Think about it as being part of six important things right? So the first thing is the Orion is the word of Allah. And that's something really powerful when we say the Quran is the word of Allah but Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks directly to me speaks directly to you. So the moment you are reading the Quran, and Allah says, Yeah, you're held Edina, Aminu, all you who believe all you who believe that immediately lets you know Allah speaking to me, I believe in Allah. Allah wants me to know something about him. And Allah says, Yeah, you're living in Aminu. All you who are believers do this or don't do this right. And Allah speaks directly to the believers. So it is meant to be something
that whenever you are looking through the Quran, that you look at the Quran as being a law being connected to you directly speaking to you directly. Number two alumina zelle. Allah Mohammed is given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It's not something that was men made. The Prophet didn't think about it himself. Nobody else could have wrote it for him. It wasn't copied from anywhere. This is a loss of Hannah to Allah speaking directly to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and indirectly speaking to us. So when Allah speaks to the prophets, I sell him and he says, you should do this, this and this. Then the prophets I sell them says, Hey, everyone, Allah wants
you to do this, this and this, do it with me. So when we pray, Allah says, get your head levena aqui masala, pray you should pray to Allah. And you say, Well, how do I pray? I wonder how do I pray. So Allah says, Have your love but also do it the way I ordered you to follow the example of the Prophet obey Mohammed Salah Lai Selim. So the Prophet said, when you pray, you face the Qibla you raise your hand you say Allahu Akbar, you read Surah Al Fatiha that's how we learn to pray, which is really important so you cannot take the photo and away from the Prophet Mohammed's I send it you can just say, Okay, that's it. I'm just going to follow the order and on my own, I'm going to read it and I'm
going to do whatever I think is right. You need somebody to be your teacher to teach you the Koran. And my job and sister Fawlty was job here with Elm Street veggie, she has this wonderful program with you guys is to teach you the photo and the way the Prophet taught us the Quran, Sunnah Allah and he was selling. So we said first the Quran is a loss, Allah speech, Allah speaking to us, number two, we said that it is given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number three and metabo dooby tilawat is that when you read the Quran, and it is an act of worship, so if you were to hold any other book, any other book, by you looking and reading that book, it doesn't give you a reward.
It doesn't you know, if you read the T h, e, the you know that word, it doesn't give you any reward with a lot. But when you read have that, and it's a word from the Quran, part of an if you read that word with the intention of worshiping Allah, it gives you for every lecture 10 has an add to the Prophet said even the beginning, Elliott left
me those three lectures and live Lam Meem each one of those letters is given 10 has an ad to Pamela I did 10 good deeds with Allah subhana wa Tada. So the Quran, it's the only book on Earth, that when you read it, you get a reward and have done a good deed in your relationship with Allah. Number four, the Quran is manette Geum has been sent about different moments and different things. It has so many different stories. In the life of the prophets, I said that it didn't come down to just one sentence or one book and it's like, here's the book, it came down over the whole life of the prophets I sell them as being the Messenger of Allah over his
life as the Messenger of Allah 23 years the portal and was given to him some live on a USA live. And that's really beautiful because it shows that there are moments in the Quran where you can learn something, then learn something again, then learn something again, it's good for you and I to learn and to continue learning the for an over a long period of time. I know some of you are probably learning to memorize the whole end. If you were to think how long did it take the prophets I send them to memorize the four and 23 years which is amazing, right 23 years to memorize the whole Quran by the prophets Allah Allah Allah
SLM, because that's how long it took for it to be given to the province is lm. So don't ever give up memorizing the Quran, don't ever say, Oh, I'm too old or I'm too young, you can always try to memorize the Quran, even if it takes you five years 10 years, never, never, never, never give up hope of memorizing the Quran, that should be a goal for all of us in sha Allah, that you can always and we can always keep learning the Quran. Another really important thing about the Orion is that the Quran is our ob, it was given to the prophets, I send them in the Arabic language. And that's really important, because the Arabic language is different to other languages, in that the Arabic
language, it doesn't grow. And it doesn't get you can't take away Arabic words. And you can't make new Arabic words, you can add words that are not Arabic, but they're never part of the Arabic language. They're never an Arabic word. So that means that the meaning of the origin is not able to be changed, and people can play around with it. What Allah said in Arabic is the four and but you can read a translation of it. But that translation doesn't mean it is the Quran, it means that it is what somebody understood from the Koran. And that's a really beautiful way of protecting the forehead. So I encourage all of you, you don't have to learn to speak and read and write fluently,
perfectly Arabic. But you should always try to learn to read really well the Quran, and try to learn some of the words that are in the Quran that will make you understand it a little bit better each and every time you read it and visited
the portal and is also 10 most have and that's the last part. So we don't we believe that the whole plan is complete with us nothing could ever be missing. The Orion doesn't have a missing word doesn't have a missing sound, everything in the floor and today is the same as the hall and was at the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So I thought I'd make that introduction to the plan. And I know you know all those things. But now let's speak about Jews. Number five, and I was so happy to hear from sister Fawlty MK that you guys are studying the Quran and you're doing a little bit and a little bit about each and every Jews, especially in the month of Ramadan to kind of
try to understand more What is this for Annabel? So the sooner that we're going to look at the first one we're going to look at today produce number five is called sorted and the SAT. And the SAT means it's about the women. Now the whole sorta isn't about women. It's more about justice. And that's a really important thing that a law speaks about justice by the a the surah is also titled women because at times, some of those who aren't treated fairly in the world can also be our mothers, our sisters, our daughters and wives. And it's important as Muslim men and as Muslims to honor all of the women that are found in our life. One of the best things about the prophets I sell them is that
he gave a he was given by Allah in Nepal and the way to honor ourselves and to honor our wives, our daughters, our mothers, our sisters, all of the women in society, those that are related to us and those who aren't. So super nice. I really have three important teachings. The first teaching is about being just about being fair, and about doing things that are right for the right reason. The second important part of surratt and Nisa is it is about showing mercy and compassion to others, especially those who are weaker, or who don't have the same strength that we have, and who needs a little bit of help. And the third part of Surah 10 Musa is a loss of power dialer speaks about those
who do not practice Islam, although they know that they should practice Islam. And as Muslims we have a word for that it's called windansea Poon are hypocrites and we hope Allah protects all of us from ever having a moment of hypocrisy in our life along mammy, may Allah protect all of us from that. So let's talk about the first part of sort of thing is that where Allah speaks about mercy, and Allah speaks about showing kindness and gentleness and assisting those who don't have so in this surah Allah speaks about the orphans, Allah
about those who don't have a lot of money, Allah speaks about those who were, you know, don't have a home for themselves. Allah speaks about those who lost their parents when they were young, that these are people that as Muslims, we should take great care in looking after them. Another important part of the surah is not just about mercy, but Allah speaks about being just, and being fair. And as a young person, I know some of you guys, there were moments. I remember when I was young, and I'm sure when you were, as you're growing up, there were moments where maybe somebody treated you in a way that wasn't fair. And you say, That's not really fair. You know, they didn't let me play, they
let other people play, how come they didn't treat me in the same way that I want to be treated or the way other people should be treated. And one of the most, you know, let me tell you a story. I remember one of my, one of my friends, when I was still in primary school, I was only in grade five, I was still young. I remember some of the kids they used to pick on him because he used to wear glasses. And they used to say something very unkind to him. They used to say for rides, because it's like you're wearing glasses, and it's like you have another pair of eyes. And kids used to tease them.
And you know, when when you treat somebody in a way that makes them feel bad makes them feel down. One of the ways that Ulla
one of the things that Allah Subhana Allah can do is that he makes you experience the same thing that you made other people experience. So if somebody makes somebody feel down about save their glasses, well, there might come a time where somebody is going to make fun of our height, or our hair, or whatever it is. So with anything and everyone always be fair. And bullying is something where you are always treating somebody in an unfair way, saying something that's not good about them, dealing with them in a way that doesn't give them space and happiness. And as a Muslim, Allah lets us know in Surah, Nisa that that is never acceptable for you and I to enter agenda, we must,
must not, must never hurt other people's feelings, and never let somebody's feelings be hurt in front of us. And we just leave them without saying anything. And when people we used to tease that friend of mine about his glasses, I did the wrong thing when I was young. And I said, I'm not gonna I don't want to get involved. Maybe they'll start teasing me. And then one day, I remember my dad, he told me, yeah, if you don't stand up for other people, other people won't stand up to help you. And then I then something happened to me. And you know, the people were bullying him, they bullied me. And I was like, Oh, I wish somebody would help me. And my friend who wore glasses, he came and
said, leave them alone. Don't do this. Don't talk to him in this way. And I thought, oh my goodness, he said that for me, and I didn't do it for him. And then I learned that very valuable lesson. fairness is something really important. Never let anybody be treated in a way that's unkind and you see it, and not help them. The last part of sorta techniques that that I wanted to speak to you about, is about not being true to our faith. That should come from our heart, in our relationship with Allah. So always have your E man with a lot in your heart. always believe in Allah always know that Allah is there that Allah sees us and knows us and loves us that if something bad happens, it's
not because Allah doesn't like us. It's not because we've done something wrong. But that's always part of a test in life. That Allah allows us to experience sad things so that when we are not sad, we can say and hemmed in Nah, I'm not sad anymore. I know what it was like to be sad. Now I know. I know that the blessing that Allah has given me
Surah Nisa is such a beautiful surah and I hope inshallah, that you will study it more and more with other people as you continue to get older. The next sort of that I wanted to talk to you about is a lot.
Yes, yes, you can ask a question.
that's a really, really good question. How can a person be fair to their siblings?
martial law, what's the what's his name? What's the name of that parrot?
shall live. It's good to hear your question. I haven't done enough. So siblings. It's really really important and the most important people
in your life are your brothers and your sisters. So we actually have this really important teaching for us as Muslims that my me and my brothers me and my sisters
are always supposed to be glued together, right? Nobody's going to be your junior year friend in your future and as you grow older, more than your brother more than your sister, and Allah subhanho wa Taala always emphasizes the relationships we have with each other, especially with our brothers and sisters. So the best way to be fair is to think if I had that happened to me, what would I want my brother or my sister to do for me? What would I expect them to do for me to help me when I'm feeling down or to support me when other people aren't treating me well, or to share with me when other people may not share? That is the expectation we always have. That's what Allah wants for us
to do as young people with each other and as we continue to get older superato to Allah thank you for that beautiful question. Beautiful parrot there Mashallah. Mashallah. The other surah
Yeah, yeah, no, I this voice was really different as well. I could see that. You know, Masha, Allah
hamdulillah. So I'd like to hear his questions. anytime he has more questions. He's always welcome to answer questions. Another the other sort of that I wanted to talk to you about was sort of either add salt and Mati that is a powerful, powerful chapter of the whole and it's the fifth surah of the Quran number five. So there's Sultan Fatiha Surat Al Baqarah surah. Al Imran would you would have studied Surah Nisa, which we spoke about quickly, and now sort of marry that and the story of sort of Dilma e that is a really really important story. It's a story about Prophet Isa Ali is set up. And as Muslims we love prophet Italia celeb Jesus Prophet, Italia celeb is one of the greatest
prophets of Allah. He's one of the five most important prophets of Allah. The first of them is Noah, Noah, and then there is Ibrahim Abraham, and then there is Musab Moses. And then there is Isa Jesus, that's the one we're going to speak about now. And then finally, there is Mohammed med sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best of all human beings and the best of all Prophet Jesus alayhis salaam, Allah made him to be assigned to all mankind have the power of Allah to create as He wills to do whatever he wants. And Jesus Alia Salaam, he lived at a time, where there was a lot of sickness in the world. And I know in many of our different places, and many are times you guys have been hearing
about this thing called COVID. And some people get sick and everybody's worried about we should be very careful, we wash our hands a lot, we make sure that we're always careful that when we sneeze, we sneeze into our elbows that we're regularly sanitizing using antibacterial making sure our rooms are super clean. And that when we go out if needed, we have to wear the protective things that we have to wear. May Allah keep all of us all of our families protected alone. I mean,
profit easily set up one of the things that he had, oh, can you see my cat there? Now that cat is such a beautiful guy. That's simit which means bagel in Turkish. I don't know if you can see him in the back there. I just hope he doesn't see our parents you might get hungry. Hopefully he's fasting as well. Right? In sha Allah. Oh,
I think they can make friends I think they can be
I think you need to hide I think you need to high for a few minutes.
You might see some it's younger brothers and sisters running around soon as well. They might jump around soon. They'd like to follow him everywhere. So if you see them, if you see them Don't get scared. They're just there to have a little bit of fun. So properties on a set of one of the cool things that Allah allowed him to do to show that he is a prophet and the messengers of Allah is that he could make you know, you know how you have playdough you guys when you have playdough you can make birds and you can make snakes and you can make little, little animals. Will he Saudis, Salah Prophet Jesus, he could make the shape of a bird. And Allah says in Surah Al Mati that he would make
To a law, and then he would
blow on the bird. And the bird would come to real life and be a real living bird by the power of a loss of kindness to Allah, and it would fly away and it would be a real bird. And another thing that he said, as a miracle that Allah gave them is that he could make do out for someone who was feeling not well, it could be that their eyes were not working very well, or their hearing was not very well, or they couldn't speak very well. And Isa would make dua to Allah and Allah would cure
allow them to speak better to hear better to see better. In fact, and this is something amazing, okay.
A Saudi as salaam could make to add to a law and ask for somebody who had died, to come back to life. And when they came back to life, that they could speak with other people and be with their family and friends again. And this was all from the power of Allah, not from the power of Jesus because he's just a human being. He's like all of us. He's a human being but he was one of the great prophets and messengers of Allah subhana wa Tada. Now so nothing Matt either.
Subhan Allah, it is a very, very amazing what and Now listen to this. Listen to this. One of the most amazing things about Italia Salaam is the main driver for Allah to bring down food from gender fluid from the sky for them to eat, and the food that came down from Jenna they could eat it and experience it so that they know that a loss of Hannah went to Allah is the one who is the provider of all good and the one who answers to have you can you do you guys know what kind of food there could be in genda? Anyone want to let us know what their thoughts are?
What kind of food do you think you can have in general? I see Tarik algebra he wants to say something.
A tree of
Yes, okay. So there's fruits and Jenna but is it the same like the fruits that we have here? Or is it different?
Absolutely different and the fruits that are named in the Quran you know when Allah says that there are fruits and agenda there is you know, team feeds for example, or there's a tune or you know, all of that means it has the name and time it doesn't have to taste the tastes of the fruits in Jenna are very very different. Anybody else know what other food there could be in general?
And the granite pomegranates mushroom
what other fruits Do you think there are? Is there
one other fruits?
Yes, pomegranates are found in Jenna Mashallah, what about drinks? What kind of drink it will there be honey? Anybody know? Put your hands up and I can see on the screen? Will there be honey? I shall I see a lot of hands up. What about milk?
Yeah, Mashallah, what about water? Now? Is it going to be the same kind of water we have here or milk that we have here? Or honey that? No The answer, of course is no. This is from a place in Jana. It is very, very, very different to what we would have in the dunya although the names are the same so that we can kind of imagine it, but it's not real. It's not real like the ones we have in the dunya It is something totally different. And a lot tells us in the Orion level Maya order fee her whether they dalmunzie you will have anything you can wish for anything you can imagine and Jenna and I will give you more and more and more than you could ever dream up. Let me tell you about this
really amazing heavy. Alright, now I want everybody to pay attention. It's a really, really cool thing. Mussa Prophet Moses asked Allah
and he said, Oh Allah, what will the poorest, the one who is the last person to enter agenda? The lowest person agenda what will they have agenda? And Allah says oh Moosa, it will be a man who will enter agenda after everybody else has entered gone in. Allah will let this person go into agenda. And he will look at me or say, Oh Allah, there's no room for me. I can't find any space. Allah will make it look like it's totally full. And Allah will say, Well, listen, I buddy would you
Be happy. If I gave you the kingdom of a king. Could you imagine being like a king? And the person said, Oh Allah, that would be great. And Allah said, I will give you one kingdom, another kingdom, another kingdom, another kingdom, five kingdoms. And when Allah said to the person, you will be like a king for five kingdoms. He said, Oh Allah, that's amazing. Allah said, I'll give you five kingdoms and 10 times its amount, meaning the last lowest person in Jeddah, the one who has the least place in genda, has 1550 kingdoms of what the kings of this world had. You know, have you ever seen those amazing castles and done a history project about some of the pharaohs and the kings and the gold and
all the things that they had in the past? Allah says to us in genda, that the lowest person agenda will have 15 dips, but there's something else. You never get sick, you never get tired, you never get sad, you never get worried. There, you never have to go to the bathroom or the toilet. You never get a tummy ache. All of that is not found agenda. And more importantly, that in Jenna when ever you want is given to you, by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, may Allah subhana wa to Allah allow all of us to be in Jenna with our Prophet Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the story of Jesus of Isa in Nepal and is a really beautiful story. It tells us about the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala for
Jesus, and how we can have great things to aspire to and to achieve and to be blessed with May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah bless all of us and all of you. I really love meeting with you and I'll hand you over to Sister politeama maybe we can get some more questions and other things that if you want to ask something I can be with you for another 10 minutes in child law. And I really love meeting all of you guys. I hope you continue to learn so much more about the floor and on Elm Street. And that you can have me visit you again in child law. I hope you enjoyed your time with me said I'm on a gum
while he does that the love
Yes, what's your question?
Yes, the kingdoms of the agenda. You know, Allah says Jenna is bigger than all of the heavens all of the earth. So could you imagine this earth it fits all in one little place in gender. Gender is so big for so many people for so many things and I pray that all of us our agenda together schambach
Masha Allah, Masha, Allah.
So guys, do you guys have any questions?
You can raise your hand and I could be killed? Yes. 100 am what is your question? from someone who said, sell Islam
on their mind.
Like next month is my dad's birthday. So we were going to lay down get us by statute of like, what is
permissible? Yeah, so as long as the statue is not something that people are worshipping, it's not like as bad few other people worship or anything. There's nothing wrong with that in sha Allah. It's not meant to be something that is a representation of a god or something like that. So those are things that are fine in sha Allah, and I hope your father has a wonderful, wonderful birthday in sha Allah and that you get him a really nice present as well with that. Dad's like, really nice commodes hint hint?
Hello, hi. Raka that was a nice question. And it's so it's so hard for me to see how you're so concerned about doing things the right way of pleasing Allah, Subhana, Allah, Masha Allah.
Anybody else would like to ask a question, this is your chance. This is your opportunity. I see. Tarik and Ibrahim have a question.
Yes, but if you have a question, what other animals are their sides?
Greenberg words in Ghana. So Allah Subhana Allah tells us that there are many different creations that are going to be in genda some that we've never heard.
Never Never seen and you can ask for some of the animals that you love in the dunya. So you can ask for something that you had and it could be that you have a pet that you really loved and you want them to be in Jannah hopefully my summit can be one of those ones that can have a place with us in January in sha Allah right you can ask for those who you love level Mallya share owner for you whenever you wish for can be given to insha Allah and maybe you might even make up your own one you might think of something that you want yourself that you can kind of design in that way in sha Allah
panel on there are no limits to 10 that show when we all get there
any other questions? Sorry, did you have one more question?
Yeah, one more
houses within the move from golden diamond diamonds and precious stuff. Yeah, so the prophets I send them said in Jenna, that some of the houses are made one brick of gold, one brick of silver, and the cement between the bricks is perfume. What a beautiful place to live.
I think sikita has her hands up Yes.
so some of the powerful lessons you can take from sorta tilma either, is that Allah Subhana Allah wants us to be ever sorta thinness at fair and be compassionate and merciful. always speak the truth and always protect other people from sorta tell Matty that Allah wants us to always put our trust in Allah, that he's the one who makes everything happen. It's not Jesus who creates the bird. It's not Jesus who brought the dead to life. It is the power of a law that can enter our door and make things happen in our life. And any time you have a need, anytime you need something, you make dua to Allah and he is the one who can assist us in that.
I see. I see Suleiman
and sumaiya I think I have a question. Is it to me Sulayman? Yes, and to me, I have
a question. And I know that I'm allowed to wear it all day.
Yes, men will be allowed to wear gold and silicon Jenna, we don't wear men are not allowed to wear golden silk in Virginia. But the golden gentlemen the silk agenda is not like the golden silk here. It is an amazing creation from Allah. It is better than anything we can ever imagine. And hope for
good question. Thank you. Thank you. Does that Colossus and event any Any other question?
Other questions? Well, let me be clear right now you guys have been out we got one from below.
Why aren't allowed to wear gold? Alright, so that's a good question. And some things Allah said these are, these are unique for women, Allah wanted to treat women to something that men cannot have. So that's one way to look at it. You know, some things we're allowed to do, that our sisters can't do. And there's some things that our sisters can have that we can't have. So it's a way of Allah subhanaw taala, giving them something special that they can enjoy, that we don't have and can enjoy now, but we can enjoy it later. Another reason is Allah decides to put a limit on something. And when Allah decides that we just have to obey, even if we can't really say, I really, I really
wish I could do that. It's like the tree in genda. For Adam, Allah says, Don't eat from that tree. But there's so many other trees, Allah gave us so many other beautiful things. So when Allah limit something, it's not because Allah wants to make us upset, is that Allah wants to test will we listen to what he ordered or not? And that's why as men, we don't wear gold, we don't wear a silk and that's a blessing that Allah has given our sisters and our mothers. Mashallah.
Zach alafaya for that question below. I learned so much from chef to
let visit maybe one more question. One more question in chum.
Okay. See Anybody? Anybody have a question? I see. Tara has the last question for us. Go ahead Tarik in the brain. What are the rewards
that love gives for the people who fast martial law? That's a very good question. It's very relevant question. So the
first days we cannot limit the reward. That's the best reward of fasting that there's no limit. So the better you fast the better you are with your behavior, the better you are in how you speak with other people, the better you are in reading more Koran in Ramadan and doing some of the prayers in the night. Even if you can't go to total week in the magic you should pray a little bit extra. The more Suna prayers you make after you know before so often fetch or after. And before it's a lot of thought, the more value you add, it is a reward that is without a limit you can get more and more and more and more reward, the more effort you put with Allah subhanho wa Taala. But those who fast
they will enter from a gate from a door to genda that nobody else can enter except those who fast it's called out era yet another powerful lesson. A powerful reward for us in Jenna, is that we will never be hungry and thirsty again. Because we experienced hunger and thirst in our life. I see jumaane has got a beautiful little bird. They're a little parrot or something that's climbing all over her chair. I hope my stomach doesn't see that you'll get hungry.
Does that call our fair share. So thank you so much as FFA for honoring us on Elm Street st and blessing us with this opportunity.
So much hamdulillah thank you so much everybody. You can all unmute yourself and say does Appala fi in one voice. Let's do that.
It's a pleasure to speak
that I want to come Santa Monica
