Are we let him in the chute liner rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim
as the number 196 surah two number
one are the Athena the Buddha was Sulayman or ilma.
And we had certainly given to the world and Soloman knowledge, both out and today man are the same they had been given
The question is, who is the wilderness alum? And who is Sulaiman? Are you
remember that Ibrahim or his son is Hulk or his son, his son was your Cobra listener who had 12 sons and all those 12 sons was use of Verizon,
and use of it Sam, where did he end up in Egypt and when he was there, he called all of his family to Egypt as well
as the Bani Israel they lived in Egypt for several years in prosperity in dignity, until they followed and observed the instructions that almost Panther had given to them. But very soon What happened they were turned into slaves by whom their own and his people.
And that is why a las panatela sent moosari sam in order to Free the bunny is throw at you. And eventually what happened. The bunny Israeli were taken by Masada Salaam were
towards a sham. But remember that when the sea was opened up for them and the bunny Israel crossed, they ended up in the desert and they were there for how long? for 40 years. And in those 40 years, the bunny is trial they were taught many things by both Missouri design as well as Halloween early center. There were many people who learned but many people who disobeyed
and in those 40 years, the entire generation of the week the cowards those people who had slave mentality, they were wiped out and a new generation came for
and during this time, musala Suleiman have been arrested and both of them they passed away as well in the desert in the wilderness.
And most our histogram student who was you should even noon
remember you should even noon he was the servant as well as a student of Masada Sam, he was chosen by a line under his leadership what had happened.
The Bani Israel they entered the scene, the blesser land, and they were victorious and they entered that place.
The money is high. They live there for several years in dignity and prosperity again, as long as they follow the instructions that almost panda had given.
But what happened soon, they drifted away from what Allah subhanaw taala had sent to them. And as a result, other nations were sent upon them, who committed great injustices against the Bani Israel. They evicted them from their homes, and they also killed many of their men, women as well as children.
And then what happened that amongst the Bani Israel, the prophet of the time, he was requested by the people that you appoint for us a leader, a king, so that we can fight under his guardianship and go back to our homeland and regain our freedom, our power and we can re establish ourselves. And this incident, it is mentioned in sort of the bacala i a 246 onwards, that the Mullah of the Bani Israel they came to their prophet and they asked that you appoint for as a king so that we can fight in the way of Allah.
And the Prophet of Allah. He warned them that Hello, I say to him in quotevalet, completado, Allah Ducati, but what do they say? Why should we not fight? We have been evicted from our homes. Our children have been killed, we are going to fight.
So what happened then? He told them that your king is who pollute, but they objected that how can pollute we are King when he's not that wealthy is not that powerful. But the money is very we're told that our loot had been chosen for a specific reason. And that is because he was able to lead the bunnies, right?
And the story continues. You have read that earlier. But to summarize what happened, Duluth he took the army off the B'nai Israel in order to fight to jello.
And while they were traveling, the army was tested how they were told they weren't allowed to drink more than a handful.
But what happened many of them they drank to their fill, and many of them as a result were left behind. So it is said that it was only about 300 some soldiers who went along with bodysuit in order to fight the army of journalists.
And amongst them was Ooh. That would listen.
And at that time, he was not a prophet. nor was he a king he was just a soldier.
But Allah subhanaw taala had
Given the elderly, some great strength, great might. And he also had the strength of Eman which is why we see that when the two armies have faced one another dilute the opponent armies king, he stood up and he said who will come and fight me? He asked for a one on one, and they would arrest him he came for but we see that though there is no he was very short. He wasn't that tall and his height. So jealous he felt it was not suitable that that we should come and find him but the other reason he came three times.
And then what happened the other day Sam he fought him and what do we learn what katella will do
that that whoo there is no killed gentleman. And as a result, the army of the Bani Israel they were victorious and they regained their freedom they regained their power, and who was appointed as the King,
And it wasn't just that he was appointed as the king but Allah subhanaw taala also gave him Prophethood Allah subhanaw taala also gave him a lot of knowledge besides prophet.
So he was given many, many blessings.
Now, over here, Allah subhanaw taala says that what are the Athena the Buddha was Sulayman who said a miner is the Son of God is that and both of them, they were given an ailment, knowledge. And this refers to special knowledge through revelation. It refers to the knowledge of the deen
and it also refers to the knowledge of dunia because there were there was good, both types of knowledge.
He was.as to how to worship Allah He was taught the law, which is why when he was the king, he implemented that law he made decisions amongst the people according to that law.
And secondly, he was also given a lot of worldly knowledge.
Like for example, what kind of knowledge was he given,
working with iron, that it was made very soft and pliable for him. He was taught how to make Sonata labouisse how to make chainmail and how to make coats of armor. It was the first time that this was ever made for the people. So he was given a lot of worldly knowledge. But over here, it's not just that well there is no but also Sulaiman Arneson was mentioned what kind of knowledge was he given?
He could understand the language of the birds.
And because this knowledge, it was special, it was different. Everybody did not have it, it was a special gift. And this is why the knowledge over here, especially as mentioned,
that what are the Athena the Udo Sulayman ilma.
Now, if you think of it, both of them, they were given knowledge, they were given kingdom, they were given a lot of wealth, and they were also given a lot of physical strength. But out of all of those things, what is mentioned in particular, are in what does it show that it has precedence over molk over authority and kingship?
It has precedence over physical strength and physical might, and it has precedence over wealth as well. Because it really is better.
In Serato, Medina is number 11. What do we learn? Yo very low Latina Eminem income one Latina otter, Alma de Raja, that Allah will raise those people who have believed among you. And those people who are given knowledge by degrees. That the more Eman a person has, the higher his rank is, the more alien a person has, the higher his rank is.
So random in particular is mentioned because this is the ultimate source of precedence over others. But with this knowledge, with these great gifts, what was their reaction?
Well, Carla, and both of them said they would answer the man both of them in gratitude, they said Alhamdulillah he, lady, all praises to Allah, who, for berlina are that caffeine in memory that the hill momineen
who gave preference to us over many of his believing servants?
It's not just that Allah gave us precedence over people in general. But he fought berlina he gave us preference over many believing servants of his that He has given us what he has not given to others.
So why did they say this out of gratitude, when they realize the great blessings that our last presenter had given to them,
that it wasn't just that Allah gave them knowledge, but he combined that with Prophethood. And he combined that with worldly power as well.
And the knowledge that they were given, it was not ordinary. It was very different.
It was very unique,
for example, that we're there to serve, as I mentioned to you, he was thought as to how to make coats of chainmail. And he could mold iron in whatever shape that he wanted. It was like wax for him. He could literally mold it in whatever shape and form he wanted.
So the manner in a setup, the gym, the wind, the animals, the birds, they were subjugated under him. So the knowledge that they were given, was not ordinary, it was very special. And this is why they showed gratitude to them. This is why they were special, that they were grateful to Allah Alhamdulillah he levy for berlina. Allah cathedra Marybeth to him for me. Typically, when a person has something unique that others don't have, how does he behave? He thinks very highly of himself, fit around, he had a lot. And he became very arrogant. But the other day said, I'm sorry, mannerism they had so much, but with their email, they were very grateful to Allah.
And when a person is grateful for a blessing, then what happens? He begins to value that blessing, he will value that blessing when he is grateful for it. So because they were grateful for all of these blessings, they value them. They use them properly.
They benefited from them, and they benefited other people as well. We'll call Alhamdulillah. He levy for berlinetta cathedra. Marybeth didn't mean,
well, why do you assume a man who the Buddha and Sulaiman inherited that would? What does that mean by this? That out of all the children of the Buddha,
who took his position after his death, it was such a minor isn't. It is sad that the older Islam had a total of 19 children,
and out of all of them, so a man or a sudden became his heir.
But how did he become his heir? In what way? Did he inherit all that wealth from him? Did he know? Because you remember that the other lesson was, he was a prophet, and the prophets of Allah, they do not leave behind wealth, and money, that is to be inherited by their families, but rather what do they leave behind knowledge? And if a prophet of Allah does leave behind some kind of wealth and property, who does that go to? charity? Because we learn from our Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said national martial MBA lanugo as a matter of Navajo, for whoever sadhaka
we profits cannot be inherited from whatever we leave behind is charity.
So well, why is this will a man who there would still a man or s&m he inherited, that would only send him in what in knowledge? Because in the previous ayah, what is mentioned illman.
So that knowledge he got into his son's elementary isn't
until a minor lesson and by the gift of Allah, He was also given Prophethood and he was also given kingship.
What color until a man arrested him he said, Yeah, you have NASS or people, which people, the people of his kingdom, who were the the Bani Israel, he said to them, or limb, among the copy, we have been taught the speech of the birds or limb no rain, let me I lemma you're literally to teach. We have been taught the language of the birds montek from the root letter is known for cough
and Manta is used for speech. It's also used for logic, and not is the ability to speak. And it can be used for humans, it can be also used for animals,
the way that human beings living beings, they communicate with one another.
So for a limited amount of time, we have been taught the speech of the birds, that we can understand what the bird say, what do we think birds are saying?
They're just chirping, right? But when the birds chirp, they're actually communicating with one another. And sometimes literally, if you analyze if you listen carefully, one bird says something and the other bird responds in return. They literally communicate with one another month of light.
And so they matter and he said and he was able to understand the language of the birds and alumna Now over here, refers to only use a minor listen.
We have been taught. This is for Charlie
and others say that the entire nation, they were able to understand the language of the birds.
What whoo Tina
We have been given mean cliche of everything doesn't mean they were given every single thing. Everything over here, cliche has been mentioned to show the abundance of the many blessings that they have been given.
Like, for example, if somebody asks you Do you need anything? You say, No, we have everything. What does it mean? That our hamdullah we have a lot.
If somebody asks you, you're having a party, you want me to bring something you say, No, no, we have everything over here. What does it mean? There's a lot. So khalifate represents the abundance of the blessings that these people were enjoying.
And secondly, cliche can also be understood as everything that prophets and kings are given. What will Tina mean coalition we have everything that we need in our kingdom.
In Allah who will follow maybe, indeed, this is surely followed will be a clear, a clear favor of Allah.
Notice how still a minor listener, because he was grateful himself, he also instilled feelings of gratitude in his people.
He wasn't telling them about all that they possessed as a nation in order to show off in order to make his people very proud and boastful. No, he's telling them all of this to make them realize this is a huge favor of a lot. Because look at how he's mentioning in their head, Allah who will follow moonbeam.
He is acknowledging the fact that this is from Allah.
You know, we learned, what am I doing here material because I had this that mentioned the blessing of your Lord. This is what it means by mentioning it. This is what it means by talking about
that when you sit with your family members, you make them read as a local Hamdulillah, we have this, we have this. And you tell your family members that look, Allah has really kept us in a good condition compared to other people. This is not to show off. This is not to feel proud over others. But this is to raise feelings of gratitude. Because when people are grateful, only then they can value blessings. Only then they can stay humble. Because many times people get deceived by blessings, we have so much we are the best. Nothing can harm us. But if a person realizes this is the gift of Allah, then it will keep him humble.
So what do we see over here, that the older listener, he left a legacy of knowledge behind him and his son, he inherited that from.
And this is why the hair that he had it continued after him, even though he died, it continued after he was gone.
This shows is a very, very important thing. When it comes to knowledge, it does not automatically transfer to your children. You have to pass it on to the next generation. And you have to strive you have to put an effort for them to be able to take that knowledge. The Buddha is an M he must have trained his son. We don't have so many incidents where the older assignments are a man or listen they were together and a case was brought. And the older listen he made a judgment and today mannerism, he gave a suggestion. What does it show that he taught his son?
We think that if we have a lot of wealth, we should let our children enjoy,
But we see that if we let our children enjoy have fun, then what's going to happen? When we die, our children will not know how to take care of themselves. They will not know how to value the deen how to practice it.
So it's essential that if you have the knowledge of Deen, you make sure you teach your children don't depend on others that they will teach your children. No, take it as your own responsibility. You have to pass this on.
Because if you don't pass it on, it will not be automatically transferred.
Does it ever happen that a person is a doctor and their son will automatically become a doctor? No, they have to go to school as well. They have to go and practice as well. They have to take all those exams as well, only then they will become a doctor.
And if a doctor just thinks that no, I have made all of this money, I went through such a hard life. I had to study so much. I let my children enjoy.
If he does that his children will enjoy until he is alive. When he goes when he retires. What are his children going to do? What will they have with them?
So we see that intelligent people are those who realize the value of what they have.
And when they realize the value of what they have. They don't only want it for themselves, rather than leave it to. They make sure that it's passed on to their children
and the elderly sort of did that.
And this was a means of success for Sulaiman Arsenal, and the entire nation of Bani Israel.
Because if he did not leave behind himself a leader, such as today, man, or instead of what would become a very Israel, just imagine.
So it was a great air sign on the wilderness and that he left behind himself, a leader such as cinnamon or insulin.
And this does not happen immediately. This does not happen without any hard work, no, a lot of effort has to be put in
training a person means you have to put in a lot of effort.
It's very easy to open a computer and let your children enjoy to open up the television set and let your children enjoy for hours while you can rest. And it's more challenging that you sit with your children, and you teach them how to read when they don't want to read when you make them read when they don't want to read.
But eventually, in the long run, what is beneficial teaching, passing on that knowledge, making them realize as well, because if you don't give this to them, then they have nothing.
One more thing that we see over here is that today, mannerism, he had a great skill, he possessed a great skill, which was
understanding the language of the birds,
that he did not just know one language, he understood multiple languages. And this is a source of great success. Even today,
we think that we should only be concerned about speaking our mother tongue, or the language that is very common. And when it comes to learning more languages, we think, Oh, forget it. I've become so old. You know, I'm already a teenager, how can I learn? This is what we think.
But the fact is that you cannot be truly successful, you cannot learn more.
You cannot benefit people more, unless and until, you know, multiple languages.
And for us Muslims, at the top of all languages, which one?
And we think if we have not learned Arabic When we were young, there's no hope for us, isn't it? That's what we think.
But the fact is that you can learn, provided that you put an effort.
The other day, somebody was asking me, how did you learn how to read Arabic, I told them by reading by practicing by using the dictionary that I would spend literally six hours seven hours non stop studying, studying, studying, reading, checking with the translations, opening up the dictionary, one dictionary after the other. And this is what helped me asking people, I had an airprint. And I used to ask my father, any word that I would get stuck at, I would call them. I still need improvement. Definitely. But I did not reach the stage. Except without putting in effort.
I showed the book yesterday, the collection of Hassan even sabots poetry. And you know many people they came in looking at Oh Arabic, try open the work. Get a dictionary. It's not that difficult. You just have to try. We think that we have not been taught from a very early age, there's no hope for us. No, there is hope for you. Haven't you seen so many people who are learned in their religion who are conduits and they speak Arabic better than us? How is that possible? Just like that, no, they put in a lot of effort, the sacrifice, they read, they listened again and again. And that is what improved them.
So in order to truly learn the religion, in order to improve the understanding of the deen, we need to learn more languages. Because if we don't, we will not be able to convey the message. And it's not that difficult.
It's not that difficult. If you just make your target, I want to understand Arabic. This is my goal. I want to be able to understand it, I want to be able to read it, you make up your mind, you can do it very easily. It's not rocket science. Very simple.
So make up your mind and do it and when you do it, it'll really help you excel. You know, one is that you rely on translations. So many people ask me, what should we study? What can I tell you the syrup and caffeine which is an abridged English translation of the actual book. It's not even the full translation. What other English resources do you have very few.
So if you rely on these translations, your knowledge will remain limited.
You have to learn more languages to be able to expand your knowledge. And once you get a grasp on the Arabic language, then your resources are unlimited. Unlimited.
There are times when I want to read I have a pile of books I want to read them but I don't have the time.
So the list is endless. The resource
are endless. So you really need to develop the skill in order to expand your knowledge.
The knowledge of the Arabic language, it separates the real students of knowledge from the laypeople.
If a person understands the Arabic language, he has a good grasp on Arabic grammar, his understanding will be far better far better than the understanding of others. This is what differentiates, because the real student of knowledge, you will be able to open up the dictionary he'll be able to open up with a seer book he'll be able to open up a book of Hadees and you'll be able to understand so much more
and a person who relies on just translations, his knowledge will be limited. His resources will be very, very limited.
So we see that today mannerism he mentioned this a limited amount of time because this is something that is a way to great success.
Well Hirsi Ali Sulaymaniyah. Junu the who
and gathered for such a manner listen I'm where his soldiers who Sheila her should have a neuro veterus hashing or hash and hash it is to gather something together.
So first of all, a man or listener, it was gathered up what was gathered of judo is armies. Now which armies did he have, mean a genie of the gin, one NC and the human beings what Lady and the birds for whom use their own, and they were all restrained, they were all kept an order, use their own is from Well, they are in was our and was our was their shape is to restrain something, in order to keep it well arranged.
You're holding it back, you're not letting it go. So that it can remain in order. So that it can remain in the proper arrangement.
And this word is also used for an army was it
was their agenda is to set the army in roles.
Because think about it, if you have 1000 people in the army, and they're standing in the form of a crowd, what does that show?
lack of discipline, isn't it? And if you have them in rows, every person in his proper position, what does that show discipline.
So for whom use their own all of them, the jinn, the human beings, and the birds, all of them were used their own, they were well organized, they were well arranged. They were completely disciplined. They were completely in order, every one was at its proper place. So they were brought together in groups like this.
Now imagine if you have to control a group of human beings, how difficult it is.
You tell them to stand in their places do not move from there, how difficult it has to do that.
But it wasn't as the human beings It was a gene. Jim, how can you control the jinn salamander? Listen, I was given that great power. And birds. Just imagine birds, keeping them in order, keeping them in the form of an organized army, for whom use their own. So all of these armies that were gathered up, but they were not haphazard. They were perfectly in rows in complete order in perfect discipline.
And what does this show? What does this reflect
the good leadership or who said a man or listener.
And it also reflects what the obedience of those who were in the army.
You see, in order for a place to function properly, in order for an organization to run smoothly, in an organized fashion. With discipline, you need two things.
You need a good leader. But you also need people who are cooperating.
Because a good leader is who
one was oppressive. One was harsh. One rules like a tyrant and he forces the people to listen. No, that's not really a good leader. A
good leader is one who gives a good example to the people. He encourages them. He motivates them warns them. But along with that you also need people who are cooperative. This is why they're able to recommend What do I do they make what I learned with the cleaner.
With the clean because of their motto, when they will be obedient, then they will listen.
So both fingers are necessary. Sometimes what do we think? We tend to blame the leaders? They don't scare us. They don't warn us. They don't motivate us. But why should we completely relax
And others what about us?
this, like some people have this habit of blaming other people, they don't touch my heart. They're not that touching. The same way people also blame their leaders. They're not motivational. They don't have this roar, they don't have this all. And as a result, I'm not pushed to do my work. This is not good. At the end of the day, each person is going to be held accountable, both are required, the leader to motivate and the subject to be obedient.
You have to trust your leader.
Now, we see over here that the army of Sulayman are listening. It's so disciplined, it's so organized. And this is something that unfortunately, we lacked today.
For these two reasons, lack of good leadership. And secondly, lack of cooperation on the part of the subjects. They don't cooperate. They know, but they don't do. This is why you walk into any Islamic unfortunately, Institute or conference or anything like that. And the moment you walk in, you know, it's organized by Muslims. Why? Nobody knows what's going on,
isn't it? Everybody is the leader. Nobody's a subject. Everybody's a leader. If you think about it, sometimes you go to a conference, every single person you see is a volunteer
1000s of volunteers. And as a result, they're standing here and they're walking around. nobody's really inside. Everybody's just volunteering, everybody's in charge. And as a result, there's a huge rush of people who are just going from here to there. And when you go inside, where people are supposed to be listening to the lectures, hardly anybody's doing that.
So this is a means of great lack of discipline. When there's lack of cooperation, the part of subjects and there's absence of good leadership. Now salamander, listen, it's amazing how he possessed the armies of Jean and human beings and the birds and he managed to for him use their own keep them together, keep them in an organized fashion. This was a great gift. That's a mannerism that was given by Allah soprano, because nobody can accomplish this, unless and until it is by the permission of Allah.
had that either ATO
until when they came. So for whom use their own all of these armies that were gathered together, they were restrained, and then they were marched for, they were told to march 4, and as they were marching forth, had either ATO earlier where they normally until when they came upon the value of the ends, who this army of men Jin and the birds, they came upon a valley of the ends now How big can the value of the ants be?
Big but still not that big.
So just imagine this valley of the ends a normal is from the veterans, noon mainland.
In some states, the plural of the word number nambla is singular. And number is plural. namida literally means to climb. And Neville is also used for a clever person. Why? And they climb and answer known for their intelligence, isn't it? So? It is said that ants they have about 500,000 nerve cells in their bodies
500,000 nerve cells and how big are their bodies? Tiny?
If you see an ant that is a centimeter long, like oh my God, what a huge end, isn't it? Typically they're very tiny, a few millimeters.
So just imagine how intricate their bodies must be. how detailed how amazing that they're so intelligent, such intelligent creatures, yet they're so tiny.
So when the Army or salamander Islam they came upon the value of the ends, what happened? Call it num Latin and answered. She said, Yeah, you have Nam Lu. Oh and odo Luma sakeena comm enter your home's masakan florala macka enter your houses. What were their houses underground, Donald's anthills a low Harlem so enter your houses? Why
lay off Lehman knuckle Suleiman urge you to do so that's what a man in his armies they do not crush you? Yes, Lehman help taught me how to help him is to crush something to break something crumble it, smash it.
So enter into your houses because if you don't, then what's going to happen? So a man and his armies, they're going to get knocked over, they're going to crush you will smash you home, lay your shirt on, and they will not realize and they will not realize that they're actually crushing you. They're actually trampling over you. They will be unaware.
What do we see over here?
The great wisdom of this end.
First of all, if you look at the end, it does not
Create a panic run, know, she tells the rest of the answer what to do? Enter your houses lay everything on the console a man what you do?
She tells the rest of the answer what to do, why. And the instruction is very short and clear.
What happens when we are in a situation such as this, we become so frightened, so frazzled, we panic ourselves, and we make the other people frightened as well. And it spreads fear and people cannot understand what they should do isn't at all, each person becomes confused. And it creates such a panic that instead of benefiting everybody ends up incurring loss. So look at how she instructs the rest of the ants.
It has said that this ant was the queen and however number two is any end could be any entry.
And if you look at it, how she says
that she has good supposition about silly minor Islam and his armies.
This is what happens when there is justice. When justice is established, that people have good assumption about you about the leader.
That's a minor in Islam because of His justice, because of his obedience to Allah subhana wa Tada. We see that the rest of the creatures even they are so good, that even the ends even the and she has such good supposition about Solomon arisa
for the bossa nova Hagen what was the reaction was that a minor incident? That he smiled laughingly. amused, melancholia at her speech. Why did he do that? Is this out of arrogance? No, this is out of pleasure. You see, sometimes a person smiles the best time is from the bustle the bustle Mr. Smile. Sometimes the person smiles out of mere pleasure, sometimes out of finding something very cute, sometimes or finding something very amusing.
Sometimes a person smiles in order to taunt to ridicule at the other. Sometimes a person may also smile, in sadness, sometimes out of their feet. to belittle the other out of arrogance, there could be different reasons.
But over here, they've assembled logic and logic to laugh one who laughs So he smiled laughingly. And blah, he can it shows that the smile was off pleasure. He was amused why melancholia, because of her word because of her statement. What did she say?
They have a man what do you do one layer scharoun wahome layer shadow. This made him smile, that look at how positively this and his thinking about me and my army.
What color? And he said, Robbie azione Oh my Lord, give me the ability enable me and Ashkelon, aromatic allottee. And I'm Darla Yeah, that I am grateful for your favorite which you have bestowed upon me.
Immediately, he turned in humidity and gratitude to a loss of gratitude.
At that time, we didn't think that we can crush her even if she goes into her house. No, there's no pride. Immediately he realizes this is such a huge favor of Allah, that first of all, I can understand the speech of the ends. And then on top of that, look at what these ants are talking about, look at how positively they think about me.
When a person does good to others, than the creatures also what happens? They think good about him.
What do we learn about the student of knowledge?
When he goes out, in search of knowledge in order to learn the one who teaches good to other people? What do we learn
that the fish in the sea and the ants, what do they do? They pray for him.
They pray for him.
What Eman Shane Liu Sabir who become the will actually lead.
We think these creatures are useless. They have nothing to do, which is why they're such a nuisance to us. That's what we think. Right?
But if we look at these ends, as creatures who prey for the student of knowledge for the one who teaches good to others,
if we look at these ads as creatures who have perception, who have good thought, good assumption, wisdom, that you're saying such positive things about their came about certain mannerisms, and
then our attitude would completely change towards these creatures.

So if you see over here the Dawson a minor this What does it reflect his thinking, his inner feelings that he realizes the blessings of Allah He acknowledges the blessings of Allah.
And at the same time, he's also thinking about the blessings that were bestowed upon him upon his parents. Because whatever the parents have the children benefit from it.
Whatever he had, why, because, obviously, Allah subhanaw taala had given it to him, but also, the other Islam had taught him, the other Islam left something for him, he prepared him. So, it is of intelligence that a person acknowledges the blessings of Allah, and also the blessings that he receives through his parents.
Because many times when a person reaches a high level, when a person becomes successful, okay, he may have become grateful to Allah, but he does not think about his parents, he does not think about the effort that his parents have put the good that he has received through his parents, which is why he is praying, look at the dog. So the manner the sound that give me the ability to be grateful for a the blessings you gave me, and what the blessings that you gave to my parents, because he realized the blessings that his parents enjoyed, he enjoyed them as well.
So it's very, very important that whenever we achieve anything, whenever we enjoy anything, whenever we attain success in any way, we must realize it's because Allah gave it to us. And it's because Allah gave it to us through our parents as well.
Sometimes we become very proud of the education that we may have, who put in all the effort, it's our parents,
we may be very proud of the values that we have, the skills that we possess, who put in the effort the parents.
So we must realize that we have to be grateful for not just the blessings that Allah gave to us directly, but also to our parents and to us through our parents.
If you look at it, every child is born in fitrah. But it's the parents who either make them Jewish or Christian, or a fire worshiper. So we have been bestowed with this huge blessing that our parents raised us as Muslims, should we not be grateful for this fact?
Should we not be grateful? That would be a zero need an escort an arithmetic allottee and amta aleja were allowed early the year if my parents were not blessed with a blessing of Islam, then what would happen to me
if my parents were not blessed with the blessing of being affectionate, of valuing education, of instilling good things in me than what would happen to me.
So we have to realize the blessings that Allah has given to us directly and also through our parents. And with this realization, there should also be the desire to do something good what an error masala handlebar
because what's the point of so many blessings, but a person does not use them in a good way, in a proper way.
When you have something, you're supposed to do something with it.
So all these blessings you've given me, give me the ability to do something with them that you will be pleased with, that you will be happy with.
That these things don't just become a source of fame, source of arrogance, a source of pride, a source of supremacy over others, but no a source of doing good. And then give me the great blessing of righteous company in the hereafter as well.

And if a person achieves great things without Eman And then what does it lead to? pride, injustice heartiness rejection of the truth, despite knowing it, despite seeing it, so there is a clear difference.
So, if we want that our children should remain humble. Our children should remain good then what do we need to do? just teach them? How to enjoy life? How to eat that food and how to sit in a restaurant and how to dress up? Is this all that we need to teach them? No, both things are necessary. Amen. And, and not just in love dunya aim of Deen because unless and until a person has that he cannot remain humble. He cannot become grateful he cannot use the blessings of Allah properly. Eman and are essential. This is what either keeps a person humble or makes a person a tyrant.
