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

We stopped at

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

number 19 Last week wasn't the best place to actually stop honestly. But we just ran out of time and I,

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

I couldn't go anymore. So we stopped. But I probably should have kept on going until

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

until I had number 26. With no and all fairness. And the Quran is the sutras in the Quran just as a

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

kind of general explanation for you are formatted differently. Not all sources are the exact same format in terms of how they're broken down, they sometimes work a little bit different some sources are basically a one

00:00:46--> 00:01:28

central verse that the whole sort of works up to the first half of this one works up to and the next half of the surah comments on like makes commentary. Sometimes you have multiple central verses in a sutra, you have maybe three or four and there's a build up the verse, and then a commentary, a build up a verse a commentary, it's sometimes you have the central verse at the beginning, and it's just commentary after that sometimes the whole build up is to one verse right at the end. And sometimes you have it into paragraphs, just charge different paragraphs, one paragraph following following the other. And sometimes you have stories in between each story, there's commentary upon the story, then

00:01:28--> 00:01:43

another story then commentary on that, that story, and then and then a finale at the end that summarizes but solos are broken down differently in the Quran. So it's an important skill or it's important thing to kind of be acquainted with is how the Quran is actually kind of

00:01:45--> 00:02:08

made up and how it's made up what is made up into, and how the verse how each sutra has a structure that may be different than the sort of before it or after it. And the more you read in, the more you listen, the more you'll figure it out how these tools work, and they're really very nice, like when you do understand it a little bit. It's beautiful, because each sort of has its own kind of flavor and its own rhythm, it kind of works on its own, in its very unique way. So go out cow

00:02:10--> 00:02:38

is and the majority of students are chapter based, like our paragraph base, that's the majority of solos is one paragraph following following the other, each paragraph looking at the same theme from different angles, that's the majority of sources of the Quran. And that's mostly what we've read so far, within the within the US and the smallest, the shorter stores have left, less of a diverse breakdown in general. But I'll start pointing those out to you Inshallah, as we go along just for your own Jonnie

00:02:39--> 00:02:40


00:02:41--> 00:03:07

So go out guys, this is chapter basis, very simple. Started with the introduction, which we spent a fair amount of time last week about the Alacati welltower. And the inevitable event occurs. Les sediba, Katia katiba, no soul, no living or existing soul can deny it when it occurs, call Phila to a rock raffia it will devalue some will elevate the status of some.

00:03:08--> 00:03:44

And that's what's going to happen on the day of judgment, the judgment will break and change the laws of status. These are the unspoken laws that we all understand very well. Even if you don't talk about it, but we understand how they work. Understand what you do, we all understand what it requires. As you grow up in life, you start to figure out what it is that you need to have status to be respected to have importance and significance in a society. And because you start understanding that you start knowing what to go after people by the way, who don't pick that up end up being very struggling in life, like those who for some some reason don't miss the social cues throughout their

00:03:44--> 00:04:00

development and end up not really figuring out what the status is and why it's needed and struggling a lot in life until they figure it out. So but the majority of people kind of get get ahead gotta get a good hint of what it is that you need to be in a position where you can or you can voice your opinions and you can be respected

00:04:01--> 00:04:36

and there's a lot of elements to that in dunya and wealth is a is a part of it academics at this day and age is a part of it. Politics is a big piece of it your last name where you come from in the world your social position amongst your family and within the groups that use oh this kind of adds up all of it adds up all these things kind of add up and give you a specific status in life. Whether you're married or not how many kids you have who's you know who you're related to? Your friends are Oh, the networking piece of friends that's a big deal if you're friends with somebody, sometimes all you need sometimes people understand this is

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

I don't know what happened today

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

I think I've been talking all day so that's why

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

sometimes just knowing someone right if you know somebody you know someone big enough then that's the status you can just ride that for as long as they are. Big deal. So people figured out how to do it. The world coffee look, Rafi is is that you

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

You're looking at I've changed all changes all that none of that matters all that just kind of fades away. None of it's important anymore. Now your status is based solely on whether your, your, your Isabey gonna serve you when the pioneers, the Pioneers are as high believe me that people have the blessing.

00:05:16--> 00:05:50

The people who are blessed, the people have the right, or malaria to build outside Oshima, the people, any of the bad omen or the left, and that's it, that's it, nothing else matters anymore. And a lot of people are gonna be upset on the day JoJo and inshallah a lot of people will be very happy to, there'll be there'll be mixed feelings on that day quite quite a bit, because some people will live their lives and they never actually achieved the status they were hoping for, for different reasons. But ended up on the day of judgment on the right side of things, and their status is high. A lot of people who live their lives, and they're actually well respected and do really, really well

00:05:50--> 00:06:19

in this world. And then on day judgment, they don't get that they don't have the same that means they're actually not offered. That is what I'm saying doesn't mean that if you have good status, and don't you won't have it the day judgment or the opposite. That's not what I'm saying at all, not not, not at all. Sometimes people have good sides in both, and some people have bad status and both as well. But it's saying that it's going to change the criteria on which your status is based on the judgment and how you're going to be viewed and how you're gonna view yourself, it's gonna be changed. It's not the same rules that govern it right now. And that hurts because it's too is so

00:06:19--> 00:06:51

sudden, it's very, it just happens really quickly. There's no, there's no graduality to it. Anything gradual doesn't doesn't surprise people, it's fine, because you get used to it with time. And the judgment is so sudden, you go from understanding the world in a certain way. It's always been like this, the world has always worked like this, I've always understood that this is how the world works, I know exactly how to get what I want and how to be. And I'm happy with the status that I have, I'm not looking too high up, and I'm not like I'm not too low down, I'm somewhere where I want, and then their judgments come suddenly and just just wrecks, all of it just completely just

00:06:51--> 00:07:20

shatters the whole thing, if you'd like to raffia is gonna start moving people around. So if you're not ready for it, like if you're not if you're mentally, if you're mentally and spiritually not ready for that, you're gonna it's gonna be very hard. But if you're ready for you won't be won't be bothered, because you know exactly. Because if you're prepared from now, on what your status on the dangerous day of judgment is going to be based on then you just start preparing for it. If you know you're ready, and you're prepared, because you know that the judgments not going to be based on how much wealth I have. It doesn't matter what how many letters existed before my name, or after how

00:07:20--> 00:07:51

many lines under my name before My signature is there and how many divisions I have added in how many things I have chaired and how many know that no one cares about that doesn't matter how big my bank account is, and how many people I know and how many people would wait for me and asked for my time and doesn't no one cares. That doesn't matter on the day judgment has never worked. It never really did never did to begin with. But it definitely doesn't matter then. So if you're ready for that and you're prepared, that doesn't mean you're gonna be fine. You know exactly what you're banking on. You're banking on the wrong stuff. In difficult moments in life, you bank on things. Now

00:07:51--> 00:08:03

Muslims should only really deep inside only bank on Yanni the Delica Allah Allah subhanaw taala really that's which should be a deep, deep inside, you know that Allah subhanaw taala will want to get you out of bad, bad bad moments.

00:08:05--> 00:08:31

But in life, you know, in difficult moments, you bank on certain things, you know, you got me you put your you put your trust in certain things that you've got, if you're in a really difficult situation and put your trust in the fact that you're wealthy, or you put your trust in the fact that you're well connected. Or you put your trust in the fact that you're maybe young or maybe you're that you're physically capable. Or if you put your trust in something that almost says put their trust in Allah subhanaw taala. And that's a whole different discussion that really has today at least it's not, it's not for it.

00:08:33--> 00:09:06

You bank on something, and dunya on your meal, piano, whatever it is you are banking on and Dunya doesn't work. It doesn't work on the day judgments, it doesn't exist anymore. Because those stuff are gone. You can't put your trust in your wealth because there isn't any, or in your networking because don't cares about you anymore. No one cares about you anymore. They're really weird feeling. You equally don't care about anyone either. And he's not like it's mutual, you know, my field will melt when he he will only be everyone's running. Unless, unless they unless they again they unless they bank on the right things and dunya they'll know there'll be running, no will get your social

00:09:06--> 00:09:20

status doesn't exist anymore, and your wealth doesn't exist anymore. And no one cares how many degrees you have on your wall. And no one is remembering all the achievements that you did it none of this mattered, it doesn't exist, it doesn't start relevant any longer. And people aren't coming together for governance is none of that's there.

00:09:22--> 00:09:54

You only put your trust in the good deeds that you did. And if you live like that now meaning you have that yes, that's that's what I'm banking on. I know that it's the it's what I'm doing. It's what I'm offering. It's my time is my commitment is my sacrifice. It's my love for Allah subhanaw taala my willingness to be, that's what I'm building. That's what I'm actually gonna need. That is how I see my value. And again, that's even when I'm seeing that. There are caveats. I mean, there's something wrong with that too, to look at it that way to actually depend upon your deeds you're supposed to bet depend upon your deeds because your deeds will take you anyways depending upon the

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala but at least you see value not in how much money you made today but now money

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

Good deeds you did that day you understand the difference of calculation like it looks differently. You wake up in the morning you go do something and you feel valuable at the end of the day based on what you've done. Now the question is what is it that you're doing that makes you feel valuable if you're student you kind of feel valuable that day if you studied what you should have studied or you finished the assignment or you're coming close to wrapping up this this chapter, you're ready for your exam, whatever, you feel good because you did something valuable. So Muslim feels good the more good deeds they do, the more they give, the more they serve, the better they feel. And that changes

00:10:30--> 00:11:04

as you grow up, it becomes money. Money becomes like the central thing. How much money am I making? I'm making enough money am I going to work in Am I Am I getting ahead of my career and in my job? I'm not saying that you shouldn't I'm not saying that you shouldn't want to go do well in your career and well at school No, I'm saying but what do you feel is your is actually granting you graduate? What do you feel is granting you that? That That sense of trust and sense of safety? Is it the fact that you're making more money or networking better you're close you're closer to graduating your relationship or is it that I'm doing and I'm getting closer to Allah subhana wa Tada and the

00:11:04--> 00:11:27

closer you are to Allah Subhan Allah that day the better that day is judged by you and you feel that this is a day that I you know, I can I can recline upon I can I can put my back against this day because it's a was a good one, or is it not not a part because it's not a part of your equation? What I'm saying right now is for him doesn't make any sense. And Caulfield to raffia is gonna be very hard, very harsh, because it's because that's it that's all that's there there's nothing else

00:11:28--> 00:11:50

that's why Allah subhanaw taala talks about the three the three groups of people the odds are good two out of three odds are in your favor if you're one of those two of the three you'll make it the third not too much. A Saturday when a Saturday when is the first one we talked about the pioneers that we're still talking about them they're not done yet and then we'll talk about the other two and show today probably will go through them if time allows me to do so in sha Allah so recite them together.

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

I stopped at a number 19

00:11:54--> 00:12:25

Allah subhanaw taala describing what the subject won't get a co2 for him will done on Luna we acquired our cats him in the owner and what are you on the phone? Walking around them are our young, immortal servants of Jana, they have cups and glasses and pictures filled with, with with what with with running wine or with spring wine, Leo sat down and doesn't cause them headaches, what are you gonna do in order? I know they get nor do they get intoxicated by it.

00:12:27--> 00:12:31

And I stopped there. And I wanted to talk about that for a few minutes before we keep on going. So

00:12:32--> 00:13:03

understand the following use as a filter, even though like honestly, from off to a nurse, there's a little very little, like there's really not a lot of room to talk about, you know, jurisprudence, maybe in the third visit when we talk and when we go to something which Adela and a little bit of sort of Daniel Pollack, maybe there'll be a few things we'll talk about from a film perspective. But there's not a lot like it's not it's not a huge amount of fit that exists from cloth to unless most of it is value based and behavioral is very specific. So I think it's very important for us to learn that it teaches us the principles. However, here is I think it's worth just maybe pointing out that

00:13:03--> 00:13:43

Islamically what's Haram is so you understand this very clearly because I'm finding that these are, by the way, this is a you know a Givens self evident aspect with a concept in Islam. It's a maxim. It's a part of the basic value system. And I find if people are not clear on it was haram in Islam is recreational intoxication. That's what's haram. So how long Islam is recreational intoxication and intoxicating yourself recreationally for the purpose of just enjoying your time. That's why any form of alcohol is haram, the word come up is used to describe alcohol. However, the word comer means comes from the root of hamara. hamara is when you cover something or you intoxicate something.

00:13:43--> 00:14:14

That's what Hama Rocklahoma, meaning you're toxic in the brain. And that's what and then from that they took the concept of alcohol and called the color and anything that intoxicated the rain recreationally is haram. And the reason I'm using the word recreationally is because medically that's a different story. If you've how many people have underwent surgery under full anesthesia. Yeah, you were intoxicated you're a drunk beyond your ability to you're so drunk you passed out that's what intoxicated that's what anesthesia is. They the intoxicate you to the point where you can't You don't know anything anymore. But that's medical intoxication. And that's not a problem.

00:14:14--> 00:14:45

Get his medicals not recreational not happening because you want to enjoy no one. Like you know what they want to get a high. So get me a hammer and I'll slam my you might break my knees. That way they'll have to operate on me and then I'll get a nice high because it'd be easier. At least I hope no one does that because no one should. But still the concept is medical record. Medical intoxication is not the thing we talk about here. And you have to understand What intoxication is not all drugs. Not all painkillers are in talk, cause intoxication. It doesn't mean that you can go ahead today and buy you know, a couple of Percocet and start popping pills because the shakes when

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

they're not intoxicating. No, they're still haram to do but for a different reason. It's very important assignment, Lee that you do what you do for the right reason. And a lot of people get scared and they don't like getting short talking about certain things because like, Oh, if you're talking about it, maybe people take it differently. It's not my job to make you take take something

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

In one way or the other, it's my job to explain to you things the way they're supposed they actually are. So that when you do it or you don't do what you're doing with the proper comprehension, because if I don't, then I lie to you. And you'll find out later on that I was lying to you and actually causes you to you know, basically rebel

00:15:14--> 00:15:42

against the DNA maybe repelled the whole DNA not even want to be a part of anymore. So intoxication is what is fully haram when it's recreational. And that includes alcohol of any sort. It doesn't matter what the percentage is, doesn't matter, all of it and toxic even is 1%. It causes intoxication. Maybe to someone who is in Britain drinking 30% alcohol for 10 years, it doesn't really touch them. But it doesn't mean that it's not intoxicated till don't cause intoxication. So you cannot drink any any drink that has alcohol. And even if it's like something less than 1%, it's still intoxicates you

00:15:44--> 00:16:16

marijuana is an intoxicating causes intoxication. So recreational use of marijuana, whether you're smoking it or eating it is Islamically haram, the use of medical marijuana is something different medical, you need to be had that prescribed to you by a professional, and it has to have good reason for it. And in medical marijuana is usually not smoked or eaten. It is something that is used differently. And it's actually the route of usage is quite, it's quite different than then people who are using it recreationally and still there be very careful meaning make sure this is your last and final. You haven't nothing else you've used, you've kind of used everything else to control

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

pain. And usually this is used to control pain for most for most cases.

00:16:20--> 00:16:55

Other drugs that are very famous, like cocaine and heroin and methamphetamines, all these are intoxicants. And this is something there's a legal definition and it's a legal definition based on a medical definition. And Islam just takes it from there from from those who understand what it is. So Islam, says intoxicants now who's going to define intoxicants, Muslim scholars, they don't study chemicals, and they're not medicine, medical doctors, or they're not any jurists or lawyers or judges. So we leave the definition of intoxicants to the legal and medical system, you will find that there is that nicotine does not cause intoxication. So you can't say smoking is haram because

00:16:55--> 00:16:59

it's a recreational intoxication. It isn't. Nicotine doesn't cause that.

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

Smoking is haram for a different reason, because it kills you because it causes at least 15 different types of cancers with no debate around the issue at all. Big Pharma is not involved in the current conspiracy that you shouldn't be smoking. Because Smoking kills you. We see it every day, every day, that's what happens. I sit with somebody and ask them and you tell them, you have a 40 year practice back, here's your smoking, and they have a lung cancer, or some other cancer within the body, stop smoking, because it's going to kill you. If you don't, it's inevitable. It's something else may kill you first. But if you live long enough, and you smoke, smoking will get you.

00:17:30--> 00:17:58

But sometimes you're lucky and something else kills you before smoking does, but you definitely are going to be killed by smoking if you continue to do it. But it's haram for a different reason. It's important to understand like the reason things are haram, for example, other drugs like opioids, they're not haram because they're recreational intoxicants, they don't cause intoxication, they can cause drowsiness. They don't cause intoxication, it's a different thing. That's why when a police officer stands, you look on the road, they're looking for toxic, and so you look to see if you're drunk, or if you're smoking marijuana, or if you're taking other drugs, if you're on opioids to

00:17:58--> 00:18:27

different thing, you're not being intoxicated, you can be very drowsy meaning you've been taking so much, that is a different thing. It's still haram to use recreationally, because this is something like extremely harmful and it can kill you. But It's haram for a different reason. And that's why it's important for us as Muslims to understand what it is that we're using, when you're taking something and you're putting it into your body. There's a taxation that comes with that meaning is always side effects and risks for everything that you take. Nothing is benign, nothing that you take and you put into your body has it comes free, it all comes with a taxation. So when you're taking it

00:18:27--> 00:19:00

you have to take it mate based on a proper sound. medical opinion from a professional, someone who knows what they're talking about. When you take you take a drug or you take any any any any sort of any any any form of substance, and then you put into your body without knowing this is a problem because you don't know what you're doing. And you can cause yourself problems. Maybe, maybe maybe not what you think it is, it could be something different, but it's still very important. It's haram, like they got their own custom many headaches. Where are you on the phone and they're not going to be intoxicated, intoxication and Islam is held on why you may ask? Well, because one of the

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

five purposes of Islam is to

00:19:05--> 00:19:08

preserve five things is to preserve life

00:19:10--> 00:19:46

is to preserve your freedom of faith, your deen to preserve your your deen to hold on to it. It's to preserve your integrity or edit it preserve your wealth, your image so you don't lose it, and is to preserve your sobriety. You're often these are the five things that Islam is designed to preserve for you. We need to protect your DNS so you don't lose your faith. I have to protect your life so that you don't lose your life, how to protect your integrity, because that's important because without integrity, dignity without nobility without the ability to feel a value than you the life is no longer worth living. So we have to preserve your elders and have to protect your wealth so that

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

you can so you're not losing an attribute. Islam is designed to protect your mind. So we don't intoxicated, because the only thing that makes me different than any other animal running around on earth is my brain. So why would I and the reason that I am account

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

Trouble is because I have it. So that's why I'm accountable. So when I take something to purposefully remove it, then I no different than any animal at that moment, and I'm removing accountability, which isn't fair because I may do something.

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

Islamically if you do something when you're drunk, what what happens?

00:20:19--> 00:20:49

You kill someone when you're drunk. What happens? No one cares. I don't care that you're drunk, killed them. I don't remember, I don't care. You're intoxicated yourself. That's your problem. Why would you do that? Why would you do take something that would you remove your ability to make sound judgment, the only reason you're a law event that you're in is because you can make sound judgment. So you take something and you remove your ability to make sound judgment, that you do something, you can't say, well, it's not my fault. It's 100% Your fault. And let's obviously someone slipped you something and then you didn't, you didn't know. But if you're doing it on purpose, it's your fault.

00:20:49--> 00:21:24

It's very important to understand things Islamically liable for their own and what I use, even in Jannah, Allah subhanaw taala gives you the pleasure, you want the high, you get the high, but you don't get the intoxication, you can find a lot of highs in life, it doesn't have to be, you don't have to not be sober, you can totally be sober and find those highs and actually, that's how you enjoy life. You don't have to be intoxicated to feel the feel the feelings that you want to feel, actually, they're not really real when you're feeling them, due to a buzz of intoxication. They're not real. They are not real and they don't last and and the moment you you experienced it, you start

00:21:24--> 00:21:57

bank, you start wanting more of it. Whatever you use the first time it's not enough, you need more of it next time, a little bit more of it next time and more of that, like people get addicted. That's what people get addicted to things that you don't really even physiologically get addicted to. Because psychologically you're addicted to feeling a certain way you want to feel it, they will take something and nothing's enough anymore. On the other hand, if you learn to actually find those highs in life without being intoxicated, that's that's really living that's being alive. And that's really what we're supposed to do as muslims. We just wanted to have that. Because I and whoever

00:21:58--> 00:22:33

thought that I said I this is what I was told like, a few years ago, I was told I was called by someone is it true that you gave a fatwa that it's okay to smoke marijuana after Isha? That was my first Well apparently, I allowed I allowed smoking pot after just after Aisha not before you can pray in Asia, then you can go ahead and you can just you know, run joint after the other until you have Nagar knocked out until the dojo. I don't know where that came from. And so I'm trying to be very clear that no is not highlighted for you to smoke pot and anytime now after a show now before it and it doesn't matter what the time of the day. It is how long to do such a thing. And it's equal

00:22:33--> 00:23:05

to drinking alcohol. And you can do you can argue with me while laying out their differences. We either differences medically or differences Islamically there aren't. Medically there's law differences Islamically there aren't. It's recreational intoxication. I don't care about the rest of it. Yes, we can. I can sit and do research to show you the research and show you how these substances cause all these other physical or physiological diseases in the liver and other parts of your body and psychological mental illness. At least that's fine. But at the end of the day, without all that research, this is what Allah subhanaw taala said, as a Muslim at some point. At some point,

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

you're supposed to reach a level where he said that I'm good. Yes, I will look into the research so I can help others. But for me, he said it's so I'm good. That's what Allah subhanaw taala said we shouldn't do it. I'm not going to do it anymore. That's just very important, and I thought it was worth maybe pointing us all starting at number 20 Inshallah, we'll be learning in a shape on your body

so he continues to pound out to describe what is it that they get in Geneva to affect you hurtin and fruit in my room from all that they want to choose from? Whatever you choose whatever you want, whenever you hope for the variety, you will be hoping in front of them a sub you're going to sell behind and they'll choose from the fruit and the food that they eat for

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

pleasure from wherever they want without me at my stone and the meat of birds, which from of which they want or desire is Xiao Hua Hoon is something that you desire and is used usually to describe lust, but it can be used almost for any type of desire it anything netsuke attached to here so it has desires that wants certain things, we're not going to place him in a stone, and he uses that phrase to pile and I think you'll be eating Jonnie fruits and the meat of birds that which you which you desire, because it's based on your desire on the day of judgment and Donia you don't eat just based on your desire that's not really based on what you eat based on whether it's halal or haram.

00:25:41--> 00:26:15

That is what you eat based on you make sure that what you bring to your house before it's something that you enjoy eating, you make sure that it's halal. That's the first thing highlight and I'm not just talking about like ingredients on the side of the packet. I'm talking about that the wealth that you used to buy this what with was Haida you made their money from source and you bought it from a place that sells in a halal way that was not being stolen or ripped off? You're buying this is this is what you should we should be worried about. So it's not based on just what I desire. It's based on the fact that I'm looking to buy that which is hello which will save me without imitating

00:26:15--> 00:26:57

but in the Janna know it's your stone whatever you want. What do you desire? What do you desire that is what's going to be put in front of you to choose from? Well hold on aim. And spouses or partners of great beauty of a beautiful eyes can fairly Lulu in McNew, like hidden pearls, or pearls that are that are untouched, meaning you're disposes I explain explain this similarly, in sort of Rockman that the whole name disposes of gender, this disposes of beauty and gender are, though are exclusive for their for their partners, they are not. And that was important, because that's, that's the full joy of intimacy comes from exclusivity. That's where it comes from. Knowing that the person is

00:26:57--> 00:27:36

exclusively, you're exclusive for them and opposite. And that's important, that's very important and having full degrees of intimacy. And that's what human beings want, so that they judgment, your spouse is like, look, look in Maknoon, the hidden or closed upon pearls, meaning it's, no one has access to your spouse before neither, neither neither have they had access to you and Jen is yours is something that is very exclusive to you. And that's where you find a lot of joy. And it's something beautiful. And that's why in dunya, we struggle with this a little bit. And we find it hard sometimes to, to accept certain things. And because we do a part of our into our love for

00:27:36--> 00:28:12

intimacy, our need for intimacy comes from wanting the person to be exclusive, and even caring only about us and we care only or the majority of the care comes to you and you and you offer them the majority of your care. What really happens in life after you get married sometimes is that you start getting lazy, you start taking things for granted and the opposite. 90, you're you're better off or your significant other doesn't doesn't show you what you feel, you need to be sure that you do the same. And that kind of kills off what I need, what affection and what intimacy actually is still left, just based on the fact that you stop, you just stop remembering, or you forget that the person

00:28:12--> 00:28:43

or funny of you just like you need to feel special, they need to feel the same way. And that's an effort that needs to be put in. And that's what Allah subhanaw taala is pointing out here that in terms of so you go to Janna you'll be, you'll be comfortable. If you look at the cybercoders Serbia, when are you gonna they're gonna be they're gonna be comfortable. They're going to drink from wherever they want to eat whatever they want, and have spouses that are specifically and exclusively for them. And this is the full package. This is all the type of this is this is all pleasure. This is the leisure in the pleasure that we look for. But then supplements how to add one more piece

00:28:43--> 00:29:20

here. He says just be my academy, I'm alone. This is really interesting. He said this is reward based on what they did before. Just as reward be Americana, we I'm alone and equal or based on Bhima based on market what they used to do before Macedonia, Moldova did in the past. So when we think about it, is it really based on? I mean, are we doing things in dunya right now that is deserving of all that. That's the question that we have to ask each other. So the answer really to that is, you know, pretty simple. No, I mean, what really? Yes, yes, we are obeying Allah subhanaw taala but we can say that, you know, somehow we've deserved based on that to be treated in a certain way that we

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

deserved full,

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

full pleasure

00:29:24--> 00:29:54

immortally because of a few good deeds, we didn't dunya but that's what He tells us to Pinilla. You know why? Because if he didn't tell you that and he kept on reminding me by the way, you deserve none of this. You don't feel too good. Like you may eat it and you may eat and drink enjoy your struggle you're like you're being reminded constantly you didn't do anything to deserve this. That's not fun. That's not there's no pleasure in that that's why people you know the in this happens in your life. If someone if you make if you're with your spouse or with someone that you care about, and always reminding you that you didn't really work hard enough for this and you're not really

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

pulling your weight here and even though you're having a good life, the deep down inside psychologically you're not happy. You're not happy you'd rather not

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

With this person who reminds you that you didn't really do anything, or you're not doing enough, even though they're providing a lot of wealth for you to enjoy, you'd rather live in a poor position where you're at least you're valued for what you do like that's important to people. So Allah subhanho wa Taala to make sure that the pleasure is full on the day judgment, He will tell you that this is based on what you did you deserve this. Even though somewhere deep inside you know, you didn't but you'll tell you you did or you totally deserve this so that psychologically you're in pleasure as well. Or even Yanni mentally, you're happy because if you be reminded agenda by the way,

00:30:32--> 00:31:03

then you know, then we're always going to feel a little bit know Allah says, that will continue to remind you this is based on what you did. You deserve this. You worked hard, and this is what you get for it. Allah subhanaw taala not only wants you to eat and drink and have pleasure, he wants you to psychologically believe that you deserve this and you can fully enjoy it. Like you're not being reminded that somehow you didn't do enough No, no you did it. Some part of you knows Allah Subhan Allah knows the story. Yeah, I didn't do too much. But Allah subhanaw taala every time Yeah. Oh, no, this is what you deserve. This is for more You totally deserve to ask for more. Just be Maka and we

00:31:03--> 00:31:15

are Manu beautiful. That's why the first chapter it kind of hones in on that a little bit more, let us know Nephi how they don't hear in Jannah. Number one, what theme, they don't hear things that bother them and they don't hear sin.

00:31:17--> 00:31:51

He does not listen, if Mr is sin, that FEMA is different. Their theme is telling someone or mining someone ever said that they did. So in general, you don't hear things that you don't want to hear that you're not saying they're listening just to some fat guy, you know, yellow you about something, you don't have to hear me in general, you don't ever see me again, you can completely mute me for forever and ever. Because you don't have to even know who agenda that you have someone talking about something you don't care about a theme. You never have to hear about any mistakes you ever made in the past, ever, you never have to be reminded of shortcomings that you ever had, or huge problems

00:31:51--> 00:32:25

that you ran into. Even even public speaking, none of that. Even your ears are going to be protected so that you don't hear except the things that make you happy, except the things that make you feel good about yourself. So you won't hear things that you're not interested in that make you bored and put you to sleep. So you don't have to attend to hook up or attend Jonnie Allapattah, that's an investor, you don't have to be reminded of things that make you feel bad about yourself, remind you of a previous supper mistake that you made, you know, none of that, we're going to remove that because in order for your pleasure to be full, we also have to take care of what you believe about

00:32:25--> 00:32:44

yourself and what you're hearing around you. Because you can eat and drink and have spouses be reminded constantly of how you know how you didn't deserve this and the mistakes that you made. Or you have an annoying neighbor agenda who stands there and talks to you about the weather every time you see them and goes on and on about the stock market they don't care about I'm just somebody to

00:32:46--> 00:33:11

enjoy is actual is is real, and it is meaningful to you and it goes on forever. So Allah subhanaw was pointing out that last piece, the psychological joy and pleasure that he doesn't actually point out in in the second one doesn't mean they don't have it doesn't mean that you don't have it. No, it just means that Allah either take extra care of his side of the coin and making sure that even the psychological aspect of this is going to be fully taken care of so you don't have to worry about anything.

00:33:14--> 00:33:17

Because the number one spoiler of pleasure is what

00:33:21--> 00:33:22

long story where

00:33:23--> 00:33:36

the long story is narrated by Mr. 90, the loved one who would be asked what's the strongest thing and he goes on this like this sequence and he says he says I can't remember the details but I can tell you a little bit of

someone say when he's about when there's not that strong. And we can be beaten by I think he uses mountains

00:33:53--> 00:34:34

the mountains are strong either because motors can be beaten by by fire can be burnt and fire is not that strong because the fire can be beaten by water. Well that's strong because animals keep going down this long continuation of what's the strongest thing and then it comes to the point where and then the strongest thing then the human being becomes stronger than one thing that but but sleep is stronger than the human being and then hum is strong with asleep and he ends with that. Um is is when you are worried beyond worry when you when you're in under severe stress before we come means in his in his continuum I'm sorry I don't remember the full story properly because I've been thought

very good. So he talks about his hyperbole me, he says was hyperbole. I mean, emails, hyperbole, I mean, the people have the right or the blessed ones mouse How will you mean and what do you know? Or what are the people of the right or the or the blessing people and this is just the Arabic figure of speech or or wait are the linguistic complex? That means that is trying to get you intrigued that are trying to say what a beautiful thing they are and you may not even know about them or maybe we can't really explain to you what they are even if you use words there is no language that can actually break down for you exactly what it is they're going to be in on the day of judgment and

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

what joy they're going to be finding out that day. But the Quran will make an attempt to try and explain to you what you may find out yeah and on the day of judgment was heavily Amin emails herbal Yameen p siddurim. Loading repelled from load, overly meme dude

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

Sivir is the low tree mahalo that has its

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

thorns taken off. And the low tree, the tree that is known that smells beautiful as a beautiful scent. But with this beautiful scent comes thorns. So if you kind of walk under it or you don't we have low treason in Syria. And if you walk under it, then the thorns walk are actually quite quite bothersome, whether you're trying to take the flower or even just walking on the ground because they can get it they stick out. So with everything good, and this is to me more, more or less Allah subhanaw taala, reminding them most of the Muslim of the following that agenda will leave the beautiful soften, remove the harm, we just remove the harm, just pluck them out, when after one

00:40:38--> 00:41:07

gender, you just pluck out the harm. So you have a low tree, the oak tree smells amazing. But as storage, before we got rid of the thorns, if those won't be there anymore, that one piece of harm. The one thing that was annoying, the one thing that was causing you some pain or some difficulty that's going to be removed, because you don't need it anymore. Because you already experienced life with the thorns. You've already been allied with thorns, you know what it's like, understand that life is not fully comfortable. You understand the thorns, you went through a full experience of thorns, and you actually persevered. And you were very grateful anyways, and you made it to the

00:41:07--> 00:41:28

other side. So there's no point to putting you through another life of thorns. So just remove that for you. Does that mean that's what mode mean? mode means it meaning deformed? If that's even a word that just move the throne? Well, I'll call him numbered. Numbered is mean number that mean they fall in one on top of the other. So that layered and Windows

is out of

00:41:31--> 00:41:32


00:41:33--> 00:41:39

Yes, there's banana trees. And that was a big deal for the Arabs because it was very, it's not easy to find bananas and Arabia.

00:41:41--> 00:41:51

Actually, I'll tell you this funny story. So you don't find basil's in Arabia, nor do you find them many in the northern part like in Syria and Jordan doesn't the climate doesn't allow it to grow.

00:41:52--> 00:41:54

So I've always loved bananas. So

00:41:56--> 00:42:29

you can laugh I enjoyed. It's my one of my favorite fruits. Actually, I liked it because I remember my chef told me that this is a lesson I learned maybe seven that Imam Malik Abdullah Juan Imam Malik, even as the head of the Maliki madhhab was known to be a very chic and gentleman, he's very chic, you get this guy dressed? Well, really well, to the point where people you know, we're always amazed by how well he looked all the time. And whenever he was asked, he didn't really own a lot of wealth and nobody cared about that. But he's like, I was given the Quran and the Hadith and the feel and the feeling of this Dean, and it's out of respect for it. And he can't and he cared about how he

00:42:29--> 00:43:02

looked and what he dressed that he liked certain things. And he you know, you're certain, and he loves bananas. This was his favorite fruit. And it's actually in the books that he This was his favorite fruit. So I thought that was interesting and it became a part of my so I go to Syria live there, and they don't come very come by any cheap, they were really expensive, like in comparison to every other fruit because I can I can close my eyes and I can draw you a picture of where I used to live in the village. There's like 17 different fruits just around my house. Well like 70 I'm not throwing the number actually counted them with one of my friends when they it's funny because when

00:43:02--> 00:43:32

he did that, I was the first time I ever did it. And I never realized to that moment how blessed I was when I was living there. Like I loved it I loved the place and I never wanted to leave I never really thought about the fact that literally between there's 17 different proofs just if I walk open the door and just take a stroll around my house in the house of my uncle's the 700,000 foot like I used to do this everyday in may wake up morning just walk around and eat my way through there and then go have diarrhea for the rest of the day but that but that's what I did. And it was it was very enjoyable. Go from it from from apples to pears to

00:43:34--> 00:43:41

grapes to different types of apricots and different types of plums and different types of figs and different types of

00:43:42--> 00:44:14

berries. Whether it's a cherries or actual different hours of Pacific blueberries or blackberries, it was just a strawberry you just walk around and then of course pomegranates oh the pomegranates the pomegranates or something in Syria where people will be killed for them. Yes you could lose your life for a watermelon or a pomegranate two things you don't steal in Syria ever if you're caught then the other person has a license to shoot and no one will feel bad like if they shoot you You're stealing but one of those two things I got he was stealing a bottle of wine Oh then well then we're sorry we apologize just give us the corpse we should have raised and better than that. These are

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

things you don't steal you can be given to you that you don't steal them ever because they're very just very valuable and my uncle used to have like one of these pomegranate trees that were actually sweet. So he used to tell us right before at the beginning of the of the year just when the nubs come out he would count them say all right, this family gets these three and this only get these three and I will distribute them and we'll law here if I walk out the way that is not there. And he can so one day this happened he woke up in the morning and looked at the bottom grant cheat and one of them weren't wasn't there right? I was given a pomegranate by a friend the day before Wallahi by

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

a friend I swear I did not go there or touch any of it and it was in the rest of it the remnants were on the counter and basically my uncle came and the door and the window was open and he could see through the window the remnants on the on the on the snake because I'm a slob and put them away and he started yelling he's he was

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

Never, I'm not I'm going to do this to you. And I'm going to do that to you. And I swear it, I'm yelling from the other side telling him Allah He was it was a gift, because you're Allah, it's gonna give. And he comes around the house to look to hunt me down how to run out and have to close the door and they stay inside for hours. And this is not a joke, this actually Oh, things go, you can laugh as much as you'd like. But that's actually is very valuable. So when I look about it, and I said, look, look at it, like there's a lot of blessing just living in a part of the world where there's a lot to eat. And I love bananas. Bananas are very expensive to the point that if I bought

00:45:25--> 00:45:53

one people would talk about and people would know, like, the guy who sold it to me would pick up the phone and say food, I just bought like a kilo of bananas, here's how much expenses I didn't we will talk to each other. And then it comes to my dad that we're buying bananas, and then that's, you know, hey, hey, are you buying bananas, people don't have enough to eat. So we wouldn't buy them just to be very valuable. So a lot of the things in the Quran that like a lot of the fruit that you find the Quran are talked about, because they had a lot of value to the people, it doesn't mean that the only fruit that you going to have in general, it just means that the people who were reading the

00:45:53--> 00:46:27

Quran understood if the Quran came and talked to the Arabs about fruit they'd never heard of, then it wouldn't really do much for them. So people use Oh, the Quran only talks, it talks about camels because yes, it talks about camels, because that's what Arabs had. That doesn't. There's nothing weird about that. There's nothing wrong about that the Quran czar gonna come and talk about some animal the Arabs had never heard of, because that's not this Quran was speaking to them initially. And then you do something that is a very simple mental exercise called extrapolation or drawing analogies. The human brain is designed to do that. So if he talks about camels, you get the idea

00:46:27--> 00:46:55

that anything you ride that has transportation also applies. And then he talks about a couple of different types of fruit, then you understand that he's probably talking about fruit and general that people enjoy. And you don't have to say, well, the quiet No, no, it's not. It's not specifying one thing. It's talking about what people enjoyed so that you understand what it is that you enjoy, you will find that in Jannah as well. Does that make sense? It's very important to kind of remind yourself of that, as you go through the Quran. So he's talking here about the dream. It's not the only tree, there will be other trees. If there's a tree that you enjoy the center of, you'll find it

00:46:55--> 00:47:18

in Jannah as well. Also, the thorn is not a problem. But that's the tree that the Arabs found to be of extreme beauty and extreme beauty and a great center. The aroma was amazing. But at thorns, it will be dethroned. On the Day of Judgment. Well thought the Hanged Man Lord, meaning layered banana trees. It's not one or two, you get the whole but as much as as much as you like, Okay? Well, they'll let them do it and extended shade.

00:47:20--> 00:47:28

Shade is a beautiful thing. When the sun above you is burning your your skull, well then let them do it. Meaning you'll be in a place where it's cool.

00:47:30--> 00:48:04

Where you're not running to find a spot to protect yourself from something harming you. It's extended shavings everywhere you walk, and you're not scared, you're not running away from a sun, and you're not trying to find a place for refuge. It's extended every day that you you're living, you're living in a place where it's cool, and it's easy for you to exist. While I'm out in the scoop and water that is poured water that is pouring, my scooping is pouring. It's just it's flooding through. Again, for Arabs who lived in the desert, that was a really beautiful thing to think about where there's abundance of water, maybe living around the Great Lakes of Ontario, it doesn't make

00:48:04--> 00:48:36

too much sense to you. Maybe in 100 years when the water all dries up and we're fighting over it, maybe this idea will become important again, maybe this will become very important 200 years from now when you look back at it and they say Oh mama in my school that would be nice, wouldn't it? If we could just get as much water as you wanted. And this comes out basically basically you know, we were not doing too well and preserving our own environment. But it was what all this is saying is that you're fine what you want around you to get a model you smell what you what you like, what you eat what you like, and we're literally meme dude and you're comfortable within your surrounding

00:48:36--> 00:49:00

mountain myschool when you drink what you want to drink, it's all there for you you're not missing anything. You're not to go looking for anything you don't have to go and try and make something available to yourself it's already been made available to you. Well thank you I think cathedra and many fruits learn up to it and they're not being harvested before you can get to them what am Noah and they're not forbidden and this is here isn't really to cool point right what caused them to leave Jana initially.

00:49:01--> 00:49:02


00:49:03--> 00:49:06

The story going back and reason that they walked out.

00:49:07--> 00:49:42

I don't mean how I had to learn a lesson told you not to touch that. You had everything in front of you just don't touch that. Why you have no self control, no self discipline at all. You have no ability to listen to what's being said I just don't touch that just don't need it. You didn't listen. In Jana, nothing is memoir. Now it's not gonna happen again. Not gonna be told everything is open but not that door. Or not yet or not that food or not. They know everything. There is a meal in dunya. A lot of that is still there I just talked about in a moment to go. There's a lot of things and some of them are newer. There's a lot of things you can take and eat, but you can't take certain

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

things to eat. It is haram, a lot of things to drink, but there's one of the things menorah You're not You're forbidden, You're forbidden to drink it. So in Donia you show self discipline and self regulation and self control by not going after that which is permitted to the enjoyment in Jannah

00:50:00--> 00:50:33

nothing's forbidden. Just enjoy but and don't just learn certain things are forbidden. And if you really understand things properly, you'll understand that they're forbidden for your own sake. Like it's for you. It's not because Allah subhanaw taala enjoys controlling you. It's because it's for it's for your own benefit for own sake and dunya you're not being forbidden from anything because it is just a it's a meaningless test. No, you're being forbidden because this will ruin you. It will ruin you. It will ruin the society societies will be ruined if everyone did if everyone did not forbid themselves from using it. That's why I need this like this is so important to understand. Now

00:50:33--> 00:50:38

not to attend to not being taken away from you well, mm no I know are you be told that they're forbidden?

00:50:39--> 00:50:56

Well, photos in Marfa and furniture that is held high so you have a beautiful view of my flat means you have a view. And what I didn't before means if you're sitting down then you can heal you can barely see what's you know, what's a metaphor, I mean, you have a great view you can see whatever you want to hire you want to go the higher you can go the more you can see it's a beautiful thing.

00:50:57--> 00:51:32

In Chanel Hoonah insha, Allah espouses Allah subhanaw taala will create them in the best form of creation, but your unknown account on urban Traba and they will be spouses that are exclusive for you. They've never had a spouse before you are Oban. They're very loving I Traba the same age. So your spouse's are going to be are going to be be created by Allah subhanaw taala in the best form of creation, and they're going to be exclusive for you and they will be loving and they'll be of the same age. These are all reasons for someone to enjoy the intimacy with the other person. But y'all know who called on the Odoban Antara Rios Hi Binyamin

00:51:33--> 00:52:14

for the people of the of the right. And then he says 32 minutes are willing, similarly to what we talked about last week, a group a percentage percentage of the early nations, but last time when he talked about the pioneers, he said are the ones who go ahead or ahead of everyone he said the two minute are willing he said a percentage of the early nations and he said well kalido middle askeleen In a small percentage of the later nations percent these not number number is different because numbers can be more but the percentage is smaller, right? You can have more people end up being from them but they're just smaller percentage of the of the number of people who actually were there so

00:52:14--> 00:52:29

the percentage is smaller. Here he says total a two minute Oberlin percentage of the early nations were 33 and a similar percentage from the later nations. So here they're pretty much the same. Here the percentage is the same but the early group know the percentage goes down a bit

00:52:30--> 00:52:59

it really just goes to La unfortunately the percentage of people who will make it to the highest ranks aren't as high in the later nations why because the later nations have more they achieve more it's kind of weird right? Like Well, are you being punished for achieving more No no no not being punished for achieving more God no, that says definitely not what's happening here. happening is because you're getting you're getting more but you're just not You're not being as grateful. You see. This is what the Sahaba said this is really interesting quote that I'm going to give you from

00:53:02--> 00:53:17

some say it was even miss owed some say it was solid. Some say was up there might have been some say it was a blob, and I'm gonna say it was Omar, we don't know for sure because it was the rage from different people. I tend to believe all of them said this in different wordings and it just came to us as if it was, it was a mistake. I think all of them said this is what they said.

00:53:20--> 00:53:45

Ah Na Ma rasool Allah He said Allah Allah him a Yama sobre la Savarna don't metallic rasool Allah He said Allah, Allah wa salam, a year Musa, Masha Columna we live with the Prophet Allah, you saw those in the days of difficulty, and we were perseverant or totally perseverance. And then after the Prophet alayhi salatu salam came the days of ease, and we weren't as grateful as we should have been.

00:53:46--> 00:54:19

And they would miss the days. Being with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when they were tying rocks on their stomachs, they were so hungry, you would miss them. Like, I wish I can go back to that. I was gonna go back to that, but you were hungry and you were poor. Yeah, I know. I know. But, but it was just more pure. I was more pure as a person. I knew that I all I had to do was just be being content to be happy. Be accepting that Allah is what Allah subhanaw taala gave me show perseverance. Show it to Allah could show whatever. And I'm good. And I did. We did it. We totally did. We did not object and weren't upset. We didn't fight it. We didn't say why is it like we were totally fine with

00:54:19--> 00:54:27

it. And then later Allah is ready to open dunya for us. So we took it and we haven't been that grateful. It become very comfortable. We're using a lot for it for ourselves. It's a little bit selfish. And that's also how about

00:54:29--> 00:54:38

it people were saying this or people died in left nothing. Like there was no inheritance. They didn't own anything. You'd have people who go to their homes, and there's maybe like, maybe two

00:54:41--> 00:55:00

two pieces of two cushions on the ground and maybe one one pillow and a couple of cups like there's nothing like they don't have they have the house made of one room or something. Like they didn't really build great mansions and they sat and sat there and cried about how they know they had simple but they had a little bit more. That's all a little bit more and then they felt guilty. We're using a lot of

00:55:00--> 00:55:30

But I'm not asking you to do that my goal here is not to make your hate the only wealth and not to no actually want people to go out there and become very wealthy as a Muslim you're obligated almost to go there and be as wealthy as you possibly can be make all the money not a little bit make all the money can you do that make all of the money and then take it and then use it for what it's supposed to be used for? Just take it and use it the right way. Make a lot of money not so that you can you know, buy your your personal jet and buy an island somewhere. So you know, just make the money so they could take it and you can serve those you understand that massage and sit down and

00:55:30--> 00:56:03

argue about budgets of 1500. And whatever dollars. It's pathetic, pathetic massages, budgets are pathetic. Well, law, he said it's it doesn't board members. They're arguing about 10,000 15,000 to run a program or to pay a teacher to Allah. Yeah, aim is something horrible. Yeah, that'd be we have to sit down and wait, I have to waste time I have to tell someone who wants to do something great. Oh, it's $2,000 Give me a minute tactical talk to a bunch of people. Because we're all poor. Because we don't have wealth. Because we don't want the wealth that we have. We don't pump it into the right places, or we don't put it in the right hands. We're not using it for the right for the right

00:56:03--> 00:56:34

reasons. So go out there and become wealthy become really, really wealthy start businesses and make a lot of money and then take a lot of that money and pump it into where it needs to go. Make sure that people who are underprivileged or taking care of that massage aid are being are being service and that people who need education and people who need mental health, or people who need the support whatever it is that they're getting what they need. That's the beauty of it's not about you can go farther, like you can actually go far you can you can be of a subroutine if you're given wealth, and you use it right. The problem is if you're given that wealth and you don't use it right, then yeah,

00:56:34--> 00:57:08

you kind of lose that status of being the high because you're not giving anything you're not really accountable for not being given anything. If you're not given opportunity. You're not accountable for not being given opportunity. I can't hold you accountable that you didn't get the opportunity to be wealthy. But if you persevered when things were horrible, you'll make it your milkman to the highest of the highest of statuses in Nemo for sabe Runa Angela home, Maria haisa, the perseverance will be given their award on the judgment tax free. There's no There's no face up, they don't come they're not they're not even step they don't understand and be questioned about anything. Everyone,

00:57:08--> 00:57:44

each and every one of us will stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and have to answer and to go through our book is to answer for everything. Explain the time that we wasted or we spent despair to explain our youth specifically, the days where we you know, our backs and joints and mind was was still working on it, explain where we got our money from where he put it and explain what we were taught and what we did with that. Explain our lives our lives. Some people in the judgment know it's like Express you know, the you know, if you go to a airport, you're standing there in line, you're completely depressing. There's some some guy just walks by. It's the worst, Raisa? Yeah, he's a VIP

00:57:44--> 00:58:05

or something. I said, your milk damages. VIP. He just walked by everybody. Why food I'm sorry. This was someone who's perseverance. This is someone who was starving, was sick, was tired, who was under a lot of stress, who went through a lot of difficulty. And he totally persevered. He didn't complain, then object to God, they didn't lose their faith, their content. Now, I can tell you that you don't want that.

00:58:07--> 00:58:09

I can tell you right now, you don't want it.

00:58:10--> 00:58:47

Target and you don't want it. None of us want that. Now there was one do I'll take that? No, no one's gonna take that. Now give me give me the poverty and the disease and the difficulty. So no, maybe give it to this other guy. Give me Give me the one here, the better. Yeah, but the problem is now you're given more and you're expected to do more, you're expected to do much more now. And why people don't. People become mediocre, right can mediocre suddenly they're not getting it at all. Because they have so much. When you have so much you have so much to lose, right? And you have nothing, nothing to lose. So you just you persevere and you're fine. But sometimes people hold on to

00:58:47--> 00:59:16

what they've gotten because they don't want to want to lose it. And that's what the prophet Allah says and tells us you need it you need to do a go make money become rich, and then take that and pump it into where it needs to go. And you will be of the first group if you didn't like the second group description today. I like the second group too. I think they're great. I hope that Allah subhanaw taala makes us amongst the first group and if somehow I don't do my job well hopefully we find our way to the second group. I just realized this title six will end here in sha Allah will continue with an eye to eye next week we'll talk about the third group that we hope not to be I'm

00:59:16--> 00:59:44

I'm honestly, this is something I do all the time. I don't I don't even do it. Like consciously. It's like a subconscious thing. Like I always avoid I don't want to read those verses. You know what I mean? Like the verses coming in next week, like they're a part of me, I'm trying to, like postpone it as much as possible. So they don't want to read it was how was Gmail emails published him on a piece of me is scared to listen to them. But Allah He is just like, if I keep on I give this like, way more I could talk to the way where I told you stories, maybe like because I didn't want to go to that piece of insert telling the story. It was scary. It's hard, because knowing that that's a

00:59:44--> 01:00:00

possibility that I could easily slip up and end up within that third group over there is something that should scare you. And it should motivate you to be a better person, so that you're not in Charlottesville, and with that, so buckle up. Shinola Illa. Atlantis Tocqueville to Lake wa sallahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad Nasir has been forgiven.

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

me I didn't pay attention to the time wall
