Bali hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa rahmatullah wa salatu salam ala ZD, mursaleen wa Allah he was actually he was meant to be a homie sending Elijah Medina.
In the previous session, we were discussing the concluding with Isaiah number 70.
where Allah subhanaw taala
talks about or rather in the last few items that we discussed the last panel hotel that talks about their attitude towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and towards the Quran in the message that they're being called to. And some of the accusations that they make in the last panel atella deconstructs a lot of their accusations and a lot of the baseless arguments that they're making, that whether they're it's simply due to their arrogance, they don't even listen, let alone ponder and reflect on what the Quran is saying. They're stuck on the fact that Well, our forefathers didn't believe this. So how can we, the they have the audacity to claim as if the prophets Alavi some, some
stranger that showed up out of nowhere, when they know him very well, they go as far as making the ridiculous accusation and slander of the profits allottee something insane or crazy? And Allah subhanaw taala exposes them by saying that in reality, they just don't want to hear or deal with the truth. So you're not in number 71 The law says, Well, we have a VA home loan officer that is similar to an older woman fee him but Athena whom basically him for whom and decree him What are you doing? Very, very powerful. Let's find out what a translation says. But if the truth were in accordance with their desires, the heavens, the earth, and everyone in them would disintegrate. We have brought
them their reminder and they turn away from it. So there's quite a few things to process here. First and foremost, Allah subhanaw taala says, the first part of the ISS, if the truth whenever we talk about
if the truth was to follow their desires, as the translator said, if the truth was in accordance with their desires, if the truth were to follow their desires, and that's very interesting in the translations, really
Not reflecting one particular aspect of it. That's the very first thing I want to talk about. Before I get into the discussion. That's some of the classical
you know, exegete some of the classical amorphous, you know, one of the Quran have about the concept and the word, hukou and what exactly it makes reference to, first and foremost very interesting. He didn't say, you know, as a translation, my kind of give the impression that if the truth was in accordance with their desires, when O'Connell Haku, misled him, or what was in him, that if the truth was in accordance with their desires, that's not what the ISS, the ISS, what are we about Haku Aqua home, that if the truth were to follow their desires, and the reason why that's very interesting is that it's about is an action. It is an active description of following the desires.
So what that naturally implies is that if the truth were to follow their desires, will desires our ever changing, desires are constantly changing, right? So that would mean that there would in reality be no truth. There'd be no reality there'd be no truth, right we talked about earlier.
In the roots of the word refers to stability, and consistency, that consistency would be gone, that stability would be gone, and is there no consistency and stability, you don't call that a hammock in Arabic. So no longer would be reality and truth, because it'd be in accordance with desires. So it always be evolving, it'd be following the ebbs and flows of desire, right. And so that in and of itself would be very problematic and exposes this fact, that as human beings, just like physically, emotionally, psychologically, granted, you know, ups and downs are a part of the human condition, but at the same time, physically, emotionally, psychologically, we do crave a certain amount of
stability, there has to be some type of core, and when that stability in that core, and that consistency is gone, that is what basically throws a human being into the that's what throws the human being into flux. And that's what creates, you know, the the paranoia and the panic and the anxiety within the human being. But the human human being craves, at least at the core of things, as a foundation craves that stability and spiritually, that stability is provided by the truth which is the Quran, which is Islam, which is the religion right so that's the first thing I like supposes your which is very powerful. Secondly, what what's exactly meant by here, now, we can simply
translate it as truth, but some of them who first said who dug a little bit deeper, and really explored this particular concept that what's meant here by and Huck,
and many of them have assumed from Razi and good to be and others, even our shoot, and many, many others have really discussed this particular concept. And one of the positions or the opinions is that unhealth is one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala. And Huck is one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala. Right, he's referred to as Al Huck within the Quran itself, right.
So, the first interpretation of this is that it's referring to Allah, that if Allah subhanaw taala was to follow their desires, meaning if Allah would legislate in accordance with the desires of the people left for say, that is similar to another woman feeling that the heavens the earth, and everyone inside of them would completely be destroyed. Right? fussa it would be corrupted, it'd be destroyed. Right? And Allah subhana wa tada explains his concept and so little MBR No, kind of fee him Ali Hassan al Allahu la casa de, because ultimately, part of being God being the authority and the divine authority, the divine power, is the fact that legislation comes from him. But if he's
legislating based on someone or something else, right, that basically means now God's authority has dissipated or been distributed. And if that's the case, and Allah has already told us what the consequence and the outcome of that is, and that is the simple fact that that would wreak havoc on the heavens and the earth, the creation will not survive that that instability. Right. So that's the first interpretation of it. The second thing, of course, is the fact that it's referring to the Quran
that it would wreak havoc on the heavens and the earth and everyone within because of that instability again, that it would cause and the Quran is of course, you know, even the legislation and the law from a lion the Quran, Allah talks about this within the Quran, Lola, that if allow us to listen to them, they said lowland Rosina hodel Carano, Allah Ragini minakari attaining a lien, Allah Raja Lena v Min minakari. Athena, Alhaji minakari Athena, I think that if they had their way they would have chosen the fact that this message and Prophethood would have been bestowed upon just the most politically influential individual from one of the two big cities macabre thoughts and they
were most of them of us. They don't say they were talking about Abu Jamal
Boom was through the photography, the leader of thought if that they would have just said, Okay, yeah, Prophet it should be given to this man. Why? Just because he's politically intimidating and politically a little bit more influential, but what do we know about the character of these individuals, especially Abu Jad? Right, it's it's completely been exposed within the CETA. And this was a very, very corrupt individual, then can you imagine if that type of trust would have been placed in the hands of that type of a man? So they would they would have no concern for what effect that would have on the people, Allah says, similar topic. Right? That if think about the concept
that if they were responsible for distributing the mercy of your Lord,
right, who they would be so that mercy upon,
right below the Allahu taala and who said that if it was up to these people, I would have been last in line for anything good.
Right. So would they, how would they distribute the mercy of Allah pulo ungentlemanly, una casa in aroma therapy, septum Hachette an info in Surah 17 to 100. Allah says that say to them, that if you were in charge of distributing the treasures of mercy, the treasures of the mercy of my Lord, like if you were in charge of distributing the mercy of Allah, either lungs or to hospital, in fact, that human beings by nature are just so covetous, and they're so miserly and paranoid that you would have just held the mercy back from everyone afraid that it would run out. Right But a lot of showers is mercy upon everyone in anyone. Um, Laguna, Cebu, Mina Mulkey VEDA, la tuna, Santa Clara, in Surah,
Nisa, sort of for if 53 Allah says that if they would have had any type of a say, in the power in the control of Allah, they wouldn't give people even a drop.
They wouldn't have given people anything. Right. So the healthcare also refers to right the governance in the law from Allah subhanaw taala.
Allah subhanaw taala, then goes on to say, but let's say now whom basically him for whom I'm speaking to him, What are they doing? Allah subhanaw taala says, rather, we have given them we have bestowed upon them we have granted them, but let's say now whom basically him
now this is a very interesting construction.
Allah says that we have bestowed upon them their remembrance, they're mentioned.
Now, what does that exactly mean? The word Vicodin, right? Is the mustard form the base form. So it has multiple layers and multiple meanings. One meaning of Vicodin is that we have given them that which is beneficial to them that which reminds them, for whom I'm thinking of him, what are they doing, they just don't want to be reminded. They're the ones deliberately unintentionally turning away from what is beneficial for them, and the reminder for them. So that's one particular meaning of it. And that's what ignore Ibis radi Allahu taala and Houma Monaco to be mentioned that even Abbas said that be by and unhappy with victory mala hooby Haji to minimally deem that by reminding
them what is good and what is beneficial for them and what they are in need of spiritually so it's a reminder a reminder for them but others similarly says that be mad at home fee the crew Sahabi him or ecobee him right that it as a reminder of what is the outcome of good and what is the outcome of bad again a reminder right? But there's another meaning of when you create this construction basically him there reminder that has another meaning another another implication as well. And as should be and soufiane
Allahu taala say be Murphy he shot for homework.
And this is alluded to in sort of Columbia surah number 21, as well it says la De Anza La La comme Kitab. And Fie the croco. Recall
that the same two meanings imply there that we have most definitely sent down to you We have revealed to you a book in which is a reminder for you. It's beneficial for you but it also means in its is your mention. And what's meant by that in the Arabic language your mention is that this is an opportunity for you to solidify your place in history.
This is an opportunity for you to leave a legacy. Who did I just quote I just quoted Abdullah bin bass. Why did I just quote up the Lebanon bus? Because he was one of those people that met the prophets. A lot of them heard the Quran being recited, saw the Quran being sent down and being revealed, believed in it, listened to it, reflected on it, sat there learned it and taught it on forward and implemented and realize it within his life. And 1400 years later, we're still talking about Abdullah bin abdus. Salam was telling them that we're in fact putting you in a very advantageous position.
This is an opportunity for you to solidify your place in history.
leave a legacy to be a benefit to countless generations of people that will come after you. It's good for you, it's an opportunity for you. But unless it's Bella Tina, who basically we gave them the ultimate opportunity, but lumen de Monaco, but rather, they themselves would rather walk away from this opportunity for grammatically monotone. Rather, they themselves deliberately are walking away from this opportunity. So who do they have to blame? But themselves? Right, so this is a little bit of that accountability and responsibility that everybody has to take for themselves in their actions. And I in number 72, Allah subhanaw taala continues the deconstruction of any type of
paranoia that they might have about the prophets allottee some So first of all, and I in 71, it's been said, Well, why can't the religion just be a little bit more accommodating of what we want to do where Allah says that, you know, if we were to accommodate what you want, that'd be bad for you. And then secondly, we're not subjugating you, we're honoring you. But you're not interested in that. And I number 72 Allah says, aloha Jen, for herradura Becca Hayden, Well, hello hydrojetting translation says do you owe profit? Ask them for any payment. Your Lourdes is the best payment. He is the best of providers. So I say now I'm test Allahu Mahajan.
What is the meaning of courage Herges? So as the scholars of the language explains a machete and a blomidon, Allah and many others explain this particular term alarge. It says Mata Bharata Be it basically refers to some type of extra payment that's made. And then the next word is courage, courage and courage. Right? They sound very similar, but there's a difference of the elephant in the middle. If you look at it, courage is mallozzi muka mallozzi maka da, da, da. Right that which is mandatory on you to give, and in fact, even legally speaking, illegally speaking and Fiq, right. In Islamic law and Islamic jurisprudence, we have an issue called courage. And courage is basically
like a land tax that is paid land that is taxed. So that's called carajo. Courage means that which is mandatory to give kind of like a mandatory tax, right, but 100 Gen is something more given on top of that.
And so it's very interesting to think of this.
Are you asking them for any type of a payment on top? And the reason why uses the word part of the wisdom of why uses the word for extra payment, is again, because the religion might require you to give something because if you say that the religion won't require you to give anything at all, then what happens is second that they're told to give the cuts, then they're going to show up. Oh, I thought you said we don't have to give anything. Remember you have to give, but that this much is also clarified. You don't give to the messenger and that's why again, in the Divine Wisdom, what did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tell us? He said, it is impermissible haraam.
Right very strong word. It is impermissible haraam for the prophets, a lot of them or any of his family members to receive from charity funds.
They are not allowed to receive from charity. Zakat is not permissible for the profits of him or his family members. Right, as was really demonstrated, as well, with the interaction of Solomon and fantasy, or the Allahu taala. I knew that that was one of the tests. Right? That the prophets of the last times when you go and give him charity, that he will distribute it amongst those who are in need of it, but he himself will not take any of it for him or his family. And that's exactly what the prophets allottee some did.
Right? In fact, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so particular so strict about this, listen to this again, I'm going to kind of divulge a bit but bear with me.
We know the prophets a lot he seems character how loving how kind, how affectionate how, you know, generous and, you know, loving he was right, that especially with children, and then especially with, you know, his own children, how affectionate he was right, that hasn't her saying that the Allahu taala Anima could walk into the masjid and disrupt the hookah and the profits a lot. He would step down from the member, pick them up, kiss them, hug them smile, and make them feel better suit them and calm them in the middle of German football.
Right? Can you imagine if your mom did that today? We'd fire him on the spot. Right? We wouldn't even let him lead prayer. No, you know, leading prayer, right? He doesn't know the rules of Juma right that's what we would say May Allah forgive us. But
the prophets a lot he said um, was so affectionate
Then in the middle of the Hooda is accommodating them. He's consoling them. Right? That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam goes into Judah and they climb on his back and the prophets allottee some stays Institute for an extended period of time. Why I didn't want to mess up their playtime.
I didn't want to mess up their playtime
that's how loving and affectionate the prophets Allah The sun was.
But the prophets a lot of a sudden is walking with Hassan, or the Allahu taala and his grandson.
And he's a boy six, seven years old. He narrates his he remembers this. He says, we were walking and as we were walking outside the masjid, there were the dates that were collected for zakat. It was the cat fund dates were being collected to be distributed amongst support.
And what does the child do when they see food or something? They go into grab it, that's what a child does. Right? So has another Allahu taala. And who goes and picks up a date.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam takes it out of his hand. Can you imagine that?
Have you done that to your kid, or to a child and like it's heartbreaking,
right? But it takes it out of his hand. And he puts it back into the pile. And then he's teaching his grandson. Because this is so important.
That we cannot take from this.
We can't eat from this. I'll get you some data at home but that you're my family. We can't touch that.
Right so the Prophet of Allah so what I'm trying to explain is Allah uses the word hug, Jen, which is extra, like I'm not asking for you something on top for me, but a little you know, grease, grease my palm a little. That's no, no.
But on top of that, the reason why I use that word 101 which means extra, because the religion might require you to give something when levena homeland security for a loan.
Right I play musala I to soccer you have to give charity, it's a part of your spiritual you know, exercise.
But even within that, Allah put so much strain
upon the profit some of the some of the family of the profits, a lot of them that they it is haram for them to touch. They are not allowed to interact with it at all.
are you asking them for something on top?
And then Allah subhanaw taala says for her Raja Rebecca,
where your Lord has provided is better. That tells him My Lord directly provides for me I don't need what you have. Well, hadal Raja teen, he is the best of those who could ever have the ability to sustain. And we talked about the way to understand this, right? Allah is the only rogic alleged the only one who sustains so when the meaning of this is that it's using the word rogic in the very literal sense. There's anyone who feeds at somebody else. Right, but more so another way to understand is that it's hypothetically saying even if anybody else would have ever had the ability to say nobody would be a better provider than Allah subhanaw taala. Right. And so as I was
mentioning before that, yes, the religion might require you to give something but even then in the Quran, rajai Lisa le hakuba Mani cam Hakuna illumine Lisa 11 mushroom that you're asked to give something but it's specifically for the one who needs it.
And yet sama when Misaki will Pokhara in the Masada cottolin sakara Well, masakan right, that is for the poor and the needy, for the orphans, it's for the destitute. It's for them the Prophet, the messenger doesn't touch it. Not even with a 10 foot pole buildmaster ultracalming ajilon for who Allah? Allah, Allah Allah that I haven't asked you in sort of Sabah right last one is number 47 Allah tells the prophets a lot of them to say masala to come in again. I have not asked you for any type of recompense or reward for whoever that is it's all for you. It's for your own good in Nigeria Allah Allah Allah my reward is from Allah. Will my family human mama and Freeman sudra saw the I 86
again Allah tells the prophets a lot he's I'm saying I do not ask you upon this. This message that I'm sharing with you any type of reward or recompense or my enemy now.
I will not obligate you in the least bit to provide anything for me
in sort of to shoot are sort of 42 i a 23 Hola. Hola. como de jour en el El Moussa? Tofino corba is about as clear as it gets a lot of total profits, a lot of something I will never ever ask you for any type of material reward nothing. In our data filter bar, all I'm ever going to ask you to do is to be good to your own family members.
Yeah, I'll tell you to spend money but not on me on your family.
spend money on your children spend money on your family members, I don't want nothing that you have.
And insanity has seen sort of 36 is 20 and 21. It talks about that man that came from the outskirts of town to provide support for the profits, the mess, the profits who had been sent, and he says it is Allah kamatera follow these people who don't ask you for anything in return. Well, who wants to do and and they are rightly guided by Allah. So this is another deconstruction. Oh, maybe he's got some ulterior motive. He's got some other agenda. He's got some secret plan. He's trying to capitalize on this or that or that or this? No, no, no, no. This is all your paranoia. It's completely unfounded. It's completely baseless and preposterous and ridiculous. Now, in ismb, three,
Allah says, What in Nicoletta romila Serato. Something. So after saying what you do not do, right, you're not crazy. You're not asking anything in exchange or return. But what are you doing is 73. We're in Nicoletta, the romila serrato. Supreme, you call them to a straight path. We're in Mecca, and most definitely you let their own home without a doubt, are constantly calling them. Ilan said Optimus, akin to a straight path. And we haven't talked about the concept of the straight path. But again, Mr. Theme refers to a few different things. Muslim is a very interesting word for straights, where it doesn't just simply mean straight, it has three meanings at the very least that we can talk
about. Your first is something being straight, it refers to something being consistent. And it also refers to something more standing up than rather straight, like in a in a linear fashion more so like vertical straight.
And so there's three concepts, at the very least kind of merged into here that at least I'll talk about straight. Right. And of course, they talk about it right, the shortest distance between two points in a straight line is is the best, the fastest. And the quickest way for you to reach Allah subhana wa tada to reach salvation, to find success. Number two, consistency
that this path won't fail you. And that's why a lot of times Allah subhanaw taala, when he talks about the straight path, he says, Is it optimal stepping upon the straight path.
Because this path is so consistent, it has no turns, it has no sharp turns that has no, you know, areas where you have to worry about it where you have to get off or you have to get back on where you have to worry about connecting where you have to worry about switching nothing like that. You just get on and then you're on for the ride.
All you have to do is have the foresight, and have the conviction to just get on. That's it. It'll take you the rest of the way.
You just have to take that first step you just have to get on board.
And third thing is instead of just being straight, like in a linear fashion is talking about it being upright, because it will elevate you.
It will elevate your existence. It's good for you.
We're in Nicoletta the room Illa Serato stuffing
and then the last part of ajala. Of course Allah subhanaw taala tells the prophets a lot he some other places in the Quran as well in Surah to hedge is number 2022 I in number 67 Allah subhanho wa Taala says whether or not whether you are a beggar in Allah, Allah Buddha, Mr. King, that call to your Lord in your master because most definitely you are upon a guidance that again, is straight and upright. When you're in Arabic, Allah Allahu de mystifying Allah subhanho wa Taala says to the prophets a lot of the time what is done is Elijah is anjanette illega What Arabic Allah coonan Amina machine surah Casa Surah 2887 Allah says that do not
do not be diluted, don't be derailed, don't be distracted from the they should not block you from the signs of Allah subhanaw taala after they have come down to you rather you call them to your Lord and Master and never be from amongst those who associate partners to Allah, phonies. alika further who was second commandment Surah 2424 sudo to shooter or excuse me, sort of 4042 she's me, I'm all over the place. sudo 42 is 15 so to shoot all Allah subhanaw taala says funny Danica and in accordance with that for the call for stocking come out and stay consistent as you have been commanded to do. odo illa sabini Robbie Kabila Hekmati will know a little Hashanah in Surah Surah 16
i 125. Allah says, Call to the path of your Lord your master Allah with wisdom, and with a beautiful reminder, waiting Nicoletta oho Mila Serato Musa team, as you already know, we're in Nicoletta de la serata moussaka that most definitely you are guiding to the streets.
path fatawa Allah in the kernel houchen movie that rely upon a lot because most definitely you are upon the clear and evident truth. So much Allah, Allah Sharia terminal
we have given you the ultimate form of legislation and law, so follow it, yet we are the aka sirata Misaki man and inshallah, Allah tells the prophets, a lot of them that you, he is guiding you up to the straight path upon the straight path by means of the straight path, right, so you stay on the course that you have been put on.
In the next ayah
I am number 74 Allah says we're in the loving ally, minable irati irati Lana kebon. Again, talking about that path, Allah says in the translation rather says, and those who do not believe in the hereafter turn away from that path. Those who do don't believe in the hereafter they turn away from that path. So unless part of what Allah is saying that, and this is a very interesting, you know, argument that's being made here, that's following the law in the legislation. We had a conversation earlier today in the q&a, where we kind of we talked about this. But for everyone's benefit, I'll reiterate very briefly, that a lot of times the law and the legislation is something that people
And sometimes we might end up confused because of people's questioning of the law and the legislation, why can't we do this? Why can't we do that? Why is this not permissible? Why is that not allowed? Why is this allowed versus that not being allowed, and so on and so forth? What we have to understand, there's a lot of area for discussion and exploration about the wisdom of God's legislation, what Allah has ordained. But what we have to ultimately understand is that the key that really unlocks understanding and really coming to terms coming to peace with what Allah has legislated, because maybe we can understand, and maybe we don't understand right now. But there is
some wisdom and unless legislation that will open itself up to us, you know, further down the road.
Maybe we haven't yet reached a point where we can understand or appreciate what Allah has legislated.
But compliance is still something that's required of us whether right now I grasp this or not, right? Again, just a very rudimentary, you know, example.
You know, there might be an issue with wine or alcohol. Allah has made it impermissible, it is hot on.
So maybe somebody doesn't, has not yet understood exactly why they don't see. Right, the wisdom in that legislation. They personally do not come in Islam, though compliance with that is still required.
It's still impermissible. whether that person right now understands why it's impermissible or not. It's still impermissible because Allah said so.
Right? Well, the thing that will give you the strength and the conviction,
to live by what Allah has ordained, whether you understand it or not, is whether or not you first and foremost have firm belief and conviction in the life of the hereafter.
Because if you believe in the life of the Hereafter, then what you understand is that Allah subhanaw taala, has mandated certain things, Allah has made certain things in permissible. And ultimately, Allah subhanaw taala will reward me for being compliant with what Allah has required of me.
And that reward is something that I look forward to that I, you know, and in anticipation of, that I know is coming my way. So if I ended up having to make a temporary, quote, unquote, sacrifice,
it's okay. It's all good.
Right? When, let's say you're studying for an exam,
right? That maybe what you at least perceived like your future hinges upon.
Right, your career hinges on how you do on this exam.
Or maybe you're working on a project that again, has a huge promotion, or some type of bonus involved in it. There's some reward and what ends up happening in the course of preparing for that exam or working on that project. Sleep is out the door. Right food is out the door, your personal well being and health, forget about it. Sometimes even family, you know, you tell the family Listen, I'm just not going to see you for a week. Right? I got to do this.
Why? Because you have such conviction and faith and belief in anticipation of that reward.
Right that it's all worth the sacrifice. Well, the life of the Hereafter is the ultimate reward.
And what type of sacrifice do you think is worthy of the ultimate reward? At least a very substantial sacrifice
a significant amount of sacrifice
which dare I say, Allah does not even require of us
in when you compare it and contrast it to what awaits
and so that's what I was saying when the Latina like you mean with a black hero, that with those people who specifically just do not believe in the life of the hereafter on this Siddharth Ilana Ki Moon,
they turn away from the path
because it's now it's I mean, it's impossible even logically you think about it if there's no reward. Why am I you know, if there's no you know, big promotion or bonus then why am I not sleeping and not eating and not going home? What points? Right, what's the point of all this? So then, of course, they turn away from the path not to justify it, but it's just stating it as a fact. Then I keep doing this, this word nakaba. The root lelaki boon is very interesting word that's used here. In this particular Ayah nakaba.
The, some of the scholars of the language day explained him I'm going to be states that unlikeable Anita at Yakubu coupon either Allahu Allahu wa Allah Allah at woman who Nikita tiddly, who is alimta, Sakina. Allah Magellan will shadow Lee and Nakba. He says that a neck refers to going away from the path and diverting to something else. And from this, when a wind kind of swirls when a wind, like a wind doesn't have like a particular current, or a direction, but it's like swirling winds. And that's, that's the worst type of wind. And arrows would refer to that type of wind as neck.
Neck, but that's not following the current it's not following a pattern. Right? swirling winds, right? And so that's what nicob refers to, that is just spinning around. And so by means of using this word, Allah subhanaw taala also alludes to something very profound, that they do not do they just turn away from the path or get off the path, get off the rails, as we say, they go off the rails, but they just start to spin out of control.
These fishtailing they're spinning out of control, the world starts to spin out of control, nothing makes any sense anymore.
And so they were trying to make sense of things. But what they do is end up spinning themselves out and nothing makes any sense anymore. And then Subhana Allah May Allah protect us all. Allah subhanho wa Taala says anakee boon in the nominal form as a noun as an ism.
And they will continue to spin out of control so much so that even the in the life of the Hereafter, they'll just be spinning out of control. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us all.
In it, number 75. Allah subhanaw taala says hello Rahim. Nahum waka chef llama be human Buddha led up to me anemia Mohan because now a large part of what Allah is basically what he has said is they will be held accountable for these choices and these decisions. But now Allah subhanaw taala says the translation of which is, even if we were to show them mercy and relieve them of distress, they would blindly persist in their transgression. This is talking about both in the life of this world and life in the hereafter. The Quran corroborates both meanings that are lying below him now. If we were to have even if we were to have mercy upon them, has Allah not already had mercy upon them by
granting them their existence, giving them providing for them taking care of them?
And on and on and on? Right But Allah saying okay, even if we were tapping more mercy upon them, what kashia FNA Kashif in the Arabic language means to remove to open, and we were to remove from them might be human children might be him, men during that which has fallen upon them from adversity and difficulty. Let juvie toliet anaemia moon, they would still persist in their, you know, in their transgression, they would push forward in their transgression. Another translated translator says they would still persist in their insolent transgression wandering blindly. Right very, very powerful. And Allah subhanaw taala talks about this multiple places in the Quran in surah, kill and
fall is number 23. Allah subhanaw taala says Willow alim Allah houfy him Hydra Allah Asma Allah. If Allah knew that they would actually listen then Allah wouldn't make them listen, when I smile.
But right now as it stands, if Allah made them, Listen, Make them hear what is being said.
forced it like shoved down their throats a smile,
they would still turn away and continue to ignore it. And sort of Jelena am I 27 through 29. Allah says one oh Tara is looking for early enough that if you can only just see that when they will be placed at the edge of the fire of hell, scary stuff that they'll be made to line up right here at the brink at the edge of the fire of hell, for callooh yarlington neuron do they will say, Oh, we messed up big time, if we could just be given another chance returned back to the life of the world. Whenever you can, it will be it rabina we would never reject and call false the signs of our master in our Lord What a cool nominal meaning and we will be from amongst those who believed
but but Allah who McCann who you fool them in public, but you know what would happen?
You it would resurface.
The problems that they had initially would just resurface. What I would do la doula man who and who.
But if they were given another chance, they would go back and just do the same things over again.
Because that desire for for guidance has to come from within that sincerity that we've been talking about. In Natasha, Alina, in the coma. Instead of the Hon. I have 15 Allah says that we remove the punishment a little bit. And what happens in the coma, you go right back to things that even in the life of this world, when they would sometimes push the the, you know things way too far. They would take things way too far. And unless Allah would afflict them with something, what would they do? They go right back to it.
There's a really sad incident in the life of the prophets a lot. He said
a man he comes and participates in the battle on the wrong side comes to fight against Muslims in the battle the battle and actively participates. He's amongst the prisoners of war captured
and brought to the profits a lot he said
any bags and he pleads any Christ Oh, please, please. This happened down up and down up into
the profits a lot. He said and he says I don't have ransom. I don't have anyone to vouch for me. I can't really do anything for you.
But the profits or licenses Okay, I'll release you
on your own accord of your own accord. I'll just release you go back. Free Herzberg. You just need to promise to me that you won't fight. Not even become Muslim.
That has to be your decision. But Just promise me that you'll be neutral. You won't just come fight again. And what happens in the Battle of demand comes back to fight against Muslims again.
right so in that case, you can either be in a coma you do
lead up to him Yama, Yama, hoon. Allah subhanaw taala led up to him Yama,
Yama Hoon in the Arabic language. The scholars are more fussy, don't.
Some of them quote that we'll call about an enemy and who
will anymore and Allahu taala that Allah who refers to being spiritually blind, Yama Hoon, right. So Allah says, Let you they would persist fetal yamim in their headstrong ness in their transgression, Yama Hoon wandering blindly. They would just go right back to their
unfortunate ways. Instead of Juno's, Allah subhanho wa Taala says we must sell in Santa
a guru, that when the human being is lightly touched by a little bit of difficulty, Donna, he calls out to us the Giambi. He carried an O party man laying down, sitting, sending crying screaming for lambda consciousness. Schaffner. Dora, who Allah says when we removed from him, the little bit of difficulty that was put on him mamre he just walked right off. It's very interesting. Allah describes modernica una casa who he walks right off. Like you don't have the mental image of somebody just kind of strolling along whistling without our care in the world do to do to do monitoring.
As if nothing ever happened. no difficulty ever gained five minutes ago. He wasn't sitting there crying his eyes out. Oh, please, please.
As soon as is lifted away from Do not worry in the world doesn't care. I G, right. So bizarre. Right and this is what I lost.
Rotella described here
is 76 Allah says Allah,
that our lives not saying this is not theoretical Subhana Allah, this is not theoretical and lessons
from a second
translation says, We have already afflicted them, we have already afflicted them.
Right another translations is in very in very truly we grip them with torments, as a forewarning against their unbelief.
But Allah says yet they did not submit to their Lord, they will never humble themselves.
Right? Allah says we're not gonna humble adapt. We've tried them, we've tested them. We've put different types of punishment upon them.
But what was the outcome of that and again, all of these different you know, what were those possible different types of punishments that alleged alluding to referring to here? Well, it varies so many different things in person in their personal lives. Maybe things that they've seen other people go through overall community of course if it was talking about the people of Makkah, right we talked about the famine that came upon them the Battle of blood that they will deal with and the list goes on and on.
That will not be added for Mr cannula by him. It's the cannula by him is takana Yes, Aquino in the Arabic language refers to is to kind of learn how to follow elimine kanemoto Harrigan Hara cotton shaden, from mahadasha sakinah.
It refers to somebody being in turbulence, and then just calming down.
And some of the scholars also explained that his tukana in the Arabic language refers to more of like an inner peace from a second, they did not internally make peace with their Lord with their master Allah. They didn't. It's in the past tense. Well, my daughter, our own, and then Allah says in the present and future tense, nor will they ever humbled themselves, yet to better our own. And tabara is more of like a physical display of the humility that somebody feels inside.
So they will never humble themselves, because they have not yet internally made peace with the law. So they will never put their head on the ground in front of a law, they will never sprint their hands like this in front of a law. They will never beg and cry and plead before a law because they haven't internally made peace. And
Zimmer actually asks the question, that why is this the canula be him in the past tense, and yet other our own in the present tense. And the Quranic nuance here in the language is that in order to really live a life of humility, where your life demonstrates the humility that you have, that you feel before Allah subhanaw taala you It requires making that inner peace with alone, and they have not made the inner peace that's why they will never humble themselves.
And that's why the difference between the past tense and the present tense linguistically within this ayah This is what we call an era jaswal Sufi villupuram that this is what the Quranic nuance linguistically that you can pick up when you study stuff.
Random takbeer guy missed his cue. All right.
All right. I have somebody seven
I 77 Hector either. fatahna aleikum babinda DaVinci didn't even see him of listen. A translation says until we open the gates to severe torment for them, then they will be plunged into utter despair.
Allah subhanaw taala says
well maggots are better our own
that they will not humble themselves. Hatter until Fatah, Allah him bobbin until we open upon them bobbin a door that either been shrouded in that has that contains a very very severe punishment is Alfie Mobley soon. But then that will plunge them home fee in its they will be you know, their faith will be Mobley soon oblasts complete and utter despair, no hope for the future whatsoever. Right. Very, very terrible fate. And of course, what this Allah talks about this door being opened upon them. This is something Allah subhanaw taala speaks about in the Quran. In surah Zoomer, where Allah subhanaw taala talks about hattah either
What's ecology Nakuru? Illa Johanna matsubara hace la Etihad Abu Abu Bakar La La Hosanna to her Alameda Chico musulman kumiko Suna la comida to become that it's talking about the gates of hell
that the gates of the fire of whoa haha oh hi cheese may have 40 has
that when they arrive there the gates of hell will be opened all right Allah subhanaw taala of course is generally speaking speaks about this other places within the Quran Hata da da mo trophy la da we saw this before I'm not gonna losses will do Hinata la mina Katara finally levena gonna move the Nova mithras and OB as hubby him right time and time again Allah subhanaw taala talks about this within the Quran, we all medical massage, you believe when Mooji moon la you factor and boom boom fi movie soon. So when the gates of hell are opened upon them,
then at that moment, now they will humble themselves. But it's not beneficial at that point. He doesn't see him hopefully soon, because that humility in the life of this world actually provides hope.
But that humility on that day of judgment when the gates of hell open and they feel the heat
almost rushing out from the gates and devouring them.
Allah speaks about this in the Quran at the end of Silla Menon Cali Hoon
you know, it's a bit harsh.
So please excuse me if it's too harsh for someone. But Kelly Han literally refers to their faces melting off of them.
That that humility, that they will obviously have at that moment.
It will benefit them. He doesn't see him ugly soon.
But the only result of that humility at that moment will be utter despair.
That we messed up
a las panatela protect us all.
And just says a little linguistic point and nuance eblast this word bellus. eblast refers to utter and absolute despair. And
some of their grammarians and scholars of the language women they say woman vaniqa who sztuka is smooth lease kana who is a mirage Mattila
right that from this also comes the name of a police because he has completely lost any hope from the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala
the next ayah
I in number 78
Allah subhanaw taala says well who will levy and sha Allah como sama I will have a saara will have EDA Polina matters Quran
a brief translation of the ayah is, it is God who endo who endowed you with hearing sights and hearts, how seldom you are grateful.
So here in this particular I LS Pena, which Allah says, obviously, as the translator mentioned, who will lead the insha Allah, He is the one who raised and grew for you a summer, the ability to listen to hear, will absorb the ability to see well of EDA, and the ability to reflect. And the reason why Allah doesn't just say Hola, kala Ko, a sama he created for you, or john Allah como sama, which he does say other places don't put on that he made for you placed within you the ability to hear and see and reflect. But he says, insha Allah who kind of grew and raised because that ability grows, that ability grows, like what you hear, how you hear and what you hear. It's supposed to grow and
develop and sophisticate over time.
And what you see, and how you see what you see, and what you know how you understand things and reflect upon things, and the world around you. It's something that Allah has given you the ability to grow that capacity to grow that ability, so much so so much so that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says
right this very beautiful he says it's a comin ferocity moment. Be very mindful of the kind of inner vision of the believer Leanna who young will be Nutella because he sees by means of the lights of Allah. A believer sees the world a different way.
He just sees things in a different light.
Well, that's a conical Lavina Carlos me Anna who is not on Don't be like those people who say we heard we heard. We heard you
Welcome is my own but they really don't hear anything Don't listen. They say we heard you but they don't listen.
They don't like a smartphone or VR they have yours they don't really listen though. Well
they have eyes but they don't see what they need to see when a home
is Kahuna Bihar they have hearts but they really don't understand and reflect on the reality like
they're like cattle believable rather they're even more worthless than cattle.
They're useless. Right? So this is why a lot of talks about growing this capacity growing it
kalila matters Quran and this Maya is almost like an expression. It's used to really talk about
how little poly llama it goes with Colleen, very little Do you are you actually grateful?
Very little or do you actually express gratitude for
now before I mentioned one of the very and of course a couple other references within the Quran in Surah Surah 16 is 78 Allah said john Allah calm, sama, Sama Veda, the Allah, Quran that he has placed within you He has made for you place within you the ability to listen and see and reflect so that you may develop a sense of gratitude and express gratitude in Sultan book in sort of 67 I had 23 people who are loving and chacun he's the one who grew you and raised you What's your Alana como Somerville Uppsala, and placed within you the ability to listen and see and reflect kalila matters? Very little Are you actually grateful for like very little do you actually express your gratitude?
Right, so this is what Allah subhanaw taala refers to here. Now before I explain very interesting and profound linguistic nuances within this ayah that we're studying here is 78, in sort of 23. And similarly, the other ayat that I also mentioned, as well, another is similarly makes mention of these three things and sort of off, I 26, for my own home, some of them, that their ability to listen to not help them What are beside of them, nor did their ability to see benefit them when I see that a woman shape, nor did their ability to reflect on things help them in the least bit. Because they didn't make use of these gifts. Right? So what is the connection, we understand the
meaning of the eye, Allah gave you all these gifts in your so you didn't do anything with them? You didn't develop a sense of gratitude for Allah. But how does this connect to what was previously being said?
Right, how does this relate to what was previously being said? Because now, Allah subhanaw taala has obviously laid out what the believers are like,
what the believers are not like, what are their excuses for not adopting the attributes and the qualities that they should be embody, that they should embody.
But now Allah subhanaw taala, saying, in spite of the fact that they had every single resource they required that they needed.
What was missing was that again, we keep coming back to that point, that sincere desire, from within, to really believe,
to make sense of their lives, that was lacking. So they can't blame anyone or anyone or anything else.
So that's why Allah subhanaw taala transition to talking about this here.
The other point that I want to mention that's within this is well, that a lot of talks about their ability to listen and see and reflect. And this is kuleana matters. And he didn't say kalila took me know very little Do you believe says very little are you grateful for because belief is born out of gratitude. And this way, when Allah teaches us, he man, he mentioned his blessings upon us. Just start off by being grateful to Allah by saying, Yes, Allah has blessed me and Allah is giving me so much. And that gratitude, it fosters belief in the man
that will grow into a man and belief. But the first step is developing a sense of gratitude, and instilling a sense of gratitude. And so that's what I always point to you just be grateful. just acknowledge that Allah has blessed you, and let that carry you the rest of the way.
And lastly, and finally, I'll point out the linguistic nuance. In all these ads, this is a little movie known as 78,
sauraha, 26, certain altshuller, 16, ismb, eight as well. Certain moolchand number 67 is 23. All these is where Allah mentions these three blessings, the ability to listen, hear, see, and reflect.
And also all three, all three of these in all these different places are mentioned in the Quran, when Allah talks about the ability to listen,
he mentioned is in in the singular semer now
Man or woman, but some.
But when a law talks about the ability to see he mentioned the plural absorbed, not bussan, but absorbed, when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned is the ability to reflect, right, the internal reflection, he says, either not to add.
So why seeing and reflecting is in the plural, but listening is in the singular.
And that's a question that some of the scholars of the Quran have basically presented here. It's something to think about.
And wherever these gifts and these blessings are mentioned, it talks about developing a sense of gratitude. Something else that it also talks about there is the fact that the journey to believing starts with first listening to what Allah has said to you, the Quran,
right? heeding the message.
And so it's talking about the singularity of the source of where this journey begins. And again, the sequence that I mentioned them in listening, and then seeing and then reflecting, it all starts with the Quran.
That first you got to come to the forum, then the Quran will give you the lens, by means of which when you look at the world, then your reflection what you will see, everyone will see something different.
Everyone will have different a different view of the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala in the world around them.
Everyone will have a different process and a different journey. And then the reflection will also be very, will be varied. And everyone will have a different means of arriving at that realization of the gratitude to Allah which leads to faith. But it all begins with a singular source of the Quran. The Quran is the source, it is the guidance, it is what we have to share. It is what we have to present, it is what we have to deliver to the people. It is what we ourselves have to learn to embrace. And until and unless we approach the rest of the process through the lens of the Quran
will have difficulty on that journey and will get lost on that journey. But the Quran is what keeps you on track. And so it's talking about the singularity of the source, which is the book of Allah subhana wa tada
I number 71 The law says well who will lead either a conference or the way he talks Sharon beautiful, a translate a translation says that it is He Who made you multiply on earth and it is to him that you will be gathered. Now what who will levy who are referred to Allah will who will lead he he is the one Vera Vera in the Arabic language means to spread to disperse to spread out. He's the one who spreads you out within the earth. And so this refers to two things not only does it refer to obviously kind of the multiplying of the human beings as Allah speaks about many places when within the Quran. What does that mean? humare Jalan casiotone one is a sort of genocide. The
first I absolutely saw through Maya Angelou by Sharon tanta Sheila in Surah, two room I have 20 that you are human beings that spread out in many, many different numbers.
And certain molk I quoted the IRS similarly right after that are less as well as the Vera config or the way he laid his structure on that he is the one who spreads you out into the earth. So it refers to human beings not only multiplying but also spreading out. Okay.
But then Allah says what laiki to Sharon,
and this why it's powerful, that as much as you spread out as far as you spread out as diverse and numerous, then you may become Elaine he, to Him alone, to Shannon Will you all be gathered back.
That everything goes back to the source.
Everything will conclude just as everything began. Everything started with the amount of Allah and everything will conclude an end with the amount of Allah
you came forth by the command of a lot and you will be summoned together and concluded by the command of Allah.
And Allah subhanaw taala after saying this an ayah number 80.
Allah speaks about the life of the hereafter. Well while adding up where you need to win a hoop deal after laylee won the howdy Avila Takeru
a translation says, It is he who gives life and death the alternation of night and day depends on him. Will you not use your minds? Well, who will levy and he is the one Alavi The one who you he he gives life what you mean to and he's the one who takes life. What are who. Now this of course refers to the ultimate scenario of giving
And taking away life and that is in the life of this world, that he's the one who put us in this life in this world and he's the one who will take us away from this world. But at the same time, Allah subhanaw taala says something very beautiful. He says, what a who, and to Him alone belongs the ability of the level at which the alternation of nights and day. Now why does the last kind of agenda mentioned that? Because throughout an alternation of night and day you experience a state of lifelessness a lack of consciousness when you go to sleep, and then you wake up every morning, and you go through this process, you experienced some level of it every single day.
Let's reflect on that.
And then realize the fact that Allah subhanaw taala will similarly be so discipline you in the life of the hereafter. Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran, he says, What will the Falcon be named? Serato Anna is 60 What will our Falcon be nailing. He is the one who takes you away, your consciousness away at night. We are the majority. And he knows what you experienced during the day familiar but I feel comfy. But then he's the one that allows you to get up for the next day again.
He knows what you went through during the day. He takes away your consciousness and it allows you to recuperate and recover and then raises you up for the next day again, Connor he
is 71 through 73. Allah says Hmm, have you ever given thought to the fact in Jalla Allahu Allah commelina samadhan the reformated Knights for all of eternity. Elijah mithya Matilda Day of Resurrection money now heydo lucky it can be the one who besides Allah is there as a God as a deity that would bring you light daylight ever again.

But if also have you thought about the fact that if Allah made it daytime on you till the Day of Resurrection, Manila on radio lucky Yeah, it won't be late Escalona fee, who besides the lies there as a god or a deity that could bring you night so that you may recover and recuperate? find peace and tranquility.

but then Allah subhanaw taala concludes in Isaiah 81 through 83 belcanto Mithra makalah Willow
perhaps after all this they said the same things that the people that came before said you see how now this is tying back all the way to the passage where the nations of the past were mentioned. But they said the same exact things that those people before them said
I add to palu either mithuna wakulla to Robin where his arm and
they said that
that when if we die when we die and we have become nothing but Dustin bones will we really be resurrected? Really?
derivative credulous will really be resurrected? I in number 83 Allah says locka Don't worry
about hoonah hada
that they say like other worried about una hava that we were promised this we end our forefathers were promised this Min cobban from before in other illa satola winning these are nothing but old stories fables that have been told us athlete is a plural of the word.
Like fables, myths, that have been told from the earliest of times. In Sultana Malala talks about they say the same thing. In is 6768 McFarland levena cafaro those who disbelieve who wanted this belief who are ungrateful in gratitude see those who are ungrateful
disbelief. They say no to Robin, that when we have become dust, what about when our and our forefathers and
then we'll be extracted again? Look at the Marina, haven't
we end our forefathers were promised we were promised this and are we and our forefathers from before in other Eliza toolani these are nothing but old stories that have been told for a very, very long time. Now the first saloon mentioned that
what does that mean? Like? How are they refuting that by saying that we were promised this? How is that a basis of refutation for them?
That they're saying that you said that when people leave this world, then they are brought back they are resurrected?
Well, we had many people that passed away before us.
We're still waiting.
They haven't come back. We haven't seen them yet.
Right? And that's that whole attitude of seeing is believing.
Show me bring them back.
And then we'll have the conversation, we'll talk about it.
But that's very at the very heart of their insolence
that they don't want to believe, and so they don't.
And ultimately, at the end of the day,
there's really no rationale and logic that changes someone's mind like that. But rather, it has to be that realization of that the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created me, and blessed me and gave me so much that that gratitude will inspire to belief in obedience, that obedience is born out of gratitude. And unless and until that gratitude exists, then that obedience and that belief just will not.
So we'll go ahead and conclude here. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. So handling behind the use of ohana, Colombia hamitic Mashallah. Illa Illa? Anta sakurako Anna to be like,
