00:00:02--> 00:00:11

eligibility mi[???]. languaging Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim lesson number 217. Similar to such that I am number 15 to 30.

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

So did you try reading it last night?

00:00:15--> 00:00:16

How long did it take you?

00:00:18--> 00:00:18

Not too long.

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

Alhamdulillah only 30 if

00:00:23--> 00:00:24

you feel good afterwards.

00:00:26--> 00:00:43

See, when you do something, when you act upon what you learn, it really gives you energy, it makes you feel very happy. And it really motivates you continue doing what you know. And once you learn and you don't act upon it, then what happens it becomes like a burden.

00:00:44--> 00:00:53

And when you act upon it, it really makes you excited and happy and motivated. And it gives you the energy to continue. Okay, let's continue to throw

00:00:54--> 00:01:48

in May you may not be a Latina, only those people believe in our versus who I levina either Dooku beha. Those people who when they reminded of them, what is their reaction, have Russo Giada they fall down in frustration? Was sub Bahu Be humble opinion. And they exalt Allah with praise of their Lord will whom lay us that could be rude, and they are not arrogant. This ayah it tells us about those people who truly believe in the Quran. The true believers in the Ayat of Allah. There are many people who claim to believe who say that they believe. But who are those people who actually believe who does Allah say that? Yes, they are believers whose Eman is accepted.

00:01:49--> 00:02:15

Those people who either do kill will be here, when they are reminded of it. They're reminded of what of the Ayat of Allah, such as the ayat of the Quran, that when they're admonished by them, when they're advised through the Ayat of Allah, what is their reaction? Hello. So Jaden, they fall down in frustration. Hulu is from the veterans Hall.

00:02:17--> 00:03:07

From the word Hello, hello, hello, is to fall down with a thumping sound. It is to fall down in a way that as you fall down, you can hear and it is also default instantly. So hello, soldier then they fall immediately that they are helpless. That as soon as they hear the Ayat of Allah, they are overcome with humidity. They're overcome with submissiveness and they cannot stand proudly anymore. No, immediately they fall down in frustration. So Jaden, florala sighted. And it's not just that they fall down in frustration, but in there such that what do they do was subpar who behind the lobby him and they also glorify with the praise of their Lord, meaning the center is not an empty

00:03:07--> 00:03:41

center is not a Saturday in which they don't say anything. No, in this Saturday, they glorify a loss of panel data sub Bahu, behind the European, they mentioned His perfection, and they also do his hand. They also glorify Him, they also praise Him, they thank him, for whom les is the Quran, and they are not at all arrogant. They're not arrogant, in front of the eyes of Allah, rather their behaviors of what obedience and submissiveness so what do we see over here?

00:03:42--> 00:04:29

that a person who truly believes in the Quran his reaction upon hearing the Quran, upon being advised by the Quran, upon being reminded of the Quran is not of arrogance. It is not of denial. It is not that a person does not change, he does not move, he does not get affected by it. You know, it's like sometimes you're talking to someone and there's no reaction. What do you feel as though you're talking to a wall, a stone wall, no feeling, no change, no effect, no reaction. Such people are not those who truly believe in the Quran. Those people who truly believe in the Quran their reaction upon being advised by the Quran is that immediately they submit Haru suggestion. They

00:04:29--> 00:04:45

submit their humble, they acknowledge the great attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. They acknowledge the perfection of Allah and they acknowledge their humility, smallness, their submissiveness and in their search the they glorify and last.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

So we see that their Eman is at such a level that objecting at the Ayat of Allah or arguing about them is something that is unthinkable

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

Doesn't even cross their minds that when they hear they never object, when they hear they never argue, rather, their reaction is that they immediately surrender. And they acknowledge the perfection of a last panel data sub the who behind your opinion, that Allah, He is free from imperfection.

00:05:22--> 00:05:33

Allah is free from imperfection that Allah would never ever reveal any command, that would be a means of harm for me, no sub the who behind the opinion.

00:05:34--> 00:06:17

And then, alongside this glorification is also feelings of gratitude behind your opinion, because remember, handles includes gratitude. So they're grateful instead, they don't object. They don't argue, they glorify Allah. And on top of that, they're also grateful that this is one more thing I know I can do. It's not that they feel it's become a burden upon them. No, they become excited, they become happy. They're grateful upon learning that this also Allah wants me to do, this is also something that Allah likes. So their reaction is completely different. And this reaction proves that they are sincere and true believers in

00:06:18--> 00:07:08

sincere and true believers in the Quran. Because imagine, if a person hears he learns, and he starts objecting, is that email, that's not even is that submission. That's not submission. If a person learns, but he ignores, he forgets, he doesn't act on it. He just writes it, but he never cares about implementing it, then is that real knowledge? Is that real faith? real faith is that when a person learns, what is his reaction of submissiveness, of humility, of acceptance of gratitude, sub Bahu, become the other be him and also for whom layers erode? And they're not arrogant? They don't think highly of themselves. Rather, what is their reaction, that they listen to a lot of panels on

00:07:08--> 00:07:21

his iPad, and they obey them in word and in action? They do whatever is required. So what do we see over here, that believing in the Ayat of Allah is not something small?

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

When a person says I believe he has to prove it.

00:07:26--> 00:08:11

So believing in the ayatollah is actually a big deal. Because a person can only believe when he has the capacity to accept when he has a capacity to acknowledge and of all the things that a person has to acknowledge. The first thing is what? acknowledging one's own mistakes and errors. Because typically, when we receive some advice, when somebody advises us, what stops us from accepting it, they're telling us that we are wrong, I don't want to accept I'm wrong. She's telling me that I have to change. Changing myself means Currently, I'm not doing the right thing. Why? Why am I wrong? I'm not wrong, why should I have to change, I'm not going to change. This prevents a person from

00:08:11--> 00:08:11

accepting.

00:08:12--> 00:08:20

And this is a sign of lack of emotion. This is a sign of lack of conviction. This is a sign of lack of love.

00:08:21--> 00:08:39

Because when a person truly has a man, what will he do? He will accept, he will acknowledge, and Firstly, what will he acknowledge his own mistake, his own error. And if you notice, what has been mentioned over here is even the cue when they are reminded. And remember that kid What does that mean?

00:08:40--> 00:09:24

To remind of something that has been forgotten, or record is also dimension, something you didn't know it was mentioned, you came to learn about it? You knew about something you had forgotten, you were reminded, and now you know what to do again. So you understand the kyrou. So either Tokyo will be here. Now, typically what happens? We learn, we start doing it, but then after some time we forget. I'm sure many of us knew already that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to recite the soul every night before going to bed. We knew about it. But how constant have we been in doing this? What happens? We start, and after some time we forget, we say, Okay, nevermind, I've been doing it for so

00:09:24--> 00:09:35

long. Let me take a break. So the kiddo is what that when they are reminded of the ayatollah, that this is something that you should be doing. This is something that you should be avoiding.

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

So it has to kill, what is the reaction that when they're reminded of what they're forgotten, or when they are told, when they are told that what they were doing was wrong, that they're at fault. They immediately change themselves according to the teachings of the law. They immediately change their behavior. There.

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

lifestyle according to the ayatollah, not that they're trying to alter the ayatollah, change them in order to suit their desires, or presenting excuses and clarifications, know their reactions of what acceptance of submissiveness that yes, I was wrong. Yes, I forgot. Yes, I should do this. Yes, I should not do it. And when a person reacts in this way, then what happens? Allah gives him the trophy as well. Allah gives him the ability to act on it as well. And if immediately a person responds in a way that no, no, it's not my fault. Why should I do it? I'm not going to do it, why should I have to change? Then what happens? He deprives himself of the trophy.

00:10:49--> 00:11:10

Because the first thing is what submissiveness acceptance when a person submits that Allah will give trophies, but if a person stands arrogantly, then he doesn't even want the trophy. And why would Allah give him the trophy? trophy is given to one who opens up his heart, who is willing, not a person who is not willing.

00:11:12--> 00:11:54

Many times it happens that we learn about something. But after some time, what happens we forget, or we learn about something, but we don't truly understand it. And what happens, our actions, they contradict what Allah subhanaw taala has said, and if somebody comes in tells us reminds us advises us, if our reaction at that time is of anger, of negativity, then what will happen, we will not be able to make a change. But if we are grateful that our 100 Allah, Allah sent this person who told me who had the confidence to correct me, and now I can fix myself, I can improve myself, then when a person is grateful than what happens elegance, empathy. So there is a complete difference in the

00:11:54--> 00:12:00

reaction of a person who reacts arrogantly towards the ayatollah, and a person who acts with humility.

00:12:02--> 00:12:07

And we see over here, that the reaction that is mentioned over here is hallucigenia.

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

And such the what is it a sign off?

00:12:12--> 00:12:55

It's a signer. submission, humility, servitude, acknowledging that I am small, because when you put your head down on the floor, what does it mean? You're nothing. You're putting your forehead on the floor. Just imagine the most dignified part of your bodies on the floor. What does it mean? What does that signify? I'm nothing. I'm small, I have no value. So, when a person submits like this before a loss of data, what does it mean? That he is confessing? He is acknowledging that he is small, he is weak, that he needs Allah. This is why it was good, work that in prostrate and draw closer to a loss of panatela

00:12:56--> 00:13:04

such that is a sign of submissiveness, humility and it is a means of attaining closeness to Allah soprano.

00:13:05--> 00:13:19

So this ayah is a very important I have the Quran because it serves as a mirror for all of us, that we should look at this ayah and reflect on our behavior, we should check ourselves in the light of this ayah that where do we stand?

00:13:21--> 00:13:30

What is our attitude with the Quran? That if we learn of something in the Quran, we learned about it already. But somebody reminded us

00:13:31--> 00:14:00

that the Quran highlights our mistakes, what do we do? What is our reaction? Do we present a list of excuses? I do this wrong because of such and such person, because of such and such reason, because of the circumstances I am in? Because I can do it. I don't like it. Is it a list of excuses? Is it blaming others? Or is it that we accept that? Yes, a lot. I know I should be doing it. I'm finding it difficult. You give me the fee.

00:14:01--> 00:14:08

And when a person makes the law, he humbles before Allah, then what will happen Allah will enable him as well. He will give him the trophy as well.

00:14:10--> 00:14:51

Think about it. being reminded of the Ayat of Allah is a huge favor. It's a huge blessing. If you think what is special about us that allows us to learn every I have this book, every word of this Quran, what's special about us, where we extremely righteous, where we like, extremely good towards others, very generous, very kind, very polite, that because we're so good, this is why Allah gave us this opportunity. Think about it, ordinary people. That's who we are, with many, many mistakes with many, many shortcomings. But if Allah has given us this huge favor, that we are being reminded of the eye out of a lot every single day

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

than the test is also greater. And what is that test that how do we react? Do we submit? Or do we stand arrogant

00:15:01--> 00:15:26

Do we thank Allah for this blessing and accept the reminder? Or we become upset and angry and frustrated and we feel constricted, that Oh my God, my life is becoming so difficult. And why do I have to do this? I cannot continue this way, when a person reacts with such negativity, that he's only being ungrateful for this huge blessing for this huge favor.

00:15:27--> 00:15:32

And when a person reacts in this way, in a negative way, then it shows that he doesn't really have.

00:15:33--> 00:15:42

He doesn't really have conviction. There's no love. There's no faith, because if there's faith, if there's love, then submissiveness will come.

00:15:43--> 00:15:51

Because think about it, love and submission, both of them, they go together, the one whom you love, you will listen to them.

00:15:52--> 00:15:55

And if you say you love someone, and you don't listen to them, what does it mean?

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

You don't love them?

00:15:58--> 00:16:05

Think about it. Someone says they love you. They really love you. And you ask them to do one thing for you. They don't do it. What do you say? Just

00:16:06--> 00:16:27

that's it. They don't mean it. Many times women complain all the time. My husband says he loves me. But when I asked him, he doesn't do anything for me. I am expected to do everything. And then we complain a lot that he has, he says he loves him, but he doesn't actually love me. She says she loves him, but she doesn't actually love me. But think about it, how do we react to a loss?

00:16:29--> 00:16:38

That he, out of his mercy has bestowed this huge favor on us that he's given us the freedom to be reminded by the ayatollah. But how do we react?

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

How is it that we behave?

00:16:43--> 00:16:49

Now, we learned at the beginning of the surah, that 10, zero kita. Now labor fee, never been on?

00:16:51--> 00:17:06

That this revelation of the book is from who? The Lord of the worlds and lovely Buffy there's no doubt in it. There's absolutely no doubt in it. So a person who truly believes in it that there is no doubt in the book of Allah. What will happen when he learns even one I have the

00:17:08--> 00:17:53

will he doubted? What do you think it's impossible to implement it? No. Will he think this is something outdated? This is not practical today? Will he know what he thinks this is not relevant to me? No, he will not think like that. Because he knows low labor fee. There's absolutely no doubt in the book of Allah. Yes, I may be weak, I may be at fault. But the book of Allah is free of any doubt. any errors, I have to fix myself. Not that I have to start fixing the book of Allah. No, I am supposed to fix myself. And we see that at the end of the aisle what has been said, or whom layer stuck below. And they're not arrogant. Because arrogance is one thing that prevents a person from

00:17:53--> 00:18:17

accepting, accepting what his mistake, accepting that he was wrong, accepting that he needs to change. This is what prevents a person from accepting arrogance, pride that a person thinks highly of himself. I know more. I know what's good for me. I know what I can do. I know what day and age I live in. I know what's practical for me. And I know what's not practical for me know,

00:18:18--> 00:18:27

the humble one, the submissive one, the true believer, he's not arrogant. You see, in order to gain anything, what do you need to do?

00:18:29--> 00:18:35

Give up to gain something, you have to give up something. If you want your favorite pair of shoes, you have to spend money.

00:18:36--> 00:18:43

If you want to travel somewhere, what do you have to do? You have to spend money, you can't get anything without giving something in return.

00:18:44--> 00:18:50

Now, if a person wants that they'll fail to implement the book of Allah, what does he need to give up?

00:18:51--> 00:18:51

His ego,

00:18:52--> 00:18:55

his arrogance, his pride.

00:18:56--> 00:19:03

And when a person sacrifices his ego, his pride, his arrogance, only then Allah will give him the ability.

00:19:05--> 00:19:14

And such a person will have no difficulty in accepting because he knows that condominium in dela all of it is from Allah subhanaw taala. So everything is worth following.

00:19:15--> 00:19:25

And we see many examples in the Sahaba. In the righteous people of the past that when they were reminded of the Ayat of Allah, what was their reaction? What was their behavior? Can you think of any incident

00:19:27--> 00:19:55

that we see many, many incidents about or muraleedharan that show how when he was reminded of something in the Quran immediately, he accepted immediately, even if it meant acknowledging his mistake in front of a huge crowd, that once in the hotbed, he was addressing the Muslims. Men were there, women were there. And because there was this new tradition of giving a lot of money to the women in marriage ceremony, learn how he was discouraging that.

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

And he said that no person should give my heart that is more

00:20:00--> 00:20:27

Then this certain amount to this woman stood up. And she said, Oh, I mean, you have forbidden increasing the mass of women to more than 400 at home. Have you not heard the words of Allah Wa, Tatum lochinvar on, fanatic who do men who shaden that if you have given to a woman at the time of marriage can pour a heap of treasure, a heap, then don't take anything of it back.

00:20:28--> 00:20:31

So remarkably, learn who he said, or love. Forgive me.

00:20:32--> 00:20:35

All the people have more understanding of religion than

00:20:36--> 00:20:42

and another tradition. We see that a little bit and when he said that Ahmad was at fault, and the woman was right.

00:20:44--> 00:20:52

And one was at fault. And the woman was right. He didn't say, Yeah, but that's in a particular context. And I'm the movement and I'm telling you,

00:20:53--> 00:21:17

he didn't say anything like that. He didn't say yes, we'll have a discussion later on. No, he accepted immediately. Why? Because that woman What did she recite? And I have the Quran. And when I have the Quran is recited. What should be the reaction of a person, humility, submissiveness, humble suggestion, or Subbu, who become jovial beam? Or Himalayas? Duck, we don't they're not arrogant.

00:21:18--> 00:21:59

We also see that at the time of the death of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he passed away, what happened? And what have they done? Who was not willing to accept that anybody say, even if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had died, and he was standing, and he said, If anyone says that he has died, I have the sword. That's it, you're done. But what happened then I will Boko did I know he came and he recited the I have the Quran that will now Mohammedan in our so called hotman cubberly universal ephah emerita Oh cotulla in caloptima are comical. While my other activating fellow Yoda, Rola O'Shea was a little shocking. We say that even our best lovely Daniel he said that by Allah. It

00:21:59--> 00:22:30

sounded as if people had never heard this Quranic verse until Abubakar recited it as a reminder. And people started reciting it till there was no man who did not recite it. It wasn't the tongue of every person. And a little did I know who was standing with the sword. What happened to him. He said that by Allah as soon as I heard, abubaker said, I fell down to the ground. I felt as if my legs had been unable to carry me. So I collapsed when I heard him say,

00:22:31--> 00:23:11

he could not stand anymore. And he collapsed. What happens when we find out we are wrong, and a verse of the Quran is recited, what happens? We begin looking for other verses to refute that. It says literally people are throwing verses at one another. This is disrespecting the ayatollah. These verses of the Quran are not to that we fight with one another, we argue with one another, we prove one another wrong. No, these verses are to make a change in us. And just the fact that a laws words have been recited there enough to make a silent,

00:23:12--> 00:23:30

we shouldn't become silent because all the other person has defeated us but rather we should become silent. Why? Because the verse of Allah has been right. And that's enough. And a person who has this kind of respect for the words of Allah subhanaw taala. He has humidity, and he has a trophy to implement.

00:23:31--> 00:23:57

What did we learn earlier? in sort of upon is 73 that will Lavina Eva luquillo will be at your beam lemmya Hadler. La has some men were omiana that they're about to rush man when they're reminded of the verses of Allah. They're not fall upon them deaf and blind. No, their reaction is out of deafness and blindness as if they have heard nothing. They have seen nothing. They have understood nothing. No, it's an instant humility.

00:23:58--> 00:24:05

It's an instant acceptance. It's about bringing about a change, and not standing stiff and arrogant.

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

Let me earlier someone were omiana.

00:24:10--> 00:24:24

And when a person has a man of this level, that when he hears the ayatollah, when he is reminded by them, he submits he's not arrogant, then what happens? It becomes easy for him to sacrifice anything in the way but

00:24:25--> 00:24:52

it becomes easy for him to sacrifice, his sleep sacrifice, as well. Sacrifice many things because acting upon the eyes of Allah means that we need to give up something. All those things we have to give up or sometimes, let's say our fashion styles. That's a huge thing for some people. For others. It might not be a big deal, but for others, oh my god, if I have to learn a violin, what about all those quotes?

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

When we had the discussion about Xena and about hijab there are so many questions about Okay, what about all the Xena t jobs and those

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

Job pins and all of that, what am I supposed to do with them? What is it required? sacrifice, right? You have a huge collection, which you can wear them all the time anymore. And all those things that you thought you'd be wearing outside now you have to cover them sacrifice. But when a person has a man of this level, it's easy for him. He can give it up. He can give it up for the sake of Allah soprano.

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

And when he gives it up for the sake of Allah, that Allah has a huge award for him or award that nobody has seen. Nobody even knows about it. It's that unique.

00:25:36--> 00:25:56

But all the things that are mentioned over here is what sacrificing sleep. This is why I Lost Planet Allah says that I Jaffa Juniper when they arise from their beds, and in my dog Jerry from their beds, yet the owner of the home this applicator Lord, how fun welcome Aaron in fear and who

00:25:57--> 00:26:04

woman models up in our home and on And out of that which we have given them? What do they do? They spend

00:26:06--> 00:26:21

if you think about it, many people what do they love the most? Sleep isn't it? Sleep is something that many people find very very difficult to get very very difficult to sacrifice.

00:26:23--> 00:27:01

Especially if it's something do early in the morning. We find it extremely difficult to give it up. But what do we see over here that when a person is a man of this level, it becomes easier for him to even sacrifice his sleep that a Jaffa you know boom their sides forsake What do they forsake animal Dodger their beds, that a Jaffa is from the fetters gene fair? Well, Gene fat well and the Jaffe is to be distant from something or someone to be separated from them to drift away from them. When does it happen?

00:27:03--> 00:27:16

When you don't like that person or that thing, this is why the Jaffe is also to have an aversion towards something to dislike something to load something avoided shun it, withdraw from it. This is what the jeffie is.

00:27:17--> 00:27:35

And the Jaffa soldier unloaded for us that the saddle it moved from the back of the horse meaning it God this located so the Jaffe is what to move away to become distant to get this located to not stay where one was before.

00:27:36--> 00:27:39

And it is that the Jaffa jumbo who I needed for

00:27:40--> 00:27:51

his side job is a Florida jump which is a sight sight of a person when you're lying down what's touching the bed, your sight, you're lying down on your side.

00:27:52--> 00:28:00

So the Jaffa jumbo an infill Raj, meaning he kept away from the bed, he kept his side away from the bed.

00:28:01--> 00:28:09

He kept away from the bed meaning he kept a distance between himself and his bed, separated himself from the bed avoided it

00:28:10--> 00:28:29

jfh fu is when someone does not remain in one place. That when a person is unable to remain peacefully in bed, because of restlessness. Because when a person is having a very comfortable sleep, what happens? He's sleeping on one side in one position. And after many hours, he's still in that position.

00:28:31--> 00:28:42

But if a person is restless, he's worried he's anxious. Then what happens? Is he able to sleep peacefully? No. Constantly he's tossing and turning. This is what the Jaffe

00:28:43--> 00:28:50

and eventually what happens constantly a person is tossing and turning and he can't stay in bed anymore. And eventually he gets

00:28:52--> 00:29:34

when does this happen? Have you ever experienced this? When does it happen? Okay, when you have an exam the next season you're waking up every 15 minutes. You waking up every half an hour. You have the alarm clock in front of you, but you get up before the alarm actually rings and what happens you can't stay in bed you're constantly tossing and turning you get up you go eat something you get up you go drink something, you gotta go to the washroom you gotta open up your textbook whatever you're anxious of you check your phone, you cannot stay in bed. This is what the Jaffe is so that a Jaffa you know boom, their sides for sake, they withdraw their sights they rise from their beds animal

00:29:34--> 00:29:47

Dodger, and Muladhara is a Florida mug jar. And mug jack is from both Jean ledger and ledger is to lie on one side and mug jack what kind of a noun is this

00:29:48--> 00:29:53

mug isn't rough. This is a place of lying down.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

The place of lying down now some people do sleep on beds, other people asleep on the floor.

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Wherever a person is sleeping, that is what

00:30:03--> 00:30:17

is major. So that the Jaffa Genova woman, Roger, they become so restless in their beds, they cannot stay there anymore. They don't remain firm and dead in their beds. But what happens? They get up,

00:30:18--> 00:30:29

they get up, they don't stay in their beds. And in my dog Jerry, the other owner of the home and when they get up when they stay awake at night, it's not for the purpose of amusement.

00:30:30--> 00:30:46

It's not for the purpose of talking to other people and having fun and talking to family members who are in another country. No, they get up why here the owner of the home, they call upon their Lord, how fun what a man out of fear and also out of hope.

00:30:47--> 00:30:52

They sleep but little and they engage themselves in prayer.

00:30:53--> 00:30:59

And when they pray, how do they pray? What are the two things that motivate them? How am Tama on

00:31:00--> 00:31:06

fear and hope, fear of what of the punishment of Allah, fear of the anger of of

00:31:07--> 00:31:39

fear that their good deeds will not be accepted? fear that alone will hold them accountable for the wrongs they have done. Fear of the amount of mistakes they have made, how often but this fear is not such that it paralyzes them. No, it drives them to come and humble themselves before Allah asked for his forgiveness. And with this fear is also from our hope, hope of what? Allah's mercy, his reward, his forgiveness, the fulfillment of his promises, how fun welcome, Aaron.

00:31:40--> 00:32:13

So their fear is not such that it paralyzes them. And their hope is not such that it makes them fearless. Because sometimes a person may be so hopeful that he becomes fearless that he does not fear the punishment of Allah anymore. And he hopes for Allah's mercy, his forgiveness, and he says he, Allah will forgive me, I can do whatever I want. No, they don't have this kind of hope. Nor do they have a negative kind of fear. It's such fear, it is such hope that makes them pray to Allah, that makes them increase in their acts of worship,

00:32:14--> 00:32:17

that makes them restless in the night.

00:32:18--> 00:32:24

How often will come on, and if you think about it, or that worship is about staying between hope and fear,

00:32:25--> 00:32:31

that a person does not give up hope. And a person does not even become so fearful that he cannot do anything.

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

A woman models economically and feel alone and from whatever that we have given them. They spend, why? Why do they spend

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

to please allow

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

to gain the level of a law

00:32:46--> 00:32:48

to gain closeness to Allah soprano.

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

If you think about it,

00:32:51--> 00:33:21

at times, you find it very easy to sacrifice, you know our food, like for example, fasting, okay, you get used to it, you don't eat. It's easy, it's possible. But sleep is something that many times we do not wish to sacrifice. But what do we see that London addled liver had that on fecal matter hibou that you can never attain a bill you can never attain righteousness, you can never attain reward. Until and unless you spend out of that which you love.

00:33:22--> 00:33:34

And think about it out of all those things that you love. Believe me, it's your sleep for many people, especially young people. Sleep is something that they love, which is why eight hours 10 hours, you have to sleep.

00:33:35--> 00:33:40

But only when a person sacrifices this in the way of Allah then he can attain a bit.

00:33:41--> 00:33:55

And if you think about in the previous I what was mentioned is that we don't they're not arrogant. So even if they have to give up their sleep for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, they give it up. When it's time to get up, they get up. When it's time to get up and pray. They get up and pray.

00:33:57--> 00:34:00

And the second thing that's mentioned over here is women mothers of color.

00:34:01--> 00:34:10

Because the second thing that a person loves a lot is what his possessions his Well, the things that he owns. It's difficult to apart from them.

00:34:11--> 00:34:21

We're in the Holy Grail, Heidi lasha deed, but if a person has true love for Allah, then it will become easier for him to even sacrifice as well.

00:34:22--> 00:34:59

Because this is something that is a fact that when you love someone, what will you do? You will sacrifice your sleep for them. And you will also sacrifice your wealth further. Think about it. A relative, a close friend comes over and they're staying the night and you're talking and it's 12 o'clock it's past midnight. When you say oh I should go sleep now. I'm very tired. I need to get up in the morning and have a lot of things to do. I need to go to school. Now what will we do? Will we ever say to them please I need to go sleep. No, we will never say that. We love to talk at night without

00:35:00--> 00:35:28

Friends with our family members, and it's so exciting. We go grab a cup of tea, coffee, go out to get a dessert or something. And then sit goes in the drawing room in the living room on the sofa, with the television on or something. And we're talking and talking and talking nonstop. One thing after the other, and although we're yawning, and our eyes are closing, but still what happens? We enjoy being going, isn't it? We love being away quiet. It's the company.

00:35:29--> 00:35:50

It's the company that we have at that time. The person who we love, we're talking to them. And as his guest is there is living at your house. They're living day in and day out. You spend on them so willingly, happily, they wish to go somewhere you say let's go. They wish to go shopping somewhere. I'll pay for it. They wish to go out to eat somewhere. You take the bill, why you love them.

00:35:51--> 00:35:57

So when you love someone, it's very easy for you to sacrifice your sleep and sacrifice your wealth.

00:35:58--> 00:36:18

Parents with little children. What happens from the day a child is born? sleepless nights, parents complain, but will they ever let the child cry and sleep? They will never do that. Will they ever not buy diapers? When the child runs out of diapers? No. They will go and buy

00:36:19--> 00:36:34

will they ever not buy clothes for the child when he's going out of his clothes? Never. They'll go and buy the drugs. So when you love someone, you sacrifice your sleep and you also spend from your wealth where my mouth is aka now home you and feel calm.

00:36:35--> 00:37:03

And you do it happily. You don't do it with feelings of that this is such a burden on me. This is so difficult. Can somebody else not take care of this person for me? No. You do it happily with excitement you enjoy it. But isn't it amazing that people when we love we do this for them so happily, but Allah soprano Darla when we claim to love so much when it comes to giving for him. When it comes to getting up for his sake. We find it so difficult. Why?

00:37:05--> 00:37:09

What's missing? Love? What's weak faith?

00:37:10--> 00:37:13

What's not there? certainty conviction.

00:37:14--> 00:37:36

So love demands sacrifice of sleep and wealth. And if we truly love Allah subhanaw taala then these two things are also necessary. Now primarily in this ayah the Hadoop is being mentioned. But the hatchet is something that is far from many of us. Think about fudge it even for many of us fudge it even is impossible.

00:37:37--> 00:37:46

It's impossible, that we don't get up ourselves. And when people are trying to wake us up what happens we become angry at them.

00:37:48--> 00:38:03

We become angry at them. That a Jaffa is a person is moving, he's not sleeping like a log. He's not sleeping in a way that you move him. You shrug him you shake him, you yell at his head, but he doesn't get up. And he says go away.

00:38:04--> 00:38:10

And if a person behaves like this, and there's no love in him, there's no fate. There's no yaqeen

00:38:11--> 00:38:18

because think about it, what is it that will make a person get it for free? No matter how tired and exhausted he or she is? What

00:38:19--> 00:38:28

it certainty? You mean? Think about it, that the tuner car budget, what do they serve as? As a protection for the entire day.

00:38:30--> 00:38:53

And a person must remember at that time that if I don't get up and pray, I will not be protected for the rest of my day. Then how can I survive? How can I survive? shaitaan is my enemy. So many dangerous around me? I'm so vulnerable? How can I not take some way of protecting myself? How can I not adopt a means of protecting myself?

00:38:55--> 00:39:00

So a person who uses your cane, what will he do? He will get up and he will pray he will not delay.

00:39:02--> 00:39:14

The thing is that when we get up sometimes what happens we stay in bed line and for how long? Half an hour, sometimes 45 minutes, waiting for what we're waiting for those last 510 minutes when we can get a good

00:39:15--> 00:39:53

one is that a person is really exhausted, really exhausted that their body is hurting, they're unable to get up. They're trying but they're unable to that's different. They're unwell, that's different. But the other is that you're just sleeping and sleeping and sleeping and you've rested enough you slept for a long time. And even if you didn't sleep for a long time, that's your fault because you went to sleep late whereas you could have slept earlier. But still if we remain in bed, delaying delaying delaying, then who's at fault, we're at fault that once our eyes open up once we are conscious than what should be our behavior of getting up instantly, immediately that the Jaffa

00:39:53--> 00:39:55

denuvo home and in mother Jerry

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

so what do we see over here that

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

A person who truly has love of Allah subhanaw taala. A person who truly has Eman in the eyes of Allah, who truly has faith in the Quran, what will you do? He will get up. When it's time to get up.

00:40:14--> 00:40:15

He will get up to pray.

00:40:17--> 00:40:25

Whether it is false Allah and after the false Allah, which is most beloved to Allah spanker dodges the night prayer. So he will get it for that as well.

00:40:27--> 00:40:44

Many times what happens when you have some important work to do? Are you able to sleep? No, you will force yourself to stay awake, no matter how tired you are, no matter how many people are telling you please go to bed now. It's late, what will we do? We will not sleep until we have done our work.

00:40:46--> 00:41:05

When you're excited to meet someone, when you're looking forward to something that you have to do, then again, you can't sleep like a log in the night, what will happen? You become restless. And you get up when it's time to get up even before that you'll get the cemetery if a person is excited about making their artola, how often will tomorrow? And then what will that enable him to do get up?

00:41:07--> 00:41:27

When a person has somewhere important to go, like for example, a big exam or an interview or something like that? What will they do? They will set an alarm clock, not just one, but multiple. And they will tell the entire family, please make sure I'm up? What else will they do, they will have their friend call them they will do so many things to make sure they're up.

00:41:30--> 00:42:04

The last part of the night is a time that we can have a private appointment with a loss of data in which we can just talk to him pray to him, ask him hopefully, tomorrow. And then that is a time when nobody else will interfere. Nobody else knows. Because what happens during the day you're sitting making the law, you're sitting you want to make the law, but 10 people are calling you 10 things you have to do, there's a list of things you have to do. But in the middle of the night, if you get up the last part of the night, then at that time, you have your sukoon you have your peace, you have your own space, your own private time,

00:42:05--> 00:42:24

we see that if a person has something extremely important to do, like, for example, a very early flight to catch. And they set the alarms but they don't get up asleep. And what happens the entire family tells them what were you thinking? Why didn't you get up? The entire family reproaches them?

00:42:25--> 00:42:30

What's wrong with you? How could you be so negligent? How could you be so careless? You lost all that money?

00:42:31--> 00:42:37

You missed your flight, your ticket, it's gone. It's finished. You didn't show up at the airport, it's gone.

00:42:38--> 00:42:50

The whole family reproaches the person but when it comes to missing budget, then what is the reaction of people? Typically, it happens? It's okay for later. If you've missed a flight, can you catch it later?

00:42:51--> 00:43:05

No, you can't. Even if you go to the airport? Can you catch it? You can't you go one hour late two hours late. You can't. But why is it that when it comes to fudger? We think oh, it's okay. I want prayer right now I'll pray when I get up.

00:43:06--> 00:43:07

It's not the same.

00:43:10--> 00:43:23

We learned to the previous is that on the day of judging people will wish that they be sent back so that they can do righteous deeds. People will beg they will request again and again. But will that request be granted? No.

00:43:24--> 00:43:37

So now is the time to do something. And if we miss one further after the other one night after the other one morning after the other one opportunity after the other, then will we be given another chance once we're gone? No.

00:43:39--> 00:44:19

And the second thing that is mentioned in this is women merasakan. At home, you and Phil come in and out of that which we have given them which we have provided them, what do they do? They spend? So what do we see over here, that those who believe in the Quran, those who truly believe in the Ayat of Allah, because this is directly connected with the previous ayah into my UBI atina that those people who truly believe in the Quran, what do they do they spend in the way of Allah from whatever that they have merasakan at home, from whatever that we have provided them, no matter what it is, no matter what the quantity is, no matter how big or how small, how much, how less, how much ever it is

00:44:19--> 00:44:54

what do they do they spend, they do not think, oh, should I give or should I not give whatever they have to spend out of it. And remember, this does not just include cash. What else does it include? Everything that you have every possession of yours, whether it is in the form of your dishes, or it is in the form of your clothes, your linens, your accessories, your makeup, your jewelry, anything that you possess is what your risk and risk includes your time. So those people who truly believe in the Ayat of Allah, what do they do? They're not selfish.

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

They're not stingy.

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

They don't hide their things.

00:45:00--> 00:45:31

away from other people. They don't keep their stuff with them only know they have an open heart. You see the sign of open heartedness that I can give this to someone, this person needs it, okay, I'll give it I can spend this in the way of Allah this will draw me closer to Allah earn me reward okay I'll give it open heartedness not tightness and when a person is open hearted like this, then when he learns about the ayatollah, what will he do? He will accept he will not say no, not for me, I cannot do it too difficult. No.

00:45:33--> 00:46:17

So, this is an entire attitude and entire behavior of acceptance, open heartedness. I should do this, okay, I should give this, okay. So from their wealth, from their time, from their energies from whatever that they possess, what do they do? They spend Moroccan alchemy and food to gain the pleasure of Allah. They spend on the needy they spend on their relatives they spend on those who are not related to them. They spend on those who ask those who don't ask those who appear to be needy, those who don't appear to be needy. They spend as other participant in the cat they spend in the form of gifts. They spend in order to serve the deen of Allah in order to strengthen the deen of

00:46:17--> 00:46:20

Allah when we Matos Oklahoma and Phil Koon.

00:46:21--> 00:46:26

So a person in whose heart the Quran has entered,

00:46:27--> 00:46:30

he cannot remain stingy and selfish anymore.

00:46:31--> 00:46:44

Why? Because he's always looking forward to more and more good deeds. He's always looking forward to getting more reward. What else can I do? What else can I do? What else opportunity Can I avail?

00:46:45--> 00:46:50

And if you think about it, the stuff that we have. One is that we keep all the stuff to ourselves.

00:46:51--> 00:47:32

And the other is that we spend out of it in the way of Allah. Imagine the reward that we could get by spending it in the way of Allah. And imagine the difficulty we would create for ourselves by keeping all those things with us. There's a difference right? You keep something with yourself. Sometimes what happens our kitchen is overflowing. We have no space to put our dishes. We love them. Our boxes, we love them, isn't it? We want to have everything in our kitchen we have no space. The drawers are overflowing. The cupboards are overflowing. The pantry is overflowing. But we love all of it. We keep it how difficult we have made our lives. And at the same time if we spend some of it

00:47:32--> 00:47:42

in the way of Allah, there's an opportunity to gain a lot of reward. So a person who's hard to pull on has entered. What does he want, he wants to reward. He doesn't want the things of Estonia.

00:47:44--> 00:47:50

This is why he will sacrifice his sleep and he will also sacrifice his wealth woman matters. Okay now when you don't feel calm.

00:47:51--> 00:47:57

And when a person is like this, then what kind of reward Allah subhanaw taala has preserved for him
