They delve into the meaning of "how" in the Quran and the significance of love, hate, and beauty in their teachings. The importance of weighing in on deeds and ensuring that the good deeds are put in scale, and the use of logic and logic cards to test deeds and avoid surprises. The speakers stress the importance of avoiding feeling like the lack of logic is a " crucial" belief and the need for understanding and learning from people.

You want to be able to get Alameen wa sallahu wa sallim wa barik ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Adjumani No, but

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

we'll start from 840 for the next maybe 234 days and let me push it to 45 as we go along

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

Subhanallah This is the second half of Ramadan. The second half does not move the way the first half does the first half, takes a little bit of time, the second half just dominoes its way through. It finishes really quickly. A few more days will be in the Tuesday night will be the last 10 nights of Ramadan, it was the last time they begin, they end almost end as quickly as the beginning. So make sure you renew your intention and prepare yourself and push yourself a little bit

00:00:44--> 00:01:17

harder, I guess for the next couple of weeks. Okay, so I'm gonna go through so PA, I talked about that a little bit yesterday, and then we're gonna do spa and then after that Olympia and then we'll do a part of unhedged, not all of your hands, you'll do half of it today and tomorrow, this cluster from slot to animal talks about carrying the message is very specific, carrying the beacon the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam was given the message of Tawheed and all that comes with that all the values and all the principles and the teachings that come with it, everything that you're going to need in order to carry that message and all the challenges that you will find on the way and sort of

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

reminds us that in the midst of the struggle, as you carry this mission in the midst of the struggle, the message was not designed to make you miserable. It was designed to give you fulfillment and to grant you tranquility and peace. That's what it's designed to do. You so my name is Elena Aliko. Khurana Tasha, we didn't give it to you so that you're unhappy? No, no, this is the opposite of that, actually, actually, the verse is going to sort of behind one of the verses we're going to talk about and Shawn's gonna point that out specifically, I don't know which one though, is going to be but we'll figure it out.

00:01:45--> 00:02:21

Sort of Columbia tells us that in carrying the message, your role models are the MBL be like them, and that tells us all these snap gives us the snapshots of their stories and what they did learn from the Gambia, they carry this message with all the mites with all their might. So learn from them behave like them, think like them, speak like them, and be connected to Allah subhanaw taala like them. It's a very simple message and sort of Columbia. And then sort of will hedge reminds us that this carrying the message is a journey I love I love this so much. It's a journey. He's the only song on the Quran where we're not the only sort of what is the only Surah where where we have a

00:02:21--> 00:02:32

where half of the surah was revealed in Mecca, and half of it was revealed in muddy like like it's murky, muddy like the same sort of also it was either this or that with maybe an exception of one verse or two verses

00:02:33--> 00:03:08

and actually into two hedges a verse that was revealed on the way within it Lavina Yakata Luna be unknown volume, so it was revealed through a journey, right. And that's his theme that and in his essence that word is a pilgrimage, it's a journey of carrying this message is a journey, you need to be flexible, you need to be perseverant and you need to continue to strive that's what this teaches that in order for this journey to be fruitful you need to make sure that you are flexible in your in your thought process and in the choices that you make that your persevere for the sake of Allah and continue to strive and that's the theme of suicide Lodge. So what we'll do is we'll start I don't

00:03:08--> 00:03:13

see any of my recitals here today not one okay you're here let's just

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

let's do

00:03:18--> 00:03:23

let's do what 24 hours supply and we go back to one a little bit later but it's 134 we may go back to one

00:03:29--> 00:03:36

woman or I'll go on decrease in Whom are you shirt boom.

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

Why not actual rule young woman

00:03:43--> 00:03:45

in this part of to apply at the end.

00:03:48--> 00:04:26

He says a pint of water I owe an Adela and decree and those who turn away from my remembrance. Those who refuse to listen to my to the Quran or refuse to listen to the teachings of Allah subhanaw taala decoded the reminders of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is how Allah subhanaw taala defines his book and defines his teachings that he calls them vicar dhikr as in remembrance or reminders because the way Allah subhanaw taala puts this for us is that we know innately deep inside by filter, we know what it is that we're here to do. We know that Allah Subhana Allah created us and that we have purpose. The deen is just here to remind us of something that we actually subconsciously know.

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

So he says at the end of Surah till PA to kind of make sure the theme is clear woman Allah and Victorian those are turned away from my reminders in the remembrance. But in Allahumma a shutdown banca indeed is going to have a lifestyle is going to have a life that is bunk. Bunk means difficulty. Bunk means just miserable, unhappy, Bunk is just you always feel upset. That's what Blanc is a state blank is a state of emotion. It's not it's not really you don't you can't call something out even though when I look at someone I can say Barbara that's it. He's in difficult will

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

dunk is something happening on the inside. So I don't know if he's unlucky he could be in the rock but happy could be in difficulty but he's a happy fellow. Right? But bunk is a way you feel. So if I know the Houma Aisha Tang Blanca Aisha is the lifestyle or a way of life. They're going to be upset in their lives. Their lives are going to be hollow, they're going to be empty, they're not going to be happy. Those who turn away from my reminders will have my Asia tongue banca will not be happy and will not find fulfilment. And this is beautiful because of the sewer begins at the beginning of it, man Zelina article Khurana Natasha we didn't reveal the Quran free to you so that you'll be

00:05:33--> 00:05:45

miserable. And at the end of the the the surah he says those who turn away from my teachings are the ones who are going to have my Aisha Tang Blanca we're going to have a lifestyle that is miserable and they're going to be upset. Oh, Robbie

00:05:47--> 00:06:25

vendetta who makes it we're not sure who your multi year multi Ironman are. They have judgment they are they're gathered in front of Allah subhanaw taala in a state of blindness. Color of the Lima hotshot attorney, aka the quintuple see right Oh my Lord, why is it that you have brought me here? And I am blind? I can't see anything. And I used to be able to see back in dunya I wasn't blind, like in their minds. Like if you were blind in dunya, then you may be blind, your Malkia but if you could see in dunya then why can't I see you? Because you said Oh ALLAH cada Lika Atka Yeah, tuna. panacea. It's just like when we sent you and gave you our verses and our reminders, and you turned

00:06:25--> 00:06:32

away and you forgot about them. What can barely can leiomyoma tunes. And just like that, just like you forgot what we taught you.

00:06:33--> 00:07:09

The choice of word forgotten here is just very, very interesting. Because it's almost like What do you mean forgot he didn't forget? He didn't forget he just he turned away from Allah is remember, he didn't forget. No, he did forget you forgotten because deep down inside, you know, deep down inside, there's a part of you that knows the law in the law, and knows that you're here for a purpose and knows that ALLAH SubhanA crazy. There's a piece of you there's something inside, there's a voice inside of you that if you don't, if you're silent enough, you can hear it. There's a part of you that is very much aware of why it's here and where it's going. But you forgot about that you forgot

00:07:09--> 00:07:37

you forgot the teachings that you innately knew when I said to her you forgot I sent you reminders but you'd continue to continue to forget what it is that you knew was was the truth. Okay, that he can do my tunes and today you will be forgotten as well. Obviously, Allah Subhan doesn't forget people but you'll be forgotten as in you won't be given everything. You don't have eyes. We forgot to give you guys general ledger, Allah Allah He does not forget to but that's the word that he's being used. He's gonna use Subhanallah what? Let me Allah subhanaw taala grant us full eyesight on the Day of Judgment in his satisfaction.

00:07:38--> 00:08:11

But it's a very scary verse and it's very meaningful, meaningful and it's the truth. And I can say this quite confidently to you. If you're a dean meaning if your connection with Allah subhanaw taala and commitment to his deen is not granting you. It's not granting you fulfillment. It's not granting you a peace, inner peace. If it's not granting you that then you're not doing it right. And there's something missing. Because this is what Allah subhanaw taala offers you. He said this sort of the night and I talked about it a few nights ago. And now he's saying he says it again, in a full surah and sort of BA just explaining this is not here to make it miserable. It's those who turn away from

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

my teachings are going to be upset, miserable at the end. Okay.

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

Let's do it. Number one of swords Glanbia

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

first day

00:08:22--> 00:09:02

Katara, Berlin, symphonies, boom, feel off. More Are you boo totally tells us and if you carry the message, may your role models and your idols be the MBS and not. So idols are a nice thing, just as long as that they are not rocks and trees and things that you worship idols, as in people that you look up to people that you, you try to emulate their behavior and learn from them and follow in their footsteps, and that's fine. The concept itself is not evil. It's when it's used. It's misused that it turns into something negative. So Allah subhanaw says, You want role models? Here's the Ambia learn about them, which is what this tool is called. And it begins with a verse where he says,

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

a tele belly nurse, he said, boom, the judgment of people is coming close. Is Hastings coming really quickly.

00:09:10--> 00:09:52

There's no There's no time. You're losing ground, you're losing time Katara by the nursing isa boom, their judgment is rushing towards them. Time is getting shorter very quickly. Well whom fee off let him What are you doing and they're in a state of oblivion and indifference. They're in a state of indifference, turning away from what is correct. The concept of law is all throughout the Quran. If you write the word, if you take the route of lien for lamb, and you put it in like a search engine of the Quran, they'll find it really nicely spread out throughout the Quran almost everywhere, just almost synchronously, all throughout the most have talked about a lot. And the meaning of love law

00:09:52--> 00:09:56

is being in a state of Oblivion or being indifferent, just not caring.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

You're not heavily committed.

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

has to be against the dean. But you're not committed to the dean either. You're neither here nor there with me Davina bein, Nika La ilaha illa. Somewhere in the middle, you're neither committed to Allah subhanaw taala nor are you a sworn enemy. And the word Khosla. The reason is talked about in the Quran almost universally throughout the Mossad is because it's such a dangerous disease.

00:10:25--> 00:10:32

Nice quote that the opposite of love is not hate, its indifference. And the opposite of beauty is not ugliness, it's indifference.

00:10:34--> 00:10:38

The opposite of empathy is not bigotry, it's indifference.

00:10:39--> 00:11:03

And it's true. Because what is hate? Hate is just love of the opposite thing. It's not really the opposite isn't it's rarely not. I love you. And if I hate someone else, I just love to see them in pain. So I love something, though there's love to say hate is the opposite of love. No, it's just it's the opposite has the opposite target of love. But it's the same thing is still love. The opposite of love of passion isn't different than just not caring.

00:11:05--> 00:11:36

The opposite of beauty is not ugliness, because because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So if something doesn't, if you're able to identify something not looking to that means you're able to identify beauty and differences where you just it's not something you care about altogether, so it's lost on you. It's lost on us 1990 You shouldn't even been shown this thing because you have no ability to judge it to begin with you have no way to actually taste the beauty or taste the opposite of you just don't have that that's a problem within difference. Tell Rob is a is very scary. Delta Oberlin nurse ASA Boone, people's judgment is coming close. It's he's getting towards them. It's

00:11:36--> 00:11:54

near. And they're in a state of Buffalo. They're in a state of indifference. What are you doing turning their fate, they're looking in the wrong direction. And there are all these when you're looking, I don't blank, I looked somewhere else. I'm not focused on you. So I'm not seeing you. Law here. Tell polu boom, their hearts are fully distracted.

00:11:55--> 00:12:30

They're here Tonkotsu boom, their hearts are in a state of distraction. Other things are taking their attention. They're focused and they care about other stuff. The very, this is one of the in my opinion, one of the most powerful beginnings of a surah in the Quran. That there's no, there's really no there's no introduction as to what MBR it just comes in. It speaks to you immediately. in your time of judgment is coming. It's really near it's very close. And people are indifferent. People are lost. people's hearts are fully distracted. What are you what are they waiting for? So Allah subhanaw taala Salam.

00:12:31--> 00:12:34

Okay, let's do 47 of swords, Colombia.

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

Whoever has the

00:12:39--> 00:12:47

one novel zine and Lucas Bali yo mille nuclear Lokoja Mati fella to learn more nefs che

00:12:48--> 00:13:45

when you can miss por la have bet in min hora del in 18 B worker Vina CB in Thailand this is one of the linguistic beauties of the Quran as in something very obvious whenever I would in my wife zine and they spot me yo mill piano, we will set up for the day of judgment, the scales of justice. So he calls them supine, which are these skills are the skills of justice that will be set up on the day of judgment by Tula munaf soon che in there is not going to be one soul that will be mistreated. On that day, no one will find injustice on your Malkia everyone will find justice to what you can Mizpah hub button, men have Daelin attained be her and even if the Wade

00:13:47--> 00:14:21

even if the Wade deed is as small as they as a mustard seed is what is called a habit in McCarthy main hurdle is a mustard seed. And if you've ever seen a mustard seed, they're really puny. They're very small, they can fit on the in the crease of your finger, no matter how small it is. And the bigger you're talking about scales that are humongous, they're going to take in all the deeds that you did it lived the life maybe 80 7080 years is a lot of deeds, they have to be weighed in both sides of the scale, it's got a lot of stuff to put there. Something as small as a mustard seed may not be worth anything, but even something as small as a mustard seed will find its way into the

00:14:21--> 00:14:51

scale, what Kapha Bina has seen and you do not need anyone besides us to do the judgment, we will it is extremely thorough, is what he thinks of hunting with data on the Day of Judgment is extremely the skills are extremely thorough, nothing is missed, nothing is forgotten. Nothing is is looked at in a general perspective. So the details are not no no every detail will be brought and put in the scales of justice on the Day of Judgment. No one will be mistreated, no one.

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

This is one of the

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

most important Islamic concepts for us to remind ourselves of

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

When we come on the Day of Judgment, it's not.

00:15:04--> 00:15:22

That's what it's called, is the Day of Judgment, the Allman case of we are there to be judged, we are there for our deeds to be spread out and put in scales and seen and weighed out and weighed in terms of what was good and what was bad. And we have to make sure that the good is gonna outweigh the bad. If we want to stand a chance,

00:15:23--> 00:15:39

if you want to stand a chance of the Day of Judgment, that we have to make sure that the good deeds are going to outweigh the bad. And the good deeds are actually full, like they have substance there on empty, not shells that are sitting there. The proper audio software, Sam tells us that some of the people some of this OMA will come

00:15:41--> 00:16:05

if Allah who I'm Allah whom hada and Montura, it'll turn into into fluffy cotton. Like their deeds will be put into scales with a lot of them, but they have no weight. Because on the inside they're empty is an old story. We're going to the scholars, one of the automatic say that someone they fear coming on the day of judgment, and they're and that their deeds on the inside are completely rotten or eaten up by the by the warmth of RIA.

00:16:06--> 00:16:37

It's like, it's like you have the apple but on the inside is empty, because there's something it's been eaten up. There's nothing on the inside. There's almost a patent out on YouTube. I mean, it's a scary thing. You do good deeds of good deeds, but then the good deeds are meaningless. Because there's no class inside of them. There's no connection to Allah subhanaw taala the intentions were wrong. So yes, it has a nice shell on the outside. It looks it looks like something. It looks like something's a Salah, and so yeah, but on the inside is empty. So they're put into scales and the scales aren't going anywhere. And you're standing there and once in the scale, and then two in the

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

scale and three in the scale, and the scale a budget and

00:16:41--> 00:17:14

then they put another 100 and the scale is still sitting there and you're wondering where is this rigged? where's the where's the scale? Why isn't it going down? There's like 100 things in there that you pick up one of them is empty. It's one of those plastic balls children play with. filled with helium. There's nothing in it. And he tells us also in some person will get so anxious in the laundry room Alima la Ramiz, I know, but you're lucky enough See, he said there's a man a big man who is standing on the day of judgment and he's seeing his deeds being put in there in the scale of history not just not doing anything and he gets scared and anxious and upset and he sees that the

00:17:14--> 00:17:26

good deeds are almost done and still the Scaleless thing there throw he throws himself into the scale to weigh it down. But if I know you guys you know and Allah He Jenna How about Allah, and he himself has no weight on that day.

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

He himself has no weight on that day.

00:17:31--> 00:17:40

Literally and figuratively. He has no weight doesn't matter. When Allah or no YZ they spa Leo milk.

00:17:41--> 00:18:09

Tula mo Neff soon Shea way going can miss Carla hot button manikaran Deleon attain be her. Don't worry, you're not gonna be mistreated that day. No one's gonna be this these are the scales of justice. Just make sure you have something to put in them. Just make sure you have something to put in them. Because no matter how small the good deed is, be as small as a mustard seed. He'll bring it somehow No daddy, no put it for you. In his place in the Hadith

00:18:10--> 00:18:26

where the prophet Alia sources are these thoughts I'm told us of the man who comes on the day of judgment and this collection of Muslim with 99 Records of bad deeds 99 records, records not any papers records of bad deed. So he comes in he asks him I like

00:18:28--> 00:18:32

he's asked by Allah subhanaw taala Do you have a need you have an explanation for all this?

00:18:33--> 00:18:53

He said no, I don't feel Roman had shaitan Do you believe that any of these aren't yours like is this a mistake? God Allah call upon America captivity? Did my melodica who writes the deeds mistreat you by 99 records of bad deeds Bacala you know what he did in his life? He had no he had no nothing.

00:18:54--> 00:19:26

So he starts moving towards Janome for you now and Luca and Donna Mitaka you have we there's a card that you still have they'll call Matt and follow your path but what what is the card going to do with 99 Records of hindsight Yeah, they have nothing to put in there. Their skill isn't Bacala Yola more and then no one's gonna be mistreated if you if we if we owe you a card of good deeds you get the card of good deeds. So the card is brought in it brought to him and on it and upon it has written ILA in law law, and that card is taken as put in the in the in

00:19:27--> 00:19:48

the scale of the Senate and this was the prophet Allah is awesome says is what he did, he actually made this gesture for kind of Fatah Schutze jewelers and the records go flying into the air from the weight of that one card. So mild Hakuna nebi salah and the last call Allah, Allah He shake and nothing is heavier than the word of Allah under the name of Allah Jalla Jalla Lulu, okay.

00:19:49--> 00:19:53

Let's do 65 OF SWORDS Columbia.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

So lucky so we'll see him there.

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


00:20:04--> 00:20:05


00:20:07--> 00:20:10

knowing the story of Ibrahim out it you sit down

00:20:11--> 00:20:29

which is only told me this part of the story this part of his story I used was only told us with lambier in the details of course that we're going to talk about meaning is referred to elsewhere but it's not it's not explained by any by any deity by any detail or any similarity

00:20:30--> 00:21:03

to it, but I am it is that I'm sees people worshipping rocks, and offering them and giving them offerings and food and slaughtering in the end as a as a young person who was young in his teens. It didn't make any make any sense to him would ask questions. You'd ask questions in order to have any answers. He would, you know, challenge the thoughts I Ibrahim Ali said that was a very interesting figure you have to learn about Ibrahim Ibrahim is someone who, who valued critical thinking. And Ibrahim is the person who had questions all the time, he asked questions and he looked for answers. And if the answer didn't make any sense, he didn't accept it. He didn't turn off his brain and just

00:21:03--> 00:21:30

go with the answer. He stuck with it. And he kept on asking until the answer was clear to him I used salatu salam so he asked these questions about the Islam and no one gave him any answer that made any sense. So he got up says anyone I'm gonna I want to prove that these are worthless because they because they are. So once the people left for celebration and left the shrine with all of the idols there's a big one and smaller ones and everything so he went through and just whack them all and then he took it the fact that the the acts that he hit them with any any hung it on the it around the neck of the

00:21:31--> 00:22:01

cabinet, big of the big idol. And then they came in, they asked What is this and who did this to our Lords, I need to start saying things that make no sense at all. But they're saying it anyways, human beings tend to do that. Sometimes they say things, it makes no sense to us. But we just say, doesn't matter. We'll say it anyway, keep on going. And everyone just gets into the mood of just not just not care, let's not care. Let's not act like that. Let's act like the lack of logic. And what we're seeing is not lacking logic. Let's just Let's just turn off our brains for a second about that one. No, no, we'll be critical about everything else. Just this one here, I'll just not act like this is

00:22:01--> 00:22:16

important. It's just kind of ignore it. Just go keep on going. So he came to start asking questions who killed her lords and, and Ibrahim Ali Salam says, I need because they eventually accused him because he brought him on Islam. We had a lot of questions about them. So they thought probably you you didn't come with us because you're acting like you're sick, or you were sick.

00:22:18--> 00:22:26

So I told them, it's the big one who did it was a new home in Canada, we could ask them, ask them who did it to them. And they'll tell you

00:22:27--> 00:23:02

borracho, you know, unforeseen so they they talk to each other or they thought for a moment amongst each other. They'll call you in or come into more volume. This is an inner, an inner conversation, internal conversation either within there's no food inside of them inside themselves, or amongst them. Where they looked at each other said, I need this is what we're doing is obviously wrong. Why are we celebrating rocks? Why do we Why do we keep why do we Why do we keep this charade going. But follow in Documentum of volley moon, we are the ones you are the ones who are or who are oppressing yourselves and oppressing your minds by accepting something like this.

00:23:04--> 00:23:08

Whenever you are struck with cognitive dissonance, you have one of three one of three things you're going to do.

00:23:09--> 00:23:45

Cognitive Dissonance is when it's when something a fact is presented to you that challenges a belief you had before. When that happens when you believe something or you were told something understands the world in a certain way. And in fact, comes your way. And it's challenges that belief could be anything could be racist, it could be I hate people from this part of the world. And then somebody from that part of the world comes and saves my life. That's cognitive dissonance. Because I'm like, Well, I thought they were all bad. Now I have fact that they aren't. So now my check my belief is challenged. I don't know what to do anymore. So what are three things happens either you will accept

00:23:45--> 00:24:21

the fact that came to you accept the hug and that is what Muslims do. A true Muslim will always accept the HAC immediately leave what they have and turn to what is correct and what is righteous. Or you find a way to actually co understand both together mean you have a way of doing Gemini of saying okay, this new fact, if I understand it from this angle, it will fit with the fact that I have and I put them both together and actually bring them together. Or you just put your head down. Act like that fact didn't come and just keep on going. Just put your head down just just ignore it and just keep on just to stay and stay the course just to stay the course just forget about it. Just

00:24:21--> 00:24:28

keep on this is what we got. And then you overcompensate by committing to your false belief even more because now you feel how weak it is.

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

Why do you think the people who brought him chose?

00:24:34--> 00:24:36

Yeah, option three,

00:24:37--> 00:24:44

so much Nuki Sue Isla Rocio, this phrase in the Quran means the following so we understand what the phrase actually means in Arabic.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

Nakisha Allah, he mean, he took his head and put it in his behind and took his behind and put it in his head and then thought with what the thing that he put in his head. That's what it means. Meaning you're supposed to because your brain should be up here. So you're thinking what

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

Your head, but they decided to do a flip and then think with whatever they put in their head. Instead, the monkey Sue Allah who's sick and they didn't think with their brains, they thought with their behinds instead.

00:25:10--> 00:25:42

That is what this is the audacity they had coming to Ibrahim, listen to what they told him. Look at the Olympic hula cone. What is this? You're coming to us with logic, you know, they don't speak, you know that we've accepted that we're going to do this without any logic. Why are you? How dare you come and challenge us with some rationale and critical thinking, you know that we know that they don't speak. And we you know that we know that we don't care about that. And you will know that we know. And we know that you know that we know that this is all a charade. And we're doing it anyway. So what are you doing? How dare you come and bring us logic to something that we've all agreed we're

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

going to keep on doing even though it's false and meaningless.

00:25:46--> 00:25:58

That's what happened is what this verse means to Maliki. So Allah roussy him, and they said, like, I didn't know how to code for you doing everyone knows they don't speak. Suddenly. Now we're going to be logical about this.

00:25:59--> 00:26:04

So they said, The overcompensated, and they said, We're going to burn you.

00:26:05--> 00:26:41

We're going to build a large bonfire so large that all the cities around us will see it and then not not going to burn you like no, we're going to kind of pull you into the fire. Why because the fire is going to be so great. And so in the heat is gonna be so high the temperature that we can't be close to it. It'll burn us so we have to be a couple of kilometers away. So the only way to burn you in this amazing fight. This is how there's no company they're gonna just kill them. I don't know. Whenever you feel weak, you want to overcompensate you want a big bank something to kind of make it feel that it was worth it. So they were build this big fight, they're gonna catapult you This is

00:26:41--> 00:26:44

literally what they did. They're gonna catapult you into the fire

00:26:45--> 00:26:54

without fail, and this is maybe according to a diverse but I'll say it anyways because I like it. And it's one of the slightly it's a story that exists in the books of it in the Talmud.

00:26:56--> 00:27:01

We can tell their stories, as long as they don't go against any of our teachings in Islam, it's okay because especially historical ones.

00:27:02--> 00:27:04

And we have an FL

00:27:05--> 00:27:10

CL as well, with the lack of a certain degree of lack of authenticity, where Abraham Ali said

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

as he was being put in the catapults, Alehissalaam and he's looking ahead and there's a bonfire that is literally as far as as high as you can look. And he's being if people are there and they're chanting, and they're praising their false gods and they're happy that you need this criminal is going to be burnt. He's sitting there

00:27:30--> 00:27:36

and that he is sent into the sky and he is basically soaring in space and debris will come by

00:27:37--> 00:27:41

and he will say, Ibrahim, I like a hijab. Do you need anything?

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

Cory Ibrahim at Eastern am laka Bella,

00:27:49--> 00:27:55

as from you, I did nothing. Um, you li phenom, as from him, Yes, I do.

00:27:56--> 00:28:17

Call a full husband Allah who were killed. The Prophet alayhi salam tells us that this is the word that was said by the Muslims on the day of a budget. And this was the day that word that was sent by Ibrahim before he is thrown into the fire. So he said has to be Allah who are men who are keyed, Allah has all I need and He is the one who might fully depend upon. That's what this word means. Pulling I know.

00:28:19--> 00:28:32

The simplicity of this verse is tiny. It's scary. The simplicity of it. The verse we're putting now we said, yeah, no, oh fire. As simple as that. Who speaks to the elements?

00:28:34--> 00:28:37

who commands elements and tells them to be one thing and not the other?

00:28:38--> 00:28:49

I started from Allah subhanho wa taala. Yeah, no. Oh, fire. Cooney Bogdan wa salam and the cool and peaceful for Ibrahim, so it did.

00:28:50--> 00:28:52

So fire decided that's the fire

00:28:53--> 00:29:19

accepted the Command of Allah subhanho wa Taala and fire became Chill, chill, it was chilly. They would they would ask Ibrahim later what were the best days of your life he said Michael they do for now the days I spent in the fire because Allah subhanaw taala told the fire to be better than salam for me. The the fire was cool and peaceful. So I was cool and peaceful for a couple of days. It took a couple of days for the for it all to end and then Abraham comes walking out.

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

Do they believe? No, they don't.

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

I find

00:29:27--> 00:29:41

although I'll do what I have time for one more. I find that this story is so multi layered in terms of what you learn from it. I think one of the points that we don't learn from it that I want you to think about is the following did Ibrahim it he said I was tactic work.

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

Did it work?

00:29:45--> 00:29:52

No, it didn't. Right. He went he took an axe and he literally just wailed at these idols. He broke them all. Except one and it still didn't work.

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

Why? Because because of the because of the human nature of how we deal with ideas, because come

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

If dissonance is a problem that people take time, if you shock them too quickly and too severely, they may not listen. They mean they may need a little bit more time, they may need the love of easing into things to the problem it is slow to sit and learn from the story. And that's why the 365 idols that were sitting around the cabin not one of them were ever broken. The Prophet it is I'm never broke one of them never sent to illegals obeyed or thought, or say none of them. None of them went that night. Yeah, it was the silk around their face and, and just railed on a couple of them and ran away. They never did this, they never cause any problem for it. Because there was no point

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

because Abraham did it before it didn't do anything. That's not who changed people's minds. Actually, that's how you get them to become much more upset. That's how you get them to marginalize themselves and marginalize their lords. You see the people who brought him because he did that they became self righteous, He ruined our laurels, we're going to rebuild and burn him

00:30:48--> 00:31:24

to buy him learned it's not gonna work that like it's gonna work through to discussion. So he went and filmed marginality he later or Coca Cola heard or been had the discussions you start to start to actually argue discuss, use the the logic with people before he because no points and the Prophet Allah is also never broke up some and to make the story 100 for it to go 360 I need the story to be even more meaningful. When he finally came for Fatima. This is the wording of steel tubing as Heartland seated in his shop, this is the actual wording that he would come out of your soldiers on that day. And of course, the 365 snom are all there around the Kaaba, a quarter of a county have yet

00:31:24--> 00:32:01

to do a cola who woulda I'll help who was about to know about tilaka. And as a hookah say that has come in Bolton is gone. And Bolton has always been useless and weak. And he would point with his stick to the snom. And they would fall down. He would point and they would fall he wouldn't hit them. He just pointed they would fall down. And he pointed at them all and this is the wording and see if they have a mishap to say that sometimes a symptom is not worth going after you have to go after the root cause go see why why people believe in this go see if you can change the way your thought goes even change their mentality. If you can change the mentality, then they'll start will

00:32:01--> 00:32:25

just fall on their own. Because you're not worth anything just a rock. But they're a manifestation of a very ill thought process of problems that exist that you have to deal with first, just watching the sun is not going to change anything. You have to do more than that. I think that lesson sort of Colombia is extremely, extremely important and very, very helpful. Okay, let's let's do a number of Lebanon's total hedges so at the end each I do something.

00:32:26--> 00:32:27

Yeah. I

00:32:30--> 00:32:43

mean in nursing Yabu law, her adda her BA in Asaba, who a year on a coma and Nabi marine also over to finetuning

00:32:44--> 00:33:08

yj. In other words, he hasura duniya when the Euro Nika who, who's wrong will be the first that you need to take time and when you listen to it, contemplate he's amongst people are those who worship Allah or serve Allah, I know. You're standing on an edge. Right? There's an edge, they're standing right on the edge.

00:33:10--> 00:33:48

That is a problem. Your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala shouldn't be on an edge in asado higher. Play your mind? Never he if good things happen. Okay. All right. I'm okay. We're in Asaba to fitna, and if something bad happens and talking about ideology, he falls down. He loses his faith. It's like their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. They're worshipping of Allah is someone standing on a cliff, just at the edge. If things work out, they'll stay on the cliff on top, no problem. At the moment, things don't work out for them and they get a difficulty they fall on their faces Katsuyama duniya, when they lose duniya, and they lose their Lika who will who struggle

00:33:48--> 00:34:01

moonbeam that is the clear loss. That is true losing. If you want to talk about losing that is loss, where your relationship with Allah subhanho data is circumstantial and is very narrow.

00:34:02--> 00:34:38

there as long as he keeps on giving you what you want, and what you need, you're good. And the moment he doesn't, then everything is lost. The scary concept, I've seen it too many times. May Allah protect all of us see, I mean, because you may not be on a cliff right now. But life can push you far enough until you are you may not be you may not be saying that that edge, you may not be on the edge right now and I'm doing it on the edge. But I can tell you, Allah, Allah knows what it takes to get you right on that edge. And then keep you over because he knows subhanaw taala if he has been generous with you so far, not to push you to the edge and not to tilt you over, then be

00:34:38--> 00:34:57

very grateful. Because why we spent which is why hamdulillah has what we start every Salah with because we're lucky he says he hasn't put us on the edge yet. He hasn't made it difficult to us at the points where we are on our edges. And this versus just very scary. And that's what sorts of tells us. It tells us that your journey it's a journey. You're a lady with the lies a journey. It's a journey. It's not a moment it's not

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

it's not just a it's not a

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

Data is it's a journey and sometimes it will be difficult sometimes it'll be easy and sometimes you have to be flexible and you have to continue to persevere and you have to continue to strive. If you're gonna that's why a pilgrimage is a journey on its own. So let's do one more and then we'll we'll get let's do it. I'm gonna love him. Or actually 4646 Sorry So 246 the last 1/3 musc roof in our belief at Hakuna Oui. Oui.

00:35:27--> 00:35:30

Oui oui, una the

00:35:33--> 00:35:34

smell goon IV.

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

The in

00:35:38--> 00:35:49

Erbil for working da Kulu will alert if you saw do it as a pilot which I had they not walked the earth

00:35:51--> 00:35:57

and then used the tools that I gave them. But Hakuna Allah whom pollun Yachty Luna behind

00:35:59--> 00:36:00

the curb is the subconsciousness.

00:36:01--> 00:36:40

Well, they're not walk the earth and have the subconsciousness that is capable of comprehending and absorbing the realities that surround them the facts of the universe that they are witnessing. Then on your smartphone whenever you hear or ears through which they can hear and listen to the stories of those who came before them. He thinks of I know Donna, if you don't believe in what I'm telling you. This is what he's saying in the Quran. You don't believe go walk the earth go travel. Go Travel and absorb your surroundings when you do and listen to the stories of the people who lived before you are in the Hala Tamela Busan because really blindness is not the lack of the ability to see with

00:36:40--> 00:37:17

your eyes. What I can tell him and globality for sewer. But what actually goes blind is that subconsciousness when it loses insight is the problem is not the loss of sight of sight is the loss of insight. And they're different. They're very different. How many people don't see with their eyes, but their hearts they strictly see through their hearts very well. They have insight to what's happening around them. Insight requires you to absorb stuff. You have to absorb stories, you have to absorb surroundings you have to think of to contemplate and when you do that you come to conclusions those conclusions are what's going to save you. What if What if you don't if you don't have that the

00:37:17--> 00:37:31

only clue if the hearts are blind, and there's no insights then yeah, then you see things and you don't learn anything from them. Something happens called a disease or virus comes and wipes out millions of people.

00:37:32--> 00:37:33

When we learn nothing from it

00:37:35--> 00:38:09

has nothing to do with us being able to see with our eyes it has something to do with what you see with our hearts are able to take our input and we're able to learn a lesson from something that happened to us as collectively as a human race as a community as a society as a country or do we not have the ability to do that this is a proverb became an Arabic of what I can when the Hydra Tamela Basalt is not is that lose their ability to see what I can tell them is Hearthstone lose their insight the hearts that exists in the chests that some consciousness of yours loses its ability to have insight I think it's worthy of reflection on but that's the problem honey Shula and just to

00:38:09--> 00:38:14
