Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine. So then when they come to LA he was

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

continuing with our series here in the month of Ramadan where we are looking at an exploring dimension and the concepts of peace tranquility serenity in the Quran.

00:00:28--> 00:00:31

Today we're going to be looking at

00:00:32--> 00:00:50

a set of verses ayat from Surah Surah number six, we've talked about the suit on previously, the ayat that we're looking at today are is 125 126 and 27.

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

In these ayat Allah subhanaw taala

00:00:55--> 00:01:00

he begins by saying, For me you did Allahu and yeah, do who.

00:01:02--> 00:01:18

Whenever Allah wants to guide someone, whenever Allah wants to guide someone, yes, Shara Sodre, who lil Islam. Allah opens, expands that person's chest for Islam.

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

Meaning Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:23--> 00:01:42

opens up the person's heart and allows them to really embrace their faith and to be able to internalize that guidance from Allah to take in that light. And to be able to experience that peace and tranquility we're talking about.

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

Well, man, you read the annual dilemma.

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

But when Allah wants to misguide someone,

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

yet you're also Dora who died and hydrogen.

00:01:56--> 00:02:03

Then Allah makes their heart, their chest, constricted, tight.

00:02:05--> 00:02:10

That it they experience an uneasiness hydrogen.

00:02:11--> 00:02:20

They feel uneasy. They feel constricted, tight, can undermine your saw or doofus.

00:02:21--> 00:02:30

As if that person is climbing up into the sky, flying straight up into the sky, and the idea is, they feel like they can't breathe.

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

They feel like they can't breathe.

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

Today alakija Allah Allahu Allah, Allah.

00:02:40--> 00:02:49

And Allah says that that is how Allah inflicts his punishment, his consequences upon those people who do not believe

00:02:50--> 00:03:24

that when people refuse to believe in what Allah has set down, they refuse to open their hearts to the guidance, the revelation from Allah. This is how Allah punishes them in this dunya that their chests become constricted, they can't breathe, they feel uneasy. They feel like something's wrong all the time. What we're essentially describing here is the opposite of tranquility. It's the opposite of peace. It's the opposite of serenity.

00:03:26--> 00:03:32

And Allah says that going back to the first point, to open your heart,

00:03:33--> 00:03:43

to open your, your your mind, your heart, to the Quran, to Islam, to the guidance and revelation from Allah.

00:03:44--> 00:03:54

Wa Serato become a stocky man, that this is the path of your Lord laid out very clearly for you.

00:03:56--> 00:04:08

But the first Sunlen Ayatollah Khomeini at the Quran, Allah says that we have so clearly laid out our signs, we have so clearly laid out all the road signs,

00:04:09--> 00:04:23

all the guidance, all the direction that is needed in order to reach the destination. Lee call me at the karoun for people who are willing to take heed for people who are willing to pay attention for people who are willing to look and listen

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

for people who are willing to think about what is being said to them.

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

And then finally, Allah says,

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

law whom dad was Salah

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

law whom Darussalam

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

reserved for these people is the house of peace

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

with their Lord. Now what's really fascinating is we see this word a salam, peace, tranquility, but there is a place that is being described as peaceful. There is a place that has been

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

characterized with this piece Dar Salam, what does that exactly mean? What does that refer to? So some of the scholars mentioned a Salam is one of the names and the attributes of Allah.

00:05:13--> 00:05:28

So that was salam means the place, that is that Allah has reserved, the place where you get to be near Allah, the place where you get to see Allah, you get to talk to Allah, you get to be near Allah, that place.

00:05:30--> 00:05:36

So it's a place of closeness and nearness to Allah. That's Darussalam.

00:05:37--> 00:05:48

It's also described as paradise. Paradise is called that of Santa. Because paradise is the place where you'll never have to worry about anything ever again.

00:05:49--> 00:06:15

You will never experience any difficulty you will never experience any anxiety. You'll never have any kind of nervousness. You'll never fear anything. You'll never need anything. It's the ultimate place of peace and tranquility, the abode of fulfillment. Allah subhanaw taala describes this in the Quran. Allah says women are in the who like a stuck we don't

00:06:16--> 00:06:39

that people who are near Allah, there is no conceit. There is no arrogance. There is no aggression. There is no transgression near Allah. Allah subhanaw taala. In the Quran, he describes paradise to us in a very beautiful succinct way, where Allah subhanaw taala tells us that paradise is that place, that

00:06:40--> 00:07:09

filata Allah, Allah, Allah who made karate Aryan, no so can fathom the kind of peace and tranquility that is reserved for people in paradise. Local V. hamata. Shaheed unphysical welcome down, that everything you could ever desire will be made readily available to you.

00:07:11--> 00:07:32

And that paradise is reserved with for them with their Lord. But yet, there's a third meaning built into this idea as well that'll set up the scholars also explained them with us and explain Darussalam can also be in reference to this world. For some people, this world this dunya will become their Dharamsala

00:07:34--> 00:08:09

because Allah will grant them peace and tranquility.

00:08:10--> 00:08:16

I am with the ones who have humbled their hearts for me.

00:08:17--> 00:08:22

They have humbled themselves, they've discarded all the vanity of this world.

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

They don't play the games of this dunya anymore. And they've humbled themselves for me, Allah says that I am with them.

00:08:32--> 00:09:17

So, the life of this road can become the home and the peace, the home in the place in the abode of peace and tranquility for a person if they are willing to fulfill the earlier conditions.
