Hawaii be hit v healthy McKenney

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

surfy

00:00:43--> 00:00:52

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala at a man in a Kalani Allah, Allah.

00:00:54--> 00:01:05

Allah Allah He was so happy woman that we had you. Mr. Navi sunette de la Yomi Dean, alumna alumna and Fiona onefamily Bhima alum Tina was

00:01:16--> 00:01:22

una Sana. My bad Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

Moving on to the next parable

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

that we have

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

in salthill had

00:01:36--> 00:01:39

a loss of Hannah who attalla here gives us the example

00:01:40--> 00:01:46

of the mushnik the one who associates partners with him subhana wa tada

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

What is he like? Or what is his ship like?

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

And what is it what is his state like?

00:01:56--> 00:02:00

And so a lots of kind of huhtala says here in verse 31, of sorbitol Hajj

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

when they usually can be layer heater and NEMA hot Romina summer Oh to Hawaii be here re houfy Fatah tofu, tofu, outer we be here to FEMA cannons.

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

And whoever associate partners with Allah

00:02:20--> 00:02:31

is like someone who has fallen from the sky and is either snatched away by the birds or swept by the wind to a remote place.

00:02:33--> 00:02:37

And so the previous verse here in sort of hedge

00:02:38--> 00:02:46

ended with a lock command in commanding us to stay away from the filth of idols.

00:02:48--> 00:03:05

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala said 3020 Buddha register Mina hootenanny would you tell me bucola Zoo, so avoid, stay away from the uncleanliness of idols and avoid false statements.

00:03:06--> 00:03:07

And so,

00:03:08--> 00:03:17

when idols become attached to a person's heart, it is like filth that is surrounding his heart.

00:03:18--> 00:03:19

Just like

00:03:20--> 00:03:27

a person who does not wash himself, he ends up having filth on his body and his clothing.

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

So that is physical filth.

00:03:33--> 00:03:39

And this that we're talking about here is a spiritual kind of filth.

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

And Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to

00:03:45--> 00:03:58

the Musha deikun those who associate partners with him so Hannah, a lot of refers to them as being nagus. Yeah, you had Latina admin in elementary school and address

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

filaria horrible mosquito harana data me him had.

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

Allah says, Oh, you believe the machinery cool or not? Yes, they are filthy. Obviously, when we say filthy here, it does not mean physical filth.

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

Because some kofod perhaps are more,

00:04:20--> 00:04:35

more clean and take care of their personal hygiene. More than some Muslims. But that is not what we're talking about here. Rather when a lot talks about the field of ship or the machete goon

00:04:37--> 00:04:45

it is talking about the filth of their beliefs, the filth of what they are attached to.

00:04:46--> 00:04:54

And so lots of head who Italia here commanded us to stay away from the filth of idols. Why?

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

Because the make your heart unclean.

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

Until

00:05:03--> 00:05:09

right after that Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us to be hoonah thought to him. So Hannah.

00:05:11--> 00:05:18

What does that mean? And Hanif is a person who inclines to something.

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

He inclines towards something.

00:05:24--> 00:05:31

And so here are lots of Hannah who tada says una de la la he over euro machete keen.

00:05:33--> 00:05:42

After commanding us to stay away from the filth of idols, and idol worship, right after that Allah commands us to be who NASA

00:05:44--> 00:05:50

and NASA was a term that used to be used to describe

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

anyone who was upon Toshi.

00:05:54--> 00:06:00

Anyone who used to stay away from idol worship, and only used to worship a lot alone

00:06:02--> 00:06:09

before Islam came. And so in the days of Jamelia before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent with the revelation.

00:06:11--> 00:06:24

Anyone who is found not worshipping idols, because idol worship was rampant and widespread, not only in the, among the Arabs, but in many other civilizations of the earth.

00:06:26--> 00:06:34

So whoever was not worshiping idols, and only worshiping a lot alone, he was termed as a Hanif

00:06:36--> 00:06:43

attributing him to Ibrahim alayhis. Salam, as Allah tells us, that Ibrahim alayhis salam can Hanif and

00:06:45--> 00:07:08

that he was a Hanif. And so, the plural of Hanif is shown as a loss of Hannah hula Tara says, una de la la he, over Yamashina D, inclined only to Allah, not associating anything with him. subhanho wa Taala, then right after that, Allah gives us this example of the machinery.

00:07:10--> 00:07:21

And so law gives us this example of the mushrik, comparing him to one who is headed towards destruction, without any chance of being saved

00:07:22--> 00:07:23

from that destruction.

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

And so since associating partners with Allah

00:07:31--> 00:07:39

is the Greatest crime, the greatest injustice that a person can do to himself, a lot compares him to one of two people.

00:07:40--> 00:07:44

A lot compares him to one of two people. The first one

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

who

00:07:47--> 00:07:49

is thrown from the sky.

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

And then

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

he is snatched by birds

00:07:57--> 00:07:59

who take him and carry him up into pieces.

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

The second

00:08:04--> 00:08:10

is one who is falling from the sky. And then fierce winds,

00:08:11--> 00:08:16

they take him and they throw him to a remote place of the earth

00:08:18--> 00:08:23

to a remote desert, a place where he has no chance of surviving.

00:08:27--> 00:08:33

And so these are the two scenarios that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us here concerning the mushnik

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

that he is like someone who is falling from the sky.

00:08:39--> 00:08:49

And then either the birds they snatch him and tear him up into pieces, or he has taken by fierce winds

00:08:50--> 00:08:58

that throw him down into a remote place of the earth where he has no chance of survival. Another way to look at it

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

is that the sky,

00:09:02--> 00:09:06

the sky represents here, and he man until hate

00:09:08--> 00:09:17

and so from the sky from above him and descends or sends a man down and to Allah in a sense.

00:09:19--> 00:09:23

Whatever good deeds we do, they ascend up to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:24--> 00:09:35

So the sky is like, till he then he man. So the one who falls from the sky is like one who abandons amen until hate.

00:09:38--> 00:09:42

So he falls to the lowest of the lowest depths of the earth

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

and falling down

00:09:48--> 00:09:53

to the lowest depths of the earth. This resembles his pain and suffering

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

and the depression

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

The darkness, that the mushrik he lives and he goes through in this life

00:10:11--> 00:10:19

and the birds that snatch him and tear him apart. This resembles the devils that Allah sends to,

00:10:20--> 00:10:23

to this individual, misguiding him,

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

sending him a stray.

00:10:27--> 00:10:37

And so the mushrik is surrounded by the devils by the shell team, who disturbed him who caused him Worry, worry and grief.

00:10:40--> 00:10:43

As for the wind, then it resembles

00:10:44--> 00:10:45

his house,

00:10:46--> 00:10:58

his whims, his desires that drag him to the lowest depths of ignorance and darkness, away from the high elevated sky, representing coheed and Eman.

00:10:59--> 00:11:12

So this is, you know, these are different ways that we could look at this parable that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us here concerning concerning the mushnik. Among the lessons that we learn from this parable is

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

firstly,

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

being devoted to a lot of loan,

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

referring all your matters to a lot of loan.

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

This on the one hand,

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

and on the other hand, associating partners with him.

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

In that devotion,

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

these two things can never come together.

00:11:44--> 00:11:48

These two things can never come together in one heart.

00:11:49--> 00:11:55

Because tawheed and Schick are two opposites that can never come together.

00:11:57--> 00:12:00

They are like two opposites that can never come together.

00:12:01--> 00:12:12

That is a reality of tawheed and [???]. And it's unfortunate that today, many Muslims are ignorant of the basics of tawheed.

00:12:13--> 00:12:17

And what constitutes shift. And so many Muslims,

00:12:18--> 00:12:26

they think that share only means to go to an idol, and to worship an idol.

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

And to devote yourself to an idol.

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

And that as long as I'm not doing that,

00:12:35--> 00:12:43

I have never fallen into shape. And so these Muslims, they think that if they go to the grave of a saint,

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

or a prophet, or whoever it is,

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

and they become devoted to that thing.

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

And they make dua,

00:12:57--> 00:13:01

to the person in that grave. Do you think that this does not constitute ship?

00:13:03--> 00:13:06

They think and they believe that this is completely fine.

00:13:07--> 00:13:11

Whereas the reality is that this is the very definition of ship

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

to direct your evaluator

00:13:15--> 00:13:20

to direct your worship to other than a loss of Hannah What?

00:13:23--> 00:13:27

And so they think that they are people of Toshi, whereas they are people of Shrek.

00:13:29--> 00:13:33

And it's unfortunate that many Muslims, they have this conception

00:13:34--> 00:13:35

that

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

a Muslim can never be referred to as a Muslim,

00:13:40--> 00:14:04

or Muslim, as long as he says the Shahada. And he believes in, you know, the Kalima and the pillars of the man. And he believes in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and he believes in the Acura and he believes in the Quran, and so on and so forth, that you can never call him a mechanic. And it's impossible for him to fall into ship.

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

Whereas, the reality is,

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

that it is possible and we see it before our eyes, in many Muslim countries where

00:14:16--> 00:14:20

people, Muslims have unfortunately fallen to ship

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

whether they know it or they don't know it.

00:14:24--> 00:14:29

And so, tawheed and ship can never come together in a person's heart.

00:14:30--> 00:14:37

If the heat is there, then ship can ever enter. Because if ship enters, then that tawheed is gone.

00:14:39--> 00:14:45

If shark enters, then there is no more to heat. These are two opposites that can never come together.

00:14:46--> 00:14:48

And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala here.

00:14:50--> 00:14:51

He makes this clear distinction.

00:14:52--> 00:14:56

He tells us hoonah lillahi wa rahmatullah Kenobi.

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

The

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

Don't be

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

inclined towards a lot alone.

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

But while you're most likely gonna be without associating partners with him, so kind of with that, the second lesson that we learned from this parable

00:15:14--> 00:15:26

is that the one who abandons tawheed and Eman and accepts share can and kufr is like one who basically he went mountain climbing.

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

And he made it to the top of the mountain.

00:15:32--> 00:15:37

And then after that, what happens? He is taken and he's thrown down the mountain.

00:15:40--> 00:15:44

He went up in a noble and honorable way.

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

full of glory, pride.

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

Yes, I made it to the top.

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

But then

00:15:55--> 00:16:05

how did he come down, he came down humiliated. This is the example of the one who abandons to hate and

00:16:06--> 00:16:13

this is also the example of the more Ted the apostate, who was once a Muslim, a believer,

00:16:14--> 00:16:17

and he had no heat he had a man.

00:16:18--> 00:16:22

And then he threw it away. And he preferred Cofer and ship.

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

And so

00:16:26--> 00:16:35

he is like one who made it to the top of the mountain in an honorable way. But then he was after that thrown down, in a very humiliated way.

00:16:36--> 00:16:42

The third lesson that we learned from this parable is that whoever abandons a man

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

is accompanied by the devil's the child,

00:16:48--> 00:17:00

who make him to wander about in his life, who make him to wander about in life in confusion, causing him worry, causing him grief, causing him depression.

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

And

00:17:05--> 00:17:16

this is the reality of anyone who abandons the guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala, whether it be a cafe, or whether it even be a Muslim, who is only Muslim by name,

00:17:17--> 00:17:21

but he doesn't do anything that is required of a Muslim to do.

00:17:22--> 00:17:34

And so such a person is accompanied by the devils in this life. He is accompanied by the shy LP and these devils. They make him to wander about in life.

00:17:36--> 00:17:44

Confused, in darkness, and that's why so many of these people, they fall into depression.

00:17:45--> 00:17:51

And when they fall into that depression, they want to end their lives and commit suicide.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

Why? because of a lack of

00:17:56--> 00:18:00

a lack of a man that will help them through every difficult situation.

00:18:02--> 00:18:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that that is the end result of those who abandon

00:18:09--> 00:18:15

his guidance, woman out of line victory for in Allahumma shaitaan banca

00:18:16--> 00:18:24

that whoever turns away from my remembrance, and here it refers to the Quran, whoever abandons the Quran,

00:18:25--> 00:18:26

then,

00:18:27--> 00:18:35

for him is a miserable life, for him is a miserable life. And so

00:18:36--> 00:18:40

this is the parable that we have here concerning the mushnik
