Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:01:31--> 00:01:36

We move on to the next parable that is mentioned in Seurat alley Emraan.

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

And this is in verse number 117.

00:01:42--> 00:01:47

In this parable, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us the example of

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

what the kuffaar spend

00:01:55--> 00:02:01

whatever they spend, especially in charity for example, what is the end result of it?

00:02:03--> 00:02:08

What some kind of hula tada says, meta lumayan kikuna fee, how the higher to dunia cannot reach.

00:02:10--> 00:02:17

The example of what they spend in this worldly life is like that of

00:02:18--> 00:02:18

a wind,

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

a very bitter wind, he has sukoon.

00:02:24--> 00:02:27

In this wind there is frost

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

or hail

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

or saw the volume and

00:02:38--> 00:02:43

this wind strikes the harvest of a people

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

who wronged themselves

00:02:47--> 00:02:53

and evil people who wronged themselves and so it destroyed their harvest.

00:02:55--> 00:02:59

Well now Salama whom Allahu Allah and forcibly removed

00:03:00--> 00:03:05

it was not a law who wronged them, but rather de wronged themselves.

00:03:07--> 00:03:12

Now if we want to look at the background of this verse, Then let us look at the verses that come before

00:03:14--> 00:03:20

Allah subhanho wa Taala if we go back to verse 113, Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

describes to us that lol keytab

00:03:26--> 00:03:30

are of two kinds are two categories

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

ladies who say

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

they are not all the same

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

Hello Kitab the Jews and Christians they are not all the same

00:03:41--> 00:03:51

mean lol kitabi una parte de Mattoon yet Luna IIT La La Li, for whom yes Joon among Al Kitab

00:03:52--> 00:04:04

are a group of people who stand praying reciting the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala at night and they also make sujood

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

and then what describes them? You mean una de la jolla

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

Marina Del Mar roofie when

00:04:12--> 00:04:15

when you say do not feel hierarchy without camino Salim.

00:04:16--> 00:04:19

There are those who believe in along the last day.

00:04:20--> 00:04:25

They command the good they forbid the evil and they rush to do good deeds

00:04:26--> 00:04:35

and they are among the righteous. So notice how here Allah says they believe in Allah and the Last, which means that this group of people always describing

00:04:37--> 00:04:40

are those who accepted Islam from among

00:04:42--> 00:04:48

those who accepted Islam from among kita like in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:04:49--> 00:04:58

whether they were Jews, whether they be Christians who accepted Islam and became among the greatest of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

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

If I do mean hiring for Peru, Allahu Allah when dealing with tequila, whatever they do have good It will not be rejected.

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

And Allah is knowledgeable about those who have tequila.

00:05:14--> 00:05:27

So this is the first group. Then Allah tells us in the next verse in verse 116. In alladhina, Kufa Len Tonia on whom, to whom? Allah, Allah to whom, you know Lord Shiva.

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

Indeed those who disbelieve

00:05:32--> 00:05:35

whether they be Christians, Jews, whatever they

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

prefer,

00:05:39--> 00:05:45

their wealth and their children will not avail that will be of no benefit for them.

00:05:47--> 00:05:58

before Allah subhanahu wa Tada, what would I call charbonnel. You can see how fun they are the companions of the Fire, they will be there in forever, then a law gives us this terrible measure looming.

00:06:00--> 00:06:01

We have the power to do

00:06:02--> 00:06:10

whatever they spend, meaning this second category of people have the kuffar. Whatever they spend,

00:06:12--> 00:06:18

whatever they spend, whatever they do, will be accepted from them. Unlike the first group,

00:06:21--> 00:06:37

which I said, when is looming, hiring a new crew, whatever they do have good, it won't be rejected from them. And so the first group, they believed in line in a lot in the last day. So they benefited with the deeds that they did.

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

The deeds that they did,

00:06:42--> 00:06:43

whatever they did,

00:06:45--> 00:06:46

it was a benefit to them.

00:06:47--> 00:07:05

While the second group did not believe in a lot in the last day, and so, a lot gives us this parable of what they spent. And so the expenditure of the kuffar a lot compares it to a destroyed agriculture

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

a destroyed farm.

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

And so when the disbelievers they spend,

00:07:14--> 00:07:23

they spend for other than Allah obedience, for other than the pleasure of Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

whatever they spend, they do it for worldly reasons.

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

They do it for the sake of this dunya

00:07:35--> 00:07:40

and also they do it to ward people away from Islam, as Allah tells us

00:07:41--> 00:07:47

in alladhina cafaro Yun feel cooler and wider whom we also do and Sabina

00:07:48--> 00:07:51

kuffaar they spend of their wealth

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

to ward people away from Islam

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

toward people away from the path of Allah

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

festa une fue una

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

semana Taku Allium Hazara,

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

Allah Boone, so they will spend

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

and then they will continue to spend and then it will become

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

a source of regret for them.

00:08:22--> 00:08:44

Meaning they will spend and spend in the 1000s in the millions in the billions, as they are doing today, to ward people away from Islam. Whether it be through the media, whether it be physically by going into Muslim lands, and killing Muslims, and spreading their evil ideologies.

00:08:47--> 00:08:56

Whatever they spend in that cause toward people we from Islam, the prophet of Allah, they will spend and spend and spend, and then when they see more results,

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

it will fall into regret.

00:09:00--> 00:09:04

Your whole purpose of spending is to ward people away from Islam.

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

But what is happening,

00:09:08--> 00:09:21

the opposite, more people are coming into Islam. And so this is an example of their regret, or that they will spend and spend and spend in waging wars against Muslims.

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

But after 10 years, 20 years

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

they still haven't won their war.

00:09:32--> 00:09:37

After spending billions and trillions, as we see today in certain countries,

00:09:38--> 00:09:46

where they have been trying to, you know, put out the light of Islam, and the Muslims and Muslim rule and authority in certain countries.

00:09:48--> 00:09:52

After decades, Islam is still thriving.

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

And now they fall into regret, though May Allah boo. Then after that what tells us they will become defeated.

00:10:01--> 00:10:13

They will spend, continue to spend, then they will fall into grep. And then they will become defeated as what happened to them in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

So,

00:10:16--> 00:10:22

the expenditure of the kuffar in this life, a lot compares it to a calamity.

00:10:24--> 00:10:28

A natural disaster that strikes

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

the crop

00:10:32--> 00:10:32

of

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

people who have this farm, they have this agriculture

00:10:38--> 00:10:44

and they are ready to harvest they are ready to, you know, collect their fruits.

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

All of a sudden,

00:10:47--> 00:10:51

their farm is hit by this fierce and bitter wind,

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

destroying it all.

00:10:57--> 00:11:02

burning it to the ground, depriving the owners

00:11:04--> 00:11:12

of it when they were most in need of it. It came time to harvest it came time to collect the fruit.

00:11:14--> 00:11:20

And they were deprived of it. The reason a law tells us their own wrongdoing.

00:11:22--> 00:11:25

law tells us how to sell how to sell

00:11:27--> 00:11:30

the harvest or the form of people

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

who wronged themselves.

00:11:35--> 00:11:41

So such as the case of the kuffaar a law destroys the rewards for their good deeds in this life.

00:11:42--> 00:11:46

Why? Because they wronged them themselves.

00:11:47--> 00:11:54

It was not a loss of a parent who died who wronged them rather Rather, they are the ones who chose this path.

00:11:55--> 00:11:57

And so they should blame none but themselves.

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

There are many lessons that we can learn from this parable.

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

The first is

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

that no matter what good

00:12:10--> 00:12:11

a disbeliever does,

00:12:12--> 00:12:18

no matter what good a catheter does in this dunya it is all going to waste.

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

Why?

00:12:22--> 00:12:29

Because he did not do any of it sincerely for the sake of a loss and what

00:12:30--> 00:12:41

and so he man is a condition for any good deed to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala as Allah subhanahu wa tada says, women are all Hirata

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

was

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

what's the condition? Well, who I mean?

00:12:50--> 00:12:54

Would like to kind of sell your school or whoever desires that.

00:12:56--> 00:13:01

And then strike puts in the effort by doing good deeds.

00:13:02--> 00:13:10

Well, who am I Meanwhile, being a woman, a believer. And so this shows us that a man is a condition for

00:13:11--> 00:13:13

our deeds to be accepted by Allah.

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

And for attaining gentlemen.

00:13:16--> 00:13:23

Many people they strive in this life, to do good deeds, thinking that they will enter, but they're far.

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

And we hear stories of so many,

00:13:29--> 00:13:35

you know, Christians or others who do so maturity work, who spend in the 1000s.

00:13:37--> 00:13:39

All of that will go to waste. Why?

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

Because it was lacking this condition of EMA and its loss.

00:13:46--> 00:13:54

A loss of 100 the second lesson that we learned is that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions spending

00:13:55--> 00:14:02

here in this verse, and in this parable, he mentioned spending out of all of the good deeds that he could have mentioned.

00:14:05--> 00:14:06

Why?

00:14:07--> 00:14:15

because money is something that is, we love it for every single human being, whether he be a Muslim or a Catholic.

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

Money is something very valuable.

00:14:21--> 00:14:23

It's something dear to our hearts.

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

You work a lot to earn that money.

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

And so

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

because it's so beloved,

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

it's very difficult to give it away.

00:14:36--> 00:14:38

It's extremely difficult to give that money away.

00:14:40--> 00:14:46

And so that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions it here, out of all the other good deeds that I mentioned.

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

And so this shows us

00:14:52--> 00:14:52

that

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

even if that person gave it away,

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

it still won't be accepted.

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

Why, because it was done without a man and without a loss.

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

The third lesson that we learned is

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

that this is the end result

00:15:13--> 00:15:18

of the deeds of the kafar or anyone who

00:15:19--> 00:15:22

does something that cancels out his good.

00:15:23--> 00:15:41

And previously, in some of the previous parables that we have covered, we saw examples of how certain things, pause our deeds, our good deeds, become an old become canceled, become wizard.

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

So, we looked at for example,

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

how the React

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

going off

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

person who gives him charity,

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

and he does so showing off,

00:15:59--> 00:16:00

or a person who

00:16:01--> 00:16:07

does a good deed, and then he admires himself that look at who I am, look at what I did.

00:16:10--> 00:16:11

Likewise, and men will

00:16:13--> 00:16:22

give in charity, and then remind others, especially those who gave your charity to remind them that it was me who gave you

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

or to, you know, use hurtful words

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

when addressing them.

00:16:31--> 00:16:35

These are things that cancel out that charity,

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

we won't get any of the reward for that.

00:16:40--> 00:16:41

And so,

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

such people

00:16:50--> 00:16:53

did these good deeds, whether it be charity or anything else.

00:16:55--> 00:17:01

They hope that they will see the reward of that on the Day of Judgment. But when they come on the Day of Judgment,

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

they will

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

disappear before their very eyes.

00:17:09--> 00:17:11

As Allah subhanho wa Taala says unsuitable for Pon

00:17:13--> 00:17:18

work Kadima, Ilana ami, rumina, Allahu hubba,

00:17:19--> 00:17:22

we will then turn to their good deeds meaning on the Day of Judgment,

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

the deeds of the performed we will turn to them

00:17:28--> 00:17:35

whatever they have done of deeds, we will turn to their deeds, then we will make it like dust becomes dispersed.

00:17:37--> 00:17:41

When at a time when they're in most in need of it. Just like

00:17:43--> 00:17:51

you know, these farmers who were in need of that fruit at the time when they were most in need of it, it was destroyed.

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

The fourth lesson that we learned from this

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

from this parable is that the Kufa

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

they deserve what they will get.

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

And as the saying goes,

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

you get what you deserve.

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

And you are treated

00:18:17--> 00:18:17

like the way

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

you treated other.

00:18:23--> 00:18:26

And so why will these kuffaar

00:18:28--> 00:18:32

be deprived of the reward of their good deeds on the day of judgment?

00:18:34--> 00:18:41

Simply because they were asked to something very easy and simple.

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

Something that

00:18:45--> 00:18:49

all the evidences have come to prove that it is the truth.

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

But they decided to,

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

to disbelieve.

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

So all they were asked to do is believe

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

all they're asked to do is to believe.

00:19:05--> 00:19:09

And here are all the evidences proving the truth of Islam.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

And then after all that they decide to display.

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

So that's why I was a parent who tells us here

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

he reminds them

00:19:23--> 00:19:25

well now Voluma Humala

00:19:29--> 00:19:41

a lot did not wrong. Don't think it was a loss of herunter who Atlanta who is doing injustice here. They did all of these good deeds, don't they deserve the reward of it?

00:19:43--> 00:19:51

There's a loss at the very end of this as well now of Allah Muhammad wa. A lot did not do wrong to them. What is not unjust

00:19:53--> 00:19:53

malarkey

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

but rather the themselves wrong themselves. How

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

not believing.

00:20:02--> 00:20:10

So Allah subhanho wa Taala does not press anyone law does not do injustice to anyone on our bukovel lamb in the lobby,

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

voila, yo Lima buka Harada.

00:20:16--> 00:20:19

Allah does not do injustice to anyone.

00:20:20--> 00:20:23

Allow me to injustice her on for himself.

00:20:25--> 00:20:29

And he made it wrong for us to do injustice to one another.

00:20:31--> 00:20:36

And so on the day of judgment or laws, Justice will be established.

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

And these people who come with all of these students,

00:20:45--> 00:20:47

they won't get a single reward for it.

00:20:49--> 00:20:50

Because they did not deserve it.

00:20:52--> 00:21:11

As simple as that, they did not deserve it. Why? Because they were missing a condition because they did something to cancel out to waste, all of those rewards, and so, a lot is the old just and he will deal with everyone with full justice.
