a lot of a sudden he was telling him about it, you know, have you been at Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi urgent.
So today inshallah I will conclude. So to Modesto, which I did not manage to do yesterday, insha Allah, and I'll talk about this piano as well, hopefully finishing, finishing both on time today. As soon as
I started talking a little bit about it, and it's a surah with total Muslim, they bring forward two pillars, that a person who is going to perform dollar muscles that's going to need fuels for the soul in order for this person to be able to continue the journey, which is what Susan was eminent talks about, it talks about the talks about talks about this talks about talks about Tibet, it talks about sober issues that we need in order for us to be able to continue the journey. And this wasn't how was supposed to look on the outside what actual data was, but what does that actually mean in terms of what you taking to people. And that's what this
instance was touched on. Just again, you can see it with detail is what is going to be apparent. And that ended those choices of words, within the names of the sewers are very meaningful. And I talked about the commands that Allah subhanaw taala gave at the beginning of the surah come for me, if I can deal with the
or who will attend the
beaker, first period. And those commands at the time, were very meaningful and almost groundbreaking, because of the fact that was from some of the first commands that the Prophet audience thought was said on the Sahaba ever heard from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And it talked about an issue of being a purity, purifying your appearance and then purifying your soul and then staying away from all moral impurities and, and being perseverant. As you walk down that road. And you get you're given the example of mohila Someone who refused help refuse what is what is correct or what is what was seemed to him to be the right thing, just based on self interest, which is something
that someone who's going to carry the message of Allah subhanaw taala can definitely not afford to do at any point. And then the last example that I talked about was Cody, who I didn't have this at the show. And the fact that Allah subhanaw taala exposed a flaw in the thought process of the people of Jamia, which is they get a fixation on details that are not meaningful, that do not have any effect on behavior. And any form of fixation on details that do not affect human behavior does not affect how we are as people getting improving as human beings is a waste of time and effort. And even if you're performing dower but you're performing data and you're talking about issues that
don't matter. You're explaining concepts that don't change people's outlooks. It does change their perspective, it doesn't improve their behaviors, what you're talking about is a waste of time. Just it's very simply, it's a very easy way to figure out what your compasses and performing Dawa, the topic that you're talking about. Is it going to lead to an improvement and improvement in people's outlooks and behaviors? Or is it not? Probably not, or the changes very few tiles are very, very trivial or very simple and doesn't really mean that much. It's just an issue of an appearance that maybe you should you should be talking about something different. And that's what's the verse you
know, that's why the verse was revealed and then Allah subhanaw taala along, you're right after that explained
the Illa Mala.
If you move forward with the sutra, Allah subhanaw taala.
Continuously says mas silica fee sufferer. A question is asked upon the people orangette minimum. And an answer comes to us from Jana,
Yanni, and a question is posed to people who entered South about a party. And we get to hear the answer. Coming up to us from Jana. Malia is an extremely scary thought that you're actually listening to this answer. And in the words of people who are injured following laminectomy Minalima. Saline Well,
skin, what could
you lead with? ZBB oh, maybe Dini had talked about four things. The first and last one your findings? By eliminating minimal saline you have no problem with that someone who doesn't perform with time, does not establish affairs is going to be punished to milk them and we can all agree on that one. And the last one, you're finally as well. But when manuka VBB only Dean, someone who does not believe in the hereafter altogether, there's plenty of money. But what about the ones in the middle? What about the ones in the middle where they say what I'm not we're not talking when we skin and we did not feed the orphan? When was that a criteria for not entering journalism? When was that
a criteria to actually go into Johanna we did not feed an orphan and how many orphans? Are we feeding on a daily basis any of us? But this is what the Quran says no, if it made this up, you probably would have objected and said Now you're saying things that don't make sense. But this is what Allah subhanaw taala is saying, and the book is talking with Destiny when we're given how we're supposed to carry ourselves to the public. It's trying to explain there are two elements of this. Yes, there's this
ritual, the ritual one based ritual based element, which is an email to be able to do but then there's another element to it the element of human benefits of actually being there for other people, which is half of what cuisine is based on half of Islam is our good or deeds that are that are designed to serve other people half of it if you leave that half well
miskeen which is an easy one. But what about if you can agree to that? Well, I'm gonna ski and I think that's great. But can you agree to Hakuna hobo Malhar Ilene
whole is just to talk about things that are useless.
We just whatever was making wherever people, I just went with the flow. Hold on, hold on, I thought your lien is whatever, in whatever direction the the, the current was, I was, I didn't put up a fight. I just ran with the streaming, whatever, in whatever direction it was, whatever people were doing, that's what I was doing a hold on my on the property. Hadith.
Don't be someone who just does it the
were would I can be someone who if people are good, you're good. If people aren't good, you're not good. But you have to establish yourself, which is what's the first verse?
Do you have to take a stand, you have to decide what your ethics are going to look like. And then you have to adhere to the to them, and you have to commit to them.
Hold on, there's a real problem. Or we just go with the flow. And this is something
similar would say, Well, that was a year.
It was a year two or shooting. I am just a part of my tribe. If my tribe is good, I'm good if my tribe of idiots tonight. I still I always whenever it's whenever people are doing that's as far as I know, opinion in myself, I have no actual ability to make a decision or, or do something based on my understanding of what is right and wrong.
These are the answers you're getting from Jonathan.
I think it's I think it's worthy for us to listen to them.
And who's better for us to listen to them someone was calling upon us from from the hellfire. And you're asking them, why are you there and they said, Well, I we, we didn't pray. And we didn't feed the orphan. And we just went with the flow, we had no personality, we had no character, we had no integrity, we just did whatever, whatever other people were doing. And we didn't really believe in the hereafter altogether, don't cherry pick, no, and say I'm not gonna make sure I went number one, we're number four, I'm going to I'm going to perfect like number two. And number three, don't matter too much don't you can't cherry pick, you don't, you don't get to do that. And if we do that, and
you're putting yourself at a risky or wealthy, because it's not, you're not doing what what Allah subhanaw taala very clearly explained.
And that is what sort of
explains to us how we're supposed to carry ourselves, the commands we're going to do, we're going to adhere to and follow in terms of how we carry ourselves to others. And it's giving us a template at the end here for here's examples, some spiritual, some ritual based and some of them are just plain behavior, some of them just plain empathy. And just being able to take a stand and be someone who believes in something truly and doesn't just follow the flow, just go with the flow.
instead of sumosalad, the three sugars that are left in the bottle, all of them are examples of Dow there are other examples of how you can perform it in three distinct maps. Each one has a has a different way of
talking about tomorrow, very simple. One of them is web and one of them is web is very clear, not much required to explain we just go through the verses enjoy them, Why then does Dawa by by encouraging you or telling you have the rewards that are to come in and the other one is telling us is performing to abide by warning us of the punishment, but social Tianmen for that performance in a different way. A performance by addressing the intellect by addressing that upper part or the higher, the higher part of who we are as human beings. And we there's an aspect to us that is very earthly, when the when the Spirit touched the justice, the Earth, the soil based body, the nuts was
born from that, from that union, and all our lives is gonna give you parts of our character that is going to be based on the fact that we are from the earth from the soil. And that's why i That's why even though he works, that's why we're telling you that there's reward coming that works. And warning of punishment also works. But it works out primitive part of who we are. It's very effective and it's important, but then there's addressing a higher part of who you are addressing your superiors, talking to the room, talking to that part of you that is able to comprehend deep concepts and understand things on a
Love build that is not based on just wanting just a desire or pleasure or a fear of pain, something a bit more deeper than that. And that's what
tackles and talks about. That's why it's beautiful sutra. That's why people enjoy talking about it. And he begins to find out what dialogue by by taking an oath vo PM. Bye
bye but right after that
I take an oath by the innocent, lower, what is it? It's your conscious. It's just, it's just your conscious. It's the part of the soul. It's a part of the soul that will blame you when you make a mistake. You know that piece of you that you know you're doing something wrong, that voice that nags at you in the back of your mind when you're doing something, you know, you shouldn't be doing that. It's just your conscience, that conscience that conscious that you have is a function of a higher cognitive attribute of who you are as a person. It's something that comes from the Spirit, something comes from the room, that you're able that is actually able to feel guilty, it's able to feel that
this wasn't the right thing to do. I shouldn't be doing this even though it is doing it but it knows it shouldn't be. So it leaves itself and it blames you for why you're doing this.
If it goes off, nothing is left. If your conscience dies, then really you're not really alive anymore. Technically speaking, most psychologists will tell you that the definition of a sociopath or a psychopath is basically someone who just their conscience died for some reason. For some reason as they grew up or during their adult life. They did certain things certain things happen to them, the conscience died, I just don't feel guilt anymore. They don't feel empathy. They don't feel the pain of other people's and forget about feeling pain for themselves. So Allah subhanaw taala takes an oath by Neff Silva, the part of us that that is a little bit on a higher level mammals don't out
other mammals besides anything, they don't know. You don't see Tigers walking around, I was guilty for eating because they don't feel bad if they if they take what they want for themselves and leave the other party with nothing, just don't feel it, because it is not a part of who they are. But it's a part of who we are. And it has to be involved in decision making. And he continues to pile on which I will insert Al Anon Naja
Bella Padina says we will read in the Jura.
Does human beings think that we cannot regain either his bones after he dies? Does he think that we cannot put together his body the way it was before even reconstructing his fingerprint the exact way it was in his life? You think that's not possible? You think that whoever created the first time around is going to find difficulty creating you yet again? No, that's not a problem. That was the problem.
The real problem, the issue, the real issue. And bail is basically a sentence in English by saying that, no, it's not that just not that they don't believe in God so that they will believe ALLAH is capable of this, the real reason is, what's to come next. That's just two letters in the Arabic language gives a full sentence, you read it inside and the human being just hopes that he can continue with his life to do whatever he wants to do perform whatever voodoo or whatever, by whatever sins he can perform, without feeling guilty as a human being just wishes that they could find some way, some way out of being restricted in some way out of having limitations. They can live
their lives however they want to live it. This is this is the reason to TM as performing DALBAR reminding us of key aspects, key aspects elements of who we are as human beings. This is these are the desires that exists inside.
All of us each and every one sitting here.
The next on the inside.
Those items occur
for purification of the soul and the spirit.
Deep inside would love for there to be some way to live out every fantasy that they have.
It's a part of it. They're part of the psyche. It's always there. It's a thought process. They always wish that somehow no one wouldn't be watching. You can just do whatever you wanted all the things that you wish you could do that you couldn't you can't do for whatever restriction reasons whether it's society or whether it's fearfulness of Allah subhanaw taala or adherence to a way of thought or whatever it may be deep inside, we just wish we could just break loose and go forward except those who have purification and Allah subhanaw taala saying a lot of the reasons that people who don't believe in God comes back just to that simple point that the human being you really have
to do Rama Amana means what's ahead of him in his life, just wishes hopes that he can continue to do whatever he wants to do. No one wants to be restricted by these limitations of a muscle. So they go around. He goes around asking a young pm so when is this? So Allah subhanaw taala answers?
what do you mean I show up at the day where the eyes are dazzled?
And the moon is destroyed and the suns and the planets are all mushed together, and there's complete destruction of the world of the physical world that you're aware of.
Have you lived in a hole inside? Or you're in a in a film? Where do we run at that data? He starts asking, Where do we go? Where do we hide? Where do we ask? Is there a place for us to hide?
There's nowhere to hide. There's no refuge, there's no place that can can protect.
You know, because you may be leaning. On that day, the only destination that is waiting for you is when you is the destination that will bring you to speak to your Lord is the small area where you'll be standing facing Allah subhanaw taala himself answering for the way that you've lived your life.
Whatever you're making, be mailed.
On that day you will be you'll be very well
enlightened and shown everything that you did in your life by demo, what took you forward a lot, I want you to back the stuff that the deeds that are allowed you to do to move forward with these that hold you back all about the explaining. But then he says to find out what to add again, again, touching on the aspect of ourselves of who we are as human beings, that allows us to be allows us to be different than all the other creations but in certain CE Brasil whenever you
indeed the problem again, again, meaning no, no, that was not the problem. The problem again, is not that they don't believe in Jamelia, the problem is not the fact that they're not afraid of it. The problem is that the human being truly knows, he has true insight. basura is insight. Most letters for you this is the function of the eyes, mostly a function of the heart,
is your insight. And the human being has full insight, we have full insight on who we are, and what we're doing and where we're going wrong. And what we need to do better, full insight, you don't need life coaches, you don't need people to explain to you, you just need to
turn your vision from looking outwards, to looking inwards. That's all it is. It's just, it's just a shift of focus, instead of looking at what others are doing around you, and analyzing behaviors of those surrounding you who just start analyzing your own behaviors. And we know ourselves in certain
Even if the human being gives excuses, see, I can beat you in a in a discussion or conversation of why you're not doing something. If you're not doing something, and I tried to convince you to do it, I tell you that maybe the way you're living right now is wrong. And you can change. You can meet me in a discussion or conversation easily. You can prove to me how you cannot do it. How life is too difficult how it's impossible to get it done. And you'll give me I have no way to I have no way to win this argument. It's impossible for me or anyone else. If you have a child and they're strong. Yeah, they're very good. I don't know. Why didn't you do this? They have they have their excuse list
ready? And they're very convincing. And they know exactly what because you know, but on the inside, you know, when you're just making things up, you know what, it's all just a lie, you know, when it's just because I have no way to actually prove that what you're saying, Is it true that you're going to win this argument. But you know, no matter how many excuses you give, that you could have done, what you should have done, but you didn't for whatever, for whatever reason you can make up but doesn't make a difference. It still takes us back to that early point, that we have full insight and insight
into Insight is there we know what we're doing. We know the mistakes you don't need to be. You don't need to hear those every day. You don't have to have someone who's watching over you every day, you just need to focus your vision and stop making up excuses. Maybe you can make excuses in dunya and convince people in front of you why things aren't working out and they'll be convinced, but I want to see you I want to see how you do that.
I want to see how you do that when you stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala what you're going to do, you're gonna lie your way through that as well. We're gonna lie we're gonna lie to Allah subhanaw taala I don't find a way to convince them of something that is true, that is true or the opposite. It's not going to happen.
Then it takes us to a moment of humility ama when your book is being read to you. Now these verses depending on which investor you read for will either be seen as verses that are addressing the prophet Isaiah SelectUSA when the Quran was being revealed to him, and that is completely valid, and it's proper, another understanding of these verses, which is I think is more in keeping with the flow of Surah is that
now to Henrik at least
that these words are being said to the person and we omit the understanding they're having their book recited upon them. You see your male family gonna read your book for you it's gonna it's going to be opened up and everything is going to be recited every deed every mistake every excuse every
as it's sitting right in front of you. You start reading quickly to the Senate. Why? Because he wants to jog through certain parts. So you start moving or turning reading quickly trying to get maybe over this paragraph because
paragraph is very very discomforting for you because you know that you didn't do the right thing here. So you're commanded by Allah, stop, stop reading along, we don't need you to
just stick in 19 hijama we put it together with Quran, Allah will read it upon you.
We read upon you what you did just follow along so you can see what happened to me. And then we'll explain. And then we'll clarify for you anything, any aspect of your book in your deals that aren't clear to you, anything that you have objections to everything, anything that you think shouldn't be there, or you don't think is acceptable. Allah subhanaw taala clarified why, because those who's passed away leave this dunya without having that moment of clarity with themselves without actually forcing it upon themselves, meaning actually activating it. So using their insight upon their own soul will go you'll come you'll meet them and they're still making things up.
Yo, man, Allah Who Jimmy Lee flew in Ghana yesterday for a local
Nomad, she, some people come up to me and they'll swear to God Himself. We didn't do this, just like they swore to you and doing it. They didn't do him to they did it. And we
che and they think that they have that they have a good argument. It's insane. Why was some How could you do that? Like, like, if you're lying to a person, and that's one thing because they can't figure it out. But how could you go lie to God, it doesn't make any sense. But people not only will they swear to God, that they didn't do something that they did, but they feel that they have a good argument. You can lie you can lie to ourselves is how we're built as human beings, we have the ability to lie to ourselves to the point where we believe our own lies, and we got caught up into them, and we don't even know what's reality anymore. And we're not able to even identify what is
real and what is real. And it's gonna take the person to the point where they come in they and they lie to Allah.
Allah Jalla and they feel that they're doing the right thing they feel they have a right you know, I
I, this is the truth. And Allah subhanaw taala will, will show videos, it will be audio video, it'll be parts of your body, everything will be testifying. No, that's not true. And at that point, you'll know the truth. But the thing is all your life, you kind of knew the truth anyways, in Santa Fe, he always knew. But maybe just too many excuses were thrown out and in use and we just didn't really use it. You can use to find out and he points out to a boon Gee G letter.
There's nothing wrong with loving an alligator by the way. It's okay to love dunya the love the people in it until about you're able to achieve the problem is when it's accompanied by the second part of this verse. The problem is when you add to it, whatever.
When is it meaningful to you, when you're focused in what you're doing is not a loss of power, that it is not that you're after, if you add that to the fact that dunya is very beloved to you, then the problem occurs, where for someone to love the life that they have loved the people around them love with Allah subhanaw taala has given him and dunya means something to them. That's not, we're not supposed to hate it. You're not supposed to go through life hating life and hating the world around you. But the problem is, if that's the only love that you have, there is no other love. The love of dunya is what actually dictates every decision that you make and you love completely, even though
you know it's coming down the road, it's just a few steps away.
would you when you're eating best, just one way and you file on behalf.
So to try to explain performance Java, and its addressing the intellect. So the only aspect of nayeem in the sutra, so you understand how delicate and how accurate the sutra is. The only aspect of name is a name that doesn't really relate to us immediately meaning and you'll see a social incentive aspects of name are very physical, they're very tangible. They're things that we can relate to. There are ways to draw analogies, we can we can understand
it, we can understand a lot of food and water and a good and good atmosphere and good environment, we can understand that. But the only aspect of money is your money to faces look good. Why? You know behind? No, you know, because these faces are looking at their Lord, can you actually understand that? None of us can, none of us can actually understand the name of seeing Allah subhanaw taala. And that's why he's brought into piano because it requires a certain elevated cognitive skill to actually understand what it means for one day to look at the face of Allah subhanaw taala because there's nothing for us to actually imagine there's nothing there's no parallel to draw here. What
can you imagine that would be okay. In regards to this idea? Nothing. Anything that you imagine is wrong and it shouldn't be imagining anything, but he's talking about that he's touching on that part of you. How about you leave Genja for a moment, maybe leave the primitive pleasures that you'll find and think about this leisure
It is of a much higher level, a much higher degree when you actually look at Allah subhanaw taala his face he says Allah He said,
When he talked about an agenda demon Zilla, he talked about the people who are the lowest agenda, the person who just made it the last person to make it out of.
And it's a long story. It's a beautiful story, but this person enters gender. And Allah says, Allah tells them, I will give you not only
I'm gonna give you an agenda, not only the amount of the volume of the earth in terms of sovereignty for you to live in, I'm going to times it by nine, it will be nine planets for you just to walk through, it's all yours go spend the next 1000 years discovering just the moon that I gave you. So the Sahaba here?
If that's, that's the lowest and then who is the if this is an
omen, you're not alone right out of beam who do well, why she yeah, those are people who see their Lord twice a day. Those are people who see Allah subhanaw taala agenda twice every day. For now, yes, you do and get in here.
And they find nothing that is more pleasurable, that is more enjoyable, that is more beautiful to their souls, than being able to look at Allah subhanho wa taala. And they live between the moments of just waiting for the next time to go back and look at Allah subhanho data because all the beauty that is encompassed in this world, as we asked us to beauty every pleasure has one source has one source, one Creator created all of it. So if you enjoy the basic pleasures and beauty, imagine going and looking at the source of it all, and being in contact with the source of it all.
And that's what
gives you pleasure. How about you forget about the simple stuff, thinking bigger thinking bigger than just
the fruits, which is great, you should definitely do that. We'll talk about that tomorrow. But there's an aspect that's a bit higher, which we'll we'll meet in no. Behind Alberta. And there are their faces that are that are darken and upset and they're frowning, why you finally knowing that what's coming is going to be extremely painful and difficult knowing that what's coming is going to feel humiliating, fast. It's going to be very humiliating what's coming next because they know they didn't do their job. kalila either Bella was
became a woman even Elon Musk fell out
when I can watch
Hola, hola. Hola. Hola. Hola.
A moment, the spirit will reach the collarbones honestly. And someone will say is there a doctor in the house? Can someone please can you please save this person's life? Can you can you curse here this person?
medicine doesn't do miracles really, medicine is very limited.
Well, then we don't even know what to get off. And they know is the departure time. It's the time where passable parts finally was definitely
Arabic faces say things get extremely serious really quickly. It's an Arabic phrase, I'm not gonna go into the Linguistics of it. But it means that things got really serious. And it's very difficult, you know, became myself on the Day of Judgment, you will be led towards your Lord, and then the reminder will be lost. You didn't believe what I was suddenly an odd pray when I can tell you that by what he turned his back to what he knew was right. And he refused to believe what was told to him. That was the truth. And it was clear to him that it was the truth.
No matter how about
money went in, in a state of joy of being a jolly and happy about it, taking it lightly, really not caring about all of it. It's all just an issue of mockery.
it would have been better for you. Had you thought a little bit differently? Had that necessarily been activated? Had that insight people see it? I've been working, it would have been better. Oh,
meaning it's an emphasis. It's an emphasis of the first one. So my Hola Hola. Hola that emphasize it again? And would it be much better? It would have been so much better if you just decided to be different. So much better if you just prioritize differently. If the priorities in your life were just a bit better, it would have been so much different for you at this moment than it is right now.
That Sora Ellen's and this is Social camera is just an example of Dawa. It really is it is it is Dawa. If you wanted to do download, just memorize and take the contract explain them but you're speaking to the intellect. You're speaking to someone who has who has a strong conscience who is willing to think and listen
to you talk us through that as a human being thing that can be left aimless, useless, with no goal with no purpose just left neglected. Sudha Allah made me money he Yamuna McCann, Allah, Allah.
General I mean who Zildjian is
left with no aim
You're gonna love it neglected, where you not one day just a small piece of sperm in a place that doesn't see the light that you're not going to be created and then you reached a certain equilibrium and then you grew up to be something that is cognitively able and you had a life and you had a consciousness that all happen then and nothing you don't think that the one who did that first time around can do it yet again. You don't think
Where's Where's where's the intellect? That's the industrial piano. So
let us talk to people to believe
it you know, Muhammad Iwata, you
