barik ala Nabina or have you been on Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi hmm no bad insha Allah to Allah you continue from where we left off last week and the Tafseer of Surah Al Hadid.
So to Hadid is by far the most interesting sewers in the Quran,
as it teaches us how to balance
materialism and spirituality as to necessary essential components of human life and not just human life, but also of the Islamic methodology of living. Allah subhanaw taala did not command us or ask us to live a life where we were in disconnection with their own spirits, nor did he ask us Subhana wa Tada to live a life where we neglected the power of wealth, and the practicality of status.
And building a civilization what that can do for people in Oregon to improper or proper organization. And it's really,
when you see Muslims that are imbalanced in this approach that you see flaws appear, is when Muslims don't know how to balance this appropriately, in some form or manner that they end up being
not only imbalanced in their in their lives, but also in balancing the way they understand Islam and the way they preach it to others. And then you end up actually sending a message of Islam being something different than it actually is. It's probably one of the worst things you can do.
That's why I think it is important within this cluster at the end of this cluster from off to Hadid. By the end of it all these options and all of these different choices that we're making through these tools from above going down. They're going to go to Hadid where it's not really a choice. It's they're not opposites, they actually are required to exist simultaneously,
in harmony within within your mind and your hearts and with the way that you actually behave. And human beings have always struggled with this, by the way, it's always a bit of a struggle to figure out how our focus how pragmatic do I need to be how spiritual should I be? It's always in this balance has always been a struggle. And that's why the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. It was such a and his existence, his life, his life story was such an earth breaking movement, you can at least talk to some brought this very, very unique way of going by life, you as someone out of your salatu salam was extremely practical, very pragmatic, in the same way. I know your salatu salam was a
prophet. And he received why revelation and he's and he was the closest human being to ever live to Allah subhanho wa Taala within his heart and in his daily rituals and routines.
And that's why when they look at him, it is thought to essentially Orientalist who tried to put them in boxes, it's always easier to judge somewhere to deal with someone, if you can put them in a box, if you can figure out like describe them in a way and just say this is that this is what this person is. And that way, you don't have to actually listen to what they have to say, you don't have to critically think or critically weigh out their opinions or their thought process, you can just put them in a category put on is this or for that is that and they follow this type of it's their left or their right or their you know, up or down or conservative or liberal or whatever you want to it's
easier just to box them. And when they came to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam always hard to categorize them, put them in a box difficult, because we because he was very, he was so balanced as a figure out of your slot to us. I mean, so you just you couldn't do it. Every time he tried to put him in a box he just an aspect of his story. A very clear or strong aspect of his story just didn't fit the box. So they had to try again. Not only did the orientalist tried to do this, but also, but also the people lived at his time during his time out of your solitude who didn't believe in him. He didn't know what to call them. What do we call him?
But we're not we're not gonna say he's a newbie. So here's what we're gonna say that we're gonna say. So he went in really does, you know, the story of Switzerland. And he spent some time thinking but got all Candela for poutine. Okay, for $5 per dollar to my Navara to Ibiza to Dubai, I was talking about, he's walking around thinking that what do I what do I help? How do I categorize him? I call him a question. Do I call him a showerhead? Do I call him a second? Do I get what I call him? And they couldn't figure it out? And everybody would say something. And then people who knew him it aside, there's anybody that says, No, he's not a bullet. You never said portrait in his life. Not a
story straight on again. He never He never he's never used any form of sorcery is ever. He's not a magician. He doesn't even talk to me that he doesn't ever say anything. That's done understood. He couldn't figure it out. He's not mad. Some Allah Holly's who said it wasn't mentioned, which is what they call them as well in the Quran. They came up with all these different things. They couldn't categorize him. Why? Because he was such a balanced human being in every way, was so balanced and that's really what we're supposed to learn from him. It has a lot to do. Last week we stopped
at a number. I think it was 16 or 1717 and
I shared with you that I my opinion, of course my humble and simple opinion I am not in any formal matter
authorized to give this opinion
it's more of just something that I'm
participating in. Scholars have always looked at the Quran, they tried to talk about what is the most impactful AI? What is the most scary AI, what is the most hopeful AI, what is the most they would do with these type of things just and it was more of their reflection, their personal reflections on the verses of the Quran, and everyone would give one that's different than the other. And then you've heard probably a lot of these different verses in their influence. And in my opinion, a number 17 is probably the most hopeful and the Quran
because after Allah subhanaw taala told us give us a snapshot of your mo pa, which is what we talked about last time. It was a powerful group of verses where Allah subhanaw taala is showing us the manifestation of your spirituality and dunya on the Day of Judgment, how it comes to materialistic on the day of judgment, and the judgment and light that you carry right now in your heart, if you're carrying it will actually be physical light that you find on the Day of Judgment, they'll sit off the lifestyle that you're living right now. And the mistakes and the ups and the downs and the failures and the successes will actually be manifesting themselves physically on the set off you'll
millenium, the barrier between you and between Allah subhanaw taala that is not that is spiritual and dunya will be a physical wall on the Day of Judgment, everything on your milkier that was spiritual, that has a physical form will come into physical form. We know that because the Prophet alayhi salatu salam talks about the quality of our deen Liwa on your multi Yama, every trader on the agenda comes with a banner is an act of treason. That's a psychological lesson. It's not a materialistic thing, but you will come you'll milk Yama with with a banner and every sin will come in a physical form, following the person around on the Day of Judgment, those whom Allah subhanaw
taala does not grant the blessing of Citral May Allah Allah grant us that blessing See, I mean, most important things is that ALLAH SubhanA continues to grant a sitter and in this dunya and an alcohol, but some people won't get that your milk Deanna. So there are sins will turn into physical form. And as they walk these sins, follow them in the running away, because you don't want people to see the sin that is following them. But they can't get away from their sins because they're with them. to milk them a lot of the spiritual world will be manifesting itself physically. And that's what those verses were about. For them when you're 18. They couldn't, there was a barrier between them and me,
they were saying we weren't ready. And they can't see the lights, they have no light. You want you want to use the light of the believers. And they said no, you're not gonna use their lights, as their lights, they worked hard for that light, move forward with your light, you guys stay back, want to go back to dunya and get your light. You get your light from dunya. That's what they were told. Honestly, that piece of the idea. They don't, they don't convert me sooner or easily that that piece of the verse could have been removed and the verse was still mean the same thing. But it's there for a reason. You were told go back to dunya. That's how you're gonna find your light.
It's like it's a reminder for those who are still in dunya. This is where you find your light to get your light. You're welcome you go on you're not you know in pitch dark, not blind, but can go Yokoyama and you have liked and you can move forward. They can't go back to dunya. When they were told this, they can't do it there. That's it. That's it. We're told you'll get Algeria we can go back go back to your dunya felt me sooner and search and find your light. They can't do that alone even though you know whom we sued in the hubbub and then they ended up with a wall between them and the believers on their side it was torment and on the other side was the mercy and compassion of
Allah subhanaw taala they call upon the believers were we not with you I'm not gonna happen to believers will answer your call but then they point out a number of
fundamental problems well, I can I can pretend to come full circle with a robust Doom got a debit to Overwatch, Kamala money you had a Amarula over Camilla Hill Haru. You deceived yourselves you distracted yourselves.
waited on something to happen that didn't didn't didn't take initiative or your own your own destiny. Unfortunately, you were filled with doubt. And you live based on that doubt. And you were eluded by your wishful thinking until you died. You allow chayton to give you illusions and delusions that were not true. We talked about them last time in some degree of detail you can go back to last time, especially if you weren't around to hear kind of the breakdown of them. And they were told at that point that you're going to the Hellfire with a doula and then Allah subhanaw taala delivers a number 16 which is an idea that Sahaba it caused us to have a lot of distress. Because
the I in the way that it's be that it's phrased linguistically is basically a form of chastising someone. Lm yet needed. Latina has the time not come. There's a little bit of blame happening. Allah subhanaw taala is speaking to the believers. What's wrong with you? As the time not come? What are we waiting for? When are you going to finally find her shoe on your hearts? When Are you finally going to find presence and closeness and realism in your heart?
towards Allah so his real connection with Allah subhanaw taala when you hear his name being when you're being reminded of his name when you're listening to his words, or are you waiting to become like the people of the book before you
badali himolla do focus at polu boom, the people in the book before you they, they they neglected this for so long. So much time went by and that our hearts hardened and they stopped understanding a word that they stopped understanding their books they didn't they didn't understand it. And then they were cathedral minimum first of all, and then they went too far away. They got lost completely die after just the hopeful verse. Yeah, Allah mu. And Allah how you heal our bah bah demoed Yeah, no, no, this well, we know that I mean, it's not like a new piece of information. I
know we're in the verses up till now. Like if you go to the quote, if you go through the verses of the Quran, you always find places in the Quran where Allah Subhan talks a lot about creation like he talks about the skies and the the clouds and the rain and and the green that comes from the earth and the whole a lot but up till now this has not been talked about it will be in a moment. We'll read them actually today, but up till now nothing has been mentioned that up till now it's just it's just concepts are being explained. And then just almost out of nowhere it seems like if you're looking at it that this is yeah, let me know that Allah grants dead Earth life grants Earth that has
life after it dies by demoting after there's nothing after everything is dead on it.
And if you go to the desert, you'll know what I mean. You go to a desert the earth is dead there's nothing there. And then it rains and within minutes and minutes green comes out of the earth within minutes. Allah you'll be standing there you'll see green come from the earth as you stand there's not like normal parts of the world because because deserts are so water deprived. When you offer it water it will grow something almost instantaneously. Almost as you stand there as it rains you will see green come from the Earth is a very amazing phenomenon to witness. That's why he's saying that here's the point it because he's because this is a simile.
Is it the should be or is the Ottawa River Allah says I'd say no.
That I grant Earth life after it dies.
And just like I can grant Earth life after it dies, I can grant hearts life after they die as well. Just like your the earth dies, and it will be granted life when your heart dies. When your custard Kulu Bukom and there's no horseshoe left in it, and you feel like there's no hope and you will never ever feel God and you'll never ever feel that presence or feel connected or enjoy your prayer. Enjoy your Quran when you feel like there's no hope and you're just not cut for that. Know that Allah subhanaw taala. Just like in grants Earth life after it dies, you can grant your heart the same. That's why the continuation of the verse is called the yen like formula. Indeed we have detailed or
explained for you the signs that I let them talk a loon if you will take time and reflect upon them. Just reflect a little bit we have made it very clear for you that there is never a good reason for you to lose hope and Allah subhanaw taala has mercy upon you and compassion, there is never a good reason for you to stop believing that Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant you is the farmer and clarity and the ability to be righteous and to walk this straight path. There's never a reason to do that. This is a pawns Joker like or this is an Ace Ace of Spades.
This is his This is his This is the strongest card he got is when he carries and if he loses there's nothing left. You'll use this on you. So you'll see that there's no hope look at you how many times how many times have you listened to the same thing being said how many stories have you listened to how many chances have you been granted? How many mistakes have you made? How many repentance and then go back how many times there is no you're just not You're not good enough. You can't do this is impossible. And somehow somewhere deep down inside your consciousness you believe it and then he can leave you let you go I'll just leave you alone after that. It's autopilot from there. You will your
plane is heading right to the mountains and it doesn't have to spend any more time with you you will crash on your own because now he's was able to go somewhere deep into your coding and just make you believe that you're not going to be able to do this this is beyond you. They can leave you
Allah subhanaw taala says the opposite and I learn more and Allah you know this know this but I know that I do know this era Yes, but the yen Allah, Allah think, take what I'm trying to tell you.
I can grant it live just just show something
Mufasa Kulu boom embody the Lika Bahia Cal hija Rottie Oh, Usha Dukkha so you go back to a verse that is similar to this with the Bukhara when he talks about but he is silent in their hearts hardened and they were like rock or even harder than rock when I mean Elijah ality lemma yet fed gentlemen hula and how we're in them in her lemma. Yes Shaco for your whole domain
Wilma in nemenhah Lemme Yeah, beautiful man hacia, Tinder and rocks, some rocks will will explode with water gushing out of them. And some of them will split after a long time and water will come through them and some of them will fall and the humility and humbleness out of the reverence of Allah subhanho wa Taala even rocks will be able to do that. Yes, maybe your heart has become hardened like a rock, but even rocks can do something.
And that's to be and I'll tell you a story actually just for the the benefit of you kind of maybe remembering this verse through one is that there's a tabby by the name of
Matt Malik Gibbon dinar and in some narrations he's called I'm already been Dino.
And we don't know for sure. But he was a known scholar of velcon. Hadith one of the tie between and and he tells us a story. And the story exists in the you find it in Hellyer to Leah and you'll find it in in a few other collections like this. So no one will Hugill, you'll find a few collections I talked tell this story. These types of stories don't have chains of narrations because they're not prophetic narrations. So I, we don't use these verify the authenticity or the chains of these stories, because Because basically, there's no reason to do that. When you're talking about history. You don't go and verify a chain of narration, you verify chains of narrations, when the Prophet
alayhi salatu, Salam 's actions, wordings, behaviors were involved, because we need to know because that's Shabbat. But outside of that stories of people, we don't necessarily verify the chains of narration. So I don't know. And I could, I didn't look into this. And none of the people who told me this story did either. So I don't know for sure. But it's a story that I think has some benefit and understanding the concepts of it. Whether it happened exactly the way I tell you or not, is a whole different thing.
This gentleman tells his story. And he of course, he's telling this story after he is now a renowned world renowned scholar of Islam. And it's been like that for 30 or 40 years or more. And he was telling his story that I wasn't always like this. And one of my teachers was like that. One of my teachers in domestic didn't die too long ago actually became very famous. Very,
very, it was very weird. I remember, I remember seeing him on on a YouTube or a Facebook or something real like is that so I called my friend his last years, but he is he Yeah, what is he doing on Facebook, who's who's, who's putting this guy up on on Vimeo. And basically, a couple of his later students decided that they made reels of him and he became he became very famous suddenly, and people start to know Him. This gentleman is a very, it was a very hardworking, one of the most sincere people I've met he, he didn't, he didn't, he didn't work in Damascus. He stayed always in the suburbs of places, places that no one went and put us where no one cared. And we place it places
where there was one masjid or an old masjid and no one even prayed for, and he would go there, he would stay there for a couple of months. And he would revive things. And he would teach people how to bring an Imam and he would leave and then move on to another place. And this way, he was 40 Hanafi. And we learned from a little bit of the Hanafi field. He was a very funny gentleman, he always had a good, a good joke. He's good at kind of making, it took him forever to tell a story because he was always going on tangents. But he had a similar story like he will tell us the story of how he how he repented because he didn't start his his his life out like that. He started his
life out. He was a he, he was pretty, he had a rough upbringing. And he was someone that people feared and he was someone who was quite harmful and took them a long time and said in Hindi, one of the one of the scholars of Damascus were able to kind of bring him in. And he, of course, has changed his life. So this is not something uncommon. When you talk about stories of scholars, scholars will have upbringings and then they'll move around and some of them are born into families of scholarship. So there's both exist. So this gentleman wasn't like that he didn't come from a family of scholars, he came from a rough background, and he grew up very rough. He would say there
was no sin, that you can imagine that I did not commit all the sins that you can think of I did them all, and I did them many times and I became known for them. And I was so known for my sins that people would avoid me, like people did not want to be involved with me, I I couldn't when I got a bit older, I couldn't get a job. I couldn't do anything because people just did not want to be involved with me at all. And he was telling he tells a story that one day he was so drunk, that he was he was passed out or he was lying down on the on the ground somewhere. And in the stupor of his of his
of his drunkenness he sees he sees a man walking and with his with him is his young daughter, his three year old daughter. So he said in my heart, I felt that I would like to photocopy hug Woodward. And I just felt like I would love to have a daughter of my own or a son, someone, someone from me, personally, especially people who feel lonely definitely feel that strongly, strongly in their lives, those who don't have a lot of social strong social networks. Because a child is the most intimate relationship you'll ever have. You know what more intimate, or there's no more potential for an intimate relationship than having a child. So he in his mind, like I would like to have a
child. So he goes in and tries to get married and no one offers him any any form of No, there's nothing nobody will know Him. You will know him. No, you're not getting married. So he
sobered up for a month or two. Like he got rid of all his bad habits he started to look to go to small job tried to, you know, fix things up still no one would offer him married like No, no, we know you're not you're not you're not you're not you're not marriage quality. So he finally he went, he looked for a bride for outside of his of his area like he, you go out to you look maybe farther away, it's easier you look from over our lady who came from a very simple background or background that was just as rough as his, he was able to get married anybody's way back and he's living in the same place, he goes back to his bad habits. Allah subhanaw taala grants him the blessing of adultery
names are Fatima
when he says that nothing to me, is more beloved than this daughter. I love her loved her more than anything in the world. And I used to always feel so embarrassed when I would come home in a bad condition after a night of you know, bad behaviors or something. And she would see me and she would come to play with me and I smelled and I had, like, I always felt embarrassed. And I keep on telling myself, I have to stop doing this, I'm gonna go to if I'm going to be a good role model for this young girl, if I'm going to be a proper Father, if he's going to have any hope and a life where she has some dignity. And she had some some good reputation. I have to I have to turn this around. He
kept on I kept on saying that to myself. But I never really did it. I just, I just feel embarrassed and a bit ashamed and guilty about it. And then one day my wife forgot the door open. Or I forgot the door open. And my three year old walked out of the house and she was trampled by a couple of horses and she died.
And he lost his daughter. And he lost with his daughter, his mind. And he would go and he would say to himself tonight I'm going to get I'm going to break the record of being drunk. I'm going to drink a barrel of wine, no one's going to be ever going to tell my story. And he's doing this in retaliation. For people who don't have strong faith. They don't know how to deal with Messiah, they don't know how to deal with with this. There's a lot of to learn from this story. By the way, I'm not going to go through all of it because I want to go through the deceit but I just like the because at the end of it, there's something
that's that's related to this verse.
People who don't know Allah subhana wa teilen don't understand this world will commonly not know how to deal with them will see but when it comes to them, instead of saying hamdulillah and showing software and knowing that Allah Spano will make it up for them and will reward them for that he decided to object and to go to the opposite direction. So he goes and he and he drinks himself into a state of comatose where he where he where he, he's a dream. Within this dream, he feels himself he sees himself on the Day of Judgment, standing alone. He knows, as you when you have dreams, you know what you don't need people to tell you, you just kind of know what's happening. It's just how dreams
work. So he knew this was your milk IAM, it was an empty line open in every direction, a little bit of mist, and he stood there and he was alone, but no one was there. If you'd look behind him, he would see a large snake of some sort some creature that comes out of your nightmares. And it's headed right to him. He begins to run in complete fear, obviously, as many people do in their juicers just to run in fearing this, this creature behind him that is going to destroy him or eat him. And he sees a a person in the horizon. So he runs towards the person, the closer it comes to the person the closer the more he sees. It's an elderly gentleman that is very weak and fragile.
He's standing there. So he comes right up to him. He asks him for help, please help me who doesn't I can't help you. I'm too weak. But if you go in that direction, there's a hill, you may find someone up there that can help you. So he starts to run in that direction and be eyes, he looks behind him, it's still following him. It goes up the hill, at the top of the hill, you can see children playing,
who's running towards the hill running towards the Lincoln steel children. And the closer he comes to these children, he starts to make out some of them. And he could swear that he can see his daughter. And the closer he gets to them he can see he sees and it is his daughter, and for a moment that he forgets what's going on. And obviously in a moment of, of agony of sorrow and love, ie to embrace his his daughter, and he's hugging her and his that he remembers that there's something that's following him to looks back and he sees this this creature and he doesn't know what to do. And his daughter says, Don't worry.
Calm down. So he does. And then his daughter puts her hand up
and it goes back.
And he's done. He's standing there shaking. This is his dream. This is he's telling us his dream.
And he's standing there and he's cheek he's shaking, and he asks her what what what is this? She tells him
as for the snake, those are your bad deeds.
As for the old gentleman, those were good deeds
too weak to help you. Your bad deeds are so strong, they almost kill you, killed you. And if it wasn't for me, they would have
and Allah took me from you. To give you this last chance.
When he wakes up,
he wakes up
he tells him
You see I was going to you because you had you had strengthen your badness to the point where it's going to destroy you. But then Allah took me from you
and He gave you one more chance. So wakes up.
From this he goes and he makes awesome and he goes to the Mr. He goes Mexico doing it goes to the masjid is an imbecile in Iraq. That goes to the masjid. He happens to go to the masjid of an imam. It has ended basally Allah one, a great Imam of Islam. And he stands behind him. It's a little fragile.
And he's praying he doesn't know what to pray because he never learned properly. And now I'm gonna ask him basally is bleeding federal, and he recites in selected visual ILM yet Nene Latina, Manu, and SHA boo boo whom the decree human as elemental help as the time not come for the believers for their hearts, to find presence and closeness and connection to the remembrance of their Lord, and the words of His revelation that is being recited upon them. So we started to yell out loud and slotted for you to Bella Naoto. Yes, the time has come yellow, Bella, and as the time has come here, and of course, He's disrupting everyone's prayer, because he has no idea what he's doing. So they
finished their Salani and it hasn't the boss, he calls him, what are you doing, screaming in the middle of Salah. So he tells them a story of the house and the boss tells him, and this is your last chance. If this has happened to you, as you're telling me and this is your last, you will not be granted another one.
And from that moment forward, he
he made it a detour.
He got his act together, he pulled back figured things out and redirected and walk down the path again. This is what this is, is in many senses. In many ways. This idea is just saying has the time not come, you know, When? When? If not now, then tell me what, please, playing to me a better time than now. Give me your rationale of why another time is better than the one that you have right now. Please go ahead, I dare you, you will fail, you will fail on every level in every forum. If you try to explain to me why later is better for this than now you will fail. But we do that all the time. We do that all the time. We postpone this issue. We have a pretty bad relationship with God. It's
not good. It's not where it needs to be not even close. We're not even on a path that's going to take us to a place where we can be happy with our relationship with God. But we're not investing it now. Why? We don't even ask you don't ask that question, because we don't want to answer it because we don't have an answer for it. So we just keep on postponing we just procrastinate. Just put it aside. Just keep on putting it aside. Put it aside later later in our minds once they graduate. Maybe once they get married once make it once they once you want. All that's waiting for you Habibi is death. All that's waiting for us is just we're going to die very soon, very soon. What's the 100
years is nothing. It's nothing. If I asked you when one of the scholars of Islam lived, and you got that you gave me a date, and it was within 100 year range, you would feel very proud of yourself. Because 100 years does nothing to you even. It means nothing to me, if I get something within 100 years, like I'm close enough, I'm close enough. I'm not 1000 years old. 100 years is no problem. I don't know, maybe 780 800 Hijiri, something like that. I say that all the time. Imam Fulani looked between I thought 300 400 I just jumped 200 years, I just killed a full generation of people with my words, I just completely killed them all and didn't care. Because our lives are so short. They're
very, very short. There's nothing there. The only time IS LM yet earn the word yet. And he comes from the root in Arabic, Alana earn his time and earn is now Yeah, and he has the time not come. The only time is now there. That's the only time not even after Salatin Alicia. Now even before I finished my dose, now I as I speak to you now is the time for you to start sorting this all out. And figuring out what you're going to do. And becoming serious about something that's going to have a huge impact on the way your life continues, and how it ends in what you're going to find for yourself waiting on the day of judgment.
And there's nothing that's the end of it. And honestly, everything else we talked about in this message or any other message in any other person that I've talked about, doesn't really go beyond the words I just shared with you. As simple as that. If you just understand what I explained, and you make a conscious decision, and you just see it through, you see it through you, you make you make all the adjustments necessary to make sure that this decision will actually be successful, you're fine. There's a bunch of decisions that need to make.
Oh, you're gonna have to change a lot of your lifestyles, issues or your lifestyle had to change your friends have to change your environment has to change. Your routine has to change your time investment, a bunch of stuff have to change if this decision if you make if you're truthful about Yes, now is the time then a couple of decisions have to be made and you make the decision you stick to them and then you'll see the difference. Or else we just wait
To eat Not everyone is as lucky as an email Malika Medina or I'm gonna be everybody that everyone gets the final message in their dream not everyone does. Most people don't just to be most people, the vast majority, the whopping majority of people don't. He had a very specific upbringing specific story that Allah subhanaw taala granted him this,
this this lifeline, not everyone gets that some of us will be
are given our last chance, and we lose our last chance and we don't even know about it.
And we're living in a post last chance era of our lives and we don't even feel it. And Allah subhanaw taala is pulling out all of that wish he invested in us all of the beauty that's inside of us slowly and we don't even feel it. They don't even know once you have no sensitivity, we don't care and we it's normal for us.
There's no story where a
story that's told by scholars. Again, these stories are more I think for the hippo than they are for the authenticity of them.
Where someone would say Robby SICA mu herba Aina
whatever the hell him need to abduct me Oh my Lord, I've been I had been thinning for so long for years and 40 years and nothing you haven't punished me you haven't let me down ever taken away anything beautiful that I have. Everything is the same. God a cave and Ehrlich they hear this voice thing? How is that? I remember that Mona Geraghty when do our opinion have I not deprived you the beauty of speaking to me for 40 years? Am I not taking from your heart the beauty of the connection that you had with me, then I take that away from you? What do you think is more valuable than that? What you were waiting for me take your car away? Or your your home? Or your house? Or your
profession? Or your No, no, I took away the most valuable thing. You don't speak to me anymore. And when you do, you're not focused. And you have no connection. You don't feel nothing? And there's no question at all. I took that away. You don't find joy in it. You don't find it's not real. It's not real to you anymore. It's just something you do because that's what you have to be there's nothing there. It's completely empty. did not take that away from you. What do you mean, I didn't I didn't punish you. I punish you a long time ago. Oh, you're punished. You don't even know that you are willing to do business or Subhanallah Salam. So that's what I think. I love this area. I love when
Allah you're here. It gives me hope. This this deadbeat heart can be granted life just like Allah subhanaw taala grants it to this dead Earth, he'll grind into this deadbeat heart of mine. And even if I don't deserve it, which I don't, even if I'm not working hard enough towards gaining that, or, or
deserving that. Earning that then he can he'll still do it. If he wills he will do it. And if he wants, he can do it. And I have hoped that he will. And that's how you should live your life. And keep keep on doing things. Keep on doing things to try and hurt yourself a little bit up to Allah subhanaw taala. So maybe he does it for you. Keep on doing things to remind Allah subhanaw taala that you're trying maybe not your best, but you're trying you're doing something you're I'll be I'll do this, maybe maybe you'll grant my heart that little bit of, of what it needs.
So that's that's the piece, let's read a after it, where you're going to see that we're going to have a switch, a complete switch of the narrative. If you go back to a number 11 And we talked about that peace, Allah subhanaw taala I'll summarize within Hadith for you at the end, if you didn't attend the whole thing. I'll summarize it for you. So you see the movement between materialism and spirituality in such a beautiful synchrony throttle surah. But he talked about the club, he talks about giving loans lending Allah subhanaw taala. He's saying lend me lend me and I will deal you with all will deal with you wherever you lend me and I will take it and I will make it more than
ever, once you send it to me, don't let it to anyone else. So after he goes through this passage that like we kind of revise together that's all spiritual, that talks about he talks about your milk PM, talks about an experience that we have yet to actually go through something that's very, very spiritual. And he reminds us that your spirituality, you need to have that for sure. Make sure you work for it. Allah will does have the ability, he can grant it to you if you want. Stop. Stop waiting.
The time is now to fix this after this heavy focus on your little Calvin's show of your heart. It takes you back again. The materialistic aspect of the deen again, like with almost no, there's no graduality do it's just a switch. It's a flip back and forth because that's how it is. Both come hand in hand. Your heart is with Allah and your hand is doing the work at the same time. At the same time as your heart is fully connected with La Ilaha illa Allah your hand and you're you're doing the work physically, you're taking care of things, you're making a difference. So recite those verses in Charlottetown. He's a very beautiful as well as with the Hadith, isn't it? Yeah. And I feel I'm
taking longer than I shouldn't have to hurry because I don't want it to end. It's actually a lot of is so much for us to take and I hope that you're reading it maybe just a week a little bit and trying to reflect on some of the verses. The point of these lessons is not to go I'm not doing
In a deep dive into every single word and every linguistic variation, and looking at it, and I'm not doing that, because I feel like that's something for someone who is going to be studying like a bachelor's degree in deceit or something like that. But for those who want to reflect upon the Quran, the point of these verses to give you a compass, explain to you how the verses work together, how the sutras work together, how the verses work together, what the point is, give you some some some points that you can reflect upon, so that you can contemplate on your own because that's the beauty of the Quran because your contemplation on the Quran will be different than someone else and
you will take from it something that will help you help your heart and help your story. And that's what I think we should be trying to do. And that's the point of these doodles. Okay, we'll start from number 18 Ooby lay in a shame on your body in
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
in fidelity now we'll move forward the party web app or Agulla. Portal Dawn has
its URL most solid de pinna, so it's initially Immortelle Saudi Tina, initially, and that wording you find that in the Quran, like it is there. It's not like it's not there in the Quran, it is there. But the audible sometimes when you have a before a letter,
especially if the letter is similar to it in its origin, the macula in the mouth, the other will do a lump mean they will they will fuse the two letters together. And I talked about that a little bit when we are talking about that when we decided to to come together, because I told you for help me mood deck here. So it used to be moved tackier, and then they they put them together and then they removed the damage. So they played they took the doll and then they put it in the fuse into the tub and attacked with their shed. That's not very fun to say. So they turned it into a duck and they did this all the time. And this is a normal function of the Arabic language that happens almost always
and you'll find a lot of examples of it in the Quran. I'm just pointing this one out to you because it's not Elmo Saudi Pina No, it's al Musa dp and because the origin is El motel Saudi is clean and they're different because al Musa the cleaner without us without effort without a shutdown Mossad means those who believe in something else the moose Saudi clean are those who give charity. So they're a little bit different are those who prove their honesty. That's really what it means if you want to, if you want like the actual linguistic meaning, and Mossad is the one who believes mood test is the one who proves their belief with action.
Very, very accurate, which is why we call what do we call an active charity?
Yeah, why? Because it's proof of honesty. Right? So because the root which is honesty, being honest, for America, the why are we talking about sadaqa as an act of charity, so we became an active charity because acts of charity, when you give money, that is the best evidence of the honesty or the truthfulness of your faith. Because men give money That's what hurts, right is your pocket giving your wealth so it became such a it became that's what it's about. So McCarthy, pica Sadako new smile on someone's face. It's all those in charities already charity. It's a horrible translation. It really is. When you smile on someone's face, it's an act of charity. No, it isn't.
It's an act. It's an act of, of honesty or truth is evidence of honesty of your faith. That's what it is. You are proving that your faith is truthful, by actually doing something about it. Like you're claiming, I believe Allah and Allah prove it. So I'm gonna do a few things to prove it. Everything that you do that proves it is a sadhaka what is the thing that is the most difficult to do that really proves it giving money? So that became the word sadaqa. It became synonymous, even though that's not the actual meaning. Does that make sense? Or am I? Okay? Well, most of the cleaner, you can say those who give charity fine, but really what it means are those who are going
to prove the truthfulness or the honesty of their claim. When they say I believe in Allah, Allah, you do. Okay. How do I know that's true? I need evidence. Tell me something. When you say Yeah, can I will do what ya can sustain Salah Allah subhanaw taala answers you every time and he says hi there beanie obey. Now Abdi, This is between me and my servant. What he means by that is that you have to prove, we'll see, we'll see. We'll see. Live your life. We'll see if that's true. You're saying it's you and only you whom I serve and you and only you will who might seek aid and support from? That's what you're saying? Yes, era? We'll see. Go ahead. Let's see. Let's see if that's true.
How do I prove that sadhaka
is the proof, the physical proof of what you believe in so and of course, it's a perfect word to be used. And so it's the Hadith where the spiritual the spiritual piece needs to be
To prove and physically understand how this is trying to understand the synchrony of it, you can't have Islam that is fully only spiritual or only materialistic, because Islam is a spiritual belief that has to manifest itself physically. We have to see the evidence, how do I know that you truly that you love Allah subhanho? wa taala? How do I know it will become obvious in the way you treat people around you, and whom you support in the socket that you give, in the time that you spend in the jihad that you perform. That's how it's going to be obvious. Or else you can claim whatever you want. And you can sit and listen to a dentist like this and cry and bawl your eyes out, bawl your
eyes out and they go beat your wife at home and no one cares. Allah subhanaw taala doesn't care about what you're doing it all your tears mean nothing. You choose to be nothing, you're actually going to come back and you're going to be punished for them. When
you sit down, you read the Quran and you make dua and you're sobbing and then you go take the meal off of your sister, or you go in your home, your neighbor, or you go and you and you take mud haram or you go and use backstab people or gossip about others. No, no. You see those actions are evidence of something different. Those actions are not evidence of a belief in Allah, those are evidence of something completely different. So you say you believe in Allah. Yes. Well show us the evidence shows the actions that prove that you're so it's a spiritual acceptance that will manifest itself physically, but it has to have a spiritual essence. Meaning, I'm not here to tell you that if you
listen to one of these lessons and and your heart moves, and you saw that you're bad, no, of course not. Of course not. I'm just saying that if there's no materialistic or physical evidence of that, then there's something missing and there's problematic, but no, we're here trying to learn to do that. Because we want to connect, because we want to feel that that that harmony, that tranquility, that serenity, that closeness, that love with Allah Subhanallah so we here's his name, our hearts move. And we're in a moment of clarity and peace. Like I used to like the some of the scholars I spent time with, it was who just say his name Allah and you look at their faces and they were just
happy you know? They were just happy like that's it they didn't need it was satisfied. Just the what they were feeling as they said his name jealousy Allah who was more than enough more than enough they didn't need anything else. I envied them in a good way. A good way the poor and quiet to go away from them. I used to envied them I wish I could feel that because that's so meaningful. That all you need to do is just say his name and you feel so close to them that they have something to prove it
they proved it the people they really approved they took from dunya nothing they work day and night. They've never they never harmed us so they gave all their time to students for for nothing in return. They asked for nothing so they had something to prove there was there was physical evidence of that have that read of that reality that exists inside of them we can't survive with one of these two things you just can't okay
we continue the alien shelter Anna EULA Fula whom what to whom? ajilon ketene

Well levena Kefa work at verbal be yeah Tina
says to pounce on it indeed those who prove the honesty or the truthfulness of their belief or their claim. Male and female again, you can seem so to Hadid there is this continuous theme of talking about belief people both male and female. So at the beginning of the page, you know much about me, Nina? Well, I mean, at the end of the day after it you're gonna if you're gonna if you're taught to, and then again, I'm also depending on the party, because there is a common belief unfortunately that that when it comes to spirituality and materialism, somehow women and men differ.
And they don't, don't the same men and women when it comes to their role in
Having carrying both manifesting both experiencing both are equal in the eyes of Allah subhana wa Tada. So just like there's a movement, there's Mina, and this is it, I'm gonna if there's anyone in this audience who does move their subject, there's a mute. So they all have the same. So they so it's not misunderstood that this aspect here is more directed towards one gender or No, no, no, it's the same. So whenever, whenever, whenever you find Allah subhanaw taala. Using that phrasing in the Quran, there's usually a very good reason of why he's talking male men and women limit women. Other times, it's because there's no reason for you to think that men would be different than women. But
every once in a while, he'll use both, just because there may be a misunderstanding. Or there may be a myth somewhere that somehow men and women when it comes to this aspect, they differ they don't.
Spirituality, materialism for women and women matter equally the same, and they are both required to have the proper balance, equally the same, that's very important.
So he says supine Adana, welcome up Allah, Corbin Hasson and those who lend Allah subhanaw taala. A beautiful loan, God has said they're not they're giving it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala they're giving it to him generally, generally, when they're happy with whatever they get back, your wife will at home, it will be time as many fold for them, whatever you want, Kareem in addition to the to the fact that they're going to get their loan back times may fall, they're also going to be granted a beautiful reward from Allah subhanaw taala. This is the same wording if you just turn the page and look at the last number living mother, the lady which we recited last week or the week
before, rather than the lady your Korean Hola, Corbin, Hassan and Eva who will who will who are your own Korean. So that verse was who will Are there any of you, which of you Whom have you will lend Allah subhanaw taala do this alone. And Allah Subhana Allah will take it and times it many fold for him and give him a beautiful reward in addition, and then he goes through those verses of spirituality. And he says LM, Levine, and ALM and Allah, you're here, now you're built up. And then he says in animal subjects, indeed those who will offer Allah that loan that we talked about, it's like you remember the loan we just talked about in a few verses before. Indeed, those who offer it
male or female,
will have at times many fold and will be given a beautiful reward.
The only point of you increasing an Iman, is you increasing in your good deeds. That's the point. What's the point of your email level going up and your deed level staying the same? Or the higher that comes from you towards others is not there? Or doesn't mean anything or it's not increasing? Or it's not going? What's the point? I don't understand. I don't know if there is one, which is why these two verses are kind of sneak peeking each other 11 and 18. They look at each other from across the page with verses that remind us of the of the difficulty of your multicam and the importance of investing in our light or in our light and assure that we should have just to tell us again, tell us
that again in animals, you know animals of the ecology. Well, Paula Corbyn has an annual BAFTA whom
he says to pound to Allah, Xena, Manu Billa. He also li he will eco Homosassa Deikun where shahada were ended up being the home at your own Manu. There are two ways of serving God.
There's living for Allah, there's dying for Allah. Both are beautiful living for Allah is more of you.
See, a Sandeep Shaheed shahada, which is the plural of Shaheed is a martyr, someone who dies for the sake of Allah Subhan. And there are other uses for the word by the way, can be used as an example or as a standard for people to hell to but you have to have the right context for that to be the meaning. And there are a context for that, like forgetting for either jitna mean Coolio Mati Misha he would be kinda hula Isha he'd only sang to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, what are you going to do when you bring from every single nation a standard or an example we bring you as the standard of this OMA, now as the martyr, even in really the word martyr as someone who dies for the sake of
Allah. Its usage of the word Shaheed is taken from the concept that that person is the golden standard of sacrifice. Because what's, what bigger sacrifice is there than giving your life? There's nothing so that's why the word Shaheed, which is an example or a standard is going to was synonymously used to describe someone who died for the sake of Allah, just because that's so difficult to do, because everything is cheap. So I'll talk I'll talk so it doesn't doesn't cost much you just we're just talking a little bit of money at a time when your your life is on the line. Well, that's when your true colors come up. That's when that's when your that's when it Yeah, and I
hope that we're never put in that situation. See, I mean, surely you never you have to, it's very hard and if you are put in that situation that you lost by the gratitude, the strength and the bravery and the courage and the and the sincerity to do the right thing and speak the right words and and stand your ground because so hard. It's very hard so it's all fun and games until your neck is on the line. all fun and games until the neck is on the line. Mark my words. Right now. You're next on the line. Invest in yourself.
invest in your iman so that if a moment comes where it is on the line you don't you don't do something you shouldn't have to remember I talked about this years and years ago and so it's like
when he says to pounce, I will I will do that today him in a capacity her so much so it will fit next to her kamatera birth will be her into your car. It's all the people of Medina, had they entered.
I've been a driver and kurush entered Medina from the different two openings, most of you would have been asked to leave their dean. And most of you would have not hesitated except a little bit. That didn't happen. None of them left their dean, all the Muslims held on to their spam. But Allah finally told them, by the way, had they entered, most of you would have given most of you wouldn't have stood their ground, just as a reminder for all of you. Scary because ALLAH SubhanA knows what my breaking point is. He knows to what degree I hold on, it's very scary. It's very shameful, actually, actually very embarrassed of it.
Because I have a breaking point, he knows that supplements out he's just shielding you from it. No, no, I'm not gonna let that happen to me, I could just push you to the point where you'll lose everything. But I'm not gonna let it happen. Why maybe you should invest a little bit. Maybe you shouldn't get rid of that breaking point. Maybe you need to strengthen your Eman so he doesn't have it anymore. Or you make it very difficult for your faith to break. Maybe you can't fix it 100% Or maybe maybe you can take something that's very fragile and strengthen it before Allah subhanaw taala was doing yet to come your way and then you lose it. Understand the problem
which is in the belief, well, Athena Armand, and those who believe in Allah subhanaw taala. And his and his prophets, when he got home was so deep on door those are the ones who are who are able were able to prove the truthfulness of their belief. Right? So defense of Sadiq is someone who said something and all of their behaviors and actions were this aligned with what they said. Like they said it they did it perfect, perfect alignment. There was nothing missing. They didn't claim to believe in something and then not really deliver No, they delivered fully. Those are the ones who lived for the sake of Allah Subhanallah they said we they said we lived for the sake of Allah and
they actually lived for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. But what about those who died a bit too early? What shahada ended up, be him Let him at your room window and those who died with the sake of Allah. They have waiting for them their reward and they're late, don't worry. There's some people like I didn't live long enough. Some Sahaba did some Sahaba Muslims for maybe a year or two Sahaba died when they were 21 and 22. Very young. They didn't spend a lot of time with the prophet Ali Assad was the Noah story of the of the
European slave around haber who were accepted Islam. And we stood by the prophet out against the law to Islam and died five minutes later during the war. And Allah Subhan Allah and the Prophet alayhi salam laughed and thought I would do a DACA agenda. Let me just do the law. He says, there's a servant who is entering Jannah he never prostrated was never made one suit not even once, but he's going to gender because
sometimes people are well, I didn't I didn't get a lot, a lot of time to prove anything. You die for the sake of Allah so that that's that's equivalent, that's equivalent, you get the same but what's obviously more meaningful is living for the sake of Allah. The probability of people in this room, dying for the sake of Allah versus living for the sake of Allah is staggering. Most of you will live for the sake of Allah. If you choose to, most of you, most of us will not be required to die for the sake of Allah. So remember that remember that that your golfer the opportunity to be with Levine Emanuel Biller, he also Lee, hula, Eagle homosocial depot, those are the ones who live the life that
proved the the truthfulness, the honesty of their claim and their beliefs
are Shahadat were endorsed by him.
And then when Latina Cafaro workers there will be tuna and those who disbelieved and turn their backs to what they knew was the truth. I've talked to you about the word because they will many, many times. And I think it's important that you properly understand it because it does make a difference. The Quran is very accurate with the wordings it uses. Navarro is disbelief for any reason. We don't know the reason it doesn't matter. Is Scofield is just someone doesn't believe we don't care why his devil is someone who turned their back to that wish that they believe to be the truth. So Canada is lying Canada is refusing to believe in something that you
assume is truthful and correct. Meaning you're looking at the two odds. And this thing here seems to be the right one. But you're going to disbelieve in it for some personal reason you're gonna you're gonna say no to it for some personal problem for a whim or desire or jealousy or, or some agenda that you got. But as far as you can tell, out of all the narratives that are there, this one here makes the most sense, but you're gonna say no to it anyway, that's the that's the big deal.
Quran doesn't say wait, don't do it little caffeine
is still in because the bean and it's many, many times, many, many, many times the coin is filled with it actually the the harshest, the harshest punishments in the Quran, almost exclusively are for tick deep. Go for as much more open. There's still punishment don't get me wrong, but it's not seen as the same way because it's an umbrella term is disbelief. Maybe the person didn't have Islam presented to them appropriately or at all, or whatever. I'm a tech Zeb it was clear.
About eight to in case the otter Well, Allah may Allah, Allah Yara person who will turn their back they knew that they knew he was he was he was truthful. So Allah, Allah, Allah, He knew he was truthful, they turned his back anyway.
And in the Noah's story, when it would show him it was talked about in this area. So with an adult, will sit with software and then he will say
the Hadith in the narration is actually authentic, or those historical and narrations that actually have authentic authenticity, you find it and see it with him in his heart and even he shall you'll find it in a family. However, he as well and 32nd A couple of other neat collections in the have narrations worth, where he sits there and he says, I'm in the Alamo and know who thought I indeed I actually I know he's he's truthful about it. So it was like what what
was it? Who who are you speaking of madmen? You know what? I don't know what I can couldn't know of any Hashem FRSA Eddie Hearn Yeah, Toluna, mineka and pulumi NACA, but my family and his family are always are always competing. We're competing like, Horse, horse race is what we call resources, the resources that will see it when people put money on. They say we have this in our in our family. And we say we have this in our family. They say we have this in our family, we say we have this in our family, we're trying to compete with them in terms of shutoff terms of honor and status and call Illuminati. And then they say we have a prophet.
And Elena Behati, what am I gonna get a profit from? I didn't think of that. I thought of that, then I would have done but so I can't, I can't believe in him. believing in Him is basically going back on everything I've done all my life. So it wasn't an issue that he just didn't. It wasn't at the standard makes sense to him. Wasn't like we explained it. In the law. He's like, I know, I can't see it. I can't see it. I can see it. It seems to me that these rocks make more sense and make more sense. No, it just he didn't like it wasn't even about Laila in the law, which most of the time it isn't. Most of the time it's not has nothing to do with it. Most of the time believing in this
believing unfortunately is not attached to the actual creed. That's very frustrating. frustrating for people in many many ways. Be very careful know exactly why it is you believe in what you believe in. It has to be the simplicity, the clarity, and the undisputed truth of law in the law and everything else is just a bonus. Like if your parents are Muslim ah, rates I'm in a Muslim community even better. Oh, I can read the Quran. Oh, yeah, two thumbs up. But that's all bonus. The reason is because La ilaha illa. Allah is the only thing that makes sense within the universe that you live in. When we have discussions with people I think we should go back to don't discuss Islam and go
into details. Don't that's such a waste of your don't do that. Don't Don't do that. If he wasn't asking you what about, you know, the verses that talk about pizza? Whatever? No, no, no, no. We're going to talk about that. Yeah, in the Luddites, what you start from you start from the basic understanding of the world and but you don't go into the the nitty gritty of so that's not that's a complete waste of time. That is not helpful and you're not going to get anywhere. It's only gonna make you very frustrated, because that's what we have to remind ourselves of the concept of la ilaha illa.
This what he's saying subhanaw taala he pointed out for us, those who physically materialistically prove the honesty and truthfulness of their faith and offer Allah a beautiful loan will be granted a beautiful reward, and they'll have their loan returned to them, many, many fold.
And those who believe in His prophets, Allah and His prophets are the ones who are subdeacon are the ones who approved the honesty and truthfulness of of their of their claim. And the marchers are going to have their reward and they're late on the day of judgment. And those who disbelieve and refuse to believe when it makes sense to them. Those are the ones who are going to be living in the hellfire.
And this is just stating some of the basic agreed upon costs if you have 10 more minutes perfect let's read a number 20 and talk about that a little bit jump yeah learning and I'll hire to duniya la Eboo. Wala Woon was Ina.
We'll learn so that's how it sounds. We're there and the answer is a second
jumping up and down, and then boom, there you go from a well to another while with a little bit of a hook. Now this is a little bit complicated if you haven't done did read before, and that's okay. But it's important we're left womb was enough. So just kind of watch out for that sound that is supposed to come out of your nose. So any guna any noon or remnant of a noone has to come through your nose has to come through your nose so if you close your nose you feel Whoa, you can hear it you can hear it coming through your nose.

So whenever you say it's important that you don't, if you don't know how to say it, at least don't make it obviously wrong. So don't give it a Don't make it sound like a wall. So it's not a so not worry of that's for sure. You don't want to do that. And it's not, it doesn't have a jump to it like a data. So
either you don't give it a color color. But God doesn't have a color color has to stay very silent and kind of stable where it is. And then it has to have that heaviness. So it's not worried. It's very, very, very, very, you can hear that. Coming back from the back of my mouth. And it comes from basically the totality of your tongue, your tongue becomes very thin and wide, and it sticks to the upper palate, almost completely covering it leaving almost no, no room for air or anything else to come. And then you give it a slow, slow movement, where he where he where he won. So you have to kind of learn to and that's important. Why because we have that intuitive Fatiha. So well, no Walla
Walla Walla, you can hear the blood coming from so you have to give it a little bit of that work. So is it a funny story just for your own amusement. So when I when I did my,
one of my teachers had to admit one of my teachers, he didn't like it. And then none of the teachers, none of this, none of their shields, by the way, in any country, especially in Sham will like anything that you say at any point when you first meet them, everything is wrong, and which is fine, you have to go and have to go redo it redo. I've redone this like 100 times because no one's happy with anything. And they have to fix it for yourself. So I remember he didn't like the budget like something about it. So I'm sitting in my room, and I'm just and he told me it was we go get a mirror and then stare at it and then say and look at your mouth and all that. So I'm doing that. And
I was maybe 16 or something and I'm sitting in my room and I'm making these noises and my father opens after a few minutes I look and I see my father opening the door just looking through the door with just with his eyes and saying what are you doing?
I'm just what are you doing? I'm sitting there in Wah Lee and he's looking what do you what are you doing inside there? So it's actually a letter that requires a lot of practice so so if you're someone who's working on a little bit of digital if people don't feel bad if something's taking time it does it's it's supposed to take time as normal even if you speak the the even if Arabic Is your mother tongue it's going to take you a while to fix it. So this is not something specific for people who speak Arabic as a second language you know, even though they're speaking as a first language, we'll struggle with this letter for a while. So just kind of keep that in mind as you train and show
Donna what to do near
I was hoping to finish 21 We're not going to face 21 So I'll just go through a little bit of 20 So he says to pound again Erlang again. So you can see that we have two verses and sorted till Hadid where he says Erlang know the four
Following. So he said that in the verse that I explained in some degree of detail today, and then after that he gave us some commentary Subhana wa Tada about those who prove their faith through behaviors, and then those who are going to be seen as the owners shahada on the day of judgment and those who are going to be in the wrong destination. That's the last part of cinema on that day as well. There he says, Again, no the following. And again, this is you can see how Allah Subhan is going to balance is balancing for us the materialistic and the spiritual aspect, because this verse here is actually going to talk a lot about the the very primitive nature of the human race, no of
this about LM animal Hayato dunya. And Allah means that dunya the the whatever's coming next is the exclusive Schpeel that you need to know, just this is this is the bottom line. And this is exclusive, it's not emphasis, and numbers not to emphasize something in normal Soderling this emphasis, indeed, the most of misogyny, and most of the Anima they call it caffeine and McCool for me, meaning is to say exclusively, meaning this is the only thing you need to know it's not emphasizing it. He doesn't talk about dunya he talks about higher to dunya. And I've talked about this in this halacha other Halal culture as well. There's a big difference between the two dunya is
one thing and Hayato dunya is something different, and they have different they're described differently in the Quran. And the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam dunya is, is where the Prophet alayhi salatu salam lived is where we are granted our chance to become good is when the Quran where the Quran was revealed, there are good things about dunya. And there are negative things about dunya. Now, everything about it, if it's used in the sense of something that you are running after materialistically is seen as negative, but everything about it is negative because dunya is where Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam saw the light of day and lived. So it can't be negative because he
was here out of his Latos. And there has to be something positive about it. But I'll hire to dunya is different. It's the low life. That's what it means and higher life at dunya. Low the low life, the primitive life, the life based on on basic instincts, the life that is going to be guided by basic instincts, instincts of your primal brain.
We are mammals, whether we like it or not. We are mammals. And we have mammals like instincts. And we know we do because we were once children. And if you had children before, you know, they behave exclusively based on these mammal like instincts.
my one and a half year old are out in the park. And there was a ball a rocket, a water gun and some funny toy. And he didn't he wanted them all. He couldn't carry them all. But he wanted them all. And I stood there and watched him for seven minutes crying as he's trying to pick them all up. So no one takes them away. He wants to take them all because he wants them all even though there's other kids and there's you could choose one and play. No, he wants all of them. He can't carry them, because they're bigger than him altogether. But he wants them all. And he will scream until I just watched him hit some Adela. This is it. This is the mammal like instincts kicking in. He wants it all the
Nerf swans at all, and wants nothing for anyone else. That's the norm. That's normal to feel like that is actually normal for a child to feel like that is normal. Don't feel bad. If your kids like that. That's normal. That's just telling you this is a healthy, a healthy young man, a healthy young girl and boy, it's normal. It's normal for you to feel like that is abnormal for you to live like that when you get older. It's cute when he is to it ain't cute when he's 20 or 10 or six for that matter. It's not cute anymore, because this child or this young adolescent or this adult should have learned by now what how to behave regarding these feelings.
So he's telling us a pile of data here is not that this is what higher duniya should be. He's not encouraging it. He's just explaining it. The low life that I don't want you to live is the following. It's not even it's playing activity that has no goal aside from your leisure. Well no one distractions or behaviors that are lower oh, we're done with totally okay, so I'll stop and I'll explain all this in Charlottetown and x because it doesn't take a lot of time so we'll start we'll do this and show next week didn't have the Shinola halen to start to break also Allahu wa Salam o ALLAH can only be named Mohammed bin Salman
