Okay. We've been studying the verses last time, which were describing the people of misconducts. And in those verses, and also depicted their spiritual states, and the idea was that they are some people, they are so bent on disbelief
because of arrogance and pride, that what happens to them is that they become spiritually deformed. And that was depicted to us in that verse where I was saying these people are like prisoners in nirjala Fianna to Allah Allah, that they are prisoners, they have a shackle around their neck, which extends all the way to the cheekbones and their hands are bound to those shackles as well. Meaning spiritually they are unable to see the truth. Yeah, they are unable to see the truth, even if it was right up close to them, which are alarming. baney at him said don't worry unhealthy and said and all around there are barriers, meeting barriers, stopping them seeing right from wrong. And then what
happens is this verse comes now verse number 10. And Allah either concludes that discussion about those people by saying what's around Allah, him and that emblem? You know, it's all the same to them, whether you advise them whether you want them or you don't, they are not believing. Yeah, they are not believing. Now, the interesting thing about this is how relevant it is to our times in our society, Rahim Allah, when he was commenting on this verse, he said, How in the world are they going to see the truth? When they see what is true as false? And what is false is true? Yeah. How in the world are they going to believe so he said, what they see right is wrong and wrong is right. And
you're today Spanner. I saw an article, it was about this lady, this lady, she became famous in 1945. In America, she was a student, and she was walking through Times Square. And that was the same time where the Marines were coming home from World War Two and celebrating. Yeah, the Americans were celebrating. And what happened is, then is a little bit a
little bit messy to speak about this. But anyway, I'm just going to lay in a general way that one of the Marines, he comes up to this lady, he doesn't even know who she is, and he grabs her, and he imposes himself on her. And he kisses her. Right? And what happens is that somebody takes a photograph of this shot. And what happens is this photograph becomes iconic. Yeah, because they find, then that this was a celebration of patriotism. This man comes home, fighting a great battle for America. And it's all over now. And he's Americanism, his patriotism overwhelms him. And he goes ahead, and he does something like this to a complete stranger. And this picture was celebrated
worldwide. What happened is today, that lady passed away. Yeah, that lady passed away.
And people reviewing her life and spoke about that picture, that iconic picture. And today people are saying, actually, that wasn't a celebration of patriotism. That was sexual assault.
That was sexual assault. This guy went off to somebody else and just kissed against the wall. She didn't consent to that that was that was a crime wasn't something to be happy about. And that shows us how the lines and morality always changing where we did something that was said to be amazingly good.
is now set to be incredibly bad today, who knows about tomorrow, right? There's so many examples of this is just an example that came about today. So Sally says, Look, these people that have arrogance and pride, they don't want to submit themselves to the worship of Allah.
It isn't, you know, it has an impact on them. One of the impacts is that Allah punishes them, and they are unable to see right from wrong. And this happens to the degree that a person shows that arrogance, which means it could happen to any one of us. So that is like, the conclusion of this is this passage of this versus these three verses. So let's look at this verse in a bit more detail or so well, when
Allah says, it is the same on them, whether you want them or you don't want them, they are not going to be here, there's a linguistic nuance, and that is, Allah said, it is the same Ali him to them, and he didn't say was around alika, it is the same on you. The difference is this, if Allah had said, it is the same to you, whether you want them or not, it would have meant there's not there's no point wanting them anymore, doesn't make any difference what you do, rather sad to the same upon them, meaning, you still need to warn them. But most of them, they're not going to listen to you doesn't make any difference whether you want them or you don't want them. Yes, it's a linguistic
nuance here. And it also shows us that again, the person is being reassured from one side that they're not listening to you, not because of you. It's not because you're not doing a good job, or you're not competent, or so on and so forth. It's because of them, therefore don't, you know, beat yourself up over them, don't become frustrated. Because it's not you It's them. But at the same time, by not telling the person who those people are still being told they still need to continue the court, you still need to continue to call. And
now, the other thing
of the discussion there is on this verse, is that, when is it appropriate for someone to say, Listen, I have advised that person enough now, I should stop advising them. Right? You know, sometimes you advise someone they don't listen. So you maybe try another approach. You might try another project, get somebody else to get involved, and so on and so forth. That person is not going to listen.
Sometimes what happens is that the person gets so frustrated with you.
They say, you know what, if you keep advisory, I'm gonna do more.
Some children, mom and dad say don't do this, even though they don't want to do they go and do? Yeah, that rebellious type of attitude. So you have some people who don't listen, and they're not listening? Should you continue to advise them? What about those people who you advise and you know, what they do is that they do the same more because you advise them here on Earth. Damien said that, the verse in Surah, Allah, Allah says, For the kid in the fat is the Quran. So remind in if the reminder is going to benefit teaches us something. It teaches us, according to some scholars that if someone's not listening to what you're saying, then there's no point advising them anymore. However,
some scholars, they counter that and they say, though, that person may not benefit, you know, who will benefit other people, that they see that this person keeps on being advised, which means he's doing something wrong, and he's not listening. So let's be aware of this person. Yeah, he's stubborn. He's persistent. So there's still a benefit. He's saying, Yeah, those people are saying there's still a benefit. Even if that person isn't listening. The audience may be listening. However, there are a famous said that if a person is going ahead and doing more since because you're advising them, then in that case, don't advise him anymore. Yeah. And this makes sense because you
don't know how to answer them. He says in a complaint to Allah after 950 years of advising these people, I mean, if anyone had a right to say, I'm going to give up on people, it was Nautilus. Just think about 950 years.
You know, the thing is that
if anyone was rude to us, we want to see them ever again, isn't it?
No, hello, as Ron says, I kept going to those rude obnoxious people over and over again. Laila, Juana hora, nighttime and daytime, in public and in secret, I approach them, you know, a public and secret I will approach them individually as a collective as well. I tried every single means possible. And then he said, Every time I call them, it only increases them in Fira. He only increases them in running away. Yeah, so it's got to a point where they're not just saying, I'm not gonna listen to you. If you tell me, I'm going to do it more. Yeah, so it came to that point, then he continues to another. What should I do now? They're not listening to me. Okay. So perhaps this
is, you know, where we can draw the line where you stop advising someone when and if they are continuing to do that thing even more because of you, or in spite of you, perhaps
And almost father knows best. This is also a lesson for parents as well, you know, because sometimes this happens to our children,
we advise them, but instead of listening to do the exact opposite, yeah, someone shouldn't say, therefore that you know what, it's my duty to continue to advise them. So I'm going to keep on doing it, even if they behave badly because of it. Rather than just say, now the responsibility is to benefit the person. And if you cannot benefit them, rather, you are, in fact harming them, then it may be like what Allah said is off. While I said, Do not insult the idols of the mushy raccoon, because because of you insulting their idols, they will insult Allah subhanaw taala, which means that you have become the cause of evil. Yeah, though, you think you're doing something good, you
actually, what you're doing is you're causing evil to spread. So Allah knows best. And this verse, Therefore teaches two lessons, the first lesson he teaches us is prepared to see the same behavior. Yeah, people who do Tao and do well and properly, they should expect to see the same type of behavior, meaning you're going to meet some really obnoxious people. They're gonna listen to you. And doesn't matter how hard you try, they are just going to
ignore you. They're gonna listen to you not gonna accept it from you. And that's important. Because sometimes, you know, when people get into that world, they start trying to spread the message of Islam, be that online person, so on so forth, then the first time they met with opposition, they find it incredibly frustrating. What do you mean, you don't want to believe? What do you mean? How can you insult our Prophet? How can you start Omar Can you call our religion backwards, so on and so forth? They become overly frustrated, they might start to think that they are, they are doing something wrong. Yeah. They might even stop doing what they say maybe it's not for me, people don't
listen to me. But to them, we say listen, there was no one who could do better than the processor down who had more articulate speech, no one who was more intelligent, no one who was had better character than the process. So if he faced opposition, then what about the rest of us? Yeah, what about the rest of us? However, what we can add to that? Is that the process sediment all the province they tried in many different ways. If one way wasn't working, they will just try another way. Yeah, they would just try another way.
The second important point, is never to lose hope in people. And the reason I say this, is because a lot of how the certain person is the same on them, whether you own them or not, but he never told him who those people are. Why? Because he has to still continue to preach to them with the expectation that most of them are not going to listen. Yeah. Which means that he can't say this one here. He's not gonna listen. I don't know who's not gonna listen. Only Allah knows. Therefore, I cannot lose hope and anyone. Notice upon some people, they are so evil, you think shape on one autograph from them
is so evil. I mean, you don't have a good bone in their body. Yeah, like for their own the worst of the worst. But the fact is that you cannot rule out a person ever been guided. And this was taught even to the processor. This fly loves me.
Follow me today.
In the battle, often the lie This is amazing.
You know that at one point in the battle, the most of them was left stranded all by himself. And the price caught wind that this was the process sort of because he had armor on and this was warfare. His identity was masked, but they found out and they came after him. And one of them in the Permian. He threw a rock at the process seldom had a hit him hit him on the head, and it results in two injuries of them was he had gashed
lips, his lift lifts became gashed blood started coming out and a tooth became broken as well. He fell to the ground one ration unconscious when he came around, and he saw that his face is bleeding to lower cillum he wiped the blood from his face and he said okay, so you flee her palm? How will a nation prosper? when they when they
when they wound his face, and they break his motor tooth? whilst he is calling them to Allah? How do you say Muslim? And that Allah reprimanded the person in Surah, Allah Milan and said, lay Salah, kameena Emery Shay, you have no right to be speaking in this matter. What does that mean? It means when the first thing you said How old is he will prosper he was saying they're not going to go to heaven.
If anyone had a right to say that at that moment, it wouldn't person right. Allah said no, you don't have a right to say that. The only one who can say that
Is this me. And what is even more amazing is that, who was the general of the machinery Kuhn at Beaufort, who was the general
he wasn't the General
sofiane was a general.
And who was in charge of the battalion, who managed to come round and attack the Muslims, resulting in all suffering hot bullets, both of the soufiane and how we become Muslim later on
laser memory shape, you don't know who is going to turn when they're going to turn your job is to communicate the truth, to the best of your ability and leave the rest of the last panatela never pass judgment on anyone, which is very difficult. When you think about the tyrants of the world, and the kind of killings people have done, and the coffer of people, so on and so forth. But even those people, you know, that we criticize, and though we would challenge that we would work to bring about change, and those people
we can ever say they're going to help
and we can ever say they don't deserve to go to heaven, I'd
rather we say that Allah knows best their fate, we will try our best to, to, to, to guide those people. You're not going to be God We ask Allah to to stop the evil affecting anyone but themselves.
They Okay, any questions on that verse before we go to the next verse?
Any questions on that list? No. Okay, the next verse Now the discussion turns.
We've spoken about who will not listen, why they will not listen.
The why they won't benefit from advice and so on and so forth. That discussion come to now the focus will turn to who will listen after latanoprost to them, who will not listen then he tells them who will listen. The people that will listen and who will believe and who will be guided. This verse tells us they have two special qualities, which is actually telling us that if we want to be guaranteed the guidance of a law you need to have these two qualities inside of you. Yeah, so Allah says in the mountains Euromonitor article Asha vamana belief about should who be mocked for doing what Algerian Karim?
Allah says that the only ones who will who you can warn him everything means said it means the only ones who will benefit from your warning is the one who follows the remembers. And number two, the one who fails the whole merciful in the unseen. So go ahead and congratulate that one person on forgiveness and a noble reward. Yeah, forgiveness and overrode the verse begins with the word innama. Which gives a sense of what they call exclusivity. Only. The only people are gonna listen to you are the following.
And the verse doesn't speak about the group of people who will listen, it speaks about the one person who will listen. Yeah, which is, which is again, you know, kind of like, in tandem with the previous verse, because the previous of the saying, all those people who are not going to listen, there are prisoners inside a soul that constitute the truth and so on. And so we're not going to believe you're listening. Nobody listen to you, but the one who will listen or the one. So from all those people, the only people that are going to believe are just a few, just a few in number. And those people have this quality. Number one,
they follow the vicar Iran, the Saudi said What does that mean? It means that those people as to who they aim in life are one of the aims in life is to follow the truth and its ramifications are what entails there are some people in life. They
they have a good conscious, yeah, they want to do the right thing in life. Sometimes they want to do it even at the cost of harming themselves. Yeah, they want to do the right thing, even if it means against their own interest you meet those people, upstanding people. So he's saying that the first type of person, the first trait in this person, is that generally in life they want to do the right thing. They want to follow the truth. Okay. And the second quality is Harsha Rama builder. This is very interesting. The second quality is that this person has not yet a Muslim who will become a Muslim is the one who face the old merciful and the unseen.
What does that mean? It means that this person
either has two interpretations, the first is that when they are by themselves, and no one is around at that moment when most people misbehave and do whatever they want. They're thinking about a lot. They're concerned about Allah subhanaw taala on their mind is Allah. Yeah, their concern is a loss. Either way.
About a loss pattern. The second interpretation is that they fail a lot, even though they've never seen him.
They've never seen a loss funnel, but yet, they believe in him and they fail him. When those two qualities come together, they're ready to follow the truth and they are wary about Allah, then you know what all that remains is for the remember is for the advice of the person to come to them, or the person to reach them. And how long do you have email? Yeah, philosophy man. Now looking at this a bit in a bit more detail the scholars, most of them Firstly, when they say a vicar refers to put on here, the ones who will follow the Quran
Why didn't he call it the port on? Well, there's four names for the Quran inside the port on the first of the port on anyone know the other three?
What is the Quran referred to? Besides Al Quran? It is called
a vicar? Yes.
alphapharm in order, it's actually a report on Al Kitab al Furqan. And a decoder. I'm not sure about the last two which one comes first. But this is the format name. So the Quran is called as decode. What does that mean? It means the reminder. Yeah, the reminder. So the idea is that the Quran is bringing a message which is an alien to human beings, they already know these things, in a general sense, the Quran is coming to remind them about that. Yeah, it is already intuitive. Inside a human being what the Quran speaks about. This is not something which doesn't make sense. Rather, it is something natural. This is lunala neurological light phenomenological light. So this is why they say
in the tone through Manitoba article is that these people are ready to follow the Quran, meaning they really do follow what the Quran stands for. Or the Quran speaks about. The idea is the Quran presents those ideas, they are already ready to listen to them. Yeah. Interestingly, here, even Arthur I mean, he said it to bear to follow. It doesn't just mean
he said it means two things it means that you listen, and you will do. Yeah, you know, sometimes people listen to advice. And they will nod their heads. Yes. Really good. Yeah, yeah. You're so right. Very true. Yeah. Next day, person do the same thing. After you agree with me yesterday? like yeah, you know,
this is it back. it devalues. Yes. And I'm going to do that now. Yeah. So they are ready to listen and live by the Quran? And the second is the relationship with a law. Yeah, sir.
The relationship of law is that they are people already thinking about law. And this reflects on the fifth round. We said this before as well. That's fine.
That every inside everything human being there is a fifth law with the court a natural dispensation, what they call maybe the conscience or the moral compass, whatever you want to call it. It's the idea that human beings already know in a general sense what's right and wrong. They don't know the details, but they have the idea they have a conscience. So part of that conscience is the belief in a god.
Yeah. And some scholars go further. They say no, the fitrah is Islam meaning the idea to submit to God. Yeah, W Rahim Allah, He brought an aeration in the verse is sort of a room filled with a line that in fact, Allah masala to explain that fitrah means Islam meaning, the idea of submitting to God, it is already present inside human beings. And there was a study done in Oxford University, though, in which behavioral psychologists they concluded in a study, which is a very large study on children, infants, rather, and children growing up that children are predisposed to believe in God. Yeah, that's one of the conclusions of the study, which is what we are saying there, which is why
I'm not positive and depressing person has taught us already. So these are the two qualities. Yeah, the second quality. Why the reason is interesting is because firstly, Allah, Allah, Allah said, they fail, not Allah, they fail.
The idea of fearing the merciful. This seems counterintuitive, doesn't it? I mean, if if you look at a lot and you are thinking about a lot in terms of His mercy, you really fear that would rather you would hope in the name that you would feel would be an Aziz Jabbar? Yeah, that's the one you would fit the one who would compel the one who can.
The one who was Aziz Almighty Who could punish. So why do you think this combination comes? You fail, All Merciful? Like, what's the benefit in that? What is that teaching us? Has your Walkman, they feel
Okay, that you can feel your mother even though you
You your mother represents like mercy in your life
Okay, absent these people they're not diluted by the fact that lies are among many people's panela they justify a bad lifestyle on the fact that was all merciful you know, Uncle Uncle shop is not good go any better. Unless
they're you know uncle is true but he's also allows ease Yeah, Uncle also showed you. So
this is this is a delusion almost. And you know the brothers of use of what they said after plotting to kill us and they said they said that you know what? Let's throw him inside the world and after this we people who are righteous who saw ourselves afterwards let's do the bad deed so as an artist as Paula Hello this is the mentality many of us fall into and we start to do things we say we'll do will Utah Loftus, this is like you know what the call is called premeditated murder isn't the worst kind of murder isn't it? Is that the person planned it all out, step by step what he's gonna do, and then he did it. And this is the same sort of people, a premeditated sin. People stuff like the
plant. I'm going to do this, go here, do this, do this. And then I'm going to do this and stuff like this is the worst kind. Yeah, mela, smile forgive us for all of our sins. So this is one of the benefits of Rockman to show that these people are not deluded by the fact that God is merciful. Yeah, they're not deluded, they can still feel good knowing that he's a Rama has very beautiful point.
Another nuance is the word fascist. So in Arabic there are many words for fear. In fact in the forum, there are nine words fulfil, there is hope. lack of knowledge.
Afternoon there is the word award. So no prefer Palooza Mr. Ravi will cast terror into their hearts.
There is the word Porsche. Porsche is another word is well, then there is this word, Harsha. Yeah, it's only other words it Can anyone think of the other words for fear? I think there's about nine different words.
Anyhow, maybe I remember in Sharla. So the word fascia It is a very, is different to health. Yeah, health is when you face something and you don't want to be near like a person who fears dogs. person first dogs he sees a dog who wants to go the opposite direction.
person who has fascia However, he has a fear that in the sense of all Yeah, like if you meet someone,
maybe someone who's famous, he went over that person, charismatic behavior and all of that person. And that doesn't make you want to run away It makes you want to take a selfie. Yeah, it makes you want to go up to the person and shake his hand, speak to them so and so forth. So that's the hashish and that's why the last one is said about the scholars of Islam in the martial law. I mean, Albert II an aroma that the people who have too harsh of a law are the scholars of Islam. Because what they know about Allah brings them into the overlay. Now bring us into His or so this is the word Hashana that helps us to understand the combination harsher. Rahman because now it's they're not scared of a
rush man. The off man. Yeah, the fact that like so incredibly merciful to all of his creation, and brings them in a state of ball towards him. subhanho wa Taala because you're like, man, I believe. So for this person. Allah instructs the processor them for best shooter who go to this person and congratulate him
congratulating on two things. Number one, forgiveness. So imagine a person who's standing there is a crowd of people is talking to them trying to advise him. Most of them they say you know what? You might as well go home, we're not gonna listen to you. But he knows ally said you got to keep on doing it.
And with the hope that there's one or two people somewhere in the crowd that can listen.
Now he doesn't know who they are, because even the traits are hidden traits. First trait is what? That they they're ready to listen. How do you know who's ready to listen, you don't always wait to listen.
And they feel like the unseen. Do you know phase one, the unseen. You don't know. Even those traits are unknown to the processor. So he's calling this crowd of people and he's, he has an assurance in his mind. Someone's gonna listen. When the person comes forward. Allah says go to him and tell him number one, all your sins in the past. Forgive her loss. And number two ajilon Karim you will have a noble route.
Now this combination is very interesting. Firstly, because
The idea of mouth filler is to do with the past, the idea of mobile world is to do with the future. past and future. It's all covered. You become Muslim. Everything's taken care of. Yeah. But why is that our first one as you didn't kill him second? Actually, why mcfa Anyway, why is molecular so important to this type of person? Well, appreciate this, a person, especially if you look at aligning the sealer, this, this was coming down in year 10, you find people, they listen to the person many times now, but 10 years have gone by and still haven't accepted it.
Now you, even if you want to accept that you're embarrassed
today, or you're a solo or become Muslim, for about 10 years, when 10 years now.
Now you want to become not a good philosopher. But that can, you know, hold someone back.
What and what and the reason is because for 10 years, I've been such a bad person. of now you're going to change. Now you want to do something, you know, I say Tom says, I think Come on, man. All your life. You've been doing shameful things. Now you're going to change? Come on.
Even if you do you're a hypocrite. Yeah, isn't that what shaytan says? So the what's going to attract that person out of the crowd? Is Don't worry, it's been 10 years, everything in those 10 years, you're gonna be forgiven into it. Yeah. And you know, one of the most
amazing conversion stories and sealer is a story of Amazon house, having lost his story of life is amazing, because I haven't lost was like a devout, devout enemy of Islam. He was one of the people who the courage sent to Habesha at the senior to try and broker or deal with the jealousy to get the Muslims back, you know, the first migration was to be sitting here, right?
And what happens is Muslims leave and who comes after them and last with another person, I forgot his name. And he goes to the joshy. And you know, he says,
These people, they left us, they betrayed us on servers, and we will not want the back of the disaster. He refuses. Yeah.
That's our last he was a smart man. He was like a politician if you're like a statesman.
And what happens is, he's the last person to become Muslim. Before the conquest of Makkah. The last, the very last person, what happens is that when after 100, or 200, the pradesh they realized that, you know what, the tide is turning the favor of the Muslims. And soon it's just a matter of time, they're gonna come and take over.
I want to answer is one of those people and he said to himself, you know what? They're gonna come here. What should I do now? He only says, He said to so I'm gonna go to a senior now and ask me joshy. But I can live there as well, because and he's talking to somebody else. Now. He says this.
If the judge allows us to stay there, we can stay there and see what happens. If they take over, you stay here. If they don't take over, you go back. And see, he's still thinking strategically what to do, right? So what happens is that he goes to our senior as he's going there, he meets another Muslim, who's been sent by the first cillum to call back Jaffa.
Yeah, of course, I'm sent a message after that, listen, now the time has come, you can come back now.
He sees that messenger. And he goes to the joshy. And he's still trying to cause corruption. And he goes and judge and he says, Listen, allow me to kill that messenger. Because those people have betrayed us. Yeah, they've turned against them. Now they're gonna come and attack us as well. So now joshy, he's Muslim, now. He's a Muslim. Now. He does something which is part of their culture, which is he takes his hand and he slaps on his nose, really hot. Here, in one region, said that I thought he'd broken his nose.
This is expression, anger. How dare you say something like this?
He says that you want me to kill the messenger of the one who gibreel speaks to the one who agreed, the one who comes to him and spoke to him who spoke to Moosa, that's his words, the one who comes to speak to him who spoke to Moosa? Is that what you want me to do? I will ask it, I wish the world would open up and swallow me at that point. And then the joshy he starts giving him down. He's starting to listen, the time has come for you to become Muslim. Now, you know that I know that except Islam. And here, they said, this is one of the occasions where a Tabby is giving Dawa to a Sahabi.
Think about this.
The joshy never saw the person he was Muslim. Therefore, he was determined
will become Muslim and see and see the person therefore he becomes a Sahabi but he acts
Islam at the hands of a turban some ID that's why says RG
us, he accepts the Joshua's code and it becomes the Muslim. But he has a reservation. He goes all the way to Medina comes and so he goes on route to Medina. You know, he meets on the way harder in Belize.
Why is he going to Medina? He says, Listen, the time has gone to become Muslim now.
He said, Well, I because I went to the garden for the same reason. Let's go together. So they both go together. Hi, I'm Maria consoled and he gives the beta to the person I don't ask comes to the person in one duration.
The person extended his hand up last he doesn't extend his hand.
And then the person tells you what's wrong with you. And he says,
I will give you the beta, if you can promise me that I will be forgiven my sins. So
what was the one thing on his mind? motherfuck What I really need forgiven he said, What is the matter, you do not know that. Islam wipes away whatever came before. And hijra wipes, whatever came before? meaning you're going to get two things you're going to do right now. We're just going to wipe everything away Islam and Islam. But do you know? Yeah. So this is one of the you know, psychological perhaps reasons why mocha has been spoken at first because this is the thing on their minds. The last people to accept Islam, they're thinking about you know, all my life and I've been a bad boy.
Am I really going to be a good person now, everything in the past will be forgiven.
He didn't carry even more interesting why no the rewards. Why never wrote one of the reasons and the last one was best is because of this. Imagine, again, that same crowd of people, most of them have been behind the person for so many years. And then you're one of those people in the crowd. You listen for some speech and you're like, you know what it makes sense. I think we should become sooner. But you know what, what's gonna happen if I step forward? And give my hand? Well, those people are gonna say to me,
you can see you you're gonna go and become Muslim with him. Now you can leave us what a despicable person you are. Shame on you isn't? Isn't Apple to reverts people that are Muslim? What happens to the one of the families do the descendant you're gonna become a terrorist? Because that's what they say, Yeah, you're gonna become extremist. Now? What's wrong with you? Yeah. So they are going to basically put the reputation on the line, they're going to lose all respect in the eyes of the people isn't. So that's why I say is the second thing you're going to get is a lot is going to make you Noble. Who is going to give you a noble reward? Who cares what people think when alarm makes,
you know? Yeah. So both of those things, that would be obstacles are being removed in such a beautiful way? Yeah.
Moving on, one of the many lessons that this verse teaches us is that the secret to success in life is really two things. Number one, is to act on what you know. And number two is to be sincere in an iTunes romanika article.
Right? Am I saying that the person is going to break away from all of these bad people, changes life and be successful is a person has two qualities, the first quality is that you know what, he's ready to do what it takes. He's ready to stand for the truth is ready. And secondly, the reason is going to do that is harsh, is because of a law. No one else is not for himself, as nicely as people it's not for freedom, or liberty or anything else. It's for a line on lawn.
If those two trays come inside a person, and they will be successful in life, anyone who reads the stories of the profits will see this this is just everywhere in their lives, the rich, do what it takes, even if it means having to take the slack for that and they're ready to do it for the sake of a loss.
Okay, any questions on this? First of all, we want to the next one.
You can ask if you don't understand something or you want to repeat something.
Okay, so the first is Al Quran, the second is Al Kitab. And then the vicar and also
the word for con comes from FARC which means to,
to differ. And the full con The idea is that the Quran will distinguish
will show you the difference between right and wrong.
Yeah, which is very interesting.
Because the idea is that human beings you will never be able to truly see right from wrong without look around in your life. You are. Yeah, that was one of the names of the Quran. Okay, now the another analysis, which is how does this verse tie up with the rest of the soul? Yeah. What?
You know, how does it link to other places in the solar
These three these three links if you like, the first link is what will come later. This versus speaking about the one person who will listen and belief Then comes a story about us hobble Korea, a whole city who denies the profits, except for one man.
Well known min apostle Medina, then one man, just one person with three profits that are given to everyone and who accepts Islam. One man and even him, aka zombies right at the end of the city is rather further for the city. He comes along. Yeah. When he comes along, what does he tell his people to do?
What do you say? He says it terbaru metalized aliquam. A Jerome omoton. He says it tieback de teba. Follow? Yeah, follow me Listen, and obey those that don't ask you for any wage, and they are themselves guided people. Just like I said in this verse, the one who will be guided, he's the one who's ready to listen, and a bit ativa that's the second link. The third link is that what happens to this person? This person is killed. He's a martyr. And when he is in Paradise, he speaks and his words are captured in the Koran. He says yeah, like talking alimony says oh holy if my people they knew the amazing rewards that were offered to them
be mouths off earlier Obi Wan Gianni will be coming
in two ways in how Allah gave me everything I did. And how Allah made me of those that are honorable people. Just like Allah said, publisher who be mouthful. I didn't I didn't carry on I do realize that he
is that the links are just when you The thing is about the links in the Quran. Is that you don't see them. When someone tells you like oh my goodness, was so clear. I didn't see that. Yeah, this is this is the from the you know, amazing,
reckless nature of the Koran. No one could speak like this. No one could write like this. No one could say something like this. Okay.
The last verse in the national national motor one act wuma.
Bakula Shana. So in a movie in a movie, this is the conclusion of the first main passage.
And it concludes by speaking about resurrection,
which, to be honest, seems like a bit out of place, because the conversation is about Firstly, the process selam how he's upon guidance and how he's been sent and then about how people will not listen to him, they won't believe in him. And then about the few people that will listen to him. It's about good and evil, about good people or bad people and then resurrection. This is the question in our mind should be, how does this tally and flow with what came before I can ask you that at the end inshallah, this verse, Allah says, in national national motor when I was wrong, indeed, we, we we will bring the dead back to life. And we are writing, we are writing what they
put forward, as well as they are footsteps,
as well as their footsteps. And every single thing has been recorded. pasterns has been recorded in something called imami mubin is something called imami mubin. Now, this verse begins with a triple emphasis, linguistically Triple Aim has been applied, I'll say Firstly, inner, which means truly, we then Allah says, national, which means, we, truly we, we know he means we bring to life we have another way. And then another one. Ship when versus to say, the only one who can do this is Allah.
Allah will choose to do this alone will bring the dead back to life. So much emphasis Why? Because there's so much dinner.
People just don't believe they won't accept it. Even in our times. You know, some of the best movies the about the end of times, right? People make a joke out and people make movies out of them.
Nobody believes in it. Everyone just takes it as fictitious, something that's not going to happen. So till then until now, people don't accept the idea that human beings you're going to die, you're going to come back to life. That's one reason why the Quran makes it sound fattiness reality.
So this is number one, the second benefit of emphasizing so much is to express the power of Allah. He is truly going to this no doubt about the server, meaning he has the total capability and power to do this miraculous thing, which is to bring the people back to life. Yeah.
And then a second thing, one, act two, and we are writing, what they have a demo where they are going to send food, what I thought of him, as well as the footsteps. What does that mean?
even tell him a lot. He said that he quotes kotoba. I want to tell you, who explains this as meaning a demo means that the deeds that people are doing right now in their lives is being recorded.
Farah whom is speaking about when they die,
the imprint, they leave on other people is also going to be recorded.
So whatever you're doing now good or bad, it is being written by the angels
after you die, which is not the end of the story,
the impact you have in other people's life, whether good or bad, it will continue to be written until, until it goes on until it ends itself. Yeah. And this is like you know, the person whom he told us in the authentic hadith that is a matter of insight when a person knows
that his deeds come to an end, meaning his good deeds, continent, his deeds, meaning what he can do himself. However, he said, in law, Salah 1311, for nothing except for three things, what is what is the person mean, except for three things a person is gone? How can he continue to do good deeds? He explained, explain, I'll give you three examples. But those examples, the first one is
socketing giulietti. Except the case of sadaqa jariya, which means a person done a charity will act, which continues to benefit people even after he dies, like someone who built a will, or someone who set up a school, or someone to build a merchant anything. Yeah.
Those things as long as they continue to benefit people in the grave, the person will still be getting things added to his bank account, no goodies.
The second thing he mentioned was
leading you into farabee. knowledge which he leaves, which benefits people, when people benefit from he taught people good things. And those people continue to benefit from our knowledge, maybe even the generation that comes after will benefit because they teach them what they learn from you. keeps on going on. So very powerful idea because there's no end to this, especially your parents, if they are the primary educators of their children. And those children go on to teach their children who it is their children who teach their children. Until Yama, karma, I think somehow you could be accumulating mass reward just through your kids.
So why is why send your kids to other people to learn Islam? Why not learn it yourself and teach your children?
What do you got so much to gain from this? Yeah. So this is knowledge that benefits people.
And then the last thing is what?
Yes, well, while it insulation, here, the ruler, and righteous children that going to go to make do often, as long as there's people in this world making the offer, you will continue to benefit. You could benefit from that. There's another reason why to raise your kids Will Rogers, if anything is for your own benefit. If you die, and they're good practicing Muslims, they're gonna make coffee. Yeah, when they pray some other think of you and then went off, you know, like, give us children mother. So this is an example of a good legacy. What you did in your life you're going to benefit from and then after you leave your good legacy will benefit you switched around, it could be an evil
legacy. But someone did horrible things in life, and then only did them which in a way that impacted themselves but also impacted other people around them. Like someone who starts a business and the business is involved is frozen, frozen business, but the business grows. And what do you know after you die, the business grows even more.
becomes a multinational, corporate, you know the whole world. It's all around the world and
employees are just increasing and revenues are increasing.
Seeing all of that based on fraudulent activity. And all of that goes back to his account.
Quality, okay? Imagine the worst thing imaginable is happening to in your grave, and is only increasing because of your evil legacy. So this is the mobile iPhone. It has also a very specific meaning as well which the scholars brought out. They said to ourselves, it can also refer to the literal footsteps of a person as well. And this is based on the fact that the process of him he advised a tribe but no selima, who were thinking of relocating to be closer to the machine that
Athol coup took tap, he said, your footsteps are being written, meaning you're further away from the process from the rest of the process. However, you have to walk more, as you walk, you accumulate more good deeds, and that is better for you to stay further and walk more than to be closer. Yeah. And to be closer. And I think this is interesting, because
this idea of trying to find ease in the religion used to be properly understood. If the idea was to make things as easy as possible. The person would have said, Yeah, I was close to the bus is impossible, you know, why go to the heat of Medina. Now the desert, they were living in?
Magic Pickler thing, which is about 30 minutes walk from the machine in the sweltering heat, imagine, and you don't want it's part of the verse that I'm told a blind man who said, he asked what concession
to read his Virgil's home, have you heard this?
He came to him and he asked me because he didn't, because he said, I don't have someone to take me a guide. You know, the person said to him,
initially said, okay, but then he asked him a question. Anyone? No question you asked him.
Excellent. He said, Can you hear the other? He said, Yes. He said, then you have to come. Imagine a blind man. He's having trouble. See, he's having trouble finding his way. He's got no guide. Yeah. But if you can hear it, you can use that to navigate yourself.
Yeah. And is much better that you pray in the masjid than you pray at home.
So here, the idea of ease and the resolution properly understood. Yeah. Is it properly understood? Anyway, this semester for the liberals basically, it was not clear enough. This is what the liberals Okay, well, kulesza in us I know FEMA will be the last part of the verse is every single thing has been recorded. The word afsa refers to ancient counting, he was counting that was done with with pebbles, they used to have a vessel that they will place the pebbles in there to count. The reason being is because it's accurate. Once you count, you can empty and you can see how much he counted as opposed to your head which you can lose count. So it's the idea of not just counting but being
precise. Hello, Allah said and everything has already been recorded.
When it came to writing, I said number two, which is presence is being written when it came to recorded pastors.
Yeah. Are you following me? Both have to do with writing stuff down when one is present? One is past. Everything has been recorded in what they call imami mo been a man who have been, according to all them have a saloon refers to the preserved tablets, a lotion metals.
Why is it called a mammal being
human means leader. mobian means clear. Others, some scholars said it can be clear or clarifying.
The reason why it's called the man is because the body man comes from word who means mother, a mother is said to be like the the manager the origin, all the children that go back to the mother, regardless of how many they go back to one mother. So the idea is that every decree that ever takes place, it goes back to that book.
That is why cinema. And the reason is moving is because the way it tells what's going to happen is so clear and precise. So clear, but that's why it's even been
said this was speaking about two types of writing.
Al Kitab acerbic and Al Kitab, Al McCollum Al Kitab servic and Al Kitab. And on the first he said, the book which is the primary book or the first book
the best way to complete the lunch
Oscar, it's better to wait
Can you repeat that louder so we can follow as well?
Okay. Yes, he said there are two types of writing the first is lucky to have a service which means the first book, The foremost book, which is talking about the present tablet. And secondly it is the cayetano current which means the book which is relative, ie the book, which is what the angels that are recording what you do, as in when you do it, this verse speaking about both, because the first is next to what is being written, which is referring to and mokara as for the second book, the Sabbath, that is wakulla shame, obviously now houfy female movie. Yeah, so, this was speaking about most of the writings that happen in the life of a person.
We have a few minutes just want to make one point a very astute point by American law. He said that when the Quran speaks about resurrection, it brings together it draws upon two attributes of a lot. The first attribute is the power of Allah.
The second attribute anyone know
what is the second attribute?
Is this is big, it is an island knowledge, knowledge. And the reason that is so let me give some examples. So like in Surah, to
help Yama kiama internal Allen Naja Naja mera Varma Allah says do they do people think that we will not be able to bring back their bonds but our Caterina Allah and so we have banana, we can do more than that. On the contrary, we can bring we can piece them together all the way back to banana which is at his fingertips. Fingertips, not just the bonds, the very skin on the tip of your finger, which doesn't just point towards power it points towards knowledge as well.
Allah says in Surah Tobin as well, Zara and Lena cafaro and lay up these videos they claim that they're not going to be brought back to life pull Bella say On the contrary, I swear by my master that they will be resurrected, then they will be informed about what they used to do whether they can align your suit and that is very easy for law. The word is that is very easy for law reflect what attributes power as for they will be informed in detail what they do that refers to knowledge. Now the reason he said that happens is because the courage they will deny resurrection to account The first is that is impossible. It's not gonna happen.
That's an impossibility meaning God software doesn't have the power to do that.
The second reason they will deny it is they would say
either mitzner or without Berlin, fill up there in lemon Earth soon. It will say when we are when we are mixed up inside the soil. Will we then be brought back to life, meaning we're going to die
decompose and scatter into the soil. Our pieces are going to be in 1000s all mixed and hidden away somewhere in this world Come on. It's not about power, it's about knowledge. That is what Allah says, we have the power, and we have the knowledge.
Wherever you are, now the power and how many pieces you're in, whether you be scattered into the ocean, in ashes, you will know exactly where every piece of you lies.
Okay, this is the end of the W shala. Because of time as well. We'll continue next week as I was sort of last syllable of Article 101 earlier
