A Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he was early he also he was seldom Lama eliminare million fauna. When fan of him I limped in I was in Iman autobill and Amin.

00:00:12 --> 00:00:33

So hamdulillah last time, we stopped at age 28. And I do recommend, by the way, right? That you would hold a must have as much as possible whether you are with us here or you are joining us from wherever you are, or watching this later a recording, it's always

00:00:34 --> 00:01:19

best to hold the most half because you'll be able to follow and you'll not drift away in the last origin and you'll be able to match what we're saying to what you're reading. So I think that is the most effective way of doing all of this. But if you prefer just to sit and listen, you could do that as well insha Allah but I think maximum benefit lies in holding the most half in your hand and following the is. So the last idea that we stopped that as we said is when we Allah azza wa jal says was built enough second Allah Dena you do not have bombilla the it will actually sit patiently with those who are calling Unto Allah azza wa jal and making dua to Allah she, early in the day and later

00:01:19 --> 00:01:34

a day, you will be doing our job seeking Allah's pleasure and Allah's face. And remember that we said that this was revealed, after some privileged Metcons the rich ones

00:01:36 --> 00:02:23

suggested to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, and they are now we're not Muslims, then that they should have a special gathering that dismisses the Muslims who are poor. So a kind of a sense suggesting a class and that they are belong to one that should not supposed or not supposed to mix with other classes, and that Allah azza wa jal rebukes them for that and he tells us Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam to always stay with those who are remembering Allah azza wa jal and not to take any glances beyond them. Right. And yeah, before I forget, before I move on to the next idea in sha Allah one thing that I wanted to add when we were talking about further tomography him Illa Mira

00:02:23 --> 00:02:36

Amba Hara, the etiquettes of arguments and discussions, if you remember when we said that Allah azza wa jal tells us Prophet alayhi salatu, salam to Cana only briefly

00:02:37 --> 00:03:09

argue about the number of the people of the book. Alright, number of the people of the cave, right only briefly discussed that. And we said why, okay, the topic is not that important. They have no knowledge, and we derived benefits. From all of that. One thing that I forgot to mention that you could add to the etiquettes of discussions or debates or arguments that also is relevant to that idea, and relevant to us is that they are quarrelsome.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:53

They like to argue. And so if you find that a person is prone to arguments, or even if you find that within yourself, realize it and don't engage in arguments with someone who's like that, because you are never going to win, because the nature of that person is that they simply want to argue for the sake of argument, they want to find fault in whatever you are saying. They will always pose hypotheticals, what if and what if not, nothing convinces them. So if you find a person who is quarrelsome by nature, state, what you need to state and then leave the argument, because there is no end to it. So the people of the book will be a category of people who love to argue not for the

00:03:53 --> 00:04:39

sake of the truth, because there are some people who argue to discover what the truth is. And there are some people who argue for what to win, or simply right, they have that as a an addiction, they have to argue about small irrelevant, unimportant matters. So is that is the person who's talking to you realize it and don't engage in an argument? That is fruitless. And if you find that you are a such a person, then what you're supposed to do is curb that tendency in you. So if something is not important, say to yourself, Why am I asking these questions? What's the benefit of all of this? What's the purpose of this argument if it's worth to continue? If there is no benefit in it, then

00:04:39 --> 00:05:00

you stop. So the more that you control your own impulse to argue and win and engage in discussions and explore issues, the more that you do this the more benefit you will find because Allah azza wa jal then, will reward you by taking you away from the unimportant into the important. Allah saves your time and save

00:05:00 --> 00:05:29

What's your mind and heart? Right? So that's one thing that occurred to me. They said let's not move before we assert that with Nila. So moving on now to Isaiah 29. Allah says here what would it help call me Robbie confirm and Chef alumi woman share affiliate for. So he, here he is speaking to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And he says Walpole and say to them, I'll help call me Rob become meaning this is the truth from your rub.

00:05:30 --> 00:06:14

This is the truth from Europe. So whoever wants to let them believe and whoever wants you wants to let them disbelief. So this idea comes after that idea that we just discussed with he tells his Prophet alayhi salatu salam stay with those who are making dua and are sincere. And in another words, stay away from the others don't listen to them and their requests, because they are the type of people whom Allah azza wa jal said about them, have fun knuckleball and decree now their hearts are heedless. They're not remembering Allah, they followed their desire and their affairs are a way are wasteful in loss. So he says, as if it's a reply to all of them, he says the truth that Allah

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

had given to me is very clear. This is it.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:30

So don't take try to take us into another path by saying dismiss them on bring those people know the truth has arrived. We'll call it hakomi Arabic, meaning this is the truth from Allah as well.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:50

And there's benefits here that if the prophets will always send them is telling them that and what follows is, this is the truth. So it's apparent, it's manifest enough, that if you wish, believe, if you don't wish, don't believe it means that it's clear enough. And there is no doubt about it.

00:06:51 --> 00:07:13

And that tells you a lot about the Quran, meaning that Allah azza wa jal has revealed sufficiently in the Quran, and sufficiently in the Sunnah, proves in evidence that anyone who wants the truth can find it. Right? Anyone who wants the truth, it will be available. So it's not mysterious, it's not lacking. That's why he tells them this is the truth.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:43

And the rest is up to you mean, that means what there is nothing missing. If there is something missing, they can come back and say, well, it's not clear. How can we believe or disbelieve? How are you giving us that option? Because we still don't understand is still it's lacking something. But when he says this is it, it means the only part I mean that what's left is for you to believe or disbelieve not for the truth to be more manifest or to be clear.

00:07:45 --> 00:08:33

And so we understand from this right and understand that if something is important, Allah azza wa jal will make it very apparent, so that no one will be confused about it. Right? And the more important it is, the more evidence it will have until there is no doubt about it. So they say for instance, everybody needs to eat. So hey, this is a necessity. So Allah azza wa jal gives everybody the opportunity to eat, right? Everybody needs to drink otherwise they don't survive. So Allah azza wa jal makes that number available to everybody. If not what happens, people die. So they need knowledge of the truth. And what's the truth here except Allah azza wa jal is one, and that he

00:08:33 --> 00:09:19

should be worshipped alone. And Muhammad Ali Salatu Salam is his messenger and there is the last day and this is the Haram and this is the halal, so that knowledge is more needed and more vital than eating and drinking. Because eating and drinking is the life of what the body, but this knowledge is the life of the soul and which one is more important. The soul definitely because the body, no matter how much you feed and take care of it will die. But the soul lives on this. And its survival in the next life is based on this knowledge. So we need more of this knowledge than eating and drinking. So if eating and drinking is available to everybody in then this knowledge should be

00:09:19 --> 00:09:59

available to everybody in terms that it's clarity is there, there's no confusion about it. Now a person could be confused because they haven't read. They don't understand. They did not investigate that's possible. They listen to somebody else but not Allah or the Prophet possible. But if they go directly to the Quran, and they understand it directly to the Sunnah and understand it, then there will be no confusion about the big issues. I mean, we're not talking about here whether you know, wiping over the socks or not or whether it's small, small, like minor issues. We're not talking about that. Talking about the big major issue

00:10:00 --> 00:10:42

hues of Islam there'll be no confusion about it. So that's why it is clear. You will see it in the book of Allah you will see it in the universe around you, that testifies to the truth of the Oneness of Allah azza wa jal and the supremacy of Allah. And the to the truth of Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam. So both the book that Allah revealed, and what they call the book of the universe, the creation testifies also to what Allah has revealed. So it is very clear. And so if it's clear, as if he is giving to the Prophet salallahu Salam, there is no doubt about it. So you should not have any doubts about it. And you should present it confident in what it has. And if you like kind of

00:10:42 --> 00:11:01

confidence, like some of it, study more, until you truly believe that as we said, that next part that follows whoever once loved them believe in whoever once loved them disbelief. This is not permission from Allah azza wa jal, this is what this is a threat.

00:11:02 --> 00:11:11

This is a threat, evidence of that what what follows in the volley Mina nada, we have prepared for the transgressors, a fire.

00:11:12 --> 00:11:30

Right? So he says, Whoever wants to believe, let them and whoever wants to disbelieve, let them we have prepared for the transgressors, a fire. So this is not saying and don't understand it as Allah allowing people to believe in disbelieve. In a sense, Allah allowed it because he gave everybody a choice.

00:11:32 --> 00:12:08

Any you don't get killed immediately if the disbelief Allah tells you, if you want to disbelieve, in a sense, he lets you live. And he sustains you. And you continue to live for many, many years until one soul departs of this life. So that in essence, Allah giving people an option, that's the choice. But this idea is not about permission. It's not about options. Right? It's like somebody who is saying, right, who's carrying a rifle, cross into my property, and I'll shoot you.

00:12:10 --> 00:12:17

If you want cross into my property, and you will find that my gun is waiting for you. He's not giving you permission.

00:12:18 --> 00:13:03

If you want cross into my property is that permission? No, this is a threat. Because if you want to dare and come but see what is waiting for you, because that's exactly what are Allah azza wa jal is saying? That is if you want to believe believe after this has been made clear, if you want to believe believe, if you want to disbelieve, go ahead, but see what is waiting in Athens now we have prepared for a volley mean, those who are guilty of shitake and this disobeying Allah azza wa jal, Nowra, a fire a health of the hem Surah Dooku Ha, it is surrounded by barriers and fences, meaning that they can't escape it, there is a fire and it is surrounded by a surah duck Surah that is what

00:13:03 --> 00:13:22

you would put around a tent, a fence that nobody can come in, and no one can leave, meaning that they are trapped in it. Right, that they are trapped in it, they cannot escape. And so Subhan Allah in this life, they had the option,

00:13:23 --> 00:13:43

the option of to do right or to do wrong option or to believe or not to believe, but if you misuse that option, when the day of judgment what happens you lose all options. There is no other place except jahannam. And you get to drink and eat what is given to you were as the people of Jannah

00:13:44 --> 00:14:24

who had limited their own options because of Allah azza wa jal get all the options in Jannah they get to go whatever they want. They got vast lands, palaces, they eat what they want, they just wish for it and it comes they drink what they want, they wish for it and that comes they come and go as they please. So they have unlimited options in a sense, unlimited options within what Allah has ordained in the earth healer in Ghana because they've limited themselves here. And the opposite is true for the people of hellfire. And Allah He continues to tell you about their punishment. So they are trapped.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:41

And he says what he is still he through you are through if they ask for help, they'll be helped soloth is asking for help if they ask for help. They will be helped be matched with water can move li like boiling oil

00:14:42 --> 00:14:55

Yes, we'll we'll do it cooks their faces, meaning that they eat such food like as a comb and what have you. And it will be so intensely painful that they need something to drink.

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

So Hicks they're asking for help what yesterday through

00:15:00 --> 00:15:50

If Allah says they will be helped, but what type of help will come to them, which is no help at all. It is no help at all. Man, it's water. They say kill moodily. So ultimately they say it's like malted copper, or like oil. Anybody who has oil right at the bottom of the oil, if you notice that oil tends to be murky and dark, right? So it is that oil that is thick, black or darkened. And it is so hot that when it just comes close to them for them to drink it, it cooks their faces this before they drink it. So to say if that's the case, what does it do to their bodies when they drink it, and they have to drink it because they're agonizing over what they ate. So what they eat is tormenting,

00:15:50 --> 00:16:36

and what they drink is tormenting. So Allah says, That's what is waiting for people, after the manifest truth is rejected. And they oppose it. Not only do they reject it, but they oppose it, and they fight it. And they fight the believers, and they mocked them, and they killed them. And all of that is is what waits for them is this to be trapped in a place like this? Where it's help, is as bad as this. That's the help that they're offered. Right? It's a shareable was at Mirtha. He says, what a worst drink it is, what a terrible drink it is, and what a terrible place of comfort. So the motif up the meaning of North Africa is a place of comfort. So he says, that be their place of

00:16:36 --> 00:16:43

comfort, and it's a terrible place of comfort, because it's not or it does not provide comfort at all.

00:16:44 --> 00:17:29

So of course, right some everybody wants comfort. And it's the people of Ghana, where Allah will now speak about them. And you see, well Hassan at North Africa, that is the true place of comfort. But Allah wants now to contrast and compare Jahannam to Jana. So Johanna has the worst place of comfort. Now, Allah azza wa jal will move to what compare the people of Jahannam to the people of Ghana, the believers to the disbelievers. And Allah often does that in the Quran, when he mentions one talks about the other, so that you know, right, what both are and what both and know what leads to both and what you will get, once you walk this path or the other path. So this is what is the going to

00:17:29 --> 00:18:15

happen with the disbelievers. Now what's going to happen to the believers he says, in the medina Armand Aya foodie, in the Latina ama know what I mean, who saw the hat in Milan will do a gentleman escena amarilla. It says, In Alladhina amanu, those who have Iman and they did good deeds, we do not waste the reward of those who committed SN and their deeds have reached SN and their deeds, meaning if they had level of Essen in their deeds, their deeds are good and they are accepted. We do not waste for them a single thing that they've done, not even the smallest of things that they've done, gets wasted or ignored or neglected. So in the livina almond whammy the Saudi had because of their

00:18:15 --> 00:18:18

Ehsaan they get rewarded by Allah azza wa jal.

00:18:20 --> 00:19:01

So what is there isn't there Sn is to do it, for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, and not for anybody else, to do it upon the revealed guidance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam because if you miss one of those two things, an action will not be considered righteous. If you don't do it for Allah azza wa jal How could that be righteous? Or if you do it for the sake of Allah, but according to your own win and understanding not in the way of Allah's revelation, then how could that be action be considered and accepted, righteous action that be labeled isn't?

00:19:02 --> 00:19:18

So it's an old Iman, if they do this, Allah will preserve every single small and big thing that they do. Allah eco home Janna to Adam, they will have now Jana to Adam, gardens of stay.

00:19:19 --> 00:20:00

The Janna of stay, meaning that they will stay in it forever. Tend to remain dirty him will enhance rivers run beside them or beneath them under their palaces under the thrones, rivers running to the right and to the left. So Allah azza wa jal here is painting a picture of the beauty of Jana. So imagine sitting and around you, you could feel and you could hear rivers running and imagine how much they feed the plants and the trees around Jana. And that river is not like the river of the dunya. It's a river in Jannah. So just imagine

00:20:00 --> 00:20:03

In the sound imagine the beauty imagine the smell

00:20:05 --> 00:20:24

and now their own beauty This is the beauty that surrounds them their own beauty you Hello Nephi Hammond so we have them in the hub. They will be adorned in them with bracelets made of gold. Meaning what men were talking about men are only woman women have this adornment in the dunya and in the earth here,

00:20:25 --> 00:21:23

but not for men, right? So men don't wear gold. But in the air Hello here, Allah azza wa jal says that they will have bracelets of gold. They will have jewelry they'll have beauty that is made of gold while Asuna Thea been hauled raw, and they will wear green garments have green clothes means Sundews what is step rock from silk? fine silk and fix silk so Sundews is fine, Phil. Usually that is the interior clothing. Right? There is stuff Brock is thick silk usually that covers this windows that are thin silk Muteki interfere Allara ik the reclining on a recap on the erotic Rica is a couch or a bed that has a canopy on top. Right? If you don't know what that looks like, right, if you've

00:21:23 --> 00:21:29

been to a humid tropical country, and you've seen a mosquito net,

00:21:30 --> 00:22:18

right are a 10 cover the bed. Right so you could sleep. So that's like a canopy something that covers it. Right? But not for mosquitoes, right? So think about it, something that adorns that couch or adorns that bed and they're sitting and reclining. So it's a comfortable couch bed. And they have these these coverings on top and they're reclining. Alright, so the picture that is being painted is what have extreme comfort, and luxury and happiness. Contrast that with the opposite. They're they're being tormented one after the other one after the other. And these here are sitting like kings are sitting like kings. And contrast that also with their situation in this life. Because in

00:22:18 --> 00:22:51

this life, if you just match this or connected to the ideas that we were just talking about, in this life, they were poor and people were complaining, the disbelievers are complaining about them. They are too poor, they are too shabby, they are too smelly, they are beneath us. So they didn't have much and the disbelievers had had it all. So we are rich, and they are poor, see how this switches and changes in the next life. So these four Muslims and believers because they were true to Islam, and they were sincere they were, they are sitting like kings

00:22:52 --> 00:23:13

better than whatever the disbelievers had, because this is forever. And they have these bracelets of goals. Exactly. This is what kings in this world will do. When a person has so much he will sit he'll recline he will eat and he'll be adorned with jewelry. So that is the luxury of the next slide preserved for the believers.

00:23:15 --> 00:23:32

And I will person may ask, you say well, why talk about this? A while you mentioned it? I've never really thought about or had the need to have gold bracelets or necklaces or what have you? Is it maybe you did not. But there are some

00:23:33 --> 00:24:17

Muslims who are poor, who go through what these people have gone through disbelievers who put them down, or they look at the rich and famous and they you wish for what they have. So what is the thing that is going to come for their hearts and console them? That whatever you see, and that you want, Allah will give you in Jannah and much more much better than what is impressing you in this life. So the body needs. The body needs the soul longs for, well, they get to eat this and I don't they get to drive this and they don't they get to dress like this and I can't. When am I going to get all of this slide. Sometimes you see this? Sometimes it's your spouse who tells you this sometimes it's

00:24:17 --> 00:24:54

your child who tells you this. Sometimes it's your nurse who tells you this when am I gonna get some of this? I'm always struggling. I'm always striving I'm always you know, waiting for things to come and they never come when will they come? When will I have a house when I'll own this. So your nuff starts fighting with you. So Allah understands the weakness of each nurse and it tells you he tells you for that I am going to give you this and he names it. I'm going to give you this and this and this so that you'd be comforted. And you can imagine yourself if you wish reclining imagine yourself being adorned. Imagine yourself with these clothes so that the self the body can say there is going

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

to come a time when I will have all of this and does it need to be here and it doesn't

00:25:00 --> 00:25:05

needs to be now. But there is definitely a promise from Allah azza wa jal you give me this, I'll give you that.

00:25:07 --> 00:25:10

And if you believe it'd be as if you already had bought your ticket,

00:25:11 --> 00:25:57

right? You know, like, if you already had bought your ticket to travel, you're just counting the days till the time comes. Okay? You're not anxious anymore over when will I travel? You bought it? So if you actually do these things, it'd be as if you bought your ticket, you just waiting Bismillah xojo We know that we don't have actual guarantees, right? But you hope and the more that you do, the more that you hope. So this is why Allah azza wa jal talks about it. Okay. Net and Mithila boo, what a great reward it is. What has Sunette more difficult and what a wonderful place of comfort? It is. And it's truly the place of comfort. See, Jahannam isn't, but Jana is.

00:25:59 --> 00:26:46

So we said here, of course, that gold and silk is haram for males, but that will be allowed on in Jannah. For both males, I mean, definitely females but also for males. And the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said about it, about silk that if you wear it in the dunya, you will not get to wear it in the era, right? And again, don't kind of rationally fight and say how is it that that's suitable then but it's not suitable now because now is different than them. And the silk then is different than the silk now. And Allah wants you to not wear it now. Then you simply submit to Allah azza wa jal and then consider, we're talking about natural silk here, right? Consider, is it really worth

00:26:46 --> 00:27:20

losing silk? In Ghana, for you to wear it here? Is it is it worth losing, wearing gold in Ghana to wear it here? So even if you see others doing that, even if they look fine, even if you know that is attractive, but if you're male, Allah azza wa jal says, haram, Allah God Almighty, this is haram for the males of the Ummah, Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam. And there's some reasoning behind it. One, the one thing that they do, if you put on silk and gold is that they soften you.

00:27:21 --> 00:28:01

Okay? And you start adopting feminine qualities because of them, they soften you. That's one thing that they do not the only thing. It's not a stated wisdom, but this is a wisdom that's some of the other men have derived so that nobody comes and says no, now me I'm saying this is one possible reason that they soften a population and males are supposed to be tougher, and that this is supposed to be up for responsibility. So that's why Allah azza wa jal really distinguishes between the qualities that a male should have and the qualities that females should have, and they should never look alike, should never look alike.

00:28:02 --> 00:28:47

Another thing in sha Allah to just comment on before we leave this idea, when he says while persona Thea been Hydra, they will be wearing green clothes and garments. So they said this is a favorite color on that in Jana, because of the beauty of that color itself. It's very attractive. Now there is a Hadith that some of the halal M have considered to be a Hasson that it says that one of the best colors that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam loved is the color green. Okay, is the color green. And it sort of makes sense. Because in one of the generations and Amin, it's these individual narrations are weak, but he pulled them together, and it could likely be Hessen, that some of the

00:28:47 --> 00:29:02

tambourine or some of the Sahaba went out. And they looked at the green light outside the city. And they said Bella Donna, we have heard that green is one of the favorite colors of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and that is kind of reasonable.

00:29:03 --> 00:29:36

Because anyone who's growing and when in a desert when you see green, it becomes very attractive. But not only that, even if you growing in a lush green land, the more green that you see, the more relaxed you are. So it's just a favorite color to have. So, here it's mentioned it's one of the colors one of the colors, but Allah highlighted here of Jannah it's one of the thing colors that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam loved, but keep in mind that it's not a religious color.

00:29:37 --> 00:29:59

Okay, it's not a religious color, meaning we never hear of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam strictly wearing green as to designate that as an Islamic color? Or the Sahaba wearing green specifically? Okay, or the Tabea en el coronel MUFA. Bella the best of generations did not adopt a particular color and say this is our color

00:30:00 --> 00:30:23

or as people say, green is the color of Islam. Okay, there is no one particular color. It's later on right when you I don't know when it starts exactly but with the Abbasids and what have you, they start adopting colors to reflect who they are. Right? But In Islam there is no specific color of ethnic or religious or what have you, right?

00:30:26 --> 00:30:30

Now, Allah azza wa jal goes on to give us an example,

00:30:31 --> 00:30:32

while the Riblah home Mithila

00:30:33 --> 00:31:20

give them an example. And that example will continue to comment on the things that we talked about. So, give them an example, will there be a home Mithila or giulini? Two men Janelia hottie Hema Ginetta you name in Anna vino have no home I've been ugly Raja nabina Homosassa. So we gave one of them. Jana Taney, two gardens have enough of grapes. We'll have a for Now who am I be Nicola, we surrounded them with palm trees, or Jana Bina Houma Zara, and we put crops and plants in between. So Allah here is presenting an example to humanity of something. And the examples of the Quran, they could be of something that actually happened, or of a hypothetical, you could have this and you

00:31:20 --> 00:31:38

could have that, but this is a real example of people who actually lived and experienced all the things that Allah said about them. So he says, give them that example. Now, why give examples? Because you will see resemblance between what you hear and your life.

00:31:39 --> 00:31:52

Right, your reality will reflect this, and this will reflect your reality. And if this is more expansive than your own reality, it will teach you of what's going to happen in the future, meaning this is a pattern.

00:31:53 --> 00:32:32

All right, believe in Allah, this what happens disbelieve in Allah, this is what happens. This is an example. So if you're still in the middle of that example, you haven't reached the end, it will anticipate what's going to happen and will predict it, because it's a pattern that keeps repeating over and over. So when he says, give them this example, so that they could learn from it because what happened to them is going to repeat. So give them here the example of two men. Allah says Janelia had the HEMA we gave one of them. So here you feel it from the beginning that he was gifted this we gave it Allah could have said one of them had is no we gave

00:32:33 --> 00:32:51

okay to understand that everything that you have, has to come from Allah azza wa jal. But then you forget, when you have it, you forget, because you notice on what you have, rather than the giver. So as if is this to say, remember where it came from? The origin

00:32:52 --> 00:32:57

of it, don't be stuck, looking at the material and the immediate

00:32:58 --> 00:33:24

material and immediate I have money, where did that come from? Or I have talent, or I have power, but look, a step before it or a step before that, as the believer will do. Look at step before this. And tell me where that came from. So we gave one of them. Okay. And that is the operative word here because if both of them had it, he can be proud.

00:33:25 --> 00:34:05

Right? He can be proud. When do you become proud when you see that you have what others don't? That's what he will say. Right? So what did he have to gardens, and the law student said he had grapes in them. And they were surrounded with palm trees. And he had a lot of plant life and a lot of crops in them. How did he manage? Okay. Oh, wait. I'm getting ahead of myself. Kill tell Jana Taney. So Elijah continues this is a 33 so he describes these gardens killed tell Jenna thenI added Aquila. Both of they've got these gardens, produce their fruits.

00:34:07 --> 00:34:14

Whatever they had, they produced it while I'm totally minutia and did not hold a single thing back.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:59

So full capacity. Danny, these two gardens are so fertile, so big, that they gave everything and did not hold anything back. This this is their gun. That in a sense, right? If they were to have volume, and justice means that they will keep something back here. No, they gave everything these two these two lands. You need to ask yourself how could they do that and continue to do this Allah says will fit Jonah Hill Allah Who Manohar Nowra as we caused the river to gush and run through them. Which means that watering these lands was easy. He didn't have to strive and go and fail.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:29

Ah water and traveled back. No, he had a river in the middle, watering this side and watering this site. Alright, so imagine the name of Allah azza wa jal, meaning that these lands continue to give full every year. And they are bountiful. And they are generous. And a river easily just flows, he just needs to kind of create streams, and then it will just water everything. And then he says, What can Allah Who thermal,

00:35:30 --> 00:35:38

and he had thermal and thermal can be interpreted as plenty of fruits, or a lot of money.

00:35:39 --> 00:35:46

Right. And both interpretation kinda like lead to each other. Because if he had a lot of fruits, he has a lot of money. So he was rich.

00:35:47 --> 00:35:49

Now we don't hear anything about the other men.

00:35:50 --> 00:36:04

So that tells us that he didn't have any of that. So this guy had had it all. The other guy was modest of modest means and modest life. We have no idea about what he had. But this is what this man had.

00:36:06 --> 00:36:21

What can Allahu thumbor for valid is so heavy. Now who's speaking? Okay, the one who's rich, the rich man. So holily Sahibi, he says to his companion, well, who are you however, as they are exchanging

00:36:22 --> 00:36:41

as they conversing with each other, as they converse, right? Because we understand that it's his companion. So one of those days as they talk to each other, he felt the urge to tell him what an extra Roman Comala Asuna for I have more money than you. And I have more people around me than you.

00:36:42 --> 00:36:44

So in a sense, what is he saying?

00:36:45 --> 00:37:19

I am better than you. I'm better than you. Right? So it had to come out, because that's what he's feeling. That's what he had come to. That's what he believes I'm better than you. Why are you better than me? He says, because of two things, I have more money. So tells you that he's rich, right? Well, can Allah with Lamar, he has a lot of money. And when Allah says we can allow thermal means a whole lot of money. That's what it means. What can Allah with tomorrow next year, all right, a whole lot of money he had. So a, I have a lot of money.

00:37:20 --> 00:37:34

And then I have more enough for nothing is what they say people who can assist, strong that strength. So this could be family could be tribe, and specifically they say, male children,

00:37:36 --> 00:37:52

male children, that is people when he calls on come and help me come and assist me come and defend me, he'll have a lot of people come to his side, to the right and to the left. And that makes you feel powerful. But I have people that if I call on,

00:37:53 --> 00:37:59

they will come and assist whether they are children, and that's most likely because I would the other man will say

00:38:00 --> 00:38:08

or it's generally family. So I have support, physical support, so I'm strong and I am rich.

00:38:09 --> 00:38:17

And then he continues and he says what the Hello Ginetta. Who will who will volume only enough say this If 35 Allah says and he enters his Jana?

00:38:19 --> 00:38:24

Well, whoever the model enough see, and he has wronged himself committing injustice against himself.

00:38:26 --> 00:39:04

What is this injustice? Is this his disbelief? Is his arrogance, ingratitude all of that combined? How he's dealing with these numbers, how he's talking to his companion now he thinks that that makes him better? Because this is all the foundation that is going to lead him to disbelieve in Allah azza wa jal. So he is has wronged himself because of the money. And he says, or there might have been no interview the Had he ever done. It says I don't think that this will ever be destroyed, will ever have an end to it will ever perish. Ma Allah No. And to be the head of the Avada

00:39:06 --> 00:39:11

and then he says warmer oven Russa Takashima it says and I don't think the day of judgment will come

00:39:12 --> 00:39:37

will eroded to eat or be and if I were to return to Allah azza wa jal the IG then nothing Rahman Herman caliber if I were to return to Allah azza wa jal meaning if there's hypothetically a day of judgment, I'll find something better with him than what I have now. Hypothetically, if I were to, but I don't, but if that's what he's saying, Now someone you know, could say to himself, yeah, how

00:39:38 --> 00:39:43

foolish Could you be that you could look at your garden and believe that this will never perish?

00:39:44 --> 00:39:55

If this will never end, the having you looked at the world around you, don't you know that everything ends How could it be that you could be so intoxicated with power and with money,

00:39:56 --> 00:40:00

but that is what happens to humans. That is it.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:47

In the midst of it, and it's it is an intoxication. It's a drug, that you could be so strong, and we look at nations today, so strong that we will never be weak. Our army is so strong, we will never be defeated. So don't they say this never be diff No, no army on Earth can defeat us. No other civilization can overtake us. No other, you know, this, and that can defeat us. So people can be so intoxicated on their own lies, that they actually believe that they will live forever, or their strength will last forever. So that is a misguided blind belief that humans have, we are so strong, we are so rich, we'll always be like that.

00:40:48 --> 00:41:29

And any, any intelligent person will say, Okay, where are your heads? Don't you see empires before? You? Don't see us? You see rich nations before you who thought the same thing as you do? Don't you see if we're just talking about individuals? Don't you see famous people who rise to fame and then decline? People who gain a lot of money and then they lose it. People who grow strong and they lose their strength, people who gain popularity and people start to hate them? Don't you see the cycle happening over and over and over? How could you expect that this is going to take place? But again, it's a blindness and disbelief is blindness. Because if you if you have, if you can deny Allah

00:41:29 --> 00:41:58

zodion Meaning he does not exist, then that's blindness. There is no day of judgment, that's blindness. So if you can be blind with these big things, no one is going to blame you if you're blind with the minor things because you're completely blind. So that's what he said, that I don't even think that the day of judgment is going to be there. It's going to come and he thinks that he is favored. That he is a favored one of Allah has voted. By the way he did not deny Allah right.

00:41:59 --> 00:42:20

He did not deny Allah He still believes in Allah azza wa jal, but he says, no day of judgment. And this is going to be forever. And that's why he says there is no day of judgment, but I am privileged. Allah loves me that if I were to go and be resurrected, I'll find something better than this Jana with Allah azza wa jal because he loves me.

00:42:21 --> 00:42:28

And again, that is this erroneous belief that people have even some of us is that when Allah gives us the dunya he's happy with us.

00:42:29 --> 00:43:12

All right. It's not a test Allah you said that I got a job well, hamdulillah and I got employed Allah is happy with me. Oh, I did not did not get a job so far. Why is it Allah hates me? That's the reaction. Right? So Masha, Allah when I invested well, Allah must be really happy with me. I invested a lot a lot of money, Allah must be so angry with me, what did I do? Did I do something bad? Or should I ask for forgiveness? So we take this as a test that if I am favored in the dunya, meaning favors of Allah azza wa jal, and if my luck in the dunya is not really strong, that Allah azza wa jal somehow, for whatever reason he eats me, and we have to disentangle the two. Because

00:43:12 --> 00:43:20

this is telling you disentangle the two to be favored in the dunya does not mean anything with Allah azza wa jal, and to be,

00:43:22 --> 00:44:07

in a sense, unfortunate in the dunya, does not mean anything with Allah azza wa jal, this is just simply a test for both. So the other one, the believer is being tested. Right? He is now being tested, because now he sees that this person who has all that money, who has all these children who has all this power, and Allah gave him a lot more than what he gave me, and he disbelieves and I am a believer, a weak, humble believer and what do I have? That is the test? And that is where Allah azza wa jal wants to see. Do you still hold on to the truth and or do you start complaining and saying, see what the world is like? See how unfair it is? See how you know Allah gave him everything

00:44:07 --> 00:44:49

and it gave me nothing. I'm the one who prays and fasts and you stays away from the Haram and this is the way that I'm treated. And this guy who you know, you're a does this and that and Allah zoodle keeps giving him more and more and more, blessing him with children, blessing him with more children with more land with more fruits. Isn't this a fitna? If you look at it that way, it's a terrible fitna. It's a really strong fitna. But then you have to what take refuge in Your Eman and the knowledge that you find in the Quran. That this is what temporary, it does not last. And on the outside it looks like something but on the inside. It's nothing. It's like a bubble. So that's why

00:44:49 --> 00:44:58

Allah brought this example and again connected to the wealthy disbelievers condemning and looking down on the poor believers. Right

00:44:59 --> 00:44:59


00:45:00 --> 00:45:23

The whole Sahiba who Oh, you have it or now his companion is friend, stalking back responding, had a catheter Biller, the Halacha mentor up from me not faithful muscle worker Judah. It says did you disbelieve in the One who created you from dust, and then from a sperm? And then he turned you into a complete fool man.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:26

And what is he doing here?

00:45:28 --> 00:46:07

He is bringing him proof that the one who created him from that can return them into later on back to life and resurrect him and reminding him of his weakness and his origins. So it's doing what one that as Allah created you, he can resurrect you. So that is easy. The other thing is that remember your own weakness. Where did you come from? So he's taking him all the way to Adam Alayhis Salam, you came from Adam and Adam came from dust. Or if he's not taking him all the way to add them, that is you are from dust, meaning whatever you

00:46:08 --> 00:46:24

eat, comes from the land, and the land is dust, the plant and the animals right feed on that it comes from this. So Allah created you, or sustains you from these small humble things. And that's how you continue to live. And also a sperm

00:46:26 --> 00:46:34

that you can see with your naked eye. This is how small and insignificant you were. But then from that so worker,

00:46:35 --> 00:47:14

right? He perfected you, as a man as a human. So worker, a doula complete you have these limbs, these eyes these ears, just look at yourself and the gift that Allah had given you. One after the other if you just look at yourself so whack radula right? And is this the thanks from these insignificant beginnings until what you are today? You want to deny your rob your Rob who did all of that for you? Let Kyna 38 lakh kina pu Allahu Allah be but for me, I'll not do this. Who Allah Hora be Allah is my Rob

00:47:15 --> 00:47:28

wala who should not be a hoarder, I will not associate anyone with my Arab. Meaning if you want to do this, go ahead and do it. But as for me, I will not do that. Well it will surely be harder.

00:47:29 --> 00:47:52

And then he gives him advice. While Ola is the helter genetica culture, masha Allah hula Quwata illa biLlah and why not? When you enter you Jana, you say Masha Allah, La Quwata illa biLlah meaning whatever Allah wills is happening, whatever Allah wills and he wants is what's happened.

00:47:53 --> 00:48:02

La Quwata illa biLlah there is no power except with Allah azza wa jal meaning surrender to Allah when you see your Janna don't attribute this to you

00:48:03 --> 00:48:16

and your power and your skills and know how don't attribute to yourself but rather when you enter and you see something that you admire, say Masha Allah, this is the will of Allah that made it so

00:48:17 --> 00:48:23

this exactly what it means elevate the will of Allah meet this. I have no power.

00:48:25 --> 00:49:05

No, I have no power. And that word La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said that this is a Ken's a treasure from the treasures of paradise of Jana says from revealed from underneath the Throne of Allah azza wa jal, and that when a person says this, Allah azza wa jal will say a slimmer Abdi was the slum. My servant has surrendered to me. Because you nounce when you say this La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah I have no power or power is with Allah azza wa jal, I can't change a thing. Allah is the only one who can change. So you surrender completely to Allah azza wa jal, right.

00:49:06 --> 00:49:45

And if you are in need of help, by the way, you say that something is heavy, and you want to carry it something is difficult and you want to push through it. And you don't think and you don't believe that you have the energy to do it. Use the whole hour La Quwata illa biLlah you anticipate a difficulty you don't know how to deal with it. You say hola, hola, La Quwata illa biLlah and you also use it as this righteous man has suggested. If you're gonna admire yourself and what you've done, you say hola, hola, La Quwata illa biLlah are exactly what he said. Masha Allah Who La Quwata illa biLlah meaning it's not me. Allah made it made it all

00:49:46 --> 00:50:00

right, it's not me. I did not do a thing even though you know that you've done something. But if Allah did not want it, it wouldn't have happened. So let your effort on its own produces nothing

00:50:01 --> 00:50:24

Allah azza wa jal is the one who produces and allows things to happen. So he says, why not? Say this when you enter Jannah, rather than your pride, refer it back to Allah azza wa jal and he said, is continuing, I have 39 in Torani enter Alka lemon Kamala Wauwatosa if you see that I have less money and children than you

00:50:25 --> 00:51:11

want to do, right? That's why we say that that man was boasting about having children, because he says if you say because that's what he was boasting about, I have more what money and then therefore I have more people. So what type of people was he proud of? Because this man explains it. He says if you see that, you have more money and more children than me or I have less children and less money than you. Then he says what? Okay, facile B, this is number 40. If you see that if you believe that for us are A B, I hope from my job that he would give me a UT any higher domain genetic that will give me something better than your Jana or you will see that it has been a minister and it will send

00:51:11 --> 00:51:28

on the agenda on your Jana husband, Amina sama a punishment from this guy. Photos be Hustler, Aiden Zelicah. And it will become or turn into something that is flat and empty and slippery. Right? Meaning nothing on it.

00:51:29 --> 00:51:38

Oh used to be hammer well hora, or that its water will sink deep into the ground fell under study Allahu taala, but you will not be able to reach it.

00:51:39 --> 00:52:08

So this man, this righteous man was either here, three possibilities either was making do I was hoping for this or is predicting it. Right? He's either making dua here, or wishing it or simply predicting. Right? So he says for us all to be I hope from Allah azza wa jal that he will give me better than your Jana. Okay, that is Allahu Allah in the era.

00:52:09 --> 00:52:56

That is, if you're so proud of what you have, and what you see, my hope is that Allah will give me something better than your Jana. Right? And why did we say the era more than the dunya? Because your focus should be on that. Now waiting and hoping, When will I get something better in the dunya that can beat that person? Because this mean ever happened? And if that's the case, you will always be in agony of When Will this happen? I need to be richer. So but what if it doesn't happen, but if in the akhira, then your focus will be on the earth era. So kind of start thinking like that. If you see something, and it kind of grabs your heart, a car, a house, attention, fame, whatever, and you feel

00:52:56 --> 00:53:36

like you want it. And you know that you don't want to compete for this in the dunya save as our Obeah ut anything Rahman genetic, I hope Allah will give me something better than that. In the archaea. And in the earth era, anything from the Mercy of Allah is better than what we have in the dunya. So wish from Allah azza wa jal to give you in the Fira. So fast sorbet, Eugenia Yarraman genetic. So as we said, now and present upon it punishment from the sky, as we said, this could be a prediction of his meaning. I expect this to happen. If it's a prediction, how does he know? Because he's expecting that that is how Allah azza wa jal is going to repay that person's ingratitude and

00:53:36 --> 00:53:37


00:53:39 --> 00:53:53

That is, this is how you met Allah azza wa jal, this is how you thanking Allah than Allah who will send a punishment upon you, because he did not take care of that name. So that's a prediction, or hope and do

00:53:54 --> 00:54:01

though a person may say to you, is it okay for him to make such a dua against that person? For him to lose all of his money?

00:54:02 --> 00:54:08

We say yes. So why is that? Because, okay, what did that money cause

00:54:10 --> 00:54:35

arrogance and disbelief. So, if there is no other way to fix you, except to take all that away from you, and either it's to punish you or to remedy you, right, then it's better that you'd be punished here. And now that Allah will take the cause of that cancer that had caused that had caused all of this disease, take it away from you, so that you'd be humbled. So losing it is good for you.

00:54:36 --> 00:54:59

And so loss here is good at times. As gain a times is good. It's like when you gain from the dunya we're happiest. You don't realize that loss, losing the dunya at times is necessary. Because if you don't lose it, you're not going to stop loving it. Right? If you keep eating all the food that you like, you'll be addicted to it. That's the food that I need.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:15

Over time, but if you have to stop, then you will be independent of it. So if Allah keeps feeding you that dunya, it will kill you. He has to it, take some of it away. So he can give you everything, and you will wish for everything.

00:55:16 --> 00:55:34

Right, you will wish for all the Dounia. When you look at people, you're looking at what everybody has, and you want what everybody has. And you know that that is not realistic. I want to be as fast as him and as strong as him and as famous as him and his riches him and he know that there is no one person in the world that has all of that.

00:55:36 --> 00:56:07

Everybody likes something, everybody is insecure about something, everybody must lose something. So Allah will take in order to give, so we have to lose some of the dunya so here, yes, he if he had made dua, if this was dua against him, it was a legitimate dua against the person who disbelieved and he wanted him to lose all of that. So he does not continue with that disbelief. And so, at times possessing the dunya is not a good thing. And for that man, it was not a good thing. So he said,

00:56:08 --> 00:56:22

Allah azza wa jal May Allah send upon it the punishment from the sky, that will leave it barren and empty or you will lose all your water and you will not be able to water it and it will all die out here or this or that. So Allah azza wa jal, this is an area

00:56:23 --> 00:56:26

42 Hot Water Heater B 30.

00:56:27 --> 00:56:34

It says literally, it says and his fruits were surrounded or his garden was surrounded, and that is a

00:56:35 --> 00:56:44

an expression that means it was destroyed completely. Just like we knew say the enemy surrounded them completely circled them.

00:56:45 --> 00:57:24

The enemy circled them if an enemy circles a people, people inside candidate can escape. So when Allah says the it was circled, it means all of it was destroyed. Nothing was left all of it was destroyed. Well here Tabitha Murray. So he says for us, but how you can label cafe here Allah and for coffee here. So He then started to do what? To turn his palm upside down clapping and turn upside down. That's that's the image, right? A common image when when a person is expressing regret, he will clap his hand and turn it upside down. This is your a liberal cafe. This is the cuff. And this is the duck leap. Right?

00:57:26 --> 00:57:33

You can leave a cafe, Alabama and Philadelphia because of how much he spent on it. While you're Kulu

00:57:34 --> 00:57:41

your lair elite and Isla Mushrik para BIA hada. And he says, I wish I did not associate anyone with my

00:57:43 --> 00:58:30

I'm sorry. Sorry. Yes, yes, yes. And Amanda Sofia, we're here how we are to another Arusha, and it was empty, right. So it was completely empty. And all the supports that had held up those plants collapsed. So this is the OCE, so whatever held up these plants, all collapsed, and it was completely empty, right. And then he said, Well, your call reality and he says, I wish that I did not associate anyone commit shirk did not associate anyone with my job. So imagine the loss, from thinking that this will last forever. And I want you to imagine that those two gardens, just to understand the magnitude of that loss, we're not talking about small pieces of land, we're talking

00:58:30 --> 00:58:40

about pieces of land that are so big and so green, and so productive, that someone could look back at them and say this will never die.

00:58:41 --> 00:59:15

Just I want you to imagine just looking at let's say for instance, today, you look at a big city, a mega city, and you will save this will live forever because of how big it is. How impressive it is. So in his eyes, and maybe in the eyes of many, when you look at these gardens, you will say, this will what are what could destroy this, what could end this business? What could end this man's fortune, how that is? That is the feeling that they left a person with. So imagine then the regret that he feels when he said, all of it was destroyed.

00:59:16 --> 00:59:38

And now he's thinking about how much money did I spend on it? And how much of my life I spent building this, and how much hope did I have for it? For myself and for my children? You imagine the regret that all this has gone all of a sudden the thing that I thought will never die now was dead.

00:59:39 --> 00:59:55

But now he understands what the consequence of this believing in Allah azza wa jal and that's why he came back and he said, I wish that I did not associate anyone with Allah's or did I did not commit shirk. Right.

00:59:57 --> 00:59:59

And someone may say, and it's a legit

01:00:00 --> 01:00:40

MIT question he says, Well, did he commit shirk or did he commit Cofer? He said we did both. So Cofer is very obvious because he said, There is no day of judgment. If a person says there is no day of judgment, even they say, I believe in Allah and the Prophet and I use occur, and I do but after salah, but he says, I don't believe in a day of judgment, that person will be a Kaffir because he must believe in the day of judgment for you to be a Muslim play. But if you disbelieve in a tower, are you a mushrik? Meaning a Sheikh is someone who worships others with Allah azza wa jal, we say because if you do not listen to Allah azza wa jal, right, you're listening to somebody else who is

01:00:40 --> 01:00:42

your house or the shaytaan.

01:00:43 --> 01:01:08

That is that chick, as Allah says, of her item and it to her, the ILA who Hawa is Have you seen the one who has taken his house or his desire as Is he as his era? Because if you're not listening in this particular vital, important piece of information, belief, to Allah azza wa jal, then somebody else has taken his place to tell you what to believe. That's typically what your knifes or the shaytaan

01:01:09 --> 01:01:25

so a bother to shaytaan is shirk are listening to yourself and making the final judge is shook. So every Kaffir, in a sense, must also commit some sort of ship. And it's easier to be seen that every Mushrik is also a disbeliever.

01:01:27 --> 01:01:38

Insha Allah. Okay, so should we, I know that there are a couple of hours to finish the story. Should we finish that and then take questions or stop and take questions? Finish? Okay.

01:01:39 --> 01:02:23

Then he says, I have 43 When I'm talking lofi i to yawn Sorona Hamdulillah. He will McKenna Monticello, he says indeed, he did not have a group or people to help him to push away the punishment of Allah Yun Sorona. Who mean Dooney Allah, the meaning against Allah asserted he had no group to defend him to help him. And he had no power to do that himself when I can, I'm puzzled. So Allah azza wa jal negates two types of power here, because either you have the power, or somebody can assist you. Right? Rationally, you either you can do it, or you can get other people to do it. So he says here, subhanho, wa taala, he had no one can help him. And he couldn't help himself. So

01:02:23 --> 01:02:30

meaning he had no help at all, no power at all. And that is the same person who says what I have done as far

01:02:32 --> 01:02:47

as whenever I have enough, are meaningful enough for all those who if I asked to help, for help, they'll help. I asked them to come out with me and fight, they'll come out and fight, meaning I have support, he says he, none of them, were able to do anything.

01:02:48 --> 01:02:53

So Subhanallah the thing that you count on, you think that will support you disappears.

01:02:54 --> 01:03:40

And you really discover how weak you are. Or I have a plan I have the best plan in five years and 10 years and none of that works right? Then you discover how weak we are all are and that is a good thing because then you submit to Allah oxygen and say Allah, I don't know anything. And I have no power, you know everything and you have all the power. So that's the beauty at times of that test that affliction. Then he said Subhana wa Tada I have 44 I knew we will stop at this idea who Narikala Tula, he'll help at that time at that spot in these types of circumstances. Victory is for Allah azza wa jal, and it's in truth, that you will see it right in truth you will see it. So the

01:03:40 --> 01:04:26

victory of Allah descends in truth, and no one can push it no one can deny it, no one can tamper with it, who now Likkle Wilaya to Lilla. Hill Hill. And also it can be read as kingship and you know, assault on right authority only belongs to Allah as Odin and you could see it clearly at those times because before you can dispute, I have power, he has power. But when Allah sends his punishment, everybody stands helpless. And you realize that no one has it except Allah. And that victory is brought only by Allah azza wa jal. It also could mean who Nikhil wala Tula Hill health is at these moments and times that Allah supports the believers against the disbelievers.

01:04:27 --> 01:04:35

And that is something like happened here. So Allah supported the believer against the disbeliever by ruining that man's gardens.

01:04:36 --> 01:05:00

And it's also could mean, right, that at that moment, and in those circumstances, everybody turns to Allah azza wa jal, whether you are a believer or disbelieve or just like on a ship that you think is going to sink. Right? Everybody starts praying to Allah azza wa jal, right, right. So on a sinking ship, there shouldn't be no atheists because everybody

01:05:00 --> 01:05:40

He recognizes that I have no power. Now you could afford to be an atheist. If you're in a rich country, you have enough food to eat, you know, you're safe. So everybody, people are taking care of your basic needs and you can philosophize and say there is no God. But Allah tests you, okay? Unless you're a stubborn idiot, right? But when Allah tests you, then you will discover your weakness and then when you find your weakness, you'll discover there is someone better, bigger and better. And that is Allah as Odin. So who now Lika at that moment, Allah has all the power he champions the believer, he humiliates the disbelievers and the disbelievers understand that the power belongs to

01:05:40 --> 01:05:45

Allah azza wa jal, and then he said, Who will hire him for wobba He has the best reward

01:05:46 --> 01:05:48

and he brings the best outcome.

01:05:49 --> 01:06:35

And remember that the best reward Allah azza wa jal brings, so it's not the reward of the dunya is the reward that Allah brings, and the outcome here that's important. Because in your life, you haven't seen the final outcome. You will see minor outcomes, right? You do something nice, you receive something nice, you do something bad, you receive something bad, these are minor outcomes. But there is the great outcome when you pass on and you meet Allah azote and that is the greatest outcome. So always think about that outcome you're sacrificing now for the best of outcomes when you see Allah azza wa jal right. So Insha Allah we will pause here and continue with Nila Azerbaijan

01:06:35 --> 01:06:39

with if 45 Next week in the last so now

01:06:46 --> 01:06:46


01:06:54 --> 01:06:55


01:06:59 --> 01:07:00

no, I'm not

01:07:05 --> 01:07:06

four minutes

01:07:11 --> 01:07:55

now now it's a good point actually, that you bring, which is that when Allah azza wa jal here says, from a cheerful human woman, cheerful yak for that if you wish you believe and you feel wish you disbelieve? We said that this is not legislating freedom of belief. Meaning that idea is a threat, right? So it's important to understand it because somebody I might say, and your question makes sense. Somebody might say, what if Allah azza wa jal allows this freedom according to this idea? How can you criticize a person's choice to disbelieve because Allah gave him that? We say No, Allah azza wa jal, in a sense meaning in creation, he did give them that choice, but he condemned it.

01:07:56 --> 01:08:28

And he had asked you to condemn it and speak out against it, and see that this is wrong. And this is haram and you will be punished for it. It's not like believe whatever you want to believe, and I'll believe whatever I believe, live and let live. It's not like that. It's like know what you believe is wrong. And you can't do it. And you shouldn't do it. But Allah had given you provisions to continue to believe in it, but I'll continue to tell you that this is wrong. We continue to tell you that this is not good for you so much on ohata learners meaning this is a form of Dawa, right?

01:08:30 --> 01:08:53

No, no, no, not fighting. It's a form of Dawa meaning. They fight you you fight them hard to hear. So oh my man I commanded to not to fight people it says they will fight you you fight them. Until that ilaha IL Allah is suffering that's what it means but no compulsion meaning you don't go to someone with a sword and say you gotta was never done or was never done yeah

01:08:59 --> 01:09:00


01:09:02 --> 01:09:03

but don't give

01:09:06 --> 01:09:07

up physically Catholic.

01:09:26 --> 01:09:59

So it's a good okay, well, I can Luffy is not just believing one thing. So it's that that thing has to be so foundational and so evident, that you when you're saying no to it, it's as if you are facing Allah as Odin and say, I disbelieve. So the day of judgment are such as such established in the Quran and the Sunnah so clearly, that her person says no to it. So you're saying what, no to half of the Quran right? You know how many I is talking about the day of judgment and Heaven and * and all of that. And they are what the pillars of E

01:10:00 --> 01:10:19

Man, so if you take that away, you've taken a very basic part of belief. But we're not talking about small tiny things very, very important big things and they're very clear in the Quran, Anson? I think we should stop. Okay, Zach, a lot of you have questions at Shala I'm available after vertical coffee Subhanak Elohim digger Shalom
