In yesterday's lesson in the previous session, we covered quite a few out, we probably the most that we've done on any single day, here during the sessions.
Part of the reason and the purpose for that was up till now much of the discourse was about messengers and prophets. And so they would oftentimes be required a backstory or an explanation as to to contextualize exactly what it's talking about, and what it's what it is in reference to. However, the idea that we're studying now are more of just general Imani discourse. All right, it's a lot of just basic eemaan, that has been talked about a man in a lot Yemen, in the al Qaeda in Yemen, in the messengers, the day of judgment, distinguishing between right and wrong. And so that we don't need that historical analysis at that point, we just basically have to understand the
message of the ayat. And because we've talked about the period of revelation that this is in reference to, that these ions were revealed in the quite possibly in the end of the fourth year, or in the beginning of the fifth year of prophethood. So basically was revealed very early on during the message. And during the Dow and mcca. Therefore, we're still basically discussing EMR 101. These are out there talking about him one on one. So if they are very simple in their approach, they're meant to be simple in their approach. And in, in that in and of itself, there's a lesson for us that there needs to be the primary, the the primary discourse, the main discussion that needs to be
happening out there on the public platform, whether it be with Muslims or non Muslims, regardless of that, whenever we are talking eemaan we are talking basic beliefs with Muslims or non Muslims, it needs to be a very basic, very straightforward discussion. There is a there is a time and a place for advanced discussions, whether it'd be about advanced Aki da, or it'd be,
you know, very, very deep philosophical issues. But there's a time and a place for that. And there's an audience for that, we should never take advanced levels of advanced discussions with an athlete, and very, very advanced philosophical discussions, and make them commonplace and make them public and put them on the public platform. Because what we don't realize what we don't realize when we do that, you as an advanced student of knowledge, or us somebody who maybe has started studying Islam A few years ago, and even if it's part time, you've been taking seminars and courses, you've been listening to 16 cd sets, you've been reading books in your free time, and three, four years into
your journey, you're at the point where you quite enjoy and you actually literally benefit. I'm not saying it's not any benefit, you do benefit, but you're at a certain point, you've built up to this point for four years. And you're at that point when that now when when any mom or a chef or an instructor sits down, and they have an advanced discussion on nakida or they're talking about deep philosophical issues and the issue of colorism and things like that, that you actually benefit from that discussion. But just because you're benefiting from that discussion, when you take that discussion, and then you go to your Sunday school
Then you go to your youth halaqa at your Masjid, or you get an opportunity to give a hook bar. And then you decide now let's throw down some Calum talk. Alright, let's talk about some advanced difference of opinion Arpita. And you start giving that to people who have not built up to that point, they're not ready for it yet,
then you just created a problem. And what you need to understand is that when when, when the people that study from us are the people that listen to our lectures, when they do things like that, that we give certain lectures, or we have certain classes, or we have certain discourse, that is meant for a more intermediate or advanced group of people. And when those intermediate advanced people will take that and deliver it back down to the very beginner level people, not keeping in mind who it was meant for. And what was the exact context of the discussion, that this is four years into a discourse.
That actually creates more work for us. And I've fielded numerous concerns and questions from people, I literally had a young man, a gentleman, a very intelligent young individual come up to me and say that he was actually a convert. He accepted Islam A few years ago,
there was a weekly halaqa going on in the masjid from one of the more, you know,
how would I say this, one of the more punctual students of such programs would go out to the seminars in the classes and take the online classes, and read the books and read the text that the teachers were recommending. Alright, so a more regular punctual student, a more regular student. So obviously, they should go in take their knowledge and disseminated within the community and pass it on to people. That's exactly what we want our students to do. But then they have to understand what is meant for that audience. They basically have to remember four years ago, five years ago, what did I need to hear? And that's what they need to think about. Now, what do I enjoy listening to now, but
what did I need five years ago, what what have benefited me five years ago, and that's what they need to carry on to the to the people that they're helping out. So there was such a student in that community, and he was holding a weekly halaqa for the other college students. And unfortunately, he started delving into these very, very advanced issues, specifically in the area of Aikido. So I gave the hookah one time there at that Masjid.
And this gentleman comes up to me and I give a very basic hood bar on an ayah from Surah. Yunus, which just talks about believing in Allah, believing in the law, and how Allah helps us whenever we need him. But once Allah has solved our problem for us allies taken away our difficulty from us, then what do we do? Then? What do we do every basic discussion, and there's a very basic example given in the Koran, there's a people on a boat, and the boat gets hit by a storm. And everybody freaks out and flips out like, as is human nature, everybody starts freaking out, starts tripping. And then they say, oh, Allah, save us, save us, help us. Alright, and it told us a little while ago
that these people are not believers to begin with. But now they're tripping and because they're about to die, they start saying, oh, la la, please help us we'll believe in you will be good people from here on out. And Allah saves them a lot saves him from the most terrible storm in the middle of the ocean that you can imagine Allah saves them. And then the ISS as soon as Allah says them, then they go right back to business as usual. Allah Who?
What about religion? What about Islam? Nah, that's me. Then they go right back to being who they were before because the problem is gone. Quran gives such a basic example. So I just simply talked about that in the hotbar. So this gentleman comes up to me, says, I accepted a song four years ago. And I started coming I started getting involved in there was a weekly halakhah going on, and this brother had more knowledge than I did, and I wanted to benefit I wanted to grow. And he started talking about these advanced issues, and I got so confused and insincere. He says he's a convert. He says, I got so confused. I literally started doubting my faith. And he said, I had a crisis, like a
break in my email. And he says, I left. He says, I basically left for two years. He goes, I don't know if I really apostate it or disbelieve that. He goes, I don't think so. Because I still felt like I had a connection to Allah. But he goes, I had to pull away from the community. I pulled away from everyone and everything. I isolated myself from my Muslim side. And I went back to being who I was. And so first I stopped coming to the masjid. I still prayed individually. But then eventually I even stopped praying individually. And he says recently, just recently, about a few weeks ago, I just kind of had he says, I've matured now and I kind of came to this understanding realization that
what that young man was saying wasn't representative of what my faith really is. That I needed to go back and reflect on why did I come to Islam to begin with, and he said, I started forcing myself to come back and he says the goodbye you gave today really, really kind of solidified.
things for me. And then I sat down with him at that time. And this is through the tofik of Allah. And I wouldn't know how to do this if my teachers didn't tell me this, I learned this from my teachers. I was that same overzealous kid who was like, yeah, I'm gonna go talk about like, an advanced difference of opinion with a bunch of newbies. Right? So I was once upon a time I had that same mentality to my teachers. Come here, give you the slap, right? He didn't say that. But you get my drift, right to come in. You're young. And that's not how we roll. Right? And so, through the training for my teachers, I was able to have that perspective. And I sat down had a discussion with
the with the brother, and Mashallah he was able to realize some things. And what I remember here now is my teacher telling me a story. He said he went to after he had graduated, he was he lived a little bit away from where he had studied, like a day's worth of journey away. And this is before planes and things like that. He said, he would have to take the train. And it was like a day's journey on a train. And so that's how far he lived from where he had studied where his couple of his main teachers were. So he had gone back and started up a machine in a school in his own community, and he was working in this community. But he would every few months, he would regularly like, take
out a couple of days, go back, go and spend some time with his teachers kind of ask them some questions, tell them how things are going to get their counsel in their constant supervision and advice. And that's the way things should be done. By the way. That's the way things should be done. All right. So he says he goes back and he spends a couple of days there. And the morning that he's about to go back. And his teacher used to give a dose after sellouts and fudger. And his teacher had been preaching and teaching in that community for over 50 years. admin preaching and teaching for over 50 years. And his most regular punctual students, like it's very, very advanced students were
Shoryuken scholars themselves, they're the ones who would come every day for a lot of budget and sit with him for an hour, an hour and a half after swapping funds. And so he said, You know, I used to attend those sessions whenever I would visit. And I was sitting there listening. And he said a couple of very, like deep and heavy things. He said a couple of really deep, heavy things. And it was there was a little bit in there that was kind of tough, like he was doing therapy. Because these are not like new people. It's not it's past the point of it's past the point of just motivating people. Now he's doing hardcore data, we have a students. Now we telling them deep stuff, he's on
the lookout for this, watch out for this, if you say this, you got this issue and this problem, he's kind of cracking down on them a little bit. Because these are people who've been studying with him for 50 years, decades. And so the students that are sitting there writing everything down, you know, those students in the class, you know, I sometimes make fun of you guys who write down every little word that comes out their mouth and say there's writing away. All right, so he said, I'm writing away right away. And he's no, he sees me writing away. And then he says, We're having breakfast after the dust has finished. And after breakfast, I'm supposed to board the train and be on my way.
So I were having breakfast, he goes, come here you eat with me. Like right, sit next to me while we eat. And he goes, I saw you taking notes this morning, Mashallah. And he's like, yeah, good stuff. And he's like, All right, good stuff. Let me tell you something. So when you go back to your community, what I was talking about this morning, you don't talk about it there with those people. He said, I visited your community. He said, I had hosted my shift to you know, so my people could see my teacher could meet my teacher. So he said, I visited your community, it's a very fresh community. There's new people to this stuff. There's still new, they're still fresh. Their EMR is
still developing, you still have to motivate them, you still have to inspire them, you still have to have that light, soft touch. You're not at the point of cracking down and doing the hardcore data. No, no, you're not ready to be saying things like that.
When you put in 4050 years, then you can talk like that. They're not ready to hear those things yet, because they haven't studied with somebody for a couple of decades. They're not ready, it's just not there yet, the discourse, the dialogue is not there. And this goes back to the Hadith. And so my teacher told me this story saying this is what I was taught by my teacher. And then he said, You need to watch yourself to write. And this relates back to a Hadith of the prophets a lot. He said, where he says ends in in NASA, NASA who
deal with people according to their level,
meaning basic discussions for beginners, intermediate discussions for people who are average students of knowledge, advanced discussions for the very senior, tenured student.
What can luminesce Pedro apulian and speak to people according to the level of their understanding, speak to people according to level of their understanding.
And so that's something very important so I just wanted to take out a quick moment to talk about this, that because it's kind of a surprise, we were at that point in sort of money on where to IR three, it will take us an hour and we were
roll through like nine out yesterday. So it's kind of like, is he just trying to finish up? Right? So if I was trying to finish up the promise made, which I apologize for the promise made was sort of muddy a menthol Ha. All right. And again, I apologize for that. But But I think quantity, quality is more important than quantity. Knowing get better is more important than just knowing a lot. mediocrity is never a good thing. Nobody likes me mediocrity. And so that's why we kind of stuck to quality, but the reason why the conversations flowing now, there's not a historical context to the if it's, and if you notice in size to the very short, brief, concise, it's almost like bam, bam,
bam, it's just points being driven home and very basic points, when you read about what it said in yesterday's lesson,
very, very basic points. That
trying to find it now. I just lost it.
All right. Very basic points, talking about things like
that the human being says that, after I'm revived, I excuse me, after I'm dead, will I actually be revived again? Will I be brought back to life over again? Doesn't this human being remember we created him in the first place? Why wouldn't we create him again, basic basic arguments, basic discussions, but that's what we need. That's what people need. And that's the type of discourse and discussion that we need to focus on as well. For for our sake, our community sake, our children sake, our youth sake, and even non Muslims as well. This should be the primary mode and means of conducting the hour as well. But if so, starting from number 75, but men can have hit Balaji fall
young dude, Lahore rush man who muda say, so the Prophet salami, some is being commanded to tell people to say to people to announce to the people,
man, Ghana, whosoever is or whoever was, but again, the kind of here isn't necessarily to say that was like past tense, it's more for emphasis. So whosoever is fit banality. fitball. Allah, Allah Allah means misguidance. Literally, if you were to again, break it down a little put it in simpler terms, it means to be lost, whosoever is lost and the word Fie hears for imagery, whosoever is immersed in just being lost, meaning that person is so lost, they can't even see the right way anymore. The person is completely drowning in misguidance, man, Ghana field bollati. Allah says from fun, young, good,
fall, young dude. Now let me deconstruct this word a little, because this is a little bit of a complicated word. The base in the root of the word is Monday, and we do Matsuyama do l method. Basically, what it refers to is it refers to extending something, it means to extend something like extending the rope of something like kind of like, if like, imagine you have like an animal on a chain, like you have a dog on a leash, alright, then when you press the little button to extend the leash just a little bit. All right, that's kind of like that extension, when you give the leash just a little bit of like leeway. you extend it, you're flying a kite, and you decide to kind of unwrap
the string or you're fishing and you decide to kind of leave, give it a little bit more give. When you give it a little bit of a give. That's what it means. That's literally what it means. And the reason why I'm explaining with all these analogies, because the imagery is very important here. So imagine a fishing rod, imagine a leash, imagine like a kite, and you just kind of give it a little bit of leeway a little bit more give you give it a little bit more string, a little bit more rope. Alright, so that's the same imagery in this word, file, young dude. Now the file that's added in the beginning of it, it means then at that time, it is appropriate, it should be given, it is
appropriate that some leave some rope, some extension should be given folium do the law who to him? Who's the him referring to the same guy that's drowning in misguidance?
Who should give him a little bit of give? Who is it appropriate to give some give at that time, to give some rope to give a little bit of an extension at that time? All right, man. Of course referring to Allah. But again, we see again, the attribute of Allah or Rockman occurring in the surah, like I talked about this is very constant throughout the pseudo this the attribute of Allah, oftentimes when refers back to a library first time as a man, the Abundantly Merciful. So it's saying it is appropriate for Rockman to give a little bit of an extension to that guy who is drowning in misguidance, Mandarin, Mandarin. Now again, for the more advanced students of grammar,
this is called Makoto Tilak. This comma for Odin McCulloch. All right, what cibola Jeremy jumia refers to as Elon Musk. guys remember a long long time ago, all right. It referred to as Elon Musk, right. But what that does is it creates more emphasis
exaggeration and creates more emphasis. So it's saying that it is appropriate, it is befitting it is the habit, if you will the Sunnah of our man, that He gives an extension to that type of a person who is drowning in misguidance. And it gives them not just an extension, but it gives him a lot of extension. He gives him a great deal of extension in that situation.
What does that mean? It means that when somebody reaches a certain point in misguidance, where the person may move in realizes that they, they hear the truth, they understand the truth, but they say, not going to believe in it.
Don't want to accept it. What are you going to do about it? When they reach that point? It is then befitting a rock man to give them a little bit more of an extension in fact, not just a little bit more but because of that Medan that emphasis to give them a lot of extension.
Why? Number one I mentioned the attribute of a lot of rock man because he is a rock man. He is a rock man he doesn't give up on people
you know we say in English he don't give up on people. A man doesn't give up on people. So this guy is a fit
let's use fit on as an example let's go ahead and use fit on as an example. fit on was a bad bad dude.
All right, for Ron was a bad bad person a horrible human being
all right. But even in that situation, even in that situation. What is the last part of hoteller doing for fit around?
Sign after sign after sign after sign? One after another after another after another
photo suddenly move to fun. Alright, first you already have the signs of musala salam, the staff and the shining glowing hand. Then Allah says personality will do fun. We send you know storms and winds upon them.
First Allah Allahu tufano well gerada and then we send locust upon them, welcome Allah and then an infestation of lice, what buffer they are and then an infestation of frogs. What dumb and then a complete spreading of blood everything turning into blood. It mufa Salatin very clear, open distinct signs, one after another after another after another, and when each sign would come fit, I would go crying to Mousavi Sara Musab please Come on. Come on Musab, please. I promise that's it.
I'm gonna change man. That's it. I agree. What you have to say I accept all of your terms. Everything's good. We're cool. Everything's all good in the hood. Just come on, make dua to Allah. go pray to your God to stop all this. I can't take this no more. So Allah would say, okay, Mashallah. Fallon's gonna make doba rounds gonna accept the Amman, Islam. Wonderful. And Allah was Ali Salaam would make to our law remove this difficulty. And the difficulty would be removed, the storms have been lifted, the tornadoes have been lifted away from phenomena and these people and it goes back to fit on and it goes, alright, let's sit down and discuss this. How are we exactly going
to do this? He says do what says you're going to accept the salmon. You're going to start stop oppressing Vanessa Elan, you're gonna be a good person. Now. He's like, Who said that? He says You did? I don't know what you're talking about. Why don't you get out of my face before I do something bad to you. It goes right back to that behavior. He goes right back to that behavior. So now what happens?
Not it doesn't round doesn't get struck by lightning. Round doesn't get killed for round isn't just Allah doesn't send this immediately. Let's send another sign. And then again, the same discussion happens and if it does the same thing turns back on his word again, another sign and then another sign and then another sign another sign another sorry.
This is the mercy of a law. This is our man one opportunity after another after another after another. I will soufiane accepted Islam when fetch America 20 years after the Dow was started and not one, but in multiple wars, did not just participate in those words and not just fight against them. As soon as he led the army against the Muslims. He led the army against the Muslims. He led the cause against Islam multiple times and at the end of all of it within the last panel intelligence
one opportunity after another after another. This is the nature of a law. This is what law is a law. So this is befitting a rough man in His mercy that he keeps giving an extension keeps giving an opportunity.
The other thing that the scholars do mentioned the professional dimension is at the same time this extension keeps being given
to allow these people
to kind of
seal their own fate. If you
Seal their own fate. Like, I'm going to see how much like how, how badly you can mess this up. I'm gonna go ahead and let you do what you need to do. I'm gonna let you do your thing.
So the person kind of builds the case against themselves, you get it, a person is building a case against themselves. And that's another element of it as well. But the primary purpose of mentioning this the fall the alarm in the beginning, all right, is to say that this is how Allah subhanaw taala handles these situations. So to remove the doubt that somebody might have that, Oh, these people, they're not being put in check, because well, I as a biller, maybe Allah is not capable of putting them in check. Maybe Allah is not capable of checking them. Well. Of course, we know that's not the case. But rather This is how a lot deals with such people. This is just how Allah deals with these
people. Finally, undo the
damage done. Now a little bit of Bulava that I'd like to point out here, some Bulava that I'd like to point out some Arabic eloquence and I apologize for those people listening who might not be able to grasp exactly what I'm talking about. It involves the not knowing a little bit of advanced sort of advanced grammar, morphology, but in shallow try to simplify the discussion. If you look at the word final young dude, fully understood, this is in what is called the jasm form. This is masoom file madora Alma gym. All right, this is the mudroom form for the students in the Quran intensive class is basically what you learn to call lightest. It's in the lightest form. All right, when a
word like this and this is grammatically categorized as a word called muda off a number Rudolph All right. I don't want to issues tomorrow morning. It's called Moodle, I've it's a different issue altogether, what that basically refers to when a verb, the last two letters of the base of the verb are the same letter. So the three root letters of this word are mean dial and dial, mean dial and dial. So when the two last final letters out of the three, when the two last ones are the same letter, dialing down, they become merged together, muda,
muda, muda, holla, Hulu, etc, etc. All right.
For a few. All right, so in this type of a case, when you make it lightest, when you make it doesn't mudroom, at that time, it could be set in three ways.
Or even four ways excuse me, it could be set in four different ways. You could say failure mode Do you could say failure mode D. You could say failure mode de or you could also say file young dude. You could separate the two letters remove the shutdown the drum, break the Iran from Iran, you could break the electron. And at that time the letters become separated. Failure Mode do failure mode, definitely mo D file young dude.
Now, all four are permissible. You can take any one of them. They're all okay.
That's fine. They're all okay. But why did Allah choose this one? Notice the mme at the end, I told you that for exaggeration. Allah subhanaw taala. Even in the word the physical word is trying is demonstrating how much of an extension he gives them by separating the two letters. Finally, young dude
is much more extended than folium would do.
So let's separate selectors to literally physically, visually show you the extension of lines giving them by separating the
file we undo the Ramadan. So Allah has it is befitting Allah, befitting our man that he will give them an extension a huge extension. Let's see how much these people can do. Then Allah says Hector, Hector, until so they are the shows you did now this is going to tell us allies now telling us how much does Allah give them an extension for To what extent did they get this extension had that until either Oh, either means future, roll means they have seen until they have seen. So you have a word that puts something in the future like either and then you have an old past tense. It basically means past tense by using the patent, it means future tense, but by using the past tense, you get
the emphasis of the past tense. So either means future or always past tense. You combine them two together, you get the meaning of future with the emphasis of past tense is again Quranic eloquence Hata either Oh, until they have seen my UI Duna that which they were promised. So until so they will be given an extension until they finally see that what was promised to them, the warnings they used to be
given to them, when they get to be told, listen, you better stop doing this. Because if you don't, then this is going to happen when that promise is now being fulfilled before their eyes, that's tilde when they get the extension. And now what the word they promised in melodica. Either they were promised the added punishment in this dunya were in massage order, they were promised the coming of the hour.
And that, of course refers to the life of the hereafter that the Day of Judgment happens. So either they were promised punishment in this dunya like what happened to the people of God like what people happened to the people assembled like what happened to Fidel and his people were in Massara, or they were promised the life of the hereafter the Day of Judgment.
Sometimes people are not punished by a lie in this world, meaning they don't die some horrible, brutal death as a punishment.
They die naturally.
But like, the like the the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu would say,
when a person dies, his Fiamma has occurred.
When a person dies, his the AMA has started.
So it's making reference to that fact that either they'll die through some great punishment of a law that will descend upon them like you did on Fifth down and touch people. Or maybe they won't happen to them.
But nevertheless, a second they die they close their eyes in this world and they leave this world in their cuyama has started, hell has started to unfold for these people. So either one of the two is coming for them. And when that moment arrives, now that extension that that leashes yanked, so leash has been given and given and given, and what's the nature of this animal? What is it? What does it do? What does the chi do? The more that you give it string? What does the guy do? float farther and farther and farther and farther? It'll go as far as you let it go. It'll go as far as you let it go. Unless it's Texas in the summer, and they'll just catch on fire. Right? All right. But nevertheless,
normally what will happen to the kite the more string you give it what I'll keep happening. I'll just go further and further and further. The more you let it go.
But then what happens when you draw that guy back in you pull the string and what happens to the kite it comes ripping back. So the leech will be yanked.
And that's when they'll feel the pain. In melodica. MSR, Allah says for say Allah Muna, very soon, the scene on the verb your five means therefore In conclusion, the scene here means the future, but it means the near future very soon. So unless there's even this leash, this this string this this extension that I was giving them, they shouldn't think that it's an extension something for centuries and centuries. They shouldn't think that it's an extension that's going to last forever. Now very soon for say Allah Muna. Very soon these people are going to find out what are they going to find out man who are chatroom mccannon,
who really actually was worse in position shuttle mechanic, who was worst in standing, who was worst in position, what other awful gender and who was weaker in support, who had the worst position and who had the worst or the weakest support system? Who had the weakest support system. This is in contrast to when these people in yesterday's passage in iron number 73 when they said the disbelievers fall under the nikolina denominator or you will retain which from the two groups Hayden mccammon was an Olympian they challenged the believers. They said oh yeah, who's gonna be better? Which one do you think out of us to believers versus disbelievers? Who do you think is gonna be
Hayden McCollum and better in position better in status? Well, x, Luna dm, and more excellent and Company of elite people in influence and power? Who do you think is going to be in a better position? Answer you? Were the ones who have more power and more influence and more money here. Why wouldn't we be better off in the aka?
So Allah subhanaw taala respond to them by saying there's they're about to find out who's going to have the worst position who's going to be in the worst position? What other awful June then and who's going to have the weaker support system and even look at the difference of words that are used here? They said my phone macom because the macom in Arabic refers more to status, like status amongst the people because these people are vain. These people are vain and superficial people. So they're more concerned about concerned about social status. So they said macom these people are more concerned about being elite and having influence and power again that social status, so they said
Madigan was no daddy and from nada
right, but when a lot of responses
Allah says McCann. Because McCann means standing as well. But it doesn't mean like a social status. It means standing like where do you stand? Like when you self assess where do you stand? Where do I stand, in terms of morals and ethics. So let us is a more a more befitting word for a lot to us. And secondly, a lead doesn't use the word nadian, referring to influence in elite ism, and being in power in control, because that's what those people obsess about. Allah says Jin, Jin, literally refers to having like a support system we refer to like the infantry, like an army. The infantry is basically the legs of the army, right? They're the support system of the army. They're the legs of a
military unit, the infantry.
So john refers to an infantry as well in Arabic. So 11 doesn't talk about being elite. And being influential. It is, those things are for superficial people to worry about. A lot of talks about support system, and SubhanAllah. This is referring back to the early part of the cedaw, who was the support system of the prophets, a lot of them the abuse of yarns,
and the A chroma sunnova, booja. And the Hollywood elites, nothing a lot more. Don't get me wrong. They're very, very noble, prestigious people. But they were the more elites of society and they came to Islam later.
Some elite, some of them were very, very high caliber people did come to some early on,
like aboubaker in earth man, I'm not a fan of the Allahumma. But at the same time, who made up the core, the vast majority of the core, Bilal hubub, Amar,
these were the people who made up the core, ie, Khadija women and children, slaves sumiya. Yes, here, slaves and low people and poor people and women and children. They made up the core support system strong.
So they might have looked like they were weak in society. They were not very influential. They weren't rich. But talk about who would you want on your side?
You had rich, powerful, influential people like Abu Jahan, Abu lahab.
Leaders of their tribes, money like nobody's business, power and influence like nothing.
But were they reliable, dependable people? No, not in the least bit.
But look at Bilal, and hubub, Amar and Yasser, in Somalia, they might not have looked like a lot.
Poor people know people, women and children, slaves. They didn't seem like they were lot. But talk about being there talk about being steadfast, dependable, reliable. These two drag belong in the streets like an animal.
Like imagine taking a tire, strapping it onto the back of your car, and then is driving.
Imagine doing that to a tire. In fact, as an experiment, some time we're actually doing you might get pulled over by a cop. All right, but find some back roads. Alright, find some back roads. And then very seriously, take a tire. Take a box, take something a tire, okay, it's meant to be durable, tie it up to the back of your car and just drive
and see what happens to the tire.
And then imagine that being done to a human being being tied to horses and just with the horses run
and being dragged through the streets.
This 100 degree weather we have here. This doesn't even compare it's like 120 3040 degrees out there, where this was going on. But in 100 degree weather, take something tomorrow, take anything, take something like something made out of plastic.
Or take a take you know a piece some like a piece of meat or something like that. And just throw it out there in the sun. Like on concrete. Just throw it out there and see what happens to it.
See what happens to it. Imagine a human being being thrown on sand, a big rock being taken and put on his chest and being left in 140 degrees under the sun just being left out there.
Imagine what that human being must have been going through.
And then being so dependable and reliable.
That when he is finally told, this is tough enough, buddy, like the people that are torturing him say buddy, you having a good time.
And when he screams and yells
out of pain and anguish and torture and torment, and they say we'll let you go right now. We'll let you go right now. All you got to do all you have to do say no more Islam. No more Alon Omar Mohamed no more. Just how much you do that. We'll let you go
And he responds by saying, I hadn't I had, I hadn't. I hadn't
won a law one a law one a law when the law, you're not taking this away from me, you can't take this away from me.
Imagine a woman being tortured for weeks and weeks and weeks.
And after literally some human beings will is broken after torture. Then she's thrown down on the ground and a spear held on her body and said, leave it right now. Otherwise, this is it.
And she looks up at the spear and looks up at the guy holding disappearances. I showed her La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Abdullah and she's killed on the spot and her husband and her son who are tied up watching this. What is their response to this? Then they're turned to and said, Look what we just did. Same things gonna happen to the both of you leave some now. And their responses a shadow lie lie in the lower shadow under Muhammad Rasul. Imagine that level of human dependability, reliability, kebab, and a lot being dragged on hot burning coals, coals being lit on fire, and then he's thrown down on the ground, his legs are grabbed, and he's dragged on his back across these cold
rate across coals. burning hot red coals.
Katara de la mano says that I you know, remember the loved one who was never the subject of a lot of torture. He accepted Islam in the middle of the period of MK a little bit towards the end. All right. And then to because he was a Roman, he was never subjected to a lot of torture. But he says to here to get that Eamon like to get the feeling of what they went through in those early days. He says he would sit with people like hubbub every now and then regularly says Tell me about the old days. What do people went through? And he would listen to the stories and he told him the story. So one time I was raked across the coals and no matter the alarm said What happened to your back says
let me show you and he lifted his shirt and shoulders back in his back which is ravaged. He was scarred completely was hideous. And Amaro, the loved one who says I've never seen anything like that in my entire life. I've never seen anything like that.
That's what they went through. And at the end of all of it, a Chateau La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah. So Allah says, men who are shuttling McCann and what other awful gender new people want to talk nonsense. Keep talking your nonsense. Keep doing what you're doing. This is a legend giving you a little bit of an extension. And don't worry very soon we're about to find out who really is going to be in the worst position. And who's going to who had the weak support system. It was you guys, you're not only going to end up in a horrible place, but the people that you depended on the people for whose sake you did these things, the idols for whose sake you were willing to make all
these transgressions against Allah, we'll see how they sell you out. They're totally gonna sell you out. But the people who sacrifice independent for the sake of alignment are students a lot so they will be there for them. Allah will care for these people. Allah will take care of these people in yesterday's passage. We read not one before I'm talking about Jenna and paradise Allah will take care of his people. Well, how am I gonna sue loss, a lot of sin will be there for his people. He said on the Day of Judgment, look for me at three places.
I'll be moving around, I'll be going around, look for me at three places and I'll be there to help you out. I'll be there to take care of you. Place number one where the deeds are being scaled and weighed. Don't worry. If you start to kind of you need a little bit of an help a little bit of help. You need your good deed scale to just get a little bit heavier. Don't worry, I'll be there to look out for you. I'll help you out. I'll hook you up. Don't worry, you were there for me. You chose me over all the other nonsense that was around you in this dunya I'll be there for you.
Look for me, when you need to cross the bridge of set off that bridge we talked about yesterday. I'll be there for you to guide your way into Hades beautifully mentioned Rasulullah ceylonese will be there motivating and encouraging the believers. Go Go Go follow the news, follow the news and go go. He'll be literally imagine Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam cheering you on and motivating you. Come on, you can do this.
You're good people you'll be able to make your way through this. And then he says and then finally, I will be at the fountain of a co author. After you've dealt with all of the difficulties and all the journey of the Day of Judgment. I'll be there standing at the fountain of God so that when you start to feel thirsty, I'll be there to serve you sweet, unbelievable. eternally quenching water of Jenna and I will serve it to you in a cup with my own hands. Imagine also lots of lovely some standing there filling up cups and giving you cups of water. Here you go. Here's a drink of water at YouTube. Come on Come get a drink of water.
Imagine the love that He has for these people.
That's the support system I want to have but these people less has Patiala Muna they're about to find out they had a very obaku during the data week support system.
Allah says an EIN number
76 to explain what is a good support system like, Allah says way is evil law Who was he to law who Allah increases? He is increasing and will continue to increase.
Who does ally increase? And Medina the ones who in the dough, who are guided? How does he increase them who then the people who are guided meaning when guidance was presented to them, when the Quran was recited to them, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi Salaam, when they read about him when they learned about him when they when they heard about him, and they followed that guidance is that though they themselves followed that guidance, Allah says that people who follow the guidance when it's presented to them, yes, ie the law who, yes, he does he to whom Allahu Allah increases them and more in guidance. Allah increases them with more guidance, that when basic guidance is
presented to people, and they listen to it, and they follow it, and they live by it that gives them more and more and more guidance.
And that doesn't only mean in spiritual affairs and spiritual issues in spiritual matters, it doesn't just mean that when people are told about Islam and align the Quran in jnana, Hara, and they listened to it and they follow it, then Allah will make them and give them even more eemaan and Allah will allow them to do even more Ahmad, he definitely will do that. But it also means in their worldly affairs, that when people follow the guidance that is given to them in spiritual matters, guess what Allah, Allah has helped not only comes to them in their spiritual affairs, but even in their personal affairs, even in their business affairs, even in their family affairs. And we as
Muslims practically know this, following the guidance of the Quran and Islam and the Muslim and the rasuna Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't even help you in your family issues. Doesn't even help you in your family life. Absolutely. We've talked about in sort of medium, doesn't following the psalm even help you in your business and in your financial dealings. Absolutely, but our kin blessing,
it helps you in everything doesn't even help you be a better friend. Sure, because you learn about a slump. Doesn't it help you be a better neighbor? Absolutely. Islam teaches you to be a good neighbor. So there's a very practical application to this. But there's even something very divine about this in another place in the Quran.
In surah, tabon surah number 64 is number 11. Allah says woman, woman, human biLlahi woman, human biLlahi. And whosoever believes in a law firmly, yeah defiled by Allah will guide his heart. whosoever believes in Allah firmly, Allah will guide his heart. That's it. Now you're writing the hedaya train.
Now you're riding the train. It's all taken care of. It's all good to choose, right? Brother Murphy just signal to you. All right. So now you're writing the guidance train, everything's taken care of. You just got to stay on the train.
You just got to make sure that when the next stop comes when the next station comes, you don't go for like a little personal tour. You don't get lost. You don't say oh, that's really shiny out there. Let me go see what that is. Because while you're checking the shiny out there, and what you really find out is it was like a scrap of metal that does this light from the sun was just hitting in the right way. And you went out there because you saw something shiny where it was a mirage. The Quran talks about mirages. How like people who follow false hood, they're literally following after a mirage that their eyes are tricking them. The sun is playing tricks on their eyes, the heat is
messing with their head.
That makes sure you don't see something shiny out there and you wander off and you come back and you find out the train was gone. Now don't get distracted. Don't get distracted. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he tells us a dunya hulan how the rotten
a dunya one how the rotten dunya the worldly distractions they're sweet they're sweet is tasty
but I can tell you from personal experience everything sweets not good for you. All right.
Those of you who know me a little well you know exactly what I'm talking about. All right, everything sweets not good for you. Trust me. It's not good for you. All right. So that's not always good for you. It's the temptation pays good first time and then becomes a problem and then actually leads to more and more issues. And that's exactly spiritually that's the thing.
Indulge in a little bit of bad stuff. And might have this like instant little rush. Yeah.
But then guess what happens? You get addicted to it. And then guess what happens eventually brings your life crashing down.
It tears your life down.
Literally rips it apart. So sweet. The other eloquence of the prophets, a lot of them saying that dunya is sweet
because as an observation, things that are very, very sweet. spoil faster than things that are not sweet.
If you love some vegetables out
And then you left out like some
Muay Thai, right?
Some rasmalai. Right? Milk based like some sweet dish, right? What goes bad what spoils faster? The sweet stuff does?
sweet stuff does. All right. And so that's the other thing. It's sweet initially. But not only is it bad for you, but it also spoils very quickly. After a while then it's not so much fun anymore, but now you're addicted. So you just keep indulging, you just keep indulging because you're addicted. Now you got a problem now. And then the process is how the rotten that means it's really really green. Because in a in from, from a natural perspective,
green is the shiny stuff, right? Something being very green, and it's shiny. It's our equivalent in the culture that the prophets allottee some is addressing something being very green is our equivalent of something being shiny and sparkly bling bling.
Right? It's just really, really shiny and sparkly.
But then once you get up close, there's really not much to have past that point.
Right? What do you do then you Okay, you got something shiny and sparkly. What then? Then you need something even more shiny and sparkly, shiny and sparkly. Or you need something more Bling, bling bling, right, then you need three blinks. Right? So you need something bigger and better and shiny here. So you had nice fancy rims, and now you want the ones that turn. Right that spin. You need spinners now. And then what comes after that? I don't know. I'm afraid to know what comes after that. Right.
I didn't hear that. Okay. What does he do? Lago de la Vina todo Huda? So going back to what we were talking about number 76. So the people who follow the guidance along will increase them in more guidance, Allah will continue to guide them, Allah will keep increasing them in their guidance, both spiritually and also in their other aspects of their life as well as Ebola who led the annatto houda. And then Alice has well back to solid how to, well back to solid how to, this is referring to deeds, good deeds, and in the opinion of some of them have a zero. In opinion. When they do erodible Quran they basically do a grammatical dissection of the Quran. So they say that the most oof is
Madoff hear about the Athena Saudi hot. They're both safer. They're both adjectives. But the noun that is being described has been omitted, which is a
little bulkier to solid how to, but that's been omitted. And when you omit the most move is to show that the sefa is defining the most Oof. When you omit the noun itself and you leave the adjective, it's to demonstrate the fact because normally when you say nice house, what's the more important part of that statement? The House nice is just the adjective. It's just an extra bit of information about the house.
But when you say like, Man, that's nice. Instead of nice house. Now you're defining it as just being nice.
I guess dope. Right? So that's like, unbelievably awesome. Like it defines awesomeness, right? And so that's basically what when you omit the noun and you leave the adjective, it's like you're defining that thing through the adjective.
That that is the embodiment that is the realization of whatever the adjective is, here the adjective is bulky, bulky, means everlasting, remaining, long lasting everlasting. That which remains a solid heart is that which is good. Meaning these actions they define, being everlasting, they define being good.
So everlasting actions and good actions. Hey, don't interrupt because halona interrupt because they are better in the eyes in the sight of your Lord. They are better with your Lord.
So if your goal and your objective is to please Allah, then the thing that pleases Allah more than anything else is good deeds. Because good deeds are long lasting, or everlasting and good deeds are righteous in nature. They embody what is good about the heir to salejaw to Hayden and Rebecca, that is better near your Lord. So Robin, from what perspective so it means reward, it is better than reward.
So you'll find a lot more reward with your job, the more you invest yourself into it.
The more you invest yourself into doing good deeds that are everlasting and long lasting, and what are the things that are everlasting and long lasting, so to know when Allah subhanaw taala tells us marinda comedian Fred Meyer in the law he
married the Canadian federal Miranda law he bought that which you have that would state
with you which you invest in yourself in your own desires, yen for that will expire that will extinguish that'll go away. Well miring the monkey back, but that what you send the head to Allah barking that will remain for all of eternity that's everlasting ever remaining constantly in existence
All right, and that's we know little little manifestations of this they're spread out all throughout the collection of a hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells us saying once upon Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah Allahu Akbar one of these What do you get you get a Come on somebody anybody? You get a tree and Jenna is a tree and Gemma ever gonna die or go away or cease to exist? No. One somehow everybody say Subhana Allah. Boom Drea and Jenna and Ethan Bahati tells us that what is history and gentlemen like that Ethan Bahati tells us no, yes, evil rocky movie literally amiata. I'm in law, that if a person was to ride a horse for 100 years, you will not be able to cross
through what is the shade of this tree?
What is simply the shade of the tree that a person could start, go start riding a horse and ride nonstop continuously for 100 years, and you will not be able to cross the shade of the tree?
Say 100 in a boon to trees and Jenna. That's how we do. All right. So this is what it's talking about. Well, basically how to solve how to hate on anger because Robin, it's much better near your Lord in terms of its reward. Well, hey, Ron Mara done. And it's better in consequences. Well, it's better in consequences well,
meaning what is just the outcome of doing something good.
Because the lab is reward we all understand, of course, doing suffered the oxidize more agile in reward and throw up. But what gets the person at the end of the day? What is that even for a Muslim or a believer? What's that one last little thing that puts that doubt in your mind? It's a person where he's about to hear in the now. But this dunya what are the consequences in dunya?
If I use all my time, or all my energy or all my money for Africa, what's going to happen to me here?
So that's a one little thing that nags at the person that just leaves a little bit of hesitation within the person. Allah says this is even better in terms of consequence, because Allah tells us in the Quran, in certain men Amina Solomon Dekker in our men, whosoever does good deeds, righteous deeds, whether they're male or female, what what movement and they are believers follow know he Anna, who hyah Tampa, we most definitely will give them a beautiful, appealing life. Give them an amazing, unbelievable wonderful life. Even in this dunya they'll fare better.
Though they'll fare better, they'll find peace and tranquility and comfort and love the end of the suit. I don't want to get ahead of ourselves. But the end of the pseudo talks about this in the Medina Mr. Mousavi had said you know, wooden
people who do good deeds will find we will come to will come to realize will find love from the people around them. They'll be loved. They'll be loved by people. And that's what people feed off of. That's the most basic human need is love.
And a lot give puts love in the hearts of other people. And the law gives love to those people, not just from him, but also from other people around him. Whoever does good deeds, makes a commitment to Allah. And we know that famous Hadith of the prophets a lot. He said when Allah loves someone, he tells you believes you breed I love him, you love him, and simply tells the angels I love that person. Allah, Allah loves that person, I love him. So therefore you all love him. And then the announcement is brought down to the inhabitants of the earth as well. Allah loves this person, God loves this person, the inhabitants of the heavens of this person, all of you love that person.
And so that's what it's talking about. Well, Hayden metoden the other last little note I'd like to add about this is number 76.
The Mufasa don't comment
that this is not just talking about just doing good. But this is talking about a higher caliber of believer that if you look back, because remember, you have to place it within the context. If you look back at it number 72. If you look back at it, number 72 Allah says through my own agenda, Dena taco,
sama, Nigella Dena taco, Allah has already promised that the people of taqwa God consciousness alone will save them. Allah will rescue them and save them from any type of harm and punishment and fear. So now that Ally's mentioning of a more greater reward, they say that this is further motivation. So once a person qualifies a person has reached that level of having that God consciousness that basic awareness of a law
where the eldest person qualifies to being qualified for the job. This person qualifies for being saved by Allah. Now our last panel, Mattel is saying, Don't stand. Don't stay content there, but raise your level. Now.
Continue to follow the guidance that is given to you and what will happen Allah will give you more guidance. And when Allah gives you more guidance and keep following that guidance that Allah will give you more guidance and when you follow that guidance, Allah will give you more guidance. One just keep keep climbing those steps. And as you keep climbing those steps what happens Hey, don't interrupt because awaba Hi, Ron Murat done. You keep on climbing that ladder and you keep getting closer and closer and closer to a block.
Shallow we'll go ahead and stop here. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to become closer to Him and to follow the guidance from Allah subhanaw taala inshallah, we'll start from Isaiah number 77 tomorrow. See it all kind of works out we did a lot one day we got a little bit done today and hummed into horrible anime does not come along.
