So today's the 22nd day in the reading on the commentary of the book of the seer, or this portion of the Book of the CLT Cyril Karim Rahman vtct, Colombia Lebanon, more famously known as the receipt of a Saudi by the Imam and the alum Abdul Rahman Hebrew Nasser Saudi who died in the year 1376 of the Hijra Rahim Allah Tala Brahma T Lucia. And we are currently in the
on the 23rd. The Joseph at the beginning of Surah, Sud and Surah Asad is the 38th chapter of the Quran. It is a mucky Surah consisting of 88 verses, and from the names of this surah is known by Surah Saudis are known as a Surah or the name of the surah as being surah. Saudi is something which is widely noted in the books of Persia and Hadith and so on. But one of the names that is also known by and especially amongst the Quran, the scholars of Quranic recitation, scholars of Pirata and others is that is also known as the surah of the Woodbury sunnah. So you will find in some of the books they call it Surah to deal with the sort of the way that Islam because of the story that Allah

been they are nothing but troops of disbelievers who have gathered against the prophet but they will soon be defeated.
This is an explanation from Allah subhanaw taala described
In the Quran, and the attitude of those who rejected towards him, and towards the one who brought it. So sad is one of the earlier revelation. So it is a mature Revelation it is said that it is one of the earlier revelations and some of the scholars said that it is the first of the surah of the Quran from the McKee period that mentioned the Stories of the Prophets. So is the first major Surah of the Quran that mentioned the Stories of the Prophets on the set. It was rough that was the first one that mentioned the Stories of the Prophets. But either way, it is from the earlier revelation that Allah azza wa jal in his opening passage, is speaking about the Quraysh at the time of the
prophets of Allah, Allah, you will send him the early days of his of his prophethood. God by the Quran, full of reminders that is reminds people of everything that they need to know about the Names, Attributes and deeds of Allah, and about religious rulings. And what happened, what will happen with regard to the resurrection and an acquittal. This reminds them of the basic principles and minor issues of their religion, there is no need here to mention what is confirmed by this oath because in fact what is referred to in this oath and was sworn by any are one and the same, which is a Quran that is described in these sublime terms. If the Quran is like this, then people's need for
it surpasses all other needs. And what they must do is accept it and believe in it and try to find it and try to find in it that which will be a reminder to them the author of sin Rahim Allah Tala, the head, Allah azza wa jal takes an oath. What is the oath by the Quran one Qurani vicar, what is the oath taken for what is the job Wilkerson
daughter says is not mentioned and it doesn't need to be mentioned. Because there is one on the scene. Allah takes an oath by the Quran for the Quran. Allah swears by the Quran to show the Quran is sublime in its nature and it is all truthful in its in its in its speech and message. Allah guides whomever he was to do that, as for those who disbelieve in it, and in the one who sent it down to attitude towards it, arrogance and stubborn invites defiance, that is arrogance, refute arrogance, refusal to believe in it and pride. What is meant by stubborn Defiance is defiance in rejecting it, and trying to refute it and criticize the one who brought it. And Allah warned them by
reminding them of the destruction of previous nations who disbelieved in the, in the messengers, when Doom came upon them, they have cried out and sought help to avert their punishment from themselves. But by then, it was too late for deliverance. That is, that was not the time for them to be saved from what they had fallen into, and there was no escape from from that which had befallen them. So let these people beware, lest, if they persist in their arrogance and stubborn divide, defines the same fate before them as before those earlier nations, they deem it strange that one has come to them from among themselves, that is the disbelievers find, find strange, something that is
not strange at all, which is that Warren has come to them from among themselves, so that they would be able to learn from him, and so that they would be so that would, they would know His character very well, because he is one of them. So they would not be deterred from following Him by tribal feelings. This is something for which they should be grateful and they should follow him. But they react in the opposite manner to that. So that which was expected of them, and they expressed amazement by a wave of rejection, because of their disbelief and wrongdoing. They said, This man is a magician and a liar. What he did what he did wrong, according to their view, was that he made all
the gods into one. In other words, how could he forbid them to take the so called partners and rivals of gods and enjoin them to devote their worship to Allah and this, namely, the message he bought, is indeed more strange, that is, is extremely strange because it is false and corrupt, according to their view. And so they were amazed, the courageous leaders to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with a religion and a message that essentially does what takes all of the idols or of the gods and makes them into one, meaning ignore them. There is only one God jardel, Ali Hattah, illa Huwa. Has he made all of your gods just into one God, meaning is single worship anyone
else? One is enough. But they had hundreds, as we know, just in and around the cargo, how many 360 That's just in and around the car, but little more people have in their homes, in their businesses on their bodies on the whole of Arabia is full of idols. They think they're going to take all of those idols you think get rid of a wall and just have one in the huddle issue on our job. This is something which is extremely strange, but strange, extremely strange. In Arabic language when you want to show that something is extreme, or there is a mubadala in something that Arabs do it in three ways. Number one is they use the word Fareed, anything upon that wasn't upon that type of
word. farine. So ajeeb for example, ketene it means that someone's generous, something is strange, if they want to show that it's even more than that. They use for Al like here in the handle a shaman. Rajab. It's not just strange, it's really strange. Very strange. And if they want to go a further level up, they put a shut down it for IL. Allah Allah says in surah normally speaking about the people of know how these cinammon this scheming up
botany says well, mackerel, Macron, Kibera to show that a scheme he wasn't just small, it was major scheming. And so that is why the author he says that they found extremely strange because the weather or job shows that they didn't just think that it was something slightly weird or peculiar. They consider it to be something which was very strange to them, the leaders among them, that is those whose word was followed, left urging their people to adhere to what they believed in ascribing partners to Allah, saying, carry on as you are, and holdfast to your gods that is continuing that way and strive hard to remain steadfast, persisting, worshiping your gods and do not let anyone
deter you or prevent you from doing that. Lazarus it says The deed is among them left on Tala columella Minho, where did they leave from Who are these leaders? These are these have courage, Ebola have Abuja obey and others. Where did they leave from calling to remember the scholars of tafseer from the house of Abu Talib, because Abu Talib, they came to him and he said to the Abu Dhabi, your nephew is causing us problems. So either you deal with him or we will deal with him. Either you stop him or we will take matters into our own hand. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was called to the hustle battalion and his uncredible Padam said to him, Oh, my nephew, these
are your leaders. These are the nobility of our people. And they're complaining about your message. So leave it, leave what it is. And then the profit center is speaking and he's defending his religion. And he's saying that I will never stop and I will never stop calling to the door heed of Allah azza wa jal, even if they were to place the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left hand, I would never leave this religion or stop calling to it. And that is when they left because they heard his message on palapa minute woman whom they left and they said to each other, as the author will say, Hold fast to your gods and M. Chu was puro Be patient and steadfast upon your gods. And
that's why the Scholars have to say here the look here, how the people of Shipka sing to the people of shirk, these steadfast and patient upon your ship. So don't doesn't do don't the people of the heat have more right that they show patients of under heat, if the people of Schilke are saying to one another, be patient upon it, be patient upon your evil upon your shock upon your polytheism not the people of Dorita more right that they should advise one another and enjoying one another, to be patient upon the to heed of Allah azza wa jal there is surely some motive behind it. That is why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has brought up the prohibition on worshipping them is
deliberate and he has an ulterior motive and bad intentions. This was a specious argument that could only be accepted by foolish people, for when a person calls others to something, whether it's true or not. His view is not to be rejected by casting expert aspersions on his intentions, because his intentions and these will affect him only, rather, is to be refuted by presenting something to counter his argument to counter his arguments and invalidate them by means of proof and evidence. What they meant was Hamid sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is only calling you to that in order to become a leader among you, and to be respected and followed. We have never heard the lack of this, namely,
what he is calling in the religion we learned from our forefathers that is we did not see our fathers doing or saying that, and off off fathers never saw their fathers doing or saying that. So carry on with the religion that your forefathers followed for is true. And this, to which masala Selim is calling you is nothing but fabrications advice that he has made up. This is another species argument, in addition to the first one, as it rejected the truth on the basis of something that does not constitute proof for rejecting any idea or, namely the argument that the argument that what he brought was contrary to that which there and misguided fathers followed? Where do we find in their
argument, any proof to refute the message brought by the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, what has a reminder the Quran being sent down to him alone of all of us? That is what makes him better than us, so that the Quran was sent down to him and not us. And Allah singled him out for that, and most of the US to see how come if Allah was going to send the Prophet was going to send a messenger? Why choose him? Why don't you someone else choose one of the leaders of Qureshi one of the powerful people one of the rich people why sent him as illogical says elsewhere in the Quran? Makalu Lola luzira huddle Quran Allah Raju, demon Acharya Taenia alim, they said surely for large was going to
reveal a Quran, you would have sent it down to one of the two leaders of the two great cities meaning Macumba if Allah would have sent it to one of those people, why did he choose this man instead?
This is yet another species argument. Where's the proof of that? to refute Wait, where's the proof of that, to refute what you said, we're not all the messengers like this, Allah bless them with a message and instructed them to call people to Allah, because none of these arguments that they produce was fit to refute what the messengers of Allah is, and and Allah tells us where they came from, and that the people were in doubt about my reminder, they had no knowledge or clear proof. So they fell into doubt, and we're content with it. And when the clear truth came to them, and they had already decided to persist in their doubt, they produce these arguments to ward off the truth, not
as a result of any thorough examination of the truth of the issue, but because they had decided to turn away it is
is well known that if anyone who has such an attitude and speaks on the basis of doubt and stubbornness, his words are not accepted, acceptable, and he is not able to undermine the truth in the least, because he has no strong argument. He is the one who is to be blamed to be blamed and criticized as soon as he starts talking, therefore, along with them of the punishment said, where they have not yet tasted my punishment, that is, they have the audacity to say these words because they were enjoying a life of ease in this world, and nothing of the punishment of Allah has shocked them. If they had tested if they had tasted his punishment, they would not have had the audacity to
say that, or do they possess the treasure of the of the bounty of your Lord, the Almighty that we store so that they can give to whomever they wish and withhold from whomever they wish? Because they said, What has a reminder the Quran being sent down to him alone of all of us? In other words, the bounty and mercy of Allah subhana wa, tada are not under their control, such that they could deny the blessings and gifts of Allah to anyone. So that's from the arrogance and the audacity that they would say, the shorty Allah should have chosen us over the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah says, do they control the treasures of Allah azza wa jal? Are they the ones that decide who
becomes a prophet who becomes a messenger who receives guidance on something in the control?
Or is there the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them so that they are able to do whatever they want? Then let them ascend to heaven by any means, that would enable them to reach to heaven, then cut off and prevent Divine Mercy from reaching the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? How can they say such things when they are the most helpless and weakest of illustration? Or is their aim to gang up and MS choose to cooperate and to cooperate in support of falsehood and seek to undermine the truth for that is the reality of what they really want to do. But they will not be able to achieve this aim. Rather, their efforts will be wasted and their troops
will be defeated. Hence, Allah says, they are nothing but troops, of disbelievers who have gathered against the prophet, but they will soon be defeated.
Get their butts covered.
Before them, the people of North rejected their profit, as did add in the mighty, and the mighty Pharaoh.
Whatever, whatever mood wounds, what else have when Anka
enter mode and the people of length and the dwellers of the woods such were the parties who gathered against their profits?
about rules, who left
each of them rejected the messengers, therefore, my punishment became inevitable. Why am I
sorry, to hear the Malla it sounds like you had to
hate them. I mean,
they're only waiting for a single blast of the trumpet on the Day of Resurrection, after which there will be no turning back. He Allah subhanaw taala warns them, that he will do warn them that he will do to them what he did to the to the nations that came before them, who were stronger than them and gathered more troops to support falsehood before them that people have not rejected the prophets. Their profit, as did I add that people that people have heard, and the mighty Pharaoh who commanded great troops and immense power losses and says we're free to hold on Oh, tide.
Low tide is translated here as the mighty Pharaoh, and it's a symbol of his mighty doesn't mean mighty. And what it is a stick that you put in the ground, a big log of steak, like the one that you have, if you have lucky number, those old tends to these travel, they have a stake in the middle of the tend to hold her up a big wooden log or stick that they put in the middle. That's called a steak. And this is what Furong was known for the larger dimensions in Surah Al Fajr, as well. And that's because he said that he used to punish people using them. He will type people around these big logs, and he would torture them. That was one of the ways that he would persecute people. And so
Allah azza wa jal mentioned this on more than one occasion in the Quran to show his transgression, his tyranny. What kind of a tyrant he was an evil man, that this is the way that he would torture people. And so Allah azza wa jal says that despite his might, and despite the power that he had, on his time, Allah azza wa jal destroyed him as well. and promote the people of Saudi and the people of Lot and the dwellers of the word. The word translate here as the word refers to a place that is crowded with different types of trees and plants. They were the people I'm sure I've mentioned this before, it's horrible acre, being the area either the tree that they worship, some scholars said, or
the set refers to the place that they live. That is a place that has trees and the acre is a tree that is weaving in and out it is something which the branches intertwine together, that were the parties who gathered against their profits. They gathered together all that they had of power, people and weapons in order to refute the truth, but that did not avail them.
in the slightest, each of them rejected the messengers, therefore my punishment became inevitable for them. So what makes these people Quraysh better than others and more pure of heart, so that they will not meet the same fate as others. So let them await a single blast of the trumpet on the Day of Resurrection, after which there will be no turning back. That is, there will be no way for them to return or go back. It will destroy them and eradicate them. If they persist in what they are doing.
We'll call bene Jelena good point Cabella. I mean, he's,
they say, Our Lord, he's done for us our share of the punishment before the day of reckoning is better Isla mankelow Now go rather than with a lead in who will
bear with patients whatever they say. Remember our sleeve that would the man of endurance and worship who constantly turned to us.
As a hardened energy Burning Man who said via nebulizer he will issue
the early we compelled the mountains to glorify Allah with him in the afternoon and then in the morning.
Well, while you're on natura kulula who was
and the birds and the birds too, who flocked to him? They are would echo his glorification. Why should I then wash other than moon?
matter what else level we are all that we strengthen Him in His Kingdom and granted him wisdom and sound judgment and clarity in speech. They say Our Lord hasten for us our share of the punishment before the day of reckoning, that is, these disbelievers say in their ignorance and stop and are seeking to hasten the punishment or Lord, hastening for us our share of the punishment that is what has been allocated to us of punishment in this world. Before the day of reckoning. They persisted in this demand and they claimed if you are Mohamed Salah barley Salam was speaking the truth, the sign of truthfulness would be that you would bring the punishment upon us. So the Croatia demanding
exactly what the people who came before them demanded from the nations that preceded if you look at the stories in the Quran, and then some more than others, one of the things that they would say to their prophets is bring the punishment of Allah shows the punishment of Allah if you're truthful. And so the Quraysh is saying something similar to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And Allah says, messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, bear with patients, whatever they say, as the messenger is before you will also patient and steadfast for the words for the world, for the words will not harm the truth at all. And they will not harm you out or rather, the only harm themselves
having instructed is probably His Messenger, salallahu Alaihe salam to bear with patients, with patients, whatever his people said. Allah Now instructs him to seek help in being patient by worshipping Allah, and remembering how to worshippers worship Allah as he says elsewhere, so very patiently, what they say and glorify and praise your Lord before the rising of the sun and before it's sitting on one of the greatest worshipers was a prophet of Allah, that would add a certain amount of insurance in worship, that is here create stamina in worshiping Allah subhanaw taala in both physical and spiritual terms, so Allah azza wa jal pleases his servant there with it cinemas
Prophet there with Ali salaam, and as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he described him, he said, Cana Abba, dumbness. He was the most worship full of people, meaning someone constantly the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. We've already mentioned previously, some of those durations how that would Ali salaam would spend his time in the recitation of his revelation and he would spend his time in the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. And so the prophets haven't described him as being the most worship full of people. And that is when the hadith of Abdullah Ahmad ibn arsenal, the Allahu anhu, met with even Amara wanted to fast every day of the year, and he wanted to spend
all night a week in surah the prophets and kept telling him to do less and less, until for fasting, he said to him, first one day and he one day, he said, O Messenger of Allah can do more. He said, There is no more this is the best of fasting, it is the fasting of double the only center and the prayer of that would night that he would sleep for half the night, pray for the third and then rest for a six. And that's what he would do every night. He said that is the best form of prayer. And so the prophets of Allah Islam, phrases that were that Islam has Allah does as well, but Allah azza wa jal mentions that he's rule eight, you had stamina, you had strength when it came to the worship of
Allah azza wa jal, and that is because strength generally is a good characteristic. Everyone likes strength and strength is a good and characteristic that people look for in others. But most people look for a type of strength that is only physical. Allah has written places that will not he said I'm not only because he had physical strength, but he had spiritual strength. What a spiritual strength, the stamina to be able to spend hours upon in reading the Quran, spend hours worshiping Allah azza wa jal in surah. spending days of the month in fasting, that is spiritual strength, because some people or many people have physical strength, but they don't have spiritual strength.
They don't have the spiritual stamina to worship Allah subhanaw taala and that is why amongst the self you find
was regions where some of the setup would finish the Quran in the Raka. Or in the night, that spiritual strength that they will spend the whole night to resend that Imam Shafi Rahim Allah time in the month of Ramadan every day he would finish the Quran every day finish the Quran, and in the last two nights would finish it twice, once during the day, once during the night mental clarity. So the self had spiritual strength when it came to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala the stamina to be able to stand for hours in Salah. I was in the recitation of the Quran I was focused on on knowledge, when you look at their stories of how they would travel hundreds of miles for single
Hadith and stamina. Not easy for someone to go and do that someone thinks I'm going to go travel for like days and this one Hadith, like why? But that's what they did, because Allah azza wa jal gave to him and that is when loss pantalla is given to us as a lesson here. He said to the Prophet Selim, be patient like that would, how's that word patient he tend to Allah azza wa jal in worship, and yet spiritual strength and that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would spend his nights a week in prayer, and he would have blisters in his feet and his feet would get swollen, and he will spend that time in Salah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who constantly turned to us. That is He turned
to Allah and Allah his affairs by repenting to him, loving Him, showing devotion to Him, fearing him, putting his hope in Him, often beseeching him and calling upon him, turning to him whenever he committed an error, giving up and repenting sincerely, because of his constantly turning to his Lord and worshiping Him. Allah subjugated the Countess to him, so that they would glorify and praise the Lord with him.
In the afternoon, and in the morning, that is at the beginning and end of the day, and Allah subjugated the birds to who flocked to him and gathered with him, they are the mountains and the birds would echo his glorification and obedience to the words of ALLAH, or mountains, echoes, glorification, or echo, echo his glorification of Allah and YouTube Aubert. This is a blessing that Allah bestowed upon him because of his worship. Then Allah tells us how blessed him how he blessed him with great great dominion, we strengthen Him in His kingdom, that is, we strengthen him with what we gave him of means and large numbers of troops and equipment, by means of which Allah
strengthen Him in His kingdom because that will that Islam was a king as well as a prophet. Some of the prophets of Allah will kings and from them weren't there wouldn't essentially when it comes to set up so Allah says, We gave him strength in his kingdom. So Allah speaks about two strengths, strengths, strength, in worship and stamina in worship, and then strength of kingdom which one does it begin with first? The one that's more important, that's all is a principle in the Quran Allah focus is always on what is most important first, and then by extension, he had other types of strength as well.
Then Allah tells us how he blessed him with knowledge and granted him wisdom.
There is profit and great knowledge and sound judgment and clarity and speech that is when judging disputes among people.
While at Canada, cost me is there's a world out all the
has a story of the disputing has a story of the disputing parties reached you when they climb the wall into his chamber.
Is the hallway with FFS? Er, I mean, whom call Lula the Hoff hos Manny Bohol bar boy nine bar when
Bill how help or
help you to step away, Dina Dina Isla Silva is
when they entered his chamber that was started by them, they said Do not be afraid. We are two disputants one of whom has wronged to the other judge between us and truth and do not be unjust guide us to the street path.
In the FE level this
what is wrong and now you're telling Wiley Nadja Well, Jana

He has certainly certainly wronged you by demanding that you're you, you will be added to his flock and need many associates or partners around one another except those who believe and do righteous deeds and how few few they are, then they would realize that we were only testing him. So he asked his Lord for forgiveness, fell down in frustration and turned to Allah in repentance.
off hold on Allah who the leak were in Allah who then Allah was nema.
So We forgave him for that fairly nearness to us with him in the hereafter and a blissful journey's end.

sure the law home mother. Sure do you don't be man as a woman.
We said Oh, that would rarely we made you a ruler in the land. So judge between the people in truth and do not follow your desires. Let's they lead you astray from Path of Allah fairly. Those who go stray from the path of Allah will have a severe punishment because they forgot the day of reckoning the day of reckoning, having told us that he gave his profit. There will sound judgment when judging disputes among people, for which he was well known. And people would seek him out for the reason. For that reason. Allah subhanaw taala now tells us the story of two disputants, who came to him concerning an issue that Allah made a test for them with analysen because of a mistake that he made,
but Allah had mercy on him and forgave him. And he caused this to be referred to him.
He calls this case to be referred to him. Allah says Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has a story of the disputing parties reached you for is a wondrous story, when they climb the wall into his chain into his chamber. When that wood was there, it was a space in which that we would worship Allah, and the two men entered it without permission, and without asking permission, and they did not enter through the door. And so the prophet that would already slam is in his mouth, Rob, and as we said, to me, Rob refers to an elevated room that they used to have a chamber that they would spend worshiping Allah subhanaw taala, that with Ali Salam would spend his time there, and they had
only one entrance and exit. And if he was in there, people knew not to go and disturb him. So he was amazed on one occasion, as Allah Azza mentions here that when he comes, he finds two people that are with him. Where do they come from? How do they enter, they didn't come in with him through the door. And that is why some of the scholars were of the position amongst the self, that these two men were angels that Allah azza wa jal sent in order to give this lesson to them without a certain manner. They said, No, they weren't angels. But Allah subhanaw taala gave them the ability to go in one way or another, they found a way in, because it was going to be a test for it, they would already sinner
Allah knows best. Therefore, when they entered upon him in this manner, he was startled and was afraid of them. They said to Him, we are to disputants. So do not be afraid, one of us has wrong the other charge between us in truth, there is justly and do not side with one of us, and do not be unjust guide us to the street to the right path. The point here is that it became clear to him that the two distributions are seeking the fear and just verdict. And as that was the case, they will tell him their story truthfully, so the Prophet of Allah that would was not offended by their exhortation to be fair, and he did not tell them off for that. One of them said, This is my brother,
he stated that he was his brother, either by faith or by blood or by friendship, because in that case, there should be no wrongdoing. And wrongdoing, on his part would be worse than wrongdoing on the part of anyone else. He has 99 use, which is a great deal of good and he should be contented with that with what Allah has given him, and I have only one, but he he covets it. He said, Let me take care of her. That is give it to me and let me be in charge of it. And he has been overbearing towards me in his speech. That is He has overpowered me with his words, because he kept bothering me until he got that you almost got it. When you heard the one you heard his words. And it is known
from the context that this is what really happened. So there's no reason for anyone to object and say, why did that we pass judgment before listening to what the other party had to say that would said he has certainly wronged you by demanding that you be added to his flock. And this is the usual way with many associates and close friends. And then he said, Indeed many associates or partners wrong one another because wrongdoing is something that is ingrained in people except those who believe and do righteous deeds, because what they have faith and righteous deeds, prevent them from wronging others and how few they are. This is like the verse in which Allah subhanaw taala says, a
few of my slaves are grateful that Allah Subhana Allah gives to us the story of the Buddha or Islam. These two men come to him. One of them says that my friend here my brother, he has 99 us uses a type of flock type of sheep 99
And he already owns I only have one. And he wants my one as well. He's seeking my one as well, as far as to see differ as to whether this was literal or metaphorical. These used in the stories they literal or metaphorical. Some said, that was literal in the sense that this is what these people are disputing. They're disputing about this. But the lesson is not about us here. It was a lesson for that with that Easter, I mean, the share of the profits like that would and others, they could marry as many wives as they wanted, was open for them. And that is when the Hadith of the Prophet Bukhari when Salim Ali Islam says that tonight I will go to how many women
the Hadith 100.
And from each of them, I will have a warrior someone said from Satan, sha Allah and he didn't. So none of them gave birth except for one that gave birth to a malformed child. And so there was it was permissible for them to have to have numerous wives. And so there would be salami. They said that he had 99 wives, and he wanted another woman as well as the wife but she was already married. And so he wasn't able to marry her therefore, but he was someone that is equally coveted that he wanted her. Like in the story that we just didn't in the streets or that doesn't Allah azza wa jal tell us that the Prophet son wanted to marry Xena big Josh, that she was married to Zaid. So the prophets, the
prophets of Allah, even if that's something that they want, they don't break the laws of Allah, and they don't overstep their bounds. And that is why when it came to the Prophet salamati, they say to him, keep your wife, he gave him sincere advice told him to stay with his wife, likewise, they would only set up and so Allah azza wa jal wanted to teach him because the prophets of Allah shouldn't be attached to anything more than their attachment to Allah subhanaw taala some of the scholars were of the position that that's what it's referring to. Allah Azza doesn't say that explicitly. It's not mentioned in the Hadith of the Prophet sunnah. But you will find it in the statement of a number of
the scholars have said if in the in the fasciae under the sun or is literal, these are two people who had a dispute concerning the use. One has linked to 911. And so they might they would add, instead of me saying to the one who has only the one that your friend is, is is oppressing you by wanting the one that you have. But he didn't see the reason as to why he wanted that one didn't go and delve into maybe other valid reason. Maybe there's reason why that one is something that he wanted or that he wanted to benefit him in some way or something. And Allah azza wa jal knows best.
Then they would realize when he passed judgment between them, that we were only testing him that is we tested him by causing this case to be referred to him, so as to alert him to alert him to something. So he asked his Lord for forgiveness for what he had done, fell down in frustration and turn to Allah in repentance, repenting sincerely and worshiping Allah. And so clearly there is a lesson here for the listener, he was making the mistake of some sort, because otherwise why would he make Toba? Why turn back to Allah Azza didn't seek forgiveness unless there was a mistake that he made somewhere. And Allah wanted to rectify that mistake of his as Allah as it often does with his
prophets, the prophets, when they make mistakes, they are rectified and, and corrected by Allah subhanaw taala totally forgave him for that. That is for what he were here done. And Allah bestowed all kinds of honors upon him and said, very newness to us, that is high status and closest to us awaits him in the hereafter enter blissful journeys, and that is destination, with regard to the mistake that would at least that I made and for which he sought forgiveness, Allah does not tell us what it was because there was no need to do so. Therefore, trying to find out what it was, is unnecessary. Rather, what matters in the story that Allah tells us here is his kindness towards him,
and that he repented and turned to him and was raised in status thereby, so that after repenting, he was better than he was before. We said, Oh, that will vary. We have made you a ruler in the land. When you rule concerning their religious and worldly affairs, so judge between the people and truth, that is with justice, and that is not possible, possible possible, except with the necessary knowledge, knowledge of the real life situations.
And the ability to carry out just rulings and do not follow your desires and be biased towards one party because of blood ties or friendship, or love or hatred for the other party. That's they named me your desire to lead you astray from the Path of Allah and take you beyond the bounds of the straight path. Very those who go stray from the path of Allah, especially those who do so deliberately, deliberately, will have a severe punishment, because they forgot the day of reckoning, if they had remembered, if they had remembered, remembered it, fear would have been instilled in their heart, in their hearts and they would have not gone along with tempting desires.

didn't come about me at the Bell who I add the E while he got out.
This is a blessed book that we have sent down to you so that they may ponder its verses and so that the people are understanding may pay heed. Here Allah tells us of His perfect wisdom In creating the heavens and the earth, and that he did not create them in vain, for no purpose and to serve no interest. That is what the disbelievers think of the Lord, as they harbor notions about Allah that are not befitting to His Majesty. So Walter disbelievers from the fire for four days what they will settle the score with them, and it will overwhelm them or overwhelm them completely, rather Allah's creation of the heavens and the earth is based on truth and his for the sake of, of truth, for
larger greatness based on truth. The story of the will that Islam is a story of justice, Allah is just telling you to be just in terms of his rulings be fair when you judge them just and Allah is really saying, if that is the command of the award, that Allah tells his creation, me, you everyone else be just unfair, isn't Allah azza wa jal, then, therefore more worthy of being just unfair? And from his justice, do you think that that he would create everything and us for no purpose for no reason? That wouldn't be from the justice and fairness of Allah subhanaw taala. And so largely, the links the two issues here, the justice that we should have, as rulers, as parents as people in our
lives, and therefore the justice that is more worthy and belonging to Allah subhanaw taala
created them so that people may know the perfect nature of his knowledge, my an all encompassing authority, and that he alone is deserving of worship, and not those that did not create even an atom in the heavens or on earth, and that the resurrection is true. And Allah will judge between the people of good and the people of evil. So the one who is ignorant of Divine Wisdom should not think that Allah will treat them all equally when he judges them. Hence, he says, should we equate those who believe and do righteous deeds with those who spread mischief in the land? Or should we equate those who fear Allah with the wicked
that is, that is, this is not befitting to divine wisdom and knowledge and judgment. This is a blessed book that we have sent down to you in which there is much goodness and abundant knowledge, guidance, away from error, healing from disease, light to illuminate, light to illuminate the darkness, and every ruling that counts the Accountable people may need. It contains definitive evidence for every issue, by means of which it becomes the most majestic book to appear in this world since Allah created it.
So that they may ponder it versus that is, this is the wisdom This is the wisdom behind it, behind sending it down, so that people may ponder it versus and just find a knowledge in it and reflect upon its subtle meanings and wisdom for by pondering and reflecting upon its meanings. Thinking about it. Time after time is blessing and good may be attained. This indicates a is encouraged to reflect upon the Quran, and that doing so is one of the best of these, and that citation includes reflection is better than rapid recitation that does not achieve this this purpose. But one of the main purposes and objectives of the Quran is to ponder over it to contemplate over to reflect all
these meanings is Allah azza wa jal says Allah says this Quran is blessed it will reveal to revealed to you so that you may ponder it's versus contemplation is to stop and think about what Allah azza wa jal has said. And there are two levels of contemplation. One is the general contemplation that every Muslim can do, and that is based on the general meanings of the Quran. Every Muslim knows the meaning of Tawheed. They know the meaning of Jana, they're not the meaning of the Hellfire. They're not the meaning of Eman. So everyone can contemplate in a general way. But there is another level of contemplation which is a higher and better contemplation. And that is the one that is achieved by
reading Tafseer and understanding the background of the verses and what the scholars said, and what the companions said that the verse means and then you stop and in fact over it. And this was the practice of the self, that they would read the Quran with contemplation. They would study the Quran and they would stop and stopping and reflecting on the book of Allah azza wa jal heightens your Eman and it gives you a strength in terms of your connection with Allah azza wa jal in the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and the lessons that you can derive and the wisdoms and the benefits of Allah azza wa jal opens up free and that's why the author says that the people are reflection don't reflect
once they go back again and again and again. They finish the Quran, they start again and again and again. And that's what they do. And that's why when you look at the status of the self recording the Quran, there are many reflections that you find there in many contemplations that you find there in that the benefited from the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And so it is something which we've lost in our time, this ability to contemplate because everything's too fast. We want to read one and finish. Don't stop don't think
The practice of the setup was that they would read study and they would contemplate that is what the author says here. That to read recitation with reflection is better than rapid recitation with no reflection that you just read and finish. That's not the way of the self. The way of the self was that they would read with understanding and with contemplation, except for obviously, certain times and places like Ramadan, because it is good practice to finish as much as you can. So therefore, you may be slightly different in certain times and places. But the general rule is that you don't we fast and that is why when the man came to you with our buzzworthy Allah one woman, he said that I
finished yesterday how many Jews in solid lead in my life prayer, even Amber said to him, I would rather read to small Surah of the Quran the whole night with reflection than what you did. That's more beloved to me. Because just reading, reading, it looks good, it's really bad and you get reward and it's still good, but the benefit from the Quran will be limited. But when you stop and you reflect on you understand the words of Allah azza wa jal, then you get more than just the recitation you get the benefit of understanding as well. So that people have understanding may pay may pay heed, that is so that people are of sound mind may learn through reflecting upon our issues of
knowledge. This indicates that learning anything from this book will be commensurate with a person's maturity and understanding.

on FM noon, l am sick BYOD Risa. We said this is our gift, so give freely or withhold without having to render account.
We're in Canada, who then Lazuli was never
very nice to us, with him in the hereafter and blissful journeys and having praise dealt with and mentioned what happened to him and what he did Allah subhanaw taala now praises his son Solomon Ali Salam, as he says, We bestowed upon that would suit a man that is blessed him with him and made him a source of comfort and joy to him, a good and faithful slave. This refers to set a man and he sat down who possessed characteristics that deserved praise for he constantly turned to us. That is He constantly turned to Allah in all situations, with devotion and love, remembering him, calling upon him, humbling himself and striving harder to earn the pleasure of Allah giving precedence to that
over all things. One afternoon, noble swift footed steeds were presented beforehand. There was transit here as normal swift footage, steeds referred to find horses, one of the characteristics characteristic
First of which is that they stand on their own three feet with one foot race, and they are very beautiful and pleasant to look at, especially those who need them. Such as kings. We know that Solomon Ali Salam was a king as well as a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala. And he had a vast kingdom like his father, though there are Eastern, and Allah azza wa jal mentioned the story here to show the blessings that Allah has bestowed upon Saudi men on Eastern ama that is that one day, as he's sitting, he has been presented with the best of horses, the finest horses that are beautiful to look at amazing in their appearance, amazing in their beauty. And from their beauty and how well trained
they were. While they were in terms of their training. It says the author says that they could stand on three feet, like you see sometimes in the shows where they do this pageantry shows and they trot, and they, there's a certain way that they do this to show that they are well trained horses, very, very good horses, not every horse can do that takes years of training, he has many of them make this. And that's what the authors are referring to. This is what is mentioned in many of the books of Tafseer, that this is what is referred to so he's there. And he's watching this, seeing the beauty of these horses, seeing how well trained, they are seeing the way that they trot and are
presented before him. These horses continue to be presented to him until the sunset, and they distract him from the afternoon prayer and remembrance of Allah. And they continue therefore to be presented to him until the salah time leaves initially are the salah time leaves, and he's distracted because of the beauty that he sees before him. And this the fact that they distracted him from the type of Salah and from the remembrance of Allah Azza was mentioned by a number of the companions such as you'd be screwed for the yellow one. So he said regretting what he had done and seeking to draw close to Allah, because he had distracted him because they had distracted him and as
to give precedence to love for Allah over love for anything else.
I love to love these things, these horses, these good things, these horses that were translated here as love also includes the meaning of giving presidents to in other words, he said, I gave presidents to love of these good things, which refers to wealth in general, in this case was referred to is the horses because of the command of my Lord until the galloping horses disappeared from sight. So Allah azza wa jal as we said, when it comes to the prophets of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala does not want them to have those attachments to anything that do not befitting for the one that receives revelation from Allah and it's a prophet of Allah, that is attached to anything except Allah
subhanaw taala. So the man Ali salaam enjoys from the beautification of the dunya from the the blessings that Allah gift him from the dunya the wealth that Allah Allah bestowed upon him, but when he diverted him away from the remnants of Allah azza wa jal, he realized that this was not going to be a problem. And that shows you that the general ruling in the Sharia is that everything which is highlighted is permissible for you to use permissible for you to play sports permissible for you to go and do what is had you like driving you like, do what you want, so long as it doesn't need you to Allah's negligence. If it delays you from your prayer, takes you away from Salah takes away from
Quran takes you away from the car, then now it's a problem. Now that thing has become a test for you rather than a blessing. And so this is the general principle that you do because looking at horses, watching them is mobile has Hello, nothing wrong with it. But if we leads to you doing something haram leads to you becoming negligent of Allah leads to you, for example, not praying on time that it's a problem. And that's what the general ruling is. So people come and say can we play football can was the ruling replay video, so long as those things are haram in and of themselves halal, permissible, so long as they don't take you away from Salah and other things from your wedgie. But
someone who's playing football and the heart goes as it goes, no, no, that's a problem. Someone was all night playing on video games, sleep at 3am, the no professional, that's a problem. And so all of this is in this context that you see here in the story of three man hurry syndrome. Then he said bring them back to me. So they were brought back and he began to pass his hands over their legs. And next that as he started to cut their legs and next with his sword, for those the verse of the Quran says must have be soaked must an Arabic language literally means to swipe to wipe. But it can also mean to use a sword and swipe both of those meanings. So the scholars here differ as to what he did.
One of the regions in our baskets both positions, one of his narrations is that he wiped over them that he wiped over the horses he told them to come back as a sign from Allah azza wa jal. So he wept over them as a reminder that these are blessings of Allah that you should be mindful of Allah subhanaw taala. And the other said that he regretted what he did. So He swiped with the sword wiped with the sword, meaning that he What does that mean?
sorted them in order to give them to the poor. And that was the position of many of the scholars of Tafseer including Abraham bass, he has both equations that are reporting for the Allah one woman. And that's why some of the scholars said that it's possible that he did both. Because when will our best selves both what can you do? What can you wipe over them with his hand and then slaughter them as well and give them to the poor because they weren't a distraction. And that is a principle in this region. If you have something that's Pfitzner for you, is halal.
fitna for you so trial takes you away from Allah's remembrance, then you get rid of it, give it to someone else get rid of it's Hello. But for you it's not a good thing give it to someone else that will benefit given to charity give it away, for the sake of Allah azza wa jal indeed with Tessa Solomon, that is we tested him and tried him by taking away his dominion and separating him from it. because mistakes are due to human nature and place on his throne, a body. This was a devil, which Allah willed and decreed, should sit on his throne, and have control over suddenly man's dominion for the duration of this test. Then Solomon turned to Allah in repentance. And this is also a test
that took place with slim and it snaps. Remember, these numbers we know had control over the gin.
One of those gin one of those devils takes his form, he looks like him, and he takes his throne to the extent that the people believe that that is Salim and Ali's setup and no one believes that surname and so the man anymore and he's telling them that I'm sorry, man, this is an imposter but they don't believe him as a test from Allah subhanaw taala because again, to show that he shouldn't be overly attached to his kingdom. So Allah azza wa jal tested him for a number of days in this way, and then Allah removed the devil from that throne. And so they made it Sam said that again. There are many details concerning the stories that you will find in the books of Tafseer. But as we said
before the author Hamlet, tada, what he does is he goes to the statements of the setup, and the companions and he sees what they kind of agreed upon. And then he leaves all the other details that may have been taken from his right traditions or from something else that may not be as authentic. He just goes to the essence of the story. But so this is the essence of the story that Allah tested him. In that way. Please, the devil upon his throne for a number of days that everyone believed was three men, until Allah azza wa jal returned back to his throne, because he turned to Allah and forgiveness and repentance, and so not as diligent, replaced the devil with hymns. subhanaw taala.
He said, My Lord, forgive me and grant me a dominion, the life of which will never be granted to anyone after me, for indeed you either restore, and Allah answered his prayer and forgave him and restored his dominion to him, and added to it something that was never granted to anyone after him, me the subjugation of the devils team, so that they go whatever he wanted, and that for him in the sea, bringing forth pearls and jewels, Whoever among them disobeyed Him, He chained him with shackles and tied him up. And that is the dominion that Allah gave him. And as we mentioned before, the hadith of the prophet sent him when he saw one of those devils and he wanted to tie him to the
pillar of the messages that he said were not for the star of my brother's Salim and I would have done so because he asked for kingdom, no one after him would have. And so the Prophet Selim respected the two of his brothers Sleeman. And he said, and we said, this is our gift, so enjoy and give freely to whomever you wish, or withhold from whatever you wish, from whomever you wish, without having an A to render account, that is with no blame on you and no reckoning because Allah subhanaw taala knew of his perfect justice and good judgment, you should not think that this was for such a man in this world only, and not in the Hereafter, rather, you will have much good in the
hereafter to hence Allah says very nice to us awaits him in the hereafter and a blissful, blissful journey. And that is he is one of those who will be brought close to Allah and will be honored in various ways by him. So there were prophets of Allah, as we know that went through a great deal of difficulty and hardship, poor, persecuted, tortured, driven from their lands threatening of threatened with stoning and so on. And then the prophets of Allah, that Allah honored and favored give to them blessings give to them Kingdom give to them wealth Lex Lima and Ali Salaam. Both of those prophets are prophets of Allah azza wa jal to show to you that both are paths to ALLAH SubhanA
data, you don't have to be poor. To go into general you'd have to be poor to come closer to Allah azza wa jal, the rich also have a path to Allah azza wa jal, their path may be different. Their challenges and trials and tests may be different, but they also have a path. And that is Allah Azza didn't give us examples from different different rungs of society and different people's circumstances in the prophets, because that is how people are people. Some of them are poor, some of them are wealthy. And just as some of those poor people will enter the agenda because of the goodness some of those wealthy people entity agenda because of the goodness as well.
The lessons we learn from the story of Deadwood and cinema and peace be upon them both. Allah Subhan Allah the author now we mentioned a number of points of benefit that you can derive from the two stories that we mentioned of the woods and sunny Malema center, plus Panatela toes His Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam stories of those who came before him so as to make him steadfast and reassure him, he told him about their worship with great patience and turning to Allah, so that he would along to compete with them and draw close to Allah as they did, and to be patient in bearing the harm of his people. Hence, here a lot here when Allah mentions the harm that is people tried to
do to him and what they said about him and his message, he instructed him to be patient and to remember his slave that would so that he might find comfort in that and that is the greatest lesson for one of the stories the stories out there wouldn't say any man What is the greatest lesson what to all of those prophets? Do? They tend to Allah, times of ease times of hardship times of tests time?
trials, the old is constantly turning back to Allah azza wa jal.
Allah praises and loves a person to have energy when doing acts of obedience and worship and be strong in both physical and mental terms. Because if a person is strong, it will result in him doing those acts of obedience properly and doing a great deal of them, which does not happen. When a person is weak and has no resolve. The individual should seek means of developing strength and energy and not become lazy and slow, as that will lead to loss of energy that will weaken one's resolve. And that requires training. Building stamina, and worship isn't something that you got on the first day of the second day requires training. And that's why the Center for us to stop the
children young, six, seven years old, start training them in terms of Salah and reading Quran and so on. Because then when they reach the age of 16 1718, they're ready now, they've done it for years, they used to it they're accustomed to it, as opposed to someone who starts when they're 20, then finds it difficult, then takes them seven, eight years to get used. That's the problem. And so there is a reason why the Sharia encourages people at certain ages to do certain things. And so that stamina takes time. But if a person finds that it's too much, they shouldn't overburden themselves. The Sharia doesn't tell you to go to an extreme where you're now so overly tired, so exhausted, so
fatigued, that you can't worship and he's still trying to do so, like the Prophet seldom did when he came into the message and he saw ropes dangling from the ceiling. He said, whose ropes are these? They said that your wife is a messenger of Allah. When they become tired, they hold on to it and they pray. The rest of them said cut them all down. Allah doesn't need this type of Riba. Pray as much as you can, and when you're tired rest. And then when you have energy, pray again.
Learning to Allah and our circumstances is one of the characteristics of the prophets of Allah and the elite of His creation, as Allah praise dellwood And Solomon for that. So people should follow their example in their guidance. Those prophets are the ones whom Allah guided that to guide us be an example to follow. Allah honored his slave that would Ali Salam with a beautiful voice, by means of which Allah calls the mountains that do not hear and the birds which cannot understand, to echo him when he raised his voice in praise of Allah, and to glorify Him, and to glorify Allah with him in the afternoon. And in the morning. One of the greatest blessings that Allah can bestow upon his
slave is to bless is to bless him with beneficial knowledge, so that he knows how to judge between people, as Allah best his slave that will that Islam with such knowledge, a lot demonstrates his care for his prophets and chosen ones, if they make some mistake, by putting them through tests and trials, so that troubles will be dispelled from them, and they will become better than they were originally.
It has happened today within cinema and PSP upon and that's not only for the prophets, Allah doesn't only test the prophets to show them that they've made an error or a mistake or that they should turn back to Allah, Allah and Allah test all of the believers in that way. And the believer who is smart and intelligent is the one who went there in a test, they stop and they think, why is Allah testing me here? What have I done? What do I need to rectify? What is the lesson in this for me as opposed to Allah just testing me is difficult, it's hard and that's what most people do. But the believer stopped, some reflects. Allah tested me here for a reason. Allah wants me to go back to him. Allah
wants me to repent, Allah wants me to change something, or Allah doesn't want me to change anything but Allah wants to increase me in good. So he wants me to show more patience, more gratitude. The believer finds those lessons as the prophets of Allah did. So this isn't unique to the prophets of Allah, it's just that they're better or being able to see the signs of Allah azza wa jal than others, a prophet peace be upon them are protected from error in that which they convey from Allah subhanho wa taala, because the purpose of their mission cannot be achieved otherwise, however, they however, they may commit some sins which is something inherent in human nature, but Allah who causes
them to repent, by His kindness, they commit minor sins, not major sins. So the prophets can commit minus sins, they can do things unintentionally, they can make certain errors, and Allah Azza always rectifies them and within their sins, there are lessons. So some of the scholars said even in that they are they are rewarded, because when they sin, and that is corrected, it becomes a lesson for the people and the people learn from it, where they will commit major sins. And so what you find, for example, in some religions where they say that certain prophets committed Zina certain profit stalls, and that's not something that we have in our religion, that will listen, I'm usually stayed
in his chamber to worship His Lord. Hence the two disputants climbed up, climb the wall of his chamber, because he was alone in his chamber and no one else could come to him in that place. He did not devote all his time to the people, even though many cases were referred to him for judgment. Rather, he allocated some time to be alone with the Lord, and to find comfort in worshiping Him, which helped him to be sincere in his affairs. But number one in the Sharia or before the Prophet was salam in the old prophets, that Sharia, you could only worship Allah azza wa jal in terms of prayer, in certain places, had to be a masjid had to be a Muhammad, you've got to just pray anyway.
And that's why from the special virtues of this OMA that the Prophet Sonam was given with God that's real auto masjid and what the Hora the whole earth has been claiming is the place of purification and prayer, me and you can go anywhere.
I pray with a few exceptions, obviously. But the vast majority of the earth, you can go anywhere where you're traveling, you're busy, you're at work on pray, as long as it's clean, you can go and pray. But in the old shipyards they couldn't do so they had to be in a certain place in order to pray. That's the first thing that the author mentions here. The second thing being that we also benefit from the Buddha Ali Salam, as he was someone who had good time management is a prophet of Allah. But he didn't spend all of his time just judging between people know he had time for his own a bad time for his family time. That's what the prophets of Allah do the good in terms of giving
everything it's true, right. Etiquette should be followed when entering upon rulers and others, because when the two disputants entered upon that word in an unusual manner, not from the usual door, he was startled by them and was very upset by that. And he did not think that was that it was appropriate at all. So therefore we don't take from the story, that you can just surprise people and draw upon them and say no, but Allah said in the story of their world, that that's what they did not that's not the meaning here. This was a test for that will daddy Sam, so the general etiquettes of seeking permission when you enter upon people and so on, those still remain. The judge should not
refuse to issue a verdict on the basis of truth because of bad manners or inappropriate conduct on the part of the disputing because they entered without permission. But when they entered without permission, didn't say you didn't give a bad verdict to them because of the bad or poor conduct in that regard. They will die they Salam was a man of perfect forbearance, as he did not get angry with the two disputants when they came to him without asking for permission, even though he was the king, he did not scold them or tell them off, is permissible for one who has been wrong to say to the one who wronged him, you have wronged me, or or wrongdoer, or you transgressed against me, and the like,
because they said we are to dispute since one of whom has wronged other meaning that this isn't considered to be backbiting or slander, if someone goes before a judge claiming they're right, and they see so and so harmed me, so and so oppressed me, so and so stolen from you, or whatever it may be. That's allowed in Islam. That's not called backbiting or slander or anything else, because this is done for a right and then the judge is the one who rules between the two of them. The one who is being exerted and advised even if he's of high status and very knowledgeable, should not get angry or upset. If someone advises or exhorts him, whether he should hasten to accept advice and be
grateful. The two disputants advised that would and he did not get upset or angry, and that did not deter him from giving a fair verdict. Rather, he passed a judgment that was completely fair. Mixing with relatives and friends and having a lot of financial worldly dealings with them may lead to ill feeling among them, and some of them may transgress against others. There is no way to prevent that except by fearing Allah and being patient in all situations, by means of having faith and doing righteous deeds. This is something that is very uncommon among people seeking forgiveness and doing acts of worship, especially prayer, or among the means of absorbing since because Allah connected
the forgiveness of that would sin to his prayer for forgiveness and his frustration, Allah honored his slaves dealt with and so they mined by bringing them close to him, and granting them a goodly reward. So no one should think that what happened to them undermines the status before Allah subhana wa Tada. This is how Allah shows kindness to sincere and devoted slaves, when he forgives them, remove removes the traces of their sins and all consequences that result from it. That even includes what people think. Because if they know of some of their sins, they will lose some of the of the respect they have for them. So Allah removes these effects. And that is not difficult for the most
generous, oft forgiving, ruling between ruling between people is a religious honor that was undertaken by the messengers of Allah and that lead of His creation, the job of the one who undertakes a as a
to judge on the basis of of truth and avoid the influence of whims and desires. Judging on the basis of truth requires knowledge of shattering matters, understanding of the issue that is referred to for judgment and knowing how to apply the shadow rulings to the one who is ignorant of other of either of these things of either of these matters is not fit to judge, and it is not permissible for him to undertake this task. And that is what the Prophet said them said, there are three types of judges one goes into Jannah to go into the fire, the one who has knowledge of the Sharia and rules according to it will go into Jannah. But the one who doesn't have knowledge, and rules, according to
his ignorance goes into the fire. And the one who has knowledge but doesn't rule according to that knowledge also goes into the fire. The judges should be aware of whims and desires and always be cautious about this matter, because no one is free of it. Rather, he should strive hard to make the truth, his aim. And at the time of judgment, yes, set aside any feelings of love or hate or hate towards any of the disputants so a man named Sam was one of the one of the virtues of that word. And one of the blessings that Allah bestowed upon him for one of the greatest blessings that Allah may bestow upon slave is to grant him a right to sun and if he is also a scholar that is Light upon
light, and socially man is one of the virtues of that would mean one of his good deeds. And that is why in the era that we mentioned already in so
look normal. When Solomon Ali Salam is making dua he says, Oh Allah, I'm grateful to you for the blessings that you bestowed upon me and upon my father before me because he acknowledges this very printer. Allah subhanaw taala praise when a man by describing him as a good and faithful slave who constantly turned to to us, Allah bestows abundant blessings and kindnesses upon his slaves, he blesses them by enabling them to do righteous deeds and attain good manners, then He praises them for that, when it is He Who bestowed it upon them by his generosity and kindness. So the man give precedence to love of Allah subhanaw taala over love of all else, everything that distracts a person
from Allah is bad, and blameworthy, so we should keep away from it, and focus on that which is more beneficial. We also learned the famous principle, whoever gives up something for the sake of Allah, Allah will compensate him with something better than that. So a man hamstrung the noble swift footed steeds that are so dear to people giving presents to Allah, to the love of Allah. So Allah compensated him with something better than that by subjugating the soft and gentle wind to him. And that blue on his command, and would cover the distance of amongst journey in the morning and amongst journey in the evening. And he subjugated the devil's team, who were able to do things that humans
could not. So the author is saying that so you might at least have sacrificed for the sake of Allah. He got rid of those horses, it said in some of them, there were over 100 of them. And they're extremely wealthy, those types of horses, one of them is worth a great deal of wealth. And so he got rid of them all, spite how much it cost and despite how wealthy that would have made him and when he got rid of more than Allah azza wa jal in place of that gave him a far better kingdom. Even things that no one could imagine from being able to control the devils and subject the wind. And those things. subjugation of devils was not granted to anyone after Solomon and he said, I'm today
manually. Saddam was a prophet King, who did what he wanted. But he did not want anything except what was just this is in contrast to the Prophet slave, whose will is subject to the Command of Allah. So he does not do anything, or refrain from anything except by the Vancouver divine command, as in the case of our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and that is more perfect. And so the Prophet Salman was given the choice either to be a prophet and the king Lakshmi man and the wood or to be a slave of Allah and the messenger. Like others like Rahim and Musa and others and that is what the prophet Salam chose and that is why the author says that that is a highest station with a
goal rather than
a you there is no doubt about who and he misses any issue Utah and will be no spill why the remember our sleeve a YouTube when he called upon his Lord, rarely the shaytaan has afflicted me with hardship and pain

And we restored his family Tim and doubled their number as a mercy from Us. And as a reminder to people of understanding, well be addicted, they'll
be here. Darkness in our saw built or not it either did in who we love, we said to him and take a bundle of rushes in your in your in your hand and strike your wife wants with it and do not break your oath verbally. We found him to be patient and steadfast, a good and faithful slave who constantly turned to just remember remember in this book full of reminders, our slave a you mentioned him in the best terms, speaking highly of him, went home before him. But he bought it with patients and did not complain to anyone except his Lord, turning only to him when he called upon his lord in supplication complaining to him and none other. He said My Lord Verde, the shaytaan has
affected me with hardship and pain. That is something very hard, tough and painful. The Satan has had been given the power to harm him physically. So he blew on his skin until it was filled with sores, which then ruptured, Making matters even worse. Similarly, his family died, and his fourth was destroyed. And we already mentioned in surah, Colombia the story of a Ugadi salatu salam that he was overcome with an illness that was so grave that he said in some of those relations, that he lasted for 18 years, that it was so grave, that his whole community shunned him, and he had to live on the outskirts of the town and the only person that would visit him was his wife and a couple of
his very close friends or not on the odd occasion, but only his wife on a regular basis. And she would be the only one that would come to him and look after him and everyone else he lost his wealth and you lost everything because of this disease that he had. And from the etiquettes of the Prophet see here is that he says that
Totally reshaped on that afflicted me with pain. He doesn't say that Allah you decreed it upon me, oh Allah you, this is your judgment, this is your role now, when it comes to things that are not befitting to be associated with Allah azza wa jal, then it is not good that you that you attribute them to him. And so he says here, that are the shaytan that afflicted me with hardship and pain. It will set him straight the ground with your foot that has struck the ground with your foot so that there will flow from it a spring of water with which you may wash yourself and from which you may drink, and it will take away the harm and pain from you. He did that and the home left him and Allah
subhanaw taala healed him come as we said, so on one occasion he was walking with his wife and his wife was ahead of him, because he was ill and it's slow and it takes some time to walk. And so she walked while ahead of him until she could no longer see him and he couldn't see her. And then Allah azza wa jal, he turns to Allah azza wa jal again into as he's been doing for 18 years, constantly patient with Elijah and making dua shows how to ask sometimes takes decades before Allah has written answers that DUA and then Allah azza wa jal tells him to strike the foot with this brand, from the Springwood gush forth, to wash himself and drink from that water. And through that Allah azza wa jal
cured him. And he was changed so much from his state of illness to his state of health, that when his wife came back in some generations, she saw him and she said, Excuse me, there's a man who's old and Ill have you seen him? Because she didn't recognize her own husband. That's how long it had been. That's how severely ill he was. And then he told her that I am your husband and Allah azza wa jal has cured me. And we still we restored his family to him. It was said that Allah brought them back to life for him. And some of the scholars said that Allah azza wa jal gave him his family back that he brought them back to life and other scholars said know that Allah azza wa jal then allowed
him to have more children and Allah restored his wealth for him. And that is why the prophets have said them said that are you about Islam was walking and while fell upon him from above, so he started to gather in his clothes. And Allah azza wa jal said, Are you have I not given you enough? And the Uberti certainly prayed and he said, Oh Allah, I can never have enough of your bounty, meaning whatever you bestow of me of your blessings, I will accept and take.
And I'll show chose therefore, that if some people illogical opens up for them, the treasures of the world gives them multiple 100 for you. This is a prophet of Allah saying, Oh Allah, I have all I'm always in need of your bounty and your annual blessings. So therefore, if someone Allah's will give to the moth gives to them the blessings of the dunya, so long as the people have Taqwa Eman and so on, then it is something which is permissible and doubled their number in this world and Allah made him rich and bestowed upon him a great deal of wealth, as a mercy from Us, to our slave, a you as he was patient and steadfast granted him reward by our mercy in this world and the Hereafter. And as a
reminder to people of understanding that this there is so that people of understanding might remember the story of you, and learn a lesson from it, and realize that whoever bears home with patients, Allah subhanaw taala will reward him in this world in the Hereafter, and will answer his supplication when he calls upon him. We said to him, and take a bundle of rushes in your hand and strike your wife wants with it, and do not break your oath. The commentator said when he was sick, he got angry with his wife, for some reason. As for that if Allah healed him, he was striker 100 times. But his wife was a righteous woman who treated him kindly. So when Allah He was him, he
showed mercy to her and to him. Therefore, He taught him to strike her once with a bundle of 100 reads, thus enabling him to fulfill his oath without harming her or being unjust towards her. And so on one occasion when he was ill, his wife who comes every single day, it has said in some situations that one day she was late, and the anger that you've already said, and when you can imagine living in isolation alone, this is the only person that comes on Monday, Tuesday for some other reason, one reason or another. So you took an oath by Allah, that if I become better, Allah kills me. I will strike you 100 times, took an oath by Allah, Allah azza wa jal said to you by the sun and fulfill
your oath, which shows to you how important also in this religion, if you swear by Allah's name, or in Allah's name, that you're going to do something you should do your utmost of affiliate so long as there is no harm in it. But Allah azza wa jal gave him a concession a different way, striker 100 times, meaning get 100 Small reads small, little, small, little soft branches and put them together and striker once with that, that's like striking 100 times because there are 100 reads within that one strike that he gave to her. And that's also a principle in our region, that if you make an oath, and then you find that there is something better than the oath that you made, then you should expect
the oath and do what is better. That is what the prophet Salam said. He said, I never take an oath by Allah, then find that something is more beloved to Allah than the author I made, except that I will expect that oath and do what is better, more pleasing to Allah azza wa jal.
Truly we found him namely, you have to be patient and steadfast. That is, we tested him with a great home and he bought with patience for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. A good and faithful slave who reached the highest levels of servitude to Allah at times of both ease and hardship will constantly turn to us. That is
He often turned to Allah to help him reach his spiritual and worldly goals and constantly remembered his Lord called upon him, loved him and showered and showed devotion to Him.

And indeed before us, they are among the chosen and truly, truly good. Remember our slaves who are sincere to us in worship, and speak highly of them. Ibrahim, Holly, a close friend of Allah, his son is helped and as grants of Jaco
men of endurance in worship, that is, they had great stamina in worshiping Allah subhanaw, Taala and deep insight, that is, they had deep insight into the religion of Allah. So he described them as possessing beneficial knowledge and doing a great deal of rich deep valley, we chose them by granting them distinct quality, that is a significant and very special quality which which was considering remembering the hereafter, we instill constant remembering of the hereafter in their hearts and cause them to strive for it at all times. sincerity towards Allah and remembering, remembering that he is always watching was something inherent in them, and we caused them to be a
reminder of the, of the rafter, so that they saw that by seeing them, people were reminded of it and learn from them. And they remember in the best terms, we can see them Allah's agenda and the Stories of the Prophets is focusing on different attributes that they had. So the story of snowman and wood is repentance story of a yoke is patience here Allah's rule says, that they will people will constantly remember the hereafter. So that is also from the attributes that are Muslims should have that they should constantly be reminding themselves of death and your multi AMA and the day of judgment and the standing before Allah azza wa jal
barely we chose them by granting them a distinct quality and indeed,

With cooler is smile, our ASR, whether you're careful, work Hello, I'm Mina.
And remember, it's now you and Elisa and we'll give each of them was among the truly good. That is remember those these prophets in the best of terms and speak highly of them, for each of them was among the elite whom ALLAH chose from among humankind, and he chose for them and helped them to attain the best of attitudes these manners attributes and characteristics.

indeed, this is our provision, which will never cease. This namely the mention of these elite prophets and their characteristics is a reminder in this Quran. Full of reminders of I remembering their attitude and manners, one of one may be reminded of and love to follow their beautiful attributes and one may be when one may become eager to find out about what ALLAH blessed them with Sublime characteristics and how Allah caused them to be remembered in the highest terms among people.
And one of the types of reminder is men
Assuming good people. Another type is mentioning the require of both good people and evil people. And Allah says, rarely the pious that is those who fear Allah, that those who fear their Lord by complying with his commands and heeding his prohibitions, both believing men and believing women will have a blissful journeys and that is a good end and place to return. Then Allah explains that further garden of perpetual about whose inhabitants would not wish for anything other than that, because they are so perfect, and their bliss is so complete, they will never leave them or be expelled from them, whose gates will be open to them. That is the case of their dwellings, animals
will be open for them, they will not need to open them themselves. Rather, they will be served and looked after. This is also indicative of perfect security. For in the gardens of perpetual abode, there is nothing that would require closing and locking of gates or doors. And so from the blessings of the people of Jannah this is the approach agenda. It's good to already open and open those and open gates is a sign of what? Sign off. Welcome. It's a sign of honor that someone opens the gates in anticipation for you waiting for your approach, as opposed to someone invites you and you go and the doors are locked. No one opens the door, he'll ringing up the right you're no one comes and
opens the door. So here Allah azza wa jal for the people of Ghana opens their doors for them. And so Allah Subhana Allah says molfetta, which is open but widely open, open to the full extent. Reclining there in adorn couches and seats, they will call for that is they will instruct their servants to bring abundant fruit and drink whatever their hearts may desire. And May they like their eyes. This indicative of perfectly bliss, perfect ease and reassurance and pleasure and perfect pleasure. And with them will be their wives from a hole in chaste women who restrained their glances and look only at their husbands, and their husbands will only look at them, because of the beauty that all will
And the love that each will have for the other, they will have no desire for any other companion and will not think of any replacement of equal age that is the same age, the best age of youth and the most beautiful and pleasurable. So the people agenda when they go in are all youth. And some of the scholars said they go under the age of 33 because it is considered to be the age where you reach the peak of your strength and your and your abilities. So they go into the age even those who died in this world. That's all people 7080 90 Allah azza wa jal will make them back at the peak of the youth so that they can enjoy gender to its fullest. And that is when the old woman came to the Prophet and
she said O Messenger of Allah will go into Jana. He said old people are not allowed to Jana.
Old people aren't allowed in gender. So she walked away crying. He called her back he said, What I mean is that when you enter into gender, you'll be young again. And so Allah Allah will make one of the people of Jana have an equal age. This is what you have promised, oh pious, ones who fear Allah for the day of reckoning as a reminder for your righteous deeds and
as a reward for you right? Indeed, this is our provision that we will bestow upon the people of paradise, which will never cease. That is it will never stop. Rather it is eternal and ongoing and will constantly increase that is not difficult for the Most Generous Lord, the most kind, most merciful, most
