We're moving on with our topic of the draws of the Quran. And we now move to sort of four on verse 74. And this door is a door that occurs at the end of a very long description of those who will enter agenda. Allah describes the people of gender in a very long passage at the end of sort of upon and please read it after tonight's halaqa you understand where this draw is coming the context. And the last characteristic of the righteous is that they make this up. So Allah describes the righteous as those who are humble worry about the right man, a lady named Pune will be hohner and they are righteous and they give Zakat and they pray and they give charity and they don't attend evil
gatherings etc, etc. And then the very last point, when levena Jaco loon and those who make this drop, so this door that we're going to teach you today is a dua that Allah is instructing all of the righteous to make if they want to get to gender. What is this do i robina habel Anna Minh as wodgina was Maria, Tina kurata Yun

That will be a coolness of our eyes, a comfort to our sole corporate means we will find happiness, they're going to make us proud, we will feel happy to that this is our family, make my spouse and make my children, those that will make my heart comfortable. They will make me proud that this is my family, they will bring me comfort in a religious sense and comfort in a worldly sense. Both of them are combined with john added mattina mama and make us role models for the believers. So a few days ago, I think two days ago, we talked
about drought for the parents, we're going to flip it around now today is to our for the children.
And if you look at the Quran, you find without exaggeration, more than half a dozen to us about children. In fact, it is one of the most common themes when it comes to chronic diseases. And a disclaimer, our lecture series does not cover every single chronic drug obviously, dare I say we've covered most of them and dare I say we've covered inshallah, the ones that are very pertinent and practical. Most of them have been done. But today's talk throughout the course of the next 10 minutes, I will quote you at least seven or eight verses of the Quran, all of them do as from the prophets and righteous about children. One of the primary themes of Quranic draws is that parents
should make dua for their children. And I want to ask myself and all of you a blunt question internally answer it. Dear parents, when was the last time you raised your hands to Allah and made a draft for your children? Simple question. When was the last time you raised your hands up to Allah and from the depths of your heart, you made a dua for your children. This is what Allah subhana wa tada is asking us to do. Why? Because when you make draft for your children, not only is it a drug that is necessary for yourself and your family, but you are reminding yourself of one of your most precious obligations by making dua to yourself by making dua for your children, you are motivating
yourself, I had better take care of my children in a religious manner as well. I had better be a role model for them. Making draft for your children actually reminds you of what is really the most precious of this world. And it is not our money. We know this. It is not our belongings of what to use is all the money in the world if our children don't bring us comfort, well, law II we know this those of us that have children we know this is the prize of our eyes. This is why we get money is for the sake of our children, why we go to work why we sacrifice so that they can live a better life. But Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us that along with the physical comfort, you had better
have the religious and the emotional support as well. So the two are for the children that they are righteous. And when we make dua for the children that they are righteous, well then we have also better live up to that as well because we recognize that children learn from their ambience and their environment if we are not worthy to be role models of what use is empty. So in reality do our for righteous children.
A reminder for us to be righteous as well. When we make dua for them, our own bar is raised and we remind ourselves that we need to be role models for them. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, three are the two hours that are always answered by Allah subhanho wa Taala the draw of the one who has been wronged the drought the one who's traveling far away from the from the you know, family and everything. And number three, the death of the parent for the child, do our allotted for the wallet for the unwanted here means mother and father, do our for the parents for their children. A lot accepts the draw of the parents for their children. And that is why there are
so many chronic diseases as I said, I'm going to quote you some of them and there are even more beyond our lecture today. Ibrahim alayhis salam sort of soft fat verse 100, or be heavily meaner salia hain Oh my Lord, grant me children that are righteous Ibrahim is making this I want sadeh children children that are righteous and good. In surah Ibrahim, verse 14, one of the most famous do I recited often when I'm leading Salah in Asia what not I love these series of verses one of my favorite doors that I recite Robbie Gianni Maki masala tea woman's reality. This is Ibrahim making this Oh Allah make me of those who pray and make my children of those who pray as well. This is his
job. He's not praying that Oh Allah admit them to Harvard and yell, Oh Allah make them multimillionaires. That's not his job, his job, make them solid, righteous, make them religious and upright, make them of those who establish the salah in Surah Baqarah verse 28. As he's building the Kaaba, him and his smile, the Kaaba is being built brick by brick. What is the drop on their tongues? robina jan Jana Muslim aney laka woman Ria Tina Mata Muslim at Allah, Oh Allah, the father and son they're making up Oh Allah make us both good Muslims, and from our progeny come forth an entire oma that is Muslim for you. We don't just want children, we want a nation that will be
obedient and religious to you. And Ibrahim two hours answered, every Omer that came after him was from his progeny, they yahood when they were upon the correct theology, were from the progeny of Abraham the Christians as they follow the ISA righteously from the progeny of Abraham and the Muslims and the followers of the process of from the progeny of Abraham and Abraham is saying, Oh Allah from my children, I want Obama's to come that are Muslim or to you submitting to you, and his draft was answered. And he also made up by the way for their physical well being. I'm not saying don't make the other decade to Harvard and Yale go ahead and make that Dora Ibrahim made not Harvard
and Yale he made what as he is in Makkah in the land of emptiness, what did he say? But I'll be in a second to miseria Tb was in a lady disorder and intubating and more album robina up masala fudge, either tamanna necesita, who la him was Oklahoma thammarat.

So he makes dawn for their well being but the drought of solid came first the drought of righteousness came first and yes, you make drought make them good. make them successful. Give them good careers, no problem. But the drought needs to be there. the grandmother of Isa you heard me right the grandmother of Isa who is the
grandmother of Risa. Do you know what I'm talking about? This is the wife of Milan, in Morocco in Milan, right because Milan is the grandfather of the millennium. We're talking about modems, parents, right, the grandmother of Isa, so do I begins progenies before it, it carries down when one generation next door if it is amplified, the next generation it is then amplified, then you get a 70 million from the grandmother she's making do out and she is saying when she is pregnant, that this is the grandmother of Risa, the mother of millennium. She is saying oh I love this child, I will dedicate to your service. Oh Allah makes sure shavon does not affect my child and the progeny of my
child. She's making dua for the infant that hasn't even been born and the infant's infant, and she doesn't know what's going to end up being Lisa. But when you have that doula and you're thinking that long term, then that is what is going to happen. Don't just make do out for your children, make do out for your grandchildren, your great grandchildren like Ibrahim alayhis salam, O Allah from our progeny, especially in this land, where our beloved people are leaving Islam we have to make dua that Allah protect our progeny. Allah make our progeny from those who established or set up Zachary Allah His Salam He also made to our super early embryo and verse 38, kohlrabi hubballi melden

He says give me a child who will be a righteous child, give me a child that will be pleasing to you or Allah subhanahu wa tada in the Quran surah of verse 15, Allah subhana wa tada reminds us of another da, which I wanted to give a separate lecture about. But time is limited. There's only three or four lockers left anywhere. So I have to combine them. I wanted to give a whole lecture about this one ayah Surah four verse 15, from hatay, who should the who when the person reaches maturity, whereby the other by ina center, and he
reaches the age of 4040 is the middle age where you have you're still a life ahead of you and you have accomplished much it is the middle age life at a developer
in a center when he reaches 40 by 40, you have your career, you have your children, and you still have a life ahead of you. That's the should you make this drop, order a b, o z, and a score on arithmetic Allah allow me to help allow me to thank you for the blessings you have given me and my children. Why now Why did a year when I saw the hunter die, and allow me to do good deeds that pleases you, while asleep, the physical reality and I will law make my progeny of the righteous make my progeny of the righteous make them even better than me. So this is the door that the parents are making our law make my children even better than me, make them even more righteous than me. So this
is the door that comes from the love and will conclude again, so much can be said. But this is a very important topic. And my dear brothers and sisters in law he in this land, I cannot think of a more important door that we should be making than for the Islam of our children. I asked you what is more important than this drop that we make dua that Allah protect our children and grandchildren. To summarize from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught us to make dua for our children, even before they are born. When the couple is intimate, what is the other is made at the beginning of intimacy, we're supposed to think of our children that Allah bless us if anything
comes from this night of ours bless us and that we're supposed to make a dua even before there is a pregnancy even before there is a birth we are thinking about that. And when the child is born, there is the door that is made. And then the hadith of Sahih Muslim, whenever a child was born, the unsalted would come after fudger with the baby, it was a daily routine, the baby newborn babies would come to the rescue that the Prophet says so that he would make dua for them and he would make special to offer them and so with the medic, his mother came and he said Yasuda love my son unas, can you make dua for him? And he said yes, Oh Allah, increase his money and give him plenty of
children and as narrated this hadith when he was 110 years old, and he said, I have more children than I can count. And when had judge attacked Medina, we talked about that incident, more than 100 of my own descendants were of those massacred just 100 of his own children were killed by a judge children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, he established an empire by the way to this day, the children of an asymptomatic they are in Medina, I myself used to eat if thought in Medina, at one of the descendants of unassuming nomadic direct descendant, he would have an IF thought in the harem in Medina, still well known, this is the bulk of the draft of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and also my dear brothers and sisters. Be careful that you do not make drama against your children. Mothers, especially mothers, especially control your tongue when you are angry for others as well. But mothers because they interact more with the children, so their love is more and then also they have a health when their anger gets more as well. So control the tongue. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned and he said, Be careful, do not make dua against yourself or against your children. Perhaps you will make up at a time when all doors are being accepted. So the door will be accepted, lateral and physical, logical, don't make against your children. If you're angry, control
your tongue until you calm down, if you need to rebuke rebuke, but do not do what we call good or evil do against your children. I conclude by quoting you a famous incident of football live in a yard one of the famous stab your own one of the greatest of the scholars and he was raising his son and his son was not acting in a manner that they felt was appropriate. So he said, oh well law, you know that I tried my best to raise my son in a good manner. And I wasn't able to do what I felt was the best over law. I entrust his tarbiyah to you now over law you do now that what needs to be done to raise my son, meaning I've done the best I can have a law I'm going to leave the rest to you.
This is the philosophy we all should have as well we do the best that we can. And then we make dua to Allah that Allah now you are the one that that is in charge. You are the Mola and you will take care of them as well. So to conclude, brothers and sisters, this is important.
topic and I know I've got a little bit more than I should but there's very important details here. Make to offer your children regularly make dua for their eemaan for their Islam for their Salah, make dua for the righteousness and yes make the offer their education and their wealth no problem make dua for their health, but make sure the emphasis is given on the DA for the righteousness of bene habla Nam and as wodgina with reality in a quadrilateral union which is done with Lena Emma, I will continue tomorrow and shall listen.
