Let's begin our lesson I in number 68 of surah. Tell us

00:00:09 --> 00:01:11

what are Buka and your Lord, your local, he creates my Yasha or whatever He wills, welltower Tarot. And he chooses, he creates whatever He wills. And he also chooses whatever and whoever He wills. The word Tarot is from the word FTL. From the root letters, ha, yeah, raw hide, hide means that which is good. And if Tara Yato FTR is to have freedom in one's choices, meaning a person has the freedom to choose whatever he wants, he has the freedom to like or dislike whatever he wants. And generally, what is it that a person chooses? What is it that a person likes what he thinks to be quite? Like, for example, a person who owns some money, like for example, a person has $50 in their pocket, they

00:01:11 --> 00:02:03

have the FTR they have the choice, the freedom to use that $50 For whatever they want. And a person who's got $50 that belong to somebody else in their pocket, do they have if they have to do whatever they want? No, they do not have the freedom, right? Because it doesn't belong to them. So Allah alone, Rob Booker, your Lord is the one who creates and your Lord is the one who chooses why, because everything belongs to who it belongs to Him and Him alone, because he is a Malik. He is allelic. He is an Malik. He is the king. He is the sovereign, he is the one with supreme authority. There is nothing except that ALLAH is its owner. And who are we we are His creation. We are mum,

00:02:03 --> 00:03:06

Luke, we are owned by him. And Allah is Malik. So the owner is the one who has choice, not the one who is owned. So Rob Booker Yahoo, local mayor Shah who worked out, he can choose whatever whoever He wills. The decision is his more Kana man, not Ghana, it is law home for them, for who for the creation, for people, for the man look for those who are owned, they do not have a law here are the choice or hero, the ability or the liberty, the authority to choose. So people as creation, we do not have the choice. This choice rests with who Allah subhanaw taala. So the Han Allah He exalted, perfect is Allah, what Allah and he is high above unmei you Shikun from that which they associate

00:03:06 --> 00:03:32

with him, because Allah alone has his authority. And those besides Allah do not have this authority or right at all. So Allah is far above them. You know, in certain uncovered we learned about the example of shake, right, that how those who worship others besides Allah, those who call upon others besides Allah, it is as if they are relying upon a spider's web.

00:03:33 --> 00:04:20

And the weakest of our houses is which house spider's web, it cannot even protect itself, the spider cannot even protect its web is in itself. In the Quran, we are also given the example of a fly that how those who associate packers with Allah, those who are associated with Allah, they are so weak that they cannot even create something like a fly. And if a fly takes something away from them, they cannot even take it back. So if there is an idol, and a fly comes and sits on it, it cannot Shoo it away, can it it doesn't have the ability and if there is a person or anything else that is worshipped can you take anything back from the fly? No, I mean, if a fly comes and sits on your food

00:04:20 --> 00:04:59

and flies away in a second and there's probably more than one fly in the area, how do you know which fly took it? Right which fly was it? It's so difficult to even catch a fly. So Subhan Allah He with Allah on my usually gone everything everyone besides Allah, what power do they have? They don't have any power. So how can they have the authority to choose? How can they have the ability to create and to give preference to one over the other when they cannot even help themselves? How can they give to others? Now there is a particular context to this I basically we learned that the machine

00:05:00 --> 00:05:16

Kean right of Makkah, because the surah is murky, we learn that they criticize the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they said that, you know, if Allah had to send a prophet, why would he choose Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, an orphan,

00:05:17 --> 00:05:57

right. And even though the prophets of Allah Sena was at that time, 40 years old, but the fact that his father had died before even he was born, right, this is something that mattered in that society, an orphan. Secondly, he's not really wealthy compared to some other people. So they said that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam should not have been a prophet, as if they were saying that Allah made a bad choice. Allah made a bad decision. Now the villa that if Allah had to send the Prophet, he should have chosen one of the two great men, right from the two cities, one person from Makkah and the other person from five, and we were there referring to Walid bin Mahira. And over the Masuda

00:05:57 --> 00:06:40

coffee, we're leaving the lira from Makkah because he was a great man. Walid bin Molina, by the way, he was the father of Khalid bin Walid Rhodiola horn. All right, and Walid bin Molina had many sons, he had a lot of property and we learn more about him later on in the Quran. They certainly believe in the leader because of the fact that he has so many sons. The fact that he has so much wealth, so much authority, he's a big name, he should have been made a profit. And if not him, then Okay, someone from power. If someone like Robin Masuda coffee, why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Allah clarifies over here, that someone being chosen is not on the basis of what you think what

00:06:40 --> 00:07:13

you choose what you prefer, what you like, or what you dislike. Someone being chosen, or someone not being chosen. This is ultimately by whose decision, Allah's decision because He is the Creator. He is the owner into Zoho fire 31. Allah subhanaw taala says we're Carlu Lola new Zilla huddle Quran, Allah Raju liminal Korea, tiny Alim that they say Why was this Quran sent down? Why was this Quran not sent down upon a great man from one of the two cities.

00:07:14 --> 00:08:03

So they criticize they objected, as if they were saying, Allah subhanaw taala has made a bad choice. Now this is something that's, you know, very problematic, right? Even hearing the statement is something that makes us upset, right? It's blasphemous, if you think about it. Now, in general terms, remember, this is a very, very important principle that we should remember. We need to bring this to our context to our lives, that we as human beings, who are we, we are Allah's servants, we are owned by him, I, and when we are owned by him, and he is our owner, then he is the one who chooses, he is the one who decides we don't have that authority. And if we had even a little bit of

00:08:03 --> 00:08:39

this authority, than we would have chosen, whether we want it to be a man or a woman, seriously, if we had even a little bit of this authority, then we would have chosen in which house we should have been born in, or at least we should have chosen if we even want it to be more. Do we have that choice? Can we don't have that choice? Did Allah ask you before He created? You know, he didn't ask you, because we don't have that authority? We are owned by him. You know, for example, when you go buy a pen, do you ask the pen? Should I buy you? What do you think?

00:08:41 --> 00:08:45

No, you don't ask that question. It's your choice, isn't it?

00:08:46 --> 00:08:58

When alone McConnell, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala. He is the owner. It's his decision that matters, our choices, what we think it doesn't matter. It's irrelevant.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:43

So ultimate absolute, if the hour is with who? With who, with Allah, subhanaw taala. And Subhan. Allah He with Allah, Allah usually called, What does this teach us? That? Why would you even think about Allah, that he did not make a good decision? How could you even think like that? Who is it? That would make a bad decision? Someone who has limited knowledge, isn't it? Like, for example, you do all your research before buying an alarm clock? Which one would be good, you do so much research, you waste so much time reading one review after the other and checking one website after the other. And then finally you buy an alarm clock, and you think it's really good. And then what happens when

00:09:43 --> 00:09:49

somebody comes and sees it? You have this you should have asked me. I bought it a year ago it's useless.

00:09:50 --> 00:10:00

Right? When somebody says that to you, then you ask what happened, what's wrong with it and they start telling you about the problems that it has caused them. Right. So why

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

Did you make a bad choice? Because you have limited knowledge, isn't it? So we as human beings, no matter how much knowledge and experience we have, remember we are prone to error, because we are imperfect, we are not a center,

00:10:18 --> 00:10:36

we are not free of defects. Allah Azza wa Jalla, who is he? A salon and who is a salon, the one who is free from any defect whatsoever He is perfect, he is attributed with the attributes of perfection.

00:10:37 --> 00:11:29

So, his knowledge is perfect, right and his knowledge includes the past, present and future, his wisdom, his decision. So, whatever he has chosen, whatever he has decided, remember it is the best, it is really the best. So, if Allah chose Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to be His Prophet, then Allah made the best decision. If Allah chose that you fail your Jeetu despite your efforts, then in sha Allah, it was a good decision that Allah has made because this is something that will result in goodness if you did your best. Okay. So when Allah subhanaw taala decides for us remember, it is the best decision if Allah decided that it should become cold now, then it is the best decision.

00:11:31 --> 00:12:19

All right, if Allah allowed anything to happen, Allah decreed anything in his religion, remember, it is the best decree if Allah has decreed certain things in our deen, certain do's and certain don'ts, certain rights that he has given to some groups of people and certain rights that he is not given to other groups of people. If he has distributed this in his creation, then remember it is the best decision because Subhan Allah He what Allah onma Yoshi cone, what Booker and your Lord Yarl mo he knows man that which to keep it concealed to Kin, no calf no known. We have done this word numerous times before. So Allah knows what their hearts conceal not to kiss them. So do employ off solder.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:49

Allah knows what people can see in their hearts. Now in the context. What is this referred to the most he can whatever bad feelings whatever hatred, you know, they had for the Prophet salallahu Salam in their heart, feelings of jealousy, because it was ultimately jealousy, right? Then why was he chosen? Why was he selected? Why did you choose to come to him? Why was he chosen by Allah? Why not mean? Why not he? Why not my relative.

00:12:50 --> 00:13:00

And many times this happens in our lives also, that if one person is given something that we have not been given, what kind of feelings do we entertain in our hearts? Well, why not me?

00:13:02 --> 00:13:06

Right, just like little children, if one is given a candy, the other will say, what about me?

00:13:07 --> 00:13:52

Right, but we should grow out of this, and understand that everybody cannot have a candy. Right? So this is sadly how we think many times that when we see something that others have been given, and we have not been given, instead of feeling happy for the other person, we begin to feel jealous. Instead of thinking about and appreciating and using what Allah has given us, we get upset about what has been given to others. So whether this feelings of jealousy or it is hatred for others, or its anger with Allah's decree, or it's objecting it Allah's decision having problems with Allah's decree, whatever it is that a person conceals in their heart, while Buka ya allah Munna to Kin usado

00:13:52 --> 00:14:19

rowhome. When are you really known and majorly known that which they reveal it learn, I am known, that which they reveal that which they declare we in the little bit which they do express Allah subhanaw taala knows about that also, because it is the same to Allah, whether a person whispers something screams that out loud, or he just says in his heart, it's the same to Allah because his knowledge is all encompassing.

00:14:20 --> 00:15:00

So when Allah knows what we think, and what we say, do we not have higher of Allah than, should we not have higher some level of shyness before Allah subhanaw taala he knows what I'm thinking. He knows what feelings I am entertaining in my heart. What jealousy I'm allowing to grow too subtle in my heart, Allah knows so have higher of Allah. How can we entertain such thoughts about Allah? How could we ever think that Allah made a bad decision that Allah should have done such and such or he should not have done such and such whose judgment or we criticize

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

thing, does this even benefit us? Does this even defeat us that we as Allah's creation, we as Allah, Islam, look, we are criticizing Allah? And if we have done so, can we escape Allah's Anger and punishment. So this is a threat. This is a threat, that whatever you're feeling inside, don't think Allah doesn't know. He knows what you're feeling inside. He knows how angry you are with his decree.

00:15:29 --> 00:16:18

He knows about it. Remember that Allah subhanaw taala has decrees his hukum his is of two types. One is counting and the other is shutter. One is commonly commonly meaning related to the creation in a worldly matters basically. All right, like for example, you fall ill or for example, you're feeling very cold. Or, for example, your favorite team lost, right or, for example, somebody came, somebody went, somebody was born, somebody's eyes are a certain color or somebody's height is very less or anything like that, these are all company matters, that happen because of Allah's permission, right, he allowed it, he made it happen and this is why it happened. And the other kind of camera is that

00:16:18 --> 00:16:43

which is shattering, meaning that which is within the religion, that which Allah has legislated the law that Allah has revealed for His servants that they must observe, like for example, pray five times a day. For example, the law of inheritance, for example, the law of cause sauce, you know, whether it is criminal law, or whatever kind of law that we derived from the Quran and Sunnah. That is what Sharia law. Okay, shuttering.

00:16:44 --> 00:16:47

So if a person has any problem

00:16:48 --> 00:16:52

with Allah's and whether that amorous county are shuttering

00:16:53 --> 00:17:03

and that, you know, frustration or anger, or whatever bad feelings a person has, whether they keep it in their heart, or they express it, Allah knows.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:12

You know, this was at least a tradition until sometime ago, that if people had a problem with religion, they would just keep quiet.

00:17:13 --> 00:17:26

They had a problem with Quran, they would just keep quiet, they'd be angry inside, but they would just keep quiet. But now we see a wave of people boldly, you know, very confidently going off against the Quran and Sunnah.

00:17:27 --> 00:17:28


00:17:29 --> 00:17:40

I mean, it's amazing how people who are supposed to be Muslim are the ones who are criticizing the Quran and criticizing the Sunnah, criticizing their hijab and criticizing every aspect of the deen.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:44

So, look at this, I won't be

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

mad to kill

00:17:47 --> 00:17:58

y'all, you know. Now again, let's bring it to our own lives. You know, sometimes when we look in the mirror, when we stare at our eyebrows, we're like, oh,

00:18:00 --> 00:18:04

I wished this part was, you know, oh, well, for me.

00:18:06 --> 00:18:15

This is what not being okay with Allah's decision, and then getting upset. You know what? So difficult you kind of went shape your eyebrows.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:59

We couldn't do that. Getting upset with Colleen, and shadow Yama. Now it's possible that you just have this conversation with yourself when you're looking in your phone staring at your eyebrows. You know what I mean? And it's quite possible that you verbalize this, you know you have this discussion with somebody in a panel or in your school or whatever it is. Whether you had this conversation with yourself or you had it with somebody else who knows about it. Allah knows and this is a threat. Be careful. If you have a problem with Allah's decree, do you even realize what you're putting yourself up for? You're angry with Allah you're angry with his decision?

00:19:00 --> 00:19:12

What are you doing? What are you doing think about it. Sometimes we have a problem not with our physical features but with the people that are in our lives or I wish so and so was not my relative I was so and so was not in my life.

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


00:19:15 --> 00:19:58

when I was coming home from work, I was just thinking about you know, different things going on in life and I was kind of complaining right in my own head. Like, why is this happening or whatever. And right away Allah made me right away look at a homeless person on the street sidewalk, walking in this cold weather, you know, he was dragging a cart with lots of garbage in it and some food or whatever. And, you know, I felt so sad. I'm like, What am I complaining? I'm sitting in a car warm. I'm going to a house which is warm. I have food on my you know, table. What am I complaining about? There's nothing my problems are nothing compared to what this man is going through. This is the

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

thing that however

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

In our life is whatever situation we are in, no matter how apparently worldly problem it may be, you know, because sometimes we think it was something that's purely worldly. How does that have an effect on our religion? It does because something that's purely worldly by, for example, your paycheck, or your car, or what happened when you were driving, it affects your thinking,

00:20:24 --> 00:20:29

doesn't it? It affects your speech. It affects your belief,

00:20:30 --> 00:21:01

your perspective on life, and it matters. So ultimately, what we're being taught in these verses is that if something happened, which you did not choose yourself, remember Allah chose it. And if Allah chose it, don't criticize Allah's decision. Don't you dare criticize Allah's decision. Surrender to it, accept it, and Allah will bring good from it. Look at the first word that we learned, what are my thoughts? What is it that Allah chooses?

00:21:02 --> 00:21:08

What is it that Allah selects? If you're thorough, what does it mean to choose what you think is,

00:21:09 --> 00:21:12

is hailed?

00:21:13 --> 00:22:10

So if Allah has chosen something for us, and if we accept his decision, it's not possible that you will suffer, that you will get shatter from it. No, Allah will give you head through that. Provided that you accept it. Provided that you accept His Will you accept his decree. Wha hoo Allahu. And He is Allah La ilaha illa who there is no deity except Him. He is the one who is deserving of worship and our criticizing his judgment does not affect him at all. Lahore you handle for him is praise due to him is all ultimate praise Phil owner when a hero in the owner and the akhira What does Allah mean? Ola is a feminine have a will a will is first hola is also first and the opposite of Goddess

00:22:10 --> 00:22:28

Hera that which is last. So he is worthy of praise he's deserving of being praised in the first and the last. What does it mean by this in the first and the last? This can be understood it in numerous ways. Firstly, from the beginning to the end,

00:22:29 --> 00:23:15

you know, at the beginning of something and at the end of something so every matter that Allah brings about, from its very inception from its very beginning until its conclusion, Allah is deserving of praise, because how it started and how it ended it is all perfect. It was all perfectly planned by Allah. It was executed in the best way. Level Hanley Phil, Allah will occur, what happens to us when we start something? Either we have a very bad start, right? Are we embed end? Or we've just barely made it through? We're not deserving of praise and if somebody praises us, good job, what is it that you tell yourself? Yeah, right. Good job. I don't know how this happened. Hi, I

00:23:15 --> 00:23:25

don't know how this happened. I just saw how the result was good. And this is why you say Alhamdulillah, Allah made it happen. Right? So loving, humbly fill all our Accra.

00:23:26 --> 00:23:34

And also this can be understood as in the first meaning alone, it refers to the first life. Okay, so in this dunya

00:23:35 --> 00:24:01

whatever happens, Allah is deserving of praise. So I will correct my statement that I made earlier Alhamdulillah for what happened last night, because whatever happens, happens for good, you know, whether we fail or we when we lose, or we accomplish something, whatever happens Alhamdulillah the Prophet salallahu Salam, when he received something good, he said Alhamdulillah and when something bad happened, you would say Alhamdulillah Allah.

00:24:03 --> 00:24:55

Salah 100 Allah in this worldly life, no matter what happens, no matter what disaster happens, no matter what catastrophe happens, no matter what, you know, global problem happens Alhamdulillah still Alhamdulillah because Allah is worthy of praise, even then, we think Alhamdulillah only when something good happens and something good, what is good, what we want, how selfish we are. All right. So now we'll handle the full owner and it refers to the afterlife meaning what will happen in the next world, even for that Allah is deserving of praise. So from the beginning to the end, in this life, and in the next life, Allah is worthy of praise for his judgment, for his decision for

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

his decree, because whatever he has said, is good, whatever he

00:25:00 --> 00:25:29

has done is good. Whatever he has legislated is good, it is best one a whole hokhmah. And for him is the decision, meaning he has the right to make the ultimate the final decision, I'll have it refers to over here such a decision that is implemented, for sure it is implemented, no matter how much you know, people resist, still it will be implemented.

00:25:30 --> 00:25:33

Sometimes what happens? You make a rule.

00:25:34 --> 00:25:36

And then you yourself go against.

00:25:37 --> 00:25:46

Right? Like, for example, you make a rule that the way when people enter the house, they have to take their shoes off. It's the rule.

00:25:47 --> 00:26:30

But then what happens when you're in a rush? And you're stepping out the door and you realize you've forgotten the key? Are you going to sit down, take your boots off? And then walk inside and get your keys? No, you're gonna do away with the rule. Even if as the older sibling was the mother, you are the one who made that rule you yourself go against it, isn't it? You know what I'm talking about? Right? It happens with us all the time. So the rule is not implemented. Or sometimes we want to make sure the rule is implemented. We remind other people, we write down the rules, family rules, and we put them up, you know, different parts of the house. And then what happens? People walk past it as

00:26:30 --> 00:26:49

if it doesn't even exist. Right? People go and do whatever they want your rules, your decisions. It's like they don't even matter. Allah subhanaw taala has decision how is it? It is a nerf if it is implemented? Like for example, if Allah decrees that someone should die,

00:26:51 --> 00:26:56

and no matter how upset the family is, or no matter how upset the person is, is that really change anything?

00:26:57 --> 00:27:03

isn't gonna change anything? Nothing at all? No hook? No. What's the lesson over here?

00:27:04 --> 00:27:57

That we cannot escape. Allah has overcome his decree, no matter how much we resist, what he lay, he told your own, and to him, You shall be returned, you cannot avoid this. So it is in our best interest that we accept Allah's decisions. And we come to terms with his decrees, it's in our best decision. Resisting, though, is only going to bring us anger and frustration and unhappiness, because we cannot cause any damage to him. Nor can we change Allah's decree. And our Lord is not unfair. He is not unfair. So whatever decision he has made, it is the best. So accepting is what is in our best interest. So surrendering to Him, is only going to help us it's a win win. Because

00:27:58 --> 00:28:06

firstly, we have surrendered to Him. Right? And secondly, when we have surrendered to His will, that Allah will bring about good in that also.

00:28:08 --> 00:28:47

You know, just consider the life of Musa listen and because we have studied the life of Musa al Islam in the Surah, right? That was already Salaam in the accidental murder that happened in the following day when it was publicized. And then you know, people were coming to catch him. So basically, he fled. Right, he ran away. Just put yourself in that situation how difficult that must have been for Musa isn't that how within a day his life changed? Isn't it? Now, if he did not accept it and did not make the best of that situation? Could he have been happy in his life? Could he have lived a good life?

00:28:49 --> 00:29:19

You see, what we want is as human beings, what we're seeking is peace and happiness. Right? You know, if we have to make a decision concerning, for example, what we want to buy, we want to buy something that's going to be most comfortable, that's going to look, you know, most good, right? We want things to be problem free. It's like for example, when I buy dishes, it has to go in the dishwasher. If it's not dishwasher safe. I do not buy it.

00:29:20 --> 00:29:37

Simple. That's my rule. Because I want my kitchen to be somewhat problem free that you use it, stick it in the dishwasher, right? Stick it in the dishwasher, stick it in the dishwasher, that's just my rule, because I want things to be problem free in my kitchen. But does that eliminate loading the dishwasher and unloading it?

00:29:38 --> 00:29:59

Does it? No, it doesn't. So just because I have dishwasher saved dishes in my kitchen. Does that eliminate the problem of washing dishes? It doesn't there's still a problem. Okay, fine. There's one less problem but there's still a problem. Isn't that this is the reality of this life that no matter what you choose to do

00:30:00 --> 00:30:05

What you choose to leave, you will still have some problem in your life.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:21

All right, this is the reality of this life. Gentleman is Darussalam the home of peace and safety, meaning the whole which is problem free. That is Janna. It's not done yet.

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

But doesn't unless pathauto say, you know, for example, we learned about the importance of saying a Salam aleikum, greet each other with a Salaam Alaikum Peace be on you, Miss Salam be on you. So when we're seeing this and I'm be on you, then what does it mean it's not going to work? What kind of Salam, what kind of safety? What kind of peace? What kind of, you know, happiness is it that we can achieve in this life? It's not physical. It is that of the heart. When the heart can be at peace. You look at the lives of the prophets. What difficult lives they lived, then.

00:31:00 --> 00:31:26

And Allah subhanaw taala says salam, O Allah knew May peace be unknown, Johanna surrounded he live a problem free life. Come on 900 years dealing with such difficult people and then building a ship and being mocked at and then the storm coming. The flood coming and then watching his own son drown. Just imagine, Allah says salam O Allah Allah know

00:31:27 --> 00:31:37

when we say the name of the Prophet, what do we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Solana may Salam be on him. So what was he in?

00:31:38 --> 00:31:43

What time was a prophet Sallallahu sallam was in it was the salam of the heart.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:54

Right? Which is why we learned that when the Prophet salallahu Salam and Abu Bakr al de lo and who when they were in the cave, what did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say like that isn't in the La Romana.

00:31:55 --> 00:32:07

This is the security, the peace, the happiness, the problem, free feeling that we can have when we rely upon Allah subhanaw taala when the heart is at peace, when the heart is at ease,

00:32:08 --> 00:32:45

physical, external Solana we cannot have ever we cannot achieve in this life. No matter how much money we gather, no matter how much power we have, no matter how many helpers we have, no matter how many friends we have, no matter how many lovers we have, doesn't matter. It's irrelevant. It's not going to bring this external tsunami ever, ever. But what we can attain is what the Salama of the heart. And when a person has said on off the heart that he's content with Allah's decree, happy accepting, submitting to Allah than Allah who will admit this person in Daraa salaam where there will be salam from Allah

00:32:46 --> 00:33:19

safety problem free life that exists only in Jana. So over here, what do we learn lol holofil una will akhira Well, I will hook you were elated towards your own you cannot escape Allah's plan. So surrender to it be at peace now and forever be happy later. The whole handle fill Hola, Walla, walla hole Haku wa la he told your own. Over here in this iron hand is mentioned that Allah is worthy of praise.

00:33:20 --> 00:33:38

We learned that once a poet a sweat when he embraced Islam he came to the Prophet salallahu Salam. And he said that in my poetry, I praised Allah. Meaning I said verses of for tree in which was Allah's praise. So basically was asking Is that okay?

00:33:40 --> 00:34:28

And the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, in Rebecca, you have will hand your Lord loves how he loves to be praised. He loves it when his servant praises him. So if a person praises Allah in their poetry in their daily, you know, language, in their texting, in their posting, in their, you know, reflections in their casual conversations, whatever situation they're in, when a person praises Allah Alhamdulillah then this is something that Allah loves. Because a servant has shown servitude to Allah subhanaw taala he has accepted Allah's decree, so Allah loves it. In another Hadith we learn the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Man and che in there is nothing that is more beloved to

00:34:28 --> 00:34:30

Allah than hand.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:43

On Allah loves hand. Why? Because he is worthy of it. Even if he loves it because of himself. He is worthy of it. But he loves it even more because his servant is praising you.

00:34:44 --> 00:34:57

You understand? You see with us what happens when somebody praises us. Why do we like that praise? We feel special. We forget about the people who are praising us.

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

Right? And we're saying

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

I'm happy that we are being praised.

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

Right? This is our problem. We don't appreciate the people who are praising us who are appreciating us. Allah subhanaw taala loves hand. Why? Because first of all, he loves to be praised. All right, he loves to be praised. He is Metallica, but he is the one who deserves it. All right. And secondly, because his servant is praising Him. Allah loves sugar from His servants. Right? He appreciates when his servants show gratitude to him. This is why He rewards so generously so abundantly.

00:35:37 --> 00:35:46

In other Hadith we learn that the Prophet sallallaahu Salam said that the people in Jannah would glorify and praise Allah as easily as you breathe

00:35:47 --> 00:35:51

as easily as you breathe. Do you think about breathing?

00:35:52 --> 00:35:54

Do you tell yourself okay, I'm going to breathe now.

00:35:55 --> 00:36:09

Or maybe if you're exercising, and you're in a very difficult falls or something, you know, during a very difficult stretch, then you're like, breathe, breathe. But like for example, right now, do you have to tell yourself to breathe?

00:36:11 --> 00:36:13

Do you? Do you stop writing in order to breathe?

00:36:14 --> 00:36:21

No, you don't. It comes naturally. People in Jannah will praise Allah glorify Allah Ha,

00:36:22 --> 00:36:24

ha, naturally.

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

But this will happen when we are in the habit of praising Allah know that no matter what happens, and 100 Allah Alhamdulillah

00:36:38 --> 00:36:44

and not just saying and humble Allah so that we don't have anything else to say. You know, because sometimes we say 100 Allah because we don't know what else to say.

00:36:46 --> 00:36:54

No 100 Allah consciously know only with the heart level Hello, Phil owner will Akira

00:36:55 --> 00:37:28

now Allah subhanaw taala further proves our weakness to us. Poland say our item Have you considered if Jain Allahu Allah Hamid I lay come on you uh Leila the night Have you considered if Allah were to make the night on you saw Ramadan continuous sadhana then is from the root letters seen Raul meme dal, or it's from the letters? Scene? Gra, Dan.

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


00:37:31 --> 00:37:35

Now, what does it mean by settled scene rodelle.

00:37:36 --> 00:38:24

Scene raw dal Sarada literally means to continue to follow uninterruptedly. Right? And the mean is extra over here. Does it for the purpose of mobile lover for intensiveness for signification. All right, so endlessly. So what would be some month? What would it be? When something continues, keeps happening? Keeps going without stopping? Like it's never ending, never ending? There is no break, no pause, nothing. Like it's going on forever and ever, ever. Like you might be thinking that I'm just talking and talking. But don't worry and child stops him. Okay? This is Sarmad. Right and solid. Otherwise, it's understood as something with endless duration without interruption or end by image

00:38:24 --> 00:39:07

below in Qatar, meaning when something is continuous without any end, when something has the one, when something has a default, meaning it's continuous, there is no breakage in the middle. All right, found this the word Samadhi is used for something that has no beginning or end. Meaning not literally, but in the sense that, you know, for example, if you have a mark on your body, and somebody asks you, how did this happen? You're like, it's been there. Since before I can remember either. It's always been there. Apparently, when I was six months old and such and such happened. Right? It's always been there. It's a part of you. That is somebody. All right. So no beginning no

00:39:07 --> 00:39:54

one. It's not going anywhere. All right. So Elaine, Allah subhanaw taala sang over here, that have you considered, do you even understand whose judgment you are criticizing? Think about it. If Allah who were to make the night upon you continuous, literally continuous without a break in the middle, meaning there is not even a single day. The sun does not rise at all. It's just Night, night, night night. 124 hour cycle after another month after month, year after year. It's just night you don't see the light of the day at all. Eli yono piano until the day of judgment if this were to happen, and can it happen? Yes, it can. If Allah wills it can happen.

00:39:56 --> 00:39:59

Allah asks us man who Illa who

00:40:00 --> 00:40:29

And God, how you Allah He besides Allah yet de come? Who will bring you Babel? Yeah in with light? Who is that God you have besides Allah who could bring you light? I feel like a smartphone, then do you not here? Do you not listen to this proof? Our weakness is further emphasized over here that think about it. If Allah were to make the Night continuous,

00:40:30 --> 00:40:32

can you do anything about it?

00:40:33 --> 00:41:01

For sure you cannot do anything about it. You cannot change it back to day and night cycle. You don't have that power. You don't have that means to reverse Allah's decision. You cannot change it, even if you gather up all of your resources and all of your power. So then do you have a God? Who could do that for you? Do you have a God who could do that for you? Or do you have who could reverse Allah's decision? Who could change Allah's decision?

00:41:02 --> 00:41:23

You see, when it comes to the natural order of the universe, right, or the natural disasters, so called natural disasters that happen, the incidents that happen from these changes that happen? Literally we are helpless before it. Literally, if a volcano is erupting, and there's ashes up in the air,

00:41:24 --> 00:41:26

can we say okay, enough, no stop.

00:41:27 --> 00:41:35

We're gonna have to shut down our airports, cancel flights for weeks and weeks, that we cannot stop that volcano.

00:41:36 --> 00:42:28

We cannot we are helpless before this. So Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us over You do realize where you are. Then how do you criticize the Allah's judgment? How do you criticize his decisions all the time say Have you considered in jail Allahu Ali Khan, if Allah made on you, and the hara the day, Sama then continuous now the day if Allah were to make the day continuous upon you, such that there is no night Eli Elmo piano until the Day of Judgment, then man allow him later Allah Who was that God other than Allah yet Deacon belay, who could bring you the night the screening and a fee in which you could rest in the scanner the scanner from second which means that for sukau night is

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

essential. darkness of the night is essential. And seriously, if you think about it, you know if you sleep in the day, no matter how many hours you sleep, and if you sleep in a night even if it's a very few hours, which sleep is more restful

00:42:45 --> 00:42:55

night's sleep, so cool, that only comes with the sleep in the night. I fell out of sight on well then will you not see Will you not see your air?

00:42:56 --> 00:42:59

So over here, Allah subhanaw taala is making us think

00:43:01 --> 00:43:05

realize our own weakness and the power of Allah subhanaw taala

00:43:06 --> 00:43:27

our status compared to the status of Allah azza wa jal, we are so limited in our abilities, we're so helpless. Getting angry with Allah's decision is only harming oneself. Now, something important that's mentioned in this idea about the night the school Nona fee, you can only find school in the night.

00:43:28 --> 00:44:14

Alright, which means that if the day was continuous, you wouldn't have sukoon even if you tried to sleep. And this is something that's very true. You see dark is what triggers rest and light triggers wakefulness, okay. Darkness, you know, when it's dark, when we are in a dark place, it triggers melatonin release in our bodies. All right. And it is this chemical that lowers blood pressure, glucose levels, as well as body temperature. And when these things happen, these are basically key physiological responses, which are responsible for restful sleep, meaning when all of these things happen, that means that yes, our sleep is restful. Light. On the other hand, what does that do? It

00:44:14 --> 00:44:44

suppresses this chemical in our bodies. And this is why when there's light, we're not able to sleep. Or even if we sleep, that sleep is not really restful, right? I mean, think about it. If you're sitting in a dark room, dark in the sense that the lights are off. Okay. And the windows, the shutters are closed, or let's say it's night outside and the light is very dim. Are you going to feel awake or sleepy?

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

Are you going to feel sleepy? And if you happen to fall asleep when the lights were on, if you happen to fall asleep when the TV is on?

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

How do you wake up?

00:45:01 --> 00:45:49

How do you wake up seriously? It's as if you didn't get your rest. As you fall asleep on the couch in the living room, you know what I'm talking about, right? How do you wake up? It says if you didn't get your rest, even though you slept for so many hours, you were knocked out. That still it is as if you did not get your rest. So, for a restful sleep, darkness is essential. If we don't sleep in the dark, our sleep will not be restful. So over a year, you were being taught in the halls decrees Are you challenging holes Hohokam? Are you refusing to accept women Rama tea and follow His mercy? It is out of His mercy, that Gianna he has made Lacan for you a Laila wonder how the night

00:45:50 --> 00:46:31

and the day? Why has he made the night and the day two different things? Why? Lita schooner fee? He said that you may rest in it. When is it that we find rest in the night while he talked to a woman publicly? And so that you seek from His bounty? And when does this happen during the day, when Allah calm slash Quran, and so that you are grateful, meaning when you have this natural schedule, the night to end the day, darkness and light than a part of your day you sleep, and the part of the day you work, and at the end, you are actually able to produce something in your life, you're actually able to achieve something in your life. And when you achieve something in your life that is chicwish

00:46:31 --> 00:46:53

to Allah, I did something with the time with the life that Allah who gave me. So in Messiah, what do we learn the alternation of the night and the day are a sign of Allah's mercy, they are a part of Allah's mercy. And this teaches us that we have to take advantage of the night and we also have to take advantage of the day. Right? Night. What is it for?

00:46:55 --> 00:47:27

What is it for, for rest? Does this mean that we cannot be up at night to do some work we can be? If it's necessary, of course we can be. There is no harm in doing that. However, you know, the bulk of your work or the most important work, when should that be done? In the daytime, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, Beware of conversing after the night is still meaning when it's dark, when it's nighttime, then don't just go on socializing, socializing, talking, 14.

00:47:28 --> 00:47:29

Don't do that, why

00:47:33 --> 00:47:34

you will miss your Fajr

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

you'll miss your vendor.

00:47:39 --> 00:47:41

Exactly, and your day will be affected.

00:47:43 --> 00:47:46

Has it ever happened with you that you wake up just 10 minutes late.

00:47:47 --> 00:48:10

And because of that, you don't end up having your breakfast. Right? You rush out the door. So you forget your laptop charger. Right. And then when you get to school, you're so hungry. So after class, you run, you know to find food somewhere. And then you buy it, and then you're rushing to eat it. And because you ate so fast, your stomach is hurting now.

00:48:11 --> 00:48:35

And then you realize that your laptop is dead. So there goes all your time because you can't do your assignments now. Or in the middle of the workday, you have to go home and pick up your laptop charger so that you can continue your work. You see, your whole day got affected because you didn't sleep on time. Because of what you couldn't wake up on time because of which your productivity was affected.

00:48:36 --> 00:49:06

You couldn't achieve in that day which you could have achieved Have you slept on time? In other words, we learn that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam disliked to sleep before Isha and to talk after it. Okay. And this is especially referring to outside the house. Right inside the house. It's a different story. Like for example, if parents and children they're having a conversation after dinner after a shot, there's nothing wrong with it. But outside

00:49:07 --> 00:49:41

you know you're out of the house. Are you just talking socializing going to Timmies and then you'd like ice cream and then you know, this is our only night out so let's just take full advantage of it. Right? This is something that's disliked. In another Hadith we learned that this hadith is in Buhari that a person was mentioned before the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he was told that this man had kept on sleeping until morning and had not gotten up for the salah. And the Prophet sallallahu sallam said shaytaan urinated in his ears. Seriously. I mean, this is

00:49:42 --> 00:49:44

horrible. Isn't it horrible?

00:49:45 --> 00:49:46


00:49:48 --> 00:49:52

shut down urinating in our ears.

00:49:53 --> 00:49:58

We share time hobbies and hobbies which is why we so long many hours have become our

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


00:50:01 --> 00:50:09

Even a human being, even a baby. If by accident their urine comes on us how grossed out we feel

00:50:10 --> 00:50:23

and not in our skin and our clothes which we can quickly put in the wash and get you know and clean up, show up on urine, it's in the ear of the person who sleeps through Salah while we're here, the biller

00:50:25 --> 00:50:40

so the night and the day have a reason, let's take advantage of it. This is you know, key to productivity, taking the right advantage of the knife and taking the right advantage of the day. And if we mess this up, then our life will be messed up.

00:50:43 --> 00:51:24

And on the day, you and I d Him He will call them for our own or then he will say a initial rocker II, where are my partners? And Medina Clinton does Ramon, which you used to claim, were those your account which were used to associate with me, because of whom you forgotten me because of whom you criticized my decrees. Because what was preventing? I mean, if you think about it, what was the main problem that Michigan had with the profits or loss? Or was it the fact that really he was chosen to be a prophet? They loved him. They had immense respect for him. The problem was they didn't like his message. So this was an excuse. Why did Allah chose him? Why not somebody else this was just an

00:51:24 --> 00:52:07

excuse. They love their idols too much. They didn't want to leave them for a loss pompon. So on the Day of Judgment, Allah will ask, where are those idols that you used to associate with me because of whom you criticized my decrees you were so attached to them, that you prefer them over me? And you dared to criticize my decree? One Czarna and we will extract Meza to pull out, men commonly omitted from every nation shall II then a witness, from every community, on the Day of Judgment, a witness will be brought out? Who is this witness, the prophet that was sent to that nation? Because the Prophet of that nation will have to testify?

00:52:08 --> 00:52:53

Because people will respond that Oh, we didn't know that we were ignorant, we were unaware. So were they really unaware? Were they really ignorant? To prove that they weren't? Allah subhanaw taala will bring about the prophet of that nation, the prophet who was sent to them for me now then we will say how to be Hana come, bring your proof. Bring your proof that you were really ignorant when you're proof that really You Didn't Know Allah was one, produce your proof, justify your error, justify your misguidance justify your sheer folly more than they will know Anil? How can Allah that the truth belongs to Allah, they will know that yes, the Prophet came to us, he conveyed to us. We

00:52:53 --> 00:53:17

refuse to accept, we learned ignorant, we were at fault. So they will know that the truth belongs to Allah, meaning they will know that they are at fault, their loss will be evident to them will valon home and lost from them will be mad can we have to ruin that which they used to invent? So over here, a scene of the Day of Judgment is mentioned?

00:53:18 --> 00:53:48

And what is that scene that how people will be asked about their sins, and Allah subhanaw taala will prove their gift to them by bringing witnesses, the shahada, the witnesses and the prophets of Allah will be witnesses against their people or for them against them, then we conveyed the message for them that yes, they accepted the message. The last point I make is amongst those you know for whom the prophet will testify

00:53:49 --> 00:53:51

all right, we will listen to the recitation

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