was salam ala Malema my info now one fan of Mr. Olympia and I was in El Mundo but Al Amin Allahumma in Allah the creek was shook Rica was in a bad attic.
So before we started in sha Allah an announcement and then a question in Allah azza wa jal or an answer to a question. So now somebody nila, so next week insha Allah will take off simply because of aid. Right? So we'll give you an opportunity in sha Allah to visit to enjoy your aid. So only next week in sha Allah are going to give you some time off but with right come right after fading the law as of June so I know sometimes it's difficult to break a habit. But keep in mind that it's just only one week and so get it get it into your calendar.
Schedule it that he has not this Friday, yeah, enjoy your life inshallah. But the Friday after your bite back in the midst of Viva la xojo. So that's the first thing. The second is an online question that I would like to answer. Because I can give it insha Allah more attention. And I want to answer it more comprehensively than the way it was asked maybe inshallah there's more benefit in it. And the question basically is
I thought that the people of Jana, because we described them as having being adorned with gold. Right, and with silk, that I thought that the people of Jana had already risen above these superficial things, and they don't need that. So why is it that the people of Jana are awarded all of these things or as they seem to be worldly possessions and interests? Were as we in the dunya we try to rise above all of that and focus on what lasts and downgrade attention to money and the material. So how is it that the people of Ghana are awarded all of this? And why is that a focus? And why is it a reward that they receive? And that could be for some people and each can have a
scale meaning a problem and understanding? Or it could cause for some people check doubt. Right? So the first thing that I want to do really to emphasize before I even answer the question is to say to ourselves, whenever we face a question, we should try our best to have it be in each can meaning a problem and understanding not a doubt.
Not a doubt that causes you to doubt the whole structure, everything, but rather is I don't understand this particular point, I can reconcile it with a another understanding that I have. So I like understanding here. So I have here a lack of understanding. But then as far as my Eman is concerned, it's solid.
Right? Rather than have a small thing that you may not understand, cause you doubt in the entire structure that you have, like my all in all of my Eman is in jeopardy at this moment because something came small to challenge it. So imagine yourself on a deserted island, you're reading the Quran, if all of a sudden you discover this idea, all of a sudden that comes to your mind all of a sudden you have a problem and understanding. You have no one to ask, What do you say?
What do you say? You have to affirm your iman, this meant to be law you are solely I believe in Allah and His messenger that whatever they say is right. And whatever they say is valid and is wise. And if I am I'm unable to understand a particular point I refer it to Allah azza wa jal, the Almighty so that I may later understand it in this life, or I may understand it in the next that an understanding of it is available, but either it is in this life, or in the next. So lack of understanding is not a cause for doubt. So the man should be solid enough, strong enough, and pull yourself back from the verge of doubt and say, No, I believe in Allah and I believe is his prophet.
I believe that this is true. I will just look for this. And I'll try insha Allah to find an answer to it. So that's the first point that I wanted to emphasize. Don't let every small thing destabilize you, and cause you to think Oh, then the whole thing doesn't make sense. There is an answer. The second thing is that when we actually were we were talking about the AI as I did kind of allude to it and why that could be a cause of it's mentioned in the Quran. If you remember when we talked about the soul and the body, and both the soul and the body have strived for the sake of Allah azza wa jal both, right? It's not only that the soul is striving and the body is weak.
All corrupt. Your body also had carried some of the burden of Islam, the salah fasting, right? Hajj, is staying away from the Haram on what it desires. So the soul strive strives and the body strives and when Allah resurrects you, He resurrects you in both, right? both soul and body. So Allah Zota is gonna bless both soul and body.
So how does he bless the soul? There is what looking at the face of Allah has xojo in Jannah, all the non physical blessings that you're going to enjoy, but the body also needs its portion of the reward of Allah azza wa jal and of the blessings of Allah. So how does it get blessed by eating by drinking, right. And also these things that Allah mentioned that it'd be adorned, that would have these beds or couches that would have palaces that would have fruits, all of these things, bless the body. So it's only just that Allah azza wa jal will reward this and reward that. So that's another point to keep in mind. Another one is
that it's important that Allah who had mentioned this for us, so that those of us who do not have it in the dunya, have an outlet for it in the akhira.
Because all of us, if you think about it, desire things in the dunya that we're unable to get
of one sort or another, right. So some of us can get married. Some of us can't have children. Some of us don't have homes, some of us can't eat particular foods do we can afford them, or we're sick and we can even digest them. Some of us cannot travel some of us can. So there is a list and the list goes on and on. So this person who sees these things in the dunya and either is denied physically he cannot do them, or because of Islam, he's denied all of that I can't go I can marry and Haram is so easy, but then Allah tells me not so I have to refrain from all of this. What is the thing that will compensate you that will assure you that will come for you? That in addition to
saying Allah as punishment is there, what is the thing that will comfort you is to say that I will see this when I meet Allah azza wa jal I'll get to get married I'll I get to have children I'll get to have this I'll get to have that of whatever is available in gender. So if I don't have it here, I'll have it over there.
So we are not above physical needs. So if you think about the poor, who see the rich living in mansions, isn't it that they wish for that?
Sleep Am I gonna go and kill people and steal their money in order to be rich or what if I can become that rich? So if you hear Allah's promise of mansions in the in Jana, your desire, your longing for mansions here diminishes, you say I'm gonna get it. Or if Allah zodion, right, does not give a person the chance to get married. And then you hear from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam that there is no bachelor or bachelorette in Jana means if you enter it, you're gonna get married. So the loss of this opportunity in the dunya is not a loss anymore. Alright. You don't have children here. And you always wished for them. And we have to admit that all of us have these physical needs.
And you can imagine that you somehow can rise above them completely. There's always something that you love and that you like, and you may deny yourself because of Allah azza wa jal so you don't have children. So when you enter Jannah, and you ask Allah for it, what happens? Allah grants you the right Allah grants you that NEMA and even to the extent so that you understand, and that people have different needs. Maybe you say, I don't need this, but many more people need that. So Allah azza wa jal, for instance, tells the Prophet salatu salam tells us that in Jannah, they will be a farmer.
And he says, Yeah, Allah azza wa jal give me the opportunity to farm.
So he will tell him, don't you have enough that he already whatever you think of whatever you want fruits, vegetables, food, it will be right in front of you why farming is his back because I like that. And in his life in the dunya, I like to do this. So in the earth era, in Jannah, he likes to do that do everything again. So Allah grants it. So he will be able to sow seeds and he will throw so with growth, see it grow and he will harvest that. So they
When people have different needs of Allah azza wa jal gives them that so you can think that that just because I don't want it, nobody else should want it or I was able to rise above this particular need is not it is no longer a need
the final answer and shall in terms of the gold of Jenna, the silica of gin and all of this, you're also thinking about it in worldly terms. And do you think that the gold of Jana is like the gold of this life? Or the silk of Jana is like the silk of this life who have names we understand what that means. This is a fabric, okay, that's a metal we understand what that means. But when you hold the gold of Jana or Allah adorns you with the gold of Jana, that beauty that that gives you is unlike anything that is here. So don't do this type of PS, right. PS in terms of what analogy of well, since it is something that is low here or we should overcome here, it is something low in Jannah. It
is low in the dunya in the eyes of the believer, why? Because it distracts from Allah azza wa jal not that it is evil in itself, but it takes away from Allah azza wa jal, so you need to be above it. But in Jana, there is no temptation anymore. And Allah reads that thing, from all anything that is negative. So when you're adorned with that, you can imagine the beauty and the light that it grants the person who wears it, or the silk of Jannah. And if you say to yourself, well, you know, I don't need that I don't want to focus on it, that is up to you. That is up to you. You don't really need to focus on it, but don't think that others don't need it.
Okay, so anybody who is struggling, who is poor, or what have you, they need to hear all of this so that they can say to themselves Alhamdulillah I have not lost anything in the dunya I will say it with Allah azza wa jal, right. And again, if something kind of lies beyond our understanding, leave it to Allah azza wa jal, Allah understands the full need and the full wisdom behind it. So I hope that answers that question or maybe similar questions that could rise.
Now we continue insha Allah and this is a 45
where Allah azza wa jal says what the Riblah hometel hayati dunya give them the example
of this worldly life command in Enza no Hamina summer like a water we were sent down from the sky for delta V in a battle Earth. And because this water, the plants started to grow and they mixed with each other they strived for Teletubby he in about will or for us Bahasa Shimon to Drew Huria but then it turned into the BRI that is scattered by the wind. What can Allahu Allah coolish a mokdad era and Allah azza wa jal is all able to do everything.
So this is another example. After Allah azza wa jal had given the example of the two men,
one with the two genders to do gardens and what happened to them, he gave another example. And these examples support each other because both of them are about the Dounia. But they complement each other in what way, the first example if something happened to real people,
but it's in the past. So in a sense, you can see it, but you can't see it.
You see a tau, because that thing can be repeated with people, you understand how it happens, and someone has money, and they lose all of it. Right? You can understand that because it kind of is personal, it's human. And you can see it in other humans around you. So in one sense, you can see it, that's a methyl an example you can see, but you cannot see because it happened in the past. So you can see, but you cannot see.
This example is one that you can see
the example of this life as far as plant life growing and then dying, that is, can be seen, but it's a bit distant from you because it's not happening to you. It's not happening to human. It's happening to another of Allah's creation. So when you put them together, it what it becomes what both examples complement each other because one is present, but one is more relatable because it happens to humans. So Allah says here, the details of the example what is it? Methanol highlighted duniya the example of this life and again, this is something that you see every year by the way, okay, spring, and then Winter, spring and winter, come out in like water, and Zina who we
sent down so here it's important because Allah says we are the source of it. So what's the source of all of this life? He didn't say a water that will just caused life on Earth that we sent it down. So you understand here that Allah is the source of this life and the source of that creation, the source of that beauty. So we sent it down Meena sama from this guy for tilaka between about two or the so because of it the plants started to grow and be strong and they intertwined with each other mixed with each other meaning that were plant lifeguard what strong and big.
And here in the in the in the use of delta V. They say that that indicates the way that this is phrased it indicates the abundance of water because it's supposed to be fact a lotta abena battle but they say because it says For filata Bihi Yanni Bill Maher effect a lotta Bielema Innerbelt, will they say that this indicates that it's an abundance of water, a lot of water come came down from the sky. And so it caused a lot of plants to grow. So that is the example it's something that is lush, and very attractive.
And all of a sudden here for us, Baja,
as if it's to surprise you. Because this when you look at it, you think that it will be there forever. And that is the example of this life, it always suggests to you that it will be there forever, whatever it is, health, as long as you have it suggests that you will be healthy forever, until you're really shocked when you are sick.
Or Or you break your arm you really shocked but the function, that continued function of you as a healthy person, that should be the shocking thing. But what do you get shocked is when you become when you get sick, or you get into an accident, you get a new car and you get into an accident and it shocks you that this has happened. The reason why it had shocked you is because you spent a long time safe and a long time healthy and a long time young and all of a sudden you say what I'm old now, how is it that I'm old, although you've seen everybody around you getting older, and the old dying and the young dying, but when it happens to you, it shocks you. So this is the shock for us,
but all of a sudden, it withers also either though it does not wither overnight. Slowly it happens slowly, right? So slowly starts to lose life lose life until it dries up completely and it turns into debris and then the wind scatters it, but then that happening seems like it's a shock. So that's the shock of this life to every person who's negligent of understanding its reality.
So that's why Allah says us Bahasa Shimon, to through Huria. So from something that is great into nothing,
that doesn't just die, it turns into but debris and dust and it's scattered and you can't see it anymore. But that is what is going to happen to this life. And then oh, Allah says, What can Allahu Allah coolish a mokdad era Allah is all able to do everything, meaning the creation and its end.
And all this universe and its end.
So Allah azza wa jal can begin it from nothing and the Hawaii and he will end it. And he begins certains law, certain types of life's on it and they also end and Allah Zoda is the only one who can do this. So that example, complements and continues the example of the two men, the rich one and the poor one and what's happened to the rich when he lost everything, because of his pride and because of his disbelief in Allah as origin. Then Allah continues to explain to us the beauty of this life and how it relates or its status in relation to the ephemera that what matters. So Allah said, This is what happens to the dunya. This is its reality. Do you want to know
the greatest thing about it and how that compares to the akhira al maluna Xena to hayati dunya. So he says money and children are the adornment of this life.
What about the auto Solly had and the lasting righteous deeds are better with Allah xojo in reward and better in terms of hope.
So, the dunya is going to end and in the dunya what is the adornment what is the beauty of this dunya l MadWorld. burnin money and children
and you can relate that
Is to the is at the beginning of Surah Alka in Jalna Allah a lot of the Xena tele Lena bluer home are you home so no, I'm Ella, we have made what are what what on this earth, and adornment of it Xena the same word Xena for it so that we will test them who will perform the best of deeds. Now Allah is telling you about this, Xena.
And then Allah says in that area we're in Elijah Idoma Allah so Aidan DeRosa. And we're going to destroy everything that is on it. Allah will show you also and explain that destruction. So this is the Xena. So if somebody asked you, in the beginning, Allah says, he had put what on this earth as a Xena? What is the Xena, or the top Xena. You see a man who will be known money and children.
Right? And in having both of them the person has a complete Zina.
And this is by the way, what that rich man claimed to have to have made him better than the poor
Muslim. And at thirimanne Kamala was one of four I have more money and more kids. Right? That's what he said these two things, I have more money, and I have more kids. That's exactly what Allah is saying here. The beauty of this life is having money and then having children and that is the duniya Yanni having money and having children in themselves belongs to the dunya does not belong to the Pharaoh.
Now why you Allahu Allah, money comes first. Money comes first and then children, even though some people will say we can sacrifice our money for the sake of our children, right? But here what Allah describes the Xena money comes first. And then children later is say because money is the foundation of Xena and the more general Zina the adornment
because what comes first, before you are a parent
And for people who are not para Bihar now who don't have children, money is still a zener for them. So it covers everybody. And it covers you before you have children while you have children and after they have moved away. So it's always there. So a person who has money is always Xena for them because they could buy whatever they want with it. They could afford whatever they want.
money without children is still Xena is still an adornment. Having children without money is not always an adornment
because they could become for some people a burden if you don't have money. Whereas with money, they say you are always beautiful.
So this is it. That's the essential Xena adornment beautification of this life.
But then Allah says Wolbachia to Solly had
the everlasting righteous. Now Allah could have said, well, Malou asylee had the good deeds.
But He called these good deeds by an adjective that is about the everlasting, and he made that adjectives into there now. So the everlasting See, he calls them the everlasting to contrast them by their most important feature that they have, which is that the last
right, so he didn't just say, and the righteous deeds, he says, The everlasting to say that one flaw in the Zener of this dunya is that they don't last meaning that you have money and you have children, when you're gonna die, you leave everything behind.
And it doesn't stay but about the at the righteous things, these tea and that's the important feature,
how you run they are better,
how you run higher than what
the Xena better than the Xena. How you don't interrupt because our but they are better in third lab in reward.
They are better MLR in terms of what you hope from them in the future.
A couple of points here, one, there's a repetition of higher better and better. That's for emphasis.
And also to underline that you expect two things from them just like with money, with money when you have money. What What kind of
motivates you to have money is what you can do with it now and what you could do it in the future, now and in the future. So about a year to Solly had the remainder or the remaining or the everlasting good deeds are done
Every now when you get them and better in the future with Allah azza wa jal. So they give you something right now,
the rewards that you see with Allah, but you also see rewards in the dunya by the way. So what is some of the follow up of the righteous, good deeds, you have Baraka in your life, you have serenity, you have contentment, they have guidance from Allah azza wa jal, and also you have risk by the way, Allah provides for you, because of the good things that you do. You know, people can get married people can get children, people can get, you know, successful businesses, because of a partial reward for the good things that they are doing so, but the main reward is in the hero. So, he says they are better in their lab, and they are better in what awaits you. So, that beats the Xena of the
dunya so for emphasis Allah repeats, hail and fail.
Okay, so what are about here to saleha so there's a hadith that says that is Subhan Allah Who Alhamdulillah Allah Allah, Allah Allahu Allahu Akbar, the Dhikr of Allah azza wa jal
and that's the easiest thing.
But every deed pleasing to Allah that is done for his sake, is included. Salah, fasting, do jihad Zakka sadaqa,
the hour all of it stays, and because it stays, it's righteous, and it's everlasting and it's best.
Allah Allah will be known someone we asked Well, can we somehow make this for Allah azza wa jal?
We say that yes can but with an intention,
because as is as they are money is not of the akhira for the dunya. As as is, do you need a righteous intention to go and work and earn money?
No, do you know you can do it just because you want to eat? That's fine. And that money that you earn and that you have belongs to the Dunya doesn't belong to the Ashira? When you have now have children? You go and you have them? Are you thinking about am I going to have children because I want to please Allah xojo and this and that, most of the time, that's not the case. The what they are, they belong to the dunya they don't belong in the era. So both of these things will stop at the gates of death and they will not be able to help you in the era they don't migrate. How do they migrate is with intention? So with money, what do you do? To make to to, to make it from a bucket?
You give sadaqa and you give us a cow? And you help people with it. So it moves from the Xena into Berthiot for you for the child? How does he or she moved from a Xena only adornment. Hey, look how many children I have. LOOK SO and SO graduated from medical school, you know how people brag about their children? Look, they got married, and he has a great job. This is all dunya by the way, when you're talking about this, and maybe you have a right to brag about your children and maybe you don't and maybe you shouldn't.
But I'm saying this is all dunya that you're still in how do you move them from the dunya into the akhira? Because it doesn't really matter ultimately, whether he's a doctor or a janitor, what happens to him when he meets Allah Allah is what matters, does it?
That's the only thing that matters. So how do you move them from the dunya into Alba PA
is that if you have a proper intention, and you raise them right and you teach them Islam,
and Allah will reward you for that effort. And they in return make the out for you.
So that it benefits you in the Alpha, but lacking that they squarely belong to the dunya they don't belong to the AFA. So if you want your children to benefit you
raise them according to what Allah loves and teach them Islam and let them love Allah xojo and show them the how you are as a Muslim, so that they will remember you later and make dua May Allah forgive my mother, may Allah forgive my father, for the or for what they have taught me for how they have guided me for what they have, let me know while they were alive for the gift of Islam, in addition to have how they've taken care of me and this and that, so this is how you move any that NEMA into an AMA also in the earth era.
Then Allah has Zoda now he's going to show you what happens to everything in the dunya that's is is its beauty. This is what fascinates you about it, see what's going to happen to it. So Allah azza wa jal says why young woman new say urology Bala on the day when we will make or we will move
what total out of the berries and you will see the Earth visible meaning flattened and visible. Well, I shall now home and we have gathered them Filum Naga, Theremin Omaha we did not leave a single one behind. So, this is on the Day of Judgment.
So, and maybe here at the beginning Wyoming who say urology Bala and on the day it may mean and remember or be aware of or it could be in the connected to the next idea when Allah will ask him a question or two more now you have come to us. So it could be related to this we will say to them on the Day when We will remove mountains. So it could be simply and remember or and mention or be aware of when we will remove mountains, Nusa Ural GBL meaning the mountains will be plucked out you can have two meanings the mountains that you see that no one can move will be plucked out and they will be like wool and they will what they will fly like the clouds. What are algae Bella Cebu Hi Jeremy
that we're here to more Roma rasa harbor you see the mountains you think that they are fixed and stable and they will what run like the clouds. So Allah will pluck them out of this earth and they will run like clouds. So that's one or float like clouds. That's one meaning of it. The other meaning is that you can see foolhardiness for Allah Azza will blow it to pieces and it will be dust. So they will fly. So they will not be any mountains. The woman who say you will Jeevan
and that tells you about the magnitude of what is going to happen these immovable mountains the humans cannot move these mighty mountains all of them Allah remove because that's the kind of one of the greatest structures that you could see with your own eyes you can stand next to and feel so insignificant next to it. It says this great series of mountains all of them Allah will take away no say urology bar.
And then he says what are a lot of the berries and you will see this earth when you will get to see it this earth baddies meaning visible all of it.
You say well, it's visible now he says no, not in that way visible, because all the mountains all plant life. Okay, all valleys everything will be removed and it will be flattened completely. Like like a piece of leather commit deal. Adeem. They say if you have a piece of leather, and you flatten it, because you want to treat it and you want to sell it. So you really stretch it, you know, you stretch leather, okay, to dry it and to treat it, he says this is committable edema will be stretched completely. So the earth then will be flat. Right now. It will be then flat. So when it's flat like this, right? See somebody's smiling, right? Yeah, then flatten that. So when it's like
bat, you could see all of its baddies. Nothing of it is hidden. What are other berries,
and Allahu Allah, I'm gonna kind of a lesson that you can take from this or a benefit from it is that all landmarks signposts on Earth disappear.
So you no longer can say this is my house. And this is my country. And this is my piece of land, all of it goes away. Right? So all these attachments do the dunya because you could still see the dunya but all the attachments to the dunya evaporate, and you will understand that what you thought that you belong to in the dunya it really was nothing. This is my land. And now where is it?
It disappeared. This is my territory, or this is my country, everybody stay out.
Our country nobody gets gets to get in. Everybody stays out now where is that country of yours. So that was fake. That was fake. None of that exists. Because now all of you are gonna move to a new land and this land palace that was the land of testing. So these divisions that people have property exist if you own something, you own something, but at the same time, it's not the thing that defines you and you know that your hold over it is temporary until Allah takes it away from you and gives it to somebody else. What are the berries or what hash of now home for them, Nevada, Reno, Nevada, and we collected all of them, not a single one who left behind and that spells out the power and the
wisdom of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah because if a king an earthly king wanted to collect all of his subjects, and one of them is an offender that knows that if he faces the king, he'll be punished. What they can do is they could try to hide
hide in the barn hide inside their house somehow maybe the king will not know about me, because I'm now on a Monday.
Nobody, so I could be I could be left behind and if I do, I'll be saved for Allah azza wa jal not a single person who will be left behind meaning you are going to be resurrected and you will be gathered. There is no place to hide.
And in the flat earth, where will you hide anyway? Right? Okay. So, and then Allah continues and he says, we're already do a lot of because of, so all of them are resurrected and all of them are collected. And he said, Subhan Allah to Allah will all you do and because of they were presented to Allah azza wa jal in rose. So here the the word is singular SFX.
But the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, he says, Will says sofa and Rose. So meaning all of humanity, when they will be standing before Allah azza wa jal awaiting judgment, everybody are standing in rows.
Okay. And in fact, it says in the Quran that that's also how the angels will stand. Raja Rob Booker will Melaku sufferance of Allah who will come and the angels rose rose. So the angels will stand like that, and the people will stand like this. And he imagined here the surrender
and the discipline and the submission to Allah azza wa jal, because he can't even speak until you're given permission. Okay? And in certain instances on the Day of Judgment, he would not even be able to speak until you've given permission and the way that you stand in a very orderly fashion as if, and it is indeed you're standing before the King who is Allah azza wa jal so that's Allah has complete power. So here you find people thinking that I'll do whatever I want. That's the first sign over there that no you're gonna stand in this place. You can stand in that formation until you're called on until you have come and to answer for what you have done. So that is complete submission
to Allah azza wa jal. So any sense of false pride or false strength that you have in this earth will evaporate them right? Because you will think you're strong and you until you meet somebody who's stronger. I can take anybody on right I'm strong until you meet somebody who can actually defeat you and then you realize how powerless you are. So before that happens, Allah is telling you this is how it's gonna happen. So lie and Rose before Allah azza wa jal, then Allah who will say la caja de tu Munna coma HELOC na wala Mara, you have come back to us the same way or in the same fashion or like we have created do the first time Byzantium Allah Naja Docomo Aida, but you claimed that you will
not return to us we will not appoint a time for you, for you to return. So Allah azza wa jal is chastising and mocking them there. So you see, we told you that you will come back and all of you now are standing not only now in rows, but come a HELOC. Now come Oh, well, Amara as we created you the first time meaning what the what do you have with you?
What do you have with you? Nothing,
nothing at all. So no money and no power. The only thing that you have is the good or bad that you have done. And now you're not a child anymore. You so you have your experiences, and you have your mind with you. So Allah will ask you, but besides that, everything else you have been stripped of everything else,
that you don't have it. Even if you've lost any part of your body, you get it back. Right? Even the circumcised part.
You get it back. And you're also standing naked.
Right? Naked. And that is kind of an extreme show of surrender, and Poverty and need. Where if you can even cover yourself, Allah is the One who will cover you, you can even there's nothing to cover yourself with. Allah is the One who will cover you and clothe you. So you can even afford that. You can even ask anybody for that when you stand naked. Now Aisha Radi Allahu anha
when she asked the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam he says they will be naked Jesus men and woman looking at each other. He says the matter is much more severe for them to care about that.
And it tells you how heavy that day will be. Because it no matter obviously almost no matter what happens almost right? If they are naked men and women, you somebody will just take a peek.
Oh naked. Okay for the for okay, I haven't seen this before. So I will just take a peek must be right. Why? Because what's happening?
is not so devastating. It's not so heavy to take their mind away of it. So there's always like a room left for that desire.
Yeah, you have something if there's an accident but okay, this I could look here, or am they gonna deep take away all my money but there's still I can look here. But what is happening on the Day of Judgment is so severe and so strong that even that is not going to capture your attention. Because it is so unprecedented. You haven't seen anything like this, the earth all of it. The sun, the moon, the sky is being ripped apart. Imagine the sky is being ripped apart, the sun is coming close. The earth is being flattened. Everybody who had ever lived is on the face of this earth right now. What's happening to me? What's what's, what's my fate? Am I gonna go to hellfire? And then you're
going to be thinking about nakedness? No, this is no, you're not going to even be thinking about it. But this tells you that even one of the strongest temptations of the dunya is no longer a temptation at that moment, it's just goes away.
And maybe some person can take from it is that to a thing that can burn, because that temptation, you could liken that to a yearning or a burning in this dunya so if something burns inside you need kind of like to it to satisfy it. So it can satisfy or remove the burning of the Shaohua is remembering of the burning of hellfire right. A burn to remove a burn, right.
So you have come to us completely helpless Kemah hola como la Mora? No, but you have claimed that there is no appointment for you or so on. As we said, Allah azza wa jal there is marking them and reminding them of the reminder many reminders that he have seen, there's a day of judgment, there's heaven there is held there is all of this and they kept being reminded of it. And now you see it with your own eyes. So again, here the lesson is, before you have to face this and be not ready for it unprepared for it believe the Promise of Allah xojo So you could face all of that. Right?
And Allah continues and he says what will the Al Kitab he says and then the book meaning the Book of records will be placed, placed were placed in the hands of every single person or they see possibly blade placed in the scale but Willow Island placed in the hands of every single person because of what follows.
Federal mudra Amina machete in me Murphy you will see the criminals the wrongdoers alarm the fraid of what they have read in it, or what they have found in it
while you're coluna and they say yeah, well you let her know. You say you wrote to us.
Maddie her they'll Kitabi why does this book law you've heard eurosai Rotten wala KB rotten Illa saw her does not leave behind something small or big but had recorded it.
Well, what do you do, man? I mean, who held the law and they have found what they have done present? Well are usually more of Bukit hada and Allah does not deal unjustly with anyone. So that is the scene where everybody will receive their book and Allah here is describing only the wrongdoers and the criminals. So all the book now, how will the books have been distributed? And everybody gets the chance now to scroll through and read their life? And the criminals here you say? Yeah, well, you let her know. Yeah, why Latin means Oh, our destruction come now we need you. Meaning me. Oh, my death? Come down. Because now I need you. This is what it means. Yeah, well, you that's an accom.
Now, meaning let my end beam now. Why does this book record everything?
And they say, does not leave behind small or big?
And they say Allah, Allah and why does Allah begin? Or they say Why does not believe small or big? Why does he begin with small, more than big? Because see, it's not amazing to include the big things, because they are the big things. But every small thing. That's the amazing thing is that every small gesture or laugh or wink, that was wrong, even that's recorded, every gesture not the big things like somebody killed someone, he would expect the death that should be recorded because it's really was awful. But he mocked someone and that also is recorded. So what surprises them is that it's so comprehensive, that even the smallest of things they are reading on this day on this
day on this day and the big the big may not be so surprising. But if the small and if it doesn't leave the small obviously doesn't leave the big.
And then Allah says
And they found everything that they have done present present in two senses present in the book and present in reward in terms of reward and punishment. Everything is present so it doesn't run away.
You can you can forget about it. But it doesn't forget about you. Or rather we say Allah does not forget about it. Saw hula hula went as soon as Allah says, Allah records it and they forgot about it.
Right? So our books are likely to contain things we forgot about,
say and things we're not aware of that actually our sins, but we just went
ignored them and then we forgot about them. So part of the dua of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam yeah Allah I asked you forgiveness for what I know and forgiveness for what I do not know.
To indicate that there are things and there might be many of them that we have done and we've forgotten about. So before you want to see them, in their book, we ask Allah azza wa jal for forgiveness for all sins and include focus on the axle Allah azza wa jal says forgive the sins that are in between Salah to another Salah Juma to another Juma Ramadan to another Ramadan Hajj and to another Hajj and so on. So these things cleanse the in between sins.
And Allah says Allah you have a limb or a book or hada and Allah does not deal unjustly with anyone.
Meaning even they Allah tells us now but even they on that day, they'll recognize that Allah is being just with them.
And Allah if he wanted to, if he wanted to, Allah could be unjust with them.
But he is not.
Right? Allah decides that he does not want to be unjust, is Allah azza wa jal says in the end according to the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam yeah a bad day in the haram to buena and NFC or JAL to Hubei inna como haram and Allah Tala mo it says oh my servants I made born haram upon myself and I made it haram for you so don't wrong each other. So Allah azza wa jal is telling you that you have the ability to be unjust right or wrong. You have it and I made it haram so don't and he's saying that about himself are in the haram to Luna and NFC mean I made it haram for myself. And that indicates Allah has complete power that if Allah azza wa jal wanted to hypothetically take
the people of righteousness and put them in hellfire he can and take the people of wickedness and put them in Jannah he can, who can question him, right? But Allah azza wa jal is just out of choice, not compulsion, but are a choice and that is admirable. That is what makes you praise Allah azza wa jal because he could act whatever way he wants, meaning, you in a sense, just being you, you don't have a right you say, well I worshiped Allah azza wa jal I have a right
what gives you that right is Allah xojo. That you have a right upon Allah zodion But who made it so a right?
Allah? Happily by the Allah Allah? Okay, this is the right of the servants of Allah upon Allah azza wa jal will help Allah Allah, Allah labor. Right? So, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He asked us a hobby, he says, you do? Do you know what Allah has right upon His servants is, he says what he says that they worship Him alone and associate none with him. And he says, Do you know what the servants writes upon Allah? If they do this? He says what he says that he puts them in Jannah.
So who had who had put this right? Allah azza wa jal and that is what kind of pushes you to love him. subhanho wa Taala because Allah could act in any way but also humbles you. Hey, you know what, I fasted Ramadan I deserve? No, I did hatch I deserve you only deserve out of Allah's mercy. Otherwise on your own, your actions don't deserve a thing. Right? Allah does not it does not owe you. In other words, right? Allah does not owe you
but Allah out of his generosity gives you so it's it's a different relationship of a person can think about it. Allah doesn't owe me but Allah azza wa jal favors me with this and that.
Now, when I look at more of Buddha shahada, and of course you learn from that not to be just yourself, I mean, to be just I'm sorry to be just yourself. So if Allah azza wa jal takes those who ascribe children to him and they reject Him and they say he does not exist and they kill his profits and they kill
of the believers and they spread corruption on this earth, and they do and do and do, meaning that they attack Allah has voted in ways that no one has attacked you. And yet he could be just with them. Having all power over them, he could be just this tells you that you have to be just with people as well, even if you hate them, and even if they wronged you, if you punish you punish with justice and you don't move beyond that, and let that into your inspiration be Allah Azawad who's always just right.
Then Allah azza wa jal says, What if Kunal Mala egotist Julie Adam, when we set and then what if put in a meaning and remember when we said to the angels, prostrate in sujood, to add them, so they prostrated into a bliss except for a bliss. He was from the jinn for first icon Amira Bay he rebelled, and he exited from the command of his Allah azza wa jal rebelled against the Command of Allah and left it. Then Allah says of Luna who would Orietta who Olia I mean do any will whom Allah can do so do you take him and his progeny? Oh, Leah helpers and supporters besides me or instead of me, well hola Komodo while they are your enemy, Sally Lolly Mina. But Allah, what a worst exchange
that is. So Allah, as noted here is talking about whom talking about Iblees. Why bring in bliss here, because he is a source of temptation in the dunya. So Allah Xeljanz said, This is what's going to happen to the dunya. Right, that's its fate. This is its Xena. This is what stays, and then this is what's going to happen to this earth. And as if his somebody will say, why do we get tempted
on the dunya if this we understand that this is its fate, and it will end and Xena doesn't last. And Allah's promise is true, what is the thing that takes those takes us away?
A bliss and his whispers. So Allah wants to explain to everybody here is
the reality of bliss, so that you understand who your enemy is. So we said to the angels was duly Adam prostrate to Adam, so they did except for the bliss he was from the jinn.
And that here stating that he's from the jinn helps us understand why he didn't prostrate.
Right. So all of the melodica they did, and the mala eco Allah this says about them what Leia Soon Allah humma Amata home, or if adwind Emma, you moron, they do not disobey Allah zodion in whatever he commands, and they do what they are commanded. So if he was from the angels, he would not disobey.
So he's not an angel. Right? And this idea is clear in stating that IBLEES was not from the angels. So why then was he commanded when the angels were commanded? Why was he included? Because he was worshiping with them. So he's not an angel, but from the jinn, but was worshipping with the mala Iike so he Allah says, prostrate to Adam sujood right so Jude and when they say so do the St. Jude on the ground, there was somebody could say, Well, isn't this only reserved for Allah Zoda meaning if somebody now does this, so do it for anybody else would that be allowed
no, be haram. Right will be haram would be bitter and in some cases, it will be *can Allah azza wa jal depending on the intention of that person, but he says okay, I just want to greet a people but with misunderstand him is understand, I just want to greet so and so I want to make so do to them we say no haram, the prophets Allah Silla forbade this, the the, why is it legitimate here?
Because who commanded it? Allah Zoda, then that's done. If Allah commands that you would do something, then that is allowed, just like Allah azza wa jal when he told Ibrahim alayhi salam sacrifice is my aid at that moment, sacrificing Israel was allowed or not? Absolutely otherwise, what is haram outside of that command, killing your son for no reason what is haram? But Allah said, it was an obligation until he said, Stop.
So when Allah commands something, it's no longer prohibited in those in any in the limits of Eliza that said so prostrating to Adam Alayhis Salam was not sure it was What a show of respect a show of gratitude. But a shout out Allah Allah commanded it IBLEES from the jinn refused, and his reason for refusal was what
are the NSA Roman I'm better than he is. And that
pride. He could tie it to the pride that we talked about with the disbelievers in Maga, sit to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, get rid of those Muslims, poor, dirty, foul smelling Muslims, we want a separate place to sit. So that is the pride that they had trying to dismiss the people of iman because they felt that they were better. And that is the pride that disbelief who had those two gardens had when he believed that what he had made him better than the believer who had less so pride so Allah azza wa jal wants to show you the consequence of pride, that if you have it, you end up being like Iblees, rejecting Allah zodion and his commands. So be wary of pride.
Right? Be careful not to have it because he say there's a difference between the sin of Adam and the sin of Iblees. There's Marcia.
And as long as your sin is Marcia, like the sin of Adam alayhis salaam, you can always hope for Allah's forgiveness, because you do it and you regret and you will do it and you ask for forgiveness. So always that could be erased. But if the sin is the sin of pride, he does not come back to ask Allah for forgiveness. I am not going to do this. That's rebellion.
So that's like a rebellion of those who say what I will not. God does not exist. There's no coming back from this. Unless they change their mind. There's no coming back for this because there is no asking for forgiveness. Or we reject Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam out of arrogance. They know that he's right. But we will not follow Him. There's not coming back. Because you don't admit that this is something that needs to be fixed. No, I'm better. I'm not listening to him. So arrogance, when that is the sin that's destructive. So Allah is saying he was from the jinn he rebelled, he was proud, and that caused him to fester AKA, to exit and leave of command of Allah azza wa jal and
loses status from being from among the angels and around them to be what deemed and Accursed In The dunya. And in the era. Such a low status and that's what pride does you think that because I think I'm somebody that I'll be somebody. And what does Subhanallah is that your pride is your downfall just like a police.
And it's very telling Subhanallah how Allah hadn't even made it. So you want to elevate yourself and your drop yourself to the lowest station.
But if you humble yourself before Allah azza wa jal, Allah elevates you.
So don't be proud and don't elevate further to zip code and full circle. Don't praise yourselves, who will be many Tucker Allah knows who is truly righteous. If you are Allah Zota if there is good in you, Allah will show it. You don't need to brag you don't need to people are you look at me and see who I am. If there is good in you, Allah will call people to you. And Allah will show you that righteousness. And I reminded
one of the scholars, Muhammad Allah, they isn't only me his name, and he used to write, right? And he would write by hand, and he will keep it. And he published while he was alive a book or what have you. But he would write and he would keep it. And they asked him, he said, they said, Why don't you publish? What you are writing Meaning seek it, seek to publish it and promote it. And he said Rahmatullah Allah He said, If Allah knows that there is good in it, it will be published.
It'll spread. Right? If Allah knows there's good in it, it will be published. And after his death Ramat Allahu Allahu Allah azza wa jal guided people to go and collect everything that he had written, and to publish it. And it's all available now in volumes, whoever wants to read it, it's even available online. Millions and people can access it. But he alone in a very small library among old manuscripts and old, you know, yellow books, writing by hand, how could he have known that anybody would be interested in what he's doing?
So that's, that's kind of the lesson is that if there is good in it, Allah xojo It will make it blossom and make it known and be you know, bring a benefit out of it. You don't need to worry so much about it. So Allah azza wa jal here is saying,
This is what he did. This is how he rebelled. Then he says, or do you take him and his progeny as helpers are champions as guides only me but those who are close to you, you listen to their counsel, you listen to their advice. You listen to his promise of Iblees and the valleys and the shayateen around you, you listen to them while they are your enemy.
Like does this
make sense to you? That Allah had told you that he is your enemy and he is always around you telling me you don't pray, don't fast. Look at the Haram hurt this person, hate that person, do all of that. And you're listening to them all the time knowing two things. One, what he did to himself with Allah azza wa jal that his own advice destroyed him, and you still listening to him? Like if somebody comes to you with a great plan for investment, and he went bankrupt, do you listen to him? He says, I'm a great plan for you. If you just give me all of your money, I'll be able to help you with it. And you Lou you research them online, he says his like one bankruptcy after the other and you say,
Yeah, that's a great candidate for investment. A synopsis don't go away because you couldn't help yourself. How could you help me? So his advice is what he's telling you, oh, don't leave the commands of Allah azza wa jal. They're too tough. They're too you know, too burdensome that come you know, there's ease there's fun. There's entertainment here, if you think that he's actually advising you. Don't listen to Allah as though do you think that he really is looking after your best interest? So if he couldn't, the best of his ability, best of his ability, couldn't help himself? Then he can help you. So that's the first. The second is he's a sworn enemy of yours. He said. So I
will destroy as many of them as possible and then you listen to his advice instead of me.
That's the thing that hurts when you know you think about it, that's the thing that hurts. I'm the one who created you and give you food and answer your DUA and protect you and I will protect you from him if you wish and you take him as your helper. And as your friend, Sally volley Mina Bella, what an incredible loss and exchange that is, right? Then Allah azza wa jal says,
Masha to help us somehow it will argue Allah, Allah and fusi Him will not come to Motorhead and Molina I'll do the
he says, I did not make them meaning the, the devil's and bliss and those whom you are listening to instead of Allah azza wa jal, so it can include the devil's a bliss or any one also that you listen to, like worship instead of Allah azza wa jal, listen to you in opposition to Allah azza wa jal, Allah says what mush had to whom I did not make them witnesses of the creation of the heavens and the earth, or witnesses to the creation of each other. And I wasn't going to take al Molina the misguided alHuda as helpers.
So Allah azza wa jal, Who here wants to explain and show you their extreme lack of power.
That is this person that you're listening to, or this person that you claim is a partner with me, he did not witness the creation of the heavens and the earth.
He was absent. So he knows nothing about them, I created this on my own, not them.
And they even if you consider them to be a Shediac, meaning you call them instead of Allah xojo. Right, you're also and so help me so and so take care of me, you slaughter to them, you pray to them, right? Or you listen, you simply listen just like a bliss, you listen to them, and say, Okay, do a comparison here. So they did not that limit of their wisdom and knowledge, they did not see the creation of this heavens and the earth. See, you know, how less they know about it, they didn't witness it.
To so they know very little about it. And even their own creation, they did not witness
and the creation of their each other they did not witness. So that is what lack of power, lack of knowledge, lack of insight. And also, they could not be my helpers.
I didn't need them. But also because their character is that they are misguided, they are wrong. And I will not take anyone who's like that to be a helper because they're not fit. So they don't have the power. And they don't have the wisdom. And their character excludes them from being helpers of Allah azza wa jal because they are modeling. Just like when you want to ask someone to help you Who do you ask for help. Someone who could betray you or someone that you trust.
Someone that you could trust someone who can actually help, but you bring an enemy, and you say, Help me, he's not an adult. And the adult by the way, is your arm. Right? You see it used in the Quran, this is the adult and it's used to indicate help. So who is your adult, the one who supports you here because your arm supports your hand
arm supports your hand. So this is you know, honest, heartless and I should do although there can be a thick, he will Allah azza wa jal said to Musa alayhis salam, we will strengthen your output with your brother to mean that we will strengthen you mean because of this is strong, you're strong. If his This is stronger than you're stronger that's what it means. So malcontent, Taka Animoto, Lena Alda because they are not fit to be helpers of Allah as well. So they should not have any power. They don't have power.
Previously in the past, they don't have power in the present and they will not have power in the future and that's the next idea. But we will leave that next i In sha Allah for next week we know not not next week, the week after written Allah so just so just a reminder, inshallah anybody just came late next week insha Allah we're off, but we'll come back in sha Allah that week after we didn't last.
So you have questions in sha Allah let me know. Or if you think of questions later on, because I think that could happen as well. You could either write them down or post them online. And if I have access to it in sha Allah online and sha Allah, I'll make sure Shala to answer them here. And the next time we meet or if you forgot, just you know, write it down and present them to me in sha Allah at the beginning of next times halacha Allah
anything in sha Allah
Play vertical Luffy calm don't remember don't forget insha Allah Tuesday's The Day of Arafah May Allah azza wa jal you know make it a blessed day for everybody.
