Episode Notes

Abu Darda reported Allah’s Messenger as saying: “If anyone learns by heart the first ten verses of the Surah Al Kahf, he will be protected from the Dajjal”. (Sahih Muslim 1766) ‘The Sleepers of the Cave’ is a four part lecture that covers the stories narrated in Surah Al Kahf. First there is the story of the sleepers of the cave who slept therein for a long period, this is more than a story it is a Sign from Allah. Then there is the story of the mysterious teacher who shows Musa (AS) how life itself is parable and the importance in seeking knowledge. We are then told of those who get sucked in to the glitter of this life, the story of the Two Gardens. And further there is the story of Dhul-Qarnain, the powerful ruler of west and east, who made an iron wall to protect the weak against the strong. These stories refer to the trials and tribulations humanity will face, uncertainty, and vanity of this life. There are many lessons to learn from this surah, which can only be understood through patience, humbleness and the fullness of knowledge.

00:00:25--> 00:00:55

tonight inshallah we continue on our study of this of the stories that are narrated, and the blessing surah of Seurat and calf. And as we said, in the last session, in Solaris, GitHub, there are as many authentic Hadees that actually illustrate and show the special value special blessing status of the surah. And the first story that we

00:00:58--> 00:01:18

started with was the sort of moose Anahata, just because we were studying the stories around the life of Prophet Musa alayhis salaam. And then we spoke about the people of the cave, where the surah is named after them after the story of the Cave of alkaff.

00:01:19--> 00:01:34

And we learned the importance of standing and having solid and solid athletes before the fitna. And in doing religion when people are tested in their faith how these young

00:01:36--> 00:01:49

believers gathered together and stuck together and they escaped with their faith and a las panatela rewarded them by making them an example and a parable and an area of proof and assigned to mankind.

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

And Allah subhanho wa Taala after that

00:01:54--> 00:02:05

continues immediately after that story of a cave of the cave was big enough second Allah Deena the owner of the home below that he will actually read una vida.

00:02:07--> 00:02:14

ina can hayati dounia, want to terminate Paula and D Kareena whatever, how can

00:02:16--> 00:02:23

Allah says, and keep yourself alive to send them patiently with those who call on their morgue.

00:02:24--> 00:02:42

And those the companions who remember Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and praising him, morning and night, morning and afternoon seeking his face seeking the pleasure of Allah only, and let not your eyes overlook them, desiring the pump and the glitter of the life of the world,

00:02:43--> 00:03:34

and obey not him, whose heart We have made heedless of our remembrance, and who follows his own lust, his own Caprice, and whose affair these are her whose deeds has been lost. And in that Allah subhanho wa Taala is, and the beautiful and the miraculous nature of the Koran connecting one story to the other, the first story of those young believers who had the companionship of righteousness among themselves, the fellowship of righteousness, if you will, and the importance of savasana the importance of how you should be around those who are righteous who are true believers. So Allah says to this prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and keep yourself with patiently with those who

00:03:34--> 00:03:42

call upon their Lord sincerely, they want only the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then said, well at

00:03:43--> 00:04:12

home to reduce the natural hair to dunya and do not take your eyes off of them, do not take your attention off of them for seeking zenithal heritage dunya the pumpkin the glitter of this life. And the story that is narrated in this particular revelation is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his eagerness and sincerity to spread Islam as soon as possible, he would look to the leaders of courage. And

00:04:13--> 00:04:59

if the leaders of any particular community followed the truth of the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then most likely, the other people would continue to follow. So the Prophet was with the elite of kurush, and preaching the day our preaching the call of a lot of them, and a lot of yield to him that you should stick patiently, continue patiently with those who seek the favor of Allah, who seek the face of Allah and the pleasure of Allah, regardless of their status, and those who have the glitter of this dunya if you know the call is before them, but do not deviate your attention to them. So the second

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

Dory that follows that the way it is bridged, is we speaking about staying with the righteousness like the people of the caves stuck together, and then avoiding the glitter of dunya, which is the core of the next story. The next story is about the glitter of dystonia, and how to people two close friends and in some deficit in some interpretation, there were actually biological brothers, how one of them was taken by this glitter by zenithal hair to dunya. What letter do I enact at home to reduce the natural hair to dunya Allah has given an example of what happens for those who get sucked in into the glitter of this life. So this is the story of the man who has the to garden and his in

00:05:49--> 00:06:27

the believer his believing brother or believing friend, Allah Subhana Allah said, What are a Blom method? pro julaine Gaiden early mid hemogenic tanium in the FF now who may be naphthalene? What's your Allah enamels Allah, Allah says and put forward to them. The example of two men onto one of them. We had given two gardens of grapes, not only one garden, but two gardens of grapes. And we had surrounded both both gardens with date columns

00:06:28--> 00:06:33

and had put between them green crops, or jalna. Dana humans are

00:06:35--> 00:07:21

killed Belgian tiny akula What am totally mean who she was a German healer Allahumma na hora. Allah says, each of those two gardens brought forth its produce its fruit, and fail Not in the least they're in and we caused a river to gush forth in the midst of them. So lots of Hannah talons describe it describing to us here a state of enormous wealth that was bestowed on a man and it was to gardens luscious, when fruitful with grapes and grapes, as a fruit that has been desirable since ancient time, for multiple reasons. And it is a very delicate

00:07:22--> 00:08:14

fruit to to grow. It needs certain atmosphere needs certain environment, certain ecosystem, and it's very fragile. And Allah says how it was Allah provided everything for that crop to become very fruitful and very successful, and to produce its maximum wealth. Allah says that this fragile gardens were surrounded by strong palm trees. So the palm trees, we know how strong they are in front of the wind and a lot of the nature stuff that can take those gardens and make the fruits less productive. And the palm trees as they protect those two gardens of grapes themselves, they are fruitful, they also produce more wealth. And then our law says how he puts even more, produce more

00:08:14--> 00:09:09

fruitful plants into those gardens. And to keep those gardens watered. Allah says well Fed Chairman at Hillel at home and O'Hara and we have caused a river to gush forth in the midst of them. So one of these two brothers or two friends had enormous wealth. And Allah is describing to us in details how he said Hannah with that made itself and guarded that wealth and caused it to be perfect. So when the time for harvest come, Allah says, Can you tell Jonathan both to gardens at that color, it gives its full its maximum produce, while I'm shuffling minutiae and nothing was failed in the least. And and some of the farmers say that a lot of the grape growers, the people that have the

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

vines, that one season may be good and the other season would follow that may not be as good but Allah saying that this garden was every year was given its maximum its best.

00:09:21--> 00:09:26

And then as it follows Allah says what can allow sama

00:09:27--> 00:10:00

and he had fruits and in one hour can Allahu su more. And the difference between the two is not only different in the pronunciation, but different than the meaning. Fillmore a sumo is money that is fruitful. So the money that begets money, the money that is well invested the money that actually productive, have more money, while Canada has more so Allah for even more, he this man was very wealthy. He has

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

A lot of wealth.

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

And this was the bounty of Allah in favor of Allah upon him.

00:10:08--> 00:10:58

So what was the reaction of this man, this person to his his wealth and his money, Allah says, For colonists are heavy. So he said to his companion to his friend, while while you have zero in a course of a mutual discussion, mutual talk, so, this just adding these two words, while you have little, it tells you the nature of this one is this person that likes to talk about himself, like to talk about his wealth, and more will become but Allah in the Quran in this miraculous book, setting the stage in our mind, to know the nature because it would have been in Arabic language, fine to say for colonists or heavy Anna, for calling so heavy and extra minca. But Allah is telling us the

00:10:58--> 00:11:09

condition, how are you? How are we Oh, when he was just having this discussion with him is showing off his boasting. Right, and XL mink, and as you know,

00:11:11--> 00:12:06

I am more than you in wealth and stronger in respect of men. I have more wealth, and more time. I have more power, and I have more wealth than you are this Enter. And my me, Anna accelero minca. And what did the shaitan say to Allah subhanho wa Taala about himself, and a higher on Minho about Adam, he said, I am better than him. This enter is a fatal enter. This me i is a very dangerous trap, that the shaitan fell right into and revealed his his evil self. And human beings when they stick with this enter, they follow in the footsteps of shaitan and Allah says well let's watch Schaefer in the shaitana Kerala coma.

00:12:08--> 00:12:30

Say one indeed was your enemy. So make an enemy out of him. Do not follow in the footsteps of shaitan and the first thing that drags the human beings into the footsteps of this enter, liking me. Let me tell you more about me. See my wealth? Look at what I have. It's me. And we have studied our own.

00:12:31--> 00:12:59

Our own is another example of those who are allowed bestowed enormous wealth upon what does he say about that? Well, in number 82, who la min nd I was given that because of my knowledge, again me that this enter, that is the thing that will take men to mankind to the to the lowest of the lows. So this man has said anak salamin camella was when

00:13:00--> 00:13:23

he felt the arrogance, the pride and the extra income as well as uniform. And then he boasted a law says what the hell agenda and then he went and walked into his court. Wah wah volley Molina say, wha hoo avoid him. The halogen netta Hua Hua Hua Lim, when he is in a state of unjust,

00:13:24--> 00:13:45

to whom, to himself, wah wah volumen, leaner See, he was being unjust, he would be an unfair he was being a transgressor against himself, not knowing that when human beings fall into this arrogance before Allah Subhana Allah, they are in a state of volume.

00:13:46--> 00:14:05

They're boasting something that Allah Subhana Allah bestowed upon them. They're showing off something that is not theirs. It is the money of Allied is the wealth of Allied is the bounty of Alliance the favor of a law. A law owns us and owns everything we have.

00:14:06--> 00:14:27

Aren't we revalue the law, aren't we the slaves of Allah? Why would you call we call even ourselves Abdullah? The slave of Allah, it is just a final, it is an ultimate submission to Allah subhana wa, and abdomen Look, I am an old slave. And Allah owns me, and he owns everything I have.

00:14:28--> 00:14:31

And whatever my master wants me to do our obey.

00:14:34--> 00:14:37

So he walked into this

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

paradise of here's the earthly paradise and Allah uses the word, gentlemen. Right? Why is that? You will see in his mind and in this fools, mine in this person who has the root the poor concept, the poor perspective of what

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

is important and what is not and what is real and what is not, and what is permanent what is not, to him that garden of graves and palm trees and rivers. That was his paradise.

00:15:14--> 00:15:18

His heart was connected to that garden.

00:15:19--> 00:15:23

His mind was completely occupied with this gentleman.

00:15:25--> 00:15:31

What the hell agenda volume and enough say What did he say? column

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

entamoeba. He.

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

He said, I think not that this will ever perish.

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

What does that tell us about him?

00:15:44--> 00:16:01

So, first thing we know about this person that he's arrogant, he has Cooper, right? He has Kibriya. He has this arrogance in him. The second thing, who are funny, he has attachment. And he has complete admiration of his well.

00:16:04--> 00:16:25

And when he walks into that garden, he said, I don't think this will ever perish. Well, how do you know that? Right? This is just all about pride, and about being attached completely attached to something completely preoccupied with that gentleman, with this parent with this garden called Emma and tavita had he

00:16:27--> 00:16:48

so the first thing that he becomes arrogant takes him to the second stage and and now he's assuming that this would last for him as long as so he feels that that absolute false sense of security that he is independent of anyone else, including our last panel with that

00:16:49--> 00:17:05

villa in Santa Maria por otra. Stavanger. When a human being feels independently wealthy, they become arrogant and the transgressor

00:17:06--> 00:17:33

in Surah tel Allah. Allah says in an incentive a human being becomes a transgressor or raw sterner, when they feel like they, they own it, they have at all, they are in need of nothing. And that leads the human mind the disbelieving human mind, the heart that has no Eman in it, into a state of volume into a state of unjustice injustice to oneself.

00:17:35--> 00:18:05

So Allah says, He walked into this wall of volume on Linux, he in that state of volume, and he said, I don't think this will ever perish, because he was feeling the absolute power. He's very wealthy. This gardens can never dry up, never see drought, drought or famine, because here's the rivers right flowing right in there. I'm afraid not of the wind, because here are the palm trees surrounding and guarding my grapes.

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

So what can happen?

00:18:09--> 00:18:19

He said, I don't think this will ever perish. Nothing will ever happen to this. So he felt independent. He felt completely in no need

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

for anything.

00:18:22--> 00:18:26

And then he said he transgressed even more. And he said, Who am

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

I to call in?

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

And I don't think the hour will ever happen.

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

The Day of Judgment is can never come.

00:18:36--> 00:18:41

Why is that? What is what does that have anything to do with the greats in the garden and well

00:18:43--> 00:18:45

has to do with the state of his heart.

00:18:46--> 00:18:54

The state of His heart is a state of arrogance and boastfulness. someone thinks that he's already reached the peak of everything.

00:18:55--> 00:18:57

He's got his ultimate reward.

00:18:58--> 00:19:02

And his reward is already in his hand. So what does he need accurate for?

00:19:03--> 00:19:28

Why does he need the Day of Judgment for if he believes that he has been satisfied with what he had, but that's not content, though, as arrogance on his behalf, because he feels like he's got an ultimate wealth that no one else has. And he's better than everyone else. That's how the whole argument started. And at some income, Alan was in a forum. I have money, I have power, I have children.

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

I have everything anyone would want.

00:19:34--> 00:19:59

So I don't think that this will go away. Now I don't even now believe in the Day of Judgment anymore. I don't believe that they will this will go away and I don't believe in the resurrection and I have what I need. Or am I gonna say I call him and then he made a stink rock. He just say well, even for the sake of argument, suppose that day of judgment is gonna come Why?

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

Rudy Larabee

00:20:02--> 00:20:15

and if I if indeed I am brought back to my Lord on that day of resurrection. Yeah. Then the higher amin Herman pallava, I surely shall find better than this. When I returned to him,

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

Where did he come in for that? Was that assumption.

00:20:22--> 00:20:35

He's assuming that if Allah subhana wa tada bestows worth earthly and worldly favor upon someone, for Allah gives up this dunya to someone that that means.

00:20:37--> 00:20:52

And his opinion and his understanding that that means that a law favors that person over everyone else. So if a law favors that person, it only is logical in his mind that when he needs a law on the Day of Judgment, he will also favor and again,

00:20:53--> 00:21:14

right, is what this person said, I'm good. I deserve it. Right? I mean, this is his attitude. And since Allah knows, I'm good. And I deserve it. He's already given me this in this dunya. So even if we assume that I'm going to be resurrected in Africa, I expect nothing less.

00:21:16--> 00:21:25

I expect nothing. But even more energy than the higher on me now we'll even find better than this. This is the pinnacle of arrogance.

00:21:26--> 00:21:40

This is the ultimate arrogance. It's an assumption after assumption after assumption. And all these assumptions are based on his own state of his heart, where his mind is.

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

So he fell into all of these mistakes, one after another.

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

So this man that he is talking to.

00:21:52--> 00:22:17

This is a mutual discussion, right? Hey, how are you? How are we? Oh, so they're speaking, they're talking back and forth. So now it is the believers. time it's the believers turn to state his point. So Allah Allahu faulhaber, who are you? Hello. So his companion, his other his friends said to him during the talk with him. A thought

00:22:19--> 00:22:24

of you this belief? Have you turned into this belief?

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

Where is the cover here?

00:22:29--> 00:22:50

Where is the cover? Now this man? He said, Well, I already did to Ella. Robbie is not around. He didn't say another book Omen Allah He didn't say I am your Lord. Oh, he said I wrote it to be if I turn back to my Lord. So this man sort of believes in a lot, right? I mean, on the surface of it. But this surah This

00:22:51--> 00:23:09

is gonna teach us absolutely though he is going to teach us the true solid al Qaeda, and how our key that can be corrupt. Even if someone believes that Allah exists. Even if someone that believes that there is a lord in this dunya there is a Lord for this universe.

00:23:10--> 00:23:23

stenography that can be corrupt still, that the the faith can be completely corrupt. So his his companion said you will become a disbelief. This believer with your words, aka for

00:23:25--> 00:23:31

a fact. Below the halaqa came into Rob was the one who created you out of dust

00:23:32--> 00:23:48

from Minnesota. And then out of the maximum drop of the male and female discharge the egg and the sperm to memory notre filmless a worker entrepreneur and Allah then fashion Jew into a man

00:23:50--> 00:23:54

The first thing is reminding him off, is be careful and see what you're saying.

00:23:55--> 00:24:22

You made kofa you made this belief and you disbelieved and you are nothing but someone who came out of the dirt of the earth of the dust of the earth. The soil that's where you from? What is that arrogance? Why that arrogance? How come you're coming to say Anna Anna me XL woman Kamala as well and etc, as you know for

00:24:23--> 00:24:28

Who are you to say that to other human being to other creatures of Allah.

00:24:30--> 00:24:34

You came like everybody else from a sperm and an egg.

00:24:35--> 00:24:45

And a lot of your minds, humanity with that multiple times in the Quran. Look at your urgent, it's out of dust out of maintaining Lazarus

00:24:46--> 00:24:48

right out of mud.

00:24:50--> 00:24:55

said you know even Adam was created directly from the team where we will create it from

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

home in Malibu, from what you know and even although

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

Just out of reminding us of how humble our beginnings are just you know where you were created from Mima and mahane. From water that is very humble, very, very humble

00:25:15--> 00:25:20

man in Maine. This is what we were created from he said, What are you boasting off?

00:25:22--> 00:25:28

What What do we have to be boast of clean water and mud.

00:25:29--> 00:25:32

That's the only thing we can we can be proud of right?

00:25:33--> 00:25:43

So, he said halakhah came into Robinson lemon looks at in Summa Sakurajima. Where is the Cofer here? Why did he call him a calf?

00:25:45--> 00:25:51

Where are the points where he deviated from the athlete that completely from the belief completely?

00:25:53--> 00:26:23

Right, one of them is in current denying the hereafter. Now we know there are articles there are basis of ina domina delay, or mela equity, what could to be he? Or soon he will you will want to shadow him, Angela, we believe in Allah His angels. We believe in the revelations we believe in the messengers of Allah, we have to believe in the Day of Judgment, then we have to believe in the destiny of God for loss of Hannah without

00:26:24--> 00:26:27

any this belief in any of these is Cofer

00:26:29--> 00:26:41

is covered. Now, one might say well, he didn't completely disbelief in it. He said I don't think it will happen. But if it happens, that is Khufu shock. You can't doubt that.

00:26:43--> 00:27:04

Even any doubt is called Khufu a shock, the disbelief of doubt. And he this believed in the Acura and had doubts about it. And then he had his own scenario about what's going to happen when he meets a law. Right. So he made another type of offer.

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

He made Kufa Ruby.

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

He made himself a lord

00:27:11--> 00:27:12

before Allah,

00:27:13--> 00:27:23

for multiple reasons. Number one, when he was speaking about the bounties that Allah Subhana with Allah has bestowed upon him, he did not mention a law.

00:27:24--> 00:27:40

He says no external mean canalla whereas I am better in well, who gave you that? Well, not mentioned that one word of Allah. believer say Allah bestowed upon me a criminal law. Allah was generous to me with this hamdulillah

00:27:41--> 00:27:50

that is a duty when we mentioned the near knell for law clearly in sort of our MLB near Messi, Rob Baker had this.

00:27:51--> 00:27:56

When we mentioned the normal for law, we need to put words in there and we need to mention the source of the narrative.

00:27:57--> 00:28:14

And the narrative comes from Allah subhana wa Taala because he is the one he is the best or he is the nurturer. This is rubia. So he made Kufa boo boo via by mentioning himself as the source of this. The second type of Guru movia

00:28:15--> 00:28:16

who is Maliki oma de,

00:28:18--> 00:28:25

who is the Owner of the Day of Judgment. Can anyone say if I go to the Day of Judgment, I will get there?

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

Well, I read it to be legit in the Herman mo Conover.

00:28:33--> 00:29:19

And the Hadith the prophets of Allah on the day of judgment on the hour comes they will say one word, yeah, I'll be sending him Yeah, I'll be sending out I'll be sending. How can we meet Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and have expectations. If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no one enters paradise, no one gets the agenda, except by the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. No one can even have enough deeds to measure up to Allah subhanho wa Taala his favor upon us. And the Hadith is known about the the worshipper of the people of Israel, when he was brought to the Day of Judgment before Allah and Allah says enter gender with my mercy said they are a BB Amelie Allah, I have deeds

00:29:19--> 00:29:29

now on a credit for Allah said fine. Put his deeds in one part of the scale and put the bounty the favor of sight on the other side.

00:29:30--> 00:29:46

And all his worship that was long island for how many years? That he was just an avid worshipper. That's all he did. It was not enough for that one Nana for most of Hannah what to add and how many Nana did Allah Subhana Allah give us How many?

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

Let us circle not it's it's not countable is you cannot enumerate the blessings of Allah because there are blessings that we know often. There are

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

blessings that we're not even aware of.

00:30:03--> 00:30:12

The ones that we are aware of are innumerable, cannot count. And there are many more that we are not even aware of.

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

Every day science tells us how fragile The human being is.

00:30:19--> 00:30:39

How we how fragile our existence is, you know, Subhana, Allah takes the clot that is less than one fifth of an inch, to render us completely dysfunction, paralyzed, complete with a bad stroke of neurologist and audience, right?

00:30:40--> 00:30:47

I mean, it's one little capillary vessel that can rupture in the brain, what can happen to we turn into a vegetable.

00:30:49--> 00:31:34

And we have seen leaders of the world people who used to be you know, hear me, I will smash, I will crush, little heart attack after a stroke, they're done. They're now a vegetable on a ventilator. They have no power, completely powerless. We have a very fragile existence. And we are in the hands of Allah subhana wa. And we have to realize that every moment of our lives, we cannot take our breathing for granted, will lie in there are things that we see the lie every day, people that will just fine. They get what hit was clocked along pneumonia, some you know, just things happen.

00:31:36--> 00:31:47

And that's why we have to always understand that every day we that passes is a gift from Allah. And every day that is coming is a gift from Allah and how do we use that?

00:31:48--> 00:31:54

How do we invest in that? Because that's what we are going to be asked about on the Day of Judgment.

00:31:55--> 00:32:22

So this person made Cofer so he said a comfortability halaqa came into Robin from me not putting so much, Caracciola, see these words that he was saying, they're easy to say, but they're very heavy in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when a believer hears it, he understand the enormous deviation. Then he said, lacking one la hora be? No, Allah is my Lord.

00:32:23--> 00:32:53

So he tested him testify total boulby which was denied. This was the first part of Kufa. So he corrected him, he said, No, but about me. You're saying you're better than me. I'm content with what Allah has given me, by the heydo Ruby, by describe his oneness, and he is my Lord, and He is my only Lord. I am his slave, and he is my law. That's that's how the relationship is going to go.

00:32:54--> 00:33:00

And then he added, while I actually could be wrong, I had and I will not ascribe partners to my Lord.

00:33:02--> 00:33:10

So what why is that person? The other the disbelieving person, he's a Catholic, and he's also a mushrik.

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

Why is he a mushrik?

00:33:14--> 00:33:20

Was he someone that is associating others? Is there anything in the surah so far to tell us why he is a mushrik?

00:33:22--> 00:33:30

Why he associates partners with Allah experience, right? What is it? He's worshipping? What was online? himself?

00:33:31--> 00:34:01

All right, so many other illa Huwa as antetokounmpo alayhi wa keila. Allah says, In the Quran, have you seen that whom taken him his own desires, as a lord, as an Allah as a god, as a deity, this person is driven, and he is more behind his own capris. You know, he's making things up, and he's believing them. And he's worshipping his own self.

00:34:02--> 00:34:10

And that there is nothing another thing that he's worshiping also beside Allah beside himself, is worshiping the dunya.

00:34:11--> 00:34:17

He's worshiping this life he's worshiping as well. Is dedicating his service to

00:34:18--> 00:34:28

his dedicating his service, his servitude, not only to Allah with no other partners, he's serving his own money, his own wealth, and his own interest.

00:34:30--> 00:34:31

So is he a mushrik? Or is he not?

00:34:33--> 00:34:42

That's why he's saying you know, you, you have blown out though he's completely out of your heart. And it's in its entirety.

00:34:43--> 00:34:58

Now handle the new little hidden movie and the headless man. You made yourself medical muddy. You made yourself a god beside Allah. You worship this life and your wealth. Your servitude is not to Allah, it is to your money.

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

And then you may call for in the Day of Judgment.

00:35:03--> 00:35:41

So he's now he said in showing him, like all your heart, all callers to Allah on a call to Allah, you first have to reveal the errors of the ways of the ones that you're trying to call. You're not on the right path. And then you have to show them where the right path is. He said, Well, Lola is the Hunter genetec. Now you walked into this gender. What did the first verse say? The whole agenda volumen enough say? He walked into his own paradise his own garden, and he was a transgressor upon himself and he said what he said, he said now when Lola is the Hunter genetec

00:35:43--> 00:35:54

it was better for you when you entered your paradise to say kolter Masha Allah, La quwata inlab in LA to say,

00:35:55--> 00:36:08

that which Allah wills will come to pass La quwata illa billahi there is no power but with Allah subhana wa tada ascribed to things to Allah subhanho wa Taala and mushiya will

00:36:10--> 00:36:20

ascribe the machine as the will of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to Allah, because you have no say so you have no mushiya except with the permission of Allah subhana wa Tada. So who do you think you are?

00:36:22--> 00:36:24

You're such a and nothing

00:36:26--> 00:36:38

and you you're you're boasting before Allah subhanho wa Taala this escribe this machine and this will only to Allah, Masha Allah, La quwata illa Allah

00:36:40--> 00:36:59

and there is no power except with Allah subhana wa Tada. And these words when you see wealth of others, when you see your own wealth, so we don't have the arrogance, we don't allow any pride to come into our heart. These are the words that we should always say, should always Masha Allah La quwata illa.

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

Allah has all favor he gives it to him whomever He wills.

00:37:05--> 00:37:07

Allah decides whom he is going to give that to.

00:37:09--> 00:37:15

And we should be happy with his decree. Whether we are the receivers We are the recipients.

00:37:16--> 00:37:55

I should say we are the recipients of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, his bounty, or if we see that bounty bestowed upon other people. We should have absolute content with the wisdom of Allah, the power of Allah and the will of Allah Masha Allah La quwata in Lebanon, in Tirana, condemning him Allah Allah said, If you belittle my affair, if you see that I am less than wealth, and less than children, and I have no I don't have the power that you have. It is you should be more thankful and more grateful to your Lord and you should ascribe that bounty back to Allah subhanho wa Taala instead of taking the credit up to yourself and you are nothing

00:37:57--> 00:38:04

Lola is the Hunter genetica Kota Masha Allah La quwata illa Billah in Tirana, condemning can Allah wa

00:38:05--> 00:38:08

he said, You said I don't think this will perish

00:38:12--> 00:38:19

is responding to every little point that that other person said. Pamela, this Quran is so miraculous.

00:38:20--> 00:38:55

This man said Allah Allah no and happy to have you here better. I don't think this will, nothing will ever happen to this garden. This garden is secured. This garden is a fortress, there are palm trees, there are rivers, there is nothing that can happen to it. The believer said, you know how to like just like, you think of somebody who's either too strong and they think that their strength is you know, they'll never grow weak. Nothing can ever happen. They're invincible. Or you think of someone that is so wealthy they think you know, things are not gonna turn around. You know, life is like a wheel. You know, you're one day you're up and the other day you're down. And that's just what

00:38:55--> 00:39:29

we'll call a Yamanaka will have been nasty or the days in turns among people, even culture civilization countries is nobody stays on top. That's the way for last panel Tad. But when you're on top, when someone is on top, they think they're low always be on top. They think they'll always have that power. So this man is reminding him of the erroneous way and then describe the right way. And then he said, You know what? facts out I'll be your attorney. I'm in genetic, you're boasting over me. You're You're arrogant over me. It may be that my Lord will give me something better than your garden.

00:39:31--> 00:39:59

What is better than that garden? habits and paradise. You know, I have a man I have faith. I have trust in a law. I have submission to Allah, my hope and he didn't say I will get it see the other person his boastfulness? He said, even suppose the day of judgment comes, I will have a better garden this man who is a believer who is a humble before a law, he said I hope as a as a defeater Roger

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

Right, I said, I hope that my Lord will give me a paradise and garden better than yours. But you know what can happen to your garden and it might happen to your garden. Well you'll see now I lay her then a minister map there may be a tournament that will be sent from Heavens upon your garden for to submit houses and sell a car, then it will be a barren slippery Earth.

00:40:30--> 00:40:38

Masha Allah who was a lab left Allah has all the power What do you think you say from the power of Allah? What are you going to go

00:40:39--> 00:40:40

from the grip of Allah subhana wa tada

00:40:42--> 00:41:02

he said, You're this garden that you're boasting over a storm you know you think the the pantry is going to help you something comes down from from Heavens down on this on this on this garden. And you're boasting that there is rivers flowing inside between these two gardens and said I'll use the law. You think rivers don't dry?

00:41:04--> 00:41:22

He said the water is there often the gardens can become become deep sunken underground. You know, the one who make the water gush out of the Earth can make the water go back right into the air. To do a little fun law, Masha Allah La quwata illa. He said I

00:41:23--> 00:41:46

fell into the Allahu palava and you cannot even reach you can never be able to seek that water. If Allah doesn't give it to you, he's reminding him who you are. You are completely dependent on online don't think of yourself as independently wealthy person. Your wealth is dependent on the favor of Allah subhana wa tada and every breath you take is dependent on Allah subhana wa tada

00:41:48--> 00:41:50

and then what Allah says

00:41:51--> 00:41:59

Allah say oh hey Toby, tamari and his fruits were just in circle actually in the Quran it's two words why he thought the simile

00:42:00--> 00:42:01

00:42:02--> 00:42:09

like that everything is he had is gone and again in one recite ation while he thought the summary.

00:42:10--> 00:42:14

So every atom of wealth he had was gone.

00:42:15--> 00:42:27

And Allah Subhana Allah say it in only two words so we can understand how easy it is for a law to take all of that away in a heartbeat in a flash.

00:42:28--> 00:42:31

Allah described his wealth in two verses.

00:42:32--> 00:42:36

Right? But when Allah thinks it used two words,

00:42:38--> 00:42:45

think about that. ponder over that. Well, hey Tabitha, it's over. Who are you?

00:42:47--> 00:42:50

You think you have all of that it is all from Allah subhana wa Allah.

00:42:52--> 00:42:54

Allah giveth and taketh away.

00:42:55--> 00:43:08

Right. Well, he thought eternity and now tells us Allah says, showing us his condition after that happened. All of that arrogance, all of that boastfulness all of that go for all of that shark

00:43:09--> 00:43:11

all of this corrupted al Qaeda

00:43:12--> 00:43:15

for us the high you unlivable cafe.

00:43:17--> 00:43:20

See that? You know, hands up.

00:43:24--> 00:43:26

00:43:46--> 00:43:47

Where is that? Well, where is the gardens? Or the children? Where's the money? It's all gone for us but how you kalibo Cafe Allah I'm for coffee here. You know, this is this was worth a fortune and he's invested everything in those gardens, right? And so coffee her over what he had spent over upon it.

00:44:11--> 00:44:15

What did he spend upon it? Not only money, he spent his email.

00:44:16--> 00:44:23

He spent his arcada over the land. He wasted his own faith over over grapes.

00:44:24--> 00:44:26

Allah and for coffee.

00:44:27--> 00:44:30

He spent his life worshiping that well.

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

And heedless of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:44:35--> 00:44:36

What a regret.

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

What a day of hestra.

00:44:39--> 00:44:48

Allah Subhana Allah describes the day of judgment as Yeoman hestra. Today of regret will endure home Yeoman has threatened

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

right? and warn them of that day of regret when it's all over. And when it's all over. It doesn't help to regret things. It doesn't help to feel

00:45:01--> 00:45:23

guilty or sad or bad, it's gone. It's over. And there homeopathy is called the lump. So he was just turning his hands and clapping him and why are we allowed OSHA and there was just nothing on those. You know, Taro says the the, the grape vines empty there was just nothing.

00:45:24--> 00:45:36

It turns into what his friend wanted Mr. Sidon xalapa, slippery, barren land, there is nothing there. Well, you're cool yeah like 1011 Bushwick

00:45:38--> 00:46:00

and he would say with that I had ascribed no partners with my lord or to my Lord. And Allah says, while I'm deco lo fi atonium, tsunami de la, wa mecanim and pasar and he had no group of men he had no help to help him against a law nor could he defend or save himself.

00:46:02--> 00:46:05

Allah says who nearly killed malaria to lay

00:46:06--> 00:46:19

there on the Day of Resurrection and relay the protection the power the authority the kingdom is all in the hands of Allah, Masha Allah, La quwata 11 Who do you think you are a human being?

00:46:21--> 00:46:24

to to to ascribe attributes of Allah to yourself?

00:46:25--> 00:46:32

To distract yourself by what Allah has given you from the worship of Allah subhana wa tada

00:46:33--> 00:46:44

Who are you to make rules whenever you need to learn to be edgy then the Hara minimum alibi five I suppose I resurrected I will find a better Allah will give me this and Allah will do that for me.

00:46:45--> 00:46:59

Subhana Allah, Allah says no one hahaha de la sua to manifest now in namsa. No one can speak on that de casa de la swap. The voices are all humbled before Allah subhana wa tada

00:47:02--> 00:47:08

latech Allah moon, in lemon as in Allah, Allah, Allah, they cannot speak

00:47:10--> 00:47:19

except those who have permission from Allah, and they say the right thing. Here's a man who claims that he's gonna walk onto the day of judgment and tells a lower to do.

00:47:22--> 00:47:24

Allah says who narikala to learn how

00:47:25--> 00:47:37

to hire higher on Saba. Hi Ron acaba. Indeed he is the best of reward and the best of the final end, and then Allah Subhana Allah gives us the summary of this whole thing. This dunya

00:47:38--> 00:47:39

is a trap.

00:47:40--> 00:48:31

this dunya is a glitter. And you believers Don't be fooled by this dunya Allah says what a mess lol hayati, Jr. Come on Angela homina Santa Tanaka. Hina battlelog, for us baja Shimon through Korea, what can Allah Allah cliche moqtada. And for put forward to them the example of the life of this world. It is like the water like rain that we send down from the sky, and the vegetations of the earth mingles with it. You know, rain comes on a barren land, the grass comes up, vegetation scum come up. And Allah Subhana Allah said, and it becomes fresh and green. Now it looks great. Don't be fooled by that luscious green landscape. Because it is temporary.

00:48:32--> 00:48:41

It is glittering. It is attractive, but it's not lasting. And it's not something that you should put your hopes in.

00:48:42--> 00:48:48

And then Allah says, but later it becomes dry and broken and broken pieces, which the wind scatters

00:48:50--> 00:48:51

the wind scatter

00:48:52--> 00:49:13

and Allah is able to do everything. And then Allah says, he boasted what this man said Anna, xR woman camelon whereas in Africa, I have more wealth, and I have more power, I have more children. Allah says Allah Allah will be known as the natural heritage. Dunya Yes, indeed, wealth and children are the adornment of life of this world.

00:49:15--> 00:49:17

Beautiful Thing, it's a great bounty from Allah.

00:49:19--> 00:49:20


00:49:21--> 00:49:24

that is not what we are after.

00:49:25--> 00:49:30

Allah gives wealth and children to those who he loves. And those who he does not like.

00:49:32--> 00:49:52

You know, we look around us a lot of wealthy people, they even deny the existence of Allah. They deny the Ruby of Allah, the Lordship of Allah, they denied that Allah is one they denied it so hate yet Allah gives them and gives them and gives them it is a fast one a blue Gumball hire you a sharpie fitna. apostolou

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

So Allah subhana wa tada said yes as a man who will be known as the natural hair to dunya while back to solid Hello

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

Hi, Ron Enderby casaba Hi Ron Emma, but the good righteous deeds that last they are about yet that's what last

00:50:12--> 00:50:39

yo Malayan family whatever noon Allah says Emmanuel venioone has a natural heritage dunia then describes the accurate in the Quran he said that is the de Lyonne Pharaoh malamala by noon, children and money is of no benefit in land and at the law, have you convinced any except those to come to Allah subhanho wa Taala with the pure, intact heart. That's the only thing that would help. So Allah says, We're here to solve the heart, Iran in

00:50:41--> 00:50:54

Iran and Allah, there are better with your Lord for rewards and better in respect of hope. If you want to hope with Allah subhanho wa Taala you have hopes to enter Paradise to be saved from the torment of the Hellfire, do good.

00:50:55--> 00:51:03

Come to Allah with an intact and pure hard money and children wealth gathering this dunya worshipping this dunya is not going to help.

00:51:05--> 00:51:08

Many of us say we don't deny the Day of Judgment we believe in.

00:51:10--> 00:51:17

But we always have to review ourselves at the end of the day. How many hours did I work for this? dunya? And how many hours that I work for there?

00:51:19--> 00:51:21

What am I favoring?

00:51:23--> 00:51:29

Where is my scale? Where is my heart? What is my heart and no one knows that except you and Allah Subhana with that

00:51:32--> 00:51:40

every action that we do, can be counted for us. As long as the Nia as the intention is pure. You can go to work

00:51:41--> 00:51:54

and spend hours at work with the intention of pleasing Allah feeding your family in a good way, being a good role model for Islam for humanity, and then come back home and you have spent your entire day in worship.

00:51:56--> 00:52:00

Where is our heart? Where do we keep our goal? What do we think of?

00:52:01--> 00:52:05

That's what we need to understand from these verses brothers and sisters.

00:52:06--> 00:52:20

Allah subhanaw taala tells us that this money and the wealth on the on the outward of it, it might be good, it's glittering, it's gold. It's money. It's the ox, its buildings, its villas, it's all of that.

00:52:21--> 00:53:07

But that may not be good. Allah says as a Buddha and Sora minoo there is no time to go over all of that. But just go to verse 55 through 61 and try to do that at home but I'll go through part of it quickly. Allah says as a Buddha and the man woman Don't be me, man, you were born in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Bella shalom. Allah says, Do they think that wealth and children with which we enlarge them, which we make them wealthier and grander? We hastin onto them with good things Nay, no. But they perceive not they don't understand what this is all about. And then Allah says in the true goodness in the Latina home in Hachette European, Latino home big European Union, Valentina

00:53:09--> 00:53:14

Valentina, una moto coloboma, gelato en la manera BM Rajan Alaikum

00:53:16--> 00:53:53

wa sahbihi those who have fear of Allah on their hearts, those who believe in the signs of a law, those who have associate no ascribe no one with a loss of Hannah with Allah, and those when they do the good deeds, they hearts are trembling with fears, they just want acceptance from Allah subhanho wa Taala those are the ones that are hastening and rushing into the good deeds. That's what's good. It's not the wealth and the money it's the good deeds and the good faith again and again again in the Quran. And Allah Subhana Allah says, Yeah, you hadn't so Dakota come walk show yo malaria does he? Well, he don't Our Lady. Well, no, no, don't watch as in our

00:53:54--> 00:54:06

in our de la Vela double run a common hire to dounia Hola, hola. Camila. Alonso redlock members is 33 Allah says, Oh, you beat people or mankind. Be afraid of your Lord.

00:54:08--> 00:54:15

And fear the day when no father can avail for his son and no son avail for his father.

00:54:16--> 00:54:59

Children is not going to help us on the Day of Judgment. Our parents cannot even help us on that day of judgment. Allah says Verily, the promise of a law is true. So let not this worldly present life deceive you. Don't be fooled by this live while you're on a Camilla Hill Road and normally the chief deceiver shavon anahola deceive you about Allah. What did she say to Allah subhana wa Taala How is he gonna lure mankind into jahannam How is he gonna lower lower mankind into the evil deeds of Trayvon said Loza in another home filled out while we unknown engineering, I will make this earth beautiful for them. And that's how I'm going to be fooled them

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

That's how I'm gonna deceive all of them

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

except those who worship Allah subhanho wa Taala sincerely, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to be of them, according to Kali has our stuff for Mojave. Many welcome fair for them suffering
