mean subtle Lomo cinema about a Corona Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ultramarine Amoeba

00:00:08--> 00:00:16

but those are the brothers that are wishing to leave if you can do so inshallah quietly and for the rest of you, you may want to move forward.

00:00:17--> 00:00:21

So in today's talk, we heard the recitation of surah to Lara

00:00:23--> 00:00:42

and surah. Two darauf is a murky surah meaning that it was revealed preheater before the hinter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so it is somewhat unique because it is a very long sword of the Quran. And generally the Maquis surah in the Quran are shorter surah in the Quran.

00:00:43--> 00:01:14

And so if you go from the beginning of the Quran from Surah Baqarah, another Imran and Nyssa and so on, you find that the generally madonie sources post Hydra revealed after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated to Medina Sora to LA is the exception to that rule. And there are some others as well, that you find towards the beginning of the Quran and they are long, the chapters are long and the verses are long. And they are 300 sutras McKee surah. sotloff is one of those songs.

00:01:15--> 00:01:54

So total RF also from its from the interesting points concerning this Sora is that some of the scholars said that it is the first surah in the Quran that was revealed that contained the stories of the prophets. So the general stories or the general sutras that were revealed in the meccan period, didn't go into detail concerning the stories of the prophets and their nations. They didn't go into the detail about the stories of who then Salah Hancher even looked at him Sam, and all of the other various prophets that are learned so Virgil mentions within the Quran, but in Surah, Allah Rasool Allah subhana wa tada mentions the stories of the prophets as we had in today's recitation,

00:01:55--> 00:02:34

we have the story of Adam, we have the story of Noah, we have the story of who then sila and schreiben. Note and Musa alayhi wa Salatu was Salam. The other surah that was also revealed towards the beginning of Islam that also contains stories of the prophets is Surah Saad surah Saad is in the 23rd juice of the Quran, and the scholars have to see the different as to which one of these two was revealed. First, it's what Assad come down first, and then sort of locked off, or was it sort of allowed off and then sort of saw, both of them contained stories of the prophets, but in Surah, Assad, the stories are of different prophets, we have the stories of the prophets that would

00:02:34--> 00:03:05

actually man and he sent them and then a large soldier mentioned certain points about a job and about some of the other prophets of Allah subhana wa Tada, the commonality between the two sort of sort of cloud off and sort of solid, the commonality between the two is the story of Adam Alec, who set up the story of Adam is mentioned in both. So which one came down first? Was it sort of sod or was it sort of Clara scholars different over this? Either way, sort of to nod off is from those sources that are large social first spoke to us about the stories of the prophets,

00:03:06--> 00:03:45

the name of Sora, to the Allah, Allah Allah according to some of the scholars of Tafseer it refers to the barrier and a large religion in the whole passage of the surah he refers to the people of the era of tabula rasa, and they are off is a barrier that will be placed between the people of Paradise and the people of Hellfire on the Day of Judgment. And Allah subhanaw taala in Surah, Allah Rasool Allah is a story about the messengers gives you the stories of the prophets and the messengers, and importantly, what took place to those people who followed the prophets and followed the revelation that Allah sent to them. And those people who disbelieved who rejected the prophets and messengers

00:03:45--> 00:03:50

who disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala in this commandment to follow these prophets and messengers,

00:03:51--> 00:04:29

a lot of xojo. In the passage, he mentions the three types of people that will come in the Day of Judgment. The first of them are the people of gentlemen, the people of paradise. The second of them are the people of the fire. And the third of them are the people out are off, after whom this name, the Sora is named. analyzer widget in the surah. He mentions it in a very beautiful way. He mentions it as a discourse, a conversation that will take place between these groups of people on the Day of Judgment. And one of the ways that a large religion makes us understand human piano, as well as giving us the descriptions of Paradise and how fun and so on. One of the things that alarm social

00:04:29--> 00:04:54

does is he gives us the conversations that will take place between various groups on the day of judgment from amongst those groups, or the people of Paradise in the people of Hellfire having a conversation, even though there is between them as a last resort being a human. There is a barrier a veil between them, but still they can hate one another. So learnzillion says one of the most horrible gender deals happen now and

00:04:58--> 00:04:58

tomorrow

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

The people of general will call out to the people of the fire. And they will say to them that we have found the promise that allow me to us to be true. What is the promise that allow me to the people of Paradise, that if you believe, if you follow the prophets, if you follow the revelation, if you have a lost commandments, you will have your sins forgiven, and you will be given this amazing reward of gender, we found that promise that alarming to us true for halwa

00:05:27--> 00:05:57

bukem hochkar have you to found the promise that allow me to you to also be true? What is the promise that allow me to the people of the fire, that if they disbelief, they reject the messengers, they disobey last commandments, then a large xojo will punish them for that disbelief and that sin? And so Allah Subhana, Allah in the Quran, he tells us, that the people of gender will say to them, have you found now the promise of a lot to also be true, all they will say yes, for other than

00:05:58--> 00:06:30

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah volley mean, so cola between them will call out and will say that the curse of Allah is upon those who are oppressing. The curse of Allah means that anyone who is cursed by Allah is removed from his mercy, removed from his grace, removed from any blessing that may have reached them. So the people of the fire losses will have not even a single blessing, a single grace, a single issue that will make life easier for them more palatable for them.

00:06:31--> 00:06:39

So then Alonzo, when he speaks about this, people that are in the middle, this group that are in the middle, a lot of us have a lot of

00:06:41--> 00:07:22

an alliance on the scholars of Tafseer. They see that the people of the are off or those people who on the Day of Judgment, that good deeds will be equal to their evil deeds, they will be at a level of balance, the good deeds are equal in weight to the evil deeds. So as we know, all of the people will go through what is called the means on the scale of good deeds. And that is the the balance the scale that allows us to weigh our good deeds, the weighing scale of Allah subhanaw taala. The meezan does not just measure quantity, doesn't measure quantity, knowledge, our scale that measures weight and measures quantity, but rather a large digital scale also measures quality. It also measures

00:07:22--> 00:07:34

intention, measures, sincerity measures, those things that we are not aware of, but that Allah subhanaw taala knows the impact that those actions have had upon others. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:36--> 00:07:36

said,

00:07:38--> 00:08:15

perhaps one day he overcame 1000 dirhams. He said, O Messenger of Allah, how does one overcome 1000 he said, because the one who gave one Dirham and charity only own two. So he gave half of his wealth in charity. But as for the one who gave 1000 he's a millionaire billionaire. for him. 1000 was pocket change didn't even think twice. So a large soldier is looking at the intention, looking at the circumstance, looking at all of those factors that play a role in the way that we worship Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's why the Prophet sets on a LaGuardia He will send them that a person will come in the Day of Judgment. All he did in this life was eat and drink, meaning have his body mass

00:08:15--> 00:08:53

is extremely heavy. But in the sight of Allah, He will not weigh the wing of a mosquito doesn't mean anything. In the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that this world and everything within it is equal to the width of a mosquito to a mosquito, meaning that it's worthless in the sight of Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala is measuring these people. So the people of gentlemen, some of them will only have very few deeds in terms of number, but the quality of those deeds are so high, that Allah will forgive them for all of their sins. Like in the famous Hadith of the card of the batata, the famous hadith of a man who come in 19 schools of evil deeds when they are enrolled,

00:08:53--> 00:09:28

each school will go as far as the horizon as far as the eye can see. And those are all evil deeds mentioned and scrolls, and it's only good deeds that he presents before a lot is a card that says la la, la la. But such was his he man such as his sincerity, such as his hope and fear in Allah, that that card when it is weighed against those maintenance problems will be heavier in the skills of a large surgeon so Allah will forgive him, and then trim into powders. But then there are other people as we know also from the sooner who will come with prayer, and they will come with sada and they will come with fasting, but they will come with so many evil deeds that they have done so much

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

oppression that they've committed, so much hurt that they've caused that a large surgeon will take those good deeds away from them and He will give it to those people to right the wrongs that were done to them, until that person will have their good deeds or nothing in the sight of Allah doesn't have anything left. Or those other people that were told in the Quran, who will come thinking that they did good deeds that they did good, but because of a lack of intention and sincerity, or because they didn't follow the path of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Allah won't accept any of them. They will be rendered null

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

And void. And the law mentions that those are the people who will suffer the most loss on the Day of Judgment. A person who comes thinking that they did so much in this dunya. But when it's presented before, Allah doesn't mean anything worthless, doesn't have any weight in the sight of a large soldier. And that is why the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never took any of the good deeds for granted. You have the likes of Omar with all of his Jihad and all of his prayer and all of his charity, and all of his efforts in service to Islam. And then companions like relief and others and more either of your loved one and so many others. When they were on their deathbed,

00:10:35--> 00:11:16

they would cry out of fear of Allah subhana wa Tada. And they will be reminded of the years of service and companionship that they have to their names, but they would be afraid that those good deeds were not accepted by a larger regional ceremony a loved one would say that if I knew only one of my deeds was to be accepted, I would place all of my hope and trust in that one day, just one because I know that at least one Allah has accepted and Allah says in the Quran, in Nehemiah taba Allahu, Allah only accepts from the people of piety. So la mentions his group of people, the people of the fire, and the people of the gender are in the various boats. And these people, the people

00:11:16--> 00:11:58

that are offering the station in between the two, they are there and the balance of deeds are level they could teach and the evil deeds are equal in weight. So now which of the two that do they go through? So the people of the of the fire will say to them that you will be coming towards us, your deeds good and bad or equal, that means that you follow us you don't have enough to tip that scale of good deeds. But then a large religion says in the Quran in this passage, Hola, Latina, Latina whom Allahu be Rama, are these the people that you took an oath by meeting the people of the fire, that alone will never show them mercy or the huddle agenda rather enter the enter into paradise,

00:11:58--> 00:12:40

Lahore finale kumala and there is no fear or despair upon you. And so, those people of the aarav will enter into gender and then a larger towns us that then the people of the fire when they will see this Mercy of Allah, when they will see this grace that a large surgeon has given to these people who are equal indeed, then they also will have this hope that Allah will show to them some mercy. So they will call out this time they will initiate the discussion, one or the US habaneros herbal agenda, the people of the fire will call out to the people of gender. And a few arlena minalima Omarosa como la give to us from the water that Allah gave to you in Paradise, or anything

00:12:40--> 00:13:23

from a last provision, just a drop of water, just a glass of water. So immense is the torment and the punishment in the fire. So raging is that fire of hell, as the Prophet told us on a low while he was send them that the fire of this dunya of this world is only one of 70 parts of the fire of the hellfire. We know what a fire can do many rages, and it burns and forests and buildings, and in the love of mountains, how intense it is. But that fire and this dunya is only one of the 70 parts of the fire of human piano. And so, those people will see in a few arlena give to us from the water, Paulo in the law, how Rama who married and Catherine and those people of gender will say Allah has

00:13:23--> 00:14:01

made it haraam. He has made it impermissible, he has made it something which is how ROM upon those people who are in the fire. And that is the curse that alarm soldier mentioned at the beginning of that passage, not a single drop of mercy, not a single measure of mercy will be given to them. And that is why when the prophets on the lower end will send them in those a Hadith, in which he said that so and so who does such and such an action will have the curse of Allah upon them. There are Hadith, which were told that if certain actions if we do them, they will have the curse of Allah upon them. Like for example, the Hadith of the people who go to Medina in a secret boundary in the

00:14:01--> 00:14:42

harem, and they commit a crime or they give shelter to a criminal, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or even Lana to La Palma LA, oneness ledge Marin, those people are cursed by Allah, he's angels, and all of humankind. That is, the curse of Allah means that those people are not shown mercy, that Allah doesn't give to them any blessings that a large soldier doesn't write for them any good unless and until those people repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala and change their ways. So this is the passage of sort of two hours, after which the surah is named. There are those people who will have equal deeds good and bad on the Day of Judgment, and a large soldier will show them mercy. And

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

these are the people who will be at that level where they are at that minimum level. They just did enough just to pass that grade, bro prophet Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam that we shouldn't take that for granted, that it's not something that we know that Allah subhanaw taala that we will do reach the minimum level.

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

of having our good and evil deeds equal May Allah subhanaw taala makers from amongst those people who do good deeds, and that allows us to accept our deeds, especially in this month of Ramadan, that Allah was forgiveness upon us and upon our families and our communities. And this oma Subhan Allah

00:15:16--> 00:15:20
