Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
we lift off ending this story.
We ended the story of the owner of the two gardens.
we had the hook by the author.
And we learned
quite a few lessons from the incidents of the man with the two gardens. Allah Subhana Allah is now introducing
us in a hood by an address, hood by means an address. They often and we stopped by speaking about wealth in children, and how that is the adornments of the world of this worldly life. But while baggy and the Sony had the remnants of righteousness is greater, both in terms of reward as well as in terms of return. So we have to have hopes more in that than we do in our own wealth and in our children. Now, Allah Subhana Medina speaks about
something that looks like a complete change of subject. Allah will administrate on the regime, or Yeoman will say you will develop what are our results now home Fallon Nevada mean home
And what's hidden is and remember a day when you say you will jiba we will move the mountains
what the hell out of our batteries and you will see the earth completely leveled.
washout now home and we will gather all of them. For them know what they mean? Oh, I had no one will be neglected, no one will be left behind.
So all of us know that this is referring to the day off the AMA, okay. So look at the imagery that Allah uses in the Quran to describe tm. It's always very picturesque, the language that's the output and whenever Allah speaks about tiama vivid imagery, even in the song that we recited, in Maori, Allah Korea, tamale Korea, but this one, oh, this is the day we will move the mountains, now mountains, psychologically, they have an effect on us. It has an effect on us that we don't take note of it and realize until you enter into a region where there are no mountains. So a person in Cape Town doesn't really take note of the mountains much but when you move to Japan as well, all of
a sudden you miss the mountains. Mountains in our psyche represent something that is stability is nothing you can think of quickly, that stronger than mightier than a mountain in a physical object. But we always thinks about kiama he often introduces the AMA, with the advent of the moving of the mountains, and uses various images to put rayless like
yo Mehta, Kunal g Ballew, can I email manforce
the day when mountains will be blown away, like cotton, cotton wool, cotton roll in your hands and your beloved. She's gone. It's disappeared. That's one of the images that he uses. Here. We'll move the mountains what are what are our bodies and this earth that you see with all its different landscapes, hills and valleys all be flanked
like alpha completely flat flat. Hahaha no human then we will get it in Fallon, Nevada, me whom I had and will not neglect them at all. Now at face value again, it looks as though this is a complete change of subject method. And this is often the case in the Quran.
orientalists have studied the Quran in the past, and they've given comments like it's a jumbled mess and things like that, because they expected a book much like the lead of the Old Testament, for example, we things follow chronologically all the time, you know this once upon a time and then this happened and this happened and then there's a conclusion, but the Quran doesn't work like that. So per annum has been preserved in its pristine language unchanged for over 1400 years. And the third theme of the Iet are divinely placed. This differences of opinion with regards to the third theme of the sutras, right, like if the sutras are supposed to be in that order, with that was he had so this
difference of opinion the party is which I have follows next that was given divinely inspired Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he then instructed them Sahaba rhodiola I know and that's how they present
It. So it's no coincidence that you move from a story that speaks about how to deal with wealth and how to how to hold on to wealth, use wealth, but not fall in love with it to the extent that it enters into your heart to move from a story with such models immediately into prayer. And the connection is what
is very stern reminder that no matter what you have, no matter how powerful you are, you're not as powerful as the mountains, the mountains will be moved. What about your legacy
and this earth that you are so invested in?
Remember that this earth itself will perish will come to an end. That today, no matter what you believe, whether you are a theist or an atheist,
everyone knows scientists and believers we all agree on one thing.
This earth is going to end
it has to it has a lifespan. Okay. It's just a matter of how, how old are you?
Or have you prepared for the next life? Of course yours will be different theists believe believers, as Muslims or any monotheistic religion, we believe in an afterlife was the atheists do not.
And Allah subhana wa tada is giving us reminders like this, so as to bring us back to reality that these things will come to an end, right?
So even if the mountains will go, then what about your worldly worldly treasures, standing before barefoot, naked and uncircumcised that is how we will be in rows. Hit down.
We're already do right now because often they will be presented I'll Arabic upon your load mean they'll be presented to soften in rows. And when we say we speak about the rows inside our speak about the soft, right, which is like a combination of Arabic and English. Sufi is the brutal one soft mini so forth, how we come forth in depth gamma, soften in rows. This is one of the beautiful things about sada especially in JAMA.
And one because it portrays this beautiful he says when you hear the as an it's, it should remind you of the first blowing of the trumpet. Because what happens if the first blowing of the trumpet
everything comes to an end. So what should happen when
you have to stop what you're doing illegal everything, this is what should happen. You stop your job, you stop your work, whatever the task, you proceed performing, because everything comes to an end now, when you go forth, to prepare yourself to meet a low table do you go to the machine etc? What happens when a man leaves the coma?
Everyone sitting behind now but at least a common aim what happens? We stand up and then we do a walk forward. And we form what rose exactly what's going to happen in the piano. And the second blowing of the trumpet is called Hashem now whom people will be resurrected and they will be gathered fourth will already do either of because often there'll be standing in rows so the silence every time we perform we reform those rows for Salah we are actually reminding ourselves of what's going to happen in the depth gamma
locker digit to Muna locker G to Muna you have indeed come to us Kamara Hakuna come as we created you, uh, what am I wrong the first time around? So exactly as you came into this world, that's how you'll be presented with Allah. Now if you take a second to think of that, you know, I'm sure many of many of us you know those who have kids Mashallah. Sure they at the birth of your, of your son or daughter.
Then what happens? The child comes out naked
and covered in the fluid embryonic fluid.
We will come out of the ground resurrected from scratch again standing the with nothing. The Sahaba Of course, they were so they were so conscious about higher about modesty, that they would ask questions like, you know, won't we look at each other's aura. The Prophet system said on that day, the mother that's breastfeeding will leave a baby. A pregnant mother would would forego a load, you know, self abort. What do you think you'd have time to look at Besides, what about your own deeds? Byzantium, Allah, Masha, Allah de como ADA, ne you, you were certain that you had no appointment with us, meaning that you wouldn't stand here on camera. So of course we know that there are two
levels of this is the literal denial of karma that exists. There are people
In the world, and they always have been, who found life after death to be an impossible belief, they can't accept that belief. That's one level. But we just came across in the previous story, an incident of a man who apparently believed in Allah. But his love of dunya, his level of dounia was so intense that it made him It made him inclined more and more towards acting as though there is no a hero acting as though there's no afterlife. And this is what happens when you become so attached to dunya. You fear death, not because of your deeds, but you fear this because you're leaving all these things behind. And that's, of course, a very dangerous place to be, we shouldn't ever be at
that place as believers. So Allah speaks about you, we're certain that you would not have an appointment with us. Will the alchi tab handle? My I have a family member who, you know, once you're just sitting in Africa, and he made this comment, can you imagine that moment
standing in rows then before Allah, and the moment comes for the books to be handed out.
And the way in which the books will be handed out is that they will fall from the, from the sky from above. That's what we know from text. And it will either fall in your right then.
And this is not your choice isn't like maybe your identity will extend
or you will find that your right hand is tied behind your back and it will fall in your left hand. And at that moment,
at that moment, you know exactly where you're going. You may have you may have doubted before you know maybe this maybe that was saved me what event saved me hoping, hoping, hoping and fearing fearing fearing that at that moment, it says can you imagine what it must be like at that moment to receive your book?
You can think about how that would feel in your life. And of course, Alison Allah describes this emotion in the Quran, how mukava kita via the person who say come read my book, the person getting a good report card and then the other one of course, all the savers will the Makita the records will be placed fatter all moody mean you will see the criminals machine in complete fear. Shut up. This is an intense fear me Murphy because of what is in it. They didn't open the book yet. But those who received the books in the left hand will obviously know what they perpetrated in this life. They will know what crimes they committed. So they will they will feel because of what is in it where
Hulu and and they will say yeah, what are you Latina? Oh, how many great many have Nikita now they will be given the book right? And now they will they know what's in it. They also needed they'll be made to read it.
They'll say how we allocate money have al Qaeda What is wrong with this book. Larry, you heard us have a rotten one a cabbie rotten in love saw how it does not neglect a small thing nor a big thing except that it recorded it meticulously. It recorded it meticulously I saw her is is to count something, one by one, not like an estimate. So in other words, what this is telling us is that those they stand for, for Johanna, Allah not make us of those.
Because they are designed for jahannam they will have
the books in the left hand. And because they have the books in the left hand, they'll read the books, and they will see everything they did in their life. Now how will we be judged? If we were to sit here and do an exercise, and I asked, think of the year you became color and let's just make the playing field level and say from the age of 15. It was you know before that differs from person to person. But at the age of 50 if you want is more cognitive. If you still if you're asking of course sign in you become Bally's. That's when you are McCullough. So let's say from the age of 15. Take back a year of your life, which side of the scale would it be the left side or the right side.
Now go to 16 and then 17 and then 18 and do that for every year. Until this year.
If you were to assess if you were to do an honest assessment of yourself as the way to place that year on the scale,
that in and of itself is is not a very pleasant thought.
But that is not that we will be judging them.
It will be every moment of your life. Every single moment of your life.
NASA behind the law
We should make a lot of sugar and be really grateful that Allah Allah is just, but at the same time he has prescribed for himself Rama catabolize nfcu, Rama, Allah has chosen Rama over anything else. So the way in which believers will be judged once you have Eman, that is your, your prerequisite. Now you stand a good chance of being saved. They after it is your deeds, right. And if you if your good deeds outweigh your bad deeds, Allah promises that on that day, you will raise your babies. And of course, the Stober. And this is still for all of which will will scratch out the bed. Because the profitsystem said, if we do a bad deed, follow it up with a good deal, it will wipe it away.
But this is a very important thing that we need to remember. And that is the difference between wiping it away, as in, you know, sketching it out erasing it and getting rid of the pages altogether.
So the one is is still
is still felt that's sketching it out. You'll still have that thing in the record, but it will be sketched out.
But then this afternoon and Toba
teutoburg sincere repentance, we will never commit the deed again and you fulfill all of the requisites. That means that you don't have that record at all, because the Prophet Allah said that was sent to us at the Illumina dumping command.
The one repaints from a sin is like the one who never committed the sin at all. Which is why we need to be very careful of judging people. You know, sometimes you're in Japan, in a brother comes in and that brother for years has been committing wrong deeds and self within you know, this brother. But now it looks as though he changed his life around. It's so easy to fall into the trap of judging this person by saying no,
no, get this guy, you know, because we don't know that person might have changed the life around with the truth over in which case, not only are they equal to you, but they've got a clean slate.
And we don't
so be very careful of that. And then of course is Apple along my inaka foon to Hegel. For me that do i that is the only doctor that is prescribed on the most powerful night of the year that showed to the Horta just that drive make that drive the provinces insane because if I'll accept that, it means that not only will you forgive your sins, scratch them you know with a payment and delete delete it, but it will be a complete removal of those pages. Nothing will exist.
say Well, what do I do marami know how they are and they will find if anything they did present while I have any maraca Haida new load will not wrong anyone in the beast, every person will get exactly what they deserve.
The Justice and the depth the AMA is often highlighted
with the example of the animals
according to a CINAHL JAMA, according to the interpretations found without scholars from Quran and Sunnah
anymore animals. Now like I say All Dogs Go To Heaven. Rather This segment is unfortunately not true.
All dogs and all animals will be restricted, just like humans will be restricted, but for only one purpose.
What do you think that purposes
it's part of a
The only bid is elected for justice. Why not for heaven or file because the animals they don't have that free will that humans and Gene have so there's no reason for which to reward or punish them. So they will just be turned into nothingness they off the bat, because Allah is an idol. Just every animal will be restricted who has been wronged, so that they may exert justice upon those who harm that upon those who wronged them,
whether it be human beings or other animals
handle so the sheep and lamb for example, it owns the dunya bye by bullied another sheep who didn't. They'll be restricting their qiyamah tree Exactly. That's from prophetic teachings. So we can understand that to the extent that we should be just in this world. Never be unjust or oppress anyone else.
Verse number 15 Weill Cornell mela Cathy's Julie oedema faceva do Illa Emily's can Amina Jeannie FAFSA and Amira
Remember when we say to the angels, Prostrate to Adam, this is a prostration of greeting and a crustacean of respect that prostration was once upon a time perfectly fine.
Sunday prostrate to the Father, for example, it's fine, but not now. This type of frustration has been abrogated in the area of Mohammed salesa. So no one is allowed to prostrate to anyone or anything else in law law, except Allah Subhana Allah, so just know that. But in this case here, the angels are commanded by Dr. Adam procedure do they bow down in a police but not a police? Now, in other places in the Quran, this verse is repeated, it's about eight times with this part of the verse is repeated, very similar, exactly the same. But this is the only place in the Quran, where Allah elaborates on the nature of the beliefs. There are many people still up until this day, who
think because of this verse and others that he believes is an angel, a fallen angel, because that's a concept in Christianity. You have fallen angels, we don't have that anymore. Now, you're no such thing as fallen angels, if there is something as a fallen angel, according to our belief, that means allocated angels imperfectly, right. Because angels are supposed to be created like computers, they only do whatever they want.
So if they fallen angels, that means they didn't do what they were told unless the imperfection was back to Allah now it would be left rather Alessia scan Amina Jean. He was from the gene game, FIFA soccer Anna Marie Robbie, and therefore he sent in disobeyed the command of his load BECAUSE JEAN have free will, like humans have free will. Of course, there are some details to this Malaika created from nude we know that from the Quran, Gene are created from a type of fire smokeless fire that Allah describes in the Quran. And human can we are created from clay as a combination of Earth and water.
There is an opinion if I if I recall correctly, it's attributed to Shaheed Islamic potamia, who says that he believes was actually the father of gene. In other words, he was the first of the kind. However, that said we know also from the Quran from Surah Qian, that not all gene are evil. Sometimes you automatically think gene we think evil, but that's not the case. Right?
Jean can be Muslim, they can be Christian, they can be Jewish, they can be atheists, they can be careful, they can be believer, so they are as humankind in that sense, because they have free choice, but you're over elaborates that he was definitely from among the the gym guy he believes. And of course he was he believes as soon as he did this, and still try to justify the action. If you discuss briefly before he became
he became shavon shavon the regime, right which is of course a word it means we can angered and he was dismissed from the quarter letter either and he was a big news curse cost out.
We've discussed the whole keyboard thing so you're not going to get into that again. But now Allah asks
Luna who was Rita Who? Oh, Leah, I mean dooney wahoo Mila Kumara do
you mean by della? Are you taking him and his progeny as your guardians your friends your helpers and protectors mean do ni and not me not alone. While hula Kuma I do whilst they are enemies for you. They've been created with the purpose of being your enemies.
Big sell your volume in a battle. What an evil exchange This is of the wrongdoers. Now this of course two levels of this.
The first level is
the obvious, Satan worshipping. Now whilst it has always been a small facet in terms of direct worship,
very seldom you'll find people in the past worshipping Satan because they want to worship Satan. But indirectly, people fell into this often because shaitan tricks people into worshipping Him, right.
comes in through the gene comes in through exchanges. You sell your soul to the devil, doing favors for you and you thinking that you're doing good but you're not
nowadays are evil. Satan worship is out in the open, it's rife,
in some cases, even recognized as a religion. Right? They are. I mean, if you can look it up online, you'll see that there are churches of Satan. And even locally, I think people were rudely awakened to this reality just recently remotely. We the cemetery was desecrated, and they were obvious
bowls and things, placed the rave you also know. But a few days later they found some of the tombstones and other objects that were taken from the grave, in a shack somewhere else. Right? So these are things that people do they do. They believe in Witchcraft and Wizardry, and they believe in spells and potions and so on and so forth.
This exists, so that's on one level, on another level, by turning away from Allah, and turning towards loving of the love of the dunya
it is following the plot of shaytaan
because anything that removes you from Allah is taking you towards Shahzad. So we need to be cautious of, of both, Allah protect us always, I would like you to do some homework, visit beautiful lecture on the story of Adam and Eve beliefs.
And the whole time I'm talking, I'm trying to think of the of the speaker, and inshallah it's gonna come to me in a few moments, alongside the others in an apartment. So Geoffrey Lang, has a beautiful talk on this. Now, the person in question is apparently a professor, mathematician, etc. And he comes from a Christian background. And he speaks about how he found Islam. Right, I'm not going to give you the whole story, but I just wanted to give you enough so that you can actually go home and watch it, I think it's on YouTube.
He says somebody gave him a copy of Boko Haram. And he had it in his house, he was never gonna read it. It was there on the shelf. And he literally ran out of things to read one day.
And then that was the only thing left that he didn't read. So he took it in, he read it. And obviously 50 verses into Surah Baqarah. He comes across the story, and he's like, I know the story, because this is something that we share in common with the collision. But as soon as he starts reading it, realize that he realized that this is not the same story. Something's wrong here, the author made a mistake. So he narrates what he was thinking as he's reading the story. And it's some really good,
some really good comparisons that he makes, and I've indicated some of them here in the past.
But that's about it that you should take from Jeffrey Lang, because apparently, he's got some other weird stuff. He also
doesn't believe in certain Islamic texts and so on. But this this lecture is really good.
So the angels
I think all Muslims learn about the angels when we are young.
And then a second last time we ever think of in laws other than Maluku.
And these days, it's a bit detrimental to ask because is a huge role that the angels play.
So we know about JIRA II would you view jibber jabber at different pronunciations, Mika? Malik is Rafi Surah Al moon Karna ki
and these angels all have roles to play.
We know that there are angels on our writing and our list. Again only with children after that we forget they exist.
And when we children sometimes you even thought that the names are
rocky when it does not actually names the descriptions. Rocky is the Overwatch for it it is the lady.
So the angels have a very special place in that they carry out the commands of Allah subhana wa Tada.
Unlike other religions, we don't go to Allah through the angels. Right? So we don't go to overthrew saint so and so and Angel seven. So we don't do that. Because there's only one power and that's Allah.
So it's very important that we understand that they exist because of the roles that they play. And it's part of our Eman are meant to be liable melodica de Vaca to be but Furthermore, we don't ever turn to the angel of death, the angel of the wind the angel of of this and that no, we only turn to Allah Allah.
So I would like you to actually go through that story by watching the lecture of Jeffrey Lang and then I'm not going to go through with you and we can maybe discuss it next time in sha Allah. But that's a very, very good analogy. Sorry analysis. Always. Mash had to help us somewhat. You will have to either help and foresee him or makuta Lena do the I have
Not cause them to witness the creation of the heavens and the earth. No, they own creation. No, no would I think any Miss leaders as helpers, Allah speaking about the angel, Sunny the Jean
Jean singularitynet, Lulu,
because people take he believes in his offspring as assistance,
these a lot of practices in our community, unfortunately, that have even found a place within our cultures. But it's often mixed in with satanic rituals that you're unaware of.
So you have to be very, very careful of the unseen world and people who claim to be practicing, you know, cures and so forth for this. Because a lot of people, they think they're doing good. But they actually relying on assistance on gene,
whether they know it or not, often they don't know it. So you have people who write these estimates are too much, right? And these numbers and these names and stuff that they don't understand. Many people do this. They don't know. And it makes it No, what did I think they were just told by somebody else's what you must say. And then they found that somebody used that at work. But what they don't know is that they calling upon certain gene and the names of angels and so on, and this is absolutely how it's tantamount to COVID in Islam.
So the best thing is to avoid these things all together. I personally found that nine times out of 10 when people think that they're being afflicted by black magic and salad and things like that, it's either them being very paranoid, or a genuine case of insanity. Genuine case you missed it, because it's a very fine line between junoon and Gene customers and ruthless junoon meaning madness, and Gene meaning, these unseen beings, and thirdly, sinning.
So sometimes somebody's so engulfed in a sin, that they actually suffering from an addiction. But because they can't explain their own behavior, or the things that are happening to them, they attributed towards black magic witchcraft was a great cetera, whether it be sex addiction, drug addiction, alcohol addiction, just like so many bad things happening to them. So most of the time, it's one of those three things, absolute insanity, hate the paranoia, or sending, but there are instances in which it's it's matters of the unseen In which case,
don't phone me.
Well, mail guru Nadia Shoraka Nadine has their own phenomenon, Mr. de la, Jana binomo, because they will come in will call
I will I will come on the policies to call all my partners, partners or doesn't have any parties. Those who they claimed are less partners, a little psycho, all the people and all the things that you worship besides me. And Latinas and to those of you claimed for their own then they will call them people will call me reseller they will call me Lisa. They will call idols they will call statues for them yesterday, we will have them but these things will not respond to them was anabaena who mobile and no place a barrier between them. So there's no assistance going either way. What are the moduli moon and now and the criminals will see the fire for one more another motto, they will be
convinced at that time that they're going to be falling in the wollemi a judo and Hamas refer and they will not find any help from the boy is that idea. I'm going to ask you a question now. What is this got to do with the old theme of soccer?
we talking about calling and this besides all the finding assistance with a gin and with shaytaan? How is this relevant to the introductions and everything we gave about Soraka? why it's important? Why are we reading it every Friday?
That's exactly what's going to happen at the end of time.
So people are going to be turning to debt to the job. Convinced that it's okay. It's fine. It's right.
How convinced so convinced that they've actually been waiting for him for many, many years. We said that the Christians are waiting for the return of the Christ.
The Jews are waiting for the Promised Messiah.
So they expecting someone in years this person coming with all these convincing arguments
and of course the satanist study as well. So always warning as very, very strict clear that these are all acts of shape on
one accord sort of nafi helper and in a nasty mean Cooley method and we have explained in this course and for the people of every example we can insert a crochet in Jeddah
Human beings are very, very argumentative and quarrelsome, they will rather argue against it than to accept its guidance. By the way, there are people in the world who would use an ayah like this and other similar is to say that they don't believe in Hades and this is the proof because Allah says in the Quran that we have put forth every kind of example in the Quran. So why do you need Hadith? Why do you need other ticks? It's a very
it's a very primitive argument. It's not a very advanced argument. But it's just deal with it quickly. So the Quran says that Debian and equally shades explanation for everything, but very simply put, you can ask the question, so we use the Quranic recipe for braid, or how do you fix your car based on the Quran? Simple things like that, right? Or you can be a bit more advanced and say, well explain we look for and teaches us to make solid from beginning for him.
if you stop the end, you might say no, but that means is deficient. The Quran does give you guidance. The Quran teaches you to follow the prophets to follow the teachings of the Rasulullah saw some and Gambia and local animals do first.
off those who know if you don't know so you want to know how to make a breed Oscar Baker like that. But I'm just mentioning this because you do get this this type of arguments in the community. So that's, that's the end of what we went through to get to tonight.
Immediately after this we go into the into the next hook into the next story, which is the story of little corny.
Now sorry, musang hater type. So we've seen there's going to be some time for questions and answers. Now's the time
