00:01:47 --> 00:02:30

Can everyone hear me okay in the back? Yes. Welcome brothers and sisters. This is I believe lesson number five is it lesson number six, we are studying the surah of the four answers of how to use the iron. And this is the 57th chapter at the beginning. I just want to recap because it has been a while since we began. We said that the entire surah can be divided up into five sections the first and the last appear together because the first section are super heavy, is about our belief in the last panel that we learned in the first section about the knowledge of Allah we learned that there was an incredible verse 101 with Volume One Barton analyze the first or last the most high as well

00:02:30 --> 00:03:14

as the closest then verses about his knowledge. So that first section was all about the belief in Allah. Then the last section the fifth section is about our belief in the prophets that along with it was silom alone will say during the last section, yeah, you will Latina Latina, amin will be Assouline believers faith Allah be mindful of Allah, and believe in His Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the people of the book, the Christians and the Jews, they are told that if you now continue to have faith in the profits of the long run, and so after having believed in your profits, musar and ERISA, then you deflating Atlanta, you could give laying around means you will be given two shares

00:03:14 --> 00:03:55

of reward. One share is for your belief in your profit that came. And the second chair is we're continuing that belief and are believing in behalf of cinema Hollywood. So first and second, first and last section are linked by belief in Allah and a belief in the price and alignment center, then the third, or the second, sorry, and the fourth section are also linked because they are to do with faith spending. About In fact, the word Arabic is to spend your money in the sake of a loss of the causes that please Allah. The second section is about this. And we've covered that now. As well as the second last section, the fourth section, then the section in the middle, the third is about an

00:03:55 --> 00:04:38

encounter between the believers and the hypocrites, which seems to be somewhat out of place from what section one two and four and five and speaking are they in fact, not they're related. Because it is if Allah is showing us that if you do have good faith in Allah, and spend your money for his sake, then you will be seen on the day of judgment as people that have a light emanating from the front and from the right side and they will be finding their way to paradise male lawmakers from those people. However, if you neglect this advice, you lack faith in Allah, and you are miserly, and don't spend your money for the sake of Allah then you may well be amongst the most of you.

00:04:39 --> 00:04:45

Who we will find out today, on your gamma, they will be given a light initially,

00:04:46 --> 00:05:00

but then that light will be snatched away and they'll be left to darkness and they will try to run after the believers following their light and they will be bound and prevented a lot potentials from such evil fate being so sexual

00:05:00 --> 00:05:42

Three, the middle one, which is where we are today is about the consequences of you know, having faith in spending or neglecting the advice of Allah subhanho surah so we reached verse number two, a last part that says this first of all, not me. No, not me, not the day in which you will see the believing men and women. Yes, our lubaina ad Bobby a man him that the lights will be streaming and beaming forward coming from in front of them and the right hand side, Bush aka polio, and they will be told congratulations today, Jenna to the dairyman,

00:05:43 --> 00:06:01

Holly Dean, a few congratulations about gardens, beneath which river slow that you will stay in forever. And their Liga who will foes and I'll leave that they are is the greatest success May Allah counters from those people. I mean,

00:06:02 --> 00:06:54

this is now a seed of your Nokia and the scholars of Islam. Like if the cathedral others they say this is in particular, just before a Surat Do you know what the setup is? It is the bridge that cross after you cross it, you will find the gates of Paradise and crossing that path or crossing that bridge is the last part of the accountability on North Korea. Yes. So even though we had him in his ear, he said that the Muslims and the hypocrites would all be gathered there before the bridge. And every one of them will have some light with the Yes, but then alone remove the light and darkness will cover every single person to the extent that they will not be able to see even the

00:06:54 --> 00:07:08

palms of their hands it will be that dark. And then allow will give life to people on a personal individual level. And that light will be as strong as the good deeds in this world.

00:07:09 --> 00:07:26

Episode said that some people will have a light that will shine so intensely, that it will be like a mounted worth of lights. Others will be given a light that will be shining as much as they can. But others he said will have a light that will shine just as much as the shadow.

00:07:27 --> 00:07:54

And others he said we'll have a light that will only flicker from in front of their feet. And when that light will they have to cross a Surat the bridge. And with that light will they have to find their way to the gates of paradise. Yes. But at that moment, the more of your code will find that they have not been given any light whatsoever. So they will find themselves in complete darkness. And this is the verse about that scene.

00:07:55 --> 00:08:04

Before we go into the verse, how is this verse connected to the one before the one before speaking about those who give a goodly load on the left hand on Hassan.

00:08:05 --> 00:08:32

Whoever gives a goodly loan to Allah, He will be given two things, a multiplication of rewards, as well as a noble reward which is perilous, this lesson are speaking about the overall piano, the connection in order to be extinct. It is as if Allah has taken you from this world and almost transported you into the hereafter to see what happens to those who do spend for the sake of Allah.

00:08:33 --> 00:09:04

In this life, they gave some of their money here. So we said upon passing is to give the pure Hello money that you have sincerely seeking a lost face and whoever you gave it to, you never remind them of that ever again. That person Allah says you will see that person do not gamble like this, that they will have a light shining out of them from the front of the right hand side that will make their way to paradise. This connection, what is called an Arctic Manasa. enamel the party. He was famous for this. In fact, I'll tell you a little bit about his life.

00:09:05 --> 00:09:07

So his name is Ibrahim.

00:09:09 --> 00:09:28

And he lived during the reign of the bubblews. He passed away in the year 893. Yes, he was an amazing scholar of Islam. He was a professor who could interpret the law. He was a faculty. He was a jurist. He was also a mathematician. Yes. And also he was a borovets does anyone know murghab it is.

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

It comes from the world of robots.

00:09:33 --> 00:09:34

We have the god goddess.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

Mr. Robbins is is

00:09:44 --> 00:09:59

a teacher no it's not the teacher is someone who stands in garrison on the frontlines waiting for the enemies to come. He will be the person who holds strong Yes, this is more hobbit so now because he was on this amount of knowledge he

00:10:00 --> 00:10:01

Another action is well.

00:10:02 --> 00:10:03


00:10:04 --> 00:10:34

he came from a very poor family. In fact, they said he was a there was a tragedy early on in his life where his parents and many of his uncles were all killed. And then he had to move to Damascus. And they are, he managed to find great teachers. And he became a sort of Islam. And then he moved to Cairo. in Cairo, he stopped, he taught that the seed of the entire pot. Do you know how long it took us to have one lesson every week? The whole plant, and he guesses

00:10:36 --> 00:10:45

10 years is close. 20 years. He taught that tap on 20 years. Yes. And that was his first time.

00:10:47 --> 00:11:04

Then he went to do once more. But when he did the second time, he decided to write his own book in the series. Well, this book is known as Do da, da, da, da da, is a very unique looking to see he focused on what is called Arabic, the Manasa bat, which means the

00:11:05 --> 00:11:51

connections and the cohesiveness between one verse and how it paves the way for the next verse. And that verse, is in anticipation of the verse that comes after. Yes, so he spoke about how this verse links to this verse, which then links with this world, and how that creates a message of the entire surah. He has a very fascinating read. And one of the unique things about his book is that he also relied on the Talat is low, yes, the genius scripture to try and explain some of the parts of the Quran which is quite strange, isn't it? to rely on the Taurat? Yes. But the thing is, many parts of the Koran are speaking about the Israelites, isn't it? Various law you mentioned many times, and

00:11:51 --> 00:12:34

many other scholars, they do rely on Islam UDR the ratios that come from the Christians and the Jews to give extra context to verses of the Quran. And so I know you're fine. He followed Yeah, the way of the others of the previous quarters, but he kind of immersed himself in that. Yeah. So now before he said, the way this verse about your monkey links to the previous verses about spending is to show you the reward of those who spent that you will see now who is being spoken to him your baton won't be as good as they say the proper set of armor seven is being spoken to by a lot but by setting the precedent, you will see a great scene of the Day of Judgment, a scene that will please you, you will

00:12:34 --> 00:12:39

see both the believing men and women what really woke me up

00:12:40 --> 00:13:22

some of the scholars they say the reason why Allah never just said what we need, which includes both men and women are separated that out is because the struggles of men are different to the struggles of women. And Allah is saying that on the Day of Judgment Allah knows your own unique struggles he went through and he will acknowledge and reward you based on that he also Paula are sisters the things they go through many brothers will never face in their life for example just as a job when they are when they walk down the street. Do you know what kind of looks like it? Yes you know kind of abuse that they have to suffer even here in red bridge in East London

00:13:25 --> 00:13:35

there's some places my wife for example is in a pub. There are some places she does does just does not want to go Yes, she refuses to go there. Why? Because

00:13:37 --> 00:13:43

not only once you get you know those strange looks but people will say things nasty things mean things are not a once

00:13:44 --> 00:13:47

upon a lie in Has anyone here been to

00:13:48 --> 00:14:26

Lakeside shopping center? Yes. You see a lot of Muslims. There isn't too many Muslims there. So we're having we're having a meal. Okay, in one of the restaurants they have a parade they know the lake or something because we're having quiet mingle their lunch? Is this white lady? This couple? Okay, they're walking past. We're just eating. And the lady said under breath. Can she even see what she's eating? Like that? Just can't even see what she just said it in a very kind of condescending. And to my surprise my wife. She spoke up she said, Why do you want some?

00:14:28 --> 00:14:37

And her face is dropped like oh my god. I just got told by this lady who I thought was an uncivilized backward woman but she can actually speak English and is quite articulate as well.

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

Yes. So then you have to appreciate that, you know, for our sisters, you know, the struggles they go through very different two brothers is a man okay. I believe in man at the time of the process of waging Jihad alongside the process of violence and other

00:14:58 --> 00:14:59

you know, the

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

fear and terror that must go through the mind of a soldier, when he comes face to face with the enemy on the battlefield, is almost incomprehensible, isn't it to be on the battlefield, you know, and to know that maybe you just have moments away from being maybe shot or killed or stabbed or whatever else. And that type of trial and tribulation is exclusive for the men, not for the women. So each to their own. This verse, some of the scholars said, is speaking to both, because each, you know, the men and the women believers, they have their own struggles. I'm not saying that you will see both of them. Because you recognize both of their struggles. And you will see them like this.

00:15:43 --> 00:16:01

Yes, our new beta ad will be a value that their lines will be yes, I wish means beaming and streaming out. Okay, not just slowly, but beaming out, and they will be moving along with that light. Where are they walking to?

00:16:03 --> 00:16:16

Where is this light, guiding them to? guiding them to the gates of paradise? So they're on a mission now to get into perilous? And this light? Is what is keeping them on track?

00:16:17 --> 00:16:24

Okay, and this light, Allah says comes from two places from in front of them and from their right hand side.

00:16:25 --> 00:16:29

So some of the scholars they discussed, why is it a muscle? I didn't mention the left hand side.

00:16:31 --> 00:16:37

Why say that is going to come from in front of them? And from the right answer, but the left hand side was not mentioned.

00:16:38 --> 00:16:50

Now someone's gonna say it is implied. Yes, it is implied? Well, someone's gonna say no, there is a specific reason why the right was mentioned at the left was left. Anyone hazard a guess?

00:16:51 --> 00:16:51


00:16:53 --> 00:17:27

Very good. Found them. And udia key data will be an ED facilitator who has a survey, you'll see all philosophies and ask for the people that will be given the book on their right hand side, then soon they will find a very easy accounting male lawmakers from those people. So the believers will be walking and running towards paradise, and they have their good deeds, their book of good deeds, and they write down this book. And that book of good deeds is emanating its own light as well. Yes, that is why the right hand side was mentioned.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:47

Bush, aka Julio, congratulations today who says this, some of the scholars they say this is the angels they are speaking the angels, they are flanking your path to paradise. And as they see you going past marching on in haste, they say congratulations today. Imagine that seats.

00:17:48 --> 00:18:33

Angels are like your fans, you know, they are supporting you. They were rooting for you. You are making a lot of progress at the moment. So he told us that when you make God, for some one, there is an angel beside you that says Oh ALLAH and for him and for him and for him. We find that in Oklahoma says that at the time of death, that Allah Akbar, Allah, that the angels come down to meet the beliefs. Yes. And then to give you blackmail, don't worry, it's going to be okay. It's going to be okay. So the angels are like the Friends of the friends of Allah in this life. And on the Day of Judgment, you will see them congratulating you the word bush Ah, literally means to be told

00:18:33 --> 00:19:18

something that makes you makes you feel happy inside. Yes, then the way they are speaking to you. They are congratulating you and they congratulations makes you even more happy. What are they congratulating you about the agenda to add with that? You have to really appreciate this very common description of what I'm giving very common description of gender given in the Koran, number one Gen X, which is the plural of the word gender, gender means God, literally gender actually means something that is enshrouded covered, that is why the jinn the word Jin comes from the same root as gender, because there are things that we cannot see. Likewise, genda they said is enshrouded by

00:19:18 --> 00:19:37

great trees. Yes. And because of that, a person cannot see what is inside a paradise. Jannat is a plural. So they are saying there are gardens today, as if to say there are so many of you. Don't worry, we have space for everyone here. Yes, there are plenty of gardens that does it even

00:19:38 --> 00:19:58

beneath which rivers flow you have to really, really imagine this with your mind's eye. Yes, that when we think of a beautiful holiday resort, what comes into your mind Tony, honestly, when you think about a time to relax and enjoy yourself and why and go on holiday, what comes into your mind to

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


00:20:01 --> 00:20:03

beach for swimming pool.

00:20:04 --> 00:20:07

Now what about the

00:20:09 --> 00:20:11

the white golden sand?

00:20:12 --> 00:20:16

Why go to sand one of those beaches? You know? Yes.

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

What's up?

00:20:22 --> 00:20:24

A beautiful house a beautiful mansion.

00:20:25 --> 00:20:40

To see for most of us one of the common themes in our holiday destination is a beautiful beach, isn't it? or some kind of water feature? If you were told in the hotel, you have two routes to choose from CTV ocean view, which one do you choose?

00:20:41 --> 00:20:42

ocean, isn't it we focus on?

00:20:43 --> 00:20:46

What? What is the ocean possible?

00:20:47 --> 00:21:13

Because you'd like to look at the oceans, looking at the water, and a water feature, whether that's a waterfall, whether that's the beach, it brings some kind of peace into your mind to your heart, isn't it? Allah has made paradise, the way that we would love to enjoy paradise. Didn't even that literally means beneath which we were slow to what they say that means is that right outside your mansion,

00:21:14 --> 00:21:44

our rivers are flowing, that are beautiful to listen to. And the rivers themselves are of different varieties rivers of honey rivers of wine, rivers of water, rivers of milk that never stagnates. And you can go there you can take a dip, you can enjoy the drink you can satisfy so you can just relax and listen to the sound of that ocean. Listen to the sound of that rumor. Yes, a lie of destroying paradise, like your holiday resort, except that it is much better. And then in the end, the law said holiday No.

00:21:46 --> 00:21:49

It is not like a holiday because you don't have to come back home to work.

00:21:50 --> 00:22:02

You don't have to come back home to take care of anything else. You can stay there and you will stay there forever and ever. And the thing about enjoyment of Paradise, which is unlike enjoyment in this life is that sometimes you get fed up isn't it?

00:22:03 --> 00:22:13

Sometimes, you know people play games, they love the games, but after a while you get a bit fed up holidays, the best place in the world. Yeah, but after our seven days you start thinking about

00:22:15 --> 00:22:24

the best foods, you know, you have the best food you can possibly imagine. And then someone says Would you like to have it tomorrow, maybe not again tomorrow.

00:22:25 --> 00:22:31

in Paradise, the each moment is more enjoyable than the previous one.

00:22:32 --> 00:22:50

Each moment is more enjoyable than the previous one. And so, you will never, ever become tired of paradise. In fact, you will only grow to love it and enjoy it and then suppiler z which is not in this verse, element z which is extra on your Jumeirah

00:22:51 --> 00:23:16

on your module, the prompts that allow me to sort of set the belief is they will dress in the finest clothes and they will wear the best perfumes and they will come out for the Juma salon and they will take the seat on members that are made some out of goals and out to pills and out of misc and then the hookah will begin and they will be addressed by none other than a lost child.

00:23:17 --> 00:23:29

And they will look up and the eyes will be fixated on a bar and the eyes will not go here or they accepted to allow replaces the veil between him and the soprano law. Yes.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:42

So they will look forward to the Friday. And the seeing of Allah is the most enjoyable thing about parents loving this. Male lawmakers are those who see his face every Friday. And

00:23:45 --> 00:23:50

then the verse ends Delica who will hos loudly The law says that there

00:23:51 --> 00:24:17

is the greatest success. Now pay attention to the double emphasis here alone never said danika foes allow the law said there Liga, who will fold in our league as if to say that there that is the greatest success. Why is it said like that? Because many people though they may say, You know my hope is to go to power notice. My hope isn't be successful go to Paradise.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:23

They don't really believe that that is the greatest form of success in this life.

00:24:25 --> 00:24:49

in their mind, there are many things that show success. Yes. For example, a career for example, a house for example, a nice car, or traveling the world and Paradise is amongst those successful things. Yes, a lie saying no. That is the real true success and nothing else comes close it so get your priorities right in your life. Somebody may say

00:24:51 --> 00:24:52

how do you know

00:24:54 --> 00:24:58

that Paradise is your greatest ambition in life? How do you know that

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

See, no one here would say otherwise. You'd say, Brother, what? What's the best thing you could possibly hope for? You say go to Paris?

00:25:09 --> 00:25:15

It's true. I hope the same. But how do you know? Deep down beside that that is actually your greatest aspiration in life?

00:25:17 --> 00:25:19

Is anywhere we can tell? We'll find out.

00:25:23 --> 00:25:39

Let me give you the example of the Olympic athletes. Yes. Does anyone know how much an Olympic athlete has to train just in order to enter the team for the games, how many years he has to train, how many years he has to train.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:46

They said on average between four to eight years, just to make the team

00:25:47 --> 00:25:54

once you're in Team GB, for example. Then comes the training to the games.

00:25:55 --> 00:26:03

And they said on average, an Olympic athlete will have to train 10,000 hours in order to prepare for the games.

00:26:04 --> 00:26:07

Now on a weekly basis, how much do you think they train?

00:26:09 --> 00:26:12

How many hours training Do you think they have in a week?

00:26:16 --> 00:26:30

They said on average training, physical, physical training can be in excess of 25 pounds. Yes. 25 hours. Depends on the athlete. They said about 100 fell. Yeah. Although far as they say

00:26:32 --> 00:26:37

that. In his peak, he used to run 135 miles every week.

00:26:38 --> 00:27:02

135 miles every single week. With no day break. Yes. And most athletes they say would train seven days a week, seven days a week imagine having to go to gym gym seven days a week. I love you someone they do that for years in the hope of getting the gold

00:27:03 --> 00:27:14

just there's a child from I get that goat. See now if if you said to me as he was your ambition in life, no setting is very obvious what my ambition is. Have you not seen my lifestyle?

00:27:15 --> 00:27:25

My ambition is to get the gold and my life is an evidence that I'm true to my ambition. Do you get what I'm showing while taking this stuff?

00:27:26 --> 00:27:38

If you claim that Paradise is the greatest success in your mind, and your greatest ambition, then your life should be an evidence that it is the case

00:27:40 --> 00:27:41

it needs to be some dedication

00:27:43 --> 00:27:49

on our phones that we are working towards, as if it is the greatest This is the message isn't it?

00:27:51 --> 00:27:59

Now the means show a lot that it is the greatest is in your mind. The promise of a longer instead of used to make us laugh. We should also make this

00:28:01 --> 00:28:04

a llama la techjockey dunya

00:28:05 --> 00:28:09

la Tajani dunya acaba, Amina.

00:28:10 --> 00:28:14

What does that mean? Oh Allah don't make this world My greatest ambition.

00:28:16 --> 00:28:29

Y la la la la la mina. And don't make it the extent of my knowledge. What does that mean? Don't make it the extent to what it means. Don't make my aspirations only to do with this world.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:42

Make them go beyond this world and into the hereafter. This was a draw of the prophets. Allah said he said to Allah, Please don't make me of those. You know that their greatest concern in this in their life? Is this dunya

00:28:43 --> 00:28:47

by the way of implication, what is he saying, make my greatest, my greatest concern,

00:28:49 --> 00:29:14

make my greatest concern the hereafter. Now the beauty of always thinking about the hereafter thinking about parallel thinking about the health by thinking about your life to come is that your heart enjoys a sense of peace and tranquility. And the opposite is true as well. And if you're always thinking about this line, always thinking about maybe how much money you earn, to how much money you have, or how many

00:29:16 --> 00:29:34

how well your career is going. Then you will find that you experience a lot of anxiety and stress in your life. Isn't that true? Yes. Which is amazing, isn't it? being obsessed with the Ashura makes you find peace in your life? Now lawmakers are those who are obsessed with

00:29:35 --> 00:29:37

making our greatest ambitions.

00:29:38 --> 00:29:59

Okay, so the next verse, the contrast outcomes between the believers and the monaci Cohn, one afrikan Allah say your mail portal one outfit born and the day the Mona Phil pool, both men and women will say the following. Look how the girls contrasts. Yes, even as you said the word yoga

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

is in the place of the word yo mo of the previous verse where I said yo metalforming Allah dances yo maya pool Mona Phil *. Yes, as if to say that both these things are happening at the same time.

00:30:15 --> 00:31:02

As for the believers, they are making their way to paradise. Meanwhile, in the camp of the hypocrites, is a different story being told, yes. And Allah says both the male and the female hypocrites will be saying the following. Again, a lot distinguish between men and women. Why? Because the hypocrisy of women is different to the hypocrisy of men. You know that they were two prophets whose wives ended up becoming hypocrites, Prophet nor and Prophet, dude, alliums their wives, imagine the woman or the person who is the closest to you in this world, ended up becoming treacherous and unfaithful. They sell about no way that when he would go about, you know, the day

00:31:02 --> 00:31:09

and night calling people to Islam and telling them to worship Allah, his wife used to go around telling people my husband is not and don't listen to

00:31:10 --> 00:31:15

imagine your own life behind your back telling people, my husband's crazy, don't listen to what he has to say.

00:31:16 --> 00:31:38

No polyester. And he came to the people who are the solder mines. Yes. When the three angels came to visit him in his house, in the form of human beings who were handsome men, you know, his wife did. She went outside the house, and you tend to the men, the sort of like your guests who turned up in our house, three handsome men.

00:31:39 --> 00:31:48

And they came and laid siege to the house. And so can you imagine how disturbing the house to be for Lutheranism? And to know that it was his own wife?

00:31:50 --> 00:31:58

That told the mom to come? Yes. Unbelievable. So the hypocrisy of women may be different to that woman.

00:31:59 --> 00:32:04

You know, so Pamela, I remember I did a football illustrated

00:32:05 --> 00:32:06

about hypocrisy.

00:32:08 --> 00:32:16

And a brother came up to me after the hook bar, and he said, You know what, I'm so glad he spoke about this subject. Because a few years ago, I resigned from my job.

00:32:17 --> 00:32:20

I used to work for the Secret Service. He said, Okay, interesting.

00:32:21 --> 00:32:44

And then he goes, I went to America to find a different job unrelated to that. And I was enjoying my time there, my family were there and then I got an offer another job offer back in the UK and I thought to myself, you know what, maybe it's time to come back to the UK. So I came here, this is my first week here and after listen to your football, I cannot accept that job invitation.

00:32:48 --> 00:33:18

Yes, look at that. So the hypocrisy, yes, comes in different shapes and forms like this verse is saying whatever that form of hypocrisy was, you will be exposed and we will find that you will say the following yopu Manasa 1111 Africa to live Nadine will call out to the believers. rushing to Paradise is what will they say to them? On Guna Nakata, Miss Midori, they will say wait for us, we just want to share some human

00:33:19 --> 00:34:03

Yes. Now, who is in a desperate moment? The one after going? Yes, Allah says they will say on the lunar surface you know, they said what it means in the lunar wait for us. But this God as they say the difference between these two words on the Rona and into the Runa they say the word own though it means to wait for just a moment in thought the Laura means to wait for a while that if you put that all together and imagine the scene that the video was a marching off with their light and they can see the gates of Paradise and they almost there and behind them the one thing would you mind waiting? Now tell me if you look back and saw what happened. What do you wake up?

00:34:04 --> 00:34:07

You went away? What would you say?

00:34:09 --> 00:34:11

I'm going to paradise I don't know where you're going.

00:34:12 --> 00:34:45

But they say all the rubbish we just wait for a second Just a second. We are not going to stop you for going to paradise. We just want you to wait just a moment. Not obviously Noriko the word. The boss is also very interesting means to share something to share file. We don't say I'm going to take some of your light. They say we're going to share some you don't like two people in a cave. They both have one has a lip torch. The other one just has the torch. He says let me just tap your torch. Just want to share some of your fire. Yes. When they say that key love jerawat

00:34:46 --> 00:35:00

someone says go back and find your own light. Now Who's speaking? The angels are speaking once again. Where they spoke beautiful words the believers they will

00:35:00 --> 00:35:45

Now school the man after he will say, Go back, go back and find your own light. Can they go back to the dunya? Can they go back to the world and find their own light? They can't. The time has come when no one can go back now, why are they being told that then they'd be told in order to give them a sense of torture. You really want to go to Paradise. Go back to the loony and find your lights. And also there's a beautiful lesson in that as well, that the believers they are going to paradise today, not because of some kind of just discriminations. Allah, Allah didn't give it to you and again with the law, they earned their life through faith and through sacrifice. What do you do in

00:35:45 --> 00:36:32

your life? Neither you have faith, nor did you sacrifice anything? Yes. So there's a lesson there that they will be given their light because they have earned it as you do anything. And also in the scene of darkness, imagine the voices are coming out of the darkness as well. How scary was that be to hear angels scorn you using go back, don't go anywhere. Don't think you can go behind them. You can't go beyond them not going back to where you came from. felt to me sooner, but then it goes from bad to worse. Allah says for Dori barbarina home be sued la Hobart's law says that then a giant wall is erected between them. And the beliefs and the world for more used here is soon. Not the Dow did

00:36:32 --> 00:37:11

not mean is a normal rule assume is an unscalable war. You know, like the Great Wall of China, the type of wall that protects the city from the enemies, that type of all are safe. It comes out of the ground high up into the sky, stopping them in their tracks. But then the law says the hooba that there is a gate one gate Jamar, well you made one gate in the wall. Some of the scholars said because they are believers they are straggling behind, because they didn't give much light, the light that just flickers. So they're coming slowly. So the gate will open and let them go through and then shut and all traffic won't count, enter. But there's another lesson as well. One other

00:37:11 --> 00:37:16

reason. You see when the one after poem, they see the gate, what will they do?

00:37:17 --> 00:37:48

They will run to the gate isn't now they will look to the boss, oh my god, the believers are making their way to parents. And that scene of seeing the believers will create a lot of pain in their heart. And the fact that there was a gate will give them a sense of false hope. Maybe that day opens, maybe there is a way through. But when they come to the gate, we will find that it is locked and shut and guarded by ages. They cannot make their way through. So by giving the gate a lot raise their hopes and then nationalism.

00:37:49 --> 00:38:10

And national he said this is very fitting type of punishment. Because if you think about the way it used to live in this life, he used to create false hope with the eyes and the minds of the believers by telling them that will be really when you find the disbelievers like the battle oceans 1000 Muslims went to war.

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

But when they were just about to start the fight 300 of them got up and left all 300 of them all 300 of them were the one fifth one. So they gave a false false sense of hope to simulate a fight with you and then at the last moment they walked away and abandoned them. Now Allah is punishing them in the same way. Yes, like a law citizen for a long yes stands it will be so amazing. I must say. Well, you know, um, you know, when he sets the bar you believe like the the real believers do.

00:38:45 --> 00:38:48

They say Shall we believe like the foolish people?

00:38:49 --> 00:39:03

Do you think we're fools we're gonna believe like them. Then Allah says when they meet the believers face to face. What did they say call Ravana? Probably was pumpkin whistle mana. Yeah, really? We're real believers. Don't doubt us.

00:39:04 --> 00:39:15

And then Allah says why the Hello in a shout out to anybody all along with the devils. What do they say? in America? We're really with you guys. In

00:39:17 --> 00:39:24

you just messing about. It was having fun and games, the next verse of losses along your status, you will be a law.

00:39:25 --> 00:39:27

A law will mess around with them on your own.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:48

Yes, a law. You think you're tricking people. You think you are insulting people ally is going to deal with you in the same way and this is a piece of that. Yes. protect us from this panel. So all I say is that this wall is erected and is engaged in between la MOBA bout you know

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

where volume is coming in other than inside of the wall. There is Rama meaning Paradise is inside that wall somewhere on the other side of the wall.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:47

Whether believers are going you will find paradise and Allah referred to Jenna as ohana. Because it is the manifestation of Amaz mercy. Allah created us to show us mercy and the greatest form of His mercy his agenda, lawmakers for the people of Publix and then are things that on the outside outside of it will allow you Who will be the healer other than on the other side of the wall behind them is other punishment. So imagined upon that they they were running after the believers, please let me share some EULA is great wall just comes up in between them. And then they look through the gate and they see the believers marching on and they realize it scientists paradise and then they turn around

00:40:47 --> 00:41:33

and they realize that behind them is what john now Johanna. The Quran explains that Johanna will come on you're not gonna like a wild beast, a wild beast, and Johanna will speak you know what Jana will say? Hello? Tell us. Yes. Oh, you Jana will be spoken to by Allah. And Allah will say, Are you full now after the disbelievers? have you thrown into it? And Jordana will say, help me muzzin Is there any more? Is there any more and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, All Yama, Yama, Johanna will be brought tied down by 70,000 chains, and at the end of each chain, or 70,000 angels trying to rein it in.

00:41:34 --> 00:41:55

Because when it comes, and it sees the disbelievers, it will see it's good. And it will want to do about panelo. So when Allah says that behind them is Johanna, they you can you can imagine that they turn around, they sense that in the darkness out there somewhere. These gentlemen

00:41:56 --> 00:42:06

are protected, because this is the punishment of hypocrisy. I'm not going to go any further because I just want to speak of a proxy for a moment. The story continues. And shall we'll cover that tomorrow.

00:42:07 --> 00:42:10

But I want to ask us a question. What is it? What

00:42:11 --> 00:42:24

is it that the system is not just about was not just a laziness? No. And well, now, by way of definition is someone who says he's a Muslim, but inside he doesn't believe in at all. This is

00:42:25 --> 00:42:31

the first characteristic of hypocrisy is that when a man speaks, he lies.

00:42:32 --> 00:42:45

Yes. So you know, some people, they are habitual lies. They can't help themselves. every other word that comes out of their mouth is a lie. Yes, you may have come across people like that. That is a sign of hypocrisy. Yes.

00:42:47 --> 00:43:25

Second sign is that when he is given a trust, that he breaks it? Yes. Somebody trusts you with something. And what do you do? You got to break that trust that dishonor? Obviously, the third one, they're very interesting is that the horse on a fragile person said when he gets into an argument, fentanyl, fentanyl literally means that he explodes. Yes. So look, everyone, everyone gets a bit rattled. Sometimes everyone can have a rant. Sometimes person is not saying that person is saying that when he gets into an argument, when she gets it an argument, she loses it, you know, seeing someone who has to lose it,

00:43:26 --> 00:43:32

like this stop effing and blinding and there's this no stopping, there's no control, you've got rage in the eyes.

00:43:33 --> 00:43:49

That is one interpretation of what the person was saying is that if you're a person, you get into an argument, and you lose it. That is a sign of hypocrisy. The second interpretation is that in order to win an argument, you will lie.

00:43:51 --> 00:44:01

People do that sometimes, isn't it? Think about Facebook walls and instrumentalism? Those kinds of things, people just to get the last word argument, they make something up

00:44:04 --> 00:44:21

that the person was saying is a sign of democracy. Now imagine knowing, even though the person ended up saying by saying whoever has all of them is a full model. He said it doesn't mean Mona in the archaeological sense.

00:44:22 --> 00:44:59

It means when I think in terms of you have all the characteristics of the world, what is the difference? The difference is as follows. They say, there are two types of nifa. One is guarantee quality and one is admin. One is hypocrisy of belief. And the second is hypocrisy in action. Does that make sense? So if you you may be behaving like a hypocrite, but you're still a Muslim. You just just need to realize that basically, no, seriously, so your life the way you're behaving right now. So the second type is, I am a Muslim. Inside you don't believe in Islam.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:29

whatsoever. And we find that in our times, they are people like this, that they claim to be Muslim. But just because the benefits of being Muslim is because you say you're a Muslim. We'll give you your own radio station show. So you can last Muslims. No one can say anything. Because you know, you're the guy who says, Would you be honest, some of what we asked him, you know, the racist guy, they say, how can you be racist? He said, How? I'm not racist. I'll go black friends. Come on. Seriously, is that a legitimate justification?

00:45:32 --> 00:45:49

People do this, isn't it? So there are many perks of becoming a Muslim. Or say you're a Muslim? Yes, you can have a career in the Islamophobia industry by claiming that you are a Muslim, but in fact, you hate Islam, and you would like to destroy Muslims.

00:45:50 --> 00:46:15

And then when it comes to those moments of TV, you know, they were they want to get expert advice for Muslim martial arts, one of the greatest goal of Islam disappears. Have you been everyone has scripted to do in the first place? No one even thinks you're a Muslim. Yeah, because you've got a Muslim name. Now you're going to be the Muslim voice. And when you have to say is in fact of detriment to the Muslims, it's not helping them, in fact, is making their lives even worse.

00:46:16 --> 00:46:28

But this man, he gets paid a lot for doing that. In fact, he said good things about what's going to lose his job. Yes, so hypocrisy is alive and well, today, just as it was in no time.

00:46:31 --> 00:46:35

So let's revise that again. A one hour ship is not a lazy Muslim.

00:46:36 --> 00:46:57

However, a Muslim can have signs of books, you can have characteristics of hypocrisy, a mana ship that is being spoken about in this verse, is the person who claims to be a Muslim, but he is not a Muslim. He doesn't believe in Islam. And his fate is as being described in this verse. The second last thing I want to mention is

00:46:58 --> 00:47:08

the connection of hypocrisy and spending. Because in section number two, Allah spoke about spending and in section three also cover hypocrisy. What is the connection?

00:47:09 --> 00:47:14

You know, there is a sewer under put on called pseudo code ethical? Did you know that?

00:47:15 --> 00:47:22

Yeah, the chapter about hypocrites. And in the last part of that surah, the last set,

00:47:23 --> 00:47:37

and if you could spend your money that Allah has given you, and then Allah says right to the end of the verses, that if death comes to someone, they will say, Allah send me back so I can do what?

00:47:38 --> 00:47:52

So I can spend some money in your course. So somebody's thinking, the sooner to do with one option is ending by speaking about, in fact, spending your money, what is the connection, the scholars explained, the connection is like this.

00:47:54 --> 00:48:00

The more miserly and stingy you are, the more likely you are to become a hypocrite.

00:48:01 --> 00:48:49

That makes sense, if you think about it, because a hypocrite, he is prepared to sell his own mother for his own interests. True, not everyone is prepared to sell anything. He's been his mom, anything at all, so he can just get one step further in his career? Yes. So it makes sense, therefore, that if you are someone who is generous, someone who gives your money away for the sake of Allah, then you would be far away from hypocrisy as well. So this is a lesson for us. That if you feel that you have capitalism, hypocrisy, that one way to remedy them, is to be generous and to spend your money. You know, there was one brother, he said, I have a friend. Every year he goes for our Ma, Mashallah.

00:48:50 --> 00:49:00

And his children only Islamic school, private services. And he earns the brother saying he earned the same amount of money has been I know, because we have a safe job.

00:49:01 --> 00:49:12

Yeah, so I said to myself, you know, why is he doing to get the money that he has, because the amount we get paid is the same and I can't do what he's doing. Yeah, so he said to him one day, what's your secret?

00:49:13 --> 00:49:16

What do you seen her in the tree growing in the back?

00:49:18 --> 00:49:29

So he said, the only thing I can think of is that I give a lot of money in charity. He says how much money he said I give to the point that he starts to hurt me.

00:49:31 --> 00:49:40

I'll give him to the point. It's nice to have you. There. My friend said this is your secret is almost on the biggest gentle, subtle, subtle, Boss habit.
