We pray in this blessed month of Ramadan, that Allah His generosity remains with us that his blessings continue to rain down upon us, that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allows us the honor of maintaining a presence of righteousness of piety of good that we can continue to remain upon a path of truth and lead our families to that which is prosperous in this life and in the next along. I mean, I pray that Allah Subhana Allah makes easy for you and I our journey, then Allah subhana wa to Allah except in the month of Ramadan, our fasting, our prayers that were standing before him in the night, that Allah Subhana Allah makes us

00:06:24--> 00:07:04

from me noon, and those who are true believers unto him subhana wa tada once again a beautiful rendition and craw by our brother, a model Katia model, a healthy affair, where he's reciting to some of the Ayad from Salt and what we know and this is our second to four sessions that we have throughout the month of Ramadan. I'm honored hamdulillah to contribute to the wonderful efforts of mabie and the wonderful contributions that they have made for the United Kingdom and for the European Muslims in general, and be able to assist them even though I am far away from them. Subhana Allah physically, that our hearts and minds are all calling towards the student in the tradition,

00:07:04--> 00:07:46

and that is what unites us, irrespective of our times and place, and our localities. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant you all success, Allah amin, sorta Tell me noon, we've kind of given a little bit of a background to it, you can go back onto the Facebook page, mind and Maggie's and others and be able to kind of reflect on some of the messages. It is one of the early revelations given to the prophets, I send them in mechanika, Rama before the Hydra, some of the earlier Matt talked about second third year of the messenger ship of the Prophet Mohammed. So I send them that some of the parts of this surah are really early revelations in the life of our w Muhammad

00:07:46--> 00:08:30

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we've got up to in our discussion when levina homeless zucchetti feridun a number for Allah Chronicles called the F la Hammami known that all people can have a relative success, but those who will be most successful are the believers. Indeed, the greatest success is for those who have a man and have distinguished it through these characteristics and others that are found in other sources. But these are that identifying characteristics. Another sort of that has a similar list is in salted marriage. May Allah give us an opportunity to discuss it with you at a future date in sha Allah. And as we go down the list we see that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Dena

00:08:30--> 00:09:13

Humphrey Salatin, Hachi rune, he doesn't speak about prayer. But he speaks about humility in prayer, about concentration in prayer about freeing one's mind from distractions and bringing one body to stillness, and getting one over oneself over to their maker. In that moment, we're living in a home and in love We are already doing that their natural state of life is to turn away from frivolity and from things that are of no benefit to them, and to others, when Latina homeless catifa alone, and they are those who give of their cat to others. And I want to pause here for a second, I want you to know that these two great Pillars of Islam so Allah and zakka have not yet been legislated in the

00:09:13--> 00:09:58

way you and I practice them. So there's a cap that is spoken of here is to purify your wealth by giving it to others, but the dictate of how much to give when to give in the conventional find the lies system of zeca that you and I appreciate, did not occur until later on in the messenger ship of the prophets, I send them equally we know that Solange in its five ritual prayers as you and I know it to be had not been constituted upon the prophets, I send them until the day of Surat when Mirage, which is years before the revelation of the surah. If the understanding of their own amount of Tafseer is correct. How do we reconcile this? Well, it's very important to know that so Allah has

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

always been a foundation.

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

Have the life of any surrender and submit her to Allah. And that's all that the prophets I seldom performed is not a Salah that is unlike the one we pray now. So the one that was taught to the prophets I send them but the regimented times the opportunities of prayer, the congregational construct of it, that then that is performed, that F comma that is performed, those kinds of ritualization that are added to the context of the Salah came after, but the obligation for a person to take pause in their day to place themselves in a moment of standing before their Lord, bowing down to His Majesty subjugating themselves in sudo. to him was an essential taught to the prophets,

00:10:48--> 00:11:32

I tell them by jabril early on in the message, and he taught it onto a Sahaba we know that the Salah was preformed by gibreel Alia Salaam in front of the prophets, I send them any lead, I want to be in prayer. And then the Prophet led the Sahaba in prayer there after teaching them the convention of the Salah, the fatty and the ritualization. that come in addition to it would be added on as they would become revealed to the prophets I seldom, similarly is a cat with something that even predated Salah in a sense, where Allah subhanho wa Taala, he says, are at Levy, you can reboot with Dean for that he can let you do it earlier to your team. Do you see those who turn away from the orphans,

00:11:32--> 00:12:17

they are the ones who are the truth deniers of faith, meaning that there was this concept of purifying yourself and giving yourself and legitimacy before Allah through your assistance of others, in particular, the neediest in in society those who were caught off and mess at Keene and those who were a tan in the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. It was send him to early message in Mecca and mocha Rama, so don't find that there's a variance between the word salah and zecca, although they were revealed in their conventional completed ritualized sense for us there after Fatone, Allah subhanho wa Taala says they are those who pay there's a car, they are those who

00:12:17--> 00:13:06

give, there's a cap. And the word fatty who means that it is an active process. It is something where it's not passive. It's something where they are on the search, you and I should be remaining on the search for looking for opportunities to purify our existence, to cleanse our wealth to purify our society through the assistance of those who require it under the dictates of our legal principles and our mandate as Muslims, that is something that becomes an active process fast, right, you got to get going, you got to get moving, you got to get looking for opportunities, it is not a burden that somebody has to call you towards. It's not something where it is an expectation that

00:13:06--> 00:13:48

people got to drag it out of you that you're holding on to it. And when Allah Subhana Allah describes people holding on to it, that they are hoarders, well, that they have this show the word shocking there, but Klingons were two things come together to be stingy, and to be hateful, you know, having bola in your stinginess, you don't want to give it because you don't like to give right? What I did, I'll tell em for sure. Sometimes human beings have this capacity I want to hold on, and I hate to give up anything. Allah says the opposite is the condition of the believers. I want you to also consider the context of these Ayad is a slap meant to be a slap in the face of the

00:13:48--> 00:14:31

unbelievers who define success materially and non metaphysically and spiritually. And this is a slap in the face of the believers to wake them up. It's like Allah subhanaw taala saying, wake up. Don't keep looking at these people who have been given the dunya by Lady Salah who failed our federal team in her life, they have nothing in the afra don't turn your attention to the hotel hire to dunya the beautification of this worldly life, because you have something more precious called the F lahab. And Feroz Yanni alfalah. When fella who will tell us the truth, his success is going to come from the hard work and the spend you make in this life that will give you this success that cannot be

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

attained by the material in the next slide. So I want you to keep that in your background thought that Abu lahab Abu Jad Abu Abu Jen, these people would scoff upon the prophets I send them in the believers whose wealth would dwindle because they entered into Islam. They would be boycotted because they entered into Islam, people wouldn't trade with them, buy buy from them, sell to them at you know In, marry from them or out

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

Give them in marriage to them on account of them having come to the purity and the submission of Allah. And therefore this was seen as a loss in society a loss of prestige, a loss of status, a loss of political power, a loss of economic growth aloft a loss of their, you know, personal estate. And now you were seen as being an aggressor, even though you were in a passive state of faith up in that point for the first 13 years of the Dow of the prophets I sell them so Allah wakes the believers up Don't you know you are the truth, truly successful pod f lahad. Don't you know you've attained to that success, and that word f Lucha it's not a future tense. But it is something present and past

00:15:47--> 00:16:35

that in the past, because of what you've done, you've gained the success that you have and you're going to see the past tense being worked throughout a lot of this as a lot of speaking to people in the present reality, to show them that what you do it's gain is not always immediate in lab. And then Allah says, When Medina homely Farrugia him half a boon I in number five, there are those who guard their photos, their chastity, literally guard their private parts. And this of course, is not meant for men alone, but for females, as well as half of the word happy VA to guard something, it means that you are aware of the consequences of not guarding it. So you, you you, you have a

00:16:35--> 00:17:21

security, because you know, if you are not secured, you will be impressed and there will be something that is going to be lost. So the one who is have is not doing it just out of the goodness of their heart. It's because they actively know that there is a danger that is present. So in your mind, as a believer the submission that leads you is you must be on guard, because if you're not on guard, you've already fallen. And therefore the context as it relates to Xena as is in this area, and followed you here is speaking about Xena in its in its greater sense. Allah subhanho wa Taala and Xena is any sexual action that is not legislated in Islam, any act that is of a sexual presence

00:17:21--> 00:18:05

that is not permitted within our Islamic tradition, whether of self induced or with another partner, whether something that is I legitimately witnessed within society and accepted in that sense of morality, but is seen as immoral in our tradition as Muslims may be moral for other people. But we have a standard that requires HIV. And I want you to kind of think of that in the present time. You know, most sometimes brothers, they kind of get carried away. I can't speak about from sisters perspective because it's brothers who have greater access to so sometimes your brothers say some patent law chef, you know, sometimes it's such a fitna, you know, Chef gets to be a fitna with some

00:18:05--> 00:18:55

of the attire and you know, some of the things I want you to know, this idea is revealed in the context of Mecca, where nudity was this standard was much more common, and able to be viewed and sexual liberation in that sense of sinful liberation, sexual promiscuity was far greater than what we know it today. So you can even look into this idea of an Imam and Bahati where I should describes, you know, the concept of infidelity and, and pre Islamic poetry of the ignorant era of Ajay Leah. It's some of the ludas filthiest stuff that you can appreciate. You know, marriage at that time wasn't that you married into one man's home, but you married into his tribe which gave you

00:18:55--> 00:19:37

don't write to other people to you, not just that man but other men. Subhan Allah so there was this is sexual perversions that was a standard in those ancient worlds in ancient cultures. And Allah says, No, that's not what we do. We stand on guard, we have a different belief and a different way of showing our submission to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in that sense. So you know, Allah says that, you know, we know in the sooner that when people would come to perform Umrah they would remove all of their clothing. So at any point in time as you came close to the Kava, there were people who were completely stark naked, who were a woman that kind of saw that to him and del Valle de la mocha

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

and a book out was there. They were clapping and whistling and moving around in their state of nudity around the Kava, and that's where Allah subhanho wa Taala says in them and which rakuen and Niger's there there was the impurity of the unbelievers coming towards the cabin must come to an end in sort of bara tober fella yet holy Majid al haram they cannot enter into and measure the Koran the sacred month.

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

In that state in that attitude with that vulgarity as they used to mean by the army him had that from the moment after this year after that Hajj and that was a declaration recited by the from sort of the Toba at the direction of the Prophet Mohammed. So I send them so this will have at the time of the prophets, I send them there was great license for them, they had a great ease for them, to be able to move forward and to go and find, you know, a sexual partner if so needed and Allah says no,

00:20:32--> 00:21:05

that becomes important for you and I in our day in context, the impetus is upon you and I to be restricting of that which is haraam. That which is not permitted, is something that becomes a self preserving, Lifeline that you hold on to, and you don't do it just because of fidelity to your spouse, but you do it for fidelity and love for yourself before Allah Subhana whom want to add, when levena homely for rhodium happy Luna Illa Allah as wedgie him.

00:21:06--> 00:21:55

The only permitted permissibility that was construed for them in that time is upon your spouse's. And the word as wedgie him is meant to be male, female, right, so a female with her husband and a male with his wife or wives. This was the construct that was given to them. I will never medical a man whom, or that which their right hand had power over. And in that time when these verses were revealed early in Mecca, many of the societies in that time they had female bonds, women who were seen as slaves, and they were there to care for the home and the livestock, but they also were permitted sexual rights for them. And that was initially something that was legislated. This is the

00:21:55--> 00:22:03

standard opinion amongst many of the books of tafsir. But if you look a little bit further, you can also see that that

00:22:04--> 00:22:46

statement is something that is actually quite insightful, in that Allah Subhana, Allah makes an open declaration and puts a line in the sand of what's permissible, what isn't. So that means that in society at that time, it wasn't just limited to somebody who had rights to somebody who I had some power over somebody who I'd responsibility for a man look at a man no means as long as I dominate you, but it means I'm also responsible for you in that sense. But back in that time, whether you were responsible or not, people were promiscuous and I give evidence of the Hadith of the Mammon Buhari. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, it's described in this era of Jay

00:22:46--> 00:23:28

Haley, yeah, that a woman would raise a red flag at her tent, and she would be visited by a number of men. And once they had come to know her carnally, and she finally carried child, she would put a different color flag that meant nobody could visit. So people were just coming in and going out. And then once she gave birth, she would choose for many of the people that had known her who she wanted to be the father of that child. That was the concept of fidelity. And that's why you found in that guy, Haiti, they would bury their daughters alive, rather than have them be subjugated to that type of behavior. It's an inexcusable state action. But that was the rationale that they believe that

00:23:28--> 00:24:14

their daughters would be transformed into angels, or becoming servants of God inside their graves, and they would make them into deified beliefs. What are we do below him in Valley, may Allah protect all of our daughters and women for Inna homayoun romelu mean, those who fulfill their sexual intent with their spouse, then this is something where there is no blame upon them because it is in a in a relationship of responsibility. For many devil wa adeleke, the one who seeks beyond this fella eco homeowner are doing they are those who have become transgressors. The word I do and usually means aggression against others, he routes aggression against your own self vulnerable, and for some, it's

00:24:14--> 00:25:00

an aggression against, you know, your fellow human being because the likelihood of you transgressing that meant you were dehumanizing another person, you were taking something where you did not have a responsibility to them, unjustly. And Allah put that as a statement in the ad, which shows you something very unique in that era and humanity and all that which is before it, that this was something that brought about a change to the status of women and their entitlement to make their choice as to who could know them and who could be with them and who they could reject in that regard. Because the mandate of Allah was that you would be a transgressor in

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

Any non responsible relationship that wasn't sanctified in the light of the Quran when levena homily amanar to him whadda him or when the next statement is about a manner. And then to him is a plural exaggerated plural sentence. It's not when Latina home lil Amana add trust or a types of trust. It's a man at a whatever they've been entrusted with. It could be a secret, it could be property, it could be knowledge, it could be whatever it is that you've been given that people hold you accountable for having something that is a value that is not meant to be shared, not meant to be thrown away that is meant to be guarded. And then that comes from the word a man which means secured

00:25:48--> 00:26:02

and guarded. Why didn't I have to is a vow and a trust and a covenant something that's one over by the tongue. So you make I had to because we've made a pact, we've made a deal. We've signed a contract around

00:26:03--> 00:26:17

the word lie, it's synonymous with a shepherd, somebody who is standing at attention to look after their belonging so look at all the words now that require responsibility, or our own happy rune

00:26:18--> 00:27:02

f Lucha which is like a farmer, somebody who's responsible and looking after the land, all of those words that we have looked at, they put upon us self responsibility, the famous Hadith of the prophets, I send them a foundational hadith of our Deen couldn't know Qumran. Each of you is raw. Each of you is responsible. Like you are shepherding something local, local mess all on unreal, a Yeti, and each of you will be accountable for what you have a responsibility over. It's a powerful statement where Allah Subhana Allah speaks about the importance of covenants after speaking about guarding our chastity, guarding your chastity is your responsibility to yourself, fulfilling that

00:27:02--> 00:27:51

Amana is the responsibility to humanity. So Pamela, when we speak about modesty, it becomes important for us to kind of look at the modesty that is internal, which is the modesty of guarding our privacy and our private state. And then our public image which is guarding our duties and relationships with others. It's no coincidence that one of the great nicknames of our Navy Mohammed Salim was a slob. I mean, the truthful one, who always fulfilled his mnr to always fulfilled his trust sal Allahu Allahu Allah he was lying to yourself. prophets I send them says in authentic hadith is to munafo. The sign of a hypocrite are three in one rewire for signs. There are four

00:27:51--> 00:28:00

litmus tests either. It told me not Han when they are trusted, they will be betrayed. way that

00:28:01--> 00:28:45

I had that flf when they make a vow and a pledge they do other than what they made as a promise. When either I had that you know when they made that but they they betrayed what he that had that that kind of that when they speak they are dishonest way that to mean that Han and when they are given the trust, they betrayed the final one of the four. So when they speak they lie when they are trusted, they betray when they make a pledge, they do not fulfill it carry out what they promised. What either ha summer and when they are in dispute, fragile, it's like they are explosive in their demeanor you you are shocked by the words they use the habits they perform the actions that they

00:28:45--> 00:29:00

that may come out of them when they quarrel with someone, they exceed a limits of decency. And you're shocked How could somebody speak in this way, act in this way lose such control over their emotion and their standing. What's unique, of course about those four things

00:29:01--> 00:29:46

is that they're all earned or destroyed by the tongue. They're all things that are requested. So if you look at the structure of these ads so far, Allah Subhana Allah wants us to psychologically submit ourselves as believers and understand we will be successful even if we have lost in the dunya there is gain in the dunya and alcohol. Don't look at the material alone, but there's more than the material. Number two, your humility internally in your prayer is the greatest indicator of your near miss and the riddle of Allah upon you in your life. Number three, is that it becomes important for you as a believer as somebody who has faith that you consider the importance of being distinct from

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

that which is distracting you from good, and that which will make your heart agitated. Be careful in your relationships with others, contain your sexual energy in a way that is positive and put it out.

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

That which is positive, and do not go and cross the transgressions against others and fulfill the trusts that are given to you because you've earned it through request or through convincing, but also that when you have promise you carry on with it as one who will be accountable for it in front of society, but more importantly in front of Allah, then Allah uses the word slaughter again, when levena and this is this well is a wildland was, it is a continuation, but it is also a while that signifies importance in this regard. And also it's Allah saying and also but and also as important home my last photo at him upon their prayers, and Allah uses this exaggerated plural getting sanoma

00:30:50--> 00:31:03

to him for the duration of their life, you have a loon they are guarding once again we find that word guardianship, we find that word guardianship responsibility. What does it mean to have

00:31:04--> 00:31:19

it in our context and time to be guarding of its prayer in the guarding of the prophets I send them at that time before the five regimented prayers is that you were consistent in your fulfillment of it, even though it was not requested?

00:31:21--> 00:32:02

You know, moments of requests that you were always fulfilling this or that. And this was seen in the demonstration of the profits, I sell them success for years. And when people would be upset at the prophets prayer, you know, Abu janhvi hated to see the prophets I tell them praying near the Kaaba. And you know, I either Ludhiana I've done in the Salah, you see the one who tries to prohibit you from praying, don't ignore him at the end of the selection of verses of surah Allah Allah. Allah says ignore him was because God authentic the more to do the closer you draw to Allah that closer you will come to your Creator to your maker, the more you will be fortunate and blessed in that

00:32:02--> 00:32:51

regard, Allah eco homosexuality tool. The ones who have these seven characteristics will be those who inherit Yeti through and Latina Yeti through an El Faro that will sell home via Holly Dune. They will inherit the paradise as their own and remain in it forever. What is this weirdest in the hadith of any mammal the magic from Abu hurayrah Allah and hope prophets I send them set for every human being that is created there are two mathcad two places two seats to two abode to two real estate plots. One in Jeddah one in jahannam fee the dollar now if you enter Hellfire, your place in Gemini is vacant where tilicho multigene natural or if two more her such Allah says here is another level

00:32:51--> 00:33:38

of genetic that you gain as a place of inheritance meaning one that you work for and one that is of generosity By Allah, women do need him Gen attend. Allah says in Jenna, there will be two gardens not just one that you've earned and worked for, but the second one that is given to you out of the mercy of Allah at minimum. So every believer at minimum has two beautiful settings in general to infidels, may Allah mink has the highest of levels or in jedna. In its generality, you will have as minimum two places but to Han Allah there are those who will die for Allah YZ Utila whom in fogli. Allah increases by his blessing, for whom He wills May Allah allow us to be inheritors of taneycomo

00:33:38--> 00:34:25

Eugen net to let you all if you will have May Allah give us many, many places in Jenna from from those who did not do and live upon a righteous path yabby through natural fear those This is one of the places you hear that word filter that was and so pound Allah for those is not just mentioned in the Hadith of the prophets, I send them but it's here in the Quran alpha delta as in the authentic hadith, it is the highest abode of Jenna. And there are levels in Jannah. Inside the seven heavens of gender, the seven levels of gender, between each of them is in the knowledge of Allah. But in between each of those seven major levels there are other levels that are found there in the highest

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

of them is infidels, and the ceiling of infidels is the outage of a rock man. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah Allah was nearness to the ultra rock man. Now authentic hadith Emily my Muslim that there is no greater blessing in Jenna, then another either YG or a be him then to be able to look upon the face encounters of our Lord Suppan, who were to add one after the Hakuna incense, Allah then transitions and Allah Subhana wants to say to us, this is what will get you

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

Place in Geneva, this is what will get you the success that you seek. This is what will allow you to have what your heart desires in this life and in the next. This is where you can find success, if you so will. But here is where you need to pay attention.

00:35:17--> 00:36:02

Know that I am the one who created you and I will be the one who resurrect to Allah speaking to those who have come into Islam. And into Eman very early on in this passage of the Quran, the second third year of the messenger ship of the prophets I seldom Allah is also speaking to the people of Quraysh. What you will notice about the verses in the meccan surah is that they are short and they are cliffhangers. So I want you to kind of look at these verses. What are the high doctrinal insane I mean, suicidality. milty. I created mankind from an extract of clay. Okay, and then what? So it's a cliffhanger. So Matt, the next I film Matt, john Navajo, not fourth and fifth karate McKean. In

00:36:02--> 00:36:51

the next cycle of my creation, I placed humanity as a sperm drop in a secure place. Where is this mechanic McKean? Where's this karate McKean. And what happened to it? Film man, then Hello often a note Fatah Allah, I made this note for a halaqa for her lacuna, fat, fat, fat fat would that be the fat of immediacy, the fat of something happening image respect after another in its appropriate timeline. Each and every one of these verses as it leads you the people of Quraysh, who were prohibited to hear the Quran would want to linger longer to hear more of it. And that's why one of the rhythms of the sources of Mecca is that they are characterized by the short versus because and

00:36:51--> 00:37:40

short, you know, short verses that are cliffhanger I'm Maya Tessa alone. What is it that they're debating about? I don't know what I mean never LLVM about the new foretelling. That is massive in its in its news, what is it? And then the home fee, mock mock telefoon they remain disputing about what are they disputing? Well, you know, so out of luck, man, the ever Merciful, the Lord of mercy, the most compassionate, who is he? What did he do or rock man, I level Quran he's the one who made the knowledge of the poor and accessible taught it to eye level core and high level inside He is the one who originated mankind to receive the Quran, I lemma who he began on and on and on. So Matt,

00:37:40--> 00:38:36

hello from the north Fatah Allah until a while after the hallak now it's a past tense, and I have already created we create. I want to bring a subtlety notice I use the Royal we capital W e, well occurred harlequinade while occurred meaning we it's a plural form, but we know it's only Allah subhana wa Tada. So make note of this, my dear brothers, whenever you hear the Royal we, whenever you hear something that seems that Allah has joined with himself something in an action, the know that that's appropriate. Allah Subhana Allah speaks of himself in two ways. When Allah speaks of himself as his that as who he is, then it is always in the singular. In many, it is only I La Ilaha

00:38:36--> 00:39:30

Illa Anna, the only one who is me, right in nanny and Allah I am only me who is Allah, La Isla, no other God can clean that Illa Allah except me, singular. When Allah describes himself when Allah speaks of himself when Allah speaks of his essence, he speaks in the singular, because there is no partnership and Association. But when Allah speaks of actions that are to be performed, that are from his singular command, he will honor those who carry it. So Allah says, in national Zelda Vicar, I have commanded that the angel gibreel bring down the reminder. So what is a law who gave the command but gibreel carries out the function. So now you know, it becomes the plural, meaning that

00:39:30--> 00:39:59

gibreel is honored to be the one who carries the function and the odor of Allah. And that has a very important symbol like and understanding in our faith, so it is a singular order from Allah. He's the only one who can give the order but it is carried out by his creation. May Allah Minkus from those who are part of the orders of Allah wedding nyla hula half a loon you I will be Allah says in

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

net net new I will be the one who commands those who will guard the Quran. So when I've memorized the Quran when you memorize a section from the Quran and you become a halfhill you become a guardian of the Quran you are in the function of that which Allah has ordered and blessed there of by it may Allah grant us that success Allah I mean, hello tunnel in San created, why is it a past tense? It's a way of Allah saying that this is a constant active process. It wasn't just done once and that's it. No, it has been done, and it continues to be done and we'll continue they're after. And the command of me creating Adam is the same command as everything that will come from Adam alayhis

00:40:43--> 00:40:56

salam, Al insam holla Cana al insana, Allah speaks about now the singular human being mean so it's only Adam means Sula, Latin from an extract

00:40:57--> 00:41:47

min teen of clay teen is a muddy, you know water that has a saturation point Mim theme and therefore this is a literal statement of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you and I as believers we submit to the order of Allah. It is the Orthodox belief that we have as Muslims, that humanity come from Adam and Adam is from dust, meaning from the elements of the earth. And so Pamela, all of us have this cosmic dust in us, you and all of us, everything is made up of the elements of that which we will be in tuned in one of the most beautiful Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu it was said to them, as it narrated by Lima Timothy, and I've written a piece about it. There was a brother May Allah

00:41:47--> 00:42:30

subhanaw taala have mercy upon him. His first name was Bill hottie. He passed away inside the role of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right after Salah to fetch it while I was praying there. And I recount his journey of life and his beautiful end. You can Google the article it's called the man who died in Jenna, the man who died in Jannah. by Brian mitts on Muslim matters in sha Allah, maybe somebody can pin it to the thread or to the comments. in it. I begin with that Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad's I send them where an Ethiopian man had arrived in the Medina of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when that man arrived, after knowing and accepting Islam

00:42:30--> 00:43:15

and spending a little bit of time with the Prophet, he died, the prophet said Illa Illa, Allah Subhana Allah let you know in Allah, Allah there was none but he that's worthy of worship. He came all the way from that place, to the land to be buried from the earth he was created from this man is buried in a lucky I May Allah give us a death that is of a weakness to Allah Shahada to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the honor of being buried in a lucky or nearest to our interview, Mohammed Salim, why do we value to be buried in that place in the earth, near the prophets, I said them because were the prophets essences from where the elements of the life of the prophets of Allah He

00:43:15--> 00:43:55

was elements from his body and his material, the raw elements of his body, that the elements of the earth that made up his form is from the earth which surrounds his body as a part of our orthodox belief as Muslims. I call the AR the inner shift. He says that as Muslims, we don't believe that there is any plot of land that has more sacredness, then the soil that is touching upon the blessing just said, the physical being of the Prophet Mohammed sitesell him because that's the earth from which he was created or the elements from which he was created. And therefore those who are nearest to the prophets of Allah SLM are those who are buried next to him. So you find the nearest the one

00:43:55--> 00:44:38

who's made from his money even in our English vernacular, we say, you know this a man of the earth you know he's from made from the earth he's a humble man, he's a good man right? And Abu Bakar is made from the the clay of the prophets I seldom from the earth of that also sell I sell them that's nearest to him, similarly is remote. Similarly, those who are buried nearest the nearest to them sallallahu it was selling what are the aligners Sahaba into el Bahia? May Allah give us standing in it Phil mahalo canal insan Adam mean Sula to maintain Thermage Allah who not fat and thereafter our creation it is a coagulation of sperm that is deposited in a secure place tamahagane and Northfield

00:44:38--> 00:45:00

Allah cadet McLachlan Allah for the modem for Hala Ibom and parkinsonian eva melasma film and chat now an hour for further barakallahu axonal color theme I love and speaks about different stages of development. I want you to know that the Quran is not meant to be a book of science. And I do find it at times frustrating where some people they speak about the scientific

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

miracles of the Quran seeking to chronologically you know establish it in that sense at the Quran is not meant to be read as a textbook as a textbook of science and you will fail yourself and others if you have that perspective it has indicators is a book of signs a book of a yet so this is an idea. Allah is telling you listen, there is more to the creation of a human being than then just you know, formulating in the stomach. There are stages to the creation, there are passages that they break through different veils that they break through. All of that is acknowledged for us in the Koran, but we don't try to link it specifically to particular scientific endeavors or particular recent

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

discoveries of scientific knowledge. Because as science begins to unravel more and more of the mysteries of the creation of Allah, it becomes at times in an inflexibility that you put on a plan that the Quran did not put on itself. So don't speak in the forum in a scientific definitive manner, where something later comes to comes to light, that your interpretation is used to confine and imprison the Quran, that is an intellectual dishonesty. And something that is not acceptable in our tradition as Muslims, we develop the block the drop into a clinging cloud of blood, then develop the clot into a lump of flesh, then develop the lump into bones and clothed the bones with flesh. Then

00:46:30--> 00:47:14

we brought this into a new creation, the new creation is that Allah Subhana, Allah sends the soul now neither with numerous or with the fifth Hadith in the 14, I think they will remember no he that Allah sends an angel with the soul and the father of that young baby fetus that is now given a soul that has transitioned from lifelessness for the first 40 years or whatever you interpret the Hadith as being into a living human being that resides inside its mother's stomach with a soul. And I want to end with this idea that for many necom badda Valley, kalama you tune eventually you will return to Allah after your physical death, but your soul is eternal once it was created with Adam. So my

00:47:14--> 00:47:42

soul and your soul are eternal created entities by Allah subhanho wa Taala from the moment Adam was created, and they carry on forth, and our body will be shed it's that is the physical that but the soul lives on in the knowledge and with the knowledge of Allah in the way that it is with Allah subhana wa Tada. I wanted to end by speaking about this idea through mahalo often and not for you know, these verses of the stages of creation.

00:47:43--> 00:48:12

Allah subhana wa tada once you and I to appreciate that there are cycles in life. And just as they were cycles in how you were formed, there will also be cycles in how you live, and there will be cycles where you are weak, and then you gain strength, and then you will find your weakness and Allah attaches this to the same sequence of verses in other sources of the Quran, that Allah, you know, brought you from your mother's womb. Let Allah moonachie and

00:48:14--> 00:48:59

knowing nothing, and Chuck got some our bizarre he opened for you, you're hearing in your sight, you became aware and you grew into strength. And as you grow into swing into strength, you become Auroville, you become one who declines in power, and SubhanAllah. That cycle is the same cycle of all of living things on the earth. So Allah uses that evidence for that. The verses that will come now that speak about the nations that were destroyed before us. Allah indicates here I'm going to speak to you about Noah and Farah own and Moosa, I'm going to speak to you about all these other nations know that Pharaoh was weak, grew into strength, and then weakened, his weakness wasn't a

00:48:59--> 00:49:44

physicality, but it was of a spiritual detachment from the essence that is meant to enliven our hearts, our places, and our time with Allah Subhana who want to add too many necom Yo, back so my inner combat the daddy kalama you tune filmmaking Mecca meow melty Amity to battle and as you die your physical presence I will bring you back to life and your soul will merge with a new physical being and you will be accountable to me in sha Allah. We pray that Allah Subhana Allah grant us access and open to us the door of all good and go all understanding that Allah teaches us from the Quran what we don't know and allows us to practice what we are aware of, and to help us remember

00:49:44--> 00:49:58

what we've been had made made to have forgotten. Well suddenly Allahumma salli wa barik alekseevna whenever you know Mohammed subhanak alarm over ham decrescendo La La Land to Safarova to like I'm happy to remain for another few minutes for questions in chat allow my dear brother

00:50:03--> 00:50:14

By our president, I'm sure everyone, as reflected on each other will continue to reflect on the saw. As we go through the different series of webinars, we have few questions in

00:50:16--> 00:50:18

the questions they can do so

00:50:20--> 00:50:23

the first one is, first question is masturbation.

00:50:26--> 00:51:13

The first question is, is masturbation consider considered Xena? I don't know any of the odema who have stated that but what I want you to know is that Xena is not just the finality of it the Hadith of the prophets is elements of Bahari. He says I nanometers neon so sexual gratification to release sexual tension for men and women both have the same hope right? Usually it's it's the context of men asking this, but I nanny Tasmanian, the two eyes they have their level of Xena they have their level of bringing one closer to where they shouldn't be Allah subhanho wa Taala says well at Prabhu Xena don't go near Xena so the eyes bring you closer. Well, we do nanny he has neon Li nanometers neon

00:51:13--> 00:51:45

was in our home another the site the things you look at lead you to center well within and the ears they lead you towards Xena and it's listening. While family as it was in our whole column, the tongue in the mouth. They commit Zina and it's speech when he tells me was in our headlamps well, but you it's to touch or to come in contact with original your feet carry you to the place of Xena well for you, you suck. It is your prayer private air, your chastity and its final moment that will give truthfulness to the Zina or not. And therefore

00:51:46--> 00:52:29

I, you know, there's recent controversies, of course online about what is the hook of self gratification to produce a release. There are a lot of folks speak about it in one way. And there are other automount who speak about it another way. So there's the hoekman in terms of the legislative processes, especially in the month of Ramadan. If one was to do that, in nullifies, they're fast, right, if there is a release in that sense. But so that's a fifth perspective. The second perspective that I think is important is that this is a colored door for somebody who is unable to restrain themselves. So you will find in record, that there are a man who may even

00:52:29--> 00:53:13

recommend it to be practiced if somebody was traveling away from their spouse traveling away in a land where they do not have a legitimate purpose. It is better for them than the fitna that is found in other places. And this is something that, you know, should be left to an individual to know that there is a great deal of harm that can come of it, if it is linked to that which is prohibited by the site or sound or, or discussions with other people. Usually it's very rare that somebody in our time is going to perform these actions without actually having some type of stimulant and that becomes another root problem that leads to addiction and leads to other things. And it's something

00:53:13--> 00:53:32

that we do need to be more and more careful with and more aware of. So is it Xena in the sense that it is in like a man and a woman coming together? The answer is no. But is it a pathway that can lead to how long and great sin? And the answer is? Yes. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us chastity and protection along with me.

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

The question we had was brought in

00:53:38--> 00:53:41

to where the belief was or stopped from entering.

00:53:43--> 00:53:47

And you mentioned not the believers or unbelievers as the nominee, yes.

00:53:49--> 00:53:51

This is still a point.

00:53:53--> 00:54:38

Yes, we would not for example, we would not for example, so the question just to repeat it, is this a standard opinion that somebody who is an idolater should be stopped from entering towards the Kaaba entering the sacred Masjid or entering the harem? From where, you know Majid Isha or attend ame is entering into the lens of the harem? To perform acts of worship near the cabin in an idolatrous state? The answer is yes, unanimously, Ah, man. So for somebody to seek acts of ritualization of worship of an idolatrous nature near the Kaaba in the sacred lands of the Kaaba to practice that, in the areas of

00:54:39--> 00:54:42

magical Haram. It becomes followed

00:54:44--> 00:54:59

upon the Muslims of that area to deter them and stop them from it. By the command of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. There was no matter of course of dispute. Does that mean well, what if somebody is just coming to look, they're not coming to worship, they're not coming to do anything of that nature is

00:55:00--> 00:55:42

There are people permitted to travel through just say they were on a caravan. And it reached there. What about the non Muslims who lived, you know, in the areas that were in that area, Christians and Jews were they deterred from it. So there's difference of opinions that that are wide ranging amongst them. And we're more strict in certain areas and more liberal in certain areas, depending on the power of conviction of the Muslims at the time. So you found what that when Muslims were confident in their faith and they had a strong regulations and governance, there were things that were made easier for them to accept the people coming in or to deter and, and people coming into

00:55:43--> 00:55:47

come as ambassadors and so on. And when there wasn't, there was more

00:55:48--> 00:56:32

words of of caution from that would have meant. So in the era of email Tamia, for example, in the middle column, you will find that their discussions were a lot more strict than in areas before them, because they lived at the time of the tatara of the, you know, the Mongols invasions and things of that it means a very important moment in human in our Muslim history to become on guard and to be extra careful of some of the sacred sites so that we don't have those problems. We do know that there were many massacres that happen to the head judge on their pathway to Hajj even as they may toe off around the Kaaba. There were renegades and the army thought and many different people,

00:56:32--> 00:56:47

you know, desecrated different lands that Cabo was destroyed in battle for in different times. As a consequence of that. And all of that is found in our historical records without blemish. We don't seek to hide anything like that. This is from the supernova Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:56:51--> 00:56:54

questions related to the sword and

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

magic.

00:56:59--> 00:57:44

Sorry, are there any verses that are commanded to treat magic? Are there any verses that are recommended to treat magic? Well, it depends. You know what, what you mean by by magic and you know the concepts that relate to a say How are varied in the Quran, and it's important to note that there's different differentiations with that, but generally speaking, all of the Quran is seen as a treatment. So every idea of the Quran is seen as a treatment, the some of the ones that are more recommended in the time and in the life of the Prophet iclm were Al Fatiha and salted Fattah is also one of its names is our rokeya right it is the surah of spiritual cure. So we recited when we feel

00:57:44--> 00:58:23

unwell, we recited physically unwell. Well, but I would I am always very hesitant to speak about Mike because there are misunderstandings culturally not religiously, culturally amongst Muslims of what constitutes magic. So everybody, you know, you know, there could be a brother who's finding it difficult in his household to relate with his wife. And he's like somebody must have done shadow share somebody, you know, meddled in my affairs, and it could just be Subhanallah you need to soften up a little bit you need to help out around the house a little bit. There's no magic maybe you can do a little bit of magic called doing the dishes every so often or helping around a little bit. So

00:58:23--> 00:58:56

you know, I don't want it to be just a spiritual issue. Is it magic? Something that we believe as Muslims can occur? Yes. But is it in the way that is so prolific in you find in certain cultures where everybody in their cousin things that somebody is under the influence of a spell? Or you know, there's these Voodoo doctors that are trying to ruin my life? The answer is no, it is not as prolific not many people have that knowledge. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect you and I from it. Is it a reality? Yes. And is it something that we

00:58:57--> 00:59:41

seek to distance ourselves and protect our homes with a foreign Yes, so I give you the top three ways to protect yourself in your home. A little courtesy before you sleep and when you wake up a little courtesy after every Salah that you perform a little courtesy at any time that you feel unwell. So total Fatiha in your bed before you sleep recite it with your hands cup to one's three five or seven times breathe on it and wipe parts of your body before you go to rest and make a number three make the tower would be now many more I will be that time. The last two chapters of the Quran or the last for Pull. Pull. Yeah, you will cap your own colo Allah had choreographer Allah

00:59:41--> 00:59:54

polycarbonates three times each Kalia, y'all Catherine four times, right. These are all confirmed soon as of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant his healing and purity along with me

01:00:03--> 01:00:04
