Shangri La amin salatu salam
ala nabina Muhammad Anwar. He was actually here in another family come up to LA he worked out. There's brothers and sisters and welcome to the continuation of the sort of talk man Sharla. Today, we'll be going through the verses eight to 11. Charla, let us begin with a recitation of these noble verses.
Our humanists banyuwangi,

Okay, this will
be I'm sitting in the water and who suffers mine. Okay, so verse number eight.
In alladhina amanu Aminu swinehart. Indeed those that believe and do righteous good deeds they will be for them the home Jana to name gardens of enjoyment. Now, this verse needs to be read. With the previous verses in mind. The previous verses spoke about a particular type of people or men and Nancy, Manisha rely on Hadees they are those upon misguidance that Allah spoke about their particular type of misguidance which has to do with them spending so much time in things which are useless, either that was music, singing or just false speech. You mentioned the different first uniform in a nassima yesterday.
Those were a lot gave us an insight into what was the main reason why they became misguided
what it took
to tuna. What was the Quran they were was the kabiri they were people of arrogance. That was the main underlying reason why they ended up in their misguidance. So a Shakuni Rahim Allah and His the suit. He made this. He read this into this verse, that this verse is in contrast to the verse before about Mr coveting. So in the lead in
the heart, indeed those that believe and do righteous deeds as opposed to those that can be seen.
As opposed to those that are arrogant, we have a law saying these type of people who as a property said, they alladhina amanu it means that they have embraced the oneness of Allah they have made the hate of Allah. Yeah, we'll come to this point later on inshallah which means that they have submitted to Allah alone, and given their devotion to him and him alone. And above that, he said that they have listened and adhere to all the commandments that came from his messengers have a long way of sort of
adhering to those commandments and staying away from those prohibitions those are in the Medina maneuver.
Now as for the Mr. COVID-19 Allah told us about them and then they fate that they will be well at home other boon alene they will be for them a painful punishment, but for in Alina.
Long Jenner to name No, no no for them. There's going to be this gender to name
about gender to name this expression gender to name comes in many times I'll put on that it isn't German, it's a German means that it's a comprehensive expression. And it covers many different aspects of paradise. Okay, gender to name is in Germany. It relates to many, many different things in paradise. That's why applica Theater, Rahim online, his stuff said, he said that this encompasses, for example, the food and the drink of the people of paradise. It encompasses what they will wear in paradise. And he also as Paula mentioned, that there will be an unimaginable sound, a tone, a rhythm coming in paradise that they will also enjoy listening to, which is very amazing,
because what did the previous verse speak about the tunes that people listened to in this dunya
as for those that believe they stayed away from that, and that is a result in Jenna, they will have something of a much better quality of a much better purity, that they will listen to.
Now on the subject of Paradise and description of Paradise, as many many ahaadeeth mentioned, you know, this one mentioned in recorded by, in the tsunami of activity reported by the devil in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the people of Paradise they will have, they will have no hair on the body meaning hair that people usually try to remove because it is unsightly, they will have none of that. And he also mentioned they won't have no bins. And you also mentioned that they will when they sweat, that that sweat that will come from them will in fact smell like musk.
And another generation mentioned in Sahih Bukhari of the 30 hour era, the process of them said that they will not sneeze, they will not have any mucus coming from the nose, nor will they even go to the toilet. They will have none of these shortcomings that they have in this life as human beings. Rather, in the Hereafter, they will be enjoyments of so many times he mentioned sort of DRC Allah said that they will have faqir, they will enjoy faqir and we also made a point there that allowed generally speaking when he spoke about the food or the people of Paradise, what type of food did he speak about?
The factor which is not just fruit thunder, it is a particular type of exotic fruit and then we mentioned was the wisdom or was he brought as to why fruit was mentioned in particular that that's what they eat and not for example, you know, meals and you know, crops and etc etc. No, none of none of that just the fruit was mentioned the people in a paradise they're not eating because they're hungry. And when people are hungry, what do they eat, they don't eat fruit they eat you know carbohydrates and protein etc etc. When they're not hungry they only eating fruit because of the love the taste. Just the taste they just want to enjoy what this particular thing tastes like is
fruit we're not eating because you're hungry just want to know what it tastes like and enjoy the taste of it. Okay, dinner to name so many many different types of pleasures and enjoyment in in paradise.
The next verse, Holly Dean a few who are the law of power who will Aziz and heck Kim's parliamentary benefits from this one of us notice how Allah here didn't begin Holly Duna fee Holly Duna fee her would mean that they are in there for an eternity. Holly Dena fee as of now, she would mentioned is in the state of monsoon, because it is how what does that mean? It means that
Jenna to name they are not just going to be in there forever, but they are going to be enjoying what is in power is continuously forever.
gardens of enjoyment is not that it just be in the highly donor be highly Dena meaning they will be in a particular state of the state of utter enjoyment, continuously, never ending for an eternity. Life will never come to an end. And not just life. But the enjoyment of that life will never come to an end. Then unless and why the law.
That is the word of Allah, the promise of Allah Allah doesn't need to make that explicit. Anyone who believes in Allah reads his words knows that whatever he said is true. But here, Allah wanted to build conviction in the hearts of the believers, that it is a reality that will come and nothing will stop that coming to the law.
It is without a shadow of a doubt a certainty.
But then after that, Allah mentioned two names, two names of his that
conviction and remove any hesitation in your mind. Now I want you to think
a lie saying that those believers will have paradise will be in there for an eternity.
Okay? And then Allah said is a promise from him. He's saying it is definitely going to happen. Now somebody may think, I know people, they promised me many things. But for example, island was the name of
an island and on my laptop, okay, I would never do. But let's say I did. Now I'm promised, I'm going to give it back to you. In two weeks time, they now he went, took my laptop, promise me I believed in but when he got home, he left it and attended and other law somebody broke into his home and stole the laptop.
That is a circumstance beyond his influence. hesitation. Look what Allah said next, what who allows these he is the old might, no one could ever challenge him or prevent him from doing anything. He is as this that could never happen. That promise could never be obstructed by anything else.
But somebody may say, okay, Adam, he took my laptop hamdulillah and he looked off.
In fact, he kept it for so long, that he started to think Hang on a minute, who actually gave me this laptop?
Was it him? Was it him was not sure actually forget about it. You know, he became liquid in about him.
And look one dimension Next, well, who allows his will hacking he's all wise, he will never neglect a promise. Jenna will come many, many, many years down the line. time will pass laws hacking, all wise, you will never forget that promise that he made to you. Look, I love Bill's conviction in the hearts of his believing slaves and you removes any hesitation that you may have an embracing that belief in him and the reward that he has promised.
two lessons that we learn from these two passages.
Number one, the first lesson is that is about why Allah guides and misguides before we read about human anatomy yesterday, let one Hadith a particular type of misguided individuals. Then we read about the believers that they are the ones that believe do righteous deeds, we promise paradise. Now, what is the underlying reason behind those people being guided, and those people being misguided? A Saudi Rahim Allah is the seed mentioned a nice point about these two names of a lot of being brought in this verse. Allah Aziz and Hakeem al Aziz and Hakeem refers to his guiding and misguiding people that he misguides certain people, and no one could ever challenge that. And that
was for me to nassima yesterday in the Hadith, but he's also Hakeem. He doesn't just miss guide and guide arbitrarily, out of favoritism. No, it is based on hikma based on wisdom, there is a reason why certain people have fallen into misguidance and there is another reason why others have believed in him and are being guided.
Okay, so what is the underlying cause? What is the underlying reason behind this?
Just somebody want to offer an answer first.
And what do you think even a simple way? How can we explain this some people are guided some people are misguided. In fact, we know as person will say, I would say that may the loan for that will be enough for me, you will find that whoever is misguided, but a lot, no one can guide them whoever is guided by Allah, no one can discard them. Okay, so somebody is asking a question. Now what does that mean that somebody over there is misguided.
And he doesn't want to be he wants to be gay. He wants to embrace Islam. But the fact is Allah misguided him, no one can guide him and another person over there Mashallah is praying, he believes in Allah. Allah guided him himself. He doesn't, doesn't care, whatever. Noble Allah guided him. So he's going to be like that.
How do we explain this muster? The root cause behind someone's being guided and misguided is how he used his own free will. Did he use the free will Allah gave him to strive towards the truth. If he did, and he's doing so, then Allah in turn will guide that person. Now whoever Allah guides, that person who wants guidance, no one could ever misguide that person.
Now, on the other side, there is somebody out there, method and a Buddha. He does not want
guidance. He hates the guidance that came from the process and
as a consequence, alarm is guides him even more. And whoever lies misguiding that person, no one can guide him. He doesn't want to himself mobilize misquoting him more and more.
But this is something that is explained in the Quran in many, many verses no to something coming new is something mentioned many, many places upon for example, and sort of stuff. So a lot of stuff I think verse number six or seven. Allah says about the binaries that are easy for them, as well. As long Pluto, hula, hula, yeah, the cow volley mean.
Three points about this verse. Allah said, when they deviated for them as they did, as Allah, Allah then misguided them more.
Point number one who initiated the misguidance? Who is the one who began the path of misguidance for them as well. Was it a law who started them off and misguidance was it themselves is clear it was themselves for them as being the one who turned away.
that's point number one. Point number two is look at the end. One long, who didn't mean losses I do not guide who? Those people.
kuffaar No, Allah said, volley mean he gave a description about their behavior that they are Varley, me they are wrongdoers.
It is madness. There's many verses like this, many of us and the one source of funding is volume. So we check chakras. Check for ascension.
So Allah says here he gave that he gave the reasoning he didn't just say I misguided them. Allah said, well, Lola Yeah, the omo Valley mean, Allah does not guide the wrongdoer. So they are already wrongdoers.
And that is why Allah is not guiding them, okay. That makes sense. This is something mentioned many times. In fact there are 31 places in the Quran. Allah spoke about people's misguidance and in every single verse, he mentioned either in the verse or before after it, the reason why he is misguiding them.
Example Surah Baqarah in the very beginning, verse number six i think is hotter Milan Radha, Guru beam, mala Samaritan civilian model, sorry militia, that Allah has seal the hearts places seal on the hearts and the hearing and the vision has become blinded.
Okay. Those people Allah has done that to them, Why?
The verse before is
in the lead in a cafaro. So narrowly.
Allah said in the Latina capital, that they are the ones in the first place they have they are bent on disbelieving. That is how they are behaving. As a result Houghton Allahu Allah lubi mother, seminary mother, militia 31 times no Quran
whenever you read it now in the Quran, look yourself. Allah gives the very reasoning why he's misguiding them it is not an arbitrary thing. The very the one of the clearest verses
Okay, what did you find that one of the clearest verses that mentioned the reason why Allah misguide some people is found in Surah, a nutshell, the 16th chapter of the Quran verse number 104. Allah says so clearly, in a Latina, you mean una Biya Tila, he la? de mo long what a mother any, any when I read this verse, in fact, I heard it first. In this context, hum, I was amazed Jani unbiasedness so clearly in the Latina, LA, Luna, big Attila, though those that don't want to believe in my science.
Law? Yeah, the human law alone
is so clear, is so clear. They themselves don't want to believe.
On that basis. Allah says I will not guide them. I will not guide them. Even if they hear my verse recite to them, they will not enter their hearts and have an impact. They don't want to I know what they want. And on that basis, I will miss kind of more. I will miss God The more that misguidance is a source of punishment is a source of punishment for them.
Okay, now, that's the first lesson.
The second lesson
is notice how
Allah when speaking by reward, he mentioned the promise more or the law he helped.
But when it came to the Mr. Committee, did Allah mention that the other is promised to them? Is it then in the verse? It's not there? Yeah. What is he? Lama was the cure. But they turn away, Mr. Kimura. And then at the end, Allah said, well, mother in law didn't say that is the word from him, or the law. So when it came to the reward, a lot, emphasize it with a promise. But when it came to punishment, Alan never emphasized it with a promise. What does that teach us? It teaches us that Allah does not want to punish His creatures. Allah does not has not created us to throw us into the Hellfire Allah does not want to do that with us. Allah created us a laugh fashion us in the wombs of
our mothers allies one nurturing us day by day. Do you think he wants to throw some of us in the Hellfire? No, he does not. In fact, Allah mentioned this in the Quran explicitly, in Surah Nisa, verse number 147. May Allah be other become in Chicago to momentum? law says federal law, what is a law going to do? What is a law rather than going to get out of punishing you? For the law? What is the law granting? What am I going to get out of punishing you? You want my creatures in Chicago momentum only if you would show some gratitude and faith in me, I would not do this to you. How Allah expresses his compassion, love for his creatures and his desire to see them guided and
worshipping Him. But at the same time, Allah is just those that do worship Him, He will reward them and those that don't, He will punish them.
So in this verse, what we learn sorry from the fact that there is no promise mentioned for other but there is promised pension for follow up, that Allah has not created us to punish us Allah does not like enjoy to punish us.
Rather the punishment is come from His justice. Okay. But as we wonder,
a lot instead,
Hello possum, our TV lady Ahmed in Tirana.
It is Allah who created the heavens with no support.
Now, this verse has four words that we will explain first, the vocabulary from a linguistic perspective. Before we move on to the decision here we said inshallah, this is the way we'll try and do the, the format of the lesson we'll go through words are difficult linguistically, then speak about the seed what was mentioned about poverty, and others, and then we will go to the lessons at the very end. So there are four words here. Here Allah said that he created the heavens meaning the sky above us and everything we see in that sky.
Be Radia Ahmed
Ahmed, okay is the plural of
our mood, our mood, our mood refers to pillars to a pillar to a column to a support Okay, something that is dependent upon Yeah, like a pillar. So, the lady Ahmed the plural Allah saying that this somehow above your head has been created without any supports, any pillars, any columns? Okay, that's the first word. The second word is arowana. See, Allah said well coffee out of our car that he placed firmly within this earth or was here for awasi again is approved and is approved of row as of
last year as of Ravasi, what is the roof row as you refer to it refers to
the root rather of the rasa refers to something to stand firm to dock or to anchor. It can also mean when you sink something into the ground, such that it makes firm what is attached to it is sinks something into the ground and makes firm that we should attach it like a pink you hammer a peg a sink into the ground, wherever the peg is attached to it makes that thing firm.
So laoise here is a plural is referring to the mountains. Okay, mountains and the ballasts ballasts in English it means you know you get the sandbags you use the other The bag is filled with sound or some heavy
some heavy material order to weigh down
vessel like a boat to stop it sinking or to keep it firm, you know, stop it rocking about. So it can either mean this or this said we'll get to see later but this is the linguistic.
There's two other words have you mentioned in your course notes, but one was one word we need to explain is and to meet. Because Allah said for us, yeah And to me that become that we place his Rossia firmly in the ground, so that the meet wouldn't happen to me it means to fluctuate, to fluctuate or to tumble, fluctuate to tumble or to sway. When something is to meet, means that is fluctuating. It is the verb being used at the present tense for a lie saying that had we not done this? To me it would have happened, what is the made, things begin to sway tumble about.
The last word is for unbuttoned after that Allah said once again, Minister malema, but he has this firm but now
it comes to the root of Nevada, Nevada refers to the plant vegetation, the seedling, or the sprout.
Now and better, there's no better and better and better refers to the one who makes all of this happen. The one who makes number one, the environment through which somebody can grow. And number two, the one who makes that thing grow to and number three, who makes it shoot up and number four, who even yields the fruit and the vegetation that comes forth from all of that very, very rich word for unbuttoned
Okay, now that I've saved this I've seen a broken down as follows here Allah subhanaw taala mentions four signs for different signs. Now what did the signs point towards we'll get to that at the end Sharma.
sign number one holla possum our TV lady Ahmed in Corona, Allah said that he created a similar a similar word here means the sky above, and everything that you see beyond the sky, meaning space. So what do you see or in in the daylight, the the blue sky, you see the sun, the clouds, and at nighttime, when you see through this guy and look out into the space, you see planets, you see stars, you see meteorites, etc, etc, etc. You see all of those things Allah said, he created that be radiomic in Tirana, without these pillars, columns, Corona This is where they differed in the meaning, what does throne mean?
Do you have two opinions? The first is attribute to ignore birth or the louder Anoma who said that it means that they are created with pillars except you don't see them sorona you don't see that the invisible to
that is the first opinion. The second opinion goes back to patata
Qatada was one of the very famous Serbian he said that it means there are no pillars at all. Here, you can't see them because they don't exist. Here, this house in Tirana, according to the first opinion, goes back to somehow what the second opinion goes back to Ahmed. And based on that you have two views this verse, this expression rather that Allah created the heavens without Ahmed Corona was mentioned earlier in the prod Does anyone know where
this expression was mentioned earlier in the Koran, way back in the beginning, the School of Art and the second verse of SMRT. We live in Toronto. This is where you find that the feet of debris back there. Now, this is the second year that they are no pillars and columns with which Allah has created that's kind of what does that mean?
Well that means when you look up and you see the sky above you, even though it is an entity out there, it is not being held up with anything.
Moreover, when you look out at nighttime and you see the moon and the planets and the stars, they are they're hovering in midair. Nothing is holding them up yet everything we have here on the earth. It needs to be held up by something else.
In that is a sign in that is a sign of blessing, don't you look at that, how I created the radiometer either you can't see the column
holding it up, or they are they floating?
And that is the way I've created them to float. I mean, just think about the sun.
The sun, does anyone know how much the sun waves
with law? The ways they said around to and then million kilograms 2 million kilograms, you got million, you got billion and you got trillion. Keep on going and you get to an alien. An alien is to the number two with 30 zeros coming after it
30 zeros coming after the two. It weighs two to the power of 30 kilograms. And it is palladium floating in that same spot that Allah decreed with to be the radiometer with no nothing supporting it whatsoever.
sign number one, it McAfee says this sign points towards the power of Allah to create something like this.
And he shows a lie so powerful. All of these things weigh so much, yet Allah suspended them in mid air floating without any support whatsoever.
That is the first sign.
The second sign will elkaar fill out the hours here. That Allah Allah, Allah doesn't just mean to place alchemists to cast down and also means to place firmly something. So Allah said that he plays firmly the role was here, the mountains.
But why? What was the wisdom behind a law of creating mountains? Why does the earth have so many mountain ranges, and to me, that'd be cool. Had they not been there, this is what the depth of poverty mentioned that had they not been there, then people would have been tossing about from right to left this earth of poverty said would not be habitable, because the mountains keep the earth stable.
This is a sign alarm mentioned upon law 14 135 years ago.
Now today, we know that mountain mountainous regions cover more than 24% of this globe 24% of this globe, you have the the highest mountain on the face of this globe is the Mount Everest, they said it is taller than around about 8800 meters above sea level.
The Mount Kilimanjaro now people you know when it comes to mountains, some people like to go just to watch look at those mountains, some people like to climb mountains, some people like to draw mountains below saying the real wisdom behind those mountains is not that the real wisdom behind the mountains is had they not been there you would not be here.
That is the Hickman behind me my my creating those are awasi and to me that because to make this earth habitable for you had they not being there, this earth would be unstable. Its power. Not only does that point towards unmas power, but it also points towards his compassion to his creation,
his compassion to his creation, he made it like that so we could live in relative stability.
And if it wasn't like this, we wouldn't be here. And to me that become you would not be here the way you are.
That is sign number two.
sign number three, what's the fee mean couldn't lead
and we buffer we spread out fee in this earth? This Wow. Before but what is the fee? It connects to what Allah just said before.
Rosie said that Allah is saying because we made the earth stable by placing on these mountains. You are then able to see many creatures spread about had this earth not been habitable. You will not see all of these creatures. I have scattered about Obafemi Cooley there but they are about poverty said refers to any animal that eats and drinks on the face of this earth. any animal eats and drinks it is part of the
Now one thing I wanted to share with you because if McCarthy's in his seat, he said that this sign it speaks about the innumerable
number and variety of allows creation on this earth such that only he knows the number of that creation. And it is so vast no one will ever know, come to it and discover all the species. No one would ever be able to it doesn't matter how long we live here. And those interested in wildlife they find every year that people make more and more discoveries. I came across an article
that was published last year in October. They said in this article that at least 441 new species of plants and animals have been discovered in a remote part of the Amazon rainforest. According to the World wild Wildlife Fund 441 brand new species, no one even knew of the existence before 2013 last year, in just a small part of the Amazon rainforest. Now listen to this look what they found, they found that of all the different species, they found 258 new plants 84 new fish, including a vegetarian Khurana.
22 new reptiles, 18 new birds and one new mammal, a monkey that pairs like a cat when it's happy.
And it's Pamela or Buffy having couldn't lead up that my creation is unlimited. Or its number is so vast that you will never be able to come to discover all of them even to date. That man inhabits every corner of this earth yet it still finds new species that's just on the face of it not going into the ocean yet. But going into the ocean in the ocean, they find how many new species every single year.
Okay, so that was
number three. That was the third sign. What ends
up happening, Cooley zodion Kareem. Now after stating about the animals, Allah then spoke about what comes out from the ground, meaning the plants, the vegetation and the crops. Allah said what ends in unison, that he sends down from the sky water meaning rain. But notice something here my brother's Allah said what ends and this is what they call lt fat. lt fat is a change in the domain.
This is a first person narrative we send down. But note, this is the fourth sign. The three signs before this, we're in the third person narrative. Allah said holla. He creates alpha, he costs zone. buffer he spreads out when it came to water. And now we are the one sending this water down. Yeah, and in that there's a fader of benefit ally speaking about this sign and its importance above the other science to human beings. This one is so important that I will show you that I will admit it to myself. I am the one we are the ones sending down this rain to you.
But Snuffy, we spoke about this and butter and butter referring to not just making grow, but creating that environment for it to grow, making it shoot up and then even bringing about the fruit and the veggie and the vegetation. The crops that come about plant at the very end, we are doing all of that. But Snuffy, her mean Cooley, zodion Kareem, again, Cooley zodion Kareem a poverty Rahim Allah said he refers to the the variety, the different colors of the different plants and vegetation that are out there.
If Nicosia mentioned a bowl of a Chevy a Chevy was a very famous tablet, he had many statements of Siri said that thumb button a few her refers to even creatures as well as plants. Why? Because
creatures essentially come from the ground,
including human beings, we are created from clay soil. So we all came from the ground essentially. So ly speaking about us all. In that case. zoji zildjian Kareem referring to human beings means that they will not just created with the best form, but that they are the most splendid to look at as well, that the human beings as one of our last creatures, are the most appealing to look at the most sophisticated when you look at them, comparing them to the rest of mankind. zoji and Kareem another theory is that when it applies human beings that a lot
create them Kareem, meaning with a good dispensation. Originally all human beings have a good in a dispensation this may be referring to the fitrah Allah has granted every single one of us. And then a sharpie ended this code by saying and therefore, Richard is the man who ends up in the Hellfire
because look at all of these signs around him. And originally he was created Kareem and yet he still disbelieved and the end up in the Hellfire must have been a very wretched person.
Okay, hello, before we go too slow.
For 20 minutes, okay.
Okay, now, there is a few things to note here. These signs, are they do they these four signs have any links between them? Is any link going between all of the four? It seems like this? It seems like here, Allah 3d signs is building up. The hedger building up the evidence. Okay. Now, how are we saying that it is slowly building up? Well, look at the signs. First one was about the SMR worth the fact that they are created by radiometer that that is something which you know, a lot of people reflect about the sky and look about and think about how everything is suspended. MIT is so common knowledge, and is there's no novelty in it whatsoever. And no one would really reflect over that and
take a listen to it is very subtle, son. But look at the next one.
The next one is about the mountains. Now that's closer to us. And it's something that we know of, and in fact are inquisitive about more than, you know, a smell as being without fillers. So this one is, this was subtle. This one is now being a bit more apparent. The one after that is about what creatures here animals. And if not I should mention about the animals that Allah is not just saying, look at the number of animals, am I saying look at how you benefit from all of those animals. Not only do you eat and drink them, but you benefit from them by for example, through livestock, you make business out of them. How many years have passed, human beings have been farmers, and have been
had their own livestock buying and selling livestock making money out of it. What about medicine? How many medicines Do we know that originally, the active ingredient goes back to either something from animals or something from plants. So unless speaking about things that you benefit from now, as for the somewhat subtle now, but the fee that we made all of these animals, and then the water, the most apparent, and the most important thing in your life, Allah brings that right at the end. Look at this side of mine. If you couldn't grasp those, and what about this one, this one is so apparent fans and ominous and that you live on this rain, you can't survive without it. If you don't have
water for three days, you will finish. So I love building up the hedger
here, this is called therapy therapy. We mentioned it and sort of yes enough anyone remembers it? This man who came up sir Medina, the way he argued with these people, he built up the argument slowly, this was therapy. So in this this lesson,
there is a dour lesson here that you should have this in your mind that we need to build up the conversation to the point where it becomes very obvious now what you are intending with your words, what is your objective? What do you really want to say? It is not about beating about the bush? No. This is about carefully thinking about your words, and realizing that human beings respond to particular speech. I'll give you an example. You have a non Muslim colleague, you want to tell him, for example, that human beings have a purpose in their life, there'll be resurrected, and there's an afro to come. Now you can say to him, Look, you know, you disbelieve The fact is that there is a
life to come when you become Muslim.
The guy was saying,
Have you had your medicine today?
He wouldn't accept it because he only you just all of a sudden told him and he's thinking, What's the reasoning behind this? And all of you saying this to me? Maybe he'll appreciate maybe he won't. But if you slowly built up the whole job site in 95, every day on the weekend get drunk.
Is that what life is all about? Is it just a game? You know, isn't there a purpose behind life? Is there is a purpose behind it? What is that purpose? You know, I must be something profound. It can't just be doing what we're doing here every single day. You know, I believe that we do have a purpose and other purpose.
This comes from the one who created us. And he told us even in this book on that we were created to worship Him, essentially, his life was a test we need to worship. And if we do, then there's some rewards in the life that come. And if we don't, then there'll be a miserable fate that awaits us. You know, what do you think about Islam? Do you think
what the message holds is something of importance to you. Maybe you get a different response.
But slowly and you build up the hjem Allah subhanho wa Taala teaching us in the Quran, that he could his Allah, they could say to them, you disbelieve in me you will go to the Hellfire has finished, but alas, hard love his compassion, both for science for science and bringing them one after the other, making them more and more apparent, building up the arguments panela the compassionate what loss of carnotaurus features and is designed to one guidance for them. And that is a lesson for us that we should we should to design compassion for others, the greatest compassion to have for another human being is to want to save them from the hellfire. Number one compassion on the list. It
is a compassion that far supersedes wanting to feed hungry people though it is something mandated and recommended in Islam.
It is far greater than wanting to give shelter to another person to teach another person
because the consequences of going hungry is that you will die. But the consequences of rejecting some is that you will go to the hellfire. So compassion for somebody, any has levels and the very highest of them is to want to save someone from the help file.
Okay, so that was one lesson about this.
I think they had another lesson as well.
Now I think we'll go to the next one shown.
Okay, before we move on to the next verse, any questions about this verse? Anyone had a clarification about anything we said about this verse? Everything is clear.
I don't mind any if you want to add something, or was the the verse was a very mono first one. Did you check
the supreme? So we mentioned soloists of Enya la hula, yeah, kilchoman fest was first cleanup volumen.
For the Utah scotian.
Yes, it seems like it is quite clear that I was here because the root word refers to being something that keeps something else firm. That That is why this word was used instead of Jebel or Jabbar. And this is the difference between the
two students sealant double, because
what is it the seal of rosacea that I've seen on OC is that it is cheaper. But the provided a lot used to use this word or was here instead of using the word jabaal. reflection, look at the word itself. Look at its root refers to being something made firm, to sink something into the ground to make something else for most while all of this opens up. And he many points of reflection, and many benefits to this is an example of the definitive seed into the lawn.
without it, there wouldn't be
any anything that is in harmony with the meaning that we've explained, can be used as further commentary. Here. Now there is one point to make here. Rosie mentioned this actually, that when someone reads for example, that Allah coffin of the lower centimeter become
either he reads this and says, Is this true? Let me see if I can find proof from the scientists. If they say I will accept this is an incorrect methodology. The methodology of the belief is, is that Allah said, I will fill out the row as you enter me that become It is like this. And one day people will come to know this truth. Maybe today, or maybe in 10 years time.
Yeah, for what Allah says is true. And sometimes he allows people to find out that truth for many ways, and they are no there's no
blame on other people, even ourselves trying to further emphasize the truth of these words through scientific mode of inquiry, but the methodology, the
First person. He reads he doubts he wants a confirmation from other than the revelation. As for the second proshow and
Yahoo Luna he says that this is from Allah, Amanda. And then if somebody else comes to confirm, he said, Yeah, I already heard it. And you can turn on as though no problem.
Okay, the next is how the law ferroni mother Haleakala Dena Min duni. Allah said how the whole lot that that is the Hulk of Allah.
When Allah sent her the tip now, she said it is as if Allah raised up those signs and brought it before the eyes of the Quraysh that disbelieved in him and said, This is my heart. This is my Hulk.
Now, hello, Paula, what is the Hulk most of them have us Iran say Hulk means Baku cot, it means the creation of Allah. It means the creation of Allah. But in this word Hulk there is a linguistic point to be made, which is that Hulk is a monster is a verbal noun, a verbal noun can refer to the SMF rule and it's unfair, what that means is that either hollow can refer to the creator of those things, or it can refer to the creation itself. It could refer to both and in that there's a point of benefit Allah saying How the hell can law look at those signs and from those signs, you can see my power, my ability to do all of that. And also I can refer to look at the creatures themselves,
look at the design within those creatures, look at the beauty within those creatures. Both of those are the honkala look at all of this.
And then comes the challenge
here is of suburbia. Now on the basis of all of this what we have said before, now a challenge comes to you should recall that are worshipping idols beneath me for Rooney Haleakala Dena min Dhoni. Now show me go ahead and show me what those idols and those statues that you have taken before me can bring meaning, what can they create? What can they create independently, show me anything for only motherhood, aka Latina, show me anything that they have created independently, in light of everything that I have just said, in light of these four signs that I have just brought to you before your very eyes.
Now, here's a very powerful argument is being put across you need to understand any what shift entails in order to appreciate this argument, you see, the place they venerated idols, they would sacrifice to idols, they would cry out to those idols in times of need,
they place the devotion, they love, an O in those idols, as well as on muscle panatela min dooney they gave some to Allah, but when we learn the game, something else and others are sorry, they gave part of that also to others beneath Allah. So Allah saying,
I created all of this.
Now, if they are do worship, like you do, then for sure, they should also be able to create something like I have created. If they have an inability to create out of nothing, it means that they are not worthy of worship.
How so it will claim or have Allah explained, he said that
the ability to create is something that only the true deity can have.
Once those people made ship with Allah, Allah said, Look, can they create?
If they cannot create it means that they have some shortcoming. It means that they cannot look after other people's needs. Because in ship, there is this feeling that there is someone out there that can take care of my needs. That is why people do ship. Those people did ship with idols. In our times people do ship with the saints, but why do they do ship? Because they really want to have that child and it's not happening and they just want to ask someone help me. supernatural help helped me. So Allah is saying, if they can't create anything, it means they won't be able to do anything for you whatsoever. If they can't do anything for you whatsoever.
Do they really deserve your worship?
They don't. Rooney, mother Haleakala.
They don't deserve that worship that you are giving them. But there is another. There's another implied understanding, which is that look, there is the creator. Then there is the creation. Where did these items fit in? are they up there with the creator? Well, of course, they can't create anything, nor can you bring anything to show that they can create. So I must mean that they are part of the creation, but they're not even part of the creation. I do. You created them. They're even below you. You're the one who fashioned them, called them out of the rocks. So you are more of a harlot than them. You are more of a Holic than them but you have taken them put them up there on the
alcoholic Allah subhanaw taala that is just wrong. That doesn't even make sense and that is why it's hot Allah Allah said Bella Bali Mona Phil Bonelli been Bali Bali moon. Allah said rather they are Bali moon, Allah is referring to Moshe recon. Bella use the word violet moon Why did he use the word vilely mood to describe which record
okay, but sure, Kenny would mean that there should be qamishli gone while I was referring to them doing [???] by the attribute of
anyone help someone had their hand up.
Okay, but Okay, so how is the oppression though?
How would you say a shift is actually a form of oppression of humanism.
Okay, you're pressing yourself? Can you expand on that?
You could say you're pressing yourself because it means that you close the door to gender for yourself and etc, etc. But there's more to it than that.
Okay, but anyway, they may be totally unaware of this
to their grave, and they don't know what's going on. People are taking them as earlier, etc, etc. It's done on two accounts. Number one, it is volume. Because you volume essentially means to misplace something. Something has a proper position, and you took it from that position and you put it in another position in a lower position. The idols they have a lowly position, and you venerated them up to the position of a last panel that you missed, place those idols so you don't learn from this perspective misplacing second perspective your devotion your love Your all these feelings these emotions, they should have only been placed with Allah subhanho wa Taala you miss place that
devotion into an idol. You're done. Don't Bella volley moon field one early movie?
What do you do? If any sensible person was to look at you? And the way you venerate these idols? He will see clearly you are in Bala been in misguidance. That is been very clear, very apparent, anyone with a sensible mind would be able to see this is wrong. And this is any something very silly.
Something very silly for you to be doing.
Okay, there's a few points Not to mention, I think we'd mentioned one of them after the soda would mention the other two. This is spirit behind this these two if this spirit is alive as expressed expressing his power and his supremacy and at the same time, he is expressing his contempt, his anger at the simple mindedness of those that do [???]. Those that engage in polytheism ferroni mother Haleakala, Vietnam, Indonesia, show me I need to say show me is any is more embarrassing for that person than to say to him, inform me tell me that I gotta go find something now to show.
I can't find anything. So Allah is showing us that he's angry with them, has contempt for them. And also the mind the app that they have is become very simple, very simple minded and II way of behaving and thinking about the world that they live in.
Mohammed environment earlier he was a huge number. Okay but this is let's conclude inshallah, this lesson of Tafseer so look man,
we are diverse have a lot ferroni Moroccan Latina mendonca volley Muna fee water the movie, we've given the seed now of these beautiful words. And we want to give two lessons, two lessons now two lessons that we learned. The first is notice how Allah brought the first and the hokum came second, what does that mean? there?
Is the reasoning,
the reasoning behind the hokum which is the end conclusion. What is the main point of your message the main point of the message is to tell the machinery corn don't do shake with me. Don't do she'll cook me rather turn to me in worship along but what came first?
Did Allah say this first and then say, because look at halaqa some our TV reality in Tirana, etc, etc, etc. Was it the other way around? It's the other way around. The First came the Illa. And the second came the hokum first Allah subhanaw taala told him the reasoning, why is it that Allah alone deserves their worship, the veneration, hello, Casanova TV, but look at how he created this, the skies above you and everything it contains, without any pillar support, and then he spread out the mountains and the creatures and then he sent down the rain, all of these four signs and then have the Hong Kong law.
Law. One thing we forgot to mention was Catherine mentioned when Allah said How the hell can law using look at my creation that I made without a [???]ty with no partner, no help, but nothing, I made it independently.
So How the hell can law is that how come? How come the end message is coming? After the reasoning came first. This again, is another not just our technique, but in fact, it is a lesson of, of tobio that when we communicate with one another, when you want to persuade somebody else, you want to encourage somebody else do good deeds, our wives, our children, and giving down to non Muslims, we should reflect. Allah knows how human beings operate. Human beings don't like computers, you add in the digits and then the formula and pop comes out. You know the right answer, no. Human beings have an emotional side. They have an emotional satisfaction. I read that behavioral psychologists say
that human beings have more than 450 different emotions. These are the complications with which Allah created us. He knows how we think how we operate, had the hukam been brought first and will be more difficult for those disbelievers to accept the message example, if you tell a non Muslim, look, if you don't believe in law, and accept the Prophet, you will burn in the hellfire. And the reason why you need to accept a lot is because he created all of this, and he bless you with all of this. And because you sent a messenger and look at the Quran, the miracles you are this is an uphill struggle now. He put the hokum out there in the beginning, and the person is on the defensive. And
now you have to, you have to try and work hard to give the reasonings had you done it the other way around the last panel that would have been easier. And Allah guides, those that want to be guided, if no one guidance for us, it doesn't matter, you do it this way or this way, we will not accept the message to him. So think about that, you know, even when raising your children, you need to appreciate that. And if you as a parent, always telling them, don't do this, do this, don't do this, do this, you're bringing the hook for the time. You need to bring the reason,
especially when you are nurturing them to become worshipers of Allah, my daughter, she's three years old. Now, we should encourage you to wear hijab, yet if we say to wear hijab, because you are Muslim, you need to
say I don't want to, it makes me uncomfortable, I'm hot, etc, etc. We come at it from another perspective. So look, Allah, He gave you everything that you have everything that you enjoy in life or came from Allah. Last year a few things, asked us to pray to Him. He asked us to dress like this. And he's asked women to wear hijab. So let's wear hijab, what do you try wearing it? Maybe the reasoning came first and it makes the it easier to accept the outcome. So think about this in your everyday life, how you can use it to do better to better other people. Yeah, your children, your family, your wives, people at work non Muslims.
The second lesson, notice how in the first verse, the verse that came before we left the Holocaust on our TV, Lady Ahmed, Allah was talking about his rubia
deserve to be in the second verse her the
mother Holocaust lady in the I mean dooney Allah moved from obeah to Oulu here,
the second verse here speaking about Now, why do you worship those idols, you should have been worshipping me, you should worship me instead, the difference in rubia and oluwo here will be explained here now, but we wanted to mention this, that part of this course in sha Allah is to take the seed and then add to it any points of cleanup that we can also deduce from these words. So,
the Hebrew BIA and alodia terms that many of us have heard quite a few times.
As for the word Toshi, before we get on to rubia, n kuno. Here at DOE hate the word comes from the root of what had what had this root as Ivanova is the very famous fourth century linguist said, it means to affirm singularity, or recognize singularity and that's why you get the word washing coming from this route.
Though he, it means more than just this it means to recognize and to affirm that this thing is one and only and nothing else shares in that okay. Now, when you apply this word, that we know what it means, linguistically to Allah subhanho wa Taala it takes on a vast meaning
of that is a last in terms of his rubia in terms of his Gulu here and in terms of illness now, in terms of his names and attributes, so what is the difference between these two we're not going to focus on the third one that the these two will be on here. Robo Pia is Allah you affirming and recognizing Allah alone has this attribute of lordship. Now, what does this attribute of lordship entail? It entails roughly three things.
Number one is that he is the
the one and only creator creating things out of nothing, coding for your code does Allah bring things into existence? It means he is a Sania that he is the one who not only creates but he owns in the absolute sense a lot owns us all. Every part of our flesh and bones is owned by a loss hunter and everything we see around us is owned by him.
these are the two main things The third is that Allah is sustaining.
From Rob we get the word burrup be murghab be can be used for the farmer, even the farmer can be more on being that he nurtures the seed, the soil and the crops to grow. So not only creates Not only does he own, but he sustains the universe, his existing events unfold every moment of every second. Now all of those events, Allah is the one who sustains them nurtures them, creatures need certain things, Allah is the one providing the needs. Yeah, there's one other aspect of rubia which I want to mention now, which is that people think Robo BIA all it entails, Allah is the Lord of the creatures, living things.
It is not just living things, a lot is the load of not just living things, but also things that are not living here, inanimate things, everything that you see, tangible things, Allah is the load of that two.
And a third thing Allah is the load of events,
any occurrence that happens in this world, whether that be a transfer of energy, here, the passing of light,
any occurrence that happens, he is the load of that to
nothing happens, except that he is a load of that thing that happened. Do you understand that point?
Now, the reason why you mentioned that is because later on
we will come to the muscle of a fairly bad the actions of people. are they bringing the actions into existence independently of allies, Allah still have those actions that they do be there good actions or evil actions.
When we go to this masala we will be able to understand this better because we know that is the rub and that doesn't just mean living things it doesn't just mean nonliving things in fact it means every single thing that comes into occurrence Allah said what hawara cliche he is the rub everything Allah said the inoculum on his coalition that is Rubio.
Now Hulu here. So you singled out and you affirmed a lot alone a start up and we spoke where everything that that entails. And now a law spoke about himself as having this towhead in the sense of Hulu here What does Hulu here refer to Hulu here essentially refers to a bother, but this word
has become so misunderstood
has become something that we look at in a very ritualistic sense Riba is just this, doing this praying, doing these movements, fasting in the month of Ramadan, etc, etc, giving this money in soccer, this is a bad okay? No, no, a bad
is much more than that is much more than that. So when Allah says that he is the one who is only entitled to your blue here, meaning your worship, it means a number of things. Number one, it refers to your inward feelings of or of love, of home, of fear,
of trust, of reliance, the list goes on these feelings, these very intense human emotions that every one of us has experiences. A law is Jude, the most intense forms of those feelings. Only He alone is worthy of those feelings, your love you love your parents, your children, and the many things in life you love, but allows love in you is the greatest nothing comes close to how much you love Allah.
You fail many things. But do you fear anyone more than Allah? No, Allah deserves it. I pay him more than anybody else this comes under law here.
Look at it from another perspective. Allah wants us to make their head with him with regards to this, that we make all of these feelings for him alone. Look at how Allah wants to ask to have a relationship with him, alone wants us to trust in him the most alone wants us to rely on him the most to love him the most, to fear him the most. how Allah wants us to be with him. Amazing. Looking at it from that perspective. Allison sort of sort of buckled what you said like a burden on me. For me,
when my slave asks you about me, tell him No, he didn't say tell him.
He didn't say for me curry.
Look at other verses like this, when they ask you we as aluna Canyon Road, and they ask you about to Seoul, Korea, Russia and Iran, say for Mohammed to them, that the soul is a matter of mind, you have not been given much knowledge of it alone. And they ask you about the moon's say to them, these are our feet, these are science, these are fixed times. They ask you about this, to them say to them, but when it came to this is aluna, aka, either the anime or they ask you about me, not him or herself. Now you stand to one side, this is a matter between me and my slave in me. And I am close to him as part of law. how Allah wants us to be with him. And he doesn't want you to be with anyone
else like that. You are the closest to Allah and your feelings of love, reverence and who they are due to him and him alone. That is what a lot become so angry with these people that how do you show that I do. He doesn't even deserve it from any perspective things that you ought to show me show to show me that love that veneration, you're supposed to call out to me not to them. And that is why it is it has the highest penalty, whoever the ship with a law in the law. And the law said whatever you do, it is possible that I may forgive it, meaning I may forgive it even if you don't ask me to forgive you for it. In the law, you should actually be here. Roma.
Roma, Dona Derek means you could do anything
and I can't forgive it either.
If you don't make tau before you die, but in your field, if you make schilke with me and you don't make tau but before you die, then you have no forgiveness.
Allah said in another verse that whoever does it could mean that he has made Jenna Harmon that person, you cannot enter that and need to really appreciate why it is such a huge crime you need to appreciate what the law wants from us in terms of the hate and Hulu here. And what is amazing in the Quran and the Sunnah is that the, the focus is not on to hate or robia it's not about affirming, Allah is the Lord for that is something a lot ingrained within every soul of ours. Rather the focus is on Hulu here you know is your Lord yet you are giving some of you are a bird in the above and the way we just explained now to other than Him as though you're sharing it out mean dooney to others
Okay, so that is any short after the Massara short theological lesson about the difference between here and here. But the end conclusion is this what is the link then between Allah moving from robia in that verse and then to Oulu here rubia to Here is the link between the two. The first verse is Hello person out the lady Ahmed. This is how he created with anything. But then the second verse is about his right to be worshipped pulu here, what is the link between the two? The fact that there is an entity out there that has certain attributes, namely the ability to create from nothing to sustain other beings
follows on from that, that He is also the only one you should worship and he is a very natural progression. He is the one who created and sustains all it means that your highest feelings of love or fear should only be directed towards him. And the way you direct them towards him is not in any way. No it is according to the suddenness of the last messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam
