So let's move on to the lesson and we will do the sear off the following is are you ready? Are we the biller? Human is shaytani R rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Elif Lam, Meem?

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

What are these letters?

00:00:15 --> 00:00:17

Hello, hello Katara?

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

Do they have a meaning? A literal meaning? No. Then why are they there in the Quran? What's the purpose?

00:00:26 --> 00:01:07

exactly these hooks are there to show to prove the miraculous nature of the Quran that these hooks people use all the time. People utter the sounds these letters all the time, but they cannot produce anything that is similar to the Quran. Then he can kita WillowTree Buffy that is a book which book the Quran? What's the characteristic of this book? loughrea Buffy there is no doubt in it. What does it mean by that? There is no doubt in this book. Yes, there's no doubt in the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who revealed it. What other doubt could there possibly be in the mind of the listener? Okay, that there's some falsehood in it. There's some faults in this book. So Allah

00:01:07 --> 00:01:51

subhanaw taala says, lovely Buffy, there is no doubt in it mean there's nothing doubtful in this book. So in other words, every statement every word of this book is true. It is factual it is 100% true. So tell me something, do you need a study or a research or a scientific theory or something like that a discovery to prove what's mentioned in the Quran? Do you need it? You don't need it? Because many times we think that oh, you know, this is mentioned in the Quran? Does the science prove that? Is there any evidence for that? We don't need any scientific evidence when Allah subhanaw taala has said something? What is it? It's 100% True. So whether science supports what's

00:01:51 --> 00:02:37

mentioned in the Quran or not? What are we to do? Believe it accepted as 100% true and beneficial. So low labor fee he who then will move to gain a guidance for who? Those people who have Taqwa does the Quran only give information. Does the Quran only give knowledge? Know the Quran? Yes, it gives knowledge. But along with that, it's also a source of guidance for mankind. And especially Who who is it that takes guidance from this book? Those people who have Taqwa. Now what's the literal meaning of the word Taqwa? To take a shield? Why would you take a shield to protect yourself to save yourself? Okay, so this was the literal meaning that Dakwah is to take shield to protect yourself

00:02:37 --> 00:03:11

and what's the technical meaning? The technical meaning of the word Taqwa technically means you have written this definition down, I just want you to know the difference between the literal and the technical. Alright, because from now on, I'll be using these terms a lot. The literal meaning of this word is such and such and the technical meaning of this word is such and such. So the literal meaning of Taqwa is to take shield to protect oneself, technical meaning to protect oneself from the punishment of Allah. How, by doing what He has commanded and staying away from what he has forbidden, because only then can a person save himself from the punishment of Allah. So Taqwa is to

00:03:11 --> 00:03:55

live a very conscious life very careful life. Now tell me what are some of the benefits of Taqwa the core is the key to knowledge and Taqwa is also the key to action. So therefore, the coin is the way to success. And the coin is what makes a person live a meaningful, purposeful life. This is what makes a person careful in whatever he does, how he behaves, what he says what he listens to. So he's living a life of purpose. He's not living a life that is aimless. He's not following his desires. So Allah subhanaw taala says that book loughrea Buffy, there's no doubt in it. Hold a little water clean. It's a guide for those people who have Taqwa. In the following I act we learn about the

00:03:55 --> 00:04:28

characteristics of the person who has the core. So far, we have only learned what the word decoy means. Now in the following I add we will be learning about the characteristics of people who have Taqwa. What does it mean to have Taqwa? If a person says I want to have taqwa, then what should they do? How can a person increase in their Taqwa? Allah subhanaw taala tells us first of all, I ladina you maroon a bit of AB those people who believe in the unseen

00:04:29 --> 00:04:59

secondly, why you Ki Moon A sigh Salah and they established the salah. Thirdly, while me ma was Akane home, une fille cone and out of what We have provided them they spend fourth characteristic one Lavina you may know gonna be my own Zilla, a Laker and those people who believe in what we have revealed to you. The fifth characteristic one our own Zilla mencoba Lika and they also believe in what was revealed before you and this

00:05:00 --> 00:05:46

Six characteristic what will karate whom you clone they believe in the hereafter with conviction. So six characteristics of the motorcade are mentioned over here. As we study these characteristics, what are we to do? Analyze ourselves in the light of these traits and also plan that what do I need to do? What do I have to do? Because until and unless a person has these qualities, he will not have the club. And if a person does not have taqwa, can he benefit from the Quran? He cannot benefit from the Quran. So if we want to benefit from the Quran, we have to focus on these qualities. Alright. The first quality of the Magdalene is worth that they believe in the unseen Alladhina Umina. Umina

00:05:46 --> 00:06:30

is from the root letters Hamza meme Loon, Hamza may noon. And you may notice from the word Iman, what does the man mean? faith belief. I told you the root letters are Hamza mean known from the same root is the word among among means security, safety. Do you think there's a connection between faith and security? Amen, and being safe? What's the connection? That if a person has Iman he is safe, for example, from going astray? What else save from hellfire from punishment? That's the main connection between Iman and

00:06:31 --> 00:07:13

and also you see Iman, it brings peace to a person. Why? How that when a person is going through some difficulties going through some trial. If he has Eman, strong faith in Allah subhanaw taala then what's going to happen? You will think Allah knows what I'm going through. Whatever is happening is happening for a reason. There is some wisdom behind it. So a person is comforted at times of difficulty because of the emotion that he has. And when a person doesn't have faith. Then he becomes upset and angry. What did I do to ever face this? What did I do to ever feel like this? This is not fair. So Eman brings Amman in this dunya and also in the hereafter. Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:13 --> 00:08:03

says over here Alladhina Umina Belhaj EB now literally, MN Eman means fit. What is the technical definition of iman Eman? Technically Is this the morale COBOL. While is on what were these words, I'll explain them to you dust the dust leak is to affirm the truthfulness of something. When you affirm the truthfulness of something you believe that it is a fact you believe that it's 100% True. So for example, the person says I believe in Allah, what does it mean? He affirms the existence of Allah subhanaw taala the truthfulness of his existence he affirms that Allah subhanaw taala is there Allah subhanaw taala has the qualities that he describes himself with. Similarly, he believes that

00:08:03 --> 00:08:45

Allah subhanaw taala is the rub he is the Maliki is the Holic. All right, so does the to affirm the truthfulness of something. But is that what faith is all about? No, after this leak comes Cabul Cabul is to accept it as well. For example, we see that there are many people who say that yes, the Prophet sallallahu sallam was a very wise man, he was a very intelligent man, the most successful person, you may have come across many articles, many books even by authors who are not Muslim. But what do they acknowledge the greatness of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they acknowledge it, but do they accept it in the sense that they say yes, we believe in him as a messenger? Do they? Not

00:08:45 --> 00:09:30

necessarily. There are many people who have written even books about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam but they don't accept him as a messenger. Eman is not just about saying yes this is true. Eman is about Yes, this is true. And I accept it. And thirdly, Eman also includes is the arm is the arm is submission. What does it mean by the submission that whatever your faith requires you to do you also do that. For example people will say yes, I know that Mohamed Salatu Salam is the last messenger. Yes, I accept him as the last messenger. But his sunnah I cannot follow it. I'm not going to do it is that complete Eman? There's something deficient. Complete Iman is one that a person affirms the

00:09:30 --> 00:09:59

truthfulness. He accepts and he submits as well. This is what Iman is so Allah subhanaw taala says over here and Medina you're gonna believe it. They believe in the unseen what is labor? Labor's from the root letters rain Yeah, but and labor literally is that which is hidden. That which is hidden that which is absent meaning it's not in front of you. It's not within the reach of your senses.

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

You cannot see it, you cannot hear it, you cannot smell it, you cannot touch it, you cannot feel it. It's beyond your senses. This is what live is for the same root is the word libre. What does leave mean backbiting, right? What does it mean by backbiting that a person is absent? He is not there, and a person who's talking bad about him. So you understand he is if he is absent, he's not there. He's not there. And another person is talking bad about them. This is LIBOR. So Labour's what that which is not in front of you that which is hidden from you.

00:10:39 --> 00:10:41

Now, remember that there are two types of labor.

00:10:43 --> 00:11:00

There are two types of labor two types of unseen. One is labor that is mutlak mean absolute. There is no way that we as human beings can ever see it. Touch it, feel it, it's not possible. Like for example, the Day of Judgment.

00:11:01 --> 00:11:47

Or let's say Janna, hellfire. Is that part of the unseen? Is it part of the unseen? Yes, it is. Is there any way that while we are in this dunya we see Hellfire we see Jana? Is it possible? No. Okay, a person may have a dream while he's sleeping. But that also is based on what kind of his imagination All right, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in his Hadith, what do we learn about Jana? What No, I have seen, no ear has heard its description even. Right? So it's completely hidden from people. Gender is what part of the unseen and that unseen, which is absolute, unseen, there is no way that we can ever see it, touch it, feel it, come across it. Another type of Labor's that which

00:11:47 --> 00:11:49

is misspeak meaning that which is relative?

00:11:50 --> 00:12:34

Relative what is mean by that? Like, for example, what is happening upstairs in one of the rooms? Can we see it? No. Can we hear what's going on over there? No. So yes, that is unseen, hidden from us. But is it hidden from everybody? It's not hidden from everybody. For example, if you decide to go and check what's going on upstairs? Can you go find out? Yes, you can. But if you decide to go and you say that I'm going to go find out if there really is Jana? Could you do that? You can't do that. So there's some parts of the unseen, which you can come across which you can prove which you can see. But there are some parts of the unseen, which you can never see. Until you're here in this

00:12:34 --> 00:13:22

world. When you die. Yes, you can see it, you can come across it. So you understand what labor is the two types of lay over here was a paneled artists Alladhina. You want to believe them with the cleaner, those people who believe in the unseen? What is this unseen? This unseen, is everything that Allah subhanaw taala has informed us about and we cannot see it, we cannot hear it, our senses cannot perceive them. You understand? So they've includes, for example, the existence of Allah subhanaw taala. For example, His angels, for example, the messengers that he sent in the past, that's also believing in the unseen. For example, in the Quran, we learn Allah subhanaw taala sent

00:13:22 --> 00:14:01

the messenger No, hello, Salam. Is there any way that you could scientifically prove that? Can you you can't? Allah is telling you, that's the only reason why you believe in it. That's the only reason why you accept it. Similarly, it includes whatever Allah subhanaw taala has told us about the matters of the Hereafter from what's going to happen in the grave, do what's going to happen on the Day of Judgment, do what's going to happen in Jannah, what's going to happen in hellfire, anything that Allah subhanaw taala has told us about whether it's about himself, or about certain events, or about certain individual to certain places, whatever that our senses cannot perceive, what is that

00:14:01 --> 00:14:21

light that is unseen. So with the cleaner, who Alladhina Yamuna bill AB, those people who believe in the unseen who believe in the unseen. In other words, they believe in whatever Allah subhanaw taala has told them about Alladhina Umina believe.

00:14:23 --> 00:14:24

Now tell me something.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:28

Why is it so important to believe in the unseen?

00:14:30 --> 00:14:55

Why is it so important to believe in the unseen? If a person says, No, I'm going to use my intellect. If I don't see something, I'm not going to believe in it. If I cannot hear something, I'm not going to believe in it. You have to prove it to me. If I see because there are people who have said such things, we don't see God. I'm not going to believe in God. People say that. We don't see angels, prove that they're angels. How do you know there will be a day of judgment?

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

So many people say that so tell me when

00:15:00 --> 00:15:31

Why is it important to believe in the unseen? If a person does not believe in the unseen, then what is he doing? He's challenging the word of Allah subhanaw taala. Because what is my what Allah has informed us of? Allah says right at the beginning of the book, low labor feet, there's no doubt in this book. So if a person says, no, these angels, I cannot see them, I'm not going to believe in them. This is what challenging the word of Allah subhanaw taala? Why else? Is it necessary to believe in the unseen? That gives your life a meaning of purpose? If you think about it, human beings

00:15:32 --> 00:16:21

by nature, how are we curious? We want to know how and why things happen. children when they're very small, what do they ask, what is this? As they grow older? They say, why is this? So? My son, he's two and a half years old? And these days, everything is? Why, why? Why? Everything is why. So as human beings, we're like this, if we're curious about how an apple can fall from a tree, what is it that causes the apple to fall to the ground from a tree? If we're curious about how plants can grow? If we are curious about how you know, the day and the night come into rotation? Then are we not concerned about where we came from? Where we are going? Why we are here? Of course we are. This is

00:16:21 --> 00:17:06

within every human being this is in the nature of people, why am I here? What's my purpose? Why am I alive? Where did I come from? Where am I going? So these questions cannot just be answered by our brain. They cannot be answered just by our intellect, or just by our research, you need the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala. So these questions are answered by what? By hype. You are here because Allah created you. You are here, because you have to worship Allah, and where are you going? What's your end? The hereafter? And what's that for, for recompense? So these answers, can you get them from your intellect, you cannot get them from your intellect. This is why it's necessary to believe

00:17:06 --> 00:17:08

in the unseen Alladhina. You may know in a real hate

00:17:10 --> 00:17:54

any other reason why it's necessary to believe in the unseen wave is the foundation of faith. It's the foundation of Eman. If a person does not believe in the unseen, that he doesn't have any emaan because think about it, Quran we believe that this is the word of Allah subhanaw taala. And the Quran has been revealed by Allah on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if a person does not believe in the concept of worship, where he is also, Revelation is also part of the unseen if a person does not believe in that, then he won't believe in the Quran. If a person does not believe in the unseen, he doesn't have any faith. It's the foundation of Imam without EMA without leap. There is no iman.

00:17:55 --> 00:18:22

This is why we see a Ladino you know, believe that's the first characteristic that's mentioned over here. Another very important reason why it's necessary to believe in the unseen is that it's the foundation of Taqwa as well. It's the foundation of the core belief in the unseen how, for example, Allah subhanaw. Taala tells us that whatever we do whatever we utter, there are two angels. Were recording everything. Do we see those angels?

00:18:23 --> 00:19:10

No, we don't see those angels. If we were to see those angels who are recording everything, would we be careful? Yes, we would be careful, obviously. Is that a big deal? No. This is just like, if there's a camera on you, obviously, you become very careful and alert, isn't it? But don't when the cameras away. You're like normal. Now, we don't see the angels. We don't see the angels. But we believe that the angels are recording. Right. And this is what makes us careful conscious about our actions about our words about our behavior. So what is the root of the court the foundation of the core belief in the unseen? Similarly, the Day of Judgment? Have you seen it? No. Has anybody seen

00:19:10 --> 00:19:42

the day of judgment here? No. We haven't seen it it will be in the future. But because a person believes in the Day of Judgment, does he become careful about his actions? Yes. Does he become a more responsible person? Yes. So the Motorin How does Allah subhanaw taala describe them first of all Alladhina you're gonna believe those who believe in the unseen secondly, why you pay Munna salata and they establish the Salah, UK Munna is from the root letters off well mean

00:19:43 --> 00:19:52

off well mean and karma Yakumo literally is to stand from the same root is the word PM, what does pm mean?

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

Have you done pm lane? What is the Yama Lane, the salah that we pray when it

00:20:00 --> 00:20:37

In the night, like for example, in the month of Ramadan in the masjid people go at night and what do they do pm will lay, they're gonna pray Salah at night. So Salah, in other words is called pm as well especially that which we perform in the night of the month of Ramadan. Why? Because what's the main thing that we're doing? We're standing in prayer, we're standing in prayer and we're reciting the Quran so Pm is to stand our way up Ummah to stand in a coma from witches the word up Munna iqama is to make something stand to make something upright, to establish something

00:20:38 --> 00:21:00

you understand it karma is to establish something to make something else than to make something upright. So what do they said right? What do they make upright? A solid, the salah. What does Salah mean? Are you familiar with the word salah? What is for loving prayer, which prayer just like you You Raise up your hand and you pray to God is that what Salah is. This is

00:21:01 --> 00:21:07

when you raise your hands and you just make prayer. What's that drop? what is Salah? It's different from the

00:21:08 --> 00:21:14

salah is the ritual prayer, which is performed in a particular way.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:21

Because some people say, well look at the word Salah it means prayer. So they just pray to God.

00:21:22 --> 00:22:08

No, that's not what the meaning is. Solid is the ritual prayer like for example, the five daily prayers are for example, there eat prayer, or for example, the Janaza prayer the numeral Salah Salah includes all of these different Salawat whether it's the five daily prayers the Juma one or the Eid one danessa any prayer that the Prophet sallallaahu Salam has taught us so we're here Allah says up Munna salata. What does it mean by making the salah upright? What do you think, establishing the Salah when you make something of pride when you make something stand? What does it mean by that? That you're fixing it? You're putting it as it should be. For example, if this stand is lying on the

00:22:08 --> 00:22:55

ground, is this a karma? No, but if I pick it up, and I put it upright, then I'm putting it as it should be, isn't it so? So karma to Salah is to establish the salah to give the view of the Salah to give the hack of the Salah to pray a Salah as it should be prayed to pray Salah as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us to pray, what did he say so Luca was a to Mooney who suddenly pray as you see me praying. So a comma to Salah is not just to pray whenever a person feels like pray, however a person feels like no, a call with a Salah is to pray in the way that the Prophet salallahu Salam taught the way that Salah should be prayed

00:22:57 --> 00:23:31

and in particular a call with a Salah includes four things. The karma to Salah includes four things. First of all, your karma to Salah includes performing the salah regularly with consistency, not one here, one there for a day, three a day, no, regularly consistently five times a day. This is what you call it the Salah is first of all, secondly, it called the salah includes performing the Salah in the prescribed times as well

00:23:32 --> 00:23:33

in the prescribed time.

00:23:34 --> 00:24:14

We know that for every Salah there is a certain time, a time when Daniel de Salah enters and the time when the time of the Salah comes to an end. If you pray after that your Salah is Allah if you pray before that time, it's also not valid. So there is a particular window for every Salah a karma to Salah is to pray within that window, not delaying it, you understand? Thirdly iqama to Salah is to perform the salah in the prescribed way as well in the prescribed manner as well. What does it mean by that?

00:24:15 --> 00:24:54

When you think about the way of Salah, the particular manners of Salah, remember that there are certain prerequisites. And then there are certain conditions and pillars as well. Like for example if a person does not perform will do. I'm too tired, too lazy, can't be bothered performing well too. It's too cold anyway. And their prey is that Hamas wanna know, if a girl says I can't be bothered wearing a proper hijab and her hijab is see through her hair showing. Or let's say she's wearing sleeves that are short so her arms are showing or let's say work clothes or short her shirt is short so when she bends down to shirtliff slightly she doesn't bother to wear proper clothing for

00:24:54 --> 00:24:56

solid will that Salah be accounted for Salah

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

you have to fulfill all the

00:25:00 --> 00:25:11

conditions, all the prerequisites as well. Similarly facing the Qibla. Is that a condition? Yes. If a person says yeah, the cupola is this way, but it's more convenient to pray this way

00:25:12 --> 00:25:43

can you do that? No. Fulfilling the conditions the prerequisites as well as the pillars of solid what is mean by the pillars of solid that the major parts of solid must be performed and if they're not performed so as embedded, for example, when it comes to the recitation of Surah Fatiha in Salah, is that mandatory? Yes, if a person does not recite to the Fatiha his rocker is not valid. Similarly, if a person says I can't be bothered doing the nuclear Forget it I'll just skip the record I'll go down to such the his headphone icon with a solid no way Is that valid No way.

00:25:45 --> 00:26:29

So it was a solid includes all of this and fourthly account with the salah also includes performing Salah in congregation in Jamara. Now doesn't mean that for every solo person has to pray in Jamara What if a person is alone? It's not a requirement, but perfectly establishing the Salah means performing the Salah in congregation, especially when there is a Jamar going on. Like for example, we are here when select Lotus prayed. We hear the event. So if we're here, what are we to do? Pray in congregation you want to let me just pray quickly myself because I want to go eat? No, you're not going to pray quickly yourself. You have to pray in the Jamara All right, and this is especially for

00:26:29 --> 00:27:18

men, especially for men that they should pray in congregation. So when you pay Munna salata and they establish the Salah, now think about it, if karma the Salah, performing the salah properly, giving it its do, praying it with the proper etiquette, this is a part of the qua. Who will do this. A person who has taqwa, who will perform Salah properly, a person who wants to save himself from the punishment of Allah, a person who wants to be saved in the Hereafter, he will give importance to Salah if you think about it, all these four points that I've told you about establishing the Salah. What do they tell us that a person is serious about prayer. He gives importance to prayer because a

00:27:18 --> 00:27:37

person who is not that serious about salah is he going to bother praying and Jamar know a person who does not give much importance to Salah is he gonna pray Salah at the proper time? No, he's going to give preference to his sleep or he's going to give preference to whatever he's doing instead of sunnah.

00:27:38 --> 00:27:47

So, who gives importance to Salah, the person who has the core. Is it important to give importance to Salah.

00:27:48 --> 00:28:05

Yes, why? Because if a person does not give importance to Salah that means he does not have Taqwa. If he doesn't have the core, what does that mean? He's not going to benefit from the Quran. So if we want to benefit from the Quran, if we want to make this journey meaningful, then what do we have to pay attention to

00:28:06 --> 00:28:28

our prayer? Because prayer? What is it? If you think about it, who are you talking to? Who are you bowing yourself before? Allah subhanaw taala it's the manifestation of once a man a person says Allah I believe in you Allah I fear you Allah AI cannot do what he can history and when it comes to submitting before Allah, too tired,

00:28:29 --> 00:29:14

I'm too busy, can't be bothered. No, there's a discrepancy then. There's a huge discrepancy between what a person is saying and what he's doing. If you say yeah, Connor will do it yeah kind of story. Then you better show it How are you going to show it by giving importance to Salah, praying the Salah as it should be prayed when it should be prayed. So when you came in a salata third quality woman Manasa Connor whom unifocal. Fecal mimma is a combination of men and men. From what Rosa canal who we have provided them, Rosa canal whom is from the root letters ra ze from the word risk. And what's the translation of the word risk? How would you translated provision?

00:29:15 --> 00:29:30

What is this what is provision? This is everything that is a source of man's spiritual or physical sustenance, everything that is a source of man's spiritual or physical Testaments.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:59

You understand? Like for example, can you think of an example of what comes in? Well, money, children, food, help. What else? knowledge because knowledge is spiritual. sustenance, security, safety, peace of mind. If a person is living in a place where there's famine, or where there's war. Is he missing something? Yes, he doesn't have that spiritual

00:30:00 --> 00:30:24

sustenance, right. So, this includes material things as well as non material blessings. All right, it includes material as well as non material blessings. So when my mom was up in our home, Allah says out of what We have provided them, so everything that was piled Allah has given to a person what does this person do? What does a Motoki do? Yun Falcone? They span up who is from the root letters known fab.

00:30:25 --> 00:31:05

And in fact is to spend to give, what does it mean to spend? So woman matters? Okay, now who mewn free Cohn? Who are the motorcade? They spend out of what Allah subhanaw taala has provided them? What does this show to us, first of all, that, who is our provider, Allah subhanaw, taala. Anything and everything we have, whether it's health, or it's time, or it is knowledge, or it is money, or it is a body that we use, friends, the opportunities that we have in our life, all of this is what provision and who has given it to us? Unless

00:31:06 --> 00:31:50

we have not acquired it ourselves. A person might say, I have this because I put an effort for it. Yes, Alhamdulillah you put an effort and Allah facilitated that for you. You put in the effort and the time and Allah subhanaw taala enabled you to have it so many people put an effort but do they actually get what they want? Not every time. So who is the provider? Allah subhanaw taala. So when we mount as a canal homey and feel cool, what is it that Allah subhanaw taala has provided us anything and everything that we had? What does the Motoki do with what Allah subhanaw taala has given him? Does he just keep it to himself? Is he selfish? No. And what the key is one who gives who

00:31:50 --> 00:32:27

shares he is not just concerned about himself, he is not selfish. Rather, he cares about other people, he doesn't hoard, but rather he gives he shares, woman models or canal commune feel coin that told me something? What is it that we are to spend? What is it that we should spend? Should we spend everything we have? No. What does mean by when we communicate code. This is understood in two ways. The word men has been understood in two ways over here, first of all men gives meaning of some of

00:32:29 --> 00:32:33

so whatever Allah subhanaw taala has provided them, some of it, they spend in the waivable.

00:32:35 --> 00:32:37

Some of it, they spent, not everything, but some of it.

00:32:39 --> 00:32:56

And how much is it depending on what they can afford, depending on what's easy for them, depending on what their budget allows, what their time allows what their situation in life allows, right? This is one meaning, another meaning of men is that it gives meaning of all of it.

00:32:57 --> 00:33:31

When we met in grammar, you call this min min of ban those of you who would like to know, so that it means when a man has a canal commune for cone that what we have provided them they spend what We have provided them to spend, like for example, Abu Bakar of the learn who, at the time of the expedition to the book, does anyone know how much he spent at that time? How much he brought everything he had, that was a time when or model the learn who brought half of his entire possessions and he thought today I'm going to beat aboubaker and he gets there and he finds a walker has brought everything he has

00:33:33 --> 00:33:51

to learn what he did at that time. Was that wrong? No. Why did he bring everything then why did he spend everything that because that is what the situation demanded? Like for example, let's say a person's child becomes extremely ill. At that time, what do you think they're going to spend anything and everything if necessary?

00:33:52 --> 00:34:22

The mother will perhaps sell her gold jewelry. The father will take out all the money from his savings account in crisis situations, what do you take out anything and everything people will sell their house even they will tell their car they will go down on their day to day expenses. Why? Because the situation demands them to spend a lot. Right. So when we model the economic record out of what We have provided them they spend so for example, the person might say

00:34:23 --> 00:34:48

that why are you studying you think this is mandatory? You think this is important? You could just go to a weekly does. Why do you have to go twice a week on the weekends in the morning? So is it necessary? Yes. The situation demands this from us. It's about time we study the Quran. All our lives. We have been saying yes I want to study the Quran. Yes, I want to study the Quran. But it's about time that we take this work seriously.

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

So it's possible that for one person, what's easier is what their situation allows is that they go to weekly halacha but a person wants to become serious like you you have to come on your

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

weekends, and there are other people who perhaps have to come during the week. So when minmetals Akane whom you and for whom because when we come here, the fees that we pay the money that we spend on the gas, the money that we spend in our lunches, the money that we spend in our books on our uniform, even that is what spending in the way of Allah,

00:35:19 --> 00:36:01

you understand, even for the spending is reward. A Motoki will give preference to spending in the way of Allah subhanaw taala so when we model is a canal for me and feel code, and remember there will be models of nobleman for Kuhn. This includes three things in particular, out of what Allah subhanaw taala has provided us. We should spend this includes three things First of all, that a person must give zakat. Why Juba, the cat why Juba? Meaning the mandatory is a cat that's also part of spending. So when we mount as a canal unit raccoon, they gives a cat Secondly, so the heart was the hub, the preferred charity, meaning where a person is encouraged to give charity?

00:36:02 --> 00:36:38

For example, where are we encouraged to give charity for example of the poor and the needy who else on orphans who else where else Masjid helping a masjid an institute for example, that is working to promote the knowledge of the deen that serving the community. This is all worth spending in the way of Allah. All right. And thirdly, this also includes the nether parts that are lasma meaning the mandatory expenditures for example, as a father, a man is obligated to spend on who

00:36:39 --> 00:36:42

on his family on his wife on his children.

00:36:43 --> 00:37:16

He should not think or what a waste of money I could have bought, you know this car by now if I had been saving all that money to bad have to buy diapers for my children. All this money goes and diapers and all this money goes in their clothes. Every other month we're going shopping for their clothes, this is not right, I could have bought this and this or this by now. He should not feel bad. Why? Because it's an obligation on him to spend and for the spending also he gets rewarded. Remember that hadith in which the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that a man if you put some morsel of food in the mouth of his wife, even that is written as charity for him. So when minmetals Akane

00:37:16 --> 00:37:19

home, Yun feel good. Now connect us with Taqwa.

00:37:20 --> 00:37:23

When will a person gives a cat when he

00:37:24 --> 00:37:56

is afraid of Allah subhanaw taala when he is careful when he wants to save himself from the punishment of Allah, because those who do not give us a cat who hoard their wealth, who do not give the right of Allah from it, who do not give the right of for from it, there is a severe punishment for them on the Day of Judgment. Instead of the Toba, we learn about that, that on the day when the gold and the silver that the hoard it, it will be melted and it will be branded on top of them. Just imagine molten gold, silver, and it's put on the forehead of a person the back of a person. Just imagine how bad it would burn. This is the punishment for who those who do not give us a cat. So a

00:37:56 --> 00:38:05

person who wants to save himself from this punishment. He has Taqwa What will he do? He will give us a cat. Because if you think about it, when it comes to paying taxes,

00:38:06 --> 00:38:51

can you avoid that in this country? You can't? How can you but paying zakat can you avoid that in this country? Easily? Which Imam of the masjid is gonna come after you? Brother You give the cat sister you give us a cat? Who's going to do that to you? No one. So what is it that's going to make a person gives a cat on time property? Fear of Allah. Similarly, what is it that will make a person spend in the way of Allah spend on the poor and the needy spend on the massages? Spend on those people who are striving to learn or for example, sponsoring books somewhere? When will a person do this? When he has fear of Allah? And when will he spend on his family on his children, wherever he's

00:38:51 --> 00:38:56

required to spend when he has a fear of Allah. So, when we models or canal unifocal.

00:38:57 --> 00:39:00

Now, if you look at the side from the beginning, what do you see?

00:39:01 --> 00:39:32

three characteristics of motorcade, first of all, that they believe in the unseen Secondly, they established the salah, and thirdly, they spend out of what Allah subhanaw taala has provided them, what does this ayah show to us the importance of First of all, believe in the unseen. Secondly, the importance of Salah and thirdly the importance of spending in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. Now, as far as the importance of performing Salah is concerned,

00:39:33 --> 00:39:59

the importance of Salah as far as that is concerned, there is a Hadith from which we learned that a man once came to the masjid and he prayed salah, and then he went to the Prophet salallahu Salam and he greeted him. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam responded to his greeting, and he said it was only for inoculum to suddenly go and repeat your Salah because you did not pray properly. So he went and he prayed again, and he came to the Prophet

00:40:00 --> 00:40:21

sort of artisan greeted him the prophets, Allah loves them said the same thing to him. So he went and prayed again and this happened three times. So finally the man came and he said, Teach me how to pray them. I don't know how to pray. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him that when you pray, make sure that you stand still in the sense that when you go into court, don't get up from Brooker until you have become

00:40:22 --> 00:40:50

stable there. Once you become stable there, once you pause there, then move then stand up and then don't just quickly go down into such the until you have come to a stationary point and then again, don't lift up your head from South Africa until you have become stable over there. So this shows to us that if a person does not perform the salah properly, which has done his Salah is not valid. Isn't it scary?

00:40:51 --> 00:41:08

If a person does not perform Salah properly it says though his Salah is not valid. So we have to be very careful that when we're praying Salah we are focused first of all our mind and heart should be present. We should have for sure we should be able to concentrate, have fear of Allah know what we're saying.

00:41:09 --> 00:41:46

And then performing the salah properly as well. The way the Prophet saw a lot of sudden prayed and especially this element of Tama Nina of being still of being calm during Salah this is very very important because unfortunately we go through Salah very quickly sometimes it's as though we're speeding through Salah running through salah, a person is barely touch the ground and to do that they're up. They're barely set up that they're down. They barely gone down and record that they're standing up so we have to become very careful in this. From this point onwards. Pay attention to your Salah, who will pay attention to your Salah, the one who has Taqwa the third quality is that

00:41:46 --> 00:42:25

they spend out of what they have given whatever Allah subhanaw taala has provided them they spend in total for Karna is 67 we learn when the Rena EDA unfuckable lamb you three fu wala mia q2, what kind of been a Delica Kurama that there are those who when they spend they do not do so excessively or sparingly. Me they don't go to extremes that all the became very emotional. Whatever money I have, let me just put it in the donation box and then they have nothing left or sparingly meaning being very stingy in the sense that yeah, I have this much money but I have to buy the jacket for myself. So I'm saving this money right now too but I cannot give these $2 over here.

00:42:26 --> 00:42:58

This is not the one with the layperson. But Turkey person is moderate is moderate in his spending. He sees where the need is and he spends over there. More qualities. While Medina you may know not be my own ZTE, Laker same words they believe in that which has been revealed to you on Zillow is new on today's from the root letters, noonday lamb, and Nadella is to come down. Right? And then zeal in Zeile. It's used for revelation because revelation also comes down from Allah subhanaw taala to the messenger.

00:42:59 --> 00:43:22

So they believe in that which was revealed to you what was revealed to the prophets of Allah. So by the way you over here who does it refer to? The prophets of Allah who said, so what was revealed in the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the Quran, so they believe in the Quran, but remember that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was given two things. First of all, the Quran,

00:43:24 --> 00:43:33

which is what he revelation that is Mutlu, that is recited. And secondly, he was also given why that is later bucklew revelation that is not recited.

00:43:34 --> 00:43:57

Meaning he was also given certain instructions that are not in the Quran, but he was actually given those instructions. Like for example, we learned that in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala tells us about performing Salah we just read it, but it's a method of Salah is it mentioned in the Quran? No, who taught us how to pray the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Where did he learn how to pray from Allah subhanaw taala dot him

00:43:58 --> 00:44:42

so we met Andre Laker includes everything that the messenger SallAllahu Sallam told us about because when a young took one in Hawaii, he would not speak out of his own desire. He would not speak out of his own waves. So when Medina you want to be my own Zilla, alayka, warmer on Xeomin Kominek. And they also believe in what was revealed before you at the ultimate even the scriptures that were revealed before the Quran, like for example, the Torah. There's a boo, the NGO, similar is the sort of of Ibrahim alayhis salam, we learn the Quran Sophie Rahima Moosa. So, the scriptures that Allah subhanaw taala revealed before the Quran, some Allah has informed us about their names, who they

00:44:42 --> 00:44:59

were given to. But it's quite possible that there are other scriptures that we do not even have any idea about. We don't know what their name we don't know which messenger was given it. But a McDuffie person, what does he do? He believes everything that Allah has revealed. Now tell me, what does it mean by believing in the Quran?

00:45:00 --> 00:45:40

believing in what it says and also following it, right? What does it mean by believing in the previous scriptures? What does that require you to do? What does that faith require you to do? That you also follow the previous scriptures? No. Believing in the previous scriptures means that we believe that Allah sent them down Allah revealed them for the guidance of mankind that Allah always sent guidance to people. So when Medina you know wanna be my own Zita ileka When my own Z lemon cabinet and the final characteristic that is mentioned over here is what will karate whom you will clone and they believe in the hereafter with conviction and alpha is from the routers Hamzah Honda

00:45:40 --> 00:45:49

and Acura is that which will come at the end. And technically, Acura is what here after? What does it mean by the hereafter. It includes

00:45:50 --> 00:46:17

everything that Allah subhanaw taala has informed us about that will happen from the moment of death until eternity in Jannah, or hellfire. This is what our hero includes. So for example, it includes the test in the grave, we know that each and every single one of us will we will die when we are in our graves, then what's going to happen, what's going to happen, the angels are going to appear and they're going to ask us Monroe book

00:46:18 --> 00:47:00

Manabi yoke Medina these questions they're going to ask us. So believing in the hereafter includes believing in the test that will happen in the grave believing in the hereafter includes believing in the blowing of the trumpet, the Day of Judgment, the hisab, the questioning, the going over the bridge, the slit up the scales on the Day of Judgment. It means that a person believes that there is Jana, that there is hellfire, there is eternity in Jannah. There is eternity in hellfire. So a bill accurate to whom you can notice the word you can own. It's not just you know, this is different. You can own this from here cough noon, from the word here pain and up is the highest level of it, the

00:47:00 --> 00:47:05

highest level of it fit at the level of conviction, free of any doubt.

00:47:06 --> 00:47:54

There is not even a little amount of doubt, absolute conviction. So notice for the hereafter Allah subhanaw taala says they have certainty. It hasn't been said wobble accurate, to whom you may know and what has been said what will accurate to whom you can Why is your cane mentioned for the hereafter? Because only when a person has the deed in the hereafter conviction, he sees the events of the hereafter as real, he believes that it will happen only then can it change him. Only then can a person change his ways. Only then can a person be a Motoki because if a person has weak faith in the hereafter in the Day of Judgment, then what will happen? He won't be as careful if he thinks

00:47:54 --> 00:48:28

Yeah, we'll see when the day of judgment comes. Let me just enjoy myself for now. Yeah, I'll see when the day of judgment comes. I know that the first question is going to be about salah but yeah, you know something might happen and you never know I might be saved. Is it going to be careful about how he's performing a Salah know what's going to fix a person Salah you're clean in the Hereafter, certainty in the Hereafter, that I will be questioned about my prayer, I will be questioned about my money. I have a question about my time, what did I do with it? How did I live my life. So when a person has the opinion, this is what drives him to change. This is what motivates him to do

00:48:28 --> 00:48:37

something, this is what keeps him afraid. This is what keeps him alert. This is what keeps him conscious, what will occur to whom you know,

00:48:38 --> 00:49:25

Allah subhanaw taala says Bula Iike it is those people who are ICA is deplore enough there Lika earlier in the Surah What Did We Learn then he called Kitab Delica that Allah ICA those and just as Delica is used to point out to that which is far or high similarly hola Erica, those is used for those people who are far or or high elevated in their status in their position. So people who have these qualities who are MacDuffie Allah says those people, those who are they are, they are upon who the middle of the hem guidance from their Lord. These are the people who are on guidance into the fattier. What do I do we make a dinner slit off and was talking? Allah says the person who has these

00:49:25 --> 00:49:28

qualities he is upon guidance.

00:49:29 --> 00:49:54

Definitely he is rightly guided. Definitely he's received of guidance from the Quran. Allah who the middle of behave what Allah ICA and those whom they are mostly hold those who are successful, mostly known as Florida, mostly. And it's from the root address phylum Ha, fella is success from the same root is a word that is Phala and phala is used for a farmer, Farmer.

00:49:55 --> 00:49:59

Think about a farmer what does he do? Cultivate how

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

First of all, he has to prepare the ground, then he has to put the seed in. Good. He did a one month vacation? No, what does he have to do? Look after the plant, look after his crop, and he has to make sure that they're growing properly, he has to make sure that there is nothing that's harming them. And he has to go outside in extreme heat. So this entire process of farming requires a lot from a person, a lot of effort. And then eventually, what does he find the fruit of his effort? Some of you who are who are successful, how are they successful? Just by luck, just by chance, who am awfully hone those who have put in the effort who have actually done something and when they've done

00:50:46 --> 00:50:48

something, then they reap the fruit. So

00:50:49 --> 00:51:05

what does it show to us? That success cannot be attained just by chance, success is attained how? by hard work? And what is the work that we need to do in order to be successful in this world and the hereafter? The things that are mentioned in these?

00:51:06 --> 00:51:50

What are they the first of all Taqwa. Secondly, imagine Hey, and the list you are familiar with Salah spending in the way of Allah, correct belief, belief in the hereafter. All of this is what leads to success. And you see over here, Allah, Allah who the mirror beam Allah is to be on something upon something. So there upon guidance, and when they're upon guidance, where will they get to? Wherever guidance leads them to? It's like a person who is on a ship, where will he end up? Wherever that ship takes him? So when a person is on Huda, where will he end up wherever that Huda takes him? And what is that success in this dunya and the hereafter? And what is real success? Real

00:51:50 --> 00:52:19

success is that a person is saved from the punishment and He is admitted into Paradise. Allah subhanaw taala says, Whoever is saved from the punishment of hellfire, and is admitted into paradise, that is a person who has truly been successful. Successful is not a person who has become a multimillionaire in this dunya who has a very happy family in this dunya who has a lot of free time, a lot of time to watch movies and enjoy eating popcorn. No, this is not a successful person. successful person is who

00:52:21 --> 00:52:28

the one who has everything in this dunya KNOW the One who has everything in the hereafter and that's not possible until a person gets to

00:52:30 --> 00:52:36

be Allah subhanho data make all of us of those who are who are willfully home and we listen to the recitation of these

00:52:38 --> 00:52:39

myths mean

00:52:52 --> 00:52:53

he can keep

00:52:54 --> 00:52:57


00:53:01 --> 00:53:02


00:53:03 --> 00:53:05

below eBay up Moon

00:53:10 --> 00:53:11


00:53:13 --> 00:53:14

will Lavina you

00:53:22 --> 00:53:22


00:53:37 --> 00:53:37


00:53:43 --> 00:53:59

it's amazing how in total fat how Allah subhanaw taala teaches us a beautiful door. Robin was the theme so Robin Medina and now Interlaken. And in this surah Allah subhanaw taala tells us that who gets with a motorcade and in order to be that you have to follow these steps.

00:54:00 --> 00:54:39

So it's beautiful how Allah subhanaw taala gives guidance that he doesn't just tell us what success is. But he tells us how to get there as well. Every little thing from faith, to rituals to interaction with other people because if you think about a prayer, what does that show connection with Allah subhanaw taala spending what does that show your connection with the rest of the people? So Allah subhanaw taala guides us through every single step and remember, I told you the meaning of hedaya is to show the way point out the way and then make a person go on the way and make them reach the destination. This is how Allah subhanaw taala gives guidance, your last Panthera give all of us

00:54:39 --> 00:54:49
