dear brothers and sisters
Welcome to another session of the Quranic themes. Okay, there are many themes in the Quran and we're going to just look at different themes in the series.
One of those we covered last week was to keep a balance, a balance in many things. Another theme is that the human being okay because the Quran has come down to specifically
if you if you ask the question, why did the Quran come down when the Qur'an came down? Because it wants to join a the mahalo which is the creation with the holly who is the creator. Okay, that's the whole purpose of the Quran. There are many reasons why the Quran has come down allows which I said houden It's a guidance he has said. It's a reminder, Allah said Shiva, it will cure. Allah has said it Hidayat, its guidance. Allah has said, you know, it's a
book from a larger adult so that people can go out from darkness into light lit region as we know, it and know, many different reasons have been given. But if you summarize all of them, you get one thing, which is, Allah sent this book, to make the creation, be connected with the Creator. That's the whole purpose of this book. Because Eliza Halak is the creator, he created the heavens and the earth He created the human being. And the human being be are the genes being the mukluk, the creation, often they break off from the Harlock from the Creator. And there are many dangers for this to happen. So one example many, you know, great scholars have given, okay, is imagine somebody
is flying a kite. Okay, imagine somebody flying a kite, the kite, just imagine the kite has got its own sense of you know, being aware and having his own thoughts and independency. Okay, so the kite, if you look at it, it's flying high in the air, right, that's when that's keeping it afloat. And sometimes the kite is going towards the left, and sometimes it was right, but overall, the car, the kite is having a really good time in the air.
Now, the only one problem the kite has,
is that it's stuck to something, right? There's something in his tail, that it's pulling it. So it's pulling in some way, sometimes the ride to the left, okay, the kite can't see from high up there, the kite can't see the person on the ground, who's actually got, you know, the string in the other end of the string in his hand. And obviously, he's controlling the kite and I imagine the kite can't see them. But the character has a problem, which is if only it could be free. Okay, if only it could be free of this tail, the string that is that is catching, catching it and it can, you know, go where he wants to go. He wants to fly very, very far. He wants to fly and fly and fly and see the
entire world. Okay? So imagine if the kite had a choice, and the kite could cut its string off.
Okay? And the kite actually thinks that you know, by cutting the string of, I'm going to be totally free. What will happen to the kite. If you want to know what's gonna happen
is not only going to fall down, but it's going to go for a crash landing somewhere, it's going to probably get caught up in a tree somewhere probably in water somewhere else, we know for sure that kites are going to be flying. Now, scholars, some scholars have given this example to say that the Mahalo for the creation
has got in Milan, the creation has got certain things that bind it. If the creation feels that it wants to completely cut itself off, from the invisible harlot from the invisible creator, there's going to be disaster for this human being.
This human being will will cause disaster for itself. That's why the Quran has come down, which is to make a bond between the creation and the Creator. Now, last week, we covered about this balance, okay. And one of the things the Quran does is that it explores who the harlot is explores or who the Creator is.
Another thing the Quran does is it explores you the human is. Okay, so he wants to join the, the mclubbe the creation of humans and genes as well, to the harlot, but it clearly shows us what the human is, what allows origin is, and it will also show how the connection is. So we're going to now discover these one by one, right? So straightaway, I'm going to get to the human being. In this session session, the theme is going to be about the human being because the human being is not analyzed properly, then the human being may not understand himself or herself. And if we can't understand the human being, we can't understand the actual maloca the creation that Allah wants to
address, okay, and its limitations and limitations the human Next time we will look at Allah azza wa jal as the Holic and we'll also look at the the how Allah wants to connect the human, the humans the genes, which is the monologue, the creation, to the harlot to the to the Creator, right now.
has been described in the Holy Quran, and Allah azza wa jal has sometimes called it insan, which is the human being, and sometimes Allah said, anass, which is people. Now, there are limitations that the human being has many limitations of those limitations, that one of the biggest things that a human has, is the human like insan, okay. insan has been, has been taken from a word from Arabic, which has owns, which is familiarity.
The human likes to connect itself to things that it's familiar with.
And the human does not like to connect yourself with things that it's unfamiliar with. right this is this has always been the case with a human being like, you drop a human being somewhere where either he can't speak the language or he is find these people a bit, you know, different to him, the culture is different. The more differences you find the more unfamiliar things you find between this human being and other human beings, he will, you know, be closed up, or she will be closed up, the more familiar things you find with a human being and many other people or some people one person, the more they're going to connect up. So one of the first things you have to understand is that the
human being, it's a good thing where, you know, we were people who connect with others who we can get on with, but it's a bad thing when the human being is so accustomed to certain things that he finds it alien, or he finds it very far fetched that he can connect himself up with something that he's not accustomed to. Right. And one of those things is the Quran. Because the Quran came down the word of Allah came down to the human being, the human being one of the first questions why was it so puzzling that this program will be sent to another human being? Right? This could only be sent to another human being and Allah azza wa jal discussed this in Surah. Yunus which is Surah number 10.
right at the beginning, allows john says, occasionally, NASA has given an hour hyena Illa, or do the minimum that does do people have a, an unfamiliar experience? And they have a question objection. And they find that it's really strange that we have inspired to a man from amongst them that we've inspired to another human being, okay. So this is one of the things Now, the other thing is the human being.
When it is unfamiliar with something, it starts to create suspicion and doubt, or it will start to justify itself or you know, justify his own sort of thoughts, that this thing that I'm unfamiliar with, I'm not gonna just basically believe it, then you know, I'm not going to put it into my system, belief, okay, believe trying to believe in something requires someone to examine it, to come in contact with it. And one thing a lot of people have done, a big mistake the humans have done is that they have rejected a lot because they weren't even familiar with what allows the origin is saying or who Allah is, or what is what is what he is saying, what his speech is saying. And a
disease of the of the many diseases that the human being can have is arrived, which is being doubtful of something. If a person has doubt, of let's just say for example, a doubt whether something is actually yours, that doubt can can continue to grow and grow and you probably would never satisfy this person.
So from the balance that we talked about last week, one of the one of the things that the human being has to balance is the world of familiar things and unfamiliar things. And the world of accepting things and rejecting things. He can't just reject things because he is unfamiliar with it. Right? So what happens here is that, let me let me go back and say, if I said to you, like a lot of people know, I'm just gonna get random example. Okay, from my head. Okay. So let's just say the Harry Potter books, right? People, not many people know about the Harry Potter books. And they were written by this woman called JK Rowling. And this is just a random thing that I'll come back to the
So the thing is, the Harry Potter book series was written by authored by JK Rowling. And it's a it's a fact well known fact. And let's say for example, somebody has doubt in this. It says, somebody has doubted this. So they say, Well, how do we know whether JK Rowling wrote these books? Okay, there's a there's an objection to this. So we say, look, it's you know, her names all over the thing. But how do we know that she actually wrote this? She could have got somebody else to write in. And she put her name on the books.
You said, Well, okay, let's go and interview JK Rowling. So imagine somebody interviews and says, oh, did you read the book? She said, Yes, I wrote the books.
The person who's got doubt will say what?
They say, What? How do we know she's not lying?
Here she is, she's the author. She's been interviewed. And she says, I wrote this book.
And the person was, how do you know she's not writing? Okay. She says, Okay.
I'll give you proof proof is I'll show you my writing. All right, I'll show you my writing. When I wrote to you with the pen. These these chapters of this series is a book number six, I've got chapters from the book number five, I've got written pieces where I wrote with my own handwriting.
Now she produces that, when the person of doubt, say,
How can we confirm that she hasn't written this after the book was published?
All right. Well, how do we know that while whoever was writing it, that she never had access to that person, right. And she saw what they were writing, so she just copied it with her own her own handwriting.
You guys understand? The thing about doubt is, it will carry on killing the human being is just one of the weaknesses of the human being. That's why Allah azza wa jal, he started the Quran by saying that you can keytab lowri Buffy, if you approach this program, or if you approach even, let's just say for example, we are we are believers. The first thing is to non believers, we're going to say, Don't pick up this code,
and have doubt as a human being. Why? Because if you start with all this doubt, give it give it a chance to at least look in the book, examine the book, read the book, compare the book with other books, and so on. And then come to a conclusion don't just come with a whole doubtful heart. I'm familiar with this book. Oh my god, I'm gonna reject this book because I'm not you know, I'm not too happy with taking something in my belief system that I'm not too accustomed to right. Don't do that. Okay. But to the believers, we are believers. Why are we believers as human beings reading lowrider fi, why? Because there is a message for us that we we as Muslims should not have doubt in the things
that we believe or practice. So for example, you find many Muslims will say that my dry doesn't get accepted, or one of the reasons why the dry doesn't get accepted, is because you've got this element of doubt inside you, that you make him draw, but you kind of believe inside you there are no making this draw. But I kind of know that mud was not going to be answered.
That's a form of doubt.
And that's a human weakness. So Allah is saying to us, the opposite of doubt, is yucky. It is full, you know, belief and conviction that this is the absolute truth. So if you look interestingly, in the beginning of Surah Baqarah, Allah says radical kita will rip and then a couple of hours later he says, well, Bill, Hirata, whom up noon and in the in the afterlife, they have a very deep sense of conviction believe that this is the truth. Okay. So a lot of moves from doubt, and not accepting anything to having full connection and belief and deep, you know, they have deep sort of belief and acceptance that this product
And is the right thing. And this is what allows the agenda is trying to show the human being that one of the balances you've got to give give yourselves All right, is that you've got to find, you know that right level of saying, Okay, I'm not going to reject everything because of doubt. I'm not going to just accept everything whenever I see it, but at least I will go ahead and examine things. Now. This human being has another problem. His problem is a lot describes in Oklahoma code and is agile.
Agile is a sense of being hasty. Allah subhanaw taala put on hold call incentive in Agile, the human being has been created hasty, as in his nature is that or her nature is that they want to have some results quickly. And that couldn't have been a worse time than today. Because people want answers like that, because the internet is available. You guys insane? Yeah, people, people will give you a question on WhatsApp. And they want answers like that. Because it's free, it can be really fast. And if you don't give it within a few seconds, then they're going to get upset with you. Now Allah azza wa jal wants to get us to understand as human beings, our weakness is agile. Our weakness is that we
want things really quickly.
What allows them to teach the human being is that take the time.
Belief is something which you have to acquire a steadily you can't get all belief straightaway. And, and if you in the process of trying to look at my book, if you want to understand it very quickly, or if you want to make conclusion very quickly, then you're going to act out of your own hastiness.
And because of that, you're going to end up rejecting the truth. So what Allah wants us to do is allow us to be as human beings, he's telling us to be steady in our conclusions and to take a bit of time. Okay, because a human being, when he's hasty or when they're hasty. A lot of a lot of problems happen. Like, for example, I'll be straight up here, you know, most most car accidents, you know, most car accidents. Why do they happen?
There's one element in there, which is, obviously the human being takes a risk, or they're unaware of, you know, what they're doing, at the moment that they're having the act of just before the moment I had the accident. But there's one thing which is being hasty. If you want to do things quickly, because you're doing so quickly, your attention doesn't go to the right dry place. And that's why there's an accident. Allah azza wa jal has filled the Quran up and told us where the human being will start to even out of his own hasty, you know, approach he'll even say, Oh, you know, I don't care even if if Allah curses this.
This is the plan okay. In an hour class to the universe and number 11. So number 10, number 11. Allah says, Allah, Allah holy NASA shuttle a star Jalla Hamid hydrilla ko de la him Allahu Allah azza wa jal says that if Allah wanted to hasten for people, the evil or the bad things
if allow him to do that, because a human being is fed up of asking ALLAH says, Okay, forget this, damn this curses. Allah said, Well, I could have really cursed it. But I'm not as hasty as a human being. And I'm not in either. Allah doesn't appreciate these these hasty attitude that we've got, but it's a weakness that we have to understand that we have. So number one, doubt, number two, agile and this hasty attitude that we have. Another one, Allah azzawajal tells us that we've got a weakness of is that the human being,
he has got an attachment inside him of hope and love. And if the love in his heart gets attached to the wrong thing, then he'll forget his holiday, we'll forget his creator. Okay. It's been embedded within the human being for him to be tested, certain loves have been given
certain things in our hearts have been put inside there that we will love these things. Otherwise, we wouldn't operate the way we operate. Imagine Allah created the world, a world where men don't love women and women don't love men.
The whole human generation will be destroyed in one generation.
No man would ever marry a woman. No woman would ever marry a man and therefore they would not have children. And kaboom. The whole generation is wiped up. That's one of the first things Allah started off saying is that chahatein minimes Allah said, z NAS
Whoa Boucher I have given the humans I have made it adorable for them to love women like this for men towards women and obviously the opposite is there which is women two men have made men and women love one another I put this in the system because a lot one says to get together he wants us to procreate and he wants us to get in a life where we're going to test each other the man test the woman the woman test the man the husband, you know is a test for the for his wife, the wife is test for for her husband and so on so forth. Okay, so this is no good answer Alia Milan surah number three, and it's ayah is at the beginning of surah Allah Milan and his Ayah number 14 Okay, so one is
that another one Allah said Benny has given love in the human being for children, the parents love children that Allah says cannot even more control
to hold gold to hold silver to hold like money is something that the human will love because allow them to test us with children and he wants to test us with the money so he made us loves those things. We'll have them and then he'll test us with it. Next one Allah said halal masala, the branded horses which were horses reserved for races in those times and in our times is like fast cars in our time is like something that will give you a mark over other human beings in terms of you know, what, what how fast you are in terms of speed or in terms of traveling and so on. Okay, next one, Allah has it and he will have he has said, you know, animals or cattle and have cultivation or
having land okay? These things Allah has given us a love for this is good for us. But it's also a test for us and it's also a weakness of the human being. Because of the human beings love for these things. He starts to or she starts to forget the Holic the Creator.
Okay, this is a big weakness in the human hand several plays in the Quran. Allah has reminded us he said, like in one part of the analyzer, Kela, Beltre, hibou de la jolla, whatever una era, all human being you are, you know, you you're loving, okay, you fall in love with the thing that you can acquire quickly, to UI haste. And you like to acquire things really quickly. And this is your fault that because of that, you've now shunned the era shun the next world because of your love for this world. Okay, this is in Surah
surah, number 75, sort of gamma. And this is iron number 20 and 21 caliber to Hebron Elijah. So basically human being is hasty and the world is just there, you can acquire it straightaway. But to acquire the akhirah is something that takes time, you have to exert a lot in this in this world, and you don't see any results until you die. So, that is something which is far away, here, ah, it's coming next, but if I do something for this world, I see the results straight away, like I invest the money, I see profit straightaway. So I can see that straight away I can feel it, I can enjoy it, I can take it back. If I you know marry a woman or woman marries a man they can see the results
straightaway, okay, they can see the results straightaway. They love being in the company of one another. If I have children, some of their children well they love their children they can see the results straightaway whether it's you know cars or anything else, they can see the results and feel and get something in return. And this is why the human being will not connect with his heart because he's after what's near and what's close close to him. And in various AI ads. Allah said look, you know, your problem is that if you carry on doing this, I will give you the I will give you loads of the thing that you want right now. So unless and Montana you read the larger agenda, Allahu Allah
said that whosoever wants to get this quick and you know, sort of quick running world and this quick achieving world, Allah says,
Allah, I'll make it happen really quickly for you. I'll give you this world, but then you will lose out in the Acura and after that you're going to have janome you're going to have you know Hellfire because you shunned Acura, you disbelieved in me, you left this my way. And you went purely for for the dunya. So this is in Surah Surah Surah, number 17 and number 18. So if you really want wanted a lacing for you, and then through Madonna who Jana Mallya, you've only got Hellfire that have kept for you. And in the next verse, Allah says woman or other hero was it
Has Allah saya whoever actually desires or wants the actor or the next world and they actually make some, they do some work to try and get the actor. Allah says if you're a believer, well who momento Nika canazei you Matura you're working for the actor that is going to be appreciated. Okay? It's going to be appreciated. Now.
What's the other thing that the human being has a problem with? The human being has a problem. Okay? Can you remember the things I'm saying? So number one is
the doubt number two is no, sorry.
hastiness, number three is
sorry, you're allowed losing here is what is love. And I said to you one before that, which is his familiarity. So, doubt, whatever the human being is familiar with, and so on. And I went into his hastiness and I went to into his love. Another problem with the human being is his use of logic with things he cannot see and comprehend. Okay, so Allah azza wa jal is saying look, you're gonna make a big big mistake.
You know, normally normally logic is something that we want to use reasoning somebody want to use our last president plan he said don't they reason don't they think Africa talk alone use your intellect the US intellect. Allah subhanaw taala Quran don't use sort of take a reminder from this all this is you want us to reason Yes. But if you reason with something or you start to make a logic with something which you cannot comprehend, which you cannot fully understand, or which you haven't seen, or which you cannot fully get your head around, then you made a big mistake. Okay? So Allah azza wa jal has, you know, he even uses certain parts of the Quranic telescope, do you not see this?
Do you not see that? Are they the same? These are things he wants us to think about? So for example,
in the 22nd, Jews of the Holy Quran,
this is Surah farted. So number 35. Allah says, What is the will? Well, boss is the one who is blind and the one who sees
they're not equal
and listened to the last reason they're not equal while of Luma to one another, in the next verse, neither darkness and light are equal, then it says, while a window will allow nor is the shade and being outside of the shade in the sunray nor is that equal What am I yes they will.
While I am what no other living and the dead equal Okay, rather living or the dead equal. Now, what Allah azza wa jal is trying to do with these ions and there are many different ions in the in the Holy Quran like this. is Allah is trying to tell us that do you think the people who believe and don't believe are going to be treated equally? Do you think Holly estherville levina, Ala Moana Allah Dena la llamada Modi's in the people who know and the people who don't know they should be treated equally, what are you saying? So what Allah wants us to do is to think about these verses and say that the life of this world, and then next life is never going to be equal, things are going
to be very different. And the way we can see a blind person and a person who sees they're very different. Why? Because the one who has the site of belief, and the Quran is going to be very different from the one who doesn't have belief. And that doesn't doesn't have that insight. So Allah is triggering a lot of thought inside is yes, but where the human being makes a mistake is he sees something in this world. And he starts to question God because of it. And he says, Well, how can this and how can that. So for example,
there's human beings that have taken raw material of, let's say, for example, a dead bone.
They've taken a dead bone.
This happened in Rasulullah sallallahu time, one of his enemies, took a dead bone
that was old. That was that has been down there for a long time. And he was already crumbling. So what he did is took the dead bone in front of the province of Allah Islam.
And he said, he crushed it.
He crushed the bone.
And as he crushed it, and then opened it, there was Dustin Daniel
I blue, and he said, You tell me that God's gonna bring this back to life again.
Now what he's done is that the human being has taken something that which is tangible, something he sees something which he can examine. And he is then now now he's made an analogy between this and the Acura and he said, Well, we're not going to come back to life because this thing is dead and this thing you know, is is crumbled to pieces. Do you think that this alone is going to make this thing come back alive again? So you can see where the logic has, has gone wrong because Allah azza wa jal then talks back and he gives a verse of the Quran and it tells the human being where he's gone wrong. And this is in Surah. Yaseen, which is number 36. Allah says our mural in the sand and
Hala canal Allah says that has this human being forgot
that I created him in the first place.
mean notes fan I created him when I'm gonna be Nanami you got bones? Yeah, you just crushed a bone in your hand and use
my beloved face and you said how can I create that? Oh, by the way, oh yeah, you got bones inside you, haven't you?
You've got bones inside you, haven't you? like okay, if you look at the human being the human being that question Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam does he have bones in his body? Yes or no?
Yes. So these bones give him his whole structure? Yes, they give him his strength. They give him his ability to hold his mouth in place. And then to use his tongue and his jaws to move them attractive speak and to argue with Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam and to argue with a lot Yes.
Allah said Hang on a minute. When I created you I created human not far.
I created you from from a water. Okay, coming from your father. Which is a water that we know people would not even want to smell.
I created you from that sperm. And that hang on a minute that doesn't have any bones in it.
Does does that have any bones in it? No. So you created from that? And then suddenly you had bones.
So don't even think about yourself? How did you get your bones
now that you hold a bone in your hand and if you crumble it in you, you blow it when you get your bones from which you got your structure from which you got your jaws right in your face and from favor hoo ha see movie. And now you are clear, argumentative person. This is in Surah Yasin number 77.
What about Lana masala he gives me an example with the dead bone and blows it one nesea yet he forgets how he was created.
Color. He says, Man Your hair is warm when you're on him. How will Allah bring back these bones alive when they're completely disintegrated and completely gone?
And he forgets about his own creation. Calling you're here, levy and Sha, Allah marva tell him that the one who created the bonds in the first place is going to create the second time. So here's where the humans logic has failed him. Because the human looked at something which is seen, which is tangible, which is something which he can, you know, examine, I found that he made a conclusion with what what has not been seen, which is in the afterworld something
that is non tangible. Now, Allah azza wa jal puts this down in the Quran for the human being to understand that his logic should not be used in the things that are from the hype
with the aim of the unseen there has to be an A through this Quran once you've examined this Quran and machines Quran, Allah is asking us to put belief in the unseen belief in Allah belief in the angels belief in the genes and belief in whatever is in the unseen, okay? Especially the fact that Allah azza wa jal has got a whole Acura and the whole after all that is coming, if the human being uses his logic with the things that he sees, and he starts to examine, he's going to make a massive error with the way he's going. Okay. So again, what is the what what I said to you? What's, what's the first weakness that he's got?
Doubt now the one I talked about, when he's unfamiliar with something, he doesn't want to accept another one I said,
hastiness, okay, he's hasted. One way to do things, another one.
Love for things. He attaches himself to things or she touched on them because of that the leader Holic another one
Sorry, this lot not to use the logic in things that he hasn't seen or she hasn't seen and therefore cut themselves off to highlight and cut themselves off the the Creator. Another one which allows Odell discusses is the human being okay? In his basic nature loves the fact that he's got problems out the way and he's having a good time The human being is overjoyed the human being wants to wants to, you know, have a party basically wants to be is thrilled, she's thrilled. Okay, but this moment that there is some problem, the human being starts to moan the human being starts to complain, the human doctor, why the why that this isn't the basic nature of the human being and it's a massive
weakness, okay. So, this has been discussed in few places.
going to give you one example of it, which is in Surah, March, okay surah March, which is Surah number 69. Sorry, number 70. Sorry, so, number 70. And alasa discusses this in sort of 70 odd number 19 in in Santa Julio hallouwe. Either massage shabu Jesu,
muscle hydro Manoir inland masala. Now, what Allah azza wa jal says is that when the human being gets something
and then the just achieved some some some good maneuvers, they don't want to give it to anybody else. The human being in his nature wants to carry on accumulating things for himself or herself. Because this gives them a sense of independence and it gives them a sense of power. Okay, now what happens is for example, a human being has got let's say money, the human being wants to collect more and more and more money and the human being doesn't want to share it. This is the common human being, they like for example, you know, we've you know, that across the world, there are many people who are rich people who never you know, there are some people Mashallah they look after the poor,
and there are many, there are many of them outside, they don't look after the poor people. But the essence of it is, when the human being has got something the human being doesn't want to give it, right, you give a human being, you know, you give them
the gift of time. Not every human being wants to share their time with others, you give the human being the gift of knowledge. Not every human being wants to share their knowledge with others, you give the human being certain expertise, not every human being wants to share their expertise with others, men who want to keep them to themselves. But if the human being
needing someone else, like let's say, for example, this human being who doesn't want to give to others who doesn't want to help others, somebody else, some other human being comes and helps them or offers them money, or offers them a favor, or they're gonna say no.
Or they're gonna say, Yes, they're gonna say, Mashallah Marhaba, you're a beautiful guy, man, come over here, give me more.
So Allah says, you know, when they, when when on the receiving end, they want to carry on taking? Well, when the when the human being is on the giving, and he doesn't want to do it. Right, this is the nature of the human now, when Allah says, When I give the human being raw, when I give him mercy, when I give something good, the human being, forget, forget not giving to others, the human being wants to walk away from me as the Holic as the giver.
When I don't give, then the human being is there begging, and the human being there is their calling.
What's better for a lot to do? like Alice, this is imagine, Alice got a choice. He can give this human being, I want to give the human more and more and more and more the human being slowly, slowly with his independency or her independence. He wants to sort of say, Well, you know, I want to keep to myself, I'm really blessed. I don't have to give it to anyone else. I'm okay, I'm fine with my life. I don't need anyone, I don't even need God in my life. That's scenario one. Scenario two is a lot takes things of the human being, or a lot doesn't give the human being certain gifts. And therefore the human being is compelled, and obliged to come to Allah and to beseech Allah to for
help. Which one is better for the human being number one or number two?
But we don't like number two do
we hate number two? We love number one, which is carry on receiving from Allah draws answered.
You know, my house is getting bigger my expenses getting, you know, less and my, my gifts are getting more and my love on the earth is more and more, you know, we love that. But if those things go away, we hate it. But if you understand what I've just said, you can understand what allows Michelle does a lot of the times with human beings so he's explaining this now. And he said, Well this is this is a very big problem of the human being. And I'm going to give you a few places and if I can put that in the time. So number one,
this is in the this is sort of Zuma surah number 39. And number eight, Allah says what is our must sell in Santa d'Or when an affliction befalls the human being the arambol muneeb and La this human being starts to make lengthy draws to me. Right? In Surah hermina sajida Allah set feluda in Ru, which is he makes an EN Phaedra
you know, to try and get my mercy. So this is in Surah number 41 ayah number 51. That's what he said over the over here Susan, Allah says money by la he completely turns to me.
Some might either hawala who niyama when I prepare for this human being and I offer the human being I give it to him, what do I give, I give him a blessing. nasi Americana de la, he forgets the fact that he even made it to me beforehand. He forgets the whole experience that he made got to me, and Allah says, we're in must sir, who shall file a note? This isn't pseudonym 41 and number 49. That if any, any kind of miss happening, any kind of tribulation, any kind of you know, bad occurrence before this human being, fire also cannot he loses hope. And he also you know, he becomes someone who's totally lost hope. You also cannot write a becomes a very much feeling that I'm finished. I'm
done. Okay. And in Surah Surah Yunus, Allah azza wa jal says another thing
in Surah units, which is again surah number 10.
This is sort of 10 ID number
12. Allah says waiver must sell incentive door
when an affliction before this human being than he calls us. A lesson school calls me Lee Jambi when he's lying down, he calls me outside and he's sitting down he calls me, I'll call him and when he's standing, he calls me so standing sitting lying down he calls me phenom Naka chef now,
when I take away from him his problem, maraca alania Dona Illa masa, he walks past as if he never ever told me to remove his trouble from him. Like he will walk past whether it's a mosquito who will pass who will pass the Quran, who will pass people call him to the Quran, he will pass you know subito law or any way of Allah he'll walk past as if he never needed a line his life.
Okay, so this is a another human being problem, which is that the human being in his nature, when he doesn't receive he starts to fall apart. She falls apart or look at me. I don't have anything. Oh, so everyone else has got everything.
Okay, this whole complain this whole nature of I don't have anything is whole emptiness. Okay, this is a real human problem. And then within that they sometimes even cut off from God. Sometimes they do come to God and sometimes they just move away from alcoholic, some human beings do that. Okay. You might have seen some of human being beings when the crisis comes, they come to Allah and some human beings when a crisis comes, they move away from God. They say, Well, why should I? If he's like that with me, then why should I go to him? Why should I worship him right now. There's other human beings which Allah has blessed again, there's two cuttings from them. Some Allah has blessed,
who are blessed and they come to Allah, and some Allah has blessed and they move away from Allah. Now let's look at the stats of the people who Allah gave a lot of gifts to, of those people that say the category one Allah gave a lot of gifts. Are there more people after receiving gifts? They tend to Allah? Or are there more people who turned away from Allah from that group, which one turned towards him or turns away from away from him?
From the second category, whom Allah azza wa jal has not blessed so much, has given them blessings but not so much. There's two there's two categories, those who turn towards Allah because you know, they really need him.
Those who turned away from Allah, which one is more turned towards or turned away towards amongst the amongst the poor people amongst the people who don't have much amongst and non intelligent people amongst the people who don't have much money much gifts, much less that, right? They there's more than have turned tools allows origin okay but anyway the weakness that I wanted to point towards is that the human in his nature in her nature wants to complain and wants to feel like their total loss when they don't have something but the human being that actually received something allas allas said in our grant that they could actually walk away from me, or they you know, we know from
some parts of the Quran, they could actually connect with the laws of jail, but most of times they connect that they disconnect from Allah azza wa jal. So this is another weakness, let's go through the weaknesses again. The first one I talked about is doubt the second one, the familiarity thing, the third one, love the fourth one.
Sorry, hastiness, the fifth one,
logic and reasoning not using the vape. Okay, the sixth one.
The sixth, sixth one.
The one that I just discussed, which is
the human being, when he receives gifts, turning away from Allah, when he doesn't get gifts, you know, sometimes they come towards a lot this week. So weakness is that they, when they don't receive something from Allah, they want to, you know, complain, and they want to, you know, be in the nature of not wanting to share not wanting to give others. So there's a, there's a basic problem within the human being in terms of that. And the final one, which I've got seven, the final one is, and there's many in the Quran. But within the time limit that we've got, I've got to just choose some, according to this theme, of understanding the human being.
The final one that we've got is this thing where the human being
the human being fields,
that it has got freedom.
The more freedoms given to the human being, the more that human has destroyed itself.
The less freedom the human has, the more it will continue to produce good things on the earth as a human being and feeling a reason to be connected with allows origin. Okay, maybe it's clicked with some of you, maybe it hasn't. Let's talk about it. There are people who haven't got any responsibilities, or they haven't got the troubles that we have in terms of the burdens, the burdens that we have, that are humans who don't have that, if you've got responsibility, and if you've got burden, and if you've got a need to actually have to go out there and work and you have to basically pay your bills, okay? Let's say for example, you have to pay your bills. So are you going to work?
Are you not going to work to me,
you're gonna work because it's forcing you to work, your condition is forcing you to work, your freedom is limited. Your freedom is limited, you have to work to pay the bills, so you're going to go to work.
Imagine the person who actually doesn't have the need to work, let's say for example, there's this kid who's, let's say his essay is 20, something years old, his dad left a very good inheritance for him. He's got millions in the bank, he doesn't have to work. Okay?
Will he go to work? Most likely not. He's not going to go to work. And the person who's actually working, who has to work? Do you think they're going to get up to a lot of mischeif? Yes or no? Not necessarily. But the person who's got loads of money in the bank, and they don't have to work? What do you think they're going to do?
They're going to go slowly towards mischeif. Let me give you another another example. If you don't actually believe me, okay. You know, sometimes you have in family members, or in your relatives or friends sometimes, sometimes you have these certain people who talk a lot about people. They sit there, they talk about so and so and so and so and so on. So did you hear he's the he's the this happened? Oh, she had a bad thing in this. Oh, did you hear Oh, he acquired this thing. Oh, how did he get that money? or How did he you know, get this gift of is the certain people who chat chat chat not not not about other people. And there are certain people who got who got no you know, who don't
actually, who don't actually talk like that. There are certain people who don't talk like that.
Have you noticed
people who don't have work
people who are like on the
benefits, people who've got loads of time to themselves from amongst them. There's a high amount of people who want to chuck Chuck Chuck Chuck Chuck not not not not about others, because they haven't gotten anything else to do.
Let's just talk about people I want.
People who are busy, who got work, who got jobs who got you know, schedulers busy, they haven't got time for the chit chat, small talk.
When you are totally free with something you've got, you've got time to have all of that. Let me give you another example.
You know, you're coming in this Masjid. And every week, every day, wherever you're coming this Masjid, you haven't got time to observe every little thing that's not right here. Yama time for that. But if this was a hospital, and it was a hospital bed here, and I stationed you in that hospital bed for one month, you're in the same place for one month, we're going to be doing when you look at this place,
you're going to observe every single part and you're going to find out every single thing that is wrong. In fact, you will probably memorize how many defects and exactly which place those defects are because you got nothing else to do.
Right? And this is the problem with the human being which allows Odell has mentioned in the in the Holy Quran, this is in Surah Surah Allah and 96 surah and Allah azza wa jal has said
in it number six and number seven, Allah says Kela in Al insana, layer pour of raw, Husqvarna, Allah says there's no other reason. But the human being exceeds my limits, exceeds my boundaries, starts to commit sins starts to disbelieve and starts to disobey me, I start to do things I've told him not to do. I've told her not to do our raw, who's gonna, when they feel they actually are so independent, they have so much freedom, they have so many blessings from me that they don't even need me.
When Allah azza wa jal gives the human being so many things, so many gifts and so on. And the human being actually feels independent from even wanting to have any necessity. And I've got so many things in my life, that I'm actually independent. I don't need anyone, I don't need other human beings. I don't need, you know, what are the extra blessings that God's gonna give me? Well, I've got enough Anyway, why do I need God? That's a big reason why the human being starts to exceed limits starts to create, you know, sauce to commit sins, as a huge reason why the human being feels that they don't even need God, because they've got too much freedom.
When you put a human being in all these laws, like, for example, you and me are not going to commit crimes outside there, because there's a law around us, that's going to take us to prison, take the cord, and then possibly prison. So people like us are going to be outside that Bank Group. Imagine there was a really, really, you know, high wealthy person who's got so much money or political power, that they can actually buy out the police, or they can bribe the judges, or they've got so much clout that you know, that they're a public figure, or a public star, that no one's ever going to talk about them in a band, take them down, even if they do talk about them. There are so many
connections with the political world, but they untouchable, you think they're going to be obeying the laws out there, they think they're going to be disobey them.
There's more chances they're going to disobey them. Right? That Mr. Jim will fix it remedy manageable fixing.
And Jim Savile? Jimmy Savile? Remember, you don't remember him? If you are, if you don't know by him, you can search by him, right? How many patients he abused, because he had that power. He had that he had the sense of total disregard for people because he's so independent, he's untouchable. When a human being in any way becomes untouchable, become someone who's not bound by rules, who's not bound by responsibility, who's not bound by certain laws and can't be taken to task, the human being will do whatever they want.
And one of the things is when the human being feels that I'm not going to be questioned in the ER, they don't, they don't actually, you know, they don't bring it in mind that I'm going to be questioned the Day of Judgment. I'm going to return on the day of judgment when the human being feels that you know what, I haven't even gotten that worry that I'm going to be questioned on the day of doesn't, I've got no worry about hell. I've got no worry about the answer. When that happens, the human being is capable of doing anything. absolutely anything.
That was one of the
worst things that human beings can have, which is total freedom or total independency from everyone else, or not having anything that binds him or binds, in terms of laws and in terms of responsibilities, they are capable of doing anything, and it's a real big danger to give human beings that much freedom. That is why Allah azza wa jal says, in the Holy Quran,
he says, and you gotta understand this, okay, I want you to understand the last no way is Allah azza wa jal evil in no way Does he ever oppress anyone, but a Lazarus has set it in how to put an insert number 90 and number four laqad Hala canal in Santa Fe Cabot, I have created the human being in turmoil, meaning that I've created the human being when the human being is out of one problem.
Slowly, slowly, slowly, he'll find himself with another problem to solve. It's not that every problem is a is a bad thing, no, allows a gel takes us from one problematic situation, let's say we got over that, and we solve that. And then we move on, he gives us some delight, and then slow down for a little while in namara laws to use law with every difficulty with every difficulty This is when the difficulty is gone, we find ease and then we fall into another difficulty. Why? Because allow them to give us another problem to solve. He wants you to be busy with a problem. And then we we do our best to get around the problem in life. And then we get on a problem. Well, we have some
delight, and Allah gives us relief. And then it puts us in another problem.
Another problem for us to solve.
Okay, why does Allah do this?
And one answer that from what I just said earlier on, why doesn't love do this?
something else? Why does the law keep on putting us like covered one problem you solve? It gives you some delighted another problem to solve another problematic situation life and then another partner says, Well, why did I do that?
was the last one I said, What's the last other seven I said?
Freedom so that the human being doesn't have what? Total independency from God, total freedom with no problems.
Because a human being that does that is going to become a real problem. They say it's in there, but it's slightly rewired. They say that you know for our, for our never suffered a headache in his life.
He was powerful. He was mighty. He was very healthy. He was rich, he was clever. He was intelligent. He had courage. He was blessed so much. He never even had a headache in his life.
So basically, he was like, kind of, you know, super sort of super independent in terms of his his nature, his character. And that's why fear around became around. film became one of the biggest violent biggest presses. You know, today's Well, you look at some of these big big presses. I'm not gonna say any names or bigger presses, you see it definitely exactly the same thing. They've got a lot of good health, a lot of wealth. They've got a lot of mind a lot of power, a lot of intellect into you know, intelligence, they've got a lot of clout, they've got a lot of dignity and all of that. bs allows give made them independent is given so much freedom to them, they end up doing what
they do, they end up becoming oppresses not every person like that will become like this, but many of the other you look at it, they become like that. So that's a human weakness. And a lot of that restricts us in this world for the reason that he doesn't want us to fall into place where we've got you know, we've got independency from God so quickly summarizing, the things that we said to the nature of the human being number one was
doubt is problem number two,
the whole the whole familiarity thing, Okay, number three
the Hayes would decide three was three was what
was three was love. If you say that the number four was the hastiness number five was
the logical reasoning in the and the unseen number six was
when when he receives gifts, what happens to him Okay, in terms of complaining or turning away from God, but the worst one number seven is when Allah gives too much freedom too much independency that human being is totally lost. And Allah has explained that in whole Quran today's theme was to understand the human being from the Quran. The next week, what we'll do is we'll understand that Allah azza wa jal, and how he wants to make that loop the creation, join back up with the Holic, the creator. Are there any questions that you have for today? This session? Yes.
For this, the sixth one was the one that we know when they're receiving the gifts and they that the nature of complaining and so on.
Okay, well, I'll explain that in a bit. But let me just say any questions that are related to the subject matter.
Today's subject that we discussed the chronic themes or the human being. anyone got any questions on what I've said today? Yes.
Come from the doubt. Yeah.
Okay, good. That is a you know that that question you said in 10 seconds,
but the answer is going to take way more than 10 minutes, probably an hour or whatever. So, I can't answer that one right now, but in short, another session, we can deal with this right.
Yeah. Because each each doubt requires a different answer. Each type of that has to be examined independently and inshallah when we get to some, some other parts inshallah we'll we'll try and get to that. But just to answer that brothers question was nobody else's questions on the actual theme itself? Yes.
My intent again, that's not related to the subject matter. So when I click the answer the brothers question, the, when Allah is with us, say seven people that are dead or alive, they are the Shahada, okay, and what it means is that they are not like ordinary dead people, ordinary dead people, if you were to dig up the graves, you will see that there's probably bones there and the deteriorating, but the Shahada, the body will remain completely intact in the graves as one second is a loss without gives them a special place in the era, where he puts their souls into green beds and those green beds roam around Ghana and even go and sit on one of the corners of Allah and throne. And they are
given a special roaming and a special way of being gifted Allah and Allah says he provides them as well. Normal souls that have died, even if they go to the heavens, they're in a different place in alien Alam makes these souls go beyond the illusion so they've got a much better life than others. So he refers to them as done no, don't say they're dead. They're alive as in they're roaming around the data. Okay, so let's leave you there inshallah. They are done. We'll go in the set right now. And inshallah next week after a month, we will see you again with another part of the series because my fellow Santa Monica,
