He was Sahibi he was a limited Houma, Sleeman Kathira and that all praise due to Allah and His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companions and his followers until the day of judgment. I bear witness that Allah is
the only one worthy of worship and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his last and final messenger.
One of the sources that are many Muslims Alhamdulillah care to recite and Friday Surah Tilka.
And there is a Hadith reported recommending Muslim to read and to recite Surah Al Kahf on the night of Friday, which is Thursday night or the day of Friday. And there is debate over the authenticity of it but it is widely accepted and recommended by many of the Muslim scholars. And it's a very well known Surah to many of us. And one other thing that is important for us whenever there is something we've been asked to read or to recite, often to reflect upon them. And today I want to just pick one thing in this surah which is the don'ts in the sewer don'ts la Sawtell. Caf when Allah subhanaw taala says do not or when this verse there is something about do not do that or do not do this.
You'll find one of the the basically we'll talk about there are nine of them. So the first one you will see when Allah Subhana Allah Allah said fella to Maddie fee him in Mira Hara
Allah subhanho data said after he telling us how they will argue over how many
persons were in the cat in the cave, when they were 4567 Whatever the numbers, you know, and all this debate 4567 Okay, and the eighth is their dog's which number is correct Allah subhanaw taala told the prophet Muhammad SAW Salam. So, O Muhammad, my Lord is most knowing of their number. None knows them except a few. So do not argue about them. Do not argue about them with an except with an obvious argument Illa Mira Anwar Hara except with an obvious obvious it's not about translation, but also the word Demeter on via it's an obvious argument. And also a nice argument in viral coffee, and Latif Alinea, Lisa V Hilda, that you're not aggressive, you're not mean. So that's what Elmyra Avahi
means Allah subhanaw taala here telling Muhammad salallahu Salam do not argue about this. And this is something that very interesting that because sometimes we argue over things, and we have really no facts, or we or don't have facts about it. Nobody knows how many of them exactly are there. So sometimes we get engage in argument over things that we have no knowledge of, we have no facts to back up our claim, and we should not be engaged in such arguments. Also, this shows you that no need for arguing over something that is not beneficial. Yanni, what will make a difference of the Will five or six, six or eight. What will be any difference to us, the point of the story is still there.
Sometimes we get distracted into argument that is not beneficial at all. And Allah subhanaw taala the first thing he is saying to us don't and even he addressed Mohamed salah, but it's all of us. Even this is about this particular story, but it can apply to everything in our life that we need to learn to avoid so many of these arguments, which is waste our time waste our energy and drain us especially in a time of social media and people engage on back and forth an argument arguing over you know matters many times are not beneficial.
And agenda be shackled. ameth Moon Phil Quran was sunnah. Generally speaking, arguing is something criticized something negative, something not been praised in the Quran and the Sunnah.
Only arguing are recommended if it is done by right methodology with the right intention and not only that, what kind of till masala Raja intercolonial was see Thus I have enough cash went to Coronavirus hey I want to call masala Raja had and had them as the man has the NIA hola sila to confirm of Senate mother I tell about. So no matter whom Allah said that three things that has to be with the right way of arguing. So I argue with knowledge not with, you know, desires or ignorance with the right intention not to just to show off not to prove you're wrong not to pick on you not to you know, prove my family or my group or whatever, my my my canvas is correct. And also going to
miss a third one, that there is a greater benefit. Because so many times even if your intention is good, you're gonna learn the knowledge, even if you argue with evidence and stuff like that, but it's a waste of time.
As no no benefit, there is much more important things to talk about. Here. So the these three conditions, if you look at it, it will eliminate so many of our arguments. And I believe that this is also great advice for us at home. So many times we engage in argument, you know, it is such it's a such a I know in certain age, children love to argue, love to for the sake of argue why and what is this? What is that. So make sure that if you ever have to go into that argue with them, to teach them first of all argue is not a good thing.
And that's that make sure that we start from home from early age. You know, debate has its own rules and situations and man and limited time, but he cannot transfer our life to be all debating one another at all. And we argue with one another all the time. And if I have to engage in such argument, make sure that you rise your words not your voice.
Because remember, what truly makes effects on the ground is the rain not the thunder
so make sure that you always elevate your argument you know, you can say whatever you mean but not in a mean way.
You can always make your point without you know disrespecting the others.
Number two, which is comes right after it. What are the stiff defeat he mean whom I had an Aveda and Allah Subhana Allah next set and do not and that's the second one choir about them. Among the basically from any one of them, and you don't ask about the numbers or the knowledge of the people of El Cap the story of al Qaeda from them, don't seek knowledge from them. Why? Because they have no knowledge. And that's also an important lessons for us in our life.
kind of remember that the real Allah Adam jervois Stifter in Jerusalem, Allah Allah said, that's a proof that you cannot ask and seek fatwa from someone who is ignorant, or someone who has no knowledge.
It's like, you know, you can't do that. And we know that but when it comes to the legend, when it comes to unfortunately, many areas of our life, we don't practice what we know. We go ask and seek advice and guidance from people who have no clue we'll be talking about. Also don't ever seek an advisor or an aura or a judgment or an answer from someone you know that they are Bice, that they are filled with hate the odd filled with Jemison. Don't ever seek guidance from someone who follow their desires because they're not gonna guide you.
And don't seek any knowledge from them.
The third one, what are takoda Nisha in effect on Daddy kehadiran Illa ye sha Allah, do not say and never say of anything. Indeed I will do that tomorrow. Except when adding if Allah Who else? So you're not allowed. You don't say I will do this tomorrow. Without saying in sha Allah. In sha Allah is something to be said about the future, not the past. Because if Allah Who else you cannot say in sha Allah, my name is Walid Colosse. My name is really a long time ago. It makes no sense. You have to say inshallah about something in the future. It's inshallah it's Friday. It's already Friday, unless you live in. I don't know everybody's Friday house, but it's already done. So you can you can
say that and a lot of people do it but they don't pay attention to it. But the point is, from Allah telling us this, what's the point?
The point is that you connect your heart with Allah subhanaw taala in every matter of your life, no matter how sure you are, no matter how confident you are, no matter how many precautions you took, you still say insha Allah
you know, the story of Jehovah is a character. He has gone to the market have his donkey with him tiding the holding the rope and went to the dog to the O in his way his friend, son, what are you going isn't going to sell my donkey? I'm gonna sell them and make some money today. They said St. Shala is it why the market there? Everybody needs a donkey and I have it. You know, in my hand.
He went and he got distracted by somebody selling something there. He's planning to sell his donkey get that new thing that you saw. Somebody came and untied the donkey, put it on a tree and stood hanging on a tree in a branch of a tree and took the dog. So he came back after. After he got his he looked for his donkey everywhere. He couldn't find it has the rope around his neck and so sad his heads down, as we say his tails between his legs. And his friends told him Hey, what happened? Did you sell it? He said no. He said what happened? You said you're gonna sell it. He said yeah, it was stolen in sha Allah.
Masha Allah. Now he's saying a shot doesn't work. You know, it's about the future. The point is, no matter how confident you are about what you think you have, you should always learn to say Insha Allah, that's the ways how have the MBM pasetta didone in sha Allah who saw build on what are asked you the camera that's Musa alayhis salam is now in Carla Yeah, but if Alma tomorrow Saturday Dooney insha Allah who you know Sabreen that use of Allah His Sudan, but the Hello Miss Salah in sha Allah. Am you Nene? You know, look at sada Allah rasool Allah who wrote here will help lead Harun al Masjid Al haram in sha Allah in and will head up in our OSA come alive. So, he you see many verses upon
telling us that this is how the prophets, the messengers, this the etiquette that we should be aware of, and we can get used to it. One of the benefits of this, Yanni saying inshallah it will prevent you from any form of lying because let's say I'm going to do this and Shalini didn't do it. Whatever happened that distracted or prevented you from it, it's became not a lie, because you're all said, insha Allah, that's why when you make an oath, what Allah He I will do this inshallah and he didn't do it, you don't need to pay penalty, because you have added in sha Allah to it.
Another the fourth one, when Allah subhanaw taala said, what are tideway Naka and whom to reduce, to reduce the net inherited dunya Allah Subhana Allah Allah said to Muhammad wa salam and to all of us, talking about the importance of being surrounding yourself with a good company.
And good company, start with your spouse,
your children, your family, your community,
to the friends and the circle goes bigger and bigger, even outside, like stick with people who are good.
Be ihraam Surround yourself with people who are good people.
And Allah subhanaw taala said to Mohamed Salah and let not your eyes pass beyond them
desiring the adornments of the worldly life
that's a very good advice for all of us is to not only be with the good people, but we don't look to other than them. We don't desire even that desire in the heart should not be there. We should find it. Wallah. And sometimes I know it is hard somebody told me she had wala it's hard to deal with some of the brothers. You know what but they are your brothers.
Don't let the ship on drag you by looking for because you didn't know where you end.
And we will always this Dutch Summer Wasp in Aleppo. There's patients there is struggle
in it. And also the last one to bless you with a good family good children don't just look outside focus because when you look far away, you never appreciate what you have next to you.
Also this verse saying any Don't be seeking the adornment of this dunya Don't be making it the goal the goal is not the luxury of this life. The goal is to survive this life is to make sure that you go to gender.
Then Allah subhanaw taala said, while I totally am an alpha now felner caribou and the carina with tubba the fifth daunt and do not obey one whose hearts we have made heedless of our
remembrance and who follows His desire is one the dangerous thing you do in your life you follow those who follow their desires and what many of them we have a
lot of people follow especially online especially, you know on life taking role models who are just people following their desires they have no rule of halal and haram didn't follow what is right and what's wrong they follow what is their heart, you know, telling them I thought I eat them and it definitely ILAHA
those who have taken their desires as their god, what can Umbro Florida, any motor federal,
VA, those people who are allowed to describe to follow their desires, they are all over the place, they cannot concentrate how I noticed this very clear those who follow the desires cannot build anything cannot accomplish anything.
Those who have no you know such you know, ability to control themselves have a self discipline because following desire is a sign of no self discipline
cannot accomplish much in life. I ask Allah Subhana Allah and yeah, I mean, I know you're coming and how are we know? Yeah, I mean, we assume Salallahu salam ala Nabina Muhammad Al.
hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Nabi about the Hobart the fifth the sixth one Allah subhanaw taala said about the story of a hodder on Musa acid ferratas elmia and che inhaca Or did recommend who the Quran he said to Musa Aloha that do not ask me about anything until I make to you or I will give you information about it first. You know, sometimes we rush to ask too many questions. But if we became patient a lot, we urge you to judge wants to question people's What do you need to do just hold on wait on things will be clear, especially when you deal with people have knowledge with people of your expertise with the leaders unit just wait until things clear up. You don't need to judge people
quickly and make these accusations in the form of questions. And
here, this verse cannot be used by some as some people used it to say you would the leaders or the shoe or the whatever kind of leadership you have. It means that you have no opinion you have no objections, you have no way to say to ask questions. That's not the point from the Vert verse. Let the commercial ethical commitment muscle that's not the point. The point is, just don't be disrespectful. Just don't be hasty. That's the point of the verse. Also there is another point we need to learn laser cool. l LM your club besar in about the NASA London Kool Aid and available MBSR Assad others say Assad was seen a wide economic Messiah no hoorah but the company very so Allah will
show up what oh and more I lemma will share your current role Masada we do matters and sometimes we think that the only way to learn to acquire knowledge by asking questions sometimes that you need to do to be quiet. Just listen.
It's not always about the asking questions. Number seven lot to clean up man a seat? Yes sir. Do not blame me for what I forgot.
How we need to learn how to forgive one another how to have excuses for one another. If you have not begun to be held accountable for what you forgot in front of Allah, what about you? Think about all those excuses for your brothers before you jump the gun.
Seminar number eight, what October hit the Neiman embryo PSA. And do not cover me in my matters with difficulty and another word, do not overburden me. And that's very true. There is people man when you deal with them, the overburden you it became such a heavy thing to deal with them. Like every time you know, it became like a struggle just to spend some times with them. Don't have this kind of quality. Don't be so heavy.
You know be as someone who is you know when you are with someone, you're not a burden on the person. As a matter of fact, you're the opposite. Don't ask people too much. Don't put too much Canada on the others. That's not a good quality and Allah smart Allah said, teaching us through that story not to be like that.
Farah to sa heavy. Don't be my friend. Don't be in my company. You know what? That's a great lesson. Sometimes you need to move on.
Sometimes you just say Santa Monica. You this way and I'm that
sometimes you have to make that decision in your life. And it became so hard to make that decision if you have to make it with someone who is near to you close to you. On it tell us some people who have made the decision and maybe they left their spouses.
And it was the right decision. Don't regret it. Maybe that you did it based on right decision, you know what move on in your life. I want to say to many people that they have broken a partnership and business. You know what, don't regret it. If that was the right decision, move on. Maybe you have broken a friendship with someone, you know what, don't don't overburden us, because sometimes that's the right course of action. I need to move on, I need to leave this person behind me and keep going. If life moves on, we need to learn how to move on to
you know, you will evolve past certain people. So let yourself grow and pass those people and grow. And that's a very important lessons for us to learn. Sometimes we keep hanging on to some people that they keep dragging us down, pulling us down you know what, just let it go.
I'm not encouraging to cut ties with people now, but I'm encouraging that you full take full responsibility of your life and so your surrounding fell into so heavily and with respect, you have excused maybe we just not the best match. You know, just doesn't work. Don't make a fight don't like ruin his life here on your life. Just move on. These are something that I do believe like, whenever we reflect in the Quran, you will see how much the Quran can relate to our daily life and our life and can be a guidance for us in so many areas in our life. I asked Allah subhanho data and you Jamil in Abuja, muted a HELOC that he owes a beautiful us with the best of manners and bless us and
forgive our sins ALLAH forgive all our sins, forgive our sins and forgive the sins of our parents or family members, our brothers and sisters,
