There's brothers and sisters, we continue in Sharla with the study of this amazing Surah sulaco heavy the 57 chapter report on and this is lesson number four in our chart we will cover verse number seven, eight and nine in this lesson inshallah. So we are we have, we said that sort of headache can be divided into five sections. And the first section was about the greatness of a lot, we heard the very well known verse, who will over we'll find out in law, he has these four unique names that he has the first, the last, the highest and the closest. And that should have increased our estimation a lot in our hearts that we heard that level group was an hour to hour that mark is
in full control of the universe. And that should increase us in our reliance alone, we really believe and realize that he is the one who has control of the universe, we should make us feel like we should be able to trust him a lot more than we usually do. We also heard that he knows everything that goes into the earth and everything that comes out of it as well. A lot of knowledge is supreme, no one has knowledge, not the knowledge Allah has it is perfect knowledge. So all of section one, in a way is bringing us into the Obama law. You only hear that in the beginning that everything is praising a lot in this entire universe. Since an eternity it makes you It makes you you know
reevaluate your belief in the greatness of Allah. Now when it brings you to the point of all then section two begins with the words we're early, we'll be learning what are some really wonderful magical mustafina fee. Now believe in Allah, like truly believe in Allah and His messenger and spend from that which Allah gave you as a trust? You see, there's a connection between section one and section two in that before asking you to do something to spend your money in the causes that please Allah, Allah began first by praising himself.
What is the link between the two? The instruction in the second section in verse number seven, and everything that came before? Before it? It is, it kind of is it goes a little bit like this. If If you ask the chant, okay, let's say you asked your child to pray. Okay, let's say it's time for Isha. And you say, listen, it's time to pray. Go ahead and pray your Asia. Now most children, okay, they may rebel against that instruction. And they may ask why or they may put their heads down and pretend like they're ignoring you. So and so forth. Right? And then you think to yourself, okay, I need to encourage this child to pray because it doesn't really get ya nice to pray. So you'd be
like, Look, you should pray to Allah. Because all the nice thing you have in your life, the one who gave them to us, Allah. Allah is the one who gave you a very life lies is the one who gave you your parents and was the one who gives you all your toys and all the nice things that you like, don't you think you should say thank you to Allah in return.
The child will then say, Okay, I think he's made a good point, isn't it? So let me go ahead and pray my salon. But it would have been a lot easier had you given the reasoning before you gave the instruction? If you stopped at the other round and said, you know what child, think about all the amazing things you have in your life and realize that the one who gave it to you was not me or your mother, it was a law.
That, don't you think you should say thank you by offering the Isha salon?
Now you may say no, but most probably, he's thinking, you know what? That's a good idea. Yes. So this is the way the law spoke to us. before Allah gave us the instruction to spend our money and to really believe in him, if he inspired our hearts, to be more humble towards him, which would make us more accepting of the instructions.
Yes, this is how there is a coherence between section one and section two. So what is section two? What is the first verse army looby law he was fully
believed in Allah and the messenger or his messenger so long earlier? Somebody asked a question in which is this what are you said it was revealed in Medina, when the majority of the people are all Muslims? Why then is Allah instructing the Muslims to have a man? How do we understand that? Anyone offer an answer to that? If you're a Muslim, and someone saying you have the man, you say, Have you My name is Muhammad?
Do you want me to be
how do you explain that in the Quran? Allah saying to Muslims, I mean, you're assuming Yes.
Have conviction. Anyone else offered explanation?
being asked to believe and you're already Muslim, do you understand? Yes.
So what could have trusted Allah?
Perhaps? Is it easier to understand? Which is that just because you have just because you have faith, doesn't mean you have complete faith?
Isn't it? Is your Eman like the amount of the prophets of Allah that said, Of course not. Our faith in Allah is not as strong as the faith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and even within our own lives, it fluctuates as a person, what sets our salaries A man came to me said yasunaga, with you, you know, it's like my mind is in the heavens, with my family and my children. And I feel like I'm on Earth.
Am I allowed to handle he said his handle? The interesting thing is that when he was going to the person to speak to him and ask him the question, am I gonna feel he meant a look around the world. Number two, was the highest man in the bar in the home while the person is working. And he said, you know what this happens to you. I'm with you. Okay, and I'm
listening to him speaking about a lion mighty man is in the sky. And when I'm at home with my children and playing, and I forgotten about, and I think I
heard that and he said, You know what, I have the same problem. Let us both go to the processor.
Think about that, somehow, they will not, you know, they were so far away from complacency. They never once took the man as a guaranteed ticket to Paris. So they came to the bottom and they explained the situation the person sent us out. So sometimes your email is going to be high, and sometimes it's going to be low. It is a natural part of being a Muslim. The problem is, when it's persistently low.
The problem is, is that when it's so low, that now you're doing hard things. Now you're having negative thoughts about loss of power, but Okay, that's a different discussion. But as for you know, a fluctuation that goes up or down, this is a natural thing. So when you hear in the Quran, Allah asking the Muslims to have a man, it is what is known as the holy man, to shore up your faith to have real thing.
Yes, don't have a superficial faith have a deep faith have a complete faith, I mean, who believed he was fully and in the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu as a as a true messenger of Allah
and then the instruction came was unfaithful and spend your money yes, spend your money on what you spend your money on the causes that would please Allah and they are many.
Let us brainstorm what are some of the things that if you spend your money on Allah would be happy with you?
What comes to mind? Is
the car okay so if you spent your money was a guy who does not go to
poor people, okay, so giving your money away to poor people would please alarm true or not?
Of course, if you do it out of faith
Do you have the orphans? Okay, similar orphans, you know, no father. So they live a very impoverished life so you help them with that please a lot of course, what else besides helping poor people? Yes.
Somebody jumped in the education, say three times you sound like a politician?
Yes. Education? I think you mean by that Islamic education, isn't it? Yes. So helping. Yes, establishing madrasa or a university or any institute that will teach people the religion of Allah is a cause, which you should give to because you know, we will please love
somebody who asked a question, what is more pleasing to Allah?
Once in the business, everyone is very eager, Mashallah. What is more pleasing to Allah to donate your money, to help a poor person
meaningful to the food and drink or to donate your money to a poor person, meaning he is spiritually poor?
He lacks faith in education in the religion of the law. Which one is more valuable to Allah?
Or to you?
And I just started with 30. But don't think about the s'mores so soon have babies?
What is more beloved to Allah? What do you think?
The second one, giving your money to a producer, to teach people to go along, is more beloved to God, than saving a person from starvation.
Because it benefits that person's hereafter? Who agrees with
me? Because you heard me speak about this before?
you agree. So all the people on the back, they totally disagree that
you don't agree. Do you think that saving the starving person is more beloved to God than building the fidessa? Am I right?
Some people are very confused. And this is a trick question. Don't get involved in this.
It's an interesting question, isn't it?
Somebody may say, you look helping a humanitarian cause must be more virtuous than hoping a religious course. Is that right?
If it's about if the criteria to determine the truth of this question is about the benefit it gives to the recipient?
is another benefit that gives to the recipient. Let me just finish I'll come to you, then, we can discuss the benefit of saving a person from starvation is the life
but saving a person from spiritual starvation? The benefit is saving him from the hellfire.
Well, when you put it like that, it seems as though saving a person from spiritual starvation is more beloved to Allah than saving a person from starvation. And if you think about the mission, or the promise of the law, where did he come to eliminate poverty?
he may come and solve his teachings came to eliminate poverty. But is that his mission? To come to read the world of poverty? It was it wasn't what was his mission
to do was change the soul to rap to get rid of obesity is to change the world.
lifting to what people can levitate,
lift them towards me.
towards Allah, okay.
To save them from anything
from the Hellfire, thank you very much. His mission was to save people from the hellfire. Do you agree or not? And to note that find a way to have this Yes or no? So
that means that our answer to the previous question, which was to help someone in spiritual starvation is more virtuous than physical starvation is in line with the mission of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
isn't it? So when Allah says and this was what people mean by Giacomo stuff that Athena feeding the mind should jump to spending money in a way that will help give rise to the religion of alarm processes.
And helping poor people, of course, is something virtually no one doubts that but the problem here is that people they underestimate the value of spending their money to properly
gave the message of the property no longer so and that is the tragedy that if you looked on TV now there are many charity appeals taking place. In fact, every single Islamic channel at this time has it is has a feud going on, isn't it? Mashallah people are very generous. Mellor would want to, like set this apart. But if you saw two appeals, one appeal was in emergency appeal about an earthquake that happened to some devastated people, versus an appeal to establish the first Islamic University in the UK.
Which one? Do you think we'll get one one?
Emergency disaster or university?
Emergency emergency, isn't it?
But there's a problem simply missing. And you're gonna
say no, that is not what we're saying.
At the very least, we should do both. But in reality, our focus should be more on saving people with the education of the religion than it is to save you from starvation. See, a shift in our mentality needs to happen.
So I mean, we'll be learning a lot. Slowly, we'll enter people in a job interview. You can the wording of this verse, Allah said, and stem from that which you may do mustafina the word Mustapha Levine, is approval of the word was tough love. And the word was tough love, it comes from the root word, hello. And the word hello, it means to be a successor to something or to take someone or some things place. They call the Muslim leader what
hanifa from the same root reason being is because abubaker subete when he became the leader, they called him halifa to rosu de la,
meaning the successor of the Messenger of Allah. And then when the robber became the next leader, they call him What halifa do Holly fatty rasulillah so you can kind of see where this is going to get a little bit difficult. So they said Let us think of another term for our leader and they came up with a medium of meaning. So I'm gonna hop off, they said was the first to be called the leader of the faithful, a beautiful meaning. So Allah said here, spend from the things that Allah has made, you will stuff left. What does that mean? It means that your money your assets, are something which came to you and will eventually leave.
You are not the sole owner of this money. Rather, this money came to you either because of inheritance or because you traded with someone and they gave you that money and it would leave you in much the same way. You will not be able to take it with you when you die.
See, the law is telling you to look at your money in a different way.
We know that many of you will obsessed with money, isn't it? Well, you should have been. German law says
that there are some people they love money with a serious passion
is interesting. The Psychology of this is some people they validate themselves based on their salary, isn't it?
Give an example if you hear his brother Mashallah, he has a six figure salary, immediately the
six figure salary Mashallah probably you don't even know he prays five times a day or do you think somebody up there because in your mind, salary, money, that's what gives you you know that that is what you base your estimation on others on. And it's the same estimation you use for your own self. So much so that if you don't a lot of money, you don't think much of yourself? Is that true? opposite is true as soon as you guess, like pay rise or shall become the biggest gangster in the neighborhood, isn't it? Yeah. What happened? Did you just have a 2% increase in your salary? And now you look down on the people
always saying you almost tusla that's why even your money that money came to you and will leave you. So don't be so obsessed with it. And tied to it. Another meaning of the word was tough love, is that you are a rookie, you know, two rookies will kill his agent. Yeah, let me show you how. Let me tell you how this works. So there's a businessman, he has some products, he wants to sell them. He's not gonna sell them and so he's gonna ask you to be his agent. So he gives you let's say 10 iPhone x's. Yeah, give you 10 iPhone Xs. Obviously ship ask them and you say listen, what is the one for you? So we say no, maybe good. 10 iPhone Xs, sell them?
sell them for me sell them in? I don't know go to Westfield or something. So
now the thing is, as a rookie Are you allowed to as I was saying
Keep one for yourself.
This isn't our cell nine.
What's wrong with that?
Is anything wrong with that?
So probably isn't.
If you said to sell the iPhones for 100 pounds each
and instead of selling for 100 you sell it for 50 everyone's going crazy. Why
is he allowed to do that? He's not allowed to do that. He must sell the iPhones
in the place that you said for the amount that you said without before you choose not that's your job. Ally saying your money is much like that.
I am the one who gave it to you. And I'm stipulating for you we've spent it so
that if you misuse this money, it is offensive to Allah. If you waste your money, it is offensive to Allah because he's the one who gave it to you. And he told you to spend it in certain ways. For example, don't spend it on hard things. Now if you spend your money on how long not is it only an offense to buy the home thing, but it is an insult to alarm because he gave me the honey you told you study on how things go hand things do you follow? And he told you to spend your money in good causes? Part of that is to look after yourself and your family. No one disagrees on this. But is that the end of it? Is it allowed for a person to think that his money should only be used to take
care of his own family
and to build for them the biggest most amazing house in Redbridge
Is anything wrong with that? So look, Habibi, I, you know, it's my money. I look after my family, my children, take them on as many holidays as possible. Build for them a big house. It's my money at the end of the day, isn't it?
You also give others but he says What do you mean give others money?
I work nine to five.
Okay and possible, is pretty difficult. has been a lot of time working, putting effort into that. And you know, it's more money at the end of day. What can I use it for my friends and family?
Okay, so what
are you said? How old are you?
Nine Marsha, Marsha. I don't know what I was doing at nine. But I was not attending to tell you that. Or you've said that in response to this person who's saying he should spend his money on his family and his home and taking care of him. So
you should do that because he'd give to other people as well. People that are more in need because it will benefit him. Meaning maybe after he does, right. But again, he says listen is my money though.
Why are you telling me how to spend my money? What do you say to them?
This is not
okay, so he said that it is not actually your money.
Excellent. It is a trust given to you by a law. So you can't just go without food yourself. You need to think about how to spend this money just like if you were an agent of the businessman.
So this verse is very powerful because
honestly speaking, it is making you look at your money in a different way altogether. And the effect it should have is to diminish your attachment to your money and become less miserly and really such that you end up spending your money on those causes that please the loss of Panama is a linguistic gem is versus go at the end Allah say Stella de la Armando fillerina amin Kumar and tabula
rasa is that those who do listen will have true belief and spend the money law home or general Kevin they will have a road that is cubbies yes can be meaning vast and great. But when it came to instructing them to spend, Allah said spend the magic.
The word member is a combination of two words min and max and min in this case means some. So when it came to ask you to give us It gives some of your mind and in return, what will you get? Not some reward, but you will get a June COVID you will get great reward, vast reward. Allah asks you for a little and he gives you so much more in return. Yes, this is how a lot encourages the sleep
Who are you dealing with? You're not dealing with a miserly God, you are dealing with the generous loss account. May Allah make us generous. May Allah help to cure the greed that we have in our heart, I mean,
Okay, the next verse. On a similar note, one man accomplice took me to the builder and what is the matter with you, that you don't believe in Allah, the word man a comb.
It is the way the way the scholars of the sea they express the meaning, as they say, just Toby's, which means to reprimand or to chastise, someone is asking, why don't you it is likely to see what's wrong with you, man. What's wrong with you? manacle that you don't believe in on again? What do you have true faith? It isn't, there is a connection between a man and in fact, faith and spending is very obviously, which is that if you truly do believe in Allah, you will spend your money. Because it's when you believe in a cause, then you're willing to sacrifice for it. That is why these two ideas are brought together. So let's see what is the matter you don't believe in Allah wa saluja,
they will come they took me to Europe. Whilst this as well is the wild halia which means not. And that was, once the Messenger of Allah is calling you, to your master.
See Allah saying, not only am I telling you to have a belief in me, but there is this messenger of mine as well,
which you love very much, and who you are attached to you, and a lot of people,
even those that are very far away from a lot. When you speak to them about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam immediately begin to listen. And the hearts we can regard soft, if you notice is low. We just love hearing about the processor because of his mercy and His gentleness and his formidable character. So like bringing him into the pictures or whatever suya. And even your messenger, he is calling you, to your master loss of power, the word of love is used to kind of express those into the feelings you should have towards law, that he is the one who nurtures and cherishes us.
What are the alpha and Allah has already taken from you the visa, the mythique means the covenant, which covenant has a lot taken with mankind. Here they said there are three opinions. The first opinion is that is referring to the covenant that a lot of humanity
before they were even brought into this earth, which is mentioned in science, so little out off white book, when your master took from the loins of all of the children and ask them a question as to be able to become Am I not your master?
And what did they say in response or rubella? They said, no doubt about it. Every person here, including, you know, john, that work him as well. All of them, they answered in the positive, we believe in you as our master.
Then what happened is that life happened. And when life happened, they forgot about that covenant. Now, no one remembers that code. I'm not saying I do. I'm sure you don't either.
But here are the scholars explained that even though the physical memory was taken away, the spiritual imprint was left in the form of a filter.
So every human being they internally know that Allah is the master. They internally believe that Allah is the master, what is the proof of this? Many proofs, this verse in and of itself as a proof, because in that verse inside of Allah, after saying that they responded upon Bella, yes, Allah then said, and Taku, Yeoman prt in akuna.
So that you will not be able to say, of the Day of Judgment, we had no idea about
the beginning of time and the end of time, a lie saying, we took this oath now so that you remember not in this life, you will remember all the way into the hereafter. And you won't be able to say, Hello, we never knew you or you were the God.
We can't make that claim now, because we remember that from time before we were even created in this world, as souls that you asked us this question, and we do believe that is how powerful the fitrah is. No human being genuinely believes that there is no God. Rather, every human being knows deep down inside. And this happens. And finally, tells us the story, which you mentioned a few times about the wishek in the in the middle of the ocean, is that the idol worshiper he's worship
The statue for 70 years vision army you know 70 is is in banged out and either Allah says that in the moment that he goes out into the sea, anyone being on a boat okay? It starts to rock in the ocean is awesome to fluttered into it. Allah says that when a storm ruza
Cohen Buddha law says like they are clouds he picked up about to come down on this person. What does he do in that moment?
He calls out to Allah mostly seen a lot of detail verses like he never worship anyone except that alone. From the bottom with Allah save me. Where did this come from? You said you're an atheist. in Hyde Park corner, you said you're atheist.
Now in the ocean, you're saying you believe in Allah. This is what the client is saying is that people who may say to the contrary, but deep down inside they do believe I will show you in moments of desperation. Yeah, further law mostly seen on TV, even Allah said, Moses, sincere prayers devoted to Allah.
So the first meaning of mytho in this verse is that covenant, the covenant of animalism is as cool as let us call it that. The second meaning of Covenant here is the actual, the intimate. So what is the meaning here, the meaning is that ally selling you to have real faith, because he's telling you to a lot through the FDA, and he's saying the province alone is calling you to the same thing to have real faith. And a third thing is also quoting you, which is either the neath up the covenant of other or your own intellect itself. Think about that. The law is saying human intellect. It tells a human being that there is a God Allah who deserves to be worshipped. You don't need a book to come
down from the sky tell you that you don't need a messenger to come unto you.
In fact, your own mind tells you that it's quite astonishing, isn't it? Is there any proof in the Koran to suggest that Apple can guide a human being to the truth?
Yes, there is. In fact, I think all of you know this proof. It is a science pseudo book,
where Allah says that the people that are going to be flung into the Hellfire are not protected from that, though we asked what led you to this fate? They will say local ness Marin. Oh, now you Merck wouldn't feed us Have you heard this?
So the law said that their response was, if only we had listened or used our intellect, we wouldn't have been in the blazing fire.
The proof came from the old time.
Listen to the wording No, could not smell Oh, now, how do we only listen to meaning listen to the prophets of the marvelous and the revelation?
Or use our intellect. Allah never said one afternoon and use our intellect. Because had Allah said, and somebody would have said, See, intellect alone isn't enough to give you something. Allah separate is it No, either or, it is true the hearing the revelation is the stronger evidence and proof. But your intellect was also giving you a sign as though the human intellect tells human beings that listen, there is a creator, we did come out of nothing. And the one who created us he deserves to be worshipped.
So this is the meaning of our content. Amitabh is a secondary
covenant of other second is our human intellect. The third, they said is the treaty, or the pledge of Africa, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He took a pledge from the Muslims and Africa that they will be faithful and loyal to him, as well as many other things. So that could also be one of the meanings of this as well.
Even come to more meaning that the verse ends if you would only be true believers. Now, what does this all mean? All together? Allah in this verse, He is expressing anger towards Muslims, that hold back in having true faith in Allah and sacrificing for his cause. Why you like this for when I am giving you so many reasons to believe in me, I gave you the coupon I gave you the province that allowed us to even play something inside of you known as the fitrah calling you to the truth. I mean, how many more things do you want? Seriously, the proofs of all around you. Why do you hold back on having physical muscle? So the real impact this verse should have on the listener? We should
make him feel embarrassed. What is the matter with me? I should fix myself up. I should reevaluate my faith in the lawsuit.
Power Meter line increases in RV man and other proof another lesson sir we can learn from these two verses is that a man is more than just
is more than just accepting the law as you got
it it is very interesting story about the police in the corner because in the beginning a lot tell us about the police that when he was asked, Why didn't you about and his response was what? And I say to him, I'm better than him. We know this right? He said I was I'm better than him come up with an email. No, he looked at you made me out of fire. You made him out of soil. Imagine speaking back to a lot. Seriously, when you hear a child speak back to their mother, it makes you feel
good makes you feel frustrated and silent. You know, there was a social experiment in Egypt. I don't know why they did this. But they didn't experiment, right. So they the pharmacy, and there's two actors, the plane father and son, if you see this and the son he deliberately, you know, he's being rude to his father. And he's, you know, it's like, you know, his father's talking about when you start to be gluten. Now the pharmacist, okay, on the other side, he's watching he's getting really irritated and the the son or the son he starts to provoke his body more speed even rude to his father, then the harm is caused around the son of counter any punches. The head is what are you
doing this is your father and they will not listen Listen, listen. Okay, is it just what do you mean what kind of experiment is this? So they wanted to show that you know, back home,
there is of the parents is very strongly felt in the minds of the people.
This is me speaking back to Allah.
And then interesting, the conversation continues. He says, After Allah says, you know, you are a gene, you are you are an outcast. And my curse is on you. He says Allah be found the Leela Yogi Berra, when he says, My master, give me some time until the day of judgment. And look at the wording here. What did he call Allah?
My master Robbie, he said, My master.
So does he accept the law as his pastor? Yes or no? Is he a Muslim?
He's not really glad you said about a
man is very strong British. Mashallah. Is he a Muslim? Yes or no. But he you said that he accepts it as master he called a pub. In fact, he said Robbie, monster.
So does he believe in a lot?
Do you think?
So they said
he believes he doesn't obey. So does he have
you said yes.
To forgiveness, inshallah we forgive you.
Brothers, does he have email? This is checked on a Muslim you saw? It's not what you just said that he called allies up.
He doesn't listen, ah, very good. He doesn't listen to a lot. See, Emma is more than accepting a lot as your God. It is about listening to about being on submitting yourself to Allah. Now, can you submit to your master without showing him any acts of submission, any acts of subservience? Can you do that? If you saw, you know, give the example of two siblings. Young sibling so what annoys the other and they say
they say hello to mom.
And the younger daughter, she says, I don't know how she goes. Yeah, what are you gonna do? She was a puppy and slim.
Up Muslim. A PSA for one day.
So the oldest, the old the understanding so okay, that's fine. Now you're Muslim?
Yeah. What next? What's gonna happen next time.
Give me some more of this. jump out the window. Yeah, the idea of being a slave in necessity is doing something.
This is the way
they said EMR is more than simply affirming faith in God. It is about expressing faith through actions. So the early apostles define the non as old wearable statement and action statement and action. It's not about saying you believe is about saying and showing you believe.
And this is the verse these verses are telling us the same message because Allah saying believe in me properly and show that you believe that
by spending your money,
belief and action together, okay? The last verse for today inshallah, Allah that says, who will lead the universe in our apathy to the universe, that Allah He is the one who sent down to his slave, meaning the prophets that along with them to be, you know, signs that are described as being big enough, the word big enough is approve of the word big enough. Okay, and they weren't big enough, it means something which is clear. And something that clarify something else. That is what they refer to as evidence is, yes, evidence is so alive saying that a lot in dissent the processor with a message, he equipped him with compelling evidence is like what
the court caught on, and living miracle and compelling evidence, what else?
What other evidences are there for the truthfulness of Islam? That was that the person was equipped with a miracle or evidence is
the greatest grade one the processor that you can go and see that this was a real man that lived. Okay. But what about when you were there that time? What else would be considered a compelling proof?
The match, okay, the story of the breakfast, not jelly, true, a compelling proof. Anything else?
What about the life of the President himself, his seal is not a proof is all that when you read about his life, you can't help but believe this man was not in it for the money, not in it for the fame or any for the power he was doing it for Allah. And when you think about
his honesty and integrity in the in the face of such strong opposition and his sacrifice, you start to appreciate this man must have come with something. Yes. And when you look at the way he lives, you know, we went to Medina, they had an exhibition to see the exhibition to close it Now, unfortunately, but they had an almost life size replica of his apartment.
And they said that if a person was to raise his hand up, he will not be able to stretch his arm up because how low the ceiling of the house of the person was.
Yes. And when the person used to go into such depth, his wife, Alicia would have to move her legs inwards to give him space. Think about
how he used to live, I think is in Medina. They were castles. People had castles people lived lavish lives in Medina. But he chose not to,
even though he could. Yes. Isn't that a sign as well? So am I saying that we gave you plenty of science?
Why do we give him all the signs do
in order to take you out from darknesses notice the plural of the word into light, the singular and known for reasons unlucky the person put on and all of these miracles is in order to help humanity come out of the darkness and into the light somehow. This was his mission. What a beautiful mission is well, this is your mission, your role in life is to help people find a lost count. And the
that misguidance of people is described with the word Voodoo maths, which means darkness is not the singular darkness. But darkness is because there are many forms of misguidance when it came to the truth of guidance alone referred to with the word and knew which is the singular, light, only one light. Only one truth is only one song something beautiful is if you think about that, what kind of darkness is we're around the time of the bush?
What kind of things would you describe as being misguided to their time? What were they doing?
okay, so burying the female babies alive, out of a sense of shame as adopters no doubt what else?
Very good. the very worst kind of discard is worshiping others beneath Allah.
Now, let us move to the 21st century.
What type of darkness is do we find people living in today?
Of course they still are
talking about the trending knob. This is what type of doctors are trending in this moment in time. Yes sir.
Social Bravo account on social media.
The young brother said the social media, maybe his dad told him to say this.
What do you think? Is that one of the doctors?
Okay, let's stick to his will come to your show. What do you think about what you said social media he described as one of the doctors is now the process of him came to take example.
What do you think?
Facebook has heard on
Instagram that mosquito has worse?
Honestly, what do you think social media is one of the opposite as well is
is has been used and how is it being used?
Which are which is okay. So social media, the brother said, popularly it is being used not to give out, but to get people to dance with money, okay to do ridiculous things in front of a camera,
and etc, etc. So it may be being used as an instrument to spread. Other immoralities doctor says, Okay, let's put that to what, what other? You know, Doctor says do we find in our times?
Yes, Uncle you said
material is okay, at disproportionate value placed in material goods. I think a lot of us suffer from this darkness. Yes. Why is this such a bad thing?
One of the reasons is because once you become obsessed with the material objects in this world, you become detached from the last parameter. It gives a rustiness in the heart, it makes your heart become hard black stone. And no doubt it is a prevailing darkness in this world. And even novices speak about the effects of materialism, for example, speak about narcissism. You know, the other day someone, they asked me a question, can I divorce my husband? Because he's a narcissist
says pauwela interesting way of speaking.
But this is a problem. Yes, that is narcissistic behavior, people that are so self involved. They don't care about anybody else. Is that not a product of being very materialistic person? Yes. What are the doctors is?
In today's time,
war and terrorism, martial law. Very good. Are you speaking on behalf of anyone here? No, does not help electrification, really appreciate it. Yes, very good. Terrorism was people, you know, going to war with other countries on a pack of lies, like weapons of mass destruction. Let's not get into that now. Anyway, yes, let's talk about this. So the reason I'm asking this is because we need to think about the Dean of law
in a very relevant way, the professor Larson came with a mission, we are as follows We are supposed to extend his mission. So if he came to remove people from darknesses, in his time, we to by extension must come to remove our people from darknesses, which means we just need to know what that is, is they are in and then in order to bring them into an rule, the light, the light of Islam. One of the interesting things about referring to guidance as light is that light expresses life.
And that's almost ironical, because when people think about becoming better Muslims, they think about having to live a life, which is a bit more sacrifice, a bit more difficult bit more suffering, the odaka, isn't it? Well, I say no, my guidance is a no, it is the light that enlightens the mind, and it brings happiness into your life as well. Another thing about light as opposed to darkness is that light, it allows you to see the reality of things, isn't it in darkness, you cannot make out what is what blessing, my guidance gives you the ability to see right from wrong, and to see the reality of the world as well. Because we live in a time of confusion. When people don't know right
from wrong, lie saying my god is it is good. It gives you that clarification. Finally, Allah ends by saying we're in a lot of big hoopla
that no doubt about it. The inner is useful emphasis, no doubt about it a lot. With regards to all of you, not all for writing to names I've wrote Beautiful Names. They usually translated as gentle or compassionate and merciful. But there is a difference between our oath and the Rahim though both of them sent around the mercy of law.
According to Dr. Xu refers to
refers to when somebody doesn't want to
Have to come to somebody else. You don't need to see someone and you feel for them. You don't want them to suffer.
Or a roof refers to a lot being like that. A lot doesn't want people to suffer a lot doesn't want people to have harm in their life. Allah subhanho wa Taala is Rahim which is the opposite, which means a lot. Instead, he loves for goodness to come to you. He loves that benefit comes to you, this is how they complement each other. But it is about not wanting harm to come to you, but actually is about wanting good to come to you. And both complement each other beautifully. In the context of this verse is an amazing lesson.
Ally st you have true faith in Him, spend your money for his sake, be true, but listen, to listen to your prophets that allow it
and then Allah says that he loves you. And he only wants what's best for you. Because usually when people think about laws religion, and unless then they think they have to miss out in order to become closer to Allah or not.
Especially back home in Pakistan, if you speak about, you know, if someone sees you praying, see the system wearing the hijab for the first time. It's like medical mode turned on? Is that the age of death to know what's going on with you? I don't know aspirations to go to university to become someone get rid of this bit.
Job, sister, you're going to become a leader one day, no this thing around, you know, people say we're not going to be able to find a good rijsttafel that's the one you're not going to get any good reason okay? No, we're gonna marry you take that thing off your head. Take a Think of your face. This is a stuff a lot. But this is what our people say. No, the Bible, no Muslim say
no, is what I'm saying. It is true, isn't it? So when people think of religion, they think it's a curse, not a blessing. Allah is turning it on its head, I think in the law become law for him. Now what I asked you to do, it is for your own good. It is now which will elevate you not lower you What is wrong with you? And so Pamela end with the Halles of the process of setting Buhari
now once they were a group of women and children, prisoners of war, they were approaching the province that along with him, and he was flanked by his companions. He saw a woman searching frantically for her child, young infant. When she found her child, she clutched him, put him close to her chest and began to breastfeed him.
At that moment, the Prophet sallallahu lucidum he turned to a compound and he said, Does anyone have you think that she would throw her child into a fire?
Look how he sees that moment to teach him a lesson. This is the teaching quality of the processor. They said jasola if she could, if she could help it, she wouldn't.
I mean, there would have to be something really devastating for her to do that. She would never do that. The person said, Allahu our hand will be a rebel. He mean have he knew what to do? He said, a loss of power. Allah has more mercy, love and care for his slaves than this Lady for her child support and love.
I mean, it really puts things into perspective, isn't it? When you think of a loving man or Rahim, you need to appreciate that a share of that Mercy is embedded inside every teaching of Islam. Every single teaching of Islam has a share of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala That is why Allah says Allah be decree law he takoma in multiple loop. That is it not in the remembrance of Allah that your hearts, they find peace and tranquility. See what Allah was for you is what you want yourself. You are just resisting it. Don't resist rather embrace it. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala make us true believers in Him. May Allah increases Eman And may Allah make us generous is low. Heather was at a
