Spit out hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome back dear viewers to the field of salty I seen with embracing Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala said lapad help balko Allah accetti him for whom laomi known.
Allah, Allah accetti him, the whole the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala it became a reality it became manifest it became a reality upon most of them. And because of this formula, you may know, they're not going to be believing in Allah subhanaw taala What does this mean over here? In the past verses Allah subhanaw taala told us that Allah had sent the Quran down to the messengers of Allah who it was said, the twin the Rocky Mountains that are feeling that he did so so that you may warn people whose forefathers hadn't been warned ie the close forefathers. They hadn't been mourn, for whom lafi alone and because of that they are heedless away from a lot of velocity. Everything that
just be wary and considerate, and remember the fact that most people in humanity, there's a decree from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon them, that they're not going to end up believing. And that's because shavon asked Allah subhanaw taala for him to be granted respites so that he can mislead people, and and many people they end up becoming misled. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I send messengers down for people of intellect. And for people who want to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. For people who want to come closer to the message for people who want a shot agenda. He says those are the people that are going to be accepting the message. Otherwise, look what happened oh,
Allah accetti him for him, let me know and most people there, there's already a decree they're not going to end up believing. Now. Let me ask you a question. And you're probably asking yourself this question as well. If there's already a decree from Allah subhanho wa Taala that many people are not going to believe. Then what's the point to begin with of trying? Well, the reality is, you don't know who to side in which side you will be on. Okay. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when a similar question had come to him, the prophet SAW Selim, he told the companions, he said intermodal for Colombia certainly mahakala do because every single person has been facilitated for
whatever has been created for. So our job is to simply do the actions hoping from Allah subhanaw taala that will be granted Jenna and Allah Subhana Allah is Mercy is a such an Allah subhanho wa Taala his generosity is such that if someone comes to him sincerely, there is no way Allah Subhana Allah will reject that person. But if the person is coming to the deen of Allah, the religion of Allah, apparently but inside internally, the person is not sincere, then maybe even towards the end of the person's life, they may end up going astray and they may end up going another direction. So that becomes manifest and clear to public and the people that that person never really intended
righteous intentions when he was coming closer to the deen when he was acting, practicing basically, okay, so Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to see shining sincerity within your heart. And when he sees that, then Allah Subhana Allah allows you to be facilitated for the path of Jannah Allah says about these people who will be entered into Hellfire he says in Niger Allah nafi ohana be him. Allah Allah Alolan for here ILA Ani for homopolymer hoon. He says that we have made within the necks of these person we have made within the the necks of these people, collars that are made of iron. And these colors, they go all the way to the chin of the individual, for whom, number one and that's causing
their faces to be raised up. Now, this is not a reality. This is basically a metaphor. What does this mean? A lie saying that a lie is placed within the necks of people who happened to be disbelievers who happened to be dwellers of hellfire. He's made them such that they have collars made of iron around their neck and that's causing they're there all the way till their chin as well and that's causing them to not be able to put their necks down. Okay, for whom mahone and then Allah continues I'll tell you what the metaphor is about after I explained the next verse because they related Allah subhana wa tada says What do you mean begging the ad him said then amin Kulfi him said
then for Shay now whom for whom Allah you'll soon and we have placed before them, we've placed before them a barrier, okay. And we've placed also behind them a barrier as well. And because of these two barriers that Allah Subhana Allah has placed before and behind the individual for our show you now
Because of that, we've covered them up from every single direction and they're not able to see. Now what are they not able to see? They're not able to see guidance. You see, Allah subhanaw taala or many times he refers to our religion as a as a Shira. Allah says in the Quran, liquid lingyin nomenklatura 10 one woman harder for every single person or every single nation. I missed you I've made a Shira and him in Hydra as well. And both of those the facility, the scholars of the seed, they say both of those, well, there's two opinions. Some say ninhydrin should are the same thing. Other say, actually mean Hodgins should are two different things. And, and the second opinion based
on that, and that's what I believe is the case as well, because what's the point of repeating the same thing over and over? That's something that Allah subhanaw taala wouldn't do in the Quran. Right? So the correct view is that those two are different things. There's a Mahajan, there's a shadow as well, basically, and they're both in reference to religion though. Min Hodge is highlighting the clarity of the religion because the word and knowledge it means clarity. And Sheila is is highlighting the satiation satiating nature of, of religion and the fulfilling nature, nature of religion. You know, there are many people who are away from religion and they say what they say,
you know what, I'm not fulfilled. There's something missing in my life. So Allah subhanaw taala reminds those people that, hey, the religion is a Shira, it's a water body. It's like a little pond to which animals come and human beings also come, and then they, they can drink from there. So when you drink from this pond, you become satiated and satisfied. That's the thing about this religion. So many times Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to this religion as a pond at some water that satiate and satisfies human beings. So over here, Allah is seeing that I have placed within the necks of some people this very carefully here, because it's a metaphor, and I'm trying to break it down here.
Okay, I have placed within the necks of some people, iron colors. And those colors are all the way till their chin you know, those colors that you wear that sometimes they used to wear in draconian times where the color would have the the lever a decide, and so the person can't put their heads down. And and he says for homopolymer when and because of that their heads are raised, because an EB l una hora Thema there's two ways to pronounce that was basically the the camel that would try to drink water within the SHA coma hidden as opposed says that he would go and drink water in a time where, where it's already very cold. And specifically that refers to the month of December in the
month of January because those are relatively cold, cold months, right. And that's why the two months that the Arabs referred to as Shahada demand are genuine and Edward and Karina Thani, which is December, December, and January. This is a time in which many countries in the world are very, very cold. Okay, not everywhere in the world. Of course, as you know, whether it's a different but the Arabian culture had it, that at this time, it's going to be very cold weather. So, so the camels would go, and they would try to drink water. And when they when they would try to drink water, the pond is freezing cold. So every time they'll put their mouse in there, it would be so cold that they
would put it back up. And the Arabs they started to refer to that habit of a camel or that type of camel, or that scenario of a camel as as, as camels which are female. Because they're putting their heads in, they're trying to drink water, but it's freezing cold. So they bring their heads right back up and it's all the way up. And if you ever seen a camel, you know, the neck is very high. And also the camel kind of raises the head as well. A little bit like this. Okay, so that description is all being described in the word milkman.
And and why is that happening? Why is that being described, Allah is saying that just as the camel is unable to get that pond. Similarly the pond of Sharia is right before these people, but Allah subhanaw taala has put a metaphorical iron collar around the necks of these people that they can't even look down and drink from this pond that Allah Subhana Allah has made. So it's a law who guides people. And that's why even those who have been granted the guidance, they've been asked by Allah subhanho wa Taala to repeatedly 17 times a day, ask Allah subhana wa Taala for even more guidance, and that's why we are commanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala in our Salawat to read Surah Fatiha,
which has the question of hours to Allah subhana wa to Allah for guidance agenus that often Misaki or Allah grant us this, this path and give us guidance to it as well. So
My home. What do you mean Bailey ad him said done. And this is further descriptive of how far away they happen to be from this guidance. Not only are they not able to put their necks down to drink from the pond of guidance, rather, it's more than that. They've also been blocked as well from every direction. And all of this is happening not because Allah wants you to be misguided, because sometimes people take this and say, oh, because God has decreed that means Allah wants to miss guidance for people. That's not the case. If Allah wants to miss guidance for people, then why would he send this book down? Why would he send messengers down? Why would you send profits down and some
reports have it that there were 124,000 profits? So why would Allah subhana wa tada send all these prophets and messengers, if he really wanted guidance, guidance for people, that's not what Allah wants. Allah wants guidance for you. Allah wants is for you. Allah wants comfort for you, Allah subhana wa tada doesn't want misery for you in this life or the next. But it's men who chooses or some men or some women who choose not to accept that guidance. It's right before you the message. It's your choice and my choice whether we take it or not. What you're allowing I'm invading at him said then woman Humphrey himself then fell Shana home for home lay off. So what's the word? lay him
and it's equal upon them under their home? Mmm to the room. Now you mean, it's equal, whether you warn them over her med, or you don't warn them, they're not going to end up believing. Now over here, I'm going to pause and say something very important because some people may misunderstand this. They'll say, Well, if Allah has already decreed, and it's equal, whether their people are warned or not, what's the point of warning? No, no, no, that's not what's going on over here. Allah is telling you that because of the infinite knowledge of Allah, Allah knows what's going to happen in the future anyways, he knows that which was and that which isn't that which will be in that which
will not be in that which wasn't if it were to be how it would have been. This is the knowledge of Allah. Allah knows when a leaf falls from a tree. Allah knows about that leaf as well. I'm at the school domina law, but in India, Allah, Allah, his knowledge is infinite. And it's limitless. Allah is just trying to tell the prophets, I send them that through my limitless and an infinite knowledge. I know. Now, I'll give you a finite example of this. A father has five kids or seven kids, or three kids, most of us, you know, probably have just three or four kids, right? But some people they go beyond and they have like 1012 kids and hamdulillah May Allah give you more children,
Allah I mean. So the point is that within those children of yours, who you have raised, and you have born and you have given birth to, and you have fed, you know that this child, if you'd work with him like this, then it's going to work. And if you do it that way, it's not going to work, you know that if you give this task to Zaid are they it's going to happen or it's not going to happen, because those are your children. Similarly, a lost knowledge and art we have finite knowledge. And that's why even sometimes we say Oh, it's going to happen that way. And it doesn't end up happening that way, right? When in the hidden method, Allah and Allah has a much greater example. This is just a
finite world. This is only to make Allah is an example closer to you, otherwise Allah is example is nothing like ours, because Allah subhanaw taala is infinite and limitless in every which way. So Allah Subhana, Allah knows because of this infinite knowledge of his, and because of this limitless knowledge of his, this knowledge of the SL and the abbot, this knowledge of the past, present and the future, this knowledge of even possibilities that never happened, if they were to happen, how they would have panned out and planned out, Allah Subhana Allah knows the world in this way. And because of that, he's telling the prophets I said, that, hey, it's going to be equal, whether you
warn them or not, because they're not going to believe but you got to do your job anyways. Because that is your job. That is your job and that is to guide to the message in nama turn zero, Manitoba, adekola. washy, man, I believe. So that should be my Filipino, Nigerian Corinne. And then Allah Subhana Allah says the only person who will truly accept your message is the person who follows the reminder is the person who follows the book, because the word vivid is also used for the on as well. And so the person who will actually accept that warning, the person who will be compelled and affected by that warning, the person who will actually reap the fruits of that warning is the
individual who remembers Allah subhanho wa Taala and is the person who accepts this message as well. And the reminder when it comes to him, and he has some degree of fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala in his privacy as well. You know, there are those people out there who basically have have have went away from the ideals of even human beings. Let's not even talk about religion for a second, okay, to a degree that they've kind of become animals now
This person, it's hard to engage with them because they have completely covered up their humanity within them. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, saying those type of people, they're not going to be able to be affected by the message. But there are those people who when they sit by themselves, even if they're far away from God, and even if they're far away from religion, they still have some degree of shyness from God, they still have some degree of, of sensibility and humanity within them. These are the people who will be impacted, most likely by your message as for someone who's become completely away from God, in a way where they basically become an animal, like a person who has
committed 100 homicides, but even that there are examples in history that people can come back from that because there may be something that is within the heart, which is known as the why I love Allah, the Warner and the monitor of Allah. But when that guilt also dies, then it's finished.
There's no chances that Ireland is going to come back when he's gotten to that level of de Leon transgression, there's no chances that people like Phil town will are going to come back because when the word of Allah when that add monitor of Elias completely died, it's pretty much done. Okay.
It's pretty much done but we still don't give rulings on human beings because Allah subhana wa tada has the hearts of people, as the Hadith has it, that the hearts of people are between the two fingers of Allah he openly Baha kfa, Sha, Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to move it in whichever direction so as he pleases, for sure it will be among Filipino aged and Kareem. So warn that person who accepts your warning. So give that person the glad tidings of forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And also as you're getting and also reward which is very, very benevolent, and also reward which is very, very noble and honorable as well. So Allah Subhana, Allah gives this person who
accepts the warning from the prophets, I send them to things, Allah Subhana Allah grants him mercy from the sins that he'd committed in the past. And Allah subhanho wa Taala Gribbin grants and forgiveness from the sins that he committed in the past. And he also gives them a reward, which is very noble. Because any person who's coming closer to Allah subhanaw taala, is looking for two things. You're looking for your slate to be cleaned, you're looking for your sins to be cleaned. And at the same time, you're also looking to be rewarded. And Allah subhanaw taala says, the person who accepts the guidance from the prophets, I send them as he's delivering it, and he takes the message
in the Quran, and he implements it within his life, and he accepts it as the Prophet has given, that person will be given to rewards, he'll be forgiven for all of his sins. And he will also be met with a very noble reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, all of this over here from verse number one, all the way till verse number, 11, and even 12. By the way, all of this is the first segment of the surah. And as we go through this, what I'll be doing later on, what I'll do is, I'll stop at the different segments, and I'll say, okay, from here to here was one segment from here to here was another segment and so forth. Why? Because there is this prevalent idea between the minds of some
people orientalist and others, who believe that the Quran has no pattern to it. And we believe and argue that the Quran has a beautiful pattern to it. But it takes a level of literary ability for you to be able to see that pattern. And it takes a level of, of analysis as well within the words of the Quran and the sentences in the paragraph. So the prologue, through which you can see that, oh, there's a complete thought here that started at this point. And it finished over here. In that thought there was a pre face, there was the meat of the thought. And there was also a conclusion of the thought as well. And that thought is very connected to the next one as well, and so forth. And
just like that, the Quran has these segments that are very, very interconnected. And this is the case with sort of the scene as well. You know, when I looked at the suit, I and I tried to break it down into different sections. To be honest with you, even I, myself was taken aback at how beautifully the sutra is connected, one segment to another. So over here, Allah Subhana Allah starts off the first segment of the surah he starts it off with the first five ayat, okay, what are they? He tells you, yes, he will call on Hakeem in the Colombian Masai,
that he has seen and then he talks about the Quran. And he says to the messenger, so suddenly you are among the messengers of God upon the right path and, and you've been granted this Quran which happens to be a revelation from Allah subhanaw taala. Then he goes into another subsection of this segment, and he says that you've been granted this Burano Mohammed so that you may warn people. Now, when you warn people, then there's going to be circumstances that those people happen.
To be in, some of those people may accept a message and others will not. So what's going to happen to those people who don't accept your warnings? Oh Mohammed, then Allah subhanho wa Taala describes those people. And after he describes all of that, he goes and gives us a conclusion. And he says in national Luffy melta, one actor boom academic
work couldn't leshy in Salina, houfy emammal been
Allah subhana wa tada says that we are the ones who will resurrect everyone. In National orefield melta one actor wuma demo, I thought, oh, and we will write whatever they had delivered. Whatever actions they had put forth as well, we will write those down. Whatever actions they sent before, to the the after life we had, we'll write those down thought as well. And we will also write down all of the footprints of these people as well. And what does this mean? Now, remember, Allah is talking in this segment about the Quran, which is the first five verses, then in the second segment, he's talking about the people who are warned by the messenger send them, and then he finishes it off with
the conclusion. And he says that you have to be wary and considerate of the fact that everything you're doing, I'm writing it down. I'm the one who will resurrect people on the Day of Judgment. And I'm writing down everything that was happening, those people who are worn, I'm writing down their reactions, the ones who accepted the message, their reactions have been written down. The ones who rejected the message, their reactions have been written down as well. Okay? their reactions have been written down as well. And even though a lie in these verses doesn't mention explicitly, the people who did righteous deeds, he only mentioned those people who met the message of the prophets
with rejection. It's understood that even those who met the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not with rejection, but rather with acceptance, even those are being indicated within within these verses. And that's because in the conclusion is general, a lysing. I'm the one who resurrects people, and I have written down everything that they have put forth. And I've also written down their prints as well, meaning all of the remains of their actions as well. And the reason why don't we know that this last conclusion is in effect, referring to those people who accepted the message and those who are rejected even though the ones accepting are not explicitly
mentioned is because the laws messengers also let me use this idea, this this particular idea? When he was talking about the people of benu selama because there is a group of people from metal selama they wanted to come and move closer to the masjid The Prophet said Lim said, stay where you are, because when you walk, Allah Subhana Allah is writing down your Athar, he's writing down your footprints. Okay, so that's a positive footprint, not a negative one.
So even though there is no mention of the people who accepted the message, they're already understood, because what we did do that to begin with a shadow, and through the opposites, we understand the other sides of the opposite as well. So if you have one side of the coin, you see it, you know, there's another side of the coin as well. So if Allah mentioned the ones who rejected the message, naturally, there's also those who accepted the message. So the conclusion is inclusive of both of those. In Nononono, you'll notice one actor Wilma demo, will Kunal leshy say now fi my movie, and everything, we have collected it together in an emammal. mobi in the register. Okay, so
Allah Subhana, Allah has made a register, and in that register, Allah has collected all of the information. So any action we do is being recorded. And on the Day of Judgment, we're going to let us know that the heart and cliche and we're going to be asked by Allah subhanaw taala, about everything, I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala, to allow us to have a positive footprint in this life. And the footprint by the way, is basically your Southern Nigeria or your say Giardia. It's your charity that is that doesn't come to an end, it's your continuous charity and similarly, or continuous evil as well, because there are those people in this world who keep on investing into
continuous charity. And they give to, for example, a Masjid to make a house of Allah, or they give to human knowledge so that people of knowledge can prevail and children can learn and become brilliant and deliver the message of the messengers as well. But then there are those people who also invest in other things which are evil, and they end up investing evil and putting forth evil for their afterlife. So So long as that evil is continuous, they will be getting reward but not reward rather being punished for the evil that continues within this world. Okay, so that is like continuous evil. And then there are those people who do righteous deeds and they want to accumulate
positive reward and
So they will also be rewarded. All of that is being recorded. And all of that is the footprint that Allah is talking about. All of that is the metaphorical footprint that Allah subhanaw taala is talking about within this verse. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us have positive footprints within this life so that we meet Allah and we are granted our book with our right hands, not with our left alone. I mean, well sallallahu ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala early he will be here, Jermaine.
