00:00:22--> 00:00:52

Arosa Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish rocklea Sadie were silly. emri washingon rakata melissani of Cabo poly. Allah Matthew Colby was said that listen he was rules of humor the Colby menial Oberon mean, in sha Allah in today's class we are going to study the name of Allah unawareness and what is the inheritor or the ultimate air,

00:00:53--> 00:01:42

the name and why this occurs three times in the Quran and we see that every single time the name is mentioned in the plural form. And when it is said that, you know, for example, when Allah subhanaw taala says that we are the heirs when Allah uses the plural form to refer to himself in the Quran, then remember that the this plural is actually off royalty, meaning it is to show the greatness of Allah the Exalted, it does not mean that he is more than one this is not contrary to his though Hades to his oneness. Rather This is a style of speech and it shows extreme greatness. So every single time that this name is mentioned in the Quran, it is actually mentioned in the plural form,

00:01:43--> 00:02:35

which shows it adds to the greatness of Allah azza wa jal meaning of course, he is already great, but the the way that it is expressed, makes us realize how great Allah subhanaw taala is. So we see that this name is mentioned three times in the Quran, first of all we see in su hedger, ayah, number 23. Allah subhanaw taala mentions what in Ireland, of you when you need to, when national worry soon, that indeed we are the ones who give life and we are the ones who cause death and when national worry zone and we are the ultimate heirs the ultimate inheritors. Then we earn in su ambia i a number 89 that the curry Allah is Salah, he made our to Allah that rugby laughter though knee

00:02:35--> 00:03:29

follow then what and the Hyrule where he seen that Oh my Lord, do not leave me single or alone. Meaning grant me a child, do not leave me alone. And the fact is that you are the best of the heirs, meaning ultimately, it is you who owns everything, and everything is going to return to you. So you are the ultimate owner of all things. without your permission. Nothing can happen and without your grant. Without your giving someone nobody can have anything. So all power, all wealth, all resources are with you. So you're up, you grant me an air I'll be like I don't need follow then we're under highroad worry theme. Then we learn in Soto castles, verse number 58, where Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:29--> 00:04:12

says, What can Lucknow mean Kalia tiene bulkley lots Marie shatter her 14 comma sakeena one lump two scum embody him in La karela wirkungen National where the theme that how many towns how many people who who lived, you know, very arrogantly who were very proud of their possessions. But what happened ultimately, they were removed from the earth. So their homes are here standing till today. But those homes have not been inhabited by anyone since then. And except very little, what could national worry seen and indeed we are.

00:04:13--> 00:04:59

The air is meaning ultimately all people are going to die. And Allah subhanaw taala is going to inherit the entire world and whatever that is on it, whoever that is on it. So these are the three instances of this name, where this name occurs in the Quran. Now, what is the meaning of the word what is linguistically speaking? Now the word word is literally means the one who when he says meaning the one who inherits when we're talking about inheritance, generally we think of, you know, someone has passed away they have died, and they have left their wealth and all of their possessions. And now what's going to happen their family is going to inherit

00:05:00--> 00:05:56

Right there family is going to be the word is they're going to be the heirs. So they're going to take what was once someone else's property. So, for example, if a father if a man dies leaving behind children, then we say that the children are the heirs, meaning the children will get what was once the property of the Father, right. So the word word is is used in, in different ways. It gives us different understandings. The first is that why is the one who remains after another has gone? So, as a judge, he said, uh, why do you sue? What is is, is every one that is backing that remains after someone has gone? Alright. And then it has also been said that what is is the one who

00:05:57--> 00:06:53

ultimately receives what was once with the one who has gone, right, it was with them, but now they're gone. So the one who receives that property is who he is the lattice. All right. So, why this is an heir, the one who inherits the estate of the deceased, and only the person who remains can actually inherit. So for example, going back to the example of the Father, right, the man dies, let's say he leaves behind two sons, right? Let's say that he actually had three sons, right? However, one son died in his lifetime. Right? So the son who died in his lifetime, can that son inherit from him? No, he cannot, who can inherit from the Father, the children who survived the

00:06:53--> 00:07:53

Father, the children who outlived the Father, the children who remain alive after the Father has gone, right. So this is why the word word is doesn't just mean an heir or inheritor. Why does also means the one who survives another meaning the one who outlives another The one who continues to be continues to remain, while another has gone. So for example, in a drought, we ask Allah subhanaw taala that alarm and tyranny be summary woba? Sorry, would you're aware if I mean me, that Oh, Allah, allow me to benefit from my hearing and from my vision, and allow them to be my word is allow my, my vision and my hearing to be my ears. Now, what does that mean?

00:07:54--> 00:08:51

That means that allow my vision and my hearing to remain sound until I die, meaning Don't let them die before I do. Don't let them expire before I die. Right? Let them be perfectly sound until I depart from this world. So basically, what we're asking Allah subhanaw taala for here is that Oh Allah allow my faculties to remain sound until the end of my life. Because we know that in old age, you know, people begin to lose their hearing people begin to lose their vision, people begin to lose their, you know, memory and things like that basic functions, right? And that makes living extremely difficult. It makes you know, everything difficult for a person. So you're asking Allah subhanaw

00:08:51--> 00:09:16

taala here that he or Allah allow my faculties to remain sound, until I die. So this is the meaning of the word what is right, and air, meaning the one who ultimately receives what was with someone else, and also the one who remains while another has gone, right, the one who outlives and the one who survives others.

00:09:17--> 00:09:59

So when we're talking about Allah azza wa jal, that he is awareness, that he is the heir. What exactly does that mean? This means that first and foremost, Allah subhanaw taala is the ever lasting one, right that he is a burpee, adapt him, that he is the eternal one, the one who will remain when all have perished. Why Because Allah La Ilaha Illa Who? Allah Hey elka you, right? He is a Hey, he is the ever living and he is a human he is the independent of all an all depends

00:10:00--> 00:10:21

on him. So, awareness he will live on, while everyone else will die. All the creatures will die, they will perish one after another. And so we learned in sort of the right man verse number 26 and 27. Let's call lumen rla have

00:10:22--> 00:11:17

that all who are upon the earth are going to perish, they're going to die. Wherever Paul, what do you hold up because guru Jalali will ICANN and the face of your Lord shall remain? And your Lord is Lulu Jalali will ecomme We also learn in total puzzles, verse number 88, that kulu Shea in helicon illa wotja, that everything is going to perish except his face. Now notice here that in both of these verses, the face of Allah subhanaw taala has been mentioned specifically that it will remain. And the purpose of this is to draw our attention to the face of Allah that you see in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala tells us about how we should be seeking his face. Right meaning our intention,

00:11:17--> 00:12:08

our ultimate goal, when we're doing something is to seek the approval of Allah subhanaw taala that is what we should be seeking. Because everything is going to perish, right? If we want the approval of people, people are going to die. If we want fame, that fame is going to be irrelevant when the whole world comes to an end. Right? If we want money, all of that money is going to perish. So when we're striving, whether it is little things or big things, whatever it is that we're doing, ultimately, our concern should be what a birth doula a witch healer, to seek the face of Allah, that we want to see Allah subhanaw taala we want that Allah is pleased with us. So here we are reminded

00:12:08--> 00:12:59

in both of these pseudo pseudo Rockman and pseudo puzzles, that everything is going to perish. Everyone is going to perish. All those that we are seeking that we are running after are going to come to an end. Because this is the nature of the things of this world. This is the nature of, of the Hulk of the creation, that there was a time when it did not exist. It was brought into existence by Allah subhana wa tada and then there will be a time when they will cease to exist when they will come to an end. Right? So Allah is the only one who is everlasting. He is awareness he will remain while all others are going to die. They're going to come to an end. We learn in a hadith in Sahih

00:12:59--> 00:13:55

Bukhari that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will, will hold the earth and he will wrap the skies roll up the skies and he will hold them, you know, in his right. And then he will say Anil Malik, I am the king ain l aina. Maluku, where are the kings of the earth. So, everyone is going to finish an Allah, He is awareness, he is the one who will remain because he is the ever lasting one. So, everything is basically heading to words, its end, right? It's heading towards its decline. And everything and everyone is going to finish, you know, one day or another except for Allah subhanaw taala.

00:13:56--> 00:14:51

So, all the things of the world and all the people of the earth and, and all the things that we, you know, hold hold on to so dearly. They're they're declining day by day, they're heading towards there. And day by day. When it comes to our health. It's it's going to come to an end. Right? When it comes to our life, that is also going to come to an end. When it comes to the people that we love. They're also going to die when it comes to our own life. That is also going to come to an end. So kulu Manali hefa it is only Allah subhanaw taala who is awareness, who is the ultimate heir, meaning he will remain while all others will perish. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

awareness. This means that he is the ultimate owner of all things. Because who is the word is the word is is the one who is

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

inherits ownership of things, right? So those things belong to someone else that property belonged to someone else. But then when that someone else died, that property became the property of who have the air of the whiteness, right? Now, of course, whatever we have, we have it because Allah subhanaw taala gave it to us in the first place. But then remember that ultimately, everything is going to return to Allah. So he is the ultimate owner of all things, because all things are going to return to Him. What he lay Hill mostly to him is the destination. And the word must sleep come so many times in the Quran, right that to him is the return we are going to return to Allah because he is

00:15:52--> 00:16:48

the what is in sort of money am I number 40? We learn in new Nettie Sunil Alba woman I lay her, what Elena your German, that indeed, We are the ones who will inherit the earth. And we will also inherit whoever that is on the earth. So everything that's on the earth, whether it is gold or silver, or you know, crypto or whatever, right? Everything will ultimately be with who it will be with Allah or zoologia because we're all temporary owners, right? We're all temporary owners, if we've been given something ownership of a house ownership of a car ownership of a currency ownership of a company or share of a company, whatever kind of ownership we have, that is a temporary ownership, ultimately,

00:16:48--> 00:17:41

it is going to be with Allah, what Elena your German and to us, they will all be returned in sort of earlier mon IO one at a loss panatela says Willie lair he mi Ra. So some are worth he will have and to Allah belongs the heritage of the skies and the earth meaning the skies and the earth, you know, they will be inherited by Allah they belong to align the first place. So right now, any, you know, he has given us these things temporarily. Just like you know, when you when you lease a car, for example, right or when you when you rent a house and apartment, for example, you know that you're not the owner, it has just been given to you temporarily. And just like that, the body that we have,

00:17:41--> 00:18:14

the wealth that we have the power that we have, you know, the the health that we have, everything that we have has been entrusted with us. It has been lent to us it has been given to us temporarily. Right? And ultimately, it's going to be taken away from us and it's going to be with Allah or zoologia Allah subhanaw taala tells us in total headed I attend that one Allah calm alert on V Kofi Seville Illa well, Illa himI Rafa Sunnah wa T will.

00:18:15--> 00:19:05

That what is the matter with you? What is wrong with you, that you do not spend in the way of Allah. You don't spend for the religion of Allah, for the pleasure of Allah? What Why don't you do that? When the fact is that to Allah belongs the inheritance of the skies and the earth when he let him muraco sumati without any, ultimately, it's going to be taken away from you. You only have it for some time. So why don't you spend it in the right place so that you can reap eternal rewards? Do you think that what you have right now is going to be yours forever. That's not the case. It's going to be taken away from you. It's going to ultimately end up with Allah anyway. He has just lent it to

00:19:05--> 00:19:48

you right now so that you can earn some good deeds. You can you can invest in your assets. So why wouldn't you do that? Allah tells us and sort of medium 192 who may your kulu where Tina folder that the people who brag about you know their wealth and their power, etc. Allah subhanaw taala says that we will inherit whatever that he's saying the meaning whatever that he's bragging about, Allah subhanaw taala will will will be its ultimate heir and this person will come to us from that alone. So we are going to return to Allah and whatever we have, is going to be taken away from us.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

Thirdly, when Allah subhanaw taala is awareness, this means that he is the ultimate owner of all things and he gives temporary ownership

00:20:00--> 00:20:50

To whom He wills and he can also take it away whenever that he wills hinny. If we have something, it's because Allah has given it. If someone has something, it's because Allah has given it to them. But ultimately, Allah subhanaw taala is the one who gives and he can take it away whenever that he wants. So we learned in sort of puzzles I have 58. I mentioned this verse earlier about how people who were arrogant and boastful about the blessings that Allah had given them. I they lived very arrogantly what happened, they were removed from the earth, and their homes were not inhabited after them will come national worthy scene. And ultimately it is Allah, Who is the inheritor, we learn in

00:20:50--> 00:21:47

Sudoku are off I have 128 but musala his Salaam, he said to his people, the bunny is evil when they were, you know, in slavery in Egypt. He said to them, that it's there, he knew Billa he was spirou seek the help of Allah and be patient. And yes, you're going through a very difficult time that you have been enslaved and you are being tortured and, and you're living in so much difficulty. Yes, this is hard. But seek the help of Allah and be patient. Do not give up hope. Do not despair. Yes, you are powerless today and for their own is so powerful. But remember that in the auto Malila, the earth belongs to Allah, Yuri su herminia shadowman everybody, and he causes it to be inherited, by

00:21:47--> 00:21:54

whomever that he wants among his slaves, meaning he gives it to his slaves.

00:21:55--> 00:22:40

While there are people to remove the pain, and the ultimate good outcome is for those people who fear Allah. So if someone has any power, any prestige, any ownership, it's because Allah has given it to them and when he has given it to them, he can also take it away. So this means that we should not fear the creation when we see people in positions of power, right with with a whole lot of resources, we should not be afraid of them. Remember that Allah is the one who has given them their power. And these people are going to one day lose their power because Allah is awareness. In total MBI 105 we learn what are called Caterpillar visible remembered victory and auto by Yeti So hi

00:22:40--> 00:23:08

everybody is Sonny hoon. That the earth, the land is such that Allah will cause it to be inherited by who, by Allah, righteous servants. And this can be the land of this world and definitely the land of the hereafter meaning Jenna, that is for who it will be inherited by Allah's righteous slaves. Then we learn into the sharada verse 57

00:23:09--> 00:23:55

to 59, about how to fit our own. In it he had so much right, almost Pousada describes for 100 now human genetic, we're human, we brought them out meaning for our own and his people from among gardens and springs work who knows in and from all of their treasures from a common khadeem and from from all of their high noble statuses and high noble you know, places when which they used to live in which they used to sit Cavalli co what on earth now have any SRT and what happened, the the entire, you know, civilization of our own basically came to an end, right? And Allah subhanaw taala caused that to be inherited by the bunny is sobre el.

00:23:58--> 00:24:14

So, this is something that, you know, is repeated many times in the Quran about how there were people who were oppressed, who had nothing, but Allah subhanaw taala awareness, he allowed them he enabled them to inherit,

00:24:15--> 00:24:59

you know, the things of the world, and the good things of this world, and then eventually there were also taken away from them. So no matter what we have, remember that we have it for some time, because Allah is ultimately the lattice. And part of this is that Allah subhanaw taala also gives the inheritance of his book of the book that he has revealed, meaning he allows some people to be honored by having the book of Allah in their lives, that Allah subhanaw taala gives them the knowledge of the Book of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala gives them the ability to believe in the ability to understand it.

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

You have the ability to follow it, the ability to read it to recite it. So this is also a gift from Allah, right which Allah subhanaw taala gives to his slaves. So we've already inserted the Lafayette if 53 to 54, that when applied to attain our most alhuda what our ethnobotany is Surah Al Kitab. That we certainly gave to Musa guidance and we cause the Bani Israel to inherit the Scripture. And he Allah subhanaw taala gave them the Scripture. So they had the Scripture, the toad odds with them, generation after generation, instead of the fact that I have 32 we learn from Allah Snell Kitab alladhina Stephane, I mean everybody know, that then we caused the scripture to be inherited by

00:25:49--> 00:26:10

those slaves of ours whom we chose, he if someone has been given the Book of a law, right, whether it is that you have been given the ability to believe in it, the ability to recite it or memorize it or understand it or follow it, you need this is Allah subhanaw taala special favor.

00:26:12--> 00:26:16

And then when Allah subhanaw taala is awareness, this also means

00:26:17--> 00:27:11

that he is the one who will give inheritance of Paradise to whom he wants any, because awareness also means ultimate owner, right? So he is the one who owns the land of Paradise, and he can cause anyone among his servants to inherit a portion of it. So we learned in sort of me know in verse number 10, that Bula eeka Hummel where he saw that the believers they're the ones who are inheritors, they're truly the heirs what is it that they will inherit? Alina URI Sunil fit those in the next verse, those there are those who will inherit and for those not just Jenna, the highest level of Jenna houfy her Holly Dune and they will remain there in eternally. And we see this in in

00:27:11--> 00:27:31

many places in the Quran, where you know, the matter of of paradises is described in terms of inheritance. And that is because when it comes to inheritance, meaning the wealth that you inherit, this is any, something that you you you get,

00:27:32--> 00:27:46

you know, legally, you get easily and you get in such a way that you know, you don't need to feel any guilt about it. Right. So for example, if you inherit,

00:27:47--> 00:27:49

you know, a whole lot of money,

00:27:50--> 00:28:36

you know, $50,000 $20,000 how you know, if someone were to give that as a gift to you, like you know, even a relative were to give $50,000 as a gift to you, you would feel very burdened by that gift you would feel extremely guilty about it, you wouldn't want to accept it. But if the same amount or more comes as inheritance, you are 100% fine with taking it you don't hesitate taking because you know that it is your right. So the people agenda the reason why the word inheritance has been used. One of the benefits is that any the people of general will be will not be made to feel guilty

00:28:37--> 00:29:25

or or bad about the blessings that they're enjoying in Jenna. Because you see in this world you know if even when you go to the best restaurant and you're eating, you still have something at the back of your mind that I have to pay for this. Right I have to pay for the service I have to pay for this food. So that kind of ruins the the enjoyment. So when it when it comes to paradise, Allah subhanaw taala says Allah eco mulwaree soon alladhina uri Sunil for those whom via holiday, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained this, he said that there is none among you except that he has two destinations. And every single person has two destinations in the Hereafter, a destination in

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

Paradise and a destination in hellfire.

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

Every single person and think about yourself you have a home in Ghana waiting for you and you also have a home in hell. What are your other Billa so the Prophet sallallahu Urdu sort of explained that when a person dies and he enters the fire, right, that his home in the fire his destination in Hellfire is where he will be then well, what about his destination in paradise? What's going to happen to that so that is going to be

00:30:00--> 00:30:50

Then inherited by who? by the people of paradise. It's going to now be taken by the people of Paradise meaning the other people who will enter Jannah so he explained for Valley kokkola huhtala Oda eco mulwaree so that is what the verse will ecomo very soon means. We learn through the Zoomer verse number 74. Allah subhanaw taala describes the people of Jenna, that when they will enter gem that they will say Alhamdulillah Hilary's sada kawada All Praise to Allah who was truthful to us in His promise, what Allah Allah and he caused us to inherit the land net about what we mean agenda that he hates inertia and we can inhabit we can live in paradise wherever that we want for near my

00:30:50--> 00:30:53

digital economy lien how excellent is the reward of those who work

00:30:54--> 00:31:35

with earn in sorted through our rough I have 43 that the people of Paradise will be told what to do until Komal Jenna, who is to mu habima Quantum Time Alone, they will be told that this is Jenna, which you have been caused to inherit because of what you used to do. In sort of money is 63 till can Jana to let a new resume in your eba Tina man cannot appear that this is paradise which we will cause to be inherited by those servants of ours who are the pay, who are God fearing who have Taqwa, who live with the consciousness of Allah.

00:31:36--> 00:32:28

So, so these are some meanings of the name awareness. Now when Allah subhanaw taala is awareness, then what is our share? What are we supposed to do? Of course, we believe that Allah subhanaw taala is a lattice. But then we should also make sure that we do not attach our hearts to the things of this world. Because if we attach our hearts to the things of this world, then of course, we're going to be disappointed, of course, we're going to be sad. And the more attached we are to the things of the world, the greater our disappointment and sadness and frustration and anger will be. Now it's only natural that you know, we we get attached to the things of the world? Of course we do. We like

00:32:28--> 00:33:20

them, we, you know, we are surrounded by them, how can we not be attached to them, but it is necessary to be to be aware of this attachment and to consciously try to detach ourselves from the things of the world. And by that I don't mean that, you know, leave the things of the world? Well, your body is one of the things that our last panel Tata has given you in this world, right? How are you supposed to detach yourself from the body, that's not the meaning that you, you physically leave the things of the world, what is meant is that you consciously do those things, which will reduce your love for the things of this work. Because ultimately, sooner or later, the things that you

00:33:20--> 00:34:09

have, they are going to be taken away from you, they're going to go to a lattice, right? They're not going to stay with you forever. So what are some things that we can do to make sure that our hearts don't get overly attached to the things of this world? Well, one of the things is that we should consciously try to spend from them for the sake of Allah. Right? Give them out all of them, at least some of them at a regular basis for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So, you know, for example, when you get that cheesecake, right? And you're like, yes, I'm going to enjoy that. Make sure that you know, sometimes once in a while, you, you know, you give that to someone else to enjoy, right?

00:34:10--> 00:34:59

You when you buy something in groceries, many times you will see that right at the exit, there will be a food donation bin, right. So that that cereal box that you bought for yourself, right, as you're leaving, put it in the donation bin. Why because this will help you keep that love and attachment in in control. Because if it gets out of control, then we are the ones who will suffer. We are the ones who will who will be hurt. Of course, you know, feeling hurt because of loss feeling pain because of loss. This is something normal, it's not bad. It's not wrong to feel sad. Of course it's not. But you know if if we are very attached to the things of the world, then mail

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

panel try to protect us. But what happens is that loss that the pain caused by loss can become overwhelming and it can be, it can literally consume us. Right? So what happens then is that people begin to get upset with Allah. They are not able to accept the decree of Allah. Right, they begin to question Allah's wisdom. And they become, you know, consumed by their grief, so they're not able to do anything else. So it's necessary that we, you know, make sure that we consciously try to make sure that our hearts do not get attached to the things of the world. And one of the ways in which we can exercise that is by giving of what we love, and Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran,

00:35:57--> 00:36:09

Lenten Allah will be lahad that tune Fukushima to a boon, you can never attain the good reward. Until you spend out of what you love, you give

00:36:10--> 00:36:59

out of what you love, meaning the things that you especially love, you give from them, right you give some of them away, that is how you will attain the good reward. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is awareness, then remember that this means that he is the ultimate owner, right? He has only lent us these things for some time. So he is the ultimate owner, everything belongs to him, therefore we should accept his authority, we should accept his decree. And we should accept, you know, the distribution of, of the things of this world, right, the way that he has distributed them among people, he stopped being angry and stop being jealous. This doesn't mean that you don't strive

00:36:59--> 00:37:52

to have what will benefit you to seek what will benefit you. Of course you do. But don't live in anger and jealousy, and always envying the people who have been given war, or who have been given what you want, right? Because Allah is unwed, if he is the ultimate owner, and he gives and he transfers, and he takes away, this is his decision. Right? Our decision is to do the best that we can with the things that Allah subhanaw taala has given us. And then when Allah subhanaw taala is unwise, we should also take care of the things that he has entrusted us with. Because you see, ultimately these things, whatever that we have is going to be returned to who, to Allah zoologia.

00:37:53--> 00:38:36

Right. You know, when you are, for example, renting a house, even if you're leasing a car, you know that one day, you're going to return it to its owner, right? It's, it's not going to stay with you forever, you have to return it, how do you live in that house, he lives so carefully. Even if you want to hang some paintings on the wall, you don't do that. Why? Because you don't want to damage the walls, right? Because you know that the more damage you will cause to the walls, the more money you're gonna have to pay at the end, to make up for any for any damages. Right, you live so carefully, because you know, that it doesn't actually belong to you. And just like that, this earth

00:38:36--> 00:39:23

that Allah subhanaw taala has given us to live in, this is an Amana with us, and we have to take care of it, we have to live responsibly. Right? We cannot live in such a way that, you know, we're constantly causing damage to the earth. We're constantly you know, creating pollution. And, and, you know, yes, it's it's not possible to live in a way that you don't, you know, cause any change to the earth at all. Of course, you will, you know, your existence, you eat food, you you produce garbage, but, but be careful, right, and, and reduce the, the, you know, the negative impact that you're making on the earth. And there are some changes that, you know, you can easily make to your

00:39:23--> 00:39:59

lifestyle, to make sure that the damage that you're causing is at least minimized. If it's not completely eliminated, at least it can be minimized. Right? You know, for example, there can be some things that you can decide that you're not going to use, for example, when it comes to you know, plastic wrap, right, or plastic bags, you know, all the time if we're using them. We're creating so much garbage that's not going to go away for hundreds of years. So find alternatives and it is possible to find out

00:40:00--> 00:40:48

Are natives for every little thing, don't go on and pull out a, you know, a Ziploc bag, for example, in the kitchen. Right and then dispose of it all the time, because you're producing garbage that's not going to go away. Right? Likewise, when it comes to plastic straws, right, they can easily be replaced by what by nothing. Any, you don't need a straw all the time. Yes, in certain situations a straw is needed. And in that case, try to get reusable ones, try to use the paper ones, any, we have to realize that the things that Allah has given us, ultimately, they're going to be returned to Allah. So in what shape? in what form? Are we going to return them to Allah? Any isn't it so

00:40:48--> 00:41:27

embarrassing? The way that we're living? It is so irresponsible. That with what face? Are we going to say to Allah that yes, yeah, oh, yeah, we're done using them. These are now your guinea, what are we doing, we have to be responsible, and not just the earth, even our bodies, right? Our, you know, our abilities. Use your body responsibly, it doesn't mean that you become so careful that you don't do anything, but take care of this body, don't damage it on purpose, right, don't neglect it, take care of it.

00:41:28--> 00:41:54

So when everything is going to return to Allah, let us take care of the things that our last panel has entrusted us with. And then let us also spend out of what Allah subhanaw taala has given us, because we have these things temporarily, eventually, they are going to be taken away from us, but what we spend in the way of Allah, that is going to be saved for us forever.

00:41:55--> 00:42:44

You see what we have, Allah gave it to us, if you yourself, give it back to Allah, that, Allah, I do this for you, I do this for your sake, I'm giving this for your religion, for the causes that you love, you willingly give, you're investing it, right. And that in sha Allah will be given back to you in the best form. And in you know, in, in a much more increased form, like, like Allah subhanaw taala tells us that he will multiply it right, he will cause it to to double to increase to multiply often mobarak have often cathedra multiplied many times over. So

00:42:45--> 00:43:42

in a Hadees, we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and this Hadees is in Muslim, that the person says my wealth, my wealth, right, and this is something that we also say all the time, my phone, my computer, my house, my car, I and we're so proud of saying things like that, my stuff, my room, right? My this my that. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that whatever he has, right is only off of three kinds. And that is what he ate and used up. So what is truly yours, right is what you consumed. What you used up alavesa Abdullah or he wore, right that you you wear something, and then it can't be worn by someone else because you you wore it until it died. Right?

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

Or the third is what you give, right what you give in the way of Allah that is truly yours. Because you will find it.

00:43:55--> 00:44:46

And whatever is besides that, any anything else that you have in your life besides that, that's not really yours, you're going to leave it for who? For your heirs. Think about it. Think about all the things that you own. What you know, for example, every month you earn some money out of that money, whatever money you spend in groceries and you use up okay, it was yours. You bought clothes, and you wore those clothes until they died. Right? So yes, that was yours. And then you spend some of it in Sadako, right? That is yours. Everything else that's going in the savings account. Alright, that's going to become someone else's sooner or later. That's not really yours. Now, this doesn't mean that

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

we don't leave anything for our heirs. Of course we have to. But the point is that don't think that what you have sitting in your savings account or the property that you have in your name is always going to be yours. No, it's only

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

It has only been given to you for some time.

00:45:05--> 00:45:54

When Allah subhanaw taala is otherwise we should also live in servitude to Allah subhanaw taala. Right, because this life is a temporary journey. And this life is such that whatever we have, you know we have a temporarily. So live your life in servitude to Allah and don't make this world your ultimate focus. Don't, don't make your ultimate dream, to own a fancy house. Right? Your ultimate dream should not be to own a fancy car, that that should not be your goal, your real goal should be, should be of the hereafter. Right in the Hadees we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said confit dunya Kanaka Hurry, but our Guru subete that live in this world as if you're a

00:45:54--> 00:46:30

stranger or a passer by right now, of course, this doesn't mean that don't enjoy anything of this world and, and don't wear nice things, etc. No, that, of course is going to be a part of your life, but it should not be your ultimate concern. So that you're spending hours finding the best deal and hours, you know, just window shopping, and and finding the thing that will match the most that will look nicest. Right? And then so much of your money is going into purchasing it and then so much of your time and energy is going into maintaining it any Be careful.

00:46:32--> 00:47:20

Then when Allah subhanaw taala is awareness, then remember that when it comes to our wealth, yes, we're not going to own it forever. It's going to be we're going to leave it because we're going to die. Right? And then there is a lot that Allah subhanaw taala has legislated with regard to inheritance, that how should someone's property be distributed when they die? And this law of inheritance we should observe and we should respect it, we should not violate it. We don't have the right to distribute our wealth, however that we please. This there is a there's a lot that Allah subhanaw taala has given. We've heard in Surah conyza verse number 14, that when mejor Asli, Lucha

00:47:20--> 00:47:24

was Sula who were the other who do the who you the Hill who knows

00:47:25--> 00:47:47

that whoever disobeys alone is messenger. And this verse is mentioned after the verses of inheritance after the law of inheritance has been made clear. So then a warning is given that whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger beam does not follow the law of inheritance. And this person transgresses the limits that Allah has set, then such a person, Allah will put him in the fire,

00:47:48--> 00:48:35

Allah will cause this person to enter the fire. So remember, we cannot distribute our wealth as we please. Because some people like to do that. Right? They say that, no, I have a son and a daughter. And I want both of them to get equal shares. Right. But that's not what the law the law says. Likewise, some people think that, you know, women should not get anything. So many times, mothers will, you know, tell their daughters that please don't take anything, just leave it all to your brothers, right? Let your father's property go to your brothers, you don't take anything and that is contrary to the law of Allah. So we have to be very careful. We learned in a Hadees about how sarde

00:48:35--> 00:49:15

rhodiola and who he was very unwell, and he was afraid that he was going to die soon. So he asked the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam that allow me to distribute my wealth, however, that I want, any allow me that I I leave my wealth for the person that I want to leave it to. And the prophets of Allah who are listening refused. He refused. And the you know, Saudi Longhorn, who asked that, can I please at least give half of my wealth to whom ever that I want? The Prophet sallallahu already said and refused. He said a third, only a third and even a third is too much. So

00:49:17--> 00:49:59

in another narration, we learned that Sandra dilla Mourinho mentioned that, you know, my heirs are wealthy, my heirs are wealthy, they have enough You know, they're living good. They don't need my wealth they can do without it. I want my wealth, my property to go to someone else, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that, that only leave a third in your will for a non air because if you leave your family, your your heirs wealthy, then that is better. Any even if they have money, and, you know, you think that they're good, still what is rightfully

00:50:00--> 00:50:24

Theirs is rightfully theirs, you are not allowed to take it away from them, just because you want to give your your wealth to someone else. So we have to be careful about that. And then we should also strive to win the last panel thought is unwed if and he gives the inheritance of his book to whomsoever He wills, that we should strive to become the heirs of the book of Allah.

00:50:25--> 00:50:53

Remember that the prophets of Allah, they did not leave behind golden silver to be, you know, inherited by their family, the inheritance of the prophets, the estate that the prophets leave behind is knowledge, especially the knowledge of the Book of Allah. So in Hadith, we learned that whoever acquires the book of Allah, the knowledge of the Book of Allah, then such a person has in fact, acquired an abundant portion.

00:50:54--> 00:51:42

Any Think about it, we, we, we inherit many things, we, we receive many things, right from our employers, from our family members, from our parents, they give us gifts in their life, and people whose parents have passed away, you know, those people inherit from the property of their parents, but out of all the things that you can receive the most valuable share of all the things that you can receive is actually the book of Allah. Because that that share is coming to you from who from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he was given that from who from Allah azza wa jal, right? So be eager to have a share of religious knowledge to have a share of the book of Allah.

00:51:43--> 00:52:25

Right? We learned that a Buddha de la Martin who once he, you know, found some people, and he said that what are you guys doing when, when the state of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being distributed in the masjid? So those people became really eager and they rushed to the masjid, you know, to, to to get something because they thought that the estate of the Prophet sallallahu already sort of meant, you know, his belongings, the things that he left behind. So when they went to the masjid, they only found some people you know, talking about, you know, what is halal? What is haram? And some people were praying and some other people were reciting the Quran. So they went back

00:52:25--> 00:53:07

to a Buddha day long morning and they're like, What were you talking about? We didn't find any property being distributed over there. We just found some people praying and some people reciting Quran and some people talking about, you know, discussing what is halal what is forbidden. So, Buddha said, we have confirmed that Camille Rossum hamedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to you that exactly is the estate of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that exactly is what he left behind. So go and participate in that. Go and learn the recitation of the Quran, go and learn about the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So don't just be eager for the things of

00:53:07--> 00:53:10

this dunya also be eager for sacred knowledge.

00:53:12--> 00:53:54

And then when Allah subhanaw taala is awareness, we should also strive to be of the inheritor of the inheritors of Paradise, because remember that, that Allah will give that Aladdin will give that to whomsoever that he wants. So, how can we be of those people who, who get a home in Jannah? Because when we think about inheritance, right, typically, we think about the house that you know, the deceased left behind, right? So how can we get a home in Jannah? First of all, we see that you know, how these that whoever performs

00:53:55--> 00:54:15

12 Records and this is the voluntary record the Sunnah prayers, basically, every day, and whoever persists in performing them every day, then Allah will build for him a house in Jannah. And how are these 12 for before lunch, and then two after

00:54:17--> 00:54:45

and then two after modem and two after a sharp and two before 5g. So 12 record voluntary prayer every day, whoever persists on it, then Allah who will build for this person a house in general, then visit someone purely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala had these wieder that whoever visits the sick or visits his brother in law, a caller calls out that may you have goodness

00:54:47--> 00:54:53

and may your livelihood May your livelihood be good, and may you dwell in a home in Jannah

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

also build a Masjid in Hades we learn that whoever builds a Masjid for the sake

00:55:00--> 00:55:46

Allah, even if it is as small as a sparrow's nest, any Sparrow's nest and the specific bird that the Prophet salallahu already mentioned, this bird actually makes its nest on the ground. It doesn't even make it on the tree. It makes it on the ground. Right? And it is so humble. It is so simple. And it doesn't even have of course a nest does not even have a roof. Right? So whoever makes a Masjid, for the sake of Allah, even if it is a very humbled small place of prayer, right then Allah will build for him he house in Jannah recite total airfloss in Hades we learned that whoever recites sort of cool will level ahead 10 times, Allah will build for him a house in Jannah. And remodel de

00:55:46--> 00:56:01

la Martin who said that this way we will get many houses in gender. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah who fell asleep, that Allah subhanaw taala has even more he, there's no shortage of, of things with Allah.

00:56:03--> 00:56:42

And then also feed people in Hades we learned that in Jannah, there are rooms, the outside of which can be seen from inside and the inside, can be seen from outside, you know, like like glass windows. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that these are prepared for those who speak nicely for those people who speak gently right? For those who give food to others, and those who, who, who fast frequently, and who pray during the night when people are asleep in another nourish.

00:56:44--> 00:57:43

These houses have been prepared for who lemon automaton for those who give food to others. what I've just said lamp who spread the center will fall leveleleven nursing em and who prays in the night when people are sleeping. So this is something that that the reward of which is house in Jana, and then in difficult times, be patient and praise Allah subhanaw taala thank Allah subhanaw taala in a hadith we learn about how When, when, when, when a person's baby dies, right? When a Muslims baby dies, and Allah subhanaw taala asks his angels that did you take away the child of my servant? Any Did you cause my servants baby to die? And did you take the soul away? And the angel say yes. And

00:57:43--> 00:58:35

Allah subhanaw taala asks them that did you take away the fruit of his heart? Any a baby is so dear to to the parents. Right? So so most panatela asks that, did you take away the fruit of his heart? And the angel say yes, Allah tada asks them, What did my servants say? What was his response and alone when he knows? Right But unless pantherella asks anyway, because when something is mentioned, that means it has been given a, you know, a whole lot of importance. So, the angels reply, that your servant praised you, right? And said, in a lazy way, nearly here on your own, right. So Allah subhanaw taala says, build for him a house in Jannah, build for my servant a house in Jannah and

00:58:35--> 00:58:52

call it beta around the house of praise, meaning those who praise of law, even in the most difficult times, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep us in his alfia in his well being, but when you know, disaster strikes,

00:58:53--> 00:59:44

you know, whether it is some bad news or some, you know, some loss, any kind of difficulty, the moment it strikes us, say Alhamdulillah that that should be the first word that comes out of your Alhamdulillah All Praise to Allah. This happened by Allah's decree, his knowledge, his wisdom, he allowed it to happen. He does not make a mistake. Allah does not forget liability. Robbie, will I answer? Right? So there is there is good in this I trust his decision. He is perfect Alhamdulillah and so in LA LA here we're in LA urology room and call upon Allah azza wa jal. And then another thing we can do is, remember a lot when entering the market, or even when you go for groceries, for

00:59:44--> 00:59:45


00:59:46--> 00:59:59

In Hades, we learned that whoever enters the market, right and then he says, La Ilaha Illa meaning at the time of entering the market, he says let you know in the love of the hula sharika the whole will cola will hand your heat

01:00:00--> 01:00:36

What you need, or how you lay your mood before they will hire? What are their condition in Korea, and in one version via the localu, who who are luckily she encoded, then among the rewards and the forgiveness of sins. Another benefit is that Allah will build for him a house in Jannah. Because you see, when we're going to the market, we're being so greedy for the things of the world, we're so excited, get this, get that, you know, find this find that. And at that time, you remember the greatness of Allah. Right. And you remember that all good is in Allah's hand, any, this is something special.

01:00:37--> 01:01:03

Another thing we can do is that when there is a soft when there is a rule, and there's a gap in the rule, go fill that gap. Of course, this is when, you know, physical distancing is not required. But when you see a gap, then fill that gap because it had these we learned that whoever fills a full job, right, meaning a gap in the software, that Allah will build for him a house in Jannah.

01:01:04--> 01:01:48

And we might think that, Oh, this is something it's not that big of a deal. But it actually is, it really is. Because a lot of times what happens is that people keep waiting for others, that you go fill the gap, somebody else will fill the gap. Right? And then when you fill the gap, there's always that fear that what if the people you know, on either side get annoyed? What if they get upset with me? What if they yell at me? What if they don't want me to stand there? So there's, there's that fear, but you'll fill that gap because the the gap, you know, the rules should be made properly. So you do that for the sake of Allah and look at the reward, and then also leave an argument for the

01:01:48--> 01:02:14

sake of Allah. Right? Any Don't, don't be stubborn in your argument, even when you know that you are right, and the other is rock even then why stop arguing because if you continue to argue, it's it's going to bring about more harm, then the good You think you can bring by proving to the other that you are right.

01:02:16--> 01:02:35

I will repeat that, that when you continue to argue when you know you are right, you cause damage, and that damage is far greater than the benefit you could bring by proving to the other that you are right.

01:02:36--> 01:03:27

So in a heaviness, we learn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I guarantee a house in the surroundings of paradise for a person who avoids arguing, right, who stops and argue with thought Academy rock who left an argument, right? Even though he knew he was right. But he didn't want to argue. Right? And he and he did not become stubborn in that argument. Because this kind of argument, it doesn't bring much benefit. It only damages the relationship. It's it causes a person to to increase in their ego in their arrogance, right and in in trying to prove yourself right sometimes you become angry, you become annoyed and you say things which are hurtful, and you cause damage,

01:03:28--> 01:03:38

right. So, so no, so the person who gives up such arguments, right? Then he will get a house in the surroundings of paradise.

01:03:40--> 01:04:20

And then this behat glorifying Allah subhanaw taala but Buddha in the long run, reported that once he was sowing a plant, right and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked him to do that, overnight, what are you doing? Right? And he said that I am planting a plant for me, right? I'm sowing this for myself. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, shall I not tell you of a plant that is better than this meeting? What you're doing is good. But Should I tell you about a plant that is even better than this? And he said of course, yellow suit Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Subhan Allah, wa Al Hamdulillah What are either illallah wa Allahu

01:04:20--> 01:04:20


01:04:22--> 01:04:26

For each one, a tree will be planted for you in Jenna.

01:04:27--> 01:04:42

Any This is what you will get in Jana. So don't you want to inherit all of that property? So increase in your ASB hat and the treasures of Jenna is La hawla wala quwata illa Allah, this is how you get Truly Rich

01:04:43--> 01:05:00

will last a panel Tara grant assaulted last section very quickly, how can we call upon Allah subhanaw taala by this name, first of all, mentioned this name awareness in your doors, right because one of the ways in which we ask Allah

01:05:00--> 01:05:15

panel tada is, you know, as a last panel Tata says wilberto era here was sila, right, that seek was sila meaning the means of closeness to him. So when you're making garowe, don't just express what you want.

01:05:17--> 01:05:18

In addition to that,

01:05:19--> 01:05:24

in your Dora mentioned those things which will cause you the right to be accepted,

01:05:26--> 01:06:14

you know, faster, right, that will make your Dora even more honorable in the sight of Allah. And one of those things that we that that we can do is, or, or one of the ways in which we can adopt correct vasila is that we mentioned the names of Allah when we're making doll. So mentioned the name awareness when you're making golf. And this is something that the Korea relay is surrounded, right? So in total ambia 89, we learned that he said, a lot of bilateral knee farther than what and the higher on what he seen that the Arab Do not leave me alone. And you are the best of those who inherit meaning you are the ultimate owner. Right? And you're the one who gives and who takes and

01:06:14--> 01:07:03

who prevents and who bestows You are the word is, I am going to perish soon. You can give me what I want. And he asked Allah subhana wa tada that era, grant me a child and we learn in the next verse first the Jebin Allah who will will heaven Allah who you're here that we responded to him and we gave him we gifted him yeah here right so yeah, like his son and of course his son you need the karate he said I'm son and also a prophet of Allah. So use this name in your eyes when you want something. Right? And then ask Allah subhanaw taala to make you have those who inherit Jana Ibrahim, it is salami Dora this has mentioned sort of the Sherlock verse 83 to 85 he said Do not be heavily

01:07:03--> 01:07:50

hoekman what will happen he was slightly hain What do I need? Listen a slider can fill it in with your I'll name it What was that engine net in the room. So we can also say this, that Oh my Lord, grant me authority and hokum is also understood as not just authority, but judgment. Right? So grab me authority and join me with the righteous and grant me a reputation of honor among later generations, and place me among the inheritors of the garden of pleasure, make me among the heirs of jannetty Noreen would only mean what I thought he generated there him and then ask Allah subhanaw taala awareness to allow you to benefit from your body until you die, that let your body your your

01:07:50--> 01:08:38

abilities your faculties they remain sound until the end of your life. And this is from the sooner the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm used to pray Allah will materially be summary we're both sorry, that Oh Allah allow me to benefit from my hearing and from my vision, which I lwml Where is a mini and make them my errors meaning caused them to outlive me and something Yanni caused them to be sound and intact until I die, that they don't finish before me, I finished before them, I die before them. And and then the doll continues when suddenly Allah maniago rimoni will hold them in who be 30 where you're asking Allah subhanaw taala to add and defend you against those who who oppress you.

01:08:39--> 01:08:51

May Allah subhanaw taala protect us all. inshallah we will conclude over here so panicle lahoma will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta esto Furukawa Tobu Lake wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
