We now reach the final goodbye. The closing declaration by Allah subhanaw taala at the end of serwotka,
which is a very, very powerful message.
Again, touching the theme of eschatology, how can you be paying attention and remembering this big word is cryptology means the study of this and what comes after the study of the year after. So one of the major themes in the parameter Allah speaks about the accuracy. And this relates to everything from
the signs of our own deaths that we call kiama. To silver on the smoking are actual death and the processes that take place. What happens after we die, the covered the resurrection, the Judgment Day, everything related to the Judgment Day, and then Jen and Jen, all of that forms part of eschatology. Now, we've elaborated on this before, but since this is the last class as a point of revision,
what we generally find in this theme, is Allah Subhana. Allah giving us encouragement, and giving us discouragement, encouragement, in that he promises as a reward for those who do good. Jana, for those who do good, glad tidings for those who do good for those who believe that you remember that was one of the key elements.
And then the strong discouragement to dissuasion is by giving you severe picturesque descriptions of punishment, because that's the reality.
And when we looked at what the function of these
elements of why would Allah bring this about in the Quran? You know, why would only speak about faces being melted and so forth? like we saw in Soraka?
It's very strong messages, is it because we need to be doom and gloom all the time, preach fire and brimstone, Satan with Jana, we immediately saw that as opposed to our own human approaches. The approach of Allah is that there's always a balance. There's always a balance and we'll see it again now in the final address. So right at the beginning, we see what are up now Johanna, so that of course, is obvious it speaks about punishment this week. So Jana, if you go a few verses down
to verse number
107 it starts in alladhina amanu, Aminu Sony hack. So now we you can already see the bandits without even having to touch on the verses yet, Allah speaks in those few verses about Johanna the severe punishment that certain people will get, and then balances it out by speaking about those who believe we all need to remember that this isn't once of in the Quran. This is every single occasion when Allah speaks about the laughter.
Now, what should that say to us, as believers, as people who have been given the poor and mean to recite the Quran and mean to understand the poor and daily?
What's that? What is that going to do to someone? This is this is conditioning, this, this becomes part of your psyche, because part of who you are this balance that is stuck. This is a game we will always be playing catch up. This was our situation is concerned.
One person united scene recordings are to these classes every week, and one person comments often, and I always read the comments and I'll always respond, we'll always have time to respond. But one of the comments I found interesting, because it was representative of, of an of an idea that people have a lot of people have. So he says, you know, because I've always encouraged that we should learn Arabic. And he says, you know, in our communities in the Muslim Ummah, Islam is growing Islam has been fine. People didn't understand Arabic, it was okay.
And there is a growing trend among certain groups of intellectuals to say that, you know, we shouldn't Arabic sighs Islam, Southern Arabic religion, it's universal religion. So I think that the conflicting a number of issues. On the one hand Alhamdulillah Yes, the community has survived. We have strong etc 300 year old community. But that doesn't mean that everything we do in we doing it right. Right. It doesn't mean that we have successful around. Yes, I mean, I've got a strong culture, but at the same time, we have a lot of pitfalls.
And it doesn't mean that just because the survival that the strength or that is progress, okay? We can't just take one perspective and say, well, because of that one thing that must be that this community is brilliant. Yes, 100%, the capetonian with a cape Muslim community is a very good example of a Muslim minority, really exceptional example, still doesn't mean that it's perfection or even close to perfection.
The other thing that is kind of conflated is the idea that by learning Arabic, we making it an an Arab revision, it's two completely different things. Being an Arab being of the Arabian culture is one thing. And then there's the Arabic language, which is a different thing. And whilst the two meet, often because of its origin, it doesn't necessarily mean that we have to take the whole package, the core and makes itself very clear that Allah chose to reveal the Quran in Arabic, there's no, there's no getting around that. And
everyone should read the translation. But it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the moment you translate a text, or any speech, it loses something, it loses its beauty. Because it's only going to have a specific beauty in its original language. Try translating Shakespeare and Afrikaans as an example. That might make sense, but it's not going to sound the same as I'm going to feel the same. And in addition to losing its beauty, it's also going to lose nuances of meaning. And I use this class example always leads the point, come, jack, come here, come jack conflict in Afrikaans, that's two very distinct sentences, and jack is completely different. If you translate it into English,
it's going to be the same thing, can jack come and eat and you'll have no way of knowing that jack is human and animal. Right? So you mentioned the word of a lot, I think the duck with all of the Arabic language allows for the homeland to have miracles of a different category altogether, you miracle miracles, and, you know, miracles that are
to do with the letters and the way they are constructed, etc. So we have to learn Arabic, we have to strive to learn Arabic, that doesn't mean that we are saying become Saudi. You understand? And this is where people sort of conflict, the issues, because they're looking at the atoms in the same No, these are not good examples for us. And then they think that that means Arabic is bad, you know? So I think that yes, we should always strive to learn the Arabic language. And why did all this come up?
Because we are missing out severely as an Alma we are missing out and it's actually crazy how much and honestly I just think about it for a second we stand and we pray and then we recite in dentistry radomes that the Guide us to the straight path. So we are asking Allah for guidance. And we are asking for guidance, because he commanded us to ask for guidance
of all the doors that could have been placed. In fact he had the door and a lot of places days what
guidance in the straight path because we will always need guidance. Allah created us in through our very nature as human beings. We will always be searching, always be inquisitive, you'll always be exploring, you'll always be seeking always be thirsty for knowledge. So we will need guidance, otherwise, we're going to do our own consider.
And that guidance, that guidance that Allah is speaking about has to come from a divine source first.
All knowledge is good or good knowledge is good, I should say that.
But you can't replace divine knowledge in a Siracusa guide as to the straight path
and then the core and tells you exactly where to find that guidance.
The very next rule begins and there's no coincidence in this. Eddie Fleming Danny Kalki Deborah Murphy who deal with the pain it is a guidance with our conscious. So every time we sanctify the hand and then we say I mean and then immediately after me then I'm like, is that guidance that you asked for? Like tonight? We decided either associated abuses
right and then in the second regard, was paying attention. What did we decide?
Now they're gonna be fed up in those who are there is guidance. You may have been experiencing something whether you know it or not. Well, that was a bit I will finance
I see Rob of Daybreak Misha from the evil and he created
from the evil of the darkness waiting tokens
because that's on my mind is thinking about darkness
that sort of came into my mind this differently, something to do with darkness correlating to evil. And then we got some guidance from the Quran.
I know, it seems funny if you think that this joke is a joke, but this this guidance in anyways, the point being, we should familiarize ourselves with Arabic. So I don't say it enough. I said a lot. But I don't say it enough. Strive to learn Arabic. And if you feel you've reached the point in your life, we maybe have missed that boat. Okay, fine, do your best. Don't, you know, I couldn't tell you everything. So I left everything to your face. But make sure you give that gift to the next generation, and to the next generation. Because we should we can only grow stronger as
the Sahaba they transformed the lives and they transformed the world. And the source of the transformation was first and foremost, the Book of Allah.
If we add the science that we know of, was as a result of that.
If you add the science that we know of now in terms of Islamic sciences, came as a result of the love and affinity with the book of Allah and the teachings of the book of Allah by Allah His Messenger today, salat wa salam. So
back to the point, we will recite these verses, day in, day out year in, year out.
And it's beautiful, and we'll get rewarded for it, and we Baraka in it.
But the backstops the
you know what the difference is to sit in a in a ticket on a Thursday night. And people are deciding Salomon Cola, Rocky, Rocky. And they decided three times just because that's what they what they heard, and they just can't deal with it. Right, we've discussed this in class. But the point is,
just to recite it in that way is one thing, as opposed to the person who's who's understanding that this is when you enter into gender and Allah greets you. And it's such a profound verse that your move to recite it again and again and again and again. And again. That's a bit different case. So it's absolutely imperative for us in the in the world of distractions that you are living in, to have a grounding and grounding is the origin of grounding is the forehand.
It's unbelievable how much distraction we have around us and it's not going to get any less light. So we have to be grounded and our grounding should be the core of when we understand the coroner when we stand in Sala and we understand the Quran is recited and we understand when we recite and we understand what we are reciting.
It goes into you,
it becomes part of you. It changes the way you think it changes the way you see things it changes the way you handle situations.
I'm not say overnight, you become you become Missoni hain, right. But it becomes ingrained within your persona.
So if the time we year versus of Jana, it will have an effect on us.
And at the same time with its benefits that the verses of Gemini will have an effect on us. And what was the effect the desired effect that we spoke about? It's always motivation is always motivation.
Right. And there's a lot of psychologists have explored this over the years, right.
That motivation is to seek out pleasure and to to flee from home.
This is this is ingrained in the finance system, fleeing from home and a loved one says to flee from home in the army. He wants us to free from his Johanna, he does not want us to go to Japan. And and we will be better human beings. When we live to avoid Japan, we think you will live to seek out gentlemen. It's not all about China, China, China, China. But those are the motivating factors to make us better human beings. I hope all of this is making sense. So every year these verses understand it's not so that we can become mobile.
The Quran is just about punishment, the terrible punishment and so forth is a beautiful balance. And it has to be seen in light of that inspiration. That Alliance was so called a loved one soldier
Number one interest in five will equal larina cafaro. Big Robin?
no Johanna was number 100.
Johanna yoma it cafe de Navidad. So the very first the previous verse that we just covered last week was how Yeah, George and george will be coming out. Yeah movie about Barack Obama movie bar, they would be flowing into each other like giant waves. Right? See this picture this image at this, this this issue that Allah gives us is that they're in such huge numbers. Now we know based on Hanif that this is very close to the actual kiama very close to the rate of karma. There's a whole system that goes through the bear Isa and and the followers you know, taking refuge somewhere in the mouths of the hiding away. Yeah, Jewish Americans are taking over complete destruction. No one can just do it.
Alone Vincent's a disease, some form of disease. And the Hadees mentioned the flixton in the mix, they all die. This is the stench of rotting corpses, pedigree he gets carried away by all this data from some natural phenomenon. And then the believers come down. They live for the time period of about 40 years in complete peace and harmony with is absolutely no
trouble. There's no injustice, there's no oppression, anything, just the complete utopia in that time period. And in vain for the
Olympics, a wind that gently kills everyone sounds funny, but in some way or the other. When cars die like a big mistake. All the believers are gone. And gamma cameras. So this is very, very close to the piano. So then, after we see this verse, Allah says, Wow, and so it's like skip a few. And now we in front of john now villa.
We present we have presented Jana on that day, yo Martini, live Katharina. So the disbelievers our goal, as a presentation. As a presentation, they'll be looking at it to their own eyes to be right before that.
You know who feel a tie in and victory.
Very scary for us. But listen, listen to the words and Latina those who can that are you know whom the eyes used to be Fiorito in environments, the eyes are captured,
and victory from my remembrance. The eyes would cover it from my remembrance, they were blinded to the remembrance of Allah.
The holodeck with a La Villa, why can no lie is not to NASA. And they were unable to hear they were unable to get. Now just a few moments ago, I made a very specific reference to the fact that we're living in a world full with distractions.
And I mentioned that because this verse alludes to the same thing. Now, we must say from the outset that Allah himself says the caffine, right. And the primary meaning the No one can deny is that the stiffest those who believe in Allah COVID do not believe in God, as they should be the God. That's the time remaining. But
it's not difficult to see how this applies to so many more than just the disbelievers
we are living in in an age where everything around us is designed to make us blind and deaf, to serious issues, all anonymous.
people can be dying, going hungry.
You know, I say to my colleague, once I say who we are living in a time, where if tonight, if tonight, they should destroy magical upside, like burn it to the ground. Tomorrow, we will have a protest.
And then the next day, we will go back to life as as was before. And we'll be speaking about how to do that. As an example. You can think of much bigger examples, because we are constantly being intoxicated by the the factors around us being kept busy with Netflix and movies and music and entertainment and living the life. So we've so focused on our own little Atlas of life, that Malaysia things that are in us become in
Significant, right? We, I mean, look at just our very own country, things happen around us. And we just feel like, you know, there's nothing we can do about it, we carry on, we speak about it on Facebook and talk about tough things. And that's about it, that whether we, our president steals money and builds a swimming pool or with, you know, crazy stuff happens around us all the time. But we simply just are in a situation, I was thinking about all of us now, as a people,
we will just have an outcry for a little bit, and then things will just go back to normal again, gender based violence, the place in the world where women get raped and murdered, children get raped and murdered more than anywhere else in the world. And we have like a few weeks of
protest, and then we just go back to normal. So I feel sorry for him or incomplete
variables behind it to the realities around us. But in our mentions, and victory, from my influence. Now, you can take this in the in the Indian as a vicar way, like, people are blind, always naked. And somebody who's really passionate about gatherings of liquor making me see that. And I'll say, See, you must make more thicker because it says this. But yeah, it's very clear that cricket is much more universal than just the same thing. A few words have a lot less behind the law. I'm not belittling that. But this is much more universal than that. You're always talking about being blind and being deaf to realities around us. If you're not aware of Allah. This is teaching us that sin
being God conscious through being acutely aware of God's existence and not living for your own existence only.
Not being entrapped by capitalism, by materialism, or by being until a million other isms out there billions and billions of isms, that you're looking for a higher purpose to understand the temporal nature of this life. Only then will you be able to prioritize things in your life. And you won't be things topsy turvy.
Because the opposite of Vicar, what's the opposite of the curse? In Arabic?
ruffler you're either in a state of vigor or you're in the state of Alaska, one of the two, there's no third option. Being in a state of victory means being conscious, being away, being present of mind. And so you're not
monotone Samson says this nicely kosamba dies.
You know, as long as you you know, what's, what's going on. That's been a state of decay. And being in a state of hoffler.
is we you just, you just need the emotions.
You are tilted and I will like I've raised myself,
there, we can be very judgmental, but I raised myself and how clued up people can be about things like the lives of celebrities, like who's married to who? And how many kids and, you know, and what, what price was paid for a certain player to a certain club and like,
information, do you think like, How on earth? Do you have capacity for this rubbish? You know, but people can't help it. So we can't be judgmental and thinking that they are bad people. We are living in a system like that. Everything around us is designed to make us know these things. You just open up your phone,
you know, and then the ego is right in your face. With it be through Facebook or WhatsApp or Instagram or Twitter or any other social media platform. You switch on your TV. No, you really have to be living in the dark to not be aware of any of these things. So we live in a world we are not allowed to be in a state of decay. And then they get us to pay hundreds of 1000s of revenues
to put us in a state of decay. So you pay for a calm app. Right? On this meditation app.
Masada, the meditation accidents always popping up in your name.
Anyways, to make up for for a state of Vicar, to make you pay to learn about mindfulness, mindfulness, is it like a very awesome translation for the word thinker
in the state of mindfulness, what is mindfulness when you are present in the moment
awareness of the braces. That's it. That's because we've got that for free for forever. And now they're making people pay for it. And it's a phenomenon, like Ted Talks about it. Wow, mindfulness is amazing. Panama,
our tells us, you have a choice, you either going to be in a state of decay, or you're going to be from among those whose eyes are blinded, that cannot be.
Right. And sometimes we see little microcosms of this happening in our own homes. And I'm sure you've had experiences of your kids being so glued to the screen, that you call the baby standing right next thing you go get in the middle, yeah, you someone,
they don't hear you, they don't see you a bomb can go places and they wouldn't be aware of it. This is just a small little example of bubble of the greater scheme of things. That just becomes more and more advanced, that from the from the cooking show that they watch, it moves on and progresses to become the big screen, the front, the big screen, the big screen, even the small screen goes to the unit to the bank account when they open it up on the laptop screen. And then from there, it just goes on, never stops.
We can't live like that. Now, I think I have this theory that we as Muslims, we participate
innocently, with the imagination that we are not affected. We just we just like on Lucas,
it doesn't really bother us. It doesn't really bother our family because we've got Islam. So Islam, inoculate us against all the evil. So we just we just take him for, you know, we get affected.
We not super human beings, what affects the world affects us. And I, we get desensitized to the things we assimilate into society we seek to fit in, it does affect us, whether we like it and it affects me It affects you. That's really that's and
just then to kind of justify it
in any way. As an OIG, it's either you need to take serious steps, or you must acknowledge the fact that you you're being affected by the system for hassy bernadina cafaro, to those who disbelieved think, a yet or a birdie mean dooney earlier that they can take besides me, besides me, that they can take God's from among my servants. And this is clear cut.
This is we humans take either humans, or immigration Allah as gods, whether that's the cow, or whether that's the son of meaning, and they said to us, or any other be.
So Allah makes a clear statement. How can people possibly take Gods other than God?
But these subtleties within this, we should all be conscious of also. So that's the Khufu one. If you go listen, then do we place our
trust out the Huangpu that belongs only to Allah to replace it and other than Allah.
That's something that we should ask ourselves. And I think it's something we can all slip into every now and then it's not COVID it's not at the level of confidence because you're worshiping that other thing, but it's tantamount to stretching the comfort when your reliance is no longer on Allah but a new bank account. No longer a lot but a new job. No longer a new boss. No longer Allah but a new family no longer on the bank on the on your mother home your own on the coil track. This is when we take Olia we do Neela speaking about the other audiology spoke about before, this is the front
dangerous grounds as well.
In Atlanta, Georgia. Indeed we have to pay john Luke Katharina for the disbelievers in this this next word, and I find it so interesting. It only uses this word Newsela
was the translation of New Zealand
Listen to an overseas we have indeed prepaid jahannam for the disbelievers as entertainment
critic that's it's very
sad. I disagree with all that we can do
I'm not going to sit here and say, listen, stop everything. Don't listen to the Navy to
you know, don't watch anything on the screen as
you can manage to escape this completely in society use some kind of warning. In fact, I think you are the one of the only
way we can not be
required, as believe is being caused by what's out there.
You know, something as simple as binge watching is a new thing.
Do we understand that it's a new thing? So
like when I was growing up, if you were watching a particular TV show, it's it comes up on a Monday night, right? When the next time you get to watch that show, is next Monday. There's no there's no ways around. There
is no other option. Now, if you watch a particular TV show,
How many of us actually wait till the next time? No, we get someone to download it. We binge watch Netflix, and all of it sitting here. What is the goal right through all weekend?
as bad content, but the point is, it takes you out the mistake of being vegan of being vegan. And some people have been argued with no, we have to put you in a state of fear.
But I'm sure you understand what I'm saying. Over uses the word Newsela. Right. We have prepaid for the disbelievers. Johanna has an independent. It's like this irony that you you were distracted from me in the dunya through entertainment. Entertainment, Allah protect us.
One of the signs of chiama one of the minor signs of karma
was probably only basically explained in the last 50 to 100 years. The profitsystem spoke about when the days of when the Day of Judgment cameras, that the fit that all this bad things we see in society will come forth and be presented to the oma Odin Odin. And that would ruin them
means in lines in lines that go vertically and horizontally, so it actually means it could be presented on a map. So how does one make sense of that is entered on this vertical lines. So now the scholars have all kind of navigate towards interpretation and this is referring to the screen because the screen is made up of these pixels that have vertical and horizontal because that's the only way you can make sense that it will be presented on the on this map this flat thing that goes around in order
based practice just an interpretation.

Setting goals, investing time investing effort investing money towards this effort. Everyone has this. Every human being either hazard is looking for it or hide it once upon a time. But we all have this, this our own personal jihad, our own personal struggle in life. What is yours?
And what if your struggle has actually been nothing but loss.
And you thought all the time that it is a really good investment.
That's what is being described here. Now, needless to say,
a very sad outcome. And we begin engraved on love to save us from such an outcome. If your whole life goes into something that you thought was great
means that it is the worst possible thing you could be doing.
And before we think, Okay, what if that's me? We have to understand that primarily, this is referring to the kuffar because overseas EU law in Canada in a Kaffir movie is European. Those are the ones disbelief in the signs of the load, one a Paul II and the disbelief in meeting him for Habitat home so the deeds become null and void.
Find that no be more loving Yeoman PM, it was not so we will not establish skills within within meaning they will be nothing only booties on the side of the good teeth on the depth judgment. This is one of the most difficult things for many people to accept.
I'm going to try as best as possible to relate this in, in the in the way that it is meant to be understood.
Understand, Allah is the only one
who knows who is a believer, it was a cafe.
I hope it's pretty clear. If we stole from among those people who think we can decide who's a multi million user, caffeine will be going crazy. We can only judge by what is apparent. We can only judge by what is a ballot.
We've gone for example, say that so and so died is a counterfeit, unless there is evidence of that. We can say we don't know that he that is unique to him. But we don't know. It's take a key figure like the the former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, we have no clue in what state he died.
We only know that he can live as a Muslim. We don't know of him taking Shahada. But we don't know what happens. If we die. Only Allah knows that only a level of able to judge him from the dead camera. So that same goes the whole debate with regards to Mother Teresa, and everybody in that category. Because I know people have long discussions about this. How can this believe is all go to gentlemen, and believe it or go to gender, but you get such bad believers? Right.
So having said that, that's a purely theological Christian, having said that,
we now get into
the conundrum of How valuable is one thing to
understand that we only know the dunya we don't know the Astrodome, we don't know the walls of the unseen and enthusiasms. All of the people that are mentioned and who you probably thought about when I was saying these things, they are all heroes in the dunya. And they deserve the highest degrees of respect in the dunya.
The hero is not our domain.
Okay, so we don't need to play God when it comes to Iran.
Unless it's the rules, and we simply follow.
I have an example that I like to use to kind of make people understand this this rule that sometimes doesn't make sense.
How is it that the believer who's a murderer, rapist, thief, con man, corrupt politician, you name it all the bad stuff in this one person, but he's a Muslim. That person will eventually go to gentlemen, but the one was a reviewer who spent the entire life apparently in charity, uplifting the plight of for the moving operation.
diensten injustice, that person, according to local ad will never go to jail. Two Gentlemen, will you manage and run forever. So we already saved the Acura is not adequate, we don't make the rules. But listen to this example.
Save a father
willing landmass. And we'll add that along with the resolvers. This is by far our understanding. If a father leaves, he's going to take the children in a house that will pretty young, you know, and it gives them the skills that they need. It gives them the provisions that the hill and he leaves, he says, Listen, you're on households,
young, young, young middle schools.
You have to do the dishes, you have to wash the car, you have to sweep the yard, oh, bunch of stuff. You're not allowed to have any parties. You're not allowed to drink and
smoke and a whole bunch of Stephanie as well. So it gives them do's and don'ts. But over and above all the do's and don'ts as the Father uses them.
The one primary rule is this.
I am your father
who come on Coca Cola, Darth Vader.
And I will always be a father. And you don't ever reject me as your father.
Right? That's the main I
don't think anyone else is your fault. Because I'm the one who raised you brought you to this world.
Thank you. 20 years down the line, he comes back and he says listen, what's up what's happening with me, it may give rewards to those what they were supposed to do. He comes with Ferraris, and Lamborghinis, he's gonna
reward them accordingly. Who did the dishes? Who did this? Who did that? Who didn't do this? Who didn't do that.
So among them is going to be those who did some stuff did a lot of stuff. Mine was going to be those who were just absolute idiots lazy, sitting around sleeping all day long doing nothing.
And they'll give the rewards accordingly.
But if somebody comes forward, and they say to that, Father,
I did everything that you said I was doing. And I stayed away from everything that you say. In fact, I took charge a review, and yet I make life better for them at the base here, but you
You're not my fault.
You wouldn't hear from me.
Don't come try to be part of my life. And I'm not interested in you.
Now, again, follow me along with the best of examples. But imagine yourself.
In that situation, you know that peeling trigger
doesn't matter. When could that person
wash the dishes sweep through your mouth alone drags the entire this day into that you have other delinquent son sitting in the corner a quote on the world of nonsense.
But the one thing he never did was rejected us.
We have examples like this in our community, how many delinquent kids are
loving them back to the path of justice and truth in life.
And parents, you know, other people can't understand how you're treating this child in your home. I've seen this in my own eyes, the son steals his feelings behind them to lock up the cable and the toaster in the bedroom at night. Because if they leave it in the kitchen, by the morning it will be gone sold for drugs for the chance to remain in the home.
Then you just stay over there for a couple hours. And you see why. The one thing that job didn't lose at least most instances, because they think buying face you see sounds Beaten Off records. They still can be mommies and Daddy, you know 1700 for me, Canada, and Red Wings that means hot every time. So that the dunia and for our belongs the astronaut we are not to play judge in the app here on your luggage on yoga knows, he sets the rules. And he said these rules. And he said it doesn't matter what you come with. It doesn't matter what good deeds you think you did. I set the rules. And the first rule is did you need me alone? Describe no partners with me. After that, now we can
I hope that provides some clarity. And then we have a theme to these debates. Because it's the worst possible thing that we can do. It's like we're trying to justify all those rules for the world. If the world wants to come to terms with all those rules, they come to terms on the on the host
Do them speak to let them engage with Allah. We don't have to justify all those rules to publication.
That's the position of
knowledge and these scholarly consensus, because it's absolutely clear.
And over and over learners based, then he catches, Johanna very compaines won't be Johanna. lopatic This Be more careful because they disbelieved. Wonderful do it. And because they took my vs my science was to be and my messengers whose work as a joke
in London Hina Ave Kwame lusardi had, but Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds along Madonna, we know that Allah make us of those.
Something that I wish to point out, again, is that this is always the combination, right? This is the combination in an arena. I'm sorry, I'm not talking about gender, gender, and gender. Sorry, jahannam. and gentlemen, not that combination. Now, just in this one statement. In the Nina ama know, why don't we do soil you have when only speaks about relievers, individus speaks about the belief.
That is what some of the other religions did. They change the faith, they tie in faith into nothing but faith.
So I have a good fortune of engaging with many other religions. I have a friend who's a priest. And I asked him because I thought reading is not enough. And I asked him, if somebody never goes to church. They never obey the rules that that tries to live by in his lifetime.
They just live life according to what they think is good, what they think is bad. That's exceptionally bad people, but they do. They do okay. They never go to church. They don't even go on a Christmas Day.
But they believe that Jesus died for a sentence.
Is that person going to heaven? And the answer is yes.
Because all you need is faith.
I'm sure you're not going to get the same answer from all of them. But this is the answer you gave me.
as Muslims, you can ever believe that.
We know that from effect. Faith is necessary, but it's not sufficient. You can still go to hell as a believer. You can. This is why Allah always mentioned him, then let me know what I'm going to solve. Now we need to be careful that we turn our faith into nothing better faith, so long as you Muslim, Muslim name. You make Muslim sometimes you go to the vicar other times in your life. Because you're Muslim. You don't need to live as a Muslim. You don't need to practice the laws of Islam. No, that's all just experience. You just need faith. Like we know different. We know different it's belief. And I just need in the Medina Amman, woman. Oh, sorry. Hi, Garrett 11 Jana to fill those in Missoula.
They will have Jana gardens and fear dose of paradise. Newsela is that word again, as entertainment.
the difficulty lies in
sacrificing the unlawful pleasures of this world
so that we can attain the eternal pleasures of the next world.
The key for us is to sacrifice the unlawful pleasures of this world so that we maintain the eternal pleasures of the next world.
It's not that we need to learn more privilege or there's nothing that we can do. That's fun is a lot of fun things that we can do. I think I recall we had a series on that. While back Joomla the number of advisors in the life How do you have fun as a person? Because it was certainly
if he said it was a way of life David must include
fun must include recreation, pastimes and fun. And everybody's differences as they have a plethora of ways in which can fit right? Yes, it was in this class because I studied with michael savage son asked about games.
Right? And I said play games. Good games and not the
ugly stuff it was you want to play games and your Xbox and PlayStation four. And it's
by all means play games. What What Can somebody say about playing the game don't become so intoxicated by the judicial state of hoffler.
But you need to have some sort of Hello pasta.
It's the unlawful ones that we need to avoid the sex, drugs and rock and roll in the in the unlawful way that is generally understood. That's the one that we need to sacrifice to get gentlemen that will fit those into that quality that we have, they will be there in forever
liahona in Africa, they wouldn't even want to get out of it. Now, I found this statement, your last statement very interesting.
Why would I need to say this? Please always ask that question. Don't be scared to ask that question. Right? As long as you have somebody who can answer it for you. But don't be scared to ask why would I have to say this? Like, it doesn't seem necessary for me? always asking because there's always a good answer. Because all it doesn't speak in vain. Well, it doesn't just say stuff for the sake of saying stuff. So alchemy says this, why does all the need to say they will not want the lie above when they will not see and have found it
to be removed? Is it obvious? If you go into gentlemen, you wouldn't want to be removed?
Why would you need to add in the extra statement that you wouldn't want to be removed. So we learned in economics, we learned a principle called the diminishing low cost is Law of Diminishing Marginal Utility, that the nature of pleasure is that you don't always get the same amount.
She'd go home tonight, and it's nice and hot. So you take out a tub of ice cream. I'm challenging, you know, take either two or five liter damn ice cream, and you start eating it nice, the big dessert spoons. The first bite, like you feel like your mouth is watering right now. It comes with awesome pleasure.
The second bite, you might not notice it, but it's slightly less than the first. Continue, see how long you can go on for
eventually get to a point where you close the back voluntarily and you put it back.
And if you go past that point, see a doctor number to indicate the second back, you will get to the point where you can't anymore. And if you go past that point.
So this is basically in a nutshell, questions no diminishing marginal utility. It's just a description of the way we function as human beings. You don't always
it's not always the same. It's only fun the first time let's find the first couple of times our minds has to know the agenda is not subject to that law.
It will never get boring.
It will always be like the first time it will always be mind blowing amazing.
And to make you understand that he says you will not seek to get out of it. You will not seek any exchange.
Because any other form of pleasure, eventually just not be pleasurable anymore. How long you engender 400 years? 200 years? 1000 years? millennials billion years.
India's can be gone. I don't know what comes after that. A quadrillion years.
After quadrillion years and Jana will come out to meet each other insha Allah, He will say, hey, I want to be here. And you will say Sony been a quadrillion years? How long still to go. Eternity.
It's beyond our imagination. So imagine for eternity, you'll never get bored.
You'll never get tired. It'll never be boring. I often say to to the youth Don't be New Year of China. And then you see like gardens rivers flowing beneath and I don't like gardens. I've Lupita kirstenbosch Gardens I've been doing that all my life. Why would I like gardens. Understand that locker speaks according to what the audience understands. And the audience the primary recipients of this message understood paradise to be gardens, revels, shade, please fruits. That's not your idea of gender, then
it's something that no is enough.
Imagine if your agenda is for the technology feed go to matrix no problem. That's your agenda. And Olin was based on say to the normal formatos locanto bathroom the data is the oceans with a weak demand therapy to write down
the words of my god like NASA and the oceans would be depleted. Kabul and Telefonica a matter of be before the words of
I go to be depleted. What am I gonna be Miss Lee muda, even if you were to replace the oceans within.
while I can attest to this, and I'm sure you can attest to this as well, you will never be able to exhaust the corner. It's 1400 years since its revelation.
They are more definite See, contribution today than ever before, isn't hundreds and 1000s of volumes of Tafseer works, and even time another scholars gonna write another one from a different perspective with a different take with more insight. And the more science progresses, the more we discover and then we see it with go inside and in different other sciences again, and it will always be like that.
Because it's a non human, it's divine sense that the Mohammed soul lie they send them in an ambition. I am only a human being mythical, just like you. You have a lay. That is why he was given to me. Revelation was given to me, Mohammed, awesome. Anima Illa hukum Illa won't work in June.
I love this verse, because it brings the simplicity of Islam back into perspective of the everything. Understand that the why the essential element of the washing the one message that is the take home message, the one message in our lives has revolved around is this one that you God is one God.
That's it simple. Keep it simple, right? I don't I really don't like it. When we overcomplicate dealing with a whole bunch of other stuff, that's not part of the
other one. And I don't mind because people kind of like it, and it brings him closer to Dean. But on the other hand, I feel all of this stuff just complicated, because now we get the impression that it's part of the will, it's actually just culture. And then we get the impetus of Okay, we must do this, you must do that. And you must do this, and you can't do that. And then it makes it so much more complicated. It's actually really simple. So I struggled, personally, I struggle, I don't know where that balance is. And because it's not the clear cap thing.
It's it's a difficult thing to navigate.
Just keeping deals simple, do what you must stay away from what you must live, this should not collapse that the I think you have so much culture that it's added to it. And it's nice and feels good and it tastes good and also some part of the culture. So what do you do, a lot of
people have different approaches to that. Some full hook line and sinker take the whole thing is no culture whatsoever. So it's very difficult to divide.
Someone can ever truly be. So the instruction, you got the principle the principle is your load is one thing instruction is as follows from Anka, Jamba Juice, Nicole,
so whomsoever has now
to meet Allah, why should translated differently whosoever has who is hopeful to meet Allah.
We can all claim to be hoping to meet online and we won't meet online. So that's kind of a fruitless but to be hopeful in a meeting of a law that
say, every person the good and the bad, that all we know, we can meet.
But is everyone hopeful? In that
that's something we asked ourselves if we want to be hopeful in our meeting with our law, if we want to live lively by your line and on this page, and we are not scale,
and the tears are only gonna cheeks not because we are afraid but because we are happy that we finally meet Allah, Allah grant us that may Allah grant all of us that no children will not be from among those who receive bad news from the doctor, for example, you only got so many we still have so many months to them, and we become terrified because we know that we are going to meet the wrong lm Samus with that. If we want to be hopeful have a meeting with a law firm the our men our men in society have the lifting do righteous deeds,
while are usually very bad at therapy, either, and if they never make shift in the worship, or in the servitude, of the load.
The most complete
hints of instruction that you can possibly find a instructional way of saying Laila in law in one line, who's ever wants to be hopeful to meet Allah and be successful in the era, you need these two things.
It's actually saved.
The primary thing Second, you need to number one, never make sheep, blah, blah,
blah. And number two, do righteous deeds, and the position of righteous deeds is stay away from and elaborate with it. Do what Allah made compulsory, and learn life as best as you can, according to the principles, and in that way you will be successful, and then the day you meet a lot will be the most awful day of your life. The best day of your life was exciting that was granted to all of us.

is, is distributed to everyone and everything from the beginning of time till the end of time into every single species.
That's in one portion. He also said it includes the mercy that a mother shows to a cup, like a lion is mostly the managers look up and the mercy of any mother to a baby for example, and it includes most of the speakers. The other 99 portions, which is represented by refaim is reserved for the PD visit a after. So that's the Edit explanation they
