Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran

00:02:33--> 00:02:37

gives many descriptions of the believers

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

one we like to mention in passing

00:02:42--> 00:03:00

and several want to focus on the one one to mention in passing because last week, not here another place we talked about this in some detail, but a lot Tyler and Luke are n in the arrangement of the quarter n.

00:03:01--> 00:03:15

First description he gives of the believers and Islam mean that he can keep tabula arrivati who Devlin Matata in and let the know you know Nabila.

00:03:16--> 00:03:17


00:03:18--> 00:03:22

he mentioned taqwa, Allah Nina, you mean una bella, right?

00:03:24--> 00:03:32

And then or who then with takim. So the Quran is guidance for the people who possess tequila.

00:03:33--> 00:03:37

And so when we are if we

00:03:38--> 00:03:44

begin to feel that we're not benefiting from the core, and I read the core end,

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

and I'm just not feeling it.

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

We should examine our taqwa.

00:03:53--> 00:04:19

Then he can keytab lowri Buffy who DeLeon mocking his guidance for the people of taqwa, those who are aware and conscious of Allah, those who translate that awareness into an eagerness to implement his commandments and avoid the things he's forbidden. This is the essence of taqwa empty cell armor, which didn't have and Noah he

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

and the you know who Devlin Mata hain

00:04:24--> 00:04:31

and levena you mean ownable right. And then a lot of times it says those who believe in the unseen

00:04:32--> 00:04:56

This is critically important for us, especially in this country. Because we're inundated with materialism. at every level, it's conscious and unconscious levels, our hearts, our minds, our consciousness. our very being is being steeped with materialism

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

as the famous singer says

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

We're living in a material world.

00:05:03--> 00:05:14

And that's no exaggeration. We're living in a material world, all things of value, generally based on their surface manifestation.

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

Even philosophically,

00:05:18--> 00:05:23

our philosophical orientation drifts towards

00:05:25--> 00:05:43

nominalism, or the idea that names have no independent existence abstraction has abstractions have no independent reality associated with them. And this is the the fact that they do is the foundation of any sort of mystery ecosystem.

00:05:46--> 00:06:00

Otherwise, there's no as our scholars tell us, there is no happycar there is no ultimate reality to strive for the only superficial things we can empirically verify and names.

00:06:03--> 00:06:09

We know as believers, that every name has a reality associated with it.

00:06:11--> 00:06:31

That every superficial manifestation has a deeper reality associated with us. And that's the found with it rather, and that's the foundation of meaning. As we become more oriented towards materialism, our lives, our consciousness, our society, becomes more void of meaning.

00:06:33--> 00:07:29

And as our society becomes void of meaning, things such as humanity, things such as compassion, such as mercy, that we lose, begin to lose any impact on the souls of human beings. And we see more and more mercy less than this, we see more and more lack of compassion. There are there there are realities that are happening in our world, that are associated with our being pulled away from the rape, but the believers are told and leadin me known as those who believe in the unseen, those who believe in ultimate reality, those who believe that there is something beyond what we can see. And that includes small things, such as the deeper meanings associated with names or materially

00:07:29--> 00:07:50

manifested substances, and it includes great things such as gender, such as law, such as the essence of a loss of Hannah hautala, which is not materially manifest festy manifested Lacy can miss lee Shea, there is nothing in this physical world that is like Allah.

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

Allah Do you mean on a bill of aid?

00:07:55--> 00:08:33

Go Well, we mentioned this in passing, we want to focus on as a lot Tyler saying, in the core n, again describing the believers and the DNA of Kowloon or abana in men in men for fear Lana vumoo bana joaquina. Other than a sabihin was saw the piano while on 1801 Moon Philippine wild moon Filipino one Mustafa fillerina bill s Hall. So those who say

00:08:36--> 00:08:44

those who say, Allah, Dena, yaku, Luna robina Our Lord, in a manner

00:08:46--> 00:09:08

we emphatically believe in Nana manner, we emphatically believe there's no doubt associated with our belief, there is no hesitation no wavering no no equivocation associated with our belief. Rob banner in men and men their

00:09:09--> 00:09:27

folk few Lana vumoo vana. So, we on the basis of our belief, appeal to you to forgive our sins. And this is the first point we can make about this verse. Is that Allah subhana wa Taala

00:09:29--> 00:09:38

is praising those be leavers who use their belief as a means to intercede with a loss upon Allah tala

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

robina in Nana men

00:09:43--> 00:09:50

for fear Lana so therefore forgive our sins for fear Nana boo vana

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

so it tells us first in and of itself, belief is a powerful is a powerful, powerful reality.

00:10:02--> 00:10:11

Belief is what made musar lead Musab in Romania, to go from the best dress young men and Mecca

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

to a pauper in Medina.

00:10:16--> 00:10:37

But he never wavered because he lost all of his clothes. And when it was time to bury him, if they covered his upper body, his lower extremities would be exposed. And if they covered his lower extremities, his upper body would be exposed. So they had to cover a part of his body with grass.

00:10:38--> 00:10:46

But despite his loss, because of his faith, he never wavered because he realized what he gained.

00:10:48--> 00:11:01

And we should always reflect on what we've gained through our faith. Because many people, they look at what we lost, they lose. I can't go to the club anymore. I'm a Muslim now.

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

You shouldn't even be thinking at that level.

00:11:08--> 00:11:09

can go to the club anymore.

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

Mashallah, you really lost a lot.

00:11:15--> 00:11:35

You lost the burning eyes from all the smoke, you must the nauseousness from all the alcohol films, you've lost the opportunity to get shot by some irate drunk person really lost a lot can't go to the call. But this is a level of some people's faith.

00:11:36--> 00:12:14

They don't look at what they've gained. Because of Islam. They look at what they've lost. I can't do this anymore. I can't do that anymore. I can't go here anymore. I can't go there anymore. But a believer looks at what she or he has gained. And when they look at that, they're not even focused on this world. Because they realize no matter what I gain or no matter what I lose in this world is nothing compared to what faith has opened up for me in the next world.

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

And the verse before this one discusses that

00:12:20--> 00:12:23

lay the net taco and the Ravi hum Jana tune.

00:12:26--> 00:12:32

And those who have, taqwa they have, they have paradise gardens.

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

They have gardens.

00:12:39--> 00:12:46

And as the verse goes on, and expands, then at the end of that versus a while Allahu basura on a bed,

00:12:48--> 00:13:02

which means that Allah is aware of his seeing, what does that translate into a laws aware of our circumstances, and Allah gives to us based on what he knows is best for us.

00:13:04--> 00:13:31

In our circumstances, this is a manifestation of El bossier, the one who sees, but in the right of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that's translated, his seeing is translated into his awareness of our situation, and into his giving to us based on his awareness of our situation. And so he gives us sometimes things that we see as deprivation.

00:13:33--> 00:13:40

But we don't see the gift in the deprivation, because we don't have the wisdom of our Creator.

00:13:42--> 00:13:46

So the deprivation, the gift is in the deprivation.

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

The gift is in the deprivation.

00:13:51--> 00:14:09

But sometimes we don't see it. Because we're not looking with the right eye. We're looking with the eye of our outer vision, when we should be looking with the eye of our inner vision. We're looking with the eye of our bizarre when we should be looking with the eye of our basura

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

the eye of our heart.

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

So a lot of Tyler gives us based on what he knows is best for us. Based on his total awareness of our situation. Well, long bassoon been a bad many times, we might feel some discomfort

00:14:32--> 00:14:38

with what Allah tala gives us because of the shortness of our vision.

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

We don't see with full vision. Some of us need glasses, is a parable for the state of our hearts. Some of us need glasses because we have myopic vision. We're farsighted, we're short sighted. Looking so far down the road. We can't see what's good for us right now.

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

was short sighted It was so obsessed with the minutiae of our daily situation we can't see the big picture.

00:15:09--> 00:15:13

And then when a law gives to us based on his total vision,

00:15:15--> 00:15:37

his total awareness his total comprehension of our situation, we can see the wisdom in that and we'll come to this shortly inshallah. So it says alladhina yaku Luna robina in and then from Philander, Hulu Bana Pina, Devon na, so Allah forgive us for our sins.

00:15:38--> 00:15:44

So this the second point we can make a believer is not immune from sin.

00:15:47--> 00:16:17

And sin isn't the biggest problem in our life. Excessive sinning can be a major problem. But sin isn't the biggest problem. The biggest problem or a bigger problem shouldn't say the biggest a bigger problem is our oftentimes inability or negligence that leads us not to seek forgiveness for our sins and not to repent to a lot Tyler for our sins.

00:16:18--> 00:16:30

And Allah tala tells in the law, yo, Luba Jimmy, ah, Allah forgives all sins, except Sure. In Allaha Yoku, Virginia.

00:16:32--> 00:17:11

So philosophy gives us in the problem, the biggest problem rather is not the sin. The bigger problem is the failure to ask a loss forgiveness for the sin. So when the person when a lot of Tyler mentions this description of the believer, he mentioned the believers faith and lead in a Kowloon or a banner in Nana Manor, and immediately after the faith. The believer seeking forgiveness for this sin for fueling Avenue when our Kannada not forgive us our sins, and ward off the Hellfire from us.

00:17:12--> 00:17:20

Forgive us our sins and ward off the Hellfire from us. So we make the point the believer is not immune from sinning.

00:17:22--> 00:17:43

But the believer should constantly take account of himself or herself and seek forgiveness of Allah tala for their sin for our sins. Robin awful feeling of the winner, while cleaner other than na and ward off from us the punishment of how

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

the next point

00:17:47--> 00:17:51

some of us think we can go out alone.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

We can ward off hell from ourselves.

00:17:55--> 00:18:02

They used to have a television program describing that situation. It's called Mission Impossible.

00:18:04--> 00:18:09

Mission Impossible we can't ward off the torment of hell from ourselves.

00:18:10--> 00:18:21

Only a law can do that. No matter how righteous we think we are, no matter how pious we think we are. We take every meaning every every

00:18:24--> 00:18:56

word escapes me in English as a seven a seven LS Bab the the means that normally lead to certain outcomes. We take that we we try to avoid sin. We try to eat right we try to pray and not eat the haraam not deal with the Haram we try to pray on time we try to fulfill our obligations truphone our word when we give it etc etc. We take all the means but at the end we realize even that ability is something Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us

00:18:58--> 00:19:08

mmm a Lakhani and his poem, his didactic poem, and theology. He says moo Westfield only men are Radha and your sin.

00:19:10--> 00:19:13

So called the lonely men are rather

00:19:15--> 00:19:16


00:19:17--> 00:19:24

male errata and Yassir, he gives tofik. To the one he wants to arrive to him.

00:19:25--> 00:19:28

He gives tall feet to the one he wants to arrive to him.

00:19:30--> 00:19:40

Man, what is tofik? How it fillory bad. It's a lot of time that creating the ability to obey in the servant.

00:19:43--> 00:19:56

So if we're doing all the things that we're asked to do, this is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala is not something we independently initiated ourselves.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

This is a gift from

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

loss upon what Allah

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

This is a gift from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:20:07--> 00:21:00

And we should be cognizant of that. And aware of that. And conscious of that Why? Because this keeps us conscious of a loss upon what Allah and this helps us to maintain taqwa, a tequila, tequila hazlemere count as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to his companion, it tequila hazlemere count. Well, how do we maintain that be be mindful of the law wherever you are. How do we maintain that mindfulness be by remaining mindful of our need for loss upon obatala? in every situation we're in. There's no situation where we're divorced of our need for loss upon Watada. There is no situation that we find ourselves in when we don't need a law. So law tyla tells us yeah,

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

you have no choice and to move for Aurora illallah wa Allahu Allah, honey and Hamid, all human humanity, humankind.

00:21:11--> 00:21:25

No matter if you're a believer or non believer, whoever you are in desperate need of Allah. And only Allah is free of all nice Connie, while honey or honey, and Worthy of all praise.

00:21:27--> 00:21:49

So we that consciousness is the foundation, one of the foundations of taqwa that consciousness of our need for law. And if we're conscious of our need for a law than we're eager to implement his commandments, and we're eager to avoid those things that he has prohibited. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us tofik

00:21:51--> 00:21:53

a lot Allah give us tofi

00:21:54--> 00:22:01

Warfield kundiman arada in your sin, He gives tofik to the one he wants to arrive.

00:22:02--> 00:22:03

Then Hello LA.

00:22:05--> 00:22:15

Then after mentioning the faith, and after mentioning the seeking forgiveness from the sin, reminding us as believers, we might sin.

00:22:17--> 00:22:34

But we have to seek forgiveness for our sins. We have to pray to the Lord to ward off the punishment of hell. And these are associated with the labor This keeps our awareness of the unseen realities and this creation alive in our consciousness.

00:22:35--> 00:22:45

Because when does this forgiveness of the sin benefit us? When we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala when our reckoning is taken, that's associated with the rape.

00:22:47--> 00:22:58

That's when it benefits us. Where is the Hellfire? What pinata wnR that's associated with the hijab. Those things we don't see right now.

00:22:59--> 00:23:21

So this helps to keep that awareness and consciousness of the hide before us and let the you know you mean honorable hibu daelin Mottaki and una bella Hi. So once the believer has affirmed his or her faith, and once the believer has affirmed his or her need for loss of Hannah Tyler

00:23:23--> 00:23:42

then a lot of Tyler describes them and levena Jaco Luna robina Indiana from ulana una joaquina Devon nor a sabihin was saw their pain over quantity in one move piano one Mustang fury era bill as our

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

he says these people

00:23:47--> 00:23:53

who he gives, based on his awareness of Allahu Basilan been a bad

00:23:54--> 00:24:04

Alinea, Kowloon Urbana and fulfill Anna lumada joaquina de la asabi. Rena, the first description he gives of those people

00:24:05--> 00:24:06

is their patient.

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

A saw butina

00:24:10--> 00:24:41

which is a reminder to us that once a person decides to walk the path of faith, he or she is going to be challenged. Here he or she is going to be exposed to difficulties they weren't exposed to before they entered on that path. Every path has its challenges. And the path of faith is fraught with challenges. You will find a person or many of you, those of you who grew up here.

00:24:42--> 00:24:58

You can directly relate I'm sure you know a couple they live together without being married. We used to say they're shacking up. I don't know what they say nowadays. Seven, eight years old. It has such a wonderful relationship.

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

They decided we should get married. We love each other. We've been living together so long. There's no one else for you. There's no one else for me out there. Let's get married. They get married and then they start fighting, they can't get along anymore.

00:25:17--> 00:25:17

What happened?

00:25:19--> 00:25:24

They made a decision when they were living together and fornicating

00:25:25--> 00:25:31

they were doing something pleasing to shape on. So shaytaan left them alone.

00:25:33--> 00:25:47

Once they decided, I'm going to do something pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who has instituted through his prophets, the human institution of marriage that's consecrated in his name.

00:25:48--> 00:26:01

That involves a sacred covenant, a weighty covenant, while covenant men can men conquer the world, welcome them income, Mr. Khan kalida. They've taken from your weighty covenant.

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

Now shaytaan is upset

00:26:06--> 00:26:11

and shaytaan enters into the relationship or formerly he was absent.

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

So doing something pleasing to a loss upon what Allah

00:26:19--> 00:26:28

is going to anger shaytaan and an angry shaytaan shaytaan is going to get busy or formerly he might not have been busy.

00:26:30--> 00:27:28

Allah loves faith allatheena Jaco Luna robina in Nana, Amana, Wahab de la como de man, and a law has made faith beloved to you, because beloved to him. And so the believer has to have patience, so that he or she can stand up to the challenges that face brings. life brings his own challenges. Living in this day, and time and place brings its own challenges. But faith also brings a set of challenges. And one of the greatest weapons the believer has is patience, or saw the arena of Sahabi arena, to patiently persevere, to keep forging on to keep continuing to strive to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. To keep keep putting the world in its place. Many of those challenges that come to the

00:27:28--> 00:27:35

believer, are associated with the world becoming a source of temptation.

00:27:38--> 00:27:43

And the believer has the patient the persevere and keep the world in its place.

00:27:44--> 00:27:55

Keep the world in perspective. And understand I'm just passing through here. So no matter what happens, it can't be that bad. As long as I get home, okay.

00:27:57--> 00:28:07

When you get home, you're on a long trip. Also arduous difficulty. Soon as you started driving flat tire,

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

drove some more, ran out of gas.

00:28:13--> 00:28:17

took three hours to get to a gas station, no one on the road,

00:28:18--> 00:28:19

drove some more

00:28:20--> 00:28:32

got to your destination, people you were supposed to meet didn't even show up. The whole trip is just filled with difficulties with trials tribulations. But when you get home,

00:28:33--> 00:28:51

and you come into the warmth of the home, and as soon as you open the door, the home cooking greets you at the door and your loved ones, they jump all over you. You forget what happened on that journey. You're just happy you're home.

00:28:52--> 00:28:56

So the believer in this world is journeying back home,

00:28:57--> 00:28:58

the home

00:28:59--> 00:29:39

where Adam alayhis salaam started, and the home that all of us are heading towards being nilla Hey, Tyler. And when we get home, we're not going to be thinking about anything that transpired in this world. Because the joys and the delights of home are infinitely infinitely greater than the joys we find when we return home here. A person who is incarcerated when he or she goes home. And the first thing that in their last letter home or they received from their family, tell us what you want to eat.

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

And they opened the door the whole spread is there. Everything is there just like you put in the list. And your loved ones are there and the children that you never saw or the child you never saw. etc. You're not thinking about what you just said.

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

left you thinking about the joy and the delight that you have right now? You're thinking about the relief that you're experiencing, you're thinking about all of those wonderful things you've been waiting so long to connect with, to reconnect with. And that parable is nothing compared to the believer going to his or her true home.

00:30:24--> 00:31:08

There are a lot of calls and refers to as our home tin cat devil Akira. This is the home of the hereafter tilaka devil Acura but who is that home for? Naja Allah hi Lila Dina Allah Yuri do not Lulu and Phil all while FSR that will our cable to Lin mocking. We make it for those who don't desire to exalt themselves in the world, nor to work corruption they're in and the end will be for the righteous. So it says the patient of saw ballerina was saw the Athena the Truffaut so that the test one of the tests that comes with faith is the test of truthfulness. And this literally is a test.

00:31:10--> 00:31:18

A lot of times it reminds us in the core en la flamme meme has he been elsewhere in youth Roku and Yoku mn

00:31:19--> 00:31:24

Ella Dino Jaco Luna robina in mn

00:31:27--> 00:31:57

hace bennacer and youth Roku and your kulu men manna wahana afternoon do people think so the verse says those who say and lithonia colonna, those who say Oh our Lord we believe forgive our forgive us our sins wore off from us the punishment of hell. Those who are patient those who are truthful, a lot of tile in this verse, he says do people think they'll be left alone merely saying we believe

00:32:00--> 00:32:07

has evenness when you Roku Yoku, Amana wahama you have to know and they will not be tested.

00:32:09--> 00:32:16

It doesn't work like that. Brothers and sisters. We're not as we said belief brings its own set of challenges.

00:32:18--> 00:32:36

Believe brings his own set of challenges. Aha, see banjercito and youth Roku, Roku. Then now hula you've done on one accord for 10 Almudena mil cuddly him when we have tested those who preceded them. So this is nothing new.

00:32:38--> 00:32:46

This is nothing new. And when we realized that we realized actually, when I think about it, we have a good

00:32:47--> 00:32:58

say well, we have to deal with Homeland Security and the FBI and who knows and whatnot in this number fobes. And this mesh Allah we don't have to deal with gain is con.

00:33:02--> 00:33:18

We don't have to deal with the Crusaders. When they rolled into Jerusalem, what happened? You take the American islamophobes or you take the Crusaders who came into Jerusalem and kill 70,000 people

00:33:20--> 00:33:28

in a day or two, and the blood was running through the streets like water after heavy rain, which would you take?

00:33:30--> 00:33:40

But those people who face gayness Khan and his descendants, those people who faced the Crusaders, they pass the test of faith.

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

They pass the test of faith.

00:33:47--> 00:34:02

So we by reflecting and keeping things in perspective, and realizing you know, we don't have is so bad makes it easier for us to pass the test that a lot of tile is challenged with that people are tested according to their faith.

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

Our faith is weaker, we don't have their tests.

00:34:09--> 00:34:24

is difficult is challenging here. Would you rather the climate is just so anti muslim? Would you rather have this anti muslim climate, or the anti muslim climate of the Spanish Inquisition?

00:34:29--> 00:34:30


00:34:33--> 00:34:44

that's why it's important for us to reflect on the people who preceded us, while the 10 men left the animal company him we tested those who preceded them Why?

00:34:45--> 00:34:57

fella Alamin no law who led enough solder crew in order that Allah will show which of them are truthful, while they are elemental care DB and show which of them are liars.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

So a lot of times it says a song

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

Rena was saw the team, those who are patient those who are truthful

00:35:06--> 00:35:12

malkani team and those who are devoutly obedient, this is what it's all about.

00:35:13--> 00:35:16

We're here to worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:35:17--> 00:35:32

and I had these courses related that the prophets Allah sudden relates from Allah tala directly directly Yagna Adam in khalaq to calorie, bad Atif Allah tala I created you to worship me Don't play around

00:35:34--> 00:35:38

in new holla to Kelly rabada t fella talam

00:35:39--> 00:35:42

I created you to worship me Don't play around.

00:35:43--> 00:35:44

Life is short.

00:35:46--> 00:36:02

We can have fun we can have light moments, but we should make sure we're not playing around wasting our time squandering our time in this life. This life is not play. This is serious business. Eternity hinges on what we do here.

00:36:03--> 00:36:14

The serious business eternity hinges on what we do here, eternity hinges on this life span that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us in this world.

00:36:15--> 00:36:24

So that should tell us there's no time to play. There's time for just right moments, no doubt. We all have them.

00:36:25--> 00:36:57

But at the end of the day, this is serious business. And we should be truthful as we approach it. And order that along with show which of them are truthful and which of them are liars. I saw the I saw beauty in was well I saw the Rena was saw the Lena when Connie Tina will move your cleaner. So he says those who are patient, a saw beauty and those who are true for authority or pain, and those who who are devoutly obedient bedient carnitine

00:36:58--> 00:37:03

and those who spin well, Moon Sakina those who spin

00:37:04--> 00:37:10

why because those who spend every time you spend freely without it weighing on your heart.

00:37:12--> 00:37:35

You're telling yourself are you demonstrating that this world doesn't mean so much to me? I can let go of it. Once a miser miser can't let go of the world holds on to everything every penny starving people know they should get pulled themselves up from their by their bootstraps.

00:37:36--> 00:37:42

So these struggling people should pull themselves up by their bootstraps like we did.

00:37:43--> 00:38:01

So this is the American individual frontiersmen so you saying they should have several 100 years of slavery and slave and other people, you saying they should commit genocide on the indigenous inhabitants of their land take all their land and resources.

00:38:05--> 00:38:06

That would be absurd.

00:38:08--> 00:38:27

And that's how absurd ignore the structures of oppression ignore ignore the structures of inequality and just tell struggling or press people pull yourself up by your bootstraps without the slavery. It violates human rights accords.

00:38:28--> 00:38:29

Without the genocide.

00:38:30--> 00:38:33

It's not nice. It's inhumane

00:38:34--> 00:38:38

without the usurpation of the resources, but pull yourself up.

00:38:42--> 00:38:43


00:38:44--> 00:39:04

less than the hand and how do you lend a hand by freely spending on what a lot Allah has bestowed upon us? This is a laws Earth. These are la Tyler's resources. This is a law Tyler's welfare to Minelli, landlady italicum give them from the wealth of law that He has given you.

00:39:06--> 00:39:10

That he has given you many many left from the wealth of a law.

00:39:12--> 00:39:21

This is what we have to introduce brothers and sisters. The ability to spin freely, selflessly selflessly

00:39:22--> 00:39:27

without thinking oh this might hurt me down the road. This is my rainy day money.

00:39:28--> 00:39:33

If a lot of Tyler wills you or hillson your earthquake, rainy day money won't help

00:39:34--> 00:39:36

you get an earthquake

00:39:37--> 00:39:47

rainy day will help. This is a laws money and he said there's a right for the poor people. There's a right for the poor people in it.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

One moon feel cleaner, one more stone feeling a bit as har so he starts with seeking forgiveness. He ends with seeking forgiveness. And ladies

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

appa Luna robina in an Amana after the declaration of faith.

00:40:07--> 00:40:43

Robin on Fox Ilana lubaina, forgive us our sins and at the end when will stop fearing a bit as hard. So this is telling us brothers and sisters, we have to approach our fair with a penitent heart with a repenting heart, we have to approach our fair acknowledging none of us are immune from sin. There are people there pointing out the faults of other people, Muslims, this person's in Providence bit odd this person is an innovator, this person is a sellout, this person is a

00:40:44--> 00:40:50

who of us is so perfect, we can point the finger at another.

00:40:51--> 00:41:10

All of us are steeped in sin. All of us fall short of the ideals that have been set for us by those who preceded us. And the ideal set forth by our Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So all of us one Mustang fillerina, plural

00:41:11--> 00:41:28

one Mustang fillerina. Bill Azhar, all of us, each and every one of us has to get up in the latter part of the night before the fabric comes in. And get down on our knees and ask a lot of us

00:41:29--> 00:41:52

ask a lot of give us to look in the mirror. Before we look at our brother, our sister to point the finger at our own heart and acknowledge the corruption dwelling in our own heart. Before we point the finger at our brother, our sister and ask Allah tala forgive us

00:41:54--> 00:42:24

because no matter what we don't do or say concerning what someone else is doing at the end of the day, that's between them and Allah soprano what Allah and our fare is between us and Allah subhanho wa Taala and one of the greatest tribulations Allah cast an individual or people in is to become so obsessed with the faults of others. They don't attend notice and then attend to their own faults.

00:42:25--> 00:42:29

And then Mira last apana wattana carrying a mountain of sin

00:42:31--> 00:42:51

because it just piled up and piled up and went unnoticed. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us to be those people or saw beauty in wasaga pain well only to remove the painter almost takfiri in a bill as har aku Callie Heather was stopped for lolly welcome. Lisa Mineo call Mr.

00:43:25--> 00:43:29

Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala look at the beauty of our religion.

00:43:31--> 00:43:47

The beauty of our religion a lot of Tyler lets us know how easy it is for us. So far, we want to be forgiven. Just ask Allah to forgive him to be forgiven. That's simple. Just ask a lot with sincerity to be forgiven.

00:43:48--> 00:44:24

No rituals, there's no intermediaries. We don't have to go to the Imam and a private box and sit before the Imam and plead for forgiveness. We don't have to pay any money. Like if you pay so much for the building project I'll your sins will be forgiven. does ask a lot. Just ask Allah very simple. This escolares Abu hurayrah mentions at the end of a not a lengthy narration but in the interest of time he said everyone will be forgiven Elad Manya

00:44:25--> 00:44:42

everyone will be forgiven in Ramadan. And this applies outside of Ramadan. Illa mania backs up Manu refused woman yet Bella Abba hooray Rita. Who would ever refuse man yet by any stone federal law one who will refuse to ask Allah for forgiveness.

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

Just ask.

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

Patience. This patient put the world in perspective and just keep on moving along down the road. It's not complicated. There'll be ups and downs. There'll be obstacles there'll be separate

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

Next, we just keep on going. That's all. The little rabbit right with the drum can do it just keep going and going and going. Surely we can do it. Our battery is better than ever ready. It's called the heart.

00:45:17--> 00:45:34

It calls the heart and unlike the ever ready battery, no matter how long it lasts, sooner or later it dies. Every minute is being used, it gets a little weaker until it dies. Every minute we're truly using our heart it gets a little stronger

00:45:35--> 00:45:39

until at least eternal life in paradise.

00:45:40--> 00:45:58

is an amazing battery. The more you use it, the stronger it gets. But how do you use it use it with prayer use it with fasting use it with your aura of color you use it with remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala I don't know feeling muslimeen one Muslim at one moment in one minute
