change.
This is one person, on the other hand is a person who is in complete ignorance of the knowledge that a Lost Planet Allah has given the Hidayat that Allah subhanaw taala has given he doesn't have a burning flame of a man in his heart, nor does he have any knowledge to fuel that
to make it possible for that flame to be ignited
to the example of such people, as given
