connect yourself with those who pray to their Lord morning and evening seeking his approval and do not let your eyes turn away from them out of desires for the attractions of this worldly life. Do not yield to those whose hearts we have made heedless of our core and those who follow their own low desires, those whose ways are unbridled.
Say now the truth has come from your Lord lead those who wish to believe in it do so and let those who wish to reject it do so. We have prepared a fire for the wrongdoers that will envelop them from all sides. If they call for relief they will be relieved with water like molten metal scalding their faces. What a terrible drink. What a painful resting place.
Okay Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah.
The first verse that he recited, we already talked about it last time, but I said there is certain lessons we can learn from the verse. The first one, that he read the translation, which is also good enough Second Lady in Andrew naraba whom bilva Dottie when she Yeah, Nia Mohammed keep yourself patiently with those who call upon the Lord in that
morning and in the night seeking his face and he seeking the reward from em from a loss panna cotta alone and do not obey to not be with those who are heedless and those who don't mention a loss panna cotta those who follow their desires I know that what happened when you don't mention a lot a lot your desire took over you and
we'll come to certain lessons that we can learn from this
verses and then on Lost Planet Allah said well couldn't help never become say the truth from your Lord. Give me a second Let me pull this up.
First lessons from the first verse and this is a common theme that you will see or the common issue that repeated and so a lot alkaff which is ordering us to be in the company of good people.
So here to Las panatela ordering Mohammed Salim to be with those who mentioned on last planet Donna a lot and so many verses in the Quran the same order came for instance a las panatela said yeah, you had lady Ana de la Hakuna Masada tiene and sort of the turbo 119 he said, Oh, who you believe fear Allah and be with that.
truthful one aside there been so many people and
interpreted this verse V with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam his companions and follow them. And we know the very famous headed headed Musashi with the process of them said in the methodology society here with delicious soup, Kamath le Hamad miski, where Kia and Hadid it's like being in the company of a person who sell perfume or a someone who has the
blacksmith, the pert The one who sells perfume, either he gives you some perfume as a gift, or you smell something good while you're around him. But the one who's blacksmith, either he will burn your clothes or you will get the bad smell and the you know,
he will make your claws sting. And in the bee sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he did the first Buhari and the next habit in Medina vetoed and others the prophets of Salaam said and model Ana de haut de la cama Johan it, you will be in the same lifestyle of your friends. So be careful who you be friend with. You will have the same lifestyle studies shows people who care to lose weight, they affect the their friends so they start thinking about losing weight, who will start exercising their company or their friends start exercising. Someone starts smoking her friend starts interest in smoking. That's how it is yeah. It's amazing how the impact of the friends on each other it's it's
more powerful than
than anything that you can think of.
manly community number one said something very interesting, he said lan tenco la Jara, Toma and abrar Hiraman anta Kunal halwa mala Shara, he said, it's better to be with a good friend, you know, doing hard work and labor like cutting rocks, then eating dessert and sweets with bad people.
He said our four before that, over the bad one.
And a Buddha one set a Sahibzada kioto minute way
to have a good friend better than to be by yourself.
Well wish the two Hiraman saw him.
And to be by yourself is better than to be with someone who's bad in the company if someone is bad, or a bad friend. So let's say this again. You know, good friend is better than being by yourself. But being by yourself is better than being with someone who is backed. That's how I would
put it. Where I live now. We thought it once said what are the jelly Jaco Yo, don't be a friend of someone who's ignorant. Be aware of him stay away from him for come enjoy heading out of there. halimun Hina elka so many ignorant people have caused so much problems to smart people when they met each other? Your class will not or will not either man who? Masha who that the person will be compared to those who hang out with.
So if you you will be compared like for example, someone today want to apply for a job or to propose to your daughter, one of the first thing you're going to ask, okay, who do you hang out with? Who do you walk Who's your friends are? Because you get a lot to know about the person by knowing who he
hang out with and he who's his friend are and by the way, having a good company being a company of good people is not an option. It's an order from Allah sorbetto sila hinjewadi by mainman doaba is not something yet okay, it's my choice I mean that with good friend or bad friends? No. It's an order from a lot to be with the good people. How do we know to order from Allah? How do we know it's
because in Abuja Salam was ordered to be in the company of good people. So if Mohammed's are Salaam, its order upon him to have a good friend and not to be staying and hanging out with bad people. So you from any you more prior to adhere to that. What's the benefit of having good company what appeared to have a good friends? Number one, they helped me to do the right thing. So it's, it's a lot of time. Let's go to the masters. You know, hey, tomorrow's Monday, let's fast. Hey, let's read for an let's I have an opportunity for you to give sadaqa I can help you to do this. So they helped me to do good deeds. Also, good friends, they help you in calamity.
Do you know the story of a guy who was in a hole and basically his doctor passed by him? And the doctor said How you doing? He said, I'm good. But you know, I'm in this hall. He said, is your heart rate Okay, can you check? You know, basically your heart rate and you find your dizzy? No, I'm not. Okay, sweating. Now how's your pauses?
sweating now, you have chest pain, no. So you'll find some article.
Then after that, you know, his shift pass by the man pass by. And he said when he said, What are you doing? He said, I have fallen this hole. Then he said, Did you pray Asia? He said, Yeah, I prayed. Did you make your eyes I make my dogs make sure that Sarah can do it like dama because you know what's gonna happen in this place? Yes, I did all the clips that I want to have a good night and then he left.
But when his friends passed by, before he said anything, his friend jumped in the hall with him
to help him out. So these are friends, the friends are ready to help you whenever you have problems in your life, in the Masada or in the shed in the time of hardship and calamity, true friends will be standing before you. There is a great scholar by the name of Mohammed bin serene, and he was a very good friend of another great scholar, his name Sherpa. One of the interesting things funny things about their life, and sure about Kaaba Dana Mohammed dibny, serene, Mohammed even Siri in taba in a short bah bah bah bah
Sherif was in debt so it'd been city into cologne to pay sure bus debt so sure but heard about him in city being in debt but he doesn't know what to use this money for So sure, but managed to get ourselves up money and he paid even citizens debt. So they paid each other's debt without realizing that they are the one who paid paid each other's debt until later on.
The costs are minimal equality Mr. Potter in humble total interest and debt the home of Ohio or maybe Kathy Oldfield in wasa Haven, we're in Dubois hidden like a theory any from these friends that you have. Only maybe one person will be that quality that is really will stand beside you in all troubles in life. You might think that you have 100 friends, but then in reality, you maybe have one or two. Also, one of the thing about good friends, the true good friends, they shouldn't be like what been said assadi man sadhak lemons of duck
assadi man sadhaka Your friend is the one who tell you the truth. Not when you say something is that Oh, that's the truth.
He is truthfully with you.
So if he sees something wrong, he will tell you it's like your mirror kalamera
you see your reflection and he tell you exactly the way it is. That's why in Ibiza, salaam Kenya, VBAC Rama Rama de cada Houma Summerall bustle
he said Abu Bakar are my eyes and my ears.
Basically the season the year everything and they will tell me if there's anything right or wrong. They just said the way they feel it is one of the benefits of having good friends. You get a lot of drama out of them, and abuse sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have made a lot of there are too many of his friends and his friends. The obtain success because of that interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like when he prayed to Anna for Anna's that he lived long live had a lot of money a lot of big family he prayed for bass he prayed for Maui but for many companions
as for bad can be as harmless
they encourage you to disobey Allah. There are bad role model any you say or you know when you make sense a lot test you with this and that but you see some bad friends there live it looks like for you everything goes smooth. You know they have this and that the bad they are very basically bad role model. They will if they don't encourage you to do the sin they will not encourage you to do the good. The least no bad friends who drinks and and don't care for the salon and all the stuff. He will tell you tell your children Hey, by the way it's solid time Don't forget to pray. I don't pray but you should pray. You truly don't do that. Okay? That's why Allah Subhana Allah warned us from
bad friends and the prophets of Salaam did so as well. That's when the bees are Salam said glad to saw him in la mina while I called Tamika a lotta pee, yeah a little beta comfy jiofi Chiquita terminologically, healthy quarter beta cold turkey. The process of them said do not have friend except believer, a believer and do not some do not let one eat your food unless he is someone of righteousness. It doesn't mean that you cannot have friends with non Muslim or you cannot have friends with bad Muslims.
Or, you know, we have general circle utkal General friends, you know, in school and work, but the one who you bring him so close to you and you open your heart and middle of your house for him to come and to eat with you and to be like a family member, that person who will sit in your table and be with the family, as somebody who has to be a person of tough love, righteousness, a person that you really trust 100%
and one of the reasons is, because if he's a good friend, and he been seen coming to the house, a lot to eat and stuff like that, it will be saved because nobody doubt but bad friends have they have the habit of coming to the house a lot. They might steal, they might do bad things in the house you're not aware even
and you'll regret it later.
As for bad friends, you don't benefit from them in the dunya noranda in the Villa de curse one another. Lacan Allah Dena Kapha
Amina Jean de Waal in nejen. Houma de de cada Amina Ania coonan, Amina spurning.
They will ask Allah Subhana Allah to show them those friends who misled them to put them in the ground so they can step over them.
No Josie Rahim Allah said, I have not seen anything can harm the believer, more than being mixing with people who are not be who be fitted to him because they will quickly
influenced by them. And even if he is not like them 100% then he said even if he doesn't maybe steal like them or do bad things like what they do for him to get like them, but he will have their attitude and his Dean will go down. That's what shows him a whole lot.
Also, in this verse that we just read, there is a concept that called a Tomasi will help What are Sybil sub
Allah Spanner Darla said that those who should be in the company with those who remind each others would help those who are
not the verse that we just said sorry, those who the process almost orders to be in the company with their quality that they have to ask, they remind each other they inspire each others and one of us pantalla order Mohammed's or solemn to be with the the group of Muslims or the company of those, those individual from the Muslims who righteous is not a Lost Planet. Allah is not encouraged us to break the oma into groups and clubs and Azhar that they don't go along with each other's but our last one the oma to be groups that they help one another, that they develop one another, okay. And as a last like I said, and Sora terrassa, one also in the insan the human one revision two, then he
said after that, he believed in a lot, and he do good deeds, then when it comes next, he said, and those who the pronoun became poor gentlemen, and in some move on kanima for the genes lacking will move on to macatawa. So what was the what was all the sudden so he moved from being a single because the act of worship, that believe it's a personal thing, but spreading goodness in the society, giving Dawa reminding one each other, it cannot happen without being all together as a community and a society.
It is so important for the Muslims to work together collectively. Because see this how it works. There is an organized effort to spread evil on the earth.
There is an organized effort to spread immorality in the earth. There is an organized effort to spread injustice in there.
Do you agree
100% agree you see that there is an organized effort to spread and to push certain agenda under an organized effort cannot be countered with anything less than another organized effort.
Otherwise, there is no way we can counter this effort. an organized effort against the Muslim community must be faced by an organized effort from the Muslim community to push back
an organized effort to speak
morality in our society, it has to be faced with an organized effort to push morality in the society.
That's why it is so important to understand that concept. A lot of people, they don't work together, they don't want to be working together. You know, it takes you forever to put up a meeting for the Imams just to bring them together, for the leaders of the community to put them together. You know, it's so hard for you to bring the community our brothers and sisters to make them as a team to work for the society. Everybody doesn't want just I can a little bit give you help. But nobody willing really to commit and to put time and effort and to
And Allah Subhana Allah told Mohammed to be part of we didn't tell him you by yourself, do it. That's why if you look at the process on companion, each and every one of them excel in one area, you put them together, you have the best team Abubakar, the most soft hearted one among the strongest one the most. The person has the midst of chaos was a matter of the power and the purse the person was perfect when it comes to the end the knowledge of inheritance and, and knowledge related to death and things of that nature. ziet The one who read the Quran the most.
The one who knows the rules the halal and haram are the most trusted one the mean of how the Roma aboard obey the law.
The principle Sallam said take the Koran from for people in Massoud obey even a cap mother Mujibur, Salah Mola, Abu hanifa these are the four that you'd learn Quran from an immigrant no euro him Allah said it's because those for the took the whole entire Quran directly from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam
while the rest of the companion, they might take some verses from each others, not necessarily from the process of the mouth directly, okay, or it could be because these four have dedicated the rest of their life only to teach Quran they have no job, they never took a job, they never took responsibility, the only the rest of their life they doing nothing but to teach the Quran teach the knowledge, or because in the visa Salaam knew that after his death, those four will be spread all over the Muslim world. And they will be the reference for Al Quran.
And to be honest, and all of this, the thing that the Noah mentioned, are very accurate.
Number three, that lessons. Don't ever feel arrogant to set with
your Muslim brothers and community members. Even if they are way less than you, financially or socially. We should not ever,
ever stop sitting with people just because they are poor, or they are less fortunate than you. Or maybe they are socially not like you are not from your tribe or not from your background. That's a lesson that we learn from this verse. Not because they're not very well educated harass you just look down upon them, or just not because they are not rich. Or you know, they don't dress like you or they don't have all these like trademark purses and shirts and you know, and shoes and some people like that malice Matata protect us, you know, this is not the why the money and are you down to earth you sit with everyone in the society and you willing to talk to them, not saying be hanging
out a friend with everybody. Everybody can have friends with people that you feel comfortable but don't let the financial status or the social status be the determining factor? Because that's how the kofod were. And the bad people were less than the sort of the SRA about the enemy of the messengers. They said to the messenger panel, Mineola, coward tabernacle out of saloon.
They said each think we're going to believe in you and we follow you.
And you are followed by the lowest class of people.
We're not going to do that.
So some people today are these immigrants, these this this this, you see that bigotry today exist in some of the even disbelievers today? And if you have no they don't believe in any book, any value is actually
an abuse. salatu salam said, Come to Alabama Jenna sakana Amato Mandara hamasaki. I was at the game
The agenda and I saw the most of the people enter it in it will enter the Day of Judgment. The poor
and wonder ation. Misaki, Vianney, what do you call middle class today
and abuse Allah Allah seldom passed by a man
and in the visa Salam said what do you think of this man?
So, the Sahaba say,
oh this man wow this is gentlemen. If this man proposed to any family, they will immediately give them his fat his daughters and if he intercede for anyone and their session will be accepted. If he speaks everybody will listen to him.
Then individuals on them kept quiet. This man is very rich
and Mac or Medina that time whatever that took place, then in Ibiza salemme pass by another Medina and inefficient pass by someone who was very poor from the Muslim and interview sallallahu Sallam said what about this man said this man If this man proposed to anyone, nobody will give them give him the daughters. If he speaks nobody will listen if he intercede nobody cared for him. Then individual Salim said
Karna Lucha de hierro min min are the means in myth luchador
he said that poor person is better than the whole entire Earth filled with someone like the first one a rich guy that you guys so proud of.
It's a prospective para nimisha salam there is so many people

Or very wire tempo and who ins people look at him and they don't see him of value like people underestimate them just by looking at him. Mad for him when people close the golden frontier in his in his face.
He comes by your car close your car koechlin you know before he talks to you, you know you see him you go to the other side.
navies are seldom said most people look like that. That can Hello Oksana. Adeline ababwa we're in the middle of nowhere
but this person some of those people would like that some of them if he made an oath upon a lie said you're a law. One law you will do this alone will do it for him.
A low a clue that the one that you don't care for Allah Subhana Allah will care for him that he will not reject requests from him.
And among them will borrow
I'm saying this because today that is a problem and
we're so fascinated by other than Muslims.
You know, I go to
doctor for example.
oh my god his era Oh my God, he's Palestinian. He has a beard.
Do you have a white guy here to you know to ask you know, all I colosse just because I look at someone just because his last name is this oh my god Nigerian doctor that some interesting to you know, engineer, you know, our like be you know, oh my god, this is like a box Donnie, this. We have this. Unfortunately, we have this complicity. That it because maybe he doesn't have the best luck that you even have a good best look. But because that perception is a black guy is why is this or what we build certain persona and we just judge people based on it. That's wrong. Especially if you under estimating the value of people.
Like one of the things that I heard recently, that is this perception that where black people in America excel
in sports, you think they're athletic, you know that there is more black people in
physicians than athletics.
This perception you know that there is more white people live off welfare than black. And that statistically
they go and take, you know, welfare and social help from the government. It but it's a perception
and that's not true.
And that's very dangerous when you judge people just by luck and you start distance yourself or you bring yourself close to them. And also forget about them even sometimes the faster among the Muslim, he will be treated expert and look Wow, he looks professional, just because he's a clean shave with a you know, crisper. I'm fine. This doesn't stop here. But this is someone who follow the sun now tourism Muslim or practicing similar to newbies or salami underestimate him. He looked down upon them. He doesn't have respect for them.
There is a sister and this true story. She used to help the Muslim community she was non Muslim. And she used to always come to the classes and you know, helping and stuff like that. So finally, she's used to consult the Muslim community many things in public relations and activity. So anyway, she loved also community, she became what?
A Muslim she became a sister. So she wears the hijab, okay. And she come to the meeting.
Man, nobody respects her.
Because she became a sister.
She stood in the back, go behind the wall. And she was treating so bad that one day the brother was telling me, she was very fed up. So she was in the meeting with the community leader. So as you talk, she came in, she was wearing a suit, you know, proper, so
then she took off her hijab.
She put her her, you know, fixer her on she said, Now you will notice
because when I cover my hat, I'm just a sister. Nobody cared for
one week before that when I used to dress like this and come like this, everybody was like Mashallah, thank you very much. That's very not. She said, it's, it's hurt, it hurts.
So, you know, here maybe the old days, it was about the Prophet, telling him Oh, don't be, you know, don't feel bad to sit and eat and be around the poor. Today, maybe it comes manifested itself in another example like this. So we have to be very careful that we don't fall into that trap.
For Be careful from the dunya, the dimia 10 potations. It will destroy you. If you just chase the dunya all the time.
And maybe you sell Allah, Allah Allahu Allah wa sallam. He said, once I sitting in the member, what I'm afraid of the most that the dunya opened its door for you. wealth, access to everything beautiful in this world. So you start rushing, running after it and it will destroy you. That's what the process of them said.
Also, number five, be very careful. From laferla. to local, for in an album in reflecting, listen, be very careful that your heart will not remember a law
as much because in the verse if you notice, Allah said don't obey who may whom that we made his heart heedless. His heart Don't remember us a lot didn't say whom his tongue doesn't remember us. His heart doesn't think about a lot does it remember a lot
because if your heart this attach from Allah, it doesn't matter what your tongue is doing.
Number six, when Allah subhanaw taala said and don't follow those who their affairs became last photo scattered all over the place.
I always ask myself is my affair scatter? I'm all over the place.
I'm like following this group and that group in this way and that way I'm trying this guy's a little bit and that's a problem and now you have some of the brothers who want to follow he follow the sun no one day and he's like Salafi one day and his Sophie one day and it's like Shiva on progress of one day and he will all over the place and he doesn't know where to go.
That's, you know, the jihad is sometimes he listened to them the you know, the topiary sometimes and he feels like he completely lost.
That's, that's wrong. It's important for you to know and to understand where you going and how you What's your
Journey to illustrator start from and will end were
also those who scattered all over the place. Who end they don't care for the
all of the care about what's the latest fashion. What's the latest movie? What is the latest game? What's the update with the NBA? You know, I think we're done with the football. That's right. yesterday.
Houston has done it in college one done.
College one done. Okay, so we're gonna start with the
I'm not going to sports. Don't miss him say, but what I'm against is is this all your life, in the law, your billable could not even be dunya Johanna Menaka. Allah hates those who only have knowledge about worldly affairs. And they have no knowledge of the ARCA It's a shame that we have Shabaab we have young people, young girls, all we know is the worldly matters, they know nothing about the aka. And I mean by that nothing about the thing that will take them to the area that will benefit them in the era.
Number seven, be very careful. The verse telling us to not ever follow this trap, which is you will do something because you think I will gain benefit out of it. While I'm hot, maybe, but I'm hungry assure in pursuing that
maybe benefit or cause harm?
Or a Muslim helmet or hammer? Allah hisab in my facility? Can
you chase a benefit? That is maybe is not 100% sure is going to happen? Okay, but you know, 100% you're going to cause harm to someone where this from the verse
why the processor then when the kuffaar told them, okay, we will sit with you and hammer to the condition. Tell the believer those sohio bombilla the weak and the four, let them move,
don't sit with them have a special setting for us? What is the benefit, there is a benefit, which is the might what except the slap, but 100% you will harm your friends 100% you will hurt their feeling 100% you will look like a person who do not have principles in life
that you willing to betrayed your own friends, and you kick them out.
So that's 100% problem going to happen. This is very important lessons, not only not only in power, but in life in general.
Many times we chase something that is not 100% not we're not sure about it, there is slim possibility, but in the process, we might cause a lot of harm to ourselves and to other people.
I think the darat today need to understand this value very well.
Rule goes like this, if you have two harms, and you have to choose between them, you take the less
if you have two benefits, and you have to choose between one of them, you choose the bigger merchant benefit. When you have harm and benefits, we ask which one is your 100% sure about
the benefits or go
the harms all avoided even if I lose the benefit, though what if I am 100% sure about the harm. And 100% sure about the benefits. And this case earlier Maddie said the Alma facet mocha massage, I know I will, I will cause harm and I will get a benefit they tell you know, live the benefit and avoid the harm.
This is me Zander. This is a very critical way of thinking. I'll say that again. So you have
two harms. You choose the last two goods which is the bigger
harm and benefit
that absolutely 100% that will be a benefit and will be a harm. They said in this case, avoid the benefits and protect the harm.
You know what? I am going to have a benefit by
align with certain groups in the community or in the country,
align myself with it, I'll get a benefit, I'll get a little bit of protection. But in this process, I know that I'm going to cost so much harm to the future generation. I have to agree and to admit and so many things against my principles and be that my principle and morality and I will make that sacrifice and I will make that effect of my in my community. In this case, with the benefits goes away, protect yourself from the heart, shallow benefit, another chance you can get it another way.
The whatever if I am 100%, about the sure about the benefits, but the harm is not, you know, maybe you go with what you're sure about.
Also, this verse shows us, number eight shows us the way to judge people is not by how much they have in the bank, not how much degree that they got. No, it is not about the power is not about the wealth. It's about
the character. It's about their belief, their faith, their character, their morality, their principles. Okay. For our own, he said
when I de
cada ami Elisa de malcolmus,
tangerine Tati, Sharon,
and her euro Manhattan lady who am I mean, when I occurred to you been shuffled
around, Pharaoh called out among his people, and he said, Oh my people, doesn't the kingdom of Egypt belong to me and these rivers flow beneath me, then do you not see, that's that's how you judge himself as a good person, as for Mussa, or I'm not better than this one who is insignificant, and hardly makes himself clear, because they'll speak very well most.
Number nine, you have to be patient when you around good Muslims. When you come to classes, you have to be patient, when you you know it's patient and live is essential for for especially dealing with Muslims. I need you need a lot of patience.
Okay, I'm sorry, it's late, but just wrap it up number 10. In this verse that is encourage to all of us to continuously worship Allah day and night. That's why belladati will actually do this in the morning and the night. And we said before it means all the time.
Number 11. you redo our chat they do this for his sake. It is so important to always make sure that we are sincere in our offer in our work. Sincerity is the key for salvation. Sincerity is the key for success. So sincerity is the key for acceptance, now Lost Planet and accept from all of us and I will stop here.
