He was so happy as you may know, but today in sha Allah to Allah We continue from where we left off

00:00:06 --> 00:00:07

two weeks ago

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

Tafseer of social Hadid and we are stopped at I believe we recited up to 24 but I did not explain the 23rd or 24th I have the sort I just recited them with you and then maybe gave a basic understanding of the wording and then I said we will talk about it inshallah. Next week, I didn't remember that I was not going to be away, and then and he's like, okay, that ended up being away. So today inshallah we'll talk about what the what these verses mean, inshallah. Now, probably, if not this week, then next week, we'll conclude sorbitol Hadid, like we'll complete the series. And what I'll do is I'll do a bit of a

00:00:46 --> 00:01:29

summary of the videos that we've done so far, it's taken a little bit a little over a year, we've done two seasons with calf two now Hadid and the goal of course of this Hanukkah is to actually go from off to a nurse to actually explain the last four of the Quran, what is better known as animal fossil. And these su are for sure, extremely important because they, they do a summary there the word Mufasa means the comprehensive and what it's referring to is the fact that Allah subhanaw taala within a small number of verses are a sort of, or as soon as he subhanaw taala basically summarizes all that, which you need to know. So you can go and recite Surah Baqarah for example, and get the

00:01:29 --> 00:01:36

the full scope or you can take a smaller sutra that maybe gives you gives it to you in a more condensed or concentrated dose

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

for the same.

00:01:40 --> 00:01:55

And I'll what I'll do is I'll summarize a little bit what that cluster from cough to and Hadid is because the way that these last four are from cough to a nurse are divided, it's almost exactly by Joseph. So from off to an Adidas one cluster, and FMO J Dilla. To Tarim is the second and then from a month to

00:01:56 --> 00:02:31

more salad is the third and then from ama to the end and and just um, of course it's four sections on its own. And that's how it's kind of clumped up or, or categorized. And, and they do, and they are very diverse. They cover almost everything within Islam. That's why once we start with the Ninja, you'll see that if you've been attending this with me for the last year, then you will find that the moment we start with talking with God, then it's a completely different narrative like the the pace changes, the topics that are being talked about change the way they're being talked about change because they're all Madani sutras, and they're all mostly late ministers mostly, or mid mid

00:02:31 --> 00:03:03

to late Metheny sutras. On the other hand, what we, what we've been recited together from above to a hadith are all murky sutras. And most of them are pretty early McKee sutras, most of them aside maybe from najem, and ramen, most of them are pretty, are pretty early ones. So they came, they were revealed to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam in the early part of his prophecy. So you can imagine that the narrative will differ within the book of Allah subhanaw taala, from the Sunnah that was revealed to the Prophet Allah is on the first two years of privacy versus the end of his life out of your salatu salam after the after the Islamic State had already been established, and a couple of

00:03:04 --> 00:03:36

Vasa had been occurred, and some people have had died for the sake of Allah. And there's been a lot of events took place. So you can you'll see there's a difference in terms of the approach, and then a difference in the themes and the topics that are going to be talked about. But they're still very much relevant to our life today. And that's why I actually do these tours. And it's not because I've done them before. And you can say, well, now you're just getting lazy. No, it's really, I really do think it's important that that you that every Muslim knows the meanings of the sutras from cough to illness. I don't think everyone is destined to be a hospital. And I think that's okay. I don't think

00:03:36 --> 00:04:12

everyone has to be a half or has to know that they've seen every single ayah in the Quran. I don't I honestly don't think that's possible for every human being. But you should have a specific portion and asleep, you should know something of the Quran, there shouldn't be some structural or systematic approach to what you should know of the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. So that you can connect, you can comprehend and then you have your your values, your principles, and your basic understandings of Islam in a row, and you and you have that clarity. And I really think a great an amazing way is just from Mufasa that's why they were called that they're actually the last word just

00:04:13 --> 00:04:43

I mean it children begin to memorize the Quran, usually they start from soup to nuts and make their way up. So most of you, at some point in your lives must have tried to memorize these sutras or you know, memorizing forgot them. So really what I'm doing is I'm explaining them slowly, so that if you're not doing any effort of memorizing the Quran at all, then just once a week, memorize the few sort of verses I talked about here, do that with me. If you did this with me from when I told you to in February last year, then by now you would have a user would have a full gist of the Quran. Right?

00:04:45 --> 00:05:00

And if you didn't do that, and you don't know them, now you don't. So a year has passed so another year will pass and we'll be at W and if you take once a week and do the three or four verses that remember I remember that we recite memorizing throughout the week you end up with something is better than nothing.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:33

thing, always even baby steps are good, even if you're doing something simple will is helpful. And this is not to take away from Yanni your ambition, if you want to be a hustler intention, no, if you're doing that, may Allah bless, we're here to help you. But if you're not, and if you're a bit older, and if memorization is not your stronghold, and if you memorize, if your brain is like a horrible part of the water, one part, it just comes through the holes and nothing stays in, then the three or four, if that we recite it within a setting, memorize them throughout the week, I'm pretty sure you can end up holding on to them till the end of the year to the end of the week. And they can

00:05:33 --> 00:06:01

build on that. And it feels really nice. When you have a full suit and you have it well. And you know what it means. It's nice if you can reset, so it'll come out. And you know exactly what the theme is, what is trying what it's trying to explain what the goal of this surah is, you understand the stories you understand the symbolism of the stories, and you can connect to it, that's when it next time you stand up to pray, instead of you know, running through and now political Costa Nicola had, you're gonna read maybe a part of that Surah that you don't memorize that you understand that you have some connection to, it's nice, it's actually very, I'm inviting you to try this if you

00:06:01 --> 00:06:33

haven't already done so. It's really, it really is meaningful, it doesn't make a difference. So let's go through that. So I'm not going to repeat all that today. I'll do that show next time or the time after, depending on how long it takes for me to finish to to Hadid. But once we're done this, just this first cluster, I will summarize it for you. In case you missed everything before that, and then we'll start after that's what the majority be the light on, which is a completely again, a new a new approach altogether. There, there are a lot of fun, like the Second Coming up, is just very enjoyable. Because it's stories, it's a lot of stories. We don't we didn't have a lot of stories in

00:06:33 --> 00:07:04

this cluster, from foster Hadid. How many stories go through a path that he actually had maybe a couple of verses that were maybe two stories very, very short, just a couple of lines. Then he goes through the tour, almost no stories at all. You go to suit at the gym. Yeah, one story of El Mirage, that's pretty much it, you go to a comma, you have a couple of stories very short, very condensed one. At one point of the story we talked, we told them quickly about nine hours, no stories, locked out, almost has no stories. And he doesn't really have many stories either. But then you go to the next user. And there's just things that were happening to the sahaba. And Quran that was being

00:07:04 --> 00:07:39

revealed. And there's a story behind it. There's an actual event that occurred that is worthy of your contemplation, because it's very relevant to our daily daily lives. So it bloodied? If so it just this cluster is the cluster of options, or the cluster of decision making, or you have two things you have to make a decision. But are you someone who believes in righteousness is that something matters to you? Is righteousness and the path of it that leads to gender something that you want to be a part of or no? Then you have to make a decision early on in your life. What do you stand for? What do you stand for? What is your life about? Do you care for purposefulness? And so to

00:07:39 --> 00:08:11

that you do care for guidance and neutral thought you care for certainty of knowledge to make your decisions and so to najem? Do you care for bounties and both karma and ramen? Do you understand that if you do not acknowledge them, and if you're not thankful to them? What happens in both situations, what type of person do you want to be on the Day of Judgment, so to work out, so it doesn't tell you choose one of two things No, to God, he tells you, okay, these two things seem to be opposites. They're not. They're not spirituality, materialism, they're not, you need both. You need a Valhalla and about them, you need the apparent apparent the appearance and you need the essence, you need

00:08:11 --> 00:08:45

both. And if you try to live life with one of them and not the other, you will ruin your narrative and you will fail, you will fail big time, your understanding of Islam will be faulted, it will be wrong. And that and the fault within your understanding of Islam will trickle through everything will affect you. And they will affect those whom you teach, and then it'll just continuously this, this negative effect will keep this ripple effect will just keep on going. And that a lot of the problems that we struggle with today in our Muslim come from what sorts of hadith is talking about, here's why I think I spent the longest time in any and all the students talking about this one. And

00:08:45 --> 00:09:14

I think it's very, very relevant. I think we struggle with that. I think we don't have a good balance between the mechanics and the spirituality. I don't think we have a good I think it's a prime example of southern Africa. I don't think we have a balance. I think it's all mechanics, there's no spirituality. I think some people claim that they have spirituality with God, but they've never prayed to one of the five pillars in their lives and don't intend to. And I think both approaches are wrong. And both approaches will take you to a place you don't want to be in the Day of Judgment because you didn't listen to what Allah subhanaw was actually explaining. I think an

00:09:14 --> 00:09:49

Omega and Omega cannot stand if it does not have values, which are the essence and wealth, which is the materialistic aspect. I don't think an American stand I don't think a community can be productive if we don't have values, principles, beliefs that we carry very closely and very, you know, secretly to our hearts, and wealth, and strength and status and numbers that allow that to actually materialize into something meaningful. So so if you look at it, every aspect of life requires these two things to happen hand in hand. And that's what sutra had he talks about and it did it beautifully majestically. And I'll summarize that for you and show once you come to the end

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

of it. But here's the verses that we recited last time that didn't explain. He says to pound Allah or FOB I mean, we'll see but in philosophy well fer and Fujiko electric ytterbium Cordelia Navarro, he says

00:10:01 --> 00:10:37

There is no calamity, typical Ceiba because that's really what you care about. None of us are questioning God when good things happen to us. No one turns to God and say, Why? Why? Why all the money? Why me? Why all the success? Why me no one does that if your things work out for you, you're happy, you don't even need that. But it's when calamity occurs, that becomes a little bit, that's when the question happened, which is really weird. Because life is just a mix of one of two things. Either things go well, or they don't. Even if you're not religious at all, at each given moment, either things work out the way you want them to, or they don't. And there's really no way for you

00:10:37 --> 00:10:45

to, to ensure that life is gonna give you every single time the bouquet of roses that you're hoping for, it's going to be a curveball

00:10:46 --> 00:11:17

or an obstacle or a landmine, there's always gonna be something in the way that you didn't you didn't foresee and you can't do anything about it. That's how it is. But you understand Allah subhanaw taala and you believe in Allah and you acknowledge him, then he is interested in putting out for you within the Hadith, this sutra where you have to balance out your materialistic and spiritual needs, the appearance and the essence of your of your existence and your experience. You're gonna point out for you that will save a piece when a calamity occurs. So he says, No calamity occurs on Earth and

00:11:18 --> 00:11:30

materialistic, whatever you unforeseen come or inside yourself, which is spiritual in earthy kita except it is documented in a Nikita, in a record the word Kitab means record. That's really what it means.

00:11:31 --> 00:12:05

It doesn't mean the book, sometimes give me the chapter but can mean it can mean a group, a group piece of information that is focused on one task. That's really what what I keytab is, that's why if you open your book it for example, you'll find that the way he categorizes his book is kitab. Al Eman kitab. Why kita? Kita? What do you mean get up? It's one kita What do you mean? Oh, no, because really, he doesn't mean book, we started to use it synonymously with book which is fine, but that's not really the usage of the word it means a group a grouped piece of information that are grouped to talk about a specific task or specific issue.

00:12:06 --> 00:12:44

So in laffy Kitab except into in a record that is specified to talk about these things mean publicly and Abraha before we put life on it, her is going back to Earth masala and we'll see but in below, and on earth. So before now, my last name is ill bad or the battery which is the one who offers life, or the one who created life specifically because there are different levels of creation that he talks about subhanaw taala in the Quran, and I'll go into detail on that and suited Hashem when we come to it. But there's there's nothing There's to something this and then there's life. You can have something you have things you can have floating dead things all over the place. Fine. But how

00:12:44 --> 00:13:00

do you go from that to life? That's, that's a big, that's a big, such a big jump. That's a huge, that's a huge journey. Step. So he's probably I never had before we put life on it. All of it was already documented, we knew exactly what all this was going to become and happen.

00:13:01 --> 00:13:03

Now, as I see that you're already thinking things.

00:13:05 --> 00:13:27

Those traditional questions that come up are now coming up in your mind, the ones that you probably shouldn't have, but you do. And we'll try and point out in Nevada guide Allah He Yes, He's indeed that is upon God and point Allah very easy. So why is he telling us this? I always wondered why, why do I need to know that? Like, what why is it that you told us that you know, everything that is going to happen? Because if it didn't tell us that

00:13:29 --> 00:13:52

so many of these useless and endless arguments that we love to have about Kabbalah and fedora and about Allah's knowledge, we wouldn't have to have like, we wouldn't have to have it. You never told us these information. I don't see how this piece of information is making it any different for me. And then I recited this, I'm like, oh, no, there is a point of why he's telling us this. He's not telling us this. So we had these arguments, even though we're gonna have these arguments anyways.

00:13:54 --> 00:14:04

Put five Arab men in a room, leave them for three hours without cards or smoking and they will talk about this. All right, if I'm like, if you're a gambling person, I can put money on it and I'll win.

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

Five Arab men in a room, no cards, no TV, no smoking, leave them come back two hours later, they're fighting over this 100% of the time I have tried this theory.

00:14:15 --> 00:14:32

I have tried this theory I've left I've I've watched it happen. This is what everything comes down to people argue religiously for a few minutes. leave people to talk a bit, don't give them leisure or food or something to do. They start talking after a couple of minutes they talk religion comes in, and then it comes in a few moments later, this jumps out as the biggest problem.

00:14:33 --> 00:14:58

It's really weird that 1400 years later, actually, it's really weird that 6000 years later, or more 10,000 years later, or however long we've been around as human beings, we are still arguing on this issue. Let me make a few points for you so I can move on to get Allah subhanaw taala told us his favorite piece of information. He said I know it all. I guess it is very important. It's very important that he told us this Subhanallah it had to happen here. Of course, of course it did.

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

And I'll tell you why at the end,

00:15:02 --> 00:15:20

he pointed out this piece of information that I know it all. And he had a goal of why he told us that meaning there is a piece, there's a benefit for you knowing that there is a important piece of a benefit for all of us for knowing that which he pointed out in the eye. But before we can actually take that benefit, let's just kind of get rid of some of these thoughts that cause us difficulty.

00:15:21 --> 00:16:06

Of course, he knows it all. Of course, if he didn't, you wouldn't have to worship Him. In general, if he didn't, then it'd be no reason for you to worship God at all. If he did not know all that was going to happen. If you were able to prove that Allah subhanaw taala did not know the future now why worshipping? He's just as ignorant as you are. jelajah Allah Subhanallah taka does Allah trout Allah Who am merciful? Of course, of course, He is Allah. If he didn't know, then he's just a very strong being. He's strong. But he has a weakness, which is what? He doesn't know what's happening next. Just like you just like me, what is the what is the essence of all of our struggles and fears and

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

life? One thing, you don't know what's happening tomorrow. If it was all mapped out for you, then you would maybe be sad for a little bit. When you saw when the graph went down. You get a bit sad. Oh, I'm gonna lose foot on that day. Oh, I'm gonna lose this Dotty. I'm gonna get sick that day. I'm gonna die that day. I know exactly what's happening. I know exactly what's happening. There's no problem. There's nothing. There's no curveballs, no surprises. I don't have to worry about anything anymore. I don't have to worry about making enough money. Now. Don't worry about it. I don't have to worry about anything. This is what's going to happen next. But you don't. It's actually the whole

00:16:39 --> 00:17:00

excitement of this experience. The beauty of this experience is that we don't know what's happening next. You have no idea what's happening tomorrow morning, I have no idea what's waiting, what's in the cards for me. As I move along, I don't know how long I'm going to live. I don't know I'm going to die. That's really the essence of this experience. I don't know. Because I am governed by time and space and governed by time, space, or space time. Call it whatever you like.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:39

Allah is not to Allah, there is no such thing as past, present, or future. He told us this at the beginning of it. Isn't it interesting that intuitively, he told her who Oh, well, when earth He told you first and last because time means nothing avoidable, battling the essence and the appearance because space means nothing, it means nothing to him. None of this means anything. So to Allah subhanaw taala what happened already? What's happening now and what's happening later, so all the same, it's all the same. There's nothing that is not singing to him. Subhana wa Tada. Now you need to understand is that the knowledge of something happening, does not equal. The forcefulness of it's

00:17:39 --> 00:17:40

happened happening

00:17:42 --> 00:18:22

doesn't mean that it's being coerced to happen, unless you believe somehow that the nature of your knowledge is equal to the nature of the knowledge of the Almighty Himself. And that's of course, the problem. The i that the only way I know the future is that my program something has to ask has to have no choice. And to give me that little car after turn the little thing to make sure that the wheels are straight, I put it on a flat surface, I point it towards high justice, I let it go and I predict it's going to slam hydrogen in the foot. Very simple. Because it had no choice was pre programmed, and then let it go. That's how I know the future. So if you believe that your knowledge

00:18:22 --> 00:18:59

is equal to Allah as knowledge and nature, because that's how I know the future that means that's much That must be how Allah knows the future. Okay, then you're equaling yourself to Allah or even worse, you're equaling Allah to yourself, which is even worse, or you saying no, the nature of my knowledge is not equal to the nature of Allah is knowledge, my knowledge, I can only know the future if something is pre programmed to occur, and even then I can only predict it, because it can be so many obstacles and mistakes and challenges and and, and malfunctioning that can can stop it. But Allah subhanaw taala his the nature of his knowledge is that he knows what's happening next. Even

00:18:59 --> 00:19:07

though it's not pre programmed, even though you still have your full freedom of choice. And aside from all of that

00:19:09 --> 00:19:11

philosophical gibberish that I just shared with you.

00:19:13 --> 00:19:17

Yeah, habibi. As you sit here right now. Just think for a moment.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:21

Who is forcing you to do anything right now?

00:19:23 --> 00:19:25

Are you forced to do anything?

00:19:26 --> 00:19:43

Can you do not? Can you not do anything you want? Yes, social structures and social norms will encourage you into behaving in a certain way. But no one's holding you back. If you want to get up right in the middle of this halacha and start something out and walk right No, this talk to you.

00:19:44 --> 00:19:55

I don't encourage that. But that you could easily do that. If you decided to. You could do anything you want. But I'd use it for the human being to sit around and argue how he has no choice

00:19:57 --> 00:19:59

is very weird because as you sit

00:20:00 --> 00:20:36

In this moment, you're recognizing the fact that you have all of these choices in front of you, and you're choosing to do whatever you want. It was one of the weirdest, it's one of the most, I could never understand it growing up. Because you have all these theological sects, like podria, for example, or jabariya, you have groups that believe that we have no choice. And you know, it's all predestined. And that means we're just going to go in whatever direction is predestined for us to go. And everything is already in that. And they believe that and they go through that like, Well, I mean, don't you have like practical real life evidence to kind of counter that by just the fact that

00:20:36 --> 00:21:04

you're able to sit and think about it, and then make whatever choice you want? Yes, we, by the way, our choices are not infinite, I can make choices to I can't, I can't make the choices to fly. I can't grow wings and fly, I would love to, but I can't make that choice. That's not an option for me. We don't have infinite options of choices, we have a certain amount of choice. There are a lot of them. By the way. There are a lot of them, maybe even infinite, some people may say, but certain things are not options for us.

00:21:05 --> 00:21:42

They're not by design. So we've accepted that long time ago. Certain things we can't choose, we can choose not today, we can't choose whom we grew up with. We can't choose where we grew up, who our parents are, what we look like a lot of things we can't choose, we just can't choose them. But there are the things that we do. And we know that we do to argue that we have no choice, it's really weird. The reason that the argument is because they we refuse to accept that Allah subhanaw taala is not similar to Western, we're not similar to Allah. And the anthropomorphism piece that they should be beasts is just held on to by the human mind so so dearly. You have to let it go. We're not like

00:21:42 --> 00:21:44

Allah. That's why he's Allah.

00:21:45 --> 00:21:58

How are we not like him in every way. He's not like us in any way. Jealousy that Allah is beyond the constructs of time and space. I dare you to imagine anything outside of time and space. Go ahead.

00:21:59 --> 00:22:29

You cannot, you can say the words that I just said, meaning you can imagine a concept of something being beyond time and space. But you can't actually imagine anything, or construct a thought that does not exist within time and space, because we are governed by them. When I tell you, Allah subhanaw taala, which is what he told us that beginning at the beginning of the surah, he is not going to explain to you that the nature of his knowledge is not equal to the nature of your knowledge. And the third and final piece of knowledge is not an impactful attribute.

00:22:30 --> 00:22:35

Not an impactful attribute not not an impactful attribute. What does that mean?

00:22:37 --> 00:22:40

Chicken lay eggs. I know that chickens lay eggs.

00:22:42 --> 00:22:49

Whether I know that or not, does not affect the fact that chickens lay eggs if they stop knowing that to chickens not lay eggs anymore.

00:22:50 --> 00:23:11

Chickens start laying eggs the day I knew that they laid No, because knowing something, the knowledge of something does not affect whether it happens or not. It's just it's not really just something that on its own, as the philosophers of the sixth century BCE talked about is something that the human mind struggles with comprehending. Understanding that knowledge

00:23:13 --> 00:23:22

is not an impactful attribute. Allah subhanaw taala Alene he knows all has nothing to do with the fact that you are able to make whatever choices you want.

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

The struggle becomes because No, I can't know the future. Unless it's programmed, then Allah must not be No, no, he can know the future even though it's not programmed because it's not the future to him. It is not the future to him. It's the future to you, not to Allah. If it was the future to Allah subhanaw taala. Again, why would we wouldn't have to have their clothes most others. So go.

00:23:46 --> 00:24:16

Not knowing the future is is a problem. If you're going to worship a deity for what you believe as supreme power, you're going to believe in a God and there has to be he asked him Yeah, he definitely knows the future. So putting that aside, those are the basic arguments. I just, if that's not enough, then honestly, what I found out is that nothing is enough. This you're not you're never gonna be okay with this. And that's just that's just that, but why did he tell us this piece of information? No, there's actually a reason why he told us this piece of information. He didn't tell us his BS information. So we can argue about this forever about whether we have choice or not, which

00:24:16 --> 00:24:20

is a crazy thing to argue but he did it for the following.

00:24:22 --> 00:24:32

Tell us this, Lee kala he uses this terminology, so that you may not so Allah Fattah come over grieve over that which you lost.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:39

What at the frost will be talcum and not to over be overjoyed and that which you were given.

00:24:41 --> 00:24:46

And then he said, Well, Allahu Allah, you Hibou coulomb hotel in the hood, and indeed Allah Subhan Allah does not love

00:24:47 --> 00:24:50

every vein, and arrogant

00:24:51 --> 00:24:53

limo talent for who does not like

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

the vain and the arrogant. This is actually very well done is the

00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

Breaking into folders to me,

00:25:02 --> 00:25:03

is very important. It's very interesting.

00:25:04 --> 00:25:24

See the reason I'm telling you that everything is known to me. There's nothing that I do not know about. And we'll see what's coming your way. Yeah, it was known, I knew it was gonna happen to you, way before it happened way before you ever even created before anything was created, it was in the book that this masiva was going to happen to you.

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

So you can see this is not talking about your choice, it's talking about it. I gave this focus before about cobalt, and Carter, this is not talking about the car, not talking about the Destiny thing that you can affect. If you can affect your destiny, you're gonna affect where you're going. This is talking about the Kabbalah, meaning the stuff that you have no effect over, you enjoy the difference between these two things.

00:25:46 --> 00:26:11

So you're walking down, if you're walking down the streets, and a piano falls over your head, that's called up mean, unless there was a sign saying, pianos are falling over people's head, a deer don't walk on the streets, it was called on, if it said that sign and it was probably further, Allah is the thing that you have no control over, you did not contribute to. It's not the natural consequence of your behaviors. But it happened, it happened.

00:26:12 --> 00:26:24

That's called COBOL. And the examples I gave you are very specific. Listen to these two examples. Driving a car is a 60 kilometers own, driving 60 Your phones in your pocket, you're not drunk.

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

You're not under the influence of any substance, you're looking ahead.

00:26:30 --> 00:26:35

And then something jumps up in front of you and you have an accident and you harm someone or you kill somebody

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


00:26:38 --> 00:26:44

another person in the car 60 kilometer, this person is on their phone. And

00:26:45 --> 00:26:46

they're going at

00:26:47 --> 00:27:02

not focused and then they have an accident about now that's called Are You destined yourself to that you are destined yourself that that is the natural consequence of your behavior, not having an accident that's come up.

00:27:04 --> 00:27:42

When you're recklessly driving, and nothing happens, that's a law, you should have had an accident, you were driving, everything you were doing was wrong. But somehow you made it that's called Allah subhanaw taala gave you the opposite of what you deserved, or opposite of what you had worked towards. That's called law. Now there is when things line up, you study well, you pass further, you study really well, somehow you fail, or the opposite vice versa. You don't study at all, somehow you pass about it's not. You don't pass you don't study you don't pass other confusing, that's okay. I just want you understand that there's things that you have no effect over. It's just, it was given

00:27:42 --> 00:28:01

to you. You didn't do anything. It's COBOL. It's called a and this is what this is talking about, is talking about mastaba. And we'll see but no calamity comes in occurs, talking about this stuff that had nothing to do with. I give examples of this is always a heavy example I've given a couple of times in this halacha or in this setting before to people

00:28:02 --> 00:28:45

at the age of 75 are diagnosed with lung cancer. One person has a 45 year history of smoking, the other one doesn't. Kadar kava, very simple. Not the same thing. This person did nothing. I remember the first person I had to talk to when within my career was a 65 year old marathon runner who had stage four lung cancer, who never smoked a cigarette in his entire life. In his entire life, and he had four months to live, he didn't even make it to four months, he died in three. And although there's no explanation for this, he did nothing. He did nothing. Nothing at all. Just that's what that's the hand he was built. That was the most lever that was in the key term mean public in Nevada

00:28:45 --> 00:29:01

that was in there way before any of this existed that was in the books, there's gonna happen. It's going to happen. You can't control that piece. Easy upon Allah, he has it all documented is going to happen to you. So why? Why is this piece of information important because when something bad happens to you that you did nothing, you did nothing for

00:29:03 --> 00:29:41

it can cause you to become very, very obsessed and preoccupied by what you could have done differently. And it makes you lose your mind. If you can't stop thinking about that. You'll start you'll lose your mind. And if I did this, I'd done that. Even if it's bugger even if you somehow even if you're driving recklessly driving, and you hit the person, it was your fault, because you weren't paying attention even that even that it's in the book before it happened. You you carry a specific amount of responsibility for it for sure. You didn't do it on purpose. Obviously we did it on purpose. That's another thing, but you didn't do it on purpose. It was a mistake. It was

00:29:41 --> 00:29:59

negligence. So you carry a specific amount of responsibility law legally and in front of Allah subhanaw taala. But it's still in the book. Why do I need to know this job? Because he's telling me because if if, if I didn't tell you this, then he would be obsessed by saying low load off the hammer the SharePoint had I done this, only if I did this, only if that

00:30:00 --> 00:30:01

happened only a minute a

00:30:02 --> 00:30:12

decade out so Allah Murtha so we don't over grieve over the things that go wrong. Don't over grieve. You can be sad, you can be upset, you can hold yourself accountable.

00:30:13 --> 00:30:14

You can

00:30:16 --> 00:31:00

you can cry, you can grieve over the bad things that occur. But don't overdo it. Because it was predestined, it was there all along, was a part of your story. It was a part of your story, for better or for worse, was a part of your story was in a book way before any living thing ever came to existence, it was already there. So don't, don't waste too much time. Move on, move on as in. If you did nothing to contribute to it, accept it and say you're like a hunter except I don't like it, I accept it and move on. Or if you did contribute to it to Rob I accept like 100, learn from it. Learn grow from that, accept your responsibility and move on. Don't obsess over it. Because there's

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

nothing to do that wasting of time had I not done this have not done that. For example, the person who got diagnosed with the cancer and was smoked all his life. He can't go back and change that. Sorry, dun, dun. So what does he do?

00:31:15 --> 00:31:36

What he's gonna do spend the rest of his days just hating himself and hating everything about his life and hate and wondering whether he or just say, You know what that happened? I was wrong. I was wrong. I stole Fetullah to Allah yada. Bam. So I repent to you from this most I shouldn't have done that. I contributed to this y'all forgive me.

00:31:37 --> 00:31:47

And then move on. Except what was given to him? What after for a whole token and don't be over joyous over something good that came to you mean, don't feel over deserving of it.

00:31:48 --> 00:31:51

Don't feel over deserving there's something good that came your way.

00:31:53 --> 00:31:57

One of the pet peeves and one of the bane of my existence is when they when I see someone

00:31:59 --> 00:32:04

sitting there being asked about how they succeeded. And they go on this long.

00:32:07 --> 00:32:28

wake up everyday 330 In the morning, cold shower. And you only meet with nothing else and ran for three kilometers and meditated for? Yes, yes. You slept tillable her every day. Everyone who knows you knew that? What are you talking about? I've studied every day at same time. So I never is good to share maybe good good habits. I but I mean,

00:32:30 --> 00:32:37

I mean, we have to be very careful with the reality of our stories. But Allah when you're successful, go back and take a look at your success.

00:32:38 --> 00:33:12

You did this 100 You are clockwise, you were perfect. That's why it worked out for you. Or your god Bailey, you're like six, seven times. And that's how you ended up just making it to the finish line. If you'd be able to do it a couple of times, maybe share that as well. Maybe share it you know, I didn't I tried my best I didn't do too I made all these mistakes. May Allah forgive me. But hamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala granted me success. And maybe when a few things I get well that I think people can benefit 123 And don't do 123 Because those really did cause me a lot of problems. But I got the idea. I was very fortunate. And that's fine. That's a but if you become to deserve it,

00:33:12 --> 00:33:29

that first photo here is an important word photo is not happiness. I know that's how you that's not what it is. But it's not happiness, at least not in the Quran. So for example, when they speak to Dr. Harun where they

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

were, they shall call when

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

we tell the female or talk Allah who dealt with a tendency to see becoming a dunya will often come ask and Allah who will attend the university they will not no no before that. No, it's quite it's quite Allah Who como

00:33:44 --> 00:34:05

in Allah Allah your head will very keen to his people came and told him don't be happy. Allah does not like those who are happy to Allah. Everyone knows that's impossible. It's impossible does not what that mean, even know what it can with us with a guy with a straight face could could translate it that way make any sense of it? He's talking about being over discernment. He's talking about being vain, being arrogant.

00:34:06 --> 00:34:41

feeling entitled, that's what he's talking about here. Being happy is fine. That's a sad, it's not. That's the word for minimum shutter universal. He talks about that. That's that's, that's the word photo is used in a negative sense, because it's not talking about that. Obviously, the word outside of the Quran can have a beautiful context and that's fine. But the Quranic usage of this word that's what it means when attempts you fill out the metal highs in other words, when you walk on Earth with that model. So here he's saying what I've done for a hobby my article he does saying don't be happy. You're not saying don't be happy with the good things I gave, you know, saying don't become

00:34:41 --> 00:34:59

entitled, or feel deserving of the good things that I gave, you know, it was all written. None of this is personal. None of this is personal. was all there before creation was ever existed. Here are the bad things are gonna happen to you. Here are the good things are gonna happen to you. That's your package here. Here's your

00:35:00 --> 00:35:31

package, some people get a great package, some people get a less good package, some people get a really difficult one. Some people get a long package, a short package, you get a package with any good things and bad things, deal with them, deal with them in the way that you need to deal with knowing that they were always there, you couldn't, there's nothing you can do anymore. Once they occur, you can't go back in what had I done this higher than that it's done. It happened. Don't over grieve and hate yourself and become very, and become depressed and lose your meaning for life when it's not what you wanted. And don't become entitled and arrogant and vain. When it's something that

00:35:31 --> 00:36:02

you wanted. Just know that Allah subhanaw taala Delta to you use it for that which is good. That makes sense. This is what this is saying. Just look at what happened to you learn from it. If you got something good, be extremely humble, be very caring with it, use it to help others. If something bad happens, you look at it, learn from the lesson, take that and walk and walk with it. People who go through horrible, horrific calamities and life vary a lot of difficulties. These are people who if they deal with that experience appropriately end up having a lot of empathy,

00:36:03 --> 00:36:35

end up having a lot of compassion, they are the best people to actually help those who've been through, or who are going through or or been through similar circumstances, because they understand because they get it best substance abuse counselors or people who have substance abuse in their past, because they understand. Because if you haven't been addicted to anything you don't understand, you don't understand why they don't stop doing it. They'll sit there and act like you care, but you don't, in your mind, like just stop doing it. It's very simple. It's there, just don't do it. You don't understand what's going through their mind, you understand you don't understand the

00:36:35 --> 00:36:52

urge the need, you don't understand the anxiety, you don't understand it. But someone who went through it does. So they're more empathetic they can they can do more good. Same thing, if Allah gives you something good, think about the thing, good thing that he gave you. We don't do that. By the way, we're really good at that as human beings, we don't go back and say, Okay, what are the good stuff and the best.

00:36:54 --> 00:37:23

If you do do this, by the way, if you actually take some time and perform this, this very important activity, I give this to people, you know, mitosis sessions, where you have to go at some point you have to go through, you have to make a list. And once you make this list, you'll you'll feel very ashamed because there'll be a pathetic list early on. And when you first make the list will be pathetic will be horrible. It'll show you how little insight you have of your own life. Let make it? What are the what are the strong points that you got? What are the stuff that Allah gave you that are working for you, they're really great. And what are the stuff that happened to you that were

00:37:23 --> 00:37:54

really negative and maybe still affect you and maybe are still holding you back? When he was trying to make this list, you will fail horrifically the first time around, because it takes a lot of kind of peeling of the onion layers to really be honest about it. And but once you are able to doing this, and actually saying this is what I'm good at, this is what I'm not good at this the good stuff that happened to me in my life that I'm going to use to give back. And these are the bad things that happened to me in my life that I'm going to make sure to the best of my ability doesn't happen to anybody else. And if you're able to do that, then you've learned what this verse is saying. versus

00:37:54 --> 00:38:18

saying, Look Messiah gonna happen. Don't take it personally. Don't get too joyous. Don't get too depressed, because they're always going to happen anyway. Just learn from them and move on. Take the good and use it as played for others, take the bad learn from it, and then move on again and show perseverance. And you'll get the budget for that either way. But there's really nothing. This is why he tells us these information because had this piece of information not been there.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:20

You know what the biggest fear is?

00:38:21 --> 00:38:23

The biggest fear is the randomness

00:38:25 --> 00:38:26

is that it's meaningless.

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

I don't think is that registered? The biggest fear is that if something bad happens, that just happened. No one cared.

00:38:40 --> 00:38:52

It doesn't mean anything. It just happened. No one's watching. No one's listening. No one's recording. You're not getting any points for it. It's just just happened. And you just lost. And that's the end of it.

00:38:53 --> 00:39:16

And that's a really difficult, that's actually the most difficult of all. It's very difficult to accept really hard, almost almost impossible to accept. This is why the stocks of pharma, psychiatric pharmaceutical companies have skyrocketed 4,000% Over the last 10 years. And it's a really hard concept to accept. I just lost someone I love at a young age.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:56

Is there was that mean? Is there some resume? Is there some story to this was this? Does he know does he care? Does someone know? Am I going to what am I going to fight? How is it gonna work out later on? If no, it's just it just happened and you just lost and that's the end of it. And there's no justice coming and there's no redemption and there's no resurrection. There's nothing to this whole story. No one is watching over you and you no one's watching to see how you're behaving and within then it's very hard to swallow very hard. When Allah somebody tells you look, it was all recorded way before you ever existed, knew about all of it. Just just move on. Move along. As you go

00:39:56 --> 00:40:00

through the hurdles of life the good and the bad. Don't get too

00:40:00 --> 00:40:32

obsessed by what happened before. Don't lose. Don't lose hope because it was difficult. Don't become vain and arrogant. Let it go to your head when it's good. Just learn from them. Just look at look back at the past and learn from it, learn from it. Take from it the lessons that you can move on, take the lessons, good and bad, move on. Don't lose your faith. Don't Don't let it change you is what this is saying. Because Elesa and Farah are mental intellectual spiritual changes that are resulting from materialistic occurrences.

00:40:34 --> 00:40:59

That's why he's talking about this hadith. These are materialistic occurrences, massage that are coming to you that are going to cause intellectual spiritual changes, etc, which is full hopelessness and depression. And Faraj which is vanity, arrogance and entitlement. materialistic things happening to you are changing you spiritually. Don't let them do that stay, stay right in the middle. Stay humble, stay confident, have humility.

00:41:01 --> 00:41:35

Good happens, you have the three bad happens, you still have the three. No matter what happens. You have these three, you look back, you learn you move on. Or else if you allow materialistic problems because somehow it's like he's telling us, You can't afford not to carry both the essence and the appearance, the spirituality and the materialism hand in hand, because they affect each other anyways. Like they affect you anyways, whether you're religious or not, whether you're spiritual or not, they're affecting you anyways, the materialistic occurrences in your life are affecting your spirituality and your mentality, whether you like it or not, they're affecting you.

00:41:36 --> 00:41:46

So you need to balance them out appropriately, or else you're going to find it very difficult. When he says to point out, well, hola, hola, yo, Hibou he points out here, he doesn't talk about the

00:41:47 --> 00:41:56

both the bad, he talks about the good and good luck. He talks about both in the Quran in different places. He talked about the good man if something good happens to you. And you become

00:41:57 --> 00:42:03

he says hola hola. You have Allah does not love good lemma hotel, every arrogant for whore vain.

00:42:04 --> 00:42:21

And then he describes them Subhanallah he gives a description that has nothing to do and apparently, in both, like when you think about it, because the definition of Vanity, vanity or Loyola or Lithia, motel arrogant, that is how you view yourself in comparison to other people.

00:42:23 --> 00:42:28

For whore is how you view yourself, regarding yourself. And

00:42:30 --> 00:43:08

arrogance, there has to be comparison of others, is where I think I'm better than other people, or a specific person, or every person, whatever the hood is where I think that whatever I do is amazing, is great. I am the center of attention, and the center of the universe. And the most important thing here, I am the most everything I do is amazing and great. And I make very few mistakes. And I'm very special by nature. And everything else people do is I have the best mentality that has nothing to do with others. I'm not comparing myself to others, I just believe that there's some divine This to me something interesting that I wasn't told I had and I didn't work for and that I do have no evidence

00:43:08 --> 00:43:22

to support where I want the spotlight to be on this. I want to be praised for everything I do. That's that's, that's vanity. The combination is is horrible. He's trying to say I don't live, I don't love and mortality. I don't love the arrogant, don't love the vain.

00:43:23 --> 00:43:35

Obviously, this happens a lot in life. And here's the example I give to like in my chest case sessions is the example I give. Here's, I believe there's a pendulum, and your pendulum is like the newest.

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

So the pendulum, I believe it's a spirit. It's like a It's a figure of speech, it exists somewhere inside of you.

00:43:45 --> 00:43:57

And it's affected by the movements of your life. It's like you're on this journey of life. And there are ups and downs. So the pendulum is tucked right in the middle where it should be.

00:43:58 --> 00:44:12

And it's a two layer pendulum. So when you're talking about your vision of yourself, that's the first layer and your vision of yourself in comparison to others. That's the second layer. Right in the middle, you have confidence. That's what we want. Once you be confident I'll flip up.

00:44:13 --> 00:44:29

If it swings, if life is good, it'll swing this way, and you'll become vain. Unless you hold it down in the middle. If things don't go well, it will swing this way and make you and make you feel worthless. And make you feel that you have no no. No worth at all.

00:44:30 --> 00:45:00

These are the people have that they have to bring it back in the middle. The second layer is where you have humility. This is in comparison to others that good things happen. It swings this way you become arrogant You think you're better than everybody I knew it. I knew it. I always knew it just a matter of time that I proved it better than everyone or, or bad things happen a bad bump in life and it swings this way. And you have inferiority complexes. And you think that you're not worthy people are better than you and you can't seem to find you're really what you need to do in life is

00:45:00 --> 00:45:33

Hold it right down in the middle as the bumps of life, your whole, the bumpy ride life is very this is a roller coaster, roller coaster, you have to hold it down. No, no, we're not going this way, not going that way. Okay that so if I don't, don't go this way, and lose hope and feel worthless and have inferiority complexes and don't go this way, you're probably gonna attack them and then become vain and arrogant state right in the middle right in the middle, hold on to where it needs to be. By understanding that all of this was predetermined, Allah subhanaw taala, I just have to learn from it and move on and try better next time. I got good things Hamdulillah I use it for good. I had bad

00:45:33 --> 00:45:35

things and Hamdulillah. And I persevere and I learned

00:45:36 --> 00:45:56

it. And that's it, there's nothing else is needed. This pendulum exists inside the mind that each and every one of us is swinging all the time. Unless you are consciously cognitively, spiritually holding it down. He wants you to be confident, I want you to have humility. The sum of the two things is called humbleness.

00:45:57 --> 00:46:37

That's dal bar. That's the most beautiful ethic that has ever existed and ever will. And a true a true humble person is loved by all. And if you think about it, the type of person you want to spend your life with your time with is a humble person. Not someone who's needy, not someone who is always scared and afraid and can make a decision and requires you and requires support that's tiring, that's high maintenance, not someone who looks down on you. Someone who is a narcissist who requires praise, you want someone who's humble, who's confident who they are, who is willing to offer whatever it is they have good in their life to someone else who's willing to serve, who does not

00:46:37 --> 00:47:05

feel that they're superior to anyone or inferior to anyone either. And knows that their innate value comes from the Almighty Himself that all of these muscles good or bad, all that occurs, good or bad, is predetermined in the book way before creation ever existed. So when they happen to me, I just learned from I read them ikura I do what I was told the first day, he became a prophet. So I read, I learned from them. I look back at what happened to me, I Say Subhan Allah

00:47:06 --> 00:47:35

Subhanallah I did this and it didn't work. I did that and it worked. I could have done this better. I could have done that better. I made all these mistakes and it worked out and I made did this right it didn't work you learn from your life. Your life is an open book, read it, learn from it. Just Just look at your own experiences. Don't you don't need to go anywhere else. You don't need actually to listen to me talk like this is a waste sometimes. Sometimes it's a waste of your time. But you have to if you can just learn to look at your own experiences you'll learn so much from just yourself. Because Allah does not love

00:47:36 --> 00:47:40

the arrogant and the vain. But then he describes them as

00:47:41 --> 00:47:47

arrogant arrogance and vanity or to spiritual problems. And who are the Lavina Yabba Haroon?

00:47:49 --> 00:47:51

The ones who are stingy. And

00:47:52 --> 00:47:57

Wyatt Marone and nurse Bill bone, and they command others to be stingy like them.

00:47:58 --> 00:48:04

That is a translation you will find in almost every book of Quran translation. That's how they translate one.

00:48:08 --> 00:48:09

That's not a good translation of bull.

00:48:11 --> 00:48:17

Bull you have Sure, sure, is selfishness. And bull is self centeredness.

00:48:18 --> 00:48:58

That's what they are. They result in certain behaviors that result in you being stingy. When I'm self centered, that means I'm not willing to invest my money, time or emotion in the well being of someone else. Because I'm self centered. It's about me. Selfish, this is what I want everything for me, well, maybe you will put your hand if see when you're, if you and we'll talk about that. So Tasha and detail, explain that Inshallah, at that point, in some degree of detail, it's very important. But when we use that, to say it's flat is this person is cheap, or they're stingy. sure that that's a common usage of the word and in general Arabic, but in the Quranic sense, Mohan is

00:48:58 --> 00:49:34

talking about self centeredness, when you're, when you're, because when you are self centered, you're stingy. You don't you don't give out the good things that you have. It really is not money that people are looking for most of the time, most of the time, most of the time they're looking for something else. Most of the time, they want you to invest a little bit of emotion, a little bit of empathy, compassion, a little bit of love. self centered, people can't do it. They can't. They can't. That's their that's a currency that is only for them. Because it's all about them. They're self centered. So they want that to be given to them, but not willing to give it back. And you will

00:49:34 --> 00:50:00

find you'll run into these relationships in your life. And I'm not interested in you actually thinking about people like that. I'm interested in you making sure that you're not one of those people. That's really all matters from learning these tools. It's not to actually point out Yes, I know this person and then forget about that. Leave that judgment to God. Think about this. Make sure that you're not one of those. Those who are self centered and they command others to be so self centered as well. Me It's not that they command they walk around saying be

00:50:00 --> 00:50:10

Be self centered No. Meaning they encourage a self centered approach to life. Does that ring a bell a little bit in the world that we're living in today? Does that sound familiar to you?

00:50:12 --> 00:50:14

Do you think maybe, maybe that's one of the reasons that we

00:50:15 --> 00:50:18

aren't doing too well as a race these days.

00:50:19 --> 00:50:44

Maybe we become very self centered. And we've encouraged a mentality and a lifestyle of self centeredness, where everyone should be focused only fully exclusively on themselves, and what works for them on their individuality, on their personal freedoms on their personal life. Maybe that approach is not the healthiest. Maybe being too self centered is not.

00:50:45 --> 00:50:47

It's not it's not a good way to live.

00:50:48 --> 00:50:55

You can't live with a person who's self centered, you can't you know that. You can't be friends with them. Well, if you're married to one, Allahu Akbar,

00:50:57 --> 00:51:18

Allah is one of the hardest things of the world, if someone if you end up with the people that I see suffer, or people are, either their soul centered, so they cannot see for the life of me, they cannot see any of the flaws, they can't see them as they can't see anything. Because there's too self centered to see it. And then the person beside them is the life is being drained out of them, because they can't see it.

00:51:19 --> 00:51:47

friends like that will drain the life out of you as well. Acquaintances like that are people you run away from, you can't even have a conversation with them. Because somehow it's gonna be about them at the end of it, somehow is going to be steered away or it's going to be focused on themselves, their experiences, something they did something that they said at the beach or something like that. Not not joyful, it's not fun. Sorry, we didn't do a lot of reading today. But honestly, these verses are suited to Hadid are extremely important, I find them to be

00:51:48 --> 00:52:08

positioned in the Quran in such a strategic place. Right. And so it will Hadith because he's pointing out like materialistic occurrences will cause a spiritual fluctuation inside of you, that will result in a materialistic consequence in your behavior. Will you become stingy bull?

00:52:10 --> 00:52:50

It will, it will, it'll go back and caused you the consequence of this fluctuation of your spirituality where you go from being confident. And having humility to being vain and arrogant will result in you becoming self centered. Encouraging a self centered approach will cause bull, which cause people will stop giving openly, people will stop being generous. People won't want to just help it help others anymore. When you say lend money. Well, what's in it for me? For the sake of Allah and they laugh at you? Just for for nothing. Just, you want me to? You want me to lend money? Just for the betterment of the

00:52:52 --> 00:53:19

What are you talking about? There's no such thing. Show me the money. Show me what's in it for me. Okay? Does everything has just there have to be something in it for you and everything you do? Of course, that's born? That is what that's what all is? Are you not capable of doing anything where there's no return? Where you just do it because it's right. Or you do it because someone else needs it or because there's suffering and pain somewhere there's, there's there have to be a return for you when it

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


00:53:23 --> 00:53:47

Materialistic occurrence causes a spiritual fluctuation that results in a materialistic behavior. It's all connected, all connected, which is what the soul is trying to explain. This tool is not telling you to make a choice. This was not here to tell you be spiritual or don't be materialistic. No, no, no, no, this sort of saying you have to be able to balance them both. Because the moment you drop one of them, it stops working. This whole system collapses in

00:53:48 --> 00:54:02

Romania to will and those who refuse to understand this, and those who refuse to comprehend this for in Allah who then indeed Allah, who will honey, you will Hamid he is the one who's in need of no one. And he is the one who was always praiseworthy.

00:54:03 --> 00:54:20

Subhanallah I can't be vain and arrogant because that's not my nature. I'm a servant. I'm a creation. I'm very weak. I cannot sustain my own existence in any form. I deserve nothing of this because I didn't contribute to any of it to begin with. Very simple and every in every way.

00:54:22 --> 00:54:28

Every department of existence I'm extremely simple like a tiny like like this little bottle here. There's nothing complex about me.

00:54:29 --> 00:54:59

And whatever I do, I do so many things are required for there to be any sense of success in anything that I do. So many things have to line up so many blessings have to occur all at once in order for me to get anything done. So I cannot be vain or arrogant because there's no there's no basis for it. There's no logical, real life basis for me to have that. But Allah subhanaw taala on the other hand, he's Ghani he is the self sustaining. He requires no one

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

So if you're self centered, you don't want to give and be generous. He doesn't need you. Don't be generous Fine, keep it he doesn't need it anyway. He's not something he told you at the beginning of the story if you were leaving the store with me, he asked twice, right go to

00:55:13 --> 00:55:37

number 11 manga levy your pergola comes on has said Which of you will loan Allah subhanaw taala a beautiful loan and then he will take it and times it many fold. And then he sent it again in 18 in Musa de pinna, what will move the party what occurred Allah has been hassling you boy, after whom those indeed who puts their wealth male and female and lend Allah a beautiful loan will be times made time for them.

00:55:39 --> 00:56:12

You don't want to, you're gonna let life get to go to your head, you're gonna become extremely depressed or extremely vain and arrogant and you're gonna become self centered and stingy. Go ahead, turn your back. Allah is Gandhi. He doesn't need any of it. He is not benefiting from it and he does not require me or anything I'm going to offer and he's an Hamid unlike me, I will I'm not praiseworthy at any points for being vain goes against who I am because I'm not praiseworthy. He supplements I don't, on the other hand, is ill Hamid, he is all praiseworthy all the time. He is deserving of praise at every moment, whether you have a reason for it at the top on the tip of your

00:56:12 --> 00:56:38

tongue, or you do not he is praiseworthy. That's why a Muslim is known to be a Muslim by when the first thing you do you speak to them and ask them how they're going to say it hamdulillah and we stand under the banner, I've been humbled that he carries Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam and we are called a Cameroonian multicam are the ones who prays. That's who we are. We're not We're not praising ourselves, we're praising the praise worthy at all times.

00:56:39 --> 00:57:11

You're standing this is how this this is their beautiful my opinion on the most beautiful verses on either group of verses in the Quran. I left until this week because I was hoping to kind of be able to share all that with you. I'll kind of end with that from this type. We still have I think another 10 minutes. So let's recite just so that we have the benefit of reciting a 25. I'll maybe give a little bit of an overview in the next week. Inshallah we'll conclude Sudha Hadid by reciting this last page. It won't take us long. I do apologize if this took too long. I need for anyone's taste, but I hope that was a benefit for you. So reciting Sharla and number 25 are always will be lie he

00:57:11 --> 00:57:13

Nina shame on your body

00:57:18 --> 00:57:22

Bismillah hir rahman you're watching him

00:57:26 --> 00:57:30

lapada on Cell No Rusu Lana will begin

00:57:35 --> 00:58:06

so please point out Rusu la Rusu Lana, so the lamb has a photon and Okay, so I'll probably be here but it's important because a little bit difficult because there's two two numbers before so the tongue technically doesn't really like kind of making that transition so sooner is a bit easier than we'll sue Lana. It's actually easier on the tongue so you have to kind of watch out and make sure that you allow it to come up properly. While Zelina hula Kitab me is an earlier Puma and soybean spot

00:58:14 --> 00:58:51

so when you say this last word you see you see the cough which is more for hum which is a heavy letter in a scene which is not the light letter and the law which is of course the mother of all heavy letters and it has a scalpel at the end of it as well. The thought will tend to make the scene aside because the thought inside her friends and inside doesn't make the scene at all. So it doesn't want you to besides so what wants to come out is Bill this spot that's what it wants to come up but we have to be very careful what we say Bill this bill this bill this spot so you have to make the the scene stays light and nice and itself and it can be as heavy as it wants at the end of it is is

00:58:51 --> 00:59:02

a word that requires a little bit of practice when it comes out appropriately. One Zelner Hadid Fe back soon Shadi do woman fear

00:59:10 --> 00:59:14

one mana fear only see Walia Allah Allah

00:59:20 --> 00:59:27

Walia Allah Allah whom and Jung Soo Hoo hoo Sula who be Louisville

00:59:35 --> 00:59:44

same thing here Jung Soo who The Sun and The Rock both have bombers on him. But then the the word world who Sula who the lamb has a patent on it, so it's a little bit again a little bit.

00:59:45 --> 00:59:57

throw you off. So twice in this area Rusu, Lana and weru Sula, who so just watch out for those Fattah on the lam. It's important in law her call we Yun as these

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


01:00:01 --> 01:00:30

so let's take a few minutes and talk about this beautiful I obviously this is the idea that the SUTA was named after, right because it has the word in it. So whenever. And I don't do this as often I forget sometimes Subhanallah, I used to take the time to focus on this piece, and I started to forget doing it. But I always like to explain to you how the name of the sutra is attached to the theme of it. And I forget, and I'll try to do that when I summarize the the juicer. I'll do that just to make sure I pointed out because I don't think I pointed it out for the last couple of months, I've been forgetting to do it. So I did.

01:00:31 --> 01:00:54

It's called Le Hadid. It's called Irin. That's the name of the surah. If you think about it, you've been studying with me to sort of iron for the last bit. And iron in itself is something interesting, like as a concept like everything, modern day we were able to utilize this this metal in a way that actually you revolutionized life in so many aspects in, in fields.

01:00:55 --> 01:01:29

And he named it Hadith SubhanaHu, wa taala. To kind of point out that the Surah, as much as it's going to dive into your spirituality is not neglecting the importance of Iran of an Hadith, which is materialistic peace. Like, it's as if this sort of saying, I'm going to call it iron, I'm not going to call it the spirit. I'm not gonna call it like elevating or some some, you know, nice, Mystic word of spiritual, I'm gonna call it iron. And then until you are in the middle of it, it's time for you to have for sure. I'm going to tell you in the middle of it that you cannot be moved out of a hole. I mean, that's what I'm telling you in the middle of it. I'm going to point out all of the

01:01:29 --> 01:02:07

spiritual aspects of your existence, we're going to be held to an atomic iron at the beginning, just so that you understand that there is no way for you to make this discrepancy. So he says to Pano Tada, where and this is of course, what comes next. He is basically stating that history of existence, he says Laconia or Sellner. Indeed we have sent all students are messengers or prophets built by an ad with all of the clarifications and there would be unit basically, is the referring to the miracles, referring to the books and the guidance and all that stuff. But then he specifies a little bit Subhanallah he says we're in zona Mara, whom will Kitab Oh, well, me Zan, Leah Kuma nurse

01:02:07 --> 01:02:10

who will play sport and we descended with them.

01:02:12 --> 01:03:00

Kitab will Meezan the law and the balance Lea Kuma nurse will be sport that people may establish their lives in a form of fairness and justice and prosperity ideal is merely justice. This is justice plus prosperity, justice that has Rama in it, that has mercy compassion that has an aspect of growth within him he's not It's not dry justice, that is just there to fulfill some eventual feeling on the inside is to something much more beautiful, which is why it's used in the Quran. In many, and honestly, it's actually its own study to kind of look for the times the word either was used in the times that words were used, and then figuring out why they were used in that fashion.

01:03:00 --> 01:03:27

Because this difference I believe very dry is very simple. Just the concept of justice. This is where there's prosperity attached to it. So he's saying I spent I spent sent my profits, we have sent profits throughout time to all groups and we sent the clarifications and we descended with them. Kita referring to the law. Here the Kitab is referring to the actual books of revelation that carried within them the laws that we are supposed to follow in order to obey Allah subhanaw taala.

01:03:29 --> 01:03:36

And we sent with them the reason now that the prophets of Allah Allah assignments of them actually bring a scale with them.

01:03:37 --> 01:03:59

So obviously, this is not literal, this is figurative or else we would be all new, we would have a scale that would go and do 02 and crazy stuff, but he didn't have actual scale. So that means n is a concept, the concept of that balance. And that's why this is so important because when salted Hadid is using that we talked about this in details with a rock man if you

01:04:01 --> 01:04:16

sama Rafa, whereby Meezan Allah Takako Phil MISA and he will team will Wesner bill basically whether to Cyril Meezan, which I talked about that in a lot of detail and actually ran a full series of videos on achieving that balance a couple of months ago.

01:04:18 --> 01:04:31

So here he's saying some highlights that I sent with him the law and the balance, so that you can know how to actually follow that law and how that law will fulfill your your needs to how they will serve you as a human being allowed to be better.

01:04:32 --> 01:04:59

What in Zelda Hadid and we sat with them iron. P Heba soon studied within Ireland there will be severe strength or extreme strength, strength, back strength, that's a strength and should either extreme strength. Well now if you're old enough and benefits for people outside of the street outside of the sword that will be wielded out of it. Instead of the sword and the armor that you will wear and the tanks and the cars and the Jets and all that stuff. There'll be benefits elsewhere.

01:05:00 --> 01:05:39

You'll have cars and you'll have homes and you'll have technology. Why now if you're old enough, there'll be benefits to human beings. Well, yeah Allah, Allah who may Jung Soo who are Rousselot who believe. And he sent both, so that Allah subhanaw taala May. So he says, may know, he's already explained to you that he knows all that's going to happen. This is so that he can he can make you prove me He gives you the opportunity to prove men young soldier who will advocate and stand by Allah subhanaw taala and his prophets will sudo will ye be even though they have never seen him, even though there's an aspect of the unseen, indeed, Allah subhanaw taala is the alls powerful, and

01:05:39 --> 01:05:40

he is the unfathomable.

01:05:41 --> 01:06:25

This I am explained how Allah subhanho wa Taala basically, in a nutshell, when he sent his prophets, he required them to bring two things require them to bring a law and the balance and understanding of life and a practice that would be meaningful. And he required them to come with strength, with power, and with the ability to utilize the minerals of this earth, to take that which Allah Subhanallah put on it, and then use it, to defend themselves to benefit humanity. And to build something that Allah subhanahu wa Tada wanted them to do something that would advocate for ALLAH SubhanA his teachings and for the rights of their profits, even though he is unseen to them, even

01:06:25 --> 01:06:29

though it's like even though this is not something that you were able to reach with your senses.

01:06:30 --> 01:06:44

When the OMA decided that one of these two things were no longer important, that is when we started to fail. And I'm not saying by the way that we neglected the Hadid piece, oh, I think we have done a pretty good job of neglecting almost both

01:06:46 --> 01:06:49

in different ways, different levels with different strategies.

01:06:50 --> 01:06:53

But the fact that sort of the Hadid is actually

01:06:55 --> 01:07:34

saying that, that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was not sent with only Kitab and Meezan with only a law and a balance of behaviors and a comprehension that will allow us to to prevail, but also Hadid he sent the Iran he descended that with them. Isn't that what devil did and they're not going to get into the please don't ask me about like scientific. So this is not this idea was not talked about it here to talk about everything on Earth, a Stardust, everything, everything was descended from this from the universe, everything every mineral comes from other places, it was all clumped up into this ball that rotated around the Sun for billions of years until it hardened. And then life

01:07:35 --> 01:07:55

started with the will of Allah subhanaw taala. So everything ends and everything Allah Allah descended everything, you don't have to get into the details of you know, all that stuff. But what he's trying to explain subhanaw taala is that it's not just the law, the balance, the spirituality, it is also the strength, the status, the power, the utilization of the materials that exist around you.

01:07:56 --> 01:08:20

Both have to happen. And this is one of the most unique verses in the Quran. Because it's, it's known to be the beginning of the end of so to insert the Hollywood Hadid is in it. So we accept it as such. But remove it from that, take it out, just pull it out of the sewer for a moment, and then just analyze it on its own as a verse in the Quran. outside of the context of what explained, it's very revealing.

01:08:21 --> 01:08:30

He's telling us upon Otalia both are required. I didn't tell him my profits, go take this book, teach the spirituality of it and the meanings and be weak

01:08:32 --> 01:08:42

and be weak and utilize nothing. And do not understand anything that's happening around you and have no materialistic approach to the world that you live in at all. Nor did I tell them to go

01:08:43 --> 01:08:47

and be butchers and carry swords and go around killing people.

01:08:49 --> 01:09:01

I didn't tell them to do either. I explained to them you must carry both. And when you look at his life that Allah Hi, Sahil Salam and the Sahaba What do you find? You will not find that very exquisite balance.

01:09:02 --> 01:09:44

You'll not find that exquisite balance and Himalayan salt was someone who was at a level of spirituality that's almost it's not almost that is an paralleled also someone who utilized the materials around him and taught his Alma to do that. That's why within 300 years of him passing away on his salatu salam, our scholars were both Tokoha of a month hub and botanist. They were more Hadith in Mova city and astronomers. There are people who understood the value of both approaches. I'm gonna talk about that and show a little bit of detail in more detail next week. Forgive me for taking too much too long to talk about behind the Shinola in Lahaina and if you go to break up there

01:09:44 --> 01:09:47

was a benefit was that Allah said them hammered him. I mean, it's like McLaughlin but
