00:00:00--> 00:00:00

What do you

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


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

move on after that?

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


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

and this is moving on

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


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

versus 175

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

was an editor's

00:00:37--> 00:00:42

what lining him never a lady, Tina,

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

Tina, Salome

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

youporn, Amina Laval we

00:00:54--> 00:01:00

know who the hell wanna know, Elon law we were

00:01:03--> 00:01:04

permitted, who

00:01:05--> 00:01:08

will be in LA he has

00:01:10--> 00:01:22

to have their legal matter. Only lady in the booty Tina proposals will also falls on I know whom the

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

loss of Hannah who was the highlight here those are off

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

and receive them the news

00:01:37--> 00:01:42

of the one who we gave knowledge of our bad person.

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

But then he threw them away

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

and pursued him and he became us.

00:01:53--> 00:02:02

And if we had willed, We would have elevated him thereby. But he belonged to the earth and followed his own desire.

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

So his example,

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

like a dog,

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

if you face the dog, he can

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

hold his tongue.

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

Or if you leave him, you don't, he's still

00:02:20--> 00:02:21


00:02:23--> 00:02:28

denied our yet to release them for ease that

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

they will

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

this parable that I was going to give this

00:02:37--> 00:02:41

is concerning those abandon the knowledge.

00:02:43--> 00:02:50

Knowledge of this theme has given them the abandoned their own their,

00:02:51--> 00:02:51

their desire.

00:02:53--> 00:03:00

So Allah tells us that the one who obtained the knowledge or had given them is like a dog

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

that is always panting

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

panting, the cold it's

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

always sticking over on

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

walk around wherever you see it.

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

So this verse is I

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

read what

00:03:26--> 00:03:27

he wrote on what was a

00:03:29--> 00:03:29

burning desire.

00:03:31--> 00:03:36

They say that it was revealed about a man

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

from ancient times.

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

Benny is

00:03:44--> 00:03:49

and this is according in Massoud, for the long run, and several others from among us.

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

And this man,

00:03:56--> 00:04:01

some have named him that his name was spelled wrong.

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

Well, I'm in that role.

00:04:05--> 00:04:07

And so, he was basically a scholar.

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

of then

00:04:11--> 00:04:18

they say that he lived to study them, but then later on, he deviated from that.

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

And so it was

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

revealed this

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

for a long time of profit prophet solo

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

in particular, the Jews,

00:04:36--> 00:04:36


00:04:39--> 00:04:42

who had been waiting for ages.

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

And when this off he was

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

and so they had a knowledge of the truth

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

their scriptures

00:05:02--> 00:05:04

is why these Jews settled in Medina

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

came and settled in Medina, for this very,

00:05:12--> 00:05:14

they have always understood

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


00:05:20--> 00:05:21

go to Baccarat

00:05:22--> 00:05:28

tells us that you know they were waiting for him. Finally, they

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

rejected him.

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

butanna had given him knowledge

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

of his Scripture

00:05:50--> 00:05:55

tells us that he had given him his idea, meaning knowledge of the Scripture

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

that Allah had not given to anyone else.

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

But instead, this man decided to abandon it

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

and abandon

00:06:08--> 00:06:17

acting by this knowledge. Instead, he chose to follow his desires, referring this life over the neck.

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

So a lot compared him to a dog.

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

And the dog is one of the dirtiest animals

00:06:29--> 00:06:31

whose only concern is

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

to quench his thirst

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

to fill its stomach,

00:06:40--> 00:06:45

which is why you always find the dog, sticking his tongue

00:06:47--> 00:06:53

wherever it goes into licking things, it's sniffing whatever it comes across.

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

And so, this man

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

is like a dog.

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

In that his only concern

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

is fulfill his temporary desire.

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

Whether he finds it or not.

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

And so whether you chase after him,

00:07:20--> 00:07:23

admonishing him trying to give him or her

00:07:24--> 00:07:28

trying to advise him or give him our advising him

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

telling him Look,

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

you know, Allah has blessed you with knowledge.

00:07:35--> 00:07:43

You shouldn't be doing this. You shouldn't be committing these sins, you shouldn't be chasing after your however, your desires. Whether you chase him

00:07:45--> 00:07:46

after him

00:07:47--> 00:07:48

or you leave him

00:07:50--> 00:07:50

it's the same.

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

He's not gonna change.

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

Us, just like the dog.

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

allinial has Dr. tokuyama.

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

If you were to chase after the dog, he would still be panting with his tongue go. If you were to leave him, he would be in that same state, always looking for some way to fulfill

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

fulfill its desires to fill it stomach.

00:08:26--> 00:08:28

And this is only found in dogs.

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

This is only found in dogs always thirsty, quench their thirst with anything.

00:08:37--> 00:08:40

And so notice how was upheld who attacked it says here

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

that he gave this man his

00:08:47--> 00:08:51

loss of Hannah who says that he gave him he's a young

00:08:52--> 00:08:53


00:08:54--> 00:08:56

Tina, Tina,

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

the one who a lot we gave him our ion. Notice

00:09:04--> 00:09:08

reflector. Allah says we gave him our irons.

00:09:10--> 00:09:13

But it was not alone. We

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

is iron from this man

00:09:17--> 00:09:28

noticer versus LLP as they say, you know who it now we gave him our IRA. But then what is the last a lot does not say. But then we took away

00:09:29--> 00:09:33

his knowledge that we had given to him. We took away our IR from him

00:09:35--> 00:09:37

and Santa homina

00:09:39--> 00:09:44

he, this man is the one who threw them away.

00:09:45--> 00:09:53

And sulla homina he threw away the act that was given to him the knowledge it was he abandoned the knowledge

00:09:56--> 00:09:56

and then

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

what is the law say after that

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


00:10:01--> 00:10:02

a terrible shape.

00:10:03--> 00:10:03


00:10:05--> 00:10:06

as a result,

00:10:08--> 00:10:12

a thought chased after him. And he became one of those who's a straight.

00:10:14--> 00:10:19

And so, what caused him to go spring? Yes. But when,

00:10:20--> 00:10:24

when he himself chose to take that.

00:10:25--> 00:10:34

And this is a lesson that we learn a very, very important lesson that we learned concerning dieting and misguided

00:10:37--> 00:10:47

Yes, both l hedaya. And abdominal guidance and misguidance we attribute it to a lot in the hands of a lot.

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

Yes, I was.

00:10:51--> 00:10:52


00:10:54--> 00:10:59

those who a lot misguide those who have law allows for them to go astray.

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

And who does not do that?

00:11:05--> 00:11:08

Because he is unjust the panel with

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

a law does not do that.

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

without a reason,

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

the individual himself

00:11:21--> 00:11:30

rather a lot only causes them to go straight after the the chip itself, he themselves goes the path of his guide

00:11:32--> 00:11:36

as we can see here in this industry and throughout the world and that is what you find.

00:11:37--> 00:11:42

You will find a single example in the Quran, where Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

tells us that

00:11:47--> 00:11:56

these kuffaar cause them to go astray without themselves having chosen the path of misguidance

00:11:58--> 00:12:09

always mentions how they themselves choose that path. For example wasn't Hannah who Allah says in Surah two soft Bella Mazda whoa whoa whoa whoa cool down

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

when he saw

00:12:13--> 00:12:14

when they deviated

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

then Allah cause their hearts to deviate

00:12:19--> 00:12:24

a lot did not initiate the deviation rather it was at themselves who initiated

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

also was a parent who says

00:12:32--> 00:12:44

in the Latina cafo for Baccarat in the Latino car furusawa calling him and Doctor whom Eminem tunes your home. Now you mean those who just believe

00:12:46--> 00:12:51

it is the same for them whether you warn them or you do not warn them? They will not believe

00:12:52--> 00:12:55

why because they have chosen that path to not believe

00:12:57--> 00:13:20

they have chosen the path of disbelief. They don't want to believe and then what does the law say right after that. But um Allahu Allah, Ruby him, why is he him? Why are beside him have a shower, follow him as an AVI therefore has set a seal over their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is avail

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

for them is a painful punishment, a great punishment. Why?

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

Because they chose that themselves.

00:13:32--> 00:13:34

There are many lessons that we learned from this parable.

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

Among these lessons is first of all,

00:13:39--> 00:13:45

this parable was given concerning those who sell their Deen for the price of the dunya

00:13:46--> 00:13:53

those who sell their Deen or the price of the dunya especially

00:13:55--> 00:13:56


00:13:57--> 00:13:58

who have deviated

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

and other people of knowledge,

00:14:03--> 00:14:08

Allah subhanho wa Taala granted them knowledge of his Deen and they became scholars

00:14:10--> 00:14:11


00:14:13--> 00:14:16

they decided to follow their However,

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

their desires

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

instead of

00:14:22--> 00:14:27

preferring the knowledge and implementing it, they decided to follow their desires.

00:14:28--> 00:14:33

And so, Watson had a hotel is giving us this for such

00:14:34--> 00:14:38

or such people and we have so many such people unfortunately today.

00:14:41--> 00:14:45

Yesterday we used to see them as being very knowledgeable.

00:14:46--> 00:14:49

And today, look at where they are.

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

They have become people of the dunya chasing after the dunya

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

and the worst part of it is that they use the D

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

To pursue the dunya

00:15:03--> 00:15:10

they use this element is knowledge that Allah has granted them. And they use that status to chase after the dunya.

00:15:12--> 00:15:13


00:15:14--> 00:15:16

what a humiliating,

00:15:17--> 00:15:23

terrible example Allah has given us 13 such people that their example is like that of a doc.

00:15:24--> 00:15:26

The second lesson that we learn is

00:15:29--> 00:15:37

that we should be aware of choosing to leave guidance after law has guided us. If a law has made you to be one of those who Allah has guided

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

to practice this need

00:15:43--> 00:15:45

to be a committed Muslim.

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


00:15:48--> 00:15:50

of burning,

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

don't turn back

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

on the street,

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

remain steadfast upon it,

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

don't turn back,

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

you do them

00:16:09--> 00:16:15

a thorn he will find you as fresh meat ready to pounce upon you.

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

Because what did the law say here? Who shaved on

00:16:21--> 00:16:27

when he decided to throw away the eye at the knowledge that we had given him a font faced after him

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

took advantage of the situation.

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

That is a way of shape on wherever is opportunity.

00:16:40--> 00:16:42

And so if Allah has given you guidance,

00:16:44--> 00:16:52

and you're following the strict path, he were awesome slacking off. Because once you slack off,

00:16:53--> 00:17:02

and you start become lazy, and you start turning to the desires of your knifes in that which Allah has made her on.

00:17:04--> 00:17:09

And you basically invaded shape on the come and lead you astray.

00:17:10--> 00:17:16

The third lesson that we learned here is that knowledge alone does not release a person.

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

knowledge in itself

00:17:20--> 00:17:22

is not what elevates people.

00:17:24--> 00:17:29

That's why Allah says here, when I was in a lot of China,

00:17:31--> 00:17:34

if we had willed, We would have elevated him with this knowledge.

00:17:35--> 00:17:42

And so if knowledge alone is what raises a person, then Iblees would have been

00:17:44--> 00:17:44


00:17:47--> 00:17:49

As police had no

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

police had knowledge that

00:17:53--> 00:17:55

even we human beings didn't have

00:17:57--> 00:18:10

he was elevated to the point because of his data and whatnot. What had elevated him to be in the rent the company of the angels who are developed during the loss of Hannah hutan.

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

But then

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

he went straight,

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

disobeyed the law.

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

What is the law do

00:18:24--> 00:18:29

a lot of the way that elevated status that he had brought him down.

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

And so knowledge alone is not what elevates a person.

00:18:35--> 00:18:38

But rather, what elevates a person

00:18:39--> 00:18:40


00:18:42--> 00:18:49

to have a desire for that knowledge, and then to learn it and then to prefer it over everything else.

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

Learn the knowledge of the deen

00:18:55--> 00:18:58

read the path of tolerability of seeking knowledge

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


00:19:03--> 00:19:06

not just learn it for the sake of knowledge

00:19:07--> 00:19:08

for the sake of

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


00:19:11--> 00:19:18

and preferring it over everything, especially over the desires of your naps.

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

The fourth lesson is that we human beings

00:19:25--> 00:19:26

are created us

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

of two things.

00:19:30--> 00:19:35

What defines a human being is not just our body and our flesh.

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

That's how science

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

defines a human being.

00:19:47--> 00:19:51

But rather, Allah subhanahu wa Donna meet us a few things.

00:19:52--> 00:19:56

Allow me to have a body that is made of clay

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

as we don't have family history

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

What from what I needed him from clean,

00:20:06--> 00:20:07

from dust,

00:20:09--> 00:20:12

from dirt, from the ground,

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

what religion from the ground,

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

we have a body that is made of clay.

00:20:19--> 00:20:23

And the second thing is that we are made of a spirit.

00:20:25--> 00:20:27

That is from a loss of Hannah who

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

we are made of a spirit and a body,

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

our body is of clean.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

And our spirit is from Allah Subhana

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

Allah Subhana, who breathed

00:20:47--> 00:20:50

the soul that he created into Adam.

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

So, you have a choice.

00:20:57--> 00:21:00

And I want to I want you to really ponder over this.

00:21:01--> 00:21:02

You have a choice,

00:21:04--> 00:21:05


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

the ground

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

and satisfy your bodily pressures.

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

because your body is made of clay is made of this earth.

00:21:23--> 00:21:28

And you can satisfy your bodily pleasures with what is on Earth, this dunya

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

could satisfy your body

00:21:32--> 00:21:32


00:21:34--> 00:21:35

you can rise upward

00:21:37--> 00:21:39

and elevate yourself to heaven.

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

That we were

00:21:47--> 00:21:48

that is

00:21:50--> 00:21:56

by nurturing your spirit your soul, that is where it is from above it is from Allah soprano.

00:21:57--> 00:22:01

Notice how our body is made of the earth

00:22:02--> 00:22:05

what is lower our spirit can

00:22:07--> 00:22:07


00:22:09--> 00:22:14

you satisfy your bodily pleasures or you rise upwards to the heaven that

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

that we were kicked out of.

00:22:19--> 00:22:27

And these are the only voices that you have a loss of Hannah who is not it says sort of chumps the heavens

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

or the whoredom in the sir

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

you only have one of two people.

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

Law says he has succeeded

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

he has succeeded the one

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

who purifies his

00:22:50--> 00:22:55

arm and disarm and he has lost he is a loser The one

00:22:56--> 00:22:59

who instills his soul with corruption he corrupt

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


00:23:09--> 00:23:13

those are for an allowance of Hana Hana

00:23:14--> 00:23:15


00:23:17--> 00:23:19

referred to

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

being satisfied with the dunya

00:23:24--> 00:23:25

sticking to the ground

00:23:27--> 00:23:28

there are other places as well.

00:23:29--> 00:23:35

This intuitively are off here in this area that we went through

00:23:36--> 00:23:39

your Allah subhanho wa Taala says how this man

00:23:40--> 00:23:41

What did he do?

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

Well, no * Nah, nah, nah.

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

If we had willed we could have elevated him with our IRA with this knowledge.

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

What does it show us not

00:23:54--> 00:23:56

to the knowledge

00:23:57--> 00:24:04

of the Quran of this Deen we elevate ourselves and elevate our soul

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

towards heaven that were kicked out of.

00:24:10--> 00:24:12

However, this man, what did he do?

00:24:14--> 00:24:26

instead of choosing the elevated law says well our kin ledger l o v sub r Hawa. Instead, he clung to the ground with earth.

00:24:28--> 00:24:30

He remained clinging to the earth

00:24:31--> 00:24:32

and followed his desire.

00:24:34--> 00:24:39

This is one example elsewhere in the Quran, Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala also

00:24:40--> 00:24:46

refers to being satisfied with the dunya as clinging to the ground.

00:24:48--> 00:24:52

So Allah says in sort of over

00:24:54--> 00:24:56

Yeah, you Latina Avenue,

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

mera la comida de la la comunidad de serie de la

00:25:00--> 00:25:01


00:25:03--> 00:25:12

you believe what is wrong with you? That when it is said to you that out March 4, in the path of Allah

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

meaning in Jihad

00:25:16--> 00:25:20

What is wrong with you when when the call is made for he had to go and fight

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

that you stick to the ground if

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

you remain holding the ground

00:25:30--> 00:25:33

then Allah says Allah Litem will hire Junior,

00:25:34--> 00:25:34


00:25:36--> 00:25:39

Are you satisfied with the dunya over the euro

00:25:40--> 00:25:44

for now Mata dunya, fille de la Colleen

00:25:45--> 00:25:53

what is the temporary enjoyment of the dunya compared with the Acura except very little.

00:25:54--> 00:26:17

And so, this shows us how Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to being satisfied with the dunya that we have as being sticking to the ground. And basically what it means is what we meant that our bodies are made of clay of the ground. And you have the choice, if you want you can satisfy your bodily pleasures,

00:26:18--> 00:26:21

but it will be at the expense of neutering

00:26:24--> 00:26:25

which is not from this earth.

00:26:26--> 00:26:28

from Allah from above.

00:26:29--> 00:26:31

The last lesson that we learned here

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

is that there is nothing worse

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

than loving the dunya

00:26:39--> 00:26:40

and preferring to hella

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

desires, the whim

00:26:46--> 00:26:49

also Hernan who Allah says in Surah, two nezhat

00:26:53--> 00:26:54

whereas total hire to do

00:26:56--> 00:26:57

that in FEMA here.

00:26:59--> 00:27:02

As for the one who transgresses all down

00:27:03--> 00:27:06

and prefers the leaf of the dunya

00:27:07--> 00:27:11

then indeed jahannam will be his

00:27:13--> 00:27:14

other hand.

00:27:16--> 00:27:19

Man hoffa mcomber Obi Wan

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


00:27:25--> 00:27:26

As for the one

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

who fears standing before his Lord

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

and he prevents

00:27:34--> 00:27:37

his knifes from its However, its whims and desires,

00:27:38--> 00:27:42

then indeed, Jenna will be his abode

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

have one of

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

either you are of those

00:27:49--> 00:27:52

who prefer the life of the dunya over the asker

00:27:54--> 00:27:59

and if you do that, then the path that you are trading is the path leading to Jana.

00:28:02--> 00:28:10

You can be among those who prevent themselves when their desire when the handcuffs are needed. How are

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

they prevent

00:28:14--> 00:28:22

they're not following it. What does the law senior law says? Those who fear standing before a lot

00:28:25--> 00:28:31

even Mr. ruder have a long run he says this area refers to the one who is about to commit sin.

00:28:32--> 00:28:33


00:28:34--> 00:28:38

remembers health standing before a loss

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

on the Day of Judgment being brought down

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

for committing this

00:28:47--> 00:28:50

awesome a comma b he fears standing before his Lord.

00:28:51--> 00:28:53

One result

00:28:54--> 00:28:58

prevent is knifes following its desire.

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

We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from among those who purify their souls and who prefer the axiom over the dunya without we come to the end of this lesson in this session.
