MBM Selena Vina Mohammed in

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

the cinematic

00:01:26--> 00:01:55

welcome writers for this this is a continuation of the series with Jessie we are on verses 4142 and inshallah we hope to come up to verse 46 today. Where are we? We are in a place of sort of yacine where Allah is describing the signs in the world around us signs that point towards spiritual truths. As a sign that we have reached the last sign in this section, it is about the ark of Nautilus and

00:01:56--> 00:02:17

the last conversation version 41 way too long and the reata home feel fulfilled mission and assigned for the meaning. Yet another sign for them is the is the is that we carry this seat on a laden ship. The laden ship here is referring to the ship of Nautilus and

00:02:19--> 00:02:57

one of the interesting things is, it is said that there were certain human achievements which were divinely inspired without the divine inspiration human beings would never have come to learn of these things. First is the ship the idea of being able to transport yourself on the sea came as a direct inspiration from a lot to Nautilus Yeah, so I must say is in solitude was not in full caveat. Medina we're watching you know, manufacturing the ship, under our supervision, and by our revelation, meaning the idea, to build a ship first came to human being through divine inspiration.

00:02:58--> 00:03:20

And then the module law and said about another prophet or al anon, deeds, we taught him the ability to we taught him metalworking, yeah, the the ability to mold iron into instruments and tools anyone know was probably that was doubtless in a while another who well and

00:03:22--> 00:03:45

also it is said that a prophet of Allah was inspired, how to write hot the idea of writing things down. And by consequence, all of you know civilization, that rests on education and writing, so on and so forth came because of a direct inspiration to one prophet and he want to know his prophet olanzapine. How to Write

00:03:46--> 00:04:00

Idris yes it is said reselect Salaam was inspired by Allah how to write so imagine, without this inspiration, human beings would never know how to write, pen their thoughts. And there's one other one is well

00:04:02--> 00:04:09

there was another one is the ship writing metal work with another one anyone know of another one?

00:04:12--> 00:04:14

Maybe it will come to me in China. There's another one as well.

00:04:17--> 00:04:26

Is language. The ability to articulate oneself using a language was a direct inspiration to which Prophet

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

Adam in Islam here

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

what is the verse and sort of Baccarat

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

what Allah Adana, Asma akula that we taught are the Malaysian underneath everything meaning the ability to speak language is something that comes through by way of divine inspiration. Yeah, and to be honest, anyone who studies language like the Arabic language for example, they will come across so many rules and such sophisticated

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

You know, equations and rules that you think to yourself Hang on a minute, is it really the case that some Bedouins in the desert somewhere came up with the idea of Arabic language? And they managed to put all these things together that makes so much perfect sense and are so rich and impactful? Is it really possible? The scholars are divided on this, but someone's gonna say No, in fact, language itself is a product or divine inspiration. Yeah. So, those are four things, this one of them has been highlighted in this first the ability to manufacture ships here. And that is why the second verse after this is wahala panelo, Miss Lima Yakubu.

00:05:35--> 00:06:21

And we created for them similar things which they transport themselves on. There were two interpretations there One was that it refers to any other mode of transportation from the airplane to cars to bike cycles, whatever but the other interpretation is not just the ship of nor We also created for them. Other ships that they could sail there after Yeah. Now a mama Domini said this second opinion seems to be the strongest why because the next verse after this speaks about drowning people. Yeah, drowning people in the middle of the sea, which is a continuation of the conversation about which transportation ships right. This is why he said that the more stronger opinion about

00:06:21--> 00:06:56

work on upon Allah homie with Lima Yakubu isn't all other modes of transportation. It is other ships that align inspired man to create. And here we clarified that even though you know, human beings come up with the idea to invent new forms of transportation. At the end of the day, their minds are the product of Allah's creation. Therefore, the attribute, you know, all of these things that we enjoy in our lives, ultimately they the credit goes back to Allah subhanaw taala. Yeah, now boasts, verse number 43.

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

We're in Nashua, North America home philosophy, hello.

00:07:03--> 00:07:14

And if we wanted, we could have drowned them, so that they would be no study for them? nor would they be? No would they have anyone rescue them?

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

The tone now changes

00:07:19--> 00:08:17

before it was about illustrating God's blessing to mankind, now a threat and caution is being issued. Allah is giving them a threat, that you can enjoy yourselves, by way or in, you know, the transportation on the sea. You can benefit from that, by way of exploring the world by sailing and fishing, by transporting goods as cargo. But if Allah wanted, we could have easily made that malfunction. This ship that you enjoy, it could easily malfunction and you could end up drowning. Yeah, in Russia, the word in the particle in means if but more giants would say that when you see the particle in it is usually in the context of Inca criticism. If God wanted he could have done

00:08:17--> 00:08:28

this meaning Allah is presenting a form of criticism to man. What is the criticism here? The criticism here is that, you know Allah when he gives people blessings in their life.

00:08:29--> 00:08:36

One of the reactions or one of the common reactions from human beings. Is that all in gratitude, and delusion.

00:08:37--> 00:08:42

And I think of ships and I think of ungratefulness I think about Titanic.

00:08:44--> 00:09:05

Yeah, I think about Titanic. It is said that when they build the Titanic, it was the biggest ever ship ever manufactured the most luxurious resort and some people said, not even God could sink it is not true. Yeah. Now, Muslims don't gloat over the fact that people died. But they do. Take a lesson.

00:09:06--> 00:09:50

They do take a listen. This, this, this verse reminds you of this because, you know when human beings they have, they are shown the generosity of Allah, they begin to forget about a lot. They feel like they are in control. And they made this themselves they don't need God. They don't need God. And so I must have had to remind them that you know, those blessings that you enjoy if I wanted, I could make them fail on you. And if they did fail on you, what would happen? For now? Sorry, how long? They would be no sorry for them. The word sorry, comes from Suraj. And Suraj means to cry to shout to yell out for help. Yeah, in this context, it means there will be no one to hear

00:09:50--> 00:10:00

your cries when you're in the middle of the sea and about to drown. Yeah, so you are frantically running about the ship. It has started

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

Organize groups like in the case of Titanic voices malfunction you know what was going on is sinking is no longer floating. You are a moment of desperation you cry out for help Allah saying when that happens fellas howdy how long there'll be no one to hear you imagine if that would happen to you? How would you feel? What are you alone, and there will be no one to make in.

00:10:20--> 00:10:51

The word in called means to rescue someone from critical danger, like someone is hanging off a cliff and staring death in the face. Someone comes along and they give them their hand. It's okay, I've got you. They will become one of rescues. A question to reflect over? What is the difference between saying there will be no surgeries for them? No. Would they be rescued? Don't both of them mean the same thing? There'll be no one to hear your cries. And there will be no one to rescue you. Doesn't that mean? The same thing? What's the difference?

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

What do you think?

00:10:56--> 00:11:01

Is it the same thing? Or do you think is different? Do you think there's something different between the two?

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

Yes, in the back, what do you think is the difference?

00:11:10--> 00:11:12

This is a tactic. This is a tactic.

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

Is it

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

the second one person knows that they are in immediate danger.

00:11:23--> 00:11:27

So they know that they're in need of being rescued. If you're crying out for help, I mean,

00:11:29--> 00:11:32

that's a sign that you know that you know, I'm in danger.

00:11:39--> 00:11:51

Okay, someone could hear your cries. But so the idea of someone hearing cries already negated. No one's gonna hear your cry. Which means that she knows the rescue right? philosophies that no. And you will not be rescued?

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

Yes, but he can't go there because he's right.

00:12:03--> 00:12:03

Okay.

00:12:05--> 00:12:11

Okay. I similar to what I was saying. Yes. Is it possible to turn the situation down? Yeah.

00:12:19--> 00:12:20

Okay.

00:12:22--> 00:12:29

But the thing is the idea of someone who has already been negated no one's gonna hear you. Yes. Just I'll come to your channel surely.

00:12:30--> 00:12:31

You want to offer

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

he's often to

00:12:38--> 00:12:44

Allah will destroy him. Yes. Nobody can hear. You can see. Yeah.

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

Okay, I think maybe one more one more time.

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

Anyone got something? Yes.

00:12:56--> 00:13:43

They can't hear them. They can still see them. So even if they can see, okay, awesome. Jimmy. Yes. Somebody may not be able to hear your scripts. And you're devastated man. There's no one out there they can hear me on crying out on find the flavoursome you know, shouting at the top of my lungs, but no one can hear me, man, no one's gonna see me. But in between, you're crying and you're dying. Somebody may see something. Somebody may sense something. So by saying What are you doing, you will not be rescued it completely annihilates all hope from the person is no way I'm going to be rescued. No one can hear me. No one can see me. No one can sense that I'm in danger. I am in complete loss.

00:13:44--> 00:14:20

By way of implication, there is also suggesting that human beings the only one who can rescue you is a loss of power. Yeah, instead of turning to be we should turn to Allah. One of the interesting things about you know, the Quran always presents his case, a person in the middle of the ocean, and a storm catches them. And what did they do, Tao will learn meclizine and then they will cry out to God, great to Allah McCullough's scene full of sincerity. And as if I owe us to worship you a lot. And this this human phenomena, you know, leads to this, this saying there's no there's no atheists in the middle of the ocean.

00:14:22--> 00:14:28

That's basically what the Quran saying. You might claim to be an atheist, you may claim to worship idols, but the moment you're in the middle of the ocean,

00:14:29--> 00:14:38

house now it's even God. Yeah. Now you think about a loss of power that this is the way a lawn covers the real nature of people. Yeah.

00:14:39--> 00:14:44

You know, Spanner recently, we went to that mentioned the story when I went to the beach.

00:14:46--> 00:14:49

Recently, some brothers we went to went to

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

a seaside and there was like a small island just about 100 meters away from the shore. Now for some crazy reason, others want to swim there.

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

For some crazy reason, I want to assume there is no. So the brother start to swim towards us and just wait for me, I'll come over and

00:15:08--> 00:15:13

start to swim. After about five minutes, I'm thinking I'm thinking, you know, I don't think I'm gonna make

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

they can only go this far who got this much to go?

00:15:19--> 00:15:45

For a moment, I was like, You know what? What's gonna happen to me now? There was a few brothers around me. But I thought to myself, just for a moment, you start to panic when you and this is what you start to panic. So I called the brothers I said, Russ, I think I need some help here. Yeah, so they came to help me, but in between them helping me ally, the feeling, you know, where you think you're gonna drown? What happens is the water becomes like,

00:15:46--> 00:16:27

it becomes like you're in the grip of water. And the water begins to rise above your neck and towards your mouth, and you start to taste the salt, you think you know what? So how am I if this is the power of water against me, what about the power of Allah? In bottleshop? because surely, I thought about the iron that moment, the seizing of your load is intense and severe. said this is the case of water within about a larger level. Yeah. So the one of the beauties of this verse is that it? You know, it goes to the heart of the human beings are human beings, they do believe in Allah. Yet they tried to deny it with their tongues. Yeah. So I'm not finally saying that look, all of

00:16:27--> 00:16:43

these benefits that you enjoy. If I wanted, I could reverse it, make it malfunction, change the laws of physics, such that you perish? Yeah, this is essentially what the verse is saying, Well, I don't and there will be, there'll be no hope for you if I was to do this.

00:16:45--> 00:17:10

What what was some of the lessons we learned from this? The one of the lessons we learned from this is that what this passage is teaching us is that the normality that we enjoy in our life is a product of Allah's mercy. Yeah, in fact, it rests on God's mercy had if Allah wanted, he could remove the laws, which help us to live a stable, peaceful life.

00:17:11--> 00:17:25

Yeah. So now when you look at things that weren't working well, helping you benefiting you, you think to yourself, you know what? A law could easily reverse this. And just like a ship would sink, all of this will stop working as well. Yeah.

00:17:26--> 00:18:00

The second lesson we learned from this verse is not to be complacent human beings, human beings, they have this disease, where when they experience good times, they become complacent. Isn't that true? When you're well off, and you've got people around you that love you, when you have money in the bank account. When you have opportunities in life, you become complacent. In fact, some people, they believe that God loves them because they are living in times of fortune. Isn't that true? Like the Sahaba. Gentlemen, the man with two gardens. He said,

00:18:01--> 00:18:29

Well, era did too. If I am going to go back to a law, I'm going to find better than this. Imagine this man. He was a catfish, according to some scholars, but because he had so much wealth, Allah gave him gardens to gardens, that were one of a kind, you know, think about owning a Bentley, which is a boutique no one has in the world, man as he thinks, you know what? God must love me. Maluku has given me

00:18:30--> 00:18:40

diluted? Who says that if Allah gives you money, it means that Allah loves you. Yeah. So what happens if people become complacent? And lots of fantasies and sort of out of

00:18:41--> 00:18:51

Emmylou makalah? Do they feel complacent against the plot of Allah? wala yet? melomakarona ly ill omen?

00:18:55--> 00:19:23

Omaha saloon? como hacer una la says, Do they feel complacent about God's plot? The only people who feel complacent about a large plot are a losing people are losers. Yeah, this is how God describes people, they are losers if they feel like this. This is in fact, an indication that they are people who will lose muscle rather than makers of such people.

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

So being

00:19:29--> 00:19:57

part of having a healthy relationship with Allah, is to live in the fear of Allah punishment. Yeah, that's what we're learning that if you believe, you know what, there is a chance or lack of punishment, and you live with that fear, which is compensated with a hope and allows forgiveness and reward. This is the healthiest way to live with a loss of power. In between fear and hope.

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

losses and we learn is at play.

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

seals can dilute people blessings can end up deluding human beings. There are many examples of this in the Quran. One of the prime examples that comes to mind is num root. Num wrote, The Super King argued with Ibrahim about either the existence of God, or the idea that God alone should be worshipped. And Allah tied his delusion to his wealth. When Allah said lm tala in early Hajj, Eva, Hema and

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

Tao How long

00:20:33--> 00:21:01

have you seen the one who was arguing with him about his master? Because of the fact that Allah gave him money? Yeah, a login not money Three Kingdom. So his kingdom, his money, his power, became the source of his delusion. Yeah, this is a lesson for us to be wary of the blessings in our life. It can lead to us becoming deluded about the last panel we find this you know

00:21:02--> 00:21:08

a brother Mashallah gets a promotion at work overnight Mashallah. he'd become the result

00:21:09--> 00:21:39

looking down other people token people out there nothing thinking good of himself and thinking bad about the people overnight. You know, and before this, he was the most humble person in the world. He just got one badge one tick next to his name and Hamas he became a Jabbar became a tyrant overnight you find a mini gym bus, you know all around. And then you have the big boss. Yeah, all of this sometimes is you know, the psychology behind this is a person going to do it because of the things that Allah subhanaw taala

00:21:40--> 00:21:50

Okay, in large meta minella Metatron healer hain verse number 44, except as an act of mercy from Us, to give them enjoyment for a while.

00:21:51--> 00:22:07

And lots of hands on in this verse is telling us that the threat I issued before that I could make the ships malfunction and you will drown is not happening. Because I am deciding to have mercy on you.

00:22:09--> 00:22:25

If I was to remove the mercy, you would find yourself at loss and ruin. Yes, this is the basic meaning of this verse Illa. Mata Mina means that it is by the rational of Allah that you are enjoying the blessings in your life.

00:22:26--> 00:23:14

The word Rama comes in Nikita, it is common, Ramadan, not our Rama. The difference between the two is if Allah said urashima it would mean the mercy of God. But instead of saying their mercy, Allah said, a Mercy by saying a mercy it is showing that this blessing of enjoying transportation in your life is just one of the many blessings of Allah subhanaw taala It is one of countless blessings it is a prompt one of the tokens of God's mercy for there are many around you enlargement Amina and this Mercy is from us. What is the what is the wisdom behind saying this Mercy is from us Don't you know that it is from Allah Illa ammeter Mina one of the benefits is to show that we gave this to

00:23:14--> 00:23:39

you. Yeah, we gave this to you. Though. We don't benefit from it. you benefit from it. No one benefits from this except for you even though it is from me. Now what is interesting in the Quran sometimes Allah says the word Ramadan min en Dena and sometimes Allah says the Ramadan min anyone know when example where Allah says Ramadan min Dena

00:23:41--> 00:23:42

as opposed to the min

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

Yes.

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

Why is this article useful now?

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

So come on Uh huh. Was this

00:24:02--> 00:24:02

don't

00:24:05--> 00:24:06

say the whole word.

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

Let me give you a clue. So to gaff

00:24:11--> 00:24:12

andina

00:24:15--> 00:24:15

know

00:24:18--> 00:24:40

when mo Salah Salaam and Lucia they find that Allah says so what do you mean by Dina to you know, Ramadan mean andina Yeah. Now as a principle you can write this down that in the Quran if you find a phrase which has the same meaning but more words that means that there is an increase in the meaning.

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

normally say

00:24:45--> 00:24:52

if you find in the Quran, two statements with the same meaning, but one has more words it means there is more meaning in this one.

00:24:53--> 00:24:54

Yeah.

00:24:55--> 00:24:58

As yeah the in the, in the alfalfa

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

to do Allah

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Dr. Phil Manor, this is the principal.

00:25:04--> 00:25:07

So what is the extra meaning when I say that I'm at the minute and Dina.

00:25:08--> 00:25:15

We find that if you survey those verses, they are usually about righteous believers

00:25:17--> 00:25:46

as opposed to Midna, which are about regular people. This verse is talking about the blessing of transportation which is enjoyed by everyone. But he was disbelievers, regular people. It is at the minute but when it came to the believers, Allah made that giving more special by saying in the arena, what Allah gave leaders of mercy was exceptional. Yeah was exceptional. It was min Angela.

00:25:47--> 00:26:01

Now this statement, which is even more superior than this, and that is Miller do not mean Laguna. The same verse, Allah says back either Tina Ramadan Mina andina wa alumna who

00:26:02--> 00:26:24

mille aduna Alma The second thing Allah gave him was what knowledge first was mercy second was knowledge when it came to knowledge alone there was an Indian Allah said Mila Luna the dawn means to give someone something which is close to you. Yeah. So out of the two what was more special was the knowledge of

00:26:26--> 00:26:39

Russia was amazing, but knowledge was unbelievable. Yeah, that is what we are learning. So here are the gentlemen saying this Rama is min min meaning it is for every regular person, nothing special. What matter and

00:26:42--> 00:26:50

what matter and either he means it is a form of enjoyment that will last until they die.

00:26:51--> 00:27:00

Yeah, it is a form of enjoyment that they will experience up until they die Illa hain means the fixed time literally the time that they will die.

00:27:01--> 00:27:03

Now which clever person can tell me?

00:27:05--> 00:27:10

how did how does this make sense? The whole verse

00:27:11--> 00:27:14

except as a mercy from Allah

00:27:15--> 00:27:33

and enjoyment for a while. What is the words and enjoyment for a while mean here? What is it teaching us? How is it completing the message of the verse? The first part is about you know the blessings. They could disappear but they're not because alanda the mercy on you.

00:27:34--> 00:27:35

Except until

00:27:36--> 00:27:41

that's and then omata and Isla him and that will only last until you die.

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

What extra meaning does it give?

00:27:46--> 00:27:48

Isn't it obvious that you only can enjoy the blessing until you die?

00:27:51--> 00:27:53

What is the teaching of saying either?

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

Only until you die?

00:27:58--> 00:27:59

What do you think?

00:28:04--> 00:28:15

Okay, interesting. Yeah, so these this Rama, they will last up until you die. But if you continue to be ungrateful to me, there will be no one after this. There will be no enjoy.

00:28:17--> 00:28:19

Yeah, good. Very good. Anything else?

00:28:25--> 00:28:29

Yes. You said the manga is basically generic.

00:28:35--> 00:28:35

Yes.

00:28:41--> 00:28:42

Yes.

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

Now, this

00:28:46--> 00:28:47

is what the button says. Yeah.

00:28:48--> 00:28:49

Anything else?

00:28:56--> 00:28:56

Yep.

00:28:58--> 00:28:59

Any other benefit in saying,

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

well mentor and

00:29:03--> 00:29:06

I thought about this part of the verse quite a lot, because it seems

00:29:07--> 00:29:15

as though it doesn't fix or it doesn't link with what came before. Like how does it complement what came before? I don't know if anyone sees that.

00:29:16--> 00:29:23

But perhaps the meaning here is that Allah is talking about blessings that you enjoy.

00:29:24--> 00:29:32

Now, generally speaking, the blessings Allah has given us in our life, are they only they are to give us enjoyment?

00:29:33--> 00:29:47

Or are they they are in order to facilitate a higher objective. They are there to facilitate higher objective isn't it? The blessings are there in order for us to worship Allah, to use the blessings in order to fulfill the objective of

00:29:48--> 00:29:54

of earning a lot of pleasure and entering into paradise and saving ourselves from jahannam.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

This is perhaps why Allah is, you know, focusing our attention back to

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

The reality of this life, it is there for a little while. Don't become people who get hung up on enjoying the blessings of Allah. Because you're here for a little while. And the purpose of your life is not to enjoy the blessings.

00:30:16--> 00:30:30

But to use them in order to worship me. Yeah. This is perhaps the wisdom beyond saying what matter and the last thing, you know, some people, they live from one holiday to the next holiday. Have you come across people like this?

00:30:32--> 00:30:46

Because we work in the fall in the pharmacy, I work in different pharmacies up and down London. And you go into all sorts of areas, sometimes you go into areas with no Muslims whatsoever. You know, only white people in places like that still exist in London, by the way.

00:30:48--> 00:31:28

And the kind of conversations that you hear are quite revealing about, you know, the mentality of the people. One of the things you frequently hear about is the holiday. Where did you go this year? It's a big thing. We went to Spain, stayed in this hotel. Oh, the food was amazing. And the sea. Let me tell you about that. And then the next question is, we're going to go next year, almost as if they are living from one holiday to another holiday. And if they didn't go on holiday, in Milan medical notes. Yeah, I was. This is a documentary on BBC Radio four. They said during the 2008 recession, one of the things that British people would never give up was the summer vacation.

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

Never give it up even in times of recession. People family will not give up the summer vacation. Yeah, going abroad in the summer holidays. It means that much to them. Yeah, this person kind of telling us that look, there are things in his life to enjoy. But don't make your life the enjoyment of those things. Whether you're supposed to use the good thing in your life to worship a muscle parent that woman's and either hate, it is going to come to an end one day and that will that will be the time where you'll be held to account as to how you enjoy those blessings.

00:32:01--> 00:32:20

Okay. We will cover one more verse in Sharla verse number 45, what either Kayla lahoma Tacoma Lena Avi, como mahalo, La La come to Harmon, yet when they are told, be aware of what lies before you, and what is behind you so that you may have mercy.

00:32:21--> 00:32:41

This verse is the beginning of Section four. So trc. Section four, is called the stubborn on the blind. Section four is called the stubborn and the blind. How does it link with section number three? Well, section number three was showcasing the many blessings of Allah in the world around you in nature.

00:32:43--> 00:33:02

If after those 10 different signs, you still cannot accept the message of Islam, then what does it say about you? It says that you are stubborn, and that you are blind. And that is why this passage would speak about how arrogant, stubborn and blind these people actually are.

00:33:03--> 00:33:27

One of the lessons we can take from section three in general, which speaks of that nature, is that one of the easy ways to boost your Eman is to watch documentaries about the world around us. Yeah, this is one easy lesson that you can learn a lot of showcasing some of the some of the blessings in nature. Why? Because it will boost your demand.

00:33:28--> 00:33:46

And one of the easiest ways to do that if you're feeling down, people always have this question. How do I boost my mind I'm suffering from lucky man. Isn't that true? A lot of people have this problem. One of the easiest ways is just to look at the world around you and watch documentaries about the world around you will find that will boost your demand. Anyone who's watching

00:33:47--> 00:33:49

what is the documentary on planet earth

00:33:50--> 00:33:51

planning have to Yes,

00:33:52--> 00:34:04

it will be completely in all of our last creation and we'll find that his demand is increasing spawn LA. I remember when we went to Egypt, I think in 2006, we went to the hub

00:34:05--> 00:34:09

which is like the Islamic version of showmanship basically.

00:34:10--> 00:34:34

And now the josina there Mount Sinai which is apparently the the mountain that masala Islam climbed in order to speak to a loss of panel data. So we decided to climb that mountain. We left after Elisha, it took about four hours to get to the top. Me and my friend we used to come in halfway and then we booked the rest of the way up to the top we really got to the top. It was a one hour before

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

so it rested there right at the top there was a small masala to prefer and then we prayed the federal salah and after the first Salah we waiting for the sunrise now there was a huge boulder that was sticking out. So out of the side of the mountain here literally sticking out of the mountain. And all 12 of us went and sat on the edge of the Boulder. Maybe he's got a hike to this a little bit behind everyone else.

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

people sitting with their legs dangling.

00:35:02--> 00:35:37

Then we all waited for the sunrise and Panama the colors in the sky, the way the darkness fades away and the golden yellow rays of the sun as it begin to appear, voila here your mouth opens in amazement. And when you see the disc rising from the horizon, you are just in awe of something. And what happened is when we saw the disc rise, every single one of us said Suhana law, every one of us at the same time, we said suparna law and it is amazing the creation of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:35:39--> 00:36:24

So, one of the easiest ways to increase your Eman my brothers and sisters is to watch these type of things about nature they will inshallah impact your mind positively. Now, passing number four is about people who see these things that they like, yeah, that's Mother Nature there man. We're talking about God. Yeah, those type of people that are blind to such science, Allah says what either feel alone, when it is said to those people, it taboo, be cautious. The word Taku comes from with iron, we get the word taqwa from it. The linguistic meaning of taqwa or we hire is to shield yourself from something harmful, literally the shield in Arabic is called a regard for the soldier

00:36:24--> 00:37:01

use of the shield to ward off you know, the blows from the swords of the enemies is taken away. So, when in this was the person these people are told it Taku it means Be cautious of what two things what is now been an ad code before you one alpha calm and that which is behind you. There are many different views as to what before you and behind you, me. As for Patel de patata said to be cautious that which is a vehicle before you means to be cautious about the history of the people before you.

00:37:02--> 00:37:40

And that is beautiful because it sounds good. Yeah, scene we had a case about one such people it's hard lacanian II don't you learn from history. Nations came before they behaved arrogantly they refuse to believe in Allah rejected the messengers and they were utterly destroyed and annihilate it all. Because of that, meaning because of that happening to you. Which I would say be cautious of your past since I was thinking to myself apparently you know how there is a history folder. When it comes to your Internet Explorer. Imagine there is a history folder of your sense.

00:37:41--> 00:37:50

And if you were to open it, you would find every single sim scanner that you kind of committed in your life, mail merge and a lot of figures for everything we have done.

00:37:51--> 00:37:58

Which I would say it double my been a deca means fair, all of that history of yours the sins that you're committed in your past.

00:37:59--> 00:38:24

One our alpha comm and that which is behind you, or that I would say it means your fate in the afternoon. What do you think is going to happen to you after you die? Be cautious of that man? What's wrong with you? Don't you think that something bad may happen to you if you behave in this way, if you are noxious towards God, they are being advised about what is before them what is after them,

00:38:25--> 00:38:39

which is continuing and from what he said about a vehicle he said alpha comb is fair, the sins that you will commit in the future. Yeah, the mistakes you're going to make in the future. Be cautious of that. Be wary of that law and law come to common.

00:38:40--> 00:39:05

Law and law come in so that or perhaps, perhaps, if you were cautious, to hammer, you'd become the object of God's mercy. You would become people that are blessed in your life. You would be someone who Allah shows mercy to one of the beautiful things about this verse is the use of the word key. What is the word to mean? Anyone? No.

00:39:07--> 00:39:10

No, they said no. Follow means they said what is paying me?

00:39:11--> 00:39:15

He said what is the difference? Like it is said? And they said

00:39:18--> 00:39:20

yes, majority what is much would mean

00:39:22--> 00:39:26

what he said, and it was set.

00:39:28--> 00:39:32

You know, when you're when the children are messing about and you hear something fall and

00:39:33--> 00:39:34

break.

00:39:35--> 00:39:37

Your kids come out and see

00:39:38--> 00:39:40

the vase was broken.

00:39:41--> 00:39:46

What do you mean the vase was broken? Who broke the vase? There was he wasn't it? No, no, the vase broke.

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

They want to make it module. Yeah. Why in order to shift the focus away from the dual action? Yeah. Let me give you an

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

Let me give you an example that will help you to remember this idea the psychological impact of using the passive in the Quran. One of the psychological impacts of using the passive in the Quran is in order to shift the focus from the dua to the dung to. Yeah, I'll give you an example. Imagine you came to the masjid and it is Jumeirah and you are late. You are late and you cannot get space inside the main hole. You have to sit outside. You can hear from the speaker the amount during a football and you are amazed how shallow the hook was really good. It is so good that you want to see who the Imam is because you've never seen him. You never heard this word before. So what happens is

00:40:40--> 00:40:54

that people are coming out at the end. And then you ask him who is a man want to see the man? They like go inside you see you see him? But he may be surprised when he goes What do you mean in my mind is practical. Just have a look. He comes aside he sees the gangster Mr.

00:40:55--> 00:41:45

gangster a man with the cap one back to Frank baggy jeans and T shirt is like what you came up with? You know, I don't even want to speak to you. Yeah, now, the image should not be dressed like this. But the idea is that when you saw the one who said the words, you got put off? By His words. Yes, psychologically became affected when you knew who did this deed? You didn't want to hear about the deed? Yeah. Therefore, in this verse in the read that in, we find something amazing by telling us why the appeal alone, when it is said to them, what Allah is teaching us that when this advice comes to these people, it doesn't matter who gives advice, the reaction is always the same. It could be a

00:41:45--> 00:42:04

friend, it could be a family, it could be the children that be cautious about your sins you've done in the past and mistakes, you may be cautious. You may do many bad things in the future. And if you are cautious, Allah will show you mercy. It doesn't matter if your daughter said that to you. Have your father said that to you. If the police said it you

00:42:06--> 00:42:09

appointed to the police by mistake mistake.

00:42:10--> 00:42:25

It doesn't matter who says it, your reaction would always be the same and that is profound. And that is profound. This is one of the one of the subtleties in reverse way the appeal of now when this advice is given to them. There is a combination between

00:42:27--> 00:42:28

theory and theory heap

00:42:29--> 00:42:32

are the means to give threat.

00:42:34--> 00:42:59

So it really means to give encouragement, positive advice. And third, he means to give warning and threat. A combination is brought together here, the beginning its negative behavior. So be wary of what you've done in your past and what you're going to do in your future. Lala come to the honeymoon so that Allah subhanaw taala will show you mercy you will be blessed in your life. This is positive.

00:43:00--> 00:43:02

Yes, we call this good cop bad cop isn't a

00:43:04--> 00:43:41

good cop, bad cop honey. Give warning and give positive reinforcement is bring it together bringing it together is more impactful than singling out one of the other. This is in fact a good teaching tool or parenting skill. When you want to advise your children. You want to tell them off? Tell them off and give encouragement. Why don't you want to memorize the Quran? It is good for you. You know if you if you don't memorize the Quran, then you won't be from the people of the Quran. But if you do a larger loan, I'll give you a crown on your piano. We'll be proud of you.

00:43:42--> 00:44:02

Warning and encouragement together more impactful. Yes, this is what the verse is showing here is go well Mahalo for comme la la come to Harmon. It is the idea of consequence, and reward two lessons we learned from this. One of the lessons we learned from this verse is the role of fear in your life.

00:44:03--> 00:44:07

Somebody would say why does the Quran try to scare the reader?

00:44:08--> 00:44:14

Why does grant say be cautious? Faith Allah, the Hellfire is dead.

00:44:15--> 00:44:23

The idea of fate is a negative emotion and makes you scared feel in danger. And it is not nice to be scared.

00:44:24--> 00:44:26

What do you say in response to this?

00:44:28--> 00:44:32

Someone says the Quran, William Wheeler is speaking in a morbid manner.

00:44:34--> 00:44:38

Speaking about death, speaking about punishment, fire.

00:44:39--> 00:44:43

Why does it make people feel Why doesn't it make people feel loved?

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

Why doesn't it give more focus and rewards? Peace, Love?

00:44:50--> 00:44:52

Why is he about fear? Yes, honey.

00:45:03--> 00:45:04

So you say that

00:45:09--> 00:45:10

the punishment

00:45:13--> 00:45:25

Okay, it could lead to complacency. If Allah never mentioned punishment, people would not feel the punishment of a mom. And they would end up doing all types of bad things. You know?

00:45:27--> 00:45:37

People would come spoiled as they say, children, you don't tell them have no discipline become spoiled. bruxism is true. Except there was one brother

00:45:38--> 00:46:06

and visited him one day and in Egypt, his first Santosh allies, three years old, very routine ally so naughty never seen a kid that naughty before. It was a bomb, it was time to break fast. So they have this type of dish where they have milk, and then they have dates and they get the decent mix them into the milk. Strange, but they do that. So basically, they bought this out for me when they break the fast, and they put it on the table.

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

A boy comes along,

00:46:09--> 00:46:15

wax it all over the floor. hugeness, what does the dad say? Oh,

00:46:20--> 00:46:21

what do you mean?

00:46:22--> 00:46:45

Yeah. And then after we're taking him, we're driving to the mercy then the boy goes, Daddy wants to want to see I want to see on a seat. So that's it. Okay. He stops the car. So sweet. I was like, you know, he might be spoiling you a little bit. What do you mean spoiling it? No, you spoiling him. He always given the things he wants. He can't spoil. Because now that's not true. Because that again,

00:46:47--> 00:47:10

maybe I'm wrong on this one. What? Some people don't like the way they approach the children, no discipline whatsoever. And they see the negative impact that has on their moral development as well. Yeah, they become smart and they become reckless and their studies on this as well. Anyhow. So your answer was that it could have a negative impact. Anything else?

00:47:12--> 00:47:12

Yes.

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

Yes.

00:47:18--> 00:47:18

Yes.

00:47:19--> 00:47:20

Yep.

00:47:22--> 00:47:30

Very good. The brother said that, by giving warning in the Quran, it is in fact a show of compassion from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:47:31--> 00:47:34

If a doctor knew that a person

00:47:35--> 00:47:50

if he continues on in his lifestyle will end up getting heart disease but when he came to see the doctor, the doctor said, Masha Allah, so good health are shallow. Do you do exercise every day? I wish I could be like you. And though guys, heavily obese on a diet of

00:47:51--> 00:48:11

McDonald's and KFC every day. He's like, yeah, don't worry, be fine. But he he knows on paper, this guy is bound to have heart disease, cardiovascular problems, diabetes is just around the corner. You know what would happen? If that person does get diabetes? What would you say to the doctor?

00:48:12--> 00:48:19

Say, man, I'm gonna sue you. I'm gonna sue you. You knew I was gonna get diabetes. He never told me.

00:48:20--> 00:48:44

I could What? Thus? You deluded me man. You cheated me. Now imagine a legend. I knows some people will go to the Hellfire, which is a billion times worse getting diabetes. If a logical another medic patently clear in the Quran that if you do x y Zed, you're going to go to the Hellfire when people did up in the Hellfire they would say Oh Allah, you never told me?

00:48:45--> 00:49:05

Where is the love of Allah? You never told me. So the passages of warning in the Quran are in fact a token of Allah, Allah. He does not want people to go to the help file. And in order to help them along warns them. Yeah, Allah warns them. Very good. Okay, the last lesson here

00:49:06--> 00:49:19

is slightly is a bit of a tangent, but it is that we should follow the advice of the processor. And when he told us that we should, we should often remember our own death.

00:49:20--> 00:49:59

through the crowd, the middle of that person said and authentically is frequently remembered with destroying pleasures, meeting death. This was advice of the province that allowed them to pass and it is a great piece of advice. Because if you thought that today was your last day, every decision in that day would be affected. In fact, things may change drastically in that day. If you thought is your last day, you would live that day completely differently. And if you did, every decision would become a decision in your favor for the ACA.

00:50:00--> 00:50:11

Isn't it? Yeah, so this is how the advice abroad some is, is extremely beneficial. In fact, this advice is so beneficial that it can benefit someone, even if they are a disbeliever.

00:50:12--> 00:50:22

Yeah. Steve Jobs when he got cancer, he said he went to the hospital and the consultant did a biopsy. And he said to him, Look, you know,

00:50:24--> 00:50:31

we have found some cancerous cells in your pancreas. He said, I didn't even know what pancreas was.

00:50:32--> 00:50:42

He said, No, I knew pancreas is cancer. And it's very rare for cancer. So when you go home, you should get your things in order.

00:50:44--> 00:50:48

He said to himself, get my things in order. What does that mean? It means prepare myself to die.

00:50:49--> 00:50:57

So when I went home, I spoke to my wife, and I said, This is what the doctor said. He said, to get my things in order.

00:50:59--> 00:51:00

However, he said,

00:51:01--> 00:51:13

his advice didn't benefit me. Because he said, every day when I would wake up in the morning, I will look in the mirror and say, Steve, if this was your last day, are you going to do what you're about to do?

00:51:14--> 00:51:53

Are you going to go about your daily activities in the same way? If the answer is yes, I would do it. If the answer was no, I would make drastic changes. This is how I used to live every day of my life. And this is part of the success behind my life. What is he doing? He is telling us essentially, that he's following the advice of the processor. And it is benefiting him in this life in terms of his business and his career. Yeah, look at the the beauty or the person's blessing or advice. It not only brings goodness in Africa, but also in this life. So May Allah Subhana makes those that constantly think about our own deaths. And to live with that and how that will allow us

00:51:53--> 00:51:57

to be in a permanent i'd earn your salary a dream does that go knocking about
