Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah he was having him on Saturday with me was the local municipality of koko de la pena. attina. fidelia has a novel as well as an opener but not Santa Monica de la Rocha do Thank you brother Amir online for on Facebook for telling me that you hear me Cistercian meme. here about a fluffy cul
de sac we'll have a look for coming out Welcome again to a juice a day. Today we will be covering the 24th juice of the N 24 juice of the UN has three sutras in it. It has surah number 39 surah Zoomer sort of number 40, surah Horford and surah number 41 Surah facilite these are the three beats sutras that are here I say three main because sorta Zoomer started actually in the 23rd years. And so the first syllable end in the next year, so it's comprising of these three all together.
I think that we have the window open and you can hear people
going by on their bikes and whatnot. I don't know where they're going. But still, they're going somewhere. And the journey begins at Surah zomer is number 32. But in fact, we will begin from the very beginning of the just excuse me from the very beginning of the sutra, because we did not get a time to study a Zoomer last time. The theme of surah Azuma that we will look at is sincere devotion to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what does that sincere devotion to Allah represent? How does it manifest itself? This is you can see like, you know, a running theme of the Quran the Quran speaks about this at all times. If Laos sort of class like the prophets or some said, is a third of the
Quran, not obviously in its length, but the content the idea of sincere devotion, a floss is like a third of the Quran message. But in this sort of particularly you will see the phrase Muslims fall in love with Deen more or less Allah Houdini mulus which is the meaning of the word or the which is the derivative of the word is Laos, meaning the one who is sincerely devoted, you will see this word repeat a lot and thus it is pertinent that we build on that theme in this surah inshallah, let's look at it as Zoomer begins with a less popular thing than zielona keytab. Even a lot Hill Aziz and Hakeem, this book is sent down by a law by God, the mighty the wise, in Tanzania in a keytab I will
have It is we who sent down the book to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam bill happy with the truth. This is truthfully from Allah subhanho wa Taala. It comes with a right will Huck means it has you right? And will have P is it's truthful, what it contains, and it comes to set what is false, it comes to clear that record and make it true, right, a false narrative. It's here to remove that and provide the true narrative. So Bill had, you've seen this expression a few times. But all of those meanings go together in this expression, far with the law. So worship God, Muhammad Sallallahu, a dean with your total devotion and that is where we get the idea of this sincere
devotion to Allah subhanho wa Taala. calculus is the word if Klaus is, you know, one of the it's where it's derived from mcculley sallallahu. Deen means the acts of worship. A Deen represents what a person is doing in terms of
actions that that the actions that are considered to be rituals of the faith, like worshiping Allah subhana wa Taala like praying or fasting or giving charity, those actions are in this expression at Dien, the religion. So whenever you do something that is of a Deen, an action that is motivated by the religion, then it must be done more often with total devotion to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
This is something that a lot repeats here Allah Allah had Dino Hollis, it is to God alone that sincere obedience is due who else but Allah deserves sincere devotion, a deal again, actions that are done, that our actions have faith or the motivation to do them is faith that the motivation of it should be a lot higher dollar to please Allah subhanaw taala
The goal of it should be more precisely, should be to please Allah, Allah alone and nobody else. Allah contracts contrast that with one living at the human only earlier. And then those who take other guardians besides Him, and they say we serve them only that they may bring us nearer to God, my novel Doom in LA New Madrid Muna Illa he zolfo This is the mantra of the people of Pradesh. They're like, yeah, we know Allah is the Creator. You know, Allah is the one who sent Abraham. And we know Allah is the one that says his house, the Kaaba, but these gods and idols that we've made, that's what our fathers used to do. And we do this because this brings us closer to Allah, you know,
the people who would make Hajj and then they would modify the LBL Baker lahoma bake, they would say, the baker lahoma bake, and the baker lashley, gala, gala bake Illa shuriken. You know, the W e x, there you have no partner except the partner that you are happy with. So, in a very strange way of approaching the religion, but that's how they were and that's the people the Prophet son was sent to. So now Allah, Allah wants to eradicate this concept. You cannot have somebody between you and Allah, who's speaking to Allah on your behalf. You speak to Allah, yourself, you worship Allah, yourself, you don't need anyone that serves to bring you closer.
Who is your path to God? It is you who will be able to directly worship long.
Lost part of that says, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Casablanca, God does not guide anyone who is bent or lying and is a disbelieving liar. The implication is there that when they think about this excuse that they perform or this reasoning they provide for worshiping other than Allah, deep down, they realize it's not a true reasoning. There is some other motivation for them to worship these gods that's there. And that is what a lot is, seems to imply here. A lot does not guide those who are Gods even conferred by this ayah he speaks about a last part Allah does not need your devotion. I am number seven. He says in duck fluorophore in aloha Vani Yun uncom. If you are ungrateful, then
remember that God has no need of you this devotion that we are putting forward to Allah, it is for our own benefit for our own good, whether your body or your body heal Kufa, it is not that he is. It's not that he is indifferent to what people are doing. Allah has given people the choice, and whatever choice they make the power to make the choice was given to them by a loss partner. But now the choices that they're making a loss pantalla is not indifferent to them. What are you calling ibid Hilco for he is not pleased by in gratitude of his service or this belief from his service. He is not pleased by that. We're in touch guru. If you are grateful, Yahoo local, he is pleased to see
that in you. their devotion is for you. My devotion is for me, all of us are sincere devotion to Allah is for our own benefit. And a lot appreciates it when we are grateful he is not appreciative when someone is ungrateful. Also accountability in Islam, as we've seen many times this phrase repeat in the Quran. And this phrase repeats for a very specific purpose to emphasize this point whenever the concept of accountability is discussed this point is to be emphasized. Again and again. Because it's so critical. What does he do was to withdraw, withdraw, oh, no, so sure shall bear another's burden. You cannot blame someone else for your misguidance you cannot say on the Day of
Judgment, because of them. I was misguided, because everybody was doing wrong. I did wrong. That is not an acceptable excuse. That is not an acceptable way of that's in fact a, a, a misdirection from its shunning accountability. And while others it was it was awful, no one shall bear another's burden. Allah makes that clear, you are responsible for your own choices and the consequences of your choices. And as for your own benefit, Allah doesn't need that devotion from you. A lot speaks also about this, that he,
you know, people's attitudes will actually often tell their beliefs, their actions speak sometimes, in fact, most times louder than their words. Here is an action of a person who, you know, maybe on the surface is a devoted person, maybe this person has a beard and wears octopi or something. But what happens when bad stuff happens to this person, that's the telltale sign whether must sell in Santa buuren there are a baboon, even LA. Now when something bad happens this person turns to his Lord makes
Dora Ola, Ola, Thelma Eva Hawa who never met a man who nasima can rule in a human cabin. But once he has been granted a favor from God, he forgets the one he had been praying to a jar I didn't know he under the legal answer Vila, our new little answer really Excuse me. And even worse, he sets up rivals to God to make others stray from the path. This is the fickle nature of humans, that when you need Allah, you turn to Allah when you don't need Allah in life. Or you think you don't need Allah, you ignore or even worse, become someone who actively deters. That is such a
sign of somebody who hasn't understood faith and clearly is not devoted to it. And last potluck points out here. Right Afridi mentions that devotion is for our own benefit. He talks about knowledge and action to the contrary, people who understand the faith, what are they like? What is their devotion? What does it look like? Look at this a man who upon it, and a surgeon will call him and it is he who prays devoted to God in the hours of the night, prostrating himself and standing in prayer who is ever mindful of the life to come and hoped for the mercy of his Lord? Is he like the one who doesn't do all of this? Is he like the one who's mentioned in the ayah before this person,
he is devoutly praying to Allah and His actions like praying to Allah in good times and bad times. Patient when good stuff, excuse me a patient when bad stuff happens, thankful when good stuff happened. And that is expressed by his devout worship of Allah in the hours of the night when it's easy to not worship Allah, you're sleeping, you're relaxing, but this person is sacrificing the very pleasant sleep for prostrating and standing in prayer. This is the expression of how this is the gratitude expressed in action. This is devotion in action.
And Allah says this is a person who's not like the one who isn't doing this. It's this is a hypothetical way of the Quran speaking, you know, comparing two objects, but the second object that's the opposite of the first is dropped from the sentence. It's implied. And that implication is as you can see in the brackets here, and say, are those who are who know equal to those who do not know but Hollister Latina, Allah Muna Valentina Allah, Allah Mona, such an amazing implication here, the ones who know the faith, knowledge, True Knowledge means action, action in showing gratitude to Allah, tala good times and bad times, not being a fickle person who fluctuates. When good times are
there, you're negligent bad times there you're, you know, depressed. No, no, this is the person who is in a constant state of gratitude and patience to illustrata that knowledge leads to that action. The knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah leads to the action of praying devoutly, to Allah, Allah, this is how a lot calls Yeah, and the moon, because knowledge in Islam, by default necessitates this kind of action. Knowing this just theoretically means nothing, if you can act upon it. And this is such a beautiful implication of this ayah we asked a lot to make us people have knowledge and action. I mean, me speaking also people knowledge and action Allah says that I number 23 that he has
sent down the best message a scripture that is, quote, similar and oft repeated guitar bomb with a shabby hum Matheny, wood that was a shabby one is as you can see, there are three three adjectives for the Nasrallah Arsenal had this the best message, three descriptors of it. Description number one is keytab it's a book the idea of the book here is a powerful because when the Quran was being revealed, it wasn't a compiled book format, like we have today with us, it was I had never revealed and this is a last foreshadowing it will all be into a compiled book also the idea of the book is that it is something that is to be you know, a book is something that is binds you, right like a
coup de ballet, Kumasi and it is written upon you that you fast so it is a book in its compiled form, and it's something that people live by it's not just like a novel that people read and then put it away after enjoying You know, this is an A book that is lived keytab and Mutasa, behen second qualifier which is, it is it's similar to, like the word verses are similar to other verses and we've seen this and the Quran has this beautiful
style of what you would say
It's, there's a book called
in pedagogy called, or a theory, excuse me, in pedagogical, when you were teaching something, especially to a developing mind, you want a steady dose of repetition. Because when that developing mind reads that something the first time, it will take something out of it, and the next time when they read the same content, they will take something else out of it, the next time they read something, the same thing, they take another layer out of it, and at a certain point, the benefit becomes like diminishing, but there is a very clear value for a developing mind. This is pedagogy. Of course, when for in repetition, there is a very clear value in repetition, for the developing
mind, now apply this concept to not just pedagogy, which is for young kids. But for all learners, there is a clear value in something that repeats, but isn't repetitive. And that's one with the shabby one is it repeats, but there is an extra layer added every single time that example or that story, or that instance is mentioned. And that is the beauty of Muta shabby, it is not repetitive. It is, you know, repeating something or building upon something that you have that's been spoken about before, but then adds a new layer. And the idea is the one who's reading it either appreciates the new layer for the first time or as they're experiencing this ayah maybe in a different stage of
the life that brings about a new realization that they hadn't felt before. This is a very common sensation when reading the Quran the Sahaba when the promiseland passed away the Sahaba were in chaos and Armando the Allahu and he heard a worker's Vic saying that mama Muhammadan rasul Allah who son of a matter of booty lamp Allah tala kabhi comb, the messenger is this Muslim is just a messenger like many before when he dies or is slain, will you then desert the religion and then, at that point, realize that the problem has now passed away now. Now the realization hit him and they said, it's as if I've heard this ayah for the first time today. He knew the idea before but the
experience on what he was going to do, the ayah brought a completely new experience to it with a sharpie and a beautiful description, the Quran that allows us to benefit again and again and appreciate the subtle nuances of the Quran. In its similar style masani it's something that's oft repeated. This is from the person who is reading it Matheny is the one who's reading it, and we read it often in our Salah. So the Fatiha is called sublime mineral mahtani, the seven oft repeated verses because we read them the most often of all sources. And that is how the Harada is supposed to be a binding book, something that its nuances are appreciated. And it is read often and pondered
upon often. And when that is done that knowledge and action is together what happens to share a room in Hulu, the Latino genre boom, that causes the skins of those in all of their Lord to creep. It causes the hair on their on their skins to stand up because of the fear of Allah subhanaw taala and then
through mottolino Judo hula, hula boom illogical law and their hearts and then the skins and their hearts soften at the mention of God. This is a sensation that Allah is describing. That is frankly unlike any other sensation that you will ever experience the experience of reading the Quran, and it moves you to tears out of the fear of Allah and then it moves you to tears out of love of Allah. Those two things happening at you know, back to back. That is an incredible sensation. Urlacher who the law that is such as God's guidance, He bestows it upon whoever he wills while you Lily level from Allah whom in had been one who, but no one can guide those whom God's God leaves the straight
We ask Allah protection from that amminadab anatomy, sincere devotion to Allah. As I mentioned, Islam is mentioned in the surah a lot. Notice how many times and 11 were in the middle to an era with the Lucha Muslims unloading. I have been commanded to serve God worship Him, dedicating my worship to him entirely. I hear is a prophet SAW sanlam and I have been commanded to be the first to submit and I fear if I disobey my Lord, the punishment of a terrible day, so hung up the Prophet is afraid of the punishment. What about the rest of us and we should be
Way more afraid of that and say it is God I serve sincere in my faith to Him alone or the law I will do Mukhlas Allah who Dini. As you can notice this surah repeats this idea because that is one of the major themes of the Quran and in this surah it is highlighted more than others, sincere devotion to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The Prophet also as he's explaining that I am worshiping Allah alone, he says, fire I will do my [???] to me dooney as for ourselves, worship, anything you please besides Him, choice is yours, you have to pay the consequences, or you have to live with the consequences of your choices. The real losers will be those who lose themselves and their family on the Day of Judgment. And that is the most obvious loss Allah danika who will host Ronald mubin
illustrata talk talks about who is more worthy of being devoted to by who really is worthy of devotion? Is it like other deities, rocks and stones? A human being who was a good person perhaps, or definitely was a good person, but you're devoting yourself to this individual as a god? Or is it a lost part of that a lot of aloha masala Rosalyn
if he shoulda woulda Shaka soon Rajan solamente Rajan.
Allah gives an example, sets forth a parable.
There are two men, there are two men, one belonging to many masters, all disagreeing with one another, and another belonging entirely to one master, are these two equal in comparison, are these two the same, this example is a little difficult for us to comprehend. Because we don't have the we don't see the reality of, you know, servants and slaves around us at all times, it's not an easy thing for us to visualize. In fact, it's not something we have visualized was not there anymore for us, for us to see. But back in the day, when you had servants on slaves, you can have a slave who was under the ownership of a person they were in the ownership of a individual, or they could be in
ownership of a collection of individuals. Now, what Allah is saying is the one who is owned by one individual,
like the one who is owned by a collection of individuals, the one who was owned by one individual is getting a very clear direction. This is what you do this what you don't do. And then he can fulfill his tasks, whereas the one who was owned by a bunch of individuals, for whom? Buddha shocky, soon they're all disagreeing, they're all at conflict of what they want him to do. I can this one servant, do anything as equal to the one who is receiving commands from one master? No, the one who has multiple conflicting orders will be confused, the one who has one clear straight orders will have clarity, and then can proceed forward and do what he has to do. What's the point of this
example. The other example is, if you are dedicated to worshiping Allah, then you have clarity in life, if you're worshiping a multitude of gods and deities are conflicting with or you're worshiping a, you know, you're you're part of a faith, were the tenants of the faith, save monotheism, but it's practiced becomes polytheism, you are left in a state of confusion. You're confused, because you don't know what which direction to turn, just like the slave owned by multiple people.
And thus, the one who is again logically just apply it to your world, the one who is taking orders from one source will have so much clarity. So how does that not work for a Lost Planet Allah, you take commands and you're only the word to Allah that will give you clarity and pristine, pristine view of looking at life Alhamdulillah Praise be to Allah but a pharaoh whom Allah Allah moon, but most of them have no knowledge, most of them do not understand this. This, by the way, also applies in like, incorporation, you don't have to be like a servant or a slave to see this. If you have a person with many supervisors miskeen is, uh, you know, he doesn't know what he's doing. Whereas if
there's a clear hierarchy, a clear process of making decisions and issuing directives, and things move very smoothly in a very nice way. And so you see that as a beautiful example that allow users to highlight the idea of devotion to Allah alone is the right way, the logical way, the way that gets you the best results in this life and the next in the camera, you don't even know how many times you will die or prophets, Allah and they too will die. Life is not going to be forever. There has to be some urgency in fixing our situation before it's too late. Because on the Day of Resurrection, you shall Place your dispute before your sustainer that is He will judge between the
people he signed for
Word is a sign of those who are not devoted, you know lost power points out a sign or people who their attitude their actions again, speak louder than their words and speak to a lack of devotion by the muscle inside a Lutheran dharana when affliction befalls men he appeals to us. So Maya will know who they are Mata Mina Allah nama booty to Allah in but when we bestow a favor upon him he says all of this has been given to me because of my knowledge. You see this example is very similar to the example that we saw here right at the example of i a number eight I'll actually contrast that for you whether must sell in Santa d'Or right I number eight whether domiciled in Santa Barbara same
similar beginning but in IE number eight, it is the arrow bahaman even la he he calls to Allah and then when the call when the difficulty passes
he forgets nesea makan nesea maganda do he forgets the one he has been praying to? Now check out the attitude here. Same same start something bad happened okay. Dinah same response do are all low low. Okay. So money the whole was not who never mutton same response from Allah response to Dora takes away the misery.
What is now this person's actions? What is their attitude? What is it that they do or say, this time is a little different in number 82 either. All of this has been given to me because of my knowledge because of me. I'm the guy. I'm the one who made it happens. I got It's me. Right. And this is the attitude that he has now that he's crossed the difficult situation that he was in a battle here fitna, Allah says, No, this is a trial. This kind of arrogant attitude is a trial, this kind of in gratitude is a trial. This shows a lack of devotion. It shows it by luck in that song, Laila moon, that most of them do not realize, again, I wanted to highlight this because you see, the example
has a similar beginning, but a different
ending. And the end result of all of these is showing that this person doesn't have a correct understanding, nor Correct, correct devotion. But there is nuance, there's subtlety, there's different different cases, and that one case will apply to one person in one circumstance, and the other would apply to another in another circumstance. And another more deeper study would be why does Allah mention this over here? And why does he mention that over there, and all of this has this beautiful, harmonious link together? This is the amazing nature of the Quran. And I want to again highlight this little bit for you to show you this aspect of how Photoshop Photoshop behind masani
It is similar yet different, repeated in, in in some certain ways, but definitely not repetitive.
Allah mentions that look, this is something people said before Allah, Allah Dena macabre him, okay. They had this kind of attitude. It didn't help them in any way. In fact, what had happened is that they're a Saba Holmes, he had two markers of what they had done wrong, you know, it recoiled upon them it, you know, the acumen struck them because of what they had done. What all of you know, vola woman Hala, today's wrongdoers shall also have evil or their deeds recoil upon them, woman will be more disease and they will never be able to escape our plan they will never be beyond a lust patatas reach the idea is this attitude this rotten attitude people had before they thought they could get
away with it. They couldn't today people who have this attitude should also realize they won't be able to get away with it because no one is out of a loss reach but Allah highlight something interesting here as a tangent he says understand people owe them ya know, and a lot of tourists Kadima Yasha, who will put them to the next not know that God grants abundant sustenance to anyone he wishes and give sparingly to anyone he pleases. Idea is tests in life doesn't mean you stop being devoted to Allah and stop worshipping Allah. Just because you call upon bad times doesn't mean you quit. Or just because you have less doesn't mean that Allah doesn't love you or once evil for you.
Absolutely not. This is a laws test. This is a laws decree yes to this Kadima, Yeshua waiuku, this is how Allah operates. So hon Allah and in that in the Viva La Italico Moon is surely there are signs
This assigns for those who believe.
Sincere devoted Toba, Allah talks about people who are sincerely devoted to Allah and make Toba. You know, we all gonna make mistakes we all maybe we make a made a mistake of like this person over here, maybe right maybe we've had this kind of bad attitude maybe we've done these kind of things or said these things are inappropriate. But it's never too late until it's too late meaning when it's time to go, it's time to go. But anything before that it's not too late. julio de La Nina sort of who I love and to see him say God say a lot tells people all my servants who have committed excesses against their own souls. Lotta for Natoma Rahmatullah. They're not the spirit of God's mercy in the
law for the new virgin Jamia, for surely he forgives all sins blowing, but we're never beyond hope. We're never at a point where we've done too many bad things. In fact, despairing of Allah's mercy, thinking that Allah will not forgive us or Allah will not help us become better and will not help us change. That is actually a bigger sin that any sin a person could have committed, that despair is more harm than other things that we are considering that we consider to be Haram. Because it is not the motto like the Quran says the person Romania Romania could not be in love balloon only the one who is misguided is the one who disappears of Allah's mercy, but may
in the hula de su Mirabella in the common capital, only those who reject Allah or don't understand Allah only they are the ones who despair of Allah's mercy. The one who understands Allah knows are most forgiving and merciful. Allah tests us, He gives us good and that's a test for our gratitude. He gives us evil situations or bad situations. And that's a test of our patience, but he is Forgiving and Merciful. He is going to overlook our flaws. As long as we enable a lot of beacon we turn to our Lord with us the mu level and submit to Him before probably a Yeti cooler that before his punishment overtakes you. Well, Samaritan saloon colada here is a reference either to a divine
punishment, or more precisely, it would be a person at the pangs of their death, about to die. Right. And, as you will see, what amuro Assalamu alaikum follow the best aspect of what is sent down to you from your Lord, not a great translation. Follow axonemal on Zilla eneko follow what Allah sent to you, a center that is best for you. That is best for you, mean company and yet the akula dub before this, the punishment discourage of Allah comes upon you until Natasha rune. This idea of Isaiah here being punishment. I would say he is more precise that this is death. Because look at the eye after this, and the whole industry has Rama forward to Peter Miller. And as for me, how I've
neglected what is due to God. And having been one of those who scoffed out the pool Allah, Allah had any luck Good luck looking to mingle with the thing or if only God had guided me I would have been surely of the God fearing out of hula Hina Terra de Bella anally Cara akuna Minal Marcin already he may see the punishment, he would say, if I would have one more chance, a second chance that I would be among the doers of good meaning, at that time, when you are about to die. It's too late to say, Can I get a second chance? It's too late for that before that, your chance is there as long as you are repenting to Allah and as long as not despairing about last mercy, we asked a lot of makers are
those who sincerely repent to him, this ayah that we just read, the one sincere devote devoted Toba. This is the ayah according to many of the Sahaba and scholars, the ayah that gives them the most hope. The most hope that they get is by reading this ayah which is not to ever despair of Allah's mercy never think that we're too bad. We're beyond hope never to ever think that we think that Allah will always turn us around and make us better people will enable us to become as long as you take the first step towards him. Allah smart Allah says the opposite of devotion is shift.
However, later on later, Moroni, I will do a u haul. jehlen ignorant people would you been me to worship someone other than God? Because that doesn't make any sense. Allah God who here elago living them in public and that's part of the highlights the devastating reality of schilke it has been revealed to you and those before you that if you were to ascribe any partners to God, all your work
We'll come to nothing yeah matana Rama, Nicola takuna, nominal ha serene. The Prophet is being told your deeds will mean nothing if you did shoot, what about the rest of us? What about the rest of us, but in law I would therefore you should worship Allah and Allah alone and we have those who are thankful.
Allah is great. This should lead us to devotion Mama, todo la casa de no just estimate have they made of Allah such as is due to him. But on the Day of Judgment, the whole earth will lie within his grasp, while the heaven will be folded up in his right hand will reread him Exalted is He above what they associate. Now Allah mentions a amazing scene, the result of those who were devoted and the result of those who were not devoted to him.
First he describes what's going to happen in the Day of Judgment. menoufia cough is sore, the trumpet shall be blown, and whoever's in the heaven and whoever is on the earth will fall down in a swoon for sorry that the first trumpet will end everything and everyone except the last part that will be alive, though. Mundo filosofi, okra and then the trumpet will be known again. And that's when everybody will be brought back to life. For example, am William loon, they shall rise and gaze around them what happened, what just happened? We're all back alive and all these people are alive again. What is going on? Well, a shocker the Arduino behind the earth will shine with the light of
its Lord, and the book will be laid open and the prophets and witnesses will be brought in. The profits will be questioned before the people because they were responsible for conveying the message that people will only Elena home will have and judgment will be passed on them with fairness, and none will be wrong, and every soul will be repaid in full for what it has done. While he Allah is fully aware of what they did now was he called Lavina. The end result of those who rejected were not devoted, but seacology naka de la Johanna Matsumura, those who rejected the truth will be led to hell in throngs. Zuma is also in groups grouped together, a grouping of, of criminal activity,
groups of criminals together, all who were participating in the same type of things together, all thrown into the fire held together had that either Joe or her when they reach it. That gates of Hellfire 40 had a boo boo ha, its gates will be opened, what call Allah home has an A to her, and it's keepers will say to them, let me give them lucidum men come have messengers not come to you from among yourselves who can read you the revelations of your Lord and warned you about meeting him on this day? All obala they will answer Yes, they did come well I can help god kennametal either be lol caffeine, of the decree of the punishment has been proved true against the deniers of the truth.
The lead the Hulu, Baba Johanna, it will be set to them enter the gates of hell, Khalid enough he had to stay there in forever. And what a terrible place for the water company. And for those who were who were full of contempt. This cannot be the truth. This person cannot be a messenger. Who are these people that tell me what's right, I am better than them. That idea of kibble
bottle happy rejecting the truth of humbleness and contempt and looking down at people be some as well with a kabillion that's the end result. Or that's where people will find these people will find themselves in the fire of hell. We asked for less protection from this. Two points to make about this. I make point number one and point number two I'll make it after the next I a point number one here is look when these people are going to the fire of hell them a keepers which are angels of the fire, they will say have not messengers come to you from among ourselves, commit to you the revelations of your Lord and warned you about the meeting on this day. Right? They will say that
this is meant to be a bit of like extra punishment, the punishment of regret, but also is a means to highlight to us that Allah will not put somebody in in Hellfire excuse me alone will not put somebody in Hellfire who did not receive the message. Although Bella yes they did come. No one will mistake in the end end up in the fire of hell. The one who's in the fire oh hell would have rejected the message or would have varied the desire to worship a lot to find a lot deep within their hearts and would have effectively choked to death until their life became just eating, drinking and enjoying themselves. That is a situation or a person who has received the message and rejected the
message. It cannot be that someone
Just mistakenly is put in the fire because this is very explicit. Everybody going to the firehouse will say, Yes, we knew about it. Yes, we heard about it. Yes, we are wrong. All Obama. Yeah, we heard about it. And now we're here. And we're not we haven't been shortchange what we got was just and so Powell has an amazing that's something that's amazing that a level of wrong anybody, even the ones going to the firehouse will say justice was done to us. The second thing i'll talk to you about here was CFO, Latina, taharah, bongi lagenda tomorrow, but those who fear the Lord will be led in groups towards paradise in groups, Allahu Allah, and what type of grouping that will be, but perhaps
people who have suffered similar situations, went through similar trials went through perhaps, you know,
like maybe they didn't live in the same era, but, you know, they were like kindred spirits. They were like kindred spirits. So they're joined together and they're sent to paradise together.
When they reach its gate, when they reach its gate will be opened as keepers keepers will say to them, peace be upon you. You have done well enter Paradise dwell in it forever. So Pinilla now the subtlety that's lost in the transition is as follows. You notice here was sequel, Latina, cafaro, Ella Johanna Matsumura, Hata Elijah foot, he had a Baba
food he had here had the ADA, Jehovah were food, he had a blah, blah, ababwa. See, here it is 40 Hut over here is worth 40 there's an extra Well, okay, the implication is as follows. When the people of Hellfire reach Hellfire, when they get there, then the gates will be opened. Okay, so now imagine the terrifying sensation, you hear the fire of hell, and it's, you know, it's it's howling. And you hear the people in it, and they're crying, not us, but the person will be led there. And as these people are going there, they still are not, they still are in a type of suspense. Where is the firewall, and when they finally get there, that's when the doors are open. And the shock of it hits
them just as bad as the punishment of it. They ask a lot of protection. And then the ones who are going to Jenna,
what would you have? The Wild here says the doors have like wild The doors are open. So now as you're leading up to paradise, the doors already open so they can see paradise before they enter it. And as you're approaching you they're seeing it it's like you know when you are going to some destination and you will see your destination arriving, right. And that sensation of excitement is so powerful, it's like maybe even more enjoyable than getting to the destination. So the experience that beautiful sensation, or we're about to get there we're about to get there. And then the amazing thing is that what happens when you get there is actually not mentioned the response to either
Jehovah when they get there is not mentioned as if to imply to Allah you don't even know how amazing it will be when you get there. No words can even capture that we asked a lot to allow us to be in Paradise and save us from the firehouse I mean, of course these people will say a beautiful blah, they will say Alhamdulillah all praises to Allah, all praises to God who has fulfilled his promise to us and made us inheritors of this land, letting us settle in the garden wherever we want. And how excellent is the reward of those who labor near my original I mean, I mean, the ones who did work there, their knowledge, their understanding, led them to do good deeds, and that is true devotion to
Allah subhanho wa Taala the next sort of offer of offer is one of the seven high means one of the seven homies what do I mean by seven hams? I mean, they're called the Hawa meme in Arabic. What they are is their seven surahs all back to back to back that begin with the letters have mean if you read the Quran, the 24th and the 25th Jews, you will notice them if you are someone who memorizes Quran and leaves tarawih that is where you mess up.
Because there also has begin the same way.
And those jokes aside. There are McKinsey duras no McKinsey was revealed to the possum and he was still in Mecca. And they are a lot pantalla in a lot Allah inviting the people of America to Islam, but also showing how that word to Allah is done. Why the Allah to Allah is done is different than sort of Bukhara Surah Baqarah You know, one of the themes there was, you know, inviting people to Allah and whatnot. But there it was done in Medina from a position of strength from a position of, you know, you are the authority like you have governance, right whereas here
You don't have authority and you don't have governance, you are actually a citizen. In fact, you are a minority. So it actually in a way has a lot of interesting parallels to our situation that we are today to speaks about how our two allies, all of these have the same overlying overarching theme, but subtle differences between each of them. How Tao is done, why is it done? It speaks about the greatness of the Quran, one of the important things we have to understand giving Dawa is we have to be make the Quran front and center to our call, right? It has to be our arguments have to you know, come from it. Our morality stems from it, you know, the Quran has to be at the center of it. And
musala salaam has mentioned in all of them, and there is a beautiful parallel there's a beautiful
You know, thing to ponder here one, of course, is that the idea of the torch is being passed from musala Islam to the Prophet Solomon is oma, that idea is there but also musala salaam faced a tyrant like for our own and the Prophet son had to face You know, people, a collection of tyrants, the people of courage and musasa had to face Bani Israel in the Israelites who not all of them were fully devoted to Allah, many of them second guessed Moses a lot. The Prophet Salam had to deal with the hypocrites in Medina who were always second guessing the prophets of Salaam. So it's a beautiful parallel between the two
prophets and he's mentioned quite a bit here because there's a lot to learn from that our to Allah from masala salon, it speaks about the seven Sutras, a have a theme of unity being united as a community. And that's important when especially when we're a few and we're limited, a minority it's even more important and important in old times, but especially as a minority, being gentle and ignoring people's insults. This is critical right we are taught this this is our prophetic
you know manners, being gentle and ignoring people's insults not respond responding to evil with evil infallibility here. Here are some sayur responding to evil with what is good, this is the prophetic Wait, let's look at what sort of offer has the introduction to this is harming Hmm, this is how this let's begin. Then next right after talks about the Quran and De Luca de la Hilah as easily This is the book revealed by Allah the Almighty the all knowing who is Allah subhana wa Taala what is what is the introduction that allow us to give us about him in this surah introduce people to Allah by telling him he is law if it is them, the Forgiver of sin Gabi the dough, the acceptor
repentance, but also Shadi, the lightbulb Severe in punishment, the bowl, infinite in his bounty, infinite in his in his ability to give now either a loved one, there is no deity but him in a hilmar seal. All shall return to Him. This is how we know of Allah tala when we say Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, er Rahmani Raheem is like laughing at them. COVID dope.
Maliki yo Medina is saddled up the one who's infinite in Severe in punishment. Both of these go hand in hand, but the intro to alarm needs to be with law if it is them the Forgiver of sin acceptor of repentance, to give us hope, that we're not beyond hope to give us the hope that Allah's mercy is infinite and definitely is enough for us to give us hope that our mistakes as many as they may have been as bad as they may have been, are never too much for us to for them to define us. We will be defined by those who are going to turn our lives around through repentance. So that's a beautiful introduction to a lot and that tells you about how that work should be done. It shouldn't be like a
scare tactic of just threat threat threat it has to include love mercy invitation, talking about Allah beautiful mercy but also not so that becomes you know, in unbalanced talking about that Allah is going to hold us accountable shed either the club
that was hard last month I will mention this very clearly my jazzy loopy it lucky in the Latina cafaro for LA Rocha the color color Lu boom choose refillable add those who deny
the signs of a look.
Only those who deny the truth dispute God's signs so don't let their activity in the land the sea view Oh my god, there is an element of dispute when you present you will have to face dispute and argumentation and you have to be able to respond to those
But respond in a good way.
Tao is always not about results, give them a compliment. Oh, no, no Hello Islam had very little results unfortunately, and that later people before
this is how it is this is the reality of it. But also the reality is look at what they Hammad, kulu mata Mira Sunni him. They all plot it against the messenger, their messenger, and they just do bill Belton they use false arguments, arguments that would mislead arguments that were flogged. Why would they use arguments that are flawed, the the Hebrew will be he'll have fallacious arguments so that they may defeat the truth.
This is what's done today. If you watch YouTube videos, people talking about Islam and the Prophet Salaam and whatnot, these are the you'd hate to be in hock. These are fallacious arguments to defeat the truth.
This is unfortunately, the reality now is to respond to that as well, but respond in a good way to support the truth in the way it's supposed to be supported, but hurt the home so I sees them and how terrible was my punishment, also, that you know, no, holliston couldn't win all those battles. Alas, pantalla was the one who took care of those. And that's the thing for us, as well. We cannot, you know, convince people or change people's minds, our job is to convey and then the choices that people make are their choices. And we leave that to Allah to hold them accountable for their choices. He is the one who will hold them accountable. The one who is giving that our
Allah tells us the angels are the ones who pray for these people, the believers, but specifically the ones who are calling to Allah, right? The angels who bear the throne, those who are around it, glorify their Lord with his praise. They believe in Him, they ask for forgiveness for those who believe and hear those who believe is in context of those who are inviting in the way of Allah robina was there at akula in Ramadan, while my our Lord, You have embraced you embrace all things and mercy and knowledge to forgive those who turn to you and follow your path and save them from the punishment of hell. Beautiful girl and the angels make dua for the believers, in many, many
instances. And this is one example of how amazing the angels make dua for the believers. musala salam has mentioned and he said to fit our own and Harmon and our own and notice in the courtroom was not from, for he was not an Egyptian, he was an Israelite, but he's included with the Egyptians here for our own and our man because he acted as an agent of them. Okay, Allah sent Moosa with his clear signs to these three. So what was their response? Sir, they don't get the job. Just name calling bad PR,
slogans to distract people from what the message is shooting the messenger, so that the message becomes compromised. We see this with the problem today people say oh, violent, oh, this old terrorist. You know, it shocks you that how a person can arrive at that conclusion, if they only actually read the live with the mouse alone, and understood what he did in when he did it, how far far far from the truth those kind of ridiculous claims are. But this is how people operate the the halo between the fallacious arguments the name calling to defeat the truth. That is how it is. And that's an example of that from thrown and his cronies. musallam. Of course, when he brings the truth
to them around becomes even more violent. Right, and name calling isn't working violence, what is the violence, slay the sons of those who believe with him and spare only their daughters? A very, very difficult, you know, situation that we've discussed. The story was up quite a bit here. But here again, notice how it's framed in the context of how he is inviting to Allah subhanaw taala but the amazing thing about inviting people to Allah is you will find unexpected sources of help like we saw in Surah. Yaseen, remember the story as seen, the theme of it was optimism, while calling people to Allah and optimism in life in general, how there are unexpected sources of help, like the person
who came to support the three prophets, the three anonymous prophets, and here we have this men, original movie gnome and Alif around a believer, a man from among the people of the Pharaoh, from his own family, perhaps, who concealed his faith he believed in Masada Salaam, and now he is going to be defending musallam because that means that I'm going to kill Musa Okay, I'm going to execute him. This man springs to the defense of Musa he says a tough to do Narayan and Yakuza robiola would you slay a man because he says, My Lord is God and he has brought you clear signs from his mouth
And if he is lying, the sin of his lying will be on his head. But if he's truthful, a part of which he warns you will surely befall you is using logic. He's like, what reason? Do you have to kill him? Okay, because he's saying I worship a lot alone, okay? That's no reason number two, he's bringing you evidence that he's a prophet, if he's truthful, what's going what he's saying will happen, at least a part of it? And if he's not truthful, then it's his own burden to bear that his own. It's false Anyway, you don't have to worry about it. He's trying to explain. He's defending musallam with logic and also from being assassinated.
He reminds us people he says, look, you are dominant today. Look, come on. We'll call yo ma ba hereinafter Today your dominant but you don't know if you're going to be dominant tomorrow for me and so number Silla in Johanna How can we stand up to a laws punishment? The fit our own didn't like this. He says I might win. He could be Lama Hara. The only thing that is to consider is my opinion. And my opinion is Rama de Camilla Sabina. Rashad, I only got you to the right path. Who is this guy? Ignore him. Hey, now this person this amazing believer from the family of fit our own you know he's going to continue to now maybe he's a shift his gears and turn to the people and be like, Hey
people. Yes, Jaco me my people. I fear that we're gonna suffer like the people of Noah and od and the mood and those after them. All people, I fear that we're going to get in a situation where we crying out to each other yonathan ad is doing his best to give them power. He said, Remember history? We'll have a joke abuse of how did the Israelites end up here? Joseph came right Joseph came to your land. You accepted him. But Mr. System Fisher came in my job job can be but you never cease to doubt the message he brought you even though you accepted him and gave him this post that he had.
You never really you know, merited his Dharma or never lend an ear to his Dharma hodeida hallak when he passed away, you said that said no more messengers from these Israelites are coming. And that's a flawed thing. Moosa is a direct descendant of Yusuf alayhi salam. And as you can see, the message is the same as well. So look how amazing this person is giving Dawa he's using historical precedent again, to call his people to to Islam and and to deter ferons aggressions for our own is undeterred. He's like, Oh Ha man, build for me in lofty building. So I may gain access to the, to the heavens and I mean, look at the garden Moosa. I want to see the garden moves on build me a tall,
sort of lofty buildings, I can climb in the Look who is this God or Moosa?
And I think he's a liar. Now, either the pharaoh seeing this because maybe he's lost his mind. Are you saying this? Because he wants to make a mockery out of the message that musallam had brought, and probably the latter is the closer to the truth, because this is the tactics of those who want to deny the truth is to use these slogans and Miss directions, fallacious arguments to defeat the truth. So here, the man is making a serious point before right. Look, what about Joseph, what about use of Alexa? His response to that is, hey, let me just, you know, let's look up at the sky and see if you can find musos God, right, complete distraction. People are laughing hahaha. And the message
has gone fallen on deaf ears. So panela but this believer is also undeterred. And he's like no people.
I I will guide you follow me? I'll guide you is kind of becoming more bold. Now. He's like, look like he's not hiding his Eman anymore. Right now. He's more like, openly embracing the idea that he's a Muslim. Oh my people. This is the life that's temporary, and the next life is permanent. Let's work for the next life.
Whoever does evil will be repaid with evil, but whoever does good, my woman Amina Solomon de cadena de La Hoya movement, whether a male or female because in spirituality, there's equality.
Good from a man or a woman, same thing, what Mac makes it more good is how sincere they were. And how tough that was for that. evil man or woman same thing. What makes it worse is how, you know how treacherous that sin is. But it's not dependent or it's not tied to a gender. But I mean, that's it. I mean, Zachary now owns our own movement. As long as the person is a believer, it doesn't matter whether they are male or female, they will enter the garden and they will be provided without measured years of unifi happy lady herself. The man gives Dawa. He gives Dawa. But the pharaoh you know
The Pharaoh was not gonna listen. And then
he says for the death guru nama hula comb, you will remember this, you will remember what I told you, you don't forget about this, this is going to come back to haunt you. Now for what God hola Jose he it mama Kuru God delivered him from the Eagles was the uploader, they probably wanted to kill him. And Allah, you know, delivered him. And he was, of course, a person of Paradise, whereas the Pharaoh, how can be any further I would assume they are encompassed by a dreadful Scourge, a dreadful punishment, the fire you're on earlier, we'll do one more Shia, which they will be brought before morning and evening. And this is a evidence that this is a referring to the life of the grave
life of the bursa, that their souls are being tortured. Presently, we'll do one more here. And then we're yoma tomasa, on the day of judgment, at the Siu lF owner shall then either enter them into the worst punishment met out to them the harshest punishment of all people. So this punishment currently is for the life of the grave, the life of the Buddha's of their souls are being tortured. And then the harsher punishment is on the Day of Judgment, and they're entered into the fire of hell. And this is not going to be a pleasant place, the mighty of them, the weak will complain, you guys are the powerful we followed you can you do something to save us, and the ones who were powerful would
say we can't do anything, we're all in this together in a lot of hakama, vain and ibid. So this is
the idea repeats or this idea has emphasized again and again, don't hold or don't blame others for your misguidance don't blame others for the consequences of your actions, your choices, your choices, your actions, you will live with your consequences, no one is going to come and you know, make it better or worse for you.
Some the our through a lot of signs that Allah mentioned here, beautiful Legionella common out of Carrara it is a love was made the earth a resting place for you with Santa Amina, and heavens a canopy for you are so welcome has shaped you for Santa swara come and formed you in the best way was documented for you back and provided you with good things. So para la, he has made the whole system for us to live and thriving. He's made us individually as beautiful and provided us with good he's taking care of our inner needs sinker for our needs. Valley Kamala that is your Lord, but for the vertical load of Buddha I mean, he is the one who is
the one who is living you will never die not in La Ilaha The one who is only the only one worthy of worship. So make dua to him for the rule who mostly seen Allah how Deen pray to him only to him being devoted to him only and nobody else hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen this is some dour to allas signs is number 67. It talks about He is the one who created you from dust, then then from a drop of fluid. And then from a tiny clinging form. He then he brought you forth as infants from where your critical flaw is when the baby is born so helpless, and then he allows you to reach maturity. And then he allows some of you to become old.
And some die before they become old. But others reach old age or you who are gentle masama and then all of us reach our end life while unlocking the afternoon and so that you may reflect the cycle of life. We started from nothing literally, a drop of sperm is how we were conceived, brought helpless in this world gained strength and power. And now we are adults and strong but then returning back to essentially how we when we were when we were kids helpless in a state in the age of in old age being completely helpless like children are or largely helpless. And then when we die, we're like we're nothing again dust and dirt and regard. So had a low level darkly noon, so that you may think this
is signs of a law think about what is the purpose of your life here the hour is done with patients that the author has been told is possible in the law in Nevada law he Huck Be patient or prophet for God's promises true results. Whether you see the results or not should not be a concern. Your concern should be patience, fixing the process, leaving the results in the hands of Allah, whether we show you the part of what we have promised them in this life or cause you to die for us. It is to us that they will be recalled meaning you may see the results you may not see the result. But what you need to do is be patient and persistent in your actions and leave the rest to Allah leave the
Last part Allah. Allahu Allah concludes this by talking about the people who are rejecting Allah subhanho wa Taala and how it is the rejection of the prophets that our how there and will be that have they not traveled the land to see the fate of those who went before them. They were more numerous and mightier and left greater traces of their power on the earth. Yet all that they accomplished was of no avail to them. And then when our messengers came to the phenomena Johto musulman love
bill by Enoch and our messengers came to them with clear signs, they are rebelled in whatever knowledge they had, they were like, Ah, what we know is better. This is all nonsense. And so what they marked, engulf them, that the punishment that they were mocking, engulf them. Now, when they saw the punishment, Paulo Armin Nabila like, well, now we believe in God. We believe in love, please, please stop this punishment. But Governor vimalkumar became mushrikeen reject the partners we used to associate with him. But at that point, it's too late, Darwin, Toba at that point, when you have seen the punishment, when the angel of death has appeared. When life is over, then it is
too late when I'm Yaqui. And Pharaoh whom he man whom, Lamar, oh, Santa's leaving after seeing our punishment did not benefit them. It's no longer a man anymore. It's no longer faith. So not Allah, He let the other qualify but he This is the law of Allah to deal with his creatures, and thus the disbelievers were the losers were hasura fanatical capital, inshallah we'll end with this sort of a cigarette, which is 441 we will start tomorrow along with the other six homies so sort of faster than others. Five, six and together we'll start tomorrow begin the night Allah and we'll cover them, Zack McCarran, I'll see you Chawla tomorrow, same time, same place does that follow felons panic
