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

Today,

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

we,

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

will recite

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

until the end of Surah Al Haqaf, which

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

is the end of the,

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

the costar of surahs that we were talking

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

about yesterday,

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

the haamim. So we actually will will complete

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

the haamim. Won't do anything more. And tomorrow

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

I get to talk about a new group

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

of Suraj. It's always nice if I can,

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

limit my,

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

my talks on on a small group of

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

Suraj. So I'll try and do next year

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

in terms of the breakdown. I didn't do

00:00:27--> 00:00:27

a very we didn't do a very good

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

job in in watching out for that piece

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

when we broke it down this year. Next

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

year we'll try to try to, stick to

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

end of clusters if possible.

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

So the I mean, from, ghafir to the

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

end of akhab, which is basically ghafir, fosurat,

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

shura, zukhufadukhan, jafir, lakha, to the 7 surahs.

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

And they are

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

all advice and warnings on the way of

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

dawah, like, on the way of of of

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

spreading the message to people

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

different than the cluster earlier from israelat to

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

a number that talked about taking the message

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

on a societal level. Like, actually taking it

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

as in establishing a civilization for it and

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

and stabilizing it and what that requires, which

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

is a different, discussion of when those sort

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

of talked about things are a bit more

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

operational, a little bit more higher,

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

higher higher level,

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

thought processes. Here is

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

And al Hawamim, that's all that's really what

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

they do. They just offer you some pieces

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

some important pieces of advice, to follow. And

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

so the prophet talks about, the first piece,

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

which is taking it taking it to those

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

who who, to argue against it. Like, don't

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

don't take it only to those who are

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

asking for it or looking for it, but

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

also take it to those who don't want

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

it. Yeah, you take it

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

and and and have the arguments with them

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

or the discussions or the conversations and do

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

that while you're connected to Allah. I mean,

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

you have to do do that parallel with

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

your own dua.

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

And that's why this surah emphasizes ladinu shaddiloon

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

and dua. Like, these two concepts of

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

you doing your job but keeping that connection

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

alive with Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And Surah

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

al Fulsilah talks about the fact that dawah

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

is best done with behavior. It's just best

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

better done in behave with behaviors,

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

because people who are who refuse to listen,

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

they bring upon themselves punishment. If they won't

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

even listen to what you have to say,

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

then you actually put them out you jeopardize

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

them and you put yourself but if you

00:02:07--> 00:02:10

don't necessarily push that that agenda and you

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

and you focus on achievements and

00:02:13--> 00:02:16

accomplishments and character and ethics, you actually do

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

a better job and it and it affects

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

people more. And not to say that you

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

shouldn't do it verbally, but that's what that's

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

what's going to make an argument

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

for it, for behaviour. And then the final

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

one is what the shura talks about having

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

reference points,

00:02:27--> 00:02:27

having

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

originality

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

in terms of your values,

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

and one of those being shura. One of

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

the central ones being working as a group,

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

working as a as a as a community,

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

consultation

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

and not really moving in a direction without

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

making sure the community is actually, in agreement

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

with that movement. That's very important. If you

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

want to perform dawah, this is going to

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

be needed. And those are the 3 pieces

00:02:47--> 00:02:50

of advice that these surahs offer. So the

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

other 3 that we're going to recite today,

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

they offer some warnings. Zukhref warns you from

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

the mentality of materialism. And I talked about

00:02:58--> 00:03:00

this maybe 2 years ago after Fajr,

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

during weekends. We did tafsir through to Zukruf

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

and I went through the whole surah. It

00:03:04--> 00:03:07

talks about the pitfall of materialistic thinking and

00:03:07--> 00:03:08

how that causes a lot like, if you're

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

if you're materialistic in the way that you

00:03:10--> 00:03:13

look at things zukruv. Zukruv is adornments or,

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

you know, how things are

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

made flashy or they look good.

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

They look pretty, even though they may not

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

have substance to them. If you go materialistic

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

in how you judge things, you run masajid

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

like businesses. If you run, you know, daw

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

like businesses, you look at communities as if

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

you're running a

00:03:28--> 00:03:30

it it it doesn't work out. Like, it

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

doesn't that's not gonna that's not that's not

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

gonna work. In your in your path of

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

dua, you have to be able to see

00:03:34--> 00:03:37

beyond beyond the the materialistic

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

aspect of it all.

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

And and the surah talks about that in

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

many ways, and it gives a lot of

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

examples. And if we do a few verses,

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

though, it'll become clear to you, inshallah.

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

Surat,

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

Duqan talks about the illusion.

00:03:56--> 00:03:59

The illusion. Thinking having delusional thinking. Thinking in

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

a way where you're not you're not realistic,

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

you're not logical.

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

You're not preparing yourself for what is to

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

come, like you're not you're not reading the

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

signs

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

of what's happening around you, and you're and

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

you're, you know, engaging in delusional thinking, which

00:04:12--> 00:04:13

is a big problem.

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

Again,

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

all these things that these sort of talk

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

about, I mean,

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

it's exactly what we have to take time

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

and really contemplate.

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

This is exactly what our problems are. We're

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

not reading the science. When you're not reading

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

the science of what's what's actually occurring within

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

your society or or coming towards your community

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

or what what you're at jeopardy

00:04:29--> 00:04:30

for,

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

then you can't protect yourself. And if you

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

engage in delusional thinking, where you just tell

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

yourself lies, so that you feel better about

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

where you are, then you're dooming yourself. And

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

that's why I complain a lot about things,

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

And so I keep on, you know, pushing

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

and pointing out problems because I find it

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

to be

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

problematic or scary if we, you know, if

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

we're going to ignore what's occurring around us,

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

ignoring all the signs, and we ignore the

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

fact that we're seeing problems and we're seeing

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

deficits and we're seeing gaps and we're not

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

trying to fix them, and that we are

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

engaging in a lot of this, kind of,

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

you know, cloud optimism, where you just yeah,

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

everything is good. Everything is doing great. We're

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

all it's not. And it doesn't mean that

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

it can't be. It just means that it's

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

not right now. And

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

and being able to see the signs of

00:05:12--> 00:05:14

that and think logically about it, I think,

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

is

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

I think is important. And then Surat Al

00:05:17--> 00:05:20

Jati talks about it it, warns so Surat

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

Zukh warns from materialistic

00:05:22--> 00:05:25

mentality. Surat Al Dukhaim warns from delusional thinking

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

and lack of reading signs and seeing things

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

for what they are.

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

So the Zazakih warns

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

from arrogance when you have knowledge,

00:05:33--> 00:05:35

because as Muslims, you'll see yourself to be

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

a little bit more knowledgeable, because when you

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

learn the Quran, you learn the the the

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

values and the principles the Quran teaches.

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

It's it's very profound.

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

It opens your mind and you end up,

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

you know, understanding things that maybe a lot

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

of people don't fully understand. And you appreciate

00:05:48--> 00:05:51

things that maybe not everyone appreciates. So you

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

have a bit more knowledge.

00:05:52--> 00:05:54

But if that if that leaves somehow to

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

arrogance, which is what Suttl Jaffee warns of,

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

then it's

00:05:58--> 00:06:00

downfall from there. Like, you don't you you

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

can't recover from it.

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

You cannot allow the elm that you have

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

or the dawah that you're carrying to make

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

you feel arrogant or to for for it

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

to guide you or take you in a

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

direction where you start looking down at those

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

who don't have that which you have or

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

those who refuse

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

what you have. That's not that's not appropriate

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

and it doesn't work that way. That's what

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

the jatiya basically explains. And those are the

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

3 warnings in these 3 surahs. And the

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

last last surah on this cluster which is

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

Rudl Haqaf,

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

it tell you that the outcomes, it doesn't

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

like, it it it states a fact. Like,

00:06:28--> 00:06:30

3 Surah give peace, positive things to do.

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

You do this, this, this.

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

The other 3 surahs don't do this, don't

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

do this, don't do this, and then the

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

last one says, at the end, the outcome

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

is in the hands of Allah Subhanahu Wa

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

Ta'ala. You can't you can't control it. Even

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

if you follow all of the recommendations, even

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

if you take the recommendations of suhudraafirashurwazukh

00:06:43--> 00:06:44

wwafussilat,

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

and even if you avoid the warnings of

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

his zukh of dukhan al jafiyah,

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

still the outcome is not in your hands.

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

You can't control who is going to respond,

00:06:53--> 00:06:55

who's not going to respond, who's going to

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

listen, who's not going to listen. That is

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

purely in the hands of Allah subhanahu wa

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

ta'ala. Sometimes you do the best job and

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

no one will listen. And sometimes you do

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

no job at all and others and people

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

will listen. You can't control that piece. That

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

piece is the hands of Allah subhanahu wa

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

ta'ala. You do your best. You you follow

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

these rulings. You follow these laws. You follow

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

these recommendations and you avoid the warnings.

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

But then

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

you have to accept that Allah subhanahu wa

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

ta'ala the outcome is purely in his hands

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

subhanahu wa ta'ala. He he completely took control

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

of the outcome. That's what Surah Al Akhav

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

teaches and it's and it's obvious in the

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

stories that it tells the story of of,

00:07:25--> 00:07:25

Andhra

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

It

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

talks a story it's a story of the

00:07:29--> 00:07:30

people of Hud,

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

when they were in a place called Balakaf.

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

And Hud did everything right, and they didn't

00:07:34--> 00:07:35

listen. And then the prophet

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

had the had the jinn within the story

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

after it, except to me and every talk

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

to them.

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

You can't control that piece. So take the

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

recommendation, the warnings, seriously follow them, and Allah

00:07:54--> 00:07:56

subhanahu wa ta'ala will will decree whatever he

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

wants to decree. I love that fact that

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

the surahs at the end of this clause

00:07:58--> 00:07:59

are just to kinda tell you. By the

00:07:59--> 00:08:02

way, these recommendations and warnings, they're not bulletproof.

00:08:02--> 00:08:03

They don't always work but you have to

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

do them. You have to actually follow that.

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

You have to take your dua

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

to those who do not want to argue

00:08:09--> 00:08:10

against it and you have to have those

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

discussions with them so that the the idea

00:08:12--> 00:08:14

is crystallized and it's clear that the argument

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

is superior. You have to do that while

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

your heart is connected to it. You have

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

to do with dua. You have to do

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

it with dua. You can't be disconnected from

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

God when you're doing it because then it

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

becomes an issue of I'm right and you're

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

wrong, which is not. It's Allah subhanahu wa

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

ta'ala bestowed a blessing upon me. I want

00:08:26--> 00:08:27

to see if I can get it to

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

you, if I if possible. So it was

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

to remind us that character is the best

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

form of dawah and it sure reminds us

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

that you have to have a reference and

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

that you

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

need to have consultation within your community for

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

it to work. So those are the recommendations.

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

Those are the 3 things you have to

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

make sure you do. You have to make

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

sure that you take it to those who

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

don't want it, You'll do it with connection

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

with Allah. You do it with your character,

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

and you have a proper setup within your

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

community so that the consultation occurs and you

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

actually have a proper reference point. And you

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

have to avoid a materialistic approach to things.

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

You have to avoid delusional thinking and lacking

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

the the ability to read science. You have

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

to avoid arrogance with the knowledge that you're

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

given.

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

And they and they all have, like, aspects

00:09:08--> 00:09:10

of the story of Musa alaihis salaam because

00:09:10--> 00:09:12

he ran through all of it, alaihis salaam.

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

Musa alaihis salaam followed all did all the

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

right things, ran into all the wrong things,

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

like, he he he ran it with he

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

avoided all the wrong things with and still

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

he didn't get what he wanted. Like, he

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

still they still didn't all, you know, respond

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

the way they they they should have. And

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

that's that's just how things are. That's just

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

the reality of, of life. So what we're

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

gonna do is we're gonna

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

start with some of the verses. I don't

00:09:30--> 00:09:32

think anyone's has voted at all. Oh, we

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

do? Oh, what you do? Oh, we have

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

a lot. Oh, nice. Okay.

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

I stand corrected. So let's do, number 47

00:09:38--> 00:09:39

of Surah Yeshua.

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

So towards the end of Surah Al Shura,

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

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

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

after he gave the characteristics of the believers

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

and how they work together and how they

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

perform their Dawah and what references they have

00:10:26--> 00:10:28

as they do it. The end of it,

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

Allah subhanahu wa'ala gives us these beautiful verses.

00:10:30--> 00:10:31

End of Surah Surah is really, really nice.

00:10:31--> 00:10:32

It's really, really nice.

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

Respond to your lord.

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

Is respond. Respond to your lord. Respond to

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

the teachings. Respond to the commands, respond to

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

the rulings, respond to the laws, respond

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

to the recommendations that he's offering you.

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

Respond to your Lord. Miqabli before

00:10:56--> 00:10:57

yet and yet. Before the day comes where

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

there is no way back from Allah I

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

mean, you have no way you have no

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

way to to to leave his presence and

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

go and do it right again and then

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

come back.

00:11:05--> 00:11:08

There's no there's no second chance. There's no

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

return. You're standing in prayer time subhanahu wa

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

ta'ala and your mind is like, just send

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

me back for a moment. Oh, oh, you

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

know, it was a test. I get it

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

now. Let me go back and I'll do

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

it better. I'll respond the way I was

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

doing and I'll come back.

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

And I'll come back. There is no there

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

is no going back. There's no way for

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

you to to retreat from the position that

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

you're in to go back and do things

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

correctly anymore. It's a one time deal.

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

You

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

have to respond now. You have to respond

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

to what Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is telling

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

you now before you come to a position

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

where there's no there's no way back. You

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

can't go back and try things again.

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

Allah subhanahu will not give you that that

00:11:41--> 00:11:42

that that chance.

00:11:46--> 00:11:48

You don't have a place to hide that

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

day and you don't have anyone who will

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

just chastise you and move along.

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

You won't have you don't that's not an

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

option where you can just be, you know,

00:11:55--> 00:11:57

slapped on the wrist and then it's gone.

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

No. At that moment, it's it's it's terminal.

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

The judgment that is given that day is

00:12:01--> 00:12:04

that it's it's the bottom line. There's nothing,

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

there's no appeal after after this happens.

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

And this area just, you know, in my

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

opinion the way I see it,

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

it it summarizes really this what this whole

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

story is going to be about. You have

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

to respond now. Respond does not necessarily mean

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

that you're gonna do everything right. Right? He

00:12:20--> 00:12:21

didn't say

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

obey or no. He said it's tajibu, didn't

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

respond.

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

Meaning when he asks you to do something,

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

try your best. Do what you can to

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

respond positively to what it is that he

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

asked you to do because subhanahu ta'ala knows

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

that we don't have the capacity to do

00:12:36--> 00:12:39

the to to do anything perfectly. We just

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

don't.

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

And we're very, you know, very fortunate that

00:12:41--> 00:12:42

Allah

00:12:42--> 00:12:45

acknowledges that all throughout the Quran and in

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

the sunnah and the prophet that we we

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

are not flaw we can't do things in

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

a flawless manner.

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

There's there's always going to be deficits and

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

mistakes and problems.

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

And since that's the case, what he asked

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

for as a in in a in a

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

summarizing verse, in a verse that is concise

00:12:59--> 00:13:00

and very very,

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

short and and simple, he said

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

He responds to you when you make dua.

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

He will respond to you. What you're required

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

to do is You're

00:13:16--> 00:13:17

required

00:13:17--> 00:13:18

to respond to him

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

Respond as in you hear what he it

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

is that he's asking you to do, that

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

you prioritize and you try your absolute best

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

to do that to whatever to whatever extent

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

that that's how to whatever extent you're capable

00:13:31--> 00:13:32

or however that's going to end up looking

00:13:32--> 00:13:34

like at the end. Because every one of

00:13:34--> 00:13:35

us is going to be a little bit

00:13:35--> 00:13:37

different and the to to which degree we're

00:13:37--> 00:13:39

going to be able to follow Allah Subhanahu

00:13:39--> 00:13:42

Wa Ta'ala's, commands and teachings in the Quran.

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

Because why it's important for us as per

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

as people to

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

lessen the amount of time you spend maybe

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

looking at how others are doing things and

00:13:49--> 00:13:51

focus a little bit more on our own

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

responses

00:13:52--> 00:13:54

and whether what I'm doing right now is

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

the best response I have to what Allah

00:13:55--> 00:13:58

subhanahu wa ta'ala is explaining and teaching and

00:13:58--> 00:14:00

commanding in terms of my relationship with him

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

And I have to do and and there's

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

a sense of urgency in this ayah.

00:14:04--> 00:14:05

Do it before

00:14:05--> 00:14:07

the day comes where you have no way

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

back,

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

where you cannot return right now. See this

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

is the this is the advantage of the

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

moment that you and I are living.

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

You can you can repent right now and

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

you can change things immediately. And you have

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

you can go back. Like, you can go

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

back and fix things. You can you can

00:14:21--> 00:14:21

I

00:14:22--> 00:14:25

this opportunity is is priceless, really? It's priceless.

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

It's priceless when you know that very soon

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

in the future, you're not going to have

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

it anymore. You don't have the the capacity

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

or the ability to go back and fix

00:14:33--> 00:14:34

things And the and the one that asks

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

you to respond to him will decline will

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

deprive you your your your ability to go

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

back and try again. You have no way

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

to hide for him.

00:14:42--> 00:14:43

You have no way to hide from.

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

And there's no one who's going to

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

chastise you and kinda move along. It's going

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

to be it's going to be a terminal

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

choice.

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

That's something that for all of us, yeah,

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

I need to, to reflect upon and contemplate.

00:14:56--> 00:14:57

Let's do,

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

a shura 52.

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

Yeah. We got a time today. Let's see

00:15:02--> 00:15:03

if we can get them all.

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

The end of the story is just

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

like that.

00:15:36--> 00:15:38

We reveal to you

00:15:39--> 00:15:40

Yeah.

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

That's how he describes it subhanahu wa ta'ala.

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

Is a spirit.

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

We reveal to you a spirit from our

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

matter.

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

When Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala talks about the

00:15:50--> 00:15:53

Quran in this ayah, He describes the Quran

00:15:53--> 00:15:55

as a ruh, as a spirit, as something

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

that is that it that grants life. Something

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

that is alive that grants life.

00:16:01--> 00:16:03

We gave you We gave you a spirit.

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

We gave you life.

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

You do nothing about books, revelation,

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

and iman. You didn't know about any of

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

this stuff.

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

No?

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

But indeed we made it a source of

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

light.

00:16:22--> 00:16:24

That we use to guide whomever we choose

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

from our servants.

00:16:26--> 00:16:28

And because you have this spirit with you

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

and because you have this light with you.

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

Indeed, you guide towards a straight and righteous

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

path.

00:16:37--> 00:16:38

The path of

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

Allah.

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

Of the one who

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

to him belongs everything in the cosmos and

00:16:46--> 00:16:46

the earth.

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

To Allah

00:16:50--> 00:16:51

all matters

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

end up.

00:16:53--> 00:16:56

All matters end. All matters destinations are with

00:16:56--> 00:16:56

him

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

And that's how he describes the Quran.

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

It's a beautiful description.

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

The Quran is is a spirit. It's life.

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

It's like it's like

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

the peep people were were dead on the

00:17:12--> 00:17:13

inside and Allah

00:17:13--> 00:17:16

granted and and revealed to the prophet alaihis

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

salatu wa sallam a ruh from his matter

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

a ruh something that will grant you life.

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

You didn't know. He's telling him he's telling

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

him, you don't know. You didn't know anything

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

about the kitab or the iman. This was

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

not something you understood,

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

but we granted it to you and we

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

made it for you as a beacon of

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

light that you would use to

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

to guide yourself and that we use to

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

guide others. And indeed,

00:17:35--> 00:17:37

the path that you guide people to is

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

that of righteousness that is straight because you

00:17:39--> 00:17:41

carry that beacon with you, because you carry

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

that spirit.

00:17:43--> 00:17:45

And it's a beautiful description of the of

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

the book of Allah. Alright.

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

So do,

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

Zukhruf,

00:17:50--> 00:17:50

67.

00:17:52--> 00:17:53

You may have to come back later, but

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

67 for now.

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

So when when you talk about

00:18:11--> 00:18:13

companionship, and this is not the first time

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

throughout this month that I I you know,

00:18:15--> 00:18:17

we've talked about an ayah that that points

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

out,

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

some some aspect of companionship,

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

for sure. It won't be the last probably

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

either.

00:18:22--> 00:18:23

But this aya is quite scary.

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

And lakhila is a plural of of of

00:18:30--> 00:18:31

khalil,

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

of of a close friend, a best friend,

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

someone that you you spend the majority of

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

your time with, someone that you consider to

00:18:37--> 00:18:40

be, within your very close and inner circle.

00:18:41--> 00:18:42

These best friends,

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

on the day of judgment,

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

will be enemies of one another.

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

Except those who shared piety with one another,

00:18:53--> 00:18:56

except those who shared mindfulness of Allah together.

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

Aside from that,

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

friends on the day of judgment will be

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

enemies,

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

meaning they will hate one another. They will

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

not want to be in each other's vicinity.

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

They don't wanna see each other. They wanna

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

talk to each other. They wanna be as

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

far away from one another as possible, except

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

those who were sharing mindfulness of Allah or

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

taqwa during their lives.

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

Because what people who are close to you

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

remind you of Yom Al Qiyamah

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

is where you spent what you spent your

00:19:21--> 00:19:23

time doing. That's what they want to remind

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

you of. You're gonna see someone and what

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

they're going to remind you of is the

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

time, is the things you did with them

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

because that's the focus. The focus changes.

00:19:31--> 00:19:33

And the focus of your what you're what

00:19:33--> 00:19:34

you're thinking about is a little bit different

00:19:34--> 00:19:35

than what you think about in dunya. Unless,

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

of course, you

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

you mature

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

spiritually, and then you start thinking in dunya

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

about the same things, you're gonna be thinking

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

about Yomukiyam, and that's the way to make

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

sure you make it.

00:19:45--> 00:19:48

Because Yomul Qiyam, you're not interested about any,

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

any

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

interpersonal interests that you have with them, like,

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

in terms of what benefits you can have

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

from them or the benefit they can have

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

with you. You're not focused on good times

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

you spent with them or good times you're

00:19:59--> 00:20:01

going to you're going to spend with them.

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

You're not you're not looking at that. You're

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

just wondering

00:20:05--> 00:20:07

what were the interactions I had with this

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

person and

00:20:08--> 00:20:10

which side of the scale are those interactions

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

going to be? Like Like the time I

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

spent with this person and which side of

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

the scale?

00:20:14--> 00:20:15

And

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

if the time you spent with this person

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

was not

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

invested in taqwa, in doing kayr, in doing

00:20:22--> 00:20:24

good deeds together, in helping each other being

00:20:24--> 00:20:27

closer to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, then that

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

person is going to in your heart turn

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

to someone that you you despise.

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

So the best of friends,

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

they ain't best of friends yomul qiyab.

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

Unless they made the choice of making sure

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

that they supported one another in terms of

00:20:40--> 00:20:43

their, yeah, their their their journey towards Allah

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

If they supported one another on that journey,

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

that's a different story. The prophet

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

tells us in the Hadith,

00:21:01--> 00:21:03

The people who love one another in dunya,

00:21:04--> 00:21:05

for the sake of Allah

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

for the sake of yanib,

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

of service of Allah

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

They find themselves on the day of judgment

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

on. They're on

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

a

00:21:14--> 00:21:14

pedestal.

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

That are made of of light.

00:21:19--> 00:21:22

Everyone can see them. The prophets are envious

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

of them.

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

Prophets,

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

who did for

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

will see them and and and are be

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

envious of them until they're granted that which

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

is similar to it or better. When they

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

see them, they're envious

00:21:32--> 00:21:35

because of how dignified they are to how,

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

you know, what high esteem Allah subhanahu wa

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

ta'ala holds them at.

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

It's a very valuable thing to love someone

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

in dunya. It's probably the one of the

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

most valuable things you'll ever do. 1 of

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

the most precious things you have is a

00:21:47--> 00:21:49

is a good friend, someone that you truly

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

love, forsake of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. You

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

don't want anything else. You're not looking for,

00:21:51--> 00:21:54

you know, any form of, of of worldly

00:21:54--> 00:21:54

benefit.

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

You're not, you know, you're not

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

banking on anything working out later on in

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

the future where you can cash in and

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

the on that friendship that working out. No.

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

You just want, you just love them because

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

they help you be closer to Allah and

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

you help them to them to be closer

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

to Allah and this this relationship where you

00:22:09--> 00:22:11

guys are making each other better human beings

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

is is beneficial for the both of you

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

and you love them because of that. That's

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

what love for the sake of Allah means

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

that it's a it's a mutual it's a

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

mutual relationship where we're both helping each other

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

be closer to God and to be better

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

people and to make sure yomukriam are in

00:22:23--> 00:22:26

better status. That is a very valuable thing

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

because not only does it is it is

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

it extremely precious in dunya, but it's it's

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

also extremely beautiful

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

It's extremely beautiful. You're on you're on a

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

you're on a mimba

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

made of light that people look at and

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

they envy because Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

you had you had someone who you truly

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

loved for the sake of Allah. And again,

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

I've talked about this before. Love is not

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

just an emotion. In Islam, it never is.

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

Right? There has to be there has to

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

be a haqqiqah for it. There has to

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

be evidence, proof of it. So you love

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

someone for the sake of Allah, but then

00:22:55--> 00:22:58

you don't participate in doing khair with them

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

or they don't participate in doing khair with

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

you. You don't encourage them to do better

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

and they don't encourage you to do better

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

and there's no discouragement of bad things and

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

the the process is not based on that.

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

So the love itself is meaningless, really. It's

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

just a feeling. It doesn't do anything for

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

you, you know, Mirkasyama. The the actual love

00:23:11--> 00:23:12

is going to be something that has that

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

has actual proof to it. There's some evidence

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

to support it.

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

So this ayah, as scary as it is,

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

it also gives a glimmer of real hope.

00:23:21--> 00:23:22

There is light at the end of the

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

tunnel here.

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

And If you're building a relationship with people

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

around you on taqwa, then you're gonna be

00:23:28--> 00:23:31

fine. And that person, not only will you

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

enjoy their company here in Duniya. It's very

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

valuable, by the way. It doesn't happen very

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

often.

00:23:36--> 00:23:39

If you are, as for fortunate enough to

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

have people in your life who draw you

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

closer to Allah and whom you do the

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

same for and you have that ability to

00:23:45--> 00:23:46

help you guys help each other on your

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

way to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and you

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

hold on to them because they don't come

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

very often in life and then they're not

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

easy to there's not an easy, catch.

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

If you're able to hold because that not

00:23:55--> 00:23:56

only will they help you in this life,

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

but you guys will also be looking for

00:23:58--> 00:24:00

one another because you know what you're going

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

to get out of this. This relationship is

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

going to take you even farther than you

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

ever thought. But without

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

that,

00:24:09--> 00:24:11

Aside from that, friends on the day of

00:24:11--> 00:24:13

judgment, best friends are enemies of one another.

00:24:14--> 00:24:16

I do. They're enemies of one another. It's

00:24:16--> 00:24:19

a scary, so so so an intimate relationship

00:24:19--> 00:24:20

can go either way. This is what the

00:24:20--> 00:24:23

is saying. An intimate relationship, a strong relationship

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

can mean 1 of 2 things, yom al

00:24:25--> 00:24:28

qiyama. Either a mimbar of noor that people

00:24:28--> 00:24:29

are envious of or animosity.

00:24:31--> 00:24:33

So you have to choose.

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

Choose your relationships. Who are who are the

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

people that are around you? What do you

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

do with them?

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

How do you guys what what what is

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

the basis of the relationship?

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

What is it based on? And be picky

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

a little bit. It's okay. This is where

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

you'd be picky. This is where you can

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

be a little bit, you know,

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

meticulous.

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

Yeah. Maybe when it comes to your time,

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

when it comes to your and when it

00:24:55--> 00:24:56

comes to where you're gonna be, yeah, yeah,

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

choose your friends wisely,

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

very wisely. That's the most that that this

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

is the most important decision, in my opinion,

00:25:02--> 00:25:04

in your life. The most important one is

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

is who you spend your time with. Forget

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

about all the other stuff.

00:25:08--> 00:25:09

Well, I mean, we spend a lot of

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

time thinking about, like, where we're gonna live

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

in the house and the what type of

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

car and well, I see people spend, like,

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

months trying to figure out what type of

00:25:16--> 00:25:18

car to buy. Actually, I just I mean,

00:25:18--> 00:25:19

buy whatever.

00:25:19--> 00:25:21

It's all the same. Who cares? Like, buy

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

an old car. So it doesn't matter if

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

it gets bumped up and so. Don't buy

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

something you're gonna you're gonna be preoccupied before

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

you buy and then be even more preoccupied

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

after you buy and

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

think about the people that you're gonna That's

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

what you should really think about. Who am

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

I spending my time with? Who who am

00:25:35--> 00:25:37

I surrounding myself with? That's what you that's

00:25:37--> 00:25:39

where you have to be be very careful

00:25:39--> 00:25:41

because that's going to dictate what happens to

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

you on the day of judgment

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

as this ayah explains.

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

Alright. Let's do number 52 actually in Surat

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

Zukhuf.

00:25:48--> 00:25:51

52. Let's go back 1. Yeah. Go back

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

1. We have enough time. Yeah.

00:25:57--> 00:25:58

I don't know why they're not putting these

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

things in. Go

00:26:07--> 00:26:08

So it's a different Zukul that talks about

00:26:08--> 00:26:11

this mentality of materialism, right, and that's why

00:26:11--> 00:26:12

this ayah that I talked about a moment

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

ago is in Surat Zukhru because friendships that

00:26:14--> 00:26:15

are based literally

00:26:16--> 00:26:16

merely

00:26:17--> 00:26:20

on materialistic benefit of dunya, it doesn't it

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

doesn't pan out very nicely, Yom al Qiyam.

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

Within the so the zohif you have a

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

story of a Firaun and

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

Firaoun and Musa and the story of Firaoun

00:26:28--> 00:26:30

and Musa ends with the zukhara is a

00:26:30--> 00:26:31

little bit different than the way it's told

00:26:31--> 00:26:32

in other

00:26:32--> 00:26:34

parts of the Quran because we have a

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

piece of it where Firaoun makes an argument

00:26:36--> 00:26:37

of why people should not listen to Musa

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

and listen to him. We don't have that

00:26:39--> 00:26:41

elsewhere in the Quran. It's only there. So

00:26:41--> 00:26:42

he stands up.

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

So he stood up and said, oh, my

00:27:01--> 00:27:02

people,

00:27:03--> 00:27:05

do I not have the sovereignty of Egypt?

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

And do the rivers of Egypt not run

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

under my feet? Do you not see? Am

00:27:08--> 00:27:10

I not better than the one?

00:27:11--> 00:27:14

This person who has no status? Mahin means

00:27:14--> 00:27:17

someone who cannot protect themselves, someone who's not

00:27:18--> 00:27:20

from Ihana, from humility. From this person

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

who is humble, who is weak, who has

00:27:23--> 00:27:25

no protection, does not have an army, does

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

not.

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

Who is better? Am I not better than

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

this person who is

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

who can barely who can barely even articulate

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

or speak properly? Musa alaihis salam had a,

00:27:34--> 00:27:35

speech impediment.

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

Musa alayhis salam had a speech impediment.

00:27:40--> 00:27:41

He he he had a lisp of some

00:27:41--> 00:27:43

sort. He couldn't he couldn't speak properly. He

00:27:43--> 00:27:45

wasn't good at public speaking at all, and

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

when he was told by Allah Subhanahu to

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

do it, he said,

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

haroun.

00:27:49--> 00:27:51

Can you can you add him to the

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

package?

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

Was much more articulate. Send him with me

00:28:03--> 00:28:04

as a prophet so he can help me

00:28:04--> 00:28:06

along because I'm not good at this piece.

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

He knew what he was good at. Well,

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

he wasn't good

00:28:08--> 00:28:09

at

00:28:09--> 00:28:12

one of the most highly revered and respected

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

prophets of all time

00:28:13--> 00:28:16

He's beloved to us. He must be. He

00:28:16--> 00:28:17

should. You should love Musa He's all in

00:28:17--> 00:28:18

the Quran. So if you love the Quran,

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

you love Musa a 100%. But he had

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

that speech impediment. He didn't speak properly. There's

00:28:23--> 00:28:25

something always there's a lisp when he when

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

he spoke. So

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

Farall mocks him for it.

00:28:29--> 00:28:30

Am I not better than this person who

00:28:30--> 00:28:33

lacks, protection, does not have a strong

00:28:33--> 00:28:35

army to protect him, and he had a

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

speech impediment. So so what what is what

00:28:37--> 00:28:39

is what is a speech impediment have to

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

do with the message that Musa alaihis salam?

00:28:41--> 00:28:43

But that's the that's the logic of materialism.

00:28:43--> 00:28:45

Yeah. He's judging he's judging based on, well,

00:28:45--> 00:28:47

I'm stronger. I have more wealth, I don't

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

have a lisp.

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

Well, let us let him show us let

00:28:54--> 00:28:56

him show us the wealth that he has,

00:28:56--> 00:28:58

the aswira, the bracelets of gold. Let him

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

show us the Malayika that come and support

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

him.

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

So he treated his people stupidly.

00:29:06--> 00:29:07

That's what staghfah means.

00:29:08--> 00:29:09

He treated them idiotically

00:29:10--> 00:29:11

in a stupid manner,

00:29:12--> 00:29:13

and they followed him.

00:29:15--> 00:29:17

Indeed, there are people who were deviant

00:29:17--> 00:29:20

because his argument is is is

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

is hollow. It's empty. It's actually very offensive.

00:29:23--> 00:29:25

And for you to judge someone's idea based

00:29:25--> 00:29:28

on well, you know, to mock speech impediments.

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

Right?

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

Be be careful. Be careful in your life

00:29:32--> 00:29:33

what you make fun of.

00:29:33--> 00:29:36

Be careful. I mean, mockery and satire is

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

a very dangerous thing to use. It's very

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

dangerous. Even amongst friends, be careful. Be careful

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

what you're, you know, what you joke about,

00:29:43--> 00:29:45

especially when something is is, you can't control

00:29:45--> 00:29:47

it. You know, someone with something that has

00:29:47--> 00:29:48

nothing to do with him. Musa is not

00:29:48--> 00:29:51

nothing to Musa is not accountable for being

00:29:51--> 00:29:53

Mahin, for not having a lot of people

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

to support him and having an army and

00:29:54--> 00:29:56

having wealth. He's not accountable for being

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

He has issues with

00:29:59--> 00:30:01

the with with with articulation. It's not his

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

fault. Just how he is.

00:30:03--> 00:30:06

Why? To mock people for that or to

00:30:06--> 00:30:09

make fun of them. It's very low.

00:30:09--> 00:30:10

It's under the belt, Wallahi.

00:30:11--> 00:30:12

Be careful.

00:30:12--> 00:30:13

People will do it to you in your

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

life. Don't stoop to that,

00:30:16--> 00:30:17

don't go into Don't fall into

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

Don't get down into the mud with them.

00:30:20--> 00:30:23

People who are empty, they'll make they'll they'll

00:30:23--> 00:30:26

stop talking about the idea and they'll mock

00:30:26--> 00:30:29

the person. Right? It's a known political, political,

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

taxing.

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

When they when they have a strong argument,

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

you stop going out because the arc you're

00:30:33--> 00:30:35

gonna lose the argument. So you're talking about

00:30:35--> 00:30:36

you you you pick something out of their

00:30:36--> 00:30:39

past. You look for maybe some picture that

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

they Where they weren't at their best behavior

00:30:40--> 00:30:42

or something. And then you focus on that.

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

You try to try to steer the attention,

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

the public opinion towards like a character flaw

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

or something that

00:30:48--> 00:30:49

And even when it's character, it's at least

00:30:49--> 00:30:51

it's at least something that you can choose,

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

but when you when you steer it towards

00:30:53--> 00:30:55

something they can't influence at all, it's just

00:30:55--> 00:30:58

very it's very, it's it's it's wobbly. Slow.

00:30:58--> 00:30:59

It's very low,

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

and and and and Faram was so scared

00:31:02--> 00:31:04

of Musa alayhis salam. Think about this. This

00:31:04--> 00:31:05

is this is this is the value of

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

a strong idea

00:31:07--> 00:31:10

that someone who literally runs he rules Egypt.

00:31:10--> 00:31:12

He's scared of Musa, so he has to

00:31:12--> 00:31:13

make this argument. Am I not better? Do

00:31:13--> 00:31:15

I not have more? Am I not stronger?

00:31:15--> 00:31:16

He can't even speak properly.

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

He's trying to get people to he

00:31:19--> 00:31:21

spoke to them stupidly and they listened to

00:31:21--> 00:31:22

him and they followed him because that's what

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

they wanted to do. That's what Arif Faran

00:31:24--> 00:31:25

wanted to do.

00:31:27--> 00:31:29

When they did that, we we we punish

00:31:29--> 00:31:30

them for it. Because, you know, what what

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

is this argument?

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

How is this acceptable? Be careful of what

00:31:34--> 00:31:36

you make fun of and and what you

00:31:36--> 00:31:37

how you look at people for things.

00:31:38--> 00:31:40

So let's do, 38 and 39 from Duqan.

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

38, 39.

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

So the Dukhan

00:32:02--> 00:32:04

is warning us from being

00:32:04--> 00:32:05

delusional in the way that we think and

00:32:05--> 00:32:07

missing the signs. In the midst of the

00:32:07--> 00:32:09

surah, he had this beautiful ayat.

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

We did not create the cosmos of the

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

earth with the intention of play.

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

He says this subhanahu wa ta'ala,

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

We didn't do this. We're playing around. We're

00:32:26--> 00:32:28

just wasting time. We're just doing something for

00:32:28--> 00:32:29

the sake of doing something. No.

00:32:31--> 00:32:33

We only created them This is the royal

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

We of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. I only

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

created them with

00:32:37--> 00:32:40

the purpose of pursuing and achieving righteousness, that's

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

why I created them. It was not a

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

game. It was not a joke. We were

00:32:43--> 00:32:46

not playing around. This was hap. So do

00:32:46--> 00:32:47

not miss that.

00:32:47--> 00:32:50

Do not look around and assume that this

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

the story of existence is humorous somehow,

00:32:54--> 00:32:56

that it that's

00:32:56--> 00:32:58

something to be taken lightly because it's not,

00:32:58--> 00:32:59

it's very serious.

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

Created

00:33:03--> 00:33:04

Most people don't know this but that's what

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

it is, it's through Haqq, and only through

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

Haqq

00:33:07--> 00:33:09

things will prevail. And when you go against

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

Haqq, things will crumble and and fail. On

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

the day of judgment, we'll be held to

00:33:13--> 00:33:16

the to the criteria that is that's what

00:33:16--> 00:33:17

we're gonna be held to. We're gonna be

00:33:17--> 00:33:20

asked about that. And if you live your

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

life in a way where you thought it

00:33:21--> 00:33:23

was fun and games, then is going to

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

be very painful.

00:33:25--> 00:33:26

It's gonna be very very painful because those

00:33:26--> 00:33:27

who take everything

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

Those who look at everything in a light

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

manner. It's okay to take yourself lightly. So

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

Prophet alaihis salam will always smiley.

00:33:35--> 00:33:37

He joked a lot alaihis salam, actually. If

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

you study his life, he was he was

00:33:38--> 00:33:41

constant. But he didn't take serious things lightly,

00:33:41--> 00:33:43

and he knew where the line was drawn,

00:33:43--> 00:33:44

and he knew where where he had to

00:33:44--> 00:33:46

focus and he had to be

00:33:46--> 00:33:48

he had to be someone who was capable

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

of making

00:33:49--> 00:33:51

actual decisions and and

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

We did not create them playing. Just in

00:33:56--> 00:33:58

case yeah. Any as I said, you guys

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

seem to be playing a lot. By the

00:33:59--> 00:34:01

way, we didn't create these, create all this,

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

with the intention of play. We created them

00:34:04--> 00:34:06

with the intention of haqq. So so so

00:34:06--> 00:34:08

hold yourself to that standard. Hold yourself to

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

the standard of haqqah and see where you

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

are from it because

00:34:11--> 00:34:12

that's what you're gonna be held to. So

00:34:12--> 00:34:13

you come with a book that is filled

00:34:13--> 00:34:14

with just play.

00:34:15--> 00:34:16

When the book is just play, which is

00:34:16--> 00:34:17

ongoing play,

00:34:18--> 00:34:20

nothing was taken seriously. There were no decisions

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

that had any substance to them. There was

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

no commitment, no grit, there was no perseverance.

00:34:24--> 00:34:26

It was just ongoing play every time you

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

had the the opportunity.

00:34:28--> 00:34:30

Yeah. I don't know how how well that

00:34:30--> 00:34:31

will will pan out.

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

I don't know how well the outcome would

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

be because he did not create them playing,

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

subhanahu wa ta'ala, and that's what it serves

00:34:36--> 00:34:37

as a warning for all of us to

00:34:37--> 00:34:39

to contemplate. Let's do ayah number 23 of

00:34:39--> 00:34:40

Jafiah.

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

Surat Al Jafiyyah, the warning in it is

00:35:12--> 00:35:13

beware of arrogance

00:35:15--> 00:35:16

when you have knowledge. Beware

00:35:17--> 00:35:19

when you're knowledgeable, when you know you understand

00:35:19--> 00:35:21

your deen, beware of allowing arrogance to to

00:35:21--> 00:35:23

misguide you. So this ayah towards the end

00:35:23--> 00:35:24

of it, it says

00:35:29--> 00:35:31

Have you seen or have you observed? The

00:35:31--> 00:35:34

one who takes their Lord, their deity, their

00:35:34--> 00:35:36

their worshiped one. And Ilah is the worshiped

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

one. That's kind of the bottom line of

00:35:39--> 00:35:41

the translation. And Ilah is the worshiped one,

00:35:41--> 00:35:42

the one worthy of worship. That's that's what

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

Ilah means. So the one who's who chose

00:35:44--> 00:35:45

the one that's worthy of worship, the person

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

who chose the one worthy of worship in

00:35:47--> 00:35:48

their lives to be Hawa. Person who chose

00:35:48--> 00:35:50

the one worthy of worship in their lives

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

to be Hawa,

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

to be his desires or his whims. And

00:35:54--> 00:35:57

whatever whatever he wants. Whatever his nafs wants,

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

that's his worshiped one, which means, obviously, there's

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

no there's really no religion, and I looked

00:36:02--> 00:36:03

this up because I wanted to make sure.

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

There's no religion in the world that where

00:36:05--> 00:36:07

you worship your desires. Like, it's a there's

00:36:07--> 00:36:08

no there's no creed that has that in

00:36:08--> 00:36:09

it. So

00:36:10--> 00:36:11

and the and the people of Quraysh did

00:36:11--> 00:36:13

not believe that either. So this is a

00:36:13--> 00:36:15

figure of speech. And the figure of speech

00:36:15--> 00:36:17

is very revealing of what how Allah sees

00:36:17--> 00:36:18

the concept

00:36:19--> 00:36:20

of when he talks about an ilah, how

00:36:20--> 00:36:23

he understands it He understands it as in

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

the one whom you worship in in terms

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

who you fully obey.

00:36:27--> 00:36:28

The the thing that you obey all the

00:36:28--> 00:36:30

time, the thing that you listen to immediately

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

that you don't question, that's your ilah. That's

00:36:32--> 00:36:34

the worship one for you. Yeah. Now you

00:36:34--> 00:36:35

may state it, you may not state it,

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

it doesn't make that much of a difference

00:36:37--> 00:36:39

because at the end is is actions that

00:36:39--> 00:36:42

will prove whether something was correct or true

00:36:42--> 00:36:43

or versus not.

00:36:43--> 00:36:45

So the prophet, Alaihi Wasallam, is being told,

00:36:45--> 00:36:47

you see the one who chose his worshiped

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

one, you know, the person who chose his

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

worshiped one to be his own whims and

00:36:51--> 00:36:51

desires

00:36:52--> 00:36:53

and that type of person is the one

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

who

00:36:55--> 00:36:57

anytime there is a dilemma in their mind

00:36:57--> 00:37:00

or in their lives and the scales of

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

reason kind of are set up in your

00:37:01--> 00:37:03

brain it's like a part it comes with

00:37:03--> 00:37:05

a toolkit of life you have these skills

00:37:05--> 00:37:06

and you put things that have weight in

00:37:06--> 00:37:08

them and you try to win. Every time

00:37:08--> 00:37:10

the nefs want something, you always go with

00:37:10--> 00:37:11

it. If the nefs want something, you go

00:37:11--> 00:37:13

with it. It's always whatever the nefs wants.

00:37:13--> 00:37:14

It's always whatever the desires of the nefs

00:37:14--> 00:37:15

are

00:37:15--> 00:37:18

and that's that's your, that's your that's your

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

worship one.

00:37:19--> 00:37:21

You can say that

00:37:21--> 00:37:22

but then

00:37:22--> 00:37:25

your actions are gonna disprove it and it's

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

gonna prove

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

that

00:37:28--> 00:37:30

to make this a bit more scarier because

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

there's an a similar to this

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

with

00:37:35--> 00:37:38

no with no extras, just just that concept.

00:37:38--> 00:37:40

But in Surat Al Jafi insul Al Jafi

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

adds something.

00:37:43--> 00:37:45

And this person was misguided to do that

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

with knowledge.

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

They had knowledge.

00:37:48--> 00:37:49

Like, they actually they knew stuff, like, they

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

had studied the Quran, they studied the sun,

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

they knew. But they were misguided even though

00:37:53--> 00:37:56

they had knowledge. Because what's the value of

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

knowledge if it does not teach you how

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

to control your whims, and control your desires,

00:38:01--> 00:38:02

and control your urges?

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

What's the point of knowledge if it does

00:38:04--> 00:38:06

not allow you to distinguish between that which

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

is coming from Allah, and that which is

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

from shaytan, and that which is originating from

00:38:10--> 00:38:13

the selfishness of the nafs that is inside

00:38:13--> 00:38:14

of you. If you don't If the knowledge

00:38:14--> 00:38:16

that you have does not allow you to

00:38:16--> 00:38:18

distinguish between these things, to make decisions based

00:38:18--> 00:38:19

on it, then what was the point of

00:38:19--> 00:38:21

that knowledge? This knowledge will only make you

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

more arrogant, and more vain, and more envious,

00:38:24--> 00:38:26

and more ostentatious, and it'll take you farther

00:38:26--> 00:38:27

away from Allah. As

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

the the code is,

00:38:30--> 00:38:30

right?

00:38:33--> 00:38:35

The person who increases in knowledge and does

00:38:35--> 00:38:36

not increase in guidance

00:38:37--> 00:38:40

only increases himself in distance away from Allah

00:38:40--> 00:38:41

subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:38:44--> 00:38:47

The person who took his worshiped one as

00:38:47--> 00:38:49

his own whims and his nafs, his whims

00:38:49--> 00:38:51

and the the desires of his nafs and

00:38:51--> 00:38:53

Allah misguided him even though he was a

00:38:53--> 00:38:54

person of knowledge.

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

And that person

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

sealed their ears and sealed their heart and

00:39:05--> 00:39:06

there is a seal in front of their

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

eyes. There's a curtain down in front of

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

them.

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

Who is going to guide him if not

00:39:13--> 00:39:15

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala? Do you not do

00:39:15--> 00:39:16

you not contemplate these things?

00:39:17--> 00:39:19

It's very easy. It's very easy to go

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

down a route where

00:39:21--> 00:39:22

you lose you lose

00:39:24--> 00:39:27

control and you lose lose contact with yourself,

00:39:27--> 00:39:29

with who you are and what you're doing

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

and why you're doing things. And you lead

00:39:30--> 00:39:33

yourself to believe that you're doing really well

00:39:33--> 00:39:35

when the the the actuality of it is

00:39:35--> 00:39:37

that you're not. The reality is that you're

00:39:37--> 00:39:38

not really doing that well.

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

It doesn't mean that if you're not doing

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

well that you should feel bad about yourself,

00:39:42--> 00:39:45

but acknowledging that is important, like knowing that

00:39:45--> 00:39:47

I'm not actually close. I'm far from where

00:39:47--> 00:39:49

I need to be. I'm far. Because if

00:39:49--> 00:39:50

you don't, then

00:39:51--> 00:39:53

then there's nothing to There's no fight. There's

00:39:53--> 00:39:55

no fight. If you're not acknowledging that the

00:39:55--> 00:39:57

nafs has desires and it wants you to

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

do things and you have to be fight,

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

then you're not There's no fight. You're not

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

putting up a fight. Even if you're losing

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

the fight, but at least you put it

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

up. If you stop putting up a fight

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

and you actually think that what you want

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

is the right thing and you and you

00:40:06--> 00:40:08

and you shape it in that manner. You

00:40:08--> 00:40:10

shape it so that it seems that what

00:40:10--> 00:40:11

you want is right and you defend what

00:40:11--> 00:40:13

you want at all times because you believe

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

that you're right. And then your desires becomes

00:40:16--> 00:40:18

your worshipped one and you'll be misguided even

00:40:18--> 00:40:20

though you have knowledge. You'll actually make

00:40:21--> 00:40:23

like knowledgeable arguments to defend what it is

00:40:23--> 00:40:25

that you're doing. But there's a seal on

00:40:25--> 00:40:27

your ears, on your heart, in your eye.

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

You don't you can't see it. You have

00:40:28--> 00:40:30

no insight anymore. You don't you don't know.

00:40:31--> 00:40:33

It's very dangerous, oh Allah.

00:40:33--> 00:40:35

May Allah preserve us, oh, Allah, and protect

00:40:35--> 00:40:38

us. To have knowledge and use that knowledge

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

to just to self serve.

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

To have knowledge and use the knowledge you

00:40:42--> 00:40:44

have to self serve just to get what

00:40:44--> 00:40:45

you want,

00:40:45--> 00:40:49

some hidden underlying struggle of power that you're

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

engaging in, trying to get yourself into a

00:40:50--> 00:40:53

position, and you're using knowledge and you're using

00:40:53--> 00:40:54

you're acting like you're alpha.

00:40:56--> 00:40:59

This ayah is there to to to scare

00:40:59--> 00:41:01

you. You could be knowledgeable and still use

00:41:01--> 00:41:03

that knowledge in a way where it just

00:41:03--> 00:41:04

serves your self desires and end up far

00:41:04--> 00:41:06

from where you need to be.

00:41:06--> 00:41:08

Let's do one more. Let's do aya number,

00:41:09--> 00:41:10

19.

00:41:24--> 00:41:25

Like I said, Surat Al Akkaf tells you

00:41:25--> 00:41:27

that, the outcomes are in the hands of

00:41:27--> 00:41:29

Allah Subhanahu Wa'ala. You can do everything right

00:41:29--> 00:41:30

and things don't work out. You can do

00:41:30--> 00:41:32

it wrong at work you don't you don't

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

know. You can't control it. It's just the

00:41:34--> 00:41:35

outcomes are in his hands, Subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:41:35--> 00:41:37

And these verses, these very beautiful ayatul wasayil

00:41:37--> 00:41:38

insanabhiwala

00:41:47--> 00:41:49

These beautiful Ayat that talk about the importance

00:41:49--> 00:41:51

of being, you know, pious to your parents

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

and when you get older, that you take

00:41:52--> 00:41:54

care of them, take care of your offspring.

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

And then he talks about

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

2 groups of people, those who are that

00:41:58--> 00:42:00

that first be the person who is takes

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

care of his parents, loves them, takes care

00:42:02--> 00:42:03

of his his children, loves

00:42:06--> 00:42:08

Allah Those are the ones who we accept

00:42:08--> 00:42:09

their good deeds and we forgive their bad

00:42:09--> 00:42:10

deeds. And then you have

00:42:13--> 00:42:15

a person who tells his parents does not

00:42:15--> 00:42:17

believe in Allah subhanahu altogether, someone who is

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

just on the wrong path.

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

Those are the people who are going to

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

be punished as Allah subhanahu wa'anhu promised that

00:42:27--> 00:42:29

they will be punished in jahannam with jinn

00:42:29--> 00:42:29

and ins.

00:42:30--> 00:42:32

The end of these verses. He says,

00:42:35--> 00:42:36

And each group

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

will

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

be given

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

certain degree of reward for that which they

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

did in their lives.

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

Walikullim.

00:42:44--> 00:42:46

Walikullim is for both, meaning the person who

00:42:46--> 00:42:47

was pious and

00:42:48--> 00:42:49

good son or a good,

00:42:50--> 00:42:51

a good child and a good And a

00:42:51--> 00:42:53

good parent and a good Muslim

00:42:53--> 00:42:55

versus the, not a good child, not a

00:42:55--> 00:42:56

good parent, not a good Muslim.

00:42:57--> 00:42:58

Yeah. For both of

00:43:00--> 00:43:02

them, Certain degrees, they're in from what they

00:43:02--> 00:43:03

did in their lives.

00:43:06--> 00:43:08

And Allah will deliver to them

00:43:09--> 00:43:10

the the full due diligence of what they

00:43:10--> 00:43:12

deserved and they will not be oppressed. This

00:43:12--> 00:43:13

ayah is saying that you'd not only do

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

you not control the outcome of who is

00:43:15--> 00:43:17

is going to believe and who's not, you

00:43:17--> 00:43:19

don't even control the outcome of who's going

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

to be rewarded or not. You don't know

00:43:20--> 00:43:22

what they're going to get. Everyone's going to

00:43:22--> 00:43:24

be treated fairly, oh, Mirkiyama.

00:43:24--> 00:43:26

No one's going to be oppressed. You think

00:43:26--> 00:43:27

that this person is going to Jahanam. You

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

don't

00:43:28--> 00:43:29

know where they're going. They don't know what

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

they're going to get.

00:43:31--> 00:43:33

Everyone's going to get a certain degree of

00:43:33--> 00:43:34

reward for what they did in their lives.

00:43:34--> 00:43:36

When and how is not my business. I

00:43:36--> 00:43:37

don't know. So I don't get to say

00:43:37--> 00:43:40

where they're going. I don't control the outcomes

00:43:40--> 00:43:41

of who accepts Islam and who doesn't. I

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

don't control the outcomes of where the people

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

who accepted and didn't accept go Yom Kiyama

00:43:45--> 00:43:47

either. And that just takes away a lot

00:43:47--> 00:43:50

of burden or just focus on here's the

00:43:50--> 00:43:52

recommendations, here are the warnings, do it well

00:43:52--> 00:43:54

and then leave everything else. Leave leave Allah

00:43:54--> 00:43:55

subhanahu take care of the rest of it.

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

It's not it's not your thing. You don't

00:43:57--> 00:43:58

point to be extremely helpful.

00:43:57--> 00:43:58

point to be extremely helpful.
