Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Allahumma salli wa sallam about Acharya Muhammad in order to make no bad. So last time we were supposed to conclude with Liza however we failed to do so today inshallah we will conclude socialism,
I will revise it one more time, I think, to review a bit of the meanings will be beneficial for everyone and
help and Shall I give you offer you a grasp of the sort of
the point of what I do here
the biggest goal that I want to achieve and the way that I do Tafseer is to help
teach everyone how to understand the Quran. So it's not just explaining the verses that you know what that they mean, because that's not too hard to achieve if you were to pick up the translation with the FSI, and you can probably understand it, you know, the basic meanings of the of the words in the verses, but it's how to actually approach the Quran, how to look at the Surah, to see it as a unit attached to other units that have a
similar theme that they're talking about and how it was sutra, in its own essence is talking about a specific topic is trying to bring forward an idea of trying to draw your attention to an aspect of your faith of your belief in Allah subhanaw taala on your following of his of his command that maybe you haven't spent enough time thinking about. And then at the same I need to add to that how to, how to look at it and how to deal with it, and what examples exist in your life in the life of the prophets of Allah send them and prophets before him and some of the sahaba. And the Quran is very interactive in that way, because it wasn't revealed as a block. It wasn't given to the Prophets. I
said, and here's the book, talk about it. No, it was day by day, every time something happened, sooner Canaan addressed what just happened, or if something was about to happen and sort of came to address what was about to happen. So if we take the Quran out of that context completely, if we strip the ayat from their context, you don't really understand what's going on, they become very obscure and not very clear. However, when we look at a sutra as a unit, and then understand that each group of verses were revealed separately, regarding certain events at certain times, then at that point, you're you're feeling how dynamic the Quran is, and how colorful it is, it becomes very
it becomes alive, you actually feel that it's talking to you is speaking to you is giving you something to contemplate upon the reflectable I think that's the the biggest goal, or the major goal that I'm trying to achieve with the way that I'm doing. The Tafseer Oh, how are you Tafseer, generally speaking,
is part of a cluster of surah. So it's not doesn't exist on its own. Very rarely does a suit on the Koran exist on its own meaning, it's just you just they're talking about something completely disconnected from the sewer before in this sort of you it's going to be very, very rare. I don't I don't even know an example of it. I don't believe that exists in the corner anywhere. Sorrows coming clusters, that'd be three or four or five, they talked about a specific topic, they look at it from five, six different angles. By the time you're done reading these group of sewers, you are completely educated on that topic, you understand it very well, you have depth in it.
So until sort of far, there's a cluster of suits that talk about the concept of submission is to Islam, or PA obedience.
To submit to the will of Allah subhanaw taala, or to obey His command, you think it's simple, you think that's just a very united, you need two dimensional concept. It's not it's very multi dimensional, it's very difficult, and you're supposed to find it hard. I mean, it's not, there's nothing wrong with you, if you find that following his command and obeying him somehow they're submitting to as well is a bit difficult and takes a lot of effort. That's normal. The concept is, the thing that makes you different as Muslims that you're willing to do it, is that you're entering Islam with the will to actually submit to His will, you have the will you have the intention to
submit to Islam to obey Him. Now actually getting that done is is a lifelong struggle, you will, you will continue to struggle with this, you will continue to try and get that done all through your life in every aspect of your existence, you're gonna find it very
you're gonna find it quite complicated and multifactorial. So that was the first sewer within this cluster. And it's the longest of the students. And it's by far the most important if you understand it, and the rest of the students become much more easier in terms of comprehension. And you'll see that once we start reading so with the Saba, maybe you read a bit of it today, maybe not, maybe next week, you'll find it much easier to grasp, and it's much more enjoyable, as much more many more stories and, and it's a much more uplifting. So it talks about obeying Allah subhanaw taala, when it's specifically hard, when it is specifically difficult to do so whether the difficulty is
physical, or financial, or social or psychological, or it's just how to display and how to judge displaying distress that he was taught to do this. I just don't feel comfortable doing it or I'm finding it hard to wrap my head around it. I'm finding it hard to actually follow it.
Talks it gives all the examples that make you feel uncomfortable talks about all the points that you don't like listening to you don't like talking about oh, is this what students like every single ask?
deem that we, as Muslims, regardless of our age, or gender or our background, cultural background, will find one of these examples to be very, very hard to deal with. What are the examples this goes went through? After the introduction of the sutra and the introduction of the cluster of sutras and the first four verses Jaeger and tequila law to play carefully know what the what cannot Allah? What did you know you hired a camera before it for commands and three, try to wait one after the other half Taqwa. Make sure that you think in a preventative matter that you're you're focusing on making sure that mistake doesn't happen before it actually actually happens. Don't be don't obey don't
follow this in the footsteps of those who never obeyed Allah subhanaw taala. Because when you're similar to them, you will find it harder to be similar to those who obeyed Allah subhanho wa Tada, follow what you're given every time you commit a command, try to follow that command to the best of your ability. And after what could you put your trust in Him subhanho wa taala. Even if you cannot see the endpoint of what you were told to do, sometimes you're told to do something, you have yet to be able to figure out exactly how this is going to work for you in the long run, trust Allah subhanaw taala just keep on going, you will find it you'll figure it out soon enough.
And that kind of summarizes everything we'll talk about in the next 20 years or so, if you understand them, then they start going to the example. The first example was profanity in your team, taking care of orphans, bringing an orphan into your home, that is an uncomfortable thought on its own, to find the thought of an orphan and coming into your home. And then it came and talked about this concept that this is important for you to do. However, you don't give this kid your last name, he this kid has to know that He is an orphan that this kid is not yours, you bring them in there two months old, as far as you're concerned, as they're growing up, you're at Baba, and you know the lady
beside you as mama, but you're not, you're gonna take care of them, they're gonna love you like that you're gonna love them as your own children, but to have to know that you're not my biological kid. See, uncomfortable thought. But that's the shadow of Allah subhanaw taala. That's what He commanded us to do. Be honest about it, they have to know it will scar them, maybe Will it hurt them maybe. But in the long run, they're better off knowing what happened and being lied to all their lives and then finding out by mistake or never finding out and then any day lived a lie. Basically, no one wants to live a lie. And that's that's that's known, regardless of what the lie is, we don't enjoy
living a lie. And sometimes, any living a lie is the only way for us to live happily, but still Islamically it's just not okay. So that was the first example this would have brought forth. The second example was the story of the surah itself. This one is called the lies of the Confederates. And this is a talks about the battle that happened in the fifth year of Hezbollah. When the Prophet SAW Selim, the Muslims had established some strength within Medina, and all of Arabia, somehow unprecedented in history, were able to agree on one thing, they don't agree on anything, but they agree that let's take out the Muslims and get rid of this group. We don't need this group. And
10,000 people marched towards Medina, and in 15 days, they dug the trench around around the southern part of Medina, because it's the only way you can get into it, or the northern part, sorry, Medina is only bait we can get into it. And they stood their ground, they held their ground, and they held their spots and positions in terms of defending the trench. And this sort of talks about the psychological Yani waves that the Muslims went through, as they saw 10,000 people marching to them in the horizon. If you haven't been in war before, then you may find this hard to understand. If you've never been in it physically in a place where where war is going on. You may find this to be
any kind of very distanced idea but ask a parent or a grandparent to who know what war is and maybe ask someone who's had to carry weapons one day and stand Hey, are we gonna live today is just not going to die right now. And yeah, I need here it was that we're gonna make it and then some of them took it one step forward, and then went off your own and the ones who had disease in their heart called whom Allah then Allah who want us to to who level whatever only what we were promised by Allah is an illusion. It's all a lie. Now this is all one big hoax and they start seeing these things and then others took it one step forward or further with God, or even dominium Yahaya three
Bulama Carmela confirmed God I'd say people yesterday we should go back to your homes, leave the trench go back to your homes when they come in the Confederate tell them we're not fighting we just want to stay alive with our homes and to leave you alone. And then when group took it even farther, and they left with the upper minuman Debbie Yeppoon in our ohana here.
A group said Dr. Oz II I also want to let us leave our houses homes are exposed and in the city wanted to go in
and take care of our home or or protect our homes, some people actually left and then Allah subhanaw taala talked about the fact that had the Confederates entered many people would have given up their dignity immediately when I was looking at it in authority had to muscular fitness. Now it didn't happen to Confederate didn't make it in but had they made it in some people would have given up so for a page in it for two pages and a half. Allah subhanaw taala just shows us how people fluctuated and how the psychological effect of this fear influenced their their judgment and but some of them Muslims, some of the people
but when the believers so Baja Allahu wa Sadat, Allah who was suitable the moment only had more email when he saw
As you said, this is what Allah has promised. He has promised us struggle he has promised us a strive He has promised us difficulty and here it is. He promised that one day would have to stand for righteousness and we're getting we're getting the chance to do that right now and the increase in their Iman Omega Dahomey Allah Eman and what this means.
The final example within that story is what happened to the who'd been a formula to the Jewish tribe have been Aquila, they committed treason in the middle of war, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he this is a hard story even to tell she's uncomfortable even to hear the story that dark what the judgment that happened is that all the leaders and all the men who were involved in the treason were all beheaded. And the rest of were sent out of the sea. They weren't allowed to stay in Medina anymore. This story is a story of problem. We talked about it Yaniv in detail once we read the but it's a difficult, it's a difficult story to explain. But it's a part of the problem of Allah
subhanaw taala accepted, don't accept that's what he did. And that's what happened is what the records the example after that a third example, talks about something a bit more personal in his life, some of my send them an interaction between him and his wives.
The prophets, I have chosen life of simplicity, he chose it, he was not poor. Being poor means that you can't make money, he wasn't forced to play Salem, he could make money, he made a lot of money. However, he didn't bring money into his home, he chose to live a life of simplicity and to give wealth to those who are around him and surrounded him in Medina and of the Muslims. And he would bring home very little just enough to survive just enough for he and his wife to eat. They lived in houses that you would if you were tall enough, if you if you were taller than me, maybe a meter and 85 centimeters, you'd have to put your head down to get in because the roof was so low, there was
just one room and they were very small rooms. Now the wider the prophets I send them with sometimes complain, there was a little sort of line and the day came where they all complained, especially after one of the battles where he brought a lot of wealth and gave it to everyone who came home with nothing, not even a piece of meat. They also learn to win, when are you going to win is our financial situation going to improve? They told them it's not going to improve? This is the life I've chosen. I chose to live like this. I don't have to live like this. But I think this is how we supposed to live as as examples for the Muslims, we have to be as long as there's a Muslim who's in
need, we have to be in need until every Muslim is eating well, then we can improve our Jonnie our financial wealth or financial being. well being. And of course, some of the things in life that so the prophets I think, got upset. And these ideas were were revealed and told the ladies in the wives of the Prophet, you have one of two choices, either you live how he wants you choose Allah and the day and the day of judgment in his prophet, you live as he wants or you choose dunya and in that case, then he will give you dunya and no hard feelings. The Prophet is saying well let will release you from being his wives and you no hard feelings, but we're gonna Salah Han Jamila, you will be
divorced in a very classy way. You will not be mistreated. It's not like you're going to be say, Oh, these are the lady who refused to know you'll be treated respected. But if you're going to stay at his wife, if you want that status of being Amil meaning the mother of believers, then you will live this way. Now, is that a hard choice to make as someone who's married and you are not married, you'll find out. Hello, wife, this is the end of it. This is as far as we go.
As much as we'll ever own. Let's see how that conversation goes. It's very hard in marriages, it's always thinking about what's going to happen next. How you know, we're in this situation now and shut up very soon, it will get a bit better, it will have a bit more, it will be a bit more comfortable and a bigger house and a bigger car and more any trips and we can do this for the kids that we can do that. When you say no, no, we're not even trying to do that. Now if you can't do it, it's fine. Right? This is not good there. I can't hear you. The man is working. He's doing his best he's working all day long. This is what we have handed and everyone's happy. But if you're like no
no, we can't I just don't want to do it. No, what do you mean I want to do it no, go do it. Definitely do it. The problem was I said to them has the potential to bring in a lot of wealth. And he was telling them I'm just not going to do it.
He very comfortable, comfortable situation totally, totally not something in the norm. The example of submission and the wives of the Prophet unite unanimously all chose to stay with them select them with those conditions and that is why they are only held in the status that they held after that paragraph after that are the chapter that talks about status of women in Islam something till this day we we find difficult to speak of sisters find it difficult to explain to their daughters and explain to themselves and to others and men don't know how to speak about it regarding their own family members or non family members until this day we don't really it's it's hard we'll call them
nothing if you couldn't know what I say about Raja Raja Helia Talulah talking about the fact that when it comes to the way they dress and the way they express themselves in the way they speak to to men and what's acceptable one is done putting down putting down the laws for that and then talking about the fact that they are equal within the deen in a Muslim Nina well Muslim it will mean the male Muslims and the female Muslims and the male believers in the female believers and the male I need faster is going too fast and then females who fasted talking about every single act of worship that's exactly the same I'd dilla hula home they're all going to find a juvenile Lima Yeoman piano
for us that's Oh that's that makes us feel good but for arrows by
back then that wasn't something they enjoy you like what? So we're equal to our sister to the ladies AMEN At the time in a time where you thought the thought process was very different than today they enjoyed the first diet and they didn't enjoy the second one for us obviously we find difficulty with the first one that we see we this is this is this makes sense.
It tells you something that's not about what you're comfortable with and what you're not comfortable with.
Doesn't matter what you're comfortable with to be honest no one cares a lot somebody's not doesn't care what we're comfortable with. That's why the 636 I have the suit which is the foundation
the main verse of this whole sutra Well Matt, kind of the movement if you don't know anything from the Sunnah no desire, just carry this with you. It'll do his job. Well Matt Kennedy movement in one minute in either Acaba, Allahu rasuluh who am Ron and your Kula, whom will hear me him. It has never been optional or acceptable for a believer whether male or female, if Allah subhanaw taala gives a decree or decrees and a command for them to choose to do or not to do. If you are believer when he says something you do. It's not about whether you're comfortable with it or not, whether you like it, whether you fancy it, whether it's easy, whether it makes sense to you, whether it's a part of
your agenda, whether it falls within your long term or short term plan, it doesn't matter. He is not interested in that subpoena with data that's not your place, is not our spot to say, well, I like this and I don't like that. We're not partners with him. subhanho wa taala. And this partnerships exist in the way we interact with one another in life. As long as you're human and I mean human, you can be the boss when we're still partners, what we're doing with Allah subhanaw taala is not the same dynamic. He is Allah He commands and then we obey. That's the whole point of the sutras. He commands and he we obey when the UFC, Lucha wanna Sula who forgot the Bala, Bala, Medina those who
just disobey Allah and His Prophet, they're the ones who are completely lost. If you believe in Him, you will know you don't have the choice, when he gives the command, there is no choice we follow and we take that from this whole surah the paragraph after that talked about the most difficult social situation he was ever in, in his life and life and and it just tells us Had he ever chosen to withhold a verse from the Quran, he would have withheld these ones meaning of the prophet or something within the business of not telling us everything Allah subhanaw taala brought him he would have chose not to tell us this because this dived into his personal life into what he thought it
exposed feelings and thoughts that people didn't know about in his own heart when he was told by Allah subhanaw taala you're going to marry Xena brother Alana Alana, the ex wife of zeta but how do you tell who was his adopted son? He wasn't his son. He was his adopted kid. Now in Islam, It's haram for a father to wear it to marry his his sons, ex wife. That's haram that is Heckscher you're never allowed to do that. You're not allowed to marry your father's ex wife. No, of course we're not talking about your mother but if your father was to marry you and he for some reason another lady then if you if he divorces her, you cannot ever marry her and vice versa. So the prophets I send
them Zaid wasn't his son so there's no problem with him marrying Xena Xena was about to become one of the great Omaha I think what meaning however is he didn't want to do it because he knows Arabs will never leave that this go. They'll say look Muhammad is marrying the ex wife of his son even though it's not really his son and they're gonna play that in Arabia they're gonna use that rumor to smear his yeah I need to smear the
the reputation of Islam basically to ruin the reputation of the deen so his his fear selection wasn't for himself was the fear was for the deen but even though the fear was for the sake of the deen Allah subhanaw taala told him what action nurse Allahu wa Hacohen Daksha and you're fearing the opinion of people and Allah suppose more worthy of your reverence feared him he told you do something do it right but don't beat the NFC come Allah who will be your hiding in your heart something that Allah subhanaw taala is going to want to expose very soon it's talking about something inside him is Allah Islam. And when he's reading these verses, and he's thinking I have to
read this upon all the Muslims, they're all gonna know that I thought this and that's that's what came out it was in me, but he still did it and some of the scholars of Islam say this is these are ones that you know for a fact that he is also to Allah, Allah said them because no one no one who was make would make making up something would would recite it out like this to people never Why would you do that? Why would you expose something that you felt that Allah subhanaw taala is going to call you out on the act in the middle of mankind? I don't know be human how to female funneled Allah hula, it has never been distressed upon a prophet when Allah Subhanallah gives him a command.
He told you to do something, don't feel distress. Don't feel bad about it. Don't start worrying about it. You know, this, you know, this is the right thing. Yes, they do it then go ahead. Don't worry about it. Don't feel distress. The point of the Dean was not to put you in distress. If you're feeling distressed, and either you're doing it wrong, or you're thinking about it wrong. One of two things is happening. You're going to perform it wrong in a wrong way. You need to ask someone who has knowledge to tell you how to do it, or the way you're looking at it is improper the profit slice and for a moment looked at it in the wrong way. Right. There's a whole different angle but he
He missed in terms of solidifying the proper relationships. He's not your son. So there's nothing wrong with this, what is hot because how can number two is a number that no one has a great lady, she deserves to be meaning for us to call her and settle the Allahu aina. And she's the mother of believers and our mothers have been to Joshua Dillo. And she deserves that. So it's not about what you what you're comfortable with and what you're not comfortable with a very, very keen social example of how sometimes it's difficult. There were given right after that, the remedy, if you want to be able to find a difficult command easier than you need to do something simple, you need to go
to Allah Declan, Kofi, and that's how you fix it as the AI right after it. Remember Allah subhana, Allah Allah, there's two ways to remember him, the traditional way of just counting the to speed, and that is good. There's a lot of excellent data, and I encourage everyone to do 300 Today, every day, at least in the morning, 300. And if you have some him, I do a few 100 in the evening as well. And stuff, it takes you exactly 55 seconds, if you're, if you're slow, if you're quick, it'll be done in 30. I started with Allah 100 times, say Allahumma Salli, ala Muhammad Ali, use ivh made 100 times that will take maybe a minute and 35 seconds, and then do you know, hayleigh 100 times it will
take maybe a minute and 10 seconds. So if I have four or five minutes, do it every day, and then build on it every couple of months, I had another 100 Every couple of months, I had another 100. And it's slowly slowly by the time and here maybe some of you, some of us are pretty young here. So it's not because Yanni and a couple of years, you'll find you have a nice couple of 1000 just behind that you do every day and it's not difficult for you, you want to find a way another way to do remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala is every time you make a decision before you make the decision before you make the choice. Remember, Allah is something he would be happy with. What I'm going to
say right now what I'm going to do right now, the people I'm gonna hang out with right now, how I'm going to behave, I'm gonna say is that something who would be approval? If yes, then go ahead. If no, maybe take a moment to think about it. The more you do this, the easier His commands will become, the less you do this, the more difficult His commands will become. So it talks about the difficult commands, you want to make them easier through a lot of thicker and they'll become easier, and you will find ease and everything he tells you and you won't struggle anymore, and the struggle will decrease.
The example after that even became more personal into his life. So I said and it was more I talked about his personal choices, in terms of who he can marry and who he cannot marry. And I talked about the probability of him being able to marry wherever he wanted to, and whatever number that he wanted, even though he didn't do it, somebody sent them but as Muslims we accept that. You can't see well why was he that's what Allah subhanaw taala allowed him to do. You're under the EU and na Nanak as logic olatuja data European or maybe like a team you look for Allahu Allah COVID-19 amico and Tikka you are allowed to marry whoever you want yellow suit Allah, it is your choice to do what you
want. He never did. This is this is the point that's important for us to understand that he never did somebody say you only did the one you only married the ones that Allah Subhana Allah commanded him specifically to do so he never He didn't make it. He didn't take this option, but it was there for him as Muslims, we accept that. These are all examples of submission. Accepting his god is what He commanded. We will be and we submit the we accept. We're not we're not we don't object a lot to Allah subhanaw taala refuse. And in the same group of verses he is told lie ahead you like a nice Ellman bad Yes. And Allah is not it's no longer permissible for you to marry anyone else it's over,
after you made marry or the Allahu Anhu that said, you're done. You can't marry anymore. But why is that there because he also has to accept the last command whether he likes it or not. Just like we have to accept Allah subhanaw taala when something is given specifically to emphasize them different than the rest of us, he also has to accept Allah's command when that's reversed and changed. So it's a two way road, we all have to accept what he says. The chapter after that talked about an issue that is also uncomfortable, but in a different way. His home, so let's
imagine if he was alive today.
Right? Imagine if he came he prayed here in the masjid of London every moment how many people will be waiting to speak to him after each prayer?
Right? Imagine how many people are waiting in line with their problem or their fatwa,
or whatever it is that they have the idea in their mind. And they're like so I just need you for maybe like five hours get us to the logistic tell you about my useless problem that I could have fixed it myself. But I also like to connect it with you. And imagine imagine is like back then at least I'll just sit on how many people are pulling on his stool back and forth. We need and then some people would take it to the extent would come to his home. They would come to his house and they would sit around and he would wait for the food to be made and they would eat the food and then he said after food and how do you strike a conversation? It's fun to talk to the laserLine he's
always smiling he's a nice guy. You don't understand how extremely uncomfortable he was he's awesome with all of that but I would never say that he was too polite to ever say anything to the I came and said
we will tend to be ill then come Don't enter last year and he calls you in and when you said don't wait for the food to be made. Wait don't wait inside and when to eat finish your food and get out this will tell you seeing those who don't wait for a conversation hey, let's talk about you know today friends one nice game is
now he doesn't have time for this as he has Why isn't he as your children he has grandchildren he has other children of his wives that he needed to take care of and problems of the OMA he doesn't have time for all this in Nevada come can you then be Yes.
Indeed that used to harm the prophets. I said that but he would be too embarrassed to come and tell you that the hola hola Yes. You know how philosophize. Don't embarrass from the hug, he will tell you do not do this anymore. And when you enter his homes, don't sit there and stare at his wives because it's only one room. They're sitting here the problem is anything over there. Well, I just think there because there's nowhere else to sit. So don't sit down in everyday for hours. Look at the same lady, she's not your wife, and she's not related to you. And this is not proper, there's no professional relationship with you them with him. And he put the hijab, meaning there would be a
curtain whenever they spoke to the wives of the prophets. I mean, that was specific to them.
The final, of course, after that in the Lahoma that you could use or Lunarlon maybe you're gonna be now middle solo either he recently moved to Lima. So we're commanded to do Salah Rasulillah so I sent him all the time. Why? Because this verse, This surah exposed a lot of his social or his personal life issues, a lot of the problems between human and his wives and human as a Hava things that he was made before and haram against the things that he struggled with, to tell us that none of these examples was to bring down his status as a sorcerer, he is the one that you do follow upon every single day follow Allah He was an interesting masala besides Allah masala he was telling
me because because I asked about this verse to learn to learn from the difficulties he had, who are we going to learn from if not from him, somebody said to me that these difficulties happened to everyone, even to the best of us, and we learn need to learn to deal with them.
The Final Chapter, talked about another difficult issue, you whenever you apologize, logical Benetti conocidas, meaning you didn't even ally hindlimb Angela BBN talked about the dress code that is sometimes specific for Sisters in Islam, need to wear clothing that does not expose their bodies not show flesh that does not show certain parts of them. And Allah SubhanAllah. Again, an issue difficult to talk about today is more than ever is hard to talk about hard to bring up. But that's the way it lays out for you guys is pointing out all the hard things that you don't like listening to telling you you have to be you have to submit you have to accept. If you're a true movement, you
won't struggle with this. If you're a woman, you may struggle with this, but you'll still do it anyway. You want to say well, this is optional, I can do it if I don't want and if I don't want to know this is what he said is what you will do, we can make some of it. And we can dislike a lot of it. But we like it we don't like it we're comfortable with not comfortable with. It's really not the point, we recited the finale of the suit. And there was a lot of things in that I'm not gonna go into details because it's all just a summary. Coming to the last few verses that we started last time, you will have the Tapachula Kulu cola and studied are those who believe have Taqwa of Allah,
prevent problems from happening, prevent harm in dunya. And asking them everywhere they were tucked away, I want you to think like that you see here, tequila, or tequila, or I look on the phone or whatever. Whenever you hear that word, what you're gonna think about, you're gonna think about a system that allows you to prevent harm. That's what it means it's to prevent harm in dystonia, and you're preventing a problem from happening before it happens. before it happens. Dakhla doesn't mean that you entered now that you get out no deltoids that you never enter Janam you prevent that from ever occurring. Not getting in and finding a way to get out is not falling into the sin and then
doing repentance. That's called repentance God has called us to fall telkwa is can you find a way not to do this and to begin with, it's better that way. The less mistakes you make, the less problems you fall into, the easier your life is going to be. And we know that today, when you have the illest class, you have the illness here, I may be able to cure you, I may not be able to cure you to take a long time your life is going to change prevent diabetes and hypertension and all these other stuff to prevent it by changing your lifestyle prevent that duck Well, that's duck Wah. So we're supposed to live with
a concept of Taqwa even the show you tell us whatever you who you already know, I'm gonna listen. We hear you talk Allah, listen even deeper, whatever is gonna come next is gonna be really important for you as a Muslim to be able to function properly here. Baku, Poland, study them, and say words and say what you were saying.
Said EDA said EDA, as I explained last time means something that is correct. And that will serve the purpose will will achieve the goal. So it's not just saying something that is right. It's making sure that what's being said is going to achieve the purpose for what it was said in the first place. And this is something that we're required to do as muslims. And last time, there's a nice little conversation or discussion about that. I want to make something very clear. This doesn't mean that every time we say something, we say it.
tenderly, no, sometimes in order for somebody to achieve its goal, you have to say it with some strength in it. But the point wasn't to say that whether we're saying something, just say it tenderly or strongly. The idea was when you're saying something that is truthful, make sure you say it in a way that allows it to achieve his goal and you will be the judge of the situation that you are in. Don't say it in a way that
achieves your personal gain, or your personal selfish status or self interest when you say something so you can feel good about yourself. I need someone did a mistake. So you can point out his mistakes so that you can feel good about your own self that I, I saw. And I said, No, say something that is, that is true. And that is correcting those righteous, but make sure it helps the person in front of you doesn't help yourself, when I see your brother making a mistake,
how I go by explain to him that that was wrong, is my choice. It was wrong, that has to be addressed. It was a mistake, that's Balkan, I have to explain to him what it is at this point. Now how I do that is my choice, I can do it in a way that will serve that person so that that person gets better. Or I can say do it in a way that will make sure that he does it every single time till the day he dies, just to spite me. Or make him self defensive and, and self righteous. And I'll make him Yeah, I struggle with this for the end of it to the end of his life. Because the way that I said it, the way that I addressed it was not proper and was not respectful. It wasn't done in a way that
suited his mindset and suited the type of person that he was the prophets, I send them did this all very, very well. And he did this all the time on here. So it was he was very good at identifying what type of person he was speaking to. And then speaking to them in a way that served the purpose. See when he 99% of the time, tenderness will will fix the problem. As he said, This is an American coffee and Eliza no one knows. Yeah, Michigan, Alicia and whoever you put tenderness in anything, you will, you will beautify it take out 10 minutes of anything, and it will become something that is disgraced. However, there are examples of him. So I said I'm being very, very tough.
The final way he did Dawa for honorable Hopper before he accepted Islam, when you read the story is that he took a murder by the by Mantella Devi to convey this part of the Libya here like this. And he shook him with his hand a few times. And he told me that actually, and usually my armor when it has a time not come for that brain of yours to accept this and he should not it was very, it was very sheer. There's a lot of *. And there was a lot of the strength and at the termination, but that was suitable for the personality of Uncle Bob. That worked with him for him better. Right. But that's that's one out of maybe 10,000 examples, for the better part of most people like things to be
presented in a very, in a tender, respectful way, where your your focus is not on yourself, just self righteousness, but more on, you know, their process of improvement. And we don't like being told we're wrong. They don't like being told they're wrong.
But no one's gonna put their hands up. We all hate being told we're wrong, even when we're wrong. Specifically, what went wrong? We hope to get out. Yeah, did you get away with it for a moment, and then we'll fix it later. But sometimes we're going to be criticized constructively and told that, you know, this is not the right way to do it. We would like people to do it with respect, respected for people to maintain our dignity as they do it. And that's what he
said either means, say something that will achieve its goal citied who said didn't kick the ball goes into the Golden City actually makes it
achieves its goal. What happens when you do that? So your
he will perfect your deeds for you. subhanho wa taala. And that is the point of of this example. He didn't say Kurokawa now Saha, or put Google colon help you
don't say something that's correct. Anyone can say something that is correct. But I say something that will make a difference in a positive way. When you do that Allah subhanaw taala will perfect your deeds for you. So your deeds won't be just good deeds will be perfect deeds, your sled is going to be right, it's gonna do his job, it's going to perform its function, it's actually gonna achieve the goal. And then we'll feel like I'm doing Uber calm and your sins will be forgiven as well.
So it's a beautiful, it's a beautiful group of verses. And it's another one of those commands are a bit difficult to deal with. Because NASA and my understanding is one of the most sensitive parts of being a Muslim and important parts when he was asked to send them an email, but do not say your religion is based on any advice, human yet also love calling it that he was really he will be emitted Mussolini and Nikita the Muslim God Almighty him, you do not say for the sake of Allah as he was prophet for the sake of his book for the sake you do it to the people, the leaders of the community and into the into the put into general public as it has been for everyone all the time. So
it's a very important part of the D but it's also very specific part of the deen it's very sensitive, if done improperly, if done disrespectfully you've done with the lack of wisdom, it can ricochet can completely turn against you you can your effect can be the opposite of what what was what was intended in the first place. You can do it in a way that will cause someone to make this mistake everyday to the for the rest of their lives. You can actually build a you can build an activist against that piece of advice. If you give it in a bad way you can make that person be free
only committed towards finding the facts are finding the justification of them continuing to do things the way they're doing it just because of the way that you presented it, and how you how you presented it just a bit differently, they would have been been on the different side of it. So be very careful. It's a very sensitive part of the deen. So if you do it, right, you Allah protects your deeds and forgives your sins, we're going to play hola hola Sula, and those who obey Allah in His prophets, because this is an act of obedience, when you do it like that. They've got the FISA folks in our team, and then they have won
the great victory achieved a great victory. I want you to think about that. The next time you give someone advice, whether someone you know,
like a family member, or a friend,
or in the rare cases, a parent,
or someone you don't know, I advise you don't give much advice to people you don't know. It's my advice to you don't, don't advise people you don't know, take, maybe take the time to get to know them first. Because if you don't know that this person's mental structure in front of you, chances are you're going to do advice, give advice in the wrong way and end up not really achieving the goal. And the first encounter between you and someone else shouldn't be you pointing out how wrong they were. Right? Specifically, if you don't carry that status, like if you're an Imam, or I let him people know that that's what you are, you see a mistake, you're actually required to they say
something. But if you just like me, just another dude. And you see someone making mistake, you don't know the person, maybe maybe need take some time, maybe look for someone who knows that person and make sure that they they can speak to them first. But you want to give advice to someone who do do know. And I think that's the more common Yanni example here to a brother or a friend or someone in your family.
And I'll be even more specific if you have a sibling, right, or younger sibling. And then in your home. This sibling is making a mistake that you've made many, many times before, he was just not around to witness the times that you made that mistake before him. And you decide that you want to give this person any advice and tell them that that's wrong. I want you to think before you speak, because you will find that the tendency in your heart is going to be very harsh, you'll find a tendency inside you or the same thing from a father to a son, if you have children, the tendency inside you is going to be to give this advice in a very harsh way, by yelling at the child or
yelling at the person or telling them that if you do this on the telephone, you are gonna get in trouble, we're gonna break your hand or break your head or something like that something that involves maybe a certain level of Jonnie of
violence somewhere down the road. But if you understand this idea, you want that person not to make that mistake thing, is there a way for you to give this person advice that will allow them or will be more likely for them not to do it.
And think you will find at least 50 different ways. But none of them are self serving. So they're not fun. So there's no there's no gain for you don't gain anything. When we yell at people, we there's, there's relieving some stress by the way.
I learned this when I had
my first my first kid I learned pretty quickly that he would he would break something even like maybe two years ago, he broke something. Now I'm so upset right now the only way for me to feel better if I slap them on the ash or yell at him. When I do that I feel better about myself. I can I can you know I can breathe. Yeah, and easier for the rest of the night. But I don't really do anything for the kid. And he's not he didn't learn his lesson. He just got traumatized for a moment. And he's gonna keep on running around like, mindlessly and brainlessly as he as he is because he's too he doesn't understand anything. So how I go by this is really whether I am going to do something
that's going to serve me or am I going to do something that's going to serve Him? And it's just that choice I'm going to make at that moment. Serving myself is easy, and then I can frame it in a way that makes it seem as if I'm serving Him and that way I'm even that's even a sin over a sin. So I'm doing something that's self serving, and I'm lying about it that I did it for him. I'm just telling him no, you're not. You're just you just relieve that stress by a little bit. Yeah, I just told you not to do that a second ago you did, but they don't know if you understand or not. So how you go about these things is your choice. If you understand this I took Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. Esta did you
do it right? What happens? You're welcome. You perfect the way you do you do it right. And this kid benefits and maybe you don't relieve your stress immediately immediately. But what should relieve your stress at that moment is what the IEA said is that your DS were perfected to you for this welfare. Rubicam, your sins were forgiven. And may that be enough constantly it goes lesion for you may not make that make up for for the fact that you didn't relieve stress immediately at that moment, and know that Allah subhanaw they perfected your deed and forgive your sins. I want you to think about that every time you try and
rectify or correct. Any situation that you see to be wrong or or buckling, okay. We're going to read number 72 and 73 One more time, and then I'll explain because either the two last eyes of the sutra and they're by far number seven
It was probably one of the most important verses number 73 is just a continuation of it, it's attached to it so it's just a follow up in for you in order for you to achieve and I ended it with that like so in order for you to whereas there's something missing in that sentence a sentence is not complete because that was done in the first sentence. Okay, so I'll restate and show the number 72 The final verses of surah and I'll explain the importance that exists within it we learn him in a che on your body
Bismillah Manuel Rahim
Dallas word he will be well gee
they been a mean a sharp on I mean
we're hemella in
in hookah now volume and your hula
hula hula Munna 15 Munna
To Allahu Allah, meaning Nina.
Lot of food or washing.
indeed we have offered the trust. And as I said last time, the word lamina. If you were to look up the books at the theater, you're going to find so many different interpretations of this word. Meaning I it's rare to even find tomb of a city who agree on what the word actually means. They differ on the understanding of this word so heavily that I even find it hard to give to say that the majority opinion is this, it's almost impossible for you to do that. I'm going to give what I think it is, but to say what the logic is, or what the majority opinion among scholars is, is almost impossible because it's they have so many different opinions on what this actually means. Their
opinions are similar in some ways, and quite different than others. But that is the actual linguistic meaning of a man is the trust the thing that you're going to be entrusted with,
without identifying what it is. Now Allah subhanaw taala wants to remind you that Allah subhanaw taala could have identified it here and ended this whole thing you could have ended it ended the discussion and a difference of opinion among scholars by just saying what it was, but he didn't. So there's a Heckman him not doing this a panda with me, he chose not to do it. He left it for your own imagination. Think about it, if you say if you read through it.
And when you're stood the paragraphs and chapters that I talked about, they understood what you're what the Sunnah is trying to tell you that it's going to be hard to obey Allah commands, the power is going to be hard to submit, but you still have to do it, whether the difficulty is social or personal or psychological or physical or financial, whatever the difficulty is all these examples. Whenever you look at the prophets, I mean all the difficulties that he had, he had personally and his wives had and the people were dying around him. It will be difficult and distressful in many situations but you're still going to have to follow the highest isn't following it. Trusting that
and accepting that is what makes you muslim, is what identifies your faith and your religion.
So when you understand that from the student, all these examples, it's not difficult to comprehend why Allah Subhanallah put this beautiful and very, very generic and important in the Sunnah specifically
you are given the trust that was offered to Smls will all bulgy by was offered to the cosmos and the earth in the mountains everything that is huge within the eyes of the human being the human being that looked up one day and saw sky and earth and mountains all around him and he thought wow, this is huge and humongous there's all these great things bigger than us stronger than you more worthy than you and I were offered the amount and they said no further you know yeah militant No, we will not carry it and I'll give it to someone else. Why shuttling them in her and they were scared of it right so it's not just that they didn't want to carry it no they're scared like we don't want to
carry please does so it's not like we don't want it doesn't know is it no please not us. Look for someone else's different way of of refusing something that refusing something very 90. You don't want it for a reason that is self serving or you don't want it because you're just scared of it.
Here's something I don't know if I can deal with it, it's too much for me. Why struggling? I mean, I'm scared of this, I can do this. Well hammer the hell inside. And the human being was was the one who carried it.
In no kind of aluminum Jehoiada. Indeed, as he's carrying carried it, he's been truly very ignorant
and very oppressive. me a lot of mistakes. And he's been quite ignorant in the way he's looked at it so far.
So what is this,
but when you look at the sooner you understand what it is, you are given the very critical choice
whether to obey Allah subhanaw taala. And submit or not isn't that the theme of the cluster of students that we're going to read, the theme is submission and obedience. Looking at it from possibly almost from every possible angle. The first angle is when things are really hard. That's what really counts by the way, it really counts when it's hard to see easy to follow commands that are easy. So I'm not sure how much we get for that, and sha Allah subhanaw taala will reward us for it. I mean, Inshallah, even if they're easy, but when they're difficult, that's where it really counts, because that shows character, and it shows commitment, and it shows true submission. So when
he used to hear you say, you've been given that that critical is the ability you can choose, most creatures can't.
Every other creature by the weekend, every other living thing and nonliving thing just fall low his rules, the laws of the universe, the Earth will continue to orbit around the Sun following the
electromagnetic, magnetic and gravity fields and all the other large and smaller
laws that govern the movement of these bodies, and these masses, they will continue to do so. At no point will the earth say You know, I'm tired, I'm going to spin the other way.
Doesn't happen, the sun will continue to orbit around the center of the galaxy, whether it likes it or not, the galaxy will continue to orbit around the center of the cluster of galaxies that it is a part of, and so on so forth, every thing that you see, will continue to do whatever job it was created to do, following the laws of the universe that govern it, nothing objects to that, nothing else, actually, if they did, then science would be a useless term. Because science is based on the fact that we observe something happening so many times. And then we take from that observation, these observations of law, and we use that law and other things, and it works. And we were able to
come up with inventions and change the the quality of our lives is because everything else does its job. And it's quiet about it. Every single teacher that lives today, besides the human being lives within an ecosystem, and they do their job, they eat, they reproduce, and they try to improve the adapt to their environments, and they try to be a part of an active part of whatever system they're a part of. That's all they do. I've never seen an ostrich staring at the sky wondering why it was created and what is going to do next. I don't know. I've never seen a depressed tiger that needed do I need
someone to wake him up in the morning and give him a purpose to live, they all just get up and they know what they're going to do with them to continue to do it.
The only depressed animals are the ones that we put in zoos. By the way, everyone else is pretty happy.
We're the only creature that has that unique ability to say no, to be given any options that are critically different See, animals.
I'll give you an example just to understand what I mean. Because you may think, well, that's not accurate. But let me tell you exactly me. If you have a healthy animal, a healthy animal that is hungry.
And you offer it the food that is is that is a part of its diet 10 times out of 10 it elite it 10 times out of 10 it will never not eat it if it's healthy, and it's hungry, is going to eat it every time. Every single time it doesn't do it, then scientifically, we know that either the food is something's wrong with it, or it is ill meaning it's lost appetite because of an illness. That human being not necessarily for example, you fast, you don't do it, you're healthy, you're hungry. That is exactly what you want for your diet. Right, you can smell the Big Mac from a mile away, you're extremely hungry, but you will not do it. Because of a choice that you've made. You're the only
mammal or the only creature on the planet that has these abilities to actually make these critical choices, in terms of things that fall under their instinct, or as a part of what they were their earthly and will not do it. You're the only creature so that is a very very heavy thing that we were entrusted with.
Because every other creature regarding what Allah subhanaw taala commanded it and created it to do is doing it and I'm telling Allah you said the hula hula men very similar to humans. What title sofort go long for the early masala who wanted to be how would you not say that everything exalts Allah subhanaw taala and I'm telling Allah Yes, you do that who Memphis Emirati will do a Shem so we'll do we'll come up with everything prostrates to Allah for me
She will be handy when I can let have Communitas be home and everything is exalting Allah subhanaw taala. You just don't, you don't understand there has to be meaning. It's not something that you can hear, or you can witness, but they're all doing this via everything is exalting their Lord everything. There's a synchrony and harmony within the universe. We're the only noise that is just not very, we're the only thing that's making noise that's ruining this symphony we're ruining because we don't we don't always follow the command. On the Day of Judgment, every creature that is left despises the human being. And because this human being even today in the hadith is maybe some
bluff in the Hadith, but
you're accustomed to narrating the meaning of it quite often,
is that the sky will call upon Allah and say, Even Adam, like why would
you even Adam is eating you only from the wealth that you offer him and he's worshipping someone else? Down The Ultimate Guide? Are you allow me to fall on Him? May just destroy this fella home? No. And then the mountains say I don't believe now. Let's click through the same thing. You're up Danny. Yeah. And he ultimately him, let me crumble upon them. The Earth asked us about if you can open up and swallow us in the seas as if it can drown us. Why? Because the way look at this, what is this? They're disobeying you. What are they doing? Do they not know who you are? Do they not understand what your commands mean? Do they not? Why are they doing this? Why are they going about
their lives as if you don't matter your job? Why is every other creation in universe that is so massive that we can't even be identified in our galaxy can't even see forget about our Yani
our planet, or our own homes or entity as people, we are so skinny and small, yet we're no, you will say you will say no to him. Subhanallah, which I know you will object to his command, and we'll go along our lives living as if he didn't command anything in the book doesn't exist in the prophets and the Prophet and prophets before him. I didn't give much thought to him. He never walked the earth and never gave it were never explained what he said. So the other creatures are looking at us saying, Why is why why are they doing this? And the hadith is, I think, is have some credibility, because it talks about the same three creatures that we have here. And
they were offered the trust, sky, the earth and the mountains. And they said, no, no, no, no, we can't You can't do this, yada, yada, we want to obey you with no other option. We don't want option V because you never know you make make that mistake. So you need just one option. So we always obey you. And then you and I were given the option to obey or to disobey. Now,
how are you? How would you say you're doing so far?
know how to live, if you were to judge yourself, how are you doing so far? Are you making more good choices and and bad choices? Have you, you follow this command as much as you can, when you when you don't? When you make the mistake and you need and you turn your back? You immediately find a way to fix it. Do you immediately go back and say no, no, I have to be if you're struggling with this command, at least inside do you do what the shooter has taught us to do is knowing that there is no option that we follow his commands. If I don't tell you we accept that this is what he said. And we do it. And even if you end up making the mistake inside, you know that I should have done that. And
I shouldn't have done what I did. Or are you moving away from that you're making the hideout haram and the Haram has been playing around with with his own command Subhanallah, which I You're not accepting them anymore, what are you doing, which is that there's a trust and earn the trust. You can be entrusted with many things in your life. But this is the trust. You're entrusted with your health, with your wealth with your youth, in the future, with your wife, with your children, with your spouse, with your siblings, with your parents, with your job with the people that work under you with all these things are entrusted. But the trust
is the fact that you get to choose whether you say you're a PA that I will do it or in your heart
or even in your words or in your actions you don't. Now you can understand how this tool is so relevant. It looked at the psychological problems to have the head under the visor look like the prophets. I sent him for a moment in his head said well, but yeah, we're duction nurse and for a moment you feared people when you should have feared Allah subhanho wa Taala and you're sending all these words. What are you doing which is it?
Which is because that's basically the performance the final evaluation of it all? Is that here it was the trust show me how you dealt with this. Show me how you what you did with what I trusted you with? I trusted you with the ability to say no to me, gentle gentle Allah
on the Day of Judgment is going to make perfect sense by the way if you don't it's not it is not making sense to you now that's okay. You will know PM. Once you see the sky is come
crumbling down when all the stars and the sun and the moon and the earth is completely destroyed.
things left, nothing's left, nothing, nothing that you can identify as left anymore. Now all you have is a book in your hand with a couple, a couple of deeds that you've done. And now Johanna, was being paraded and you can see it, and Jana is right there. And the number of Metallica is so huge that it makes the number of all human beings who ever lived from the beginning of time to the end of time, the 10s of 1000s of billions that live there make lives so puny because there's so many other Malayaka and probably so many other galaxies, and so many other universes that he created around you, with so many other creations that you feel like you're completely irrelevant at that point,
when you stand there. And you're being asked, well, I trusted you with a choice. What did you do? You were like, Oh,
why didn't I?
How did I say no to anything? What was he thinking? Of course, I should have said yes to everything. And then you look at your performance at the trial, you didn't do well with your trust. You often objected, and you often didn't obey and you often didn't submit, then in difficult situations, you the white flag went up and you just went with your with your self interest. If it was difficult financially, you took something that you shouldn't have taken, it was difficult, physically, you ran away, it was difficult socially, you would rather people not talk about you than actually following the last command. It was difficult personally, then you would rather do what's the easier for you
then do what Allah Subhan Allah commanded? Understanding the idea here, which is all the examples of the SUTA which was it? Or was he commanded and you obeyed and submitted, and that was more important because you get to trust you and I have a trust with us. Every human that is born in a few years of his existence is given that trust as well. Yellow shoes, do what you want, and you will function differently. All the other creatures in this world function one way you do differently. That's why we look look what we built them when we've made good and bad, by the way, good and bad. Is there it's just you've been entrusted with everything. How will you use it? This trust was offered to the
sky is the earth and the mountains. They refuse to carry it and they were
dead scared of it. And then you created it, you took it you carried it. However, for the better part, the human being has been oppressive in the way he's used and not has been ignorant in the way he's used it.
This was offered to you for two reasons. Your IV biller whom would have 15 Now I thought you were a machete Kena when machete cut, so that Allah subhanaw taala can punish the hypocrites male and female and a disbelievers male and female. So there's no way for them to say no, you can't find it punish us. Of course they can. I gave you the choice you chose wrong. That was your choice. That was your choice. And now you'll live with the consequences of your choice. If you remember, go back to number nine, even for the number eight. Go back to number eight. Number eight. I remember I recited this, I told you that this will become clear to you at the end of the sewer. I don't know if you
remember that or not go back to the go back to the actual videos of this, you'll find that that is something that
we can think about it for a moment.
So what I said with a husband, I mean that he and me felt calm and we took the pledges of all the profits when the income took it from you. Yeah, Mohamed, when we knew him from Newark, we brought him also a 70 million. I mean, home meter. Unbelievable. We took from a very, very strong pledge a very, very difficult pledge. Why yes, Al Assad Lena unser looking so we can ask under the judgment, the ones who were
who are honest about their honesty, you say you claim to be honest. Correct. We'll be we'll ask you about that honesty. We'll see where you're actually honest. What is what is the truth about that honesty? And what that truthfulness? Were you true, or is it just a claim that you make? So how is that done by giving you the choice by giving the trust by the Amana here? Here's the trust, do what you want, so that you can come You're welcome. I read your book and talk about your honesty and talk about the choices you made. If you made good choices, Ellen was Ellen were tube Allahu La Nina with me now to see the second reason is that Allah Spano repent will grant repentance of the believers
male and female. Of course, you can make mistakes. That's why you use hear the word Toba. You didn't say, well, you're busy. We're going to reward the good ones. You know, we're gonna grant them Toba because of course, you made mistakes. It's not what he's talking about here. Making mistakes are part of the deal. But will you take this trust and treat it with the respect it deserves. And every time you make a choice, you think that I'm entrusted with this, trying to do my best understanding that he commanded never saying no to him, even if I struggle with it. If I make a mistake, I go back to him. So I know that that's how you're supposed to live your life. And if you do that, then he
will grant you, Toba and he will repent, you're going to repentance. But if you don't, you're either going to punish them whenever clean, male and female and we should keep male and female. It's all about the choices you made.
And the fact that you gonna sit there and read them. You're entrusted with ability or freedom of choice, that's a trust. You're free to choose what you want. Just understand that your milk pm you're going to have to live up to your consequences of your choices. The consequences of your choices are going to be your
Is no one will carry the consequences of their choices for you, no one. You can't blame anyone, but yourself. You sit there, we all sit there we read our book. And if they're good choices, then you'll draw just repentance, you'll forgive all the sins that happened on the meantime, and that we made the wrong choices, then punishment is what we deserve. Because that's what we did. We disobeyed, the one who will tell you will see is beyond our ability to find them in his magnificence. And we're gonna feel so forgive me for the use of this where I'm gonna feel so dumb. When we find out that we said no to you, how could I say no to you? What was a thinking? What was a you start to look at
people? And you'll say, What was I doing? Where were you? Were you my friend when you're my brother? When my father went to say something? And people actually start yelling at each other? You'll know piano. Physically, people start yelling, your Why didn't you tell me you didn't? You didn't see me living a life of sin, living far away from Allah, where were you? Why weren't you a part of my life? Why don't you remind me? Why don't you help me because on that day, it's that's all that matters. You're just looking for a way to vent because
it says you were given the choice. And now you have to carry the consequences of it.
So there's no volume, so no one gets treated in any in an ingest manner. Human PM. That's the final I have sorted.
I hope that made sense to everyone hope that was beneficial and Sharma, in the meetings that it carried. It looked at obedience and submission from a very unique angle, probably one of the most unique angles, if not the most unique angle, because I don't know what others do in the Quran that has so many uncomfortable points in a row. Just one story that is hard to tell after the other. I saw it on the faces of the people who listen to me talk about this in the last number of months. All I had to do was bring up the I look up people have to explain it and the faces were just what are you why no one because they're hard to listen to. Because they're either they're hard for you on a
personal level, because you find difficulty following them. Or they're hard for you to accept, because you have a previous bias towards this topic good to begin with. But regardless of how you feel, regardless of whether you agree with what you listen to, or you don't agree, what we're supposed to learn from Swift is that there's never been an option for a believer when Allah subhanaw taala gives a command. If you're a believer, you know, there's no option, you follow His names, his words upon them, and you're not supposed to find distress in it. You're not supposed to find how you shouldn't be difficult. If it's difficult that you need to look at it differently. Do what what a
vicar remind yourself of Allah subhanaw taala Allah to remind because you shouldn't find it hard, because the point of his commands is to bring you ease. That's the whole point of them. You may not accept that right now. Because you're young, you may find it hard right now because you still don't you're not at a point of your life to see it. But the point of his commands when he tells you to pray, he tells you to follow through and tell you that Zina is haram and murderers, haram and Saudi has haram and to waste your life. Yeah, and you're running off trip materialistically we any pleasures is haram and don't do these things is to bring you ease in your life. This is going to
make your life easier. You may not see it now. But if you trust Him, and you believe in Him, there's no option. Just follow it. And by the time you're 30, you'll be oh yeah, that's totally the thing. I have things right now that he tells me to do. It's a pound to add that I struggle with. But I know by the time I'm 40 or 50, Allah Yeah, no, that was the right thing. And just so on and so forth. You just need to trust and know that there's no option just follow. And if it's hard, if it's stressful to look at it differently and still do it. Still do it. Why because you were entrusted with the trust. And then you were given the trust. Do not mess this up.
You're given the trust don't come you're milky, I'm showing that you completely misused it.
You give it back to Allah by the way,
you can get back to trust to Allah, you're gonna lose your milk, do you have freedom of choice, you'll not be fully
when your hands and feet are speaking out and telling the stories of what you did say he's not there.
to a big extent is taken away, you're not fully in control of everything anymore. Now, just like everything else, just like everything else, you just functioning the way you want. You get back to trust, and you're evaluating how you use it. The good news is if you try hard and use it to the best of your ability, he will grant you repentance and you'll find a beautiful, Second Life of just of knowledge and a pleasure and of happiness. And if you don't then you'll find yourself even you even me, we will all find ourselves if we don't worthy of punishment you won't be objecting to it
is a scary thought. But we won't be objecting to the punishment. We're like, Yeah, you gave us the trust misuse that we deserve this. I wish we didn't have to be punished. But yeah, I deserve it. I understand the justice in it. I understand the Yeah, I need the fairness in all this. It's a scary thought. And when you do well you'll find that
because a lot of agile ends I'll end with that being the latter.
Next week and shall we will start restoring reciting with the suburbs with some is very different. It's a mix
Madani so all the data we read recited in revealed in Medina, it has a lot of data in it has a lot of commands or rulings and issues that happened with the sahaba. Xuxa is different. It's a Mackay Surah talks about issues of faith, it talks about issues of belief. It tells us stories of the omen that that came before. So inshallah we'll continue from there. I think we have one minute left. Good. So what I've been doing the last few minutes before you get your like it who wants to go to the bathroom, I think we'll do please do so. But until it's a farmer, what I've been doing is I've been reciting some of the HECM that are called Hickam malapa II the pearls of wisdom that were
written by an author in their secondary, and these pearls of wisdom throughout the last maybe 1000 years or so have been time and time again explained by scholars and looked into deeply because of the beauty that they have. today. I will explain to you the third hikma, we've talked about the first two. The third one is very short. It says to logical him me
as well. So I'll call him now as far as it is, it is a spin off the second pearl of wisdom that talked about you have two roles in life some one role with living in the same life in the logical universe, meaning you have to go in you have to make a living you have to live, you have to follow the laws that govern this life. And you should and when you're doing that you should not ever run away from doing that by saying I want to sit down and make dua and read Quran and I'm not gonna go do my job. And the opposite. There's a part of you that is a part that is invested in the unseen life like when you do that, couldn't this be a hamper on that doesn't really do anything in the
logical and physical universe. And you're required to do both being a Muslim is having the proper balance. When you talk when it's time to pray, you pray, you don't say well, I have to go to my job. When it's time to go to a job, you go to your job, don't sit down and say well, I want to pray yet I want to do No, you do what you need to do at the time that you're asked to do it and having that balance, what makes you a Muslim. A spin off of that is this Heckman, so I'll be calling him having a very strong intention, having a lot of energy and a lot of effort and a lot of hope to do good. And so I put him
down, it doesn't penetrate the high walls of destiny, this is a figure of speech. Meaning if something is destined for you, working really, really hard may not change the outcome. Now, this is a very, very important pearls of wisdom. And if it's misunderstood, it can be used very in a very
harmful way to the person that's listening to it. This is not to say that you shouldn't try your best to achieve something No, you should try your best to achieve what you think is the best thing to achieve. If you can see your goal and if you know your goal is correct that you should try to achieve it. But to understand that if the destiny that is what is predestined for you is that you're not going to get it then if working hard is not gonna it's not gonna get it for you. Meaning you have to accept that, that sometimes you work really hard for something, but you may not get it because that's what Allah subhanaw predestined for you. So this is not this is not to say that you
shouldn't put your effort No, no, you definitely need to put your effort every single time specifically when you can identify your goal. But the idea is you have to have acceptance. If sometimes things don't come through. If sometimes things don't come through the way you want them to come through. He doesn't happen.
Then you need to understand that this is what He predestined for you subhanaw taala. And it's not your fault.
It's not your fault, because technically him because no matter how much effort you put, if it wasn't predestined, you can't you can't get it. See, because some people will try really hard not get something and then blame themselves for the rest of their lives for not doing and if it wasn't destined. It wasn't going to happen. Don't blame yourself. Continue, try your best. But if it doesn't happen, accept and don't live the rest of your life blaming, blaming yourself or blaming others for something except is what I was given, and then move on. You live happier, you live longer, you're much more productive when you do so. You'll be happier and you'll live longer because
you'll have less stress and you'll be much more productive. We'll end with this apocalyptic Shinola
