Maybe you know Muhammad in my early he also have your domain are bad. Today we recite and show the final
goal today inshallah is that we finish, you finish the surah
once and for all I'm not sure how many sessions it turned into I think this is the 18th session or 19th session, I'm not sure which one, which is, which is it I said 16 At the beginning,
that was my estimation when we started, so I'm off by a few sessions, but that, okay, that's pretty normal when he got a very rich, very rich sorta like, there's a lot to talk about. And there's a lot of
lessons to be learned,
you should focus upon
what want to do, the way I'm going to do it is we're going to start reading the final part of the of the surah. And then at the end, when I'm done, I'll do a recap, like I tried to summarize as much as I can, the basic ideas that we that this would have talked about, it is a 10, page surah. So it's a bit long, but I think it's a good exercise for all of us in terms of learning how to read a sewer, that is this lawn, when you read it. That is everything we've read in this halacha specifically has not been over two pages. And a few lines, like the longest one I've read here, I think was from Wilco column, it was a bit over two pages. But that's it. Everything else we read here mean pretty
short. This is a huge difference when you when you study a 10, page surah. There's a lot more that that goes into that. Why? Because the theme of the sutra is usually multi dimensional, and there's a lot of angles that the sword is going to take in terms of looking at it, which just puts a lot of content in the study itself. And and it requires the person who was reading, to be able to keep up with the information and keep up with the idea and have a continuation or continuum of understanding topics and relating them and connecting them all together, which is a bit more tricky when it comes to walking away with a clearer picture. Those who find that difficult or don't end up doing that are
usually the ones who are good at copying and pasting from the Quran or cutting and pasting from the Quran, which is a big problem when you cut and paste from the most half and you just put it wherever you want. That's problematic for those who can use an IRA as an evidence for something that the Iowas never sent to be evidence for it to begin with. And there's a lot of examples like that Yanni. And the point as well. However, if you learn to understand the Quran holistically, and you understand a sutra, in a thematic approach, we're understanding the idea the sutras trying to bring forward then you're less likely to do that, because you understand that no, this story was focused
on 123, what you're talking about is a completely different focus. That doesn't work at all. That's not That's not what the story was talking about. That's not what the students talking about 90, that's your very your way off. And that's and that's usually something that happens quite obvious.
I don't think there are differences when it comes to the thematic approach or that big
meaning meaning if I, if I'm suggesting a theme, or a way of understanding things, or the way to look at it, if somebody has a different point of view shows you it's usually not that deep, the difference of opinion on on the theme is usually not that deep is a slight shift to maybe the idea of the angles a bit shifted. At the end of the day, the way you're going to be able to look at it from a thematic approach, the evidence is going to is going to be what will guide you meaning the what's in the sutra is gonna guide if what I say or the way that I'm presenting it, or the way that this was running doesn't make sense that will be clear to you that this makes no sense at all.
You're just you're talking about something that's not on the eye yet. So basically is going to be there was going to judge this is really is really the presentation itself and the way that's going to be explained rather than just the claim.
Yeah, how can you just avoid their perception? And sometimes they will take something we're not so sure. Yeah, yeah. I think when it when we were talking about the holiday just a bit, it's a bit more complex, I'm talking about those who, because they already crossed a line in their mind, they crossed a line where they are okay, murdering Muslims, like they don't have a problem, saying that your blood is hello for them to take, just because you disagree with them.
From an opinion point of view, like you just because you have a different opinion about showing Islamically that it's okay for them to use force against you it's okay to
that is a choice that is made. And then after that choice is made, they start looking for evidence to support that choice. So it's not really the same thing. They didn't look into the Quran objectively, and come up with this narrative. That's not That's not what happened. And that's an important point to be made here that they didn't look at the Quran and then say, Oh, this is what we think the point is saying, no, no, what happened was they made a choice. They made a decision, it's a conscious decision that we are going to take the route of violence, right. And that is something that is Ramana slimex per second, which goes against the essence of Islam from up in a fundamental
way. They made that choice that they're going to do that and then they start looking looking for evidence. Now if you want to avoid with the halogen avoid making up
Your mind and they're looking into the Quran for evidence for what you made up your mind to avoid doing that avoid saying this is what I think is right. I'm gonna look into content to see if I can prove my point. You can prove any point if you want you're gonna cut and paste from any book not just the Quran, you can read To Kill a Mockingbird and come up with a whole theology from it if you want to cut and paste and find words that yeah, I need this guy said that makes a lot of sense. It's up to you really like reading a book and a holistic Guinee of form and understanding what he's talking about takes an objective approach. That's one thing another thing is that there is you
always need to Islam wasn't born yesterday or the day before. It's been here for 1400 years. Yeah, I need generations of scholars have been around talking about the essence we may disagree with scholars on on branches of faith and Tafseer issues that are more detailed within the deen. But we don't differentiate we don't differ. And we don't
object to the general understanding of what Islam is with the traditional understanding of it. And that's important. What Why did you do when other groups do that are similar, even though they don't they don't cause bloodshed, per se, in what they do is that they break loose from the the traditional understanding of the fundamentals of the deen. Now, it's one thing to have an opinion that is different from the old school. And this is an important I need the topic to think about. It's one thing for me to say in this certain situation, I don't believe is the right fit to and you go against all the traditional schools of thought that's not a problem. This is if you're talking
about a branch of physics, I'm talking about going against the basic way of understanding the deen altogether, the fundamental principles that run that are the essence and the spirit of the deen going against the way Muslims understand it understood it for the last 50 100 years is something that is not No one does. And if you do it, it becomes very clear. And usually it leads either to loss of identity and practice altogether, or to an extreme view that leads to violence and harm and just doesn't it's not compatible with with the diversity of human life. But besides that, it's not it's not too hard. So when you're talking about the Hellenic a bit more complex than that, but but
still, Inshallah, it's very hard for you to do a lot of steps before you end up doing something that the whole issue, there's a lot of steps you'll take before that conscious steps of making up your mind towards most, most of those who are on your part of violent groups have backgrounds, I've long backgrounds. And yeah, I need with either psychological or sociological. They've been through situations they've been through circumstances that have caused them to come up with a certain Yani opinion towards world politics or towards the politics of their country. And then they start searching for evidence within the deen so they can justify what they do. And that's a very different
approach than what we're doing here. Basically, looking at the I tried to look at them one, again, what I'm trying to say is, it's 110 ayat, it is 10 pages long, right? Seeing the bigger picture takes, you have to step back quite a bit. And keep in mind all the ideas and all the themes so you can understand what it's talking about. And that's a bit more challenging, when you compare it to understanding trying to understand the concept of food loss of food loss, or is it two lines, three yards, but he said it's easier because he's right there is the bigger picture is not gonna just step back too far away to see it. However, here it's a bigger, it's a bigger challenge. Alright, so we're
gonna do is gonna start reading and shallow, the final, the summary or the end of the story of the hajima. And then after that, and he will do a recap. And if time is time,
if we're allowed to, based on time, right, so we recited up to a number 99. Now I know where where the Hakima begins is in the middle of the area, whenever you go to school, that's where the anyway, that's where the end of the story actually begins. That's where the shift of events happens. Everything that we've talked about so far, a little Korean story is over, we got to see the local domain. In his story, we'd like to see five nations, right, the local nine is the representation of the nation that we're supposed to be the nation that has the values and the principles that has the wealth has the knowledge that all leads to having power, that power, once you have all this power
comes with a responsibility of spreading clean, and we got to see the company walking around the Earth, literally searching for people who are in need of help, and then offering it to them whether it's the help that they need. The aid is a matter of values and principles, whether the aid is Guinee wealth and materialistic, whether the aid is actually protection and knowledge or whatever it is. The learning is there to offer it. We saw it for other nations we saw huge Jewish, the nations that are corrupt, that spread only shuttle, the opposite of welcoming are only there to harm. They have power. We don't know what values they have. They have value, they must be very bad values,
corrupt values, they may have some wealth as well. And they use that to harm we got to see a nation that has a lack of values and principles. He didn't have Allah they were oppressive. They weren't. They didn't. They didn't have the ideas. Straight. We got to see people who were very poor who materialistically and from a wealth perspective had nothing. We got to see the final group of people who were just very ignorant. They had numbers, they had money, they just didn't know how to use it. They weren't didn't educate themselves. And I think it's always worthy of saying who we're supposed to be.
And then take a look, who are we today? Right? I think we're the closest because we are used to the final group of people. And we don't like really that much well, so we don't like ideas, but we do like is the knowledge, the practical knowledge that takes all these things and puts them into practice, and it has some level of organization together within it. And I think that's a fair, fair way of looking at it.
After the recording, they did the favor for this last group of people, he helped them, he taught them how to protect themselves. We're talking now about who made the movie about George, we left them on that day, to fight amongst each other. Yeah, mood just comes from the idea of waves. So you can do so many of them, you could see them when they were fighting and yelling at one another and disputing, it was like waves going back and forth, they'll come in and the people who had finished building the barrier, stood on the mountains on the height tops of the mountains and look down and you could see waves going back and forth, because they were coming to read Jani the city and they
couldn't do it anymore, because of the barrier. We're talking about the home you're at. And we'll do fi Bob. And after that point, the SUTA flips. And it goes into a very deep
number of verses that talk about your milk. And what's coming your milk piano. And the way that it looks at it kind of takes all the elements of the SUTA here and there and puts them into the ayat. So that you continuously think because what wraps all this together. The idea, the money, the wells, the power, what puts them all together, what puts them all together is a clear vision of what's at the end of this road.
At the end, in order for us to actually do any of this in order for us as a society as a civilization, as a community as a population, to go out there and get what we need to build our societies to bring forward to bring to ourselves the ideas to make sure that we have the wealth to master the knowledge and to turn it into power that will speak to ourselves and to others, we have to have a clear destination at the end, this road that we're on, we have to see where it's leading to. And the thing is, you can't see what's going to lead it's a straight road, and you can see exactly where it's going to lead you to. And this is what sort of Kapha kind of brings up, this is
where you're going. And this is what's going to happen at the end, never ever lose sight of that. As long as that is clear to you, you're going to be okay, you're gonna continue to go to, you're going to be able to continue to do what you're supposed to be doing. Because it's not going to happen. Most likely, it's not gonna happen within your lifetime. You know, acquiring all these things. And build is not probably not going to happen within your lifetime, probably going to take a couple of generations for this to fix. But may it start with you, may you be the person who actually pioneers this or brings it forward or revives it, or at least works towards it. It may not happen during your
life, but your destination should be clear to you, you see where the end of the road is knowing that that's where you're going. It's not just here to build the 90 the building this society building the strength within it, bringing the idea that wealth, the ID, the knowledge and the power has to have a goal. What is the goal? Or is it just a
pyramid scheme? Do just keep on doing it to get more? And then what what's the goal of this? Oh, there's a goal isn't. There's a head of there's something big waiting at the end of this road? Or else it turns into what are we doing? So why become strong? I help other people become stronger, they become stronger than other? And then what? And then what happens? Where are we going? Okay, hi, you're in Tasha Villa now, the goodness and all the good ethics are in good values. And good practices are are abundant in the world today. And it's how people are living, and then what and then we wonder what then gender, then Nikita comes along, that puts everything puts all this into
perspective, then it becomes real. It may just sound just stories. Basically, I told you four stories. It's all stories now. But there's a moment where all this is going to become very, very real. When you see that a sub Yanni coming to all the individuals of these stories, without it cough are going to be put for the exam and the King who tried to kill them and the people who later on believed in them. When you see the two men in the story of I need the agenda team and they are put for a sub when you see Musa Ali's them and I needed that and you shine. And when you saw he put for his sermon when you see the coralayne and the people who followed him and the different nations that
he spoke to, they will all go for his time and this will become very real at that point. And then you are someone who was given the chance to benefit from all of that and learn how to do things will also be put for exam as well, which is the point of the final number of ions. So if you're going to Sharla from a number 99 with alakina As I said the ending of this sort of starts right in the middle of it and we'll go from there. We'll be laying him in a shape on
Bismillah R Rahman Rahim
Allah whom you met at the movie BAM
one of you so Risa Germanna, whom Gemma
yo man easy Linkous eating
lazy Nick net you fee repo in the country
what can your stampli una
cough a sore and then the horn was blown. We're blown into the horn whenever you've got a sore
and the transitions are so quick that it almost hits you like the point of it like it was Subhanallah the the goal of being like that is this very sudden switch. It's not Oh, it's not Oh, it's not even going to start in a different area. This switch is going to happen right in the middle of the area. It's like you're seeing huge and Jammu Juna fever and they're fighting amongst each other and we're victorious and it worked out and then Novikova floor
like that. Right away I was blown into the horn for Jim I know whom Jim and everyone was brought together. Everyone was gathered everyone but Jim I know whom who was whom everyone. Everyone you read about? You included the vagina whom Gemma is going to be that quick. is going to be very sudden, he said we're gonna kind of say it. Well in them or Elmo, her and Darby. They ask you about the Day of Judgment. Knowledge of that is with my Lord.
I usually highly refer to her in who is the only one who will bring it forward and the only one who knows its time and will bring his time forward.
It is a heavy matter both in the heavens and on earth to come in. It will only come to you suddenly, it will be a sudden thing. Some generations. The hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam talked about the first
and only when the NEF when the blowing the horn. It's like a wave right sound. So this wave moves and takes the light and everyone just falls for the whole team the photo
fire for our Raju locomotor Isla de Falla, your blue goo ha.
Man, we'll be picking up Yeah. And he will be taking something from the sun, the ball in front of him to eat,
taking up to his mouth, and it won't reach the mouth. Right? For that enough cartoon? What did you learn yesterday, you're on failure to funny whether you're biani whether you're studying, and two people are trying to buy someone something and someone's trying to sell something they're talking about, and they neither buy it nor sell it nor agree to anything. What's that enough cartoon? Well, Roger, why don't we learn in our party he phileo blue who Daraa who and a man is walking home with some milk, he doesn't make it home for you and for who will reduce to how the who follow you.
And then after will start and a man or someone is he has a 90 a basin or something and he's and there's a hole in it. And he tried to fix the hole and he has it already the the cement or whatever he's using or the material and you're gonna put it just he doesn't do it doesn't finish close, then
suddenly, there's no, there's no warning, I need warning blue, there's no nothing, you're gonna try a few times. So you can learn how to do it not going to be given any two weeks in advance. Nothing, nothing's gonna happen, it's going to be very sudden, you're gonna be wobbling through your life normally, trying to eat taking a sandwich before it comes to your mouth. It's in your head, just want a bite? No, I was done. Done, put it down. We're done. We're finished. One of you have a sewer immediately. And that's the whole point of this.
Of the sewer of this ending of this sort of starting like that, right? So suddenly in the middle of an area. Why? Because that's how it's going to be.
Why? Why? Why is total Caf specifically, you don't find that too often. And I like that, because certain kind of talks about a long term plan of building a society, this takes generations, you need to, you need to bring in new chair, the idea is you have to you have to have a list of principles and values that you believe in, you have to discuss it amongst yourself, you have to revise it every once in a while like I did. This is gonna take a long time. This means every five years you have to come back again, what are our principles? Are they still valid today? Are they still working? And then you have to be working on the financial aspect of building a society you need to make sure that
there is knowledge, most theoretic and practical, and then you have to have power that will help yourself and others. It's a long term plan. It's a lot of work. A lot of people are involved in this. They're probably meetings every couple of weeks in Africa, and people are talking about stuff and talking about the next thing we'll know if you call the sooner
it will end immediately.
immediately all of it will end you're a boy because it was never about the guy. Just do your job subhanho wa Taala could have whatever he wanted happening anytime he wanted. Just do Just do your job. Your job is that process your job is working on these elements, focusing on them living for them and investing your time for them. Just do it. It will end as suddenly as it started it will be very very sudden when it all when it all finishes. There's no warning signs nothing's waiting nothing's gonna come in you know it's just gonna happen. Just live the process just go through it just do your job. Windows is awful super fun jam. I know jam and that everyone then you're standing
there. It's so sudden you're like what? We were just we were just talking about were we going to meet next week or something? Didn't we? Just like text that we're gonna meet on nine? Whatever day and then we didn't? What's happening? What day is it today? Is it is it time? Should we meet now or is it close? It's done
don't worry but just put it down. But you're vicious. Okay, just just put it down. I don't need you to finish it. You thought I needed you to finish it. You thought that I needed you to all to do to do all of this. I was in need of this. It was a necessity to meet no it wasn't I just want you to do your job. Just prove that you can do this so you can spend the time and spend the effort and then it will end suddenly whenever you have a sore for Jim I know whom Jamal and then the next quick well I don't know agenda Musa
You'll be very lucky if you're in the middle of Paris. Charlotte ends and you're praying God You're very lucky guy that happens. Well, I don't know. Jahannam and then we presented Jahannam yo made in on that day little caffeine
for the disbelievers it'll be a parade.
It will be a parade hula hula Selim you w Jahannam
Jahannam as brights on the Day of Judgment with Island upon Jahannam is 70,000 chains. Each chain has 70,000 of his angels, dragging it and keeping it down containing it as it is paraded in front in front of the people that could go home so it does not devour all humanity. Why humanity has been very very just obedient to Allah subhana wa Tada for other creations that is very foreign. You're disobeying Allah.
Why? You're not even that strong.
Like you're not that big. I don't understand what what made you so
a risk taker that point where you're, you're willing to disobey Allah subhanaw taala you're very smart. You and it looks at the human being Look at this. Look at these guys.
Just being Allah. But we're good. But no, no, you disobeyed him at one point, didn't you say Allah subhanaw taala beforehand you repent he accepts you? Are their creations are like why would you disobey Him to begin with, they probably don't understand that because they don't have the same any experience. But that's that's that's you having them. It's an it's a parade, wow.
presented on that day for those disabilities out of law will be a presentation a parade you stand there, you won't be standing up straight, you'll fall to your knees,
you won't be able to look at it directly look at from the corner of your eye. Because it's just too scary. May Allah subhanaw taala preserve all of us from seeing it. See, I mean, surely you're not standing there on that day. So you don't have to be you don't have to be anywhere near. You don't even have to hear how Sisa you don't even have to hear this, the hisses that are coming from from this tank of pain. You're not gonna you're not gonna be there at all, you're gonna be somewhere else. But if you're not, then this is what's going to happen. So you un*able sore, we bought into the horn, everyone will be assembled, and then there'll be paraded. And you are where you are. And
you are doing what you're doing. And it's up to you basically, from that point on. Were you a part of what this beautiful sort of explained?
Do you understand the concept study, then well, and then start executing the plan and working towards the that when this happens? You're ready? You have done your part? Are you going to wake up on the day of judgment to find that you didn't do anything and it wasn't clear to you and you and you missed out? And you're like why I was told to read this to her like every Friday? Every if I just made me just one Friday write it? Well, I would have I wouldn't be here. Just one Friday Subhanallah all it took was maybe one I lived for how many Fridays? I don't know.
It's 52 per year times, by whatever
years you're gonna live 200 300 Fridays? You couldn't not once, not once? Did you read it and read it properly? Subhanallah I feel very scared when I think about that aspect of it. Because it's like he you have no excuse. And hold on. You didn't reach out to me if I told you to read it every single Friday, not one of those Fridays you actually read it or understand it or practice what it was within it. What is the excuse on that day? Yes. What if you didn't memorize
reading? That's okay. You don't have to memorize it. The concept isn't memorization is it's comprehension, understanding and then practice. If you memorize it, you're more likely to be able to understand it right?
You can read it from your head whenever you want to, but you don't have to memorize.
Now, the second day after that explains who are the caffeine? Just in case we have to Oh, like we're good. We're not caffeine, right? Well, I don't know. Johanna may or may the little caffeine, the word cow has two meanings by the way in the Quran, either it means someone who disbelieved or it means someone who was not grateful has two meanings. And it's used kind of interchangeably within the Quran sometimes like this, something like that based on the context. So here is not 100% clear, right? So the I after it explains, a Latina Canada, you know whom theory BA in nondegree, those whose eyes were in a status of being covered, wherever my remembrance was presented, whenever
someone reminded them of Allah, whenever the word of Allah or the or the mention of Allah came up of their Lord, it was like their eyes were covered, what kinda is definitely on SM and it was like they couldn't hear. He's like you're talking to someone who can't hear or see or hear. You're saying and they don't, they can't see what you're saying. They can't hear what you're saying.
Allah, no, I know. I don't want to talk to someone else. I'm not interested. Again, money, you need to withdraw and undecorated. Something's covering the eyes. They're not blind, nor are they deaf. These people were not neither blind or deaf, however, they could not see and they could not hear. Have you ever met people like that before? Were you ever like that at a certain point in your life? Of course.
It was after that. Any oblivion and indifference. Indifference is the only disease I'm quite sure that is incurable. Now, some philosophers differ with me and they say stupidity is incurable. But I think that it's not stupidity. I think it's indifference. I think indifference is incurable. You cannot fix someone who's indifferent. Someone who does not care. Someone doesn't care about something you can do anything from philosophy doesn't care. He's already made that decision. I do not care. There's nothing you say that can make me care. And it's very hard. You see it a lot. You'll go through life and you'll you have to make some hard decisions in your life. Right? Living
around people who don't care. Those who kind of die you know, whom feed the pot and and decree when it came to their members of Allah subhanaw taala their eyes were covered and they could not hear you have to make a decision. Are you going? Are those are the people? Are those going to be the people you spend your time with? Are those going to be the people that invest in as close friends? Are they are they going to be a part of your close circle or not? If they are, that is very, very likely that you're going to become like them. Or if they're lucky, they'll become like you and it's really hard. We can't just ignore that we can bring them to the dean and John John
May Allah guide everyone who shall it's not the easiest thing though. But you need you need to keep that in mind that very, very easily. If you surround yourself with indifference, you can become indifferent.
And this is the definition of caffeine here. This is Lavina Canada you know me is defining what he means by caffeine. Just in case you're gonna say caffeine you mean by those who don't c'est la. vie. C'est la ilaha illa Allah listen to the iPod is Alladhina Canada, you know, homefield, HIPAA and decree those who want to be reminded of Allah who couldn't see him they couldn't hear. Think about that. Take it out with you, as you go out, walk away. Allah Subhan. Allah defines his term, I didn't define the term, I didn't tell you. This is what the term meant. Isn't. This is an idea. And the most part is what he says to anodyne is how he's defining the term caffeine when he talked about the
parade, where he talked about your milk, gamma coming, suddenly everyone being assembled, and then they watch them in front of them. Who are these people? These are them, the ones who are indifferent. And I find it really interesting that he chose to panel to talk about those who are indifferent. Because isn't that exactly the problem that we have today? Because when we talked about suicide, when we went through all the concepts, we talked about the stories and how we need these building bricks to start our society. Everyone's got the questions like, Well, why don't we get things done? It's easy. Look at this, we have exactly what we need to do. We're all like minded, why
can we get things done is indifference. Brothers and sisters is that's all it is. It's just a difference. We don't care enough. There's not enough care. There's just not enough of it, either within individuals or a cumulatively accumulative li within the society. We just have too many people who are in difference. Just don't care or the level of care that we have in our hearts is just not big enough. There's just not enough there's maybe some care is just not enough. It's not there's not enough of it. Isn't that the actual problem? The problem of us just not. I'm just not taking it seriously enough. That's why we need to find caffeine here. He did not speak of disbelief.
He did not speak of it. Those who did shut up. No, he's talking about something different. He's talking about those who are just indifferent. So Allah subhanaw taala, this dilemma?
Exactly. Exactly. We move on to number 102 insha Allah. Hi, Siva Lavina. Kefir, a death either
worry buddy Dooney a we
didn't Jehan family anally feeding
those who did suffer after Allah subhanaw taala define the term within the ayat that we are reading. This is an important part of understanding the sooner he defined the term. He didn't have to define the term you could have left it and then we could have understood understood it that way. We understand it all the time in the Quran. However, he did define the term here. He said this, I'm talking about these ones, the ones who are you know whom video what kind of lions typically the ones who were indifferent, who did not want to listen, we did not want to hear to what degree I do not know. But this is what he's talked about. Then he has the burden of the unicameral then those who
committed to cover did they think Did they expect that my servants a buddy, we're going to choose alliances besides me. I've actually been living in a cathedral, and yet a birdie mean Dooney Olia what it means is, those who didn't believe that they think
that the servants of Allah eBuddy the actual servants of Allah subhanaw taala those who believe in Him would choose earlier a lot allies or choose their alliances in someone been doing it besides Allah subhana wa Tada is not asking those who disbelieve whether they need they can take allies besides with whom are they bad? Whom are servants? No, no, is saying, Did you think if you were someone who's indifferent, did you think that my true servants would look for allies anywhere else but within me within Allah subhanho wa taala. It is an important and this is kind of strengthens what I was telling you. If you are someone who is not indifferent, who does understand what Allah
subhanaw taala has put in place, you want to be a part of it, then you're definitely not going to choose your allies, anyone else but Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who stand by him, did the kuffaar seriously think that might be bad, we're going to take allies besides me. They're not going to take of course my sermon Sorry, my bad are definitely going to take allies within me for myself for Allah subhanaw taala for that for my service. But the kofod didn't, they weren't sure they didn't know. They thought that wasn't needed. They thought that probably wasn't going to happen because they're indifferent. They don't care. They don't care. Not something that is not interesting
to them. It's very, very important.
is setting the bar for you. Who is your who are your allies? I'm not again, it's not political here. None of this is political. This is all personal choices. This is just day to day, issues of life. Who are your allies? Who are those whom you stand by? And whom stand by you? What are your choices when it comes to those who you actually spend your time with? And hope to be with you'll Milgram who you're looking for? Who do you work with? Who do you can find and Who Who are they have a high sibilla The Anika photo Cafaro the disbelievers actually think yeah, definitely the worry, buddy. mean doing the Olia that makes servants would take anyone else. I mean, as an ally between besides
me know, in accidental Johanna lil Katharina Newsela indeed, We have prepared Jahannam further disbelievers wasn't it? I mean, it was it. I mean, the word unusual if you if you're driving in the Middle East knows what it means a motel.
It's a large. So when he says I said no Johanna Medill, caffeine and Newsela. I mean, this is going to be where they're going to spend the rest of some time. This is where their destination lies. This is not a place where they're going to be moving on from this is where you're going to come. This is where the reception is waiting for you. You will have a reservation at this place. Whether you have the villa there's a place waiting for you once you enter once you come Yes Your name is gathered and we have you on the list. This is where you're going in I said we have prepared Jahannam further caffeine again within the within the definition of the ayat themselves within what the when the
verses has defined Kufa here in this in this surah Newsela as a motel as a lodging as a final destination as a place where they're going to spend the rest of their days as Allah subhanaw taala cinema
big bill Serena Allah
Walesa, you feeling duniya
whom you seen elfin?
Can levena Can fellow be to be him one oh II
Jessa Jahan Nemo Bhima CAFO?
do you also leave? who's who?
Tell them how you're gonna be oh come? How about I let you know? How about I give you some information? Would you like to hear about that's how the this is what the figure of speech means Hold on a bucum Would you like to know
about those whose deeds are nothing but loss for them mean the most lost will deeds, the deeds that are going to cause them to lose more and more, or their deeds did nothing to them, but cause them to lose more but upset enough? Those who did things in their lives, but what faded only caused them to lose to be at the end of the of the of the line? Or in the lowest of of statuses? Do you like? Would you like to know about them? There's what the student does. Allah subhanaw taala will use it's not a rhetorical question, but it is how about you hear about them? I'm gonna take a moment and find out about those are their Ahmed Studien will take them to the lowest of low, and it will be a complete
loss for them what they did.
Even you think about it for a moment, yeah, I think I think that's worth knowing. I think it's worth knowing who who those who the asset owner are, who are the ones whose deeds didn't didn't do anything for them only caused them to have more loss. Because when you think about it, if you've done things in your life, you're hoping that what you did is going to bring you forward is going to allow you to progress except here last Saturday, and it was it was just the whole thing was a was a lose lose.
We did a lot. And then it was a complete loss. So who are these people? Again, it's all definitions. If you see a livina he's defining terms for us. So we know what we're talking about. Lavina Melissa, you whom Phil hated dunya. Those, Milan is when to string or got lost? Or was not purposeful. So are you home? Psi is a very important term. It's in the Quran a number of times. And it always refers to someone who's doing something in the long run. Someone has a long term plan, someone who's moving towards a goal he's driven, he's motivated, he knows where he's going. That's called Site well liaison in Sani Illamasqua. That's why you don't only get what you do, you get what you intend to
do. So you get your intentions, you have a plan, you're working towards it, you didn't achieve it, but you'll get everything that you were going to get had you actually achieved it. So you're trying to memorize the Quran, you have a plan for it every day, you memorize five pages, you've been doing it for three, four years now or five, five lines, and then you pass away before it's done. You come your meal piano and you've memorized the whole thing. Why? Because that's your site, you're working, you're actively working towards a goal, you get the edge or you get the reward for the whole site. That's the concept of sites a very important word in the Quran. Iman is a deed just a deed is an
action. It's a simple term. So I know there's there's a goal, you're working towards something, the less Are you home.
Their goals, what they were working towards, was a loss was wrong. It went went astray. It wasn't within Allah subhanaw taala his vision it was not according to Allah subhanaw taala is commands more or less, are you gonna feel higher to dunya in this in this lonely life? Well,
no, well homie is a boon. And the home USA
and they think, and they thought throughout the whole time, that they were doing it well, that they were doing the right thing. This is a very scary ayah in the Quran is a very, very scary, it's a very, very important that we take a moment to think about this one at the end of fetal calf and it brings for the trouble here is the goal. Not the product yet. We'll come to that in a second. Yeah, you're right. So because we have to define where the issue is here. He starts by saying let me tell you about luxery in America, the ones who everything that was a complete loss. They did a lot but it was a total loss for them. Who are these God is telling me about them. They're the ones their
lifelong goals what they work towards in their lives but Lola it was a complete loss it was wrong and there was a stray for it went away from from my from my guidance and throughout this whole process. They thought that they were doing the right thing you're seeing that their craft was was being was being perfected that they were doing it right whether it be in a cafe or will be to you know, be him when he called him for hobby, but those are the ones
Who just believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala the signs of Allah yet you're being worried coffee and and meeting Allah subhanaw taala so they disbelieved. They just believed in Allah and the signs of Allah and meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala for hobby. All the deeds that they did were became worthless because of it. Following up with a homeo Malkia. Matias. At first they were not given any weight on the day of judgment and the Day of Judgment, everything they were given those No, wait, I did all these things. Yeah, but they're weightless. Like, it's like bubbles.
The problem here
isn't just doing something or not doing it. The problem here is who are you doing it for? Why were you doing it? What was the motive? What, what moved what, why, who you're doing it for, based on whose guidance were you doing? This is a very, very important point. Why because so many people have gave us this, I don't know. Listen to it again, you'll you'll probably find yourself quite motivated after finishing to cough, I hope you are reading, reading about how if we if we have a number of concepts and values that we can agree to a charter of principles that we can hold on to, if we can work towards bringing in wealth and knowledge, then we will have a strong society that can spread.
It sounds awesome. But you see all that, if it's not done for him, it's worthless.
All these all that if it's not done for him, if it's not done with the intention for him, because you didn't do it, because you believe in Him, and you believe in the day that you will meet him when he called he then for habitat, those actions will be rendered worthless habitat mean they will not be accepted. And they will be given zero way to multi Emma, a very, very important thing to think about, extremely important. The first one told you the first part of the sutra, do not be indifferent. Do not be indifferent. Make sure that you care for these things, it's important that you care. If you are not listening and you can't hear then you're gonna get in trouble. The second
part, now you care I carry on, make sure you know who you're caring for, make sure you understand why you're doing it, or else it will be rendered. There's a couple of things here that could potentially ruin everything.
If caring is one step, knowing why you're doing it is another I'll give you those who get involved and working for the sake of Allah doing hire. If they are not people who continuously and constantly revise their intentions of why they're doing things, they can get lost quite quickly, they can get sucked up into the politics of it all. They can get distracted by by trying to achieve short term goals or distracted by issues of power or issues of self. Anything that's self serving, you can lose you can lose your compass very quickly. And then you've been working for 10 years and you look back because I haven't been doing this selflessly. I have been doing this for the sake of Allah for a
long time now. There's been other intentions, there's been other things that I was gaining this whole time. And then you've ruined Philando Serena,
those who will be the biggest losers on your milk piano, they've worked so hard for nothing for nothing. You get nothing bubbles, your deeds or bubbles. He put them in the museum they don't even sit there floating. Why? Because
without it can lead you in a cafe, Ruby, tilapia, him when he thought he those who disbelieved in his, in his in his science, Miss believing they were meet him, their actions were worthless, and then they were given no weight to Yes.
To hear that the same copper we talked about, most likely, most likely, but here comfort will be at your beam is a bit more defined. So those who didn't necessarily believe in the signs of Allah subhanho wa taala. But what theologically or practically, men will call for any command. No, and not just not just two meanings of the word go for is also too tight. For a practical perspective. There is scope for that is a measure of theology where I do not believe and there is scope for which is the evidence of your actions. But this is what it seems for you this is what seems you've been doing your actions say that you're more confident you are Muslim based on what you're doing. And that is a
judgment that only Allah subhanaw taala makes. Again, we don't make any of these judgments. We don't make any we don't say I'm muslim, I'm not going to your country, not Muslim, he's Muslim. We don't know any of that. Allah subhanaw taala, yomo Gama will will assign the statuses, okay, he is Muslim, and he is COVID. And he is much but he does that not us. For us. We just we just fear being these things. We just make sure that we're not that we're making we make sure that we're not falling into this loophole that we're not the people who who fell into that crack between the between the big ideas, and we did everything. We're not indifferent anymore and we're working but we forgot to make
it for him. We forgot to make sure that our intentions were for him that was based on believing in Him and knowing that we're going to meet him because once you take those two things out then have you talked to Mr. Liu.
Yanni we pray to Isha. Do you know do you have information right now? That tells you that that was accepted? The diamond
was accepted. You don't know Moonkin has it I know you've may come to milkymap for hypo that this is what Allah subhanaw taala salami Allah subhanaw taala accept all our deeds, we may come to Milan and find this is not an accepted deed. This deed was not accepted. What are you going to do? How are you going to argue that
what are you going to do about that? That is like a dead end you will pay homage it's very frustrating, but I did it. I know but it wasn't accepted but but I did it I know you did it this is what I'm studying I'm at are these are the ones with the biggest biggest loss your milk Emma knows we're in from a from their actions perspective is the biggest losers why? Because they have nothing to show they did it it's right there but it's has no weight you put in into the music when you put it into the into the scale it's not doing anything. And it's frustrating for you look here's my prayer like it's why is it why is it doing it? Five minutes I'm just not wasn't accepted for Daniel
Pinewood at home we don't assign for them for these actions and you wait, they're weightless.
Meaning they're say they're working towards a goal. But the way they work to it was was gonna mean it was not it was not righteous. There was an aspect of going astray. There was an aspect of loss and Desai, they thought they were doing it right. They thought that when we asked a boon, they think they're doing it right. Why? Because they stopped thinking about it. Because they stopped thinking about it, they stopped going back to make sure we were doing it for the sake of Allah because their intention is because of sincerity. Because the goal the motivation behind it was not continuously being reminded a revised is a you asked me a question at the beginning. How do we make sure we don't
become like that? That's how you make sure you always ask yourself before you do something, it does this Please Allah, Am I doing it for Allah, it's very hard to make a mistake. When you do that before you commit before you perform any action. It's very hard. It's impossible. Because when you're standing there with a knife, ready to cut some guy's head off. And you think, does this Please Allah, saying yes means you're a sociopath. It's impossible. But you couldn't say anything? And no, this doesn't please Allah doesn't know what he's doesn't know what He taught. There's no what the Quran is talking about, obviously, do you even as a person, this is not the right course of
action. I'm not doing this for the sake of Allah. I'm doing this for a different point here. There's a difference. Someone else is benefiting from this. Maybe it's me. Maybe it's me personally, maybe it's my group. Maybe it's my party. Maybe it's my sect, maybe I don't know what it is. Someone's benefiting. But I'm pretty sure it's not for the sake of Allah.
And those are studying. That's very, very interesting. Why? Because the Sunnah talks about so much, so much. Amen. To the gaff talks about building bricks about coming together and working, there will be a lot of work. But look, this site could eat can easily go astray. If you don't continuously observe why you're doing it, you're doing it because you believe in His signs. And because you're not gonna stand in front of him and meet him and speak to him. You have to be able to tell him I did this for you.
I did this according to your plan. Okay, well show me. Let's see, let's see if it was according to my plan. Let's see, maybe it doesn't seem like it's my plan. It seems like what's your plan? They don't seem to be the same. They don't seem to be the same plan. The goals aren't the same.
The principles aren't the same. I don't understand how, how are you saying that you did this for me? No, you didn't do this for me. You know, but my whole life was invested in this. Yeah.
And just studying the work that the one the biggest losers, the there's a lot of people that lose, this is by far the worst. spent your whole life thinking you're doing it right. And then yomo gamma, you're, it's brought to your attention that you didn't do it for the right reason this whole time. You were like, ah, that's true. Deep inside, I knew but I just didn't think about it. Yes, just intention here or it's more intentional, and also doing it the right way. Because those are example for that cutting. Yeah. He's got the intention. In his sense, he thinks he's intending.
He thinks he's doing it right.
They think they're doing it right. The thing is, that they didn't take the time needed to revise why they were doing what they were doing, meaning before they made the decision. Because of course, when you do anything, you think you're doing the right thing. But when you do before you do it, are you taking the time to make sure that you're doing it for the right reason? A father will, you know, slap his son over the head with the intention that I'm raising my son, right? That how do you maybe stop for a moment of thought about it? You'll say, You know what, that's not the right way to do it. This is not the right way to do it. There's a better way of doing this, but he didn't stop. Right.
But if we ask them, Why do you do that? He'll defend it. No, I was raising my son. I was raising my son.
If he's like you're doing the right thing here. But he didn't stop before to make sure that he was making the right choice to begin with senators. No one is blank. someone refuses to see or hear this. You want to say something? This is particularly related with the one who don't believe in God. You know, they have judgment. So how can you relate with the pain need to say that No, I said, No, I didn't say that is related to those who
don't believe in, in the Day of Judgment, raise, definitely believing. If you go back to what the word capital means in the, in the beginning was indifference, meaning the focus of capital in this in these mechanics was indifference. So they were indifferent in the signs of Allah, they were indifferent towards meeting him.
There's different levels of indifference. Sometimes you're indifferent to the big picture that's right in front of you. Your society needs help, and you don't care. Islam is there, you don't want to practice it. And then there's another level of different indifference where you're doing all of that, but you're indifferent to your own intention, you're indifferent to whom you're doing it for the word capital will define for us right at the beginning of 2018. A cover will be it will be Monday, those are the ones who covered will be it will have been the signs of their Lord and, and meeting their Lord use the same word capital. But he was talking about the same context, still, same
context, nothing has changed yet. We haven't left that hole in the left yet.
Of course, I'm not saying that those who don't believe we're gonna go, No, I'm talking about what the suit, this is what this is just saying, whether we like it or not, that's what the head is saying.
It's a big problem. When you're doing it, maybe you're doing something you're putting in the effort, you're walking down the road, however, your intention was never observed properly to begin with. And now you're not going to get paid for it. And you're not going to get anything back.
Now you can get this,
if you take it back to the beginning of the sutra, right? When you go back to carve, what did they do that no one else did?
They stopped before they were living life. And they said, no, no. So hold on for a second. Because it didn't seem right. This seems to be something wrong here a very big mistake, the way that we're living that we were thinking we were behaving, to stop, so they stopped and they changed. And then they were told you're gonna get killed. So they stopped again. You see it, you see that? Every time something a reality changes, they stop, and they revise their plan, why to make sure we're doing it the right way. And that shows maturity that shows understanding, and that it shows that you're not indifferent, that you're actually very cautious. You're very, very conscious, you're very aware of
what's going on. And you're asking yourself every time am I doing it for the right reason, this is the most difficult thing you will do as a human being and your life will not be one of the hardest things you'll ever do is to be able to hold yourself accountable as you walk down the road. Because every once in a while you'll make a step and then you'll you'll look back and say, well, in the last, no, I've I've changed, a lot of a lot has changed since then. I'm not thinking that you have to have to you have to make a decision to go back again, to turn to turn it back to the right and they'll hurt it will sting. Sometimes someone else will tell you to do it. Sometimes you won't pay
attention to someone else will remind you of it. And we're going to I'm doing it the right way than you think. No, I'm not. Actually I'm not. I've been I've been walking the street for quite some time. And most of us are in like cruise control, right? Yeah. I've only seen people question their actions, like, those people are certain personality types where they don't think they're good enough.
Sure, sure. They question their actions all the time. Yeah. But I think but I think that's more of a 90. That's a pathological reason for doing it. If you're questioning yourself, just because you have no confidence. That's a different problem. And that becomes continuous learners. Exactly. Yeah. So sometimes, what you think is a curse about your personality ends up actually benefiting you? Right? So we all learn from from people who do that. But that doesn't mean you can't do it. You have to do it. And why don't you try and you'll see it's a big blessing. It's hard, but to be blessing when to do it. Because you'll find yourself to be to have this ability to always tweak your the way you're
walking. Why should you do it? Because you just read this? Because you just heard him say, how would I tell you about the biggest losers when it comes to their deeds on your milk gamma, those who are going to be feeling those who will feel the loss like no one else, everyone who's not going to join us feel that they lost, but these guys are gonna feel lost, like no, it's like your you played for 90 minutes, you were winning the whole time and you're gonna get the World Cup and then the last to last 30 seconds, you get two goals, and you lose this because you pull your hair out of your head because I just I all it took. It's a really bad feeling. If you feel lost, like no one else. womb,
the people who, who had goals in their life who were driven thought they were doing the right thing, but they were going astray. Because because they weren't doing it because they believed in the science of Allah and they were hoping to meet him. And then everything they did was rendered worthless and it was given no wheat. Then I'm gonna stand there saying, what did we do? What did we do? How did I miss this? It's important at the end of sort of recap that we're reminded of that. Because if you walk away from South Africa with the right mentality, then you're walking away with a lot of information, a lot of motivation to work, you're inspired to take any steps towards true
change in your society. Remind yourself of these two things. Do not be indifference. Do not indifferent. Do not surround yourself by indifference people and make sure that you're always reminding yourself of your intentions. You see, understand that your idea is very, very, very valid.
It will be his piece of advice given to us at the end of sorts of guff. So pile I think we ran out of time, what time was it?
Okay, let's just read one area and then we'll continue in our next segment. We'll finish it up next segment shallow. In Oh, sorry, actually, we didn't talk about number ones. The final the final part of the night, Daddy could just womb Jahannam be maca for all indeed for that they will be rewarded their reward or their consequence of what they're going to get. Johanna Bhima Cafaro going back to the same word, you see this couch, how many times we would call for came from from either number 100. So caffeine isn't what is number 100 It is defined in the IRA after that Lavina Canada you know, and then I n number 102 alladhina Cafaro. And then at the end of what O'Toole caffeine, and
then and I am number 105, who they can let in a cover will be
here. And then we might cover a number 106 See how term terminology works in the Quran. Sometimes it won't be defined, it'll be left to you to understand it. And sometimes you'll take a turn to define it and then you'll walk out this aparthotel will continue explaining so that you understand that term within the explanation and to begin with, because that is an aspect of go for an asset of cover is indifference when the reasons of golfer is indifference. Now he wants to focus on that part for you. Because indifference is the incurable disease and this will make a difference whether you take this seriously. The sooner you understand it, you learn it seriously, you have to change because of
it. If you're not indifferent, if you're someone who is conscious, someone who was aware, but indifference will take you the other way that he could just get along Jahannam those who did that those who walked the wrong guy walked took a pathway in life never revising themselves thought they were doing the right thing, but they were doing it for the wrong reason. Just boom Jahannam their reward is going to be Johanna B maca follow because of their indifference because of what they did, because of the kupuna that they that they practiced with. It was really who they were. And they took upon themselves they took and they treated My signs and My prophets with mockery and ridicule. And
they said, Well, no, that changes thing because ridicule is making ridicule is not necessarily making fun of someone ridiculous, just taking it lightly. That's a form of mockery, a form of mockery is when you just don't take it seriously. When I tell you Karla Rasulullah this fall Allah Qaeda. And a good example of the word out here being the most half like I remember I told you, that 99% of the time means signs of Allah subhanaw taala certain examples it means the verses I think here is the verses because between ayat of the Quran in the words of Allah and the Rasul of Allah, the province of Allah, you get the whole picture of what deen is, and they took it with with a grain
of salt. They did it lightly. They hear the Quran. Yeah, it's all good. It's good stuff.
No problem. Not too not too serious about it. I tell you, Serena, Amanda, you're gonna lose everything. Yeah. Okay. And then you continue to what you do. And you don't revise, you keep on doing things. That's a form of mockery, you may not be standing up and may not may not may or may not be stand up comedy or making fun of the dean. But it is still a form of ridicule. When you're told this is very serious, and you take it way less serious, you're much laid back towards these issues than you should be. And they don't carry the weight that they're supposed to carry for you. When you're listening to them. It was truly who it was all kinds of, yeah, whatever. Whatever. My
interest is more important. My agenda, my self self self serving, taking care of me making sure I get what I want, making sure I get where I want to be way more important. How could you take How could that be more important than serving Allah subhanaw taala himself? How could How could that even work? How could it work? It doesn't. And that's why you're milking the people are at the biggest behind at the pinnacle of loss. They feel lost like no one else because they made that because they made that choice. I will stop and shallow Yanni. With that we will continue to Onyx I'm small, I thought I would have more time to finish this thorough look, and we will conclude the shows
with look, I've definitely been in that data next next time. So why are you hunting Shinola? You know, I still feel go to Google some of them hammered you know what it's like Ah man, he's not gonna love him.
