me he Mahajan and who give what they who give what they what they give of charity, their hearts filled with apprehension, knowing that they will return to the Lord.
Inside your own I feel for your own team.
Those are the ones who hate who hastened to do good deeds, and they are foremost entertaining them
while earning Californians meaningfulness and
what are the inner
being at home, all while home Niles lemon, we do not place on any sort of burden greater than it can bear. We have a record of their deeds that speaks to truth and they will not be wronged. Have you mentioned those who combined bad deeds with with feeling secure and claimed that the fact that he had given them worldly abundance was indicative of their goodness and virtue? Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned those who combine human good with fear of him. As we mentioned yesterday, the surah speaks about the attributes of the believers and the characteristics that the meaning the believer should have. And Allah subhanaw taala after mentioning those characteristics, and then going through
the stories of some of the prophets, concerning the way that their people dealt with them and rejected them. Allah subhanaw taala is now going back to some of the attributes of the believers and so Allah azza wa jal mentions in verses 57 onwards, some of these attributes of the believers from amongst the way to stop them, as author will now expand upon is that they have fear of the Lord, that they are in reverence or of the Lord they have the fear of Allah subhanaw taala. And the fear of Allah azza wa jal means that they are constantly mindful of Allah azza wa jal conscious of Allah subhanaw taala. Every single day, every moment, every time every decision that they have to make,
they remember ALLAH subhanaw taala and they decide based upon what they know is more pleasing to Allah azza wa jal, they decide based on that basis, what to do.
Fairly those who are filled with reverence of the Lord, that is they are apprehensive, and their hearts are filled with all due to fear of the Lord, that He will judge them on the basis of justice. In that case, there will be no good deeds left to their credit, and they think negatively of themselves, that they have not carried out their duties towards Allah subhanaw taala in a proper manner, and they are afraid of losing their faith because of the knowledge that they have of the Lord and what he deserves of glorification and honor, their fear and worry dictate that they should refrain from that which causes them to fear sin and falling short and obligatory duties.
And who believe in the revelations of the Lord, that is, when his revelations are recited to them, it increases them in in in faith, they also ponder and reflect upon the verses of the Quran. And thus the meanings of the Quran become clear to them, as to its majestic nature in harmony, its lack of contradiction, where it costs, what it costs to have knowing Allah fearing him and putting one's hope in Him. And what he says about require will that will increase them in faith in ways that cannot be expressed in words. They also reflect upon the signs in the universe as Allah says elsewhere, verily in the creation of the head
In the earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, they are, there are, there are any signs for the people of understanding, although it says here that the believers are those who believe in the signs of the Lord, I act. And the word I add has two translations or two meanings number one, is the signs of the universe that is called an iron. So, you see of the sun, the moon, the mountains, the heavens, the earth, these are called ayat and Allah azza wa jal refers to them as such in the Quran, and other meaning of Allah is verse, and that is the revelation. So this is an iron that is an iron. That is what the author Hamlet Allah says, that the believers are those who believe in both
of those sides. They believe in the universal signs of Allah azza wa jal, the signs of the universe and the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. And they believe in the signs or the revelation of Allah azza wa jal, and both are linked, because the one who believes in the Quran must believe in those signs, and the one who truly pondered over the size of the creation and the universe, it will lead them to believe in the science of Revelation, and who do not ascribe partners to their Lord, that is, they do not openly ascribe partners to him by taking anything other than Allah as an object of worship, calling upon it, and putting their hopes in it. And they do not ascribe partners to him in
hidden or subtle ways, such as showing off and the like, rather, they are sincerely devoted to Allah alone in their words, and these in all situations, and who give and who give what they give of charity, that is give of themselves what they are instructed to give, giving whatever they are able to have prayer zurka had charity and so on, but at the same time, but at the same time, the hearts are filled with apprehension. That is the fear that when they're these are presented to him and they stand before Him, they will not save them from the punishment of Allah, because they know the Lord and are aware of what he deserves all kinds of worship. Allah azza wa jal says that from the
attributes of the believers that they do what they do, they give they spend, they do good deeds, and their hearts are always apprehensive. Aisha Radi Allahu Allah in the Hadith and Timothy, she said, I asked the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concerning this verse. And I said, O Messenger of Allah, does this verse mean, that people who do good deeds, they're praying the human sadaqa they're fasting, but at the same time, they're committing major sins. They're committing Zina, they're committing Riba, the doing major sins. And so because they're doing good deeds and major sins, the apprehensive, he said, No, or don't proceed. The what this verse means is, it's
those people who pray, and they give us a car and they fast, and they don't know because they don't have a guarantee from Allah azza wa jal, whether they will accept it. So their hearts are apprehensive, because there's two aspects to an action of good deed. Number one, is the physical performance of the good deed, doing the good deed. And number two is acceptance. Me and you are told to do the good deed to the best of our ability. Is that deed acceptable Allah azza wa jal, only Allah knows, depending on our level of sincerity, how well we did the deed or Allah azza wa jal knows best. And that is why no one has a guarantee, even when they're doing good deeds that are
being accepted by Allah azza wa jal, and that is why it was from the practice of the self, as we know that from the hours that they would make is they would ask Allah azza wa jal to accept the good deeds. So give them the ability to do good deeds, and then to accept those good deeds, as mentioned concerning this month of Ramadan, that they would ask Allah for six months to be able to witness Ramadan. And then for six months of the year that Allah accepts the good deeds of Ramadan, and that's a principle of the Quran. Because when Ibrahim Ali Salam is building the karma with the son is married, or is the dua or bene,
Taco Bell, Mina, or our Lord accept this from us. He's building the car by the House of Allah, that everyone's going to come and make the offer around and facing the worship and so many people are going to come and benefit from his act of worship, which is building the Kaaba. But even so he's saying, Oh Allah accept from me, because we don't have that guarantee. And that is when Amara, the Allah who I used to say, that if I had only one deed that was guaranteed to be accepted by Allah, I would place all of my hope at that deed, Allah accept one deed, I have all of my hope because no one has any guarantee that Allah is accepted, even that one deed. And so that is why the believer
despite all of the good that they're doing, and that's what prompted us to do even more good, because maybe last year's Ramadan wasn't accepted. I need to do better this year. Maybe my car last year, my worship last week, or last month or yesterday, wasn't up to scratch. So today I need to do better. And so the believer pushes themselves because the heart is apprehensive. That is from the attributes of the believers. Whereas from the hypocrites, that is the opposite. They do a deed which is good. And they hold it over Allah. They think that they're the ones that did the favor to Allah. Don't you see how much I prayed? I read the Quran I did this. That's what they do. That is from the
attributes of the hypocrites the believers. They do good deeds, and they never consider them to be enough. They never consider them to be good enough or enough in terms of number. Those are the ones who hastened to do good deeds, that is in the arena of competing to do good
as their main concern is that which will bring them closer to Allah, and they are focused on that which could save them from his punishment, whatever good deed they hear, or have or have the opportunity to do the hastened to make the most of it, and do that good deed. They look at the close friends and chosen ones of Allah who are ahead of them, and I'm on the right hand and left hasten to do all that is good and struggling to draw close to their Lord. And they try to compete with with them, as the one who is racing and competing with others may go ahead because of his efforts and striving for he may not do so, because of his shortcomings. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that
these people are among the category who will be foremost he says, and they are foremost entertaining them, that is good deeds, they will attain the pinnacle, for they competed with the first rank over it was already decreed by Allah, that they will be among those who are blessed and those who are foremost, Allah azza wa jal when he says that they hasten to do good deeds, the author is saying that from the meanings of that word, you said there is that there is more than one person involved. You hasten with others, or as Allah azza wa jal says in other parts of the Quran that they make Musa they compete. The word competition means that there are other people involved. You can't compete
against yourself, you don't race yourself, you race other people. And Allah azza wa jal is saying that when it comes to good deeds, the people who race with others, so Allah subhanaw taala, doesn't command us to compete with others in terms of the dunya in terms of wealth in terms of property in terms of land, those things are important to Allah azza wa jal, but Allah tells us to compete in good deeds, you see someone doing good deeds, you want to be like them, well, you want to do more than them, not that you want them to do less or be worse off, but you see them in inspires you to do as much as them or more, and then they see you or they do even more. And that's what the companions
were like, the companions or the Allahu Allah Intermarine, they will see some of them doing good and they would want to do the same like the Hadith where the companions will poke him to the prophets of Allah wa and he will send them in the said, O Messenger of Allah, the wealthy have taken all of the good deeds, how they pray, and we pray, they fester, we fast, but they have money and we don't give sadaqa we can't give sadaqa so the prophets of salaam said to them, then make this be make be make them meet, make the Quran Allah azza wa jal. And so those companions became happy. Now they have something that those companions don't have. But those companions then heard the same Hadith. So they
started doing the same. They came back and said, O Messenger of Allah, our brothers heard what you said, and they're doing the same. The Prophet said him said that he can afford to Lula ut himedia Shah, that is Allah's fever, he gives it so every year wills, so they're competing, those companies didn't say we're giving sadaqa we don't need to make liquor, we're already doing enough. Now they hear something, and they want to compete with those of the companions, because Allah mentioned their hastening to do good. And there being foremost in that regard, some people may imagine that what is required of them and others is something that is too difficult and hard, he tells us that he does
not place on any on any sort of burden greater than it can bear, that is the burden is only as such as much as a person can bear and there will be and there will still there will still be some strength left over. It is not something that will exhaust all his strength. This is by the mercy, this is by His mercy and wisdom, so as to make the path of him. To him the path to him easy. And so that there will always be people who are racing on the path to win the race to Allah subhanaw taala in a manner that you can cope with. Allah Azza doesn't tell you to do more than you can do. And that is why even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would see people doing certain things that they
will overboard, he will tell them not to do that. Like the man who was walking, you want you to walk all the way to Mecca, and he didn't want to wear any shoes, they want to stand in the sun. And he thought that was worship, wants to make it difficult for himself easier to get to Mecca. There's different ways this man wants to make your heart. The Prophet said and said to him, tell him to write Allah doesn't need that type of worship. Allah is not telling you to go to that level. In terms of competing, Allah wants you to compete in terms of sincerity in terms of doing good man necessarily making things difficult for yourself. We have we have a record of their deeds that
speaks the truth, which is the first book in which all things are written and reflects exactly all that takes place. Hence is true and they will not be wronged. That is nothing will be destroyed. Nothing will be distracted from their good deeds and nothing will be added to their punishment or since

But the hearts are really he does have this Quran.
And they have besides that other evil deeds which they will continue to do

rune of pride in being the custodians of the sacred mosque, talking nonsense for into the night about the Quran. Here Allah tells us that the hearts of the disbelievers are really heedless, because they are steeped in ignorance, wrongdoing negligence and aversion that prevent them from reaching out to this Quran. Therefore, they are not guided by it and nothing of it reaches their hearts. When you recite the Quran we placed between you and those who do not believe in the hereafter hidden value. And we have placed covers on their hearts so that they will not understand it, and difference in their ears, because their hearts are utterly heedless of if their actions are
commensurate with their state of stubbornness and disbelief, which will result in their punishment. And, but they have besides a lot besides that, that is, besides these deeds, or the evil deeds, which they will continue to do. That is they should not find it strange that the punishment has not yet been found and befallen them, because Allah is giving them respite, so that they may finish doing all the deeds that they were meant to do according to the Divine Decree, when they have done that and completed them in completing them or they will move on in the worst state of face, worst state to face the wrath and punishment of Allah until when we seize the effluent amongst them, that
is those who live a life of ease and are only used to a life of affluence, luxury and enjoyment and have not experienced hardship. When we cease them with punishment. And they feel is touch, they will cry for help. That is they will scream in pain, because something has been falling them other than what they are used to the large region. So those people who are negligent of Allah's reminder, Allah's remembrance, Allah's revelation, Allah is the heat that Allah azza wa jal says that we will punish them. And from those examples is what Allah azza wa jal did on the battle of but there are some of the positives you mentioned in this first, look at the Alexa Bucha, Hal and Ebola hub. And
all of those people were the leaders of Quraysh wealth and power and status and fame. They would say whatever they wanted, and no one could oppose them. And then on the day of better, they were overcome by 300 Odd companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and many of the leaders of Quraysh tie their wealth help them, they honor their status, their fame, their position, their power, none of that came to the aid. And Allah is already saying that we will take them and we punish them, even though they're crying out for help, no one will come to their aid, they will cry for help, it will be said to them, Do not cry for help today, for you will receive no help from us,
because no help or support will come to them from Allah, they will not be able to help themselves and no one else will be able to help them. It is as if it will be said to them. What is what what is it that that has brought you to this deep My revelations were recited to you so that you might believe in them and accept them. But you did not do that. Rather you used to turn on your heels. That is you went back you went backwards by following the Quran. They could they could have advanced, but by turning away from it, they went backwards and became the lowest of the low. And that is what someone the Liza Qureshi used to say to the Quraysh believe in the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, and Allah will not just make you leaders of Makkah, he will make you leaders of all of Arabia. And that's what happened. Had they believed and had they been with the prophets of salaam did the Muslims conquer all of Arabia and beyond? That's what some of those people used to say to college. This man is a man of truth doesn't lie. If he seemed to believe in me, and you will become leaders of more than just the city of Mecca, believe in him, but they rejected and they refuse, and they disbelieved. And so Allah azza wa jal punished them. And Allah subhanaw taala honored the people from amongst them who did believe and it takes a man, Allah azza wa jal made them
the leaders of that part of the world have pride in being the custodians of the sacred mosque. Talking nonsense far into the night about the Quran. The commentators said that what is meant is that they were proud of it. And the pronoun rendered here as in being the custodians of the sacred mosque refers to the Kaaba or the home. In other words, they felt proud before people because of that, and they said, We are the people of the sanctuary, therefore we are better than others and have higher status than them talking not as far into the night that is gathering and talking, talking by night around the cabin. Talking nonsense refers to saying bad things about this Quran.
The way in which the disbelievers responded to the Quran was by turning away from it and telling one another to do that. Those who disbelieved said, Do not listen to this Quran. Make noise when it is recited so that you may drown in it.
And Allah said concerning them
Do you do you then pop with you then wonder at this discourse the Quran and laugh at it and not weep while you remain he lists? Or do they say he made it? He has made the Quran up himself as they had all these bad manners and attitudes, it is no wonder that they deserve the punishment. And when they fell into that they had no one to support them or save them. And they were rebuked at that point because of these bad deeds.
I felt I'm yet Deb Baldwin cola I'm
willing welling, have they not pondered the words of Allah? Or is it that there has come to them that which did not come to their forefathers? Have they not pondered the words of Allah that is, have they not reflected on the Quran and pondered its meanings? In other words, if they had pondered it, that would have led them to faith and would have prevented them from disbelieving. But the calamity that befell them was due to their turning away, this indicates that reflecting upon the Quran leads to all that is good, and protects against all that is evil. And what prevented them from reflecting upon it was the fact that there there were locks upon their hearts, or is it that there
there has come to them, that which did not come to their forefathers that is, or is or is what prevented them from believing the fact that they're there came to them, a messenger and book they had not come to their forefathers, so they were not content to follow the so they so they were content to follow the path of the misguided forefathers, and they objected to anything that differed from them. Therefore, they and others like them among the disbelievers said, as Allah tells us, likewise, we never sent anyone before you to city but it's afternoon said, We found our forefathers following a certain path, and we are following in their footsteps. The one responded to them by
saying, even if I bring you better guidance than that which you found your forefathers falling, we follow it, even if your aim is to follow the truth. And the answer expose the real thinking, as they said, rarely we disbelieve in that with which you have been sent to Allah azza wa jal is now speaking about the coloration that they're saying that they have something that has come to them that their forefathers were unaware of, so they will believe in it. And look at how Allah azza wa jal mentioned about the people of nor an iron and thermwood. And those nations, that these were some of their main justifications for rejecting those prophets and messengers, I will follow through not
on this now locoregional saying the same thing. So just as all of the prophets both the same message, the central message was the same and you can recognize the truth, because of that central message, then likewise, the disbelievers all of the nations all over time, their central message is the same as well. They're always using the same justifications, the same reasons, so that they reject the statements of Allah subhanaw taala, the revelation of Allah azza wa jal, and the message of door heat all the time, from the time of know how to use them all the way to the time of the Prophet Salam, and even today, even today, you hear people saying the same thing. No, my parents
were on something. This is what I learned from my elders. This is what I learned from my forefathers, people still have that same argument even today.
Am lamea rd for rasool
Allah Who Killed rune? Or is it that they do not know their messenger in their messenger well enough, so they reject Him. That is, is what prevented them from following the truth, the fact that their messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not known to them. Therefore they denied him and said, We do not know Him. We do not know we don't know, we don't know how sincere he is. So let us wait and see how he is.
And as those who know him, who know him about him, but that was not the case, for they knew the messenger SallAllahu Sallam very well, indeed, young and old alike knew that he had all good characteristics, and they knew him to be sincere and honest, to the extent that before his mission began, they used to call him Al Amin, the trustworthy one, so why did they not believe him when he bought them the truth with honesty and sincerity, and that is read from the wisdom of Allah subhanaw. Taala is that the prophets that were sent to people were from them from amongst him, they lived with them, they grew up with them, they knew them even before they were prophets of Allah.
Because as the author says here that if a stranger comes to you with a message, the first thing that you want to find out who is this person, what's his background? Was he come from Word? Why did he come here? What happened to him before? That whole process takes so long to find out? You have to send people that find that was it true, not true, different versions, different reports, and you do all of that. Okay. Now let's listen to what he has to say. Allah subhanaw taala remove the whole process from the Prophets and Messengers. The prophets are born amongst them grow up amongst them are known to them. So when they come with the messenger message of ALLAH, the one thing they can't
say is who's this person? Was he come from? What's he saying? They know him, as they did with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they called him trustworthy. They called him honest, they knew him. They knew his father. They knew his grandfather, they knew him for generations, his family, so at the very least, now they can attack him as an individual. So then they know that when they reject Him, it's not because he's unknown to them or his ally.
Only someone who may be a false Narita. They reject them because they reject the message that is bought as opposed to anything else. I'm Jaco Luna be Heejun biologia will help prework thoroughly happy Korean or do they say that there is there is madness in him? Rather he has bought them the truth, but most of them are averse to the truth or do they say that there is madness in Him? That is, do they say that he is insane? And this is why he said what he said. For if a person is insane, no one listens to him and his words do not come? Because he murmurs nonsense and foolish words. Allah said refuting the suggestion on their part, rather he has bought them the truth that is he
bought he has bought them that which is confirmed and based on truthfulness and justice, in which there is no difference or contradiction. So how could there be madness in the one who bought who bought it? Could he be anything but a person who is at the highest level of perfection in terms of knowledge, rational thinking and good manners, and attitude? Rather, the reality is that what prevented them from believing was that he has, he has, he has brought them the truth, but most of them are averse to the truth. The greatest truth that he bought them was the commandment of worship solely to Allah and abandon everything else there's worship besides Allah is well known that they
were averse to that, and found it strange. So the fact that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought what the truth when they were averse to the truth in the first place, is what made them deny the truth. It was not because they doubted or rejoice the messenger the messenger, or rejected the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. This is like the verse in which Allah Subhana Allah says, is not you, they disbelieve, rather is a revelation revelations of Allah that the wrongdoers deny. It is asked, Why was not why was not the truth in accordance with their whims and desires, so that they may they might believe in hastened to submit. The answer is given in the
following verse. Allah is saying here that it's not the prophets of salaam they rejected as an individual. It's the message that he brought of Tawheed of worship Allah worshipping Allah azza wa jal alone, didn't have an issue with him beforehand, before he became a prophet. They liked him, and they honored him and he used to respect him. But now that is both the message of the hate, that's what they're rejecting. So the issue is more with the message rather than the individual, while we thereby will help go
left, that is to do one thing, by Bell attina V, they carry him for whom they carry him more or you do if the truth had been in accordance with their desires, the heavens and the earth, and all those who are, who are there in would have been brought to Rouen. In fact, we have given them that which would bring them honor that is the Quran, but they turn away from that which would bring them on, if the truth had been according to their desires, the heavens and the earth, and all those who are there in would have been brought to ruin the reason being, that their whims and desires are based on wrongdoing, disbelief, mischief, and bad manners and deeds. Therefore, if the truth had followed the
whims and desires, the heavens and the earth, would have been brought to ruin because of the corruption, of conduct and control that would be based on oppression and injustice. Therefore, the heavens and the earth can only be kept in good order on the basis of truth and justice. So why wasn't the revelation in accordance to the desires of people, because number one, the desires of people differ. Every person has their own desires, I like one thing you like something else, my nature is one way you only choose some other way. Now imagine the 6 billion people on Earth, each one with their own desires, their own thoughts, their own logic. And that's why the shady art
doesn't come in accordance to people's dreams and desires and their logic. But not only that, because amongst the people that are those who their whims and desires are evil, corruption, oppression, they want to do harm, it's just their nature. That's the way they are. They like to do that they like to oppress people. So if the Sharia or the revelation was to be in accordance to the people's desires, especially amongst many people, the elite, the nobility, they want to keep all of the power for themselves. Delfin oppress those below them, if it was in accordance to them, then there would have been much corruption upon the earth. In fact, we have given them that which would
bring them on namely the squat and which motivates them to do all that is good and
in which there is pride and honor, if they adhere to it. And through it, they become they could become leaders of humankind, but they turn away from that which could which would bring them on because they are doomed and are not guided. They have forgotten Allah, so he has forgotten them. And they forgot Allah so He caused them to forget themselves. The Quran and the one who brought it are the greatest blessing that Allah bestowed upon them. But their only response was to reject it and turn away. Can there be any deprivation worse than this? Can there be anything beyond? That was the most last

or is it that you ask them for some recompense, but the recompense of your Lord is better. And he's the best of providers. That is,
are they being prevented from following you? Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, by your asking them for payment, if they're if they respond, recompense which they if they find too burdensome, and they find it burdensome to follow you because of what you would take from them of Recompense and payment. That is not the case. But the recompense of the Lord is better. And he is the he is the best of providers. This is like what the, what the prophets said to their nations, oh, my people know where we compared to I ask of you for this. And my reward is with Allah alone. In other words, they were not calling people to Allah in hopes of what they could get of their wealth. Rather, it
was our sincerity towards them, and a desire to guide them to that which was in their best, best interest. In fact, the messengers were more sincere to people within their own selves. May Allah grant them the best of rewards on behalf of their nations, and enable us to follow their example, in all of our look at how Allah azza wa jal brings all of the different reasons they could have for rejecting the Prophet Salah and he dismisses them. Is it because he didn't he bought something that their forefathers did or no, is it because he's crazy? Is it because he was someone they weren't aware of? They didn't know his background? Or is it because he's asking them for money and they
can't afford to pay him? One of those are not correct when it comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam,
but in actuality, in Surah, stealthing surely you own hammer to Loralee or Salam are calling them to st path while
letting me know Neville karate O'Neill's toil. Anakee boo. Ba Indeed, those who do not believe in the hereafter are deviating from that path. In these verses, Allah mentions every means that may lead to faith. And he mentioned obstacles to faith. He highlights how how corrupt the obstacles are, one after another. Among the obstacles he mentioned, the fact that their hearts are utterly heedless of this quarter of this the Quran, they did not point to the words of Allah.
They followed in the footsteps of their forefathers and they said that there was a madness in their messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we have discussed, as we have, as we have discussed above, among the things that would lead them to faith Allah mentioned, reflecting upon the Quran, accepting the blessings of Allah with appreciation, acknowledging the sublime attributes, sincerity and honest honesty of the messenger Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and that he was not asking for any reward. Rather, his efforts were for their benefit, and in their interest, and that what he called them to is a straight path which is easy to follow because it's straight and leads to go in the
shortest way. And he called them to a religion of ease that is based on pure monotheism was always meant is you Oh, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam are calling them to the straight path, which requires the one who seeks the truth to follow you. Because what you are calling them to is something that is in harmony with rational thinking and common sense. And through that path, they may attain all their interests, what other paths will they follow, if they do not follow you, they will not have any other alternative that could suffice them so that they would not need to follow you because they are deviating from that path, drifting away from the path that leads to Allah and
His paradise. What they are following is nothing but misguidance and ignorance. The same applies to everyone who goes against the truth, he will inevitably deviate in all his affairs. Allah subhanho wa Taala says elsewhere, but if they do not respond to you, then know that they only follow their own desires and who is more straight than the one who follows his own desires without any guidance from Allah. Well,

This highlights the extent of their foolishness and stubbornness, if harm before them, they call upon Allah asking him to grant them relief, so that they may believe or, or he may test them so that they may come back to him. Then if he grants them relief, they persist in their transgression wandering blindly in their misguidance that is, they want to blend in their disbelief. So
Verily Allah mentioned their state when they bought ships. They call upon Him professing sincere devotion to Him alone, and they forget those whom they ascribed as partners to him, but when he delivered them, they spread mischief throughout the land.
By ascribing partners to Allah and other otherwise, the people amongst the Koresh the Arabs were disbelievers were polytheists. This was the state when they were safe and on land, and there was relative comfort. They would worship their idols and call upon other than Allah azza wa jal, but then in times of difficulty in times of calamity in times of severe hardship, like for example, when they're on the ocean on the sea, and their ship is about to capsizes in a storm, who do they call upon Allah alone? They don't call upon any of the idols they don't ask anyone else they go to Allah azza wa jal directly. This is the way that they would be contradictory in terms of their belief of
Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah azza wa jal now will give an example of this from the time of the prophet or Salam, we have already seized them with punishment. The commentator said that what is meant here is the hunger and feminine and and famine, and that they experienced for seven years, Allah tested them thereby so that they might turn back to him in humble submission, but it was to no avail. Not one of them benefited from it. But Lars was it says that we already sees them with a punishment, the author says are hemella to Allah, and that was hunger and famine. Because established in the in the books of Hadith. And authentic hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam made dua against Quraysh. And he said, Oh Allah sent upon them the years, like the years of use of RT Sinha, in the dream of Yusuf Ali salaam, he sees a dream, the seven years will be hunger, drought, famine, that's what he calls the king. And so the Prophet Muhammad said, Oh Allah send upon these people to arrange what you sent upon the people of use of drought and famine, for a number of years. So that's what happened. So when it happened, as is mentioned in the narration of a necessity, Abu Sufyan who at that time was a non Muslim, one of the leaders of Quraysh he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam You see, when the drought comes first, they think, Oh, it's
just a natural phenomenon. Give it a few months or go give it a year it will go give it two years it will go now it's continuing small relief. And they know that the Prophet Saddam is making this to our against them. Abu Sufyan has to come to the Prophet and Salim and he says, oh, Mohammed, do you see what's happening? Destruction, no water, our animals, our people, everything is going to perish and be destroyed. So ask Allah to send unreal, remove this difficulty from us. This is the man his people don't believe in Allah. Don't believe in the Prophet Salam don't accept the Quran, don't accept he's a messenger of Allah. But now in this time of difficulty, what are they going to do?
They're going to come to the one person that you know, will be able to help them and that is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through his dua, just as they do on the ocean. Allah azza wa jal is saying, look at the contradictory way of belief, then enemy to the Prophet seldom. But now he has to come and say this help us. He said, these are your family, people. These are your kin, you kept the Quraysh we're family, we're blood related. They're going to die if you don't ask Allah for ring. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked Allah to remove this punishment from them. But they did not humble themselves before their Lord. That is, they did not submit to him, nor did they
beseech Him or acknowledge their need him rather they went through that then they recovered,
as if nothing had happened to them, and they continued in their misguidance and disbelief. So they didn't turn to Allah rather than believing becoming Muslims asking Allah for his help. They went to the Prophet Solomon said, you make dua to your Lord, your Lord did this, you make dua to your Lord, that He removes this from us. And then once it's removed, do they think do they have lessons? Do they stop just like federal, federal sees all of those signs of Lusardi cinammon, even after Musa Islamic dua that Allah removes them? What does he do? He becomes even more oppressive. What did the police do to the Muslims, they become even more oppressive.
But ahead of them is a punishment that cannot be worded off as Allah says, until when we open upon them again of severe punishment, such as they're being killed on the border,
they will be plunged into utter despair, that is, they will give up hope of all good and will find themselves surrounded by all ills, and all causes that lead to that. So let them pay heed before there before them the punishment the severe punishment of Allah that cannot be wandered off, unlike what the punishment, punishments that may cease, such as those with which Allah disciplines his slaves. Allah subhanho wa Taala says elsewhere,
corruption and disorder have appeared on land and sea because of what people's hands have earned. Thus, Allah causes them to taste the consequences of some of what they'd have done so that they may turn in repentance. Well, while lady Sherlock Holmes Santa

Flf dark yellow is He Who gives life and causes death. And he controls the alternation of night and day, will you not understand, he Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us of the blessings that He has bestowed upon his slaves, which would prompt them to give thanks to Him and fulfill their duty towards him is he who has given you hearing so that you may understand what you hear and benefit with regard to religious, religious and worldly affairs site so that you may understand what you see and benefit from it when you go about your business and intellect. That is reason by means of which you understand things and by means of which you are distinguished from the animals. If you did not
have the hearing, sight, and intellect, and you are deaf, blind and dumb, what would be what would you what would your condition be? What would you miss out? On? What would you miss out on essentials and luxuries? Will you not then give thanks to the one who has bestowed these blessings upon you, and affirm his oneness and obey Him? Little is it that you give thanks, even though the blessings come to you continuously, and is he may he be exalted, exalted, Who has created you on the earth, and He has caused you to spread throughout the earth in all direction, and has given you the power to bring forth benefits from the earth? He has, he has made it sufficient for your livelihood and
dwelling, and unto Him you will be gathered after your death. And he will requite you for what you did on earth, of good and evil and the earth, on which you dwell will speak of what happened. And is he alone, may he be exalted, who gives life and causes death, that is the one who has control over life and death. Is, is Allah alone. And he controls the alternation of night and day. So if he would, he could make the day, the day everlasting, then what God other than Allah could bring the night, so that you could rest there and and if he would, he can make the night everlasting, than what God other than Allah could bring you like, Will you not then see, by His mercy He has made for
you night and day, so that you may rest there in and seek His bounty, so that you may give thanks. Hence, Allah says here, Will you not then understand and realize that the fact that he alone bestowed upon you all these blessings, hearings, hearings, hearing sight and inter intellect, he alone cause you to spread out on earth, He alone gives life and causes death, and he alone controls night and day dictates that you should devote your worship to Him alone, with no partner or associate and you should refrain from worshipping those that cannot bring benefit order form, and have no control over anything at all. In fact, they are incapable in all ways. So if you had any
common sense, you would not do that.
But it will call you miss lemon call Wellmune. On the contrary, they say the like of what the earlier people said, Call to either meet now we're going to rob and worry about them. And in
two, they said what, when we have died and turn into dust and bones will really be raised up Nakada worried Anna?
Wiley, we and our forefathers have been promised this before is nothing but false, but tells of the ancients that is rather than disbelievers, or following the same path as their predecessors who just believed in the resurrection and thought I highly unlikely and said what, when we have died and have turned into dust and both will we really be raised up there as this is something that cannot be imagined and is incomprehensible, according to their claim. So Allah azza wa jal says they said exactly what the people who came before them said. People have no people of earth people have Thamud all throughout the nations and the prophets that will send to them it is the same thing. They said
Elijah de Saint makanan overtone what the earlier people said, the same justifications, the same reasons the same everything. And so they rejected the prophets of Allah and He will send them to Qureshi has been referred to her, using the same reasons that the previous nations rejected their prophets and messengers and from them is how can we be resurrected? How can Allah after we have died, replaced into our graves? Our bones are turned to dust, disintegrate? How then Allah but Allah azza wa jal bring this to life. And that is what after these two three verses Allah azza wa jal will speak about his power and speak about his creation and speak about his his control of the universe.
subhanaw taala. We and our forefathers have been promised this before. That is we are still being promised that the resurrection will happen. We and our forefathers, we and our fathers before us, but we have not seen it
and it has not happened yet is nothing but tells of the ancient there is, it is nothing more than their stories and nightly entertainment that they used to talk about to pass the time, otherwise it has no reality. Thus they disbelieved when Allah had shown them science greater than the resurrection. For example, indeed, the creation of the heavens and the earth is a greater matter than the creation or recreation of humankind, producing arguments against us and forgetting his own creation. He says, Who can give life to bones, they have crumbled to dust, you see the Earth dry and barren, but when we send down rain upon it, it stirs and swells and brings forth beautiful plants of
every kind. And those were lost hands that are now mentioned those those signs of the universe that equated in the sign of the creation of humans. People say how it allows you to resurrect us. We are so small when it comes to the universe that Allah azza wa jal has created. If Allah can create and control all of the universe, why can't we create one small creation within it?

they will say in Allah's hand, say then how can you be so diluted, that is say to these people who disbelieve in the resurrection and regard others as equal to Allah, using as evidence against them, that which they themselves affirm and acknowledge of the oneness of Allah's Lordship, and that Allah alone is the is the Lord, to prove what they did not they denied of the oneness of Allah's divinity, and that he alone is deserving of worship. Thus he uses as evidence that which they affirm and accept about the creation of these mighty created entities, in order to prove that which they did not have his ability to raise the dead, which is easier than the creation of these mighty entities,
To whom does the Earth and all that is on it belong? That is who is the creator of the earth, and everything on it, of animals, plants, inanimate objects, seas, rivers and mountains? Who is the sovereign thereof? Who is in control of it? If you ask them about that, they will inevitably say that it belongs to Allah. So if they affirm that and say to them, Will you not then pay heed? That is, Will you not then will you not think of that, we do not think of that which Allah reminded you, which is known to you and is firmly based on your common sense, but may be absent from your mind when you are here he lives on occasion. In fact, if you think and ponder, you will realize that the
sovereign of all that is the only one who deserves to be worshipped and attributing divinity to one who is controlled by Allah is one of the most obvious falsehoods. First therefore challenge that Allah azza wa jal gives to these people who deny resurrection is Who created the heavens and earth, who does everything belong to surely if it is Allah subhanaw taala because they respond because the courage believed that the creator of the universe was Allah alone. They never used to say that the idols created the universe, they never gave the idols that type of power and ability. They said, No, Allah is the One who created so if Allah azza wa jal is the one who created Why then does he not
have the power to resurrect you, He created you, why Connie resurrect you. In fact, if you think and ponder, you will realize that the sovereign of all that is the only one who deserves to be worshipped and attributing divinity to one who is controlled by Allah is one of the most obvious of falsehood. Then he moves on to something that is greater than that, as he says, so who is the Lord of the Seven Heavens, and all that they contain of stars and planets, and the Lord of the Mighty Throne, which is the highest fastest and greatest of all creative things? Who is it that created it controls it and manage it in various ways, they will say, they belong to Allah, that is, they will
affirm that Allah is the Lord of all all that say to them, when they affirm that we will not then fear Him, and avoid worshipping, incapable created things and fear the almighty Lord who is perfect in my ingrained thought authority. Here we see gentle words, as Allah says, We do not then pay heed, and we not then
To him, this is exploitation by using gentle words in order to appeal the heart, as is quite clear. So this is the second challenge. The first one is who created the earth and everything within it, Who does it belong to? They said Allah, the second one who created the heavens, and everything within it, and owns the Mighty Throne, everything that you see, the sun, the moon, the stars, everything who owns it. And they also said to Allah Azza, wa jal, he belongs, then he moves on to their affirmation of that which is more general than all of the above, he says, say in whose hand is dominion over all things, that is a sovereignty of all things in both the upper and lower rooms, all
that we can see, and all that we cannot see. And he protects his slaves from evil, warding off hardship from them, and guarding them against that which would harm them, while against him, there is no protection, that is no one can, no one can protect him, no one can protect anyone against Allah award of home that Allah wills. Indeed, no one can intercede with him except by His leaf, they will say in Allah's hand, that is, they will affirm that Allah is the sovereign of all things that protect the protector against whom there is no protection, say to them, when they affirm that, so as to establish binding proof against them, then how can you be so deluded, that is, have you lost your
mind as you worship that which, you know, has no sovereignty over you, and has no share of dominion and is incapable in all aspects, and you failed to vote to devote your worship solely to the Almighty, omnipotent sovereign, who controls all things, the minds that led you to this? The minds that led you to this conclusion can only be deluded, and they have undoubtedly been deceived by the shaytaan. Who made who made that fair seeming to them by turning the facts upside down. Thus, demos became diluted. So that's the third challenge, who's the one that controls and in his hands is dominion of everything, meaning, he is the one that gives life he's the one who gives death. He's
the one who benefits he's the one who warms, he's the one who decrease everything. And he used to say Allah. So if Allah azza wa jal controls everything in the heavens and on the earth, and He controls all of dominion. Why you worshipping these idols besides Allah? Surely you should worship Allah azza wa jal? No, no, that is what Allah subhanaw taala that does seem to them. Bella Tina, be healthy, we're in a womb laka the moon. In fact, we have bought them the truth. They are indeed liars, met Taha the law hoomin What
am I who homing in either another habit called Lulu him in a hoarder koala Barbone, ALLAH SubhanA wa,
LC fortune, Allah has never been caught in the sun. Nor is there any God besides Him. In that case, if God would have taken full control of what he had created, and each would have rushed to gain supremacy over the others, Glory be to Allah and exalted be He for up of what they ascribe to him. I only mean why he was sure that if
I'm equal, I don't know of the unseen and the seen exalted be far above the corners they ascribe to him. Here Allah says, rather we have brought the truth to the to these denials of truth, truth that is based on truthful news and fairness and commands and prohibitions. So what is the matter with them, that they do not acknowledge it? When it is, when it is most deserving of being followed? They have no other alternate alternative so that they have no other alternative to that except lies and wrongdoing. Hence, Allah says, but they are indeed liars. Allah has never been called an assassin, nor is there any God is there any God besides Him, we know that this is a lie on the basis of what
Allah and His messengers have told us, and on the basis of sound reasoning. Therefore, Allah subhanho wa Taala pointed out on the basis of rational evidence that it is impossible for there to be two gods, as he says, in that case, if there were other gods besides Him, each God would have taken full control of what he had created, there is each of the two gods would have taken control of his own creation, independently of the other, and he would have tried to resist and stand up to the other gods, and each would have rushed to gain supremacy over over the others, then the one who gained the upper hand would have become the supreme god. Otherwise, if they continue to resist one
another, without any gaining the upper hand, then the universe could not have come into into existence. And it cannot be imagined that it would have existed with such precise, precise order that astounds the mind, and this is similar to what Allah azza wa jal mentioned previously, and it is called what we call this is that manner in Arabic, which means the evidence of impossibility. It's impossible for there to be more than one God because Allah azza wa jal says that if they did, then each one would do want to do their own thing in their part of the creation. Each one would have to have one their own laws. And not only that, but then each one would want to be the supreme court
over the other and that would cause to them cause them to fight amongst themselves and therefore there to be much corruption upon the earth. But when you see the beauty of the order of the universe, this
sun, the moon, the stars, the rain, the way that everything is in the decree of Allah azza wa jal, it shows you that there is only one God worthy of worship. Think for example of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars, if you realize that since they were created, they are moving according to one system and one order. And all of that is subjugated to the power of Allah and controlled
and controlled and directed on the basis of wisdom to serve our peoples interests, that is not limited to the interests of some and not others, you will never find any problems or contradictions or resistance in the least of their movements. So could it be, could it be imagined that all of that is a work of two gods or two Lords, robot Allah and exalted be He far above what they ascribe to him? The way the way is, the way is run in place and indicates that is controller is one God, perfect in his names and attributes. All creative things are in need of his care, as their Lord and His divine help.
As they cannot exist or continue to exist without his care as their as the Lord in their wellbeing cannot be sound, and cannot be maintained, except by worshiping and obeying Him alone. Allah points out the greatness of His attributes by referring to one of them, namely his all encompassing, encompassing knowledge, as he says, Know of the unseen, that is, that which is hidden from our eyes, and our knowledge of what must exist, what cannot exist and what may exist in the scene, which is what we can see of that, of the unseen and the seen exalted be He above the partners they have the partners, they, namely those who have not no knowledge except what Allah has told them, ascribe to

But they did not pay any attention to it, and did not submit to it. Therefore the punishment became inevitable and they were one of it's coming. And Allah instructed His Messenger salAllahu alayhi salam to say, Oh, my Lord, if you show me that which they are warned of that is, whenever you show me their punishment, and you cause me to be present at that time, my lord, then do not include me among the people who are given to wrongdoing, guys, protect me from these sins that they have been committing to incur
your punishment and protect me from the punishment that befalls them. Because when the general punishment comes, it includes both the sinner and and others. Allah says regarding the closest of the of their punishment, we are surely able to show you that of which we have won them, but if we delay it, that is for some reason, otherwise, we have the power to inflict it upon them at any time.
It is our ability here, San Jose national law movie Milesi foon Repel evil with that which is better, we know best what they allege. Walk or rob BIANG do they come in hamazon Shailene and say, My Lord, I seek refuge with you from the goading of the devils, where our own will be held up be any Barun and I seek refuge with You, my Lord, lest they come near me. This is part of the good manners and attitude that hola enjoined upon His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as he said, Repel evil with that which is better. That is when your enemies mistreat you in word or deed, do not respond with bad treatment, even though it's permissible to react in in an in an offender within
within equal offense. Rather word of ministry member being kind to them for that is generosity on your part to the wrongdoer know Allah azza wa jal is now telling the prophets of Allah where it was salam, how do you deal with these people, they rejected you, they curse you, the ridicule you they mock you how do you respond? Allah azza wa jal is saying number one make dua to Allah subhanaw taala as Allah azza wa jal for his help, number two,
repel what they do have evil with good in terms of your character in terms of your dealing in terms of your worship, with Allah subhanaw taala. So the more evil they do, the more you worship Allah azza wa jal increasing Euro Korean cuisine yo sujood increasing your liquor increase in your recitation of the Quran, increasing your charity and deal with them in good. So when they come to you with the evil you repel it with good character with good dealings, and that is right as we know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most amazing of people. Despite all of the harm that his enemies did to him. He would respond in the best of ways, especially when later on they come and
they accept Islam, and many of them would eventually come to accept Islam because they knew that this man despite all of the
evil that they've done. This person's going to forgive us in Parliament's Can you imagine? 1015 20 years you fight someone trying to kill them. If it was any other leader and you know that leader has a reputation, that even if you go on Sunday is going to kill you anyway, what are you going to do? She said, you might as well fight and carry on. It's gonna kill us anyway. But if you know that that person is a man of generosity, of forgiveness of pardon, if you come and you apologize, you make Toba, you say, look, I was wrong, he will forgive you, he will pardon you more, so he will honor you. Not only forgive you, he will honor you and give you more. That is what the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam was known for. And that is right. All of those people from the leaders have Quraysh or thought if all of those Arab tribes and different clans, they knew that this was a man, that despite all of the harm that we've done, if we go to him sincerely, he will pardon us, forgive us an unrest. And that is why many of them eventually accept Islam. So this is the instruction of Allah azza wa jal, that when you want to guide people, you can't hold it personally, even when they reject you, because if you hold it personally, that is about me and you now as individuals, it's not about the truth or Allah's religion or guidance. It's about me and you, the prophets of salaam said, was
told don't don't do this personally. And that is why I shot the Allahu arnesson The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never sought revenge for himself. Unless one of Allah's laws was broken, he would seek revenge for Allah's laws, but himself someone harmed him personally said something about never sought revenge for himself. And that is the character of the prophets, the good guys achieved thereby that his mistreatment towards you will be reduced immediately and in the future, and is more effective in bringing the wrongdoer back to his senses and is more likely to make him regret and cause him to repent from what he has done. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam is described as being a father, to his nation. You now as a father, or as a mother, your child makes a mistake once, twice, three times 10 times, 100 times what do you do have to be patient have to be gentle, even if you discipline them, you deal with them trying to learn and be better. And so they do the same mistake 10 times 100 times you have to wait take some years sometimes to learn. That is what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was like, because he's a father, to his followers. So he will treat them in that way. Patience, patience, patience, let them make mistakes, learn that then be better, and be patient with them. It will also cause the one who forgives to
attain the description of being a doer of good by means of which he will suppress his enemy, the shaytaan. Thus, he will be entitled to a reward, to reward from entire reward from his Lord, as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, But whoever forgives and reconciles his reward is with Allah, and repel with Repel evil with that which is good. Whereupon, he between whom, whom and you there was, ill feeling will become like a close friend, but none can attain that except those who are patient, and none can attain it except one who is blessed with a great share of good and righteousness,
we know best what they allege, that is what they say of words that imply disbelief and rejection of the truth or knowledge encompasses encompasses all of that, but we have been forbearing and have given them respect, and we have shown patience towards them, but they are committing long wrong against us and are denying us so you O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should bear with patients what they say and respond to them with kindness. This is what is expected of the of the pie slave in response to humans who mistreat them. As for devils who mistreat them, kindness is of no benefit, in this case, for the shaytaan only calls his party to the to be the inhabitants of the
blazing Fire. So what is expected of humans in response to him is to follow his instructions given by Allah and His Messenger satellite and send and say, My Lord, I seek refuge with you. That is I seek protection in your strength and power. And I acknowledge that I have no power or strength of my own, from the goading of the devils and I seek refuge with You, my Lord, lest they come near me, that is, I seek refuge with you from the from the evil that may befall me because of their attempts to harm me and that Golding and their and their touch, and I seek refuge with you from the evil that results from their coming near and from their whispers, that this is seeking refuge with Allah from
all evil and its origin, which includes seeking refuge from all the temptations of the shaitaan and from his touch and whispers. If Allah grant His slave refuge from this, from this evil and answers his prayer, he will be saved from all evil and will be enabled to do all good. That is also something which the prophet of Satan was then instructed with. So number one was dua number two was to Repel evil with good and number three is to seek Allah's protection to make history either to seek Allah's refuge and his protection from the harms of shaytaan and the harms of people. And that issue of seeking refuge and protection is something which we often neglect. We often make dua and
ask Allah for things, but you rarely ask Allah protection from harm and evil. And if you look in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are many Hadith or many trials that are essentially
to either making a seeking Allah's protection from harm from evil, from the harm of, of your, in your religion and the harm in your dunya and that is why one of the greatest books that gathered all of those generations together is the center of every moment necessary. And remember to say in his sermon, he has a whole chapter that he dedicated to, and it's the other two seeking refuge and protection and he gathered in them, many of these doors of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in which he would seek Allah's protection from different types of harm.

When he sees his fate and realize that I've heard nature of his deeds, he is filled with regret. So he asked to go back to his world not to enjoy his physical joys and indulge in his pleasure. Rather, he says so that I may do good deeds that I felt to do for I neglected my duty to Allah that is something which is common that Allah azza wa jal mentions about the disbelievers
whether it's at the time of their death or on your will piano one of their biggest wishes will be oh Allah give me another chance. Oh, Allah sent me back to the dunya Oh Allah give me more time Oh Allah. Now, you will see what I will do. Allah azza wa jal to all of them will respond that no, you had your time you had the opportunity, you had your chance. And that is why the Sunnah tells us and the shipyard generally tells us that the time that we have in this world is very precious, these few years that you have limited decades, whatever they are very precious, because that is the only time that you have the only chance that you are given, there are no second chances, there are no returns
that are no, it is this life and all that is within it is all the opportunity that you have. No, there is no going back and no respite for Allah has decreed that they will not go back. It that is his statement that he wishes to go back to this world is but a word he says that is is merely words that will not benefit the one who says them or bring him anything but regard about regret and sorrow. Moreover, he is not sincere in that, for even if he were to he was sent back, he will surely go back to that which was forbidden to him. And this is an important point to understand this in principle is very important. But Allah azza wa jal is saying that even if those people were to come
back to the dunya, they will still wouldn't believe in Allah, even after seeing everything that they saw on piano, because the first time they were negligent of Allah signs, and then they would come back into the dunya. And it's temptations and its pleasures and so on, will distract them again and shaytan would overpower them, and they would continue upon their path of disbelief. And so Allah Allah did the single Allah knows their reality. And Allah subhanaw taala only seals guidance upon those people that he knows are deserving to go into the fire that they won't accept guidance as for those people who are sincere, Allah guides them, and they come to Islam in one way or another, and
behind them as a barrier, until the day they are resurrected, is a barrier between two things between this world and the hereafter during that period between death and the resurrection. Those who obeyed Allah will enjoy bliss and those who disobeyed Allah disobeyed Him will be punished. So make preparation for that and be ready for it the bizarre this is what we call the life of the grave Balzac literally means a barrier barrier between this dunya and akhira. When a person dies, they go into the life of the grave that is called the life of the Barossa. And the Buddhism as we know is established and authentic sunnah. Also in that life of the grave, there is reward and punishment
depending upon the person's level of Eman and their good deeds. People in their graves are being rewarded and have the blessings of the grave. And people in their graves are being punished for the evil deeds as well.

the mean they will say we remain there for a day or part of the day. But as those who keep counting Paula Elizabeth tune in kalila Lowe and
Todd lamb who Allah will say you only remain there for a short while if you had been known. Your Allah tells us of the horrors of the Day of Resurrection, and what will happen on that day of disturbing and alarming events. When the trumpet is blown. For the for the resurrection, or people will be gathered for an appointed day, and they will befall them such terror that it will cause them to forget the ties of kinship, which are the strongest ties between people. So it's more likely that other ties will be utterly forgotten. No one will ask anyone else about his situation because each one will be preoccupied only with his own self, for He will not know whether he will be granted
salvation, after which there will be no misery or he will or he will be doomed, after which there will be no happiness. Allah Subhana Allah tells us that on that day, a man will flee from his book, his brother, his own brother, and from his mother and his father, and from his wife and his children. Every one of them on that day will have too many concerns of his own to care about anyone else. But Allah azza wa jal tells us numerous verses in the Quran that are normal to Yama, everyone will be only only preoccupied with themselves and that every single tie, every single relationship that people had in the dunya will not benefit them. So whether it's blood or money, or marriage, or
whatever it may be those times will not benefit on the day of judgment. And some of the scholars said the exception to that is the ties of piety and Eman because those will remain on your monitor Yama as Allah azza wa jal says, In the Quran, in the tepee, and except for the people of piety, and as mentioned also, in some of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Allah azza wa jal will allow those types to remain, because we know that the believers benefit the believers. The believers help the believers the believers will benefit them and the children who are believers will benefit their parents. And likewise the believers brothers one to another will benefit one
another in terms of intercession and so on. But other than that,
No other, no other relationship won't benefit a person on your multicam. On the Day of Resurrection, there will be some stages during which the hardship will become very intense and will have a great impact such as when the balance is set up to differentiate between peoples. That balance meaning the scales of justice, the skills when Allah azza wa jal weaves things to differentiate between people's deeds and their deeds will be examined on the basis of justice, to measure what is in a person's favor, and what is against him, even the smartest particles of good deeds of good and evil show up in that reckoning, then those who could those whose good deeds weigh heavily in the balance
so that their good deeds outweigh their baddies will be the successful ones, for they will be saved from the fire and will deserve Paradise, and they will be praised and commended, and those whose good deeds weigh lightly invalid in the balance so that their bad deeds outweigh their good deeds, and they are over and they are overwhelmed by their sins are the ones who will be who lose their souls who will lose their own souls. In comparison to this loss, any other loss is easy to bear.
But this loss will be difficult to bear for nothing can help them to withstand and recover from this loss for his eternal loss and everlasting doom. They will lose their own souls that could have attained eternal happiness. But they missed out on this everlasting bliss in nearness to the Most Generous Lord, in how they will abide forever and will never emerge from it. This warning is a just as we have mentioned above, to those whose bad deeds overwhelm their good deeds, this can only be applicable to the disbeliever. Based on that, he will not be taken to add to task in the sense of weighing between his goodies and baddies rather than disbelievers have no good deeds, to their
credit, rather their deeds will be counted and listed, then there will be shown to them and they will be made to admit them and will be disgraced thereby. As for the one who's basically a believer, but has done so many bad deeds, that they will outweigh his good deeds, even if he entered Hell, he will not abide there and forever as is indicated by the texts of the Quran and Sunnah. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala I mentioned the bad fate of the disbelievers. The fire will burn their faces and overwhelm them overwhelm them on all sides until it touches all parts of their bodies and the flames will burn their faces and they will grin there in that is they will grimace and their lips will
shrink from the intensity and gravity of the situation with which they are faced. That is a better translation not that they will grin in the fire but that they will grimace in the fire because green means that someone is happy when you smile it means you happy the people of the fire will not be happy they will grimace and Allah Azza just says that the lips will shrivel up. That's because when someone loves you see the teeth, Allah azza wa jal noumenal Yama will make the fire devour the lips of the people of the fire, so that you see the teeth and normally when you see the teeth of someone, it means that they're smiling or they're laughing. But those people you will see that is not because
they're laughing, but because of the terror that they will see. And the punishment that they will have that the skin of their faces will melt off, the lips will melt off. So they you see the teeth. And Allah azza wa jal says that it is a type of grimace, grimace out of pain, out of the punishment of Allah azza wa jal May Allah say he was from that.
We said to them by way of rebuke and blame, were not my revelation recited to you and were you not called to believe in them? And were they not presented to you so that you might reflect? But you used to reject them wrongfully and stubbornly even though they were clear revelation that pointed out truth and falsehood and explained who was in the right and who was in the wrong. At that point, they will admit their wrongdoing, at the time when admitting it will be of no benefit from the day they will admit everything, they will confess everything, but on that day, will it benefit them to confess to admit to repent? No, they will say Our Lord, our mystery or misfortune overwhelmed us,
that is a move forward misfortune that resulted from wrongdoing, turning away from the truth and turning to that which is harmful forsaking that which is beneficial overwhelmed us. And we were people who went who went astray in their deeds, even though they knew that they were doing wrong. In other words, we acted in this world let one who is lost, misguided and foolish. This is like another verse which tells us that they will say, If only we had listened or understood, we will not be among the inhabitants of the raging fire. Our Lord deliver us from this, then if we return to evil, we will indeed be wrongdoers, but they will be lying when they when they make this promise for they are
as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and even if they were sent back, they will surely go back to that which was forbidden to them. Allah subhanho wa Taala has left no has left them no argument and has left no excuse for them. He causes them to live in this world long enough to be reminded and understand the reminder and for the evildoer to be deterred. So Allah will say in response to their request, be humiliated there and do not speak to me these words we asked. We asked him to keep us safe and sound are the
are the worst rebuke that the evildoers may hear in terms of shame, sin sensor, a humiliation, a loss for a will cause them to despair of all of our good and will bring tidings of our ills. These words and wrath from the Most Merciful, from the Most Merciful Lord will be harder for them to bear and more effective in causing them pain and soreness of hell. And that is because it will cut off all hope for them. They will ask Allah azza wa jal to be allowed to return to the dunya Allah will say Sophia, remain the remnant don't ever speak to me again. Which means what then you can't ask Allah, you complete before Allah, you can request from Allah you commit to our to Allah every single
means of hope is correct for them. And that is why the author says that these words, for them will be the greatest of humiliation and loss it means that there is no hope for you now, you can't even address Allah azza wa jal request anything from him Subhana wa Tada. And then Allah mentioned that which brought the punishment upon them, and deprive them of mercy. Among my slaves, there were some who said, Oh, Lord, we believe so forgive us and have mercy upon us. You are the Most Merciful of those who show mercy. So they combined faith with command faith, which leads to righteous deeds, calling upon the Lord to forgive them, and bestow mercy upon them, seeking to draw close to Him, by
calling upon him by calling upon him, as the Lord, expressing gratitude to him for blessing them with faith and speaking of the vastness of his message of His mercy and kindness. This is indicative of their submission, humility, humility and humbleness before their Lord, and their fear of his punishment and their hope for His mercy. These are the leaders of humankind, and the best of them, but you obeys disbelievers who are lacking unreasonable winds and wisdom, treated them with ridicule, and mock them, and look down on them to such an extent that you were distracted by that, by that foolish behavior. So much, so much that so much so that ridicule of them made you forget all
remembrance of me. And you used to laugh at them. This is what made them forget the reminder. They were distracted by the ridicule of them. They're forgetting of the reminder encourage them to ridicule them. So that the one excessive exacerbated the other can be can there be anything worse than this other than this audacity that is that when you make fun of someone and ridicule them, you don't take them seriously, even when what they say shouldn't be taken seriously, because you're making fun of them. When you make fun of someone you don't consider them to be worthy of any attention. So you don't listen to them. You don't pay them any heat. So even when they come to with
you to you with something which is important, you will ignore it. And that is what they did with the Muslims. The Qureshi is to make fun of them. These people are poor, the ex slaves, what do they know they will make fun of them. Even when they would stand up and recite the verses of the Quran and guide them or try to advise them, they would dismiss it.
I have, I have rewarded them for I have rewarded them this day for their patients and steadfastness in obeying Me and in putting up with your annoyances until they came to me very is they who have triumphed by attaining eternal bliss, and salvation from hell. This is like the verse in which Allah says, but on the day, on that day, those who believed will laugh at the disbelievers. Allah will say to the disbelievers, by way of blame for the for, for they were foolish, because within this short time, they committed every evil that led them that led to them incurring His wrath and punishment. And they did not do what the what the believers did of good deeds that led them that led them
attaining eternal happiness and and the pleasure of their Lord, how many years did you remain on earth, they will say remain there for a day a part of the day. They're saying this is based on the fact that they will regard this day on Earth as have been very short. This is what it implies, but their words will not tell the exact length of their stay, or specify, hence, they will say, but as those who keep counting, in their case, they will be very distracted with something else. Namely the tremendous punishment from knowing the exact number of years to Allah will say to them, you only remain there for a short while, whether you know the number or not, if you had but know that is the
reality of the time upon this earth that even if you were to live for 100 years, Slack the blink of an eye, everyone now all of us can look back and say where did the time go? Where did those years go? I was only like yesterday, remember that I was in school yesterday that I felt like I was 10 or 20 or 30 or 40. You as someone who's now in the 80s or 90s. They will say to you I don't know where my life went. But like the blink of an eye. Like yesterday, I remember being a child and today I'm an elderly person. That's the nature of the dunya. And so those people on Yom Kippur Yama and Allah azza wa jal says to them, how long did you have upon the earth? They'll say you only found like a
day. And that shows you the preciousness of time and its value.

Hola Hola. Hola Manny cool how call
in Illa? Horrible Now Michelle Carrie. So exalted be Allah, the true sovereign, there is no God worthy of worship except Him, Lord of the Magnificent Throne. Did you think oh people that we created without purpose that is in vain, so that you may eat, drink, have fun and enjoy the pleasures of this world. And we would leave you alone without any commands or prohibitions, words or punishment. Hence, he says, and that you would not be brought back to us, and this never crossed your mind. So it was all to be Allah, the true sovereign, there is no God worthy of worship except Him, Lord of the Magnificent Throne, for he is truly the sovereign of all creation. And he is truly
he is truthful in his in his promise and warning, and he is the one who is worthy of worship. Because of the perfect attributes he possess. Whoopi possesses Lord of the Magnificent Throne, so it is more appropriate that he should be the Lord of everything beneath it, and that he will not create you in vain.

on whoever calls upon any other God besides Allah, for which he has no proof, his reckoning will only be with his Lord, rarely the disbelievers will never pass her walk or rob Bill Pharaoh or Rohan mwah
rah rah rah rah rah rah Haiming. So say, My Lord, forgive and have mercy for you, or the Best of those who show mercy. That is whoever calls upon other than other other gods besides Allah without having any proof or evidence to support what he believes, for everyone who calls upon anything other than Allah has no proof for that, in fact, the evidence all points to the falseness of his way. But he turns away from that proof wrongfully and stubbornly will will come his will come to his Lord, and He will require him for his deeds, and he will not attain anything of success, because he is a disbeliever and very, the disbelievers will never prosper because their disbelief in disbelief is an
obstacle to success. So say, calling upon your Lord with this sincere devotion to Him alone, my Lord, forgive my Lord, forgive us, forgive us so that we may be safe from harm, and have mercy on us so that by Your mercy we may attain all that is good, for You are the Best of those who show mercy whoever, whoever shows mercy to people, Allah is better than then than him, for he is more merciful towards a slave than a mother towards her child, child. And he is more merciful towards him, then he is to say to himself, this the end of the commentary of Surah Al minuman. Our praise and thanks are for Allah, and May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam, his family and his companions abundantly until the day for the Day of Judgment, will now come to Surah to know which is the 24th chapter of the Quran and there is a Madani Surah revealed after the Hijrah, and it consists of 64 verses Bismillahi on wash man on washing, in the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. So, right when Allah
on, this is a Surah that we have sent down and ordained in it We have sent down to your proof, clear signs so that you may pay heed.
That is this is a source of great importance that we have sent down as a mercy from Us to our sleeves, and we have protected it from every devil and ordain that there is we have ordained it. We have ordained in it, what we ordained have limits testimony and so on. In it we have sent down clear science that is important rulings, commands, rebukes and great wisdom so that you may be pay heed, when we explain to you and teach you that which you did not know. Then Allah begins to explain the rulings refer to the surah is called surah. To note on the word nor means light and then it contains the verse of light. So Allah azza wa jal is telling the believers how to attain light light in terms
of Eman guidance, to do that which is pleasing to Allah azza wa jal. And if we look throughout the Surah, we will see now, many of the verses that are contained within the surah refer to modesty refer to be being modest in terms of your dealings with others with the opposite gender with the way that you speak with the way that you behave. And it shows therefore, that one of the greatest ways of attaining the light of Allah azza wa jal, which is his blessing, his guidance, his Eman is by showing modesty in all of your affairs, to be shown in front of Allah azza wa jal so that you don't sin before him to be shown in front of the people that you don't encroach upon their rights and
their honor, and to be modest in terms of the way that you deal with people especially when it comes to
