Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam in sha Allah, all of you in the best of health, and Iman and I pray that you're all doing well, brothers and sisters, it seems that we're having some technical difficulties already Subhan Allah, may Allah make it easy for the brothers, you know Subhanallah we're all fasting we're all going through some struggles Subhanallah especially with love last night so upon that we were on the show till very, very late brothers and sisters and what actually ended up happening is we had our so hold on camera myself, I had a very small sample of handleless and Emma from Allah subhanaw taala that we are enabled to eat

00:00:48--> 00:01:21

our support and our Iftar there are people we've been on some of the live appeals previously, there are people's hung around the world, they don't actually have access today if they don't have access to this hall and they're struggling Subhanallah So brothers and sisters hamdulillah once again, we are joined by our chef Sheikh Hussein Kempson, Salam Alikum walaikum salam Wa Rahmatullah. How are you? Very well handled is that good afternoon shift for joining us. Once again, I'm humbled. I'm looking forward to the conversation that we're going to have along the course of this show, brothers and sisters, just to let you know in sha Allah about Ramadan with iman, the first part of the show

00:01:21--> 00:01:59

before Iftar we like to have a conversation and make it discussion based in sha Allah. And after we come back from the mothership, and one of the things that we do like to do is Quran with Imam and what we do on Quran with Imam is we like to discuss have a brief discussion, briefly go over some of the themes of the Jews that will be being read tonight inshallah in taraweeh. So brothers and sisters, I do hope that all of you benefit, benefit Inshallah, from the show, also throughout the course of the show, you can call up if you do have any questions, Inshallah, to ask, check with him any of your questions, the number to call is oh, 235150769 getting straight into the discussion

00:01:59--> 00:02:06

Inshallah, for today. One of the ways I wanted to start it off, inshallah is just by mentioning how

00:02:07--> 00:02:48

it for us as human beings, it's not actually very difficult for us to develop a habit, whether that habit be a good habit, or a bad habit, I was actually I heard that, scientifically it takes 21 days for us as human beings to actually develop a habit. So Ramadan, I'm sure is a good opportunity for us to do that. Chef, maybe from some of your experience, so inshallah if you could impart some of your knowledge on us on this topic of developing habits and keeping some of the habits that we might develop during Ramadan, maybe throw away might become a habit. So is that something we can carry on after Ramadan? Maybe fasting? Also, you know, because we do it so much in a row, maybe we can

00:02:49--> 00:02:58

implement that after Ramadan? What What comes to your mind when we're talking about this year? Yeah, sure. 100 level salatu salam ala Novigrad

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

that's quite interesting actually, to say that,

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

but it's been proven it takes 21 days for something to become a habit. Yeah.

00:03:07--> 00:03:15

And it becomes part of your, your daily or weekly, or whatever routine that is, I don't know, I guess if you do have a 21 days, it would be a daily routine.

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

But in the month of Ramadan and Hamdulillah, we get into the routine of,

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

of fasting 100 And every day

00:03:23--> 00:03:29

and we know that the most beloved actions to Allah subhanaw taala are those which are done frequently even if they're very small.

00:03:30--> 00:03:46

It could be something like I don't know just putting your shoes on, beginning with the right and then when taking your shoes off, you take off with your left. These are small little habits, small little things, habits like always reminding yourself that you will always drink with your right hand

00:03:47--> 00:03:58

you'll never use your your left hand for the bathroom as a Commonwealth. So these kinds of things in terms of habits are risk small reminders of Allah subhanaw taala

00:04:00--> 00:04:01

and the more

00:04:02--> 00:04:29

more habits that you have and this is the point that doesn't need to be one main habit that you do, but it needs to be more of a smaller things. For this reason the prophet Elisha Some said that these are the most beloved actions to a lost parent and even if they be small, because the small one at the same time just as a major issue will still remind you of Allah subhanaw taala So yes, we are in the month of Ramadan and we are fasting every day and we are establishing our prayers regularly.

00:04:30--> 00:04:37

We may get into the habit of for some you know establishing the five daily prayers you know, we know many stories many circumstances or scenarios where

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

some brothers and sisters before Ramadan maybe want you know practicing Islam as they really wanted to. And then you know the month of Ramadan came and you know the whole thing changed for them. And then by the way when Ramadan finished and they eat past and how did they find themselves you know from those people who established the prayer. So it's a great opportunity for us to renew those habits. That

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

It really we should all have I mean, after the mother knows Allah azza wa jal doesn't expect us to fast every day. And even the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that to what other companions Abdullah had and Ramadan, whilst on the line, Homer, that, you know, there is no better fast and fasting one day and in breaking revenue. So Ramadan is unique, in fact, but it goes a good long way in trying to push you to instill very good habits and more the most important things these habits are based upon worship performance. Most definitely deserve love friendship for that, Amanda, and I think it's really, really true brother and sisters, we need to try our best, you know, to implement these

00:05:36--> 00:06:09

habits. And one of the things that actually came into my mind and implement these good habits, one of the things actually came into my mind, while the chef was speaking, was how Subhanallah is from a young age, we will get used to doing certain things. For example, some of the chef mentioned, the chef mentioned, habits, like when you go to the toilet, the hand that you'll wash yourself with, that's something that we used to do now. So it's not even a question in your mind, you'll do that. The next time you go to the toilet, you'll do that, you know, without even thinking, eating with your right hand, for example, that's a habit that many of us are hamdulillah have developed over the

00:06:09--> 00:06:45

years. And that's something that our parents may have instilled in us from a young age. But Subhanallah we do it now without even thinking there's no question about it. When food is gonna come in front of you Subhanallah in around 20 minutes, Inshallah, we're all going to be breaking our fast Allahu Akbar. And when we're going to eat, it's not even a question in your mind that you're going to eat with your right hand. So I think, with these habits, what's so amazing about them is that when you actually get into the habit, I'm using the word habit a lot. So when you get into the habit of doing these things on a regular basis, when you get into the process of doing these things on a

00:06:45--> 00:07:17

regular basis, they become habits. And I think that also comes back to trying your best to do good things all the time. Whenever you get the chance, do good. And if you keep doing that, those good things will eventually become a habit insha Allah habit mentioned around 100 times this funnel, a lot of times they but it's true. We actually have a caller on the line shift. So we'll take the first caller for the day. A Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah you alive on Ramadan with iman. What is your name? And what is your question for the chef today in sha Allah

00:07:19--> 00:07:21

I'm led to fetch O G from new quest.

00:07:22--> 00:07:28

I would like to know if I allowed my money to non Muslim

00:07:29--> 00:08:09

Okay JazakAllah fan for calling in and ask are asking that question. So, we will get that question asked her to share controller is that the only question? Yes, no problem. So she may Allah bless the sister she called in and she asked a question pertaining to what are the different ways in which we can spend our cuts money? I mean, are there certain limits that I was acquired money can't go to certain places good. So, Allah Subhana Allah mentions in the Quran the different categories or different types of people who can receive this occur and it is important us as if we have some sucker to give, but we have to make sure that there's only those categories that the money will be

00:08:09--> 00:08:21

given to because the car is different from sadaqa sadaqa you can give to anybody sadaqa you can give to the old the young, the Muslim or non Muslim the Prophet sallallaahu Selim would give

00:08:22--> 00:08:49

charity to to non Muslim okay and and on occasions and visit non Muslims, okay. But as far as occurred, then this specific type of a brother really needs to be within the eight categories, which Allah subhanaw taala mentions in Surah Toba, one of those categories is as well maliphant dokubo And that is those whose hearts are inclined towards Islam. Some of the scholars have differed over this matter over this particular

00:08:51--> 00:08:58

type of recipient, whether it is applicable now. But what I would say is that at Hamdulillah, that there are many opportunities and many

00:09:00--> 00:09:41

ways that we know that the poor and the destitute the Fukada and the Moroccan, the poor and the very poor people choose a trustworthy organization who can distribute yours, yours occur to them so that they can receive the channel Tanisha is strictly only those categories that you find in in Surah Tober in verse number 16 In sha Allah, so sister is still on the line. Yes, I hope that makes it clear for you in sha Allah is that is that clear to you? Yes. Does that cut off in and how is your Ramadan going sister Alhamdulillah learn handling wonderful met lots of is for me in sha Allah insha Allah may Allah subhanaw taala bless you make things easy for you. Does that allow fend for calling

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

into stir? May Allah bless you? So brothers and sisters, just to remind you in sha Allah, this is Ramadan with iman, and this is the discussion part of the show. So if you would like to call in it's not necessarily that you have to have a question. Maybe you want to throw in a topic in Sharla. Maybe you'd like to shift to discuss something with yourself. The number to call is on your screen. Oh 235

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

150769 This is an ASCII man ASCII man will be from one to 3am but nonetheless Insha Allah, it's a discussion show, and I'm sure that Sheikh would be happy to have discussion with you on any topic of your choice in Charlotte of course pertaining to Ramadan. So later on Sheikh Inshallah, we will be, hopefully after after the McGraw button, after we've had our Iftar we will be discussing. So, the Jews that we will be reading in Sharla tonight in taraweeh, just number 13, and the surah is included as one of the Surah Surah Yusuf towards the end immediate the ending of Surah Yusuf also sorted hedger and also Surah Rahim. Okay, it's very beautiful chapters. So I'm looking forward

00:10:40--> 00:10:57

inshallah to hearing the brief themes and there are Shia who see him in sha Allah and sisters will be taking us through the brief themes of this surah as inshallah some maybe some of the topics mentioned in the sorrows, some a brief lessons that we can learn from them in sha Allah. So chef, getting back into the conversation about habits and going on from habits.

00:10:58--> 00:11:32

The way that habits actually developed, of course, we know is from people continuously doing good things. One of the things that came into my mind is that it always comes down to a choice, isn't it? But it comes back to a choice where we need to choose, in situations whether to choose the right choice or the bad choice. How as Muslims, can we put it within ourselves to always make those right decisions? And will we always make the right choices? Yeah, so the issue of choices. So Allah subhanaw taala created us in a way that we have free will.

00:11:34--> 00:12:04

And this is a different topic, but nonetheless, I'll just touch on it very, very, very briefly, because some, some non Muslims actually have misunderstandings concerning freewill. So we all have freewill, but our will is the will of Allah subhanaw taala at the same time, no matter SHA one or sha Allah, that you do not will no matter except that ALLAH subhanaw taala wills that. So, you can decide to you know, pick up the tablet in your hand or you can put it down you can decide to break your fast with milk or with whatever you want to do you have that choice.

00:12:06--> 00:12:47

And there are certain things that are constantly throughout our lives, we are making choices and there are certain things which will have an impact on whether we will be rewarded for that or we may be punished by that. And we know that Allah subhanaw taala told him or her Dina who Nadine, that Allah Subhan Allah guide us to the the two paths. And we know that the servant will be in my Shakira in Makkah fora that they will be either a grateful and thankful servant or they will be a disobedient, ungrateful servant. So the choices are there for us. And the formula is, or if you like, the situation is that the person who has more Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala, the person who

00:12:47--> 00:13:22

has stronger Eman is by Allah's permission, more likely to make the right choice and go down the right path, as opposed to taking the or making the wrong choice and then going down the wrong path. So this is the thing you know, as I mentioned, that, you know, when you're driving your car, or when you're going to the supermarket, or when you are going about your daily business in your life, you're constantly have choices. And as a Muslim, you want to preserve your Eman. You want to do the right thing. You know that there are injunctions in the Quran Hotbird bazaar to lower your gaze to preserve your to preserve your heart. And there's a choice whether you're going to let your eyes go

00:13:22--> 00:13:55

around, or there's a choice that you will try to control when you look at. So these are the kinds of things that we are challenged with every day. And the point is that the closer you are to Allah subhanaw taala the stronger your Emanuel's is that the more likely but even Allah, you will have slip ups because we're all human beings, but the more likely you are that you will make the right choice more often will lie. Yes upon that. I mean, the reason I mentioned that point, and I wanted to discuss that with you chef is because thinking about it, if we think about life in general, as you mentioned, it's literally like a car journey. And in that car journey you might make, you know,

00:13:55--> 00:14:30

you might take wrong turns, etc. But as long as you get to that final destination, that insha Allah is of course for all of us. I hope it's Jana, inshallah. That's our plan, at least it should be our plan. Then if we follow the GPS, you won't go wrong. Yes. If you follow Quran, you won't go wrong. Allahu Akbar. Yes, I like the use of the car examples. I thought let me just bring it close to what we're talking about. Yes, yes, yes. The Quran is your GPS telling you where to go what route to take. Otherwise the baby some people think I'm going to take a shortcut. And then the shortcuts usually are being long cuts, you know, shift we have some people you know, like Subhan Allah my

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

mother may Allah bless her she finds very difficult sometimes to follow the actual GPS in the car, she finds it difficult to follow that so you might have some people who they're going through some problems in life where they're finding it difficult to follow the GPS. Yeah. You have to say something about your mother now. Of course, I mean, my mother may Allah bless her. I mean, you said to me, you have to say you have to replace that GPS that is that matters the most Mashallah. Which is which we're talking about, which is the Quran and being a good person. I think she's doing a pretty good job with that. And hello, so her driving it's not it's not really too

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

much of a problem on Humpday land because the main thing is there Hamdulillah we actually have a caller on the line joining us with the conversation as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah you alive on Ramadan with Eman? What is your name? And where are you calling from sister?

00:15:15--> 00:15:16

Salam Alikum

00:15:18--> 00:15:31

walaikum salam just started studies colloquium for joining us on Ramadan with iman. What's your name? And do you have a question for the shift today? Yeah, my name is Maria. I'm from Chloe from Sheffield. Mashallah, Sokoloff and Sister Maria for putting in

00:15:32--> 00:15:35

my question is a bit deep. Okay.

00:15:36--> 00:15:40

So I know, I know everything. But

00:15:42--> 00:15:52

he so he knows the outcome if we're gonna go to heaven or hell. So why are we in this test? If you already know? Okay, interesting question in sha Allah will ask that to the ship.

00:15:55--> 00:16:34

If you stay on the line sister insha. Allah would like to maybe discuss this with you after Inshallah, maybe you you might have a further question in sha Allah. So, Chef, as a sister asked, she says, if Allah subhanaw taala knows the outcome, you know, whether we are going to go to Jana or Johanna, or what's going to happen to us? Why are we even heaven in the first place? Okay, it's a good question. So, this has a link to what I was just talking about, briefly, actually, a short while ago, in that we have free will. So yes, Allah subhanaw taala his knowledge is, is infinite to knowledge, I that he has no restrictions are no boundaries. So Allah subhanaw taala knows what was

00:16:34--> 00:17:11

without any beginning, knows what is without any restriction and knows what will be without any restriction, and know what would be if it was to be like that. So Allah Jalla wa Ala is knowledge encompasses all of that. So Allah subhanaw taala, knows the destination of every single one of his creation. Now, one of the companions actually came to the Prophet salallahu Salam said that if our destination has already been written, Eliza knows where we are going, what's the point of, of us doing anything? If I'm from the people of hellfire, what's the point me doing anything? If I'm from the people of Ghana? Well, you know, I'm from the gym now, and I'm good to go. But the Prophet

00:17:11--> 00:17:30

alayhi salam said that you should do you should work, because everything will be will be facilitated, made easy for that individual on the destination, or the route that they will take. So if a person sits back does nothing says, well, if I'm going to go hellfire, what's the point is 5050 flick of a coin? If you know, just you know, maybe the person is being a bit pessimistic. So

00:17:32--> 00:18:03

look at the God thing. Well, because you've done nothing, because you sat back, then maybe you're deserving of the punishment of apartheid. But a person who decided to work and said, No, I'm optimistic, I have hope in our last panel to add that I will be from the people of paradise, I have that choice. I have the choice of doing nothing. And I have the choice of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. So then that person works and struggles and strives throughout their life and then they meet Allah subhanaw taala. And then Allah, Allah will and you will you know yourself what you did, you are informed of everything you did in your life, and then you have the hope that has panned out will

00:18:03--> 00:18:29

reward you with the paradise in the hereafter. We don't know the answer. Yeah, Allah subhanaw taala does, yes. We are not forced to do our actions. Eliza did did not force us to do things, we have the element of free choice, which is in line with the will of Allah subhanaw taala. So we strive and we struggle, and we hope that Allah subhanaw taala will make us from the people of paradise. I hope this simplifies. Yeah, I think it does. I mean, sister you on the line. Inshallah, if you're on the line, I think Chef,

00:18:31--> 00:18:46

is the right way to look at it as just because Allah subhanho wa Taala knows what you will do with your free will doesn't mean that you don't have control over yourself. Exactly. So, sister, does that make sense to you, inshallah? Yeah, I think so I think,

00:18:47--> 00:18:55

but, like, what, why do we have to go through this test? If he already knows our destination?

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

Why are we Why does he want us to do?

00:18:59--> 00:19:07

So? Why do you know if we have been created? We're not questioning I'm sure you're not questioning why I'm here because I'm Muslim. I know what I'm here.

00:19:08--> 00:19:40

Yeah, so then do I quit? Do I just Allah subhanaw taala suddenly just throw that person into the hellfire. And the person says, Wait a minute, why am I here? What's going on? What if the person ends up in paradise? And says okay, they're going to question a bit, they help you they are they will be happy there. And then they may question but maybe some other people who you know, my family members why then the Hellfire or people that I know of? Why then the hellfire, why might the paradise what was going on? So there needs to be kind of a living of our lives that will be something for us or against us. So that when we meet Allah subhanaw taala, that there is a set of

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

deeds that we that we did. I think I think she's I mean, sister if you sit on the line as well, I think it's a thing we

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

also if Allah subhanaw taala just through someone into Jahannam or through someone into Jana, without them earning that, would it wouldn't that be a bit unjust, you know, subhanAllah because imagine

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

you're thrown into Jana, and you're seeing other people in Jahannam the people and Johanna might be looking at you and Jana and thinking, we didn't even get a chance. You know, we didn't even get that freewill. So I think it's a thing where I mean, Chef, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's the way my mind understands this question is that we have to be given that chance. And just because Allah the old knowing knows what we're going to do, I mean, doesn't mean that you know, subhanAllah, that we don't have that free will we have that free will, the proof of that is, you had the free will to pick up the phone and make this phone call. So I think it's a thing where if, you know, with

00:20:33--> 00:20:53

what you're saying is, is that if it was a case where Allah subhanaw taala just put us there because he knew we're going to be there anyway, then that would be unfair on us, because we haven't worked for it. We haven't earned that. And for the people that would be in Jahannam, they would have every right to say, oh, Allah, you didn't even give us a chance. Does that make sense? Yeah.

00:20:55--> 00:21:09

Yeah, I hope that makes sense to you, sister, Inshallah, how's your Ramadan going? It's going really well. Thank you. And hamdulillah that's good to hear. Inshallah, if you do have any further questions, or maybe you have any further things that you need clarified from the chef would be happy to take your call in sha Allah and discuss that with you.

00:21:11--> 00:21:54

Baraka, Lovick zakat offering for calling in, so So Schiff going going, I mean, this, this is a topic that has, I think, cause it can cause a lot of confusion in the minds of a lot of people, you know, these sorts of topics, especially questions, that sometimes I'm not saying the sister done this, but sometimes it's the thing where we I found, sometimes people ask questions that they don't really need to ask or don't really need to know. I mean, that's a question. Of course, there's a common question. And many people, they do need to ask that because it's something that's bugging them. But for example, questions like, chef, I mean, does Allah have a body? Now? What? When we when

00:21:54--> 00:22:25

we meet Allah subhanaw taala? How did Allah create this? It doesn't make sense in my head. You know, sometimes people might ask questions. I mean, I don't know if he's a good example. Maybe you could give us a better one. Sometimes people ask questions that they don't really need to ask, it doesn't make a difference to them, you know, in their daily life, it doesn't really make a difference. You know, there's, there's a science actually, called science, there's a type of knowledge which could focus oil. Okay, there's the knowledge of how to or how to ask, what type of question is a good question? I mean, I know there are common things, there's no such things a silly question.

00:22:26--> 00:22:45

Because there are certain matters, which, you know, may be bugging a person, which, you know, it's, it's okay for them to ask. But similarly, we, the person who's responding to them can inform them that there are certain questions which don't lead to much of a benefit in the answer. Okay. I mean, there there's a question. It's a valid question, but the answer really doesn't change.

00:22:46--> 00:22:54

A great deal. So it's important for us to I mean, as you gain knowledge, as you kind of experienced and you've come across new things, your your questions will be,

00:22:55--> 00:23:14

they will change the kinds of things that you ask and to be honest with you the question that the sister asked is a very important question, because it's representative of an article of faith, which is called Yes. And as I mentioned, that there are many Muslims who really don't understand the reality of what Qatar actually do, really what it is.

00:23:15--> 00:23:53

There are elements and aspects of that which you can say is beyond our comprehension. Yeah. Aspects of color, which we can't, we can't encompass that. It's just, you know, beyond our comprehension. So there are certain things that we just, that's how it is. Yeah, you know, I remember being younger share. You know, I remember being younger, and one thing that really didn't make sense to me when I was young, and it really started to play down on me, was the whole concept of Jana. And a lot of people might find this well, what why wouldn't it make sense? It wouldn't make sense to me because I would imagine a Jana, that's forever, we are told, you know, Holly Dena, fie her Avada they will be

00:23:53--> 00:24:33

there in forever, like, forever and ever. And that didn't make sense to me. Because in this world, we don't, we don't have a concept of forever. Sure. We don't have an infinite concept. Nothing in this world is infinite. You know, even if that'd be food, and not nothing for us. So I as a child, you know, 1314 is I found it really hard to understand how is Janna going to be forever? And then my father had to sit down with me and explain to me that, no, it's a thing where there's some things you won't be able to comprehend. There's some things because it goes beyond our comprehension, you know, so for example, understanding even the concept, not concept but understanding Allah. So if you

00:24:33--> 00:25:00

can put it another way is that we know that Allah subhanaw taala is the most merciful, okay, we can understand that as as a concept. Encompassing and then the reality of how merciful Allah subhanaw taala is that's beyond our scope or comprehension. So there's understanding the concept of something and there's understanding the reality of that. Yes, yes. Okay. So I can understand the point your example that you're giving the okay as a concept because I don't want to see it there.

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

because it's a reality for us Yes. Living living forever this is something that I as a as a point I can understand what that means. But as a reality it's beyond my comprehension to understand what actually the reality of that is. Yes, masha Allah, we actually have a caller on the line. So we'll take the caller in sha Allah hopefully they can get into the conversation as well and maybe they have a question. So now they come to LA. You will live on Ramadan with Eman What would you like to say to us today in sha Allah? First I like to this Ramadan coming to everyone in the studio to shake. Does that mean Allah subhanaw taala bless you, brother. And what would you like to say to us

00:25:35--> 00:25:40

Inshallah, I would just like to ask Sheikh is a question that I pondered on for a long time.

00:25:42--> 00:25:52

Do our relatives in the era do they know what's going on in the dunya? without, like, you know, something that I've always thought about is anything from

00:25:54--> 00:25:57

our teachings in life enlighten us to the answer.

00:25:58--> 00:26:03

Okay, Inshallah, I mean, Chef heard your question inshallah. So, he can speak to you directly,

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

please so on this issue.

00:26:07--> 00:26:38

In general, when the person moves on to the hereafter, they have a life of the buzzer, which is the life of the grave. And there isn't any interaction as such between the life of the grave and the life of this worldly life that we have. However, if for example, that us and we are living in this world, that we will make dua for the deceased and we will do things in their name, we will set up charity for them, they may be rewarded in their grave for that, okay, and then in turn that they will receive the benefit of that Allah subhanaw taala I will, if you like

00:26:40--> 00:26:53

grant them note in their grave or widen their grave and things like that. So there is a link between some of the things that we can do now in childhood and what can impact on the deceased when they're in their graves, it's very, very important to constantly make dua for them and to do

00:26:54--> 00:26:59

pass on some of the deeds that were allowed to, to the deceased so that they can benefit from them.

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


00:27:02--> 00:27:35

Does that make sense to you inshallah? It does. It does. hamdulillah and how's your Ramadan going? Alhamdulillah Very good.

And what would you like to say to us here in the studio today in sha Allah followed from document a love about a tattoo, I just wanted to explain him in the sister coldy a little interesting about the way everything is planned. And what's the point? Something I just wanted to share? Because I thought I've got something a little bit I wanted to want others to know about. Why not share it? It was because some Allah created us, right? And Allah decided if Allah wants to create us after the gents

00:28:12--> 00:28:51

because Allah made Adam and Eve, Allah had the wisdom. And Allah, Allah sees that. Basically, as humans, we're not going anywhere within the profits percent here for evolution. We're Unlimited, that's the ones to us. We're unlimited to think so we kind of have all the knowledge we might think we know everything. We can only know what we've what we experience in life, what the what we learn what we do every day before our life until we die. That's what life's all about. We kind of do everything but unlimited only when, even after Barsaat gets a different dimension. That's what we need to understand that we can do everything we know in the sciences or understand to data where we

00:28:51--> 00:29:26

go and why is this everyone always said why is that? Why don't we say because people will not know we only know when but Allah will tell us when when the time is right when we die or when we go to a different dimension. When we get in the heaven or hell then you know you don't come I just wanted to explain that slightly. Why do you call Islam much larger zakat author and sister mashallah, you know just like hello friend for taking the time out to call in and actually speak to us, you know, brothers and sisters we will be discussing that after the break Inshallah, but for now, we will be going for a short break inshallah.

00:44:08--> 00:44:09

Five seconds

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


00:45:14--> 00:45:57

So that was a comb Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh whom are their brothers and sisters in Islam in sha Allah all of you are in the best of health and Eman and I pray that you are all gently doing well. And Hamdulillah we just had our Iftar we broken up fossil hamdulillah and that's another day of Ramadan gone Subhanallah look at how fast time is flying us by we discussed this actually yesterday And subhanAllah it's a thing where it seems as if Ramadan will just go past us and we will be you know, they don't eat day and thinking back about how fast the time flew. So definitely brother and sisters, we all definitely need to try our best to make as much use of the time as possible insha

00:45:57--> 00:46:26

Allah also brothers and sisters, as you know, this is the segment of the show, which is called Quran with iman in sha Allah, we will be going to share with him in sha Allah who is alongside me and hamdulillah and we will he will be taking us through some of the themes some of the brief themes in sha Allah that we find in juice number 13 which is the juice of the Quran Inshallah, that they will be reciting internet star week. So chef inshallah we'll pass it right over to you.

00:46:28--> 00:46:39

Chef if you can explain to us the surah in juice 13 In insha Allah what are the some of the sewers that we will be hearing tonight interact with that level hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah guide.

00:46:41--> 00:46:53

So there are three chapters, a partial chapter, which is the end of Surah two use of and then there is also Surah total hedger and also Surah Ibrahim

00:46:56--> 00:47:15

salted hedger and Surah, Ibrahim, our little was specially salted hedgerows, in terms of the chapters that we've been going through from the beginning of the Quran. from Surah Al Baqarah and onwards, the chapters have been fairly long. Yes, however, sort of hatred is amongst those chapters is relatively short.

00:47:17--> 00:47:38

So these are the three chapters that will be recited or gone through tonight and insalata weekend channel in sha Allah. So towards the end of Surah, use of some of the themes discussed I mean, Surah Yusuf, is it right to say chef's that the whole surah is basically the story of use of a sunnah. Now that's right. So

00:47:39--> 00:47:43

use of Ra Salam is in fact only mentioned in two places in the whole Quran.

00:47:44--> 00:48:09

By name by name. Yeah, so far, I think it's already mentioned in school to offer and also, in Surah, Yusuf itself has only two places that you find use of Ali Sam is mentioned. So that means within Surah Yusuf His name is only mentioned once No, no, no, as a in a Chapter, you only find sort of useless as I mentioned in that chapter, and also in one other chapter. Okay, so he's story Manchester. Yeah.

00:48:10--> 00:48:19

So I'm sure that you would have gone through or listened to the recitation yesterday and the majority of the story, and towards the end

00:48:21--> 00:49:06

we'll, I'll mention inshallah Tada some of the themes as opposed to going through the Tafseer, which is obviously not possible for us to do. And that is the danger of hazard, which is jealousy. And the evil that can cause amongst family members or any any person for that matter. And we know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, He could have said, that beware of jealousy, because that it will consume your good deeds, just as fire will consume the wood. So jealousy is one of the great diseases that can fall into a person's heart. There are different types of jealousy. There's the jealousy, which is blameworthy which is wrong, which is essentially

00:49:08--> 00:49:46

not only just to wish that that person or to wish away the blessing that Allah Subhana Allah has given to somebody else. So for example, you see somebody with a nice car? Yeah. Okay. So it's a simple example. And you say, within yourself, you feel jealous, you say, I want it, and I don't want them to have it. I want it. And I don't want them to have it. Because type of jealousy and then there are certain things which you know, that you can't have. But for whatever reason, but yet still, you have jealousy for that person. You still don't want them to have it. Even though you can't have it yourself. You know that. I can never have that. Beauty, your own circumstances or

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

whatever. Maybe someone's height, for example, you can't change your height. So maybe someone is jealous that someone else is taller than them. Yeah, yeah, you can as an example. Yeah, somebody is taller than you for whatever reason and you see if you would be jealous of their height

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

But as an AMA that not only that you cannot have for yourself but you don't want that person to have

00:50:06--> 00:50:07

this type of jealousies

00:50:09--> 00:50:16

and it brings about other diseases like arrogance, which is one of the characteristics or the ways of bliss, early Hill Anna Tala.

00:50:17--> 00:50:22

So, we have to be very careful of that, and how it can lead to

00:50:23--> 00:50:35

even wanting to like the brothers of use of Ali Salim they wanted to do away with him and possibly kill him. So, this is the, to the extent that the jealousy went in in their lives.

00:50:36--> 00:50:40

As for the type of jealousy that you see that Allah subhanaw taala has blessed somebody with something

00:50:41--> 00:51:03

and but also you would like that as well. And this is not this is not blameless, it's not bad thing because so 100 Allah, Allah smart Allah gave that person a good thing that I would like that as well. Okay, this is not a form of jealousy, which will do away with your, you know, destroy your deeds or anything like that, but it is acceptable that you see a good thing, and you'd like that good thing as well. So it's important we understand this topic.

00:51:05--> 00:51:08

Also, we know that the

00:51:09--> 00:51:48

times we have difficulties in our lives, but eventually we no interest in Allah subhanaw taala that things can become easy. And we know that Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, in your city, your Salah. So if you look at the story of Yusuf alayhi salam that the family was essentially split up, however, Yaakov Ali Salam was patient and to turn to Allah subhanaw taala. And eventually, they will all reunited in the most beautiful way. So we always have trust in Allah subhanaw taala. And we, we find that jacobellis Allah had that always that relationship with Allah Subhana Allah, never giving up, and always asking Allah subhanaw taala to, to make it easy for himself and everybody else.

00:51:50--> 00:51:51


00:51:52--> 00:51:56

as a true believer, you should never think that you have to go through any difficulty on your own.

00:51:58--> 00:52:39

Even though that there is nobody else who can help you. And the only one that you can turn to is Allah subhanaw taala so this is a very important principle for us that whatever trial or difficulty that we're going through, you should know there's always Allah subhanaw taala that you that you will turn to, and if you look at the prophets in the Quran, from zakat era salaam, to unicyclists to a you Valley, Salem, all of them went through different trials, they all went through some difficulties, but it was always Allah subhanaw taala that they called upon, always Allah, Allah Allah that they called upon, and Alhamdulillah we know that our last panel will always answer the

00:52:39--> 00:52:41

supplication of those who are close to him.

00:52:46--> 00:52:54

Also, we take from the story and then is the story of use of a setup that reassures and strengthens the belief that patients and steadfast They will always win in the end.

00:52:55--> 00:53:37

And that patient with patients and steadfastness, that these are the keys to the peace in this life, and in the hereafter. A person shouldn't think that by resolving the situation with emotion, with anger, with allowing your own self to take over however you think it should be done, other than the Quran and Sunnah that will always lead to destruction. And that will always lead to a very bad ending, but being patient and we know that Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, you are living in a monastery, nobody nobody was in Allahumma sabihin that oh you have all you who have believed, seek aid and help in us Allah subhanaw taala with sub with patients and prayer. Indeed Allah subhanaw

00:53:37--> 00:54:21

taala is with those who are patient. So we should always demonstrate patience with Allah subhanaw taala and show Allah and other patients within ourselves, so that we can receive the blessings of Allah azza wa jal and the ease in that matter, and no matter whatever hardship that you are going through, always that there is a way out. When we get to Allah Who Maharajah we are Zopa whom in high school I have tested that Whoever fears Allah subhanaw taala then Allah azza wa jal will make a way out for them and will provide for them from where they never knew that provision or aid or help would come from. So as long as a person turns to Allah subhanaw taala completely without any turning

00:54:21--> 00:54:33

to their creation at all. It doesn't mean to that is not allowed for you because you you know, if you're ill, you're allowed to take medicine, you're allowed to go to the doctor, but when you go to the doctor, you are constantly making dua to Allah subhanaw taala to make this

00:54:34--> 00:54:53

you get good advice, the beneficial advice that is necessary for you, during your illness, that the medicine is given to you that inshallah other than medicine, the medicine is of benefit to you. Okay? So even though that you take the means constantly you have a relationship with Allah subhanaw taala

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

hoping that Allah will rectify the matter because you know, ultimately, it is only Allah subhanaw taala

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

Allah who can help you.

00:55:03--> 00:55:26

Also another benefit we take from the story of Yusuf alayhi salam is a troop a day or person who invites other people to worship Allah subhanaw taala never forgets their own duty, or their own responsibilities. And quite often you find that those people who are engaged in helping others can sometimes be neglectful of their own selves.

00:55:27--> 00:55:28

And so,

00:55:30--> 00:56:02

it is important to not only help others to benefit others, but to ensure that you have a good relationship with Allah azza wa jal, but also instill beneficial knowledge within yourself. So that you can ensure that remain steadfast. So that when you advise people, they see you as a person who is upstanding and you're not a person who is you know, waving side to side is important as a day as a person who invites people to Allah subhanaw taala that you have, first and foremost you start with yourself, you invite yourself teach yourself,

00:56:03--> 00:56:08

go to the people of knowledge, do things which are correct, and then you can

00:56:09--> 00:56:11

teach others and this is exactly what is in line with

00:56:13--> 00:56:13

sort of philosophy.

00:56:15--> 00:56:58

That Allah's point out he says, well also the internal internal if he hustles, that by time that man is at a loss in the living Ermanno exempts those who have believed which is which is your email is not based upon our your knowledge, your Eman is based upon knowledge. Well, I mean of solid, and that is good, righteous actions. So you have your knowledge, and then you have righteous actions, what else will will help and that you will then invite others to that truth that what you are acting upon that what you are doing yourself, what also be soft, and that you will also invite other people and teach others to be to be patient, because not everyone will agree with you. And especially when

00:56:58--> 00:57:02

you look at the stories of the prophets or Naima salatu salam, you find that

00:57:04--> 00:57:28

the people fought against them a lot of the time like Musa Musa alayhis salam, those the binaries, why they fought against them. So it's important that you continue on your mission on your journey, because those call us to Islam are following the path of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is a very noble and the most noble job that you can do. But nonetheless you need to demonstrate patience throughout this particular

00:57:29--> 00:57:55

journey that you take. So these are the main things that we want to just mention really concerning the story who has used the filing system and that really is a story that we can read again and again and the benefits are so many and it is such such a beautiful story. And it is something which even the other people of the Book Hello Kitab are aware of as well. So this is something that was

00:57:56--> 00:58:03

in whatever detail was mentioned in their previous books is a story that Allah subhanaw taala revealed and inform them of as well

00:58:06--> 00:58:25

as o'clock and check for explaining that. Brothers and sisters this is the Quran with Eman section of Ramadan with iman. Well, we are briefly going through Inshallah, some of the themes that we will be hearing about internet style we. So this is just number 13 In sha Allah. So chef moving on to the next Surah sortal hedge.

00:58:26--> 00:59:07

As you mentioned, it's it's really, it's relatively short, I should change it as far as not hedging all sorts of ideas for it. Right. Okay, so the next rule after that is sorted to right. Yes. Okay. And is that relatively short compared? Or is it Yes? Oh, yes, it is about 43 yet. Okay, so panda and the other swimmers before? Yeah, they're quite long. So let's hold back for a very long time. Yeah, they're long, very far like from you know, from 150 all the way up to 286. And then sort of rebuttal. Yes. And 200 and RM Iran and things like that. Yeah. So what kind of themes chef de Soto right actually cover? So Surah Tara as is known that that is the Meccan surah. Okay, and the main

00:59:07--> 00:59:52

theme with the MK Consor as and we may have said before that those chapters of the Quran which were revealed before the hijra, while the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was was in Makkah, the main themes in these particular chapters were focusing on the matter of Tawheed. And also a reseller, which is messenger ship of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and thirdly, to do with the earth era, these three main things. So number one, the uniqueness and the oneness of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, doing away with worshiping anything besides Allah subhanaw taala all forms of paganism and polytheism and idols, the the dangers of calling upon other than Allah subhanaw taala and secondly

00:59:52--> 01:00:00

is establishing the messenger ship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and thirdly, dealing with the earth era dealing with what what you

01:00:00--> 01:00:22

You're going to face in, in the hereafter. So this particular sort of starts by giving the evidence, immediately the hunter of the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala is he is the one who, who alone created the stars in the moon to the day in the night, the trees and the oceans and all kinds of vegetation and fruit. And he's the sole owner of life, death and benefit and harm.

01:00:24--> 01:00:25

Now, all of this

01:00:27--> 01:01:05

is to do with Allah subhanaw taala has Lordship, that he subhanaw taala is the creator of everything, because it's important that when we looked at the Quran and tried to ponder over the meanings in the themes of the Quran, why is Allah subhanaw taala establishing and telling us about these things with a view to what, okay, not only understanding one verse after the other, this is what Allah Subhan Allah wants us to understand, but the overall message, this is also very important. So here we find at the beginning of this chapter in Surah, Terada Allah subhanaw taala is talking about the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the sun and the stars and the moon and

01:01:05--> 01:01:14

the the, the the turning of the day in the night and the trees in the oceans and all kinds of vegetation. This is all as I mentioned, to do with Allah's lordship.

01:01:15--> 01:01:22

Now, the fact that Allah subhanaw taala created everything around us. And Allah subhanaw taala provides for us,

01:01:23--> 01:02:02

because He created everything meaning, everything that comes into existence, everything that we benefit from, meaning that Allah subhanaw taala, then in turn, is deserving of our worship. So this is the link between Allah subhanaw taala and His Lordship, he is the Lord of the universe. And at the same time, or the next point is that we will then therefore he is deserving of all worship. So we should single out Allah subhanaw taala with our worship. Now, so this was the beginning of the of the chapter also talks about the evidences for the resurrection and the accountability and standing in front of Allah subhanaw taala. And this was the one of the matters that the Moshe Keane found

01:02:02--> 01:02:17

very difficult and hard to believe in. And Allah subhanaw taala informs them that this rejection of the resurrection isn't something which is, is refuted completely, ie that you live in this worldly life.

01:02:18--> 01:02:26

How is it that you will not be brought to account in front of your Creator, so allowed people and push people to

01:02:28--> 01:03:06

to think about their existence, and to be accountable for their deeds. Because when you know that there is an earth era, when you know that there is a hereafter, you know, that you will be taken to account a person who disbelieves and rejects in the Hereafter, and thinks that there is there is nothing on the other side for us, then therefore, I can do what I like. If I get away with it, I get away with it, I can steal thieve or press do whatever I like. And then in the Hereafter I get away with it. There's no one's going to say anything to me. However, a person who believes in the Hereafter, then a person will be wary of what they're seeing and what they're doing.

01:03:07--> 01:03:13

Another important theme in this sort of idea is Allah subhanaw taala has placed with every single one of us

01:03:14--> 01:03:16

an angel and some of the

01:03:19--> 01:03:26

some of the responsibilities of the angels is to look after and preserve us, by Allah subhanaw taala has permission. So

01:03:27--> 01:03:28

Allah azza wa jal will

01:03:30--> 01:03:48

look after his creation in in different ways. So Allah subhanaw taala one of those ways is that Allah Allah, Allah created the melodica the angels, and nobody knows the amount of angels there millions and millions of angels panela a number which is beyond our understanding of Adam.

01:03:49--> 01:03:56

But Allah subhanaw taala sent with each certain people's angels to protect them from any from any harm. So certain things that

01:03:58--> 01:04:05

would have happened except that Allah azza wa jal protected us by sending an angel of Jupiter to help us from that that room.

01:04:06--> 01:04:12

Also, Allah subhanaw taala talks about that he does not change the state of people from good to bad.

01:04:14--> 01:04:49

From the bad situation to a good situation, unless they themselves change it through their actions. So many of us we see the situation of many of the situations sometimes we're looking at maybe on a smaller scale our family or our our community and we may complain about what is going on and how to change the situation. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us in Allahu Allah you don't maybe home that Allah's pound to Allah will not change the situation of a people have you will you be unfussy him until they change what is within their selves, one by one.

01:04:50--> 01:04:59

So if you look at the beginning of the verse, Allah subhanaw taala says that these people, there's no change for them, unless individually they change. So Allah says

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

addressed us as a group.

01:05:02--> 01:05:17

And then the solution is for us individually to change ourselves. So, when we look around we see on the television or we see on in the social media or wherever we happen to see the events that are going on around the world, we have to start with our own selves.

01:05:18--> 01:05:24

And as long as I mentioned to you and again at the end of sort of the use of and that is, you as an individual have to focus on yourself,

01:05:25--> 01:05:26

you have to

01:05:27--> 01:05:38

increase yourself with knowledge, have to establish worship within yourself. So that in turn, you can be a steadfast individual and then have a positive impact on on other people.

01:05:40--> 01:05:42

Also, Allah subhanaw taala in Surah, Rottier mentions

01:05:44--> 01:05:44


01:05:46--> 01:06:26

that falsehood or battle has been compared to the froth on the sea surface, which apparently, which will cover everything over the sea, and you may not even see the sea. This froth is like foam, it covers the sea. However, eventually that fades away. And so the example of falsehood is like that, that there may be times where falsehood seems to be, you know, everywhere. However, it's not something that will be everlasting. And that it is it will eventually that will fade away, and that the truthful believers have been paying compared to the have like gold and silver, which is firmly placed in the land and which is refined and shines, once it is sent through the furnace of trials

01:06:26--> 01:06:27

and tribulations.

01:06:28--> 01:07:02

So, you find that, as we find golden silver disowned in the earth, it may be covered by lots of other things, but only to extract that it needs to go through through the furnace to extract the goodness of that, and similarly trials and tribulations that as Muslims and OMA on a smaller scale or a larger scale that we will all go through, but the purpose of that inshallah Allah is to, is to purify us, to strengthen us, so that we remind ourselves, that the way out of the situation that we are currently in, is to turn back to Allah subhanaw taala. Now,

01:07:03--> 01:07:04

the next

01:07:06--> 01:07:09

point in Surah, which as I mentioned, is only 43 Is that

01:07:10--> 01:07:35

is that the people of Taqwa the people who have fear and God consciousness and the special people, that their qualities that they are mentioned in this surah and that they fulfill from those qualities that they fulfill Allah azza wa jal covenant, and that they do not breach their contracts, that they join their relations with whom Allah subhanaw taala has commanded them. And this is also mentioned in in saltiel Bacara.

01:07:37--> 01:07:53

And that they fear the Lord that they fear their accountability, they are patient, for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. They establish the prayer, they spend openly and in secret, out of the wealth that Allah subhanaw taala has given them and they repelled bad or evil with with good.

01:07:54--> 01:08:15

So these are important qualities, that the people of Taqwa that they will have and is good for us not to just read them once and move on but to ponder and think about each one of those. So fulfilling Allah azza wa jal covenant I establishing the obligations that Allah subhanaw taala is placed upon us. And then you don't breach and go against your contract. You don't go against what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded you with.

01:08:16--> 01:08:46

And that those people whom Allah subhanaw taala has told you to establish a relationship with, that you keep relationships with them. So as the Prophet sallallahu it was said, lawyer, the whole agenda toccata, that those who break or sever the kins of, of kinship, they will not enter the paradise. So your mother, your father, your immediate family and your family members beyond that, this is not allowed for you to cut relationship with them at all. In fact, people do that. It is a major sin. And it is unfortunate to hear that,

01:08:48--> 01:08:48

at times.

01:08:49--> 01:09:20

There's a dispute between two family members. And they say I will never talk to that person again. They've cut the relationship with that person, even though something may have happened between those two individuals but does not justify the person cutting the relationship. There may be exceptional circumstances but we're not talking about exceptional circumstances. We're talking about normal circumstances where you know people can do wrong to one another, but that doesn't justify them, cutting the relationship between between each other

01:09:21--> 01:09:32

and also that they fear their accountability. They are aware that Allah subhanaw taala will question them and ask them about everything that they did. So this is a very important characteristic or quality of those who have Taqwa

01:09:33--> 01:09:49

in contrast to the characteristics of the the wrongdoers the volume, that the break the covenant with the last panel to added that they go against what Allah azza wa jal has asked. They break the ties with the relationships with allies Virgil has commanded to join and they spread mischief on Earth.

01:09:51--> 01:09:59

And this is one of the main qualities of those who have gone against Allah subhanaw taala and that is that they spread mischief upon Earth.

01:10:01--> 01:10:35

Does that allow her and she also shares one of the next Surah yes is Surah hedger. Now the next one is actually similar to Ibrahim Surah Abraham Yeah. So was that all of the points from Surah? To rod? Most of the points Yes. Okay. And we actually have a caller on the line so we'll get the color and then see if you can also explain to us from Surah Ibrahim inshallah we'll continue after the collage. We'll take the quote Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah you are alive and dawn with iman. What is your name? And what is your question in sha Allah and Jazak Allah and for your patience?

01:10:37--> 01:10:39

My name is Matt, I'm calling from London.

01:10:40--> 01:10:51

To Zakka law firm about that I've met for calling in what would your question be in Sharla? My question is I bought the land long term at about two years ago. Yeah. For the purpose of to build a house my family

01:10:52--> 01:11:10

but the thing is, I put duct tape to the door isn't no oxygen active for your day? How supplement of ours because of because of a financial problem. Now that is balanced abroad is not in London. See? And the question is, do I have to pay the capital or not?

01:11:11--> 01:11:15

Okay, inshallah. We'll get that. We'll get that we'll get that question.

01:11:17--> 01:11:21

But then is abroad is not in London.

01:11:22--> 01:11:23

My family

01:11:24--> 01:11:56

yeah, we'll get that question to the Check In sha Allah. So Schiff, even though Robin sisters This isn't the time to get all of your questions answered in sha Allah, but we'll ask this question to the shift since he's come through it's not really related to the topic as well. But nonetheless because the brothers asked it and he was waiting patiently will get asked so shifts the brother mentioned he's bought some land the land is abroad. Does he need to pays a cut on that money? Even though the land is not with him right now? It's on the money or the land sorry on the land right yeah.

01:11:57--> 01:12:42

So yeah, there's no circuit I mean, as I said it's a land which intends to build a house for his family is known as a cat on that, okay, but he's not just he's not intending to sell it or anything like that. It's your own personal use. So there's no need for you to pay zakat on their brother just allow him does that allow friendship and shift if you if you could Inshallah, continue taking us through the brief themes inshallah. Through Surah, Rod and Surah Abraham Inshallah, yeah. So Surat Ibrahim is for me is a very beautiful surah and has some very, very beautiful topics and themes within them within the chapter itself. And it begins as do many of the chapters in the Quran with

01:12:42--> 01:12:47

the HydroFarm Ocata which begin with the join the letters and here it is Alif Lam, right?

01:12:48--> 01:12:53

Then Allah subhanaw taala as he at the beginning of Surah Al Baqarah tells us

01:12:54--> 01:12:58

that at the beginning was sort of Bukhara Wehrli Kalki tabula where you Buffy

01:13:00--> 01:13:09

who the little machete in that this is a book there is no doubt as a guidance for them. We're talking this chapter which is in Surah Ibrahim, which also is a

01:13:10--> 01:13:44

is a makansutra as opposed to Surah tillbaka I just it is a Madani chapter, Surat Ibrahim is a multi surah and Allah subhanaw taala begins with all authority by saying keytab own and Zelner who lake this is a book that we will reveal to you or Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Leto Khadija nurse Amina Zulu Murthy Elan normally but even your OB him ELS erotica, Aziz in hermit, that this book was revealed to you oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to take the people out of Lulu mat, to take people out of the darkness out of the

01:13:45--> 01:14:29

darkness of Cofer of disbelief of misguidance to the note to note that the light of Allah subhanaw taala is the light of guidance, but isn't your OB him by the permission of the Lord, to the path which is the path of the old one who's the old, honored the old priest? Then Allah Subhan Allah says Allah who led the law who Murphy semma 31 mirfield, then Allah subhanaw taala. Again, he established his authority and ownership over the whole of the universe. And then Allah subhanaw taala warns those who disbelieve in Allah Allahu Allah, that they will have a severe punishment. Those people who have chosen this worldly life over the earth era,

01:14:30--> 01:14:59

and that not only that they have chosen this world over the earth era, but also what they have done as tried to block the way of those who have believed. So this is one of the characteristics or the qualities of those who have disbelieved in Allah subhanaw taala. Then Allah Allah Allah mentions a very beautiful characteristic of all of the profits, while my Otto Sellner mill was ruling in Belize and he told me that Allah subhanaw taala did not send any Messenger in

01:15:00--> 01:15:04

that'd be Lisa Nicole Mihaela up and Ella home so that things are made clear to them.

01:15:05--> 01:15:45

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was an Arab, he wasn't an Arab, and was sent to the Arabs. And similarly all the Prophets and Messengers Alima salat wa salam o came before they were sent with the language of the people. This is why it is extremely important for us brothers and sisters that when we are giving our and explaining Islam to people who may not speak the Arabic language, we need to deliver the message of Islam in a way that they understand. Of course, their time will come to explain to people the importance of the Arabic language, the importance of understanding the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And also understanding the words and the Sunnah of

01:15:45--> 01:15:55

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. However, at the end, from the very beginning, it is important that you understand the foundation of the religion, and that must be in a language that that people understand.

01:15:57--> 01:16:35

So it's at times you can you know, you mentioned Arabic terms and then you don't translate those terms, or you speak in a language and then they're not, it's not clear to them as to really what is being said. This is a common mistake amongst many people, or many brothers and sisters when explaining the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah azza wa jal mentions in this particular chapter of Surah, two Ibrahim, that there are again, it's a Meccan surah. It focuses on the matter of towhid, the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala. It talks about the reseller, it talks about messenger ship, and of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and also the previous messengers, and also

01:16:35--> 01:16:37

talks about the resurrection.

01:16:38--> 01:16:48

So Allah subhanaw taala gives glad tidings of the gender to the believers, and warning those who turn away from that, that the penalty the punishment of the Jahannam lies in wait for those people.

01:16:49--> 01:17:00

Now what is very beautiful about Surah two Ibrahim, and that there are a number of chapters in the Quran, which are named after prophets themselves. For example, Surah to Eunice

01:17:01--> 01:17:51

Surah to new Surat Ibrahim Surah Yusuf, there are a number of chapters in the Quran, in which they actually named off the prophets themselves. This is one of them. And as we find as being the surah to Ibrahim, the story of Ibrahim Ali salaam, is actually mentioned partially within the story. And what this you do find in this particular chapter, is the many beautiful to us, that Allah subhanaw taala gave to us explain to us, but Ibraheem Alehissalaam that he used to make. Now we know that when Ibrahim Ali Salam, when he went with his family, he was commanded by Allah subhanaw taala. To, to go to, to Makkah, and MK at that time, was a barren land. It was not a land that anybody lived

01:17:51--> 01:17:51


01:17:52--> 01:18:38

But yet still Allah subhanaw taala commanded Ibrahim to take his family there, however, and his son is mine, Allah, He said, Then Allah subhanaw taala commanded Ibrahim to leave the land, and to leave his family there. He saw her husband walking away, and she called him and she called him and she called him and he did not respond to her Alehissalaam then eventually she said, Did Allah subhanaw taala command you with this? Then Ibraheem Alehissalaam then he turned around and he faced her. And he said, This is the command of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is when she responded with an amazing statement, which shows complete reliance on Allah subhanaw taala by saying, even in Allaha lane you

01:18:38--> 01:18:49

will be and then Allah subhanaw taala will not forsake us, Allah subhanaw taala will not leave us and then Ibrahim Ali Salam, then he continued on his journey.

01:18:51--> 01:19:13

However, Allah's Ibrahim alayhi salam, before he left he made many beautiful drawers that we find here in this particular chapter. And for the brothers and sisters who would like to go through to know where the numbers of the verses are concerning these drawers are that if you go to the Surah Ibrahim from verses number 35 onwards. So in these verses,

01:19:14--> 01:19:44

Ibrahim Ali Salam he mentioned the first door with called Ibrahim or a bridge alhaja but hartlebury Amina, oh Allah make this city a place of security. What you know Bernie, why Bernie and Buddha Lawson and keep me and my family away from the worship of, of idols, about being no one Oberlin NACA theorum meanness, Furman Tabby only for a new home in the woman I saw an ephah in NACA photo of him

01:19:45--> 01:19:59

and that, Oh Allah, many of these idols have misguided lots of people. That whoever follows me than he is for me. And whoever disobey is me then you Allah, that you are the most pardoning the most massive

01:20:00--> 01:20:42

For, and I think this is one of the most powerful verses that is made by any of the prophets that they came to teach their people and to bring them to Allah subhanaw taala didn't come to warn them and to just talk about destruction. Here, Ibrahim Ali salaam, says fermentable only for inhuman harmony that whoever obeys me then he is for me. He is a worship of Allah subhanaw taala woman Asani whoever goes against me, whoever disobeyed me, then Allah subhanaw taala is the Most Merciful. And this was a dua of Ibrahim Shia. This is followed on from Abraham where he asked Allah azza wa jal that, Oh Allah protect me from the worship of idols, because they have misguided so many people.

01:20:43--> 01:20:54

Yes. Well, what I find so interesting about this is the fact that Ibrahim alayhi salam is mentioning the worship of idols, and it's as if like, in this day and age.

01:20:57--> 01:21:17

You know, he's making dua for it, it means that much to him that he's making dua that Allah subhanaw taala keeps him away from you keep keeps him and his people away from that. Subhanallah it's a thing where nowadays, people the things that will make to ask for what this shows me is have changed as well. It's like nowadays, I don't know, but

01:21:18--> 01:21:40

I can't tell you the last time I heard someone making dua, that Oh Allah subhanaw taala, you know, protect me from schicke protect me from Cofer protect me from these things. But here we see Ibrahim and a Salam directly making a dua to Allah subhanaw taala, to protect him from shirk and his people from Schilke. So it's become a thing where like, is it? Can we say, chef that even with Diaz,

01:21:41--> 01:22:02

often when we make to us, it's often for a reason where we like, is for the dunya out to us or dunya based. Nowadays, a lot of people they say, you know, Lord, grant me this, or Lord grant me that and it's all relating to the dunya. But here we see a dua that's directly related to the Astra definitely, definitely. And it's important for us to, to have

01:22:03--> 01:22:42

agenda or to join both to have both make dua for the dunya is no problem, okay, and also the earth era, and this is one of the greatest tools that we find in the Quran, or have been earthy and if it dunya has an awful earthy earthy Hasina. Okay, in other binotto Allah give us the good of this life and the good of the hereafter and save us from the hellfire. But you know the feeling that we have towards Mecca. When you turn on your social media, your television and you see people performing, you know, tawaf around the Kaaba and if you happen to be there. It is though that you are drawn to that place. It is all your mesmerizing seeing that you should realize that also that Ibrahim alayhi

01:22:42--> 01:23:08

salam made dua, that this would be a place that the hearts that they are drawn towards Subhan Allah so Ibrahim Ali Salam make dua to Allah subhanaw taala that the people's hearts that they would they would go towards and it is mentioned here actually so I lost my sense of a burner. Lee will be masala to eat at Amina Narita we elect him or a burner, Li masala Oh Allah, allow them to be people who establish,

01:23:09--> 01:23:40

establish their prayer and allow their hearts from the people to whom we elect him that it goes towards them. It goes their hearts will go towards this place that place in Makkah. So you find all Muslims around the world Subhanallah are somehow attracted to this beautiful place. Similarly, we know that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam make dua for Medina, and to make it a haram to make it a sanctity make it a sacred place. And likewise, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam may draft for the people of Medina for Medina itself.

01:23:41--> 01:24:24

And likewise we find as Muslims, when they go to Medina, it is an experience like no other, that they have this feeling of wanting to go back to Medina, they talk about the calmness of Medina, they talk about the tranquility, the peace, the serenity, all of these adjectives you give in describing such a beautiful place. All of these are applicable to Almudena, Turner Bowie. So these are the heroes of the prophets concerning these two holy places. Sure what you know, one of the things brothers and sisters also that I find so, you know, inspirational about the story of Ibrahim alayhi salam is the fact that, first of all, when he was a young boy, he is asked, you know, he is someone

01:24:24--> 01:24:48

who Subhanallah appealed to his people with logic, he appealed to his people in a way where Subhanallah he actually, of course, his story, I'm sure many of us know it, but from when he was a young boy in it, it made sense to him, him seeing his family, him seeing all of the people worshipping a SNAM, which are outdoors. And it came to an extent in the life of Ibrahim on A salaam, where Subhanallah

01:24:49--> 01:24:59

it didn't make sense to him. So he acted. It was It wasn't I think we're Ibrahim Ali Salam was a person who just didn't make sense to him and he sat quietly. Now he was a person of armor. He was a person of action.

01:25:00--> 01:25:16

Subhan Allah, how did he act? He was a person when there was a day we know that it was like a day for them. That was like the equivalent of like a day of Eid SubhanAllah. So all of the people go out. And the story of Ebrahimian a cinema, I don't think it's given enough attention, but Subhanallah

01:25:17--> 01:26:02

so all of the people have gone out, and they've gone out, you know, and Ibrahim Ali salaam, he says, and this wasn't necessarily a lie, but he says Anna scheme. scheme is like, you know, someone can say that they're not Well, someone can say that, you know, I'm not feeling well. But it's a theme also, it was a thing where he made him feel unwell at the fact that his people were worshipping these idols, it affected him that much SubhanAllah. And this is him as a young boy as a child. Now imagine, all of the people have gone out brothers and sisters, and Ibrahim Ali salaam, he's there. And he goes into the house where they keep the idols, the bait, the place where they keep the idols.

01:26:03--> 01:26:20

Now they had a specific house for this and his father Azur was the one who would he would sell, he would sell these idols. Now he goes in there. And what he does is with an axe, he destroys all of the idols. And now after him having destroyed all of these idols, what does he do?

01:26:22--> 01:26:58

He goes, and he appeals, look, look at this, now pay attention to his brothers and sisters. What is Ibrahim alayhi salam doing? He's appealing to the logic of the people. He's appealing. So what he's trying to do is he's trying to make them understand. You see, sometimes when we're, when we're trying to explain things, we need to think about how it's coming across to the other person. You see, and this is one amazing thing that we see from the story of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that he was a person, that when he would speak to people, he would speak to them in a way that where they would understand he would he would see who he is speaking to, and okay,

01:26:58--> 01:27:43

this person understand things in this way. So he would speak to them in that way. So Ibrahim alayhi salam, just like the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he understood his people, even at that time. So he appealed to them. So what he done is he's here appeal to today, logic. So he put the acts around the neck of the biggest idol in the room. So when the people now they come back, and the people, you know, they think you know, what we want to celebrate, let's go and worship our idols. So the people they go into the house, and, you know, in the hope for them to find the idols, you know, perfectly fine. They can, they can worship them, etc, they see that all of the idols have

01:27:43--> 01:27:44

been destroyed.

01:27:45--> 01:28:14

And then it comes, it comes to the attention that, you know, there's one boy, there's one, there's one man, there's one child who speaks about these idols in a certain way. So they say that this is Ibrahim. So let's call Ibrahim. So they call Ibrahim Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam, he comes now. And what happens is, they ask him, Ibrahim, did you do this like, well, what's happened here? So Ibrahim sarcastically, he responds to them, and says, Why don't you ask him?

01:28:15--> 01:28:46

Why don't you ask him? The biggest one. Now, Ibrahim knew that the idols they couldn't help, nor could they harm. And the people knew that the idols they couldn't help, nor could they harm. And the people knew that the idols could not speak, nor could they understand. So they're looking at Ibrahima, they said, I'm like Abraham, what? What are you talking about? You're telling us to ask the big one. But you know, he doesn't speak he doesn't understand.

01:28:47--> 01:29:26

So Ibrahim and Islam, how did he appeal till today logic, he says you're worshipping these idols that cannot harm you. This is what he expressed to them. Of course, this is not necessarily word for word, what he said. But this is what he expressed to them, all of what I'm saying that he expressed to them that you're worshipping these idols, that can't help you. You're worshipping these idols, that can harm you. You're worshipping these idols, they can't eat, you're worshipping these idols, that when a fly comes and sits on the food that you give to them that they can't eat, they can't do nothing to that fly. So you're basically what are you worshiping, and you're worshipping these

01:29:26--> 01:29:29

idols, and you know what they're made of? They're made of stone.

01:29:30--> 01:29:37

So the people's response to this, it actually starts to appeal to some of their logic, and the people start to become angry.

01:29:39--> 01:30:00

And they don't like this. Because this is all that they used to imagine you being used to something and someone coming to you and actually expressing to you. Well, you know what, what you're used to and what you love doing so much is actually wrong. And they actually make you understand from your own logic, why it's wrong. It's gonna bug you so above the people of Ibrahim and escena
