Hey, welcome to learn. I'm glad I mean, almost somebody was telling him about it. And I said, you know, have you been hammered early, he also had me as Remainer bad.

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

We stopped I am number 11.

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

Last week and

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

today inshallah we will continue from ID number troll.

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

Quick reminder now is the beginning

00:00:20--> 00:00:26

of a cluster of suitors that talk about the concept of PA or obedience or is Islam

00:00:27--> 00:00:40

submission to Allah subhanaw taala, that looks, these students look at the concept from a number of different angles, which enriches the idea and the issue itself, sort of being the longest shooter within this cluster from zero.

00:00:42--> 00:01:15

All the way down, to sort of zoom out, looks at it from from a very unique perspective, talks about submitting to Allah subhanaw taala. And the most difficult situations when submitting to Allah or obeying Allah is hard, it's very hard, whether because of external effects or external elements or because of internal elements within the within the ruling itself. Sometimes the command itself, it's hard, and sometimes you're submitting to a command in a very difficult situation. Either way, it's not comfortable for you to follow the way of Allah subhanho wa taala, which is fine. I mean, the Quran is not,

00:01:16--> 00:01:34

does not say that that's not the case. This is the case, however, you are still required, we're still all required to submit to Allah Subhan to obey Allah subhana wa Dardanus commands, and looks at a number of different situations. And we've covered a few in the first page and a half. And now we're in the story that speaks

00:01:35--> 00:02:14

of the most, one of the most difficult situations of Sahaba ever had to be in the stories in the sewers called, based on that structure, the story of the Battle of the Trench or the Battle of the of the, or the groups or the Legions or the alliances or the alliances meaning the number of for the first time in history, the Arabs did something together for once and they weren't, wasn't trivial wasn't based on we were a part of one tribe, not all the different tribes came together to actually serve a 91 purpose, a common purpose and a common goal. And that was kind of unprecedented within within Arabian history, that they would do such a thing. And the goal was unfortunately was to

00:02:14--> 00:02:20

destroy the the Muslim nation that the Prophet SAW as demonstrated within within yesterday within Medina.

00:02:22--> 00:02:29

The story begins by Allah subhanaw taala asking, telling Curonian with Allah, Allah will remind yourselves or recall the blessing of Allah.

00:02:31--> 00:03:10

When soldiers came your way from selling it to him, but he handled, you know, the lump turnover, and we sent upon them wind and soldiers and creations that served us that you did not see what kind of Allah who be marked dama Luna bossley Allah you did not see what Allah subhanaw taala sent towards to your enemy and took them away and caused them to retreat and leave however Allah subhanaw taala saw what it is that you did on that day, are you seeing the I was you know, the lamp Tara or you didn't see the crew unit see, when Allah subhanaw has all the the betrayal and the hatred and the and the fear and the doubt that entered the hearts of that which caused them to utter you didn't see

00:03:10--> 00:03:15

that. However, Allah subhanaw taala saw exactly what you did and how you behaved. And

00:03:17--> 00:03:59

it goes on to to give us a very intense snapshot of what happened the moment the Muslims were confronted with this 10,000 populated army is Joe uchumi. info click them. I mean, as Phil, I mean, come on, they came to you from northern tribes and from southern tribes, or from the north of Medina or the south of Medina. Depending on how you want to understand the the area with sounds like sea level far and when your eyesight went wild. And that is a figure of speech to extreme fear that Z and that's what happens when you were very nervous. Well, Bella till Kulu will 100 Euro, and you could feel your throat pumping your heart pumping in your throat. You were so you were so fearful at

00:03:59--> 00:04:05

the moment. Whatever Nuna Biller, you're Valona. And then you all had assumptions about

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

your assumptions

00:04:08--> 00:04:44

about the AI that doesn't talk about what the assumptions are just keeps it open your assumptions. Most of them were very good assumptions. We're not held accountable for for the thoughts that come across our minds. We're accountable for what we do regarding those thoughts. And it's an important distinction within this land that we have to all be very aware of. If you have a bad thought, you're not going to be punished because of that bad thought. Now only those who are on a very high level of piety and Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala will will hold themselves accountable based on their own thoughts, meaning they will start to say to themselves or they will do the view it's as this My mind

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

is an open

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

book to Allah subhanaw taala. So if he sees that thought, I feel ashamed of it. So they start working on even changing their thoughts, but that's a very high level of piety. If you've never achieved that in life, you're not held accountable for it because you're not held accountable for thoughts. You're gonna be judged based on it. You

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

You're gonna be rewarded or punished based on your thoughts, you will be held accountable for what you do based on them. And that's what the AI talks about. We have a new novella when when you guys were scared, it was clear in your eyes, it was clear in your hearts, and your assumptions started to your thoughts. were wondering about assumptions, who now like if that moment will be totally mean, the believers were put to the test, they were put to the true test was 00, Alan Shalida. And they were shaking, an extreme and vigorous and violent shake, their faith was put to a test and they were shocked. Let's see what's going to happen. Right. And that's what so that's what the story of the

00:05:38--> 00:06:11

last app talks about. Are you capable of submitting to Allah subhanaw taala? Following the commands obeying Allah subhanaw taala, even when the situation is that level of is that extreme? You're so scared, it's normal for you to be very scared. It's normal for you to be so scared that you have bad assumptions about things that you think about Allah subhanaw taala maybe in a negative way comes a bad thought jumps into your mind ship and throws it into your knifes gives it to you? And you're like, No, no, that's not that. I can't think like that. But that's how scared you are. That's how in doubt you are. That's how doubtful and that's how difficult the situation is. But then what do you

00:06:11--> 00:06:27

do about it? Here's what's going to make the difference. The distinction in the differentiation of people on that day will be based on what they do on their behaviors, not just about the thoughts, the thoughts, if you look at the idle the noon is generalized everyone, right all them when they come to me with all the movements were

00:06:29--> 00:06:30

put to the test.

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

What you

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

This is where we stopped started, we read up to number 12. Last time we didn't Yes, up to 12 Sorry, we have yet because I remember talking about this last time with your calling when you have your own Latina people who will be in Milan. And then when the hypocrites and those who have diseases in their heart what they said was my ally then Allahu Allah sue in law hoorah. Oh, the only thing that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, and His Prophet has promised us is delusions, the only promised us delusions, what they promised is all a lie, literally, we thought something good was going to come from him, but nothing good came from it, we were told that you were going to find victory, eventually we're

00:07:06--> 00:07:42

going to find prosperity you will become you will become strong and, and Yanni, and you will become wealthy and none of that happened. And look, it's all about, it's all a big lie, it turns out that they have lied to us. They doubted Allah subhanho data. So the assumption, but then that assumption turned into words, words, statements that they now lived by, or they accepted or they're going to behave, but you can see the behavior come next. First of all the assumption, and then the words came out and is what they said, then we'll have your own, and Latino people will be a model those who are full blown hypocrites, and then those who just had diseases in their hearts. And this is this is the

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

significance of understanding sort of,

00:07:46--> 00:07:51

you will be put in your life in situations where you're tested, where your limits are pushed.

00:07:53--> 00:08:25

And at that moment, all the diseases in your heart that you cleverly covered over, did not deal with did not find a way to fix will come screaming out and will come out. And they'll present themselves in a very clear way to yourself. And if you're unlucky to others as well, you're gonna become obvious to everyone that this has always been a problem that you just chose not to deal with. And this is the problem with these diseases of the heart, they may not be hypocrisy, fullblown hypocrisy all together may not be a full case of hypocrisy of any fault. But it is something that it's just a

00:08:26--> 00:08:36

it's a sleeping, or it's a timing Time Bomb, which is a ticking bomb, just waiting, waiting for the right situation to blow up and to cause you all the problems

00:08:37--> 00:09:15

that you can possibly imagine in your life. And the reason is that you didn't deal with it. These diseases are a part of our natural need, just our national psyche, just who we are, our instincts are based on them, it's normal, for you to have vanity, to have certain levels of arrogance for you to be a bit envious, for you to want to create the intention and the approval of other people, for you to be a bit selfish and to want things for yourself to be Oblivion towards things that are not affecting you specifically and indifferent towards them. It's just things are normal, to have to have lust and to be lazy. And to me, this is a nice thing. It's good and I think it's normal.

00:09:15--> 00:09:50

Everyone has it as a part of who they are. Now we learn as we grow up to slowly get rid of them. Children, for example, are extremely selfish, extremely selfish. They want everything for themselves. A child will you know will will scream for hours if you take a candy away from them. It makes no sense. It's just a candy. Why are you why are you acting like Jada you just lost everything and like why using those screaming for three, four hours? Because there's that's the level of selfishness that our instincts dictate. Now it's important it's key to our survival as a race we need we need that as children's need to have that if you're gonna grow up to be healthy individuals.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

However, do you accept the same behavior for someone who was 20 years old or even 10? No, you won't accept that same behavior. That same level of selfishness becomes completely unacceptable. You laugh when it's

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

When a toddler, we take away something in the cry, it's everyone smiles and laughs and they give it back and they hug them. Because that level of selfishness only is okay for children to have. And it's not okay for others to have. Now it's the same example and everything

00:10:13--> 00:10:44

is the same thing. We just don't fix all the problems, meaning we fix our kids done the constant, you cannot be selfish like that all the time. You can't be selfish like that. And they're all right. All right, they won't be like that. But there are other problems that we don't teach them that they have to change. And they stay with you as you grow up, okay? You continuously be craving, you tell them, you can't always crave attention from people, your child as they grow up, they want you for themselves all the time. That's when you have another kid and Subhanallah, suddenly, that's a big problem for the first kid because now he's not getting 100% of your attention, you only get 50. But

00:10:44--> 00:11:15

it doesn't like it starts to act out. And to start, they started behaving in an improper manner. Because they don't like that. They had to learn that you don't get to crave everyone's attention all the time, you have to be self sufficient to be self motivated. Sometimes we teach them these things, do we teach them enough for them not to have the problem altogether, when they grow up? No, they'll always have a certain level. There'll be rented or visited residue, these problems left in them. But other problems aren't fixed at all. Parents don't talk about whatsoever, sometimes they're missed out, and then you grow up and they're a part of who you aren't, you have to learn to deal with them

00:11:15--> 00:11:38

and get rid of them. Again, we're very indifferent. Kid children don't don't care about NaturallySpeaking. They don't care what's happening in a different room or and they care about what was happening for them, we have to teach them to become more compassionate and have more empathy. The more you work on stuff with children, the more when they grow up, they have less diseases of the heart that they need to deal with. And, and vice versa.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

But we can all identify

00:11:42--> 00:12:11

within ourselves and no one can do it for you, by the way, the different degrees of the disease that you have personally in your own heart. Only if you have a true amounts of insight. Are you capable of achieving this mean? You have to be someone who's very insightful, capable of of self observation, and then self regulation and finding out what is it that I what what are the elements of my of my neffs of my heart? What is it that I have in my knee that What about? I'll give you I'll give you example, that's going to come up with

00:12:14--> 00:12:48

a fear of death or being a coward. For example. extreme fear, right cowardliness. This is this is a disease of the heart? Do we not have it in different degrees? First we do we all have it in different degrees. We don't talk about it. Because it's embarrassing. We don't like it. But it's not really apparent in any of us until you're putting the situation through or not until someone pulls a gun on you. You don't know. It's not clear to you. But you may have known before that, yeah, I'm not I'm not very good. Something to dream will tell you about the previous problem that you had, when I was a kid, you remembered how you're in a situation where you should have fought for yourself or

00:12:48--> 00:13:17

defended someone, you chickened out on your end. And you were saying you're ashamed if you ever talk about it, because it's something that you feel embarrassed that you did at that time. But you learn something about yourself that in these situations, you don't behave the way you should, that's a disease at the heart, you have to work on that you have to learn to change it, there's there's a cognitive effort that changes there. And there's a practical effort that changes that as well. You have to go, you have to put an effort to change these things. But if you don't, then when the next situation comes along, and you're unlucky, that comes along, where your bravery is put to the test.

00:13:19--> 00:13:28

Because the they see, you expose yourself, it will be clear that Oh, right. And so, so many examples like that, in life.

00:13:30--> 00:14:03

We're just lucky that Allah subhanaw taala does not test every single tree that we've gotten. And you should, if you have nothing to say, hamdulillah about St. hamdulillah about that, they does not put you to test everything, to that exposing all the deficits that you have, that we have inside of our hearts, He doesn't do it rarely, but every once in a while, you'll put you to at least do one test. And if you've prepared yourself in your life, you can deal with it, you'll be happy, although you'll be very Jonnie not gonna say you'll be vain about and then that the disease in his own sense No, but you will observe that 100 I was able to deal with this we will not get the law Hamdulillah I

00:14:03--> 00:14:39

was capable of dealing with properly and surely get over the way I deal with him whether it's loss of a loved one, or if I need to failure in a professional setting or a failure in the emotional setting or a relationship or maybe it's losing wealth or losing an opportunity or whatever it is it could be could be multiple different things could be it could be health issues as yourself with your family members or those are important to your status problem or it's something different things that can that can happen that can put you into that test right and then you'll know do I have the tools that allow me to deal with this or do I not Did I did I do enough tests here? I do enough you know

00:14:39--> 00:14:49

self improvement and that I can deal with these things I'm going to crumble. Now these people are the assumptions but didn't learn to deal with these things called

00:14:51--> 00:15:00

Ruby emerald. Now, they got to give up the immediately they immediately lost their faith. No no Allah subhanaw taala is Prophet didn't everything

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

that they have ever promised us is just a delusion it's a hoorah it's a lie It's a lie you were told and look what we're getting instead of how are you saying this

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

thing isn't even over yet.

00:15:12--> 00:15:32

You just saw that the army is not done yet why are you saying these words It just shows you it exposed exposed people the way they thought and the way they behave. So this is we started with the thought and now after that the Quran told us what they said Now let's take a look at what's going to happen so we read the ion show number 13 After done you'll see the actual action

00:15:33--> 00:15:36

we lay him in a shape on your body

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

man you're working

00:15:47--> 00:15:52

with is all up on ether to mean whom

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

layer three B

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


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


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

while you're still being very mean Humann Abby

00:16:28--> 00:16:34

Luna in Abu udana want to hear B

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

E ri do

00:16:46--> 00:16:48


00:16:53--> 00:17:31

Got a either to minimum and then a group of them a group of the people of the 15. And those will be him or those with the disease or not all of them, but a group of them with a PA if at a minimum. So as if everyone had the assumption, and then only a small group of them, or a group of them said something that was good for and then a group of that took it one step farther. And they and they said something more they made it make me there was a behavior that followed it. Yeah, like a thread that went from, from them suffering on their own, from them going through the dose and the fear and the cowardice and not knowing how to deal with the situation, to generalizing and projecting on

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

everyone else. And this is something that we you know, there's important for us to think about, they said yeah, third of all people are gifted.

00:17:38--> 00:18:13

And your residents of this city get through LA Muqaam Allah calm, there is no point of view standing here. There is not going to be a stance for you here. Standing, defending the hijab defending the trench is not a good idea. It's not going to work, you're not going to be victorious, you're not gonna be able to hold your stance. This is not a winning situation for Allah Muqaam the word Muqaam. When it's not makan makan, this is the place to stay more climbing is not going to be a long term stance for you to be able to defend. There's no need to defend this law Muqaam welcome for Judo, go back to your homes, go back and just stay in your homes. And let's let things play out the way

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

they're going to play out.

00:18:15--> 00:18:32

It went from them suffering with the with adulterer problem to projecting it on everyone else. And this is a very, very known human trait. We do this all the time. When I can do it, I'm gonna try my best to make sure no one else can do it either. Because if I can't do it, then you did it.

00:18:33--> 00:19:02

I can't, I don't have an excuse anymore. I can't say that it wasn't doable. I have to say I failed. And we don't want to say that we failed. We don't want to have to admit that we had a problem. The problem was with us, you want to say that the situation was impossible. That's easier. You need a coat hanger for your problems. We look for them. Again, instinctively, always look for them. That's a disease that needs to be dealt with. The moment you fail. You start thinking why? Why did I fail? And you look for something to blame.

00:19:03--> 00:19:32

What's the easiest thing to blame the situation? The circumstances, the circumstances are easier to blame because a person so circumstances can defend themselves? Right? When you say it was a circumstances fault, the circumstance can't say no, no, it was yours. You can't speak back. So you know, that's something you don't have to think about. Because if you blame someone then that someone's gonna say no, no, he wasn't my fault. When you blame your parents then they have an argument back that I wasn't you did it. I didn't do anything. And it becomes a problem that we have to have now come up with an argument that works no, that's too difficult. Blame the circumstances.

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

It's easier because they'll never defend themselves. And if you can paint a picture that is brutal enough that is fearful. That is scary enough, then people will give you Yeah, you could tell it was it was useless. It wasn't pragmatic, was impractical. You're gonna lose anyway, I had to take care of my need. What did they say? Well, you for a minimum and maybe and then a group took it one step further. You're seeing failure now a small a smaller group. So it starts with a little known Abdullah hello and everyone at assumptions that a group said something

00:20:02--> 00:20:31

And then another group projected what they thought to everyone. They start to bring people down. People were standing there being brave, and then someone told them look, there's no point we're going to lose. We should go. Negative. That's that's not a good thing to say to someone who's standing there. I knew he's me. He's been he's been living beside the trench for the last 15 days. And it's been maybe 10 days into the sea so it's now 25 days close to a month. This guy hasn't eaten for a long time he's starving. He's scared he's cold. He's outnumbered and he doesn't know where to hidden seen his family in two three days. Tell them it's there's no Point Loma Carmela calm. There's

00:20:31--> 00:20:37

no point doing this. Go back to your homes. Mohammed in the margerine deal with what they did. They brought this on us.

00:20:38--> 00:20:43

Are you thinking you're saying what can be said here? You see the Muslims of Medina the on fire.

00:20:45--> 00:21:14

They could easily start those who were 15 were hypocrites or if you will be a moron. They played it they played that card. This is what the people of Makkah brought upon us. This is what you get five years of taking care of Muhammad Yunus people now look what you have. Look Look what they brought all Arabia to you. 10,000 people now we're standing outside of yesterday prepared to do to kill everyone. Go home, there's no point of this then go home, go home, perfect. Protect your homes and let them deal with what they what they brought upon us.

00:21:15--> 00:21:54

It's easy, and that makes sense that people are nosy. Yeah, I'll do that. And then there's a smaller group that took it into their own hands to actually do something the behavior where they know yes, then is asking for permission. And they didn't do it in a rude way this this shows you how how these things work. There's never it's never black or white. It's always the race. Then they come and ask permission from the Prophet so I sent them a group within 45 minutes. They say Jana Sula, NW tena, our, our homes are exposed, meaning we fear that the Mushrikeen or the hijab, or sending people or sending people around and they're gonna be able to invade our homes or steal our homes or harm our

00:21:54--> 00:22:20

families. Our homes are exposed me to go and protect our homes. We can't We can't stay here anymore. Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, man, he'll be older and their homes are not exposed. They're not exposes the lion, even if it were they were Why would you leave the yacht later on? Continuously? If they were? Why were you leaving? You've already given your word that you're going to do something here. Well, not yet. But you're lying about it. You come in with excuse, now did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he when he had these people came to tell him they were lying?

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

Can you tell them to the face? You're lying? Your houses aren't exposed?

00:22:24--> 00:22:52

He could be didn't. He never did some of them. He never told them they were lying. Most narration say that he didn't say anything. Me he didn't respond as in go or don't go. Because the fact that because of the fact that they already given their work to stay. So we didn't answer them. So I say they say no, we have to stay. And many of them left. And there were people who were later on exposed like I feel some of them they were exposed. So publicly, they had to leave yesterday, because no one's trusted them anymore after after what happened

00:22:53--> 00:22:53

in the boot and

00:22:54--> 00:23:03

there's no exposure, they and then they left some of them left and went to their homes. And they when they say left and you're like well what's the big deal, they had a position

00:23:04--> 00:23:44

to defend on the trench. You're supposed to stand there and defend it for you to leave me is now the trenches more exposed. And now they can start poking holes and finding weaknesses and maybe coming across and once they enter this over you the Muslims get it we are the people of the 3000 people 1500 of them car bearing arms, the rest are children and elderly and and women and now you end up with 10,000 populated army entering a small city it's going to be a massacre. It's going to be only those who are maybe going to stay in their houses hiding may make it but if you're carrying a sword, you're going to be brought down. AUD Duda Illa Theodora their houses aren't exposed AUD when all

00:23:44--> 00:23:50

they really want is feel out I feel all that is to is to run away is to treat is to

00:23:51--> 00:23:52

turn your back and feel out.

00:23:53--> 00:23:59

Is it Arabs before Islam the way they did our wars was called Qatar.

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

So it was a stupid stupid way of fighting and it was no because Arabs didn't want to die and there was no Islam right? They had no intention of being the martyrs or anything like that. Now they want to live so the best way to do it okay, we read them, we hit we run. Right and then we run away and then we wait do it again later on. That's it and there's no such thing that we stand our ground and we actually use there's no fighting with honor like for for many, many centuries. They didn't fight with Otto just cuddle with her. And that's how they did it. The prophets allies

00:24:28--> 00:24:41

within the battles he had with the donation others, it was a different thing. You had no cover photo anymore. You had an army that was well structured and organized and if people stood their grounds, I actually was one of the biggest cupboards that we have in the dean.

00:24:42--> 00:25:00

It's called it totally your Mazel Tov for you to run away in combat. If you're standing there if you've got if you've given your word to defend the Muslims or defend your nation or to fight for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala at the moment is one of the cupbearer for you to turn your back and run. You don't turn your

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

Back you stay you stay facing the that's why when they talked about saving the 90s AIDS it how do you think Jonathan and Abdullah when they looked at their bodies on the day of Moto three martyrs who you know who were carrying the the DARIAH motor that they found over you know 50 Yeah I need to hold puncture wounds within their bodies and then nothing in their backs and people took pride in that that turned to this you know this warriors turning to his back and see if any anything is back if nothing then you know that this person never turned their back for a moment and this was supposed to this was a sign of bravery the standard sign of so you're not allowed to run and yet they did AUD

00:25:39--> 00:26:19

doing it in Lafayette they're using they're using different words not saying gonna run you know it's only gonna run because we change our mind no they like our houses it was permission you know some of our houses are exploding to go take care of a house it's not gonna say out loud that they want to run he's like we don't ever say out loud the actual problem that we have will code it will sugarcoat it was something different this is this is this is the problem that we should learn to deal with in terms of you could identify in yourself that no I am many times Yanni indifferent or selfish or you can say no I am strategically planning my well being right you can use all those perfect words as

00:26:19--> 00:26:51

it's a way of me being confident taking care of myself You can pretty words around it, but at the end of the day, you know you're being selfish. But you're not gonna say it's no one's gonna ever say that this is a selfish action or this is a vein action or it's an arrogant action or it's envious Actually no, we're gonna find different ways to we're going to justify it you have to justify they have to justify it that to find some way to rationalize why they're going to they're gonna leave you know, either way but they need to find a way to do it so they don't look bad. So always start at the very minimum and maybe so they came in the Ask permission seeks permission from the prophets of

00:26:51--> 00:27:10

Allah Allah Our houses are exposed I'm not here the hour but there's not they're not exposed Why are you doing it? Are you really want is to turn your back and run through the two more eyes and the idea comes to her so it's become clear what we do in upper body

00:27:16--> 00:27:18

muscle it will fit snug

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

so let's

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

look at look at the word a second look where that Hamza is in the Word.

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

Is it on top of the lf

00:27:34--> 00:27:48

it's not right it's right before the end if you can see that it's not on top of the Elif other words in the Quran, you will find that the Hamza is is placed in position very comfortably on top of the Elif. But when it's put before the Elif, that means these are Hamza and and Elif.

00:27:49--> 00:28:14

Right when it's on top of the Elif is just a Fatah letter but no here you can see that the Hamza is before the 11 that's there are some that we use to make sure that of course the Quran when was originally written there was no Hamza and there was no none of this was there like it was just the lemon the olive in the in the top without the two dots so it was written very differently but the way the way they're writing it now it's simply to give you these little indicators so you know how to how to how to pronounce it properly. So

00:28:15--> 00:28:19

while I'm at Bethel be in your car

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

you when Loon And

00:28:42--> 00:28:44

don't law him at school.

00:28:49--> 00:29:20

So what are the two diseases that Allah subhanaw taala is looking at within this given example, which is, of course Sophia has heard the story of Eliza. He's looking at two things. He's looking at doubting Allah subhanaw taala is looking at cowardness or being being a coward or being being afraid and turning her back. These are two diseases that Allah subhanaw taala is analyzing here that existed in the hearts of the hypocrites and those who are diseased hearts. And this is what caused them to behave in the ways that are going to behave where they go in the Ask permission, they seek permission to go do something that they know is a lie that they know that has no merit to it is not

00:29:20--> 00:29:52

true. And the reason is because they want to run they're getting too afraid. They doubt that Allah subhanaw taala is going they said it. They verbalize and they articulated the point that they don't think that the promises of Allah and His Prophet are true. They think that their delusion mela de la hoorah at the same time they're very scared they want to run they don't want to stand here and die. They don't want to stand here and defend what they think what they are supposed to believe or be have a conviction in being the right thing. If you believe something is right and worth you know standing up for you'll defend it that's that's how things are supposed to be in life. If I give my

00:29:52--> 00:30:00

word that this is proper, this is righteousness, then I'll stand my ground and I'll defend it. Now the question is will you do it actually, that again, you have to think of

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

Are these things all? This is all you know, fun and games until it your life is at stake?

00:30:06--> 00:30:17

Meaning, as we sit here, we talk about these and we look at them, we idolize them, we think yeah, that was horrible. How dare they come in? Yeah. And he asked the Prophet, some of them for permission to leave and turn their backs at that very difficult day.

00:30:20--> 00:30:48

If they were doing that much down, yeah, there were some Muslims like their, their nanny explained, or they had given the testimony of faith to the Prophet SAW, they said, publicly, yeah, they know what it was. Yeah, but the problem was, was something a bit more detailed are kind of hidden that we have to think about here. Because right now, what I was hoping that was gonna happen, in your mind, as I was talking, is that you started to judge them a bit, you start to judge them a bit. Yeah. They said this, and they did this and you're like, yeah.

00:30:50--> 00:31:24

How dare they do this? And that important? They they sort of stood their ground and defended the prophets, I send them, how are you judging them? You will never in a situation similar to this. When were you ever in a situation where that quality in you or in me was put to the test? And if it was never put to the test based on what are you judging what they did? How are you judging their assumptions? How are you judging what they said? How are you judging what they projected upon others? And then how are you judging what they actually did? It makes no sense if you've never put me in put in that situation, to know that you would have behaved differently. Now we hope that in

00:31:24--> 00:31:57

sha Allah will behave differently in sha Allah and make dua and say I mean to Insha Allah, that's, that's fine. But the concept of how do you know that would have been any different here? No, Allah Subhan takes it one step further. It's not just the assumption, not just the thought, not just the words, not the projection, not the action. But then the last part that talks about an estimate, an estimated scenario that didn't happen, basically what they would have done, what I would do collect data in a capacity and have you entered Medina from every from every angle, like hide from how they enter from the north and from the south and from both sides and now they're overrunning it

00:31:57--> 00:31:58


00:31:59--> 00:32:25

Kataria to Mr. Evil Pfitzner and then they were asked to lose their faith or to betrayed the Muslims. fitna is the word fitna is a very general word, it could mean that they were asked to leave Islam. It could mean they were asked to betray the Muslims and stand with them. It could they would meet Fitna means they would have lost their principles concept of fitna here, they were asked to breach your principles to Muscle Fitness,

00:32:27--> 00:32:59

they would have offered it immediately went back to Bethel will be in Sierra, and they wouldn't have thought about it except for a few minutes, you'll see it which is a very, very short period of time, meaning they wouldn't hesitate for very long before they offered whatever they were being asked to do. It didn't happen to them, I'm going to say that this did not happen. But how it happened. This is what it would have been what they did. Now that is a scary, scary part of the surah. Allah Subhan. Allah is saying a little bit didn't happen. But this is what they would have done. All right.

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

This didn't happen to me. But he knows what I would have done.

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

Understanding the concept here. We weren't there.

00:33:11--> 00:33:52

You weren't there for a lot of other situations that are similar to him. But had we been there? He knows he knows what we would have done and how we would have behaved based on what, based on what we carry inside. It's not it's not some not some. It's my way. It's not it's not an insane way of doing it. He knows supine Oh, tada, what we care what attributes we carry inside of us right now. Have you dealt with vanity and arrogance and fear? And then oblivions, and, and lust and laziness and, and hatred? Have you dealt with these problems? Or not? And if you haven't, then it's just a matter of truth of a moment exposing it, and maybe you don't you're not given that moment. But if even if

00:33:52--> 00:34:24

you're not given that moment to expose it, Allah subhanaw taala still knows what would have happened. You're saying that ideas one step further. They didn't do this, by the way that people were talking about the minds that we so generously judged, and said, Yeah, he shouldn't they shouldn't they should have Stanley should have done this. Allah says, and you by the way, had this happen had the whole thing come crumbling down and, and they entered Medina, and yatirim, they would have immediately sold out, they would have given an immediately positive and they wouldn't hesitate for a few moments only just to come up with. It's not hard for them. By the way, why did he say

00:34:24--> 00:34:58

that? Like he could have just said they they gave in immediately. Immediately. Why did he say well method but to be in last year, and they wouldn't have hesitated except for appropriate amount of time. Because that's telling you that in order for them to convince themselves of doing something wrong wouldn't take too long. That's just takes convincing. You know, it's wrong. You know that this is wrong. But if you have but how long does it take you to get it? That means they weren't convicted will not believe me. They weren't hypocrites saying they're just waiting for it to happen to him, because they know that they have some faith in them. But not enough. Just not enough. The heart was

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

too diseased. So

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

Once this happened, it would take a minute, it would take a couple of seconds for them to actually convince themselves that this is the right way to do it. Why? No, no, I'm not leaving the dean. And it's just now if I don't do it, I die. And then my kid children die, and then it's done doesn't exist anymore. I have to preserve the Islam, they'll find some way to convince themselves that it's okay to turn their backs or betray or, or sell out and it comes to the conscience, you just lie to yourself pretty much, because you already know. But yeah, so the concept of justifying or rationalizing an action when we look at it, and we'll see what Oh, is the word NO MEANS and if

00:35:36--> 00:36:03

didn't happen, totally hypothetical. totally hypothetical was a scary hypothesis. Because if he knows what they would have done, that means he knows also subhanaw taala, we would have done and I wonder, I wonder what would we have done? Right, because some of that typing, and I told you the story at the beginning. No, bring it back now. Because I'm going to type in England, they heard the story of that from cabeza. And a part of the story was at one point the Prophet says I'm seeing them saying to them, someone go and get me information.

00:36:04--> 00:36:15

No one got up. Someone go get information, and you'll enter Jannah. Now one person, someone to go get me information and enter agenda with me. Not one person.

00:36:16--> 00:36:17

Not one person.

00:36:19--> 00:36:57

You know, who's sitting there? Oh, but go to mine. It used to be you're all sitting there. All standing there. Not one person. It's weird. The story sounds peculiar. Why didn't anyone say that? Well, the situation was have that level of of difficulty. And was that fearful? Now in their minds, like, Yo, sola will do something shallow and deep that will get us agenda with you, but just not tonight. Yeah, he will do maybe not today yet. I said, all those two calls, were too hungry, too scared. And then you have to call for the EVA word for word. And they've, uh, went over and came back and did tidying or listening to this, like, what is this? If we were with the prophets, I would

00:36:57--> 00:37:18

have carried him on our shoulders. And he wouldn't let him never let him even walk if you were there. And are they if I told them them to Kulu yo, Ma, you weren't there? You weren't there. You weren't? You didn't? You didn't experience it? You didn't You didn't go through the feeling you don't understand what you're talking about. It's easy to judge us that that night, we didn't put our hands up but you weren't there. Don't act like you know what it's like,

00:37:20--> 00:37:57

for your diabetes came to their mind. So it came to your mind in mind is fine, it comes to our minds. The question is, can we judge them? No, then what should we be doing? We should be focusing on on the on the teaching here. The teaching here is that if you owe to Allah, the interviewer will be a moron are the ones who who start to behave in ways that aren't proper. The assumptions come to people become a normal part of being a human being. But then what you say you're accountable for that what you project on others, you're accountable for that how you behave, you're accountable for that. And that's how Allah subhanaw taala knows, what will you what you would have done in a

00:37:57--> 00:38:32

different situation, because you already demonstrated, you give it an example, you gave example of how you how you behaved in this situation. So when he puts a parallel situation, you know, this is how you're going to behave then unless something changes significantly within you, and you actually fix the problems that exist. And this is a very important part of understanding what what this tool is teaching us. You have to be very aware. Am I am enough? Do I have any faith in me? And if I do, how to get rid of it? Do I have a clue him modeled? Do I have a problem with me? What's the difference between both? See I'm gonna focus more practical, you're clipping mold is more on a

00:38:32--> 00:39:08

spiritual level, meaning if you follow the model, or the people I give you example, are the people who lie to themselves told themselves lies to justify things and when I felt was the person who says a lie out loud when I came out about ocellus if there was any signs of I'm gonna feel either had different credibility, speak see lies, or either to me, that's fine. And if you trust him with interesting with something, they're not trustworthy, or either hostile, more fragile than when you disagree with them, then they lie. They say bad things about you. Well, either I had the other one they give a covenant or they come up with an agreement with you then they they betray that

00:39:08--> 00:39:14

agreement. It's more practical things people will be muddled are things that are more internal. It's not you can't see it. The difference is just

00:39:15--> 00:39:35

that's the basic difference. But because of these problems, the behavior is different on the day by so not everyone's like that you're thinking right now Oh, everyone did that they didn't know the second page of disorder talks about people, something's very different. You'll see the movements acted very different. Allah subhanho wa will praise them and praise the way that they behaved. But this has to be dealt with

00:39:36--> 00:39:59

well mounted up but it will be a legacy will only take them a small hesitation until they convinced themselves of this being okay, well, they can know how to Allah, I'm in Kabul, and they had given an indeed they had given their words and they had and they had given their agreements and pledges and covenants up and now you will devote before this they had already sworn that they would never turn their backs you will learn and develop that they would turn their backs and run

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

in the opposite direction, give their enemies their backs. You will learn to do both at the bar as you're behind, meaning you're going part of your body, you will Luna at the bar is Give someone your behind, which is basically a walk away from them lay Wiluna at the bar, they are given the unsworn they had given their pledges that they would never turn their backs to the enemy.

00:40:21--> 00:40:54

What can I do law, Hema schooler in the indeed the pledge of Allah in the covenant of Allah subhanaw taala? Is something going to be asked about my school, they're going to we're going to be called in and asked about what you promised. He gave us a pledge and you said yes, I accept it. I accept law ilaha illallah, Muhammad Rasool Allah and everything that comes with it and you accept within a number of different things. One of them is that you don't do that. And then when the situation came, you did you ran. Now how many pledges do we have, that I've never had just have never been tested. That's all. That's why it's not clear.

00:40:55--> 00:41:12

I've seen it well. Like I've seen this with my own eyes, I've been 90 warzones bring bring out the worst in people that literally the worst and the best. And you learn about human beings when you see them in situations that are similar to this. And you see the best things you the worst. And you know that Subhanallah

00:41:13--> 00:41:46

just because I was never put in that situation. I don't know about it. And we people can go through a whole lifetime, where they never put to the test and their true essence and their nature. And what they've what they've done with themselves is never exposed at any point. And on the other hand, there are a lot of people who have worked on these things changed the diseases of the heart, they've overcome all this, but they're also not put to the test. But what's the difference? When I would just say that Sally, Allah subhanaw taala knows what would have happened had they done this or that and this becomes the you know, that important element of how things differ.

00:41:48--> 00:42:01

Let's read it after that brings forward one more, because it's a continuous thought process. Allah subhanaw taala is analyzing and telling us this is what happened. This was going on and this what needs to change right. But later

00:42:02--> 00:42:07

on we'll figure out who in Ferrara tomb Meenal mo do we look forward to

00:42:16--> 00:42:21

what either led to Runa or Lila

00:42:25--> 00:42:28

Pullman the lady

00:42:36--> 00:42:42

in Aurora de Kumu and Debbie Qumran

00:42:50--> 00:42:50


00:42:52--> 00:42:57

dune in Lehi Valley, Jung Walla, and you'll see it all.

00:43:05--> 00:43:38

Now, he told us how this was supposed to be fixed. So it's not it's not an open end story where it leaves you wondering what was gonna happen? No. He's told us what happened on the day they saw the how the assumptions entered the minds of everyone standing there, and they were put to the test. It was a true shaking of the fate of everyone. And then those who are diseases in their hearts and those who were hypocrites, they went to their head when their head and they said something they said it's all delusion, it's all a lie. And then a group of them projected that on the people of yesterday and told them to leave as well. And then a group of them went ahead and asked permission

00:43:38--> 00:44:13

from the Prophet Sam to leave and they left even though they're they're excused was alive but there's one to run and Allah subhanaw taala set and if and had that entered, entered Medina, they would have all sold out immediately. We would have all given in and betrayed made us them but they wouldn't have hesitated for long, but it didn't happen. Even though they had all given their pledges and covenants that they would not run away if put in a situation like this and Allah subhanaw taala will ask about the covenants and pledges that that you'll give. Okay, so how would have this been fixed in a different scenario?

00:44:14--> 00:44:39

So now, we're going to find out two thoughts, they should have had two thoughts, these two thoughts, they said these thoughts should have been solid within their hearts and their minds, they should have thought of considered continuously throughout their lives. And they and these thoughts should have come up on that day. And these are the logic within them and the effect that they had should have helped them to behave differently. What are the doofah thoughts the first one called layin? fakuma

00:44:41--> 00:44:45

in Ferrara tomb immunol Moti, I will I will tell them are saying

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

that running away will not benefit you. Manufacturing will feel if you run away from deaths or or combat getting killed in combat with Bunsen and even if you do lead to McDonough Illa kalila

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

You will not find any find any level of relief except for a very short period. What does that mean? So let's say the battle is going to start right now.

00:45:09--> 00:45:17

I get scared, I turned my back and I run, it was destined for me that I was going to die 12 minutes into this battle, how long will I live when I run?

00:45:19--> 00:45:50

I said 12 minutes. And I said to my daughter in law kalila I only find relief from the scary situation for the 12 minutes that I would have spent actually doing what I what I told Allah subhanaw taala I was going to do, it's not going to help me running away, he's not going to do anything. If my life is going to end, if this is the end of it, that is the end of it. Whether I run whether I stay, it's not going to make much of a difference to him sopranos and even if I run and Allah Subhan Allah gives me a longer life to live, then I'm going to live a very short period of time, what is life and what is it going another 40 years? Yes, yes, I say 106 and other 60 years. So

00:45:50--> 00:46:28

what what is the next two years? What is 60? What is anything when you compare it to infinity is nothing to make their own Illa kalila you will not find relief to McDowell Mota, you don't find pleasure or joy, except for a small period of time. Why are you running that thought should have been solid. That idea should be solid in our hearts that thought leads to bravery. You know that but Allah subhanaw taala can't run from it. I can't run away from the destin whatever lots of predestined me for. I can't I can't do it. When he when I've already given my word that I would stand and do something, I'm not going to run away, especially if I've already promised that I would

00:46:28--> 00:46:32

do something I'm not going to run away and say I want to live longer know what's the point where I'm going to be

00:46:33--> 00:47:11

a bit of extra time. There's no point. It's not going to help me philosopher Hunter wants to end my life, you'll end up anywhere. I can't, there's nowhere I can hide. There's nowhere for me to go. That's the first thought that should have existed. See these thoughts combat a lot of problems that exist inside. And that's how you that's how you change. That's how you change your behavior. You combat bad behaviors with reinforcements of thoughts. It's your thoughts and your emotions dictate how you will behave at the end. It's as simple as that. If you reinforce a thought long enough, and that a thought is attached to an emotion, then that emotion will later on with thought turn into

00:47:11--> 00:47:49

behaviors that you continuously do in your life and it gets turned to habits and it has stopped them. How do you do this you start combining with thoughts you have to change the way you think this means you have to reflect you have to contemplate you have to spend time thinking about that, about this concept. will it benefit me if I run? If I'm running away from death or being or dying within within combat? Will it help me if I do this will I find benefit? Will I live longer? Will I live happier? Will No it won't. And why am I doing the second thought men in the lady yah Similkameen ally in Arada become Su and o RR they become Ramat same, who is that that will be able to protect

00:47:49--> 00:47:58

you our symbol can protect you from Allah if he wants to. And if he wants to harm you, or they become Rama or he wants to show mercy to you.

00:47:59--> 00:48:06

Who are you running away, too? And who are you wanting to running away from? If you're wanting running away from

00:48:07--> 00:48:10

an obligation that Allah subhanaw taala gave you?

00:48:11--> 00:48:38

But who is going to protect you from Allah subhanaw taala if he's destined you to harm are destined for you Rama? It's all in his hands anyway. So who are you running away from? And who are you running away to? There's no point of going anywhere. This is his obligations upon watada harm and ramen Mercia in his hands. So who's going to protect you from him? Okay, you're protecting yourself from the from the from the army in front of you ran away. Now the army can't harm you anymore, but who's going to protect you from Allah?

00:48:39--> 00:48:46

Who can protect you from Allah subhanaw taala you think you protect yourself from Allah? Mm hmm. And when he sinned, he ran agenda

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

start to run. Who did?

00:48:51--> 00:49:34

And I was running Allah subhanaw taala I would call upon Him say Adam, if you're on mini are you running away from me? Adam Bacala hire and mink said no, you're just ashamed. There's no way for me I ran I know that I can't run away from you. There's no point and that's why when you stay sober at the end of it, those who were put through the trial of the of the battle have to book those who stayed back and were punished. But at the end the Quran talks that describes their their mental status and well then no matter I mean, Allah He Ely and they came to the conclusion that there was no way to run away from Allah subhanaw taala except to run to him. There's nowhere to go. And that

00:49:34--> 00:49:45

is what they sometimes we fail to see when you're running away from from from confronting something he told you to confront. So you protected yourself from that confrontation, right? Yeah, I did. So he's gonna protect you from Allah.

00:49:46--> 00:50:00

If he destined you to harm or this is your dilemma. Why are you running? What are you doing? I mean, doing Allah he will Ian Well, no Sierra, and they will not find besides Allah subhanaw taala except are away from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah will yet what

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

I don't see you or anyone to stand by them more to know. So you're not someone who you also like, yo. So that means, helps you attain attain victory, or helps you become victorious, you will not find besides Allah subhanho away from Allah, they won't find anyone to be their allies or anyone to get them victory, then where are you going? What are you doing? It makes no sense when you think about it. That's why when you you and you're listening to this story, you judge them immediately. So to die, because it made no sense. Why would you run? You told them that you understand this is the amount of Allah you're standing by Rasulullah Salim, why would you run? Yeah, it's easier said than

00:50:33--> 00:51:07

done, though. It's easier said than done, way easier. And this is what we have to prepare ourselves for. I'm not telling you appreciate, prepare yourself, for those with us up. That's long gone. But at least start preparing yourselves for or we start preparing ourselves for life, for the difficulties that may come in late. Life throws you a lot of curveballs. By looking at the lives of those who live before you, it's not hard for us to come up with any, any number of different possibilities that might happen to us. And we need to learn to deal with it, I'm gonna give you one that is really important stop with here, because after this,

00:51:08--> 00:51:47

if you read the 18th, you have to read the 19th and the 20th. We don't have time, so we'll stop there. But I'll tell you something to think about one of the most important things that you need to deal with. From a heart perspective, from the disease of the heart perspective. We have to learn to deal with death, the concept of death, we spend our lives not thinking about it, we spend our lives, ignoring the whole idea until it comes. And then because we have no training, we have no prep for it, we don't know how to deal with it. The person who has died doesn't know how to die, and those around them don't know how to allow him to die. Even though every single human being has before us

00:51:47--> 00:52:22

has died, we will die and everyone who comes after us will die as well. There's the only thing we have in common, we will be different every way. We have one thing in common, we're going to die, there's no way running. There's no point of running away from it. Right? Accepting that I've seen Allah non Muslims come to acceptance of death, better than so many Muslims. And it baffles me, it bothers me. Because this is an example of a disease of the heart, we neglect an important issue. We don't want to think about it. We don't want to deal with the fear that comes with no longer existing. We don't want to deal with the sorrow of not being able to participate with with those or

00:52:23--> 00:52:24

those whom we love around us

00:52:25--> 00:52:53

are participating in life. We don't know what's going to we have delta, what's going to happen next. We're not sure about it. So we're not we don't want to leave what what is what is materialistic and what is certain to us and go into something that is maybe uncertain to us. All these ideas about death are difficult. So the question is, do you spend any time thinking about it? It's something I'm not saying you turn you enter a state of depression where you just know but have you dealt with the concept that you're going to die one day? Are you okay with that?

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

Are you scared?

00:52:56--> 00:53:16

It's okay, if you're scared, that's fine. Yeah, I mean, I hate those and I'm not scared of death. Yeah, cuz you're scared of death. Everyone's scared of death. Yeah, how are you not scared of death anyway, that makes no sense. You need to go see a psychiatrist, habibi. If you don't if you're not scared of death. Everyone's scared of death. But you can come to I've come to terms with death. I understand it, I accept it. I know what's going to happen, I'm prepared.

00:53:17--> 00:53:48

That's an example of something that you keep on procrastinating, not doing and then the moment comes? Do you not think this is a problem that happened to the people that this earlier talked about? Yeah, I think one of the problems wasn't just the fact that they can't, that's why the Allah Subhan Allah gave us so the Prophet because it's always and I'm here to things, say these two things to them. This is what you're supposed to, you're supposed to say, here's what you're supposed to think these are the ideas you should have had in your mind that you wouldn't have run if you didn't you have known that in modes would have been death or dying yet, whether normal causes Mode is

00:53:48--> 00:54:17

Normal causes or dying of something, whether combat or anything else, there is no point of running away from it. You're not going to live any longer than Allah Subhan Allah gave you and you're not going to enjoy that much anyway because it's short period your life to your life altogether as a short period of time it's not worth it. And when you run Who are you running away from? And who are you running away to? Allah subhanahu tonik Is there someone to protect you from him? You have an ally you have someone who can offer you victory against Allah subhanaw taala as well. What are you doing?

00:54:18--> 00:54:23

I think if that realization hit you at that moment you would stand Do you have an example of that I'll end with an example.

00:54:26--> 00:54:56

The same people I talked about a second ago Zaidan Jaffa and Abdullah right and that no one day of motor they stood there bravely fought till the last moment and died with his face towards the enemy. didn't hesitate for a moment. Jafar picked up the right immediately after him. Definitely Butalbital Allah who I know the prophets I said I'm his cousin who was going to be leg is going to be like the prophets on this and then he stood his ground and he died he lost both arms in a brutal brutal description of how he passed away do you pay any any died standing and then came to third guys.

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

roars you

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

Now it's his turn. I believe in Allah. Allahu Akbar, the great poet.

00:55:05--> 00:55:15

He, he started saying something to himself because there's nothing I wasn't too sure about this. And he did it, by the way, just so you don't freak out, he did it. He totally stood his ground and everything. But for a moment there,

00:55:16--> 00:55:17

he wasn't sure, just a

00:55:19--> 00:55:41

couple of seconds, but pick it up. Seems to me like everyone who picks up this via this is dying horribly, and really quickly as well maybe even let it lay down for a while until things cooled down and pick it up later. ideas. And then he said something enough to Maliki to kind of hidden agenda. You have to let n zielen Hola, Takara, Hina

00:55:42--> 00:56:13

nefs, you're going to enter this happily? Or I'm going to force you into this. What's wrong with you? You seem not to like Jana. What's what's wrong? And he would say he would say and you start to say poaching of the law and ruin, strengthen his into bring his Amen is exactly what this is saying. You don't have to say the idea. That's not the point to remember is that I say it on the day. No, no, no, it's the concept. You understand that there's nowhere to go. You're saying that there's no point of trying to prolong the life of Allah Subhan doesn't want does not want to prolong it for you, if we're going to try to prolong life by not obeying Allah Subhan. That's a useless thought to

00:56:13--> 00:56:50

begin with. Because Allah subhanaw taala controls your life, and he controls what harm and good comes to you. You understand that for him. He understood it, but you need reinforcement. So he reinforced himself and he took it. And I think he did well, and he fought and he died standing up in the prophets. I said, and I'm talking about something, he said, and then I see is Aiden. Jana is way up high. On Sarah, you're on a beautiful, beautiful place and I see Jafar right beside them. And I see Abdullah right beside him, but he's a bit under them a little under just a bit. Not not in the same degree. If I call your Salah why I call it like a hula. He hesitated for a moment, he

00:56:50--> 00:56:58

hesitated. While he has it, they maybe had not spent enough time thinking about that, as Zaidan Jaffa Jeff already,

00:56:59--> 00:57:28

they were prepared. They had fixed this problem a long time ago, they were not going to turn their back no matter how bad it got and got really bad. It got as bad as you can imagine. And they stood their ground and they died visa vie then they didn't didn't turn they didn't hesitate. Abdullah or the Allahu Allahu Allah maybe didn't put as much effort into it. I can, there's nothing wrong with saying that a lot of people are under the greatest hobby will never will never be as anything close to him. But it's important for us to learn from these examples. And I find this part of sootel hub is very, very powerful. It talks to something that we don't like look at no one's comfortable

00:57:28--> 00:57:28

listening to this.

00:57:30--> 00:58:01

Look at your face. No one's happy listening to this stuff. And that's exactly exactly why. So it talks about issues that are difficult, it's hard to talk about these things. We don't mind listening to this. We don't like being reminded that inside our hearts are so many small pockets of tiny little attributes that are negative, that are diseased that need to be fixed, and that they're not fixed, maybe exposed. If they're exposed, you're gonna behave in a way that you wouldn't, you don't want to behave and you're going to be held accountable for we don't want to know that. Tell us something that's easier and simpler and more uplifting. But this is the reality. And not only that,

00:58:01--> 00:58:12

but Allah subhanaw taala knows how you would behave right now if you're put in that situation. Think about that tonight, right? Now, if you're put in that situation, Allah knows what would have happened. Maybe ask yourself a question. Do you know what have happened?

00:58:13--> 00:58:47

Do we really know what we would have done in that situation? Or do we not have the ability to actually imagine it? Because we're so distanced from that time and that these type of situations that we don't know and the only way for us to find out is to work on ourselves and ask difficult questions and solidify ideas that we may not want to solidify and think about and come to conclusions that we haven't come to that we need to come to as quickly as possible in order for us to deal with our tiny they say to fight your demons and to confront your fears. I'll end with that in sha Allah will continue next week inshallah from a number 18 I hope this was not too intense.

00:58:48--> 00:58:49

People's faces are very

00:58:50--> 00:58:55

difficult to read the labels in general here, sonically behind the wish list of people to relate are some of the highest

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


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