Smilla Mannerheim handler of benign Amin or salat wa salam ala

00:00:18 --> 00:00:29

Nabina Muhammad Ali he was heard here 2 million bad rubbish roughly Saudi Arabia Siddeley Emery why no no for the Middle East and Africa holy

00:00:30 --> 00:00:34

rubies in the obese in the rubies in

00:00:41 --> 00:00:41


00:00:43 --> 00:01:08

the moral of the story is, right, a moral of a story is what we benefit from the story. Now Allah subhanaw taala just and, you know, he doesn't tell us the story of use of just for us to kind of be entertained. All right, especially, this is revealed to our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, sunnah. And the conclusion, the conclusion of the the surah is directly directed towards the Prophet Muhammad. So I sent him

00:01:09 --> 00:01:10

as an as we can see,

00:01:12 --> 00:01:21

what the last two ads Allah, Allah speaks. And if we focus and analyze the way Allah speaks to our Prophet

00:01:22 --> 00:01:24

is actually very,

00:01:26 --> 00:02:05

something we find, for me anyways, it's very, it's very touching. Right? It's something where you get a glimpse of the relationship that Allah has, and the love that Allah subhanaw taala has towards his, his beloved messenger, His Beloved Prophet, right, so these, these points, these small areas within the Quran, where Allah Subhan Allah is directed to directing the directing his speech towards our Prophet, you can just, you know, grasp, like a glimpse of how Allah subhanaw taala loves our Prophet so much. Right?

00:02:06 --> 00:02:31

As well as Allah subhanaw taala is speaking to him, and trying to give them advice, and telling him like, I know what's going on with you, I can see that you're, you know, you're, you're dealing with so many things, and Allah is there for him. Right? And it's more powerful because Allah, the Prophet Muhammad said, um, he was, he was born an orphan.

00:02:32 --> 00:02:35

He never had a father figure in his life.

00:02:38 --> 00:02:55

Or the closest father that he had was about him. And he passed away. Right? So living life without, you know, without having a father. Just the use of a sudden, useful Islam, he lived majority of his life without a father.

00:02:56 --> 00:02:56


00:02:57 --> 00:02:59

we know, if a

00:03:00 --> 00:03:29

child doesn't, you know, like a lot of the industry in America, we have so many, especially with the black community, where you have many kids who grow up, not having a father one way, or they're in prison, or, you know, they if they left they left or right. So you have single family homes, who you have, you know, you have orphans, who grew up without a father.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:33

You have something missing in that child's life.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:38

Now, just imagine, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi. Salam,

00:03:39 --> 00:03:52

his teachings and the things that he learned was through the Quran. This was this was, you know, father figure. So, so so to speak. So when Allah subhanaw taala speaks to him?

00:03:54 --> 00:04:01

Have you ever come across or if we ever come across an idea where Allah speaks to the Prophet Muhammad says,

00:04:02 --> 00:04:09

pause. Try to understand what Allah is saying. In the way he speaks to our Prophet Muhammad says

00:04:11 --> 00:04:11


00:04:13 --> 00:04:13

So we've read

00:04:16 --> 00:04:17


00:04:18 --> 00:04:20

and Allah subhanaw taala says

00:04:22 --> 00:04:23

the Ministry of Energy

00:04:36 --> 00:04:39

as I know whom I am in agile

00:04:40 --> 00:04:46

Cole having he sent me another row in a

00:06:08 --> 00:06:17

row you know law here and I'll see you're not in and a woman or any whatsoever

00:06:19 --> 00:06:25

or whatsoever Han Allah He was

00:06:27 --> 00:06:29

shaky in

00:06:31 --> 00:06:48

so from item 104 I've just read number off 1042 I and number one always I'm going to try my best to kind of cover as much as I can between those is inshallah now almost one woman I laid him in charge of

00:06:51 --> 00:06:56

leaking, still speaking to, to the profit houses and I'm now I want to focus

00:06:58 --> 00:07:03

Allah is is referring to two people or two to

00:07:05 --> 00:07:19

two people that he's referring to, one of which is our Prophet Muhammad says he's speaking to him. Now these subjects, the topic at hand are the people that they're speaking up, or the Quraysh

00:07:21 --> 00:07:23

the way Allah speaks to the Prophet, I said I'm

00:07:24 --> 00:07:51

not only is it's very, it's very kind, but also, he is giving him reassurance. He's, he's, he's, he's, he's understanding what the prophet house is, is going through, and all of the stress and anxiety and all the, you know, the heavy burden that he carries. Allah comes with an idea, saying the following. He says, Well, Matt says, I know whom I like him and

00:07:53 --> 00:08:00

you're not asking them. You're not asking the Quraysh for for any payments or anybody.

00:08:02 --> 00:08:08

Right. So the topic at hand here as we speak, we spoke of Yes, last week.

00:08:09 --> 00:08:23

The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, he says, well, Ohara still be moving in right? He says, The Prophet Muhammad Salah Sanam, although he's trying his very best, he's trying his very best to do what

00:08:24 --> 00:08:27

to relay the message of Allah.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:43

The Prophet Muhammad says on his Troy harvester means trying as much as he can, no matter what it is, he's going through so much to the point where he's, he's wanting to give the last and final message of Allah. And he's taking it so seriously.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:45


00:08:46 --> 00:08:49

And you're not even asking them for anything?

00:08:50 --> 00:08:52

Well, not just any human.

00:08:53 --> 00:09:07

You know, you're not seeking payments. You're not seeking really benefits. You're not asking anything from them. And it's funny, it's actually interesting because what the Prophet Muhammad said, sort of giving them

00:09:08 --> 00:09:11

can be better than anything that can return.

00:09:13 --> 00:09:25

Right? As we hear in the profit. They go, they went to the Prophet Muhammad's Islam. And they asked him Oh, limit. If it's money that you want, we'll give it to you.

00:09:26 --> 00:09:30

Even power that you want. It was

00:09:31 --> 00:09:32

cool, give them to you

00:09:33 --> 00:09:35

to stop what you're doing.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:41

And the process of them says, that's not what it's not. It's not what he wants it.

00:09:42 --> 00:09:48

All he wants is just for you to accept this Lantus just for yourself. Not for me.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

He wants goodness for those people to save them from for from the hellfire. He's not asking for worldly benefits. Well, Mantis

00:10:00 --> 00:10:01

I know whom are the human

00:10:03 --> 00:10:06

input in the Quran the enemy.

00:10:07 --> 00:10:13

However, what what this is, is just a reminder,

00:10:15 --> 00:10:16

remind for who,

00:10:17 --> 00:10:20

for the courage for annual cardio,

00:10:21 --> 00:10:22

for just the

00:10:24 --> 00:10:26

the cruel in the mean

00:10:27 --> 00:10:30

for the whole entire world

00:10:31 --> 00:10:38

in who are they in who are in the cooling, I mean, indeed is just a reminder for you,

00:10:39 --> 00:10:44

not just for you Quraysh. But for anybody who hears the Quran

00:10:46 --> 00:10:55

is so powerful, that you have a Reminder for every single person in his world, past and present.

00:10:56 --> 00:10:59

And if you wanted to benefits, like,

00:11:01 --> 00:11:10

if we really knew what the what the Quran pin can give us, we would give everything that we own for it, we would,

00:11:11 --> 00:11:19

if only we knew if only the kuffaar knew what we have in our hands, they will send their nukes

00:11:21 --> 00:11:24

just to contain what we just do to take what we have.

00:11:26 --> 00:11:30

For Bucha, we're doing it, and we're not asking anything for return.

00:11:31 --> 00:11:32

We're not asking anything for return.

00:11:33 --> 00:11:44

And this is this is what Allah is telling him here. Now, the other way to kind of look at this is that law is speaking about people.

00:11:46 --> 00:12:07

But he's speaking to them in like a third person form. He's speaking to the Prophet Muhammad system. But the Quran is meant to be heard. These AI ads are being are being read out loud, that the Kure should hear it. Right. They hear it. They know what's going on.

00:12:08 --> 00:12:20

The thing is the way Allah mentions this the way he does it, he's not directing the speech to the Kurdish.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:37

Right. He says, We're not asking you guys, we're not asking you for for any benefits. But he's speaking to them as if they're not. Right, they're not included in your conversation. You're not important enough between my messenger and I.

00:12:39 --> 00:12:53

We're not the way Allah speaks. He's saying we're not asking them, you and me. We're not asking them for any benefit. You know, it's like, they're not a part of the conversation here. But this is still directed towards them.

00:12:54 --> 00:12:55


00:12:57 --> 00:13:01

Psychologically, when you have somebody who has a problem with another person,

00:13:02 --> 00:13:07

right? Somebody is affecting, you're a good friend of yours.

00:13:09 --> 00:13:11

And if you speak to your friend,

00:13:13 --> 00:13:18

naturally, you would speak to them concerning another person.

00:13:21 --> 00:13:27

Not directing not. How do you say, you're not? You're indirectly

00:13:29 --> 00:13:39

mentioning the other person. Or, for example, if you have a brother who is like, who's hurt, because another brother, maybe he's he made a rumor.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:51

You would say, It's okay, this, forget what other people are saying. We know Allah, just you and I, our conversation is between me and the brother.

00:13:53 --> 00:14:06

Whatever else you're saying vague them. Don't worry about what they say. Don't worry about what he says. Do you understand? If you if you change the way you speak to the person and say, you know,

00:14:07 --> 00:14:24

Dawood for example, though the word is the one that you know, affect your brother, that will you know, he's sometimes he can be wrong. Just forget that wouldn't work. The more you mentioned their name to the brother, it triggers something so that you're reminded of him.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:28

Allah subhanaw taala doesn't even mention

00:14:29 --> 00:14:30


00:14:31 --> 00:14:34

Because he's directing his speech towards his prophet.

00:14:35 --> 00:14:42

Will Mantis Elohim either human answered, we don't mean to ask them. Like, forget about them. Just we don't we're not even asking them. It's just you and me.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

You understand this feature? is very, it's actually it's subtle. But as we understand how Allah speaks to His Prophet, it makes it so much more I would say like, so personal, and I was like a father.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:04

to a son, a grandfather to his grandson is very personal.

00:15:07 --> 00:15:07


00:15:11 --> 00:15:15

as a person who who can benefit other people, the problem has is

00:15:16 --> 00:15:23

he can benefit not just to Quraysh but he can benefit the entire world with just a crime,

00:15:24 --> 00:15:25


00:15:26 --> 00:15:27


00:15:29 --> 00:15:30


00:15:32 --> 00:15:34

when they want something in return,

00:15:35 --> 00:15:38

it's a psychological way of like,

00:15:40 --> 00:15:53

every criminal has a motive. Right? Like if you, if you have something that you can benefit, or you stole something and they want it back, you have a motive for that you want you want something in return. Right? Or criminals.

00:15:54 --> 00:16:11

Whether their motive, whether it's like something that benefits them or money, right or revenge, even, they would want something to benefit them in return. That's how criminals work. Their mind is that they will do something for you.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:14

But they want something in return.

00:16:15 --> 00:16:17

The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu is on here.

00:16:19 --> 00:16:21

Allah is speaking about the Prophet Muhammad says,

00:16:22 --> 00:16:25

You're not even asking them for anything.

00:16:28 --> 00:16:41

In other words, Allah subhanaw taala is it is telling us or informing us one of the unique characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad system,

00:16:42 --> 00:16:43

and how he is

00:16:44 --> 00:16:48

like we're getting to know our prophets, through the Quran.

00:16:49 --> 00:17:00

And how is it? The Prophet Muhammad says Adam never wanted any benefits? When it came to teach us when it came to teaching Islam, he never asked for anything.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:02

He never asked for anything.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:08

It was sadaqa he'll refuse it. It was a gift, then he would take it.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:11

But otherwise he wouldn't ask

00:17:12 --> 00:17:20

nothing. So we learn a little bit more of our profit, just because of this one i right.

00:17:24 --> 00:17:35

Now, I lost one of the dimensions in who I think in Hua Illa Rickroll. In Anime, the word vector here is referring to the Quran.

00:17:36 --> 00:17:40

And the meaning of that is a reminder, something to remind somebody.

00:17:42 --> 00:17:48

Now, the scholars mentioned, there's just two separate things that I want to cover here, before we move on. The word vicar

00:17:49 --> 00:17:55

is reminding the people of what they already knew in the past.

00:17:56 --> 00:18:07

Referring to what? Referring to the Jews. So if we go back to the reason why Allah revealed the surah in the first place,

00:18:08 --> 00:18:18

the Quraysh they went to the Jews, because the Quran knew that they have a book, they were following a certain religion following a certain book.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:35

The Quran didn't have that. They didn't have anything of the likes, they all they had was idol worshipping. They didn't have any textbooks. In fact, a lot of the Kurdish majority of them were illiterate. They didn't know how to read, including our Prophet Muhammad says.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:43

So they wanted to challenge our prophets. So they went to the Jews. And they asked them,

00:18:44 --> 00:19:01

What can we do? Or what can we say? To up to a person that's claiming that their their prophet, and the Jews they mentioned they said, if he's truly a prophet, asked him about what happened between Yusuf and his brothers.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:28

Algo asked him if he if he's really a prophet, ask him about what happened between Yusuf and his brothers. So to Christ, they're like, Yeah, we have something. We have something to challenge the Prophet. For sure. We can get him this time because we we went traveled, we traveled to ask the Jews, how could he possibly know? So when they went they went to the prophesy centum and they asked him about use of a sunnah.

00:19:29 --> 00:19:40

And lo and behold, Allah has already revealed the story to our Prophet Muhammad, allah sallallahu sallam, right? Now. When Allah says Vic, get it here

00:19:42 --> 00:19:52

is uncanny that Allah is saying, this is just been a reminder, from what you already knew, the Jews.

00:19:53 --> 00:20:00

The Jews, they already knew the story of use of the Quran didn't know that. In fact, the Prophet Muhammad

00:20:00 --> 00:20:07

was a lot of it was sort of himself. When Allah says, when Allah says before this you didn't know you didn't know this story

00:20:08 --> 00:20:09

to our own profit.

00:20:10 --> 00:20:11


00:20:12 --> 00:20:22

So the vicar here is referring to what the Jews knew from their scriptures before about their prophet, the prophet useful etc.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:29

However, in the in this in this surah of use of s&m

00:20:30 --> 00:20:35

There, there are details that the Jews themselves didn't know about.

00:20:37 --> 00:20:55

Coming to confirm the Quran is required to confirm what they knew in the past, because you can't be reminded of something without even already knowing it. Right. So that's, that's number one, the vicar for the juice. Secondly,

00:20:56 --> 00:21:08

it's, it's a reminder for human beings, specifically for liquorish. Why? Because the Quran it's

00:21:11 --> 00:21:21

it's affirming something what's already in our hearts, the fifth row of a natural disposition of every single human being.

00:21:23 --> 00:21:25

Now, whenever we live life,

00:21:26 --> 00:21:32

and the things that we do in life tends to take our hearts further and further away from Allah.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:38

Naturally, our hearts yearns for Allah.

00:21:39 --> 00:21:44

Why do we think when we're in prayer, it feels natural.

00:21:45 --> 00:21:52

A heart is at ease. Everything is just calm, and it seems as if it's just a natural thing to do.

00:21:53 --> 00:22:04

Why is it when we fast for the sake of Allah in Ramadan, is easiest for you to do, to do Salah to do everything naturally.

00:22:05 --> 00:22:09

Because it's just natural for us to obey Allah and to serve Allah

00:22:10 --> 00:22:16

is even it feels more the case in Ramadan because shaitan is not there to bother us.

00:22:17 --> 00:22:20

All we have to do is rather battle with with our own desires.

00:22:22 --> 00:22:24

You see, Islam

00:22:25 --> 00:22:26

and worship worshipping Allah

00:22:27 --> 00:22:30

is a natural disposition position for every human being.

00:22:32 --> 00:22:34

Now we can even say that for the Quraysh

00:22:35 --> 00:22:42

mistake, because the Quraysh they believed in Allah. They had no problems with believing Allah.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:46

They their problem was shift.

00:22:47 --> 00:22:52

Their problem was associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala that was their problem.

00:22:54 --> 00:22:58

So that took them away from Allah. Now they get here.

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

Allah sends down the Quran as vicar, a reminder for them, to go back to the teachings of Islam

00:23:10 --> 00:23:13

to go back to their original to the teachings of Abraham.

00:23:14 --> 00:23:25

It's hard Yunus yah hoo. To go back to it, because that's what's original. That's what's what's natural for them. They already believe in Allah.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:43

But what they're doing is combining associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala. So is the cure for them as well. In Hawa Allah Nicola and I mean, indeed is just a reminder, it's just a reminder for us.

00:23:44 --> 00:23:46

If we read the Quran,

00:23:48 --> 00:24:01

you will realize that every single thing in our lives, whatever, whatever the Quran talks about, it just reminds you of what we should be doing.

00:24:03 --> 00:24:06

And it brings you back to the simple way of

00:24:07 --> 00:24:12

reality of life. The reality of a reality of life is just worshipping Allah.

00:24:14 --> 00:24:15

The Quran,

00:24:16 --> 00:24:25

it brings you back to humbleness, it makes you worship of Allah easier. It makes you your life in this dunya easier.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:32

It's just reminding you to go back to the simple practical life of worship.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:36

That's what it is Wallahi

00:24:37 --> 00:24:40

if we delve in understand the Quran,

00:24:41 --> 00:24:49

it makes a Muslim their life in their worship. So much easy, so much more easier.

00:24:51 --> 00:24:54

Because it's just a reminder, we know

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

because of our natural disposition we already know

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

All that we need to worship something

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04


00:25:05 --> 00:25:08

every character every human being in his life

00:25:09 --> 00:25:21

deep down inside they know what's natural. The Quran is just there to bring them back to what's natural that's what the Quran does in what INLA the grown anatomy

00:25:26 --> 00:25:35

what a year in yet, Sam our team one all the years oh nine, a

00:25:36 --> 00:25:40

Yamaha oh nine a hammer home on her

00:25:42 --> 00:25:42


00:25:44 --> 00:25:45

in this area.

00:25:47 --> 00:25:48

Now I want everyone to be aware

00:25:50 --> 00:25:52

to understand this idea as if

00:25:54 --> 00:25:55

Allah speaking to us.

00:25:57 --> 00:26:02

Allah speaking to the Prophet Muhammad says I'm about to crash.

00:26:03 --> 00:26:04

And he says

00:26:06 --> 00:26:09

in how many signs how many

00:26:10 --> 00:26:13

signs within the heavens in the earth?

00:26:15 --> 00:26:20

Do they pass over every single day, your maroon

00:26:21 --> 00:26:24

they pass over, they pass by the signs every day,

00:26:26 --> 00:26:31

while home and home or even. And they turn away from the signs.

00:26:33 --> 00:26:33


00:26:35 --> 00:26:36

this is one

00:26:37 --> 00:26:47

this is one of three things that I wanted to speak about. That speaks about a person of disbelief.

00:26:49 --> 00:26:52

A person of this belief, this is one of them.

00:26:53 --> 00:26:59

Allah subhanaw taala he shows signs to us everyday.

00:27:01 --> 00:27:12

Only a person of intellect. Only a person with remembrance. Only a person with Taqwa could be able to see those signs.

00:27:13 --> 00:27:22

And Allah subhanaw taala saying here, okay, you mean is it? And what what signs what, of the many signs that I provided for them?

00:27:23 --> 00:27:24

Which one

00:27:26 --> 00:27:29

of the signs that Allah has from the heavens and the earth,

00:27:30 --> 00:27:34

not just not just one, not just on this earth, but as well as the heavens,

00:27:35 --> 00:27:36

which one of them

00:27:38 --> 00:27:41

that they pass by every single day of their life?

00:27:44 --> 00:27:47

Well, home run home or even in the turn away from it,

00:27:48 --> 00:27:50

when we're driving to work,

00:27:51 --> 00:28:00

and we're focused on trying to get to work early, because we left we left home late, you know, characteristics that Muslims shouldn't have anyways, you know,

00:28:02 --> 00:28:35

person who goes who who, who leaves to work late. It trains their heart to be hasty. And they lose, they lose the, the effects of patience, right, if you're doing everything late, and you're just, you're always late, it makes your heart always Hasting. You're always trying to do something quickly, because you're late. If you left early, if you left home early to come to the masjid to pray, your heart will be at ease. If you let work, even if you'd like to work early in the morning, you can possibly think about the Quran.

00:28:36 --> 00:28:38

You can possibly think about what's the signs in front of you.

00:28:40 --> 00:28:48

Right? So being late or being haste is is a characteristic of a bliss. Right? So

00:28:49 --> 00:28:49

So again,

00:28:51 --> 00:28:56

the signs in front of us, is there as a reminder for us.

00:28:57 --> 00:29:03

But the only people that can can actually see it are people of intellect

00:29:05 --> 00:29:06

are people who remember Allah.

00:29:07 --> 00:29:09

Like you have a brother

00:29:10 --> 00:29:14

who were just walking to the restaurant, just we're going to the restaurant.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:22

And on the side of the road, he sees he sees a bug.

00:29:23 --> 00:29:24

He sees a bug on the side of the road.

00:29:25 --> 00:29:26

And he stops

00:29:27 --> 00:29:38

and we're all looking and he was gonna wait Why are you stopping for this? Go we're the restaurant is about to close. He says look, there's a bug on the street. Like,

00:29:39 --> 00:29:44

what are you what are you talking about? Like this bug? Allah made me see this bug.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:47

And you guys just kept going.

00:29:49 --> 00:29:50

So we're like, what's going on?

00:29:51 --> 00:29:58

He says this bug. I have not seen this bug in over 10 years in my life.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:00

10 years.

00:30:02 --> 00:30:15

And if I was rushing to the restaurant, like how you guys were rushing through just wanting to make sure you go in the restaurant before it closes, if all I thought about was the restaurants, I will never see this bug again. Possibly.

00:30:17 --> 00:30:20

But after 10 years, Allah made me see this bug.

00:30:22 --> 00:30:25

Like, okay, I'm gonna you've done it. Let's go.

00:30:27 --> 00:30:29

Right now if you think about this brother

00:30:32 --> 00:30:33

he remembered

00:30:34 --> 00:30:37

the last time Allah showed shown him an idea.

00:30:39 --> 00:30:41

An idea from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:30:42 --> 00:30:44

The last time you seen his bow was 10 years ago.

00:30:46 --> 00:30:49

An idea that Allah allowed him to see.

00:30:51 --> 00:30:53

He was able to see because he had taqwa and Allah

00:30:55 --> 00:30:57

something so simple.

00:30:58 --> 00:31:02

Now, every single day, when we wake up,

00:31:03 --> 00:31:04

we hear the voices of our children.

00:31:07 --> 00:31:09

What if Allah took our hearing from us?

00:31:11 --> 00:31:13

Every day when we wake up for Fudger

00:31:14 --> 00:31:16

we hear the chirping of

00:31:17 --> 00:31:18


00:31:19 --> 00:31:24

How many of us wake up that early to hear chirping crickets?

00:31:25 --> 00:31:36

Actually, I don't know. We live in the city. I don't know there's crickets anywhere in the city. i But you know what I mean, like roosters Raisa you don't hear roosters anymore, because we don't live in the farms. Right.

00:31:37 --> 00:31:42

But if we so you know, like, recently, I

00:31:43 --> 00:31:49

I went to the outskirts of I went to Lacey. And in the farm area.

00:31:51 --> 00:31:55

I went to go slaughter for earlier, the past that we just went

00:31:58 --> 00:32:19

you realize something where when you live in the city, I spoke to us before but when you live in a city long enough, there are things that you are deprived of. There are things that you just don't see anymore. Right? Unfortunately, one of those things is the most beautiful thing that Allah gives us.

00:32:20 --> 00:32:21

The sunrise

00:32:24 --> 00:32:26

just a sunrise. You know, when you go prefer

00:32:27 --> 00:32:44

when you're praying Fajr and you're sitting in the masjid. Actually, there's there's there's some stories of the self of the past, where after fajr they would go and sit on like a hilltop mountaintop. And they would make their morning thinking outside

00:32:46 --> 00:32:50

until they wants to set the sun rise.

00:32:51 --> 00:32:53

When was the last time you seen that?

00:32:54 --> 00:33:11

Being in the city we have like tall buildings are stuck at home. You know we're in the masjid and just the machine in the past they didn't have a roof. They didn't have, you know, the things that we have. Their walls were just branches. They're able to see the creation of Allah.

00:33:13 --> 00:33:29

We're restricted so much so that is so difficult, just just living normal daily life is difficult for us to remember Allah because of the signs that he gives us every single day. We cover ourselves from it.

00:33:31 --> 00:33:36

And Allah subhanaw taala saying here, what can you mean anything for summer? Well, it will have

00:33:38 --> 00:33:48

which of the signs that Allah gives abundantly for us that we pass by every single day? In we're heedless of it. We don't pay attention.

00:33:50 --> 00:33:53

Not Allah Subhan Allah is telling the Quraysh

00:33:54 --> 00:33:57

in we're here 2023.

00:33:58 --> 00:34:01

And we're hearing these is being read to us.

00:34:03 --> 00:34:09

Imagine how deprived the remembrance of Allah even though we don't want to.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:13

If we go out right now we look at the sky, just looking.

00:34:14 --> 00:34:18

Even if we don't want to sometimes Allah reminds us then in there,

00:34:20 --> 00:34:23

right then and there, we just see the clouds and like yo Allah.

00:34:24 --> 00:34:28

That cloud, just like the brother who seen the bug, that cloud

00:34:30 --> 00:34:32

only Allah allowed me to see that cloud.

00:34:33 --> 00:34:41

After this, after another second is going to shift to a different, you know, a different form of cloud is going to look differently.

00:34:42 --> 00:34:46

But the fact that it looks the way it looked when I saw it, Allah allowed me to see that.

00:34:48 --> 00:34:55

You know, those pictures where they say they take a picture of the cloud. And then the cloud is literally like it looks like Allah. Right?

00:34:56 --> 00:34:59

Five seconds later or maybe 20 seconds later, the wind is gonna blow them

00:35:00 --> 00:35:05

nobody's gonna see it again. The person who took that picture Allah, Allah allowed that person to, to see that

00:35:07 --> 00:35:08

a reminder of Allah.

00:35:10 --> 00:35:17

So be be aware of your surroundings and all of the signs that Allah gives us.

00:35:19 --> 00:35:25

If you go a day, without remembering Allah is the day of waste.

00:35:27 --> 00:35:33

It's a day where your heart becomes harder because you're not remembered you're not reminded by Allah.

00:35:34 --> 00:35:55

So Allah is telling the Quraysh how many he's he's still speaking to the Prophet. He's not really he's not directly, he's indirectly referring to the Quraysh how many signs do they do we provide for them in this in the heavens and earth? Do they pass by every day, then?

00:35:57 --> 00:36:02

Well home and have already done and they just, they don't pay heed to it right

00:36:10 --> 00:36:12

now, another point I want to bring up

00:36:13 --> 00:36:14

is the second point

00:36:15 --> 00:36:22

of a disbeliever. Now we mentioned that the Quraysh as this believers,

00:36:23 --> 00:36:28

the they don't pay heed to the miracles and that is

00:36:30 --> 00:36:34

that is shown in front of them present time right now.

00:36:37 --> 00:36:47

In the spirit of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know that two Quraysh had the audacity to go ask the Prophet Muhammad I sent him for assignment.

00:36:49 --> 00:36:58

And they did it jokingly. They said you know what? If you're a true prophet, show us a sign tell your Lord go tell tells Allah

00:36:59 --> 00:37:06

to show us a sign and then you know, we see a sign we'll believe just like the the the nations before like Salah had a sunnah.

00:37:07 --> 00:37:14

Same thing. Son had his he was approached by his nation, said if you're a true prophet,

00:37:16 --> 00:37:16

give us a sign.

00:37:18 --> 00:37:19

says what sign do you want to see?

00:37:20 --> 00:37:24

The Rock? When they split the rock? What did it become

00:37:25 --> 00:37:27

a huge she camel.

00:37:28 --> 00:37:35

And after witnessing the sign right in front of them. They disbelieve still, they still disbelief.

00:37:37 --> 00:37:40

And what the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam in Surah two comma

00:37:41 --> 00:37:44

when Allah splits the moon,

00:37:45 --> 00:37:47

at the request of the Quraysh,

00:37:48 --> 00:37:55

not just haphazardly but at the request of the Quraysh Allah split the moon right in front of for them to see.

00:37:57 --> 00:37:57

And what happened,

00:37:59 --> 00:38:00

they still have yet to believe.

00:38:04 --> 00:38:07

So a sign that is given to them.

00:38:08 --> 00:38:11

By Allah subhanaw taala at their request,

00:38:12 --> 00:38:16

how hard does a heart have to be?

00:38:17 --> 00:38:19

If Allah gives you a sign and you don't pay attention,

00:38:21 --> 00:38:26

Allah gives you a sign every single day. And we don't we don't believe in Allah.

00:38:29 --> 00:38:31

At least we say Subhana Allah

00:38:33 --> 00:38:33

at the least.

00:38:36 --> 00:38:37


00:38:39 --> 00:38:42

in the next area, and I want to come up to kind of leading up to the third.

00:38:44 --> 00:38:51

The third kind of characteristic, if I would, I would, I would say characteristic of a disbeliever.

00:38:52 --> 00:39:00

Alas, Fernando says when you know, Federal Home Billahi while in LA our home was shaken. And also Nautilus is here.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:05

And most of them are not going to believe anyways. They're not going to be believe in Allah

00:39:07 --> 00:39:10

while they are associating partners with him.

00:39:11 --> 00:39:20

Now, the problem with the Quraysh, right, as we mentioned before, is that their problem is not a problem with believing Allah

00:39:21 --> 00:39:27

will whom wash the coin. They associate associate partners with Allah.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:30

There's a point that I want to make here

00:39:31 --> 00:39:32

is that

00:39:33 --> 00:39:34


00:39:37 --> 00:39:39

Currently we might not have this problem.

00:39:40 --> 00:39:42

We might not associate partners with Allah.

00:39:44 --> 00:39:45


00:39:47 --> 00:39:54

the things that we do is arguably almost equivalent to what they're doing.

00:39:55 --> 00:39:56

And what is that

00:39:59 --> 00:40:00

the things that we

00:40:00 --> 00:40:01

prioritize in our life.

00:40:02 --> 00:40:07

The things that we have first that we put first before Allah Subhana Allah

00:40:08 --> 00:40:09

is this dunya

00:40:10 --> 00:40:12

is love of this dunya

00:40:13 --> 00:40:20

love of wealth, and we seek happiness through this dunya and we don't seek happiness through Allah.

00:40:22 --> 00:40:31

Doesn't that remind? Isn't that similar to somebody seeking answers or seeking happiness through an idol?

00:40:33 --> 00:40:34


00:40:35 --> 00:40:36

is money

00:40:37 --> 00:40:47

and fame. Unfortunately, the majority of people nowadays are so blinded by what's what this dunya can give us

00:40:48 --> 00:40:51

that we don't see the akhirah we just don't see it.

00:40:53 --> 00:40:56

Why? Because we're blinded by this dunya.

00:40:57 --> 00:41:01

Now whether whether or not we want to call it the worshiping, worshiping,

00:41:02 --> 00:41:18

money worshiping power, worshiping fame, we idolize people who, who has these things. Right? Like, yeah, we don't, you know, obviously, we don't wish for money we don't make so do to it.

00:41:19 --> 00:41:29

But we look up to people who have money. We idolize them. We want to be, you know, we want to be with them. We want to be them.

00:41:30 --> 00:41:55

whatever they're doing, we're following them. We're following their footsteps. But how how does he get rich? what stocks to see by? How does he How does he you know, how does he wake up? And what's his, you know, his, what does he do in the daily life to get to where he's getting? I want to follow what he's doing. So that I can be with him. I can be like him. That's that's idolizing people who worships money.

00:41:57 --> 00:42:07

So in a way, we're prioritizing prioritizing those things and those people over what Allah has to give us.

00:42:09 --> 00:42:16

If that's not, if that's not all common practices of worshiping something, then I don't know what it is.

00:42:18 --> 00:42:22

All of these things that we're doing is common practice of somebody who's worshipping an idol.

00:42:24 --> 00:42:32

You wake up, you feed the idols, you see, like the Buddhists, right? They wake up, they actually give money to the idol.

00:42:33 --> 00:42:40

They give food to the idols, they're doing whatever it takes to seek happiness from a stone.

00:42:42 --> 00:42:49

In reality, we're doing the same exact thing, to money to power to this dunya.

00:42:52 --> 00:42:52

Well, whom,

00:42:53 --> 00:42:58

in law, Homer Shikun and all they do is they associate partners with Allah.

00:43:00 --> 00:43:07

They're making a law leveled with something else. What we're doing, we're putting something over Allah.

00:43:08 --> 00:43:11

And that's money, fame, power, this dunya

00:43:12 --> 00:43:14

May Allah protect us from that?

00:43:16 --> 00:43:17


00:43:19 --> 00:43:20

I want to share something.

00:43:22 --> 00:43:27

During the Great Depression, during I think it was the 1920s. Right? The Great Depression.

00:43:29 --> 00:43:30

If we were to

00:43:32 --> 00:43:35

interview somebody who was living during that time,

00:43:37 --> 00:43:54

um, will ask him, How was the Great Depression? How's your daily life? What did you do to survive? I heard that you guys had to wait in like, long lines that are like two, three miles, just waiting to get barley, or grains of rice.

00:43:55 --> 00:43:57

I heard was so bad. In fact,

00:43:58 --> 00:44:02

in by 1993, or 1933,

00:44:03 --> 00:44:07

almost 12 million people.

00:44:08 --> 00:44:19

We're out of we're out of the job. Didn't work. 12 million people in America alone. 12 million people did not have a job.

00:44:20 --> 00:44:26

So poverty was was at its pinnacle. During that time. Nobody had money.

00:44:28 --> 00:44:39

Right? You can you can imagine the anxiety and then just this distress that people have during that time, then they have money. So they had to find other means to survive.

00:44:40 --> 00:44:46

Right? So if we were to interview somebody, how did you survive during that time? You know what they would say?

00:44:48 --> 00:44:49

They would just say like,

00:44:50 --> 00:44:59

we just eat from the crops. We wake up and just, you know, whatever we grew, we just eat it from there. Whatever we had, we just take it every day.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:06

was a new day. And every day, we just kind of did whatever we did to survive. It was simple.

00:45:07 --> 00:45:10

Now, the reason why I want to share this is because

00:45:14 --> 00:45:18

American psychology or just kind of American mentality

00:45:20 --> 00:45:29

we have been duped, we have been taught that if we don't have a job

00:45:32 --> 00:45:36

it's it's devastating. If we don't have money,

00:45:37 --> 00:45:39

that's all that's it, life is over.

00:45:41 --> 00:45:43

If a person goes bankrupt,

00:45:45 --> 00:45:47

their stress level goes over the roof.

00:45:49 --> 00:45:55

If they've if, if the bank, something happens to the bank, and all their money is gone,

00:45:56 --> 00:45:58

they feel like they would rather die.

00:45:59 --> 00:46:11

Like, recently, not recently, but when the stock stock market crashed, you had Americans jumping out of tall buildings committing suicide.

00:46:13 --> 00:46:19

Why? Because they thought that their life was over. Because they didn't have money anymore.

00:46:20 --> 00:46:30

You know, the great, great depression, the way that Americans were living, you know, they wake up, they, whatever they planted, they ate, whatever their farm had a from it.

00:46:33 --> 00:46:38

That's day to day life was actually International.

00:46:39 --> 00:46:40

That's how people lived.

00:46:41 --> 00:46:42

That's normal.

00:46:44 --> 00:46:47

That was normal day to day life for everybody in the world.

00:46:49 --> 00:46:54

But we are taught now that if we don't have money, that's it is over.

00:46:56 --> 00:46:58

You should kill yourself. jump off a building.

00:47:00 --> 00:47:07

The American mentality is so toxic. That's money is truly power.

00:47:09 --> 00:47:11

If you don't have money, your life is over.

00:47:13 --> 00:47:16

Who said that we need money to live?

00:47:18 --> 00:47:26

Who taught us that? Why do we need money? Why can we just grow or like you know, live simple, like the rest of the world live?

00:47:28 --> 00:47:30

But no, we're tricks.

00:47:32 --> 00:47:34

Without money just gonna life.

00:47:36 --> 00:47:38

Doesn't that sound like a god

00:47:40 --> 00:47:42

or a deity that people search for?

00:47:43 --> 00:47:49

Or some something that you need to have? If you don't have it? There's no reason to live.

00:47:51 --> 00:47:54

It's just like us. If we don't have a lot,

00:47:56 --> 00:47:57

I would say there's no reason to live.

00:47:59 --> 00:48:01

If we don't have Islam, I would rather

00:48:02 --> 00:48:04

I would rather not live

00:48:06 --> 00:48:08

doesn't that sound similar to

00:48:10 --> 00:48:14

the American Tality money is their God.

00:48:15 --> 00:48:18

Truly, without it, they would rather die.

00:48:21 --> 00:48:22

And the great depression is proof of it.

00:48:23 --> 00:48:30

Why? Cuz you have Americans during the Great, the Great Depression lasted for 10 years.

00:48:31 --> 00:48:36

Americans they lived a simple life rest of the world.

00:48:38 --> 00:48:44

So money has come into a society. Corrupt is a means of living.

00:48:45 --> 00:48:46

We have to do that.

00:48:48 --> 00:48:51

But it's different when you just go and seek money

00:48:52 --> 00:49:12

for the means of living rather than seeking money to gain something from it. Gain word worldly happiness, or just being solely focused on gaining money and gaining money. When it takes you away from the remembrance of Allah that's how you know that there's something wrong with it.

00:49:14 --> 00:49:35

If money or your job or anything else takes you away from the remembrance of Allah, that's a problem. Whether it's games whether it's a hobby, whether it's something that you you interact with every single day even it was Halloween, but if it takes you away from the rim masala

00:49:36 --> 00:49:36

there's a problem

00:49:41 --> 00:49:41

I am number

00:49:43 --> 00:49:45

107 And we ended up Mr. Sharma

00:49:48 --> 00:49:59

last month MSS FM you know a year to home last year at one min either Billa Oh, to Homosassa to below that time we're homeless Sharon

00:50:00 --> 00:50:02

Now, this is the third

00:50:03 --> 00:50:09

lesson of the law says, speaking about the Quraysh Do they feel safe?

00:50:11 --> 00:50:12

Do they feel secure?

00:50:14 --> 00:50:14


00:50:16 --> 00:50:20

a covering punishment in overwhelming torments

00:50:22 --> 00:50:28

will not take them will not overtake them. Do they feel safe from that punishment?

00:50:30 --> 00:50:35

Or out at your home sad and both both at home

00:50:37 --> 00:50:45

or the sign the last day will come to them when they least know it.

00:50:46 --> 00:50:47

When they least expect it.

00:50:49 --> 00:50:57

Well, Hola, Sharon. And they don't they don't even feel it. They don't even they don't even have any idea that is coming.

00:50:58 --> 00:51:07

So they're talking to Allah Samantha here is talking to the puppet masters I'm seeing about two Quraysh Do they feel safe from my punishments?

00:51:09 --> 00:51:11

Now Allah has wanted to use the word of last year.

00:51:12 --> 00:51:19

In the last year, when you hear this word, it should make your your hair stand.

00:51:21 --> 00:51:24

When Allah subhanaw taala says hello take it Have you thought last year

00:51:26 --> 00:51:27

last year, the word of last year

00:51:29 --> 00:51:37

in Arabic means to cover something to completely envelop or take over. Right so Allah Subhan Allah says.

00:51:39 --> 00:51:45

He says sort of he says, Yo, yo see Leila. And you'll see later

00:51:47 --> 00:51:53

that the next is completely taken over the day.

00:51:54 --> 00:51:55

When when

00:51:56 --> 00:51:57


00:51:59 --> 00:52:03

it vanishes? Is it there? Do you see the day is completely gone?

00:52:05 --> 00:52:14

It completely overwhelms. So when Allah subhanaw taala says about his punishment, Allah explaining his punishment as a ha Shia.

00:52:17 --> 00:52:19

It's just strike fear to our heart.

00:52:20 --> 00:52:24

When Allah's punishment is completely overwhelming,

00:52:25 --> 00:52:35

that is something that is something that's something that we should fear. And Allah is splendid, explaining, do they feel secure about this type of punishment?

00:52:36 --> 00:52:38

They can, they can go anywhere on Earth.

00:52:40 --> 00:52:42

But my punishment will be overwhelming,

00:52:43 --> 00:52:44

no matter where you are.

00:52:46 --> 00:52:50

Then he says, oh, to Homosassa to Bogota

00:52:51 --> 00:52:59

or the day of judgment that will come suddenly, when you least expect it.

00:53:01 --> 00:53:07

The day of judgment where nobody has any any form of

00:53:08 --> 00:53:18

of warning that is coming is going to come when we least expect it to be feel safe from the day.

00:53:19 --> 00:53:20

That's what Allah has asked me here.

00:53:23 --> 00:53:43

And he says he kind of says it twice. He says it he says a Sarah turbo Jota say I do both a ton a day in which it comes suddenly. We're home now. Yeah, Sharon. And then they least expect it is like a compound way of saying like, is going to come and you have no idea.

00:53:44 --> 00:53:47

When it comes, you have no idea.

00:53:48 --> 00:53:55

No idea when it's coming and when you when it does come you are going to be completely caught off guard.

00:53:58 --> 00:54:00

That's today. No more Damn.

00:54:02 --> 00:54:07

Something that should just strike fear in our hearts wish to hear the name of Allah.

00:54:08 --> 00:54:25

And we hear Allah being so kind, always being there. Being there at the exact and rights mum went when Yusuf alayhi salam needed him most. When our Prophet Muhammad Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam needed Allah Most.

00:54:26 --> 00:54:28

But don't forget my brothers.

00:54:29 --> 00:54:34

When Allah comes with a punishment, indeed is a last year

00:54:36 --> 00:54:37

is overwhelming.

00:54:38 --> 00:54:42

It will completely Ill Ill take you by surprise.

00:54:43 --> 00:54:53

That's the day when we will know. The anger of Allah is something that we don't want to deal with. Yes, the Rama of Allah is more than his anger.

00:54:55 --> 00:54:56

But do we want to try?

00:54:57 --> 00:54:59

Do we want to test Allah's Anger?

00:55:00 --> 00:55:02

When we say prayer, do we want to test Allah?

00:55:05 --> 00:55:09

When we when we see something haram, do you want to test that day?

00:55:11 --> 00:55:17

Do if when we when we, when we pass a red light, and nobody's around us?

00:55:18 --> 00:55:22

Do we want to test Allah? Do we want to test the anger?

00:55:25 --> 00:55:27

When he explains Young will Liam

00:55:29 --> 00:55:33

it should make our hair stand out of fear of Allah.

00:55:34 --> 00:55:35

Now I mentioned the three

00:55:37 --> 00:55:40

of us disbeliever, specifically talking about the cordage.

00:55:43 --> 00:55:50

What they did, and the few is after this will solidify what I'm about to say,

00:55:51 --> 00:55:52

a disbeliever.

00:55:53 --> 00:55:58

Not only they turn away, and they disbelieve

00:55:59 --> 00:56:08

in the signs of Allah that's present in their daily life. The is that the maroon Allah, but that they pass by every single day.

00:56:09 --> 00:56:13

They turn away from it, they are heedless of it. Secondly,

00:56:14 --> 00:56:22

that I asked are given to them. I'm sorry, that I Yes. That were shown to them of the past.

00:56:23 --> 00:56:39

They know the story of solid. They know what happened to the nations of the past. They know the punishment that came down upon these people. They know that because Salah and hood, are our prophets who are out

00:56:41 --> 00:56:55

and the Quraysh knew about them. In fact, their lands, they passed by it. The remnants of those people, assembled and add, are left there as a sign of the past.

00:56:57 --> 00:57:02

And they know of their stories, yet, they're heedless of it, they deny it.

00:57:03 --> 00:57:11

So they don't deny it the Ayat of Allah presently and in deny the Ayat of Allah in the past.

00:57:13 --> 00:57:15

And they also deny

00:57:17 --> 00:57:22

what is going to come to them overwhelming torment

00:57:23 --> 00:57:35

in the area of a future punishment is coming, that's eminent that is bound to come, for sure, I will tell to whom Bogota

00:57:36 --> 00:57:38

is for sure going to come.

00:57:40 --> 00:57:41


00:57:42 --> 00:57:54

if we are heedless, and if we deny the AI that's right in front of us, that is that has been revealed to us. And that is that is coming to us

00:57:55 --> 00:58:01

use you understand the hearts of these people to Quraysh

00:58:03 --> 00:58:06

their hearts was so hard

00:58:07 --> 00:58:12

that all of the is in the heavens in the earth.

00:58:13 --> 00:58:20

The is that was shown to them in a pass and that I asked to Allah revealed to them here.

00:58:22 --> 00:58:23

And yet they still don't believe

00:58:25 --> 00:58:26

you know,

00:58:28 --> 00:58:29

we as Muslims,

00:58:30 --> 00:58:31

we are aware

00:58:33 --> 00:58:34

of every single area

00:58:36 --> 00:58:38

that has been revealed to Quraysh.

00:58:41 --> 00:58:44

And we are aware of the idea of the Quran

00:58:47 --> 00:58:48


00:58:50 --> 00:58:51

we deny it.

00:58:54 --> 00:59:03

We didn't we're How can we deny and ignore and our heedless through to this Quran?

00:59:06 --> 00:59:15

How can we do that? When Allah subhanaw taala is telling a perfect example, the Quraysh that denied everything.

00:59:16 --> 00:59:18

Are we at the same level of the Quraysh.

00:59:20 --> 00:59:24

Unfortunately, a lot of people are and we call ourselves Muslims.

00:59:26 --> 00:59:28

The whole our La Quwata illa biLlah.

00:59:29 --> 00:59:59

I asked Allah to prevent us from not understanding his his book. I asked Allah to prevent us to have a heart that is similar to the heart of the Kurdish I asked Allah to enlighten us with the Quran, to give it to our hearts and give us the understanding of the Quran. And ask Allah is the one who controls our hearts to keep our heart firm on his Deen through the Quran through reading the Quran through understanding

01:00:00 --> 01:00:12

His words and the lessons that he teaches us are some Allahu ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala and he was happy as marine what is akmola Hi Paula Jota Anna and

01:00:15 --> 01:00:16
