9th 25th night of Ramadan. We're

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

quickly

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

approaching the end.

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

Will be,

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

end a couple of nights, and we'll have

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

the khatim. And then once you have the

00:00:14 --> 00:00:17

khatim, Ramadan is technically almost over, and it's

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

just a matter of, you know, get of

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

getting through the motions. May Allah grant us

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

the witness of late Qadr and, the ajur

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

of of, of worshiping him throughout it inshaAllah

00:00:28 --> 00:00:31

ta'ala. So tonight, we will

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

recite

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

from the beginning of Surat Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi

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

wa

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

sallam, until the first few verses of Surat

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

Al Qamar.

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

And the cluster that we I think it's

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

the 7th may Allah forgive me. I think

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

it's the 7th. I cannot remember the sequence.

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

So the cluster from Muhammad to Al Khujou,

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

just 3 surahs, one of the shortest in

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

the Quran. And its theme or its purpose

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

or its objective is talking about the prophet

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

as the first surah in that, the cluster

00:00:58 --> 00:01:00

kind of reveals. The Surah Muhammad,

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

it tells us that

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

these are only accepted if they are in

00:01:05 --> 00:01:07

accordance to what he taught, alayhis salatu wa

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

sallam. It's as simple as that. You want

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

your ala to be accepted? You want your

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

life to be, you know, to then it

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

has to be in accordance to what he

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

lived how he lived and what he taught,

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

alayhis salatu wa sallam, or else you're you

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

you'll do deeds. You'll perform deeds, but they

00:01:19 --> 00:01:20

won't be they won't count. They won't they

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

won't mean anything. You have to it has

00:01:21 --> 00:01:23

to be in accordance to his teachings

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

as they based on the the legacy that

00:01:25 --> 00:01:26

he left and based on,

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

the principles and the values that he shared

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

and that's basically what Surah Muhammad talks about.

00:01:32 --> 00:01:35

It starts out by talking about combat because

00:01:35 --> 00:01:37

it's Again, combat in the Quran is not

00:01:37 --> 00:01:40

to encourage bloodshed. No. No one who is

00:01:40 --> 00:01:42

sane looks forward to war. I mean, this

00:01:42 --> 00:01:45

is there are certain maxims within the Quran

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

that for some reason, we have there are,

00:01:46 --> 00:01:48

you know, for some reason, we we stopped

00:01:50 --> 00:01:52

We we've been questioned about so often that

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

we feel like we have to defend all

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

the time.

00:01:54 --> 00:01:57

No one looks forward to war. Islamically, you

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

are commanded not to. So why is combat

00:01:59 --> 00:02:01

talked about? It's because it's the epitome of

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

sacrifice.

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

Like, if you if you are willing to

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

follow the prophet

00:02:07 --> 00:02:08

in those moments, then you'll follow him on

00:02:08 --> 00:02:09

in simpler stuff.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:11

And if you can't follow him, any in

00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

in that moment, then you may not be

00:02:13 --> 00:02:14

able to do it the opposite. So it's

00:02:14 --> 00:02:16

the epitome of of sacrifice, so it's used

00:02:16 --> 00:02:18

as an example because it's where you have

00:02:18 --> 00:02:21

to follow him somewhere it's hard. Everything else

00:02:21 --> 00:02:22

is easy. Every goal, everything else is easy.

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

But when your life's not on the line,

00:02:24 --> 00:02:25

it's no it's no big deal. But when

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

your life is on the line, that's when

00:02:26 --> 00:02:29

things are much more complicated and and and

00:02:29 --> 00:02:30

it's much more threatening and it's much more

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

scary.

00:02:31 --> 00:02:34

So, that's why combat is talking about in

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

the Quran and jihad in this form of

00:02:36 --> 00:02:38

qital is brought up. It's because,

00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

the fact that, it's a hard it's a

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

hard sell. And it's something that's not easy

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

for you to follow him, alayhis salaam, in

00:02:44 --> 00:02:45

because your life is on the line.

00:02:45 --> 00:02:47

So that's what Sulema Muhammad talks about. It

00:02:47 --> 00:02:48

talks about the fact that we have to

00:02:48 --> 00:02:50

follow him, and then our deeds will not

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

be accepted if they're not according to his

00:02:51 --> 00:02:52

teaching.

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

Give us examples of those who followed him

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

and those who didn't, what those who follow

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

him got, what those who didn't get,

00:02:59 --> 00:03:02

and how that affects character. That's what Surah

00:03:02 --> 00:03:04

Al Fatiha talks about. And it begins by

00:03:04 --> 00:03:06

telling the story of not fat hamakkah, as

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

most people think. It's a nice people information

00:03:08 --> 00:03:09

to hold on to. Surah Al Fatiha has

00:03:09 --> 00:03:10

nothing to do with fat hamakkah. It talks

00:03:10 --> 00:03:11

about

00:03:12 --> 00:03:14

and that's what the Fatima actually is. It

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

does predict Fatimaqa

00:03:16 --> 00:03:17

later in the Surah.

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

It it predicts that later on it will

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

happen, but the concept, the words Fatima and

00:03:22 --> 00:03:23

the Surah itself is regarding

00:03:29 --> 00:03:30

I'll quickly water and get something to clean

00:03:30 --> 00:03:31

this up. This is

00:03:32 --> 00:03:34

I'm going to bang Kalak in this place.

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

That's it.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:39

You're making it very hard for me to

00:03:39 --> 00:03:41

argue the allowance of food and drink in

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

this, in this space.

00:03:45 --> 00:03:47

And then Surah Al Qajar talks about the

00:03:47 --> 00:03:48

adab,

00:03:48 --> 00:03:50

meaning the teachings and the,

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

and the etiquettes that he brought

00:03:53 --> 00:03:55

that represents his way or represents his character,

00:03:55 --> 00:03:56

which is what the Surah Al Hajjulah and

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

we did I did the tafsir of Surah

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

Al Hajjulah multiple times in, you know, in

00:04:00 --> 00:04:01

Arabic and English, and it's online for you

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

to go through. It's a really important Surah.

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

Yeah. I

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

remember many of our scholars would, constant and

00:04:07 --> 00:04:08

constantly and often,

00:04:09 --> 00:04:11

teach it to kids and and tell us

00:04:11 --> 00:04:12

to teach it to children early on in

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

their lives because of all the etiquettes and

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

the adab that they carry that it carries

00:04:16 --> 00:04:18

and it and it represents the teachings of

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

the prophet, alayhis salatu wasalam himself and the

00:04:20 --> 00:04:22

and the etiquettes that he carried, salallahu alayhi

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

salatu waslam, in his life. So that's what

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

this cluster is. It's just talks about the

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

prophet, alayhis salatu waslam, the importance of following

00:04:26 --> 00:04:28

him so that these are accepted.

00:04:28 --> 00:04:30

The examples of those who follow and the

00:04:30 --> 00:04:32

examples of those who don't and the consequences

00:04:32 --> 00:04:33

of the two things, and then the etiquettes

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

and the adham and the principles that he

00:04:35 --> 00:04:36

lived by alayhis salatu wa sallam summarized in

00:04:36 --> 00:04:38

the surah that is only a page 2

00:04:38 --> 00:04:39

pages and a half, but it's filled with

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

the examples

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

of of of compassion, of mercy, of Yani,

00:04:43 --> 00:04:45

of respect, of, of, kindness,

00:04:46 --> 00:04:49

etcetera. And and it's a surah that

00:04:49 --> 00:04:50

is quite well,

00:04:50 --> 00:04:53

well well understood and well known. So the

00:04:53 --> 00:04:55

the cluster that starts afterwards is,

00:04:55 --> 00:04:57

it begins with Surat Qaf,

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

and from Surat Qaf to a naz is

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

called the mufasal.

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

That's what it's called, the mufasal, which is

00:05:02 --> 00:05:04

the comprehensive or the detailed.

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

These these,

00:05:06 --> 00:05:07

these 4 ajzah, basically,

00:05:08 --> 00:05:09

4 in a few pages, maybe, if you

00:05:09 --> 00:05:11

want to be any accurate.

00:05:12 --> 00:05:13

These last 4 ajzzah of the Quran

00:05:14 --> 00:05:16

summarize everything that the Quran has talked about

00:05:16 --> 00:05:18

from the beginning. Like, everything I've shared with

00:05:18 --> 00:05:19

you up till this moment or that we've

00:05:19 --> 00:05:22

talked about will be summarized again in a

00:05:22 --> 00:05:24

much more concise and, yeah,

00:05:25 --> 00:05:26

any,

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

short manner in these in these last 4.

00:05:31 --> 00:05:32

This from in Mufasal

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

contains

00:05:34 --> 00:05:36

4 ajz'u. Each juz'u is a has its

00:05:36 --> 00:05:38

own cluster, its own group of surahs, From

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

kaf to al hadith and from mujadarah to

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

tahari and then mulk to al mursalah, and

00:05:42 --> 00:05:43

they use a ama, which is in its

00:05:43 --> 00:05:44

own self 4 groups. Let's say, one cluster,

00:05:44 --> 00:05:46

there's 4 groups of surah in the middle

00:05:46 --> 00:05:48

and within it. And and these and these

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

and and the Fassal kind of summarize everything.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:53

And it's a really good portion of Quran

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

to know. So

00:05:54 --> 00:05:57

if if, you know, aiming towards memorizing the

00:05:57 --> 00:05:58

whole thing, which is a lot of work

00:05:58 --> 00:05:59

by the way. Mind you, it's a lot

00:05:59 --> 00:06:00

of work. And people always come for I

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

wanna memorize the whole Quran. I say, it's

00:06:02 --> 00:06:04

amazing. Great. I'm happy that you have an

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

ambition. But it's okay if you, you know,

00:06:07 --> 00:06:09

if if if you aim for something more

00:06:09 --> 00:06:11

realistic for your, you know, your lifestyle,

00:06:12 --> 00:06:13

or for that where you are in your

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

life or how old you are. And my

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

and my advice would be would be to

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

aim for like, if you don't have to

00:06:18 --> 00:06:20

aim for the last 4 digits of the

00:06:20 --> 00:06:21

Quran from Qaf to An Nas. Those are

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

that's why I've been doing tafsir of them

00:06:23 --> 00:06:25

here in in this masjid in English since

00:06:25 --> 00:06:27

the beginning since we opened, and we've done

00:06:27 --> 00:06:28

the first juzr

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

and almost a half. Like, we've done Qaf

00:06:31 --> 00:06:33

to Al Hadid, and then we did Mujadirat

00:06:33 --> 00:06:34

Al Hashar,

00:06:34 --> 00:06:35

and

00:06:35 --> 00:06:37

Al Jamwa. We finished those the the surahs.

00:06:37 --> 00:06:39

I'm gonna continue going until the Surah Al

00:06:39 --> 00:06:41

Nasr. It's online, so it's available. And the

00:06:41 --> 00:06:42

idea is that if you come every week

00:06:42 --> 00:06:44

and you memorize whatever I recite throughout the

00:06:44 --> 00:06:46

week, then at the end I know it

00:06:46 --> 00:06:47

sounds a long time, but if you end

00:06:47 --> 00:06:49

up if you're not someone who's memorizing at

00:06:49 --> 00:06:50

all Well, if you just do that within

00:06:50 --> 00:06:52

a couple of years you'll have the last

00:06:52 --> 00:06:53

word. It's better than at the end of

00:06:53 --> 00:06:54

the last couple of years, you don't have

00:06:54 --> 00:06:56

anything. So, something to kind of build upon

00:06:56 --> 00:06:57

and I find it to be a really

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

good portion of the Quran to know and

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

to know well and to understand, to be

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

able to explain and to be able to

00:07:01 --> 00:07:04

comprehend because it carries it summarizes everything. It

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

summarizes almost all the big major topics that

00:07:05 --> 00:07:08

the Quran talks about, with almost no exception.

00:07:08 --> 00:07:10

And I usually do I don't have time

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

for it during this halakha, but I but

00:07:12 --> 00:07:14

I I usually do a comparison or I

00:07:14 --> 00:07:15

I I break it down for you. Show

00:07:15 --> 00:07:17

you they see these surahs, they reflect these

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

longer ones and

00:07:18 --> 00:07:20

these these 3 surahs I talk about this,

00:07:20 --> 00:07:22

they reflect these 4 longer ones or this

00:07:22 --> 00:07:24

bigger cluster. So you find they're mirroring of

00:07:24 --> 00:07:26

all of the major topics that we're talking

00:07:26 --> 00:07:27

about in the Quran mirrored in the in

00:07:27 --> 00:07:28

the Mufasa from

00:07:30 --> 00:07:32

So today, we'll start the first cluster, the

00:07:32 --> 00:07:33

first group of surahs from khaaf to al

00:07:33 --> 00:07:36

hadith And it's a it's a comparative cluster

00:07:36 --> 00:07:37

of surahs. All it does is is it

00:07:37 --> 00:07:40

just offers you options, and it offers you

00:07:40 --> 00:07:42

things to choose from in terms of it

00:07:42 --> 00:07:45

compares them. And it starts with suztaf, which

00:07:45 --> 00:07:47

is the ultimate comparison, which is living yani

00:07:47 --> 00:07:51

life through Haqq versus Baqlan, walking the Surat

00:07:51 --> 00:07:53

al Mustaqim versus not, ending up in Jannah

00:07:53 --> 00:07:56

versus versus nah, which is the ultimate question

00:07:56 --> 00:07:57

that we all have to answer at some

00:07:57 --> 00:07:58

point in our lives. Whether you do you

00:07:58 --> 00:08:00

live like you? Is there meaning

00:08:01 --> 00:08:03

Are you are you looking forward to akhilah

00:08:03 --> 00:08:04

in your life? Is this something you think

00:08:04 --> 00:08:06

about? You care about living for what is

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

righteous and ending up in jannah or not?

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

And if the answer is yes, then you

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

move on to Surat Al Dariyat, and there's

00:08:11 --> 00:08:14

another question. Are you going to live purposefully

00:08:14 --> 00:08:15

or aimlessly?

00:08:15 --> 00:08:16

Now, yes, you you understand that there's akhirah,

00:08:16 --> 00:08:18

but are you going to live with purpose?

00:08:18 --> 00:08:20

Meaning there's aim, there's reason for why you're

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

here, you have a job to fulfill, you

00:08:22 --> 00:08:24

have a there's meaning to your life or

00:08:24 --> 00:08:25

you can live aimlessly.

00:08:25 --> 00:08:27

And if you and if you choose No,

00:08:27 --> 00:08:28

I want to live purposefully, then you move

00:08:28 --> 00:08:30

on. Anytime you decide the other thing, just

00:08:30 --> 00:08:31

stop reading.

00:08:32 --> 00:08:33

You're you're good. You can you can go

00:08:33 --> 00:08:34

home. Like if you

00:08:35 --> 00:08:37

live aimlessly, all I said like this is

00:08:37 --> 00:08:38

not for you. Like this this whole story

00:08:38 --> 00:08:39

is not for you. Now I wanna live

00:08:39 --> 00:08:41

with purpose. Okay. So the tour will ask

00:08:41 --> 00:08:43

the question do you want to live with

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

guidance

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

or misguided? With no or guidance is not

00:08:45 --> 00:08:47

something important to you. Like are you trying

00:08:47 --> 00:08:49

to find guidance? Are you seeking guidance? Is

00:08:49 --> 00:08:50

this what you want to be

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

how is how you want to live your

00:08:52 --> 00:08:53

life guided?

00:08:53 --> 00:08:55

You want akhirah, understood. You want to live

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

with purpose, understood.

00:08:57 --> 00:08:59

Are you seeking guidance for that? Or are

00:08:59 --> 00:09:00

you gonna just come up with your own

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

thing? Thank you. There's a lot of people

00:09:01 --> 00:09:02

who have their own religions.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

Majority of humanity. Each person has an individualistic

00:09:06 --> 00:09:07

understanding of the world and that's their religion.

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

You live by it. Is that what you're

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

going? You know, you look for guidance. No.

00:09:10 --> 00:09:11

I want guidance. Good. We'll move on, Sultan

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

Najim. Sultan Najim asks you, how are you

00:09:13 --> 00:09:14

gonna make your decisions?

00:09:14 --> 00:09:15

Based on

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

authentic

00:09:17 --> 00:09:19

knowledge or based on whims and desires and

00:09:19 --> 00:09:21

assumptions? How are you going to live your

00:09:21 --> 00:09:23

life? Authentic knowledge like something that you can

00:09:23 --> 00:09:25

reference, something has evidence to support it, or

00:09:25 --> 00:09:27

just whims, desires, and assumptions. No knowledge. Alright.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:28

1 Surat Khanna.

00:09:29 --> 00:09:31

They they talk about bounties.

00:09:32 --> 00:09:33

Similar to

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

the the earlier cluster of the in the

00:09:35 --> 00:09:36

Quran where you had Ibrahim,

00:09:38 --> 00:09:40

Hajar Ibrahim and Nahal. Right? They all talked

00:09:40 --> 00:09:42

about That was around over a * of

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

the Quran talking about Ni'am. Here you just

00:09:44 --> 00:09:46

have Surah Rahman and Surah Qamal Rahman talk

00:09:46 --> 00:09:48

about. Qamar tells you if you don't use

00:09:49 --> 00:09:50

blessings appropriately, they backfire.

00:09:51 --> 00:09:53

They turn to curses upon you like,

00:09:54 --> 00:09:55

they're taken away from you in dunya and

00:09:55 --> 00:09:57

and you end up paying from them so

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

they backfire. So the rahman tells you blessings

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

have

00:10:01 --> 00:10:02

to be fixed. You have to you have

00:10:02 --> 00:10:03

to be grateful for them in order for

00:10:03 --> 00:10:05

Allah to continue to give them and for

00:10:05 --> 00:10:07

him to put barakah in them. That's what

00:10:07 --> 00:10:08

Suratul Qamarman

00:10:08 --> 00:10:10

talks about. And then the rest of the

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

Suratul Qarqya tells you what type of person

00:10:12 --> 00:10:14

do you want to be. You want to

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

be

00:10:17 --> 00:10:19

other people, choose which group you're going to

00:10:19 --> 00:10:20

be a part of. The odds are in

00:10:20 --> 00:10:22

your favors. 2 out of 3. 2 out

00:10:22 --> 00:10:23

of 3 you make it. There's 1 third

00:10:23 --> 00:10:25

that doesn't, but you have to make a

00:10:25 --> 00:10:26

choice of what type of person you want

00:10:26 --> 00:10:27

to be. You want to be amongst the

00:10:27 --> 00:10:29

good The final surah with the hadith. It

00:10:29 --> 00:10:30

tells you, alright,

00:10:30 --> 00:10:32

in order for that to work, you have

00:10:32 --> 00:10:34

to understand that faith is spirituality

00:10:35 --> 00:10:36

and is physical. There's a physical aspect and

00:10:36 --> 00:10:39

spiritual. It's not Surah al Adi is unique.

00:10:39 --> 00:10:40

It's not choose

00:10:40 --> 00:10:42

choose the 2. No. It's balanced them.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:44

So instead of choose this or this, no,

00:10:44 --> 00:10:45

it's to balance them. You have to balance

00:10:45 --> 00:10:47

them. That's why the surah is called hadeen,

00:10:47 --> 00:10:48

and this is one of the most spiritual

00:10:48 --> 00:10:50

surahs in the Quran. Hadeen is is iron.

00:10:51 --> 00:10:52

Yeah. It's it's iron, and it's one of

00:10:52 --> 00:10:55

the most spiritual aya surahs in the whole

00:10:55 --> 00:10:56

Quran. Because if you don't have that,

00:10:57 --> 00:10:59

that appropriate mix or that appropriate

00:10:59 --> 00:11:02

balance between spirituality and physicality, then this whole

00:11:02 --> 00:11:04

thing doesn't work. And that's what this cluster

00:11:04 --> 00:11:06

from Qaf Abdul Hadid talks about. And you

00:11:06 --> 00:11:07

won't be finishing the whole thing with endul

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

qamab. I thought I would share with you

00:11:08 --> 00:11:10

so you can do some reflection on your

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

own.

00:11:12 --> 00:11:14

For tomorrow. And we'll continue inshallah moving forward,

00:11:14 --> 00:11:16

when we when we when we move move

00:11:16 --> 00:11:16

along.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:18

So that in a nutshell is how what

00:11:18 --> 00:11:20

we're going to be reciting, tonight. These surahs

00:11:21 --> 00:11:22

are very famous.

00:11:22 --> 00:11:24

They're well known. They're loved.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:25

They're

00:11:26 --> 00:11:29

they're comprehensive. They're short and they're detailed

00:11:29 --> 00:11:31

and a lot of information is put within

00:11:31 --> 00:11:33

small in very few verses. You'll find Surat

00:11:33 --> 00:11:35

Al Baq'a and Surat Tawba.

00:11:35 --> 00:11:37

Things are explained in a lot more details,

00:11:37 --> 00:11:39

a lot more words, a lot more verses

00:11:39 --> 00:11:41

are longer, a lot things are talked about

00:11:41 --> 00:11:43

in more depth. And so and these surahs

00:11:43 --> 00:11:44

know this

00:11:44 --> 00:11:47

the ayat are shorter. They're very concise, but

00:11:47 --> 00:11:48

they carry a lot of a lot of

00:11:48 --> 00:11:50

information within them. And the more and the

00:11:50 --> 00:11:51

and the more we move move forward within

00:11:51 --> 00:11:54

this, as we move along, the surahs get

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

shorter and shorter and shorter and shorter until

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

he comes to end of the Quran where

00:11:57 --> 00:11:59

there are literally a couple of lines,

00:11:59 --> 00:12:01

but there are Surah's all the same.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:04

Right? They're Surah's all the same.

00:12:05 --> 00:12:07

Is a Surah and Al Baqarah is a

00:12:07 --> 00:12:09

Surah. They may be different in terms of

00:12:09 --> 00:12:11

how much information they have within them, but

00:12:11 --> 00:12:13

they're equal in the sense that they're both

00:12:13 --> 00:12:15

a surah. They're both a unit that is

00:12:15 --> 00:12:17

worthy of talking about as a unit.

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

Right? So if you understand that, you understand,

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

oh, then

00:12:21 --> 00:12:22

if it's a unit like Surat Al Baqarah

00:12:22 --> 00:12:24

then it has to have a message that

00:12:24 --> 00:12:25

is as at least as important as Surat

00:12:25 --> 00:12:27

Al Baqarah as what she does which is

00:12:27 --> 00:12:29

why they're called the That's why from

00:12:31 --> 00:12:33

The shortest comprehensive or the short and comprehensive

00:12:34 --> 00:12:36

surahs. And that's you at least should know

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

that. And if you're someone who does who's

00:12:38 --> 00:12:40

not a memorizer at all and I didn't

00:12:40 --> 00:12:42

sell alqaaf to al Nas to you, then

00:12:42 --> 00:12:43

let me sell buhah to al Nas to

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

you. And I'll do it again. You should

00:12:45 --> 00:12:46

at least know that much because that's Qisar

00:12:46 --> 00:12:49

al Mufasal. They're really short and really comprehensive

00:12:49 --> 00:12:50

and then they carry all the values. They

00:12:50 --> 00:12:51

may not have all the fiqh, but they

00:12:51 --> 00:12:53

have all the values. Alright.

00:12:53 --> 00:12:54

We'll start inshaAllah ta'ala with

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

explaining some of these verses.

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

Let's start by doing Muhammad 15.

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

Example of the Jannah that the pious have

00:14:09 --> 00:14:10

been promised.

00:14:11 --> 00:14:12

Within it you'll find rivers

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

of of non stagnant water, Water that flows

00:14:16 --> 00:14:17

beautifully.

00:14:18 --> 00:14:20

It tastes beautiful, it's pure, and it smells

00:14:20 --> 00:14:22

good. There's

00:14:22 --> 00:14:24

no stagnant to it. You know, they could

00:14:24 --> 00:14:25

leave water in a certain place for a

00:14:25 --> 00:14:27

long time. It changes. The the the scent

00:14:27 --> 00:14:29

and the taste and the color of it

00:14:29 --> 00:14:31

will change. So the rivers that run-in Jannah

00:14:31 --> 00:14:32

do not have that.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:33

And

00:14:35 --> 00:14:37

rivers from milk that has not changed in

00:14:37 --> 00:14:39

terms of taste. It's just as pure and

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

fresh as as it always will be.

00:14:44 --> 00:14:46

When and rivers of of Khamr.

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

Khamr in Jannat does not do what Khamr

00:14:49 --> 00:14:52

and Dunya does. And kamr is in in

00:14:52 --> 00:14:55

in in the Quran is talked about as

00:14:55 --> 00:14:57

something that we don't take in duniya because

00:14:57 --> 00:14:57

it

00:14:58 --> 00:15:01

it it basically ruins your intellect. It takes

00:15:01 --> 00:15:04

away your sobriety. Intellectually that Recreationally that's haram

00:15:04 --> 00:15:06

to do. You're not allowed to recreationally remove

00:15:06 --> 00:15:08

your sobriety. You can do it medically when

00:15:08 --> 00:15:10

needed but not but not, recreationally.

00:15:14 --> 00:15:16

The khamal in in Jannah does not cause

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

headaches and does not cause you to lose

00:15:17 --> 00:15:19

your grasp over yourself, but just offer you

00:15:19 --> 00:15:21

the buzz or the high that you look

00:15:21 --> 00:15:23

for. Meaning that that which is what people

00:15:23 --> 00:15:25

want. They want that that joy. So they

00:15:25 --> 00:15:27

find that yomulkarn is out paying with it

00:15:28 --> 00:15:29

paying for it with their sobriety

00:15:30 --> 00:15:32

with their, yeah, integrity or with their health.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:33

So and

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

then there's,

00:15:35 --> 00:15:37

an har rebels of hamam.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:39

Only joy for those who drink it. There's

00:15:39 --> 00:15:41

only joy. There's nothing else in it.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:44

And rivers of purified,

00:15:45 --> 00:15:45

honey.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:48

They just run. Meaning, you don't have to

00:15:48 --> 00:15:50

You just take your cup and and listen

00:15:51 --> 00:15:52

and drink and you find that the that,

00:15:52 --> 00:15:54

the Quran even goes into more detail as

00:15:54 --> 00:15:55

we go into

00:15:55 --> 00:15:57

just just just the amma. It details this

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

a little bit more.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:02

And you'll find with in Jannah all the

00:16:02 --> 00:16:04

different types of fruits and plus all that

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

they like to eat.

00:16:06 --> 00:16:07

On top of all that, they will find

00:16:07 --> 00:16:08

the forgiveness of their Lord.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:11

Is that similar

00:16:12 --> 00:16:13

to the one who is going to spend

00:16:13 --> 00:16:15

eternity in Jahannam?

00:16:17 --> 00:16:19

And they are being given to drink boiling

00:16:19 --> 00:16:20

water.

00:16:22 --> 00:16:23

That is ripping their their intestines

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

to to shreds.

00:16:25 --> 00:16:27

Is that the same? Is someone who is

00:16:27 --> 00:16:29

in this situation? Yeah. And you're looking at

00:16:29 --> 00:16:31

all these rivers of beautiful things to drink,

00:16:31 --> 00:16:34

enjoying all of the fruits, enjoying Allah's forgiveness.

00:16:34 --> 00:16:36

Is that similar and equal to someone who

00:16:36 --> 00:16:38

was in jannah be drinking boiling water that's

00:16:38 --> 00:16:41

that's tearing tearing his his insides to shreds?

00:16:43 --> 00:16:45

Yes. It's a rhetorical question, obviously. It's not

00:16:45 --> 00:16:47

the same. But that's what he's saying, subhanahu

00:16:47 --> 00:16:48

wa ta'ala. They're not the same. Why is

00:16:48 --> 00:16:50

it difficult for you to make this decision?

00:16:51 --> 00:16:53

Well, this is why these verses are here.

00:16:53 --> 00:16:55

Why why is the decision of of doing

00:16:55 --> 00:16:57

what of of following the Prophet that's what

00:16:57 --> 00:16:59

Subhana talks about. Following the Prophet alaihis salatu

00:16:59 --> 00:17:01

wa salaam living according to his to his

00:17:01 --> 00:17:03

way. You live according to his way, your

00:17:03 --> 00:17:05

deeds are accepted. You don't? They're not. He

00:17:05 --> 00:17:06

only told you that's which is beneficial to

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

you but you have to live according to

00:17:08 --> 00:17:09

him. Why wouldn't you?

00:17:09 --> 00:17:11

This is the 2 outcomes. Are they similar

00:17:11 --> 00:17:13

in any form? Why is this a difficult

00:17:13 --> 00:17:15

decision? It shouldn't be and it isn't.

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

It really is not. This decision is simple.

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

The prophet, alayhis salatu, has only commanded you

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

that which is helpful to you in dunya

00:17:22 --> 00:17:23

and only that which will take you to

00:17:23 --> 00:17:26

a beautiful destiny on the day of judgment

00:17:26 --> 00:17:28

versus the opposite, living a life of difficulty

00:17:28 --> 00:17:30

and then finding an 'asirah of difficulty.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

And now you're gonna be mixing it up

00:17:32 --> 00:17:33

a little bit, subhanahu wa ta'ala, you're much

00:17:33 --> 00:17:35

more difficult, much more hard to make the

00:17:35 --> 00:17:36

decision. Like, if it was mixed up a

00:17:36 --> 00:17:38

bit, where following the prophet Ali of Suratuzah

00:17:38 --> 00:17:40

meant that we had to engage in self

00:17:40 --> 00:17:41

harm, that to engage

00:17:41 --> 00:17:43

in actions that would, you know, hinder our

00:17:43 --> 00:17:46

ability to be functional, take away our strength,

00:17:46 --> 00:17:47

take away our like,

00:17:48 --> 00:17:49

if following the prophet

00:17:49 --> 00:17:51

meant that you'd live a life of just

00:17:51 --> 00:17:54

agony and pain and harm, but then Jannah,

00:17:54 --> 00:17:56

versus you got to live nice and easily

00:17:56 --> 00:17:59

and beautiful and everything is all, and then

00:17:59 --> 00:18:00

go to Jahannam, then, yeah, I can see

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

this being a difficult decision, but that's not

00:18:02 --> 00:18:04

what this is at all. It's the opposite.

00:18:05 --> 00:18:07

His teachings, alayhis salazar, bring you serenity and

00:18:07 --> 00:18:08

peace,

00:18:08 --> 00:18:10

tranquility, and solace, and goodness in this life,

00:18:10 --> 00:18:13

and then leads to a to a jannah

00:18:13 --> 00:18:14

with all of these rivers that are running

00:18:14 --> 00:18:16

under you that are open for you versus

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

living a life that that has

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

there's

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

no joy there's no real joy in it.

00:18:21 --> 00:18:22

There's maybe

00:18:23 --> 00:18:25

temporary highs, but it's a life of difficulty

00:18:25 --> 00:18:27

that leads to a of difficulty. Now what

00:18:27 --> 00:18:29

I find is that people just don't understand

00:18:29 --> 00:18:31

that piece. They're like, no. No. You guy

00:18:31 --> 00:18:33

that's not what it is. Islam is difficult

00:18:33 --> 00:18:34

and being a Muslim is difficult.

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

Not really. No. It's it's difficult when you're

00:18:37 --> 00:18:39

being persecuted for doing it.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:40

That's when it's difficult.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:43

But as a as a system itself, no,

00:18:43 --> 00:18:45

it's not difficult. Not at all. And it's

00:18:45 --> 00:18:47

and it's sad that that's how we have,

00:18:48 --> 00:18:50

understood it and maybe explained it to others.

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

This is hard. This whole thing is hard.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:53

No. It's it's not. It's not.

00:18:54 --> 00:18:55

It's only as hard as it is for

00:18:55 --> 00:18:57

a an 8 year old to go to

00:18:57 --> 00:18:58

school.

00:19:00 --> 00:19:01

It's as hard as that to to to

00:19:01 --> 00:19:02

get a 9 year old to study. That

00:19:02 --> 00:19:04

that that's the difficulty. They don't want to

00:19:04 --> 00:19:06

study. They wanna do something different. But, you

00:19:06 --> 00:19:08

know, this is helpful for you. It may

00:19:08 --> 00:19:10

be complicated, but it's gonna open your mind,

00:19:10 --> 00:19:11

and that's going to bring you a lot

00:19:11 --> 00:19:12

of joy. And then your life later on,

00:19:12 --> 00:19:14

you'll be successful and intelligent will bring you

00:19:14 --> 00:19:15

joy as well. This may not be the

00:19:15 --> 00:19:16

most fun thing to do right now, but

00:19:16 --> 00:19:18

it's in your best interest in every aspect

00:19:18 --> 00:19:20

of the in every in every way. It's

00:19:20 --> 00:19:22

in your best interest. So that's how difficult

00:19:22 --> 00:19:24

Islam is. It's like asking someone to do

00:19:24 --> 00:19:26

it's just they don't want to do it.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:28

So you can either say, okay. You don't

00:19:28 --> 00:19:29

have to do it. And they said, I'll

00:19:29 --> 00:19:30

play xbox forever, and then they grow up

00:19:30 --> 00:19:32

and they amount to nothing, and they don't

00:19:32 --> 00:19:34

thank you for it later. Or you you

00:19:34 --> 00:19:36

push them, they do it, and maybe at

00:19:36 --> 00:19:37

that moment, they didn't do exactly what they

00:19:37 --> 00:19:39

wanted, but they'll thank you later when they're

00:19:39 --> 00:19:42

successful, and they have the, the the blessing

00:19:42 --> 00:19:44

of knowledge because knowledge is extremely beautiful,

00:19:44 --> 00:19:46

and that's what the prophet alaihis salam taught

00:19:46 --> 00:19:48

us. I hope that you know, it makes

00:19:48 --> 00:19:49

some sense, makes sense, makes sense to you.

00:19:49 --> 00:19:51

Alright. Let's do Surat Fat,

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

alright, number 26.

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

What's 26?

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

Yeah. Go

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

ahead.

00:20:27 --> 00:20:29

Is when you get angry or when you're

00:20:29 --> 00:20:31

willing to support something even though it doesn't

00:20:31 --> 00:20:33

make any sense. It's It's just out of

00:20:33 --> 00:20:34

the fact that you are related to them.

00:20:34 --> 00:20:36

In the Quran, you have the word jahiliyah

00:20:36 --> 00:20:37

4 times.

00:20:38 --> 00:20:39

Yeah. Four times the word jahiliyah.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:42

Anyone anyone care to so hamiyyah is one

00:20:42 --> 00:20:44

of them. Anyone know what the rest are?

00:20:45 --> 00:20:47

I did this last year, by the way.

00:20:48 --> 00:20:49

Yeah. I did this last year and no

00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

one get

00:20:50 --> 00:20:51

what else?

00:20:54 --> 00:20:56

What? No. No. What what's the word before

00:20:56 --> 00:20:57

it?

00:20:57 --> 00:20:58

I know

00:20:59 --> 00:21:00

What was before it?

00:21:02 --> 00:21:03

What else?

00:21:07 --> 00:21:08

Very good. And one more?

00:21:09 --> 00:21:10

So four things.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:11

One

00:21:13 --> 00:21:15

1, that's a that's an that's an issue

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

of aqidah.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:18

It's an issue of theology. Right?

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

Tabaruj

00:21:20 --> 00:21:22

is an issue of behavior.

00:21:22 --> 00:21:24

Now, hokom is the issue of politics and

00:21:24 --> 00:21:25

Hamiyyah is the issue of ethics.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:27

These are the 4 problems that they had.

00:21:27 --> 00:21:29

Hamiyyah is an issue of ethical problem. It's

00:21:29 --> 00:21:31

where you stand by whatever is closest to

00:21:31 --> 00:21:33

you, not which is correct.

00:21:33 --> 00:21:35

Like you don't care where justice is, you

00:21:35 --> 00:21:38

care that the person is is related to

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

you.

00:21:42 --> 00:21:43

So Right? I stand by my brother against

00:21:43 --> 00:21:45

my cousin, and I stand with my cousin

00:21:45 --> 00:21:46

against my the foreigner, and and I stand

00:21:46 --> 00:21:48

with the foreigner against who's even more foreign

00:21:48 --> 00:21:49

and it doesn't matter to me who's right

00:21:49 --> 00:21:51

or wrong. I don't care. I just do

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

whatever.

00:21:55 --> 00:21:57

I'm just I'm with my tribe. Good tribe,

00:21:57 --> 00:21:59

I'm good man. Bad tribe, I'm bad man.

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

I don't care. It doesn't matter to me

00:22:00 --> 00:22:02

anything else. This is an issue it's an

00:22:02 --> 00:22:04

ethical issue of lack of of adherence to

00:22:04 --> 00:22:07

to justice and fairness and equality and and

00:22:07 --> 00:22:08

righteousness. So if you're talking

00:22:09 --> 00:22:10

he's talking

00:22:11 --> 00:22:12

about when the prophet

00:22:14 --> 00:22:16

was going for fat for for Sunil Hudaybiyah.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

They were gonna go for umrah.

00:22:19 --> 00:22:20

They were wearing a Haram. They had the

00:22:20 --> 00:22:23

hadi. They did not come armed. They came

00:22:23 --> 00:22:25

for umrah and they were denied.

00:22:25 --> 00:22:28

It's never happened before. Historically, the only times

00:22:28 --> 00:22:29

this happened, there was a war that happened

00:22:29 --> 00:22:30

right after it. Like, there's 2 or 3

00:22:30 --> 00:22:34

times historically where whoever was taking care of,

00:22:34 --> 00:22:36

of Mecca or the Kaaba decided to deny

00:22:36 --> 00:22:38

another group from, from Umrah or Hajj. It

00:22:38 --> 00:22:40

was war. And it led to the people

00:22:40 --> 00:22:42

who were running and they were taking care

00:22:42 --> 00:22:44

of Mecca to be removed. Like the and

00:22:44 --> 00:22:45

they were for a while, they were the

00:22:45 --> 00:22:47

people who were taking care of Mecca. They

00:22:47 --> 00:22:49

had removed Quraysh or they removed the descendants

00:22:49 --> 00:22:50

of Ishmael alaihi salam, and then they did

00:22:50 --> 00:22:52

that and they So, historically, we studied the

00:22:52 --> 00:22:54

Arabic history. This happened a few times, always

00:22:54 --> 00:22:56

led to a huge war. So they're denying

00:22:56 --> 00:22:58

the prophet of alayhi sallam the Muslims coming.

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

And

00:22:59 --> 00:23:00

when the disbelievers

00:23:01 --> 00:23:02

when they put in their hearts

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

that

00:23:05 --> 00:23:05

that bigotry,

00:23:06 --> 00:23:09

that racism, that biased approach to

00:23:12 --> 00:23:14

the And he and he refers to this

00:23:14 --> 00:23:15

hamia coming from jahiliyah.

00:23:15 --> 00:23:17

And all hamia is jahiliyah.

00:23:18 --> 00:23:19

Hamia is not a good thing.

00:23:20 --> 00:23:21

It's not a good thing to have where

00:23:21 --> 00:23:24

you're you support just based on the merit

00:23:24 --> 00:23:26

of of of relate of blood

00:23:26 --> 00:23:27

or just based on the fact that you

00:23:27 --> 00:23:28

know someone. Is

00:23:29 --> 00:23:31

that what the prophet alaihis salatu wasalam taught?

00:23:31 --> 00:23:33

No. He said, al alakhaqa walimaaomavluma.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:35

So you know Sahaba said, woah,

00:23:35 --> 00:23:37

vavluma, I get it, but walima, you've been

00:23:37 --> 00:23:39

that's not what you've been teaching us.

00:23:41 --> 00:23:43

He said, you you hold them back from

00:23:43 --> 00:23:45

performing their oppression. That's how you stand by

00:23:45 --> 00:23:47

them. You stand by your relatives when they

00:23:47 --> 00:23:49

are oppressive by making sure that you don't

00:23:49 --> 00:23:51

allow them to oppress because you have that

00:23:51 --> 00:23:53

connection. You can. You can hinder it. You

00:23:53 --> 00:23:55

can hold it down. You can stop it.

00:23:55 --> 00:23:57

But you don't support them in their active

00:23:57 --> 00:23:59

oppression because they're family or because they're blood.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:00

That's a jahiliyyah.

00:24:01 --> 00:24:02

That's an active jahiliyyah.

00:24:06 --> 00:24:07

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala when they did that

00:24:08 --> 00:24:10

when the mushrikeen with the guffar did that

00:24:10 --> 00:24:11

and they and they openly

00:24:12 --> 00:24:13

just broke the law of the land and

00:24:13 --> 00:24:15

they acted in a way that is unfair

00:24:16 --> 00:24:18

and based on hamiyyah. Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:24:18 --> 00:24:19

put serenity in the heart of the prophet

00:24:19 --> 00:24:21

alaihis salatu wa sallam and the believers.

00:24:23 --> 00:24:25

And he had them stand by the word

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

of taqwa.

00:24:27 --> 00:24:28

Why? Because if he didn't, then they would

00:24:28 --> 00:24:30

also end up with hamiyya.

00:24:31 --> 00:24:32

Because if I have hamiyya, then you'll probably

00:24:32 --> 00:24:33

do the same unless

00:24:35 --> 00:24:37

unless he has you hold down to the

00:24:37 --> 00:24:39

word of Taqwa or which is or or

00:24:39 --> 00:24:41

the teaching of Taqwa. If I call upon

00:24:41 --> 00:24:42

my family, yeah, if I say, if I

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

say, what

00:24:43 --> 00:24:45

are you gonna do the same? Then you're

00:24:45 --> 00:24:47

equal to me. I I started it,

00:24:47 --> 00:24:48

Granted I started it, but doesn't make a

00:24:48 --> 00:24:50

difference. You're down you're now down in the

00:24:50 --> 00:24:52

in the mud with me, and no one

00:24:52 --> 00:24:54

really cares who began these these things. Unless

00:24:54 --> 00:24:55

you are

00:24:56 --> 00:24:57

You hold on to the word of taqwah

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

and you refuse to engage in that type

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00

of bigotry.

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

Yes. They are acting in a way that

00:25:01 --> 00:25:04

is racist, but we won't respond in that

00:25:04 --> 00:25:06

same manner. Yes. They say racist things. They

00:25:06 --> 00:25:08

behave in racist manner.

00:25:09 --> 00:25:10

They look at a group of people and

00:25:10 --> 00:25:12

they don't see value to their lives. They

00:25:12 --> 00:25:14

don't see value to their opinions, but we

00:25:14 --> 00:25:15

don't do the same. We don't reciprocate

00:25:16 --> 00:25:19

because that's not kalimatat taqwa. That's their

00:25:19 --> 00:25:20

it's

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

and we refuse it. We refuse it, and

00:25:23 --> 00:25:26

we will not be dragged into that. We

00:25:26 --> 00:25:27

won't be dragged into that as Muslims. We

00:25:27 --> 00:25:29

will continue to hold ourselves to claim with

00:25:29 --> 00:25:30

the taqwa.

00:25:32 --> 00:25:34

And you deserve to be to to be

00:25:34 --> 00:25:36

given that word to hold on to it.

00:25:36 --> 00:25:38

And they were the people who actually did

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

it appropriately.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:41

Allah knows all.

00:25:42 --> 00:25:43

So be careful.

00:25:43 --> 00:25:45

Be careful when you're oppressed to allow the

00:25:45 --> 00:25:48

oppressor to pull you into a jahiliyah,

00:25:48 --> 00:25:49

into a jahiliyah

00:25:49 --> 00:25:50

because they are

00:25:51 --> 00:25:53

in that state. Because they want you to.

00:25:53 --> 00:25:54

Because the moment you do it, then it

00:25:54 --> 00:25:57

get the lines get blurred and your heart

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

gets lost and your claim is weaker. When

00:26:00 --> 00:26:01

you hold yourself

00:26:01 --> 00:26:03

when you stay principled,

00:26:03 --> 00:26:06

regardless of how unprincipled the enemy is, or

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

the other party. No matter how devious, how

00:26:09 --> 00:26:10

dirty,

00:26:10 --> 00:26:12

how malicious the other group is, you hold

00:26:12 --> 00:26:15

your ground. You hold your ethical ground. You

00:26:15 --> 00:26:16

don't sell out. You don't allow them to

00:26:16 --> 00:26:18

pull you into something that is you know

00:26:18 --> 00:26:19

who's wrong.

00:26:20 --> 00:26:23

Never has it ever been acceptable to be

00:26:23 --> 00:26:25

wrong because the other group is wrong. When

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

was that argument ever accept? When do you

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

have you ever accepted that argument in your

00:26:28 --> 00:26:29

own house or in a school or in

00:26:29 --> 00:26:31

a workplace? Never. Why is it acceptable on

00:26:31 --> 00:26:33

a bigger scale? It's not, and as Muslims,

00:26:33 --> 00:26:35

you have to hold our our ethical ground

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

or else there's, you know, there's no point

00:26:36 --> 00:26:37

of any of this.

00:26:38 --> 00:26:40

Alright. Let's do Surat Surat al Ayah number

00:26:40 --> 00:26:40

14.

00:27:09 --> 00:27:11

This is a, a hallmark verse in the

00:27:11 --> 00:27:13

Quran. You must you must know this ayah

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

very well.

00:27:14 --> 00:27:15

Like out of all the you have to

00:27:15 --> 00:27:16

know this one. You have to know it.

00:27:16 --> 00:27:18

I know the one before it's more famous,

00:27:19 --> 00:27:21

know this one because it tells something it

00:27:21 --> 00:27:22

tells us something that we should know about

00:27:22 --> 00:27:23

ourselves and about reality.

00:27:24 --> 00:27:26

The Bedouins who came and accepted Islam late,

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

they accepted Islam late late late in his

00:27:28 --> 00:27:30

life alaihis salatu wa sallam after almost everything

00:27:30 --> 00:27:31

was done. After all the work, all the

00:27:31 --> 00:27:34

heavy lifting was done, they came. After

00:27:34 --> 00:27:35

and

00:27:36 --> 00:27:37

and and Tabuk and Al Khayeb, but all

00:27:37 --> 00:27:39

this stuff was done. They came in and

00:27:39 --> 00:27:40

they expected

00:27:41 --> 00:27:42

to be treated like everyone else, and they

00:27:42 --> 00:27:44

expected to have exact same status as everyone

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

else.

00:27:47 --> 00:27:48

He treated them well

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

He dignified them. But they came in and

00:27:50 --> 00:27:51

they said something,

00:27:52 --> 00:27:53

We have

00:27:54 --> 00:27:56

So Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala respond and say

00:27:56 --> 00:27:58

that's what they're saying. Tell them this.

00:27:58 --> 00:28:01

You're not yet. Iman is a is a

00:28:01 --> 00:28:02

deeper,

00:28:02 --> 00:28:03

level

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

of,

00:28:04 --> 00:28:06

of belief. I I don't like the word

00:28:06 --> 00:28:07

belief. It's just a bad word. Islam in

00:28:07 --> 00:28:08

in our deen,

00:28:09 --> 00:28:11

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala identifies that there are

00:28:11 --> 00:28:13

2 multiple levels of, of consciousness

00:28:14 --> 00:28:16

and consciousness acceptance

00:28:16 --> 00:28:18

of values. They're not it's not one

00:28:19 --> 00:28:20

level. There's a superficial level which is where

00:28:20 --> 00:28:22

you just you give your shahada and you

00:28:22 --> 00:28:25

accept Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. It's now nice

00:28:25 --> 00:28:27

in that superficial level of your of your

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

consciousness.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:29

You have a lot of stuff like that.

00:28:29 --> 00:28:30

All of the things that you believe is

00:28:30 --> 00:28:31

correct but you don't do that's right where

00:28:31 --> 00:28:33

they are. Everything that you know is right

00:28:33 --> 00:28:35

but you don't do it. It lives in

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

the superficial part of your consciousness. The stuff

00:28:37 --> 00:28:39

that you believe in and do, that's what

00:28:39 --> 00:28:41

you actually have in as that we can

00:28:41 --> 00:28:43

talk about iman. So someone we have a

00:28:43 --> 00:28:44

lot of that stuff. Yeah. A lot of

00:28:44 --> 00:28:45

us believe you should eat healthy. We don't

00:28:46 --> 00:28:47

Sleep early. We don't. Yeah. I need to

00:28:47 --> 00:28:48

spend more time with our kids. We don't.

00:28:48 --> 00:28:50

All the stuff we know is correct. We

00:28:50 --> 00:28:52

don't do it. It's in our superficial, yeah,

00:28:52 --> 00:28:54

any aspect of our consciousness. Now, for it

00:28:54 --> 00:28:55

to go into deeper, it requires a lot

00:28:55 --> 00:28:56

of contemplation,

00:28:56 --> 00:28:59

reflection, and it requires changes in lifestyle, changes

00:28:59 --> 00:29:01

in companionship, and environment

00:29:01 --> 00:29:03

requires it requires some changes in your in

00:29:03 --> 00:29:04

your life to bring for it to be

00:29:04 --> 00:29:05

absorbed.

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

So

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

you don't have not achieved the iman yet.

00:29:11 --> 00:29:13

Say, forgive me. Islam now we have accepted

00:29:13 --> 00:29:14

Islam.

00:29:17 --> 00:29:19

And yet and it has yet to be

00:29:19 --> 00:29:21

for iman to enter inside to the heart

00:29:21 --> 00:29:23

inside the hearts. Like, it's not there yet.

00:29:26 --> 00:29:28

But if you obey Allah subhanahu wa'ala as

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

prophet,

00:29:30 --> 00:29:31

then you will get there and you will

00:29:31 --> 00:29:32

not be

00:29:33 --> 00:29:36

mistreated regarding the the the of your good

00:29:36 --> 00:29:37

in Allahu Akhoor Rahi.

00:29:38 --> 00:29:40

So this ayah tells us something about, you

00:29:40 --> 00:29:41

know, how this deen works.

00:29:42 --> 00:29:44

That if you want to see or be

00:29:44 --> 00:29:45

seen as a mumin when he

00:29:46 --> 00:29:48

says when he's dressing you, then iman has

00:29:48 --> 00:29:50

to be something like you internalize. It has

00:29:50 --> 00:29:52

to be something that dictates behavior. Has to

00:29:52 --> 00:29:54

go from a superficial existence to a much

00:29:54 --> 00:29:56

more profound one where you have internalized what

00:29:56 --> 00:29:58

it means, to accept.

00:29:59 --> 00:30:01

What that means to you and how that's

00:30:01 --> 00:30:03

going to affect your life moving forward. Because

00:30:03 --> 00:30:04

if it doesn't,

00:30:06 --> 00:30:08

anyone can give shahada really.

00:30:09 --> 00:30:12

Anyone can say can say the words. How

00:30:12 --> 00:30:13

hard is it? It's not that hard.

00:30:14 --> 00:30:15

Even if they don't mean it, they can

00:30:15 --> 00:30:17

say it. A lot of people do.

00:30:18 --> 00:30:20

And I have no I have no access.

00:30:20 --> 00:30:21

I I have no right to tell them,

00:30:21 --> 00:30:23

oh, you're not. You're Muslim. That's not in

00:30:23 --> 00:30:25

my business. By the way, this ayah

00:30:26 --> 00:30:27

is God himself speaking.

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

No one else. I can't come and say,

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

okay, no, you're not Mu'tman yet, you need

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

to. I don't know. How I What what

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

do I know? I don't know. I don't

00:30:33 --> 00:30:34

I don't even know if I am.

00:30:35 --> 00:30:36

I'm scared

00:30:36 --> 00:30:38

that I'm not, and I have to focus

00:30:38 --> 00:30:40

on that. I can't I can't come and

00:30:40 --> 00:30:42

tell you what you are. But Allah subhanahu

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

wa ta'ala since he said something to a

00:30:43 --> 00:30:44

group of people

00:30:44 --> 00:30:46

that gives us

00:30:46 --> 00:30:48

a way to under It gives us insight

00:30:48 --> 00:30:50

on the reality of things so that we

00:30:50 --> 00:30:52

can hold ourselves accountable to it. So I

00:30:52 --> 00:30:54

don't know. Someone come and say,

00:30:54 --> 00:30:55

that moment they have more iman in their

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

hearts maybe than I ever will. I don't

00:30:57 --> 00:30:59

know. There's no way to know. But what

00:30:59 --> 00:31:01

I do understand from this is that there's

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

different layers

00:31:02 --> 00:31:04

That Islam is 1, iman is something different.

00:31:04 --> 00:31:06

Iman is not just believing in something. Iman

00:31:06 --> 00:31:07

is when it's internalized.

00:31:08 --> 00:31:10

When it when it's the fuel,

00:31:10 --> 00:31:12

it's the it's the values and it's the

00:31:12 --> 00:31:15

principles that direct and guide your lifestyle. That's

00:31:15 --> 00:31:16

what iman is.

00:31:16 --> 00:31:18

It's a beautiful thing to have. Having iman

00:31:18 --> 00:31:20

is very, very valuable. It's very, precious.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:22

It's very precious.

00:31:23 --> 00:31:24

Those who,

00:31:26 --> 00:31:28

Yani, Khirakkil, when he was speaking to Abu

00:31:28 --> 00:31:30

Sufyan in the long story where Abu Sufyan,

00:31:30 --> 00:31:34

Yani met the Roman empire emperor. He spoke

00:31:34 --> 00:31:35

to him or at least one of the

00:31:35 --> 00:31:37

higher ranked, Yani,

00:31:37 --> 00:31:38

princes,

00:31:38 --> 00:31:40

and he was asking him about the prophet

00:31:40 --> 00:31:41

alaihis salaam. It's a long story.

00:31:42 --> 00:31:44

He asked him, does anyone who follow him

00:31:44 --> 00:31:45

Do the people who follow him,

00:31:46 --> 00:31:49

commit apostasy? They leave. They decide not to

00:31:49 --> 00:31:50

do it anymore. It was if you had

00:31:50 --> 00:31:52

to be and he he was told, like,

00:31:52 --> 00:31:53

if you're not honest, then the people behind

00:31:53 --> 00:31:54

you will let me know and I'll and

00:31:54 --> 00:31:56

your head will fly so high that you'll

00:31:56 --> 00:31:58

be looking at your body from under a

00:31:58 --> 00:31:59

day. You'll die immediately. You have to say

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

so he was scared because everyone behind him

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

hated him. So he he want had to

00:32:02 --> 00:32:03

be honest. So he told him,

00:32:04 --> 00:32:06

I'm not aware of anyone who accepted Islam

00:32:06 --> 00:32:08

and left it. If there's 1 or 2

00:32:08 --> 00:32:09

examples, I'm not aware of them. And there

00:32:09 --> 00:32:11

were 1 or 2 examples throughout his life

00:32:11 --> 00:32:12

alaihis salazar. And there's a few there's a

00:32:12 --> 00:32:14

minority of people who who left, but the

00:32:14 --> 00:32:16

majority didn't. So what his answer was, he

00:32:16 --> 00:32:17

said

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

And then that is the and and that

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

is the reality of the light of iman

00:32:26 --> 00:32:28

when it when it's mixed with the heart,

00:32:28 --> 00:32:30

the human being finds such joy that you'll

00:32:30 --> 00:32:31

never leave leave it again.

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

Once he once once you taste iman and

00:32:34 --> 00:32:35

you find the beauty and the joy of

00:32:35 --> 00:32:37

iman, you'll never leave it again. You will

00:32:37 --> 00:32:39

never choose anything over it ever again for

00:32:39 --> 00:32:40

the rest of your life,

00:32:40 --> 00:32:42

which is what we try and ask this

00:32:42 --> 00:32:43

is what we ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:32:43 --> 00:32:44

for during these nights.

00:32:45 --> 00:32:47

That's what we're asking for, subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:32:48 --> 00:32:49

Put iman in our hearts so that we

00:32:49 --> 00:32:51

find that joy and that beauty so we

00:32:51 --> 00:32:52

never leave it ever again for the rest

00:32:52 --> 00:32:54

of our lives. That's what we're asking for.

00:32:54 --> 00:32:56

You come here, you Rabbi choose me, fill

00:32:56 --> 00:32:57

my heart with iman.

00:32:58 --> 00:32:59

That's what you're asking for. That's what exists

00:32:59 --> 00:33:01

at the beginning of that surah. Right?

00:33:02 --> 00:33:02

Yeah.

00:33:03 --> 00:33:04

Right? And so it's the same surah at

00:33:04 --> 00:33:05

the beginning

00:33:06 --> 00:33:09

was and he made imal beloved to them

00:33:09 --> 00:33:10

and he made it beautiful. He beautified it

00:33:10 --> 00:33:12

in their hearts so they they'll never leave

00:33:12 --> 00:33:13

it. We'll never give it up.

00:33:15 --> 00:33:16

And that's what we hope for, and that's

00:33:16 --> 00:33:17

what we look for. And that's why this

00:33:17 --> 00:33:18

ayah to me is is extremely important for

00:33:18 --> 00:33:19

us to understand. Let's do qaf,

00:33:20 --> 00:33:20

19.

00:33:35 --> 00:33:36

And the intoxicating

00:33:36 --> 00:33:39

moment of death comes and it comes with

00:33:39 --> 00:33:41

righteousness. That's what this ayah says.

00:33:42 --> 00:33:44

And it comes. You don't go after death.

00:33:44 --> 00:33:45

Death comes after you.

00:33:46 --> 00:33:48

We actually spend most of our lives running

00:33:48 --> 00:33:50

away from death, and death finds us.

00:33:52 --> 00:33:55

Not not not not not death comes.

00:33:56 --> 00:33:57

The intoxicating

00:33:57 --> 00:33:59

pain, the intoxicating moment of death.

00:34:00 --> 00:34:02

Is is when something when you feel intoxicated.

00:34:02 --> 00:34:04

And intoxication doesn't always have to come from

00:34:04 --> 00:34:07

joy. Intoxication comes from fear. Intoxication can come

00:34:07 --> 00:34:08

from pain as well.

00:34:09 --> 00:34:11

And the intoxicating moment of death is a

00:34:11 --> 00:34:12

mix of both fear and pain.

00:34:13 --> 00:34:14

If there's a little bit of joy in

00:34:14 --> 00:34:16

it, it comes from the mumin knowing that

00:34:16 --> 00:34:17

what's next is going to be better than

00:34:17 --> 00:34:18

what he's leaving.

00:34:19 --> 00:34:21

If there's any amount of joy in it,

00:34:21 --> 00:34:22

it's from the mumin

00:34:23 --> 00:34:26

having hope that what's coming next is next

00:34:26 --> 00:34:28

is better than what they're leaving behind them.

00:34:28 --> 00:34:30

But for the majority of us, it's going

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

to be a fear and it's going to

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

be pain, and that's just something that's going

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

to happen to all of us. There's no

00:34:36 --> 00:34:37

there's no way out of it. No matter

00:34:37 --> 00:34:40

how easy your death is, there will be

00:34:40 --> 00:34:43

a moment of of that intoxicating fear.

00:34:46 --> 00:34:48

Is going to come to you righteously so.

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

It's going to come to you righteously

00:34:51 --> 00:34:52

as it as you were promised.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:55

See, if it wasn't Bilhaqq, it meant that

00:34:55 --> 00:34:56

you you know, if you're if you're sabotaged,

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

if you were surprised by something no one

00:34:59 --> 00:35:00

told you about, that was that's not Bilhaqq.

00:35:01 --> 00:35:03

This is because you've been told you're going

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

to die.

00:35:04 --> 00:35:05

K? Going to die.

00:35:05 --> 00:35:06

A 100%.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:09

There's nothing a 100% in this world aside

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

from this.

00:35:10 --> 00:35:12

Everything else is always a small

00:35:12 --> 00:35:15

small percentage of it not working except this.

00:35:15 --> 00:35:17

You're 100% going to die. A 100 years

00:35:17 --> 00:35:18

from now, not one person sitting here will

00:35:18 --> 00:35:19

still be here.

00:35:21 --> 00:35:22

A 100 years from now, everyone in this

00:35:22 --> 00:35:23

room will be dead.

00:35:24 --> 00:35:25

It's 2024.

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

In 21, 24,

00:35:27 --> 00:35:29

none of us will be here.

00:35:29 --> 00:35:31

What this place will look like and what

00:35:31 --> 00:35:32

this community will look like will be based

00:35:32 --> 00:35:34

heavily on what we decide to do over

00:35:34 --> 00:35:36

the next 30 to 40 years of our

00:35:36 --> 00:35:37

lives, but you won't be here.

00:35:38 --> 00:35:40

And very few people will be saying, how

00:35:40 --> 00:35:41

many of you right now are sitting and

00:35:41 --> 00:35:42

thinking about their grandparents?

00:35:44 --> 00:35:45

How many times do you think about them?

00:35:45 --> 00:35:47

They passed away. They passed away. How many

00:35:47 --> 00:35:49

times do you think about? Once every but

00:35:49 --> 00:35:50

if you really love them, once a week

00:35:50 --> 00:35:52

maybe, you really love them. That's it. You're

00:35:52 --> 00:35:54

just a memory that's once every 7 days

00:35:54 --> 00:35:56

that comes up. And then a few years

00:35:56 --> 00:35:58

pass and not even that. And then another

00:35:58 --> 00:35:59

generation comes, and

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

they'll drop your name in the in the

00:36:01 --> 00:36:03

lineage and forget about you, and no one

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

even care.

00:36:05 --> 00:36:06

Yeah. Yeah. There was Muhammad somewhere there. I

00:36:06 --> 00:36:08

don't know. It was the son of this

00:36:08 --> 00:36:09

one, the father of that one. I don't

00:36:09 --> 00:36:12

know. Whatever. The old Muhammad's just what whatever

00:36:12 --> 00:36:13

he wants.

00:36:13 --> 00:36:15

Yeah. There was Ali here somewhere. I'm not

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

sure where.

00:36:17 --> 00:36:18

You you think that at least at least

00:36:18 --> 00:36:20

nowhere. I I had a father. I had

00:36:20 --> 00:36:22

a son. I I lived the life. Yeah.

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

I don't care.

00:36:23 --> 00:36:24

I don't care. I have my own life.

00:36:24 --> 00:36:26

I don't care. You live Joseph. I don't

00:36:26 --> 00:36:27

care who who's your father was and who

00:36:27 --> 00:36:28

your son was. I know that these are

00:36:28 --> 00:36:29

the people who are in my lineage. I

00:36:29 --> 00:36:31

don't care exactly how they how they're sequenced.

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

You know, It's the reality of it. That's

00:36:33 --> 00:36:35

the reality of it. So when you know

00:36:35 --> 00:36:37

that, you figure out that piece and you

00:36:37 --> 00:36:39

actually internalize that piece. Like, it's you understand

00:36:39 --> 00:36:41

it, then you stop holding on to something

00:36:41 --> 00:36:42

that's going that's not yours.

00:36:43 --> 00:36:44

You don't really own.

00:36:46 --> 00:36:48

This is what you've been running away from

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

all your life.

00:36:49 --> 00:36:51

Yeah. This is what you've been avoiding all

00:36:51 --> 00:36:53

of your life. You've been avoiding it, not

00:36:53 --> 00:36:55

just physically even avoiding it mentally. You don't

00:36:55 --> 00:36:57

wanna think about it. You want me to

00:36:57 --> 00:36:58

move on to something different.

00:36:58 --> 00:37:00

Talk about the ayat sudasariyah.

00:37:00 --> 00:37:02

Move on to something different. We all want

00:37:02 --> 00:37:04

to avoid talking about death because it ruins.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:06

Hadim ul lazat. It takes away all the

00:37:06 --> 00:37:07

joy.

00:37:07 --> 00:37:09

With with the there's a death in a

00:37:09 --> 00:37:09

family.

00:37:10 --> 00:37:12

Is all however you wanna say. I remember

00:37:12 --> 00:37:13

when someone passed away and when I was

00:37:13 --> 00:37:14

a kid, it ruined things. When I was

00:37:14 --> 00:37:16

a kid, I didn't care. I didn't care.

00:37:16 --> 00:37:17

I'm sure the person mattered a lot. He

00:37:17 --> 00:37:18

was an uncle.

00:37:19 --> 00:37:20

It would have been nice to meet him.

00:37:20 --> 00:37:21

But I was a kid, and I went

00:37:21 --> 00:37:22

to have fun, and now everyone's sad, so

00:37:22 --> 00:37:24

I just don't sound acting like I'm sad

00:37:24 --> 00:37:25

like everyone else.

00:37:29 --> 00:37:31

And that intoxicating moment of death comes to

00:37:31 --> 00:37:34

you in fear and pain righteously as you

00:37:34 --> 00:37:36

were promised, this is what you've been avoiding

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

the entirety of your life.

00:37:38 --> 00:37:40

And if that's not enough as a remembrance,

00:37:40 --> 00:37:42

then I don't know what will be. Let's

00:37:42 --> 00:37:44

do we have 1 more minute. So let's

00:37:44 --> 00:37:46

just, what I'm gonna choose here.

00:37:47 --> 00:37:48

We have 3 more surahs that I can't

00:37:48 --> 00:37:50

really cover anything of. So I'll do just

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

the

00:37:51 --> 00:37:53

the 32¢ is the highest voted one.

00:37:53 --> 00:37:54

32.

00:37:54 --> 00:37:56

32. Oh, sorry. Yeah. 32.

00:37:57 --> 00:37:58

You'll quickly have 2 more minutes.

00:38:25 --> 00:38:27

So Floss account Ara offers this beautiful ayat

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

that Sheikh Harish, I think last night explained,

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

out of coincidence. Well, I didn't, I didn't

00:38:31 --> 00:38:32

know what 32 was.

00:38:35 --> 00:38:36

And those who avoid

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

the is sin.

00:38:40 --> 00:38:42

Are the large sin, the cardinal sins.

00:38:42 --> 00:38:44

He's talking about those who are going to

00:38:44 --> 00:38:45

make it. It.

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

And

00:38:50 --> 00:38:52

acts of heinous acts of of sin and

00:38:52 --> 00:38:54

it's usually sexual in nature, meaning there's there's

00:38:55 --> 00:38:56

integrity that's being violated.

00:38:57 --> 00:39:00

So cardinal sin such as murder and stealing

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

and lying and harming other people. What if

00:39:03 --> 00:39:05

acts of and stuff that are similar to

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

that?

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

In Arabic,

00:39:09 --> 00:39:12

What is what if you're sweeping the the

00:39:12 --> 00:39:13

the floor and there's some

00:39:14 --> 00:39:16

things on there, it's called luma.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:19

From it, we say the word

00:39:19 --> 00:39:20

which is garbage. Lumaama is something that you

00:39:20 --> 00:39:23

just it's whatever a Brazilian Jew is left

00:39:23 --> 00:39:26

of, yani threads and and wrappers and whatnot.

00:39:26 --> 00:39:26

It's called lama.

00:39:27 --> 00:39:29

So Allah sub a'adah is referring to small

00:39:29 --> 00:39:31

sin or sin that that is,

00:39:31 --> 00:39:33

that is not cardinal that

00:39:33 --> 00:39:35

meaning people who are going to make

00:39:35 --> 00:39:37

are the ones who avoid the big stuff.

00:39:38 --> 00:39:40

And even if they fall into the lemmam

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

here and there and no. It's not lemmam

00:39:42 --> 00:39:44

as I said that night. It's lemmam. It's

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

very

00:39:44 --> 00:39:46

different. Is you you stay away from the

00:39:46 --> 00:39:48

smalls and the stuff that you're is almost

00:39:49 --> 00:39:51

unavoidable. The stuff that you can't help but

00:39:51 --> 00:39:52

you're going to do. You're gonna say something

00:39:52 --> 00:39:54

you shouldn't have said, look somewhere you shouldn't

00:39:54 --> 00:39:56

have looked, thought something you shouldn't have thought.

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

That's going to happen.

00:39:59 --> 00:40:02

Your lord encompasses everything with his forgiveness. He'll

00:40:02 --> 00:40:04

he'll forgive it. No problem. Just stay away

00:40:04 --> 00:40:05

from the big stuff. Yeah.

00:40:06 --> 00:40:07

Stay away from the big stuff. I'll end

00:40:07 --> 00:40:09

with that because we're it's time to go
