Oh the villa Hema shaytani rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah early he was happy when Allah officially said he was suddenly angry. Doctors Amelie sonica holy, but not enough Antonio Hassan filati Hassan, Okinawa now, Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome to ages a day. Today we are covering the 25th jewels of the Quran, we are nearing the end. So pan Allah, and this is a juice that comprises entirely of the sutras of the higher meems. If you remember last, yesterday, I had introduced the sewer as the hot the hot means to you all. And today what we have is we have the remaining little bit of sort of foresee that sort
of 41 sort of 42 a shoe assura excuse me, sort of 43 zakharov, Sarah 44, a Diwan surah, 45 and jatiya. These are the students that we have all of them are the hammams, these are five out of the seven Hamming Sutras, they begin with Hamming. And they praise the Quran, the greatest of the Quran, they're all revealed in Makkah, they speak about Muslims as a minority, inviting to the majority, with the minority being weak and underprivileged and, you know, under man, so to say, and then the majority being on pond misguidance. So it's a very interesting dynamic, I think there's a lot of parallels for us, because we are tasked with inviting people to stand, even if we are a minority and
even if the Muslims, you know, largely don't demonstrate the the truthfulness of the message don't live up to the truthfulness of the message, but we are to share it. And even in these circumstances, the power of the truth will make it shine. That is what we saw in the surah number 41. So to foresee that the man who believed from the family of the Pharaoh and and others so today we will see let's pick it up from the beginning of the juice last month says in a euro Elon Musk
he alone has a knowledge of the our Ramada for German thammarat him in a coma mia wama definitely looming onza whatever we love your enemy, no fruit emerges from its husk notice any female become pregnant or give birth without his knowledge while munadi him initial aka he And on that day on the day excuse me, he will call out to them. Where are my associates? They will reply we declare to you that none of us can bear witness to them either Naga mommy namond Shahid now we have you know, we can't we don't know where they are mommy namun Shahid well, Allah and Homer can we have their own amicable the deities they invoked before will have vanished and they will know that there is no
escape mala Hoon mimma heels now they know that that those deities those religions that they followed or false for a fact and now there is no escape letters inside them and Dora l Hayes, man never hires of asking for good things of life, but it must serve a surefire, awesome connote but if evil fortune befalls him, he abandons all hope giving himself up to despair. This is something that's so interesting you notice that in for example, the way people would invest if stock market tanks a little bit, people are in a state of despair, they're walking around, you know, sullen and sad. And this is something that is part of life. This is part of life like us motto says, you know,
he tests us with good and evil and he wants to see a reaction. Well, I know Dr. hora Mata Minh nombre de la masa to the hula, hula heatherly. But the fickle nature of humans is on full display here, when you give him a taste of some of our mercy after some adversity has touched him, he is sure to say as early This is my do this expression comes in the colon quite a bit when we give him a taste of our mercy. But then the what the person is saying that varies in different different Sutras, right sometimes he would say in Mr. Moody to who Allah L is because of my knowledge. Sometimes Allah says
he forgets us and moves on. And and, you know, car mechanic room in Kabul was you know, sometimes you forget all the doors he was making in difficult times and starts to
worship other idols. Sometimes he, you know, the habits to Ernie and Surah 11 For example, He says, okay, all my troubles are gone. And now I'm so super happy super elated, okay, so this expression, this part is the same when Allah gives them a test taste of mercy after adversity, relief after adversity, that part's the same, but with a reaction, while similar is different in each instance to highlight the different shades of fickleness that that make up our as human beings, okay, in this case, what does he say? He showed the say, Hi, Dolly. This is my do. I was do this anyway. Right. This was, you know, I deserved this good things. And you know, I didn't deserve any of that evil,
okay. And he becomes so diluted, in this thinking, so narcissistic, that he forgets that there was as if like, there is even a creator, and there's any going to be any accountability. He says, I do not think that the hours went to come out of the new startup. All right, look how it goes from. This is my right to the conclusion that there is no accountability because I am you know, I have my rights, who is to hold me and asked me about what I'm doing right.
Well, I reject without obey. Even if I was to return to my Lord in Aliyah in the hula hula, He will surely reward me extremely well, right. This is a very, very person who's very full of themselves very, very full of themselves. And that attitude reflects or is on full display, not on like a day to day basis, perhaps, but it's heightened when a loss patola puts the person through some adverse times and then takes them out of adverse times. The reaction at that point really, really tells us about ourselves will be an allogeneic afrobarometer one of the phenomena that we normally use, but truly we shall tell those who deny the truth all they did and shall make them suffer a hard
Well either and I'm not either in certainly aren't although on average journey be generally when we grant a grant a blessing to men to human, he turns away and draws a draws a sight he's, you know, busy and happy with his life, whether it must have a shadow vadodara in it, but when evil will touches him, he is full of endless prayers, right? adversity happens, okay? McDarrah, let's read Quran as everybody can come together with Quran give sadaqa here to do South Korea, let's do something, you know,
to try to get some divine intervention into our lives to rescue us from our difficulty. Alright, this is how people think of the religion for those who are in audio the bad news and other good times it's, you know, it's uh, you know, it's it's a it's an afterthought.
Again, all right to say to them Have you considered in this Quran really is from God and you reject it, who then can be more astray than someone who has drifted far away from the truth sunnery Maya TNF alpha, Allah says we will show them our signs in the universe and within themselves. Once we enforce em you will see Allah signs around you in his magnificence. You will see Allah size within yourselves these descriptions of Iran gives you will notice it about yourself and people around you. You will notice Allah has great signs in you as in like how we function as human beings, how our bodies are, how incredible they are. All those are signs all over hataoka. You know, the whole point
of them is until it becomes clear to them that this is the truth. This religion is the truth. I want to make fibula bigger and the hawala condition Shaheed is not enough that your Lord is the witness of all things, but they are yet they are still in doubt that they will ever meet their Lord, but he is fully in charge he encompasses everything for the other in the movie condition him Mohit surah Shura is number one hi meme number two I ain't seen cough This is another hammy but this has a did added incf Klein seen cough in it. This is different than the other humming solos okay the themes of this was remained the same look at the mentions the Quran with Erica up like what either levina
mucolytic Allahu la xyzal Hakeem God the powerful the wise, has thirst send revelation to you as he did to those before you will prophets a stellar okay.
And it mentioned also
you know the glory of the Quran and number seven, okay Malika Anza na kinetico hyena Elijah for an hour via the tune 00 man hora woman how Allah wa tundra, tundra Yama Gemma Isla or Eva.
He failure confirmation that you have to confess sorry. It says
thus we have revealed to you this Arabic foreign so that you may warn the mother of cities. Malcorra is the nickname of maka, the mother of cities. in Arabia, especially back in the Arabian Peninsula, this was the most important city. And of course, now spiritually Makkah is the most important city for us. You know, it is the place where we turn, it's the direction of our prayer. That's the place where Ibrahim Islam built the house of Allah, that's the place where we do Hajj and all that just so that is all Malcorra and those around it. Okay, the first initial audience is McCann's and the people around McDowell. That's why you notice the Quran addresses their specific, you know,
statements and their specific ideologies in quite a bit of detail because they're the first audience but anybody who thinks that that way, anybody who acts that way, is also by extension addressed, and they are addressed the tune what Tony Romo jameela, Ravi warned them of the Day of Gathering, which is short to come. The Day of Gathering is that the judgment, a name of the Day of Judgment is the Day of Gathering because everyone is going to be gathered on it vary according to agenda to for the home for sale. There's only two outcomes, one group, some, some group will be in the garden, and some will be in the fire. This is there's no third outcome here is the end of it all. It's one or
the other. No one is in the fire wrongfully. No one is in the fire ignorantly are in a state of obliviousness. No, they are in there rightfully, as they deserve it. As we have mentioned many, many times, and anybody who is in the garden is not there because of their excellence of per se. They're in there because of the mercy of Allah, the mercy of God. And of course they had you know, the basic tenants of worshipping Allah oneness of Allah was the basic tenant that they had. The basic prerequisite for entrance in paradise dead.
loss as well sha Allah, Allah Allahu Amata wahida Why did Allah set it up so that some people are going to Agenda some people are going to Hellfire, Allah says had He willed, He could have made you all one community, meaning all of you would have been in paradise
that he could have done that. But we're lucky, you know, my issue of Iraq Mati, but he admits to into his mercy whom He wills but that's not how he set it up on Pandora. He set it up. You don't question him? How? Why is there a river here? Why is there a mountain there? Those things we don't know. That's how you set it up. Right? Why is the earth in you know, this much away from the sun? That's how you set it up? How can we have one moon and Jupiter has I don't know how many moons that's how you set it up? Right? The idea is, just like all that is his setup. This is also his setup, and he does this to you. Even if you're rocking it, he did admit who he was to His mercy.
Right. He This is Allah's way of also honoring people, those who want to come to Him, He will honor them by admitting them to His mercy. But those who are wrongdoers, because we're given choice, we're given choice you choose wrong, they will have neither protector nor helper. I met the hurdle men don't men don't have the taking for themselves protectors other than him.
It is God who is a real protector. He is the one who resurrects the dead and he has power over all things for law. Why do I leave? Well who are your hell Mota wha hoo Allah Alisha, you are the
master left Vichy infoq Moo illallah wa Salatu v himanshi in for hook mu Illa Allah, whatever you may differ all believers, the verdict there upon risks, there unrest with God, such is God, My Lord, in him, I have placed my trust, and to Him I will always turn life is not going to be all agreements and everything is good people of different faiths will not agree, people within a faith will not agree. This is the way it is. And again, that's the choice of Allah Subhana Allah He has allowed us the agency and allowed us the choice to hold our minds all the opinions in our minds. And that naturally means that there's going to be differences, okay.
But the end verdict at the end of the day is going to be rests with Allah subhanaw taala. And then there obviously is a difference between truth as false through truth and falsehood. And then within truth, there is a variance of how we see, you know, the secondary matters of faith, right? That's the secondary ritualistic matters not there's no difference on the core primary theology.
Okay, but it is on the secondary and tertiary matters of how to live that theology. Okay? And that is something that is part and parcel of the diversity of the human experience. And that is what Allah is referring to here. Among all differences. The Deen, however, has been always been one. The religion has always been one. I number 13 shout out our local Mina Dyneema wasabi, he knew how the core the fundamentals of it, right the theology of it has always been one theology. That is been their religion ordained.
God is in the audience with the same religion, which he enjoyed on Noah of East Africa. Dr. Kim broke free from where she was held.
It came to the place where the fun is happening.
Okay, Jabba Allah, Camila Dyneema. Wasabi, he knew how to do hyena like God has ordained for you that the same religion which he enjoyed on Noah, and which he revealed to you which enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus, Mount Sinai be here but all Hema musawah Isa these are the five main prophets that Allah has mentioned here. And the religion at its core has always been the same. And again with Dean, which is worship Allah Of course, but then after when you're worshiping, you should remain steadfast on the religion of Allah Tata for Ravi and do not become divided.
That was always the goal.
What you call upon the polytheist to do is hard for them. Hmm. God chooses for himself whoever he pleases and guides towards himself those who turn to Him camp.
That's what the last month Allah has always revealed. But as I said, people are people Mamata Rocco in Lombardy Maja
mobile the Unbeknown they became divided only after knowledge had reached them out of mutual jealousy This is it the bad kind of differences This is the kind of differences because this is this is this unity not just differences This is division, not diversity of opinion. Okay? And this is because the motives are wrong mutual jealousy despite knowing that they're wrong they're still insist insisting on it, because they don't want to see the point to the other party that they dislike.
And that is the source of division, and disunity, and that's how people were how well I will Kadima to Sapna Rebecca era jd masama lebeau. The year by now home had not been for a decree passed by your Lord already passed by the Lord to deprive them until a specified period, the matter would surely surely have been decided between the meaning Allah will let this go until the end of time. And that is when he decides, okay, and he had made that decision before. He's made that decision before. Now what is the end result of people of religious people when their religious people are you know bickering and fighting and being divisive and being petty, what is the
sad outcome of this the sad outcome of this is well, in the Medina auditor Gita remembered him Luffy shack came Minho, marieb those who inherited the book after them are indeed in grave doubt, amounting to suspicion about it, the kids of the youth, the kids who grew up with the religion because they were born in it, or people who entered it and they just they became part of the religion became part and parcel of their lives. They are the ones who started to have grave doubts about it, because of the pettiness and this unity of the religious leadership.
That is, you know, how the Quran is almost telling us about ourselves here right? This is the reality
so what do we do fairly the leaker father rule so for that reason for the Vatican literally means for that reason
so that's why further rule call people to the feet you invite people you keep inviting people to the right thing was stuff came come out on with the and you hold fast onto yourself as you're commanded while at our home and do not be led by their desires. Okay, this is what we can control we cannot control what others are doing. We cannot control what how others are misrepresenting. We cannot control divisions in this unity. That's too much for us too much to ask for from us. I will just one peep one. I'm one person one person. Okay. So what do we focus on ourselves? We focus on
further ado inviting those who we can invite sharing the message with those who can share our families or friends, those around us that we love Cape holdfast with yours or what's the theme from the word is diploma from the word the stand up is the karma is to be firm like you know, someone was firmly standing not falling down in what your firm in your practice of faith, you're committed to it, okay?
And you're not following desires one at a time where what you're doing what you're doing are a sincere desire to please Allah not for any other reason. And then in that case, a person makes a mistake, it's totally fine. As a last month, I will overlook this mistakes because their intention was correct. They wanted to please Allah spawn Tada. So that and if even if a person is does something right, while trying to, you know, do it for the wrong reasons. It doesn't really add up, it doesn't square. So this is what we can control. And that's what the Quran tells us. The revelation always said, Deen is one stay together, you know, be a single community. The people
unfortunately did not follow that. But you as an individual can do something about it. And you focus on yourself. Well, cool, man to be Manzil Bhima Angela woman Kitab say I believe in the book which God has sent down, and I am commanded to do to do justice. Between you will move to an Adela Bina coming over to Dr. de la Vina co our Lord God is our Lord and your Lord, we are responsible for what we do and you are responsible for what you do. There is no contention between us and you. Allahu yajima obey in an hour, he will mercy You, God will gather us together and for him shall be the return. Okay. The surah speaks about the uniqueness of Allah subhanaw taala I skip this is where you
want to go back to ILM and follow through some of what he
speaks about Allah is unique he is the creature heavens in the earth. No one is like that. janela Coleman unphysical massager he's made spouses for you from among yourselves as well as pairs of livestocks by which means of which he multiplies his creations. Also, that's only for the creation not for Allah Allah is not a period he's one we are you know we are in need for someone else to live happily animals are in need of
other animals so they can procreate and spread the other Oh comfy we spread all over the earth. Right That's how we are as occasional last ones. Allah is you know, infinite and perfect. And he is always has been and always will be. It's not like we're you know, growing and then we die and then we grow again and there's boom and bust. Nothing, none of that is Allah LASIK. Admittedly he Shane, nothing can be compared with him. Right? He is, you know, a semi Albacete he's all hearing and all seeing he has the most perfect majestic attributes, but he is those are his and his alone. we as human beings is a clear separation between the Lord and the human. Okay, that's number 11.
I number 25 also speaks about how Allah subhanaw taala is there is nothing like a look.
He accepts repentance who will have the Jacobo Tabata antibody he he expects accepts repentance from his servants we are for honesty, he pardons their sins. Why are the Mamata followed? He knows what you do. He's not doing this out of ignorance. He's doing this out of kindness and mercy and love. Okay.
He responds to those who believe and who do good deeds. West ajibola Dena Aminu Amina solely hard. Why is he the woman fourthly and he gives them more of his bounty, more goodness, more of his grace he gives them. This is what we do we focus on ourselves. We focus on believing in Allah, we focus on our attitude, acquiring the attitude of gratitude, acquiring or focusing on doing as many good deeds as we can. And then we notice the blessings of Allah, we will notice that he increases us in bounty in favor doesn't mean the test won't come, the test of life will come always, but he his grace is going to be more His bounty, His goodness, his blessings are going to be abundant. And that is what
Allah spot does, you know, uniquely bestows upon the believers welcome if you do not know him either when shadid you know the disbelievers that an agonizing torment awaits them while I was at the local discovery I by the healer, but often, if God wants to grant his abundant provision to all creatures, they will act instantly on the earth. If everybody was given everything they asked for. It will be chaos, while Aki Nunez he will be present in my shop. But he sends down in new measure whatever he wills, it's his choice. He chooses the risk
and this is an interesting
This surah has this interesting topic in it that allows choice is supreme user a we have our choice, but our choice is within the framework that Allah has allowed us to choose from. Okay? His choice is supreme. And we sometimes oftentimes I can't do anything about it. This idea of, you know, people being wealthy and people being rich, right, this is Allah's choice. Sure, there's economic factors and whatnot. But at the end of the day, people are sometimes born in situations where, you know, that's just how they're going to eat. And other times people are born into a situation where they're so rich, that they can just cruise through the rest of their life and still be extremely rich. It's
the choice of Allah subhanaw taala. All people are given accordingly. That does not mean though, that we are to be despondent and return into it. We become people who are, you know, grieving and whatnot and complaining No, our goal again, our focus is we focus on the good that we can do with the things that we have a policy there's nothing like him, right.
I'm sorry, excuse me. One other important thing is, these tests of lighter relief is close by when there's a test relief is not far away, who will lead the unit zero vitamin by the Macondo. It is he who says rain after they have disappeared and spreads His mercy far and wide right? People have disappeared Allah brings comes to the rescue. This is the thing don't give up hope. Even if times are tough, I mean it Hello somewhat evil woman but stuffy female, I mean dhaba among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and all the living creatures he has dispersed throughout the earth and throughout the sky as well. And He is Allah Gemini him either your show called deal he
has the power to bring all things together understand brothers and sisters when masaba mean mostly but then whatever misfortune befalls you for we Marcus about AD Kumar for and Kathy, it's part it's, it's a consequence of your own doing in the sense that there is a trial a person will suffer because Allah subhanaw taala is wants to purify them. And then there is also a person who has made mistakes, has heard people has done evil has acted immorally and if Allah was to take them to task it will be a severe reckoning. How does Allah Subhana Allah purify them? How does the love break their arrogance? puts them through some adverse times? Not entirely. We are one Kathy and much of it Allah
overlooks, but a little bit he puts because of what we've done through us through adverse times to bring out our resolve to bring us to humility to give us the wake up call to return back to him before it's too late. Okay, this is a very important part. The Quran tells us about it number 32 says no man iottie hinjewadi Phil Bahari, Cal Olam. Look at the example of the Shapiro's this a ship that sailing by sail by the way game. They're like mountains on the sea. And yet you're skinny Reha for y'all Valentina rocky the authority, if you will, he could bring the wind to assess standstill, and they would lie motionless on the surface of the seat, right? If Allah had willed he would stop,
he would introduce something or take away something that would bring us to a standstill and so panela How well do we understand this reality right now? When it comes to the pandemic, for example, right by Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, they literally were like, motionless, were like, log down, stay at Oh, game. This is the idea. If Allah wanted to demonstrate his power to you, he can do so enough either. alika is utterly clueless about a shoe. He doesn't do that for every immorality. He just does that a little bit to show us who he is his power and to remind us to wake up from our slumber in the phenolic era I utterly clueless about a show called truly there are signs in this for
people who are steadfast and grateful subohm patient and steadfast, right? If you are not fickle, right the opposite of fickle is your steadfast and grateful right the opposite of fickle is this if you are this you understand good and bad is from Allah you understand life is going to be good times and bad times both our tests from last month. If you understand that, then this kind of things would be that we see adversity.
It is a reminder, it is a reminder of Allah Subhana Allah it's not like some sort of vengeful pleasure you extract by seeing people suffer while the other fella No, but it's a reminder of our limitations and allows power it's a reminder of our of our finite ness and his infinite this will be honami aka
Or you may cause them to founder because of people's misdeeds, why are foreign cars here but again, he pardons much much much than what he wrote holds us accountable for in this world today. Okay. Then this surah has Shura is the name of the surah Shura, a very beautiful passage about believers, okay. And the job of the believer is, like I said, you know, to worship Allah themselves, be the best they can be and share for the Delica further rule for that reason, invite. Right?
irrespective of what's going on, right, but this is a team work and we do this together, we're not like, you know, like a not like a lone star warrior type thing. You know, he's a warrior by yourself. No, we work as a team, we work together, we try to help each other. How do we do that?
Who how, what does that mean? For my Ottoman shape for mother all highlighted dunya whatever you have been given is only temporary, a temporary provision of this life. It is a temporary enjoyment, but what is with God is better and more lasting for those who believe are in the love of God and that's what we aim for. above everything. Well, a lot of behemoth of a cologne is the people who put their trust in the Lord. They are the ones who what is Who are these amazing people? Who are these people who are believers who trust Allah and they are the ones who are going to have what's better and more lasting in the next life. Who are they tell us? Oh Allah, Allah Dena edge anyone acaba if
me well, ah, they refrain from heinous sins and gross in distances yesterday Muna Kaaba evil if
some other major sins schilke murder, adultery,
being extremely disrespectful, insulting and hurtful towards parents, but bucola Valley, then, you know, like this is like your blood and your DNA, you're denying that
the accusing of a chaste woman, accusing her of being promiscuous. These are some examples lying and being like a perpetual liar.
And others that are in that list, it's a short list of major sins, a short list of the Quran and Sunnah, you know, list here in there, and then we can compile them together. And what it does is
it tells us that this is what you focus on, right? There's a lot going on in life, your focus is avoid this stuff, that's avoid that gate, avoid that, number one, avoid gross indecency is our hash. And my God, are we surrounded by fo Rh today, right? Tick Tock is a big fan of itself. Like you go on, it went on and I was like, my goodness, what is this world? Right? What is this world that we're living there? The the in decencies are almost like, unimaginable. When it comes to what we see today, compared to maybe even a few decades ago, maybe even a few decades ago. That's it's how the descent into it is so ridiculous, and so stark, okay. But this is the reality, what we do is we
avoid the gross in distances, that alpha, alpha is something that is shameless. And this is generally a sexual matter. It's generally is sexual matter. A matter of, you know, you know, crossing the line, you know, sexually or indulging in entertainment, that is sex sexually stimulating, in a completely unlawful manner, to unlawful means and ends. That is what is referring to
avoid that. Refrain. None avoid, stay away from it. Stay away from the major sins, the big, big sin stay away from in decencies and then everything else is forgiven. All the small mistakes, all the ups and downs of life. Allah will forgive all of them. Okay? What either now all the room has to fit on those who forgive when they're angry. What an amazing thing. These are believers who they will get angry, it's human to get angry you cannot. I mean that which human can doesn't get angry. But this is a person who when they're angry, they're able to forgive. right this is what incredible heart what an elevated soul This is to not be vengeful when angry, they're able to forgive and let
bygones be bygones. Okay. They are the ones who respond to the Lord and attend to their prayer of Hamas Allah respond to the Lord is, you know, do what the you know what what Islam asked them to do, you know, to the best of their ability, that attitude is I will do it. The added
It is not like why do I have to do it? The attitude is I will do what Allah is asking me to do where they are I they pray a common Salah they establish it this way there's an importance to it. There is a soul and a meaning to it. There is a timeliness to it. No, I'm Ramu rabina, home their affairs, they conduct their affairs by mutual consultation. When they work together, it's not just I'm gonna listen to what I have to say. And I am the most important person. My voice matters. No, there's a consultation, a shoe Raveena homeless with the name of this widow comes from a shoe rock cap. And women models of now I mean, if your home is spent out of what We have provided for that pipe, you
see what a beautiful spectrum of goodies these people do. They help those who are need, they are able to work with others and get buy in from them. They are able they they have a personal spirituality, they established the prayer, right? That's like the anchor of their life. They have the attitude of whatever Allah asked me to do, I'll do it. They stay away from the major sins that indecency mistakes happen, right? But the major ones they don't go towards Sorry, I missed the Riba, you know, usury and interest, they stay away from all that and gambling they stay away from that all the major sins, they stay away from that they are able to control their anger when they're angry and
forgive woca amazing spectrum of what a well rounded individual This is. Okay, we ask a lot of makers of these people. These are people who are able to defend themselves, right? They're not like meek passiveness will just get rolled over by anybody. They're able to defend themselves when attacked. But then they are not tried crossing the boundaries when defending or when it's, you know, trying to get justice, which is that will say you didn't say you're done with
not going crossing over, not giving more harm than what have endured. But whoever forgives and makes amends will find his reward with God for what our offer was to what's better. What's being encouraged here is even if you have the power to extract revenge, if you have the ability to forgive, if you have the heart to forgive, that's better, and you will find your reward but God does he does not love the wrongdoers.
The person who defends himself after they have been wronged cannot be blamed. This is their right. This is the right you no one who seeks justice should be said How come you're seeking justice just forgive them. It's okay. No, they have the right to seek justice. But and by the way, the blame worthy one is the one who crosses lines and goes from seeking justice to becoming an oppressor themselves. While I'm in Namibia to the moon and NASA we have a wonderful simulated Hawk. However, if you have extracted justice, and now you're at the point of you have a choice of seeing the person being punished, or forgiving them and you and your heart are able to forgive them. Knowing Allah is
going to reward you with a loss Pato has something better in store for you while I'm on sabara, the one who's patient and forgiving in other legal I mean azmin or more, that is a person who's acting with the most incredible showing the most incredible strength of character, right it's their right to get justice is their right to seek it. It's not the right to cross the boundaries, but it's if they're able to seek it or while seeking it, they decide to let go because a loss partner has something better in store for them. That is great strength of character. In the article Amina has been removed. We asked her to make us people like this I mean your your job will messenger of Allah
is to convey the message I have 48 for in robu Manasa Naka, Allah him
Have you love
of the turn away after you have given them the message of Prophet we have not sent you as a keeper we have not send new to police them your responsibility is to convey the message.
And then Allah has responsibilities to hold people accountable. Now either in either either examine our document and for the hub fairly high we were interested in once a year to me matamata, IBM for in sanaka fool. And then again the sort of loops back to that idea of that fickle nature of humans, that lack of understanding of good and evil. And that often is what pushes people out the door out of Islam or not inside. It's not like some crazy like thing that that you know some crazy proof against Islam or something or whatnot.
It's often the tribulations of life that push people out. That's what the Quran is reminding us so much of this man is such that when we let him taste our mercy He exalts in it, but he if an evil befalls him, which is his own doing, he becomes utterly ungrateful.
Allah spotless says something very interesting here.
Concluding passage of the surah Allah gives as he pleases.
He gives as he pleases, people don't have a choice in these matters. What is that matter? God has control of the heavens and the earth. He creates whatever he wills, yakusoku Maya yahudi Masha Hinata yahudi Maya with the code. He grants females, like female like daughters, to whoever he wills and sons to whoever he wills it's his choice. And some he gives them both the Quran and Marina Thank you, them both sons and daughters.
We had your aluminum show akima. And he makes some Baron who don't have any children in who are Lehman Kadir.
He is the all knowing all powerful, right? There's four possibilities. You have only daughters, like me, or have only sons, or you have both sons and daughters, or you have no children. And
whichever one you fall under, that is actually purely purely Allah's choice. It's his choice. He actually says it is yeah, budimir sharp. He gives us the gift. He says grants Yeah, boo from the word hubba hubba. Yahoo. means to give a gift. Children are a gift from Allah tala.
It's a gift luggages. But it's purely is giving not anybody else. Now in the next is says, it is not granted to any human being, that God shall speak to him, other than by revelation, or from behind a veil or by sending him a messenger so that the messenger may revealed by his command, whatever, so whatever, excuse me, He will surely he is exalted and wise.
And thus we have revealed a spirit to you or promise them by our command kinetico hyena illegal gambling and we have sent to you a soul. What is this talking about is talking about the Quran, the Quran is called a soul. because it brings it's like the thing that brings us to life. It's the thing that gives us you know, it's the are the, it's our spiritual heart. It's what revise our spiritual heart. It's look at the side, you'd neither you knew neither the Scripture. Nah, Quinta de mal Kitab Allah He man. You did not know about religion or scripture, nor about faith. Okay. The intricate details of if you didn't know anything of that, oh, Prophet salam, wa kinja Allah Who knew Ron, but
we have made it a light. Yeah and DB HeMan the SRA DB HeMan, the shadowman hybrid dinner, guiding with it, whoever we will have our servants, but in naka de la serata. Mr. Kim, you are indeed guiding to the straight path. What is this talking about? This is talking about that. Allah spa chose the prophets Allah Allah. Allah His father chose the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, out of all the people of the world to be the last prophet. He chose Ibrahim of all the people in the world to be Ibrahim the Prophet, the father of prophets, he chose the ISA of all the people in the world, to be the, the one that Kereama to Allah, the Word of God, the one who was born without a
father, from a virgin mother, who was a miracle and a sign he chose of all the people musallam to be the one who he spoke to, and the one who would free bunnies that yield from the grip of their own. And he chose of all the people Bahamas also love to be the last prophet sent to humanity. It is 100% his choice, just like the kids, we don't choose our kids, when they're born. They don't choose them. We don't choose our parents when we're born. It's purely the choice of a look. This is also purely the choice of Allah subhanaw taala. And you have to, Allah wants us to understand this, that he chose the prophets Allah. And now, you the Prophet are guiding to the straight path. He is the one
who is guiding people to a straight path.
This is Surah assura something a very beautiful surah for us to think about Surah azucar of surah number 43 I believe Yes, would have suffered three. This is which Hamid now this is
123 This is the fourth time Yes.
Hamming while GitHub is moving high mean by the book that makes things clear in gr la hora de la la quinta kilometer in Arabic Cora
So you may understand this is something we mentioned before the Quran is mentioned very, very much in these Sutras, the ones that begin with Hamming game.
The Quran mentioned something interesting.
I find out that he won Kumu the cross of one should we withdraw the ammunition from you? Because you are a people who are far gone in transition, a transgression excuse me, like your your actions are Quraysh people for us you have the most pathetic actions the most pathetic attitude? Should we withdraw this from you? All people have Quraysh you look at how many prophets were sent before Almighty him or maybe you're in luck. anubius as soon whenever a Prophet came, they were mocked for Allah ushered them in home bottleshop so we destroyed those who were mightier than you.
And one more law my fellow Marine, and the example of these people was left and such was their example. Okay, so this is a last part Allah is saying,
Operation what will it take for you to stop doing what you're doing? gave? Allah Sparta reminds us of his immense blessings right? By the way, the people of Croatia and actually most of the world, if you ask them who has brought this Cosmos into existence, they will say for sure, hello, Kahuna Azizullah alim, it's God, whatever name they want to give it to Las pantalla it is they're referring to, you know, the inexhaustible power that brought the earth and everything into existence. Now, what happens afterwards is where they all kind of go here and there, right? But that is something the vast vast majority of the world agrees upon. And there's a very small minority of atheists who
don't even the agnostic and you will actually be surprised by how many atheists end up being agnostic because it's so irrational for them to believe that something came out of nothing, that they end up you know, doing mental gymnastics and end up being agnostic. So yes, there is something that started this thing, but now that thing has nothing to do with us and has no agency over us. Anyway,
Allah gives us this
reminder of his blessings he has made the earth a cradle for you and made their own paths for you so that you may find your way law local data dude right the earth is navigable, you can go around and navigated when Latina salamina sama EMA and we thought he sends down water from the sky and you measure it sound like every the whole years rain falls on one day, it happens you know in that very nice consistent measure for any shall not be bothered a meter and we revive that land with it and likewise you will be resurrected from the grave as well you will be brought back into life. Similarly while at the Holocaust as jack Kula, he is the one who created all living things in pairs
okay animals humans plants when you know pollination happens from like the male flower to the female flower This is something that every living being is in this way did Allah Allah communal full key was anonima Taka boon
and gave you ships to sail sail in NBS to right upon him the Duster who Allah to hurry that you may that you may sit firmly on their backs think about it that like a cow is so much bigger about she sorry a horse is so much bigger, but a man is able to tame that wild horse right? And now that wild horse becomes his writing beast, okay.
This is an example of Allah giving us the upper hand to to thrive on this world so that you must sit firmly on their backs. When you are in that situation. The mythos guru named Matera become you can remember the favor of your Lord once you're mounted. What the hulu's ohana laryssa harana hada amaco nanomol, codename Glory be to Him who has subjected these creatures to us, and you will never have been able to subject them if it was not Allah's.
It was not if it was not for Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, he has allowed us to subject them to our service. And this is a laws favor upon us. This is a very beautiful door, underline this and make it when you're writing your car or something good. But in that era have been Adam kalibo and to our Lord we shall return give a reminder of Allah immense blessings all around us all people, why don't you accept Him as your Lord? Allah Samantha highlights the pathetic attitude and behavior of Quraysh when one of them is given the news of the very thing which he ascribes to the All Merciful, vulgar Jew who must walk down the hook of him, his face darkens with
grief and he is filled with grief. What is this talking about? The Qureshi would say, Allah has daughters and that's his angels gift. They will say these things that have no reality, not nothing to do with any.
There's no reality to those things. Yes.
But they will say that as a matter of fact. Now, what's interesting is they, when they would have been told that, hey, you have a daughter now, congratulations, you just had a daughter born to you.
What would happen to this person, this Qureshi person, of Allah Jew who must work done, his face would turn dark, and he is filled with grief. And he is going to say things that are completely inappropriate that this is a
child, you know, should I kill them or should I keep them right? Well, john, melodica Latina, homi Bhabha, Rahmani inasa Ushahidi Hong Kong, they consider the maid the angels to be like the daughters of of God, this is you know, blasphemous what they do you see that happening a shiny new Kalka home, did you see that take place and that's why you're claiming this as factual that is something that is completely false, but it is these are just things that they will say that were false as if they're true. And this is, you know, the tragedy of their of them. And this is a tragedy also of our times when people just, you know, parrot things that are not true. As if they're true. Okay, we'll call
will shout rock Manuma. But now, they said, If All Merciful had so willed, We will not have worshiped them again, hey, if Allah wanted to guide us we would have would have been guided, if Allah chose good for us, we would have had good if Allah did this, this idea of its you know, I'm just, whatever Allah wills, I'm just here, right? conflating The, the ultimate power and, and dominance of Allah, with the agency that Allah has given us, they're conflating the two. And that's why they say, Oh, well, you know, it's not really our fault is it? And that, you know, attitude has been addressed throughout the Quran. Previously, the idea is, of course, you have the agency, and
you will be held accountable. You do what you ever you do, through whatever means Allah has given you you cannot cross the lines that Allah has set up, okay, as human beings, but you have the choice to choose between good and evil, and you cannot blame Allah for your choices of evil. Because he gave you that choice in yourself.
You know, and nobody else. He says, they will say things like, we have certainly found our fathers following a certain course and we are guided by their footsteps. say, Well, this is our culture. That's what our religion is. We don't really care about this or that. Also very, very inappropriate. They will say things they will call you Lola Newsela, Al Quran, Allah Raja name, middle Korea, tiny, all the there was a Why was this put on? Not sent down to one of the great men of the two cities? How come he was chosen? The provinces also?
Look at Allah's response. They're responsible law is a homey oxymoron matter of big is it they to apportion that with the mercy of your Lord? Are they choosing? Are they choosing who gets what they don't choose? Allah chooses? The kids you have Allah chooses, where you are going to be Allah chooses where you will die? Allah is it's the choice. These are not agency of the choice of good and evil that you have. These are almost choices. Okay? Don't question his choices. You are we question about yours. He is the one who chose the profits of sauce sauce on them. And
it's not, it's not the job of a human to ask that. Look at what Allah says It is we who distribute among them their livelihood in the life of this world. It is we who raised some of them above others in rank, so that they may take one another into service game Allah has he's highlighting the aspects of your life that you don't really choose. Allah has chosen them for you. That's the way the world operates. So how come you don't question that but you're questioning this? That's inconsistent, isn't it? What am I doing? I'm bigger Hiram. In my area, my own. the mercy of your Lord is better than the world that they amass. Okay? It says, material gains don't amount to anything in the sight
of Allah. He says, Well, so far, that's where the name of the pseudo comes from. zakharova a loss pantalla
When kulula ligula, Mamata ohata dunya all of these things are the provision of this life, golden silver material gains, you know, material pleasures, these are all temporary. Okay. And the lasting thing is well our hero to render up because within the life that is to come, that is the one that is a little more akin. Alright?
The Quran mentions that the one Yahshua Victor Rahmani Nuka Yahushua upon and for Hua Lahu Karim. As for the one who turns away from the remembrance of the gracious God, we appoint him a devil, who will become his intimate companion. And this is something that
this devil will continue to divert this person like but not by like physically, but whisper into this person's ears, and then until it is too late, he will say yeah, later by Nima by Nicobar, there must be a fine user of only me and you have been as far away as the east is from the west. And how, how?
What an evil comrade that is for me. So Cory, the idea here is this
that Oran says you have to you're
the person here himself abandons the remembrance of Allah. Yeah, sure, man. And then the consequences he suffers. But then the at the end when they're held accountable, you are they are going to try to blame anything in anyone except themselves. But that is the incorrect attitude. That's you know, fallacious. It won't get any you any you won't get you anything. The point the lesson for us is, let's not blame circumstances and others for what we're going through is try to address this right now. While we still have agency we also have choice but Allah is still giving us many, many chances. Okay. The Quran mentions musala salaam, here is number 46. As IV one of the
homies is going to mention most of Islam, but also not Moosa bi, Tina, was it after our mela?
Allah Indira sudo, or bill, Allah mean, we sent Moses with our science to Pharaoh and his nobles and he said, I am the Lord and the messenger of the Lord of the Universe, okay? When he brought them the size of his Lord, they ridiculed him, either human ha, yelled ohakune.
minute he made it ilahi acabado woman or even even though each sign we showed them was greater than the previous one, they still left. ohana home, blah, blah, blah, home Iran, we afflicted them with torment so that they might return to the right path. There was adverse adversity that they faced, maybe they would wake up and return to the worship of Allah. But instead what did they do? Their attitude was what the Fallujah USA Hello, the ruler Nabokov, Mr. Haider in his sourcer call on your Lord, by virtue of his pledge to you, we will certainly accept his guide except guidance. In another matter, don't just remove this from us. And we will accept you as a prophet for Ramakrishna and
we'll adopt either humean cartoon, but when that punishment was revealed, they broke their word, that attitude of, you know, a person who is a has a, you know, they're not seeing what they mean, right. But more than just that, thinking of the world as like a transaction, Hey, I'll worship God, and I'll get out of trouble right now. Right. So my worldly life is better. That is the problematic attitude that is being highlighted here.
And, of course, would fit our own and as people we know, that were that led them to what was their end game? And look at this passage, right? But our own is addressing his people because people are perhaps, you know, wondering, are they really doing the right thing? So he starts to address them? And he says, isn't the kingdom of Egypt mine? Are these rivers that flow at my feet? Are they not mine? Do you not see? Am I not better than this contemptible men? Were mahina Allah can you been? He can barely make sense he barely is able to speak clearly. For Lola will clearly he has failed to meet them. Why have not armlets of gold men bestowed on him? Because he's to wear gold bracelets and
whatnot. And why is there not a train of angels accompanying him? Okay. It's very similar to what the people of Makkah would say the prophets of Salaam festa hoffa coma who, for ataru. In this way, he fooled his people, he scared them and they obeyed him. They were him themselves. rebellious, people.
Then the end as the Quran mentions is they were drowned. And this was Allah's revenge and Allah made them an example for people afterwards. Okay, so this is more so that's mentioned here in this surah Okay. Then Risa is mentioned I saw this was mentioned. And well, Mr. Moody Babu Mariama matalin that omocha men who have said dawn when Jesus the son of Mary is held up as an example, your people raise an outcry on this, okay?
They would say, is he better? Or are gods? And, you know, they would say, well, the Christians are saying he's a god, are you saying their God is better than our gods? Well, that's not what the Prophet is saying the Prophet saying, he's a prophet of Allah. And he's a great prophet,
man, Babu laka Elijah that are the only citing to you as a challenge as a contention, and they are a contentious people. He was a servant, who we favored, and made him an example for the children of Israel. And then Allah says something very interesting. He says we're in the hula Elmo lisara he is a sign of the our bilateral nebia have no doubt about it. He is his return is a sign of the hour that's about to come. Okay. When he comes, it's a sign that the hour is very, very near. How does it autumn stocky, this is the straight path.
There is a description on the believers of the believers and the Day of Judgment hallion Luna lsrii is 66 are they merely waiting for the hour, which will come upon them suddenly and take them unaware of Allah Yama is embattled only by Leonardo one in Lowell McDuffie in the friends on that day will become each other's enemies, except the righteous they will remain friends that
righteousness is what carries over on that day. Yeah, by the Oh my servants, you do not need to fear this day, nor shall you grieve.
These are the ones who believed in our revelation and surrendered themselves to us on the whole journey. johnetta enter Paradise. Unto as well as you can talk about our own rejoicing both you and your spouses will be in this happy state. You will draw for Allah him used to have him in a club, dishes and Goblet of gold will be passed around them with all their souls desire, and their eyes delight FEMA, he hamartia he'll enforce but are you? Right? This idea of gold goblets and dishes is an expression of luxury, the most the ultimate luxury, but more than that, it is whatever the soul desires, whatever you want, is there whatever pleases your eye is going to be there until via
holiday, and there's no fear of losing this beautiful
is beautiful, these beautiful,
these beautiful gifts from Allah, but those who rejected a lot closer Majidi mean criminals, right? What's the crime the crime is actually they rejected their Lord rejected their purpose in life, the turbulence of life perhaps push them out or the the was a catalyst for them, you know, rejecting their purpose in life and that is their crime in which you remain if you either be Jana mahali Dune, they shall endure forever the tournament of hell. Now you factor and home from which there will be no relief and they will remain remain in utter despair. It is not who it is are we who have wronged them, but it was they who were wrongdoers themselves, so mavala Now hold on I can can almost all you
mean you notice this is a very constant theme in the Quran. Quran reminds us of this manado Yeah, Malik. They will cry. Oh Malik or master this is the name of the angel of hellfire. Jacobi la nada book. Ask your Lord, let your Lord put an end to us. Just kill us all our inner komaki soon the angel will reply. No, you are here to stay. We have brought you the truth. But most of you have an aversion or like in axacon will have a carry hoon. You had an aversion to the truth you saw the truth you rejected it. And that is where you are today. I'm abramo Omron have the determined upon a course have they made up their mind to reject the Prophet Salaam to reject Islam to reject the
worship of Allah Allah and for enamel Berryman than Allah to has determined their destiny.
This is the thing that Ron mentions the Quran
Surah zacco mentioned in the Quran. It reminds
First of all, unwholesome as I told you in the very beginning, the high means are encouraging the prophets on them to be patient to be forgiving to overlook because the in He's inviting people who are acting in a rash manner because of their power, the people are mucked up, right because of their upper hand. So the Prophet is being told encouraged extra and the surah has to be gentle. And, you know, we overlooking an ayah number 89. The last I have the surah says first and homophone Salaam bear with them or props on them, and say to them peace, they will soon come to know the soon come to know that you are the true prophet. And if they continued on this path, they will still come to know
what is the truth and what is false hood surah Han
This is the fifth of the seven hominems at the Han means the smoke. And what is this talking about? Again first about it mentions the Quran, right and then in mentions later to cover in nutans Allahu Freelander. Thema Baraka, we've sent it down on a blessed night. This is the night of power inshallah, maybe tonight is the night of power, this blessed night, maybe it is on the 27th maybe it is on the 29th right, that's Thursday night, or Saturday night or Monday night, right? Whatever remains over Milan. These are the three that are there. So this is panela an opportunity for us to really worship Allah commemorate the night when the four R's revelation started by worshiping Allah
more and more and that was a night that is better than 1000 months. And that's the night all Sophia you Franco kulu Amen. Hakeem all matchers are decreed for the year. In that night, the decree from Allah is sent to the angels
on that night, and they are the ones who then you know, executed and I happens on the night of power The Night of Decree, I'm Rama 90. Now this is a command by our This is a decree by our by our command, Allah is the one who has been sending messages as a mercy from your Lord he hears all's and knows all gave
in mentions the, you know, the idea of the Doohan I number 10. For today beyond that this summer will be the honeymoon been waiting for the day when the sky brings forth plainly visible clouds of smoke. That is the day of judgment, y'all shun NASA or dabolim that will involve the people this is a painful punishment. Robin actually Ivana and other but in the meantime, they will say, Lord, relieve us from this torment, for truly we are now believers in you. But now that it's too late, when you see the punishment and you believe is too late, if you see the angel of death, and you believe it's too late, you believe and do good deeds while you're still alive. Another homos How can
they benefit from this reminder when before they had a clear profit, no matter what lower on who or excuse me?
And then they turned away from him saying that he is a madman. More lemon mage. No, he is taught by others. He's learning this from somewhere else and plagiarizing it. Hmm. This is a very, you know, like a slurs a trope to say that the process of man he himself is an unlettered human being he cannot read or write. How can he be acquiring this knowledge? And who are the sources that he's acquired from please tell right more Allah Majnoon, Allah says in that case, you will either be kalila we will ease the punishment for a little bit, but then at the end, you are going to come back to us okay.
The, for our most artists that I mentioned, and for our own is mentioned here as well, but for Tanaka, Blanca Raja hombre Solon Karim. Similarly, like Croatia being tested right now, Allah has sent had tested the Pharaoh and said to him, a sent sent to him in Noble Messenger, who said, hand over the servants of God to me, I'm a trustworthy messenger. Do not set yourself above God, I bring you clear authority, and I sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord less you stole me or tried to hurt me, right?
But he made the choice, lord, oh my lord, these are sinful people. So he was told, set out with my servants for scbi by the Leyland in Nakamoto 923 set out with my sermons by night for you will certainly be pursued, but as you perhaps past the night and you have crossed, the sea has split and you've crossed over the sea. And now Moosa is hitting the sea to close that up, back up again. Allah says what to do kill bahara one, leave the sea behind you parted, because they are going to be drowned. And then they came and the sea quote
collapsed on them and they drowned and how many gardens and fountains and left behind and cornfields and splendid buildings, blessings and pleasant things that they enjoyed, and that was all left for someone else to inherit. From our bucket. It was summer, outdoor Makana Marine, neither heaven nor Earth wept for them, nor were they allowed any respect Subhana Allah, they thought they were so special, right? Nothing, nothing changed in the universe when they were drowned.
Nothing changed. Also, this is an interesting, you know, inference great are very interesting reference, excuse me, to Egyptian theology. This is the Pharaonic Egyptian theology, they will think that when the pharaoh pass away, the sky cries and the earth cries, okay, so the Quran references their theology and says, that didn't happen, because that doesn't happen for you people gave, that doesn't happen for like, the pharaohs when they pass away. Okay.
So this is a very interesting thing, because you don't find a reference of this in any other scripture like this. And again, they said in the very beginning, here, the prophet is more than one month known. Where is he learning this from? How did he know about Egyptian theology? That was actually until very recently unknown to the people because there was no way to decode the hieroglyphics that are there. Where is he learning from one lemon was known from where clearly this is not someone who is just taught, he's not learning from people he's learning from Allah subhanho wa Taala. A glimpse, Allah gives us the terrible punishment of the Fire of Hell, what are called the
inertia gelatos. Boom, the fruit of the fruit of the country is a food of the sinners. And it is a terrible food, it like the dregs of oil, it will boil in their bellies, and it will be like the boiling of hot water that in the fire of hell will be a severe torture for the people. We asked for less protection from that. And then there is a Surah Surah. Joshua, the one after that, so number 45, which I'll just pick the reference to you in a sec. And then we'll look at it tomorrow in a little bit more detail. Joshua also begins with hammy mantains you look at Abdulaziz al Hakim, but then Subhana Allah, this surah specifically addresses what I feel is people who are atheist in their
in their worldview, or a terminator father illa Huwa, who were albala who Allahu Allah and consider the one who has taken his own deity, his own desire as a deity, whom God allow us to stray in the face of knowledge, sealing his ears and heart and covering his eyes, who can guide such a person after God has abandoned him, we'll pick this up and charge more I don't want to rush through this actually. And we're actually at the end of the just the Jews ends right here. So it won't hurt us to start from a page before inshallah tomorrow. And then we will look at the 26th Jos. In sha Allah tomorrow nearing the end of Ramadan, we ask Allah to give us the ability to remember and to practice
as well ahead and I'll see you all again, same time, same place. So why did Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Stouffer to really mean which is located Salaam Alaikum
