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

I woke up my brother sisters, the sisters Jassim continues, we have reached Now verse number 46. Yeah, so this is halfway in the sort of jazz scene. So the acid is composed of 84 verses. And this is like the fourth section. Yeah, the fourth section is to do with the stubborn the blind people who refuse to see signs around them with those signs directly coming towards them, such as the signs of Revelation, that was the beginning of sort of jazz scene, where verses came down to say, in the middle, or sorry, in this man, the professor Sonam is certainly from those who have been sent and he's on a straight path, I'm telling you a lies telling them directly giving them signs, Revelation,

00:00:45 --> 00:01:26

but they turned away from those signs. So another set of science game that came in the form of a story, a lesson from history, about us Harbor, Korea, the people of the town, and how three messengers came to them, and they arrogantly denied them rejected them, and ultimately, they met their fate with destruction, they were wiped out harm you do like a campfire had been put out, then another set of science and that is the signs in the world around them in signs in nature. Yeah, that is the section before this was illustrating many different signs in nature that if people look at and ponder over they will reach the same conclusion that you know what there isn't Allah and he

00:01:26 --> 00:01:53

deserves to be worshipped? Yeah. Now, if people turn away from every single type of sign, there is B that the spiritual sign, be that to sign history B that the sign in nature, then what are those people they are blind, and they are stubborn? Yeah. And that is where we are now, these verses about such people when it began by telling us that when they are advised were either played alone it that be cautious of that which is before you and that which is behind you

00:01:56 --> 00:02:38

saw that perhaps mercy may be shown to you then dot dot, dot, yeah, that was the verse before this verse number 45. Now, the dot, dot dot means that their reaction and their response to that advice was not, was not written down explicitly. But what is their reaction? It is that they refuse that advice. They reject it, and they turn away. But it wasn't mentioned explicitly. That's interesting. Because if we skip one verse after that, and another piece of advice is given to them, and that is what you feel alone and shameful. When it is said to them spend your money on people that are deserving of it poor people, their response is documented and allowed to say that they say in

00:02:38 --> 00:02:52

response to the believers, should we feed people who if Allah wanted, could have fed them himself? Yeah. Now why over there the response is given, but in this advice, it isn't given. We'll come to that in Sharla.

00:02:53 --> 00:03:22

But what was implied is made clear in the middle of verse 4546, which is where we are now Allah says, What mattered to him in it, they ignore every single sign that comes to them. mean, I have to obey him from the master, Ill can warn him are you doing? Yeah, whenever assigned comes to them from the signs of the master, their reaction is what they are more adults. This word more adult, it means to

00:03:24 --> 00:03:38

intentionally turn away from something intentionally ignore something, someone can miss something, fail to see something that's not a market. A market is someone who intentionally turned away from something.

00:03:40 --> 00:04:23

Mohammed Al amin has shifted he said the word Mari that comes from the root of our own, which means the side of something and he said, it's the idea that when someone turns away, he shows his side to that person and his neck becomes his face towards that person because he turns away from him. Allah say that whenever the signs come to them, this is the reaction that they intentionally ignore those signs. Yeah. Which points towards the character of those people that they are arrogant. Yeah. But this verse is very interesting. Because Allah doesn't say when a sign comes to the law says when a sign from the signs of their master come to them, that's what they do, which gives us two in two

00:04:23 --> 00:04:26

connotations. The first connotation is that of diversity.

00:04:27 --> 00:04:36

The second connotation is that of abundance. Yeah. How so? Allah says, when a sign from the signs of the monster,

00:04:37 --> 00:04:42

now that means that many signs are coming to them. And they all different science.

00:04:43 --> 00:04:59

Whatever the case, any one of those different signs the reaction is exactly the same. And that ties in nicely with the pre The, the sutra, up until now because a diversity of signs have been shown to them. Assign which is direct assign which is historical and assign that

00:05:00 --> 00:05:07

Which is in nature, three sets of signs, but the reaction is exactly the same. Secondly, it shows us

00:05:08 --> 00:05:36

abundance mean to have been assigned from the signs, meaning Allah has sent them not one or two signs, many signs have been coming to them. And then we come to them from all different directions. Wherever the sun comes, how frequently it's coming to them, how, what what the variety of the sign is their reaction is the same. Yeah, the reaction to the same illa kangwon has been they are more lean towards those signs.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:38


00:05:39 --> 00:06:02

Mohammed Amina Shanti the he said that there's many verses in the Quran which express the same meaning. One of the interesting ones you mentioned is verse number 105. And sort of use version 105 mustard uses is the concluding passage of the story of use of Islam. In the verse Allah says worker a you mean area team facility will update facility will update

00:06:04 --> 00:06:09

your more rune Alia wha hoo hoo Moran hamari. Allah says

00:06:10 --> 00:06:58

that how many a sign comes to them from the skies on the earth except that they Maroon it that they murrah means to pass by Miranda means to literally step over something, you know, something in the street, you know, is there because you stepped over it? It's not yet to, you know, you missed it, it was right down the street, you stepped over it. That is the way a lot talks about the attitude to a lot of signs, that they literally go out of their way to step over them. And those signs are in the sky and on Earth, in space, outer space on this earth, wherever it may be, their reaction is the same that they are more than they do. You have to make a lot of them. Now, that verse is coming at

00:06:58 --> 00:07:04

the end of the story, the story of use of electron. Now in Arabia at that time,

00:07:05 --> 00:07:51

no one knew about the story of useable Islam in that incredible detail. That Sora went through the life of use of Islam in 100 verses, detailing his life chronologically with details that were completely oblivious, and unknown to everyone in Arabia, even possibly, to the Jews and the Christians themselves. Yeah. And the way the story began, Allah says that we relate to the best of stories. What includes I mean, probably laminal awfully. Even though before this, you were unaware of that. You are unaware of this the person seldom, the whole of Arabia was unaware of this. But now you have the story in front of you. Where did it come from? That's the question. Where did this come

00:07:51 --> 00:08:27

from? Exactly what library in Arabia housed this story? Which personnel they knew of it? How did this man Mohammed Salah Salem come to know about the story? The conclusion is only one which is it came from the heavens. Yeah, it is so obvious that Allah says, Well, how many science comes from from the scars of the earth, except that they deliberately step over it? Yeah. So this this, this meaning of people's attitudes towards Allah science, is repeated many times in the Koran and illustrates a particular trait in those people. What trait is illustrated in such people behave like this?

00:08:28 --> 00:09:13

arrogance, arrogance, this is what it teaches us that many people are very arrogant. Today, I watched the interview done by David Nash, and Brian in 2012. Very interested in how it is that this man, after the things he's seen in his life, is not a believer in Allah. Now, the there's a clip on YouTube, four minutes long. And the interview I like he slowly wants to ask him, Do you believe in God or not? So what he says that people say, you know, David, that you've, you've seen so many things, the way you speak about nature is almost as if you're in or have it a religious type of or wouldn't you say? He goes, yes, it's true is like a religious type of all. And then people say,

00:09:13 --> 00:09:21

Well, how comes that doesn't lead you then to appreciate the design and competent collusion that they must be an Almighty Creator?

00:09:24 --> 00:09:40

You know, why don't you say that? And now what happened is his response is very interesting. He doesn't say that he's an atheist, but at the same time, he doesn't say he's a believer. So he says that, the problem is that how do we understand, you know, in consistencies in the Bible, so so on and so forth. And then he said, however,

00:09:42 --> 00:09:59

the reason I don't call myself an atheist is because when I uncover a colony of termites, and I'm looking over them, and I see so many of them at work, building things, moving things, looking after the queen, transporting food, and all

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

them are blind. All of them are blind. I say to myself,

00:10:07 --> 00:10:09

perhaps there is someone looking over us in the same way as well.

00:10:11 --> 00:10:14

Yeah, but he goes, you know, I'm agnostic.

00:10:18 --> 00:10:52

I can't confidently say there isn't a God thing. So pantyliner What is this what he has seen of the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala. I think his designs come to people in different ways. People have near death experiences, it can happen someone's cycling to work. And you know, they came this close to being hit by car. Now, what happened to that person inside the field, something like well, could have been could have been dented, then they start to become very spiritual. They think about their life, purpose of life, and so on and so forth. And what happens is, most people, they say, you know,

00:10:53 --> 00:11:06

so Okay, got meetings go to you got to be thinking about these things right now. Today's was fun. Yesterday, my mother told me about a story. This sister, she was a Christian all of a life. And then she embraced Islam.

00:11:07 --> 00:11:22

My mother asked, How did you become Muslim? She said, Well, my dad wasn't that religious. My mother was very religious, strict Christian, as you always wanted us to be to be more practicing. But I was never sure of Christianity. So I used to ask God, to give me some guidance to give me a sign.

00:11:24 --> 00:11:47

And one day, she said it was raining outside and I went outside. And I saw a piece of paper in a puddle. And he had some writing on it. So I pulled it out. And I brought it home, showed it to my father. He said, Look, this looks like something he says from the Quran. So he said that we let it dry. And then we read it. And the first thing I read was in this are indeed Signs for those who reflect.

00:11:49 --> 00:11:51

And I said to myself, is this

00:11:52 --> 00:11:56

and she said, I got a copy of the Koran. I read it, and I became Muslim.

00:11:57 --> 00:12:02

I thought was partly the way Allah send science, sometimes they are tailor made for people,

00:12:03 --> 00:12:06

tailor made for people. Yet what is the reaction of many people,

00:12:08 --> 00:12:10

they turn away with their art

00:12:11 --> 00:12:19

turned away with a lot. Now, one of the interesting things about this verse is that Allah says that these signs came from not Allah.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:23

And not even around, but came from or be him.

00:12:24 --> 00:12:25

They are master.

00:12:26 --> 00:12:47

But it is talking about people who are disbelievers who reject God or reject that God should be worshipped and abate. Yet the verse says, No, those signs are coming from day Master, that Jesus asked that, number one, even a person rejects or lower these tongue, it doesn't mean he's no longer a slave.

00:12:48 --> 00:12:55

Secondly, why teaches us and this is a bit more deeper, is that they recognize the signs are coming from a law.

00:12:56 --> 00:13:11

Do you see this? They don't think the signs are just like, freak things are accidents or, you know, where did that come from? I have no idea. I have no idea where all these signs have come from. Rather, they know it is coming from Allah Minaya to be him.

00:13:13 --> 00:13:21

Despite acknowledging it is from the Creator, they still turn away from a las panatela now I was thinking about this, you know, between

00:13:22 --> 00:13:31

us human beings, one of the worst things we can do to one another, is when we're in argument, yeah. For the founder.

00:13:33 --> 00:13:41

Is that happened to you? You get in a heated argument, someone and you know what? I say? Yeah, and I'm gonna tell you something. Now, you're not gonna listen to us and be

00:13:42 --> 00:13:43

a follow up on me.

00:13:45 --> 00:14:11

Nothing infuriates people, by the way, women, that hurts more, okay? So any the idea of someone being a more added to you? I'm trying to tell you something. And look at the way you're dealing with you're turning, you turn your back on me. How infuriating is that for human beings? What then the case of Allah Subhana Allah bringing them things that will benefit them, save them from the Hellfire and they show their back to Allah.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:21

How displeasing must that be for last peloton. Despite that, a larger lie keeps on sending them signs which points towards his generosity soprano Darla,

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

What's up punku? No radiator there? No, it's not working.

00:14:27 --> 00:14:30

The budget the budget cuts is coming in now.

00:14:31 --> 00:14:32

We'll put on da Vinci.

00:14:34 --> 00:14:36

They said when is called that people listen to

00:14:38 --> 00:14:39

what they say.

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


00:14:42 --> 00:14:43


00:14:44 --> 00:14:59

What do you feel alone? Then the next verse number 47. Allah says and wait when it is said to them and spend your money in fact literally means to give your wealth for

00:15:00 --> 00:15:20

charitable cause? Why either pillow unfuckable me ma como la from that which Allah has provided you pay attention to the wording they are giving, they are being given a second piece of advice. The first piece of advice was about God. The second piece of advice is about people.

00:15:21 --> 00:15:41

Yeah, it seems to be not related to spirituality, but just related to a humanitarian course. second piece of advice is more of a humanitarian piece of advice. And that is spend from what Allah has provided you. Meaning on people on poor people are Latina, cafaro, Linda, Dina,

00:15:43 --> 00:15:53

the verse makes it very clear, who says this response, all and Latina care for those who disbelieved, say to those who believed?

00:15:54 --> 00:15:55

What did they say?

00:15:57 --> 00:16:00

No to anymore? Should we feed?

00:16:02 --> 00:16:04

Should we feed now when they're told to feed or whether to spend?

00:16:07 --> 00:16:21

They're taught to spend, doesn't it? But their responses? Why should we spend their responses? Why should we feed? But honestly, why that is the case later on? No, tengo should we feed those who if allow wanted, he could have fed them himself?

00:16:24 --> 00:16:27

Now, it's very clear that this is not really

00:16:28 --> 00:17:07

a reason they're giving for not being charitable. Rather, it is an excuse. They don't want to spend the money. But in order to avoid saying I don't want to give my money away to people, they come up with this second reason, this justification, which is well, if God wanted to, he could offend those poor people himself. If he doesn't, why should I? Right? Now, obviously, that smacks of arrogance. And it illustrates the arrogance. This is a this is one of the basic lessons, we learned that the response is that of arrogance. Yeah. However, there's something else. And that is the idea that sometimes human beings, they

00:17:10 --> 00:17:21

they say a truthful statement to make an invalid argument. They say a truthful statement to make an invalid argument. This is the idea of conflating two things together.

00:17:22 --> 00:17:39

Now, if I want you to feed them, could he feed them? Yes or no? Yes. Conclusion is what? Therefore I shouldn't be charitable. correct or incorrect? Incorrect. Yes. Is what they say in Arabic, Kenny will help a true Word.

00:17:41 --> 00:18:03

Your duty to Allah about being used to indicate something false. This is the and this happens a lot in the world that we live in all the time. In fact, arguments are made which are false, but they use true facts to try and prove them. Yeah, this is an example of something that is happening long time ago this what people used to say.

00:18:04 --> 00:18:26

Now there's interesting story. abubaker Sadiq is giving money could be underrated this he's giving money to poor people. He's going out there giving sadaqa Abuja who comes along and he says to him, are you giving Southern part to these people? He says, Yes. He said, doesn't allow provide for everyone. He said, Yes. He goes in Why do you provide for them?

00:18:28 --> 00:18:44

our brokenness addict said Allah gives to some, and he withholds to others. As for those who gives, it is upon them to provide for those who are poor, as for those who are poor, it is upon them to have suffered. This is the way of a Lost Planet.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:48

So he, he wasn't,

00:18:49 --> 00:19:01

you know, he wasn't taken aback by the false logic of Abuja. Rather, he was able to correct him and tell him that Look, don't get two things confused. I know what you're saying is, well, what you're saying is absolutely false.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:04

Another Animal Man, Lucia, Allahu Akbar, Allah.

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

You know, this.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:15

This, there's so many parallels to this. In our times, people make false arguments, for example,

00:19:17 --> 00:19:30

about sexual orientation. I am born a particular orientation. Therefore, there's nothing wrong with me saying that I am homosexual is not what people say in our times. In fact, this is the main argument

00:19:31 --> 00:19:59

often offered and propagated by, you know, the lobbyists for LGBT that people are born homosexual, therefore, no one can say it is wrong. Even if their religion says that it is wrong. If they say it's wrong themselves, then that's wrong. They're not allowed to. And if they do, we will classify them as being homophobic. And if they hold any positions in work to do with other people, then

00:20:00 --> 00:20:13

We will ask those institutions not to give them those jobs. Perhaps we will even take them to court, put them in jail and so on and so forth. Yeah, this is the situation that we live in at this moment in time. However, let's take a step back.

00:20:16 --> 00:21:03

You know, our children in school, this is exactly what they are talking about the way people are born gay. Okay. Therefore, there's nothing wrong with it. Now, children, how, how have they respond to that? They've been told all their life. Islam says that it is haram. But now teachers saying that people are born this way. Okay, so it's nothing wrong with it. What should we tell our children? In fact, what should we tell ourselves? When it comes to this argument? I was looking in the Koran, is it the case that people before used to make such arguments in particular about sexual ethics and I found a verse inside certain are off. Allah says that way, the third

00:21:05 --> 00:21:11

way, the third infatuation orlu were generally Allahu emiliana via

00:21:12 --> 00:21:30

look at this verse. Allah says that when they will do fascia, which means shameful deeds of a sexual nature, usually in the Quran, Felicia relates to doing something which is sexually deviant. Yeah, when they would do sexually deviant things, what would they say?

00:21:31 --> 00:21:48

They would say two reasons. Number one reason is our forefathers used to do this. Okay. You're telling us is wrong plan everyone. Does it. Wake up as a 21st century Do you know everyone's got a girlfriend? People got boyfriends bla bla, bla.

00:21:49 --> 00:22:13

You using is wrong? They will say our forefathers did this. Why saying is wrong. Now the second reason is even more interesting. The first one. The second reason is, while long Mr. Anaya Allah made us, Allah ordered us to do this. Now if you replace the word God with DNA, you have folded yourself to the 21st century

00:22:14 --> 00:22:33

isn't it? We would say What do you mean? My DNA is like this one? Are you telling me is wrong? My DNA dictates I'm like this, you know? So the man in this man in the white overalls told me that is part of my DNA. Therefore, why do you think is wrong?

00:22:35 --> 00:22:51

Now what is is beautiful is that this is already mentioned 14 138 years ago. So people could listen to the argument, understand it and be ready for it when it comes in different forms later on in their lives. Yeah.

00:22:52 --> 00:22:54

Now what is the response to this?

00:22:56 --> 00:23:01

The first response is the response in this verse. Allah says in the continuation of that verse

00:23:04 --> 00:23:29

in the light layer, neurobiol fascia. Allah never orders people to do shameful deeds. God never ordered told anyone to do shameful deeds. Yeah, you're conflating between your inclination and the instruction of God. Just because you're inclined to do something. That doesn't mean God wants you to do.

00:23:30 --> 00:24:01

In fact, in sort of use of doesn't either use of all the ladies say, in the nafsa, the amount in the zoo, indeed, the soul inclines towards evil, the soul inclines towards evil. Every human soul has that dark side to it wants to do bad things has impulses. Now you're going to say, well, it's part of my enough's that have an impulse to review, therefore, I'm going to review and don't say it's wrong as part of my knifes that, you know,

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


00:24:04 --> 00:24:05

punch you in the face or

00:24:06 --> 00:24:10

don't say, how much advice because, you know, I was born that way.

00:24:11 --> 00:24:17

No, say that man, you know, who is charged for domestic violence, he can't come to court and say, Look,

00:24:18 --> 00:24:59

part of my DNA is that I am predisposed to violent behavior. Okay, so therefore, I you cannot take me to court for beating my wife. Now, we're not equating wife beating with homosexuality. But we are equating the idea that someone cannot say I'm born this way, being used as justification for anything they want to do in the life. You know, Islamic position, homosexuality is very clear. And Islamic position regarding the argument is also very clear now, that who draws the lines in morality is Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam whether or not a person feels

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

inclination towards something or not, is besides the point

00:25:05 --> 00:25:40

the lines of morality are given already by for us in Islam, therefore the person says is born with this or not born with it. It is not a justification for anything. Yeah. Is that clear? Yeah. So this is something we can teach our children as well, that sometimes people they say that we're born with things therefore we can, however, look at you. You could say to me that you love sweets that is part of your DNA. Therefore, Mommy, don't tell me all kind of sweets. And I will say to you really go to you

00:25:41 --> 00:25:52

go to expect I wouldn't accept that from you. So we need to think about these things shall learn teach our children because they are really coming into contact with many species arguments are there may Allah protect and preserve them all.

00:25:56 --> 00:26:33

In anthem, Illa, Allah Allah Moby and then the verse ends by saying, in anthem, you are only in clear misguidance Who says you are only in clarius guidance. If nathalia, a scholar of the sixth century said either This is the statement of those disbelievers to the believers. They finishing off by saying, you know, telling us to give charity, you guys are messed up. Or it is a statement of Allah. Allah is sealing the verse with his with a commentary with a comment and that is these faithful look at what they said they are clearly misguided. Yeah, both of them.

00:26:35 --> 00:26:40

You know, both makes sense either way you look at it. And the last one of those best, is a question though, my brothers.

00:26:41 --> 00:26:53

And this question was on my mind for a long time. And that is why does Allah subhanaw taala tell us that when these people are advised, spend your money?

00:26:55 --> 00:27:13

Then their response is given but in between that Allah says Allah Zina cafaro Linda, Dina amarula, the disbelievers say to the believers, why is that extra piece of information inserted inside the verse had a law said when they are advised to spend, they say,

00:27:14 --> 00:27:28

why should we spend for a law could take care of those people instead of law says when they are told the disbelievers say to the believers, if allowed, he could have said to himself, what do you think?

00:27:29 --> 00:27:32

What purpose does the words vocabulary in a cafe?

00:27:33 --> 00:27:34

Serve? Yes.

00:27:42 --> 00:27:43

Say that again.

00:27:50 --> 00:27:56

Okay, very good. The brother said, does it? Does it show that those words that came afterwards?

00:27:57 --> 00:27:59

They could only be said by a disbeliever?

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

Yeah, yes or no? Okay. Nice to know.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:05


00:28:32 --> 00:28:36

Okay, so you're saying that the statement is being tied with disbelief?

00:28:37 --> 00:28:38

Yep. Yeah, I agree.

00:28:40 --> 00:28:48

But, but yeah, that only answers half the question. Because Carla, you know, cafaro. Linda, Dina.

00:28:49 --> 00:28:54

So you said as for Callie, the capital A lot of time the disbelief to the statement we're about?

00:28:56 --> 00:28:57

Yep. Maybe

00:29:01 --> 00:29:08

it's obvious. It's obvious to people that advising them all the believers and do other volunteers previous? Yep.

00:29:20 --> 00:29:23

Okay, no one said that. But the first thing.

00:29:29 --> 00:29:31

Now, don't worry about what the brother said. You say what you want to say was that?

00:29:33 --> 00:29:34


00:29:37 --> 00:29:38


00:29:41 --> 00:29:42

It's okay. We're not talking about

00:29:44 --> 00:29:51

anyone else. Why? Why is it you know, that allegedly, I said that those who disbelieve say to those who believe that.

00:29:53 --> 00:29:58

By that I don't extra words like what purpose do they serve? It's clear that the display was saying to the videos.

00:30:03 --> 00:30:04


00:30:07 --> 00:30:16

Okay, interesting. The discourse between the believers and disbelievers is of this nature where the disbelievers they try to go all the way to

00:30:17 --> 00:30:49

put down the believers and their beliefs. Okay, I agree. Yeah, this is true. And this is also a point that was made by one of the scholars. I'm not sure who that he said that the the kuffaar here they are mocking the believers by saying you believe a lie is a Rosa. Look at this. Yeah, look at this poll people and use it up. This is this is the meaning disbelievers would say this to believers. mockery. Anything else? Yes.

00:31:02 --> 00:31:06

It's true that we're trying to say to the right, you're wrong. Why are you telling us that we should spend our money?

00:31:09 --> 00:31:30

Okay, well, law I mean, it seems as though the reason is, as some of the brothers mentioned, a lie is tying this statement to arrogance, and the rejection of advice to the theology of the person who said it. Who said these words, just note one thing, and Lena, careful, those who disbelieved said these words.

00:31:31 --> 00:31:35

And the ones who gave the advice, gave that advice because of the man.

00:31:36 --> 00:31:52

Yeah, it is both. The fact that they believed led them to give the advice, and the fact that those who disbelieved led them to give that statement. Does that make sense? Yeah, I lost my nose best. But it's interesting anyway, to think about these things.

00:31:53 --> 00:31:58

The other question was they told to spend and they say, we're not going to feed. What does that teach us?

00:32:00 --> 00:32:02

They told unfuckable they say no to

00:32:03 --> 00:32:07

the total spend. They don't they say chubby feet.

00:32:08 --> 00:32:10

Is it possible to turn up we always go to extremes.

00:32:14 --> 00:32:17

Why didn't they say why should we spend? They said Why should we speed?

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


00:32:22 --> 00:32:23

this may be indicated.

00:32:31 --> 00:32:33

Maybe, maybe you have anyone else.

00:32:34 --> 00:32:38

Why should we feed? Well, you told the spindle? Yep.

00:32:44 --> 00:32:46

diverting natural question.

00:32:55 --> 00:32:55


00:32:57 --> 00:32:58

Okay, maybe

00:33:00 --> 00:33:22

you remember Rosie, he said that. The reason why they responded I notice is to show the miserliness because not giving food is more miserly than not giving money. I give you super poor person on the street homeless, and you carry your Mashallah donica back home. And the guy's like, please, man just need four days. You're

00:33:26 --> 00:33:41

not even gonna feed him. You know, that's what happens if someone comes to you not sure. is the guy rooting for real is not for real. So what do you say? Look, I'll buy you lunch. And then when he says, nice work, just give me the money. Yeah, okay. I know, I know. I've seen your time before.

00:33:42 --> 00:33:51

So giving money is easier for a person than give. Sorry, giving food is easier than giving money. They said we're not even gonna give food. Forget about money.

00:33:52 --> 00:34:02

Forget about money. They said mama Rosie said that this highlights their book that they said they're not even prepared to feed, let alone to give money or as father knows best.

00:34:03 --> 00:34:06

There is number of lessons we learned from this passage. The first lesson is

00:34:08 --> 00:34:11

one of the root causes of Kufa is Cuba.

00:34:12 --> 00:34:55

Yeah, one of the root causes of disbelief is arrogance. How do we learn this from this from this passage? Because almost 100 said that these people, they're very arrogant. When they are given advice. They would reject it, ignore it, and even mock people who would give that advice. This is arrogance, but not tired. All of that to their disbelief and living in a cathedral. As if to say that people's disbelief is a manifestation of the arrogance. Yeah, it seems as though in the Quran there are two root causes to disbelief. The first is arrogance. The second one is desire. how a person is told about Islam explained. In fact, the person is pretty much convinced that you know

00:34:55 --> 00:34:58

what, this is the truth. But they say you know what?

00:35:00 --> 00:35:19

I don't like the restrictions that your religion brings to my life. I don't like the fact that I'm gonna have to give up trading drugs, women, these kind of things. Yeah, and this is a common response from some people as well. And it just shows that the desire that they have the temptations, is what is holding you back from FEMA.

00:35:21 --> 00:35:41

second lesson is, our money is not really ours. Now, where do we learn this from? our money is not really ours. Look at this verse. The advice was either Taylor, Taylor Taylor loan and FICO mi merasa kakula. When they are told to spend from what Allah has provided you,

00:35:42 --> 00:35:52

they weren't told spend your money. They were told spend from what Allah has given you. Do you see the difference? The difference is that they are being told

00:35:53 --> 00:36:28

indirectly that even the money that you have set you are hoarding is not even yours. Allah gave it to you. Yeah, Allah is the one who gave you that money. Now Ally's asking you to spend it, and you're not going to spend it. That's even worse, right. And this is a very good attitude to have my brothers and sisters towards your own wealth, say Tom will come, and he will stop you from giving sadaqa one of the ways you overcome those whispers is you say, the money in my pocket right now. In actuality, it is a loss. Allah has gifted it to me, I am an agent, someone in the middle.

00:36:29 --> 00:36:46

Allah is the one who owns his wealth. He gave it to me in order to use it for particular things. And now the one who owns it is telling me spend it on this course. How can I withhold it? This money is not even mine. Yeah, very powerful way of change your attitude towards money, it is not yours, it belongs our last part of

00:36:48 --> 00:37:35

another lesson we learn is Do not be fooled by false logic. People bring false logic to make arguments, which are completely, utterly and Islamic, false, immoral, unethical. And many of us we, we get diluted, do you become gullible to these type of arguments, but as Muslims, we should be smart. We should be smart. And this is critical thinking, you know, the education system, the state education system is not geared towards making people critical thinkers. It's not. That's what private education is about. What are the big differences between private education and state is private is about developing a critical mind? Am I right about this or not? Yeah. Critical. I mean,

00:37:36 --> 00:37:43

one of my relatives, he went to Oxford and then to Cambridge recently changed it because he said people Oxford, so

00:37:45 --> 00:37:46

was a word that he used.

00:37:48 --> 00:37:51

What's that word? We know when people they look down others?

00:37:52 --> 00:37:53

Not obnoxious.

00:37:54 --> 00:38:33

But yes, they are very snobbish. He said, Yeah, very snobbish people. So he said, he went to Cambridge instead. Now, he told me that the interview process is very interesting kind of question they asked you, and throw at you during those interviews are very interesting. He said, they're not interested in what you know. But they're interested in how you can analyze information and your character. So he said, one of the questions they asked me at Oxford was Imagine you're the mayor of a town, and there's an outbreak. There's an outbreak of plague here. And your job is to contain that plague. What are you going to do?

00:38:34 --> 00:38:43

What? What does that got to do with the course of applying to you, but they want to see your response. And, you know, the type of response you want to see is not

00:38:45 --> 00:39:08

Oh, I would do X, Y, and Z and just stop being elaborate and just, you know, just wing it, as they say. They want to see some character when someone says, I've never imagined myself in that situation, what resources would I have to deal with the situation? Interesting, I see. You're not going to cave into the pressure. In fact, you willing to ask questions, confidence. And so you can see that

00:39:09 --> 00:39:13

there is a different level of education being given them.

00:39:14 --> 00:39:57

So the Quran it teaches us to be critical thinkers, yeah, not to be deluded by false logic, to look at things and the substance behind it. The last lesson we learned from this passage is that Allah takes care of some through others. Lust takes care of some through others, how Allah has decreed for some people to be poor and some people to be rich. However, he is also instructed people to give charity, which means that a lot takes care of people in different ways. Sometimes he asked we send some people to look after others. Therefore if you are the recipient of help, if you are in a bad way, someone came to you and helped you out. Not only should you thank that person, but you should

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

thank Allah. Allah is the one who sent that person.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:48

To your thank Allah as well as that person. Okay, we'll take one more verse in Sharla. passage number five, the second last passage of soldier scene. We will call this passage the blind on the Day of Judgment. Soldier. See now we'll fast forward and almost transport us to yomo pm. And it will speak about the fate of such people. What is the connection between Yokoyama and the fate of the disbelievers? And what came before one of the connections is that people who are blind to the truth, stubborn and arrogant, the only thing left to do is to tell them you know what, if you continue like this on your piano, you're gonna regret it. If you continue like this, you will regret it, you will

00:40:48 --> 00:41:08

face unbelievable pain, torture and suffering. This is all that is left is to tell you about your PM, and this was hilarious, he will do now it will speak about yo pm. So it begins way Apolo no matter how to solve the pain, and they say, when will this promise be fulfilled? If what you say is true?

00:41:10 --> 00:41:47

Again, a dialogue? Who is saying these words, disbelievers? Who did they say them to believers? What do they say? Why aku Luna, the word way of toluna is in the present tense, which shows something is being repeated. It's It is said often it is not said once in a blue moon, even this verse is repeated seven times in the Quran waiuku no matter how they are doing come to saw the theme. So they would often say to the believers matter has worked. When is this promise? What is the promise? they're referring to him?

00:41:49 --> 00:41:52

What is the promise? What are they being promised?

00:41:59 --> 00:42:08

The Day of Judgment, anything in particular? punishment? They are being promised punishment? And they say in response, or when is it coming?

00:42:09 --> 00:42:15

Yes. Bring on exactly. They literally would say already? Where is it?

00:42:16 --> 00:42:19

Where is it? Like in sort of,

00:42:21 --> 00:42:23

sort of the national day begins.

00:42:25 --> 00:42:27

At under law, at

00:42:28 --> 00:42:29

the statue loo.

00:42:31 --> 00:43:02

The effect of a law has already come. Meaning the Day of Judgment, without a shadow of a doubt is going to happen. fell out the statue, so don't try and haste in it. Meaning Don't be so obnoxious to ask questions like, when is it going to come and show us? Yeah. So this is very interesting, because not only does it highlight to us, the arrogance of those people. It also shows us what the believers would say to those disbelief

00:43:04 --> 00:43:06

what they would say, when talking about Islam.

00:43:08 --> 00:43:34

And of course, this is a surah that was revealed late in Makkah, which means a lot of Tao has been going on for many years. What they would say is look if you don't listen, and you don't heed to the truth, even though you know is the truth. You know what is going to be a punishment coming to you and you will regret this you will be punished there is hellfire. Yeah. And they are unspeakable torture is happening inside hellfire. It is promised to you.

00:43:36 --> 00:43:37

This is the kind of download they will be given.

00:43:38 --> 00:43:45

Now, how many of us have ever said something remotely similar to someone we have been given Dougie?

00:43:47 --> 00:43:50

In fact, it is politically incorrect to say such things, isn't it?

00:43:52 --> 00:43:58

To say look, you know, we've spoken about Islam from good flowers now. You said it makes sense.

00:43:59 --> 00:44:10

You know, if you don't listen, people would refuse to listen, they go into the Hellfire they burned. Now I don't want a fee. I don't want you to burn in the hellfire. It's gonna be terrible. No one's gonna come to help you.

00:44:12 --> 00:44:13

Allah is not gonna speak to you.

00:44:15 --> 00:44:16

What happened? You said?

00:44:18 --> 00:44:19

What did he say?

00:44:23 --> 00:44:25

He agrees many things when I

00:44:28 --> 00:44:29

was my son was trying to

00:44:37 --> 00:44:38

Yes, yes.

00:44:45 --> 00:44:46

Yes. And

00:44:48 --> 00:44:59

yes. Well, if you said this, if you said this, then you have implemented a Quranic wisdom. Yeah, because this is the wisdom of the Koran is highlighted to us.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:38

How you should give out to people in stages, there is rewards, but there's also punishments. Okay, when it comes down to it, you have to be willing to speak about both. And in fact, what may be more effective is the warning as opposed to the reward. Now times, you know, as pilot people very rarely speak about Hellfire, even in Muslim circles, don't speak about how people are not gonna listen, people are gonna run away people are gonna get put off this morbid visitor is morbid to talk about death and talk about peace and love. Peace and love and food and health and well being and peace and love.

00:45:39 --> 00:45:48

Okay, we can but what about all these verses in the for Allah who is supposed to do with all these verses about Day of Judgment Hellfire and punishment? Like we're just gonna

00:45:49 --> 00:45:52

go to the next page for now inshallah. You know,

00:45:54 --> 00:46:04

he's so clear in the Koran that both need to speak spoken about, at different times with wisdom with care, compassion, but they need to be delivered. Yeah, they need to be delivered.

00:46:05 --> 00:46:53

So the words heard the word this promise. Some of the scholars said the wording here illustrates mockery. Not when is the promise coming? But what is this promise coming? Like this? Really? Yeah, that's the type of connotations to the word higher than that of mockery. In con two sided thing, if you really are telling the truth, if you really honoring the truth, again, this shows us that one of the core messages that we're giving been given by the Muslims to the non Muslims was here after here after centric meaning, it wasn't about this life and the benefits of Islam in this life but about the benefits of Islam in the hereafter. Yeah, it's a very important lesson, especially in today's

00:46:53 --> 00:47:13

times where the Muslim community is being demonized and being spoken against the question arises, so what have the Muslims done for the UK Anyway, what was the UK what is the Muslims, what have the Muslims done, British Muslims done for the people of the UK anyway? Now, when that question is posed, many people they say, well,

00:47:15 --> 00:47:27

Muslims brought the Enlightenment to mankind, the maths and sciences and so on and so forth. They have benefited mankind with so many things. So some campers will say that was in the past.

00:47:29 --> 00:47:50

In the past, what about now, you know, why we brought to us now, the person is stuck there. Why? Because his understanding of what Muslims should bring to society is a materialistic secular understanding, rather than the standing of the early Muslims was Islam came to bring Felicity in the hereafter.

00:47:51 --> 00:48:21

And by consequence, peace in this life, but the main objective is to save you from the Hellfire and to paradise. This is what Islam brings to the world, salvation from the Hellfire and there is no nothing more beneficial and compassionate and then the deliverance of evil in the hellfire. Am I right or wrong? Yeah. So when people are asked what did Muslims bring to the world? Say what was seen to bring is a piece of advice was saved from the hellfire. Do you know anyone else can do that?

00:48:22 --> 00:48:30

Now listen to the advice. Yeah, this is the way we should be. Otherwise some last syllable and hamadryad earlier such as rain desert, hold our head by the clock.
