Robina Oh our Lord in Naka indeed you mental Killian Nara, whoever you admit into the fire fucka zeta then in fact you have humiliated him. Woman is Wally minimun on slob and there is no helper for who for those people who do who says this will Al Bab, those who reflect those who remember Allah, those who are intelligent, they pray to Allah. They take refuge with him from the fire. And they say that Oh Allah, we don't want to go in the fire because whoever you put into the fire, that in fact you have humiliated him zeta. Zeta is from what his human humiliation, meaning whoever is admitted into the fire, then he is humiliated, he has lost all honor, all respect he is worth nothing.

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

Woman is lowly, minimal unsolved, and those who enter the hellfire, the wrongdoers, they will have no helpers on that day.

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

Just imagine on the Day of Judgment, if someone is thrown into the fire, then that is the worst humiliation for them. It's the worst humiliation for them. Imagine that you're sitting in a gathering.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:27

Your friends are there, your relatives are there, even some strangers people whom you've met for the first time, all sorts of people are there. And all of a sudden somebody comes up to you randomly and slap you across your face.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:35

Yes, you are physically hurt, okay. But more than that you feel humiliated.

00:01:36 --> 00:02:04

isn't at all, you feel as though you have been insulted. And yes, you have been humiliated that somebody hurt you in public. If someone yells at you, your sibling, your spouse, your child, your parent, if they yell at you in public, in front of your friend, in front of your teacher, then how do we feel humiliated? And we say to them, please don't talk to me like that in front of others. Again.

00:02:05 --> 00:02:53

Don't talk to me like that, again, don't insult me like that, again, we feel humiliated. Imagine on the Day of Judgment, if someone is brought in front of everybody and thrown into the fire isn't that humiliation isn't a disgrace. It's the worst disgrace. And one is that a person is being hurt physically at a very small level. And the other is that he's being thrown into something being treated like garbage, being treated like firewood, being treated like trash, something that is thrown into the fire, that I have no value knows respect, nothing today, for zeta, women, aluminium and Onsala. And such people will have no helpers on that day. So those who have intellect, they

00:02:53 --> 00:03:43

worry about honor where in the hereafter. They worry about humiliation in the hereafter. So they're not concerned about impressing people, or just having a good image before them. No, they're worried about their image on the day of judgment. And for that what is needed, sincerity is needed action is needed effort is needed. Forgiveness as needed. So this try for all of this so that they can be saved from humiliation in the hereafter. Think about it, if you are given your exam back, and you have a big D on it a big red D on it and it says fail. If you're given that test paper back in front of your class, what will you do? Show it to everybody leave it up on your desk so that people can

00:03:43 --> 00:04:04

see it? No, you would just fold it quickly slip it into your bag and walk out of the classes that nobody asks you, nobody sees you. And the moment somebody asks you later on, you change the topic, you don't want to talk about it. And if there is a teacher who announces the marks from the highest to the lowest of the lowest of the highest in front of the whole class that so and so God, these may numbers and so on so scored this much.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:11

It could be a source of pride for some and a source of great humiliation for others. And this is just the dunya

00:04:12 --> 00:04:45

this is just the duniya. And this is temporary. You could be humiliated one day. And the next moment or the next day, you could be honored someone insults you in public comes and slaps you across your face in front of everybody. And yes, you're humiliated. But then 10 People get up and become against the person who hurt you. So all of a sudden your disgrace turned into Honor, this is duniya because the disgrace of the dunya is temporary. A person could be humiliated in this world. But as death approaches him, he could be at a much higher level, much higher level he could be in early Yean. So

00:04:46 --> 00:04:54

the reality is that the honor of the Hereafter the disgrace of the Hereafter this should be our main concern.

00:04:55 --> 00:04:59

And ogbonna or our Lord in the nurse America indeed We have heard

00:05:00 --> 00:05:48

Word monad and a color monad is who someone who does need a new Dahlia someone who calls out. So we have heard a color. That was unity that was calling to what lil Iman to Iman. We heard someone calling us to Iman. And ameobi become telling us that we should believe in our Lord and ameobi not become that believe in your lord or people. So we heard someone calling that all people believe in your Lord. So the owner will Al Bab when they heard someone calling them believe in Allah, the One who created you the one who owns you, the one who sustains you. That's perfectly logical, completely logical. So what is the response of those who have intellect, their responses?

00:05:49 --> 00:05:53

So we believed, because it makes complete sense to believe in your Lord,

00:05:54 --> 00:06:08

the one who has made you it makes sense to believe in Him, the one who provides you make sense to believe in Him. So we heard someone calling us believe someone told us someone asked us to believe so Allah we responded, we believed right away.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:16

Now munadi over here, the caller, who is that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Some people heard his call directly.

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

Abdullah bin Salam. He says that when the Prophet salallahu Salam arrived in Medina,

00:06:23 --> 00:06:24

there were some words that he said,

00:06:25 --> 00:07:02

and what were those words? That Oh, people spread the greeting? Okay. Okay, food to the people and pray in the night and you will enter Jana in peace. Okay, so he heard the call of the Prophet salallahu Salam himself. There were many people who heard the call of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam inviting them to believe asking them to believe and what was the reaction of oral Al Bab? They said, We believe they believe because it was completely logical. So those who have the right kind of intellect, the right kind of mind, they believe.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:16

They believe they accept their surrender. Because that internet leads them to understanding the greatness of Allah when they understand the greatness of Allah, then there's nothing to do but to submit.

00:07:17 --> 00:08:07

So for our Munna, and other people, they didn't hear the call directly from Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but they heard the call from his ears and who are the heirs of the Prophet? Those who those who learned the deen the Aloma for am unknown. So we believed Robina or our Lord fulfill another newborn and since we have believed so please forgive us our sins, what can fit or unnecessary Tina and XP it from us? Our evals do things have been mentioned over here that Forgive us our loop and catheter? Anessa? Yeah, Tina, the know. And so you add two words have been used for sin. And ma Farah and duck feet, two words have been used for forgiveness. The norm is a plural off them. What

00:08:07 --> 00:08:23

does that mean? Sin? So you add this plural of say here? What does he mean sin? What's the difference? It is that that when both of these words come together, then Zulu. Zulu refers to those sins which are major

00:08:24 --> 00:08:30

which are major, major sins. Like for example shit, okay.

00:08:32 --> 00:09:13

Why? Because major sins are only forgiven when a person asks Allah for forgiveness. When a person repents and asks Allah for forgiveness, so they say follow fear Lenna than Obama they're asking for mofetil for the new because their major sins and what is my fiddle by the way, Mafia is set through them what the job was on who will the concealing of sin and being pardoned for it that a sin is hidden? Allah covers it. Allah doesn't expose it. Allah doesn't let a person suffer its consequences and then he forgives the person for it completely doesn't hold him accountable doesn't punish him neither in this world nor in the hereafter, so fulfill another Obinna. So he ad on the other hand

00:09:13 --> 00:09:35

refers to minor sins. And this is the reason why Get Fit has been said cuffin is from gaffa What does cover literally mean to cover? Okay, and Cafaro Yuka furutech feet is basically to wipe off because when something is covered, it is hidden. When something is wiped off, it is erased. It's hidden, meaning it's unknown.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:52

You never know that something was written there. Something was marked over there because it has been removed. So caffeine or unnecessary attina meaning erase our sins by what? By virtue of our good deeds.

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

And this is the reason why so he asked refers to minor sins because minor sins are forgiven by what you

00:10:00 --> 00:10:46

By the performance of good deeds because good deeds they erase bad deeds, but for major sins, you need to ask Allah for forgiveness. So they asked for both all kinds of sins all kinds of forgiveness fulfill another Obinna, what Catherine Erna say, Tina, what our fun. And recall a steak is fully meaning give us death, metal abroad with the righteous, it doesn't mean that make us die in the company of the righteous. So all the righteous are being given death at the same time. So make us of that group and all those people die at the same time collectively, no, this is not the meaning. Merle Oberon with the abre with over here doesn't refer to the man meaning time. But it refers to

00:10:46 --> 00:10:51

Musa meaning makers of those people, that when we die, we join them.

00:10:53 --> 00:11:36

When we die, we become a part of their group, that after we die, gather our souls with theirs. Because when a righteous person dies, then where does the soul go? In their illusion? And then when another righteous person die? Where does his soul go? In there Elohim even if there's a gap of 1000 years between the death of those two individuals, but eventually they will be gathered together, okay, their souls will be together. And eventually in Jannah the souls of the righteous will be together even if they lived 1000s of years apart in the world. This is the reason why use of La Santa he made the daughter were funny Muslim, and will Hackney beside him join me with the

00:11:36 --> 00:12:24

righteous. So what the what fun Amal abroad, keep us in a good state in this world and when we die, make us off the righteous ones and who are abroad abroad is the plural of birth. And who is above someone who does a lot of big cathedral hierarchy, someone who does a lot of righteous deeds, so very, very righteous. So make us of the company of who the righteous ones. So what do we learn in these verses? First of all, we see that we should acknowledge and mentioned the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. What did the old Al Bab say that Oh Allah, we heard a caller calling us to Iman. So we believed Eman is a blessing. And we should thank Allah for the blessing of Eman by talking about

00:12:24 --> 00:12:43

it. We should thank Allah for the blessing of guidance by talking about it. By mentioning it, we're unmap veneer Mattila becau. For her this mention it. And if a person does so for person mentioned the blessing of the man the blessing of guidance, not for the purpose of showing off, that's perfectly fine.

00:12:45 --> 00:13:25

Okay, then we also learned over here that the call of the messenger was two words Iman, the messenger called people to our Eman imagine who in Allah. So when we call people we should also call them to Allah believing in Allah connecting with Allah and me no bill have become. And obviously the details of Eman have not been mentioned over here. So it doesn't mean that the messenger just oh people believe in Allah and that's sufficient. You don't have to believe in the angels. You don't have to believe in the Day of Judgment. No, this is not what the implication is. Obviously it's understood that if a person believes in Allah, then he will believe in everything that Allah has

00:13:25 --> 00:14:20

told him off, right? Then we also learn from this idea about the permissibility of the vessel, when making dua, that when a person is making dua, than he can ask allah, that by virtue of his good deeds, Allah accepts his girl. Because over here, what do they say that we believed fall Filipina that Oh ALLAH since we have believed so please forgive us. So likewise, a person is making dua person says, Oh Allah, I'm giving this much money in charity. So please help me. Oh, Allah, I'm forgiving this person. So please forgive me. Oh, Allah, I'm helping this person. So please, help me Is it okay to make such dua, it's perfectly fine. Likewise, if a person says Oh Allah, you are the

00:14:20 --> 00:14:59

merciful, so please have mercy on me. Oh Allah, I have sinned, so please, forgive me. So a person can mention. Allah has attributes. A person can mention the actions of Allah, a person can mention his own sins, his own good deeds in order to invite Allah's mercy so that the DUA is accepted or rejected, accepted. Okay, what the what final mile abroad have been, Oh our Lord what attina And give us Malwa Tana Allah wa Swiatek that what you have promised us through your

00:15:00 --> 00:15:07

messengers, meaning Oh our Lord, whatever that you have promised us, through your messengers, than Please grant that to us.

00:15:09 --> 00:15:47

What is it that Allah has promised? The righteous the believing ones? Through the messengers, meaning all messengers, what message do they bring that if a person believes if a person is righteous, what does Allah promise him? Jana? What else does Allah promise him forgiveness? What else does Allah promise him good in this life? Correct. Like in the Quran, we learned that word Allahu Allah Dena Emma, lumen Kumar middle slowly hearty, Leia, Stockley. funda, whom fill out that Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous among you that he will give them authority upon the earth that's good in this life. Likewise, Allah has promised jaaneman Surah Toba 72 What

00:15:47 --> 00:16:18

are the Allahu Medina? Well, Minette Jannette. Allah has promised the believing men and women, Janet, Allah has promised that so Oh Allah, whatever that you have promised us. Please give that to us. Well, to Xena yarmulke, Yama, look at their concern, or our Lord Don't humiliate us on the Day of Judgment, that we think you are going to reward us. But there is only punishment awaiting us that we think our good deeds are going to be accepted. But because of the lack of sincerity, they are rejected.

00:16:20 --> 00:16:53

You all know about the Hadith in which we learn that a man will be brought on the Day of Judgment, who used to recite the Quran and Allah will remind him of the favours that he bestowed on him. And Allah will ask him, What did you do, and the person will say, I recited your book for you, and Allah will say you are lying. You didn't do it for me. You did it so that you'd be appreciated. And the people would say, Oh, what are recited? So you were called you were appreciated by people. And now you have nothing and that person will be thrown into the fire of *. This is humiliation.

00:16:54 --> 00:16:59

So well that dog scenario will Kiama don't humiliate us on the Day of Judgment.

00:17:00 --> 00:17:37

And this does not mean that Allah is being unfair with the people know if Allah is rejecting someone's good deeds, then it's for a reason. There were not done for him. So in other words, by the store, we are asking Allah for what? For sincerity, that oh Allah keep a sincere wala Josina yomo Qiyamah in Nicola totally full Mira. Indeed, you do not go against the promise. Mirada while lowering dull, you don't go against the appointment, meaning any promise that you've made, you don't go against it, meaning you don't fail to keep it who fails to keep a promise. Who,

00:17:38 --> 00:17:59

what is it that makes a person not fulfill his promise? There are mainly two reasons. First of all, insincerity treachery, lying deceit, that a person was never sincere. And even though he decided that okay, he was going to fulfill it, but then he didn't want to so he deceived the other. Okay, so treachery, deceit, what's another reason?

00:18:01 --> 00:18:33

inability, right, one is deceit and the other is inability. And Allah is above these two weaknesses. Allah has not insincere. Now with a biller, he is not treacherous. No. And secondly, he is not unable. So when Allah makes a promise, then he fulfills it. If Allah makes a promise, then he fulfills it. Now the question is, why do they say in the collaterally, full mirror, while the you don't go against the promise? Why do they say this?

00:18:35 --> 00:18:38

What's the point? It's as though they can't wait for their award.

00:18:40 --> 00:19:15

It says they can't wait for it. You know, they're craving it. They desire it so much that they want to get it quickly. So the Scylla you don't go against your promise and it's like you're they're assuring themselves that if your mother your teacher says that if you do this, this is a reward you'll get and you do it. Then you go to your teacher you go to your mother and say, remember you said that if I do this you'll get me a cell phone. I did it. Remember you said that if I did this you could take me I'm done. Let's go you know it shows how keen you are to get it so in Nicola totally full mirror and and they mentioned this as a reason for their asking him that Oh Allah, we

00:19:15 --> 00:19:41

ask you because you have promised us right? And you don't go against your promise, but this is why we ask you. So the one of understanding is the one who reflects on the universe. He has Iman and his entire thinking changes. He is concerned about the hereafter. He's not concerned about this dunya he desires to go to Jannah and he wants protection from the fire. Let's listen to the recitation of these verses from

00:19:47 --> 00:19:48


00:19:49 --> 00:19:53

Zion Utah or a man in Raleigh mean I mean

00:19:54 --> 00:19:59

all Amana

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


00:20:04 --> 00:20:04


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


00:20:24 --> 00:20:28

all Amana, Tina

00:20:38 --> 00:20:40

to believe me

00:20:43 --> 00:21:40

faster Jabba humara boom so their Lord responded to them, those who have intellect who believe who submit, who beg Allah then Allah also responds to them. What's the response that he gives that Anil that indeed I love will be you I do not waste from blood yeah rain, we are to waste something, do not give any value to it. I do not waste our Mala, the work of dominant of a doer of a worker men come from you mean Zakon whether male ownself or female, if there's any individual regardless of their gender, male or female, if they do some or money. And this Armelle could be a lot or a little, it doesn't matter how much it is. If anyone does something, what does Allah say? That he does not

00:21:40 --> 00:22:27

waste their effort, he does not waste their work. So what does that mean? That He rewards them for it in the most perfect way, in the best way he appreciates. He doesn't just reward a person for the final outcome of his action, but he also rewards the person for the effort that he has put in any armor a lot or a little He rewards and this is regardless of the gender of the person because bow Bukom member some of you are from others, you are of one another all of you are children of Adam. So what if a person is a man so what if a person is a woman at the end of the day you are a human being. So if a man prays, look, and a woman prays love, both of them pray, both of them do the same

00:22:27 --> 00:22:57

action, both of them get the same reward. Just because the person is a woman, she will not get more reward or just because a person has a man does not mean they will get more reward. Gender does not matter. When it comes to good deeds. When it comes to dua, Allah hears men, he hears women, he accepts the good deeds of men and he also accepts the good deeds of women. So at the end of the day, what should our focus be on,

00:22:58 --> 00:23:40

on our performance, on our actions on doing something, because unfortunately, we're lost in this competition, you know, that we are as though competing against men proving ourselves to be better or greater, or more worthy. But this is not the focus the focus should be actions that Allah will accept, because Allah except for men and women, fund Lavina hijo. So those people who do hijra, had Euro, hatred, and number there are three kinds of Hijra. One is to leave sin, because he was basically to leave something and go elsewhere to leave a place and go elsewhere. So one kind of ritual is to leave sin

00:23:41 --> 00:23:53

and do good. Instead, a person has a bad habit, he does Hijra from it, meaning he leaves that bad habit behind. He leaves it, he stops doing it, it's become history. Now. He moves on from it.

00:23:54 --> 00:24:32

Another kind of Hijra is that when a person leaves the place of comfort and goes to the place of Islam, a place of comfort, where he's not allowed to practice the spirit, there's no freedom, he can't pray, he can't express, you know, his religion, nothing like that. He has a lot of restrictions. So if he cannot practice his religion, then what should he do? He should go to a place where he can practice like the Muslims migrated from Mecca to Medina. The third kind of Hijra is to leave the place of fitna the place of sin, the place of temptation, and to go to a place where a person can remain steadfast. So for example, a person could be in a Muslim country in a perfectly

00:24:32 --> 00:24:59

Muslim environment. But he feels that if I'm amongst these people, that I become sinful like them, too, because they apparently wear hijab, but they backbite a lot. So I end up doing the same thing. They have Muslim names, but they do all sorts of wrong things. So I forget. I also become like them and if a person feels that they're unable to survive over there, their Eman is in danger. Their deed is in danger than they do Hijra. They leave that place and go to a place where they're even

00:25:00 --> 00:25:38

NSF and many times you will see that a Muslim country, you find it difficult to practice for a non Muslim country, you find it easier to practice. Are many of you in agreement with me over this? Yes. So remember, Hijra is not just going from a non Muslim country to a Muslim country, because some people think, oh, you should not be living in Canada, It's haram, you should not be living in the States haram, we should go to 30 You should go to Egypt, you should go to Pakistan, you should go. Allah Ireland, where, but the fact is, that a person should live where practicing his faith as possible.

00:25:40 --> 00:26:15

And 100 Allah, that we have the freedom of religion over here, that you can practice your faith. But if a person feels that they're not able to, that's a different story, but where you can, you're not obligated to move from there, and put yourself in hardship and put your family in hardship. This is not something that's obligated on you. So anyway, for Latina, hajimeru, if someone is in a state where they're not able to practice their faith, and they leave that place and go elsewhere, this is a big decision. Have you ever moved houses? How difficult is it? Very difficult.

00:26:16 --> 00:26:52

I'm sure many of you have moved from one country to another even that is so difficult. So imagine leaving a place going somewhere else not because you're getting a better job? Not because the weather is nicer, not because you have friends and relatives over there, not because you grew up in that place. No, because you cannot practice your faith anymore. There is a danger to your Eman. So you decide to leave everything and go somewhere else. This is a very difficult decision. A very, very difficult decision, we see that if a person has moved from one house to another, they miss their neighborhood,

00:26:53 --> 00:27:33

isn't it. So if you have moved from one city to another, or from one side of the city to the other side of the city, you miss your old neighborhood you miss your school, isn't it? You miss your school, you miss your friends, you're just so used to it. You feel that you belong there. And then you place you feel isolated, you feel awkward. You don't know anybody if you'd like a stranger, you're alone, you have no friends. It's a very difficult thing to move from one place to another. But if it's her worldly reasons, it's easier to accept, right? Because people say, oh, you know, we're in a bigger house now. So it's okay. Or, you know, we're in a far better location now. Right?

00:27:33 --> 00:27:38

Your dad is making more money your brother is getting to study. So you're like, Okay, nevermind.

00:27:39 --> 00:28:15

But if you're doing your job, just for the cause of the deen. And in fact, in that process, you suffer financially. You suffer at various levels. It's much more hard. But Allah appreciates this Felina hurdle. We're all Collegium in the area him and they're driven out of their homes. Oh, what did you mean the Yeti him the applause of Dow. What does this mean? That when a person is not allowed to stay somewhere, where life has become so difficult that he is driven out this could be in two ways. One is it literally is told you can't stay here anymore. You have to leave. You have to leave.

00:28:17 --> 00:28:26

A person is told if you stay here, you will be finished. Your property will be confiscated. You will be put behind bars, you have to leave Oh, could you they're driven.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:34

And the other way of what could you do is what? That life is made so difficult for a person that they're forced to leave, like the Muslims in Makkah.

00:28:35 --> 00:29:02

Many Muslims, they were not told by people that leave from here. But life was made so difficult for them. They had no choice but to leave. We're already doom in the area. And both of these are very difficult Hedra and being driven out of your house extremely difficult. What Goofy's a Bailey and they were hurt in my way. They suffered, they got hurt in whose way in the way of Allah.

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

People hurt them, through their words, through their remarks through their comments through false propaganda, even physical hurt. Why? Because they were in the way of Allah like the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he suffered hurt, did he? Yes. For example, when he was praying in the Haram and one of the machine men he came and he put the placenta of a camel on top of him while he was in sujood.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:34

Imagine something so foul smelling so heavy.

00:29:36 --> 00:29:42

So filthy, was placed on top of him while he was praying and he couldn't get up because of how heavy it was.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:59

Although he severely he was heard in the way of Allah. So those people who were hurt and Allah's we were authored over Cuttino and they fight and they're fought, meaning they kill and they're killed, like it or heard so many companions. They were killed.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:48

Well Cortana will continue. Allah says Luca, fill on learn him say to him, their efforts are not going to go waste. I will definitely definitely remove from them their sins. I will wipe out their sins because of their good deeds because of their suffering because of their Hijra. What will Allah do? He will wipe away their sins. And instead while Odle Helena home and surely I will definitely admit them into where Jeanette in gardens that dream and tactical unharmed underneath which rivers flow. And all of this is what the webadmin are in the law, as a reward from Allah. This is reward from Allah will love we're in the wall and Allah He has her snowthrower the most excellent reward,

00:30:48 --> 00:30:58

meaning Allah only has the best reward, you can only expect the best reward the most perfect, the most beautiful recompense from him.

00:30:59 --> 00:31:27

If somebody rewards you for some work that you do, you are curious, you're in that suspense that I wonder what it is, I wonder if it's going to be something good, or something. Just like that. You're gonna have some people that just keep you in suspense. They're like, You know what, I have something. I have something for you. But I'm not going to tell you. I'll show you when I come back. And it could be anything from something that's made of gold to a small chocolate bar.

00:31:28 --> 00:32:01

Right? You can expect this from people. Sometimes you're expecting something so big from someone, you feel that I've graduated from university, I've graduated from high school, when my siblings better give me something really valuable. But what do they bring you a cup? Like, really? That's it? Or your parents, you're expecting some reward from them. Every day, you're like, going with a big smile and nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, no reward. Nothing. Like my parents don't appreciate me. My siblings don't care about me, I did this, I did this. I did this. My husband doesn't love me.

00:32:03 --> 00:32:29

Because people, they sometimes give good reward. And sometimes they don't give any reward. And sometimes the reward that they give becomes a burden on you. Because you have to take care of another cup. No. All right. But the reward that Allah gives, what is that person? It is the most excellent. Because what is it it is Janna? And in Jana? You know what if you're given something, you don't have to do anything to take care of it?

00:32:31 --> 00:32:52

If somebody gives you if you have gold jewelry, you're constantly worried about it. Is it in the locker? Is it safe? Is it at home? Is it in a locked somewhere is it kept safe, you're constantly worried, then you have to clean it and you have to maintain it. And you have to make sure it's not losing its value. And you know so many things you're concerned about it becomes a burden on you.

00:32:53 --> 00:33:01

But in Jannah people will be adorned by others, they will not have to put the jewelry on themselves. Imagine

00:33:02 --> 00:33:08

in Ghana, you won't have to do anything while lowering the who has snowthrower the most excellent reward

00:33:10 --> 00:33:52

if you get a big house, on the one hand, amazing that my husband and my family are so good to give me such a huge house. But on the other hand, you also have to take care of it. You're also burdened with the responsibility of maintaining the house. Correct. So the dunya is such it cannot be Highsmith up. Here's the syllabus were only with Allah only in Jana. So what should we aim for? In for that reward? Reach out for that reward, but it is for who? Those who do nothing. Those are compromising their faith? No five things are mentioned over here five characteristics. What are they? First of all, for Lavina hurdle

00:33:53 --> 00:34:35

Alhamdulillah. You're living in a place where you have the freedom to practice your religion. But you could be in a situation where doing good is difficult. You could be surrounded by some individuals where their family or their friends. Were practicing something good is difficult. You could be suffering this test from yourself that you have a bad habit. So do Hijra from it. Leave it you have to draw closer to Allah. You know what Hendra is basically? That you're leaving? What is holding you back from Allah. Whether it's a place or a person or a habit, you're leaving it behind, and you're drawn closer to Allah subhanaw taala

00:34:36 --> 00:34:40

so this hatred is necessary for this hearse Mithila

00:34:41 --> 00:34:43

we're all 100 Human dare him.

00:34:44 --> 00:34:52

Alhamdulillah we don't have to suffer that. We're all though visa vie the really suffering in the path of Allah.

00:34:54 --> 00:34:55

Is that something that happens?

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

Suffering in the way of Allah? Is that something that happens?

00:35:00 --> 00:35:02

Did anyone have you missed their breakfast this morning?

00:35:04 --> 00:35:06

Yeah, I think I heard a yes, here and there.

00:35:08 --> 00:35:09

You did.

00:35:10 --> 00:35:17

Because you have to get up and take care of the whole family. And by the time you're able to sit down and take your own breakfast, you have to get ready to leave.

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

And then what do you say talking later, I'll just grab this cup of tea, I'll just grab this cookie, I'll just grab this half a toast that my son didn't eat. And I'll just survive on that until after class, although visibly This is suffering in the way of Allah.

00:35:31 --> 00:35:32


00:35:33 --> 00:35:39

Did you have to sacrifice some of your sleep last night? Maybe some of you did. Or at least this morning? Come on. You did.

00:35:40 --> 00:35:56

Didn't you you wanted to sleep in but you can't. Gone are those days when you could stay up late Friday night when you could stay up late Saturday night, watch a movie, hang out with your friends, because you can sleep in the next day Gone are those days you can't do that anymore, at least for the next couple of years.

00:35:57 --> 00:35:58

Although feasibility right.

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

And think about what we suffer, so small, sacrificing some sleep. Think about the companions. Remember the Battle of what we have learned in so much detail in the Surah.

00:36:11 --> 00:36:14

Fingers got cut off, hand was paralyzed.

00:36:16 --> 00:36:27

Tooth broke off, not one, but both physically injured, physically wounded, emotionally hurt, shaken up completely bleeding.

00:36:28 --> 00:36:51

That's not something small. being heard in the way of Allah is not something small suffering in Allah's way, is not something small. And Allah subhanaw taala is most appreciative, which is why when a person suffers even the prick of a thorn in the way of Allah, that Allah rewards him. But what's the condition that you have to be patient,

00:36:53 --> 00:37:20

Wakata, Luba Cthulhu, they went to such an extent that even if it came to putting your own life at risk for the sake of the religion, they went for it look at the Companions, look at their example. So for such people, their sins are forgiven, and Allah will reward them with Jana. And that is the most excellent reward. So what do we see in this ayah that Allah responds to the dua of who will allow

00:37:21 --> 00:37:28

the oral Al Bab, their their hours are accepted? And one of the causes of acceptance is what?

00:37:29 --> 00:37:39

The Quran Fedora, constantly asking, not giving up. How many times in these verses do we see that they're seeking protection from humiliation

00:37:40 --> 00:38:07

in the hereafter at least twice? Being saved from the punishment so many times, hoping for reward asking for reward so many times, the crawler Fedora repeatedly asking Allah begging him this is something that leads to acceptance of prayers. If you want something from your mother, how many times do you ask her once? No. If you want something from your husband, How many times will you ask him once? Never.

00:38:08 --> 00:38:18

You will ask him to the point that he will be tired of you asking him you asked your mother until she will say Quiet please go away. I heard you enough.

00:38:19 --> 00:39:02

We asked again and again from people who do not give. But when it comes to asking Allah. We don't repeat, we don't ask again. Don't be shy of asking Allah. If you're shy of asking Allah, Allah will be shy of giving to you. So ask him again and again. Look at how they're begging, begging. And you know, assuring themselves in not a lot of people Mirabella you don't break your promise you fulfill your promise. So Allah responds to the Dora, of who will Alba and he gives them reward, not just ordinary reward, but the most complete reward how that he appreciates every effort. And he doesn't just appreciate every effort and reward for the final outcome. But he multiplies the reward as well.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:06

This is her Smith Co Op. When the reward is multiplied.

00:39:07 --> 00:39:14

Then we also learn in this ayah about the fact that suffering in the way of Allah increase his reward.

00:39:15 --> 00:39:23

If you are in the way of Allah and you're suffering, then be glad because inshallah this will be a means of increase in reward.

00:39:25 --> 00:39:25


00:39:27 --> 00:39:29

one of our online sisters

00:39:31 --> 00:39:34

she passed away, she was from the states and

00:39:36 --> 00:39:47

she was the first student to register for the first 30 ML Quran program that was start in Canada. Her roll number was few figures and 001.

00:39:48 --> 00:39:54

Then she was the first student to register for the advanced course that was first taught in Canada by

00:39:56 --> 00:39:58

again, her rule number was 001

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

And then after that, she didn't just stop there. But she helped in conducting many courses, several courses various in different ways, whether it was conducting a class or leading the discussion or marking test papers or listening to the lessons of the students. She did it constantly, since 2005. She was working on this.

00:40:22 --> 00:40:42

And yesterday was Friday. And she was also conducting another class. And she was conducting it online, basically, where she plays recordings. It was break time, she played through took half that was going to be played for at least 1520 minutes. And during that time, she went to pick up her daughter.

00:40:44 --> 00:40:47

And there was a car accident, and she died on the spot.

00:40:49 --> 00:41:00

She appeared to be online, what she wasn't there anymore. She was doing her work. And she died while she was doing it. Because of sudo, Taka was playing all the students were waiting.

00:41:02 --> 00:41:05

They came back but she didn't. The same day.

00:41:06 --> 00:41:17

Her in charge received packages of test papers that she had marked and mailed. She had done her work and submitted it on time. She was gone, but her work came.

00:41:18 --> 00:41:23

The point is that life can be over at any time,

00:41:24 --> 00:41:25


00:41:26 --> 00:41:36

So let not the comfort of this world distract you from your purpose. Let not the enjoyment of this world distract you from your main goal.

00:41:38 --> 00:42:24

What is important in life is important. You have to do it. And while you're doing it, you suffer, you do get tired, there will be nights when you will stay awake. There will be days when you will not enjoy yourself because you're studying. But this is how life is. Because the fact is that this life is not the place of reward. This world is not the place of reward. Where is the place of reward in Jannah? That is warehousemen filibus. If you're striving for luxury and comfort and peace in this life, you're never going to find it. Where will you find it? In Ghana, you can sit for two hours sipping on a cup of tea but it will never bring you satisfaction. Never. You could sit for three

00:42:24 --> 00:42:38

hours watching television. It will never bring you satisfaction. Satisfaction can only be in Jana and Jana you don't get by watching TV. You don't get Jana by sipping on tea. You get Jana by doing hard work.

00:42:39 --> 00:42:51

So work hard. Do something make use of your time. Don't waste any day. Don't waste any moment. Don't delay don't defer do it now.

00:42:53 --> 00:43:07

But it's only people who use their mind and reason who are alert and conscious will reflect on the creation that realize the reality that I am here for some time. I will be gone very soon.

00:43:08 --> 00:43:16

My time is not mine. I don't rule over it. My life. I don't have any authority over it. A mosquito can bite me and I'm done.

00:43:18 --> 00:43:20

One car can hit me and I'm done.

00:43:21 --> 00:43:34

So don't take this life for granted. Do something don't take this knowledge for granted this information for granted. Do something and beg ALLAH because ALLAH responds to the door of who

00:43:36 --> 00:43:44

So may Allah give us the ability to really use our mind use our reason reflect and learn and do something to arrange a

00:43:46 --> 00:43:46


00:43:48 --> 00:43:49

first job

00:43:52 --> 00:43:54


00:44:00 --> 00:44:01


00:44:03 --> 00:44:04


00:44:09 --> 00:44:10


00:44:13 --> 00:44:13


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


00:44:22 --> 00:44:23

saying you

00:44:28 --> 00:44:28

can't fail

00:44:34 --> 00:44:35


00:44:43 --> 00:44:43


00:44:58 --> 00:44:59

Well long horn

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