The one who responds to your Dora, who is he? The one who has made the night for you? Why? So that you can find rest in it? How is it that we find rest in night? How can we find sukoon? Or how can we gain sukoon in the night? How was it possible for us to do that? Because the night is dark, it is calm. It is also cool compared to the day when the sun is up. And the people are asleep the animals are asleep so as a result, it's easy for us to sleep as well. It is going to be
wonderful house and the day. Allah has made it mobile 01 that is right or one that gives visibility. Mobile said
the meaning of Giardia and it because it's from Bab if so, what is the one that enables the other to see. So the day is
that it enables you to see because of the Sun
because of the light. So when the Hara masala and because the day is mobile said this is why you're able to do so many things. In Allah Indeed Allah ledoux felina Island nurse he is surely possessor of bounty over people meaning he has a lot and he also gives a lot he's a Lord of bounty, when I can act on nasty lay Ashkelon, but most of the people they're not grateful.

But we see that the knight has a purpose, the day has a purpose. Similarly, the difficulties that we go through in life, the ups and downs that we go through in life, do they have a reason? Do they have a purpose? Yes, they do. What's the purpose of the night it brings you sukoon? What's the purpose of the day, it's such that you can do various things. Now, when you are in a difficult situation, what happens? It gives you a reason to make the rod
it gives you a reason to turn to Allah who should be making the raw anyway. But when you encounter a difficult situation, it makes you turn to Allah even more. So the knight has a reason it has benefits. Darkness has similarly difficulties in life, even they have a purpose. They teach us many things, which comfort and ease, cannot teach us what you learn in hard times. You don't learn through ease. If you look at use of nslm how he was taken out from the comfort of his home, taken away from the love of his father. And he was taken all the way to Egypt living as a slave in the house. There are these, but did he not learn so many things over there? Of course he did. Did he not
become familiar with the Egyptian people, of course, which is why when he received Prophethood, and he was given that high position in Egypt, he was able to benefit so many people, he was able to do that as well. So every situation in life has a purpose. This is why a person must never ever give up hope that I am in this difficulty in this pain will never go away. No. A person must not despair of the mercy of Allah. Rather, he should always look at the positive side.
The night it's dark, but does it not have a reason? A huge reason it's so beneficial. So similarly, every situation in life is also for purpose. And in every situation, whether it's night or day, difficulty or ease, we should remember to turn to Allah. Because if we remember Allah in ease, then Allah will also remember us in difficulties. And if we pray to Allah, in times of ease, then when we make the right times of difficulty, that door will be heard.

Upon distress, they suffered one distress after the other. Why? So you would not grieve for that which had escaped you or for that which had befallen you, meaning you become brave, you are able to face reality, you're able to face hardships in life. So darkness in our life. Yes, it's a phase. It's temporary. But it teaches us many, many things. And what keeps a person calm, what keeps a person positive, through the ups and downs in life is when he keeps turning to Allah for him. When he keeps making
any difficulty that a person is going through, he should never lose hope he should never give up hope. But rather he should keep making the automa and he should remember that there is a reason Ally's teaching me something. So Allah has made the night so that you can find rest and the day he has made maps like in Allahu Allah do Falkland Islanders, Allah, He gives so much to people. When people they become negative.

When there is nightfall and they think they have never experienced any good

If Allah has deprived you in one way, he's giving you so much in other ways. When I can ask for a nurse Elijah Sharon must be people. They're not grateful.

So my euphrasia complex, then he produces you, he takes you out from where from the wombs of your mothers, as playful as infants. playful, is isn't just it can apply to boy, girl, baby a child. And it's on the roof of his farfalla. puffy remains to be soft, to be

After a few weeks, eventually what happens once they harden. So suddenly you can compare flare, he produces you as infants, and then what happens, somebody who I should duck and then you will attain your majority. Children. What happens to them as important they keep growing each and every day. Every week. They keep growing until they reach I should, I should is the age of majority. It's basically the age when all of a person's abilities become firm and strong. He is physically strong. He is mentally strong.
Emotionally, you're strong children, what happens to them, something's fine. They start crying. And the smallest of things, they start crying. They display their emotions, they can't control them.
But adults, what happens to them? They don't cry like children do. Similarly, children, they don't have much knowledge compared to adult children, they don't have much physical strength compared to an adult. So I should call when your abilities have reached their peak. And a person also has the ability to distinguish between what is good, what is bad, what is right, what is wrong, what is reasonable, what is unreasonable. Because a little child, you take something away from him that he should not be playing with? Does he understand? He doesn't.
But an older person, he has that reason, a child does not have that reason. And it is said that I should is the age between 30 and 40 is a true
life, for example, teenagers, they think they know everything. They think they can make their own decisions, but can they sometimes make the most foolish decisions, and they end up harming themselves? You see, when a person has reached the age of 30, they have a bit of life experience.
They become mature in the way they deal with different things.
And when a person is young, in their teens in their 20s, what are they concerned about having fun.
They're not that responsible, after 30 that is when people become more responsible, they become serious about life. And they realize that life is about not just having fun, but life is about taking care of other people preparing for your answer, because when you hit 30, then it hits you. It really hits you that 30 years of my life gone. And at 20 years, people can't wait to be older.
When they're 16, I can't wait to be 18. See, I'm a teenager, this is why people are always discriminating can't wait to be older. So this is very true that a should is the age between 30 and 40. Because a person has life experience,
up until the age of 30 are only experiencing life. Like for example, a person becomes a parent cannot figure out how to deal with a child.
But when a person reaches 30, then you know how to deal with children. You know how to deal with different different types of people, because you have some life experience.
Many times at age 30 people become serious about their life. Before that. It's about having fun, enjoy with your friends go out, go shop, go do this. But a youth who spends his youth his time in the worship of Allah his reward will be much greater. Why? Because he is spending that time of life when many people are concerned about having fun in the worship of Allah.
So somebody who I should
somebody Taku you and then you become sure you should do is a chlorella shake from the fetters, Shinya. And Shane is used for someone who is elderly. And primarily, it's used for someone who is elderly in the sense that he's old in age. And it's the age between 50 and 80.
So when does a person become senior
when he hits 50.
But this is a word that is also used for someone who deserves his life. For example, if someone is very knowledgeable,
or someone who passes judgments, decisions for people, then the word shave is also used for them. Chef does not just mean that they're extremely aged. So you go ask the chef, how old are you? Okay, you're not 50 I'm not gonna call you shake, no, shake is not just someone who has hit 50 but also someone who deserves respect because of their knowledge because of what they do. So somebody's gonna show you what do we learn over here, that Allah is the one who causes you to pass through these different stages of life.
You were and
then and then,
then you reach your should, and then you become sure you
well men come and from you may use the word feminine kaaboo. The one who is taken meaning who is given that from before before when
before even he becomes a playful.
Before even he hits the age of a should, or before even he hits the age of being a shake. So women commend you to our family Kakou some people they go through all these stages of life and others, they don't get to experience the later stages of life
and others would have
To them, they live on what he termed coup de la Muslim, and so that you will reach a fixed time, a defined length of time, a time that is fixed from before? And what is that the time of your death? Whatever it may be, whether it's childhood, adulthood, or old age, what are our local dark cologne? And so that you understand, understand what from this? What do we have to understand from this?
What do we learn from this, that Allah is the one who makes us go through different different stages of life, and he can stop our life anytime as well.
It's not in our hand.
It's only in the control of Allah, and only Allah. So you understand the evidence of his withdraw of his power, of his ability of his oneness. And thus submit to Him willingly, that when he is the one who takes you from one stage of life to the next, and why not submit to Him,
who led you here where you need to, it is he who gives life and he gives that and you see, this status is something very important as well. That if a person is given a long life to live, that is by whose permission unless the Pentagon, if a person is given a short life to live, then that is also at the will of Allah subhanaw taala.
So, do we have the right to object?
He died too early.
She died too young.
Do we have the right to say that? No, we have no right to say that. Because who led you here where you meet He is the one who gives life and he also causes death for either other than when he decrees a matter for nmi akula who confiable he just has to be and it happens it comes into existence as he has wilted. So nothing at all is difficult for him. He can give life he can cause death.
Therefore we are the ones to object and it's very easy for him to cause anything to happen. And this is also a proof of resurrection. That if he makes you go through different different stages of life he gives you like he causes you to die. Then you can also recreate you
insert an ally or 40 in nemacolin Alisha in either ordenado and Nicola who come for you. That our work for a thing when we intended is what we say to it be and it happens.
Listen to the recitation.
say do follow
tomia won't be mean to
teaches us how to do or how to call people to Allah. And if you see many either mentioned konia, because they make a person uses mind reflect and realize the power of Allah, and ultimately submit to Him. So the author mentioned over here, they're very beautiful in a way that they make a person think they make a person uses mind that really all power is with Allah, that the stages of life, we have no control over it.
The night and they, there is a reason behind that everything that alone makes everything a lot besides everything, a lot of commands, there's a reason behind that.
So the AI that are given, they're very beautiful, perfect for calling people to
something everybody can relate to whether Muslim or non Muslim. So this is something this is something where you how you can call people to Islam by telling them how you should mean to only Allah. Exactly.
I was just thinking the acid was our coffee. So
most of the time, like girls has this, like they have a low self esteem, they think I'm not beautiful. I have this and that. If Allah said that Allah fashion in this matter, why would we care about what people think.
And we are no one's to find faults in the bodies of other people, in their appearance, in their faces, in their height, in their skin, we are no one's to do that. Because for us and us work on whatever form Allah is given to a person. It's excellent, it's most beautiful.
As we are going through these verses, it reminded me of a story of when I lived in Atlanta, Georgia, I had a neighbor of mine, she was a Muslim, but she left Islam because she was having so much hardship in her life. And she kept telling me I kept making dua to Allah, and I wasn't getting anything answered. And I thought how desperate you could have been to make you leave Islam and how important it is to let people know that Allah does answer your eyes, and to let them know the conditions of how to get your eyes answered or to reassure them that it's not a law, that it's a fault, maybe you're doing something wrong.
And many people go through the setting keep making the wrong and if what they want is not granted to them, then to stop making go out altogether. And you see them regressing going backwards in their deed, leaving solar, and they say oh, I don't pray anymore. I don't need that anymore. It hasn't worked for me at all.
But the fact is that Allah has said as the Jubilee icon, we need to reflect on ourselves and we just remember that example, knife. It cuts but you're not using it the proper way. You're not using it at the proper place. You're using it in the incorrect way. So it's a tool is also a tool. It is effective. However, you have to use it the proper way you have to fulfill the conditions.
Maybe there is a fault in us. Maybe there's a fault in our actions. It cannot be that Allah does not answer
Because Allah and woman are still coming. No one is more truthful that Allah and Allah He fulfilled his promises if he has said that he will come He will definitely respond.
I was thinking about the story, sister, she just said, we should think about Allah subhanaw taala like, course for the line. masala Allah, Allah have a best example. But you should think like a mother. When the kid he asked her, I want chocolate for dinner, the mother, she's gonna give chocolate? No, she will give him health food. So Allah when we asked him something, and he know it's not good for us, he's not gonna give us he will give us inshallah something good and better. Yes, better. And I was thinking about the ayah, who will hire you La Ilaha Illa. Allah is the high. So we call in high North that day.
And you see, sometimes it's quite possible that we're making the offer something that's not good for us. We're praying for something that's not correct for us. So if Allah is not accepting our world, the way we want it to be accepted, then isn't that in our favor? Of course it is. Similarly, imagine if a person is going through a difficulty he's constantly making why Yeah, I'll remove this difficulty from me. But that difficulty Allah does not remove it from him. Why? Because as long as the difficulty is upon a person, he is constantly going to Allah, he's getting a pathogen. He is making the are constantly day in day out crying before Allah, he has more for sure, in his Salah.
And if the difficulty was not there, then what would happen? He wouldn't be bothered to do many acts of worship that he's doing now. So sometimes it's quite possible that Allah delays and accepting the DA why because he loves it rather we're making he loves the submissiveness to humanity that we're showing.
And the thing is that if they do something wrong, and they make too and it's granted, they made the wine the wrong way. Like for example, the person goes to a grave. He offered sacrifice over there and he says, Yes, my wish was fulfilled doesn't happen. People say that. Why does it happen? It says it.
It's actually a lesson just entering the eye. It's not these people. Of course, definitely it's along with answering the door but it's respect that a person has been given that he is doing something wrong, but still he remains firm on it.
