00:01:26--> 00:02:20

in these two verses that I have recited to you right now from Surah Ibrahim alayhis salaam, Allah subhana wa tada gives us a beautiful parable and imagery in the Koran. And he says, lm Tara Kay fell Bala Bala who method and Have you not seen the parable or the example or the imagery that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives to that kennametal giver? To the beautiful Kadima. The beautiful Kadima is our Kadima of La ilaha illa Allah, it is the Kadima of Eman. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says Have you not seen the parable of law either in the law of the beautiful Kadima like a large tree, beautiful tree, cache gelatin Paiva a beautiful tree also has sabots the foundations of this tree

00:02:21--> 00:02:29

are firmly established. What photo half his summer and the branches of this tree are towering in the skies.

00:02:30--> 00:03:19

So Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving us this imagery of a beautiful tree whose branches are firmly established and whose roots are firmly established and whose branches are towering in the sky. To do cooler, cooler Hainan B is near Bihar. This tree the tree of a man it is giving its fruits it is bearing fruit it is fruitful at all times by the permission of its Lord. Well your variable love will answer that embedded in us and Allah subhanho wa Taala gives parables to mankind Delilah homea to the Quran, so that they can ponder and think about these parables. So let us pay heed to this parable. Let us ponder over this parable as Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted us to do and let us

00:03:19--> 00:03:28

analyze it bit by bit. What can we benefit from this image? What can we benefit from this parable that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given for a man

00:03:29--> 00:03:36

we start off by saying Allah subhana wa tada first and foremost compares a man compares Laila hi Lola to attribute

00:03:37--> 00:04:24

to a tree. And a tree is a symbol of life. It is a fundamental building block of the cycle of life. The tree takes our carbon dioxide and it gives us back by the permission of Allah, our oxygen, which is the basis of the breath that we take. Similarly, eemaan is the basis of our spiritual life. Just like the tree gives us our air, it gives us our food, it gives us shelter from its wood we derive our houses. Similarly eemaan is what we take shelter in. It is the spiritual basis of our life. So Allah subhana wa tada says that a man is like a tree not just any tree, a beautiful tree, whose roots are firmly established.

00:04:25--> 00:04:42

So this tree, it has roots that are going very deep, it is a firm tree. So when the wind blows, when a storm occurs, the tree will not be moved from its roots, the tree will not move it is firmly established. Similarly, a man

00:04:44--> 00:04:50

similarly a man when a man enters the heart, it becomes firmly established in it.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

Therefore you find you find that Muslims who are really and truly practicing their faith they

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Never give up their religion and leave Islam.

00:05:04--> 00:05:22

But the opposite is not true. Christians, Jews, Hindus, atheist, Buddhists, all the other religions, they will all enter into Islam. They will all enter into Islam. In fact, many times the more knowledgeable a person is of those faiths, he will be guided to Islam through his knowledge of his own religion.

00:05:23--> 00:05:34

But the opposite is never true. never in the history of the oma has an alum, or a half, or somebody who really, truly was a knowledgeable Muslim left Islam to another religion.

00:05:35--> 00:05:57

And even in our times when we find many ignorant Muslims, who have left the fold of Islam motets The reality is, they were never Muslim in the first place. They were born in Muslim households, maybe yes, they have given been given Muslim names by their parents, but they never really and truly were practicing Islam, reading the Quran praying five times a day.

00:05:58--> 00:06:40

And this is the general rule, even though the number of people that leave Islam is negligible compared to other religions. But even amongst those people, you will find that those who have left Islam they were never Muslim in the first place to have left it. They never tasted the reality of human. Why? Because when a man enters the heart, it never leaves it after that, yes, a Muslim might become weak. He might not practice Islam as properly as he should. But he will never ever stoop to the level of thinking that his religion is not true. And this is a sign of a true faith. It is a sign of a true religion. And it has been reported by Mr. Malhotra in his PSA, hey, that's Abu sufian

00:06:41--> 00:07:15

Abu Sofia and the famous Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he happened to be in Rome, excuse me in Jerusalem, and the emperor of Rome was there. And the emperor of Rome received a letter from the Prophet sallallahu. It was set up for the first time, the emperor of Rome heraclius. So he asked his advisors to bring any Arabs that were in the country, the only Arabs in the country, Abu sufian, at that time, also found was not a Muslim. He was not a Muslim at that time. So heraclius held a conversation with him. And this is reported a sizable crowd, it's a very early identifiable party, and he asked too many questions.

00:07:16--> 00:07:24

To verify if the profits of the lesson was a real profit. of the questions he asked double soufiane he said, informed me

00:07:25--> 00:07:33

when any person accepts the religion of this man, Does he ever leave that religion and give it up afterwards?

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

I will soufiane said no, this has never happened.

00:07:38--> 00:08:17

This has never happened, that a Muslim has accepted Islam, despite the fact that we're talking about the Moroccan period now as well. torture, punishments death, many times. Abu sufian honestly had to respond, even though he was not a Muslim at that time. And he said it has never happened that a person has accepted his faith and then given it up. At the end of all of these questions are many more questions he asked. We don't have time to mention all the bubbles. So Fran said or heraclius said, explaining each and each every question I asked you did any member of his religion leave Islam? You said no. directly. It says what How can he man this is the sign of a man.

00:08:19--> 00:08:45

This is a sign of a man heraclius was not a Muslim, but he was knowledgeable of Christianity. He was knowledgeable of the gospel, and he knew the sign of true faith. And he said this is what faith is when it enters the heart. It can never leave after that. This is a testimony of the emperor of Rome. Oslo has habits the foundations are firmly established. When Pharaoh Hafiz sama,

00:08:47--> 00:08:50

the branches of this tree are towering in the skies.

00:08:51--> 00:09:05

The branches of this tree are towering in the skies. What imagery do we get from this? First and foremost, it is not a trivial tree. It is not a small tree that we're talking about. We're talking about a magnificent huge tall tree.

00:09:06--> 00:09:18

This gives us the connotation of many things. First and foremost that Eman raises you up, it lifts you up to Allah subhanho wa Taala just like a tall tree also that is a sign of stability and firmness.

00:09:19--> 00:09:39

Also it becomes a landmark. It becomes a landmark that people all around this area. Know this tree and they will give you directions by it. When you see the tree turn left turn right it's like a landmark. Similarly, the Millionaire Society, he is like a landmark he stands up above the rest he becomes an example and of goodwill for those around him. This is the movement.

00:09:40--> 00:10:00

Also, these the imagery of a tall tree is lots of shelter, lots of shelter, you can turn to the street and sit under it to protect yourself from the elements. Similarly, a man when it becomes strong, it will protect you from all of the trials and tribulations that you face in your daily life. For

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

half his summer, his branches are towering in the skies.

00:10:05--> 00:10:15

Do cooler cooler Hey NIMBYs Nero beha. This tree will give its fruits at all times by the permission of its Lord.

00:10:17--> 00:10:20

Now, all the other trees on the face of this earth,

00:10:21--> 00:10:43

they give fruit occasionally, and they are barren. Occasionally. There is no tree that constantly various fruits throughout the year, maybe once a year, maybe once every two years, maybe even once every two months or once every twice a year. But there is no tree that will constantly be fruitful throughout the year, except for the tree of

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

the tree of a man.

00:10:47--> 00:11:06

Whenever you need sustenance, spiritual sustenance, whenever you need to replenish yourself, to increase your energy, enthusiasm, whenever you need any type of sustenance, you can turn to this tree, you can pluck its fruits and you can eat of it. It gives you its fruits throughout the year at all times,

00:11:07--> 00:11:19

by the permission of the Lord. And this is a parable that Allah has given for us so that we can ponder over this parable. So the question arises, what are some of these fruits of this tree of a man?

00:11:21--> 00:12:10

What are some of the fruits of this tree of a man? There are many, many foods to this tree of human have the greatest of the fruits of this tree is gender itself, gender itself, gender shall only be given to those who have a history of human those who do not have a man will not be given this fruit. Those who have a man will be given it. And in fact if they have perfected their Eman, they will not just be given any gender. Allah subhana wa tada says in the levena Armando why Moodle saw the hottie can Attila whom Jana toolface dosi newsela those who have emailed and they do good, they shall have not just one gender Jen, not many genders were in full dose itself, the highest gender as a place to

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

live. And this was the fruits and blessings of a man

00:12:14--> 00:12:21

of the fruits and blessings of a man is that a man will protect a person from the fire of hell.

00:12:22--> 00:12:35

A man will protect a person from the fire of hell either a complete protection or a partial protection depending on his email Eman is of levels, email is of levels

00:12:37--> 00:12:55

of the important points on this levels that we need to know are two primary points that we need to know on this chart to remind if you like there is one level there is one line on this chart which is the difference between Eman and Cofer. If you are above this line, you are a believer if you are below this line, you are a Catholic.

00:12:57--> 00:13:17

There is another level higher than this, which is the minimum required EMR that Allah wants all of us to have. This is not the same as the minimum Eman. There is a minimum amount beneath which to discover and then there is a minimum required image beneath which a person is a sinner but he is not a coffee.

00:13:18--> 00:13:22

So if a person has the minimum required level,

00:13:23--> 00:13:32

if he has the minimum amount that Allah has required him to have, there is a guarantee from Allah a guarantee that the fire of hell shall not touch him.

00:13:33--> 00:14:06

He might be punished in other ways. He might be punished in this world through many Muslims and afflictions he might be punished in the grave, he might be punished on the Day of Judgment, he might be punished on the Surat, but the worst punishment which is the punishment of hell will be protected he will be protected from the worst punishment when he has this minimum level of emotion. What is the minimum level of human it is that you fulfill Allah obligations upon you. And you abstain from the major sins, laws obligations that are the five pillars of Islam, the major sins, you know them

00:14:08--> 00:14:27

of [???] and fornication and Riba and all of these major sins. If a person fulfills the five requirements of Islam and abstains from the major sins, he has fulfilled the minimum requirement of Eman And there is a guarantee a guarantee that the fire of hell shall not touch him.

00:14:28--> 00:15:00

However, even if he falls below this minimum required level, but he is still above the demarcation between a man and Cofer. In other words, he is a fast support a sinner. Even then there is a protection, but it is a partial protection. And that protection is that even if a person who has a man enters the fire of hell, he will eventually be removed from it because of his email. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You are a human and now there will be taken out from the

00:15:00--> 00:15:20

I have held a group of people who have a man the size of a coin, a little amount of amount, so they would have entered it, but eventually will be taken out, then there shall be taken out those who have the weight of a seat, then there should be taken out those who have the smallest atoms weight of human in their heart.

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

So look at how the Profit System is progressing.

00:15:25--> 00:15:43

Those who have a small amount they will enter if Allah wills the fire of health, but eventually they will take it they will be taken out according to their level of EMA. So Eman protects a person from the fire of hell, in that if he has the minimum required amount that Allah requires him to have, he will not touch the fire.

00:15:44--> 00:16:11

But even if he falls below this, and he is still a believer, then if Allah wishes to punish him in the fire event, we seek Allah's refuge from that even if Allah wishes to punish him, then even then his email will protect him from permanently remaining in the fire of how and only those who do not have any email at all, will remain in the fire of hell. And this is the fruits and blessings of a man of the fruits and blessings of a man is that

00:16:14--> 00:16:38

a man acts like a key to accept, to open the door for a lot to accept your other good deeds. When you have a man and you do good, Allah will accept that from you. If a person does not have a man and he does good, Allah will not accept that good deed from him. In order for a lot to accept a deed from a person, that person must have a man

00:16:39--> 00:16:56

those people who do not have a man could for one day do a good deed. Allah says in the Quran, we'll call him Emma, I'm human and medinfo Jana haba Mathura. We have taken all of their good deeds, brought them forth on the day of judgment and then we will make them scattered like the dust in the wind.

00:16:57--> 00:17:44

They will be of no benefit to them. Only those who have Eman Allah says in the Quran, woman or other Hirata what Salah has saya wahoo me noon, for life mechanics, how you homeschool? whoever desires that you're after, and he strives to get it while he has he man. These are the people they're striving shall be accepted. So you have to strive and you have to have a man and then Allah will accept the striving from you. So Eman is like a key that causes your other good deeds to be accepted. And this is the fruits and blessings of a man of the fruits and blessings of a man is that a man is a means to forgive your sins. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran in Manitoba What am

00:17:44--> 00:17:52

I gonna what I mean I'm I don't saw the hunt for you but through lava sejati has said that those who commit sins and then they repent

00:17:53--> 00:18:06

and they have EMA and and do good. Allah with in flack, in fact, substitute will replace their evil with a good deed. So Allah will reward the sinner.

00:18:07--> 00:18:43

I repeat, Allah will reward the sinner for the sins that he has done. If a number of conditions are met, of them illa metabo he must repent perfectly. What he must have he man, what I mean, I'm an insider and he must do good. So on the Day of Judgment, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam has told us that a sinner will come a sinner who has met all of these criteria, a sinner will come and Allah subhana wa Taala will remind him Did you not do this sin? He will say Yes, my lord, I did not do this. And yes, my Lord, I did keep on going down the entire list.

00:18:45--> 00:18:57

Until the man will think he is destroyed. He has no hope for being saved. He has no hope for being saved. But he had implemented this verse. So Allah subhanho wa Taala will tell him

00:18:58--> 00:19:42

I protected the eyes of men from looking upon these sins in the world. I shall protect them from looking upon them today as well. You shall be rewarded for each and every of these sins that you have done. Because he had perfected this ayah at this demand will look up and he will say oh my lord, I see sins that I did. And I don't find them on this list. I want to see them as well. When he finds that Allah will substitute the sins for good. All of a sudden he'll remember more sins that he did. So this is of the fruits of demand, that when a person fully and truly perfects his Eman, he will be rewarded for the sins that he has done in the past. Obviously after perfecto but Toba, one

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

of the one of the aspects of doba is you make an intention not to return to the sin. So the one who sins and He says he has a man without doing toe but this is a joke. This is a laugh, the real tober necessitates leaving the sin. So when you have left this sin and you turn to Allah and you repent and you increase your good deeds,

00:20:00--> 00:20:15

You have in mind, that very sin shall be converted into a good deed, and a lot of xojo will reward you for it. And this is the fruits and blessings of the man of the fruits and blessings of the man is that the believer achieves the protection of Allah.

00:20:16--> 00:20:55

Allah says in the Quran in Olia Allah He no COVID-19 has no very easy Oh Leah have a lot of friends have a lot. They shall have no reason to be scared or to worry Who are these Olia? alladhina amanu What can we have? They had EMA and they have Taqwa of Allah. When you have a man and you perfect your image, you become a wealthy, you become those whom Allah protects. This is the meaning of wilaya This is the meaning of being a woody, it means Allah will protect you. And if Allah subhana wa Taala is protecting you, who can possibly harm you after that,

00:20:56--> 00:21:41

of the fruits and blessings of the man is that Allah subhanho wa Taala will fight and defend on behalf of those who believe when somebody tries to harm you, Allah Himself will defend you. Allah says in the Quran, in the law, you don't feel any Latina. armano Allah will protect and defend and fight on behalf of all of those who have emerged. And this is the fruits and blessings of a man of the fruits and blessings of a man is that he man will guide you to more women. So when you have a man and you want to have more demand than the man that you have will help you get to meet the man that you want. Allah says in the Quran, in the Latina amaroo Amina saw the hottie Yeah, de Moura

00:21:41--> 00:22:22

boom be Imani. Those who have emailed and do good, Allah will guide them because of their email. So when you have email and you want to come closer to Allah, Allah will bless you in that attempt, and he will cause you to come closer to him because of that email. So the more email you have, the easier it is to obtain yet more email. And this is of the fruits and blessings of email of the fruits and blessings of Eman is that good always occurs to the believers. That believer is always in a win win situation. No matter what happens. The believer is the winner. The believer can never be the loser ever, no matter what happens to him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, I

00:22:22--> 00:22:44

genuinely am really mean for in America who have amazing or the affairs of the believers because all of his affairs all of his matches his life and his death everything that happens to him it is for his own good, amazing, he can never lose. The movement is never the loser he is always the winner How so? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

if good happens to the believer,

00:22:49--> 00:23:11

he is thankful to Allah and so he will be rewarded for that good. So if a person is blessed with wealth and with health, and with family and children, and with the blessings of this world and the blessings of the Hereafter, he Thanks a lot. And when he thanks Allah, Allah will give him even more weather in Chicago, that as he tender, if you thank me, I will give you more.

00:23:12--> 00:23:28

But even if evil occurs to the person, a loss of a loved one, a loss of status of wealth, or loss of any privilege, even then that is for his own advantage, how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and if bad occurs to him, he will be patient,

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

he will be patient

00:23:32--> 00:23:43

and that is for his own benefit as well. So his patience will be rewarded, and he will attain through a large rewards far more than what he lost in this world.

00:23:44--> 00:24:19

He will attain because of his patience for more than whatever his loss was of this world. And this is of the fruits and blessings of a man of the fruits and blessings of Eman is that Allah subhana wa tada will give power will give the khilafah to those who have Eman. Allah says in the Quran. What are the law who Latina woman come with me to solidarity now? Yes, defender whom fill out. Allah has promised this is a promise that Allah does not need to promise Allah does not need to promise but to emphasize this point.

00:24:21--> 00:24:36

Allah has promised those amongst you who have Eman and do good deeds that Allah will have a surety give them the healer for this exactly the translation layer stuff leave unknown fill out.

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

So if you want to have power, and there is an honor in this world, then the way to go about doing this is through email. And this is a stark refutation and a contrast of many of the groups out there who claim to be striving for the healer, but they don't even know the basics of or their own Eman, the basics of their own al Qaeda and yada yada

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

The law in order to establish a philosopher, we start with our a man with an understanding of law, the law, and then we work from there. And this is a verse in the Quran that we recite to this day. This is of the fruits and blessings of a man of the fruits and blessings of a man is that Allah subhanho wa Taala that will raise the believers in this world and in the hereafter. Allah says in the Quran, your father in law who Latina Armando Minh come when Latina Mata Rajat, Allah will raise the ranks of those who have emerged amongst you, he will raise the ranks, and those who have knowledge. So the ranks will be raised in this world, in that people will look up to them, people

00:25:39--> 00:25:56

will respect them, people will take from them, and their rents will be raised in the hereafter that they should occupy higher levels of gender. And this is of the fruits and blessings of a man of the fruits and blessings of a man and this is a point that not many people understand or realize is that

00:25:57--> 00:26:04

it is only the men who really and truly enjoys this life.

00:26:07--> 00:26:45

Let me repeat that it is only the men who really and truly enjoys this life. And this is a fact that the vast majority of Muslims and all of the Kufa are completely unaware of only the mote Minh enjoys this life. Of course the Hereafter is for the believers, yes. But not many people realize that it is the moment who enjoys this higher this life and no other person can enjoy this life like the believer, Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, man, I mean, I saw the hamin record in Odessa, wahoo, minion, friend I know he and

00:26:48--> 00:27:17

he who does good, whether he is male or female. This is a true equality By the way, my dear brothers and sisters, the true equality of the genders and the sexes. How is it? It is that Allah will reward the man the same way He rewards the woman. If a man does a good deed and a woman does that same deed, all other factors put aside they shall be rewarded the same. And this is the equality that Islam gives to the genders. As Allah says, He who does good whether he is male or female, and he has a man

00:27:18--> 00:28:06

What are we going to do further no he in who we are going to grant him higher pleasure, sweet life, a sweet life in this world before the hereafter. The only person who can enjoy this world a sweet life is the movement, household household. Because the caffeine and the week of faith the week of Eman No matter how much they have, they will always want more, they will always want more. And so they will never enjoy what they have. Because they always are aiming higher than that. If they have 100,000, they will want 200 if they have 200 they want a million if they have a million, they want 2 billion and Do you not see around you do not see around you. Does any person any person reach a

00:28:06--> 00:28:33

certain mark and then say that's it, I don't want any more. In fact, the richer he gets, the more busy and engrossed he becomes in getting more and more even though he needs it less. Even though he needs it less. When a person reaches a million, the millionaire mark for example, he does not need as much money as the one who is struggling at the bottom of the ladder. Yet you will find that that person is busier in his life protecting what he has investing for more.

00:28:34--> 00:29:11

So he is not able to enjoy the amount that he has, as the reliever. That reliever, whatever he has, whether it is 100 100,000 a million or a billion, it does not matter. He is content. He is happy. He knows that this is from Allah, Allah will give you more so he enjoys this amount that Allah has given him. The believer is content and this is the real happiness. So he can utilize the blessings that Allah has given him to the maximum. Whatever Allah has given him, he is happy with that, and he will enjoy it to the fullest extent.

00:29:12--> 00:29:53

The cafeteria or the week person might have more in his bank account might be driving the fancier car living in the bigger house, but he will not be able to enjoy it as much as the movement will because he's always wanting more aiming higher, greedy, thirsty. So in the process he loses out in this world and the Hereafter, the movement and only the movement, really and truly enjoys this life. And this is of the fruits and blessings of Eman that's not not many people realize. If you wish to enjoy this life, you want to live a sweet life a trouble free life. Look at the believer whatever happens whatever happens he will say Alhamdulillah in the reliable nada Roger own. Allah has decided

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

this for me and Allah knows what is best for me and he will accept it. As for the fast or the car for the Manasa

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

crying, screaming wailing while allow Why did this happen? I don't deserve this. Look at the difference, who is truly enjoying this world the moment and this is the fruits and blessings of a man of the fruits and blessings of a man is that wherever the believer goes, he will find brothers. Allah says in me know that those who have a man they are the real brothers. Wherever the believer goes, he will find people who love him. He will find people who support him he will find a community even though he might not be related through the ties of blood through the ties of kinship through the ties of culture, ethnicity, language, but is related to us far stronger bond, the bond of a man

00:30:44--> 00:31:08

in the Latina our mano y mano sorry hottie sayaji alohomora man would those who have a man and do good, Allah will write for them love, Allah will write for them love, so the people will love them and the angels will love them and Allah subhana wa tada himself will love them. And this is of the fruits and blessings of a man of the fruits and blessings of a man

00:31:10--> 00:31:54

is that the believer is receptive to advice. And it is only the believer who is receptive to good advice. Allah says was that kid for in the declaw 10 fat who meaning remind, give advice, because this advice only benefits the believers. You can talk to a hypocrite day and night, argue with him, remind him make him scared of a lot and he will not bat an eyelid and you go to the believer who is involved in some sins, and you open your mouth and you say you do not fear Allah and you will find his eyes which is pouring down with tears and he remembers his sin and he turns back to a lot of repentance.

00:31:55--> 00:32:29

This is a fruit and a sign of a man. The believer is receptive to advice. As for the hypocrites, as for the people of wiki man, for my level monitors killer team, why don't why do they turn away when they are reminded and given advice. They turn away someone bookmobile formula, deaf, dumb and blind. They do not think and ponder. You can do all that you want in your power. And these people will not respond. But the moment the moment he is the one who is receptive to advice and this is of the fruits and blessings of a man

00:32:30--> 00:33:06

of the fruits and blessings of a man is that Allah subhana wa tada will bless each and every believer on the Day of Judgment with a special blessing. What will happen is that on the Day of Judgment, on the day of judgment, after Allah subhanho wa Taala has decided Heaven and Hell who shall go to heaven who should go to hell. And the people have to cross over the Surat, the bridge to get to heaven. Allah subhanho wa Taala will destroy will extinguish all light, all light,

00:33:07--> 00:33:51

there shall be no light at that time, a darkness that we cannot even imagine. Because there is no like Allah has destroyed it. We cannot even imagine that darkness. So how will the people find their way to gender and they have to cross over the set off and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the setup is sharper than a razor thinner than a hair thinner than a hair and sharper than a razor. And if you fall into this rut of off the setup, where do you fall into the fire of hell? How will the believers find this slot? How will they cross over it? How will they find the doors of gender in this sheer pitch utter darkness. Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless each and every individual

00:33:52--> 00:34:04

personally with a light individuel light tailor made How was it tailor made? It will be tailor made according to the size of his EMA

00:34:05--> 00:34:46

the stronger his EMA the stronger that light shall be. And the weaker his Eman the weaker that light shall be. And this is one of the manifestations of Allah subhanho wa Taala is infinite justice. Allah subhana wa Taala shall reward the people of good with extra reward and those who are lesser than them, they shall be rewarded but not to the level of those who did the level of the higher people. And that's for those who had no image they shall not be rewarded at all. So what will happen Allah subhana wa tada describes in the Koran. Yo Matata Medina will minutes on that day, you shall see the believing men and women Yes, Samurai Khomeini it will be a murder him there light is shining

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

out in front of them shining and on the right hand sides. They will be racing to gender. Because the light is clear. The path is illuminated, they can see where the pitfalls are and they shall race to gender.

00:35:00--> 00:35:36

Speed of their email as well. Each person shall cross the Sirat at the speed of their email so much so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, there will be those who cross the Surat at the speed of lightning. The speed of lightning is the speed of light, modern physics we claim that nothing can go faster than light here the prophets of the law, why do you send them 1400 years ago, he said that the first people to cross they will cross at the speed of lightning, they will cross at the speed of light. And then those who are it is as if they are running on a fast horse. And then those It is as if and he kept on going until he said finally there will be those who are crawling, crawling on all

00:35:36--> 00:36:18

fours. All of this is a manifestation of their Eman proportional to the man and their light shall be proportional to their Eman. The people have strong Eman they shall see as far as the rises as far as the eye can see, their light shall shine. Those of weak Iman the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said until the lowest one his toll shall flicker on his toe, it shall flicker on and what it flickers on is you'll take one step forward, then it shall flicker off again and he will not know whether light will come to him again or not. He will be waiting in a state of despair. And when it comes you will take one more step. All of this as a manifestation of Allah subhanho wa Taala is infinite justice.

00:36:18--> 00:36:38

Each person shall be rewarded for the man that they had. Now you can leave that that Allah subhana wa tada says, in the law you will do a gentleman Amita Allah subhanho wa Taala will not cause to waste those who did good. And this is of the foods and manifestations of eema brothers and sisters there are a lot of fruits to this tree of man.

00:36:39--> 00:36:45

But do you know what the greatest fruit is of this tree? The greatest blessing of this tree of a man.

00:36:47--> 00:36:52

The greatest blessing is as Allah subhanho wa Taala says little lady in Santa

00:36:54--> 00:37:05

Ana was the other those who do good. They shall have a hughster meaning gender was Jada and more than gender.

00:37:06--> 00:37:28

What can possibly be more than gender itself? What blessing can be greater than the blessing of gender itself? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has told us that this zyada this blessing. This extra blessing is the blessing of looking at the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:37:29--> 00:38:10

When the believers look at Allah subhanho wa Taala they shall even forget about Jenna and all the agenda has to offer them they should become oblivious to all of what Jenna has to offer them. And even this blessing, my dear brothers and sisters shall be proportional to one's a man. Because the higher the place that a person occupies an agenda, the more frequently shall he look upon a law and the longer shorter duration be. And the lower that a person is agenda, the less frequently you should do this, and this is the highest. This is the greatest blessing that Allah subhana wa tada will bless the believers with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would pray to Allah make a dua

00:38:10--> 00:38:56

to Allah. Allah humma in me, Luca, let another you know what she can carry him? Oh Allah. I asked the sweetness, look at how he described it. Let them I asked the sweetness of looking at your noble face. This is the greatest and the largest and the sweetest of all of the fruits of this tree of Eman. It is worth more than all of the other foods put together. And this is something that Allah subhanho wa Taala will give only to believers, who would you who know me they know little either, would you want to know a little behind now on that day, faces shall be bright, they shall be bright, Why shall they be bright, because they will be looking at Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is the

00:38:56--> 00:38:59

greatest and the best of all of the fruits of this tree of even

00:39:00--> 00:39:11

suffice to say, My dear brothers in Islam, that each and every blessing of this world, and the hereafter

00:39:12--> 00:39:56

can only be obtained through the tree of human. Let me repeat that each and every blessing that really and truly is a blessing that is worthwhile to have. Each and every blessing can be obtained, not just can be obtained can only be obtained through the tree of a man and if anybody tries to obtain a blessing through other than a man, that blessing will also have some curses and some problems in it. Only through the tree of Eman with the blessings be 100% pure. So yes, even the calf is blessed with money and with health and with status and with life. But all of these blessings will not be enjoyed fully they will come with their pains and anguish as well not so for the moment. The

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

moment will enjoy these blessings fully, perfectly.

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

So all the blessings of this world and all the blessings of the Hereafter, they can be obtained and only be obtained through this treat of man. But before we conclude, we have to talk about email. What is a man? What is this concept that we're talking about known as email?

00:40:20--> 00:40:42

Many people, they presume that a man is synonymous with faith in English, a man is faith. And so they think that a man is a spiritual, abstract, conceptual, intangible concept. They say I only have to believe in my heart have faith in my heart. And this is enough to have a man

00:40:44--> 00:41:11

but a man is not synonymous with faith. No. Yes, for the Christians, it is for the Christians. Yes. Mr. For the Christians as you have to believe in Jesus Christ and you will be saved. That's it, but not so for the moment. No, the scholars have assumed that they have defined a man to be a belief in the heart and statements of the tongue and actions of the limbs.

00:41:12--> 00:41:15

It is not just a belief in the heart. No.

00:41:16--> 00:41:40

What do you brothers and sisters, he beliefs or beliefs? Does he believe in Allah? Yes. Does he believe in the date of attachment? Yes. Does he even make dua to Allah occasionally? Yes, did not at least say our there'll be a very low Mubarak on our law. Oh my Lord, he believes his calling Allah is Lord,

00:41:41--> 00:42:22

at least does not deny. Oh my lord, allow me to live until the day of judgment. It believes even has a fear of Allah. The Quran says in the Quran, Allah says in the Quran, that he believes says in an awful lot of blood I mean, I am scared of Allah, the Lord of the worlds. A police knows that Adam and the Prophet system and all the prophets in between have been sent by a light is not deny this. Yet, at least Is he a woman? Is he a Mormon? Of course not. Of course not. Why? What did he deny? What did he deny that he is not a Mormon? He denied nothing. In the heart conceptually nothing, but he refused to submit to Allah.

00:42:23--> 00:43:12

One such the one. Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded him to do one sector and he said no, I am better than him and a hydro min Halekulani Managua, lockdown and clean, You created me from the fire. You created him from clay and dust, I am better I shall not prostrate all Muslims, if you beliefs fell into what he fell into, because of refusing to do one such that when Allah commanded him to do so, what is the fate of the believers who are called to perform 17 Records a day? 17 minimum 32 such there's 34 such this. And the believer says sorry, I don't have time. Sorry. My work is more important. Or no I don't have I don't want to you know get away from my work to do this.

00:43:14--> 00:43:31

34 says this daily they believe there might be rejecting and he thinks he has a man. He says no Rama mortman Yes, yes, I'm a Mormon. What type of human do you have? what he believes became a Kaffir for one semester. And he says I don't have time I don't have I don't have the energy I don't have the Tuesday's am I'm better than him.

00:43:33--> 00:44:18

Imagine when it exists, it is manifested in your actions. In fact, ponder over each and every verse that I quoted you today each and every verse, what is Allah subhana wa tada say, in the levena M and o y middle saw the heart, what levena am and what I mean? Why the law letting our men come what I mean? So they had Emma and Emma sada paired together, never in the haoran does Allah praise email without Iman? Never. Because this is not real, Eamon. Allah does not want a theoretical belief that He exists, and he is one of what uses that he believes the same. Allah wants to see that belief in action. And this is a sign of Eman subparallel. When we're watching the news, and the forecaster

00:44:18--> 00:44:37

tells us that is going to rain severely tomorrow. Are we not going to prepare ourselves according to that? will wear special clothes, make sure that we don't get wet so on and so forth. If our boss were to tell us at work, if you don't do this job by next week, you will be fired? Are we going to ignore it? Our boss says are we going to work and we make sure you finish it by next week?

00:44:38--> 00:44:59

How much more so when we read a lot in his messenger telling us to do this telling us not to do that. And we say we don't care. We don't have time. I'd rather follow my desires of what type of image is this? This is not the type of man that is praiseworthy or accepted Islam. Those who believe and do good. Doing good is an essential part of

00:45:00--> 00:45:20

Man, if a person claims to have a man that he man will be shown just like the tall tree, the tall tree the parable, it will not remain hidden. Oh as long as my heart is good if your heart is good, your body will be good as well. If your heart is good, your actions will be good as well. How can your heart be good and your actions be evil?

00:45:21--> 00:46:02

How can your heart to be good and you do not pray or fast or give charity or you do or you commit to major sins? This is not possible. It is not possible. A more men cannot commit major sins even the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said law is Nyssa Nina is new home in the one who commit Zina while he is committing Zina. He is not a woman. If he were a Mormon, he wouldn't have committed us in it in the first place. The one who steals while he steals he is not a movement, this is telling us a little while you self negating a man Meaning what? Meaning he is negating the minimum that is required. It doesn't mean he becomes a Kaffir. No, it means he doesn't have the minimum that he must have. Of

00:46:02--> 00:46:41

what use is the man when it is not followed up by actions. So my dear brothers and sisters, he man consists yes of belief, it must consist of belief, but it is more than belief. Statements of the tongue do app zeker such the remembering a law, actions of the limbs, prayer, prayer, this is the fundamental difference between the Muslim and the calf and the prophets of the law. Why do you sit him said that the pact that I have with them meaning the Muslims, the contract, this is the exact word Allah the contract that I have with them is the prayer. When you break the contract, what happens you leave the company.

00:46:43--> 00:46:47

The Prophet says who said men teleca copper, whoever leaves the prayer has committed.

00:46:49--> 00:46:57

It doesn't matter if he believes in a law, this is not an email. Email is not synonymous with belief and faith. Email is more than just that.

00:46:58--> 00:47:38

So if you if we wish to taste of the fruits of this treat, if we wish to taste of all of these fruits, the way to do so is to protect our image just like we protect any tree when we have the tree What do we do we water it, we protect it from predators will protect it from other things that will harm it. Similarly, our human we must watch it with our sincerity when we show the sunlight of our good deeds upon it. We must protect our EMA and from the evil that we do. Because he man goes up and down. We all know this, or even in Ramadan is not an argument outside of Ramadan. We all know this. We experience it or demand goes up. How does it go? Why does it go up through good deeds or Eman

00:47:38--> 00:48:22

goes down? How does it go down through evil deeds. Simple, simple. If you do good, your demand goes up. If you do evil, your demand goes down. So if we wish to taste of the fruits of this tree, we have to perfect this tree, make it stronger, make it healthier by doing our good deeds and abstaining from the major sins. And I conclude this talk by reminding myself when you have a beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that really and truly summarizes the essence of Eman. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said the whole time when he man he has tasted the sweetness of a man who Monrovia Bella here Robin Robin Islami, dienen woman Mohammed in sallallahu

00:48:22--> 00:49:03

alayhi wa sallam and abelian wa Sula. He has tasted the sweetness of a man who is content with Allah as his Lord. He is content with Allah as his Lord, meaning whatever he does will be for the pleasure of Allah. He is content with Islam as his way of life, meaning he will mold his life to fit around Islam and he will not fit Islam into his schedule. He will make his schedule revolve around Islam and he will not take Islam and put it where is convenient into his schedule. And he is content with the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as his prophet and messenger which means whenever he does anything, whatever he does, he will look at the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:49:03--> 00:49:41

sallam he will see did my messenger allow me to do this or not? And when he allowed me to do it, what was the Sunnah way of doing it? When he is content with Allah as his Lord with Islam as his way of life and with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a religion, Then, and only then shall he taste the sweetness of a man. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses us with the sweetness of Eman that he allows us to taste the fruits of a man in this world and the hereafter. Tawana n hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallam about a kind of diversity Muhammad Ali he also happy.

00:49:45--> 00:49:54

The first question is, is making Tao a part of our Eman? If so, how to give Dawa what I myself have no knowledge of Islam.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

Making Dawa to others is indeed a part of our religion.

00:50:00--> 00:50:38

Allah subhanho wa Taala commands in the Quran, Udo Elisabeth Arabic make our call to the way of your Lord with wisdom with intelligence with good preaching, making Tao as a part of our Eman. However, each person is required to do as much as he is qualified to do. This is where the people get confused. Some people say how can I get that? Well, when I'm not to know them, if you're not an atom, don't give it to us. But that doesn't mean you can't give that what does it mean? You can't give Dawa your people at work? The people whom you mix with? Can you not tell them about Islam? Can you not explain to them what Lyla means? This is that what if a person converts to Islam he doesn't

00:50:38--> 00:51:16

know how to pray, can you not teach him how to pray? This is our cannot teach him how to read the Quran. This is our so each person should do that. As much as he is qualified to do and not go beyond that. nobody's saying you have to travel long distances to give lectures and speeches that type of Dawa should only be done by the people who have some knowledge. But each and every Muslim is required, he is required to do Dawa to the sphere that Allah has given him with. So the brothers who are mixing with members of this society, they are required to give them that power. And it is not necessarily that you give them the power only by speech, you can give them down by actions as well.

00:51:16--> 00:51:53

And this is far more powerful than speech. Give them dour, showing them what it means to be a Muslim honesty, sincerity, hard work. Do you know that when you work hard in your own jobs, this is the type of Dawa the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Allah loves that when you do something, you do it? Well, you have a project to do, you'll be the best amongst your peers to do that project, show the people and when they ask you I say this is what my religion requires of me. That is enough of those who are interested, they will come to you they will say what religion Do you follow? How does Islam require you to be a good you know, IT technician or scientist or whatnot, you will tell them because

00:51:53--> 00:52:27

we have to be good in this world and in the hereafter. So each and every person should have a role in Dawa and in fact, this gives me the opportunity to thank my brothers and sisters of this project, Islam, Bradford, they are Mashallah very active organization, I was just hearing about some of their projects, I strongly encourage you to support them in whatever way you can. Not everybody is going to give that with through speeches only. No. There's also a financial aspect. There's also a skills aspect. If you are good in recording, if you're good and doing some things you can help in this way. And if you're not good in anything that is fancy or good in your efforts, your time, everybody has a

00:52:27--> 00:52:59

few hours to spare. Tell the brothers wherever our project is going, whether it's Islam reference, or any project, I have an hour or two to spare, what do you want me to do? They're always volunteers that are needed to do some work in tower as well. Spreading the knowledge that there's a lecture taking place as a type of that way you can go to your community, go to your friends, tell them attend this lecture. So each and every person should give that hour but to the level that he is qualified to give, don't go beyond the level. If you go beyond the level that is where you get into problems, but each and every Muslim can call to the fundamentals of his religion, and this is

00:52:59--> 00:53:01

something he is required to do.

00:53:03--> 00:53:06

What actions will give us the highest rewards?

00:53:07--> 00:53:19

There are many actions that give the highest rewards, not just one but of them without a doubt in your mind in Allah subhanho wa Taala itself and then the Salah, and then the Salah, can you pick the

00:53:21--> 00:54:06

one of the greatest acts of reward is the Salah. And that is why the Allah subhana wa tada calls the Salah in the Quran, he man, the only action that Allah has called a man. He has called the Sala EMA as Allah says in Surah Baqarah Makana law in McConnell odilia he manickam Allah will not allow your Eman to go to waste. This is a reference to the prayer that was prayed towards breytenbach this towards Jerusalem when the Qibla was changed. The Sahaba said what about those people who used to pray in beta blockers and they died what will happen to them? Allah revealed in the Quran that your EMA and meaning the Salah shall not go to waste. So of the greatest actions of a man is the Salah,

00:54:06--> 00:54:10

also studying Islam, studying Islam. This is because

00:54:12--> 00:54:53

the person who is knowledgeable will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala based upon that knowledge, and no person can feel a lot like that. And Allah says in the Quran, in sha Allah, Allah, only the ruler ma really and truly fear Allah, the ruler, ma They are the ones who know Allah and they know the commandments of Allah. So we study the Quran and Sunnah we studied the Hadith fealty to all of the sciences. This is one of the the fundamental building blocks of human of the actions of of a man that are very praiseworthy to Allah, his Vicar, remembering Allah subhana wa Tada. always remembering him. Whenever we do an act we say Bismillah whenever something good happens with Al

00:54:53--> 00:55:00

Hamdulillah, constantly remembering Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah Allah Allahu Akbar of the accident.

00:55:00--> 00:55:32

Allah is the recitation of the Quran. The recitation of the Quran is one of those acts that will cause you to enter agenda and cause your intercession on the day of judgment and they can go on and on. But the general rule is any good deed, any good deed whatever it is, is a means of increasing your Eman and even abstaining from evil, even abstaining from evil. This tool is a way of increasing from your image when you are tempted to do an evil and you say no I will not do this because of Allah subhanho wa Taala even this is a way of increasing your Eman.

00:55:33--> 00:55:40

Please inform us where we will find that there are that the prophets of the law said a maid is asking to see Allah subhanho wa Taala his face

00:55:42--> 00:55:48

I don't remember the reference offhand but it is found in the book heslin Muslim or the the fortress, the fortress of the believer.

00:55:50--> 00:55:52

Do you remember which book of Hadith is from

00:55:53--> 00:56:08

Allah Minnesota collected enough data which he could show quite a while later, Motorola, Motorola, alumina, silica Zenith any man this is found in many books that have found a lot of women Tamia is found in the fortress of the moment. I don't remember the

00:56:09--> 00:56:53

the quote I don't remember the source offhand but I believe it is activity. However, the dog is Allahumma inni. Luca loves that and nobody either which he can't get him or show her. I want to desire to meet you. This is the show a little while. She is a de la Madeira while our fitness and Melinda and this desire to meet you My death should not occur. When there is a fitna that is harming me. In other words, don't take me at a bad time. Take my role at a good time. allama zeyneb is in an email or a lot beautified us with the beauty of a man and the dog goes on and on. But the phrase that you're asking about is Allah homogeneous Luca lead that another study in which he can get him

00:56:56--> 00:57:00

many sisters find that when they get married, their demand goes down a lot.

00:57:01--> 00:57:49

Problem. What advice would you give a wife whose demand decreases and she can't find support and her husband to help her increase her Eman? First and foremost brothers and sisters realize that have the greatest factors that increases or decreases your Eman is your spouse is your spouse, your spouse will be one of the best ways to boost your Eman or to decreased. Therefore before you get married, make sure that you marry a person of email. The first criterion you should look at before anything else is email. You all know the headings that a woman is married for four things, marry the woman for her religion, you will be successful. So pantalon nothing. Nothing diverts a man more than his

00:57:49--> 00:58:26

wife and nothing diverts a wife more than her husband. So the sister is completely correct in what she said. completely correct. That it is possible we seek Allah's refuge that after a person gets married, you find before he was married, he was active in that work, or she was actively learning and preaching and studying and worshiping. And then we seek Allah's refuge after marriage. All of these things are forgotten. And this by Allah is a big problem. How to correct it. First and foremost, as I said before you get married, choose the proper spouse after you're married. Now you are married. So if the person is a believer and he is a man he is practicing, then inshallah bear

00:58:26--> 00:59:10

with it. Do not go to the extreme of asking for a divorce or anything, bear with it, and pray to Allah. pray to Allah that Allah blesses you and him with a man or if it's your wife You ever heard with a man because a man is coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala so you pray Allah, Allah bless me and my spouse with the man and realize that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves the couple who strive with one another to come closer to him. Allah describes Zachary and his wife in the home can you set your own effing highlight, they will be raising one another to do good deeds were their own and Robin Voila. And they will call out to us in love and interfering and hope describing a couple they will

00:59:10--> 00:59:53

be raising one another. And you all know the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu idea he was seldom that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves the woman who wakes her husband up at night for the hijab by throwing water in his face. And he loves the husband who does the same, helping one another to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala also, also be frank with your spouse, many a time many times we underestimate our spouse and we think I want to be more religious but he or she will stand in my way and we're scared even to approach our spouse. So powerless sit down in a loving manner. And remind your your husband or wife remind them of a lot of the religion and say do not realize that so many

00:59:53--> 01:00:00

of our marital problems are because we don't have a found a foundation a basis. We are fighting we are bickering

01:00:00--> 01:00:07

Because we are not wanting to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala if our goal became the pleasure of Allah 90% of our fights would go away.

01:00:08--> 01:00:41

Start off like this and this is what lie true, it is true. It is not an exaggeration. When you are both wanting to worship Allah, you will sacrifice for each other sake, not because of each other for the sake of Allah, you will overlook many faults not because of each other for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah. So you open up your spouse's heart to becoming more religious. And then you say, let us have practical step, let us start with the five prayers. If they're not praying, let's start praying five times a day. And by Allah, you will be surprised in sha Allah, that in general, you will find this is the general woman. Of course, there are exceptions, that your spouse was feeling

01:00:41--> 01:00:53

the same way, but they were embarrassed to you, and they didn't want to talk about this subject with you. So approach your spouse. And if you find stubbornness, if you find that the other person does not want to change, be patient,

01:00:54--> 01:01:33

pray to Allah and you'll yourself change. Perhaps your actions will be a better dour than your talk. Perhaps when they see that you are a better spouse because of your religion. If it's a woman, she becomes a better wife because of her religion, not because of her husband, the husband will feel soft, and he will say let me see what she is doing. And so he himself become better. If it's a man, the wife will see that her husband is treating her better because he is a Muslim, because he is a woman. So she told one to accept this elitism this level of worship. So realize that that was not just through speech, it is through actions as well. So give that with you to your spouse, not just

01:01:33--> 01:01:47

through speech, but through your actions and inshallah, inshallah I pray that Allah azza wa jal blesses all of us in this regard that our spouse has become a means of coming closer to Allah, rather than a means of becoming distracted from the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:01:49--> 01:01:57

I heard a hadith that the Prophet system said it is not a man's good deeds, but it is a laws mercy that allows a person to enter Paradise. Can you please explain this hadith?

01:02:00--> 01:02:51

Yes, it is true. Your actions in and of themselves will not earn your agenda. Think about it. Think about it. What is gender? It is eternal happiness eternal. Well, like if we were to worship Allah 6070 8090 years non stop continuously? Do you think that an eternal happiness is a just reward for this amount? No, it is not an equivalent reward. You have not earned gender. Imagine when we don't even worship Allah 60 years rather, more than half of our lives are spent just living. How much do we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala so little. So is it a fair and equal reward? Jen? Of course not. Rather Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless us. Yes, the basis of our reward agenda is our good deeds.

01:02:52--> 01:03:25

Oh, the whole agenda, Mr. Malone, and to gender because of your actions because of your deeds. So the basis of entering gender is our good deeds. But Allah subhanho wa Taala will multiply them will magnify these good deeds until we are worthy of gender. Our good deeds in and of themselves are not worthy of giving us gender. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, none of you shall enter gender just because of his good deeds. They said not even euro Salalah he said, not even me, unless Allah covers me with his.

01:03:27--> 01:03:47

So good deeds in and of themselves will not enter you into agenda, but they are the basis. Allah will reward each and every person because of their good deeds, their levels in gender will be decided by their good deeds. All of this because Allah will magnify will multiply, will reward the people, each person according to the good deeds that he or she did.

01:03:49--> 01:04:34

Is every sin forgiven if the Muslim repents, even the major sins? Yes, by Allah, yes, by Allah, there is not a single sin that a person does even the sin of Sheikh except that Allah will forgive it, but only if you repent. And the repentance for sugar, of course means accepting Islam. So even the mushrik when he accepts Islam, what happens? Even his [???] is forgiven for him. So what do you think of the people lesser than him? Do you not know the story of the man in the children of Israel, the man who lived in the nations before us who had killed 99 people 99 people, and murder is the worst sin that you can do to another person.

01:04:35--> 01:04:54

He had not killed 199 for more than the serial killers that we have of our times. 99 and he came in upon a monk, a priest, and he said, Can you ever forgive me? The preset 99 people how can I ever forgive you? He became angry he killed the priest he made 100

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

he made 100 then he felt guilty again, and he went to the sky.

01:05:00--> 01:05:35

They're showing you that the scholar is much higher than the worshiper, he went to the scholar. And he said, Can Allah forgive me I killed 100 people, the scholar said, and who is there that can come in between Allah and His mercy? Who can come in between and block Allah from being merciful, who, of course are lucky and forgive you, but you are living in an evil land, go to a land, so and so a close by city. There are people who are pious, were worshipping Allah worship along with them. So he went on his way to that city, and Allah will that he died on the way to that city.

01:05:37--> 01:06:18

So he hadn't reached the city yet. The angels of punishment came to take his soul, they found the angels of mercy there as well. So they started arguing amongst themselves, each one claiming that they should take his soul, should he be punished or should he be shown mercy? They started arguing so they said, Let the first person who comes by br judge so Allah sent another angel on their path. And Allah subhanho wa Taala told the angel what to say that the angel decided between them and he said, Why don't you measure the distance between the evil land and the good land is closer to the invalid angels or punishment tickets sold? If he is closer to the good land, angels of mercy tickets

01:06:18--> 01:06:56

sold. So they did this. And Allah subhanho wa Taala told the land between him and the evil city to become large, and he told a lie between him and the pious city to shrink. So they found that that land was closer so they took his soul and they forgive him. 100 murders yet Allah subhana wa Tada, forgive it. The sister asks, related to this question, does Allah not say that Allah that He will not forgive the sin of Sheikh? Yes, he does say so. But this is only for those who die in the state of shift. We're not the Sahaba many of them practitioners have shipped before they accepted Islam. How about the Christians and Jews and atheists and Hindus, when they accept Islam? Will Allah never

01:06:56--> 01:07:25

accept their Islam because they committed cheek? Of course not. The meaning of the verse is Allah will never forgive the sin of Sheikh if you die upon it, if you die upon it, as Allah says, and this is quoted in other verses, is that one not and he died well, who are covered in this state of Kufa. So you have to die in the state of Chicago for if you repent, then even the sin of shidduch is forgiven? There is nothing that comes between Allah and His mercy when a person repents.

01:07:27--> 01:07:33

Is it possible for non Muslims to enter Jannah if a person does not have a man,

01:07:36--> 01:07:44

which means he is not a Muslim, then it is not possible in general that such a person will enter Jannah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

01:07:45--> 01:08:25

There is not a single person, Christian or Jew, who hears about me, and then dies not believing in me, except that he will be of the inhabitants of the fire of hell. So it is a person who rejects Islam has basically rejected Allah subhanho wa Taala. As Allah says, In the Quran, that in the dinner in the Lord Islam, the only religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And as Allah says, women he evidently laid on Islam, Medina, for the new cobalamin, whoever comes with any other religion besides Islam, it shall not be accepted of him. So even if the Christian or the Jew worships Allah, and this we're talking about after the coming of the prophecies, and before his coming, then of

01:08:25--> 01:09:02

course, that's a different story. After the coming of the results of the law, why do you send them even if he worships Allah, and he knew of this religion of Islam, he heard about the religion of Islam and he did not accept it, then such a person shall not enter agenda, but even then he shall be rewarded, partially How should we be rewarded for the good that he has done? He shall be rewarded in this world. Allah will not he is all just, even the carpet when he does a good for the sake of Allah. Allah will reward him but not in the Hereafter, he will be rewarded in this world. So whether it be you know, health or wealth or status or whatever, family, children, whatever it is, even the

01:09:02--> 01:09:42

carpet when he does a good deed for the sake of Allah. Allah will reward him but not in the Hereafter, he will be rewarded in this world only. Are there any group of people whose actions will save them from the fire of hell and for the punishment or the grief? As for the fire of hell, we said, If you abstain from the major sins, there is a guarantee from Allah, that Allah will not punish a person in the fire of hell. Yes, there are other punishments that might be done, but not the worst punishment, but not the worst punishment. And there are there is there is more than one verse in the Quran that proves this, that those who do the minor since I live in a tiny Buddha Kaaba

01:09:42--> 01:09:57

in an estimate of a dilemma, those who abstain from the major sins, but they might fall into the minor ones. These are the ones Allah will forgive and not cause to go to the fire of hell. As for the punishment of the grave, there are a number of actions that have been

01:09:58--> 01:10:00

that have been necessary.

01:10:00--> 01:10:27

That seats that protect you from from the punishment of the grave of them is the Shaheed he shall be protected from the punishment of the grave of them is He who recites Tula tabarrok frequently of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I know as Sula that has 30 is in the Koran, it's saved. Its memorizer and it's recited from the punishment of the grave about the lady behind the hill, Mark tsuda. Tabata is of the ways to be saved from the punishment of the grave. And there are other things as well.

01:10:29--> 01:10:39

Is what it was said that to me that just because I wear hijab, I should not feel I am better than a sister who does not my Is this correct? Am I not displaying my email? Can

01:10:40--> 01:10:42

you see we have to differentiate between

01:10:45--> 01:10:47

practicing email and feeling arrogant,

01:10:48--> 01:11:33

practicing email, the general rule is that a person who practices his email and shows it, he prays the prayers, and he gives charity, are the sisters wearing her hijab, the general rule is that they will be better than those who do not. However, Islam is not just the beard or not just the hijab. It is not just these actions. Yes, the sister who wears hijab is better than in general, the sister who doesn't but let me ask you, if she wears hijab, and she doesn't pray, she doesn't pray the five prayers, he doesn't wake up for fudger for example, sometimes, and a sister is there who does not wear hijab, but she prays the five prayers and timing, there is no comparison. The one in this case,

01:11:33--> 01:11:53

who does not wear hijab is far superior to the one who does because prayer is more important than the hijab. Similarly, the sister who wears hijab, or a brother who has his beard, and he feels himself arrogant and better than other Muslims, this arrogance is a major sin. So to feel arrogant, you have fallen into a matrix

01:11:55--> 01:12:33

you have fallen into a matrix and therefore it is possible that a brother who does not have a beard or a sister who does not wear hijab, but they are humble, they are striving to be better. It is possible that person will be better than you merely because you have shown arrogance in what you have done. So yes, the general rule is that those who do good, and they display that good because it must be displayed. They are better than those who do not. But beware, beware of judging Islam because of one act, prioritize. The first and most important act is sila. If a person doesn't pray, it doesn't matter how long his beard is, it doesn't matter. It will not save him from the punishment

01:12:33--> 01:13:09

of Allah. If a sister does not pray, she can wear a niqab. It doesn't matter. So we have to prioritize Islam is composed of many acts, prioritize those acts, the most important have priority. Also beware of being arrogant, because the prophets of the law as Adam said, arrogance is to look down upon other people. So even if you wear hijab, feel humble, feel conscious that perhaps Allah will punish me for another deed that I have done. Don't think that just because I wear the hijab or have a beard, I am saved from the punishment of Allah. No, this is arrogance, and arrogance in and of itself is a major sin.

01:13:10--> 01:13:11

The last question will take

01:13:14--> 01:13:22

I find it difficult to explain why she is the one crime that will never be forgiven. How can we best explain the severity of this crime?

01:13:26--> 01:13:28

Allah subhanho wa Taala created you

01:13:29--> 01:14:15

out of nothing. And he blessed you with all that you have. All that you have, every single blessing that you have is from Allah, for you to reject this, and to direct your acts of worship to other than Allah. How can you compare this crime to any other crime, the crime of murder can be forgiven, as we said, the crime of ship cannot be forgiven if you die in the state of shift. Why? Because what greater sin is there than to deny the one who gave you all these blessings in the first place, or to direct acts of worship to other than Allah, there is no sin that is worse than this, the one who created you and gave you all that you have. And yet when it comes to your worship, you worship other

01:14:15--> 01:14:56

than Allah. And Allah only asks that you worship Him. This is the essence of our religion. This is the meaning of La ilaha illa Allah that I will only worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So there can be no sin that is comparable to the sin of Sheikh no matter what sin you do to a fellow man, even if it is murder. That is a major sin, no doubt. But what blessings that this man will have over you compared to the blessings of Allah for you to reject those blessings. It doesn't matter what good you have done. Allah has only requested us that we worship Him alone. That's all this is the essence of Islam. We cannot even do this and we direct your acts of worship to other than Allah. This is

01:14:56--> 01:14:59

what she is. Therefore Allah has said in the Quran in the law

01:15:00--> 01:15:24

Yo flew under Shaka, he, Allah will never forgive that should be done with him meaning those who die in the state of chick and he will forgive all other sins to whomever he pleases, because she involves the rights of Allah. And it involves giving all creation to our worship to other than he who created us. It is the worst sin and it cannot be compared to any other sin after this. I believe the time is up

01:15:25--> 01:15:32

with our uninhibitedly that have been either mean szczepanik longer or shorter Well, I learned that the sakurako were too late.
